[KNOCK ON DOOR]
LUKE: COME IN.
FELICIA: TONY?
LUKE: NO, LUKE.
IT'S CUSTOMARY TO GREET THE GUY
SITTING IN THE ROOM.
FELICIA: HELLO, LUKE.
LUKE: HI.
FELICIA: HE SAID THAT
HE LOOKED AT THE SKULLS AND THAT
HE WAS BRINGING THEM BACK RIGHT
AWAY?
LUKE: YES.
AND BELIEVE ME, I'M AS ANXIOUS
TO SEE THOSE LITTLE BONEHEADS
AS YOU ARE.
IT'S NICE TO HAVE SOMETHING
TO BUTT AGAINST, YOU KNOW?
FELICIA: MM-HMM.
LAST NIGHT I HAD THIS TERRIBLE
DREAM THAT THERE WERE TWO MEN
AT THE FOOT OF MY BED,
EDWARD'S FATHER AND THAT MAN
WHO'S -- OR WHOEVER IT IS THAT'S
SPENDING ETERNITY WITH HIM
IN THAT CRYPT.
THEY WANTED THEIR HEADS BACK.
"WE WANT OUR HEADS BACK.
WE WANT OUR HEADS BACK.
BACK.
BACK."
LUKE: WHY?
DID THEY SAY?
FELICIA: I WAS THRASHING
AROUND SO MUCH IN THAT BED,
I PUSHED MAC OUT AND
ONTO THE FLOOR.
LUKE: OH, I'M SURE THAT'S NOT
THE FIRST TIME THAT HAPPENED.
FELICIA: I'M SO SERIOUS ABOUT
THIS.
I WANT TO PUT THOSE SKULLS BACK
WITH THEIR REMAINS AND I WANT
TO STOP LYING TO MY HUSBAND
AND I WANT TO JUST STOP
GENERALLY ACTING LIKE
A CRIMINAL.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
FELICIA: OH, THANK GOODNESS.
COME ON IN.
TONY: HELLO.
LUKE: HOW'D THE BOYS ENJOY
THEIR FIELD TRIP?
TONY: OH, NO WORSE
FOR THE WEAR.
FELICIA: I'M SURE YOU DON'T
HAVE ANYTHING TO REPORT
BECAUSE THERE PROBABLY ISN'T
ANYTHING TO REPORT.
TONY: I WOULDN'T SAY THAT.

JAX: THIS IS FINE.
MAITRE D': OH.
JAX: IT'S MORE CONSPICUOUS.
ALEXIS: WHAT IF AUNT GERTRUDE
DOESN'T SHOW UP FOR HER DINNER
RESERVATION?
JAX: SIT.
ALEXIS: CAN I JUST ASK
YOU ONE MORE QUESTION?
DO YOU HAVE TO SAY THAT I'M
MARRYING YOU FOR YOUR MONEY?
JAX: WHY?
WHAT'S WRONG WITH IT?
ALEXIS: I JUST WOULDN'T DO
THAT.
JAX: OH, BUT GERTRUDE DOESN'T
KNOW THAT.
ALEXIS: BUT THIS IS
SO HACKNEYED.
I MEAN, HOW MUCH MONEY DO
YOU REALLY HAVE?
OK, A FORTUNE.
BUT IT'S NOT AS MUCH AS YOU USED
TO HAVE.
WHY CAN'T YOU SAY THAT YOU'RE
MARRYING ME FOR MY MONEY?
EVERYONE KNOWS YOU WERE GOING
AFTER THE CASSADINE FORTUNE.
JAX: ALEXIS, MAKE UP
YOUR MIND.
AM I MARRYING YOU FOR YOUR NAME,
YOUR SOCIAL PROFILE,
OR YOUR PROFESSIONAL SAVVY?
IT DOESN'T MATTER.
JUST PICK ONE OR TWO.
ALEXIS: IF WE SAY LOOKS
AND CHARM, WILL PEOPLE JUST
LAUGH?
JAX: LOOKS AND CHARM IT IS.
NEVER MIND HOW SHALLOW IT WILL
MAKE ME LOOK.
ALEXIS: AND I CAN SAY THAT
I MARRIED YOU FOR YOUR MONEY,
ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT YOU WERE
A SCHEMING, EGOTISTICAL BORE.
JAX: NO, THAT'LL NEVER FLY.
ALEXIS: THAT YOU'RE SCHEMING
AND EGOTISTICAL?
JAX: NO ONE'S GOING
TO BELIEVE I'M A BORE.
ALEXIS: SHALL I ASK
FOR A SHOW OF HANDS?
JAX: YEAH.
LOOK, WHY CAN'T WE JUST STICK
WITH WHAT WE CAME UP
WITH FIRST -- TWO PEOPLE WHO
FELL IN LOVE ON A DESERT
ISLAND --
MINUS THE ISLAND.
AND THE PRESSURES OF DAY-TO-DAY
LIFE BACK IN SOCIETY JUST DROVE
US APART.
ALEXIS: THAT DOES HAVE
A TRIED AND TRUE RING TO IT.
JAX: I MEAN, GERTRUDE BOUGHT
THE WEDDING, SO SHE'LL BUY
THE DESERT ISLAND AND
THE ANNULMENT.
ALEXIS: BUT DID SHE BUY
THE WEDDING?
JAX: WE'RE GOING TO HAVE
TO MAKE IT LOOK REALISTIC,
LIKE WE'RE BREAKING UP LIKE
REAL, LIVE MARRIED COUPLES.
NO HOLDS BARRED.
TO MY WHIRLWIND WIFE.
NONE OF THE AWFUL THINGS I'M
ABOUT TO SAY ABOUT YOU ARE
REMOTELY TRUE.
ALEXIS: AND I CAN HONESTLY
SAY THAT THERE'S NO ONE I'D
RATHER BE DIVORCING THAN YOU.
JAX: CHEERS.

CHLOE: SOMETHING WRONG
WITH YOUR WATCH, DEAR?
NED: YES, HONEYBUN.
IT SAYS HERE THAT WE'RE
10 MINUTES LATE TO MEET JAX
AND ALEXIS.
CHLOE: YOU MIGHT WANT TO TAKE
UP KNITTING OR ZEN.
WHILE YOU'RE MARRIED TO ME,
YOU'RE GOING TO BE LATE
FOR EVERHING.
NED: AH.
LILA: AND HOW LONG CAN
WE EXPECT THAT TO BE?
I GATHER YOU'RE RUNNING LATE,
BUT I THINK IT'S PAST TIME THAT
YOU TOLD ME THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS
ENGAGEMENT.

JASON: CARLY.
CARLY: SOMETHING HAPPEN?
HI.
JASON: NOT REALLY.
CARLY: WHAT ARE YOU DOING
HERE?
JASON: I WAS LOOKING FOR YOU.
CARLY: WELL, NOW I KNOW
SOMETHING'S WRONG.
SOMEBODY HURT YOU?
ROBIN OR SONNY?
JASON: I HAVE TO BREAK
MY PROMISE.
CARLY: WELL, EXCUSE ME
FOR BEING SKEPTICAL,
BUT YOU DON'T MAKE ENOUGH
PROMISES TO BREAK.
ONLY OUTRIGHT PROMISE I EVER
REMEMBER YOU MAKING WAS THAT
YOU'D WAIT FOR ME AND MICHAEL.

