SONNY: JASON'S NOT
IN THE PICTURE ANYMORE.
I'M TELLING YOU NOW.
NO, NOT JUST THIS.
THE WHOLE OPERATION.
WELL --
YOU GOT A PROBLEM WITH THAT,
THEN, YOU KNOW, LET ME KNOW.
GLAD TO HEAR IT.
NO, NO.
JUST CALL ME AS SOON
AS YOU HANDLE YOUR END
OF THINGS.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
SONNY: BYE.
YEAH?
JOHNNY: ELIZABETH WEBBER.
SONNY: YEAH, LET HER IN.
ELIZABETH: HI.
SONNY: HI.
ELIZABETH: ME AGAIN.
SORRY.
SONNY: FOR WHAT?
ELIZABETH: SORT OF AMAZED
YOU'RE STILL SPEAKING TO ME.
I WASN'T SURE YOU'D ACCEPT
THESE.
SONNY: WHAT'S ALL THIS?
ELIZABETH: JUST SOME BROWNIES
MADE.
SONNY: YEAH?
WHY WOULDN'T I BE SPEAKING
TO YOU?
ELIZABETH: BECAUSE IT'S
MY FAULT JASON'S GONE.

ALAN: I AM STARTING TO FEEL
LIKE A WAR CRIMINAL, AND EMILY'S
NOT EVEN HOME YET.
MONICA: I'M THINKING SHE'S
GOING TO BE ENTHUSIASTIC.
ALAN: OH, YEAH.
"OH, GOODIE, MY PARENTS ARE
GETTING DIVORCED."
MONICA: ONLY ON PAPER.
EMILY'S GOING TO KNOW IT'S NOT
REAL.
ALAN: YES, BUT GERTRUDE
WON'T.
CAN YOU THINK OF ANYTHING MORE
UNPLEASANT THAN HAVING GERTRUDE
FOR A STEPMOTHER?
MONICA: GERTRUDE FOR A WIFE.
ALAN: MAYBE WE SHOULD RETHINK
THIS.
MONICA: NO, NO, WE HAVE
RETHOUGHT THIS A THOUSAND TIMES.
COME ON.
THIS IS THE ONLY WAY WE CAN KEEP
EDWARD FROM REPLACING A.J. WITH
NED AT E.L.Q.
ALAN: EMILY WILL THINK WE'RE
TOTALLY DERANGED.
MONICA: EMILY KNOWS THAT
WE ARE.
NOW SHE'S JUST GOING TO KNOW
THAT WE'RE NOT OVER.
ALAN: WELL, IS IT GOING TO BE
MY JOB OR YOURS TO TELL
THE ENTIRE WORLD THAT WE DON'T
LOVE EACH OTHER ANYMORE?
EMILY: OH, NO.
WHAT HAPPENED NOW?

NED: THANKS, BUT I DIDN'T
ORDER THAT.
WAITER: COMPLIMENTS
OF SOMEONE WHO TOLD ME TO TELL
YOU TO ENJOY.
NED: WHERE IS SHE?
WAITER: I MEANT THE GENTLEMAN
OVER THERE.

HANNAH: DO WE HAVE ANY APPLE
JUICE THIS MORNG?
IF NOT, I'LL TAKE ORANGE JUICE.
ARE WE GOING TO HAVE TO GO
THROUGH THIS, LIKE, TWICE A DAY?
BECAUSE I LIVE HERE, SO IT'S
LOGICAL THAT I'M GOING TO EAT
HERE SOMETIMES.
ALL RIGHT, FINE.
I'LL GET MY OWN JUICE.
WOULD IT HELP IF I SAID HOW
SORRY I AM?
BECAUSE IF SO, I'LL SAY IT
AGAIN.
TAMMY: JUST DO ME A FAVOR,
HANNAH.
PAY YOUR TAB WHEN YOU'RE
THROUGH.
HANNAH: YOU KNOW,
TAMMY, I REALLY DON'T NEED
YOU TO MAGNIFY WHAT I ALREADY
FEEL.
TAMMY: HOW YOU FEEL,
HANNAH, MEANS ZILCH TO ME.
ZILCH.
AND IT MEANS ZILCH TO SONNY,
TOO -- I HOPE.
CAN I GET YOU ANYTHING ELSE?
HANNAH: NO.
I HAVE TO SEE SOMEBODY.
THANK YOU.
TAMMY: THAT IS SOME PIECE
OF WORK.

LARKIN: I'VE GOT A PROBLEM.
ROY: OH, WELL, THIS IS
A GREAT PLACE TO TELL ME ABOUT
IT.
WE'RE, WHAT, TWO BLOCKS AWAY
FROM THE CORINTHOS WAREHOUSE?
LARKIN: DOES THAT GIVE
YOU ANY SENSE OF HOW PRESSURED
I FEEL?
I'M PASSING THAT PRESSURE
ONTO YOU.
ROY: BY THREATENING MY COVER?
HOW SMART IS THAT?
LARKIN: THE BUREAU HAS
CHANNELED A LOT OF TIME
AND MONEY INTO THE CORINTHOS
INVESTIGATION WITH NO TANGIBLE
RESULTS.
THAT MAKES US LOOK BAD.
WE DON'T LIKE LOOKING BAD.
ROY: AND I DON'T LIKE BEING
SQUEEZED.
LARKIN: YOU HAVEN'T BEGUN
TO BE SQUEEZED, MR. DiLUCCA.
BUT THAT'S ALL ABOUT TO CHANGE.
NOW, IF YOU'RE AS SMART
AS I THINK YOU ARE, YOU'LL SPEED
UP THIS OPERATION.
ROY: YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN ME AND YOU, JOHN?
I'M NOT AN AGENT.
I'M NOT DESPERATE TO SCURRY UP
THE CHAIN OF COMMAND.
I GOT NOBODY TO IMPRESS.
THEREFORE I GET TO SET MY OWN
PACE.
AND IF YOU GUYS DON'T LIKE IT,
YOU CAN GET SOMEBODY ELSE.
LARKIN: YOU KNOW,
ONE STRATEGY FOR CAREER GROWTH
INVOLVES NEVER TAKING THE BLAME.
NOW, I HAVE TO TELL YOU,
I'M FAIRLY GOOD AT THAT.
ROY: I'LL BET.
LARKIN: AND AGENT FORD HAS IT
DOWN TO A SCIENCE.
ROY: FASCINATING.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU BOTH.
LARKIN: SO IF SONNY CORINTHOS
SLIPS THROUGH THE CRACKS,
SOMEBODY'LL HAVE TO TAKE
THE BLAME.
NOW, IT'S NOT GOING TO BE FORD,
AND YOU CAN BET IT'S NOT GOING
TO BE ME.
BUT THERE IS A GOOD CANDIDATE
FOR PROFESSIONAL DISGRACE
AND A STIFF PRISON TERM --
HANNAH SCOTT.
THAT'S NOT A PROBLEM FOR ME.
IS THAT A PROBLEM FOR YOU?

