ALEXIS: HEY, STEFAN,
IT'S ALEXIS.
LISTEN, ABOUT THAT LEGAL MATTER
WE TALKED ABOUT, I HAVE SOME
INFORMATION.
YOU'LL LET ME KNOW IF YOU COME
UP WITH ANYTHING?
AND CALL ME BACK AS SOON
AS YOU CAN.
THANKS.
WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? HI.
NED: WE TOOK THE LONG WAY
HOME.
CHLOE: I ASKED THEM TO DRIVE
ME OUT OF TOWN FOR A LITTLE
WHILE.
I WANTED TO JUST BE OUTSIDE
AND LISTEN TO THE STILLNESS.
I'M SO SORRY.
ALEXIS: DON'T BE SORRY
AT ALL.
IT'S YOUR HOMECOMING.
CHLOE: OH, THANK YOU.
ALEXIS: YOU DO IT ANY WAY
YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE.
CHLOE: OK.
WELL, AS LONG AS I'M HERE,
WE MIGHT AS WELL GIVE THIS
A SHOT.
WILL YOU JUST TELL ME WHERE I AM
IN THE ROOM?
AND I'M GOING TO TRY TO MAKE IT
TO THE COUCH BY MYSELF.
JAX: OK.
UM, YOU'RE STANDING RIGHT
IN FRONT OF THE FIRST
COUCH AND --
ALEXIS: AND THERE'S A TABLE
RIGHT HERE, TOO.
CHLOE: OK.
JAX: AND THEN MY OFFICE TABLE
IS JUST TO YOUR RIGHT.
AND I AM RIGHT, RIGHT HERE.
CHLOE: ALL RIGHT.
NED: RIGHT, DESK.
CHLOE: OK, AND THE TABLES ARE
BEHIND BOTH COUCHES.
OH, OH, YES.
I LIKE THIS.
I LIKE THIS PURSE.
JAX: YOU'RE DOING GOOD.
CHLOE: OH, MAKE IT TOUGH
FOR ME.
YOU'RE AT THE FAR COUCH.
JAX: DON'T FORGET THERE'S
A COFFEE TABLE IN BETWEEN.
CHLOE: OK.
OH.
JAX: HEY.
CHLOE: HI.
JAX: WELCOME HOME.
CHLOE: I MADE IT.

BARTENDER: THANKS.
BELLMAN: MRS. ASHTON ARRIVED
JUST A MINUTE AGO WITH
HER HUSBAND AND MR. JACKS.
ALL THREE OF THEM WENT TO JACKS'
PENTHOUSE.
GERTRUDE THANK YOU.
[GERTRUDE LAUGHS TO HERSELF]
GERTRUDE: HMM.

HELENA: HOW ARE THINGS GOING?
MAN: EVERYTHING'S QUIET.
LUCKY'S BEEN EXTREMELY
COOPERATIVE.
HELENA: GOOD.
ARE YOU READY FOR LATER?
EXCELLENT.

LUKE: NOVA SCOA.
THE MINUTE LAURA SAID THAT
STEFAN HAD MADE A BUSINESS TRIP
TO NOVA SCOTIA, IT ALL BECAME
CLEAR.
THE FINANCIAL RECORDS ALL BECAME
CLEAR.
AND THAT MONEY TRAIL
IS GOING TO LEAD US
RIGHT ABOUT HERE.
FELICIA: THERE'S NO TOWN.
LUKE: NO.
THERIS NO TOWN, BUT THERE'S
AN ESTATE THERE, A VERY LARGE
ESTATE WHICH, COINCIDENTALLY,
CHANGED HANDS JUST THIS YEAR.
IT'S GOT A LOT OF GROUNDS.
IT'S GOT
TIGHT SECURITY, PROBABLY.
FELICIA: OH, YEAH.
PERFECT FOR KEEPING LUCKY
PRISONER.
LUKE: YEAH, YEAH.
THAT'S IT.
SO NOW ALL WE GOT TO DO IS
FIND HIM.
GET HIM OUT.
AND BRING HIM HOME.

BOBBIE: AH.
DARN.
LAURA: HEY, BOBBIE.
BOBBIE: OH, HI.
LAURA: SOMETHING WRONG?
BOBBIE: YEAH, WELL,
ACTUALLY, I NEED LUKE'S
SIGNATURE ON A TAX FORM.
I -- I DON'T SUPPOSE
MY WANDERING BROTHER HAS CHECKED
IN WITH YOU AND LULU LATELY,
GIVEN SOME HINT AS TO WHEN
HE MIGHT ACTUALLY COME HOME?
LAURA: WELL, AS A MATTER
OF FACT, I HAVE HEARD FROM HIM.
MAY I?
BOBBIE: SURE.
LAURA: THANKS.
BOBBIE: DID HE HAPPEN
TO MENTION WHERE HE WAS OR WHEN
HE WAS COMING BACK?
LAURA: NO, HE DIDN'T.
BUT, WELL, IF YOUR FRIEND
FELICIA CALLS YOU, YOU COULD
ALWAYS ASK HER, BECAUSE LUKE
AND FELICIA ARE TOGETHER.

SONNY: IS THAT WHAT YOU DO
ALL DAY?
THINK OF NEW WAYS TO SPEND
THE QUARTERMAINES' MONEY?
CARLY: ACTUALLY, I'M LOOKING
FOR THINGS FOR THE NEW BABY.
SONNY: OH.
CARLY: WHO THE HELL LET
YOU IN HERE?
SONNY: OH, I JUST WALKED IN.
NO ONE'S GOING TO STOP ME.
AND AS FOR THAT, MY BABY ISN'T
TAKING A DIME FROM THE
QUARTERMAINES.
I WILL PROVIDE THE BABY
WITH WHATEVER IT NEEDS.
CARLY: YOU KNOW WHAT?
YOUR ARROGANCE IS SO
UNBELIEVABLE.
ALL YOU DID WAS GET ME PREGNANT,
SONNY.
I'M MARRIED TO SOMEBODY ELSE,
YOU KNOW?
AND I HAVE EVERY INTENTION
OF RAISING THIS CHILD IN THIS
HOUSE AS A QUARTERMAINE.
SO YOU DON'T GET A VOTE.
SONNY: WRONG.

