Kendall: We're getting married right now?
Ricky: I knew you'd be surprised.
Kendall: Uh, Mom, you're a part of this?
Jane: Surprise! Ha! Oh, I hope you didn't think that I was gonna share my big day for a double wedding?
Griffin: What the hell?
Bianca: If I'd known, I would've -- I am just as surprised as you are. If you're not ready --
Ricky: Of course, she's ready. Tell them. Tell them you can't wait to be my wife.
Krystal: Uh-oh. What's wrong?
Tad: It's nothing I want to be bothering you with.
Krystal: What do you mean, bother? We've got two kids. We share a house post-divorce. I think we kind of flew past that "bother" issue a long time ago. So what is it, hmm? A case? Uh-oh. Is it something risky? Is it dangerous?
Tad: I'm in danger, all right. Big time.
Krystal: Maybe I can help you out, give you a hand. Just tell me what it is. Maybe I can help.
Tad: Can you keep me from falling in love with my wife?
Jake: It's -- a little early for Happy Hour, isn't it?
Cara: No. Maybe I'm celebrating.
Jake: Right. That's all over your face.
Cara: Why is it the ones we love are the ones that hurt the most?
Jake: I don't have the answer to that.
Amanda: Oh, excuse me. Do you know when my test results will be ready?
Nurse: I promise you I'll let you know as soon as we have them. If you're not here, I'll text them.
Ricky: I know it's out of the blue, but I woke up this morning and I thought, "You know what? Why not?" We love each other, right? So why wait? You, me, and the people that you love most in the world. And all you have to do is say "I do," and we'll be husband and wife.
Griffin: Your family's there, ok? They'll support you. Just tell him you hate surprises, ok? Call it off.
Kendall: I can't do that.
Ricky: Can't do what?
Tad: What kind of insensitive jerk asks his ex-wife to give romantic advice about his fake one?
Krystal: The kind who leads with his heart and doesn't think anybody's looking.
Tad: I'll stick with "insensitive jerk."
Krystal: Who happens to be one of my favorite people in the whole world. So come on. It's me here. Spit it out.
Tad: Don't laugh.
Krystal: I won't laugh. Ha ha ha ha!
Tad: Nice one. Thank you. Off to a roaring start. Oh, no, it gets better. You're gonna love this. You'll be rolling on the floor. This is a ticket for Cara's dry cleaning, which I volunteered to pick up. Which is a good thing, because it's right next door to the shoe store where she's having her favorite pumps fixed.
Krystal: Mm-hmm. You're gonna pick those up, too, right?
Tad: While I was at it. I mean, it's -- this came from the video store. We are planning an all-night horror marathon, popcorn and all.
Krystal: Well, the horrors.
Tad: It's not funny. You know as well as I do I detest horror films. For some reason, I haven't been this excited since you and I scored those tickets to Cher's Farwell Tour.
Krystal: Heh heh heh! It looks to me like you care for Cara in a way that is not so "green card marriage."
Tad: And, hence, you have my problem. Because I'm an idiot for dancing around the edge of the possibility of the thought that it could ever be more than that.
Krystal: Honey, by the looks of those stubs there and those DVDs and the fact that you are breaking your back to help your brother, I think you have danced well into that area.
Tad: Which is why I'm a total fool. It's an impossibility. It's inconceivable. She's her, I'm me, and there's Jake, and the fact is she's never gonna love anybody but him.
Cara: It's Griffin's birthday today.
Jake: He'll make it home.
Cara: When? As much as he talked about wanting to get back into the field, I could tell he was starting to settle down here. Thank you. And between you and me, he was actually starting to care about somebody. He was -- he was starting to open his heart up, which is really unheard of for him.
Jake: Try not to get upset.
Cara: Just stop for a second. And I actually felt like she was really, you know, feeling -- it shows you what I know about true love. And you know what I think I should do? I should take a lesson from Kendall and let go and move on. Ahem.
Jake: Maybe I'll join you.
Jake: Colin, let me get -- just give me my E.R. special.
Cara: "E.R. special?" I like that.
Cara: Yeah. Does it come with, like, an I.V. or something?
Jake: They should wheel an I.V. out. They should name this place "The Emergency Room."
Cara: I like that, yeah.
