Cara: I can't wear this anymore. Because every time I see it, every time I touch it, it reminds me of what we had. So, please, take this.
Jake: I can't -- I can't do that.
Cara: It's time.
Jake: Are you really marrying my brother tomorrow?
Cara: Before I do, there's something else that you need to know.
Griffin: If you can't support Cara's decision to marry Tad, then you need to leave. You're either on board with the wedding, or I'm putting you on the next flight home. It's your choice.
Mrs. Castillo: I will be a guest like anyone else. I am not going to miss my daughter's wedding.
Tad: Any way we can get you to say that with a smile on your face?
Kathy: Can we be flower girls in Daddy's wedding?
Krystal: You know what? That is gonna be up to your daddy. Sorry. Run along, ok?
Opal: I guess I haven't even thought about what I'm gonna wear to this wedding. I got to ramp it up a little bit if I'm gonna be the mama of the groom.
Krystal: I'm sorry. Am I the only one who has a big problem with this wedding?
Colby: Why would someone post a picture of my mom?
J.R.: What do you expect? You broadcast that your mother, the district attorney, had sex with your boyfriend. I'm surprised that the press isn't all over this.
Colby: What is your problem?
J.R.: What do you mean, what's my problem? I'm pissed.
Colby: This has nothing to do with you, J.R.
J.R.: You're right, Colby. This has to do with the family! If you're trying to drag the Chandlers down even further, congratulations. Because it worked.
[Music plays at ConFusion]
Liza: I'll have a white wine.
Ricky: I get what you're saying, Mrs. Davis.
Diana: If Kendall sees the evidence, she'll send us to prison. You do understand that you'll have to get rid of her?
Ricky: Of course, I understand. This is what I do.
Diana: Did she find something?
Ricky: I have to go. Huh. You found the master switch.
Kendall: Yes, I did. Ohh. I know I've already said this, but being here without Zach -- it feels wrong.
Ricky: This place meant a lot to him?
Kendall: It meant a lot to all of us. This was our home for a while. But now I look around, and it's like we were never here. All of our personal things are gone.
Ricky: You sure about that?
Kendall: Yeah. Zach wanted to sell right away, so he moved all of the important stuff into storage a while ago.
Ricky: If he was in such a hurry, maybe he left something behind. And as long as you're here, maybe we should look around, check the safe. I don't know.
Kendall: There is no safe.
Ricky: Really? No safe? A big fancy yacht like this with no safe? Yeah. I guess I watched too many James Bond movies as a kid. No pop-up drawers, secret compartments, any hidden places where you could keep valuables?
Kendall: Actually, we did have one.
Colby: Can you at least be sympathetic, J.R.? You know what my mother did to me.
J.R.: Yeah. And now so does everyone with an Internet connection. What do you want me to do, give you a high-five? Look, I know how awful this is for you, but we have been trying to bounce back for over a year from bad press.
Colby: I know. Yeah. And we were doing fine until you got obsessed with that crazy woman, who almost killed me, by the way.
J.R.: I made mistakes. I know. But now it's time for us to pull this family together, not blast their mistakes all over cyberspace.
Colby: I didn't make any mistakes. My mother made the mistake.
J.R.: That's not what I meant. What I want to know is why, Colby? Why so public about something that's so --
Colby: Humiliating? I know. I don't know, ok? I was upset. I didn't do it on purpose. I was letting out my feelings. You probably have no idea what it feels like to be hurt by the people that are supposed to love you.
J.R.: I just want to make this go away, but it's too late. You can't take it back.
Asher: Maybe she can.
Tad: Thank God for the cops. Get in here.
Jesse: Tad --
Tad: I need you to do me a favor, ok? I need you to vouch for me with Mrs. Castillo. It's important. Don't talk. Just do this for me, ok?
Jesse: Tad --
Tad: Mrs. Castillo, I'd like to introduce my very best friend, Jesse Hubbard.
Mrs. Castillo: Hello.
Griffin: Jesse's the Chief of Police of Pine Valley.
