MONICA: THANK YOU.
ALAN: MM-HMM.
EDWARD: WHERE IN TARNATION IS
MY --
MONICA: IF YOU SAY
"NEWSPAPER," I THINK I'LL
SCREAM.
LILA: EDWARD, WHY DON'T
YOU ADMIT YOU'RE AS BLIND
AS A BAT?
EDWARD: I MOST CERTAINLY
AM NOT.
MONICA: WHAT I WANT TO KNOW
IS HOW YOU CAN READ
THE NEWSPAPER WHEN YOU CAN'T
EVEN SEE IT WHEN IT'S RIGHT
UNDER YOUR NOSE.
EDWARD: IT IS NOT UNDER
MY NOSE, AND FOR YOUR --
ALAN: WELL, WHAT I WANT
TO KNOW IS, WHAT THE HECK IS
"TARNATION"?
YOU KNOW, WHEN I WAS A KID,
I USED TO VISUALIZE THIS VAST
BLACKTOP WASTELAND --
TAR NATION.
AND I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT
EVERYTHING THAT YOU LOST
OR OWNED, IT WOULD MIGRATE
THERE.
AND I WAS REALLY HOPING THAT
I WOULD GO THERE ONE DAY,
TO TAR NATION.
EDWARD: YOARE LIVING PROOF
THAT A PERSON'S MENTAL FACULTIES
ARE FOREVER DIMINISHED AFTER
DRUG USE.
REGINALD: GOOD MORNING!
AND A BEAUTIFUL DAY IT'S GOING
TO BTODAY, HUH?
A HIGH UP AROUND 76.
HUMIDITY AT A COMFORTABLE 42%.
BAROMETRIC PRESSURE IS STEADY.
AND THE CLOUD COVER SHOULD BN
OFF RIGHT AROUND NOON.
HERE'S YOUR PAPER, SIR.
THERE YOU GO.
OH, AND COOK DECLINED TOAKE
YOUR WALNUT RAISIN BREAD,
SO I JUST, YOU KNOW,
TOOK THE LIBERTY OF MAKING IT
MYSELF.
HERE YOU GO.
I ALSO PUT SOME ORANGE SLICES
ON TRE BECAUSE I HEARD
YOU COUGHING IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE NIGHT.
I THOUGHT IT'D BE NICE, A LITTLE
VITAMIN C BOOST.
EDWARD: WHAT'S THAT
ON MY NEWSPAPER?
REGINALD: THAT'D BE A FLOWER,
SIR.
EDWARD: HOW DID IT GET THERE?
REGINALD: I PUT IT THERE.
EDWARD: OH.
SO, SHE DECLINED TO MAKE
MY WALNUT RAISIN TOAST, HUH?
REGINALD: YEAH.
EDWARD: I'LL FIRE THAT WOMAN.
REGINALD: YOU KNOW,
TUALLY, I THINK SHE JUST
THOUGHT I WAS BEING A LITTLE TOO
DEMANDING, YOU KNOW,
AND I HONESTLY CAN'T BLAME HER.
I MEAN, AFTER ALL, I DIDAVE
HER MAKE THE BLUEBERRY MUFFIN
FOR MONICA THE CRANBERRY
SCONE FOR ALAN THERE.
I MEAN, YOU PEOPLE -- YOU PEOPLE
WORK SO HARD, YOU KNOW?
YOU DESERVE A --
A LITTLE -- I DON'T KNOW -- SOME
OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS WHEN
YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING,
RIGHT?
MONICA: THANK YOU.
REGINALD: OK.
ALAN: THANK YOU.
REGINALD: OH, AND YOU --
YOU ATE YOUR CANTALOUPE
AND YOUR YOGURT WITH WHEAT GERM.
THAT'S VERY GOOD.
WHAT DO YOU SAY?
SHOULD I -- I DON'T KNOW --
MAYBE BREW UP A FRESH POT
OF COFFEE?
LILA: FOR THE BENEFIT
OF YOU LATE RISERS,
CARLY AND A.J. CALLED
FROM THE AIRPORT.
THEY'RE ON THEIR WAY HOME
FROM THE HONEYMOON.
EDWARD: OH, HALLELUJAH.
ONE MORE SULLEN DAY
OF YOUR PINING AWAY AFTER THAT
TEMPTRESS OF A NANNY, AND I WAS
GOING TO HAVE YOU COMMITTED
TO THE HOME FOR WAYWARD BUTLERS.
A.J.: HELLO!
REGINALD: THEY'RE HERE.
ALAN: HEY, YOU TWO.
HI.
WELL, WE WANT TO HEAR
EVERYTHING.
HAVE SOME COFFEE.
HAVE SOME BREAKFAST.
A.J.: OH, THAT SOUNDS GREAT.
YOU KNOW, WE SLEPT LIKE LOGS
ON THE PLANE UNTIL JUST BEFORE
WE LANDED -- EVEN MICHAEL.
CARLY: YEAH.
REGINALD: AND I GUESS LETICIA
TOOK HIM STRAIGHT UPSTAIRS?
CARLY: NO.
SALLY DID.
YOU DIDN'T -- YOU DIDN'T TELL --
A.J.: I GUESS I FORGOT
TO MENTION IT.
SORRY, REG, OLD PAL,
BUT, WELL, LETICIA DIDN'T COME
BACK WITH US.

STEFAN: TODAY
I WILL SEE MY SON.
YES.
NIKOLAS AND I ARE CLOSER THAN
EVER.
WE ARE CLOSER THAN EVER, MOTHER.
YOU KNOW, HE MAY NOT BE
THE CASSADINE PRINCE,
BUT HE WILL STILL INHERIT
MY FATHER'S EMPIRE.
I WILL SEE TO IT.
STEFAN: DO YOUAVE ANY
MESSAGE FOR YOUR ONLY
GRANDCHILD?
NO?
IT'S JUST AS WELL.

FAISON: YOU MUST BE SO PROUD.
FAISON: WHAT THE HELL DID
YOU DO TO HIM AS A CHILD?
REFUSE TO TAKE HIM TO SOCCER
PRACTICE?
NOW, HOW DOES A MOTHER GOAD
A SON INTO POISONING HER,
LEAVING HER PARALYZED, AND THEN
TAUNTING HER WITH THE PROSPECT
OF NEVER RECOVERING?
WELL, FORTUNATELY, I HAVE OTHER
PLANS FOR YOU.

