ELIZABETH: AHEM.
L&B ENTERTAINMENT.
NO, I'M SORRY, MS. MORGAN ISN'T
IN AT THE MOMENT.
THIS IS ELIZABETH, CHLOE'S
ASSISTANT.
I AM EXPECTING HER BACK IN.a
CAN I GET YOUR NAME?
OK.
AND YOUR NUMBER, PLEASE?
ALL RIGHT.
WELL, I'LL MAKE SURE SHE GETS
THIS MESSAGE.
THANK YOU.
NIKOLAS: HELLO.
ELIZABETH: HELLO.
NIKOLAS: SO, YOU HELPING OUT
CHLOE FOR THE AFTERNOON?
ELIZABETH: WELL,
IT'S A LITTLE MORE PERMANENT
THAN THAT.
CHLOE HIRED ME AS HER ASSISTANT.
NIKOLAS: YEAH?

ROY: OH, NO.
DUDE, YOU KNOW, YOU -- YOU'RE
LIKE A BAD DREAM AND I CAN'T
WAKE UP.
LARKIN: I WANT AN UPDATE
ON THE CASE AGAINST CORINTHOS.
ROY: OF COURSE YOU DO, JOHN.
IS THIS THE PART WHERE I SAY
THERE WON'T BE A CASE UNLESS
YOU GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE
AND LET ME DO MY JOB?
LARKIN: WHICH JOB WAS
THAT, ROY?
THE ONE THAT CORINTHOS GAVE YOU,
OR THE JOB YOU'VE BEEN DOING
FOR THE F.B.I.?
BECAUSE SO FAR, YOU BROUGHT
NOTHING.
ROY: THAT COULD CHANGE
IN A FEW MINUTES IF YOU'LL JUST
LEAVE.
OK.
OK.
CORINTHOS SENT ME TO PAY OFF
THE HARBORMASTER.
LARKIN: DO YOU HAVE ANY
SPECIFICS ON THEIR ARRANGEMENT?
ROY: SUCH AS?
LARKIN: THE PRODUCT
OR THE PIERS CORINTHOS USES?
ROY: I WAS TOLD TO MEET
THE GUY AND GIVE HIM
AN ENVELOPE.
OBVIOUSLY I WON'T KNOW ANYTHING
TILL I DO THAT.
LARKIN: YOU KNOW WHO
YOU SOUND LIKE?
YOUR DAUGHTER.
SHE WAS ALWAYS ABOUT TO GET
EVIDENCE, BUT IT NEVER
MATERIALIZED.
YOU'RE RUNNING OUT OF LEVERS,
DiLUCCA.
THE MORE TIME GOES BY
WITHOUT RESULTS, THE LESS
VALUABLE YOU ARE.

SONNY: WELL, I TOLD ROY
TO CHECK IN WITH YOU AFTER
HE MAKES THE DELIVERY.
YEAH, DO ME A FAVOR.
IF THE HARBORMASTER GIVES M
ANY TROUBLE, LET ME KNOW.
[KNOCK ON DOOR]
SONNY: I GOT TO GO.
SOMEBODY'S AT THE DOOR.
ALL RIGHT.
YEAH?
JOHNNY: MISS DAVIS.
SONNY: OK.
ALEXIS: HAVE YOU EVER
CONSIDERED AN INTERCOM SYSTEM?
IT WOULD BE A LOT MORE DIGNIFIED
THAN YELLING THROUGH THE DOORS.
SONNY: CAN I GET
YOU SOMETHING TO DRINK?
ALEXIS: THANK YOU.
THAT WOULD BE NICE.
JUST WATER, PLEASE.
SONNY: SO?
WHAT DID YOU NEED TO SEE ME
ABOUT?
ALEXIS: SO I ASSUME YOU GOT
YOUR COURT ORDER.
SONNY: IT CAME YESTERDAY.
ALEXIS: GOOD.
SO YOU KNOW THAT CARLY HAS
24 HOURS TO REPORT FOR
D.N.A. TESTING.
SONNY: MM-HMM.
ALEXIS: SO DO YOU.
SONNY: JUST TELL ME WHEN
AND WHERE.
I'M THERE.
ALEXIS: THEY'RE GOING TO CALL
ME SOMETIME THIS AFTERNOON
AT GENERAL HOSPITAL.
THEY'LL CALL ME WITH AN EXACT
TIME.
SONNY: WHAT HAPPENS AFTER
THE TESTS COME BACK?
ALEXIS: WE'RE GOING
TO PETITION THE COURT TO LIST
YOU AS FATHER.
THAT'S THE EASY PART.
SONNY, CUSTODY IS GOING TO BE
A LOT MORE DIFFICULT
BECAUSE IF CARLY CHOOSES
TO REMAIN MARRIED TO A.J.,
IT COULD COME DOWN TO A HEARING
TO DETERMINE WHICH ENVIRONMENT
IS BEST FOR THE CHILD.
SO LET ME ASK YOU --
IF YOU WERE THE JUDGE,
WHERE WOULD YOU PLACE
YOUR CHILD -- WITH THE
QUARTERMAINES OR WITH YOU?

EDWARD: WHAT PROJECT HAS
YOU SO ENGROSSED?
OH, ARE THOSE THE PLANS
FOR THE NEW BABY'S NURSERY?
CARLY: I'M JUST PUTTING
TOGETHER SOME IDEAS.
YOU KNOW, SORT OF DAYDREAMING.
I USED TO DO IT WHEN I WAS
A KID.
YOU KNOW, I'D GO THROUGH
MAGAZINES AND PULL OUT PICTURES
OF THINGS I KNEW THAT I COULD
NEVER HAVE.
EDWARD: BUT YOU CAN HAVE
THEM NOW.
YOU AND YOUR CHILD CAN HAVE
ANYTHING YOU DESIRE.
CARLY: AS LONG AS I STAY PUT
AND DO WHAT I'M TOLD.
EDWARD: YOU MAKE IT SOUND
LIKE A PRISON SENTENCE.
NOW, FEW MOTHERS CAN PROVIDE
A HOME LIKE MICHAEL HAS, AND I'M
SURE THAT THE NEW BABY WILL BE
HAPPY HERE ALSO.
CARLY: COULD YOU STOP SAYING
THAT, EDWARD -- "NEW BABY"?
I MEAN, YOU MAKE MY KID SOUND
LIKE -- LIKE IT'S A CAR YOU'RE
GOING TO BUY.
JASON HATED THAT.
AND I UNDERSTAND WHY NOW.
EDWARD: IT'S FUNNY THAT
YOU SHOULD MENTION JASON.
DO YOU SPEAK TO HIM?
CARLY: NO.
EDWARD: I WONDER.
YOU KNOW, IT OCCURRED TO ME
IF JASON GOT YOU PREGNANT,
HE WOULDN'T CLAIM THE BABY.
UH-UH.
HE WOULD SEND HIS BEST FRIEND
TO DO IT.
AND KNOWING HOW MUCH WE DESPISE
CORINTHOS AND KNOWING THAT
WE WOULD PROBABLY JUST KICK
YOU OUT AND NOT EVEN FIGHT
TO KEEP THE BABY.
BUT -- BUT YOU SEE,
JASON COULDN'T CARRY OFF THAT
KIND OF A LIE.
NO.
SO IT STANDS TO REASON THAT
HE WOULD LEAVE TOWN AND LEAVE
YOU AND CORINTHOS, THE MORE
PRACTICED LIARS, TO DECEIVE
THE REST OF US.
CARLY: IT'S A GOOD THEORY.
BUT UNFORTUNATELY, IT'S NOT
TRUE.
SONNY'S THE ONE THAT ASKED
FOR THE D.N.A. TEST, AND IT'LL
SHOW THAT HE'S THE FATHER.
EDWARD: WELL, NEVERTHELESS,
OUR ATTORNEYS HAVE TAKEN
THE PRECAUTION OF INSISTING THAT
THE TESTS BE ADMINISTERED
AT GENERAL HOSPITAL.
THERE'S LESS OPPORTUNITY
FOR CORINTHOS TO BRIBE THAT WAY.
AND I'LL GO ALONG WITH
YOU MYSELF JUST TO BE SURE THAT
THINGS RUN SMOOTHLY, YOU KNOW?
CARLY: WHAT DO YOU MEAN --
WHAT IS "SMOOTHLY"?
WHAT DO YOU THINK I'M GOING
TO DO, EDWARD?
YOU THINK I'M GOING TO STOP
BY A CLINIC AND STEAL SOMEBODY
ELSE'S D.N.A.?
EDWARD: NOTHING YOU DO WOULD
SURPRISE ME, DEAR.
NOW, OBVIOUSLY, YOU ARE
DETERMINED TO BREAK FREE OF THIS
FAMILY.
BUT YOU REMEMBER THIS -- MICHAEL
REMAINS, NO MATTER WHAT.
HE IS A QUARTERMAINE, AFTER ALL.
LILA: EDWARD,
THAT WILL BE QUITE ENOUGH.

