JUAN: IF MS. DAVIS SAID
THE CONTRACTS WILL BE THERE,
THEN THEY'LL BE THERE.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
JUAN: OH, SHE SAID YESTERDAY?
WELL, MAYBE THEY GOT LOST
IN THE MAIL?
[RING]
JUAN YOU KNOW, CAN YOU HOLD
ON FOR ONE SECOND?
I JUST NEED TO GET THE OTHER
LINE.
JUST ONE SECOND, THANKS.
L&B ENTERTAINMENT.
HELLO?
[RING]
JUAN: L&B ENTERTAINMENT.
NO, I'M SORRY, MR. ASHTON'S NOT
HERE.
CAN I TAKE A MESSAGE?
OK, HOLD ON FOR ONE SECOND,
I JUST NEED TO GET SOMETHING
TO WRITE WITH.
I DON'T KNOW WHERE MY --
OH, THANKS.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
JUAN: YEAH, GO AHEAD.
I'M READY.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
THE OTHER LINE'S RINGING.
CAN YOU HOLD ON FOR ONE SECOND?
YEAH, I'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
OK, JUST ONE SECOND. THANKS.
L&B ENTERTAINMENT.
NIKOLAS: GOOD MORNING,
L&B ENTERTAINMENT.
ANYWAY --
JUAN: NEVER MIND.
SOMEBODY ELSE GOT IT.
SO, WHAT WAS YOUR MESSAGE?
UH-HUH.
OK.
SURE.
YEAH, I'LL LET HIM KNOW.
THANKS A LOT.
NIKOLAS: SO, WHEN DID
YOU LEAVE FRAGRANCES
FOR THE FASHION INDUSTRY?
WELL, THAT'S A FUNNY LINE.
DID YOU ALWAYS HAVE THAT SENSE
OF HUMOR?

EMILY: YOU KNOW, THIS IS ALL
VERY, VERY, WEIRD.
ALAN: WHAT?
EMILY: WELL, I'M USED
TO HAVING AN ARGUMENT
IN THE MORNING DURING BREAKFAST.
AND NOW THAT IT'S ALL QUIET,
I JUST KIND OF FEEL LIKE WE'RE
MISSING SOMETHING.
EDWARD: THIS FAMILY DOESN'T
ARGUE.
WE MERELY EXCHANGE OPINIONS
IN A VERY SPIRITED MANNER.
A.J.: WELL, THANK
YOU FOR CLEARING THAT UP.
I FEEL A LOT BETTER.
MONICA: THE REASON IT IS
SO QUIET THIS MORNING,
EMILY, IS BECAUSE CARLY'S
UPSTAIRS WITH MORNING SICKNESS.
PROBABLY THE ONLY POSITIVE THING
THAT'S COME OUT OF THIS
PREGNANCY.
EDWARD: YOU KNOW,
THERE'S STILL A CHANCE THAT
WE CAN KEEP THIS WHOLE THING
UNDER WRAPS.
NOBODY OUTSIDE THE FAMILY NEEDS
TO KNOW THAT CARLY IS CARRYING
SONNY'S CHILD.
[EMILY COUGHS]
ALAN: EMILY?
EMILY: I -- I THOUGHT THAT
EVERYBODY AT KELLY'S KNEW.
EDWARD: DID YOU TELL THEM?
A.J.: WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
WE CAN'T CONTROL WHAT SONNY
DOES.
HE'S BOUND TO TELL SOMEONE.
EDWARD: OH, IT REALLY DOESN'T
MATTER ANYWAY.
WHAT DOES COUNT IS THAT WE KEEP
SONNY AWAY FROM MICHAEL SO THAT
HE HAS NO CLAIM WHATSOEVER
TO THE CHILD THAT HE'S HAVING
WITH CARLY.
ALAN: I DON'T SEE HOW THAT'S
POSSIBLE.
IF HE'S THE FATHER, HE HAS
CERTAIN RIGHTS.
EDWARD: IF YOU'RE GOING
TO CONTRADICT ME, ALAN,
THEN JUST STAY OUT OF IT.
AND THAT INCLUDES THE REST
OF YOU, TOO.
LILA: EDWARD, PLEASE.
LET'S NOT TURN THIS INTO ANOTHER
WAR BETWEEN OURSELVES.
SALLY: EXCUSE ME, SIR.
THIS HAS JUST ARRIVED FOR CARLY.
EDWARD: OH, THANK YOU, SALLY.
HERE. WELL DONE.
TAKE THAT, IF YOU WILL, PLEASE.
ALAN: YOU CAN'T OPEN THAT,
FATHER.
IT'S CARLY'S.
EDWARD: I INSTRUCTED
THE STAFF TO BRING ALL
OF HER MAIL AND MESSAGES
DIRECTLY TO ME.
EMILY: GRANDFATHER, I THINK
IT'S ILLEGAL TO DO THAT,
TO OPEN SOMEONE'S MAIL.
EDWARD: SONNY CORINTHOS PAYS
NO ATTENTION TO THE LAW, SO WHY
SHOULD WE?
WHATEVER HE HAS UP HIS SLEEVE,
WE MUST BE PREPARED.
OH.
HE'S WASTED NO TIME.
HERE IT IS.
A COURT ORDER FOR A PATERNITY
TEST.

HANNAH: AHEM.
HEY.
ROY: HEY.
YOU LOOK NICE.
HANNAH: OH, THANKS.
I'M MEETING A FRIEND FOR LUNCH.
ROY: OH, YEAH?
A FEMALE FRIEND?
HANNAH: IF YOU'RE ASKING
IF I'VE STARTED DATING AGAIN,
THE ANSWER IS NO.
ROY: WELL, JUST WANT TO KEEP
UP ON THINGS.
HANNAH: ANYWAYS, I SHOULDN'T
EVENE HERE, BUT I WANTED
TO THANK YOU FOR GETTING RID
OF THAT JERK THE OTHER NIGHT.
ROY: OH, AS IF I WAS GOING
TO LET SOME RACIST WITH A BUZZ
ON HARASS MY DAUGHTER.
HANNAH: ANYWAYS, I JUST
WANTED TO TELL YOU, THANK YOU.
ROY: YOU'RE MORE THAN
WELCOME.
SO, WHAT HAS YOU FEELING
SO UPSET?
HANNAH: I'M FINE.
ROY: YOU'RE PRETENDING TO BE
FINE AND YOU'RE DOING A PRETTY
GOOD JOB, BUT
WHAT'S WRONG?
HANNAH: REMEMBER ALL THOSE
TIMES YOU TOLD ME THAT SONNY
NEVER LOVED ME?
WELL, I JUST FOUND OUT THAT
HE GOT CARLY PREGNANT.
ROY: OH, BABY.
HEY.

