General Hospital Transcript Friday 7/23/99

Provided by Laura

JAX: CHECKING OUT
THE COMPETITION?
CHLOE: THAT'S WHAT I USUALLY
INTEND WHEN I PICK ONE OF THESE
UP IN AN AIRPORT.
I THINK, "AHA, NOW IN COMPLETE
ANONYMITY, I CAN CONVINCE MYSELF
THAT I AM SUPERIOR TO EVERY
DESIGNER IN THIS RAG."
BUT GENERALLY, I JUST BECOME
A PANTING FASHION VICTIM.
NICE SHOES.
JAX: WHAT AM I DOING HERE?
CHLOE: I'M SORRY.
ARE YOU LOST?
DO YOU NEED DIRECTIONS?
JAX: NO. I KNOW WHERE I AM.
BUT DON'T YOU WONDER WHY I'M
HERE?
I MEAN, WE BOTH KNOW THAT YOU'RE
GOING TO NEW YORK TO CLOSE
THE DEAL WITH THOSE TEXTILE
CHARACTERS WHO SUPPLY YOU.
BUT I'VE DECIDED TO TAKE
YOU ON MY PLANE INSTEAD.
CHLOE: OH.
JAX: YEP.
IT'S ALL FUELED AND READY TO GO.
AND ON THE WAY THERE, I CAN GIVE
YOU SOME COACHING IN THE ART
OF THE DEAL.
OR IF YOU WOULD PREFER,
I COULD -- WELL, I COULD GIVE
YOU A CRASH COURSE IN
NEGOTIATING AS A TEAM,
INCLUDING SUCH POPULAR FAVORITES
AS, FOR EXAMPLE, "I SAY YES,
BUT SHE SAYS NO" AND "TWO HEADS
ARE MORE INTIMIDATING THAN ONE."
DON'T YOU REMEMBER SAYING THAT
YOU COULD USE SOMEBODY LIKE ME
IN A BUSINESS CAPACITY?
CHLOE: YES, I DO.
AND ALTHOUGH I REALLY DOUBT
I NEED PROTECTION
FROM MY OWN SUPPLIERS, A RIDE IS
A RIDE IS A RIDE.
JAX: A RIDE IS A RIDE
IS A RIDE.
ARE YOU PREPARED TO RIDE SHOTGUN
UP IN THE COCKPIT WITH ME?
CHLOE: DO I NEED TO BUY
SUNSCREEN?
JAX: NO.
CHLOE: GOOD, BECAUSE IT'S
VERY EXPENSIVE IN THESE LITTLE
AIRPORT SHOPS.
JAX: ALL RIGHT.
THIS WAY.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
JAX: COME ON.

STEFAN: LAURA.
DIDN'T YOU GET MY MESSAGE THIS
MORNING?
LAURA: I DID.
I'M SORRY.
I KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO BE
UNHAPPY WITH ME.
AND COWARD THAT I AM,
I THOUGHT I COULD WAIT TO TELL
YOU ABOUT IT UNTIL LATER
TONIGHT, BUT I COULDN'T CONTAIN
MYSELF ANYMORE.
I HAD IT OUT WITH KATHERINE.

SONNY: HEY.
AHEM. HEY, JUAN.
SONNY: YOU KNOW,
YOU ALMOST HAD A LITTLE BROTHER.
COULD HAVE BEEN A GIRL, I GUESS.
A DAY DOESN'T GO BY WHEN I DON'T
PRAY FOR THEM --
YOUR MOTHER AND OUR CHILD THAT
WAS NEVER BORN.
IF I WERE GOD, I'D REFUSE
TO HEAR THAT.
THEY DON'T NEED MY PRAYERS,
I KNOW.
AND NOW YOU SHOW UP
WITH SO MUCH OF LILY IN YOU.
WOULD MY SON LOOK LIKE YOU?
I DON'T KNOW.
EMILY QUARTERMAINE TELLS ME
YOU'RE SMART, YOU'RE FEARLESS,
YOU MAKE HER LAUGH.
WOULD MY BOY HAVE DONE THAT?
SONNY: I W--
I WISH I COULD HAVE SAID YEAH.
I WISH I COULD HAVE TOLD YOU,
"YEAH, I'M YOUR FATHER."
WHAT MAKES YOU THINK I WOULD
HAVE ABANDONED YOU?
NEVER.
BUT YOU COME TO ME
IN LILY'S NAME,
AND THAT'S WHAT I DID.