JAX: OK, TONY JONES IS
AT THE DESK, AND SO IS MONICA.
YOU READY?
CHLOE: LET'S DO IT.
JAX: OK.
TONY: HELLO, THERE.
MONICA: HI. HOW ARE YOU?
CHLOE: HELLO.
HEY, THANK YOU AGAIN FOR THOSE
C.D.s THAT YOU AND ALAN SENT.
THEY WERE WONDERFUL.
MONICA: OH.
CHLOE: NED CAME IN AND CAUGHT
ME BAWLING TO "MADAM BUTTERFLY"
THE OTHER NIGHT.
MONICA: WELL, I TOLD ALAN
THAT I REALLY DIDN'T THINK SAD
OPERA WAS A GOOD CHOICE.
CHLOE: OH, IT WAS PERFECT.
YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES THERE'S
NOTHING BETTER THAN A GOOD CRY.
MONICA: WELL, I'M GLAD
YOU ENJOYED THEM.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
MONICA: NOW, I'VE GOT TO RUN.
EXCUSE ME.
CHLOE: BYE.
TONY: WELL, YOU CAN CERTAINLY
TELL THAT BEING OUT
OF THE HOSPITAL AGREES WITH YOU.
CHLOE: WELL, THE ONLY REASON
I CAME IN IS THAT I THOUGHT
MAYBE YOU HAD SOME GOOD NEWS
FOR ME.

TONY: THE C.A.T. SCAN
INDICATES THAT THE SWELLING
IN YOUR BRAIN HAS GONE DOWN.
CHLOE: I DON'T UNDERSTAND.
I THOUGHT THAT MEANT
I COULD SEE.
TONY: WELL, IN YOUR CASE,
THE BONE FRAGMENTS ARE STILL
IMPINGING ON THE OPTIC NERVES.
JAX: SO DOES THAT MEAN CHLOE
SHOULD CONSIDER SURGERY?
TONY: REMOVING THOSE
FRAGMENTS IS A VERY DELICATE
PROCEDURE.
IF THE OPERATION'S COMPLETELY
SUCCESSFUL, THEN YOUR VISION'S
RESTORED.
HOWEVER, THERE IS A RISK THAT
YOUR OPTIC NERVES COULD BE
SEVERED DURING THE SURGERY,
WHICH WOULD ELIMINATE ANY
POSSIBILITY OF YOU BEING ABLE
TO SEE AGAIN.
CHLOE: WHAT WOULD
YOU RECOMMEND?
TONY: I WOULD JUST LET
YOURSELF HAVE TIME TO HEAL.
SURGERY WILL ALWAYS BE
AN OPTION, AND IF YOU DECIDE
TO GO FORWARD, THEN I WILL
RECOMMEND THE BEST NEUROSURGEON
IN THE FIELD.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
TONY: AND I'M TRULY SORRY
THAT I CAN'T GIVE YOU ANY BETTER
NEWS.
CHLOE: WELL, THANK
YOU FOR YOUR HONESTY.
TONY: SURE.
CALL ME IF YOU HAVE ANY
QUESTIONS.
JAX: HEY.
WE'LL GET THROUGH THIS.
CHLOE: I WANT TO BELIEVE
YOU, JAX.
I JUST DON'T KNOW IF I CAN
ANYMORE.
JAX: OH.

ELIZABETH: HERE.
THESE ARE ALL FOR NED.
I DON'T KNOW, MAYBE YOU CAN
HANDLE SOME OF THEM.
NIKOLAS: YEAH, YEAH.
HEY, THIS IS ABOUT SETTING UP
A PUBLIC APPEARANCE FOR NEXT
WEEK.
ELIZABETH: YOU'RE REALLY
GETTING INTO THIS, AREN'T YOU?
NIKOLAS: WELL, IT IS A LOT
MORE INTERESTING THAN THE INNER
WORKINGS OF THE CASSADINE
INDUSTRY.
SO WHEN DID LOE OFFER
YOU THE JOB?
ELIZABETH: YESTERDAY.
NIKOLAS: WELL, I -- I MUST
SAY THAT I'M GLAD THAT THIS
ISN'T A PROBLEM WITH US WORKING
TOGETHER --
YOU KNOW, SINCE WE'VE BEEN
FIGHTING A LOT LATELY.
ELIZABETH: I DON'T RESPOND
WELL WHEN PEOPLE TELL ME WHAT
TO DO.
YOU CAN JUST ASK MY GRAM.
BUT, LISTEN, IT'S -- IT'S NOT OK
THAT YOU WENT TO THE POLICE
BEHIND MY BACK, BUT I DON'T WANT
TO FIGHT ABOUT IT ANYMORE, OK?
I JUST THINK SOMETIMES IT'S
BETTER TO AGREE TO DISAGREE.
NIKOLAS: I CAN LIVE
WITH THAT.
ELIZABETH: OK. ME, TOO.
NIKOLAS: WELL, LOOK,
I'M ON MY WAY TO MEET
WITH THE MANAGER OF WLPC ABOUT
ADDING OUR MATERIAL
TO THEIR PLAYLIST, SO IS THERE
ANYTHING YOU NEED BEFORE I GO?
ELIZABETH: HOW ABOUT A RIDE?
THE POST OFFICE IS HOLDI
A PACKAGE.
I SHOULD PROBABLY PICK IT UP.
NIKOLAS: YOU BET.
IT'S ON MY WAY.
ELIZABETH: OK.

