Carly: We're home early, aren't we?
A.J.: I'm meeting with grandfather about our party for ELQ Tomorrow night.
Shouldn't you be going over the last-minute details with reginald?
Carly: No. Actually, you know what? Let me redefine that.
Reginald definitely should because it's his job. But i'm way too busy here.
A.J.: We're expecting several european partners, carly.
Carly: And your point would be what?
A.J.: You see, you're not getting this.
A.J.: This is a very important party. Our family has always made a point on presenting a united front here.
Carly: That's funny. I guess nobody bothered to mention it to alan and monica, then, did they?
A.J., what's the big deal? Your secretary can plan the party. You'll do just fine with the european investors. Tell them i got a headache.
A.J.: Hey -- you will be there. You have no choice.
Mike: Hey, there, hi, there, ho, there.
Tammy: Hey, yourself. Wow. You look nice.
Mike: Meeting gertrude. I'll be glad when this job is done.
Tammy: Well, you know, gertrude's going to have to be a pretty strong woman to resist you.
Mike: Well, i hadn't really noticed that i had that effect on women.
Tammy: Look at me.
Mike: I am. I do. But, you know, you shouldn't flatter me that way because i'll just keep coming back for more.
Mike: You'll be here later?
Tammy: Yeah. Why don't you stop by? Maybe i'll let you buy me a bite.
Mike: You're on.
Elizabeth: Oh, wow. This is great. Juan, you are so lucky. I'm telling you, this place has kelly's beat hands down when it comes to cool.
Juan: Well, if you consider sweeping floors cool, which i don't. I mean, i do it and i do it great, but i have my eyes on a bigger prize.
Emily: Another thing that's really cool about this place is chloe morgan design. I mean, they have some of the hottest stuff right now. They're constantly getting calls from london, milan, paris. It's totally glamorous.
Chloe: Help. Help. Take it.
Emily: Oh, here. I got it.
Chloe: Thank you, thank you.
Chloe: Oh, i just need to look at the files. Can you take those to the fitting room?
Juan: Yeah, yeah. No problem.
Chloe: Thanks. Just be careful with the sketches.
Chloe: Oh, thank you.
Emily: Got it.
Juan: You got it?
Chloe: Oh, hi. Elizabeth webber, right?
Elizabeth: Yeah. Right. It's nice to see you again.
Chloe: Nice to see you, too. How's art treating you?
Elizabeth: Like an ugly stepchild.
Elizabeth: But i tend to work harder when i'm underestimated, so i keep telling myself that it's a good thing.
Chloe: And you're right.
chloe: Oh, excuse me.
Chloe: L&b/chloe morgan designs. Yes, therese. I have it right here somewhere. It's in a pink envelope. Did i drop it on the floor? It's -- hang on.
Chloe: I know -- oh. Thank you. Thanks. Hang on. All right. We need 300 units delivered --
chloe: Could you get that for me? Thank you. For the first, and -- well, actually, the sixth. I'm sorry. I was looking at the --
elizabeth: L&b/chloe morgan. May i help you?
Chloe: The black satin bolts, the cream silk --
Chloe: The red and blue that we were talking about.
Elizabeth: Ok. It's noon tomorrow? Would that be noon tokyo time or new york time?
Chloe: 100 of those, yes.
Jason: 12,000 pounds of arabica beans. Our usual price plus 10% discount.
Sonny: Ok. That's beautiful. Wow. Hey -- hold on a second. Um -- while you were out of town, elizabeth webber stopped by. She -- she said she's worried about you.
Jason: Did elizabeth seem all right?
Sonny: Well, aside from being worried about you, she, you know -- she's fine. She said you didn't return her phone calls. I mean --
Sonny: You know, jason, you got an answering machine. It'd be nice every once in a while to check it.
Jason: I should have figured that elizabeth would try to reach me. She's trying to be tough and brave because that's what she thinks that people expect. This whole bomb thing i know scared her, and every time she gets scared or confused or mad, she calls me.
Sonny: Yeah, she mentioned that.
Jason: Yeah, not that i do much. I just, you know, take her for rides. Sometimes i just listen. But seems to help. You know, a light goes on inside her and she smiles and it seems that she's -- i got to get to the warehouse.
Carly: Doesn't this ever bore you, A.J. -- the threats and the blackmail and the whole --
A.J.: I'm just trying to make the best of a situation that you've created, carly. Now, here, listen to me, all right? You stay with me on this.
