General Hospital Transcript Friday 5/5/00

Nikolas: Hey, Elizabeth.
Nikolas: I just checked for you at Kelly's. Any word from lucky?
Elizabeth: No, not since I saw him here.
Nikolas: All right.
Well, I've got a meeting at l&b in 15 minutes on the Eddie Maine concert.
You need a lift?
Elizabeth: Actually, I'm heading the opposite direction.
I'm going to your mom's.
I want to visit lulu.
Nikolas: I stopped by last night.
Elizabeth: Do you think she's picked up that Lucky's alive?
Nikolas: No, I don't think that she has a clue.
She seemed real happy.
Well, I couldn't sleep last night.
Nikolas: Neither could I.
I am starting to have serious fantasies about strangling Helena.
I mean, she has got to be the reason that Lucky's staying away.
He's either hiding from her or my uncle.
Elizabeth: You know, when I saw him, he didn't act like he was hiding.
He acted like I was someone vaguely familiar, like he knew me a long time ago.
Nikolas: Yeah, something else is going on, something that we don't know about.
Elizabeth: Then why hasn't he contacted us?
Nikolas: Maybe he thinks our phones are tapped or our places are under surveillance.
Which, knowing my family, that could be the truth.
Elizabeth: I just keep telling myself to trust what I feel for lucky, which is why I keep this subway token I gave him in my pocket at all times.
It symbolized our future together.
Nikolas: Yeah, and soon enough, you will have the chance to give this back to him.
Elizabeth: You promise?
Nikolas: Yes, I do.
Elizabeth: You have your meeting to get to.
Nikolas: Oh, I've got time.
Come on, I'll drop you off at Ira's.
Thanks for coming.
Shoot, I just told a colleague to call me back here.
Let's go over here.
Chloe: All right.
Tony: I'm not used to seeing you without Jax by your side.
Chloe: I didn't tell him you moved up the appointment.
I -- well, I was anticipating bad news, so I wanted to hear it on my own.
Tony: The c. A. T. Scan that you just had -- we got the results back, and the second medication isn't working.
Chloe: I -- I'm not surprised.
I've still been getting the headaches, and my dreams are more intense than ever.
Tony: How's your vision?
Chloe: Knock on wood, it's still ok.
Tony, I really want to beat this thing, and I have very little confidence in the medication at this point.
What's our next step?
Hannah: Hey, Taggert.
Yeah, I just touched base with the forensics lab in d. C. We should have the murphey results by tomorrow morning.
You know what?
Let me call you back.
Bobbie: You know what?
I'm kind of running late for something right now.
Hannah: Are you heading off to see my father?
Bobbie: Well, actually, I'm going to see Lucas' teacher for a conference at his school.
Well, I hope that's true because you should know you're being tailed.
Carly: What is that?
That's not sonny's.
Are you trying to set him up?
Sonny: Carly, I want you to go.
Larkin: Just in time.
Sugar daddy's about to get busted.
Carly: You're bluffing.
Sonny: Ok, you know what, Carly?
I don't want -- Carly: Where'd you get your badge, buddy?
Sonny: Johnny, take her home right now, please.
I don't want to mess around here.
Larkin: Be nice, or I'll have to arrest you as an accessory.
Sonny: Ok, you know what?
She's not involved, and I don't want you speaking to her again.
Larkin: You're in no position to be giving orders, Corinthos.
Sonny: On the contrary.
You wouldn't be here if you didn't need my cooperation.
She's not involved, so I want her to go.
You understand what I'm saying?
Larkin: I don't know.
Sonny: What do you mean you don't know?
Larkin: I kind of like the idea of the picture of her and the kid seeing you led away in handcuffs.
Carly: Sonny's attorney will have your badge before you even get to the police station.
Sonny: Carly, doesn't -- this doesn't concern you, ok?
And I don't want Michael here.
You understand what I'm -- Johnny's going to take you home.
Carly: Should I call Alexis?
Sonny: I'm handling it.
Larkin: Never would've picked you for the family man.
But it's kind of sweet.
One kid in the stroller, another one on the way.
