LAURA: TONY?
TONY: HEY.
LAURA: HI.
YOU GOT A MINUTE?
TONY: SURE.
LAURA: I NEED SOME INPUT.
TONY: IS THERE SOMETHING
WRONG?
LAURA: WELL, IT'S ABOUT
THE OUTREACH PROGRAM.
WE RECEIVED A HUGE CONTRIBUTION
TODAY.
TONY: WELL, THAT'S TERRIFIC.
WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
LAURA: THE DONOR.
HE MADE MY SKIN CRAWL.

FAISON: WHAT A RELIEF TO FIND
YOU ALIVE.
I WASN'T QUITE SURE WHEN
YOU VANISHED FROM YOUR HOSTAL
BED.
JUST TAKE IT EASY.
TAKE IT EASY.
THIS HOUSE WAS BUILT
FOR INVISIBLE GUESTS.
I KNOW.
I USED TO LIVE HERE.
SEE, THE TUNNELS ALLOWED ME
IN UNNOTICED, AND I'LL BE JUST
AS DISCREET WHEN I SLIP OUT.
SO HOW ARE YOU?
YOU'RE SO PALE.
EVEN MORE THAN WHEN YOU WERE
AT THE HOSPITAL.
DON'T YOU LIKE YOUR NEW
SURROUNDINGS?
I MUST ADMIT I --
I MISS YOUR BRILLIANTLY CRIMINAL
WIT NOW I'M LEFT TO MY OWN
DEVICE.
BUT I STILL CONSIDER
YOU MY PARTNER, SO I'LL KEEP
YOU UP TO DATE AS OUR LITTLE
PLAN UNFOLDS.
TODAY, THERE'S BEEN A
REMARKABLE DEVELOPMENT.
AS A MATTER OF FACT --
[NOISE]

LUKE: WELL, WE'VE GOT WHAT'S
LEFT OF THIS LITTLE SUCKER.
AND WHEN IT'S GONE, WE GOT THAT
LITTLE SUCKER.
BUT WHEN THIS IS GONE --
FELICIA: MAC WILL BE HERE
BY THEN.
I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT'S
TAKING HIM SO LONG.
LUKE: WELL, MAYBE
HIS PERSONAL PSYCHIC STEERED HIM
DIRECTLY TO A CRYPT,
BUT INCORRECTLY TO GRANT'S TOMB.
FELICIA: HE KNOWS WE'RE
IN OYSTER BAY.
LUKE: SO WHAT?
HE THINKS WE MIGHT BE IN HERE?
FELICIA: THE QUARTERMAINE
CRYPT IS NOT SUCH A STRETCH.
COULD BE WORSE.
WE COULD BE TRAPPED IN ANOTHER
DIMENSION, OR WE COULD BE
TRAPPED ON SOME ALIEN CRAFT.
BUT IF WE WERE, MAC WOULD
FIND US.
TRUST ME.
HE ALWAYS DOES.
LUKE: COOL.
OF COURSE.
FELICIA: ALWAYS.
LUKE: GREAT.

MAC: THIS IS MY WIFE WE'RE
LOOKING FOR.
SHE'S BEEN MISSING FOR MORE THAN
24 HOURS.
WE KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THE TIME
ELEMENT IS.
YES, I WILL.
I WILL GIVE FELICIA THAT MESSAGE
AS SOON AS SHE CALLS IN.
NO PROBLEM.
YES, THEY ARE.
BOTH OF THEM, RIGHT HERE.
OK.
KEEP ME ADVISED.
GEORGIE: MOM DIDN'T CALL YET?
MAC: WELL, SHE'S PROBABLY NOT
NEAR A PHONE.
MAXIE: WHAT ABOUT
HER CELL PHONE?
MAC: OH, YOU KNOW HOW
SHE ALWAYS MISPLACES IT.
MAXIE: SO YOU'RE NOT WORRIED?
MAC: HEY, DO I LOOK WORRIED?
HUH?
COME HERE.
HOW ABOUT A HUG?
NOW, I'M SURE YOUR MOTHER
IS JUST FINE.

EMILY: JASON, NO!
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
JUAN: LOSING IT, THAT'S WHAT.
HE JUMPED THAT GUY.
AND THEN WHEN I TRIED TO BREAK
IT UP, HE TURNED ON ME.
EMILY: HE'S NOT JUST SOME
GUY, JUAN.
I TOLD YOU THAT LAST NIGHT.
HE'S AN ENEMY OF MY BROTHER'S
AND SONNY'S.
JUAN: IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE
IT'S THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
EMILY: LOOK, THIS IS MORE
COMPLICATED THAN YOU THINK.
JUAN: FINE. WHATEVER.
YOU KNOW, THE SHOW'S GOING
TO START.
WE SHOULD GET BACK TO OUR SEATS.
JASON: HOLD IT.
YOU'RE NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

