ELIZABETH: HEY, I DON'T THINK
I CAN KEEP THEM MUCH LONGER.
JUAN: YOU'VE GOT TO.
ELIZABETH: I'VE ALREADY GIVEN
THEM THE SLOWEST SERVICE
IN THE HISTORY OF WAITRESSING,
JUAN.
WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?
JUAN: I DON'T KNOW.
JUST KEEP STALLING.
ELIZABETH: I --
NIKOLAS: STALL WHO?
ELIZABETH: NIKOLAS!
NIKOLAS: WHAT?
ELIZABETH: I AM GLAD TO SEE
YOU.
I NEED YOUR HELP.

CHLOE: AFTERNOON OR EVENING?
NED: WHAT'S THAT?
CHLOE: OUR WEDDING.
NED: OH, WHATEVER MAKES
YOU HAPPY, DARLING.
CHLOE: WELL, IF WE HAVE IT
IN THE AFTERNOON, THE
BRIDESMAIDS CAN WEAR LIGHT PEACH
WITH A SPLASH OF FRENCH BLUE
TO PICK UP THE SKY.
BUT, OF COURSE, IF WE HAVE IT
AT NIGHT, I CAN INCORPORATE
THE MOONLIGHT BY USING WHITE
SATIN TRIM ON ALL THE HEMS
AND NECKLINES.
CARRY THAT THEME OVER
ONTO THE TABLES, AND THE ENTIRE
EVENT WOULD ABSOLUTELY SHIMMER.
NED: THIS CODICIL
TO YOUR UNCLE'S WILL STATES THAT
THE WEDDING MUST HAVE ALL
THE TRAPPINGS.
NOW, IS THERE ANYTHING THAT
WE'RE LEAVING OUT?
CHLOE: WE COULD ARRIVE
IN A HORSE-DRAWN CARRIAGE
WITH THE HORSES WEARING MATCHING
RIBBONS AND HATS.
NED: HMM.
CHLOE: PERHAPS THAT'S ONE
TRAPPING TOO MANY.
NED: FAMILY IN ATTENDANCE,
CHECK.
BEST MAN --
I'LL THINK OF SOMEONE.
ALEXIS: YOU HAVE TO HIDE US.
NED: WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?
ALEXIS: MY MOTHER-IN-LAW.

STEFAN: I'LL DO THAT,
MARISSA.
THANK YOU.
STEFAN: HOW ARE YOU TODAY,
MOTHER?
I SPOKE TO YOUR DOCTORS EARLIER.
THEY REGRETTED TO INFORM ME THAT
THERE'S BEEN NO IMPROVEMENT
IN YOUR CONDITION,
WHICH IS NO SURPRISE TO ANYONE.
BUT I'M SURE YOU HAVE MUCH MORE
PRESSING ISSUES ON YOUR MIND,
SUCH AS THE ANTIDOTE
TO YOUR CONDITION I SO HASTILY
EMPTIED OUT ON THE FLOOR.
I HAVE A CHEMIST
WORKING ON DUPLICATION.
SO FAR, HE'S HAD NO SUCCESS.
IT'S A PITY, ISN'T IT?
A SINGLE VIAL COULD RESTORE YOU.
AND YET WITHOUT IT,
YOU MIGHT SPEND THE REST
OF YOUR DAYS IN HORIZONTAL
CONTEMPLATION.
I SUGGEST
YOU USE YOUR TIME WISELY.
LAURA: STEFAN,
YOU CAN'T DO THIS.

SONNY: WHERE THE HELL
YOU BEEN?
JASON: RIDING.
SONNY: DID YOU KNOW WE HAD
A SHIPMENT COMING IN EARLY THIS
MORNING?
NOBODY WAS THERE TO RECEIVE IT.
VITO TOLD THEM TO LEAVE IT
ON THE BOAT, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
THEY'RE STILL GOING TO CHARGE US
FOR A DAY'S STORAGE.
JASON: WELL, COULDN'T
YOU HANDLE IT?
SONNY: I'M IN ANOTHER
BUSINESS.
THE WAREHOUSE IS YOUR
RESPONSIBILITY, NOT RIDING
ON A BIKE OR NOT PLAYING
WITH YOUR KID.
JASON: I DON'T HAVE A KID.
SONNY: WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
JASON: I GAVE MICHAEL UP.

JASON: THE OTHER DAY,
I LOST IT AND THREW MICHAEL'S
PLAYPEN AGAINST THE WALL.
I THOUGHT I WAS ALONE,
BUT MICHAEL WAS THERE
WITH CARLY.
I NEVER WANTED HIM TO SEE
SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
SONNY: SO YOU MADE A MISTAKE.
DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO GIVE UP
YOUR SON.
JASON: A.J. AND I CAN'T KEEP
FROM FIGHTING WITH EACH OTHER.
IT'LL ONLY GET WORSE.
SONNY: THE KID LOVES YOU,
JASON.
YOU KNOW, HE NEEDS A FATHER.
JASON: AND CARLY LOVES
MICHAEL A LOT.
I KNOW THAT FOR SURE.
A.J. TRIES, AND MICHAEL --
MICHAEL IS DOING BETTER
WITH HIM.
SONNY: WHATEVER YOU SIGNED,
WE'RE GOING DOWN TO
THE COURTHOUSE RIGHT NOW.
WE'RE GOING TO UNSIGN IT.
JASON: SONNY, THIS IS
MY DECISION.
I WANT IT TO BE THIS WAY.
SONNY: WHY?
JASON: FOR MICHAEL.
I DON'T WANT HIM HAVING
TO CHOOSE BETWEEN ME
AND A.J. SOMEDAY.
IT WOULD TEAR HIM APART.
I WON'T PUT HIM THROUGH IT.
SONNY: THERE ARE OTHER WAYS
TO HANDLE THIS, JASON.
JASON: I DIDN'T WANT
YOU HEARING IT FROM SOMEONE
ELSE.
SONNY: WAIT A MINUTE.
JASON: FOR WHAT?
FOR WHAT?
THERE'S NO GOING BACK.
I WOULDN'T IF I COULD.
I DID WHAT I HAD TO DO
FOR MICHAEL.
NOW I JUST HAVE TO FIND SOME WAY
TO LIVE THROUGH IT.

