JAX: I WAS TOLD MY BROTHER
WAS BROUGHT HERE FOR SURGERY.
AUDREY: OH, JAX,
I HEARD ABOUT THE ACCIDENT.
I'M TERRIBLY SORRY.
LET ME SEE WHAT I CAN FIND OUT.
JAX: OK.
HE'LL BE FINE.
THAT JERRY ALWAYS LANDS
ON HIS FEET.
CHLOE: SOME PEOPLE HAVE THAT
KNACK.
JAX: DID I EVER TELL
YOU ABOUT THE TIME HE WRECKED
AN AIRBOAT IN THE EVERGLADES?
HE FLIPPED IT DOING 30 KNOTS,
LANDED RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE
OF A HERD OF ALLIGATORS.
CHLOE: NO --
JAX: YEAH.
THE ALLIGATORS WERE SO FREAKED
OUT THEY SCATTERED IN EVERY
DIRECTION.
JERRY GOT A COUPLE OF MOSQUITO
BITES.
I TELL YOU, HE CAN'T DIE
IN SOMETHING AS MUNDANE AS A CAR
ACCIDENT, CAN HE?
NOT AFTER THAT.
CHLOE: IT'S NOT GOING
TO HAPPEN.
AUDREY: AH, EXCUSE ME.
DR. TONY JONES IS CONSULTING
ON YOUR BROTHER'S CASE.
HE SHOULD BE HERE IN JUST A FEW
MINUTES.
JAX: UM, OK.
WE WERE ALSO TOLD THAT BOBBIE
WAS IN FAIR CONDITION.
IS THAT TRUE?
AUDREY: WELL, SHE'S GOING
TO BE SORE FOR A WHILE,
BUT THANK GOD, I THINK
SHE SHOULD BE JUST FINE,
SO, PLEASE, LET ME KNOW
IF THERE'S ANYTHING MORE
YOU NEED, HMM?
JAX: THANKS.
CHLOE: IS THERE SOME PROBLEM
WITH TONY JONES?
JAX: HE'S BOBBIE'S EX.
HE INSULTED BOBBIE AT THE LAST
NURSES BALL AND JERRY DECKED
HIM.
TONY: CHLOE, JAX.
I'M SORRY ABOUT YOUR BROTHER.
JAX: WHAT'S HIS STATUS?
TONY: HE'S BEING PREPPED
FOR SURGERY RIGHT NOW,
AND I NEED A FAMILY MEMBER
TO SIGN A RELEASE.
JAX: YOU'RE NOT DOING
THE SURGERY, ARE YOU?
TONY: DR. CALETTI WILL BE
DOING THAT.
HE'S ONE OF THE FINEST SURGEONS
I'VE EVER SEEN.
JAX: MAY I SPEAK TO HIM?
TONY: HE'S ACTUALLY
SCRUBBING UP.
TIME IS A FACTOR.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS,
I'LL DO MY BEST TO ANSWER THEM.
JAX: WELL, HOW BAD IS IT?
TONY: JERRY'S LUNG CAVITY IS
FILLED WITH BLOOD.
NOW, WE'VE BEEN DRAINING IT,
BUT HE'S STILL BLEEDING HEAVILY.
IT PUTS PRESSURE ON HIS HEART
AND HIS OTHER ORGANS,
WHICH COULD BE FATAL.
JAX: ANYTHING ELSE?
TONY: HE MIGHT HAVE SOME
HEAD INJURIES.
IT'S DIFFICULT FOR US TO TELL
HOW SERIOUS THEY ARE UNTIL
WE GET THE TESTS BACK AND CAN
ASSESS THE LEVEL OF
CONSCIOUSNESS.
JAX: SO WHAT CAN BE DONE?
TONY: DR. CALETTI WILL GO
IN AND TRY TO FIND THE SOURCE
OF THE BLEEDING AND REPAIR IT.
JAX: JUST GIVE ME A NUMBER,
TONY.
WHAT ARE THE CHANCES
OF MY BROTHER COMING THROUGH
THIS ALIVE?
TONY: 50/50.
JAX: THAT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
TONY: I WISH WE COULD DO
BETTER.
IF YOU ARE GOING TO SIGN
THE FORM, I SUGGEST YOU DO IT
QUICKLY.

FAISON: YEAH, ANY WORD
FROM SPENCER YET?
NO, DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.
HE'LL MAKE THE DELIVERY ANY DAY
NOW.
WHY, SURE, HE WILL TRY
TO DOUBLE-CROSS ME.
BUT HE WON'T GET AWAY WITH IT.
HE HAS WAY TOO MUCH TO LOSE
RIGHT HERE IN PORT CHARLES.
OH, YEAH.

FELICIA: HI.
MAC: HI.
OH, IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE YOU.
MMM.
FELICIA: I CAME STRAIGHT
FROM THE AIRPORT.
YOU DIDN'T FORGET I WAS COMING
HOME TODAY, DID YOU?
MAC: UH-UH.
ARE YOU KIDDING?
LOOK AT THIS.
DID YOU SEE THIS?
LOOK.
FELICIA: "FELICIA'S COMING
HOME," UNDERLINED TWICE WITH RED
PENCIL.
MAC: IT IS ON EVERY CALENDAR
WITHIN READING DISTANCE.
FELICIA: I MISSED YOU, TOO.
THIS IS FROM MAXIE,
AND THIS IS FROM GEORGIE.
MAC: HOW ARE THEY?
FELICIA: OH, THEY'RE GREAT.
THEY'RE REALLY --
THEY'RE VERY GOOD.
ACTUALLY, THEY GET EVERYTHING
THEY ASK FOR FROM MARIA.
IT WAS VERY SMART OF
YOU TO SUGGEST THAT I GET OUT
OF TOWN FOR A LITTLE BIT.
I ACTUALLY RELAXED FOR THE FIRST
TIME IN WEEKS.
MAC: WELL, THAT WAS THE IDEA.
FELICIA: THAT P.I. THAT
YOU HIRED -- HE'S VERY GOOD.
HE'S LOW-KEY.
THEY TRUST HIM.
HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT
HE'S DOING.
MAC: LOOK, I DIDN'T THINK
FAISON WOULD FOLLOW THE GIRLS
TO TEXAS.
I MEAN, HE'S NEVER GONE AFTER
CHILDREN BEFORE.
I JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT
THEY WERE SAFE.
FELICIA: THANK YOU.
MAC: YOU'RE WELCOME.
FELICIA: WHY HAVEN'T YOU BEEN
SLEEPING?
MAC: BECAUSE THE BED
IS TOO WIDE WITHOUT YOU.
FELICIA: GOOD REASON.
MAC: MM-HMM.
FELICIA: ANY WORD IF FAISON
IS BACK IN TOWN?
MAC: THE DEPARTMENT'S ON FULL
ALERT.
AS SOON AS HE SHOWS,
WE'LL KNOW ABOUT IT.
FELICIA: WHAT ABOUT INTERPOL?
IF HE'S MOVING JEWELS
FROM EUROPE, WOULDN'T THEY KNOW
ABOUT THAT?
MAC: SO FAR NOTHING.
LISTEN, YOU JUST LEAVE FAISON
TO ME, OK?
SOONER OR LATER, HE'S GOING
TO MAKE A MISTAKE.
AND WHEN HE DOES, I'LL BE RIGHT
THERE.
TAGGERT: WELCOME HOME,
FELICIA.
COMMISSIONER, THE F.B.I. JUST
BROUGHT IN CORINTHOS.
THEY BUSTED HIM WITHOUT
INFORMING US.
MAC: NO, THEY DIDN'T.
I'VE KNOWN ABOUT IT FOR A WEEK.

