Erica: Where did you go? I thought we could have a nice talk.
Distorted voice's voice: Patience, Erica. I am busy now.
Erica: That's a recording. Where are you?
Jack: Krystal, I am not going to let you quit.
Krystal: Jack, it's not your call.
Jack: Why? Because we had a moment?
Krystal: Because I made a complete fool of myself.
Jack: No, you didn't. No more than I did. Nothing happened, so nobody looks foolish. Come on, Krystal. We're friends?
Krystal: If we're gonna talk, let's be honest. All right?
Jack: Let's be honest, and in a very ungentlemanly fashion, I'm gonna go first. I like you in my life. I like talking to you. I like working with you.
Krystal: I can't.
Jack: That's honest. Why not?
Krystal: Because I can't make Erica stay gone.
Caleb: What you up to?
Asher: I'm trying to find Erica.
Caleb: You what? Why would you do that?
Asher: I know you said it was a done deal, but I still figured that you'd want to find her.
Caleb: You figured wrong.
Ricky: I stopped by your place before. Where are you?
Kendall: I've just been running a bunch of errands today. I could really use the break. So where are you gonna take me?
Ricky: I thought I'd surprise you.
Kendall: Surprise me? Uh, yeah. No, no. I'm not really a fan of surprises, so I'd feel much better if you would just tell me where we're going.
Ricky: Ok. I was thinking that since our last picnic got interrupted, we could --
Kendall: You want to meet at the same place in the meadow?
Ricky: Actually --
Kendall: Great. Ok. That works for me. I'll meet you at the park now.
Griffin: The park?
Kendall: Yeah. It's a wide-open spot. There's tons of people around. I need to rope him in, and I got to get his guard down. I just need one solid piece of evidence that he's a murderer.
Griffin: Ok. You go ahead. I'll be right behind you.
Kendall: No, Griffin, no. You can't risk being seen. Anyone could turn you in.
Griffin: That's my risk.
Kendall: Ryan already has somebody watching me.
Griffin: I know, but I want to be there, too.
Kendall: Thank you. Thank you for the pep talk and just for everything. All right. I'm ready to do this.
Griffin: And I'm with you. Ok? All right.
Krystal: Erica's gonna come back eventually. And the two of you are gonna work it out, and then you're gonna walk down the aisle just like you planned. And in the meantime, I don't want to do anything that's gonna ruin our friendship.
Jack: I don't want to do anything like that either, but I don't think quitting is the only solution.
Krystal: It's the way it's got to be.
Jack: Krystal, you're the best legal assistant I've ever had. I'm up to my ears in casework, ok? Who is gonna help me?
Krystal: What about the girl? She subbed for me a couple weeks ago. She was good, right?
Jack: Where did you find her? She thought "affidavit" was somebody's name.
Krystal: Don't make this harder than it has to be, ok? It's for the best.
Jack: I just think there has to be another way.
Krystal: I -- not that I can see. Excuse me. I just have to get a little air.
Caleb: Erica made her choice. That's it.
Asher: Come on. So there's nothing that you would say to her if you had the chance?
Caleb: If I had something to say to her, it would be about our business partnership. But what difference does it make? She can't hear it anyway.
Asher: What if she could? What if I told you I could throw it on video and e-mail it to her?
Caleb: Nope. Bad idea.
Asher: When you obviously have something important to say to her, I'm giving you a way to do it. Why would you turn that down? Come on. If she was sitting right here, what would you say?
Caleb: Really? I would say, look, um, Erica, whatever happened down there in St. Barts, we have a business to run together. I've invested a lot in it. We both invested a lot in it together and -- turn this around. I'm not gonna do this. Come on. Stop it.
Asher: I think we got enough.
Caleb: What are you talking about? You recorded that?
Asher: Yeah. She's gonna love it.
Caleb: No, no. I don't think so. Where's "delete"?
Asher: Why would you do that?
Caleb: Because it's not a game.
Erica's voice: What do you want from me? I can't eat. You could be watching, and I need you to think that I'm wasting away. Then maybe you'll be forced to act. Mom. My babies. I will come back to you. I will.
Bianca: I know you miss the boys, but it's not gonna be much longer now.
Kendall: So you talked to Ricky?
Bianca: Yeah. I told him everything you wanted me to say. It made me physically ill, but I did it.
Kendall: Ok. So he thinks that my marriage was over, that Zach and I were just pretending to be ok?
Bianca: The words barely made it out of my mouth.
Kendall: Thank you, Binks. This is huge. Maybe now he won't hold back.
