SONNY: SO, WHERE ARE THEY?
ALL RIGHT, I'LL LET YOU KNOW
WHEN AND WHERE I WANT THEM
PLACED, OK?
UM --
NO, NO.
TELL THE GUYS THEY DID GOOD
TONIGHT.
YEAH.
IT'S GOING TO BE FINE.
IT'S GOING TO BE FINE.
BUT I GOT TO GO.
ALL RIGHT.
CARLY: YOU READY?
SONNY: WHAT IS IT YOU WANT
TO DO?
CARLY: YOU WERE RIGHT ABOUT
THE NURSERY.
IT CAN'T STAY LIKE THAT, SO
I STARTED TAKING DOWN
THE WALLPAPER.
BUT THE BACKING IS REALLY
STUBBORN, AND I NEED YOU TO HELP
ME.
SONNY: OK, FIRST THING
IN THE MORNING.
CARLY: NO, I WANT TO DO IT
NOW.
I CAN'T SLEEP.
I KEEP THINKING ABOUT THAT ROOM
DOWN THE HALL.
I GO IN THERE.
HE SHOULD BE THERE.
BUT HE'S NOT.
IT'S EMPTY.
SO WE HAVE TO --
IT'S GOT TO CHANGE.
THE WALLPAPER MAKES IT
A NURSERY, AND IT'S NOT
A NURSERY.
IT'S JUST A ROOM.
SO I WANT IT TO BE JUST A ROOM
AGAIN.
OK?
SONNY: OK.

STEFAN: CHLOE --
["SLEEPING BEAUTY" THEME PLAYS]
STEFAN: HELP ME.
YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN.
HELP ME.
MAC: ALL RIGHT, THIS WARRANT
IS FOR THE ENTIRE CLUB.
NOW, WE'RE LOOKING FOR EVIDENCE
THAT TIES SPENCER TO CASSADINE'S
DISAPPEARANCE.
WE'RE IN THE FIRST 24 HOURS
OF THIS, SO IT'S OUR BEST CHANCE
OF SOLVING IT.
NO MISTAKES, NO OVERSIGHTS.
GET MOVING.
SANDOVAL, WHERE'S TAGGERT?
SANDOVAL: DISPATCH PAGED HIM.
MAC: WELL, PAGE HIM AGAIN.
OFFICER: COMMISSIONER,
WE'VE GOT A WEAPON.
MAC: BAG AND TAG IT.
IF CASSADINE'S BEEN FOUND SHOT,
WE'LL TRY FOR A MATCH.
SANDOVAL: SAFE'S LOCKED.
WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DRILL IT.
MAC: GET SOMEONE STARTED
ON IT RIGHT NOW.
TAGGERT: DISPATCH SAID WE HAD
A POSSIBLE HOMICIDE?
MAC: YOU WERE PAGED OVER
AN HOUR AGO.
WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU?
TAGGERT: I GOT HERE AS SOON
AS I COULD, SIR.
MAC: THAT'S UNACCEPTABLE.
STEFAN CASSADINE DISAPPEARED
NIGHT, AND LUKE SPENCER IS
THE PRIME SUSPECT.
NOW, WE'VE GOT A WARRANT
AND A WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY,
AND YOU'RE WASTING BOTH,
TAGGERT.
TAGGERT: IF THE VICTIM'S ONLY
BEEN MISSING 24 HOURS --
MAC: SPENCER'S BEEN
THREATENING TO KILL CASSADINE
FOR YEARS.
HE'S FINALLY GONE AND DONE IT.
YOU UNDERSTAND?
HE'S GOING DOWN.
I'M NOT GOING TO BLOW THIS CASE
BECAUSE MY LEAD DETECTIVE CAN'T
BE BOTHERED TO DO HIS JOB.
TAGGERT: SANDOVAL,
TAKE THE FORENSICS TEAM AND GO
START SEARCHING THE CLUB,
PLEASE.
MAC: YOU'RE GIVING ORDERS
NOW?
TAGGERT: I NEED A MOMENT,
SIR.
MAC: GO ON, SEARCH THE CLUB.
IF THIS IS YOUR EXPLANATION
FOR WHY YOU'RE LATE, IT BETTER
BE GOOD.
TAGGERT: I DON'T HAVE
AN EXPLANATION.
NOW, YOU CAN SUSPEND ME OR FIRE
ME, I GUESS.
YOU ARE THE COMMISSIONER
AND MY BOSS, SIR.
BUT AS LONG AS I AM A COP,
I AM GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT
YOU ALREADY KNOW.
THIS IS WRONG, MAC.
YOU'RE NOT RUNNING A MURDER
INVESTIGATION.
YOU'RE LOOKING FOR AN
OPPORTUNITY TO GET BACK AT LUKE
SPENCER.

