JAX: ALEXIS?
OH, GOOD.
WHERE'S ASHTON?
I HATE TO DO THIS TO YOU,
BUT THERE'S BEEN ANOTHER CHANGE
ON THE PARENTS' ARRIVAL.
HEY, ASHTON, YOU'RE NO LONGER
ALONE WITH YOUR WIFE.
I'M TAKING HER WITH ME.
HI.
ALEXIS: NED'S NOT HERE.
JAX: ALEXIS, WHAT'S WRONG?
ELIZABETH: THANK YOU.
JASON: IT'S SODA.
ELIZABETH: YOU GET IT.
YOU GET THAT I'M NEVER GOING
TO GET PAST LUCKY.
YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES I SEE HIM.
I'LL BE WALKING DOWN THE STREET
OR IN THE HOSPITAL, AND I'LL SEE
M.
AND I LOOK AGAIN, AND
HE'S VANISHED.
OR I REALIZE THAT IT WAS JUST
SOMEONE THAT LOOKED LIKE HIM,
BUT NOT REALLY.
YOU'RE NOT GOING TO SAY IT,
ARE YOU?
JASON: SAY WHAT?
ELIZABETH: THAT I'M
STRONGER THAN I KNOW,
THAT EVERYTHING'S GOING TO BE OK
AS LONG AS I REMEMBER THAT LUCKY
LOVES ME.
YOU DIDN'T SAY IT BECAUSE
YOU KNOW THAT I'M NOT GOING
TO BE OK AND THAT I AM GOING
TO MISS LUCKY FOREVER.

EMILY: WOW.
I'VE NEVER BEEN IN YOUR ROOM
BEFORE.
JUAN: YOU HAVE TO KEEP
YOUR VOICE DOWN.
THERE'S THIS BOGUS RULE ABOUT
NO LATNIGHT VISITORS.
EMILY: SAYS WHO?
JUAN: BOBBIE.
EMILY: OH, MAN.
SEE, THAT'S THE ONE THING
I CAN'T STAND ABOUT ADULTS.
IT'S ALWAYS "DO AS I SAY AND NOT
AS I DO."
ANYWAY --
MY PARENTS ARE PROBABLY MAKING
BETSO SEE IF I'LL BE HOME
BY CURFEW.
I SHOULD PROBABLY GO.
JUAN: DON'T GO.
I MEAN, YOU STILL HAVE PLENTY
OF TIME, YOU KNOW?
YOU CAN STICK AROUND
FOR A WHILE, STILL GET HOME
BY MIDNIGHT.
YOU ARE THE BEST THING THAT
HAPPENED TODAY.
STAY.
PL
EMILY: SURE.

HANNAH: I DID THIS, DIDN'T I?
I SAID, "I LOVE YOU."
AND NOW YOU THINK YOU OWE ME
A RESPONSE BY ASKING ME TO MOVE
IN WITH YOU.
YOU DON'T OWE ME ANYTHING,
SONNY.
I SAID I LOVE YOU.
THAT'S ALL.
SONNY: DO I LOOK LIKE A MAN
UNDER PRESSURE TO YOU?
I WANT YOU WITH ME.
THAT'S WHY I TOOK YOU
TO PUERTO RICO.
AND ALL THAT SHOWED ME WAS HOW
MUCH I WANTED YOU AROUND EVEN
MORE.
ISN'T ANY OF THAT GOING
ON WITH YOU?
HANNAH: OF COURSE, BUT --
SONNY: LET'S JUST TAKE
THE NEXT STEP.
LET'S LIVE TOGETHER.

HANNAH: YOU'RE SERIOUS?
YOU WANT ME TO LIVE WITH YOU.
SONNY: WHY IS THAT SUCH
A SURPRISE TO YOU?
HANNAH: I DON'T KNOW.
MAYBE BECAUSE TWO WEEKS AGO
I WASN'T EVEN ALLOWED
IN YOUR FRONT DOOR.
SONNY: WELL, TWO WEEKS AGO,
I MEAN, YOU KNOW, I WAS MESSED
UP.
I MEAN, I WAS AFRAID
FOR YOU AND JUAN, AND,
YOU KNOW, IT DID A NUMBER ON ME
BECAUSE OF STUFF FROM MY PAST.
HANNAH: BUT WHAT IF I WAS
LIVING WITH YOU?
WHERE WOULD I HAVE BEEN,
OUT ON THE STREETS?
SONNY: WELL, WE WEREN'T.
AND IF WE WERE, YOU KNOW,
I WOULD HAVE BEEN FORCED
TO HANDLE IT DIFFERENTLY.
BUT THE POINT IS WE GOT PAST
IT -- WE, TOGETHER.
YOU'RE AS BULLHEADED AS I AM,
HANNAH.
I WANT YOU WITH ME.
HANNAH: DON'T USE THAT TONE.
SONNY: WHY?
HANNAH: BECAUSE IT'S NOT
FAIR.
I WANT TO BE WITH YOU, TOO.
SONNY: ALL RIGHT.
HANNAH: JUST NOT LIVING HERE.
SONNY: GIVE ME ONE GOOD
REASON WHY YOU DON'T, AND ME
CONTROLLING YOU DOESN'T COUNT.
HANNAH: I KNOW THERE ARE
THINGS YOU WANT TO KEEP
TO YOURSELF.
SONNY: OK.
HANNAH: AND HAVING SOMEONE
AROUND ALL THE TIME IS GOING
TO BE A MAJOR ADJUSTMENT.
SONNY: I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM
WITH IT.
UNLESS YOU DO.
OR THERE ARE SOME THINGS YOU'RE
TRYING TO KEEP TO YOURSELF?