CARLY: DON'T YOU SEE WHAT'S
GOING ON?
THE ONLY REASON ANY OF US ARE
HERE IS BECAUSE OF HER.
HANNAH: THIS IS NO TIME
FOR YOUR PARANOID FANTASIES.
CARLY: SHE'S NOT BEING
STRAIGHT --
HANNAH: SONNY'S IN REAL
TROUBLE HERE.
CARLY: I SAW HER,
THIS AFTERNOON, SNUGGLING UP
TO SOME GUY IN AN ALLEY.
AGENT: IF YOU'D LIKE TO MAKE
A STATEMENT, MA'AM --
CARLY: I'M MAKING IT!
SHE SOLD YOU OUT, SONNY.
HER AND HER BOYFRIEND CALLED
THE FEDS.
I'M SURE OF IT.
SONNY: THAT'S ENOUGH, CARLY.
JASON: THIS ISN'T HELPING.
CARLY: I'M NOT DONE.
THIS MAN IS INNOCENT.
THIS WOMAN, THIS WITCH,
AND HER LITTLE BOYFRIEND ARE
SETTING HIM UP.
HANNAH: YOU'RE OUT
OF YOUR MIND.
AGENT: WITH ALL DUE RESPECT,
MA'AM, THIS IS A CRIMINAL
INVESTIGATION.
WE HAVE NO INTERESTS IN LOCAL
LOVE TRIANGLES.
CARLY: IT WASN'T ENOUGH
TO CHEAT ON SONNY?
YOU HAD TO TRY TO PUT HIM
IN PRISON?

HANNAH: BACK OFF, CARLY.
THIS IS NOT THE NIGHT TO GET
IN MY FACE.
JASON: NO, NO.
THIS IS A BAD IDEA.
CARLY: YOU'RE A FAKE.
I'VE KNOWN IT SINCE THE DAY
I MET YOU, AND SOON ENOUGH
EVERYBODY ELSE WILL, TOO.
HANNAH: NO ONE'S LISTENING,
CARLY.
GO HOME TO YOUR MANSION.
JASON: CARLY, THIS IS
THE F.B.I.
JUST KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT.
OK?
I UNDERSTAND YOU WANT TO HELP
SONNY, BUT THIS IS NOT THE WAY.
CARLY: I'M RIGHT ABOUT THIS.
YOU GIVE ME A CHANCE,
I'LL GET HER TO ADMIT IT.
JASON: SONNY HAS AN ATTORNEY
RIGHT NOW, AND THAT'S ALL
THE HELP HE NEEDS.
ALEXIS: THAT'S THE MOST
SENSIBLE THING I'VE HEARD SINCE
I'VE WALKED IN THIS ROOM.
MAY I ASK WHY MRS. QUARTERMAINE
WAS BROUGHT DOWN TO THE POLICE
STATION?
AGENT: SHE ARRIVED
AT THE SITE OF A CRIMINAL
INVESTIGATION.
CARLY: AH.
AGT: SHE SEEMED TO HAVE
KNOWLEDGE OF MR. CORINTHOS.
CARLY: I STEPPED OFF
THE ELEVATOR.
SINCE WHEN IS THAT A FEDERAL
OFFENSE?
SONNY: YOU WANTED ME.
I'M HERE.
WHY DON'T YOU SEND ALL THESE
PEOPLE HOME, GET ON WITH IT?
AGENT: WE ARE RUNNING THIS
INVESTIGATION, SIR, NOT YOU.
SONNY: NONE OF THESE WOMEN
KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT MY BUSINESS.
SO WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
AGENT: WELL, WHAT
BUSINESS IS THAT?
IS THERE SOMETHING YOU'D LIKE
TO CONFESS?
SONNY: OH --
ALEXIS: MY CLIENT HAS A RIGHT
TO SPEAK TO HIS ATTORNEY
IN PRIVATE.
WE'D LIKE TO DO THAT RIGHT NOW.
AGENT: FOLLOW ME.
SONNY: GO.
HANNAH: NO, NOT WITHOUT YOU.