Bianca: Are you sure you're up for this, facing Ricky alone?
Kendall: I want him to rot in prison for the rest of his miserable life, and this is the only way. Ok, you know what? Actually, I see him, so I'm gonna go. Bye. Ahem. Hi!
Kendall: Hello. This is nice. Oh, thank you. God, I'm so glad that you called. This is exactly what I need.
Ricky: Good. I hope that you're hungry.
Kendall: Yeah, I'm starving, only I feel so bad I didn't bring anything.
Ricky: Oh, stop it. Don't worry. It's a good thing that I am an excellent planner. I'm really looking forward to finally having some alone time with you.
Kendall: So am I.
Distorted voice: I thought you weren't interested in that.
Erica: You're back.
Distorted voice: How do you know I wasn't here all along?
Erica: I can tell, Krystal. So what is this all about anyway, this book? It's about my past.
Distorted voice: What do you feel when you look at it?
Erica: I feel that my family needs to see me. They need to know that I'm all right.
Distorted voice: Don't get upset.
Erica: I have been stuck in this room for days! My family must be worried sick!
Distorted voice: You're right. I don't want your family to worry. How about a compromise?
Erica: What kind of a compromise?
Distorted voice: I'll send an e-mail to Kendall and Bianca, letting them know you're ok, but I won't show you their responses unless you start cooperating.
Erica: Cooperate how?
Distorted voice: Stop fighting me so hard, and you might find out.
Erica: All right, fine. What do you want me to do?
Distorted voice: Tell me about the best day of your life.
Asher: Sometimes you got to step outside of your comfort zone, ok?
Caleb: Thank you very much. I will. I'll do it my own way, in my own time.
Asher: Nice. Erica just sent Kendall and Bianca an e-mail.
Caleb: How do you know that?
Asher: I hacked into their accounts.
Caleb: You what?
Kendall: So this whole planning thing -- is this a requirement of your job?
Ricky: It helps. But I don't want to talk about work right now.
Kendall: It is your life, isn't it?
Ricky: Not anymore. Well, I mean there's a lot more to my life.
Ricky: So you ok with us being out in public like this, the two of us?
Kendall: Why wouldn't I be?
Ricky: I don't know. Maybe people would see us, start talking?
Kendall: Who cares? If they want to talk, let them talk.
Ricky: I just want to be respectful.
Kendall: You always are. What is it?
Ricky: So it doesn't bother you that people might think that you're disrespecting Zach's memory, even if --
Kendall: Even if what?
Ricky: Even if you don't feel that way. You know what? I shouldn't even go there. I'm sorry.
Kendall: No, it's ok. It's all right.
Ricky: We spent a lot of time together after you lost Zach, and you opened up to me, and I helped you with your grief. But I always felt that there was something else, like, something that you were holding back.
Kendall: What would I be holding back?
Ricky: You and Zach? Your marriage? Was everything ok at the end, or was there something else going on that you felt that you couldn't tell me about?
Kendall: Wow. You are probably the most perceptive man I have ever met.
Ricky: Not really.
Kendall: Yes. Yes, you are, especially when it comes to me. You have this way of breaking through these walls that I put up and getting to the truth. And the truth is I did something terrible, and I don't know if you're gonna be able to understand it.
Caleb: You're invading their privacy.
Asher: Come on, admit it. You're a little impressed. And besides, once they read the e-mail from Erica, they're gonna tell everyone anyways.
Caleb: You're breaking the law.
Asher: I'm trying to do you a favor. And you're really gonna lecture me on right and wrong?
Caleb: You bet I am.
Asher: Look, I don't turn my back when things get hard.
Caleb: That's not what I'm doing.
Asher: No, you're not fighting for Erica.
Caleb: It's none of your business.
Asher: Why don't you just go back up to that mountain, so you don't have to deal with anything or anybody -- women, computers, me.
Erica: "Dear girls, just a quick note to let you know I'm all right. Taking some time, enjoying the view. See you soon. X-O-X-O"? That's all you said?
Distorted voice: I wasn't going to mention your lovely setup here.
Erica: But you barely said anything.
Distorted voice: I did you a huge favor, and this is how you thank me?
Erica: But at least I'll hear back from them.
Distorted voice: If you hold up your end of the deal. Get the scrapbook. Tell me the best day of your life.
Erica: That's private.
Distorted voice: We're in private, and I'd love to hear about your life.
Erica: You told me you already know all about me. You know everything.
