Kendall: I did it, Zach. With Griffin's help, but I did it. I got justice for all of us. The man who killed you cannot hurt anyone ever again. I'm ready. I am ready to move on and move forward, and I am going to build Miranda Centers all over the world for you -- with Griffin's help, too. I mean, he can be a total pain in the ass, but there's no one I trust more.
Griffin's voice: I said I'd be there for you, and I will. It takes a lot of courage doing what you're doing.
Kendall: You know us Kane women -- we're tough. Do not mess with us or the people that we love.
Greenlee: Wait. It has to stay there.
Ryan: What's wrong with where it was?
Greenlee: Everything, apparently.
Ryan: But it's, like, totally in the way there.
Greenlee: Yeah, but if it's there, it gives the free flow of energy that maximizes our potential for love and happiness. Feng shui.
Ryan: Look, if moving furniture around was the answer, Greenlee, all we'd have to do is rearrange everybody's living rooms and the world would be at peace, right?
Greenlee: Could we just try it?
Ryan: Moving a chair around is not gonna help us, Greenlee.
Greenlee: With Emma at Denise's tonight, I thought that we could have dinner together. Does that sound good?
Ryan: Yeah, that sounds great. Sounds good. What about this one?
Greenlee: Southwest corner for sure.
Ryan: No, Greenlee, this is south over here. Right here.
Greenlee: Is this how it's gonna be? Everything is an argument, even a stupid chair?
Griffin: It's in the past, Cara. You know that. As long as it stays there --
Cara: And what if it didn't?
Griffin: Oh, no, Cara. Caracita.
Cara: No, we didn't -- we were interrupted. God, I wanted to. I wanted so badly to be with Jake. What kind of person am I?
Griffin: The kind that respects the house, keeps her promise. Jake's married. You're married to his brother.
Jake's voice: You love your wife. You love your family. Amanda and Trevor -- that's what's real. That's your life. That's your future. Cara is the past. She is the past. She is the past.
Tad: That's a nice clip. What are you running from?
Jake: I'm not running from anything. I'm just running. What's got you out here?
Tad: Just stuff.
Tad: Yeah. I got another lap to do.
Jake: Yeah. Getting yourself in shape for Cara?
Tad: No. Just getting in shape for dinner -- as in no cardio, no cheeseburger when I get back.
Jake: It's ok. Everybody can see it.
Tad: See what?
Jake: You don't have to pretend you're not exited to go home to your make-believe wife. Except she's not just a wife on paper anymore, right? She's someone you're having real feelings for?
Tad: Why shouldn't I want to get home to my pretend wife? She's adorable -- the energy, the smile, the tamales, the bad singing. What's not to want to get home to?
Jake: That's not what I'm talking about.
Tad: No, I guess it's not. The interesting thing is, why are you talking? I mean, you haven't said two words to me all week, and all of a sudden you want to talk about my feelings? You're Mr. Touchy-feely? That's a heck of a change-up, don't you think? As a doctor, you should know. You should get that looked at.
Jake: Really? Ok. I will.
Tad: And I'll finish my exercise.
Jake: Good. You want to know who sees it? Jesse sees it --
Tad: Jesse? What's Jesse got to do with anything? He's so crazy about Angie, he thinks everybody should be in love with his wife. And why shouldn't I care about Cara? That's the point. She's not some random chick I picked up to save from a couple of drug dealers, ok? I did it because she's important to you --
Jake: This is a non-answer. You're not the guy that talks about her ad nauseam? She's so good with the girls? I was just asking you a question, ok, from my heart. That's it. Forget it.
Tad: Ok, fine. You want an answer? How about this. You're right. You are 100% absolutely right. Now you happy, Jake? You satisfied? Somewhere between picking up her dry cleaning and the horror movie marathons, things changed for me. It's no longer a marriage of convenience. I admit it. I have some serious feelings for your ex-wife.
Cara: If anyone is to blame for what happened, it was me.
