NED: THERE WE GO.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
JAX: MUSIC IS MUSIC.
HOW CAN VERDI BE ANY BETTER
IN ITALY THAN ANYWHERE ELSE?
CHLOE: I DON'T KNOW.
I ONLY KNOW IT'S TRUE.
MY MOTHER SAID SO, AND
SHE WOULDN'T LIE TO ME.
NED: DO WE EVEN KNOW FOR SURE
THAT IT WAS VERDI?
ALEXIS: LOOK, THIS IS ALL
MY FAULT.
WE WOULDN'T BE LATE AT ALL
IF I HADN'T TAKEN SO LONG.
I'M SORRY.
NED: NO, IT'S THE
RESTAURANT'S FAULT.
HOW WERE YOU SUPPOSED TO KNOW
THAT THEY WERE GOING TO MAKE
YOUR DESSERT FROM SCRATCH?
JAX: EXCUSE ME.
ARE YOU ACTUALLY COMPLAINING
ABOUT THE DINNER?
NED: I'LL ADMIT IT WAS
EXCELLENT.
MAYBE YOU DO KNOW ROME A LITTLE
BETTER THAN I THOUGHT YOU DID
INITIALLY.
JAX: AHA.
ALEXIS: SEE, DIDN'T I TELL
YOU MY HUSBAND COMES IN HANDY
SOMETIMES?
NED: THAT'S WHAT DESDEMONA
SAID ABOUT OTHELLO.
CHLOE: HALF A CONCERT
BY A WHOLE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
UNDER THE STARS IN ROME IS WORTH
SIX CONCERTS INDOORS,
PROGRAMS OR NO.
THANK YOU FOR GETTING
THE TICKETS.
NED: YOU'RE WELCOME.
IT WAS PRETTY GREAT, WASN'T IT?
YOU KNOW, HOLDING YOU LIKE THIS
REMINDS ME OF SOMETHING I'VE
BEEN WANTING TO DO ALL NIGHT
LONG.
CHLOE: TIRED?
JAX: NO, AFTER THAT ESPRESSO,
I COULD RIDE A STATIONARY BIKE
ACROSS THE ALPS.
CHLOE: I KNOW WHERE WE COULD
HEAR THE OTHER HALF
OF A CONCERT.
GIVE THESE TWO SOME -- HOW DO
YOU SAY "QUALITY TIME"
IN GERMAN?
JAX: WELL, IN GERMAN,
ALL TIME IS OF THE HIGHEST
QUALITY, MADE TO THE MOST
EXACTING STANDARDS.
CHLOE: WELL, ON CERTAIN
NIGHTS ON THE SPANISH STEPS,
YOUNG MUSICIANS GATHER
AS IF SUMMONED BY SOME SOUND
THAT ONLY THEY CAN HEAR.
AND THEY PLAY UNTIL THEY GET
TIRED OF PLAYING -- OR PEOPLE
THROW THINGS OUT OF THIRD-STORY
WINDOWS AT THEM.
JAX: WELL, I'M SOLD.
HEY, YOU TWO, WE'RE GOING
TO HEAD BACK OUT.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO COME?
LOOKS LIKE IT'S JUST YOU AND ME.

EMILY: HEY.
ELIZABETH: HEY.
EMILY: DO YOU NOT WORK
IN HERE ANYMORE?
YOU LOOK LIKE YOU'VE BEEN FIRED,
OR YOU'RE JUST NOT WORKING.
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW WHAT
I WISH?
YEAH, I GUESS YOU DO.
BUT I STILL WISH IT.
IF LUCKY WERE HERE, HE'D KNOW
WHAT TO DO.
EMILY: I'M HERE.
MAYBE I COULD TRY TO HELP.
I KNOW IT WOULDN'T DO A LOT.
ELIZABETH: IF SOMEBODY HAS
A PROBLEM, A FRIEND -- SAY,
A REALLY GOOD FRIEND --
AND YOU KNOW ALL ABOUT THAT
PROBLEM BUT THEY DON'T KNOW THAT
YOU KNOW AND IT'S REALLY
PERSONAL, SOMETHING THEY HAVEN'T
EVEN BROUGHT UP TO YOU,
THEIR REALLY GOOD FRIEND,
WHAT DO YOU DO?

KATHERINE: EXCUSE ME.
I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT
WITH DR. MEADOWS.
I KNOW THIS IS THE OB/GYN FLOOR,
BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE IT IS.
NURSE: DOWN THE HALL
ON THE RIGHT.
KATHERINE: AH.
THANK YOU.

LAURA: NIKOLAS.
HI.
NIKOLAS: HOW ARE YOU?
LAURA: GOOD.
I GOT YOUR MESSAGE.
YOU HAD ME A LITTLE BIT WORRIED.
WHAT'S SO IMPORTANT THAT
YOU NEED TO SEE ME RIGHT AWAY?

SONNY: JASON.
JASON: WHAT MAKES PEOPLE WANT
TO DRAW STUFF?
THESE CAVES ARE THOUSANDS
OF YEARS OLD, AND PEOPLE MADE
DRAWINGS OF THEM -- BUFFALO,
WOLVES, HORSES.
I NOTICED THAT WITH
MICHAEL, TOO.
HE JUST WANTED TO DRAW STUFF.
WHAT?
SONNY: I NEED YOU TO DO
SOMETHING FOR ME.
CALL HANNAH, LET HER KNOW
IT'S NOT --
LET HER KNOW NOT TO COME OVER.
IT'S NOT A GOOD IDEA.

