Annie: Do you have to get that?
Scott: Ohh. Nah. Whoever it is, they can wait. This, on the other hand -- I've been waiting forever for this.
Annie: Are you sure you don't have to answer? You are the big boss now.
Scott: Let J.R. handle this one, huh? What?
Annie: I love that he has to take orders from you now.
Annie: Ohh! Seriously, Barry, leave us alone!
Scott: Ok. [Sighs] It's J.R.
Opal: Bianca Montgomery, as I live and breathe! Oh, you are a sight for sore eyes, my darling girl! Oh, I'm so sorry. I am the one that pushed your mama to go to pigeon hollow. I'm so sorry.
Bianca: It's not like she could've stayed away. Mom loved Palmer.
Opal: Yes, I know. But, you know, it should've been me dealing with Palmer's will. Then none of this would've happened.
Bianca: Oh, stop. You had no control over Palmer's last wishes.
Opal: Well, I feel like I don't have much control over anything anymore. I'm just at my wit's end.
Bianca: I was wondering, you must know people from pigeon hollow, right, through Palmer?
Bianca: The more people searching who are familiar with the area --
Opal: Oh, honey, don't worry. I am on it. That is under control. I just promise you that I am going to find your mama, and we will bring her home. And once we do, we are gonna lay a smackdown on that doctor and Mrs. David Hayward.
David: So what do you think? Red? White? Hmm. Surprise, surprise -- there's even champagne.
Greenlee: Perfect. Then maybe we could order Erica's head on a platter and invite Bianca to come while we carve it up.
Greenlee: I'm sorry. I don't have time for this.
Woman: Mrs. Hayward, any word on Erica Kane's plane crash?
David: Excuse me. We're trying to have dinner here.
Greenlee: It's ok. If you're looking for information on Erica, I would suggest contacting the Pine Valley Police Department. They're working on the investigation.
Reporter: What will happen to Fusion if she doesn't resurface?
Greenlee: It will be difficult for the company for many reasons. But we have survived all kinds of crises, and I have no doubt we will survive this. Reporter: Are you prepared --
David: Ok, you know, now I have to ask you to leave.
Singer: No, don't let go hold on, baby love is coming
David: Can't order that wine fast enough.
Greenlee: You know, forget the wine. I can't do this. I have to get back to work.
Krystal: Hey, hey, where are you going?
Jack: I have to find her, Krystal. I can't give up.
Krystal: I'm not suggesting that you give up, but heading out of here in pitch-blackness? Come on, Jackson. What if something happened to you?
Jack: That's a chance I have to take.
Caleb: Open your eyes. Temperature's dropping. We got to get back to the cabin.
Erica: Not yet. My -- my ankle. Please.
Caleb: Hey, hey, come on. Focus. You think I want to be doing this?
Erica: No. I think you'd just as soon I die so you can be alone again.
Caleb: Oh, right. Is that what you think? You think I'm incapable of caring, hmm? You think I don't know?
Erica: Know what?
Caleb: About loss.
Krystal: Come back inside, get some rest. You'll have more energy to search in the morning.
Jack: "Morning?" Krystal, morning could be too late.
Jack: I already feel bad enough that I let this happen. I mean, why didn't I see this coming? Erica, Greenlee -- two forces of nature obviously on a collision course. It was only a matter of time.
Krystal: Jackson, you did the only thing you could. You tried to love them both.
Jack: Now what am I gonna do? Because if Erica is dead, then Greenlee will be just as dead to me.
Greenlee: Can I come in?
Opal: Well. I'm kind of surprised that you would have the nerve to show up here. It's all over town about you and Dr. Doom --
Greenlee: Being responsible for what happened to Erica. Yes, I've heard the rumors. I didn't come here to defend myself. I came here because I need your help.
Opal: What could you want from me?
Greenlee: Information. Anything you can tell me about Erica's trip that we may not already know.
Opal: Well, all I've got is the same dirt as everybody else. Oh, unless you're thinking that maybe I would've gotten some messages from the great beyond, psychically speaking? Is that it?
Greenlee: Have you?
Opal: Do you think that I would be standing here with you right now if I had? Anyway, since I lost Palmer, I am no longer messing with other dimensions. It's just too painful.
Greenlee: Oh, God. You don't think Erica's with Palmer?
Opal: I will not even allow myself to think that, no. But if she is, be prepared to be haunted for the rest of your life.
Erica: It shouldn't be this cold in June.
Caleb: Oh, you're complaining again. That's a good sign.
