JAX: RIGHT.
AFTER EDWARD BANISHED
YOU FROM THE FAMILY, NED TOOK
CONTROL OF YOUR FINANCES.
BUT I HAVE MANAGED TO FIND
A LOOPHOLE THAT WILL ALLOW
YOU TO SELL ALL YOUR
E.L.Q. SHARE TO ME.
UH-HUH.
YES, AND NED AND EDWARD WON'T
EVEN REALIZE IT UNTIL IT'S TOO
LATE.
RIGHT.
SO, TRACY, ARE YOU INTERESTED?

CHLOE: FRESH FROM THE GARDEN.
LILA: OH, THANK YOU, DEAR.
CHLOE: OH, YOU'RE WELCOME.
LILA: OH, THEY'RE ALMOST
AS LOVELY AS YOU.
CHLOE: I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S
SPRING ALREADY.
IT FEELS LIKE WE JUST MET
YESTERDAY AND YOU SHOWED ME
THE GARDEN AND THE GAZEBO.
A LOT'S HAPPENED SINCE THEN,
HASN'T IT?
LILA: HOW ARE YOU, MY DEAR?
CHLOE: I'M TRYING TO BELIEVE
THAT THE MEDICATION TONY
PRESCRIBED IS WORKING.
BUT --
LILA: BUT WHAT?
CHLOE: IT'S JUST WAIT
AND SEE, YOU KNOW?
THERE'S JUST NOTHING PROMISED.
IT'S HARD.
LILA: WHAT ABOUT JAX?
CHLOE: I WISH I COULD JUST
MAKE IT EASIER ON HIM SOMEHOW.
LILA: IF JAX IS LIKE EDWARD,
HE'S DEALING WITH THE SITUATION
THE BEST WAY THAT HE KNOWS HOW.
SOME OF EDWARD'S BEST BUSINESS
VENTURES CAME FROM THE NEED
FOR DISTRACTION FROM ADVERSITY.
WE CAN'T CHANGE OUR MEN, DEAR.
BUT WOULD WE WANT TO?
LUCY: YOO-HOO!
ANYBODY HOME?
OH, YOU ARE HOME.
I AM SO EXCITED, TWO OF MY VERY
FAVORITE PEOPLE IN THE WHOLE
WIDE WORLD RIGHT HERE,
RIGHT NOW, WHEN I NEED
YOU THE MOST.

EMILY: HEY!
JUAN: HEY.
WHAT'S THAT LOOK FOR?
EMILY: YOU ARE GOING TO BE
SMILING WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT
YOU WANT TO HEAR.
REMEMBER WHEN I SAID THAT I WAS
GOING TO FIND A WAY TO FINANCE
YOUR SINGING CAREER?
JUAN: YEAH.
EMILY: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.
JUAN: WHAT HAPPENED?
EMILY: OK, I WAS LYING IN BED
LAST NIGHT, OK?
IT WAS REALLY LATE, AND I WAS
PLOTTING.
JUAN: SCHEMING.
EMILY: HATCHING.
JUAN: HATCHING.
CALL ME NEXT TIME THAT HAPPENS.
EMILY: OK, AND THEN ALL
OF A SUDDEN IT HIT ME -- HELLO!
THERE'S ALL THIS MONEY JUST
SITTING AROUND BEGGING TO BE
USED!
JUAN: A PILE OF CASH
IN YOUR ROOM.
HOW DID I MISS THAT?
EMILY: NO, NOT IN MY ROOM.
IN THE BANK.
IN A VAULT.
MY TRUST FUND, HELLO?
THIS IS WHERE YOU TELL ME I'M
BRILLIANT.
JUAN: RIGHT, EXCEPT FOR ONE
THING.
YOUR FOLKS, WHAT ARE THEY GOING
TO SAY WHEN YOU TRY TO GET IT?
EMILY: WELL, I -- I --
I HAPPEN TO HAVE A PLAN.
JUAN: HMM, YOU'RE GOING
TO NEED A PLAN.
EMILY: DON'T WORRY, KID.
I'M GOING TO MAKE YOU A MAJOR
STAR.

MONICA: EXCUSE ME.
RAE: AUDREY, HELLO.
AUDREY: OH, HELLO, RAE.
TONY MENTIONED THAT YOU WERE
HERE ON A QUEST --
RAE: OH, YES.
AUDREY: TRACKING DOWN AN OLD
FAMILY BIBLE?
RAE: YES.
I'M AFRAID IT'S BEEN A BIT
OF A WILD-GOOSE CHASE,
BUT I THINK IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
PART OF A DONATION TO
THE HOSPITAL, AND IF I COULD
JUST LOOK THROUGH YOUR CARTS --
IF YOU DON'T MIND.
AUDREY: OH, NO, OF COURSE.
HELP YOURSELF.
RAE: YOU'RE AN ANGEL.
YOU REALLY ARE.
YOU KNOW, AUDREY?
AUDREY: HMM?
RAE: THE RECORDS ARE VERY
IMPORTANT TO ME.
AUDREY: WELL, I HOPE YOU FIND
WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR, THEN.
RAE: THANK YOU.
AUDREY: MM-HMM.
ALAN: HELLO, RAE.
RAE: HELLO, YOURSELF.
ALAN: ANY LUCK?
RAE: NO, NO, NOT YET.
BUT I AM GOING TO SNARE
THE FIRST VOLUNTEER I SEE.
STEFAN: YES, I UNDERSTAND.
BUT IF THE SPENCER BOY HAS NOT
RETURNED TO PORT CHARLES,
WHAT DO YOU DO?
YOU GO TO THE LIST OF ALTERNATE
DESTINATIONS I SUPPLIED YOU.
I DON'T CARE WHAT IT COSTS.
FIND HIM!
ALAN: SO YOU'VE DEIGNED
TO SHOW UP.
STEFAN: I'M SORRY?
ALAN: FOR WHAT?
YOUR UNEXPLAINED ABSENCE
DURING THE NURSES' STRIKE,
FOR PLACING US AT THE MERCY
OF AX-WIELDING ACCOUNTANTS,
OR POSSIBLY FOR LEAVING ME
TO SHOULDER YOUR BURDEN?
STEFAN: YOU KNOW, ALAN,
I DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT
YOUR PROBLEMS OR THE HOSPITAL'S.
DID YOU THINK I PULLED THIS
MISMANAGED INFIRMARY
FROM THE EDGE OF RUIN OUT
OF THE GOODNESS OF MY HEART?
THE SOLE REASON I EVER TOSSED
A DIME YOUR WAY WAS TO PLEASE
MY NEPHEW.
NOW, IF THE HOSPITAL CONTINUES
TO BE PROBLEMATIC, I'LL WITHDRAW
MY FUNDING ENTIRELY.