FELICIA: EVERYTHING OK?
MAC: COME ON IN.
CLOSE THE DOOR.
FELICIA: NO, IT ISN'T.
I COULD TELL BY THE WAY
YOU SOUNDED ON THE PHONE.
MAC: I'VE BEEN RACKING
MY BRAIN SINCE I CALLED
YOU TO THINK OF A WAY THAT
I COULD SUGARCOAT THIS OR MAKE
IT SEEM LIKE IT HAD A SILVER
LINING.
BUT IT DOESN'T.
FELICIA, YOU KNOW HOW I'VE
TRIED -- HOW I'VE TRIED,
BUT THERE IS NOTHING -- NOTHING
I CAN CHARGE FAISON WITH.
WE'RE RELEASING HIM TODAY.

FELICIA: IT'S NOT POSSIBLE,
MAC.
YOU CAN'T -- A PERSON CAN'T
COVER EVERYTHING.
THERE HAS TO BE SOME LOOSE END
SOMEWHERE.
WHAT ABOUT THAT CARTEL BUSINESS
THAT HE WAS INVOLVED IN?
I MEAN, THERE S TO BE
WITNESSES THERE.
RIGHT?
MAC: YEAH, FUNNY THING ABOUT
THE CARTEL BUSINESS --
HOW THE FEDERAL CHARGES AGAINST
FAISON WERE JUST MYSTERIOUSLY
DROPPED.
FELICIA: SO HE PAID
SOMEONE OFF?
OR, NO, MAYBE HE HAD A PARTNER
IN HIGH PLACES.
MAC: YEAH, WELL, ALL I KNOW
IS THAT EVERY ASSUMPTION I EVER
MADE ABOUT WHAT HE COULD
OR COULD NOT GET AWAY WITH WAS
COMPLETELY WRONG.
FELICIA: WHO IN THE
GOVERNMENT --
I MEAN, WHO --
WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND
WOULD PROTECT THAT --
MONSTER?
WELL, YOU KNOW, THIS ISN'T
THE ENDING THAT WE WANTED,
BUT AT LEAST IT'S AN END.
MAC: HOW DO YOU FIGURE?
FELICIA: HE USED YOU TO HELP
CLEAR HIS NAME, AND NOW HE'S
GOING TO GO TO ANOTHER CITY
AND MOVE ON.
HE'S GOING TO CONTINUE FENCING
JEWELS.
HE'S GOING TO CONTINUE GROWING
THOSE ORCHIDS.
MAC: AND WHAT'S --
FELICIA: AND HE'LL PROBABLY
TERRORIZE SOMEBODY ELSE.
MAC: WHAT'S TO STOP HIM
FROM MAKING A FRESH START RIGHT
HERE IN PORT CHARLES?
FELICIA: HE WOULDN'T.

EMILY: THANKS.
ELIZABETH: I FOUND OUT WHAT
I FOUND OUT BY ACCIDENT.
IF THIS PERSON WANTED ME
TO KNOW, HE -- OR SHE -- WOULD
HAVE TOLD ME.
I JUST DON'T WANT TO RISK
OUR FRIENDSHIP OR BUTT
INTO SOMETHING THAT'S NONE
OF MY BUSINESS.
EMILY: NOW, HOLD ON A MINUTE.
I MEAN, SOMETHING THAT SOMEONE
FINDS REALLY HARD TO TELL
YOU MAY NOT NECESSARILY BE
SOMETHING THEY DON'T WANT
YOU TO KNOW.
NOW, THIS PERSON MAY BE
EMBARRASSED.
THEY MAY NOT WANT TO RISK
YOUR FRIENDSHIP.
ELIZABETH: OH, THEY KNOW
BETTER.
EMILY: MAYBE NOT.
ELIZABETH: IT'S JUST THAT
THIS PROBLEM -- I'M AFRAID
MY FRIEND'S GOING TO DO
SOMETHING REALLY CRAZY
AND BASICALLY THROW THEIR LIFE
AWAY.
EMILY: WELL, THEN HOW CAN
YOU NOT SAY SOMETHING?
LOOK, I KNOW THIS IS A REALLY
BAD EXAMPLE, BUT BACK WHEN I WAS
DRINKING AND I WAS DOING DRUGS,
I KNEW I WASN'T PULLING IT OFF.
MY PARENTS, EVERYBODY AROUND ME
KNEW THAT SOMETHING WAS WRONG.
AND I KEPT DENYING IT, BUT THERE
WAS NOTHING THAT I COULD DO.
AND SOMEHOW, YOU KNOW, I WANTED
THEM TO KNOW.
I WANTED THEM TO NOT LET ME GET
EVEN MORE OUT OF CONTROL,
BUT I COULDN'T SAY IT.
A LOT OF TIMES SOMEONE CAN'T ASK
FOR HELP WHEN THEY NEED IT
THE MOST.
ELIZABETH: THAT'S A LOT
OF GOOD ADVICE.
I THINK I MIGHT EVEN TAKE IT.
OH, AND BY THE WAY, JUAN LEFT
ABOUT 15 MINUTES AGO.
EMILY: AND YOU DIDN'T
TELL ME?
ELIZABETH: WELL, HE SAID
IF ANYBODY ASKED, HE'D BE DOWN
NEAR THE PIER.
GO.
IT'S OK.
I KNOW YOU CAME BY TO SEE ME
AND NOT HIM.
EMILY: SEE YOU.