ROY: SO YOUR IDEA
OF PROVIDING ME WITH INCENTIVE
IS TO THREATEN MY DAUGHTER?
LARKIN: I'M LAYING OUT
THE WAY THINGS WORK.
THAT SOUNDS LIKE A THREAT
TO YOU?
ROY: MAYBE WE OUGHT TO RUN
THIS BY A REVIEW COMMITTEE
OR WHATEVER THE HELL
THE GOVERNMENT USES TO KEEP GUYS
LIKE YOU IN LINE.
LARKIN: I DON'T THINK
YOU WANT TO GO THERE
BECAUSE HERE'S THE CRITICAL
THING.
HANNAH IS NO INNOCENT SCAPEGOAT.
SHE SABOTAGED THE CORINTHOS
CASE.
AND IF WE CAN'T NAIL
THE SUSPECT, WE'LL NAIL
THE SPOILER WHO HELPED HIM
ESCAPE.
ROY: AND THIS STRATEGY IS
RIGHT OUT OF THE AGENCY
HANDBOOK, IS IT?
LARKIN: IT'S TIME TO BRING
CORINTHOS IN.
ROY: YOU KNOW, I'M BETTING
IT'S NOT YOUR CALL TO MAKE.
I'LL SEE YOU.
LARKIN: CHECK WITH FORD,
WHY DON'T YOU?
HE'LL TELL YOU THE EXACT SAME
THING.
ONLY YOU'LL NEED A TRANSLATOR
TO CUT THROUGH ALL THE
BUREAU-SPEAK.
BUT IN THE END, THE MESSAGE
WON'T CHANGE.
I'M BREAKING IT DOWN IN ENGLISH,
SAVING YOU A LONG-DISTANCE CALL.
ROY: WHY IS IT, JOHN,
THAT YOU'RE ALWAYS LOOKING OUT
FOR ME LIKE THIS?
IS IT BECAUSE YOU'RE JUST
BASICALLY A WONDERFUL GUY?
LARKIN: I RESPECT YOU,
DiLUCCA.
YOU'VE DONE GOOD WORK
IN THE PAST.
YOU'RE ALMOST TO THE FINISH
LINE.
DON'T BLOW THIS RACE OVER SOME
PENNY-ANTE THUG.
ROY: I HAVE NO INTENTION
OF BLOWING ANYTHING.
LARKIN: THEN WHY YOU DRAGGING
YOUR FEET?
ROY: LIKE I ALREADY TOLD YOU,
I'M GOING TO DO THIS AT MY OWN
TEMPO.
NOBODY TELLS ME WHEN TO JUMP!
NOT YOU, NOT FORD, NOT
THE GRAND-HIGH POOH-BAH!
WE GOT THAT?
OR DO YOU WANT TO TAKE THIS
CONVERSATION AGAIN FROM
THE GET-GO?
LARKIN: DON'T SAY YOU WEREN'T
WARNED.

HANNAH: HE WAS TRYING
TO PRESSURE YOU, WASN'T HE?
GOD, THAT GUY'S COMPLETELY
OBSESSED.
ROY: YEAH, WELL,
AREN'T WE ALL?
THERE ARE WORSE OBSESSIONS THAN
TRYING TO GET THE JOB DONE,
WOULDN'T YOU SAY?
HANNAH: THANKS FOR POINTING
THAT OUT.
ROY: I'M SORRY.
IT'S A BAD DAY.
HANNAH: THERE'RE GOING TO BE
MANY MORE BAD DAYS IF
YOU CONTINUE TO STAY ON SONNY'S
CASE.
THEY THINK HE'S THE DEVIL
INCARNATE.
YOU KNOW, GIVE ME A BREAK.
AND THE MORE YOU GET TO KNOW
HIM, THE MORE YOU SEE THAT HE'S
NOT.
ROY: CAN WE NOT GET
INTO THIS?
HANNAH: CAN YOU JUST PLEASE
HEAR ME OUT?
FOR SO MANY REASONS,
THIS INVESTIGATION IS WRONG.
CAN'T YOU TAKE YOURSELF OUT
OF IT?
ROY: YOU'RE THE REASON I HAVE
TO STAY IN IT.

BOBBIE: TAMMY --
TAMMY: HMM?
BOBBIE: WHAT'S GOING
ON WITH YOU AND HANNAH?
TAMMY: I DON'T KNOW THAT
WOMAN.
COME TO THINK OF IT, I JUST
DON'T THINK I EVER DID.
BOBBIE: OH.
WELL, THIS IS NEW.
TAMMY: NO.
I JUST CATCH ON A LITTLE BIT
SLOW -- UNLIKE YOUR DAUGHTER,
WHO HAD THAT LITTLE WITCH PEGGED
FROM THE START.
BOBBIE: CARLY WAS COMPLETELY
IRRATIONAL.
SHE HATED HANNAH ON SIGHT.
TAMMY: YEAH, AND AS MUCH
AS I HATE TO ADMIT IT, CARLY WAS
RIGHT BECAUSE HANNAH IS A FAKE.
WE'VE ALL BEEN HAD.
AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU, I FEEL
REALLY TERRIBLE FOR SONNY.
BOBBIE: OH.
OBVIOUSLY THEY'VE BROKEN UP.
TAMMY: YEAH.
AND SONNY'S BEEN HURT.
IT'S NOT EASY FOR A GUY LIKE
HIM.
HE'S GOING TO SHUT DOWN THIS
TIME.
THIS TIME FOR GOOD.
BOBBIE: OH.
NO, YOU NEVER KNOW.
TAMMY: YEAH, YOU DO.
I MEAN, HOW DO YOU COME BACK
FROM SOMETHING LIKE THAT?
ASIDE FROM RIPPING HIS HEART
OUT, CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE WHAT
E HAS DONE TO THAT MAN'S
PRIDE?
BOBBIE: BUT THAT'S LIFE.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
WE ALL HAVE DISAPPOINTMENTS.
WE LICK OUR WOUNDS, AND WE MOVE
ON.
TAMMY: HOW DO YOU MOVE
ON FROM A DIRTY DOUBLE-CROSS
LIKE THE ONE HANNAH PULLED OVER
ON SONNY?
I MEAN, SHE PLAYED HIM.
I WATCHED HER DO IT.
BOBBIE: TAMMY, YOU'RE MAKING
IT SOUND SO CALCULATED.
TAMMY: YEAH, CALCULATED.
THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS.
BOBBIE: ISN'T IT POSSIBLE
THAT HANNAH SIMPLY MET SOMEONE?
[CAR HORN HONKS]
TAMMY: YOU KNOW WHAT?
THERE'S THE DELIVERY TRUCK.
I GOT TO MAKE SURE THE ORDER'S
RIGHT.
HANG ON.