HANNAH: NO WONDER NO ONE WILL
LET YOU DRIVE.
YOU ARE A MANIAC.
SONNY: ONLY ON THE LAKE.
WHO WAS THE ONE IN THE LIFE
JACKET TELLING ME TO GO FASTER?
HANNAH: FALSE SENSE
OF SECURITY, ALWAYS MY DOWNFALL.
BUT ANYWAYS, I'D BETTER GET
DRESSED.
I GOT TO GET READY FOR WORK
AND PUT A COMB THROUGH MY HAIR.
IT PROBABLY LOOKS LIKE A RAT'S
NEST.
SONNY: NO, NO.
I THINK IT LOOKS NICE,
ESPECIALLY IF I DO THIS.
SEE THAT?
YEAH.
YOU WANT ME TO GIVE YOU A RIDE
TO LUKE'S?
HANNAH: ONLY IF YOU'RE NOT
DRIVING.
SONNY: HEY, TAMMY.
TAMMY: SONNY.
OH, MY GOODNESS.
I THINK I HAVE TO GO
IN THE KITCHEN AND CALL
"RIPLEY'S BELIEVE IT OR NOT,"
BECAUSE I THINK YOUR CLOTHES ARE
ACTUALLY A LITTLE BIT RUMPLED.
SONNY: REALLY?
WHERE? WHERE?
I DON'T SEE.
TAMMY: RELAX, SONNY.
ACTUALLY, RELAXED IS A VERY GOOD
LOOK FOR YOU.
FORGET ABOUT IT.
SONNY, THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR SENDING THE WINDOW GUYS.
THE PLACE LOOKS MUCH BETTER.
THEY WERE PUNCTUAL, ON TIME.
THEY DID A GREAT JOB.
THANK YOU.
SONNY: YOU KNOW WHAT?
I SHOULD BE THANKING
YOU BECAUSE I KNOW THAT --
I KNOW THE SITUATION GOT
A LITTLE EXTREME.
BUT --
TAMMY: "BUT"? WAIT A SECOND.
SONNY: YOU KEPT YOUR COOL,
AND I APPRECIATE THAT.
TAMMY: WELL, WAKING UP
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
TO THE SOUND OF BREAKING GLASS
IS NOT MY IDEA OF PARADISE,
BUT I FIGURED THINGS WERE GOING
TO COME TO A HEAD, YOU KNOW,
WITH THIS GUY THAT WAS DOGGING
HANNAH.
SONNY: WHAT, HE'D BEEN AROUND
BEFORE?
TAMMY: LIKE TWO, THREE TIMES.
I WAS STARTING TO THINK THAT
SHE MIGHT BE IN SOME TROUBLE.

TAMMY: SO DID HANNAH EVER
TELL YOU ANYTHING ABOUT
THIS GUY?
SONNY: SHE GOT PRETTY
RATTLED, BUT I THOUGHT I'D LEAVE
WELL ENOUGH ALONE.
WHY?
WHAT MADE YOU THINK THERE MIGHT
BE SOME TROUBLE?
TAMMY: WELL, NOTHING REALLY.
I JUST --
I JUST REMEMBER SEEING THE GUY,
YOU KNOW, STOPPING HER EVERY NOW
AND THEN ON HER WAY IN AT NIGHT.
SONNY: YOU DIDN'T ASK HER?
YOU DIDN'T THINK OF CALLING
THE COPS?
TAMMY: NO, SONNY, I DIDN'T.
SHE SEEMED TO KNOW THE GUY.
I --
SONNY: RIGHT.
TAMMY: I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS
ANY OF MY BUSINESS.
ANYWAY, LISTEN, I'M ON MY WAY
TO A MEETING OVER AT
THE RIVERFRONT MERCHANTS
ASSOCIATION.
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, SONNY?
I'M A MERCHANT.
SONNY: WOW.
TAMMY: ANYWAY, PENNY'S HERE.
IF YOU NEED ANYTHING, ASK HER.
ALL RIGHT, SWEETIE?
SONNY: OK, THANKS, TAMMY.
TAMMY: BYE.
SONNY: THIS THE FIRST TIME
YOU'VE SEEN DR. BRADBURN SINCE,
YOU KNOW, YOU LEFT?
HANNAH: I HAVEN'T BEEN BACK.
I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY HE'S HERE.
HANNAH: BETTER?
SONNY: I LIKED THE BEFORE
AND I LIKE THE AFTER.
HANNAH: WELL, I DON'T
ACTUALLY HAVE TO PUNCH
IN FOR ANOTHER HOUR AT WORK,
SO IF YOU WANT TO GIVE ME A RIDE
NOW, I'LL BE WAY TOO EARLY.
SONNY: WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT?
WHY DON'T YOU JUST LET ME BUY
YOU DINNER, YOU KNOW,
EASE YOUR NERVES A LITTLE BIT
FROM THE LAKE, ALL RIGHT?
HANNAH: I'M SO HUNGRY,
I COULD EAT A HORSE.
SONNY: WELL, THAT'S WHAT
THEY'RE SELLING AT LUKE'S.
THAT'S WHAT HE'S SERVING.
HANNAH: COME ON, LET'S EAT
OUT HERE.
SONNY: ALL RIGHT.
HANNAH: OK.
TONY: SO THIS SKULL COMES
FROM AN ADULT MALE.
IT'S PROBABLY 60 YEARS OLD.
LUKE: THIS ONE?
TONY: RIGHT.
AND I CAN'T TELL YOU THE CAUSE
OF DEATH.
THERE'S DEFINITELY NO SKULL
TRAUMA OR SKULL FRACTURE HERE.
IT'S ACTUALLY IN VERY GOOD
SHAPE.
LUKE: WELL, WE KNOW
THE QUARTERMAINES ARE
HARDHEADED.
WHAT ABOUT THIS ONE?
TONY: ANOTHER ADULT MALE.
YOUNGER, POSSIBLY EARLY
TO MID 20'S.
BUT TAKE A LOOK AT THAT.
LUKE: RIGHT. THAT.
I NOTICED THAT.
THAT'S AN INDENTATION, ISN'T IT?
TONY: YES, A BLOW TO THE HEAD
THAT PERFORATED THE SKULL.
LUKE: AND THERE'S NO WAY THAT
COULD'VE HAPPENED WHEN I WAS
PRACTICING MY BOWLING?
FELICIA: HE DIDN'T REALLY
DO THAT.
HE JUST WANTS ME TO GRAB
HIS NECK AND SQUEEZE IT.
LUKE: WELL --
TONY: WELL, IT WOULDN'T
MATTER IF HE HAD.
THE DISCOLORATION, THE PRESENCE
OF PARTICULATE MATTER
AT THE APERTURE -- THESE ARE ALL
CHARACTERISTIC OF AN INJURY THAT
AFFECTS NOT JUST THE SKULL
BUT THE LIVING TISSUE BOTH
IN AND OUT, AND IT'S NOT
AN INJURY THAT'S HEALED,
OBVIOUSLY.
IT PROBABLY HAPPENED RIGHT
BEFORE THE TIME OF DEATH,
PROBABLY CAUSED THE DEATH.
LUKE: AND YOU THINK IT CAME
FROM, WHAT, A FALL, A PIANO
DROPPING ON HIS HEAD?
TONY: WELL, COULD'VE BEEN
POSSIBLY A FALL ON A SHARP ROCK,
BUT EVEN THEN, THE SIZE
AND THE POSITION OF THE BREAK
PRETTY MUCH PRECLUDE ANY KIND
OF ACCIDENTAL CAUSE THAT COMES
TO MIND -- UNLESS, OF COURSE,
HE JUST HAPPENED TO WALK
INTO THE PATH OF A FLYING
HAMMER.
LUKE: AND YOU WOULD THINK
THAT SOMEBODY WAS HOLDING THAT
HAMMER, RIGHT?
TONY: YEAH.
AND THAT'S ALL I CAN TELL YOU.
IN FACT, I DIDN'T EVEN TELL
YOU THAT BECAUSE I WASN'T HERE.
LUKE: NO, AND I DIDN'T CALL
YOU, SO HOW COULD YOU?
FELICIA: THANK YOU, TONY.
TONY: YOU KNOW, IF YOU HAD
TO BE OBSESSED WITH SOMETHING,
WHY COULDN'T IT HAVE BEEN
TAE-BO?
FELICIA: SORRY.
TONY: BYE.
LUKE: THANKS, TONE.
SO WOULD A LITTLE "I TOLD
YOU SO" BE PUSHING IT?
FELICIA: JUST PUT THEM BACK
IN THE BAG.
LET'S GO.
LUKE: WELL, OK, BUT I THOGHT
THEY LOOKED A LOT MORE LIFELIKE
IN MY SAFE.
FELICIA: VACATION IS OVER.
IT'S TIME TO GO HOME.