[KNOCK ON DOOR]
LUKE: IT'S OPEN.
FELICIA: HI.
ARE YOU READY?
LUKE: I WAS A LOT MORE READY
LAST NIGHT BEFORE I STARTED
SHAVING.
FELICIA: WELL, IT'S NICE.
LUKE: OH, YOU THINK?
FELICIA: YEAH.
LUKE: I WENT A LITTLE FAR,
I THINK.
FELICIA: WELL, IT'S JUST
AS WELL, THOUGH.
YOU KNOW, I NEEDED THE NIGHT
TO GO OVER MY THOUGHTS.
LUKE: WHAT HAPPENED?
THEY SHRINK THE WASH?
FELICIA: ACTUALLY, I WAS TOO
ANGRY TO CONFRONT EDWARD LAST
NIGHT.
LUKE: ANGRY?
TOO ANGRY.
ANGER ISN'T APPROPRIATE,
I GUESS, WHEN YOU'RE TALKING
ABOUT MURDER?
FELICIA: I HATE WHAT
EDWARD DID.
BUT WHEN WE FIRST STARTED THIS,
I MADE A PROMISE TO MYSELF.
AND AS I RECALL, YOU MADE
A PROMISE, TOO.
LUKE: I DON'T RECALL EITHER
ONE OF US PROMISING ON A STACK
OF LIBRARY BOOKS.
FELICIA: I SWORE TO MYSELF
WHATEVER WE FOUND OUT,
I'M NOT GOING TO LET IT TOUCH
LILA.
AND I'M NOT GOING TO BREAK THAT
PROMISE.
LUKE: THEN WHY GO SEE EDWARD
AT ALL?
WHY DON'T WE JUST WRITE HIM
A NICE LITTLE NOTE SAYING,
"WE KNOW WHAT YOU DID.
HALF CENTURY AGO, YOU MURDERED
SOMEBODY AND STOLE HIS GAL.
BUT WE KNOW YOU FEEL BAD ABOUT
IT, AND SO DO WE, SO WE'RE NOT
GOING TO TELL ANYBODY,
AND YOU'LL NEVER DO TIME."

EMILY: HOW'S HE DOING?
SONNY: HE CAME OUT
OF SURGERY OK.
EMILY: WELL, THAT'S GOOD.
HE LOOKS A LOT BETTER.
HE'S GOT SOME COLOR
IN HIS CHEEKS.
SONNY: THEY GAVE HIM BLOOD,
I GUESS.
EMILY: DID HE SAY ANYTHING?
SONNY: HE HASN'T WOKEN
UP YET.
EMILY: IS THAT BAD?
SONNY: WELL, YOU KNOW,
THEY DON'T TELL ME MUCH.
EMILY: YOU KNOW, MY DAD SAYS
SOMETIMES THE BODY HAS TO SHUT
DOWN FOR REPAIR, KIND OF LIKE
WHEN A BUILDING'S GETTING
FIXED UP.
I GUESS SLEEP IS EXACTLY WHAT
HE NEEDS RIGHT NOW.
SONNY: MAKES SENSE.
EMILY: YOU LOOK LIKE
YOU COULD USE SOME YOURSELF --
NO OFFENSE.
SONNY: NO, I WENT HOME WHEN
YOU DID.
I CHANGED CLOTHE HAD SOME
DINNER.
EMILY: EVERY TIME I CALLED
HERE THE NURSE SAID YOU WERE
HERE.
THAT'S REALLY GOOD.
JUAN ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT
YOU HATED HIM, AND MAYBE NOW
HE'LL KNOW THAT YOU DON'T.
SONNY: YEAH, YEAH.
EMILY: I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS
SICK AND MY MOM WAS TAKING CARE
OF ME.
I ALWAYS KNEW WHEN SHE WAS HERE,
EVEN WHEN I WAS ASLEEP.
I'M SORRY THAT I COULDN'T BE
HERE FOR ALL THIS, BUT
MY PARENTS HAVE BEEN WATCHING ME
EVERY MINUTE, AND I'M GUESSING
THAT BARS ON MY BEDROOM WINDOW
IS NEXT.
SONNY: WELL, IT'S THEIR JOB
TO WORRY.
YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES THEY GET
SCARED FOR YOU.
EMILY: SCARED OF JUAN JUST
BECAUSE HE KNOWS YOU?
SONNY: WHY DON'T YOU JUST
TELL THEM IT WAS
A MISUNDERSTANDING WITHOUT
GIVING THEM ANY DETAILS?
YOU KNOW, A CASE OF MISTAKEN
IDENTITY.
I MEAN, JUAN THOUGHT THAT I WAS
GOING TO BE SOMETHING THAT
I'M NOT.
YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
I DON'T FORESEE ANY REAL
CONNECTION BETWEEN HIM AND ME
WHEN THIS THING'S STRAIGHTENED
OUT, ANYWAY.
MAYBE THAT WILL SETTLE ALAN
AND MONICA'S NERVES
A LITTLE BIT.
BESIDES, WHEN JUAN OPENS
HIS EYES, I'M SURE HE'D RATHER
SEE YOU HERE THAN ME.
EMILY: COULD I TELL
YOU SOMETHING?
SONNY: YEAH.
EMILY: I ALWAYS KNEW THAT
LOTS OF PEOPLE WERE SCARED
OF YOU.
SONNY: I KNOW.
EMILY: BUT I NEVER WAS.
I MEAN, YOUR VOICE IS SO SOFT.
IT'S LIKE YOU DON'T WANT
TO DISTURB ANYONE, AND
YOU ALWAYS LOOK LIKE YOU WANT
TO BE INVISIBLE AND YOU DON'T
WANT PEOPLE LOOKING AT YOU.
I KNOW WHAT THAT'S LIKE.
I'VE FELT THAT WAY BEFORE.
AND YOU MUST BE VERY SMART
AND VERY WISE AND DECIDED THAT
THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE
WERE MY BROTHER AND BRENDA.
DO YOU MIND IF I SAY HER NAME?
SONNY: NO.
NO.
EMILY: MOSTLY, I SEE
IN YOU WHAT I SAW BEFORE --
HOW SAD YOU ARE.
SONNY: WHAT GIVES YOU THAT
IDEA?
MONICA: EMILY.
PERHAPS I DIDN'T MAKE MYSELF
CLEAR THE LAST TIME.
I NEVER WANT TO SEE YOU AROUND
MY DAUGHTER AGAIN.

