Jake: Slobs.

Amanda: Do you think Annie's ok?

Jake: What's your definition of ok?

Amanda: Well, I like her. I just think maybe she's not the best person for me to hang out with with my family history.

Jake: Babe, you are nothing like Annie, ok? You're nothing like your mother, so don't even start going there. You are beautiful. You're stable. You're grounded. You're honest.

Amanda: Anyway, I canceled my plans with her, so maybe I'll go down to the nursery instead.

Jake: Yeah, go see all the new babies.

Amanda: Our baby might be down there someday.

Jake: Yes, that's true. I can't wait.

Griffin: I thought you stopped calling the state department about your paperwork.

Cara: I did.

Griffin: Then why did they tell me they spoke with you yesterday?

Cara: I don't know. It doesn't make any sense to me.

Amanda: It was me. I made the call.

Jesse: Commissioner. Where's the mayor?

Commissioner: Dealing with a sewage crisis.

Jesse: Oh, lucky her. So tell me, what personnel issues does the mayor have problems with in my department now?

Commissioner: Well, two of your officers were seen in a compromising position -- engaging in conduct that clearly violates the rules on interdepartmental relations.

Jesse: Yeah. Happens. I'll call them in, and I'll reprimand them. All right?

Commissioner: Reprimand's not going to cut it. One of the officers is -- your daughter.

Brot: Be right back.

Bianca: Great news!

Kendall: Yeah?

Bianca: They dropped all the charges against Mom.

Kendall: That's amazing. That's great! How happy is she?

Bianca: I have no idea. Mom didn't call me. Caleb did.

Caleb: Well, good news. Liza caved sooner than we expected.

Jack: Are you saying Liza dropped the charges?

Caleb: That's what Erica said in her message.

Jack: Thanks for letting me know.

Erica: You can't hurt me. You can't hurt Kendall. You can't hurt anyone I love ever again.

David: Erica.

Erica: I'll get a doctor.

David: Wait. What happened?

Erica: You don't know?

David: No.

Erica: You've been in a coma for quite a while.

David: How? Why?

Erica: You were shot on Thanksgiving. It's January now.

David: Shot?

Erica: Yes. They were transporting you to prison, and you escaped. You confronted Ryan on the roof of his building. You had a loaded gun. You wanted to kidnap Greenlee.

David: Greenlee.

Jack: We both really appreciate you stepping up as her attorney that way, but now that these charges have been dropped -- she won't be needing your services.

Caleb: Good. Glad to hear that.

[Cell phone rings]


Caleb: I never should have gotten one of these things. Where is it?



Caleb: Hello?


Caleb: Hello?


Caleb: Stupid -- hello! Hello. Hello. Yeah. Yeah, it's me. What's wrong? All right. I'll be right there.

Kendall: I've been having all these nightmares about David. But now that the charges have been dropped --

Bianca: It can all just go away?

Kendall: I don't know. I hope so.

Bianca: So do I. Blaming him for Zach -- blaming anyone, it doesn't help.

Kendall: Reverend Torres keeps trying to help me move forward.

Bianca: He's a good friend.

Kendall: Yes, and he's right. Looking back, well, it's just not helpful. And besides, we have so much to focus on now, like Mom's wedding, if she'll ever plan the date.

Bianca: Yeah, I guess.

Kendall: Don't get too excited.

Bianca: I know. Her and Uncle Jack have just been in this weird holding pattern for a little while now.

Kendall: Well, there's been a lot going on.

Bianca: I know.

Kendall: You don't think it's a good idea, do you?

Bianca: I love Uncle Jack, but he and Mom -- I don't know. Another marriage just -- it isn't a guarantee.

Kendall: No marriage is, right?

Bianca: What?

Kendall: You and Reese, the problems that you're having. That's where this is coming from, isn't it?

Bianca: No. I just remember us getting all caught up in the planning. And you get so focused on this one big day, and then you don't think about all the other days that come after it.

Kendall: Well, you and Reese have spent a lot of those days apart.

Bianca: Reese will come when she can. I just don't want to pressure her.

Kendall: Why? Why not? Don't take the time together that you guys have for granted.

Bianca: I hear you. I do. I just don't think that Reese wants to come back and deal with a whole bunch of Pine Valley drama.

Kendall: I am all about the drama.

Bianca: I'm sorry. I actually didn't mean that.

Kendall: No, it's ok. It's all right. It's no secret. Zach didn't want any part of Pine Valley drama either, so we stayed apart for way too long. Please, Binks, do not make the same mistake. You love Reese. Be with her. Get her here now before it's too late.

Amanda: I didn't mean to cause any trouble.

