Asher's voice: How about this -- Caleb killed my mother.

J.R.: Were there any charges filed?

Asher: No. But there were rumors -- about how the explosion wasn't an accident. It was some kind of cover-up.

[Pencil lead breaks]

J.R.: Great.

Annie: You can do this. You have to. Remember, it's for Emma.

Damon: If you're not gonna drink decaf, will you at least eat?

Liza: I am not putting anything in my body that's not caffeinated until this trial is over. Caffeine is one of the four food groups just so far as I'm concerned.

Damon: Colby. Hey.

Colby: Hi. Don't let me interrupt anything.

Liza: Hi, sweetheart. How are you doing?

Colby: I'm surviving. I didn't know you were here with her.

Damon: Yeah. Your mom is working way too hard to get through this trial.

Colby: I know how my mother works all too well. See you later. I'll call you later, ok?

Damon: Wait. Don't -- stop her!

Liza: What? It's not gonna do any good.

Damon: You know you want her back in your life, so --

Liza: Yes. Well, she has to want it, too. Ok. So let's go crucify some witnesses.

Damon: [Sighs]

Jack: Hi, sweetheart.

Greenlee: Hi, Dad.

Jack: How are you?

Greenlee: Ok. Just trying to eat something, but, shockingly, I'm not so hungry. Turkey sandwich?

Jack: No, thanks. I'm good.

Greenlee: All right, then. Let's get this party started.

Jack: Hang on a second. Did you sleep at all last night?

Greenlee: Some. Ok, more like none.

Jack: So why didn't you call me? We could've watched a movie together.

Greenlee: "Green Mile"? "Shawshank"?

Jack: "Cry Freedom"? Look, I know you're scared, but you don't have to have your game face on all the time.

Greenlee: Oh, thank God, because it's getting exhausting.

Jack: You're not alone. You do know that, right?

Greenlee: I know.

Ryan: Ok. I surrender because this is good. It's really good.

Madison: I may be a mess in the kitchen, but slapping meat between two slices of bread? Genius.

Ryan: It is. It's very good.

Madison: Wait till later. Just leave it. We'll clean up after we get back from the courthouse.

Ryan: "After we get back"?

Madison: Yeah. I thought if it's ok, I would go with you today.

Ryan: Yeah. Of course, it's ok. I just thought maybe you'd be busy with stuff, with Fusion or --

Madison: Nothing's more important than this, and I want to show my support for you and for Greenlee.

Ryan: That means a lot. Thank you.

Madison: Good. Then it's all settled.

Ryan: Just to give you fair warning, I'm not really sure what to expect. I don't know who Liza's calling to the stand as a witness, so it could be really boring. I don't know.

Madison: I'll take my chances.

[Phone rings]

Madison: Hello? This is she. I understand. I'll be there. I'm not gonna be bored. It's the court clerk. I'm the prosecution's first witness.

Colby: Hello. Are you eating alone? That's so sad.

Asher: I'm just hanging out.

Colby: Ok. Well, do you mind if I join you?

Asher: Sure. Whatever.

Colby: Thank you. Asher, when you dated a girl, did you get along with their moms?

Asher: What?

Colby: Never mind. Are you ok?

Asher: Yeah, I'm fine.

Colby: Do you want to talk about it?

Asher: Not really.

Colby: Ok. All right. So should I get the cheese fries or should I get the cob salad? Oh, God. Who am I kidding? Cheese fries for sure.

Asher: Have you ever wanted something so bad? Like, really wanted it? Like it's all you've ever thought about for years?

Colby: This isn't about the fries, is it?

Asher: Have you?

Colby: Um, I don't know. Maybe.

Asher: And the weirdest part is just when you get there -- almost get there -- it's just not what you thought it would be like at all.

Colby: In a good way or a bad way?

Asher: Every way.

Liza: What is that?

Damon: That is called water. It makes up about 70% of the human body. Ahem. That was a question on my G.E.D.

Liza: That's fascinating, really, but I was hoping for something with a little bit more oomph.

