NIKOLAS: ELIZABETH.
ELIZABETH: HEY.
NIKOLAS: YOU FINISHED
FOR THE DAY?
ELIZABETH: YEAH.
NIKOLAS: GREAT.
WELL, I -- I HAVE TO PICK
SOMETHING UP FOR MY UNCLE
IN A FEW MINUTES AT THE LAUNCH,
BUT THEN I WAS GOING TO GO CATCH
A MOVIE.
ANY INTEREST?
ELIZABETH: OH.
I HAVE AN OIL ASSIGNMENT I'M
SUPPOSED TO START.
I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S
GOING TO BE YET.
NIKOLAS: SO YOU NEED
INSPIRATION.
WELL, WHERE BETTER TO GET IT
THAN A MOVIE?
ELIZABETH: WHAT YOU CALL
INSPIRATION, I CALL
PROCRASTINATION.
NIKOLAS: AH, COME ON.
ALL WORK AND NO PLAY.
ELIZABETH: YADDY,
YADDY, YADDY.
SO DO I GET TO PICK THE MOVIE?
NIKOLAS: UH --
YEAH, WHICH ONE DID YOU HAVE
IN MIND?
HELENA: WELL, HOW WONDERFUL
TO SEE MY DEAR ONES SMILING.

CHLOE: HAS SOMETHING COME UP?
NED: ABOUT WHAT?
CHLOE: ALAN MARRYING
GERTRUDE.
DID IT NOT GO WELL WHEN ALAN
AND MONICA TOLD EMILY?
NED: NO, EMILY IS ON BOARD.
IN FACT, ACCORDING TO MONICA,
SHE EVEN WANTS TO ACT OUT
BY BREAKING HER CURFEW
AND SPENDING MORE TIME WITH JUAN
TO GIVE THE DIVORCE HER STAMP
OF AUTHENTICITY.
NO, I INVITED YOU TO AN EARLY
DINNER BECAUSE WE'VE BEEN
SPENDING SO MUCH TIME
WITH THE WRONG SPOUSES.
I THINK WE BETTER RAISE
OUR PROFILE AS A HAPPILY MARRIED
COUPLE.
CHLOE: OK.
NED: THIS IS ONLY
FOR APPEARANCES' SAKE.
JAX: TRY IT AND I'LL KILL
YOU.
SORRY TO INTERRUPT.
SO, WHAT ARE WE HAVING HERE?
AN EARLY DINNER?
WELL.
WELL, YEAH, THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR INVITING ME.
I'M REALLY HAPPY THAT I COULD
JOIN YOU.

TONY: THE TEST RESULTS ARE
IN, CAROLINE, AND YOU ARE GOING
TO HAVE A BABY.
BOBBIE: HI.
DON'T BLAME REGINALD.
I HAD TO APPLY A LOT OF PRESSURE
BEFORE HE CRACKED.
WERE YOU EVER GOING TO CALL ME
BACK?
CARLY: I'VE BEEN BUSY.
MICHAEL'S BEEN REALLY FUSSY,
YOU KNOW?
BOBBIE: CARLY, I FOUND OUT.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO HIDE IT
FROM ME.

SONNY: ROY'S COMING BACK
FROM THE ISLAND WITH THE CASINO
PROFITS.
THEY SHOULD BE LANDING ANY
MINUTE.
YOU GOING TO BE THERE TO DEPOSIT
THE CASH?
ALL RIGHT.
GREAT.
THANKS, BENNY.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
SONNY: YEAH?
JOHNNY: YOUR FATHER.
MIKE: THANKS, JOHNNY.
LOOK, JASON'S DISAPPEARED AGAIN.
IS HE HURT?
SONNY: NO, HE'S GONE.
MIKE: BUT HE'S OK?
SONNY: UH --
MIKE: LOOK --
SONNY: I CAN'T REALLY --
MIKE: LOOK, IF HE'S HURT
OR HE NEEDS SOMETHING -- HE'S
BEEN A HELL OF A FRIEND TO ME,
AND I WANT TO HELP.
SONNY: MIKE,
HE'S GONE.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I'M
SAYING?
MIKE: FOR HOW LONG?
SONNY: HE DIDN'T SAY.
MIKE: HE JUST LEFT?
I MEAN, NO GOOD-BYES,
NO WAY TO REACH HIM?
SONNY: THAT'S THE WAY JASON
WANTED IT.
HE HAD HIS REASONS.
ROY: HEY, NICE FLIGHT.
PILOT: I LIKE TO KEEP
MR. CORINTHOS HAPPY.
ROY: YEAH, I KNOW
THE FEELING.
THANKS FOR HELPING ME GET THIS
HERE SAFELY.
PILOT: SURE.
TAKE CARE.
ROY: YEAH.
YOU, TOO.
MAN: U.S. CUSTOMS.
WE'D LIKE TO ASK YOU A FEW
QUESTIONS.

