ELIZABETH: DOES IT HURT?
JASON: NO, I FEEL --
I FEEL BETTER.
HOW'D IT LOOK?
ELIZABETH: A LOT BETTER.
IT'S NOT NEARLY AS RED
AND THE SWELLING'S ALMOST DOWN,
SO AS YOUR UNOFFICIAL DOCTOR,
I'D SAY YOU'RE HEALING.
JASON: I'D TAKE YOU OVER
A DOCTOR ANY DAY.
ELIZABETH: OH, WELL,
THAT'S BECAUSE YOU LIKE TO LIVE
DANGEROUSLY.
BUT TRUST ME, I'M A BAD CHOICE
TO TAKE CARE OF ANYONE.
I HAVE THE PATIENCE OF A GNAT.
AND IN ORDER TO TAKE CARE
OF SICK OR INJURED PEOPLE,
YOU HAVE TO BE REALLY STEADY
AND COOL LIKE MY GRAM.
JASON: I HOPE TAKING CARE
OF ME HASN'T COST YOU TOO MUCH.
ELIZABETH: IT HASN'T.
I'LL MAKE UP WITH HER AT SOME
POINT.
BUT I'M NOT GOING TO CHANGE
MY MIND ABOUT DOING WHAT'S RIGHT
FOR ME, AND I'M NOT GOING
TO LIVE MY LIFE TO PLEASE
HER OR ANYONE ELSE.

NIKOLAS: TAMMY.
TAMMY: HEY.
NIKOLAS: HI.
IS ELIZABETH AROUND?
TAMMY: NO, ACTUALLY,
SHE'S NOT WORKING TODAY.
BUT I BET YOU SHE POPS IN ANY
MINUTE.
SHE'S BEEN REALLY INTO SOUP
BY THE QUART LATELY.
EVERYTHING OK?
NIKOLAS: YEAH, YEAH, FINE.
TAMMY: GOOD.
SO, DID YOU FINISH ALL
YOUR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING YET?
NIKOLAS: ALMOST.
HOW ABOUT YOU?
TAMMY: OH, PLEASE.
I HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED.
EXCUSE ME.
NIKOLAS: LIEUTENANT?
TAGGERT: MR. CASSADINE.
NIKOLAS: YOU GOT A SECOND?
YOU MIND IF I ASK YOU A QUESTION
ABOUT JASON MORGAN?
TAGGERT: GO RIGHT AHEAD.
NIKOLAS: IS HE IN ANY KIND
OF NEW TROUBLE LATELY?
TAGGERT: NO, BUT THAT COULD
CHANGE AT ANY TIME.
YOU KNOW SOMETHING THE COPS
SHOULD KNOW?
NIKOLAS: NO, I WAS JUST
WONDERING.
TAGGERT: WEL, THERE IS
AN ONGOING INVESTIGATION
FROM HIS LAST ARREST.
THERE'S A NUMBER FOR ANYBODY WHO
SAW SOMETHING.
CALLERS DON'T HAVE TO LEAVE
THEIR NAME.
IT'S STRICTLY ANONYMOUS.
NIKOLAS: IT WAS JUST
A QUESTION, THAT'S ALL.
TAGGERT: WELL, YOU ARE
A FRIEND OF JASON MORGAN'S
SISTER, EMILY, SO WHO KNOWS WHAT
YOU MIGHT HEAR.
NIKOLAS: I'M NO SPY.
TAGGERT: NO, BUT YOU DID TAKE
A BULLET THAT WAS MEANT
FOR JASON MORGAN.
YOU DON'T OWE HIM ANYTHING.
TAGGERT: MERRY CHRISTMAS.
NIKOLAS: MERRY CHRISTMAS,
LIEUTENANT.

JUAN: SILENT NIGHT
HOLY NIGHT
ALL IS CALM
ALL IS BRIGHT
'ROUND YON VIRGIN
MOTHER AND CHILD
HOLY INFANT
SO TENDER AND MILD
SLEEP IN HEAVENLY
PEACE
SLEEP IN
HEAVENLY
PEACE

TONY: HEY, AUDREY.
YOU READY FOR THE CHRISTMAS
PARTY?
AUDREY: PLEASE, DON'T ASK.
TONY: WHAT'S UP WITH AUDREY?
BOBBIE: OH, I DON'T KNOW.
BUT I'M NOT IN THE GREATEST MOOD
MYSELF, SO WATCH OUT.
TONY: LUCAS TOLD ME THAT
YOU SAID IT'S OK TO BE SAD ABOUT
JERRY AND HAPPY ABOUT CHRISTMAS.
YOU'RE NOT FOLLOWING YOUR OWN
ADVICE?
BOBBIE: I'M TRYING TO WHEN
I'M AROUND THE KIDS.
TONY: YOU SHOULD DROP
BY ROOM 412.
I'VE GOT A 6-YEAR-OLD IN THERE
THAT'S LITERALLY COUNTING DOWN
THE HOURS TILL THE CHRISTMAS
PARTY.
ALMOST MAKES ME NOSTALGIC
FOR THE GOOD OLD DAYS.
BOBBIE: TONY, YOU ALWAYS WERE
A GREAT SANTA.
WHY DON'T YOU ASK?
I DON'T THINK THEY HAVE ANYBODY
LINED UP.
TONY: NO, THAT WOULD BE
PUSHING THE ENVELOPE.
BOBBIE: YOU'VE PROVEN
YOURSELF TO ME.
TONY: BUT YOU'RE NOT
THE HOSPITAL.
IT MIGHT MAKE FOR BAD PRESS.
BOBBIE: WELL, ISN'T THIS
HOLIDAY SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT
FORGIVENESS?
I'LL TELL THAT TO THE PRESS.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO ASK.
I'LL DO IT FOR YOU.