MAC: THE F.B.I. CAME TO ME
A WEEK AGO.
THEY SAID THEY HAD A CASE
AGAINST CORINTHOS AND WERE READY
TO MOVE.
I ASSURED THEM THAT
THE DEPARTMENT WOULD COOPERATE.
TAGGERT: WHY WASN'T
I INFORMED?
MAC: IF IT WERE ANYONE ELSE,
TAGGERT, I WOULD HAVE TOLD
YOU IMMEDIATELY.
TAGGERT: WHAT DID YOU THINK
I WAS GOING TO DO, SIR?
MAC: HEY, CORINTHOS RATTLES
YOUR JUDGMENT.
I'VE SEEN IT TOO MANY TIMES
TO TAKE THAT CHANCE.
TAGGERT: OK, LOOK,
NONE OF THAT MATTERS RIGHT NOW.
ALL THAT MATTERS IS GETTING
CORINTHOS SENT AWAY FOR GOOD.
MAC: YEAH, I COULDN'T AGREE
MORE.
BUT FIRST, WE'RE GOING TO PUT
HIM TO WORK FOR US.
TAGGERT: HOW?
FELICIA: FAISON.
ONCE FAISON STARTS MOVING JEWELS
THROUGH PORT CHARLES,
HE'S GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL
WITH SONNY.
AND IF THE F.B.I. IS WILLING
TO DO THAT, THEN MAC CAN
CONVINCE SONNY TO ROLL OVER
ON HIM.
OH, YOU'RE GOOD.
TAGGERT: WELL, ACTUALLY,
WE ALREADY TRIED THAT THROUGH
HIS GIRLFRIEND.
SHE DIDN'T EVEN GET BACK TO US.
MAC: YEAH, SONNY'S SITUATION
HAS CHANGED, THOUGH.
I MEAN, IF HE THINKS HE CAN BUY
HIS IMMUNITY BY ROLLING OVER
ON FAISON, HE'LL DO IT
IN A MINUTE.
FELICIA: DO YOU THINK
THE F.B.I. WOULD BE WILLING
TO GO ALONG WITH THAT?
MAC: WE'LL FIND OUT SOON
ENOUGH.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
DARA: HI.
MAC: HI.
TAGGERT: HEY.
DARA: YOU WANTED TO SEE ME?
MAC: YEAH.
WE'RE ABOUT TO MAKE A DEAL
WITH THE F.B.I.
I WANT YOU TO BROKER IT.

JAX: EVERYTHING YOU'VE SAID
INDICATETHE OPERATION
IS HIGH-RISK.
I WANT TO KNOW IF THERE'S
AN ALTERNATIVE.
TONY: JERRY NEEDS THE SURGERY
TO SURVIVE.
THE ONLY QUESTION IS WHEN
WE DO IT.
JAX: JUST GIVE ME THE PROS
AND CONS.
TONY: HE'S STILL IN TRAUMA.
HE MIGHT NOT MAKE IT THROUGH
THE SURGERY.
JAX: WELL, THEN WE'LL WAIT.
TONY: WE COULD LEAVE HIM
IN I.C.U. AND HOPE THAT
HE STABILIZES, BUT IT'S NOT
THE CHOICE THAT I WOULD MAKE.
JAX: MEANING WHAT?
CHLOE: IF JAX DECIDES
TO WAIT, WHAT ARE THE CHANCES
THAT JERRY WILL STABILIZE?
TONY: SLIM TO NONE.
IF IT WAS MY OWN BROTHER,
I WOULD OPERATE AS SOON
AS POSSIBLE.
JAX: OK.
MY PARENTS ARE STILL BACK
AT THE HOTEL.
IS MY SIGNATURE ENOUGH?
TONY: YES.
JAX: OH, I WANT TO SEE HIM
BEFORE HE GOES IN.
TONY: HE'S UNCONSCIOUS, JAX.Z6
HE WON'T KNOW YOU.
JAX: YES, HE WILL.
TONY: IT'S A MATTER OF TIME.
THE SOONER WE OPERATE,
THE BETTER HIS CHANCES.
JAX: ALL RIGHT, TELL
DR. CALETTI --
JUST TAKE CARE OF HIM, OK?
CHLOE: YOU MADE THE RIGHT
DECISION.
JAX: NOT IF MY BROTHER DIES.

CHLOE: DO YOU WANT
A SANDWICH?
JAX: HUH?
NO, THANKS.
CHLOE: GOOD.
THEN I MADE THE RIGHT DECISION.
JAX: WHEN IN DOUBT,
CHOCOLATE, HUH?
THANKS.
CHLOE: MIGHT MAKE YOU FEEL
BETTER IF YOU ACTUALLY ATE IT.
JAX: YEAH.
CHLOE: WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO
GET SOME AIR?
JAX: I'M SORRY, CHLOE.
IT'S BEEN A LONG NIGHT ALREADY.
IF YOU WANT TO GO HOME,
I'LL UNDERSTAND.
CHLOE: JAX,
IF THE SITUATION WERE REVERSED,
WOULD YOU STAY WITH ME?
JAX: THANKS.
DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN I WAS
TALKING TO YOU ABOUT HOW THINGS
HAPPEN SUDDENLY, WITHOUT
WARNING?
WELL, IT'S WEIRD, ISN'T IT?
JUST TWO HOURS AGO, JERRY AND I
WERE SITTING IN A RESTAURANT.
YOU KNOW, AND HE WAS ASKING ME
QUESTIONS ABOUT MY WEDDING
TO ALEXIS AND GENERALLY BUTTING
IN WHERE I DIDT WANT HIM.
NOW HE'S ON AN OPERATING TABLE
FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE.
I MEAN, WHAT'S NEXT?
DO I G HOME AND FIND A MESSAGE
ON MY ANSWERING MACHINE,
TELLING ME THAT HE LOVES ME?
CHLOE: HE IS NOT GONE YET.
JAX, YOU SAID YOURSELF HE ALWAYS
PULLS THROUGH.
JAX: TONY GAVE HIM
A 50/50 CHANCE, OK?
THAT'S A COIN FLIP, CHLOE.
HEADS, YOU LIVE, AND TAILS,
YOU DON'T.
CHLOE: BUT WHERE
YOU AND JERRY ARE CONCERNED,
ODDS DON'T MATTER.
I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU BELIEVE
IN HIM, JAX, AND SO DOES JERRY.
AND HE MAY BE UNCONSCIOUS,
ON A TABLE RIGHT NOW,
BUT HE KNOWS THAT YOU ARE
EXPECTING HIM TO LIVE.
AND THAT KNOWLEDGE IS GOING
TO GIVE HIM THE STRENGTH
AND THE COURAGE TO SURVIVE.
JAX: YEAH.
YOU KNOW, JERRY HAS PROBABLY
FOUGHT FOR HIS LIFE MORE TIMES
THAN ANY PERSON IN MODERN
HISTORY.
AND BEFORE BOBBIE, HE SEEMED
TO BE DOING IT EVERY COUPLE
OF MONTHS.
CHLOE: WHY DON'T YOU
TELL ME ABOUT SOME OF THOSE
TIMES THAT HE PULLED THROUGH.
JAX: OH, THERE WERE SO MANY.
I MEAN, THE KIDNAPPINGS,
THE PLANE CRASHES,
THE EXPLOSIONS.
A LOT OF EXPLOSIONS.
ONE TIME -- ONE TIME HE FELL OFF
A CLIFF ROCK-CLIMBING AND LANDED
ON THIS LEDGE THE SIZE
A FRISBEE.
AND HE HUNG ON THERE
FOR TWO DAYS UNTIL THE RESCUE
CREW FINALLY SPOTTED HIM.
YOU KNOW, MY MOTHER ALWAYS SAID
THAT JERRY'S FIRST WORDS WERE
"NEVER SAY DIE."
YEAH.
MY BROTHER'S UNCONQUERABLE,
CHLOE.
HE'LL GET THROUGH THIS.
AND NEXT MONTH IT'LL B
SOMETHING ELSE.
THAT'S HOW IT'S ALWA BEEN.
AND THAT'S HOW IT'LL STAY.

