Kendall: What are you doing here?
Greenlee: Do you really need to ask me that? They wouldn't le me leave the courthouse, and I needed to make sure you were ok. What am I -- of course you're not ok. I just -- I'm so sorry about Zach. I know it doesn't -- tell me what to do, and I'll do it.
Kendall: You really want to help me?
Greenlee: Yes. Anything.
Kendall: Bring my husband back.
Ryan: I'm really glad that your ride to jail is taking its time, because I am nowhere near done with you.
Jack: Liza, give me a minute.
Liza: Really, was that necessary?
Jack: You don't think you're just gonna walk away from this, do you? My daughter may be free, but your good friend justice is a long way from being served.
Liza: What do you want from me? He has already arrested him.
Jack: I want you to prosecute him for the fraud he committed on this entire community. He almost put my daughter behind bars for the rest of her life, now, come on! Somebody has to stop this, stop him.
Liza: Uh-ha! And that somebody, I guess, is me?
Ryan: It must've felt good, huh, knowing that you fooled us all, but an innocent man died, but really what's the big deal? A little collateral damage.
David: Here's a tip for you, ok? Stay the hell away from me.
Ryan: At least you went down feeling like a genius, because, let's face it, that's all you ever care about anyway.
David: That's where you're wrong, Ryan. All I ever really cared about was my wife. From the moment I found Greenlee in that icy river, my job, my goal was to keep her safe from you. And don't think for a second I'm done.
Greenlee: I wish I could give you what you want, because I would.
Kendall: But you can't.
Greenlee: I know I can't. I hate this. I hate that Zach was on that plane because I -- and now one of the best men I've ever known is gone. We will get through this, Kendall.
Kendall: Really? How? When? Just go.
Kendall: Greenlee, being here with you is not helping. It's --
Greenlee: What? It's ok. Say it. Being here with me is what? This is worse than anything I could imagine. I get that. And whatever you need, I'm in. You need to cry, we'll cry. You need to vent, vent at me. You want to just sit here in silence, I'll do that, too. Anything, Kendall.
Jesse: Everybody knows that David Hayward is Mayor Blanco's golden boy.
Jack: And what's to stop her from using you to continue to protect him?
Liza: Me. I am, because he lied to me, too. He used me. So, pressure or not, I'm gonna do what I need to do.
Jack: Good. Because either you take care of Hayward, or I will.
Ryan: It's over, David. You lost. Not only did your plan fail, but it totally backfired. It's because of you, Greenlee and I are together now. But don't worry about it, because you won't be alone for too long. You'll have all your new inmate friends.
David: You know what's so funny about all of this? You really think you're saving Greenlee from me. You, the man who caused her more pain than anybody walking on this planet. I found her in that river. Ok? I am the one who put her back together. I am the one that stood her when no one else would.
Ryan: You're forgetting all of the good parts -- all the lies, the threats, the blackmailing. But don't worry about it, because where you're going, you can never hurt Greenlee again.
Jesse: Your ride's here.
Ryan: You have a good time on the inside there, Hayward.
Jack: Ryan, where's Greenlee? Where is she?
Ryan: She went to help Kendall.
Bianca: She's gonna need all our help. Zach's dead because he pretended to be.
Jack: Ok. Let's all get out of here. Come on.
Kendall: What do you want me to say?
Greenlee: I don't want -- you don't have to say anything.
Kendall: Am I angry?
Greenlee: How could you not be?
Kendall: Would I still have a husband if you hadn't been in trouble, if he hadn't gone to help you? Yes. Yes to all of it. He would be home. He would be here. He'd be making the boys laugh and kissing me good night. He'd be rolling his eyes when he made those -- when he was making those things. Those things that you -- so people know where they're sitting.
Greenlee: Place cards?
Kendall: Yeah. Place cards. I would have him make them in the shape of a turkey for Thanksgiving. He hated doing that, but he would do it.
Greenlee: Because he loves you.
Kendall: He can't love me. Not now. Not anymore. The boys.
Greenlee: Have you told them
Kendall: No. I can't. I can't. I can't even say the damn words. I can't even say them in my head. How am I supposed to tell my sons, when all I really want to do, all I'm aching to do, is curl up in a ball on the floor and never get up?
