Provided by Laura

NIKOLAS: HEY.
LAURA: HI.
I HOPE I'M NOT TOO EARLY.
NIKOLAS: OF COURSE NOT.
COME IN.
LAURA: FOR YOU.
NIKOLAS: THANK YOU,
THANK YOU.
LAURA: COOKIES, MADE
BY LESLEY LU.
SHE WAS SO PROUD OF THE WAY
THEY TURNED OUT, SHE INSISTED
THAT I BRING SOME TO
YOU ON MY WAY TO WORK THIS
MORNING.
NIKOLAS: THAT'S GREAT.
I'LL CALL HER LATER AND TELL
HER THANK YOU.
LAURA: WELL, THAT'S GREAT.
YOU KNOW, SHE LOVES GETTING
PHONE CALLS.
MAKES HER FEEL REALLY GROWN-UP.
HEY, ARE YOU OK?
NIKOLAS: SURE. WHY?
LAURA: I DON'T KNOW.
YOU SEEM A LITTLE TENSE.
NIKOLAS: I'M TIRED MOSTLY.
I HAD A HARD TIME FALLING ASLEEP
LAST NIGHT.
LAURA: WHY?
SOMETHING BOTHERING YOU?
NIKOLAS: KATHERINE CAME
BY TO SEE ME.

KATHERINE: GOOD MORNING.
ELIZABETH: BLACK COFFEE?
SAME AS USUAL?
KATHERINE: NO.
I THINK I'LL HAVE HERB TEA.
THAT COFFEE'S A LITTLE ROUGH
ON THE SYSTEM.
OH, THANK YOU.
YOU'RE AWFULLY QUIET.
ELIZABETH: I'M BUSY.
KATHERINE: ISN'T THAT ALWAYS
THE WAY IT IS?
WE GET SO CONSUMED WITH OUR WORK
THAT WE FORGET TO APPRECIATE
OUR LITTLE BLESSINGS WE'RE
GIVEN.
YOU KNOW, CUSTOMER RELATION
SKILLS REALLY ARE THE KEY
TO SUCCESS.
IF I WERE YOU, I'D WORK
ON IMPROVING THEM.
ELIZABETH: DO YOU MIND
IF I TAKE A BREAK?
TAMMY: WELL, YOU'RE NOT DUE
FOR 20 MINUTES.
ELIZABETH: I'M NOT GOING
TO MAKE IT.
TAMMY: OK, TAKE OFF.
EMILY: HEY.
HI --
ELIZABETH: COME WITH ME.
EMILY: OK.
KATHERINE: YES, I WOULD LIKE
TO ORDER A MATERNITY DRESS.
ELIZABETH: OK, I KNOW
I SHOULDN'T LET HER GET TO ME.
I KNOW THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT
SHE WANTS.
BUT EVERY TIME I SEE THAT WOMAN,
MY WHOLE BODY JUST STIFFENS.
EMILY: WHY DON'T YOU JUST
IGNORE HER?
ELIZABETH: OH, THAT DOESN'T
WORK.
EMILY: YEAH, BUT YOU DON'T
HAVE TO HAVE A CONVERSATION
WITH HER.
I MEAN, IF SHE SAYS,
"HELLO," JUST DON'T ANSWER.
ELIZABETH: ALL RIGHT.
WAIT A MINUTE.
AREN'T YOU GROUNDED?
EMILY: NOT ANYMORE.
ELIZABETH: WHAT HAPPENED?
EMILY: WELL, MY PARENTS
REALIZED THAT IT REALLY WASN'T
DOING ANYTHING FOR EITHER OF US.
BESIDES, I PLAYED MY MOST
OBNOXIOUS MUSIC VERY HIGH
AND ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT.
SO IT WAS "EITHER LET ME OUT
OF THE HOUSE OR LOSE THE REST
OF YOUR HEARING."
ELIZABETH: NICE MOVE.
EMILY: YEAH.
THERE'S ONLY ONE BAD THING.
THEY STILL DON'T WANT ME TO SEE
JUAN ANYMORE.
I MEAN, I CAN GO WHERE EVER
I WANT, BUT HE CAN'T BE THERE.
ELIZABETH: OH, EM, I'M SORRY.
I KNOW HOW BADLY YOU WANT TO BE
WITH HIM.
EMILY: YEAH, I GUESS IT
DOESN'T MATTER MUCH ANYMORE.
HIS FATHER'S TAKING HIM BACK
TO PUERTO RICO AS SOON AS HE CAN
TRAVEL.

TONY: FRANKLY, I'M A LITTLE
BIT STUMPED HERE.
ARMANDO: WHAT?
WHAT'S THE MATTER?
TONY: WELL, WE'VE DONE
AN M.R.I., THE CAT SCAN,
AND NEITHER ONE OF THEM SHOWED
ANY CAUSE FOR THE NUMBNESS
IN JUAN'S LEG.
HIS SPINE HASN'T BEEN
COMPROMISED.
THERE'S NO APPARENT NERVE
DAMAGE.
AND, I MEAN, OBVIOUSLY HE'S
IN SERIOUS CONDITION,
BUT WE JUST CAN'T SEEM TO FIND
THE CAUSE.
ARMANDO: PERHAPS I CAN HELP.
TONY: I DIDN'T REALIZE
YOU WERE A DOCTOR.
ARMANDO: I'M A PARENT.
WOULD YOU MIND, DR. JONES,
IF I HAVE A MOMENT WITH MY SON?
TONY: NO.
THAT'S FINE.
I'LL -- I'LL DROP BY LATER.
ARMANDO: I KNOW YOU WANT
TO STAY IN PORT CHARLES,
BUT THIS IS NOT THE WAY
TO DO IT.
JUAN: WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
ARMANDO: TELL ME THE TRUTH.
IS THE PAIN IN YOUR LEG REAL,
OR HAVE YOU BEEN FAKING IT?