NIKOLAS: MAYBE WE'RE GOING
ABOUT THIS THE WRONG WAY.
ELIZABETH: WELL, MAYBE IT'S
JUST A PIPE DREAM TO THINK HE'D
COME HERE AT ALL, THAT HE'D
REMEMBER THAT THAT WAS
THE APARTMENT WE WANTED AFTER
ALL THIS TIME.
NIKOLAS: OR MAYBE IT'S JUST
THAT WE HAVEN'T GIVEN HIM ENOUGH
TIME.
JUST BECAUSE THAT LANDLORD
HASN'T SEEN LUCKY DOESN'T MEAN
THAT HE WON'T SHOW UP.
ELIZABETH: I GUESS I WAS JUST
HOPING THAT HE'D KNOW I WAS
HERE, YOU KNOW,
THAT OUR PATHS WOULD MAGICALLY
INTERSECT RIGHT WHERE WE WANTED
TO START OUR LIFE TOGETHER.
I'M SOUNDING RIDICULOUS, HUH?
NIKOLAS: HOPEFUL'S MORE
LIKE IT.
ELIZABETH: BUT, YOU KNOW,
GOING BACK THERE, IT WAS KIND
OF LIKE I THOUGHT WE HAD
THE WRONG ADDRESS, YOU KNOW,
BECAUSE WITHOUT LUCKY, IT JUST
SEEMED SO DIFFERENT, WRONG.
YOU KNOW, I GOT THIS CHILL GOING
UP THE BACK OF MY NECK,
LIKE WHAT IF I JUST DREAMED ALL
THIS UP AND NONE OF IT EVEN
EXISTED?
NIKOLAS: LIKE YOUR FUTURE'S
JUST DISINTEGRATING RIGHT
IN FRONT OF YOU.
ELIZABETH: OH, NIKOLAS,
I'M -- I'M SORRY.
I KNOW HOW BADLY YOU WANTED
A LIFE OF YOUR OWN.
NIKOLAS: AND AS LUCKY
AS THE BROTHER I WAS JUST
GETTING TO KNOW.
AND IF I WANT TO GET TO KNOW HIM
ANY BETTER, FIRST, WE HAVE
TO FIND HIM.
ANY SUGGESTIONS?
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW WHAT?
I'M GOING TO TAKE THAT PRETZEL
VENDOR AS A SIGN WE SHOULD STAY
PUT.
I'M GOING TO SET UP SHOP
AS A STREET ARTIST, AND WHO
KNOWS?
MAYBE LUCKY WILL JUST WALK BY.
NIKOLAS: YEAH, THAT'S NOT
UNLIKELY.
ELIZABETH: OR MAYBE HE'LL
FEEL US REACHING OUT TO HIM.
BUT EITHER WAY, I'M GOING
TO NEED A SUBJECT, SO ANY
VOLUNTEERS?
NIKOLAS: WELL, I'VE ALWAYS
WANTED MY PORTRAIT DONE,
ESPECIALLY BY AN ARTIST DESTINED
FOR GREAT FAME.
ELIZABETH: WELL,
THEN, SIR, TODAY YOU GET
YOUR WISH.
NIKOLAS: AH.
ELIZABETH: WE BOTH WILL.
I HOPE.

ALAN: HOW DARE YOU TREAT
GENERAL HOSPITAL LIKE IT WAS ONE
OF YOUR INVESTMENTS.
THERE ARE PEOPLE'S LIVES
AT STAKE.
STEFAN: THE MATTER IS
OBVIOUSLY OF GREAT CONCERN
TO YOU, ALAN.
PERHAPS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER
DIPPING INTO THE QUARTERMAINE
COFFERS.
ALAN: IF YOU WANT TO WITHDRAW
YOUR FUNDING AND RESIGN
FROM THE BOARD, GO RIGHT AHEAD.
I WELCOME THE HEADACHE
OF FINDING ALTERNATE FUNDING.
STEFAN: IT'S TOUCHING THE WAY
YOU FAWN OVER YOUR BENEFACTORS.
I WILL REVIEW MY ACCOUNTS,
AND I'LL BE IN TOUCH ABOUT
THE FUTURE OF ANY CASSADINE
SUPPORT.
ALAN: I'D HOLD OFF
ON YOUR APPLAUSE.
I MAY HAVE JUST LOST GENERAL
HOSPITAL ITS OPERATING BUDGET.
RAE: NO.
YOU MADE SUCH A STAND
FOR YOUR PATIENTS, AND
YOU WEREN'T SWAYED EVEN A LITTLE
BIT TO POLITICS.
YOU STOOD UP FOR WHAT
YOU BELIEVED IN, AND FOR THAT,
I THINK YOU DO DESERVE A LITTLE
APPLAUSE.
ALAN: IT IS SO NICE TO HAVE
SOMEONE WHO APPRECIATES ME,
REALLY.
OH, PARDON ME.
MY FRIEND HERE WOULD LIKE
TO HAVE A LOOK AT THE BOOKS
YOU HAVE ON THE CART,
AND IF THERE'S ANYTHING THAT
SHE WOULD LIKE, PLEASE JUST LET
HER HAVE IT.
THANK YOU.
RAE: YOU'RE A WONDERFUL MAN.
I DON'T KNOW HOW I'M GOING
TO THANK YOU.
ALAN: I JUST WISH YOU LUCK
ON WHATEVER YOU'RE LOOKING FOR.
I'LL SEE YOU LATER.
EMILY: LOOK, JUAN, IT'S NOT
LIKE I'M JUST GOING TO WALTZ UP
TO MY PARENTS AND BE,
LIKE, "HEY, DO YOU THINK I COULD
USE MY TRUST FUND TO FINANCE
JUAN'S SINGING CAREER?"
JUAN: THAT WOULD GO OVER
WELL.
EMILY: LISTEN, I TALKED
TO A BANKER.
ALL I NEED IS WRITTEN PERMISSION
FROM ONE OF THE TRUSTEES.
JUAN: OH, IS THAT IT?
EMILY: YEAH.
I HAVE IT ALL PLANNED OUT.
STEP ONE, THE STEALTH ATTACK.
JUAN: EMILY, WAIT.
IT'S JUST THAT THE TRUST FUND'S
YOURS.
EMILY: YEAH. SO?
JUAN: SO YOUR PARENTS PUT
THAT MONEY ASIDE FOR YOU,
NOT ME.
EMILY: YEAH, BUT I BELIEVE
IN YOU.
JUAN: I KNOW.
AND THAT MEANS EVERYTHING TO ME.
EMILY: SO THEN JUST LET ME DO
THIS.
I HAPPEN TO THINK I'M MAKING
A VERY GOOD INVESTMENT.
JUAN: I DON'T WANT TO PUT
YOU IN THAT POSITION.
BESIDES, I'M WORKING ON A DEMO
MYSELF, YOU KNOW.
IT MIGHT NOT BE PROFESSIONAL
OR ANYTHING, BUT WHO KNOWS?
MAYBE SOME A&R GUY WILL TAKE
PITY ON ME, GIVE ME A CHANCE.
EMILY: YEAH, BUT YOU ONLY
GET, LIKE, WHAT, 30 SECONDS
WITH SOME RECORD GUY?
JUAN: YEAH.
IF YOU'RE LUCKY, ACCORDING
TO NED.
EMILY: YEAH, EXACTLY.
SO WHY NOT MAKE IT THE BEST IT
POSSIBLY CAN BE?
BESIDES, YOU DIDN'T ASK.
I OFFERED.
JUAN: I KNOW, BUT WHAT
IF I --
EMILY: OF COURSE YOU'RE GOING
TO MAKE IT.
JUAN: IF I DID, YOU KNOW,
I'D PAY YOU BACK 10 TIMES OVER.
EMILY: RIGHT, OF COURSE,
OF COURSE.
JUAN: BUT WHAT IF,
YOU KNOW --
EMILY: NO IFS, JUAN.
YOU'RE GOING TO BE A MAJOR STAR.
ALL WE NEED IS A SIGNATURE.
JUAN: HOW?
BY USING FORCE OF WILL TO MOVE
YOUR DAD'S HAND ACROSS THE PAGE?
EMILY: ACTUALLY, I HAVE
AN IDEA.
I KNOW HOW TO GET MY GRANDFATHER
TO SIGN THOSE PAPERS
WITHOUT EVEN ASKING
ONE QUESTION.