ROY: HI.
I'M ROY DiLUCCA.
LAURA: I'M SORRY.
STEFAN: STEFAN CASSADINE.
ROY: HEY.
I'M GOING TO HIT THE ROAD.
WHEN YOU SAY THAT ANYTIME'S OK
FOR ME TO MOVE IN, ARE YOU SURE
THERE'S NOT ONE DAY THAT'S
BETTER THAN ANOTHER?
LAURA: NO.
REALLY, ANYTIME.
JUST CALL ME, LET ME KNOW WHEN,
AND I'LL MAKE SURE I HAVE
EVERYTHING READY.
ROY: OK.
GREAT.
IT WAS NICE MEETING YOU.
ROY: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LAURA.
LAURA: THANK YOU.
ROY: YEAH.
LAURA: BYE-BYE.
ROY: BYE.
LAURA: I WASN'T EXPECTING
TO SEE YOU.
I'M GLAD YOU STOPPED BY, THOUGH.
STEFAN: WHEN DID YOU DECIDE
TO HAVE THAT MAN LIVE HERE?

FELICIA: WAIT.
WAIT.
WAIT.
WAIT, WAIT.

LAURA: I'M MAKING USE
OF A HOUSE THAT IS TOO BIG
FOR ME.
ROY OR ANY OTHER BORDER ISN'T
GOING TO BE A MEMBER
OF MY FAMILY.
AND HE'S NOT GOING TO BE
MY BOYFRIEND, EITHER, IF THAT'S
WHAT THIS JEALOUS LOOK
ON YOUR FACE IS ABOUT.
STEFAN: I'M CONCERNED.
YOU'RE A SINGLE WOMAN LIVING
HERE WITH A SMALL CHILD
AND YOUR MOTHER, WHO'S SELDOM
HERE, AND YOU'RE GIVING
A STRANGER THE KEY TO YOUR HOME.
LAURA: AND I'M BRINGING
IN EXTRA INCOME --
STEFAN: YOU KNOW YOU DON'T
NEED EXTRA INCOME.
LAURA: AND I'M FILLING
AN EMPTY ROOM -- LUCKY'S.
HE'S NOT A STRANGER.
ACTUALLY, I'VE KNOWN HIM LONGER
THAN I'VE KNOWN YOU.
STEFAN: I DON'T RECALL
YOU EVER MENTIONING HIM.
LAUA: WELL, ACTUALLY
I HAVEN'T SEEN HIM IN THE PAST
20 YEARS.
HE'S BEEN OUT OF PORT CHARLES.
BUT HE'S JUST COME BACK,
AND -- HE ANSWERED AN AD THAT
I PUT IN THE NEWSPAPER.
HE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW IT WAS ME.
HE NEEDS A PLACE TO LIVE,
AND I'VE GOT ONE.
AND IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.
STEFAN: WHERE HAS MR. DiLUCCA
BEEN ALL THIS TIME?
LAURA: DON'T OVERACT
TO THIS, OK?
HE'S BEEN IN PRISON.
STEFAN: HE'S BEEN IN PRISON
FOR 20 YEARS.
HE MUST BE A FRIEND OF LUKE'S.
LAURA: HE WAS ALSO A FRIEND
OF MINE.
AND I'M PARTLY RESPONSIBLE
FOR WHAT SENT HIM TO PRISON,
SO I THINK HE DESERVES A SECOND
CHANCE, OK?
I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING.
REALLY.
EXCUSE ME.
STEFAN: LAURA, YOU'RE RENTING
A ROOM IN YOUR HOME.
SHALL I ASSUME YOU'VE DECIDED
AGAINST EVER STARTING A LIFE
WITH ME?

JUAN: ALL IS CALM
ALL IS BRIGHT
'ROUND YON VIRGIN
MOTHER AND CHILD
HOLY INFANT
SO TENDER AND MILD
SLEEP IN HEAVENLY
PEACE
SLEEP IN
HEY.
I DIDN'T HEAR YOU.
EMILY: I HEARD YOU.

