Tad: Thanks, Mike. I got a lot of guys coming. Sort of a boys' night out. So make sure you keep 'em coming, ok?

Cara: Ta-da!

Tad: Fan mail from some flounder?

Cara: This is a suspect list. You know?

Tad: Shh!

Cara: People I think could have took drugs at the hospital.

Tad: I told you, I already have a list.

Cara: Yeah, but this is the shift schedule, so that you know when they're on and off duty. This is what I'm thinking. We should split the names, start buddying up to them. What? What is so funny?

Tad: Did you really just say "buddy"?

Cara: Yes. I will take the guys. You take the girls. I got it. We need those phones with the walkie-talkies. That way, we're always in contact with each other.

Tad: No, wait. I got an even better idea. We need those little watches with the screens on 'em so we can see one another.

Cara: You're making fun of me.

Tad: Yeah, I am.

Cara: Don't do that.

Tad: You're cute, ok. You're very cute, but I told you, ok? I work alone.

Cara: Yeah, well, you used to work alone. There you go.

Erica: It's not a question of trusting you, Jack, but I know you. You have a moral code. You have this commitment to honesty.

Jack: And by God, I'm not gonna apologize for that!

Erica: No, you shouldn't. I love that you're such a principled man, that right is right and wrong is wrong, but -- there are no exceptions with you. And so I was so afraid that you might just put the truth above Kendall.

Jack: How could you think for a minute that I would do anything to hurt your daughter?

Erica: Because you've done it before.

Madison: Oh!

Bianca: You ok?

Scott: Hey! I hope you like 'em.

Greenlee: You don't have to do this.

Ryan: Are you kidding? It was my idea to go skating.

Greenlee: Yeah, well, it was that little kid's idea to throw French fries on the ice.

Ryan: I have to say, you did fall very gracefully.

Greenlee: Thank you.

Ryan: You're welcome.

Greenlee: Now, go. Have fun on your little boys' night out. Not too much fun.

Ryan: I'm gonna be with Tad and Jake. How much fun can I have?

Greenlee: But isn't this like your informal bachelor party?

Ryan: No, this is just a couple guys getting together, blowing off some steam, that's all. You sure you're gonna be ok here?

Greenlee: I'm gonna be fine, for the 10th time! Yes. Kendall's just coming over. We're gonna look through some Fusion products. And for all I know, I'll have body glitter on my foot by the time you get home.

Ryan: Body glitter, huh?

Greenlee: Mm-hmm.

Ryan: Can't wait. Call me if you need anything. Love you.

[Door opens and closes]

Greenlee: Hey, Sandra, it's Greenlee. Is Kendall on her way over? She went to the jail? Never mind. I'll talk to you later. Bye.

Griffin: Did Kendall Slater check in?

Nurse: Not yet.

Griffin: Ok. Here we go. Kendall, it's Dr. Castillo. That makes 3 missed appointments. A lesser man would be offended, but I'm just gonna say adios. You got more going on than I can help you with. See you around.

David: Kendall. Kendall! Can you hear me? Damn it. Guard! Somebody come in here! Open this damn door! Now, I'm telling you, or she's gonna die!

David: Just hang on, Kendall. They're coming. Just hang on.

Greenlee: Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Kendall --

David: Open this damn cell.

Guard: Back up!

Greenlee: What did you do to her?

Erica: Have you forgotten, Jack? You put the truth first on another occasion, and I lost custody of Bianca.

Jack: You still haven't forgiven me? You're still punishing me for the outcome of Bianca's custody trial?

Erica: I'm not punishing you, Jack. I don't mean it like that. I just mean that the truth matters to you. And sometimes it's more important to you than the most important person in your life.

Jack: I don't believe what I'm hearing. I don't.

Erica: But, Jack, this is not a criticism. I am merely pointing out the fundamental difference in the way we live our lives.

Jack: And did you honestly think that if I knew the truth, I wouldn't fight to have those charges dropped?

Erica: Jack, at the moment, you don't even have your license to --

Jack: So what? I would have worked behind the scenes, Erica. The same way I did for you when Caleb was -- all of this could just go away, but she has to know the real story.

Erica: I agree. Lately, I've been thinking that keeping the truth from her is causing more harm than good. But right now, I want you to know the truth. There is no romantic connection between Caleb and me.