Real convenient time to be sentenced to 15 years for felony possession of narcotics, which is exactly what you're looking at unless you get busy cooperating, starting now.
Hannah: No, no.
Don't turn around.
You don't want the guy to know that you've made him.
Well, you think it's the FBI ?
Hannah: Yeah, probably.
Any idea how I can get rid of him?
You know what?
We're going to make this a real public good-bye.
You go on ahead and make it look like you're leaving, and I'll distract the tail.
The second you see it's safe, you take off.
Bobbie: Got it.
Bobbie: Thank you.
Hannah: Hang on.
I need something from you as well.
Please tell my father that I love him.
I know he probably told you he doesn't want me to know where he is.
I understand it's for my own protection, but I also know my father.
And he's not going to run, he's going to fight.
So if you should happen to see him, please tell him that I'm not going to put him at risk by trying to find him, but that I love him, and if there's anything that he needs to let me know.
Bobbie: If I were to see him, I would tell him.
Hannah: Ok, I'm going to buy you some time now.
Hannah: So I'll be sure to tell Tammy, so don't worry.
I know you have to get to your nurses' conference.
I won't keep you.
Hannah: Have fun.
Ooh, I'm so sorry.
Ugh, get your hands off of me!
Hannah: What kind of a pervert are you, anyway?
Man: Get out of my way.
Hannah: Hey, is this what you do for kicks, huh?
Man: I didn't touch you.
Hannah: Are you married? does your wife know what you do for kicks?
Man: Are you crazy?
Hannah: No, you're crazy, buddy.
No, go, go.
Just get out of here, you pervert, before I call the cops.
Chloe: I am determined to beat this thing, so you say anything and I will do it.
Tony: All right.
You have two options.
You can try another medication, but at this point it's going to be an experimental drug and won't have the track record of the other two.
Or you can begin radiation therapy.
What kind of side effects am I looking at?
Tony: Some nausea, weakness, and in some cases, the treatment itself can exacerbate the existing symptoms.
The positive side of this is that the level of radiation that I will prescribe will be a low level.
Chloe: Why low?
Why not just hit this thing really hard?
Tony: Well, because the part -- the growth that we want to damage or eradicate -- it's -- think of, like, a wasp nest under the eaves of a house.
Well, you're not going to tear the roof off the house.
You don't want to tear out the beam the nest is attached to.
Just get that nest and take it out.
Chloe: Isn't that what we've been trying to do and it hasn't been working?
Tony: Chloe, in the area of the brain that it's in and your optic nerve, we're going to err on the side of caution as long as there's a shot.
I don't want, five years from now, for you to wonder if you gave up too much all of a sudden.
Chloe: What about surgery?
Tony: I'd be the first one to recommend it, but the location of your tumor -- it's too invasive.
Chloe: Ok, so you obviously are leaning toward the radiation as opposed to the medication.
Now, I don't know what you've found, but I know Jax has been talking to researchers and looking for all sorts of possibilities.
Tony: Yeah, there are a few experimental drugs out there, but we don't know the side effects.
It's -- Chloe, it's a lot.
It's a lot to think about right now.
Why don't you take today and tonight and get Jax to call me.
Or you call me if you have any questions, and then let's get together tomorrow morning and discuss it again, ok?
Tony: Is there anything else -- I mean, could I drive you home?
Chloe: No, no, Tony.
Elizabeth: Tell me, lulu -- did you really decorate those cookies all by yourself?
Well, I am so superimpressed.
You know, I can only make brownies because every time I try to make cookies they come out all burnt and crumbly.
This is nice, huh?
I have missed you so much.
Tell me, how's preschool going?
Lesley Lu: Good.
Elizabeth: It's good?
And does somebody have a boyfriend?
No, not yet?
Well, what's your favorite part of preschool?
Lesley Lu: Fingerpainting and drawing.
You like art, huh?
Well, I'll tell you what -- you are going to have to come by my studio because I've got all sorts of pictures and drawings over there.
I have paintings of birds and trees and bridges in new York city.
And I even have some pictures of lucky so that I can see him whenever I want.
Lesley Lu: I see him, too.
Elizabeth: You, too?
