JAX: YES, WE'LL BE CHECKING
IN AUGUST 2 OF 2000.
SURE, WE'LL TAKE THE PENTHOUSE.
ALL RIGHT, THANKS VERY MUCH.
ALEXIS: WHERE ARE YOU GOING?
AND WHY ON AUGUST 2?
JAX: WHERE ARE WE GOING,
AND HAVE YOU EVER BEEN
TO THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC?
ALEXIS: NO.
JAX: WELL, IT'S AN IDYLLIC
SPOT FOR A PAINLESS DIVORCE.
AND SINCE IT'S EXACTLY
SIX MONTHS, 14 DAYS TO THE FIRST
ANNIVERSARY OF NED AND CHLOE'S
WEDDING,
I'M GOING TO DIVORCE YOU ON THAT
VERY DATE.
ALEXIS: OH.
IT'S A GOOD THING WE'RE NOT
REALLY MARRIED OR THAT WOULD'VE
HURT MY FEELINGS.
JAX: AW.
SWEET --
ALEXIS: NO, NO.
YOU KNOW, YOU ARE THE SECOND
BEST RELATIONSHIP --
JAX: SECOND?
ALEXIS: NOT THE FIRST,
SECOND.
TWO, TWO.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
SIX MONTHS IS A VERY LONG TIME
AWAY.
IT'S LONG.
JAX: YEAH, IT IS A LONG TIME,
ISN'T IT?
ALEXIS: MM-HMM.
JAX: THAT'S WHY I PLAN
TO SPEND AS MUCH OF IT
WITH CHLOE AS I POSSIBLY CAN.
ALEXIS: FINE.
I SUPPORT EQUAL OPPORTUNITY
CHEATING.
JAX: YEAH, I KNOW YOU DO.
ALL RIGHT, WISH ME LUCK.
I HAVE A MEETING WITH THE MOST
SURLY SOFTWARE MANUFACTURER
IN THE BUSINESS.
ALEXIS: HE DOESN'T STAND
A CHANCE.
JAX: WELL, I'LL TELL HIM
YOU SAID THAT.
ALEXIS: HMM.

TAMMY: AND HOW ARE THINGS
GOING AT BOBBIE'S?
ELIZABETH: OH, SHE'S BEEN
WONDERFUL.
THE PROBLEM IS ME.
TAMMY: WHAT'S WRONG?
ELIZABETH: I ALREADY HAVE
A PLACE TO LIVE, TAMMY.
IT'S TIME I GOT BACK
TO MY STUDIO.
WHAT?
TAMMY: NOTHING.
ELIZABETH: TAMMY?
TAMMY: WELL --
I MEAN, ELIZABETH, THE PLACE
NEARLY GOT BLOWN UP BY A BOMB.
I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW YOU SLEEP
AT NIGHT.
ELIZABETH: THE ENTIRE AREA
HAS BEEN CHECKED AND RECHECKED.
THERE'S NO DANGER, SO WHY
SHOULDN'T I GO BACK?
TAMMY: OK.
PICTURE THIS --
IT'S 3:00 IN THE MORNING.
YOU'RE SOUND ASLEEP.
ALL OF A SUDDEN YOU HEAR A VERY,
VERY STRANGE BEEPING SOUND.
ARE YOU TELLING ME YOU'RE NOT
GOING TO BE SCARED?
ELIZABETH: DEPENDS ON WHAT'S
MAKING THE NOISE.
TAMMY: WELL, IT'S
YOUR NEIGHBOR'S MICROWAVE,
BUT YOU DON'T KNOW THAT.
ELIZABETH: IT'S NICE
OF YOU TO WORRY, BUT THAT STUDIO
IS MY HOME AND THAT'S WHERE I'M
GOING.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
TAMMY: WE'RE NOT DONE YET.
EMILY: ELIZABETH?
ELIZABETH: HEY.
EMILY: HI.
UM --
CAN I TALK TO YOU FOR A MINUTE?
I HAVE SOMETHING I NEED TO TELL
YOU.
ELIZABETH: I ALREADY KNOW.
JASON'S GONE.

EDWARD: A.J., I HAVE MET ALL
KINDS OF PEOPLE IN THE BUSINESS
WORLD.
YOU KNOW, THE KIND WHO GIVE
YOU 50%, 60%, 110%.
RIGHT NOW, YOU ARE LANGUISHING
IN THE LOW 30s.
A.J.: THAT'S NOT TRUE.
EDWARD: YOU SEE, YOU DON'T
EVEN REALIZE IT, DO YOU?
YOU ARE SOUSY HANDLING
THE FALLOUT FROM CARLY'S LITTLE
PERFORMANCE THAT YOU HAVE CEASED
TO CONSIDER THE COMPANY AT ALL.
A.J.: ALL RIGHT, LOOK.
IF YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC
COMPLAINT, AIR IT.
ALL RIGHT?
IF YOU'RE JUST GOING TO RANT,
I DON'T HAVE TIME.
EDWARD: YOU WANT SPECIFICS?
A.J.: YEAH.
EDWARD: ALL RIGHT.
HOW ABOUT THE WAY THAT YOU HAVE
IGNORED OUR PROBLEMS
WITH THE UNION?
A.J.: WHAT ARE YOU TALKING
ABOUT?
I MET WITH A REP TAY.
EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL.
EDWARD: IS THERE A DEAL
ON THE TABLE?
A.J.: NOT YET.
EDWARD: WELL, THEN YOU'RE
KIDDING YOURSELF.
NOW, LOOK, EITHER YOU NAIL DOWN
A COMMITTMENT THIS WEEK, OR I --
I MAY BE FORCED TO GO
A DIFFERENT DIRECTION.
A.J.: MEANING WHAT?
EDWARD: WELL, JASON
NEGOTIATED THE COMPROMISE
THE LAST TIME.
AND IF THIS IS TOO MUCH
FOR YOU --
A.J.: OH --
EDWARD: I MAY HAVE A MIND
TO ASK HIM TO DO IT FOR ME.
MONICA: WELL, I WOULDN'T
COUNT ON THAT.
EDWARD: YOU THINK I CAN'T
CONVINCE JASON TO HELP US?
OH, WHILE THE REST OF YOU ARE
FAWNING ALL OVER HIM, I GET
RESULTS.
MONICA: NOT THIS TIME,
EDWARD.
BECAUSE JASON HAS LEFT TOWN
FOR GOOD.

