Jack: Tell Erica to stay away from you? Now, what the hell is that supposed to mean? Erica has many more important things to do than follow you around.
Caleb: Well, then why does she keep turning up everywhere I go?
Jack: I think that's your imagination running wild. Maybe that's what you'd like to believe. But my fiancée is not in the habit of stalking people.
Caleb: I just got to say that if she were my woman, I'd be worried, too. Ooh!
[Erica sighs as she searches online for information on Caleb]
Erica: You went to Stanford? You must be kidding me.
Jake: Come here often?
Angie: You're not on the schedule today.
Jake: I'm not on the hospital schedule. I'm on your schedule.
Angie: I'm fine, Jake. Go home.
Jake: Well, now, see, I promised to be your eyes. So you're stuck with me.
Angie: My vision is great.
Jake: That's good. That means the experimental drugs are working, right?
Angie: You know, I haven't had a single episode all day.
Jake: Look at it this way. I'm just gonna keep you company.
Angie: You know what? I don't have rounds, no consults, no patients at all. Now, the paperwork might bury me alive, but I certainly think I can handle it on my own.
Jake: Oh, that's good. But the good news is you don't have to because I'm here. And I'm all yours. Come on.
Angie: You know what? I don't know whether to be grateful or annoyed.
Jake: You should just be safe. We just want you to be safe.
Angie: Oh, just stop.
Jesse: Is this a secret club or can anybody join?
Greenlee: I can sit by myself.
Ryan: Yes, but can you stay there?
Greenlee: Of course.
Ryan: Maybe we can get you a stool with a seat belt in it.
Greenlee: Ha ha ha! I tripped, all right? Fine. You can go now.
Ryan: Uh, I don't think so.
Greenlee: If you won't leave, I will. You have three seconds to let go of my arm, or I'll start screaming until the cops come. 1 -- 2 --
Ryan: You are just a few drinks beyond driving yourself anywhere.
Greenlee: We are so done. So over. You don't even like me, and you're still trying to control me.
Ryan: No, I'm trying to keep you from making a really stupid mistake.
Greenlee: It's too late for that. So why don't you just go away and let me have my keys?
Ryan: You can be mad at me, you can bitch me out, whatever you want. But the smart thing for you to do is let me drive you back to the Yacht Club.
Ryan: Ok. I'm gonna make a quick phone call, and then we're out of here.
Madison: Cereal for dinner?
Frankie: Yes, ma'am. Bachelor life. Well, at least while Randi is in Italy being beautiful.
Madison: I thought Ryan would be here by now. We were going to grab a bite before we took off.
Frankie: Um, I'm sure he'll be here any minute. But in the meantime if you're hungry, I can fix you a bowl of cereal. You know, if Hayward has his way, I'll be out of a job and eating these for the rest of my life?
Madison: I am sorry that David's been making your life so miserable.
Frankie: Well, if Hayward decides to swing the ax, I'll deal. Until then, I'm gonna stay focused, keep my head down, and pretty much do the best I can do. [Slurps noisily]
Frankie: Ahh. Randi hates that.
Madison: Randi probably misses that and you already.
Frankie: Well, at least I clean up after myself.
Madison: Oh, no, you don't. No, no, no. As long as I'm staying here, you and Randi don't touch a dish. Let me.
[Cell phone rings]
Frankie: Ooh, see, I think that may be a little more important than K.P.
Ryan: Hey, I, uh, just wanted to let you know I'm gonna be a little bit late.
Madison: Is something wrong?
Ryan: Um, no. No. I just have an errand to run, and I will be there as soon as I can.
Madison: I'll be here.
Greenlee: If you have such a hot date, why are your hands all over me? [Chuckles]
Jack: You and Erica are bound together by the terms of Palmer's will. But that's your only connection.
Caleb: I saved her life.
Jack: That's true. You did, and we are both eternally grateful. But now here she is safe and sound back in her own world.