LAURA: I THINK IT'S VERY KIND
OF YOU TO SIT HERE WITH
YOUR MOTHER AND TO PROVIDE
FOR HER THE WAY THAT YOU HAVE,
BUT YOU CAN'T GIVE UP
YOUR ENTIRE LIFE TO HER.
YOU HAVE TO TAKE A BREAK.
STEFAN: WELL, SHE NEEDS
THE COMPANY.
LAURA: IF YOU REALLY THINK
THAT SHE NEEDS THE COMPANY,
I WOULD BE HAPPY TO SIT HERE
WITH HER WHILE YOU GO OUT
FOR A WALK.
STEFAN: YOU'RE THE LAST
PERSON I WOULD EVER ASK TO SIT
WITH MY MOTHER.
LAURA: I'M NOT DOING IT
FOR HER.
STEFAN: RIGHT.
I WON'T BE LONG.
LAURA: WELL, LOOKS LIKE WE'RE
ALONE FINALLY.
YOU KNOW, YOU'VE MANAGED
TO CONTROL STEFAN IN ONE WAY
OR ANOTHER FOR HIS ENTIRE LIFE.
EVEN NOW, IN YOUR PRESENT STATE,
YOU MANAGE TO IMPOSE YOUR WILL
ON HIM.
WELL, I'M AFRAID THAT THOSE DAYS
ARE OVER BECAUSE STEFAN IS NOT
ALONE ANYMORE.
AND THINGS ARE GOING TO BE VERY
DIFFERENT NOW.
WHEN HE WANTS TO SIT WITH YOU,
I'M GOING TO ENCOURAGE HIM TO GO
FOR A WALK.
WHEN HE WANTS TO DISCUSS
YOUR CONDITION, I'M GOING
TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT, AND I'M
GOING TO REMIND HIM EVERY DAY
THAT WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU IS
NOTHING LESS THAN DIVINE
RETRIBUTION FOR ALL THE MISERY
YOU HAVE CAUSED SO MANY PEOPLE
ALL YOUR LIFE.
I'M GOING TO FREE HIM FROM YOU,
HELENA, ONCE AND FOR ALL.

ALEXIS: IT HAD TO HAVE BEEN
ABOUT 4:00 IN THE MORNING.
JAX: IT WAS 6:00.
ALEXIS: ALL OF A SUDDEN,
THERE WAS THIS POUNDING
AT THE DOOR, AND THERE SHE WAS.
CHLOE: WHO?
ALEXIS: JAX'S MOTHER.
JAX: SHE WANTED TO TAKE
HER NEW DAUGHTER-IN-LAW
ON A GET-TO-KNOW-YOU HIKE.
CHLOE: HOW SWEET.
NED: HASN'T SHE EVER HEARD
OF A GET-TO-KNOW-YOU LUNCH?
JAX: HEY, SHE WANTED IT TO BE
SPECIAL.
ALEXIS: OH, IT WAS SPECIAL,
ALL RIGHT.
12 MILES.
UPHILL.
THROUGH TERRAIN A MOUNTAIN GOAT
WOULD FIND CHALLENGING.
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE UP HERE?
NED: OH, LET ME CHECK.
ALEXIS: I MEAN, DON'T GET ME
WRONG.
I ADORE YOUR MOTHER.
I DO.
SHE'S LOVING, AND SHE'S
INTELLIGENT.
OW! OW, OW.
SHE JUST HAS THIS PENCHANT
FOR BLAZING HER OWN TRAILS.
I GOT IT.
NED: OK.
CHLOE: I USED TO LOVE GOING
ON LONG WALKS IN THE WOODS
WITH FRIENDS.
I FOUND IT FREED ME TO TALK
ABOUT WHATEVER POPPED
INTO OUR HEADS.
ALEXIS: LADY JANE PRETTY MUCH
STUCK TO ONE SUBJECT.
NED: OH, LET ME GUESS -- JAX.
ALEXIS: HIS FIRST STEPS,
HIS FIRST WORDS,
HIS FAVORITE FOODS,
THROUGH AGES 7 THROUGH 14.
CHLOE: THAT MUST HAVE BEEN
SO INTERESTING.
I MEAN, IT'S NICE TO HEAR ABOUT
SOMEONE FROM A PARENT'S
PERSPECTIVE.
ALEXIS: HE LOVED
MOOSE BURGERS.
CHLOE: WHAT?
ALEXIS: AS A YOUNG MAN,
HE ATE MOOSE BURGERS AT LEAST
ONCE A DAY.
NED: SEE, THAT'S INFORMATION
I COULD HAVE LIVED WITHOUT.
JAX: HEY, HAVE YOU EVER HAD
A MOOSE BURGER?
NED: NO, AND DON'T OFFER
TO HAVE ONE FLOWN IN FOR ME,
EITHER.
CHLOE: I'VE HAD RHINOCEROS
BURGERS.
IN MOZAMBIQUE.
I DID A DRESS FOR THE
FIRST LADY.
ALEXIS: I'M SURE I'LL LEARN
MORE ABOUT THIS TOMORROW.
SHE'S PROMISED TO FILL ME
IN ON HIS LATE TEEN YEARS WHEN
WE GO BOATING.
SHE'S NOT GOING TO MAKE ME ROW,
IS SHE?
JAX: OH, NO.
YOU DON'T ROW A KAYAK.
YOU PADDLE IT.
ALEXIS: I'M NOT GOING
TO MAKE IT.
I CAN BARELY MOVE AS IT IS.
NED: AH, HONEY, WHY DON'T
YOU GET INTO A HOT BATH, LET ME
WASH YOUR HAIR.
AND THEN WHEN YOU GET OUT,
I'LL GIVE YOU A NICE MASSAGE.
YOU'LL FEEL LIKE A NEW WOMAN.
ALEXIS: YOU'RE A VERY NICE
HUMAN BEING.
JAX: HEY, WHAT AM I SUPPOSED
TO DO WHILE YOU'RE MASSAGING
MY WIFE?
NED: EAT YOUR HEART OUT.
JAX: RHINOCEROS BURGERS?
NED: OH.
ALEXIS: OH.
OW.