Tad: And we practically go back to childhood. So as far as I'm concerned, there is no more honorable, more trustworthy man on this earth to serve as, for lack of a better word, a character witness for me. So would you please tell Cara's mother she's got nothing to worry about, that you're 100% behind this wedding.
Jesse: I actually came to talk you out of this.
Kathy: Can we listen to music on your phone?
Krystal: Uh, yeah. Sure. But just stay where I can see you, all right? Right over here. Ok?
Opal: Look, I feel like I'm standing in front of an oncoming train, ok, just trying to make the best of a bad situation. I thought we both agreed that we were coming on board.
Krystal: I didn't have a vote, Opal. And what do we know about this Cara anyway, besides the fact that she broke Jake's heart, and now she's using his brother? She's using all of us.
Opal: Yeah, I couldn't agree more. But I guess Tad thinks that the possibility of her getting gunned down by a bunch of banditos makes all of this worth it.
Krystal: Yeah. Worth it for her. But where does it leave Tad? He's making a huge sacrifice. You know that, don't you? He's giving up a big chunk of his future for a virtual stranger.
Opal: And you were, deep down, kind of hoping that that future would be with you.
Krystal: Maybe that's part of it, all right? But even if Tad and I never got back together, I like what we have. You know? It's different, but it works. For the first time in my life I feel -- I felt secure and part of a real family, and I guess I'm just not ready to give that up.
Opal: Who says you have to? Nothing's gonna change just because Tad says "I do," except maybe another chair at the dinner table.
Krystal: You know what? You won't need one more chair if I move out.
Cara: This ring saved my life.
Jake: What do you mean?
Cara: Um, when the cancer came back, I needed something to hold on to, so I held on to that. It was my lifeline. It was my connection to you. I sat in the hospital beds staring at the ring, praying that I would beat this disease, so that I could find you again, so I could explain to you. You'd forgive me, and then you'd slip that ring back on my finger. So everything changed for you, and now everything is changing for me, starting tomorrow, right? I'm gonna start this whole new chapter of my life.
Jake: But you showed this ring to the Immigration officer.
Cara: I'm gonna get another ring. It's just that this ring, the vows that we made -- this -- it's sacred, and it would be wrong to use it for something that wasn't real. So, um, I got to go, because I'm off to my fake bridal shower.
Amanda: Hey. What you got there?
Jake: Cara's ring. She didn't want it anymore. She said it would be weird wearing it for the marriage to my brother. Not that it's a real marriage, just -- but I get it. It's -- and it's good. This is good because this is proof that she's moved on. We moved on.
Amanda: Are you ok with that?
Jake: Yeah, I'm ok with that.
Amanda: So what are you gonna do with the ring?
Tad: You -- you jokester, you. Come on, man. This is serious. Yank the other one.
Mrs. Castillo: So you weren't serious when you said you would try to talk Tad out of this wedding?
Tad: Of course not. He knows what this means to me and Cara. He's been after me for years to find a nice woman and settle down. You know what? He and his wife Angela -- they're poster children for matrimony.
Mrs. Castillo: Is your wife too young for you, as well?
Griffin: You know, Mom, why don't we go to Cara's shower? Doesn't that sound like fun to you? Hmm?
Opal: Come on. You can't be serious.
Krystal: Tad needs to sell this marriage, Opal. How's it gonna look with his ex-wife living in the same house?
Opal: But where would you go?
Krystal: With all this craziness, I haven't even given it that much thought. But my main concern is the girls.
Opal: Those girls are Tad's, too, you know. He's not gonna let you just walk out the door with them. They're his life.
Krystal: Tad is on a mission to protect Cara. All right? Unfortunately, that puts one degree of separation between our girls and those drug lords, and that is my main concern.
Opal: This is just dandy. Just dandy. If you move out, who am I gonna share chocolate cake with at 3:00 in the morning?
Krystal: Maybe Cara likes cake.
Opal: I'll tell you something. I am never gonna like Tad's new wife half as much as I like his last one.
Opal: And she's standing right behind me, isn't she?
Cara: Hi. It's ok. I get it. It's -- I'm grateful for you guys throwing me this beautiful bridal shower. Thank you.