DARA: I'VE READ ALL
YOUR MEMOS CONCERNING FAISON.
HE'S CLEARLY DANGEROUS
AND SHOULD BE OFF THE STREETS,
BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN
THE F.B.I. WILL MAKE A DEAL.
MAC: FINE. FINE.
IF YOU WON'T APPROACH THEM,
I'LL SPEAK TO JUSTUS.
DARA: DON'T PUT WORDS IN MY
MOUTH.
I WOULD BE GLAD TO APPROACH
THE F.B.I. ABOUT USING SONNY
TO TRAP FAISON.
WHAT I'M TELLING YOU IS I DOUBT
THAT THEY WILL GO ALONG.
FELICIA: WHY NOT?
DARA: WHEN THE F.B.I. ARRESTS
SOMEONE LIKE SONNY,
IT'S USUALLY A CULMINATION
OF MONTHS OF WORK.
THEY PROBABLY HAVE BOXES
OF EVIDENCE AGAINST HIM.
WHAT WOULD BE THE POINT
OF GIVING HIM A WAY OUT?
MAC: TO PUT A KNOWN KILLER
BEHIND BARS!
DARA: I'M SORRY, MAC.
WHAT YOU HAVE ON FAISON NOW IS
LITTLE MORE THAN SPECULATION.
MAC: THE MAN MURDERED
MY BROTHER AND HIS WIFE.
HE'S TERRORIZING FELICIA
AND OUR DAUGHTERS.
THAT'S NOT SPECULATION, DARA.
THAT'S A FACT.
DARA: WELL, HAS HE BROKEN ANY
LAWS?
FELICIA: HE'S BEEN FENCING
STOLEN JEWELS.
DARA: DO YOU HAVE ANY
EVIDENCE?
FELICIA: NOT YET.
DARA: PROOF?
MAC: WE WILL GET IT.
WE'LL GET IT.
TAGGERT: AS SOMEWHAT
OF AN EXPERT ON THE SUBJECT
OF GOING BEYOND REASONABLE
LIMITS TO TAKE SOMEBODY DOWN,
I'D HATE TO SEE YOU GO THAT
ROUTE, COMMISSIONER.
MAC: IF I WANT YOUR OPINION,
TAGGERT, I'LL ASK FOR IT.
FELICIA: TAGGERT IS RIGHT.
THE BEST WAY TO MAKE SOMETHING
STICK AGAINST FAISON IS TO DO IT
BY THE BOOK.
DARA: I WILL TALK
TO THE F.B.I. TO SEE IF THEY'RE
OPEN TO A DEAL.
IF THEY ARE, WE WILL DISCUSS
THE DETAILS LATER, OK?
MAC: THANK YOU.
DARA: LT. TAGGERT?
TAGGERT: AHEM -- YEAH.
DARA: I COULD USE SOME
DEBRIEFING, IF YOU DON'T MIND.
TAGGERT: OH, THAT --
THAT'D BE MY PLEASURE.
MAC: OK.
I WAS OUT OF CONTROL.
FELICIA: YOU THINK SO?
MAC: HMM.
WHEN TAGGERT TELLS YOU TO CHILL,
YOU KNOW IT'S BAD.
FELICIA: WHEN I LEFT TOWN,
YOU SAID TO ME THAT YOU'RE NOT
GOING TO LET THIS MAN WIN.
AND I STILL BELIEVE YOU.
WITH OR WITHOUT SONNY CORINTHOS,
YOU'RE GOING TO PUT THIS MAN
IN JAIL.
DO YOU HEAR ME?
MAC: I DON'T KNOW WHAT I'D DO
WITHOUT YOU.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
TAGGERT: I'M SORRY.
SORRY TO INTERRUPT YOU, SIR.
THOUGHT YOU MIGHT WANT TO SEE
THIS.
SORRY.
FELICIA: MAC?
MAC: BOBBIE'S BEEN HURT.

CARLY: THEY DON'T REALLY HAVE
ANYTHING ON SONNY, DO THEY?
I MEAN, THEY'RE JUST HASSLING
HIM.
JASON: I DON'T KNOW.
CARLY: YOU SAYING HE MIGHT GO
TO JAIL?
WHAT ABOUT YOU, JASE?
JASON: CARLY, WE'RE NOT
DISCUSSING THAT RIGHT NOW.
CARLY: NO.
YOU'RE NOT GOING TO JAIL.
TELL ME WHAT TO SAY.
I'LL BE YOUR ALIBI.
JASON: YOU KNOW WHAT?
I DON'T WANT AN ALIBI.
HOW YOU CAN HELP RIGHT NOW IS
BY GOING HOME.
CARLY: OH. OH, YEAH.
YOU WANT ME TO GO PLAY HOUSE
WITH A.J. --
DAMN IT.
OH, MY GOD.
I TOLD A.J. I WAS WITH MY MOM
HOURS AGO.
DO YOU THINK THE FEDS WILL CALL
HIM AND TELL HIM WHERE I AM?
JASON: I HAVE NO IDEA.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
CARLY: IT'S PROBABLY HIM.
HELLO.
CARLY: WHERE IS SHE?
YEAH, I'LL BE RIGHT THERE.
MY MOM WAS IN A CAR ACCIDENT.
I GOT TO GO.