KATHERINE: AND I RARELY EAT
MORE THAN A CUP OF YOGURT
FOR BREAKFAST, BUT THIS MORNING
I HAD AN INCREDIBLE CRAVING
FOR A BELGIAN WAFFLE.
SO I TAKE THAT AS A SURE SIGN
THAT THE IMPLANTATION WAS
A SUCCESS AND I'M PREGNANT NOW.
DR. KALE: WELL, I'M A FIRM
BELIEVER IN POSITIVE THINKING.
LET'S JUST RUN A FEW TESTS
AND CONFIRM YOUR INSTINCTS,
SHALL WE?
KATHERINE: I'M ALL YOURS,
DOCTOR.

ELIZABETH: CAN I GET
YOU ANYTHING?
BOBBIE: THANK YOU,
BUT I THINK I'D BETTER FINISH
THIS FIRST BECAUSE LAST WEEK
I GOT KETCHUP ON TAMMY'S
PAYCHECK AND SHE WALKED AROUND
ALL DAY WONDERING WHO BLED
IN HER PURSE.
[BOBBIE LAUGHS]
ELIZABETH: OH.
BOBBIE: YOU OK?
ELIZABETH: SURE.
WHY NOT?
JASON: HI.
ELIZABETH: COFFEE?
JASON: NO.
NO, THANKS.
ELIZABETH: DO YOU NEED
A MENU?
JASON: NO.
BOBBIE: HELLO, STRANGER.
JASON: IS JUAN UPSTAIRS?
BOBBIE: YOU KNOW, I DON'T
KNOW.
I'VE BEEN ON THE PHONE.
CARLY CALLED.
SHE AND A.J. AND MICHAEL ARE
BACK FROM HAWAII.
JASON, WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO?
AM I SUPPOSED TO PRETEND THAT
YOU DIDN'T DO EVERYTHING YOU'VE
DONE FOR MY DAUGHTER
AND MY GRANDSON?
AM I SUPPOSED TO TREAT YOU LIKE
SOME KIND OF A DISTANT
ACQUAINTANCE?
JASON: I HOPE CARLY
AND MICHAEL HAD A GOOD TIME.
BOBBIE: THAT'S THE FIRST TIME
I EVER HEARD YOU SAY SOMETHING
JUST TO BE POLITE.
JASON: JUAN --
I HAVE A MESSAGE FOR YOU.
JUAN: YEAH, WELL, IF IT'S
FROM YOUR BOSS, I DON'T WANT
TO HEAR IT.
JASON: IT'S FROM MY SISTER.

JUAN: I DIDN'T KNOW IF I'D
HEAR FROM HER AFTER ALL
THE THINGS YOUR PARENTS SAID.
JASON: EMILY'S NOT ALLOWED
TO MAKE A CALL, AND SHE DOESN'T
WANT TO GET CAUGHT TRYING,
TO MAKE THINGS WORSE.
BUT SHE CAN CALL ME.
SO SHE SAID THAT SHE'S GOING
TO WRITE YOU IF SHE CAN FIGURE
OUT A WAY TO GET A LETTER MAILED
OUTSIDE OF CAMP.
JUAN: IS IT OK FOR ME
TO WRITE BACK?
JASON: PROBABLY NOT.
I GUESS SHE'LL LET YOU KNOW.
JUAN: OK.
IS THAT IT?
JASON: SHE WANTS YOU TO KNOW
THAT SHE'S THINKING ABOUT YOU.
JUAN: IT'S REALLY DECENT
OF YOU TO DO THIS, ESPECIALLY
SINCE I KNOW YOU PROBABLY HAVE
THE WRONG IDEA ABOUT ME.
JASON: I DON'T THINK
ABOUT YOU.
I'M JUST DOING EMILY A FAVOR.
JUAN: WELL, YOU MEAN A LOT
TO HER.
EMILY SAYS THAT YOUR MOTHER EVEN
LISTENS TO WHAT YOU SAY.
JASON: LET ME TELL
YOU SOMETHING.
GIVING MONICA A HARD TIME WILL
GET YOU NOWHERE.
JUAN: I WOULDN'T.
BUT I WAS THINKING IF YOU COULD
SAY SOMETHING TO HER --
DR. QUARTERMAINE -- ABOUT
LETTING YOUR SISTER COME HOME
FROM CAMP EARLY --
JASON: WHY WOULD I DO THAT?
JUAN: EMILY TOLD YOU WHAT
HAPPENED -- THE TRUTH.
WE FELL ASLEEP IN MY ROOM,
WHICH MAY HAVE BEEN, YOU KNOW,
KIND OF DUMB, BUT WE DIDN'T DO
ANYTHING WRONG.
DR. QUARTERMAINE'S ANOTHER ONE
WHO'S GOT THE WRONG IDEA
ABOUT ME.
I WENT TO THEIR HOUSE
FOR DINNER.
SONNY'S NAME CAME UP,
AND, LIKE A DOPE, I JUMPED
TO HIS DEFENSE.
THAT'S WHY.
DID HE EVER TELL YOU, YOU KNOW,
WHAT HAPPENED TO MY MOTHER,
WHY SHE DIED?
JASON: HE DIDN'T HAVE TO.
I WAS THERE.
JUAN: BUT DID HE TELL YOU
WHY IT HAPPENED
AND WHAT SONNY DID TO HER?
JASON: WHAT'S YOUR POINT?
JUAN: YOU SEEM LIKE A FAIR
PERSON.
EMILY THINKS OF YOU LIKE A GOD.
SO WHY DO YOU STICK BY SOMEBODY
LIKE HIM?
JASON: I'LL LET EMILY KNOW
I GAVE YOU THE MESSAGE.
JUAN: AND TELL HER, YOU KNOW,
I'LL BE WAITING HERE,
RIGHT HERE, WHEN SHE COMES BACK.