VAL: I AM SO GLAD THAT
YOU WERE ABLE TO GIVE US SOME
EXTRA TIME THIS WEEK, TONY.
I KNOW YOU'VE BEEN BUSY OVER
AT GENERAL HOSPITAL.
TONY: WELL, THIS CLINIC IS
A VERY SPECIAL PLACE TO ME.
SO, ANYTIME I CAN HELP OUT,
I WILL.
VAL: OK, THEN.
THIS AFTERNOON'S APPOINTMENTS.
TONY: OH.
THAT DOESN'T LOOK THATAD.
VAL: HMM.
OH, CAN I HELP YOU?
CARLY: I THINK SO.
VAL: DO YOU NEED TO SEE
A DOCTOR?
OK, LET'S START WITH THE EASY
ONES FIRST.
NAME?
CARLY: CAROLINE MORGAN.
I'M HERE ACTUALLY BECAUSE
I THINK THAT I MIGHT BE
PREGNANT.

EMILY: JASON DIDN'T WANT ME
TO TELL ANYONE, BUT I THINK THAT
GRANDMOTHER AND MOM ALREADY
KNOW.
I MEAN, LAST NIGHT AT DINNER,
THEY WERE REALLY QUIET.
AND THEN GRANDMOTHER DIDN'T EVEN
COME DOWN THIS MORNING.
ELIZABETH: I'M SORRY, EM.
I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU COUNTED
ON HIM.
EMILY: YOU DID, TOO.
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW,
BEFORE THIS SUMMER, I DIDN'T
UNDERSTAND WHY YOU WERE SO CRAZY
ABOUT JASON.
EMILY: HMM.
ELIZABETH: I MEAN, I KNEW
THAT HE WAS NICE AND HE HELPED
OUT LUCKY MORE THAN ONCE,
BUT HE JUST SEEMED SO --
EMILY: DIFFERENT?
ELIZABETH: YEAH.
EMILY: YEAH.
HE WAS NEVER MEAN, BUT
HE JUST -- HE WASN'T INTERESTED
IN THE THINGS THAT MOST PEOPLE
REALLY CARED ABOUT.
AND IF HE LIKED YOU, YOU COULD
TELL HIM ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING
WITHOUT FEELING DUMB.
HE LISTENED AND HE HELPED
AND HE NEVER TREATED ANYONE LIKE
A KID.
ELIZABETH,
I'M REALLY SORRY THAT I ACTED
LIKE SUCH A JERK ABOUT
YOU AND HIM BEING FRIENDS.
ELIZABETH: NO, NO, IT'S OK.
EMILY: NO, IT'S NOT.
THE MORE I THOUGHT ABOUT IT,
THE MORE I REALIZED THAT
YOU GUYS WERE REALLY,
REALLY GOOD FOR EACH OTHER.
ELIZABETH, YOU HELPED JASON
A LOT.
ELIZABETH: OH, NO, NO.
HE HELPED ME.
I MISS HIM.
HE'S ONLY BEEN GONE A LITTLE
WHILE AND I ALREADY MISS HIM
SO MUCH.

EDWARD: MONICA, YOU'RE NOT
MAKING SENSE.
WHAT -- WHAT DO YOU MEAN,
THAT JASON'S GONE?
MONICA: HE DEPARTED
PORT CHARLES WITH NO PLANS
TO RETURN.
IS THAT CLEAR ENOUGH?
EDWARD: WELL, HOW DO
YOU KNOW?
MONICA: BECAUSE HE CAME
BY YESTERDAY TO SAY GOOD-BYE
TO LILA AND ME.
EDWARD: NO, YOU MUST HAVE
MISUNDERSTOOD HIS MEANING,
BECAUSE JASON WOULD NEVER LEAVE
THIS TOWN WITH LITTLE MICHAEL
HERE.
MONICA: DENY IT ALL YOU WANT,
EDWARD.
JASON IS GONE.
EDWARD: WELL, THEN WHY DIDN'T
YOU TELL ME IMMEDIATELY?
WE MIGHT'VE BEEN ABLE TO STOP
HIM.
MONICA: BECAUSE I PROMISED
I WOULD WAIT.
EDWARD: WAS HE IN TROUBLE?
WAS HE RUNNING FROM THE LAW?
MONICA: NO, HE WASN'T.
EDWARD: WELL, THEN WHY WOULD
HE LEAVE PORT CHARLES?
THIS IS HIS HOME.
AND EVERYBODY WHO LOVES HIM IS
HERE.
A.J.: I GUESS HE FINALLY
REALIZED HE WAS NEVER GOING
TO GET WHAT HE WANTED.
EDWARD: OH --
A.J.: INSTEAD OF DEALING
WITH IT, HE RAN.
EDWARD: OH!
MONICA: YOUR BROTHER FELT
THAT IT WOULD BE BETTER
FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE IF HE LEFT.
A.J.: FOR ONCE, I AGREE
WITH HIM.
MONICA: HE DID THAT
FOR MICHAEL.
SOMEHOW HE GOT IT INTO HIS HEAD
THAT IT -- IT WOULD BE GOOD
FOR MICHAEL IF HE WENT AWAY.
THAT'S HOW MUCH HE LOVES HIM.
NOW, YOU DON'T HAVE TO AGREE
WITH ME, BUT YOU AT LEAST HAVE
TO RESPECT THAT.
EDWARD: LOOK, THAT IS ENOUGH.
ARGUING AMONGST OURSELVES IS
GOING TO ACCOMPLISH NOTHING.
WE HAVE TO FIND OUT WHERE JASON
WENT AND WE JUST BRING HIM BACK.
MONICA: YOU DON'T GET THIS,
DO YOU, EDWARD?
HE DOESN'T WANT TO BE HERE.
EDWARD: WELL, HE WAS CONFUSED
AND HE ACED WITHOUT THINKING.
WE HAVE TO FIND HIM AND SHOW HIM
HOW MUCH HE'S NEEDED.
AND THEN HE'LL REALIZE HE'S MADE
A TERRIBLE MISTAKE.
MONICA: JASON IS GONE.
EDWARD: I REFUSE TO ACCEPT
THAT.
I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THIS HAS
ALL BEEN FOR NOTHING, DAMN IT.

[KNOCK ON DOOR]
ALEXIS: WHAT'D YOU DO,
FORGET YOUR KEY?
OH.
HI.
CHLOE: HEY, HI.
IS JAX AROUND?
ALEXIS: NO, YOU JUST MISSED
HI
COME ON IN.
CHLOE: OH, GOOD.
I -- I REALLY WANTED TO SEE
YOU ALONE.
ALEXIS: WELL, WHAT'S
THE MATTER?
CHLOE: WHAT MAKES YOU THINK
ANYTHING WAS THE MATTER?
ALEXIS: I HATE TO BREAK THIS
TO YOU, BUT THERE'S A CLOUD
HANGING OVER YOUR VERY SUNNY
DISPOSITION.
CHLOE: WELL, I DO HAVE A FEW
MINOR RESERVATIONS ABOUT WHAT'S
GOING ON AT THE MOMENT.
ALEXIS: CHLOE --
CHLOE: HMM?
ALEXIS: BLURT IT OUT.
CHLOE: I'VE BEEN THINKING
ABOUT THE LAST FEW MONTHS A LOT,
AND I KNOW IT'S BEEN A REALLY
STRESSFUL TIME FOR ALL
OF US, AND --
BLURT, RIGHT?
I JUST DON'T KNOW IF THE TIMING
IS RIGHT FOR ME AND JAX AFTER
ALL.

