Provided by Laura

JUAN: YOU KILLED MY MOTHER
BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T LOVE
HER ENOUGH.
JUST TRIED TO THROW HER AWAY,
DUMP HER, AND THAT'S WHY
SHE DIED.
SONNY: TH'S RIGHT.
JUAN: THAT'S RIGHT.
SONNY: WHAT DO YOU WANT ME
TO SAY?
JUAN: HOW ABOUT YOU DIDN'T
MEAN IT OR THAT YOU REALLY DID
LOVE HERR -- AND YOU'RE SORRY
NOW?
OR THAT IT WAS AN ACCIDENT,
IT WASN'T YOUR FAULT, YOU'RE NOT
A KILLER?
SONNY: YOU WANT TO BE A MAN?
THEN BE A MAN.
ARE YOU GOING TO TELL ME THAT
THE MAN WHO PUT YOUR MOTHER
IN HER GRAVE COULD STAND HERE
AND SAY, "I DIDN'T MEAN IT,"
AND THAT WOULD CLEAR THE SLATE
FOR YOU?
JUAN: NO.
SONNY: GOOD.
BECAUSE I'M JUST TELLING
YOU WHAT HAPPENED TO LILY.
I'M NOT GOINTO INSULT
YOU BY MAKING EXCUSES.
I'M NOT GOING TO INSULT
HER BY CRYING TOO LATE TEARS
ON THE GROUND WHERE SHE LIES.
THE ONLY REASON I'M TELLING
YOU AT ALL IS BECAUSE I DON'T
WANT YOU ANYWHERE NEAR ME.
AND MAYBE NOW YOU UNDERSTAND
WHY.

MAN: I HAVE TO TELL YOU,
TIME WAS AT A PREMIUM.
EDWARD: MY GOOD MAN,
DON'T UNDERESTIMATE ME.
MAN: OK, LOOK, LET'S BACK UP.
EDWARD: NO, NO.
LOOK, I KNOW YOUR TYPE.
AND IF YOU THINK IN YOUR WILDEST
DREAMS THAT I AM GOING TO PAY
YOU ONE CENT MORE THAN
WE AGREED ON --
MAN: DID I MENTION MONEY?
LOOK, I'M TRYING TO TELL
YOU THAT I ONLY GOT COVERAGE
DOWNSTAIRS.
I GOT EXCELLENT COVERAGE
OF THE LIVING ROOM AREA.
EDWARD: OH, CONFOUND
YOUR WHOLE PRIVATE-EYE JARGON.
DID YOU OR DID YOU NOT ESTABLISH
VIDEO SURVEILLANCE IN
THE GATEHOUSE?
MAN: BUT DOWNSTAIRS ONLY.
EDWARD: OH. ALL RIGHT.
I WANT TO SEE WHATEVER YOU GET
JUST AS SOON AS YOU GET IT.
MAN: NO PROBLEM.
TAPING UNIT'S IN MY VAN.
IT'S RECORDING OFF THE FEED
AS WE SPEAK.
SO AS SOON AS ANYTHING
EVIDENTIARY COMES UP,
I'LL EDIT IT DOWN.
I'LL GET YOU A COPY.
EDWARD: NO, NO, NO, NO.
NO COPIES.
I'M ONTO YOUR TRICKS.
MAN: THIS PARTICULAR TRICK IS
COVERAGE AGAINST LOSS OR DAMAGE
TO THE ORIGINAL.
EDWARD: YOU SEE, THIS IS
A HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL MATTER
INVOLVING VERY SENSITIVE FAMILY
ISSUES, AND NO ONE IS GOING
TO SEE ANY TAPE OF NED
AND HIS WIFE EXCEPT ME.
IS THAT UNDERSTOOD, YOU SHYSTER?
MAN: IT'S YOUR DIME, PAL.
EDWARD: ALL RIGHT,
OFF WITH YOU, THEN.
GO ON.
EDWARD: OH.
MY DEAR, I THOUGHT YOU LEFT
IN A HUFF.
LILA: OH, I MISS A LOT THAT
WAY.
WHAT ARE YOU UP TO NOW, EDWARD?
EDWARD: "UP TO"?
WHAT, AM I SKULKING AROUND?
LOOK, IF I CAN'T STAND IN MY OWN
DEN ENJOYING THE NIGHT AIR
WITHOUT AROUSING SUSPICION,
THEN I MIGHT JUST AS WELL TAKE
MYSELF OFF TO BED, WHICH IS WHAT
I'M GOING TO DO.
GOOD NIGHT.

NED: DON'T MOVE.
ALEXIS: SNAKE?
SNIPER ON THE ROOF?
NED: UH-UH.
ALEXIS: AM I UNDER ARREST?
NED: I AM JUST TAKING
A MENTAL PICTURE FOR FUTURE
REFERENCE.
YOU SEE, THIS IS HOW I WANT
TO SEE MY FRONT ENTRANCE EVERY
TIME I COME HOME --
WITH YOU RIGHT HERE IN FRONT.
ALEXIS: YOU COULD HAVE A LAWN
ORNAMENT MADE OF ME.
NED: SAY "CHEESE."
ALEXIS: CHEESE.
NED: NOW COME TO PAPA.
ALEXIS: DO YOU REALIZE
WE HAVE ONE LONG, GLORIOUS
EVENING TOGETHER?
READY OR NOT, HERE I COME.

