Tad: Good Lord, woman, what are you doing? It's 1:00 in the morning.

Krystal: Tad, I'm moving out soon. I got to get organized.

Tad: Just can't wait to get away from me, can you?

Krystal: The truth is if I don't get out of here as soon as possible, I might not ever leave.

Natalia: Surprise.

Brot: What are you doing here?

Natalia: Hey, babe. Well, I decided to take tomorrow off. I thought I'd climb into bed with my new fiancÚ, but here he is, still on the clock. I heard about the Hayward arrest -- that's huge.

Brot: Yeah, it's pretty big.

Natalia: What you working on so late?

Brot: My resignation letter.

Bartender: Hey, sorry, man. We're closed.

Jake: All right.

Ryan: Get over here. He's with me. It's fine. Come on, sit down. I got a little pull around this place -- my wife owns it.

Jake: Is that right?

Ryan: Uh-huh.

Jake: Hmm. So I heard about Hayward. Nice work.

Ryan: Thank you. I'm a little wired -- that's why I'm here. I didn't want to keep Greenlee up. I know this last couple of weeks have been really tough on her.

Jake: Right. I'm sure. I just can't believe he's behind bars. You did it. You did it. You're a hero.

Kendall: Hey.

Greenlee: After I left the police station, I couldn't sleep.

Kendall: Yeah. No, me either.

Greenlee: I wanted to stay while Ryan gave his statement, but --

Kendall: But he insisted that you go home -- same as Zach. He said, "Go kiss the boys and get some rest."

Greenlee: Yeah, I can't rest -- talking to the cops, going over everything that David did.

Kendall: I can't believe that he admitted that he was a silent casino partner. He knew that Ricky was gonna take down Zach's plane.

Greenlee: Yeah, well, we're done with David. That's not why I'm here. I have an idea -- more than an idea, a revelation. You and I can look into the future and change it. 

Tad: You don't have to move.

Krystal: Yes, I do. I do, I do, I do, Tad. No, and it's not just for you and Dixie. Ok? I need my own space. I need my own life.

Tad: Well, I know how much I'm gonna miss you, but I don't think you fully realize how much you're gonna miss the nut house. No, think about it. Where else can you find a private detective, a psychic hairdresser, and two puppet shows a day?

Krystal: Never a dull moment, that's for sure. I should -- I should get back to my list, and you should go to bed.

Tad: Well, it's interesting -- a little known fact -- I happen to be excellent with lists. I don't like it to get out there and stuff, I don't like to brag, but I'm just -- it rolls off the tongue.

Krystal: Tad. Bed.

Tad: Thought you'd never ask. Sorry. It's an old habit.

Krystal: Ohh.

Scott: What you doing up?

Colby: I'm packing. You?

Scott: I was just working on the gatehouse, came in to take a break. Now, I'm not an expert, but I believe it all needs to go inside the box.

Colby: Did you know that David Hayward was arrested tonight? Apparently he was involved in that plane crash that almost killed Kendall's husband.

Scott: Wow. That's unbelievable, Colby. I mean, you look around this place, this house -- it used to be so full of life. It -- my dad, your dad, wives, kids, grandkids -- and now it's just so empty.

Colby: I know. I never in a million years would've thought I'd lose my home.

Jake: You don't like being called a hero.

Ryan: I'm used to it.

Jake: I thought I touched a nerve.

Ryan: Nope. I just don't really understand why people label me that way.

Jake: Because you rescue people.

Ryan: Ok, except I wasn't rescuing anybody this time. I was just helping bring down Hayward, and there was a bunch of us -- me, Zach, Kendall, Greenlee -- a whole team.

Jake: I, for one, appreciate it, because he tried to ruin my life, my wife, and my son's.

Ryan: And you protected them, which is what I did. I just don't think that's being a hero. I really don't. I think that's just my responsibility, that's all.

Jake: No more "H" word. No more "H" word. I can think of some other names that are worse than "hero."

Ryan: Like what?

Jake: Like being called "Joseph Martin Jr."