JUAN: YOU'RE SPEAKING TO ME?
JASON: YOU KNOW WHAT?
THAT THAT YOU'RE SO READY
TO FIGHT FOR, HE WORKS
FOR A RIVAL OF SONNY'S NAMED
MORENO.
EMILY: I EXPLAINED YOU THIS
THE OTHER NIGHT.
JASON: HIS NAME IS SOREL.
HE'S BAD NEWS.
IF YOU CAN'T TAKE MY WORD,
YOU ASK SONNY.
JUAN: "ASK SONNY."
RIGHT.
THAT'LL CLEAR EVERYTHING UP,
LIKE SONNY'S SO STRAIGHT
WITH ME.
I COUNT FOR NOTHING WITH SONNY.
AND WHY SHOULD I?
HE'S GOT HIS MAIN MAN.
JASON: YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT
YOU' DEALING WITH.
JUAN: THAT'S RIGHT, I'M OUT
OF THE LOOP.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
IT'S TOTALLY OK WITH ME.
SONNY AND YOU WANT TO FREEZE ME
OUT, WELL, GUESS WHAT.
IT WORKS BOTH WAYS.
EMILY: JUAN, YOU SHOULD
LISTEN TO HIM.
JUAN: I HEARD WHAT HE SAID.
ARE YOU COMING?
JASON: EMILY.
SOREL KNOWS WHO YOU ARE NOW.
I CAN'T LET YOU GO BACK IN THERE
WITH HIM.
JUAN: THIS IS BULL.
JASON: COME ON, I'M TAKING
YOU HOME.
JUAN: HE CALLS THE SHOTS?
EMILY: SORRY.
JUAN: YOU'VE GOT TO BE
KIDDING.
EMILY: I'LL SEE YOU
LATER, OK?
MR. SOREL: HEY, KID.
COME HERE.
I LIKE THE WAY YOU HANDLE
YOURSELF.
JUAN: THIS IS THE SECOND TIME
YOU'VE SAID THAT.
MR. SOREL: YEAH, BUT THIS
TIME I'M REALLY IMPRESSED.
HERE YOU GO.
JUAN: WELL, I CAN IMPRESS
YOU ON A REGULAR BASIS.
THING IS I'M LOOKING FOR A JOB.
MR. SOREL: DOING WHAT?
JUAN: I'M GOOD AT A LOT
OF THINGS.
MR. SOREL: A FEW OF THEM I'VE
ALREADY SEEN.
JUAN: I CATCH ON FAST.
RELIABLE.
HARD-WORKING YOUNG MAN EAGER
TO LEARN.
MR. SOREL: YOU KNOW WHAT
I DO?
JUAN: I'VE HEARD OPINIONS.
MR. SOREL: CHECK WITH ME
AFTER THE SHOW.
JUAN: GREAT.
I WILL.
ELIZABETH: I'M GLAD WE MADE
IT ON TIME.
NIKOLAS: I TOLD YOU WE WOULD.
JUAN: YEAH, NOT MUCH
OF A CHALLENGE IN A JAG.
ELIZABETH: WHERE'S EMILY?
JUAN: GONE.

LAURA: I KNOW.
I SHOULD PROBABLY BE OVERJOYED,
RIGHT?
I MEAN, THE PROGRAM NEEDS
FUNDING.
BUT THERE'S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT
THIS GARDENER CHARACTER THAT --
I DON'T KNOW.
TONY: WELL, YOU SAY
HIS NEPHEW DISAPPEARED.
MAYBE THE MAN'S JUST DEPRESSED.
LAURA: YEAH, BUT THAT'S IT,
ACTUALLY.
I DIDN'T FEEL ANY SADNESS,
AND HE DIDN'T SHOW ANY EMOTION
AT ALL.
TONY: WELL, EVERYONE HANDLES
THEIR GRIEF IN DIFFERENT SORT
OF WAYS.
DID YOU KNOW I WAS THE
POSTER CHILD FOR GRIEF
MISMANAGEMENT?
LAURA: BUT WERE YOU COLD
AND CUT OFF?
TONY: NO.
I WAS DEEPLY DERANGED
AND INAPPROPRIATE.
GUESS YOU MISSED MY SOLO ACT
AT THE NURSES BALL LAST YEAR.
WELL, I WAS RUDE AND IRRATIONAL
AND FLAT-OUT WRONG BECAUSE THERE
IS NO SUCH THING AS TAINTED
MONEY.
MONEY THAT HELPS PEOPLE IS
ALWAYS GOOD.
LAURA: BUT THIS GUY IS JUST
AS COLD AS ICE.
I MEAN, IT'S LIKE HE'S
AN ANDROID OR SOMETHING.
NOTHING ABOUT HIM SEEMS REAL.
TONY: SO DEPOSIT HIS CHECK.
IF IT DOESN'T BOUNCE, HIS MONEY
IS REAL ENOUGH TO TURN PEOPLE'S
LIVES AROUND.
LAURA: YOU THINK I'M BEING
SILLY, DON'T YOU?
TONY: WELL, I THINK IF WE HAD
TO GIVE A PERSONALITY TEST
TO EVERY PROSPECTIVE DONOR,
NONE OF OUR PROGRAMS WOULD EVER
GET FUNDED.
LAURA: I KNOW, I KNOW.
IT'S JUST THAT, YOU KNOW,
I DON'T WANT TO SEE THIS MAN
AGAIN.
TONY: WELL, IS HE THREATENING
TO MONITOR YOUR PROGRESS
OR SCRUTINIZING YOUR EXPENSES?
LAURA: NO.
TONY: IS HE ASKING
FOR CONSTANT REPORTS?
LAURA: NO.
AS A MATTER OF FACT,
HE WOULDN'T EVEN GIVE ME
AN ADDRESS.
TONY: GREAT EXCUSE FOR NOT
KEEPING IN TOUCH.
LAURA: OK.
FINE.
I'LL DEPOSIT THE CHECK.
I JUST -- I DON'T KNOW.
I HOPE THIS DOESN'T COME BACK
TO HAUNT ME.
TONY: HAUNT YOU HOW?
LAURA: WELL, I KNOW IT SOUNDS
CRAZY, OK?
BUT THIS MAN LEFT ME WITH A VERY
QUEASY FEELING.
TONY: THAT'S GOING TO GO AWAY
THE MINUTE YOU SEE A KID SIT
DOWN AT A BRAND-NEW COMPUTER
AND YOU WATCH HIS EYES LIGHT UP.
LAURA: HAS ANYONE EVER TOLD
YOU YOU HAVE VERY SOUND VALUES?
TONY: NOT SINCE I WENT CRAZY.
LAURA: WELL, YOU DO.
YOU ARE A WONDERFUL MAN.
YOU ALWAYS WERE, AND YOU STILL
ARE.
YOU KNOW, EVERYBODY MAKES
MISTAKES.
IT'S ABOUT TIME PEOPLE GOT OVER
YOURS.

