JAX: OK.
HERE WE GO.
ALEXIS: YOU GOT THAT WORKING?
JAX: YEP.
ALEXIS: ALL RIGHT, GOOD.
JAX: HOLD IT, HOLD IT,
HOLD IT, HOLD IT.
NED, NED, YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE
CARRYING HER.
CHLOE: AGAIN?
JAX: UH-HUH.
NED: BEING MARRIED TO YOU IS
BETTER THAN POWER LIFTING.
CHLOE: TALK ABOUT
AN ALBATROSS AROUND YOUR NECK.
ALEXIS: ALL RIGHT,
PEOPLE, LET'S GO.
WE DON'T HAVE ALL DAY.
LET'S SMILE, AND WE'LL GET THIS
DONE.
CHLOE: THIS IS THE THIRD
THRESHOLD WE'LL HAVE ON FILM.
IS NED DOOMED TO SPEND THE NEXT
YEAR OF HIS LIFE CARRYING ME
THROUGH DOORWAYS?
NED: NO.
ONLY 348 DAYS TO GO.
ALEXIS: I THOUGHT IT WAS 347.
CHLOE: WAIT.
PUT ME DOWN.
YOU ALL CAN'T SERIOUSLY THINK
THAT I EXPECT YOU TO SPEND
THE NEXT YEAR OF YOUR LIVES LIKE
WE HAVE THESE LAST FEW WEEKS.
JAX: LOOK, WE KNOW IT'S ONLY
UNTIL GERTRUDE GETS SICK
OF HOUNDING US AND GOES BACK
HOME.
ALEXIS: APPARENTLY
THE MORGANS COME FROM A FAIRLY
UNTIRING CLAN.
CHLOE: I HAVE TO BELIEVE THAT
BARGING IN ON ME AND CATCHING ME
IN BED WITH THE MAN I MARRIED
MADE AN IMPRESSION ON HER.
JAX: WELL, I CAN ONLY
HOPE SO.
NED: YOU MIGHT WANT TO KEEP
YOUR VOICES DOWN.
CHLOE: GERTRUDE COULDN'T
POSSIBLY HAVE BEATEN US BACK
FROM ROME.
NED: YES, BUT MY ENTIRE
FAMILY IS JUST UP THE DRIVEWAY,
AND THEY'RE PROBABLY TESTING
THE WALLS AND THE WINDOWS
WITH STETHOSCOPES, WAITING
FOR SOMETHING TO EAVESDROP ON.
CHLOE: THIS IS MAKING ME
DESPERATE.
JAX: YOU THINK YOU'RE
DESPERATE?
YOU KNOW, THE LIGHTING WAS
PERFECT, THE FOCUS WAS
PERFECT, AND YOU GUYS --
CHLOE: NO, I'M SERIOUS.
IT'S BAD ENOUGH THAT WE'VE BEEN
PULLING THIS CHARADE OFF FOR,
LIKE, A MONTH.
BUT TO HAVE THWARTED GERTRUDE
ONLY TO HAVE THE ENTIRE
QUARTERMAINE HOUSEHOLD PEEPING
IN THROUGH THE CURTAINS -- THEN
I GIVE UP.
I'M CALLING THIS WHOLE THING
OFF.
ALEXIS: ALL RIGHT,
THAT'S NOT --
JAX: YOU KNOW WHAT?
WE APPRECIATE THE THOUGHT.
ALEXIS: WE DO.
AND WE KNOW THAT YOU HAD NO IDEA
HOW RIDICULOUSLY TANGLED THIS
WOULD ALL BECOME.
JAX: YES, BUT WE'RE WAY
BEYOND THE POINT WHERE ANY
OF US --
ALEXIS: RIGHT.
JAX: EVEN YOU -- CAN CALL
THIS WHOLE THING OFF.
ALEXIS: EXACTLY.
JAX: BECAUSE NOW THERE'S
MY FAMILY TO CONSIDER AS WELL,
RIGHT?
ALEXIS: RIGHT.
JAX: AND THAT'S NOT
YOUR FAULT.
NED: AND YOU'RE RIGHT.
I MEAN, ONCE GERTRUDE IS OUT
OF OUR HAIR, THE FACT THAT
YOUR HUSBAND AND HIS WIFE ARE
HAVING AN EXTRAMARITAL AFFAIR IS
REALLY NOTHING ANY MORE
NOTEWORTHY THAN ANY OTHER
MARITAL INFIDELITY IN TOWN.
CHLOE: BUT YOU JUST SAID
YOUR FAMILY IS GOING TO BE
LOOKING --
NED: I KNOW.
IT'S TRUE THAT GRANDFATHER'S
HELLBENT ON GRINDING ME UNDER
HIS HEEL AT THE MOMENT,
BUT THEY HAVE A VERY SHORT
ATTENTION SPAN.
AND THERE'LL BE A NEW CRISIS
TO DIVERT THEIR ATTENTION WITHIN
THE NEXT MONTH.
HECK, WITHIN THE NEXT WEEK.

EDWARD: WELL, IS HE HERE
YET -- OUR LITTLE
RUNAWAY/DINNER GUEST?
MONICA: NOT YET.
HOW DO I LOOK?
ALAN: RADIANT.
MONICA: NOT WHAT I WAS GOING
FOR.
EDWARD: WELL, I THINK ALAN
WAS JUST TRYING TO BE KIND.
MONICA: I DON'T WANT THAT BOY
THINKING HE CAN DROP IN ANY TIME
HE'S IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD.
EDWARD: LOOK, WHY DON'T
WE JUST HAVE HIM FOR BREAKFAST?
MAYBE SOME MILK AND COOKIES.
MUST WE WASTE AN ENTIRE EVENING
JUST ENTERTAINING ONE OF SONNY
CORINTHOS' PROTEGES?
ALAN: HEY, DON'T LOOK AT ME.
LAST THING I HEARD WAS EMILY
WASN'T SUPPOSED TO BE WITHIN
15 FEET OF HIM.
MONICA: IT WASN'T MY IDEA.
LILA INVITED HIM TO DINNER.
WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO DO?
IF YOU WANT TO PICK A FIGHT
WITH HER, YOU GO AHEAD.
EDWARD: I'M JUST WORRIED
ABOUT WHO'S GOING TO BE WATCHING
THE VALUABLES.
THAT'S WHAT CONCERNS ME.
REMEMBER, WE STILL DON'T HAVE
THAT SILVER BOWL BACK
FROM JASON.
ALAN: WHAT SILVER BOWL?
MONICA: DON'T START.
JASON NEVER TOOK A BOWL --
SILVER OR OTHERWISE.
ALAN: ARE YOU STARTING
WITH THE SILVER BOWL AGAIN?
I HAVE NO RECOLLECTION
WHATSOEVER --
EDWARD: OF COURSE YOU DON'T
HAVE A RECOLLECTION.
YOU WERE PROBABLY ON DRUGS.
ALAN: HA!
IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT.
EDWARD: LILA, ALAN WAS JUST
SAYING THAT IT'S AN OUTRAGE THAT
YOU KEEP INSISTING ON
INTERFERING WITH HIS REARING
OF HIS DAUGHTER.
ALAN: I DIDN'T SAY THAT.
HOWEVER, IT IS NOT WITHOUT
A GRAIN OF TRUTH, MOTHER.
LILA: IT'S AN OUTRAGE FOR ME
TO INVITE SOMEONE TO DINNER
IN MY OWN HOUSE?
ALAN: IT'S MONICA'S HOUSE.
MONICA: YOU GAVE IT TO ME.
EDWARD: LOOK, YOUNG PEOPLE
TODAY NEED DISCIPLINE FAR MORE
THAN THEY NEED DINNER.
AND MIRACLE OF MIRACLES,
ALAN AND MONICA HAVE FINALLY
PAID ENOUGH ATTENTION TO ONE
OF THEIR CHILDREN TO PROVIDE
SOME OF THAT DISCIPLINE.
BUT NO.
YOU JUST KEEP UNDERMINING
THEIR EFFORTS.
AND NOW THE LITTLE GIRL CANNOT
ONLY SEE THAT THUG, SHE CAN
PARADE HIM RIGHT UNDER
OUR NOSES.
LILA: YOU, MORE THAN ANYONE,
SHOULD KNOW HOW FUTILE IT IS
TO THINK THAT PARENTAL
DISAPPROVAL CAN SEPARATE TWO
PEOPLE IN LOVE.
ALAN: "LOVE"?
MONICA: EMILY SAID THAT?
EDWARD: HOGWASH.
AT THEIR AGE, IT'S JUST
SOMETHING GLANDULAR.
LILA: JUAN IS MY GUEST THIS
EVENING, AND HE'LL BE TREATED
UNDERSTOOD?
EDWARD: ALL RIGHT.