SONNY: I THOUGHT YOU HATED
THE QUARTERMAINES, THAT
YOU WOULD DO ANYTHING TO BREAK
FREE OF THEM.
CARLY: THERE'S WORSE PEOPLE
IN THE WORLD.
SONNY: I KNOW.
I'M LOOKING AT ONE.
YOU'VE USED MICHAEL BEFORE
HE WAS BORN.
YOU'RE NOT GOING TO DO THAT
WITH MY CHILD.
I WILL SEE TO IT THAT
MY DAUGHTER OR SON IS SECURE
AND LOVED.
CARLY: WHY DON'T YOU SAVE
THE ACT, OK, FOR SOMEBODY WHO
BUYS IT.
YOU'RE NOT NOBLE.
I KNOW WHO YOU ARE.
AND I KNOW WHAT YOU WANT.
THE ONLY REASON YOU WANT THIS
BABY IS BECAUSE YOU WANT
TO PUNISH ME.
SONNY: OH, IT'S ALL ABOUT
YOU, ISN'T IT?
IT'S NOT THIS BABY'S FAULT THAT
WE WERE SELFISH AND
SELF-DESTRUCTIVE, THAT WE SLEPT
WITH EACH OTHER WITHOUT
PROTECTION.
WE DIDN'T CARE THAT WE WERE
BETRAYING OUR BEST FRIEND.
BUT THIS BABY HAS A RIGHT TO BE
LOVED AND CARED FOR REGARDLESS
OF HOW IT'S CONCEIVED.
AND IF THERE'S ANY SMALL PART
OF YOU THAT'S HONEST AND CARES
FOR THE CHILD BEFORE YOURSELF,
YOU'LL ADMIT THAT I'M RIGHT.
THIS BABY DOESN'T BELONG IN THIS
HOUSE WITH THESE PEOPLE.
EDWARD: CORINTHOS,
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING
HERE?
SONNY: OH.
I'M JUST VISITING THE MOTHER
OF MY CHILD.
EDWARD: I'M SOY TO HEAR
THAT BECAUSE I THOUGHT I'D MADE
YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IT'S BEST
THAT THIS CHILD NEVER KNOWS YOU.
SONNY: OH, BEST FOR
YOU AND THE QUARTERMAINES MAYBE,
BUT NOT ME.
I'LL BE BACK -- SOON.
EDWARD: NO, YOU WON'T,
EVEN IF I HAVE TO GET
A RESTRAINING ORDER TO KEEP
YOU AWAY FROM THIS POOR WOMAN.
SONNY: LET ME TELL
YOU SOMETHING, MR. QUARTERMAINE.
YOU GET IN MY WAY, YOU'RE GOING
TO BE LOOKING AT MORE TROUBLE
THAN YOU CAN HANDLE.

BOBBIE: DID LUKE TELL
YOU HE WAS WITH FELICIA?
LAURA: HE DIDN'T HAVE TO.
HE VANISHED AT THE SAME MOMENT
SHE WENT OFF ON ANOTHER ONE
OF HER LITTLE RESEARCH TRIPS.
YOU KNOW, IT DOESN'T TAKE
A GENIUS TO FIGURE THIS PATTERN
OUT.
I FEEL BADLY FOR MAC.
BOBBIE: YOU WENT TO MAC
WITH YOUR SUSPICIONS?
LAURA: MAC ALREADY KNEW,
BOBBIE.
I MEAN, SPOUSES HAVE A WAY
OF PICKING UP ON THOSE THINGS.
BOBBIE: OH, LAURA, COME ON.
FELICIA AND MAC DON'T NEED
YOU STIRRING THE WATERS.
LAURA: BOBBIE, OPEN
YOUR EYES.
I'M NOT THE ONE STIRRING
ANYTHING.
MY GOD, LOOK AT FELICIA.
SHE'S A MARRIED WOMAN WITH TWO
CHILDREN VERY YOUNG IN AGE
AND APPARENTLY SHE DOESN'T MIND
ABANDONING THEM AND HER HUSBAND,
TOO, TO GO OFF ON ONE OF LUKE'S
CRAZY ADVENTURES.
BOBBIE: ISN'T IT A LITTLE
LATE IN THE DAY FOR YOU TO START
ACTING JEALOUS OVER LUKE?
LAURA: WELL,
I GUESS I'M -- I MUST BE IN SOME
PERIOD OF ADJUSTMENT.
YOU KNOW, IT JUST --
I HAVEN'T QUITE REACHED
THE POINT WHERE IT FEELS OK
WITH ME TO HAVE HIM GO OFF
WITH ANOTHER WOMAN.
BOBBIE: LUKE AND FELICIA ARE
FRIENDS.
YOU KNOW, WHEN LUKE NEEDED HELP
GETTING OVER LUCKY'S DEATH,
FELICIA WAS THERE FOR HIM.
THAT'S JUST LIKE HER.
AND I THINK THAT'S PROBABLY WHY
SHE GOT HIM INVOLVED IN SOME
OF HER RESEARCH TRIPS.
AND THAT'S PROBABLY WHERE
THEY ARE RIGHT NOW.
NOTHING MORE.
AT ANY RATE, I REALLY DON'T
THINK IT'S ANY OF YOUR BUSINESS
OR MINE.
AND I WISH YOU'D THOUGHT ABOUT
IT THAT WAY BEFORE TAKING ANY
OF THIS TO MAC.
LAURA: MAC ALREADY HAD
HIS SUSPICIONS, ALL RIGHT?
AND I DIDN'T VOICE MY CONCERNS.
I DIDN'T, YOU KNOW.
I TOLD YOU, SPOUSES JUST HAVE
A WAY OF KNOWING THOSE THINGS.
BOBBIE: OK, FINE.
LAURA: IT'S TRUE!
BOBBIE: ALL RIGHT, FINE.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
I GOT TO GO TO THE BANK.
YOU KNOW, LAURA,
YOU'RE THE ONE WHO FILED
FOR DIVORCE.
AND YOU'RE THE ONE WHO DECIDED
TO MOVE ON.
SO DON'T GET UPSET THAT LUKE IS
STARTING TO LET GO.

