KATHERINE: WE COULD CHRISTEN
THE PLACE WITH CHAMPAGNE OR ANY
OTHER WAY YOU LIKE.
JASON: HI, GRANDMOTHER.
SOMETHING WRONG?
LILA: MICHAEL IS SO UNHAPPY.
PLEASE COME OVER HERE AND SEE
HIM.
TAMMY: THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE
HOME.
LUKE: I DON'T WANT TO GO
THERE.
TAMMY: MET YOUR WIFE
THE OTHER DAY, THAT'S ALL.

STEFAN: LAURA.
LAURA: WHAT?
STEFAN: YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL.
LET ME LOOK AT YOU.
LAURA: ALL RIGHT.
STEFAN: YES.
STEFAN: I'M SORRY.
IF YOU'D PREFER TO GO BACK,
NOT GO TO THE OPERA,
I WOULD UNDERSTAND.
LAURA: NO.
I'M GOING.
STEFAN: ALL RIGHT.
KATHERINE: WAIT, WAIT.
NIKOLAS: WHAT?
KATHERINE: WE ARE
SUPPOSED TO BE
CHRISTENING YOUR VERY FIRST
ADDRESS OF YOUR OWN.
NIKOLAS: OH.
IF THAT MEANS I HAVE TO CALL IT,
LIKE, WYNDEMERE OF THE WEST,
THEN, NO, I REFUSE.
KATHERINE: NO.
IT JUST MEANS THAT YOU NEED
TO UNCORK THIS.
NIKOLAS: OH.
KATHERINE: YOU DO KNOW HOW,
DON'T YOU?
NIKOLAS: GIVE ME THE BOTTLE.
IN EUROPE WE LEARN TO OPEN
A BOTTLE OF CHAMPAGNE BEFORE
WE LEARN TO READ.
KATHERINE: OH.
OH, THESE WINDOWS ARE BEAUTIFUL.
REALLY IS IDYLLIC HERE.
I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE PERFECT
FOR YOU.
NIKOLAS: YEAH, I THOUGHT SO,
TOO.
KATHERINE: SO, WHEN DO
YOU MOVE IN?
NIKOLAS: I'M IN.
KATHERINE: WELL, WHERE DO
YOU SLEEP?
NIKOLAS: ON ANY NUMBER
OF HORIZONTAL SURFACES.
KATHERINE: SO ONE MINUTE
YOU JUST THOUGHT, "I'M GOING
TO GET A PLACE OF MY OWN,"
AND THEN YOU JUST DID IT?
NIKOLAS: PRETTY MUCH.
KATHERINE: OF COURSE.
THAT'S SO LIKE YOU.
MMM.
THANK YOU.
WELL, CHEERS.
NIKOLAS: I DON'T LIKE
CHAMPAGNE.
KATHERINE: I'VE SEEN
YOU DRINK CHAMPAGNE BEFORE.
NIKOLAS: BUT YOU HAVEN'T SEEN
ME LIKE IT, HAVE YOU?
KATHERINE: I'VE ORDERED IT
FOR US BEFORE.
NIKOLAS: AND I'D WISH YOU'D
STOP.
KATHERINE: WHY DIDN'T
YOU EVER SAY SOMETHING?
NIKOLAS: BECAUSE THAT WOULD
BE RUDE.
SEE, THIS IS MY HOUSE,
AND I WILL ONLY SAY THINGS THAT
I MEAN AND DO THINGS THAT I WANT
TO DO IN IT.
JASON: IS MICHAEL SICK?
IS HE HURT?
LILA: THERE'S NOT A THING
WRONG WITH HIM, DEAR,
EXCEPT THAT HE NEEDS
YOU DESPERATELY.
WILL YOU COME?
JASON: GRANDMOTHER, YOU HAVE
TO TELL ME,
IS THIS A TRICK?
BECAUSE THE JUDGE SAID
I COULDN'T BE AROUND MICHAEL.
ARE THEY MAKING YOU CALL?
LILA: I THINK YOU KNOW ME
BETTER THAN THAT.
JASON: THEN I'LL BE RIGHT
THERE.
LILA: OH, THANK YOU, DEAR.
CARLY: IS HE COMING?
LILA: MM-HMM.
EMILY: OF COURSE HE'S COMING.
A.J.: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
WHAT YOU'VE JUST DONE?
EDWARD: HAVING JASON HERE
VIOLATES THE TERMS OF
THE CUSTODY DECISION.
LILA: THEN HAVE ME ARRESTED.
EMILY, DEAR, WOULD YOU PLEASE
ASK COOK -- TELL HER THAT WE'RE
GOING TO NEED A TURKEY SANDWICH
AND HOT CHOCOLATE SERVED
IN THE NURSERY.
SHE'LL UNDERSTAND.
EDWARD: WE'RE NOT FEEDING
HIM.
SONNY: WHEN WERE YOU GOING
TO MENTION YOU WERE CARRYING?
JASON: IT DOESN'T MATTER NOW.
MORENO WILL HAVE TO WAIT.
SONNY: HAVE THEY REALIZED
THEY MADE A MISTAKE?
JASON: ALL SHE SAID WAS
HE NEEDED ME.
SONNY: THAT THEY ALREADY
KNEW.
JASON: YEAH.
I'LL SEE YOU LATER.
A.J.: I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE
ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN.
EDWARD: YOU KNOW HOW
YOUR GRANDMOTHER GETS.
MONICA: HASN'T IT OCCURRED
TO ANYBODY ELSE THAT THIS COULD
BE AN OPPORTUNITY.