ALEXIS: MY CLIENT INTENDS
TO COOPERATE FULLY, BUT I CAN'T
LET HIM MAKE A STATEMENT UNTIL
I MEET WITH HIM IN PRIVATE.
AGENT: TAKE YOUR TIME.
SONNY: SINCE WHEN AM
I YOUR CLIENT?
ALEXIS: IF YOU'D RATHER GET
SOMEONE ELSE, THAT'S PERFECTLY
FINE WITH ME.
SONNY: OH, NO.
YOU'RE THE BEST I'VE EVER SEEN.
ALL I NEED TO KNOW IS YOU'RE
IN IT TO THE END.
ALEXIS: AND ALL I NEED
TO KNOW IS THAT I'M REPRESENTING
AN INNOCENT MAN.

SONNY: YOU WANT ME TO SWEAR
THAT I'M INNOCENT?
TELL ME WHAT I'M BEING
ACCUSED OF.
ALEXIS: THE F.B.I. BROUGHT
YOU IN FOR A VERY SPECIFIC
REASON.
WHY DON'T YOU TAKE A WILD GUESS.
SONNY: BEATS ME.
ALEXIS: I HAVE A VERY STRONG
BELIEF TT EVERPERSON HAS
A RIGHT TO QUALIFIED COUNSEL.
SONNY: MM-HMM.
ALEXIS: THAT BEING SAID,
I WILL NOT REPRESENT SOMEONE WHO
MURDERS FOR A LIVING.
NOW, IF THE F.B.I. BROUGHT
YOU IN FOR TAX VIOLATION
OR MONEY LAUNDERING, I'LL DEFEND
YOU.
BUT IF THERE IS ANY EVIDENCE
AT ALL OF MURDER OR ASSAULT,
YOU FIND YOURSELF ANOTHER&
ATTORNEY.
SONNY: FAIR ENOUGH.
ALEXIS: NOW, YOU SAID THAT
YOU DON'T KNOW WHY THE
F.B.I. BROUGHT YOU IN HERE.
IS THERE ANY POSSIBILITY AT ALL
THAT YOU'RE BEING FRAMED?
SONNY: ANYTHING'S POSSIBLE.
ALEXIS: COULD IT BE SOMEONE
CLOSE TO YOU, A COLLEAGUE,
MAYBE?
SONNY: NO.

JASON: CARLY HAD A FAMILY
EMERGENCY.
SHE WON'T BE BACK.
HANNAH: DO YOU HONESTLY
EXPECT MTO CARE?
JASON: LOOK, I KNOW YOU CAME
DOWN HERE BECAE YOU WERE
WORRIED ABOUT SONNY.
BUT SPEAKING TO THE FEDS UNDER
ANY CIRCUMSTANCES IS ALWAYS
A MISTAKE.
HANNAH: HEY, I'M NOT CARLY.
I CAN HAVE A CONVERSATION
WITHOUT FLYING OFF THE HANDLE.
JASON: OH, YEAH?
WELL, YOU LOOKED PRETTY MAD
IN THERE, AND EVERY WORD YOU SAY
WILL BE HELD AGAINST SONNY.
SO UNLESS YOU'RE CAREFUL,
HANNAH, YOU COULD BE THE REASON
HE GOES TO PRISON.

CARLY: WHERE'S MY MOTHER?
JAX: EIGHTH FLOOR.
CARLY: WHAT HAPPENED?
JAX: I DON'T HAVE THE EXACT
DETAILS, BUT APPARENTLY JERRY
LOST CONTROL OF THE CAR
AND THEY CRASHED.
CARLY: THAT FIGURES.
WHAT WAS HE DOING, SHOWING OFF?
WOULDN'T THAT BE A NOVEL IDEA.
JAX: OK, MAYBE YOU'D BETTER
TALK TO AUDREY.
CARLY: WHY?
LET ME GUESS -- MY MOTHER'S
IN SURGERY, AND JERRY BOY WALKED
AWAY WITHOUT A SCRATCH, RIGHT?
CHLOE: CARLY, YOU HAVE EVERY
RIGHT TO BE UPSET, BUT WOULDN'T
YOU LIKE TO HEAR THE FACTS
BEFORE YOU START MAKING
ACCUSATIONS?
CARLY: GO ON.
CHLOE: YOUR MOTHER WAS HURT,
BUT HER PROGNOSIS IS GOOD.
AND JERRY IS IN SURGERY RIGHT
NOW FIGHTING FOR HIS LIFE.
CARLY: I'M SORRY.
I DIDN'T KNOW.
JAX: OBVIOUSLY.
CARLY: I GOT TO FIND
MY MOTHER, JAX, AND I HOPE
JERRY'S OK.
I MEAN THAT.
CHLOE: CARLY JUST HAS
A TENDENCY TO GET CARRIED AWAY.
JAX: WELL, IN THIS CASE,
I CAN'T SAY I BLAME HER.
I MEAN,
YOU KNOW, IF I THOUGHT THAT
SOMEBODY I LOVED WAS HURT
BECAUSE OF SOMEBODY ELSE'S
RECKLESS BEHAVIOR, THEN,
YOU KNOW, I'D PRETTY MUCH REACT
THE SAME WAY.
CHLOE: WE DON'T HAVE ALL
THE FACTS YET, JAX
I'M SURE JERRY HAS A REASONABLE
EXPLANATION FOR WHY THE ACCIDENT
OCCURRED.
JAX: YEAH,
AND WHY IT'S NOT HIS FAULT.
WELL,
I'M WAITING TO HEAR YOUR SIDE
OF THE STORY, JERRY.
BUT YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO KEEP
BREATHING.
WHATEVER IS GOING ON
IN THAT O.R., JUST FIGHT BACK.
LIVE.

