MAC: YOU SAVED ME
FROM BLEEDING TO DEATH.
I OWE YOU MY LIFE.
JASON: THE ONLY THING THAT
HAS BEEN CONSISTENT IN MICHAEL'S
LIFE IS ME.
SO FOR NOW, THE MOVE HAS TO BE
THE THREE OF US.
ROBIN: HE MOVED US OUT
OF THE COTTAGE AND INTO
THE PENTHOUSE.
I WAS REALLY HAPPY UNTIL
MISS CARLY CAME HOME.
ALEXIS: YOUR TOUR OF DUTY IS
JUST ABOUT OVER.
LAURA: YOU SACRIFICED
THE FATHER-SON RELATIONSHIP THAT
YOU LONGED FOR TO GUARANTEE THAT
HE WOULD STAY ALIVE, AND THAT IS
WHAT WE NEED TO MAKE HIM
UNDERSTAND NOW.

CARLY: I GUESS I'M CONFUSED.
BOBBIE: I GUESS I'M NOT
UNDERSTANDING, EITHER.
JASON: OK, THERE'S NOTHING
WRONG WITH THE BROWNSTONE.
IT'S GOT TWO APPROACHES -- FRONT
AND BACK -- AND IT WOULDN'T BE
THAT HARD TO MAKE SECURE.
IT'S MICHAEL.
BOBBIE: JASON, YOU'RE SAYING
THAT MICHAEL IS NOT READY TO BE
SEPARATED FROM YOU EVEN A FEW
DAYS AT A TIME, BUT I'M NOT SURE
THAT SEPARATION IS SOMETHING
THAT A KID OR ANYBODY CAN BE
TRAINED FOR.
JASON: BOBBIE, IT'S TOO MUCH
ALL AT ONCE.
IT'S TOO MUCH.
HAVING A NEW PLACE, ME NOT BEING
THERE -- FORGET IT.
BOBBIE: WELL, HE'LL HAVE
CARLY, HE'LL HAVE ME, AND HE'LL
HAVE LUCAS.
JASON, OF COURSE HE'S GOING
TO MISS YOU.
BUT AT WHAT POINT DO YOU THINK
IT'S GOING TO BE ANY EASIER?
CARLY: JASON?
THIS IS -- THIS IS WHAT
YOU WANTED, YOU KNOW.
YOU WANTED MICHAEL AND I TO HAVE
A PLACE TO LIVE THAT WAS AWAY
FROM YOU AND ROBIN.
SO YOU HAVE TO ADMIT, IN A LOT
OF WAYS, THIS IS IDEAL.
UNLESS WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS
THAT THAT IS NOT WHAT YOU WANT
ANYMORE.
HELENA: MY, MY, NATASHA.
ARE YOU HAVING AN ATTACK
OF BACKBONE?
MY ADVICE IS FLUIDS AND PLENTY
OF REST UNTIL IT GOES AWAY.
IT ALWAYS DOES.
ALEXIS: AS A LITTLE GIRL,
I ALWAYS HOPED THAT I WOULD GROW
UP TO BE -- WELL, NOT LIKE YOU,
OF COURSE, BUT THE END OF YOU.
YOU WON'T BEGRUDGE A LITTLE GIRL
HER DREAM.
HELENA: AND WHAT PROMISES HAS
STEFAN BEEN WHISPERING
IN YOUR EAR THIS TIME?
ALEXIS: THAT WAS BEFORE
I EVER HEARD MY MOTHER'S NAME,
LET ALONE HER VOICE.
THE VOICE YOU STOPPED
IN THE INTEREST OF -- WOULD IT
BE FAIR TO SAY THE PURITY
OF THE CASSADINE BLOOD?
HELENA: THAT MIGHT BE ONE WAY
TO PUT IT.
ALEXIS: WELL, YOU WON THAT
BATTLE.
REALLY, HOW MUCH OF A CHALLENGE
COULD MY MOTHER HAVE BEEN?
BUT DO YOU EVER STOP TO ASK
YOURSELF IF YOU WON THE WAR?
STEFAN: YOU'VE COME HOME.
I'M GLAD.
NIKOLAS: WERE YOU AFRAID
YOUR EXPERIMENT HAD BEEN
FOR NOTHING?
STEFAN: "EXPERIMENT"?
NIKOLAS: YEAH.
I DON'T MEAN TO BE GLIB,
BUT I DO FEEL A LITTLE LIKE
A LAB RAT RAISED IN THE DARK,
BEING FED NOTHING BUT AIR.
I SEE YOU SENT FOR
REINFORCEMENTS.
LAURA: STEFAN WAS FRANTIC,
NIKOLAS.
WE BOTH WERE.
NIKOLAS: I'M SORRY
IF I ALARMED YOU.
BUT WHERE WOULD I GO, HUH?
I DON'T KNOW MUCH OF ANYTHING
USEFUL.
DON'T KNOW MUCH BUT HOW TO BE
THE SON OF STAVROS CASSADINE.
LAURA: OH, NIKOLAS.
I'M SO SORRY.
I'M THE ONE THAT YOU SHOULD
REALLY BE ANGRY WITH.
WE HAD PLANNED TO TELL
YOU TOGETHER BECAUSE WE REALLY
BELIEVED THAT WE COULD HELP
YOU TO UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED.
BUT THEN MY MOTHER TOOK A FALL
BACK AT HOME, AND I HAD TO LEAVE
TOWN SUDDENLY.
SO --
NIKOLAS: SHE ALL RIGHT?
LAURA: YES.
ARE YOU?
NIKOLAS: WELL, I HAVE A LOT
OF DECISIONS TO MAKE,
OBVIOUSLY, AND QUESTIONS TO ASK,
WHICH WILL MAKE IT EASIER SINCE
YOU'RE HERE.
LAURA: PLEASE, ASK ME
ANYTHING.
NIKOLAS: YOU MIND?
STEFAN: NO.