Caleb: And she can have it. Just, please, keep her out of mine.
Jack: As soon as we can equitably resolve all the issues around Cortlandt Electronics, your relationship with Erica will be over.
Caleb: Then make it happen already.
Jack: I'll make some calls. Have a nice night, Mr. Cooney.
Caleb: Adios, counselor.
Jesse: Seriously, folks, it still feels like I need clearance for this conversation.
Jake: Now, that's just silly. You caught us in the middle of one of our redecorating covert plans.
Jesse: I'm still processing your last effort, but, hey, if it makes my wife happy, knock yourselves out.
Angie: Now, how could I not be happy when I have a husband like you?
Jesse: Ah, you mean an unemployed husband?
Jake: Yeah, I'm sorry to hear about that.
Jesse: Yeah, just more misery raining down from the hell that is Hayward, right? Speaking of hell.
David: Dr. Hubbard, Dr. Martin, it's nice to see you both have so much free time to gossip. I guess I'm gonna have to reevaluate the current schedule. You wanted to see me?
Angie: You'll excuse us.
Angie: I got your memo about the next proposed staff cuts. And I would like to know why my son is at the top of the list.
Jesse: Angela's not really been herself lately, and I don't know whether it's the disappointment of not being pregnant, the job here, or something else. But I do know that Hayward is not helping. So until I can get him behind bars for crashing Erica's plane, it'd mean a lot to me if you could sort of be my eyes here.
Jake: Yeah. Hey, I've already got you covered, all right?
Angie: Frankie has been an exemplary doctor. And the only reason that you're moving him to the top of your downsizing list is because he's a Hubbard.
David: Ok. I'll tell you what, why don't you shelve the paranoia for a minute, ok, and take a look at the budget? If you can find a way to cut 200,000, I'll happily remove the staff cuts from the table --
Angie: Yes. I can think of several areas where we can be more cost effective.
David: Wonderful! Let's hear them. Ok, Doctor, that was your invitation to wow me, so I'm all ears.
Angie: If I can keep this, I will just refer to my notes and send you a memo.
David: Do you have an idea or don't you, or is this just your way to prolong the inevitable? Because I don't have time to be jerked around.
Angie: David, look, there are legitimate avenues that we have not explored --
David: Ok, great. That's fine. Please show them to me. Point to one area that can be trimmed.
Jake: Jesse, I'll be right back.
David: So unless the figures have shown you otherwise, there's no fat left to cut. But is that what this is really about, Angie? You know I'm right, and you hate to admit it?
Jake: Hey, what are you guys doing? Fun with numbers.
David: This has nothing to do with you.
Jake: No? You're swinging your cleaver at the budget, right? So anybody who's on your hit list, they better duck.
David: This is an administrative matter.
Jake: Well, it involves human beings, right? I'm a human being. People living, breathing. Weren't you talking about the, um -- the rotation schedule and that you would revisit the budget?
Angie: Yeah --
Jake: And that's a way of trimming down the overtime was what I think you were talking about.
Angie: Yeah, there it is. It's exactly what I was looking for. Listen, if I rework the rotations and reduce the hours of the entire staff, I can save a bundle on overtime. And when you factor in the health and pension costs that we'd save, I mean, it'll bring you close to the figures that you're looking for.
David: If you feel you can structure a new schedule, send it my way. I'll take a look at it.
Jake: Is there a problem?
David: You tell me. You're usually so much more on the ball, Angie.
Greenlee: I'm fine. Your services are no longer needed. Go. Leave. Scoot.
Greenlee: Don't push it.
Ryan: May I?
Greenlee: Why are you still here?
Ryan: Because I want to make sure you don't slip in the hallway.
Greenlee: The card's probably damaged or demagnetized or something. You know, all this stupid technology. I mean, what's the use if it doesn't even work? You did that just to tick me off. David, are you here? Ha! Oh! Figures, he went out.
Greenlee: [Sighs] Again, still here?