HANNAH'S VOICE: I'M JUST
TALKING TO MYSELF NOW, RIGHT?
OK, FINE.
I GOT IT.
I WON'T COME AROUND ANYMORE
UNTIL YOU'RE READY.
OR IF YOU'RE READY.
[FOOTSTEPS]
JASON: EVERYTHING OK?
SONNY: HOW WAS THE MEETING?
JASON: CARLOS IS GLAD YOU'RE
BACK IN CHARGE.
HE HAS A FEW ISSUES, BUT NOTHING
THAT CAN'T BE WORKED OUT.
SONNY: I WAS EXPECTING
YOU TO REPORT LAST NIGHT.
JASON: WE RAN LATE.
SONNY: CARLOS HAVE ANY
OBJECTIONS TO DEALING
WITH YOU INSTEAD OF ME?
JASON: NO, HE'S DEALT WITH ME
BEFORE.
HE KNOWS I CAN SPEAK FOR YOU.
SONNY: NOT RECENTLY.
SO THAT'S IT, YOU KNOW?
YOU'RE BACK IN?

SONNY: I'VE HEARD A LOT
OF MEN CLAIM THEY WANTED OUT
OF THE ORGANIZATION.
SWORE THEY'D CHANGE THEIR NAME,
THEIR FACE, WHATEVER IT TOOK.
BUT YOU DID IT.
YOU BUILT A LIFE FOR YOURSELF.
YOU GAVE YOURSELF A CHANCE.
YOU'RE GOING TO TELL ME YOU'RE
GOING TO THROW EVERYTHING AWAY
FOR THIS?
JASON: THIS IS WHERE
I BELONG.
SONNY: NO.
JASON: WHY NOT?
SONNY: DO I LOOK LIKE
I'M HAVING A GOOD TIME?
JASON: THE BUSINESS DIDN'T
CAUSE THIS.
THIS IS HOW YOU DEAL WITH IT.
SONNY: OH, SO YOU THINK
I CAN'T HANDLE IT?
THAT'S WHY YOU'RE GETTING
BACK IN?
JASON: THINGS ARE DIFFERENT
NOW.
ROBIN'S GONE,
I GAVE UP MICHAEL.
I GOT NOTHING TO LOSE.
SONNY: YEAH, YOU DO.
AND I DO, BECAUSE IF YOU GET
HURT, THAT'S BECAUSE OF ME IS
WHAT I'M SAYING.
JASON: IT'S NOT GOING TO BE
BECAUSE OF YOU.
SONNY: WHO -- I'M THE ONE
THAT GOT YOU INTO THIS THING.
JASON: I CAN TAKE CARE
OF MYSELF.
YOU KNOW THAT.
SONNY: TOO MANY PEOPLE HAVE
BEEN HURT.
JASON: I'M GOOD AT THIS --
WHAT YOU TAUGHT ME TO DO.
I'M OUT OF CHOICES.
THERE'S NOTHING ELSE LEFT.

ARMANDO: IF YOU'RE ILL,
YOU HAVE MY COMPLETE SUPPORT.
IF NOT, I WANT TO KNOW.
JUAN, YOU'RE TAKING UP TIME
AND MEDICAL FACILITIES
FROM PEOPLE WHO NEED THEM.
THIS ISN'T A JOKE, JUAN.
TELL ME THE TRUTH.
JUAN: MY LEG'S FINE.
I FAKED THE WHOLE THING.
ARMANDO: BECAUSE YOU THOUGHT
IT WOULD KEEP YOU IN
PORT CHARLES?
I'M VERY DISAPPOINTED IN YOU,
JUAN.
I THOUGHT YOU HAD MORE CHARACTER
THAN THAT.
JUAN: PLEASE, DAD,
I DON'T WANT TO GO BACK.
ARMANDO: I TOLD YOU
YOUR STEPMOTHER SAID SHE WOULD
TRY HARDER.
YOU HAVE TO GIVE HER A CHANCE.
IT'S ONLY FAIR.
JUAN: IRMA'S ONLY PART OF IT.
I LEFT BECAUSE I DIDN'T THINK
I BELONGED ON THE ISLAND
ANYMORE.
NOW THAT I'VE BEEN AWAY
FOR A WHILE,'M SURE OF IT.
ARMANDO: PUERTO RICO IS
YOUR HOME.
YOUR ENTIRE LIFE IS THERE.
I UNDERSTAND YOUR NEED
FOR INDEPENDENCE.
IT'S PART OF GROWING UP.
EVERYONE GOES THROUGH IT.
BUT I WILL NOT LET IT DESTROY
YOUR FUTURE.
JUAN: WILL YOU AT LEAST TALK
TO MRS. SPENCER?
ARMANDO: ABOUT WHAT?
JUAN: THE YOUTH OUTREACH
PROGRAM.
REMEMBER?
I MEAN, SHE THINK'S IT'D BE
THE PERFECT THING FOR ME.
ARMANDO: NO.
I'VE MADE ARRANGEMENTS FOR US
TO LEAVE HERE TOMORROW.
ALL RIGHT, JUAN.
I'LL SPEAK WITH MRS. SPENCER.
BUT NO PROMISES.
UNDERSTAND?