NIKOLAS: I NEEDED TO TELL
YOU, AND --
THIS ISN'T EASY.
LAURA: IS THIS ABOUT
KATHERINE, BY ANY CHANCE?
NIKOLAS: YES.
LAURA: I KNEW IT.
THAT SMUG SMILE SHE JUST
GAVE ME.
NIKOLAS: WHEN DID SHE DO $L
THAT?
LAURA: JUST NOW.
RIGHT HERE.
A FEW MINUTES AGO.
TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED.
SHE'S NOT LETTING GO, IS SHE?
NIKOLAS: NO.
SHE'S NOT.
LAURA: OH.
I CAN JUST IMAGINE -- MISTY EYES
AND THE TREMBLING LOWER LIP.
NIKOLAS: YEAH.
LAURA: SHE'S SO
SELF-CENTERED.
EVERYTHING'S ABOUT HER NEEDS,
ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE.
I'M SO GLAD YOU FINALLY SAW
THROUGH HER AND SHOWED
HER THE DOOR.
BUT LISTEN -- I WOULD NOT BE
SURPRISED TO FIND OUT THAT SHE'D
DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING RIGHT NOW
TO HOLD ON TO YOU.
SO YOU PREPARE YOURSELF FOR SOME
EMOTIONAL BLACKMAIL.
DON'T GIVE IN TO IT.
NIKOLAS: THAT'S EASIER SAID
THAN DONE.
LAURA: OH, SHE'S
SO MANIPULATIVE.
OH, SOMEBODY NEEDS TO PUT
HER IN HER PLACE.
NIKOLAS: LAURA, DON'T.
SAYING ANYTHING TO HER --
IT'S ONLY GOING TO MAKE IT
WORSE.
LAURA: I KNOW.
I WON'T.
I PROMISE.
BUT -- I JUST WISH THERE WAS
SOMETHING I COULD DO TO HELP
YOU, THAT'S ALL.
NIKOLAS: I WISH I'D LISTENED
TO YOU AND MY FATHER AND NEVER
GOTTEN INVOLVED WITH HER,
BUT -- BUT I DID, AND,
OBVIOUSLY, IT'S MY TIME TO LIVE
UP TO THE CONSEQUENCES.
LAURA: LOOK, IF SHE CONTINUES
TO THROW HERSELF AT YOU,
HER HURT FEELINGS ARE
HER PROBLEM.
NIKOLAS: I UNDERSTAND THAT.
I -- I GUESS I JUST WANTED
TO HEAR SOME THINGS SAID OUT
LOUD, THAT'S ALL.
THANK YOU.
LAURA: I'M SORRY.
I'M HERE TO HELP YOU.

SONNY: WHAT, ARE YOU MIKE ALL
OF A SUDDEN?
TAKING IT UPON YOURSELF TO MAKE
ME A BETTER PERSON?
JASON: I DON'T WANT TO MAKE
YOU ANYTHING.
SONNY: THEN DO WHAT I ASK.
JUST MAKE THE CALL.
YOU WANT ME TO DIAL FOR YOU?
JASON: NO, NO, SONNY,
THERE'S NOT MUCH I WOULDN'T DO
FOR YOU.
THERE'S NOT MUCH I HAVEN'T DONE
FOR YOU, INCLUDING BEING
YOUR MESSENGER WITH
YOUR GIRLFRIEND.
I DID IT FOR YOU WITH BRENDA
WHEN SHE WAS AT THE CHURCH
WAITING IN HER WEDDING GOWN.
SONNY: THAT SITUATION WAS
NOTHING LIKE THAT.
JASON: LISTEN, IT DOESN'T
MATTER.
I'M NOT GOING TO HURT SOMEBODY
WHO LOVES YOU LIKE THAT AGAIN --
NOT AS A FAVOR, NOT AS AN ORDER.
I'LL DO ANYTHING FOR
YOU BUT THAT.
SONNY: LOOK AT ME.
JASON: I AM.
SONNY: HOW MUCH FUSE DO
YOU THINK I GOT LEFT?
WHEN IT'S GONE, DO YOU THINK
SHE'S STILL GOING TO BE SOMEBODY
WHO LOVES ME?
JASON: THEN WHY ASK
HER TO COME HERE IN THE FIRST
PLACE?
SONNY: I SHOULDN'T HAVE,
BUT, YOU KNOW, I'M A LITTLE,
YOU KNOW, MESSED UP RIGHT NOW.
AND SEEING THE WAY IT WENT DOWN
WITH YOU AND CARLY GOT
TO ME, OK?
IT GOT ME THINKING I DON'T WANT
IT TO END THAT WAY OR ANY WAY,
SO I CALLED.
IT WAS A MISTAKE.
SO NOW I'M GOING TO DO
SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING THAT'S
GOING TO BLOW THIS THING
SKY-HIGH, AND SHE'S GOING
TO HEAD FOR THE HILLS, AND IT'S
NOT GOING TO BE GOOD FOR EITHER
OF US, ANYWAY.
SO I'M NOT ASKING YOU
TO EXPLAIN ANYTHING.
JUST TELL HER THAT, YOU KNOW,
SOMETHING CAME UP, THAT I'LL
CALL HER.
SHE'D RATHER HEAR IT
FROM YOU THAN FROM JOHNNY.
SHE SEES YOU AS A FRIEND.
PLEASE.
JOHNNY: MISS SCOTT'S HERE.
SONNY: SEND HER IN.