STEFAN: KEEP THE MEN
ON ALERT.
AS SOON AS I FIND OUT WHERE
HELENA HAS TAKEN LUCKY,
WE'LL SCHEDULE ANOTHER RESCUE
ATTEMPT.
MAN: HAVE YOU LEARNED WHY
SHE MOVED HIM FROM THE FARM
IN NOVA SCOTIA?
STEFAN: I TRIGGERED THE ALARM
THE FIRST TIME I WAS THERE.
HELENA MUST'VE ASSUMED THERE HAD
BEEN AN INTRUDER AND EVACUATED
AS SOON AS SHE COULD.
MAN: THEN WE MUST MOVE
QUICKLY.
IF HELENA SUSPECTS THAT SHE'S
BEING FOLLOWED --
STEFAN: SHE WILL DISPOSE
OF THE BOY
WITHOUT HESITATION.

MAC: HI.
LAURA: HI.
MAC: SORRY TO BOTHER YOU.
I JUST -- I WAS WONDERING
IF YOU HEARD FROM LUKE.
LAURA: ACTUALLY, I HAVE.
MAC: DID HE MENTION WHEN
HE WAS COMING HOME?
LAURA: NO, HE DIDN'T.
MAC: DID YOU ASK HIM
IF HE WAS WITH FELICIA?
LAURA: NO.
JUST DIDN'T COME UP.
MAC: THAT'S OK, BECAUSE
I DID.
FELICIA CALLED TO TALK
TO THE GIRLS, SO I ASKED
HER POINT-BLANK IF SHE WAS
WITH LUKE.
SHE COULDN'T DENY IT, LAURA.
THEY'RE TOGETHER.

MAC: I'M SORRY.
I'M SORRY.
I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY I'M HERE.
LAURA: WAIT, WAIT.
I KNOW WHY YOU'RE HERE.
YOU LOVE YOUR WIFE AND YOU'RE
HURT, AND YOU'RE TRYING
TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENED.
MAC: I'VE KNOWN FOR A WHILE.
YOU KNOW, I EVEN HAVE EVIDENCE
THAT THEY WERE INVOLVED.
BUT TO HEAR FELICIA ADMIT THAT
SHE LEFT TOWN WITH HIM --
LAURA: I'M SORRY.
DID SHE OFFER ANY EXPLANATION?
MAC: I DIDN'T WANT
TO HEAR IT.
I MEAN, ALL THAT MATTERED TO ME
WAS THAT I ASKED HER TO COME
HOME AND SHE REFUSED.
FELICIA REACHED OUT TO LUKE
AFTER LUCKY DIED.
I MEAN, ACCORDING TO HER, IT WAS
TO TRY AND HELP HIM.
BUT, LAURA, IT HAS GONE WAY PAST
THAT.
I'M CERTAIN OF IT.
LAURA: WELL,
FOR WHATEVER IT'S WORTH, I DO
KNOW THAT THEY'RE NOT
ON A PLEASURE TRIP.
MAC: HOW?
LAURA: WHEN LUKE CALLED,
I COULD TELL BY THE TONE
IN HIS VOICE THAT HE'S WORKING
ON SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT.
MAC: FELICIA SAID THE SAME
THING.
LAURA: OK.
OK, SO, YOU KNOW, MAYBE THAT
MEANS SOMETHING.
MAYBE IT DOESN'T.
I DON'T KNOW.
IT'S POSSIBLE THAT SHE IS
TELLING THE TRUTH AND THAT
SHE AND LUKE ARE JUST OFF
ON SOME ADVENTURE TOGETHER
AND THAT'S ALL THERE IS TO IT.
MAC: YOU KNOW, FELICIA USED
GO OFF ON ADVENTURES WITH ME.
LAURA: YEAH, I KNOW
THE FEELING.
MAC: THANKS FOR LISTENING.
I'LL TRY NOT TO BOTHER
YOU AGAIN.
LAURA: PLEASE.
YOU'RE NOT BOTHERING ME.
YOU'RE WELCOME TO COME BY ANY
TIME, FOR ANY REASON.

ROY: SO HOW'D YOU FIND OUT
ABOUT SONNY AND CARLY?
HANNAH: I HEARD EMILY
QUARTERMAINE DISCUSSING IT
AT KELLY'S.
THEN I WENT TO SONNY,
AND AND HE CONFIRMED IT.
ROY: WELL, I KNOW HOW BAD IT
MUST MAKE YOU FEEL, BUT AT LEAST
NOW YOU KNOW THE TRUTH.
HANNAH: YEAH, BUT WHAT IS
THE TRUTH?
WHAT SONNY TOLD ME TODAY?
OR THE TRUTH THAT I SAW
IN HIS EYES BEFORE HE FOUND OUT
I WAS AN AGENT?
DAD, THIS MAN LOVED ME.
NOBODY CAN TAKE THAT AWAY
FROM ME.
ROY: SWEETIE, DO YOU HAVE ANY
IDEA HOW GOOD HE IS AT DECEIVING
PEOPLE?
HANNAH: YOU NEVER SAW THE WAY
HE'D LOOK AT ME.
OR THE THINGS THAT HE WOULD SAY
TO ME.
ROY: NO, I DIDN'T.
HANNAH: IF HE WAS LYING,
I WOULD'VE KNOWN.
ROY: AFTER HE FOUND OUT
YOU WERE AN AGENT, DID
HE LET ON?
NO, HE DIDN'T.
IF THAT'S NOT A LIE, WHAT IS IT?
SEE -- SEE, THE THING THAT MAKES
ME CRAZY --
I SEE HOW SPECIAL YOU ARE.
YOU DON'T, MAYBE, BUT I DO.
YOU'RE SMART, YOU'RE BRAVE,
YOU'RE TOUGH, YOU'RE COMPETENT.
YOU HAVE A GOOD HEART.
YOU'RE LIKE -- YOU'RE THIS
WONDERFUL PERSON, AND
YOU DESERVE A MAN WHO WILL HONOR
THOSE THINGS IN YOU.
I MAY NOT KNOW MUCH
IN THE WORLD, BUT ONE THING
I KNOW -- SONNY CORINTHOS IS NOT
THAT MAN.