NIKOLAS: YOU SAY THAT
YOU WERE GOING TO TELL ME
TOGETHER.
BUT I THINK THAT WAS SOMETHING
THAT YOU WANTED TO DO OUT
OF KINDNESS, OUT OF LOYALTY,
BECAUSE THIS ISN'T YOUR DOING,
IS IT?
HE LIED TO YOU, TOO, DIDN'T HE?
NIKOLAS: WHEN I THOUGHT BACK,
I REALIZED SOMETHING -- THE WAY
YOU SPOKE OF MY FATHER BEFORE
YOU WENT AWAY AND AFTER YOU CAME
BACK WASN'T THE SAME.
YOU SPOKE OF HIM THE WAY
EVERYONE DID -- THE WAY
HIS SERVANTS DID, HIS PILOT,
ALEXIS.
IT WAS AS IF YOU WERE --
YOU WERE TRYING TO BE CAREFUL,
LIKE YOU WERE TRYING NOT
TO OFFEND ME.
WHEN YOU CAME BACK,
SOMETHING CHANGED.
I WOULD ASK YOU ABOUT MY FATHER,
AND IT SEEMED AS IF YOU WERE
DESCRIBING SOMEONE ELSE.
IT'S BECAUSE YOU WERE.
YOU LEARNED SOMETHING THAT
YOU DIDN'T KNOW YEARS AGO.
WHEN YOU LEFT ME WITH HIM,
YOU THOUGHT THAT I WAS THE SON
OF YOUR HUSBAND.
LAURA: FIRST OF ALL,
STAVROS WAS NOT MY HUSBAND.
NIKOLAS: SEMANTICS.
LAURA: NO.
NO, NO.
I REALIZE THAT THE CASSADINES
MAY NOT RECOGNIZE A MARRIAGE
OUTSIDE OF THE RUSSIAN CHURCH,
BUT I WAS MARRIED AND MY HUSBAND
WAS STILL ALIVE.
NIKOLAS, IT'S IMPORTANT TO ME
THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THAT I NEVER
CARED ABOUT SOME ARCHAIC IDEAS
ABOUT WHAT MAKES A CHILD
LEGITIMATE.
TO ME, YOU WERE MINE, AND WHAT
MATTERED TO ME WAS YOUR LIFE,
NOT YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
STEFAN: THAT MAY NOT QUITE
ANSWER YOUR QUESTION.
YOU'RE RIGHT --
THE LIE WAS MINE.
LAURA: WELL, NO.
THAT'S NOT ENTIRELY TRUE,
EITHER.
YES, WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT I WAS
PREGNANT, I KNEW THAT THERE WAS
A STRONG POSSIBILITY THAT STEFAN
WAS THE FATHER.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
I PRAYED THAT HE WAS.
AND IN MY HEART, I BELIEVED THAT
HE WAS.
BUT I COULDN'T SAY IT THEN
OR NOW, TO YOU OR TO ANYONE.
DO YOU KNOW WHY?
NIKOLAS: BECAUSE OF LUKE.
LAURA: PARTLY.
NIKOLAS: AND BECAUSE
YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE
PROTECTING ME.
LAURA: YES.
THAT'S TRUE.
BUT DO YOU KNOW FROM WHAT?
NIKOLAS: THE TRUTH.
LAURA: NO. NO.
IT -- IT REALLY WAS NEVER LIKE
THAT.
THERE WAS NEVER A MOMENT WHEN
THE TWO OF US LOOKED AT EACH
OTHER AND SAID, "NO ONE MUST
EVER KNOW."
BACK THEN,
ON THE ISLAND IN THOSE DAYS,
THERE WAS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND
THAT IF THE FAMILY EVER FOUND
OUT THAT WE WERE LOVERS THAT
I WOULD BE KILLED.
AND IF YOU WERE LUCKY ENOUGH
TO BE BORN, YOU WOULD BE KILLED,
TOO.
NIKOLAS: SO, IF THE RISKS
WERE SO HIGH, THEN WHY DID
YOU DO IT?
STEFAN: YOUR MOTHER WAS
STARVED FOR KINDNESS,
I FOR AFFECTION.
WE --
LAURA: NO.
WE WERE IN LOVE.
NIKOLAS, WE WERE IN LOVE.
AND I AM SO GLAD TO FINALLY BE
ABLE TO SAY THAT TO
YOU BECAUSE WITHOUT STEFAN,
I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE GONE MAD.
I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE THROWN
MYSELF INTO THE SEA.
GOD KNOWS WHAT I WOULD HAVE
DONE.
LAURA: WHEN I FOUND OUT THAT
I WAS PREGNANT, STEFAN WAS
THE FIRST PERSON I TOLD.
AND I DIDN'T KNOW HOW HE WAS
GOING TO REACT.
I DIDN'T KNOW IF HE WOULD
SUGGEST THAT WE RUN AWAY
OR IF HE WOULD INSIST ON DEFYING
STAVROS AND HELENA AND TELLING
THEM EVERYTHING, ALTHOUGH THAT
WOULD HAVE RESULTED IN THE END
OF ALL OF OUR LIVES FOR SURE.
YOU SEE, NONE OF THESE THINGS
WERE EVER SPOKEN ABOUT AT THAT
TIME, STRANGE AS THAT MAY SEEM.
BUT WHEN I TOLD STEFAN THAT
I WAS PREGNANT, I SAW ALL OF IT
FLASH ACROSS HIS FACE, AND ALL
HE SAID TO ME WAS, "YOU
AND YOUR CHILD WILL HAVE
MY EVERY LOYALTY."
THOSE WERE HIS EXACT WORDS.
NIKOLAS, DO YOU KNOW WHAT
HE DID?
LISTEN TO ME.
DO YOU REALIZE WHAT THAT MEANT?
YOUR FATHER LOVED YOU AND ME
ENOUGH TO LET GO OF ANY CLAIM
TO US, OF ANY HOPE OF EVER
HAVING US AS HIS OWN FAMILY
TO ENSURE OUR SAFETY.