BOBBIE: OH, WOW.
MUCH BETTER.
JUAN: ARE YOU SURE?
TAMMY: OOH.
TSST.
VERY HOT.
VERY HOT.
BOBBIE: YES, VERY HOT.
YOU KNOW, THE QUARTERMAINES ARE
A BIT FORMAL, AND YOU WOULDN'T
HAVE BEEN MFORTABLE
IN THEIR HOUSE IN A SHIRT
WITHOUT SLEEVES.
JUAN: IT WAS SILK.
BOBBIE: OH, AND IT LOOKED
VERY NICE.
JUAN: YOU KNOW, IT'S NOT
GOING TO MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE
WHAT I WEAR ANYWAY.
THEY ALREADY DON'T LIKE ME.
BOBBIE: HMM.
WELL, YOU KNOW, THE
QUARTERMAINES AREN'T LIKE MOST
PEOPLE.
THEY HAVE VERY STRONG OPINIONS
ABOUT THINGS, BUT THEY'RE NOT
NECESSARILY THE SAME STRONG
OPINIONS FROM DAY TO DAY.
IT MTLY DEPENDS ON WHOSE SIDE
TH FEEL LIKE BEING ON.
I'M NOT HELPING MUCH, AM I?
JUAN: NO.
BOBBIE: I'M SORRY.
EMILY: OH.
YOU DRESSED UP.
JUAN: YEAH.
I WAS JUST GOING TO CALL
YOU AND SAY I WASN'T COM
BUT WITH YOU LOOKING LIKE THAT,
GUESS I HAVE TO.
I GOT THIS FOR YOUR GR
BOBBIE: I DIDN'T EVELL
HIM TO DO THAT.
EMILY: OH.
WELL, IT'S VERY SWEET AND VERY
SMART, BUT WE GOT TO GO.
REGINALD'S WAITING IN THE CAR.
JUAN: WHO?
EMILY: HE'S THE BUTLER.
HE DRIVES US AROUND.
HE'S NOT IN A VERY GOOD MOOD
LATELY, THOUGH.
COME ON.
[CAR HORN HONKS]
BOBBIE: HAVE A GOOD TIME.
JUAN: WAIT, WAIT.
EMILY: WHAT?
JUAN: JUST IN CASE TONIGHT'S
A TOTAL DISASTER AND I NEVER GET
TO DO THAT AGAIN.
EMILY: IT WON'T BE.
I KNOW IT WON'T BE.
EY'RE GOING TO LIKE YOU.
THEY WON'T BE ABLE TO HELP
THEMSELVES.

FAISON: FEELING ANY BETTER?
I'LL TAKE THAT FOR A NO.
I'M VERY CONCERNED ABOUT
YOUR LACK OF PROGRESS, HELENA.
LIKE YOU,
I HAVE THIS MINOR BACKGROUND
IN THE MEDICAL AS.
SO I TOOK THE LIBERTY
OF OBTAING ALL YOUR MEDICAL
RECORDS HERE AND IN GREECE.
AND APPARENTLY YOUR DOCTORS
BELIEVE THAT YOU'RE SUFFERING
A RELAPSE OF YOUR PRE-EXISTING
CONDITION.
BUT I DON'T THINK SO.
I THINK YOU'VE BEEN POISONED.

STEFAN: WELL, THANK
YOU FOR THE INVITATION.
NIKOLAS: YEAH, IT WAS FUN.
STEFAN: YES.
IT'S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE
WE'VE RIDDEN TOGETHER.
NIKOLAS: IT'S TAKEN SO LONG
TO GET THE STABLES HERE
FINISHED.
AND THEN --
YOU KNOW, I COULD USE SOMETHING
COLD TO DRINK.
YOU WANT ONE?
STEFAN: NIKOLAS, I'VE BEEN
HOME FOR TWO DAYS NOW, AND ALL
YOU'VE DONE IS MAKE POLITE
CONVERSATION AND OFFER TO GET ME
THINGS I DIDN'T NEED.
I CAN TELL WHEN SOMETHING IS
PREYING ON YOUR MIND.
WOULD YOU CARE TO LET ME
IN ON WHAT IT IS?

NIKOLAS: THERE IS SOMETHING
I'VE BEEN CARRYING AROUND
WITH ME.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
I KNEW IT WOULD COME UP BETWEEN
US, BUT I THOUGHT I'D BE FARTHER
ALONG IN ACCEPTING IT,
KNOWING WHAT TO DO.
STEFAN: YOU MISS
YOUR BROTHER.
NIKOLAS: YES.
STEFAN: IT'S NOT HARD TO SEE.
YOU KNOW, SINCE LUCKY DIED,
I HAVE -- I'VE TRIED TO RESPECT
YOUR GRIEF.
I DOUBTED YOU WOULD WANT
TO SHARE IT WITH ME, KNOWING HOW
I OPPOSED YOUR RELATIONSHIP
AT THE BEGINNING.
BUT I WAS WRONG ABOUT LUCKY.
I JUDGED HIM TOO HARSHLY.
I WAS IMPATIENT WITH HIS
BLIND LOYALTY TO LUKE
AND THEN LATER WITH THE WAY
HE TREATED HIS MOTHER.
NIKOLAS: BECAUSE OF US.
BECAUSE OF WHAT I TOLD HIM ABOUT
HIS PARENTS.
STEFAN: YES.
AND THEN, STILL LATER,
WHEN I HAD NO FAULT TO FIND
WITH HIM ON THOSE GROUNDS,
IT MAY BE I WAS EVEN
JEALOUS.
I HAD ALWAYS BEEN YOUR
CONFIDANT, NIKOLAS --
OWING, I SUPPOSE, TO
THE OLATION OF YOUR CHILDHOOD,
WHICH IS NOT SOMETHING THAT
I EVER WANTED FOR YOU.
I HAD HOPED THAT YOUR LEARNING
THAT YOU WERE MY SON
AND NOT MY NEPHEW
WOULD BRING US CLOSER.
AND THEN KATHERINE,
OF ALL PEOPLE, CAME BETWEEN US.
YOUR BROTHER WAS YOUR NEW
BEST FRIEND --
SOMEONE YOUR OWN AGE
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YOUR LIFE.
THAT COULD ONLY HAVE MADE
THE LOSS MORE DEVASTATING
FOR YOU.
NIKOLAS: NO FRIEND WILL EVER
BE TO ME WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN.
SOMETIMES, YES, IT WAS EASIER
TO TALK TO LUCKY.
HE WASN'T MY FATHER,
SO I WAS NEVER WORRIED ABOUT
DISAPPOINTING HIM.