Krystal: Well, you know, we had to do it for Tad. He said that we had to make this work.
Opal: And for you, too, because every bride deserves a hat made out of ribbons and a paper plate. Oh.
Cara: Excuse me. Hey.
Cara: How are you?
Griffin: How are you?
Cara: Hi, Mami. I'm so glad you decided to come. Thank you.
Mrs. Castillo: It doesn't mean I approve.
Cara: All right. You know what you can do? We're seated over there, if you want to just sit down, and I will meet you in just a minute.
Asher: I can clear the site, scour the net and try to find all the video footage and delete it. It might take a while, though, because once something goes viral, it can be in a lot of places. But I'll do it, if that's what you want.
J.R.: I don't care what she wants. You go ahead and do it anyway.
Colby: I know you, like, live to do whatever J.R. says.
Asher: Just tell me what you want.
Colby: Oh. Is this you pretending to care about me again? Am I gonna find out some really big secret?
Asher: Is that what this is about? No one told you about your mom and Damon, and so now you feel the need to tell everyone?
Colby: You lied to me, Asher.
Asher: No, I kept something from you, because I didn't want to hurt you.
Colby: I am hurt.
Asher: And I am sorry.
Colby: Ok. You are sorry. Everybody is so sorry for me. They're sorry that I was held hostage. They're sorry that they left me. They're sorry that I walked around looking like a complete idiot in front of everybody. You must think that --
Asher: I think that you've been kicked around more than anyone deserves. I will wipe that footage out. I will, if that's what you want me to do. However long it takes, I'll do it.
Colby: No. No, don't.
Kendall: I have to be at a bridal shower. This was -- ha ha! This was the place where Zach and I would hide the boys' Christmas presents. Yeah, we used to have so much fun packing everything in here. We would be so excited. We couldn't wait to see the boys' faces when they would tear the paper open. Now it's empty.
Kendall: Excuse me.
Diana: Hi, Mrs. Slater?
Diana: Hi. This is Mrs. Spence. I'm filling in for the school nurse at Spike's school.
Kendall: Is everything ok?
Diana: No reason to be alarmed. Spike's complaining of a stomachache. I think you should come and take him home.
Kendall: Ok. Yes, of course. I'll be right there. Thank you. It's a good thing we took separate cars. Spike has a stomachache, so I have to go to his school and go get him.
Ricky: Oh, really? I'll be happy to drive you.
Kendall: No, no. I'll be fine, really. I appreciate that, though. I got to get going. Oh. Wait. The lights. The lights.
Ricky: You know what? Go take care of Spike. I'll turn off the lights for you.
Kendall: Are you sure?
Ricky: Yeah. Please, go, go, go.
Kendall: All right. Thank you. I'll see you later.
Ricky: All right.
Tad: What was that? I was counting on you. Jesse, I know this whole wedding thing is a little quick. But, you know --
Jesse: Quick. Insane. Something's off, Tad. Is she pregnant?
Tad: God, no.
Jesse: What do you mean? It's not like it couldn't happen. What's going on? What's the story? Tell me. What's going on?
Tad: Would you do me a favor? Would you stop thinking like a cop for just five minutes?
Jesse: Don't make me lock you up to stop you from doing something you're gonna regret.
Tad: That I'm gonna regret? Do you regret marrying Angela?
Jesse: Not the same thing.
Tad: Answer the question.
Jesse: It's not the same thing. Never regret marrying --
Tad: Do me a favor. Think back to when you first saw Angela. Ok? Angela Baxter: Young, beautiful, the world was still cooling. Ok? You knew then and there. You didn't have to think about it, right?
Jesse: I was 16.
Tad: Yeah, and I'm not.
Jesse: We're the same age, Tad.
Tad: Exactly, Jesse. That's what I'm saying. Think about it. Look at my life. You had a ringside seat, you know? All those years, all those mistakes, the bad choices, the bad karma, an entire truckload of missed opportunities. That's what I'm trying to tell you. I look at Cara, and I know that she's the one. I don't want to think it to death. I don't want to beat it to death with questions. I just want to go for it.