ALAN: YOU BETTER SIT.
EDWARD: YES, HE LOOKS PALE.
MONICA: HERE.
HERE, DRINK THIS.
EDWARD: HOW CARELESS CAN
YOU GET?
A.J.: WHAT?
WHAT DID I DO?
EDWARD: YOU WERE RESPONSIBLE
FOR THAT GIRL, AND YOU COULDN'T
KEEP YOUR EYE ON HER.
YOU LET HER RUN AWAY WITH SOME
HALF-NAKED POLYNESIAN.
REGINALD: OH --
A.J.: NO.
LOOK -- SHE CALLED HOME,
FOUND OUT HER MOTHER WAS ILL,
AND HAD TO LEAVE FOR FLORIDA.
REGINALD: FLORIDA.
ALAN: HOW ILL, EXACTLY?
CARLY: IT SOUNDED PRETTY
SERIOUS.
I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED
IF LETICIA HAD TO MOVE BACK
THERE.
MONICA: WELL, SHE MUST HAVE
GIVEN SOME MESSAGE FOR REGINALD.
CARLY: OH, YEAH.
OF COURSE SHE DID.
SHE DID.
OH, GOD.
WHERE IS IT?
OH, HERE.
YEAH.
REGINALD: OH, NO, NO, NO, NO.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
I CAN'T TAKE A "DEAR REGINALD"
LETTER BEFORE ALL THE BREAKFAST
PLATES HAVE BEEN CLEARED.
YOU READ IT.
A.J.: IF YOU INSIST.
REGINALD: NO, NOT -- NOT YOU.
I WOULDN'T TRUST YOU TO READ
INSTRUCTIONS TO INSTANT COFFEE.
HERE. YOU.
PLEASE?
LILA: LETICIA MISSES YOU VERY
MUCH AND --
OH.
I THINK THE REST OF THIS LETTER
YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY READ
YOURSELF.
REGINALD: YOU CAN MAKE
YOUR OWN COFFEE.
AND IF YOU WANT BREAKFAST,
BE HERE ON TIME.
EDWARD: A.J., HOW SOON CAN
YOU HAVE LETICIA'S MOTHER
AIRLIFTED HERE?
AND WHAT CAN YOU TWO DO FOR THAT
POOR WOMAN AT G.H.?
ALAN: WE DON'T EVEN KNOW
WHAT'S WRONG WITH HER.
EDWARD: AND YOU CALL YOURSELF
A DOCTOR?
A.J.: AIRLIFTED?
MONICA: REGINALD HAS BEEN
RATHER DIFFICULT WHILE YOU'VE
BEEN GONE.
A.J.: REALLY?
I HADN'T NOTICED ANY DIFFERENCE.
EDWARD: WELL, NO.
HE ALWAYS TREATS YOU THAT WAY,
BUT THE REST OF US --
CARLY: HEY, YOU KNOW, WE HAD
THE MOST FABULOUS TIME
IN HAWAII, IN CASE ANYBODY IS
INTERESTED.
A.J.: THAT'S RIGHT.
LILA: HOW DID MICHAEL ENJOY
THE OCEAN?
CARLY: HE ADORED IT.
A.J.: OH, YEAH.
I THINK HE DRANK TOO MUCH OF IT,
THOUGH.
CARLY: NO.
I GOT THE MOST ADORABLE PICTURES
OF HIM AT THE LITTLE SAND CASTLE
CONTEST.
ACTUALLY, I MADE A SET FOR ALL
OF YOU.
EDWARD: OH, THANK YOU.
MONICA: WELL, THAT WAS VERY
THOUGHTFUL OF YOU.
CARLY: I THINK WE'RE ALL
GOING TO BE FIGHTING JET LAG,
SO MAYBE I'LL TAKE MICHAEL
TO THE PARK AND TIRE HIM OUT.
A.J.: THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.
GOOD IDEA.
LISTEN, WERE THERE ANY
CATASTROPHES AT E.L.Q. WHILE
I WAS GONE?
EDWARD: JUST BUSINESS
AS USUAL.
A.J.: ALL RIGHT.
I'LL SWING BY THE OFFICE,
AND I'LL TRY TO CATCH UP
WITH YOU AND MICHAEL LATER.
CARLY: OH, OK.
BYE.
A.J.: BYE-BYE.
EDWARD: BYE-BYE.
MONICA and ALAN: BYE.
EDWARD: OH.
HAVE YOU COME TO THE ONE
WITH MICHAEL AND THE BIG
SEASHELL YET?
MONICA: YES.
SO CUTE.
EDWARD: AND A.J. AND CARLY
LOOK SO --
ALAN: "HAPPY," I BELIEVE,
IS THE WORD.
MONICA: YES.
THERE'S NO DENYING IT.
THEY DO.

FAISON: POOR HELENA.
NO PRIVACY AT ALL.
NOTHING WHATSOEVER OF YOUR OLD
LIFE.
FAISON: IF STEFAN WERE ANY
SORT OF A SON, HE WOULD AT LEAST
HAVE HIRED A MALE NURSE.
YOU KNOW, BIG MUSCLES.
LIKE YOUR MASSEUR.
FAISON: YOU KNOW WHAT
YOU REMIND ME OF?
MY LONG-LOST EMILIA --
A DOG I HAD WHEN I WAS
A LITTLE BOY.
AND SHE WAS NEVER HAPPY UNLESS
I HAD A TREAT IN MY POCKET
FOR HER.
SOMEHOW SHE ALWAYS KNEW.
FAISON: YES.
THE ANTIDOTE YOUR SON'S
SO DETERMINED TO KEEP FROM YOU.
I HAD TO DO A BAD THING.
FOR A GOOD REASON, THOUGH.
I STOLE IT FROM THE CLINIC
IN SWITZERLAND WHERE HE HAD IT
DEVELOPED.
BUT I HAVE A MEATIER PROBLEM
HERE -- I DON'T KNOW HOW
TO TEST IT.
AND ITS CONSTITUENT DRUGS ARE
QUITE DANGEROUS, AND I DON'T
REALLY KNOW IF THE CHEMIST PUT
IT ALL TOGETHER THE RIGHT WAY.
SO,
WILL IT CURE YOU
OR KILL YOU?