NED: JUST REGINALD HEADING UP
TO BED, I THINK.
LILA: WE HAVE A TERRIBLE
PROBLEM WITH EAVESDROPPERS
IN THIS HOUSE.
GO ON, DEAR.
CHLOE: IT'S NOT AS
IF GERTRUDE WASN'T WELL
PROVIDED FOR.
UNCLE HERBERT LEFT A HUGE SUM
AND SHE RECEIVED THE INTEREST
ON IT EVERY MONTH.
I COULD'VE LIVED VERY WELL
ON IT, AND I'M CERTAINLY NOT
FRUGAL.
BUT SOMEHOW SHE MANAGED TO GET
HER SOLICITORS TO BREAK
THE TRUST, AND I IMAGINE
SHE JUST SQUANDERED
THE PRINCIPAL.
SO NOW SHE'S NOT ONLY AFTER
MY INHERITANCE, BUT EVERYTHING
I'VE DONE WITH IT.
LILA: UNLESS YOU MARRY
AND STAY HAPPILY MARRIED
FOR A YEAR.
CHLOE: A CLAUSE I AM SURE
NO ONE WOULD THINK OF ENFORCING
IF IT WEREN'T FOR GERTRUDE.
UNCLE HERBERT NEVER SAID IT,
NEVER EVEN GAVE A HINT,
BUT I ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD
THE CLAUSE "HAPPILY MARRIED"
TO BE A REFLECTION OF HOW
UNHAPPY HE WAS MARRIED TO HER.
I THINK HE WANTED MORE FOR ME.
NED: WHICH SOMEDAY YOU WILL
HAVE.
UNFORTUNATELY, HERBERT'S
TIMETABLE DIDN'T TAKE
INTO ACCOUNT BUILDING A CAREER.
AND I'M SURE HE'D BE VERY PROUD
OF WHAT YOU'VE ACCOMPLISHED
AND PROBABLY A LITTLE
EMBARRASSED AT THE SITUATION
THAT HE PUT YOU IN.
CHLOE: I'M SO GLAD IT'S OUT
IN THE OPEN.
YOU HAVE BEEN SO GOOD TO ME,
AND I HAVE FELT SO AWFUL
DECEIVING YOU.
LILA: BUT I WASN'T DECEIVED.
IT'S CLEAR THAT YOU AND NED ARE
FOND OF EACH OTHER, BUT IT'S
BEEN EQUALLY CLEAR THAT IT'S NOT
LOVE.
JUST BE CAREFUL, BOTH OF YOU.
NED: THEN WE CAN KEEP THIS
BETWEEN US?
YOU'RE NOT GOING TO TELL
GRANDFATHER?
BECAUSE YOU KNOW HE WOULD RUN
STRAIGHT TO GERTRUDE JUST
TO THWART ME.

LILA: I'VE KEPT A GREAT MANY
SECRETS OVER THE YEARS
FOR THE SAKE OF THIS FAMILY.
I THINK I CAN MANAGE TO KEEP ONE
MORE.
CARLY: YOU KNOW,
YOUR GRANDMOTHER IS TEACHING ME
THINGS ABOUT ROSES --
WHAT THEIR NAMES ARE,
HOW TO CUT THEM, WHEN TO CUT
THEM, WHAT THEY EAT, AND WHAT
KIND OF BUGS THEY GET.
JASON: CARLY, THIS HAS
TO STOP.
CARLY: I NEVER THOUGHT THAT
I WOULD ENJOY SOMETHING LIKE
GARDENING, BUT IT'S KIND
OF GREAT BECAUSE I HAVE A GREAT
VIEW OF THE NURSERY FROM HERE
AND I CAN KEEP AN EYE OUT WHEN
MICHAEL TAKES HIS NAP.
AND THEN, YOU KNOW,
WHEN LETICIA'S READING TO HIM,
HE WAVES HIS LITTLE BOOK OUT
THE WINDOW AT ME.
JASON: LETICIA'S THE ONLY
CONSTANT THING IN HIS LIFE
RIGHT NOW.
CARLY: OK.
SO --
IT'S BAD.
I CAN SEE THAT.
WHY DON'T YOU JUST SAY IT?
JASON: THE OTHER PROMISE
I MADE
WAS TO PROTECT MICHAEL
FROM ANYTHING THAT COULD
HURT HIM.
AND I DIDN'T KNOW
THE THING THAT WOULD HURT HIM
MOST WOULD BE ME.