ALEXIS: DO YOU REMEMBER WHAT
STAVROS USED TO CALL ME WHEN
WE WERE CHILDREN?
HELENA: IT WAS "LITTLE"
SOMETHING.
"LITTLE TOAD."
ALEXIS: "LITTLE UGLINESS."
HELENA: OH.
AH, THAT'S IT.
WHY?
OH, WERE YOU TRAUMATIZED
BY THAT?
YOU POOR DARLING.
ALEXIS: DO YOU WANT TO KNOW
WHAT HE CALLED YOU BEHIND
YOUR BACK?
"MOTHER UGLINESS."
HELENA: WHAT A PETTY,
UNIMAGINATIVE LITTLE LIE.
ALEXIS: YOU SEE?
YOU ALWAYS SAID THAT KNOWLEDGE
GETS YOU POWER.
AND BY THE WAY, I AGREE.
THERE IS SO MUCH YOU DON'T EVEN
KNOW ABOUT YOUR BELOVED FAMILY.
LET'S SEE.
HOW MANY YEARS HAVE YOU SPENT
GROVELING AT NIKOLAS' FEET ONLY
TO HAVE HIM IGNORE YOU AND THROW
YOU OUT OF THE HOUSE?
HELENA: ALL RIGHT, ALEXIS.
YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY DYING TO HAVE
ME ASK IT --
WHAT IS IT THAT YOU THINK
YOU KNOW, EXACTLY?
ALEXIS: THAT MY MOTHER WILL
GET HER REVENGE ON YOU YET.
HELENA: WELL, WELL.
CARLY: LOOK, I HAVE TO ADMIT
THAT WHEN BOBBIE FIRST BROUGHT
THIS UP, MY REACTION WAS
THE SAME AS YOURS.
YOU KNOW?
BUT, JASON, YOU KNOW HOW I AM.
I'M --
I'M WAY TOO DEPENDENT ON YOU,
AND I'M NOT REALLY CRAZY ABOUT
THE IDEA OF HAVING TO BE
WITHOUT YOU.
STILL, THAT SAID, IF THIS IS
GOING TO HAPPEN, I DON'T SEE
A BETTER WAY.
I'LL HAVE HELP.
LUCAS AND BOBBIE WILL BE THERE
TO BE AROUND MICHAEL, AND HE'LL
HAVE THOSE PEOPLE THAT HE KNOWS.
JASON: CARLY, HE'S NOT GOING
TO UNDERSTAND WHERE I AM.
CARLY: HE'S NOT, NO.
BUT, HEY, JASON, THAT'S GOING
TO HAPPEN, YOU KNOW,
WHETHER WE'RE AT THE BROWNSTONE,
THE PORT CHARLES HOTEL A WEEK
FROM TODAY, A YEAR FROM TODAY.
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHEN.
IT'S -- LOOK, IF MICHAEL COULD
BE WITH BOTH OF HIS PARENTS,
THAT'D BE GREAT.
YOU KNOW?
THAT WOULD BE --
THAT WOULD BE FINE WITH ME.
BUT IF HE CAN'T,
THEN I THINK WE SHOULD PUT
OURSELVES OUT OF OUR MISERY,
STOP POSTPONING THE INEVITABLE
BECAUSE IT'S JUST REALLY MAKING
IT HARDER FOR ALL OF US.
JASON: IS THAT WHAT YOU THINK
I'M DOING?
BOBBIE: I THINK YOU'RE TRYING
TO BE A GOOD PARENT.
AND I THINK YOU'RE WANTING
WHAT'S BEST FOR MICHAEL.
AND I THINK YOU'RE FEELING
GUILTY BECAUSE LIFE CAN'T BE
PERFECT FOR HIM.
BUT I ALSO THINK THAT CARLY'S
RIGHT.
YOU'RE ALL STUCK IN THIS LIMBO
BETWEEN THE WAY THINGS WERE
AND THE WAY YOU KNOW THINGS
SHOULD BE.
AND YOUR NERVES ARE SHOT,
AND YOUR PATIENCE IS GONE,U'RE NOT
ALREADY.
CARLY: LOOK, MICHAEL STAYED
WITH BOBBIE BEFORE.
AND YOU WERE FINE WITH IT THEN.
BOBBIE: AND IT WAS FINE
BECAUSE HE WAS FINE.
CHILDREN ARE VERY ADAPTABLE,
WHEN THEY'RE GIVEN ENOUGH LOVE
AND ATTENTION, AND HE WILL
CERTAINLY GET THAT FROM US.
JASON: I GUESS I HAVE BEEN
PUTTING IT OFF.
FOR MICHAEL, I THOUGHT.
BUT MAYBE IT WAS JUST FOR ME.
I MEAN, IF YOU BOTH THINK THIS
IS RIGHT, THEN IT PROBABLY IS.
JASON: BUT DO IT TODAY, OK?
YOU TAKE HIM TONIGHT.
AND DON'T LET THIS THING DRAG
OUT.
CARLY: OK.
...THAN ALKA-SELTZER PLUS

MY NASAL CONGESTION

MINOR ARTHRITIS PAIN,
INCREASING RANGE OF
MOTION AND FLEXIBILITY.

THERE ONCE WAS A BOY
WHO LOVED HIS CAMPBELL'S SOUP
AS MUCH AS HE
LOVED MAKING SNOWMEN.
BUT ALAS!
THAT HOT DELICIOUS CAMPBELL'S
MADE HIM SO WARM
THE SNOW MELTED IN HIS HANDS
AND WITH IT, ANY HOPE
OF A SNOWMAN.
THEN HE HEARD A VOICE IN
THE WIND AND EVERYTHING CHANGED.
THE VERY NEXT DAY,
HE MADE THE BEST SNOWMAN EVER!
ALL BECAUSE THE VOICE SAID,
"MAKE THE SNOWMAN BEFORE
YOU HAVE THE SOUP."