LAURA: WHAT DID KATHERINE
WANT?
NIKOLAS: SHE STILL FEELS
CONNECTED TO ME.
LAURA: YOU KNOW,
SHE'S PLAYING ON YOUR
SYMPATHIES, AND THAT'S JUST
THE OLDEST TRICK IN THE BOOK.
NIKOLAS: I KNOW.
I KNOW.
IT'S LIKE EVERYTHING SHE SAYS
COULD BE A LIE.
AND ALL I WANT FROM KATHERINE
NOW IS JUST TO LEAVE ME ALONE,
STAY OUT OF MY LIFE.
LAURA: GOOD.
YOU KNOW, I HAVE A LITTLE
CONFESSION TO MAKE.
OH, THIS IS GOING TO BE REALLY
HARD.
BUT I THINK IT'S BEST TO HEAR IT
FROM ME.
NIKOLAS: WHAT IS IT?
LAURA: WELL, YOU KNOW,
THE OTHER DAY, I WAS THERE WHEN
SHE CALLED KELLY'S LOOKING
FOR YOU.
AND FELICIA TOLD HER THAT
YOU HAD PLANS WITH ELIZABETH
TO GO TO LUKE'S FOR THE CONCERT,
AND I JUST HAD THIS FEELING THAT
SHE WAS GOING TO FOLLOW YOU.
NIKOLAS: WHAT DID YOU DO?
LAURA: I STOOD OUTSIDE
AND I MADE SURE SHE DIDN'T
GET IN.
NIKOLAS: THANK YOU.
LAURA: OH, GOOD.
NIKOLAS: THANK YOU FOR TRYING
TO PROTECT ME.
BUT I DO PREFER TO HANDLE
KATHERINE ON MY OWN.
LAURA: I KNOW. I KNOW.
AND I'M SORRY.
I THINK THAT --
I THINK IT JUST FELT GOOD TO ME
TO FINALLY BE ABLE TO PROTECT
YOU A LITTLE.
NIKOLAS: IT FELT GOOD FOR ME,
TOO.
LAURA: YOU KNOW, THERE WAS
A TIME WHEN I WAS SURE THAT
I WAS A COMPLETE FAILURE
AS A MOTHER.
I LET LUCKY LIVE OUT ON HIS OWN.
I ABANDONED YOU TO STEFAN
AND HELENA.
I THOUGHT IT WAS ONLY A MATTER
OF TIME BEFORE I DID SOMETHING
HORRIBLE TO LULU, TOO.
NIKOLAS: LUCKY'S DEATH WASN'T
YOUR FAULT.
LAURA: THANK YOU FOR SAYING
THAT.
BUT A MOTHER'S HEART DOESN'T
ALWAYS LISTEN TO REASON.
A FEW WEEKS AGO,
I WAS MISSING LUCKY SO MUCH THAT
I DECIDED TO GO TO THE BOXCAR
BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT MIGHT HELP
ME TO FEEL A LITTLE BIT CLOSER
TO HIM.
NIKOLAS: HAD YOU EVER BEEN
THERE BEFORE?
LAURA: I HAD NO IDEA THAT
ELIZABETH HAD DECORATED IT
SO CLEVERLY.
BUT SOMEHOW BEING THERE MADE ME
THINK OF ALL THE EXPERIENCES
THAT LUCKY WOULD NEVER HAVE --
LIKE A WEDDING TO ELIZABETH,
LIKE HAVING HIS OWN CHILD.
AND IT WAS --
IT WAS DEVASTATING.
THE SENSE OF LOSS JUST --
NIKOLAS: WELL, I WISH YOU'D
HAVE CALLED ME.
LAURA: OH, I COULDN'T.
I COULDN'T HAVE TALKED TO ANYONE
THEN.
IT WAS SUCH A HORRIBLE DAY.
AND I'M SURE THAT IT'S PART
OF WHAT CONTRIBUTED TO ME
LANDING IN THE HOSPITAL.
BUT ANYWAY,
EVER SINCE THAT DAY,
I THINK I'VE BEGUN TO LOOK
AT THINGS A LITTLE BIT
DIFFERENTLY.
I REALIZE THAT I HAVE TWO
BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL CHILDREN
WHOSE FUTURES ARE VERY REAL.
YEAH, I KNOW LULU'S GOING TO GET
MARRIED SOMEDAY AND SO WILL YOU.
AND YOU KNOW SOMETHING?
I'M SURE YOU HAVEN'T EVEN
THOUGHT ABOUT THIS YET,
BUT I KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOING
TO BE A VERY GOOD FATHER.
OH, NOT THAT I THINK YOU SHOULD
DO IT ANYTIME SOON.
I DON'T THINK YOU'RE READY
FOR IT YET.
AND NEITHER AM I.
NIKOLAS: I AGREE.
LAURA: NIKOLAS, LISTEN,
IF YOU DON'T WANT ME TO CONFRONT
KATHERINE AGAIN, I WON'T.
BUT PROMISE ME ONE THING.
DON'T ALLOW HER TO LURE YOU BACK
INTO HER LIFE, ALL RIGHT?
ENJOY THE COOKIES.
YOU KNOW SOMETHING?
YOU HAVE AN INCREDIBLE CAPACITY
FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING.
CAN YOU JUST TRUST IN THAT?
I THINK IF YOU DO, THE PROBLEMS
THAT YOU'RE HAVING WITH
KATHERINE WILL BE OVER BEFORE
YOU KNOW IT.
HAVE A GREAT DAY, HONEY.
NIKOLAS: YOU, TOO.
BYE-BYE.
LAURA: BYE.

