Kendall: I know it's very short notice, but I can't reschedule my meeting. Never mind. I will figure something out. Thank you.

Madison: Ah, anything I can do?

Kendall: I'm trying to honor my husband's memory by making sure the Miranda Center expansion is on track. But I can't do that if I have a babysitter who won't show up, because she thinks she's too good to wipe runny noses.

Madison: I don't mind wiping them.

Kendall: What?

Madison: If you need someone to watch the boys today, I could do it.

Kendall: Why would you do that?

Madison: Because I know what it's like when everything comes at you, and you can't catch a break.

Kendall: But we barely know each other.

Madison: How well do you know the girl that just quit?

Kendall: Good point.

Madison: I'm not signing on for a full-time gig here, but I'm free today. I love kids. I think it's fair to say that you need something to go right for a change.

Kendall: That would be nice.

Madison: So let me help?

Kendall: I'd like that very much.

Greenlee: It hurts that she doesn't want me around. But more than that, she's just so alone. She's letting you in through a tiny little crack in the door because of Spike, but other than that, she's cutting herself off from everyone who cares about her, which will only make the holidays that much harder.

Ryan: I guess all we can do is just be patient and just wait until she's ready.

Greenlee: That could take a while.

Ryan: Hey, it's gonna happen. Ok? I know that deep down inside she misses us as much as we miss her.

Greenlee: I feel guilty saying this.

Ryan: What?

Greenlee: I've never been more grateful to have you in my life.

Ryan: I feel the same way.

Amanda: Ohh! All right, mister. Tell me what's going on. You've been wound up since we left the hospital. What is it?

Jake: Oh. Um, I don't know if I'm that -- I found out something today that I thought was true, and it turns out it's not.

Amanda: Why do I feel like this "something" involves Cara?

Cara: I already filled out the necessary paperwork. Then what happened? How long is that gonna take? What? That's insane! Hello? Great!

Griffin: Has anyone told you you have a wicked phone-side manner?

Cara: It's gonna be more fun when I get to yell at them in person.

Griffin: Don't get arrested. What did they say about your paperwork?

Cara: There's some glitch in the system or something. I can't get on the plane until this thing is cleared up.

Griffin: Why doesn't D.W.B. try to intervene?

Cara: They tried. It's out of their jurisdiction.

Griffin: Did they at least tell you how long you'd be stuck here?

Cara: Yeah. In their words, "We can't be too sure."

Griffin: A week? A month? Year?

Cara: I know what I'm gonna do. I'm just gonna drive to New York.

Griffin: No. Until this thing is fixed, you're gonna stay here with me.

Cara: Come on. You know that's the last thing that I need to do.

Jake: Ok -- ahem -- here goes. All this time I thought Griffin broke up my marriage to Cara.

Amanda: But he did. You saw her leave with him.

Jake: That's what she led me to believe.

Amanda: I don't understand.

Jake: Tad did some digging around, and it turns out that Griffin and Cara were never lovers at all.

Amanda: What are they?

Jake: They're brother and sister.

Amanda: Griffin is Cara's brother?

Jake: That's right.

Amanda: Wow. I guess she didn't come here to reunite with him.

Jake: And there's something else you should know. Cara pitched me really, really hard to join Doctors Without Borders again, but I let her know that there's nothing in this world that would take me away from my life here.

Amanda: So she's gone?

Jake: She didn't get what she came for. Probably on a plane right now.

Griffin: You sure you want to spend Christmas in some random city alone in a hotel room?

Cara: I am used to being alone. You know this.

Griffin: You don't have to be if you're with me.

Cara: You really want me to stay here, even with Jake around?

Griffin: I don't care about Jake. I care about spending Christmas with my little sister.

Cara: You want to make sure that I'm safe, huh, following all the rules?

Griffin: Are you?

Cara: I would love to be here with you. I -- I can't stay here.

Griffin: Avoid him.

Cara: His family is, like, this entire town, you know? And I can't really imagine it being an actual happy Christmas running into Jake and his model-gorgeous wife every time I turn the corner.

Griffin: You sure there's not a part of you that's happy that the State Department dropped the ball?