NIKOLAS: AFTER STAVROS DIED,
NOTHING CHANGED.
LAURA: THERE WAS STILL
HELENA, AND SHE WAS DEVOTED
TO STAVROS' MEMORY.
STEFAN: AND STILL IS.
NOW, YOU MAY BELIEVE THAT I KEPT
THE SECRET TO PROCURE
MY BROTHER'S POWER FOR
YOU OR FOR MYSELF.
I WON'T DENY THAT IN TIME I CAME
TO WANT YOU TO HAVE IT.
BUT YOU MUST BELIEVE ME --
KEEPING YOU SAFE FROM HARM WAS
ALWAYS MY FIRST THOUGHT.
NIKOLAS: ALL RIGHT.
WHEN DID YOU KNOW?
HMM?
FOR CERTAIN, I MEAN.
COME ON, I KNOW YOU.
YOU WOULD HAVE WANTED PROOF,
ONE WAY OR THE OTHER --
A BLOOD TYPE MATCH, A PATERNITY
TEST.
STEFAN: I WAS GIVEN
THE RESULTS THE DAY MY BROTHER
DIED.
NIKOLAS: THE DAY YOU MADE ME
KEEP IN REMEMBRANCE OF HIM.
STEFAN: YES.
NIKOLAS: YOU DESPISED HIM.
STEFAN: HE WAS MY BROTHER.
NIKOLAS: HE HAD EVERYTHING!
EVEN YOUR ONLY CHILD.
STEFAN: I LOVED YOU
BECAUSE YOU WERE NIKOLAS,
NOT BECAUSE YOU WERE MINE.
NIKOLAS: WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE
DONE IF I WAS NEVER BORN?
STEFAN: I HAVE NO IDEA.
NIKOLAS: OH, I THINK YOU DO.
YOU WOULD HAVE LED THE SORT
OF LIFE THAT ALEXIS HAS.
YEAH.
YEAH, YOU WOULD HAVE PURSUED
YOUR OWN STUDIES, TURNED
YOUR BACK ON YOUR FAMILY,
MADE YOUR OWN WAY, YOUR OWN
NAME.
STEFAN: I WOULD HAVE BEEN
THE POORER FOR IT.
NIKOLAS: ALL THESE YEARS
PRETENDING THAT I DIDN'T HAVE
A FATHER AND YOU DIDN'T HAVE
A SON -- WAS THAT FULFILLING
TO YOU?
DID YOU LIKE THAT?
STEFAN: NOTHING ELSE I COULD
HAVE DONE COULD EVER MEAN
AS MUCH!
ALL THAT IS GOOD IN ME
COMES FROM YOU.
NIKOLAS: HOW -- HOW CAN
THAT BE?
YOU'RE THE PARENT,
NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
ALL THAT IS GOOD IN ME
COMES FROM YOU.
STEFAN: FORGIVE ME.
NIKOLAS: FORGIVE
YOU FOR WHAT?
HUH?
FOR MY LIFE?
I HATED THAT YOU HID THE TRUTH
FROM ME.
BUT I UNDERSTAND YOUR REASONS.
I MEAN, I'M NOT EVEN -- I'M NOT
EVEN SAYING THAT IT WAS WRONG.
I JUST WISH THAT I WOULD HAVE
KNOWN.
I WISH THAT I WOULD HAVE KNOWN
THAT THE MAN I LOVED MORE THAN
ANYTHING IN THE WHOLE WORLD
AND THE MAN THAT I MISSED
THE MOST IN THE WHOLE WORLD WAS
THE SAME MAN.
YOU UNDERSTAND ME?
YOU'RE MY FATHER.
AND YOU WERE ALWAYS THERE,
AND YOU NEVER SAID ANYTHING.
WHY DID YOU DO THAT?
STEFAN: OH.
NIKOLAS: WHY DID YOU DO THAT?
STEFAN: OH.
NIKOLAS: WHY DID YOU DO THAT?
STEFAN: OH.
MY SON.
MY SON.
CARLY: HEY, HOW LOW DO
YOU TURN THE HEATER DOWN
AT NIGHT?
BOBBIE: OH, I DON'T KNOW.
SOMEWHERE BELOW 65.
CARLY: I HOPE YOU HAVE
BLANKETS.
BOBBIE: YEAH, I HAVE
BLANKETS.
CARLY: SOFT ONES?
BOBBIE: NO.
LUCAS SLEEPS ON SANDPAPER
BECAUSE I THINK IT'S GOOD
FOR HIS CHARACTER.
CARLY: DON'T MAKE FUN OF ME,
ALL RIGHT?
I'M A MOM NOW.
I HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THESE
THINGS.
WHY AM I GETTING THE FEELING
THAT THIS IS, LIKE, A HUGE
MISTAKE?
BOBBIE: HEY, I HAVEN'T ASKED
YOU FOR RENT YET, DID I?
CARLY: OH, RIGHT.
YOU THINK I'D PAY MONEY TO LIVE
WITH YOU?
BOBBIE: NO.
BUT I THINK YOU'D TELL JASON
YOU NEEDED THE MONEY FOR RENT
AND KEEP IT.
CARLY: OH. OK.
TELL ME, EXACTLY AT WHAT POINT
THIS AFTERNOON DID I LOSE
MY MIND?
HOW COULD I THINK LIVING
WITH YOU WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA?
BOBBIE: WELL, MAYBE YOU JUST
THOUGHT JASON'S HEARTSTRINGS
NEEDED A GOOD YANK.
DON'T THINK I DON'T KNOW WHAT
YOU'RE UP TO, DAUGHTER OF MINE.
CARLY: OH, RIGHT.
I KNOW.
I PULLED A FAST ONE THIS TIME.
I MEAN, HEY, MOVING OUT
OF A LUXURY PENTHOUSE
WITH A HOUSEKEEPER, A NANNY,
A DRIVER, SO I COULD COME
AND LIVE IN YOUR ATTIC.