A.J.: I WANT TO WATCH
YOU DRINK TO MY SUCCESS.
NED: REALLY?
WHAT'S THE OCCASION?
FINALLY LINE UP ALL OSE
PAPER CLIPS?
A.J.: YOU KNOW, IT'S AMAZING
WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH PAPER CLIPS
WITH A LITTLE VISION
AND THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF LUCK.
NED: SO YOU'RE HARD AT WORK
ON A PAPER CLIP TOWER?
A.J.: CORPORATE
VICE-PRESIDENT IN CHARGE
OF PAPER CLIPS.
VERY CLEVER.
I'LL GIVE YOU THAT ONE, NED.
BUT LITTLE DID YOU KNOW THAT
FATE WAS ON MY SIDE.
YEAH, THOSE LITTLE PAPER CLIPS
JUST FELL INTO PLACE.
CLIP NUMBER ONE -- YOUR ENORMOUS
INFANTILE EGO.
STORMING OUT OF E.L.Q.,
SULKING LIKE A CHILD.
YOU KNOW, HAD YOU STUCK AROUND
AND COMPETED WITH ME --
NED: YOU'D BE CIRCULATING
YOUR RESUME RIGHT NOW.
A.J.: BUT WE'LL NEVER KNOW,
NOW, WILL WE, BECAUSE YOU PICKED
UP YOUR PRIDE AND HUFFED OFF,
LEAVING THE FIELD ALL TO ME.
NED: YES, BECAUSE I WANTED
YOU TO FAIL ALL ON YOUR OWN --
WHICH YOU WILL, OF COURSE,
SPECTACULARLY.
A.J.: CLIP NUMBER TWO --
I MARRIED CARLY.
NED: YES, A TREMENDOUS BOON
TO YOUR CAREER.
IF YOU BELIEVE, OF COURSE,
THAT BEHIND EVERY GREAT MAN IS
A TICKED-OFF WOMAN WHO HATES
HIM.
A.J.: YOU SEE, SOME PEOPLE
THINK IN PICTURES.
SOME PEOPLE THINK WITH WORDS.
CARLY, MY WONDERFUL WIFE,
WELL, SHE THINKS IN STRATEGIES.
NED: LDER WITH WARDROBE,
MORE SPONTANEOUS AT PARTIES.
A.J.: CARLY COMES UP
WITH STRATEGIES THAT GRANDFATHER
IS PROUD OF -- EVEN APPLAUDS.
NED: HOW MANY TIMES MUST
YOU FALL FLAT ON YOUR FACE
BEFORE YOU REALIZE YOUR
LIMITATIONS?
A.J.: LIMITATIONS?
NED: MM-HMM.
A.J.: NO.
YOU SEE, I PRODUCED
THE QUARTERMAINE HEIR.
AND FOR THAT, I AM GOLDEN
AND I SHALL REMAIN GOLDEN.
NED: SAME OLD DELUSIONS
OF GRANDEUR.
A.J.: I DON'T THINK SO.
DELUSIONS?
NO.
YOU SEE, JASON GETTING
ON HIS BIKE AND RIDING OFF
INTO THE SUNSET WAS THE LAST
PIECE OF THE PUZZLE I NEEDED.
I'M IRREPLACEABLE, NED.
NED: IF YOUR ONLY REPLACEMENT
WERE ZIPPY THE CHIMP,
YOU'D STILL FIND A WAY TO MESS
UP BECAUSE MESSING UP IS WHAT
YOU DO BEST.
IT'S YOUR ONLY TRUE GIFT.
WELL, THAT AND BLOWING HOT AIR.
SO, WHY DON'T YOU JUST BLOW
YOUR SMOKE AT SOMEBODY ELSE,
SOMEBODY WHO BELIEVES YOU?
BECAUSE I HAPPEN TO KNOW YOU GET
MOST PUFFED UP RIGHT BEFORE
YOU CRASH DIVE BACK
INTO THE BOTTLE.
A.J.: OH, YOU WANT TO BELIEVE
THAT.
THE PROBLEM IS YOU DON'T
ANYMORE.
YEAH, SURE, YOU THROW
OUT THE SAME DISPARAGING LITTLE
NOISES, BUT THE FACT IS
YOU'RE THREATENED AND
YOU FEAR ME.
NED: OK, SO, HOW LONG HAVE
YOU BEEN HEARING THESE VOICES?
A.J.: MUST BE OBVIOUS
TO YOU THAT I'M IN A POSITION
TO GET WHATEVER I WANT.
YOU KNOW, YOU BETTER HOPE THAT
I DON'T WAKE UP ONE DAY
AND DECIDE THAT I WANT L&B.

EMILY: LOOK, JUST BECAUSE ONE
OF YOU IS MAD DOESN'T MEAN
YOU DON'T LOVE EACH OTHER
ANYMORE.
I MEAN, YOU'RE JUST MAD.
THAT'S ALL.
MONICA: THAT'S A VERY MATURE
OBSERVATION.
EMILY: SO, THEN, WHY IS
THE KID EXPLAINING THIS
TO THE ADULTS?
MONICA: NO, YOU SEE,
WE'RE NOT ANGRWITH EACH
OTHER -- REALLY.
EMILY: OH, GREAT.
WHAT, YOU'RE JUST, LIKE,
GROWING APART OR SOMETHING?
ALAN: NO, ACTUALLY,
WE'VE NEVER BEEN CLOSER.
MONICA: YEAH.
EMILY: WHOA, WHOA,
WHOA, WAIT.
WOULD SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN
TO ME WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?
MONICA: THIS
FALLING-OUT-OF-LOVE BUSINESS IS
JUST AN ACT WE HAVE DECIDED
TO PUT ON.
EMILY: WHY?
WHAT FOR?
ALAN: FOR A.J.
EMILY: WHY, BECAUSE
HIS MARRIAGE IS A JOKE?
ALAN: NO, WE'RE TRYING
TO PROTECT HIS SELF-ESTEEM
BY KEEPING HIS POSITION SECURE
AT E.L.Q.
EMILY: BY PRETENDING YOU'RE
BREAKING UP?
ALAN: SURELY YOU MUST HAVE
NOTICED HOW GRANDFATHER DANGLES
NED IN FRONT OF A.J.'S FACE ALL
THE TIME.
EMILY: WAIT.
WHAT DOES NED HAVE TO DO
WITH THIS?
MONICA: OK, LISTEN.
IF NED DECIDED TOMORROW THAT
HE WANTED TO COME BACK
TO E.L.Q., THEN EDWARD WOULD
FIRE A.J. BEFORE THEY COULD GET
HIS NAME OFF THE DOOR.
ALAN: NOW, IF WE KEEP NED
AT L&B, THAT'S GOING TO KEEP
A.J.'S POSITION AT E.L.Q. PRETTY
SECURE
WE WANT TO KEEP IT THAT WAY.
MONICA: YES, BECAUSE NED IS
BANKING ON A MERGER BETWEEN L&B
AND CHLOE MORGAN DESIGNS.
BUT THAT CAN'T HAPPEN
IF HER AUNT GERTRUDE SNATCHES
THE COMPANY AWAY.
ALAN: WHICH IS WHY I HAVE
TO MARRY GERTRUDE.
EMILY: SO, ARE YOU
HALLUCINATING, OR AM I?
MONICA: I KNOW.
IT ALL SOUNDS VERY ABSURD.
BUT BELIEVE ME, IT IS FOOLPROOF.
EMILY: RIGHT.
WHICH USUALLY MEANS IT ONLY
MAKES SENSE TO YOU GUYS.
ALAN: WHICH PART OF THIS ARE
YOU NOT UNDERSTANDING?
EMILY: UM -- LET ME THINK --
THE BEGINNING, THE MIDDLE,
AND THE END.
ALAN: OK, LET'S TAKE IT
FROM THE BEGINNING.
MONICA: WELL, NO,
WAIT A MINUTE.
MAYBE I SHOULD START.
ALAN: NO, LET ME SPEAK.
MONICA: NO, WAIT --
ALAN: LET'S TAKE IT
FROM THE BEGINNING.
A.J.'S POSITION --
MONICA: I CAN EXPLAIN IT
MUCH --
ALAN: YOU CAN'T EXPLAIN
ANYTHING.
MONICA: YES, I CAN.
ALAN: A.J.'S POSITION
AT E.L.Q --
MONICA: IT HAS TO DEAL --
ALAN: IS A LITTLE BIT --
MONICA: ALAN --
ALAN: YOU KNOW, IFFY.
MONICA: LET ME JUST --
ALAN: SO, IF WE KEEP NED --
MONICA: ALAN, WILL YOU --
ALAN: AT L&B --
MONICA: IF WE --

