Erica: There you go.
Woman: Thank you.
Erica: You're welcome.
Verla: Holy saints on one a shingle. Erica Kane?
Erica: Well, do you want me to sign something for you?
Verla: Oh, no, honey. I'm not just one of your fans. I mean, oh, my goodness. You and me, Erica, we are -- we're simpatico. Comrades in arms.
Erica: We are?
Verla: Yeah, you know, show biz?
Erica: Oh. Well, you are so kind, but I really have to go now.
Verla: Wait, wait, wait. Hold on. Wait a minute. I haven't told you about my new reality TV series yet. And I would like to offer you the opportunity to be my very first guest.
Erica: Why don't you have your people speak to my people?
Verla: Oh, no. Wait, wait, wait. tell you about it. See, it's all about me -- you know, my life on the carny circuit and everything in between, and it's called "The Wild and Wacky World of Verla Grubbs."
Erica: You're Verla Grubbs?
Verla: Ta da.
Tad: Has the surgery started?
Jesse: It should be getting underway right about now.
Tad: Ok, good. Right?
Jesse: I can't lose her, Tad.
Tad: Hey, hey, come on. You're not going to. What are you talking about? It's not that big a surgery. I mean, I know there are risks, but I also know Angela Hubbard, man. She's strong.
Jesse: I'm not talking about the surgery. I'm talking about my marriage.
Greenlee: You here for takeout, too?
Kendall: Yes. Zach and I have a night alone finally. You went shopping.
Greenlee: Yeah, a little something for Ryan.
Kendall: Yeah? Let me check this out here. Um, a very little something. When's the occasion?
Greenlee: I have a husband to seduce.
Ryan: So everything is going all right?
Krystal: Yeah. Yeah, everything's good except for letting David get to me. Just the hint of a chance, the barest possibility that Babe is still alive, and -- I mean, I know. I know I should just chalk it up as a lie, but he's just got me hanging, just like half this town. Do you think -- do you think there's a chance that she's --
Ryan: I am doing everything I possibly can to find out.
Krystal: I know David is a bastard, ok? But if he did save Babe -- I mean, please. I would forgive him almost anything.
Ryan: See, that's exactly what he wants. He's using Orpheus to manipulate people who would never have trusted him before.
David: So you think you're out of remission?
Cara: I don't know for sure. That's why I need to run these tests.
David: And what are the symptoms?
Cara: You know what? I'm sorry. This is -- it's -- I know what it is. It's the double shifts. It's the -- it's Orpheus. It's my personal life. I just need a few nights' sleep, and you know --
David: Wait a minute. Well, we need to make sure.
Cara: I'm sure, David.
David: Denial never cured anyone.
Cara: I'm fine. Excuse me.
David: Cara, wait a minute.
Cara: Did you need to see me?
Zach: We need to talk.
David: Cara -- this is not a good time.
Zach: Ryan Lavery -- he's a problem. We got to fix it.
Tad: Believe me, you're gonna get through this.
Jesse: Well, she said she loved me, but forgiving me?
Tad: Jesse, it's gonna take some time. I mean, the fact is it's a lot for her to handle, all right? But she will. You know, you love her. Just be there for her. Support her. Help her heal.
Jesse: What if she doesn't forgive me, Tad? I mean, what if this is that thing that just breaks it?
Tad: It won't be because somewhere inside, she's got to understand why you did it.
Jesse: It didn't fix anything, did it? Angela sacrificed her eyesight to have this baby, and I figured if God was cruel enough to take her sight and her baby from her, I was gonna step in and make it right. Now all I've done is put her through this ridiculous hell that she doesn't deserve, and it's not over. Maya -- she's gonna want to move on, take Lucy with her. Angela will have lost two babies, and that's on me, man. Oh. [Sighs]
Jack: Well, it seems like Hayward is the only topic of conversation in this town.
Ryan: He's done a lot of damage to many people.
Krystal: As crazy as this whole back-from-the-dead thing is, I just can't help thinking, what if? What if it were true? What if babe walked through that door?
Ryan: Greenlee was in exactly the same position that you are in right now when Hayward hinted that Leo was still alive.
Jack: He said that to Greenlee?
Ryan: Yes, he did. He plants the seed, and he lets the doubt grow. So just -- just don't buy into it.
Jack: He's doing the same thing with Erica. The big tease there is that there's some old flame out there just waiting to sweep her into his arms. I mean, really? Come on.
[Cell phone rings]
Ryan: I got to take this.
Jack: Krystal, please listen to Ryan. Do not be sucked into this.