JUAN: CAN YOU SEE IT?
MAYBE YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE
BECAUSE IT'S DARK.
EMILY: NO.
I CAN SEE IT.
I EVEN SEE A BOAT.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT WOULD BE
REALLY AMAZING?
IF YOU PUT A MIRROR RIGHT THERE,
SO THEN THE RIVER WOULD REFLECT
OFF IT AND YOU COULD SEE IT
WHENEVER YOU WANTED.
YOU KNOW, I REALLY LIKE THIS
PLACE.
JUAN: YEAH, IT'S DIFFERENT
THAN MY ROOM AT HOME, BUT IT
BEATS PARK BENCHES.
EMILY: MUST BE AMAZING --
I MEAN, TO LIVE ON YOUR OWN
WITH NO ONE TO TELL YOU WHAT
YOU CAN DO AND WHEN YOU CAN
DO IT.
JUAN: YEAH, I HAVE TO ADMIT,
IT'S PRETTY AWESOME.
THE OTHER GREAT THING THAT CAME
OUT OF ME COMING HERE.
EMILY: I KNOW YOU REALLY
WANTED SONNY TO BE YOUR FATHER.
JUAN: I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS
A LITTLE KID AND I MET SONNY.
YOU KNOW, I NEVER THOUGHT,
"THAT'S MY FATHER."
I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW I WAS
ADOPTED.
AND, YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT LILY
WAS A FRIEND.
IT NEVER OCCURRED TO ME THAT
SHE WAS MY BIRTH MOTHER.
I ONLY SPENT ONE AFTERNOON
WITH LILY AND SONNY TOGETHER.
BUT EVERYTHING HE SAID AND DID,
YOKNOW, STAYED WITH ME.
THE WAY HE THREW TO ME -- THAT'S
HOW I THREW A BALL FROM THEN ON.
AND THE SECOND TIME WE MET,
WHEN HE CAME TO TELL ME THAT
LILY DIED, I REMEMBERED EVERY
WORD THEN, TOO.
HE DIDN'T STAY LONG,
MAYBE A COUPLE OF HOURS.
BUT I STUDIED THE WAY HE SPOKE,
HOW HE WALKED,
THE WAY HE TREATED PEOPLE.
AND EVER SINCE THEN,
I WANTED TO BE JUST LIKE HIM.
AND TODAY,
FINALLY, I'M OVER IT.

ELIZABETH: IT'S NOT
AS IF I'VE NEVER GOT PAST
ANYTHING TERRIBLE.
LAST YEAR, I WAS RAPED.
FOR A WHILE, I THOUGHT MY LIFE
WAS OVER.
I COULDN'T IMAGINE BEING NORMAL
AGAIN.
BUT I HAD TO FIGHT MY WAY BACK.
AND THE ONLY REASON I DID
OR COULD WAS BECAUSE OF LUCKY.
HE SHOWED ME HOW -- I DON'T --
I CAN'T EXPLAIN IT, BUT --
JASON: YOU DON'T HAVE TO.
I KNEW LUCKY.
ELIZABETH: I TRY AND HEAR
HIS VOICE AND DO WHAT HE'D TELL
ME.
HE'D SAY,
"DON'T MISS ME ALL THE TIME."
SO I ACT AS IF I MISS HIM LESS.
BUT IT'S JUST AN ACT.
AND EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE BUYING
IT.
I FEEL LIKE A FRAUD.
AND THE WEIRD THING IS
THE PERSON I'M TRYING TO PLEASE
MOST IS LUCKY.
AND I CAN'T TAKE THIS ANYMORE.
JASON: HOW'D YOU PICK JAKE'S?
ELIZABETH: I DIDN'T THINK
ANYONE HERE WOULD KNOW ME.
AND THAT'S WHAT -- THANKS --
THAT'S WHAT I WANTED --
TO BE SOMEBODY ELSE.
I WANTED TO BE WHO I WAS BEFORE
I EVER CAME TO PORT CHARLES
OR JUMP FORWARD TO THE ME THAT
I DON'T KNOW YET.
YOU KNOW, THE ME WHO MOVED ON,
THE ME WHO GOT PAST ALL THIS
PAIN.
I WANTED TO BE WHO I WAS
WITH LUCKY.
HE MADE ME INTO SOMEBODY BETTER.
AND I DON'T KNOW HOW I CAN STAY
LIKE THAT WITHOUT HIM.
JASON: LUCKY DIDN'T
MAKE YOU INTO SOMEBODY BETTER.
NOBODY CAN MAKE ANOTHER PERSON.
YOU MAKE YOURSELF.