SONNY: WHERE'D YOU GET
THE IDEA YOU RAN JASON OUT
OF TOWN?
ELIZABETH: OH, I -- I DN'T
MEAN THAT THE WAY IT SOUNDED.
IT'S NOT LIKE THE WORLD REVOLVES
AROUND ME.
BUT I'M PRETTY SURE THAT I WAS
A FACTOR, AND THAT MAKES ME FEEL
REALLY AWFUL.
SONNY: WELL, WHAT DID YOU DO
EXACTLY TO MAKE HIM LEAVE?
ELIZABETH: BASICALLY, I THINK
I HUNG ON TOO TIGHT.
SONNY: HMM.
YOU LET HIM CRASH AT YOUR PLACE
WITH A GUNSHOT WOUND.
YOU FED HIM THREE MEALS A DAY.
YOU CHANGED HIS BANDAGES.
YOU GAVE HIM MEDICINE.
I DON'T THINK THAT'S A LOT
OF PRESSURE.
ELIZABETH: JASON GAVE ME
SO MUCH MORE THAN I COULD EVER
GIVE HIM.
HE WAS MY FRIEND, SOMEONE
I COULD TALK TO, SOMEONE I KNEW
WOULDN'T JUDGE ME.
SONNY: I'M STILL NOT HEARING
WHAT YOU DID TMAKE HIM GO
AWAY.
ELIZABETH: DID JASON EVER
TELL YOU ABOUT HOW WE STARTED
BEING FRIENDS?
OH, PROBABLY NOT, RIGHT?
I MEAN, CONSIDERING JASON.
WELL, I WENT INTO JAKE'S ONE
NIGHT LOOKING FOR TROUBLE.
I FOUND IT RIGHT AWAY, AND JASON
SAVED ME.
AND NOW HE'S TRYING TO DO IT
AGAIN.
SONNY: HOW DO YOU FIGURE
THAT?
ELIZABETH: WELL,
AFTER THE BOMB AT MY STUDIO,
HE'S BEEN REALLY WORRIED ABOUT
ME.
HE'S TRYING TO KEEP HIS DISTANCE
SO THAT I WON'T GET HURT
BECAUSE OF HIM.
SONNY: MAKES SENSE.
ELIZABETH: BUT AFTER HE MOVED
OUT OF MY STUDIO, IT WAS LIKE
HE LEFT THIS HOLE IN MY LIFE.
I KEPT CALLING HIM, LEAVING HIM
MESSAGES.
I THOUGHT ABOUT HIM ALL
THE TIME.
YOU KNOW, IT'S LIKE WHY NOT JUST
WEAR A SIGN ON MY CHEST --
"IF YOU WANT TO LEAN ON JASON
MORGAN, THE WAY TO GET TO HIM IS
THROUGH ME."
SONNY: THESE PEOPLE WHO HURT
JASON -- YOU THINK THEY COULD
READ YOUR MIND?
ELIZABETH: NO.
BUT JASON COULD -- SORT OF.
SONNY: THINGS GOT STALE
WITH JASON.
PEOPLE DISAPPOINTED HIM
BIG-TIME.
YOU WERE PROBABLY THE ONLY
FRIEND HE HAD WHO HE COULD COUNT
ON.
ELIZABETH: YOU WOULDN'T JUST
BEING SAYING THAT?
SONNY: DO I STRIKE
YOU AS THE KIND OF GUY WHO WOULD
SAY THINGS TO MAKE PEOPLE HAPPY?
ELIZABETH: ACTUALLY, NO.
SONNY: OK, THEN.
ELIZABETH: DO YOU THINK HE'S
GOING TO BE OK?
SONNY: OK AS IN SAFE,
OR OK AS IN HAPPY?
ELIZABETH: BOTH, I GUESS.
SONNY: SAFE, YEAH.
I MEAN, JASON, HE'S SMART.
HE KNOWS HOW TO DISAPPEAR.
HAPPY?
YOU KNOW, THAT'S A COIN TOSS
LIKE IT IS FOR EVERYBODY ELSE.
ELIZABETH: YEAH.
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW, I HAVE
THIS -- THERE'S THIS BLACK
AND WHITE PICTURE ON
MY GRANDMOTHER'S DESK TAKEN --
I DON'T KNOW -- MAYBE 10,
12 YEARS AGO.
IT'S OF ME AND MY MOM AND DAD
AND SISTER AND MY
COCKER SPANIEL, ELEANOR.
WE'RE IN FRONT OF THIS BIG TREE
IN THE FRONT YARD OF OUR OLD
HOUSE.
THE FAMILY.
YOU KNOW, THE THINGS I LOVED,
THE THINGS I HATED.
I REMEMBER THINKING THAT EVERY
LITTLE -- EVERY LAST BIT WAS
GOING TO LAST FOREVER.
YOU KNOW, ROOTED TO THE SPOT,
JUST LIKE THAT TREE.
BUT I BET THE TREE'S GONE NOW.
WHO KNOWS?
MAYBE EVEN THE HOUSE.
WHY AM I TELLING YOU ALL THIS?
SONNY: NOW YOU SEE IT,
NOW YOU DON'T.
THAT'S WHAT LIFE'S ABOUT.
PEOPLE COME, PEOPLE GO.
SOMETIMES IT'S HARD.
YOU JUST GOT TO ROLL WITH IT.
ELIZABETH: ESPECIALLY WHEN
THE ONES WHO LEAVE YOU ARE
THE ONES YOU NEED THE MOST.
SONNY: YOU KNOW, I'M JUST
A PHONE CALL AWAY
IF YOU EVER NEED
ANYTHING.
IF YOU WANT TO
BAKE ME SOME MORE BROWNIES,
YOU KNOW?
ELIZABETH: YEAH,
BECAUSE BROWNIES -- BROWNIES IS
IT.
I LEARNED THE HARD WAY,
AND SO DID MY FRIENDS.
SONNY: IF YOU EVER NEED
A HOME-COOKED MEAL, I MEAN, I --
COME ON BY, YOU KNOW?
I'M A GOOD COOK.
ELIZABETH: I MAY JUST TAKE
YOU UP ON THAT.
SONNY: YOUR TASTE BUDS
WILL THANK YOU BECAUSE
I'M A MASTER.
ELIZABETH: THANK YOU.
SONNY: YEAH.