NIKOLAS: THERE YOU GO.
MAN: SO WHO SHOULD I MAKE
THIS OUT TO?
NIKOLAS: COULD YOU MAKE IT
OUT TO MY SISTER, LULU?
MAN: YEAH, YEAH.
NIKOLAS: ACTUALLY, IF ALL
OF YOU COULD SIGN IT, THAT WOULD
BE GREAT.
MAN: NO PROBLEM.
NIKOLAS: IT'D BE A THRILL
FOR HER.
MAN: HERE YOU GO.
NIKOLAS: THANKS.
MAN: NO PROBLEM, MAN.
EMILY: JUAN, I GOT
YOUR MESSAGE.
ARE YOU OK?
ARE YOU IN TROUBLE AGAIN?
JUAN: NAH.
NO, NO, NO.
IF YOU WANT TO FIND OUT,
JUST FOLLOW ME.
EMILY: WELL --
I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
JUAN: WAIT -- COME ON, EMILY.
GO ASK THEM FOR THEIR AUTOGRAPH.
EMILY: NO, NEVER.
NEVER.
JUAN: OK, I'LL DO IT.
EMILY: WAIT, WAIT, WAIT.
JUAN --
JUAN: HEY, GUYS.
MAN: HEY.
HOW YOU DOING?
JUAN: YEAH, I'VE SEEN
YOU EVER NIGHT YOU'VE BEEN
IN PORT CHARLES.
PUT ON A GREAT SHOW.
MAN: OH, THANKS.
SECOND MAN: THANKS.
JUAN: IN FACT, I'M GOING
TO SEE YOU AGAIN TONIGHT.
MAN: WE BETTER PUT IN A NEW
SONG FOR THIS GUY.
ELIZABETH: HERE'S
YOUR CHANGE.
SORRY IT TOOK SO LONG.
MAN: OH, THAT'S ALL RIGHT.
JUST KEEP IT.
ELIZABETH: REALLY?
MAN: YE, YEAH.
ELIZABETH: THANKS.
JUAN: HANG ON.
BEFORE YOU GO, THIS IS
MY GIRLFRIEND, EMILY.
MAN: HEY, HOW YOU DOING?
EMILY: HI.
JUAN: I WAS WONDERING
IF YOU COULD SIGN AN AUTOGRAPH
FOR HER.
MAN: SURE.
EMILY: HI. NICE TO MEET YOU.
MAN: IS IT EMILY?
EMILY: HI. EMILY, YEAH.
MAN: OK.
EMILY: YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME.
MAN: OH, THANKS A LOT.
HOPE YOU ENJOY THE SHOW.
EMILY: YEAH.
MAN: HERE YOU GO.
YOU GUYS HAVE A GOOD ONE.
JUAN: YEAH, YOU, TOO.
EMILY: YOU, TOO.
MAN: HERE YOU GO.
EMILY: THANKS.
MAN: IT WAS NICE MEETING YOU.
EMILY: YOU, TOO.
JUAN: TAKE IT EASY.
MAN: SEE YOU.
EMILY: NICE TO MEET YOU. BYE.
MAN: A PLEASURE.
EMILY: BYE.
MAN: BYE.
EMILY: BYE.

LAURA: DID YOU GO OUTSIDE?
STEFAN: NO.
I HAD SEVERAL PHONE CALLS
TO RETURN.
LAURA: OH, STEFAN.
STEFAN: COULDN'T BE AVOIDED.
THE ATTORNEYS NEEDED TO UPDATE
ME ON THE ESTATE.
LAURA: COME ON.
LET'S GO OUTSIDE.
JUST FOR A MINUTE.
IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.
STEFAN: ALL RIGHT.
LAURA: ISN'T IT GREAT?
IT'S SO CLEAR.
STEFAN: IT'S BEAUTIFUL.
LAURA: YOU KNOW, THE LAST
TIME WE WERE OUT HERE, THE WORLD
WAS A VERY, VERY DIFFERENT
PLACE.
I THINK IT'S MUCH EASIER NOW
AND MUCH HAPPIER.
STEFAN: I WOULD LIKE
TO BELIEVE THAT.
LAURA: CAN WE SEE THE COUNTRY
HOUSE FROM OUT HERE?
STEFAN: OH.
WELL, LET'S SEE.
IT'S QUITE FAR.
SEE THE SMALL LAKE
ALL THE WAY OUT THERE?
LAURA: OH. YES.
STEFAN: I BELIEVE IT'S JUST
BEYOND THAT ON THE OTHER SIDE
OF THE HILL.
LAURA: OH.
REMEMBER HOW HAPPY WE WERE WHEN
WE WERE THERE, HOW FREE WE WERE,
AND HOW MUCH AT PEACE.
STEFAN I DO.
LAURA: GOOD.
I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER THAT.
AND NOT JUST DEEP, DEEP,
DOWN INSIDE.
UP ON THE SURFACE, WHERE YOU CAN
GET TO IT EVERY DAY.
STEFAN: I'D LIKE TO.
I'M NOT SURE I CAN.
LAURA: THEN MAYBE I CAN HELP
YOU.
MAYBE THAT'S HOW I'LL REPAY
YOU FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL THINGS
YOU'VE DONE FOR ME.
I'M GOING TO REMIND YOU
OF HOW HAPPY YOU CAN BE.
I'M GOING TO DO EVERYTHING I CAN
TO KEEP YOU THAT WAY.