Cara: Yeah, because I came here to get back together with Jake, right? Maybe I did. Ok? Maybe I came here, and I just thought if I showed up, and he would be so miserable and so bored and so desperate to get out of here that we'd just pick up right where we left off. But I know now there's not a snowball's chance in hell that's gonna happen.

Griffin: I didn't mean to rub it in.

Cara: No. Come on, now. Aren't you glad he's not available?

Griffin: He's not good for you. Christmas with your brother is.

Cara: Wait. What? Where you going?

Griffin: I got to go see a patient.

Cara: Wait. No. Can I tag along?

Griffin: You sure?

Cara: Yeah, I'm sure. If I'm stuck here, I should do something to fill the hours, right?

Griffin: Let's go.

Cara: Ok.

Bianca: I was wondering when you would stop by.

Ryan: You were?

Bianca: Yeah. I figured there'd be some loose ends to tie up after I stepped down from the European office.

Ryan: Ah. No, actually. Cambias business can wait a while. I'm here for some help on something a little bit more personal.

Bianca: How personal?

Ryan: Greenlee and Kendall.

Bianca: Did you say "personal" or "impossible"?

Ryan: They need each other, Bianca.

Bianca: If Kendall and Greenlee are gonna work this out, it won't be because we made it happen. They have to do it themselves.

Madison: Finish your milk and I promise I'll build you a tepee. Oh. Back so soon? How was the meeting?

Kendall: Good. Are the boys ok?

Madison: Yeah. We had so much fun, I actually forgot to put Ian down for a nap.

Kendall: As long as they're enjoying themselves these days, I don't mind bending the rules a little bit.

Madison: I know they've been having a hard time recently. They're ok. I can tell.

Kendall: Thanks for watching over them. Hopefully, someday I'll be able to return the favor when you have kids.

Madison: Someday.

[Phone rings]

Madison: I should take this. Sorry. Randi, hi.

Randi: Where are you?

Madison: Were we supposed to meet?

Randi: No, but you were supposed to be here a half-hour ago just like the rest of us.

Madison: For what?

Randi: Greenlee's big full-scale review. Wait. Are you avoiding her because you're afraid she's gonna find out you're pregnant?

Madison: I quit Fusion.

Randi: You what?

Madison: It's the best thing, trust me.

Randi: So you are avoiding her?

Madison: Just trying to figure things out.

Randi: Look, I got to go. Let's try and connect later.

Kendall: Everything ok?

Madison: Randi was just worried that I would catch Greenlee's wrath if I didn't show up for her big full-scale-review meeting.

Kendall: You'd think Greenlee would worry about catching my wrath.

Madison: What for?

Kendall: For not including me in the meeting.

Greenlee: Does everyone have their prospectus?

Randi: They're reviewing them now.

Greenlee: Ok. We should get started. Are you up for this?

Randi: Yeah. Of course. Why?

Greenlee: It just seemed like you were dealing with something earlier. Something personal?

Randi: I was just calling Frankie. Busy day at the hospital. Is Kendall coming?

Greenlee: No. She has enough to deal with at home. Bianca's focusing on the Miranda Center. I'll be making all the business decisions until further notice.

Kendall: Apparently everyone knew about this meeting but me.

Madison: It's probably not a big deal.

Kendall: You just said it was a full-scale review. That's a very big deal, one that Greenlee thinks she can handle all by herself.

Madison: I'm sure it was an oversight.

Kendall: Greenlee doesn't do oversights.

Madison: You're not going over there.

Kendall: You want to bet?

Madison: What about the boys?

Kendall: You know what? Would you mind staying just for a little bit longer?

Madison: I don't know.

Kendall: It won't be long, just about a half-hour or so. The boys have a play date anyway with the Conways. Thank you.

Greenlee: First of all, I'd like to take a moment to thank Randi Hubbard for arranging this meeting. Not only is she keeping things in order behind the scenes, but she continues to shine as the face of Fusion in billboards and magazines all across the country. Yes. Thank you. I've kept this group small today and consisting mostly of department heads, because I'm leaving it up to you to speak to your respective teams. Explain to them that while I've been distracted recently by obvious circumstances, that all changes as of today. From now on, I'm going to be as hands-on as I was when I started this company. In other words, I'm back, I'm in charge, and I'm ready to make some major changes.