Griffin: And Jake.
Cara: I was crazed, ok? I couldn't get any information. I didn't know if you were dead or alive. I was ready to go to Afghanistan to find you myself. And he was here, and he was trying to help, and he was --
Griffin: Right. So one thing led to another? Ok, you were freaked out. You thought I was dead. And if Jake took advantage of you --
Cara: That's not what happened, Griff, ok? And we promised we're not gonna go there again.
Griffin: Cara, Pine Valley's a pretty small town. You're both doctors. You're in the same family, the same orbit. Do you really think you can live this close to each other and not give in to how you feel?
Cara: It's not gonna happen again, ok? It was a huge wake-up call.
Griffin: Messing with Jake could get you deported. It could cost you your life. You don't get a bigger wake-up call than that.
Jake: Does Cara know about this?
Tad: Jake, come on. I can barely admit it to myself. What the hell am I gonna say to Cara? The whole thing just kind of hit me out of nowhere, so --
Jake: Love can do that to you.
Tad: Yeah, it can. I didn't go looking for it. You believe me, right? You have to. I'm no fool. I know what I had with Dixie. That kind of thing is one in a million. Lightning doesn't strike twice. For the longest time I've had a hard time believing that I deserved another chance. But you asked, so here it is. If I thought I had a chance -- and I'm talking one in a million -- with Cara, I'd take it. But -- if we're putting it all out there, to be honest, my feelings for your ex-wife don't really matter here. Yours do. So now you answer the question. Things aren't over between you and Cara, are they?
Cara: I know Jake's got a family. I know there's a price on my head in Mexico. It was a mistake, ok? It was just one time.
Griffin: Maybe you and Jake miss that rush of the battle zone, the danger, the crazy action.
Cara: No, that's not true.
Griffin: What happens when you go back to the hospital, Cara?
Cara: I haven't made that decision.
Griffin: And when you do?
Cara: I can handle being around Jake.
Griffin: You're both doctors. You're gonna be working side-by-side with long hours, intense cases, crazy drama. What --
Cara: It's under control. And you know what? Whatever did or didn't happen between Jake and me, at least I let myself feel something. No, even if it was wrong, I'm not like you. I'm not hiding behind my profession!
Griffin: I'm not hiding.
Cara: Why is it easier for you to save the world than take one risk and save yourself?
Ryan: You can put the chair wherever you want. You can put it on the balcony, for all I care.
Greenlee: It's not just the chair. It's everything. I feel alone, even when we're in the same room together. We used to finish each other's sentences, and now we barely talk. And every time I do say something, I feel like it's the wrong thing.
Ryan: So do I. The wedding? I thought us getting remarried right away -- I thought that would make you happy.
Greenlee: How can I say "I do"? When we're in a room together, I can almost hear you thinking, "How could you?"
Ryan: I can't just turn off the grief --
Greenlee: I don't expect you to.
Ryan: Or just forget about the fact that you lied to me about the baby.
Greenlee: I just want a night, one night, to remind you why you fell in love with me, why we're together, and what we have together.
Ryan: I haven't forgotten why I fell in love with you.
Greenlee: I didn't know you were stopping by.
Kendall: Well, it was a spur-of-the-moment thing. Ian's with a friend, so it was just Spike and me, and I figured, why not?
Ryan: We're glad you came by. Look, Spike. I got all your favorite toys out. Go have fun.
Kendall: There's been so much going on. I wanted the boys to focus on family -- and me, too.
Greenlee: I was just telling Ryan how important family is.
Kendall: If you guys have something going on, we can totally leave --
Ryan: We were just planning, like, a quiet night at home.
Greenlee: Yeah. I was just gonna grab some dinner from ConFusion. Give me your order, and I'll tack it on to the order.
Kendall: Ok. That sounds great. He is a mac and cheese boy, and I'll have whatever you're having.
Greenlee: Great. I guess I'll go get the food.