EMILY: I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT
98 DEGREES GAVE ME THEIR
AUTOGRAPH.
WHEN YOU ASKED, I THOUGHT I WAS
GOING TO HAVE A HEART ATTACK.
JUAN: WELL, THEY WERE NICE
GUYS.
I FIGURED IT WAS WORTH A TRY.
ELIZABETH: JUAN, YOU DID HAVE
A LITTLE HELP.
JUAN: YEAH, YOU GUYS WERE
GREAT.
YOU FOLLOWED MY ORDERS REALLY
WELL.
EMILY: YEAH, YOU GUYS WERE
AWESOME.
BUT I SHOULD PROBABLY BE GETTING
HOME AND HAVING DINNER
WITH MY PARENTS.
OTHERWISE I WON'T BE ABLE TO GO
TONIGHT.
ARE YOU GUYS GOING?
ELIZABETH: OH, I'D LOVE TO,
BUT I HAVE TO WORK.
NIKOLAS: YEAH, I DO, TOO.
JUAN: I'LL BE THERE.
I'LL WAIT FOR YOU OUT FRONT.
EMILY: OK.
JUAN: CAN I WALK YOU HOME?
EMILY: I GUESS.
ELIZABETH: DON'T EVEN SAY IT.
NIKOLAS: IS IT THAT OBVIOUS?
ELIZABETH: I WORRY A LITTLE
TOO, OK?
BUT IT WAS JUAN'S IDEA TO STALL
98 DEGREES UNTIL EMILY GOT HERE,
AND THAT WAS A REALLY SWEET
THING TO DO.
NIKOLAS: IT DIDN'T TAKE HIM
LONG TO TAKE THE CREDIT FOR IT,
EITHER.
ELIZABETH: TELL ME THE TRUTH.
WAS THAT YOUR FIRST AUTOGRAPH
YOU'VE EVER ASKED FOR?
NIKOLAS: YEAH, I FELT LIKE
AN IDIOT.
BUT, HEY, IT WAS FOR A GOOD
CAUSE, I GUESS.
ELIZABETH: YOU ARE SUCH
A WONDERFUL FRIEND.

SONNY: SORRY FOR JUMPING ALL
OVER YOU WHEN YOU WALKED IN.
JASON: IT'S OK.
SONNY: YOU THINK MICHAEL
UNDERSTOOD ANYTHING WHEN
YOU TOLD HIM?
JASON: YEAH.
I JUST HOPE HE DOESN'T MISS ME
TOO MUCH.
OR REMEMBER ME FOR TOO LONG.
SONNY: YOU WERE RIGHT,
YOU KNOW.
IT'S --
IT'S GOOD TO DO IT NOW.
I MEAN, YOU KNOW, THAT WAY,
YOU KNOW, IF YOU'D WAITED,
IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WORSE.
JASON: YEAH.
I WALKED AWAY FROM MY SON.
I TOLD HIM I COULDN'T SEE HIM
ANYMORE, AND I KNEW -- I KNEW IT
WOULD HURT.
I KNEW IT WOULD FEEL LIKE THIS.
I'VE LOST PEOPLE BEFORE,
BUT THIS IS THE WORST.
HE MEANT MORE THAN ANYTHING
TO ME.
SONNY: I DON'T KNOW IF THIS
IS GOING TO HELP, BUT YOU'LL
NEVER HURT THIS BAD.
LIKE IT OR NOT, YOU KNOW,
YOU'LL LEARN.
AND MAYBE NEXT TIME,
YOU'LL GUARD YOUR HEART A LITTLE
MORE.
YOU'LL NEVER LOVE AS OPENLY
OR COMPLETELY.
YOU'LL NEVER GIVE ANYONE
WHAT YOU GAVE YOUR SON.
JASON: YEAH.
WELL, AS LONG AS IT'S ME WHO'S
HURTING.
AND NOT MICHAEL.
AS LONG AS HE NEVER FEELS
ANYTHING LIKE THIS.
IT'S OK.

[KNOCK ON DOOR]
JOHNNY: MIKE CORBIN.
MIKE: THANKS, JOHNNY.
HEY, YOU KNOW, I WAS WALKING
BY AQUISTA'S THIS AFTERNOON.
I LOOKED IN THE WINDOW
AND THEY HAD THE MOST INCREDIBLE
LOOKING CANNOLIS.
SO, I WENT IN TO BUY ONE,
AND I CAME OUT WITH A WHOLE BOX.
HERE, THOSE ARE FOR HANNAH.
SONNY: I DON'T KNOW HOW
YOU DO IT, MIKE.
YOU MUST HAVE A SPECIAL GIFT.
MIKE: DO WHAT?
SONNY: SHOW UP AT THE WRONG
TIME WITH THE WRONG IDEA.
YOUR RECORD IS VERY IMPRESSIVE.
MIKE: WHAT HAPPENED?
SONNY: NOTHING.
MIKE: DON'T LEAVE ME OUT
AGAIN, SONNY.
I WANT TO KNOW.
SONNY: JASON GAVE UP
HIS RIGHTS TO MICHAEL.
MIKE: THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE.
SONNY: HE SIGNED THE PAPERS.
A.J.'S THE ONLY FATHER MICHAEL'S
GOT.
MIKE: BUT TO GIVE UP HIS SON?
WHY WOULD HE DO THAT?
SONNY: HE FELT IT WOULD GET
WORSE.
IN THE LONG RUN, MICHAEL WOULD
SUFFER.
MIKE: HOW IS HE?
SONNY: LOST, MISERABLE.
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?
IT GOT ME --
GOT ME THINKING ABOUT YOU.
MIKE: MY SITUATION WAS
ENTIRELY DIFFERENT.
SONNY: WAS IT?
BECAUSE I GOT TO TELL
YOU SOMETHING, YOU KNOW.
AFTER WATCHING JASON
FALL APART OVER WALKING AWAY
FROM HIS SON, I'VE BEEN SITTING
HERE THINKING TO MYSELF,
YOU KNOW --
DID YOU --
DID YOU HAVE A REASON
TO LEAVE ME?
DID IT HURT YOU LIKE
IT'S HURTING JASON?
OR DID YOU JUST CLOSE THE DOOR
AND NOT LOOK BACK?

JAKE: ALMOST DONE?
JASON: WHY?
JAKE: WELL, THE PLACE WILL BE
SWARMING WITH GROUPIES SOON.
THEY MAY PUT YOU OFF YOUR GAME.
JASON: DO I HAVE TIME
FOR ANOTHER BEER?
JAKE: SURE, I'LL GET IT
FOR YOU.

