KATHERINE: OH, I'M SORRY.
I DIDN'T REALIZE ANYBODY WAS
IN HERE, MADELINE.
MADELINE: DON'T MIND ME,
MS. BELL.
I'M JUST STRAIGHTENING NIKOLAS'
DESK.
KATHERINE: WELL, I'LL BE OUT
OF YOUR WAY IN JUST A SECOND.
DID YOU HAPPEN TO SEE MY FE
ON THE PROMOTIONS FOR
THE HOLIDAY CAMPAIGN?
I THINK I LEFT IT IN HERE
YESTERDAY -- AH!
MADELINE: THERE YOU GO.
KATHERINE: PERFECT.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
OH, BY THE WAY, COULD YOU CALL
NIKOLAS' FATHER AND HAVE HIM
COME BY THE OFFICE THIS MORNING?
HE TOLD ME THAT HE WANTS TO SEE
HIM.
MADELINE: I'LL GET ON THAT
RIGHT AWAY.
KATHERINE: GREAT.
HE ALSO WANTED YOU TO CALL
ELIZABETH WEBBER AND SET UP
A LUNCH DATE FOR TODAY.
SHE COULD JUST COME RIGHT HERE
TO THE OFFICE.
I'M SURE HER NUMBER IS
IN HIS ROLODEX.
MADELINE: ACTUALLY,
IT'S ON HIS SPEED DIAL.
KATHERINE: HOW CONVENIENT.
MADELINE: ANYTHING ELSE?
KATHERINE: NO, THANK YOU.
I -- I THINK THAT TAKES CARE
OF EVERYTHING.
HMM.

EMILY: HIS NAME IS
JUAN SANTIAGO.
HE WAS BROUGHT IN LAST NIGHT.
YEAH, THE BOY WHO WAS BEATEN UP.
IS HE ALLOWED TO HAVE VISITORS?
WELL, WHAT IF I WAIT OUTSIDE
HIS ROOM?
OK.
THANK YOU.
MONICA: REGINALD,
THERE'S A PACKAGE IN MY ROOM
THAT NEEDS TO GO IN THE CAR.
WOULD YOU HANDLE IT FOR ME?
THANK YOU.
OH.
YOU GOING SOMEPLACE?
EMILY: I'M GOING
TO THE HOSPITAL TO VISIT
MY FRIEND JUAN.
MONICA: NO, YOU'RE NOT.

LAURA: TONY?
TONY: HEY.
LAURA: HI.
ARE YOU OK?
YOU LOOK EXHAUSTED.
TONY: OH, YEAH.
I WAS UP ALL NIGHT CONSULTING
ON A CASE.
IN FACT, IT'S SOMEONE YOU KNOW.
LAURA: WHO?
TONY: YOU REMEMBER THE KID
I BROUGHT BY LAST WEEK, THE ONE
THAT'S MIXED UP WITH SONNY
CORINTHOS?
LAURA: JUAN SANTIAGO, RIGHT?
TONY: YEAH.
WELL, NOW HE'S FIGHTING
FOR HIS LIFE.

SONNY: ANY CHANGE?
BOBBIE: HE'S -- WELL,
HE'S HOLDING HIS OWN.
HE HAS DAME TO HIS INTESTINES,
HIS SPLEEN, AND A POSSIBLE
SPINAL CORD CONTUSION.
HIS SURGERY WENT VERY WELL,
BUT HIS CONDITION IS STILL
CRITICAL.
MAY I ASK YOU A QUESTION?
SONNY: DEPENDS.
BOBBIE: IS HE A RELATIVE
OF YOURS?
I'M JUST NOT EXACTLY CLEAR
ON WHY YOU'RE SO CONCERNED.
SONNY: IT'S A LONG STORY,
AND IT'S BEEN A LONG NIGHT.
IF YOU DON'T MIND --
BOBBIE: IT'S OK.
I'LL KEEP YOU UP TO DATE
ON HIS STATUS.
SONNY: THANKS.
[KNOCK ON WINDOW]
HANNAH: HEY.
SONNY: THANKS.
HANNAH: HOW IS HE?
SONNY: THE SAME.
HANNAH: I'M SORRY.
HAVE YOU BEEN HERE ALL NIGHT?
DID YOU GET ANY SLEEP AT ALL?
SONNY: I'M FINE.
I'M FINE, LIKE ALWAYS.
HANNAH: HE'S GOING
TO MAKE IT, SONNY.
YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT.
SONNY: HE CAME TO
PORT CHARLES BECAUSE OF ME.
IF HE DIES,
IT'LL BE FOR THE SAME REASON.