LUKE: NOW, FIRST THING WE'LL
DO TONIGHT IS A RECONNAISSANCE
RUN AROUND THE PROPERTY
OF THE HOUSE.
FELICIA: HAS IT OCCURRED
TO YOU THAT THERE MIGHT BE MORE
THAN ONE HOUSE?
LUKE: OK, THERE MIGHT BE.
WE'LL CHECK OUT WHATEVER'S
THERE.
WE'LL LOOK FOR HOW MANY GUARDS,
IF THERE'S ANY PATTERNS,
IF THEY'RE CHANGING, AND WHAT
KIND OF SECURITY'S IN PLACE,
AND THEN WE'LL REGROUP.
AND WE'LL COME UP WITH A RESCUE
STRATEGY.
FELICIA: OK.
WHAT ABOUT BACKUP?
LUKE: I HOPE YOU'RE NOT GOING
TO SUGGEST THAT I CALL THE LOCAL
POLICE AND TELL THEM THAT
MY SON, WHO A YEAR AGO WAS
BURNED TO A CRISP, WASN'T REALLY
KILLED BUT IS ACTUALLY ALIVE
AND WELL AND BEING HELD CAPTIVE
IN NOVA SCOTIA BECAUSE
IF YOU THINK I'M GOING TO TELL
ANYBODY WITH A BADGE THAT
STORY --
FELICIA: STOP.
LUKE: YOU NEED A REST
IN A RUBBER ROOM.
FELICIA: WE'VE GONE OVER THIS
ALREADY.
I'M TALKING ABOUT ROY.
LUKE: OH. ROY.
FELICIA: ROY. HIM, YEAH.
LUKE: OH, YEAH. SORRY.
YEAH, WELL, OBVIOUSLY ROY'S
THE CHOICE IF WE NEED BACKUP.
BUT IT WOULD BE BETTER TO DO
THIS OURSELVES, QUICK, QUIET.
THERE'S LESS CHANCE OF STEFAN
BEING ALERTED THAT WAY.
AND REMEMBER, ROY BOARDS
WITH LAURA, SO IF HE HAD TO COME
AND HELP ME OUT, HE MIGHT HAVE
TO MAKE EXPLANATIONS.
FELICIA: EXPLANATIONS CAN GET
COMPLICATED.
LUKE: YEAH.
HOW YOU DOING ON THAT FRONT,
ORPHEY?
FELICIA: I KNOW MAC.
WHEN WE BRING LUCKY HOME,
HE'LL UNDERSTAND WHY I HAD TO DO
THIS.
LUKE: YOU'VE REALLY PUT IT
ALL ON THE LINE THIS TIME,
HAVEN'T YOU?
FELICIA: WELL, YOU'D DO
THE SAME THING FOR ME.
YOU HAVE.
THAT'S WHAT PARTNERS DO, RIGHT?
PARTNERS DO THAT KIND OF THING.

NED: TO MY BRAVE,
DETERMINED, ALL-AROUND
INCREDIBLE WIFE, WELCOME HOME.
ALEXIS: WELCOME HOME, CHLOE.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
CHLOE: SPEAKING OF MARRIAGES,
DOES GERTRUDE OR ANYONE ELSE
THINK OURS ARE STILL VALID?
NED: I HAVEN'T BEEN PAYING
ATTENTION.
HAVE YOU?
ALEXIS: EVERYONE KNOWS
MY HUSBAND HAS BEEN WITH YOU ALL
THE TIME IN THE HOSPITAL,
BUT THAT'S WHERE HE NEEDED
TO BE.
NED: AND NO ONE SEEMED
TO QUESTION IT.
AT LEAST NOT IN PERS.
AND, TO BE PERFECTLY HONEST,
ALEXIS AND I HAVEN'T BEEN VERY
DISCREET, EITHER.
ALEXIS: REALLY DIDN'T SEEM
LIKE A PRIORITY.
JAX: WELL, OUR PRIORITY IS
YOUR RECOVERY.
WE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT
KEEPING UP APPEARANCES
FOR ANYONE.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
ALEXIS: THAT'S ME.
I'LL JUST BE A SECOND.
ALEXIS DAVIS.
WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF SOMETHING
HERE.
WHY DON'T YOU JUST TELL ME WHAT
IT'S ABOUT?
OH.
I'LL BE RIGHT THERE.
IT'S A CLIENT.
I'M SORRY.
YOU KNOW, I WOULD IMAGINE
YOU TWO WANT TO SPEND SOME TIME
ALONE ANYWAY, HUH?
NED: I'LL WALK YOU OUT.
UM, I'VE GOT SOMEONE TO MEET
IN THE GRILL ANYWAY.
ARE YOU GOING TO BE OK?
CHLOE: I'M PERFECT.
NED: GOOD. ALL RIGHT.
BE DOWNSTAIRS.
ALEXIS: YOU OK?
CHLOE: MM-HMM.
ALEXIS: I'LL SEE YOU LATER.
CHLOE: THANKS.
ALEXIS: AND I'M GOING TO CALL
BEFORE I STORM IN ON THE TWO
OF YOU THIS TIME, OK?
CHLOE and JAX: THANKS.
ALEXIS: OK.
SEE YOU LATER.
JAX: SO HOW ARE YOU DOING?
CHLOE: TRUTHFULLY?
I'M TRYING NOT TO PANIC.