Ryan: I guess if you're good, I'll, um, I'll leave.
Greenlee: Good. Yeah. I'm great. Why not? Hubby's probably out finding more ways to make it look like he's my savior.
Erica: You're a fraud. That college ring I found up in your cabin. You lied. It's yours. Stanford Law, magna cum laude. Youngest partner ever in the history of L.A.'s top law firm. Brilliant young attorney, brilliant future. Big clients. You're not a mountain man. You're just hiding out in that flannel shirt.
Angie: All right. You know what? I am going to draw up a proposal. And I will get it to you e-mailed by the end of the day. Now, is that on the ball enough for you?
David: All right. Then get to it. Coffee break's over, folks.
Angie: Thank you.
Jake: Right here.
Angie: Thank you, thank you. Thank you.
Jake: That was close, very close.
Angie: It was too close. And all David needs is one sign of weakness from me, and then you and Frankie and every patient who sets foot in this hospital will suffer.
David: You really need to find better things to do with all that free time you now have rather than hanging around your wife, bothering her at her place of work.
Jesse: Oh, trust me. There's plenty to do. And, actually, I'm enjoying this free time. It gives me a lot more time to focus on you.
David: Hmm. Yeah. I'm a fascinating subject, aren't I?
Jesse: Fascinating? Huh. The planes falling from the sky, sabotage, payoffs, the attempted murder of Erica Kane. That's some juicy stuff. And you're right up in the middle of it, and I'm gonna prove it.
David: You know, I suggest you find a more productive hobby. You know, something like model planes, Pilates, beekeeping. Something that you can show for your efforts.
Jesse: Well, there will be plenty to show by the time this investigation is over.
David: No, no. You're just gonna be disappointed in the end, because there's nothing to find. Enjoy your suspension.
Madison: Maybe Ryan just ran into Greenlee, and that's why I heard her.
Frankie: Yeah, that's it.
Madison: And I'm sure she didn't mean that his hands were all over her.
Frankie: Hmm. Probably not.
Madison: Ok, I'm looking for a little bit more enthusiasm here.
Frankie: Have you even talked to Ryan recently about where things stand with Greenlee?
Madison: He swears she's in the past.
Frankie: Well, there you go.
Madison: Ok, enough playing Switzerland. Do you think something's going on with them? Should I be worried?
Frankie: Look, Ryan took you to Amanda and Jake's wedding. What happened? Greenlee crisis. He left you. And just the other day, the big date, Ryan asks for a rain check? Why? Greenlee crisis.
Madison: But he showed up for our date in the end. So you do think there's something going on. Should I cancel the trip, say something to Ryan?
Frankie: Look, if you need a second opinion about your gallbladder, I'm your man. But advice about these kind of things, you need to stop turning to me.
Madison: Ok. How about a hypothetical, then, hmm?
Frankie: How about a hypodermic needle in my right eye.
Madison: Listen, you have this friend and your friend likes this guy. And the more time she spends with him, the more she likes him. And she's pretty sure that he likes her, too. I mean, he put her on his speed-dial. And he's including her in time with his daughter, who by the way your friend is also starting to care more and more about.
Frankie: Should I be taking notes on this?
Madison: Listen, now there's this trip to New York City. It's out of town. It's overnight. It could be a big turning point in their relationship. So say you know all of that, but you also know that this guy might possibly still have feelings for his ex. Would you have any advice for your friend, then?
Frankie: You know, I would tell my friend, "Be careful because sooner or later, it's gonna be too late for you to turn back before you get hurt." But, as you said, we're talking hypothetical, right?
Ryan: Get some aspirin, ok? You're gonna need them. Hey -- you shouldn't have to put up with the pain that David dishes out.
Greenlee: Forget I said anything. I just want to sleep. Go away. Sometimes in the morning before I open my eyes, I forget what's happened this past year. I expect to open them and see you next to me. Does that ever happen to you?