HANNAH: JASON, I DIDN'T KNOW
YOU'D BE HERE.
IS THIS A BAD TIME?
SONNY: UH, JASON, HE WAS JUST
LEAVING.
JASON: YEAH, GOOD TO SEE YOU.
HANNAH: SAME HERE.
SONNY: YOU LOOK GREAT.
HANNAH: IT'S NOT LIKE IT'S
BEEN YEARS.
SONNY: CAN I GET
YOU SOMETHING TO DRINK?
HANNAH: NO, THANKS.
SONNY: I KNOW IT'S EARLY,
BUT MAYBE YOU WANT TO EAT
SOMETHING?
HANNAH: I LIVE OVER
A RESTAURANT.
I DIDN'T COME HERE TO EAT,
SONNY.
SONNY: I KNOW.
HANNAH: THEN STOP TREATING ME
LIKE COMPANY.
SONNY: WELL, I'M JUST
TREATING YOU THE WAY I THINK
YOU SHOULD BE TREATED.
I MEAN, THE LAST FEW DAYS,
I MEAN, EVEN MORE THAN A FEW
DAYS, IT'S BEEN HARD ON YOU.
I KNOW THAT.
HANNAH: THEY HAVEN'T BEEN
MUCH FUN FOR YOU, EITHER.
THAT MUCH I DO KNOW.
AND TO BE HONEST WITH YOU,
I THINK A LOT OF THIS WAS REALLY
NEEDLESS.
I COULD HAVE DONE YOU MORE GOOD
RIGHT HERE WITH YOU,
INSTEAD OF ACROSS TOWN WAITING
AND SITTING BY THE PHONE WHILE
YOU WERE SITTING HERE --
SONNY: WAIT, WAIT,
WAIT, WAIT A MINUTE.
MAYBE THIS WASN'T A GOOD IDEA.
MAYBE YOU SHOULD JUST GO, OK?
HANNAH: FORGET WHAT I JUST
SAID.
THERE'S NOTHING MORE POINTLESS
THAN SAYING TO SOMEONE STANDING
RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU,
"WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?"
I DIDN'T COME HERE TO HOUND YOU.
I'M JUST HERE TO BE HERE.
OK?
SONNY: OK.

ELIZABETH: HERE.
MAN: THANK YOU.
ELIZABETH: YOU'RE WELCOME.
SO, IS THIS A SOCIAL CALL,
OR ARE YOU ACTUALLY GOING
TO ORDER SOMETHING?
NIKOLAS: I GUESS I'D PROBABLY
BETTER, HUH?
HEY --
ELIZABETH: WHAT ARE
YOU TRYING TO DO, INSULT ME?
TRUE, THESE OUTSIDE TABLES ARE
FOR CUSTOMERS ONLY, BUT YOU'RE
AN EXCEPTION TO EVERY RULE
AROUND HERE.
DON'T YOU KNOW THAT?
NIKOLAS: AND WHAT ARE
YOU TRYING TO DO, RAISE
MY SELF-ESTEEM?
ELIZABETH: OH, IF LUCKY COULD
HEAR YOU SAY THAT.
YOU KNOW WHAT HE THOUGHT ABOUT
YOUR SELF-ESTEEM LEVEL.
NIKOLAS: YEAH, WELL,
IT'S BEEN DROPPING FAST.
ELIZABETH: WHY'S THAT?
NIKOLAS: JOB HUNTING DOES
THAT TO YOU.
YOU KNOW?
DID YOU FIND ME ANYTHING YET?
ELIZABETH: NO.
BUT I DID SEE YOUR OLD BOSS
YESTERDAY.
NIKOLAS: KATHERINE?
DO ME A FAVOR, ALL RIGHT?
LET TAMMY OR ONE OF THE OTHER
WAITRESSES TAKE ANY TABLE SHE'S
AT FROM NOW ON.
ELIZABETH: WHY?
NIKOLAS: BECAUSE YOU DON'T
NEED TO DEAL WITH HER AT ALL.
ELIZABETH: BELIEVE ME,
THAT WOULD BE FINE WITH ME,
BUT I DON'T SEE HER LEAVING ME
THAT OPTION.
SHE MAKES HERSELF PRETTY HARD
TO IGNORE.
NIKOLAS: WHY?
WHAT DID SHE SAY?
SHE DOESN'T KNOW YOU.
ELIZABETH: NO, BUT SHE STILL
HAS HER --
CONNECTION TO YOU.
NIKOLAS: WHICH IS OVER.
IT'S DONE, IRRELEVANT.
SHE'S GOT -- SHE HAS NOTHING
TO DO WITH YOU OR OUR
FRIENDSHIP.
PROMISE ME THAT THAT WON'T
CHANGE, OK?
NO MATTER WHAT SHE PULLS?
ELIZABETH: YOU THINK
SHE MIGHT TRY SOMETHING?

