[KNOCK ON DOOR]
CHLOE: IF WE IGNORE IT,
WILL IT GO AWAY?
JAX: I DON'T THINK SO.
YES?
MIKE: JAX, IT'S MIKE CORBIN.
JAX: HOLD ON.
MIKE: LOOK,
ABOUT THIS GERTRUDE PROBLEM --
JAX: OH, MIKE, COME ON.
YOU'LL BE BRILLIANT, I'M SURE.
MIKE: I'VE CHANGED MY MIND.
YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO FIND
SOMEBODY ELSE.

ELIZABETH: JASON IS
MY FRIEND.
I INVITED HIM HERE.
YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO TELL HIM
TO LEAVE.
AUDREY: YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY
UNCLEAR AS TO THE GROUND RULES
HERE.
ELIZABETH: I DON'T LIVE
BY YOUR RULES ANYMORE.
AUDREY: IF YOU BELIEVE THAT,
YOU'RE VERY MUCH MTAKEN.
ELIZABETH: JASON, DON'T GO.
JASON: I'LL BE FINE.
ELIZABETH: NO, YOU WON'T.
AND NEITHER AM I BECAUSE THIS IS
INCREDIBLY EMBARRASSING
AND COMPLETELY OUT OF LINE.
JASON: I'LL BE BACK,
ALL RIGHT?
AUDREY: NOT A GOOD IDEA,
JASON.
ELIZABETH: DON'T
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT'S NOT
YOUR CALL?
SHE'LL BE GONE SOON.
DON'T STAY OUT LONG, OK?
AUDREY: OH, ELIZABETH.
I AM DEEPLY, DEEPLY
DISAPPOINTED.
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW WHAT?
THAT GOES BOTH WAYS.
YOU ARE MY GRANDMOTHER,
AND, YES, I DO LOVE YOU.
BUT I WILL NEVER FORGIVE WHAT
YOU DID.

SONNY: WE DON'T NEED
SYMPATHY, ESPECIALLY FROM EACH
OTHER.
CARLY: FINE, SONNY.
WE'RE DIRT, OK?
WE'RE LESS THAN DIRT.
BUT JASON --
JASON NEEDS US.
SONNY: WE RIPPED JASON'S
HEART OUT.
WE CANNOT JUST PUT IT BACK.
CARLY: SO WHAT DO WE DO?
WE FORGET ABOUT JASON?
"THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
GOOD-BYE.
GOOD LUCK."
THAT'S IT?
SONNY: IF I COULD FIX IT,
DON'T YOU THINK I WOULD?
CARLY: WAIT A MINUTE!
THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU.
FIVE SECONDS, OK?
FIVE SECONDS.
THE GUY S A HOLE IN HIS SIDE,
AND HE BELONGS IN A HOSPITAL.
AT THE VERY LEAST, HE SHOULD BE
IN A BED.
SONNY, HE'S LANGUISHING AWAY
ON A COUCH -- A DINGY COUCH
IN A BROKEN-DOWN STUDIO.
AND YOU CAN FIX IT.
BUT YOU'RE TELLING ME NO?
SONNY: I'VE DONE ALL I CAN.
CARLY: WELL, NOW,
THAT'S WONDERFUL.
SOME PILLS AND A LITTLE BIT
OF CASH.
THAT'S THE BEST YOU CAN DO?
SONNY: YOU CLAIM YOU CARE
FOR JASON.
GET THIS THROUGH YOUR HEAD.
THE ONLY THING WE CAN DO
FOR THE MAN RIGHT NOW
IS TO STAY OUT OF HIS FACE.

FAISON: NOW, SPENCER,
OPEN UP YOUR HEART.
TELL FELICIA HOW YOU FEEL.
RELEASE THE EMOTION YOU'VE BEEN
DAMMING UP FOR SO LONG, HMM?
FELICIA: IF YOU'RE GOING
TO PUT WORDS IN SOMEBODY'S
MOUTH, YOU DEFINITELY HAVE
THE WRONG MAN.
LUKE: SHH.
FAISON: COOL.
POISED.
GRACE UNDER PRESSURE.
USUALLY BEAUTIFUL TRAITS.
BUT IN YOUR CASE IT'S A WASTE.
LUKE: WHY DON'T WE DISCUSS
THIS OVER A COUPLE OF DRINKS
AND CIGARS?
I'LL BUY.
FAISON: NO, WE DON'T SMOKE --
LUKE: WHAT, YOU GOT SOMEWHERE
TO GO?
FAISON: AND WE DON'T DRINK
HERE!
YOU HEAR ME?
YOU BE CAREFUL.
YOU BE CAREFUL.
I'M USUALLY A VERY PATIENT MAN,
BUT MY PATIENCE HAS BEEN
EXHAUSTED.
SO, NOW YOU TELL THIS BEAUTIFUL
WOMAN THAT YOU LOVE HER.
LOOK AT HER.
NO, THIS IS NOT A REQUEST,
SPENCER.
IT'S A DEMAND, HMM?

LUKE: I HAD YOU PEGGED
FOR WHIPS AND CHAINS.
YOU'RE ALL HEARTS AND FLOWERS.
THAT'S VERY SWEET.
FAISON: THIS IS YOUR CHANCE
TO UNBURDEN YOURSELF, SPENCER.
FELICIA: WRITE DOWN WHATEVER
IT IS YOU WANT HIM TO SAY,
AND HE'LL SAY IT.
FAISON: NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.
NO WRITTEN RECITATIONS HERE.
SO DON'T GIVE ME THAT LOOK,
FELICIA.
TONE IT DOWN.
ONLY A HEARTFELT ANNOUNCEMENT
WILL GIVE ME WHAT I WANT.
LUKE: WHAT PRECISELY DO
YOU WANT?
FAISON: I WANT TO EXPERIENCE
THIS MAGNIFICENT WOMAN
AT THE MOMENT OF CONSUMMATION.
LUKE: WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?
FAISON: YEAH.
FELICIA: WHATEVER HE WANTS,
IT DOESN'T MATTER.
FAISON: OH, YES,
YES, YES, YES.
IT MATTERS A GREAT DEAL TO ME
AND HERR SPENCER, SO GO AHEAD.
LUKE: UH --
FELICIA, I LOVE YOU.
FAISON: THAT'S VERY
DISAPPOINTING.
I MEAN, THAT FAKE, STILTED --
I'M SURE YOU CAN DO MUCH BETTER,
SPENCER.
COME ON, TRY AGAIN.
LUKE: FELICIA, I LOVE YOU.
FAISON: HEY, HEY, HEY.
BEAUTIFUL.
A LITTLE -- A BIT MORE
SPONTANEOUS.
BUT I MEAN, TRY AGAIN, SPENCER.
TRY --
LUKE: THAT'S ENOUGH!
LET US GO OR SHOOT ME NOW.
I DON'T CARE WHICH.