CHLOE: I'M OK AS LONG
AS I JUST STAY IN THE MOMENT.
IF I CONCENTRATE ON HOW HAPPY
I AM THAT I'M OUT OF
THE HOSPITAL OR ON HOW GOOD
THE CHAMPAGNE TASTES --
IT'S JUST
WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE FUTURE,
LIKE IF I DON'T GET
MY SIGHT BACK,
I JUST CAN'T IMAGINE THAT.
I NOW KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE
TO NOT SEE.
I JUST CAN'T SEE HOW TO FIT THAT
INTO MY LIFE.
JAX: WELL, YOU MAY NOT HAVE
TO, OK?
THE SWELLING COULD STILL GO
DOWN.
YOU COULD STILL GET YOUR SIGHT
BACK.
IN THE MEANTIME, JUST
STAY IN THE MOMENT
HERE WITH ME.
JUST CONCENTRATE ON THE GOOD
STUFF, OK?
CHLOE: I'M TRYING.
WILL YOU TAKE ME TO THE WINDOW?
JAX: SURE.
COME ON.
IT'S AROUND THE COUCH.
JAX: OK, HERE WE -- STEPS.
CHLOE: OK.
JAX: READY?
CHLOE: READY. OH.
JAX: ONE -- HERE WE GO --
TWO, AND THREE.
YEAH, MADE IT.
RIGHT HERE.
CHLOE: OK.
LET ME SEE IF I GET THIS RIGHT.
AHEM.
THE LAKE'S STRAIGHT AHEAD OF US.
JAX: RIGHT.
CHLOE: AND THE
E.L.Q. BUILDING IS OFF
TO THE RIGHT.
AND BEYOND THAT, THERE'S A PARK.
JAX: THAT'S RIGHT.
AND EVERYTHING IS COVERED
IN SNOW.
CHLOE: I REMEMBER THE FIRST
TIME I SAW THIS VIEW.
IT WAS LATE SPRING,
AND YOU'D GIVEN ME DIRECTIONS
OVER HERE.
JAX: YEAH.
CHLOE: AND I CAME
BY SO WE COULD FIGURE OUT HOW
TO PLOT THE ROMANCE BETWEEN
SIMON AND V.
JAX: I REMEMBER.
CHLOE: I REMEMBER I WALKED
TO THIS WINDOW,
AND I TURNED AROUND AND LOOKED
AT YOU.
I CAN STILL SEE YOU
STANDING THERE.
THE WAY YOU WERE SMILING.
EVEN IF I NEVER SEE YOU AGAIN,
I WILL ALWAYS HAVE THAT IMAGE
IN MY HEAD.
AND SO MANY OTHER WONDERFUL
ONES, REALLY.
SO, WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT,
I'M REALLY VERY, VERY FORTUNATE.

FELICIA: OH.
HI.
LUKE: HI.
WISH I COULD SLEEP.
LUKE: YOU KNOW, WHEN
LUCKY WAS A KID --
I MEAN, A BABY --
FROM ALMOST THE TIME HE COULD
STAND UP, HE WAS JUMPING.
USED TO JUMP OFF THINGS ALL
THE TIME.
HE'D JUMP OFF CHAIRS AND
TABLES,
CAR HOODS.
I'D THROW HIM UP IN THE AIR,
AND HE'D LOOK DOWN AT ME AND GO,
"PAPA.
PAPA, I'M FLYING."
LUKE: I'M REALLY TRYING NOT
TO COUNT ON THIS TOO MUCH,
YOU KNOW?
I'M REALLY TRYING NOT TO BELIEVE
WITH EVERY LAST FIBER
OF MY BEING THAT HE'S ALIVE
BECAUSE I COULD BE SO
DISAPPOINTED.
BUT IT'S HARD NOT TO, YOU KNOW.
FELICIA: YEAH, I KNOW.
LUKE: I CAN'T STOP THINKING
ABOUT IT.
FELICIA: YEAH.
LUKE: IT WAS THE RIGHT THING
NOT TO TELL LAURA.
FELICIA: WELL,
WE SHOULD BE LANDING SOON.
LUKE: YEAH.
FELICIA: YEAH.
LUKE: SOON.

ELIZABETH: HEY.
LAURA: OH, HI.
HOW ARE YOU?
ELIZABETH: FINE.
HOW WAS LULU'S VALENTINE'S
PARTY?
LAURA: WELL, FOR ME IT WAS
CHAOTIC AND FOR HER IT WAS
GREAT.
IT WAS A TEA PARTY.
SHE HAD ALL OF HER LITTLE
FRIENDS OVER WITH THEIR DOLLIES
AND THEY HAD HATS AND GLOVES.
IT WAS REALLY CUTE.
HOW WAS YOURS?
ELIZABETH: I WENT BACK
TO THE CHURCH WHERE LUCKY
AND I MADE OUR VALENTINE'S
PROMISES.
I MISSED HIM, LIKE ALWAYS,
BUT THERE WAS SOMETHING ELSE
THIS TIME.
A KIND OF PEACE.
IT WAS JUST LIKE YOU TOLD ME.
I'M STARTING TO REALIZE I CAN
LET GO OF THE GRIEF
WITHOUT LETTING GO OF HIM.
LAURA: WELL, THAT SOUNDS LIKE
A REALLY IMPORTANT STEP.
WAITRESS: HERE YOU GO.
MACARONI AND CHEESE,
CHINESE CHICKEN SALAD, AND TWO
APPLE TORTES.
LAURA: GREAT.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
WAITRESS: OH, THANK YOU.
LAURA: I DON'T NEED ANY
CHANGE.
WAITRESS: OH, THANK YOU.
LAURA: UM, LISTEN, IT WOULD
BE NICE IF YOU'D STOP
BY AND VISIT LULU BECAUSE
SHE REALLY DOES MISS YOU,
YOU KNOW?
SHE'D LIKE TO TELL YOU ABOUT
HER ICE FISHING, I THINK.
ELIZABETH: WHO TAKES
HER ICE FISHING?
LAURA: WELL, HER DAD GOT
HER STARTED ON IT, BUT
OUR FRIEND ROY KIND OF SUBS
FOR HIM WHENEVER HE'S NOT
AVAILABLE.
ELIZABETH: OH.
LAURA: BUT SHE'LL TELL
YOU ALL ABOUT IT.
SO --
ELIZABETH: I'LL HAVE
TO COME BY.
HERE YOU GO.
LAURA: TAKE CARE.
ELIZABETH: YOU, TOO.
LAURA: HI.