ALEXIS: ARE WE AWFUL?
NED: NO, WE ARE SUPERB.
ALEXIS: ARE WE -- I MEAN,
REALLY, ARE WE AWFUL?
ARE WE SELFISH?
I MEAN, MAYBE THEY REALLY DID
WANT OUR COMPANY.
NED: DID YOU SEE HOW
THEY BOLTED FOR THE DOOR?
ALEXIS: WELL, OF COURSE,
BUT THEY DO THAT ALL THE TIME
BECAUSE THEY'RE TRYING TO BE
CONSIDERATE OF ANY TIME THAT
WE GET TO BE ALONE TOGETHER.
NED: AND THOSE ARE FEW
AND FAR BETWEEN.
ALEXIS: WELL, IT MUST BE
SO AWKWARD FOR THEM.
I MEAN, THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT
TO DO WITH THEMSELVES.
NED: WAIT A MINUTE,
ARE YOU FEELING LIKE
A NEGLECTFUL WIFE HERE?
ALEXIS: I'M NOT SAYING THAT
JAX FEELS NEGLECTED.
THAT'S --
DO YOU THINK HE DOES?
NED: ALEXIS --
ALEXIS: LOOK, I MAY BE A SHAM
OF A WIFE, AGERTRUDE SO KINDLY
PUTS IT.
BUT REALLY, MUST I BE A COMPLETE
FAILURE AT THIS SO-CALLED
STARTER MARRIAGE?
NED: OK.
IF JAX HAS A DOZEN REAL WIVES --
AND LET'S FACE IT, HE COULD.
I MEAN, AFTER YOU GET TO KNOW
THE GUY, YOU REALIZE HE'S
EMINENTLY DUMPABLE.
IF HE HAS A NEW WIFE EVERY TIME
HE HAS AN OIL CHANGE, THEY WILL
STILL NEVER STACK UP TO YOU.
FROM NOW ON, IT'S ALL DOWNHILL
FOR HIM.
AND MAYBE HE EVEN KNOWS IT.
MAYBE THAT'S WHY HE OCCASIONALLY
TURNS CONSIDERATE AND ALLOWS ME
SOME TIME WITH YOU.
AND CHLOE -- DON'T YOU WORRY
ABOUT HER.
SHE DOESN'T THINK WE'RE AWFUL.
IN FACT, SHE'S SO MORTIFIED
BY THIS WHOLE SITUATION THAT
I THINK IF WE LEFT OUR SHOES
OUTSIDE OUR DOOR EVERY NIGHT
OF OUR LIFE, WE'D WAKE UP
AND THEY'D BE SHINED.
ALEXIS: I DO WISH SHE'D STOP
THANKING ME.
NED: WE ARE NOT SELFISH.
WE ARE, IF I DO SAY SO MYSELF,
DEPRIVED.
I THINK THAT OUR PICTURE SHOULD
BE IN THE DICTIONARY UNDER
THE TERM "GOOD SPORT."
AND I WANT TO PROMISE
YOU SOMETHING.
ALEXIS: OH, EVEN IF IT MEANS
BREAKING OUR MARRIAGE VOWS?
NED: YES.
I WANT TO PROMISE YOU THAT AFTER
THIS WHOLE MISMARRIAGE MESS IS
ALL SQUARED AWAY, THAT
YOU AND I ARE GOING BACK TO ROME
FOR SOME VERY PUBLIC KISSES
IN SOME VERY PUBLIC PLACES THAT
WE SAW TODAY HOLDING OTHER
PEOPLE'S HANDS.
IS THAT A DEAL?
ALEXIS: DEAL.

JAX: GOOD NIGHT, GOOD NIGHT,
AND TO HELL WITH YOU.
CHLOE: DID YOU JUST LOSE
MILLIONS OF DOLLARS?
JAX: NO, I JUST HUNG UP
ON MY BROTHER.
CHLOE: JERRY?
JAX: YEAH, HE SAID HE'D CALL
BACK IN THE MORNING.
CHLOE: AFTER HE FAXES
YOU THE --
JAX: YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT.
CHLOE: WHICH YOU'RE GOING
TO SPEND THE WHOLE NIGHT
READING.
SO FORGET THE SPANISH STEPS?
JAX: FAT CHANCE.
WAIT RIGHT HERE WHILE I CHANGE.
CHLOE: DOES JERRY SPEAK
GERMAN, TOO?
JAX: HE CAN MAKE A NUISANCE
OUT OF HIMSELF IN MOST
LANGUAGES.

JAX: [GERMAN ACCENT]
ARE YOU READY, MY FRAULEIN?
CHLOE: "NAKED IN A FOUNTAIN."
JAX: [NORMAL VOICE]
WHAT'S AN UNSAFE PLACE TO BE
CAUGHT IN A THUNDERSTORM?
CHLOE: DON'T PLAY INNOCENT
WITH ME.
THAT IS WHAT YOU SAID YESTERDAY
TO THOSE ANNIVERSARY PEOPLE
IN GERMAN.
I JUST LOOKED IT UP.
WHAT YOU SAID YOU SAID WAS,
"ALL I WANT TO DO IS DANCE
WITH YOU."
WHAT YOU LEFT OUT WAS "NAKED
IN A FOUNTAIN."
JAX: I WONDER WHY I WOULD SAY
THAT.
CHLOE: HAVE YOU HEARD
SCANDALOUS THINGS ABOUT ME
WRITTEN IN A MILANESE FASHION
MAGAZINE?
JAX: NO.
ARE THERE ANY TO BE READ?
CHLOE: HAVE YOU HEARD
UNSEEMLY RUMORS ABOUT HOW I LIKE
TO LIVEN UP BORING PARTIES?
JAX: NO.
BUT WHY DON'T YOU TELL ME MORE.
CHLOE: OR MAYBE HAVE
YOU JUMPED TO THE CONCLUSION
THAT SINCE I CAN BARELY STAND
TO HAVE SHOES ON MY FEET,
THAT THE SAME APPLIES FOR PANTS,
BLOUSES, SKIRTS, MUUMUUS,
OVERALLS, AND UNMENTIONABLES?
JAX: I THINK I'D REMEMBER
THAT.
CHLOE: OR MAYBE YOU WOULD
LIKE TO BE NAKED IN A FOUNTAIN.
I MEAN, I'M AN OPEN-MINDED
WOMAN, BUT IF YOU'RE GOING
TO INDULGE IN THAT KIND
OF BEHAVIOR, THERE IS A FAVOR
I HAVE TO ASK.
JAX: OH, YEAH?
WHAT WOULD THAT BE?
CHLOE: WELL, COULD WE STOP
AND PICK UP A WATERPROOF
DISPOSABLE CAMERA?