ELIZABETH: WHAT ARE
YOU DOING?
JASON: I'M JUST TRYING TO GET
STRENGTH BACK IN MY ARM.
ELIZABETH: YOU HAVE A WOUND
THAT'S TRYING TO HEAL
WITHOUT STITCHES.
YOU THINK YOU CAN WAIT A WHILE
BEFORE YOU STARTING WORKING OUT?
JASON: I'M BEING CAREFUL.
ELIZABETH: NO, NO, NO, NO.
YOU NEED TO TAKE IT EASY.
YOU PROMISED BOBBIE.
YOU PROMISED ME.
JASON: YEAH, I -- I FEEL
BETTER.
MUCH BETTER.
ELIZABETH: YEAH,
WELL, THAT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE
LETTING YOURSELF HEAL.
YOU START PUSHING YOURSELF,
YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL ROTTEN
AGAIN REAL FAST.
JASON: WHATEVER YOU SAY.
ELIZABETH: WELL, THEN I SAY
IT'S TIME FOR LUNCH.
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM KELLY'S?
JASON: ANYTHING BUT THAT
SOUP.
ELIZABETH: THE APPETITE
RETURNS.
THAT'S AN EXCELLENT SIGN.
YOU UP FOR YOUR OLD USUAL?
JASON: YEAH, THAT WOULD BE
FINE.
ELIZABETH: OK.
I'LL GET EGYPT OUT OF THE WAY
FOR YOU.
JASON: NO.
NO, YOU CAN LEAVE IT.
ELIZABETH: AS LONG
AS YOU DON'T USE IT AS A FREE
WEIGHT.
JASON: I PROMISE.
ELIZABETH: IF YOU START
TO FEEL RAVENOUS WHILE I'M OUT,
FEEL FREE TO EAT SOME FRUIT.
JASON: NO, THANKS.
I DON'T EAT ART.

FELICIA: I CAN'T -- I CAN'T
DO THIS.
IT'S NOT THAT I DON'T WANT
TO OR HAVEN'T THOUGHT ABOUT IT.
I'M REALLY SORRY.
LUKE: NO, NO, NO.
I KNOW.
IT'S OK.
IT'S OK.
FELICIA: I JUST COULD NEVER
BE UNFAITHFUL.
LUKE: I -- I KNOW.
I KNOW.
LUKE: THAT'S OK.
FELICIA: WHAT -- WHAT -- WHAT
ARE YOU -- WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
DON'T.
STOP IT.
FELICIA: STOP -- STOP.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?

EMILY: GREAT.
WHY DON'T WE START WITH YOU?
JUAN: NO.
EMILY: COME ON.
LET NED JUST HEAR ONE SONG.
JUAN: NO.
EMILY: JUST SING ONE SONG.
JUAN: NO, NO.
EMILY: JUAN, YOU HAVE
A TALENT.
YOU HAVE A GIFT.
JUAN: DON'T SAY THAT.
EMILY: WHY NOT?
JUAN: BECAUSE --
BECAUSE I WANT PEOPLE TO ADMIRE
ME FOR ME, NOT BECAUSE I'M
MIGUEL MOREZ'S SON.
LOOK, I NEED TO FINISH UP.

TAMMY: THERE YOU GO --
ONE JASON MORGAN SPECIAL.
OH -- WHEN JASON'S AROUND,
HE COMES IN FOR ONE OF THOSE
PRACTICALLY EVERY SINGLE DAY.
HE MUST BE OUT OF TOWN
BECAUSE I HAVEN'T SEEN HIM
LATELY.
ELIZABETH: OH.
TAMMY: OH, BY THE WAY,
NIKOLAS WAS IN HERE LOOKING
FOR YOU EARLIER.
ELIZABETH: THANKS.
TAMMY: YOU'RE WELCOME.
ELIZABETH: SEE YOU LATER.
TAMMY: BYE.
ELIZABETH: I'M IN A HURRY.
NIKOLAS: WHERE TO?
BACK TO JASON?
ELIZABETH: YOU ALREADY DID
THIS AT MY GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE.
YOU GOING TO DO IT WHERE I WORK
NOW, TOO?
NIKOLAS: LOOK, IF
YOUR QUESTION IS WILL I KEEP
ON CARING THAT YOU'RE
IN TROUBLE, THE ANSWER IS YES.