Greenlee: Kendall --
Kendall: No. And why did this happen? Why? Because of David? Because David wasn't really dead? But Zach had to go --
Greenlee: Because of me. You know you want to say it, so just say it. Zach got on that plane to help me.
Kendall: I don't want to do this.
Greenlee: Why not? He would be here with you, with the boys, home. You're my best friend, and without you, I'd be a mess. If you need to scream at me, and you need to blame me, go ahead. Blame me.
Krystal: What are you doing back here?
Marissa: I was looking for you. I figured David would be locked up by now.
Krystal: Let's get out of here. Let's just go. Come on.
Marissa: What's going on?
David: Marissa? Please wait. Wait a minute. Is it really too much to ask to have a moment alone with my daughter?
Marissa: Yeah, actually, it is.
David: Marissa, you're gonna want to hear this.
Krystal: Leave her alone, David!
David: It's about A.J.
Marissa: What could you possibly have to say about my son?
David: He's my grandson, too. Even though I've been gone --
Marissa: "Gone," "dead" -- what's the difference, right?
David: I've been following your struggles very closely from afar.
Marissa: I'm sorry. "My struggles"?
David: J.R. did exactly what I knew he would. He used every dirty trick in the book to pull A.J. out from under you.
Krystal: You would know. You wrote that book.
David: The point I'm trying to make -- the war isn't over. You can still have A.J. if you want him.
Krystal: You're not listening to this. Come on.
Marissa: Wait. Say what you have to say.
David: I know I let you down, but I can help you now.
Kendall: What do you want from me?
Greenlee: I just -- I want to know what you're feeling.
Kendall: You want me to yell at you? You want me to tell you you're the reason that Zach is gone? Would that make you feel better?
Greenlee: No. I don't know. I was lucky enough to call him a friend, a good friend. God knows we've been through a lot. I loved him, too, and I can't even begin to imagine your pain. But in order to help you through this, I just need to know so we can help.
Greenlee: Me, Ryan -- we're here for you, whatever you need, whenever you need it.
Kendall: You and Ryan?
Greenlee: Yes. We love you, Kendall. You know that. And Spike is obviously going to need his dad. And maybe we could just move in for a little while. We could relieve you with the boys. We could give you time to process this, to grieve, to heal.
Kendall: You're together now?
Greenlee: It's new. Really new. I mean, obviously. But, yes, Ryan and I are together.
Greenlee: It happened when we were in California, on that island.
Kendall: While you were waiting for Zach?
Greenlee: We were there, and Ryan was fighting to keep me free, and then all of a sudden, there we were. But that's not important right now because this isn't about us. It's about you.
Kendall: No, don't. Don't touch me! Don't touch me.
David: Just give me the chance, all right? I just want to see A.J. where he belongs, with his mother.
Marissa: Thank you. I mean it. Thank you for this reminder. While you were dead, I kind of forgot.
David: Forgot what?
Marissa: That I came from you, that I came from this, where plans and schemes and breaking every rule is just part of everyday life. Do you know how much it terrifies me to think that I am capable of bringing people to tears over nothing, that I have those sick and selfish instincts anywhere inside me? But I do.
Krystal: Sweetheart, you do not.
Marissa: Yes, I do. It is killing me to think that I could lose A.J. forever, and you better believe that I will fight for him harder than I have ever fought before. But unlike you, I have limits. Unlike you, I want to set an example for my child, earn his respect. But most of all, I want to make sure that he never, ever looks at me the way that I looked at you in there.
Jesse: Look alive, Monroe. We've got a prisoner to book.
Brot: You got to be kidding me.
Jesse: I wish I was.
David: What? No "Welcome Home" banner? Come on. I expected at least a cake.
Jesse: Book him.
David: All right, wait a minute. Before you start parading me around like some circus animal, I believe I'm entitled to a phone call.
Jesse: This is true, but I don't think anybody in their right mind would pick up.
[David is fingerprinted and photographed]
Kendall: All right, I don't want your help or your sympathy or your ideas about what will make me feel better.
Bianca: Kendall --
Kendall: I just want to be left alone.
Jack: Greenlee, what happened here?
Greenlee: Nothing. I don't know. We were just talking.
Kendall: And now we're not. Please, I can't deal with all of you here right now. Please, I just want for you all to leave. Why won't you go?