TONY: HI.
BOBBIE: HEY, YOU TWO.
LAURA: HI.
WELL, THANK YOU.
YOU SAID EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED
TO HEAR.
TONY: OK.
WELL, I'VE GOT TO WORK A LATE
SHIFT AT THE HOSPITAL, AND I'VE
GOT MY BEEPER, SO YOU PAGE ME
IF YOU FEEL A RELAPSE COMING ON.
LAURA: OK. THANKS.
TONY: BYE.
BOBBIE: TONY?
YOU IN A RUSH?
TONY: NO.
BOBBIE: WHAT'S YOUR SCHEDULE
NEXT WEEK?
TONY: FLEXIBLE.
BOBBIE: GOOD, BECAUSE LUCAS
HAS A GAME.
TONY: I'LL BE THERE.
BOBBIE: EXCEPT I CAN'T
REMEMBER WHETHER IT'S TUESDAY
OR WEDNESDAY.
TONY: AH, YOU KNOW,
EITHER WAY, JUST COUNT ME IN.
BOBBIE: OK.
MAYBE YOU COULD STOP
BY THE HOUSE AFTERWARDS
AND ORDER A PIZZA OR SOMETHING.
TONY: I WOULD LOVE IT.
BOBBIE: LUCAS WOULD LOVE IT,
TOO.
TONY: THANK YOU, BOBBIE.
BOBBIE: I'LL GET BACK
TO YOU WHEN I HAVE ALL
THE DETAILS.
TONY: BYE.
LAURA: WOW.
HAVE I MISSED A FEW BEATS?
BOBBIE: IT HAPPENS.
LAURA: YOU'RE LNG TONY
SEE LUCAS AGAIN?
I'M AMAZED.
I MEAN, IN A GOOD WAY.
I THINK THAT LUCAS MUST BE
THRILLED.
BOBBIE: WELL, I LIKE SEEING
MY SON HAPPY.
AND I DON'T WANT ALL
OF MY PROBLEMS WITH TONY TO GET
IN THE WAY OF HIM HAVING
A RELATIONSHIP WITH A CHILD WHO
NEEDS HIM VERY MUCH.
LAURA: YEAH, I UNDERSTAND.
I DON'T WANT THAT FOR LULU,
EITH.

NIKOLAS: THANK YOU.
JUAN: I'VE GOT IT.

V: HI.
SIMON: HEY.
V: I AM ON AN UNBELIEVABLE
ROLL OF LUCK.
SIMON: LUCK HAS NOTHING TO DO
WITH IT.
DESTINY REIGNS SUPREME.
V: NO, DESTINY IS WHY
A WORLD-FAMOUS GROUP AGREED
TO PLAY IN PORT CHARLES.
SIMON: NO, NO, NO.
THAT WAS SHEER TALENT
ON YOUR PART.
YOU'RE TOO CHARMING TO RESIST.
V: OH, AND THE MERE FACT THAT
THEY WANTED TO TRY OUT NEW
MATERIAL IN SMALL CLUBS.
SIMON: OH, THERE ARE SMALL
CLUBS ALL OVER THE WORLD --
PARIS, MOROCCO, ABIDJAN.
YOU KNOW, AND THE FACT THEY'RE
HERE --
V: IS DESTINY.
SIMON: NO.
CHARISMA.
YOURS.
V: OK, FINE. FINE.
I ACCEPT THE COMPLIMENT.
SO, WHERE DOES DESTINY FIT IN?
YOUR WORD, NOT MINE.
SIMON: US.
WE MET UNDER IMPOSSIBLE
CIRCUMSTANCES ON ANOTHER SIDE
OF THE GLOBE, AND YET HERE
WE ARE TOGETHER.
IT WAS MEANT TO BE.
THAT WASN'T EXCESSIVE, WAS IT?
V: OVER THE TOP.
BUT FOR SOME STRANGE REASON,
I DON'T MIND.

JUAN: FOR YOU.
WAITRESS: THANK YOU.
ELIZABETH: THANKS.
JUAN: ANYBODY HUNGRY?
NIKOLAS: SO WHERE'S EMILY?
JUAN: LONG STORY.
SHORT VERSION -- EMILY'S BROTHER
SPOOKED HER OUT HER.
ELIZABETH: A.J.?
JUAN: JASON.
THEY CALL HIM A.J.?
WHAT DOES THAT STAND FOR,
ABSOLUTE JERK?
I MEAN, HE PICKS A FIGHT OUT
IN FRONT OF THE CLUB,
AND I BREAK IT UP, AND THEN
HE TRIES TO JUMP ME.
NIKOLAS: HMM. OH.
I THINK IF JASON TRIED TO JUMP
YOU, I DON'T THINK YOU'D BE HERE
RIGHT NOW.
JUAN: YEAH?
I WAS ABOUT TO TAKE HIM DOWN
UNTIL HIS SISTER SAVED HIS SORRY
BEHIND.
NIKOLAS: OH, WELL,
THAT'S ONE VERSION.
JUAN: EXCUSE ME?
NIKOLAS: WELL, FROM WHAT
I UNDERSTAND, JASON IS GENERALLY
REGARDED AS SOMEONE NOT TO BE
CROSSED.
JUAN: WELL, NEITHER AM I,
ALL RIGHT?
I MEAN, WHY DOES EMILY TREAT
JASON LIKE A GOD?
HE SAYS, "JUMP," SHE ASKS,
"HOW HIGH?"
HE SAYS, "LIT," AND SHE'S
GONE.
ELIZABETH: I'M SORRY.
WAS THAT A QUESTION?
JUAN: NO. A STATEMENT.
EMILY'S BROTHER'S A PUNK.
NIKOLAS: WELL, APPARENTLY,
HE FEELS THE SAME WAY ABOUT YOU.
ONE OF YOU MAY BE RIGHT.