MAC: JUDGE CURTIS DISAGREES
WITH YOU, TAGGERT.
HE GAVE ME A WARRANT TO SEARCH
THIS ENTIRE CLUB.
TAGGERT: THAT'S BECAUSE
HE RESPECTS YOU, SIR.
YOU HAVE INTEGRITY.
YOU'VE NEVER MISUSED
YOUR POSITION UNTIL TONIGHT.
MAC: YOU FEEL QUALIFIED
TO MAKE THAT CALL?
TAGGERT: I KNOW WHAT IT'S
LIKE TO CROSS THE LINE, SIR.
I HATED A MAN ONCE SO MUCH
I USED MY BADGE AS A WEAPON.
I VIOLATED HIS RIGHTS,
I ARRESTED HIM WITHOUT PROOF,
I HARASSED HIM --
UNTIL YOU PULLED ME IN.
NOW, I'M JUST LOOKING TO RETURN
THAT FAVOR.
MAC: SPENCER THREATENED
TO KILL CASSADINE THIS AFTERNOON
IN MY OFFICE.
TAGGERT: LOOK, SIR, DON'T ASK
ME TO DEFEND LUKE SPENCER, OK?
THE GUY'S A PAIN IN THE BUTT.
HE HAS NO RESPECT FOR THE LAW
AND, YES, HE HAS WRONGED YOU.
THERE'S NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT.
BUT STEFAN CASSADINE HASN'T EVEN
BEEN MISSING 12 HOURS, SIR.
HE COULD SHOW UP ALIVE AT ANY
TIME.
AND IT'LL MAKE THIS WHOLE THING
LOOK LIKE WHAT IT IS --
A PERSONAL VENDETTA.
MAC: WHAT IF YOU'RE WRONG?
WHAT IF CASSADINE IS DEAD?
TAGGERT: THEN I'D START
BY QUESTIONING THE MOTHER.
MAC: WELL, SHE'S HATED HIM
FOR YEARS.
WHY WOULD SHE KILL HIM NOW?
TAGGERT: WHY WOULD LUKE
SPENCER, SIR?
HIS BOY'S HOME.
HE'S ALIVE.
LUCKY SPENCER -- HE SWORE THAT
CASSADINE HAD NOTHING TO DO
WITH THE KIDNAPPING.
MAC: YEAH, BUT HE DOESN'T
BELIEVE HIM.
TAGGERT: YOU'RE REACHING.
MAC: I'VE GOT A WARRANT
TO SEARCH THIS PLACE.
I EXPECT THAT IT'S CARRIED OUT.
BUT YOU'RE RIGHT, LIEUTENANT.
I DO HAVE A BIAS AGAINST SPENCER
THAT COULD JEOPARDIZE THIS CASE.
SO, YOU KNOW WHAT?
I'M PUTTING YOU IN CHARGE.
I EXPECT YOU TO GO OVER THIS
WHOLE CLUB WITH A FINE-TOOTH
COMB.
IF YOU FIND SOMETHING, WE PURSUE
IT.
IF NOT, SPENCER WALKS AWAY.
TAGGERT: I'LL GIVE IT MY FULL
ATTENTION, SIR.
MAC: START WITH THE BAR AREA.
TAGGERT --
THANKS FOR REINING ME IN.
BUT IF YOU EVER GIVE AN ORDER
TO ONE OF MY PEOPLE
IN MY PRESENCE AGAIN, I WILL
TAKE YOUR GUN AND YOUR BADGE
ON THE SPOT.
ARE WE CLEAR ON THAT?
TAGGERT: ABSOLUTELY, SIR.
MAC: KEVIN?
YEAH, IT'S MAC.
I KNOW IT'S LATE AND I KNOW
YOU GOT BETTER THINGS TO DO,
BUT, LOOK, IS THERE A CHANCE
YOU COULD COME BY AND SEE ME?
LOOK, I'M AT A CRIME SCENE RIGHT
NOW.
MEET ME AT MY HOUSE.
GREAT. THANKS.