BOBBIE: ARE YOU PLAYING
HOOKIE FROM THE HOSPITAL?
TONY: NO, I'M FILLING
IN AT THE CLINIC THIS WEEK.
BOBBIE: IS THAT A GOOD THING
OR A BAD THING?
TONY: WELL, I LIKE BEING BACK
IN THE TRENCHES, YOU KNOW.
I GET TO SEE A LOT OF
INTERESTING MEDICAL PROBLEMS
FROM BROKEN BONES TO CEREBRAL
HEMORRHAGES AND FROM HOUSEHOLD
CUTS TO PREGNANCIES.
ALTHOUGH PREGNANCY'S NOT
A PROBLEM, USUALLY.
BOBBIE: HMM.
I'LL BET THE STAFF AT THE CLINIC
WAS HAPPY TO SEE YOU.
TONY: YEAH, LIKE A RAY
OF SUNSHINE.
THAT'S ME.
BOBBIE: WELL, EVEN WHEN
YOU'RE NOT, I THINK YOU'RE
A WONDERFUL DOCTOR.
TONY: I USED TO BE.
BOBBIE: TONY, IS THERE
SOMETHING GOING ON I DON'T KNOW
ABOUT?
TONY: LIKE WHAT?
BOBBIE: I DON'T KNOW.
LIKE ARE YOU DEPRESSED
OR SOMETHING?
TONY: NO.
NO, NOT AT ALL.
NO, NO, I'M GRATEFUL TO BE
PRACTICING MEDICINE AT ALL.
YOU KNOW, IT'S JUST THERE ARE
SOME DAYS, AND THIS IS ONE
OF THEM, WHEN I MISS
THE HANDS-ON STUFF, YOU KNOW?
I MISS DOING THE PROCEDURES.
I MISS TAKING A TOUCH-AND-GO
SITUATION AND TURNING IT AROUND.
BOBBIE: BUT YOU STILL DO
THAT.
TONY: BY PROXY.
I MEAN, I TELL EVERYONE ELSE HOW
TO PROCEED.
WHY DO I SOUND LIKE I'M
COMPLAINING?
BECAUSE I'M NOT.
I MEAN, I HAVE MADE PEACE
WITH WHAT IS.
BOBBIE: I WOULD IMAGINE SOME
DAYS YOU MUST FEEL LIKE
A BRILLIANT VIOLINIST WHO CAN'T
HOLD A BOW ANYMORE.
TONY: VERY INTERESTING.
JUST EVERY OTHER THURSDAY.
BUT THE REST OF THE TIME,
I DON'T GO THERE AT ALL.
I DON'T DWELL ON THE DOWNSIDE.
THERE'S NO POINT TO IT.
I MEAN, IF LIFE TEACHES
YOU ANYTHING, IT TEACHES
YOU THAT.
BOBBIE: YEAH.
WELL, YOU'LL GET NO ARGUMENT
FROM ME.
TONY: HOW ARE YOU DOING?
BOBBIE: NOT BAD.
I'M NOT DWELLING ON
THE DOWNSIDE.
I'M STARTING TO FEEL MORE
AND MORE NORMAL EVERY DAY.
AND LUCAS IS REBOUNDING
FROM THE WHOLE JERRY THING.
AND CARLY'S BETWEEN CRISES,
KNOCK WOOD, SO --
TONY?
WHAT DID I SAY?

SONNY: TELL LIEUTENANT I'M
BUSY.
TAGGERT: WHY DON'T YOU TELL
HIM YOURSELF?
SONNY: BETTER YET, WHY DON'T
YOU GO AHEAD, MAKE YOURSELF
AT HOME, AND I'LL CALL
MY ATTORNEY.
MAYBE SHE CAN SIT IN WHILE WE'RE
TALKING --
TAGGERT: NO NEED TO THROW
A PARTY.
I'M NOT HERE TO SEE YOU.
I WAS OVER THERE AT ANGER BOY'S.
HE WASN'T HOME.
I THOUGHT MAYBE HE WAS OVER HERE
WITH HIS, YOU KNOW, MASTER.
SONNY: HE'S NOT.
TAGGERT: WELL, WHY DON'T
YOU TELL YOUR BOY TO GIVE ME
A CALL.
SONNY: WHY WOULD I DO THAT?
TAGGERT: BECAUSE HE'S A MAJOR
WITNESS IN A BOMB SCARE AND I'M
NOT FINISHED LEANING ON HIM YET.
SONNY: GOOD LUCK TRACKING HIM
DOWN, LIEUTENANT.
TAGGERT: I HAVE A TALENT
FOR THAT.
SONNY: THEN BOY VOYAGE
BECAUSE JASON LEFT TOWN.
HE HAS NO PLANS TO RETURN.
TAGGERT: YEAH, RIGHT.
SONNY: YEAH, RIGHT.
TAGGERT: AND I HAVE A SEAT
ON THE NEXT MARS PROBE.
SONNY: GO AHEAD.
CHECK HIS DOOR.
DO A STAKEOUT 24/7.
HE'S NOT COMING BACK ANYTIME
SOON.
HE SPLIT.
TAGGERT: WELL, GOOD THINGS
COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT.
ONE DOWN.
ONE TO GO.

HANNAH: I CAN'T STAND
BY AND WATCH MY OWN FATHER BRING
DOWN THE MAN I LOVE.
ROY: THEN DON'T WATCH.
HANNAH: WHY ARE YOU DOING
THIS TO ME?
ROY: I'M NOT DOING IT TO YOU.
YOU KNOW WHY I'M DOING IT.
SONNY CORINTHOS IS ON
THE F.B.I. TARGET LIST.
HANNAH: THERE ARE A LOT
OF PEOPLE WHO MAKE THEIR LIVING
KILLING PEOPLE.
WHY DON'T YOU GUYS GO AFTER
THEM?
WHY TARGET A DECENT MAN?
ROY: COME ON.
"A DECENT MAN"?
HE'S DECENT ACCORDING TO WHOM?
HANNAH: ACCORDING TO ME.
I KNOW HIM BETTER THAN YOU,
BETTER THAN FORD, BETTER THAN
LARKIN, BETTER THAN ANY STUPID
AGENCY DATABANK.
ROY: WELL --
HANNAH: I KNOW WHAT'S IN THIS
MAN'S HEART.
ROY: GREAT, GREAT.
YOU CAN BE A CHARACTER WITNESS
AT HIS SENTENCING HEARING.
HANNAH: I KNOW I'M NOT MAKING
YOU VERY PROUD.
ROY: PRIDE --
HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT, BABY.
I --
YOU'RE SCARING ME, ALL RIGHT?
I'M AFRAID FOR YOU.
HANNAH: WELL, I'M AFRAID
FOR SONNY.
SORRY.
I CAN'T HELP HOW I FEEL.
ROY: YOU WANT TO SPEND
THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
WITH YOUR HAND PRESSED UP
AGAINST A PLEXIGLAS WINDOW,
LOOKING AT HIM, WAITING
FOR APPEALS THAT AREN'T GOING
TO COME THROUGH?
THE MAN IS GOING TO JAIL
FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.
HANNAH: THERE'S NO GUARANTEE
OF THAT.
ROY: AND THAT'S THE BEST-CASE
SCENARIO.
IT MAY PLAY WITH YOU GOING
TO JAIL IN A MATCHING CELL
SERVING TIME FOR OBSTRUCTION.
IT'S REAL.
HANNAH: DO YOU HATE SONNY?
ROY: I DON'T GIVE A DAMN
ABOUT SONNY!
I JUST WISH THIS WAS OVER.
HANNAH: SO, THEN, WHY CAN'T
YOU GIVE THIS ASSIGNMENT
TO SOMEBODY ELSE?
ROY: BECAUSE SOMEBODY ELSE'LL
PICK IT UP WHERE I LEFT OFF.
HANNAH: WELL, LET THEM.
I DON'T CARE WHO TAKES OVER --
LARKIN, FORD --
ROY: HANNAH --
ROY: I DON'T CARE.
ROY: HANNAH, WHAT DIFFERENCE
DOES IT MAKE WHO BRINGS THE MAN
IN?
HANNAH: IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
TO ME.
WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?
ARE YOU TRYING TO PUNISH HIM
FOR WHAT'S HAPPENED TO ME?
ROY: OH, BELIEVE ME,
NOTHING HAS HAPPENED TO YOU YET.
HANNAH: THIS IS BECAUSE
OF ME, RIGHT?
THEY'RE THREATENING ME SO YOU'LL
TAKE SONNY DOWN.