Kendall: Is getting rid of me one of those changes?

Jake: You know what would be a blast? Breakfast for dinner. Huh? Would that be fun? What?

Amanda: I just -- I am glad that Cara is on the next flight out of town. But I don't think that that means that we should pretend that you didn't just find out what you just found out.

Jake: It doesn't matter anymore.

Amanda: How could it not? You spent years thinking that the woman that you loved, that you were married to, dumped you for another guy. And now after all this time, you're finding out that's not the case.

Jake: Babe, whether it's another guy or it's whatever her reason is, it doesn't matter. She walked away from the relationship.

Amanda: And you don't want to know why?

Jake: I know why. She said that she married too young. She said that she wanted out of the marriage, and she called her big brother because she wanted to get away from the whole big mess. And she did it the way that she did it, because she didn't want me chasing after her.

Amanda: And would you have? If she had told you the whole truth, would you have just let her go?

Jake: Can we just drop it? Because I'd love to have a beautiful dinner with my wife, and I got to get back to the hospital.

Amanda: I just don't want you to bury this.

Jake: There's nothing to bury. Baby, it's gonna be Christmas, right? Christmas. I would like it to be magical and beautiful. I'd like to make it that way for my wife and son. Is that all right?

Amanda: You already have.

Angie: I hope you brought something to keep you entertained.

Opal: Oh. Well, I always do.

Tad: Nice.

Angie: It could be a long wait. Too many patients and not enough doctors -- tough combo this time of year.

Opal: Ohh, Doctor!

Griffin: How are you?

Opal: Oh, gosh. All the better for seeing you!

Griffin: I hope you're ok. You're just here for a follow-up, right?

Opal: Oh, yeah. After the magic you worked on me, are you kidding? I wouldn't be here for anything else! [Giggling]

Tad: Doc. Aren't you supposed to be on a plane somewhere?

Cara: Don't want to be here any more than you want me here.

Angie: I assume Dr. Castillo isn't alone?

Griffin: Oh. I should've introduced you. Dr. Angela Hubbard, this is Dr. Cara Castillo.

Angie: Nice to meet you.

Opal: Are they married?

Tad: No, ma. Actually, it turns out Griffin is Cara's brother. It's kind of a long story.

Cara: Don't hold the lie against my brother. He was doing me a favor.

Tad: He certainly didn't do Jake any favors.

Angie: Jake's moved on with a beautiful wife and child and a happy life. I think we should all follow suit.

Tad: True enough, Angela.

Angie: Now that we're done talking about the past, I have a hospital to run. And I need to confer with the Castillo sibling who offered to pitch in around here.

Griffin: At your service, Chief.

Angie: Good.

Cara: So, looks better than the last time I saw you.

Tad: Yeah. It's doing great.

Opal: Yeah. Some wounds heal faster than others.

Tad: Actually, Ma, there's a little something else you missed. Cara was the one who stitched me up.

Cara: I promised minimal scarring.

Opal: Did I miss out on the part where we forgive her for what she did to Jake?

Tad: It's ok, Ma.

Cara: So you're here to have it redressed?

Tad: No, no, nothing like that. My mother had a little heart scare not too long ago, so we just came in today to do a follow-up.

Cara: Griff was your doctor?

Opal: Yeah. Angels of mercy clearly don't run in the family.

Cara: Is that the medication you were prescribed or --

Opal: It was. I need a refill.

Cara: Do you mind if I check it out?

Tad: Ma, please try to relax. Whatever else she is, Cara is a damn fine doctor. I'm sure she's not trying to poison you.

Cara: Thank you. Griff prescribed you this?

Opal: Dr. Traister, my regular MD, did. Why? Why do you ask? What's wrong?

Cara: Nothing's wrong. It's just I'm sure you're suffering from some annoying side effects -- headache, dizziness, nausea, upset stomach?

Opal: As matter of fact, yeah.

Cara: That's typical with a calcium channel blocker.