JASON: THERE WAS SOMEONE WHO
TAUGHT ME THINGS, TOO.
I USED TO THINK SHE MADE ME,
BUT SHE DIDN'T -- NOT ANY MORE
THAN LUCKY MADE YOU.
SHE TAUGHT ME THINGS.
SHE LOVED ME, BUT
I STAYED MYSELF.
EVEN LOVE CAN'T MAKE
YOU INTO SOMEONE NEW.
ELIZABETH: LUCKY DIDN'T WANT
THAT.
HE NEVER -- HE NEVER TRIED
TO CHANGE WHO I WAS.
IT'S MORE LIKE
HE FOUND SOMETHING SPECIAL
IN ME.
THEN, AFTER A WHILE, I DID, TOO.
HE SAID I HAD TALENT
AS AN ARTIST, AND I BELIEVED IT.
HE MADE ME FEEL PRETTY AGAIN.
WITHOUT HIM, THAT'S ALL GONE.
TONIGHT, I TRIED ON ALL
OF MY CLOTHES, AND NOTHING
LOOKED RIGHT.
IT'S LIKE I DON'T FIT IN MY OWN
SKIN ANYMORE.
AND MY DRAWINGS --
MY DRAWINGS ARE ALL DIFFERENT.
THEY USED TO BE SO HAPPY,
AND NOW THEY'RE JUST --
FURIOUS.
I'M FURIOUS.
IS THAT WRONG?
JASON: NO.
ELIZABETH: I WAS NEVER GOING
TO BE ALONE AGAIN, YOU KNOW?
LUCKY HAD -- WE HAD OUR LIVES
PLANNED.
I KNEW WHERE I WANTED TO GO
TO COLLEGE, WHAT WE WERE GOING
TO DO TO EARN MONEY.
WE EVEN PICKED OUT OUR
APARTMENT.
THE ONLY THING WE HADN'T DONE
WAS NAME OUR KIDS.
UM --
YOU KNOW, IT WAS WRONG OF ME
TO TELL YOU THAT NIKOLAS
AND KATHERINE ARE GOING TO HAVE
A BABY.
IT MIGHT NOT EVEN BE TRUE,
BUT EITHER WAY, IT'S A SECRET.
JASON: WELL, I WON'T TELL.
ELIZABETH: THANK YOU.
DO YOU WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH?
I'M JEALOUS OF HER.
IF I HAD LUCKY'S CHILD,
A PART OF HIM WOULD STILL BE
HERE.
JASON: AND LUCKY -- LUCKY
WOULD STILL BE GONE, AND THEN
YOU'D HAVE A BABY WHO WOULDN'T
HAVE GOTTEN TO KNOW HIS FATHER.

JUAN: ONE THING I'LL GIVE
SONNY IS HE NEVER LIED.
YOU KNOW, HE SAID TO ME
FROM THE START THAT IT WAS
A MISTAKE COMING TO
PORT CHARLES.
HE SHOVED MONEY AT ME TO MAKE ME
GO AWAY.
I WAS SO LAME.
EMILY: NO, I DON'T THINK IT
WAS LAME THAT YOU THOUGHT SONNY
WAS YOUR FATHER.
I MEAN, I PRACTICALLY STILL
BELIEVED IT, EVEN AFTER HE TOLD
ME OTHERWISE.
JUAN: HE BETRAYED LILY.
HE MAY AS WELL HAVE KILLED
HER HIMSELF.
THIS IS WHO I MADE A HERO.
EMILY: YOU KNOW, I HAD SOME
PRETTY WEIRD HEROES WHEN
I WAS 11.
MAYBE KIDS DO THAT BECAUSE
THINGS ARE SCARY AT HOME.
JUAN: YEAH, BUT I'M NOT 11.
EMILY: WELL, HOW OLD WERE
YOU WHEN YOUR PARENTS TOLD
YOU YOU WERE ADOPTED?
JUAN: THEY DIDN'T.
I FOUND A LETTER IN MY MOTHER'S
DESK.
AND BY THEN SHE WAS SICK, DYING.
NOT THAT ANYBODY TOLD ME THAT,
EITHER.
THE LETTER SAID THAT LILY WAS
MY BIRTH MOTHER.
EMILY: SO THEN IT'S ONLY
NATURAL THAT YOU WOULD THINK
THAT SONNY IS YOUR FATHER.
JUAN, I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT
THE EXACT SAME THING.
JUAN: YEAH.
I STARTED TO THINK IT SO MUCH
THAT I HARDLY EVEN WORRIED ABOUT
MY MOM.
AND SHE DIED.
AND EVEN BEFORE A YEAR HAD
PASSED, MY FATHER, HE -- HE WAS
SUDDENLY ALREADY GETTING
REMARRIED.
AND AFTER THAT, I STARTED
THINKING ABOUT SONNY EVEN MORE.
I SPENT OVER A YEAR PLANNING HOW
I WAS GOING TO FIND A WAY TO GET
TO PORT CHARLES.
I SAVED MY MONEY, I WENT
ON THE INTERNET, PRACTICALLY
MEMORIZED EVERY TRAVEL SITE.
I PRINTED THIS MAP OF
PORT CHARLES AND STUDIED IT
EVERY NIGHT.
ALL BECAUSE I MADE UP SOME STORY
AND I STARTED TO BELIEVE IT.
EMILY: IS IT POSSIBLE THAT
MAYBE YOU WERE TRYING TO REPLACE
SOMETHING THAT YOU HAD LOST?
JUAN: LIKE WHAT?
EMILY: YOUR MOTHER.
BOTH YOUR MOTHERS.