ALEXIS: AFTER WE'RE FINISHED,
THE AGENTS ARE GOING TO WANT
TO QUESTION YOU, WHICH COULD
TAKE HOURS, SO BE PREPARED
TO SPEND THE NIGHT.
SONNY: ANY WAY AROUND IT?
ALEXIS: PROBABLY NOT.
THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT
BY THE TIME THEY GET
YOU TO A CELL, THE COURTHOUSE
WILL HAVE OPENED AND I'LL BE
ABLE TO ARRANGE FOR BAIL
HEARING.
SONNY: ANY CHANCE OF DENIAL?
ALEXIS: ON WHAT BASIS?
SONNY: WELL, I'VE BEEN KNOWN
TO SKIP TOWN.
ALEXIS: IF THEY CLAIM YOU'RE
A FLIGHT RISK, WE'LL FIGHT IT.
I WANT TO REVIEW THE BEST WAY
TO HANDLE YOUR INTERROGATION.
SONNY: SAY AS LITTLE
AS POSSIBLE, DON'T SHOW THEM
WHAT THEY WANT TO SEE, AND DON'T
TAKE IT PERSONALLY.
ALEXIS: NOTHING LIKE
AN EXPERIENCED CLIENT.
SONNY: NOW, ARE YOU GOING
TO TELL ME WHEN THEY'RE GOING
TO LET ME KNOW WHY I GOT
ARRESTED?
ALEXIS: VIOLATING RICO
STATUTE CAN MEAN A LOT
OF THINGS, AND FULL DISCLOSURE
ISN'T REQUIRED UNTIL AN INITIAL
MEETING WITH THE JUDGE.
SONNY: ANY WAY TO WORK
ON THAT?
ALEXIS: I'LL STAY UP ALL
NIGHT IF I HAVE TO.
I DON'T WANT YOU TO GET
THE IMPRESSION THAT THIS CAN BE
EASILY SETTLED BECAUSE
THE F.B.I., THE D.A.'S OFFICE,
THE PORT CHARLES POLICE
DEPARTMENT ALL WANT TO PUT
YOU AWAY.
THIS IS SERIOUS.
AND I ENCOURAGE YOU TO TREAT IT
THAT WAY.
MAC: I HAVE SOME NEWS THAT
I THOUGHT YOU'D WANT TO KNOW
ABOUT RIGHT AWAY.
ALEXIS: WHAT?
MAC: YOUR HUSBAND'S BROTHER
WAS IN A CAR ACCIDENT.
HE'S AT GENERAL HOSPITAL.
ALEXIS: WHAT HAPPENED?
MAC: LOOK, ALL I KNOW IS THAT
BOBBIE SPENCER WAS WITH HIM.
SHE SEEMS TO HAVE COME THROUGH
IT BETTER THAN HIM.
ALEXIS: I'M SORRY.
I'M GOING TO HAVE TO GO.
SONNY: FAMILY'S FAMILY.
ALEXIS: I'LL BE BACK AS SOON
AS I CAN.
WILL YOU SPEAK TO THE F.B.I. AND
ASK THEM TO HOLD OFF
INTERROGATING TILL
I'M AVAILABLE?
MAC: IT'S ALREADY DONE.
ALEXIS: GOOD.
ARE THEY WAITING OUTSIDE?
MAC: THE CHIEF AGENT WENT
BACK TO HIS HOTEL.
NOTHING HAPPENS WITHOUT HIM.
ALEXIS: THANKS.
I'M REALLY SORRY ABOUT THIS.
SONNY: HEY, TOMORROW'S FINE.
ALEXIS: I'LL BE BACK
IN THE MORNING, AND WE'LL MAKE
SURE THAT YOU'RE RELEASED.
SONNY: GO. GO.
ALEXIS: THANK YOU.
MAC: TAGGERT.
SHOW MR. CORINTHOS TO HIS CELL.

TAGGERT: MY PLEASURE.
COME ON.
LET'S GO.
SONNY: YOU KNOW,
IF YOU SMILED A LITTLE MORE,
YOU KNOW, I MAY GIVE YOU A TIP.
TAGGERT: SEEING YOU BEHIND
BARS IS REWARD ENOUGH.
SONNY: OW. OW.
[SONNY HUMS]
TAGGERT: READY?

FELICIA: CHLOE.
HI.
CHLOE: HI.
FELICIA: ARE YOU HERE
WITH JAX?
CHLOE: MM-HMM.
FELICIA: I JUST HEARD ABOUT
THE ACCIDENT.
HOW ARE JERRY AND BOBBIE?
CHLOE: BOBBIE WAS HURT,
BUT SHE'S GOING TO BE OK.
FELICIA: JERRY?
CHLOE: IT'S SERIOUS, FELICIA.
HE'S IN SURGERY RIGHT NOW.
FELICIA: FOR WHAT?
CHLOE: INTERNAL BLEEDING.
THEY DON'T KNOW WHERE IT'S
COMING FROM.
FELICIA: IS JAX WITH HIM?
CHLOE: NO.
HE WENT TO CHECK ON HIS REPORT
FROM THE O.R.
I TRIED CALLING ALEXIS
AND SHE DIDN'T ANSWER, SO I LEFT
HER A MESSAGE ON HER VOICE MAIL.
FELICIA: OH, YOU KNOW WHAT?
SHE'LL PROBABLY CALL
BECAUSE WE WERE AT THE
POLICE STATION, MAC AND I,
AND THAT'S WHERE WE GOT
THE MESSAGE, AND SHE WAS THERE.
CHLOE: I JUST FEEL TERRIBLE,
FELICIA.
JAX IS SO UPSET.
HE'S TERRIFIED HE'S GOING
TO LOSE HIS BROTHER.
FELICIA: I KNOW WHAT IT'S
LIKE TO HAVE SOMEONE THAT
YOU LOVE IN THIS KIND OF DANGER.
YOU JUST WAIT AROUND
AND YOU JUST TRY TO CONVINCE
YOURSELF THAT EVERYTHING IS
GOING TO BE FINE, AND ALL YOU'RE
REALLY THINKING IS "PLEASE, GOD,
PLEASE DON'T LEAVE ME."
CHLOE: AND I JUST WANT TO BE
SOME SORT OF HELP.
BUT JAX IS SO SELF-SUFFICIENT,
I DON'T KNOW HOW.
FELICIA: YOU KNOW, I DON'T
THINK THERE'S ANY ONE RIGHT WAY
TO HELP SOMEONE THROUGH THIS
KIND OF THING.
INSTINCTS ARE GOOD.
YOU COULD FOLLOW THEM.
CHLOE: YEAH, I'VE BEEN TRYING
TO KEEP HIS SPIRITS UP.
FELICIA: WELL, THAT'S A GOOD
START.
MOST OF ALL, YOU SHOULD LISTEN
TO HIM,
YOU KNOW, WHERE HIS HEAD
AND HIS HEART NEED TO GO,
AND YOU CAN BE GOOD COMPANY
FOR HIM.
CHLOE: THANKS.
FELICIA: OH, AND DON'T FORGET
TO FEED HIM.
SOMETIMES WHEN YOU'RE SCARED,
YOU FORGET TO EAT.
CHLOE: GOT IT.
FELICIA: I'M GOING TO GO FIND
AUDREY AND FIND OUT ABOUT
BOBBIE.
CHLOE: OK.
FELICIA: ARE YOU ALL RIGHT?
CHLOE: I'M BETTER.
FELICIA: JAX IS LUCKY TO HAVE
A GOOD FRIEND LIKE YOU.
JAX: I COULDN'T GET ANYWHERE.
ALL THEY TOLD ME IS THAT JERRY'S
STILL IN THE O.R.
CHLOE: OK, SO WE WILL KEEP
WAITING, HOPING, AND BELIEVING.
JAX: YEAH, AND I GOT AHOLD
OF MY PARENTS.
THEY SHOULD BE HERE ANY MINUTE.
I TRIED TO SOUND OPTIMISTIC,
BUT I DON'T THINK THEY
BOUGHT IT.
CHLOE: YOU MUST BE THIRSTY.
DO YOU WANT ME TO --
DO YOU WANT TO GO GET SOME
JUICE?
JAX: NO. NO, THANKS.
CHLOE: I'LL GO GET IT
FOR YOU, IF YOU WANT TO RELAX.
JAX: YOU KNOW, FRANKLY,
I'D -- I'D JUST RATHER HAVE
YOU CLOSE TO ME.