LUCY: IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE
YOU.
YOU KNOW, I HEARD ALL ABOUT
YOUR ACCIDENT, AND I JUST -- IT
WAS HORRIBLE.
I'M SORRY.
BUT YOU LOOK GREAT.
IT'S SO NICE TO SEE YOU UP
AND AROUND.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
IT'S VERY GOOD TO SEE YOU, TOO.
LUCY: OK, ENOUGH ABOUT THAT.
THE NURSES' BALL.
IT'S TIME AGAIN, ALMOST.
CHLOE: THIS IS TRUE.
LUCY: OK, SO I'M GOING TO GET
TO SEE A LOT MORE OF
YOU BECAUSE WHAT I NEED THIS
YEAR IS I THINK MAYBE THREE
OR FOUR DESIGNS FROM YOU.
CHLOE: GREAT.
JUST GIVE ME A CALL.
LUCY: OK, GOOD.
CHLOE: OK.
LUCY: PYTHON.
THINK PYTHON.
I WANT -- OH, MY GDNESS.
THAT COLOR.
THESE TWO LOOKS ARE FANTASTIC.
THIS COLOR OF PYTHON,
YOU KNOW, MAYBE CUT SORT
OF ASYMMETRICALLY, YOU KNOW,
ON THE BIAS.
KIND OF FUNKY.
WHAT DO YOU THINK, MOTHER
QUARTERMAINE?
LILA: IT LOOKS VERY YOU,
DEAR.
LUCY: I THINK IT WOULD
LOOK ME.
CHLOE: I THINK IT WOULD BE
GREAT FUN.
LUCY: OH, GOOD.
CHLOE: I'M GOING TO LEAVE
YOU TWO ALONE.
LUCY: OH, NO, I DID IT.
I'M SORRY.
YOU -- I'M NOT MEANING TO RUN
YOU OFF HERE, YOU KNOW.
CHLOE: NO, NO, NO, IT'S FINE.
I NEED TO GO, AND I HAD
A BEAUTIFUL TIME SEEING YOU.
I'LL REMEMBER WHAT YOU SAID,
LILA.
LILA: TAKE CARE, DEAR.
TAKE CE.
CHLOE: THANK YOU.
GOOD TO SEE YOU.
LUCY: GOOD TO SEE YOU, OK.
WELL, TA.
CHLOE: BYE.
LUCY: OK.
BOY, IS SHE SENSITIVE.
SHE GOT IT, YOU KNOW?
I MUST HAVE SENT OUT A SIGNAL
OR SOMETHING, MOTHER
QUARTERMAINE.
I REALLY NEED TO TALK
TO YOU ABOUT SOMETHING
IN PRIVATE.
LILA: OH? ABOUT WHAT?
LUCY: GENERAL HOSPITAL --
OR THE WRECKING BALL THAT'S
ABOUT TO SMASH THROUGH IT.
LILA: OH, THAT -- IT'S
TERRIBLE.
LUCY: I KNOW.
LISTEN, G.H. IS FACING THE WORST
CRISIS IT HAS, I THINK, EVER.
AND, MOTHER QUARTERMAINE,
THE ENTIRE FATE OF THE HOSPITAL
IS HANGING IN BALANCE
IN YOUR HANDS.

TONY: HEY.
RAE: HEY.
TONY: HOW'S IT GOING?
RAE: WELL, I HAVEN'T FOUND
IT YET.
BUT I MUST SAY, EVERYBODY HAS
BEEN SO HELPFUL TO ME,
ESPECIALLY ALAN.
TONY: YEAH, HE'S A GOOD MAN.
RAE: YEAH, HE IS.
A VERY SORT OF AN UNSUNG HERO.
I MEAN, DON'T YOU THINK?
HE'S A REMARKABLE CHIEF
OF STAFF, AND YET HE DOESN'T
BRING ANY ATTENTION TO HIMSELF.
TONY: WELL, YOU KNOW, HE SETS
A GOOD EXAMPLE DESPITE
THE OCCASIONAL QUARTERMAINE
QUIRK.
RAE: YEAH.
THEY ARE AN ORIGINAL CREW,
AREN'T THEY?
TONY: YES, YOU CAN SAY THAT.
RAE: YOU KNOW, I THINK IT'S
ADMIRABLE, THOUGH, THAT HE CAN
WORK ALONGSIDE HIS WIFE,
YOU KNOW, AND BE TOGETHER,
ALL THE INS AND OUTS EVERY DAY,
AND STILL SUSTAIN A GOOD
MARRIAGE.
TONY: UH-HUH, ALAN
AND MONICA, IT'S KNOWN AS LOVE
IN THE TRENCHES.
RAE: YEAH, WELL,
EVERY MARRIAGE HAS ITS UPS
AND DOWNS.
IT'S JUST TOO BAD THAT THE KIDS
ARE THE ONES TO SUFFER.
THEY -- THEY HAVE TWO,
DON'T THEY?
TONY: THREE.
RAE: THREE?
TONY: EACH WITH MORE THAN
THEIR OWN SET OF PROBLEMS.
RAE: YEAH, I WALKED IN,
YOU KNOW, ON A LITTLE FAMILY
DISCUSSION THE OTHER DAY ABOUT
A SON -- A.J.?
TONY: YEAH.
RAE: MONICA -- I DON'T KNOW,
SHE SEEMED A LITTLE RUTHLESS.
BUT ALAN WAS COMPASSIONATE
AND KIND.
IS HE ALWAYS LIKE THAT?
TONY: STOP IT.
RAE: WHAT?
TONY: WHAT IS THIS SUDDEN
INTEREST IN ALAN HERE?