ALEXIS: ALL RIGHT, MAYBE I'M
MISTAKEN, BUT I THOUGHT
YOU AND JAX WERE FINE.
CHLOE: WE WERE.
WE ARE.
I THINK THAT'S THE PROBLEM.
ALEXIS: WHY DON'T YOU START
FROM THE TOP?
CHLOE: WHAT, FROM WHERE
I FIRST MET HIM?
ALEXIS: THAT WOULD BE A GOOD
PLACE.
CHLOE: UM -- WELL, I THOUGHT
HE WAS CHARMING -- AS
YOU KNOW -- AND WITTY AND FUNNY
AND SMART AND YOU KNOW ALL
OF THAT, TOO.
AND I HAD NO INTENTION
OF FALLING IN LOVE WITH HIM.
ALEXIS: THAT I DIDN'T KNOW.
CHLOE: I MET A LOT OF MEN
LIKE JAX IN EUROPE, AND I WENT
OUT WITH THEM AND I HAD A BALL
AND I WOULD NEVER, EVER TAKE
THEM SERIOUSLY.
AND I JUST THOUGHT THE SAME
RULES WOULD APPLY TO JAX.
ALEXIS: SNEAKY LITTLE DEVIL.
CHLOE: WHAT'S THAT?
ALEXIS: YOUR HEART.
CHLOE: YEAH.
THE MORE TIME I SPEND WITH HIM,
THE MORE I LIKE HIM.
I -- AT FIRST IT WAS ALL JUST
FUN AND ADVENTURE, AND THEN
SOMEWHERE IT GOT SERIOUS.
I MEAN, LIKE, "THINK ABOUT
MY FUTURE"IND OF SERIOUS.
ALEXIS: ARE YOU SCARED?
CHLOE: YEAH.
ALEXIS: DO YOU KNOW WHY?
CHLOE: I THINK I'M AFRAID I'M
GOING TO LOSE HIM.
OR LOSE ME.
I JUST -- I DON'T KNOW WHAT
I WOULD DO IF HE LEFT.
GOSH, LISTEN TO ME.
I SOUND LIKE A LUNATIC.
I MEAN, I'VE LOST MY MIND OVER
THIS.
ALEXIS: SUPPOSED TO FEEL THAT
WAY.
CHLOE: OH.
ALEXIS: IT'S ALL SUPPOSED
TO BE A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE.
CHLOE: WELL, COULD YOU JUST
EP REMINDING ME OF THAT?
ALEXIS: I'D BE HAPPY TO.
CHLOE: OK.
ALEXIS: FIRST TIME?
CHLOE: YES.
IT'S PRETTY OBVIOUS, HUH?
ALEXIS: VERY.
LOVE LOOKS VERY GOOD ON YOU.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.

MONICA: I DON'T KNOW WHY
YOU ARE SO SHOCKED AT JASON'S
LEAVING, EDWARD.
YOU HAVEN'T SAID A KIND WORD
ABOUT HIM IN YEARS.
EDWA: SO WHAT'S YOUR POINT?
MONICA: YOU ARE ONLY
INTERESTED IN WHAT YOU CAN'T
HAVE OR WHAT YOU CAN'T CONTROL.
WELL, AT THE MOMENT,
A.J. HAPPENS TO BE HERE.
A.J.: DON'T DO THAT.
NO, MOM, MOM --
MONICA: WHY DON'T YOU TAKE
SOME PLEASURE --
A.J.: HEY, DON'T DO THAT,
PLEASE.
I CAN HANDLE THIS.
EDWARD: HANDLE WHAT?
CAN'T A MAN EXPRESS GENUINE
FEELINGSF LOSS WITHOUT
HIS WHOLE FAMILY HARANGUING HIM?
A.J.: WOULD YOU EXCUSE US?
I'D LIKE TO HAVE A WORD ALONE
WITH GRANDFATHER.
MONICA: GOOD LUCK.
EDWARD: WELL, YOUR MOTHER IS
OBVIOUSLY IN A STATE,
AND I CAN'T SAY THAT I BLAME
HER.
A.J.: TELL ME WHY YOU'RE
UPSET.
EDWARD: I SHOULDN'T THINK I'D
HAVE TO.
ISN'T IT OBVIOUS?
A.J.: NO, IT ISN'T.
EDWARD: LOOK, I HAVE BEEN
ANGRY AT JASON FOR A LONG TIME.
BUT JUST THE SAME, I WOULD STILL
PREFER TO HAVE HIM HERE.
A.J.: DID YOU ACTUALLY THINK
THAT YOU COULD LURE HIM BACK
TO THE FAMILY?
EDWARD: AT TIMES,
YES, MM-HMM.
YEAH.
A.J.: AND THEN WHAT?
HUH?
PUT HIM IN A CUTE LITTLE SUIT
AND SEND HIM OFF TO WORK
AT E.L.Q.?
TRAIN HIM TO, WHAT, TAKE OVER
THE -- THE ACCOUNTING
DEPARTMENT?
OR, HEY, MAYBE EVEN MY JOB?
EDWARD: WELL -- I --
I HADN'T TAKEN IT THAT FAR.
A.J.: JASON WAS NEVER COMING
BACK.
IF ANYTHING, HE WAS MOVING
FARTHER AWAY.
JUST LIKE NED.
POOF.
ALL YOUR GOLDEN BOYS HAVE
SUDDENLY DISAPPEARED IN FRONT
OF YOUR EYES.
DO YOU REALIZE THAT NED WOULD
RATHER RUN SOME RINKY-DINK
LITTLE RECORD COMPANY THAN
A CONGLOMERATE LIKE E.L.Q.?
NED SIDES WITH --
WITH ANYONE WHO'S AGAINST YOU.
HE MOCKS EVERYTHING THAT --
THAT YOU BELIEVE IN.
YOU GOT NO ONE LEFT.
EXCEPT
THERE IS STILL ONE PERSON
WHO STILL CARES ABOUT WHAT
YOU THINK.
EDWARD: YOU?
A.J.: ME.
YOU NEED ME.
AND IT'S TIME YOU REALIZE IT.