Ricky: What's wrong? Isn't this what you want?
Griffin: Tell him you don't.
Kendall: I do. I do want to marry you. But I --
Ricky: But what? Come on. What's the problem?
Griffin: I said "play along," not "play house." Call it off.
Kendall: It's just so sudden.
Bianca: So sudden that Uncle Jack isn't even here.
Jane: Oh, he's been held up at the courthouse, but he'll be here.
Bianca: Then maybe we should wait.
Ricky: No, no. We've waited long enough. What I mean is Kendall and I have been looking forward to this. You want this as much as I do, right?
Kendall: Yes, of course. Of course, I do. I just -- it would feel so much better if Jack could be here.
Jane: Oh, Jack won't mind if you go ahead. He'll understand. There's a lavish little reception in it for you. I called the Valley Inn.
Kendall: You're kidding.
Jane: No. Step one is not being afraid to take the leap. Who knows that better than I do?
Griffin: Some leaps could kill you, Kendall. Stall for time. Say you want to wait for Jack.
Kendall: I know what to say. I mean, I know what I want, and I want to marry you. I do. But it just doesn't feel right when Spike and Ian aren't even here. They don't even know.
Ricky: I thought you might feel that way. Which is why I told Bianca's nanny to bring the boys over -- with Gaby and Miranda, of course.
Bianca: You should've let me know.
Ricky: It was part of the surprise. So, you see, when the boys get here, we'll be married, and we can tell Spike and Ian together as husband and wife.
Griffin: Stop this, Kendall! Stop it now!
Ricky: Kendall, I thought about everything, because all I can think about is you and being your husband. Reverend, I think we're ready.
Jake: It's the hospital. Same old drama. I'm in the middle of trying to replace two superb doctors, so if you know anybody, just -- and I'm picking up the slack, and Frankie's working doubles. It's just like that.
Cara: I'm sure Griffin's fan club is missing his handsome face, right?
Jake: Hmm. Half the nursing staff is on a hunger strike over that pretty boy. Any luck getting his name cleared or --
Cara: Actually, Tad is working nonstop to prove his innocence. So if anybody can do it, it'd be my husband.
Jake: Hmm. Yes, that is what it says on the license, right? The marriage license.
Cara: It's more than that, actually. It really is. I mean, he got me the job at the clinic. He knows how I like my coffee. He gets my dry cleaning for me. He gets me. I get him.
Jake: I think that's what married people do.
Cara: Right. And we do.
Jake: For each other. That's nice. It's good.
Jake: I want you to be happy at the end of the day, you know?
Cara: I want you to be happy, even if it takes an E.R. special to get you there. This is soda.
Jake: Yes, it's soda with a little twist.
Cara: Are you, like, pretending to drink with me?
Jake: What do you mean, pretending? I'm a grownup. I don't pretend with people.
Cara: I don't need someone to hold my hand. Do you get that? So if you want to sit here and drink your soda, then I'm out of here. I'm sorry.
Jake: It's ok.
Krystal: Let's make a pact, ok?
Tad: What kind of pact?
Krystal: I will help you keep your distance from Cara if you help me do the same thing with Jackson.
Tad: Is that what you want?
Krystal: It's not like I have a choice really. I mean, you know, Jack's got his hands full right now with the one and only La Kane.
Tad: So what? With her track record, it's not like the warranty is all that great. So you're just gonna walk away?
Krystal: Oh, I think that's where the smart money is, yeah. Come on, Tad. He just rescued her from being kidnapped. She's vulnerable. He's not even gonna leave her side.
Tad: But how do you walk away when it feels so real?
Tad: I'm just saying.
Krystal: I -- we made a pact, right? Come on, now. You keep your distance, right?
Tad: Ok -- as far as that goes.
Krystal: Hey. What can I do you for?
Amanda: Can I get a coffee? Oh, make it decaf.
Krystal: Sure. Is everything ok?
Amanda: Oh, yeah, everything's great. Couldn't be better.
Tad: How's my favorite nephew?
Amanda: Oh, Trevor -- he's great. He's the best.
Tad: Yeah? Really? Is he texting already? I knew he was smart, but, boy, that Martin blood really kicks in. Those genes --
Amanda: No text.