ARMANDO: MRS. SPENCER?
LAURA: YES?
ARMANDO: ARMANDO SANTIAGO.
I'M JUAN'S FATHER.
LAURA: NICE TO MEET YOU.
ARMANDO: SORRY FOR NOT
RETURNING YOUR CALL.
I'VE BEEN SOMEWHAT PREOCCUPIED.
LAURA: OH, DON'T WORRY
ABOUT IT.
HOW IS JUAN?
ARMANDO: MUCH BETTER.
JUAN WANTED ME TO SPEAK
TO YOU ABOUT A PROGRAM THAT
YOU RUN.
LAURA: THE YOUTH OUTREACH.
ARMANDO: DO YOU THINK THIS
PROGRAM WOULD BE GOOD FOR JUAN?
LAURA: FRANKLY, I'M NOT SURE.

SONNY: HANNAH CAME BY LAST
NIGHT.
JASON: JOHNNY SEND HER AWAY?
SONNY: I SAW HER.
I TOLD HER I --
I NEEDED SOME DISTANCE.
SHE WANTED TO HELP, YOU KNOW.
SHE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT'S
GOING ON.
I DIDN'T WANT TELL HER.
I JUST KEPT ASKING HER TO LEAVE,
AND SHE FINALLY DID, BUT I TELL
YOU WHAT -- AS SOON
AS SHE WALKED THROUGH THAT DOOR,
I WANTED HER BACK.
JASON: YOU CAN CALL HER.
SONNY: NO, NO.
IT'S TOO SOON, YOU KNOW.
LOOK AT ME.
I DON'T WANT TO LOSE
HER PERMANENTLY.
YOU DO ME A FAVOR?
GO BY KELLY'S AND ASK TAMMY
IF HANNAH'S OK?
JASON: YEAH.
SONNY: AND ALSO GO
BY THE HOSPITAL AND SEE IF JUAN
HAS EVERYTHING HE NEEDS.
JASON: SURE.
SONNY: YOUR SISTER LIKES HIM
A LOT.
JASON: I KNOW.
SONNY: NOW, I DON'T KNOW
IF YOU KNOW, BUT SHE'S THE ONE
WHO FOUND HIM, BROUGHT HIM
TO THE HOSPITAL, CALLED ME.
SHE WAS REAL BRAVE.
SHE PROBABLY SAVED HIS LIFE.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
JOHNNY: IT'S MIKE.
MIKE: HI.
HOW ARE YOU?
SONNY: HOW DO I LOOK?
MIKE: LISTEN, THE NEXT TIME
YOU DISAPPEAR, WHY DON'T
YOU LEAVE A PHONE NUMBER
OR CHECK YOUR MESSAGES.
I HAD A SURE THING AT THE TRACK
THE OTHER DAY.
IT WAS A PERFECT WAY OF GETTING
YOU INTO BETTING, BUT YOU WERE
NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.
JASON: MAYBE YOU CAN TELL ME
ABOUT IT LATER.
MIKE: SHE, JASON.
THAT WAS A SWEET LITTLE FILLY.
PLENTY OF HEART, A LITTLE SLOW
IN THE TURNS, BUT SHE --
JASON: I'LL TALK
TO YOU LATER, MIKE.
I'LL SEE YOU.
SONNY: TRYING TO GET HIM
TO THE TRACK?
MIKE: YEAH.
NO SUCH LUCK, BUT I'M NOTHING
IF NOT PERSISTENT.
SONNY: JASON HATES GAMBLING.
IT BORES HIM.
MIKE: WELL, HE HASN'T FOUND
THE RIGHT GAME YET.
LOOK, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE
HEARD, BUT THEY THINK JUAN'S
GOING TO BE OK.
SONNY: HIS FATHER'S TAKING
HIM HOME?
MIKE: YEAH.
SOON.
SONNY: WHAT DO YOU MEAN,
SOON?
SOON AS YOU DON'T KNOW OR SOON
AS IN YOU'RE NOT TELLING ME
SOMETHING?
MIKE: WELL, HE HAD SOME
TROUBLE WITH HIS LEG.
SONNY: AW, COME ON, WHAT DO
YOU MEAN, "TROUBLE"?
HE CAN'T WALK?
MIKE: NO, NO.
IT'S NOTHING SERIOUS, SONNY.
HE'S NOT PARALYZED OR ANYTHING.
IT'S JUST THAT HE TOOK A FALL
WHEN HE WAS LEAVING THE HOSPITAL
AND THEY'RE CHECKING HIM TO MAKE
SURE THAT EVERYTHING'S OK.
SONNY: OH, YOU KNOW WHAT?
SOMETHING'S NOT RIGHT HERE.
MIKE: LOOK, DON'T.
DON'T -- YOU DON'T NEED A DRINK,
MICHAEL.
YOU DON'T NEED TO DO THIS
TO YOURSELF.
SONNY: NEVER TELL ME WHAT
I NEED TO DO, MIKE!