CARLY: HEY, JOHNNY GOT
THE OTHER BAGS.
I THINK WE CAN HANDLE THESE.
BOBBIE: YEAH.
JASON: MICHAEL, THIS IS THAT
NEW THING I WAS TELLING
YOU ABOUT.
MICHAEL: BOP.
JASON: YEAH.
MICHAEL: BOP.
JASON: HOW YOU'LL BE SOME
OF THE TIME WITH CARLY,
THEN YOU'LL BE SOME OF THE TIME
HERE.
MICHAEL: DA-DA.
JASON: YEAH.
I DON'T LIKE IT VERY MUCH,
EITHER, OR UNDERSTAND IT.
MICHAEL: BOP.
JASON: I MEAN, I DO
BUT I DON'T.
[MICHAEL CHATTERS]
JASON: YEAH.
OK, YOU GO WITH BOBBIE
AND CARLY.
CARLY: COME ON, BABY.
JASON: OK?
AND I'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.
CARLY: OH, YES.
AH.
HEY.
THIS IS GOING TO BE FINE.
JASON: I KNOW.
CARLY: I'M GOING TO CALL
YOU BEFORE I PUT HIM TO BED
TONIGHT, OK?
JASON: DON'T -- DON'T DO
THAT, OK?
CARLY: WHY?
MICHAEL: DA-DA
JASON: YEAH, MICHAEL.
CARLY: OK, BABY.
BOBBIE: JASON, STOP
BY ANYTIME.
I MEAN IT.
CARLY: LET'S GO.
YEAH.
JASON: WAIT A MINUTE.
WAIT, WAIT, WAIT.
THIS IS HIS AFRICA BOOK.
AND THE PLACE IS MARKED.
HERE.
CARLY: YOU KNOW WHAT?
THIS IS --
THIS IS SO SILLY.
I AM GOING TO SEE YOU ALL
THE TIME.
WE ARE GOING TO SEE YOU ALL
THE TIME.
I'M NOT EVEN GOING TO SAY
GOOD-BYE, OK?
BECAUSE THIS IS NOT GOOD-BYE,
JASON.
HEY.
YOU'RE HIS FATHER.
THAT IS FOREVER.
YOU HEAR?
JASON: YEAH.
GO.
CARLY: OK.
ROBIN: HI.
JASON: HOW'S MAC?
ROBIN: HE'S OK.
WHERE'S THE BABY MONITOR?
JASON: CARLY TOOK IT.
ROBIN: WHERE?
JASON: MICHAEL'S GONE.
CARLY: I MEAN, SOMETIMES
I FORGET THAT IT'S IN THERE.
AND THEN, OF COURSE, ROBIN HAS
THE VOLUME UP WAY, WAY HIGH
AND MICHAEL LETS OUT A SCREAM,
AND I JUMP OUT OF MY CHAIR,
LIKE, THREE FEET.
HE'S BEING KIND OF QUIET UP
THERE, DON'T YOU THINK?
BOBBIE: YEAH.
WELL, YOU KNOW, WE JUST FED HIM
AND WE BATHED HIM AND WE TRIED
ABOUT EIGHT BLANKETS ON HIM,
SO MAYBE HE'S JUST LYING LOW.
CARLY: YEAH.
I DON'T KNOW.
MAYBE YOU SHOULD GO UP THERE
AND JUST SAY, "TESTING,
ONE, TWO, THREE," OR SOMETHING.
BOBBIE: OH, HONEY, I'VE BEEN
UP AND DOWN THOSE STAIRS ABOUT
A DOZEN TIMES.
MAYBE YOU SHOULD GO.
CARLY: I'M SURE HE'S FINE.
YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK?
I THINK THAT YOU SHOULD GO
AND GET LUCAS.
BOBBIE: I CAN'T DO THAT.
CARLY: WHY?
BOBBIE: WELL, BECAUSE I TOLD
HIM HE COULD SPEND THE NIGHT
WITH EARL.
IT'S NOT FAIR TO GIVE PERMISSION
AND THEN TAKE IT BACK.
CARLY: HE ACTUALLY HAS
A FRIEND NAMED EARL?
THE THINGS PEOPLE DO
TO THEIR KIDS.
HOW -- HOW FAST, DO YOU WANT
TO BET, WHEN HE TURNS 18 HE
CHANGES IT TO JUSTIN?
BOBBIE: OH.
WELL, YOU KNOW, "LUCAS" ISN'T
EXACTLY AN EVERYDAY NAME,
YOU KNOW.
CARLY: YEAH.
EITHER IS "BOBBIE," UNLESS
YOU'RE A CHARACTER FROM
A COUNTRY-WESTERN VIDEO.
BOBBIE: HMM.
YEAH, WELL, NEITHER IS "CARLY"
UNLESS YOU'RE ON A MUSIC VIDEO
AND YOU GOT A BIG FAN BLOWING
YOUR HAIR BACK OFF YOUR FACE.
CARLY: ARE WE WEIRD OR WHAT?
BOBBIE: ARE WE HUNGRY
OR WHAT?
YOU WANT SOME DINNER?
CARLY: NO.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT ON ME.
BOBBIE: OH, TRUST ME --
I WASN'T VOLUNTEERING TO.
CARLY: NO.
YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY, I THINK
MAYBE LATER OR SOMETHING.
I KIND OF HAVE SOME BUTTERFLIES
RIGHT NOW.
BOBBIE: YOU KNOW,
HONEY, YOU REALLY DO TRY VERY
HARD WITH MICHAEL.
AND I SEE THAT EVERY TIME YOU'RE
WITH HIM.
CARLY: THANKS.
I'M GLAD SOMEBODY DOES.
BOBBIE: BUT YOU GOT TO STOP
WORRYING ABOUT IT, OK?
BECAUSE YOU'RE GREAT WITH HIM.
CARLY: OH, WHO SAYS I'M
WORRYING ABOUT THAT?