EDWARD: WHAT?
OH, ALL RIGHT.
DAMN IT!
OUR LAWYERS SAY THAT WE DON'T
HAVE A CHOICE.
CARLY MUST REPORT WITHIN
48 HOURS FOR THAT PATERNITY
TEST.
MONICA: WELL, LISTEN,
THIS MIGHT JUST WORK
IN OUR FAVOR.
AS PROMISCUOUS AS CARLY'S BEEN,
IT MIGHT NOT BE SONNY'S
AFTER ALL.
A.J.: IT'S NOT AS IF SHE HAD
A NEW MAN EVERY NIGHT.
MOST OF THE TIME, I KNEW EXACTLY
WHERE SHE WAS.
EMILY: OH, COME ON, A.J.
DO YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT?
A.J.: PLEASE, EM,
NO COMMENTS, ALL RIGHT?
JUST LISTEN.
EMILY: LOOK, I'M NOT TRYING
TO HURT YOU.
THIS ISN'T EASY FOR ME, EITHER.
A.J.: I KNOW, OK?
I'M SORRY.
IT'S JUST IF SONNY WEREN'T SURE,
HE WOULD NEVER ORDER THIS
PATERNITY TEST.
NOW, THIS BABY IS HIS.
THERE'S NO POINT IN
QUESTIONING IT.
EDWARD: ALL RIGHT.
WE'LL ACCEPT THAT.
WHAT WE HAVE TO DO NOW IS JUST
CLOSE RANKS AROUND CARLY
AND GIVE HER ALL THE SUPPORT
WE CAN.
ALAN: WHAT?
MONICA: DON'T BE RIDICULOUS.
EMILY: SHE'S NOT RESTING
ON MY SHOULDER.
EDWARD: DON'T YOU REALIZE
THAT IF SHE RUNS TO SONNY
SHE WILL TAKE MICHAEL WITH HER?
NOW, WE HAVE TO PROTECT THAT
LITTLE BOY FROM SONNY CORINTHOS,
EVEN IF IT MEANS PROTECTING
CARLY AT THE SAME TIME.

NIKOLAS: SO IS RICHARD STILL
WORKING AT "VOGUE"?
OH, YEAH, YEAH, I KNEW HIM BACK
WHEN I WAS WORKING AT DECEPTION
COSMETICS.
JUAN: I CAN TAKE THAT NOW.
NIKOLAS: YOU KNOW,
CAN YOU HOLD ON A MINUTE, KIM?
THANK YOU.
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT CALL,
JUAN, OK?
BACK OFF.
ANYWAY, YOU KNOW, I'M GLAD
I PICKED UP, YOU KNOW?
I WILL TELL YOU WHAT, I'LL MAKE
SURE THAT NED GETS BACK
TO YOU BY THE END OF BUSINESS
TODAY.
OK?
JUAN: YOU CAN'T PROMISE THAT.
NIKOLAS: YEAH, ACTUALLY,
YOU KNOW, I STARTED A FEW
DAYS AGO.
YEAH, I AM THE NEW DIRECTOR
FOR PUBLIC RELATIONS FOR L&B
ENTERTAINMENT.
UH-HUH.
YEAH, YOU KNOW, ACTUALLY,
I'M PRETTY HAPPY ABOUT IT
MYSELF, YEAH.
WELL, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

NIKOLAS: OK, WELL, IT WAS
NICE CATCHING UP WITH YOU, TOO.
ALL RIGHT.
BYE-BYE.
JUAN: YOU KNOW, YOU'RE
TOTALLY OUT OF LINE.
NIKOLAS: REALLY?
JUAN: YEAH.
THIS IS A BUSINESS,
NOT A PLAYGROUND FOR SPOILED
RICH KIDS.
NIKOLAS: WELL, WHAT MAKES
YOU THINK I'M PLAYING, JUAN?
JUAN: WHAT WAS IT THAT
YOU JUST TOLD HER?
YOU'RE THE NEW DIRECTOR
OF PUBLIC RELATIONS?
THAT'S A TOTAL CROCK.
NIKOLAS: WELL, I'M AFRAID
NOT, JUAN.
THAT'S MY NEW TITLE.
JUAN: SINCE WHEN?
NIKOLAS: THE OTHER DAY, OK?
I FINALIZED IT WITH NED.
JUAN: YEAH, WELL, NED DIDN'T
SAY ANYTHING TO ME ABOUT IT.
NIKOLAS: SO, WHAT DOES THAT
MEAN?
NED'S NOT ALLOWED TO HIRE
ANYBODY WITHOUT YOUR APPROVAL?
JUAN: I'M NOT JUST
THE JANITOR HERE, OK?
I HAPPEN TO BE THE PERSON THAT
FOUND THIS SPACE, AND UNTIL
I GET WORD FROM NED, YOU DON'T
PICK UP A PHONE.
ELIZABETH: HELLO.
NIKOLAS: HI.
ELIZABETH: HI.
I'M JUST DROPPING OFF THIS BOOK
I BORROWED FROM EMILY.
WHERE'S THE BEST PLACE
TO LEAVE IT?
JUAN: THAT TABLE'S GREAT.
I'LL MAKE SURE SHE GETS IT.
ELIZABETH: OK.
SO, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
JUAN: EXCUSE ME.
I DON'T WANT TO HEAR THIS AGAIN.
ELIZABETH: WHAT'S WRONG
WITH JUAN?
NIKOLAS: WELL, I GUESS HE'S
UPSET WITH WHERE I WORK.
ELIZABETH: WHERE'S THAT?
NIKOLAS: HERE.

EDWARD: IT'S NICE, ISN'T IT?
TAGGERT: YEAH.
I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING QUITE
LIKE IT.
EDWARD: WELL, THAT'S
BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING QUITE
LIKE IT.
YOU SEE, THAT'S A ONE-OF-A-KIND
ORIGINAL FROM THE MING DYNASTY.
AND IT'S WORTH OVER $200,000.
TAGGERT: 200,000 -- WOW.
OW.
REMIND ME TO STOP BY NEXT TIME
YOU HAVE A GARAGE SALE.
EDWARD: YOU KNOW, I DON'T
KNOW ABOUT YOU, LIEUTENANT,
BUT I HAVE ALWAYS ENJOYED BEING
SURROUNDED BY BEAUTIFUL THINGS.
TAGGERT: YEAH, I HAVE
A "DIRTY HARRY" POSTER
ON MY WALL.
IT ALMOST BRINGS A TEAR
TO MY EYE EVERY TIME I LOOK
AT IT.
EDWARD: THAT'S VERY AMUSING.
SAY, COULD I --
COULD I ASK YOU A PERSONAL
QUESTION?
TAGGERT: YOU COULD TRY.
EDWARD: HOW MUCH MONEY DO
YOU MAKE IN A YEAR?
TAGGERT: LET'S JUST PUT IT
THIS WAY -- THE GAS BILL
ON YOUR BENTLEY?
EDWARD: MM-HMM?
TAGGERT: PROBABLY ABOUT
COVERS IT.
EDWARD: OH, OF COURSE.
PUBLIC SERVICE IS RARELY
AS LUCRATIVE AS IT SHOULD
BE, HMM?
TAGGERT: IS THAT WHY
YOU CALLED ME HERE, EDWARD?
TO DISCUSS MY SALARY?
EDWARD: AS A MATTER OF FACT,
I DID.
I WOULD LIKE TO INCREASE
YOUR SALARY BY --
OH, WELL, TO BE HONEST, YOU CAN
NAME THE FIGURE.
TAGGERT: HMM.
IN EXCHANGE FOR WHAT?
EDWARD: GIVING ME EVERYTHING
YOU CAN ON SONNY CORINTHOS.

