Liza: You're marrying her, your brother's ex-wife?
Tad: yeah. Yeah. We've decided not to wait any longer.
Cara: When it's right, it's right.
Liza: Wait. Cara's been in town for a minute and a half?
Tad: That's not true. And sometimes things just happen.
Liza: Not to you, Tad, they don't. What's the truth here? Come on. I know you. What's going on?
Griffin: What I'm trying to tell you is that someone anonymously tipped off Immigration. That's why they came down on her.
Jake: Who else knew that Cara was here illegally besides us.
Jake: What? What does that mean?
Griffin: It means we don't have to look far for the son of a bitch.
Amanda: Why don't you just back off, ok? The only one to blame for what has happened is Cara. Your sister brought this on herself.
Gertie: I knew it. I knew it. I woke up this morning and said, "Gertie, today's the day you are gonna get out of bed. You're gonna rise and shine ands put on your hire-me pumps, because you have been out of work for too long." Yeah. No, somebody's gonna call at that employment agency and just snap you up, but this time it's gonna be different. Oh, yeah. No, positivity all the way. Yeah. No, even if my boss is a major cheese bag like the last one and the one before that and the one before that, I'm just gonna put on a corporate smile and suck it up. So, all right. What's the gig, and where is the office? What? I just may be a tad overdressed.
Ricky: What? I told you not to call me. Yes, I'm in her house, and unlike those other idiots, I'm not tearing the place to pieces. Kendall's coming home from the hospital today. Uh-uh. Whatever evidence Zach had on us, I don't think it's in this house. Hey, I'll find it, ok? I didn't kill him just to have him bite us in the ass from the grave.
[Erica walks in]
Ryan: How are you?
Kendall: I'm good, but never mind about me. Any news on Emma?
Ryan: No, nothing yet.
Kendall: Ryan, I am so sorry.
Ryan: I keep telling myself that Annie would never do anything to hurt her. I just -- anyway, look. I'm here, because I need to talk to you about something.
Ryan: It's about Zach and his plane crash.
Kendall: Is this because of what I asked Greenlee to do?
Ryan: I heard that your house got broken into.
Kendall: Yeah, the cops aren't worried. They think it's fine. My mind just started to jump.
Ryan: To Zach and to his casino partners that he thought were really dangerous?
Kendall: Did you find something out?
Ryan: I told you that I went back to California, right, to the place where the plane crashed, and I asked some questions about it?
Kendall: Yeah. And they said it was an accident, right?
Ryan: Right. But it was just very hard for me to accept that something could be so random, that Zach could get on a plane to help Greenlee and me, and then end up -- so I was blaming myself. Greenlee and I, we were both blaming ourselves.
Kendall: Ryan, I was, too. Ok? But there's no one to blame.
Ryan: I had to be sure. I had to make sure that it was so random, that it was just a horrible, tragic accident. So I -- I hired an expert. I hired an ex-NTSB investigator.
Ryan: In the middle of me tracing Annie's steps and trying to find my daughter, I get this phone call from him, and he found something.
[Knock on door]
Erica: Yes? May I help you?
Gertie: You can if you want. I'm here to clean your house.
Erica: They sent you?
Gertie: I know. It's hard to believe that this package is gonna mop and dust.
Erica: When I called the cleaning service, I specifically asked for Donna.
Gertie: For Christmas, I specifically asked for Mario Lopez.
Erica: May I see some identification?
Gertie: Lady, I'm here to clean your house, not to do undercover work for the CIA.
Erica: There's no way I'm letting you in this house without seeing identification.
Gertie: All right. Hold this. Here it is.
Erica: You use a price's club card for your identification?
Gertie: The picture is so much better than on my license. You see?
Erica: "Gertrude Stein"?
Gertie: Yes, yes, I know. I've heard all of the jokes before. My friends call me Gertie. So you got a name? Oh, my God! You're not really her, are you? Are you the Erica Kane, the one with the TV show and all the husbands?
Erica: Yes, I am Erica Kane.
Gertie: Wow. I never much cared for you.
