Note: The first five minutes
are missing because of breaking
news about a house explosion.

HELENA: WHERE YOUR PARENTS
KILLED MY HUSBAND,
YES.

LUKE: ALL THIS MADNESS
STARTED OFF THE COAST
OF ARGENTINA --
THE WEATHER MACHINE,
FREEZING THE WORLD.
LAURA: THE ICE PRINCESS
ISLAND?
LUKE: YEAH, HELENA'S WORKING
US BACKWARDS.
LAURA: FROM THE HAUNTED STAR.
LUKE: WHICH AT THE TIME
WAS CALLED THE TITAN.
LAURA: AND BELONGED
TO MIKKOS, WHO WE FOLLOWED
TO THE ICE PRINCESS ISLAND.
LUKE: WHERE HE WAS FROZEN
INTO A GOTHIC POPSICLE.
LAURA: RIGHT, AND SHE HOLDS
US RESPONSIBLE.
LUKE: I'M SURE SHE'S FED
LUCKY THE CASSADINE VERSION
OF ALL OF THAT.
LAURA: DO YOU THINK
SHE'S TRYING TO TURN LUCKY
AGAINST US?
OH, GOD.
YOU KNOW, WE'VE GOT TO GET
TO THAT ISLAND.
LUKE: YEAH.
WELL, MONSIEUR SOLEIL OVER THERE
SAID THAT THE CHARTER WAS DUE
BACK ANY TIME, SO ALL WE HAVE
TO DO IS TALK THE PILOT
INTO TAKING US BACK WHERE
HE CAME FROM.
LAURA: WHAT IF THE PILOT
WORKS FOR HELENA?
LUKE: THAT'S A CHANCE
WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE,
BABE.
I HAVE AN IDEA.

ALEXIS: WHAT ABOUT
MIGUEL MOREZ?
NED: WELL, HE'S GREAT
FOR THE LABEL, BUT WE DON'T MAKE
MUCH MONEY ON HIS CONCERTS.
ALEXIS: WELL,
WHEN HIS CONTRACT COMES UP,
LET ME TAKE A LOOK AT IT.
NED: I WILL.
V'S STRATEGY MADE SENSE
AT THE TIME, BUT THAT ASSUMED
THAT WE'D BE TURNING OUT NEW
ARTISTS.
ALEXIS: WELL, THAT'S WHAT
WE NEED MORE THAN ANYTHING.
NED: WE NEED SOMEONE TO HIT
THE ROAD RIGHT NOW.
ALEXIS: WE NEED SOMEONE WHO
ALREADY HAS PRODUCT,
THAT DOESN'T HAVE TO START
FROM SCRATCH.
NED: AND L&B GETS EVERYTHING.
ALEXIS: SOMEONE WHO HAS
EXPERIENCE, THAT HAS
A FOLLOWING.
NED: WHO CAN GET THE CASH
FLOWING OUR WAY.
ALEXIS: SOMEONE WHO COULD
SING A BALLAD AND THEN EVERYBODY
FALLS IN LOVE WITH THEM RIGHT
AWAY.
NED: WAIT A MINUTE.
ALEXIS: SOMEONE WHO HAS
THEIR OWN BACKSTAGE GROUPIE.
"EDDIE! EDDIE! EDDIE!"
NED: OR I GO BACK TO E.L.Q.
GRANDFATHER SAYS HE'LL
UNDERWRITE EVERYTHING IF I DO.
ALEXIS: AND YOU BELIEVE HIM?
NED: HE'S DESPERATE.
ALEXIS: THEY ALWAYS ARE.
NED: THAT'S WHY WE GO BACK.
ALEXIS: BUT YOU DON'T
HAVE TO.
NOBODY'S LIFE IS AT RISK.
NED: YOUR FAMILY DOES
TRUMP MINE.
ALEXIS: I LOVE IT WHEN
YOU GET COMPETITIVE.
NED: YOU JUST LOVE ME.
ALEXIS: I DO.
NED: KISS ME.
ALEXIS: KISS ME.
ELIZABETH: YOU GUYS ARE
SO FUNNY WHEN YOU DO THAT.
ALEXIS: DO WHAT?
WHAT IS SHE TALKING ABOUT?
NED: I HAVE NO IDEA.
WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT,
ELIZABETH?
ELIZABETH: HAS CHLOE
CALLED IN?
NED: NO. NOT YET.
ELIZABETH: I CHECKED
HER MESSAGES LAST NIGHT.
SHE'S LOSING CLIENTS LEFT
AND RIGHT.
ALEXIS: I WAS AFRAID OF THAT.
NED: WORD'S OUT ABOUT
HER HEALTH.
ELIZABETH: WELL,
NOBODY'S ACTUALLY BEEN SAYING
THAT, BUT I THINK GERTRUDE
FIGURED OUT HOW TO USE E-MAIL.
ALEXIS: SHE'S SCARING THEM
OUT OF JUMPING SHIP.
ELIZABETH: CHLOE'S A GREAT
DESIGNER, BUT NOT IF
SHE CAN'T WORK.
ALEXIS: HMM.
NED: CHLOE HAS MORE IMPORTANT
THINGS TO WORRY ABOUT THAN
CASH FLOW.
ALEXIS: WE KNEW THAT
SHE WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO BAIL
US OUT.
ELIZABETH: YOU TWO
ARE AMAZING.
ALEXIS: THIS IS HOW WE LOOK
WHEN WE'RE TERRIFIED.
NED: WE'LL THINK
OF SOMETHING.
ALEXIS: WE ALWAYS DO.

