Ryan: You better run, Miranda. Spike's coming to get ya!
Kendall: Slow down. Be careful.
Greenlee: The big kid, too.
Erica: Oh, Kendall, everything looks just beautiful.
Jack: Look at that, sweetie -- my favorite wine. Zach always remembers.
Kendall: Yes, he does. I just -- I hope he hurries back with those pies, right?
Kendall: Zach, it's open. Come on, we're waiting for you. Zach?
Erica: Oh, well, I mean, of all days for the electricity to go out at Spike's school.
Jack: But the show is going on. Thanks to you.
Erica: Well, this Thanksgiving pageant is very important to Spike.
Jack: Honey, I think it's important to all of us.
Erica: Just so afraid he's gonna look out in the audience and -- Zach won't be there.
Jack: But the rest of us will.
Erica: Why am I so jumpy?
Jack: Because David Hayward is still alive. Look, all of us that know him who have ever had anything to do with him, we're all just waiting for the other shoe to drop.
Krystal: We have a little problem.
Opal: Little problem, my butt.
Krystal: Thank you, Opal. I was gonna try to ease them into it.
Amanda: Into what?
Krystal: Well, obviously it's Thanksgiving and --
Opal: We have no turkey.
Amanda: Oh --
Tad: How did this happen?
Krystal: I don't know, Tad. You know, we ended up changing our plans to have dinner at Zach and Kendall's.
Opal: And when we couldn't do that --
Krystal: I invited everybody to come over here, and I closed the restaurant down for half a day.
Tad: I remember all that. Just get back to the bird.
Krystal: I thought it was in the freezer.
Tad: Krystal, you gotta be kidding me.
Krystal: I'm not kidding. No. Please. Trust me. I've looked everywhere. I've called all the restaurants, the stores, and there's not a turkey in town.
Marissa: It's ok. We'll just have hamburgers or something.
Tad: Hamburgers? On Thanksgiving?
Amanda: Turkey burgers. But Jake has to work anyway, so --
Krystal: I do think I have a prime rib. I could cook that.
Tad: That's brilliant. That's brilliant. Let's just break out the fireworks. We could serve hot dogs. Or better yet, let's hide candy and get out the ham. I just love a good ham. No, no, no, no, no. On Thanksgiving, we got a little something in Pine Valley called tradition. This family needs a Thanksgiving dinner, now more so than ever. So after the play, we're gonna come back here. We're gonna have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with a traditional turkey, so you just count on it.
Ryan: Ok, you can go over there and you pick out whatever pie you want, all right?
Emma: Spike likes chocolate. I wish we were going to his house.
Ryan: Yeah. Me, too, sweets. Me, too. Hey. Hey, guys. How you doing?
Woman: Hi, cutie. You look pretty.
Ryan: Hi. How you doing?
David: How thoughtful, Liza. Now what did you bring me for Thanksgiving?
Liza: This is a turkey sandwich, and it's for me. I'm not feeling particularly thankful.
David: Would you like to know what I'm thankful for?
Liza: If I were you, I would run like hell.
Greenlee: I'm not running anywhere. I'm here for just one reason -- to make sure you're being sent away.
David: Well, it certainly looks that way, doesn't it?
Greenlee: What's that supposed to mean?
David: It means I'm being transferred to lockup today. But I wanted to see you first.
Greenlee: Do you have any idea how sad you are?
David: Why? It's the truth.
Greenlee: The truth? You don't even know what that word means.
David: You know I love you, Greenlee. That's as true now as it ever was.
Greenlee: I don't care.
David: You have every right to be angry with me.
Greenlee: I'm not angry. I'm disgusted with myself for ever allowing you into my life. Zach is dead because of that.
David: I know you're very upset about Zach, but he died in a plane crash that neither you nor I was responsible for.
Greenlee: Oh, that's right. It's never your fault.
David: I asked you here right now, because I wanted to give you my very best, ok? And I am so happy, Greenlee, that you're free. That you're safe.
Greenlee: You wanted Ryan in a jail cell, and now it's got your name on it. Enjoy it.
