Kendall: I'm going crazy in here. I miss my boys so much. I miss my house. I miss my refrigerator. I miss my food, ok? I don't know what the hell this is. Ten bucks to tell me what this is. What is this?
Ryan: I cannot, which is why we are going with something new, different.
Kendall: What is this, you guys? Golden Chopsticks!
Greenlee: You remembered?
Kendall: Of course, I remembered! I love the duck! I go crazy for the duck! And remember the soup -- the dumplings?
Greenlee: Yes. We got them and just about everything else on the menu.
Ryan: You see? I should've gone with the sushi. She's upset.
Kendall: No, no. It's perfect. I love you guys.
Madison: Tell my father I'm not leaving.
Guard: He's not coming out.
Madison: He has to. I need to see him.
Guard: Sorry, ma'am. You wasted a trip.
Madison: [Cries] Ugh!
Scott: Here you go. [Hands her a tissue]
Madison: Scott Chandler?
Scott: Madison, right?
Madison: Yeah. I didn't expect to see you here.
Scott: I didn't expect to see you here either. But I'm glad to see you're not wearing one of these. Can I help?
Colby: I want you to leave.
Asher: Too bad. I live here, too.
Colby: Asher, I really don't need this right now, ok? Why I even kissed you, I actually have no idea.
Asher: I do.
Colby: I don't want you, Asher. I want Damon. I am in love with Damon. All right?
Damon: I don't want to leave town.
Liza: Ok. Then don't.
Damon: Like I have a choice, Liza. Damn it. [Cries]
Liza: Come here. [Hugs Damon] Come here. Come here. God, I wish this could be different. I wish there was something I could do.
[Liza and Damon kiss, then start to tear their clothes off]
Scott: Do you want to sit down?
Madison: No, thanks. I'm sorry to lose it like this. I just really needed to see my father.
Scott: James Beardsley, hmm?
Madison: You know him?
Scott: I've seen him around, heard the way he talks to people, like they're worthless.
Madison: That's him.
Scott: No offense, but he seems like a real bastard.
Madison: None taken.
Scott: So I'm gonna guess that you and Daddy Dearest don't get along too well.
Madison: I'm going to guess that you don't know why he's in here.
Madison: He used to beat me up.
Scott: Oh. I'm sorry. I didn't know that.
Madison: Anyway, I'm taking up your time, so I'm gonna go.
Scott: No. Are you kidding me? The only thing on my schedule today is to count the bars, so please take up my time.
Madison: For me to even come here, my father had to know that it was important. It could've been life or death, and he doesn't even care. What was I thinking?
Scott: The guy's a jerk.
Madison: I hate him, but I'm desperate. I need money, and I was hoping that I could convince him to give me whatever's left in my trust fund, but obviously that's not going to happen.
Scott: Maybe he just wants to make you wait.
Madison: He always has to have control, even from behind bars.
Scott: Sounds like some of my family. You fall in line or the Chandlers -- they freeze you out.
Madison: You somehow learn how to play the game --
Scott: And start hating yourself, start doing things that you never thought you'd ever do.
Madison: Tell me about it.
Scott: And that's the way to work it, you know? They make you think that you need them, that you could never survive without them. And don't even think about breaking away, because that would be like cutting off a limb.
Madison: I want to break away, more than anything, but it's not just about me anymore.
Kendall: Would you quit hogging the mu shu, please?
Greenlee: Eat the duck.
Kendall: I ate the duck. Now I want the mu shu.
Ryan: Ok, guys, settle down. There's a lot to go around. Hey, I saw that.
Kendall: Mm-hmm. Greenlee and I go at it --
Greenlee: And you play peacemaker.
Ryan: Yeah, I want everybody to be happy. Is that so wrong?
Kendall: No. It's just so you.
Greenlee: This is nice.
Ryan: Yeah -- picking on the guy. A blast.
Kendall: No. Greenlee's right. Just the three of us -- it's been a long time since we've hung out. It's strange, different, but good.
Greenlee: So which one of us is gonna get locked in a tower?