A.J.: You see, you are an asset to me in public. It's useful for the CEO Of ELQ To have a smart, charming, beautiful wife. Now, if you were to drop out and stop functioning in that way, well, then you would no longer be of any use to me. As far as our son goes, well, he's proven that he's que adaptable. I'm sure he can get along just fine without his mommy.
Carly: You will never take my son away from me. Do you think i'm hell to live with now? You try it. You have no idea.
A.J.: Well, then i guess you better start cooperating!
Carly: I will make your life miserable if you try to come between me and my son.
A.J.: The harder you fight, the more grounds you give me to -- more ground you give me to take away my son, carly. And to throw your little butt back in ferncliff. And we both know that i can find a number of people to testify to your emotional instability. Come on. You want me to spell it out for you?
Carly: What the hell happened to you, man? Used to be something -- you know, compassion. Mercy. It's gone.
A.J.: I guess you burned it out of me. You have that effect on people. Now, sweetheart, shouldn't you be checking in on those canapes?
Edward: Put that phone down at once.
A.J.: What's your problem?
Edward: You don't know? Oh. Why doesn't that surprise me? All right, i'll tell you. Thanks to your shoddy management, ELQ Is facing another dock strike. Oh. What was i thinking counting on you instead of ned? Oh.
Elizabeth: You, too. Bye-bye.
Chloe: Then 47 bolts of the green. Yeah. It's going to take that much.
Elizabeth: Here you go.
Chloe: I'm telling you right now, therese, and i do need it --
ned: It's legible. Hallelujah! Competence. Please tell me that someone hired you while i was away.
Elizabeth: Oh, sorry. I was just helping out.
Chloe's on long distance, and emily and juan are in the back.
Ned: Oh. Well, thanks for pitching in.
Elizabeth: You're welcome.
Chloe: I will call them this afternoon. Thanks a lot. Ciao. You are a lifesaver.
Elizabeth: Oh, please. It's no big deal. I actually worked as a receptionist once, in a modeling agency.
Chloe: Well, if you ever get the urge to revive your old career, please let me know.
Elizabeth: Do you mean it?
Chloe: I might. I -- my regular assistant is too far away to be much help here, and i've had a horrible time with the agency. Do you think you might be interested?
Elizabeth: Are you kidding? I would love the chance to work with you, except it can only be part-time because i'm still in college.
Chloe: Oh -- and you have your job at kelly's.
Elizabeth: Yeah, but bobbie and tammy are really cool. I mean, they let me work around my school schedule and they've accommodated more than one upheaval in my life. And the truth is i just got this new place and i'm paying rent on my own, so i was kind of looking for something else other than waitressing.
Chloe: Well, how about this -- why don't we both sit on the thought and see what happens?
Chloe: Yeah. No, thank you. That was a very nice save earlier. Thanks.
Elizabeth: And where have you two been hiding?
Juan: Uh -- we had a little accident in the fitting room.
Chloe: Should i prepare myself? No. You know what? Never mind. Just -- show me. Ooh.
Elizabeth: I better go before i'm late for my shift.
Emily: Ok. Well, i just -- one question. Are you sure that you're not secretly angry about me overreacting about you and jason?
Elizabeth: I swear. It's forgotten, ok?
Elizabeth: All right. I'll call you later.
Emily: Ok. Bye.
Emily: Ah, look who it is -- my favorite cousin!
Ned: Oh. Is that butter i smell?
Emily: Oh, not at all. No buttering needed whatsoever.
Emily: You are going to thank me after i do you the biggest favor in the entire world.
Ned: Ok. You have my attention.
Emily: Ok. You ready?
Emily: I have just discovered the hottest new star of l&b records. And all you have to do is sit and listen.
Hannah: The timer was triggered by a door lock. Same principle as wiring a car's ignition. Just your run-of-the-mill incendiary device. Unfortunately, it left us nothing for us to trace.
Mac: Yeah, well, if that bomb would have detonated, elizabeth webber would have died the same way sonny's wife did. Yet another innocent woman's life would be sacrificed.
Hannah: Well, what makes you so sure the bomb was intended for sonny when the evidence clearly shows that whoever planted it wanted jason morgan killed?
Mac: Is that the official hypothesis of the FBI Or your own? Look, any strike against morgan is just a way to remove an obstacle to get to the real target -- sonny. Now, i assume it's still a priority of the FBI To put sonny behind bars.
Hannah: Yes, of course.
Mac: Hannah, i would do a much better job of suppressing your feelings for sonny corinthos. In fact, why don't you bury them? It's not a very reassuring quality in an FBI Liaison.