Griffin: What did you think you were gonna accomplish, pretending to be my sister?

Amanda: I needed to know the truth.

Griffin: You know the truth. Cara's been trying to leave the country.

Amanda: Well, that's what she said, but I thought -- she might be lying, working it for Jake to stay around.

Cara: I'm not.

Amanda: I guess I needed to know for sure.

Griffin: Did you call anyone else? Her bank? Med school teachers? Best friend from fourth grade?

Cara: It's ok --

Griffin: No, it's not ok. If you had questions, you should have asked.

Amanda: My husband's ex shows up out of nowhere, and the man she left the marriage for turns out to be her brother, so I don't know what to believe. But now I realize that it doesn't matter. Jake loves me and Trevor more than anything, and nothing can touch what we have. And I know that. The past is over.

[Pager beeps]

Cara: I'm needed. Pediatrics. Took guts to own up.

Amanda: Go ahead. Let me have it.

Griffin: It's so much easier with guys. A guy will just punch you in the face.

[Pager beeps]

Griffin: Gotta go.

Natalia: Hey, Brot, come here. Hey, Brot!

Commissioner: Your daughter has been carrying on with an officer right under your nose. She's blatantly defying department rules, and you're looking the other way.

Jesse: This isn't about my daughter, is it? This is about Mayor Blanco trying to find any reason to get rid of me.

Commissioner: Mayor Blanco's already expressed concern about your inability to draw the line between your personal life and your professional duties. It's one of the reasons she brought me in. And if you don't draw that line, we will.

Jesse: Oh --

Brot: What's up, Chief? Getting takeout, too? It's a great day, isn't it?

Griffin: Look who it is. How long has he been conscious for?

Erica: Just a couple of minutes.

Griffin: I wasn't talking to you. You need to leave.

Caleb: I'm sorry --

Erica: He's awake. He's awake, and he's asking a lot of questions.

Bianca: Reese can't just drop everything and move here.

Kendall: Zach didn't want to come home. He was so angry, and he wanted distance. So I gave it to him -- gave away hours and days that we could have spent together. We assumed we had a million more, but we didn't. No matter how angry he was or how much he resisted, I should have just insisted that he come home.

Bianca: Thank you for caring so much. But Reese and I, we're not you and Zach. We love each other, but I'm not sure it runs as deep as it used to.

Kendall: Well, that's because you haven't seen her in so long. Binks, you have to call her tonight. You need to make her book a ticket. Promise me that you will.

[Doorbell rings]

Jack: Hey, hey. I've got some great news for a change. Liza dropped the charges. Your mother is free and clear.

Kendall: We heard.

Jack: You did? Good.

Kendall: Yeah, Caleb called Bianca.

Jack: So I figured maybe Erica was here celebrating with her two favorite people. Is she?

Bianca: Actually, we haven't heard from her.

Erica: All of a sudden, he just opened his eyes. What if he knows what really happened? What if he saw Kendall shoot him?

Caleb: Did he give any sign of that?

Erica: No, but I have to get right back in there as soon as I can. I have to drum my version of the story into his head till he believes it.

Caleb: They're not gonna let you just walk back in there.

Erica: No. Dr. Castillo already kicked me out.

Caleb: Why don't you do what you have to do? I'll take care of the doctor.

Erica: Thank you.

Griffin: Ok, he's stabilized. Vitals look good. Welcome back, Dr. H.

David: Castillo.

Griffin: Glad you remembered your star pupil.

David: What are you --

Griffin: I was just passing through Pine Valley, thought I'd pull a bullet out of your chest.

David: You.

Griffin: It was an epic surgery. I can't wait to tell you all about it. I want to check in with your primary doctor, make sure the neurologist is on her way. Welcome back, Dr. H.

Jesse: Just talking to the commissioner.

Brot: Hold on, Chief. Before we talk about work stuff, I want to say something. I care about your daughter a lot, and you already knew that. And we're both grateful that you cut us some slack. But I want to be clear on something. Natalia and I are together.

Jesse: Well, that explains the smile.

Brot: I didn't think it could happen for me again. After Taylor, figured that was it. Figured I'd forget everything else and just focus on my career, but somehow your daughter just got into my heart. I won't let her go. Anyways, I didn't mean to go on for so long. What did you want to say, Chief?

Jesse: No, it can wait. I'm really happy for you.

Natalia: I'm such an idiot. I actually thought that he could be -- that we could --

Jake: Your daughter's fine. She's got a run-of-the-mill cold.

Mr. Winslow: Maybe I wasn't clear when we came into the E.R. Our daughter has cancer. Leukemia.

Jake: Your daughter is in remission --

Mrs. Winslow: Her immune system is still very weak.