Ryan: I was sort of hoping for some underwater wrestling.
Greenlee: We can laugh about it. That means something.
Kendall: It means everything.
Greenlee: A toast.
Greenlee: To friends -- those we found again, those we lost. We may not be together, but we'll always be connected forever.
Ryan: Hey, I don't mean to interrupt the party here, but Kendall and I need to kind of deal with something.
Kendall: Sounds serious.
Ryan: Zach's lawyer called.
Ryan: You need to deal with Zach's will.
Greenlee: Ryan --
Ryan: I know that it's not easy, but it's not something to put off forever. You really need to settle this. You need to settle it for yourself and for the boys.
Asher: Chill, ok? I'm not trying to steal you away from Damon.
Colby: Good, because you're not going to.
Asher: The only reason I'm here is because J.R. has asked me to stay.
Asher: He's going out of town, so he wants us to work together on a project for Chandler.
Colby: I really don't care about your job with Chandler. I just want you gone. That's all.
Asher: Relax. You're making a big deal over nothing.
Colby: "Nothing?" Really? My boyfriend -- he walked in on us kissing! Do you have any idea what that's done to him, how upset he is? And now I have to fix things.
Asher: Can we just be honest for once?
Colby: Asher, please get away from me.
Asher: Can we just put the truth out there? I may have kissed you, but both times you wanted it.
[After they've had sex, Damon pulls away from Liza]
Madison: I'm in a tough spot. I can dig out of it. I just need cash.
Scott: Aren't you and Ryan Lavery --
Madison: We were.
Scott: Oh. Sorry. I guess I'm out of the loop.
Madison: Don't worry about it.
Scott: I wish I could help you out, but I'm strapped myself. No, wait a minute. I've got $3.00, made it folding laundry. You can have it if you'd like it.
Madison: Thanks, but we barely know each other. Thanks for listening. You're pretty good at it.
Scott: Anytime. You know where to find me.
Scott (to the guard): What?
Kendall: It's not like I'll be surprised. I know what's in Zach's will. I have to do this.
Greenlee: I know this is important, but can't it wait until she gets home?
Ryan: The lawyer just wants her to take a look and see if you have any questions or concerns, and then you can actually execute when you're ready.
Kendall: "Execute." Can't they come up with a better legal name than that? I never thought I'd see this again. I thought it would stay locked up until we're old and gray. There must be so much I have to do.
Ryan: I don't mean to push.
Kendall: You guys, I'm fine, ok? Seeing my husband's will and holding it -- it's hard. But you know what? I'll be up, back on my feet in a few days, and then you won't have to coddle me anymore.
Greenlee: Listen, Kendall, we love you. We are gonna coddle you. We are gonna help with the boys. We're gonna pick up gourmet food for you. We are going to support you and comfort and pamper you however we can, and there's nothing you can do to stop us.
Kendall: Well, all right, then. Ok. Then you are my personal servants. I guess I should read this. Can you guys stay?
Ryan: As long as you need us to.
Kendall: This isn't everything Zach left behind. Not even close. His real legacy is how much he loved us.
Asher: You gonna blame me for everything? Fine. I don't care.
Colby: That is such a cop-out.
Colby: "Whatever. I'm Asher, and nothing matters to me. I don't care about anything."
Asher: I never said that.
Colby: You didn't have to, Asher. You see something -- my world is falling apart, because of something we did. And you're standing there shrugging it off like it means nothing to you.
Asher: What should I do? Pick a fight? Break something? Completely flip out and lose it? Would that make you feel better?
Colby: As soon as things get hard, this is exactly what you do!
Asher: I'm not the one who can't deal with what's going on here.
Colby: Asher, I felt bad for you. I felt bad about your dad. I told you real things about my family. What about you? What about your side of the conversations? Were they ever real?
Asher: Come on. What do you think?
Colby: I think that you told me whatever you thought I wanted to hear so I would confide in you and trust you. And then look -- you moved in here. But you had this little plan to come into my house and ruin my life for fun. Maybe things don't matter to you, but Damon -- he means everything to me and he is so hurt right now, and I am dying inside. And you are standing there blowing it off like it's all a big "whatever" to you!