SONNY: I FINALLY --
I FINALLY LEARNED SOMETHING,
MIKE.
THE GREATEST PAIN IN THE WORLD
IS HURTING THE PERSON WHO'S
CLOSET TO YOU.
YOU CAN'T FIX IT.
YOU CAN'T EVEN LOOK AT IT,
SO YOU LEAVE.
AS YOU KNOW.
OR WORSE, THEY LEAVE.
MIKE: NO ONE WAS MORE LOYAL
THAN JASON.
I MEAN, HE WOULD NEVER,
NEVER DESERT YOU
UNLESS YOU SENT HIM AWAY.
I MEAN, DID SOMETHING HAPPEN
BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU?
SONNY: LIKE I SAID,
MIKE, JASON DIDN'T GIVE A LOT
OF EXPLANATION.
HE DID TELL ME TO TELL
YOU WHATEVER NOTE YOU GAVE HIM,
HE RIPPED IT UP, THREW IT AWAY.
WHATEVER YOU OWE HIM, YOU DON'T.
NOW, I GOT A --
I GOT A MEETING WITH A COFFEE
BROKER, AND I'M LATE, SO I NEED
TO GET OUT OF HERE.
MIKE: LOOK, JUST GIVE ME
A CELL PHONE NUMBER.
MAYBE I CAN SMOOTH THINGS OVER.
YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU WERE GONE
AND HE WAS RUNNING THE BIKE
SHOP, SOMETIMES HE'D LISTEN
TO ME.
SONNY: NO, NO, MIKE.
THIS IS NOT WHAT YOU THINK
IT IS.
MIKE: LET ME TRY.
SONNY: THERE'S NOTHING
YOU CAN CHANGE.
MIKE: I CAN TRY, MICHAEL.
SONNY: WE'VE DISCUSSED --
I DON'T WANT TO GET UPSET HERE.
WE'VE DISCUSSED ENOUGH ALREADY.
WHAT I DID, I HAVE TO LIVE WITH.
AND SO DOES EVERYBODY ELSE.
COULD YOU JUST LOCK UP WHEN
YOU LEAVE?

A.J.: ALL RIGHT,
LOOK, THAT'S ENOUGH.
I'M THE C.E.O.
THAT'S MY FINAL OFFER.
IF I DON'T HEAR FROM YOU BY NOON
TOMORROW, I'LL TAKE IT AS A NO.
EDWARD: AND THEN WHAT?
WHAT IF THE UNION DOESN'T CALL
YOU BACK OR THE ANSWER I
NO, HMM?
A.J.: THEY'RE NOT IDIOTS.
IT'S THE MIDDLE OF WINTER.
WE'VE GOT THEM.
EDWARD: YOU KNOW,
ON THE PHONE JUST NOW,
YOU SOUNDED AS THOUGH YOU WERE
COMPETING WITH JASON.
AND THAT ISN'T NECESSARY
BECAUSE JASON'S GONE, AND YOU'VE
WON.
SO ACT LIKE IT.
A.J.: I AM.
EDWARD: THEN LOSE THE CHIP
ON YOUR SHOULDER.
YOU'RE GOING TO TRIP OVER IT
IN BUSINESS.
A.J., IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO START
LIVING YOUR OWN LIFE INSTEAD
OF TRYING TO OUTDO YOUR
BROTHER'S.
A.J.: LOOK, I AM NOT
COMPETING WITH JASON ANY MORE
THAN I'M TRYING TO PLEASE YOU.
YOU KNOW, FOR ONCE, I'M MAKING
CHOICES BASED ON WHAT'S BEST
FOR ME.
NOW, THE UNION'S -- THEY'RE
DRAGGING ITS HEELS.
NOW, MAYBE THEY'RE USED
TO DEALING WITH OTHER PEOPLE
AND PLAYING GAMES, BUT I WON'T
DO IT.
NOT WITH THEM, NOT WITH ANYBODY
ELSE.
EDWARD: OH.
OH, THEN MAY I ASSUME THAT
YOU'VE DECIDED HOW TO DEAL
WITH YOUR WIFE, HMM?
A.J.: AS A MATTER OF FACT,
I HAVE.

CARLY: YOU FOUND OUT WHAT?
BOBBIE: ABOUT JASON.
MONICA TOLD ME.
AND AS MUCH AS I WAS SYMPATHETIC
TO HER, I COULDN'T STOP THINKING
ABOUYOU.
ARE YOU OK?
CARLY: HOW DO I LOOK?
BOBBIE: LIKE YOU HAVEN'T BEEN
SLEEPING.
CARLY: JASON WAS THE ONE
PERSON I COULD ALWAYS GO TO,
YOU KNOW, WHEN I MESSED
EVERYTHING UP.
WHAT AM I GOING TO DO
WITHOUT HIM?
BOBBIE: WHAT HAPPENED?
CARLY: I GUESS I ALWAYS
COUNTED ON HIM TO FORGIVE ME.
WE HAD A CONNECTION,
AND I -- I DESTROYED IT.
BOBBIE: BY DOING WHAT?
CARLY: JUST BEING ME.
I GUESS I PANICKED, YOU KNOW?
I MEAN, I DO THAT, MOM.
I JUST -- I ALWAYS DO.
WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?
WHO AM I -- WHO AM I GOING
TO COUNT ON, AND WHO'S GOING
TO BE THERE FOR ME?
BOBBIE I WILL BE THERE
FOR YOU.
I'LL DO MY BEST.
CARLY: NO OFFENSE.
I DON'T THINK YOU'RE UP
FOR THE JOB.
BOBBIE: CARLY,
WHAT HAPPENED?
CARLY: I BLEW IT.
BIG TIME.

NED: YOU TWO HAVE BEEN
SPENDING SO MUCH TIME
TOGETHER -- IN PUBLIC, I MIGHT
ADD -- THAT I REALLY HAVE
NO CHOICE BUT TO PLAY THE LOVING
HUSBAND TO REMIND EVERYONE THAT
CHLOE AND I ARE STILL HAPPILY
MARRIED.
JAX: WELL, SEE, I'VE NEVER
EQUATED A LOVING HUSBAND
WITH PUBLIC GROPING.
CHLOE: OH, HE'S NOT
GROPING ME.
NED: AND EVEN IF I WERE,
YOU DESERVE IT FOR ALL THE TIMES
YOU'VE KISSED ALEXIS IN FRONT
OF ME.
GOING ALL THE WAY BACK TO THAT
DIP IN THAT LAS VEGAS WEDDING
CHAPEL.
I KNOW IT WASN'T FOR GERTRUDE.
IT WAS FOR ME.
JAX: OH, YEAH, RIGHT.
NED: SO LET ME TELL
YOU SOMETHING.
WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND.
IT'S NOW YOUR TURN TO SUFFER.
CHLOE: WELL, NOW, I DON'T
REALLY SEE WHY ANYONE HAS
TO SUFFER.