Krystal: I know Ryan's right, ok? But there's just a part of me that just wants to believe it.
Jack: Of course, there is because you miss her.
Krystal: Every day.
Krystal: I still have my family. I've got my beautiful daughters Marissa and Jenny and then Babe's son A.J. -- he's growing like a weed.
Jack: There you go.
Krystal: How are you doing?
Jack: I'm good. I'm good -- even better now that Erica isn't taking Hayward's bait.
Jack: "Hmm"? What does that mean?
Krystal: Erica took the bait and the hook and the line and the sinker.
Jack: Ok, what do you mean?
Krystal: I'm talking about her trip to L.A. She's going there to find out if Mike Roy is still alive.
Verla: Show them pearlies. Oh, perfect.
Erica: Ok, then.
Verla: You know, I'm just so thrilled that Myrtle Fargate told you all about me. God rest her carny soul. I want you to know, Erica, any friend of Myrt's is a friend of mine. You know, it's funny -- you and me, we never met before -- I mean, what with Myrt and all.
Erica: What brings you back to Pine Valley now?
Verla: Well, let me tell you. You see, Pine Valley High School tomorrow is having its class reunion, and I plan to crash it and reunite with one hot spark of a man.
Erica: Not Sam Brady.
Verla: Well, scrape me off the ceiling. How'd you know that?
Erica: Sam used to date Opal Cortlandt, my best friend in the whole wide world, and you came between them all those years ago, so this is their second chance.
Verla: No, no, no. You got it all wrong, Erica. I didn't come between them. Sam was my man that got away. I never got over him. You know, I'll bet even Erica Kane has a long-lost love somewhere -- someone she's dreamed of seeing even one more time.
Erica: Sometimes it's best to leave the past in the past.
Verla: I don't know about that. I mean, when your mama was a snake-charmer and your daddy a snake, you're gonna wind up with a lot of reptiles.
Erica: If you slither between Sam and Opal now, then you'll be the snake.
Verla: You know what? If Opal wants to fight for Sam, she's gonna have to go mano a mano with moi, and may the best woman win.
Erica: Then you better just tengano out of towno right now-o.
Verla: You know what-o? As of now, you are officially uninvited to be on my show. I have a much better first guest in mind for my premiere episode -- my future husband, Mr. Sam P. Brady.
Kendall: I don't know. Zach and I, we haven't had much time alone either, and I feel like ever since he's been back, maybe we'd have this whole second honeymoon, but things keep getting in the way -- life.
Greenlee: Give Zach his takeout wearing something like this, nothing will get in his way.
Kendall: He's been so focused on this whole thing with David.
Greenlee: Same with Ryan. But for one night, I'm clearing his head of all things David.
Zach: Ryan Lavery is looking for dirt on you and the project.
David: Oh, man. I've taken precautions, but I cannot afford him stumbling upon my works in progress.
Zach: I'll stop him. What are we dealing with here? How many patients?
David: I have a better idea. Why don't I tell you nothing?
Zach: The more I know, the more I can help.
David: All right, look. Let's just focus on handling Ryan, all right?
Zach: All right. Leave it to me.
David: And what are you going to do?
Zach: Why can't you just trust me the way I trust you?
David: I'm not a trusting man, Zach.
Zach: I know that. I took care of Griffin. I'll take care of Ryan.
Jack: Krystal, I don't know where you got your information, but I'm happy to say you're wrong this time. Erica is going to Los Angeles to promote her new book.
Krystal: That's what she told you.
Jack: It's more than that. Listen to me. I saw the contracts. I booked her itinerary. I know it's the truth.
Krystal: It's at least enough of the truth to cover the real reason why she's going.
Jack: Are you sure about that?
Jack: Why can't she just let it go?
Krystal: I think that's a question that you need to ask Erica.
Jack: Yes, and so I shall. Thank you.
Kendall: You sound so sure it's all gonna work out.
Greenlee: Because we're us. I mean, we built a company out of lipstick on a stove. We have incredible men in our lives. We have amazing families. If we want "happy," we'll get it.
Kendall: I want my life to be back the way it was before Zach's plane crash.
Greenlee: Not going to happen.
Kendall: Gee, thank you for the support.
Greenlee: Listen, I've been where Zach is. You fight your way back to get out of bed, to get off the drugs, to be you, but you're not. Too much has happened.
Kendall: So are you saying that Zach and I are never gonna get back what we had?
Greenlee: Listen, Zach went through hell. So did you when you lost him. You're not the same people.
Kendall: How did you do it? I mean, how did you and Ryan make it work?