Damon: Oomph won't stop you from passing out. Do I have to remind you that you were in the hospital this morning?

Liza: And do I have to remind you to keep your voice down? Nobody can know about that.

Damon: Then you better drink up.

Liza: I better drink up or what?

Damon: Or I'll show everyone the pictures I snapped of you in your hospital gown. We're not ready to joke about that yet, are we?

Liza: Uh-uh.

Greenlee: So what's with the shortened session? Does it mean something?

Jack: No. It just means that the judge had a scheduling conflict, that's all.

Greenlee: Too bad she couldn't just cancel it altogether.

Jack: Sweetheart, you do not want this to drag on any longer than it has to, believe me. Excuse me just a second.

Greenlee: Hey.

Ryan: Hey.

Greenlee: About yesterday -- you and me out here, that kiss?

Madison: Hey, guys.

Greenlee: Wow! My own cheering section.

Ryan: Yeah. Did you get any sleep last night?

Greenlee: Do I look that bad?

Jack: No.

Madison: For someone on trial for murder, you look pretty darn good.

Greenlee: Thank you, I think. I'm fine. You didn't have to come.

Madison: Actually, I did. I'm Liza's first witness today.

Jack: And you do know what her focus is going to be?

Madison: What I overheard Greenlee saying about wanting to kill David.

Jack: Right. Madison, it's perfectly normal to feel just a little bit nervous.

Madison: Glad to hear I'm normal.

Jack: But since you know the line of questioning, you're one step ahead of the game.

Ryan: That's right. Don't let Liza rattle you, ok?

Madison: I want to help Greenlee.

Jack: Don't worry about that. What I want you to do when you sit down in that stand in there is take a deep breath and tell the truth.

Madison: All right.

Judge: Ms. Colby, you're up.

Liza: The prosecution calls Madison North.

J.R.: Hi.

Marissa: Hi. I'm just here to pick up some more of A.J.'s things. I was hoping that you'd let me get them myself and not make me go through the court. J.R.?

J.R.: Yeah. Of course. Anything for A.J.

Marissa: What is that?

J.R.: I just found this in the drawer. I bought it months ago before everything -- it's for you.

Marissa: Me?

J.R.: Happy anniversary. It's hard to believe it's already been a year, isn't it?

Marissa: Yeah. I can't decide if it was the longest or the shortest. So much has happened.

J.R.: Good and bad. A lot more bad.

Marissa: You should keep that.

J.R.: It's yours.

Marissa: I don't want it, J.R. I don't want any more ties, any more memories. Thank you, but --

J.R.: I understand.

Marissa: Ok, well, I guess I'll go get A.J.'s stuff, then.

J.R.: I can help if you want.

Marissa: Yeah?

J.R.: Yeah.

Marissa: Yeah, that would be great. It's kind of a long list.

J.R.: How did we get here?

Marissa: I don't know.

J.R.: What are you doing?

Annie: I'm just collecting the last of my things.

Marissa: I'll leave you two, ok?

J.R.: No, Marissa, don't.

Marissa: I came here for A.J., not for you.

J.R.: Annie doesn't live here anymore. She was in no condition to drive. She didn't even sleep in the house.

Marissa: Yeah, it looks like it was a rough one. Were you celebrating Scott's incarceration?

Annie: No. That's not what happened.

Marissa: I don't care. The beauty of moving out of this house is I don't have to deal with any of this anymore, and, hopefully, neither will A.J.

Annie: Forget I was even here.

Marissa: Yeah, I wish.

J.R.: She stayed in the gatehouse.

Marissa: So?

J.R.: I'm serious, Marissa. She's not supposed to be here.

Marissa: So? You weren't supposed to sleep with her either. Nothing you say means anything, J.R.

J.R.: Stop it. Don't make this about Annie anymore! She's no longer in my life!

Marissa: She has everything to do with your life, J.R. She's the reason for us falling apart, for Scott going to prison, for the precious company you're about to self-destruct! Annie is the reason for all of it. And since this house isn't safe with her anywhere near it, she's the reason that you're going to lose your son.