JASON: EMILY.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
EMILY: I MISSED YOU, JASON.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
JASON: OUT OF TOWN.
ARE YOU OK?
EMILY: YEAH. I AM NOW.
A LOT'S HAPPENED.
JUAN GOT BEATEN UP.
JASON: YEAH, SONNY SAID
YOU WERE THERE WHEN IT HAPPENED?
EMILY: I FOLLOWED HIM
BECAUSE I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING
TO GET IN TROUBLE.
I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW.
I COULD HAVE GOT HURT.
JASON: WHAT WAS JUAN DOING
WORKING FOR SOREL?
EMILY: HE WANTED TO SPY
FOR SONNY, AND THEN SOREL GOT
SUSPICIOUS.
JASON: OK.
I KNOW YOU LIKE HIM,
EMILY, BUT A MOVE LIKE THAT IS
HOW PEOPLE GET KILLED.
EMILY: HE THINKS SONNY'S
HIS FATHER.
HE WANTS TO IMPRESS HIM.
JASON: SONNY IS NOT JUAN'S
FATHER.
EMILY: I KNOW THAT, BUT JUAN
DOESN'T BELIEVE IT.
JASON: WHO ARE YOU HIDING
FROM?
EMILY: WHAT MAKES YOU THINK
THAT I'M --
MOM AND DAD.
THEY DON'T WANT ME NEAR HIM.
THEY'RE ACTING LIKE HE'S
A SERIAL KILLER.
EVERYONE AT THE HOUSE HAS BEEN
HORRIBLE.
AND THEN YOU JUST DISAPPEARED.
DON'T EVER DO THAT AGAIN.
JASON: I'LL TRY NOT TO.
SONNY SAID THAT NIGHT YOU WERE
REALLY BRAVE.
EMILY: YEAH, WELL,
I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE IT.
I WAS REALLY WORRIED ABOUT JUAN.
YOU KNOW, WE REALLY LIKE EACH
OTHER.
I'VE NEVER FELT THIS WAY ABOUT
ANYBODY.
JASON: SO HOW'S HE FEELING?
EMILY: WELL, THE DOCTORS SAID
THAT HE COULD GO HOME YESTERDAY,
BUT --
JASON: BUT?
EMILY: IF I TELL YOU,
YOU PROMISE YOU WON'T SAY
ANYTHING?
JASON: I CAN'T.
SONNY ASKED ME TO CHECK ON HIM.
EMILY: OH, THAT'S OK.
I MEAN, I DON'T THINK JUAN WOULD
MIND IF SONNY KNEW.
JASON: KNEW WHAT?
EMILY: HE'S FAKING.
THE THING WITH HIS LEG,
IT'S ONLY PRETEND.
JASON: WHY?
EMILY: HE DOESN'T WANT
HIS FATHER TO TAKE HIM BACK
TO PUERTO RICO.
JASON: SONNY'S EATING
HIS HEART OUT OVER THIS KID
AND HE'S FAKING?
EMILY: NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.
JASON, IT'S JUST ABOUT HIS LEG.
EVERYTHING ELSE IS TOTALLY REAL.
HE ALMOST DIED.
HE WANTS TO STAY.
HE DOESN'T WANT TO LEAVE ME.
JASON: YOU KNOW WHAT?
SOONER OR LATER, THE DOCTORS
WILL FIGURE OUT THAT JUAN IS
LYING, OK?
AND ALAN AND MONICA ARE PROBABLY
GOING TO EVEN LIKE HIM LESS NOW.
EMILY: I DON'T THINK
THAT'S POSSIBLE.
LOOK, CAN WE GET OUT
OF THE HALL, BECAUSE IF MY MOM
CATCHES ME IN HERE, I WILL NEVER
SEE DAYLIGHT AGAIN.
HELLO.
SOMEONE CAME BY TO SEE YOU.
JASON: SONNY COULDN'T COME,
SO HE SENT ME.

JUAN: I'M SUPPOSED TO BE
HAPPY ABOUT THAT?
LAURA: VALERIE?
FOR THE PCPD.
ARMANDO: I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
JUAN TOLD ME THAT THIS PROGRAM
WAS FOR CHILDREN LIKE HIM.
LAURA: MR. SANTIAGO, THE BEST
THING YOU CAN DO FOR JUAN IS GET
HIM BACK UNDER YOUR OWN ROOF,
SPEND TIME WITH HIM,
LISTEN TO HIM, AND LOVE HIM
WITH EVERY FIBER IN YOUR BEING.
ARMANDO: MRS. SPENCER,
DO YOU HAVE ANY CHILDREN?
LAURA: YES, I DO.
ARMANDO: WHAT WOULD YOU DO
IF -- IF JUAN WAS YOUR BOY?
LAURA: YOU KNOW,
I COULD TELL YOU WHAT
I WOULD DO.
BUT I'M NOT SURE HOW THAT WILL
REALLY HELP YOU.
IT'S A VERY TOUGH DECISION
TO MAKE, MR. SANTIAGO, ONE THAT
NO PARENT SHOULD EVER HAVE
TO FACE.
BUT UNFORTUNATELY, SOMETIMES
WE DO.
ARMANDO: THANK YOU VERY MUCH
FOR YOUR TIME, MRS. SPENCER.
LAURA: YOU'RE WELCOME.