TONY: EMILY QUARTERMAINE
FOUND HIM IN AN ALLEY.
HE HAD BEEN BADLY BEATEN --
MASSIVE INTERNAL INJURIES.
AND THE SURGERY TEAM DID AS MUCH
AS THEY COULD, BUT IT'S STILL
POSSIBLE WE COULD LOSE HIM.
LAURA: I'M SO SORRY.
I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU CARED ABOUT
HIM.
TONY: YOU KNOW, I SHOULDN'T,
BUT HE JUST WAS ONE OF THOSE
KIDS YOU COULDN'T HELP BUT LIKE.
I MEAN, EVEN WHEN HE WAS DOING
SOMETHING WRONG, HE WAS JUST
SO SMART AND CONFIDENT AND --
AND I'M TALKING LIKE HE'S
ALREADY GONE.
WITH SOME GUIDANCE AND A LITTLE
BIT OF WILLINGNESS ON HIS PART,
I REALLY THOUGHT HE COULD PULL
HIS LIFE TOGETHER, AND THAT'S
WHY I INTRODUCED HIM TO YOU.
LAURA: I'M SORRY.
I WISH I COULD HAVE DONE
SOMETHING TO HELP HIM.
I --
TONY: IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT.
I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY HE WASN'T
READY FOR THAT KIND OF HELP.
BESIDES, HE S PARENTS --
SOMEWHERE.
SHOULDN'T IT BE THE PARENTS'
JOB, THEIR RESPONSIBILITY,
TO PROTECT THEIR SON?
LAURA: YES, OF COURSE.
I AGREE WITH YOU.
PARENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE TO LOOK
OUT FOR THEIR CHILD NO MATTER
HOW DIFFICULT, NO MATTER WHAT
THE CIRCUMSTANCES.
TONY: I'M SORRY.
IT'S ALSO TRUE THAT --
THAT SOONER OR LATER EVERY CHILD
TAKES FLIGHT ON HIS OWN.
WE MAY NOT APPROVE OF
THE TIMING, BUT THERE'S NOT
A WHOLE LOT WE CAN DO ABOUT IT.
JUAN WAS SMART.
HE WAS CHARMING.
HE WAS A GOOD PERSON UNDERNEATH
THE BAD-GUY EXTERIOR.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
HE STILL WOUND UP BEING HURT.
I MEAN, WE TRY TO AVOID THAT,
BUT THOSE THINGS HAPPEN.
WE CAN'T ALWAYS BE SUCCESSFUL.
LAURA: AND LOOKING
FOR SOMEBODY TO BLAME ISN'T
GOING TO HELP HIM TO RECOVER ANY
FASTER.
SO I THINK ALL WE CAN DO FOR HIM
RIGHT NOW IS TRY TO KEEP HIM OUT
OF TROUBLE WHEN HE DOES RECOVER.
TONY: IT'S NOT GOING TO BE
THAT EASY, THOUGH.
LAURA: Y?
TONY: BECAUSE HE LOOKS UP
TO SONNY.
I MEAN, HIS FANCY CLOTHES
AND HIS LIMOUSINES, AND IT LOOKS
LIKE A PRETTY GLAMOROUS LIFE
TILL YOU SEE T UP CLOSE.
AND GOING TO SCHOOL AND STUDYING
HARD AND WORKING HARD -- THOSE
DON'T COMPARE.

HANNAH: HEY, I TALKED
TO JUAN'S FATHER'S HOUSEKEEPER
AGAIN.
SHE'S DOING EVERYTHING SHE CAN
TO FIND HIM.
SONNY: THANKS.
HANNAH: SONNY, I KNOW
IT'S NOT EASY FOR YOU TO ASK
FOR THINGS.
BUT TRY TO REMEMBER, YOU DON'T
HAVE TO GO THROUGH THIS ALONE.
SONNY: LAST NIGHT I WAS
SITTING BY HIS BED.
HE KEPT MUMBLING THINGS I DIDN'T
UNDERSTAND.
THEN HE CALLED ME DAD.
HANNAH "DAD"?
SONNY: THEY GOT HIM
ON MORPHINE.
IT DOES STRANGE THINGS TO YOU.
SO I SAID IT WAS ME, AND HE SAID
IT AGAIN.
AND THEN HE TOLD ME HE KNEW
I WAS HIS FATHER.
HANNAH: IS THAT TRUE?
OF COURSE NOT.
SONNY: BUT HE SAID IT
WITH SUCH CONVICTION.
I KEEP HEARING IT OVER AND OVER
AGAIN IN MY HEAD.
HANNAH: YOU'RE NOT
RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT JUAN SAYS.
HOWEVER HE CAME UP WITH THAT
IDEA, IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT.
SONNY: DON'T SAY -- DON'T.
HANNAH: WHAT?
SONNY: I KNOW YOU'RE TRYING
TO MAKE IT EASIER, YOU KNOW,
FOR ME BY SAYING THE RIGHT
THING, SUPPORTING ME, BUT I TELL
YOU, IT --
YOU'RE NOT HELPING.
SO STOP TRYING.
HANNAH: I'LL CALL YOU.
BENNY: HOW'S THE KID?
SONNY: HANGING IN THERE.
DID YOU TAKE CARE OF IT?
BENNY: MR. SOREL WON'T BE
BOTHERING JUAN OR
MISS QUARTERMAINE AGAIN.
SONNY: GOOD WORK.
BENNY: SO, WHAT CAN I DO
FOR YOU?
SONNY: JUAN'S FATHER'S NAME
IS ARMANDO SANTIAGO.
THE SAME ADDRESS I GAVE
YOU FOR THE KID.
BENNY: MM-HMM.
SONNY: HE'S ON A BUSINESS
TRIP.
I NEED YOU TO CALL CARLOS
IN PUERTO RICO AND SEE IF HE CAN
LOCATE MR. SANTIAGO.
TELL CARLOS I'D CONSIDER IT
A PERSONAL FAVOR.
BENNY: OK, I'LL MAKE
THE CALL.