EDWARD: LILA, CARLY
AND I WERE JUST DISCUSSING
THE NEW --
CARLY: WHAT?
EDWARD: THE -- MICHAEL'S
LITTLE BROTHER OR SISTER.
LILA: I KNOW PERFECTLY WELL
YOU WERE BULLYING HER.
WELL, I WANT IT TO STOP AT ONCE.
EDWARD: LILA, IT IS BEST
FOR EVERYONE IF CARLY
UNDERSTANDS HER SITUATION.
NOW, YOU CAN DEAL WITH
YOUR PROBLEMS ANY WAY YOU SEE
FIT, BUT MICHAEL REMAINS HERE.
LILA: OH, WHY DON'T YOU GO
FOR A WALK, EDWARD?
YOUR DOCTOR SAYS YOU NEED
EXERCISE.
EDWARD: WOULDN'T IT JUST BE
SIMPLER TO TELL ME WHEN I'M NOT
WANTED?
NOW, YOU LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU'RE
READY TO LEAVE FOR THE HOSPITAL.
CARLY: REGINALD'S GOING
TO DRIVE ME, AND I'D RATHER BE
ALONE, ACTUALLY.
EDWARD: AS YOU WISH.
CARLY: THANK YOU.
LILA: IT'S NO BOTHER.
CARLY: HOW COME YOU STILL
STICK UP FOR ME, EVEN THOUGH
I DISAPPOINTED YOU AND HURT
YOU AND HURT PEOPLE THAT
YOU CARE ABOUT?
DOESN'T MATTER.
I MEAN, NOBODY ELSE EVER DOES
THAT FOR ME, YOU KNOW, EXCEPT
JASON.
YOU'RE LIKE HIM.
I KEEP THINKING IF JASON WOULD
COME BACK, YOU KNOW, HE WOULD
FIX -- HE'D FIX EVERYTHING.
HE'D TELL SONNY THAT HE DOESN'T
HAVE TO TAKE AWAY OUR BABY,
AND --
YOUR FAMILY DOESN'T HAVE TO TAKE
MICHAEL, EITHER.
DO YOU THINK YOU COULD -- COULD
YOU PLEASE TELL EDWARD THAT
FOR ME?

ALEXIS: THIS CHILD IS
A PRODUCT OF ADULTERY.
NOW, THAT'S A LEGAL POSITION,
NOT A MORAL ONE.
BUT THE LAW IS GOING TO BE
SYMPATHETIC TO THE WRONG PARTY,
AND IN THIS CASE, THAT'S A.J.
SONNY: MM-HMM.
ALEXIS: NOW, AS LONG AS HE'S
WILLING TO ACT AS FATHER,
THE BURDEN IS ON YOU TO PROVE
THAT HE AND CARLY ARE UNFIT.
SONNY: A.J.'S A DRUNK WHO
SLAMMED HIS BROTHER'S HEAD
INTO A TREE.
CARLY SHOT SOMEBODY IN OPEN
COURT.
HOW MUCH MORE DO I GOT TO PROVE?
ALEXIS: HOW DID YOUR WIFE
DIE, MR. CORINTHOS?
SHE WAS PREGNANT AT THE TIME,
WASN'T SHE?
AND WASN'T YOUR RESIDENCE
THE TARGET OF MACHINE GUN FIRE?
SONNY: MY LAST RESIDENCE.
MY CURRENT RESIDENCE HAS
BULLETPROOF GLASS.
ALEXIS: WRONG ANSWER.
YOU DON'T WANT TO TELL A JUDGE
HOW YOU'RE GOING TO PROTECT
YOUR CHILD.
YOU WANT TO TELL THE JUDGE HOW
YOUR CHILD WILL NEVER, EVER BE
IN ANY DANGER.
SONNY: IS THERE ANY POINT
TO THIS?
ALEXIS: THE POINT IS THIS IS
GOING TO BE A LONG AND A VERY
HARD FIGHT.
THE QUARTERMAINES ARE GOING
TO BRING UP EVERYTHING THAT
YOU HAVE EVER DONE.
ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THAT?
SONNY: WELL, YOU KEEP TALKING
ABOUT -- YOU KNOW, YOU KEEP
TALKING ABOUT MY RIGHTS
AND A.J.'S.
WHAT ABOUT THE KID'S?
ALEXIS: AHEM.
SONNY: I MEAN, DOESN'T --
YOU KNOW, HE DIDN'T ASK TO BE
BORN.
I MEAN, I HELPED CREATE HIM.
CAN'T I GIVE HIM SOMETHING,
A CHANCE TO GROW UP AND A LIFE
WITHOUT FEAR?
THE QUARTERMAINES DON'T --
THEY DON'T WANT MY CHILD.
THEY ONLY WANT TO PROTECT
MICHAEL.
AND WHO KNOWS HOW LONG THEY'RE
GOING TO HOLD ON TO CARLY
OR WHERE SHE'LL GO NEXT?
WHAT IF SHE MEETS UP WITH SOME
GUY WHO DOESN'T LIKE MY KID?
MY --
WHEW. BOY.
MY CHILD --
MY CHILD WILL NOT BE TRAPPED,
WILL NOT BE ALONE WITH NO WAY
TO DEFEND HIMSELF OR TO HAVE
TO TAKE WHAT SOME BASTARD DOES
TO HIM.
THIS BABY IS GOING TO BE SAFE
AND IT'S GOING TO BE LOVED,
NO MATTER WHAT I HAVE TO DO.
ALEXIS: WERE YOU EVER
PHYSICALLY ABUSED AS A CHILD?