Greenlee: After I stomped all over his heart and married David? It wasn't easy. You have to talk through things. But with Zach, good luck with that.
Kendall: Yeah, exactly. I don't know. I keep feeling like I'm afraid to let him out of my sight, like maybe this whole thing is just a dream or he's not real.
Greenlee: He is real, and he loves you, and it's not gonna be the same. But that's not a bad thing. After everything that Ryan and I have been through, all those times that I said it was never gonna work, one day I just woke up with his arm around me, and it just felt right. I just knew it was gonna work. And that'll happen for you, too. And a little black lace never hurts.
Greenlee: Thank you.
Kendall: Thank you. All right, well, have fun tonight.
Greenlee: That's the plan.
Kendall: Mm-hmm. All right. Zach, I need you.
Jesse: I told myself it was a miracle and all I had to do was reach out and grab it. Then after that, every time I saw Angela holding Lucy or every time I saw Lucy's face light up when she would hear Angela's voice, I told myself, "You did the right thing. Say nothing. Nobody gets hurt." But I messed up, boy, big time. I need to own that and make it right.
Tad: You started to make it right when you told her the truth. Angela -- Angela's hurt for sure. You're gonna have to let her mourn Ellie and Lucy. Whatever happens, you'll deal with it.
Jesse: And when my wife leaves me, how do I deal with that?
Tad: She's not going to, Jesse. Come on. She loves you more than anything. You know it, and I know it. It's gonna take some time. It won't be easy, but she will forgive you.
Jesse: How is she?
David: Her vitals are good. B.P. is stable. The surgery is going as planned.
Jesse: Thank God.
Cara: Oh! I'm sorry. No, that would have been bad. I apologize.
Jake: No sorrys necessary. Um, how are you doing? Congratulations.
Cara: For almost running right into you?
Jake: No, no. I heard about your green card, and you're legal, and I'm happy for you.
Cara: Oh, thank you.
Jake: You all right?
Cara: It's double shifts, you know, and stuff.
Jake: I got it. I thought maybe it was David, because I heard you're with him.
Cara: Oh, no, we're working together. That's all.
David: Is there a problem?
Cara: Oh, no. No problem.
Jake: You. You're usually the problem. Usually.
David: Look, Cara is not your wife anymore, and she won't be your brother's much longer, all right? So she doesn't need you to be her guard dog.
Jake: So you speak for her now?
David: I'll tell you what. Here's a great idea. Focus on your job, ok? While you still have one.
Cara: Oh, my goodness.
Jake: Now you're threatening me.
Cara: Ok, we're all fine here, and actually I have --
David: You do have a job to do, right?
Cara: I have a patient. Excuse us. We have to discuss this.
Erica's Voice: I love you both. You keep me honest. And you -- you don't seem to care whether I'm honest or not. I just wish I could morph you two into one.
Mike's Voice: Anatomically impossible.
Jack's Voice: Thank God for that. So you have to choose.
Erica: Jack. What a surprise. I didn't expect you to come to see me off.
Jack: I got a quick question for you. Are you going to Los Angeles to promote your book or on a hunting expedition? And I want the truth this time.
Frankie: Hey, how's Mom?
Randi: Any news?
Jesse: She's still in surgery. All we can do now is wait and drink a lot of coffee. Listen, I, um -- I really appreciate your coming while I'm here, especially after what I put your mother through -- what I put our entire family through.
Randi: Jesse, you were just trying to give Angie the baby that you knew that she needed.
Jesse: I made such a mess.
Randi: I get why you did it. When I miscarried -- when I found Trevor on those church steps, all I wanted was a baby. Nothing else mattered.
Jesse: This wasn't my call to make. I have torn your mother up so much over this.
Frankie: Hey, you only did it because you love her so much.
Jesse: I just hope that she can forgive me someday.
Frankie: Hey, she will. She will.
Erica: The only hunting I plan to do in L.A. is for some great shoes on Rodeo Drive.
Jack: So you're denying that the main reason you're going out to L.A. is to see if Mike Roy is alive?
Erica: You are so sexy when you're jealous, and I plan to take full advantage of that just as soon as I get home.
Jack: Yes, and I plan to let you, and you are a very beautiful woman, even when you're lying.
Erica: Jack, if all you wanted to do was attack me, why didn't you just send me a text?
Jack: Because then I wouldn't get to actually hear you admit it.
Erica: Why are you being like this?
Jack: Sweetheart, I know for a fact that the main reason you're going to L.A. is Mike Roy.
Erica: Did Opal tell you that?
Jack: It doesn't matter. Look, all that matters is I told you this was ok. I said if you needed to do this, go and do this. So why are you lying to me?