JASON: SONNY, WE HAVE A JUAN
SITUATION, SO CALL ME AS SOON
AS YOU GET IN.
BYE.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
HANNAH: HI.
DO YOU HAVE A --
OH, MY GOD.
JASON: IT'S NO BIG DEAL.
HANNAH: WHAT HAPPENED?
JASON: I GOT INTO A FIGHT.
IT'S NOT AS BAD AS IT LOOKS.
HANNAH: YOU'RE CUT.
JASON: I'M FINE.
HANNAH: NO, IT NEEDS TO BE
CLEANED.
JASON: I'LL HANDLE IT.
HANNAH: DO YOU HAVE ANY
DISINFECTANT?
JASON: LOOK, THIS IS
REALLY --
HANNAH: LOOK, ARE YOU GOING
TO MAKE ME SEARCH FOR IT, OR ARE
YOU GOING TO TELL ME?
JASON: FIRST SHELF,
MEDICINE CABINET.
HANNAH: OK, BANDAGES,
GAUZE, COTTON?
JASON: I'M NOT GOING TO NEEDTHAT.
HANNAH: YES, YOU WILL.
BUT I'LL GIVE YOU MY WORD I'LL
DO MY BEST NOT TO MAKE IT HURT.

MAC: I FAXED THESE PHOTOS
TO OYSTER BAY HEADQUARTERS.
BUT WHEN YOU GET THERE,
PASS THEM AROUND.
TAGGERT: YOU GOT IT.
MAC: AND ALSO WHEN YOU GET
THERE, CHECK THE LOCAL LIBRARY.
AND NOT JUST THE SIGN-IN DESK,
TAGGERT.
CHECK THE STACKS, AS WELL.
FIND OUT WHO THE REGULARS ARE,
ALL RIGHT?
SEE IF ANYONE RECOGNIZES THAT
FACE.
TAGGERT: NOT A FACE ANYBODY'S
LIKELY TO FORGET, SIR.
MAC: LOOK, EVERY SLICE
OF MICROFILM, EVERY OLD
NEWSPAPER CLIP --
TAGGERT: IT WILL BE HANDLED,
SIR.
MAC: AND THE QUARTERMAINE
MANSION, ALL RIGHT?
COMB EVERY SQUARE INCH OF IT
DOWN TO THE LAST SQUIRREL'S
NEST.
TAGGERT: NO PROBLEM.
MAC: AND ALSO CANVASS
THE NEIGHBORHOOD, ALL RIGHT,
AND DIG IN IF YOU THINK
SOMEONE'S HOLDING BACK.
TAGGERT: WE'LL FIND HER, SIR.
MAC: DON'T HUMOR ME, TAGGERT.
TAGGERT: I WOULDN'T DO THAT,
COMMISSIONER.
FELICIA HAS TWO THINGS GOING
FOR HER -- ONE, SHE'S NOBODY'S
FOOL.
TWO, SHE'S GOT LUKE SPENCER
COVERING HER BACK.
MAC: WELL, WHAT ARE
WE WAITING FOR?
LET'S GO DO IT.

FELICIA: WE'VE BEEN IN HERE,
AND I HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT
THE LUMINOUS MOMENTS OF MY LIFE.
LUKE: OH, GOD.
ARE THEY STARTING TO FLASH
BEFORE YOU ALREADY?
FELICIA: DON'T YOU EVER SCAN
YOUR LIFE FOR HIGH POINTS?
LUKE: NO, NOT ANYMORE.
THE POINTS OF MY LIFE ARE MOSTLY
LOW AND LOWER.
FELICIA: THEY'RE JUST THOSE
LITTLE FLICKERS OF SOMETHING,
YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU KNOW YOU'RE
RIGHT WHERE YOU SHOULD BE,
WHERE EVERYTHING IS PERFECT
WITH THE UNIVERSE.
YOU DON'T KNOW WHY.
YOU JUST ARE.
JUST BECAUSE.
LUKE: YEAH.
YOU MEAN LIKE NOW?
FELICIA: PEOPLE WHO REMEMBER
THEIR LIFE BY THE GREAT,
GREAT EVENTS THAT HAPPEN,
YOU KNOW, LIKE WHEN THEY GET
MARRIED OR A GRADUATION
OR IF THEY BECOME QUEEN
OF THE PROM --
LUKE: OH, WOW.
THAT WAS, YOU KNOW,
QUEEN OF THE PROM, MY PERSONAL
APEX.
FELICIA: OH, THANK YOU.
WELL, IT'S THE SMALL STUFF,
YOU KNOW, LIKE -- LIKE THIS.
LIKE WHEN YOU'RE SITTING
IN A DINER AND YOU LOOK OUT
A WINDOW AND YOU SEE THE SUN GO
DOWN.
OR WHEN I SEE MY CHILDREN
PLAYING IN THE SURF
IN THE OCEAN.
OR IF I SPOT A LAKE THAT HAS
HUNDREDS OF DUCKS ON IT.
OR DRINKING FROM A THERMOS
WITH COFFEE IN IT WHILE I'M
DRIVING IN THE CAR.
OH, IT'S THE BEST.
MUNDANE STUFF, BUT IT'S REALLY
GOOD STUFF.
LUKE: WELL, NO, IT'S -- LIKE
BEING STUCK IN A CRYPT WITH ME.
FELICIA: I'M SERIOUS.
LUKE: SO AM I.
FELICIA: IT'S JUST THOSE
FLASHES OF MAGIC, YOU KNOW.
YOU CAN'T PLANHEM.
THEY JUST HAPPEN SO FAST.
YOU JUST CAN'T CATCH THEM,
EITHER.
LU: YOU MEAN THEY'RE LIKE
THAT STREAK OF LIGHTNING YOU SEE
EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE.
IT JUST GOES --
FELICIA: YES, THAT'S RIGHT!
LUKE: WELL, I THINK WE'LL GET
BACK TO BONE ANALYSIS,
IF YOU DON'T MIND.
FELICIA: LILA'S FLASHES
OF MAGIC -- DID YOU EVER TRY
TO THINK ABOUT WHAT THOSE
MIGHT BE?
THE FIRST ONE THAT SHE EVER
HAD -- I IMAGINE IT WAS
WITH EDWARD.
AND I BET SHE HAD A HUNDRED
FLASHES OF MAGIC AFTER THAT.
LUKE: MM-HMM.
LIKE WHEN SHE SENT HIM OFF
TO BATTLE, HOPING HE'D BE KILLED
IN ACTION.
FELICIA: YOU CAN'T POSSIBLY
BE THIS CYNICAL.
LUKE: WELL, I'M WORKING
ON IT.
FELICIA: THE LOVE OF HER LIFE
IN NAVY WHITES,
SAYING GOOD-BYE,
STARING INTO HIS BEAUTIFUL BLUE
EYES, THINKING THAT SHE MAY
NEVER SEE HIM AGAIN.
LUKE: AND NEVER SUSPECTING
THAT HE KILLED HIS RIVAL.
FELICIA: WANTING TO HOLD HIM
AND TO HUG HIM BECAUSE
SHE THINKS SHE MAY NEVER GET
TO BECAUSE HE'S GOING TO FLY OFF
TO WAR.
LUKE: YEAH, BUT HIS ENEMY,
HIS REAL ENEMY WAS IN THIS
DRAWER.
FELICIA: DON'T EVER WRITE
A ROMANCE NOVEL.
LUKE: NO, I WON'T.
I WANTED TO.
AND THE FACT THAT I JUST CAN'T
SEEM TO DO IT IS ONE
OF THE BITTER DISAPPOINTMENTS
OF MY LIFE.
WELL, IF YOU NEED ME,
I'M GOING TO BE OVER HERE
SCRATCHING ON THE WALL.
FELICIA: IF NOTHING EVER GOOD
EVER HAPPENS, IF THIS IS
THE LAST MAGIC MOMENT
OF MY LIFE, I'LL STILL BE GLAD
THAT --
LUKE: I'M COMING HOME TO YOU,
LILA.
FELICIA: OF COURSE YOU ARE.
I KNOW YOU ARE.
THERE'S NOT A DOUBT IN MY MIND.
BUT LIFE IS UNPREDICTABLE.
AND PEOPLE CHANGE IN ALL SORTS
OF WAY
LUKE: YOU AND I WILL GROW OLD
TOGETHER.
FELICIA: IF THAT'S WHAT'S
MEANT TO BE.
BUT --
LUKE: NO POWER ON EARTH
CAN KEEP ME FROM YOU.
FELICIA:S, WHAT WE FEEL,
IS ENOUGH TO LIGHT UP AN ENTIRE
LIFE.
AND IF IT GOES BY FAST,
THEN IT --
LUKE: I'M COMING HOME TO YOU,
LILA.
FELICIA: PROMISME.
LUKE: I PROMISE.
I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER.
FELICIA: I LOVE YOU.
LUKE: ARE YOU OK?