Kendall: Ok. So? What's going on?
Kendall: Really? I get the distinct impression that I have spoiled Greenlee's plans.
Ryan: Like I said, we were planning a quiet night at home, but family just makes it better. It's no big deal. Hey, can I help you? What are you building?
Kendall: Ok. Speaking of family, then when are you guys planning your big wedding?
Ryan: Um, well, we're not.
Cara: Get back here. Look, I just want you to be happy, ok, and Kendall makes you happy.
Griffin: You safe makes me happy.
Cara: I'm safe, ok, so stop avoiding the best thing that's ever happened to you.
Griffin: I'm not.
Cara: You're the bravest guy I know, all right? But when it comes to love --
Griffin: I'm being smart, which is what I need you to be. You married a great guy.
Cara: You don't have to convince me of that. I know he's amazing. I adore Tad.
Griffin: I'm worried about you.
Cara: You spent your whole life being worried about me. Why don't you start worrying about yourself?
Cara: When I thought that you, you know -- I can't imagine my life without you. Just promise me that you're gonna stay here, that you're gonna stay right here in Pine Valley, please.
Griffin: Be careful what you wish for. Because if I stay, if I stay, there is no way that I am going to let you risk your happiness or your life.
Jake: I'm gonna get going.
Tad: No, you don't. You started this conversation, you're gonna finish it. Ok? We should talk more. This is good. This is productive.
Jake: Oh, really? I liked it the way it's been.
Tad: I don't. I like this --
Jake: I honestly want to keep my heart rate up --
Tad: Jake, come on. Give me a break, ok? You owe me. It's a pretty big gorilla I just threw in the corner of the room.
Jake: I owe you?
Tad: Yeah. We're both in a tough situation here. You don't think I know what you're feeling, how hard it is for you? I know what your first true love cost you. I know what that's like. Even if you have to move on in life, that's a part of your soul. You know? There's still the thing.
Jake: There's no thing.
Tad: Are you sure?
Jake: For the record, there is no --
Tad: It's not about you. It's not a judgment call, ok? It's about me. I just -- I don't want to be any more of an idiot than I have to. I don't want to run around thinking I got a chance with Cara if you're still --
Jake: Look, I'm committed to my wife. I'm committed to my wife, and I'm committed to my kid, ok? And Cara is an amazing woman, but that's the past. It's over. It's been over for a long time.
Tad: You sure?
Jake: Yeah, I'm sure. I'm sure. And if you're happy, and she's happy, and you're happy together, then I'm happy for you.
Tad: You're sure?
Jake: Yeah, sure. So you're welcome. You're welcome.
Tad: This -- this touchy-feely thing isn't that bad, you know? Should I bring it in? Man hug? Ooh.
Jack: Good to see you.
Greenlee: What, are you eating alone? Where's Erica?
Jack: No, no, no. I had a client meeting, but they canceled at the last minute. So --
Greenlee: Oh. Well, how is Erica doing?
Jack: I think she's getting back on track in her own unique way. Thanks for asking. So how are things with you and Ryan?
Greenlee: We're working on it. I'm here to pick up dinner. We're just gonna have a nice family night in.
Greenlee: Yeah. I'm trying so hard to make it work. If I could just remind him how much we love each other and how lucky we are to finally be together. If we could just get past the sadness and the guilt and the blame and -- tell me the truth. Am I turning into my mother?
Jack: Are you turning into your mother? No, Greenlee. Fortunately, you are nothing like your mother. I mean, yeah, sometimes you try to control things too much, and you're a little too much about Greenlee sometimes, but --
Greenlee: You couldn't have lied just to make me feel better?
Jack: Ha ha. You are not your mother, ok? Hey, when was the last time you were banned from France for life like Mary? Come on. Please.
Greenlee: This is why I love talking to you. You tell me the truth, and you can still manage to make me feel better.
