Greenlee: Ryan, are you sure there even is a key?
Ryan: Kendall saw Liza give it to him. We know David moved the bogus evidence from the safe. He needed an ally, someone that he could trust.
Greenlee: So Liza's holding it for him?
Ryan: Whatever we're looking for is in her office. I would bet the house on it.
Greenlee: I'm gonna kill her.
Ryan: Ok, ok, take it easy. We got plenty of time to deal with her, ok? But for now --
Greenlee: I know. I know -- find the key. Oh --
Greenlee: This drawer -- it's, like, sticking on something.
Ryan: Ok, well, pull harder. Pull it out.
Greenlee: I'm trying. I'm trying. Ugh! Oh, my God, Ryan, I found it. I found the key.
Jesse: Mayor, listen. My detectives are doing their job. You didn't need to call me down here.
Iris: Yes, I did. I have a bloodied assistant down the hall. I want a message sent that these animals can't go around carjacking people in Pine Valley, especially when it's the mayor's assistant.
Jesse: We're on it, ok? And listen. One more thing -- I really appreciate getting my badge back.
Iris: You want to keep it? You stay away from David Hayward. We clear on that?
Iris: I hope so.
Natalia: Hey, Chief.
Jesse: Thank you.
Natalia: But that part about Hayward?
Jesse: Yeah, yeah. You know I ain't gonna let that go: Like a dog with a bone!
Natalia: Ha ha ha! Just asking.
Jesse: One step at a time. And this -- bam -- is the first one.
Natalia: Looks good on you.
Jesse: I know.
Natalia: I'm sure Angie will be happy to see that, too.
Jesse: Yeah -- yeah. Yeah.
Natalia: Oh, no. No, I meant --
Jesse: No, no, no, no, it's ok. She'll see it. She'll know.
Caleb: What do we do?
Angie: Listen, lay her down here in front of me. Rest her head on my lap. All right, she's breathing. Good pulse. Listen, Caleb, I want you to call 911. Use my name, find out their ETA.
Caleb: Hello? Hello? Yes, I'm calling from Wildwind. Dr. Hubbard called in a fire. We've got a child here who's unconscious from smoke inhalation. How long before you get here? What do you mean, 10 minutes?! Come on! We've got a -- just hurry up!
Angie: Caleb, I want you to check the closets and the cabinets. Maybe David left a medical kit around here somewhere. Miranda? I need you to hang in there for me, ok? You're a strong little girl, and I need you to hold on. Hold on, and hang in there for me. All right, I'm right here, sweetheart. I'm not going anywhere. I'm not going anywhere, baby. All right, that's it, sweetheart. Keep breathing. Keep breathing. Now, Miranda, I know you can hear me, and what I need for you is to wake up. I need you to open those big, beautiful, dark eyes. I know that you can. Come on, sweetie. I know that you can do it. Wake up. Wake up, Miranda.
Caleb: I found them. I found a bag, and I found oxygen.
Angie: I need you to check and see if there's a stethoscope in there. If it is, hand it to me.
Caleb: Here you go.
Angie: All right, the oxygen tank should have an oxygen mask attached to it. I need you to take the mask, open the valve, and place it over her nose and mouth. She should start coughing.
Caleb: Ok. All right. Got it.
Angie: All right. All right, breathe it in.
Angie: All right -- all right! Good girl! Good girl! All right, all right, keep breathing. Keep breathing, sweetheart.
Caleb: Where are those damn paramedics?
Angie: All right, breathe. Breathe, Miranda.
Caleb: Oh, it's about time.
Angie: All right. Oh, thank God.
Angie: Thank God. That's it, sweetheart, cough. Cough it out. All right. Thank you, God. Thank you.
Jesse: Wow. I never realized how much this meant to me until they took it away.
Natalia: Yeah, well, welcome back. We missed you.
Jesse: Thank you.
Natalia: I'm sorry. One second. Ohh. Fowler. Yeah -- wait. When did the call come in? Where is she? Ok. Ok. Thanks.
Jesse: What is it?
Natalia: A 911 call came in. It's Angie. There's been a fire at Wildwind.