CARLY: MAYBE.
IT MIGHT NOT BE SO BAD IF JASON
CAN GET HIM TO QUIET DOWN.
A.J.: "NOT SO BAD"?
CARLY: WELL, HEY,
LOOK, WE'RE ALL ON EDGE.
WE'RE EXHAUSTED.
EMILY: WHAT ABOUT NEXT TIME?
THAT'S WHAT I WANT TO KNOW.
EDWARD: THERE WON'T BE A NEXT
TIME.
CARLY: EMILY, IF YOU DON'T
HAVE ANYTHING CONSTRUCTIVE
TO SAY --
MONICA: DON'T TELL
MY DAUGHTER WHAT SHE CAN
OR CANNOT SAY.
EMILY: COME ON, CARLY.
YOU REALLY THINK THAT MICHAEL IS
GOING TO LIKE IT ANY BETTER HERE
AFTER JASON HAS COME AND GONE?
OF COURSE THERE'S GOING TO BE
A NEXT TIME WHEN HE'S CRYING ALL
THROUGH THE NIGHT -- AND THEN
A TIME AFTER THAT AND A TIME
AFTER THAT.
A.J.: EXACTLY.
MICHAEL'S DOING WHAT
CHILDREN DO.
HAS IT BEEN SO LONG SINCE
THERE'S BEEN A CHILD IN THIS
HOUSE THAT YOU'VE FORGOTTEN WHAT
IT'S LIKE?
HE'S BEING STUBBORN AND WILLFUL,
AND HE'S TRYING TO GET HIS WAY.
BUT IT'S GETTING ON YOUR NERVES.
EDWARD: HMM.
A.J.: YOU WANT YOUR PEACE
AND QUIET BACK.
WELL, TOO BAD.
MONICA: OK, A.J., YOU ARE
FRUSTRATED --
A.J.: MOM, PLEASE, DON'T TALK
DOWN TO ME.
MONICA: I'M NOT.
A.J., THERE'S A BIG DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN A TANTRUM AND ABJECT
MISERY THE CHILD IS GOING
THROUGH SINCE HE CAME TO THIS
HOUSE.
A.J.: "ABJECT"?
WHAT IS THAT?
MICHAEL'S NOT SICK
OR COLD OR DIRTY OR HUNGRY.
MONICA: HE IS LONELY
AND FRIGHTENED.
A.J.: OF COURSE HE'S LONELY
AND FRIGHTENED -- BECAUSE
HE DOESN'T KNOW US.
WE'RE STRANGERS TO HIM.
[MICHAEL CRIES]
A.J.: THANKS TO JASON.
LILA: HIS CAR JUST PULLED
INTO THE DRIVEWAY.
EDWARD: WELL, HE WON'T ENTER
THIS HOUSE UNTIL HE AGREES
TO A FEW CONDITIONS.
AND NUMBER ONE -- THE INVITATION
THAT BROUGHT HIM HERE WILL NOT
BE REPEATED.
NUMBER TWO -- HE WILL STAY ONLY
UNTIL MICHAEL FALLS ASLEEP
AND NOT A MOMENT LONGER.
NUMBER THREE -- ANY FURTHER
ENCROACHMENT ON THESE PREMISES
WILL BE MET WITH APPROPRIATE
LEGAL ACTION.
MONICA: YOU THREATEN HIM,
EDWARD, AND I WILL THROW
YOU OUT OF THIS HOUSE,
YOU WINDBAG.
CARLY: THIS IS HER HOUSE?
EMILY: DAD GAVE IT TO HER.
[DOORBELL RINGS]
EMILY: THANK GOD.
EDWARD: ALL RIGHT,
NOW, SEE HERE, YOUNG MAN.
BEFORE YOU CROSS THIS THRESHOLD,
YOU AND I HAVE TO COME
TO AN UNDERSTANDING.
[MICHAEL CRIES]
EDWARD: NOW, WAIT.
YOU CAN'T --
WILL YOU --
JASON: MICHAEL!
JASON: HEY.
OH.
I'M SO SORRY.
IT'S OK.
NIKOLAS: SO IS IT CHRISTENED
YET?
KATHERINE: THE LIVING
ROOM IS.
NIKOLAS: WELL, WHEN WE'RE
DONE WITH THE INDOOR ROOMS,
WE'LL GO OUT AND WORK
ON THE ACREAGE OUT BACK.
KATHERINE: CAN WE WAIT TILL
IT'S WARMER?
NIKOLAS: THEN WE'LL HAVE
SHEBA TO CONTEND WITH.
KATHERINE: YOU'RE MOVING
YOUR HORSE IN?
NIKOLAS: AS SOON
AS THE STABLE'S DONE, YEAH.
KATHERINE: YOU CAN'T TELL ME
THAT YOU GOT YOUR LANDLORD
TO BUILD YOU A STABLE.
NIKOLAS: LANDLADY. NO.
BUT SHE SAID SHE WOULDN'T MIND
IF I BUILT ONE.
KATHERINE: SHE'S NO FOOL.
NIKOLAS: I HIRED
A CONTRACTOR.
HE'S DRAWING UP SOME PLANS.
BUT HE WANTED TO CUT TOO MANY
TREES DOWN TO BUILD THE PADDOCK,
SO I TOLD HIM TO GO BACK
TO THE DRAWING BOARD.
KATHERINE: YOU'RE AMAZING.
NIKOLAS: ALL IT TAKES IS
MONEY.