Ryan: It's good to see you.
Madison: Yeah, well, it's good to be seen. Sorry. That was lame.
Ryan: No, it's all right. It's ok.
Madison: Terrible news about Zach.
Ryan: Yeah. It really is.
Madison: I tried calling Kendall at the house, but --
Ryan: She's going through such an incredibly bad time. I just -- I'm sure she really appreciates it.
Emma: What are you doing for dinner?
Madison: I have to work.
Ryan: Hey, Ems, why don't you go and grab that pie? Choose whichever one you want, ok? Ok. So -- how are you really doing?
Madison: I'm hanging in. You doing Thanksgiving with Greenlee?
Ryan: Madison --
Madison: Ryan, please don't. I heard about what Greenlee did, how she was willing to go to prison for you. She must really love you.
Ryan: I really never meant to hurt you, Madison, and I'm so sorry that --
Madison: If you tell me that some lucky guy is gonna come along and sweep me off my feet --
Ryan: Ok. Ok. All right. But he is gonna be very, very lucky.
Madison: I should go. Happy Thanksgiving, Ryan.
Ryan: Yeah, yeah. You, too. You, too.
Emma: Hey. You can't work today. Even the Pilgrims and the Indians had Thanksgiving day off. Come eat turkey with us and Greenlee.
Ryan: Yeah, I mean, it's true everybody's missing Zach right now. Nobody should be alone.
Emma: Please come, Madison. I never get to see you anymore.
Madison: Oh, sweetie, I know, I know, but I can't come to dinner tonight, ok? Maybe another time. I gotta go.
Jack: Greenlee, why would you go see David in jail?
Greenlee: I just wanted to be sure that he was really going to be locked away.
Jack: Let him send you a postcard from prison. I don't want you anywhere near that son of a bitch.
Greenlee: Ok. I get it.
Greenlee: Can we drop it?
Greenlee: Today is supposed to be about Kendall and the boys and Zach.
Jack: You're absolutely right. Come here.
Greenlee: You're being such a dad. I kind of like it.
Jack: Yeah. Me, too. Listen, I have to go take care of some things. I'll be back soon, all right? Come here.
Erica: All tight.
Greenlee: Do you blame me for Zach's death?
Erica: Why wouldn't I? This whole tragedy started with you.
Kendall: I hate this. I hate feeling like I could fall apart at any second, and everybody knows it.
Bianca: Have you?
Kendall: Have I what?
Bianca: Fallen apart?
Kendall: No. I can't. The boys need me to be strong.
Bianca: But I don't. I fell apart mid-conversation yesterday. Caleb didn't know what to do.
Kendall: I think Spike senses something.
Bianca: What do you mean?
Kendall: He just keeps asking me over and over, "When is Daddy Zach coming home?" And I just keep changing the subject, or I come up with some lame excuse. Then he looks at me with those big, beautiful, innocent eyes and it's like -- it's like he knows, Binx.
Bianca: All the teachers at school are aware of what happened to Zach and that Spike hasn't been told yet, so I'm sure none of them said anything.
Kendall: I know. But he's got to see it in me. I mean, it's like I'm just going through the motions here. I can't -- I can't let him see me like this today. I can't. It's too important. I'm gonna let Spike have his big moment -- in the pageant. And then I'll tell him. That's exactly what -- that's what Zach would have wanted. You know what? I gotta get the camcorder. The camcorder.
Kendall: Zach -- he got the batteries all charged up and ready to go. He knew I'd probably forget. I always reminded him about his cell phone, and he always reminded me -- [Sobbing]
Bianca: Hey, hey, hey.
Kendall: [Sobbing] I'm sorry. Sorry.
Bianca: Oh, don't be sorry. Don't be sorry.
Kendall: I don't know how I'm gonna do this. I don't know how I'm gonna get through today. I don't know how. How?
Kendall: [Sniffles] Oh, God. Do you think he heard? You don't think he heard?
Bianca: No, I don't think so. I'll go upstairs, ok?
Kendall: No, no, no, no, no. I want to see them. I want to see them. Ha ha ha hi!