AUDREY: BOBBIE, DO YOU HAVE
A SECOND?
BOBBIE: SURE.
AUDREY: ARE YOU STILL CLOSE
TO JASON MORGAN?
I MEAN, DO YOU HAVE ANY
INFLUENCE WITH HIM?
BOBBIE: I SUPPOSE I HAVE
SOME.
WHY?
AUDREY: IT'S ELIZABETH.
I RECENTLY DISCOVERED THAT SHE'S
INVOLVED WITH JASON.
OH, THESE LAST TWO YEARS HAVE
BEEN SO HARD ON HER.
FIRST, THE RAPE AND THEN FALLING
SO COMPLETELY IN LOVE
WITH LUCKY, ONLY TO LOSE HIM
IN SUCH A HORRIBLE WAY, AND I --
WELL, I CAN'T HELP BUT BELIEVE
THAT ALL OF THAT PLAYS A PART
IN THIS.
AND THEN, OF COURSE, SHE IS
A LITTLE HOTHEADED.
BOBBIE: AUDREY, WHEN YOU SAY
INVOLVED WITH JASON,
WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU MEAN?
AUDREY: SHE'S SLEEPING
WITH HIM.
BOBBIE: AND YOU KNOW THIS
BECAUSE?
AUDREY: BECAUSE I OVERHEARD
NIKOLAS ACCUSE HER.
I STOOD THERE HOLDING MY BREATH,
PRAYING THAT SHE'D DENY IT,
BUT SHE DIDN'T.
BOBBIE: WHAT DID SHE SAY?
AUDREY: WELL, SHE SAID THAT
HE DIDN'T UNDERSTAND OR WORDS
TO THAT EFFECT.
ANYWAY, I WENT TO THE ART STUDIO
THAT I HAD HELPED HER RENT
FOR HER 18th BIRTHDAY,
AND, WELL, I DID FIND JASON
IN A MAKESHIFT BED,
OBVIOUSLY FEELING VERY MUCH
AT HOME.
BOBBIE: DID HE KNOW YOU SAW
HIM?
AUDREY: OH, YES, ABSOLUTELY.
I CONFRONTED HIM.
I TOLD HIM EXACTLY WHAT
I THOUGHT -- THAT IF HE HAS ANY
DECENCY AT ALL, HE'LL STAY AWAY
FROM HER.
BOBBIE: WHAT DID HE SAY?
AUDREY: HE SAID NOTHING MUCH
BECAUSE ELIZABETH CAME IN JUST
THEN, AND HE LEFT.
BOBBIE: OH.
SO DID ELIZABETH DENY THAT
SHE WAS SLEEPING WITH HIM?
AUDREY: OH, ON THE CONTRARY.
SHE SAID SHE'S 18.
SHE CAN DO WHAT SHE WANTS.
IT'S NONE OF MY BUSINESS.
AND THEN SHE ANNOUNCED THAT
SHE WOULD BE MOVING OUT
AND LIVING AT THE STUDIO
FROM NOW ON.
BOBBIE: OH, AUDREY.
TRUST ELIZABETH.
I MEAN, YOU REMEMBER WHAT IT'S
LIKE TO BE 18.
YOU KNOW, YOU EXPERIMENT
WITH YOUR INDEPENDENCE,
AND YOU TEST YOUR WINGS JUST
TO SEE WHAT FEELS RIGHT AND WHAT
DOESN'T AND, WELL -- JASON MAY
SEEM TO BE OFF-PUTTING,
BUT HE WOULD NEVER LET ANYTHING
HAPPEN TO HER.
AUDREY: BOBBIE, I THOUGHT
GIVEN YOUR EXPERIENCE THAT
I COULD COUNT ON YOU TO HELP.
I MEAN, FORGIVE ME FOR SOUNDING
SELF-RIGHTEOUS, BUT I DON'T WANT
MY GRANDDAUGHTER INVOLVED
WITH JASON'S SORT.
BOBBIE: EXCUSE ME,
AUDREY, BUT WHAT SORT IS THAT?
AUDREY: WELL, I THINK
YOU KNOW.
BOBBIE: AUDREY,
MY EXPERIENCE IS THIS --
SOMETIMES DECENT MEN MAKE
CHOICES WE WISH THEY HADN'T.
THEY PAY IN TERRIBLE WAYS,
BUT AFTERWARDS THEY DESERVE
A NEW START.
NOW, ARRESTS DON'T MAKE A MAN
EVIL ANY MORE THAN OBEYING LAWS
MAKES HIM WONDERFUL.
AND PEOPLE WHO'VE SEEN HELL --
WELL, IF WE JUST STOP JUDGING
THEM AND GIVE THEM A NEW START,
THEY CAN BE WONDERFUL PEOPLE.
ROY: EXCUSE ME.
HI.
BOBBIE: HI.