Ryan: Just sleep it off.
David: What the hell are you doing in my room?
Caleb: So you've come up with a resume about a fancy university and a 6-figure job. And now you think you know me.
Erica: You were a star in the courtroom.
Caleb: And according to Erica Kane, that makes me more acceptable in the world?
Erica: You walked away from quite a lot.
Caleb: Did I?
Erica: Yes, you did. You achieved what most people can just dream of. Why did you do that, Caleb? Why did you walk away from so much? Why did you leave so much behind?
Caleb: You know what? Your boyfriend was just here. Mm-hmm, and he just warned me not to see you again. So I think maybe you should just go before he comes back here and starts doing his alpha wolf thing again.
Erica: Caleb, when we were up there on that mountain, you asked me some things about my life, and I answered them. And now I'd like to know some things about yours. I'd like to know the truth about your life.
Caleb: Why do you want to know?
Erica: Well, we went through quite a lot together up on that mountain after the plane crash. And now -- is this Dog?
Erica: And now because of Palmer's will, it seems like you and I are going to go through quite a lot together down the road. So, yes, I would like to know, was it a scandal?
Caleb: I think you should leave.
Erica: Was it the pressure?
Caleb: It's none of your damn business.
Erica: I think it was a lover. The woman whose locket I found in the pocket of your shirt had obviously meant a great deal to you. And you told me a story one night up on that mountain about a beautiful, stubborn woman who was ripped away. But I don't think that was just a story, Caleb. I think she was real.
Caleb: She was my wife! And Adam Chandler stole her away from me, all right?
Erica: Adam Chandler stole the woman you loved?
Caleb: Yup. Her name was Sonya. We were going to get married. I made partner. I took on this client from out of town in spite of the fact that Uncle Pete warned me about him.
Erica: And Adam seduced Sonya?
Caleb: While I was out earning him another couple of million bucks --
Erica: Oh, Adam.
Caleb: And he bailed on me, left me holding the bag. The firm fired me. My reputation was shot.
Erica: And the woman you loved was gone. No wonder you hate Adam Chandler so much.
Caleb: And I lost control. I tried to burn down his house.
Erica: My God, but you didn't, did you?
Caleb: I wish I had, but I didn't.
Erica: I know what you did. You ran. You shut yourself off from Sonya and from the world. Let me ask you something. Did you ever think of trying to find Sonya?
Caleb: Sonya's dead.
Erica: I see.
Caleb: When I was growing up in Pigeon Hollow, I used to look up at my mountain. You know my mountain. And I thought, you know, someday Sonya and I -- [Taps nervously]
Erica: I'm so sorry.
Caleb: Well -- when she was gone -- I'm sorry. I just knew that's where I needed to be.
Erica: I understand. Caleb, Caleb, let me just say we're not meant to be alone. There's more to life now. There can be more to life than a bottle of Jim. You need to be with people. You need to be able to relax into someone's arms, to know laughter and light and love. Can I help you, please? Let me help you. Let me help lead you out.
Caleb: Now, listen, all things considered, my life's pretty good. I'm sorry about that.
[Cell phone rings]
Caleb: It must be your boyfriend. You'd better get it.
Jake: Are you good?
Angie: Yeah. It's coming back.
Jake: Hey! Just in time. Well, I'm around if you need me, so I'll send you those, uh, swatches.
Jesse: What did Hayward say to you?
Angie: Ah, nothing.
Jesse: Baby, you're upset. He must have said something. What, did he threaten to fire Frankie?
Angie: You know what? Actually, I think I might be able to hold that off.
Jesse: I don't know. You just -- you look troubled.
Angie: It's just another long day.
Jesse: You know, when I first fell in love with you, you had this amazing sparkle in your eyes. Even coming back after all those 20 years, that sparkle was still there strong as ever. Now with all this Hayward stuff, it's hard to find, even when you say you're happy, baby.
Angie: I know. I know, baby.