NED: I RESENT YOUR HUSBAND.
ALEXIS: NOW, NOW.
NED: I MEAN, REALLY.
WHY DIDN'T WE JUST PICK
A BRIDEGROOM RIGHT OFF
THE STREETS OF LAS VEGAS?
ALEXIS: BECAUSE YOU PRIZE ME
ABOVE ALL RUBIES AND SO ON.
RIGHT?
NED: DID YOU HEAR HIM,
TELLING CHLOE TO FORGET IT,
THAT THERE'S NO WAY SHE CAN CALL
THE WHOLE THING OFF?
ALEXIS: WEREN'T YOU AGREEING
WITH HIM?
NED: DON'T DEFEND HIM.
THE PROBLEM WITH JAX IS HE WANTS
TO HAVE HIS CAKE AND EAT IT,
TOO.
ALEXIS: AM I THE CAKE IN THAT
EQUATION?
NED: HE WANTS TO KEEP
YOU AS HIS WIFE AND STILL SNEAK
AROUND IN THE DEAD OF THE NIGHT
AND SEE CHLOE.
ALEXIS: ISN'T THAT THE IDEA?
ISN'T THAT WHAT WE'RE DOING
RIGHT NOW, FOR INSTANCE?
NED: WELL, YES.
BUT I'M NOT CHEESY AND TASTELESS
AND OBVIOUS.
ALEXIS: NO, OF COURSE NOT.
IN FACT, YOU'RE SPLENDID.
NED: I TRY.
ALEXIS: WE NEED TO GET CHLOE
AN OFFICE.
NED: A DESIGN STUDIO.
ALEXIS: BIG AND FULL
OF LIGHT.
NED: AS FAR AWAY AS POSSIBLE.
ALEXIS: MM-HMM.
THAT WAY SHE CAN GO THERE WHEN
SHE DOESN'T HAVE TO BE HERE,
AND THEN, OF COURSE, I'LL BE
BUSY, VERY BUSY, DOING ALL
YOUR VERY IMPORTANT L&B LEGAL
WORK.
NED: THAT'S RIGHT.
AND I HAVE NO END TO THE PEOPLE
I CAN SUE OR SUBPOENA OR LEAVE
THINGS TO IN MY WILL.
ALEXIS: YOU SEE?
THIS IS ALL GOING TO BE JUST
FINE.
[NED SIGHS]

JAX: GIVE IT HERE.
CHLOE: YOUR HANDS ARE FULL.
JAX: NO, IT'S NOT HEAVY.
COME ON.
CHLOE: NO, IT'S GOT A TRICK
LOCK IN IT, AND IT --
JAX: WHOA --
CHLOE: DOES THAT.
JAX: I'M SORRY.
CHLOE: IT'S OK.
HEY.
MY SIGRID COSTUME.
JAX: YOU KNOW, YOU MIGHT WANT
TO CONSIDER GIVING THAT
TO CHARITY.
I MEAN, THERE'S A SLIM CHANCE
ANYONE WILL RECOGNIZE IT
FROM ROME, BUT --
CHLOE: I COULDN'T DO THAT.
I LOVED BEING SIGRID.
SHE MADE ME FEEL VERY ALPINE.
YOU KNOW, I THINK HER CHILDHOOD
WAS A LOT LIKE HEIDI'S.
DID YOU EVER SEE THAT MOVIE
AS A KID -- WHITE-HAIRED
GRANDFATHER RIDES IN ON A SLEIGH
AND SAVES HER?
JAX: DON'T LOOK NOW,
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE ONE SINGLE
RELATIVE, WHITE-HAIRED
OR OTHERWISE, WHO CAN BE
TRUSTED.
WELL, THERE IS YOUR HUSBAND,
BUT I HAVE MY DOUBTS ABOUT HIM.
CHLOE: THERE'S LILA.
JAX: THAT'S TRUE.
BUT SHE'S NOT GOING TO BE
WHIPPING DOWN CENTRAL AVENUE
IN WINTER WITH A TEAM OF HORSES
ANY TIME SOON, IS SHE?
CHLOE: WELL, I DON'T CARE.
I'M KEEPING IT.
AND I DON'T HAVE ANY SOUVENIRS
FROM ROME, SO IT'S PERFECT.
I THINK YOU NEED A SOUVENIR
AS WELL.
HMM?
JAX: WELL, THANK YOU.
YOU OW, IF I WERE MAKING
A LIST OF MY FAVORITE HONEYMOON
MEMORIES, THIS WOULD BE
NUMBER TWO.
CHLOE: WHAT WOULD BE
NUMBER ONE?
JAX: REMIND ME TO SHOW
YOU SOMETIME.