LAURA: I UNDERSTAND WHY
YOU'RE UPSET ABOUT ME RENTING
TO ROY.
I REALLY DO.
I MEAN, IT WASN'T SO LONG AGO
THAT I WOULD NEVER HAVE DONE
SOMETHING LIKE THIS
WITHOUT TELLING YOU FIRST.
STEFAN: I'D HOPE THAT
YOU WOULDN'T EVEN CONSIDER IT,
THAT YOU WERE STARTING
TO BELIEVE IN A FUTURE WITH ME.
LAURA: I BELIEVED THAT
WE WERE BEING COMPLETELY HONEST
WITH EACH OTHER.
AND WHEN I ASKED YOU TO TELL ME
THE TRUTH, YOU CHOSE TO LIE
TO ME.
I'M NOT SAYING THAT I'VE COME
TO A CONCLUSION BECAUSE
I HAVEN'T.
I LOVE YOU.
I -- I STILL LOVE YOU.
STEFAN: YOU LOVE ME.
BUT BECAUSE I STOPPED -- NOT
MURDERED -- SIMPLY STOPPED
THE WOMAN WHO WAS TORTURING
YOU AND THOSE YOU LOVE,
BECAUSE I NEUTRALIZED HELENA,
YOU NO LONGER TRUST ME.
LAURA: I UNDERSTAND
YOUR REASONING.
I REALLY DO.
I THINK THAT WHAT FRIGHTENS ME
THE MOST IS THAT I LET
YOU CONVINCE ME THAT YOU WERE
REALLY WORRIED ABOUT
YOUR MOTHER.
I MEAN, I JUST BOUGHT THAT WHOLE
ACT.
STEFAN: IF I HAD TOLD
YOU THE TRUTH, I WOULD HAVE
IMPLICATED YOU.
LAURA: YOU LIED TO ME,
AND I FELL FOR IT.
I JST WANT TO THINK ABOUT
THAT, OK?
I NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT
MEANS.
STEFAN: IT MEANS THAT I WILL
PROTECT YOU ALWAYS.
LAURA: YEAH, BUT I FEEL LIKE
AT ANY MOMENT I COULD BE
IN THE DARK WITH YOU AGAIN.
I DON'T KNOW IF THERE'S
SOMETHING ELSE I DON'T KNOW
ABOUT.
STEFAN: THERE IS NOTHING.
LAURA: RIGHT.
OK, SO HOW DI KNOW WHEN THAT
CHANGES?
I JUST TRUST YOU TO TELL ME.
STEFAN: LAURA, HOW ELSE WAS
I TO PROTECT YOU AGAINST HELENA?
HOW ELSE?
LAURA: I DON'T KNOW.
I DON'T KNOW.
I JUST --
I THINK THAT
OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS
I'VE BEEN LEANING ON
YOU FOR SUPPORT, YOU KNOW,
JUST TO GET ME THROUGH FROM ONE
DAY TO THE NEXT.
AND I THINK THAT I HAVEN'T TAKEN
THE TIME TO GET TO KNOW WHO
YOU ARE.
LAURA: I MEAN, TO KNOW
YOUR HEART.
I -- I NEED TO DO THAT.
I NEED TO KNOW YOUR HEART
AND MINE.
STEFAN: LAURA,
YOU KNOW MY HEART.
IT IS THE SAME NOW
AS THE FIRST NIGHT WE MET
IN THE GARDENS ON THE ISLAND,
WHEN I LIED TO THE GUARDS
TO PROTECT YOU.
I LOVE YOU.
I LOVED YOU THEN.
I LOVE YOU OW.
I ALWAYS WILL.
HAVE A HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

FELICIA: LUKE, WHAT ARE
YOU DOING?
LUKE: KEEP IT UP.
FIGHT ME.
FELICIA: I SAID STOP IT!
LUKE: HE'S WATCHING.
LET'S SPOIL THE SHOW FOR HIM.
GET HIM IN HERE.
FELICIA: LUKE, I SAID
STOP IT!
LUKE: I CAN'T!
FELICIA: NO!
LUKE: YOU OWE ME!
FELICIA: STOP IT, I MEAN IT.
STOP IT!
STOP IT.
STOP IT.
FAISON: TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF
HER.
TAKE THEM OFF!

[GUNSHOT]
FELICIA: AH!
FAISON: THIS WILL BE THE LAST
WARNING SHOT YOU'LL EVER HEAR.
FELICIA: NO!
[GUNSHOT]
LUKE: FELICIA --
FELICIA!
YOU --
BASTARD!

ELIZABETH: NIKOLAS, I KNOW
YOU'RE PUSHING BECAUSE YOU'RE
WORRIED ABOUT ME, THE SAME WAY
I WAS WORRIED ABOUT YOU WHEN
YOU WERE WITH KATHERINE.
BUT DO YOU REMEMBER HOW YOU USED
TO TELL ME I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND?
AND I REALLY DIDN'T.
WELL, NOW YOU DON'T.
I WANT YOU TO BACK OFF AND LET
ME DEAL WITH MY OWN STUFF.
NIKOLAS: YOU'RE DEALING
WITH JASON MORGAN.
OK, I -- I ALMOST DIED
BECAUSE I WAS STANDING NEXT
TO HIM.
I WANT YOU TO STAY ALIVE,
ELIZABETH.
IF MY BROTHER WAS STILL HERE,
HE WOULD NOT BACK OFF.
ELIZABETH: DON'T MAKE THIS
ABOUT LUCKY.
I AM HAVING ENOUGH TROUBLE
WITHOUT YOU MAKING IT WORSE.
NIKOLAS: OK.
IT MIGHT HELP YOU IF YOU'D SPEND
TIME WITH THE PEOPLE WHO LOVE
YOU.
OK, TODAY'S MY MOTHER'S
BIRTHDAY.
I'M ON MY WAY OVER THERE.
COME WITH ME.
YOU KNOW LULU WOULD LOVE TO SEE
YOU.
ELIZABETH: I CAN'T.
I'M SORRY.
I CAN'T.
NIKOLAS: ELIZABETH,
YOU'RE PRACTICALLY IN HIDING
BECAUSE YOU KNOW THIS THING
WITH YOU -- BETWEEN
YOU AND JASON IS A COLOSSAL
MISTAKE.
ELIZABETH: STOP TELLING ME
WHAT TO DO.