NIKOLAS: I'VE WARNED YOU NOT
TO APPROACH ME WHEN I'M
WITH MY FRIENDS OR WHEN I'M
WITH MY LITTLE SISTER.
HELENA: WELL, I THOUGHT
YOU MIGHT HAVE CHANGED YOUR MIND
NOW THAT I'VE BEEN ACQUITTED
OF ALL CHARGES IN YOUR POOR
FIANCEE'S MURDER.
AND NOW, PERHAPS, THE POLICE
WILL RE-EXAMINE YOUR UNCLE'S
CULPABILITY IN THIS MATTER.
HE DID CONFESS, AFTER ALL.
AND YOU KNOW VERY WELL
THE LENGTHS HE WILL GO
TO TO KEEP YOU FROM BEING
WITH ANY WOMAN HE FINDS
UNSUITABLE.
NIKOLAS: YOU WON'T BAIT ME
INTO DISCUSSING ANYTHING
WITH YOU.
HELENA: OH, HOW I LONG
FOR THE DAY WHEN YOU REALIZE WHO
TRULY LOVED YOU FROM THE MOMENT
YOU WERE BORN.
BUT I'LL LEAVE YOU IN
THE MEANTIME TO ENJOY
YOUR EVENING.
AND TO YOU, MY DEAR, I AM MOST
GRATEFUL.
YOU MADE MY GRANDSON SMILE.
STEFAN: IF YOU REALLY WANT
HIM TO SMILE, YOU'LL LEAVE.

HELENA: I'M SURE YOU'RE
UNHAPPY TO FIND NIKOLAS WITH ME.
OR MS. WEBBER.
MY SYMPATHIES, MY DARLING.
YOUR UNCLE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT
TO LAUNCH INTO ONE OF
HIS DIATRIBES ON THE KIND
OF WOMAN WHO IS APPROPRIATE
FOR THE CASSADINE HEIR.
AND DON'T LET HIM INTIMIDATE
YOU, MY DARLING.
IT HIGHLY UNLIKELY THAT
HE WOULD KILL TWO UNSUITABLE
WOMEN IN A ROW.
STEFAN: MY APOLOGIES,
MS. WEBBER.
NIKOLAS: YEAH.
DON'T LISTEN TO ANYTHING
SHE SAYS.
ELIZABETH: OH, DON'T WORRY.
LUCKY TOLD ME ALL ABOUT HER.
LISTEN, I'M GOING TO GO
TO KELLY'S TO GET MY HEAVIER
JACKET.
I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
NIKOLAS: OK.
UH --
I DIDN'T WANT TO GIVE HELENA
THE SATISFACTION OF SIDING
WITH HER, BUT IF YOU ARE HERE
TO LECTURE ME ON SPENDING TIME
WITH ELIZABETH, I DON'T WANT
TO HEAR IT.
STEFAN: NIKOLAS,
AT THE MOMENT, I AM MORE
CONCERNED ABOUT HELENA.
WHAT HAS ALWAYS DRIVEN HER IS
THE CASSADINE FORTUNE.
AND ONCE YOU'RE IN CHARGE AGAIN,
SHE WILL UNDOUBTEDLY MAKE
ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO GET YOU UNDER
HER CONTROL.
NIKOLAS: SHE'LL NEVER
SUCCEED.
STEFAN: THAT WON'T STOP
HER FROM TRYING.
NIKOLAS: WELL, YOU HAVE ANY
IDEA OF WHAT SHE'S PLANNG?

A.J.: MY WIFE'S RECENT
CAMPAIGN FOR CAUSING PROBLEMS
AND MAKING SCENES LIKE
THE E.L.Q. PARTY THE OTHER
NIGHT, WELL, THAT'S CARLY'S WAY
OF FORCING ME TO LET HER GO.
BUT I'M HOPING, NOW THAT JASON'S
GONE, THINGS WILL CHANGE.
EDWARD: A.J., IT CAN'T BE
ABOUT JASON.
YOU GREW UP IN THIS HOUSE
IN COMPETITION WITH
YOUR BROTHER, AND YOU ENDED UP
DRUNK AND FEELING SORRY
FOR YOURSELF.
YOU BECAME EVERYBODY'S VICTIM.
AND IFOU GO BACK INTO THAT,
YOU ARE GOING TO RUIN E.L.Q.
AND I CAN'T LET THAT HAPPEN.
NO.
A.J.: WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF?
I'VE BEEN LIVING WITH CARLY
PUTTING ME IN COMPETITION
WITH JASON SINCE THE DAY
SHE MOVED IN HERE, AND I HAVEN'T
TURNED TO THE BOTTLE YET.
ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, I'M DOING
AMAZINGLY WELL.
HELL, I'M STILL IN THE RACE.
THAT IN ITSELF IS A MIRACLE.
IMAGINE WHAT I COULD DO
IF I COULD PUT YOU DOWN.
OR EVEN BETTER, IF YOU WOULD
JUST START CHEERING FOR ME,
YOU KNOW, INSTEAD OF YELLING
IN MY EAR FOR EVERYONE ELSE
TO HEAR "A.J.'S GOING DOWN
AND HE'S TAKING E.L.Q. WITH
HIM."
EDWARD: NOW, YOU KNOW,
THAT'S THE THING THAT WORRIES ME
THE MOST, A.J.
THAT RIGHT WHEN YOU SHOULD BE
VICTORIOUS, YOU'RE STILL LOOKING
FOR SOMEBODY ELSE TO BLAME.
A.J.: YOU KNOW WHAT?
WE'RE NOT GOING TO AGREE
ON THIS, GRANDFATHER.
WHAT'S YOUR POINT?
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?
YOU WANT ME TO PROMISE THAT I'LL
NEVER HIT THE BOTTLE?
I CAN'T.
SOBRIETY IS ONE DAY AT A TIME.
YOU WANT ME TO CONVINCE YOU THAT
WHAT I FEEL RIGHT NOW IS
VICTORY?
WELL,
I CAN'T DO THAT, EITHER.
I'M SAD.
WHEN I THOUGHT ABOUT MARRIAGE,
I ALWAYS ENVISIONED ONE LIKE
YOU AND GRANDMOTHER HAVE.
SURE, THE OCCASIONAL UPS
AND DOWNS.
BUT ONE THAT WAS ABOUT PATIENCE
AND ADMIRATION AND RESPECT.
AND INSTEAD, I ENDED UP
WITH A MARRIAGE LIKE MY PARENTS.
I MEAN,
CARLY INFURIATES ME.
AND IT'S OBVIOUS THAT I HAVE
THE SAME EFFECT ON HER.
BUT AT THE SAME TIME --
GOD HELP ME --
I WANT HER.
AND ON THE SAME LEVEL,
I THINK SHE WANTS ME.
SEE, WHAT PEOPLE FORGET
IS THAT WE WERE FRIENDS.
AND NOW MAYBE WE CAN BE THAT
AGAIN.
AT LEAST IT'S A START, YOU KNOW?
EDWARD: WELL, HAVING
YOUR PARENTS' MARRIAGE
AS A MODEL IS NOT ALL BAD.
ECCENTRIC, PERHAPS.
BUT MAYBE LIKE THEM
YOU CAN FIND YOUR WAY, HMM?
I HAPPEN TO THINK YOU CAN.
A.J.: THAT WAS SORT
OF A CHEER.
I THINK WE CAN, TOO.
SOMEONE HAS TO MAKE THE FIRST
STEP, AND IT WON'T BE CARLY, SO
IT'LL HAVE TO BE ME.
AND THE TIME IS NOW.