JUAN: EVEN YOUR BUTLER
HATES ME.
EMILY: NO.
HE'S JUST IN LOVE.
YOU READY?
EDWARD: NO SENSE IN LEAVING
THINGS OUT TO TEMPT THAT BOY.
REGINALD: THEY'RE HERE.
EDWARD: HEY.
IS THAT THE WAY YOU ANNOUNCE
GUESTS NOW?
HEY --
EMILY: GRANDFATHER.
HI.
EDWARD: HI.
EMILY: THIS IS JUAN.
JUAN, THIS IS MY --
EDWARD: WHO THE HELL ELSE
WOULD IT BE?
JUAN: IT'S NICE TO MEET YOU,
SIR.
EDWARD: OH -- YES.
EMILY: AND THIS IS
MY GRANDMOTHER.
LILA: I'M SO DELIGHTED
YOU COULD JOIN US THIS EVENING.
JUAN: THANK YOU FOR INVITING
ME, MA'AM.
LILA: I COULDN'T WAIT TO MEET
THE HANDSOME YOUNG MAN THAT
EMILY'S TOLD US SO MUCH ABOUT.
EDWARD: MUST YOU FLIRT
WITH EVERY MAN WHO COMES IN THAT
FRONT DOOR?
EMILY: AHEM.
GRANDMOTHER, JUAN BROUGHT
YOU SOME FLOWERS.
LILA: OH.
JUAN: I WANTED TO MAKE A GOOD
IMPRESSION, BUT NOW THAT I'VE
MET YOU, I SHOULD HAVE GOT MORE.
LILA: OH, THEY'RE LOVELY.
THANK YOU, JUAN.
EMILY: JUAN,
YOU KNOW MY PARENTS.
JUAN: GOOD EVENING.
ALAN: HELLO, JUAN.
JUAN: YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL,
DR. QUARTERMAINE.
ALAN: THANK YOU.
JUAN: NO, I MEANT --
MONICA: WE BOTH THANK YOU.
LILA: HOW ARE YOU ENJOYING
PORT CHARLES NOW, JUAN?
IT MUST BE QUITE DIFFERENT
FROM YOUR OWN HOME.
JUAN: NOT TOO.
I'M A CITY KID.
I ALWAYS LIVED IN MAYAGUEZ.
BUT SO FAR, SO GREAT.
YOU KNOW, ESPECIALLY
THE HOSPITAL.
THE DOCTORS AND NURSES.
DOCTORS ESPECIALLY.
AND THERE'S THIS LADY,
MRS. SPENCER --
MONICA: LAURA?
JUAN: RIGHT.
THE ONE WHO GOT ME INTO
THE PROGRAM SO I CAN IMPROVE
MYSELF.
EDWARD: OH, IS THAT
THE OUTREACH PROGRAM?
JUAN: YES, SIR.
EDWARD: WELL, NOW, WHAT IS IT
THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO IMPROVE,
HUH?
JUAN: WELL, I'D LIKE TO LEARN
MORE ABOUT BUSINESS.
YOU KNOW, IT'S THE HEART
AND SOUL OF THE ECONOMY.
AM I RIGHT?
EDWARD: WELL, LAURA'S
A CHARMING WOMAN.
BUT DON'T EXPECT TO LEARN
ANYTHING PRACTICAL FROM HER --
OR FROM ANY OTHER SPENCER,
FOR THAT MATTER.
MONICA: EDWARD.
JUAN: WELL, SHE SAID
THE PROGRAM WOULD GIVE ME
THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP
MY SKILLS -- MY BUSINESS SKILLS.
EDWARD: OH, I SEE.
WELL, YOU KNOW, AS A MEMBER
OF THE HOSPITAL BOARD, I WAS
RESPONSIBLE FOR PUSHING THAT
PROGRAM THROUGH.
JUAN: WELL, I'M GLAD I HAD
THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHAKE
YOUR HAND, SIR.
I MEAN, YOU PROBABLY HELPED
IN TURNING MY WHOLE FUTURE
AROUND.
EDWARD: WELL, YOU KNOW,
IF YOU APPLY YOURSELF,
THERE'S NO REASON THAT
YOU COULDN'T MAKE YOUR MARK --
BRIGHT, GOOD-LOOKING YOUNG MAN
LIKE YOU.
WELL, I THINK THEY'RE EXPECTING
US IN THE DINING ROOM.
SHALL WE?
HERE WE GO, DEAR.

JAX: HEY.
BOBBIE: HEY, YOU TWO.
WOW.
YOU LOOK WONDERFUL.
ALEXIS: THANK YOU.
BOBBIE: HOW WAS ROME?
ALEXIS and JAX: OH --
JAX: WELL,
HOW WAS ROME?
ALEXIS: WELL, IT WAS ONE
OF THE MOST ROMANTIC TIMES I'VE
EVER HAD -- IN A FOREIGN
COUNTRY.
JAX: YEP, THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT
I WAS GOING TO SAY.
ALEXIS: YEAH.
BOBBIE: WELL, THAT'S GOOD.
BECAUSE A HONEYMOON THAT ONE
OF YOU LOVES AND ONE
OF YOU HATES WOULD BE --
JERRY: A SHAME.
ALEXIS: OH, NO.
REALLY, THE FOOD, THE SIGHTS --
JAX: THE COMPANY.
ALEXIS: THE COMPANY.
AND THE MONEY.
THE MONEY WAS CHARMING.
I FIND IT CHARMING.
I MEAN, ACTUALLY, IT PROBABLY
WHY THE ITALIANS ARE SO DARN
HAPPY --
BECAUSE THEY'RE ALL
GAZILLIONAIRES.
JAX: YEAH.
JERRY: SO A GOOD TIME WAS HAD
BY ALL?
JAX: YEP.
ALEXIS: OH, YEAH.
JAX: TIME OF OUR LIVES.
BOBBIE: WELL, THEN FORGIVE ME
FOR ASKING, BUT WHY DID YOU COME
BACK 10 DAYS EARLY?
ALEXIS: OH, WELL,
IT CERTAINLY WASN'T
BECAUSE WE WANTED TO.
JAX: NO, ACTUAL, NOT AT ALL
BECAUSE -- WELL, ACTUALLY,
IT WAS YOUR FAULT.

EDWARD: THANK YOU.
JUAN: MY FATHER OWNS FOUR
STORES -- TWO IN MAYAGUEZ
AND TWO IN SAN JUAN.
KEEPS HIM ON THE ROAD A LOT.
EDWARD: OH, YOU MEAN
CONVENIENCE STORES?
EMILY: YOU KNOW, THEY STAY
OPEN ALL NIGHT AND THEY'RE
USUALLY NEAR GAS STATIONS.
JUAN: NO, THEY'RE JUST
DEPARTMENT STORES.
EDWARD: OH.
OH, I SEE.
ALAN: SO, WHERE'D YOU GO
TO SCHOOL?
JUAN: SANTA CRUZ.
MONICA: CALIFORNIA?
OH, SO YOU HAVE RUN AWAY
FROM HOME BEFORE.
JUAN: NO, MA'AM.
SANTA CRUZ WAS THE NAME
OF MY SCHOOL IN MAYAGUEZ.
IT WAS LIKE --
LIKE YOU'D SAY HOLY CROSS
ACADEMY IN ENGLISH.
ALAN: PRIVATE SCHOOL?
JUAN: YES, SIR.
VERY STRICT, BUT NOT SO BAD.
I ALMOST GOT KICKED OUT ONCE,
THOUGH.
MONICA: OH, REALLY?
OH, DO TELL US ABOUT IT.
JUAN: WELL, SEE, I WAS
ON THE TRACK TEAM AND I ALSO
PLAYED BASKETBALL, AND ONE DAY
I GOT KIND OF CONFUSED
AND I WORE MY TRACK CLEATS
ON TO THE GYM FLOOR.
REGINALD: EXCUSE ME.
CAN I GET ANYBODY ANYTHING ELSE,
LIKE MAYBE SOME FLIES YOU CAN
PLUCK THE WINGS OFF?
MONICA: BUZZ OFF, REGINALD.
ALAN: WELL, YOU SEEM TO HAVE
HAD A LOT OF WONDERFUL
ADVANTAGES -- GOOD SCHOOL,
GOOD PARENTS.
JUAN: YES, SIR.
ALAN: WELL, THEN, TELL ME
WHAT IS THE PROBLEM.
WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU JUMP
ON A PLANE AND COME TO A STRANGE
CITY TO EAT OUT OF DUMPSTERS
OR PICK PEOPLE'S POCKETS?
EMILY: DAD.
ALAN: NO, I MEAN, I GUARANTEE
YOU THAT I HAVE GOTTEN
MY INFORMATION FROM RUMORS,
SO IF I'M WRONG, PLEASE FEEL
FREE TO CORRECT ME.
LILA: THIS CONVERSATION HAS
BECOME AN INTERROGATION,
AND I DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE
WITH IT.
NED: GUESS WHO'S HOME.

