General Hospital Transcript Wednesday 5/31/00
Provided by Laura
Roy: So far so good.
No sign of Larkin.
Roy: That's why it's better we hired a private plane to get us off this island.
It'll be harder to trace.
And, baby, with the evidence we got proving that Larkin's on the take, sonny and I could be in the clear by this time tomorrow.
Bobbie: That's not the plane we're taking, is it?
Roy: Uh --~ man: You guys ready?
Roy: Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, we are.
What's wrong with it?
Bobbie: Well, I I thought the plane would be bigger.
Roy: Well, it's not that small.
Besides, it's not like we have a lot of choice.
As long as I'm with you and I know it's taking us home, it'll be ok.
Man: You guys coming?
Felicia: Grandmother, this is Chloe Morgan.
Chloe, this is my grandmother, Mariah Ramirez.
Chloe: What a pleasure.
Mariah: Oh, how nice.
And thank you for staying late so that you can show Maxie some of the sketches that you have for her dress.
Chloe: Oh, are you kidding?
Compared to some of the schedules my music clients keep, this is just after lunch.
Why don't you come with me and we'll take a look at some of these sketches and see what you think.
Felicia: Go ahead.
Maxie: I already have a new dress.
Mac bought it for me for my friend's bat mitzvah.
My mother wouldn't know because she was out of town at the time.
Felicia: Well, I'm home now and there's no such thing as too many nice dresses.
Maxie: You can't bribe me, ok?
So stop trying.
I was just about to come look for you.
Dara Jensen and lt.
Taggert are on their way over to sonny's penthouse.
Is Michael all right?
Hannah: Yeah, he's fine.
They're checking into Carly's fall.
They could be about to arrest you.
Carly: Thank you for getting him to sleep.
You always do a good job with him.
Sonny: Have you eaten?
Carly: Does it matter?
Sonny: Well, you need your strength.
Carly: When do you think Michael's going to stop asking about the baby?
Sonny: I don't know.
Carly: I tried to explain it to him, you know, but he just doesn't seem to be able to understand.
Sonny: Maybe because we haven't, either.
[knock on door] sonny: Yeah.
Johnny: A. D. A. Jensen and lt. Taggert.
Sonny: All right, let them in.
Sonny: What do you want?
Dara: Mr. Corinthos, the d. A. 'S office realizes that this is a difficult time for you and ms. Benson. But the paramedics that brought you in on the night that you fell reported that you may have been pushed down the stairs at the Quartermaines'.
Taggert: Which would be assault.
What about murder?
My baby's dead.
Dara: Under new York penal law, you would have to be more than 24 weeks pregnant for homicide or manslaughter to apply. I'm sorry.
Taggert: So, ms. Benson, would you like to press charges against a.j. Quartermaine?
Carly: What kind sentence goes with an assault charge?
Taggert: Well, let's not jump ahead.
So, did a.j.
Push you down the stairs?
Sonny: Carly fell by accident.
Taggert: When I was over at the Quartermaines' later that night, Edward was riding a.j.
Pretty hard like he'd made some serious screw-up.
Sonny: I was in the other room with Edward.
By the time we got to the foyer, Carly was already falling.
Taggert: So then why don't you tell us what did happen.
Carly: It was an accident, like sonny said.
I got into an argument with a.j.
At the top of the stairs.
Lost my balance, and I fell.
Dara: What made you lose your balance?
Carly: I guess I turned, and I didn't realize that I was that close to the edge of the stair.
Dara: And you remember it clearly?
Carly: Oh, yeah.
Dara: Then we have no case for assault.
I'm sorry for your loss.
Taggert: You know, if you do hold a.j.
Responsible, the best way to punish him is with the law.
So if he should happen to have an unfortunate accident of his own, you will be looking at murder charges.
Sonny: We already told you it was an accident.
We got nothing more to add.
Dara: Sorry for the intrusion.
Ahem -- you know what?
I got to be somewhere, and I need to get there before it gets any later.
You going to be all right here?
Sonny: You know, there's that pasta in the fridge.
I'll go ahead and -- Carly: I'm all right.
I'm going to eat, I promise.
Sonny: All right.