ALEXIS: I THINK WE SHOULD GET
JAX A VERY NICE CHRISTMAS
PRESENT.
NED: WHY?
HE SHOULD BE PAYING ME RENT.
OR PAYING ME DAMAGES FOR MY PAIN
AND SUFFERING.
ALEXIS: WE'VE ALWAYS TAKEN
BEING ALONE FOR GRANTED.
I THINK MOST COUPLES DO THAT,
AS IF THE TIME WERE OWED
TO THEM.
I MEAN, WE NEVER, EVER THOUGHT
THAT THERE WAS EVER ANY SENSE
OF URGENCY.
I MEAN, IF I WORK A 10-HOUR DAY
INSTEAD OF A 14-HOUR DAY
AND THEN I CALL YOU UP, I SAY,
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"
AND YOU SAY, "I'M BUSY,"
OR I SAY TO YOU, "I'M BUSY."
IT DOESN'T EVEN MATTER
BECAUSE WE KNOW THERE WILL BE
ANOTHER TIME, RIGHT?
BUT SOMEDAY -- I DON'T KNOW
WHEN -- THERE WON'T BE ANOTHER
TIME.
WE'LL HAVE SEEN EACH OTHER
FOR THE LAST TIME.
AND WE'LL NEVER HAVE KNOWN THAT.

SONNY: I WANT YOU TO KNOW
THAT KEEPING YOU IN MY LIFE WAS
SOMETHING I NEVER LOST SIGHT OF,
NOT FOR A DAY, NOT FOR AN HOUR.
AND I KNOW YOU'RE PROBABLY
SITTING THERE THINKING I GOT
A STRANGE WAY OF SHOWING IT.
I CAN BE PRETTY STUBBORN.
I CAN BE SELFISH, AND I WANT
THINGS THE WAY I WANT THEM.
THESE ARE THINGS I KNOW ABOUT
MYSELF.
AND MAYBE I SHOULDN'T HAVE
EXPECTED IT, BUT I WAS HOPING
THAT YOU WOULD WAIT FOR ME,
NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
HANNAH: AND HOPING MAGICALLY
THAT I WOULD KNOW ALL OF THIS
WITHOUT YOU SAYING A WORD.
SONNY: YEAH.
HANNAH: I TRIED TO TELL
MYSELF ALL OF THOSE THINGS,
SONNY.
BUT IT WAS LIKE YOU CUT OFF
THE AIR SUPPLY, YOU KNOW?
I MEAN, IT'S ONE THING TO BE
SHUT OFF FROM YOUR BUSINESS,
BUT THEN TO BE SHUT OFF
FROM THE REST OF YOUR LIFE,
TOO, TO BE TOLD THAT I'M NOT
EVEN ALLOWED TO LOOK
AT YOUR PAIN --
IT'S LIKE TREATING ME LIKE
COMPANY, YOU KNOW.
IT'S LIKE YOU DON'T WANT THAT
PERSON TO COME OVER UNLESS
THE HOUSE IS CLEAN.
BUT IF SHARING THE BAD
AND THE GOOD IS SOMETHING THAT
YOU'RE NOT READY FOR YET,
THEN I'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT
TILL YOU CAN.

NIKOLAS: WELL, WHY SHOULD
I CARE ABOUT WHAT KATHERINE DOES
NOW, HUH?
AND MORE IMPORTANTLY,
WHY SHOULD YOU?
ELIZABETH: WELL, IF SOMETHING
SHE'S DOING IS MAKING CHAOS
OF YOUR LIFE, THEN I'M
YOUR FRIEND AND NATURALLY I'M
GOING TO CARE.
NIKOLAS: I DIDN'T SAY SHE WAS
DOING ANYTHING.
ELIZABETH: NIKOLAS, I'M NOT
CRITICIZING.
NIKOLAS: IF I SEEM TO BE
GETTING UPSET, IT'S ALL DONE
FOR THE SAME REASON.
DOES EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE HAVE
TO BE ABOUT KATHERINE?
ABOUT THIS -- THIS COLOSSAL,
HUMILIATING MISTAKE I MADE THAT
EVERYONE KNOWS WAS A MISTAKE
BUT ME?
CAN'T I JUST HAVE ONE PLACE
IN MY LIFE, ONE PERSON WHOSE
FIRST QUESTION ISN'T,
"SO, WHAT'S THE LATEST NEWS
ON THE DUMBEST THING
YOU EVER DID?"
ELIZABETH: OF COURSE YOU CAN.
NIKOLAS: LOOK, I'M BEING
IMPOSSIBLE.
I KNOW I AM.
I --
I DON'T KNOW.
I'LL CATCH YOU LATER, OK?
ELIZABETH: WAIT, NIKOLAS.
DAMN YOU, KATHERINE.

SONNY: YOU DIDN'T THROW IT
AT ME.
I GUESS I DIDN'T HAVE TO WEAR
MY RUBBER T-SHIRT.
HANNAH: MY THROAT WAS DRY.
WAITILL I ASK FOR A REFILL.
SONNY: HOW ABOUT CATCHING ME
UP ON HANNAH'S WORLD?
WHAT WERE YOU DOING WHILE
I WAS --
WHILE MY HEAD WAS IN A HOLE?
HANNAH: BESIDES DRIVING TAMMY
CRAZY, COSTING LUKE CUSTOMERS,
RUNNING MARATHONS THROUGH
THE PARK?
SONNY: THAT'S HOW YOU WORRY
HANNAH: AND YOU KNOW WHO
WORRIED RIGHT ALONG WITH ME?
YOUR FATHER.
SONNY: WOW.
YOU HAD TO PUT UP WITH MIKE,
TOO, HUH?
WHAT'S SO FUNNY?
HANNAH: I JUST REALIZED HOW
MUCH I MISSED YOU.