Distorted voice: But I want to hear more from you, your thoughts. Your perspective -- take me through it page by page.
Distorted voice: Go along with this, there may be more rewards -- bigger than e-mail privileges.
Erica: You said that you read my autobiography, so it's all in there.
Distorted voice: That's not the same as a firsthand account. We're getting along so well now, Erica. Don't ruin it, especially when you're so close to getting what you want.
Erica: The only thing I want is to get out of here.
Distorted voice: Fight me on this, you can be sure that won't happen. You're looking at all those faces, trying to figure out who I am.
Erica: I told you I already know who you are, Krystal. What I am trying to figure out is how you managed to pull all this off. Somebody's got to be helping you. You certainly didn't get me all the way back from St. Barts to Pine Valley by yourself.
Distorted voice: You seem pretty confident.
Erica: You've always been jealous of me, of my relationship with Jack, of my fame, of my success. Is this scrapbook of my life the life you wish you had?
Distorted voice: You think so?
Erica: With all these pictures of Jack, of course, I think so. It's been very obvious for months how much you want him. You knew very well that he'd never give up on me. That's why you had to make him think that I had given up on him. And I bet you think that if you keep me here a little while longer, that then he'll turn to you. You are wrong, Krystal. That will never happen, Krystal.
Distorted voice: I am not Krystal. Krystal couldn't hold a candle to you.
Jack: Yes, your honor, I did file those briefs. You -- penalize me? Your honor, I have proof that those briefs were delivered yesterday. Uh, yeah, right here. Do you want the clerk's initials that signed off on it? No, there's no reason to apologize. Have the expert reports been filed? Yes. I have them right in front of me. Sure. Just a second. Let me just get a -- thank you. Go right ahead.
Kendall: I just feel so awful. I feel guilty.
Ricky: Kendall, you're safe with me.
Kendall: This is so hard. Uh, in the end, Zach and I were having problems, problems that we tried to solve but we couldn't. We did everything we could, but --
Ricky: Hey. It's ok.
Kendall: When he died, I wasn't in love with him anymore.
Ricky: I'm so sorry to hear that.
Kendall: We did everything we could. We tried to fix it. We tried to find our way back to each other, but nothing worked. It was too late. It was over.
Ricky: How long had this been going on?
Kendall: A while. The boys and I -- we came back to Pine Valley months before Zach did.
Ricky: He had business to tie up, right?
Kendall: That's what we told everyone, but that was a lie. Zach didn't come back, because he didn't want to. He didn't want to be with me.
Ricky: Wow. That must've been so, so difficult.
Kendall: It was hell having to stay married to a man I didn't love and having to pretend for the boys. But the worst part was after Zach died.
Ricky: What do you mean?
Kendall: Everybody was offering their condolences, telling us how perfect Zach and I were together, but I knew. I knew it wasn't real.
Ricky: Kendall -- you could've told me.
Kendall: If I had felt this comfortable with you, if I had known that I could trust you, then I would have -- that I could trust you with anything, completely trust you.
Ricky: You feel better getting that off your chest?
Kendall: I always feel better when I'm with you. That's why I am so grateful to have you in my life.
Ricky: I'm the lucky one.
Ricky: Who's there?
Kendall: Where are you going?
Ricky: I think someone's watching us.
Caleb: Miranda Center said you'd be here.
Bianca: I'm just picking up a donation.
Caleb: You got a minute?
Bianca: Sure. But I have no idea where my mother is, if that's what this is about.
Caleb: Asher hacked into your e-mail. He thought I wanted to track your mother down.
Bianca: Did you?
Bianca: So you fly all the way down to see her before her wedding, and then you don't care about her anymore?
Caleb: Your mother and I are business partners.
Bianca: Wherever she is, I doubt she's thinking about business. My guess is she's trying to figure out a way to reconnect with Uncle Jack.
Caleb: That's up to her. But we do have a business to run, and I thought it would be good to get that message to her.
Bianca: So Asher hacked into my e-mail account?
Caleb: Yes. He thought that it would be clever to send a video pitch to her on the computer.
Bianca: A video pitch to convince Mom to come home?
Bianca: That's actually a really good idea. Maybe I should make a video and send it to her. At least then she may respond with something other than "I'm all right."
Caleb: Your mother's gonna do exactly what she wants to do when she wants to do it.
Bianca: But we need her now. Kendall and I both do.
Caleb: Well, we all do.
Jack: You are a lifesaver.
Krystal: And you are a brilliant attorney. I am brilliant at sweating the small stuff so that you don't have to, if I do say so myself.