KATHERINE: SO WHAT DOES
STEFAN THINK OF ALL THIS?
NIKOLAS: HE JUST WANTS ME
TO BE HAPPY.
KATHERINE: HAPPY IF HE CAN
SEE YOU.
NIKOLAS: HE HAD SOME
RESERVATIONS, BUT, YOU KNOW,
WE WORKED IT OUT.
KATHERINE: AT THE TOP
OF YOUR LUNGS?
NIKOLAS: WE DON'T HAVE
ARGUMENTS LIKE THAT.
KATHERINE: DO YOU EXPECT ME
TO BELIEVE THAT YOUR FATHER,
THE REIGNING CONTROL FREAK,
JUST STOOD AT THE DOOR WAVING
AND WISHING YOU HIS BLESSING?
NIKOLAS: DO YOU GET A THRILL
OUT OF KNOWING THAT HE'S ANGRY?
KATHERINE: IS THAT WHAT
YOU THINK?
NIKOLAS: WHY BRING HIM UP,
YOU KNOW?
WHY DO YOU THINK I GOT A PLACE
OF MY OWN, KATHERINE?
I DON'T LIKE INVENTING EXCUSES
TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE OR STAY
UP ALL NIGHT, YOU KNOW?
I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO ACCOUNT
TO HIM FOR WHOM I SEE OR SLEEP
WITH.
SO, JUST DON'T MAKE ME ACCOUNT
TO YOU FOR MY RELATIONSHIP
WITH HIM.
KATHERINE: SO YOU'RE TELLING
ME THAT YOU TOOK THIS PLACE
SO YOU'D BE FREE TO SEE ME?
NIKOLAS: "PRINCE DITCHES
CROWN, MOVES INTO LOVE NEST."
YEAH, THAT'S MY 1999 HEADLINE.
KATHERINE: ALL RIGHT.
THAT PERSON THAT WE NEED NOT
MENTION HIS NAME ISN'T A PART
OF OUR LIFE.
SO WE DON'T NEED TO MENTION HIM
ANYMORE.
STEFAN: HMM.
I'D FORGOTTEN.
BIZET DIED THE SAME YEAR
"CARMEN" WAS FIRST PERFORMED.
LAURA: REALLY?
STEFAN: HE WAS 36 YEARS
OF AGE.
THE COMPOSER -- WHEN HE DIED.
LAURA: UH-HUH.
STEFAN: IS THERE A JOKE PAGE
IN YOUR PROGRAM?
I DON'T SEEM TO FIND ONE
IN MINE.
LAURA: I'M SORRY.
I'M SORRY.
STEFAN: MAY I SAY NO ONE HAS
EVER FOUND ME SO AMUSING.
OR AMUSING IN THE SLIGHTEST,
FOR THAT MATTER.
LAURA: OH, DEAR.
STEFAN: WHERE DID YOU FIND
THOSE?
NIKOLAS LOST A PAIR LIKE THAT
JUST LAST YEAR.
LAURA: OH, IS THAT WHAT
HE TOLD YOU?
STEFAN: LET ME SEE THOSE.
DID HE TAPE SOMETHING
TO THE LENSES?
LAURA: OH, STOP IT, STOP IT.
NO. PEOPLE ARE LOOKING.
DON'T DO THAT.
STEFAN: WELL, WHAT AM
I DOING?
I'M READING MY PROGRAM.
WHAT IS SO FUNNY?
LAURA: I'M SORRY.
STEFAN: WHAT?
LAURA: IT'S THAT I CAN'T STOP
THINKING ABOUT WHAT NIKOLAS TOLD
ME ABOUT YOU DRAGGING HIM
TO THE OPERA.
IT'S SO --
STEFAN: I'M SURE HE NEVER
SAID ANYTHING OF THE KIND.
LAURA: HE SAID HE WAS
SO BORED HE HAD A NEAR-DEATH
EXPERIENCE.
STEFAN: AT "AIDA"?
THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE.
YOU THINK IT WAS TRUE?
HE WAS REALLY BORED?
LAURA: I'M SORRY.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
I THINK THAT PROBABLY MOST
TEENAGED BOYS WOULD FEEL
OBLIGATED TO ROLL THEIR EYES
AT OPERA.
AND IT'S, YOU KNOW,
PROBABLY TRUE THAT HE WOULDN'T
HAVE GONE WITHOUT YOU.
STEFAN: UNLESS I
FORCED HIM TO GO.
LAURA: NO, I WOULDN'T SAY
THAT.
MAYBE IT JUST WAS EASIER
WITH SOMEBODY LIKE YOU.
YOU KNOW, YOU'RE SORT
OF AN OPERATIC CHARACTER
YOURSELF.
STEFAN: I?
I CAN'T SING A NOTE.
[MUSIC PLAYS]
LUKE: FIVE, SIX, SEVEN,
EIGHT, NINE, 10.
HEY, WHAT'S UP?
ARE WE ON FIRE?
SONNY: IS THAT MY REPUTATION,
THE TORCH MAN COMETH?
LUKE: YOU DON'T SHOW
YOUR FACE AROUND HERE MUCH.
SONNY: I CAME BY LAST WEEK.
CLAUDE SAID THAT YOU WERE
ON A BUSINESS TRIP.
LUKE: YEAH, ACTUALLY,
A NOBODY'S BUSINESS TRIP.
SONNY: OH.
THE REASON I'VE BEEN SCARCE IS
MORENO'S BEEN MAKING LIFE
MISERABLE.
LUKE: YEAH, I FIGURED.