SONNY: DOES HE NEED
A SPECIALIST?
DO WE NEED TFLY SOMEBODY IN?
MIKE: I DON'T KNOW.
SONNY: WHAT DO YOU MEAN,
YOU DON'T KNOW?
YOU SHOW UP HERE, YOU TELL ME
LILY'S SON HAS SOMETHING WRONG
WITH HIS LEG BECAUSE
OF A BEATING HE TOOK
BECAUSE OF ME.
MIKE: NO, IT'S NOT
BECAUSE OF YOU.
LOOK, JUAN MADE A MISTAKE,
AND THAT'S WHAT KIDS DO.
AND SOMETIMES THERE ARE TRAGIC
CONSEQUENCES AND YOU FEEL BAD
AND YOU TRY TO MAKE THINGS
BETTER, BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN
IT'S YOUR FAULT.
SONNY: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
HOW MANY TIMES YOUE SAID THAT
TO ME?
AND ALL IT PROVES IS HOW LITTLE
YOU KNOW ABOUT THE THINGS THAT
I'VE DONE.
MIKE: WHAT YOU THINK YOU'VE
DONE.
SONNY: "THINK THAT --"
MIKE: WHAT YOU THINK --
LISTEN --
SONNY, YOU LOOK AT THE WORLD
LIKE A CHILD SOMETIMES.
YOU BLAME YOURSELF FOR THINGS
THAT YOU COULDN'T POSSIBLY BE
RESPONSIBLE FOR OR HAVE CONTROL
OVER.
I MEAN, "IT'S MY FAULT DADDY
LEFT.
IT'S MY FAULT THAT MAMA GOT
HIT."
SONNY: I DON'T WANT
TO HEAR IT, MIKE --
MIKE: NO, NO, NO,
NO, LISTEN -- I KNOW THAT I'M
NOT SUPPOSED TO TALK ABOUT THESE
THINGS AND THOSE TIMES,
MICHAEL, BUT HOW ELSE CAN I MAKE
YOU UNDERSTAND?
WHAT HAPPENED BACK THEN WAS
NO MORE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY THAN
WHAT IS HAPPENING TO JUAN RIGHT
NOW.
LOOK, IF YOU WANT TO HELP
THE BOY, FINE, HELP HIM.
CALL A SPECIALIST, VISIT HIM
AT THE HOSPITAL, DO WHATEVER
YOU THINK IS NECESSARY,
BUT DON'T PUNISH YOURSELF.
IT'S A WASTE AND IT'S WRONG.
YOU AREN'T GUILTY FOR ANYTHING.
SONNY: WELL, THAT'S THE WAY
YOU WANT IT TO BE BECAUSE
YOU WANT TO MAKE EVERYTHING OK
AND BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT
FATHERS DO.
JUAN THINKS I'M HIS FATHER.
HE CALLED --
HE CALLED ME "DAD."
HE --
HE THINKS I ABANDONED HIM,
SO THAT'S WHY HE CAME OUT HERE,
AND I SAID THE WRONG THING
AT THE WRONG TIME.
THAT HAPPENS A LOT, DOESN'T IT?

LAURA: OH --
TONY: YOU MADE THE DECISION.
IT WAS THE ONLY CHOICE YOU COULD
MAKE.
LAURA: I COULD HAVE PUT UP
MORE RESISTANCE.
I COULD HAVE.
TONY: YOU COULD REWRITE
HISTORY ALSO, BUT YOU'RE STILL
GOING TO BE JUST STUCK
IN THE PAST.
LAURA: YOU'RE RIGHT.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
THANKS.
YEAH, SOMETIMES
STAYING HOME ISN'T THE ONLY
SOLUTION.
RIGHT?
I MEAN, SOMETIMES LEAVING IS
WHAT'S BEST.
TONY: AND YOU THINK THAT'S
THE BEST WAY FOR JUAN?
LAURA: JUAN IS VERY SMART.
HE'S VERY CONFIDENT.
I THINK HE PROBABLY IS CAPABLE
OF TAKING CARE OF HIMSELF.
WITH A LITTLE BIT OF DISCIPLINE
AND A LITTLE BIT OF GUIDANCE --
I'VE GOT TO STOP LETTING WHAT
HAPPENED WITH LUCKY COLOR EVERY
DECISION I MAKE.

MIKE: WHY WOULD JUAN THINK
THAT YOU'RE HIS FATHER?
SONNY: I DON'T KNOW.
WHEN LILY DIED, I FLEW
TO PUERTO RICO.
AND I GAVE HER CROSS TO JUAN
AND PROMISED TO BE HIS FRIEND.
MAYBE, YOU KNOW, HE WAS YOUNG,
HE PROBABLY MISUNDERSTOOD,
OR MAYBE IT WAS ME,
YOU KNOW, LOOKING AT HIM LIKE --
AND SEEING MY OWN CHILD THAT WAS
NEVER BORN.
ANYWAY, IT DOESN'T MATTER.
JUAN SHOWED UP, AND
I TOLD HIM I DIDN'T WANT HIM
AROUND.
SO HE THOUGHT HIS OWN FATHER WAS
REJECTING HIM.
SO TO PROVE HIMSELF,
HE SPIED ON MORENO FOR ME.
MIKE: BUT HOW DOES THAT MAKE
YOU RESPONSIBLE?
I MEAN, YOU --
YOU WANTED JUAN TO LEAVE
AND YOU DID EVERYTHING YOU COULD
TO TRY TO HELP HIM.
SONNY: SURE, I DID.
SO DID YOU.
YOU DID EVERYTHING YOU COULD TO,
YOU KNOW -- THAT NIGHT YOU HAD
TO TELL ME SOMETHING --
THAT I WAS A GOOD FATHER,
THAT YOU WERE PROUD OF ME,
I THINK.
YOU JUST HAD TO SAY IT RIGHT
THEN AND THERE, SO --
LILY WALKED TO THE CAR ALONE
WHEN WE SHOULD HAVE GONE
TOGETHER, AND I WAS STANDING
THERE LISTENING TO YOU,
LISTENING TO MY FATHER
WHEN MY LIFE SHOULD HAVE ENDED.
SONNY: I WASN'T SUPPOSED
TO WATCH THEM DIE.
I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE WITH THEM.
WHY'D YOU HAVE TO STOP ME?
WHY'D YOU HAVE TO SAY ANYTHING?
MIKE: MICHAEL, I'M --
I'M NOT SORRY THAT YOU'RE ALIVE.
SONNY: I'M GLAD SOMEBODY'S
HAPPY.