LAURA: YOU'RE ANGRY WITH ME.
STEFAN: OF COURSE NOT.
LAURA: BUT YOU WISH THAT
I HAD STEERED CLEAR
OF KATHERINE, DON'T YOU?
STEFAN: WELL, SHE IS CUNNING,
UNSCRUPULOUS, INFINITELY
SELF-PITYING.
SHE SEES US AS THE ENEMY.
SHE FEELS UTTERLY JUSTIFIED
IN HAVING MADE OUR SON
HER SEXUAL PLAYTHING.
I WOULDN'T PROVOKE HER.
LAURA: WELL, I CAN'T JUST LET
IT GO.
I CAN'T.
I WANT HER CLAWS OUT OF NIKOLAS.
STEFAN: EVEN IF IT MEANS
IT'LL MAKE HER MORE SYMPATHETIC,
MORE THE VICTIM IN HIS EYES AND,
HENCE, MORE ENTRENCHED
IN HIS LIFE?

FELICIA: LILA WON'T BE THERE.
SHE'S AT A BOOK CLUB ALL
AFTERNOON.
LUKE: WHAT ABOUT EDWARD?
FELICIA: HE'LL BE THERE.
I THINK IT'S GOING TO WORK OUT
FOR THE BEST.
LUKE: WHAT?
FELICIA: WHEN ALL THE UGLY
DETAILS COME OUT, LILA WON'T BE
THERE TO HEAR THEM.
LUKE: YOU DON'T THINK
SHE KNOWS ALREADY?
FELICIA: WELL, I THINK THAT
SHE OBVIOUSLY KNOWS SOMETHING.
MAYBE EDWARD TOLD HER THAT IT
WAS AN ACCIDENT AND HE WAS
AFRAID SOMEBODY MIGHT SUSPECT
FOUL PLAY OR SOMETHING.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS THAT
HE THAT HE TOLD HER.
BUT I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THAT
SHE'S LIVED WITH HIM ALL THESE
YEARS THINKING THAT HE WAS
A KILLER.
LUKE: SO YOU DON'T THINK
IT'S POSSIBLE FOR A WOMAN
TO LOVE A MAN WHO'S MORE THAN
A STONE'S THROW AWAY
FROM UPSTANDING?
THAT'S NOT GOOD NEWS FOR ME
NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK AT IT.
FELICIA: I DON'T THINK I SAID
THAT.
LUKE: AND YOU KNOW WHAT'S
EVEN WORSE?
WHEN THEY SAY THEY WILL,
BUT GIVEN THE CHANCE,
THEY DON'T.
I THINK WE BETTER GO.
EDWARD'S WAITING, RIGHT?
FELICIA: YEAH.
LUKE: YOU HAVE MY --
FELICIA: YOUR COAT, YES.
LUKE: YEP. THANK YOU.

STEFAN: LAURA, YOU KNOW HOW
KATHERINE WILL STRIKE BACK
IF YOU ANTAGONIZE HER.
SHE'LL MANIPULATE NIKOLAS
INTO BELIEVING HE IS
HER DEFENDER.
AND HE WILL CALL YOU A BULLY,
HE'LL INSIST HE CAN LIVE HIS OWN
LIFE, SO ON AND SO FORTH.
FROM THE DAWN OF TIME, THOSE WHO
PREY ON YOUNG PEOPLE USE
THE SAME APPROACH -- THEY DUPE
THEIR VICTIMS INTO WILLING
ACCOMPLICES.
LAURA: I'LL BE PREPARED
FOR THAT.
STEFAN: NO MATTER
THE PRETEXT, I SHOULD HAVE
LISTENED TO ALEXIS AND KEPT
MY DISTANCE FROM KATHERINE.
I'M SORRY, LAURA.
THIS IS MY FAULT.
I ENMESHED KATHERINE'S LIFE
WITH OURS THE NIGHT I SHOT HER.
LAURA: THEN LUKE WAS RIGHT
ABOUT HOW THAT HAPPENED?
STEFAN: YES.
IT WAS ACCIDENTAL, AS BOTH
HE AND KATHERINE KNEW.
AND IF SHE HAD ACCUSED ME,
I WOULDN'T HAVE DENIED IT.
BUT THE FACT THAT SHE DIDN'T,
I TOOK FOR LOVE.
SHE NEEDED ME.
SHE CONNED ME.
I WAS ALL SHE HAD.
AND THE WRONG I HAD DONE HER WAS
SO EGREGIOUS.
SHE BECAME LIKE AN IMAGE,
REFRACTED BY MEMORY,
DISTORTED BY ALL THE YEARS
OF FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU --
THE DEFINING EVENT OF MY LIFE.
WELL, I'M KEEPING THE FINANCE
COMMITTEE WAITING, AND YOU HAVE
AN APPOINTMENT SCHEDULE TO KEEP.
LAURA: THIS WAS IMPORTANT,
TOO.
STEFAN: YOU REALLY THOUGHT
I'D BE ANGRY?
NO.
THAT WAS YOUR OTHER LIFE.
THAT'S NOT US.
YOUR TRUE NATURE IS NOT A SECRET
THAT NEED EVER BE KEPT FROM ME.
YES, I WISH YOU WOULD STEER
CLEAR OF KATHERINE, BUT I DON'T
CONTROL YOU.
IN FACT, LET'S BE HONEST ABOUT
IT -- YOU ARE THE WARDEN.
YOU SEE ME AS LITTLE OR AS MUCH
AS YOU LIKE.
OUR HAPPINESS IS AT
YOUR COMMAND.
YOU ARE ITS KEEPER.
LAURA: STEFAN, THAT'S --
STEFAN: NO -- I AM
YOUR PRISONER.
DON'T THINK I DON'T SEE
THE POETIC JUSTICE IN THAT.