EMILY: I NEED A SODA
AND A SYMPATHETIC EAR.
THINGS JUST KEEP GETTING WEIRDER
AND WEIRDER AROUND MY HOUSE.
I MEAN, MY FAMILY COULD ALREADY
FRY A THERAPIST'S BRAIN, BUT NOW
THAT ALL THIS STUFF IS GOING ON,
IT'S COMPLETELY CRAZY.
I MEAN, I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT
CARLY IS PREGNANT WITH SONNY'S
CHILD.
HANNAH: WHAT DID YOU SAY?

SONNY: COME ON IN.
HAVE A SEAT.
TAKE THIS DOWN TO THE WAREHOUSE,
WILL YOU?
THANKS FOR COMING.
ALEXIS: YOU SAID IT WAS
IMPORTANT.
SONNY: CAN I GET
YOU ANYTHING?
WATER?
ALEXIS: NO, THANK YOU.
JUST TELL ME, ARE WE GOING TO BE
INTERRUPTED BY THE POLICE
OR THE F.B.I.?
SONNY: AH, NEITHER.
I NEED TO KNOW MY
LEGAL RIGHTS
IN REGARDS TO MY CHILD.

ALEXIS: I WASN'T AWARE THAT
YOU HAD A CHILD.
SONNY: I DIDN'T KNOW,
EITHER, UNTIL A COUPLE
OF DAYS AGO.
CARLY QUARTERMAINE IS
PREGNANT AND
THE BABY'S MINE.
ALEXIS: WHAT ON EARTH WERE
YOU THINKING?
SONNY: IT WAS JUST ONCE.
ALEXIS: OH, MY GOD!
SONNY: AND IT'S NOT --
IT'S -- I DON'T WANT TO GET
INTO IT.
ALEXIS: OH, MY -- ARE
YOU SURE THAT THIS IS
YOUR CHILD?
SONNY: IT IS.
ALEXIS: ALL RIGHT, IF YOU'RE
SUGGESTING THAT YOU WANT LEGAL
CUSTODY, YOU NEED TO KNOW THAT
EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS CHILD IS
ADMISSIBLE IN COURT --
SONNY: ALL RIGHT.
ALEXIS: INCLUDING HOW IT WAS
CONCEIVED.
SONNY: WHAT DO YOU WANT
TO KNOW?
ALEXIS: NO -- I DON'T WANT
TO KNOW.
THE COURT WILL WANT TO KNOW --
POSSIBILITY OF ANOTHER FATHER.
WHAT ABOUT A.J.?
WHAT ABOUT JASON?
SONNY: LET'S JUST SAY I'M
IN THE POSITION TO KNOW THAT
NEITHER A.J. NOR JASON SLEPT
WITH CARLY DURING THE TIME
THE BABY WAS CONCEIVED.
ALEXIS: HOW DID YOU FIND OUT?
SONNY: SHE TRIED TO PASS IT
OFF AS A.J.'S.
I CONFRONTED HER AND
SHE COULDN'T DENY IT.
ALEXIS: FIRST ORDER
OF BUSINESS -- A PATERNITY TEST.
SONNY: WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT?
IF IT DOESN'T JEOPARDIZE
THE BABY --
ALEXIS: THEY WOULD NEVER DO
THAT.
SONNY: WELL, THEN, IF IT'S
SAFE, THEN I'LL DO THE TEST,
BUT ALL IT'S GOING TO PROVE IS
THAT I'M THE FATHER.
THEN WHAT?
ALEXIS: A LONG, A VERY
DIFFICULT, POSSIBLY LOSING
BATTLE ON YOUR HANDS.
AND TO BE CLEAR, I'M NOT AT ALL
SURE I WANT TO TAKE ON THIS
CASE.

CARLY: HAVE YOU SEEN MICHAEL?
EDWARD: LETICIA TOOK HIM
TO THE PARK.
I THOUGHT YOU WERE RESTING.
YOU NEED TO RECOVER AFTER
THE STRAIN OF THAT HOODLUM'S
VISIT.
CARLY: I CAN HANDLE SONNY.
EDWARD: NO, I DON'T THINK
YOU CAN.
NOW, NO DOUBT, HE HOLDS
YOU COMPLETELY RESPONSIBLE
FOR WHATEVER TOOK PLACE BETWEEN
YOU TWO WHEN THIS BABY WAS
CONCEIVED.
HE CERTAINLY DOESN'T RESPECT
YOU AS A MOTHER.
AND HE'LL STOP AT NOTHING TO TRY
TO GET THIS BABY AWAY FROM YOU.
CARLY: WELL, MAYBE YOU COULD
GIVE HIM SOME TIPS -- YOU KNOW,
KIDNAPPING.
YOU DID TRY IT ONCE IF NOT
TWICE.
EDWARD: OH. THAT WAS THAT
LUNATIC TONY JONES MEDDLING.
THEN, WE DIDN'T KNOW THAT
A.J. HAD A PATERNAL CLAIM
ON MICHAEL, JUST LIKE CORINTHOS
HAS ON THIS BABY.
DO YOU REALIZE THAT,
AS WE SPEAK, CORINTHOS IS
MEETING WITH ALEXIS DAVIS?
AND YOU REMEMBER HOW STUNNED
YOU WERE WHEN SHE CONVINCED
THE JUDGE TO AWARD PARTIAL
CUSTODY TO JASON FOR A BABY THAT
HE DIDN'T EVEN FATHER?
IMAGINE WHAT SHE'LL DO
FOR CORINTHOS.
NOW, IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT
YOU REALIZE HOW MUCH YOU NEED
THIS FAMILY.
FOR MICHAEL'S SAKE,
WE'LL -- WE'LL LET YOU STAY HERE
WITH US AND WE'LL HELP YOU FIGHT
FOR MICHAEL'S LITTLE BROTHER
OR SISTER.
BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE --
IF YOU TRY TO LEAVE,
YOU WILL BE FACING A CUSTODY
BATTLE ON TWO FRONTS.
AND YOU COULD WIND UP LOSING
BOTH YOUR CHILDREN.
NOW YOU THINK ABOUT THAT,
YOUNG LADY.
CARLY: PLEASE, I NEED --
I NEED TO SEE YOU.