SONNY: IT'S DRIVING JASON
NUTS NOT KNOWING WHEN AND WHERE
HE'S GOING TO STRIKE.
I DON'T THINK IT'S GOING TO BE
HERE.
BUT IF YOU SEE EXTRA MUSCLE
HANGING AROUND AT NIGHT,
THAT BELONGS TO ME.
LUKE: GREAT.
BIG CEMENT-FACE BRUISERS
IN SUITS.
THAT'S ALWAYS REAL GOOD
FOR BUSINESS.
LUKE: YOU'RE NOT THINKING
HALF OF THIS IS YOURS?
BECAUSE THIS AIN'T CLUB MONEY.
IT'S A LITTLE PRIVATE STASH.
SONNY: FROM YOUR "NOBODY'S
BUSINESS TRIP"?
LUKE: CORRECT.
SONNY: ANYWAY, IT'S JASON
AND ME MORENO'S AFTER.
I DON'T THINK HIS SIGHT'S GOING
TO BE ON THE CLUB IF WE'RE NOT
AROUND.
BUT THEN AGAIN, WE WEREN'T
AT THE WAREHOUSE WHEN IT BURNED
DOWN.
WE'VE ALWAYS SAID, YOU AND ME,
THAT IF ANYTHING EVER GOT
UNCOMFORTABLE YOU CAN BUY ME
OUT, ANYTIME.
LUKE: WHY WOULD I WANT TO DO
THAT?
YOU KNOW, MAYBE I'D LIKE TO TAKE
SOMETHING INTO THE NEXT CENTURY
BESIDES A TOOTHBRUSH.
WHAT?
SONNY: YOU DON'T USE
A TOOTHBRUSH LONGER THAN SIX
MONTHS, DO YOU?
LUKE: YEAH.
SOMETIMES A YEAR.
IF I'M FEELING REAL LUCKY,
I DON'T EVEN FLOSS.
SONNY: WOW.
LUKE: 50s.
20s.
SONNY: SALUD.
LUKE: PROSIT.
LUKE: SO, MAN, THIS IS HOW IT
IS BETWEEN US NOW, HUH?
YOU STICK YOUR HEAD IN THE DOOR
ONLY TO SAY I COULD BUY YOU OUT.
WHAT'S REALLY UP?
SONNY: WHEN WE WENT
INTO BUSINESS TOGETHER, YOU WERE
EXPECTING A LEGITIMATE PARTNER.
LUKE: I NEVER BELIEVED IT.
BESIDES, YOU TOLD ME --
SONNY: YEAH?
LUKE: THE COFFEE WAREHOUSE
WAS LEGIT.
THAT'S ALL I NEED TO KNOW.
SONNY: AND WHERE IS THAT NOW?
UP IN ASHES BECAUSE MORENO IS
A PEST, AND I NEED PEST
REPELLENT, IF YOU KNOW WHAT I'M
SAYING.
LUKE: SO YOU'RE GOING TO LET
ONE LITTLE WAREHOUSE FIRE PULL
YOU INTO A LIFE OF CRIME?
SONNY: WHAT IF, TO KEEP
THE WAREHOUSE STANDING,
HE HAS TO BE REMOVED?
LUKE: DO IT.
SONNY: YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY
ABOUT A VACUUM.
LUKE: SO WHAT'S GOING
TO HAPPEN?
I'M GOING TO HEAR SOME SUCKING
SOUND AND SUDDENLY YOU'RE
STANDING IN MORENO'S SHOES?
SONNY: I DON'T SEE ANY OTHER
WAY TO GO.
CAN I GET ANOTHER DRINK?
LUKE: WELL, IF THERE'S
NO OTHER WAY TO GO, GO THAT WAY.
I MEAN, IT'S NOT SUCH A BAD IDEA
AFTER ALL, IS IT?
OF COURSE, YOU COULD JUST
SAY NO.
SONNY: YEAH, I COULD SAY
NO AND WALK AWAY, AND I CAN DO
THE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE.
BUT --
THE OLD TIES ARE STILL THERE.
YOU CAN BREAK YOUR WORD,
BUT YOU CAN'T BREAK THOSE.
[MAN SINGING IN ITALIAN]
KATHERINE: THIS PLACE IS
QUITE A FIND.
NIKOLAS: I HAVE LUCKY
TO THANK FOR THAT.
YOU KNOW, LITTLE DID I THINK
ABOUT ALL THE TIMES I USED
TO PICK UP ROBIN HERE AND DROP
HER OFF.
KATHERINE: THAT'S RIGHT.
YOU KNEW YOUR WAY.
HAVE YOU HEARD FROM HER?
I HAVEN'T.
NIKOLAS: WELL, SHE SENT ME
A FUNNY LITTLE CARTOON
FROM "LE MONDE."
IT'S ABOUT PARISIAN STUDENTS.
IT WOULDN'T TRANSLATE TOO WELL.
KATHERINE: YOU KNOW WHAT'S
GOING TO BE FUN?
FURNISHING THIS PLACE.
I ASSUME YOU DIDN'T BRING
ANYTHING FROM WYNDEMERE.
NIKOLAS: NO. NO.
KATHERINE: WELL, I KNOW SOME
WONDERFUL DESIGNERS.
I MEAN, NOT THAT I THINK THAT
WE WOULD NEED ONE OR ANYTHING.
NIKOLAS: NO, I DON'T THINK
I WILL.
KATHERINE: I HAVE A GREAT
IDEA.
WHY DON'T WE MAKE A TRIP
TO NEW YORK OR LONDON OR MILAN?