BOBBIE: CARLY, I CAN'T HELP
YOU FIX A PROBLEM IF I DON'T
KNOW WHAT IT IS.
CARLY: YOU KNOW WHAT?
THAT'S WHERE I KEEP MAKING
MY MISTAKE -- IN LOOKING
TO OTHER PEOPLE TO SOLVE
MY PROBLEMS FOR ME.
IT'S LIKE, YOU KNOW, IT WASN'T
FAIR OF ME TO DUMP ALL MY JUNK
ON JASON.
AND I'M NOT GOING TO DO THE SAME
THING WITH YOU AND WATCH
YOU BAIL ON ME.
BOBBIE: I WOULDN'T DO THAT.
CARLY: WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT?
JASON SAID HE WASN'T GOING
ANYWHERE, EITHER.
BOBBIE: WHAT HAPPENED
WITH JASON?
CARLY: I GUESS
HE COULDN'T TAKE
SOMETHING ANYMORE.
AND WHAT TIMING, HUH?
BECAUSE I REALLY, REALLY NEED
HIM RIGHT NOW.
BUT,
HEY, YOU KNOW, MAYBE THIS WILL
TURN OUT TO BE ONE OF THOSE
GREAT LEARNING EXPERIENCES,
YOU KNOW?
WHAT DOES NOT KILL YOU MAKES
YOU STRONGER.
ANYWAY, I'M GOING TO JUST -- I'M
GOING TO DEAL WITH THIS
ON MY OWN.

CHLOE: THANK YOU.
JAX: NOW HURRY UP AND EAT.
YOU CAN EVEN TAKE IT TO GO.
THEY DO A NICE LITTLE WRAPPING
HERE.
NED: I NEVER CEASE TO BE
SURPRISED AT WHAT YOU DON'T
KNOW, JAX.
JA WHAT?
NED: YOU SEE, IT'S MUCH
HEALTHIER TO EAT SLOWLY.
AND BESIDES, MY WIFE AND I HAVE
A LOT OF L&B BUSINESS
TO DISCUSS.
IN FACT, MAYBE TONIGHT'S NOT
A GOOD NIGHT FOR THE TWO
OF YOU TO GET TOGETHER.
JAX: NO, NO, NO, NO.
YOUR WIFE IS NOT WORKING
TONIGHT.
NED: UNTIL GERTRUDE MARRIES
ALAN, WE HAVE TO KEEP UP
OUR APPEARANCES.
CHLOE: OK.
NOW, YOU HAVE REALLY BEEN
A SPECTACULAR HUSBAND,
BUT I MUST -- I MUST INSIST THAT
YOU STOP TORMENTING JAX.
NED: OH, NO, NO, NO, NO.
HE'S MUCH TOUGHER THAN HE LOOKS.
JAX: OH, YOU CAN COUNT
ON THAT.
AND ALSO THAT I'LL GET
MY REVENGE WHEN YOU LEAST
EXPECT IT.

BOBBIE: CARLY, I KNOW YOU.
AND I CAN TELL WHEN YOU'RE
PSYCHING YOURSELF UP TO DO
SOMETHING.
CARLY: I'M JUST TAKING STOCK,
YOU KNOW?
I HAVE TO FIND A WAY TO MAKE
MY LIFE WORK AND TO DO WHAT'S
BEST FOR MY CHILD.

ROY: SO WHAT'S GOING ON,
GUYS?
AGENT #1: HAVE A SEAT, ROY.
AGENT #2: WHERE'D YOU JUST
FLY IN FROM?
ROY: FLORIDA.
AGENT #2: BEFORE THAT.
ROY: NO PLACE.
I WENT TO FLORIDA.
I CAME BACK.
AGENT #1: WHAT'S
IN THE BRIEFCASE?
ROY: PAPERWORK.
AGENT #1: THEN YOU WON'T MIND
OPENING IT.
ROY: SHOULD I CALL A LAWYER?
AM I IN SOME KIND OF TROUBLE?
AGENT #2: NOT IF YOU'VE GOT
PAPERWORK IN THERE.
ROY: YOU KNOW, YOU GUYS --
ROY: WELL, THAT'S WEIRD.
I USE MY MOM'S BIRTHDAY
FOR THE COMBINATION.
AGENT #1: LET ME DO IT.
THESE THINGS CAN BE TRICKY.
AGENT #1: MY, MY.
INTERESTING PAPERWORK.
AGENT #2: ABOUT A MILLION.
AGENT #1: ROY, LOOKS LIKE
YOU'RE IN A LOT OF TROUBLE --
UNLESS YOU CAN GIVE US
A VERIFIABLE REASON WHY YOU'RE
TRANSPORTING THIS KIND OF MONEY.