Jack: You don't have to say it. I'm saying it. What are you saying?
Krystal: I guess I'm trying to say I don't want to leave you.
Jack: But I thought you were concerned that if we went on like this --
Krystal: Are you gonna give me another chance to quit, or are you just gonna say "Welcome back"?
Jack: Welcome back.
Erica: Where should I start?
Distorted voice: Start at the beginning.
Erica: Jeff Martin was my first husband. Jeff wanted to be a doctor. I wanted to be a doctor's wife. I was desperate to get out of my mother's house, and I thought that Jeff would be the ticket. But he was busy working all the time, and I was just stuck in this little apartment.
Distorted voice: You felt trapped.
Erica: Yes, I certainly did. The whole world was waiting out there for me.
Distorted voice: You became a model.
Erica: Yes. Yes, I did. Oh, that was incredibly exciting. It was my first taste of celebrity. I finally felt that I was where I belonged, where I was destined to be.
Distorted voice: I know how you feel.
Erica: Well, my career took off, but not my marriage. It didn't work out. I asked Jeff for a divorce.
Distorted voice: Then came Phil Brent.
Erica: Phil just wanted me at home all the time, and maybe he was still in love with Tara. I don't know. I eventually let him go. Tom. Tom was really such a nice man, but completely wrong for me, because he wanted to settle down. He wanted a home. He wanted a family. And I wanted glamour, adventure, fame.
Distorted voice: But you and Adam Chandler?
Erica: The second time I married him was because he blackmailed me into it, but the first time it was sheer ambition. I had just written "Raising Kane," and he loved it. And he was going to make me a great success. He was gonna make a movie.
Distorted voice: But you were in love with Mike Roy.
Erica: Travis Montgomery, Bianca's father.
Distorted voice: And his brother Jackson came into the picture. But first, there was Dimitri.
Erica: Yes, Dimitri. He was a count with his very own castle. I will always have a very special place in my heart for Dimitri. I will have a special place in my heart for all of these men.
Distorted voice: Does it still hurt, the divorces?
Erica: I really believed in my marriages at the time. I did. I really did think that they would last.
Distorted voice: You still think that about Jackson, even though it didn't work out with him either?
Erica: It will work. It will definitely work this time. It will work this time. I just have to get back to him before --
Distorted voice: What was that?
Erica: Nothing. Nothing. I didn't say anything.
Distorted voice: You were going to say "Before it's too late."
Ricky: I could've sworn I heard something.
Kendall: Ok, it doesn't matter. We were in the middle of something important.
Ricky: No, Kendall, somebody could've been watching us.
Kendall: Why would you think that?
Ricky: Yeah, you're right. No reason. Anyway, how about some more champagne?
Kendall: Um, I'm sorry. I was looking so forward to this, but all that talk about my marriage kind of dimmed the mood a little bit.
Ricky: Come on. We're already here. We might as well enjoy it, right?
Kendall: How about another time?
Ricky: No. There's always another time. I want to be with you.
Kendall: I want to be with you, too. I do. But I want to be at my best, you know? And you've waited so long. You've been so patient. You can wait a little longer, right?
Ricky: Of course.
Kendall: Thank you. Ok. Ok. I will -- I'll see you.
Caleb: Asher, hold up.
Asher: I don't need another lecture, ok?
Caleb: I'm not gonna lecture you. I just want to have a word with you.
Bianca: Hey, Uncle Jack?
Bianca: I'm glad I found you. Your phone keeps going to voice mail.
Jack: Yeah, I was actually on with a judge. Sorry about that. What's up?
Bianca: I have an idea for a way to reach out to Mom.
Jack: Let's hear it.
Bianca: I thought we could make a video, have all the people Mom cares about tell her all the reasons why she should come home.
Jack: What makes you think your mother's even checking her e-mail?
Bianca: Because she sent one to Kendall and me this morning. Did you get anything?
Jack: Nope, not me. So what did she have to say, I wonder.
Bianca: She said she's ok --
Bianca: Something about "enjoying the view."
Jack: Oh, good.
Bianca: It just means she's communicating, and maybe she's open to receiving something back. Ok, just check this out.
Miranda: Hi. It's Miranda, Gaby, Spike, and Ian. We miss you so much. Please come home. We love you.
Spike: We love you.
Bianca: What do you think?
Jack: I think your mother will be very touched.
Bianca: I'm gonna ask Kendall and Opal to record something, too, but you're our cleanup hitter.
Jack: I don't know. I don't even know what I would say. This is all such a big mess.