LILA: THIS CRISIS WOULDN'T
HAVE ANYTHING TO DO
WITH A VACANT SEAT ON
THE HOSPITAL BOARD, WOULD IT?
LUCY: UH --
MOTHER QUARTERMAINE, YOU HAVE
TO UNDERSTAND THIS.
THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT ME
AND RACHEL LOCKE.
THIS IS ABOUT THE CLASSIC
STRUGGLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL.
LILA: WHICH ROLE WOULD
YOU ASSUME, DEAR?
LUCY: YOU KNOW, OK,
MOTHER QUARTERMAINE, I ADMIT
I HAVE A FEW BLEMISHES
ON MY RECORD, BUT I DON'T THINK
ANYBODY WOULD DOUBT MY COMPLETE
DEVOTION TO GENERAL HOSPITAL.
COME ON, FOR STARTERS,
THERE'S THE NURSES' BALL.
LOOK AT EVERYTHING I DO,
ALL THE FREE TIME I GIVE
TO THE BALL.
I MEAN, THERE'S FITTINGS
AND REHEARSALS AND NAGGING ALL
THOSE PEORMERS, YOU KNOW,
TO GET IT RIGHT, AND IT'S
A HUGE, COLOSSAL UNDERTAKING.
I DON'T THINK THEY COULD DO
WITHOUT ME.
OK, ENOUGH ABOUT ME.
LET'S JUST CUT RIGHT TO RACHEL.
YOU KNOW, WE HAVE TO LOOK OUT
FOR HER.
IN FACT, I THINK SHE COULD BE
THE TORPEDO THAT COMPLETELY
SINKS GENERAL HOSPITAL.
LILA: THAT SEEMS UNLIKELY.
LUCY: OH, NO, NO,
NO, NO, NO, NO, NO,
MOTHER QUARTERMAINE.
YOU HAVE NO IDEA, REALLY.
SO I'M BEGGING YOU,
I'M IMPLORING YOU, I'M PLEADING
WITH YOU.
PLEASE BACK ME WITH EDWARD.
TELL HIM HE HAS TO BACK ME.
TELL HIM THAT I WILL DO A GOOD
JOB FOR G.H., I PROMISE.
CROSS MY HEART, I WILL, AND --
EDWARD: WELL, I THOUGHT
I FELT A FAMILIAR BUZZ IN THIS
HOUSE.
LUCY: OH!
EDDIE.
EDDIE, EDDIE, EDDIE.
IT'S SO VERY GOOD TO SEE YOU.
LOOK AT YOU.
YOU LOOK WONDERFUL.
YOU KNOW, THAT'S A VERY SEXY,
STUNNING TIE.
EDWARD: THANK YOU.
LILA SELECTED IT FOR ME.
LUCY: OH.
EDWARD: SO, TO WHAT DO WE OWE
YOUR -- YOUR CHARMING PRESENCE,
LUCY?
LUCY: OH, WELL, A LONG,
OVERDUE VISIT TO YOUR KIND,
AMAZING, INTUITIVE,
SENSITIVE, BENEVOLENT,
WONDERFUL, GORGEOUS WIFE.
AND, OH, I'M JUST SO SORRY,
EDDIE, YOU WEREN'T HERE SOONER
BECAUSE I SO ENJOY THE PLEASURE
OF YOUR COMPANY.
EDWARD: WELL, LUCY,
THE FEELING IS MUTUAL.
LUCY: OF COURSE.
OH, BUT TIME FLIES, AND I NEED
TO RUN AND PICK UP CHRISTINA,
SO, MOTHER QUARTERMAINE,
IT'S SO GOOD TO SEE YOU.
I MISS OUR VISITS, AND keep in
mind what I said, right, right?
Ok.
I MISS YOU.
SEE YOU SOON.
OK, WELL, TA, EDDIE.
EDWARD: TA.
OOH.
OH, I CAN ONLY GUESS WHAT THAT
WAS ABOUT.
SO, COME ON.
ADVISE ME AS TO WHOM I SHOULD
BACK FOR THE BOARD SEAT, HUH?
LILA: WHY SHOULD I?
YOU ALWAYS DO EXACTLY
AS YOU PLEASE ANYWAY.
IT'S ONE OF YOUR MOST ENDEARING
QUALITIES, DEAR.

JAX: HEY. BACK SO SOON?
CHLOE: YEAH.
I WAS ON MY WAY TO L&B
AND I REALIZED I LEFT MY SKETCH
ALTERATIONS HERE.
JAX: DID YOU FIND THEM?
CHLOE: YEAH, I DID.
AND, UM,
I ALSO FOUND THIS.
YOU'RE BUYING MORE E.L.Q. STOCK?
JAX: YEAH.
DO YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT?
CHLOE: WELL --
JAX: WELL, WHAT?
CHLOE: WELL, IT'S JUST --
IT'S STARTING TO LOOK LIKE
YOU'RE AFTER BIGGER GAME.
JAX: YOU'RE RIGHT.
I'M NOT JUST AFTER SOME
INCONSEQUENTIAL COMPANY.
I'M PREPARING TO TAKE
OVER E.L.Q.

ELIZABETH: HERE YOU GO.
MAN: THANKS.
ELIZABETH: MM-HMM, THANK YOU.
NIKOLAS: COULD I INTEREST
A HARD-WORKING ARTIST
IN A COFFEE BREAK?
ELIZABETH: OH, JUST WHAT
I NEED -- MORE NERVOUS ENERGY.
THANK YOU.
SO, DID YOU FIND ANYTHING?
NIKOLAS: A LEAD.
APPARENTLY, THERE'S A SINGER WHO
HANGS AROUND THAT COFFEE SHOP
ACROSS THE STREET WHO ROUGHLY
FITS LUCKY'S DESCRIPTION.
ELIZABETH: HOW ROUGHLY?
NIKOLAS: WELL, WE CAN CHECK
IT OUT TONIGHT.
ELIZABETH: OK.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
THERE'S ONE THING FOR SURE,
THOUGH.
THIS IS DEFINITELY THE PLACE
TO BE BECAUSE IF LUCKY'S HERE,
HE'S GOT TO PASS THROUGH AT SOME
POINT.
RIGHT?
NIKOLAS: YEAH, YEAH.
LISTEN, I SAW THIS MUSIC SHOP
AROUND THE CORNER.
I SHOULD PROBABLY CHECK IT OUT.
ELIZABETH: OK. OK.
NIKOLAS: OK, I'LL BE RIGHT
BACK.
ELIZABETH: LUCKY?

ELIZABETH: LUCKY --
LUCKY.
LUCKY.
LUCKY!
OH, I'M -- I'M SORRY.
I'M SORRY.
I THOUGHT YOU WERE SOMEONE ELSE.
I DIDN'T MEAN TO --
I'M SORRY.
MAN: NO PROBLEM.
NIKOLAS: HEY, HEY, YOU OK?
ELIZABETH: I SAW THAT GUY
FROM BEHIND.
I WAS SURE IT WAS LUCKY.
I --
NIKOLAS: THAT'S OK.
COME ON, COME ON.
HEY, WE'LL FIND HIM, OK?
WE JUST GOT TO KEEP AT IT.
ELIZABETH: HOW COULD
I MISTAKE SOMEONE ELSE
FOR LUCKY?
I MEAN, WHAT DOES THAT SAY?
NIKOLAS: WHEN YOU WANT
TO FIND SOMETHING BAD ENOUGH,
YOU JUST START SEEING IT
EVERYWHERE.
ELIZABETH: BUT I THOUGHT
I COULD RECOGNIZE LUCKY
ANYWHERE -- FROM BEHIND,
IN THE DARK, IN A CROWD,
BECAUSE I KNOW HIM SO WELL HERE.
BUT IF I CAN'T TELL LUCKY
FROM A STRANGER JUST A FEW
YARDS AWAY,
IF I CAN'T TRUST MY HEART,
WHAT HOPE DO I HAVE OF FINDING
HIM?