Babysitter: Spike wanted to wear his costume in the car. I hope you don't mind.
Kendall: No, no, no. That's fine.
Bianca: Hey, you look great. Pretty cool, Spike.
Kendall: Yeah. Let me -- let me look at you, Mr. Indian Chief. Yeah.
Spike: Is Daddy Zach here?
Kendall: Um -- you know, it's a really busy day for everybody. Mm-hmm. And we are all so excited to see you in the play, aren't we?
Bianca: Yeah. We should get going. We don't want to be late, ok? Come on. Let's get in the car. I'll -- oh, yeah, grab a coat. Come on, bud. Ok. We'll be right back out.
Greenlee: You know how much Zach meant to me.
Erica: I know how much self-preservation means to you. But today's not about you.
Tad: How's Kendall doing?
Erica: Oh, about what you'd expect.
Tad: If you need anything --
Krystal: Anything at all.
Erica: Thank you. Excuse me.
Krystal: It's tough being a mother sometimes.
Erica: Thank you.
Ryan: There's Greenlee.
Emma: Hi, Greenlee!
Ryan: You head over. Hey.
Ryan: Hi. Wow. Tough day?
Greenlee: I went to see David, and I didn't want you coming with me, because I didn't want you to get into any more fights with him.
Ryan: So you went to see him on your own?
Greenlee: I went, I said what I had to say, and then I left. He's going to jail, and I'm spending Thanksgiving with the man I love. I'd call that a fair exchange.
Ryan: What did he have to say?
Greenlee: I'll tell you later. Hi.
Ryan: Spike, you look ready for your big day. Come over here. Let me see. Let me see you. Let me see you. Oh, my goodness. You look so great.
Erica: Hi. I love you. And everyone here does. And Bianca and I have made sure that everyone knows exactly what your wishes are. Your little boys are going to have their best Thanksgiving.
Kendall: I don't think it's gonna work.
Erica: Of course, it's gonna work. No one here is gonna tell Spike that Zach is gone.
Kendall: I'm sure everybody will be able to hide it. Everybody but me.
David: For what it's worth, I am sorry for what I put you through.
Liza: The thing is, I thought I knew you. I thought I knew what you were capable of. And I just underestimated you.
David: It was never my intention to make you look bad. I recommended you for that D.A. position because you're a damn good lawyer. And, I admit, a pretty good friend, too.
Liza: I gotta go work on your papers for the transfer. [Hands him half her sandwich.] Have a good Thanksgiving, David.
Liza: No more visitors for him.
Damon: Tell this file is all you wanted. You're not really working today.
Liza: You're not really working today.
Damon: Are you serious? You're gonna spend your holiday with that dead dude?
Liza: Work's gotta be done.
Damon: Carve him up tomorrow.
Liza: You know what? Go be with your family, all right? I got turkey on 7-grain bread. I'm good.
Guard: Sorry. No visitors.
Jack: I'm Hayward's attorney.
David: Well, if it isn't my father-in-law. Good to see you, Jack.
Jack: I've got this feeling you don't think you're finished with my daughter, but you are. So I'm warning you -- don't you go anywhere near her and don't you try to contact her.
David: You know something? I think I outrank you, Counselor. She may be your daughter, but Greenlee is still my wife.
Jack: Don't you even say her name.
David: Ok. You know something? Why don't you get the hell out of here. I got Thanksgiving dinner to --
[Jack attacks David]
Girl: This is a wonderful day.
Emma: A day to give thanks. And now each of us wants to say what we're thankful for.
Ryan: This is it. This is it. Spike's coming up next.
Emma: Now, Chief Spike, what are you thankful for?
Spike: Mommy, Daddy, brother, sister, and Daddy Zach. Daddy Zach loves Thanksgiving.
[Cheering and applause]
Greenlee: He was excellent.
Ryan: He was. Emma was excellent, too. She's like an old pro. I mean, this is Spike's first time. He's, like, amazing. It's serious star power, that kid, right?
Erica: He gets that from me.
Ryan: Of course, he does. Of course, he does. What'd you think, Mom?