Kendall: Ok, wait, wait. Changing the future and trying to control stuff that we shouldn't? I don't know. This sounds a little too David Hayward-ish for me.

Greenlee: No, we're done with all the David drama. It's time for us to finally get back to our lives, our company.

Kendall: Ok. Fusion is doing great. The Fierce product line -- it's way exceeding our projections.

Greenlee: Yeah, but we need something better. We need something to take us to the next level. David was able to change people's destinies. What if we could do the same with women's faces? A computer program that allows women to see what they're gonna look like in the future, like that plastic surgery software, only we offer products to diminish what they don't want and to accentuate what they do.

Kendall: You came up with that tonight in the middle of all this craziness? Are you kidding me? It's brilliant!

Greenlee: I am best under pressure, lady.

Kendall: Yes, you are!

Greenlee: We need this, Kendall. We need a big, exciting project to get our juices flowing again. So we're on it first thing in the morning. Get some sleep. I'll see you at the office.

Kendall: No, you won't. I'm out.

Natalia: "It has been an honor serving under you, Chief, but it's time to move on."

Brot: Oh, come on, Natalia. Don't fight me on this.

Natalia: Brot, we love our work. We love each other. Babe, we're gonna have a beautiful marriage and a phenomenal life together. Hey, what is it? Something's been bothering you for a while now.

Brot: I can't keep doing this.

Natalia: Doing what?

Brot: Lying. I thought I was doing all the right things for everyone, but I was wrong. And that's the reason why I can't be a cop anymore, because I can't keep pretending that I'm on the right side of the law.

Natalia: Brot, what'd you do?

Brot: I made a horrible decision, and your whole family has suffered because of it.

Jake: Don't get me wrong. I love my father. He's amazing, and ultra respect. I wouldn't be a doctor if it wasn't for him, but I had to go off and do it my way -- around the world. I sort of ran around.

Ryan: Yeah, but you came back.

Jake: Yeah, but the thing was I was never planning to unpack my bags. But then I met Amanda and I fell in love, and she lives here, and so there you go. And I would love to be the parts of my father that are amazing -- the excellent dad and the great husband and the new dad to the new little nugget that we're trying to --

Ryan: Hold -- what?

Jake: Adopt.

Ryan: That's great.

Jake: Well, fingers crossed.

Ryan: You know what, Joe Jr.? I don't think you have to worry. I think everything is gonna be just fine.

Greenlee: What do you mean, you're out?

Kendall: All right, hang on a second. I told you I love the idea -- I think it's great -- but, Greenlee, I am not ready to throw myself back into work yet.

Greenlee: But we need to move on this right away.

Kendall: Yes. Look, I know how important Fusion is. But I've just got Zach back, and we've been so focused on this whole crazy thing with David, we have had no time to be together as a family.

Greenlee: No one's stopping you.

Kendall: If we're gonna do this, though, I want to do it the right way. That means being at the office 24/7, all Fusion all the time.

Greenlee: To get it off the ground, yeah.

Kendall: All right. I can't do that right now. I can't do that yet. I want to be with my husband.

Greenlee: This is the first great idea I've had in a really long time. I want to run with it.

Kendall: Ok. Then you should. But, first, why don't you take a break? Go someplace romantic with Ryan and just forget about everything else.

Greenlee: I don't want to forget about everything else.

Kendall: Ok, hold on a second. What is going on with you? I know you, Greenlee, and something has got you spooked. What are you afraid of?

Scott: So how's it going staying over at Liza's?

Colby: Oh, it's fine. The whole blog world knows that we're not perfect, but I don't know. After that whole -- thanks -- sex tape thing with J.R., no way.

Scott: Yeah. The gatehouse is coming along. There's an extra bedroom -- yours if you want it.

Colby: Thanks. That's nice of you, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you and Madison. How's that going, anyways?

Scott: It's better, thank you. After she lost the baby, I didn't think we were gonna get back to where we were. But we'll see. We're in a new place now. So are you sure you're cool with staying at Liza's?