FAISON: THIS IS ALL VERY
NICE.
ALL WE LACK IS THE CHAMPAGNE.
MAC: ALL WE LACK ARE
THE CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS,
THE WITNESSES -- ALL
THE EVIDENCE YOU MADE DISAPPEAR.
FAISON: SO I'M --
TAGGERT: YEAH.
YOU'RE FREE TO GO.
WANT ME TO SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU?
FAISON: NO, YOU DON'T HAVE
TO SPELL OUT A DAMN THING.
I SAW IT COMING.
MAC: I BET YOU DID.
FAISON: YEAH, BUT UNLIKE YOU,
SCORPIO, I'M THE KIND OF A GUY
WHO CAN LET BYGONES BE BYGONES.
I WON'T HOLD THIS LITTLE
UNFORTUNATE CASE -- WHAT WOULD
AN ATTORNEY CALL IT?
WHAT DO YOU THINK ATTORNEY WOULD
CALL IT?
FALSE IMPRISONMENT?
I WON'T HOLD IT AGAINST YOU.
DON'T WORRY ABOUT A THING.
MISUNDERSTANDING HAPPENS.
BUT ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT I'M
VERY HAPPY THAT WE CLEARED
THINGS UP SO FAST.
MAC: NOTHING'S CLEARED UP,
FAISON -- JUST COVERED UP,
WHICH IS WHAT YOU DO BEST.
INTERESTING HOW YOU MADE ALL
THOSE FEDERAL CHARGES JUST
DISAPPEAR.
FAISON: WELL, IF YOU INSIST.
MAC: WELL, YOU ARE
A FREE MAN.
THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO
ABOUT IT.
BUT I WOULD SUGGEST THAT
YOU TAKE YOUR SHINY NEW FREEDOM
AND SET UP YOUR PRETTY LITTLE
HOUSE SOMEPLACE ELSE
BECAUSE I CAN GUARANTEE THAT
LIFE IN PORT CHARLES WILL NOT BE
PLEASANT.
FAISON: I'M SURE YOU WILL
GIVE ME ONE HELL OF A TIME
IN PORT CHARLES.
BUT I LIKE THE CITY HERE --
THE ENERGY, ITS BEAUTY.
WELL, MAYBE I'LL GET TIRED OF IT
SOMEDAY, BUT UNTIL NOW,
I'M DOING JUST FINE.
MAC: GO ON.
GIVE HIM HIS BELONGINGS AND GET
HIM THE HELL OUT OF MY OFFICE.
FELICIA: THOSE SUNGLASSES --
THEY'RE MINE.

FAISON: YOURS?
I DON'T SEE HOW.
MAC: TAKE ANOTHER LOOK,
FELICIA.
ARE YOU SURE?
FELICIA: I'M POSITIVE.
YOU REMEMBER THE DAY?
THAT DAY OF CHLOE'S WEDDING
WHERE I LOST THEM AND I COULDN'T
FIND THEM AND YOU SAID THAT
I WOULDN'T LET YOU WEAR GLASSES
TO THE WEDDING.
DO YOU REMEMBER THAT?
MAC: AT KELLY'S, RIGHT?
FELICIA: YES.
FAISON: YEAH, KELLY'S.
THAT MAKES SENSE.
THAT'S WHERE I FOUND THEM,
OUTSIDE ON A TABLE.
BUT IF THEY BELONG TO YOU,
OF COURSE YOU SHOULD HAVE THEM
BACK.
FELICIA: I NO LONGER HAVE USE
FOR THEM.
FAISON: NO?
FELICIA: NO.
MAC: ENOUGH OF YOUR MIND
GAMES, FAISON.
YOU AND I -- WE HAVE UNFINISHED
BUSINESS WHICH I INTEND
TO FINISH.
FAISON: I WOULD LIKE TO THANK
BOTH OF YOU.
FOR THE CIVILITY.
AFTER ALL, NO BRUISES, NO BROKEN
BONES.
IT'S BEEN ALL VERY PLEASANT.
AND TO YOU, SCORPIO, I WOULD
LIKE TO TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE
A MUCH KINDER AND MUCH GENTLER
COMMISSIONER.
MAC: DON'T COUNT ON IT.
TAGGERT: I'LL MAKE SURE
HE FINDS THE FRONT DOOR.
IN FACT, MAYBE I'LL MAKE SURE
HE FINDS THE COUNTY LINE.
MAC: OH, THAT'S GOOD
BECAUSE THERE'S PLENTY OF BUSES
OUT THERE GOING TO ALL SORTS
OF INTERESTING PLACES.
FAISON: WELL, HOW ABOUT
A CAB?
TAGGERT: LET'S GO.
MOVE.
MAC: HEY, HEY, HEY.
HEY.
HEY.
FELICIA: OH! GOD!
MAC: HEY.

KATHERINE: DR. MEADOWS,
I HAVE WORKED HERE AT G.H. AS
A CONSULTANT, AND I HAVE MADE
MY SHARE OF FRIENDS AND ENEMIES.
BUT MY PRIVACY IS VERY IMPORTANT
TO ME.
DR. MEADOWS: KATHERINE,
IF YOUR CONCERN IS
DOCTOR-PATIENT
CONFIDENTIALITY --
KATHERINE: NO, NO, NO.
IT'S NOT THAT AT ALL.
I TRUST YOU COMPLETELY.
IT'S -- WELL, IT'S THE PRIVACY
OF MY RECORDS THAT I'M CONCERNED
ABOUT.
NOT TO SOUND PARANOID
OR ANYTHING, BUT THERE ARE
VARIOUS HOSPITAL EMPLOYEES WHO
MIGHT GET ACCESS TO THEM.
DR. MEADOWS: ONLY IF AND WHEN
YOU BECOME AN INPATIENT,
AND EVEN THEN, ONLY IF HOSPITAL
SAFEGUARDS ARE BREACHED.
BUT YOUR CHART STAYS
IN MY OFFICE.
NO ONE HAS ACCESS TO IT EXCEPT
MY NURSE AND MYSELF.
KATHERINE: I SUPPOSE I KNEW
THAT, BUT I'M GLAD TO HEAR IT.
DR. MEADOWS: OK.
I'LL SEE YOU SOON.
KATHERINE: THANK YOU.