Krystal: I'll get you some coffee, fresh pot, ok?
Tad: What is it? Is it you and Jake? Something happen?
Amanda: Jake and I, we're, you know --
Amanda: Not so -- not so great. I can't lose him, Tad. I can't.
Reverend: We are gathered here today in the presence of these witnesses to join Ricardo Torres and Kendall Hart Slater --
Griffin: Don't do this, Kendall. Ok, I know what marriage means to you, what your marriage to Zach meant to you. It can't be a game, not for you. You know that, don't you?
Ricky: My life has been kind of a pilgrimage from darkness to light. There are things that I regret, things that I'm not proud of, and at times I was afraid that that darkness might overwhelm me. But then I found you, and when you look at me, there is no darkness. There are no shadows, just light and joy and the promise of a lifetime full of happiness.
Griffin: You can stop this, Kendall. We can find another way.
Kendall: If only --
Ricky: No, no, no. No ifs, Kendall. Because I vow to spend the rest of my life making you happy. We're soul mates. I know that we'll be together forever.
Reverend: Kendall, you may say your vows now.
Kendall: I'm sorry. I don't really know what to say. I didn't plan anything.
Ricky: That's ok. Just speak from your heart.
Bianca: I have an idea. Why don't we just wait for Uncle Jack? Mom said he would be here soon. That way, Kendall has time to think about what she really wants to say.
Jane: But, Kendall, you speak so beautifully. I just know you're gonna find the right words to tell Ricky how much you love him.
Kendall: Right. Thank you, Mom.
Griffin: Listen to Bianca, ok? This is your chance. Take a time-out.
Reverend: Is there a problem?
Ricky: There is no problem. Right?
Reverend: If the bride needs more time --
Ricky: We don't need more time. It's all planned out, including the honeymoon.
Kendall: The honeymoon?
Ricky: Heh. It was gonna be a surprise, ok? Jack has offered the yacht. We're going on our own private cruise. So there's no problem. Right?
[Knock on door]
Jack: Hi. I got Erica's message. What's the big surprise?
Jane: Surprise! My daughter is marrying the man she loves.
Jack: Yeah, that's a big surprise.
Ricky: Great. Everyone's here. Reverend, let's seal the deal.
Griffin: Don't do this, Kendall.
Kendall: I'm ready. I am ready to speak from my heart.
Tad: I could've sworn that you and Jake were back on track. What's the problem?
Amanda: It's really hard to explain. I just --
Tad: Well, try.
Amanda: I thought when you and Cara got married, that things would get better with Jake, and -- especially since things have been going so well between you two.
Tad: They have?
Amanda: You guys are really starting to seem like a real couple.
Tad: We do?
Amanda: It's obvious to everyone. You're good for Cara, she's good for you. She's so happy when she's with you. And I just want Jake and I to be back to the way that we were.
Tad: You will. You have to. I mean, um, come on. Let's look at the facts, all right? It's perfectly obvious to everybody in Pine Valley you two are crazy in love with each other. It's almost embarrassing to Martin family lore. Oh, come on, sweetie. Keep the faith, all right? You just keep working at it, all right? Just work hard at it, and it'll all be fine.
Amanda: Ohh. You sound so sure.
Tad: I am. I know things. You two are a team. Besides, have you looked at yourself in the mirror lately? Jake would have to be stupid or a hairstylist to mess this up.
Amanda: Ha ha!
Krystal: Ok. A little decaf here is gonna fix you right up.
Amanda: I think Tad fixed me already.
Tad: Oh, come on. I'm just stating the facts.
Amanda: And the facts are that I am married to the greatest guy ever, and I will do whatever it takes to make my marriage work.
Tad: Good girl.
Amanda: Excuse me. I'm expecting a text.
Tad: Yeah, we noticed.
Krystal: Yeah, go ahead.
Amanda: Thank you for the coffee.
Krystal: You're welcome. Mm-hmm. So much for pulling back.
Kendall: You said you've been on a pilgrimage. So have I, and it's led me to you.
Griffin: Don't do this, Kendall, ok? I'll figure something out. I won't let him hurt you. Trust me.
Kendall: I trust you, because you've shown me that I can, and now I need you to trust me.
Ricky: I do.