CARLY: WHO PUT THIS IDEA
IN YOUR HEAD?
YOU COULD NEVER HURT MICHAEL.
HE ADORES YOU.
JASON: I HAVE DONE THE WRONG
THING, AND
I HAVE TO UNDO IT.
CARLY: WHAT WRONG THING?
LET'S JUST STAY CALM HERE, OK?
WE CAN DISCUSS THIS.
JASON: I'M GIVING HIM UP.
CARLY: NO.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN, HUH?
WHATEVER IT MEANS, NO.
JASON: ANY LEGAL RIGHTS
I HAVE -- VISITATION, THE SHARED
CUSTODY TO MAKE DECISIONS
FOR MICHAEL.
CARLY: NO.
JASON: EVEN TO SEE HIM.
CARLY: YOU WOULD NEVER HURT
MICHAEL LIKE THAT.
HE LOVES YOU, AND YOU WOULD
NEVER DO THAT TO HIM, EITHER.
JASON: HOW MANY HOMES DOES
MICHAEL HAVE RIGHT NOW?
CARLY: IS THIS FROM SONNY
OR SOMETHING?
IS HE PUTTING THIS IN YOUR HEAD?
BECAUSE YOU CAN TELL HIM
TO BUTT OUT.
I KNOW WHEN MY SON IS IN DANGER.
JASON: HOW MANY HOMES DOES
MICHAEL HAVE RIGHT NOW?
CARLY: HE HAS TWO RIGHT NOW.
JASON: NO.
NONE.
CARLY, HE DOESN'T SLEEP
AT MY PLACE, EITHER.
AND HE DOESN'T CRY.
I GO IN TO CHECK ON HIM
AND THERE HE IS, JUST LOOKING
AT THE WALLS,
THE CEILING, HIS TOYS.
HE LOOKS AT ME.
HE LOVES ME, YEAH, BUT IT'S
DIFFERENT NOW.
I MEAN, HIS LOOK SAYS,
"YEAH, I RECOGNIZE ALL THIS,
BUT WHAT'S THE USE OF GETTING
USED TO IT?"
AND, YOU KNOW, GOOD FOR ME,
CARLY, OK?
I MADE MY POINT.
THE JUDGE SAID THAT I'M
AN IMPORTANT PERSON, THAT WE CAN
SPLIT MICHAEL 50/50.
CARLY: YOU KNOW WHAT?
YOU'RE JUST UPSET.
JASON: YEAH, YOU KNOW, I AM.
I AM UPSET.
CARLY: YOU'RE UPSET
BECAUSE YOU FOUGHT WITH A.J.
JASON: NO --
CARLY: BUT THAT WAS
HIS FAULT.
JASON: IT WAS MY FAULT,
CARLY!
WE STILL FIGHT WHEN THERE'S ONE
OF US SITTING IN THE ROOM!
THIS HAS TO STOP, CARLY.
ALL OF THIS HAS TO STOP,
AND THIS IS THE EASIEST WAY!
BOTH OF MICHAEL'S PARENTS ARE
HERE.
CARLY: STOP TALKING LIKE
THAT, ALL RIGHT?
YOU ARE MICHAEL'S FATHER.
JASON: CARLY, SOMEBODY HAS
TO QUIT!
SOMEBODY HAS TO QUIT THIS!
AND THE LOGICAL PERSON IS ME
RIGHT NOW.
CARLY: NO, IT'S NOT.
IT'S A.J.
WAIT A SECOND, NOW.
YOU KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO B
HARD.
ALL I HAVE TO DO IS STAY MARRIED
TO THIS GUY FOR A LITTLE WHILE
LONGER, AND THEN WE CAN BE
TOGETHER AND WE CAN BE A FAMILY.
CARLY: MICHAEL AND
YOU AND ME,
THE WAY WE PLANNED.
JASON: NO, NO.
JASON: YOU KNOW, YOU DID
GOOD, CARLY.
YOU DID GOOD.
YOU CALLED ALL THE SHOTS.
BUT A.J. ISN'TOING AWAY.
HE'S GOING TO BE MICHAEL'S
FAMILY FOREVER.

HANNAH: WHAT A BEAUTIFUL
NIGHT.
YOU KNOW, SUMMER NIGHTS
ON THE EAST COAST ARE SO SOFT.
THE AIR IS STILL AND
SMELLS FULL, LIKE CUT GRASS.
SONNY: THEY DON'T HAVE SUMMER
NIGHTS IN SAN DIEGO?
HANNAH: YEAH, BUT IT'S
DIFFERENT.
THE WIND BLOWS UP, SOMETIMES
WITH A COLD FOG.
YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUND
OF SPRINKLERS.
AND WHATEVER NATURAL GRASS IS
LEFT IS ALL BURNT AND DIED
A MONTH AGO.
SONNY: MISS IT?
HANNAH: I'M HAPPY HERE.
SONNY: GLAD TO HEAR IT.
WELL, I JUST THOUGHT MAYBE
BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, BRADBURN
TRACKED YOU DOWN, YOU MIGHT BE
MOVING ON.
HANNAH: WHY?
SONNY: WELL, YOU DON'T WANT
TO BE HASSLED.
HANNAH: OH, HE KNOWS
BETTER NOW.
YOU TOOK CARE OF IT.
SONNY: THINK THAT WAS ENOUGH
TO DISCOURAGE HIM?
HANNAH: OH, YEAH.
THERE'S NO WAY HE'LL COME BACK
FOR ME.
FOR ONE THING, HE IS SUCH
A COWARD.
SONNY: YEAH?
HANNAH: OH, YEAH.
SONNY: STRIKES YOU THAT WAY?
STILL, IT MUST'VE BEEN A SHOCK
TO HAVE HIM SUDDENLY SHOW UP
AFTER, YOU KNOW --
HOW LONG WAS IT SINCE THE LAST
TIME YOU'D SEEN HIM?

JAX: 45 MINUTES AND
YOU COULDN'T HAVE CALLED?
NED: OH, WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
GERTRUDE'S NOT EVEN HERE.
CHLOE: IT'S ALL MY FAULT,
REALLY.
I'M SORRY.
NED: PLEASE, DO NOT
APOLOGIZE.
JAX ALWAYS KEEPS PEOPLE WAITING.
BESIDES, HE HAD HIS
TOO-GOOD-FOR-HIM WIFE TO KEEP
HIM ENTERTAINED.
ALEXIS: WE HAD OUR FIRST
FIGHT.
JAX: YES.
NED: DO TELL.
JAX: ABOUT WHAT TO FIGHT
ABOUT.
ALEXIS: WE COULDN'T FIGURE
OUT WHAT TO BREAK UP ABOUT,
SO WE ENDED UP GOING BACK
TO PLAN A.
JAX: NO, NO.
PLAN A INVOLVED PUTTING RINGS
ON THEIR FINGERS, NOT OURS.
WE MUST BE UP TO PLAN G
OR SOMETHING BY NOW.
NED: AH, FOR GERTRUDE.
DON'T LOOK NOW, BUT HERE SHE IS.
GERTRUDE: WELL, WE MEET
AGAIN.
CHLOE: HELLO, AUNT GERTRUDE.
HOW WAS YOUR STAY AT THE HOTEL?
GERTRUDE: YOU CAN'T IMAGINE
WHAT I FOUND IN MY ROOM.
CHLOE: WELL, JUST TRY
AND IGNORE IT.
GERTRUDE: WELL, I'M TRYING,
MY DEAR, BUT, YOU KNOW, REALLY.
NED: A COCKROACH?
ALEXIS: ARE THERE
COCKROACHES?
JAX: NOT IN THE PENTHOUSE.
ALEXIS: THEN I WANT
THE PENTHOUSE IN THE SETTLEMENT.
JAX: THERE'S NO SUCH THING
AS AN ANNULMENT SETTLEMENT.
ALEXIS: EXCUSE ME, BUT WHO'S
THE ATTORNEY HERE?
JAX: WHAT?
EXCUSE ME.
HOW DID YOU PUT UP WITH
HER, HUH?
WE'RE HERE TO EAT.
PLEASE ORDER SOMETHING.
ALEXIS: IN A MINUTE.
CHLOE: I AM SORRY I PUT
EVERYBODY IN SUCH A BAD TEMPER
BY BEING SO LATE.
NED: OH, NO, NO, NO.
THEY'RE FINE.
SEE, WE'RE ACTUALLY DOING IT
RIGHT NOW.
THIS IS WHY WE'RE HERE,
REMEMBER?
CHLOE: OH, WE STARTED?
NED: YES.
CHLOE: OH.
NED: WE'RE IN LOVE.
CHLOE: YES.
JAX: NOW WHAT?
ALEXIS: I'M CHECKING
MY MESSAGES.
IT'LL ONLY TAKE A MINUTE.
JAX: OH, COME ON, ALEXIS.
YOU DID THAT, LIKE, AN HOUR AGO.
ALEXIS: I'M NEGOTIATING
FOR CLIENTS.
IT'S MOVING VERY QUICKLY.
JAX: WELL, RIGHT NOW YOU'RE
HAVING DINNER WITH YOUR NEWLYWED
HUSBAND, OK?
THANK YOU.
ALEXIS: EXCUSE ME, BUT DID
YOUR MOTHER FORGET TO TELL
YOU YOU'RE NOT THE CENTER
OF THE UNIVERSE?
JANE: YOU KNOW, I THINK I DID
FORGET.
JOHN: JERRY, YOU WERE RIGHT.
SHE'S OBVIOUSLY PERFECT FOR HIM.
I'M JOHN JACKS.
CONGRATULATIONS.