KATHERINE: DR. KALE SENT ME
HOME WITH A LIST OF GUIDELINES
TO FOLLOW, AND -- WELL,
I'VE NEVER BEEN PREGNANT BEFORE,
AND EVEN IF I HAD -- WELL,
IT SAYS HERE TO AVOID EXERTION,
AND I DON'T KNOW IF THAT MEANS
WALKING FIVE MILES OR WALKING
ACROSS THE ROOM.
ANYWAY, I FEEL SILLY ASKING
THESE QUESTIONS, BUT HE JUST
IMPLANTED THE FERTILIZED EGG
TODAY AND, WELL, I DON'T WANT
TO TAKE ANY CHANCES, YOU KNOW.

BARTENDER: WHAT CAN I GET
YOU?
ELIZABETH: IS JAKE AROUND?
SHE KNOWS WHAT I LIKE.
I'M NOT MUCH OF A DRINKER.
BARTENDER: OH, NO, NO, NO.
JAKE'S OFF TONIGHT.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT COLOR DRINK
SHE FIXED YOU?
NO?
DID IT HAVE THE NAME COLLINS
IN IT?
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW,
WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET ME A CLUB
SODA WHILE I THINK ABOUT IT.
BARTENDER: GOT IT.
MAN: ONE OF THOSE GIRLY
DRINKS -- SWEET AND PRETTY,
LIKE YOU, WITH AN ORANGE SLICE
AND A COUPLE CHERRIES, WENT DOWN
EASY, JUST A LITTLE PUCKER
AT THE END?
ELIZABETH: I'LL HAVE WHAT
HE'S HAVING.
MIGHT AS WELL LIVE DANGEROUSLY.

ALEXIS: PERHAPS WE SHOULD GO
INSIDE AND NOT MAKE A SPECTACLE
OF OURSELVES.
NED: NO, NO, NO.
IT'S TOO DARK TO BE A SPECTACLE.
ALEXIS: ANYONE CAN WALK
IN AT ANY MOMENT -- AS EXCITING
AS THAT IS.
NED: WE'LL SAY YOU SAW
A RATTLESNAKE.
ALEXIS: OH, GOOD IDEA.
JAX: UNHAND MY WIFE.
NED: WHO INVITED YOU?
JAX: NOW, THE QUESTION IS,
WHO INVITED MY PARENTS?
NOT THAT THEY EVER WAI
FOR AN INVITATION.
ALEXIS: YOUR PARENTS ARE
HERE?
JAX: YEAH, ANY MINUTE NOW.
SORRY.
JERRY JUST TOLD ME,
LIKE, AN HOUR AGO.
I KNOW YOU TWO HAD PLANS.
NED: "HAVE" -- PRESENT TENSE.
JAX: THEY'RE GOING TO EXPECT
TO SEE YOU, ALEXIS.
NED: SO YOU JUST TELL THEM
THAT SHE'S OUT OF TOWN.
ALEXIS: WELL, HE CAN'T DO
THAT.
JAX: YEAH.
NED: WHY THE HELL NOT?
ALEXIS: WELL, BECAUSE
IT'S JUST TOO WOBBLY.
I MEAN, WHAT IF SOMEBODY SAW ME
IN MY CAR OR SAW ME LEAVE
THE HOTEL WITHOUT MY LUGGAGE?
AND I DON'T WANT HIS PARENTS
TO THINK THAT I WOULD LIE
TO HIM.
NED: OK, FINE.
SO JUST TELL THEM THAT SHE'S OUT
LATE FOR A DEPOSITION
OR SOMETHING.
ALEXIS: OH, SEE, HE CAN'T DO
THAT, EITHER.
NED: WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON?
ALEXIS: WELL, YOU SEE,
I WOULDN'T SAY THAT I WAS
WORKING BECAUSE, I MEAN,
I WOULDN'T BE.
NED: SURE, YOU WOULD.
YOU WORK LATE ALL THE TIME.
ALEXIS: WELL, BUT
IF MY BELOVED HUSBAND'S FAMILY
WERE COMING IN FROM ALASKA,
I WOULD SHUFFLE THINGS
AND CANCEL THINGS D DO
WHATEVER I WOULD TO BE THERE.
I JUST WOULD.
NED: OK.
I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE TO BE
HIS WIFE, BUT DO YOU HAVE TO BE
SUCH A GOOD WIFE?
I MEAN, MOST GUYS IN REAL
MARRIAGES DON'T HAVE IT AS GOOD
AS HE DOES.
JAX: WOULD YOU CUT THE WOMAN
SOME SLACK BEFORE I REMIND
YOU WHOSE BRAINSTORM THIS WHOLE
MESS WAS IN THE FIRST PLACE?
LOOK, I'LL DISPATCH MY PARENTS
TO BEDS SOON AS I CAN, OK?
I'LL START HINTING THAT DAD
LOOKS TIRED AND PALE,
AND MY MOTHER WILL DO THE REST.
AND YOU GUYS CAN HAVE THE REST
OF THE EVENING, MINUS A FEW
MEASLY HOURS.
ALEXIS: CAN YOU LIVE
WITH THAT?
NED: I'M STARTING
WITHOUT YOU.
ALEXIS: ALL RIGHTY, THEN.
I'LL GET THERE AS SOON AS I CAN.
NED: I KNOW, I KNOW --
SAFETY FIRST.
JAX: OH, SURE.
SHOOT THE MESSENGER.
ALEXIS: YOU'RE LOOKING
AT A WOMAN WHO SWORE SHE WOULD
NEVER GET MARRIED AND GIVE UP
HER INDEPENDENCE.
JAX: AND YOU'RE LOOKING
AT A MAN WHO --
WELL, A YEAR AGO WANTED NOTHING
MORE THAN TO BE MARRIED AND GIVE
UP SOME OF HIS INDEPENDENCE.
ALEXIS: SO NEITHER OF US ARE
GETTING WHAT WE WANT, HUH?
JAX: NO.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
YOU AND THIS MAKE-BELIEVE
MARRIAGE OF OURS IS ACTUALLY
PERFECT FOR ME.
YEAH, BECAUSE IF LIFE WERE
A BANQUET, THEN YOU WOULD BE
THE SHERBET, AND YOU'RE LETTING
ME CLEANSE MY PALATE UNTIL
THE NEXT BIG -- WELL,
WHATEVER IT'S GOING TO BE.
YOU KNOW?
ALEXIS: IT'S NICE TO SEE THAT
YOU'RE FALLING IN LOVE AGAIN.
JAX: SAYS WHO?
ALEXIS: THERE'S JUST CERTAIN
THINGS A WIFE KNOWS,
HUSBAND DEAR.
JAX: COME ON.
NED: TO THE HAPPY COUPLE,
WHICH AT THE MOMENT DOESN'T SEEM
TO INCLUDE ME.
TO JAX'S PARENTS AND
THEIR DELICATE FEELINGS.
HEAVEN FORBID THEIR SON SHOULD
MARRY BENEATH HIM.