BOBBIE: TONY, I KNOW THAT
LOOK.
SO, WHAT DID I DO TO PROVOKE
THAT EXPRESSION?
TONY: WELL, DON'T GET ME
WRONG, I MEAN, BUT WHEN YOU SAID
"KNOCK WOOD," THAT SORT
OF STRUCK ME AS --
BOBBIE: I KNOW -- NAIVE.
BECAUSE CARLY IS LIKE THIS LIVE
VOLCANO AND YOU CERTAINLY CAN'T
INFLUENCE HER BY KNOCKING WOOD.
ALL I CAN DO IS CROSS MY FINGERS
AND PRAY.
TONY: SO, CARLY'S ALL RIGHT,
THEN?
BOBBIE: OH, YEAH.
BUT, YOU KNOW, THE MINUTE
I ANSWER IN THE POSITIVE IS
THE MINUTE HER WHOLE LIFE IS
GOING TO EXPLODE, AND I DON'T
WANT TO TEMPT THE FATES,
SO LET'S JUST THANK GOD FOR THIS
PERIOD OF RELATIVE PEACE,
HOWEVER LONG IT LASTS.
TONY: THAT'S A GOOD POLICY
ACROSS THE BOARD.
BOBBIE: YEAH.
YOU WERE WRONG, YOU KNOW,
ABOUT NOT BEING THE DOCTOR
YOU USED TO BE.
I THINK YOU'RE WONDERFUL,
AND I THINK I HAVE SEEN
YOU HANDLE PATIENTS FOR YEARS,
AND I THINK THE RICHMOND AVENUE
CLINIC IS VERY LUCKY TO HAVE
YOU.
TONY: THAT MEANS A LOT,
ESPECIALLY COMING FROM YOU.
THANK YOU.

ALAN: ONCE GERTRUDE SIGNS
THE MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE,
SHE FORFEITS ALL CLAIMS
TO CHLOE'S COMPANY.
MONICA: AND NED AND CHLOE GO
AHEAD WITH THEIR MERGER,
WHICH REMOVES NED COMPLETELY
FROM E.L.Q.
EMILY: SO, THEN, WHY DOES DAD
HAVE TO DO THIS?
WHY CAN'T SOMEONE ELSE MARRY
GERTRUDE?
ALAN: FOR WHAT, HER CHARM?
HER WIT?
MONICA: HER GENEROUS HEART?
HER FUN-LOVING SPIRIT?
EMILY: YEAH, YOU GOT A POINT.
MONICA: MM-HMM.
ALAN: SO, IS THIS STARTING
TO MAKE SENSE TO YOU?
EMILY: SO, WHO'S GOING
TO BELIEVE THAT YOU DUMPED MOM
FOR GERTRUDE?
MONICA: WELL, ACTUALLY,
I'M THE DUMPER.
ALAN: I NEVER AGREED TO BE
THE DUMPEE.
MONICA: IT WAS MY POSITION
THAT YOU APPROPRIATED.
ALAN: THE CHIEF OF STAFF
POSITION IS MINE.
MONICA: WAS, UNTIL
YOU OPPED FUNCTIONING.
ALAN: I'M FUNCTIONING VERY
WELL.
MONICA: OH, THAT'S FINE
AND DANDY.
BUT I HAD TO HOLD DOWN THE FORT
IN THE MEANTIME WHILE
YOU REASSEMBLED YOUR LIFE.
NOW, I DON'T BEGRUDGE YOU THAT,
BUT YOU JUST DON'T BREEZE BACK
ON IN.
ALAN: "BREEZE"?
EXCUSE ME?
"BREEZE"?
MONICA: YES, BREEZE.
EMILY: HEY, HEY, HEY!
HEY, STOP, OK?
I GET IT.
I GET THE POINT.
YOU'RE VERY GOOD AT ARGUING.
THERE'S ONLY ONE PROBLEM,
THOUGH.
ALAN: HMM?
EMILY: YOU GUYS ARGUE ALL
THE TIME, WHICH MEANS YOU'RE
REALLY GOING TO HAVE TO GO
FOR THE JUGULAR TO SELL THIS.
ALAN: OH, WE CAN DO THAT.
MONICA: AND I CAN BREAK
THINGS.
THERE IS A VASE I'VE WANTED
TO SMASH FOR A LONG TIME,
AND THAT MONSTROSITY UP
ON THE THIRD -- OH --
ALAN: OH, YOU START BREAKING
STUFF LIKE THAT, YOU COULD HURT
SOMEONE.
EMILY: SO, DOES THIS MEAN
THAT I CAN MAYBE SMASH THE END
TABLE UPSTAIRS?
MONICA and ALAN: NO.
EMILY: OK.
I JUST, YOU KNOW, THOUGHT I'D
HELP, MAYBE.
MONICA: SO, DO YOU THINK THAT
WE ARE OUT OF OUR COLLECTIVE
MINDS?
EMILY: I THINK YOU ARE
TOTALLY BIZARRE.
BUT WHY CHANGE THAT?
ALAN: I'M NOT SURE HOW
TO TAKE THAT.
MONICA: OH, I THINK WE'LL
TAKE IT AS A THUMBS UP AND BE
GLAD.
EMILY: HEY, YOU KNOW WHAT
I THINK?
I THINK THAT I SHOULD TOTALLY
FREAK OUT AND BE TOTALLY BUMMED
THAT YOU GUYS ARE GETTING
DIVORCED AND THAT I STAY OUT ALL
NIGHT AND I DON'T COME BACK
DURING CURFEW AND I'M GONE
FOR DAYS --
ALAN: JUST STOP RIGHT THERE.
MONICA: DON'T EVEN THINK
ABOUT IT.
ALAN: NICE TRY.
VERY SMOOTH.
MONICA: YOU SEE JUAN ENOUGH
AS IT IS.
EMILY: WHAT ARE YOU TALKING
ABOUT?
I BARELY EVER GET TO SEE JUAN.
MONICA: OH, EXCUSE ME?
ALAN: HE IS NEVER OUT
OF YOUR SIGHT.
EMILY: YOU NEVER LET ME SEE
HIM.
ALAN: YOU ARE GLUED
TO HIS HIP.
EMILY: YOU WON'T LET --
MONICA: FIXTURE IN THIS
HOUSE.
EMILY: THAT IS NOT TRUE --
ALAN: IF YOU'RE NOT SIAMESE
TWINS, THE TWO OF YOU.
EMILY: YOU --

TAGGERT: ACTUALLY,
I'M FEELING KIND OF SORRY
FOR YOU, YOU KNOW?
COFFEE BUSINESS IS NEVER GOING
TO BE THE SAME.
YOU DON'T HAVE A LOT OF FRIENDS.
I MEAN, DO YOU HAVE ANY FRIENDS
AT ALL?
SONNY: I'LL MANAGE.
TAGGERT: MAYBE.
SONNY: BROWNIE?
TAGGERT: THEN AGAIN,
MAYBE NOT.
I MEAN, MORGAN'S A HARD ACT
TO FOLLOW.
WHO YOU GOING TO GET TO TAKE
THOSE BULLETS FOR YOU NOW?