NIKOLAS: SORRY I DON'T HAVE
ANY BRANDY TO OFFER YOU.
STEFAN: I WOULD FIND IT A BIT
UNNERVING IF YOU DID.
NIKOLAS: WELL, I'M GOING
TO GO CHECK AND MAKE SURE
THE HORSES ARE COOLED DOWN
AND BEDDED ALL RIGHT.
I STILL DON'T HAVE CONFIDENCE
IN THIS NEW GROOM YET.
STEFAN: HMM.
NIKOLAS?
NIKOLAS: YEAH?
STEFAN: I NEED TO MAKE
SOMETHING CLEAR.
YOU HAVE NEVER DISAPPOINTED ME.
NEVER.
IT'S TRUE I WASN'T PLEASED ABOUT
YOUR LIAISON WITH KATHERINE,
AND, YES, IT CREATED SOME
DISCOMFORT BETWEEN US.
BUT I CAN HARDLY CRITICIZE
YOU FOR A MISTAKE I MADE MYSELF.
AND I'M SURE IT WAS DIFFICULT
BREAKING THINGS OFF WITH HER.
I KNOW BETTER THAN ANYONE HOW
TENACIOUS THE WOMAN CAN BE.
BUT I AM PROUD OF THE WAY
YOU HANDLED IT.
NIKOLAS: I APPRECIATE
YOUR FAITH IN ME.
STEFAN: YEAH.
WOULD IT BE ALL RIGHT IF I GO
INSIDE AND CHECK MY MESSAGES
BEFORE I LEAVE?
NIKOLAS: YEAH.
OF COURSE.
[FOOTSTEPS APPROACH]
KATHERINE: STEFAN.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
STEFAN: YOU MIGHT SAY
PROVIDENCE SENT ME
TO PREVENT YOU FROM TAKING
ONE MORE STEP.