Jesse: You even know this girl?
Tad: Do you hear yourself? You're the one that stands in my living room every week and tells me to get my aging ass out there again! Now I finally want to do it, and this is what I get? I'm sorry that we don't have the kind of history that you and Angela do.
Jesse: There's history there: Hers with Jake.
Tad: What we have together works.
Jesse: No second thoughts?
Jesse: What does Jake think about this?
Tad: He's behind us every step of the way.
Jesse: You know what, Tad? I'm not gonna lie to you. I've known you way too long. Something ain't right. But if this is making you as happy as you say it is, if Cara is it, then by all means, brother, float your boat.
Tad: So you're gonna stand up for me and be my best man tomorrow?
Tad: I'll take that as a yes. Come on.
Jake: I don't need to keep the ring. I don't want to keep the ring, but I don't want to throw the ring away. There's got to be something we can do to -- something to do -- you know.
Amanda: Maybe somebody could use it.
Jake: Exactly. You know what? There's a kid in Accounting. I overheard him talking about his girlfriend, wanted to pop the question, but he couldn't afford a ring.
Amanda: Oh. That's perfect.
Jake: Sorry. Ohh. It's this bachelor auction thing I got myself involved with. I got to go take care -- I'll tell you what. I'll offer this to the kid in Accounting, and I'll see you at home.
Amanda: All right -- for our first night in our styling new room.
Jake: I can't wait. I can't wait. No, I mean I really can't wait. I haven't slept. Tad snores like I don't know what.
Amanda: I don't snore.
Jake: No, you don't -- well, a little bit.
Amanda: Does this mean you're not mad at me anymore for turning Cara in to Immigration?
Jake: You wouldn't have done it if you felt secure with us. So I can't wait to get you home to our new bedroom and show you how solid we really are. I got to go.
Colby: I can't believe how many comments there are on my video. Look, look. This girl says, "My boyfriend had sex with my mother, too." She's exactly like me.
Colby: And look at this person. She says, "I thought I was the only person this ever happened to. Sorry you're going through this freak show nightmare. But hearing you let loose -- way to go. Wish I could. At least I don't feel bad anymore."
Asher: Sounds like a thumbs-up to me.
Colby: Yeah. And this girl -- she says, "Ever since I heard your story, I finally have the courage to stand up for myself." Hmm. And this girl -- she says, "Most girls are phony poseurs pretending their lives are perfect, but you're real. You're honest. Can you come to Tulsa and rip my ex a new one?"
Asher: It looks like you have fans.
Colby: I have fans. Not all the comments are nice, but most of them are, and they say that they want to hear more from me.
Asher: Ah. Look at this one. "What your mom did was nasty, but what you did rocks. Instead of staying quiet, you had the guts to put it out there. Wish I had a friend like you."
Colby: What is she gonna think of my guts if I take the video down?
Asher: So I'm guessing that you might want to leave it up in all its glory? But what if your mom sees?
Cara: "Wow" is right.
Opal: Too racy for a future mom-in-law?
Cara: Ha ha!
Opal: Just trying to keep it real.
Mrs. Castillo: Cara said that Tad's mother was coming in from Florida.
Opal: Oh. I'm Tad's biological mama. Ruthie, who's coming in from Florida -- she adopted him, bless her soul.
Krystal: Tad has two mothers.
Opal: Yep. That is true. Ahem. That started way back when I was still with Tad's evil daddy, Ray Gardner. That S.O.B. -- he couldn't keep his fists to himself and ended up in the slammer.
Tad: Hey. Hi.
Opal: Hey there!
Tad: Did I miss all the fun?
Krystal: Actually, I think it's just starting.
Mrs. Castillo: Who is that?
Tad: Just a friend. Have a cupcake. What is this?
Liza: I called J.R., and he said that you might be here.
Tad: Why didn't you just call me? It's not ticking. What is it?
Liza: It is a -- it's a peace offering. I hope that you and Cara will be very happy together.
Tad: You actually sound like you mean that.
Liza: And you're surprised. I don't blame you. After everything that I've done, I know you're surprised that I still have any decency left in me.