Jack: Bianca's custody trial. My God, how many years ago was that?

Erica: I don't know, Jack.

Jack: Well, I really believed that we had worked through all these fundamental differences. Boy -- shows you how blind a man in love can really be.

Bianca: Pretty flowers! I'll just --

Scott: Ok.

Madison: What was that?

Scott: What? I thought all women loved flowers.

Madison: I don't mean the flowers. I mean the delivery. What was that?

Scott: What was that? That was me buying you a little extra time before you unveiled -- yeah.

Madison: You saw that?

Scott: Saw that. The button? It almost hit me in the eye, took it out. I'm kidding. You're fine.

Madison: I know I should be in maternity clothes, but I'm just not ready. I can't believe how fat I'm getting.

Scott: Come on, you're not fat. You're just a little fat. I'm totally kidding! You are pregnant, ok? This is what's supposed to happen.

Madison: Oh, am I supposed to be eating an entire pizza for dinner and a half a pint of ice cream? A whole pint of ice cream? I can't stop myself.

Scott: Look, this is normal, isn't it?

Madison: You don't understand. I have a different craving every five minutes.

Scott: Really?

Madison: This morning, it was chocolate-covered pretzels and then olives. I was about to microwave some mac and cheese when I busted out of my pants.

Scott: Oh, mac and cheese. You know who makes great mac and cheese? ConFusion. I'll go get some.

Madison: No, don't. Please.

Scott: No, it's fine. I'm gonna head over there anyway 'cause it's happy hour -- free appetizers, all you can eat. It's a fantastic --

Madison: Don't tell me that.

Scott: Listen to me. You are fine, ok? You look fine. And I will be right back.

Madison: Thank you. Oh, Scott!

Scott: Yeah?

Madison: Maybe if they have some of those little pigs in a blanket --

Scott: Of course.

Madison: You didn't have to run out like that.

Bianca: I don't even work here anymore. I was just picking up donated makeup for the Miranda Center. So -- Scott?

Madison: He's a great guy.

Bianca: But he's not Ryan? Oh, it can't be easy. Your boss with the man you used to date.

Madison: I'm actually glad that it ended when it did. I mean, Ryan figured out that he still had feelings for Greenlee before we got too serious. It really could have been a lot worse.

Bianca: Well, you're really taking it well.

Madison: Do I have a choice? I actually gotta get out of here for a bit.

Ryan: Can I get a beer, please? Anything you have on draft is totally fine.

Cara: And just for the record, I'm not cute, ok? I'm tough.

Tad: I'm sure you are, but I am flying solo on this one. I have to. See, I consider myself a lone wolf, a kind of island of hope being circled by the great white sharks of the guilty in the sea of injustice.

Cara: Did you just make that up?

Tad: I did. Pretty good, huh?

Cara: No. Ok, here's the deal. When you were working that guy earlier, when we were playing off of each other, we really had him going. I think I could be good at this. I can help you, Tad.

Tad: Seriously, Cara, all joking aside, what you consider fun, I consider a job with responsibilities. And I know you thought that was a rush, probably because you're no longer halfway around the globe saving lives in some third-world country. So, thank you, ok, but I will take it from here.

Cara: Well, you're missing out, because I make an excellent partner. Oh! Why don't you look over that list and give me a call. Jake.

Jake: What was that all about?

Tad: Your case.

Jake: Tell me right now you didn't tell her anything about the drugs that went missing.

Tad: I didn't have to. She found out on her own. Long story short, she wants to be Watson to my Sherlock, Scooby to my doo.

Jake: Right, because she loves the excitement. She loves the adventure.

Tad: You think?

Jake: I'm telling you this, ok? Don't tell her anything else, please. No. No, no, and no. There he is!

Tad: Hey.

Jake: There he is! Man of the hour.

Ryan: That's right.

Frankie: Hey, hey, what's the occasion here?

Tad: Just celebrating before Ryan takes the big plunge.

Jake: Yes, that's right. And it's about time. You and Greenlee have been through so much. You've been through hell.

Frankie: They're not the only ones, but it's not like he gives a damn.

Jake: Hey, you think that Ryan's nervous?

