Damon: Hey. I got your text. What's up?

Colby: Just a few surprises.

Damon: Hmm. Doesn't feel like Dragon Slayer 5.

Colby: No, no. It's so much better. Open it.

Damon: A Yankees hat? I can't wear that. They'll take away my Reds fan card.

Colby: No, no, no. Under the hat.

Damon: Oh, Yankees tickets.

Colby: Yeah! Yankee/Red Sox tickets. That's big, right?

Damon: Yeah, it's a great rivalry. Yes.

Colby: And guess what. Gina, who works in the kitchen, she knows some guy who knows some guy who's a front singer of Genghis Tron, and he's gonna set you up with a bunch of gigs at the Knitting Factory and Mercury Lounge.

Damon: I'm not going to New York with you. I -- I want you -- [Kiss]

J.R.: Where's the report for Cortlandt's operating activities for the fiscal quarter?

Scott: Wellington's faxing it over.

J.R.: Oh, I told him to spin those numbers, devalue Cortlandt.

Annie: Well, well, well. Look at you two working together. Caleb Cooney won't know what him him.

Scott: We're meeting him at the club this morning.

Annie: Oh. Is there anything I can do to help?

J.R.: It's just business. Nothing you can concern yourself with.

Annie: Ok, but once the deal is signed, you're gonna need me to, you know, spin the story.

J.R.: That's why we have a PR department.

Annie: Yeah, my PR department. I'm the new head.

Scott: Oh, I brought Annie on board before Palmer's will made us partners. She's part of the team.

Caleb: Hmm.

[Doorbell rings]

[Caleb inhales, exhales deeply]

[Places glass down]

Tad: Caleb? Caleb Cooney, right?

Caleb: The house or the corporation?

Tad: Excuse me?

Caleb: Are you here for the house or the corporation?

Tad: Well, neither. How about we start with a handshake? My name is Thaddeus. Thaddeus Martin. And this is --

Liza: And I'm Liza Colby. Sorry if you've had a bad impression of Pine Valley --

Caleb: Bad impression? So far, everybody that I met in this town is a liar or a hypocrite or both. But I'm sure you two are different.

[Birds chirping]

Erica: I mean, why would Palmer Cortlandt give his electronics company to an irresponsible hermit like Caleb Cooney and expect me to baby-sit him? [Sighs] So I mean, now on top of everything, I have to teach this Neanderthal about the corporate universe.

Jack: I love you.

Erica: What?

Jack: I said I love you, and you need to stop obsessing on Caleb Cooney.

Erica: Jack, I mean, the man is horrible. I just need to vent.

Jack: No, what you need to do is get him out of your mind for an hour or so and relax.

Erica: I'll relax -- later. First, I really need your help, Jack. I need you to help me send him back to the mountains of West Virginia.

Jack: Erica, are you sure that's what you really want? 

Erica: Jack, of course, I want Caleb gone. I mean, he's been completely impossible ever since we met.

Jack: Well, you'll have to teach him a lesson, that Erica Kane needs to be respected. [Chuckles]

Erica: Well, obviously he's too thick to figure that out for himself.

Jack: Obviously.

Erica: But I don't want to waste my time putting him in his place.

Jack: You know, maybe he's just fired off your competitive nature. I mean, the guy doesn't know anything about big business, but once he learns the ropes, he could be a formidable opponent.

Erica: Well, maybe you could work some legal magic.

Jack: I want to focus my magic on something important like the wedding we have to plan.

Erica: You know, Val has scheduled some taste testings for us with five of the country's top chefs.

Jack: Nice.

Erica: I'm gonna text him, and he can give us some dates.

Jack: Actually, I was thinking of something maybe we could tackle today.

Erica: Jack, you don't want to spend the day going over stationery, do you?

Jack: Oh, no. Something much more manly than that. How about a little prewedding feet primping?

Erica: Ha! I love you, Jack.

Jack: [Laughs] I knew that would do it.

Erica: But only Ginger can give me a pedicure.

Jack: Oh.