Amanda: I know you love your sister, but whatever trouble she is in is clearly her own fault.
Jake: Hang on a second.
Amanda: No one asked her to come to Pine Valley. That was all her own idea, yes? And then once she did get here, all she did is throw out one lie after another.
Griffin: Oh, really? Is that all she did? What about her work here at the hospital saving lives?
Jake: Hold on. Can we just take it down a notch? We're at work.
Griffin: I'm not the one who has the problem here, Jake.
Amanda: I don't have a problem except for you trying to blame Jake for everything.
Amanda: He clearly would not do anything to ever hurt someone.
Jake: Honey, he's not accusing me of anything.
Amanda: It sounded like that to me with you throwing around accusations of who turned Cara in.
Griffin: I don't think it's Jake. We're all just trying to find out what the hell went wrong here.
Amanda: I'm sorry. I guess I was just being an overprotective wife.
Griffin: It didn't look that way to me.
Amanda: I said I'm sorry, ok? What else do you want?
Griffin: What about the truth? You can't stand my sister, you hate that she's here, and you think she's in love with your husband.
Jake: All right. Enough.
Griffin: We're all just trying to say the truth here, right, Jake?
Jake: Take it down, ok? I'm asking you nicely to stop.
Griffin: Ok. You know what? I don't give a damn about all the drama -- the wives, the ex-wives, all that crap. One wrong word out of you, and you could cost Cara her life.
Amanda: I would never do that.
Jake: She wouldn't.
Griffin: Excuse me if I'm not confident in that.
Jake: You know what? You shouldn't be. You want to know why? Because Amanda's already met with immigration and she's backed up their story -- Tad and Cara are engaged. Ok? So are you satisfied now?
Griffin: Yeah. I didn't know that.
Amanda: I just did what needed to be done.
Tad: Liza, it's not a joke. Why don't you turn it off for a while? You don't have to be the D.A. all the time. There's no conspiracy to look into. We're engaged, and we have been for a while.
Cara: I can understand you being surprised. We were, right?
Tad: Absolutely. When she showed up, I didn't even like her that much.
Cara: What? I didn't like you either.
Liza: So you two just fell in love?
Cara: Oh, no.
Cara: Friends first.
Tad: That goes without saying.
Cara: Yeah, of course. But then the friendship turned --
Tad: Which grew into so much more.
Cara: Oh, look at that. Ha. It's the hospital. I'll be right back -- honey.
Liza: So am I getting an invitation to this wedding?
Tad: I don't know if we're doing a big deal --
Liza: Come on, Tad Martin. Are you kidding me? You expect me to buy this bull? I know you better than that, and I know when you're lying.
Erica: Do you think I give a damn whether you liked me on television or not?
Gertie: Not so much in person either, so far.
Erica: You'd think with the economy the way it is, you'd be a lot more grateful to have a job.
Gertie: Oh, yeah. I'm thrilled. Can't wait to wipe down your toilets.
Erica: The supplies are in the kitchen.
Gertie: You know, Erica Kane, I know more about you than you think. I read the tabloids.
Erica: What a surprise.
Gertie: So is it true that you had an affair with -- what is his name? The guy with the big ears?
Erica: Why don't you start upstairs in the bedrooms?
Gertie: Prince Charles. That's the one.
Erica: No. I hear he's very happily married.
Gertie: That never stopped you before.
Erica: Ok. That's it.
Gertie: Oh, come on! You've got to be tougher skinned than that, what with all the times you've been in jail and all those husbands. Speaking of which, that Jackson Montgomery guy is quite a looker. So how come you haven't set the date? You've been engaged, like, forever.
Erica: You're fired.
Gertie: Touchy subject, I guess.
Erica: And I'm calling your employer and telling them about your behavior.
Gertie: My behavior? What about your behavior? Engaged to tall, blond, sexy, and dirty, and fooling around with that hot bear of a guy from the mountaintop.
Erica: What part of "you're fired" don't you get?
Gertie: What? You mean I'm fired for real? Oh, wow. I thought you were just putting on a show, if you know what I mean.