I'M WORRIED I JUST FLUSHED
MY WHOLE LIFE DOWN THE TOILET,
ACTUALLY.
BOBBIE: OH, REALLY?
HOW, I WONDER.
CARLY: HOW?
BY MOVING MY SON AWAY
FROM HIS FATHER INTO A HOUSE
WITH SOMEBODY WHO DOESN'T LIKE
ME VERY MUCH.
I MEAN, THIS IS THE FUTURE?
I DON'T THINK SO.
LOOK, I'M EXAGGERATING,
BOBBIE, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT
I MEAN?
BOBBIE: YEAH.
WELL, YOU KNOW --
IT'S NOT PERMANENT, RIGHT?
CARLY: OH, GREAT.
I JUST GOT HERE, AND YOU ALREADY
WANT TO THROW ME OUT?
BOBBIE: OH, COME ON,
GET OVER IT.
BUT I DON'T THINK IT'S
INAPPROPRIATE AT SOME POINT
TO ASK WHERE YOU GO FROM HERE.
CARLY: HMM.
WELL, DON'T GET YOURSELF ALL
WORKED UP.
I'M SURE JASON WILL GET MICHAEL
AND I A PLACE OF OUR OWN VERY
SOON.
BOBBIE: CARLY, I'M ASKING
YOU ABOUT YOUR LIFE'S GOALS.
SURELY YOU HAVE SOME.
CARLY: YEAH, IF YOU WANT ME
TO SAY NURSING SCHOOL, I REFUSE.
BOBBIE: OH, GEE.
ALL MY HOPES AND DREAMS ARE
DASHED.
CARLY: MY LIFE GOALS.
OK.
I'LL TELL YOU, BUT PROMISE NOT
TO LAUGH.
JASON MORGAN.
LOOK, THERE IS NOBODY THAT'S
BETTER FOR ME, AND THERE IS
NOBODY THAT'S BETTER FOR HIM,
YOU KNOW?
AND WHEN I AM JUST TOTALLY BEING
MYSELF, HE IS THE ONE PERSON
ON WHOSE NERVES THAT I DON'T
GET.
BOBBIE: YEAH, WELL,
THAT I DON'T DISPUTE.
BUT YOU AND JASON HAD A SHOT,
AND IT DIDN'T WORK OUT.
CARLY: WHEN?
BOBBIE: WELL, MY GUESS WOULD
BE RIGHT AROUND THE TIME MICHAEL
WAS CONCEIVED.
CARLY: WE DIDN'T.
WE DIDN'T, OK?
I MEAN, ROBIN WAS ALWAYS THERE,
MAKING HIM FEEL LIKE SHE WAS
THE LOST TREASURE OF THE INCAS
OR, YOU KNOW, THE KEY TO ALL
HAPPINESS AND JOY.
BOBBIE: OK. OK, WELL, SO WHAT
ARE YOUR -- WHAT ARE
YOUR ALTERNATE LIFE PLANS, OK?
YOU MUST HAVE A PLAN B.
CARLY: YEAH, I DO.
SURE, OF COURSE, YOU KNOW.
IT'S A LOT LIKE PLAN A,
EXCEPT IT TAKES A LITTLE BIT
LONGER.
SEE, I'M SURE THAT ROBIN WILL
DUMP JASON EVENTUALLY.
BOBBIE: I THINK I'LL MAKE
A SALAD.
I FEEL LIKE CHOPPING SOMETHING.
NIKOLAS: ANOTHER NIGHT,
SHE SAYS.
SHE JUST GOT HOME AND
SAID THAT LESLEY LU LIKES TO EAT
EARLY.
STEFAN: WELL, I'LL TELL
MRS. LANSBURY
JUST THE TWO OF US FOR DINNER,
THEN.
NIKOLAS: ALL RIGHT.
SHE ALSO SAID TO APOLOGIZE
IF SHE SEEMED TO ABANDON YOU.
SHE JUST THOUGHT THAT
YOU AND I NEEDED TO SAY A FEW
THINGS TO EACH OTHER.
STEFAN: WELL, IN A WAY,
NOTHING HAS CHANGED.
YOU'VE ALWAYS KNOWN, I HOPE,
HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOU.
NIKOLAS: I HAVE.
STEFAN: YOUR MOTHER IS RIGHT.
THERE ARE THINGS THAT NEED TO BE
ADDRESSED AT ONCE.
THE DAMAGE MUST BE CONTAINED.
NIKOLAS: "DAMAGE"?
WHAT DAMAGE?
STEFAN: WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED
ABOUT YOUR PARENTAGE MUST GO
NO FURTHER THAN THIS ROOM,
NIKOLAS.
NIKOLAS: HOW IS THAT EVEN
POSSIBLE?
STEFAN: FIRST, WE MUST STOP
WHOEVER TOLD YOU FROM TELLING
ANYONE ELSE.
NIKOLAS: WHO'S GOING
TO STOP ME?
I ALREADY TOLD LUCKY.
STEFAN: OH, THAT COULD BE
DISASTROUS.
NIKOLAS: WELL, BUT IT WASN'T.
STEFAN: WELL, PERHAPS LAURA
CAN CONTROL HIM.
NIKOLAS: UNCLE, WOULD YOU --
FATHER, HE'S NOT GOING TO SAY
ANYTHING, ALL RIGHT?
STEFAN: DID HE SWEAR IT
TO YOU?
NIKOLAS: IT'S -- IT'S OUT.
THERE'S NO STOPPING IT NOW.
STEFAN: NIKOLAS, YOU MUST
TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY.
EVERYTHING DEPENDS UPON IT --
YOUR SAFETY, YOUR INHERITANCE.
NIKOLAS: BUT IT'S NOT
MY INHERITANCE.
STEFAN: OF COURSE IT IS.
YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE
SAYING.
NIKOLAS: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING
TO ME.
I DON'T WANT TO BE THE
PRINCE, OK?
I WANT TO BE YOUR SON.
NIKOLAS: I DON'T WANT TO LIE
ABOUT WHO I AM.