Tad: Nah. Ryan? Maybe a little.

Jake: Maybe a little, you know why?

Jake and Tad: Only the most important day of your life!

Ryan: Really? Do I need that right now? We're here to relax.

Frankie: Hey, we're all relaxed, buddy. Everything's just great for you.

Ryan: If you got something to say to me, man, just come out and say it.

Jesse: Call an ambulance.

Greenlee: Kendall. Kendall, open your eyes.

David: Will you open this door so I can help her?

Jesse: How do I know you didn't cause this?

David: Are you out of your mind? She was gasping for air and then she collapsed. Would you at least check her breathing, damn it?

Greenlee: I can't feel a pulse or anything.

Jesse: I'm barely getting anything here.

Greenlee: No!

David: I'm telling you, if you don't open this door right now, she's gonna die!

Greenlee: Jesse, please. Kendall, hang in there.

David: Come on, come on!

Greenlee: Hang in there. Kendall, can you hear me? Hang in there.

David: Pulse is really weak. We're losing her.

Greenlee: I'm begging you. Save her.

David: Ok, help me lay her flat.

Greenlee: Ok, all right. Hang in there. All right. Come on, Kendall. Come on. Come on!

[Kendall inhales sharply]

Greenlee: Oh, thank God.

David: She's back.

Greenlee: Ok.

Jesse: Greenlee and I will get her to the hospital. He gets back to his cell.

Greenlee: Whoa! Shouldn't David come along? What if something happens along the way? Jesse!

Jesse: All right. Listen. We'll get her to the car. You ride along with your personal guard.

David: Ok.

Greenlee: Come on.

Jesse: Here we go.

Ryan: What's your problem?

Frankie: You want to hear my problem? I'll tell you my problem.

Scott: His problem, my problem -- there's no problem. I'm sure Frankie just had a few beers. Randi was on you about leaving that seat up again, and you're just projecting, right?

Frankie: No. I forgot to take out the trash.

Tad: A toast! To marital bliss.

Jake: Yes, a toast to myself and my beautiful wife.

Tad: Why do you always have to make it about you?

Ryan: How about to good friends and getting together and hanging out? Maybe we can do that more often, please.

Jake: I said that.

Scott: Still hotheaded, just like when we were kids.

Frankie: I didn't know Lavery would be here celebrating himself.

Scott: Come on, he's not worth it, especially after having a few beers, ok? It's not gonna help Madison any.

Frankie: You know?

Scott: Don't you have a beautiful wife to get home to? Hey, what's going on?

Madison: I had to get out of the office. Figured I would just eat here.

Jake: Stop. Let me please make this toast. To Ryan and Greenlee.

[Glasses clink]

Madison: On second thought, I'll take that order to go.

Scott: Yeah, well, I deliver, too.

Frankie: So, how you doing?

Madison: Good. Better than good. I'm great. You can back off.

Tad: So -- a Valentine's Day wedding.

Ryan: Mm-hmm.

Jake: Yeah.

Tad: You really sure you want to tempt fate?

Jake: You should have done it on Groundhog's Day. No. Arbor Day.

Tad: When's Arbor Day?

Jake: I don't know when Arbor Day is.

Ryan: February 14th.

Tad: No. That's Valentine's Day.

Ryan: Of course. That's when we're having the wedding. Guys, it used to be the worst day of our life. Now we're gonna make it the best.

[Cell phone rings]

Jake: I like that. And who is that?

Ryan: Let me see.

Jake: It's the new ball and chain.

[Cell phone rings]

Ryan: Well, who is that?

Jake: What do you mean? Ooh.

Tad: Ooh, it's a text from Amanda. "I heart you."

Ryan: Hey, what are you doing? Checking up on me already? Ok, I'll be right there.

Jake: What do you mean? Where are you going?

Tad: What's up?

Ryan: I gotta go.

Jake: Stop. We're just getting started.

Ryan: Can I get a cab, please? Will you call me a cab?

Mike: Ditching your boys?

Ryan: Yeah, it's an emergency. Please.

Madison: Hey, everything ok?

Ryan: Kendall -- she collapsed.

Madison: What? Forget the cab. I'm driving. I need to borrow that.

Scott: Yeah, yeah.