Jesse: What? How bad?
Natalia: She didn't say. But do you want me to go?
Jesse: No, no, no. You get back to the station. You check on this carjacking. I'll handle this.
David: What's going on here?
Greenlee: I did all of this.
David: Why would you do this?
Greenlee: It's kind of embarrassing.
David: It's ok. Tell me.
Greenlee: Well, I was up late last night working, and so I decided to take a nap. I closed my eyes and -- oh, God, David, it was so awful.
David: What was?
Greenlee: This dream I had. It was so real. It was the night of the accident, and I was back on the road, losing control. I hit the guardrail and I was flying through the air and I was falling, forever, only this time it was in slow motion. Then the pain -- oh, my God, David, I don't know if I told you, but I could hear every bone breaking in my body. I could feel the life draining out of me. I was dying, only this time you weren't there. You weren't there to save me.
David: But I was there to save you, Greenlee. I took care of you. And now here you are, safe with me.
Greenlee: I am safe, aren't I? I want to hate you for everything you're doing to keep me with you, but I can't, David. I can't hate you. Not after what you did for me that night, what you did for me after.
David: That's all very gratifying to hear. But it still doesn't explain what you were looking for in this room.
Ryan: Come on, Greenlee, call me back. Just call me back. Just pick up the phone and call me back. Ring!
Ryan: Hello? What? A subscription? No, no, no. No, thank you. God! Kendall. Kendall. Kendall, come on, now. Kendall, just pick it up. Hey, it's Ryan. Hi. Look, I'm really worried about Greenlee right now. I think she could be in some serious trouble, ok? So when you get the message, could you just go over there and, um, you know what? Forget it. I'm gonna take care of this myself.
Madison: Hey. What's your hurry?
Ryan: Hey. I was just kind of running out.
Madison: Yeah, like you were late to a fire. Is it not a good time? I promise it won't take long. It's for tomorrow night.
Ryan: Oh, look. You got -- wait. Tomorrow night?
Madison: The big party? You know, the black tie, the slinky dress? Well, the dress probably would be for me, and the tie -- Ryan?
Madison: It's really not a good time, huh?
Ryan: Oh, you got me a gift? This is so sweet. Look, I didn't even -- you know, I didn't --
Madison: Come on.
Ryan: Ok. This is -- oh, man. The way you did this, this is -- I love them!
Madison: Cufflinks. Special cufflinks. See?
Ryan: Oh, it's got a dice with the three showing, and this one's got --
Madison: And a four. So, see, you roll a winner.
Ryan: I love them. I love them. Thank you. I'm gonna thank you properly later. Ok? But now --
Madison: You got to go?
Ryan: Kind of, yeah. I got to go. It's a bit of an emergency.
Madison: I'm assuming that means Greenlee? Just be careful.
Ryan: I will.
Madison: I wouldn't want anything to happen to you, especially after I invested all that money in those cufflinks.
Ryan: Ok. Ok. I'm gonna make this up to you, ok? I'm gonna make it up to you.
Madison: I'm not keeping score --
Greenlee: When I woke up and I -- I realized you weren't here, I was in a panic. And I looked down at my hand and my ring wasn't there, and I remember taking it off, but I don't remember where I put it. I needed something to hold onto, you know, something real. Then I just went kind of crazy and started looking for it. And I know that sounds ridiculous, but that's how it happened.
David: Ok. Don't move from there.
David: Just stay right there. I want to show you something.
David: You took it off last night when you were about to shower and you put it in the drawer.
David: I want you to know, Greenlee, that I'm still there to catch you. I will always keep you safe. You do know that, don't you?
Greenlee: If there wasn't a part of me that knew that, I wouldn't have been so scared.
David: You know, maybe you shouldn't take that off. You don't want to lose it.
Greenlee: I won't. I think I'm gonna take a walk and get some air.
David: You want some company?
Greenlee: No. No, that's ok. I won't be long.
David: All right. Call me if you need me.
Angie: Oh, Jesse!
Jesse: Thank God. Are you ok?
Angie: Yes. Caleb went with Miranda to the hospital. She inhaled a fair amount of smoke.