I won't be long.
a.j.: You know, Carly can make me do a lot of things when I'm mad, but not push a pregnant woman down stairs.
But still, it's pure Carly to lie and say I did.
You know, this explains sonny's attitude the other night.
Hannah: What attitude?
a.j.: I bump into him down on the docks, I tried to apologize.
And he said he was going to let me live because I'm Michael's father.
So now I guess he's going to let the police do his dirty work, huh?
Maybe I should be grateful.
Hannah: Well, sonny doesn't count on the police for anything.
But Carly, that's different.
I mean, the way she lies, there's no telling what she might say.
Well, thanks for the heads-up.
Hannah: Hey, where are you going?
a.j.: Someplace where there's a liquor license.
If they're taking me in, I'm not going to be sober.
Hannah: A.J., I didn't give you a heads-up so you could go get wasted.
a.j.: Why did you give me the heads-up?
Felicia: Maxie, I'm not trying to bribe you.
We always buy you new dress for the nurses' ball.
Now, Chloe has spent her time here to try to find out what it is that you want.
Maxie: I don't want a new dress.
I want Mac and I want the family that we used to have.
Felicia: Maybe we'll come back at another time.
Maxie: Maybe you should let Georgie and I go back to Texas.
We were happy there.
Mariah: Maxie, we will -- we'll finish this conversation in the car.
Please apologize to Chloe for wasting her time.
Maxie: I'm sorry.
And it's not that I don't like your ideas.
The dresses you drew looked really cool.
I'll tell you what -- I'm going to keep this handy just in case you change your mind, ok?
Maxie: Thank you.
Mariah: Come along.
Thank you, Chloe.
I'll s you back at the house.
Chloe: Do you need a ride?
Felicia: No, we drove in separate cars.
Do you see what I'm up against now?
Chloe: I think maybe I understand where Maxie is coming from.
When my parents got divorced, I felt disoriented, like the bottom of my world dropped out.
And no matter what a kid says, you feel like somehow it's your fault if your parents break up.
Maxie's convinced that it's all my fault.
Was your whole life traumatized when your parents got divorced?
Chloe: I think the big argument is, which is worse?
Is it worse to grow up with angry, dysfunctional parents, or is it worse to grow up with parents who have gone their separate ways?
In the beginning, I wanted my parents to work out whatever was wrong.
But then I realized that my father had absolutely no interest in making it work, and I began to resent him.
Felicia: But I do.
I have all the interest.
Mac doesn't have any interest, but, my god, I certainly don't want the girls to turn their anger towards him.
Chloe: I don't think you can compare the two.
I was just trying to relate to how Maxie might feel.
Felicia: Well, give me something that will help.
Chloe: As much as I say I resented my father, what I really wanted from him, more than anything else, was his love because for him to leave my mother and I meant he didn't love us.
And if it was just her he didn't love, then he would have taken me with him, right?
But he didn't, and that left me angry and confused and desperate for his love.
But I couldn't show him that.
It was much easier to be angry.
The difference here is he didn't love me.
Or if he did, I was very low on the list.
You love your girls.
Felicia: How do I reach out to her?
Chloe: You just wear her down.
You keep being there until eventually she comes around.
Felicia: Well, I'm not sure Mac and I will ever get back together again.
Chloe: This is kind of out of my field of expertise, but I think you have to know what you want in order to change somebody else's mind.
Felicia: Well, it's a bit of concern, considering I still have feelings for Luke.
Hannah: I'm warning you about sonny and Carly, that they may press charges because I don't want you to get hit out of nowhere.
You could fight this.
Hannah: Yeah, somebody may have seen Carly fall down the stairs at the house -- a.j.: Hannah, we were alone, all right?
We were alone.
It would be my word against Carly's, the drunk, bitter ex-husband against the grieving mother.
Yeah, sure, there'll be lots of people on my side.
Taggert: Oh, hey, hey.
I thought that was your car I saw outside.
You mind if I check what you're drinking there?
Taggert and I just left sonny's.
He and Carly aren't pressing charges in the fall that caused her to miscarry.
a.j.: All right.
I'll see you around.
Oh -- you want to check my breath, huh?
Dara: Do you mind if I ask you what you and a.j.