ELIZABETH: AFTER THAT NIGHT
AT JAKE'S WHEN JASON SAVED ME
FROM MYSELF, EVERY TIME I HAD
A BAD DAY, I STARTED LOOKING
FOR HIM.
AND WE'D GO FOR A RIDE
ON HIS BIKE AND I'D TELL HIM
WHAT WAS BOTHERING ME.
AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT JUST
SEEMED LIKE THE WHOLE WORLD GOT
BETTER.
EMILY: I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT
YOU MEAN.
HE NEVER TOLD YOU WHAT TO DO
OR HOW TO FEEL.
HE WOULD JUST
LISTEN AND SOMEHOW YOU WOULD
FIGURE IT OUT FOR YOURSELF,
YOU KNOW?
I'LL NEVER FORGET WHEN HE FIRST
MOVED OUT OF THE HOUSE
AND MY PARENTS USED TO ARGUE
WITH HIM TRYING TO GET HIM
TO COME AND MOVE BACK IN,
BUT HE WOULDN'T EVEN
CONSIDER IT.
HE KNEW THAT IT WASN'T WHAT
HE WANTED AND THAT WAS THAT.
YOU KNOW, HE WOULD COACH ME
ON HOW NOT TO BE A QUARTERMAINE.
I HOPE I NEVER FORGET WHAT
HE SAID.
ELIZABETH: YOU WON'T.
WHEN SOMEONE LEAVES YOUR LIFE,
YOU START TO REMEMBER ALL KINDS
OF THINGS THEY SAID TO YOU.
EMILY: YEAH.
YEAH, I WAS THINKING ABOUT THAT
ON THE WAY OVER HERE
IN THE CAR --
ABOUT WHEN HE ASKED ME TO BE
MICHAEL'S GODMOTHER.
DIDN'T MATTER THAT I WAS YOUNG.
IT JUST MATTERED THAT I LOVED
MICHAEL.
IT MEANT A LOT TO ME.
I'LL NEVER FORGET IT.
ELIZETH: YOU NEVER KNOW.
HE COULD CHANGE HIS MIND.
I MEAN, JASON HAS AN AWFUL LOT
OF PEOPLE HERE WHO CARE ABOUT
HIM.
EMILY: HE THINKS HE'S DOING
THE RIGHT THING.
HE'S NOT GOING TO CHANGE
HIS MIND ABOUT THAT.
YOU KNOW, IT HASN'T EVEN SUNK
IN YET.
WHEN IT DOES, I'M GOING TO DO
SOME MAJOR FALLING APART.
ELIZABETH: WELL,
WHEN YOU NEED A SHOULDER,
YOU KNOW WHERE TO FIND ME.
I KNOW THIS SOUNDS
REALLY CRAZY, BUT
I CAN'T HELP BUT THINKING THAT
CARLY HAD SOMETHING TO DO
WITH THIS.
EMILY: YOU, TOO?

CARLY: HOW MUCH LONGER DO
YOU THINK IT'S GOING TO TAKE?
VAL: WELL, THE TEST RESULTS
SHOULD BE BACK ANY MINUTE.
CARLY: CAN YOU CHECK?
VAL: I'LL FIND THE DOCTOR.
CARLY: THANK YOU.
OH.
VAL: HER NAME IS CAROLINE.
SHE SEEMS VERY ANXIOUS
FOR THE RESULTS OF HER PREGNANCY
TEST.
TONY: AND IS SHE MARRIED?
VAL: HER PAPERWORK DIDN'T SAY
SO, BUT SHE IS WEARING A WEDDING
RING.
TONY: WHY DID YOU WANT ME
FOR THIS CASE?
VAL: YOUR WARM BEDSIDE
MANNER.
YOUR GIFT OF BEING SUPPORTIVE --
TONY: AND THE FACT THAT
YOU'RE BEING PULLED
IN 15 DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS?
VAL: WELL, THAT MIGHT HAVE
SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT.
SHE'S OVER THERE.
TONY: SO, WE HAVE YOUR TEST
RESULTS BACK, AND YOU ARE
DEFINITELY GOING TO HAVE A BABY,
CAROLINE.

TONY: ANOTHER BABY, CARLY.
I MEAN, HAVEN'T YOU
DONE ENOUGH DAMAGE
WITH THE FIRST ONE?
CARLY: I'M NOT REALLY
INTERESTED IN YOUR OPINION,
TONY.
TONY: WHY ARE YOU TRYING
TO CONCEAL THIS PREGNANCY?
CARLY: DID I SAY THAT I WAS?
TONY: WHY ELSE WOULD YOU COME
HERE?
CARLY: MAYBE I DON'T LIKE BIG
HOSPITALS.
TONY: UNDER AN ASSUMED NAME.
CARLY: YOU KNOW WHAT, TONY?
LOOK, WHY DON'T YOU JUST GIVE ME
MY CHART AND I'LL TAKE
MY BUSINESS ELSEWHERE.
TONY: IT JUST NEVER STOPS
WITH YOU, DOES IT?
I -- I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE WHAT
YOU'RE TRYING TO COVER UP THIS
TIME.
CARLY: DO YOU THINK WE COULD
JUST -- JUST TRY NOT TO TEAR
EACH OTHER APART JUST THIS ONE
TIME?
TONY: I DOUBT IT.
CARLY: OK.
LOOK, WE BOTH KNOW THAT I HAVE
A TENDENCY TO MESS THINGS UP.
AND THAT'S --
THAT'S WHY I'M HERE.
I'M TRYING TO FIX THAT.
NY: GO ON.
IT'S -- I'M INTRIGUED.
CARLY: WELL, YOU KNOW,
THE QUARTERMAINES WOULD LOVE
NOTHING MORE THAN
ANOTHER HEIR TO THEIR FAMILY
FORTUNE.
AND IF I -- I TOLD THEM THAT
I EVEN SUSPECTED THAT I THOUGHT
I WAS PREGNANT, THEY WOULD HAVE
A NEW NURSERY BUILT BEFORE
I EVEN GOT THE WORDS OUT
OF MY MOUTH.
TONY: SO YOU JUST CAME HERE
TO SPARE THEIR FEELINGS.
THAT'S HIGHLY UNLIKELY.
CARLY: I JUST --
I DIDN'T -- YOU KNOW, I WANTED
TO BE SURE.
I DIDN'T WANT TO SAY ANYTHING.
YOU KNOW?
IS THAT SO TERRIBLE?
TONY: NO.
NOW, YOU KNOW.
SO WHAT'S NEXT?
CARLY: I NEED SOME TIME.
YOU KNOW?
WE BOTH KNOW ANYTHING --
ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN
IN THE FIRST THREE MONTHS.
TONY: YOU GOT A POINT.
CARLY: SO WILL YOU KEEP
MY SECRET?