Jack: What a very sweet thing to say. Thank you. I love you. And I've come to realize that when you want something badly enough, you don't have a problem shoving the boundaries a little bit. But you know what? I don't blame you for that at all.
Greenlee: Maybe you should.
Jack: No. I think I blame me.
Greenlee: Blame you?
Jack: Greenlee, if I had been in your life to tell you when you were growing up how bright you were, how beautiful, how much you were loved, I think maybe you wouldn't feel like you had to keep such a vise grip on people to keep them close.
Greenlee: I do try too hard, don't I? And it always blows up.
Jack: Not always. You know, the combination of patience and beauty seems to me to be a very rare one -- at least with the women in my life -- but you can always learn a new skill.
Greenlee: Well, I thought I was being patient when I postponed my wedding again. Maybe I just made the biggest mistake of my life.
Ryan: You know, we've been having a tough time lately. You know that. And so when she decided that she wants to take it slow, part of me was actually relieved.
Kendall: Hey, Spiky, can you run to the fridge and go grab a juice box? Could you do that? All right. All right, Ryan, listen to me. You and Greenlee -- you guys cannot keep doing this to each other. Either you want to work it out or you don't.
Ryan: She lied to me, Kendall. She lied to me. I mean, I may never have found out that Madison's child was mine, and now that little girl's gone. How am I supposed to get past that?
Kendall: I don't know. I don't know. But if you can't, then you've got to walk away. You owe it at least to yourself and to Greenlee.
Ryan: I got a bag of new DVDs for Spike. Just tell him I'll be back as soon as I can, ok?
Kendall: Where you going?
Ryan: I got something I got to do.
Kendall: Ok. I'll be here.
[Knock on door]
Kendall: Did you forget your keys or something? Thank God I'm here.
Cara: Here. 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 it. Please?
Tad: Oh. Uh --
Tad: No. I was just wondering what that chart ever did to you.
Cara: You really don't want to know.
Tad: Wow. I guess it might be the wrong moment to give you a surprise.
Cara: I need to tell you something about Jake and me.
Tad: Looks like maybe you should call it a day, we can go home, you can tell me there.
Cara: No, I want to tell you here, right where it happened.
Tad: Where what happened?
Cara: Uh, the night that I thought -- the night that I thought my brother had been killed, I was upset, and Jake found me here.
Tad: I know. I mean, you were together when I walked in. So?
Cara: Um, I was -- I was a wreck. I thought my brother had been killed. I was upset, and Jake was there. He was trying to keep me -- I wanted to leave Pine Valley, go find my brother, and he was -- he was trying to comfort me. We --
Cara: We didn't do that, though. I just can't lie to you, Tad, not after everything you've done for me. And we don't want to hurt anyone. And I know Jake. I know how much he loves you.
Tad: I do, too.
Cara: And I think you're amazing.
Tad: You and Jake -- I understand if the two of you decide what --
Cara: You know, he belongs with Amanda. I'm happy with you, if you'll still have me.
Kendall: I am so glad that you're here. What, are you a mind reader or something? I'm so happy to see you.
Griffin: I didn't --
Kendall: It doesn't matter. I don't care. I'm so excited to see the specs.
Kendall: Yeah, for the Miranda Center clinic. See, this is exactly why I wanted to work with you. You don't waste any time. All right. So let's talk about it. Let's go. I'm ready.
Griffin: I didn't bring the specs. I didn't know you were gonna be here. I --
Kendall: Oh. You didn't? Ok. So did you come to see Ryan?
Griffin: No. Greenlee.
Kendall: Well, she's not here.
Griffin: Ok. Uh, would you tell her I came by, because I need to talk to her.
Kendall: No, you can't leave. I mean, don't you want to give Greenlee a message?
Griffin: Yeah. I want to talk to her about the drug-stealing charges. I wanted to see if she could use her pull as owner of the hospital to get them dropped.
Kendall: I thought Tad was working on that.