Kendall: Good. Then you'll understand what I'm about to say to you. I love that you surprised me like this. I know you went through so much trouble, because you love me. But I want, Ricky, the day that I become your wife to be everything that I have dreamed about.
Ricky: You're calling it off.
Kendall: No, I just -- I need a little more time.
Ricky: Kendall, come on. We've waited long enough.
Kendall: I want our wedding day to be a day that we never forget, my gift to you.
Jane: It'll be the party of the century -- I mean, until ours.
Ricky: I can't talk you out of this, can I?
Kendall: It's a beautiful day, right? You said so yourself. So why don't we take the yacht? It's ready to go. We can go and have a little cruise, just the two of us. Just me and the man I love.
Cara: You know what? I don't need you to catch me, ok? I certainly don't need you pretending to drink.
Jake: I'm not pretending --
Cara: This is soda, Jake.
Jake: That's what I order when I'm on call. Ok? You don't believe me?
Cara: I believe you. I didn't --
Jake: Watch this. Colin, can I -- don't say one word. What do I order when I'm on call? Don't say anything, please.
Colin: The E.R. special.
Jake: Oh, is that what it's called? Thank you very much.
Cara: You could've told me, and I wouldn't have been so upset.
Jake: Look, I know what you're like when you're two drinks in, ok? You're a bit of a lightweight.
Cara: I am not a lightweight.
Jake: Look, two drinks in, you become three sheets to the wind. And I'd also be lying if I didn't say it makes me a little nervous, because things could get crazy. You could do something a little loco.
Cara: I don't need to drink to do that -- hey.
Jake: That's true. You don't need to drink to do that.
Cara: I don't want to lean on you, Jake. I don't want to lean on you any more than you want to lean on me. So -- I see you. I see there's something going on with you, and so look at me. I'm getting out. Bye.
Jake: I apologize if you think that I'm leaning on you, because I didn't mean that, ok? What should happen here is I should go back to work, and you should go home to your husband. That's what you should do.
Tad: She doesn't have to. I'm already here. So, hi.
Jake: Hi. I'm gonna go back to the hospital.
Tad: Before you do, I just ran into Amanda, and she seems not happy.
Jake: That is not good.
Tad: I tried talking to her, but I think the shoulder she really wants to cry on is yours.
Jake: Yeah. I'm gonna go home as soon as I'm done at the hospital.
Tad: Hey, you don't have to worry about it. I'll get it.
Tad: How bad can it be? What is it, the E.R. special?
Jake: Exactly what it is.
Cara: Oh, my God.
Jake: See you.
Tad: Are you ok?
Cara: Yeah, I'm fine. I should've just -- it's the one I should've stopped at -- I'm sorry.
Tad: You got nothing to apologize for.
Cara: No, I miss him. It's my brother's birthday, and I just --
Tad: You needed a drink.
Cara: Three, actually. Three shots of -- ohh. I should've stopped at zero. Zero would've been good, you know. Thank you for trying to clear my brother.
Tad: I'm not just trying. It's gonna happen. Trust me.
Cara: I do.
Amanda: Do you think Tad can make Cara happy?
Amanda: Maybe they'll become a real couple. That would be great, right, for everyone.
Krystal: Yeah, yeah. As long as they find their way together in their own time and not because someone's trying to make it happen.
Jane: I'm thinking of a theme wedding for you, something really classy. I know Ricky is disappointed, but we're gonna make it up to him.
Ricky: You didn't like my surprise.
Bianca: I'm just looking out for my sister.
Ricky: That makes two of us.
Kendall: I have a cruise to pack for.
Jack: That sounds like our cue to leave.
Jane: Yes, yes, of course. And I just want you to enjoy every second of romance on the high seas.
Kendall: Thanks, Mom.
Ricky: Hey. Thank you so much for your help.
Jane: Oh, my pleasure. And you'll be really glad you waited. I promise.
Ricky: So what can I do to help?
Kendall: Uh, you can let me pack and meet me on the yacht.
Ricky: Ok. I will have the champagne chilling.
Ricky: All right.
Kendall: Good. All right. Will you look after Spike and Ian?
Bianca: Of course. Yeah. But, Kendall, you and Ricky alone on a boat? Are you sure about this?