Kendall: He was wonderful. I just wish Zach were here.
Erica: Oh, I think that Zach knows.
Tad: All right. Now, you make sure you get Jenny and our little squaw back to the restaurant. Put their turkey bibs on, ok?
Krystal: How in the world --
Tad: Where is the trust? Just get ready for a traditional Thanksgiving turkey.
Krystal: Where are you going?
Greenlee: I just wanna talk.
Ryan: It's not a good time.
Greenlee: But she's obviously in so much pain.
Ryan: She is in a lot of pain, but every time she sees us, she remembers the way that Zach died, ok? She knows that we're here. If she needs us, she'll come to us. Hey. right now I think we should just find Spike and tell him how great he was, ok? All right? there he is. Hey, Spike. You were so good. You were like a little rock star.
Greenlee: You did an excellent job there, buddy.
Ryan: You were so good. Look, I want to find your sister, too, so why don't you give your mommy a big hug, ok? You were great. All right.
Kendall: Hey, buddy. You know what? You were the best one in the whole play. You know that? You were. You knew all of your lines. Everybody is so proud of you. Everybody.
Erica: So proud of you, honey.
Bianca: Come on, hot shot. I think there are other people who want to congratulate you. Get autographs.
Erica: No, no. I'll go.
David: I didn't do a damn thing to provoke him. He should be the one locked away.
Jack: You know what? Lock me in here with you. We'll finish this right now, you miserable --
Jesse: Nobody is finishing anything. How did you get in here?
Liza: You used your credentials to get in here. Are you crazy?
Jesse: You know why he did this.
Liza: You know what? We're gonna deal with that later. Right now, the prison bus is here to take you away. You have to go.
Jesse: Let's get out of here.
Liza: You ok?
David: Yeah, right. Isn't it illegal to misrepresent yourself as someone's legal counsel? Hey, we might be seeing each other before you know it, Jack.
Jack: I'll look forward to it.
David: Yeah, well, be careful what you wish for.
Kendall: Did Spike see me run off?
Erica: No. No. He didn't.
Kendall: I just -- I saw him on stage looking -- he was looking for Zach, and I just -- I just couldn't.
Erica: You did. You did. You were just fine.
Kendall: No, Mom, it doesn't feel like it.
Erica: I know. I know it doesn't feel like it, honey. It's -- it's still so fresh.
Kendall: So -- time helps? Is that what you're saying, that one day I'll just be over it?
Erica: No. No, I think we both know that it's not gonna be like that.
Kendall: I just wanted the boys to have the perfect life, to always feel safe and -- and loved and wanted.
Erica: And they have all that.
Kendall: No, but they don't, Mom. They don't. They don't. Not anymore.
Erica: Of course, they do. They have you.
Kendall: I know I'm supposed to be strong for my children, but I'm not. I'm a mess.
Erica: That's not true. You will get through this.
Kendall: No, Mom, I won't. I won't. I don't have it in me anymore.
Erica: Kendall, I want you to look at me. Look at me. You do have it in you.
Greenlee: You were a pretty impressive little pilgrim.
Emma: It was the best play ever. Can we do it again?
Ryan: Hey, Ems, you know that Thanksgiving is about more than just costumes and pageants, though, right?
Emma: Well, kind of.
Ryan: It's about being grateful and appreciating all your friends and family and everybody you love.
Emma: Spike was sad that Uncle Zach didn't make the play.
Ryan: Yeah, we were all very sad about that.
Emma: So I gave Spike my turkey silly band. That's appreciating, right?
Ryan: Yes, it sure is.
Greenlee: That's really great, Emma.
Emma: Thank you for being my daddy.
[Knock on door]
[Knock on door]
Jack: Oh. For you. I'll let you take the coat. I just came by to wish everybody a happy Thanksgiving.
Greenlee: I told Ryan about my little visit today.
Jack: Did you? Yeah, well, that's -- that's partly why I came by.
Ryan: Hey, Ems, why don't you go upstairs and put your doll to bed? It's getting late for the doll.
Ryan: Ok? All right. Ok.