WE COULD GO ANTIQUING
OR SOMETHING.
OH, WHAT AM I SAYING?
NOT ANTIQUES FOR YOU.
HOW ABOUT THE CUTTING-EDGE
SHOWROOMS?
NIKOLAS: "CUTTING EDGE"?
IT'S JUST A COTTAGE
IN THE WOODS.
KATHERINE: YOU SAYING
YOU DON'T WANT TO TAKE A TRIP
WITH ME?
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
KATHERINE: SHOULD I HIDE
OR SOMETHING?
NIKOLAS: NO.
NIKOLAS: HEY.
ELIZABETH: WHAT DO YOU THINK?
SEE?
I TOLD YOU I HAD A GOOD EYE
FOR THESE THINGS.
NIKOLAS: VERY COOL.
ELIZABETH: YOUR VERY FIRST
LAMP.
NOW ALL YOU NEED IS A HOUSEFUL
OF FURNITURE TO GO WITH IT.
KATHERINE: HELLO.
JASON: YOU NEED TO GET SOME
SLEEP.
[MICHAEL BABBLES]
JASON: WHAT ARE YOU POINTING
AT OVER THERE?
HUH?
YOU TIRED?
YEAH.
YOU NEED TO GET SOME SLEEP, KID.
YOU GET MAD LIKE THIS,
YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE YOURSELF
SICK.
MICHAEL: AH.
JASON: AH.
AH.
CAN I HAVE ONE?
MICHAEL: AH.
JASON: ALL RIGHT.
LET'S CHECK THIS OUT OVER HERE.
[MICHAEL BABBLES]
JASON: YEAH, THAT'S
AN ELEPHANT.
ELEPHANT.
YEAH.
CAN YOU LOOK OUT THE WINDOW?
HMM?
YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A LOT
OF ROOM TO PLAY OUTDOORS WHEN IT
GETS WARM.
[MICHAEL BABBLES]
JASON: THIS?
ELEPHANT.
YOU REMEMBER WE PLAYED OUTDOORS
AT THE PARK?
IT'S LIKE A PARK.
AND IT'S BIGGER THAN A PARK.
IT'S MORE OF A PARK THAN A PARK.
[MICHAEL BABBLES]
JASON: YEAH.
AND LOOK.
LOOK AT THIS WHOLE ROOM.
IT'S ALL YOURS.
ALL THESE TOYS.
THAT'S A HORSE.
THIS IS ALL YOURS, MICHAEL.
MICHAEL: DA-DA.
JASON: I KNOW WHY
YOU HATE IT.
I KNOW WHY BECAUSE I DID, TOO.
EDWARD: THIS IS A VERY BAD
PRECEDENT, A.J.
A.J.: ISN'T THAT WHAT I TRIED
TO TELL YOU?
MONICA: MAYBE WE SHOULD LOOK
AT WHAT THE SITUATION IS
TELLING US.
A.J.: WHICH IS WHAT,
IN YOUR MIND?
THAT I AM DOOMED TO BE A FAILURE
AS A PARENT?
MONICA: THAT MICHAEL NEEDS
BOTH YOU AND YOUR BROTHER
IN HIS LIFE.
THAT'S WHAT I MEANT ABOUT
OPPORTUNITY, A.J.
JASON IS HERE.
IF FOR MICHAEL'S SAKE,
CAN'T YOU PUT ASIDE
YOUR DIFFERENCES?
A.J.: I HAVE TO GIVE
YOU CREDIT, MOM.
THIS TIME YOU'RE NOT STABBING ME
IN THE BACK.
YOU'RE LOOKING ME IN THE EYE
AND GOING STRAIGHT FOR MY HEART.
MONICA: A.J. --
A.J.: IT'S NOT ENOUGH
TO DIGNIFY THE LIE WITH POLITE
EXPRESSION, THE WAY WE SAY THAT
JASON RAISED MICHAEL INSTEAD
OF KEPT HIM PRISONER.
BUT NOW WE HAVE TO
INSTITUTIONALIZE IT,
REWARD THE LIE BY GIVING JASON
A SPECIAL PLACE OF HONOR
IN MY SON'S LIFE.
YOU KNOW, I HAVE LIVED
WITH THE INTOLERABLE BEFORE,
THANKS TO YOU PEOPLE, MY LOVING
FAMILY, BUT I WON'T LIVE
WITH THAT.
EMILY: YOU HATE JASON.
SO WHAT?
YOU ALSO SAY YOU LOVE MICHAEL.
WHY CAN'T YOU THINK ABOUT
WHAT HE NEEDS?
A.J.: DOES ANYONE UNDERSTAND
A WORD I'M SAYING?
JASON IS NOT THE SOLUTION.
HE'S THE REASON MICHAEL IS
CRYING.
HE'S THE REASON WHY MICHAEL IS
SO TERRIFIED AROUND HIS OWN
FAMILY.
JASON DID THIS TO MICHAEL,
NOT ME.
IT HURTS.
IT'S PAINFUL TO WITNESS.
BUT THIS IS THE WAY IT'S GOING
TO BE UNTIL I'M NO LONGER
A STRANGER TO MY OWN SON.
EDWARD: DON'T EVEN THINK
OF LEAVING THIS HOUSE WITH THAT
CHILD.
JASON: MICHAEL, THESE ARE
THE QUARTERMAINES.
WELL, ACTUALLY, NED'S NOT HERE.
HE'S SMART.
HE LIVES IN THAT LITTLE HOUSE
BY THE FRONT GATES.