HANNAH: SONNY WOULD NEVER
SLEEP WITH CARLY.
SHE'S LYING.
EMILY: HANNAH, THIS IS KIND
OF PRIVATE.
I MEAN, YOU KNOW --
HANNAH: IF SOMEONE'S GOING
AROUND SPREADING VICIOUS RUMORS
ABOUT SONNY, I HAVE THE RIGHT
TO KNOW.
EMILY: HE ADMITTED IT,
OK, IN FRONT OF MY ENTIRE
FAMILY.
ASK HIM YOURSELF.
TAMMY: HEY, HANNAH.
WHAT WAS THAT ABOUT?
EMILY: WELL, GO AHEAD.
TELL HER.
IT'S NOT A SECRET ANYMORE.
ELIZABETH: CARLY'S PREGNANT,
AND SONNY IS THE FATHER.
TAMMY: EXCUSE ME?
EMILY: YOU HEARD HER.
TAMMY: OH, NOW, YOU KNOW,
THAT IS A MESS NO MATTER HOW
YOU LOOK AT IT.
[EMILY SIGHS]
ELIZABETH: OH.
SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK'S GOING
TO HAPPEN?
EMILY: WELL, FIRST OF ALL,
I FEEL BAD FOR THE BABY.
I MEAN, CARLY HAS TO BE
THE WORST MOTHER IN THE ENTIRE
WORLD, AND MY ENTIRE FAMILY
HATES SONNY FOR WHAT HE DID
TO JASON, SO --
ELIZABETH: SONNY SEEMS
TO FEEL SO BAD.
I CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL BAD
FOR HIM.
EMILY: YEAH.
I FELT BAD FOR SONNY,
TOO, UNTIL HE DID WHAT HE DID
TO JASON.
I MEAN, HE HAD TO HAVE KNOWN.
THAT'S WHY HE LEFT TOWN.
ELIZABETH: LOOK, NOBODY EVER
MADE JASON DO ANYTHING HE DIDN'T
WANT TO.
AND IT DOESN'T HELP THAT BABY
FOR US TO BE MAD AT SONNY --
OR CARLY, FOR THAT MATTER.
IN FACT, IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT,
THAT KID'S PROBABLY GOING
TO NEED A FRIEND OR TWO.
SO MAYBE WE SHOULD KEEP THAT
IN MIND FOR THE NEXT TIME WE SEE
CARLY.
EMILY: ELIZABETH,
ARE YOU SUGGESTING THAT WE TRY
TO BE NICE OR FRIENDLY
WITH CARLY?
I MEAN, BOTH OF US HATE HER.
WHAT'S THE POINT?
ELIZABETH: I KNOW, I KNOW.
I GUESS WHAT I'M TRYING TO SAY
IS MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST TAKE IT
EASY ON HER THE NEXT TIME WE SEE
HER -- YOU KNOW, FOR THE BABY'S
SAKE.
THAT'S WHAT JASON WOULD DO.
EMILY: I GUESS,
FOR THE BABY'S SAKE.

JAX: RIGHT HERE.
CHLOE: OK.
SO IT'S ONE, TWO --
THREE STEPS TO THE COUCH.
JAX: YEP.
DO YOU NEED ANYTHING?
CHLOE: YOU'RE THE BEST
MEDICINE THAT I COULD IMAGINE.
AND THE FIRE.
IT FEELS WONDERFUL.
AND IT SMELLS SO GOOD.
I LOVE TO HEAR IT CRACKLING.
FUNNY THING ABOUT BEING BLIND --
ALL YOUR OTHER SENSES SORT
OF STEP FORWARD.
CLOSE YOUR EYES.
LISTEN.
I JUST
WISH I COULD SEE YOU
IN THE FIRELIGHT.
JAX: YOU CAN.
JAX: TELL ME WHAT YOU SEE.
CHLOE: YOU'RE NOT LOOKING
AT ME.
NOW YOU ARE.
AND YOU'RE SMILING.
JAX: THAT'S NOT ALL.
CHLOE: I'VE MISSED YOU.
JAX: WELL, I DON'T SEE HOW
THAT'S POSSIBLE.
I'VE NEVER LEFT YOUR SIDE.
CHLOE: I KNOW.
I WANT TO MAKE LOVE
WITH YOU, JAX.
I WANT TO FEEL THAT
CONNECTED TO YOU,
THAT CLOSE.
JAX: ARE YOU SURE?
CHLOE: I'VE NEVER BEEN MORE
SURE OF ANYTHING IN MY LIFE.
I DON'T HAVE TO SEE YOU TO MAKE
LOVE TO YOU.
WE CAN JUST BE TOGETHER.

BOBBIE: CARLY?
CARLY: HI.
BOBBIE: HI.
I WAS SURPRISED TO GET
YOUR CALL.
BUT IF THIS IS JUST GOING TO BE
ANOTHER RANT BECAUSE SONNY FOUND
OUT ABOUT THE BABY FROM ME,
I WOULD JUST AS SOON SKIP IT.
CARLY: I DIDN'T CALL YOU HERE
TO FIGHT.
NOT BECAUSE I'M NOT STILL ANGRY,
BECAUSE I STILL AM, YOU KNOW.
I STILL DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY
YOU FELT LIKE YOU HAD TO TELL
HIM THE TRUTH WHEN HE DIDN'T
EVEN KNOW --
BOBBIE: ALL RIGHT,
LISTEN, LISTEN -- IF WE'RE NOT
GOING TO FIGHT, WHAT'S UP?
CARLY: MY WHOLE WORLD'S
FALLING APART.
I GOT TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO
NEXT.
I JUST DON'T THINK THAT I CAN DO
IT BY MYSELF.
I NEED YOUR HELP.