["SLEEPING BEAUTY" THEME PLAYS]
CHLOE: I WANT YOU OUT
OF HERE.
STEFAN: NO.
NO ONE ELSE CAN HELP ME.
CHLOE: GET AWAY FROM ME.
STEFAN: YOU, CHLOE.
HELP ME!
CHLOE: NO!
STEFAN: Help me.
CHLOE: NO.
STEFAN: HELP ME!
CHLOE: NO!
STEFAN: HELP!
CHLOE: NO!
STEFAN: HELP ME!
CHLOE: NO. No.
NO!
NO!
NED: CHLOE?
CHLOE: NO! NO!
NED: IT'S NED.
OPEN THE DOOR.
CHLOE: NO!
[BANGING ON DOOR]
NED: CHLOE!
CHLOE: I'M COMING.
NED: ARE YOU OK?
CHLOE: NED -- YEAH.
NED, I'M COMING.
NED: WHAT THE HELL IS GOING
ON?
IS SOMEONE THREATENING YOU?
CHLOE: NO, NO, NO.
I WAS HAVING A DREAM.
STEFAN CASSADINE WAS STANDING
RIGHT THERE, AND HE WAS DYING,
AND HE WAS ASKING ME TO HELP
HIM.
NED: WELL, I HOPE YOU SAID
NO.
CHLOE: IT'S NOT FUNNY.
NED: NO, I CAN SEE THAT.
IS YOUR HEAD HURTING?
CHLOE: YEAH, IT REALLY HURTS.
NED: ALL RIGHT.
DIDN'T TONY GIVE YOU SOMETHING
FOR THAT PAIN?
CHLOE: YEAH, I DON'T WANT
TO TAKE IT.
I THINK IT MAKES THE DREAMS
WORSE.
NED: OK, TELL ME THE WHOLE
THING.
SO, STEFAN WAS DYING.
HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT?
CHLOE: I SAW IT.
I THINK HE WAS POISONED.
NED: HOW?
HERE?
CHLOE: NO, IT WAS SOMEWHERE
ELSE.
IT WAS ANOTHER ROOM.
IT WASN'T -- IT WASN'T THIS
ROOM.
DID I CALL YOU?
IS THAT WHY -- IS THAT HOW
YOU KNEW TO COME OVER HERE?
NED: YEAH, ABOUT 10 MINUTES
AGO.
CHLOE: OK.
NED: I GOT HERE AS SOON
AS I COULD.
CHLOE: ALL RIGHT.
NED: SO, WHAT PROMPTED THAT?
I MEAN, TELL ME --
OK, TELL ME THE LAST THING
YOU REMEMBER.
CHLOE: I HAD A NIGHTMARE,
AND I WROTE IT DOWN
IN MY JOURNAL.
I MEAN, I -- GOD, I HOPE I DID
BECAUSE OTHERWISE I'M REALLY
LOSING MY MIND.
WHAT IS THE LAST ENTRY?
NED: TONIGHT?
YOU BELIEVE THIS?
YOU REALLY THINK YOU SAW STEFAN
CASSADINE DIE?

CARLY: DO YOU KNOW HOW
TO TAKE DOWN WALLPAPER?
SONNY: I CAN FIGURE IT OUT.
CARLY: YOU CAN START THERE.
CARLY: YOU KNOW WHAT?
I THOUGHT I'D SEND JOHNNY
TOMORROW TO GET SOME SAMPLE
BOOKS.
YOU KNOW, MAYBE WE COULD PANEL
THE WALLS INSTEAD OF DOING
WALLPAPER, AND WE COULD TURN
THIS INTO AN ENTERTAINMENT
CENTER, YOU KNOW, WITH,
LIKE, A TV AND A SOUND SYSTEM
AND --
WHY DID I GET THESE DAMN BEARS?
WHY DID I GET THESE STUPID
BEARS?
SONNY: CARLY --
CARLY: WHY WON'T IT COME OFF?
SONNY: STOP. STOP.
CARLY: COME ON.
SONNY: CARLY --
CARLY: LEAVE ME ALONE!
SONNY: LISTEN TO ME.
STOP.