Colby: Oh, no matter how many times she messes up, she's here -- which is a lot more than I can say for my dad.

Scott: Uncle Adam -- wow. I haven't heard a thing from him.

Colby: I actually called him after one of J.R.'s meltdowns. But where is he? It's like he doesn't care.

Brot: I lied, Natalia, and I let your dad take the blame the whole time when I was the reason he was able to switch the babies in the first place. And I have to tell Angie that.

Natalia: Yeah, I mean, telling Angie is one thing. But your job?

Brot: I don't give a damn about my job. I'll resign. I don't care. I just want to make this right, whatever it takes.

Natalia: Hey, my dad and Angie -- they have family, friends.

Brot: It's not gonna be enough. I made one bad call, and look what it cost them. I can't live with this anymore.

Natalia: Please, you got to stop being so --

Brot: You don't understand. This is not the first time it's happened.

Natalia: What do you mean?

Brot: Iraq.

Krystal: Ohh.

[Knock on door]

Krystal: Hey. What are you doing here?

Liza: I was just driving by. I saw the lights were on. I thought maybe you were open.

Krystal: Oh. We're not, but -- no, no. Come on in, please.

Krystal: So can I get you anything?

Liza: White wine -- that'd be great.

Krystal: All right.

Liza: Actually, make it a scotch.

Krystal: Ok.

Liza: Casual look -- I like it.

Krystal: Ah. Yeah, this is my insomnia look.

Liza: Did you hear about David?

Krystal: Yeah. I heard he was arrested.

Liza: Guess who his one phone call was.

Krystal: Please. I hope you hung up on him?

Liza: Wants me to represent him again. And that's really what I thought I wanted. It's the big case, right? It's gavel-to-gavel coverage. It's me smack-dab in the center of it. And no matter what side I'm on, whether I'm standing up for the rich and powerful or I'm trying to put them away, I'm just -- I'm not happy. I really envy you, Krystal.

Krystal: Yeah. Because my life's a bowl of cherries? Please. Come on. Here I am at my bar, in my pajamas, doing inventory at 2:00 in the morning, when really what I'm trying to do is not feel what I've been feeling for so long.

Liza: And what's that?

Krystal: Lost.

Jake: Oh! Ohh! Where'd you go?

Ryan: Nowhere.

Jake: Because I'm spilling my guts over here, and I've got nothing from you.

Ryan: I just heard you talking about your dad, and I started thinking about mine, and I haven't done that in a while. He certainly wasn't in the great dad category like yours was. He was more in the "twisted bastard who terrorizes his family" category, and I -- I'm just thinking that I obviously still have a lot of guilt with the fact that my mom, my sister, and my brother weren't able to get away from him, but I was.

Jake: Makes -- makes sense.

Ryan: I just don't want any part of the past to hold me back anymore. I want to be completely present right here, right now, with Greenlee, with Spike, and with Emma.

Jake: Right. Amen to that.

Ryan: So what I'm hearing here is I'm hearing that you and me, we got to just put the past behind us and move on.

Jake: All right. Here's to dumping the baggage.

Kendall: What is it? What has got you so freaked out?

Greenlee: When I got home tonight, the apartment was empty and quiet, scary quiet. All of a sudden, I felt so alone. I'd just come up with this brilliant idea, and I was shaking like a leaf. I was actually physically shaking.

Kendall: Since when do you physically shake?

Greenlee: Since I was a little girl. I'd wake up in the middle of the night with some nightmare and I'd race to my parents' bedroom, and I would open the door, and in that moment when I so badly needed them to be there, they weren't. They were at a party or on some European vacation.

Kendall: That must've been hard.

Greenlee: It was awful, and I wanted Roger and my mother to know it. So I started acted out, and eventually they shipped me off to boarding school.

Kendall: I thought that you liked Brookings Academy.

Greenlee: It was a bunch of rich girls whose parents needed a place to dump them. But with some princess in the next bunk over, at least I didn't feel so alone.

Kendall: Yeah, but you're not alone now. You have Ryan.