Asher: That is not true, ok? I am so sorry that I hurt you. Believe me, that's the last thing that I would ever want to do.
Colby: Whatever, Asher.
Liza: I'm sorry. Damon, I'm so sorry.
[Damon gets up, puts on his clothes, and leaves, slamming the door]
Liza: Oh, God.
Kendall: It's pretty straightforward.
Ryan: I'll tell Zach's lawyer that you'll call him when you're ready.
Kendall: Thank you. It's time I face this. I'm gonna have a cookie.
Kendall: Hmm. "You will always be surrounded by friends."
Kendall: What's that say?
Ryan: "Help, I'm trapped in a Chinese bakery."
Greenlee: Oh. Dessert. I left it in the car, so I'll be right back.
Ryan: All right. That's weird.
Kendall: It is weird. Hmm. So? How are things going?
Ryan: Good. Things are good. I hear you've been getting pretty close with Madison.
Kendall: Yeah. I like her.
Ryan: She's a great person. Incredible person. The way I handled that breakup -- I mean --
Kendall: Ryan, you're meant to be with Greenlee. Madison knows that.
Greenlee: Madison. Hey.
Madison: You here to see Kendall?
Greenlee: I came with Ryan.
Madison: World's worst timing -- that's me. I will come back later.
Greenlee: I've been leaving you messages. Didn't you get them?
Madison: I got them.
Greenlee: Then why haven't you called me back?
Madison: Honestly, because I have nothing to say.
Greenlee: You're going to start showing at some point. Ryan is going to know you're pregnant. How do you plan on handling that?
Madison: I don't know yet.
Greenlee: You need to figure it out.
Madison: I'm trying.
Greenlee: How, Madison? How are you trying?
Madison: I think about it all the time, ok?
Greenlee: That's it?
Madison: What else do you want me to do? I talk to Frankie. I talk to Randi. I talk to Scott. I talk to myself.
Greenlee: Scott who?
Madison: Scott Chandler.
[Knock on door]
Colby: Why didn't you open the door?
Liza: I was in the shower. I just got out.
Colby: Have you seen Damon, Mom? I've been trying to call him, but he's not picking up any of my calls. I did something so horrible. Mom, are you even listening to me?
Liza: Uh-huh. Yes. Yes, I am.
Colby: Have you heard from Damon? Did he come here?
Tad: Damon? Are you crazy? You're gonna freeze --
Damon: I don't want that!
Tad: I don't care.
Damon: I don't want it!
Tad: Hey. Hey, come on. Did something happen? Whatever it is can't be that bad.
Kendall: Madison will be ok. In some ways, what we're going through is similar.
Ryan: Kendall, you lost your husband.
Kendall: I said "similar," not "the same." Madison and I are both dealing with a loss, trying to figure out how to start over. Trust that she'll be able to move on. You have to give her the space that she needs. She'll be able to do it. So will I. We'll help each other.
Ryan: I'm glad to hear that. Zach's lawyer is waiting to hear from me.
Kendall: You can tell him as soon as I'm out of here, I will call him, and we'll set up a meeting.
Ryan: Are you sure?
Kendall: It's time I stepped up.
Ryan: Then I guess I better help that poor guy get out of the Chinese bakery.
Kendall: Yeah. Ryan, thank you so much for everything.
Ryan: You got to stop saying that.
Kendall: No, I mean it, though. You've helped me so much.
Ryan: You're family, Kendall. I'm never gonna stop helping you.
Greenlee: Since when are you friends with Scott Chandler?
Madison: I'm not. I just ran into him today.
Greenlee: Just strolling through a prison exercise yard?
Madison: My father's in prison, too. I went to visit him. Big mistake. I won't be doing that again.
Greenlee: So what did you say to Scott?
Madison: I didn't put him on my baby registry, if that's what you're asking.
Greenlee: You have a registry?
Madison: No, I don't. But if I did, it's none of your business, ok, just like my private conversations.