Bianca: Why don't you sit down?
Kendall: I don't need to sit.
Bianca: Talk to me. What's wrong?
Kendall: What's wrong? What's wrong? I'll tell you what's wrong. My best friend over here says she wants to help me, says that I'm in pain, but we're gonna get through it together. Ok. All right. Well, we're through it. And then what? My husband is gone. My life, over, when hers will just be starting with Ryan. Greenlee gets to be with her soulmate. Me? I get to figure out how to live without mine.
Ryan: Look, Kendall, I know what you must be going through --
Kendall: You have no idea what I'm going through. Every time I look at the two of you I'll be reminded of what I had and what I lost.
Jack: Look, if there is anything that we can do --
Kendall: Stop. Please stop. Please. I can't -- I can't. All right? I just need this day to be over. I'd really like for all of you to just go. Please, please!
Greenlee: Kendall's right. We should go. We should give her some space. I'm sorry if I pushed you. I'm sorry for everything.
Bianca: I don't want to leave you.
Kendall: Binks, I need to be alone. I haven't been alone. Please? I need this.
Bianca: Ok. Call me. I'll be here in five minutes, less.
Krystal: Why is it that I went into that courtroom and looked around and just clammed up. But not you, honey. You charged in there, guns blazing.
Marissa: Why is it that he can still get to me like he does?
Krystal: Because he's David. Honey, you are not the person that you were when he left. You're stronger. You are an honest-to-goodness lawyer, and you're a damn good one, according to Caleb. You did that. No one else. You broke away from J.R., and you did it with such -- with such class and such integrity, while David does what, huh? Nothing. Nothing but hurt and lie and manipulate. You are ten times the person that he will ever be.
Marissa: Well, I must get that from you.
Greenlee: I can't stand that she feels so alone.
Ryan: She's got us.
Greenlee: Except she doesn't want us, or at least she doesn't want me.
Ryan: Give her some time. She'll come around. It's not gonna be easy, but she will.
Greenlee: How? I mean, Kendall is strong.
Ryan: And she's tough, and she's resilient.
Greenlee: But this isn't about surviving. Zach just had this way about him, you know?
Ryan: Yeah, I definitely know.
Greenlee: He kept her grounded. He was her everything. He was the man who taught her how to really love, that love could actually last. Losing him would be like me losing you. She has a right to be angry.
Ryan: At you?
Greenlee: All this time, it's been about me -- saving me, helping me -- and here I am, free, without a scratch on me. Not only that, I have you.
Ryan: Yeah, you do.
Greenlee: It isn't fair. She shouldn't have to pay for my mistake.
Ryan: David's mistake.
Greenlee: It all started with me. No matter how you look at it, we wouldn't be here if I hadn't married him in the first place.
Ryan: Blaming yourself isn't gonna help anybody. It's not. It's certainly not gonna help Kendall.
Greenlee: She's looking for answers, a reason that all this happened.
Ryan: There isn't one. There isn't one. So I know you want to fix things, and I get that. I want to fix things, too. But maybe all we can do right now is just support our friend.
Opal: Kendall? How you holding up, honey?
Kendall: One day at a time, I guess.
Opal: I'd start with one minute and work my way up. It's the only way I managed after Palmer.
Kendall: Is there something I can do for you?
Opal: I'm just calling to tell you that I've got Spike and Ian here. In fact, Krystal is feeding them a snack as we speak.
Kendall: What happened to my mother?
Opal: She had to field some calls from the police in California.
Kendall: She didn't have to. I could've done that.
Opal: She knows you could've. She knows, also, that you shouldn't have to.
Kendall: Bring them home.
Opal: Are you sure?
Opal: Well, whatever you say, then. I'll skedaddle them right on home, pronto.
Kendall: I'll here.
Griffin: Mrs. Slater. I hope I'm not interrupting. I'm actually here to see your husband. We've got some Miranda Center business to hash out, and I've placed a bunch of calls. And if didn't know any better, I'd say he was ignoring me. So --
Kendall: He's not ignoring you. He's dead.
Brot: Sign here. Must've been a wild day in court.
David: It had its moments, that's for sure.
Brot: Yeah. How was that moment for you?
Greenlee: We want to make a statement.
Jesse: I appreciate that, and I will definitely take you up on that, but not right now.