EMILY: CARLY IS THE MOST
MISERABLE HUMAN BEING I HAVE
EVER MET IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.
I MEAN, EVEN THOUGH SHE'S STILL
MARRIED TO A.J., SHE'S STILL
TRYING TO THROW HERSELF
AT JASON.
ELIZABETH: YEAH, BUT WOULD
JASON LET HER CHASE HIM AWAY?
I MEAN, I -- I CAN'T SEE IT.
EMILY: LATELY, SHE'S BEEN
TRYING TO USE MICHAEL TO GET
JASON BACK IN HER LIFE.
AND, WELL, IF JASON COULDN'T
FIND A WAY TO MAKE HER STOP,
MAYBE HE FIGURED THE ONLY WAY
WAS TO JUST LEAVE.
ELIZABETH: CARLY DEFINITELY
HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THIS.
BUT SHE'S NOT THE ONLY REASON.
AFTER THAT BOMB WAS PLACED
IN MY STUDIO, JASON'S BEEN
WORRIED ABOUT ME.
HE SAID HE WAS MAKING ME
A TARGET AND HE WAS GOING
TO MAKE SURE THAT I WASN'T GOING
TO GET HURT.
EMILY: ELIZABETH, YOU CAN'T
TAKE THIS ON YOURSELF.
LOOK, IT MAY BE TRUE, BUT JASON
LEAVING IS NOT YOUR FAULT.
ELIZABETH: I KNOW.
I KNOW.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
JASON'S GONE.
I GUESS ALL WE CAN DO NOW IS
LIVE WITH IT.

EDWARD: I WON'T DENY THAT
I'VE HAD MY DOUBTS ABOUT YOU,
WITH GOOD REASON.
BUT I'VE ALSO BEEN IMPRESSED
WITH THE WAY THAT YOU'VE MADE
SOME IMPROVEMENTS IN YOUR LIFE.
A.J.: YOU'VE CERTAINLY KEPT
THAT A SECRET.
EDWARD: OH, I PAY A LOT MORE
ATTENTION THAN YOU THINK,
BUT YOU SEE, RUNNING
E.L.Q. TAKES SOMETHING SPECIAL.
AND THAT'S WHERE YOU'VE FALLEN
SHORT.
A.J.: THE COMPANY IS DOING
WELL.
DON'T I GET ANY CREDIT FOR THAT?
EDWARD: YOU'VE BENEFITTED
FROM NED'S GROUNDWORK.
ALL THOSE DEALS THAT HE SET
IN MOTION -- THEY'RE NO LONGER
ON THE TABLE, AND I DON'T SEE
ANYTHING TO TAKE THEIR PLACE.
A.J.: WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW
WHY?
EDWARD: SURE.
A.J.: IT'S IMPOSSIBLE
TO OPERATE WHILE WAITING
FOR THE AXE TO FALL.
IT'S TRUE.
EVERY DAY I WALK INTO THAT
OFFICE, I WONDER IF IT'S GOING
TO BE MY LAST.
EVERY TIME THE PHONE RINGS,
I WONDER IF IT'S YOU TELLING ME
TO PACK MY THINGS, THAT NED'S
IN AND I'M OUT.
SO, YES, I HAVE BEEN A LITTLE
TENTATIVE, GRANDFATHER.
BUT THAT'S BECAUSE I HAVEN'T HAD
YOUR FULL CONFIDENCE.
EDWARD: I TOLD YOU LAST
NIGHT -- YOU HAVE TO EARN IT.
A.J.: FINE.
FINE. GIVE ME A CHANCE.
ALL RIGHT?
JUST GIVE ME A CHANCE TO SHOW
YOU THAT I AM THE ONE TO LEAD
E.L.Q. INTO THE FUTURE.
EDWARD: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
HOW MUCH I LOVE THAT COMPANY?
I HAVE POURED MY HEART AND SOUL
INTO E.L.Q., AND IL BE DAMNED
IF I'LL GIVE IT TO ANYONE WHO
DOESN'T SHARE MY PASSION FOR IT.
A.J.: LOOK, I'M -- RUNNING
E.L.Q. MEANS EVERYTHING TO ME,
ALL RIGHT?
COME ON. GIVE ME MY CHANCE.
LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT I CAN DO.
EDWARD: ALL RIGHT.
YOU'VE GOT IT.
FULL REIGN.
I'LL -- I'LL SUPPORT
YOUR DECISIONS AND GIVE
YOU WHATEVER HELP I CAN.
A.J.: THANK YOU.
EDWARD: NO, NO --
A.J.: THANK YOU.
EDWARD: NO, NO.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO THANK ME.
A.J.: NO.
EDWARD: NO.
I'M THE ONE THAT --
THAT NEEDS YOU.
A.J.: WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT?
I'M GOING TO MAKE THIS WORK
FOR THE BOTH OF US.
YOU'LL SEE.
YOU'LL SEE.

ALEXIS: FROM WHAT YOU'VE TOLD
ME ABOUT YOUR CHILDHOOD,
WE COULDN'T HAVE COME FROM MORE
DIFFERENT UPBRINGINGS.
BUT WE DO HAVE SOMETHING
IN COMMON.
CHLOE: WE'RE BOTH MARRIED
TO THE WRONG MAN?
ALEXIS: FEAR OF INTIMACY.
I HAVE SOME BOOKS THAT I CAN
LEND YOU, BUT YOU HAVE TO GIVE
THEM BACK TO ME BECAUSE I MAY
NEED THEM SOMETIME.
CHLOE: NO, I DON'T BELIEVE
YOU.
I DON'T THINK YOU FEAR ANYTHING.
ALEXIS: REALLY?
CHLOE: HMM.
ALEXIS: IT'S AN ACT.
I'M AFRAID ALL OF THE TIME.
BUT NED SHOWED ME THAT IF I PLAY
IT SAFE, I'M NOT GOING TO PLAY
AT ALL.
AND I'M A PLAYER, SO I CHOSE
TO PLAY.
CHLOE: YOU'RE VERY LUCKY.
ALEXIS: SO ARE YOU.
CHLOE: JAX IS EVERYTHING
I EVER WANTED.
ALEXIS: WELL, THEN,
TRUST YOURSELF.
TRUST HIM, TAKE A DEEP BREATH,
BE BRAVE.
AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EVERY
MOMENT.
CHLOE: OK.
I WILL.
THANK YOU.
ALEXIS: YOU'RE WELCOME.