Jesse: Is she gonna be ok?
Angie: Yeah, I think so. Frankie's on duty. He'll take good care of her. Jesse, I was so scared. If Caleb wasn't here --
Jesse: Baby, don't do that.
Angie: No, he's the one who ran upstairs, carried her down. I could've never done that!
Jesse: You would've figured something out.
Angie: How? Jesse, no. I have got to stop kidding myself. Now, these episodes of me losing my sight are becoming more and more frequent, and one day it's going to be permanent.
Jesse: But until that day --
Angie: No, no, that is it! No more. Now lives are at stake, and I am the one who's putting them there. Jesse, I cannot be a doctor anymore. I can't.
Caleb: I need a doctor here! I need a doctor! Are you a doctor?
Frankie: Yeah. I'm Dr. Hubbard.
Caleb: Hubbard? I just left a Dr. Hubbard. Are you related to her?
Frankie: That's my mother.
Caleb: Is she gonna be ok?
Frankie: Blood pressure?
Caleb: Are you listening to me? Is she gonna be ok?
Frankie: The whole hospital is listening to you, ok? We got this covered, so let's roll her in here. Whoa. Sorry.
Caleb: What? I got to be sure she's ok.
Frankie: I know, but you got to wait out here and let me do my job.
Ryan: Hey! You scared me half to death.
Greenlee: I'm sorry.
Ryan: What the hell happened?
Greenlee: David walked in right after I found the key. I thought it would look a little suspicious if I was talking to you.
Ryan: Ok. So what happened?
Greenlee: I was brilliant, as usual.
Ryan: If you say so yourself.
Greenlee: I thought that David caught me. I thought he was gonna drug me or strangle me or stick me in a dungeon somewhere.
Ryan: But you were brilliant, so that didn't happen, right?
Greenlee: The sad part is David actually thinks that he's doing this out of love. "For us," he keeps on saying.
Ryan: Hey, don't feel too sorry for him.
Greenlee: Trust me, I'm not.
Ryan: So where is he now?
Greenlee: At home.
Ryan: He just let you walk out here? How do you know he didn't follow you?
Greenlee: Trust me, Ryan, he bought the whole story. And I got this.
Ryan: Yes. This is gonna be the key to your freedom.
Jesse: So the patient survives and the doctor quits? What -- Angela, I know you must've been scared, but you're looking at this whole thing the wrong way.
Angie: You weren't here.
Jesse: I know I wasn't here, but from what you told me, you did everything right.
Angie: Jesse, you have always been in my corner, and I love you for that. But this is --
Jesse: Hey, hey. This is not about me being your biggest fan. This is about you doing what you had to do. Come on, you had a crisis in this house, for God's sake. You had a fire! A sick little girl? On top of that, you couldn't see? Come on, baby, you didn't panic. You took care of business. You took care of Miranda. You got the paramedics here. Now, to me, that says that's a good doctor doing everything she can to save her patient. Now, you throw in the towel, and where's that good doctor gonna be when the next patient needs to be saved?
Caleb: Hey. Hey.
Bianca: Hey, where's Miranda? How is she?
Caleb: They're working on her.
Bianca: Working on her? What do you mean, working on her?
Caleb: They haven't told me anything yet, but she was breathing ok in the ambulance.
Bianca: Ambulance? Oh, my God! Just tell me, where do they have her?
Caleb: She's in a cubicle over there. But they're not gonna let you in. I already tried.
Ryan: Ok, the first thing I got to do is figure out the best way into Liza's office and see which one this fits.
Greenlee: You really think this could be it?
Ryan: Yeah. I mean, David would've have gone to all the trouble to hide this if it wasn't important. So, yeah, we're gonna get the evidence, or the so-called evidence, and we're gonna use whatever we find to bury him.
Greenlee: I just want him out of my life. And I know you'll be happy when this goes away, too.
Ryan: Don't worry about me.
Greenlee: That's all I do, Ryan. Helping me has become a full-time job for you.
Ryan: Well, maybe I'm not only doing it for you.
Greenlee: What do you mean?
Ryan: Well, I think a lot about that night, the night of the accident. I mean, I didn't exactly ride to your rescue that night, did I?