Kendall: Hello, husband.
Zach: What's all this? Candles and what, you made dinner? What's the occasion?
Kendall: I miss you. I miss us, the way we used to be.
Zach: Used to be what? Like before Hayward and Orpheus?
Kendall: Zach, you breathe Orpheus. You sleep it. I'm afraid that you're getting sucked in too deep. I want it over, Zach. I want it over now.
Ryan: You like it?
Greenlee: Nice palm tree.
Ryan: Thank you very much. It's a 12-footer, and it's heavy, but hey, you know, I know we've been talking about going down to the tropics, and we've been a little busy, so I decided to bring the tropics to us. Hey, wait. Check this out. Ready for this.
[Hawaiian music playing]
Ryan: See that?
Greenlee: It's perfect.
Ryan: Seriously, we have really been slacking with our surprise a day, because we've been so busy, and I just don't want that to happen. I don't want it to just fall off the map, you know?
Greenlee: I was thinking the same thing. Surprise.
Ryan: Hmm. Surprise. [Kiss]
David: So why don't you tell me more about this imaginary patient.
Cara: Right. It's just Jake was starting to ask me some questions that I really wasn't ready to answer.
Cara: He could sense something was off about me.
David: And you were afraid that I might spill that you might be having a relapse? You need to learn to trust me.
Cara: You're the only one who knows. I want to keep it that way until I know for sure what's going on.
David: And I think that's very wise.
Cara: You like this, don't you -- being let in on a secret -- especially the ones that the Martins don't know about?
David: Yeah, there's that, but I'm also glad that you felt that you can share this with me, and if the cancer is back, I want to promise you that I will do everything in my power to help you fight it.
Cara: You know what? I can handle my own treatment.
David: Wait a minute. But you don't have to. I have methods at my disposal that no one else in the world has. Let me use them to help you.
Cara: Why? I mean, do you care, or am I just like another one of your guinea pigs?
David: Maybe it's about friendship.
David: Yeah. Come on. It's not like we don't have a history, right? Didn't I find the doctor who saved you the last time your cancer recurred?
Cara: That doesn't mean I need your help this time, ok, or that I'm interested in being a guinea pig.
David: Please. You're never gonna be anyone's guinea pig. You're too beautiful for that. And besides, maybe I value this relationship too much to be anything but honest with you. You know, as much as this might pain you to admit it, I think we're a lot alike. We never give up when we want something, and we both know what it's like to feel like we're on the outside looking in.
Cara: Ok, look. I get it. We have a connection. That doesn't mean that I'm just gonna hand over complete control of my care to you if I'm sick.
David: This isn't about control, Cara. This is about getting you healthy again, and you don't have to do it alone.
Cara: Hmm. Ok. If I'm sick -- I know this disease. I know my body. I determine my course of treatment. Is that understood?
David: Ok. I get it. You want to remain in control, and I won't take that away from you, I promise.
Cara: Thank you.
David: But I can be there for you, on your terms, all right?
Tad: Ok. I talked to the duty nurse. She says there's no update -- not yet, anyway.
Jake: Look who I found at the vending machines.
Krystal: I hope you don't mind. I wanted to be here for you and Angie.
Jesse: I appreciate it. I know Angela does, too. I just wish this operation was over.
Erica: Look, Jack, you were so upset by the mere idea that Mike would be alive, I certainly didn't want to upset you any further.
Jack: So you lied.
Erica: I wanted to avoid having another fight with you. Look, Jack, this is something I just need to follow up on.
Jack: No, you don't. No, you don't. Look, what exactly do you think is going to happen if by some miracle he is still alive? You're gonna lay eyes on one another and the sparks are gonna fly?
Erica: Jack, the only reason I want to find Mike Roy alive is because I think of him as a friend. Nothing more.
Jack: Erica, you loved this man.
Erica: Yes, I did. I loved him -- past tense. But I chose you, Jack. I would always choose you. You are the man I was meant to be with. Don't you know that? Don't you remember? You always said that I'm your heart.
Jack: Oh, I know I'm the man you're meant to be with, and I know you are my heart, and I never, ever forget those things. But every once in a while, I think you do.
Erica: Never. I always want to be your heart.
Greenlee: Another surprise?
Ryan: Open it. Open it. Go ahead.
Ryan: Awesome, am I right?
Greenlee: This is amazing.
Ryan: I knew you would love it. I figured it was time for us to join the Polar Bear Club. Am I right?
Greenlee: Wow. Maybe I'll just watch you from the nearest glacier or something.
Ryan: Come on.