Kendall: Bianca, please. I have to do this, ok? I can't let anyone else that I love get hurt.
Bianca: Promise me you'll be careful.
Kendall: I promise.
Bianca: Ok. Francoise will be here any minute with the kids. I will wait outside. Oh, God, please don't do anything crazy.
Kendall: I won't. I won't.
Griffin: Listen to your sister.
Kendall: I forgot that you can hear every word I say.
Griffin: What are you planning on doing?
Kendall: I'm gonna end it.
Kendall: I have to, Griff. I'm running out of time and excuses, ok? He's getting suspicious.
Griffin: But you on a boat with Torres is not a safe option.
Kendall: I'm sick of it, Griff. I need to get the proof that he killed Zach, and I'm going to get it.
Griffin: I know how badly you want to end this, ok, but this isn't the way. Diana Holden was alone with Ricky when she ended up dead.
Kendall: I'll be careful.
Griffin: Wait a little longer. Let me help you.
Kendall: Griff, you've helped me enough, ok? You have helped me plenty. Thank you.
Griffin: Kendall? Damn it.
Jane: And instead of rice, we can throw CZs or even glitter. And then we should have this wedding reception outside. We should have the whole wedding outside because the weather's been so beautiful. Don't you think so? Oh, and the cake. I have always wanted to have a butter cream cake with flowers just spilling over the top. I can't wait to get started.
Jack: You'd think you had never planned a wedding before.
Jane: No. No. Just that I think that I'm feeling inspired, because we're gonna be planning our own very soon. Every time I look at this ring, I realize how lucky I am.
Jack: I think I'm the lucky one. Which means I probably won't need this -- lucky charm, huh?
Jane: My goodness. Where did you find this?
Jack: I found it in our bedroom, oddly enough.
Jane: Oh. Of course. I must've dropped it.
Jack: Are you telling me that thing is yours?
Jane: Yeah. Who else?
Jack: Honey, you're not normally a big fan of cheap, plastic trinkets.
Jane: I actually found it in that room that I was held hostage in. You know, I -- I would just hold onto it as tight as I could, and I would just wish that I would see you again, and my wish came true.
Jack: Did you tell Jesse about that, because it could be a lead.
Jane: No. No. I mean, if my captors knew that I was holding onto it, they would mock me for it.
Jack: Right, but you never know what the police might turn up with that thing.
Jane: All right. I'll show it to him.
Krystal: Hey, boss. Glad you're here. Hi. Dolger vs. Dolger. I think Dolger needs a little handholding there.
Jack: Oh, gee, I am shocked by that news. If you will excuse me?
Krystal: Yeah. Sure. Listen, Erica, I am really, really sorry that things got a little heated the last time you were here. I just hope you know you have nothing to worry about. Obviously Jack is just over the moon with you, and he always has been -- he always will be.
Jane: Thank you for saying that. But if you ever try to steal him, I'll kick your ass into next week.
Krystal: What did you say?
Cara: I'm such an idiot.
Tad: Why? Because you miss your brother?
Cara: Yeah, I miss him. It just seems like everybody else has no problem moving on with their lives. And me? Here I am. I'm wallowing, you know?
Cara: Yeah, wallowing. And then Jake -- he shows up, and he's --
Tad: Wallowing. And the whole thing's one big wallow. Under the circumstances, I don't think you should beat yourself up. Not for being human. I mean, we're all trying to do the best we can. We're stuck with our feelings no matter what our head tells us.
Cara: Thanks for understanding. So did you find, like, a lead or what?
Tad: I -- I don't think I should go into the details, but, look. I swear to you, everything I know, everything I feel tells me that he's gonna get exonerated.
Cara: That's terrific.
Tad: We still got a ways to go, but it's gonna happen.
Cara: Ok. It's hope. It's the hope. That's the best gift my brother could get.
Tad: Yeah, except for maybe a batch of your tamales.
Cara: Heh heh! Are you sure there's nothing else in there?
Tad: Hmm. Pretty sure -- except for the part where I get to spend the night with you.
Amanda: This is Amanda Martin. You just texted me my results. Are you sure that it's negative? Can you test it again, because I was so sure that I was pregnant. So -- I understand. Ok. Uh-huh. Thank you.