Greenlee: I love Ryan. You're carrying his baby. I just want this settled.
Madison: Translation -- "Stay away from Ryan"? I should have his baby somewhere else? Yeah, you want me gone Greenlee. I get that.
Greenlee: I thought that's what you wanted. We had a deal. You were going to move to New York and live happily ever after with your baby.
Madison: I changed my mind.
Greenlee: And that has a direct impact on my life, my future. I have a right to know what your new plan is.
Madison: I don't have a new plan, ok, so just stop interrogating me. I know you refuse to believe it, but I don't want Ryan to know about this baby any more than you do. So when I start to show, I will avoid Ryan, I will wear big sweaters -- whatever I have to do. Who knows? Maybe I'll find some guy to pretend like he's the father.
Ryan: Hey. What are you still doing here? I thought you were going to get dessert.
Greenlee: Hi. Um, I got a call from one of Fusion's distributors. It's a big perfume emergency. Will you apologize to Kendall and tell her I had to go?
Liza: Ahem. Damon was just here, actually, a little while ago.
Colby: What did he say to you?
Liza: Well, honey, he was very upset. He doesn't want to work for me anymore. You know?
Colby: Great. Great. He's quitting his job, he's leaving town, and it's all my fault.
Liza: No, honey. Honey, no, it's not. It's not your fault.
Colby: Did Damon tell you what I did?
Liza: Yeah, he did. He did.
Colby: I knew kissing Asher was wrong. I don't understand why I would be so stupid about the whole thing.
Liza: Honey, sometimes these things -- they just happen. You weren't intentionally trying to hurt Damon.
Colby: But I did. Mom, I betrayed him. Something like that you can't take back, ever. Mom, I know that we haven't been close, but will you come sit with me, please?
Liza: Why don't I grab you some tea?
Colby: No, I don't want any tea. Mom, he was working so hard for me, and this is what I do. He was trying to turn his life around for me.
Liza: Honey, sometimes people -- they just -- honey, they just make mistakes, you know?
Colby: I was suspicious of everything. I assumed all this stuff of you guys. I mean, my God. You're my mother. And I get it now. You were trying to help me, you were trying to help Damon, and I am so sorry.
Liza: No, don't. Stop. Don't apologize to me, ok? I'm the one that needs to be apologizing to you, Colby. Oh, God, could you ever forgive me?
Colby: For what?
Tad: Come on. Don't do this to your old man. You're gonna get pneumonia. Talk to me.
Damon: It's Colby. I love her so much, and I saw her with Asher.
Tad: Ok. So you love her. You saw her with Asher. What happened? Come here. Come here.
Damon: Actually seeing them together, I stopped thinking. I stopped. I just -- I wanted to --
Tad: To what?
Damon: I think I'm gonna be sick.
Tad: What did you do? Damon, come on. What did you do?
Damon: I can't. I can't.
Tad: What did you do?
Damon: I was with someone else.
Tad: You dog. Ok. I'm sorry. I'm not making light of it. All right? You made a mistake, and it's a bad one, all right, but it's not the worst thing in the world.
Damon: You don't get it.
Tad: Don't kid yourself. Of course, I do. At your age, you look the way you do, life is complicated, all right, especially when it comes to loving somebody. That doesn't mean you can't get past it. It doesn't mean that you --
Damon: Not this. Not this.
Tad: Why not?
Damon: Don't make me say it, please? I can't.
Tad: How bad does it get? How deep does it go? Is it somebody she knows? Is it like a friend of hers or something?
Damon: Not exactly.
Tad: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Damon: Please, please?
Tad: Come on. You're starting to scare me. Stop it. Look me in the eye. Who is it? Somebody you shouldn't be involved with? Somebody you met at a bar? A chat room? Where?
Tad: Oh, God, no.
Colby: Why are you so upset, Mom?
Liza: Ok, you have to understand that I would never, ever intentionally hurt you. You know that, right? You know that, do you?
Colby: Yes, but you're shaking.
Liza: Because all I've ever wanted to do was be a really good mother, you know, and be somebody that you can actually trust.