Dara: The synthetic hair strand we took from wyndemere is a match for the wig in faison's possession.
Mac: Did you subpoena helena cassadine's bank records for the murder trial?
Mac: Yeah, well, we seized some of faison's records from one of his hideouts. If any of these figures match up, we've got our link between helena cassadine and cesar faison.
Ned: Why the cloak-and-dagger routine? Listen, if juan wants to audition for me, he can do it out in the open just like everybody else.
Emily: Please just do this for me.
ned: I can't believe i'm hiding in my own studio from a teenager.
Emily: You won't regret it. I promise.
Ned: We'll see.
Juan: Chloe's got, like, a million swatches to catalog, so she doesn't want to be disturbed for a while.
Emily: Good. Then there's something you can do for me.
Juan: That depends.
Emily: On what?
Juan: How grateful my girlfriend will be.
Emily: That grateful.
Juan: Mmm. How can i refuse?
Juan: All right. Let's see. Ahem. Tonight we'll celebrate the love that we just made let's cherish every moment that we spent together if only for one night our love won't be denied if you just hold me in your arms baby, we'll keep it going on we got the night don't hesitate seems like the time [telephone rings] juan: Is slipping away don't let our love ned: Sorry to interrupt.
Yeah. L&b/chloe morgan.
Juan: You knew ned was there?
Gertrude, i was just on my way to the port charles hotel to beg you to see me again.
Gertrude: Well, i'm glad i saved you a trip. I thought i made myself clear the other day. Deserting a woman on the eve of the millennium is unspeakably cruel. Now, if you will excuse me.
Mike: No, i -- i deserve your animosity. But if you could find it in your heart to forgive such a careless, insensitive --
gertrude: Neglectful --
mike: Unthinkably neglectful act. Perhaps i could find a way to make it up to you.
Gertrude: Well, i suppose it's not totally out of the question. I might allow you to escort me to a very exclusive ELQ Party tomorrow night. Cocktails are at 8:00.
Mike: I -- i'm afraid it's really not a good idea for me to escort you to a quartermaine party.
Gertrude: Let me get this straight. You're deserting me twice?
Mike: Well, i hadn't really accepted the invitation.
Mike: Ok. Ok. This is the deal. As enchanting as i find your company, there is someone else, someone that i care for. And the time that you and i have spent together has made me realize just how much.
Gertrude: Well, that's wonderful. I'm so glad i could help you in this. Will you just get out of my way, you horrible little man! I never want to speak to you again!
Mike: Don't write.
Edward: I spent a king's ransom on that fool crane that you wanted and what good will it do ELQ If the longshoremen go on strike?
A.J.: If they go on strike, which they won't.
Edward: Oh. Why should i accept empty assurances from a man who has had months and still has not resolved the union's health care issues? You know, A.J., you'd make a hell of a politician with your cavalier disregard for deadlines. But you are a CEO, And you have brought this company right to the brink of disaster.
A.J.: That's not true.
Edward: Oh --
A.J.: I'm doing my job and standing by it -- as you never let me forget, which is to save ELQ Money.
Edward: You won't be saving this company a dime if that shipping division shuts down. You know, the only way that we're going to avoid a full-blown strike is to crawl back to sonny corinthos with our tails between our legs and you know how that galls me! Ned would never have allowed this to get this serious.
A.J.: Oh, how quickly we forget. Ned was faced with the same situation two years ago when the union struck.
Edward: Yes, but he negotiated like a leader. He came up with a resolution that was financially savvy --
Edward: And it was equitable. But you? You overcompensate. You are so busy trying to prove yourself that -- that you make tactical errors. You push when you should me making concessio. What?
A.J.: You know what? If i'd backed down, you would've said i was too soft on the unions! I don't get it! I can't worry about you anymore because we know that's impossible. I can't please you. My job is to do what's best for ELQ!
Edward: You don't know what's best for ELQ! I'm disappointed in you, A.J.You know that? And the only thing you have to recommend you is your wife!
Monica: Edward, i'm not going to stand around and let you browbeat my son.
A.J.: I can handle this.
Edward: You can't handle anything! Thanks to you, ELQ Is in jeopardy. Now, look, young man, if you can't do your job, you are going to be removed!
A.J.: Is that a threat?
Edward: That is a promise. You are down to your last chance. I mean it.
[tap on window]
elizabeth: Excuse me for a minute, ok?
Jason, i never thought you would come back.