Greenlee: I do. I do. I have him tonight, but tomorrow he could be gone.

Kendall: Listen. You are not going to lose Ryan.

Greenlee: You don't know that. I mean, when that gun went off in David's lab and I saw that blood on Ryan --

Kendall: Greenlee, that wasn't real. None of it was real.

Greenlee: Yeah, but I had to act like it was, like the man I love most in this world was dying right in front of me. And that's when I realized that it could happen, that at any moment, some crazy freak could take him away from me.

Kendall: That's not gonna happen.

Greenlee: Jonathan shot him, so did Hannah Nichols.

Kendall: Jonathan was mentally ill, and Hannah was aiming for me. Ryan just happened to be there.

Greenlee: Exactly. He'll always be there for the people that he cares about, always. No matter what, he'll protect them. He'll do whatever it takes, and I'm afraid I'm gonna lose him.

Kendall: No, Greenlee, you have to stop thinking like that.

Greenlee: I can't help it. It's the only thing I know. Jackson left before I was born. Leo swore he'd never leave me, and he did. Ryan's left me more than once. I almost lost you. And if I lose all of you again, I feel like I'm gonna die.

Kendall: Listen to me. Stop. You are not going to lose me. All right? I promise.

Liza: I spent my whole life plotting and scheming to get what I want. And, sure, it's blown up in my face a million times, but I've always been able to pick myself back up and somehow start again. And -- I just can't do it now, and it's because I've lost the most precious thing in my life, and that's my daughter.

Krystal: Here. You know, Babe and I -- we had this motto: "We deserve the best, and together we can always get it." We didn't know how we were gonna get it, but somehow we would. God, back then, I wasn't afraid of anything. I mean, anyone, anything. I mean, men would come and go in my life. I never got attached. I knew better. Huh. Maybe breaking that rule was my big mistake.

Liza: Adam and Tad.

Krystal: Hmm. [Chuckles] We do have fabulous taste in men, right?

Liza: Yes. When I was younger, I thought I was invincible. And then -- whew. Coming out the other side of those two relationships has just changed me.

Krystal: Yeah. Me, too.

Liza: Mind you, I still make mistakes, but I just feel it more now. And I regret it more, which kind of gives me hope. Because that's proof that I'm actually -- that I've learned something.

Krystal: If you ask me, you've learned a lot.

Scott: My dad --

Colby: Mm-hmm?

Scott: He was the heart of this family. Right? Your dad? He was the muscle. Huh? And although he fought dirty most of the time, he protected us. But, Colby, it's our turn now. The new generation of Chandlers, all right? Listen, we have to. We got to protect ourselves. Ok? I care. Now, look, I know I'm not your dad. I'm not Dad either, all right? But I'm a Chandler -- we both are. Colby, that means something. So no matter what happens, ok -- if we lose the company, we lose this house -- we're not gonna lose each other. All right?

Colby: All right. Thanks.

Brot: Something happened in Iraq before I was burned, and I've never told anyone this.

Natalia: You can trust me.

Brot: Whew. Well, while we were over there, I had a buddy of mine named Tommy McBride. We called him "Mac," and one day he came to me asking me to switch shifts with him. And I wanted to say no, because it was my birthday and all I wanted to do was just kick back and relax. But when I saw him, he was just -- he was so tired and exhausted and he couldn't even stand up, so I took his shift. The next day, he took mine -- and he never came back. He had a wife and two kids. And ever since that day, I just ask myself the question, why did it have to be him and not me? Oh, man. Oh.

Natalia: Hey, it's not your fault.

Brot: I broke protocol. I should've just stuck to what I was supposed to do and said no like I should have. I mean, why did I get to walk away?

Natalia: "Walk away"? Honey, you were in the hospital for months recovering from an explosion that almost killed you. Do not make it seem like you didn't pay a price, too.

Brot: I didn't have two kids at home waiting for me.

Natalia: You know what? If I know you, which I'm pretty sure I do, I bet you still keep in touch with his family.

Brot: Yeah, I do. Look at this. His wife sends me a picture of the kids every year.