Erica: I haven't known what you meant since you walked through that door. Now, get out of here now! Leave before I call the police! Out!
Gertie: Just one more thing. Could I get an autograph before I go? I really --
[Erica slams the door]
Kendall: So what did your investigator come up with? Was it foul play? Was Zach's plane sabotaged?
Ryan: It was nothing like that. It was nothing like that. My guy found a box with Zach's initials on it.
Kendall: Oh, my God.
Ryan: The Feds must've missed it somehow. Maybe it didn't look like it was part of a plane crash. I don't know. But it was a small metal lockbox, the kind of thing that you keep personal items in. Anyway, I'm having it sent to you. Ok? And you can open it, you can not open it, whatever you want to do. It belongs to you.
Kendall: I have to open it, Ryan. How can I not?
Ryan: I wish I could be here with you when you get it, when you open it.
Kendall: No. God, no. I totally understand. You have to go take care of Emma.
Ryan: I got to get back out. I got to keep the search going. But I could talk to Erica or I could talk to Bianca, see if they could be with you when you're opening it.
Kendall: No, no, no. I need to do this on my own.
Ryan: Are you sure? You don't have to.
Kendall: Yes, I do, Ryan. I can't always depend on my mom or you or Greenlee to be there, to hold me up. This is the last piece of Zach that survived, and I need to see what it is.
Tad: You know what you're acting like right now? What you're acting exactly like? A jealous ex.
Liza: Yeah, that's not what this is about.
Tad: That's exactly what's going on. You should see the look in your face. Here you are, you get all bent out of shape because you find out all of a sudden that I have a fiancée who's young and beautiful, and she is, Liza. She's beautiful. She's young.
Liza: You said that already.
Tad: I'm making a point.
Liza: So, what, you love her?
Liza: You want to spend the rest of your life with her?
Tad: Who wouldn't? She's beautiful.
Liza: Yeah, ok. You know what? Let's just say, for argument's sake, you do. You love her.
Tad: I love her. It's not an argument.
Liza: Just want to know, when did it happen?
Tad: What do you mean?
Liza: What was the moment that you actually fell in love?
Tad: The moment?
Liza: The moment.
Tad: There are so many.
Liza: Pick one.
Tad: I couldn't begin to. Let me tell you something. She's not -- she's so much more than beautiful. That is not your average, garden-variety spicy tomato. There is -- she's smart. She's loyal. She's brave. She's been through the wars, Liza, and she gets me.
Liza: She gets you?
Tad: Yeah. You speak English? Gets me. She understands me, the good and the bad, and God knows there's plenty of that. And she loves me anyway, Liza. Here's a news flash for you, something you never thought about -- she actually makes me feel good about myself. What more do I have to say?
Liza: So Jake is ok with this marriage?
Tad: Yeah. Jake wants us to be happy, and I should hope somewhere deep down, you do, too.
Cara: I'm sorry. I might have to go into the hospital. There's a patient that's not doing well.
Tad: Ok. You just let me know what happens, ok?
Jake: Are you ok?
Amanda: I'm sorry, Jake. I just lost it when I thought he was going after you.
Jake: I kind of like it when you do that, though. Is that weird? Like a tigress.
Amanda: But I know he was just trying to protect Cara. It's always all about Cara.
Jake: Babe, that's his sister. Are we ok with the whole Cara thing? By now I would --
Amanda: I am. And I shouldn't have blamed everything on her. It wasn't fair.
Jake: I'm sure he'll understand. Don't worry about it.
Amanda: It's just so hard, all of it.
Jake: Come here. You know what I think it is? I think it's because you were basically interrogated by that Immigration officer. That's a horrible -- nobody likes that, you know?
Amanda: The way he looked at me like he knew everything, like he could tell that we were lying.
Jake: No. Hold on a second. He's never gonna be able to -- it doesn't matter. He can't prove it. Ok? She'll stay out of danger as long as we all stick to the same story. Ok? They're engaged, that's it, and then she won't be deported.
Amanda: I know.
Jake: Because that idiot, whoever called up Immigration -- I mean, who does that?