FAISON: YEAH, I'M SORRY.
MRS. SPENCER JUST WALKED PAST.
SPEAKING OF ADVERSARIES
AND THEIR LOVED ONES,
ORDER TWO DOZEN OF WHITE ROSES
AND HAVE THEM SENT TO THE USUAL
PLACE IN MEMORY OF --
YEAH, ANNA DEVANE.
THAT'S A LOVELY FACE I'LL NEVER
FORGET.
YEAH. THANK YOU.

EMILY: SONNY DIDN'T DO
ANYTHING WRONG.
MONICA: NEVER MIND SONNY.
SONNY IS NOT MY CHILD.
SONNY DOESN'T LIVE IN MY HOUSE.
AND SONNY DIDN'T TELL ME THAT
HE WAS GOING TO SPEND THE DAY
WITH ELIZABETH WEBBER.
EMILY: MOM, LOOK AT HIM.
WHAT COULD HE POSSIBLY DO TO ME?
MONICA: GOOME, EMILY.
EMILY: DOES IT EVEN MATTER
TO YOU THAT HE'S MY FRIEND?
MONICA: OH, IT MATTERS A LOT.
EMILY: I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE
TO SAY ONE WORD TO HIM SINCE
THIS WHOLE THING STARTED.
MONICA: AND THAT'S THEAY
IT'S GOING TO STAY.
NOW, IF YOU WON'T GO WILLINGLY
DOWN TO THE LOBBY AND CALL
REGINALD TO COME AND PICK
YOU UP, THEN I WILL CALL
SECURITY TO COME AND GET YOU,
TAKE YOU DOWN TO MY CAR,
AND DRIVE YOU HOME.
IT COULD BE A LITTLE HUMILIATING
FOR US, BUT WE'VE SURVIVED
WORSE.
EMILY: I CAN'T BELIEVE
YOU WOULD DO THIS TO ME.
MONICA: BELIEVE IT.
EMILY: FINE.
BUT IF JUAN DIES AND I DON'T GET
TO SAY GOOD-BYE TO HIM,
I WILL NEVER FORGIVE
YOU FOR THAT FOR AS LONG
AS I LIVE.
MONICA: WELL, THAT'S A CHANCE
I'M GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE.
MONICA: CONGRATULATIONS.
ANOTHER CHILD IN THE HOSPITAL,
MY DAUGHTER TURNED AGAINST ME.
ALL IN A DAY'S WORK FOR YOU,
ISN'T IT?

EDWARD: SO, YOU'RE HEADED
TO THE LINKS AFTER THIS, HUH?
REGINALD.
LUKE: WE DON'T REALLY KNOW
WHERE WE'RE HEADED.
THAT DEPENDS.
EDWARD: OH, YOU FOUND A CLUB
THAT WOULD ACCEPT YOU, HUH?
REGINALD, WOULD IT BE TOO MUCH
OF AN IMPOSITION TO ASK
OUR GUESTS IF THERE'S ANYTHING
THEY WOULD LIKE?
REGINALD: WELL, I WASN'T
AWARE ANYONE WAS HERE.
EDWARD: OH, OF COURSE NOT,
BECAUSE I'M SURE MISS LETICIA
HAS MUCH MORE TO OFFER THAN
THE DUTIES YOU ARE BEING PAID
TO PERFORM.
REGINALD: CAN I GET
YOU ANYTHING?
COFFEE, TEA, WINE?
LUKE: WINE?
FELICIA: NO.
LUKE: NO.
FELICIA: THANK YOU.
LUKE: THANK YOU.
REGINALD: OK.
WELL, IF YOU NEED ANYTHING ELSE,
JUST BELLOW.
FELICIA: REGINALD, WHEN WILL
LILA BE BACK?
REGINALD: NOT TILL DINNER,
I DON'T IMAGINE.
SHE'S AT HER BOOK CLUB.
EDWARD: BUT YOU KNEW THAT,
DIDN'T YOU?
FELICIA: YES.
THANK YOU.
EDWARD: WELL, I'M NOT SUCH
A DAZZLING CONVERSATIONALIST
THAT I DON'T REALIZE THAT
THERE'S ONLY ONE SUBJECT THAT
OPLE WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS
WITH ME WHEN LILA ISN'T HERE.
AND THAT'S MONEY.
HOW MUCH DO YOU NEED?
LUKE: WELL.
A COUPLE OF DIGITS WITH SEVEN
ZEROS, OR SIX --
NO? NO?
WE CAN'T BE BOUGHT, EDWARD.
EDWARD: I ASSUME THIS MONEY
IS FOR EXPENSES ASSOCIATED
WITH MY WIFE'S MEMOIRS AND NOT
FOR BUYING HIM CIGARS
OR 5-IRONS.
FELICIA: PUT YOU CHECKBOOK
AWAY.
WE DON'T WANT YOUR MONEY.
ALTHOUGH, I THINK THESE MEMOIRS
HAVE TURNED OUT TO BE A LITTLE
BIT MORE EXPENSIVE THAN ANY
OF US EVER DREAMED.
EDWARD: I DON'T LIKE
PREAMBLES, AND I DON'T SCARE
EASILY.
SO WHY DON'T YOU JUST TELL ME
WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT.
FELICIA: ELLIOT THOMPSON,
THE MAN THAT YOU MURDERED.