Tad: Then is there some kind of alternative?

Cara: Yeah. Actually, there is, especially for someone as young as your mother. I would try a beta blocker. It won't keep her up at nights or ready to crash during the day. You know what? Ah. Here. Ask Dr. Traister about this. I'm sure he'll agree it's a much better fit for you.

Opal: Ok. Thanks.

Cara: I'll send you the bill. Whew! You're back. Thank goodness.

Griffin: Yeah, not for long. This place is in the weeds. You gonna be ok for a few minutes?

Cara: Yeah. I'll be fine.

Griffin: Good.

Angie: Dr. Traister's doubled up, just like every other doctor in this hospital.

Cara: You're short on staff?

Angie: Temporarily, yes.

Cara: Tell me that's not a problem limited to just this hospital.

Angie: What do you mean?

Cara: I'm actually gonna be in town for a while, so I was kind of hoping that I could do something worthwhile to fill my time.

Angie: You're looking for a job?

Cara: I need to work, yeah. Anywhere but here.

Ryan: Kendall -- well, she requested that I leave Greenlee at home on Christmas.

Bianca: Did you agree?

Ryan: I didn't have much choice. She also said she's only tolerating my presence because of Spike.

Bianca: Ouch.

Ryan: So she's got this wall up, and she's determined not to let anybody break it down, you know?

Bianca: Not even her sister. It's different than it is with you, but she's still holding me at arm's length.

Ryan: She won't even let Greenlee in the same room as her.

Bianca: I haven't always thought Greenlee was such a great friend to my sister, but Kendall needs to forgive her and you -- and even David.

Ryan: Greenlee mentioned that she saw Hayward's hand move when she was in the room with him.

Bianca: He's coming to?

Ryan: I don't know.

Bianca: I guess it could be good for Mom's case.

Ryan: And bad for everything else. Hell of a holiday season, isn't it?

Bianca: Have I depressed you enough that you're leaving?

Ryan: No. Never. It's just that Greenlee is having a meeting for some of the department heads over at Fusion, and I said that I'd stop by for a little while.

Bianca: It'll get better.

Ryan: Yes. I know.

Bianca: If I've seen anything, it's that Kendall and Greenlee have a bond no one can break -- not even them.

Greenlee: No one's talking about changing your role in this company.

Kendall: You took away whatever role I had when you excluded me from this meeting.

Greenlee: You just lost your husband. The last thing you needed was to think about the next lipstick campaign.

Kendall: Who are you to tell me what I should and shouldn't think about?

Greenlee: I was just trying --

Kendall: Is my name still on the door or did you get rid of that, too?

Greenlee: If you want to sit in on the meeting, be my guest.

Kendall: Ok. Now I'm a guest?

Greenlee: I can't win. You would've been mad at me even if I had included you.

Kendall: Don't you turn this around on me.

Greenlee: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Ok? I did not mean to make things worse for you.

Kendall: I love it. You're apologizing for my suffering while you're throwing me out of my own company.

Greenlee: I did not.

Kendall: I shouldn't be surprised. My God, you insist that David is to blame for what happened to Zach, but the whole time you hold a bedside vigil for the monster.

Greenlee: That's not fair.

Kendall: Bottom line, you don't want me here. So don't pretend like you're doing it because you care about me.

Greenlee: You're right! I don't want you here. There! I said it! Ever since the accident, you haven't been yourself, and you know what? I don't know when you're gonna be normal again. Meanwhile, we have a multimillion-dollar company to run, and we can't have decisions being made by someone who's --

Kendall: Who's what?

Greenlee: This is the last thing that either one of us needs right now.

Kendall: Can't have decisions made by someone who's unbalanced? Is that it?

Greenlee: Kendall, please. Let's just --

Kendall: What? Be friends?

Greenlee: You don't want to do this here.

Kendall: Don't tell me what I want to do. Do you think because I'm grieving, you can swoop in and take advantage?

Greenlee: You're out of line.

Kendall: I'm out of line?

Greenlee: Get it together, will you?

Madison: What is wrong with you? The last thing Kendall needs right now is to be attacked by you.