EMILY: THIS IS MY COUSIN NED
AND HIS WIFE, CHLOE.
THEY JUST GOT BACK FROM
THEIR HONEYMOON.
THIS IS JUAN SANTIAGO.
JUAN: IT'S GREAT TO MEET YOU.
CONGRATULATIONS.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
IT'S A PLEASURE TO MEET YOU,
TOO.
NED: I'VE HEARD A LOT ABOUT
YOU, JUAN.
ALAN: MOTHER INVITED JUAN
OVER FOR DINNER SO WE COULD GET
ACQUAINTED.
MONICA: HOW WAS ROME?
CHLOE: I DON'T THINK
MAGNIFICENT IS TOO STRONG
A WORD.
NED: NO.
CHLOE: BUT WE ARE
INTERRUPTING.
WE JUST CAME TO BRING YOU THIS.
LILA: OH, THOSE DELICIOUS
CANDIED LEMON RINDS.
I JUST LOVE THEM.
CHLOE: THEY'RE FROM THE SHOP
ON THE PIAZZA COLONNA.
LILA: OH, THANK YOU, DEAR.
EDWARD: WHERE'S MY PRESENT?
NED: WELL, WE BROUGHT
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE,
GRANDFATHER, BUT WE THOUGHT WE'D
BRING UP GRANDMOTHER'S BEFORE
SHE TURNED IN.
LILA: I WAS JUST ABOUT TO ASK
REGINALD TO TAKE ME UPSTAIRS.
ALAN: REGINALD?
EDWARD: I'LL DO IT, MY DEAR.
LILA: NO, DEAR, YOU STAY
WITH OUR GUESTS.
MAY I ASK YOU A FAVOR, DEAR?
CHLOE: OF COURSE.
ANYTHING.
LILA: WOULD YOU PLEASE ACT
AS REFEREE?
THAT IS, IF WE NEED ONE.
AND I SHALL LOOK FORWARD
TO HEARING ALL ABOUT YOUR TRIP
IN THE MORNING.
NED: WHATEVER YOU WISH,
GRANDMOTHER.
DOES ANYONE SAY NO TO YOU?
LILA: THANK YOU.
EDWARD: SO, WHAT HAPPENED
TO YOU?
WERE YOU ARRESTED?
MONICA: WEREN'T YOU SUPPOSED
TO BE GONE ANOTHER WEEK?
NED: WELL, YES, BUT WE BOTH
HAVE SOME BUSINESS THAT --
EDWARD: YOU?
WHAT BUSINESS?
COME ON.
NED: BESIDES, HOW MANY
CHURCHES AND RUINS CAN
YOU REALLY SEE?
JUAN: YOU SHOULD HAVE GONE
TO THE OPERA.
NED: OH.
ARE YOU A MUSIC LOVER?
JUAN: WELL, MY MOM WAS.
SHE USED TO TAKE ME TO CONCERTS
AND STUFF.
NED: I SEE.
JUAN: WHEN SHE AND MY FATHER
TOOK ME TO ROME, WE SAW
"TURANDOT," "NORMA,"
"DON GIOVANNI," AND ANOTHER
ONE -- UM --
EDWARD: YOU KNOW,
NED, I THINK THIS YOUNG MAN
COULD BE AN EXAMPLE TO YOU.
HE HAS AN ENTIRELY CIVILIZED
ACQUAINTANCE WITH MUSIC.
BUT HE KEEPS EVERYTHING
IN PROPORTION.
HE DOESN'T GO OVERBOARD.
AND HE KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN A PROFESSION
AND A PASTIME.
YOU SEE, JUAN, MY GRANDSON NED
HERE WAS THE UP-AND-COMER
IN THE BUSINESS COMMUNITY.
WORKED HIS WAY ALL THE WAY UP
TO C.E.O. OF THE FAMILY COMPANY.
BUT HE COULDN'T CONCENTRATE.
HE GOT SO DISTRACTED
BY ROCK 'N' ROLL THAT WE HAD
TO VOTE HIM OUT.
CHLOE: AS HOLDER OF LILA'S
PROXY, I THINK I WOULD HAVE
REMEMBERED IF THERE HAD BEEN
A VOTE.
NED: YOU KNOW, I DIDN'T MAKE
HIM PUT IT TO A VOTE, BUT MAYBE
I SHOULD HAVE.
I MEAN, ARE YOU SO SURE THAT
EVERYONE WOULD HAVE GONE ALONG
WITH YOU?
MONICA?
JAX?
SONNY CORINTHOS?
EDWARD: DON'T YOU SULLY
THE AIR WE'RE BREATHING BY USING
THAT NAME HERE.
YOU'RE DAMN RIGHT I DIDN'T CALL
A FULL MEETING, AND IF I HAVE
ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT,
THERE WON'T BE ANOTHER ONE
CALLED UNTIL THAT CRIMINAL HAS
BEEN CONVICTED FOR ONE
OF THE MULTITUDINOUS CRIMES THAT
HE'S COMMITTED AND THROWN
IN JAIL!
CHLOE: YOU ALWAYS MAKE HIM
SOUND LIKE JACK THE RIPPER.
I MET THIS MR. CORINTHOS ONCE,
AND I DON'T SEE HOW HE POSES
A THREAT TO THE HOUSEHOLD.
EDWARD: OF COURSE NOT.
NO WOMAN WOULD UNTIL SHE'S BEEN
SHOT AT OR THROWN INTO A MENTAL
WARD OR --
MONICA: OH, JUST A MINUTE.
YOU SEE, EDWARD SOUNDS WRONG
EVEN WHEN SOMETIMES HE'S RIGHT.
NED CAN TELL YOU THAT SONNY
CORINTHOS POISONS EVERYTHING
HE TOUCHES.
ALAN: WE HAVE TWO SONS.
WHY DO YOU THINK WE ONLY EVER
SEE ONE OF THEM?
EDWARD: JUAN, WHY DON'T
YOU TELL CHLOE WHAT OUR HOODLUM
FRIEND DID FOR YOU, HUH?
EMILY: WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE
TO DISCUSS SOMETHING ELSE?
JUAN: I'M SORRY.
I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT
WORD MEANS.
EDWARD: WHAT, "HOODLUM"?
OH, THAT'S RIGHT.
I FORGOT.
YOUR ENGLISH IS SO GOOD,
SO THOROUGHLY AMERICAN --
JUAN: WE SPOKE SPANISH
AND ENGLISH AT HOME.
EDWARD: OH.
OH, ALL RIGHT.
WELL, NOW, A "HOODLUM" IS --
NED: I AGREE WITH EMILY.
LET'S JUST CHANGE THE SUBJECT.
JUAN: SOMEBODY IN A MOVIE
THAT FIGHTS WITH BROKEN BOTTLES
AND RIDES BIG MOTORCYCLES?
I DON'T KNOW ANYBODY LIKE THAT.
EDWARD: I WAS JUST ASKING
YOU TO TELL MY
GRANDDAUGHTER-IN-LAW WHAT
CORINTHOS HAS DONE FOR YOU.
THAT'S ALL.
JUAN: SURE, YEAH.
HE FOUND ME A PLACE TO LIVE.
HE PAID FOR MY RENT
AND MY MEALS.
HE MADE SURE I WAS THERE EVERY
NIGHT SO THAT I WASN'T OUT
GETTING INTO TROUBLE.
HE CALLED MY FATHER AND OFFERED
TO TAKE CARE OF ME UNTIL
HE COULD MAKE SURE I GOT HOME
SAFELY.
ALAN: NOW HE SHOWS HIS TRUE
COLORS.
CHLOE: I WISH I HADN'T ASKED.
ACTUALLY, I DIDN'T.
JUAN: YOU KNOW, AND HE'S NOT
A HOODLUM, EITHER.
OK, HE'S AN IMPORTANT PERSON
THAT PEOPLE RESPECT.
AND IF HE WAS HERE, YOU WOULDN'T
TALK THIS WAY TO HIS FACE.
ALAN: OH, REALLY?
YOU'RE PROBABLY RKING FOR HIM
RIGHT NOW, AREN'T YOU?
JUAN: NOT YET.
BUT IF HE OFFERS ME A JOB,
I'LL GRAB IT.
EDWARD: THAT'S IT.
I WILL NOT HAVE ANOTHER
CORINTHOS CLONE IN THIS HOUSE
DOING HIS SPYING FOR HIM.
NO, I WON'T.
NED: NOW, I THINK WHAT JUAN
MEANT WAS THAT HE WOULD ACCEPT
A JOB AT SONNY'S COFFEE
BUSINESS, RIGHT?
EDWARD: HA-HA-HA!
WAS THE EVER A MORE OBVIOUS
FRONT THAN THAT PITIFUL COFFEE
IMPORTING ARRANGEMENT?
EMILY: IT'S NOT A FRONT.
JASON WORKS VERY HARD.
EDWARD: THAT PROVES MY POINT!
MONICA: JASON WORKED VERY
HARD TO TURN HIS LIFE AROUND.
HE IS NOT SONNY'S LIEUTENANT.
EDWARD: OH, YOU --
ALAN: REALLY?
THEN WHERE IS HE?
EDWARD: RIGHT.
ALAN: IS HE HERE TRYING
TO REBUILD THE BRIDGES THAT
HE BURNED, OR IS HE LIVING NEXT
DOOR TO SONNY CORINTHOS?
NED: WELL, AT LEAST JASON
ALWAYS MADE A LIVING.
HE WAS NEVER A CORTLAND STREET
JUNKIE.
MONICA: OH, YEAH, AND WHO ARE
YOU TO CRITICIZE?
ALAN: THAT'S FUNNY.
EDWARD: YOU ALWAYS JUMP
ON IT.
MONICA: A MISTAKE -- YOU JUST
BURY IT, THROW IT AWAY --
NED: OH, NOW YOU ATTACK ME?
THIS IS NOT ABOUT ME.
MONICA: DID YOU TELL CHLOE
ABOUT THE LAST FOUR MARRIAGES?
NED: RIGHT.
MONICA: HAVE YOU?
ALAN: EXTRAMARITAL AFFAIRS --
NED: ALL MY WIVES.
CHLOE: THAT'S ENOUGH.
THAT'S ENOUGH!
I THINK WE ARE BEING
UNFORGIVABLY RUDE TO LILA'S
GUEST.
JUAN: HEY, I'M JUST WAITING
FOR A RIDE HOME.
ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW WHAT?
I'LL WALK.
ALAN: REGINALD?
COME AND GIVE THIS BOY A RIDE
HOME NOW.
EMILY: NO.
ALAN: PLEASE.
EMILY: NO.
JUAN: THIS WOULD HAVE NEVER
WORKED OUT ANYWAY.
ALAN: EMILY --
MONICA: YOU CAN WALK HIM
TO THE FRONT DOOR, EMILY,
BUT NO FURTHER.
REGINALD: NOT BAD
FOR YOUR FIRST TIME.
JUAN: I'M SORRY.
EMILY: NO, NO, NO.
IT WASN'T YOUR FAULT.
THEY WERE BEING HORRIBLE.
YOU WERE JUST DEFENDING SONNY.
JUAN: NO, I BLEW IT.
NOW THEY'LL NEVER LET US BE
TOGETHER.
EMILY: NO, THEY WILL.
ALAN: EMILY!
JUAN: WELL, GOOD NIGHT.
THANKS FOR --
I DON'T KNOW --
BEING ON MY SIDE.