Erica: Jack, when the shooting took place, Kendall had just lost Zach. And I know that she pulled the trigger to save Ryan or make David pay or both, but something happened to make her block that.

Jack: And now it's coming back to her?

Erica: And I think now, knowing the truth would help her.

Jack: When she does realize the truth, what are you gonna do, try to convince her to keep quiet?

Erica: It's David I want to keep quiet.

Jack: David?

Erica: David knows.

Jack: David knows that Kendall's the one that shot him?

Erica: Mm-hmm. Yes, and now he's using that to try to blackmail me. He has called my phone. He's left me messages. He's threatening that if I don't keep him out of prison, he's going to tell the police what really happened on that roof.

[Cell phone rings]

Jack: Greenlee. Hello? Honey, honey, slow down. I can't understand a word you're saying. Erica's with me here. We'll be right there.

Erica: What is it?

Jack: It's Kendall.

Cara: Hello.

Griffin: Where's your roommate?

Cara: Nice to see you, too.

Kendall: She blew off another appointment.

Cara: Oh. You really don't like rejection.

Griffin: I don't like wasting my time. Why should I worry about her health if she won't?

Cara: Hmm. But -- you are worried.

Griffin: She's a patient.

Cara: And?

Griffin: And she has kids. And her husband died, and I feel like --

Cara: You feel?

Griffin: I feel like I should bill her for my lost time.

Cara: Whatever.

Griffin: What are you getting at?

Cara: She's trying to live her life. You're treating her like an invalid.

Griffin: I'm not treating her --

Cara: Do you remember Billy's birthday party? I know you remember. I was 30 minutes late. That's it. Just 30 minutes late taking my medicine, and what did you do? You came storming in with that look on your face.

Griffin: It was a bowling party.

Cara: We were having fun. It wasn't lethal. I get why she wants you to back off.

David: Page Dr. Castillo immediately.

Griffin: What happened?

David: She came to visit me in jail. She was in distress, had trouble breathing. Respiratory arrest. She collapsed.

Griffin: For how long?

David: Just a few minutes. I resuscitated her. She's breathing on her own right now, but we need to restart pulmonary therapy right away.

Griffin: Ok, I need a nurse. Get a line in -- D5W. I want some gases on her now while she's still on room air. Bring her in here. Come on.

Jesse: Where is he?

Greenlee: Down the hall. Ryan, where are you?

Ryan: Hey, thanks for the coffee. You sure you don't want it?

Madison: I gave up caffeine.

Ryan: You gave up caffeine? You were like a caffeine junkie.

Madison: Well, uh --

Ryan: What happened?

Madison: It was keeping me up at night. There should be two sugars in the glove compartment.

Ryan: Oh, thanks. You remember.

Madison: I remember everything.

Ryan: Kendall's gonna be ok, I promise you. She's honestly one of the toughest women I've ever met.

Madison: Yeah, I know. She lost the man she loves, and she's finding a way to move on. Kendall's been an inspiration and a real friend.

Ryan: Glad to hear that. So the last time we were in a car together, we were on a road trip to D.C.

Madison: That concert.

Ryan: Yeah, I had a dozen cups of coffee on that trip.

Madison: You were pretty wired.

Ryan: Yeah.

Madison: Didn't want you falling asleep behind the wheel.

Ryan: No, I think I was up for about three days.

Madison: Yeah.

Ryan: But if that didn't keep me up, your singing probably would have.

Madison: My singing is good.

Ryan: Yes, it is pretty good, actually.

Madison: I'll sing something right now. Any requests?

Ryan: You know, I'm fine for now. Let me think about that. That was a fun trip.

Madison: Yeah. Kendall's gonna be ok.

Ryan: It's such a clear night. It's unbelievable. You can see just about every star in the sky. Whoa! A shooting star.

Madison: Where?

Ryan: You missed it. You still wish on those?

Madison: No, I don't know why I ever did that. That was silly.

Ryan: That wasn't silly. That was sweet.

[Cell phone rings]

Ryan: Greenlee.

Greenlee: Where are you?

Ryan: I had a couple beers so I hitched a ride. How's Kendall?

Greenlee: The doctor's in with her now.

Ryan: Ok. Be there soon. I could use a shooting star right about now. You could make another wish.