MONICA: JUAN IS CONNECTED
TO SONNY CORINTHOS.
HE WAS BEATEN WITHIN AN INCH
OF HIS LIFE, EMILY.
CAN YOU BLAME ME FOR NOT WANTING
YOU INVOLVED WITH HIM?
EMILY: I ALREADY AM INVOLVED.
MONICA: WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
EMILY: JUAN'S MY FRIEND.
HE'S HURT, AND I CARE.
MONICA: YOU CAN CALL
THE HOSPITAL.
THEY'LL BE HAPPY TO GIVE
YOU AN UPDATE.
EMILY: THAT'S NOT GOOD
ENOUGH.
YOU KNOW, HE'S ALREADY ALONE
AS IT IS.
HIS MOM DIED AND --
OTHER PEOPLE HAVE LEFT HIM, TOO.
MONICA: IF HE IS SUCH A GOOD
FRIEND, EMILY, WHY HAVEN'T
YOU MENTIONED HIS NAME BEFORE?
WHY IS IT THE FIRST TIME I HEAR
YOU SPEAK HIS NAME IS
IN E.R. AND YOU'RE COVERED
WITH HIS BLOOD?
EMILY: SOMETIMES IT'S JUST
BETTER FOR ME TO KEEP SECRETS.
MONICA: NOT FROM ME,
IT ISN'T.
AND WHY?
EMILY: BECAUSE THIS FAMILY
HAS AN INCREDIBLE WAY OF TEARING
PEOPLE APART.
YOU PUT THEM UNDER A MICROSCOPE
AND YOU KEEP RAISING THE POWER
UNTIL ALL YOU CAN SEE IS WHAT'S
WRONG WITH THEM.
MY FRIENDS DON'T NEED
TO EXPERIENCE THAT, SO THE LESS
THAT I TELL YOU ABOUT THEM,
THE BETTER IT IS FOR EVERYONE.
MONICA: OUR FAMILY IS MANY
THINGS, BUT WHEN IT COMES
TO YOU, ALL WE WANT IS
YOUR HAPPINESS AND YOUR SAFETY.
EMILY: I KNOW THAT I HAVE
GIVEN YOU AND DAD A REASON
TO QUESTION MY JUDGMENT
IN THE PAST, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT
COMES TO FRIENDS.
BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU CAN
KEEP ME ON A LEASH.
MONICA: I HAVE NO INTENTION
OF DOING THAT.
BUT I PROMISED YOUR MOTHER
I WOULD TAKE CARE OF YOU, EM.
AND I DO INTEND TO DO THAT.
EMILY: HOW?
BY NOT LETTING ME SEE PEOPLE
I LIKE?
MONICA: BY KNOWING WHERE
YOU'RE GOING AND WHO YOU'RE
GOING WITH.
FOR INSTANCE, WHY YOU WERE
IN THE ALLEY WHEN JUAN WAS
BEATEN.
EMILY: I FOLLOWED HIM.
MONICA: WHY?
EMILY: I THOUGHT THAT HE WAS
GOING TO GET IN TROUBLE.
LOOK, DO YOU EVEN CARE THAT
HE MIGHT DIE?
MONICA: YES, I DO CARE,
EMILY.
I DO.
BUT, QUITE FRANKLY, I CARE MORE
ABOUT YOU.
NOW, AS GOOD A FRIEND
AS JUAN IS, HE IS ASSOCIATED
WITH SONNY CORINTHOS,
AND I CANNOT LET YOU NEAR HIM.
EMILY: I'M NOT GOING TO GET
HURT.
MONICA: JASON ALMOST DIED
BECAUSE OF SONNY.
JUAN IS IN THE SAME SITUATION.
I REFUSE TO EXPOSE YOU TO THAT
KIND OF DANGER.
EMILY: WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?
I'M UNDER HOUSE ARREST?
MONICA: WELL, YOU CALL IT
WHAT YOU WANT TO, BUT YOU'RE NOT
GOING TO SEE HIM AGAIN.

STEFAN: NIKOLAS?
KATHERINE: STEFAN.
WHAT A SURPRISE.
STEFAN: I'M SORRY.
I THOUGHT THIS WAS NIKOLAS'
OFFICE.
KATHERINE: IT IS, AND I WAS
LOOKING FOR HIM, TOO.
IT'S GOOD TO SEE YOU HERE.
ABOUT TIME YOU SAW YOUR SON'S
OFFICE.
STEFAN: I'LL WAIT FOR HIM
OUTSIDE.
KATHERINE: YOU KNOW,
ACTUALLY, I COULD USE YOUR HELP.
I'M ADDING A NEW MEN'S FRAGRANCE
THIS YEAR, AND I'M LOOKING
FOR AN EXITING WAY TO POSITION
IT.
I HAD MY ARTIST DRAW UP THESE
SKETCHES, AND I AM HAVING
THE HARDEST TIME DECIDING WHICH
ONE I LIKE BEST.
WOULD YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THEM?
PLEASE?
THANK YOU.
TRY NOT TO THINK.
JUST GIVE ME YOUR GUT REACTION.
STEFAN: BEWILDERMENT.
KATHERINE: YOU DON'T LIKE ANY
OF THEM?
STEFAN: THAT WOULD BE
AN UNDERSTATEMENT.
KATHERINE: HUH.
WELL, THAT'S TOO BAD.
I WAS PLANNING TO USE NIKOLAS
AS MY MODEL.
STEFAN: NO, YOU'RE NOT.
KATHERINE: PERSONALLY,
I THINK HE'S PERFECT.
HE'S HANDSOME, CHARISMATIC,
AND HE LOOKS GREAT WITHOUT
HIS SHIRT ON.
STEFAN: YOU'VE ALREADY
EXPLOITED NIKOLAS ENOUGH.
YOU WILL NOT ADD PUBLIC
HUMILIATION TO YOUR LIST
OF OFFENSES.
KATHERINE: I THINK NIKOLAS
WOULD BE THE ONE EXPLOITING ME.
DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THIS
KIND OF EXPOSURE COULD DO
FOR A PERSON?
STEFAN: THAT'S PRECISELY WHY
I DON'T WANT NIKOLAS INVOLVED.
KATHERINE: DON'T YOU THINK
HE SHOULD MAKE HIS OWN
DECISIONS?
STEFAN: I'VE ALREADY MADE
THE DECISION FOR HIM.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL
NIKOLAS BE USED AS A SHILL
FOR YOUR DISTASTEFUL PRODUCTS.
NIKOLAS: HI, MADELINE.
MADELINE: HI.
NIKOLAS: HAVE YOU SEEN
KATHERINE?
MADELINE: YES, NIKOLAS.
SHE'S IN YOUR OFFICE.
NIKOLAS: THANKS.
>> THE ROLE OF NIKOLAS CASSADINE
IS BEING PLAYED BY
COULTON SCOTT.
KATHERINE: NIKOLAS IS
A GROWNUP.
AND HE HAS A RIGHT TO DO WHAT
HE WANTS.
STEFAN: WHEN IT COMES TO YOU,
NIKOLAS HAS MADE ONE MISTAKE
AFTER THE NEXT.
NOW, I INTEND TO PURGE
YOU FROM HIS LIFE FOR GOOD.
NIKOLAS: THAT'S NOT
YOUR DECISION TO MAKE.