Colby: I tried. I really tried.
Liza: Oh, my God, if I had one wish right now, you know what I would do? I'd erase everything, and I would start all over again. And I would erase every stupid move that I've ever done just so you know that I could be there for you, how much I care about you.
Colby: Where is this all coming from, Mom?
Liza: It's just everything. It's everything that happened with Damon. It's this whole Damon thing, you know? I just --
Colby: No, Mom, I'm the one who screwed up with Damon.
Liza: You see, I'm the one who never trusted him. I never trusted him. I never believed that he was any good for you or for my daughter. Oh, my God.
Colby: Mom, you only did that because you thought that you were protecting me.
Liza: What I was doing was I was protecting myself, is what I was doing. I was protecting me. It was about me. I wanted what I wanted. I wanted to keep my little girl. That's what I wanted! I didn't want to let you go!
Colby: Why are you saying all of this?
Liza: Because! Because it's wrong, Colby. I messed up. You were right. You were absolutely right from the beginning. The reason I hired Damon was because I wanted to keep in control of everything. I wanted to control him, and I wanted to control you, and it's wrong. It's just so wrong.
Colby: Mom --
Liza: It's so wrong.
Colby: Mom, I have wanted honesty for so long about Damon. Thank you.
Liza: It was my fault. It was my fault. You know that?
Colby: No, Mom. Listen to me. No. Damon -- he wanted to go to college. He has dreams. He wants to go to law school. None of that would've happened if it weren't for you.
Liza: Uh --
Colby: I have to go fix --
Liza: No, honey, don't. Colby, where are you going?
Colby: I have to go fix things.
Liza: No, don't! Because I believe that Damon needs some time right now, ok? He does.
Colby: No, Mom, I love Damon and I can't lose him. I need to get him to forgive me.
Tad: You and Liza?
Damon: You can say it. You hate me. Hmm! I'm the loser you always knew that I was. Your long-lost son -- he's a worthless piece of crap who blew everything apart, and now you hate me.
Tad: I don't hate you.
Damon: I hate myself!
Tad: Would you stop it? I know you're hurt, I know you're in pain, but right now all I want is for you to just stand still long enough to talk to me.
Damon: Are you kidding? Talk to you?
Tad: I want to know what happened. I want to know why it happened --
Damon: Tad, forget it! I'm worthless! Just forget me!
Tad: I don't know how many ways to say it. I'm not. I can't. I can't forget you. It's never gonna happen. I'm never gonna walk away from you. I've told you a thousand times, so I'm gonna tell you again. So you're just gonna have to endure the speech about how when I was a little boy, the son of a bitch who called himself my father -- he dropped me off like a broken piece of trash in a park. It was a lot like this one, ok? A lot like this one, and I felt exactly the same way you do now. I know what it feels like to be worthless. I know what it feels like to be alone, and from the bottom of my heart I'm telling you you're neither, ok? You're my son, you always will be, and I'm never, ever gonna walk away from you. Now, we can stand here freezing our asses off until February, or you can simply tell me what happened.
Damon: I was so angry at Colby because she kissed Asher. Kissed him, that's all, and then I do this with her own mother. She didn't deserve this. You didn't deserve this.
Tad: Oh, come on, kiddo. This is life. "Deserves" got nothing to do with it, believe me. I just want to know, did Liza initiate this?
Damon: What? No. No.
Tad: It's just a logical question. She tried to set you up once before.
Damon: No, this was not a setup. Liza did not plan this. Tad, I went to her apartment. I kissed her. I -- God, what is wrong with me?
Tad: Nothing. Hey, nothing, ok? Come here. You made a mistake. You made a bad mistake, and it's gonna hurt you. It's gonna hurt a lot of people, but that doesn't mean you can't get over it.
Damon: It was so much more than that. You don't get it.
Tad: You'll get past this, ok?
Damon: You don't get it.
Tad: Are you kidding. Look, you know what happened to me. When I was your age, I did the same thing. I slept with Liza and her mother, and you know how far gone I was? I actually thought that it made me somebody. I was proud of it, you know, because it made me a player. At least you're in pain. You know what you did was wrong. This is killing you, and that's what's gonna save you.