JUAN: SORRY I WAS SUCH
A PAIN.
EMILY: OH, WELL, YOU WORK
REALLY WELL WHEN YOU'RE ANGRY.
JUAN: I'M NOT ANGRY.
I JUST HAVE THIS THING ABOUT
GETTING SOMEWHERE ON MY OWN,
THAT'S ALL.
EMILY: WHEN YOU FOUND OUT
SONNY WAS YOUR FATHER,
YOU WANTED TO BE LIKE HIM.
JUAN: AND THAT WAS A MISTAKE.
AND I DON'T WANT TO MAKE THAT
MISTAKE AGAIN TRYING TO BE LIKE
MIGUEL MOREZ.
I'D RATHER BE, LIKE,
THIS AMAZING YOUNG BUSINESS
PHENOMENON LIKE NOBODY ELSE.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
EMILY: YEAH, I KNOW WHAT
YOU MEAN.
YOU WANT TO BE KNOWN FOR WHO
YOU ARE, NOT WHO YOUR FATHER IS.
JUAN: YEAH.
DO YOU KNOW THE BEST THING ABOUT
WORKING HERE?
EMILY: NED AND CHLOE ARE
BASICALLY CLEAN?
JUAN: NED AND CHLOE ARE
INTO SOUND.
EMILY: WHAT?
JUAN: CHECK OUT THE FULL-BAND
WIDTH SYSTEM ON THIS.
EMILY: FULL-BAND WHAT?
[MUSIC PLAYS]
JUAN: THE FULL-BAND WIDTH
SYSTEM.
EMILY: WOW.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
EMILY: DO YOU HEAR SOMETHING?
JUAN: THAT'S JUST THE SUBS.
IT'S -- NORMAL SYSTEMS,
YOU DON'T FEEL IT.
EMILY: NO, NO, NO, NO, NO.
I HEAR SOMETHING ELSE.
I'M SURE.
TAGGERT: WELL, WELL, WELL.
I THOUGHT SO.

ROY: ANYWAY, OUR WORKER IS
DOWN IN E.R., AND THEY SENT ME
UP HERE TO GET THE WORKER'S COMP
PAPERWORK.
BOBBIE: OH, SURE.
JUST A SECOND.
AUDREY: HERE YOU ARE.
BOBBIE: THANKS.
ROY: GREAT.
I'M SORRY IF I BROKE
IN ON AN IMPORTANT CONVERSATION
THERE.
IT SOUNDED LIKE YOU HAD QUITE
A HEAD OF STEAM GOING.
BOBBIE: WELL, I GUESS I GOT
A LITTLE CARRIED AWAY, SO --
ROY: NO, NO, I THOUGHT
YOU MADE A LOT OF GOOD POINTS.
AMY: SO IT IS TRUE.
ROY DiLUCCA ALIVE AND WELL.
HI.
ROY: AMY, HI.
HOW ARE YOU?
AMY: GOOD.
ROY: GOSH.
AMY: DO YOU BELIEVE THIS?
BOBBIE: JUST BARELY.
WELL, ANYWAY, HERE'S
YOUR PAPERWORK.
AND I HAVE SOME PATIENTS I HAVE
TO GO SEE, SO -- IF YOU WANT
TO HAVE A SEAT.
AMY: THIS IS LIKE THE MOST
INCREDIBLE DEJA VU.
IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN,
WEREN'T YOU GUYS KIND OF,
LIKE, HOT TOGETHER?
BOBBIE: AMY, COME ON.
I'LL SEE YOU.
AMY: SEE YOU, ROY.
ROY: BYE, AMY.
BYE.

TAGGERT: WELL, I'M GETTING
"CAUGHT RED-HANDED" VIBES.
WHAT WERE YOU UP TO?
EMILY: NOTHING.
JUAN: I WAS JUST SHOWING
EMILY THE FULL-BAND --
EMILY: THE FULL-BAND WIDTH --
JUAN: FULL-BAND WIDTH SYSTEM.
TAGGERT: MM-HMM.
JUAN: SO WHAT'S UP?
TAGGERT: GOT YOU SOMETHING.
MERRY CHRISTMAS.
JUAN: I DIDN'T GET
YOU ANYTHING?
TAGGERT: WELL, THAT WAS A BIG
MISTAKE.
JUAN: IS THIS FOR WHERE WE'RE
GOING TO BE LIVING?
TAGGERT: QUICK MIND ON THIS
KID, TOO, HUH?
EMILY: OH.
SO YOU GUYS REALLY ARE MOVING
INTO BOBBIE SPENCER'S
BROWNSTONE?
TAGGERT: WELL, I TOLD
HER TO EXPECT US RIGHT AFTER
THE FIRST.
JUAN: YOU KNOW, I'M NOT
GETTING UP AT 5:00 A.M. EVERY
MORNING TO RUN 10 MILES THROUGH
THE SNOW BEFORE SCHOOL.
TAGGERT: WHO YOU KIDDING?
AT MY HOUSE, THE ROOSTER CACKLES
AT 0400.
BY 0500, WE'LL BE HEADING BACK
HOME.
SO YOU GOT ANY PLANS
FOR CHRISTMAS?
EMILY: YEAH.
HE'S COMING OVER TO MY HOUSE.
JUAN: AND FOR CHRISTMAS
EVE --
EMILY: SHH!
JUAN: I'M GOING TO
THE G.H. CHRISTMAS PARTY --
EMILY: DON'T SAY IT.
JUAN: BECAUSE MY GIRLFRIEND'S
DRESSING UP LIKE AN ELF.
EMILY: I'M DOING IT
FOR THE KIDS.
AND IF A CERTAIN PERSON
DOESN'T STOP TEASING ME,
HE'S GOING TO BE ON MY BAD-ELF
LIST.
[PAGER BEEPS]
TAGGERT: OH, YOU KNOW WHAT?
I'M SUPPOSED TO BE THERE,
TOO, SO I GUESS I'LL SEE
YOU GUYS THERE.
START PACKING.
JUAN: HEY, TAGGERT --
I'LL TRY NOT TO GET IN THE WAY
OF YOUR ACTION.
TAGGERT: MERRY CHRISTMAS,
MR. SANTIAGO.
MISS QUARTERMAINE.
JUAN: MERRY CHRISTMAS.
I'M STAYING IN PORT CHARLES!
EMILY: YES!
THE BEST CHRISTMAS PRESENT EVER!
YEAH!
JUAN: YAY.