Greenlee: Now is good for me.
Jesse: It's gonna take a while for him to be completely processed, Greenlee, hours before he even lands in a jail cell.
Ryan: Jesse's right. Maybe we shouldn't stick around for this.
Greenlee: I'm fine. He's chained to a chair, right? How much damage can he do?'
Jesse: Did she just ask that question?
Greenlee: I'm staying.
Ryan: I think she's staying.
Jesse: Suit yourself.
David: I was very moved by what you said -- at my grave.
Greenlee: You mean John Doe's grave, right? And you should've been moved, you bastard.
David: Ok, I don't want to fight with you.
Greenlee: My feelings for you were real. Because no matter what crap you doled out, you were still the man who saved my life. I was grateful. I still am. That will never go away.
David: Just like my love for you.
Greenlee: I wish you could see yourself the way I see you, hear yourself the way I hear you. You don't love me.
David: Yes, I do.
Greenlee: No, love comes from a good place, a warm, unconditional, caring place. What you have comes from anger and pain and jealousy.
David: Absolutely not true.
Greenlee: The things you did --
David: I just can't believe that you're questioning my devotion to you. I came back here, Greenlee, for you. I knew full well what the risk would be, how it would turn out.
Greenlee: So I'm supposed to applaud you for cleaning up your mess?
David: No, no. You're supposed to understand me, just like I will always understand you.
Greenlee: Oh, my God. You still think you can win me back.
Griffin: My God. You're serious. How? I'm sorry. You don't have to answer that.
Kendall: I'm sure you can read all about it in the paper.
Griffin: I'm so sorry for your loss.
Kendall: Yeah. And it was the first time I've said it like that. I've said "gone" and "lost," but I guess that's not really what it is, is it?
Griffin: No. I guess not.
Kendall: Because "gone" is just not here. And "lost" means that he can be found. But his plane is at the bottom of the ocean.
Griffin: Is there someone I can call for you?
Kendall: No. I just made everybody leave, because I can't stand to see their sad faces and watch them scramble for something to say.
Griffin: There's nothing to say. People try their best.
Kendall: It's like they want me to freak out or be angry or something.
Griffin: Zach told me about your kids. He loved those two little boys.
Kendall: Yes, he did.
Griffin: Have you told them?
Kendall: No, not yet. Only one, Spike, is old enough to really understand -- as much as anyone at that age can understand. But the thought of sitting him down --
Griffin: I've had to break this kind of news to all types of people. You'd be surprised at how resilient kids are.
Kendall: That's not true. That's just something people say to make themselves feel better about messing up their kids' lives. Spike gets upset if feel give him the wrong peanut butter. Ian doesn't like if I change my hair. So please don't come here and tell me that everything's gonna be ok.
Griffin: I don't mean to interfere. I'm just offering my support if you want it.
Kendall: I don't.
Griffin: Fair enough.
Kendall: It's one thing to have to break bad news to a stranger. At the end of the day, you get to walk away, you can wipe your hand, and you're done. But these are my children. Wrapping their head around a loss like this? It'll never be done. They'll want to know why. Why did this have to happen to them? They' re gonna need me to help them make sense of it, and I'm not gonna be able to do that, because none of this makes sense. None of it.
Griffin: And I'm sorry about your husband. If there's anything I can do --
Greenlee: We are done. And the fact that you could remotely think otherwise affirms how truly deluded you are. Think about what you've done, David? Really think about it. You let your daughter think that she lost another parent. You let your grandson think that he would never see you again.
David: I did all those things for you.
Greenlee: Right. To protect me?
David: Yes. From Ryan.
Greenlee: I don't need protecting, not from him. He would never hurt me.
David: You're kidding me, right? Oh, my gosh. You're telling me that I should face reality? Well, maybe you should do the same. You barely had the will to live when you came back to Pine Valley, and why was that? Because of him, because of Ryan. Because he knifed you so deeply you didn't know if you'd even recover.
Greenlee: He never hurt me intentionally. But you? You've looked me in the eye and you lied to me a million times over. You threatened me. You blackmailed me.
David: Did that to hold on to you, Greenlee.
Greenlee: To own me. Meanwhile, because of this sick obsession, Kendall's husband is dead. Do you even care?
David: Of course, I care.