Amanda: Jake, I really think that you should let it go.
Jake: I think that person should be found, and I think they should have to pay. That's what I think.
Amanda: You are now the acting chief of staff. You have to make life-and-death decisions every day. You can't get caught up in some vendetta that takes your mind off of your job, your family.
Jake: I can't seem to let it go, though.
Amanda: I'm asking you to, please.
Jake: Normally, I would do anything for you. You know that. It's just something that's eating away at me. I think --
Amanda: Jake --
Jake: Why am I getting a funny signal here?
Amanda: You can stop your investigation.
Jake: Because you're the one who made the call.
Kendall: Yeah. Yeah, I think I'll be ok. And please let me know the second you hear anything about Emma.
Ryan: I absolutely will.
Griffin: I'm just gonna check her vitals.
Erica: Ryan. Hi. Did you find Emma?
Ryan: No. Not yet, but we're hoping to find out something really soon. In fact, I got to get back out to it.
Erica: Of course.
Kendall: Just keep in touch, ok?
Erica: Ok. What's going on? What am I missing?
Ryan: I hired an investigator to look into Zach's plane crash.
Ryan: He didn't find any reason to believe it was anything but an accident.
Erica: But judging from the look on Kendall's face, there's obviously something else.
Kendall: They found a metal box that belonged to Zach. Apparently, the initial search missed it. They should be sending it to me sometime today.
Erica: Do you have any idea what's in it?
Ryan: I just wanted to make sure Kendall knew it was coming, that's all.
Erica: Thank you. Amazing, in the face of everything you've got going on.
Ryan: Someday all of this is gonna turn around for everybody.
Diana: It's freezing out here.
Ricky: Sorry. I had to make a stop along the way to counsel Mrs. Montrose. She's having a really hard time with her son who's clearly turned his back on a Christian lifestyle.
Diana: You do remember that you're not really a minister? You're -- the exact opposite of a minister. You kill people.
Ricky: That's not all I do.
Diana: Well, you get my point.
Ricky: I know what I am. And I know that I have a cover to protect if I'm gonna keep that money flowing from those casinos to us. Oh! And not to mention keeping us all out of prison.
Diana: But you didn't find anything in the house.
Ricky: No, I didn't, because Kendall's mother walked in. And had she seen me, she might've met herself with an unfortunate accident.
Diana: Ok. So now what?
Ricky: Now? Now I get Kendall to rely on me. We're friends, but I need to get closer to her if she's gonna lead me to what we're looking for.
Diana: Hmm. You seem to be liking this assignment.
Ricky: Kendall's a very attractive woman.
Erica: Dr. Castillo says that he's cleared you to go home. I'm not sure that he's right.
Kendall: I asked for it.
Griffin: Over and over again.
Kendall: Mom, I want to go home. I want to be there when Zach's box arrives.
Griffin: I wouldn't cut her loose if I didn't think she was capable of leaving. And she's promised she won't skip out on any more hospital follow-ups.
Erica: Ok. Then I'll take you home. I don't want you to be alone when that box arrives.
Kendall: No, Mom, you've protected me enough. It's time that I stand on my own. I need to do this.
Erica: Ok. I'll give you a few minutes, then. And just please be sure she's up for this?
Griffin: You got it.
Erica: Ok. I'll be right outside, then.
Kendall: I am leaving today.
Griffin: Your pulse is normal. Everything checks out.
Kendall: You do understand that?
Griffin: Yes, I do. I guess it's time to let you go.
Cara: Are we good here?
Liza: "Are we good?"
Cara: Yeah. Do we need to answer any more questions? Like where we shared our first kiss, or my favorite part on your body?
Tad: [Chuckles] I don't think you have to go that far, Kitten.
Liza: Well, on behalf of myself and the entire Pine Valley prosecutor's office, I'd like to wish you congratulations.
Tad: Liza, how sweet and formal of you.
Cara: Thank you.
Cara: Yep, I'm going in. Yeah. So I'm gonna -- why don't you stay here, because this could be a while.
Tad: It's probably a good idea.