HANNAH: SO, WHAT DID
THEY THREATEN?
TAKE MY BADGE AWAY?
ROY: ONE OF THESE DAYS WE'RE
GOING TO GET ON WITH OUR LIVES.
HANNAH: SEND ME TO PRISON?
WHAT?
ROY: LEAVE IT ALONE.
HANNAH: I NEVER MEANT THIS
TO HURT YOU.
ROY: IT DIDN'T.
HANNAH: THEY'VE GOT
YOU BY THE THROAT.
ROY: I CAN HANDLE IT.
HANNAH: WHY SHOULD YOU EVEN
HAVE TO?
ROY: BECAUSE YOU'RE
MY DAUGHTER AND I LOVE YOU MORE
THAN ANYTHING ELSE ON THIS
EARTH.
HANNAH: BUT I SCREWED UP
SO BAD.
ROY: NO, YOU DIDN'T.
YOU JUST FELL IN LOVE.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT MY WISH IS
FOR YOU?
WHAT I WISH YOU COULD PROMISE ME
IS THAT YOU WOULD TRY TO PUT
TH EPISODE OF YOUR LIFE BEHIND
YOU BECAUSE I KNOW --
I'M YOUR DAD --
I KNOW IF YOU DON'T,
YOU'RE GOING TO DESTROY
YOURSELF.
HANNAH: I CAN'T PROMISE
ANYTHING.
ROY: YOU'RE TUNING ME OUT.
HANNAH: NO, I DON'T MEAN
TO DO THAT.
ROY: YOU ARE.
I KNOW HOW YOU GET WHEN YOU SHUT
DOWN.
YOU'RE TUNING ME OUT,
AND I UNDERSTAND WHY, AND IT
DOESN'T MATTER BECAUSE I'M NOT
GOING TO LET UP ON YOU.
I'M GOING TO KEEP AT YOU.
IF I HAVE TO BURN A GROOVE
INTO YOUR BRAIN, I'M GOING TO DO
IT.
ROY: I'M NOT GOING TO DO IT
RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I GOT
A MEETING.
HANNAH: WITH SONNY?
ROY: WHO ELSE?
HANNAH: COFFEE BUSINESS?
ROY: NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
HANNAH: WAIT.
ROY: WHAT?
HANNAH: NOTHING.
ROY: I'LL SEE YOU.
HANNAH: I'LL SEE YOU.

ALEXIS: OH, DON'T TELL ME --
ALAN'S BAILED ON GERTRUDE
PROJECT?
NED: NO, NO, NO.
I THINK EVERYTHING'S ON TRACK.
ALEXIS: OH.
THEN WHY ARE YOU SO MISERABLE?
NED: DID YOU KNOW THAT JASON
HAS LEFT TOWN FOR GOOD?
ALEXIS: NO.
NED: A.J. IS NOW
THE HEIR APPARENT.
ALEXIS: WELL, HONEY,
THAT'S NOT EXACTLY NEWS.
JASON WAS NEVER REMOTELY
INTERESTED IN JOINING THE FAMILY
BUSINESS.
NED: YES, BUT THE POINT IS
GRANDFATHER'S HOPES ARE NOW
DASHED, HOWEVER UNREALISC
THEY WERE.
ALEXIS: IS THAT A BAD THING?
NED: ORDINARILY I WOULD
GLEEFULLY WAIT FOR E.L.Q. STOCK
TO PLUNGE AND FOR A.J. TO PROVE
HIS CLUELESSNESS AND THEREBY
EARN GRANDFATHER'S ETEAL
DISDAIN.
ALEXIS: I DON'T SEE ANY GLEE.
NED: NO.
NO, THERE'S NONE AT ALL
BECAUSE HOWEVER CLUELESS
A.J. MAY BE, CARLY IS ANYTHING
BUT.
ALEXIS: CARLY DOESN'T EVEN
LIKE A.J.
NED: YES, BUT SHE WANTS HIM
TO SUCCEED.
MORE FOR HER TO PLUNDER WHEN
SHE GRINDS HIM INTO DUST.
SO, NOW A.J. DOESN'T HAVE
TO THINK AT ALL.
HE'S GOT CARLY FOR THAT.
AND SHE WILL STRATEGIZE
AND MANIPULATE UNTIL A.J. WILL
JUST SHINE.
ALEXIS: OK.
SO?
NED: "SO"?
ALEXIS: SO?
I DISTINCTLY REMEMBER
YOU WASHING YOUR HANDS OF EDWARD
AND E.L.Q.
NED: YES, I DID, DIDN'T I?
ALEXIS: YES, YOU DID.
I WAS A WITNESS.
NED: AND CAN YOU EXPLAIN
TO ME WHY I DID THAT AGAIN?
NO, NO.
ACTUALLY, DON'T EXPLAIN TO ME.
JUST TELL ME WHY I SHOULDN'T GO
BACK AND TRY TO GET MY OLD JOB
BACK.

ALAN: WELL, I THOUGHT THAT
WENT AS WELL AS COULD BE
EXPECTED.
EMILY WAS A VERY GOOD SPORT.
MONICA: SO, NOW ALL WE HAVE
TO DO IS LACERATE EACH OTHER
IN PUBLIC.
ALAN: THAT'S ALL YOU HAVE
TO DO.
I HAVE TO POUR OUT MY WOUNDED
HEART TO GERTRUDE.
MONICA: NOT YET.
DON'T MAKE ANY MOVES
AT THE MOMENT, OK?
ALAN: OK.
I WILL TRY TO CONTAIN MYSELF.
MONICA: EVEN THOUGH YOUR WIFE
IS TORMENTING YOU --
ALAN: EXQUISITELY TORMENTED.
MONICA: YOU ARE TRYING
TO HANG ON TO YOUR MARRIAGE.
ALAN: OH, I'M TRYING
TO CONTAIN MYSELF.
MONICA: BUT YOU ARE
IRRESISTABLY DRAWN TO GERTRUDE.
ALAN: OH, IT IS BEYOND
ANYTHING.
MONICA: OH, BUT YOU ARE MUCH,
MUCH TOO NOBLE TO ACT ON THAT.
SHE'S GOING TO LOVE IT.
ALAN: I LOVE YOU.
MONICA: SO, YOU WITH ME?
ALAN: I AM TOTAL
AND UTTERLY RIVETED.
MONICA: WE'RE ON.
ALAN: AH!