BOBBIE: WHO ARE YOU
LOOKING FOR?
OH.
ELIZABETH, I'LL BE IN
THE KITCHEN IF YOU NEED ME.
ELIZABETH: OK.
HELLO, MR. CASSADINE.
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE?
STEFAN: A MOMENT
OF YOUR TIME.
I REALIZE WE KNOW EACH OTHER
ONLY DISTANTLY, BUT I'M AWARE
OF HOW IMPORTANT YOU ARE
TO NIKOLAS.
ELIZABETH: WE'RE GOOD
FRIENDS, YES.
STEFAN: WELL, THEN YOU HAVE
PROBABLY SEEN WHAT I HAVE
SEEN -- THAT SOMETHING IS
TROUBLING HIM.
MISS WEBBER, THERE IS NOTHING
I WOULD NOT DO FOR MY SON.
BUT I CAN'T HELP HIM IF I DON'T
KNOW WHERE TO START.
ELIZABETH: THERE'S NO ONE
NIKOLAS LOVES AND RESPECTS MORE
THAN YOU.
IF THERE'S SOMETHING HE NEEDS
TO CONFIDE, I'M SURE HE WILL
WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT.
STEFAN: I'M SURE NIKOLAS
APPRECIATES YOUR LOYALTY.
NIKOLAS: WHY?
SOMEONE ASKING HER TO BE
DISLOYAL?

KATHERINE: SOMETHING LIGHT
AND AIRY, CHEERFUL,
A LOT OF GREENERY, YOU KNOW?
THE PORT CHARLES HOTEL IS
NO PLACE TO RAISE A CHILD.
GREAT.
GREAT.
I'LL BE BY LATER TO TAKE A LOOK
AT THE LISTINGS.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
MY REALTOR.
I HOPE YOU DON'T MIND.
DR. KALE: OF COURSE NOT.
IN FACT, IF YOU HAVE OTHER CALLS
TO MAKE --
KATHERINE: NO. PLEASE.
NO, YOU'VE BEEN VERY KIND.
NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT TO ME
THAN MY TEST RESULTS.
HOW'S THE BABY DOING?
DR. KALE: I AM SORRY TO HAVE
TO TELL YOU -- THE PROCEDURE WAS
NOT A SUCCESS.
KATHERINE: I DON'T
UNDERSTAND.
IN WHAT SENSE?
DR. KALE: THERE IS NO BABY.
YOU'RE NOT PREGNANT.

MIKE: HEY, LISTEN, THANKS.
I'LL GET THIS TO YOU AS SOON
AS I CAN, MAYBE EVEN TONIGHT.
SEE, THERE'S THIS LADY
AT THE TRACK WHO NEEDS TO STOP
WASTING MY MONEY.
JASON: OK, MIKE.
MIKE: WHAT DO YOU MEAN, "OK"?
YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO SAY,
"WHAT LADY?"
AND THEN I SAY --
JASON: AND THEN YOU SAY,
"THE ONE WHO WEARS IRON SHOES."
MIKE: WHAT?

MIKE: I THOUGHT THEY WERE
IN HAWAII.
JASON: YEAH, THEY WERE.
NOW THEY'RE BACK.
MIKE: YEAH, WELL,
AREN'T YOU GOING TO SAY HELLO?
JASON: MICHAEL'S WITH HER.
MIKE: YEAH.
THAT'S WHO I FIGURED YOU'D WANT
TO SAY HELLO TO.

A.J.: HEY, HEY, HEY.
CARLY: HEY.
THERE'S YOUR DADDY.
A.J.: HOW'S IT GOING,
LITTLE MAN?
CARLY: HI, DADDY.
A.J.: HI, YOU.
CARLY: HOW YOU DOING?
A.J.: GOOD, GOOD.
CARLY: HOW BAD WAS IT
AT THE OFFICE?
A.J.: HOPELESS.
CARLY: REALLY?
A.J.: MM-HMM.
CARLY: BUT YOU CAME ANYWAY.
I'M SHOCKED.
A.J.: THAT PROMISE I MADE
TO YOU IN HAWAII -- I MEANT IT.
E.L.Q. IS IMPORTANT, BUT NOT
AS IMPORTANT AS MY WIFE
AND MY SON.
CARLY: WELL, I THINK
YOUR LITTLE SON HERE IS GOING
TO NEED A NAP AFTER ALL.
A.J.: WELL, HERE.
I'LL TAKE HIM HOME.
CARLY: REALLY?
A.J.: YEAH. HERE.
COME ON, LITTLE MAN.
CARLY: OK.
A.J.: LET'S GO FOR A RIDE.
YOU PROBABLY WANT TO CATCH UP
WITH BOBBIE, RIGHT?
CARLY: WELL, I WOULDN'T MIND,
YOU KNOW, GETTING THOSE PICTURES
TO HER THAT WE TOOK OF MICHAEL.
THAT WOULD BE GREAT.
A.J.: YEAH.
HEY, HOW ARE YOU ADJUSTING
TO THE TIME ZONE, LITTLE MAN,
HUH?
CARLY: I THINK HE MISSES
THE OCEAN, ACTUALLY.
A.J.: WHEN HE GETS A LITTLE
OLDER, WE'LL BUY HIM ONE.
COME ON.
CARLY: THANK YOU.
A.J.: MM-HMM.
HOME WE GO.

MIKE: THEY'RE LEAVING, JASON.
I MEAN, WHAT'S GOING ON?
JASON: THIS WAY IS BETTER.
MIKE: WELL, COULD YOU PICK
THE PERSON IT'S BETTER
FOR BECAUSE I CAN'T PICK HIM OUT
MYSELF.
JASON: IT'S THE EASIEST WAY
FOR MICHAEL, AND THAT'S ALL THAT
COUNTS.
MIKE: EASY HOW?
THE KID WORSHIPS YOU.
JASON: I CAN'T DROP
IN AND OUT OF HIS LIFE ALL
THE TIME, MI.
IT'S TOO HARD FOR HIM.
SO I MADE THE DECISION TO STAY
AWAY.
THAT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO DO,
JUST LIKE SONNY'S GOING TO DO
WITH JUAN.
MIKE: OH, NOW, WAIT A MINUTE.
I HOPE YOU'RE ONLY BRINGING
SONNY UP AS A COMPARISON,
NOT AS A REASON FOR WHY YOU'RE
DOING THIS.
BECAUSE OTHERWISE YOU HAVE
PICKED THE WRONG ROLE MODEL,
MY FRIEND.
YOU START FALLING INTO SONNY'S
LOGIC, AND YOU'RE GOING TO CUT
YOUR LEGS OFF SO NOBODY WILL
BREAK YOUR KNEECAPS.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THIS
TO YOURSELF.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO LEAVE THAT
LITTLE BOY BEHIND.
YOU MADE THAT RULE UP YOURSELF.
JASON: NOBODY THINKS I KNOW
WHAT I'M DOING UNLESS I'M DOING
WHAT THEY WANT ME TO.
AND YOU'RE NO DIFFERENT.
I THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING
TO THE TRACK.