Greenlee: You can't blame yourself.
Ryan: Well, it's more like regret. I mean, everything changed that night, everything, for me and for you.
Greenlee: The old "what could've been"?
Ryan: Yeah. You think about that?
Greenlee: Only a hundred times a day.
Ryan: Well, I was pretty lost. And I'm not making excuses for the mistakes that I made, but I really thought you were gone.
Greenlee: I thought you had forgotten about me -- kind of a blow to a girl's self-esteem.
Ryan: I could never forget about you, Greenlee.
Greenlee: Then I married David to hurt you.
Ryan: Well, that part worked.
Greenlee: It kind of backfired on me, though.
Ryan: Whatever happened that night, whatever -- it can't be undone, but maybe now we can set things straight. We can really get you away from him, and if we do that, it'll help us both move on, which is why I am as invested in this as you are.
Greenlee: You know, whatever happens, you'll always have a special place in my heart. I want you to be happy, Ryan. I really do.
[David comes across Greenlee and Ryan getting close on a park bench and sadly drops a bouquet of flowers]
Greenlee: So what happens now?
Ryan: Now I got to figure out the best way to break into Liza's office. But remember, you got to keep --
Greenlee: I know. I know -- pretending with David.
Ryan: And be careful, ok, because he's not easy to con. He's gonna be watching you. Every move, he'll be watching --
Greenlee: I told you, Ryan, I'm an award-winner. Meryl Streep couldn't con David better than I can.
Ryan: Yes, you know, I almost forgot that.
Greenlee: I do accents, musicals -- whatever. You name it.
Ryan: Is that right?
Ryan: Accents? Could I hear one? Because I didn't know.
Greenlee: What do you want to hear?
Ryan: How about German?
[Still watching from behind a bush as Ryan and Greenlee laugh together, David stomps all over the flowers on the ground]
Jesse: You kept her breathing. And if she had stopped --
Angie: Thank God she didn't.
Jesse: But if she had, you'd have been able to perform CPR, right?
Angie: Yes, I would have.
Jesse: Well, to me, that says you're still a doctor. No matter what happens to your eyes, baby, that'll never change.
Angie: You have always been a smooth talker, Jesse Hubbard.
Jesse: Ain't no smooth talking going on here.
Angie: I love you so much.
Angie: Oh, my -- well, I know what that means.
Jesse: Yep: Just got reinstated.
Angie: Oh, baby, I'm so happy for you.
Jesse: So listen. If I can get my job back, I'm sure we can figure out a way to keep yours.
Frankie: She may have a sore throat for a day or two, maybe some coughing.
Bianca: But no permanent damage?
Frankie: Your roommate got her downstairs and out of the smoke before anything really seriously could happen.
Miranda: Caleb saved me.
Bianca: She's ok. Miranda's gonna be just fine.
Caleb: Thank you, Doc. I'm sorry about before.
Frankie: Don't worry about it. You did a great job getting her out of there. Another minute of her inhaling that smoke and, well --
Caleb: She's gonna be ok?
Caleb: Thanks again.
Bianca: Thank you, Caleb.
Caleb: All I did was carry her down the stairs. Dr. Hubbard and his mom did the hard part.
Bianca: I'm just -- I'm glad you were there to save her. What is it?
Caleb: You should go back in there with her.
Bianca: Miranda is fine. You helped save her life. It's over.
Caleb: I walked into that room, and when I saw Sonia -- I mean Miranda lying there --
Bianca: You said "Sonia." Who is Sonia?
Ryan: So the first thing I'm gonna do is make a copy of this key, so you can put the original back in its place in the drawer.
Greenlee: So you're gonna show up there?
Ryan: This party couldn't be happening at a better time. I'll show up there, make sure Liza and David see me, then I'm gonna sneak out, get the evidence from Liza's office. I'm gonna bring it back to the party, and then you can confront him in front of everybody. Let him know that you're finally free of him, and he'll be powerless to stop you.
Greenlee: Right there in the middle of the party? I like that, like a celebration of my freedom.
Ryan: Like your own personal Fourth of July in September.