EDWARD: MY DEAR, YOU SIMPLY
MUST REIN IN YOUR IMAGINATION.
IT IS TRUE THAT ELLIOT IS DEAD.
MAY HE REST IN PEACE.
HE DIED AN HONORABLE DEATH
ON THE BATTLEFIELD.
FELICIA: NO.
THAT'S THE STORY THAT
YOU INVENTED TO COVER
FO EDWARD: NOW, LOOK, I HAVE
A SENSE OF HUMOR WHEN IT COMES
TO HAVING MYSELF MALIGNED,
BUT WHEN IT COMES TO SLANDERING
A MAN WHO DIED FOR HIS
COUNTRY --
FELICIA: I HAVE HIS SERVICE
RECORD, EDWARD.
LUKE: AND THE PHOTOGRAPHS
STAPLED TO THEM.
FELICIA: HERE IS A PICTURE
OF YOU AND ELLIOT.
I FOUND THIS PICTURE AMONG
THE THINGS THAT LILA GAVE ME.
LUKE: NOTICE THE RESEMBLANCE?
FELICIA: I STARTED THINKING
ABOUT THAT.
AND SURE ENOUGH, HERE'S
THE OFFICIAL PHOTO OF ELLIOT
THE DAY THAT HE REPORTED
FOR DUTY.
LUKE: EXCEPT THAT AIN'T
ELLIOT, EDWARD.
THAT'S YOU.
EDWARD: OH, DON'T BE
RIDICULOUS.
YOU YOURSELF SAID THERE'S
A RESEMBLANCE.
AND PHOTOGRAPHY BACK THEN IS
CEAINLY NOT WHAT IT IS TODAY.
LOOK HOW FADED THE IMAGE IS.
IT'S FADING EVEN NOW
AS WE SPEAK.
AND NOBODY COULD SAY WITH ANY
KIND OF CERTAINTY WHICH ONE
OF US THIS ACTUALLY WAS.
LUKE: YEAH, WELL,
LUCKILY, WE HAVE TO JUST
RE ON THE PHOTOGRAPHS.
WE'VE GOT A LETTER.
WE'VE GOT ENOUGH OF A LETTER
THAT YOU WROTE TO LILA WHEN
YOU WERE POSING AS ELLIOT.
NOW,NING
IT ", E."
BUT I'M POSITIVE THAT
A HANDWRITING ANALYSIS WILL
PROVE THAT YOU WROTE THAT
LETTER.
FELICIA: EDWARD, WE KNOW
THE REST.
I JUST WANT TO HEAR IT FROM YOU.

JAX: KETCHUP, MUSTARD,
RELISH.
CHLOE: I KNEW THOSE.
JAX: OH, OK.
CRUSHED GARLIC, I THINK -- NO,
WAIT.
HORSERADISH.
AND THAT'S SALSA.
CHLOE: WELL, THAT'S VERY
EXOTIC.
JAX: AND THAT'S SOME BEAN
THING.
CHLOE: SOUNDS CHOCK FULL
OF PROTEIN AND NUTRIENTS.
JAX: IT DOES, DOESN'T IT?
I'M NOT SURE HOW MUCH OF THAT IS
ACTUALLY IN THE HOTDOG, THOUGH.
CHLOE: THANK YOU. OH.
JAX: OH, THANKS.
CHLOE: THIS IS JUST GRAND.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
JAX: COME ON.
I WANTED TO TAKE YOU SOMEPLACE
ASTONISHING AND WORLD-FAMOUS
WITH, LIKE, FOUR WAITERS PER
TABLE, BUT YOU DIDN'T WANT
TO GO.
CHLOE: NO, THIS IS
ASTONISHING.
I HAVE NEVER HAD A HOTDOG
IN CENTRAL PARK BEFORE,
OR IN ANY PARK.
AND I CAN TELL YOU THERE HAS
NEVER BEEN A HOTDOG LIKE THIS
ONE, NOT EVEN IN BOOKS.
YOU KNOW, I'LL HAVE TO CHECK
WITH MY ACCOUNTANT, BUT I THINK
I AM MUCH RICHER NOW THAN I WAS
THIS MORNING WHEN YOU SCOOPED ME
UP AT THE AIRPORT.
NOT ONLY AM I GETTING ANYTHING
I WANT FOR FREE.
THEY ARE NOW USING MY NAME
IN THEIR TRADE ADVERTISEMENTS
AND PAYING ME.
JAX: YEAH, IT WAS KIND
OF FUN, WASN'T IT?
ALTHOUGH, I DO HAVE TO ADMIT
I SHOULD HAVE --
I SHOULD HAVE STOPPED
AT THE SIX MONTHS EXCLUSIVE.
I JUST COULDN'T HELP MYSELF.
CHLOE: NO, YOU COULDN'T.
I THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT SOMEONE
WAS GOING TO HAVE TO BE
TRANQUILIZED.
JAX: YOU WANT TO KNOW
MY SECRET?
LATELY, EVERY OPPONENT I'VE
FACED HAS BECOME YOUR
AUNT GERTRUDE.
CHLOE: AND WHAT DOES THIS
FRIGHTENING MENTAL EXERCISE DO
FOR YOU?
JAX: THE WOMAN IS INTENT
ON RUINING YOUR LIFE.
THAT PUTS ME IN A
TAKE-NO-PRISONERS MOOD IS WHAT
IT DOES.
YEP.