NIKOLAS: LET ME ASK THIS.
IF I FIGURE OUT WHAT HELENA'S
PLANNING FIRST, DO YOU WANT ME
TO TELL YOU?
STEFAN: ABSOLUTELY.
NIKOLAS: OK.
WILL THAT GO BOTH WAYS?
STEFAN: I WON'T ENDANGER YOU,
NIKOLAS.
NIKOLAS: WELL, I'M NOT WHO
HELENA'S GOING TO HURT.
YOU'RE THE ONE THAT WE SHOULD BE
WORRIED ABOUT.
STEFAN: SHE WON'T DO ANYTHING
OBVIOUS TO EITHER ONE OF US.
HER PATTERN IS TO USE A TOOL --
LIKE SHE DID WITH KATHERINE --
TO DRIVE A WEDGE BETWEEN US.
NIKOLAS: WHICH IS WHAT
SHE JUST TRIED WITH ELIZABETH.
AND I KNOW WHAT SHE'S DOING.
BUT THERE IS SOME TRUTH IN WHAT
SHE SAID.
YOU DON'T APPROVE OF
MY RELATIONSHIP WITH ELIZABETH.
STEFAN: I DON'T APPROVE
OF YOU MAKING SCENES LIKE
YOU DID AT THE HOSPITAL
CHRISTMAS PARTY, NO.
NIKOLAS: OK, YOU'RE RIGHT.
IT WAS EMBARRASSING.
I APOLOGIZE.
OK, BUT THAT PARTICULAR
SITUATION HAS REMEDIED ITSELF
SINCE JASON MORGAN LEFT TOWN.
STEFAN: NIKOLAS, IT IS NOT
THAT SIMPLE.
NIKOLAS: IT IS THAT SIMPLE.
OK, THE ONLY PROBLEMS THAT
WE HAVE NOW ARE WHEN YOU TRY
TO CONTROL ME FOR WHAT
YOU CONVINCE YOURSELF IS
FOR MY OWN GOOD.
I AM AN ADULT NOW.
YOU HAVE TO LET ME BE ONE.
OK, YOU'VE GOT TO ALLOW ME
TO MAKE MISTAKES AND TAKE RISKS
AND DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY THAN
YOU DID.

JAX: THANKS.
WHAT?
OH, COME ON.
I'M NOT GOING TO START ANYTHING
WITH SONNY.
ALTHOUGH, ACTUALLY, ON SECOND
THOUGHT, PERHAPS IT IS BEST
IF WE PAID THE BILL AND LEFT.
NED: NORMAN?
WHEN YOU HAVE A CHANCE,
CAN YOU BRING US THE DESSERT
MENU?
NORMAN: CERTAINLY.
NED: NO RUSH.
JAX: OH --
OH, THAT --
CHLOE: I HAVE TO GO AND CALL
MILAN.
I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
NED: MAN, OH, MAN.
YOU'VE GOT IT BAD.
JAX: YES.
NOT ONLY THAT, BUT
IT'S GETTING HARDER AND HARDER
TO HIDE IT.

BOBBIE: DON'T LOOK TO SONNY
TO HELP.
CARLY: YOU GOT THAT RIGHT.
BOBBIE: IF HE DOES KNOW WHERE
JASON IS, HE'S NOT GOING TO TELL
YOU.
CARLY: ACTUALLY, I WASN'T
GOING TO ASK.
THANKS FOR LISTENING, MOM.
I GOT TO GO.
I GOT TO TAKE CARE OF MY BABY.
BOBBIE: HONEY, PLEASE
DON'T GO.
DON'T.
CARLY: IT'S REALLY CE
TO KNOW THAT SOMEBODY STILL
WORRIES ABOUT ME.
BUT I HAVE TO.
BOBBIE: I NOT ONLY WORRY
ABOUT YOU, I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH.
CARLY: OH.
SORRY.
BOBBIE: HI, SONNY.
SONNY: HEY, BOBBIE.
GOOD TO SEE YOU.
IF YOUR DAUGHTER SENT YOU OVER
HERE TO GET ME TO TELL YOU WHERE
JASON IS, I DON'T KNOW.
BOBBIE: I'M CALLING
IN A FAVOR.
SONNY: JASON MADE IT VERY
CLEAR HE DOESN'T WANT TO BE
FOUND.
I GOT TO RESPECT THAT.
AND AS FAR AS A FAVOR, YOU KNOW,
HEY, I OWE JASON MORE THAN I OWE
ANYBODY.
BOBBIE: YOU OWE ME FOR NOT
GIVING ME A HEADS UP ABOUT
JERRY.
AND THIS ISN'T ABOUT JASON.
IT'S ABOUT ROY DiLUCCA.
IS HE WORKING FOR YOU?