NIKOLAS: I CAN FEEL YOU HERE.
I DIDN'T THINK I'D BE ABLE TO.
I HOPED.
NIKOLAS: I NEVER REALIZED HOW
MUCH I STARTED TO DEPEND ON YOU,
CONFIDE IN YOU.
NIKOLAS: I THOUGHT --
I THOUGHT I'D ALWAYS HAVE THAT.
A BROTHER IS SOMEONE WHO YOU'RE
STUCK WITH,
SOMEONE WHO'S ALWAYS THERE,
RIGHT?
NIKOLAS: KATHERINE IS --
IS PREGNANT.
THAT'S WHAT SHE SAYS.
I
DON'T KNOW IF IT'S TRUE.
I CAN'T -- I CAN'T SAY THAT
IT'S NOT.
NIKOLAS: IN A FEW MONTHS,
I COULD BE -- I COULD BE
SOMEBODY'S FATHER.
ME.
ME.
I HARDLY KNEW HOW TO BE
A BROTHER UNTIL IT WAS ALMOST
TOO LATE.
PEOPLE WHO USED TO BE PRINCES
AREN'T -- AREN'T VERY GOOD
AT REAL LIFE.
LAURA, ELIZABETH, EVERYONE
RUNNING AROUND ALWAYS WORRIED
ABOUT ME AND MY MISTAKES,
INSTEAD OF ME TAKING CARE
OF THEM FOR YOU, THE WAY IT
SHOULD BE.
NIKOLAS: THE WAY I PROMISED
IT WOULD BE.
THAT DAY I STOOD AT YOUR GRAVE,
I --
WHY DON'T I KNOW WHAT TO DO?
YOU WOULD.
NIKOLAS: OH, WHY AREN'T
YOU HERE TO TELL ME?
WHY?

HANNAH: SO, WHAT'S
OFF-LIMITS?
SONNY: YOU MEAN, ARE THERE
CERTAIN SUBJECTS THAT I DON'T
WANT TO DISCUSS?
HANNAH: WELL, I'M NOT TRYING
TO GET HEAVY ON YOU.
IT'S JUST NOW THAT I'VE BEEN
ALLOWED BACK IN, IS IT SAFE
TO ASSUME THAT THE KITCHEN
DOOR'S OPEN, TOO?
SONNY: WHY?
HANNAH: I WANT TO COOK
FOR YOU.
SONNY: YEAH?
HANNAH: WHAT?
IT'S NOT LIKE YOU HAVE POISON
IN THE HOUSE, RIGHT?
SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT
MY TEMPER GETTING THE BEST
OF ME.
SONNY: WELL, I JUST,
YOU KNOW --
CAN WE JUST MAYBE JUST TAKE IT
ONE STEP AT A TIME, YOU KNOW?
HANNAH: YEAH.
THAT'S WHAT I SAID EARLIER,
IF YOU WERE PAYING ATTENTION.
SONNY: I MEAN, HEY, YOU KNOW,
IT'S BEEN GREAT.
IT'S NICE, FANTASTIC, YOU KNOW.
CONSIDERING, THIS IS LIKE
A MIRACLE, BUT --
BUT CAN WE JUST NOT PUSH IT?
HANNAH: YOU HAVE TO EAT.
I HAVE TO EAT.
I KNOW YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GO
COOK FOR YOURSELF, RIGHT?
SO JUST LET ME THROW A BUNCH
OF STUFF IN.
I'LL WHIP IT UP IN 20 MINUTES.
IT'LL KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF.
SONNY: ALL RIGHT.

ALEXIS: YOU ARE SO --
NED: ONLY BECAUSE YOU MADE ME
THAT WAY.
ALEXIS: WHAT WAY?
NED: SO -- LIKE YOU SAID.
ALEXIS: SO -- WHAT DID I SAY?
NED: SO NOT DONE.
ALEXIS: AH.

CHLOE: YOU SHOULD HAVE
REMINDED ME.
JAX: WHY DO I CARE
IF YOU CARRY A SKETCH PAD?
CHLOE: BECAUSE IF I DON'T,
PEOPLE ASK ME ALL SORTS
OF QUESTIONS -- "CAN YOU TELL ME
WHICH WAY THIS IS?" OR "CAN
I HELP YOU?"
AND I CAN'T ANSWER IN GERMAN.
ALL I CAN DO IS LOOK VACANT.
JAX: I LIKE IT WHEN YOU DO
THAT.
CHLOE: I KNOW YOU LIKE IT.
YOU LIKE IT TOO MUCH.
GERTRUDE: WELL, I JUST --
I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH
FOR HELPING ME WITH MY LITTLE
SURPRISE.
MY NIECE WILL BE SO EXCITED
TO SEE ME.

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

CARLY: WE'RE GOING TO MAUI
IN TWO WEEKS?
A.J.: WELCOME TO
YOUR HONEYMOON.

JAX: WHAT ARE YOU DOING
IN ROME?
GERTRUDE: I'M ABOUT
TO DISCOVER MY NIECE'S HUSBAND
IN BED WITH YOUR WIFE.

LAURA: STEFAN.
YOU'RE BACK.