Madison: Told you I don't do that anymore.

Erica: How is she?

Bianca: No word yet.

Jack: How's that foot?

Greenlee: It's fine. It's not important right now.

Erica: So, was Kendall at Fusion? Was she working too hard?

Greenlee: No, she was at the jail --

Jack: What?

Greenlee: With David.

Erica: Why? Why on earth would she be --

Greenlee: Actually, it turned out to be a really good thing. If David hadn't been there, she might not have made it to the hospital.

David: Her lungs are still very wet, so she's gonna need more antibiotic.

Griffin: Thanks, but I got this.

David: Look, I may be a little weak, but I can still treat the patient.

Griffin: No, you can't. You need to leave. Now.

Greenlee: Madison gave you a ride?

Ryan: Yeah, I didn't want to wait for a cab. Any more news on Kendall?

Greenlee: No, nothing yet. Madison, wait.

Greenlee: I just -- thanks for giving Ryan a ride, for bringing him here.

Madison: Don't worry about it. I'm gonna get some water.

Bianca: Hey, are you all right?

Madison: Yeah. I really wish everyone would stop asking me that.

Bianca: Oh, you left the office so fast, I thought I might have said something to offend you.

Madison: You didn't. I gotta go.

Ryan: Hey, listen, about Madison driving me over here -- I wasn't trying to hide anything from you.

Greenlee: Ryan, my best friend is fighting for her life. Madison is the last thing on my mind right now.

Ryan: I'm sorry. Finding Kendall like that passed out must have been horrible.

Greenlee: It was even more horrible finding her with David.

David: You can't push me out. I own this hospital. Now, if you'll excuse me --

Griffin: You have no medical license.

David: What does that matter? I just saved her life.

Griffin: Because no one else was there. That's not the case anymore.

David: What is this? You trying to impress me to show off?

Griffin: Listen, if I had it my way, I'd say go ahead, but if one of your friends from around here walks in on you treating Kendall, you could end up in prison permanently.

Jesse: It's time to go, Hayward.

David: Look, I'm in the middle of something here.

Jesse: Not anymore. The van is almost here. You're still going to prison tonight.

Jake: No, no. Yeah, right. [Mumbling to himself]

Tad: Well, if it isn't my own little Mata Hari.

Cara: Hi.

Tad: Hey.

Cara: So --

Tad: What?

Cara: Did you come here to thank me for the information that I gave you, or what?

Tad: Far be it from me to make you feel good about yourself, but as a matter of fact, I'm covering a little ground thanks to this schedule you gave me. It's coming in handy.

Cara: Yeah?

Tad: Mm-hmm.

Cara: Ok, so does this mean you'll let me help you with the case?

Tad: No, Cara. I can't.

Cara: Why not?

Tad: Because it might get dicey. I don't want to put you at risk.

Cara: Risk? Really? Jake didn't say something to you, did he?

Tad: About what?

Cara: Oh, never mind. I'm just -- kkkk! Anyway, just know that I'm working on some theories, ok?

Tad: I'd prefer if you didn't, but I am hanging onto your schedule.

Cara: Ok.

Tad: Thank you.

Cara: Partner.

Tad: Not yet.

Cara: Very soon!

Tad: Lord.

Scott: I knew it. As soon as I saw you leaving Ryan. Is there anything I can do?

Madison: Get me out of here.

Scott: Ok. Where to?

Madison: Your place?

Scott: Yeah.

Bianca: Can I get you some tea?

Ricky: Hey. I was visiting a sick parishioner when I heard about Kendall. How is she?

Bianca: No news yet. Mom, Uncle Jack, you remember Reverend Torres?

Jack: Yes, of course. Nice to see you again.

Ricky: Please. Call me Ricky.

Erica: Kendall has told us how supportive you've been. We're very grateful.

Ricky: Anything I can do. So what happened?

Bianca: Come with me to the cafeteria. I'll fill you in.

Ricky: Ok.

Erica: Jack, Kendall was with David when she collapsed. Maybe he confronted her about shooting him.

Jack: That would be playing the last card he has in his hands. I doubt that.

Erica: Well, I have to find out, because if he did this to -- excuse me. Doctor, how is she?

Griffin: Stable for the moment.