BUT THESE ARE THE REST OF THEM.
THERE WAS GOING TO BE A DAY
I TOLD YOU ABOUT THEM.
I WISH IT DIDN'T HAVE
TO BE TODAY,
BUT I GUESS IT DOES.
NOW, YOU ALREADY KNOW EMILY, OK?
EMILY: HI, SWEETIE.
JASON: SHE'S THE ONE WHO GOES
TO CHURCH WITH US, AND SHE'S
THE ONE WHO TELLS THE TRUTH
THE MOST.
SHE'S THE ONE WHO I TRUST
TO WATCH OVER YOU IF YOUR MOMMY
AND I CAN'T.
THAT'S WHY SHE'S YOUR GODMOTHER.
EDWARD: WELL, I GO TO CHURCH.
WHAT'S THAT GOT TO DO
WITH ANYTHING?
JASON: OK.
NOW, THIS
IS YOUR GREAT-GRANDMOTHER LILA.
LILA: HELLO, MY LITTLE
DARLING.
OH, SEEING YOU HAPPY MEANS
THE WORLD TO ME.
JASON: DON'T YOU REMEMBER,
WE SPENT NEW YEAR'S EVE
WITH HER?
SHE LIKES YOU A LOT, AND SHE'LL
WATCH OUT FOR YOU, TOO.
SOMETIMES SHE GETS PUSHED
AROUND, BUT SOMETIMES SHE PUSHES
BACK, AND THAT'S WHY I'M HERE.
OK.
OH, YOU'RE GETTING HEAVY, BUDDY.
AND THIS --
THIS IS MY MOTHER.
YOU KNOW HOW BOBBIE IS CARLY'S
MOM?
SHE LOVES YOU LIKE BOBBIE DOES,
AND MONICA LOVES ME KIND OF LIKE
CARLY DOES.
ALL RIGHT, COME ON.
AND OVER THERE, THAT'S THE OLD
MAN.
YOU PROBABLY HAVE HIM FIGURED
OUT BY NOW.
A.J.: IT'S ONLY FOR MICHAEL'S
SAKE I DON'T GRAB YOU
BY THE THROAT AND PUT AN END
TO THIS PERFORMANCE.
JASON: AND THIS IS A.J.
AND HE'S NEVER GOING TO HURT
YOU.
A.J.: AND UNCLE JASON HERE --
YOUR UNCLE JASON IS A VERY BAD
MAN.
HE ROBS AND KILLS PEOPLE
FOR A LIVING.
AND EVERYONE HERE THINKS HE'S
GREAT BECAUSE HE HASN'T KILLED
YOU YET.
HE HASN'T ROBBED YOU,
EITHER, BUT HE STOLE YOU
BEFORE YOU WERE EVEN BORN.
HE LIKES TO SPEAK TO
YOU AS AN EQUAL, BUT YOU'RE NOT
HIS EQUAL.
MENTALLY YOU'RE LIGHT-YEARS
AHEAD OF HIM.
AND AFTER TONIGHT,
HE'LL NEVER SEE YOU AGAIN
IF I HAVE ANYTHING TO DO
WITH IT.
JASON: HE'S SO TIRED.
CARLY: I KNOW.
JASON: IT'S LIKE HE'S AFRAID
TO SLEEP.
CARLY: YEAH.
JASON: SO, CAN YOU COME
UPSTAIRS WITH ME WHILE I READ
TO HIM?
THAT'LL SEEM NORMAL TO HIM.
CARLY: FINE. YEAH.
WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GET THIS
THING RESOLVED, OK.
JASON: COME ON, BOY.
OH, YEAH.
NIKOLAS: LIZ AND LUCKY HAVE
BEEN LIKE MY BIG BROTHER
AND SISTER THROUGH ALL THIS,
YOU KNOW.
WHAT DO I KNOW.
ALL I'VE EVER BEEN IS FAKE
ROYALTY.
KATHERINE: THAT'S SWEET.
ELIZABETH: ACTUALLY,
IT'S COMPLETELY SELFISH.
I LOVE TO SHOP.
NIKOLAS: WELL, YOU TWO HAVE
THAT IN COMMON.
KATHERINE: WHAT,
SHOPPING OR SELFISHNESS?
NIKOLAS: SHE'S KIDDING.
RIGHT?
ELIZABETH: I LOVE TO POKE
MY HEAD AROUND GARAGE SALES AND,
YOU KNOW, FLEA MARKETS,
STUFF LIKE THAT.
THE THINGS YOU FIND HAVE SO MUCH
MORE CHARACTER THAN UPSCALE
BORING STUFF THAT'S IMPORTED
FROM -- I DON'T KNOW -- LIKE,
EUROPE OR SOMEWHERE.
NO OFFENSE TO EUROPE
OR ANYTHING.
NIKOLAS: NO.
ELIZABETH: I JUST CAME
BY TO DROP OFF THIS LAMP, SO --
NIKOLAS: WAIT, WAIT.
CAN I -- CAN I --
I DON'T KNOW -- WHAT DO I HAVE?
COFFEE?
YOU WANT SOME COFFEE?
ELIZABETH: OH, NO, THANKS.
BUT IF I HURRY, I CAN CATCH
A BUS BACK.
NIKOLAS: YOU CAME ALL THIS
WAY ON THE BUS WITH THAT?
ELIZABETH: YEAH, AND I COULD
HAVE SOLD IT ON THE BUS AND MADE
A PROFIT.