Jason: I had to leave town for a couple days. I'm sorry i didn't get a chance to let you know.
Elizabeth: Oh. Well, i felt pretty dumb after sonny explained. But, you know, with everything going on and i hadn't heard from you, i -- i was just afraid that something happened.
Jason: I understand.
Elizabeth: So the next time you go away, think you can warn me?
Jason: Well, it's -- it's not good for you to know too much about where i go or what i do.
Elizabeth: Oh, right, right. Hey, guess what. The police said i get to move back into my studio tomorrow.
Bobbie's trying to talk me out of it, and my gram is going to absolutely flip when she hears about the bomb, but --
jason: So you didn't tell your grandmother?
Elizabeth: The last thing i need right now is another round with my gram about my safety.
Jason: Maybe she has a point.
Elizabeth, it was close. You almost died.
Elizabeth: But i didn't. And now whoever was after you knows that you're not staying with me anymore, so there's no more danger.
Jason: No, you are in danger as long as you're around me. So you can't be anymore. I'm sorry.
A.J.: I'm the CEO of ELQ And i cannot be removed without a vote from the board. Now, you could bark all you like, but my numbers speak for themselves. Profits are up.
Edward: Not for long. We are hemorrhaging money every day that that crane is out of operation. And ned would never have allowed a simple labor dispute to evolve into a full-blown disaster!
Alan: What is this about ned? I can hear you bellowing out in the driveway.
Monica: Oh, edward is threatening A.J. With ned again.
Alan: Save your theatrics, father.
A.J. Is not going to cave in to your bullying, and the board will back him and you know it.
Edward: On the contrary. I can name several board members who will gladly vote against him.
A.J.: All right, whatever. You know, i'd really love to stay and be your whipping boy, but there is a little matter about dealing with union reps.
Edward: No, no, no. You have done enough. I will handle the negotiations with the unions and you just get ready for tomorrow night, closing the deal with our european investors. I'm tired of all of this. I can't do everything myself.
Monica: A.J., are you ok?
A.J.: Yeah, i'm fine, you know. But i just kind of -- i don't know. I choose to look at it as a compliment for grandfather to threaten me like that. Just means he's a little bit intimidated. Excuse me.
Monica: Hmm. You think he really is that cool?
Alan: I'd like to think so. But i can tell you from experience that father's disappointment can really hurt.
Monica: What if edward's badgering just breaks him? What if he takes ELQ Away from him? I mean, i'd like to think he has the reserves, but what if they're all depleted and he starts drinking again?
Alan: Well, that temptation's always going to be there, so you can only focus on the positive, which is your life and your family.
Monica: And for A.J., that is us, michael, and lila.
Alan: Don't forget about carly.
Monica: I'd love to forget about carly. Carly is the worst thing that ever happened in his life. Alan, she undercuts him any chance she gets. She got edward believing that without her, A.J. Is practically worthless. We've got to prove otherwise.
Alan: I couldn't disagree with you more. The worst thing for A.J. Would be for his parents to try to sabotage his marriage.
Monica: Oh, it's not a marriage. It's a trap. And i cannot talk about this anymore because i have to go to the hospital.
Alan: Yeah? Well, i'll drive you and then we can talk about it some more.
Monica: What if i don't want to?
Alan: I don't give a damn.
Monica, you have got to drop this campaign against carly and focus on finding a way to keep ned out of ELQ!
Ned: Juan, you have a really good voice. But, of course, there's more to singing than just carrying a tune. You know, there's a lot of work involved -- touring, rehearsing, training your voice. I mean, singing with a band is a lot different than just singing along with your favorite c. D. , even at full blast. And of course you have to acquire a stage presence. Miguel, your father, he had an excellent stage presence, but he worked hard at it.
Juan: I don't want to be like my father. You know, i don't want to sing at all. I want to be an executive like you.
Ned: You turned out to be an excellent employee. Now, if you'll both excuse me, i got to get back to the studio.
Juan: How could you do that to me?
Emily: I thought i was helping.
Juan: You tricked me.
Emily: No, i didn't!
Juan, look, you have such a great voice. I just wanted --
juan: But that's miguel morez you're talking about. And the only way i could make it as a performer is if i ride in on his name. How lame would that be? Sponging off the fame of some guy i haven't even seen since i was a little kid. I thought you got it, emily. You know, i thought you understood. I need to make my own life.
Emily: I do get it. I just think that -- i mean, you're trying so hard to avoid singing when you're -- you're so good at it.