Jesse: You know what? It's gonna be my number-one priority to bring that sparkle back.
David: What were you doing in my room?
Ryan: Greenlee's inside. Why don't you ask her?
Ryan: Oh, great. So you've been filling her head with more lies about me?
Ryan: Everything I've told Greenlee about you is true. Now, I'm late for something, so I got to get going. You know, you really should treat your wife just a little bit better.
David: I just ran into Ryan outside. Why was he here? What happened?
Greenlee: What do you think happened?
Frankie: You know, I hate to say it, but --
Madison: Don't even offer me another pity pizza.
[Knock on door]
Madison: See? There he is.
Frankie: Yeah. And I'll get it. Just --
Ryan: Hey. Sorry I'm late.
Madison: Everything's ok?
Ryan: Yes. Good. Good to go.
Madison: Ok. Well, I'll get my bags, then.
Ryan: Great. How's things?
Ryan: Good. Cool about Randi, huh, modeling in Italy. Hitting the big-time.
Frankie: Yeah, it is.
Ryan: Everything all right?
Frankie: Don't hurt her, Ryan.
Madison: Clothes, shoes, et cetera.
Ryan: "Et cetera." Huh. I'm not even gonna ask.
Madison: Thank you. Huh.
Ryan: Hey, how about we get some dinner before we go?
Ryan: Yeah? Great. Got this. Ok.
Madison: Thank you.
David: You've been drinking.
Greenlee: Just one. Or maybe three. No, two. Definitely two. Ha ha. You decided I was drinking with Ryan. Is that it? Took me out, got me drunk, hoped to get lucky?
David: No. No. Of course not. Look, I was just worried, ok? I've been calling. I've been leaving messages. You said you had to pick something up.
Greenlee: A client called. I met her for a drink.
David: Or two.
Greenlee: I'm a lightweight. You know that. Oh, wait. You don't.
David: And then --
Greenlee: I ran into Ryan. Well, I didn't actually run into him. I fell off my stool, and he caught me. So --
David: You should have called me.
Greenlee: Ryan took care of it.
David: Well, having someone drop you home, that was a smart move.
Greenlee: Even if that someone was Ryan?
David: I'm glad you made it home safely.
Greenlee: You don't believe me.
David: Of course, I do.
Greenlee: Huh. It's so depressing when the trust goes out of a relationship, isn't it?
Jack: Well, I'm back here at Fusion. Where did you go?
Erica: I had some things to take care of.
Jack: Where are you now?
Erica: I'm with Caleb.
Jack: Did he ambush you again?
Erica: We're at Wildwind. We're discussing Cortlandt Electronics business.
Jack: Cooney. Put Erica back on.
Caleb: Cortlandt Electronics is officially for sale. If you know anybody who's interested, get them on the phone.
Jack: Well, I'm certainly glad to hear that.
Caleb: Two conditions.
Jack: Of course, there are. What would they be?
Caleb: Chandlers need not apply. And anybody's who's interested, get them to close the deal right away. You think you can handle that?
Jack: Yeah, I think so. Listen, I'll put together some meetings for you.
Caleb: No. No meetings. I'm leaving town tonight. You take a finder's fee, unload the damn company, and send me a check.
Jack: Look, I really think it would be to your advantage if --
[Caleb hangs up]
Erica: What just happened?
Caleb: I don't belong here.
Ryan: This is why it's so great having a corporate jet. We don't have to race to the airport. No boarding passes, no running --
Madison: I could get used to it. I mean, it's great. And this is so much better than those little bottles on the plane.
Ryan: Mm-hmm. Hey, look, I'm sorry again that I was late.
Madison: It's all right.
Ryan: It didn't really seem that all right with Frankie earlier. He seemed a little ticked at me. Any idea why?
Madison: Oh, he's missing Randi and having a hard time at work.
Madison: Of course.
Ryan: Someday that guy's gonna get what's coming to him for messing with so many people's lives. But we are gonna take New York by storm, and that's all that matters right now.