Tad: No, I'm not. I know you do.
Kathy: Hey, Liza? Look. It's Colby.
Colby's voice: I thought that we were in love, and then he cheated on me. It wasn't like it was some random sorority girl. That would just be pathetic. Some drunken skank -- that I could deal with. But no. He slept with my mother.
Liza: Oh, my God.
Jake: What's up?
Griffin: What's up?
Jake: Is there a problem?
Griffin: No. I was just checking if a delivery came in.
Jake: Hmm. Excuse me if I'm a little on edge. Someone's been helping themselves to our drugs.
Griffin: That sucks.
Jake: It does. I was hoping to catch the person before Angie comes back to work. You haven't seen anybody -- like, anything suspicious, have you?
Griffin: No. Nothing that I can think of.
Jake: All right.
Griffin: Tomorrow's the big day, huh? I assume you'll be there for your brother?
Jake: I guess the way you'll be there for your sister.
Griffin: I finally get the chance. First wedding was a big mystery.
Kendall: What are you doing?
Ricky: I really wish you hadn't come back here.
Ricky: I thought you went to pick up Spike.
Kendall: Yeah. The weirdest thing -- I got to the school, and nobody knew anything about a stomachache. I went to his classroom, and Spike was fine.
Ricky: Wow. That's strange.
Kendall: Yeah, it is a little strange, but the nurses think they just got him mixed up with another boy. So --
Ricky: I'm glad he's ok.
Kendall: Yeah, thanks. Me, too. So you still haven't told me why you -- why are you still here?
Ricky: My phone. My phone. When I got out to the car, it wasn't in my pocket. So I guess I must've dropped it somewhere.
Kendall: Oh. Let me help you look for it.
Ricky: Really? Thank you. Got it. It's right here.
Kendall: That was fast.
Ricky: Yeah. Hey, I need to get back to my church, and you need to get to that bridal shower.
Kendall: Actually, I'd like to stay here for a little while longer -- alone, alone, if you don't mind.
Ricky: I really don't think that'd be such a good idea.
Griffin: No, it's not.
Opal: What in tarnation would make Colby say such a thing?
Opal: It doesn't make any sense! Why is she spouting off on the Internet about how her mama took a roll in the hay with her boy --
Opal: Oh, my God. It's true, isn't it?
Krystal: So that's why Damon had to leave town so soon?
Tad: Pretty much.
Opal: Now, I know they say "Like mother, like daughter," but I don't think they meant this. You should be ashamed of yourself!
Tad: No, wait.
Liza: No, please. Just let me go.
Opal: Wait a minute. So you knew about this?
Tad: Later. Ok?
Opal: It is one thing that that old Marian put her cougar claws into you when the two of you were dating, but the fact that she would then go after your son --
Tad: For God's sake, Ma, enough is enough! Put a sock in it!
Mrs. Castillo: Dios mio.
Tad: Mrs. Castillo, you have my deepest apologies. I don't know what to say. It was a long, long, long time ago.
Cara: She's gonna get over it, ok?
Mrs. Castillo: I will?
Cara: Of course. Because we've all made mistakes, right? Whatever mistakes Tad has done in the past, it was a long time ago. It's over. He's going to be an excellent husband.
Mrs. Castillo: I need to lie down.
Colby: Who cares what my mother thinks?
Asher: I'm not taking her side, but the Internet -- that's a lot of people. Like, everyone.
Colby: She's gonna get exactly what she deserves.
Asher: She might be getting it right now.
Jake: This place looks amazing. So do you.
Amanda: I am so happy to be home with my husband. It has been a long time. And I finally feel like things are getting back to the way they used to be, the way they should be.
Jake: Well, you have nothing to worry about. Nothing. You understand that?
Amanda: I'm starting to, but I could use a little more convincing.
Jake: I'll see what I can do.
Singer: Ooh more than soul connection I am caught and under your spell
Cara: Necesito poquito tiempo con Tad, ok, por favor? I'm so sorry.
Tad: No, it's not her fault. I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around it. 24 hours from now, you and me --
Cara: Look, if you don't -- I understand. It's good.