EMILY: I'M GOING TO GO TALK
TO MY BROTHER.
JUAN: I'LL GET US A TABLE.
EMILY: IT'LL BE JUST
THE THREE OF US -- YOU,
ME, AND MICHAEL.
WE'LL GET UP REAL EARLY,
WE'LL PACK A LUNCH, AND WE'LL GO
TO THE BEACH.
DON'T WORRY, HE WON'T GET BURNT.
WE'LL BRING LOTS OF SUNSCREEN.
JASON: I THOUGHT SOMEONE
MIGHT HAVE TOLD YOU.
I CAN'T SEE MICHAEL.
EMILY: WHAT?
JASON: I GAVE UP MY RIGHTS
TO HIM.
I'M OUT OF HIS LIFE FOR GOOD.
EMILY: JASON --
JASON: A.J. AND I HATE EACH
OTHER.
I'VE TRIED TO GET ALONG
WITH HIM, BUT I CAN'T.
I DON'T WANT MICHAEL GROWING UP
WITH THAT, EMILY.
IT WON'T BE HEALTHY FOR HIM.
EMILY: BUT MICHAEL NEEDS YOU.
JASON: HE NEEDS TO BE HAPPY.
AND THAT WASN'T GOING TO HAPPEN
THE WAY THINGS WERE GOING.
EMILY: I DON'T BELIEVE THIS.
IF ANYBODY SHOULD BE GIVING UP
MICHAEL, IT SHOULD BE A.J.
JASON: WELL, HE WON'T.
YOU KNOW HE WON'T.
NO, IT'S GOING TO BE BETTER THIS
WAY.
MICHAEL'S GOING TO HAVE ONE
HOME, ONE FAMILY, NO CONFUSION.
EMILY: NO, IT'S NOT GOING
TOE BETTER THIS WAY.
IT'S GOING TO BE TERRIBLE.
MICHAEL'S HEART IS GOING TO BE
BROKEN AND SO IS YOURS.

ELIZABETH: HEY.
NIKOLAS: HI.
ELIZABETH: I THOUGHT YOU HAD
TO WORK LATE.
NIKOLAS: YEAH, I GOT OF
EARLIER THAN I THOUGHT.
IS THERE ANY CHICKEN LEFT?
ELIZABETH: NO.
BUT THE FISH SANDWICHES ARE
REALLY GOOD.
NIKOLAS: FISH SANDWICH, OK.
ALL RIGHT, I'LL HAVE ONE.
AND AFTER I'M DONE, I CAN GIVE
YOU A RIDE HOME.
ELIZABETH: PERFECT.
NIKOLAS: UNLESS YOU WANT
TO LEAVE EARLY AND GO SEE
THE NEW BAND AT JAKE'S?
ELIZABETH: OH, YOU KNOW WHAT?
I HAVE LEFT EARLY FOR THE PAST
TWO NIGHTS IN A ROW, AND TAMMY'S
BEEN REALLY NICE, BUT I DON'T
WANT TO ASK HER AGAIN.
NIKOLAS: ALL RIGHT.
I UNDERSTAND.
IS THERE ANY SOUP LEFT?
BECAUSE I DON'T THINK THAT
NDWICH IS GOING TO FILL ME UP.
ELIZABETH: YEAH, WE HAVE
CREAM OF BROCCOLI.
NIKOLAS: OH.
ELIZABETH: NIKOLAS,
IT'S GOOD.
NIKOLAS: NO, NO, NO, THANKS.
ELIZABETH: I'LL THUMB-WRESTLE
YOU FOR IT.
NIKOLAS: YOU'LL WHAT?
ELIZABETH: IF I WIN, YOU EAT
THE SOUP.
IF YOU WIN, YOU GET A FREE DRINK
WITH YOUR MEAL.
NIKOLAS: OH, ALL RIGHT.
WHY DON'T I JUST HAVE A SALAD
AND FORGET ABOUT THE WHOLE
THING?
ELIZABETH: YOU DON'T KNOW HOW
TO THUMB WRESTLE, DO YOU,
PRINCE?
NIKOLAS: WELL, NO.
NO, MY TUTORS DIDN'T GET AROUND
TO THAT.
ELIZABETH: OK, I'LL SHOW YOU.
GIVE ME YOUR HAND.
WATCH.
YOU GO LIKE THIS.
YOU GO ONE, TWO, THREE,
FOUR, I DECLARE A THUMB WAR --
NIKOLAS: WHAT?
ELIZABETH: AND THEN YOU TRY
TO PIN THE OTHER PERSON'S THUMB
DOWN.
LIKE THIS. YOU SEE?
NIKOLAS: WELL, WAIT --
I DIDN'T EVEN SEE THE START.
ELIZABETH: OK, OK,
ARE YOU READY NOW?
NIKOLAS: YEAH, I'M READY.
LET'S GO.
ELIZABETH: GO ONE,
TWO, THREE, FOUR, I DECLARE
A THUMB WAR.
NIKOLAS: SEE, I GOT --
ELIZABETH: NO, NO,
NO, NO, WAIT.
YOU HAVE TO HOLD IT DOWN
FOR THREE SECONDS BEFORE IT'S
OFFICIAL.
NIKOLAS: WELL, YOU DIDN'T SAY
THAT.
ELIZABETH: WELL, IT'S A WAR.
GO.
BOTH: ONE, TWO, THREE,
FOUR, I DECLARE A THUMB WAR.
KATHERINE: NIKOLAS, I THOUGHT
I MIGHT FIND YOU HERE.
AREN'T YOU SUPPOSED TO BE
AT WORK?