Tad: Mr. Cooney, I'm sure that people have been crawling all over you since you arrived in town as Palmer's heir, but I assure you that I don't want anything from you. I just, uh, I'm here because of your cousin, Dixie. We were -- we were married, and I know that if she were alive today, she'd be the first one over here to say hi.

Caleb: Well, you're right about that. I spent a lot of time with her when she was young. She had a lot of spunk, soul of an angel.

Tad: That's one of the things I loved most about her. You should meet her daughter, Kathy. She's really a chip off the old block, you know. She's got her mother's heart and that same no-nonsense edge.

Caleb: Yeah, well, this town could use a few more straight-shooters like that, couldn't it?

Tad: I'm also a second father to Dixie's son, J.R. Chandler.

Caleb: Chandlers here, Chandlers there, Chandlers, Chandlers everywhere.

J.R.: No, no. The profit margins are still too high. Take the depreciation numbers and compare them with the long-term debt. Yes.

Annie: J.R.'s pissed. He hates that you made me new head of PR.

Scott: No. His head is in this proposal for Cortlandt. It's just --

Annie: Oh. He so wants to prove himself to Adam.

Scott: He told you that?

Annie: I can just tell. But don't worry, I know what is at stake for the two of us. We get Palmer's company, and we make sure nobody knows you ever stole that nanotech project. And I can really do this, Scott. I mean, I've done corporate communications in New York and for Cambias, and you should see how many PR nightmares I covered up at Fusion.

Scott: Annie, Annie.

Annie: Don't even get me started.

Scott: Annie, you don't have to sell me, ok? I know you're perfect for the job.

Annie: Ok.

J.R.: Now all we have to do is to get Caleb to trust us. That's how we're gonna get Cortlandt. We'll bring up our family connection, my childhood in the hollow. He'll be eating out of our hands in no time.

[Cell phone rings]

Scott: Chandler. I'll handle this. Yeah.

Annie: You hate that I'm doing this job.

J.R.: I'm not questioning your ability. It just seems that Caleb's pretty picky about who he deals with.

Annie: This isn't about Caleb.

J.R.: No. No, it's not.

Tad: So you obviously already know a little bit about Pine Valley.

Caleb: Make yourself comfortable. Let me ask you something, slick.

Tad: Shoot. Obviously a bad choice of words.

Caleb: What happened to Dixie?

Tad: Uh, she passed away.

Caleb: I know that. But what happened to her, here? What did this place do to her?

Liza: Ok, what exactly is wrong with you?

Tad: No, no. It's ok.

Liza: It's not ok. You don't know anything about Tad. You don't know how much he misses her and how he suffers every day because he couldn't do anything to --

Tad: Liza, Liza. Listen -- Mr. Cooney, I meant exactly what I said, ok? The only reason I stopped by is to tell you it's nice to meet you. If you ever want to stop by the house, have a little sort of family reunion, I wish you would.

Caleb: I won't be staying.

Liza: Tad is being so nice to you, and you're asking us to leave. Ok. Hmm.

Caleb: I got things to do.

Tad: Well, what you've got is family. Whether you know it or not, you have me, you got Kathy, J.R. Even my mother, Opal, she was the love of PC's life. Life is a lot better when you got people to share it with, you know, family. And if you want to get to know yours, anytime, like I said, you're welcome. At least you can meet Dixie's kids.

Caleb: Kids are scared of me.

Liza: Hmm.

Tad: Well, ok, in case you ever change your mind, call me.

J.R.: Annie, it's within no one's best interest for us to be working so closely together.

Annie: I know, but -- I mean, we'll stick to the plan. We can do that. We can. And I'm not gonna give in. It's just being part of this company, you know, it feels good. It's so important to everybody in this house, and I feel like the company is another member of the family.

J.R.: I can't argue with that. The glory of Candler Enterprises has been drilled into me ever since I was 2.

Annie: I know. Well, being involved and feeling like a real team player, it makes me feel like I belong. And I've taken a lot from this family, so it feels good to be able to give something back, something positive. Maybe that sounds stupid to you, but --

J.R.: No, it doesn't sound stupid to me.