BOBBIE: HERE'S YOUR
PAYCHECK --
ELIZABETH: AH, THANK YOU.
BOBBIE: WHICH I FREELY ADMIT
SHOULD BE LARGER IF YOU HAVE
TO PUT UP WITH STEFAN CASSADINE
ON A REGULAR BASIS.
ELIZABETH: SEE YOU LATER.
BOBBIE: BYE.
ELIZABETH: BYE, NIKOLAS.
NIKOLAS: BYE, ELIZABETH.
STEFAN: WHEN THERE WAS
NO ANSWER AT THE COTTAGE,
I THOUGHT I MIGHT FIND YOU HERE.
NIKOLAS: I THOUGHT I ASKED
WHAT YOU WANTED WITH ELIZABETH.
STEFAN: INFORMATION ABOUT
YOU.
NIKOLAS: SOMETHING
YOU COULDN'T HAVE ASKED ME
IN PRIVATE?
STEFAN: I'VE TRIED,
BUT YOU WON'T TELL ME THE TRUTH.
NIKOLAS: ABOUT?
STEFAN: NIKOLAS, I KNOW
SOMETHING IS WEIGHING ON YOU.
YOU SAY NO.
I DON'T KNOW HOW TO PURSUE IT
WITHOUT CALLING YOU A LIAR
AND CAUSING AN ARGUMENT.
I AM SORRY FOR PRYING,
WHICH I AGREE IS DISTASTEFUL.
YOU SHOULD KNOW MISS WEBBER TOLD
ME NOTHING.
NIKOLAS: I SHOULD BE THE ONE
TO APOLOGIZE.
I DON'T EVER WANT YOU TO STOP
THINKING ABOUT ME, CARING
ABOUT ME.
AND MAKING YOU WORRY WASN'T
A PART OF MY GOAL.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
THERE ARE SOME DECISIONS THAT
I'M HAVING TO GRAPPLE
WITH AND --
BUT THAT'S PERSONAL, PRIVATE.
I WANT TO KEEP IT THAT WAY
FOR NOW.
STEFAN: DOES THAT MEAN THAT
THERE WILL COME A TIME WHEN
YOU'LL FEEL YOU CAN CONFIDE IT
TO ME?
NIKOLAS: THERE WILL COME
A TIME WHERE I WON'T HAVE
A CHOICE.

MAC: HI, BOBBIE.
BOBBIE: HI, MAC.
DON'T SEE YOU IN HERE MUCH THIS
HOUR OF THE DAY.
MAC: WELL, THEY LET ME OUT
EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE TO STRETCH
MY LEGS.
LISTEN, I JUST THOUGHT
YOU SHOULD KNOW FELICIA TOOK
THE GIRLS ON A TRIP TO TEXAS.
SHE'LL BE BACK IN A COUPLE
OF DAYS, BUT SHE'S LEAVING MAXIE
AND GEORGIE WITH MARIAH.
BOBBIE: NOW?
WHEN SCHOOL'S JUST ABOUT
TO START?
MAC: FAISON'S BACK.
FELICIA SAW HIM WITH MAXIE
IN THE PARK, AND SHE
FLIPPED OUT.
BOBBIE: MAXIE?
MY GOD.
MAC: BUT THAT'S -- NOTHING
HAPPENED.
CORRECTION -- EXACTLY WHAT
FAISON WANTED TO HAPPEN
HAPPENED.
FELICIA LAUNCHED HERSELF
AT HIM -- I MEAN, FISTS FLYING.
YOU KNOW, SHE'S BECOME
AS OBSESSED WITH THAT SCUM
AS SHE KEEPS ACCUSING ME
OF BEING.
I DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS IS GOING
TO LEAD.

ELIZABETH: HEY.
JASON: HI.
ELIZABETH: I'M SORRY
IF I SEEMED WEIRD WHEN
YOU STOPPED BY KELLY'S THIS
MORNING.
JASON: I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN
WHAT YOU ASKED ME NOT
TO MENTION, IF THAT'S WHAT
YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT.
ELIZABETH: OH, KATHERINE?
NO, NO, NO.
I KNEW YOU WOULDN'T FORGET.
IT'S JUST --
I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO ACT AROUND
YOU, YOU KNOW?
YOU'RE NOT JUST EMILY'S BROTHER
ANYMORE.
ARE YOU WAITING FOR SOMEBODY?
JASON: NO.
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW, I WAS
THINKING ABOUT IT, AND YOU'RE
RIGHT.
I'VE BEEN SO FIXATED
ON RESENTING KATHERINE
AND WISHING THAT I WAS THE ONE
THAT WAS GOING TO HAVE THE BABY
INSTEAD.
BUT IT'S JUST LIKE YOU SAID --
A CHILD'S A PERSON,
NOT A REMINDER.
AND BEING A PARENT IS SOMETHING
I CAN'T EVEN PRETEND I KNOW HOW
TO DO.
JASON: YEAH, I KNOW.
I KNOW THE FEELING.
ELIZABETH: BUT YOU'VE
DONE IT.
JASON: NOT BECAUSE
I KNEW HOW.
ELIZABETH: MICHAEL'S MOTHER
WAS GONE FOR A LONG TIME,
WASN'T SHE?
JASON: YEAH.
YEAH, SHE WAS.
AND SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO,
EITHER.
SO IT WAS MY JOB TO FEED MICHAEL
AND TO PUT HIM TO BED AND MAKE
SURE NOBODY TOOK HIM
OR HURT HIM.
AND I THOUGHT I WOULD BE ABLE
TO DO JUST THAT MUCH --
YOU KNOW, JUST MAKE SURE THAT
HE IS OK UNTIL HIS MOTHER CAME
HOME.
I DIDN'T -- I DIDN'T KNOW
I WOULD TURN OUT TO KNOW THINGS
THAT NOBODY TAUGHT ME.
IMPORTANT THINGS LIKE --
LIKE WHEN SOMEBODY HURTS
AND CAN'T LET YOU KNOW
OR WHEN THEY'RE LONELY OR WHEN
THEY WANT TO LOOK OUT THE WINDOW
OR WHEN THEY JUST --
JUST WANT TO HEAR SOMEBODY'S
VOICE.
MICHAEL NEEDED A LOT.
BUT I ALWAYS KNEW THAT.
NOBODY HAD TO TELL ME.
AND WHATEVER HE NEEDED, I GOT IT
FOR HIM.
HOW WAS I ABLE TO DO THAT?
I'LL TELL YOU, I WASN'T THE SAME
PERSON ANYMORE.
SUDDENLY I WAS THIS GUY WHO
COULD DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING
IF I HAD TO.
ELIZABETH: DO YOU SUPPOSE
THAT'S WHAT LOVE IS?
BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED
TO ME WITH LUCKY.
YOU KNOW, I THOUGHT I COULD DO
ANYTHING.
AND NOW THAT HE'S GONE, I WONDER
WHAT MADE ME THINK THAT.