JAX: SO WHAT ARE YOU HAVING
A PROBLEM WITH, MIKE,
THE $1,000 A DAY?
MIKE: NO, THE PART THAT'S
LEGALLY BINDING.
MARRYING GERTRUDE.
THAT LITTLE DETAIL.
JAX: YOU KNOW, FOR ALL
YOU KNOW, YOU MAY ACTUALLY LIKE
THIS WOMAN.
MIKE: NOT FROM WHAT I'VE
HEARD.
CHLOE: WELL, WE WEREN'T VERY
GENEROUS IN DESCRIBING HER.
GERTRUDE HAS LOVELY HAIR.
JAX: YEAH.
LOOK, CHEMISTRY IS
UNPREDICTABLE.
MIKE: LISTEN, I APPRECIATE
THE OFFER.
I MEAN, THE MONEY IS HARD
TO RESIST.
BUT YOU REALLY DON'T NEED ME.
A SETUP LIKE THIS, YOU'LL FIND
SOMEBODY ELSE VERY EASILY.
CHLOE: OH, BUT WOULD HE BE
HANDSOME AND CHARMING WITH THAT
DEVILISH TWINKLE IN HIS EYE?
MIKE: FLATTERY'S VERY
EFFECTIVE, BUT I PLAY THAT GAME
MYSELF.
JAX: WELL, HERE'S YOUR CHANCE
TO PLAY IT AGAIN, NOW CHARGING
HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS AN HOUR.
CHLOE: THINK OF IT
AS AN ACTING ROLE.
JAX: YEAH.
EXCEPT YOU DON'T WIN AN OSCAR,
YOU WIN CASH.
CHLOE: STACKS OF IT,
HEAPS OF IT, MOUNDS OF IT.
YOU'D BE CRAZY NOT TO AUDITION
FOR THIS PART.
MIKE: AUDITION?
WAIT A MINUTE.
DID I MISS SOMETHING HERE?
I THOUGHT YOU OFFERED ME THIS --
THIS PART.
JAX: WELL, WE'RE JUST
THE CASTING PEOPLE.
I MEAN, THE LEADING LADY HAS
THE FINAL SAY.
CHLOE: MM-HMM.
JAX: GERTRUDE DIDN'T FALL OFF
A PRODUCE TRUCK.
SHE'S A VERY SOPHISTICATED LADY.
MIKE: AND I'M SUDDENLY
A RUBE?
CHLOE: SHE'S MINGLED
WITH CAPINS OF INDUSTRY.
JAX: ARTISTS AND HEADS
OF STATE.
CHLOE: MY UNCLE WAS
A RHODES SCHOLAR.
JAX: I MEAN, YOU'RE A NICE
ENOUGH GUY, MIKE, BUT, YOU KNOW,
FOR ALL WE KNOW, GERTRUDE MIGHT
NOT GIVE YOU THE TIME OF DAY.
MIKE: YOU KNOW, I THINK
I LIKE THE FLATTERY BETTER.
CHLOE: YOU KNOW, IF I WERE UP
FOR A LEADING ROLE THAT COULD
DRAMATICALLY IMPROVE MY LIFE,
I THINK I'D PHASE INTO
CHARACTER, BLOCK MY MOVES,
RUN MY LINES.
MIKE: REHEARSE, YOU MEAN?
CHLOE: WE PAY FOR YOUR TIME.
MIKE: AT THE ESTABLISHED
RATE?
CHLOE: MM-HMM.
MIKE: WHEN WOULD THIS
REHEARSAL BE?
CHLOE: ANY TIME BETTER THAN
RIGHT NOW?

AUDREY: ELIZABETH, I DON'T
NEED YOUR FORGIVENESS
BECAUSE I'VE DONE NOTHING WRONG.
EXCEPT MAYBE TO AGREE TO HELP
YOU PAY THE RENT HERE AT THIS
STUDIO.
ELIZABETH: YES, AND
I APPRECIATE THAT.
AUDREY: YES, AND I CAN SEE
NOW HOW MUCH.
ELIZABETH: YOU DIDN'T TELL ME
YOU RESERVED THE RIGHT TO SAY
WHO COMES AND WHO GOES.
AUDREY: AND I THOUGHT
YOU WERE MATURE ENOUGH TO HANDLE
A LITTLE MORE FREEDOM,
BUT OBVIOUSLY YOU'RE NOT.
ELIZABETH: WHY, BECAUSE
I WON'T LET YOU CHOOSE
MY FRIENDS?
AUDREY: IF YOU AND JASON WERE
MERELY FRIENDS, YOU WOULDN'T BE
HIDING HIM HERE.
YOU COULD INVITE HIM
TO THE HOUSE -- OR COULD HAVE,
UNTIL NOW.
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW,
YOU DON'T HAVE A CLUE ABOUT
WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH JASO
AUDREY: PLEASE, ELIZABETH,
I AM NOT THAT NAIVE.
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW WHAT?
THIS IS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
AUDREY: LISTEN, AS LONG
AS YOU ARE LIVING UNDER
MY ROOF --
ELIZABETH: I'LL MOVE.
AUDREY: SHOULD I
CALL YOUR PARENTS, THEN?
ELIZABETH: GO AHEAD.
I DON'T CARE.
I'M GOING TO HAVE TO CONTACT
THEM ANYWAY TO GIVE THEM MY NEW
ADDRESS.
AUDREY: AND THAT WOULD BE --
OH, NO.
NO CHANCE OF THAT.
NOT WHILE I'M PAYING THE RENT.
ELIZABETH: HALF THE RENT.
AND I DON'T NEED YOUR MONEY.
I CAN TAKE CARE OF MYSELF.
THIS IS MY HOUSE AND MY LIFE.
NOW, I'M GOING TO LEAVE,
AND I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO BE
GONE WHEN I GET BACK.