HANNAH: I BETRAYED SONNY.
I LIED TO HIM ABOUT WHO I WAS
AND WHY I WAS THERE.
THE MAN HAS A TERRIBLE TEMPER
AND WILL LASH OUT WHEN HE'S
HURTING.
THAT'S WHY HE SLEPT WITH CARLY,
AS PAYBACK TO PUNISH ME.
ROY: OK, OK, BUT HOW CAN
YOU STILL CARE ABOUT
A GUY -- YOU -- HOW CAN
YOU STILL CARE ABOUT A GUY WHO
WOULD USE SEX LIKE THAT --
FOR REVENGE, BASICALLY?
HANNAH: YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND.
THE MAN HAS BEEN HURT HIS ENTIRE
LIFE.
ROY: WHICH IS A PROBLEM,
DON'T YOU THINK?
MAYBE THAT'S WHY HE NEVER REALLY
LOVED YOU.
MAYBE HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW
TO LOVE.
HANNAH: OK, WELL,
MAYBE THAT'S TRUE.
I DON'T KNOW.
BUT, YOU KNOW, I LOVED HIM
ENOUGH FOR THE BOTH OF US.
ROY: THAT'S INSANE.
HE'S DONE EVERYTHING HE POSSIBLY
COULD TO SHOW YOU THE DOOR.
HANNAH: THAT'S NOT HOW LOVE
IS, DAD.
YOU CAN'T HELP WHAT YOU'RE
FEELING.
ROY: I KNOW.
YOU'RE RIGHT.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
ROY: BELIEVE ME, IF I COULD
SAY THE MAGIC WORD TO MAKE IT --
BOBBIE: OH.
ROY: HI.
BOBBIE: I'M SORRY.
I DIDN'T REALIZE --
HANNAH: THIS IS NOT WHAT IT
LOOKS LIKE.
BOBBIE: OH, THAT'S OK.
I KNOW YOU'RE ROY'S DAUGHTER.

LAURA: HI, LUKE.
IT'S LAURA.
I KNOW YOU'VE BEEN OUT OF TOWN
FOR A WHILE.
ANYWAYS,
LULU HAS A DANCE RECITAL NEXT
WEEK, AND IF YOU'RE IN TOWN,
I THINK IT WOULD MEAN A LOT
TO HER IF YOU WERE THERE.
SO PLEASE GIVE US A CALL.
BYE.
[DOORBELL RINGS]
LAURA: YOU'RE BACK.

LAURA: I MISSED YOU.
I'M GLAD YOU'RE BACK.
STEFAN: AHEM.
I MISSED YOU, TOO.
LAURA: UM -- WAS YOUR TRIP
SUCCESSFUL?
STEFAN: UNFORTUNATELY, NO.
LAURA: I DON'T THINK I'VE
EVER SEEN YOU SO UPSET OVER
A BUSINESS DEAL.
STEFAN: I WAS --
I WAS VERY CLOSE TO MEETING
MY OBJECTIVE FOR THIS TRIP.
THE SUCCESS WOULD HAVE MEANT
A GREAT DEAL TO ME.
LAURA: WELL, IT'S JUST
A BUSINESS DEAL.
I MEAN, WOULD IT BE SO TERRIBLE
IF IT DIDN'T WORK OUT?
STEFAN: YES, IT WOULD.

ELIZABETH: YOU'RE GOING TO BE
WORKING AT L&B?
HOW'D THAT HAPPEN?
NIKOLAS: WELL, I VISITED
ALEXIS THE OTHER DAY AND JUST
MENTIONED THAT, YOU KNOW,
I WANTED TO DO SOMETHING
ON MY OWN ASIDE FROM
THE CASSADINES.
YOU KNOW, AND SHE MENTIONED --
WELL, SHE SUGGESTED THAT I WORK
HERE AND SET UP A MEETING
WITH NED.
ELIZABETH: OK.
NO OFFENSE, BUT I DIDN'T THINK
THE MUSIC BUSINESS WAS
YOUR THING.
OR FASHION, FOR THAT MATTER.
NIKOLAS: OK.
DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN I WORKED
P.R. FOR KATHERINE?
ELIZABETH: -HMM.
NIKOLAS: I GOT HOOKED.
AND, YOU KNOW, L&B NEEDS SOMEONE
TO HANDLE P.R. FULL-TIME.
NED THOUGHT I COULD DO IT,
AND, YOU KNOW, IT'S EXACTLY WHAT
I WANTED -- SOMETHING TO PROVE
MYSELF.
ELIZABETH: OH, THEN I'M HAPPY
FOR YOU, NIKOLAS.
CONGRATULATIONS.
NIKOLAS: THANK YOU.
ELIZABETH: ALTHOUGH I CAN'T
HELP BUT FEELING A LITTLE SORRY
FOR JUAN.
NIKOLAS: WHAT, WORKING
WITH SOMEONE HE DOESN'T LIKE?
ELIZABETH: JUAN WANTS A SHOT
AT THE MUSIC BUSINESS,
AND I GUESS HE PROBABLY THINKS
THAT YOU'RE GOING TO GET
IN HIS WAY.
YOU KNOW, I MEAN, HE'S JUST
STARTING OUT AND YOU'RE MOVING
IN WITH A REALLY BIG TITLE.
YOU THINK MAYBE YOU CAN TRY NOT
TO REMIND HIM OF THAT TOO OFTEN?
NIKOLAS: I'LL BE SENSITIVE
TO HIS FEELINGS, OK?
ELIZABETH: THAT WOULD BE
NICE.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
JUAN: GOOD AFTERNOON. L&B.
YEAH, COULD YOU HOLD FOR ONE
SECOND?
THANKS.
I FORGOT TO TELL YOU THAT NED
WON'T BE COMING IN TODAY.
NIKOLAS: SO?
JUAN: SO YOU CAN GO HOME
AT ANY TIME.
NIKOLAS: WOW, ELIZABETH,
DID YOU HEAR THAT?
JUAN HERE GAVE ME THE DAY OFF.
ELIZABETH: HMM. CUSHY JOB.
NIKOLAS: CAN I GIVE
YOU A RIDE HOME?
ELIZABETH: OH, NO, THANKS.
IT'S AN EASY WALK TO KELLY'S.
NIKOLAS: OK.
ELIZABETH: OK.
SEE YOU.
JUAN: BYE.
NIKOLAS: WELL, BYE, JUAN.
JUAN: THANKS FOR HOLDING.
HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