A.J.: ANY TAKERS?
NO?
BUT VODKA GOES SO WELL
WITH COLD CEREAL.
EDWARD: YOU NEVER COULD
FINISH ANYTHING.
ALAN: YOU'RE ENCOURAGING HIM.
A.J.: MMM.
FEEL BETTER NOW?
EDWARD: YOU'RE A DISGRACE.
LILA: A.J., PLEASE.
A.J.: I'M SORRY, GRANDMOTHER.
BUT THEY WAITED SO LONG
TO SEE ME.
HOW COULD I LET THEM DOWN?
EDWARD: IT'S THE ONLY THING
YOU'RE GOOD AT.
A.J.: HEY, I GAVE
THE QUARTERMAINE THING A SHOT.
GET IT? "SHOT"?
MONICA: WE DON'T NEED THIS,
A.J.
A.J.: YOU'RE RIGHT.
YOU DON'T.
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THIS FAMILY
NEEDS, BUT I'M NOT IT.
EDWARD: OBVIOUSLY.
ALAN: THAT'S ENOUGH,
BOTH OF YOU!
A.J.: WHAT'S THE PROBLEM,
HMM?
I'M FREE NOW.
I'M GOING TO HAVE A GREAT DAY.
I CAN FINALLY DO WHATEVER
I WANT.
I DON'T CARE ANYMORE!
EDWARD: I DON'T HAVE
TO LISTEN TO THIS.
A.J.: WHERE YOU GOING?
SAY, GRANDFATHER, HOW ARE THINGS
OVER AT THE OFFICE, HUH?
DOES ANYBODY MISS ME?
DOES MY SECRETARY SAY HELLO?
EDWARD: YOUR SECRETARY
IS LUCKY TO EVEN HAVE A JOB,
AND E.L.Q. IS BARELY HOLDING
ITS OWN.
ALAN: LOOK, HE KEPT
THAT COMPANY ON AN EVEN KEEL
WITH ABSOLUTELY NO HELP
FROM YOU.
EDWARD: BREAKING EVEN MEANS
LOSING MONEY IN THIS MARKET,
AND I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO EXPLAIN
THAT EITHER OF YOU.
ALAN: IF YOU HAD ONLY STAYED
OUT OF IT --
EDWARD: E.L.Q. WOULD BE
IN WORSE SHAPE THAN IT IS NOW.
A.J.: SO WHERE'S NED?
HMM?
ISN'T THIS THE PART WHERE
HE SAUNTERS IN AND SAVES
THE DAY?
EDWARD: THAT'S NONE
OF YOUR CONCERN.
A.J.: I GUESS HE TURNED
YOU DOWN AGAIN.
SO WHO'S LEFT?
JASON?
OH, NO. HE DITCHED US.
MONICA: WATCH IT, A.J.
A.J.: WHAT ABOUT MICHAEL?
EDWARD: WELL, HE'D DO
A BETTER JOB THAN YOU RIGHT NOW.
ALAN: FATHER, WHY DON'T
YOU JUST ADMIT THAT YOU FAILED?
YOU FAILED TO GET JASON BACK
HERE, WHICH WAS YOUR PLAN.
A.J.: BUT YOU GOT STUCK
WITH ME.
EDWARD: AND I GAVE
YOU A REAL OPPORTUNITY.
A.J.: OH, YOU KNOW,
NED ALWAYS LIKED WATCHING
YOU CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF.
NOW I KNOW WHY.
EDWARD: WHY DON'T YOU GO
FINISH YOUR CEREAL, A.J.
I LIKE YOU BETTER DRUNK.
A.J.: SAME HERE.
ALAN: HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY
SAY THAT AFTER HE'S WORKED
SO HARD TO GET SOBER?
EDWARD: WELL, NOT HARD
ENOUGH.
ALAN: HE CERTAINLY DIDN'T GET
THAT WAY BY HIMSELF.
EDWARD: OH, GOD.
I'VE GOT ONE WHINER
IN THE HOUSE, AND I'M NOT GOING
TO STAND AROUND AND LISTEN
TO ANOTHER.
I'M OUT OF HERE.
A.J.: WOW.
YOU KNOW, YOU'VE GOT TO LOVE
THAT GUY.
ALAN: A.J., I WAS GOING
TO STOP BY THAT EARLY-BIRD
MEETING BEFORE I GO TO WORK.
A.J.: WELL, THAT'S GREAT,
DAD.
ALAN: THEY'RE GOING TO BE
DISCUSSING THE FIRST STEP.
A.J.: I ADMIT
I AM POWERLESS OVER ALCOHOL
AND MY LIFE IS COMPLETELY
UNMANAGEABLE, SO WHO NEEDS
A MEETING?
ANYWAY, I'M ON MY WAY TO KELLY'S
FOR BREAKFAST.
AND IF YOU HAVE
ANY MORE QUESTIONS --
I DIDN'T THINK SO.
ALAN: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO
ABOUT HIM?
MONICA: THROW HIM OUT.

ELIZABETH: CAN I HELP
YOU GUYS WITH ANYTHING?
ALEXIS: YOU HAVEN'T BEEN
A SECRET ROCK STAR
ALL THIS TIME, HAVE YOU?
ELIZABETH: HEY,
WHAT ABOUT JUAN?
NED: HE'S GREAT, BUT --
ALEXIS: SOMETIMES IT TAKES
YEARS TO RECOUP EXPENSES
ON A NEW ARTIST.
NED: MM-HMM.
WHAT WE NEED IS A MIRACLE.
ELIZABETH: THAT'S ALL
I'M WAITING FOR.
ALEXIS: I KNOW.
NIKOLAS: HEY.
YOU WON'T BELIEVE THE CALL
I JUST GOT.
NED: YEAH?
NIKOLAS: IT'S ABOUT L&B.
ALEXIS: WE WON THE LOTTERY?
NIKOLAS: YOU KNOW
THAT PROMOTER IN NEW YORK?
ALEXIS: THE ONE WITH
THE PINK HAIR THAT HAS A CRUSH
ON YOU?
NIKOLAS: YEAH, WELL,
SHE WANTS TO BOOK AN L&B ACT
TO OPEN FOR A MAJOR BAND
FOR AN ENTIRE EAST COAST TOUR
AND POSSIBLY SOME DATES
IN THE FALL.
NED: MIGUEL IS NOT
AN OPENING ACT.
NIKOLAS: SHE WANTS
EDDIE MAINE.