Erica: What'd you lose, Caleb?
Caleb: My house. Hmm.
Erica: That's not what you meant. Was it a woman? A family? The owner of the locket I found?
Caleb: You want a campfire story? I'll tell you a real scary one.
Erica: No, I don't want a story. I want the truth. Because, Caleb, you out here -- something just doesn't add up. That locket and the look in your eyes when I told you about my children and how much I love them -- I saw some recognition in there, in you.
Caleb: You have no idea what you saw.
Erica: Why are you up here, all cut off from the rest of the world? What happened to you, Caleb? Look, you know I'm not gonna stop asking. And you want me to stay awake, right? So you keep talking.
Caleb: All right. Once upon a time -- maybe -- there was a man, and maybe there was a woman, and maybe together they had what everybody ever dreamt about. And then maybe one day they lost it. It all just went away. The end.
Scott: So I was thinking we should move your things into my room, hmm?
Annie: But then where are you gonna -- oh. Oh, really?
Scott: Unless you're not ready?
Annie: No, I -- I am. I am ready. You don't know how happy that makes me.
Scott: Ditto. Just be prepared -- I hog the covers.
Annie: Thank you, Scott, for tonight. It was really, really special.
Scott: That was just a warm-up. Bye.
Annie: Waiting up for me?
J.R.: I was working.
Annie: Oh. I thought maybe you were in here thinking about how sleeping with me would "get me out of your system."
J.R.: You can't actually believe that I was serious about that.
Annie: I don't put anything past you. But I found a better way.
J.R.: A better way of what?
Annie: A better way of getting these thoughts out of my head.
J.R.: Thoughts of me?
Annie: Whatever it is, it's gone. At least for me, it is.
J.R.: Oh. So you had an exorcism?
Annie: I guess you could call it that. But Scott would probably call it the best night of his life.
Annie: Yeah, the whole "getting you out of my system" thing? Completely unnecessary. One night with your cousin and, boom, you're out.
J.R.: Just like that?
Annie: Just like that.
J.R.: Mm-hmm. That's good. That's great. That makes it a whole lot easier on everyone else.
Annie: Mm-hmm. Now, if only you could do the same with Marissa.
J.R.: Huh. You have no idea what's going on with my marriage.
Annie: I know she's not sleeping in your room. And I know you're still looking at me like you --
J.R.: You're overselling it, Annie. It's like you're trying to convince yourself that Scott's the answer.
Annie: He is. I have no doubts.
J.R.: You might want to tell your face that.
Annie: Why can't you just let me be happy?
J.R.: Because you don't let --
Scott: Is there a problem?
Annie: No. Just J.R. getting in my face again.
Scott: Like it or not, J.R --
J.R.: It's "not."
Scott: Annie's here for good. So either find a way to live with it --
J.R.: Or get out? As much as you two would love that, I'm staying put with my wife and my son.
Scott: So how do you propose we deal with this?
J.R.: Well, after everything that's gone down, we're still family, right? Now that my father's gone, it's pretty clear that we need each other more than ever.
Greenlee: I still can't believe this is happening.
Opal: You know what they say: Karma is a you-know-what. It comes back to bite you every time.
Greenlee: I did not do this to Erica.
Opal: Oh, no? You look mighty concerned for a gal who had no part.
Greenlee: Because everyone and their mother is blaming me.
Opal: Maybe that is because you're guilty as sin.
Greenlee: What happened to nice opal? Remember her? The one who power-walks in the park? The one who told me not so long ago that she was proud of the way I was handling myself?
Opal: Yeah, well, that was before you set my Erica up and did lord knows what to her airplane.
Greenlee: For the last time --
Opal: Oh, stop it! Just save it, ok? I know that you've been having a tough time. I know that it can't be easy to come back from the dead, but that does not give you the right. These are people's lives we're talking about here.
Greenlee: Well, don't you think I know that?
Opal: Just because your life got turned upside down doesn't give you the right to torch Erica's! Now, you may not have shot down her airplane personally, but I got a pretty good hunch that you set those wheels in motion. And if I were you, I'd stop by a church on my way home.
Greenlee: I've already sent up my prayers, believe me.
Opal: Yeah, well, for your sake and for Erica's, I just hope to heaven there's somebody up there listening.
David: All right, great. Bianca. Hi. It's great to see you. Listen, um, I just want you to know if anything's happened to your mother --
Bianca: You'll never forgive yourself?
David: I'll never get over it. Because I care about her -- you know that -- just like I care about you. Bianca, you were like a daughter to me.