JUAN: SHE WAS
A SCHOOLTEACHER, HUH?
SONNY: YEAH.
JUAN: SHE LIKED LITTLE KIDS
AND LITTLE KIDS LIKED HER?
SONNY: YEAH.
JUAN: SHE LIKED ME?
SHE WOULD HAVE RAISED ME
AND BEEN MY MOTHER IF SHE COULD.
IF SHE WAS HERE, ALIVE AND NOT
IN THE GROUND, SHE'D BE GLAD
THAT I CAME TO HER.
SONNY: THAT'S RIGHT.
JUAN: SO, YOU WERE
HER HUSBAND.
AND YOU DON'T LIKE TO LOOK
AT MY FACE BECAUSE IT REMINDS
YOU OF HER AND WHAT YOU DID.
SONNY: SOMETIMES.
SOMETIMES IT DOES.
JUAN: DID YOU EVER --
EVER LOVE MY MOTHER AT ALL?
THAT DAY IN THE PARK WHEN
YOU CAME WITH HER?
I THOUGHT YOU DID FROM THE WAY
YOU LOOKED AT HER.
SONNY: I LOVED YOUR MOTHER.
WAS IT ENOUGH?
NO.
THERE WAS ONE DAY -- ONE DAY
WHEN SHE KNEW IT WAS TRUE,
AND SO DID I.
I KNOW NO WAY OF MAKING THAT UP
TO HER.
DO YOU?
EXCEPT MAYBE TO PROMISE THAT
YOU WON'T FOLLOW IN
HER FOOTSTEPS --
THAT THE TIME SHE SHOULD HAVE
HAD, THE LIFE SHE SHOULD
HAVE HAD
HER SON WILL HAVE.
THAT'S WHY I DON'T WANT
YOU TO WORK FOR ME, I DON'T WANT
YOU TO BE MY FRIEND,
I DON'T WANT YOU TO SIT
AT MY TABLE.
THAT MUCH I OWE HER.
JUAN: ARE YOU DONE?
SONNY: YEAH.
JUAN: THEN CAN I GO?
SONNY: WHERE DO YOU WANT ME
TO DROP YOU OFF?
JUAN.

NED: NO, I HAVEN'T BEEN
EVICTED.
CHLOE: SOMETHING'S WRONG,
AND IT'S WORSE THAN A SPRAINED
ANKLE.
NED: WE'RE ABOUT TO MAKE
OUR VERY FIRST HOME VIDEO.
CHLOE: WHAT THRESHOLD AM
I ABOUT TO GET CARRIED OVER?
NED: HOW ABOUT THE THRESHOLD
OF PASSION?
AS SOON AS WE WALK THROUGH THAT
DOOR, THERE'S GOING TO BE
A HIDDEN VIDEO CAMERA TRAINED
ON US.
CHLOE: GERTRUDE?
NED: OR GRANDFATHER.
OR BOTH.
CHLOE: HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN
THERE?
NED: WELL, MY GUESS -- THAT
IT'S VERY RECENT, OTHERWISE WE'D
ALREADY BE SUNK.
IT WAS DUMB LUCK THAT I EVEN
SPOTTED IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.
A CHAMPAGNE CORK RICOCHETED OFF
A LIGHT FIXTURE, AND THERE IT
WAS.
CHLOE: WHAT ROOM?
NED: ONLY THE LIVING ROOM.
BELIEVE ME, I LOOKED THROUGH ALL
THE OTHERS AND FOUND NOTHING.
CHLOE: WELL, THAT'S A RELIEF.
AT LEAST IT'S NOT DISGUSTING
AND PORNOGRAPHIC.
IT'S JUST TACKY AND
REPREHENSIBLE.
NED: TRUE, IT'S CRUDE,
BUT ALSO VERY SMART.
I'M KIND OF A CONNOISSEUR
OF SLEEZY TACTICS THAT WORK.
AND BELIEVE ME, THIS WOULD HAVE
IF NOT FOR AN ERRANT CHAMPAGNE
CORK.
CHLOE: OK, SO I SUPPOSE
IF WE WERE TO REMOVE IT OR PAINT
THE LENS BLACK, THEY WOULD JUST
TRY AGAIN.
NED: YEAH, AND THE NEXT TIME
I MAY NOT SPOT IT.
SO I THINK THAT THIS IS A VERY
GOOD OPPORTUNITY.
CHLOE: GUERRILLA THEATER.
NED: THAT'S RIGHT.
CHLOE: YOU AND I COULD GO IN,
GET AS CONVINCINGLY ROMANTIC --
TO A POINT.
NED: TO A POINT.
AND WATCH WHAT YOU SAY.
YOU NEVER KNOW -- THE ROOM MAY
BE WIRED FOR SOUND.
AND THEN AFTER WE PUT,
YOU KNOW, ON A GOOD SHOW,
I'LL SUGGEST THAT WE MOVE
OUR FESTIVITIES OVER TO OUR NEW
SUITE AT THE PORT CHARLES HOTEL.
ANY QUESTIONS?
CHLOE: ISN'T IT ILLEGAL
TO BUG SOMEBODY'S HOUSE?
CAN'T WE JUST HAVE THEM
ARRESTED?
NED: NO.
TRUST ME, THIS IS BETTER.
NOW, HOW'S MY BREATH?
I DON'T WANT THIS TO BE
UNPLEASANT FOR YOU.
CHLOE: IT'S FINE.
WHAT KIND OF LOVE LIFE DO
YOU THINK WE HAVE,
HYPOTHETICALLY SPEAKING,
AS A MARRIED COUPLE?
NED: HMM.
SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES
OF WILD, ATHLETIC ABANDON.
CHLOE: OK.
WHOO.
NED: WHOA!
[CHLOE LAUGHS]
CHLOE: OH.
NED.