MAN: KEEP IT, THANKS.
TAMMY: OH, THANK YOU.
MIKE: HEY.
TAMMY: HEY!
MIKE: ANY CHANCE MY FAVORITE
LADY'S FREE TONIGHT?
TAMMY: WELL, I MIGHT BE.
ARE YOU SUGGESTING A DATE?
MIKE: YEAH.
I WAS THINKING ABOUT DINNER
AT MARIO'S?
TAMMY: OOH. THAT SOUNDS GOOD.
MIKE: YEAH.
TAMMY: ANYWAY, HOW'S -- HOW'S
SONNY FEELING?
MIKE: IS THIS YOUR WAY
OF TELLING ME YOU KNOW I'M GOING
TO BE A GRANDFATHER?
TAMMY: NO.
ACTUALLY, I ONLY FOUND OUT
TODAY, AND MY FIRST THOUGHTS
WERE WITYOU.
I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU WORRY ABOUT
SONNY AND I KNOW THIS IS JUST --
WELL, IT SOUNDS LIKE A BAD
SITUATION.
MIKE: YEAH.
YEAH, I DON'T SEE HOW IT COULD
BE ANY WORSE.
I MEAN, SONNY'S HARD ON HIMSELF
UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES,
BUT THIS PUSHES EVERY BUTTON
HE HAS.
I MEAN, I -- I WALKED OUT ON HIM
WHEN HE WAS A CHILD,
SO TO SONNY, ANYTHING LESS THAN
TOTAL COMMITMENT IS JUST NOT
BEING A FATHER.
AND WHEN YOU -- YOU ADD TO THAT
THE FACT THAT HIS WIFE WAS
PREGNANT WHEN SHE DIED,
AND FOR WHICH HE STILL FEELS
RESPONSIBLE, THEN YOU HAVE SOME
IDEA OF THE INVESTMENT HE HAS
IN THIS CHILD.
TAMMY: YOU KNOW,
SONNY'S ALWAYS BEEN SO CAREFUL
WITH KIDS, THE WAY HE TOOK
IN STONE, ELIZABETH -- WELL,
ELIZABETH WEBBER'S NOT EXACTLY
A KID, BUT THE WAY HE
PROTECTS HER.
I WOULD THINK THAT HAVING
A CHILD OF HIS OWN WOULD MEAN
THE WORLD TO SONNY.
MIKE: AND ON THE OTHER HAND,
THE MOTHER IS CARLY.
AND I THINK IT'S SAFE TO SAY
THAT THAT'S SOMEONE THAT SONNY
DESPISES.
AND IN THE COURSE OF CONCEIVING
THAT BABY, HE BETRAYED HIS BEST
FRIEND AND OBVIOUSLY BROKE
JASON'S HEART.
I MEAN, THE WHOLE SITUATION'S
A NIGHTMARE.
TAMMY: YEAH, GIVEN HE HAS
SOME NEGOTIATING TO DO
WITH CARLY AS WELL.
MIKE: AND THAT --
THAT IS A DISASTER IN
THE MAKING.

SONNY: SO YOU DON'T WANT
TO TAKE MY CASE?
SO YOU THINK MY KID IS BETTER
OFF WITH A.J. QUARTERMAINE
OR NO FATHER AT ALL, JUST CARLY?
ALEXIS: I REALLY DON'T KNOW
WHAT'S BEST FOR THIS CHILD,
AND QUITE FRANKLY, I DON'T KNOW
THAT I WANT TO TAKE
RESPONSIBILITY IN WHAT HAPPENS
TO THE CHILD.
SONNY: THE RESPONSIBILITY IS
MINE.
THIS KID HAS A RIGHT TO MY LOVE,
TO EVERYTHING I CAN GIVE IT.
I'VE BEEN FIGHTING ALL MY LIFE,
BUT NEVER FOR SOMETHING
AS IMPORTANT AS THIS.
I KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO GROW UP
WITHOUT YOUR FATHER,
IN AN UNWANTED HOME,
AS AN OUTSIDER.
THE QUARTERMAINES ARE WILLING
TO RAISE MY KID LIKE
A STRAY PUPPY IF IT MEANS
HOLDING ON TO MICHAEL.
THAT'S THE SITUATION THAT I'M
NOT GOING TO LET HAPPEN.
NOW, I'M -- I'M RESPONSIBLE
FOR CONCEIVING THIS CHILD,
SO THAT MEANS I'M RESPONSIBLE
FOR RAISING IT, GIVING IT LOVE,
AND WHATEVER ELSE IT NEEDS,
BUT I WILL TELL YOU SOMETHING
RIGHT NOW.
I WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES
TO MAKE IT SAFE
FOR MY CHILD.
ALEXIS: IS THAT POSSIBLE?
SONNY: I -- I'M NOT --
I WILL NOT ABANDON MY KID.
I JUST READ IN THE PAPER,
YOU KNOW, NED ASHTON'S WIFE
CROSSES THE STREET, GETS HIT
BY A CAR.
IS IT SAFE?
SHOULD SHE NOT HAVE CHILDREN?
WHAT IF YOU WERE WITH HER?
IS IT -- SHOULD YOU NOT HAVE
CHILDREN, EITHER?
WHO KNOWS WHAT'S SAFE?
ALEXIS: ALL RIGHT.
HOW DO YOU SEE CARLY'S ROLE
PLAYING OUT IN THIS?
SONNY: WELL, YOU KNOW --
IF SHE'S WILLING TO COOPERATE,
I DON'T WANT TO TAKE THE BABY
FROM ITS MOTHER.
BUT I -- YOU KNOW, THE BABY'S
PROBABLY BETTER OFF WITHOUT HER.
ALEXIS: I WILL CONSIDER
TAKING THIS CASE.
ALEXIS: YOU ARE A SINGLE MAN
WITH A VERY SHADY PAST.
YOU ARE NOT GOOD FATHER MATERIAL
TO A COURT.
HOWEVER, CARLY -- WELL,
HER TRACK RECORD IS A --
SONNY: JOKE.
ALEXIS: THANK YOU.
SONNY: RIGHT.
ALEXIS: THAT'S A PLACE
TO START.
SONNY: NOW WHAT?
ALEXIS: YOU STAY COOL.
YOU DON'T PRESSURE HER.
THE QUARTERMAINE LEGAL TEAM IS
GOING TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE
YOU'RE THREATENING HER.
WE NEED A PATERNITY TEST,
AND IF IT'S PROVEN THAT YOU'RE
THE FATHER, THEN WE'LL PROCEED.
NNY: OK.
ALEXIS: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
AT ALL WHAT YOU HAVE GOTTEN
YOURSELF INTO?
SONNY: YEAH, I KNOW.
ALEXIS: YEAH -- NO.
SONNY: I KNOW, IT'S ALL
GREAT.
ALEXIS: NO, I DON'T THINK
THAT YOU DO BECAUSE IF THIS
TURNS INTO A HEARING, YOU WILL
BE SAVAGED ON THE STAND.
SONNY: WHATEVER IT TAKES.
IT'S -- IT'S FOR THE KID.
ALEXIS: YOU HAVE
POSSIBILITIES.