RAE: YOU KNOW WHAT?
I -- I NEED TO REALLY LEVEL
WITH YOU.
SINCE I'VE BEEN SEARCHING
FOR MY DAUGHTER, IT'S BROUGHT UP
ALL KINDS OF EMOTIONS,
AND THE CLOSER I GET,
THE MORE ANXIOUS I BECOME.
I'M JUST SO PREOCCUPIED
WITH PARENTS AND CHILDREN
AND THE DOS AND THE DON'TS.
I DON'T KNOW, I GUESS MAYBE I'M
TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW I'M
GOING TO HANDLE IT IF I EVER DO
FIND HER.
I LOST HER ONCE, TONY.
I CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE
HER AGAIN.
TONY: RAE, YOU ARE SUCH
A KIND AND LOVING WOMAN THAT
WHEN YOU DO FIND YOUR DAUGHTER,
I CAN'T IMAGINE THAT
SHE WOULDN'T WANT TO KNOW YOU.
RAE: YOU KNOW WHAT?
IF I DO FIND HER,
IT'S BECAUSE YOU HELPED ME.
NOW, LET ME RETURN THE
FAVOR, OK?
TONY: THANKS, BUT I DON'T
NEED ANYTHING.
RAE: I'M ABOUT TO PUT MY FOOT
IN MY MOUTH BECAUSE I'M GOING
TO DISAGREE WITH YOU.
YOU'RE A SURGEON, AND YOU CAN'T
OPERATE.
I THINK I KNOW WHY.
TONY: IT'S PRETTY SIMPLE.
MY HAND DOESN'T WORK.
RAE: BUT YOU SAID THERE'S
A PROCEDURE THAT MIGHT FIX IT.
TONY: YEAH.
THE OPERATIVE WORD HERE IS
"MIGHT."
RAE: OR FEAR?
TONY: YOU THINK I'M AFRAID
OF THE PROCEDURE?
RAE: NO, BUT I DO THINK THAT
YOU MIGHT BE AFRAID OF WHAT
HAPPENS AFTERWARDS.
SEE, RIGHT NOW YOU CAN HIDE
BEHIND HOPE.
BUT IF YOU GO AHEAD AND TAKE
THAT PLUNGE AND IT DOESN'T WORK,
YOUR LIFE COULD GO SPIRALI OUT
OF CONTROL, AND YOU KNOW IT.
CHLOE: WHY DIDN'T
YOU TELL ME?
JAX: BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT
TO PUT YOU IN THE AWKWARD
POSITION OF KNOWING ABOUT
THE TAKEOVER BEFORE IT HAPPENED.
CHLOE: MY POSITION IS
IRRELEVANT.
I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING
THIS AT ALL.
EDWARD'S ONLY CRIME WAS TO STEAL
A SMALL COMPANY YOU WERE
PLANNING TO BUY.
YOU THINK IT'S FAIR TO RETALIATE
BY TAKING OVER HIS FAMILY
BUSINESS?
JAX: IT'S GOT NOTHING TO DO
WITH RETALIATION OR BEING FAIR,
FOR THAT MATTER, OK?
IT'S --
I'VE ALWAYS WANTED E.L.Q., OK?
I'VE TRIED TO TAKE IT OVER
BEFORE, BUT IT DIDN'T WORK.
NOW THE COMPANY'S WEAK AS IT'S
FALTERING SO.
THIS COULDN'T BE A BETTER TIME.
CHLOE: I CANNOT BELIEVE I AM
HEARING THIS.
THESE PEOPLE ARE MY FAMILY.
NED IS YOUR FRIEND.
DOES THAT NOT MATTER TO YOU,
EVEN A LITTLE BIT?
JAX: CHLOE, CHLOE,
CHLOE, YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND
SOMETHING ABOUT ME, OK?
I DON'T LET MY PERSONAL FEELINGS
INTRUDE ON MY BUSINESS.

EMILY: HI.
ARE MY PARENTS HOME?
EDWARD: THEY'RE AT
THE HOSPITAL.
WILL I DO?
EMILY: OH.
OH, OF COURSE, GRANDFATHER.
IT'S JUST --
OH, MY PARENTS ARE PROBABLY
AT THE HOSPITAL SAVING SOMEONE'S
LIFE, AND WHEN THEY GET HOME,
A.J. PROBABLY'S DONE SOMETHING
HORRIBLE AND THEY DON'T REALLY
HAVE TIME FOR ME.
EDWARD: NOW, YOU SHOULD NEVER
THINK THAT WAY.
EMILY: NO, IT'S OK.
I KNOW THAT A.J.'S NEEDS ARE WAY
MORE IMPORTANT THAN MINE.
EDWARD: STOP SHORTCHANGING
YOURSELF, YOUNG LADY.
NOW, JUST BECAUSE YOUR PARENTS
CAN'T SEEM TO GRASP THE BASIC
RULES OF SIMPLE PARENTING DOES
NOT MEAN THAT YOUR IDEAS ARE
LESS IMPORTANT.
YOU TELL ME WHAT I CAN DO
FOR YOU.
CONSIDER IT DONE, HMM?
EMILY: WELL --
NO. FORGET IT.
EDWARD: OH, WHAT'S THAT
YOU'RE WAVING AROUND?
WHAT?
EMILY: WELL --
IT'S A PERMISSION SLIP
FOR A FIELD TRIP FOR SCHOOL.
YOU KNOW, THE PLANETARIUM,
THE ONE THAT WAS NEWLY
RENOVATED?
EDWARD: WELL, YES, OF COURSE.
WELL, YOU HAVE TO GO.
EMILY: YEAH, BUT,
SEE, THE THING IS IS THAT IT HAS
TO BE SIGNED.
IF IT'S NOT HANDED IN AND IT'S
NOT SIGNED, THEN I CAN'T
GO, AND --
EDWARD: WELL, NONSENSE.
I'LL SIGN IT.
EMILY: OH. YOU WILL?
EDWARD: WELL, OF COURSE,
AS SOON AS I'VE LOOKED IT OVER.
EMILY: OH --
UH --
PROBLEM?