FELICIA: I'M FINE.
LUKE: OK.
YOU LOOK SO FAR AWAY.
FELICIA: NO, REALLY.
I AM FINE.
LUKE: I'M SORRY, FELICIA.
FELICIA: WHAT FOR?
LUKE: FOR NOT PICKING UP
THE BALL IN THE UPLIFT
DEPARTMENT.
YOU KNOW, I'M A NO-SHOW WHEN IT
COMES TO FAITH, HOPE,
AND OPTIMISM.
FELICIA: I'M SURE I DON'T
KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
LUKE: YES, YOU DO.
IT'S BAD ENOUGH TO BE STUCK
IN A CRYPT WITHOUT BEING STUCK
WITH THE WORLD'S BIGGEST CYNIC.
FELICIA: OH, YOU'RE NOT THAT
MUCH OF A CYNIC.
LUKE: NO?
YOU DON'T THINK SO?
WHAT YOU NEED IS SOMEBODY
TO TELL YOU THAT THERE ARE
ANGELS AND THAT THOSE DOORS ARE
GOING TO FLY OPEN AND THAT WE'LL
JUST WALTZ RIGHT OUT OF HERE.
FELICIA: DON'T TELL ME WHAT
I NEED.
LUKE: YOU NEED TO GET OUT
OF HERE.
FELICIA: YES, YES.
THAT GOES WITHOUT SAYING.
BUT, YOU KNOW, MY SADNESS REALLY
WASN'T ABOUT ME.
I WAS -- YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES
WHEN YOU'RE A WRITER,
YOU IMAGINE YOURSELF IN OTHER
PEOPLE'S LIVES, AND I WAS
PUTTING MYSELF IN LILA'S LIFE
OVER A HALF A CENTURY AGO.
AND SHE WAS SAYING GOOD-BYE
TO THE LOVE OF HER LIFE.
LUKE: OH, COOL!
YOU MEAN, LIKE, YOU WERE
IN A TRAIN STATION SAYING
BYE-BYE TO MR. ED.
FELICIA: WELL, ACTUALLY,
IT WAS AN AIRPORT, BUT THAT'S
SORT OF BESIDE THE POINT.
LUKE: BUT YOU WERE
IN AN AIRPORT THEN,
YOU KNOW, WAVING A LITTLE LACE
HANKIE, SAYING BYE-BYE
TO MR. ED.
FELICIA: WELL, I DIDN'T
ACTUALLY ENVISION EDWARD.
LUKE: YOU MEAN THE OLD
REPROBATE WASN'T EVEN
IN THE PICTURE?
FELICIA: WELL, HE WASN'T
REALLY OLD, EITHER.
LUKE: HE WASN'T?
WELL, WAS HE AT LEAST
SEPIA-TONED AND KIND OF GRAINY
LIKE THE PHOTOGRAPHS
IN THE FILE OR --
FELICIA: ARE YOU ALWAYS
SO LITERAL?
I JUST USE MY IMAGINATION
TO FILL IN THE BLANKS.
LUKE: OH, WAIT A MINUTE.
YOU'RE TELLING ME SOMEBODY WAS
STANDING IN FOR MR. ED.
FELICIA: WELL, YEAH,
YOU COULD SAY THAT.
LUKE: WELL, WHO WAS IT,
BUBBA?
FELICIA: NO.
LUKE: OH, I GOT IT.
BORIS KARLOFF.
FELICIA: NO, NO, NO.
YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO GUESS
IN A MILLION YEARS.
LUKE: PETER O'TOOLE
IN HIS PRIME?
FELICIA: YEAH, YOU'RE GETTING
A LITTLE CLOSER.
LUKE: ARE YOU GOING
TO TELL ME?
FELICIA: I DON'T THINK SO.
LUKE: WELL, OK.
THEN I GUESS I'LL HAVE
TO CONSULT OUR FRIENDS
IN THE CRYPT.
FELICIA: OH, NO, YOU DON'T.
NO, NO, NO.
LUKE: ALL RIGHT.
WHO DID YOU SEE AS EDWARD?
FELICIA: YOU.
LUKE: OH.
OH.
OH, DEAR.
NOW -- I THOUGHT WE WERE GETTING
ALONG SO WELL.
NOW YOU'VE GONE AND INSULTED ME.
FELICIA: HOW?
LUKE: WELL -- YOU SEE ME
AS THE DEVIL'S BODY DOUBLE?
FELICIA: EDWARD'S NOT
DEMONIC.
HE JUST HAS AN EDGE, THAT'S ALL.
LUKE: WELL, I THOUGHT
YOU SORT OF LIKED ME.
FELICIA: WOMEN ARE FASCINATED
BY COMPLICATED MEN.
LUKE: YEAH?
OH, THAT'S TRUE.
THEY SAY TED BUNDY WAS
A CHARMER.
FELICIA: EDWARD ISN'T
A SOCIOPATH.
WHETHER YOU WANT TO ADMIT IT
OR NOT, YOU AND EDWARD ARE
AN AWFUL LOT ALIKE.