KATHERINE: I AM SO SORRY
YOU HAD TO HEAR THAT, NIKOLAS.
YOUR FATHER AND I WERE JUST
HAVING A SLIGHT DISAGREEMENT.
STEFAN: OH, REALLY?
NIKOLAS: HOW MANY TIMES ARE
WE GOING TO DO THIS?
DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT I'M
GOING TO LIVE MY LIFE ACCORDING
TO YOUR RULES?
STEFAN: KATHERINE IS
A NEGATIVE INFENCE
ON YOUR LIFE, NIKOLAS.
NOW, I HAVE DONE MY BEST TO KEEP
MY COUNSEL, BUT TODAY SHE HAS
CROSSED THE LINE.
NIKOLAS: IF YOU DON'T LIKE
THE FACT THAT WE ARE INVOLVED,
FINE.
BUT I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT.
STEFAN: ALL RIGHT, I WILL NOT
ENGAGE IN A PUBLIC SHOUTING
MATCH WITH YOU.
SHOULD YOU CARE TO HEAR
THE TRUTH OF WHAT TRANSPIRED
HERE TODAY, YOU KNOW HOW
TO REACH ME.
KATHERINE: ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?
IT WAS COMPLETELY MY FAULT.
I SHOULDN'T LET HIM GET TO ME
LIKE THAT.
NIKOLAS: IS THAT WHY HE WAS
HERE?
TO TELL YOU TO STAY AWAY
FROM ME?
KATHERINE: IN STEFAN'S EYES,
I'M JUST A PREDATOR.
I TOOK ADVANTAGE OF
YOUR INNOCENCE AND I CARE ABOUT
NO ONE BUT MYSELF.
NIKOLAS: HE'S WRONG.
KATHERINE: IT IS KIND
OF YOU TO SAY THAT, BUT --
NIKOLAS: WHAT?
KATHERINE: I JUST WONDER
IF MAYBE IT WOULD BE
EASIER IF --
NIKOLAS: IF WE STAY AWAY
FROM EACH OTHER FOR A WHILE?
NO.
I WON'T LET HIM DICTATE WHAT
I CAN DO.
KATHERINE: STEFAN
AND YOUR MOTHER HAVE INSISTED
THAT I'M HURTING YOU.
THEY'VE SAID IT FOR SUCH A LONG
TIME NOW, I'M ALMOST STARTING
TO BELIEVE IT MYSELF.
NIKOLAS: THEY KNOW NOTHING
ABOUT US.
KATHERINE: YOU KNOW,
WHEN WE GOT INVOLVED,
I KNEW THAT WE WOULD OPEN
OURSELVES UP FOR CRITICISM.
BUT I NEVER WANTED TO HURT YOU.
YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT.
NIKOLAS: KNOWING YOU,
BEING CLOSE,
HAS DONE ONLY GOOD FOR ME.
I KNOW YOU CARE ABOUT ME,
KATHERINE.
I HAVE NO REGRETS.

ALAN: HEY.
I GOT AN EMERGENCY MESSAGE.
WHAT'S GOING ON?
EMILY: OH, I'LL EXPLAIN
ON THE WAY.
ALAN: ON THE WAY WHERE?
EMILY: WE GOT TO GET
TO GENERAL HOSPITAL REALLY
QUICK.
ALAN: HANG ON ONE SECOND.
ARE YOU HURT?
WHAT'S GOING ON?
EMILY: NO, NO, NO.
JUAN WENT INTO EMERGENCY
SURGERY, AND HE'S STILL
IN THE I.C.U.
I HAVE TO SEE HIM.
ALAN: OK.
WHY DIDN'T YOU ASK REGINALD
TO TAKE YOU?
EMILY: I -- I DON'T KNOW.
I -- WELL --
I FELT MORE COMFORTABLE GOING
WITH YOU.
ALAN: YOUR MOTHER REFUSED
TO LET YOU GO, DIDN'T SHE?
EMILY: SHE'S BEING COMPLETELY
UNREASONABLE.
AS IF I'M GOING TO GET IN DANGER
SOMEHOW BY GOING AND SITTING
IN THE HOSPITAL.
ALAN: IT'S NOT SITTING
IN THE HOSPITAL THAT CONCERNS
US.
EMILY: OH --
ALAN: IT'S THE ASSOCIATION
WITH SONNY CORINTHOS.
EMILY: NOT YOU, TOO?
ALAN: LOOK, I'M VERY SORRY
WHAT HAPPENED TO JUAN,
BUT YOU MUST SEE THE PATTERN
HERE.
PEOPLE WHO ARE INVVED
WITH SONNY GET HURT.
EMILY: LOOK, IF YOU DON'T
WANT ME TO BE JUAN'S FRIEND,
LET'S DISCUSS THIS ANOTHER TIME.
RIGHT NOW I NEED TO GET
TO THE HOSPITAL.
I NEED TO SEE HIM.
ALAN: I UNDERSTAND WHAT IT'S
LIKE TO WANT TO HELP SOMEONE,
BUT I CANNOT ALLOW YOU TO BE
INVOLVED WITH ONE OF SONNY'S
PROTEGES.
MONICA: I THOUGHT I HEARD
YOUR VOICE.
WHY AREN'T YOU AT THE CLINIC?
ALAN: I GOT AN EMERGENCY
MESSAGE TO COME HOME
IMMEDIATELY.
IT SEEMS THAT OUR DAUGHTER IS
TRYING TO PLAY ONE OFF AGAINST
THE OTHER.