NIKOLAS: HEY.
EMILY: HELLO!
HOW ARE YOU?
NIKOLAS: GOOD. GOOD.
HOW ARE YOU?
IS ELIZABETH AROUND?
EMILY: NO.
I HAVEN'T SEEN HER.
SHE'S PROBABLY AT HOME.
NIKOLAS: HMM. I CALLED.
DO ME A FAVOR -- IF SHE SHOWS
UP, WILL YOU LET HER KNOW
I STOPPED BY?
EMILY: YEAH, ABSOLUTELY.
NIKOLAS: THANKS.
EMILY: SEE YOU.
STEFAN: GOOD EVENING.
NIKOLAS: WHAT HAPPENED?
STEFAN: "HAPPENED"?
NIKOLAS: YOU HEARD
FROM LAURA?
STEFAN: YES.
SHE ASKED ABOUT YOU, OF COURSE.
NIKOLAS: AND?
STEFAN: AND SHE SENDS
HER LOVE.
NIKOLAS: NO, I MEAN, WHAT ARE
YOU DOING HERE?
IT'S NOT OFTEN THAT YOU COME
TO A PLACE LIKE KELLY'S
WITHOUT A REASON.
STEFAN: TRUE.
I WAS HOPING TO SEE MY SON.

MAN: PHOTOGRAPHER.
I DON'T MEET MANY OF THOSE.
ELIZABETH: IT'S A LIVING.
MAN: THAT'S GREAT.
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN SAY THAT
AT YOUR AGE?
MOST KIDS RIGHT OUT
OF COLLEGE -- EXCUSE ME.
YOU'RE NOT A KID, OBVIOUSLY.
YOU DIDN'T MENTION COLLEGE,
BUT, YOU KNOW, I KIND
OF ASSUMED --
ELIZABETH: I GRADUATED LAST
SUMMER.
I'M MAKING IT SOUND LIKE IT ALL
CAME VERY EASILY, BUT IT DIDN'T.
AS A MATTER OF FACT,
PHOTOGRAPHY WASN'T WHAT I HAD
IN MIND.
MAN: WHAT WAS?
ELIZABETH: WELL, I MAJORED
IN ART.
MAN: YOU MEAN DRAWING
AND PAINTING?
ELIZABETH: EXACTLY.
BUT HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN PAY
THE RENT DOING THAT?
I HAD TO GET SERIOUS.
MAN: THAT HAPPENS TO THE BEST
OF US.
SO, WHAT DO YOU TAKE
PICTURES OF?
ELIZABETH: DEPENDS
ON THE ASSIGNMENT.
BUILDINGS, PEOPLE.
MAN: WHAT IF YOUR ASSIGNMENT
WAS ME?
ELIZABETH: WELL, I'D NEED
TO SEE YOU IN THE LIGHT.
MAN: THAT COULD BE ARRANGED.
ELIZABETH: AND I'D WANT
TO SEE YOU IN MOTION.
MAN: SO COULD THAT.
IN MY COUNTRY, THIS MEANS "WANT
TO DANCE?"
ELIZABETH: AND IN MY COUNTRY,
THIS MEANS "NO, THANKS."
MAN: COME ON.
I BOUGHT YOU A DRINK.
IT'S THE LEAST YOU CAN DO.
ELIZABETH: THE PRICE
OF A DRINK ENTITLES YOU EXACTLY
NOTHING FROM ME.
MAN: ISN'T THIS NICER?

ELIZABETH: THAT WAS A STUPID
THING TO D
MAN: YOU KNOW, I'M NOT
MINDING IT.
HEY!
ELIZABETH: TAKE YOUR HAND OFF
OF ME.
BARTENDER: HEY, PHIL,
TAKE YOUR PROBLEMS WITH
THE GIRLFRIEND OUTSIDE,
WILL YOU?
PHIL: NO PROBLEM.
ELIZABETH: I'M NOT --
PHIL: YOU HEARD THE MAN.
ELIZABETH: I'M NOT GOING
ANYWHERE WITH YOU.
PHIL: DID I MENTION I KIND
OF LIKE IT WHEN THEY FIGHT ME
A LITTLE?
ELIZABETH: YOU THINK
I'M PLAYING?
TRY IT AGAIN.
PHIL: A LITTLE FIGHT?
I'M USED TO A LITTLE FIGHTING.
OW!
HEY -- I DIDN'T KNOW SHE WAS
YOURS, ALL RIGHT?
I DON'T WANT ANY TROUBLE.
JASON: GET IN YOUR CAR,
YOU GO HOME, AND DON'T LET ME
FIND OUT YOU CAME WITHIN 10 FEET
OF HER AGAIN, OK?
PHIL: OK.
ELIZABETH: WHAT'S
YOUR PROBLEM?
IF I NEEDED HELP, I WOULD HAVE
ASKED FOR IT.
SO WHY DON'T YOU MIND YOUR OWN
DAMN BUSINESS.