Natalia: Aw.

Brot: Paige is 7, Randall is -- he just turned 5. For his birthday, I actually sent him the new "Cars 2" video game.

Natalia: Oh, he must love you. Ha ha ha! Oh, they're sweet.

Brot: They say I'm family. I've never felt I was part of a family in a long time.

Natalia: You are family -- to my dad, Angie, Frankie, Randi, especially to me -- to the kids that we'll have someday. Hey, maybe we'll name one of them "Mac."

Brot: "Mac." "Mac Monroe." "Little Mac." Yeah, I like the sound of that.

Natalia: Me, too.

Brot: But how can I think about our kids when Jesse and Angie are about to lose another child?

Natalia: My dad did have to grieve for Ellie in secret, but I couldn't imagine how hard that must've been, how grateful he must've been to have you by his side to lean on. That's my dad, and he wasn't alone -- because of you. I want to show you something. I want you to see what I see -- the most beautiful man in the world.

Brot: So none of this is gonna make you stop loving me?

Natalia: Oh, baby, I could never stop loving you.

Liza: And I don't know how you ever got through losing Babe.

Krystal: Thank you. People said, "Just give it time," and I have. I have. I've given it time, and I've learned to deal with the pain, but it never goes away. It never does -- it never will. But talking about it like this, it's something I haven't done in a long time, and it does help. It does. Thank you for listening.

Liza: Anytime.

Krystal: So, um, so you say you're in the market for a few friends, huh?

Liza: If I could have a couple of those, I'd be through the moon.

Krystal: Hey. You got a friend.

Greenlee: Remember when we first started working together?

Kendall: Oh, God. I hated you.

Greenlee: I hated you. Who'd have thought that we'd be sitting here having hot chocolate at 4:00 in the morning?

Kendall: Mocha hot chocolate.

Greenlee: Thanks.

Kendall: Sure. Yeah, if you want a refill, any time.

Greenlee: No, thanks for being such a good friend, my best friend -- closest thing I've ever had to an older sister.

Kendall: Excuse me? Wait, no. You're older than me.

Greenlee: I am not.

Kendall: What are you talking about? Of course, you are.

Greenlee: Listen, Grandma, age is nothing to be ashamed of.

Kendall: What? Really? Are you kidding me?

[Doorbell rings]

Kendall: All right, who in the hell would be there? Really, at 4:00 in the morning? Honestly? This better be good.

Ryan: Hey. Hey, there you are.

Kendall: Where's Zach?

Ryan: He's still at the station. He's probably gonna be a while, because Jesse was questioning him when I left. So, hi. I got home, I didn't see you, and I saw your note.

Greenlee: Yeah, I should've called you.

Ryan: No, no, no. I'm just happy you're ok.

Greenlee: I'm better that you're here.

Kendall: All right. Great. Ok, kids, time to skedaddle. Time to go.

Greenlee: I love you, Kendall.

Kendall: I love you, too.

Liza: No kidding. Colby. Honey, what are you doing driving around at this hour?

Colby: I was coming home from the mansion to your house. What are you two doing?

Liza: We -- I'm just hanging out here with my friend. How's the packing going?

Colby: It's fine. It's my home, but soon it -- Ohh.

Liza: Come here. Come here.

Singer: Softly like a whisper hold me in your arms everything fades but you and me, and you know I'd cross the stars for your love

Amanda: Jake?

Jake: Yeah, hi. Go back to sleep.

Singer: There's nowhere else I'd rather be right now --

Jake: I love you.

Singer: Than where you are

Singer: Moonlight in-between us quiet lingering lost in your eyes but I am safe you know I'd cross the stars for your love and I think you would go that far but there's nowhere else I'd rather be right now than where you are singer: Ever so gently hold me in close so I can hear you whispering my name

Tad: Come on. Time to go home -- and no matter what you say, it is still your home. And no matter what happens, we'll always be your family.

Singer: There's nowhere else I'd rather be right now than where you are

Tad: Love your outfit.

Krystal: Hang on.