ELIZABETH: HEY.
NIKOLAS: HEY.
ELIZABETH: HOW LONG HAVE
YOU BEEN HERE?
NIKOLAS: LONG ENOUGH TO HEAR
WHAT YOU JUST SAID.
JASON LEFT TOWN?
FOR GOOD?
EMILY: IT SEEMS THAT WAY.
NIKOLAS: I'M SORRY.
WELL, I KNOW THAT THIS MUST BE
HARD ON BOTH OF YOU.
IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO
TO HELP?
EMILY: UM --
I'M -- I'M GOING TO GO.
I ACTUALLY HAVE A CHEMISTRY TEST
THAT I HAVE TO STUDY FOR.
I HAVEN'T READ THE CHAPTER
YET, SO --
ELIZABETH: OK.
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY, AND I'LL
CALL YOU AFTER MY SHIFT'S OVER.
EMILY: YEAH.
SEE YOU LATER.
NIKOLAS and ELIZABETH: SEE
YOU.
EMILY: HEY.
JUAN: HEY.
EMILY: YOU WERE LOOKING
FOR ME, I HOPE.
JUAN: SURE WAS.
EMILY: ELIZABETH AND I WERE
JUST INSIDE TALKING ABOUT JASON.
YOU KNOW, SHE GOT REALLY CLOSE
WITH HIM.
JUAN: WELL, I FEEL BAD
FOR BOTH OF YOU.
EMILY: YOU MEAN THAT?
JUAN: WHY WOULDN'T I?
EMILY: WELL, YOU AND JASON
WEREN'T EXACTLY BUDDIES
OR ANYTHING.
JUAN: YEAH, BUT HE WAS GOOD
TO YOU AND I KNOW IT'S HD
TO BE WITHOUT SOMEBODY THAT
YOU CARE ABOUT.
EMILY: YEAH.
YEAH, THERE WILL NEVER BE ANYONE
LIKE JASON.
NEVER.
JUAN: HEY.
I KNOW YOU'RE GOING TO MISS HIM.
BUT WHATEVER SPACE JASON LEFT
IN YOUR LIFE,
I PROMISE I'LL FILL IT UP.
EMILY: YOU ARE TOTALLY
UNREAL.
JUAN: YOU MEAN THAT
AS A COMPLIMENT, RIGHT?
EMILY: YEAH.
EMILY: YOU WANT TO WALK ME
HOME?

MONICA: OH.
OF COURSE, A.J. WAS THRILLED
THAT JASON WAS GONE.
EDWARD, HOWEVER, ACTED AS THOUGH
HE WAS DEVASTATED.
ALAN: HE'S A HYPOCRITE.
HE'S NEVER DONE ANYTHING
BUT TEAR JASON DOWN FOR YEARS.
MONICA: WELL, I THINK HE WAS
UPSET THAT JASON DIDN'T SAY
GOOD-BYE TO HIM.
HE HAD A ROUGH TIME ACCEPTING
THAT.
ALAN: WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT
MAKE?
JASON'S GONE AND THAT'S IT.
MONICA: HEY, I --
I KNOW HE DIDN'T SAY GOOD-BYE
TO YOU, EITHER.
PLEASE, PLEASE DON'T TAKE THAT
AS A STATEMENT OF HOW HE FELT
ABOUT YOU.
ALAN: MONICA, PLEASE DON'T
MAKE EXCUSES FOR JASON.
WE WERE NOT ON THE BEST OF TERMS
WHEN HE LEFT.
DO WE --
DO WE STILL HAVE THAT FILM
OF HIS 3rd BIRTHDAY PARTY?
MONICA: YEAH, SOMEWHERE.
ALAN: I'D LIKE TO SEE IT.
WE HAD SUCH HOPE FOR HIS FUTURE,
DIDN'T WE?
MONICA: I'LL HAVE REGINALD
LOOK FOR IT TONIGHT.
ALAN: YOU REMEMBER PEOPLE
USED TO ASK HIM "WHAT DO
YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW
UP?" AND HE WOULD SAY, "I WANT
TO BE A DOCTOR JUST LIKE
MY MOMMY AND DADDY."
AND HE WOULD HAVE MADE IT
EXCEPT SOMETIMES THINGS HAPPEN
ON THE WAY TO THE FUTURE,
DON'T THEY?
FORTUNATELY, YOU AND EM WERE
ABLE TO STAY IN CLOSE CONTACT
WITH HIM.
I NEVER COULD.
JASON DIDN'T HAVE TO SAY
GOOD-BYE TO ME.
WE SAID GOOD-BYE A LONG TIME
AGO.

JAX: YEAH, YEAH.
HE TOOK THE DEAL AND I CALLED
HIS BLUFF AND HE BOUGHT IT.
YEAH.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
JAX: OH, LISTEN, I GOT
TO RUN, CARL.
LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED ANY MORE
FIGURES, OK?
RIGHT. LATER.
HEY.
CHLOE: HI.
JAX: I WAS HOPING IT WOULD
BE YOU.
AND I WAS AFRAID THAT I'D HAVE
TO GO ALL DAY WITHOUT SEEING
YOU.
CHLOE: YEAH?
JAX: MM-HMM.
CHLOE: I WAS AFRAID
OF THE SAME THING.
JAX: YEAH?
HEY, DIDN'T YOU HAVE A MEETING
THIS AFTERNOON WITH SOME
FABRIC DESIGNER FROM BRUSSELS
OR SOMETHING?
CHLOE: YES, I DID,
BUT I RESCHEDULED IT.
JAX: REALLY? HOW COME?
CHLOE: BECAUSE BEING
WITH YOU IS THE MOST IMPORTANT
THING ON MY AGENDA.
JAX: YEAH, YOU BET.