NIKOLAS: WHAT ARE YOU DOING
HERE?
ELIZABETH: WAITING FOR YOU.
IS EVERYTHING OK?
NIKOLAS: FINE. WHY?
ELIZABETH: WELL, LAST NIGHT
YOU SEEMED KIND OF UPSET.
AND THEN THIS MORNING,
KATHERINE WALKED INTO KELLY'S
ACTING EVEN MORE SMUG THAN
USUAL.
NIKOLAS: HOW'D THAT WORK?
ELIZABETH: SHE GAVE ME THIS
TOTALLY WEIRD ADVICE ABOUT
APPRECIATING LIFE AND THEN MADE
A BIG DEAL ABOUT ORDERING
HERBAL TEA, LIKE I CARE WHAT
SHE DRINKS.
I DON'T KNOW, IT'S PROBABLY
NOTHING.
I JUST GOT THE FEELING SHE WAS
PROVOKING ME.
NIKOLAS: SHE WAS.
ELIZABETH: WHY, NIKOLAS?
WHAT'S GOING ON BETWEEN THE TWO
OF YOU?

NIKOLAS: KATHERINE'S HAVING
A HARD TIME ACCEPTING THE FACT
THAT WE'VE BROKEN UP.
AND SHE PROBABLY THINKS THAT
BOTHERING YOU IS A WAY TO GET
MY ATTENTION.
ELIZABETH: THAT WOMAN IS
THE BIGGEST --
NIKOLAS: I CAN HANDLE HER.
BESIDES, I LEARNED WITH SARAH
THAT BREAKING UP DOESN'T
NECESSARILY HAPPEN WHEN YOU SAY
THE WORDS.
ELIZABETH: DOES SHE REALLY
THINK THAT SHE STILL HAS
A CHANCE?
NIKOLAS: IT LOOKS THAT WAY.
SHE'S USING EVERYTHING SHE CAN
TO HOLD ON TO ME.
ELIZABETH: WELL, BUT LIKE
WHAT?
YOU'VE ALREADY QUIT YOUR JOB.
WHAT ELSE IS THERE?
NIKOLAS: CAN WE NOT DISCUSS
THIS?
I MEAN, KATHERINE'S OBVIOUSLY
NOT MY FAVORITE SUBJECT RIGHT
NOW.
ELIZABETH: SURE.
PICK A TOPIC.
NIKOLAS: WHAT ABOUT --
WHERE WE'RE GOING TO GO
FOR ICE CREAM?
ELIZABETH: HAVE YOU HAD THAT
VANILLA ROYAL SWIRL AT THAT
PLACE DOWN NEAR THE DOCKS?
OH, IT IS NOT TO BE BELIEVED.
NIKOLAS: YOU WANT TO DRIVE
THE JAG?
ELIZETH: YOU'RE KIDDING,
RIGHT?
NIKOLAS: THE KEYS ARE
ON THE TABLE.
ELIZABETH ARE YOU -- OH,
DON'T MOVE.
JUST -- DON'T LEAVE.
JUST DON'T CHANGE YOUR MIND, OK?
NIKOLAS: OK.
KATHERINE: SURPRISED
TO SEE ME?
KATHERINE: LAURA MAY HAVE
THROWN ME OUT OF HERE ONCE,
BUT THERE IS SOME STAFF THAT'S
STILL LOYAL TO ME.
SHE KEPT ME OUT OF LUKE'S LAST
NIGHT, TOO, AS IF SHE THINKS
SHE CAN DECIDE WHERE I CAN GO.
BUT THAT'S OK BECAUSE SHE'S
ABOUT TO GET PAID BACK.
I'M HAVING NIKOLAS' BABY.
I'M MAKING LAURA A GRANDMOTHER.

JUAN: MY DAD CALLED ME
ON FAKING MY LEG INJURY.
I COULDN'T LIE TO HIM, EMILY.
I HAD TO TELL HIM THE TRUTH.
EMILY: HOW DID HE TAKE IT?
JUAN: HE WANTS TO TAKE ME
HOME AS SOON AS I CAN GO.
EMILY: NO.
HE CAN'T.
JUAN: I GAVE MYSELF ONE MORE
CHANCE.
I TOLD HIM THAT I WANTED TO JOIN
THE YOUTH OUTREACH PROGRAM,
AND HE SAID HE'D DISCUSS IT
WITH MRS. SPENCER.
EMILY: LAURA'S REAL STRICT
ABOUT WHO SHE LETS IN
THE PROGRAM.
SHE WON'T LET YOU IN IF YOU'RE
NOT POSITIVE THAT YOU WANT TO BE
THERE.
JUAN: IF I HAVE TO LEAVE,
I PROMISE I'LL COME BACK AS SOON
AS I CAN, EMILY.
AND WHATEVER IT TAKES, I'LL --
ARMANDO: EMILY.
EMILY: HI.
ARMANDO: I HAVE SOME NEWS
ABOUT YOU STAYING IN
PORT CHARLES.
DO YOU MIND IF WE --
JUAN: WELL, SHE'S GOING
TO FIND OUT SOONER OR LATER.
MIGHT AS WELL GET DOWN TO IT.