SONNY: HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN
FILE FOR CUSTODY?
DO I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL AFTER
THE BABY'S BORN OR WHATEVER?
ALEXIS: YOU DIDN'T ANSWER
MY QUESTION.
SONNY: THIS ISN'T ABOUT ME.
IT'S ABOUT THE KID.
ALEXIS: THIS IS VERY MUCH
ABOUT YOU.
IT GOES TO YOUR FITNESS
AS A PARENT.
SONNY: I OWN MY OWN BUSINESS.
I PAY TAXES.
THE WORST CRIME I'VE EVER PLED
TO WAS A MISDEMEANOR, SO WHAT'S
THE BIG DEAL?
ALEXIS: STATISTICS SHOW THAT
IF YOU WERE ABUSED AS A CHILD,
THERE'S A HIGH PERCENTAGE
YOU COULD GROW UP TO BECOME
AN ABUSER.
NOW, IF THE QUARTERMAINES CAN
PROVE THAT --
SONNY: PROVE WHAT,
THAT I WAS HIT?
YOU REALLY THINK THAT THAT MEANS
THAT I WOULD HIT MY OWN KID?
THAT I WOULD RAISE MY HANDS
TO A SMALL, LITTLE BOY
AND ACTUALLY HIT HIM?
I WOULD DIE FIRST.
ALEXIS: AND I BELIEVE YOU.
BUT IF YOU HAVE AN OUTBURST LIKE
THAT IN FRONT OF A JUDGE,
YOU WILL LOSE ALL HOPE OF SEEING
YOUR CHILD, LET ALONE
RAISING HIM.
I'M TRYING TO HELP YOU, SONNY.
SO YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO TELL
ME WHAT HAPPENED BECAUSE I NEED
TO FORMULATE A STRATEGY TO DEAL
WITH IT.
SONNY: WHEN I WAS 8,
MY MOTHER MARRIED A COP.
DEKE WOODS, SGT. TIMOTHY DEACON
WOODS.
FOUR MONTHS INTO THE MARRIAGE,
HE --
HE HIT BOTH OF US, AND THEN IT
WENT ON AND ON.
ALEXIS: YOU SAW YOUR MOTHER
BEING ABUSED?
SONNY: HE SLAPPED HER A LOT.
SOMETIMES HE'D GRAB
HER BY THE ARM AND HE'D THROWN
HER DOWN OR AGAINST SOMETHING.
ME, HE'D HIT
WITH A BELT BUCKLE, USUALLY.
HE'D LOCK ME IN THE CLOSET
FIRST, THEN HE'D GO AND GET GOOD
AND DRUNK AND THEN
I'D HEAR HIS FOOTSTEPS WALKING
DOWN THE HALL.
HE'D OPEN THE DOOR.
THE RULE WAS I COULDN'T RAISE
MY HANDS.
I HAD TO STAND THERE
AND TAKE IT!
AND IF I RAN,
IT MADE IT WORSE.
ALEXIS: HOW LONG DID THIS GO
ON FOR?
SONNY: TILL I LEFT.
ACTUALLY, NO.
IT --
UNTIL I FOUGHT BACK
AND NEARLY KILLED HIM.
ALEXIS: HOW OLD WERE YOU?
SONNY: 16.
ALEXIS: EIGHT YEARS.
SONNY: DOES IT WORK -- DOES
IT WORK AGAINST ME THAT IT WENT
ON SO LONG?

LILA: I SELDOM OPPOSE EDWARD.
HE SIMPLY GOES BEHIND MY BACK.
CARLY: THEN YOU WON'T
HELP ME.
LILA: YOUR CHILDREN COULD BE
VERY HAPPY HERE IF YOU'D LET
THEM.
CARLY: LILA, YOU AND I WILL
LOVE SONNY'S BABY, BUT NO ONE
ELSE WILL.
THEY'LL TOLERATE IT OR THEY'LL
BE ASHAMED, AND THE BABY WILL
KNOW AND THE BABY WILL BLAME
ITSELF, YOU KNOW?
THAT'S WHY YOU HAVE TO BE VERY
CAREFUL AROUND CHILDREN
BECAUSE IF SOMETHING BAD
HAPPENS, CHILDREN AUTOMATICALLY
THINK THAT IT'S THEIR FAULT.
LILA: YES.
CARLY: I'M RIGHT BACK WHERE
I STARTED.
I CAN'T STAY.
I CAN'T LEAVE.
I'M TRAPPED, EXCEPT NOW
MY CHILDREN ARE TRAPPED, TOO.

JAX: ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT
TO BE AT WORK TODAY?
CHLOE: YES.
IF YOU TOOK ME HOME, I WOULD
JUST BE THINKING ABOUT
THE SURGERY.
WELL, AT LEAST THIS WAY, I CAN
DISTRACT MYSELF.
ARE THERE ANY MESSAGES?
JAX: YEAH.
SEVERAL.
CHLOE: I WAS HOPING ELIZABETH
WOULD BE HERE SO WE COULD RETURN
SOME PHONE CALLS.
I DON'T SUPPOSE YOU FEEL LIKE
BEING MY ASSISTANT FOR A WHILE?
JAX: WHATEVER YOU NEED.
CHLOE: I THINK WHAT I NEED IS
TO NOT THINK.
MAYBE WORK WASN'T THE BEST
ANSWER.
MAYBE -- MAYBE YOU NEEDED
TO TAKE ME MOUNTAIN CLIMBING.
BLIND MOUNTAIN CLIMBING -- THAT
WOULD BE DISTRACTING,
WOULDN'T IT?
JAX: CHLOE, JUST TAKE IT
EASY, OK?
TONY SAID YOU'VE GOT PLENTY
OF TIME TO DECIDE.
ALL RIGHT?
CHLOE: I DON'T WANT TO BE
BLIND FOR SIX MONTHS IF I CAN
HAVE THIS SURGERY AND SEE
IN A WEEK.
BUT, JAX, I JUST CAN'T IMAGINE
IF I HAVE THIS SURGERY
AND I TAKE THE RISK,
AND I WAKE UP
AND I STILL CAN'T SEE.
CAN YOU PLEASE HOLD ME?

ROY: YOU PHILLIPS?
MAN: YEAH.
ROY: I BELIEVE I HAVE
SOMETHING THAT BELONGS TO YOU.
PHILLIPS: LOOKS RIGHT.
ROY: I ASSUME WE CAN COUNT
ON YOUR FULL COOPERATION?
PHILLIPS: YOUR ASSOCIATES CAN
CONSIDER THE PIER AT
THEIR DISPOSAL.
ROY: EXCELLENT.
TAGGERT: FREEZE!
NOBODY MOVE.
ROY: WHAT, WHAT?
TAGGERT: PUT YOUR HANDS WHERE
I CAN SEE THEM!
WELL, WELL, WELL.
WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE?
HARBORMASTER PHILLIPS, ISN'T IT?
MR. DiLUCCA.
ROY: IS THERE A PROBLEM,
LIEUTENANT?
TAGGERT: I BELIEVE SO.
IT APPEARS THAT OFC. HOPKINS
AND MYSELF HAVE STUMBLED ACROSS
AN ORGANIZED CRIME PAYOFF.
PUT YOUR HANDS ABOVE YOUR HEAD
AND CLASP YOUR FINGERS TOGETHER.
ROY: THERE'S OBVIOUSLY --
TAGGERT: NOW!
ROY: WHAT EXACTLY IS
E CHARGE, TAGGERT?
TAGGERT: TRY BRIBING A PUBLIC
OFFICIAL.
MR. DiLUCCA, MR. PHILLIPS,
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REMAIN
SILENT.
IF YOU GIVE UP THAT RIGHT,
ANYTHING YOU SAY CAN AND WILL BE
USED AGAINST YOU IN A COURT
OF LAW.
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE
AN ATTORNEY PRESENT WHILE BEING
QUESTIONED.