AGENT #1: SOMEONE'S GOT
YOU IN A LOT OF TROUBLE, ROY.
ROY: I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING
ABOUT THIS CASH.
MY BRIEFCASE MUST HAVE GOTTEN
SWITCHED WITH SOMEBODY ELSE'S.
AGENT #1: I'LL GIVE YOU THAT.
I AGREE.
IT'S NOT YOUR BRIEFCASE
OR YOUR MONEY.
IT BELONGS TO SONNY CORINTHOS.
SEE, SONNY SENT YOU DOWN
TO HIS OFFSHORE CASINO TO DO
A SHUTTLE RUN.
NOW, KNOWING YOUR BOSS, HE KNOWS
ABOUT YOUR TIME INSIDE AND THAT
HAVING YOU MOVE THIS MUCH MONEY
IS A VIOLATION OF U.S. CUSTOMS
STATUTES.
AGENT #2: WHAT MY PARTNER'S
SAYING IS SONNY DOESN'T CARE
ABOUT YOU.
ROY: NO, NO, NO.
SONNY HAS NOTHING TO DO
WITH THIS.
I OBVIOUSLY PICKED UP THIS
BRIEFCASE BY MISTAKE.
AND IF I HAD TO BET, I'D BET
THAT WHOEVER IT BELONGS TO IS
FEELING REALLY UNHAPPY RIGHT
NOW.
AGENT #1: YEAH.
YOU'RE THE ONE THAT'S GOING
TO BE UNHAPPY, DiLUCCA,
BECAUSE IF YOU CAN'T FIND
A BETTER EXCUSE FOR HAVING THIS
MONEY, IF YOU'RE NOT GOING
TO ADMIT IT BELONGS TO SONNY
CORINTHOS, YOU'RE GOING TO FIND
YOURSELF BACK IN JAIL FOR A VERY
LONG TIME.

AGENT #1: WE'RE GIVING
YOU A CHANCE HERE, ROY.
THIS IS YOUR ONE SHOT.
TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT.
YOU WORK FOR SONNY CORINTHOS.
ROY: YES.
YES, I DO.
I WORK IN HIS COFFEE WAREHOUSE.
AND I'M ON VACATION RIGHT NOW,
AND I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I CAME
BY THIS BRIEFCASE.
AGENT #2: BIG MISTAKE.
TAKING US FOR IDIOTS, DiLUCCA?
WE'VE BEEN TRACKING YOU.
EXPLAIN HOW A DOCK WORKER
AT A COFFEE WAREHOUSE CAN AFFORD
TO FLY IN A PRIVATE CHARTER.
ROY: NOT THAT I HAVE
TO EXPLAIN ANYTHING TO YOU,
BUT THE FACT IS I'VE BEEN INSIDE
FOR 20 YEARS, AND I'M SORT
OF INTO SAVORING MY FREEDOM.
I SAVED UP.
AGENT #1: WE GOT PICTURES
OF YOU PICKING UP THE MONEY
FROM SONNY'S CASINO MANAGER.
WE HAVE YOU ON RADAR.
HARD EVIDENCE.
HOPE YOU REALLY SAVORED
YOUR FREEDOM, ROY, BECAUSE
YOU'RE GOING BACK INSIDE.
ROY: YOU KNOW, I HAVE NO IDEA
WHAT YOU THINK YOU HAVE,
BUT YOU'RE WRONG.
AGENT #1: JOHN?
AGENT #1: OK.
WE GOT A ONE-TIME-ONLY DEAL
TO OFFER.
YOU'LL HELP US OUT,
WE'LL HELP YOU OUT.
CORINTHOS WILL NEVER KNOW.

SONNY: ABSOLUTELY
ROY WORKS FOR ME.
HE'S ONE OF MY BEST EMPLOYEES
AT THE WAREHOUSE.
BOBBIE: SONNY, THAT'S NOT
WHAT I MEAN, AND YOU KNOW IT.
SONNY: WELL, I -- YOU KNOW,
THAT'S REALLY ALL I CAN SAY
RIGHT NOW, BOBE.
YOU KNOW, I HATE TO -- I'VE GOT
TO BE SOMEWHERE, AND I'M
LATE, SO --
BOBBIE: I COULD HAVE EASILY
CALLED MAC SCORPIO WHEN
I TREATED JASON'S GUNSHOT WOUND.
LEGALLY I WAS BOUND TO DO THAT.
BUT I DIDN'T.
SO THE WAY I SEE IT,
YOU OWE ME TWICE NOW.
ROY DiLUCCA HAS JUST BEEN
RELEASED FROM PRISON AFTER
LOSING TWO DECADES.
SHORT CUTS ARE GOING TO LOOK
VERY GOOD TO HIM.
AND IF YOU OFFER HIM CERTAIN
OPPORTUNITIES, IN HIS POSITION,
IT'S GOING TO BE VERY HARD
TO RESIST.
PLEASE DON'T DO TO HIM WHAT
YOU DID TO JASON.
DON'T LEAVE HIM WITH NO CHOICE
BUT TO DISAPPEAR.
IF HE'S NOT DOING SIDELINE WORK
FOR YOU ALREADY, YOU DON'T HAVE
TO CUT HIM IN.
AND IF HE IS, YOU CAN CUT HIM
OUT.
SONNY: ISN'T THIS SOMETHING
YOU SHOULD BE DISCUSSING
WITH ROY YOURSELF?
I MEAN --
BOBBIE: HOW CAN YOU BE
SO INCREDIBLY GENEROUS IN SOME
WAYS AND SO SELFISH IN OTHERS?
HOW MANY PEOPLE WOULD HAVE BEEN
BETTER OFF IF YOU'D NEVER LET
THEM GET INVOLVED WITH YOU?
SONNY: QUITE A FEW.