ELIZABETH: HEY.
HERE'S LUNCH.
AND HERE IS --
THE BEST BARGAIN OF THE YEAR.
ELIZABETH: I KNOW, I KNOW.
IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE MUCH.
BUT OF ALL THE TREES THAT WERE
BEING SOLD ON THE CORNER,
THIS ONE -- THIS ONE IS
THE HAPPIEST TO BE BROUGHT HOME
BECAUSE IT WAS PRETTY SURE IT
WASN'T GOING TO GET PICKED.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT
CHRISTMAS TREES -- IF THEY'RE
HAPPY, THEN THEY MAKE THE ENTIRE
ROOM HAPPY.
THE COUPLE WHO RUN THE LOT,
THEY REMEMBER ME FROM LAST YEAR
WHEN -- WHEN I PICKED OUT A TREE
ALMOST EXACTLY LIKE THAT.
ANYHOW, THEY PRACTICALLY GAVE IT
TO ME, SO, HEY, NOW WE HAVE
A CHRISTMAS TREE.
AND WAIT TILL WE GET THROUGH
WITH IT.
IT'S GOING TO BE SO BEAUTIFUL.
OH, LOOK.
I GOT LIGHTS.
LOTS OF LIGHTS.
JASON: HOW WERE THINGS
AT KELLY'S?
ELIZABETH: OK.
HERE.
I RAN INO NIKOLAS, BUT LET'S
NOT GO THERE, OK?
THE TREE WAS ALWAYS THE BEST
PART OF CHRISTMAS AT HOME.
JASON: WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
AT YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S HOUSE?
ELIZABETH: UH-UH.
NO, WITH MY PARENTS WHEN I WAS
GROWING UP.
JASON: YOU GET TO SEE
YOUR PARENTS FOR CHRISTMAS?
ELIZABETH: IT'S TOO HARD
TO GET TO WHERE THEY ARE
IN EUROPE.
JASON: WHAT ABOUT
YOUR SISTER?
ELIZABETH: OH, SHE LIVES
WITH A ROOMMATE WHOSE FAMILY
GOES TO SWITZERLAND TO SKI EVERY
YEAR, SO SHE'S WITH THEM.
GRAM NORMALLY BUYS BIG TREES,
BUT I LIKE THIS SIZE.
THIS SIZE IS PERFECT,
@N'T YOU THINK?
WHY ARE YOU NOT EATING?
ARE YOU NOT HUNGRY?
WHY DO YOU HAVE YOUR JACKET ON?
ARE YOU COLD?
JASON, ARE YOU NOT FEELING WELL
AGAIN?
JASON: I WENT FOR A WALK.
ELIZABETH: THAT'S YOUR IDEA
OF TAKING IT EASY?
JASON: OH, NO, IT WAS GOOD
TO BE OUT, BUT THEN --
ELIZABETH: BUT NOW YOU'RE
EXHAUSTED AND PROBABLY CAUGHT
A COLD.
JASON: NO, IT'S JUST KIND
OF HARD TO TAKE THIS JACKET OFF.
ELIZABETH: OH.
JASON: YEAH, MY ARM'S
A LITTLE STIFFER THAN I THOUGHT
IT WAS.
ELIZABETH: RIGHT.
AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHY
YOU SHOULDN'T BE GOING OUT
AT ALL.
JASON: YOU GOING TO HELP ME?
ELIZABETH: MAYBE.
YOU GOING TO HELP ME?
JASON: WITH WHAT?
ELIZABETH: WELL,
DECORATING THE TREE, OF COURSE.
HOW ARE YOU WITH PAPER AND GLUE?
JASON: FORGET IT.
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW WHAT?
TOO LATE.
I'M ALREADY HELPING YOU OFF
WITH YOUR JACKET.