NURSE: HI.
CARLY: HI.
EXCUSE ME.
I'M BARBARA'S DAUGHTER.
NURSE: YES?
CARLY: YOU KNOW, THEY TOLD ME
THAT SHE WAS GOING TO BE OK,
BUT SHE DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT.
NURSE: OH, NO.
I JUST GAVE HER PAIN MEDICATION.
BEST THING FOR HER TO DO IS
TO SLEEP RIGHT NOW.
CARLY: WOULD IT BE OK
IF I SAT WITH HER?
NURSE: I'VE WORKED
WITH BOBBIE FOR YEARS.
SHE'S ALWAYS BEEN UP
FOR COMPANY.
GO AHEAD.
CARLY: THANKS.
CARLY: HI.
MOM?
IT'S ME.
YOU KNOW, THEY SAID THAT
YOU WERE GOING TO BE OK.
BUT I HAVE TO TELL YOU IT'S
STILL PRETTY SCARY SEEING
YOU LIKE THIS.
YOU KNOW,
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE LAST THING
I SAID TO VIRGINIA BEFORE
SHE DIED WAS?
"GO AWAY.
I DON'T NEED YOU."
SHE RAISED ME.
SHE GAVE ME A HOME.
AND THAT'S HOW I SAID GOOD-BYE.
BUT WE'RE NOT GOING TO BE SAYING
GOOD-BYE, NOT FOR A LONG TIME,
YEARS AND YEARS.
BUT THE LAST THING I SAID TO YOU
WAS THAT I ACCUSED YOU OF NEVER
BEING ON MY SIDE --
WHICH I KNOW I DO ALL
THE TIME, BUT
I GUESS I JUST REALLY WANT
YOU TO KNOW THAT I DON'T --
I DON'T REALLY BELIEVE THAT.
THERE'S THIS LESSON I KEEP
LEARNING OVER AND OVER AGAIN,
AND I THINK IT'S EASIER NOW
BECAUSE I'M A MOTHER AND --
YOU KNOW, MICHAEL, HE HURLED
HIS LITTLE SPOON ALL THE WAY
ACROSS THE DINING ROOM
THREE TIMES IN A ROW THE OTHER
DAY.
AND HE KNOWS HE'S NOT SUPPOSED
TO, AND I TOLD HIM TO KNOCK
IT OFF.
BUT AT THE SAME TIME,
I LOVED HIM JUST AS MUCH
AS ALWAYS.
AND I KNOW THAT IT'S --
IT'S LIKE THAT WITH YOU.
YOU MAY NOT ALWAYS AGREE
WITH ME, BUT YOU LOVE ME.
AND I LOVE YOU, TOO.
WHICH BY ITSELF IS PRACTICALLY
A MIRACLE.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT PEOPLE --
PEOPLE THINK THAT I'M LUCKY
BECAUSE I'M A QUARTERMAINE, AND
THEY DON'T REALIZE
THAT FINDING MY MOTHER AND
VING HER BE YOU --
THAT'S THE LUCKIEST THING THAT
EVER HAPPENED TO ME.
MAMA, PLEASE BE OK.
WE HAVE SO MANY YEARS
TO MAKE UP FOR.
A.J.: CARLY.
A.J.: WHAT HAPPENED?
CARLY: SHE'S ASLEEP.
NO, IT'S -- IT'S A LOT BETTER
THAN IT LOOKS.
A.J.: ARE YOU SURE?
I THOUGHT --
CARLY: NO, NO.
I JUST -- UGH.
I GUESS IT JUST REALLY SHOCKED
ME AND IT WAS HARD TO SEE,
LIKE, HER WITH ALL THOSE TUBES
IN HER, YOU KNOW, A LOT HARDER
THAN I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING
TO BE, BUT THANK YOU FOR CALLING
ME BECAUSE I NEEDED TO GET OVER
HERE RIGHT AWAY.
A.J.: WELL, I WAS HOPING THAT
WE COULD DRIVE OVER HERE
TOGETHER.
WHERE WERE YOU?