ALAN: OH, I'M GOING TO FRAME
THIS PICTURE OF MICHAEL.
A.J.: OH, YEAH.
YEAH, THAT'S A GOOD ONE.
COUPLE OF --
COUPLE OF CARLY IN THERE THAT
I'D LIKE TO BLOW UP
TO POSTER SIZE.
ALAN: HMM.
A.J.: UH-UH --
I DON'T THINK YOU'RE OLD ENOUGH
TO LOOK AT THAT.
ALAN: YOU SOUND LIKE YOU'RE
DOING PRETTY WELL WITH
YOUR FAMILY, HUH?
A.J.: YOU KNOW, I JUST --
I JUST BROUGHT MY SON HOME,
PUT HIM DOWN FOR HIS NAP
WITHOUT A SINGLE WAIL OF PROTEST
FROM HIM.
I THINK HE'S FINALLY FIGURED OUT
THAT HE'S SAFE WITH ME.
ALAN: AND ARE YOU FEELING
SAFE WITH CARLY?
A.J.: I'M GLAD I INSISTED
ON THAT TRIP.
YOU KNOW, SHE NEEDS TO KNOW THAT
SHE MEANS MORE TO ME THAN
E.L.Q., MORE THAN THE FACT THAT
SHE GAVE ME A SON.
SO, YES, MY MARRIAGE IS
DEFINITELY WORKING --
WHICH IS MORE THAN I CAN SAY
FOR NED AND CHLOE.
ALAN: OH, YOU'VE BEEN
LISTENING TO YOUR GRANDFATHER.
A.J.: YEAH, WELL, FOR ONCE,
GRANDFATHER IS RIGHT.
I MEAN, LET'S FACE IT -- NED'S
JUST TRYING TO STEAL MY THUNDER.
I'M SURE HE'S BUSILY TRYING
TO USE CHLOE'S NAME AND SUCCESS
TO BUILD L&B INTO SOMETHING
TO COME BACK AT ME AND
E.L.Q. WITH, WHICH IS LAUGHABLE.
BUT LET'S FACE IT -- NED'S NEVER
BEEN A GRACIOUS LOSER.
ALAN: TRUE ENOUGH.
A.J.: BUT WHAT DO I CARE?
HE CAN'T TOUCH ME.
EVEN HIS INSULTS SOUND PATHETIC.
I HAVE IT ALL.
ME, THE BLACK SHEEP.
AND NOBODY IS GOING TO TAKE IT
AWAY FROM ME.
NOBODY.

BOBBIE: HEY, DON'T CRUSH
MY ORCHIDS.
CARLY: GOD!
SHE'S REALLY HAPPY TO SEE ME.
SHE'S JUST PRETENDING NOT
TO GIVE A DAMN.
MAC: WELL, I'LL LET YOU TWO
CATCH UP.
WELCOME HOME.
CARLY: THANK YOU.
BOBBIE: I'LL GIVE FELICIA
A CALL LATER.
MAC: JUST TELL HER I WAS
DOING MY HUSBANDLY DUTY.
BYE.
EXCUSE ME.
STEFAN: YES, COMMISSIONER?
MAC: HAVE YOU EVER HEARD
OF A MAN NAMED CESAR FAISON?
BOBBIE: O PICKED
YOUR BATHING SUIT, HUGH HEFNER?
CARLY: MY HUSBAND.
DID YOU SEE THIS?
LOOK AT THIS.
MICHAEL WITH HIS LITTLE HAT
AND SUNGLASSES.
BOBBIE: AW, LOOK AT HIM.
LOOKS LIKE HE'S HAVING THE TIME
OF HIS LIFE.
CARLY: HE WAS.
WE ALL DID, REALLY.
I MEAN, MICHAEL LOVED
THE BEACHES AND THE WATER
AND EVERYTHING, AND A.J. WAS
THE PERFECT
TOUR GUIDE/ROMANTIC PARTNER.
BOBBIE: HMM.
AND YOU?
WHAT WERE YOU?
CARLY: HAWAII'S REALLY
PARADISE, YOU KNOW.
BOBBIE: CARLY?
CARLY: I'VE NEVER BEEN
ANYPLACE THAT ROMANTIC,
YOU KNOW?
SO IF EVERY SUNSET AND EVERY
BEACH MADE ME THINK OF JASON,
SO WHAT?
DIDN'T HURT ANYBODY.
I WAS THE ONLY PERSON WHO KNEW.
WE JUST NEVER HAD ANYTHING LIKE
THAT, YOU KNOW?
WE NEVER HAD VACATIONS
AND MOONLIGHT AND ROMANTIC
DINNERS OR WALKS ON THE --
WE NEVER HAD THE ENJOYABLE
THINGS, YOU KNOW, THE EASY ONES.
ONLY THE HARD STUFF.
IT JUST DOESN'T SEEM FAIR.
ANYWAY, I'M DONE.
YOU CAN YELL AT ME NOW.
BOBBIE: HONEY, I UNDERSTAND.
CARLY: SINCE WHEN?
BOBBIE: I NEVER BROUGHT THIS
UP BEFORE BECAUSE I ALWAYS
FIGURED, WHAT WAS THE POINT?
BUT I HAD A JASON ONCE.