Colby: Why do I feel like you want to tell me something?

Asher: I'm just in a weird mood. Forget it.

Colby: If you ever want to talk about it, I'm a decent listener.

Asher: Thanks, but I'm good.

Colby: Not that I would take my own advice, considering my life is a disaster zone right now.

Asher: Except for Damon.

Colby: Mm-hmm. Except for Damon.

Asher: So what's your deal? Tell us about your disaster zone. Are you still on level orange or -- don't tell me red?

Colby: No, no, no. No, we are hovering around level hot pink. Yeah. But I thought about what you said about the drama in my family, rising above it.

Asher: And?

Colby: And I don't really know what that means at this point. Like, whose side am I supposed to be on? I love my brother and I want to support him no matter what.

Asher: So do it.

Colby: But I can't do it if the only thing he wants is revenge.

Asher: A little revenge is sometimes a good thing. Sometimes you got good reason.

Colby: Uh-uh. No. It just seems like a waste to me.

Asher: If you ask me, revenge has its perks. Sometimes when everything goes to hell, it's the only thing that can just keep you going.

Liza: Ms. North, do you recall me visiting you at Mr. Lavery's apartment last month?

Madison: I do.

Liza: So then you remember telling me that you heard Mrs. Hayward say that she wanted to kill her husband?

Madison: Yes. But --

Liza: Just answer the question. Yes or no, please?

Madison: Yes.

Liza: And where were you when you heard her say this?

Madison: Nowhere.

Liza: I'm sorry?

Madison: I wasn't anywhere when I heard it because I didn't hear it. When I told you that Greenlee said that, I was lying. We discussed that, remember?

Liza: We did, didn't we? And why would you do that, Ms. North? Lie?

Madison: Because I was jealous.

Liza: Just to clarify for the jury, will you please describe your relationship with Mr. Lavery?

Madison: We're dating.

Liza: Is he your boyfriend?

Madison: I guess you could say that, yes.

Liza: Do you love him?

Jack: Objection. Relevance.

Liza: Withdrawn. So when you say you were jealous, you were jealous of Ryan and Greenlee, correct?

Madison: Yes.

Liza: Hmm. How come?

Madison: It's no secret that Ryan and Greenlee have history.

Liza: "History"? That is really putting it mildly, isn't it? Ryan and Greenlee were married at one point, and they were just about to get married again prior to Mrs. Hayward's accident. Isn't that true?

Madison: Yes.

Liza: Yes. So even though he was your boyfriend, you were afraid that romantic feelings still existed between Greenlee and Ryan. Ms. North, isn't that correct?

Madison: I -- I guess so.

Liza: You guess so?

Madison: Yes.

Liza: Yes. Ok. That really brings up a very interesting point. I think we need to talk further about Greenlee and Ryan's relationship. So, Ms. North, when did this rekindled friendship between Ryan Lavery and Greenlee Hayward begin?

Madison: I don't know, exactly.

Liza: Give me a ballpark.

Madison: I guess it would be around the time when David --

Liza: The deceased.

Madison: Was charged with manipulating the books at Fusion.

Liza: Which just happens to synch up with the accusations that he was responsible for Erica Kane's plane crash.

Madison: I wouldn't know anything about that.

Liza: Would you know anything about the fact that he was blackmailing Greenlee?

Madison: No.

Liza: No. Of course, you wouldn't.

Jack: Objection. Argumentative.

Judge: Sustained.

Liza: Would you know anything about the fact that she wanted to leave her husband?

Madison: Yes.

Liza: For Ryan?

Madison: What? No.

Jack: Objection. Leading the witness.

Judge: Sustained. Careful, Ms. Colby.

Liza: My apologies.

Jack: Your honor, permission to approach the bench?

Judge: Granted. Mr. Montgomery?

Jack: I would just like to understand the relevance of this line of questioning.

Liza: This line of questioning goes to the motive, your honor. Not only am I trying to establish the fact that the defendant was being blackmailed by her husband --

Jack: "Allegedly blackmailed."

Liza: I'm also trying to establish the fact that she is still in love with her ex-husband.