CARLY: NOW, EXCUSE ME,
BUT AREN'T YOU THE MAN
IN CHARGE?
I MEAN, DON'T YOU CALL THE SHOTS
AROUND HERE?
SINCE WHEN DID YOU START TAKING
ORDERS FROM JASON?
SONNY: MATTER OF RESPECT.
YOU OUGHT TO TRY IT -- HONORING
SOMEBODY BESIDES YOURSELF.
CARLY: SO YOU PICKED A GREAT
TIME TO PLAY HUMBLE, DIDN'T YOU?
HOW LONG IS THIS LITTLE
EXPERIMENT OF YOURS SUPPOSED
TO LAST ANYWAY?
SONNY: TILL JASON DECIDES
TO DEAL WITH ME OR HELL FREEZES
OVER.
YOU KNOW, WHATEVER COMES FIRST.
CARLY: AND WHAT IS
HE SUPPOSED TO DO IN
THE MEANTIME, SONNY?
THIS IS A MAN WHO FORGETS TO EAT
WHEN HE'S HEALTHY, WHEN HE'S
STRONG.
HE NEEDS SOMEBODY TO CARE
FOR HIM RIGHT NOW.
SONNY: HE'S NOT ALONE.
HE'S GOT ELIZABETH.
CARLY: WHAT CAN ELIZABETH
DO FOR JASON?
I MEAN, COME ON.
SHE GOING TO PAINT HIM
A PICTURE?
FLIRT HIM BACK TO HEALTH?
HE NEEDS A GROWNUP TO LOOK AFTER
HIM, ALL RIGHT?
SONNY: YEAH.
A GROWNUP LIKE YOU?
CARLY: IT'S NOT ABOUT ME.
SONNY: OH, REALLY?
CARLY: NO.
SONNY: THE HELL IT'S NOT.

NED: OH, I WAS AFRAID WE WERE
LATE FOR THE SHOW.
JAX: NO, YOU'RE JUST IN TIME.
ALEXIS: NOT UNLESS
THE EXPERIMENTAL THEATER HAPPENS
TO BE IN THE GIFT SHOP.
JAX: IT'S RIGHT HERE.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
THANK YOU.
MIKE: THANKS.
NED: SO WHAT ARE WE CALLING
THIS LITTLE SET PIECE?
JAX: I DON'T KNOW.
THE COURTSHIP OF GERTRUDE?
JUST A FEW MORE FINISHING
TOUCHES AND MIKE'LL BE READY
TO TAKE HER ON.
MIKE: AND THE LADY WILL HAVE?
CHLOE: SPARKLING WATER.
NO, I WILL HAVE A MANHATTAN,
STRAIGHT UP.
MIKE: AH.
I TAKE IT GERTRUDE'S FOND
OF MANHATTANS.
CHLOE: OH, MORE THAN FOND.
SHE'S DEVOTED.
MIKE: I'LL HAVE A BEER.
NED: MIGHT AS WELL ORDER
A PIZZA TO GO AND INVITE HER OUT
TO THE TRAILER.
JAX: YEAH.
MIKE: FINE.
MAKE THAT TWO MANHATTANS.
WAITER: RIGHT AWAY.
MIKE: YOU KNOW, IN
MY EXPERIENCE, SUCCESSFUL MEN
ARE SECURE ENOUGH TO ORDER WHAT
THEY WANT.
CHLOE: VERY TRUE.
BUT I'M AFRAID MY AUNT GERTRUDE
IS A SLAVE TO THE AGE-OLD
TRAPPINGS.
MIKE: I MAY NOT BE YOUR MAN,
THEN.
LOOK, I DON'T CHEW WITH MY MOUTH
OPEN, BUT I DON'T SPEAK FRENCH,
EITHER.
CHLOE: YOUR ENGLISH WILL BE
PERFECTLY FINE, ESPECIALLY
IF YOU EMPHASIZE CERTAIN WORDS.
MANOR, FOR INSTANCE.
AS IN CORBIN MANOR.
MIKE: AH.
SPRAWLING ANCESTRAL ESTATE.
CHLOE: MM-HMM.
MIKE: NOW, WHERE IS THIS VERY
EXPENSIVE PIECE OF PROPERTY
LOCATED?
THE COTSWOLDS OR THE HAMPTONS?
CHLOE: WHY NOT BOTH?
MIKE: WELL, YOU KNOW,
FOR SOME PEOPLE, EXCESS IS
A TURNOFF.
I'M SENSING THAT'S NOT TRUE
WITH GERTRUDE.
CHLOE: EXCESS? NO.
EXCESS, THY NAME IS GERTRUDE.
ALEXIS: HE'S NOT B.
JAX: YEAH, AND HE'S JUST
GETTING STARTED.
ALEXIS: HE'S FUNNY,
HE'S CONFIDENT.
HE'S VERY RELAXED.
NED: MAYBE A LITTLE TOO
MUCH SO.
MIKE: YOU KNOW, YOU STRIKE ME
AS A WOMAN WHO WOULD BE VERY
GOOD WITH HORSES.
GENTLE, BUT COMMANDING,
YOU KNOW?
CHLOE: NO ONE'S EVER CALLED
ME COMMANDING BEFORE.
MIKE: BUT I BET THAT
DESCRIBES GERTRUDE.
CHLOE: OH, YES, I FORGOT.
I'M SUPPOSED TO BE GERTRUDE.
MIKE: BE WHOEVER YOU WANT.
NED: NOW, IF THIS WERE A NOEL
COWARD PLAY, CHLOE WOULD BE
LEAVING WITH HIM.
JAX: SHE'S SO BEAUTIFUL.
CHLOE: AS A MATTER OF FACT,
I DO LOVE HORSES.
MIKE: WELL, YOU SEE, WE DO
HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON.
WIN OR LOSE, I CAN'T STAY AWAY
FROM THE PONIES.
CHLOE: NEITHER CAN I.
AND ABOUT THAT LAST REMARK --
MIKE: WAS ADDRESSED TO YOU.
YOU KNOW, THIS PROJECT GERTRUDE
CAN GET A LITTLE CONFUSING.
CHLOE: OH, YOU HAVE NO IDEA.

MONICA: WELL, THIS IS
WONDERFUL.
WE'RE FUNCTIONING ON CARLY TIME.
ALAN: SHE'LL BE HERE SOON.
A.J.: EXCUSE ME.
HI.
BEEN WAITING LONG?
MONICA: WHERE IS CARLY?
A.J.: SHE SAID SHE'D BE HERE.
MONICA: AND YOU BELIEVED HER?