CARLY: SORRY.
I'M OK.
THANKS.
SONNY: CARLY,
YOU'RE HURTING YOURSELF.
CARLY: WHY DIDN'T YOU WAIT
A LITTLE WHILE, YOU KNOW?
WHY DIDN'T YOU WAIT?
THE BABY AND I, WE WOULD HAVE
MADE IT.
WE WOULD HAVE BEEN OK.
SONNY: THE DOCTOR SAID IT WAS
THE ONLY WAY TO SAVE YOU.
WHEN HE GAVE ME PERMISSION,
I KNEW THAT IT WASN'T
WHAT YOU WOULD HAVE CHOSEN,
BUT I WASN'T GOING TO
LET YOU DIE.
I SAID GOOD-BYE TO HIM.
I TOLD HIM, YOU KNOW,
THAT YOU LOVED HIM.
I THINK HE HEARD ME.
I HAVE TO BELIEVE HE DID.
CARLY: WERE YOU SCARED?
SONNY: I THOUGHT HE COULD
MAKE IT --
I MEAN, IF I, YOU KNOW,
PRAYED HARD ENOUGH, SPENT ENOUGH
MONEY, GAVE YOU ENOUGH TIME.
I COULDN'T.
I'M SORRY.
CARLY: HE WAS GONE
THE MINUTE I FELL.
I KNOW THAT.
I KNOW.
IT'S JUST THAT SOMETIMES
I GET TIRED OF KNOWING SO I TRY
TO THINK OF SOMETHING ELSE,
YOU KNOW, SOME OTHER WAY THAT IT
COULD HAVE BEEN.
BUT WHAT HAPPENED HAPPENED,
RIGHT?
JASON EVER SAY THAT TO YOU?
SONNY: HE COULD LIVE THROUGH
SOMETHING AND NOT LOOK BACK.
I NEVER MANAGED IT.
CARLY: ME, NEITHER.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT THE WORST PART
IS?
THE WORST PART'S NOT HAVING
OUR BABY.
BUT BESIDES THAT,
THE WORST THING IS THAT NOTHING
HELPS.
YOU KNOW?
DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU HOLD
SOMETHING THAT WAS HIS
OR YOU GIVE EVERYTHING AWAY.
EITHER WAY, YOU JUST --
I'M JUST EMPTY.
I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S THE SAME
FOR YOU OR NOT.
DID IT HELP YOU WHEN YOU
SMASHED HIS CRADLE?

NED: LET'S START
AT THE BEGINNING.
CHLOE: I HAVE HAD SOME VIVID
DREAMS LATELY, BUT THIS WAS
LIKE --
IT WAS LIKE I WAS STANDING
IN THE ROOM WATCHING.
STEFAN WAS TAKING A DRINK,
AND HE HAD THIS LOOK ON HIS FACE
LIKE HE WAS TAKING A DARE,
LIKE HE KNEW WHAT WAS ABOUTAPPEN TO HIM.
AND THEN SUDDENLY HE JUST
DROPPED THE GLASS AND HE FELL
FORWARD ON HIS KNEES.
AND HE HAD THIS LOOK
ON HIS FACE.
AND HE WAS KIND OF REACHING OUT.
AND HE KIND OF GRABBED THE MUSIC
BOX.
AND THEN HE FELL AND IT FELL
TO THE FLOOR WITH HIM.
AND HE WAS JUST LYING
ON THE FLOOR, PERFECTLY STILL.
NED, IT WAS AS REAL TO ME
AS YOU SITTING THERE LISTENING
TO ME RIGHT NOW.
NED: AND THEN YOU WOKE UP.
CHLOE: YES.
AND THAT'S WHEN ALEXIS CAME
OVER.
THIS TIME SHE HAD THE POPCORN.
AND I DIDN'T TELL HER ABOUT
THE DREAM BECAUSE I THOUGHT,
WHY ALARM HER?
BUT THEN STEFAN'S HOUSEKEEPER
CALLED.
HE'S MISSING.
NED: FOR HOW LONG?
CHLOE: JUST THIS EVENING.
NED: WELL, I'M SURE HE'S BACK
HOME BY NOW.
CHLOE: ALEXIS WENT TO CHECK,
AND SHE HASN'T CALLED.
STEFAN ARRANGED A MEETING
WITH HIS ESTATE MANAGERS
TONIGHT, AND APPARENTLY
THEY FLEW IN FROM ALL OVER
THE WORLD.
WHY WOULD HE NOT SHOW FOR THAT?
NED: STEFAN CASSADINE IS
NOTORIOUSLY SELF-CENTERED.
IT'S EXACTLY LIKE HIM TO DRAG
ALEXIS OVER TO WYNDEMERE
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
INSTEAD OF JUST TELLING
HER THAT, YOU KNOW, HE WENT OUT
OF TOWN.
CHLOE: SO, AM I CRAZY?
AM I JUST TAKING ALL OF THIS WAY
TOO SERIOUSLY?
NED: SOMEONE TOLD YOU THAT
STEFAN CASSADINE MIGHT BE ABLE
TO HELP YOU SAVE YOUR SIGHT,
SO WHY SHOULDN'T YOU DREAM ABOUT
HIM?
BUT I THINK THAT'S ALL IT WAS --
A DREAM.
I'M SURE THE MAN IS JUST FINE.