CARLY: YOU REMEMBER MY --
MY OLD DESIGN PARTNER
FROM SCHOOL?
A.J.: VAGUELY.
CARLY: WELL, I RAN
INTO HER AFTER I LEFT BOBBIE,
AND WE WERE BOTH HUNGRY,
SO WE STOPPED BY THAT NEW
SOUTHWEST PLACE, YOU KNOW,
EVERYBODY'S BEEN RAVING ABOUT?
ANYWAY, THAT'S WHERE I WAS WHEN
YOU CALLED.
SO I RAN OUT OF THERE.
I GRABBED THE FIRST TAXI CAB
I COULD FIND.
AND I DIDN'T WANT TO WAIT,
YOU KNOW?
I JUST THOUGHT THAT WOULD HAVE
MADE ME CRAZY.
A.J.: YEAH.
WELL, YOU KNOW, THE IMPORTANT
THING IS THAT BOBBIE IS
ALL RIGHT.
CARLY: YEAH.
A.J.: YOU READY TO GO HOME?
CARLY: NO.
I THINK I'D JUST LIKE TO STAY
HERE, IF THAT'S OK.
A.J.: SURE.
WHATEVER MAKES YOU COMFORTABLE.
CARLY: THANKS FOR CHECKING
ON ME.
A.J.: IT'S PART OF THE JOB.
CARLY: HMM, HMM.

ALEXIS: I JUST CAME
FROM THE PCPD.
HI -- HI.
HOW IS JERRY?
JAX: HE'S STILL IN SURGERY.
ALEXIS: LISTEN, IS
DR. CALETTI DOING THE SURGERY?
BECAUSE I KNEW HIM FROM WHEN
I WORKED HERE AS CHIEF COUNSEL,
AND HE'S AN EXCELLENT SURGEON.
JAX: IT'S BEEN HOURS, ALEXIS.
IT'S NOT A GOOD SIGN.
ALEXIS: HAS ANYONE COME OUT
HERE TO GIVE YOU AN UPDATE?
JAX: NO.
ALEXIS: ALL RIGHT,
WELL, LET ME GO FIND OUT WHAT'S
GOING ON.
JAX: I'VE ALREADY TRIED.
I DIDN'T GET ANYWHERE.
THAT MUST MEAN IT'S NOT GOING
TOO WELL.
OTHERWISE, THEY'D HAVE TOLD ME.
ALEXIS: ALL RIGHT, NOW HOLD
ON AND JUST LISTEN TO ME
FOR A SECOND.
WHEN WE WERE IN THE SAHARA,
I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO DIE,
AND YOU WERE THE ONE WHO SHOWED
ME HOW NOT TO GIVE UP HOPE,
AND WE WILLED THAT PLANE
TO RESCUE US.
SO IN CASE YOU'VE FORGOTTEN
ABOUT THAT, I'M RIGHT HERE
TO REMIND YOU OF THAT.
COME HERE.
AUDREY: JAX?
JAX: YES.
AUDREY: I JUST HUNG UP
WITH DR. CALETTI.
HE WANTS TO CONFER WITH
THE FAMILY IN THE WAITING ROOM
OUTSIDE THE O.R.
JAX: DID HE SAY WHY?
AUDREY: THAT'S ALL
THE INFORMATION I HAVE.
I'M SORRY.
JAX: OK.
MY PARENTS ARE ARRIVING
MOMENTARILY.
WILL YOU TELL THEM WHERE WE ARE?
AUDREY: OH, YES, OF COURSE.
JAX: OK. COME ON.
AUDREY: OH --
IT'S FAMILY MEMBERS ONLY.

FELICIA: HELLO.
HI, GRANDMOTHER. IT'S ME.
WELL, YEAH, IT'S BEEN KIND
OF A ROUGH DAY TODAY.
ARE THE GIRLS ASLEEP?
OH, NO, NO, NO.
DON'T DO THAT.
I'LL JUST CALL BACK TOMORROW
WITH MAC.
HOW'S OUR FRIENDLY P.I. DOING?
IS HE FOLLOWING AT A RESPECTFUL
DISTANCE, I HOPE?
GOOD.
OK, WELL, I'LL CALL TOMORROW,
AND BE SURE AND TELL THEM I MISS
THEM ALREADY AND I LOVE THEM
SO MUCH.
OK.
I LOVE YOU, TOO. BYE.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
FELICIA: HELLO?
LUKE!
OH, MY GOD!
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?
YEAH, I KNOW.
I KNOW BETTER THAN TO ASK
YOU THAT QUESTION.
LISTEN, I NEED TO TELL YOU SOME
REALLY IMPORTANT THINGS.
FIRST OF ALL, BOBBIE'S BEEN
IN A CAR ACCIDENT, AND -- NO,
SHE'S OK.
SHE'S HAD WHIPLASH AND SHE'S
SEDATED RIGHT NOW, BUT I'M HERE
AT GENERAL HOSPITAL HERE AND --
BUT SHE'S ALL RIGHT.
ALSO, I WANTED TO TELL YOU --
YOU KNOW THAT MAN THAT YOU'VE
BEEN DOING BUSINESS WITH?
THERE'S SOMETHING YOU SHOULD
KNOW.

FAISON: ONCE SPENCER DELIVERS
THE JEWELS TO THE DROP-OFF
POINT, YOU ARE TO DETAIN HIM
BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY
BECAUSE I DON'T WANT HIM BACK
IN PORT CHARLES UNTIL I'M READY
FOR HIM.
AGENT: OK, CHIEF.

JASON: WHAT ARE THE CHARGES?
AGENT: THERE ARE NO CHARGES
FOR THE MOMENT, BUT IT'S
IN YOUR BEST INTEREST
TO COOPERATE.
JASON: WHAT DO YOU WANT?
AGENT: WE'LL NEED
YOUR PERSONAL AND BUSINESS TAX
RECORDS, AS WELL AS FINANCIAL
STATEMENTS FOR CORINTHOS-MORGAN
IMPORTS.
JASON: WHEN?
AGENT: WE'LL BE QUESTIONING
YOU IN THE MORNING.
YOU CAN BRING THEM IN THEN.
JASON: I'LL HAVE TO SPEAK
TO MY ATTORNEY FIRST.
AGENT: DON'T TAKE TOO LONG.
JASON: I CAN GIVE YOU A RIDE
HOME, IF YOU'RE READY.
HANNAH: THANKS.

>> ON THE NEXT "GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

BOBBIE: JERRY?
LUKE: IT'S SERIOUS.

JAX: IF YOU WANT TO LEAVE,
IT'S OK.
ALEXIS: NOTHING IS MORE
IMPORTANT THAN BEING HERE
WITH YOU.
I'M YOUR WIFE, REMEMBER?