ALAN: NOBODY IS KICKING
A.J. OUT OF THIS HOUSE.
MONICA: WELL, WHAT WOULD
YOU RATHER DO?
GIVE HIM A NICE, WARM PLACE
TO DRINK?
COVER ALL HIS BILLS
WHILE HE SELF-DESTRUCTS?
WELL, I WROTE THE BOOK
ON SUPPORTING ADDICTS, ALAN.
I KNOW ALL ABOUT IT,
AND I'M OVER IT.
ALAN: SO A.J.'S IN THE WRONG
PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME AGAIN?
MONICA: I DENIED
YOUR ADDICTION UNTIL IT WAS
TOO LATE.
AND EMILY --
WELL, BOTH OF US BARELY EVEN
RECOGNIZED A PROBLEM UNTIL
SHE ALMOST WALKED OFF A ROOF.
I'M NOT GOING TO HAVE THAT
HAPPEN AGAIN,
NOT TO THIS FAMILY.
ALAN: SO YOU ARE GOING
TO KICK A.J. OUT OF THIS HOUSE
TO CALM EVERYBODY DOWN?
THAT'S YOUR IDEA?
MONICA: WE'VE GIVEN HIM
CHANCE AFTER CHANCE AFTER
CHANCE.
ALAN: MONICA, HE NEEDS US.
MONICA: LETTING HIM ACT OUT
ISN'T HELPING HIM.
ALAN: HOW CAN YOU FORGET
THAT HE HELPED EMILY WHEN
SHE WAS TRYING TO GET OFF
HEROIN?
MONICA: WELL, WHAT HE'S DOING
TO EMILY MAKES IT EVEN WORSE.
ALAN: LISTEN,
HE LOST HIS JOB,
HE LOST HIS WIFE,
HE LOST HIS SON.
MONICA: HE HIRED SOMEONE
TO BURN DOWN HIS BROTHER'S
WAREHOUSE!
LOOK, HE MARRIED CARLY AGAINST
ALL OF OUR ADVICE.
NOW HE HAS TO SUFFER
THE CONSEQUENCES, AND THEY'RE
REALLY NOT THAT TOUGH.
ALAN: YOU HAVE NO IDEA
HOW HARD IT IS TO LET FATHER
DOWN.
MONICA: OH, YES, I DO KNOW.
MOST PEOPLE WOULD BE IN PRISON
BY NOW.
BUT IF EDWARD IS A.J.'S BIGGEST
PROBLEM --
ALAN: LISTEN --
IT IS NOT THAT SIMPLE!
MONICA: I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY
HE HAS TO BOTHER WITH EDWARD,
EDWARD, WHO ONLY UNDERMINES HIM,
WHO SETS HIM UP TO FAIL.
ALAN: LISTEN, IF WE TURN
OUR BACKS ON A.J. NOW --
MONICA: LISTEN.
LET ME ASK YOU SOMETHING.
DO YOU THINK THAT YOU ARE
HELPING A.J.,
OR ARE YOU JUST TRYING
TO BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE BEING
A GOOD FATHER?

A.J.: HANNAH.
NO, I WAS HOPING TO RUN
INTO YOU.
HANNAH: LOOK, WHATEVER
YOU HAVE TO SAY, I AM NOT
INTERESTED.
A.J.: HOW ABOUT I APOLOGIZE?

LUKE: OH --
ARE YOU THE PILOTS?
PILOT: WHAT ARE YOU DOING
HERE?
LUKE: WELL, SEE --
DID YOU JUST COME
FROM ARGENTINA?
SEE, I GOT TO GET BACK
TO ARGENTINA.
I GOT TO BE THERE
BY MIDDAY TOMORROW.
PILOT: HOW'D YOU GET
ON THIS PLANE?
LUKE: OH, WELL,
THAT'S A LONG STORY,
BUT SEE, I MISSED MY PLANE,
SO I GOT TO GET THERE.
MY WHOLE BUSINESS DEPENDS ON IT.
OH, I'M SORRY.
I'M BOB BILLINGTON OF
BILLINGTON'S BEEF AND BOVINE
BYPRODUCTS.
WE SUPPLY MOST OF THE BEEF
AND THE BOLOGNA TO
NORTH AMERICA, SO IT'S REAL
IMPORTANT.
IF I DON'T MAKE THIS MEETING
BY NEXT WEEK, EVERYBODY'S GOING
TO BE EATING FISH STICKS
AND VEGGIE BURGERS.
I TELL YOU WHAT I'LL DO.
I'LL GIVE YOU FOUR OR FIVE TIMES
YOUR USUAL FEE.
WHAT DO YOU SAY?
PILOT: WHAT DO YOU THINK?
SECOND PILOT: I THINK THIS
GUY'S WAY TOO ANXIOUS TO GET OUT
OF HERE.