Greenlee: Thank you, Ryan, for everything.
Ryan: Just hang on till tomorrow, ok? Then it's over.
Liza: Ohh, God. Ok, thank you very much. I think I actually needed to be scared half to death. Oh, boy. Ok, you look like hell. What's going on?
David: It's not your problem.
Liza: Yeah, well, I'm afraid that it might be. I think I'm being watched.
David: By whom?
Liza: Ryan. Kendall.
David: Why would they be watching you?
Liza: So they tried cozying up to me the other day to find out about my relationship with you.
David: You're my attorney. What is there to find out?
Liza: The whole thing felt a lot more personal than it did legal. Yeah, they somehow think that you're involved with something, and I'm somehow involved with you.
David: Why would they think that?
Liza: I don't think they actually said. But if you connect the dots, I'm sure that Greenlee's name fits in there somewhere.
David: Did you tell them anything?
Liza: Oh, yeah, sure. I told them the whole thing. No, I did not. I told them to back off. Ok, you know what? I'm actually glad that we're having this discussion now, because I think that you and I need to re-evaluate this relationship.
David: You don't say.
Liza: Listen, I'm trying to start a practice here, and with that, I need clients. And being associated with you, not exactly the best calling card -- no offense.
David: None taken. Then fire me.
Liza: Ok, I'm serious about --
David: I'm serious, too.
Liza: Really? Just like that?
David: Yeah. Yeah. Make it as public as you want.
Liza: Ok, what's the catch? Don't insult me by telling me that there's not a catch, because I know with you there's always a catch.
David: Let's just say that I have a feeling you're gonna be moving on to much bigger things, and so will I.
Bianca: Caleb? I know you hate it when people pry --
Caleb: Then don't. Don't.
Bianca: You said you saw Sonia lying there. Who is she? Was there another fire? Did you lose someone?
Caleb: Heh heh. It's a good thing you don't like to pry.
Bianca: I'm just curious, that's all.
Bianca: I don't know. Maybe I just care about you? You saved my daughter's life.
Caleb: She's the one you should thank.
Frankie: Dad. Mom. You all right?
Angie: Yeah, I'm fine. How's Miranda?
Frankie: We ran some blood, did an oxygen panel, no permanent damage.
Angie: I need you to bring in a pediatric pulmonologist just to be sure.
Frankie: All right. I'll page him. So you were at Wildwind?
Angie: It's a long story, but yeah, I was there.
Jesse: And your mother did what she does best.
Frankie: Of course, she did.
Bianca: Angie, Caleb told me how great you were with Miranda. Thank you. Thank you so, so much.
Angie: Oh, sweetie, you're welcome. Listen, I'm just glad that she's ok.
Bianca: I'm gonna go back in with her now.
Angie: Of course.
Caleb: Wow. You can see.
Angie: For now.
Caleb: Hmm. You were amazing back there.
Angie: Well, I was terrified back there.
Caleb: I never would've known it.
Angie: Caleb, you know, not many people are aware of my handicap.
Caleb: Your handicap? You missing a leg?
Angie: You know what I mean.
Caleb: I'm just glad that I could follow your instructions, Doc.
Angie: My friends call me "Angie."
Caleb: Good to know you.
David: I understand you've expressed interest in being the new D.A.
Liza: Hmm. Yeah. Well, apparently a lot of people have.
David: Yeah, but not everyone's approached Mayor Blanco for the temporary appointment.
Liza: How'd you know that?
David: Iris and I are old friends.
Liza: How old?
David: A few years ago I saved her daughter's life on the operating table.
Liza: Uh-huh. So you have a favor?
David: I think I can safely say with a word from me, you will be the new D.A.
Liza: And you would be doing this out of the kindness of your own heart, I'm sure?
David: I think you would be one hell of a district attorney.
Liza: Oh, please. You don't give a damn what kind of D.A. I would make unless somehow you would benefit from it.
David: All right, Liza, just look at this as an opportunity. You get the job you've always wanted, and I get a friendly D.A. just in case.
Liza: Just in case what? Oh, David, what are you up to now?
Madison: I was starting to worry about you, again.