SONNY: HEY, WAIT.
HOW IS HE?
TONY: WE CAN DISCUSS IT OUT
THERE.
ASIDE FROM HIS BROKEN BONES,
HE'S SUFFERED TRAUMA
TO HIS INTERNAL ORGANS.
WE'VE MANAGED TO STOP
THE BLEEDING, BUT HIS SPLEEN MAY
HAVE STARTED HEMORRHAGING
INTERNALLY.
WE'RE KEEPING AN EYE ON IT.
SONNY: IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE
YOU CAN DO?
ANYTHING YOU NEED?
I'M HERE, YOU KNOW.
I'LL DO ANYTHING.
TONY: IT AMAZES ME THAT IT
DISTURBS YOU.
I MEAN, ISN'T THIS ALL JUST
IN A DAY'S WORK FOR YOU?
SONNY: COME ON, DOCTOR.
YOU DON'T WANT TO --
TONY: DID YOU EVER THINK
ABOUT CHANGING YOUR ACT?
I MEAN, BECAUSE THE SAVIOR
ROUTINE, IT REALLY DOESN'T HAVE
A VERY GOOD TRACK RECORD.
YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING
FOR THE BOY?
DON'T BE THE FIRST THING HE SEES
WHEN HE WAKES UP.
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO SAY TO HIM
ANYWAY?
"THANKS FOR BEING LOYAL"?
"YOU TAKE A BEATING LIKE A PRO"?
SONNY: ENOUGH, DOCTOR!
MIKE: EXCUSE ME.
LET ME ASK YOU A QUESTION,
DR. JONES.
I MEAN, DO YOU KNOW FOR A FACT
THAT SONNY HAD ANYTHING TO DO
WITH WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT BOY?
TONY: DO YOU KNOW FOR A FACT
THAT THIS "SONNY IS A GOOD MAN"
LECTURE'S A WASTE OF TIME TO ME?
MIKE: I --
I HEAR YOU COULD USE A FRIEND.
SONNY: HANNAH CALLED YOU?
MIKE: SHE'S WORRIED ABOUT
YOU.
SONNY: COME HERE.
AHEM.
HE LOOK FAMILIAR?
MIKE: NO.
SHOULD HE?
SONNY: HIS NAME IS
JUAN SANTIAGO.
HE'S LILY'S SON.
MIKE: WHAT'S HE DOING
IN PORT CHARLES?
SONNY: HE CAME TO FIND ME.
HE WANTED ME TO GIVE HIM A JOB.
WHEN I WOULDN'T, HE --
HE WENT TO WORK FOR ONE
OF MORENO'S MEN.
MIKE: LOOK, HOW BAD OFF
IS HE?
SONNY: WELL, YOU KNOW,
THERE'S A CHANCE HE'S NOT GOING
TO ME IT.
ALL HE WANTED FROM ME WAS HELP,
YOU KNOW, AND I THOUGHT
BY TURNING HIM DOWN I WOULD
KEEP HIM SAFE.

LAURA: BOBBIE?
BOBBIE: OH, HI.
LAURA: HI.
HAS THERE BEEN ANY WORD ABOUT
JUAN SANTIAGO?
I THINK THEY MUST HAVE BROUGHT
HIM IN LATE LAST NIGHT.
BOBBIE: I DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE
YOU KNEW HIM.
LAURA: WELL, TONY THOUGHT
THAT HE MIGHT BE A GOOD
CANDIDATE FOR THE OUTREACH
PROGRAM, AND I JT WAS HOPING
THAT I COULD HELP HIM.
BOBBIE: OH.
WELL, HIS SURGERY WAS
SUCCESSFUL, BUT HE'S STILL
CRITICAL.
SO WE'LL KNOW A LOT MORE
IN THE NEXT 24 HOURS.
LAURA: OK.
WOULD YOU MIND KEEPING ME
POSTED?
BOBBIE: ABSOLUTELY.
HEY, I HAD SOME GOOD NEWS
RECENTLY.
LAURA: OH?
BOBBIE: LUKE'S NOT MISSING
ANYMORE.
LAURA: I NEVER KNEW THAT
HE WAS.
BOBBIE: OH.
WELL --
IT'S NO BIG DEAL.
I MEAN, HE'S HOME NOW, HE'S SAFE
AND SOUND, AND THERE'S NOTHING
TO WORRY ABOUT.
LAURA: WELL, WHAT WAS
HE DOING, THOUGH?
BOBBIE: HE WAS HELPING
FELICIA OUT ON AN INVESTIGATION,
AND THE TWO OF THEM DROPPED OUT
OF SIGHT FOR A FEW DAYS, AND MAC
WAS A LITTLE WORRIED.
LAURA: WHERE WERE THEY?
BOBBIE: LOCKED IN A CRYPT.
LEAVE IT TO LUKE.
LAURA: YEAH.
WELL, I BET I KNOW HOW THAT CAME
ABOUT.
BOBBIE: OH, WELL, WHY DON'T
YOU TELL ME.
LAURA: WELL, YOU KNOW,
IT PROBABLY STARTED OUT
AS A SIMPLE MYSTERY, AND LUKE
GOT INVOLVED AND TOOK SOME
CHANCES, AND HE CONVINCED
FELICIA HE KNEW EXACTLY HOW
TO SOLVE IT, AND SHE FOLLOWED
ALONG.
BOBBIE: YEAH.
WELL, THAT SOUNDS ABOUT RIGHT.
I MEAN, I DON'T HAVE ALL
OF THE DETAILS, BUT AS USUAL,
I'M SURE LUKE PUSHED THINGS
RIGHT PAST THE BREAKING POINT.
LAURA: YEAH.
WELL, WHY LAND A PLANE WHEN
YOU CAN JUMP OUT OF IT?
WHY CROSS A BRIDGE WHEN YOU CAN
RIDE OVER THE WATERFALL?
BOY.
HE'LL JUST NEVER CHANGE, HUH?
BOBBIE: I DON'T THINK SO.
LAURA: WELL, I'M GLAD
HE FOUND SOMETHING TO KEEP HIM
BUSY.
BOBBIE: YEAH.
WELL, I THINK THAT WORKING
WITH FELICIA REALLY HAS BEEN
HELPING HIM.
LAURA: YEAH.
WELL, WE ALL HEAL IN OUR OWN
WAYS, I GUESS.
BOBBIE: I GUESS.
I'LL LET YOU KNOW WHEN WE HEAR
ANYTHING ABOUT JUAN.
LAURA: THANKS.
STEFAN?
WHAT'S THE MATTER?
STEFAN: IT CONCERNS KATHERINE
BELL AND OUR SON.