Bianca: That was a long time ago.
David: But my feelings haven't changed for you or for Erica. I would never wish either of you harm.
Bianca: Fine. I'll give you that. You don't want my mother dead.
David: Thank you.
Bianca: But you're still hiding something, David. I can see it, feel it. If you honestly care about me, you'll tell me what it is. What happened to my mother's plane?
David: I said everything there is to say.
Bianca: Are you kidding me? You haven't said anything. Don't forget I know you well. You lie as easily as most people breathe.
David: I would never lie about my feelings for your mother.
Bianca: No. No, you'd only lie to me about my own daughter.
David: That was complicated.
Bianca: What isn't? Huh. You think I'm an easy mark? You win me over, you'll win over the whole town? Not happening, David. You and Greenlee are on your own.
David: Didn't you come here to get something to eat?
Bianca: Suddenly I'm not so hungry.
Jack: If we're gonna stay, let me get this fire back up.
Krystal: All right. And as soon as day breaks, we'll get moving. Deal?
Jack: Deal. You drive a very hard bargain.
Krystal: Yeah. Hmm. Probably why I'm still single.
Jack: No, you're still single because Tad martin is a fool.
Krystal: No. No, no, no, no. You know, I -- I'm not even sure I want Tad. I mean, really, I think it was just proximity. Hmm. I must've been crazy to try to rekindle something with my ex anyway. I mean, that's just -- blah. It's like going back to a dry well. Hmm. Red flags all over the place. I am sorry. I -- look, I didn't mean -- I was talking about Tad and me. No, Jackson, you and Erica are a completely different situation. You two are on the path to happily ever after, no matter how long it's gonna take you to get there.
Jack: You really think so?
Krystal: Yeah. I really do.
Erica: So is that really what happened? You were in love, and you lost her? And so you banished yourself up here to this forest? You live up here in some sort of self-imposed punishment?
Caleb: Is that what I said? I don't remember saying any of that. You know, maybe I'm just saying stuff just to keep you from falling asleep.
Erica: I don't believe that.
Caleb: Well, I'm sure you don't.
Erica: What I do believe is that keeping secrets in is never a good idea.
Caleb: Yeah, well, it depends on the secrets. There's a big difference between secrets and having respect for somebody's privacy.
Erica: During one of my divorces --
Caleb: Number 22.
Erica: No, number 6 --
Erica: I was fighting for custody of my little girl Bianca, and I had a secret. I had a terrible secret. And if it had come out -- well, I lied. And I asked the man I loved to lie right along with me.
Caleb: The lawyer?
Caleb: So what happened?
Erica: He couldn't do it. Jack had a lot of integrity. He still does. I mean, I didn't see it that way at the time. Oh, God, I was -- I mean, I was so angry at him.
Caleb: Did you lose custody of your kid?
Erica: Yes, I did. And I lost the man I love. So what I'm saying is that I understand how you feel, Caleb. I understand what it feels like to lose someone you love and to believe that it's all through your own fault.
Caleb: You know what I think? I think you ought to take a breather. You're wearing yourself out. You're wearing me out.
Erica: Ok, I'll stop talking on one condition -- that you start.
Caleb: I've got no more to say.
Erica: Ok. Then I guess I'll just have to tell you all about my cosmetics company.
Caleb: On second thought --
Erica: Caleb, you gave me just a tiny glimpse into your life, and then you -- you shut down. I want to hear more.
Caleb: There's no more to tell.
Erica: Tell me about that locket. Did it belong to this woman? Was she beautiful? Was she as stubborn as you are? Did she break your heart or did you break hers?
Caleb: You -- you really don't know when to quit, do you?
Erica: You loved her. I can see that from a mile. A man gets that look in his eyes.
Caleb: You know what? You talk too much.
Annie: What is this, J.R., some kind of trick?
J.R.: No trick. We're all family, right?
Scott: That's the idea.
Annie: Last time I trusted you, it cost me my marriage.
J.R.: But you moved right along, didn't you?
Scott: Oh, no, no, no, no. Don't talk to her like that.
J.R.: I'm just stating a fact. Annie's in the picture.
Scott: Yeah, she is. And just so you know, she's going to be moving into my room.
Marissa: She is?
J.R.: Of course she is.
Scott: So that means you need to start treating her with some respect. So this truce, is it for real?
J.R.: It's for real, for the sake of this family and for the sake of the company.
Scott: Good. Good. Because we're all Chandlers, right?