Ryan: Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I had to stop and get a key made.
Madison: A key?
Ryan: Yeah. Kind of a long story.
Madison: Mm-hmm. And I'm not supposed to ask you about it, right?
Ryan: The less that you are involved the better.
Madison: Well, how is Greenlee?
Ryan: She's good. Everything is good.
Madison: It sounds good.
Madison: And David?
Ryan: I don't think we're gonna have to worry about David anymore.
Ryan: Especially after tomorrow. I'm serious. No more David in our lives.
Madison: Ok, but -- well, you're not gonna do anything foolish, are you? To David, I mean.
Ryan: Not that I wouldn't want to, but no, I'm not. No, he's taking care of this all by himself.
Madison: So we can all go have a good time at this party, then?
Ryan: Yes. And I'm gonna wear my cufflinks.
Madison: Guaranteed to bring you good luck.
Ryan: What are you talking about? They already have. They have.
Greenlee: David? David, I'm home.
David: Hello, Greenlee.
Greenlee: David. I didn't hear you come in.
David: How was your walk?
Bianca: Frankie's in there with Miranda right now.
Bianca: When he's finished, if you want to go see her, you can.
Caleb: Yeah. A little while.
Bianca: Whenever you're ready. Caleb, if you ever feel like talking --
Caleb: I don't.
Bianca: Well, if you do, I'm here. I'm so glad you've come into our lives.
Jesse: It looks like I better get back to the station.
Angie: All right, sweetie, you go ahead.
Jesse: I'll drop you home first?
Angie: Jesse, I'll be ok.
Angie: Listen, if I need it, I'll call a cab, ok? But, baby, you can't keep building me up and telling me that I can do anything, and worry about me getting home.
Jesse: You're right. You're right. All right. In that case, I will expect a hot meal on the table and an even hotter woman to greet me at the door.
Angie: Well, maybe Halle Berry will stop by.
Jesse: Angela Hubbard and Halle Berry -- whoa. There's a concept.
Angie: You know what's really funny? I started out this day thinking that I had to do exactly what David wanted me to: Resign as chief of staff, stop practicing medicine.
Angie: But I think I might have a future in this business after all, once I can get David out of the way.
Liza: [Unlocks, opens drawer, looks at David's files, then puts them back, closes, and locks drawer] "Madam District Attorney." I can work with that.
Ryan: Let me get you something. You want a glass of wine, maybe, or champagne? Some diamonds or the Congressional Medal of Honor?
Madison: Oh, you had me at "diamonds." Although Congressional Medal of Honor -- that sounds interesting.
Ryan: You deserve it, you do, for going so far above and beyond the call of duty, which is pretty much what I've been putting you through the last couple of weeks. It's almost over, though.
Madison: And I so wish that I could believe that.
Ryan: You can. It's true.
Madison: Well, you know, in a weird kind of way, I'm actually glad that all of this has happened.
Ryan: In a weird kind of way?
Madison: Yes. No, really. You've shown me what kind of a man you are, the kind of man that any woman would want in her life.
Ryan: You wait and see. You're gonna get so sick of me hanging around all the time.
Madison: I don't know. Somehow you hanging around all the time sounds kind of good. Nice change.
Ryan: After tomorrow night at the party, everything is gonna change.
Greenlee: I love this time of year. Walking through the park, it gave me a chance to really think about things.
David: That's excellent. I'm really happy to hear it.
Greenlee: Are you feeling ok, David?
David: Yeah, yeah. Never better. I was just a little worried about you, that's all.
Greenlee: Yeah, I must've been off the rails a little while ago. It must've been that dream.
David: When you needed me to save you?
Greenlee: Right. And I just realized that I've just been dwelling so much on the negative, and I've stopped enjoying my life. Like tomorrow night, for example. I can't wait to go to that party with you.
David: Hmm. You can't imagine how happy I am to hear that.
Greenlee: I think it'll be a real turning point for us.
David: It's so funny that you would say that, because while you were out walking, I was thinking the exact same thing.
Greenlee: That's great. It's feeling more and more like it used to be.
David: Maybe even better, Greenlee. I have such wonderful plans for us.