TONY: YOU KNOW, WHAT'S REALLY
SAD HERE IS THAT YOU HAVE LIED
SO MANY TIMES THAT I NO LONGER
HAVE FAITH YOU'RE TELLING
THE TRUTH.
CARLY: WELL, TONY, YOU KNOW,
YOU'VE LIED A LOT, TOO,
AND, YOU KNOW, I'VE SEEN
YOU CHANGE AND I'VE CHANGED,
TOO.
TONY: HOW LONG DO YOU EXPECT
TO HIDE THIS PREGNANCY?
CARLY: THREE MONTHS, TOPS.
TONY: OH.
THAT'S A LONG TIME.
I MEAN, IF -- IF NO ONE ELSE
NOTICES, YOUR HUSBAND'S GOING
TO SEE THAT YOUR BODY'S
CHANGING.
CARLY: SO, MAYBE I'LL TELL
HIM, YOU KNOW?
BUT MAYBE I'LL JUST FIND
AN EXCUSE TO GO ON A VACATION.
TONY: I DON'T WANT TO HEAR
THIS, AND I CERTAINLY DON'T WANT
TO BE A PART OF IT, YOU KNOW?
JUST LISTENING TO YOU --
IT JUST BRINGS BACK EVERY SINGLE
LIE THAT YOU EVER TOLD WHEN
YOU WERE PREGNANT WITH MICHAEL,
HOW YOU TRIED TO MANIPULATE ME
INTO MARRYING YOU,
HOW YOU JUST SORT OF FAILED
TO TELL ME THAT YOU SLEPT
WITH A.J. AND HOW YOU TOOK
THE CHILD THAT I THOUGHT WAS
MINE AND YOU GAVE IT TO JASON
LIKE SOME KIND OF HOUSEPLANT
THAT YOU DIDN'T FEEL LIKE
WATERING ANYMORE.
I HAVE A LOT OF SCARS FROM YOU,
YOU KNOW?
AND I'M NOT GOING TO DO
TO SOMEONE ELSE WHAT YOU DID
TO ME.
THANK YOU.
CARLY: WAIT, TONY.
LOOK, ALL RIGHT?
I'LL LEVEL WITH YOU, OK?
THIS BABY IS NOT EXACTLY
SOMETHING THAT A.J. AND
I PLANNED.
WELL, I JUST NEED TO THINK
ABOUT IT.
I NEED TO FIGURE OUT HOW IT'S
GOING TO FIT INTO OUR LIVES
EXACTLY, YOU KNOW?
TONY: HAVE -- HAVE YOU EVER
HAD ANY THOUGHTS IN YOUR MIND
ABOUT BIRTH CONTROL,
ANYTHING LIKE THAT?
CARLY: I'M NOT EXACTLY WHAT
YOU'D CALL A GOOD PLANNER.
YOU KNOW THAT.
TONY: THE BABY'S GOING
TO IMPACT A.J. AS MUCH AS IT
WILL YOU.
CARLY: I KNOW.
TONY: AND YOU HAVE
AN OBLIGATION TO TELL HIM.
CARLY: I WILL TELL HIM,
BUT, YOU KNOW, I DON'T HAVE
TO TELL HIM RIGHT NOW.
TONY: WHY NOT?
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
CARLY: BECAUSE HE'S UNDER
A LOT OF PRESSURE AT WORK AND,
YOU KNOW, I DON'T WANT TO MAKE
IT WORSE FOR HIM RIGHT NOW.
TONY: WAIT, WAIT,
WAIT, WAIT, WAIT.
YOU -- YOU WANT ME TO BELIEVE
THAT YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT
SOMEBODY ELSE INSTEAD
OF YOURSELF?
CARLY: YOU KNOW WHAT?
TONY: WHOA!
CARLY: YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK?
YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK THIS IS
ABOUT?
I THINK YOU'RE JEALOUS.
YOU'RE JUST JEALOUS
BECAUSE A.J. AND I HAVE
SOMETHING REAL.
WE HAVE A LIFE, SOMETHING THAT
YOU HAVEN'T MANAGED TO FIND YET.
ALL I'M ASKING YOU TO DO
IS NOT TELL ANYBODY I WAS HERE.
CAN YOU DO THAT?
TONY: DOES BOBBIE KNOW?
CARLY: NO.
A.J. WILL BE THE FIRST,
WHEN I'M READY.
TONY: YOU NEED GOOD PRENATAL
CARE.
CARLY: WELL, I'LL GET IT,
YOU KNOW?
I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE ANY
CHANCES.
TONY: IT'S MY DUTY
AS A PHYSICIAN TO PROTECT
THE PRIVACY OF MY PATIENTS.
SO IF YOU WANT TO KEEP THIS
A SECRET, I'LL GO ALONG
WITH THAT.
CARLY: GLAD TO HEAR IT.
TONY: BUT I'LL BE WATCHING
YOU, CAROLINE.

NIKOLAS: I WON'T PRETEND
I LIKED JASON.
OK?
BUT AFTER LUCKY, YOU SHOULDN'T
HAVE HAD TO LOSE ANYONE AGAIN.
ELIZABETH: THANK YOU.
NIKOLAS: AND I WON'T SAY THAT
I HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS
BECAUSE I DON'T.
I JUST DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU SAD
ANYMORE.
AND I -- I WOULD DO ANYTHING
I CAN TO HELP YOU GET THROUGH
THIS.
ELIZABETH: I'M OPEN
FOR SUGGESTIONS.
NIKOLAS: OK.
REMEMBER WHEN WE DISCUSSED ABOUT
GOING SNOWBOARDING?
MAYBE THIS IS THE TIME TO DO IT.
ELIZABETH: OH, I DON'T KNOW,
NIKOLAS.
I DON'T THINK I'D BE A WHOLE LOT
OF FUN RIGHT NOW.
NIKOLAS: OH, COME ON.
IMAGINE ME -- A BIG-DEAL
CASSADINE PRINCE FALLING FACE
FIRST INTO A SNOWDRIFT,
LEGS WAVING IN THE AIR,
TOES TURNING INTO ICICLES.
COME ON.
TELL ME THAT WON'T PUT A SMILE
ON YOUR FACE.
ELIZABETH: OK.
OK, I'LL GO.
JUST CALL ME AND WE'LL SET
THE DATE.
NIKOLAS: GREAT.
YOU WANT TO GO FOR A RIDE?
WE CAN CRANK UP THE HEAT,
PUT THE TOP DOWN?
ELIZABETH: I WOULD LOVE TO,
BUT I CAN'T.
I GOT TO GET BACK TO WORK.
NIKOLAS: OK.
WELL, I WILL -- I'LL CALL
YOU LATER ABOUT SNOWBOARDING.
ELIZABETH: OK.
NIKOLAS: OK.
SEE YOU.
ELIZABETH: SEE YOU.
TAMMY: HEY.
SWEETIE, WE'RE KIND OF SLOW
IF YOU WANT TO GO AHEAD AND TAKE
OFF WITH NIKOLAS.
ELIZABETH: I THINK IT'D JUST
BE BETTER IF I STAY HERE.
TAMMY: OK.