TAGGERT: TWO Gs.
YOU KNOW, NOTHING WOULD PLEASE
ME MORE THAN PUTTING THE SQUEEZE
ON SONNY CORINTHOS.
BUT JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY,
WHY DOES IT MATTER TO YOU?
EDWARD: WELL, IT'S A FAMILY
ISSUE, LIEUTENANT.
DETAILS AREN'T IMPORTANT.
TAGGERT: OH, DETAILS ARE
THE MOST INTERESTING PART
OF MY JOB, EDWARD.
EDWARD: I AM PREPARED
TO REWARD YOU HANDSOMELY FOR ANY
INFORMATION YOU CAN GIVE ME
ABOUT SONNY CORINTHOS.
TAGGERT: HEIGHT,
WEIGHT, UNUSUAL BIRTHMARKS?
EDWARD: A COMPLETE LIST
OF ERY ILLEGAL ACTIVITY THAT
HE'S EVER BEEN INVOLVED WITH,
INCLUDING THAT -- THAT
STRIP JOINT THAT HE USED TO RUN.
TAGGERT: I CAN DO THAT.
IT WOULDN'T BE THAT HARD.
THE BAD NEWS IS, THOUGH,
IT WOULDN'T DO YOU ANY GOOD.
EDWARD: WHY NOT?
TAGGERT: WE DON'T HAVE ENOUGH
EVIDENCE TO CONVICT SONNY
OF ANYTHING.
EDWARD: YOU'VE BEEN
INVESTIGATING THAT MAN
FOR YEARS.
TAGGERT: YEAH, WELL, THE GUY
IS A MASTER AT PLAYING
THE SYSTEM.
YOU SEE, HE'S CREATED THIS WHOLE
ORGANIZATION THAT COMPLETELY
ISOLATES HIM FROM ANY CRIMINAL
ACTIVITIES.
EDWARD: WELL, WHAT ABOUT
THE FACT THAT HIS PREGNANT WIFE
DIED IN THAT CAR BOMBING?
TAGGERT: OH, YEAH.
THAT WAS A TRAGEDY.
LEGALLY, IT WASN'T HIS FAULT.
EDWARD: AND WASN'T HE BROUGHT
UP ON RICO CHARGES?
TAGGERT: BEAT THEM BOTH
TIMES.
EDWARD: HMM.
WELL, THERE'S ALWAYS A WAY,
LIEUTENANT.
AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE
THE INFORMATION THAT I WANT,
MAKE IT UP.
TAGGERT: ARE YOU SAYING FRAME
SONNY FOR A CRIME HE DIDN'T
COMMIT?
EDWARD: DRASTIC MEASURES
FOR DRASTIC TIMES.
TAGGERT: YOU KNOW, I WILL BE
HONEST WITH YOU.
I HAVE FANTASIZED ABOUT THAT
A COUPLE OF TIMES.
EDWARD: WELL, THEN,
ACT ON IT.
THE CITY WILL BE BETTER OFF,
AND YOU'LL GET RICH
IN THE PROCESS, HUH?
TAGGERT: WELL, THIS IS --
THIS IS A VERY INTERESTING DEAL,
MR. QUARTERMAINE.
IT'S -- AHEM -- MOST ATTRACTIVE
ON A NUMBER OF LEVELS.
EDWARD: WELL, YOU KNOW,
YOU NEVER CAN GO WRONG
PROTECTING INNOCENT CITIZENS.
TAGGERT: EVEN IF YOU'RE
TAKING A PAYOFF?
EDWARD: THE WORD "BRIBE" WAS
NEVER MENTIONED.
I OFFERED YOU A SIMPLE BUSINESS
PROPOSITION.
THAT'S ALL.
TAGGERT: WELL, YOU KNOW,
I -- I HAVE ONE FOR YOU.
EDWARD: MM-HMM.
TAGGERT: YOU GO AFTER SONNY
ANY WAY YOU WANT.
I'M GOING TO BE BEHIND YOU 100%.
BUT YOU KNOW, JUST KEEP IT
LEGAL, OK?
BECAUSE OTHERWISE, I'LL HAVE
TO BUST YOU JUST LIKE EVERYBODY
ELSE.

HANNAH: YOU TOLD HER YOU WERE
MY FATHER?
ROY: YEAH.
I -- I DID.
I -- I TRUST HER.
HANNAH: I'M SURE MY FATHER
HAD HIS REASONS FOR TELLING YOU,
BOBBIE, BUT IT'S VERY,
VERY IMPORTANT THAT NO ONE KNOWS
WE'RE RELATED.
BOBBIE: OH.
OK.
WELL, YOU KNOW, THE ONLY REASON
I MENTIONED IT IS BECAUSE
YOU LOOKED AWFULLY UNCOMFORTABLE
WHEN I WALKED IN.
HANNAH: SO YOU'LL -- YOU'LL
KEEP IT QUIET, THOUGH, RIGHT?
BOBBIE: IF THAT'S WHAT
YOU WANT, SURE.
HANNAH: THANK YOU.
THANKS FOR LISTENING.
ROY: YEAH.
SORRY.
I'M SORRY ABOUT THIS.
BUT YOU KNOW, I'M HERE.
HANNAH: OH, I GUESS I SHOULD
OFFER CONGRATULATIONS.
I HEAR YOUR DAUGHTER AND SONNY
ARE GOING TO HAVE A BABY.
BOBBIE: WHAT WAS THAT ABOU
AND WHY IS SHE ASHAMED OF BEING
YOUR DAUGHTER?