Bianca: But here is your chance to clean it up.
Jack: To take things into my own hands. Ok. When do you want to do this?
Bianca: Whenever you're ready.
Erica: You have no idea how I feel. You want to know the best day of my life? It's the day I walk out of here and marry Jackson.
Distorted voice: There's the Erica Kane I know -- strong, confident. This Erica I'd pay to see.
Erica: Why pay when you can just lock me in a room?
Distorted voice: That was a compliment.
Erica: Well, show's over!
Distorted voice: Already? We're just getting started.
Erica: I'm done.
Distorted voice: If I were to bring you an order of risotto from that Italian place you like so much, could we do some more?
Erica: I'm on a hunger strike, remember?
Distorted voice: You can't refuse to eat much longer.
Erica: Just watch me. What is the point of all this? Why don't you just tell me?! Surely you must want to move on, so please just tell me! Hello? I'm talking to you! Hello! Oh, great! So you're gone again? Please, Jack. Please be trying to find me.
Kendall: What the hell was that? You trying to get us killed?
Griffin: I was watching you like I said I would.
Kendall: Yes, from a distance. From a distance! It was supposed to be so that Ricky couldn't see you.
Griffin: He didn't.
Kendall: You were so close. I thought you were gonna jump out and punch him.
Griffin: I almost did.
Kendall: Why? Why? Because of that kiss?
Griffin: All you've been saying is how careful we need to be, right? No mistakes, no impulsive moves, and right out of the box you're --
Kendall: What, I'm kissing him?
Griffin: It's dangerous, ok?
Kendall: It's necessary, all right? The only way that I'm gonna convince Ricky that I'm falling in love with him is by doing that. How else would you suggest I make that happen?
Griffin: I was watching him with his hands all over you, Kendall!
Kendall: Oh, my God. It had to be done. I had to do that. I can't even believe that you're mad about this.
Griffin: I'm not mad, ok? I'm just -- listen, ok? I need you to stay focused, all right? My life's on the line here, too. I could go to jail for murder.
Kendall: Yes, I'm aware of that.
Griffin: Ok. So then be in control. Mess with his head.
Kendall: That's what I was doing.
Griffin: Looked to me like he was messing with yours!
Kendall: What?! Are you kidding me right now? Do you think I enjoyed that? Do you have any idea what I just went through? I just did one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life. Ricky needs to believe that my feelings for him are real. So I'm trying to convince him that I'm not a grieving widow, and that Zach and I weren't really in love in the end.
Griffin: What? No, you're taking this too far. You can't --
Kendall: No, don't tell me how to do this. Don't.
Griffin: I'm trying to protect you, Kendall! Don't you see what I've been doing?
Kendall: For the last time, I don't need you, ok? I don't need your help! I can do this myself, all right? It's awful. It's sickening to say that I stopped loving Zach. He was the man I was supposed to -- he was the man that I promised to love for the rest of my life. He's the man that I still say good night to every night before I close my eyes. And I'm betraying him with the man who probably killed him. I feel like I'm spitting on my husband's memory. And even though it is ripping my heart out, I have to do this, because I have no choice. Ok? So please do not ever, ever question me again, and stay the hell out of my way.
Caleb: Look, I just want to say that I know you meant well.
Asher: You seemed really pissed off.
Caleb: Do I seem pissed off a lot?
Asher: Yeah, kind of.
Caleb: Sorry about that. I appreciate your stepping up for me.
Asher: Yeah, I guess I shouldn't have hacked those accounts.
Caleb: I didn't have to come down on you so hard.
Asher: Yeah, don't worry about it. So, um, we're cool?
Caleb: Yeah, we're cool. I could use somebody I trust to help out from time to time.
Asher: I work for J.R. You know that.
Caleb: I'm not asking you to spy on him, just to lend a hand once in a while.
Asher: What's in it for me?
Caleb: Heh heh heh! Flexible hours, decent pay.
Asher: I guess I could swing that.
Asher: Now let's talk about the perks.
Jack: Hello, Erica. I love you -- you know that -- and I always will -- you probably know that, too. To be starting our life together finally, and for you to back out of our wedding that way, to just vanish, disappear with barely a word -- it's killing me. But I am trying to be patient. I'm trying to understand why you need this time so that when you do come home, there'll be no anger, no blame. But even I have limits to what I can take. You see, I want to marry you. I want to build a future -- a long, wonderful future -- with you, but I'm not going to put my life on hold forever.
Singer: Ties that never end will bring us home again