Greenlee: This is so not your business.

Madison: Are you ok?

Kendall: Where are the boys?

Madison: They're at the Conways', remember? I thought you might need some backup.

Kendall: I should never have come here, because I've become a major inconvenience to Greenlee.

Greenlee: I never said it.

Kendall: You thought it, and you still do. But I'm not useless, and I'll show you.

Madison: What did you say to her?

Greenlee: It's none of your business.

Madison: Right. I forgot. No one can question the great and powerful Greenlee Smythe.

Greenlee: You don't belong here.

Madison: Is that what you said to Kendall?

Greenlee: When the hell are you gonna get out of my life?!

Angie: If there's any place in town that needs doctors more than any other, it's this hospital.

Cara: I just don't think working here would be a very good idea.

Angie: I was stating a fact. I wasn't offering you a job. Jake is not just a colleague, he's one of my dearest friends. And I need doctors who are focused, who can be here around the clock if they have to.

Jake: You're still whining about being understaffed? Can't you pull somebody off -- you didn't leave.

Cara: I wanted to. Trust me.

Jake: Well, I don't.

Griffin: Sorry. You look stressed out.

Kendall: Thank you.

Griffin: Sorry.

Kendall: Actually, I came here looking for you.

Griffin: You found me. What do you need?

Kendall: A change between us, starting today.

Randi: I think we all just need to calm down.

Madison: You would like me to just disappear, wouldn't you? That would be a lot more convenient.

Randi: You don't want to do this.

Greenlee: Don't be so dramatic. You'll only make things harder for yourself.

Madison: You think so?

Greenlee: You quit Fusion so you didn't have to be around me. You've supposedly moved on from Ryan, but yet here you are sticking your nose in, acting like you belong when you don't.

Madison: You're unbelievable.

Ryan: Hey. Are you ok?

Madison: Yeah. I'm fine.

Ryan: What was that all about?

Kendall: You're doing everything Zach asked you to, right?

Griffin: I'm trying.

Kendall: You're not working on the global expansion of the Miranda Center. You're helping Bianca rehabilitate the Pine Valley center.

Griffin: Do you have a problem with that?

Kendall: Yes -- I mean no. Not with you.

Griffin: Ok.

Kendall: I want in more than I am.

Griffin: We're fine.

Kendall: No, it's not enough, not for me. I want to honor Zach's memory by being a part of it, by managing the details. I want my husband to know that what was important to him is just as important to me.

Griffin: No offense, but we're trying to help large groups of people.

Kendall: Yes. I want to help. People think I can't even get out of bed in the morning without Zach, but that's not true. I am more than capable.

Griffin: Who are these people?

Kendall: It doesn't matter. The point is I'm ready. So that means from now on, you and I, we're gonna be joined at the hip.

Griffin: Oh, I don't think so.

Kendall: You don't think I can do it either, do you?

Griffin: No, what I know is, is that this is bigger than you trying to just prove yourself to "other people."

Kendall: Excuse me?

Griffin: You suffered a loss. I've seen what it's done to you. Don't forget that I walked in on you about to off Dr. Hayward.

Kendall: That has nothing to do with it.

Griffin: It has everything to do with it. Zach had a vision, and I have a mission. Lives are at stake. Look, let me -- I'll drive you home. Ok?

Kendall: No. Don't do that.

Griffin: Don't do what?

Kendall: I am Zach's wife. What was his is mine. And as of right now, as far as the Miranda Center's global expansion goes, you answer to me.

Ryan: So do I need to be concerned?

Greenlee: It was just the cherry on top of a nightmare day.

Ryan: Ok, Greenlee --

Greenlee: Madison is upset.

Ryan: I can see that. Why?

Greenlee: Somehow Kendall got wind of the meeting, realized she wasn't invited, came down here, and flipped out. For some reason, I lost my cool. Madison came in and came to Kendall's defense.

Madison: Don't worry. It won't happen again.

Ryan: Hey, hang on. Ok?

Madison: Haven't you heard? I'm not welcome here anymore.

Greenlee: I was just trying to spare Kendall one last thing to worry about. That's why I didn't invite her, not that she believed me. Everything I said only made things worse.