Greenlee: I wish we could just pack up and leave right now -- leave everything behind.
Ryan: Everything being David and Orpheus?
Greenlee: You're obsessed with him. Zach's obsessed with him. I wish you could just let it go.
Ryan: After everything he's done to the people of this town, people that we love, it's not gonna happen. And he's pretty much announced that he's gonna cause more damage, so I stop after I stop him.
Greenlee: I just hate to see what he'll do to you when you get too close.
Ryan: He's not gonna touch me.
Greenlee: You can't promise that.
Ryan: But I can promise that we are gonna be hanging out with polar bears in no time.
Greenlee: Mmm. You're just trying to get me to shut up.
Ryan: Yeah. Is it working?
Zach: I thought you were on board.
Kendall: I didn't know it would be like this.
Zach: But you do understand it has to be done.
Kendall: Yeah. It doesn't make it any easier. Zach, I just got you back, and sometimes it feels like you're not even here.
Zach: I'm here. I'm not going anywhere. And that's what we had engraved in your ring, right? Maybe it's time for you to put it back on.
Kendall: Will you say it?
Zach: Always only you.
Woman on P.A.: Dr. Valentino to the O.R., please. Dr. Valentino to the O.R., please.
Jesse: I really appreciate you guys showing up like this. You're amazing friends. I appreciate the support, really.
Krystal: But you'd kind of like for us to clear out so you can breathe. It's ok. Look, you give Angie one of these, ok? [Hug]
Jesse: I will.
Krystal: And tell me when she's ready for visitors.
Jesse: You'll be the first to know, ok? Thanks, Krystal.
Randi: Everything's gonna work out. I'll see you later.
Frankie: Yes. So the operation has been going on for, what? A few hours? Let's see what we can find out.
Jake: Oh, yeah. We'll do that right now.
Tad: Don't you dare look at me. You don't need that much air to breathe. I'm staying.
David: Let's not assume the worst, ok?
David: Why don't we get you tested first, all right?
Cara: Um -- could you -- could you take my blood, please?
Erica: Ok, let me prove to you that I'm telling the truth. Come with me.
Jack: Three's a crowd, if I remember correctly.
Erica: Jack, please don't be like this. Please don't be angry. This is just something that I have to do.
Jack: I know.
Erica: And no matter what I find, the only man in my life is you.
Jack: I know that, too. So go. Do what you have to do. It's the last time I'm gonna tell you this, now, but from now on, just be honest with me, huh?
Erica: I promise.
Erica: And when I get home --
Erica: We are gonna plan our wedding, and we are going to find the most romantic place in the world. Maybe we'll go back to Paris. Corrine has very fond memories of her monsieur.
Jack: Well, we don't want to disappoint Corrine, do we? No, we don't.
[Ryan scoops Greenlee up in his arms, kisses, and carries her up to bed where they make love]
Greenlee: I love you.
Singer: I can feel you all around me every moment is just like a dream sinking slowly flying higher never waking from this desire so breathe me in hold my soul stay with me never letting go
Kendall: Show me how much you love me.
[In their bedroom, Kendall and Zach make love]
Singer: Breathe me breathe me in hold my soul stay with me never letting go breathe me in hold my soul stay with me never letting go as you're breathing me in slow breathe me in slow
Jack: Have a good trip.
Erica: I will now that I know I have you to come home to.
Jack: Don't stay away too long.
Erica: Jack, there is nowhere I'd rather be than here with you. I promise. [Blows Jack a kiss]
Frankie: The surgery's over. She's in recovery.
Jesse: How'd it go?
Frankie: Good. No complications.
Jesse: Will she be able to see?
Frankie: You got to talk to the surgeon.
Jesse: Can I go see her?
Frankie: Yeah, yeah, as soon as she wakes up. Yeah.
Ryan: You're quiet.
Greenlee: Just thinking.
Ryan: You're worrying.
Greenlee: I am not.
Ryan: Yeah, you are, about me going after David.
Greenlee: Ok, um, it scares me. I wish you wouldn't.
Ryan: I promised you that I would stay safe, and I keep my promises.
Zach: Wide awake.
Kendall: Yeah? You ready for more?
Kendall: I wish we could stay like this forever. I would give you an occasional pass to go see the Red Wings game.
Zach: The Red Wings game? That's good. Just the home games.
Zach: And the away games.
Kendall: Whatever you want.
Zach: And the club games.
Zach: That's great.
[Cell phone rings]
Kendall: Oh, no. No, Zach.
Zach: It's important.
Kendall: Who is it?
Zach: What you got? I need a full report.