[Door opens and closes]

Krystal: Some serious negotiating going on in here?

J.R.: Mm-hmm. I didn't expect to see you this morning.

Krystal: Apparently. Where's Marissa?

J.R.: She's dropping A.J. off at the swim camp.

Krystal: And here you are.

J.R.: Chandler's about to make an offer to Cortlandt Electronics. You met Caleb Cooney on his home turf. Is he as rough as everyone says he is?

Krystal: Well, he doesn't seem like the CEO type.

J.R.: Good. It'll make it that much easier for us.

Annie: Hmm. With the nanotech invention and this new acquisition, I think Candler is going to be back on top.

J.R.: Mm-hmm.

Krystal: Ah. Go somewhere. I need to talk to J.R., alone.

[Annie huffs and leaves]

Krystal: What is she doing still hanging around here?

J.R.: She's with Scott.

Krystal: Yeah? And she was with Adam. That didn't stop her or you.

J.R.: Look, what I did to Marissa destroyed her faith in me and nearly took our marriage with it. I would never endanger the life that we're trying to build with some meaningless night with Annie. I swear to you. You do believe me?

Krystal: I never believe anyone who gives me the hard sell.

Colby: Mmm.

Damon: Mmm.

Colby: If you come to New York with me, it'll be like that all the time.

Damon: I can't bail on Tad. You know that.

Colby: No, I don't know that, and it doesn't make any sense. Or maybe there is something else you can't bail on.

Damon: Wait. You think there's another girl?

Colby: Damon, I tell you I love you, and you don't say it back. We were gonna go to New York together. Instead, you took two grand from my mother, and you told me to go have fun alone.

Damon: You were -- everything was really cool, and then we went to the wedding and you got all weird.

Colby: Well, I want us to be together, and I thought that you wanted that, too!

Damon: I do, but you want things that I'm not ready for.

Colby: Like a commitment, right?

Damon: [Sighs] You -- I got to go.

Colby: Fine! Go! I don't care! Ooh! Ah! [Cries] Ugh!

[Phone hits bed]

[Colby sighs]

Annie: Doing some decorating?

Colby: Get out, Annie.

Annie: What did Damon do?

Colby: It's none of your business.

[Cell phone rings]

Annie: Oh. You do know you can't kill a cell phone.

Colby: Damon? Oh, hi. Um -- I am so sorry. I, uh, can't come to New York anymore. You're gonna have to find somebody else for the internship.

Annie: Are you really going to throw your life away for some guy?

J.R.: I love Marissa.

Krystal: I'm not the one you should be telling. Don't break my girl's heart again.

Marissa: What's going on?

J.R.: I was just telling your mother why I left the beach so early, because I couldn't stand to be away from you. She's been studying for the bar, and I just know that she's gonna ace it.

Marissa: Yeah, I hope so. You must have read my mind. I was gonna call you. I'm really sorry about the other day.

Krystal: Ah -- you know what? Why don't we go somewhere for a couple of hours?

Marissa: Sure. Yeah.

Krystal: Ok.

Marissa: But first, um -- I know I've been saying that it's time for me to move back into our bedroom, but I finally did it. This morning I put my things in our room. And I put something else back where it's supposed to be, too.

[J.R. kisses Marissa when she shows him her wedding ring on her finger]

Liza: That Caleb Cooney's a first-class jerk.

Tad: No. He just wants to be left alone.

Liza: Be my pleasure.

Tad: Yeah?

Liza: Yeah.

Tad: You're not remotely interested about why he's so messed up?

Liza: No. I think I've wasted enough time with that overbearing bully.

Tad: I don't know. I kind of feel sorry for him, you know. I've been in his shoes before.

Liza: Are you kidding me? You are just the opposite.

Tad: No, I mean, you know, pushing people away like that, you know, avoiding commitment. And what the hell, I did it to you not too long ago, remember? But unlike Mr. Cooney, I know it's a mistake -- one I don't intend to repeat anytime soon -- no matter how risky it is.