Griffin: Tad's helped the Castillos enough, ok? I wanted to do this on my own, so I didn't have to burden him any more.
Kendall: It's called friendship.
Griffin: I'm a lousy friend.
Kendall: Why? Honestly, go ahead.
Griffin: Would you just tell Greenlee I came by?
Kendall: Would you stop? Why do you always do this? Why do you push everyone away?
Jack: Sweetheart, just don't second-guess yourself. Your mother Mary is selfish and impatient and controlling, and it does nothing but make her miserable.
Greenlee: Yeah, and everyone else around her.
Jack: Amen. Besides, who's to say you're not more like the old man?
Greenlee: I will never have your patience. No, I want to be happy with Ryan again. I do, but I can't just sit by and wait for him to realize how much I love him. That's not me, Dad. It never will be. I can't just wait around. I can't wait for that to happen. I -- I have to make it happen.
Jack: Hi. That was a little spooky.
Greenlee: What are you doing here?
Ryan: I wanted to talk to you, unless I'm interrupting something --
Jack: Not at all. I'm just on my way out. Good to see you. And you -- [Whispers indistinctly]
Greenlee: Is it good news or bad?
Cara: What is this?
Tad: You're kidding. I'm gonna freak if you're telling me you don't know what that is. No, it's just -- it belonged to my old man. I used to steal it out of his bag when he came home. He always got really upset with me.
Cara: Oh, my God. This is your father's. No, I can't take this.
Tad: I want you to have it.
Cara: Really, I made a mess of things.
Tad: No, you didn't, Cara. You did the right thing. You told the truth. You were honest when you knew it would hurt. That was pretty impressive. I understand that you and Jake have history.
Cara: It doesn't excuse --
Tad: But I also know I am so proud, so proud to have you as a wife. Whatever terms I can get, you know? I just want what's best for you, no matter what that is.
Cara: I want to make things right. I'm not going back to the hospital.
Tad: No -- yeah.
Cara: No, Jake is there. So --
Tad: So are about 600 other people, and a lot of them are people that you can help, people like Mackenzie. You're nothing if not a damn good doctor, and I should know, because I've been surrounded by them my whole life. You make the impossible possible. Not to mention the fact you thrive on a level of stress that would just make my head explode. With all due respect, Doc -- time for you to go back to the hospital, where you belong.
Kendall: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to go off on you like that. I thought that we've reached an understanding and things were better.
Griffin: We're good, Kendall.
Kendall: No, we're not. Griff, you and I -- we fought Ricky together. We were a team. We made it work together. I had your back, you had mine. I learned to trust you, and I thought that you trusted me.
Griffin: I do trust you.
Kendall: Then why won't you tell me what's really going on, why you can't wait to leave town?
Griffin: When I take something on, I'm all in or nothing. I take full responsibility and the consequences. Otherwise, I get the hell out.
Kendall: All right. That's why you're a good doctor. That's exactly why Zach hired you to expand the Miranda Center. But what about your life? What about the people who care about you? What about your sister?
Griffin: Cara has made it clear to me that she can survive on her own. You don't need me to make Zach's vision come true.
Kendall: You were a part of the expansion from the beginning.
Griffin: I will keep my word, and I will do what I can to help. But once these charges are dropped, that I'm cleared, and I can leave town, I'm out of here.
Kendall: It's that easy, huh?
Griffin: A clean break is best for both of us. I'll get you those specs.
Kendall: I'll tell Greenlee you stopped by.
Greenlee: For us?
Ryan: Yeah. Unless, of course, you'd rather do the takeout?
Greenlee: No. It's great. It's just -- what about Spike and Kendall?
Ryan: I just thought that we needed a little time alone to figure out things, figure out where we are, what we're doing, whether we're gonna make it work or --
Greenlee: I don't want to hear the alternative.
Greenlee: It's been a while, you know, us like this. It's nice to be talking to each other like this. Like, not at each other, but to each other. Maybe it's the wine.