JAX: DAD. LADY JANE.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
JANE: WELL, NOW, WE THINK
WE'RE ENTITLED TO THE ACCUSING
TONE OF VOICE.
YOU HAVE GONE AND DONE IT AGAIN.
DESPITE SWEARING YOU NEVER
WOULD, YOU'VE RUN OFF AND GOTTEN
MARRIED IN SECRET.
WELL, WE'RE ALL A BIT OLDER
AND WISER AND MORE TEMPERED,
ONE HOPES, SO I'LL BE ON BETTER
BEHAVIOR IF YOU WILL.
JOHN: I, FOR ONE,
WASN'T SURPRISED IN
THE SLIGHTEST.
ALEXIS: THAT YOUR SON MARRIED
A COMPLETE STRANGER?
JOHN: CRASH YOUR CHOPPER
IN THE SAHARA WITH A WOMAN
AND YOU GET TO SEE WHAT SHE'S
MADE OF.
JAX: YEAH, THAT'S TRUE.
JOHN: UNLESS SHE DOESN'T
SURVIVE AND THE VULTURES
GET HER.
THEN YOU REALLY GET TO SEE WHAT
SHE'S MADE OF.
JAX: DAD, PLEASE.
JANE: OH, JOHN.
OH, BUT YOU LOOK WONDERFUL.
YOU BOTH LOOK WONDERFUL,
SO YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY HAPPY,
WHICH WE APPROVE OF.
AND YOU WERE GOING TO TELL US
EVENTUALLY?
JAX: UH, ACTUALLY, WE WERE
GOING TO MAKE IT A SURPRISE.
WE WERE JUST GOING TO DROP IN,
SEE YOU UP IN ALASKA.
OBVIOUSLY, I HAVE MY BIG
BROTHER'S BIG MOUTH TO THANK
FOR RUINING THE SURPRISE --
ALTHOUGH I HAVE NO IDEA HOW
HE FOUND OUT.
JERRY: WHAT'S THAT
ON YOUR HAND, JAX?
SURELY, ANYBODY COULD'VE SEEN
THAT AT JAKE'S THE OTHER NIGHT.
JANE: WELL, WHEN DID ALL THIS
HAPPEN?
I WANT DETAILS.
CHLOE: A FEW DAY AGO
IN LAS VEGAS.
I'M SORRY.
I'M CHLOE MORGAN.
JAX: THAT'S NED'S FIANCEE.
CHLOE: THAT'S RIGHT.
JANE: OOH, LOVE MUST BE
IN THE AIR.
CHLOE: YES.
AND I'M SORRY.
I'M THE ONE RESPONSIBLE
FOR YOUR SON SO SUDDENLY GETTING
MARRIED.
I JUST HAD TO GO TO LAS VEGAS
THAT NIGHT.
JANE: OH, I SEE.
JOHN: IF WE HAVE YOU TO THANK
FOR PUSHING JAX INTO MARRIAGE
WITH THIS SPLENDID WOMAN,
SO BE IT.
BUT DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD MIND
IF WE --
JANE: OBVIOUSLY,
YOU'VE FINISHED DINNER.
JAX: NO, WE JUST GOT
OUR MENUS.
JANE: OH, NED, I'M SURE
YOU'LL UNDERSTAND.
WE WERE SO LOOKING FORWARD
TO GETTING TO KNOW OUR NEW
DAUGHTER-IN-LAW.
NED: OF COURSE.
OF COURSE.
YES, WE'LL CALL YOU TOMORROW
AND RESCHEDULE.
ALEXIS: ARE YOU SURE?
JAX: YOU KNOW WHAT?
THAT'S REALLY NOT NECESSARY.
NED: OH, I THINK IT IS.
JERRY: OH, I AGREE --
SO WE CAN INTRODUCE
YOU TO THE JOYS OF BEING
A MEMBER OF THE JACKS FAMILY.
HOW MANY EMBARRASSING STORIES
ABOUT JAX'S CHILDHOOD DO
YOU THINK WE CAN SQUEEZE
INTO ONE EVENING?
JOHN: OH, 35, 40?
NED: I THINK THAT'S OUR CUE
TO GO.
GOOD NIGHT, EVERYONE.
JOHN: GOOD NIGHT.
JANE: GOOD NIGHT. THANK YOU.
JAX: NIGHT, CHLOE.
CHLOE: JAX'S PARENTS?
THIS IS OUT OF CONTROL.
NED: COME ON. NOT HERE.
LET'S GO.
JOHN: GOOD, STURDY SHOULDERS.
JAX: OH, DAD, SHE'S NOT
A SIDE OF BEEF.
COME ON.
JOHN: PAY NO ATTENTION
TO HIM.
WE WANT TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT
YOU, ALEXIS.
FOR INSTANCE, HOW DO YOU LIKE
CHILDREN?
ALEXIS: GRILLED OR
DEEP-FRIED.