CHLOE: ENOUGH OBSESSING.
THAT'S THE REASON I WANTED
YOU TO BRING ME HERE -- SO THAT
I WOULDN'T FALL APART.
JAX: FALLING APART IS
ALLOWED.
CHLOE: ONLY IN SMALL DOSES.
OTHERWISE I GET SICK OF MYSELF.
ARE YOU READY TO DIAL SOME
NUMBERS?
JAX: I MAY NOT HAVE TO.
CHLOE: OH, IS THAT ELIZABETH?
ELIZABETH: OH, CHLOE.
I'M GLAD YOU'RE HERE.
YOU HAVE ABOUT 15 MESSAGES.
ALL OF THEM SAY THEY'RE URGENT,
AND I DON'T KNOW -- OH,
THANK YOU.
I DON'T WHO'S TELLING THE TRUTH
AND WHO'S BEING DRAMATIC.
CHLOE: A FIRST RULE
OF THE FASHION INDUSTRY --
EVERYONE IS DRAMATIC.
ELIZABETH: OH, I ALSO PICKED
UP A PACKAGE FROM THE
POST OFFICE FOR YOU.
CHLOE: OH, IS IT NEXT-DAY AIR
FROM ITALY?
ELIZABETH: YES.
CHLOE: THOSE ARE FABRIC
SAMPLES FOR THE FALL LINE.
JAX?
JAX: I'M RIGHT HERE.
CHLOE: I THINK I CAN HANDLE
IT FROM HERE ON OUT.
THANK YOU.
YOU PROBABLY HAVE SOME BUSINESS
TO ATTEND TO.
JAX: I CAN TAKE A HINT.
I'LL BE BACK LATER, OK?
CHLOE: OK.
JAX: DON'T WORK TOO HARD.
CHLOE: YOU, EITHER.
ELIZABETH: OK, SO,
DO YOU WANT TO GO THROUGH
YOUR MESSAGES FIRST?
MAYBE WE SHOULD --
CHLOE: LET'S OPEN UP
THE FABRIC SAMPLES FIRST,
PLEASE.
I HAVE A FRIEND AT ONE
OF THE TEXTILE FIRMS WHO ALWAYS
SENDS ME A PREVIEW OF THEIR NEW
LINES.
ELIZABETH: OK.
OH, WOW.
THESE ARE BEAUTIFUL.
CHLOE: YES?
ELIZABETH: ESPECIALLY THIS
ONE.
HERE, FEEL IT.
CHLOE: OH.
GEORGETTE CHIFFON?
ELIZABETH: IT'S ACTUALLY --
CHLOE: WHAT COLOR IS IT?
ELIZABETH: WELL, IT'S LIKE
A --
I GUESS YOU COULD CALL IT
A CRIMSON RED.
IT'S TWO-TONE.
WHEN IT CATCHES THE LIGHT,
IT KIND OF HAS A SHIMMER
OF BLACK.
IT'S ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.
CHLOE: OH, IT SOUNDS
THAT WAY.
I CAN IMAGINE EXACTLY HOW I'D
LIKE TO USE THIS.
IT DRAPES PERFECTLY SO YOU COULD
USE IT FOR A FULL-SKIRTED
EVENING GOWN.
ELIZABETH, WHEN WE FINISH DOING
OUR PHONE CALLS, DO YOU THINK
IF I DESCRIBED TO YOU A DESIGN,
THAT YOU COULD DRAW A DRESS?
ELIZABETH: I GUESS I COULD
TRY.
I'M NOT GOING TO BE AS GOOD
AS YOU.
CHLOE: NO, NO, NO.
DON'T SELL YOURSELF SHORT.
I MEAN, I CAN'T PROMISE YOU IT
WILL WORK, BUT WE COULD GIVE IT
A TRY.

TAGGERT: LOST MY KEYS,
DAMN IT.
ROY: WHAT ARE YOU TALKING
ABOUT, YOU LOST YOUR KEYS?
TAGGERT: WHAT, DID I STUTTER?
I CAN'T FIND MY KEYS.
HOPKINS, HAVE YOU SEEN MY KEYS?
DARA: WHAT IS THIS?
TAGGERT: I JUST CAUGHT
MR. DiLUCCA HANDING OFF
AN ENVELOPE TO THE HARBORMASTER.
IT APPEARS HE WAS BRIBING HIM
ON BEHALF OF MR. CORINTHOS.
ROY: MR. CORINTHOS EMPLOYS ME
TO LOAD COFFEE.
I HAVE NEVER BRIBED ANYONE
IN MY LIFE.
AND ASIDE FROM THE FACT THAT
HE CLAIMS TO HAVE LOST THE KEYS
TO MY HANDCUFFS, I DON'T KNOW
WHAT THE LIEENANT'S
PROBLEM IS.
TAGGERT: I'LL BE HAPPY
TO EXPLAIN IT TO YOU.
YOU'RE AN EX-CON -- STRIKE ONE.
YOU'RE WORKING FOR THE LOCAL
CRIME LORD -- STRIKE TWO.
YOU JUST GOT BUSTED -- STRIKE
THREE.
YOU ARE OUT.
AND YOUR PROBLEMS ARE ABOUT
TO GET BIGGER.
SO MAY I SUGGEST YOU TELL US
THE TRUTH AND LET SONNY TAKE
THE FALL?