Juan: Maybe that's what you want. Maybe you want some hot new singer as a boyfrien but that's your problem because it's definitely not what i'm about.
Emily: Juan --
Carly: What in the hell are you doing here?
Sonny: I'm edward's guest. Is that a problem for you?
Carly: Well, you know what? If you have to come running whenever edward whistles, that's your problem. I'm under no obligation to keep you company, so --
sonny: Who asked you to?
Carly: Sonny, how is he?
Carly: Who else?
Sonny: I don't know, you know? He -- he works for me. That's all. I'm no more forgiven than you are.
Carly: That's not exactly true, now, is it? I mean, come on. At least, you know, you speak to him. You guys probably actually carry on conversations, right, when i'm not even allowed to get anywhere near him. I can't even -- you wouldn't wish this on me. I'm under house arrest, ok? My husband is holding my child hostage. Every time i try to go someplace, he threatens to have me recommitted.
Sonny: I thought you had more guts than that.
Carly: Excuse me?
Sonny: I know the deal jason worked out for you. You're free and clear.
Sonny: Legally sane. Unconditional release. Only way they can send you back to ferncliff now is if you ran around armed and dangerous.
Carly: No. You know what? You --
Carly: You pretend -- i mean, you think that you know everything. You don't know, ok? You have no idea what it's like to be locked up in a mental institution, ok? It's like hell. And my child would be here alone being raised by a bunch of crazy lunatic freaks whose idea of love is this dysfunctional -- sonny: Well, i never noticed you racking up points in the love department.
Carly: Maybe i trashed my own life, but i'm not going to trash michael's and i'm not going to let anybody else do that, either.
Sonny: Then why don't you start now by standing up to the quartermaines? You're only a victim if you let yourself be. Now, that's just my -- my, you know, observation.
Carly: For a worthless excuse for a human being -- selfish, too -- sometimes you actually have some -- something decent to say.
Sonny: I know how to take care of myself, same as you.
Edward: Reginald told me you were waiting.
Sonny: Yeah. And i'd like to know why.
Edward: We have business to discuss.
Carly: Edward, i was just keeping sonny company while he waits, and i took the liberty of inviting him to the ELQ Party tomorrow night.
Edward: Over my dead body.
Elizabeth: This doesn't make any sense. I mean, why shouldn't i see you? It's not as if anyone's trying to kill me.
Jason: Now, you know that's not the point. If someone wants me dead, you' my friend, you're in the line of fire.
Elizabeth: But what if that's a chance i want to take?
Jason: I won't.
Elizabeth: But don't you understand? The only time i don't hurt is when i'm with you. You're the only person who listens to me with no expectations. I can't go back to who i was before, trying to -- you know, pretending to be all happy and plastering this smile across my face so that, God forbid, no one's disappointed if i'm not healing as quickly as they think i should be.
Jason: No one's saying you have to go back to being anything you don't want to be. But you don't need me to live the life that you want.
Elizabeth: Well, i say i do. And i can make my own decisions. You just agreed. And so i decide that we are going to be friends, which means we are going to have to see each other. End of story.
Jason: I don't want to fight with you, elizabeth.
Elizabeth: Then don't. You don't let anyone else make decisions for you. So why is it fair for you to make decisions for me?
Jason: Look, i know that. I hated it when people tried to tell me what to do or who to be or how to live. But now i understand why they did it. It's harder to watch someone you care about get hurt than it is to hurt yourself. There's no way i am putting you in danger again. I'm sorry. I didn't want it to be this way, but i can't see you.
Elizabeth: We can still go for motorcycle rides and stuff, though, right? I mean --
jason: No, elizabeth.
Elizabeth: It's dark out when we go. No one will see us.
Jason: Elizabeth, it's -- it's done.
Elizabeth: Fine. That's fine. You know why? Because i don't need one more person in my life who thinks i'm some precious doll that needs to be wrapped in cotton and protected.
Jason: Elizabeth, i'm sorry. I --
elizabeth: You know what? So am i. Because out of everyone i know, i thought you were different. I thought you understood. My mistake.
Ned: Did emily ever mention that juan wanted to be a singer?
Chloe: No. No.
Ned: She arranged to have me hear him today.
Chloe: Oh. Well, how was it?
Ned: Well, he's got a decent voice. You know, it needs polishing.
Ned: Uh -- yeah, yeah. I mean, it's possible. It's possible. I mean, it didn't really leap out at me.
Chloe: Well, what did you tell him?