CARLY: DON'T CUT OFF
YOUR NOSE TO SPITE YOUR FACE,
SONNY.
COME ON.
YOU HATE ME, YOU DON'T WANT
TO BE AROUND ME?
FINE.
SO WHAT?
I TELL YOU THE BUILDING'S
ON FIRE, AND YOU'RE GOING TO SIT
HERE AND YOU'RE GOING TO BURN
BECAUSE THE NEWS CAME FROM ME?
SONNY: WELL, WHAT'S THE NEWS?
JASON'S HURTING?
I DON'T NEED YOU TO TELL ME
THAT.
JASON CAN'T MAKE IT WITHOUT US?
THAT'S NOT NEWS.
THAT'S A SELF-SERVING LINE.
CARLY: HOW IS IT
SELF-SERVING?
SONNY: ALL RIGHT.
SAY I GO TO LIZ'S STUDIO.
JASON'S IN NO SHAPE TO THROW
ME OUT.
CARLY: SO WHAT?
HE HAS TO LISTEN TO YOU.
SONNY: SO I STICK AROUND,
I TALK TO HIM, MAYBE EVEN TALK
HIM INTO COMING HOME.
CARLY: YEAH, WELL, IF ANYBODY
CAN GET THROUGH TO HIM --
SONNY: OH, IT'S ME.
IT'S HIS BEST FRIEND.
CARLY: WELL, YOU ARE HIS BEST
FRIEND.
SONNY: OH, YEAH,
I'M HIS BEST --
CARLY: YOU ARE.
SONNY -- OK, LOO YOU MESSED UP
BIG TIME.
BUT YOU CARE WHAT HAPPENS
TO HIM, RIGHT?
THERE'S NOTHING THAT
YOU WOULDN'T DO FOR JASON.
SONNY: EXCEPT FORCE HIM
TO LEAN ON SOMEBODY HE HATES.
CARLY: HE DOESN'T HATE --
HE DOES NOT HATE YOU.
HE NEVER COULD, OK?
HE'S ANGRY.
HE HAS EVERY RIGHT TO BE ANGRY.
BUT YOU CAN GET THROUGH IT.
I KNOW HIM.
SONNY: I SEE.
SO, OK, I GO TO THE STUDIO,
RIGHT?
CARLY: RIGHT.
SONNY: OK.
I'M ON MY HANDS AND KNEES
AND I TALK TO HIM ABOUT
FORGIVENESS.
IS THAT HOW YOU SEE THIS
WORKING?
CARLY: WELL, I JUST --
I REALLY THINK THAT HE WILL
FORGIVE YOU.
SONNY: WELL, SEE, I DON'T
REALLY SEE IT THAT WAY.
SO EVEN IF HE DOES HAVE A SOFT
SPOT, YOU KNOW WHAT I'M GOING
TO DO?
I'M GOING TO BACK AWAY AND LEAVE
HIM ALONE.
CARLY: OK.
SONNY: WHAT?
CARLY: OH, I MEAN, YOU KNOW,
OBVIOUSLY --
SONNY: WHAT?
CARLY: YOU HAVE TO PUNISH
YOURSELF?
THAT'S FINE.
NO, IT'S FINE.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
PUNISH YOUR LITTLE HEART OUT.
BUT DON'T DO IT AT JASON'S
EXPENSE.
SONNY: YOU KNOW, I ALREADY
TOLD YOU.
YOU KNOW WHAT JASON NEEDS IS
TO WASH HIS HANDS OF YOU.
ALL RIGHT.
LET'S SAY HE FORGIVES ME.
AND I'M NOT SAYING HE WILL.
YOU KNOW WHAT I'D RATHER DO?
I'D RATHER DROP OUT OF HIS LIFE
THAN TO SOFTEN HIM UP FOR YOU.
CARLY: YOU'RE SO TRANSPARENT.
IT'S NOT EVEN ABOUT JASON,
YOU KNOW?
IT'S NOT.
IT'S ABOUT YOU.
YOU CAN'T LOWER YOURSELF TO SAY
THAT YOU'RE SORRY?
YOU'D RATHER LOSE YOUR ONLY
FRIEND, YOUR BEST FRIEND
THAN YOUR PRIDE.
SONNY: CARLY --
CARLY: WHAT?
SONNY: YOU CAN'T WORK ME.
CARLY: YEAH, I GUESS NOT.
IT TAKES A GENIUS LIKE HANNAH
FOR THAT, HUH?
[SONNY SIGHS]
SONNY: HEY, JOHNNY?
MAKE SURE MRS. QUARTERMAINE
MAKES IT TO THE ELEVATOR,
PLEASE.
CARLY: IT'S NOT NECESSARY.
SONNY: DON'T EVEN THINK
OF COMING BACK.

ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW, I WAS
SO SCARED I WASN'T GOING TO FIND
YOU.
JASON: I DIDN'T GET TOO FAR.
ELIZABETH: YOU'RE BREATHING
AWFULLY HARD.
JASON: I'M JUST TIRED,
THAT'S ALL.
ELIZABETH: YEAH,
WELL, YOU LOOK LIKE YOU'RE ABOUT
TO FAINT.
JASON: NO, I'M FINE.
ELIZABETH: SIT DOWN.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
FIRST THING TOMORROW,
I'M GETTING A SERIOUS LOCK
FOR THAT DOOR.
JASON: THE LOCK'S NOT
THE PROBLEM.
I AM.
IT'S TIME FOR ME TO GO.
ELIZABETH: WHY?
BECAUSE MY GRANDMOTHER SAID SO?
JASON: YOU SAVED MY LIFE.
I WILL NEVER FORGET THAT.
BUT I'M A COMPLICATION YOU DON'T
NEED.
ELIZABETH: WOULD YOU PLEASE
NOT TELL ME WHAT I NEED?
WOULD YOU OUT OF ALL PEOPLE NOT
DO THAT?
DO I HAVE A SIGN ON MY HEAD THAT
SAYS "MECHANICAL DOLL -- WIND ME
UP AND STEER ME WHEREVER
YOU WANT"?
BECAUSE NIKOLAS SEEMS
TO THINK SO.
AND OBVIOUSLY SO DOES
MY GRANDMOTHER.
DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MUCH
I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE TELL ME
WHAT TO DO?
JASON: YEAH, I PROBABLY DO.

FAISON: NO WONDER YOUR LIFE'S
IN SHAMBLES, SPENCER.
YOU SELF-DESTRUCT IT.
DID YOU KNOW THAT?
LUKE: I'VE BEEN WAITING ALL
MY LIFE FOR SOMEONE LIKE
YOU TO ILLUMINATE MY FEELINGS.
FAISON: DON'T TALK TO ME LIKE
THAT.
I'M THE KEY TO YOUR FUTURE --
WHATEVER'S LEFT OF IT.
FELICIA: HE DID WHAT
YOU ASKED.
FAISON: BE QUIET,
FELICIA, WILL YOU?
I'M TALKING!
I CAN GRANT YOU ALL YOUR WISHES.
LUKE: PROVE IT.
FAISON: WELL, I'M TRYING TO,
BUT YOU'RE NOT COOPERATING.
LUKE: OPEN THE DOOR.
I'LL COOPERATE LIKE CRAZY.
FAISON: THAT'S FUNNY.
THAT'S VERY FUNNY.
IF YOU ONLY KNEW HOW GENEROUS
I'VE BEEN.
AND HAD PEOPLE BEEN EQUALLY
GENEROUS TO ME --
WELL, I'LL SPARE YOU FURTHER
MIGHT-HAVE-BEENS.
FELICIA: HE DID WHAT
YOU ASKED!
[FAISON MOCKS FELICIA]
FAISON: DO YOU KNOW WHAT?
YOU'RE STARTING TO ANNOY ME,
FELICIA.
I DIDN'T THINK THAT WAS POSSIBLE
AT ALL.
BUT THEN AGAIN, LIFE IS FILLED
WITH THE UNTHINKABLE, RIGHT?
AT ANY RATE, MINE HAVE BEEN.
YOU JUST TAKE IT EASY NOW.
TAKE IT EASY.
FELICIA: LUKE --
NO!
NO, PLEASE!
PLEASE DON'T LEAVE US!
PLEASE COME BACK.
WE'RE GOING TO DIE!
WE'RE GOING TO DIE!
LUKE: STAY CALM.
FELICIA: YOU KNOW HE'S LOCKED
US IN HERE TO KILL US!
LUKE: FELICIA --
FELICIA: WE ARE GOING TO DIE!
WE'RE GOING TO DIE!