Lesley Lu: He comes down from heaven.
Elizabeth: Lulu, Lucky's come to visit you from heaven?
How many times?
Has he visited you a lot or a little?
Lesley Lu: Two times.
Elizabeth: Two times?
Lesley Lu: It's a secret.
Elizabeth: It's a secret.
You know what?
Lulu, will you do me a favor?
The next time you see lucky, will you give him this for me?
And will you tell m that I love him?
You can do that?
Stick it in your pocket.
Don't forget it's there, ok?
What are you two up to?
Helena oh, my dear.
What has you so distressed?
Chloe: It's none of your business.
Helena: I'm merely offering simple human compassion.
Chloe: Either you walk away right now, or I will call the police.
Helena: And tell them what, that I saw you crying and expressed sympathy?
Chloe: Ok, I am not in the mood for this.
I need you to leave me alone.
Helena: My dear, I assure you I had nothing to do with your unfortunate accident, and I must ask you not to spread these ridiculous accusations.
I might take offense.
And at would be unpleasant for everyone involved.
How pleasant, as always.
Jax: Helena, anything you have to say to Chloe I'd like to hear.
Chloe: Oh, she was just threatening me, Jax.
Helena: I came upon her.
She was crying, and I just offered my assistance.
Jax: You know, you're really starting to make a nuisance of yourself.
And that's just unacceptable.
Roy: Oh -- god, I am losing my mind.
I didn't even hear you -- hi.
Bobbie: You know, it's corny, but sometimes I miss you so much it hurts.
Roy: Thank you for coming.
Bobbie: If it weren't for sonny's men and their rules, I would be here every minute.
Roy: Well, they're just being smart.
Those rules are for your own good.
Bobbie: I know.
Turns out I was being tailed on my way to meet Francis.
Roy: You were being tailed this afternoon?
Did you tell Francis?
Bobbie: Yeah, I told him.
But I had already given the guy the slip.
Bobbie: Hannah helped.
She spotted the guy.
I didn't confirm it, but she knows I'm seeing you.
She asked me to give you a message.
She said she loves you, and she's willing to help any way she can.
Larkin: All I have to do is tell my men that I found this in one of your bags of coffee, and you're caught.
Only if one of them is willing to perjure themselves and say he saw you find it.
And since they're both together right now with Benny in there the whole time, that means there's three people you're going to have to turn.
Hey, you know what?
You go ahead, arrest me.
I'll be out before the paperwork's done.
Larkin: You think so?
Sonny: I think so.
Larkin: You're a known criminal.
The only thing that's been lacking against you is evidence.
And now we've got it.
Sonny: Oh, you know what?
Why don't we just cut to the cha.
You didn't go to all the trouble of planting drugs on my property because you're dedicated to the pursuit of justice.
You want something.
Larkin: Yes, I do.
I want you to hand over Roy DiLucca.
Sonny: I'd be glad to hand over DiLucca.
I just -- I don't know where he is.
Larkin: Don't play ignorant.
DiLucca's being relocated to another facility when his transport van is conveniently cut off by a mystery vehicle.
Van crashes, DiLucca disappears.
You expect me to believe that he pulled off an escape like that without any help?
It took organization, personnel, and money.
My guess is that DiLucca refused to rat you out.
You paid him back by effecting his escape, and now you got him holed up somewhere.
Sonny: Well, if you got it all figured out, you might as well go find him because I already told you I don't know where he is.
Larkin: You know exactly where he is.
And this is a one-time-only offer.
Sonny: You know what?
Your threats are pointless.
Time to get down to business.
I will pay you handsomely to make you go away.
Larkin: Go on.
Sonny: That's it.
I want you to disappear.
You're starting to bore me.
Larkin: I mean, I'm not saying that we couldn't come to some sort of a mutually beneficial financial arrangement, provided you show good faith by surrendering DiLucca.
Sonny: I don't know where he is.
How many times do I got to tell you that?
Larkin: Then I'll have to arrange another drop-in.
Only this time it might be at your home, where your pregnant girlfriend and her kid can watch us tear apart all his toys.
We'll go through her panty drawer.