HELENA: THERE.
LUCKY: THIS IS
THE WEATHER MACHINE.
HELENA: YES.
MIKKOS WAS A VISIONARY.
HOW HE DREAMED SUCH DREAMS
LESSER PEOPLE COULDN'T EVEN
IMAGINE, LET ALONE MAKE
A REALITY.
LUCKY: HE BUILT ALL THIS
WITHOUT A MICROCHIP.
THAT'S PRETTY AMAZING.
HELENA: HE WAS A GENIUS.
LUCKY: I'VE HEARD ABOUT THIS
MY ENTIRE LIFE.
IT SEEMS PRETTY SIMPLE,
I MEAN, AT LEAST ON PAPER.
HELENA: FOR SOMEONE AS CLEVER
AS YOU.
LUCKY: THE EXECUTION'S PRETTY
COMPLICATED, THOUGH.
I MEAN, BUT THE IDEA --
WEATHER IS BASICALLY MOISTURE
AND AIR.
HELENA: MM-HMM.
LUCKY: AND IF YOU COULD FIND
A WAY TO CONTROL IT LIKE
ELECTRICITY --
I CAN'T BELIEVE IT ACTUALLY
WORKED.
HELENA: IT WOULD HAVE.
LUCKY: EXCEPT MIKKOS FROZE
PORT CHARLES.
HELENA: IS THAT WHAT
YOUR PARENTS TOLD YOU?
LUCKY, IT WAS A MINOR ACCIDENT.
NOW, MIKKOS WAS ONLY --
HE WAS ONLY TESTING THE MACHINE.
BUT YOUR PARENTS PANICKED
AND THEY FRIGHTENED EVERYONE
ELSE.
NO, IF NOT FOR LUKE AND LAURA,
MY MIKKOS WOULD HAVE REALIZED
HIS VISION.
THE WORLD WOULD HAVE BEEN
IN ORDER --
NO FLOODS,
NO DROUGHTS,
RAIN FORESTS EVERYWHERE,
NO MORE DESERT,
ONLY FARMLANDS.
NO ONE WOULD HAVE BEEN HUNGRY.
OUR PLANET WOULD HAVE BEEN
A SAFE SANCTUARY.
BUT YOUR PARENTS TRACKED HIM
TO THIS ISLAND.
THEY HUNTED HIM DOWN
WITHOUT MERCY, LIKE AN ANIMAL.
MY MIKKOS DIED FOR HIS DREAMS
ALL BECAUSE OF THEM.
LUCKY: YOU MUST WANT REVENGE.

ALEXIS: SURELY EDDIE MAINE
COULD SURVIVE ONE MORE TOUR.
NIKOLAS: IF YOU CHOOSE TO GO
OUT NOW, I WILL HAVE TIME TO SET
UP LOCAL TV SPOTS.
ALEXIS: WE REALLY NEED
THE CASH.
NIKOLAS: EDDIE MAINE
IS ESTABLISHED.
WE PROBABLY WON'T HAVE TO PAY
FOR MUCH PROMO AT ALL.
ALEXIS: I LOVE THE WAY
YOU THINK.
NIKOLAS: THANK YOU.
LOOK, THIS TOUR COULD SAVE
YOUR COMPANY, NED.
WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
NED: WHO RUNS L&B WHILE
I'M GONE?
ALEXIS: WHY DO YOU THINK
GOD MADE THE INTERNET
AND CELL PHONES?
NIKOLAS: EXACTLY.
YOU ONLY HAVE TO COMMIT
TO THE EAST COAST.
ALEXIS: YOU CAN RUN
THE COMPANY FROM THE ROAD.
NIKOLAS: IF YOU TURN DOWN
THIS TOUR NOW, YOU MAY NOT HAVE
A COMPANY TO WORRY ABOUT.
NED: EDDIE MAINE DOESN'T
EXIST ANYMORE.
NIKOLAS: SO YOU WON'T EVEN
CONSIDER IT?
NED: WE'LL HAVE TO THINK
OF SOMETHING ELSE.
WAIT A MINUTE.
DON'T WE HAVE A MEETING
AT THE GRILL RIGHT NOW?
ALEXIS: YES,
WITH THE SOUTHWEST DISTRIBUTORS.
NED: LET'S GO.
LET'S GET TO THEM BEFORE
GRANDFATHER DOES.
NIKOLAS: I DON'T GET IT.
L&B NEEDS THE MONEY.
EDDIE MAINE CAN BRING IT IN.
WHAT'S THE PROBLEM?
ELIZABETH: SOMETIMES
YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GO BACK
TO WHERE YOU WERE.
NIKOLAS: BUT EDDIE MAINE
WAS GREAT.
ELIZABETH: WHEN YOU HAVE
SOMETHING THAT SPECIAL,
SOMETIMES IT'S IMPOSSIBLE
TO BELIEVE YOU'LL EVER HAVE IT
AGAIN.

HELENA: I'VE NEVER SOUGHT
REVENGE, LUCKY.
ALL I WANT IS TO HELP YOU.
YOU'VE BEEN THE VICTIM
OF YOUR PARENTS' WHIMS
AND PASSIONS, AS HAVE I.
AND MY POOR MIKKOS,
HE SURRENDERED HIS LIFE TO LUKE
AND LAURA,
AND IN SOME WAYS, SO HAVE YOU.
NO, THE MORE YOU CAN LEARN ABOUT
THE CASSADINES,
THE MORE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHO
YOUR PARENTS REALLY ARE.