MIKE: RIGHT.
CHLOE: RIGHT.
AND THE CURTAIN OPENS --
MIKE: SO IT STARTS --
CHLOE: OH, THANK YOU.
MIKE: THANK YOU.
CHLOE: SO I'M STANDING THERE
FROZEN IN MY TRACKS,
SPEECHLESS --
MIKE: AND THEN YOU DRAPE
THE TARP OVER THE MANNEQUIN,
AND YOU CALLED IT A WORK
IN PROGRESS.
CHLOE: PRETTY CLOSE.
HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT?
DO YOU KNOW CASSANDRA LaSTRANGE?
MIKE: NEVER HEARD
OF THE LADY.
BUT I'M GETTING TO KNOW CHLOE
MORGAN PRETTY WELL.
CHLOE: NOW, HOW CAN YOU GET
THAT FROM JUST A FEW MINUTES
OF CONVERSATION?
MIKE: YEARS OF PRACTICE.
CHLOE: HMM.
MIKE: YOU KNOW, BARTENDERS
DON'T JUST MIX DRINKS.
BUT I WON'T SHARE THAT
WITH GERTRUDE.
CHLOE: NO.
GERTRUDE, I THINK, IS
IN FOR A TREAT.
MIKE: THANK YOU.

NED: SO, EITHER CHLOE'S
HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME,
OR SHE'S ONE HECK ON
A PRETENDER.
ALEXIS: SHE'S NOT PRETENDING.
HE ACTUALLY IS DELIGHTFUL.
JAX: LET'S NOT GET AHEAD
OF OURSELVES.
NED: OH, ARE WE FEELING
A LITTLE THREATENED, JAX?
JAX: WHAT ARE YOU TALKING
ABOUT?
THREATENED BY MIKE?
COME ON.
CHLOE'S ALLOWED TO HAVE A GOOD
LAUGH.
BESIDES, I HEAR HER HUSBAND IS
DEADLY DULL.
ALEXIS: HE'S NOT.
HE'S NOT.

ALAN: CARLY'S PROBABLY STUCK
IN TRAFFIC.
MONICA: WELL, I'D BUY THAT
IF SHE COULD DRIVE.
A.J.: CABS GET STUCK.
MONICA: AND THERE ARE
CYCLONES AND AVALANCHES,
BUT THAT DOESN'T EXPLAIN WHY
SHE'S NOT HERE.
A.J.: I KNOW SHE'LL BE HERE.
MONICA: NO, YOU DON'T, A.J.
JUST LIKE I DON'T.
ALAN: SHALL WE ORDER
AN APPETIZER?
MONICA: YOU CAN PUT UP
APPEARANCES FOR EDWARD
AND YOUR BUSINESS PARTNERS
AND THEIR WIVES, BUT WE'RE
FAMILY, A.J.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO PUT ON AIRS
FOR US.
ALAN: SPEAKING OF BUSINESS --
MONICA: I DON'T THINK
WE WERE, ALAN.
ALAN: HOW DID THE RETURNS
COME IN FOR THIS QUARTER
FOR E.L.Q.?
MONICA: WHY DON'T YOU JUST
PUT YOUR FINGERS IN YOUR EARS
AND WHISTLE FOR A WHILE, OK?
ALAN: ARE WE GOING TO GET
THE ANNUAL REPORT ON TIME?
A.J.: WE MAY PUBLISH A LITTLE
LATE.
THERE WAS A SNAG WITH DYNATECH.
ALAN: OH, REALLY?
WHAT KIND OF SNAG?
A.J.: NOTHING SERIOUS.
DYNATECH'S UNDER CONTROL.
MONICA: CARLY HAS A CELL
PHONE, DOESN'T SHE?
GOOD FOR DYNATECH.
EXCUSE ME, BUT WOULDN'T IT BE
NICE TO SAY THE SAME FOR CARLY?
ALAN: WHAT ARE YOU TRYING
TO ACCOMPLISH?
MONICA: AN HONEST
CONVERSATION WITH MY SON.
A.J.: THANK YOU.
I WAS WONDERING WHAT YOU WERE
DOING.
I THOUGHT YOU WERE TRYING
TO PICK A FIGHT.
MONICA: NO, I JUST WANT
YOU TO BE HAPPY, A.J.
CAN YOU LOOK ME IN THE EYE
AND SAY YOU ARE HAPPY?
LILA: WHAT A LOVELY SURPRISE.
YOU DIDN'T TELL ME THE ENTIRE
FAMILY WOULD BE PRESENT.
EDWARD: NOT BY INVITATION.
ALAN: HELLO, MOTHER.
A.J.: HELLO.
MONICA: WELL, NOT THE ENTIRE
FAMILY.
CARLY SEEMS TO BE MISSING.
EDWARD: YOU KNOW,
A.J., IF I WERE YOU, I WOULD BE
DINING AT MY DESK OR I WOULDN'T
BE DINING AT ALL.
LILA: OH, FOR GOODNESS SAKE.
IT'S ALMOST CHRISTMAS.
EVERYONE DESERVES A LITTLE TIME
OFF.
EDWARD: OF COURSE, IF I WERE
A.J., THE DYNATECH DEAL WOULDN'T
HAVE BEEN BOTCHED.
ALAN: IT'S UNDER CONTROL.
EDWARD: WHAT THE DEVIL DO
YOU KNOW ABOUT IT?
LILA: AMANDA HASN'T ARRIVED
YET?
EDWARD: WELL, DINING
WITH INCOMPETENTS IS VERY BAD
FOR THE DIGESTIO
A.J.: WELL, HAPPY HOLIDAYS
TO YOU, TOO, GRANDFATHER.
LILA: PAY NO ATTENTION
TO HIM, DEAR.
YOU KNOW HOW GROUCHY HE CAN BE
ON AN EMPTY STOMACH.
EDWARD: OH, LOOK.
THERE'S NED.
I FEEL BETTER ALREADY.
YOU WANT TO GO SAY HELLO
TO OUR GRANDSON?
LILA: SAY HELLO FOR ME, DEAR.
I DON'T WANT TO KEEP AMANDA
WAITING.
EDWARD: OH, ALL RIGHT.
I'LL WALK OUT THERE
WITH YOU AND SAY HELLO.
A.J.: WELL, IT'S BEEN A REAL
PLEASURE SO FAR.
MONICA: ANY MORE IDEAS, ALAN?
MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST CALL TRACY
AND GET A WHOLE FAMILY RETREAT
GOING.
A.J.: WHAT DO YOU SUPPOSE
NED'S GETTING FOR CHRISTMAS,
HMM?
MY JOB IN A WRAPPED GIFT BOX?
ALAN: NED DOESN'T WANT
YOUR JOB.
A.J.: YEAH, WELL,
GRANDFATHER WILL KEEP OFFERING
IT TO HIM UNTIL HE FINALLY WEARS
HIM DOWN.
WELL, DON'T EVERYBODY DISAGREE
WITH ME AT ONCE.