LESLEY: YOU DON'T SEE THIS.
YOU'RE STILL AT THE STORE.
LAURA: HI.
LESLEY: HI.
LAURA: YOU KNOW,
MOM, YOU KNOW THERE ARE SOME
BIRTHDAYS THAT YOU LIKE
TO CELEBRATE AND OTHERS THAT
YOU'D KIND OF JUST LIKE
TO FORGET ABOUT.
WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE TO JUST
FORGET ABOUT THIS ONE THIS YEAR?
LESLEY: NOT POSSIBLE.
BESIDES, THOSE LOOK SUSPICIOUSLY
LIKE A BIRTHDAY PRESENT.
LAURA: THE FLOWERS?
LESLEY: UH-HUH.
LAURA: THEY'RE FROM STEFAN.
HE BROUGHT THEM OVER.
AND HE ALSO MET OUR NEW BORDER.
LESLEY: UH-HUH.
AND HOW DID HE REACT TO ROY?
LAURA: PRETTY MUCH THE WAY
YOU'D EXPECT.
ACTUALLY, I THINK THAT HE WAS
REALLY VERY HURT AND VERY ANGRY.
I DIDN'T HANDLE IT WELL.
LAURA: I THINK I SHOULD'VE
TRIED TO EXPLAIN TO HIM THAT --
I'M TRYING TO FILL AN EMPTY
ROOM -- LUCKY'S.
I'M TRYING TO PUT SOME LIFE
INTO THAT ROOM BECAUSE I THINK
THAT'S GOING TO HELP ME THROUGH
THE HOLIDAYS, YOU KNOW?
IT'S THE FIRST CHRISTMAS
WITHOUT HIM.
I'M --
I'M SORRY.
AND THERE'S ALSO THE DIVORCE.
LESLEY: THESE ARE VERY ROUGH
WATERS YOU'RE TRYING
TO NAVIGATE.
I'M REALLY PROUD OF HOW YOU'RE
MANAGING IT.
I AM JUST SO PROUD OF YOU.
LAURA: THANK YOU.
THAT'S REALLY THE BEST PRESENT
YOU COULD HAVE GIVEN ME.
[DOORBELL RINGS]
LAURA: EXCUSE ME.
NIKOLAS: HAPPY BIRTHDAY
HERE YOU GO.
LAURA: THANK YOU.
NIKOLAS: YOU READY
TO CELEBRATE?
LAURA: DO I HAVE A CHOICE?
NIKOLAS and LESLEY: NO.

FAISON: I'M SORRY, FELICIA.
THAT BULLET WAS MEANT
FOR SPENCER.

ELIZABETH: WHY DIDN'T
YOU TELL ME YOU WERE
A PAPER CHAIN EXPERT?
JASON: JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS,
MA'AM.
SO WHAT DO WE DO WITH ALL THIS
EXTRA?
DECORATE THE WOODS?
ELIZABETH: OH, ABSOLUTELY.
STILL TRYING TO DECIDE WHAT
TO MAKE FOR THE TREE TOPPER.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
AND DON'T SAY A BASEBALL CAP.
JASON: YOU'RE THE ARTIST.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
ELIZABETH: LAST YEAR,
I DECORATED A TREE WITH LUCKY.
AND FOR THE TREE TOPPER I MADE
A GUITAR.
HE LOVED THAT GUITAR.
BUT THIS YEAR I THINK I'M GOING
TO DO A STAR OR AN ANGEL.
I CAN'T DECIDE.
YOU CHOOSE.
JASON: YOU KNOW, I'VE NEVER
SEEN THE POINT OF CHRISTMAS
TREES.
THEY LOOK BETTER DECORATED
IN PINE CONES AND SNOW LIKE
YOU FIND THEM IN THE WOODS.
ELIZABETH: THEN YOU OBVIOUSLY
HAVE NEVER SEEN A TRULY PERFECT
CHRISTMAS TREE.
THIS ONE IS GOING TO CHANGE
YOUR MIND AS SOON AS I DECIDE
WHAT TO GO ON TOP.
JASON: ANGELS ARE SUPPOSED
TO WATCH OVER THINGS.
AND THAT TREE NEEDS ALL THE HELP
IT CAN GET.
ELIZABETH: YOU ARE SUCH
A BRAT.
GIVE ME THOSE.
HERE, HOLD THAT.

MAC: DROP IT ON THE FLOOR,
FAISON.
ON THE FLOOR!
NICE AND EASY.
FAISON: YOU TAKE IT EASY.
TAKE IT EASY.
MAC: ON THE FLOOR.
FAISON: YOUR WIFE IS
BEAUTIFUL, ISN'T SHE?
MAC: STAY RIGHT THERE,
FAISON.
RIGHT THERE.
THAT'S IT.
MAC: NOW!
HOW IS SHE?
LUKE: SHE'S LOST SOME BLOOD,
BUT IT STOPPED BLEEDING.
MAC: LET'S GO.
LET'S GET HER TO A HOSPITAL.
LET'S GO, FAISON.