Ryan: I'm sorry.

Greenlee: Me, too. It seems like every time I see her, she's slipping further and further away. I think it's best if we postpone the meeting.

Randi: Good idea.

Greenlee: Could you talk to all the department heads to see what the next good day is for all of them?

Randi: I'm on it.

Ryan: Hey. I'm gonna pull the car around in front. Ok? We'll head home, and we'll try and make sense of all this. Ok?

Randi: How does Tuesday sound?

Greenlee: That's perfect. Hopefully, we won't be interrupted by disgruntled former employees.

Woman: Poor Madison.

Greenlee: Seriously? After the way that girl ripped into me, I don't want to hear how someone feels bad for her.

Woman: You might, too, if you've been in the bathroom just now. I could hear her throwing up in the next stall.

Greenlee: Throwing up?

Woman: I guess all the tension must've really gotten to her.

Cara: I don't blame you for not believing me, but it's the truth. There's all this red tape and, basically, I can't get on the plane.

Jake: How long will that be?

Cara: They don't have an answer.

Amanda: You're not gonna stay here, are you?

Cara: I'm not sure. You're welcome to call and verify if you don't believe me.

Jake: That's not necessary.

Cara: Sorry if this makes things awkward.

Jake: Hey, it's a free country. You can live wherever you want. I just was curious why you came in here, and you're talking about a shortage of doctors at this particular hospital.

Angie: I was talking about it. Cara said she wanted work outside this hospital.

Jake: Hmm. Even though it would be better for the hospital if she was here?

Cara: I was actually tagging along with my brother. I wasn't looking for a job here.

Angie: And I didn't offer her one.

Jake: Hey, it's -- everybody's bending over backwards here to make sure I'm not -- that I'm not uncomfortable, and the fact is that's what's making me uncomfortable. We have a shortage of doctors, so it's crazy if we're acting as if it wouldn't be better for the hospital if -- just give her a job if you want to give her a job.

Angie: Jake, you don't have to do this.

Jake: What am I doing? It's not up to me. It's not my call who gets hired or doesn't get hired around here.

Angie: All right. What about you?

Cara: Uh, if Jake doesn't have a problem with me being here, I would be stupid to turn down work.

Jake: I don't care what you do. It's not my problem.

Angie: The minute it becomes one for either of you, I want to know about it. I think that we need to get down to HR before they break for lunch.

Cara: Yes. Please tell me the room number.

Tad: Sometimes you really surprise me.

Jake: Sometimes I surprise myself.

Griffin: You two look like you're on a mission.

Cara: We're on our way to HR, actually.

Angie: Your sister has agreed to join the team -- temporarily.

Griffin: Hold it right there.

Kendall: I was wondering where you were.

Madison: I hope you don't mind. I let myself back in with the key you gave me.

Kendall: Of course. No problem.

Madison: How are you?

Kendall: I'm better now.

Madison: You were pretty angry when you left ConFusion.

Kendall: Greenlee -- she gets under my skin, you know? She got me so upset that -- she thinks I can't handle myself. I don't need Greenlee and Fusion to know that I'm back on track, right?

Madison: Absolutely.

Kendall: Thank you for coming to my defense.

Madison: No problem. The boys are back from the Conways'. They're watching TV in the den.

Kendall: Wait. You're out of a job, right?

Madison: Yes. But --

Kendall: And the holidays are coming up, and I'm gonna be really busy. And you love spending time with the boys --

Madison: They're great.

Kendall: So what do you think about hanging out with them more on a permanent basis?

Madison: Are you offering me a job?

Kendall: I guess I am.

Madison: I don't think I could do that.

Kendall: Why not? Oh, my God. What am I thinking? I just asked you to take care of Ryan's child. That's probably the last thing you want to do.

Ryan: This should cheer you up.

Greenlee: What is it?

Ryan: Read it.

Greenlee: "Social Services."

Ryan: Uh-huh.

Greenlee: It finally happened. They found an advocate for David.

Ryan: That's got to be a relief, huh?

Greenlee: I was starting to think it would never happen.