JAX: THANK YOU.
JERRY: ME?
I ONLY CALLED YOU TWO OR THREE
TIMES.
BOBBIE: OH, STOP.
YOU CALLED HIM TWO OR THREE
TIMES IN AN HOUR SOME DAYS.
JERRY: ALL RIGHT.
MAYBE HALF A DOZEN.
BUT I DIDN'T ASK YOU TO COME
BACK.
JAX: JERRY, IT'S ALL RIGHT.
IF THERE'S THIS MUCH BUSINESS
TO BE DONE, I'D RATHER BE HERE.
I MEAN, ALEXIS AND I CAN GO BACK
TO ROME ANYTIME, CAN'T WE?
ALEXIS: OH, SURE, SURE.
JERRY: NOW I FEEL TERRIBLE.
I RUINED YOUR HONEYMOON.
ALEXIS: NO.
NO, NOT AT ALL.
I MEAN, WE SAW LOTS OF THINGS.
JAX: YEAH.
ALEXIS: WE SAW THE --
JAX: COLISEUM.
ALEXIS: THE COLISEUM.
RIGHT, YEAH.
JAX: APPIAN WAY.
ALEXIS: YEAH.
JAX: TREVI FOUNTAIN,
OF COURSE.
ALEXIS: YEAH.
BOBBIE: OH.
WAS THAT REALLY AS ROMANTIC
AS THEY SAY?
ALEXIS: WELL, IT WAS
CERTAINLY -- YES.
YES, I WOULD SAY THAT IT WAS,
YES.
JAX: YEAH.
BOBBIE: DID YOU THROW COINS
IN THERE LIKE THEY DO
IN THE MOVIES?
JAX: OF COURSE.
YES!
ALEXIS: YEAH.
JAX: THAT'S HOW I KNOW ---
THAT'S HOW WE KNOW WE'LL BE
BACK.
ALEXIS: RIGHT.
JERRY: ENOUGH OF
THE MONUMENTS.
WHAT DID YOU EAT?
ALEXIS: OH --
JAX: WHAT DID WE EAT?
ALEXIS: WELL, LOTS OF --
JAX: WELL, ITALIAN FOOD,
YOU KNOW?
JERRY: I WASN'T ASKING YOU.
DID YOU GO TO CAFE ENRICO?
JAX: SHE LOVED IT.
ALEXIS: NOT THIS TIME.

STEFAN: NIKOLAS IS BUSY.
KATHERINE: I DON'T MIND
WAITING.
STEFAN: I MIND IF YOU DO.
KATHERINE: DON'T DO THIS,
STEFAN.
THINGS ENDED HORRIBLY BETWEEN
US, BUT IT DOESN'T NEED TO BE
THAT WAY FOR NIKOLAS AND ME.
STEFAN: HORRIBLY OR NOT,
IT HAS ENDED.
YOU'RE NOT WANTED HERE.
KATHERINE: I NEVER WANT
TO LOOK ACROSS A ROOM AND SEE
THE SAME COLDNESS IN HIS EYES
THAT I SEE IN YOURS.
THERE IS NO REASON THAT NIKOLAS
AND I CAN'T BE FRIENDS.
STEFAN: HAVE YOU LOST WHAT
LITTLE GRIP ON REALITY YOU HAD?
YOURS WAS NOT A FAILED ROMANCE.
IT WAS A FAILED MANIPULATION
OF A TRUSTING YOUNG MAN.
NOW NIKOLAS HAS SEEN THROUGH
YOU AND WANTS NOTHING MORE TO DO
WITH YOU.
WHAT IS THERE IN THIS SITUATION
THAT YOU FAIL TO UNDERSTAND?
I WILL BE HAPPY TO EXPLAIN IT
TO YOU.
NIKOLAS: FATHER,
DON'T.
DON'T SPEAK FOR ME.

NIKOLAS: WHY ARE YOU HERE?
KATHERINE: I NEEDED TO SEE
YOU.
NIKOLAS: I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL
ABOUT THE SITUATION,
AND I APPRECIATE WHY.
BUT I PUT MYSELF IN THIS
POSITION WITH KATHERINE.
IT'S MY PLACE TO SEE IT THROUGH.
YOU DON'T NEED TO HANDLE
ANYTHING FOR ME.
STEFAN: I'LL WAIT INSIDE,
THEN.
NIKOLAS: NO.
YOU WERE ABOUT TO LEAVE.
MAYBE IT'S BEST WE JUST PICK UP
THIS CONVERSATION TOMORROW.
STEFAN: TOMORROW, THEN.
NIKOLAS: IS IT THE BABY?
KATHERINE: IS WHAT?
NIKOLAS: IS THE BABY ALL
RIGHT?
KATHERINE: YES.
YES, WE'RE FINE.
I JUST DROPPED BY TO GIVE
YOU THIS --
YOUR LAST PAYCHECK FROM
DECEPTION AND A BONUS --
A MONTH'S SEVERANCE PAY.
YOU DESERVE BOTH.
I'LL WRITE YOU A LETTER
OF RECOMMENDATION, TOO,
IF YOU LIKE.
NIKOLAS: ARE YOU SERIOUS?
I ASKED MY FATHER TO LEAVE
FOR THIS?
KATHERINE: I DIDN'T TELL
YOU TO DO THAT.
NIKOLAS: WE AGREED IT WAS
OVER.
YOU SWORE TO ME YOU WERE GOING
TO LEAVE ME ALONE EXCEPT
TO INFORM ME ABOUT THE BABY.
KATHERINE: THAT'S WHAT I'VE
DONE.
NIKOLAS: THEN WHY ARE
YOU HERE?
KATHERINE: I TOLD YOU.
NIKOLAS: YOU SHOULD HAVE
MAILED THE DAMN CHECK.
KATHERINE: I DIDN'T THINK
THAT YOU WOULD ACCEPT IT UNLESS
I HANDED IT TO YOU PERSONALLY.
NIKOLAS: THAT'S A LIE.
YOU DON'T GIVE A DAMN WHAT I DO
WITH THAT CHECK AND
YOUR SEVERANCE PAY.
WHY IS IT THAT YOU HAVE TO LIE
TO ME EVERY CHANCE YOU GET,
KATHERINE?

JAX: CAFE ENRICO --
THAT WAS THE PLACE WITHOUT
THE SIGN?
YOU KNOW, WITH THE GELATOS?
ALEXIS: OH.
JAX: YEAH.
ALEXIS: YEAH.
OH, THAT'S RIGHT.
YOU KEPT ASKING FOR SOMEONE.
WHAT WAS HIS NAME?
JERRY: THAT WOULD BE ANTONIO.
ALEXIS: RIGHT.
JAX: BUT HE WASN'T THERE,
BUT, YOU KNOW, DINNER WAS
FLAWLESS AS USUAL.
JERRY: ALL RIGHT,
THAT'S ENOUGH.
I'M GOING TO HAVE TO SIT THROUGH
THIS AGAIN WHEN YOU TELL DAD
AND LADY JANE.
JAX: YOU KNOW, YOU GOT
A POINT THERE.
WE SHOULD PROBABLY GET GOING
ANYWAY.
ALEXIS: YEAH, YEAH.
JERRY: ALREADY?
IT'S STILL EARLY.
ALEXIS: WELL, WE ARE
NEWLYWEDS, AFTER ALL.
JAX: THAT'S RIGHT.
I'LL -- OH, IT'S OK.
OH, AND, YOU KNOW, BOBBIE,
IF I MAY GIVE YOU JUST ONE WORD
OF ADVICE -- WHEN, YOU KNOW,
JERRY TAKES YOU ON YOUR
HONEYMOON, DON'T LEAVE
A TELEPHONE NUMBER, OK?
BOBBIE: YOU KNOW, IT GETS
A LITTLE EASIER EVERY TIME I SEE
ALEXIS.
I MEAN, SHE AND I WERE IN-LAWS
FOR A WHILE, BUT IT WAS NEVER
VERY COMFORTABLE BETWEEN US
AFTER THAT.
JERRY: YOU KNOW, JAX JUST
SAID THAT TO -- TO GET BACK
AT ME.
BOBBIE: SAID WHAT?
JERRY: ABOUT --
YOU KNOW.
BOBBIE: OH, YEAH, I KNOW --
ABOUT US BEING ON OUR HONEYMOON.
IT'S OK.
YOU CAN BREATHE.
[BOBBIE LAUGHS]
JERRY: BUT YOU DO KNOW I LOVE
YOU, RIGHT?
BOBBIE: I'M CLEAR ON THAT.