Hannah: It was personal.
Taggert: U know -- ahem -- me and Dara, we just stopped by to get some coffee.
Why don't you get me some of that rocket fuel?
I want to run something by Hannah.
Taggert: Tell me you weren't giving a.j.
Hannah: I believe him when he says he didn't push Carly down the stairs.
Taggert: What'd they teach you at Quantico, huh?
When somebody like sonny loses somebody he cares about, somebody has to pay.
Now, how long do you think it'll be before a.j.
Has an accident of his own?
Sonny: Hey, lily.
It's me again.
Sonny: I've been -- I've been thinking a lot about you and our child up in heaven, not just because tonight's the anniversary, but -- I got another child up there now.
May be a little lost, in need of love, so maybe you could take care of him, tell him his daddy loves him?
I didn't mean to interrupt.
Sonny: No, that's ok.
I wish you could have known her better.
Lily always missed you.
Hey, I read -- go ahead.
Put that down.
I read you -- you opened up for Ned the other night.
Yeah, it was the greatest feeling ever.
She would have loved to be there.
Juan: I wish she could have been.
Sonny, Emily told me about Carly losing the baby.
[knock on door] Johnny: Emily Quartermaine.
Carly: Let her in, but can you come back in a couple minutes and give me an excuse to get rid of her?
Carly: I'm not in the mood to fight with you.
Emily: That's not why I'm here.
Carly: And I don't want to hear some plea for A.J., either about how sorry he is or how he didn't mean to -- Emily: I just wanted you to know how sorry I am about the baby.
Look, I know that I've been on your case a lot and I've said a lot of really mean things about you and to you, which is mostly because you kept hurting Jason.
But I would have never wished anything like this on you.
[knock on door] Johnny: Your appointment?
Did you want me to have Francis bring the car around?
Emily: Well, I see you have plans.
I just wanted to let you know that I'm sorry.
Carly: No, wait.
Look, just try to remember, this is getting us home.
Bobbie: And we'll be over land soon, right?
We'll be away from all these ocean air currents?
Roy: Uh -- Bobbie: You can lie to me, if you need to.
Roy: Yeah, sure.
In fact, I think I see some lights twinkling in the distance.
That's got to be the mainland.
You know, sweetie, I couldn't have pulled this off without your help.
And I never would have gotten Larkin's bank records unless candy showed up when she did.
Probably would have gotten shanked in that poker game.
Bobbie: I want you free.
I guess I'll go to any lengths to make that happen.
You actually thanking me for my help instead of wanting to do everything alone?
Roy: Doing things alone is overrated.
Bobbie: Why don't I find out when we're landing.
Roy: Ok, I'll let you do that.
Bobbie: Hey, mike?
Any idea when we'll stop to -- Roy?
Larkin: You two won't be around for a refueling.
You're getting off here.
Larkin: Move to the back and open the door.
Roy: Oh, Larkin, come on.
You know there's no way we're jumping out of this airplane.
You'll have to shoot us first.
Larkin: No problem.
Roy: No, listen, listen -- Bobbie: Whoa!
Roy: You ok?
Roy: Take your shoes off.
Take your shoes off.
Roy: Just take them off.
Bobbie: What are you doing, Roy?
Roy: Put your feet through these loops.
What am I doing?
Roy: Right here, right here.
Bobbie: What is that?
What -- Roy: That's a parachute.
Bobbie: I don't need that.
Roy: Yes, you do.
Bobbie: No, I don't.
Roy: Yes, you do.
Bobbie: I don't need it.
What do I need -- Roy: Do what I tell you.
Give me your arms.
Put them through these big loops.
Put them through.
You've got to hurry.
Hurry and do what?
Roy: We're going to jump out of this plane.
No, no, no.
Roy: Yes, we are.
Bobbie: Roy, I am not jumping out of this plane.
Roy: Yes, you are, baby.
We both are.
Bobbie: No, I'm not.
Roy: Yes, we are.
Bobbie: I don't know how.
Roy: It's ok.
Listen to me.
Be still, be still.
Just arch your back and count to 10.
Pull the big metal ring.
That's your main chute.
Roy: Yes, it is.