Jack: So they put Hayward on a bus. He's on his way to prison. It's over. He's finally out of our lives.
Greenlee: Well, at least we have something to be thankful for.
Ryan: I'm just gonna run down to the car. I forgot my phone down there. I'll be right back, ok? Yeah, this is Ryan Lavery. I'm just calling to make sure that David Hayward is being transferred. So he's on his way to prison? That's very good news. Yes.
Erica: Honey, I know that there's nothing that I could possibly say that could make this hurt feel any better. But one thing I know is that every woman in our family, every single one, has had to face challenges. And we have. They knock us down, but we get up.
Kendall: I don't know how I'm gonna tell Spike and Ian.
Erica: You will find the words, and we will be there with you. Bianca and I are in your corner no matter what. And your grandmother is with you, too. And she always said to you that you will find your strength.
Kendall: I think it's time to go home. We have to have a family meeting.
Jake: Ok, so we're in this club because they have too many -- too many birds.
Tad: Tons. I told you, every year they do the same thing. They order way too many, so it's no big deal for you and I to amble into the kitchen and liberate one.
Jake: Ok, and that's why you need me. You want to rope me in to help you do that, with taking a bird.
Tad: I roped you in because it's our duty as fathers, as Martins.
Jake: Sure. Tell that to my parole officer.
Tad: Would you stop whining? God, you make me tired. Listen, are we gonna stand here arguing, or are you gonna help me get into the kitchen, put a bird in this coat, and fly the coop? See what I did there? The coop thing --
Jake: Too much bird talk. I get it.
Tad: All right. This is your moment, young Dr. Martin. But are you in, or are you out?
Jake: Gobble, gobble.
Emma: My doll's asleep.
Greenlee: Oh, well, she looked pretty tired.
Emma: Hey, where's Daddy?
Ryan: Hey, Zach. Look, I know you and I had our moments, but what you did for Greenlee and what you did for me -- the only way that I could possibly repay you is to make you this promise right now, that I -- I will be there for your family. I will be there for Kendall and the boys. I know you had a chance to be with Spike a lot this last year or so, and you were there for him and you helped him, and I -- I'll do the same for Ian, ok? I'll make sure whatever they need, they have. I'll make sure that they never -- they never forget you. I owe you that much.
David: That was a very touching speech. Happy Thanksgiving, Ryan. You look surprised.
Ryan: I shouldn't be, though, should I? So who'd you drug this time, Hayward?
David: It's a real crime, you know, how poorly they pay those brave men that transport prisoners. But it should've been you, not me, on that transport bus. Certainly not Greenlee. I should've taken you out when I had the chance. Left you high and dry.
Ryan: You never, ever go near her ever again.
David: What are you gonna do? Huh? You're in no position to be making threats. [Pulls out a gun]
Ryan: This your new plan, is it?
David: Hey, you know me, Ryan. I've got a million of them.
Ryan: It's not gonna work any better than your last one, Hayward.
David: Really? The only mistake I made last time was not killing you when I had the chance. I am a great believer in second chances.
Greenlee: You know what a slowpoke your daddy can be sometimes. He'll be back soon.
Emma: Maybe he went to buy you a present.
Greenlee: A present?
Emma: You know, a thank-you present.
Jack: Greenlee does love presents.
Emma: Ever since she was a little girl?
Jack: Actually, I don't know. You see, I wasn't -- I wasn't around very much when Greenlee was a little girl. I didn't even know she was my daughter for a long time.
Jack: Really. I missed a lot of Thanksgivings with her, so I am particularly grateful that she's in my life.
Greenlee: Me, too.
Krystal: I don't know about anybody else, but I am getting hungry.
Jesse: Hey, what say we spark up the grill and slap some burgers on that puppy?
Damon and kids: Burgers! Burgers!
Marissa: Oh, no, let's wait a little longer.
Amanda: Oh, come on. Tad and Jake said that they'd be here.
Opal: Yeah, but you never know what could happen when those two tricksters go off together.
Opal: What do you got there?
[Cheers and applause]
Krystal: How in the world did you pull that off?
Tad: Faith, baby, faith.