NED: WHEN I FIRST LEFT
E.L.Q., I GOT SOME OUT-OF-TOWN
OFFERS.
AND THEY FORCED ME AND ALEXIS
TO AT LEAST DANCE AROUND
THE TOPIC OF MARRIAGE.
BUT WE BOTH AGREED THAT
WE WEREN'T READY.
SO THEN WHEN THIS MARRIAGE
OF CONVENIENCE CAME UP,
WELL, THAT WAS -- IT MADE ME
ABLE TO SORT OF PUT OFF DEALING
WITH HOW I FEEL ABOUT ALEXIS.
I MEAN, THIS FAKE MARRIAGE
BOUGHT ME SOME TIME.
JAX: SO HAVE YOU COME UP
WITH ANY CONCLUSIONS?
NED: I AM TERRIFIED
ABOUT HAVING MY HEART BROKEN
LIKE I HAD WITH LOIS.
BUT ALEXIS ISN'T LOIS.
SO, I WANT TO TAKE THAT CHANCE.
I THINK.
JAX: YEAH.
YOU KNOW, WHEN WE WENT TO VEGAS,
I WAS SERIOUSLY TOYING
WITH THE IDEA OF MARRYING CHLOE.
NOT BECAUSE OF HOW I FELT ABOUT
HER.
BUT -- I MEAN, THERE WAS
AN OBVIOUS ATTRACTION THERE.
BUT I THINK IT'S LIKE YOU SAID.
SUBCONSCIOUSLY I WAS RUNNING
AWAY FROM ANYTHING THAT WAS
REAL.
AND MARRYING A COMPLETE STRANGER
SEEMED LIKE AN EXCELLENT WAY
TO HAVE A DATE FOR A YEAR.
AND ALSO STOP EVERYONE
FROM WONDERING WHO WAS GOING
TO REPLACE BRENDA.
I MEAN, AFTER BRENDA DIED,
I ASSUMED THAT I WOULD NEVER
CARE THIS MUCH ABOUT ANYONE
AGAIN.
AND IF I'VE LEARNED ANYTHING
FROM HER DEATH, IT'S THAT
I DON'T WANT TO WASTE A MOMENT
OF MY LIFE.
CHLOE: EXCUSE ME.
DID I MISS ANYTHING?

CARLY: I WAS AT THE GRILL
WITH BOBBIE.
YOU CAN ACTUALLY CALL
THE MAITRE D' AND CHECK
IF YOU LIKE.
A.J.: I DIDN'T ASK.
CARLY: I DIDN'T GIVE
YOU A CHANCE, DID I?
A.J.: CARLY, I'M ONLY WAITING
HERE BECAUSE YOU'RE MY WIFE,
THE ROADS ARE ICING UP OUT
THERE, AND I JUST WANTED TO MAKE
SURE YOU MADE IT HOME SAFE.
CARLY: WELL, HERE I AM.
A.J.: YES, YOU ARE.
SO HOW'S BOBBIE?
CARLY: SHE'S ALL RIGHT.
A.J.: I'M NOT GOING TO ASK
IF SHE'S HEARD FROM JERRY,
BUT IS SHE REALLY OK?
SHE ALL RIGHT?
CARLY: YEAH.
THANKS.
A.J.: SO, HOW WAS YOUR DAY?
CARLY: ACTUALLY, YOU KNOW
WHAT?
I'VE HAD BETTER.
A.J.: YEAH, ME, TOO.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
IT MADE ME THINK.
ANYWAY, I WAS THINKING ABOUT
WHAT I COULD DO TO IMPROVE
OUR SITUATION.
AND THE FIRST THOUGHT I HAD
WAS -- WELL, TO DECLARE
A CEASEFIRE ON THIS LITTLE WAR
OF OURS.
COME ON, IT'S NOT DOING EITHER
OF US ANY GOOD.
IT ONLY HURTS US.
IT'S NOT GOOD FOR MICHAEL.
SO --
SO WHAT DO YOU SAY?
COULD I INTEREST YOU IN A TRUCE?
CARLY: DEFINE TRUCE.
A.J.: WELL, WE --
YOU KNOW, WE FIND A -- WE MAKE
A RENEWED EFFORT TO TREAT EACH
OTHER WITH RESPECT,
TRY TO ACT LIKE ADULTS.
WHAT?
CARLY: YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW
HAPPY I AM TO HEAR YOU SAY THAT.

HELENA: I'M SO PLEASED TO SEE
LUCKY SPENCER'S MAKING SUCH
EXCELLENT PROGRESS.
AND AT LAST I'M FREE TO COME
VISIT HIM IN PERSON.
YES.
YES, I'LL BE READY TO LEAVE
SHORTLY.
AND I DO LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING
LUCKY FACE TO FACE.

ELIZABETH: HEY.
I'M SORRY.
TAMMY COULDN'T FIND THE KEYS
TO THE BACK DOOR.
NIKOLAS: OH, IT'S NOT SO BAD.
ONCE YOU LOSE THE FEELING
IN YOUR LEGS, YOU CAN HARDLY
NOTICE THE COLD.
WHAT IS THAT?
ELIZABETH: OH, MY GOD.
MY BRACELET.
THE BRACELET LUCKY GAVE ME.
I HAVE TO FIND IT.
NIKOLAS: WAIT, WAIT, WAIT.
ELIZABETH: OH -- THAT'S IT.
THAT'S IT.
OH, MAN.
THE CLASP BROKE.
NIKOLAS: WELL, WE CAN --
WE CAN FIX THAT.
ELIZABETH: I DON'T KNOW WHAT
I'D HAVE DONE IF I LOST THIS.
NIKOLAS: WELL, HAVE
YOU DECIDED WHAT MOVIE YOU WANT
TO SEE?
ELIZABH: OH, WELL,
SOMETHING UPBEAT, SOMETHING
WHERE JUST WHEN YOU THINK ALL
HOPE IS LOST, LOVE TRIUMPHS
AFTER ALL.