LAURA: HAVE YOU TOLD NIKOLAS
THAT YOU'RE BACK?
STEFAN: I LEFT HIM A MESSAGE.
FORTUNATELY, HE WASN'T IN.
LAURA: WHY "FORTUNATELY"?
STEFAN: WE HADN'T FINISHED
OUR DISCUSSION ABOUT HIS JOB
AT L&B ENTERTAINMENT.
I DON'T EXPECT IT TO BE
A PLEASANT ONE.
LAURA: YOU KNOW SOMETHING?
NIKOLAS IS JUST TRYING TO MAKE
SOMETHING OF HIMSELF BY HIMSELF.
I MEAN, WHAT'S SO WRONG WITH HIM
DOING SOMETHING THAT HE ENJOYS?
STEFAN: WHY IS IT THAT
YOU CAN MAKE ME SEE THINGS
NO ONE ELSE CAN?
LAURA: YOU KNOW,
ANYBODY COULD'VE POINTED THAT
OUT TO YOU.
FOR SOME REASON, YOU'RE JUST
MORE WILLING TO HEAR IT FROM ME.
STEFAN: TRUE.
FROM THE MOMENT WE MET,
YOU -- YOU'VE ALWAYS MADE SENSE
TO ME, THOUGH.
LAURA: THINGS WERE
SO DIFFERENT ON THE ISLAND.
STEFAN: DO YOU REMEMBER
THAT -- THAT SMALL CAVE
WE DISCOVERED DOWN BY
THE BLUFFS?
LAURA: YEAH.
THE ONE WHERE WE NEARLY DROWNED.
STEFAN: IT WAS NEVER THAT
SERIOUS.
LAURA: YES, IT WAS.
YOU MISCALCULATED THE TIDES.
I KNOW.
STEFAN: ONLY THE FIRST TIME.
LAURA: YEAH, OK.
STEFAN: THEN IT BECAME
OUR OWN PRIVATE UNIVERSE.
LAURA: IT WAS AN ESCAPE,
THOUGH.
IT COULDN'T REALLY LAST.
STEFAN: NOW IT CAN.
IF YOU WANT IT TO.

ALAN: I REMEMBER WHEN
YOU WERE PREGNANT WITH A.J. AND
I THOUGHT RICK WEBBER WAS
THE FATHER.
ALL I HAD ON MY MIND WAS
REVENGE.
OH, GOD, MONICA.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A.J. GOES AFTER
SONNY?
MONICA: OH, NO.
HE'S NOT THAT FAR GONE,
ALAN, AT LEAST NOT YET.
ALAN: BUT THINGS ARE GOING
TO GET WORSE ONCE IT STARTS
TO CIRCULATE.
HE COULD START TO DRINK AGAIN,
MONICA.
MONICA: THAT IS WHAT I'VE
BEEN TRYING TO TELL YOU.
AND THAT IS WHY A.J.'S GOT
TO DIVORCE CARLY AND GET HER OUT
OF THIS HOUSE.
AND IF HE ACTS DECISIVELY,
HE MIGHT COME AWAY WITH THIS
WITH HIS REPUTATION INTACT.
ALAN: ANY IDEAS?
MONICA: WELL, BOBBIE HAS
OFFERED TO LET CARLY AND MICHAEL
MOVE IN WITH HER.
IF CARLY AGREES, IT COULD BE
A GOOD SOLUTION FOR EVERYBODY.
ALAN: A.J.'S NEVER GOING
TO GO FOR THAT.
SHARED CUSTODY IS OUT
OF THE QUESTION.
MONICA: I DIDN'T SAY IT WAS
A PERFECT ARRANGEMENT, BUT IT
MIGHT BE SOMETHING THAT WOULD
AT LEAST KEEP A.J. FROM GOING
INSANE.
A.J.: HMM.
SO I SEE THIS IS THE SUPPORT
I'VE BEEN HEARING SO MUCH ABOUT.

ROY: SO, YOU'RE
DEFENDING ME AGAINST MY OWN
DAUGHTER?
BOBBIE: WELL, HANNAH
OBVIOUSLY HAS SOME PROBLEM
ADMITTING THAT SHE IS
YOUR DAUGHTER, AND I THINK IT'S
SHAMEFUL.
AFTER ALL YOU'VE GIVEN HER,
I THINK YOU DESERVE A LITTLE
RESPECT AS HER FATHER.
ROY: WELL, I APPRECIATE
YOU STICKING UP FOR ME LIKE
THAT.
I LIKE TO HEAR HOW MUCH RESPECT
I DESERVE.
BUT THERE'S PROBABLY MORE TO IT
THAN YOU KNOW.
BOBBIE: OH.
WELL, THERE'S NO EXCUSE
FOR THE WAY SHE TREATED YOU.
ROY: IT'S HER CAREER.
IN HER LINE OF WORK,
HAVING AN EX-CON FOR A DAD IS
NOT EXACTLY AN ADVANTAGE.
BOBBIE: "IN HER LINE
OF WORK"?
SHE'S A WAITRESS.
ROY: WELL, THAT'S JUST
HER COVER.
MY DAUGHTER IS AN F.B.I. AGENT.

TAGGERT: HEY, I'M SORRY I'M
LATE.
DIET SODA, PLEASE?
BARTENDER: YOU GOT IT.
TAGGERT: I HAD TO STOP BY,
PAY THE QUARTERMAINES
A HOUSE CALL.
HANNAH: WHY THEM?
TAGGERT: EDWARD WANTED
TO GIVE ME SOME GET-RICH-QUICK
TIPS.
THANK YOU.
BARTENDER: YOU'RE WELCOME.
TAGGERT: THIS IS SERIOUS,
ISN'T IT?
THAT BAD? OK.
THE BEST THING TO DO IS TO GET
IT OUT INTO THE OPEN.
YOU KNOW, ONCE YOU SAY IT,
IT WON'T SEEM SO BAD.
HANNAH: SONNY SLEPT
WITH CARLY, AND SHE'S PREGNANT.
TAGGERT: AM I SUPPOSED TO BE
SHOCKED?
HANNAH: YOU DON'T LOOK
LIKE IT.
TAGGERT: WELL, I'M NOT.
ACTUALLY, IT -- IT EXPLAINS
A LOT.
EDWARD QUARTERMAINE JUST OFFERED
ME A SMALL FORTUNE TO DIG UP
SOME DIRT ON CORINTHOS,
AND HE WASN'T PARTICULAR ABOUT
HOW I GOT IT.
HANNAH: ARE YOU GOING
TO DO IT?
TAGGERT: I WAS HOPING
YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO ASK ME
THAT.
HANNAH: I'M SORRY.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WAS
THINKING.
I'M SORRY.
TAGGERT: IT'S NO MATTER.
BESIDES, IF I HAD SOME DIRT
ON CORINTHOS, DON'T YOU THINK
I'D USE IT TO BUST HIS BUTT
MYSELF?
HANNAH: OH, COME ON, TAGGERT.
HE'S TOO SLICK FOR ALL OF US.
TAGGERT: NO.
I'M NOT BUYING INTO THAT.
HANNAH: HAVE YOU PUT HIM
AWAY YET?
TAGGERT: WELL, I COULD
WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM
MY FRIENDS.
HANNAH: WHAT THE HELL DOES
THAT MEAN?
TAGGERT: WELL, YOU KNOW,
YOU'VE BEEN LIVING WITH HIM
FOR THE PAST COUPLE OF MONTHS.
I'M SURE YOU'VE SEEN SOMETHING
THAT COULD PUT HIM BEHIND
BARS -- YOU KNOW, THROW YOUR PAL
A BONE.
HANNAH: RIGHT, SO SONNY'S
UNFAITHFUL, SO I'M SUPPOSED
TO BUST HIM?
TAGGERT: WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.
I DIDN'T SAY THAT.
HANNAH: LOOK, IF YOU WANT
TO CONTINUE TO PUT SONNY
IN JAIL, YOU GO AHEAD.
BUT DON'T YOU DARE TRY TO USE ME
TO DO THAT.