AND I WANT THE WHOLE WORLD
TO KNOW IT.
I MEAN, I FEEL MORE LIKE I FOUND
OUT THAT I'M ROYALTY RATHER THAN
THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
I DON'T WANT TO KEEP THIS
A SECRET.
OK?
AND THE FIRST THING
THAT YOU HAVE TO DO
IS TEACH ME HOW TO NOT CALL
YOU "UNCLE" ANYMORE.
STEFAN: I'M SORRY.
I CAN'T LET YOU.
NIKOLAS: WELL, YOU KNOW ME.
I'M NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO KEEP
UP THE CHARADE, EVEN IF I WANTED
TO, WHICH I DON'T.
STEFAN: NIKOLAS, YOU DESERVE
THE TITLE AND THE POWER ON MERIT
ALONE.
NIKOLAS: EVEN IF I DID,
IT DOESN'T BELONG TO WHO
DESERVES IT.
IT BELONGS TO THE ELDEST SON
OF THE ELDEST SON, AND --
STEFAN: AND AS A FAMILY,
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY,
WE STAND WITHOUT ONE.
EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD
WITH EVEN A DROP OF CASSADINE
BLOOD WILL TRY TO CLAIM SOME
PART OF YOUR FORTUNE.
THERE WILL BE LAWSUITS FILED
IN A DOZEN COUNTRIES.
IT COULD TAKE DECADES TO SORT
OUT AND NOTHING OF HONOR
OR INFLUENCE LEFT TO
THE CASSADINE NAME.
NIKOLAS: IF THAT'S THE WAY
IT'S GOT TO BE.
WE CAN'T PREVENT THAT.
STEFAN: NIKOLAS, WE WILL
CEASE TO EXIST.
NIKOLAS: THE CASSADINES,
MAYBE, BUT NOT YOU AND I.
STEFAN: STILL, YOU DON'T
UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE
GIVING UP.
NIKOLAS: NO ONE UNDERSTANDS
BETTER THAN ME.
OK?
I'VE LIVED IT, AND I'VE BREATHED
IT SINCE THE DAY I WAS BORN.
YOU DON'T -- YOU DON'T THINK I'M
A LITTLE SCARED, TOO?
BUT YOU'LL SHOW ME HOW.
STEFAN: I?
NIKOLAS: YEAH.
I'VE ALWAYS BEEN THE PRINCE
IN NAME, BUT YOU'VE BEEN
THE POWER.
AND YOU'VE BEEN PLANNING TO GIVE
IT UP SINCE --
WHEN I WAS OF AGE, RIGHT?
STEFAN: YES.
NIKOLAS: WELL, THEN,
WE'LL GIVE IT UP TOGETHER.
WE'LL TAKE THE JOURNEY TOGETHER,
LIKE WE ALWAYS HAVE.
STEFAN: WILL YOU AT LEAST
GIVE ME A LITTLE BIT OF TIME
BEFORE YOU TELL ANYONE ELSE,
TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS
FOR YOUR PROTECTION?
AND DON'T SAY THAT IT'S NOT
NECESSARY.
IT IS.
NIKOLAS: ALL RIGHT.
STEFAN: AND ONE OTHER
THING --
NIKOLAS: YES.
YES, I WILL COME HOME.
AND IF YOU DON'T MIND HOLDING
DINNER, I'LL GO TO LUCKY'S RIGHT
NOW AND GRAB MY STUFF.
STEFAN: HE LIED TO ME.
NIKOLAS: SHOCKING.
ROBIN: SO BOBBIE OFFERED?
JASON: THAT'S RIGHT.
ROBIN: AND CARLY AGREED
TO IT?
JASON: AT FIRST SHE DIDN'T.
THEN SHE DID.
ROBIN: BUT YOU AGREED.
JASON: I DON'T KNOW.
ROBIN: YOU'LL SEE HIM
TOMORROW.
JASON: I KNOW.
ROBIN: TOMORROW'S NOT REALLY
ANY HELP, THOUGH, WHEN YOU'RE
FEELING BAD RIGHT NOW, HUH?
JASON: NO, I FEEL OK.
ROBIN: I KNOW YOU DON'T.
JASON: WHAT DO YOU WANT ME
TO SAY?
HE'S GOING TO THINK THIS IS
SOMETHING I DID TO HIM.
AND HE'LL BE RIGHT.
ROBIN: WHAT CAN I DO?
JASON: I JUST WANT THIS DAY
TO BE OVER.
CARLY: YOU KNOW, THIS IS
INSANE, BOBBIE.
I MEAN --
BOBBIE: NO, IT'S NOT.
IT'S JUST UNEXPECTED.
AND EMERGENCIES ARE LIKE THAT.
CARLY: OK, BUT YOU DRAGGED ME
OUT OF MY HOUSE WITH MY SON,
TELLING ME THAT YOU'RE GOING
TO BE HERE FOR ME, YOU'RE GOING
TO HELP ME, AND WHAT DO YOU DO?
YOU TAKE OFF, AND YOU LEAVE ME
HERE BY MYSELF.
WHAT WAS I THINKING?
THIS IS A DISASTER.
BOBBIE: HONEY, IT'S
A DISASTER FOR THE POOR WOMAN
THEY HAD TO PRY OUT OF HER CAR
ON THE FREEWAY, NOT FOR YOU.
CARLY: WHEN ARE YOU GOING
TO BE BACK?
BOBBIE: WELL, YOU KNOW,
WHEN I'M ABOUT TO GO
INTO SURGERY, I DON'T ASK HOW
LONG IT'S GOING TO TAKE.
HONEY, I KNOW YOU'RE WORRIED
ABOUT BEING ALONE WITH MICHAEL.
I KNOW YOU'RE AFRAID THAT YOU'RE
GOING TO MAKE A MISTAKE AND DO
SOMETHING WRONG, BUT YOU'LL BE
FINE, OK?