LUKE: WHAT THE HELL
ARE YOU DOING?
I MEAN, THIS IS RIDICULOUS.
YOU CAN'T DO THIS.
PILOT: I HAVE THE RIGHT
TO DETAIN ANYBODY ON MY PLANE.
LUKE: WHAT CRIME DID
I COMMIT?
PILOT: YOU'RE OBVIOUSLY
TRYING TO SMUGGLE SOMETHING.
LAURA: AND HE ALMOST GOT AWAY
WITH IT, DIDN'T HE?
THE AIRPORT SECURITY HERE IS
THE WORST I HAVE SEEN IN YEARS.
AGENT ANGELA DREVER, F.A.A.
MY PARTNER AND I ARE WORKING
UNDERCOVER IN THIS REGION
TO DETERMINE WHETHER OR NOT
THE STANDARDS COMPLY
WITH THE U.S. STANDARDS.
AGENT SPITZ, WERE YOU STOPPED
AT ANY POINT DURING
YOUR APPROACH TO THE AIRCRAFT?
LUKE: NO, MA'AM.
LAURA: NO.
WERE YOU ASKED TO PRESENT I.D.?
LUKE: NO, MA'AM.
LAURA: BY THE PILOT?
LUKE: NO.
LAURA: BY THE CO-PILOT?
LUKE: I WAS NOT.
LAURA: TO YOUR KNOWLEDGE,
WERE THERE ANY SECURITY MEASURES
TAKEN ONBOARD THIS AIRCRAFT
OR DURING YOUR APPROACH
FROM THE AIRPORT?
LUKE: I JUST WALKED UP
TO THE PLANE AND GOT RIGHT ON.
LAURA: YOU REALIZE THIS FALLS
FAR BELOW ACCEPTED INTERNATIONAL
STANDARDS.
PILOT: I REALIZE SOMETHING'S
OFF HERE.
LAURA: FINE. FINE.
YOU MAY PARK THE AIRCRAFT
AND CALL YOUR SUPERIORS AND CALL
THE POLICE AND LET THE KNOW THAT
YOU ALMOST LET A TERRORIST
ONBOARD, AND THEN YOU HAVE
TO MEET ME AT THE EMBASSY.
IT IS MY RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE
A FULL REPORT OF THIS,
AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO PRESENT
ALL SIDES.
SO LET'S GO.
LUKE: COULDN'T YOU CUT THEM
SOME SLACK, AGENT DRIEVER?
LAURA: DREVER.
LUKE: DREVER.
LAURA: WHY WOULD I DO THAT,
THOUGH, WHEN THE AIRCRAFT
AND THE AIRPORT ARE SO UNSAFE?
LUKE: WELL, THEY DID STOP ME,
AFTER ALL.
DOESN'T THAT COUNT FOR
SOMETHING?
LAURA: BUT THINK OF ALL
THE DAMAGE YOU COULD HAVE
CAUSED.
LUKE: WELL, IT IS WITHIN
YOUR AUTHORITY TO GIVE THEM
A SEVERE VERBAL WARNING.
LAURA: I RARELY EXERCISE
THAT OPTION.
LUKE: OH, BROTHER,
DON'T I KNOW IT.
BUT, BROTHER, BELIEVE ME,
SHE'S TOUGH.
SO DO YOU PROMISE TO DO BETTER?
MAYBE YOU'LL BE MORE CAREFUL
NEXT TIME?
LAURA: WAIT A MINUTE.
I HAVEN'T AUTHORIZED ANY VERBAL
WARNING YET.
LUKE: WELL, THEY'VE BEEN
FLYING ALL NIGHT, AGENT DREVER.
AND I --
YOU KNOW, GIVE THEM A BREAK.
JUST ONE LITTLE BREAK.
DO THEM A FAVOR.
COME ON.
JUST THIS ONCE.
LAURA: OH.
FINE.
LUKE: GREAT.
I'M TELLING, YOU SHE'S REALLY
LETTING YOU OFF LIGHT HERE.
SHE'S DOING YOU A FAVOR.
THIS BROAD IS TOUGH.
LAURA: I HEREBY ISSUE
A FORMAL VERBAL WARNING
IN MY CAPACITY
AS AN F.A.A. INVESTIGATOR.
THE SECURITY MEASURES ONBOARD
THIS AIRCRAFT AND IN THE AIRPORT
ARE CLEARLY SUBSTANDARD.
AND IF YOU DON'T CORRECT THEM
WITHIN 30 DAYS, YOU WILL BE
SUBJECT TO SUBSTANTIAL FINES
AND A POSSIBLE BAN ON
AIR TRAFFIC IN THIS REGION.
NOW YOU MAY REMOVE
THE HANDCUFFS.