Jesse: You know, back in the day, they used to shoot turkey thieves. Make it right tomorrow.
Kendall: You know how you keep asking me, "Where's Daddy Zach?" And why didn't he come to your show today?
Spike: He said he was going to come.
Kendall: Yes, and you know, I know he would have been so proud of you. How great you did on your part. You did just perfect. You were amazing. Something happened, Spike. There was an accident.
[Kendall and Spike hug as she tells him about Zach]
Erica: You were wonderful with Spike tonight.
Kendall: No child should ever have to go through that. If my kids end up hating Thanksgiving -- Zach wouldn't want that. I don't want them to ever forget about him.
Erica: Of course, they won't. You'll see. They have so many wonderful memories of him. You'll tell them stories. Zach loved them so much, and they loved him, and they will never forget him.
Kendall: Thank you for being here, Mom.
Erica: Of course. It's where we belong tonight. Are you all right? Listen, why don't we open some food? Why don't we have our little Thanksgiving dinner?
Kendall: No. Mom, I'm really -- I'm just -- I'm really, really tired.
Erica: Well, I know it's very comforting for you to hold on tight to this photo of Zach.
Kendall: Yeah, it is.
Erica: Honey, I could stay here tonight if you want me to.
Kendall: No. No, Mom. You really need to go be there for Jackson.
Erica: I don't think that you should be alone tonight.
Kendall: I need to get out of here. I need -- I just need to breathe. There's no air in there.
Erica: All right, then I'll stay with you.
Kendall: Mom --
Erica: All right. I'll leave. I'm so proud of you.
Tad: [Clinks glass] I'd like to make a toast.
Jake: Oh, boy, here we go.
Opal: All righty.
Jake: You can't eat all that.
Tad: Folks, I give you -- me.
Jake: Oh, fabulous. I love this.
Tad: The luckiest man in the world. And I just have to stop and think about it, you know? Last year at this time, I had no idea that I had yet another son, and this year I'm stuck -- with the knucklehead who seems -- seems to have disappeared. Anyway, well, anyway, let's not forget my beloved brother. Huh?
Jake: You got me.
Tad: My lieutenant. My partner in crime during the very "fowl" crime that was committed tonight.
Tad: I know. I should stop. I should stop. But anyway, anyway, I also have, last but not least, I also have the rest of you, you know? My beloved friends and my family. And that's quite a blessing, you know? That's enough for any man. And I think -- actually, I know losing Zach has made me -- made all of us more aware of that, you know, exactly what we have. Each other. Truth is, there's a lot of pain out there, you know. A lot of suffering and a lot of loneliness, and when you're on your own, sometimes it feels like it's too much. When you got your family -- and your friends -- and your kids -- you can get through anything.
Greenlee: Ha. Hey, could you go look for Ryan?
Jack: I'm in the middle of a game. Yes, I'll take a look.
Greenlee: And if he's not down in the garage, could you check the roof, because sometimes he goes up there to get some fresh air.
Jack: Sure. Don't let her cheat. All right?
Ryan: What are you gonna do, Hayward? You gonna kill me and kidnap Greenlee?
David: Both great ideas.
Ryan: Well, you're gonna have to get through me first. [Grunting as he fights for the gun]
Tad: We've all seen a lot of tragedy in the last year. A lot. And sometimes it's easy to lay in bed at night and worry and wonder, how much worse can it get? How much more can I take? But that's really a waste of time, because -- with you, I know for sure -- as long as you got somebody to love and somebody to love you, it gets better. It always gets better if you just hang on. And that's us, you know? That's Pine Valley, right? We struggle, we screw up --
Tad: But we persevere. Together. So what do you say, huh? Let's raise a glass.
Tad: To this wonderful, crazy thing called family and this wonderful, crazy place we call Pine Valley. Never a dull moment. Happy Thanksgiving.
All: Happy Thanksgiving.
[Ryan and David fight on the roof of the condo]
[Gunshot hits David in the back]
Ryan: Hayward. Who's there? Hayward. Who's there? Whoever's there, come out!
[Erica appears holding a gun]