Ryan: It's not the wine.
Greenlee: There's something I'd like to discuss with you.
Ryan: Ok. Anything.
Greenlee: I'd like to rethink postponing the wedding.
Ryan: But that was your idea to begin with.
Greenlee: I know, but that was because it didn't feel right.
Ryan: Why didn't it feel right? Because I was the one who suggested it? You want to be in control of when, where, how?
Greenlee: No, I'm not some control freak. Ok, maybe I am, but not about this.
Ryan: Then what's this about? I don't -- I'm also just a little bit confused. Do you want me to sweep you off your feet right now and go get married? Is this, like, some kind of a test or something? Are you gonna change your mind again?
Greenlee: It's not a test. This is coming out all wrong.
Waiter: Are you ready to order?
Cara: Hi. I'm ready to start my shift, unless you have an objection?
Jake: You sure about that?
Tad: Yep. She is.
Cara: I -- I just told Tad.
Tad: So I guess now we got that settled? And we know that your hospital can't do without her.
Cara: When do I start?
Jake: Great. Go home, get your stuff, and then report back here.
Cara: Ok. Actually, um, I have everything I need right here.
Jake: Is that my father's?
Tad: It is.
Cara: I'm gonna take really good care of it.
Jake: I'm sure you will.
Tad: So I guess I'll wait up?
Cara: It could be late.
Tad: Some things are worth staying up late for.
Cara: Thanks. Ok.
Jake: All right.
Cara: I'm just gonna get my scrubs on.
Cara: Yeah, Chief of Staff, sir?
Jake: Um, I think that there's probably something that we need to do.
Greenlee: You've barely touched your plate.
Ryan: I'm just not very hungry.
Greenlee: Look, I'm sorry about the wedding thing. All I wanted to do --
Ryan: We're not ready, Greenlee.
Greenlee: I am.
Ryan: I'm not. Are you gonna eat that? I'll take care of the check.
[Cell phone rings]
Greenlee: Hi, Dad.
Jack: Hi, sweetheart. Listen, I'm just checking in. So how's it going?
Greenlee: Not good. But I'm not gonna give up.
Jack: Hey. Sounds to me like maybe you're trying that patience thing we talked about, huh?
Greenlee: I'm trying. But I'm gonna fight for Ryan until I know we are the way we can be.
Kendall: You know what? You are gonna be spending lots and lots of time with your daddy this summer. Ok?
Kendall: All right. Why don't you go and put your stuff over there, and then we can have some ice cream.
Spike: What's that?
Kendall: This is something I'm working on with Dr. Castillo. Yeah. Who needs Griffin, you know? Zach and I started this ourselves. I will figure this out without him, though it wouldn't be terrible if he told me exactly how we're gonna do this. Maybe I'll call him. Hi! What you want?
Spike: Can I get two scoops?
Kendall: Two scoops? I don't know. You know what? You can have three! You can have three scoops! Do you want four? You want four scoops, huh? You want five? You want 20 scoops?
[Spike laughs as Kendall tickles him]
Griffin: Everything ok?
Tad: Yeah. Thanks, man.
Bartender: You're welcome.
Griffin: You and Cara?
Tad: Peachy. I know you've been talking about leaving Pine Valley once the charges are dropped. But for what it's worth, I kind of was hoping you'd stick around. I mean, especially now that Cara's going back to work at the hospital. Come to think of it, PVH could probably use both Castillos right about now.
Jake: I guess it's time to put the past in the past.
Cara: Another time, another place.
Jake: I think this is when I say, "We'll always have the Sudan."
Cara: We will.
Jake: You want to do the honors?
Cara: Let's do it together.
Jake: Ok. Ahem. That's that, then.
[Cell phone chirps]
Cara: Excuse me.
[Cell phone chirps]
Cara: Oh. It's Pediatrics.
Jake: It's the E.R.
Cara: Ok. Excuse me.