LUKE: FELICIA, YOU'VE HELD
ON THIS LONG.
DON'T CAVE NOW.
DON'T GIVE HIM WHAT HE WANTS.
FELICIA: IT'S FINISHED, LUKE.
LUKE: NO.
NO, YOU'RE NOT FINISHED.
YOU'RE SMART, YOU'RE COURAGEOUS,
YOU GOT BACKUP.
YOU'RE HALFWAY HOME.
FELICIA: I'M NEVER GOING
HOME.
NEITHER ARE YOU.
LUKE: OH, DARLING, WE'VE BEEN
IN A LOT WORSE POSITIONS THAN
THIS.
MAUSOLEUMS, MEXICAN JAILS --
FELICIA: OH, MY BABIES.
OH, MY BABIES!
LUKE: HEY, HEY -- NO,
THEY'RE FINE, FELICIA.
THEY'RE SAFE.
THEY'LL BE SO GLAD TO SEE YOU.
FELICIA: YOU'RE TRYING
SO HARD.
IT'S NOT GOING TO WORK.
WE'RE GOING TO DIE.
LUKE: NO, NO, WE'RE NOT GOING
TO DIE.
I DON'T WANT TO HEAR THAT.
NO DYING.
WE'RE GOING TO TOUGH THIS OUT.
FELICIA: WE CAN'T TOUGH THIS
OUT.
HE'S GOING TO POISON US
WITH GAS.
THIS -- THIS PLACE
IS A REPLICA OF A NUCLEAR LAB
THAT HE USED TO WORK IN.
AND THERE WAS THIS WOMAN THAT
HE WAS IN LOVE WITH.
THERE WAS AN ACCIDENT,
AND SHE WAS TRAPPED INSIDE.
LUKE: THAT STORY IS PROBABLY
A LIE.
FELICIA: NO, HE HAD TO SEAL
THE DOOR.
THAT WAS HIS JOB -- TO SEAL
THE DOOR.
AND SHE WAS POUNDING
ON THE DOOR, BEGGING
AND PLEADING FOR HIM TO OPEN UP
THE DOOR, BUT ALL HE COULD DO
WAS WATCH HER DIE.
LUKE: GOD.
FELICIA: HE KEPT RELIVING
THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN --
TRAPPING WOMEN AND WATCHING THEM
DIE.
THAT'S WHAT HE DID TO ANNA.
AND ME.
US.

SONNY: EVERYTHING OK?
ELIZABETH: FINE. FINE.
BASICALLY.
SONNY: JASON'S NOT WORSE?
ELIZABETH: NO.
NO, NO, NO, NO.
HE'S GOOD.
BOBBIE SAID HE'S COMING ALON
JUST FINE.
SONNY: DO YOU NEED ANYTHING?
ELIZABETH: UH-UH, NOT RIGHT
NOW.
BUT IF WE DO, I PROMISE TO LET
YOU KNOW.
SONNY: THANKS FOR TAKING CARE
OF HIM.
ELIZABETH: YOU DON'T HAVE
TO THANK ME.
I'M JUST TAKING CARE
OF A FRIEND.
HANNAH: SONNY, WAIT.
PLEASE.
PLEASE.

HANNAH: I JUST WANTED TO LET
YOU KNOW THAT I'M STAYING
IN TOWN.
SONNY: I'M SUPPOSED TO CARE?
HANNAH: I'LL BE WITH
THE POLICE DEPARTMENT.
THE F.B.I. --
SONNY: F.B.I. LIAISON.
I KNOW.
YOUR BUDDY TAGGERT ALREADY
FILLED ME IN.
HANNAH: PLEASE DON'T THINK
THAT -- THAT YOU'RE MY CASE
OR ANYTHING.
AND I DON'T WANT YOU TO WORRY
ABOUT --
SONNY: NO, I STOPPED WORRYING
ABOUT YOU A LONG TIME AGO.
HANNAH: ACTUALLY,
PART OF MY ASSIGNMENT IS TO STAY
AWAY FROM YOU.
SONNY: WORKS FOR ME.
HANNAH: IT DOESN'T FOR ME.
AND THIS IS REALLY HARD
BECAUSE I REALLY LOVE YOU.
I WISH YOU WOULD JUST LET ME
SHOW YOU THAT.
WILL YOU GIVE ME A CHANCE,
SONNY?

ELIZABETH: HERE IT IS -- SOME
CREAM OF BROCCOLI.
FILLED WITH FIBER AND VITAMIN C
AND CALCIUM.
JASON: THAT WOULD BE
BROCCOLI.
ELIZABETH: WHAT, DO THEY TAKE
ALL THE NUTRIENTS OUT BEFORE
THEY TURN IT INTO SOUP?
I SAW SONNY AGAIN.
JASON: AGAIN?
ELIZABETH: YEAH, I WAS ABOUT
TO TELL YOU WHEN MY GRANDMOTHER
CAME CHARGING IN.
HE'S WORRIED ABOUT YOU.
JASON: I'M NOT SONNY'S
PROBLEM.
ELIZABETH: YEAH,
WELL, YOU SHOULD TRY TELLING HIM
THAT.
JASON: I THOUGHT I DID TELL
HIM THAT.
ELIZABETH: WELL, AT LEAST
HE DOESN'T TRY TO BARREL IN HERE
AND TAKE OVER YOUR LIFE.
I SHOULD BE SO LUCKY.
WITH ME, PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHEN
TO QUIT.
JASON: WELL, MAYBE
THEY DIDN'T KNOW BEFORE,
BUT I THINK THEY'RE STARTING
TO GET THE MESSAGE.
ELIZABETH: THINK SO?
JASON: OH, YEAH.
YOU'VE MADE IT VERY CLEAR.
REMIND ME NEVER TO MAKE YOU MAD.
ELIZABETH: NOW, YOU GOING
TO EAT THIS SOUP?
REMEMBER, I'M DANGEROUS WHEN
CROSSED.
MMM.
HOLD IT?
JASON: YEAH.
ELIZABETH: YOU WANT TO DO IT?
JASON: I'LL TRY.