ALAN: WHAT IS SO TERRIBLE
ABOUT WANTING TO BE A GOOD
FATHER NOW, ESPECIALLY AFTER
THE WAY I TREATED A.J. WHEN
HE WAS GROWING UP?
MONICA: YOU'RE NOT
HELPING HIM, ALAN.
DON'T YOU SEE THAT?
ALAN: I REALIZE THAT
THIS HOUSE MIGHT NOT BE
THE BEST PLACE FOR HIM.
MONICA: WELL, YES,
WHEN YOU WERE SO SICK,
YOU DID NOT WANT TO COME HOME.
ALAN: BUT YOU NEVER TURNED ME
AWAY.
MONICA: WHY DO YOU WANT
A.J. TO BE IN A PLACE WHERE
YOU KNOW HE'S NOT GOING
TO GET WELL?
ALAN: LISTEN TO ME.
WHEN I SAID THIS PLACE MADE
ME SICK, THAT I DIDN'T WANT
TO BE HERE, IT'S BECAUSE I WAS
BLAMING MY FAMILY FOR
MY ADDICTION.
MONICA: REFUSING TO ACCEPT
RESPONSIBILITY.
EXACTLY LIKE A.J.
ALAN: NO, NO, NO.
I JUST NEEDED TO BE AWAY
FROM HERE FOR A WHILE.
MONICA, IF YOU HAD SAID TO ME,
"GO AWAY, I DON'T WANT
YOU TO COME BACK TILL YOU'RE
CLEAN AND SOBER," I COULD STILL
BE WANDERING AROUND ON COURTLAND
STREET.
MONICA: I'M NOT SAYING
THAT WE SHOULD DUMP
A.J. ON COURTLAND STREET.
BUT HE IS NOT GOING TO HIT
BOTTOM IF HE STAYS HERE.
ALAN: YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
THIS.
MONICA: OH, THAT'S RIGHT.
YOU KNOW ALL ABOUT IT.
I JUST -- I KEEP FORGETTING.
ALAN: YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BEG
FOR DRUGS,
TO HAVE EVERY CELL
IN YOUR BODY SCREAMING,
TO REALLY, REALLY, MONICA,
WANT TO DIE.
MONICA: I KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE
TO WAKE UP IN THE MIDDLE
OF THE NIGHT AND REALIZE I HAVE
NO IDEA WHERE YOU ARE,
TO WATCH YOU LOSE A CAREER THAT
YOU LOVE,
TO WORRY EVERY TIME THAT
PHONE RANG,
AND TO BLAME MYSEL
ALAN: I WOULD HAVE NEVER
SURVIVED JAIL WITHOUT YOU.
MONICA: YOU DIDN'T EVEN
WANT ME TO COME AND VISIT YOU.
ALAN: I DIDN'T WANT
YOU TO SEE ME THE WAY THAT
I WAS.
I KNEW THAT YOU LOVED ME
AND THAT YOU WANTED ME
TO COME BACK.
MONICA: SEE?
THE ONLY PERSON YOU WANTED
TO HURT WAS YOURSELF.
ALAN: YES, AND THE ONLY
PEOPLE I WOUND UP HURTING
WAS MY FAMILY, THE PEOPLE
I LOVE MOST.
MONICA: A.J. DELIBERATELY
HURT US, ALAN.
YOU NEVER DID THAT.
DON'T YOU SEE THE DIFFERENCE?
ALAN: A.J. HAS A CHRONIC
DISEASE, AND HE HAS RELAPSED.
AS A DOCTOR, I CANNOT JUSTIFY
THROWING HIM OUT OF THE HOUSE.
MONICA: AS A DOCTOR,
I KNOW THAT FAMILIES CAN
INTENSIFY AND AGGRAVATE
THE DISEASE OF AN ALCOHOLIC.
ALAN: LISTEN --
WHEN I WAS TRYING TO KICK PILLS,
A.J. WAS THERE FOR ME.
IT DIDN'T MATTER THAT I HAD
TREATED HIM LIKE A SECOND-CLASS
CITIZEN ALL HIS LIFE,
THAT I WAS CRUEL AND UNFORGIVING
WHEN HE WAS DRINKING,
THAT I GAVE HIM ABSOLUTELY
NO HELP WHEN HE WAS TRYING
TO GET SOBER.
HE FORGOT ABOUT ALL THAT
AND HE WAS THERE TO HELP ME
IN EVERY WAY THAT HE COULD.
MONICA: HE'S MANIPULATING
YOU.
ALAN: YOU ARE JUST DETERMINED
TO PUNISH HIM, AREN'T YOU?
MONICA: DON'T YOU EVEN START
TO SAY THIS HAS ANYTHING TO DO
WITH JASON, PLEASE.
ALAN: YOU STILL BELIEVE THAT
A.J. IS RESPONSIBLE
FOR THAT ACCIDENT,
YOU CANNOT FORGIVE HIM
FOR DRIVING DRUNK,
YOU CAN'T EVEN FORGIVE HIM THAT
HE DIDN'T EVEN GET HURT
IN THE WRECK.
MONICA: YOU KNOW WHAT I BLAME
A.J. FOR?
I BLAME HIM FOR BRINGING CARLY
INTO THIS HOUSE WHEN I BEGGED
HIM NOT TO.
I BLAME HIM FOR NOT COMPROMISING
FOR MICHAEL'S SAKE,
FOR SABOTAGING JASON
FOR JOINT CUSTODY.
AND THE WAREHOUSE --
I BLAME A.J. FOR THINKING HE HAD
A RIGHT TO BURN THAT DOWN.
ALAN: YOU REALLY BELIEVE THAT
JASON WOULD STILL BE HERE IF IT
WEREN'T FOR A.J.
MONICA: YES, I DO.
ALAN: AND YOU'RE GOING
TO MAKE HIM PAY FOR IT
NO MATTER WHAT.
WELL, I'M STILL ANGRY WITH HIM,
TOO, MONICA.
BUT YOU WANT TO THINK ABOUT
ONE THING --
YOU HAVE ALREADY LOST ONE SON.
YOU CUT A.J. OFF AND YOU'RE
GOING TO LOSE ANOTHER ONE.

A.J.: I DIDN'T MEAN
TO OFFEND YOU.
MY SUGGESTION --
HANNAH: YOU MEAN PROPOSITION.
A.J.: YEAH.
LOOK, I JUST THOUGHT THAT THAT
WOULD BE THE BEST WAY TO PAY
BACK SONNY AND CARLY.
I'M A DRUNK. OK?
THAT'S HOW I THINK.
HANNAH: WELL, YOU KNOW,
SOONER OR LATER, PEOPLE END UP
PAYING FOR WHAT THEY DO WRONG.
A.J.: ANYWAY,
FROM ONE WOUNDED PARTY
TO ANOTHER --
HANNAH: NO -- ONE SURVIVOR
TO ANOTHER.
A.J.: WHATEVER.
I DIDN'T MEAN TO BE A JERK.
HANNAH: HEY, YOU KNOW,
LOVE CAN MAKE YOU DO CRAZY
THINGS.
TRUST ME, I UNDERSTAND THAT.
A.J.: SO WILL YOU THINK
ABOUT FORGIVING ME?
HANNAH: CONSIDER YOURSELF
FORGIVEN.
TAGGERT: WHATEVER THIS
IS ABOUT, IT'S OVER.