SONNY: IF WE WERE TO LIVE
TOGETHER, IS THERE SOMETHING
THAT I MIGHT FIND OUT THAT
YOU DON'T WANT ME TO KNOW?
HANNAH: NO, NOT SPECIFICALLY.
I JUST -- THE LAST FEW WEEKS,
I'VE LEARNED A LESSON -- THAT
YOU'RE A MAN WHO NEEDS
HIS SPACE.
SONNY: YEAH.
HANNAH: I MEAN, IT WAS ME
BEFORE THAT WAS CROWDING YOU.
AND THAT BACKFIRED IN MY FACE.
YOU LISTEN TO ME AND YOU HEAR
ME, SOMETIMES EVEN WITHOUT
WORDS.
AND TO BE PART OF THAT KIND
OF CONNECTION, IT'S TOO
WONDERFUL, IT'S TOO RARE
TO LOSE.
I DON'T WANT TO RISK IT
BY MAKING A BIG CHANGE.
SONNY: SO YOU THINK LIVING
TOGETHER IS A STEP NEITHER OF US
NEEDS?
HANNAH: YEAH, JUST NOT RIGHT
NOW.
SONNY: OK, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
SPEAKING FOR ME, I --
I WANT YOU --
I NEED YOU WITH ME.
I KNEW THAT IN PUERTO RICO.
I KNOW IT EVEN MORE NOW.
YOU KNOW, I'M NOT WORRIED ABOUT
SPOILING WHAT WE HAVE,
ONLY WASTING TIME.
JUST STAY WITH ME.
LISTEN TO ME, OK?
IF IT DOESN'T WORK OUT,
THEN WE'LL THINK OF SOMETHING
ELSE, YOU KNOW?
I MEAN, IF THAT DOESN'T SOUND
REASONABLE, TELL ME WHAT DOES.
HANNAH: THE WAY THINGS ARE
NOW.
SONNY: OK, WAIT A MINUTE.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
IT DOESN'T MATTER BECAUSE I --
WHAT MATTERS IS WHEN
I'ING IN YOUR EYES,
I SEE FEAR.
WHY?

JAX: NO, NO, NO.
NO, YOU SHOULD MEET THE PLANE
AND MAKE SURE THEY GET SETTLED
IN THE SUITE.
BECAUSE I'M WITH MY WIFE.
THANK YOU.
I KNEW YOU'D UNDERSTAND.
BYE, JERRY.
ALEXIS: I TAKE IT
YOUR PARENTS ARE HERE.
JAX: YEAH, NOTHING STOPS JOHN
AND LADY JANE ONCE THEY'VE MADE
UP THEIR MINDS.
SEE, THE FLIGHT WAS REROUTED
BECAUSE OF BAD WEATHER,
SO THEY RENTED A PRIVATE JET.
ALEXIS: GOOD.
ALL RIGHT, THEN.
WELL, LET'S GO TO THE PENTHOUSE.
I WOULDN'T WANT MY IN-LAWS
BEATING ME TO THE FRONT DOOR.
JAX: YOU KNOW, YOU'RE A GOOD
LAWYER, ALEXIS.
I BELIEVE THE TACTIC YOU'RE
USING RIGHT NOW IS CALLED
MISDIRECTING, WHEREIN YOU GET ME
OFF MY QUESTION WITHOUT EVER
ANSWERING IT.
YOU KNOW, WE MAY NOT HAVE A REAL
MARRIAGE, BUT I KNOW WHEN
MY WIFE IS UPSET.
SO PLEASE TELL ME WHAT'S WRONG.
ALEXIS: FUNNY YOU SHOULD
BRING UP MARRIAGE.
NOW, OURS MAY BE ENTIRELY BOGUS,
BUT HAS IT EVER CROSSED
YOUR MIND THAT MAYBE NED'S
AND CHLOE'S ISN'T?