KATHERINE: YOU DON'T NEED
TO COMFORT ME.
I KNOW YOUR HEART ISN'T IN IT.
NIKOLAS: WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
KATHERINE: PLEASE.
CAN WE AT LEAST BE HONEST
WITH EACH OTHER?
NIKOLAS: I HAVE BEEN.
KATHERINE: I KNOW THAT YOU'VE
BEEN ANGRY WITH ME LATELY.
BUT WHAT DISTURBS ME IS
I DON'T -- WELL, I'M NOT SURE
WHY.
NIKOLAS: IT'S BEEN --
IT'S BEEN A DIFFICULT TIME.
KATHERINE: I KNOW.
AND MORE THAN ANYTHING,
I WANTED TO HELP YOU THROUGH
YOUR BROTHER'S DEATH.
BUT INSTEAD, I SEEM TO PUSH
YOU FARTHER AWAY.
NIKOLAS: IT'S NOT YOU.
I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT I WANT
AT THE MOMENT, SO I DECIDED
TO KEEP MYSELF DISTANT.
KATHERINE: I JUST -- I JUST
WANTED YOU TO NEED ME,
TO TURN TO ME.
I'VE MISSED YOU --
OUR CLOSENESS AND OUR
COMMUNICATION.
NIKOLAS: I MISS YOU, TOO.
KATHERINE: I'LL ALWAYS
TREASURE WHAT WE SHARED.
BUT I GUESS THE PRESSURE WAS
JUST TOO MUCH.
NIKOLAS: NO, IT WAS NEVER
THAT.
KATHERINE: I'M SURE EVERYONE
THAT KNOWS US THINKS THAT I WAS
YOUR GUIDE AND TUTOR THROUGHOUT
THIS RELATIONSHIP.
BUT THE TRUTH IS SO
THE OPPOSITE.
YOU WERE THE ONE
THAT TAUGHT ME --
TO BE SIMPLE AND DIRECT,
AFFECTIONATE AND GIVING.
I'M NOT READY TO GIVE THAT UP.
NOT WHEN WE STILL HAVE SO MUCH
LEFT TO GIVE.

EMILY: GREAT.
NOW BOTH OF YOU ARE GANGING UP
ON ME.
MONICA: NOT IF WE CAN
HELP IT, EM.
YES, WE CAN INVOKE PARENTAL
AUTHORITY AND MAKE THREE LIVES
MISERABLE.
PERSONALLY, I'D LIKE TO SEE US
COME TO SOME SORT OF
AN AGREEMENT.
EMILY: WHICH USUALLY MEANS
I DO WHAT I'M TOLD.
MONICA: WELL, SOMETIMES
THAT'S THE ONLY OPTION LEFT
TO US.
ALAN: WE DON'T WANT
TO ENFORCE UNFAIR RESTRICTIONS,
BUT WE HAVE TO DO WHAT WE THINK
IS RIGHT.
EMILY: AND WHAT IF YOU'RE
NOT?
ALAN: I WOULD PREFER TO ERR
ON THE SIDE OF SAFETY.
MONICA: LOOK, EM,
A COUPLE YEARS AGO, YOUR D
AND I -- WELL, FOR VARIOUS
REASONS -- COULD NOT GIVE
YOU THE ATTENTION THAT
YOU NEEDED.
AND AS A RESULT --
EMILY: I GOT INTO DRUGS.
IS THAT WHAT THIS HAS TO DO
WITH, ANOTHER WAY TO SAY
YOU DON'T TRUST ME?
ALAN: WE DO TRUST YOU.
EMILY: THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO
WITH DRUGS.
BUT I GUESS I'M GUILTY UNTIL
PROVEN INNOCENT.
MONICA: WE'RE NOT ACCUSING
YOU OF ANYTHING.
EMILY: WELL, YOU MIGHT
AS WELL.
ALAN: LOOK, EM, WE ARE TRYING
TO LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES.
A FEW YEARS AGO, WE GAVE
A.J. TOO MUCH FREEDOM.
HE WOUND UP AN ALCOHOLIC.
THEN WE DIDN'T PAY ENOUGH
ATTENTION TO YOU, AND YOU GOT
INTO DRUGS.
WE'RE NOT GOING TO LET IT HAPPEN
AGAIN.
YOU'RE TOO IMPORTANT TO US.
EMILY: I'M SORRY THAT YOU'RE
FEELING SO GUILTY, BUT MAYBE
YOU SHOULD JOIN A GROUP
OR SOMETHING AND STOP TAKING IT
OUT ON ME.
MONICA: THAT IS NOT FAIR.
DO NOT MAKE US WRONG FOR WANTING
TO PROTECT YOU.
EMILY: FROM VISITING SOMEONE
IN THE HOSPITAL?
IT'S NOT LIKE HE HAS A DISEASE,
MOM.
THERE'S NOTHING TO CATCH.
ALAN: LOOK, IT BOILS DOWN
TO A SIMPLE EQUATION --
PEOPLE WHO ARE INVOLVED
WITH SONNY, THEY GET HURT.
AND YOU KNOW ALL THE NAMES --
KAREN WEXLER, ROBIN,
STONE, BRENDA.
AND JUAN IS THE LATEST VICTIM.
I AM NOT GOING TO LET YOU BE
ADDED TO THAT LIST, EVEN IF IT
MAKES YOU ANGRY WITH US.
EMILY: YOU CAN'T CONTROL
MY FEELINGS, AND YOU CAN'T KEEP
ME LOCKED UP FOREVER.
SOONER OR LATER, I'M GOING
TO SEE HIM.
MONICA: SO MUCH FOR COMING
TO A MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING.
ALAN: DID YOU HEAR THE FRONT
DOOR SLAM?
MONICA: NO.
ALAN: GOOD.
THAT MEANS SHE WENT TO HER ROOM.
MONICA: THE QUESTION IS,
HOW LONG WILL SHE STAY THERE?