STEFAN: WELL, I SUPPOSE WE'LL
BE REQUIRED TO ORDER SOMETHING.
WHY DON'T YOU ORDER FOR ME?
YOU KNOW THE MENU.
I DON'T.
NIKOLAS: OK.
I'D HAVE TO SAY ANYTHING THAT
THEY CALL "STUFFED"
OR "SMOTHERED" IS OUT, RIGHT?
STEFAN: GOOD START.
NIKOLAS: A HEADY
RESPONSIBILITY.
YOU SO SELDOM CALL ON ME
FOR HELP.
STEFAN: NOT TRUE.
WHY DO YOU THINK I SOUGHT
YOU OUT TODAY?
NIKOLAS: I THOUGHT I ASKED.
STEFAN: HELENA'S INCAPACITY,
WHILE IT MAY CAUSE NEITHER OF US
TO SHED A TEAR, HAS BROUGHT SOME
PROBLEMS TO LIGHT.
NIKOLAS: DOES THIS HAVE TO DO
WITH THE FAMILY HOLDINGS?
STEFAN: YES.
IN THE SHORT TIME YOUR
GRANDMOTHER WAS IN CONTROL,
SHE NOT ONLY MADE IMPRUDENT
DECISIONS, SHE SIPHONED FUNDS
INTO VARIOUS PERSONALLY HELD
ACCOUNTS, CONCEALED THEM
IN FOREIGN BANKS IN THE NAMES
OF DUMMY CORPORATIONS.
I WON'T BORE YOU WITH
THE DETAILS, BUT SUFFICE IT
TO SAY THERE IS MORE TO SORT OUT
THAN I CAN HANDLE ON MY OWN.
I NEED AN ASSISTANT,
ONE WITH EXPERIENCE MANAGING
A LARGE ESTATE, AND ONE
WITH A PERSONAL STAKE
IN PRESERVING THE FORTUNE WOULD
BE MOST WELCOME -- WHICH
NATURALLY NARROWS THE LIST.
NIKOLAS: AND HOW MANY NAMES
ARE ON IT BESIDES MINE?
STEFAN: WILL YOU ACCEPT
THE JOB?

NED: CHLOE?
CHLOE: YES?
NED: I HAD NO IDEA.
CHLOE: OF WHAT, DARLING?
NED: THAT I WOULD
EVER FIND SOMEONE --
THAT COULD TRULY ACCEPT ME
FOR WHO I AM AND NOT JUST
AN IMAGE OF WHAT I'M TRYING
TO PROJECT.
I NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE
POSSIBLE.
CHLOE: WHAT WOULD?
NED: TO BE LOVED
AND UNDERSTOOD
BY THE SAME PERSON.
I THOUGHT THAT I'D ALWAYS
HAVE TO CHOOSE
AND THAT
IF IT WAS LOVE THAT I CHOSE
THAT I'D ALWAYS STAY A STRANGER.
CHLOE: WHENEVER I THOUGHT
OF THE MAN THAT I WOULD SOMEDAY
FALL IN LOVE WITH, I --
AND WOULD LOVE ME, I COULDN'T
GET A CLEAR THOUGHT IN MY HEAD.
I FIRMLY BELIEVED HE EXISTED.
I JUST COULDN'T CONCEIVE OF SUCH
A PERSON.
NED: WHY NOT?
CHLOE: HOW WAS I SUPPOSED
TO KNOW HE'D BE LIKE
MY LONOST TWIN, LIKE
AN EXTENSION OF MYSELF THAT
I NEVER REALIZED WAS MISSING,
THAT HE'D HAVE MY SENSE OF HUMOR
AND HE'D ALWAYS KNOW WHEN
TO SHOW UP WHEN I NEEDED HIM,
USUALLY WITH A PAIR OF MY SHOES
IN HIS HAND?
NED: I suggest we take this
show on the road.
CHLOE: OOH.
LET'S GO UPSTAIRS.
IT'S MY TURN TO UNDRESS YOU.
NED: ACTUALLY, I HAVE
A BETTER IDEA.
CHLOE: HMM?
NED: WELL, NOT THAT IT'S
BETTER THAN THE LAST SUGGESTION,
BUT OUR HOTEL SUITE IS ALL
READY.
AND I THINK IT'S TIME
THAT IT IS CHRISTENED.
CHLOE: PERFECT.
I WILL SEND SALLY FOR SOME
THINGS IN THE MORNING.
DON'T EVEN PACK.
OH -- OH!
NED: GOT YOU.
NED: WOW.
CHLOE: THAT WASN'T SO BAD.
NED: I HOPE I DIDN'T DO
ANYTHING --
CHLOE: NO, NO.
NED: OR TOUCH ANYTHING --
CHLOE: NO, NO.
YOU WERE A PERFECT PRETEND
HUSBAND.
AND IF ANYONE EVER WONDERS WHAT
ALEXIS SEES IN YOU, YOU JUST
SEND THEM TO ME.