IT'S ONLY BECAUSE YOU'VE BEEN
SEPARATED FROM HIM SO MUCH.
AND I KNOW YOU LOOK AT JASON
AND YOU THINK THAT JASON DOES
EVERYTHING RIGHT, BUT THAT'S
BECAUSE JASON HAS HAD A LOT
OF PRACTICE.
SO NOW IT'S YOUR TURN TO GET
SOME.
OK?
AND IT'S REALLY PERFECT TIMING,
YOU KNOW, BECAUSE YOU'RE ALL
MOVED IN, AND MICHAEL IS FED
AND HE'S BATHED AND HE'S
DREAMING OF AFRICA AS WE SPEAK.
AND IF ANYTHING SHOULD GO WRONG,
YOU GOT A WHOLE LIST OF PHONE
NUMBERS RIGHT BY THE PHONE, OK?
YOU GOT MY BEEPER NUMBER.
YOU GOT LAURA'S NUMBER.
YOU GOT FELICIA'S NUMBER.
SO, DON'T LOOK FOR PROBLEMS
WHERE THERE AREN'T ANY, OK?
CARLY: YOU'D JUST BETTER GET
YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT.
BOBBIE: HEY, I JUST MOVED
YOU AND YOUR SON INTO MY HOME.
DO I GET ANY POINTS FOR THAT
AT ALL?
ROBIN: COULDN'T SLEEP?
JASON: YOU GET INTO
A ROUTINE.
ROBIN: YEAH.
THAT'S RIGHT, IT'S ABOUT TIME
FOR MICHAEL TO WAKE UP
AND DEMAND ANOTHER CHAPTER
OF HIS BOOK.
I WAS JUST PACKING UP SOME
THINGS FROM LAST SEMESTER.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT CARLY WANTS US
TO DO WITH HER LEFTOVER THINGS?
JASON: THERE'S MORE?
ROBIN: WELL, SHE'S LIKE
A TORNADO.
THERE WILL ALWAYS BE SOME TRACE
OF HER.
I'LL TELL YOU WHAT -- I'LL JUST
START A BOX, AND I'LL PUT IT OUT
OF GRACIELA'S WAY.
WHO KNOWS?
I MEAN, BOBBIE MIGHT WAKE UP
TOMORROW AND CALL THE WHOLE
THING OFF.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
ROBIN: HELLO.
CARLY: ROBIN,
CAN I TALK TO JASON?
ROBIN: SURE, CARLY.
JASON: WHAT'S THE MATTER?
CARLY: BOY, YOU GOT A LOT
OF CONFIDENCE IN ME, DON'T YOU?
[MICHAEL CRIES]
JASON: IS THAT MICHAEL?
CARLY: YEAH.
HE'S CRYING.
LOOK, I CAN'T GET HIM TO STOP,
BUT I DON'T THINK ANYTHING IS
WRONG.
I JUST REALLY NEED FOR SOMEBODY
TO TELL ME THAT OF COURSE
NOTHING'S WRONG, DUMMY, AND I'LL
BE FINE.
JASON: WHAT'S BOBBIE SAY?
CARLY: ACTUALLY,
THAT'S THE FUNNY PART.
BOBBIE'S NOT HERE.
SHE GOT CALLED IN TO G.H.
AND SHE LEFT ME ALL THESE PHONE
NUMBERS, BUT, YOU KNOW,
I'M REALLY GOING TO CALL
HER IN E.R. AND TELL HER MICHAEL
WON'T STOP CRYING.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
SHE LEFT ME FELICIA SCORPIO'S
PHONE NUMBER, YOU KNOW -- LIKE,
SHE'S GOING TO JUST LAUGH
IN MY FACE AND HANG UP ON ME.
JASON, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
SHOULD I PICK HIM UP, NOT PICK
HIM UP?
I DON'T KNOW.
JUST TELL ME.
JASON: HE HASN'T GOT A FEVER?
CARLY: NO.
JASON: NOTHING'S STUCK
IN HIS THROAT.
CARLY: NO.
HE'S FINE, I THINK.
HE JUST MISSES YOU.
I MEAN, HE KEEPS CALLING "DA-DA,
DA-DA, DA-DA" OVER AND OVER
AND OVER AGAIN.
JASON: I'LL BE RIGHT THERE.
CARLY: YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO
THAT.
JASON: IF HE'S CALLING ME,
I DO.
CARLY: OK.
THANKS.
JASON: I'M ON MY WAY.
CARLY: DADDY'S COMING,
LITTLE MAN.
YOU HAPPY?
ALEXIS: I TOLD MRS. LANSBURY
I COULD SEE MYSELF IN.
STEFAN: GOOD.
ALEXIS: WE DON'T STAND
ON CEREMONY WITH EACH OTHER,
AFTER ALL.
STEFAN: NO.
ALEXIS: IN FACT, I'VE BEEN
CLOSER TO YOU THAN I HAVE TO ANY
OTHER HUMAN BEING.
FROM A FAMILY THAT I EXPECTED
NO MORE THAN CRUMBS FROM,
YOU WERE DIFFERENT.
STEFAN: YOU'RE IN AN ODD
MOOD, ALEXIS.
WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?
ALEXIS: WHAT'S FAIR.
WHAT'S RIGHT.
WHAT'S MINE.
NIKOLAS: WENDERS, I'M BACK.
I'M AT THE DOCKS.
ALL RIGHT.
HELENA: GOOD NIGHT,
SWEET PRINCE.
>> ON THE NEXT "GENERAL HOSPITAL" --
KATHERINE: HI.
IS NIKOLAS HERE?
I COULD HEAR HIS VOICE
AS I WALKED UP.
NIKOLAS: HOW MUCH DO I KNOW?
EVERYTHING.
STEFAN: OBVIOUSLY, YOU KNOW
NIKOLAS IS MY SON.
CARLY: MICHAEL STILL NEEDS
HIS DADDY CLOSE TO HIM,
AND SO DOES HIS MOMMY.