JAX: DAMN. I KNEW IT.
ALEXIS: KNEW WHAT?
THAT NED'S FALLING IN LOVE
WITH CHLOE?
JAX: NED SAID THAT?
ALEXIS: NO.
DID HE SAY THAT TO YOU?
JAX: NO, NO, OF COURSE NOT.
NED DOESN'T LOVE CHLOE.
HE LOVES YOU.
ALEXIS: THEN WHY DID YOU SAY
YOU KNEW IT?
JAX: I JUST ASSUMED THAT
HE MADE A COMMENT ABOUT CHLOE
AND DIDN'T BOTHER TO NOTICE THAT
IT HURT YOUR FEELINGS.
I MEAN, BIG SURPRISE.
NED DOESN'T PAY A LOT
OF ATTENTION.
THERE'S A DELICATE BALANCE THAT
THE FOUR OF US HAVE TO MAINTAIN.
WHAT'D NED DO?
DID HE PRAISE CHLOE FOR HELPING
L&B AS IF YOU HADN'T STOOD GUARD
OVER THAT COMPANY NIGHT AND DAY?
ALEXIS: NED DIDN'T SAY
ANYTHING.
THAT'S NOT WHY I'M UPSET.
I WAS JUST THINKING THAT
THEY MAKE A GREAT COUPLE.
JAX: NED AND CHLOE?
ALEXIS: YES.
I THINK THEY'RE VERY COMPATIBLE.
I DO.
THEY SPEAK THE SAME LANGUAGE,
AND THEY CERTAINLY MAKE EACH
OTHER LAUGH, AND THEY CERTAINLY
SPEND ENOUGH TIME TOGETHER THAT
WOULD IT BE SO IMPOSSIBLE
TO BELIEVE THAT THE PRETENSE
OF THEIR FALLING IN LOVE COULD
BE A REALITY AT SOME POINT?
WHERE WOULD THAT LEAVE US?

ELIZABETH: BEFORE I KNEW
LUCKY, BACK WHEN I WAS A ROYAL
BRAT, I MADE IT A POINT OF BEING
SELFISH.
I DID WHAT I WANTED, AND ANYBODY
THAT DIDN'T LIKE IT, TOUGH.
AND NOW I AM JUST AS SELFISH,
BUT IT'S ALL UNDERGROUND.
I DON'T TELL EMILY THAT I CAN'T
STAND SEEING HER WITH HER NEW
BOYFRIEND.
I DON'T TELL NIKOLAS THAT
NO MOVIE IS EVER GOING TO CHEER
ME UP.
MY GRANDMOTHER GOES OUT AND BUYS
ME ALL THESE GREAT CLOTHES
FOR COLLEGE, AND I DON'T TELL
HER THAT I HATE THEM,
THAT I DON'T EVEN WANT TO GO
TO COLLEGE, THAT I DON'T EVEN
WANT TO COME OUT OF MY ROOM.
I DON'T TELL PEOPLE THAT IT
MAKES ME WANT TO SCREAM EVERY
TIME I SEE THEM SMILE
BECAUSE THERE'S NOTHING TO SMILE
ABOUT.
I LOOK AROUND AT EVERYONE,
AND I WONDER HOW IT IS POSSIBLE
THAT THEIR LIVES ARE GOING
ON WHEN MY WHOLE WORLD HAS
FALLEN APART.
JASON: YOU THINK IT'S SELFISH
TO MISS SOMEONE?
I MISS SOMEONE ALL THE TIME.
NOW, YOU CAN MAKE THAT AN EXCUSE
TO WRECK YOURSELF, BUT I THINK
THAT'S SELFISH.
AND PEOPLE WHO CARE ABOUT
YOU WOULD BE HURT.
ELIZABETH: THEY WANT TO FEEL
BETTER.
AND THEY FIGURE IF I CAN,
THEN THEY CAN.
YOU KNOW, IT'S LIKE THEY ALMOST
NEED MY PERMISSION AND I GIVE IT
TO THEM.
JASON: WELL, THAT'S NOT SUCH
A BAD THING.
ELIZABETH: BUT I'M JUST GOING
THROUGH THE MOTIONS, JASON.
I'M EXHAUSTED.
I CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE.
LUCKY WAS MY REASON FOR TRYING,
MY REASON FOR EVERYTHING.
JASON: WELL, SOMETIMES
IF OTHER PEOPLE NEED YOU,
THAT'S ENOUGH.
ELIZABETH: I FEEL
SO UNGRATEFUL.
I KNOW I HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE
WHO LOVE ME.
I HAD LUCKY.
FOR ONE SHINING YEAR,
I HAD THE VERY BEST.
I REMEMBER
I USED TO TELL HIM,
"YOU'RE LUCKY, BUT I'M LUCKIER."
WELL, SO MUCH FOR COMING HERE
TO STOP HURTING AND GET AWAY.
JASON: COME ON.
ELIZABETH: WHY?
JASON: I WANT TO SHOW YOU HOW
I GET AWAY.
JASON: YOU WANT TO GO
FOR A RIDE?
ELIZETH: WHERE?
JASON: NOWHERE.
ELIZABETH: OK.
I COULD GO FOR THAT.
JASON: OK.
[ENGINE STARTS]
JASON: IF YOU DON'T LIKE
SOMETHING, JUST YELL.