CHLOE: YOU KNOW WHAT I FEEL
LIKE?
CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS.
JAX: WOW.
I HAD NO IDEA OLD CHRIS WAS SUCH
A GOOD KISSER.
CHLOE: OH, HE'S FANTASTIC.
I MEAN, I JUST -- I FEEL I'M
DISCOVERING A NEW WORLD.
JAX: IS THAT WHAT I AM
TO YOU?
YOUR ROUTE TO THE EAST?
CHLOE: YOU'RE MY ROUTE
TO EVERYWHERE.
OK.
I HAVEN'T LIKED ANYONE THIS
MUCH, SO YOU'LL HAVE TO FORGIVE
ME IF I'M A LITTLE OVERWHELMED
AND A LITTLE BIT SILLY.
JAX: WELL, THERE'S A LOT
OF THAT GOING AROUND.
CHLOE: YEAH.
JAX: BUT JUST SO YOU KNOW,
I'M NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

LILA: I SEE YOU'VE HEARD
ABOUT JASON.
EDWARD: MM-HMM.
I'VE ALWAYS ASSUMED THAT
JASON'S LOVE FOR MICHAEL
WOULD KEEP HIM TIED TO US.
HMM.
OBVIOUSLY, I COULDN'T HAVE BEEN
MORE MISTAKEN.
LILA: HE BELIEVED LEAVING WAS
THE BEST FOR MICHAEL.
EDWARD: WELL, WHY DIDN'T
YOU TELL HIM HE WAS WRONG?
I'M SOY.
I'M -- EXCUSE ME.
OH.
I KNOW YOU LOVE THAT BOY.
LILA: YOU LOVE HIM,
TOO, EDWARD.
EDWARD: YOU KNOW SOMETHING?
JASON REMINDS ME OF YOU.
HE'S GENTLE AND -- AND HE'S
KIND.
BUT HE IS COMPLETELY WILLFUL
AND HE DOES EXACTLY WHAT
HE WANTS TO DO AND HE DOESN'T
GIVE A DAMN WHAT ANYONE THINKS.
BEFORE THE ACCIDENT, HE --
HE UNDERSTOOD HIS PLACE
IN THE FAMILY.
BUT AFTERWARDS --
WELL, YOU KNOW, THE DOCTORS FELT
HE WOULD NEED TO BE
INSTITUTIONALIZED.
HUH.
BUT HE JUST LAUGHED IN ALL
OF OUR FACES AND WENT OUT
AND BUILT A LIFE FOR HIMSELF.
AND WHY DIDN'T I TELL HIM THAT
I WAS PROUD?
I SHOULD HAVE BEEN HONEST
INSTEAD OF TRYING TO MANIPULATE
HIM.
LILA: JASON UNDERSTANDS
YOU VERY WELL, EDWARD.
EDWARD: MM-HMM.
AND HE DESPISES ME.
LILA: NO.
IT'S POSSIBLE TO LOVE SOMEONE
WHO FRUSTRATES YOU.
I'VE CERTAINLY MANAGED.
EDWARD: I KNOW THAT.
AND I THANK GOD FOR IT EVERY
NIGHT.
HMM.
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, LILA DEAR.
LILA: I LOVE YOU, TOO.
EDWARD: EVEN THOUGH I BROUGHT
THIS FAMILY BUSINESS
TO THE BRINK OF RUIN?
YOU KNOW, A.J. RIGHTLY SAID THAT
HE'S THE ONLY THING I HAVE LEFT.
SO I PROMISED TO GIVE HIM A REAL
OPPORTUNITY TO PROVE HIMSELF
AS A C.E.O.
NOT THAT I THINK HE'LL SUCCEED.
BUT -- BUT I OWE HIM THAT,
AT LEAST.

MONICA: A.J. IS JUST
DETERMINED TO PROVE HIMSELF
TO EDWARD.
HE WANTS THE LOVE AND RESPECT
THAT JASON GOT, AND HE'S GOING
TO DO ANYTHING TO GET IT.
ALAN: AND ALL I HAVE TO DO IS
MARRY GERTRUDE, WHICH IS A VERY
SMALL PRICE TO PAY FOR OUR SON'S
SURVIVAL.
MONICA: I'M SO GLAD THAT
YOU FEEL THAT WAY
BECAUSE A.J. HAS ENOUGH
ON HIS HANDS WITH CARLY.
HE DOESN'T NEED EDWARD PITTING
NED AGAINST HIM.
ALAN: YOU'RE A WONDERFUL
MOTHER, MONICA.
AND YOU'RE AN INCREDIBLE WIFE.
MONICA: WHAT A NICE THING
TO SAY.
ALAN: I ONLY WISH THAT
A.J. COULD KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE
TO BE MARRIED TO SOMEONE LIKE
YOU -- LOYAL, INTELLIGENT.
MONICA: MADLY IN LOVE
WITH HER HUSBAND.
ALAN: OH!
ESPECIALLY THAT.

JASON: LOOK, CARLY,
YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT
I CAN'T -- I CAN'T LOVE
YOU THE WAY YOU WANT ME TO.
CARLY: YOU'RE SAYING THAT
BECAUSE I HURT YOU.
JASON: NO --
CARLY: IT'S NOT --
JASON: NO, NO.
SEEING YOU AND SONNY TOGETHER
PROVED WHAT I ALREADY KNEW.
IF I LET YOU --
CARLY: NO.
PLEASE.
JASON: YOU WOULDN'T MEAN TO,
BUT YOU'D DO IT.
I MEAN, THE NEXT TIME YOU'D GET
SCARED OR YOU'D GET ANGRY OR --
HOW AM I -- HOW CAN I KEEP
CATCHING YOU IF THERE'S NOTHING
LEFT OF ME?
YOU AND I ARE FRIENDS.
A.J.: I THOUGHT I HEARD
YOU COME IN.
CARLY: A.J., IF IT'S ALL
THE SAME TO YOU, I'D REALLY LIKE
TO BE ALONE RIGHT NOW.
A.J.: NOT UNTIL YOU HEAR
ME OUT.
CARLY: UM -- I REALLY THINK
WE'LL FIGHT MUCH BETTER LATER.
A.J.: WELL, I ASSUME THAT
JASON TOLD YOU HE WAS LEAVING?
CARLY: SO?
A.J.: SO --
LOOK, I WANT TO DISCUSS WHAT
THAT MEANS TO US.
CARLY: FINE.
DISCUSS.
A.J.: WELL, GRANDFATHER HAS
PROMISED ME A FRESH START
AT E.L.Q.
HE'S GIVEN ME EVERY OPPORTUNITY
TO PROVE MYSELF, AND I WANT
TO MAKE YOU THAT SAME OFFER.
CARLY: WHAT, ARE YOU OUT
OF YOUR MIND?
A.J.: WELL, YOU CAN ACCEPT
MY OFFER OR CHOOSE THE
ALTERNATIVE.
CARLY: WHICH IS WHAT?
A.J.: LEAVE!
BUT MICHAEL STAYS HERE.
CARLY: ALL RIGHT.
YOU WIN.
ARE YOU HAPPY?
A.J.: WE CAN BOTH WIN HERE,
BABY.
IT'S UP TO YOU.

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

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

TAMMY: HANNAH IS A FAKE.
WE'VE ALL BEEN HAD.

HANNAH: I CAN'T STAND
BY AND WATCH MY OWN FATHER BRING
DOWN THE MAN I LOVE.

NED: JUST TELL ME WHY
I SHOULDN'T TRY TO GET MY OLD
JOB BACK.

SONNY: WHY WOULDN'T I BE
SPEAKING TO YOU?
ELIZABETH: BECAUSE IT'S
MY FAULT JASON'SONE.