LAURA: I'VE BEEN SPENDING
MORE AND MORE TIME WITH STEFAN,
AND HE'S BECOME A MAJOR PART
OF MY LIFE.
BOBBIE: BUT HOW DOES THIS
RELATE TO LULU?
I MEAN, I KNOW YOU'RE NOT
SUGGESTING THAT STEFAN REPLACE
HER FATHER.
LAURA: OH, NO.
NO, NO.
OF COURSE NOT.
BUT THE PROBLEM IS LUKE.
I MEAN, HE DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING,
BUT I CAN FEEL THE CHILL
WHENEVER I MENTION MY LIFE.
BOBBIE: WELL, LUKE HAS NEVER
BEEN A FAN OF STEFAN'S, AND THAT
IS NOT LIKELY TO CHANGE.
LAURA: I KNOW.
WELL, I CAN LIVE WITH THAT.
BUT I DON'T KNOW IF LUKE CAN.
I MEAN, YOU KNOW YOUR BROTHER.
YOU KNOW HOW HE BEHAVES WHEN
CERTAIN BUTTONS ARE PUSHED.
HE PULLS AWAY, FAR AWAY.
BOBBIE: WELL, LAURA,
UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES, I WOULD
SAY THAT'S A PRETTY HEALTHY
REACTION.
LAURA: FROM ME.
OK, FROM ME.
BUT FROM HIS DAUGHTER?
I MEAN, RIGHT NOW LULU AND I ARE
A PACKAGE.
LUKE'S ACCESS TO HER IS
THROUGH ME.
NOW, IF HE CAN'T HANDLE THAT --
BOBBIE: LUKE MAY DISTANCE
HIMSELF FROM LULU.
LAURA: WHAT DO I DO ABOUT
THAT?
BOBBIE: I HONESTLY WISH I HAD
AN ANSWER FOR YOU.
LAURA: SO DO I.
SO DO I.

JUAN: I'M TOUCHED
BY YOUR OFFER, BUT DON'T GO OUT
OF YOUR WAY.
I'LL TAKE THE BUS.
ELIZABETH: WELL, I GUESS
WE CAN SWING BY KELLY'S
ON THE WAY HOME, RIGHT?
JUAN: YOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE
A PROBLEM WITH ME, SO WHY DON'T
YOU JUST COME OUT AND SAY IT.
NIKOLAS: I HAVE A PROBLEM
WITH FRIENDS IN BAD SITUATIONS,
AND EMILY'S A VERY GOOD FRIEND
OF MINE.
JUAN: AND, WHAT, I'M A BAD
INFLUENCE?
NIKOLAS: I DON'T KNOW.
I DON'T KNOW YOU, ALL RIGHT?
BUT YOUR ATTITUDE OFFENDS ME.
JUAN: AND YOURS BELONGS
IN A MUSEUM?
ELIZABETH: LOOK,
LOOK, LOOK, I THINK WE'RE ALL
A LITTLE TIRED HERE, SO LET'S
NOT GET CRAZY, OK?
JUAN: FINE, NINOS.
CATCH YOUR BEDTIME.
I'VE GOT SOMEBODY IMPORTANT
TO SEE.
ELIZABETH: OH, WAIT, HOLD ON.
DO YOU NOT REMEMBER THAT EMILY
WARNED YOU ABOUT THAT GUY?
JUAN: PEOPLE HAVE OPINIONS.
I LIKE TO FORM MY OWN.
NIKOLAS: SOME PEOPLE WILL DO
JUST ABOUT ANYTHING TO SHOW OFF.
JUAN: SOME PEOPLE KNOW HOW
TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES,
BUT I GUESS YOU WOULDN'T KNOW
ANYTHING ABOUT THAT.
ELIZABETH: JUAN --
NIKOLAS: HEY, SAVE
YOUR BREATH.
LET'S GO.
MR. SOREL: SO YOU STILL WANT
TO WORK FOR ME?
JUAN: READY FOR MY FIRST
ASSIGNMENT.