JUAN: WHY IS IT THAT
WE INSTANTLY GET ALONG WITH SOME
PEOPLE AND OTHERS IT'S LIKE
WRESTLING AN ELEPHANT?
EMILY: I THINK SOMETIMES
WE HAVE THINGS IN COMMON
WITH CERTAIN PEOPLE AND OTHER
TIMES WE DON'T.
MY GRANDMOTHER SAYS THAT
EXPERIENCE DRAWS US TO PEOPLE
EVEN IF WE DON'T KNOW IT.
FOR INSTANCE, WHAT DID
YOUR ADOPTIVE MOTHER DIE FROM?
JUAN: CANCER.
EMILY:MINE, TOO.
MY --
MY REAL MOM, MY FIRST MOM.
I WAADOPTED, TOO.
I LIVED IN ARIZONA UP UNTIL
THE TIME I WAS 11, AND THEN
MY MOM GOT BREAST CANCER.
MY MOM NOW, SHE GOT BREAST
CANCER, TOO -- MONICA.
THAT'S WHERE THEY MET --
IN TREATMENT.
AND THEY JUST BECAME THE BEST
OF FRIENDS PRACTICALLY
OVERNIGHT.
WHEN MY MOM REALIZED THAT
SHE WASN'T GOING TO MAKE IT,
SHE ASKED MONICA AND ALAN
TO TAKE CARE OF ME.
AFTER SHE DIED, THEY ADOPTED ME.
I HAVEN'T CALLED THEM THAT
IN A LONG TIME.
JUAN: THEY TREAT YOU LIKE --
EMILY: I WAS BORN
INTO THE FAMILY?
I KNOW.
THEY ALWAYS HAVE.
EVEN WHEN I TRIED TO MAKE IT
HARD.
SO ANYWAY, THAT'S -- THAT'S JUST
SOME OF THE THINGS THAT WE SHARE
IN COMMON THAT HELPS US
TO UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER,
YOU KNOW?
THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS
I REMEMBER MY BIRTH MOTHER VERY
WELL.
I HAD A CHANCE TO LOVE
HER AS A MOM, AND I THINK THAT
THAT'S WHY SONNY IS SO IMPORTANT
TO YOU.
YOU'VE LOST TWO MOMS.
MAYBE THERE'S -- THERE'S THIS
HOLE INSIDE AND YOU FEEL LIKE
YOU NEED TO FILL IT
WITH SOMETHING.
JUAN: I REMEMBER WHEN I FOUND
OUT I WAS ADOPTED AND THAT LILY
WAS MY BIRTH MOTHER.
AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, I FELT LIKE
I DIDN'T KNOW WHO I WAS.
OR MAYBE ALL THOSE THINGS THAT
NEVER MADE SENSE THAT THAT WOULD
EXPLAIN IT -- I WAS ADOPTED.
AND ON THE ONE HAND,
I WAS STUNNED.
BUT ON THE OTHER,
IT'S LIKE SO MUCH STARTED MAKING
SENSE.
THEN I JUMPED TO THE CONCLUSION
THAT SONNY WAS MY FATHER.
AND I GUESS ALL AROUND,
YOU KNOW, I MADE HIM OUT TO BE
SOMEONE THAT HE ISN'T.
DO YOU KNOW, ACCORDING TO SONNY,
MY GRANDFATHER KILLED MY MOTHER
WHEN HE WAS TRYING TO MURDER
SONNY BECAUSE SONNY CHEATED
ON MY MOTHER.
HOW'S THAT FOR D.N.A.?
EMILY: BUT THAT ISN'T YOU.
YOU'RE JUAN, AND THAT'S WHAT
MAKES YOU GREAT, YOU KNOW?
THAT'S WHO I LIKE.
THAT'S WHO EVERYBODY ELSE LIKES.
JUAN: LIKE YOUR BROTHER?
EMILY: LIKE HANNAH,
BOBBIE, AND TONY AND LAURA.
JUAN: I SEE YOU FAILED
TO MENTION ELIZABETH
OR THE PRINCE.
EMILY: ELIZABETH LIKES YOU.
NIKOLAS --
NIKOLAS HAS A PROBLEM
WITH THE MACHO ACT.
JUAN: WHAT ACT?
LIKE I SAID, THE BEST THING THAT
CAME OUT OF ALL OF THIS IS I MET
YOU.
PLEASE DON'T EVER LEAVE ME.
EMILY: I CAN'T PROMISE THAT.
I HAVE A CURFEW, REMEMBER?
JUAN: WE STILL HAVE TIME.