ALEXIS: IS DEKE STILL ALIVE?
SONNY: DEKE WAS SHOT
IN AALLEY THREE YEARS AFTER
I LEFT.
ALEXIS: HOW ABOUT
YOUR MOTHER?
SONNY: SHE'S DEAD, TOO.
COUPLE YEARS AFTER DEKE.
BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
IT'S OVER.
IT DOESN'T MATTER.
ALEXIS: HAS THE ABUSE EVER
BEEN DOCUMENTED BY SOCIAL
WORKERS, TEACHERS, ANYTHING LIKE
THAT?
SONNY: DEKE WAS A COP.
THE NEIGHBORS -- THEY DI'T
CALL ANYBODY, AND I DON'T THINK
MY TEACHERS KNEW.
BECAUSE IF I -- YOU KNOW,
IF I WAS HURTING TOO BAD, I JUST
CUT GYM CLASS.
ALEXIS: NO DOCUMENTATION IS
A GOOD THING.
NOW, ARE THERE ANY WITNESSES
THAT THE QUARTERMAINES COULD
CALL?
DID YOU TELL ANYONE ELSE ABOUT
THIS?
SONNY: LUKE SPENCER.
BUT EVEN IF THEY COULD FIND HIM,
I DON'T THINK, YOU KNOW,
HE'S GOING TO SAY ANYTHING.
MY FATHER KNOWS A LITTLE BIT,
BUT HE'S NOT GOING TO HELP
THE QUARTERMAINES.
THE ONLY ONE WHO MIGHT
IS TAGGERT.
ALEXIS: LT. TAGGERT KNOWS
ABOUT THIS?
SONNY: YEAH, HE WAS DEKE'S
PROTEGE.
HE BLAMES ME FOR DEKE'S DEATH.
ONE NIGHT
WE GOT INTO IT AND HE WENT
ON AND ON ABOUT WHAT
AN HONORABLE AND UPRIGHT MAN
DEKE WAS, AND I SAID, "YOU KNOW
WHAT?
HE'S A WIFE-BEATING COP."
BUT I DON'T THINK HE BELIEVED ME
ANYWAY.
WHO -- WHO WOULD ASK TAGGERT
ABOUT MY CHILDHOOD?
ALEXIS: ANY GOOD ATTORNEY
THAT DOES THEIR HOMEWORK,
AND YOU BETTER BELIEVE THAT
THE QUARTERMAINES ARE GOING
TO HIRE THE BEST.
NOW, IF THEY CAN USE TAGGERT
TO ESTABLISH YOUR HISTORY
OF ABUSE, THEY CAN QUESTION
YOU ABOUT IT.
SONNY: YOU KNOW WHAT?
I'LL JUST SAY IT NEVER HAPPENED.
ALEXIS: PERJURE YOURSELF,
AND YOU LOSE YOUR CHILD.
SONNY: ARE YOU GOING TO TELL
ME THAT DEKE'S GOING TO COST ME
MY KID?
BECAUSE I COULDN'T STOP HIM,
I COULDN'T GET MY MOTHER AND ME
AWAY, I'M NOT GOING TO BE ABLE
TO RAISE MY OWN CHILD?
ALEXIS: IT'S POSSIBLE THAT
THE QUARTERMAINE ATTORNEY WILL
OVERLOOK TAGGERT.
I DON'T KNOW.
MAYBE IT'S POSSIBLE.
SONNY: ALL RIGHT.
ALEXIS: IT'S POSSIBLE I COULD
EXCLUDE HIM AS A WITNESS.
HE DOES HAVE A HISTORY
OF HARASSING YOU.
BUT IF YOU ARE ASKED ABOUT
YOUR ABUSE, YOU ANSWER IT
TRUTHFULLY.
A LIE WILL BLOW THE CASE.
SONNY: I UNDERSTAND.
ALEXIS: THERE ARE OTHER
FACTORS.
YOU ARE KNOWN TO HAVE A VIOLENT
TEMPER.
SONNY: I'VE BEEN IN A FEW
FIGHTS.
ALEXIS: RECENTLY?
SONNY: WELL, LAST SUMMER
I THREW THIS F.B.I. AGENT
THROUGH A WINDOW.
ALEXIS: OH, FOR HEAVEN'S
SAKE --
SONNY: WELL, I MEAN,
YOU ASKED ME.
WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO?
ALEXIS: AS IF IT COULD GET
ANY WORSE.
YOU PLED NO CONTEST
TO A MISDEMEANOR CNT
OF ENDANGERING A MINOR.
YOU EMPLOYED ONE KAREN WEXLER
AS A STRIPPER IN YOUR CLUB WHEN
SHE WAS UNDERAGE.
SONNY: YEAH, I DID.
ALEXIS: SO IF SHE WERE CALLED
TO TESTIFY, WHAT COULD SHE SHARE
WITH THE COURT?
SONNY: THAT I SLEPT WITH HER.
BUT ONLY AFTER SHE WAS 18,
AND THAT I DID GIVE HER ACCESS
TO PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION.
BUT THAT, YOU KNOW --
ALEXIS: ARE YOU
BEGINNING -- BEGINNING TO SEE
THE PROBLEM HERE?
YOU ARE A CAREER CRIMINAL.
YOU HAVE CONTRIBUTED
TO THE DELINQUENCY OF MINORS.
THERE IS A COP THAT CAN TESTIFY
THAT YOU WERE ABUSED AS A CHILD.
SONNY: THE -- THE ONLY THING
I KNOW AND CARE ABOUT IS THAT
I WILL TAKE CARE OF THIS CHILD
AND I WILL NOT BE FORCED OUT
OF ITS LIFE.
ALEXIS: HERE'S WHAT I'M GOING
TO SUGGEST.
I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A LOT
EASIER FOR YOU IF YOU TRY
TO STRIKE UP A COMPROMISE
WITH CARLY.
IF SHE WILL GIVE YOU CONTACT
WITH THE CHILD, THEN I THINK
IT'S A GOOD THING FOR YOU,
AND I THINK YOU SHOULD --
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
SONNY: SHH, SHH.
HELLO?
WHAT?
ALL RIGHT.
I'LL TAKE CARE OF IT.
READY TO GO TO WORK?
ALEXIS: UGH.
HAVE THE QUARTERMAINES STARTED
UP ALREADY?
SONNY: NO, YOUR OTHER LINE
OF WORK.
ONE OF MY --
ALEXIS: HEY, HEY, HEY!
I TOLD YOU THAT I WILL
DEFEND YOU.
I AM NOT DEFENDING ALL THE THUGS
THAT YOU EMPLOY.
SONNY: THIS GUY IS A COFFEE
BAGGER AT MY WAREHOUSE.
ALEXIS: THE LAST COFFEE
BAGGER THAT I DEFENDED WAS
A DEMOLITION EXPERT THAT DEFUSED
A BOMB ON NEW YEAR'S EVE.
SONNY: WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT?
THAT'S GREAT BECAUSE
YOU KNOW HIM.
ROY DiLUCCA.
HE'LL BE REASSURED TO SEE YOU.
ALEXIS: I'M CHARGING
YOU DOUBLE FOR THIS
BECAUSE MY FEE AS A DEFENSE
ATTORNEY IS ENTIRELY SEPARATE
FOR THE TIME THAT I SPEND
ON YOUR CUSTODY CASE.
SONNY: YOU'RE THE GREATEST.

CARLY: AUDREY?
I'M HERE TO SEE DR. MEADOWS.
AUDREY: OH, YES,
FOR THE PATERNITY TEST.
CARLY: DON'T PATIENTS HAVE
ANY RIGHTS TO PRIVACY?
MONICA: WHAT'S THE MATTER,
CARLY?
THE WHOLE TOWN KNOWS THAT
YOU ARE PREGNANT WITH SONNY
CORINTHOS' CHILD.
CARLY: THAT'S NICE, MONICA.
THAT'S GREAT.
IT'S REALLY PROFESSIONAL OF YOU.
AUDREY: IF YOU'LL JUST WAIT
IN THE LOUNGE, I'LL TELL
DR. MEADOWS YOU'RE HERE, HMM?
CARLY: THANK YOU.
MONICA: CARLY, WHY DON'T
YOU SPARE EVERYBODY A LOT
OF GRIEF AND GIVE UP YOUR CLAIM
TO MICHAEL.
CARLY: I WILL NEVER GIVE UP
EITHER ONE OF MY CHILDREN.
MONICA: OH.
OF ALL THEEOPLE ON THIS
PLANET, I AM THE LEAST LIKELY
TO BUY YOUR SAINTED MOTHER
ROUTINE.
YOU ARE A GOLD-DIGGING TRAMP.
AND IF IT TAKES MONEY TO GET
YOU OUT OF TOWN, THEN I CAN
CERTAINLY ARRANGE THAT.
CARLY: WHERE DO YOU GET OFF
CALLING ME A TRAMP?
YOU WROTE THE BOOK ON SLEEPING
AROUND.
MONICA: I HAVE MADE
MY MISTAKES, YES.
BUT I DEFINITELY WASN'T MARRIED
TO ONE MAN, PRETENDING TO LOVE
ANOTHER MAN, WHILE SLEEPING
WITH A THIRD.
CHLOE: YEAH, SOMEHOW I THINK
THAT'S JUST BLIND, STUPID LUCK.
MONICA: YOU KNOW,
ACTUALLY, IT'S QUITE FITTING
THAT YOU ARE SLEEPING
WITH SONNY.
TRASH SEEKS ITS OWN LEVEL.