Cara: Ok. But I will call you later. Ok. Oh, bye. [Kiss]
Liza: Bye. Feisty little thing, isn't she?
Tad: That's why I love her.
Liza: If I wasn't so concerned about Colby, I would love to ask you a lot more questions.
Tad: But you are. And by that, I take it you haven't spoken with her?
Liza: Not exactly speaking. Not after she found out that I slept with her boyfriend.
Tad: Give her time.
Liza: She's not gonna forget this. Tad, there's way too much family history for that.
Jake: Tell me I'm wrong about this. Tell me right now that you didn't make that phone call. Will you please tell me that?
Amanda: I'm -- I'm so sorry. And I didn't mean -- I didn't think --
Jake: You didn't think what?
Amanda: That it would turn out the way that it did.
Jake: Why would you ever make a phone call like that?
Amanda: We both know that she is still in love with you. That is why she came back to Pine Valley. That's why she stayed here. And I was afraid, and I was scared. I was angry.
Jake: What are you afraid of, exactly? That she's gonna steal me from you? That she's gonna steal me from our son?
Amanda: I know that you love me, and I know that you are committed to our marriage, but she's so -- I don't know. She is your first real love. And you haven't been the same since she got here. We have not been the same.
Jake: Would you lower your voice, please? Instead of coming to me, believing in me, or trusting in us, you call Immigration to get her deported? Deported! Thank you so much. I'm sorry that I called you in on your day off.
Cara: Oh, correction -- I'm glad you did. Amanda. So I think we're gonna have to do surgery on Mrs. Taylor.
Jake: Right. I'll call Admin, and I'll get them to get the paperwork --
Cara: I'm already on it.
Jake: Really? All right, then. Thank you.
Cara: Nothing else?
Jake: No, no. Good. Thank you.
Amanda: Thank you for not saying --
Jake: We are not doing this here.
Erica: Caleb, please listen to your messages. I have been trying to reach you. It's important. Ohh. Will you ever learn to use your cell phone?
Erica: Oh. Reverend. Hi. I'm so glad to see you.
Ricky: How's our Kendall doing?
Erica: She's actually going home today, and, frankly, I'm a bit concerned.
Ricky: Ok. Any way I can help?
Erica: You've already been such a help to Kendall and to all of us in our family, but I do really think she's gonna need even more support now.
Ricky: Ok. Is there something I don't know?
Erica: Apparently Ryan Lavery has continued the investigation of Zach's crash, and apparently he found this box, a metal box that Zach had on the plane with him.
Ricky: A box?
Erica: Mm-hmm. And I guess it was important enough for Zach to have it with him on the plane.
Ricky: Ok, this box -- where is it?
Erica: Actually, it's gonna be delivered to Kendall today. And the thing is she said that she wants to be alone when she opens it. That's what she told me.
Ricky: Yeah. I understand. But I don't think that's such a good thing.
Erica: Oh, I am so glad that you agree.
Ricky: I tell you what. Maybe she'd allow me to take her, to be there with her, make sure she's ok.
Erica: I would be so grateful.
Griffin: Sorry the release is taking so long. You'll be free to go in a few.
Kendall: My mother will not be happy about that.
Griffin: I can understand her concern, considering what you're going home to do.
Kendall: Open Zach's box.
Griffin: Be kind of heavy stuff. You sure you're up for it?
Kendall: I can handle it.
Griffin: No doubt, but I want you to promise me that if it becomes too much, you'll bail. Or if there's any symptoms of distress, you'll call me.
Kendall: Yes, Doctor.
Griffin: I'm serious. We made a deal. I keep you safe, you keep me in the loop.
Kendall: Yes. Ok. Here's the loop. I will probably cry, feel sorry for myself for a while. But then I'll remember that I have so much to be grateful for: My sons, my family -- even you made that list.
Griffin: Pain in the ass that I am.
Kendall: Yeah. So you gonna miss me? What are you gonna worry about once I'm gone?
Griffin: I still have my sister.
Kendall: What's going on with Cara?
Griffin: Nothing. Just big-brother worries.
Kendall: You want to talk about it?