MIKE: JUAN, WAIT UP.
LOOK, YOU DON'T KNOW ME,
BUT I --
JUAN: YEAH, I DO.
YOU'RE SONNY'S FATHER.
MIKE: RIGHT. RIGHT.
YOU SEE, I THINK IT'S TIME THAT
SOMEBODY SET YOU STRAIGHT ABOUT
A FEW THINGS, AND I'VE ELECTED
MYSELF.

STEFAN: I ONLY KNOW THE NAME
BECAUSE I REMEMBER SEEING IT
ON A TITLE COMPANY'S REPORT WHEN
I PURCHASED WYNDEMERE.
MAC: RIGHT.
FAISON ONCE OWNED IT.
STEFAN: I WAS ALSO INFORMED
OF AN UNSAVORY REPUTATION
ATTACHED TO THE NAME.
A FREELANCE ESPIONAGE AGENT.
DANGEROUS, EXPENSIVE, DECEASED.
MAC: ALL BUT THE LAST.
CESAR FAISON IS VERY MUCH ALIVE
AND BACK IN PORT CHARLES.
STEFAN: WELL, I HAD THE DEED
TO THE PROPERTY THOROUGHLY
RESEARCHED.
HE CAN MAKE NO LEGAL CLAIM
AGAINST ME, I ASSURE YOU.
MAC: STILL, IF HE MAKES
CONTACT WITH YOU FOR ANY REASON,
PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
STEFAN: OF COURSE,
IF YOU THINK IT WILL BE OF USE.
MAC: THANK YOU.
STEFAN: WHAT POSSIBLE REASON
WOULD THIS FAISON HAVE
TO CONTACT ME?
NIKOLAS: MAYBE NONE, BUT HE'S
BEEN IN TOUCH WITH LAURA.

FAISON: SO, DO I DARE?
I GUESS I MUST.
IT'S OUR ONLY HOPE, ISN'T IT?
BUT WHAT IF IT MERELY DOES
YOU FURTHER HARM?
IMAGINE THAT CHEMIST I HIRED
LEFT OUT SOME VITAL ELEMENT
THE FORMULA AND YOU FAIL
TO SURVIVE.
ARE YOU WILLING TO CHANCE
ON THAT?
I'M SORRY, HELENA.
I WON'T.
I JUST CAN'T DO IT.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
I THINK I'LL CONTACT THAT
CHEMIST AND SEE IF I CAN TRICK
HIM INTO TELLING ME EXACTLY HOW
HE PREPARED THE ANTIDOTE.
I MEAN, JUST TO BE SURE.
RIGHT?
AFTER ALL, WE WON'T HAVE
A SECOND CHANCE, WILL WE?

KATHERINE: I WAS SO SURE I --
I COULD FEEL THE BABY INSIDE ME.
DR. KALE: WELL, AS I TOLD
YOU THAT FIRST DAY, IT'S NOT
UNUSUAL FOR A FIRST IN VITRO
ATTEMPT TO BE UNSUCCESSFUL.
BUT THE LIKELIHOOD OF SUCCESS
GOES UP WITH EACH ATTEMPT.
THERE'S EVERY REASON TO BELIEVE
THAT IN TIME YOU --
KATHERINE: I DON'T HAVE TIME.
HAVEN'T I MADE THAT CLEAR?
WHEN CAN WE TRY AGAIN?
DR. KALE: RIGHT AWAY.
KATHERINE: I WANT EVERY TEST
IN THE BOOK RUN ON ME.
I WANT TO FIND OUT WHAT WENT
WRONG SO IT DOESN'T HAPPEN NEXT
TIME.
I DON'T CARE WHAT IT COSTS
OR WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO.
I HAVE TO BE PREGNANT.

NIKOLAS: WHEN LAURA
DISCOVERED THIS FAISON WAS UNDER
AN ASSUMED NAME, SHE RETURNED
THE MONEY AND TOOK LESLEY LU OUT
OF TOWN UNTIL LUKE GOT BACK.
STEFAN: SHE SAID NOTHING
OF ANY OF THIS TO ME.
NIKOLAS: HE DIDN'T MAKE
AN ACTUAL THREAT.
SHE DIDN'T WANT TO RISK
YOUR MAKING AN ENEMY OF THIS MAN
WITH NO REASON.
STEFAN: I WILL HAVE A REASON
IF HE EVER GOES NEAR YOUR MOTHER
AGAIN.
NIKOLAS: THIS IS WHY LAURA
KEPT IT TO HERSELF.
STEFAN: SHE TOLD YOU.
NIKOLAS: ONLY WHEN
SHE HAD TO.
SHE WANTED ME TO GO WITH THEM
TO NORTH CAROLINA, AND NATURALLY
I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND.
STEFAN: IF SHE BELIEVES THAT
YOU COULD BE IN DANGER,
TOO, THEN --
NIKOLAS: FATHER -- I'M NOT.
AND IF THIS FAISON COMES NEAR,
I WILL TELL YOU.
DON'T MAKE ME SORRY I CONFIDED
IN YOU.