JAX: WELL, I MEAN,
JASON WOULDN'T JUST LEAVE
WITHOUT A REASON.
NED: I KNOW.
BUT NO ONE'S TELLING ME WHAT
IT IS.
NED: ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT.
YOU KNOW, SUDDENLY, I GOT THIS
CRAVING FOR THE GRILL'S SPECIAL
RESERVE PORT.
IF YOU'LL EXCUSE ME.
NED: IT SHOULD TAKE
THE BARTENDER AT LEAST
15 MINUTES TO FIND IT.
CHLOE: MY HUSBAND IS
SO THOUGHTFUL.
JAX: YOUR HUSBAND KISSES
YOU TOO MUCH.
BESIDES, WHAT'S 15 MINUTES ALONE
WHEN WE COULD GO UPSTAIRS
AND HAVE AN ENTIRE EVENING
TOGETHER?
SEE, THIS IS JUST ANOTHER WAY
FOR HIM TO TORMENT ME.
WE SHOULD JUST GO UPSTAIRS.
CHLOE: NO.
EDWARD'S WAIT STAFF WOULD CATCH
US IMMEDIATELY, EVEN BEFORE
WE GOT ON THE ELEVATOR.
EVEN IF WE TOOK SEPARATE
ELEVATORS --
JAX: SEE, THIS IS MY POINT.
SEE, THIS IS MY POINT EXACTLY.
NED KNEW THAT I'D BE STUCK HERE
WITH YOU, SITTING OPPOSITE YOU,
WHEN ALL I WANT TO DO IS HOLD
YOU.
CHLOE: EVERY TIME I LOOK
AT YOU, ALL I CAN SEE IS THE TWO
OF US TOGETHER, SO I DON'T MIND
BECAUSE I KNOW THAT'S GOING
TO BE HAPPENING AGAIN VERY SOON.
JAX: YEAH.
IN THE MEANTIME, WE'LL JUST HAVE
TO BE CREATIVE.
CARLY: JASE.
I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M IN THIS
SITUATION AGAIN.
I DON'T EVEN HAVE YOU HERE
TO TELL PEOPLE YOUR MY BABY'S
FATHER.
CERTAINLY CAN'T TELL SONNY IT'S
HIS, SO WHAT DOES THAT LEAVE?
LEAVES A.J.
GUESS I'M JUST GOING TO HAVE
TO MAKE HIM THINK IT'S HIS.
DON'T HAVE A CHOICE.
NOT REALLY.

CARLY: HEY!
A.J.: HEY.
CARLY: LOVE THIS PICTURE
OF MICHAEL.
GOD.
SO CUTE.
HE LOOKS LIKE HE'S ABOUT
TO LAUGH OR SOMETHING,
DOESN'T HE?
A.J.: YEAH.
CARLY: DID YOU GET THAT FAX?
A.J.: I DID.
CARLY: YEAH?
A.J.: YEP, I DID.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
IT GAVE ME A CHANCE TO THINK
ABOUT WHAT YOU SAID -- NOT JUST
ABOUT WANTING A TRUCE, BUT ABOUT
HAPPY -- HOW HAPPY YOU WOULD BE.
I MEAN, I HAVE TO ADMIT I'M
SURPRISED.
CARLY: WELL, A.J.,
THINGS HAVE CHANGED FOR BOTH
OF US.
A.J.: YOU MEAN JASON?
CARLY: YEAH, JASON.
BUT, YOU KNOW, I MEAN, WE BOTH
MADE MISTAKES, YOU KNOW,
WHERE JASON'S CONCERNED.
WE BOTH HAVE THESE LITTLE
TEMPERS.
A.J.: THAT'S TRUE.
THAT IS TRUE.
BUT LIKE I SAID, I AM WILLING
TO DO WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE
THINGS BETTER BETWEEN US.
I AM.
CARLY: REALLY?
A.J.: YEAH.
CARLY: WHATEVER IT TAKES?
A.J.: NOW, CARLY --
NO TRICKS, NO GAMES.
CARLY: I'M NOT PLAYING GAMES.
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
A.J.: I WANT TO GO UPSTAIRS.
YOU WANT TO GO UPSTAIRS?
CARLY: OH.
A.J.: REALLY?

ROY: LOOK, I APPRECIATE
YOU OFFERING ME A DEAL.
I REALLY DO.
BUT I CAN'T TELL YOU SOMETHING
I DON'T KNOW.
IT ISN'T MY BRIEFCASE.
YOU KNOW, ALL I CAN THINK IS
THAT SOMEBODY PULLED A SWITCH
ON ME.
AT THIS POINT, IT'S LOOKING LIKE
IT MIGHT BE YOU.
AGENT #2: YOU WANT TO SELL
THAT TO A JUDGE AND JURY,
DiLUCCA?
YOU'RE AN EX-CON.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE STATS ARE
ON EX-CONS RETURNING
TO THEIR OLD LINE OF WORK SIX
MONTHS AFTER THEY GET OUT
OF PRISON?
AGENT #1: LOOK, WE KNOW
YOU'RE JUST THE MULE.
WE ARREST YOU, TO YOU,
IT'S GOING BACK INSIDE.
TO SONNY, NOTHING.
GIVE US SONNY CORINTHOS.
GIVE US SOMETHING WE DON'T HAVE.
IF IT CHECKS OUT,
WE'LL MAKE THIS GO AWAY.
ROY: YOU GUYS CAN'T IMAGINE
HOW MUCH I HATED PRISON.
MADE A PROMISE TO MYSELF --
NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENED,
I WASN'T GOING BACK.
AGENT #1: SONNY'D ROLL
ON YOU IN A SECOND,
AND YOU KNOW IT.
AGENT #2: JUST TELL US
THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS MONEY.
ROY: OK.
I'M GOING TO TELL YOU EXACTLY
WHAT I KNOW.
YOU ALREADY KNOW IT ISN'T MINE.
I'M CARRYING IT.
EVEN THOUGH I CAN'T SAY
HOW OR WHY.
BUT NONE OF IT --
THE MONEY OR THE TRIP --
HAS ANYTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO
WITH SONNY CORINTHOS.
SONNY: HOW YOU DOING, ROY?

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

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

MAC: FAISON KEPT THEM BOTH
LOCKED UP FOR A WHILE.
LAURA: LUKE AND FELICIA?

STEFAN: WHERE IS MOTHER OFF
TO, ANYWAY?
ANDREAS: I'M LOYAL
TO MRS. CASSADINE, NOT YOU.

A.J.: ARE YOU MAKING YOURSELF
DO THIS?

SONNY: YOU PASSED THE TEST.
CONGRATULATIONS.