Greenlee: Oh, yeah. Sure, sure. in a "Damn, that isn't supposed to happen" kind of way. But if we ended up together, it'd all be worth it, right? Two sweet, adorable little boys have to grow up without their father now, and you of all people know how horrible that is, how you're haunted by that loss forever.
David: Don't start playing head games with me, please.
Greenlee: I'm not playing head games with you. No, not anymore. In fact, I feel sorry for you, and not because you have to spend the rest of your life behind bars -- that actually seems right on target. It's that while you're there with nothing but time to think about what you've done, you're not gonna change a bit.
Ryan: You ok?
Greenlee: Yeah. I will be once we get out of here.
Liza: It looked like that went well.
David: Not in the mood, Liza.
Liza: I don't really care what you're in the mood for. We've got some charges to go over.
David: All I'm guilty of is loving my wife.
Krystal: I thought I'd find you here.
Jack: Hi. How's Marissa?
Krystal: She showed up at the courthouse again, had another run-in with David.
Jack: Just what she needed, I'm sure.
Krystal: Actually, I think it is. Anyway, she needed some time to herself, so I thought I'd check up on you. It's in their hands now, Jack. You did your job. Time to let it go.
Jack: I'll never let this go. Until I'm sure that he can never hurt my daughter again.
Liza: David, I defended you, and not just because it was my job. Because I thought that your memory deserved better.
David: And I thanked you for all of that.
Liza: You know I ended up in the hospital?
David: No, I didn't.
Liza: Dehydration and exhaustion to honor you.
David: You know something? You did an amazing job during that court case. And if everything went according to plan, you would've convicted Ryan, and that would've been justice served.
Liza: You really believe that? Convicting an innocent man is justice?
David: Ryan is hardly an innocent man.
Liza: This whole thing has been in the works for a long time, hasn't it? It was back when I was appointed D.A. That is why you pulled strings for me with the mayor.
David: You know what they say. It helps to have friends in high places, right?
Liza: You son of a bitch.
Greenlee: I pictured this. Coming back here, being home with you, finally free. It was supposed to be so happy.
Ryan: I'm gonna get you something to eat. Want a drink?
Greenlee: Doing anything normal -- it just feels wrong.
Ryan: It's gonna get better. I promise.
Greenlee: I think you're the only person on the planet who could say that to me right now, and I would actually believe them.
Ryan: Hey, I love you.
Greenlee: I love you, too.
Ryan: It's your dad. Hey, Jack.
Jack: Ryan, how's Greenlee holding up?
Ryan: She's hanging in. Have you heard from Erica?
Jack: Yeah. She's putting some arrangements together for Zach out in California. She's gonna go by and see Kendall later.
Ryan: Let us know how that goes.
Jack: Ryan, is Greenlee there? Can she hear me right now?
Jack: Good. Keep it that way. I'm at the police station keeping an eye on Hayward.
Ryan: We were just there.
Jack: I don't trust him any farther than I can throw him, Ryan. And I don't believe for a minute that he's finished with Greenlee. I want you to keep your eyes on her. Do you understand me?
Ryan: Yeah. Of course. That's a given, Jack.
Kendall: I wish I could shield them forever.
Opal: You want me to stay around a little bit? I could get busy in the kitchen, make some dinner or something.
Kendall: No, thank you. Spike would sense something is off. He'd wonder why you're here. I need for things to feel normal for him for as long as I can. I need him to feel -- not broken.
Opal: Oh, honey.
Kendall: Spike's looking so forward to his Thanksgiving pageant tomorrow, so I just want to give that to him before it all comes crashing down.
Opal: That is exactly what you're gonna do, and you know that I'm just a phone call away if you need me. Ok? I love you all. All right.
Kendall: Hey, Spiky.
Spike: Where's Daddy Zach?
Kendall: Um, he's not here right now.
Spike: But I want him to see my costume.
Kendall: Oh, honey, he saw your costume, remember, and he loved it. He did. All those fun feathers on your headdress -- what if you fly away?
Spike: I can't fly!
Kendall: [Chuckles] You know what? You're right. I forgot. You know what else? I have a feeling that Daddy Zach knows you're gonna be great tomorrow. That's right, Spiky. He is so proud of you. So proud. So proud of you. Yeah.