Bianca: Ok, let me just find my purse, and then we will go get ice cream. Ok?
Bianca: Ok. Be right back.
Ricky: Hey, you. The wedding's been postponed.
Miranda: What wedding?
Ricky: Your Aunt Kendall and me. You know what? I think that you would make the most perfect flower girl in the world. Would you like that?
Ricky: Yay. Come here. Ha ha!
Bianca: Miranda! I'm sorry if she's bothering you.
Ricky: No, no, no. No bother.
Bianca: I thought you left.
Ricky: I left my cell phone, probably in the kitchen.
Bianca: Hey, sit down for a minute. I know you like him, but from now on, I want you to just stay away from him. Ok?
Miranda: But he's so nice.
Bianca: I know. But just promise me you will, ok?
Miranda: Ok, Mommy.
Bianca: Ok. And don't mention anything to your little sister or to your cousins about a wedding. Ok? Ok. Let's go.
Kendall: I thought we agreed to meet at the yacht.
Krystal: You're gonna -- you're gonna kick my ass? I'm sorry. I mean, you're usually a little more subtle than that and a lot less insecure.
Jane: I was held hostage for quite a few weeks. I went into survival mode. I learned to fight for my life.
Jack: Let me call you right back, all right? Is everything all right here?
Jane: Of course, it is. Isn't it, Krystal?
Krystal: Oh, yeah. Huh.
Jane: I am just feeling a headache coming on. I don't know. It just must be all the excitement, because I'm not myself quite yet.
Jack: Ok. I'll take you home.
Jane: You always know exactly what I need.
Jack: Excuse us.
Jake: So I was at the hospital, and I see that Madison got some flowers, because she and Ryan lost their baby. And it just hit me all over again, made me want to run home and just hug you, hug Trevor.
Amanda: We're so lucky.
Jake: Very. And even though I'm mad that you fibbed and said you were on the pill -- you know, whatever's meant to be will be. If we're gonna have this baby, then that's what was meant to be. Right? Yeah. What is it? The lab called you?
Amanda: No. I'm still waiting to hear, but I have a feeling it's gonna be good results.
Jake: It's gonna be great.
Cara: What do you mean, spend the night with me?
Tad: What do you mean, what do I mean?
Cara: What do you mean?
Tad: Nothing major. I thought maybe you, me, a tarp, bucket of Jell-O, a couple of outfits. I'm thinking little Bo Peep tonight. It's a joke. You can breathe. You want me to call 911?
Cara: No. No.
Tad: I was talking about sitting on the couch, watching TV, screaming our heads off at bad horror movies. And then just falling asleep eating popcorn.
Cara: It's a date, definitely.
Tad: Because for a moment --
Cara: I was thinking something else, I got to be honest with you. Phew!
Kendall: What are you doing here? If anyone sees you, that's not good.
Griffin: I'll take that risk if it stops you from going off alone with Ricky.
Kendall: Ricky is already getting suspicious, which makes him more of a threat to me and my boys. So I am ending this today.
Griffin: You have a plan?
Kendall: Yes. I'm gonna tell him I know he killed Zach.
Griffin: Are you crazy?
Kendall: And then I'm gonna tell him that it's all right and that I understand.
Griffin: You understand that he killed Zach? Who the hell would believe that, Kendall?
Kendall: Ricky will believe it, ok? I'll make him believe it. And as much as it will rip my heart out, I will tell him that I've made peace with it and that I've come to see the man he is, and that I love that man. And then once I convince Ricky of that, then he'll feel safe around me, and his guard will be down, and he'll be able to confess what he did. I'll have his confession on tape, and then we'll have all the evidence we need to put him in prison for life.
Griffin: What if he doesn't confess, huh? What if he thinks you're playing him, he gets violent, huh? What then?
Kendall: I can take care of myself.
Griffin: Come here.
Kendall: Griffin. It was Zach's. He kept for protection when we were at sea. Give it to me, please. Give it to me. Give it to me! Give me the gun! Griffin, I need it, please!
Griffin: I know exactly what you need.
Kendall: Are you kidding me? Put me down! This is not funny, Griffin! Put me down!
Bianca: Kendall? I got your text. The kids are saving some ice cream for you. Kendall? That's weird.
Ricky: Welcome aboard.