Jake: We ran a battery of tests. She's good. She's great. You can take her home.

Mr. Winslow: If you don't put her in some kind of isolation, I will. And if that means never letting her leave the house, putting her in a plastic bubble, we'll do it to protect our child.

Jake: You can protect your child, Mr. Winslow, and she can lead a normal life at the same time.

Mr. Winslow: Our daughter isn't normal. Being sick makes her different from the other kids. She can't do what they do, not anymore.

Cara: Don't say that. Don't take away her hope.

Jesse: Hey, baby, how you doing? How's San Francisco treating you?

Angie: Actually, not so great.

Jesse: What's wrong?

Angie: I don't want you to panic. I just got back from the doctor, and she said it's nothing to be overly concerned about.

Jesse: Doctor?

Angie: Yeah. There was a little scare with the baby, but she's ok. I promise you.

Jesse: What happened?

Angie: I had some cramping, but I saw a very good Ob/Gyn here. And I know her reputation, and I agree with her diagnosis.

Jesse: A diagno -- a diagnosis? Are you kidding me? I'm getting on a plane. I'm coming out there, and I'm bringing you home.

Angie: No, you can't.

Jesse: What do you mean? Are you in the hospital?

Angie: No, I'm not in the hospital. I just can't travel, ok? All I need is rest, and Cassandra's going to wait on me hand and foot. Her words, believe it or not.

Jesse: I'm coming out there.

Angie: What for? So you can sit at my bed and the two of us can be bored, not accomplishing anything? Look, sweetheart, I love you for wanting to come, but you are needed there. And it's really not necessary.

Jesse: You're killing me here. Angela --

Angie: Can you do me a favor?

Jesse: Yeah. Anything.

Angie: I need you to get Jake to step in for me. And tell him to call me, so that I can give him all the details.

Jesse: That's all you need me to do for you? I'm gonna be sitting around on my hands. I'm coming out there. I gotta see you.

Angie: Ok. All right. Just give me a couple of days to veg out, all right. I'm gonna be back before you know it.

Jesse: I love you. You call me if anything changes, anything happens. You just call me, all right?

Angie: I will, and I love you, too.

Cara: She is a child. She's not a piece of glass.

Mr. Winslow: You don't know our daughter.

Jake: Why don't we all --

Mr. Winslow: And we didn't ask for your opinion.

Cara: You want to know the fastest way to bring your daughter's cancer back? Keep her a prisoner. Say no to everything. Take away her spirit. Crush her dreams.

Mrs. Winslow: How dare you!

Cara: Your fear will kill her hope, and that is a tragedy because she can beat this. I know she can!

Griffin: What's going on?

Cara: I'm just trying to tell these people how wrong they are about their daughter 'cause she's got cancer.

Griffin: May I speak to you in private, please?

Cara: No, no! The last thing that your daughter needs is to be surrounded by people who are walking on eggshells, who are always whispering, who are waiting to hear the words. What she needs is encouragement, optimism!

Griffin: Come here.

Cara: Freedom! Get off, Griff!

Griffin: What are you doing?

Cara: I'm standing up for that little girl. Those people have no idea the harm that they're doing to her.

Griffin: Those people are her parents.

Cara: They don't know what I know.

Griffin: You know you should be nowhere near that case.

Jake: Hey, what is going on?

Jack: What do you say some night next week the four of us all get together and celebrate, huh?

Kendall: Yeah! Well, I'm in, on one condition.

Jack: What's that?

Kendall: Convince Mom to pick a wedding date.

Bianca: Kendall.

Kendall: What?

[Cell phone rings]

Jack: Excuse me. Montgomery. Thanks for letting me know.

Kendall: Is everything ok?

Jack: Yeah, just some business I need to take care of. I'll get back to you guys on that dinner next week, all right?

Bianca: Ok.

Erica: I'm glad to see you're awake. Did the doctors or nurses -- did they tell you anything more about --

David: The shooting? No.

Erica: I'm sure they don't want to upset you.

David: It's all right, Erica. I can handle it.

Erica: As I said, you were up on the roof with Ryan, and you pulled a gun on him. There was a struggle, and Ryan knocked that gun out of your hand. I arrived at the moment that you were about to throw Ryan over the side of the building, so I did the only thing I could possibly do to stop you from killing Ryan. I picked up the gun, and I shot you.

David: We both know that is a lie.

Jake: Somebody gonna speak?

Griffin: You know Cara. Sometimes she gets too involved with her patients.

Jake: I think showing a little emotion is a good thing. I think that's her right.

Cara: I think we need to just drop this whole thing, actually.