HANNAH: THIS PERSON WHO HIT
YOU, DID HE HAVE A KNIFE?
JASON: A POOL CUE.
HANNAH: YOU SHOULD FILE
ASSAULT CHARGES.
I'M SERIOUS.
THE POLICE --
FINE.
JASON: YOU KNOW WHAT?
I DON'T KNOW WHERE SONNY IS
OR WHEN HE'LL BE BACK.
HANNAH: DID I ASK?
JASON: THAT'S NOT WHY YOU'RE
HERE?
HANNAH: WE HAD A SERIOUS
DISAGREEMENT.
JASON: I FIGURED.
HANNAH: HE TOLD YOU?
JASON: HE DIDN'T HAVE TO.
HANNAH: I BROKE SONNY'S
SACRED CODE -- FULL DISCLOSURE
AT ALL TIMES.
JASON: YOU MEAN, YOU LIED?
HANNAH: I WITHHELD
INFORMATION.
JASON: YOU LIED.
HANNAH: I CAN SEE WHY
YOU GUYS ARE FRIENDS.
FINE.
I LIED.
BUT I HAD A VERY GOOD REASON.
JASON: YEAH, WELL,
REASONS DON'T MATTER TO SONNY.
HANNAH: TELL ME ABOUT IT.
IT'S HIS WAY OR NO WAY.
JASON: YEAH, ON CERTAIN
THINGS.
HANNAH: SOMETHING HAPPENED
A WHILE AGO.
IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH NOW.
I DIDN'T WANT TO MESS UP SONNY
AND ME, SO I DECIDED TO KEEP IT
TO MYSELF.
IS IT A CRIME TO WANT TO DUMP
OLD BAGGAGE WHEN YOU MEET
SOMEBODY NEW?
JASON: HMM --
LOOK, SONNY DOESN'T LIKE TO BE
LIED TO, OK?
MOST PEOPLE DON'T.
HANNAH: SO THAT'S IT?
THAT'S ALL?
I'M CANCELED?
JASON: AH.
HANNAH: SORRY.

SONNY: I CAN COME BACK LATER,
IF YOU WANT.
HANNAH: GIVING ME TIME
TO SEDUCE YOUR BEST FRIEND?
THAT'S WHAT YOU'RE THINKING?
THAT'S WHY I'M HERE?
SONNY: I DIDN'T SAY THAT.
HANNAH: YEAH, WE HAD A FIGHT,
SO I'M JUMPING JASON.
THAT'S WHO I AM.
I'M A TWO-FACED LIAR.
BETRAYAL IS MY MIDDLE NAME.
SONNY: HANNAH, YOU KNOW,
I THINK YOU'RE OVERREACTING --
HANNAH: NO, IT DOESN'T MATTER
THAT JASON GOT BEAT UP, DOES IT?
YOU JUST HAVE TO SIT
ON YOUR THRONE AND PASS JUDGMENT
AND BANISH ME FROM THE KINGDOM
OF SONNY.
SONNY: WILL YOU STOP
WITH THE YAPPING, PLEASE?
HANNAH: YOU KNOW WHAT?
WELL, LET'S SEE -- YOU GOT ME
MY JOB, SO THAT PRETTY MUCH
LEAVES ME UNEMPLOYED.
AND THE ROOM AT KELLY'S,
YOU FINESSED THAT, TOO, SO I'M
PRETTY MUCH OUT ON THE STREET.
SONNY: ARE YOU DONE?
HANNAH: YES, I'M DONE.
I'M FINISHED.
SONNY: OH.
JASON: SHE'S MAD.
SONNY: YEAH, YEAH, I NOTICED.
SO WHAT'S GOING ON WITH JUAN?

MR. SOREL: I DO NOT CONDUCT
BUSINESS IN PUBLIC.
JUAN: JUST TELL ME WHERE
AND WHEN.
MR. SOREL: OOH.
NOT SO FAST.
WHAT ABOUT QUALIFICATIONS?
JUAN: I CAN DO WHATEVER
YOU NEED.
MR. SOREL: YOU'RE FAST
ON YOUR FEET.
CAN YOU KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT?
JUAN: TIGHT AS A DRUM,
MR. SOREL.
MR. SOREL: WHO TOLD
YOU MY NAME?
JUAN: YOU'RE AN IMPORTANT
PERSON.
PEOPLE KNOW YOU.
MR. SOREL: WHO KEEPS
HIS DEALINGS TO HIMSELF.
JUAN: I HEAR YOU.
MR. SOREL: I DON'T HAND OUT
SECOND CHANCES.
JUAN: I NEVER NEED THEM.
MR. SOREL: KEEP IT THAT WAY.
COME SEE ME TOMORROW.
JUAN: THANK YOU, MR. SOREL.
I'LL BE THERE.
MAC: YEAH, THAT'S GOOD WORK.
ALL RIGHT, WELL, LET ME KNOW
AS SOON AS YOU DO.

BOBBIE: I CALLED,
BUT THE LINE WAS BUSY.
YOU SOUNDED SO UPSET
ON MY MACHINE.
MAC: HAVE YOU HEARD
FROM LUKE?
BOBBIE: YOU MEAN TODAY?
MAC: IN THE PAST 48 HOURS.
BOBBIE: NO. WHY?
WHAT'S WRONG?
MAC: THEY'RE MISSING.
BOBBIE: WHAT DO YOU MEAN,
THEY'RE MISSING?
MAC: FELICIA AND LUKE TOOK
A TRIP OUT TO OYSTER BAY.
SOMETHING TO DO WITH LILA'S
MEMOIRS.
NOBODY'S HEARD FROM THEM SINCE.
BOBBIE: WELL, MAYBE THEY'RE
JUST BUSY.
MAC: FELICIA CHECKS IN,
BOBBIE, AND SHE HASN'T.
THEY FOUND LUKE'S CAR.
THEY'RE CHECKING THE AREA.
BOBBIE: WHAT ARE YOU TELLING
ME, THERE'S SOME KIND OF DANGER
INVOLVED?
MAC: NORMALLY, YOU WOULDN'T
THINK SO.
BUT FELICIA'S BEEN KIND
OF JUMPY.
BOBBIE: SHE HAS?
MAC: MAYBE SHE'S PICKING IT
UP FROM ME.
THERE'S A LOT GOING ON YOU DON'T
KNOW ABOUT.

FAISON: WHAT A TEDIOUS WOMAN.
I THOUGHT SHE WOULD NEVER LEAVE.
ALL RIGHT, HELENA.
I WAS ABOUT TO TELL YOU WHY
I PAY YOU THIS LITTLE VISIT.