JASON: HEY, LOOK, YOU CAN GET
HANDLED BY ANYBODY YOU WANT --
ELIZABETH: DAMN STRAIGHT
I CAN.
JASON: BUT JAKE ONLY LETS
YOU AND EMILY IN HERE
ON MY SAY-SO.
ELIZABETH: DO YOU SEE JAKE
AROUND?
JASON: ON THE CONDITION
THAT YOU WOULDN'T MAKE TROUBLE.
THAT WAS THE AGREEMENT.
ELIZABETH: TELL YOU WHAT --
I'LL GO SOMEPLACE ELSE AND MAKE
TROUBLE.
HOW'S THAT?
JASON: YOU SURE IT'S WHAT
YOU WANT?
BECAUSE LOOKING THE WAY YOU DO,
TROUBLE WILL COME EASY.
ELIZABETH: MAYBE I AM SURE.
MAYBE HAVING SOMEONE TO FIGHT
RIGHT NOW SOUNDS LIKE A RELIEF.
NOTHING ELSE SEEMS TO WORK.
NOT FRIENDS, NOT PAINTING,
NOT TIME.
WHAT?
JASON: I TRIED THAT ONCE.
ELIZABETH: TRIED WHAT?
JASON: I TRIED TO FIX WHAT
HURT BY FINDING SOMETHING THAT
HURT WORSE.
NOW, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE
ME, BUT IT DOESN'T WORK.
ELIZABETH: HOW WOULD
YOU KNOW?
YOU NEVER HAD ONE GOOD THING
IN YOUR LIFE AND YOU LOST IT.
YOU NEVER HAD SOMEONE COME ALONG
WHO MADE YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT
THE POINT WAS --
THE POINT OF BEING ALIVE
AT ALL --
AND THEN PROVED IT BY BEING GONE
AND LEAVING YOU WITH NOTHING.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT NOTHING FEELS
LIKE?
JASON: YEAH.
THAT'S PRETTY MUCH WHERE I LIVE.

REGINALD: WHAT'D I DO WRONG?
YOU SOUNDED SO UNHAPPY OVER
THE INTERCOM.
LILA: OH, NOT WITH YOU, DEAR.
REGINALD: WHAT'S THIS?
LILA: A DUBIOUS-LOOKING
GENTLEMAN DROPPED IT OFF JUST
NOW FOR EDWARD.
HE'S BEEN A LITTLE OVERZEALOUS
LATELY, I'M AFRAID.
REGINALD: YOU MIGHT CALL IT
THAT.
I THINK IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO
WITH NED AND CHLOE.
IT'S JUST A GUESS.
LILA: MY GUESS, TOO.
BUT I THINK THIS VIDEOTAPE
SHOULD GO DIRECTLY TO NED.
REGINALD: BE MY PLEASURE.

EMILY: HEY.
I THOUGHT YOU WERE WITH SONNY.
I MEAN, I THOUGHT HE WAS TAKING
YOU SOMEWHERE.
JUAN: HE DID.
I JUST DIDN'T WANT TO STAY
THERE.
WELL, I DIDN'T WANT TO STAY
THERE WITH HIM.
I DON'T WANT TO BE ANYPLACE
WITH HIM.
EMILY: WHAT HAPPENED?
JUAN: I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE
MY MOTHER WAS BURIED.
DID YOU?
EMILY: I KNEW THAT IT WAS
AROUND HERE.
I MEAN, I KNEW THAT THE FUNERAL
WAS AROUND HERE.
JUAN: HE TOOK ME THERE.
EMILY: OH.
WHAT WAS THAT LIKE?
JUAN: IT WAS A NICE PLACE.
YOU KNOW, IT FELT LIKE HER.
I DIDN'T KNOW HER THAT MUCH,
BUT I REMEMBER HOW IT FELT TO BE
AROUND HER, AND THAT'S HOW
IT FELT -- AT FIRST.
EMILY: YOU AND SONNY GOT
IN A FIGHT?
JUAN: I DON'T KNOW IF WE DID
OR NOT.
THEN HE TOLD ME THINGS.
HE TOLD ME THE TRUTH ABOUT HOW
HE MARRIED HER, HOW SHE DIED,
HOW IT WAS HIS FAULT.
EMILY: HE SAID THAT?
JUAN: HE TOLD ME HE'S NOT
MY FATHER.
I GUESS I CAN BE GLAD ABOUT
THAT.

SONNY: OOH.
HANNAH: DO YOU MIND THAT
I WAITED?
SONNY: NO, NO, NO. NO.
HANNAH: DO YOU MIND THAT
I WAITED HERE?
SONNY: I LOVE SEEING
YOU IN MY BEDROOM.
MOST OF THE TIME I DON'T WANT
TO LET YOU OUT.
OH.
BESIDES, YOU'RE THE ONLY PERSON
I'D WANT TO BE WITH RIGHT NOW.
WHY IS IT SUCH HARD WORK
TAKING ONE KID'S ILLUSIONS
AND CRUSHING THEM ONE BY ONE?
HANNAH: HOW DID IT GO?
SONNY: WITH JUAN?
GREAT.
I FELT A REAL SENSE
OF ACCOMPLISHMENT.
HANNAH: BECAUSE?
SONNY: BECAUSE HE SEES ME
NOW, YOU KNOW -- ME,
NOT A FIGMENT OF HIS
IMAGINATION.
I MADE SURE OF THAT.
HANNAH: MADE SURE HOW?
SONNY: I SAW THE HERO WORSHIP
IN HIS EYES GO DEAD FINALLY.
HANNAH: THAT MADE YOU FEEL
GOOD?
SONNY: WELL, YOU KNOW.
HANNAH: I DIDN'T THINK SO.
SONNY: BUT IT'S FOR THE BEST,
YOU KNOW?
HE DOESN'T SEE IT THAT WAY,
BUT I DO, YOU KNOW?
AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED,
IT WAS A GOOD NIGHT'S WORK.
UNLESS --
HANNAH: UNLESS?
SONNY: SOMETIMES YOU PUT
A THING IN MOTION, IT PICKS UP
SPEED, IT GE OUT OF CONTROL.
YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?
THE NEXT THING YOU KNOW,
THERE'S NOTHING LEFT
BUT SCORCHED EARTH.
WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY IS --
COME HERE, COME HERE, COME HERE.
YOU SEE ME WITH A CERTAIN LIGHT
IN YOUR EYES.
WHY, I DON'T KNOW.
BUT THAT'S THE KIND OF LIGHT
I DON'T WANT TO PUT OUT THERE.
BUT MAYBE I WILL BECAUSE,
YOU KNOW --
I DON'T KNOW.
HANNAH: YOU DON'T HAVE
TO WORRY ABOUT THAT EVER
HAPPENING.
SONNY: AH,
YOU'RE A SWEETHEART.