JAX: HEY. I'M BACK.
CHLOE: HI.
ELIZABETH: HI.
JAX: WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?
CHLOE: WELL, IT'S A LITTLE
EXPERIMENT.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE DRAWING
ELIZABETH IS DOING?
JAX: WELL, IT LOOKS GOOD
TO ME.
CHLOE: I THINK IT MAY BE
THE FIRST DESIGN EVER
BY DICTATION.
OF COURSE, WE HAVE NO IDEA
IF THE DESIGN IN MY HEAD IS
THE SAME AS WHAT'S ON HER PAPER,
BUT WE'VE HAD FUN TRYING,
HAVEN'T WE?
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW, I THINK
IT'S AS GOOD AS IT'S GOING
TO BE, SO --
I'M LATE FOR KELLY'S, AND MAYBE
WE CAN FINISH THIS TOMORROW?
CHLOE: SURE.
I'VE HAD ENOUGH FOR ONE DAY.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, ELIZABETH.
I THINK I HAVE FINALLY FOUND
THE PERFECT ASSISTANT.
ELIZABETH: WELL,
THANK YOU FOR GIVING ME
THE CHANCE.
SEE YOU.
JAX: SEE YOU.
CHLOE: BYE.
ARE YOU UP TO SOMETHING?
JAX: NOW, WHY WOULD
YOU EVEN ASK?
CHLOE: BECAUSE ELIZABETH
AND I WERE WORKING HARD AND THEN
SHE COULDN'T GET OUT OF HERE
FAST ENOUGH, AND I HAVE
A FEELING SHE WAS
ACCOMMODATING YOU.
JAX: WELL, I'LL GIVE
YOU A HINT.
IT'S WARM AND LUXURIOUS.
CHLOE: IS IT CASHMERE?
JAX: WHY DON'T YOU OPEN IT
AND SEE FOR YOURSELF?
CHLOE: NYLON?
JAX: BITE YOUR TONGUE.
COME ON, "NYLON."
THIS IS THE LATEST WEATHERPROOF
MICROFIBER.
CHLOE: AND IT'S HUGE.
JAX: IT'S A DOWN PARKA.
CHLOE: OH.
JAX: AND YOU, MY DEAR,
ARE GOING TO NEED IT WHERE WE'RE
GOING.
CHLOE: OH.

ALEXIS: MY CLIENT WAS BROUGHT
IN FOR QUESTIONING.
ROY DiLUCCA.
TAGGERT: WHY DON'T YOU GIVE
US SOMETHING WE CAN USE.
IF IT TURNS OUT TO BE GOOD,
WE WON'T HAVE TO BOUNCE
YOUR BUTT BACK TO PENTONVILLE.
ROY: WELL, YOU KNOW, I WAS
TAKING A SHORTCUT THROUGH
THE ALLEY, AND I FOUND THIS
ENVELOPE ON THE GROUND.
ALEXIS: GOOD AFTERNOON,
LT. TAGGERT.
YOU WOULDN'T BE INTERROGATING
MY CLIENT WITHOUT BENEFIT
OF COUNSEL, WOULD YOU?
TAGGERT: NO.
ACTUALLY, HE WAS GIVING US
A VOLUNTARY STATEMENT.
AND YOU ARE WELCOME TO STAY,
EVEN THOUGH I DO QUESTION HIM
BEING HERE.
UNLESS HE GOT A LAW DEGREE WHEN
NO ONE WAS LOOKING.
SONNY: WHY ULD I DEFEND
MYSELF WHEN MS. DAVIS DOES SUCH
AN EXCELLENT JOB?
BUT, YOU KNOW, SHE GETS PAID
SO MUCH MONEY, I THOUGHT I'D
COME BY TO MAKE SURE SHE'S
EARNING HER PAY.
TAGGERT: SO YOU'RE HERE
TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU GET
YOUR MONEY'S WTH?
SONNY: NO, NO, I'M HERE
TO MAKE SURE THAT MY EMPLOYEE
GETS TREATED FAIRLY.
TAGGERT: YOU KNOW,
BY THE WAY, WHAT EXACTLY DOES
MR. DiLUCCA DO FOR YOU?
SONNY: LOAD COFFEE.
ALEXIS: I'M CONFUSED.
ARE YOU QUESTIONING
MR. CORINTHOS OR MR. DiLUCCA?
CORRECTION.
YOU'RE TAKING A VOLUNTARY
STATEMENT, CORRECT?
TAGGERT: THAT'S RIGHT.
ALEXIS: THEN WHY DON'T
YOU LET HIM FINISH A SENTENCE.
TAGGERT: MR. DiLUCCA.
ROY: THANK YOU.
WELL, AS I WAS SAYING, I WAS
CUTTING THROUGH THE ALLEY,
AND I SAW THIS ENVELOPE
ON THE GROUND.
TURNS OUT IT WAS FULL OF CASH.
GOT TO BE HONEST -- I WAS
THINKING OF STICKING IT
IN MY POCKET.
BUT, YOU KNOW, BETTER JUDGMENT
AND ALL THAT, I DECIDED I'D GIVE
IT TO THE HARBORMASTER, AT WHICH
POINT HE SHOWED UP AND INFORMED
ME THAT RETURNING LOST MONEY WAS
SOMEHOW A CRIME IN THIS CITY.
TAGGERT: OH, BOY.
IS THAT THE BEST YOU CAN COME UP
WITH?
SONNY: SOUNDS REASONABLE
TO ME.
TAGGERT: OH, YEAH, I'M SURE
IT DOES SINCE HE WAS CARRYING
YOUR PAYOFF.
DARA: YOU LET HIM CALL
HIS LAWYER AND HIS BOSS?
TAGGERT: I DIDN'T LET HIM
CALL ANYBODY.
ALEXIS: SO YOU ADMIT
TO VIOLATING MY CLIENT'S RIGHTS?
DARA: OK, BEFORE YOU CLIMB
ON YOUR SOAPBOX, COUNSELOR,
COULD WE POSSIBLY GET SOME WORK
DONE?
THKS.
HERE'S A SURPRISE.
HARBORMASTER PHILLIPS DISCLAIMS
ALL KNOWLEDGE OF THE MONEY,
SAYS HE NEVER SAW MR. DiLUCCA
UNTIL HE HANDED HIM
THE ENVELOPE.
ALEXIS: SO YOU'VE ARRESTED
MY CLIENT FOR BEING A GOOD
SAMARITAN?
TAGGERT: YOUR CLIENT WAS
CAUGHT DEAD TO RIGHT HANDING
OVER $10,000 OF UNMARKED,
NONSEQUENTIAL BILLS.
ALEXIS: CONGRATULATIONS.
HONESTY LIKE THAT IS A RARE
THING INDEED.
ROY: I DO WHAT I CAN.
SONNY: YOU SHOULD GIVE HIM
A MEDAL.
[TELEPHONE RINGS]
ALEXIS: THAT'S ME.
HOLD IT.
ALEXIS DAVIS.
TAGGERT: YOU MIND TELLING ME
HOW YOU KNEW WE HAD MR. DiLUCCA?
SONNY: YEAH.
ROY WORKED FOR ME AT
THE WAREHOUSE.
ONE OF MY EMPLOYEES CALLED
AND SAID THAT HE WAS BEING
UNLAWFULLY DETAINED.
ALEXIS: THANK YOU.
THEY NEED YOU AT THE HOSPITAL.
SONNY: YOU SURE YOU CAN
HANDLE THIS?
ALEXIS: NO.
I'M COMPLETELY INCOMPETENT.
ISN'T THAT WHY YOU PAY ME?
GO.
SO, ANYONE HERE CAN DISPROVE
MY CLIENT'S STORY?
WITNESSES?
EVIDENCE?
HOW ABOUT ILLEGALLY OBTAINED
TAPE RECORDINGS?
THAT'S WHAT I THOUGHT.
RELEASE MY CLIENT.