SONNY: I WOULDN'T
UNDERESTIMATE A GUY WHO TRACKED
YOU ALL THE WAY ACROSS
THE COUNTRY.
I MEAN, YOU KNOW, HE COULD TURN
UP AGAIN.
HANNAH: BUT HE'S JUST NOT
LIKE THAT.
I MEAN, HE MAY BE PERSISTENT,
A LITTLE VINDICTIVE,
BUT AN OBSESSED STALKER?
NO WAY.
SONNY: HOW DID HE KNOW WHERE
TO FIND YOU?
I MEAN, IT'S NOT LIKE YOU LEFT
A FORWARDING ADDRESS.
HANNAH: YOU KNOW WHAT?
WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THIS
AND IT'S MAKING ME FEEL MORE
AND MORE UNCOMFORTABLE
BECAUSE I MADE A REALLY STUPID
MISTAKE.
I'VE BEEN WANTING TO TAKE SOME
CLASSES HERE AT P.C.U.,
SO I CALLED SAN DIEGO
FOR A TRANSCRIPT, AND HE'S
A PROFESSOR THERE.
HE MUST HAVE FRIENDS
IN THE REGISTRAR.
I'M SURE THAT'S HOW HE FOUND ME.
SONNY: WHEN DID YOU CALL?
I MEAN, YOU KNOW, I MEAN,
HOW DID YOU KNOW HE WASN'T
ALREADY, YOU KNOW, HANGING
AROUND, KEEPING AN EYE
ON YOU BY THEN?
HANNAH: NO, HE JUST WOULDN'T
DO THAT.
YOU KNOW, HE CAME TO SEE ME.
HE SAW ME ONCE.
YOU GOT RID OF HIM.
CAN WE PLEASE NOT DISCUSS HIM
ANYMORE?
SONNY: THAT JERK?
I HOPE NOT.
WE'VE GOT BETTER THINGS TO THINK
ABOUT, I HOPE.
WILL I SEE YOU TONIGHT AFTER
WORK?
HANNAH: YOU KNOW, I DON'T
THINK SO.
I'M KIND OF FEELING SLEEPY
ALREADY FROM THE LAKE
AND THE SUN.
I THINK I'M JUST GOING
TO SHUFFLE THROUGH MY SHIFT
AND COME STRAIGHT TO BED,
IF THAT'S OK.
SONNY: WHATEVER YOUR SLEEPY
HEART DESIRES.
HANNAH: YOU KNOW WHAT?
I NEED THAT RIDE TO WORK,
LIKE, RIGHT NOW.
SONNY: JOHNNY'S JUST AROUND
THE CORNER.
HANNAH: OK.

CARLY: I THINK WHAT YOU MEAN
TO SAY IS THAT YOU NEED A BREAK
FROM ME.
JASON: NO, CARLY, I DON'T
NEED A BREAK FROM YOU.
CARLY: WELL, MAYBE
FROM MICHAEL, THEN.
IT'S UNDERSTANDABLE.
YOU'VE BEEN A SINGLE PARENT FOR,
LIKE, A REALLY LONG TIME NOW,
AND NOW YOU'RE GOING TO DO IT
THREE DAYS A WEEK AGAIN.
AND IT'S TOUGH, I KNOW.
JASON: YOU'RE NOT LISTENING
TO ME.
CARLY: BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT
SAYING ANYTHING WORTH
LISTENING TO!
YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE
ANYTHING UP.
GOD, JASON, IF YOU THINK
MICHAEL'S BETTER OFF IN ONE
PLACE, THEN FINE.
I'LL TAKE CARE OF HIM HERE UNTIL
I CAN SHAKE LOSE OF A.J.,
AND THEN I'LL BRING HIM BACK
TO YOU.
JASON: WHAT'S THAT GOING
TO CHANGE -- NOT FOR ME AND YOU,
BUT FOR MICHAEL?
AS LONG AS I HAVE A LEGAL TIE
TO HIM, A.J.'S NOT GOING
TO QUIT.
CARLY, THE GUY'S LIKE A BULLDOG.
YOU KNOW IT.
THIS --
THIS IS NOT ABOUT YOU.
THIS IS A CONTEST TO HIM,
AND THAT'S -- AND THAT'S HOW
HE WINS.
WITH ENOUGH POWER AND ENOUGH
MONEY AND ENOUGH LAWYERS
AND ENOUGH FIGHTING, THE LAW
WILL ALWAYS SAY HE WINS.
CARLY: I'M SORRY.
I'M SORRY, I'M SORRY.
JASON: FOR WHAT?
CARLY: I'M SORRY I EVER SAID
IT, OK?
JASON: SAID WHAT?
CARLY: THAT I FEEL SORRY
FOR A.J., BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT
THIS IS ABOUT.
JASON: NO.
CARLY: YOU'RE PUNISHING ME!
JASON: NO, I'M NOT TRYING
TO PUNISH YOU.
CARLY: I ONLY SAID IT
BECAUSE, GOD, YOU SHOULD SEE HOW
THEY TREAT HIM SOMETIMES.
BUT I DON'T LOVE HIM.
I'M NEVER GOING TO LOVE HIM
AND NEITHER IS MICHAEL.
YOU'RE MICHAEL'S FATHER.
JASON: YOU CAN SAY IT
A THOUSAND TIMES, BUT IT DOES
NOT TAKE AWAY WHAT A.J. REALLY
IS TO HIM!
NOT LEGALLY, NOT BIOLOGICALLY,
AND NOT TO THE EYES OF THE WHOLE
WORLD NOW THAT YOU'RE MARRIED
TO THE GUY.
YOU'RE ALWAYS THREATENING TO GET
RID OF HIM, TO MAKE HIM CRASH
AND BURN
YOU KNOW, I DON'T WANT THAT
FOR MICHAEL'S FATHER.
AND I ESPECIALLY DON'T WANT
MICHAEL TO KNOW THAT IT WAS
SOMETHING THAT HIS MOTHER DID.
CARLY: YOU ARE MICHAEL'S
FATHER.
YOU ARE, AND YOU KNOW YOU ARE.
JASON: THEN IF I AM,
I HAVE TO DO THE RIGHT THING.
I HAVE TO GET US OUT OF IT --
ALL THREE OF US.
CARLY: WELL, IT FINALLY
HAPPENED.
YOU FINALLY TOLD ME A LIE.
EVEN IF YOU THINK IT'S TRUE,
I KNOW YOU, AND YOU WOULD NEVER
DO THAT TO MICHAEL,
AND YOU WOULDN'T DO IT TO ME,
EITHER, EVEN IF YOU THINK
I DESERVE IT.
I'M SORRY THAT I DID THIS.
I DON'T KNOW WHY -
WHY I THOUGHT I COULD ASK
SO MUCH OF YOU.
YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK?
I THINK BECAUSE --
I THINK I COULD ASK
YOU FOR YOUR WHOLE HEART EVEN
IF I BROKE IT BECAUSE, YOU KNOW,
YOU ALREADY HAVE MINE.
YOU KNOW THAT, DON'T YOU?
SO I'M GOING TO GO INSIDE
AND I'M GOING TO TELL MICHAEL
THAT HIS DADDY LOVES HIM
AND THAT HE'LL SEE HIM TOMORROW.