Liza: You think we're risky?

Tad: Oh, yeah. [Snickers]

Liza: Risqué.

Tad: Risky is good. Or risqué. That's even better, actually. [Kiss]

Erica: Well, this doesn't feel like a pre-wedding "feet prep" place.

Jack: Well, that's because you're not using your imagination. Now, I want you to close your eyes -- huh? Close 'em?

Erica: Ok.

Jack: And I want you to imagine that we are at our wedding reception. Aw, nice smile for that. I like that. Got it? Hold it. Hold it.

[Music plays at the Yacht Club as Jack and Erica dance]

Jack: Ah. You see, before you hire a band to play at your wedding, you have to make sure they can play your song.

Erica: Oh!

Jack: Oh, sorry. Ha ha! Gee, I'm a little rusty. Sorry.

Erica: That's ok.

Jack: Ok?

Erica: That's fine.

Jack: Yeah? Ok. Let's go. Here we go. [Chuckles]

Man: You give me such an easy feeling I get --

Jack: Whoops!

Erica: Oh!

Jack: Sorry. Ha. Come here.

Erica: I don't really understand what happened. I mean, we always danced so beautifully together.

Jack: Yeah, well, I just think we need to find our old rhythm again.

Erica: Yeah.

Jack: Yeah.

Man: And here we are together and I know this love will last

[Erica looks over Jack's shoulder at Caleb]

Annie: I have trashed plenty of rooms in my day, and it was always when I was hurting. A lot.

Colby: Well, I am not hurting, so thank you so much for your crappy wisdom.

Annie: Ok, be quiet and listen. You've lost a lot recently. Your Uncle Stuart, your dad. You almost lost J.R., but trust me, you cannot fill that empty void with a guy.

Colby: I'm not you, and Damon is not Ryan or my dad or Scott or J.R.

Annie: If you give yourself completely to some guy, you make your life entirely about him, your life becomes meaningless. It becomes empty. I'm telling you. God, don't be afraid to make something of yourself. You have this amazing internship opportunity in New York. It's just waiting for you, and you're gonna blow it all on Damon?

Colby: I love Damon. We belong together. A job is not gonna change my life. Being away from Damon is gonna kill me.

Annie: Oh, stop being so dramatic. This fashion house thing in New York, this is huge. This could be your dream job, and if Damon is the guy, then he'll support you. Even if that means letting you go.

Colby: But I don't want him to let me go.

Annie: Do not let your feelings for some guy get in the way of the hopes and the dreams that you have for yourself. If you do, I would feel really, really sorry for you.

Liza: So you're sure that Opal's not gonna come parading in here with Kathy and Jenny for a tea party or something?

Tad: Oh, yeah. We're good to go.

Liza: Are you sure these cards aren't marked?

Tad: Huh. Sweetheart, I don't have to stack the deck to get you naked. All right, gin.

Liza: What?

[Tad laughs]

Liza: Unbelievable.

Tad: Take it off, baby, come on. You know you want it.

Liza: Ok, you are definitely --

Tad: Wait, hold it, hold it. I got to get my --

[Liza laughs as she undoes her shirt]

Tad: Ok, I'm good.

Liza: I think you're enjoying this a little too much.

Tad: Oh, I don't know about that.

[Liza chuckles as she sits on Tad's lap]

Tad: Oh. Is nice.

Liza: Yeah?

Tad: Oh, they are very tender, tasty ones. Ow!

Liza: Uh, excuse me. What are these? [Finds cards in Tad's pocket]

Tad: Nothing. Give me that. They're just -- I'm interested in getting your clothes off. What do you want from me? And if you hadn't been busy flirting, it's like doing all this stuff, you would have noticed my little sleight of hand.

Liza: Sleight of hands? You want to work on a sleight-of-hands trick, I have a better idea.

Tad: Ok. I'll bet you do.

Liza: Yeah.

Tad: Hey, girl --

Liza: Oh. Ahem.

[Damon walks in]

Scott: Caleb, good to see you. My cousin, J.R. Chandler.