MONICA: HOW LONG WAS EMILY
HERE?
SONNY: I DON'T KNOW.
MAYBE 20 MINUTES.
MONICA: DID YOU SEND A CAR
FOR HER?
SONNY: I DON'T KNOW HOW
SHE GOT HERE.
MONICA, I UNDERSTAND WHY
YOU WOULD BE WORRIED AND HAVE
RESERVATIONS ABOUT JUAN,
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
MONICA: OH, DON'T. DON'T.
SONNY: THE SITUATION IS NOT
WHAT YOU THINK IT IS.
MONICA: PLEASE, DON'T.
DON'T GIVE ME THAT SOULFUL,
SINCERE LOOK OYOURS.
IF THERE'S ONE WOMAN ON THIS
PLANET THAT'S IMMUNE TO IT,
IT'S ME.
SEE, I HAVE WATCHED YOU WEAVE
JASON INTO YOUR SICK,
DESPERATE LIFESTYLE, SO I KNOW
EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE DOING.
I WATCHED FIRSTHAND WHAT YOU DID
TO ROBIN AND STONE AND NOW
PROBABLY THAT KID IN THERE.
LOOK AT ME.
I WANT YOU TO SEE IN MY EYES
THAT I MEAN IT FROM THE BOTTOM
OF MY SOUL WHEN I TELL
YOU I WILL FIGHT YOU TILL DEATH
IF NECESSARY IN ORDER TO PROTECT
MY DAUGHTER FROM YOU
AND THE FILTH THAT
SURROUNDS YOU.
MAY I HELP YOU?
MAN: I WAS TOLD --
EXCUSE ME.
I WAS TOLD THAT I COULD FIND
DR. QUARTERMAINE HERE,
THE HOSPITAL CHIEF OF STAFF.
MONICA: YES, THAT IS ME.
MAN: I WOULD LIKE A REPORT --
EXCUSE ME.
ARMANDO SANTIAGO.
THAT IS MY SON WHO IS FIGHTING
FOR HIS LIFE
BECAUSE OF HIM.

ARMANDO: JUAN LEFT
HIS COUNTRY, HIS HOME, A FATHER
WHO LOVED HIM FOR WHAT?
TO COME AND FIND YOU?
SONNY: I UNDERSTAND,
BUT I DIDN'T ASK FOR THAT.
ARMANDO: YOU TOLD ME THAT
HE WOULD BE SAFE.
YOU TOLD ME THAT HE WOULD BE
IN YOUR CARE UNTIL YOU COULD
BRING HIM BACK HOME.
SONNY: I TRIED!
ARMANDO: YOU TRIED?
HE WAS BEATEN NEARLY TO DEATH.
AND SOME SAY MOST LIKELY
BY AN ENEMY OF YOURS.
IS THAT YOUR IDEA OF SAFE?
IS THAT YOUR IDEA OF CARE?
MONICA: MR. SANTIAGO,
AS JUAN'S FATHER, YOU CAN HAVE
HIM BARRED FROM YOUR SON'S ROOM
IF YOU FEEL HIS PRESENCE IS
DETRIMENTAL.
ARMANDO: COULD YOU SEE TO IT,
DOCTOR?
MONICA: I WILL MAKE
THE NECESSARY NOTIFICATIONS.
ARMANDO: CAN YOU REALLY THINK
YOU ARE BLAMELESS IN THIS,
MR. CORINTHOS?
THE DAY YOU CAME TO JUAN
AND TOLD HIM THE RIVERA WOMAN
WAS DEAD AND GAVE HIM
HER CROSS -- THAT'S WHAT STARTED
THE CHAIN OF EVENTS THAT HAS
ENDED HERE AND MAY SOON END
MY BOY'S LIFE.
SONNY: FINE, FINE.
I'LL BE THE VILLAIN.
BUT WHAT DOES THAT MAKE YOU?
IF JUAN'S LIFE WITH
YOU IN MAYAGUEZ WAS SO PERFECT,
WHY'D HE COME LOOKING FOR ME
IN THE FIRST PLACE?