MIKE: AND IN THE END,
SONNY TRIED TO DO RIGHT
BY YOUR MOTHER.
JUAN: IN THE END?
MISTER, SHE DIED.
WHY ARE YOU EVEN BOTHERING?
MIKE: LOOK --
YOU THINK YOU KNOW MY SON
AND YOU THINK YOU KNOW WHAT HE'S
DONE, BUT BELIEVE ME, YOU ONLY
KNOW WHAT SONNY WANTS
YOU TO THINK.
HE NEVER WOULD HAVE WALKED OUT
ON LILY.
JUAN: HE WAS PLANNING
ON LEAVING.
HE TOLD ME HIMSELF.
MIKE: OH, I DON'T DENY THAT
HE SAID IT.
I'M SURE THAT HE THINKS HE WOULD
HAVE DONE IT.
BUT THERE'S NO CHANCE.
AND YOU'RE LOOKING AT
THE REASON WHY.
SEE, I WALKED OUT ON SONNY'S
MOTHER.
JUAN: GREAT.
SO YOU'RE AS SCREWED UP
AS HE IS.
WHY SHOULD I CARE ABOUT EITHER
OF YOU?
MIKE: LOOK, YOU CAN WALK
AWAY.
THAT'S ALL RIGHT.
BUT WALK AWAY HATING ME AND NOT
SONNY BECAUSE IT ISN'T RIGHT
THAT LILY'S SON SHOULD HATE
THE MAN THAT SHE LOVED MORE THAN
ANYTHING --
EXCEPT FOR POSSIBLY YOU.
EXCUSE ME.

CARLY: ROY?
LIKE ROY ROGERS?
BOBBIE: OH, PLEASE.
CARLY: NO, ROY WHO?
BOBBIE: WHY DID I EVEN BRING
THIS UP?
CARLY: WHY DIDN'T YOU BRING
IT UP BEFORE?
THAT'S THE QUESTION.
BOBBIE: BECAUSE IT WAS HALF
MY LIFE AGO.
CARLY: NOW, WHAT WAS HE LIKE?
BOBBIE: CARLY --
CARLY: COME ON.
JUST TELL ME THIS ONE LITTLE
QUESTION, AND I'LL DROP IT.
BOBBIE: HE WAS WILD.
AND HE WAS NOT A GOOD PERSON
IN WAYS THAT ARE A LOT MORE
IMPORTANT TO ME NOW THAN
THEY WERE THEN.
CARLY: WHAT WAYS?
BOBBIE: THINK OF JASON.
CARLY: NO.
THERE -- NO.
THERE'S NO WAY THAT JASON'S NOT
A GOOD PERSON.
BOBBIE: YOU WANT TO CALL MAC
SCORPIO BACK, AND WE'LL GET
A SECOND OPINION?
CARLY: OH, SO ROY WAS
IN TROUBLE WITH THE POLICE.
BOBBIE: ROY WAS --
THERE WAS A GENTLENESS TO ROY,
YOU KNOW?
HE --
IT WAS LIKE A POWER TO HIM.
HE WAS REALLY SOLID.
I MEAN, HE WAS THE KIND
OF GUY -- YOU COULD HAVE HUNG
THE ROCK OF GIBRALTAR FROM HIM.
IF HE SAID IT, HE MEANT IT.
AND IF HE SAID HE WAS GOING
TO DO SOMETHING, HE DID IT.
CARLY: AND YOU LOVED HIM.
BOBBIE: YES, I DID.
CARLY: WELL, GOD,
WHAT HAPPENED?
WHY'D YOU GUYS BREAK UP?
BOBBIE: HE DIED.
CARLY: GOD.
I'M SORRY. THAT --
THAT MUST HAVE BEEN
AWFUL.
BOBBIE: AWFUL THINGS HAPPEN
TO YOU IN LIFE.
YOU GIVE THEM THEIR DUE,
AND YOU MOVE ON.
BECAUSE WHAT'S THE ALTERNATIVE?
YOU GIVE YOURSELF TIME,
AND HAPPINESS COMES BACK.
AND THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE
TO BIEVE.
CARLY: YOU KNOW WHAT?
I'M NOT EVEN LOOKING
FOR THE KIND OF HAPPINESS THAT
I USED TO THINK WAS RIGHT AROUND
THE CORNER.
I MEAN, I JUST -- PEACE
AND QUIET, A GOOD LIFE
FOR MY SON.
THAT'S --
THAT'S ENOUGH FOR ME.

ELIZABETH: I SHOULD PROBABLY
GO HOME NOW.
JASON: I'LL SEE YOU AROUND.
ELIZABETH: THANK
YOU FOR TELLING ME ABOUT
YOUR SON.
JASON: SURE.
ELIZABETH: IT SEEMS LIKE
SOMETHING I NEEDED TO KNOW,
BUT I CAN'T EXPLAIN WHY.
YOU KNOW, I -- I WOULD REALLY
LIKEO SEE YOU WITH HIM
SOMETIME.
YOU KNOW, MAYBE SOME AFTERNOON
WHEN YOU --
JASON: I DON'T SEE HIM
ANYMORE.
ELIZABETH: I DON'T
UNDERSTAND.
JASON: I HAD TO GIVE HIM UP.
I'M NOT HIS FATHER NOW.
ELIZETH: I'M SORRY.
JASON: NO, IT'S OK.
YOU DIDN'T KNOW.
NO, IT FELT GOOD TO TALK
ABOUT HIM.
AND NOBODY EVER ASKED ME THAT
BEFORE --
WHAT IT WAS LIKE TO BE A FATHER.
ELIZABETH: HEY, DO YOU HAVE
YOUR MOTORCYCLE?
JASON: NOT HERE.
ELIZABETH: OH.
BECAUSE I WAS GOING TO MAKE
YOU GIVE ME A RIDE HOME.
JASON: SO YOU LIKE RIDING
ON IT?
ELIZABETH: MM-HMM.
JASON: MAYBE ANOTHER TIME.
ELIZABETH: I MIGHT REGRET
SAYING THIS BECAUSE, YOU KNOW,
THE GREAT THING ABOUT YOU IS
THAT YOU NEVER TRY TO MAKE ME
FEEL BETTER AND EVERYBODY ALWAYS
DOES THAT TO ME, AND NOW I'M
ABOUT TO DO IT TO YOU.
JASON: OK.
ELIZABETH: AT LEAST YOU KNOW
MICHAEL'S AROUND.
YOU CAN HEAR ABOUT HIM,
WATCH HIM GROW UP FROM
A DISTANCE.
AND MAYBE SOMEDAY --
WELL, YOU NEVER KNOW, RIGHT?
JASON: YOU NEVER KNOW.
ELIZABETH: SEE YOU.

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

JAX: WELL, YOUR MESSAGE
SOUNDED LIKE AN S.O.S.
ALEXIS: I'M HAVING A CRISIS.