FELICIA: OK, BE CAREFUL.
DON'T LOCK US IN.
LUKE: WELL, NOW, WE CAN'T
LEAVE IT WIDE OPEN
THERA WATCHMAN, REMEMBER?
STAND RIGHT THERE.
I'LL SEEK THIS --
FELICIA: OK.
LUKE: SEAL AGAIN.
YEP, IT'S STE.
OK.
CAN YOU GIVE ME A HAND?
NOW, VERY, VERY, VERY,
VERY SLOWLY, I'M GOING
TO RELEASE THE TOP --
FELICIA: OK.
LUKE: AND WE'LL JUST
LET IT --
OK.
FELICIA: OK.
LUKE: YOU READY?
FELICIA: YEAH.
AH!
LUKE: WHOA! WHOA!
FELICIA: AH! AH! AH!
LUKE: SHH!
DON'T --
EASY. PUSH IT BACK.
PLEASE DON'T SCREAM.
FELICIA: WHY?
LUKE: WELL, THERE'S
A WATCHMAN OUT THERE, REMEMBER?
FELICIA: OH, MY GOD.
DO YOU THINK HE HEARD US?
LUKE: WELL, THE CHANCES ARE
SLIM TO NONE, SO DON'T WORRY
ABOUT IT.
WE GOT TO DO THIS AGAIN.
FELICIA: OK.
LUKE: IT'S VERY HEAVY,
REMEMBER.
SLOWLY, OK?
FELICIA: SLOWLY.
LUKE: READY?
FELICIA: MM-HMM.
LUKE: OK. HERE WE GO.
FELICIA: OK.

JANE: WELL, ANYWAY,
THERE HE WAS, LOST IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE OUTBACK, ALL,
WHAT, 44 INCHES OF HIM,
BROWN AS A BERRY AND AS HAPPY
AS AN 8-YEAR-OLD COULD BE.
JAX: THE MORAL OF MOST
OF THEIR STORIES IS THAT IT'S
NOT SAFE TO LEAVE ME UNATTENDED.
JANE: NO, THE MORAL
OF THE STORY IS YOU ALWAYS DID
WHAT MADE YOU HAPPY, AND HAPPY
IS WHAT WE ALWAYS WANTED
YOU TO BE, AND WE'RE SO PLEASED
HE'S FOUND THAT WITH YOU.
JAX: I REALLY AM HAPPY.
IT'S A GOOD DAY TO HAVE YOU HERE
FUSSING OVER ME.
JOHN: I'M SO SORRY YOU LOST
YOUR PARENTS SO YOUNG.
I HOPE YOU'LL THINK OF US
AS YOUR FAMILY FROM NOW ON.
ALEXIS: THANK YOU.
THAT WOULD BE VERY EASY TO DO.
JANE: JOHN, YOU'RE GETTING
THAT LOOK.
I THINK WE'VE CLUTCHED
AT THE NEWLYWEDS LONG ENOUGH.
WE'RE HEADING UP.
JOHN: THE WOMAN WILL BE
THE DEATH OF ME.
EVER SINCE I HAD THAT LITTLE
SPELL, SHE ACTUALLY THINKS
SHE CAN TELL WHEN I'M GETTING
TIRED.
JERRY: SPELL?
IT WAS A HEART ATTACK.
JANE: WELL, WE HAVEN'T EVEN
UNPACKED.
I'M SURE YOU'LL EXCUSE US?
YOU KNOW, DO YOU THINK YOU COULD
POSSIBLY MEET US FOR BREAKFAST?
ALEXIS: I'D LOVE TO.
JAX: IF WE CAN FIND SOMETHING
BESIDES MY CHILDHOOD FOIBLES
TO TALK ABOUT, YES.
JERRY: WHAT ABOUT
HIS ADOLESCENT FOIBLES?
JAX: HEY.
JANE: GOOD NIGHT,
DEAR, AND CONGRATULATIONS
TO BOTH OF YOU.
WE'RE SO PLEASED.
ALEXIS: THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
JOHN: WE'LL SEE YOU
IN THE MORNING.
ALEXIS: ALL RIGHT, THANK YOU.
JAX: NIGHT.
JERRY: I'LL MAKE SURE THEY'RE
SETTLED IN COMFORTABLY.
JAX: HEY, JERRY?
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING,
DRAGGING THEM DOWN HERE
WITHOUT ANY WARNING?
JERRY: I WAS THINKING THAT
FINALLY THE JACKS FAMILY HAD
SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE.
I WAS THINKING YOU LOOKED HAPPY
AND IN LOVE AND THEY SHOULD
SEE IT.
THEY DIDN'T HAVE TO BE DRAGGED
HERE, BELIEVE ME.
AND PARTLY I WAS THINKING THAT
STEALING NED ASHTON'S WOMAN IS
AN ACCOMPLISHMENT THAT OUGHT
TO BE SHARED PUBLICLY.
JAX: WELL --
JERRY: JAX AND I HAVE ALWAYS
SHARED EVERYTHING.
JAX: OH, GET OUT OF HERE.
GO ON, TAKE A HIKE.
ALEXIS: THEY LOVE YOU A LOT.
JAX: YES, THEY DO.
ALEXIS: ALL RIGHT.
SO NOW WE NEED A PLAN.
WHAT?

CHLOE: OH.
THIS CANNOT CONTINUE.
NED: OH, WE'LL THINK
OF SOMETHING.
CHLOE: NO.
NO MORE INVENTIONS, NO MORE
FLIGHTS OF FANCY.
ALEXIS AND JAX HAVE BEEN TRAPPED
AND NEED TO BE SPRUNG.
NED: OK, CHLOE, FIRST LOWER
YOUR VOICE.
GRANDMOTHER IS RIGHT -- THESE
WALLS HERE HAVE EARS.
SECONDLY, JAX, ALEXIS, AND I ARE
ALL ADULTS.
WE COULD'VE STOOD UP AND GOT OFF
THIS TRAIN AT ANY POINT,
BUT WE DIDN'T.
CHLOE: BUT WHO KNEW IT'D BE
LIKE QUICKSAND GETTING WORSE
AND WORSE?
NED: TRUE. TRUE.
IT'S UNFORTUNATE AND A LITTLE
COMICAL HOW EVERY POSSIBLE
COMPLICATION HAS SEEMED TO HAVE
DESCENDED UPON US, BUT I ASSURE
YOU IT WILL NOT LAST.
JAX'S PARENTS WILL GO HOME.
GERTRUDE WILL GO HOME.
AND A FEW WEEKS FROM NOW, WE CAN
ALL JUST GO OUR QUIET LITTLE
WAYS AND RESUME OUR QUIET LITTLE
LIVES.
CHLOE: YOU'RE THE BEST.
YOU KNOW THAT?
NED: DID I FORGET TO MENTION
THAT?
SLEEP TIGHT.
CHLOE: GOOD NIGHT.
NED: TALK TO YOU TOMORROW.
CHLOE: OK.
EDWARD: WELL, I THOUGHT NED
WOULD NEVER LEAVE.
CHLOE: EDWARD.
WERE YOU EAVESDROPPING ON US?
EDWARD: WELL, I TRIED,
BUT AT MY AGE, THE HEARING IS
NOT AS GOOD AS IT WAS.
BUT I DON'T NEED TO LISTEN
AT A KEYHOLE TO FIND OUT WHAT'S
GOING ON.
WHY DON'T YOU JUST TELL ME WHAT
YOU'RE UP TO, HMM?