TAGGERT: YOU'RE TAKING THIS
WRONG WAY.
I'M NOT TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE
OF YOU.
HANNAH: WELL, WHAT ELSE WOULD
YOU CALL IT?
TAGGERT: A JOKE?
HANNAH: AREN'T THOSE SUPPOSED
TO BE FUNNY?
TAGGERT: WELL, I WAS TRYING
TO LIGHTEN UP THE SITUATION.
I'M SORRY IF IT CAME OUT
THE WRONG WAY.
HANNAH: WELL, I SHOULDN'T
HAVE GONE OFF ON YOU LIKE THAT.
I SHOULD'VE KNOWN YOU'D BE
ON MY SIDE, RIGHT?
TAGGERT: WELL, YOU GOT
A RIGHT TO BE EMOTIONALLY FRAYED
AROUND THE EDGES.
YOU LOVED THE MAN, AND ALL
HE DID WAS PLAY GAMES WITH YOU.
HANNAH: IF SONNY NEVER LOVED
ME, HE WOULDN'T HAVE CARED
SO MUCH WHEN HE FOUND OUT I WAS
AN AGENT.
HE WOULD'VE BEEN ANGRY BUT NOT
SHATTERED THE WAY HE WAS.
THAT'S WHY HE SLEPT
WITH CARLY -- TO PUNISH ME
AND TO HURT ME THE WAY
I HURT HIM.
TAGGERT: OH.
WELL, THAT'S ONE INTERPRETATION.
HANNAH: WHAT, YOU HAVE
ANOTHER?
TAGGERT: YEAH.
THEY'RE BOTH LYING CREEPS THAT
DESERVE EACH OTHER.
HANNAH: WHY DID I ASK?
TAGGERT: YOU KNOW,
IT'S SO NICE THAT YOU'RE
SO UNDERSTANDING ABOUT SONNY'S
MOTIVES.
BUT SOMETIMES UNDERSTANDING CAN
GO TOO FAR.
HANNAH: YOU KNOW WHAT,
TAGGERT?
LET'S JUST DROP IT BECAUSE WE'RE
NOT GOING TO AGREE, SO WHY
BOTHER?
TAGGERT: OH, SO YOU MEAN
TO TELL ME YOU'RE NOT JUST,
LIKE, A LITTLE TICKED?
YOU'RE NOT A LITTLE MAD AT HIM?
HANNAH: YES.
YES, I AM MAD.
SO WHAT?
WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO
ABOUT IT?
TAGGERT: SOHEN GET IT OUT!
YOU KNOW, POUND YOUR FISTS,
SCREAM, YELL, TELL EVERYBODY
YOU KNOW SONNY'S A LOW-LYING
SCUM THAT HE IS.
HANNAH: DO YOU HONESTLY THINK
THAT'S GOING TO MAKE ME FEEL
BETTER?
TAGGERT: I ABSOLUTELY
GUARANTEE IT.

BOBBIE: HANNAH'S A FEDERAL
AGENT?
ROY: YEAH.
SHE CAME TO PORT CHARLES TO GET
EVIDENCE AGAINST SONNY,
AND UNFORTUNATELY, SHE FELL
IN LOVE WITH HIM ALONG THE WAY.
BOBBIE: OH.
ROY: HMM.
BOBBIE: SO WHERE WAS I WHEN
ALL OF THIS WAS GOING ON?
I MEAN, CARLY MUST'VE KNOWN
ABOUT THIS.
WHY DIDN'T SHE TELL ME?
ROY: WELL, YOU'D HAVE
TO ASK HER.
HANNAH IS NOT IN THE HABIT
OF TELLING THE WORLD ABOUT
HER TROUBLES, AND
I'M SURE SONNY ISN'T, EITHER.
BOBBIE: WELL, I GET THAT IT
WAS HANNAH'S JOB, BUT MOVING
IN WITH A PERSON FOR THE SOLE
PURPOSE OF PUTTING THEM IN JAIL
JUST --
ROY: YEAH.
BOBBIE: DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT
TO ME UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.
ROY: WELL, THE ASSIGNMENT --
IT DIDN'T INCLUDE THE IDEA THAT
SHE'D LIVE WITH HIM.
THAT -- THAT SORT OF HAPPENS.
SHE JUST FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM
DESPITE HERSELF.
BOBBIE: WELL, YOU KNOW,
MAYBE I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM
WITH UNDERCOVER WORK IN GENERAL
BECAUSE SECRETS AND LIES -- IT
JUST SEEMS TO ME AS THOUGH
THEY CAUSE MORE PROBLEMS THAN
THEY SOLVE.
ROY: YEAH.
IT'S PROBABLY NOT SUCH AN EASY
LIFE.
BOBBIE: SO DO YOU SUPPOSE
THAT HANNAH HAD SOMETHING TO DO
WITH JERRY'S ARREST?
BECAUSE SHE WAS LIVING
WITH SONNY AT THE TIME, SO MAYBE
SHE GOT ACCESS TO SOME KIND
OF INFORMATION.
ROY: I DON'T THINK I EVER
TALKED TO HER ABOUT IT.
BOBBIE: OH.
OF COURSE. I'M SORRY.
I MEAN, JUST BECAUSE SHE'S
YOUR DAUGHTER DOESN'T MEAN SHE'S
GOING TO SHARE CLASSIFIED
INFORMATION WITH YOU.
ROY: WHAT DO YOU THINK --
A LITTLE EARLY FOR A DRINK,
MAYBE?
YOU NEVER --
YOU NEVER TOLD ME WHY YOU CAME
OVER.
BOBBIE: I WANTED TO GIVE
YOU A CARLY UPDATE.
ROY: MM-HMM.
BOBBIE: I ASKED HER
IF SHE AND MICHAEL WOULD MOVE
IN WITH ME, AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT
MIGHT HAPPEN.
ROY: WELL, YOU EVER HEARD
THE PHRASE, "BE CAREFUL WHAT
YOU WISH FOR"?
BOBBIE: WELL, CARLY I CAN
HANDLE, BUT WHAT I'M ACTUALLY
CONCERNED ABOUT RIGHT NOW IS HOW
CARLY AND HANNAH FEEL ABOUT EACH
OTHER.
ROY: IT'S PRETTY CLEAR.
THEY BASICALLY HATE EACH OTHER'S
GUTS.
BOBBIE: YEAH.
SO NEXT TIME THEY FIGHT --
AND YOU KNOW THEY WILL --
YOU ARE GOING TO BE TEMPTED
TO TAKE HANNAH'S SIDE AND I'M
GOING TO BE TEMPTED TO DEFEND
CARLY, AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT,
WE'RE GOING TO BE FIGHTING
FOR NO REASON.
ROY: NO, NO, NO.
NO, I REFUSE TO ARGUE
WITH YOU ABOUT OUR CHILDREN.
BOBBIE: HMM.
WELL, THAT'S HARDER TO AVOID
THAN YOU THINK, SO
WHY DON'T WE MAKE A PACT THAT
NO MATTER HOW TENSE IT GETS
BETWEEN OUR DAUGHTERS, WE WILL
NOT TAKE SIDES?
ROY: SHAKE ON IT.
YOU KNOW, I'VE SEEN YOUR TEMPER,
AND I DON'T WANT TO BE
ONHE RECEIVING END OF IT
AGAIN.
BOBBIE: WELL, YOU ALWAYS WERE
SMART, ROY.
AND I'M GLAD TO SEE THAT HASN'T
CHANGED.
ROY: SEE YOU.