SONNY: WHY DO I SEE FEAR
IN YOUR EYES?
HANNAH: HOW COULD I NOT BE
AFRAID?
I CAME TO THIS TOWN WITH A PLAN
FOR MYSELF THAT DIDN'T INCLUDE
FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOU.
I HAD THIS LITTLE VOICE
IN MY HEAD THAT SAID, "BE SMART
WITH THIS ONE."
AND WHEN YOU WERE WONDERFUL,
IT SAID, "THIS IS FUN, BUT DON'T
BUY INTO IT."
AND WHEN YOU GIVE ME THAT SMILE,
THAT WOULD MAKE ALL THE REASON
JUST GO STRAIGHT OUT OF MY HEAD.
THIS WASN'T SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN,
SONNY.
I MEAN, IT'S BEEN FUN
AND EXHILARATING, BUT I'M SCARED
TO DEATH.
YOU'VE GOT ME WANTING THINGS.
SONNY: WHAT THINGS?
HANNAH: THINGS THAT
I COULDN'T EVEN IMAGINE NOT TOO
LONG AGO.
SONNY: ALL RIGHT, I GET IT,
I GET IT.
YOU LET YOURSELF IMAGINE
A FUTURE WITH SOMEONE LIKE ME,
AND YOU SEE IT, AND IT FRIGHTENS
YOU.
HANNAH: NO, YOU DON'T GET IT.
I WANT THAT FUTURE TOO MUCH.
SONNY: REALLY?
HANNAH: HOW DO YOU DEAL
WITH A MAN WITH GREAT EXTREMES?
SONNY: MEANING WHAT?
THAT FIRST I WANT YOU MORNING,
DAY, AND NIGHT, AND THEN I DON'T
WANT YOU ANYWHERE NEAR ME?
WELL, I'LL TELL YOU THE GOOD
THING ABOUT THAT.
YOU'LL NEVER BE BORED.
AND THE OTHER GOOD THING IS IT'S
NOT MY USUAL STYLE.
HANNAH: YOU BEING
UNPREDICTABLE I CAN HANDLE.
BUT WHAT IF ONE DAY YOU WAKE UP
AND YOU DON'T FEEL THE SAME WAY
ABOUT ME ANYMORE OR YOU CHANGE
YOUR MIND AND IT STICKS?
SONNY: WHY WOULD THAT HAPPEN?
I GOT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING,
SWEETHEART --
WHEN SOMEONE MATTERS TO ME,
THAT DOESN'T CHANGE.
AND WHEN I FINALLY TRUST,
THAT DOESN'T CHANGE EITHER,
UNLESS, YOU KNOW, I'M BETRAYED.
AND I THINK WE'VE BEEN THROUGH
THAT.
WHY, DO YOU SEE IT HAPPENING?
HANNAH: THERE'S NOTHING
I WANT MORE THAN FOR
YOU TO TRUST ME.
SONNY: I DO.

JUAN: YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS
LITTLE, OUR FAMILY HAD
A HOUSEKEEPER WHO WAS ALWAYS
WARNING ME IF I DIDN'T START
LISTENING, I'D BE SORRY.
WELL, YOU TOLD ME SONNY WASN'T
MY FATHER.
YOUR PARENTS, DR. JONES,
EVERYONE SAID THAT HE WAS
DANGEROUS.
BUT DID I LISTEN?
NO.
INSTEAD, I HAD TO GO AND
PRACTICALLY GET BEATEN TO DEATH,
YOU KNOW, CASH IN MY SPLEEN FOR
AN UGLY SCAR THAT'S NEVER
GOING TO GO AWAY,
SPEND A FEW WEEKS OF A GREAT
SUMMER IN THE HOSPITAL,
MAKE YOUR PARENTS HATE ME BEFORE
I EVEN GOT TO MEET THEM.
LET ME TELL YOU, I AM SORRY.
EMILY: SO ARE YOU SAYING THAT
YOU DON'T MEAN WHAT YOU SAID
BEFORE- THAT IF YOU HADN'T
GONE AHEAD AND DONE WHAT
YOU WANT AND TRY TO FIND SONNY
THAT WE WOULD HAVE NEVER MET?
JUAN: NO.
I MEANT THAT.
MEETING YOU MADE
EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED
WORTHWHILE.
EMILY: EVEN BEING
IN THE HOSPITAL?
JUAN: THE HOSPITAL.
EMILY: WHAT ABOUT YOUR SCAR?
JUAN: THE SCAR
AND 10 MORE JUST AS UGLY.
EMILY: WHAT ABOUT
YOUR SPLEEN?
JUAN: I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT
A SPLEEN DOES.
AND SO FAR I HAVEN'T MISSED IT.
BUT YOU --
YOU I'D MISS.
SINGER: TEMPTATION
WHISPERS SOFTLY
IT WAITS OUTSIDE MY DOOR
IT WATCHES THROUGH MY WINDOWS
IT SEES ME WALK THE FLOOR
MM-HMM, MM-HMM
MEMORIES
HOT AND THIRSTY
DANCE INSIDE MY HEAD
FAINTEST SMELL OF YOUR PERFUME
HAUNTS THIS HUMBLE BED
ONCE AGAIN I'M WALKIN'
THROUGH THE FLAMES
A SLAVE TO DESIRE
I CALL OUT YOUR NAME
BABY
SAVE ME FROM MYSELF
I THINK OF NOTHIN' ELSE
I'M FALLIN'
INTO THE FIRE
INTO THE FIRE