ALEXIS: YOU SURPASSED
OUR EXPECTATIONS.
MIKE: OH, SO YOU WEREN'T
EXPECTING MUCH, HUH?
NED: NO, NO, MIKE.
THESE WOMEN ACTUALLY HAVE VERY
HIGH STANDARDS.
JAX: WELL, AT LEAST ONE
OF THEM DOES.
CHLOE: I WOULD GIVE HIM AN A.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
ALEXIS: A 9.5.
MIKE: AH.
MINUS POINTS FOR ORDERING
THE BEER.
ALEXIS: THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT,
MIKE.
THAT BEER COST YOU THREE POINTS.
AND THEN TWO POINTS FOR PHYSICAL
CONTACT, OR LACK THEREOF.
CHLOE: OH, A GENTLEMAN NEVER
MAULS HIS DATE.
ALEXIS: DEPENDS WHO YOU'RE
DATING.
NOW, I THINK A GENTLE TOUCH
IN CONVERSATION IS PROBABLY
A NICE THING.
NED: DO I DO THAT?
JAX: PROBABLY NOT.
THAT'S BECAUSE SHE'S MARRIED
TO ME.
SO, MIKE, DO YOU WANT THE JOB?
MIKE: WELL, WHO CAN REFUSE
A GRAND A SHOT FOR SPENDING TIME
WITH A CHARMING LADY?
NED: CORRECTION.
TIME WITH GERTRUDE.
MIKE: WELL, SHE'S CHLOE'S
AUNT.
HOW BAD CAN SHE BE?
CHLOE: GERTRUDE.
GERTRUDE.
JAX: OH.
CHLOE: IT IS WONDERFUL TO SEE
YOU.
GERTRUDE: IT IS?
CHLOE: ABSOLUTELY.
I WOULD LIKE YOU TO MEET A DEAR
FRIEND OF MINE.
MIKE CORBIN, THIS IS MY AUNT
GERTRUDE.

CARLY: SORRY.
A.J.: HEY.
CARLY: I LOST TRACK OF TIME
AT WYNDHAM'S DEPARTMENT STORE
IN THE KID'S TOY STORE.
ALAN: IT'S PERFECTLY
UNDERSTANDABLE.
THERE'S ONLY FOUR SHOPPING DAYS
LEFT.
MONICA: HAVE THEY REDECORATED
THAT STORE?
I SEEM TO REMEMBER THERE WERE
CLOCKS IN IT.
A.J.: THE BOUILLABAISSE IS
EXCELLENT.
MONICA: BE SURE TO TELL
THE WAITER IT'S THE SECOND
SHIFT.
ALAN: SO, WHAT DID YOU BUY
FOR MY GRANDSON?
CARLY: OODLES OF STUFF.
I WENT HOG-WILD.
MONICA: AND YOU CHECKED THEM
IN THE COAT ROOM?
CARLY: I HAD THEM SENT.
ALAN: WHY DON'T YOU HAVE
A BRANDY OR A PILL OR SOMETHING?
MONICA: WHY?
TO LOOSEN MY TONGUE?
A.J.: THE CHEESECAKE'S
FANTASTIC.
ALAN: ACTUALLY, WE HAVE
TO GO.
MONICA: "WE"?
ALAN: YES.
I NEED YOUR INPUT ON
THE QUARTERLY BUDGET REPORT.
MONICA: ACTUALLY, I MANAGED
TO DO THAT BY MYSELF, BUT THANK
YOU FOR ASKING.
CARLY: I'M SO SORRY THAT
I KEPT YOU WAITING.
MONICA: OH, THAT'S ALL RIGHT.
WE'RE USED TO IT.
ALAN: ENJOY YOUR DINNER.
MONICA: AND YOUR SECOND ONE.
ALAN: OH, HE'LL ENJOY
THE COMPANY.
A.J.: THAT'S RIGHT.
ALAN: ARE YOU ACTIVELY TRYING
TO MAKE THINGS WORSE?
MONICA: MAKE THINGS WORSE?
THEY COULDN'T GET ANY WORSE.
THAT MARRIAGE IS A DISASTER.

LUKE: FELICIA,
YOUR NERVES ARE SHOT.
IT'SOTALLY UNDERSTANDABLE.
HE'S WORN YOU DOWN.
BUT YOU'VE GOT TO KEEP FIGHTING
BACK.
FELICIA: WHAT DO YOU THINK
I'VE BEEN DOING?
LUKE: I KNOW, DARLING.
THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING.
YOU'RE TOO TOUGH TO BREAK.
DON'T LET HIM WIN NOW.
FELICIA: HE TOOK ME TO THIS
ROOM AND HAD THESE HANDCUFFS --
LUKE: YEAH, I KNOW.
I SAW IT.
THE EDGAR ALLAN POE HONEYMOON
SUITE.
DID HE TOUCH YOU?
FELICIA: NO.
JUST TO DANCE WITH ME.
THERE WAS MUSIC PLAYING.
HE WANTED ME TO LOVE HIM,
AND I WENT ALONG WITH IT.
LUKE: WELL, THAT'S WHAT
YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE.
FELICIA: NO, THAT'S NOT WHAT
I SHOULD HAVE DONE.
I MADE THIS KNIFE OUT OF GLASS,
AND I HELD IT TO HIS NECK.
I DON'T KNOW WHY I DIDN'T JUST
KILL HIM.
I'M SO STUPID!
LUKE: YOU'LL GET ANOTHER
CHANCE.
FELICIA: NO, WE WON'T.
IT'S HOPELESS.
JUST LIKE IT WAS WITH ANNA.
HE CAN'T HAVE ME, SO HE'S GOING
TO KILL ME.
LUKE: LOOK, I'M NOT GOING
TO LET THAT HAPPEN.
YOU JUST KEEP SAYING OVER
AND OVER WE'RE GOING TO GET OUT
OF THIS.