Jack: Is this a relapse of her pneumonia?

Griffin: That's part of it, but we've discovered something else, something more serious. Weakness in the lower part of her aorta.

Jack: Wait, define weakness.

Griffin: It's ballooning outward.

Erica: Are you saying that it could burst?

Griffin: We have some further testing to do, but if I'm right, it's expanding. An aortic abdominal aneurysm.

Erica: Oh, my God. Can you help her?

Griffin: With surgery, we can fix the threat. We've already booked an O.R., but we have to move. It could burst at any time.

Erica: Well, then do it and don't let that happen.

Scott: Ahem. Yeah. This is it. This is the maid's day off, so usually it's much, much -- please, would you sit? Thank you.

Madison: It's nice. I like the lamp.

Scott: Yeah. If I'd have known you were coming, I, uh --

Madison: Don't worry about it. I'm just glad to be far away from Ryan and Greenlee.

Scott: Yeah. Hey, you want a beer?

Madison: Can't.

Scott: No, 'course you can't. What am I -- oh! Want a soda, something, or a  -- big can at least, maybe?

Madison: Thank you. I'm fine.

Scott: Whew. Um -- we could watch TV or something.


Cara: What? Jake.

Jake: I'm sorry you came all the way down here. I feel bad. I could have updated you on the phone.

Tad: No, I came to see Cara. She slipped me this work schedule. It's really paying --

Jake: What did I tell you? I said I don't want her anywhere in this --

Tad: Oh, come on, Jake. She's been dodging bullets in a third-world country.

Jake: I said no! I said no. You want schedules, you want anything from this hospital, you come to me.

Tad: What do you care about --

Jake: We are short staffed on doctors. If I lose another one because of you, 'cause I hired my own brother --

Cara: Oh. That's lovely. Really. I can't believe you did that.

Jake: Do what? What did I do?

Cara: You changed my assignments.

Jake: So what? I'm the boss, ok? I'm in charge.

Cara: You know what, you're not in charge of me, so change it back. Here.

Erica: What are her chances?

Griffin: A ruptured aortic aneurysm is fatal 60% of the time.

Erica: Then what are you waiting for? Do the surgery.

Griffin: We've already booked the operating room.

Erica: What, then? Is there some other problem?

Griffin: She's awake. Go talk to her. Let me know if you think she's up for this.

Erica: What do you mean?

Griffin: I mean, she's been blowing off doctor's appointments. Kendall's attitude about her health is -- talk to her. Attitude is important. I can perform the surgery perfectly, but after that, she's gonna have to work, too. They're prepping her for surgery now. I'll be back to check in on her.

Erica: Oh, what if David did tell Kendall about the shooting? And if he didn't, I can't tell her, not now.

Jack: The only important thing right now is that she get through this surgery.

Erica: I know. Look, she's been having additional visions of David lately, more and more. Now my voice is coming into it. She's getting very close. A sight, a sound, anything could just put her over the edge and --

[Cell phone rings]

Erica: Take the call. I'm gonna go see Kendall.

Jack: The call can -- wait.

Griffin: No. Dr. Hayward will not be part of this. He's waiting to be transferred to prison.

Nurse: But he's shouting about owning the hospital, firing everyone if he doesn't get to see Kendall Slater.

Greenlee: Kendall was finally in a good place, and now this.

Ryan: She's gonna beat this. Everything will be fine. You guys will be back at Fusion getting manicures and ruling the world in no time.

Greenlee: Unless something else happens. Why do I always feel I'm looking over my shoulder waiting for the next tragedy?

Ryan: Nothing is gonna hurt us again, not this time.

Greenlee: You're right -- because we won't let it.

Griffin: Did your mother leave already?

Kendall: My mother was never here.

Griffin: That's weird. I told her you wanted to see her. Hate to say it, but this is what you get for blowing me off.

Kendall: Not all women find you irresistible.

Griffin: I'm serious, Kendall. You have an aneurysm in your aorta. It's very serious. We can fix the problem with surgery. I've already booked the operating room.

Kendall: Then cancel it. I'm not ready for the surgery.

Griffin: No, I don't think you understand. If you don't do this, you could die.

David: You here to thank me for saving Kendall's life? Again?