JAX: CREATING ANOTHER
MASTERPIECE?
CHLOE: I WAS INSPIRED
BY THE MOONLIGHT.
JAX: VERY DRAMATIC.
CHLOE: IT'S MY WEDDING DRESS.
JAX: DO YOU ENJOY DESIGNING
FOR YOURSELF?
CHLOE: EVERYTHING I DO IS
FOR MYSELF.
I LAY IT OUT EXACTLY THE WAY I'D
LIKE IT, AND THEN I ADAPT IT
AS A LAST STEP FOR MY CLIENT.
JAX: IT'S AN INTERESTING
APPROACH.
CHLOE: I'VE DONE IT THAT WAY
SINCE I STARTED.
JAX: WHEN WAS THAT?
CHLOE: WHEN I WAS 8,
I STARTED CUTTING PICTURES OUT
OF FASHION MAGAZINES AND FILING
THEM IN SHOEBOXES UNDER MY OWN
SPECIAL CATEGORIES -- "MIGHT
WEAR," "WOULD WEAR,"
AND "WOULDN'T BE CAUGHT
DEAD IN."
JAX: I'M SURE YOU WERE MORE
THAN FAIR.
CHLOE: NO, ACTUALLY I THINK
I WAS COMPLETELY UNREASONABLE.
BUT 8-YEAR-OLD GIRLS CAN BE THAT
WAY.
THEN WHEN I WAS 10,
I STARTED DOING SKETCHES
OF MY OWN, MY OWN DESIGNS.
I'D LOOK AT A LEAF AND SEE
THE PATTERN FOR A SUMMER SUIT.
OR A SEASHELL MIGHT BE
A COCKTAIL DRESS WITH RIBBING
IN THE SKIRT.
I DID FORMALWEAR, SPORTSWEAR,
CASUAL DRESSES, BASKETBALL
UNIFORMS, ANYTHING,
EVERYTHING, YOU NAME IT.
AND THEN I HAD A BOOK THAT WAS
ABOUT THIS THICK FULL
OF MY DESIGNS, AND I GOT A JOB
APPRENTICING FOR A MAJOR
DESIGNER.
AND WITHIN A YEAR, I GOT A LINE
ALL OF MY OWN.
JAX: OBVIOUSLY YOU WERE
A NATURAL.
CHLOE: HE WAS A GOOD TEACHER
AND A GOOD FRIEND.
BUT MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE,
I WANTED TO OPEN UP MY OWN
COMPANY.
I REMEMBER THE DAY THAT
WE OPENED.
MY NAME WAS ON THE DOOR,
AND I JUST STOOD THERE,
STARING AT IT.
JAX: WHAT'S THE MATTER?
CHLOE: BUILDING CHLOE MORGAN
DESIGNS WAS THE MOST EXCITING
EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE.
LOSING IT WOULD BE LIKE LOSING
PART OF MYSELF.
JAX: ONLY IF YOU LET IT.
CHLOE: HAVE YOU HAD
EXPERIENCE WITH THAT?
JAX: I SPENT A GOOD PART
OF MY LIFE BUILDING
A FAMILY-OWNED COMPANY.
J&J JACKS OF ALASKA.
CHLOE: HOW HARD WAS THAT
TO LOSE?
JAX: I HAD OTHER LOSSES THAT
WERE MORE IMPORTANT, BUT I TRIED
TO SEE REBUILDING AS
A CHALLENGE.
CHLOE: YOU MUST HAVE A VERY
RESILIENT NATURE.
JAX: NO LESS THAN YOURS.
LOOK, IF FOR SOME REASON
YOUR MARRIAGE TO NED FALLS
THROUGH AND YOU LOSE
YOUR COMPANY TO GERTRUDE,
THEN DON'T SEE THAT AS BEING
DEFEATED.
I MEAN, SHE CAN TAKE
YOUR EMPLOYEES, YOUR CLIENTS,
EVEN YOUR NAMEND REPUTATION.
BUT IF YOU'RE STRONG,
WHICH YOU ARE,
NO ONE CAN TAKE AWAY YOUR DREAM.

KATHERINE: DECEPTION'S NEW
AFTERSHAVE IS AN IMPORTANT
LAUNCH FOR US, NIKOLAS,
AND IF -- WELL, IF YOU WEREN'T
GOING TO GIVE IT YOUR BEST,
MAYBE YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TAKEN
IT ON.
NIKOLAS: YOU HAVEN'T SPOKEN
TO PHYLLIS YET TONIGHT,
HAVE YOU?
KATHERINE: NO. WHY?
NIKOLAS: BECAUSE I PUT
THE ENTIRE THING ON YOUR DESK
BEFORE I LEFT.
KATHERINE: YOU FINISHED IT?
NIKOLAS: YEAH.
OTHERWISE I'D STILL BE THERE.
KATHERINE: I'M SORRY THEN.
I JUST HAD AN AWFUL DAY,
AND I ASSUMED THAT THIS WAS PART
OF IT.
NIKOLAS: THAT'S OK.
FORGET IT.
KATHERINE: WELL, HOW CAN
I MAKE IT UP TO YOU?
HOW ABOUT WE GO TO DINNER,
JUST THE TWO OF US?
ELIZABETH: ACTUALLY,
NIKOLAS AND I ALREADY HAVE
PLANS.
HE'S TAKING ME TO JAKE'S AFTER
I GET OFF OF WORK.
KATHERINE: HAVEN'T YOU BEEN
TO TWO OTHER CONCERTS THERE THIS
WEEK?
NIKOLAS: IT'S A FUN PLACE.
I ENJOY IT.
KATHERINE: WELL, I WAS HOPING
THAT WE COULD WORK ON
OUR HOLIDAY CAMPAIGN, BUT WHO AM
I TO INTERFERE WITH YOUR MUSICAL
NEEDS?
NIKOLAS: WELL, YOU TOLD ME
NOT TO HIDE IN MY WORK.
ALL I'M DOING IS TAKING
YOUR ADVICE.
KATHERINE: WELL,
NOTHING MAKES ME HAPPIER THAN
YOU TAKING CARE OF YOURSELF,
NIKOLAS.
HAVE FUN.