A.J.: THANK YOU.
WAITER: YOU'RE WELCOME.
A.J.: OH, YOU'RE GOING
TO LOVE THIS.
DIG IN WHILE IT'S HOT.
CARLY: FISH.
A.J.: BOUILLABAISSE.
FISH STEW.
CARLY: PERFECT.
A.J.: WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
YOU ORDER FISH ALL THE TIME.
CARLY: NO, I DON'T, A.J.
YOU ORDER IT FOR ME ALL
THE TIME.
GUESS YOU DON'T NOTICE THAT
I NEVER TOUCH IT.
I HATE FISH, ACTUALLY.
SOME PEOPLE WOULD'VE FIGURED
THAT OUT BY NOW, BUT NOT YOU.
YOU'RE A LITTLE SLOW, I GUESS.
THAT'S WHY YOU THINK YOU C
CONTROL ME.
BUT, HONEY, YOU KNOW WHAT?
YOU'RE GOING TO FIND OUT
THE HARD WAY.
EXCUSE ME?
WAITER, COULD YOU GET THIS OUT
OF MY FACE, PLEASE?
BRING ME A CHEESEBURGER
WITH FRENCH FRIES RIGHT AWAY.
EXTRA RARE.
WAITER: SURE, RIGHT AWAY.
MIKE: NO, MADAME, I MEANT
THE WINE.
[LAUGHTER]
GERTRUDE: MY, YOU DO TELL
A GOOD STORY.
YOU'RE NOT A WRITER, ARE YOU?
MIKE: NO.
NO, ACTUALLY, I'M IN REAL ESTATE
DEVELOPMENT.
GERTRUDE: OH.
WELL, FASCINATING.
NED: GERTRUDE, I DIDN'T KNOW
YOU WERE FASCINATED
WITH REAL ESTATE.
GERTRUDE: THERE'S A LOT ABOUT
ME YOU DON'T KNOW, ISN'T THERE?
ARE WE ALL SITTING TOGETHER NOW?
JAX: YOU KNOW, I ALWAYS
THOUGHT FASHION WAS
YOUR PRINCIPAL FOCUS.
MIKE: WELL, MOST GIFTED
PEOPLE HAVE A VARIETY
OF INTERESTS.
GERTRUDE: WELL, THANK YOU.
D LOVE TO HEAR MORE ABOUT
YOUR INTERESTS.
MIKE: WELL, THAT CAN BE
ARRANGED.
GERTRUDE: WELL, I ACTUALLY DO
HAVE AN APPOINTMENT.
OH, DOES ANYE HAVE A CELL
PHONE?
MIKE: WELL, YOU KNOW,
IT'S SO FUNNY.
WE WERE JUST DISCUSSING THAT.
WOULD YOU BELIEVE WE ALL LEFT
THEM AT HOME?
GERTRUDE: HOW ODD.
WELL.
PERHAPS ANOTHER TIME.
MIKE: COUNT ON THAT.
GERTRUDE: WELL --
HMM.
GOOD EVENING.
ALEXIS: YOU WERE MAGNIFICENT.
NED: OH, YES.
MIKE: IS MY SMILE STILL
PLASTERED ON?
CHLOE: WELL, SHE CAN BE
CHARMING, CAN'T SHE?
MIKE: MY RATES JUST SHOT UP.
JAX: WELL, I'M SURE WE CAN
WORK SOMETHING OUT.
MAN: MISS DAVIS?
THERE'S A CALL FOR YOU
AT THE DESK.
ALEXIS: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
I'LL TAKE IT IN JUST A SECOND.
YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BAIL ON US
NOW, ARE YOU?
NED: NO, NO, NO, NO.
HE IS GOING TO GET RICH.
WHY DON'T YOU --
LET'S REDEFINE YOUR SALARY
REQUIREMENTS ON THE WAY
TO THE CAR, OK?
VERY GD.
JAX: NED?
NED: YES?
JAX: WHATEVER HE ASKS FOR,
HE'S WORTH EVERY CENT.
CHLOE: HEY, HEY, BE CAREFUL.
JAX: I DON'T WANT TO BE
CAREFUL.
I WANT TO SWEEP YOU
INTO MY ARMS.
CHLOE: OH.
JAX: YOU KNOW THAT PRACTICE
DATE?
CHLOE: MM-HMM?
JAX: IT WAS A FLASH
OF GENIUS.
CHLOE: I NEVER GIVE UP WHEN
I WANT SOMETHING.
JAX: HMM.
CHLOE: HMM.

SONNY: I DON'T WANT
YOU TO PROVE YOU LOVE ME.
I DON'T WANT YOU TO LOVE ME,
NOT THAT YOU DO.
I DON'T WANT YOU TO TALK TO ME
IF YOU PASS ME ON THE STREET.
AND I DON'T WANT TO
HEAR ABOUT YOUR LIFE.
I DON'T CARE WHERE YOU LIVE,
WHAT PLANET, WHERE YOU WORK,
WHO YOU'RE WITH.
I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU'RE
THINKING, WHAT YOU'RE FEELING.
AS A MATTER OF FACT, I DON'T
CARE WHETHER YOU LIVE
OR YOU DIE.

JASON: BROCCOLI SOUP.
THAT WASN'T HALF BAD.
ELIZABETH: WELL, I'LL GIVE
TAMMY YOUR COMPLIMENTS.
OR MAYBE NOT.
JASON: ISN'T IT GETTING KIND
OF LATE?
ELIZABETH: YEAH, IT'S ABOUT
10:30.
JASON: SHOULDN'T YOU BE
GETTING HOME?
ELIZABETH: OH, DID I FORGET
TO MENTION?
THIS IS WHERE I LIVE NOW
JASON: AUDREY DIDN'T THROW
YOU OUT, DID SHE?
ELIZABETH: I DECLARED
MY INDEPENDENCE.

FELICIA: THIS IS IT.
LUKE: COULD BE.
FELICIA: ARE YOU AFRAID?
LUKE: NO.
FELICIA: NEITHER AM I.
AT LEAST I HAVE YOU HERE.
LUKE: I MEANT WHAT I SAID.

>> STAY TUNED FOR SCENES FROM
THE NEXT "GENERAL HOSPITAL."

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

NED: THERE'S SOMETHING VERY
IMPORTANT I NEED TO SPEAK
TO YOU ABOUT.
JUAN: DID I DO SOMETHING
WRONG?
NED: I WANT YOU TO TELL ME
THAT YOU DIDN'T.

A.J.: I'M LETTING YOU KNOW
THAT THE RULES OF OUR MARRIAGE
ARE ABOUT TO CHANGE.

BOBBIE: I JUST WANTED TO WISH
YOU A HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND --

LAURA: THAT'S SO SWEET.