ELIZABETH: WOW.
THIS THING IS FAST.
JASON: SO, WHAT'D YOU THINK?
ELIZABETH: THE WIND WAS
SO LOUD, I COULDN'T THINK.
JASON: THAT'S THE IDEA.
ELIZABETH: JASON, THANK YOU
FOR THE RIDE AND FOR EVERYTHING.
JASON: ANYTIME.

JAX: WITH ALL DUE AFFECTION
AND RESPECT, DEAR WIFE, WHEN IT
COMES TO THE MAN YOU LOVE,
YOU'VE MADE A SHARP DETOUR
INTO LEFT FIELD.
AND I KNOW WHY.
SEE, NED'S HAPPILY LIVING
WITH ANOTHER WOMAN,
COMPLICATIONS ROLLING OFF
HIS BACK.
WHAT CAN I SAY?
HE HAS A GIFT FOR BIGAMY.
ALEXIS: EXCUSE ME?
JAX: WELL, THIS ISN'T
THE FIRST TIME NED'S DONE
A BALANCING ACT BETWEEN
TWO WIVES.
ALEXIS: WELL, RIGHT NOW
HE HAS ONE WIFE -- CHLOE.
AND FOR THE RECORD,
I'M YOUR
FE.
JAX: ALEXIS, RELAX.
NED'S LOVE FOR YOU IS REAL.
AND NO AMOUNT OF PRETENSE WILL
CRACK IT, MUCH LESS BREAK IT.
ALEXIS: PROXIMITY IS ITS OWN
KIND OF BOND, AND NED AND CHLOE
LIVE TOGETHER AND ON A DAILY
BASIS ARE IN HAND-TO-HAND COMBAT
WITH THE ENTIRE INSANE
QUARTERMAINE FAMILY.
JAX: YEAH, I KNOW PROXIMITY
BRINGS PEOPLE CLOSER TOGETHER,
LIKE US IN THE SAHARA, BUT LET
ME ASK YOU SOMETHING --
DID SPENDING TIME IN A CAVE
WITH ME MAKE YOU DOUBT
YOUR FEELINGS FOR NED?
ALEXIS: NOT EVEN ONCE.
JAX: EXACTLY.
SO WHY ANTICIPATE ANY LESS
OF NED?
HAVE YOU SUDDENLY GONE BLIND NOT
TO SEE THE WAY HE LOOKS
AT YOU AND HOW HE'D LIKE TO PUT
HIS FIST THROUGH MY FACE EVERY
TIME I TOUCH YOU?
ALEXIS, YOU'RE WHAT HE'S DONE
RIGHT, AND HE KNOWS THAT.
ALEXIS: THANKS, HUBBY.
WE SHOULD GET GOING.
JAX: IT'S OK.
JERRY'S BABYSITTING.
ALEXIS: WELL, YOU KNOW,
I NEED TO GET MY REST
BECAUSE YOUR MOTHER'S PROBABLY
GOING TO TAKE ME THROUGH
THE WOODS, ACROSS THE LAKE,
UP TO NOVA SCOTIA, ROCK CLIMBING
BEFORE BREAKFAST.
JAX: YEAH, ACTUALLY,
SHE DID ASK IF THERE WERE ANY
GOOD RAPPELLING SITES
IN THE AREA.
OH, YOU'LL LIKE RAPPELLING.
ALEXIS: I DON'T EVEN LIKE
HELICOPTERS.
JAX: WELL, AFTER TOMORROW,
YOU WILL LOVE HELICOPTERS.
I'M KIDDING.
ALEXIS: UH.
JAX: COME ON.
ALEXIS: GIVE ME JUST
A SECOND, WILL YOU?

EMILY: THERE'S STILL
ONE PROBLEM.
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO
WITH THE REST OF THE SUMMER NOW
THAT YOU'RE NOT TRYING
TO IMPRESS SONNY?
JUAN: I GUESS I'LL HAVE
TO IMPRESS YOU.

THAT'S -- THAT'S AMAZING.
THAT BLOWS ME AWAY.

NEVER COME BACK.

SONNY: STAY THE NIGHT.
I WON'T FORCE YOU TO STAY
FOREVER.
HANNAH: IT WOULD BE SO EASY
TO STAY FOREVER.
I DON'T KNOW.
SONNY: "I DON'T KNOW" IS OK
FOR NOW.
I'LL DEAL WITH THAT.
HANNAH: JUST HOLD ME, SONNY.