MIKE: ARE YOU LOOKING
FOR ANOTHER APOLOGY, SONNY?
SONNY: I WANT TO KNOW WHAT
YOU TOLD YOURSELF WHEN
YOU WALKED OUT ON MY MOTHER
AND ME.
DID YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT WE'D
BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU,
OR WAS THIS ALL ABOUT WHAT WAS
GOOD FOR YOU?
MIKE: I TOLD MYSELF THAT
MY LEAVING WAS THE BEST THING
FOR MY FAMILY, BUT I KNEW IT
WASN'T TRUE.
SONNY: THEN WHY?
MIKE: AFTER NAM, I FELT
THE RESPONSIBILITIES WERE TOO
BIG.
I FELT I WAS FAILING
AS A HUSBAND AND AS A FATHER.
AND I REMEMBER ONE TIME WHEN
I CAME BACK, YOU ASKED ME
IF I WAS GOING TO STAY,
AND I SAID, "FROM NOW ON,
KID, YOU'RE GOING TO KNOW
EXACTLY WHERE TO FIND ME."
AND YOU LOOKED AT ME LIKE I WAS
CHRISTMAS MORNING,
YOUR BIRTHDAY, AND THE
FOURTH OF JULY ALL ROLLED
INTO ONE.
AND FOR A MOMENT,
I ACTUALLY BELIEVED IT.
AND TWO WEEKS LATER,
I WALKED OUT OF THE HOUSE BEFORE
YOU EVEN WOKE UP, AND I DIDN'T
COME BACK FOR A YEAR.
I HATED HURTING YOU, SONNY.
SO MUCH SO THAT THE ONLY WAY
I COULD LIVE WITH IT WAS HURT
MYSELF.
I NEVER STOPPED DESPISING MYSELF
OR -- OR MISSING YOU.
YOU KNOW, I USED TO HAVE THIS
CRAZY DREAM THAT SOMEDAY I'D HIT
THE DAILY DOUBLE AND I WOULD
COME BACK TO THE OLD
NEIGHBORHOOD IN A LIMO
AND THE THREE OF US WOULD DRIVE
OFF INTO THE HAPPILY HEREAFTER.
SONNY: LIMOS WEREN'T WHAT
I NEEDED.
MIKE: I KNOW.
LOOK, I CAN'T CHANGE WHAT
HAPPENED BACK THEN.
ALL I CAN DO NOW IS TRY TO MAKE
UP FOR IT.
SONNY: IT'S TOO LATE.

EMILY: I KNOW THAT SHARING
MICHAEL WITH A.J. HAS BEEN HARD.
YOU GUYS CAN'T STAND TO BE
IN THE SAME ROOM TOGETHER,
YET YOU'RE PARENTING THE SAME
CHILD.
IS THAT A REASON TO GIVE UP?
JASON: I DIDN'T.
EMILY: WHAT WOULD
YOU CALL IT?
JASON: DOING WHAT'S BEST
FOR MICHAEL.
EMILY: ISN'T THAT SOMETHING
THAT YOU HATE?
PEOPLE MAKING DECISIONS
FOR MICHAEL BEFORE CONSIDERING
WHAT HE MIGHT WANT?
JASON: IT HAD TO BE DONE,
EMILY.
HE'S TOO YOUNG TO UNDERSTAND.
EMILY: HE KNOWS THAT HE LOVES
YOU, JASON.
NOW YOU'RE ABANDONING HIM.
MR. SOREL: WHAT'S THE MATTER,
MORGAN?
TOO BUSY TO SAY HELLO?
JASON: GET OUT OF MY WAY.
MR. SOREL: WHAT?
JASON: MOVE NOW.
MR. SOREL: YOU'RE
ORDERING ME?
YOU'RE NOTHING MORE THAN SONNY
CORINTHOS' EX-ERRAND BOY.
JASON: I'D RATHER BE SONNY'S
EX-ANYTHING THAN BE WHAT YOU ARE
TO MORENO.

LAURA: WELL, YOU SHOULD BE
PROUD OF YOURSELF, MANDY.
YOU'VE MADE A LOT OF PROGRESS.
MANDY: I'VE BEEN HELPING
A NEIGHBOR WATCH HER KIDS.
IT FEELS GOOD TO DO SOMETHING
POSITIVE.
LAURA: IT ALWAYS DOES.
SAME TIME NEXT WEEK?
MANDY: YEAH.
THANKS, MRS. SPENCER.
LAURA: YOU'RE WELCOME.
BYE-BYE.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
LAURA: COME IN.
FAISON: MRS. SPENCER?
LAURA: YES.
FAISON: MY NAME IS
ANTON GARDENER.
I WOULD APPRECIATE IT
IF YOU HAVE A MINUTE OR TWO.

JAX: YOU KNOW, IT MUST BE
COMFORTING GROWING UP
WITH A TALENT LIKE YOURS.
CHLOE: WHY?
JAX: WELL, YOU DON'T NEED
ANYONE ELSE TO USE IT.
IF YOU FELT LIKE SKETCHING,
ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS PICK UP
A PAD.
CHLOE: IS THAT HOW
YOU SAW ME?
ALONE, SKETCHING TILL MY LITTLE
FINGERS GAVE OUT?
JAX: AS I REMEMBER, YOU WERE
ALSO A CHAMPION SWIMMER.
CHLOE: VERY GOOD.
I HAD ONE OTHER PASSION THAT
I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE AWARE OF.
JAX: WHAT WAS THAT?
CHLOE: HOPSCOTCH.
JAX: OH.
CHLOE: I PLAYED SO MUCH THAT
I PROBABLY SPENT MORE TIME
ON ONE FOOT THAN TWO.
IN FACT --
JAX: ARE YOU GOING TO PLAY
NOW?
CHLOE: NO.
WE ARE.
JAX: I'LL WATCH.
CHLOE: OH, WHAT'S THE MATTER?
AFRAID YOU'LL GET HURT?
JAX: OH, NO.
I JUST DON'T WANT YOU TO BE
EMBARRASSED EN I WIN.
CHLOE: OH!
YOU ARE ON.
JAX: MADAM.