J.R.: I've heard a lot about you. It's nice to finally meet you. How is West Virginia treating you these days? It's been a while since I've been there. Sure would be nice to go visit the old homestead. Is there a problem?

Caleb: Why don't you have a seat?

Jack: I'm thinking the mahi-mahi looks pretty good. How about you? Erica?

Erica: Palmer wanted me to safeguard his company. There is no way that he would want his pride and joy to fall into the hands of the Chandlers. You know that. Ok, I'm gonna put a stop to this.

Caleb: So tell me, why should I even consider selling my company to you?

Erica: You shouldn't, not while I'm running it.

Caleb: Well, unless I'm mistaken, Dorothy -- and I'm not -- I own the company, and I can do whatever I want with it. Now, where were we?

J.R.: Dorothy?

Erica: Palmer may have given you the company, but obviously, he didn't trust you enough to run it, and from what I've just overheard, I can see why.

Scott: We're having a friendly meeting here --

Erica: Yes, this meeting is over now. There's no way that Cortlandt Electronics would ever end up in the hands of Chandlers.

Caleb: So tell me, what would you do with my company if I were to sell it to you?

Erica: Don't ignore me.

Caleb: So you act like this in public, too? You like this all the time, a spoiled brat stomping her feet when she doesn't get her way? Is she always this way?

Erica: Don't you dare try to insult me in public. This is humiliating and totally uncalled for. Stop the game playing, Caleb, and the taunting. This is over. This ends now. We have to do something.

Jack: Unfortunately, the company belongs to Cooney now, and he can do with it whatever he likes.

Erica: Well, what he likes is to do this to spite me.

Caleb: So you're Adam Candler, Junior? Hmm. He sure put his stamp on you, didn't he?

J.R.: Well, I'm very much my own man, a lot like my Uncle Palmer. You know, I can see a resemblance, especially in the way you talk.

Caleb: Well, trust me, you have no idea who I am.

J.R.: I know exactly who you are -- you're my cousin. Dixie Cooney was my mom.

Caleb: So I heard.

J.R.: I brought the Chandlers and the Cooneys together, being part of both. And if you sold us Cortlandt, I'd be one step closer to putting an end to a very hurtful feud. You wouldn't be selling to strangers. You'd be selling to family.

Caleb: You're only part Cooney. Unfortunately, the rest is Candler. Hmm?

Tad: You were supposed to be gone all day. What happened?

Damon: Plans change.

[Cell phone rings]

Tad: Change. Martin. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I got the file. Hang on just a second. I'll be right back.

Liza: So did you enjoy the view?

Damon: I didn't know you were gonna be half naked when I came in.

Liza: Oh, please, don't play innocent with me. You still have that picture of me on your phone. You kissed me on the lips.

Damon: That was an accident.

Liza: Huh. What are you doing? You know what? I know what you're doing.

Damon: What, you think I'm working you?

Liza: Well, it wouldn't be the first time.

Damon: I was just as surprised as you were by that kiss. I -- I didn't know it was gonna happen.

Liza: You know what? I just want to be really clear about something. Whatever this is that's going on in your head, erase it.

Damon: Wait. I need to tell you why I did it.

Marissa: I guess I just get defensive when you attack my marriage.

Krystal: I get it.

Marissa: But I'm sorry that I made that comment about you never being a mother to me when I was growing up. That was below the belt.

Krystal: Well, we all lash out sometimes.

Marissa: Yeah, but I should have directed it at the right person -- Annie.

Krystal: She does know how to get people revved up, doesn't she?

Marissa: Mm-hmm.

Krystal: Are you sure that you and J.R. are ready to share the same bed?

Marissa: Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I want to show J.R. that I have faith in our marriage. Annie's not a threat. Hey, A.J. helped me to see that J.R. loves who I am already. I just have to learn to hold on to that.

Annie: Hello, everybody. I hope you don't mind if I join in on the meeting.

Caleb: Having Candler blood in your veins is nothing to brag about.

J.R.: Uncle Palmer and my father got past their differences because of me.