EMILY: UH, YOU KNOW WHAT,
GRANDFATHER?
EDWARD: WHAT?
EMILY: I TOTALLY FORGOT
TO TELL YOU.
JASON SENT ME A POST CARD.
EDWARD: OH?
EMILY: YEAH, YEAH, I KNOW.
HE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT BEING
SOMEPLACE WARM AND MOVING ON,
YOU KNOW?
HE DIDN'T MENTION ANYTHING ABOUT
COMING HOME, WHICH,
YOU KNOW, REALLY UPSET ME
BECAUSE I MISS HIM SO MUCH.
EDWARD: NOW, THIS IS
NONSENSE.
I WILL NOT HAVE YOU VICTIMIZED
BY A DELINQUENT INGRATE LIKE
JASON.
EMILY: LISTEN, I LOVE
MY BROTHER VERY, VERY MUCH.
BUT HE'S GONE NOW.
AND NOW THAT A.J.'S DRINKING
AGAIN, I CAN'T HELP BUT FEEL
THAT MAYBE I'M GOING TO LOSE HIM
IN A SENSE, TOO.
AND I DON'T MEAN TO WHINE,
BUT IF I CAN'T GO TO MY PARENTS
FOR ANYTHING AND MY BROTHERS ARE
JUST DRIFTING AWAY --
EDWARD: OH, YOU KNOW, IT IS
SCANDALOUS THE WAY THIS FAMILY
TREATS ITS YOUNG.
WHAT A PARADE OF ROLE MODELS GO
BACK AND FORTH IN FRONT OF YOU.
YOU SHOULD BE LIVING LIFE LIKE
A NORMAL TEENAGER INSTEAD
OF BEING WORRIED ABOUT
YOUR BROTHERS' TREACHERY.
I'LL SIGN THIS THING.
THERE.
EMILY: OH!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU'VE
DONE FOR ME.
EDWARD: OH, WELL.
EMILY: OH.
YES!

TONY: YOU KNOW,
YOU JUST DON'T EXACTLY TIPTOE
AROUND SUBJECTS, DO YOU?
RAE: OH, NO.
YOU'RE NOT OFFENDED?
YOU AREN'T, ARE YOU?
TONY: NO. RAE, I APPRECIATE
YOUR SINCERITY.
IT TAKES COURAGE, AND SOMETIMES,
IT INSPIRES COURAGE BECAUSE,
THANKS TO YOU, I DID CONSULT
WITH A SURGEON.
RAE: AND?
TONY: NOT ONLY IS IT
POSSIBLE, BUT THEY CAN DO THIS
PROCEDURE ANYTIME THAT I WANT.
RAE: SO I GUESS THE
QUESTION IS --
TONY: WILL I BE ABLE TO GET
OUT OF MY OWN WAY?
RAE: YES.
TONY: YEAH.
RAE: WELL?
TONY: YOU WERE RIGHT EARLIER
BECAUSE I USE IT AS AN EXCUSE.
I HIDE BEHIND MY DISABILITY.
BUT WHAT HAPPENS IF MY HAND IS
FULLY RECOVERED?
RAE: THEN YOU'LL GO BACK
TO DOING WHAT YOU DO BEST.
TONY: WHAT IF I CAN'T,
THOUGH?
I MEAN, WHAT IF THERE'S
NO MEDICAL REASON WHY I CAN'T
FUNCTION AT THE SAME LEVEL
AS I DID BEFORE BUT I CAN'T?
RAE: HONE HOW ARE YOU GOING
TO KNOW THAT UNLESS YOU TAKE
THAT CHANCE?
TONY: "PHYSICIAN,
HEAL THYSELF."
RAE: SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
TONY: ALL RIGHT.
YOU KNOW, I'M GOING TO SCHEDULE
THE SURGERY.
I'M GOING TO DO IT.
RAE: GOOD.
TONY: OH, BY THE WAY --
RAE: WHAT?
TONY: EVERYTHING THAT
YOU CLAIM YOU OWE ME AND NOW
I OWE YOU, AND SO WE'RE ALL
EVEN, RIGHT?
RAE: OK.
TONY: EXCEPT MAYBE I'LL OWE
YOU A LITTLE BIT MORE.
RAE: YOU KNOW, I HAVE SUCH
A KNACK FOR KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT
SOMEBODY ELSE SHOULD DO.
TONY: RAE, GOOD LUCK
ON YOUR SEARCH.
RAE: YEAH.
HEY,
GOOD LUCK TO YOU, TOO.
ALAN: HI.
RAE: HEY. HI.
ALAN: ANY PROGRESS?
RAE: NO, I HAVEN'T FOUND
THE BOOK, BUT, YOU KNOW,
TONY AND I JUST HAD
A CONVERSATION ABOUT HIS HAND.
HE'S GOING TO HAVE THE
CORRECTIVE SURGERY.
ALAN: THAT IS SO GREAT.
I MEAN, THIS HOSPITAL IS
IN YOUR DEBT.
THAT MAN'S ONE OF THE MOST
TALENTED NEUROSURGEONS AROUND.
RAE: REALLY? HE IS?
ALAN: ABSOLUTELY.
I MEAN, YOU'VE NOT ONLY HELPED
HIM, YOU'VE HELPED A LOT
OF OTHER PEOPLE AS WELL.
RAE: GOOD.
THAT MAKES ME EVEN MORE PLEASED.

MONICA: I'M SORRY
TO INTERRUPT, BUT I NEED
MY HUSBAND.
LUCY: YOU WANT TO LEAVE IT
ON, OR DO YOU WANT TO GET
IT OFF?
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
OH, NO, OK.
LEAVE IT OFF.
OH, MY GOODNESS.
A.J., HI.
LONG TIME NO SEE.
A.J.: YEAH.
LUCY: OH, WAIT A MINUTE.
I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS.
YOU HAVE NEVER MET MY BEAUTIFUL
TTLE GIRL, HAVE YOU?
OK, CHRISTINA BALDWIN, THIS IS
A.J. QUARTERMAINE.
A.J.: HELLO, CHRISTINA.
WOW.
AREN'T YOU ADORABLE.
[LUCY LAUGHS]
A.J.: YOU KNOW, I HAVE
A LITTLE BOY OF MY OWN.
I NEVER GOT TO SEE HIM WHEN
HE WAS YOUR SIZE, AND
NOW HE'S GONE.
LUCY: A.J., MICHAEL?
A.J.: YEAH.
I MAY HAVE LOST HIM FOREVER,
LUCY.
LUCY: WAIT -- YOU KNOW,
I'VE BEEN TRYING NOT TO LISTEN
TO GOSSIP LATELY, BUT LAST TIME
I HEARD, YOU KNOW, THROUGH
THE GRAPEVINE, YOU AND CARLY
AND MICHAEL, YOU WERE ALL
TOGETHER.
A.J.: WE WERE
UNTIL SONNY AND CARLY STOLE HIM
FROM ME.