MIKE: LOOK,
HE'S SLEEPING, SO WHY DON'T
WE GET SOMETHING TO EAT?
SONNY: I WANT TO BE HERE WHEN
HE WAKES UP.
MIKE: YEAH, BUT THAT -- THAT
COULD BE FOR HOURS.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD
SOME FOOD?
SONNY: HE'S MY WIFE'S SON.
I THINK SHE WOULDN'T WANT ME
TO LEAVE HIM ALONE, YOU KNOW?
MIKE: ALL RIGHT.
IF YOU -- YOU HAVE TO LOOK AFTER
JUAN, YOU GO AHEAD.
BUT DON'T MAKE THIS ABOUT
YOUR GUILT OVER THINGS
YOU COULDN'T CONTROL.
OK?
SONNY: THANKS FOR COMING BY.
[MONITOR BEEPS]
SONNY: THIS BELONGED
TO MY WIFE.
WHERE'D YOU GET IT?
JUAN: YOU GAVE IT TO ME.
SONNY: JUAN?
JUAN: YOU KNOW ME.
SO I'M ON MY OWN, AND
YOU PROMISED TO HELP, AND THAT'S
WHY I CAME HERE.
SONNY: YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT.
I DID PROMISE YOU THAT,
AND I MEANT IT.
BUT RIGHT NOW I CAN'T DO
ANYTHING.
I CAN'T GIVE YOU THE CHANGES
YOU NEED.
THAT'S BETWEEN YOU AND
YOUR FAMILY.
SO I'M GOING TO BOOK
YOU ON A FLIGHT --
JUAN: I'M NOT GOING BACK.
I MEAN IT.
I NEED A JOB.
I WANT TO WORK FOR YOU.
SONNY: NO!
JUAN: YOU OWE ME THAT.
JUAN: I KNOW YOU'RE MY DAD.
JUAN: DAD?
SONNY: NO.
IT'S SONNY.
YOUR FATHER'S IN PUERTO RICO.
JUAN: WHY DO YOU HATE ME
SO MUCH, DAD?
WHAT DID I DO WRONG?

STEFAN: I RECEIVED A MESSAGE
TO MEET NIKOLAS AT HIS OFFICE.
WHEN I ARRIVED, HE WAS NOT
IN HIS OFFICE.
KATHERINE WAS.
WITHIN MINUTES, SHE HAD GOADED
ME INTO A ROW ABOUT NIKOLAS.
LAURA: OVER WHAT?
STEFAN: SHE PROPOSED TO MAKE
HIM A MODEL FOR DECEPTION,
PARADING HIM AROUND
WITHOUT HIS SHIRT, NO LESS.
WHEN I OBJECTED, SHE ACTED
AS IF SHE WAS DEFENDING
HIS INDEPENDENCE.
WE ESCALATED INTO AN ARGUMENT.
NIKOLAS CONVENIENTLY ARRIVED
AND OVERHEARD HER DEFENDING HIM.
LAURA: WHAT DIDOU DO?
STEFAN: WELL, HE WAS
IN NO MOOD TO LISTEN TO REASON.
I LEFT WITHOUT FURTHER ARGUMENT.
LAURA: IT WAS A SETUP.
STEFAN: KATHERINE OBVIOUSLY
SUMMONED ME TO THE OFFICE
HERSELF SO THAT SHE COULD STAGE
HER LITTLE DRAMA FOR NIKOLAS
TO WITNESS.
LAURA: YOU KNOW,
I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT IN ABOUT
AN HOUR FROM NOW.
COULD YOU PLEASE ASK AMY TO JUST
RESCHEDULE IT FOR ME?
STEFAN: WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
LAURA: I'M GOING TO FIND
KATHERINE --
STEFAN: NO, CONFRONTING
HER WILL DO NO GOOD.
SHE WILL SIMPLY USE IT
AS AMMUNITION AGAINST US.
LAURA: BUT YOU CAN'T LET
HER GET AWAY WITH THAT.
YOU CAN'T ALLOW HER
TO MANIPULATE OUR SON THAT WAY.
STEFAN: I AGREE.
BUT THE SITUATION IS COMPLEX,
LAURA.
LAURA: LOOK, IT'S OVER, OK?
THE THING IS JUST OVER.
I'M GOING TO FIND KATHERINE,
AND I'M GOING TO MAKE SURE
SHE DOESN'T GO NEAR OUR SON
AGAIN.
STEFAN: I URGE YOU NOT TO DO
THAT.
LAURA: WHY?
BECAUSE SHE'D USE IT AGAINST ME?
SHE'D SOMEHOW TWIST IT AROUND
TO KEEP HOLD ON NIKOLAS?
I THOUGHT THAT HE WAS DISTANCING
HIMSELF FROM HER.
APPARENTLY NOT, THOUGH.
THERE'S GOT TO BE SOME WAY
TO KEEP HER OUT OF HIS LIFE.

SONNY: I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
WHAT MAKES YOU THINK I HATE YOU?
JUAN: YOU SENT ME HOME.
SONNY: YEAH, I WANT YOU TO GO
HOME.
YOU KNOW, I WORRIED ABOUT YOU.
JUAN: YOU'RE ASHAMED OF ME.
SONNY: THAT'S NOT IT.
WHOA.
YOU'RE A GOOD KID.
WHY WOULD ANYBODY BE ASHAMED
OF YOU?
JUAN: PUERTO RICO.
WHEN YOU VISITED LILY.
YOU LIKED ME THEN, DIDN'T YOU?
SONNY: OF COURSE.
WE HAD A REAL GOOD TIME
TOGETHER.
JUAN: WHEN SHE DIED,
YOU CAME BACK AND GAVE ME
HER CROSS.
YOU CAME SO FAR.
I KNEW I WAS --
I KNEW I WAS SPECIAL TO YOU.
SONNY: YOU WERE.
YOU STILL ARE.
JUAN: YOU DON'T HAVE TO HIDE
IT ANYMORE, SONNY.
I FIGURED IT OUT.
SONNY: WHAT?
JUAN: THAT YOU'RE MY FATHER.
SONNY: JUAN, IF I WERE
YOUR FATHER, I'D TELL YOU.
I'D BE PROUD OF YOU AND LET
EVERYONE KNOW.
JUAN: THEN AFTERWARDS YOU --
YOU DIDN'T CALL ANYMORE
OR COME TO TAKE ME AWAY.
I KEPT WAITING.
THAT'S WHY I RAN AWAY AND I CAME
HERE ON MY OWN.
THOUGHT YOU'D BE HAPPY.
BUT YOU STILL DIDN'T WANT ME.