Bobbie: I can't.
There is no plan b.
Bobbie: Where's your chute?
Roy: I'm going to use yours.
Bobbie: No, no, no!
Roy: Come on, come on!
Bobbie: I can't, I can't!
Roy: We don't have a choice!
Come on, come on, come on!
Bobbie: Oh, god.
Roy: Oh, oh.
Roy: Come here, come here, come here!
Bobbie: No, no.
Roy: Come on, come on!
Don't look down!
Bobbie: I can't!
Roy: Look at me, look at me, look at me.
On the count of three.
One, two, three.
Taggert: Evening, sir.
Mac: Hey, Taggert.
Taggert: Is she there?
Were you able to speak with sonny and Carly?
They're both claiming her fall was an accident.
They don't want to press charges.
But I did tell sonny if something were to happen to A.J., we're coming to him first.
Mac: Not that he'll listen.
It's all we can do.
Good, you got my message.
Mariah: Hello, darling.
Yes, we did.
I'm just dropping them off.
Mac: Oh, no, no.
Please, join us.
Mariah: I'd love to, but I've got to make some business calls to Texas.
So have a good time and behave yourself.
I'll see you later.
Boy, have I missed you guys.
Maxie: We missed you more.
Georgie: Yeah, we missed you more can we live with you again?
Mac: Come on.
Chloe: How does Luke feel?
Felicia: I saw him in the park the other day, and he made it very clear that he wants me to choose.
Chloe: Between him and Mac.
Felicia: Something like that.
Chloe: And how are you feeling?
Felicia: I'll always love Mac.
But obviously there's something missing if I have feelings for Luke.
Chloe: What about Luke and his wife?
Are they officially divorced?
Felicia: They're in the process.
I don't know what I'm doing.
I don't know how I got to this place.
Luke and I were friends, and then suddenly this great big undertow came along and just pulled me away from everything I knew, and I didn't do anything to stop it.
So now that I've done all this damage to Mac and the girls and even Luke -- Chloe: What do you mean?
Felicia: Sometimes -- more than once -- when we kiss, I've always wanted it to go further than that.
And then I get this surge of guilt, and I think about my children, and I pull back.
And he's getting pretty tired that.
Chloe: And that's why he wants you to choose.
Felicia: I won't lose my girls' love.
And I don't want to scar them for the rest of their life.
Chloe: Will you keep in mind what I said?
If your girls are anything like me when I was little, what they're really, really afraid of is losing your love, and you just prove them wrong.
You show them that you do love them and that you are there for them, you're not going anywhere.
And eventually, they're not going to keep pushing you away.
Felicia: Thank you.
Thanks for trying with Maxie, too.
I appreciate it a lot.
Juan: I'm sorry the baby didn't get to know you.
You would have been a great father.
Sonny: I'm glad the singing's working out for you.
You're a talented boy.
Anytime you work hard and you're dedicated, it'll happen.
Um -- I hope everything good in life comes to you.
Sonny: All right.
I'll let you do what you got to do.
Carly: That's ok.
Johnny, why don't you give us a minute.
I asked Johnny to stick his head in and give me an excuse to get rid of you.
I thought you were going to yell at me again.
Emily: Yeah, I guess I do that.
Carly: And like I said, I'm not in the mood for that today.
But I know that you give me a hard time mostly because you care about Michael.
Unlike the rest of your family, he's not a bargaining chip to you.
You know, my son is not just the heir to the throne or whatever.
And you're not very nice to me, and sometimes that's ok.
Sometimes it's not.
But I know that you really love Michael and you look out for him.
Emily: Well, Carly, maybe we, for Michael's sake, should try harder to be nicer to each other.
Carly: For Michael's sake.
Johnny: Mike Corbin.
Mike: I -- I need to see sonny.
Carly: He's not here.
Mike: Johnny mentioned that.
Emily: Well, you know what?
I need to go.
But would you tell sonny that I stopped by?
Um -- you know, if you want to come by and see Michael or anything, you know, sometime?
Emily: Yeah, that'd be really great, thanks.
Carly: You just call.
I'm really sorry.
I know this is hard for you, too.
Mike: Thank you.