NIKOLAS: WELL, YOU CAN'T
LEAVE.
I MEAN, I AT LEAST OWE
YOU A RIDE BACK INTO TOWN.
ELIZABETH: NO, DON'T. DON'T.
YOU'RE GOING TO MAKE ME FEEL
BAD.
KATHERINE: YOU KNOW,
ELIZABETH, I COULD GIVE
YOU A RIDE INTO TOWN.
ELIZABETH: OH, NO, NO, NO.
PLEASE, YOU GUYS.
HONESTLY, I SHOULD HAVE CALLED
FIRST.
I --
KATHERINE: NO, NO, REALLY.
I WAS -- I WAS LEAVING ANYWAY.
I JUST CAME TO BRING NIKOLAS
SOME GOODIES AND TO SEE HIS NEW
PLACE.
BESIDES, I'M SURE YOUR
GRANDMOTHER WOULDN'T WANT
YOU RIDING ON THE BUS
IN THE DARK.
ELIZABETH: ACTUALLY,
SHE DOESN'T WORRY THAT MUCH
ANYMORE.
AND BESIDES, EMILY AND I TAKE
THE BUS EVERYWHERE.
NIKOLAS: I'LL GIVE HER A RIDE
HOME, KATHERINE, OK?
KATHERINE: NIKOLAS --
NIKOLAS: NO, REALLY.
KATHERINE: OK, THEN,
GOOD NIGHT.
SEE YOU TOMORROW.
NIKOLAS: SEE YOU TOMORROW.
ELIZABETH: NIGHT.
KATHERINE: GOOD NIGHT.
ELIZABETH: I AM SO SORRY.
NIKOLAS: IT'S -- IT'S FINE.
IT'S -- IT'S FINE.
ELIZABETH: WELL, DO YOU WANT
TO GET YOUR JACKET?
NIKOLAS: YOU'RE NOT GOING
TO SHOW ME WHERE MY LAMP GOES?
WELL, YOU ARE MY DECORATOR.
ISN'T THAT YOUR JOB?
LAURA: THANK YOU.
THAT WAS MAGNIFICENT.
THE MUSIC, THE SPECTACLE,
THE PASSION,
THE SACRIFICE.
STEFAN: WELL, OPERA STRIKES
SOME PEOPLE -- OUR SON AMONG
THEM, APPARENTLY --
AS UNREALISTIC.
LAURA: BUT IT ISN'T.
I MEAN, I'VE FELT ALL OF THOSE
THINGS.
WHO HASN'T?
IT'S JUST THAT HERE THEY MAKE IT
LOOK AND SOUND AS IMPORTANT
AS IT FEELS INSIDE.
I LOVED IT.
THANK YOU FOR BRINGING ME.
STEFAN: THE PLEASURE WAS ALL
MINE.
LUKE: YOU KNOW, SON,
YOU'RE ABOUT AS GOOD A FRIEND
AS A MAN COULD HAVE.
YOU'RE LOYAL, SMART,
GOOD COMPANY,
NO JUDGMENTS.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR
PROBLEM IS?
SONNY: I TRY TO KEEP THAT
TO MYSELF.
LUKE: YOUR PROBLEM IS YOU'RE
A SUCKER FOR FATE.
IT'S LIKE SINCE YOU WERE 5 YEARS
OLD YOU'VE BEEN WALKING AROUND
FEELING DOOMED.
YOU KNOW, YOU'RE LIKE SOME
DEPRESSED CHARACTER IN AN OLD
VIKING MOVIE, MAN.
REALLY.
YOU HEAR THUNDER, AND YOU THINK,
"THE GODS ARE ANGRY WITH ME"
INSTEAD OF "WHERE DID I PUT
MY UMBRELLA?"
YOU THINK THAT I WOULD GIVE UP
A PERFECT PARTNERSHIP
BECAUSE MORENO AIN'T THROUGH
WITH YOU?
TO HELL WITH MORENO.
YOU KNOW, SOME PEOPLE,
UNLIKE YOU AND ME, CAN ACTUALLY
MOVE ON.
YOU KNOW WHY YOU THINK YOU CAN'T
WALK AWAY?
BECAUSE YOU NEVER HAVE, MAN.
SONNY: AND YOUR ADVICE
WOULD BE?
LUKE: YOU WANT TO WALK AWAY,
YOU CAN DO IT.
YOU WANT TO MAKE A BREAK,
YOU CAN DO IT.
YOU JUST HAVE TO EMPTY
YOUR POCKETS, EMPTY YOUR HEAD,
AND TAKE NOTHING WITH YOU EXCEPT
YOUR COMB AND YOUR DRIVER'S
LICENSE.
SONNY: THANKS FOR
YOUR ADVICE.
AND DON'T FORGET THE TOOTHBRUSH.
LUKE: WISE GUY.
CARLY: FINALLY.
JASON: YOU NEED TO GET HIM
A NEW BOOK.
CARLY: A.J. GOT HIM LOTS
OF NEW BOOKS.
JASON: NO, I'M TALKING ABOUT
A BOOK WITH SOMETHING REAL IN IT
YOU CAN'T JUST FINISH IN FIVE
MINUTES.
CARLY: THAT'S FOR YOU,
BY THE WAY.
YOUR GRANDMOTHER HAD IT SENT
OUT.
JASON: THE COOK HERE IS GOOD.
CARLY: THANK YOU, JASE.
JASON: YOU LISTEN TO ME.
YOU HAVE TO DO FOR MICHAEL
WHAT I CAN'T.