LUCKY: ELIZABETH.
ELIZABETH: LUCKY.
LUCKY: YOU KNOW, THIS IS
THE LONGEST WE'VE BEEN APART
FROM EACH OTHER.
ELIZABETH: I KNOW,
GIVE OR TAKE A DAY.
IT SURE FEELS LIKE THE LONGEST.
SO, HOW'S CANADA?
LUCKY: THERE'S TOO MUCH
OF IT.
I CAME THIS CLOSE TO HIJACKING
THE BUS AND FLOORING IT ALL
THE WAY HOME.
ELIZABETH: WELL, AT LEAST
YOU DIDN'T MAKE A FOOL
OF YOURSELF RACING TO THE PHONE
EVERY TIME IT RANG.
POOR GRAM, I ALMOST KNOCKED
HER OVER -- TWICE.
SHE MADE ME PROMISE NEVER TO LET
YOU LEAVE TOWN AGAIN.
LUCKY: NOT WITHOUT YOU.
ELIZABETH: SO, DID YOU MAKE
ENOUGH MONEY?
LUCKY: I GOT A GOOD START.
ELIZABETH: GOOD.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
I GOT TO GO BACK TO WORK.
MY BREAK IS OVER.
LUCKY: OK, NOT SO FAST.
I STILL HAVEN'T EVEN GIVEN
YOU THE OFFICIAL TACKY SOUVENIR
GIFT.
ELIZABETH: OH, JEEZ,
YOU BOUGHT ME SOMETHING?
LUCKY: WELL, IT'S NOTHING,
REALLY.
ELIZABETH: OH.
"GREETINGS FROM PELICAN RAPIDS."
WHERE'S THAT?
LUCKY: MANITOBA.
ELIZABETH: HMM, SOUNDS FAR.
LUCKY: I KNOW IT'S NOT MUCH.
BUT I DIDN'T WANT TO SPEND ALL
THE MONEY I WAS TRYING TO MAKE.
ELIZABETH: LUCKY, I LOVE THIS
KEY CHAIN WITH ALL MY HEART.

LUCY: A.J., I KNOW CARLY.
I MEAN, I WOULD EXPECT ANYTHING
OF HER.
I THINK I PICTURE HER DOING
A STUNT LIKE THIS, BUT NOT
SONNY.
I KNOW SONNY.
I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT HE --
A.J.: BELIEVE IT.
DON'T LET IT.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
THEY CAN'T CRUCIFY ME AND SKIP
OFF IN THE SUNSET.
LUCY: OH, YOU BETTER BE
CAREFUL.
YOU KNOW, EVERY SINGLE REVENGE,
PAYBACK KIND OF THING I DREAMED
UP, IT COST ME MORE THAN IT WAS
WORTH.
A.J.: YEAH, WELL, THERE'S NOT
MUCH LEFT FOR THEM TO TAKE,
LUCY.
LUCY: BUT, A.J.,
PUNISHING THEM IS GOING TO JUST
MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER JUST
FOR A LITT.
NOW, LISTEN, THIS IS WHAT
YOU GOT TO DO.
A.J.: OK.
LUCY: YOU GOT TO TRY
AND FOCUS ON YOU.
I MEAN, I KNOW GETTING MICHAEL
BACK IS WHAT WOULD MAKE
YOU HAPPY, BUT THINK
OF SOMETHING ELSE, ANYTHING ELSE
THAT WOULD MAKE YOU HAPPY.
A.J.: A DRINK, BUT THAT'S
JUST A BAND-AID, RIGHT?
LUCY: OF COURSE IT IS.
EVERYBODY WANTS TO SELF-DESTRUCT
EVERY NOW AND THEN, BUT PICTURE
THOSE TWO.
YOU KNOW WHAT THEY'D GET OUT
OF IT?
THEY'D WIN. YOU WOULDN'T.
SORY THE POSITIVE APPROACH.
MAYBE TAKE THAT REVENGE-PAYBACK
JUNK OUT OF YOUR HEAD JUST
FOR A LITTLE WHILE AND MAYBE
YOUR LIFE WILL GETETTER.
A.J.: WELL, I DON'T THINK
MY STORY HAS SUCH A HAPPY
ENDING, BUT THANK YOU, AND IT
WAS GREAT TO SEE YOU.
BYE, CHRISTINA.
LUCY: YOU, TOO.
A.J.: HEY.
TAMMY: HEY, A.J.
A.J.: COFFEE TO GO, PLEASE.
HOW YOU DOING, TAMMY?
TAMMY: ALL RIGHT, THANKS.
WELL, ONE HOT COFFEE TO GO.
LUCY: OH. HEY.
OH, WELL, THANK YOU, MA'AM.
GOOD TO SEE YOU.
THANKS.
EMILY: HERE YOU GO.
A.J.: NO WORRIES
LITTLE SISTER.
OK.
THE STREETS ARE SAFE.
JUAN: I DIDN'T REALIZE HE HAD
GOTTEN WORSE.
I'M SORRY.
EMILY: LOOK, I CARE ABOUT
A.J., BUT THERE'S A POINT WHERE
I GIVE UP, YOU KNOW?
I JUST CAN'T FOLLOW HIM AROUND
ANYMORE.
ANYWAY, DON'T WANT IT TO RUIN
GOOD NEWS.
JUAN: YOU DIDN'T?
EMILY: I GOT GRANDFATHER
TO SIGN A FIELD TRIP PERMISSION
SLIP.
JUAN: YOU RULE.
EMILY: NOW WE CAN GO
TO THE BANK TOMORROW AND GET
THE MONEY, THEN KICK OFF
YOUR SINGING CAREER.
JUAN: ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT
TO DO THIS?
EMILY: READ MY LIPS.

JAX: YOU KNOW, GOING AFTER
E.L.Q. NOW WHILE ITS LEADERSHIP
IS IN DISARRAY, IT'S ONLY GOOD
BUSINESS SENSE.
CHLOE: THAT'S NOT WHAT
CONCERNS ME.
I'M WORRIED ABOUT EDWARD.
E.L.Q. IS HIS LIFE.
IF YOU TAKE IT OVER, IT WILL
KILL HIM.
I MEAN, IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT?
JAX: EDWARD'S NO
INNOCENT, OK?
HE KNOWS THE PRICE OF DOING
BUSINESS.
CHLOE: YEAH, SO DID
YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.
JAX: MEANING WHAT?
CHLOE: BEING AWARE
OF THE RULES OR THE POTENTIAL
CONSEQUENCES DID NOT MAKE IT ANY
EASIER WHEN YOU LOST YOUR FAMILY
BUSINESS, FOR YOU OR
YOUR PARENTS.
I MEAN, IT WAS STILL
DEVASTATING.
JAX: CHLOE, I'M NOT
THE GOVERNMENT, OK?
WE'RE TWO PROFESSIONALS WHO KEEP
THEIR EMOTIONS OFF THE
NEGOTIATING TABLE, OK?
NOW, I ASSURE YOU, IF EDWARD HAD
THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO THE SAME
THING TO ME, HE WOULD.
AND I GUARANTEE YOU THAT HE WILL
TRY TO GET E.L.Q. BACK RIGHT
AWAY.
BUT I WON'T LET HIM.
CAN'T YOU SEE THAT THIS --
I CAN'T PASS UP THIS OPPORTUNITY
IN FEAR OF HURTING EDWARD'S
FEELINGS.
CHLOE: THEN WILL YOU DO IT
FOR ME?
CAN YOU FIND SOME OTHER
MEGACONGLOMERATE TO RAID?
JAX: YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU MORE
THAN ANYTHING, OK?
BUT THIS IS MY WORK.
I HAVE TO DO THIS.
NOW, I'LL UNDERSTAND
IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SUPPORT ME.
THAT'S FINE, BUT --
I'M ALSO GOING TO HAVE TO ASK
YOU TO KEEP QUIET ABOUT THIS,
AND YOU CAN'T SAY ANYTHING
TO EDWARD OR LILA OR ANY
OF THE QUARTERMAINES.
YOU HAVE TO PROMISE ME THAT.
CHLOE: I JUST NEED A LITTLE
TIME TO THINK, OK?
JAX: YEAH.
TAKE ALL THE TIME YOU NEED.
BUT IN THE MEANTIME,
MUM'S THE WORD, OK?
CHLOE: OK.
I PROMISE.
BUT, JAX, YOU HAVE TO KNOW THAT
I'M NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS.
JAX: I KNOW.
I KNOW.
LET'S JUST AGREE TO DISAGREE
ON THIS ONE, OK?
JAX: COME HERE.