FELICIA: OH, HERE WE GO
AGAIN.
NO GUARDS.
LUKE: IT'S ODD.
DOESN'T FEEL RIGHT AT ALL.
THE LIGHTS ARE ON.

JAX: SO, CAN I INTEREST
YOU IN A NICE, LONG BUBBLE BATH
FOR TWO?
CHLOE: THAT SOUNDS PERFECT.
JAX: OK, THEN.
GERTRUDE: WELL, WELL, WELL.
WHAT HAVE WE HERE?
NED: HI.
ALEXIS: YOU'RE NEVER GOING
TO BELIEVE WHAT I'VE JUST HEARD.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT MY CLIENT WANTS
ME TO DO FOR HIM?
NED: FILE FOR CHILD CUSTODY?
ALEXIS: I WANTED TO TELL YOU!
HOW DO YOU KNOW?
YOU KNOW ABOUT CARLY ABOUT
SONNY?
NED: GRANDFATHER TOLD ME THIS
MORNING.
THE FAMILY WAS HOPING THAT SONNY
WOULD GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT.
OBVIOUSLY, THAT'S NOT GOING
TO HAPPEN.
ALEXIS: OBVIOUSLY NOT,
BECAUSE HE WANTS ME TO DO
EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO SECURE
HIS LEGAL RIGHTS.
NED: I HOPE YOU TOLD HIM NO.

CARLY: SONNY CAME TO
SEE ME TODAY, AND
HE'S DOING EXACTLY WHAT
I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO DO.
HE -- HE WANTS THE BABY
FOR HIMSELF.
AND HE DOESN'T CARE WHAT HE HAS
TO DO TO GET IT.
BOBBIE: OH, WELL,
HONEY, THAT'S A NATURAL
REACTION, CONSIDERING YOU TRIED
TO KEEP THE TRUTH FROM HIM.
BUT ONCE HE COOLS DOWN,
YOU'LL BE ABLE TO REASON
WITH HIM.
CARLY: OH, NO.
HE WAS -- HE WAS VERY COLD TODAY
AND VERY MUCH IN CONTROL.
I DON'T THINK I'M GOING TO BE
ABLE TO CHANGE HIS MIND.
HE WANTS HIS CHILD AND ME,
BECAUSE I'M CARRYING IT,
OUT OF THIS HOUSE IMMEDIATELY.
BUT, SEE, EDWARD AND A.J. HAVE
ALSO MADE IT VERY CLEAR THAT
IF I TRY TO LEAVE, THEY'RE GOING
TO TAKE MICHAEL FROM ME,
SO AS EVERYONE KEEPS POINTING
OUT, IT'S VERY POSSIBLE THAT
I COULD END UP LOSING BOTH
OF MY KIDS.
BOBBIE: I DON'T THINK IT'LL
COME TO THAT.
CARLY: WELL, I'M NOT GOING
TO RISK LOSING MY BABIES
BECAUSE OF YOUR WISHFUL
THINKING.
THE ONLY WAY FOR ME TO KEEP THEM
IS TO STAY HERE, BUT THEY --
EVERY SINGLE DAY IN THIS
MADHOUSE IS WORSE THAN THE LAST
DAY, YOU KNOW?
THEY ALL HATE ME.
AND THEY SMOTHER MICHAEL,
AND THEY'LL HATE THIS BABY.
I KNOW THEY WILL.
BOBBIE: THEY CAME TO LOVE
JASON.
CARLY: BUT JASON WAS ALAN'S.
AND THE WHOLE -- YOU KNOW,
WHATEVER THEY CALLED LOVE DROVE
HIM AWAY.
HE DIDN'T EVEN WANT THEIR NAME.
GOD, WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?
I'M NOT GOING TO LET MY MISTAKES
RUIN MY KIDS' LIVES, YOU KNOW?
I GOT TO -- I GOT TO FIND
THE RIGHT THING TO DO, YOU KNOW?
I'M JUST NOT SURE WHAT THAT IS.
GOT TO FIND A WAY OUT.

HANNAH: IS IT TRUE?
IS CARLY GOING TO HAVE
YOUR BABY?
SONNY: YEAH.

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

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

GERTRUDE: CAUGHT IN THE ACT
AT LAST.
CHLOE: WH IS GOING ON?

BOBBIE: YOU CAN SCARE
YOURSELF INTO MAKING ANOTHER BAD
DECISION.
OR YOU CAN LET ME HELP.

HANNAH: YOU SLEPT WITH CARLY
BECAUSE OF ME, DIDN'T YOU?

LUKE: I'M GOING IN.
FELICIA: BE CAREFUL.
IT COULD BE A TRAP.