Kendall: Do it anyway.
Griffin: I guess you'll find out sooner or later. She's getting married.
Kendall: Really? And that's bad news?
Griffin: To Tad Martin.
Kendall: To Tad?! What?
Griffin: I know. Apparently, they've been seeing each other for a while. They didn't want to make a big deal about it.
Kendall: It is kind of a shock, but for what it's worth, Tad is one of the good guys. There's a few of those around.
Griffin: So, um, you take care of yourself. Hmm?
Kendall: Yeah. You, too.
Griffin: There's a wheelchair waiting for you outside.
Kendall: Griff? Thanks for saving my life.
Ricky: And there she is.
Kendall: Hi! I did not know you would be here today.
Ricky: I pulled the lucky ticket. I get to take you home.
Kendall: Really? Sounds like some divine intervention to me.
Ricky: Something like that.
Kendall: Mm-hmm. Ok, Mom, I am fine, I have survived, and I don't want you to worry about anything.
Erica: That's not gonna happen.
Kendall: Yes, I know. I'm a mom, too.
Erica: So I'll call you, or you call me if you need anything. Ok? And I know you're in good hands.
Jake: I've told you every time this comes up. Cara is not a threat to us. She's not a threat to our marriage. She's not a threat.
Amanda: And I know that you meant that, but --
Jake: But what? I think it's because you don't trust us or you don't trust me anymore. Is that what it is?
Amanda: I love you, and I trust you. It is Cara that I don't trust -- how she is with you, how she still wears that ring around her neck!
Jake: You're obsessed with this ring. I have a past, ok? Everybody's got a past, and that's what this is. It's all in the past.
Amanda: That's not what it sounded like to me.
Jake: What what sounded like?
Amanda: I heard her, Jake! I heard her, what she said to you about how she wanted to get back with you, the love of her life.
Jake: Oh, my God! She was joking. She was kidding.
Amanda: That's not funny!
Jake: Because you overheard something, and you heard it wrong, now someone's in danger. They're gonna get sent out of this country --
Amanda: I was trying to protect my family!
Jake: On a hit list!
Amanda: You never told me about a hit list. I didn't know that Cara would be put in danger.
Jake: Not the kind of thing that you bring somebody into, is it?
Amanda: Why? We're not supposed to keep anything from each other!
Jake: Because it's dangerous. Because I don't want you involved in anything like that.
Amanda: Before she came to town, you never kept anything from me.
Jake: This is different. That has nothing to do with it.
Amanda: I need you to understand this. If I knew that Cara would be in any danger, I never -- I never would've called Immigration. But you were so intent on protecting her!
Jake: You're blaming everybody else, blame it on Cara. You're the one who made the phone call. You did it!
Amanda: I am not trying to put anything on her, ok? I get it. I made a mistake. I was trying to protect my marriage, and I made a mistake and I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. And now I'm afraid that you're never gonna forgive me.
Griffin: How's your first day as an engaged woman? I know. I know.
Cara: What a mess, you know?
Cara: Got to call Mom, break the news to her. That's for you.
Griffin: That'll be a fun one.
Cara: Yeah. You know what, though? This time I'm actually telling her before I get married.
Griffin: You didn't call her when you got married to Jake, you didn't call her when you got a divorce, and now you're gonna call her when you're getting married to his brother.
Cara: Va a matarme.
Griffin: She's not gonna kill you, but she's gonna have some choice words for you in Spanish.
Cara: I wish there was another option.
Griffin: You want me to call her?
Cara: No. I'm doing this one myself. I'm sorry I'm pulling everybody into this.
Griffin: Hey. You got nothing to be sorry about. Come here. Just don't expect a big wedding present.
Erica: Caleb, are you just ignoring my calls, or have you forgotten your cell phone at home again? You know I'm gonna have to pin that to your shirt. Bartender, could I have a cranberry and soda, please? Caleb, we really need to meet. I have something very important to discuss with you, so call me. Ohh. Thank you. You?
Gertie: Hey, like you said, bad economy, and girl's got to eat.