ARMANDO: AS YOU REQUESTED,
I SPOKE WITH MRS. SPENCER.
UNFORTUNATELY, SHE --
LAURA: HI, JUAN.
HOW'S THAT LEG?
SORRY.
I COULDN'T RESIST.
DR. JONES TOLD ME.
ARMANDO: I THOUGHT
HE DESERVED TO KNOW THE TRUTH
BEFORE HE DID ANY MORE WORK.
JUAN: OK, SO I LIED.
BUT IT WAS ONLY BECAUSE,
YOU KNOW, I JUST WANTED A CHANCE
TO STAY AND BE IN YOUR PROGRAM.
LAURA: WELL, IF THAT'S TRUE,
I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU SOME
QUESTIONS HERE IN FRONT
OF YOUR FATHER.
JUAN: OK.
LAURA: FIRST OF ALL,
ARE YOU USING THE OUTREACH
PROGRAM STRICTLY AS A WAY
OF STAYING HERE WITH EMILY?
JUAN: NO.
LAURA: THEN YOU HAVE
A GENUINE INTEREST IN WHAT
THE PROGRAM HAS TO TEACH?
JUAN: YEAH.
LAURA: WOULD YOU SHOW UP
WHERE YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO,
ON TIME, WITH A GOOD ATTITUDE?
JUAN: I'LL DO WHATEVER'S
ASKED OF ME.
I JUST WANT A CHANCE.
LAURA: I STILL HAVE SOME
RESERVATIONS, BUT IF YOU ARE
WILLING TO TRY, SO AM I.
JUAN: YOU MEAN IT?
LAURA: YES, I DO.
THE REST IS UP TO YOUR FATHER.
IF YOU'RE WILLING TO LET HIM
STAY, I AM WILLING TO LET HIM
IN THE PROGRAM.
JUAN: DID YOU HEAR THAT?
MRS. SPENCER SAID THAT --
ARMANDO: QUIET, JUAN, PLEASE.
ALL RIGHT, YOU CAN STAY
FOR THE REST OF THE SUMMER.
BUT THEN YOU HAVE TO RETURN
HOME.
NO ARGUMENTS.
JUAN: CAN WE MAKE IT,
YOU KNOW, UNTIL CHRISTMAS?
THE SUMMER'S FINE.
THANK YOU, DAD.
AND, YOU, TOO, MRS. SPENCER.
EMILY: YES, THANK YOU,
BOTH OF YOU.
ARMANDO: ALL I ASK IS THAT
YOU BEHAVE YOURSELF.
JUAN: I WILL.
EMILY: HE WILL.
LAURA: I'LL BE IN TOMORROW
MORNING TO GO OVER SOME
OF THE DETAILS WITH YOU.
JUAN: I WON'T LET YOU DOWN,
MRS. SPENCER.
YOU HAVE MY WORD.
LAURA: OK.
ARMANDW:$ WELL, I'LL SPEAK
TO ADMINISTRATION ABOUT
YOUR RELEASE.
YOU THINK YOU TWO WILL BE ALL
RIGHT WITHOUT ME?
EMILY: YEAH, WE'LL BE FINE,
MR. SANTIAGO.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
ARMANDO: ALL RIGHT.
EMILY: CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?
YOU GET TO STAY.
AREN'T YOU HAPPY?
JUAN: IT'S ONLY ONE MONTH,
EMILY.
AND IT'S GOING TO BE GONE BEFORE
WE KNOW IT.
EMILY: YEAH, BUT IT'S ONE
MORE MONTH THAN WE WERE
EXPECTING.
DOESN'T THAT MAKE YOU SO HAPPY?
JUAN: I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER
BEEN HAPPIER.

JASON: JOHNNY SAID MIKE LEFT?
SONNY: HOW'S JUAN?
JASON: HE'S GOOD.
SONNY: MIKE SAID THERE'S
SOMETHING WRONG WITH HIS LEG?
JASON: HE WAS FAKING.
SONNY: ARE YOU SURE?
JASON: EMILY TOLD ME.
JUAN'S FATHER WANTS TO TAKE HIM
HOME TO PUERTO RICO.
JUAN DOESN'T WANT TO GO, SO HE'S
BEEN FAKING THIS PROBLEM
WITH HIS LEG.
SONNY: I THOUGHT HE WAS
PARALYZED.
JASON: SONNY, JUAN IS GOING
TO BE FINE.
YOU CAN SEE THAT HE WAS HURT
BAD, BUT HE'S NOT IN ANY REAL
PAIN RIGHT NOW.
ALL HE CARES ABOUT IS STAYING
IN TOWN AND SEEING MY SISTER.
SONNY: YOU TELL THE DOCTORS
THAT HE WAS FAKING?
JASON: NO.
EMILY TRUSTED ME.
I COULDN'T GO BEHIND HER BACK.
THE DOCTORS WILL PROBABLY FIGURE
IT OUT FOR THEMSELVES SOON
ENOUGH.
SONNY: SO THAT MEANS
HIS FATHER'S TAKING HIM HOME?
JASON: I GUESS.
SONNY: DID JUAN SAY ANYTHING
ABOUT ME?
JASON: EMILY SAYS THAT
HE WANTS TO SEE YOU.
SONNY: NO, NO, IT'S TOO SOON.
I'M NOT READY.
YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?
I SAID SOMETHING TO MIKE
I PROBABLY SHOULDN'T HAVE.
ANYWAY,
HOW'S HANNAH?
JASON: I DIDN'T SEE HER.
TAMMY SAYS SHE'S OK.
SHE'S JUST ANGRY.
SONNY: ANGRY'S GOOD.
I MEAN, YOU KNOW.
IT'S BETTER THAN WRECKED,
SCARED, RUNNING OUT OF HERE,
NEVER COMING BACK.
I THINK ANGRY I CAN --
I CAN MAKE UP FOR.
I'M TIRED OF THOSE PEOPLE,
JASON.
HANNAH I'D LIKE TO KEEP.
>> STAY TUNED FOR SCENES FROM
THE NEXT "GENERAL HOSPITAL."
CHLOE: I NEVER KNEW ROME
COULD BE SO MUCH FUN.
JAX: YOU AIN'T SEEN NOTHING
YET.
TAGGERT: WHAT DO YOU WANT?
FAISON: JUST A SIMPLE
REQUEST.
MAC: FELICIA, HOW COULD EVERY
PIECE OF EVIDENCE JUST
DISAPPEAR?
EMILY: I CAN'T BE AT THAT
HOUSE RIGHT NOW.
A.J.: I'D LIKE TO INTRODUCE
TO YOU MICHAEL ALAN
QUARTERMAINE.