Ned: Well, i let him down easy. I warned him about the differences between singing for fun and, you know, doing it for a living, the hours of grueling rehearsal, the endless touring, the demanding fans.
Chloe: Sounds like you hated it.
Ned: I loved it. But eddie maine is in the past. No point in revisiting him.
Mike: Oh -- listen, i'm sorry to barge in, but i want to let you know right away i -- i resign.
Mike: Yeah. Look, there's no way this is going to work. And i'm not blowing my chance with tammy over this.
Ned: You were hired to preform a service. You're in breach.
Chloe: I think it's great that mike would set aside profit for love.
Mike: Well, it's not exactly love, but i'd like a chance to find out what it is.
Chloe: I still think that is very romantic.
Ned: Well, i don't. I think it's negligent. And i want my money back.
Mike: Ok. It's all here. Minus the cost of the suits, which you ordered me to buy. And look, if it's any consolation, this wouldn't work past tomorrow night anyway. Gertrude invited me to a quartermaine party and the second that edward or A.J. Laid an eye on me, it would've been over.
Ned: Thanks for nothing.
Chloe: Oh, stop. Mike's been a great help to us.
Ned: Really? Now, how does that work?
Chloe: Well, we know a lot more about gertrude's vulnerabilities than we ever did before. And we can use that to our advantage when we coach our next candidate.
Mike: Well, whoever he i i wish him luck. Excuse me.
Ned: Now what?
Helena: I knew that coat would be perfect on you. Well, you appear to be brimming with news. Tell me.
Man: You'll be pleased to know that everything went exactly as planned. Your bankers called to notify you that the pcpd is investigating your records.
Helena: I knew comm. Scorpio wouldn't disappoint. Soon he will discover the link between faison and me, and i will have faison precisely where i want him.
Mac: Scorpio. Thank you. Bingo.
Mac: Over the past year, helena cassadine made three sizable transfers to faison's account.
Dara: You think faison is working for helena.
Mac: Faison -- faison is a mercenary. He's not here just to mess with me. No. He's -- he's here to do a job. Question is, what is -- what is helena cassadine paying cesar faison to do?
Ned: If you ask me, you were far too nice to mike.
Chloe: I couldn't help it. He's very charming. And he obviously has a lot of integrity. Besides, who can blame him for not being able to stand gertrude? We just have to find someone who can, fast.
Ned: Spoken like a woman who's motivated.
Chloe: Everything changed between jax and me on new year's eve. I just want to be able to be with him openly, whenever i want.
Ned: I know the feeling. Having an affair with alexis these past few months has been fun, but the joys of infidelity are wearing thin.
Chloe: Yeah. So as much as i think we've both enjoyed this, i think we've agreed -- we want it over.
Ned: I think i have a solution.
Ned: You'll see, tomorrow night at the quartermaine party.
Mike: What do you think?
Tammy: I like you better without the tie.
Mike: Oh, thank God.
Tammy: Hey, mike, listen. I hope you don't think i was following you earlier. See, i was out running some errands. I really -- i had no idea i'd run into you in the park.
Mike: Well, i was kind of hoping that you -- you had followed me to the park, but whatever. I'm glad you showed up when you did because seeing you had me make a change of plans. I quit.
Tammy: Mike, you didn't have to do that.
Mike: Ah. I did. Now, i'm afraid this means no big nights on the town or lavish dinners at the p. C. Grill for a while. I hope you like walks in the park, hot dogs, and the zoo.
Tammy: Well, how did you know? Those are my three favorite things.
jason's voice: Elizabeth, i'm sorry. I –
elizabeth's voice: You know what? So am i. Because out of everyone i know, i thought you were different. I thought you understood. My mistake.
Carly: I do hope you'll be able to join us tomorrow evening.
Sonny: Um -- i think i can clear my schedule.
Edward: I asked you here to negotiate a compromise with the union, not to invite you to a private party.
Sonny: All right. Let me get this straight. You want a favor, but i am not good enough to attend a party in your home?
Edward: How dare you. You're the cheat. You are an unscrupulous, immoral blackguard, and i would rather go bankrupt than to have you cross this threshold.
Lila: Edward, why on earth are you being so rude to mr. Corinthos?
Carly: I think it might have something to do with the fact that i invited sonny to the ELQ Party tomorrow night.
Lila: Oh, please say that you will join us. I do so enjoy your company.
Sonny: I'd be honored to, lila.
Edward: Lila, if you're quite through flirting, i would like to discuss something with you in private.