Carly: I don't know when sonny will be back.
Mike: How's he doing?
Carly: We're both doing the best that we can to help each other through this.
Mike: But today, how is he doing?
Carly: About the same as yesterday, mike.
"How are you, Carly?
How are you doing?
:. Mike: You have no idea what today is, do you?
Carly: Three days since my baby died.
Mike: It's also the anniversary of the death of his wife and his first child.
And now he has another loss to remember, thanks to you.
Mike: That child meant everything to sonny.
Now, I -- I stood here not t weeks ago, and I warned you to be careful.
But you wouldn't listen.
You had to go ahead and provoke a.j.
Carly: You weren't there.
You don't know what happened.
Mike: I didn't have to be there, Carly.
I saw you at the grill.
I know how you are.
You got in his face, and you started goading him without any damn thought to the life inside of you!
You didn't care what you were risking, whose life it was your job to protect -- Carly: That's not true.
Mike: What your reckless, total inability to care for your own baby would cost sonny.
Carly: That's not true.
Mike: You don't care about anybody in the world but yourself.
Carly: I love my baby, mike!
I loved my baby.
I didn't want to hurt him.
I would never hurt my child.
I didn't -- I didn't want to fall.
I didn't -- didn't want to fall.
Sonny: What the hell did you do to her?
Where are you?
Roy: I think I might have come off a little too soon.
Are you ok?
We're both alive.
That's all that matters.
Roy: Yeah, yeah.
Yeah, we're good.
We did it.
We jumped out of a plane.
Roy: With one parachute.
Bobbie: Don't ever do that to me again.
Roy: Oh, yeah.
Oh, baby, I know.
Bobbie: Gosh, I was so scared.
Roy: I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
I think Larkin must have paid better than we did, you know?
That damn worm of a pilot.
Bobbie: You have any idea where we are?
Roy: Well, the good news is it's not the ocean.
I can smell it.
Roy: My guess would be Florida.
Although it could be Georgia, I suppose.
Either way, not quite back to port Charles yet.
Ned: Why are you still here?
Chloe: I had a meeting.
How did your meetings go in new York?
Especially if I want to do the Eddie Maine thing again.
Oh, speaking of, what was up with you almost being a no-show at the concert the other night?
Ned: The sound guy convinced me that there was a problem in the basement with this phony story.
And then before I knew it, he locked me in the closet.
Chloe: Was he insane?
I tend to think he was well paid -- by grandfather.
Chloe: That's impossible.
Ned: Well, the guy disappeared, so I can't prove it.
But if the concert had been a bust, so would l&b, which would leave me crawling back to E.L.Q.
At least that's how grandfather would see it.
Chloe: Have you confronted him?
Do you know he did this?
Ned: He'd only deny it.
I know how he operates.
But since it didn't work, he only convinced me that I will never, ever go back to E.L.Q.
, no matter what Jax does to him.
I'm over it.
But I have to admit I am curious because Jax was tasting victory with this board meeting breathing down grandfather's neck.
Do you know why he postponed it?
Chloe: I can only imagine it's some sort of maneuver.
I mean, as far as I can tell, he's not backing off.
There's one thing I'm learning about Jax -- he plays to win no matter what.
Ned: You realize, of course, that I still don't think he's good enough for you.
Chloe: Oh, is that right?
Who would be?
Ned: Let me think.
Your devoted ex-husband.
Why don't I take you out to dinner.
Ned: Thai food.
Thought you'd never ask.
Ned: Let's go.
Chloe: Race you.
Mac: Here you go.
You know, you girls belong with your mom.
Maxie: Why can't you live with us but in a different bedroom than mom?
We would just fight.
Maxie: Isn't it unfair that you're the one living in a hotel when it's your house?
Mac: Yeah, but you girls need it more than I do.
Besides, I'm just a phone call away.
Now, you know that, right?
Hey, why don't we make this dinner a once-a-week thing -- until you girls get too busy for me.
So, how was school today?
Georgie: Tony Lopez brought his pet python for show-and-tell, and we watched it eat a mouse.
Mac: You had a python at school?
Georgie: Its name was Rudy, and all the mouses' names were Hillary.
Mac: Whose idea was that?