Erica: Why did you save me?
Caleb: Because you were there.
Erica: I don't think you want to live up here all by yourself anymore for the rest of your life. I still don't know why you were running.
Caleb: Who's running?
Erica: You were running from something -- life, love, all the things that real living entails. You could have that all again, you know.
Caleb: Have what?
Erica: The things I've been talking about -- joy, love, hope.
Caleb: Who are you?
Erica: I'm Erica Kane.
Caleb: We're gonna freeze if we stay out here.
Jack: This bracelet -- this is Erica's bracelet. I know. I bought it for her. That means she was here. She was here in this cabin.
Krystal: Well, that means she's close by.
Jack: All right, look, I know you think it's stupid --
Krystal: No, no, no, I don't care how dark it is. Let's go. Let's --
Bianca: Bonjour. Hanging in there. How are you guys? Oh, yeah, of course. Put her on. Hi, Miranda! Are you having fun with mommy Reese? Oh, sweetie, I know. I'm worried, too. But that's why I'm here, remember? To help find her and bring her home. She's gonna be ok. That's right -- because she's a Kane woman, just like us. I love you, Miranda. And give your little sister a kiss for me, ok? One for Reese, too. I'll talk to you later. Bye.
Bianca: Hi. This is Bianca Montgomery. I'm Erica Kane's daughter. Thank you. Um, listen, I'm trying to start -- raise some money for a rescue fund, and I was hoping your company could help. All donations will be matched by Fusion cosmetics.
Bianca: Uh, yeah. Can I call you right back? Thanks.
Greenlee: You can't do that. You don't even work here.
Bianca: I swear to God --
Greenlee: I'm the CEO. Let me. Please, Bianca. I want to help.
Caleb: Ohh. I'm gonna put you down and I'm gonna go get some more firewood. All right? Here we go, kid. Right here.
Caleb: All right?
Erica: Someone's been here. Ohh.
Erica: Hey, Caleb, someone's been here! Hey -- Jack?
Erica: Jack! Jack!
Marissa: That peace offering to Scott seemed kind of out of the blue, huh?
J.R.: Not really. I just want things to calm down around here.
Marissa: Yeah, this whole situation is just so strange. I don't even know how else to describe it.
J.R.: Well, "strange" is a pretty good description, actually. I have an idea. It might help to make things a little more normal around here.
Marissa: Normal's good.
J.R.: Move back into our bed. I miss you. I miss my wife.
Marissa: I want to forgive you, J.R. I do. And I think that I will. I'm sorry. I'm just not ready.
Greenlee: Whatever you need, Fusion's resources are at your disposal. My resources are at your disposal. Whatever I can do.
Bianca: No, thanks.
Greenlee: This isn't the time to be proud, Bianca. Erica needs your help. Does it really matter where it's coming from? You're angry with me. I understand that, but don't let it get in the way. You're going down there to help, right?
Bianca: I crossed off the ones I already called.
Greenlee: I'll pick up where you left off. Hey.
David: "Hey" yourself.
Greenlee: We're calling everyone we can think of, rounding up as much money and as many people as we can in the search for Erica.
David: Great. What can I do?
Bianca: We're ok.
David: Bianca, I'd like to help.
Greenlee: You know, having David is not such a bad idea. Erica might need a doctor.
Bianca: I heard you lost your medical license.
David: That doesn't mean I lost my skills. Say what you like about me as a person, but no one can argue I'm an excellent physician. Ask your sister.
Bianca: Oh, even if you were to come, isn't it illegal for you to treat patients.
Greenlee: I don't think Erica will mind. Do you?
Jack: I can't believe it. I can't believe it. I was so afraid I was never gonna see this gorgeous face again.
Erica: Oh, gorgeous, Jack? I haven't even showered in days.
Jack: Oh, no, you have never looked better to me.
Erica: I was scared, too. I was -- I was so scared. But I knew. I knew you'd find me.
Jack: You bet. And you're here and you're all right. You're all right. Ohh. Oh, but your leg. Honey, are you in pain?
Erica: Not anymore. Thank you.
Krystal: Ahh. God.
Caleb: Who the hell are you?
Krystal: Ohh! Oh, you scared me. Hi. I'm Krystal, Krystal Carey.
Caleb: What are you doing on my property?
Krystal: I'm a friend of Erica's from -- from back home. Were you the one who found her? Well, you're gonna have a lot of grateful people on your hands. She's a very, very popular woman. What's your name?