Caleb: Oh, no, they didn't. They just tolerated each other a bit more toward the end, and what is your stake in this? Do you get stock options as part of the divorce? Is that what it is?

Annie: Well, I'm head of PR for the company, and of course, I'm here to support the family.

Scott: We had our accountants go over a financial overview of Cortlandt to give you a better sense of where the company stands in the marketplace.

Caleb: You never answered my question. Why would I turn the company over to you?

J.R.: Uncle Palmer cared more about the deal than ancient history.

Erica: Excuse us, J.R. I need a moment alone with Caleb, in private.

Caleb: Excuse me for just a moment. See if you can get me another drink. Ahh -- didn't last night mean anything to you? Have you forgotten what happened?

Liza: Get your hands off of me. And I swear, if you accidentally kiss me again, I will rip those lips off your face.

Damon: Kissing you was a mistake.

Liza: Yeah. What is this? What is this? You're saying one thing, and you're doing something else.

Damon: I'm not intentionally messing with you.

Liza: Ok, so what do you call it?

Damon: I went off my meds for a few days, ok? I skipped a bunch of pills. I wasn't thinking. The whole lack of impulse thing -- I was happy, I hugged you, and then I don't know, I just -- I couldn't stop myself.

Liza: You know this all sounds like a convenient excuse.

Damon: It's the truth, all right? Look, I finally find a place where I belong, and after everything Tad has done for me, I don't want to screw him over like that. The days of me playing fast and loose with pills are over. I -- I really don't want Tad to know that I messed up.

Tad: Yeah. No problem. Thanks for keeping me in the loop. Ok, back again. Something happen?

Damon: No. I'm gonna go. Just -- have fun.

Tad: What was that about?

Liza: I don't know.

[Door closes]

Liza: Teenagers. Ah --

Caleb: Jack's pretty upset. I guess you forgot to tell him about last night.

Erica: Yeah, Jack is upset because you made it sound like a lot more than a business meeting.

Caleb: Well, do you always wear a sexy dress and bring a bottle of booze to business meetings?

Erica: I'm not gonna let you ruin my relationship with my fiancé.

Caleb: Now, why would I want to do that?

Erica: I don't know, but if Cortlandt Electronics is such an albatross, and you won't let me have it, then let's just figure out a way to sell it the right way.

Caleb: Hmm.

Erica: I'll clear my schedule. We will work night and day until we come up with something that is to your satisfaction.

Caleb: Just you and me alone going over the books?

Erica: It's the only way to find a suitable buyer.

Caleb: It's the only way?

Erica: Yes, if you want to honor Palmer's memory.

Caleb: You are planning a wedding. You and me working together -- ain't gonna happen.

Erica: Wait a minute. What are you gonna do?

Caleb: Chandlers are a bunch of vultures. I have no intention of getting involved with them, tied up in a fight with them, nor of sharing an office with you, nor of doing one other thing that's gonna keep me in this town for one more minute than I have to be here. And as for you people, prepare a real offer if you want! I have had it with this town and with all the people in it! Drinks are on the house!

Scott: Let me call the attorneys.

J.R.: Wha -- how did that happen?

Annie: Oh, it was you, J.R. You didn't let him rattle you. You set a goal, and you got what you wanted. I'm really happy for you.

Erica: Caleb is about to hand over Cortlandt Electronics to the Chandlers. Palmer would be appalled.

Jack: You know what? I don't give a damn about Cortlandt. But boy, would I like to hear about you and Caleb last night.

Colby: Hey.

Damon: Hi.

Colby: I'm sorry the way I acted before. Huh. There's no way you could be seeing somebody else. I guess when you, uh, backed out of your plan to go to New York with me, I guess it -- it made me a little crazy, I guess.

Damon: It's not about us. And I -- I don't want to fight. It's just -- I have a lot of stuff to figure out, you know? Who I am and who Tad is and the rest of this new family. I need to find my way. You get that, right?

Colby: Yeah, I get that. But the crazy thing is, is I lost my internship. I lost my spot.