Judge: I'll allow it.

Liza: Thank you. Ms. North, I'm sorry. This must be very difficult for you having to admit that your boyfriend is being pulled back in by his ex.

Colby: So I've done my whole mind-my-own-business thing, but, seriously, this is getting ridiculous. Revenge is the only thing that keeps you going?

Asher: I said "can be," not "is."

Colby: Oh. Ok. So I guess that's a really big difference. So who do you want to get revenge against?

Asher: No one.

Colby: Hmm. You're lying. Lying.

Asher: I was just talking. I didn't mean anything by it.

Colby: All right. I guess I should be used to it by now.

Asher: To what?

Colby: You shutting down, considering you do it all the time. I mean, you and me, I thought we were friends.

Asher: We are friends.

Colby: Yeah, and you saved my life, and isn't that supposed to bond two people?

Asher: Did it?

Colby: I don't know. You know all about my family, the insanity. You basically saw me have a breakdown at the police station.

Asher: Trust me, I've seen worse.

Colby: Then why the minute anything personal comes up in your life, you're like "See ya"?

Asher: I'm just not open about stuff. I'm sorry.

Colby: With me?

Asher: With anyone.

Colby: Why?

Asher: You wouldn't understand.

Colby: But I can at least give it a shot.

Asher: You have two parents who've been fighting over you your entire life.

Colby: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I did, but it kind of screws up any chance of having a normal childhood. You know?

Asher: No, I don't know. That's the whole point. I'll see you around.

J.R.: Don't you threaten me with my son.

Marissa: See, you call it "threatening." I call it "protecting him."

J.R.: It's not too late, Marissa. You can put an end to this before someone gets hurt.

Marissa: "Someone"? Now, that was a threat.

J.R.: You have zero idea of what you're getting yourself into.

Marissa: I know all I have to know, that A.J. should be nowhere near this house. It is toxic.

J.R.: Things can get ugly, and I'm not talking about you.

Marissa: Who else is there? Unless you're planning on parading our son in front of a judge or using him in some other way?

J.R.: I would never do that. I'm talking about Caleb.

Marissa: Caleb?

J.R.: You don't even know him, do you?

Marissa: I know that he's been a good friend.

J.R.: But who is he really? All I'm saying is if he comes after me, some ugly things could come out.

Marissa: Huh. Well, so much for an anniversary truce. I'll find someone to pick up A.J.'s things. Happy anniversary.

J.R.: Don't you even want to know what's in it?

Marissa: Not even a little bit.

Liza: So would you say that Greenlee and Ryan are close?

Madison: I guess so.

Liza: Are they good friends?

Madison: I'd say that, yes.

Liza: And as Mr. Lavery's girlfriend, would you say that he ever put Greenlee's needs before yours?

Madison: Greenlee was in trouble. She needed him.

Liza: Hmm. And when she needed him, he was always there, right?

Madison: That's who Ryan is.

Liza: So he would never, let's say, ignore a phone call if she was in distress?

Madison: No.

Liza: Even if he was with you?

Madison: It's not like that.

Liza: Whew. This must've been really hard for you.

Madison: Not really.

Liza: You have no problem with the fact that your boyfriend is at his ex-girlfriend's beck and call?

Madison: He's a kind man, and he was worried about her.

Liza: Ryan was worried about Greenlee?

Madison: Yes.

Liza: Hmm. And was he worried about her because of her marriage?

Madison: Yes.

Liza: What was going on in her marriage?

Madison: David was doing what he always did -- I don't know -- twisting people, manipulating them. It's no secret that Ryan hated David.

Liza: And it's no secret that Greenlee hated David, too.

Jack: Objection.

Judge: Sustained. You know better, Ms. Colby.

Liza: Thank you, Ms. North.

Madison: No, you're twisting my words.

Liza: No further questions.

Judge: Your witness, counselor.

Jack: No questions, your honor.

Greenlee: Are you insane? Liza's making it look like I killed David, because I'm still in love with Ryan.

Jack: Yes, I saw that.