Sonny: All right.
I will give you $500,000 cash.
Take it or leave it.
Larkin: I want DiLucca.
Sonny: You need to get your ears checked.
I don't have DiLucca.
Larkin: I'll be in touch.
Guess this was a false alarm.
Roy: You got to -- you got to tell her it's too risky.
It's too risky for Hannah to help me.
She's a federal agent.
If she's caught aiding an escaped felon, they'll nail her for obstruction of justice, which is the same risk you're running, you know.
Bobbie: So then we'll lessen the risk by keeping it just to me.
I think as long as sonny's men are in charge of bringing me here, that risk is something we can deal with.
Roy: So how long can you stay?
Bobbie: Actually, Hannah made it possible for me to have a longer visit this time.
She let the guy who was tailing me overhear that I was headed for a nurses' conference.
Roy: And a nurses' conference runs -- Bobbie: At least overnight.
This place is definitely an improvement over Pentonville.
So how long you think you have to stay here?
Roy: Well, until Larkin makes his move.
At some point he'll try to frame sonny, and then -- then we'll have the proof we need that he's corrupt, which taints all his cases, including mine and sonny's.
And in the meantime, I just have to wait.
Which is something I've had a lot of practice at, luckily.
One thing prison teaches you is how to pass time.
Bobbie: You play a lot of cards?
Roy: Yeah, it's just something to do with my hands.
In my mind, I'm free.
And I'm with you.
Bobbie: I'm with you, too.
Every second of every day.
Elizabeth: See you later.
Laura: We're being very careful not to say anything in front of lulu.
She doesn't know that Lucky's alive yet.
I heard from Luke, and he's on his way back home.
He wasn't able to pick up Lucky's trail.
Lucky is out there somewhere, and we're going to find him.
Elizabeth: Do you have a next step?
Laura: No, but I'm sure we'll get one when Luke shows up.
But he's out there, and we'll find him.
Jax: You've already been warned about approaching Chloe.
Helena: Well, I came upon her.
She was clearly upset.
I was only trying to help.
Jax: Chloe nearly died because of you.
Helena: Oh, do tell me you're not foolish enough to believe Alexis' ridiculous accusations.
Jax: You know, you have already provoked Luke Spencer and your son.
Do you really want more trouble?
Because I would love to give it to you.
Helena: Oh, I so enjoy being threatened by a powerful man.
What is it you would do to me?
Jax: Well, prison comes to mind.
Helena: There are all kinds of prisons, Mr. Jacks.
Chloe: Let's go.
Jax: You know, Helena, you're nothing without your fortune.
And as it happens, my specialty is making fortunes disappear.
Helena: Oh, is that what you're doing with E.L.Q.
Getting your feet wet?
Building your army to take after me?
Well, I've already been watching with great anticipation, but now I will even more so.
Jax: Dream your dreams, Helena.
But don't be a fool and try to think you can take on Luke Spencer, Stefan, and me at the same time.
Helena: Oh, I do wish you didn't have this hostile attitude.
Someday I hope you'll see you how you've misjudged me.
We might even become friends.
Jax: You want to prove your good intentions?
You stay away from Chloe.
Chloe: I'm more than ready.
Chloe: I just wish I could remember the moment the car hit me.
I keep reliving it in my nightmare, so I don't understand.
I just -- in all honesty, I cannot see Helena's face.
And if I could, I would tell the police and they would arrest her, but I -- and then she'd just buy an acquittal anyway.
And all it would do is make her mad, which is obviously not a good idea.
Jax: Chloe, Helena said that you were upset.
Why were you crying?
Chloe: I -- I saw Tony today.
Jax: I thought your appointment wasn't until tomorrow.
Chloe: Yeah, it was moved up.
Jax: Well, why didn't you tell me?
Chloe: Because I wanted to hear what he had to say on my own.
It's not good news, Jax.
Jax: The second medication isn't working, either?
He thinks it's time to start radiation therapy.
Jax: Oh, no.
Chloe: We would start with a very low dose.
Jax: Side effects?
Chloe: Nausea, fatigue.
My headaches will get worse.