NED: EM --
CHLOE: I AM SO SORRY, EMILY.
EMILY: THAT'S OK.
IT WASN'T YOUR FAULT.
CHLOE: I SHOULD HAVE
APPRECIATED WHAT A VOLATILE
SUBJECT SONNY CORINTHOS IS
IN THIS HOUSEHOLD.
I SHOULD HAVE DROPPED IT.
EMILY: JUAN WAS JUST STICKING
UP FOR SOMEONE WHO'S BEEN GOOD
TO HIM.
I DON'T SEE WHAT'S WRONG
WITH THAT.
NED: I KNOW THIS PROBABLY
DOESN'T HELP VERY MUCH, BUT ALAN
AND MONICA WERE JUST BEING
PROTECTIVE BECAUSE THEY LOVE
YOU SO MUCH.
EMILY: THEY WANT TO PROTECT
ME FROM SOMEONE I LIKE?
THAT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.
THIS TIME IT'S ME.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
I MEAN, I'M THE ONE.
IT'S MY TURN.
LOOK, THERE'S LOTS OF PRETTIER
GIRLS, BETTER GIRLS THAN ME,
WHO HAVE CARS AND HAVE NICE
CLOTHING AND DON'T HAVE PARENTS
TO TELL THEM WHAT THEY CAN
AND CAN'T DO.
BUT JUAN LIKES ME.
ONLY ME.
I DON'T KNOW WHY, BUT HE DOES.
AND HE IS EVERYTHING THAT I EVER
WANTED IN A GUY.
SO WHY CAN'T IT JUST BE SIMPLE?
CHLOE: I DON'T KNOW.
NED: WE ALL WONDER THE SAME
THING SOMETIMES.
CHLOE: BUT I THINK --
I HAVE TO BELIEVE
THAT IF IT'S MEANT TO BE,
YOU'LL FIND YOUR WAY BACK
TO EACH OTHER.

NED: BY THE WAY, YOU MADE
AN EXCELLENT STAND-IN
FOR GRANDMOTHER THIS EVENING.
CHLOE: YOU THINK?
NED: HOWEVER, I SUGGEST
YOU BORROW HER REFEREE'S WHISTLE
NEXT TIME.
CHLOE: I THINK I WILL.
NED: GOOD NIGHT.
YOU TURNING IN, TOO?
CHLOE: I'M GOING TO STAY UP
FOR A LITTLE WHILE.
NED: OK.
CHLOE: OH, YOU CAN LEAVE THAT
OPEN.
THE AIR IS NICE.
I'LL CLOSE IT BEFORE I COME UP.
NED: OK.
BY THE WAY, THE LIGHT SWITCH
IN YOUR ROOM -- SOMETIMES
YOU HAVE TO KIND OF, YOU KNOW --
CHLOE: JIGGLE IT?
NED: THAT'S RIGHT.
CHLOE: GOOD NIGHT.
NED: GOOD NIGHT.
[CHLOE HUMS]
JAX: HOW ABOUT "NAKED
IN A FOUNTAIN"?
CHLOE: YOU JUST MISSED THAT
PART.
JAX: SHOULDN'T LEAVE THE DOOR
OPEN, YOU KNOW.
CHLOE: NO?
JAX: LETS BUGS IN.
CHLOE: OH.
SILLY ME.
JAX: THANKS FOR LETTING ME
HORN IN ON YOUR HONEYMOON.
CHLOE: ANYTIME.
JAX: OH, REALLY?
CHLOE: MM-HMM.
JAX: SO, IS THAT
AN INVITATION TO COME ON ALL
YOUR FUTURE HONEYMOONS?
CHLOE: ONLY IF --
JAX: ONLY IF?
CHLOE: ONLY IF YOU KISS ME.
JAX: GOOD NIGHT.
CHLOE: GOOD NIGHT.

KATHERINE: I UNDERSTAND THAT
IT'S IMPORTANT FOR YOU TO FIND
FAULT WITH ME, TO BELIEVE THAT
I'M A LIAR AND WORSE.
OTHERWISE, HOW COULD YOU THROW
AWAY EVERYTHING WE HAD?
I AM TRYING TO RESPECT
YOUR BOUNDARIES AND TO STILL
MAINTAIN CIVILITY.
I ONLY BROUGHT THIS CHECK OVER
HERE AS A COMMON COURTESY.
OBVIOUSLY, IT WAS A MISTAKE.
NIKOLAS: KEEP IT
FOR THE BABY -- IF THERE
ACTUALLY IS A BABY.
KATHERINE: DOUBT IT
IF YOU LIKE.
IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE IT'S
OBVIOUS TO EVERYONE.
NIKOLAS: WHAT ARE YOU GOING
TO SAY WHEN EY ASK YOU WHO
THE FATHER IS?
KATHERINE: I WON'T HAVE
TO SAY ANYTHING.
THEY'LL MAKE THE NATURAL
ASSUMPTION.
I WON'T HAVE TO LIE ABOUT THAT,
EITHER.

STEFAN: HELLO, MOTHER.
STEFAN: I'M SORRY IF I'VE
SEEMED NEGLECTFUL SINCE
MY RETURN.
AS PROMISED, I PAID A VISIT
TO THE CLINIC IN SWITZERLAND.
THEY'RE MAKING SOME PROGRESS
REFORMULATING THE ANTIDOTE
FOR YOUR CONDITION.
BUT TO BE FRANK,
I DON'T EXPECT TO ADMINISTER IT.
THE REMAINDER OF MY TRIP WAS
SUCCESSFUL.
I HAVE CONSOLIDATED CONTROL
OF MY FATHER'S ESTATE.
THE FAMILY HOLDINGS,
THE FAMILY POWER
ARE BACK IN MY HANDS
WHERE THEY BELONG --
AND WHERE THEY WILL REMAIN
FOR AS LONG AS YOU LIVE.

>> ON THE NEXT "GENERAL
HOSPITAL."

MONICA: I AM CONVINCED THAT
JUAN IS A REALLY BAD INFLUENCE.
I NEED YOUR HELP.

TONY: JUST ME AND LUCAS?
BOBBIE: I'M GOING TO TRUST
YOU WITH THE MOST PRECIOUS THING
I HAVE.

JUAN: LONG TIME NO SEE.
SONNY: OBVIOUSLY YOU'RE
BETTER.
JUAN: NOT THAT IT MATTERS
MUCH TO YOU, DOES IT?