TONY: CONGRATULATIONS.
YOU'RE RECOVERING NICELY.
MR. RUSKIN: THANKS TO YOU.
WITHOUT YOUR QUICK DIAGNOSIS,
I WOULDN'T BE LYING IN THIS
HOSPITAL BED RIGHT NOW.
TONY: NO, YOUR NEUROSURGEON
SAVED YOUR LIFE, NOT ME.
BUT I WAS GLAD I COULD HELP.
I'VE ACTUALLY MADE SOME
ARRANGEMENTS TO HAVE A LITTLE
SURGERY ON MY OWN.
MR. RUSKIN: OH?
TONY: YEAH, I'M GOING TO TRY
TO GET MY HAND REPAIRED SO I CAN
GET BACK IN THE O.R.
MR. RUSKIN: WELL, I KNOW
THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT.
AND IT'S WHERE YOU REALL
BELONG.
TONY: YOU KNOW, I'M FINE
WITH HOWEVER IT TURNS OUT.
IT'S WORTH THE RISK.
I -- I THINK I'VE KNOWN THAT
FOR A LONG TIME, BUT IT TOOK
A GOOD FRIEND TO MAKE ME SEE IT.
MR. RUSKIN: WELL, YOU'LL BE
IN MY PRAYERS.
TONY: THANK YOU, MR. RUSKIN.
I'LL CHECK BACK WITH YOU LATER.

RAE: WELL, I HAVE SOME OTHER
CARTS TO LOOK THROUGH,
SO IF YOU'LL BOTH EXCUSE ME --
ALAN: WHAT DO YOU NEED?
MONICA: WELL, FOR STARTERS,
YOU CAN TELL ME WHAT'S GOING
ON BETWEEN YOU AND RAE.
ALAN: MONICA, YOU'RE NOT
GOING TO START ON ONE OF THOSE
JEALOUS RAMPAGES AGAIN, ARE YOU?
MONICA: ME ON.
DO NOT INSULT MY INTELLIGENCE.
NOW, WE HAVE BEEN TOGETHER
FOR TOO LONG.
I KNOW ALL THE SIGNS,
AND YOU KNOW I KNOW.
ALAN: WHAT SIGNS?
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU MEAN.
MONICA: AH, GIVE ME A BREAK.
ALAN: MONICA --
MONICA: YOU ARE AS GUILTY
AS THEY GET, MISTER.
ADMIT IT.
ALAN: JUST STOP ACTING
PARANOID, OK?
MONICA: AHA, DO YOU SEE?
EVER TIME YOU CALL ME PARANOID,
I'M RIGHT.
AUDREY: WELL, IT LOOKS LIKE
THE TRUCE IS OVER, THOUGH IT
LASTED LONGER THAN USUAL THIS
TIME.
AMY: YOU KNOW, IT'S SCENES
LIKE THAT THAT MAKE ME GLAD I'M
SINGLE.
WELL, MAYBE NOT.

NIKOLAS: THAT GUY WAS A DEAD
RINGER FOR LUCKY.
FROM BEHIND, I COULD HAVE SWORN
HE WAS HIM, TOO.
ELIZABETH: I GUESS YOU WERE
RIGHT BEFORE.
I'M LOOKING SO HARD THAT I'M
SEEING HIM EVERYWHERE.
SO ARE YOU.
NIKOLAS: LUCKY AND I WERE
JUST STARTING TO GET TIGHT
BEFORE THE FIRE.
AND I FELT CHEATED,
AND I STILL DO.
I WANT MY BROTHER BACK.
ELIZABETH: YOU KNOW, ALL THIS
IS STARTING TO MAKE ME REALIZE
HOW LONG IT'S BEEN SINCE WE'VE
REALLY SEEN HIM.
WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HE'S DONE
THIS YEAR OR WHO HE'S MET,
HOW IT'S CHANGED HIM,
HOW HE FEELS ABOUT ANYTHING,
MUCH LESS ME.
YOU KNOW, I KEEP HAVING THIS
TERRIBLE THOUGHT.
WHAT IF OUR TIME TOGETHER DIDN'T
MEAN AS MUCH TO LUCKY AS IT DOES
TO ME?
MAYBE HE'S NOT EVEN ANYWHERE
IN NEW YORK OR ANYPLACE THAT WAS
SPECIAL TO US.
MAYBE HE JUST MOVED ON AND NEVER
LOOKED BACK, FORGOT ALL ABOUT
PORT CHARLES AND EVERYBODY
IN IT, INCLUDING ME.
NIKOLAS: NO, NO, NO.
LOOK, WE CAN'T DRIVE OURSELVES
CRAZY THINKING ABOUT THIS.
WE WON'T KNOW ANYTHING UNTIL
WE FIND HIM, BUT I DO KNOW
HE LOVES YOU.
I'M SURE OF IT.
I WATCHED THE TWO OF YOU.
THE WAY HE FELT ABOUT YOU,
I DON'T THINK HE COULD HAVE
HIDDEN THAT, EVEN IF HE TRIED.
BESIDES, IS THERE ANYTHING THAT
COULD MAKE YOU LOVE LUCKY LESS?
TIME APART?
DISTANCE?
ELIZABETH: NOTHING.
NIKOLAS: THEN YOU KNOW WHAT?
I CAN'T BELIEVE FOR A SECOND
THAT HIS FEELINGS FOR YOU HAVE
CHANGED.
HE LOVES YOU, ELIZABETH,
AND I KNOW THAT HE IS GOING
TO TELL YOU HOW MUCH THE MINUTE
WE FIND HIM.
ELIZABETH: THANK
YOU FOR BEING SUCH AN INCREDIBLE
FRIEND.
NIKOLAS: ANYTIME.

[TELEPHONE RINGS]
STEFAN: YES.
THEN WORK HARDER.
LUCKY SPENCER MUST BE FOUND.
I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT.
YOU CALL ME WHEN YOU HAVE
RESULTS.

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

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

LARKIN: THE SNITCH'S NAME IS
ROY DiLUCCA, AND HE'S HERE
IN PENTONVILLE.

SONNY: WHAT YOU DOING HERE?
MIKE: WISH YOU A HAPPY
BIRTHDAY.

ELIZABETH: SO WHAT DO
WE DO NOW?
NIKOLAS: KEEP LOOKING.

HELENA: RUN ALONG AND LET
MUMMY RECOR IN PEACE.

STEFAN: AS SOON AS MOMMY
TELLS ME WHERE I CAN FIND LUCKY
SPENCER.