Ryan: But it did. Embrace it.

Greenlee: All that waiting, and now I'm finally and officially free of him.

Ryan: How does it feel?

Greenlee: I want to go see him. I want to say good-bye.

Griffin: Dr. Hubbard, may I have a moment with my sister, please?

Angie: Meet me down in HR if you're still taking the job.

Cara: I am.

Griffin: You know this is a bad idea.

Cara: You're right. It is. But only if I was someone who didn't know how to take care of herself, and lucky for me, I'm not.

Griffin: There are other ways to torture yourself.

Cara: I know, but this way seems like so much fun. Yeah. Ok, I'm kidding. Hey, relax. It's gonna be fine. We're gonna work different shifts.

Griffin: So you got it all figured out, huh?

Cara: Yes, I do, actually. This hospital gets a fine doctor, you get to hang out with your sister a little while longer, and I don't have to sit in some hotel room waiting for the phone to ring.

Griffin: I liked it better when I could boss you around.

Jake: Why do I feel like everybody's looking at me?

Amanda: Are they?

Jake: Maybe it's because I just gave Angie permission to hire my ex-wife, and I didn't even ask for the permission of my current wife. I just called you "my current wife." I'm sorry. That's horrible. Can you stop me, please? Any time.

Tad: I think when you find yourself in a hole, the first thing you should do is stop digging.

Opal: I wasn't gonna say anything.

Amanda: You know what? It's like you said. It is a free country and Cara can work wherever she wants.

Opal: She can.

Tad: She is. And we're all ok with it, right?

Jake: Are we ok with it?

Amanda: You remember our vows? I love you, I trust you, and every day I'm struck by how much I admire you.

Jake: Thank you. Thank you.

Amanda: I'll see you later at home. Ok?

Jake: Absolutely.

Amanda: I guess congratulations are in order.

Cara: Oh. Wow. I hope this doesn't make things too uncomfortable for you.

Amanda: Everyone's so worried about how I'm taking this, but I'm fine. There's not a lot I can do even if I wasn't, right?

Cara: I guess.

Amanda: Which is why we should make the most of the time that you are here.

Cara: "We"?

Amanda: Well, we didn't get off on the right note, really, at the beginning, and it doesn't mean that we can't turn things around.

Cara: And how do we do that?

Amanda: What would you say to a girls' lunch?

Cara: Seriously?

Amanda: Why not? We have a lot in common. I could get your number from Griffin and call you later to firm things up.

Cara: Ok.

Amanda: Great. I'll see you then.

Cara: Ok. See you then.

Tad: Ok. Spill it.

Jake: What?

Tad: The real reason you practically insisted that Angie hire Cara.

Jake: No. I just thought it would be better of Cara were here.

Tad: As opposed to?

Jake: Someplace less safe.

Tad: Huh. Now you make it sound like you want to keep an eye on her. In which case, you're very lucky you've got an understanding wife -- and a smoking-hot ex-wife.

Griffin: You could've said no. Angie never would've ok'd the hire.

Jake: Really? What's the matter? When it comes to your sister, I've got a hidden agenda?

Griffin: Do you?

Jake: Listen, pal, I was a very happy man before your sister showed up.

Griffin: Before you met her. How you gonna be when you're working alongside her?

Jake: You don't have to worry about me.

Madison: I appreciate the job offer. It's just things with Ryan are complicated. My fault. I just think that for a while I should keep some distance.

Kendall: Ok. What are you gonna do for money?

Madison: I was actually thinking I might take a trip, clear my head, and figure that out.

Kendall: Where you gonna go? For how long?

Madison: Someplace far from Pine Valley -- indefinitely.

Greenlee: I should be happy about this.

Ryan: But you don't trust it?

Greenlee: No, I don't.

Ryan: Ok. There's got to be some way to figure out who his new advocate is.

Greenlee: Maybe it's on his chart.

Liza: Excuse me. What are you doing?

Greenlee: Excuse me?

Liza: You've got no rights to access to that chart or the patient.

Greenlee: Deciding who does see or doesn't see David is up to his new advocate.

Liza: Well, as of this morning, the new advocate is me.