ELIZABETH: YOUR ORDER WILL BE
READY IN A FEW MINUTES.
TAGGERT: OH, THANKS.
I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT JASON
MORGAN LEAVING TOWN.
ELIZABETH: SO, WHY AREN'T
YOU ORDERING CHAMPAGNE?
TAGGERT: WELL, I MIGHT BE
IFOU WERE SERVING IT.
ON THE OTHER HAND, I'M NOT
A TOTAL JERK.
YOU AND MORGAN WERE BUDDIES
AND YOU'VE HAD ENOUGH GOOD-BYES.
ELIZABETH: YOU'RE RIGHT.
YOU'RE NOT A TOTAL JERK.
TAGGERT: WELL, MAYBE
YOU SHOULD RESERVE YOUR JUDGMENT
UNTIL YOU HEAR ME OUT.
I STOPPED BY SONNY'S EARLIER
TODAY.
APPARENTLY YOU'D BEEN THERE
BEFORE ME.
ELIZABETH: HOW DID YOU KNOW
THAT?
TAGGERT: YOUR BROWNIES.
ELIZABETH: SO?
A LOT OF PEOPLE MAKE BROWNIES.
TAGGERT: NOT ASSOCIATES
OF SONNY'S.
THEY MAKE BOMBS.
ELIZABETH: OK, I KNOW WHERE
THIS IS GOING.
TAGGERT: NOW, HOWEVER
I BADMOUTHED MORGAN,
CORINTHOS IS 10 TIMES WORSE.
ELIZABETH: THAT'S
YOUR OPINION.
TAGGERT: THE BODY COUNT BEARS
ME OUT.
YOU'RE A GREAT KID,
ELIZABETH, AND --
ELIZABETH: LIEUTENANT,
I DON'T CONSIDER MYSELF A KID
FOR REASONS YOU ALREADY KNOW.
TAGGERT: I JUST DON'T WANT
TO SEE YOU GET HURT.
ELIZABETH: WELL, I WOULDN'T
WANT TO SEE YOU GET HURT,
EITHER.
THAT'S NOT GOING TO CHANGE HOW
YOU LIVE.
YOU'RE A NICE MAN.
A REALLY NICE MAN.
TAGGERT: OK, I READ YOU.
I READ YOU.
NO HARM DONE.
ELIZABETH: NONE.
I'LL GET YOUR ORDER.

ROY: SORRY I'M LATE.
SONNY: FIVE MINUTES ISN'T
LATE.
CAN I OFFER YOU A DRINK?
ROY: NO, I'M FINE, THANKS.
SONNY: THAT JOB WE
DISCUSSED -- YOU STILL
INTERESTED?
ROY: ABSOLUTELY.
SONNY: IT'S A FAIRLY MPLE
RUN.
YOU GO DOWN TO MY CASINO,
GET A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT
OF CASH, AND BRING IT BACK
TO ME.
CAN YOU HANDLE THAT?
ROY: I DON'T SEE WHY NOT.
SONNY: I DON'T FORESEE ANY
PROBLEM, BUT YOU NEVER KNOW.
IF YOU GET INTERCEPTED
BY SOMEBODY INSIDE THE
GOVERNMENT OR OUT, YOU'RE
ON YOUR OWN.
GOT THAT?
ROY: YEAH.
THE CASH HAS NO CONNECTION
TO YOU.
SONNY: SO, YOU IN?
ROY: YEAH, I'M IN.
WHEN DO I LEAVE?
SONNY: ABOUT AN HOUR.
BOAT WILL PICK YOU UP
ON THE DOCKS.
YOU'RE GOING TO NEED THIS.
SONNY: IF YOU GOT ANY SECOND
THOUGHTS, YOU KNOW, NOW IS
THE TIME TO BAIL OUT.
ROY: NO, NO.
NO, I'M FINE.
SONNY: ARE YOU SURE?
ROY: ABSOLUTELY, MAN.
SONNY: BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHAT?
IF I WERE AN EX-CON, I'D BE
NERVOUS, YOU KNOW, BECAUSE,
YOU KNOW, I MEAN, IF SOMETHING
HAPPENS AND YOU GOT TO GO
BACK --
ROY: YOU KNOW, TH IS
SIMPLE.
YOU KNOW, THIS IS -- I LIKE
MY CHANCES.
SONNY: FINE, FINE.
CAN I ASK YOU WHY?
ROY: I DON'T SEE THE FUTURE
IN COFFEE BEANS.
I MEAN, HAULING THEM AROUND LIKE
I BEEN DOING, YOU KNOW?
I JUST -- LIKE I SAID,
I THINK -- I THINK I CAN DO
MORE.
SONNY: WELL, HEY,
HERE'S YOUR CHANCE.
ROY: THAT'S ALL I ASK FOR.
SONNY: FAIR ENOUGH.
ALL RIGHT.
ROY: YEAH. THANKS.
SONNY: YEAH.

ALEXIS: THE SINKING FEELING
THAT YOU'RE EXPERIENCING RIGHT
NOW -- SOMEWHERE BETWEEN RAGE
AND DESPAIR --
NED: THAT'S IT -- EXACTLY.
ALEXIS: THAT'S WHAT
E.L.Q. DOES TO QUARTERMAINES.
IT EATS ITS YOUNG.
NED: FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
ALEXIS: THAT'S WHY YOU LEFT
THE COMPANY AND THAT'S WHY
YOU'RE NOT GOING BACK.
NED: YES.
WHAT WOULD I DO WITHOUT YOU?
ALEXIS: I DON'T KNOW,
BUT YOU'LL NEVER HAVE TO FIND
OUT.
NED: LET'S TOAST TO THAT
IN YOUR ROOM.
ALEXIS: OK.
NED: THE DRINKS ARE
ON JUNIOR -- AND THE JOKE.

MONICA: THAT WAS AN INSULT
TO MY INTELLIGENCE,
TRYING TO KISS ME TO SHUT ME UP.
ALAN: EXCUSE ME FOR TRYING.
MONICA: TRYING TO HIDE
OUR PROBLEMS UNDER A HUG.
PHONY KISSES AREN'T THE ANSWER.
A.J.: IT LOOKED PRETTY REAL
TO ME.
MONICA: OH, FINE,
TAKE YOUR FATHER'S SIDE.
A.J.: YOU KNOW WHAT?
I HAVE MARITAL PROBLEMS
OF MY OWN.
YOU GUYS ARE ON YOUR OWN
WITH YOURS.
ALAN: NICE SAVE.
MONICA: CLOSE.
ALAN: TOO CLOSE.
THIS IS GOING TO BE VERY HARD.
MONICA: MM-HMM.

BOBBIE: HI.
ROY: HI.
BOBBIE: TAMMY GAVE ME
YOUR MESSAGE, BUT I THOUGHT
WE WEREN'T MEETING TILL TONIGHT.
ROY: YEAH, YOU KNOW,
I'M REALLY SORRY, BUT SOMETHING
HAS COME UP AND I'M GOING
TO HAVE TO CANCEL.
I'M HOPING WE CAN DO IT ANOTHER
TIME?
BOBBIE: OH, YEAH, SURE.
I MEAN, YOU KNOW, IT'S JUST A --
IT'S A BUNCH OF OLD SNAPSHOTS.
IT'S NOT LIKE THEY'RE GOING
ANYPLACE.
ROY: WELL, I'D REALLY LIKE
TO DO IT, SO I'LL GIVE
YOU A CALL.
BOBBIE SURE.
WHENEVER.
ROY: OK.
WELL, THANKS.
BOBBIE: TAKE CARE.
ROY: I ALWAYS DO.

THE NEXT "GENERAL HOSPITAL."

"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

JAX: TRY IT AND I'LL KILL
YOU.

HELENA: HOW WONDERFUL TO SEE
MY DEAR ONES SMILING.

MIKE: HE JUST LEFT?
SONNY: THAT'S THE WAY JASON
WANTED IT.

MAN: U.S. CUSTOMS.
WE'D LIKE TO ASK YOU A FEW
QUESTIONS.

BOBBIE: I FOUND OUT.