Georgie: Tony's dad.
Mac: Tony's dad?
Help your sister.
Felicia: I was about to bring home your favorite takeout.
Maxie: Mac asked us to eat out with him.
Mac: Mariah said you didn't have any plans.
Felicia: Oh, this is sort of last-minute.
Did you finish your homework?
Georgie: I didn't have any.
Felicia: Oh, you didn't?
Well, I'll see you back at home.
Mac: Felicia, since you're already here, you might as well join us.
Mac: Come on.
Do you want to sit on my lap?
We can have the takeout right here.
And apple pie, too?
Mac: Unfortunately, I called ahead, and Tammy said she was out.
Felicia: That may be because I called ahead, too, and she said that she was going to save the last apple pie for me to take home.
Georgie: I touched a python today.
Maxie: Don't tell this.
We're about to eat.
Mac: Tell your mom the snake's name.
Maxie: Don't encourage her.
This is gross.
Mac: And what were the mice's names?
Mac: Oh, and what did Rudy do with one of the mice?
Georgie: Ate it.
Maxie: Gosh, I told you not to.
Mac: Not going to have Rudy --
Hey, I tried calling you.
I was -- I was at my mother's grave.
Sonny was there.
Emily: I went by sonny's penthouse.
Carly was there.
I ended up saying some nice things to her.
Juan: How did that go?
Emily: It went ok.
She's really hurting.
Juan: Yeah, sonny, too.
Emily: You know, it's so sad about their baby.
No matter what sonny and Carly are like, I know they would have loved their child.
Carly: I didn't do anything.
I would never hurt my baby.
Sonny: Carly, it's ok.
I'll take care of this.
Carly: It was a.j.
You don't understand, mike.
He was drunk.
Sonny: Carly, listen -- Carly: He grabbed me, and I tried to get away from him, you know, and I fell.
Sonny: Mike -- Carly: You understand?
Sonny: Did you put this in her head, mike?
Mike: Look, you told me that she fought with A.J., so I presumed that she provoked him.
Go, get out of here, mike.
Mike: All right.
Sonny: You've done enough damage.
Mike: All right.
Sonny: Come on, sit down.
Come over here, sit down.
Sonny: I don't know what went down, but I'll tell you what -- he was out of line saying that to you.
Carly: Is that what you think?
You think it's my fault the baby's gone?
[telephone rings] sonny: Yeah?
Larkin: We need to have a little discussion about the not-so-dead Roy DiLucca and your girlfriend's mom.
Roy: Georgia -- Georgia has oranges.
Bobbie: It's Florida.
It's definite, Florida because I recognize the humidity.
Roy: No, I think -- yeah, you're right.
It's probably Florida.
You hear that low drone?
Roy: That an interstate.
Tomorrow when it's light, we'll mosey on over there and see if we can't hitch ourselves a ride.
Bobbie: Do you still have the evidence against Larkin?
Roy: Yeah, it's right here.
Bobbie: I never thought I would jump out of a plane, I mean, unless it was on fire or something.
I guess this proves I would do anything for you.
Roy: I guess it does.
It's almost over, baby.
Bobbie: I can't believe you jumped out of a plane without a parachute on.
Roy: Think of something else.
Larkin: Either you deliver DiLucca to me, or I will see that you spend the rest of your life inside a federal prison.
Sonny: You listen to me.
You're in no position to make threats.
If you're smart, you'll disappear.
Otherwise, I will take whatever I got on you straight to the FBI You got that, tough guy?
Larkin: Like anyone's going to believe you.
Carly: Is everything ok?
Sonny: Yeah, fine.
You look exhausted.
You should get to bed.
Carly: Sonny, where did you go today?
Sonny: Oh, I -- I went to lily's grave.
Carly: I'm sorry.
I made the day worse for you, huh?
Sonny: No, no.
No, you didn't do that.
Go get some sleep.
>> On the next "General hospital:. --
Ned: Hi, Lois.
Jax: It's over.
Edward: Excuse me?
Helena: You must always protect your queen.
Lucky: I understand.
Helena: I thought you would.
Laura: What has she done to my baby?
Stefan: I'm very close to finding out, Laura.