ALAN: YOU KNOW, EMILY HAS
REACHED THE AGE WHERE SHE THINKS
SHE'S SMARTER THAN HER PARENTS.
SHE NEEDS TO BE DISCIPLINED.
OTHERWISE, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE
COMPLETE CHAOS.
MONICA: SHE IS ALSO
AT THE AGE WHERE WE CANNOT LOCK
HER IN HER ROOM FOREVER.
I CAN BAR HER FROM THE HOSPITAL.
I'M STILL ACTING C.O.S.
ALAN: IF JUAN SURVIVES,
HE'S GOING TO BE RELEASED
FROM THE HOSPITAL AND SHE WILL
FIND ANOTHER WAY TO SEE HIM.
MAYBE WE COULD SEND
HER TO BOARDING SCHOOL.
MONICA: I LOST TOO MANY YEARS
TO BOARDING SCHOOLS
WITH A.J. AND JASON, AND I'M NOT
GOING TO MAKE THAT MISTAKE
AGAIN.
SO, APPEALING TO REASON DIDN'T
WORK.
WE KNOW THAT.
ALAN: YEAH, BUT DO WE?
I MEAN, SHE MAY HAVE RESISTED
OUR INITIAL WARNING,
BUT SHE COULD BE IN HER ROOM
RIGHT NOW REALIZING THAT WE WERE
RIGHT.
MONICA: WOULD YOU LIKE TO PUT
SOME MONEY ON THAT?
ALAN: UH-UH.
SHE HAS A GOOD HEAD
ON HER SHOULDERS, MONICA.
MAYBE ALL SHE NEEDED WAS SOME
TIME TO LOOK AT THE SITUATION
RATIONALLY.
MONICA: YEAH.
WE DID COME ON A LITTLE STRONG.
TEENAGERS NEED TO BE LED
TO A DECISION, NOT HAVE IT
IMPOSED ON THEM.
ALAN: EXACTLY.
MAYBE SHE COULDN'T HEAR US
BECAUSE WE WERE SAYING IT TOO
LOUD.
MONICA: MAYBE YOU'VE HIT
ON SOMETHING.
I MEAN, INSTEAD OF WORRYING
ABOUT HER MAKING MISTAKES,
WE NEED TO HAVE MORE FAITH
IN HER BETTER JUDGMENT.

MADELINE: HELLO, ELIZABETH.
ELIZABETH: OH, HI.
NIKOLAS IS EXPECTING ME
FOR LUNCH.
MADELINE: YOU'RE RIGHT
ON TIME.
HAVE YOU CHECKED IN HIS OFFICE?
ELIZABETH: WELL, THE DOOR
IS CLOSED.
I WAS AFRAID HE MIGHT BE
IN A MEETING.
MADELINE: NO.
HE'S WAITING FOR YOU.
I CAN LET HIM KNOW YOU'RE HERE,
IF YOU'D LIKE ME TO.
ELIZABETH: NO, THAT'S OK.
IT'LL BE MORE FUN IF I JUST
BARGE IN.
THANKS.

SONNY: LILY BROUGHT ME
TO MEET YOU BECAUSE SHE LOVED
YOU AND SHE WANTED ME TO KNOW
YOU.
BUT I'M NOT YOUR FATHER, JUAN.
YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO GIVE
THAT UP.
JUAN: YOU'RE STILL MAD AT ME.
WHY?
WHAT DID I DO?
SONNY: NOTHING. NOTHING.
YOU'RE --
IF YOU WERE MY SON, I'D BE PROUD
OF YOU, YOU KNOW?
I'D WANT MY SON TO BE JUST LIKE
YOU -- WILLING TO TAKE CHANCES,
FULL OF IDEAS OF HIS OWN.
BUT I DON'T --
I DON'T HAVE ANY CHILDREN, JUAN.
JUAN: YOU HAVE TO GIVE ME
ANOTHER CHANCE, SONNY.
JUST TELL ME WHY YOU DON'T WANT
ME.
SONNY: NO.
JUAN: TELL ME,
AND I'LL TRY TO MAKE IT BETTER.
SONNY?
[MONITOR ALARM BEEPS]
SONNY: WHOA.
JUAN? JUAN?
HEY!
SOMEBODY HELP ME!
I DON'T KNOW --
DOCTOR: WHAT'S GOING ON?
JUAN?
JUAN?
HE'S NOT BREATHING.
BOBBIE, HE'S NOT BREATHING.
HE'S IN RESPIRATORY ARREST.
BOBBIE: GOT A PULSE.
DOCTOR: HEY, YOU GUYS, WE GOT
RESPIRATORY ARREST.
BOBBIE: TAKE HIS BLOOD
PRESSURE.
DOCTOR: VENTILATING.
ORDERLY: CRASH CART'S UP
AND READY.
DOCTOR: WHAT DO YOU PALPATE?
BOBBIE: 60/40.
DOCTOR: OK, LET'S GET SOME
BLOOD TESTS.
SECOND DOCTOR: GET SOME
BLOOD.
DRAW ALL THE COLORS, DRAW ALL
THE COLORS.
GOT IT SET UP?
ORDERLY: SET UP.

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

NED: HELLO, DARLING.
CHLOE: KISS ME.
NED: AREN'T YOU SUPPOSED
TO BE ALEXIS?
CHLOE: KISS ME RIGHT NOW.

EMILY: JUAN ALMOST DIED
TODAY.
HE COULD BE DYING THIS SECOND.
HE HAD TO GO IN FOR EMERGENCY
SURGERY.
YOU PROBABLY DON'T EVEN CARE.

LAURA: WHAT ARE YOU TRYING
TO PULL?