CHLOE: I WAS JUST THINKING
HOW PLEASANT IT WILL BE THAT
I WILL HAVE KNOWN YOU MY WHOLE
LIFE.
BUT HOW CAN IT BE PLEASANT IF IT
HASN'T HAPPENED YET?
JAX: MAYBE IT WON'T.
CHLOE: OH, IT WILL.
JAX: WELL, YOU KNOW,
PEOPLE STRIKE UP FRIENDSHIPS ALL
THE TIME.
THEY BECOME INSEPARABLE,
HOLD EACH OTHER IN THE HIGHEST
REGARD, AND THEN FIVE YEARS DOWN
THE LINE, THEIR RELATIONSHIP IS
REDUCED TO A LATE CHRISTMAS
CARD, IF THAT.
AHEM. SORRY.
I'M MAKING THIS SOUND HORRIBLE,
AREN'T I?
BUT IT'S ONLY HUMAN.
CHLOE: JAX, YOU MARRIED
SOMEONE FOR ME.
WHEREVER YOU ARE ON EARTH
FROM NOW ON, YOU WILL NEVER
ESCAPE MY TIRESOME,
REPETITIVE EXPRESSIONS
OF GRATITUDE -- OR MY CHRISTMAS
CARDS.
JAX: BUT I DIDN'T MARRY YOU.
CHLOE: YOU DIDN'T NEED TO.
I DID THINK FOR A MOMENT THAT --
JAX: WHAT?
CHLOE: WELL, IT JUST GOT
SO CONFUSING THAT ANYONE MIGHT
HAVE MARRIED ANYONE.
JAX: WELL, WHAT NED SHOULD
HAVE DONE IN LAS VEGAS WHEN
YOUR AUNT GERTRUDE CAME
IN WAVING HER PRECIOUS
DEFINITION OF
"HAPPILY MARRIED" -- NED SHOULD
HAVE MARRIED ALEXIS.
CHLOE: WHY?
JAX: BECAUSE THEN WE WOULDN'T
HAVE EDWARD AND GERTRUDE
SNIFFING AROUND LIKE
BLOODHOUNDS.
AND NED AND ALEXIS HAVE BEEN
A COUPLE FOR I DON'T KNOW HOW
LONG, AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN
ACCEPTED FOR THEM, OR IT WOULD
HAVE BEEN EXPECTED,
AT LEAST, FOR THEM TO GET
MARRIED.
CHLOE: WELL, THAT WOULD BE
VERY CLEVER, BUT I WOULD BE
RUNNING OUT OF TIME AND HAVE
NO HUSBAND OR A PROSPECT OF ONE.
JAX: OH, I THINK YOU WOULD
HAVE HAD A PROSPECT.
CHLOE: BUT I WOULDN'T WANT
A REAL PROSPECT OR A RIGHT
PERSON.
THAT WOULD BE A DISASTER.
JAX: WHY?
CHLOE: BECAUSE I'D BE
MARRYING HIM FOR THE WRONG
REASONS.
JAX: OH.
CHLOE: EVEN IF I WERE
MARRYING HIM FOR THE RIGHT
REASONS, HOW WOULD HE EVER KNOW
THAT?
IT WOULD BE THE WORST THING
I COULD IMAGINE.
I WOULD WANT TO LOOK AT HIM
AND LOVE HIM AND CARE FOR HIM
AND TELL HIM ALL THE THINGS
IN MY HEART.
AND THE MORE I WOULD TRY
TO CONVINCE HIM THAT I MEANT
THEM, THE MORE HE WOULD THINK
I DIDN'T.
JAX: RIGHT.
YEAH, HAVE YOU EVER HAD A CLOSE
CALL DRIVING IN TRAFFIC,
WHERE NO ONE'S HURT
AND YOUR CAR'S NOT EVEN DINGED,
BUT YOUR BODY GIVES A LITTLE
SHUDDER AWAY AS IF IT FELT
THE IMPACT?
WELL, IF THERE ARE TIMES THAT
WE REMEMBER THINGS THAT HAVEN'T
HAPPENED YET, THEN MAYBE THERE
ARE TIMES WE REMEMBER THAT,
WELL, THINGS THAT COULD HAVE
HAPPENED OR ALMOST HAPPENED,
BUT DIDN'T HAPPEN -- AND THANK
GOD THEY DIDN'T HAPPEN.
CHLOE: YES.
I CAN THINK OF AN EXAMPLE.
JAX: YEAH?
CHLOE: I HAVE HAD MUCH MORE
FUN HOLDING THIS THAN I EVER
WOULD HAVE HAD EATING IT.
AND I REALLY THOUGHT
FOR A MOMENT THAT I MIGHT,
BUT NOW I KNOW I NEVER WILL.
SO WOULD YOU LIKE IT?
JAX: OH, SURE.