Greenlee: So why aren't you up there refuting it?

Jack: Do you trust me?

Greenlee: You know I do.

Jack: Then believe me when I tell you I know what I'm doing.

Madison: I am so sorry.

Ryan: Sorry for what?

Madison: I feel like I couldn't have made Greenlee look any worse up there.

Ryan: Come on. No, you did fine.

Madison: I thought Liza was only gonna ask me about what I overheard at your place. I had no idea she was gonna start in on your relationship with Greenlee.

Ryan: It's ok. Really, you did exactly what you're supposed to do. Don't even worry about it. Greenlee's gonna be fine.

Madison: You don't know that.

Ryan: Yes, I do.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Bailiff: Everyone, please be seated.

Judge: You can call your next witness.

Liza: Your honor, the prosecution rests.

Judge: In that case, court is adjourned for the day. We'll reconvene tomorrow morning at 8 a.m.

Bailiff: All rise!

Greenlee: That's it? Liza's done?

Jack: Yeah, and she made a pretty good case. Now it's our turn.

Greenlee: You think she got the jury on her side?

Jack: Maybe, for now. But it's my job to change that, and, Greenlee, I am very good at my job.

Greenlee: I'm counting on it. I'm gonna go freshen up before I have to walk through the reporters outside.

Jack: Fine. I'll wait for you.

Ryan: I guess Greenlee is a little upset that you didn't cross-examine Madison.

Jack: Yes, she is.

Ryan: Do you think that Liza knows what we're up to?

Jack: No, I don't. She's actually set our defense up for us very nicely.

Ryan: Yeah, she has. Remind me to send her a gift basket or something.

Jack: Remind me to send you one. And thank you again for putting your neck on the chopping block for Greenlee.

Ryan: Greenlee's innocent.

Jack: Yes. But if this thing ends up biting you in the butt, just know I'm at your disposal.

Ryan: Thank you, Jack. I appreciate it, but don't worry about me right now. Let's just keep the focus where it needs to be -- on Greenlee.

Colby: Thanks.

Marissa: Hey.

Colby: Hi.

Marissa: Have you seen A.J.? He's supposed to be with Krystal.

Colby: No. She must've brought him home.

Marissa: Ok. Cool.

Colby: Marissa --

Marissa: No. If you're gonna start in on me about A.J. --

Colby: No, I am not gonna start in on anything, because I don't want any of this.

Marissa: Yeah. Join the club.

Colby: Then make it go away.

Marissa: How?

Colby: You need to stop this custody fight with J.R. before it gets bloody.

Marissa: And what, just hand A.J. over to J.R., let him suffer in that house?

Colby: A.J. is J.R.'s son.

Marissa: Yes, he's my son, too. Colby, I would think that you would be the last person that I would need to explain this to. That house -- it's not healthy. Not for adults, and definitely not for a child.

Colby: No, I totally get what you're saying. But A.J. is the only good, decent thing we have left in our family. With my dad gone and Uncle Stuart's death, and now Scott and now you --

Marissa: It isn't A.J.'s job to save your family.

Colby: Look, I know J.R. messed up. But he loves that little boy, and he needs him. Please, Marissa, don't do this.

Annie: That's right. One room, two twin beds. No, I don't have another credit card. Are you sure? Ok. Yeah, I'll call the credit card company. Thank you. Ohh. Did I make things worse for you and Marissa?

J.R.: Yes, you did.

Annie: See? That's why I have to get out of here, except I have no cash, the Feds have frozen all my accounts, and all my credit cards have been canceled. I am completely screwed.

J.R.: I told you I'd lend you money.

Annie: And I told you I don't want your money. Agh. Ow. I'm sorry for walking in on you and Marissa. It won't happen again. Ooh. Ow.

J.R.: You ok?

Annie: No, I am not ok. Ohh. Once the room stops spinning, I will get out of here. Whew. I made a real jerk of myself yesterday, huh?

J.R.: Wasn't one of your finest moments.

Annie: Do I ever even have those?