FAISON: WELL, YOU'RE
CERTAINLY WELL ATTENDED.
WHAT A SURPRISE.
WHAT A SURPRISE.
STEFAN HARBORING SUCH LOVE.
I HATE SURPRISES.
BUT I GUESS THEY POP UP
FROM TIME TO TIME, NOW,
DON'T THEY?
FOR INSTANCE, OUR LITTLE PLAN.
YEAH.
WE HAVE A COMPLICATION.
LUKE SPENCER HAS DISAPPEARED.
BUT DON'T WORRY.
I ADMIT IT'S A MINOR SETBACK,
BUT I'LL HANDLE IT.
YOU KNOW HOW WELL I IMPROVISE.

BOBBIE: FAISON'S DEAD.
MAC: I KNOW, BUT THE VOICE.
BOBBIE: IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.
MAC: BOBBIE, IT SENT A CHILL
THROUGH ME AND FELICIA.
BOBBIE: IF THERE WERE
A PHOTOGRAPH, I MEAN, EVEN A BAD
ONE, YOU KNOW, OR EVEN JUST
A SKETCH BECAUSE, MAC, I'M SURE
WE WOULD RECOGNIZE FAISON
NO MATTER HOW MUCH HE CHANGED,
BUT -- BUT A VOICE?
I MEAN, JUST A VOICE.
MAC: I KNOW.
I KNOW YOU'RE RIGHT,
BUT I CAN'T THROW IT OFF.
I MEAN, SOMETHING KEEPS DRIVING
ME TO PUSH IT.
BOBBIE: OK.
SO YOU'LL IDENTIFY THE DIAMOND
SMUGGLER, AND WE'LL FIND OUT
IT'S NOT FAISON.
MAC: WELL, I CAN'T WRAP
MY MIND AROUND THAT UNTIL
FELICIA IS SAFE AT HOME.
BOBBIE: WELL, AT LEAST SHE'S
WITH LUKE.
MAC: THE TROUBLE MAGNET.
BOBBIE: OH, MAC,
NOW, COME ON.
THAT'S NOT FAIR.
LUKE ALWAYS MANAGES TO COME OUT
OF EVERYTHING OK.
SO IF HE AND FELICIA ARE
IN A JAM, YOU CAN TRUST THAT
MY BROTHER WILL GET THEM OUT
OF TROUBLE.
MAC: I'M NOT IN A VERY
TRUSTING MOOD.
AND FRANKLY, I'M SICK OF PEOPLE
SINGING LUKE'S PRAISES.

LUKE: OK.
MAYBE YOU'RE RIGHT.
THERE IS THE MANSION --
EDWARD PRESIDES OVER HIS,
I KEEP MINE IN THE TRUNK
OF MY CAR.
AND THERE ARE OUR FORTUNES --
HE SPENDS HIS, I HAVE MINE TIED
UP IN CHEESE FRIES AND BEER.
FELICIA: SUPERFICIAL
DIFFERENCES.
IN TASTE AND IN TEMPERAMENT,
YOU'RE BOTH THE SAME.
LUKE: WHEN I DRESS
FOR DINNER, IT MEANS I PUT
ON UNDERWEAR.
FELICIA: YOU BOTH HAVE
A PASSION FOR 1940s BLUES MUSIC.
LUKE: PASSION? EDWARD?
PLEASE.
FELICIA: MARY MAE.
LUKE: OH.
OH, OK, YEAH.
WELL, THERE IS THAT ONE THING.
FELICIA: YOU'RE BOTH
UNPREDICTABLE.
LUKE: HEY, SO ARE A LOT
OF PEOPLE.
FELICIA: RUTHLESS WHEN
CROSSED.
LUKE: WHO ISN'T?
FELICIA: NEITHER ONE
OF YOU CAN ACCEPT DEFEAT.
LUKE: OH, YEAH?
AND YOU CAN? YOU CAN?
FELICIA: NO, I CAN'T.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS?
WE'RE BOTH GOING TO GET OUT
OF HERE ALIVE.

JUAN: BAD NIGHT?
SO I GUESS YOU SAW SONNY.
AND YOU HE LIKES.
HANNAH: HE LIKES YOU, TOO.
JUAN: HE SAID THAT?
HANNAH: IN SO MANY WAYS.
HEY, HE WORRIES ABOUT YOU --
HOW YOU'RE LIVING, HOW YOU OUGHT
TO BE IN SCHOOL, HOW YOU NEED
TO BE WITH YOUR FAMILY.
JUAN: HOW TO GET RID OF ME,
IN OTHER WORDS.
HANNAH: NO, IT'S NOT LIKE
THAT.
JUAN: YES, IT IS.
BUT I'M GOING TO TURN SONNY
AROUND.
HANNAH: MAJOR JOB.
POSSIBLY HOPELESS.
SONNY'S NOT AN EASY MAN.

SONNY: SO YOU TELL ME JUAN
SAW SOREL ATTACK YOU AND JUMPED
IN TO HELP HIM ANYWAY?
JASON: YEAH, HE KNEW WHAT
HE WAS DOING.
SONNY: YEAH.
HE'S TAKING SIDES WITH MORENO
TO GET BACK AT ME.
THE KID'S IN WAY OVER HIS HEAD.
JASON: YOU TRY TELLING HIM
THAT.
SONNY: I GOT TO DO SOMETHING
ABOUT THAT KID BEFORE IT'S TOO
LATE.

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

SONNY: I THOUGHT WE WERE
OVER, UNLESS NOW YOU'VE CHANGED
YOUR MIND.

FELICIA: I'M NOT GOING TO DIE
IN HERE.
LUKE: OF COURSE YOU'RE
NOT, NO.

MAC: IF SHE IS IN DANGER,
I WOULD HOPE THAT YOU'RE
THE KIND OF FRIEND THAT WOULD
NOT WANT TO KEEP QUIET.

CARLY: GOING SOMEWHERE?
WERE YOU PLANNING ON SAYING
GOOD-BYE?