Kendall: Ricky and I were talking. I was showing him our boat.
Griffin: And you thought, what, let's go for a cruise? Did it even occur to you that bringing her out here in the cold could jeopardize her health?
Kendall: We weren't going anywhere. He was actually making me feel better. He was helping me remember all the great things about Zach.
Ricky: You don't have to defend yourself or me, ok?
Griffin: If you needed to leave the house, why didn't you just go to my sister's bridal shower?
Ricky: You're not her keeper.
Griffin: All right. Let's go. I'm taking you home. Come on.
Kendall: Excuse me. I will drive myself home, ok, in my own car.
Griffin: You shouldn't even be driving.
Ricky: It's that parishioner again. I should go.
Kendall: Thank you. This was a great idea.
Griffin: Kendall, you have a problem, and it's not just your health.
Kendall: If you say "Ricky" --
Griffin: It's me. You still don't trust me.
Colby: What do you think? How long till I get my own reality show?
Liza: You're really making a joke out of this?
Colby: No. The joke's on you: Throwing yourself at my boyfriend?
Liza: Ok. So this is your payback?
Colby: All I know is that this video going viral is like the first time I haven't felt alone after what you did to me, like I am not the only person who hasn't been slammed by somebody who was supposed to love them.
Liza: I do love you, Colby. Ok. Ok. You got your little rush of fame. Now go and take this video down.
Colby: Like hell I will.
Kendall: Of course, I trust you.
Griffin: If you did, you wouldn't be out here.
Kendall: What does one thing have to do with the other?
Griffin: I made you a promise to keep you alive. But every time I turn around, it's as if you're doing something to make that impossible.
Kendall: Ok. I'm here on the boat. It's not like I jumped in the water.
Griffin: You might as well have. You're running around in the cold. You're ignoring my medical advice. It's obvious you don't believe I can help you.
Kendall: Griffin, I told you before the surgery that I trust you with my life.
Griffin: And I trust you with mine. I shared with you a secret that could put me away for a long time. Nobody knows that I'm stealing drugs from the hospital.
Kendall: Not even Cara?
Griffin: She'd understand that the drugs are going to people who need them, but I can't get her involved. As soon as Zach's casino money comes in, I'll pay the hospital back for the drugs, and that'll be that. I told you that secret for one reason: So you'd know you could trust me.
[Ricky listens in from the doorway]
Kendall: For the millionth time, I do trust you.
Griffin: Then start taking care of yourself. Don't make me break my promise.
Liza: Colby, what, you think you're doing some sort of, what, community service here? Right? Helping other women who've also been cheated on? No, Colby, no. What you're doing is you're opening yourself up to more humiliation.
Colby: Maybe I am. But it was worth it, because now everybody knows who you really are.
Tad: Come on. Don't get me wrong. I'm not having second thoughts. Not one.
Cara: Ok. So we're doing this?
Tad: Yeah. Tomorrow evening, Mr. and Mrs. Thaddeus Martin. Sorry about the handle, but you'll get used to it. Oh, hey, I forgot to ask you. Do you want rice or rose petals? I didn't ask, and it kind of goes with the dinner.
Cara: You can surprise me on that one.
Tad: I'll do that.
Cara: Wait. I'm sorry. I have to thank you again and again and again for stepping up in such a huge way.
Tad: Listen, you should know something about me. In my life I've done a lot of things. Unfortunately, one of them is profoundly selfish, and it's taken the last couple of decades for life to pound that out of the fender. And in all those years, I've never met a woman who was willing to sacrifice everything she had -- her career, her safety, her happiness -- for the sake of somebody else, somebody I love. There's nobody on this earth I'd rather do something like this for. So you know what? Mami and me will always be like this.
Amanda: I feel so close to you right now. I love you so much.
Jake: I love you. You know what I think we're also gonna love?
Jake: Our new shower. Want to take a shower with me, or do you want to eat first?
Amanda: Go warm it up for me.
Jake: Yeah? Ok.
Amanda: Jake? Jake, your phone's ringing.