A.J.: IF YOU'LL JUST LISTEN
FOR A SECOND --
TAGGERT: WHOA, WHOA, WHOA.
WHAT, DID YOU THINK YOU CAN GO
AROUND JUST INSULTING WOMEN JUST
BECAUSE YOU'RE A QUARTERMAINE?
HANNAH: TAGGERT,
HE APOLOGIZED.
A.J.: WHICH DOESN'T MAKE IT
ALL RIGHT.
BUT I REALLY AM SORRY.
AND I APPRECIATE YOU
STEPPING IN.
I COULD HAVE BEEN SAYING
ANYTHING.
TAGGERT: UH-HUH.
A.J.: YEAH, WELL,
I'M LATE FOR BREAKFAST.
EXCUSE ME.

HANNAH: YOU'RE SWEET.
TAGGERT: SWEET?
THAT'S COLD.
HANNAH: YOU DON'T HAVE
TO DEFEND ME, TAGGERT.
NOT ANYMORE.

EMILY: HEY.
ELIZABETH: HEY.
EMILY: HAS ANYONE SEEN JUAN?
NIKOLAS: DON'T YOU HAVE
SCHOOL TODAY?
EMILY: THERE'S A TEACHERS'
MEETING.
DID HE CALL OR ANYTHING?
ELIZABETH: EMILY,
WHAT HAPPENED?
EMILY: I ACTUALLY THOUGHT
THAT A.J. WOULD STOP DRINKING.
PRETTY STUPID OF ME.
ELIZABETH: I'M SO SORRY.
NIKOLAS: IS THERE ANYTHING
I CAN DO?
EMILY: THROW HIM OFF
THE DOCKS.
JUST KIDDING.
SO, HAS ANYONE HEARD ANYTHING?
ELIZABETH: BELIEVE ME,
YOU'D KNOW.
EMILY: DO YOU EVER THINK
ABOUT GOING AFTER LUCKY?
I MEAN, THE THREE OF US?
YOU KNOW, LIKE GOING TO LOOK
FOR THE FOURTH MUSKETEER?
NIKOLAS: SURE.
ELIZABETH: I TRY NOT TO.
EMILY: I'M SORRY, ELIZABETH.
I SHOULDN'T HAVE SAID ANYTHING.
ELIZABETH: NO. NO, NO, NO.
ANY WAY I THINK ABOUT IT HURTS.
JUAN: HEY.
EMILY: HI.
JUAN: ARE YOU OK?
EMILY: YEAH.
I AM NOW THAT YOU'RE HERE.
JUAN: OH, EM, I HOPE THIS
MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER.
EMILY: WHAT IS IT, A SONG?
JUAN: I WROTE IT.
JUAN: I HOPE YOU LIKE IT.
ELIZABETH: WHY DO YOU THINK
LUKE AND LAURA HAVE BEEN GONE
SO LONG?
NIKOLAS: I TRY NOT TO THINK
ABOUT IT.
ELIZABETH: DO YOU THINK
IT MEANS THAT LUCKY ISN'T OUT
THERE?
NIKOLAS: OR MAYBE THEY RAN
INTO STEFAN AND WHO KNOWS.
ELIZABETH: YEAH.
WELL, DRIVING OURSELVES CRAZY
ISN'T GOING TO HELP, RIGHT?
NIKOLAS: DO YOU WANT TO GO
CHECK OUT THAT NEW GALLERY
ON GREEN STREET?
ELIZABETH: THE ONE
WITH THE OUTSIDER ART?
NIKOLAS: YEAH, MAYBE IT COULD
GET OUR MINDS OFF OF EVERYTHING,
YOU KNOW?
ELIZABETH: YEAH, OR SCARE US
SILLY.
NIKOLAS: WELL, THAT WORKS
FOR ME.
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW WHAT?
FROM THIS POINT ON --
AT LEAST FOR THE NEXT
SEVEN SECONDS --
I'M GOING TO LEAVE IT ALL UP
TO LUKE AND LAURA.
NIKOLAS: ALL RIGHT.

LUKE: THANK YOU, SIR.
PILOT: SURE.
LAURA: THANK YOU
FOR YOUR COOPERATION.
YOU REALIZE, OF COURSE,
THAT HE COULD HAVE BEEN ARMED
OR CARRYING A BOMB.
I CAN'T OVEREMPHASIZE ENOUGH
THE NECESSITY FOR CHANGE HERE.
AGENT SPITZ.
LUKE: AGENT DRIEVER.
LAURA: DREVER.
LUKE: DREVER.
CARRY ON.

TAGGERT: I'M NOT SAYING
YOU NEED TO BE RESCUED.
HANNAH: WELL, MAYBE I DID
THEN, BUT NOW --
TAGGERT: LOOK, LOOK,
YOU DIDN'T LET CORINTHOS RUIN
YOUR LIFE.
THAT'S NO SMALL ACCOMPLISHMENT.
HANNAH: EVERYTHING FEELS
DIFFERENT AFTER SONNY.
I'M STILL THINKING ABOUT LEAVING
THE F.B.I.
TAGGERT: WELL,
THAT'S YOUR CALL.
HANNAH: BUT WHAT?
TAGGERT: BUT YOU'RE
A GOOD COP.
HANNAH: THANK YOU.
TAGGERT: AND I'D MISS WORKING
WITH YOU.
HANNAH: SAME HERE.
TAGGERT: WHY IS THAT,
BECAUSE I'M NOT BAD FOR A LOCAL?
HANNAH: NO.
IT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE SO CUTE.
TAGGERT: SHE FINALLY NOTICED.