JUAN: YEAH.
I'LL MAKE SURE HE GETS IT.
PROBLEM.
OK.
BYE.
[DOOR OPENS]
EMILY: HEY!
JUAN: HEY.
EMILY: WHAT'S WRONG?
JUAN: UM --
NED HIRED NIKOLAS TO WORK
AT L&B.
EMILY: REALLY?
DOG WHAT?
JUAN: DIRECTOR OF PUBLIC
RELATIONS.
EMILY: OH.
WELL, IT DOESN'T MATTER, JUAN.
I MEAN, HE KNOWS HOW IMPORTANT
YOU ARE TO THIS COMPANY.
JUAN: WELL, WHY DIDN'T
HE TELL ME HIMSELF?
WHY DID I HAVE TO FIND OUT
FROM NIKOLAS AND WIND UP FEELING
LIKE A JERK?
EMILY: WELL, YOU GUYS AREN'T
EXACTLY IN COMPETITION.
BESIDES, NIKOLAS KIND OF HAS
A LITTLE MORE EXPERIENCE
IN PUBLIC RELATIONS, YOU KNOW?
JUAN: YEAH, BUT I'D ALWAYS
HOPED THAT NED WOULD TEACH ME
THE BUSINESS.
YOU KNOW, NOW HE'S GOING TO BE
WORKING WITH NIKOLAS AND GIVING
HIM ALL THAT INFORMATION
AND THAT KNOWLEDGE.
EMILY: WELL,
YOU COULD ALWAYS GET NED'S
ATTENTION IN A DIFFERENT WAY
BY DOING SOMETHING THAT NIKOLAS
COULD NEVER DO.
JUAN: YOU MEAN BY SINGING.
EMILY: EXACTLY.

A.J.: WOW.
YOUR FAITH IN ME IS TOUCHING.
ACCORDING TO YOU, I'M ONE STEP
AWAY FROM FERNCLIFF.
MONICA: I DIDN'T MEAN IT THAT
WAY, A.J.
A.J.: OF COURSE YOU DID.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
ALL THIS NONSENSE ABOUT SUPPORT
IS JUST ANOTHER WAY OF SAYING
YOU DON'T TRUST ME.
ALAN: A.J., TRY AND REMEMBER
THAT YOU'RE MAD AT CARLY,
NOT AT YOUR MOTHER.
A.J.: YEAH, OF COURSE I'M MAD
AT CARLY.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
IT MAY NOT HAVE LOOKED LIKE IT
FROM THE OUTSIDE, BUT
OUR MARRIAGE MEANT SOMETHING
TO ME.
YOU KNOW, WHEN I THINK ABOUT ALL
THE TIMES I -- I TRIED TO MAKE
IT WORK --
CARLY MUST'VE GONE UP
TO HER ROOM AND HOWLED ABOUT HOW
MUCH I WAS FAWNING OVER HER,
OR MAYBE SHE WAITED UNTIL
SHE SAW JASON AND THEY LAUGHED
AT ME TOGETHER.
EITHER WAY, I WAS CERTAINLY
ENTERTAINING.
MONICA: THIS IS NOT ABOUT
YOU, A.J.
CARLY IS A SOCIAL DEVIANT,
AND WE'RE TRYING TO HELP YOU GET
HER OUT OF YOUR LIFE.
A.J.: BY DIVORCING HER?
MONICA: AS FAST AS POSSIBLE.
A.J.: WHICH MEANS JOINT
CUSTODY OF MICHAEL!
MONICA: WELL, IT IS THE BEST
OPTION AT THE MOMENT,
ESPECIALLY IF CARLY AND MICHAEL
MOVE IN WITH BOBBIE.
ALAN: A.J., AT LEAST THIS IS
A WAY TO END IT.
DRAGGING IT OUT IS ONLY GOING
TO MAKE IT WORSE.
A.J.: WHO SAID ANYTHING ABOUT
ENDING IT?
MONICA: OH, A.J.!
LET HER GO AND BE DONE WITH IT!
A.J.: I WILL NOT.
I WILL NOT LET THAT WOMAN
HUMILIATE ME AND THEN LEAVE
WITH MY SON.
MONICA: SHE'S THE MOTHER
OF YOUR CHILD.
SHE'S GOING TO INSIST ON SOME
CUSTODY.
A.J.: WELL, SHE WON'T
NEED IT.
MONICA: WHAT DO YOU MEAN?
A.J.: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
HOW MUCH CARLY HATES IT HERE?
MONICA: OH, SHE'S MADE THAT
PRETTY OBVIOUS.
A.J.: THE WAY WE LIVE
OUR LIVES, THE WAY WE TREAT EACH
OTHER?
THE WAY WE RELATE TO
OUR FRIENDS?
I MEAN, LIVING HERE IS -- IS
PURE TORTURE FOR CARLY.
ALAN: FINE.
THEN LET HER GET OUT.
A.J.: NO.
THAT'S WHY I'M GOING TO FORCE
HER TO STAY.
MONICA: WHAT?
ALAN: A.J., THAT DOESN'T MAKE
ANY SENSE.
A.J.: IT DOES TO ME.
IT'S ABOUT TIME I GIVE CARLY
A TASTE OF HER OWN MEDICINE.

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

GERTRUDE: OFFICIALLY
AND LEGALLY, CHLOE MORGAN
DESIGNS NOW BELONGS TO ME.

TONY: SO IS -- IS FELICIA OUT
OF TOWN AGAIN?