CHLOE: I SUPPOSE I SHOULD
CONFIDE IN SOMEONE.
EDWARD: MM-HMM.
CHLOE: I AM HAPPIER THAN
I HAVE EVER BEEN, AND IT IS ALL
BECAUSE OF YOU.
EDWARD: OH, REALLY?
OH. UH-UH.
CHLOE: IF YOU HADN'T WRITTEN
THOSE LETTERS TO LILA, I MIGHT
NEVER HAVE COME HERE.
I MIGHT NEVER HAVE MET NED.
EDWARD: YOU'RE NOT MARRYING
NED FOR LOVE.
YOU'RE MARRYING HIM TO GET
AROUND SOME ABSURD CLAUSE
IN HERBERT MORGAN'S WILL.
THOSE MORGAN MEN WERE ALL
STUBBORN AND PECULIAR.
ONLY THE WOMEN WERE WORTH
A DAMN.
CHLOE: MY GREAT UNCLE WAS NOT
PECULIAR.
IT IS TRUE THAT THE WORDING
OF HIS BEQUEST HAS CAUSED SOME
DIFFICULTIES.
EDWARD: WHY DIDN'T YOU COME
TO ME IN THE FIRST PLACE?
I'D HAVE FOUND YOU A BETTER
SOLUTION THAN NED, OF ALL
PEOPLE.
WHY, FOR INSTANCE, COULD
E.L.Q. HAVE NOT BACKED
YOU A WHOLE NEW DESIGN COMPANY?
CHLOE: I HAPPEN TO ADORE NED,
AND I WOULD HAVE SOME HESITATION
BECOMING AN EMPLOYEE
OF E.L.Q. AFTER SEEING HOW
LOYALTY AND PROFESSIONALISM ARE
REWARDED.
EDWARD: BUT, MY DEAR,
YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND
THE CIRCUMSTANCES.
NED DIDN'T APPLY HIMSELF!
IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.
AND -- WHAT?
CARLY: SORRY FOR
INTERRUPTING.
CHLOE: NO, THAT'S ALL RIGHT.
I WAS JUST GOING TO BED.
EDWARD: NO, NO, NO.
[DOORBELL RINGS]
EDWARD: NOT UNTIL YOU HEAR ME
OUT ON THIS.
WHAT?
REGINALD!
CHLOE: FOR GOODNESS SAKE.
THE DOOR'S 10 FEET AWAY, EDWARD.
EDWARD: WISH SOMEONE WOULD
TELL ME WHAT WE PAY
SERVANTS FOR.
HEY -- HEY, HEY, DO YOU HAVE ANY
IDEA WHAT TIME IT IS?
JASON: I WON'T BOTHER
YOU AGAIN.
EDWARD: WHAT DO YOU WANT?
JASON: TO SAY GOOD-BYE
TO MICHAEL.

JAX: YOU KNOW, IT'S MY OWN
FAULT FOR NOT TELLING JERRY
RIGHT AWAY.
GERTRUDE WAS SITTING THERE WHEN
MY PARENTS WALKED IN.
THERE WAS NO WAY I WAS GOING
TO BE ABLE TO TELL THEM
EVERYTHING.
ALEXIS: JAX, I UNDERSTAND.
JAX: NO, YOU DON'T.
SEE, I'M MAKING THE SAME EXCUSES
AS THEY TRY TO MAKE TO ME.
I'M SAYING EVERYTHING I DID WAS
FOR SOMEONE ELSE'S GOOD,
EVERY LIE I EVER TOLD WAS
UNINTENTIONAL.
AND WHY AREN'T YOU TELLING ME
I DON'T GET TO MAKE THAT KIND
OF DEFENSE WHEN I WOULDN'T ALLOW
IT TO THE PEOPLE THAT I LOVE
MOST?
NOW, YOU WERE THERE AFTER BRENDA
DIED.
YOU SAW HOW I TREATED THEM.
ALEXIS: SO YOU ATE A LITTLE
HUMBLE PIE FOR DESSERT.
REGRET ISN'T ALWAYS SUCH A BAD
THING.
JAX: I CUT MYSELF OFF
FROM THEM BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T
MEET MY HIGH MORAL STANDARDS.
MY HAPPY CHILDHOOD,
MY CHARMED LIFE --
NONE OF THAT COUNTED.
ONLY THE FACT THAT THEY LIED.
I MEAN, I'M SUCH A HYPOCRITE.
ALEXIS: THAT'S NOT TRUE.
AND IF IT MAKES YOUR HEART
A LITTLE LARGER, A
LITTLE ROOMIER,
IT'S A GIFT, ISN'T IT?
JAX: WE WERE SUCH A HAPPY
FAMILY.
ALEXIS: SO I GATHER.
JAX: WE HAVEN'T BEEN THAT
IN A LONG TIME, YOU KNOW.
SO WOULD IT BE SO WRONG TO LET
THEM HAVE THIS VISIT?
ALEXIS: I WAS HOPING
WE WOULDN'T HAVE TO DISILLUSION
THEM RIGHT AWAY.
AND NOT JUST FOR THEIR SAKE.
I'VE NEVER BEEN A PART
OF ANYTHING LIKE THE JACKS
FAMILY BEFORE, AND I WOULDN'T
MIND A LITTLE LONGER TASTE
OF IT.
JAX: YOU KNOW,
I'M REALLY GLAD I MARRIED YOU.

LUKE: PUSH!
OK.
FELICIA: YEAH.
OK.
LUKE: SHE'S SEALED UP.
ALL RIGHT.
THE BOYS ARE HOME.
THEY'RE SLEEPING AGAIN.
WE CAN GO.
FELICIA: OK.
IN A MINUTE.
LUKE: WHAT?
OH.
OK.
WELL, YOU GO AHEAD.
MY ATHEISM'S ACTING UP AGAIN.
I'LL GIVE YOU A MOMENT'S
SILENCE.
FELICIA: LORD, PLEASE RECEIVE
THE SOULS OF GEORGE ALAN
QUARTERMAINE AND WHOEVER ELSE IS
IN THERE.
MAY THEY REST IN ETERNAL PEACE.
AMEN.
LUKE: AMEN.
THAT MEANS, LIKE, "THAT'S ALL,
FOLKS," RIGHT?
FELICIA: RIGHT.
LUKE: OK, LET'S GO.
FELICIA: LET'S GO.
THANK YOU.
[DOOR CLOSES]
[FELICIA GASPS]

HANNAH: I THOUGHT I TOLD
YOU NOT TO COME --
SONNY: YOU THOUGHT
YOU TOLD WHO?
NOT ME.

>> On the next "GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

JAX: ALEXIS MARRIED ME.

SONNY: YOU LIED TO ME,
HANNAH.
WHY?

CHLOE: JASON'S HERE.
A.J.: I'LL TAKE CARE OF THIS
MYSELF.
CARLY: WHY CAN'T YOU JUST
LEAVE THEM ALONE FOR ONCE?

FELICIA: THERE'S NO WAY OUT.