ALEXIS: DID YOU EVER THINK
OF GETTING YOUR HANDS LICENSED?
THEY'RE REALLY ONE OF YOUR MOST
VALUABLE ASSETS.
NED: THANK YOU.
ALEXIS: OW. OH.
NED: OH.
I TELL YOU, IT WAS NICE BEING
ALONE WITH Y AGAIN.
I'VE MISSED IT.
ALEXIS: ME, TOO.
JAX AND I ARE SUPPOSED TO BE
ANNULLED BY NOW, AND IF THIS
GETS TO BE TOO MUCH FOR YOU,
I EXPECT YOU TO SAY SOMETHING.
NED: NO, NO.
WE AGREED TO HELP CHLOE SAVE
HER COMPANY.
AND IF STAYING MARRIED TO JAX
HELPS, WELL, THEN
I'LL GO FOR IT.
GRANTED, I WANT TO CLOBBER JAX
WITH A LAMP EVERY TIME
HE TOUCHES YOU.
BUT AS LONG AS WE HAVE MOMENTS
LIKE WE HAD, I'LL BE FINE.
ALEXIS: THIS SITUATION IS
GOING TO END EVENTUALLY.
AND WHEN IT DOES, YOU AND I CAN
GO BACK TO DOING EXACTLY WHAT
WE WERE DOING BEFORE.
NED: MM-HMM, WHICH I BELIEVE
WAS RIGHT --
ALEXIS: OW, OW.
OH, AH --
NED: THERE.
THERE?
ALEXIS: OH.
MMM.
OH.

STEFAN: WELL.
I TRUST YOUR VISIT WITH LAURA
WAS ENJOYABLE.
ALTHOUGH, IT WOULDN'T HAVE
SURPRISED ME IF I HAD FOUND
YOU SMOTHERED WITH A PILLOW.
YOU KNOW, IT'S A SHAME
YOU TWO DON'T GET ALONG
CONSIDERING I PLAN TO MARRY
HER AS SOON AS I CAN.
YOU HEARD ME CORRECTLY.
AND THAT WILL MEAN
THAT YOUR SITUATION WILL CHANGE.
YOUR TIME HERE COULD BE LIMITED.
YOU SEE, ONCE LAURA AND I ARE
MARRIED, SHE WILL MOST LIKELY
WANT YOU MOVED TO A CONVALESCENT
FACILITY.
NOT THAT IT WILL MAKE ANY
DIFFERENCE.
FOR ALL PRACTICAL PURPOSES,
YOU'VE ALREADY CEASED TO EXIST.

FAISON: IT'S ABOUT MY NEPHEW.
HE'S 13 YEARS OLD, BRIGHT,
TALENTED, BUT YET REBELLIOUS.
HE HAD A DISAGREEMENT
WITH HIS PARENTS OVER SOME
FAMILY ISSUES AND DECIDED
TO STRIKE OUT ON HIS OWN.
LAURA: WELL, I'LL BE HAPPY
TO SEE HIM.
IF YOU'D LIKE TO MAKE
AN APPOINTMENT WITH ME,
MR. GARDENER, IF I --
FAISON: WELL, YEAH,
THAT WOULD BE NICE,
BUT THE PROBLEM IS THAT
HE DISAPPEARED.
AND IT PAINS ME TO THINK WHAT
MIGHT HAVE BECOME OF HIM.
LAURA: I'M VERY SORRY
FOR YOUR LOSS.
BUT WHY HAVE YOU COME TO ME?
FAISON: TO GIVE YOU THIS.
IT'S A DONATION TO YOUR CAUSE.
IT'S MADE IN THE NAME
OF MY NEPHEW AND ALL OTHER
CHILDREN LOST TO THEIR PARENTS.
PLEASE.
LAURA: IT'S INCREDIBLY
GENEROUS.
FAISON: WELL, I'M SURE YOU'LL
KNOW HOW TO PUT IT TO GOOD USE.
LAURA: YES, I WILL.
DO YOU HAVE A NUMBER WHERE I CAN
REACH YOU OR SOME WAY TO CONTACT
YOU?
I'D LIKE TO KEEP YOU POSTED
ON HOW THE MONEY HAS BEEN
ALLOCATED.
FAISON: DON'T WORRY ABOUT
THAT.
I'LL BE AROUND.
BUT I WON'T KEEP YOU.
I'M SURE YOU HAVE LOTS OF WORK
TO DO.
I HOPE THE CHILDREN IN THIS TOWN
REALIZE HOW LUCKY THEY ARE
TO HAVE A WOMAN LIKE YOU AROUND.

MIKE: ALL RIGHT, I KNOW HOW
THE REST OF THIS GOES.
I'LL SAVE YOU THE TROUBLE
AND THROW MYSELF OUT.
SONNY: THAT'S NOT WHAT
I MEANT.
SONNY: YOU LOVE ME.
I GET THAT.
AND I APPRECIATE THE WAY
YOU TRY, EVEN THOUGH THE THINGS
YOU DO USUALLY ARE OPPOSITE
OF WHAT'S APPROPRIATE.
I DON'T NEED A FATHER.
I GREW UP WITHOUT ONE.
AND WHEN YOU TRY TO GO BACK
THERE, WHEN YOU TRY TO DO THINGS
FOR ME THAT YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE
YEARS AGO, THAT'S WHAT MAKES ME
CRAZY.
THAT'S WHAT IT'S TOO LATE FOR.
MIKE: WHAT DO YOU WANT,
SONNY?
SONNY: MAYBE JUST A FRIEND,
YOU KNOW.
THAT'S WHAT I --
MIKE: THAT I
CAN BE.
SONNY: YOU KNOW,
YOU'RE THE ONLY PERSON I KNOW
THAT WOULD GET AN ENTIRE BOX
OF ONE DESSERT.
MIKE: WELL, WHY DON'T YOU TRY
ONE FIRST BEFORE YOU START
COMPLAINING, HUH?
SONNY: I MEAN, WHAT --
WHAT KIND OF CANNOLI IS THIS?
THERE'S NOTHING IN IT.
MIKE: THEN DON'T EAT IT,
ALL RIGHT?
I TOLD YOU, I BROUGHT THESE
FOR HANNAH.

MR. SOREL: MORGAN, YOU MADE
A BIG MISTAKE BACK THERE.
NO ONE TURNS THEIR BACK ON ME.
NO ONE.
YOU LISTENING?
GET UP.
GET UP.
EMILY: JASON, NO!

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

FAISON: WHAT A RELIEF TO FIND
YOU ALIVE.

MAC: I'M SURE YOU'RE MOTHER
IS JUST FINE.

FELICIA: I JUST DON'T
UNDERSTAND WHAT'S TAKING HIM
SO LONG.
HE KNOWS WE'RE IN OYSTER BAY.

LUKE: SO WHAT?