Jake: Well, guys, we're doctors, right? It's ok to show a little emotion, some personal investment in what goes on around here. I think it's a good thing. I think in moderation, it shows that we care.

Griffin: There's a line.

Cara: Griff, can we --

Jake: Unless you want your brother to decide everything that you can and cannot handle, I'll butt out of it. What exactly happened? What am I missing?

Griffin: David Hayward is awake.

Erica: What I told you is the truth. Why would I lie about shooting you?

David: No. I remember now. I heard the gunshot. I felt the hit. I turned. You didn't shoot me, Erica. Kendall did.

Jesse: Huh. Couldn't sleep any longer, huh? Like forever? Why are you here?

Erica: I was here when he first woke up.

Jesse: I'm gonna have to ask you to leave, 'cause I'm gonna have to ask him a few questions.

Erica: Well, whatever he tells you, Jesse, don't believe him. The coma has completely confused him. I believe he's delusional. And you know what else, Jesse? I think that sick mind of his is even more twisted.

Jesse: Thanks for the tip, Erica.

Erica: Mm-hmm. He knows. He knows that Kendall shot him.

Brot: I got all your favorites -- Natalia?

[Door closes]

Kendall: Ok, you never answered my question about Reese. Invite her to the wedding. In fact, no. Don't make this an invite. Make it more of a request.

Bianca: There isn't even a date set yet.

[Phone rings]

Kendall: Hello.

Griffin: Kendall, it's Dr. Castillo. Griffin Castillo.

Kendall: I know who you are. Is everything ok?

Griffin: I'm calling you because of what happened in Dr. Hayward's room.

Kendall: Why are you bringing this up now?

Griffin: Because he's awake.

Jesse: Rest up good. Soon enough, you'll be in prison where you belong.

David: I was shot.

Jesse: Yeah, you were. And the D.A. realized you deserved it, so she has decided not to pursue charges against Erica.

David: Erica must be very relieved.

Man: Is it just you, or are you waiting for someone?

Natalia: Definitely just me. Alone. You got a problem with that? Is it a problem for a person to get a cup of coffee? Don't even.

Brot: Natalia --

Natalia: Don't touch me! Don't even talk to me. Just forget this even happened.

Brot: Hey. [Kiss]

Customers: Whoo! Whoo!

Brot: Oh.

Natalia: Thanks, yeah. I woke up, and you were gone. Where did you go?

Brot: 'Cause I knew you'd be hungry. So I ran out and got you a cheddar burger and a chocolate shake. Isn't that your favorite?

Natalia: Why didn't you say anything?

Brot: I did say something. It sounded like you mumbled "Ok."

Natalia: I mumble in my sleep.

Brot: I guess I have to learn how to translate mumbling.

Natalia: I thought -- I mean, when you left --

Brot: You thought that I got what I wanted and I took off? Natalia, I'm not that guy. I'm the guy that can't wait to get back to you. Besides, it's gonna take a lot more than your mumbling and snoring to get rid of me.

Natalia: Well, I may mumble, but I do not snore.

Brot: Oh, isn't that cute? But you're gonna have to start trusting me, trusting us.

Natalia: I'll work on it. Where's the takeout?

Brot: It's back at the room.

Natalia: Be a shame to let that go to waste.

Brot: True that. Milkshakes are good, too.

Natalia: I was talking about the room.

Kendall: Deep down, I knew that David would probably wake up.

Bianca: How do you feel about it?

Kendall: I don't know. I wanted him to suffer, to pay for Zach, but I just wish I could get him out of my head.

Bianca: You will. Now that Mom's cleared and David's not just lying there.

Kendall: It feels like there's -- something is unfinished.

Bianca: Then finish it, Kendall. Figure out what it is. Talk to someone.

Kendall: I will. I'll talk to someone.

Bianca: You promise?

Kendall: I promise.

Bianca: Ok.

Kendall: Ok.

Bianca: You need some rest. I will make up the sofa.

Kendall: Thank you very much, but you don't have to do that. I'm going to sleep in my own bed.

Bianca: Yeah?

Kendall: Yeah. I've been up every night thinking about Zach, the things I wished I had said and done. But I'm not gonna do that anymore. You and Mom and Dr. Castillo said that Zach would want me to take care of myself, so it's time I start to do that.

Jesse: Nothing more to say?

David: Just trying to figure out what's going on.

Jesse: What's going on is it's over for you.

Griffin: Hey, he's not supposed to have any visitors.

Jesse: Hey, I'm not a visitor. I'm the chief of police, and I need to question your patient.

Griffin: Dr. Hayward needs to rest.

Jesse: Dr. Hayward can rest the next time he dies.