ALEXIS: THANKS AND PRAISE
TO THE CAPRICIOUSNESS
OF COMMERCIAL AIRLINES.
JAX'S PARENTS' FLIGHT
WAS CANCELED.
THEY'RE COMING IN TOMORROW
MORNING, SO WE HAVE THE WHOLE
NIGHT AHEAD OF US, RIGHT?
REGINALD: HELLO.
I COME IN PEACE, NOT TO SPY
OR REPORT BACK TO ANYONE ABOUT
WHAT PERSON OR PERSONS MAY
OR MAY NOT BE ON THE PREMISES.
ALEXIS: I SEE.
MUCH APPRECIATED.
IT'S SO RARE THESE DAYS.
REGINALD: YEAH.
MRS. QUARTERMAINE WANTED ME
TO GIVE THIS TO NED.
ALEXIS: LILA?
REGINALD: YEAH.
WE THINK IT PROBABLY HAS
SOMETHING TO DO WITH
THE AFOREMENTIONED ACTIVITIES
THAT I AM NOT HERE TO
PARTAKE IN.
ALEXIS: AHA.
I'LL SEE THAT NED GETS IT.
REGINALD: OK.
GOOD NIGHT.
ALEXIS: GOOD NIGHT.
WELL, IT'S MY FAMILY, TOO.
DO, DO, DO, DO, DO
OK.

ELIZABETH: PEOPLE SAID
HE WOULD ALWAYS BE WITH ME --
PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME,
PEOPLE WHO MEAN WELL --
THAT HE WOULD ALWAYS
LIVE IN MY HEART,
IN MY MEMORIES --
SOME VAGUE LOCATION THAT NO ONE
CAN POINT TO.
THOSE ARE JUST THINGS PEOPLE
SAY.
I KNOW THAT NOW, BUT I DIDN'T
THEN.
AND IT PUT THIS IDEA IN MY HEAD
THAT LOSING LUCKY SHOULD BE
BEAUTIFUL AND UPLIFTING
OR I WASN'T DOING IT RIGHT.
I DON'T FEEL HIS PRESENCE.
I FEEL THAT HE'S GONE
AND THAT WHERE HE USED TO BE
THERE'S NOTHING.
THE SUBWAY TOKEN,
SOME DRESSES I WORE,
A SHIRT OF HIS THAT DOESN'T EVEN
SMELL LIKE HIM ANYMORE --
THOSE USED TO BE THE MOST
IMPORTANT THINGS IN THE WORLD
TO ME.
AND NOW IT'S LIKE THEY'VE DIED,
TOO.
EVERY DAY THEY GET PLAINER,
AS IF THEY COULD BELONG
TO ANYONE ELSE.
AND THEN YOU'VE GOT
KATHERINE BELL --
HATEFUL, AWFUL KATHERINE THAT
HAS PROBABLY NEVER LOVED ANYONE
BUT HERSELF.
SHE'S GOING TO HAVE NIKOLAS'
BABY.
DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT I'D
GIVE TO HAVE LUCKY'S CHILD?
JASON: IT'S NO GOOD TO THINK
ABOUT THINGS THAT COULD NEVER
HAPPEN.
ELIZABETH: IT COULD HAVE
HAPPENED IF I WASN'T SO AFRAID.
JASON: AFRAID?
YOU -- YOU WEREN'T AFRAID
OF LUCKY.
AND YOU WOULD NOT BE BETTER OFF
NOW WITH A BABY.
ELIZABETH: THEN TELL ME
SOMETHING --
HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO STOP
WANTING TO LIVE THE LIFE
I HAVEN'T LIVED WITH HIM?
WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO
INSTEAD?
WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO WISH FOR?
AM I SUPPOSED TO GO BACKWARD
TO WHO I WAS BEFORE I MET HIM?
BECAUSE I CAN DO THAT.
IT WASN'T THAT HARD.
AT LEAST I KNOW HOW.
I THOUGHT I KNEW HOW.