Erica: Things just keep getting better and better.
Kendall: Thank you for your support there. Your strong arm definitely helped.
Ricky: Sure. I tell you what. Why don't you sit down, take a load off. I'll get you some water, maybe something to eat?
Kendall: No. I don't need anything. I just want to look around.
Ricky: Better shape than we left it.
Ricky: Good to be home?
Kendall: Yes. It's wonderful.
Ricky: You're a very lucky girl to have -- to be surrounded by all these people who care about you.
Kendall: Yeah, I know I am.
Ricky: And Ryan Lavery? He's really been there for you, especially since you lost your husband.
Kendall: We've been friends forever.
Ricky: The fact that he hired his own investigator to look into the crash? Wow. That is some friend.
Kendall: Yeah. He just wanted to make sure everything was done.
Ricky: So your mother said that they found a box? Something about a box?
Kendall: Yeah. I don't know what's in it, but --
Kendall: I'll find out.
Ricky: Hey, why don't you let me get that?
Kendall: It's ok. I got it.
Messenger: Are you Mrs. Zach Slater?
Kendall: Yes. Yes, I am.
Messenger: Can I get you to sign here?
Kendall: Yes, of course.
Kendall: Thank you.
Ricky: You know what? Why don't you let me open it.
Kendall: No. No. This is my last connection to Zach.
Ricky: The doctor said that you need to stay --
Kendall: I know, but I need to do this for myself. I wonder what he left behind for me.
Amanda: Come on, Jake, you have to say something to me. Please? Yell at me. Tell me I did something terrible, and I did, and I'm sorry. [Crying]
Jake: I know you're sorry. I'm sorry, too. I just --
Amanda: Come on, Jake, don't leave. Jake? I love you.
Cara: Are we ok?
Tad: Yeah. You probably don't have to knock anymore.
Cara: Right. No knocking. Got it.
Tad: How'd it go at the hospital?
Cara: I ran into Jake and Amanda.
Tad: Really? How'd that go?
Cara: Tense. I know how Amanda feels about me. She thinks I'm like this pariah that landed into Pine Valley.
Tad: Forget about Amanda. She'll get over it.
Cara: Yeah? You think? Because I am her husband's ex-wife, and if I marry you, then I'm gonna be her sister-in-law.
Tad: Look at it this way. You've gone from pariah to ex-wife to sister-in-law. It's quite a trifecta.
Cara: She probably hates what I've done to your family.
Tad: Who cares? I don't care how she feels about it. I care how you feel about it. You were willing to save Jake's life, so I'm marrying you to save yours. End of story.
Cara: I think you're being way too kind about this.
Tad: No, I'm not. A guy could do a lot worse than being married to you. And look at it this way. You got a good income. You smell nice. You're not entirely unattractive to look at.
Cara: Thank you. That's so sweet.
Erica: This must be my lucky day.
Gertie: Yeah, me, too. But I'm kind of surprised to see you in a bar. You are a drunk, right?
Erica: You have such a lovely way with words. You don't remember that you just served me a cranberry and soda?
Gertie: I was just waiting for your flask to come out of your little Gucci Pucci bag there. So are you meeting lover boy Jackson?
Erica: I'm here for a business meeting.
Gertie: Monkey business, I'll bet, with that real sexy Caleb Cortlandt guy?
Erica: Ok, listen to me, bartender/cleaning lady. Not that I owe you any explanations at all, but FYI, I happen to be resigning from Cortlandt.
Gertie: Oh, and I'll bet you Jackson is making you do that to keep you away from Caleb.
Erica: Jackson and I -- why am I even speaking to you?
Gertie: So who's number one on your speed dial?
Erica: My daughter. I'm calling my daughter, who happens to also be part owner of this place. So you're getting fired, again.
Gertie: This really is not my day. You know how the autograph thing didn't exactly work out? How about we just get a photo instead? Here we go. [Snaps picture]
Kendall: Oh, my God. He did not? This is a love letter that I wrote to Zach, and he kept it. Here's an envelope made out to "My darling wife." Wonder what this is. "In the event of my untimely death."