A.J.: HI.
MONICA: HOW WAS
YOUR BREAKFAST?
A.J.: I DIDN'T DRINK IT,
IF THAT'S WHAT YOU MEAN.
MONICA: I REALLY DON'T KNOW
WHAT TO SAY, A.J.
A.J.: I THINK I DO.
MONICA: OK.
OK, I'M LISTENING.
A.J.: THAT THING
WITH THE CEREAL WAS WAY OUT
OF LINE.
MONICA: I'M GLAD YOU REALIZE
THAT.
DID YOU APOLOGIZE TO LILA?
A.J.: NO, BUT I --
MONICA: WHY NOT?
A.J.: I DIDN'T GET A CHANCE,
BUT I WILL LATER.
YOU KNOW, AND BESIDES,
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?
NO MATTER WHAT I SAY,
IT'S GOING TO BE WRONG.
MONICA: OH, EVER THE VICTIM.
A.J.: IF I HAD DONE HALF
THE THINGS TO THIS FAMILY
THAT JASON --
MONICA: NO, NO, YOU DON'T
WANT TO DISCUSS JASON WITH ME.
A.J.: OH, OF COURSE NOT.
OF COURSE NOT.
YOU'RE ALWAYS WILLING TO GIVE
HIM A SECOND CHANCE,
A MILLIONTH CHANCE.
MONICA: BECAUSE YOU WRAPPED
THAT CAR AROUND THE TREE.
JASON DIDN'T.
HE SUSTAINED AN INJURY THAT
WOULD HAVE KILLED MOST OF US.
BUT HE FOUGHT BACK,
TO A DIFFERENT LIFE.
DO I LIKE THAT?
NO.
DO I MISS HIM?
EVERY SINGLE MOMENT.
WOULD I GIVE HIM 100 CHANCES?
YOU CAN COUNT ON IT
BECAUSE JASON NEVER DELIBERATELY
HURT ANYBODY IN THIS FAMILY,
WHICH IS MORE THAN I CAN SAY
FOR YOU.
IS THIS WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO BE
DOING FROM NOW ON,
JUST LOOKING TO HURT EVERYONE
IN THIS FAMILY?
A.J.: I'M ONLY RETURNING
THE FAVOR.

JUAN: EMILY?
EMILY: THIS IS BEAUTIFUL.
JUAN: I WROTE IT FOR YOU.
EMILY: I NEVER THOUGHT ANYONE
COULD WRITE A SONG ABOUT ME.
NOT EVER.
JUAN: I DIDN'T REALIZE
I COULD WRITE ONE
UNTIL YOU.

HELENA: WHAT ARE
YOU THINKING?
LUCKY: IF MY PARENTS FIND OUT
I'M ALIVE --
HELENA: THEY WON'T.
LUCKY: THEY WILL COME FOR ME.
HELENA: I'M NOT WORRIED
ABOUT THAT.
NOT IN THE LEAST.

LAURA: THANK YOU.
LUKE: STILL A LONG FLIGHT
TO ARGENTINA.
LAURA: WE'LL GET THERE.
LUKE: I KNOW.
LAURA: I MEAN, AT LEAST
WE KNOW WHERE WE'RE GOING NOW.
A COUPLE HOURS AGO WE DIDN'T.
SO WE'LL GET TO ARGENTINA,
AND THEN WE'LL TAKE IT
FROM THERE.
LUKE: YOU WERE PRETTY HANDY
WITH THAT BADGE BACK THERE.
LAURA: YOU KNOW, LULU PICKED
THAT UP FROM A FOREST RANGER
ON A FIELD TRIP, AND SHE ASKED
ME TO SAVE IT BECAUSE E WANTED
TO SHOW IT TO YOU.
LUKE: I'LL TRY TO ACT
SURPRISED WHEN SHE DOES.
LAURA: IT'S AMAZING HOW IT
COMES BACK, ISN'T IT?
LUKE: WHERE'D YOU GET
THE NAMES?
LAURA: FROM THAT STORY THAT
WE USED TO READY LUCKY WHEN
HE WAS A LITTLE BOY --
"FIRST DOG ON THE MOON."
LUKE: OH, YEAH, SURE --
THE BEAGLE IN THE SPACE SUIT.
LAURA: RIGHT, AND SPITZ
AND DREVER WERE THE BAD GUYS.
LUKE: THEY WERE CHOWS,
I THINK.
LAURA: RIGHT, BUT THE BRAVE
DOG ALWAYS MADE IT TO THE MOON
AND HOME IN TIME FOR DINNER.
LUKE: RIGHT.
WELL, WITH ANY LUCK,
WE'LL HAVE OUR BOY HOME
FOR DINNER.

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

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

ALEXIS: DON'T YOU THINK
YOU'RE MOVING HER IN HERE
A LITTLE TOO QUICKLY?

MRS. LANSBURY: WHAT IS THIS
ABOUT?
ANDREAS: IT'S ABOUT
LUCKY SPENCER.

CARLY: PROMISE ME THAT SHE IS
NOT GOING TO LOSE HER LIFE
BECAUSE OF WHAT I DID.

ROY: WHATEVER IT TAKES,
NO MATTER WHAT I HAVE TO DO,
BOBBIE GETS OUT OF THIS ALIVE.