I just -- I need a little time to be alone and not have to try to be brave and think about the options.
I wasn't ready for that yet.
Jax: Do I pressure you to be brave?
Chloe: No, no, no, no.
I pressure me.
Don't be critical, because I know you have just as tough a time leaning on someone.
I just needed to go out to the docks and think things through.
Please don't be angry or feel hurt.
Jax: Chloe, stop worrying about me, ok?
We're trying to concentrate on you.
I'm trying to do what you want.
I don't want to interfere.
I don't want to manage your illness.
Chloe: I know.
Jax: The last thing I want to be is another pressure for you to deal with, so -- Chloe: You're not -- Jax: I think I should probably stay out of the decision-making.
Chloe: No, no, no, Jax -- Jax: Whatever you want to do with the medication -- Chloe: I want your input.
You're the one who's been talking to the researchers.
What do you think about radiation therapy?
Jax: I think you should talk to a few people.
I know that radiation has always been an option, but there are alternative medicines.
And I think that we should -- I think that you should perhaps try them in tandem with the others.
Some of these are centuries old, and others are experimental.
Chloe: What about side effects?
Jax: I don't know.
We'll deal with that.
Jax: You know, a couple of these doctors have been asleep for hours, but I can still reach one on the west coast and one in Hong Kong, so -- is there anything you need?
Chloe: How about just a miracle?
How about you get some sleep until dinner, and I'll see what I can dig up.
I love you.
Chloe: I know.
That is what's getting me through this.
Jax: Try and get some rest, ok?
Carly: Leticia, I'll be right outside the door.
I'm going to call Alexis.
Sonny should have been back by now.
He could have been arrested.
Johnny: Mr. Corinthos said he'd handle it.
Carly: Well, contrary to popular opinion, Mr. Corinthos can't always handle everything.
He's not god, Johnny.
He sometimes needs help.
Jason would have called someone.
Johnny: Mr. Corinthos doesn't want you to get involved.
Then you go!
Johnny: He wants me watching you.
Sonny: What are you talking to Johnny about?
Carly: You scared me to death.
Now what happened?
Sonny: None of your business!
Thanks for taking her home.
Carly: He's fine.
He's upstairs with Leticia.
Sonny: Did you eat?
Because I'll fix you something.
Carly: What is that?
Sonny: What is what?
Carly: You're going to cook me something?
I've been worried sick about you, sonny.
The FBI Is threatening to arrest you, and you come back here and you ask me what I want to eat for dinner?
That doesn't work for me.
I'm worried about you.
You know, you got to tell me something.
Sonny: Or what, Carly?
Carly: Or you can take this idea about us getting married and you can cook that.
Roy: So -- so Lucas is covered?
He's spending the night with Tony, and tomorrow they're going to a baseball game.
Roy: So you can stay, basically, as long as sonny's men will let you.
Actually, I'm about to explain to sonny's men that I don't take orders from anybody.
[footsteps] Bobbie: Benny, if you're here because Francis told you that I'm spending the night -- Benny: No, no, no, no.
I have to convey a message.
I need to talk to you privately.
Roy: Well, actually, Bobbie is in this.
She has a right to know what's going on, so -- Benny: No.
Mr. Corinthos did not authorize -- Roy: Yes, yes, yes.
Mr. Corinthos obviously trusts her, or he wouldn't be allowing her to visit me.
So you can talk in front of her.
She's risking a lot by even being here.
Benny: Ok Larkin showed up at the warehouse yesterday.
He threatened to plant evidence against sonny, right?
Roy: So what now?
Benny: So sonny wants you to sit tight until Larkin makes his next move, ok?
Roy: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
That's -- sure.
But I need to speak with sonny.
I'll convey the message.
And while you're at it, you might let Bobbie's driver know that she's staying the night.
Benny: He knows that.
Bobbie: So tell me that was good news -- Larkin threatening sonny.
Roy: Yeah, that's what we've been waiting for.
We need Larkin to move on sonny to prove that Larkin is corrupt.
And then once we have evidence of that, we'll be able to use it to -- you know, to get me out of this mess.