NIKOLAS: WELL, YOU'RE GOING
TO BE MAD AT ME.
STEFAN: I TAKE IT YOUR ANSWER
IS NO.
NIKOLAS: IF YOU REALLY
NEEDED ME --
IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING --
I'D DO ANYTHING.
OK, BUT LET'S BE HONEST.
WHAT YOU'RE DOING HERE IS TRYING
TO HELP ME.
STEFAN: AND IF THAT'S
AN ELEMENT OF MY PROPOSAL,
IS THAT SO WRONG?
ARE YOU OR ARE YOU NOT SEEKING
EMPLOYMENT?
NIKOLAS: YEAH, I AM.
STEFAN: THE POSITION COULD BE
TEMPORARY IF YOU PREFER.
ONCE THE ESTATE IS IN ORDER,
THE JOB IS DONE.
NIKOLAS: THE JOB YOU'RE
TRYING TO GIVE ME IS THE JOB
I'VE ALWAYS HAD ALL MY LIFE --
BEING A CASSADINE.
THE CASSADINE.
THAT'S OVER.
I WANT TO GO FORWARD, NOT BACK.
STEFAN: I WILL RESPECT
YOUR DECISION, OF COURSE.
BUT REMEMBER TS --
YOU MAY NO LONGER CARRY
THE BURDEN OF BEING
THE CASSADINE PRINCE,
BUT YOU ARE STILL A CASSADINE.
THAT IS NOT AN OCCUPATION.
IT IS AN IDENTITY.
IT IS A DUTY.
COME WHAT MAY, YOU WILL ALWAYS
HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO FAMILY.

KATHERINE: SHOULD I SAY
GOOD NIGHT TO YOU FOR
THE FIRST TIME,
YOUR FIRST NIGHT SLEEPING INSIDE
OF ME?
I'VE ACHED TO FEEL YOU
FOR SO LONG.
I ALREADY LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
AND YOUR FATHER WILL, TOO.
I PROMISE.

EMILY: I'M SORRY.
JUAN: FOR WHAT?
BECAUSE I WAS DUMB?
EMILY: NO.
BECAUSE
IT HURTS WHEN SOMETHING THAT
MEANS SO MUCH TO YOU IS
SOMETHING YOU CAN'T BELIEVE
IN ANYMORE.
JUAN: YEAH, WELL, SONNY MAY
BE COOL, YOU KNOW, AND HAVE
GREAT SUITS AND GET RESPECT
WHEREVER HE GOES, BUT HE'S NOT
WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE.
EMILY: NOBODY IS.
BUT HE'S ALSO NOT THAT BAD.
JUAN: I KNOW.
YOU KNOW, I SEE THAT.
STILL, IT'S PRETTY -- GOT TO BE
PRETTY STUPID TO, YOU KNOW,
TREAT HIM LIKE A GOD,
TO TRUST HIM,
PUT YOUR LIFE IN HIS HANDS.
I MEAN, SONNY SAYS THINGS,
AND MAYBE THEY'RE LIES OR MAYBE
HE DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE MEANS,
BUT HE TURNS ON PEOPLE
OR HE FORGETS TO THINK ABOUT
THEM WHEN HE SHOULD AND BAD
THINGS HAPPEN
AND PEOPLE DIE.
AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED
TO MY MOTHER.
YOU KNOW, AND HE CAN BE AS SORRY
AS HE WANTS TO, BUT WHAT'S IT
GOING TO CHANGE?
SHE'S STILL GONE.

HANNAH: I CAN'T UNTANGLE YOU.
THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE ARE
THE PEOPLE YOU THINK YOU HAVE
TO HURT.
AND THE PEOPLE YOU NEED ARE
THE PEOPLE YOU THINK YOU CAN'T
HAVE NEAR YOU WHEN YOU NEED
THEM.
AND WHEN YOU EXPLAIN THIS TO ME,
WHEN YOU TELL ME,
I EVEN UNDERSTAND
BECAUSE I CAN HEAR YOUR HEART
SPEAKING.
DOES IT SCARE ME THAT BAD THINGS
SEEM TO FOLLOW YOU AROUND?
YES.
ENOUGH TO LEAVE?
NO.
BECAUSE THERE'S NOTHING THAT
SCARES ME MORE THAN TO THINK
OF MY LIFE WITHOUT YOU.
I LOVE YOU, SONNY.
NO.
THAT'S NOT A CUE.
I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS TIME THAT
YOU KNEW THAT.
SONNY: HOW CAN ONE SCREWED-UP
GUY BE SO LUCKY IN ONE LIFETIME?
I NEVER EXPECTED TO BE OFFERED
THAT AGAIN.
AND THIS TIME, I GOT TO TELL
YOU SOMETHING -- I'M GOING
TO LIVE UP TO IT.
DON'T GO HOME TONIGHT.
HANNAH: OK.
SONNY: OR TOMORROW NIGHT
OR ANY NIGHT.
MAKE THIS YOUR HOME,
STARTING NOW.

MAN: HE COULD TAKE OFF
AGAIN -- FOR GOOD THIS TIME.
SECOND MAN: THAT'S NOT
LIKELY.
EVERYTHING IS GOING HIS WAY.
FIRST MAN: YOU WANT
TO RISK IT?
YOU WANT TO BE THE ONE THAT SAYS
"LET'S WAIT" AND THEN
SUDDENLY -- POOF -- HE'S GONE?
NO, IF WE'RE GOING TO MOVE
ON HIM, I THINK IT HAS TO BE
NOW.
SECOND MAN: OK.
LET'S PUT IT IN GEAR.

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

JUAN: CAN YOU STICK AROUND
FOR A WHILE AND STILL GET HOME
BY MIDNIGHT?
EMILY: SURE.

HANNAH: YOU WANT ME TO LIVE
WITH YOU?
SONNY: I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM
WITH IT.
UNLESS YOU DO.

ELIZABETH: YOU'RE NOT GOING
TO SAY IT.
JASON: SAY WHAT?
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW THAT I'M
NOT GOING TO BE OK.

JAX: WHAT'S WRONG?
ALEXIS, WHAT'S WRONG?