YOU HAVE TO BE ME
AND YOU BOTH TO HIM.
NOW, LOOK, I KNOW YOU THINK IT'S
HARD, I KNOW YOU THINK YOU CAN'T
DO IT, BUT YOU CAN.
CARLY: WELL, IT DIDN'T WORK
WHEN YOU WEREN'T HERE, OK?
I TRIED EVERYTHING.
JASON: BECAUSE YOU WERE
AFRAID.
YOU WERE AFRAID, AND HE KNOWS
WHEN YOU'RE AFRAID BECAUSE BEING
AFRAID IS CONTAGIOUS.
CARLY: YEAH, THAT'S
THE TRUTH.
JASON: RIGHT? I KNOW.
IT PASSES FROM A.J. TO
YOU TO MICHAEL, AND HE GETS
SCARED.
DON'T LET IT HAPPEN.
KICK EVERYBODY OUT OF
THE ROOM, OK?
AND YOU JUST HOLD HIM
AND YOU TELL HIM THINGS.
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU TELL
HIM -- DUMB THINGS -- HE DOES
NOT CARE AS LONG AS IT'S
THE SOUND OF YOU BEING HIS MOM
AND LOVING HIM.
JASON: OK?
CARLY: YEAH.
JASON: YOU PROMISE ME?
CARLY: I PROMISE.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
I AM
SO WAY OUT OF MY LEAGUE HERE,
JASON.
YOU KNOW, I MUST HAVE BEEN CRAZY
TO THINK THAT I COULD DEAL
WITH THESE PEOPLE AND HANDLE
THEM.
I MEAN, THEY HAVE THEIR DAGGERS
OUT ALL OF THE TIME.
EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM IS LIKE
THIS OPEN WOUND.
LAURA: THANK YOU
FOR A WONDERFUL EVENING.
IT'S STRANGE, ISN'T IT?
WE HAVE A CHILD TOGETHER,
AND YET HERE WE ARE ON OUR FIRST
DATE.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO COME INSIDE
FOR A FEW MINUTES FOR A CUP
OF COFFEE OR A COGNAC?
STEFAN: UM --
LAURA: ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?
WHAT'S THE MATTER?
STEFAN: I'M --
I'M TRYING TO DECIDE
IF THIS IS THE HAPPIEST MOMENT
OF MY LIFE.
AND WHY IT SHOULD COME TO ME NOW
IN THIS PLACE,
ON THIS PORCH.
LUKE: SO,
LUCAS LORENZO,
WHAT'S OUT THERE?
NIKOLAS: HA.
ELIZABETH: AH.
I THINK THIS IS IT.
NIKOLAS: THE PERFECT SPOT?
ELIZABETH: YEAH, THE PERFECT
SPOT.
OH, BY THE WAY, I RECRUITED
LUCKY AND EMILY FOR A SHOPPING
EXPEDITION TOMORROW.
YOU KNOW HOW WE LOVE TO WATCH
YOU SPEND MONEY.
AND IT MAKES LUCKY SO -- JUST
NONCHALANT.
NIKOLAS: WELL, THAT'S ONE WAY
TO PUT IT.
ELIZABETH: BUT, REALLY,
IT WAS KIND OF OUTRAGEOUS OF ME
TO PUT THIS WHOLE THING TOGETHER
WITHOUT CONSULTING YOU FIRST.
SO IF YOU DON'T WANT TO DO IT
TOMORROW, WE CAN JUST DO IT
ANOTHER TIME.
NIKOLAS: WAIT, WAIT.
WAIT, DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS
TO ME TO HAVE YOU TAKE ME
AND MY FRIENDSHIP FOR GRANTED?
ELIZABETH: WELL, THAT SOUNDS
TERRIBLE.
NIKOLAS: NO, IT'S NOT.
NOT TO ME.
BEFORE YOU GUYS, PEOPLE ASKED
MY PERMISSION FOR
EVERYTHING, OK?
IT WAS LIKE THEY COULDN'T BE
SURE -- LIKE THEY COULDN'T COUNT
ON ME.
BUT YOU DID.
AND I WANT YOU TO.
I WANT YOU AND LUCKY AND EMILY
TO FEEL FREE TO COME AND GO HERE
ANYTIME YOU WANT.
ELIZABETH: WOW.
NIKOLAS: SOMETIMES THE DOOR
MAY BE LOCKED WHEN YOU GET HERE,
BUT IT WILL NEVER STAY
LOCKED, OK?
EMILY: YOU KNOW WHAT WE'RE
DOING, DON'T YOU?
I MEAN, WE'RE SITTING AROUND,
WAITING FOR MICHAEL TO CRY.
AND JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER
TIMES, THERE WON'T BE ANYTHING
THAT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT.
A.J.: HE'S WITH HIS MOTHER
NOW.
HE'LL BE FINE.
EMILY: RIGHT.
CARLY: YOU GAVE THEM HELL,
LITTLE BOY.
GOOD FOR YOU.
BUT NOW LET ME TAKE OVER, OK?

>> ON THE NEXT "GENERAL HOSPITAL.

ALAN: MONICA'S BEEN GENTLY
TRYING TO PERSUADE ME TO COME
HOME.
TAMMY: AND WHAT'S
THE PROBLEM?
MAC: JASON'S WAREHOUSE
COULDN'T HAVE BURNED DOWN
AT A MORE CONVENIENT TIME,
COULD IT?
A.J.: I DON'T KNOW.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
SONNY: FIND OUT ANYTHING?
JASON: WE'RE IN BUSINESS.