Griffin: He barely knows where he is.

Jesse: Trust me, he knows where he is. Do not underestimate the good doctor, especially when he's trying to save his ass from going to prison. Right?

David: I'm not there yet.

Griffin: You really need to rest. He's not up for an interrogation right now.

Jesse: As soon as he is, find me. I'll be around. And just in case you get some crazy idea --

Griffin: You think he's gonna bolt out of bed and jump out the window with his bedsheets?

Jesse: I think I'm not gonna take any chances.

Griffin: What if I have to take him in for tests?

Jesse: Find me. I'll be right here.

Erica: Jesse's in there with him. David could be accusing Kendall right now.

Caleb: I don't think so. Wouldn't take this long.

Erica: I know David. He's not gonna just let it go. [Sees Jack] David's awake.

Jack: I heard. What are you doing here?

Erica: I had to let David know that the charges are dropped. I guess I just had to let him know that he lost.

Jack: So what did he say to you?

Erica: He was very weak. He was very disoriented. It was very hard to say.

Jack: He can't hurt us. Not anymore. Not you, not Greenlee, not any of us.

Caleb: We won't let that happen.

Erica: Ok, then I'm gonna go find Kendall, and I'm gonna go tell her what happened.

Jack: Are you sure that's a good idea?

Erica: Of course, it's a good idea. I don't want her to hear from somebody else. I'm the one. I need to be the one to tell her.

Jack: Caleb. I'd like a word with you.

Jake: Hi.

Cara: Hi.

Jake: Back at the hospital, that was pretty intense, you and that little kid's father. I don't think I've ever seen you react like that. Seemed a little personal to me.

Cara: Well, I don't know what you're talking about. [Gets up and leaves]

Jake: Leaves a nice glass of wine. She left this for you.

Man: Thanks.

Jake: You're welcome.

Jesse: Hey. Just who I've been looking for.

Jake: Yeah?

Jesse: Yeah.

Jake: You heard about Hayward? He's awake. You're gonna have your hands full, my friend. So's Angie when she comes back to the hospital. Good luck with that.

Jesse: Actually, that's what I wanted to talk to you about. Kind of hoping you'd be willing to -- dive right smack into the middle of that madness.

Griffin: Doctor forget to give you a lollipop, or did you hear about Dr. Hayward?

Amanda: What about David?

Griffin: Well, clearly I'm in the minority, but I think it's a good thing when someone comes out of a coma.

Amanda: Well, just wait. You'll see.

Griffin: Wow. Now you sound like you really need a lollipop.

Amanda: I'm surprised you think I even deserve one.

Griffin: Everyone deserves a lollipop.

Amanda: I invaded your sister's privacy.

Griffin: And you admitted it. Cara was right. It took guts.

Amanda: If I had real guts, I'd tell Jake what I did. You know what, I'm gonna go right now and go talk to him.

Griffin: Why would you do that? Cara and I aren't gonna say anything.

Amanda: I don't keep secrets from my husband. I made a mistake, and he should know.

Griffin: Mistake? I don't remember any mistake.

Jake: Listen, Jesse, anything that Angie needs, I'm there. Ok?

Jesse: Thanks a lot, Jake.

Jake: And the baby's gonna be fine. I just know it.

Jesse: Yeah, I know. It's just been one hell of a day. And to top it all off, I could be out of a job.

[Natalia and Brot return to the Yacht Club room to have more sex]

Singer: Baby come on and scoot a little closer now have I got something for you maybe you'll have to make a move to come back come on, it's right so let's not waste it just for tonight don't hesitate don't hold it back the things you want to do 'cause I'll give in yeah, I will fall fall right through to you

Jack: Who knows what Hayward might be capable of? This relationship he has with Liza. It's -- well, it's kind of an unknown.

Caleb: You think he might be pushing to get the charges reinstated against Erica?

Jack: I think anything is possible. If that happens, Erica's going to need a lawyer.

Caleb: You don't even have to ask.

Erica: Where's Kendall?

Bianca: She's asleep.

Erica: I need to see her right away.

Bianca: No, don't wake her.

Erica: David has come out of his coma. She has to know this.

Bianca: She does. She does know.

Erica: How did she react?

Bianca: She was a little bit confused at first, but then she thought she'd feel better if she got some sleep.

Erica: Well, I hope she's right.

Bianca: This is the first night since Zach died that she's sleeping in her bed instead of the couch. This is a huge step.

Erica: Yes, it is. It certainly is. That's good. I want her to sleep. I want her to stay away from David. I want her to stay as far away as possible from that man.

[Kendall walks into David's room]

David: I'm -- very glad to see you.