Bobbie: That's what I want more than anything -- for you to be free and safe.
Roy: I want more than that, baby.
I want a life with you.
["Once upon a dream:. Plays] [knock on door] Luke: Oh, go away.
Laura: I knew you'd stop here first.
Luke: I'm sorry, darling.
I ran out of places to look.
I didn't find our boy.
He didn't call?
Well, I'm thinking now that maybe we're on the wrong track.
Laura: What do you mean?
Luke: Well, instead of us running all over the globe searching for him, maybe we should just stand still and let him find us.
Lesley Lu: Lucky!
Lucky: Hey, kiddo.
Remember, we got to be quiet.
Oh, it's so good to see you.
Lesley Lu: I got a present for you.
Lucky: I would love a present from my little sister.
Lucky: Did Elizabeth give you this?
Did she say anything?
Lesley Lu: She said she loves you.
I got here as soon as I could.
Elizabeth: I know.
Thanks for coming.
So, I went to go visit lulu, right?
Elizabeth: You are not going to believe what she told me.
Elizabeth: Lucky has visited her twice.
Nikolas: Are you certain?
And she thinks he's coming down from heaven.
It's not her imagination, I am positive.
Elizabeth: Because I just am, which completely blows what we were thinking right out of the water.
He's not staying away to protect me or himself because there is no way lucky would visit his little sister if he thought it was going to put her in any kind of danger.
Lucky is staying away from us because he wants to.
Roy: I owe Hannah big time.
Bobbie: On the way over here, I kind of wished I'd had a little more time to pack for this nurses' conference.
Roy: I like what you packed just fine.
This situation is kind of a drag, though.
I hate that we have to steal this in a borrowed house, knowing the cops could kick down the door at any time.
You deserve so much more than this, baby.
You deserve so much better.
Bobbie: Roy, there will never be anything better for me than you.
Carly: I told you Leticia's giving Michael his bath.
They can't hear us.
Sonny: I want to marry you, but I'm not going to let you use it as leverage to get me to do what you want to do.
You know the rules.
I -- we don't discuss my business.
Now, if you can't accept that, then I'm glad we figured that out up front.
Carly: I know your stupid rules.
You got to understand something, though, ok?
You're the father of my child, so you're not the only one who gets to worry, sonny.
I have a right to worry about you.
My child needs two parents.
Sonny: You do not get to know about my business.
Carly: It's not just your business.
Your business is my business.
I saw a.j.
Today, you know?
Sonny: Why am I just hearing this?
I thought you said he wasn't living there anymore.
Carly: He doesn't live there.
Sonny: Well, hey, you know what?
It's the first time I'm hearing this.
Said to me -- sonny: What?
Carly: That he was going to get custody of Michael because you're a criminal and eventually you'll get caught.
And when you do, where does that leave me?
High and dry, sonny.
How long do you think it's going to take a.j.
To get his team of lawyers to grab Michael?
So I come from hearing this, I walk into the warehouse, it's filled up with FBI agents threatening to arrest you.
Sonny: It was one, and he didn't do anything.
Carly: So, one, two, an army -- how do I know?
Sonny: Carly, I'm fine.
I'm not going anywhere.
Larkin: I've considered your offer, and I'll get out of your hair for the price you mentioned.
But I want DiLucca.
Sonny: All right, just -- Larkin: You have one week, or I guarantee you're going to prison.
Sonny: Come here.
Just sit down for a second.
Sonny: I would never ask you to marry me and then desert you.
And letting myself go to prison would mean deserting you, and I'm going to do whatever I can to ensure that doesn't happen.
You have my word.
Um -- I want to marry you, and I want to be a great father to your children.
I want to give you a great life.
Have you changed your mind?
Sonny: All right.
Well, then, look, maybe this may help it out there.
Um -- it's a symbol of my promise that I -- that I would never leave you.
>> On the next "General hospital:. --
Chloe: Promise me something.
Nikolas: That token means everything to you.
Elizabeth: How much could it possibly mean if lucky doesn't even want to see me?
Luke: If the kid is on some kind of mission, the only place he can do that is here.
Carly: The ring means that you love me, and you don't.