CHLOE: JAX, I WAS KIDDING
ABOUT THE MOUNTAIN CLIMBING.
JAX: WELL, YOU COULDN'T
MOUNTAIN CLIMB IN THIS ANYWAY.
IT'S WAY TOO BULKY.
CHLOE: THAT'S A RELIEF.
JAX: SO, IT'S PERFECT
FOR SNOWSHOEING THOUGH.
CHLOE: SNOWSHOEING?
JAX: YEAH, IN ALASKA.
I'M GOING TO TAKE YOU THERE
AS SOON AS TONY SAYS IT'S OK.
CHLOE: TO YOUR FAMILY'S
CABIN?
JAX: YEP.
CHLOE: HMM.
JAX: YOU SAID YOU WANTED
A DISTRACTION.
THERE IT IS.
LOTS OF CHAMPAGNE,
WALKS IN THE SNOW,
LOVEMAKING BY THE FIRE.
AND BEST OF ALL, NO
DISTRACTIONS.
CHLOE: SOUNDS LIKE EXACTLY
WHAT I NEED TO CLEAR MY HEAD
BEFORE THE SURGERY.
JAX: SO YOU'VE DECIDED TO GO
AHEAD WITH IT, THEN?
CHLOE: I DON'T THINK
SKETCHING BY DICTATION IS A VERY
EFFECTIVE WAY TO RUN A DESIGN
FIRM.
BESIDES, IF I HAVE A CHANCE
TO SEE YOUR FACE AGAIN,
I'M GOING TO TAKE IT.
JAX: YOU'RE VERY BRAVE,
YOU KNOW THAT?
CHLOE: I'M ALSO ABOUT
TO PASS OUT.
CAN I TAKE OFF THIS COAT?
JAX: OH, I'M SORRY.
YEAH.
CHLOE: IT'S HOT.
JAX: YEAH.
GIVE IT TO ME.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
JAX: SO, DO YOU HAVE ANY SKI
CLOTHES?
CHLOE: JUST ASK --
JAX?
DID YOU JUST
PASS IN FRONT OF A LIGHT?
JAX: WHY DO YOU ASK?
CHLOE: I JUST SENSED
A MOVEMENT LIKE A SHADOW
OR SOMETHING.
I THINK I'M STARTING TO SEE.

ALEXIS: THEY'RE STALLING
YOUR PAPERWORK.
IT'S A TIME-HONORED DEPARTMENT
TRADITION.
ROY: KIND OF LIKE LOSING
THE KEYS TO MY HANDCUFFS, RIGHT?
WHAT'S UP WITH SONNY?
YOU SAID SOMETHING ABOUT
THEY WANTED HIM AT THE HOSPITAL?
ALEXIS: IT'S NOTHING SERIOUS.
WELL, IT'S SERIOUS.
IT'S JUST NOT LIFE-THREATENING.
HE'S HAVING SOME TESTS RUN.
I READ YOUR ARREST REPORT.
ARE YOU AT ALL CURIOUS AS TO HOW
TAGGERT KNEW WHERE AND WHEN
YOU WERE MEETING THE
HARBORMASTER?
ROY: I WASN'T MEETING ANYONE.
I'M AN INNOCENT BYSTANDER WHO
FOUND AN ENVELOPE BY ACCIDENT.
ALEXIS: IT'S AMAZING HOW
SOMEONE KNEW EXACTLY WHEN THAT
ACCIDENT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.
AND THEY WERE SO CONCERNED
THEY WARNED THE POLICE.
TAGGERT CLAIMS THAT HE WAS
ACTING ON AN ANONYMOUS TIP.

ELIZABETH: GRAM?
HEY.
AUDREY: OH, HI.
ELIZABETH: DO YOU HAVE
A MINUTE?
AUDREY: OH.
FOR YOU, ALWAYS.
OH, IT'S WONDERFUL TO SEE YOU.
I CERTAINLY DO APPRECIATE ALL
THE MESSAGES YOU'VE LEFT TELLING
ME THAT YOU'RE ALL RIGHT.
ELIZABETH: GUESS WHAT.
AUDREY: WHAT?
ELIZABETH: I GOT A NEW JOB.
I'M WORKING PART-TIME FOR CHLOE
MORGAN.
I'VE ONLY BEEN THERE A DAY,
BUT SO FAR I JUST LOVE IT.
AUDREY: OH, I AM SO PLEASED.
WELL, THAT CERTAINLY EXPLAINS
WHAT YOU'RE WEARING.
I MEAN, YOU LOOK VERY NICE.
ELIZABETH: WELL, I THOUGHT
I SHOULD LOOK A LITTLE DRESSIER
THAN WHEN I'M WAITING TABLES
AT KELLY'S.
ANYWAY, I'LL LET YOU GET BACK
TO WORK.
I JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT
THINGS ARE OK WITH ME.
AUDREY: ELIZABETH, I'VE BEEN
THINKING A LOT ABOUT WHAT
YOU SAID, AND I -- WELL, I THINK
IT FINALLY GOT THROUGH.
AS DIFFICULT AS IT IS FOR ME
TO ACCEPT, YOU ARE AN ADULT,
AND YOU CERTAINLY HAVE THE RIGHT
TO LIVE AND WORK WHEREVER
YOU PLEASE
AND MAKE WHATEVER FRIENDS
YOU CHOOSE.
I KNOW I HAVEN'T SAID THIS
RECENTLY, BUT I --
I AM SO PROUD OF YOU.

DR. MEADOWS: I'LL SEND
YOU A COPY OF THE TEST RESULTS
AS SOON AS THEY'RE IN.
CARLY: THAT'S OK.
I DON'T NEED A COPY
OF THE RESULTS.
I KNOW WHAT THEY'RE GOING
TO SAY.
THIS IS REALLY JUST
FOR THE COURTS.
BUT DO YOU THINK YOU COULD TELL
ME HOW THE BABY'S DOING?
DR. MEADOWS: WELL,
EVERYTHING SEEMS FINE.
THE BABY'S IN PERFECT HEALTH.
CARLY: THAT'S GOOD.
I'VE BEEN REALLY KIND
OF STRESSED-OUT LATELY,
YOU KNOW, AND I'VE HEARD THAT
STRESS ISN'T REALLY GOOD
FOR BABIES, SO --
DR. MEADOWS: WELL, THE MORE
YOU RELAX, THE BETTER IT'LL BE
FOR YOU AND FOR YOUR BABY.
I'LL SEE YOU NEXT MONTH
FOR YOUR CHECKUP.
CARLY: OH.
THANK YOU.
DR. MEADOWS: MM-HMM.
CARLY: HEY, DADDY.

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

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

[CHLOE LAUGHS]
JAX: YES! YES!

ALEXIS: WHO ELSE KNEW ABOUT
YOUR PAYOFF?

CARLY: I GOT TO SEE YOU.

STEFAN: THERE IS
NO CONTINGENCY PLAN.
THIS HAS TO HAPPEN TONIGHT.

LUKE: I THINK WE'VE FINALLY
FOUND MY SON.