Damon: What? They can't do that. The -- the hell with them. No, you'll find something better. There's got to be a bunch of fashion places in New York looking for cheap college labor. Just call your advisor.

Colby: It almost sounds like you want me gone.

Damon: Whoa, it's not that, I'm just -- you got gypped. I'm ticked off. Aren't you?

Colby: Not really. That way I get to spend more time with you. [Hug]

Tad: You see that look in their eye? You see it, Rock? That's what you got to get back. The eye of the tiger, baby.

Liza: We're not gonna watch "Rocky" again, are we?

Tad: No.

Liza: There's six of them?

Tad: Yeah. Isn't it beautiful? It's a present for Damon. You know, kind of a welcome into the family type of deal. He's as crazy about them as I am.

Liza: Yeah, must be genetic.

Tad: Yeah. Want to see me do Hulk Hogan?

Liza: Hmm -- no.

Tad: Can't reach it.

Liza: No, no. I, um -- I -- Tad, honey, there is something that you need to know about Damon.

Tad: There's a whole lot of things I need to know about Damon, and I intend to find out.

Liza: No, I'm talking about -- you've got to keep an eye on him.

Scott: Hey.

Marissa: Hey. How'd the meeting with Caleb go?

Scott: He is this close to selling Cortlandt Electronics.

[Scott and Marissa laugh]

Marissa: Ok, put me down. It's making me dizzy.

Scott: It's good to hear you laugh.

Marissa: Yeah. I haven't really been doing much of that lately.

Scott: You and J.R. getting back on track?

Marissa: Yeah, finally.

Scott: Good.

Marissa: You and Annie seem to be, uh, clicking.

Scott: Uh -- I know it's been rough, having her around. Thanks for not tearing my head off.

Annie: What happened here today was amazing.

J.R.: Yeah, my father has worked his whole life to make this happen.

Annie: No. I don't just mean Cortlandt. I mean you, me, and Scott being able to work together, everything being ok. It's what we said we would do at the beach.

J.R.: Mm-hmm. We can do this.

Annie: Absolutely. I mean, you and me working together and living together, it's -- it's not gonna be a problem.

J.R.: And this connection that we have, it's under control.

Annie: Totally. Put in its place.

J.R.: Good.

Annie: Just stay on your side of the house.

[J.R. and Annie chuckle]

J.R.: That won't be a problem.

Krystal: Hello there. There's nothing really fancy here, but if it's comfort food you're looking for, you're in the right place.

Caleb: You're the other half of Dorothy's rescue team -- Krystal, right?

Krystal: Yeah, I'm surprised you remembered my name. Now, I remember that you are a moonshine man, but if you want one of my burgers, you're gonna need a beer.

Caleb: Whatever's on tap.

Krystal: You got it. So, uh, you're not selling Cortlandt Electronics to the Chandlers, huh?

Caleb: Whew. Boy, it's scary how fast news travels in this town.

Krystal: [Laughs] Well, J.R. is my son-in-law, so you better be careful.

Caleb: Right. Ladies, gentlemen, we're gonna have to close, I'm sorry. There's been a report of a gas leak. You're gonna have to leave right now. Come back in a couple of hours.

Krystal: What?

Caleb: We'll pick up the tab. Lunch is on the house. Thank you. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Krystal: Wait. No. You can't kick out my customers!

Caleb: Thank you very much. Thank you for understanding. You come back in a couple of hours. It'll be ok. Thank you. You, too. Thank you. I am renting your place for just a little bit, ok? I can afford it, as you probably heard.

Krystal: Ok. Huh. What do you want?

Caleb: Well, let's see. Let's start out with a burger, some fries, and some information.

Erica: Look, I tried to get Caleb drunk, so he would sell Cortlandt Electronics to me. That's it. His whole "it's as if last night never happened" routine is just another one of his attempts to rile me. Don't let him get to you.

Jack: Like he got to you.

Erica: Exactly. You are so right. I should just forget about Caleb Cooney and concentrate on the man I love.

Jack: Mm-hmm. Did something happen between you and Caleb up on that mountain?