MAC: HEY. COME ON IN.
KEVIN: HEY. THANKS.
MAC: THANKS FOR COMING BY.
KEVIN: ANYTIME.
MAC: I SPOKE TO GARCIA.
HE TOLD ME THERE WAS NO WORD
ON CHRISTINA.
HOW'S LUCY?
KEVIN: FRANTIC.
SHE'S TRYING TO CONVINCE HERSELF
THAT JULIE WON'T HURT CHRISTINA.
I TEND TO AGREE.
JULIE IS THE BABY'S NATURAL
MOTHER.
MAC: THERE'S NO GUARANTEES
OF ANYTHING.
KEVIN: I TAKE IT THIS HAS
TO DO WITH FELICIA.
HAS SHE DONE SOMETHING
TO THE GIRLS, NEGLECTED THEM
SOMEHOW?
MAC: I FILED FOR DIVORCE
AND PETITIONED FOR CUSTODY.
KEVIN: HOW'D FELICIA TAKE
THAT?
MAC: SHE REMINDED ME THAT I'M
NOT THEIR BIOLOGICAL PARENT
AND SWORE SHE'D FIGHT ME.
KEVIN: IS THAT WHY I'M HERE?
YOU WANT ME TO TESTIFY
ON YOUR BEHALF?
MAC: I WANT TO KNOW IF I'M
DOING THE RIGHT THING.
IF FILING FOR CUSTODY IS
A MISTAKE, HOW CAN I BEST
PROTECT THOSE GIRLS?
KEVIN: "THE RIGHT THING."
THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE, BUT IT
MIGHT MEAN GIVING UP MORE THAN
YOU'RE WILLING TO SACRIFICE.
MAC: DON'T ASK ME TO DROP
THE DIVORCE.
KEVIN: FELICIA DOESN'T NEED
YOU TO BE HER HUSBAND, MAC.
SHE NEEDS YOU TO BE HER FRIEND.

LUKE: YOU'RE LEAVING SO SOON?
FELICIA: I NEED TO BE HOME
WHEN MY GIRLS WAKE UP.
LUKE: OH.
YEAH. OK.
WELL, THAT MAKES SENSE,
DOESN'T IT?
FELICIA: YOU SAVED ME
TONIGHT.
YOU KEPT ME FROM WALKING
INTO THAT POLICE DEPARTMENT
AND ALMOST LOSING ANY CHANCE
I MIGHT HAVE OF KEEPING
MY GIRLS.
INSTEAD, YOU BROUGHT ME HERE
AND REMINDED ME THAT I AM STRONG
ENOUGH TO FIGHT BACK.
LUKE: IS THAT WHAT WE WERE
DOING?
FELICIA: OH, NO.
NO.
WHO I AM IN THIS ROOM IS WHO
I AM IN MY HEART.
BUT I'M A MOTHER.
AND IF I WASN'T A MOTHER,
I WOULD STAY HERE WITH YOU SOUTH
OF THE BORDER, BUT I CAN'T.
BECAUSE MY GIRLS ARE MY LIFE.
THEY'RE MORE IMPORTANT TO ME
THAN -- THAN ORPHEY.
AND THEY LOVE MAC, AND THEY NEED
HIM.
AND I HAVE TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT
FOR THEM, EVEN IF IT MEANS
I HAVE TO GO BACK TO HIM.
LUKE: OK.
OK.