J.R.: The fact that I'm sitting here breathing, living, I'd say yeah, you do. Thanks again for not telling Marissa why Scott did what he did.

Annie: It's not my place.

J.R.: Still, you and me in bed again wouldn't go over too well in A.J.'s custody case.

Annie: Marissa will never find out from me.

J.R.: If you're still having a tough time finding a place to stay, you can hang here another night.

Annie: Really?

J.R.: Just stick to the gatehouse.

Annie: Thanks.

Madison: I am so sorry.

Greenlee: Don't be.

Madison: The last thing I wanted was to hurt your case. I hope you believe that.

Greenlee: Liza's a master at twisting the truth.

Madison: Ohh. Here we are at your murder trial, and you're out here making me feel better.

Greenlee: Trust me, I could yell at you if you'd like.

Madison: I just wasn't prepared for all those questions, you know? And when she came at me about you and Ryan, it's -- if I made things worse for you --

Greenlee: I'm not really sure that things could get worse at this point, actually.

Madison: Well, I hope you beat this. I really do.

Greenlee: Thank you.

Ryan: Hey. Boys allowed at this meeting?

Madison: If the boy is you. I'm gonna get some water. Anyone need anything?

Greenlee: I'm fine.

Ryan: Yeah. No, I'm good.

Madison: Ok. I'll be right back.

Ryan: Ok. So how you holding up?

Greenlee: Truth?

Ryan: Always.

Greenlee: I'd be better if you weren't here.

Ryan: What are you talking about?

Greenlee: How do you think this looks, Ryan? My ex-fiancÚ, ex-husband, ex-love-of-my-life sitting behind me, supporting me day in, day out? We're giving the jury the wrong idea.

Ryan: Greenlee --

Greenlee: We need to be smart about this. From here on out, you stay away from the trial.

Annie: My stuff is all over this house.

J.R.: Why don't you let one of the maids help you?

Annie: I don't think any of them really want to help me right now. Plus, it's not that long of a trek to the gatehouse, so it's ok. I'm sure you both have work to do. Excuse me.

[Asher walks in]

J.R.: I know. I shouldn't have her anywhere near here. I should be buying her a one-way ticket to Singapore or Denmark.

Asher: But you can't, can you?

J.R.: It's not a can or can't situation.

Asher: You know, everyone thinks that this place is just one crazy mess of a house where everyone's backstabbing each other. Nobody's marriage even lasts a year. And it is a crazy mess, don't get me wrong. But I grew up in a house where my mother and father were solid, together. Perfect way to grow up, right?

J.R.: I'm guessing not?

Asher: Everyone was just trudging through life. No fights, no dreams. It was just there. Nothing changed. Nothing really even seemed to matter. Here, at least you guys care. The Chandlers fight. You don't run away.

Marissa: I'm not trying to hurt anyone.

Colby: Except J.R.

Marissa: I'm just trying to keep A.J. safe and do what's best for him.

Colby: Do you honestly think that keeping him safe is having parents fight all the time? Trust me, I am a product of a divorce, and it's brutal.

Marissa: I know. If there were any other way to do this, I would.

Colby: There is another way. You can let A.J. stay with us, and I will promise you I will look out for him. I will make sure he's happy. I will --

Marissa: You can't promise that. Don't you see? What goes on in that house is beyond your control, Colby. You need someone to protect you, too. Listen, I do understand what you are saying about your family and how A.J. is the one shining, bright spot. I feel that way, too. No matter what, I could get through the day as long as I saw his smiling face or heard him let out one of those belly laughs of his.

Colby: Yeah, exactly.

Marissa: He makes all our lives better just by being there. It's amazing. But it's not his responsibility to keep us going. He shouldn't have any responsibilities except being a kid. He deserves that, Colby.

Colby: No, no, I know he does.

Marissa: And I do love him with all my heart.

Colby: I know that. I just sometimes feel like without A.J., our lives are gonna fall apart.

Marissa: You can't count on a 6-year-old to hold your family together. You need to figure out how to do that on your own.

Ryan: You don't want me here?