Damon: Save me?
Tad: Yeah, save you -- your heart, your soul. That's why in life you got to have faith. That's the most important thing sometimes. Look, ever since the day I met you, I've seen you overcome challenges that would've crippled me, and every time you stared it down. You beat it, and that's why I'm so proud of you, ok? You made a decision to do the right thing, to do better, to be better, ok? You're not perfect. Who the hell is? At least you're out there in life giving it your best shot. That's why I love you. Ok? That's why I believe in you, and now I'm asking you to believe in me. Son, you're gonna find your way through this.
Damon: How? If I tell Colby --
Tad: You're not. You're not. Look at me. Don't you dare tell Colby, ok? It's not gonna help her. It's not gonna help you.
Damon: How do I not tell her?
Tad: I don't know, but you find a way. Because take it from me, I saw firsthand what it did to her mother. This will crush Colby. You keep your mouth shut.
Damon: So, what, I just move on? I don't know if I can. I don't know if I can ever look her in the face again.
Tad: It's gonna be tough. It's gonna be hard. But one way or another, you got to find a way.
Damon: I'm so sorry.
Tad: I know.
Madison: So how are you feeling?
Kendall: Ok, I don't want to talk about me anymore. I'm sick of that. I want to talk about you.
Madison: I'll be happy when I find a job.
Kendall: All right. Why don't you come back to Fusion?
Kendall: Yeah. You can have your old position back. It'll be like you never left.
Madison: Kendall, that is a very, very nice offer, but I don't think it'll work.
Kendall: You don't want to be around Greenlee?
Madison: There's more to it than that. It's just not a good idea.
Kendall: You won't have to be around Greenlee until you're ready.
Madison: How's that possible? What, I work the Fusion office in Siberia?
Kendall: No, not Siberia. My living room. Once I get out of here, I'm gonna have to take it easy, and I'm gonna want to be around the boys. So I'll be working from my home, and so will you. You'll be working exclusively just for me.
Madison: For how long?
Kendall: Maybe a month. By then, you'll probably be ready.
Madison: A lot can happen in a month.
Scott: What are you doing here?
Greenlee: Ryan told me he saw you the other day. You asked him for a job, and he had to say no.
Greenlee: Maybe I can say yes.
Ryan: So Kendall will be ready to execute it as soon as she gets released from here.
Lawyer: Thanks for your help.
Ryan: Roger, can I ask you a question about Zach's casinos, if you don't mind? You were involved with the casinos, right?
Roger: Yeah, to some extent.
Ryan: So I know that his partners weren't crazy about the casino sale going through, and I also know that Zach was a little bit concerned about some kind of retaliation. Were these guys kind of rough?
Roger: You don't know?
Ryan: Uh, know what?
Roger: Mr. Slater died before the sale of the casinos was finalized.
Kendall: Free coffee, all you can drink, any time.
Madison: Well, ok. Ok. I will work for you. Greenlee's not gonna like it.
Kendall: I will handle Greenlee.
Scott: All right. Why would you want to help me?
Greenlee: Do old friendships count for nothing, not to mention the fact that I had a major crush on you?
Scott: Ok. That was, like, 10 years ago, and we have barely spoken since.
Greenlee: I feel bad about that. I should've reached out to you after Stuart died. This is my way of trying to make up for it. Ryan can't hire you at Cambias, but I can offer you another job, one that will help you with the parole board and get you out of here.
Scott: Ok. Greenlee, it has been a while, but I haven't forgotten how you operate. You are not here out of the kindness of your heart, so let's hear it. What do you want from me?
Ryan: So the sale of the casino never actually went through?
Roger: We got close, but then Mr. Slater's plane went down.
Ryan: Really? Because the cause of crash was never determined.
Roger: I assumed it was an accident.
Ryan: Everybody did. But if somebody had a reason to make it happen -- I mean, Zach may have been murdered.
Colby: [Walks up to Damon in the park] I talked to my mom.
[Knock on door]