Erica: May I have a moment to express my gratitude?

Guard: Be careful getting too close. I'll be right here.

David: Let's have it, Erica. Lay all that gratitude on me.

Erica: Some people are saying that you're the reason Kendall collapsed.

David: Don't believe everything you hear. As you know, there are a lot of false stories around.

Erica: Why did you ask Kendall to come and see you?

David: I just thought it would be a nice reminder to you of the stakes.

Erica: Did you say something to her?

David: No, but that doesn't mean I won't.

Erica: I'm not a miracle worker, David.

David: I'm not expecting miracles, Erica. I just want you to talk to the governor. Tick tock, Erica. I'm still in these cuffs, and Kendall is so close by.

Cara: Why are you messing with my assignments?

Jake: "Messing with your assignments"! Scheduling is part of my job description.

Cara: You took me off all infectious diseases, Jake.

Jake: Really?

Cara: Yeah.

Jake: Coincidence.

Cara: Really? I know what I had. I had flu, I had hepatitis, and I had whooping cough. And now -- magic! I'm on milk allergy?

Jake: No -- yes. The guy's covered head to toe in hives. Have some compassion for the guy.

Cara: Do you think this is funny?

Jake: No, I don't think it's funny, Cara. I think you had leukemia, ok?

Cara: When I was a child, Jake.

Jake: When you were a child, your immune system was severely compromised. I am doing you a favor!

Cara: You know what, I did not tell you about my sickness, so that you would treat me like everybody else. Shielding me, protecting me, keeping me from doing what I am meant to do. You were different. You weren't like the rest of my family, and that's why -- don't change now that you know the truth.

Jake: The truth.

Scott: Where is this coming from?

Madison: I don't want to talk.

Scott: All right.

Greenlee: What did you and Madison talk about on the ride over?

Ryan: I thought you weren't thinking about Madison.

Greenlee: I'm trying to distract myself from thinking about Kendall right now.

Ryan: We didn't really talk much about anything.

Greenlee: Anything new going on with her?

Ryan: Not that she told me.

Kendall: Don't I get any time to think about this?

Griffin: Every minute we wait puts you at greater risk.

Kendall: Ok. Can I at least see my kids first?

Griffin: I'm sorry.

Kendall: Please. It'll just be a little while. You can give me medication or something to --

Griffin: No, unfortunately, there's not a magic pill that can fix this.

Kendall: Please. Please. I just lost my husband. I need time to heal and rest and be with my kids.

Griffin: You'll have that time, but not until we fix the aneurysm. Listen, Kendall, I know you're afraid of the surgery, but nobody's better than me.

Kendall: I'm not. I just miss him. I just miss Zach. I miss Zach so much. It's like there's this wave that keeps coming over me, and it's trying to pull me under, and I can't get out. I'm fighting it. I'm doing everything I can. I'm throwing myself into everything I can, but nothing works. Every night, I climb into bed alone. Every morning, I still wake up alone. And that's how it's always going to be.

Griffin: Kendall -- I know you're grieving, but is there something more going on here?

Kendall: What do you mean?

Griffin: I mean, do you want to live?

David: You need to keep this in mind, Erica. I was behind bars, and I still managed to get to Kendall, saved her life.

Erica: That was the last time you will ever see her.

David: Ever is a very long time. Now, your daughter still needs surgery, and I would hate to see what would happen if she was being rolled down to the O.R., and she suddenly realized that she was the one who shot me, that her dear, devoted mother had been lying to her all this time. That would be quite a shock for a woman who already has a weakened heart, don't you think?

Erica: Don't you go anywhere near my daughter.

Griffin: Trying to tell me you're giving up? You don't want to live anymore?

Kendall: What I want is to have my life back. I need Zach. I need Zach. My boys need Zach.

Griffin: And you, Kendall. They need you.

Kendall: Don't you think I know that? That's what's making this whole thing so hard. I lost my husband. And now there are these things floating around in my head, like parts of a puzzle that I just cannot put back together, all right? So excuse me for not being at my best.

Griffin: That's more like it.

Kendall: What?

Griffin: Zach told me all about you. He told me you never gave up, never backed down. You're feisty as hell. Well, get angry, Kendall. Show some fight, because that may be the only thing that saves your life.