Greenlee: Of course, I do. Are you kidding me? When things get crazy and Liza's foaming at the mouth, I turn around and see your face. You have no idea.

Ryan: Yeah, I got some idea.

Greenlee: But Liza's laid some serious groundwork in there about my feelings for you, and the last thing we need is the jury thinking I killed David to be with the man I really love. And since that's the story that Liza is spinning, we can't give her any more ammunition. Do you understand that?

Ryan: Totally.

Greenlee: So you'll stay away?

Ryan: Not a chance.

Greenlee: Did you just not hear everything that I just said? Because yesterday you kissed me right here, out of the blue.

Ryan: That was to shut you up, ok? That was for your own good.

Greenlee: Really? You know, soon you'll have to face reality. If my dad gets me acquitted --

Ryan: "When" your dad gets you acquitted.

Greenlee: They'll be coming for you, especially if they think we're in love.

Ryan: You're not gonna sell me on this, Greenlee. I'm sorry.

Greenlee: Listen to me, Ryan.

Ryan: No, you listen to me. I'm gonna be here until this is over. Ok? And it will be over. I promise you.

Greenlee: How do you know it will be over? Because you're gonna make sure of it? You're not gonna take the fall for me, Ryan.

Ryan: Let it go, Greenlee. I'm serious. Please.

Greenlee: No. When have you ever known me to let something go? Not happening.

Ryan: Not even if I ask really nicely?

Greenlee: Fine. So what if I ask really nicely for you not to show your face around here?

Ryan: How did you put it? Oh, that's right. "Not happening."

Annie: There's my life -- stuffed into a garbage bag. Perfect. [Crying]

Colby: Marissa, maybe give it some time. With Annie moving out, things are gonna be different. And I promise you that J.R. will get it together.

Marissa: When? I just came from the house, Colby. Annie's still there -- and she looks like a total mess, by the way. And J.R. wasted no time in threatening me. He made it painfully clear that things are just going to get worse, nastier. And I can't have A.J. around that -- I won't.

Colby: So you're done? There's no give-and-take at all?

Marissa: I gave and gave and gave. You know that. There's nothing left except my love for A.J.

Colby: I miss you, Marissa.

Marissa: I miss you, too.

Colby: I would give anything for you and J.R. to work things out.

Marissa: Colby --

Colby: But since that's not gonna happen, I guess I have to choose.

Marissa: Says who? J.R.?

Colby: Yeah, at first I thought it was a stupid idea, but he's right, and so are you. J.R. and A.J. are all that I got, and I'm the only one keeping this family together, so I guess this is me choosing them.

Damon: How are you feeling?

Liza: I'm feeling pretty decent, actually. I'm energized.

Damon: I guess Hmm. I guess eviscerating people on the stand will do that for you.

Liza: "Eviscerating"? Ooh. Was that on your GED exam as well?

Damon: No, that's what Jason does to the space mutants in "Intergalactic 4." It's a great movie.

Liza: Right.

Damon: Seriously, you kicked ass, Counselor.

Liza: I did, didn't I?

Jack: Hey, Madison. I see you're still in one piece.

Madison: I'll live.

Jack: Liza's line of questioning was a bit of a surprise, but I think you handled yourself real well.

Madison: Thank you.

Jack: Sure.

Madison: I know you must think I'm crazy.

Jack: Why is that?

Madison: You were there when Ryan and Greenlee -- I know what it looks like, ok? Like I'm the biggest sucker in the world to think that I could have a future with him.

Jack: Let me tell you something you may not know. Love is crazy. That's what keeps it so interesting.

Greenlee: Forget all this asking crap. It's my trial, my decision.

Ryan: You need your friends around you, Greenlee.

Greenlee: Friends maybe, but you, me? Do you know how hard it is to ignore you when I know you're close by, to pretend that we're causal exes, and especially with a jury watching us like a hawk?

Ryan: I got to go. I'll see you tomorrow.

Greenlee: You show up tomorrow, I swear to God I'll have you thrown out of that courtroom.

Ryan: I'll see you tomorrow, Greenlee. Have a good night.