EDWARD: YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT
IT'S LIKE -- EITHER ONE
OF YOU -- WHAT IT'S LIKE TO LIVE
IN A COUNTRY ENGAGED
IN A JUST WAR.
EVERY MAN WORTHY OF BEING CALLED
ONE WANTED TO ENLIST,
WHETHER OR NOT HE WAS FIT
TO SERVE.
YOUNG MEN WHOSE LUNGS HAD BEEN
SCARRED BY T.B. AS A CHILD GOT
A FRIEND TO TAKE THE PHYSICAL
FOR THEM.
AND IF LIKE ELLIOT YOU HAD
SOMEONE WILLING AND ABLE TO GO
THROUGH BASIC TRAINING --
LUKE: HEY, THAT'S A NICE TRY,
EDWARD.
WHERE'S ELLIOT BURIED?
EDWARD: OH, SOMEWHERE
OVERSEAS.
YOU'D HAVE TO ASK LILA.
SHE WOULD KNOW.
LUKE: YOU SHIPPED OUT
IN HIS PLACE.
AND THE MINUTE YOU HIT
THE BATTLEFIELD, YOU DROPPED
HIS I.D. AND HIS DOG TAGS
AND THEN YOU WENT AWOL.
EDWARD: FELICIA, YOU KNOW
THIS MAN.
HE IS A CASE STUDY IN CLASS
RESENTMENT AND PARANOIA.
WHY DO YOU LET HIM FILL
YOUR HEAD WITH SUCH SUSPICIONS?
COME ON.
FELICIA: BELIEVE ME, I PUT UP
A FIGHT.
I DENIED IT UNTIL I COULDN'T
DENY IT ANYMORE, JUST LIKE
YOU'RE DOING RIGHT NOW.
EDWARD: WHAT'S IN THE BAG?
LUKE: YOU SUMMONED ELLIOT
THE -- PROBABLY THE NIGHT BEFORE
HE WAS TO SHIP OUT.
THAT WAY, AFTER YOU TOLD HIM
WHAT YOU WERE GOING TO TELL HIM,
THERE WOULDN'T BE SOME JEALOUS
EX-SUITOR HANGING AROUND
TO CAUSE YOU PROBLEMS.
YOU TOLD HIM THAT LILA WAS
BREAKING OFF THE ENGAGEMENT,
THAT SHE DIDN'T WANT TO SEE HIM
ANYMORE.
BUT HE DIDN'T BELIEVE YOU.
HE WANTED TO HEAR IT FROM HER.
MAYBE YOU DIDN'T BELIEVE THAT
SHE WOULD BREAK IT OFF WITH HIM,
OR MAYBE YOU WERE TRYING TO DO
THE NOBLE THING AND TAKE CARE
OF HER AGAINST HER FATHER'S
WRATH.
BUT EITHER WAY, ELLIOT
WOULDN'T GO.
HE WANTED TO TALK TO LILA FIRST
BECAUSE HE WAS STUBBORN
AND BECAUSE HE WAS IN LOVE.
YOU COULDN'T CONVINCE HIM
OTHERWISE.
SO HE TURNED, HE WAS STARTING
TO GO TO LILA.
SUDDENLY, YOU FIND A FIRE POKER
IN YOUR HAND.
YOU SWING, YOU BEAN HIM.
HE'S ON THE FLOOR, HE ISN'T
BREATHING.
NOW WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?
YOU'RE GOING TO TELL LILA IT WAS
AN ACCIDENT.
WELL, THE ONLY ACCIDENT WAS THAT
ELLIOT DIDN'T JUST HANG HIS HEAD
AND GO AWAY WHEN YOU TOLD
HIM TO.
EDWARD: NOW, YOU ARE BOTH
OBVIOUSLY GIFTED STORYTELLERS.
AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT IS --
THE STORY OF SOMETHING THAT
MIGHT HAVE HAPPENED OVER
50 YEARS AGO.
BUT WHO CAN SAY?
LUKE: THIS CAN, EDWARD.
THIS CAN.

EMILY: I'M GOING TO BE
IN SO MUCH TROUBLE FOR THIS.
BUT I DON'T CARE.
JUAN, SHOULD I HAVE CALLED
THE POLICE?
I DON'T KNOW.
SONNY SAYS THAT I DID THE RIGHT
THING BY NOT TELLING ANYONE WHAT
I SAW.
WHAT IF SOREL COMES LOOKING
FOR YOU?
I'LL TELL HIM THAT YOU DON'T
REMEMBER ANYTHING, THAT NOBODY
ELSE KNOWS ANYTHING.
EMILY: JUAN?
JUAN: HEY --
IT'S MY GIRLFRIEND.
EMILY: HOW BAD DO YOU FEEL?
JUAN: WHERE'D HE GO?
EMILY: WHO, SONNY?
JUAN: MY FATHER.

JOHNNY: EVENING.
SONNY: JOHNNY, GO AHEAD
AND TAKE OFF.
I'M -- I'M IN FOR THE EVENING.
JOHNNY: WILL FRANCIS BE
RELIEVING?
SONNY: OH, BOY.

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

JAX: I KNOW WHAT I'M GOING
TO GET YOU FOR A WEDDING
PRESENT.

LUKE: WE GOT IT ALL WRONG,
DIDN'T WE?
LILA: ALL WRONG.

EMILY: SONNY TOLD ME HE ISN'T
YOUR FATHER.

TAMMY: SONNY ASKED
YOU TO STAY AWAY.
WHY CAN'T YOU GIVE HIM THAT --
IF NOT FOR HIS SAKE,
THEN FOR YOURS?