Krystal: I wouldn't do that if I were you.
Bianca: She's really ok?
Jack: I don't suppose you'd like to talk to her, would you?
Bianca: Yes, please!
Erica: Hi, sweetheart.
Bianca: Hi, mom. You have no idea how good it is to hear your voice. How are you?
Erica: I'm fine, honey. And you didn't have to fly all the way to Pine Valley.
Bianca: Yes, I did. And I can't wait to hug you the minute you get home.
Erica: Me, too.
Bianca: I love you, mom. I love you so much. I'll see you soon.
Erica: I love you, too, so much, sweetheart. Bye.
Bianca: She's alive! My mom's alive!
David: Bianca, that is wonderful news.
Greenlee: I knew she'd pull through. I just knew it.
Bianca: Let me make something really clear. My mom's coming home and I'm beyond grateful, but that doesn't mean I've forgotten. You both had something to do with this. What, I haven't figured out, but I will.
Jack: All right, the rangers are on their way.
Erica: Oh, thank goodness.
Jack: What happened? Are you up for talking about it?
Erica: Yeah. After -- after I met with doc Waller, I called opal. And, Jack, she told me that something had happened at Fusion. Jack, I didn't do it. I would never steal money from the Miranda center.
Jack: Of course you didn't. I know that, believe me. We'll get that all straightened out when we get back home, believe me.
Erica: And I was really desperate to get back to Pine Valley, so -- well, right after we took off, the pilot -- the pilot announced that we had engine trouble. And he said that I should brace for impact.
Jack: Oh, my God.
Erica: And the next thing I knew, I was being carried out of the wreckage.
Jack: Wait a minute. "Carried out"? By who?
Erica: Yeah, by that man. He lives up here in the mountains and he saved my life, Jack.
Krystal: So what happened out there? Was Erica bad off when you found her?
Caleb: Her plane took a nosedive from 35,000 feet into the ground. What do you think?
Krystal: So, uh, so you saved her? You kept her safe all this time?
Caleb: Just get her home and be gone by the time I get back.
Marissa: I just think that it's important for us to take things slow, you know, wait until we're all a little more comfortable.
J.R.: Do you have any idea when that might be?
Marissa: Yeah, I do -- when I'm positive that you really mean it. I'll move back into your bed when you want me there, not when you want to want me there.
J.R.: Uh-oh, incoming! Grr! [J.R. laughs, then kisses A.J.] Ahh.
A.J.: Kiss Mommy now.
Marissa: I think it's past your bedtime now, buster.
J.R.: Yeah. Good night, buddy.
A.J.: Good night.
Marissa: Come on. Let's go. Good night, J.R.
J.R.: Good night. Shouldn't you be upstairs christening your new bedroom?
Annie: Scott's working on the nanotech project. I guess I should go keep the bed warm.
J.R.: Yeah, you do that.
Annie: J.R., What you said before about us all working together and getting along? I hope you meant it.
J.R.: Why wouldn't I?
Annie: I know things got a little weird.
J.R.: Yeah, well, it's done now. Everything's set.
Annie: Thank you.
J.R.: Good night, Annie.
Annie: Good night.
Bianca: My mother did not skim money from the Miranda center. It's named after my daughter, for God's sake.
David: Yeah, I was -- I was shocked about that, too. I -- I just thought maybe it had something to do with desperate times.
Bianca: When's the last time you saw Erica Kane desperate? The focus right now is on mom being ok. But once she's home safe, we're going to find out who did this.
Krystal: I hate to break up the happy reunion, but --
Jack: No, we need to get out of here. We need to get you to a hospital, have that leg looked at, and then we need to get you home.
Erica: "Home"-oh, that sounds so good.
Krystal: Yeah. So who is the grizzly mountain man out there? He seems a little scary.
Erica: Oh, he's not so scary. He -- just a little rough around the edges is all.
Krystal: "A little"?
Erica: No, he saved my life. I actually have to write him a check for destroying his house.
Jack: You don't have to worry about that. I'll take care of that when we get back, ok?
Erica: Well, at least I need to see him to say thank you. I mean, I just don't want to leave without saying good-bye.
Krystal: Oh, um, he left.
Erica: Oh. Then there's nothing stopping us.
Jack: Well, let's get you home, then. Let's get out of here.
Erica: Ok. Oh, Palmer's box. There -- it's under there.
Krystal: Oh, this?
Erica: Ok. So --
Jack: All set?
Erica: Let's get out of here.
Erica: Yes. Let's go home.