Madison: I'm so excited. I think it could really be the beginning of something great. You know, with all the networking I'll be doing, it could open up a whole new future business-wise.
Ryan: To the future.
Madison: So, um, when you called earlier, you said you had an errand to run.
Ryan: Yeah, I did.
Madison: Was it Greenlee? You know what? No, don't. Don't answer that. You don't owe me any explanations.
Ryan: Yes, I was with Greenlee. I was. I ran into her at Krystal's. She had too much to drink, way too much to drink. She was in a little bit of trouble. So I drove her home so she could be with her husband, where she belongs.
Madison: I didn't assume the worst. You know, it just sort of sounded over the phone --
Ryan: I get exactly how it sounded. And I'm sorry. I should have just come out and told you what happened. I should have just been forward with all of it, you know? But please know that if there's anything that you want to ask me, you can just ask -- anytime -- and I will be completely truthful.
Madison: Thank you.
Ryan: Ok. Now I got a bit of a serious question for you. Are you ready to take on New York? Come on.
Greenlee: It's obvious you don't believe me.
David: I trust you completely.
Greenlee: But Ryan? Not so much.
David: I just wanted to make sure he wasn't upsetting you. You are my wife, right, and part of my job description is to make sure you're happy. Are you happy?
Greenlee: I just want to sleep and have it be tomorrow.
David: I'm not gonna let you slip away. I won't let that happen.
Angie: Hello, my handsome son.
Frankie: Hey, what's all this, huh?
Jesse: All this is your family stepping up. Since your wife is out of town, we figured you could use the company.
Frankie: Ok, well, you guys are just in time because I got Italian, Mexican; we got burgers or pizza.
Angie: Well, homemade comfort food is what you're getting.
Frankie: Ah, ma, you don't have to cook.
Angie: Yes, I do because we're family, and that's what families do. And nothing makes me happier than making meals for my menses.
Jesse: Mm! You know you can't talk her out of it.
Frankie: There you have it. I guess I'm not even gonna try.
Jesse: Once she gets her head on something, you know that's it.
Frankie: I hope it's good because I'm hungry.
Jesse: Me, too.
Angie: Ok, so how is mashed potatoes, meat loaf, and broccoli?
Frankie: Ooh, sounds good to me.
Jesse: Everything but the broccoli part.
Frankie: Ooh, I remember when you used to slip your broccoli to the dog.
Jesse: We never had a dog.
Frankie: Yeah, on broccoli night, we did. You would invite the neighbor's dog over.
Jesse: I -- did -- not.
Frankie: You better shame the devil. Every time Mom made broccoli or Brussels sprouts, you had that dog over here.
Jesse: Dogs don't even like Brussels sprouts, man. Oh --
Frankie: What happened?
Jesse: You ok over here?
Angie: Uh, yeah. Just a bit clumsy. I guess there's not gonna be any ketchup for the meat loaf.
Jesse: It's a damn shame you didn't knock the broccoli on the floor.
Frankie: Look, here's an extra towel.
Jesse: Thank you, son.
Jack: All right, listen to me. I'm at Fusion right now. What I want you to do before you close the office down, I want you to go ahead and e-mail to me that folder on the notes I had for the Paris honeymoon, all right? And then go home. You've done enough, all right? Send it to me now. Good night.
Erica: So that's it? You're just gonna do what you did back in L.A. all those years ago? You're going to run?
Caleb: Maybe I just know when it's time to go.
Erica: No. It doesn't have to be like that.
Caleb: Yes, it does. I've got no reason to be here.
Erica: Well, I don't even know why I'm here arguing with you about this. Probably because I love Palmer so much. And maybe Palmer thought that you had the same kind of fight in you that he had in him. Palmer wanted you to have the company. He certainly wouldn't want you to run away like this.
Caleb: Who are you kidding? You're the one who doesn't want me to leave.