LUKE: I HAVE TO TELL YOU,
ORPHEY --
THE THOUGHT OF YOU
GROVELING TO ANYBODY
IS MORE THAN I CAN TAKE.
FELICIA: OH, NO.
GROVELING IS NO LONGER
AN OPTION.
LUKE: GOOD.
AND DON'T EVER LET IT BE.
FELICIA: THERE CAN'T BE
A CUSTODY TRIAL, THOUGH,
BECAUSE EVEN IF I DO WIN,
IT WILL TEAR MY GIRLS APART.
AND EVERY TIME I LEFT THEM,
I ALWAYS PROMISED THEM THAT
I WOULD MAKE IT UP TO THEM.
AND I THINK, FOR THEIR SAKE,
I HAVE TO TRY TO MAKE
A COMPROMISE WITH MAC.
LUKE: THE FIRST THING ON THAT
LIST IS GOING TO BE STAY AWAY
FROM ME.
BUT, YOU KNOW --
FELICIA: WHAT?
LUKE: LISTEN, YOU BETTER
GET HOME
BEFORE I REMEMBER
WHAT A SELFISH S.O.B. I CAN BE.
FELICIA: NO REGRETS,
REMEMBER?
I CAN'T BE SORRY.
I WON'T BE SORRY.
DO YOU REMEMBER ME SAYING THAT?
LUKE: YEAH, I DO.

KEVIN: I'VE BEEN THINKING
ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON
WITH FELICIA AND WHY SHE SEEMS
TO BE REELING SO FAR OUT
OF CONTROL.
FRANKLY, I THINK IT HAS LESS
TO DO WITH SPENCER'S PRESENCE
THAN IT DOES WITH YOUR ABSENCE.
SHE COUNTS ON YOU, MAC.
THROUGH ALL YOUR UPS AND DOWNS,
SHE'S NEVER LOST YOU BEFORE.
AND I THINK THAT'S WHY SHE'S
SO TERRIFIED.
AND THAT MAKES HER MORE AND MORE
DESPERATE, AND SHE MAKES MORE
BAD CHOICES, AND THAT ONLY
PUSHES YOU FURTHER AWAY.
IT'S BECOME A VICIOUS CYCLE NOW,
AND I THINK YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE
WHO CAN BREAK IT.
MAC: BY TAKING HER BACK?
KEVIN: NO.
NO.
BY COMPROMISING.
IF FELICIA IS NOT AFRAID THAT
SHE'LL LOSE THE GIRLS,
THAT SHE'S NOT CONSTANTLY UNDER
THE PRESSURE TO MAKE AMENDS
OR TO TRY TO GET YOU BACK,
THAT WHETHER OR NOT YOU'RE
MARRIED THAT YOU'LL SUPPORT
HER THE WAY YOU ALWAYS HAVE,
THEN I THINK SHE'LL STEADY DOWN.
BUT THAT ALSO MEANS THAT YOU'LL
HAVE TO PUT ASIDE YOUR ANGER,
ALL YOUR JUSTIFIED HURT, AND LET
HER KNOW THAT YOU TRUST
HER UNTIL SHE CAN TRUST HERSELF.
MAC: I'M NOT SURE I CAN DO
THAT.

SONNY: WE MADE A MESS OF IT.
YOU GOT -- I THINK -- YOU KNOW
WHAT?
WE GOT TO STEAM --
STEAM THE PAPER FIRST.
TV ROOM'S FINE, YOU KNOW?
WE GET AN AUDIO SYSTEM,
GET SOUNDPROOF WALLS.
THAT WAY WE CAN STAY UP LATE
AT NIGHT AND NOT WAKE UP
THE KIDS, YOU KNOW?
I MEAN -- I'M SORRY.
DID MICHAEL SEE ME WRECK THAT
CRADLE?
CARLY: NO.
SONNY: I JUST --
I COULDN'T STAND SEEING
IT THERE EMPTY, YOU KNOW,
AND I HATED IT BEING THERE
WITH THE BABY NOT IN IT.
CARLY: IT'S LIKE ME
WITH THE PAPER.
YOU HELPED ME.
I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
FOR YOU.
I MEAN, I DIDN'T KNOW
IF I SHOULD TOUCH YOU
OR IF I SHOULD JUST --
SONNY: NO, NO, NO.
CARLY: STOP YOU.
SONNY: IT'S GOOD YOU DIDN'T,
YOU KNOW, BECAUSE I GET --
I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO SAY IT,
YOU KNOW?
IT'S LIKE I WANT TO
FIGHT AGAINST SOMETHING
AND THERE'S NOTHING THERE.
AND THEN I -- AH, MAN, I JUST
WANT TO BREAK, SMASH THINGS.
BUT WHAT GOOD DOES IT DO WHEN
SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL'S BROKEN?
CARLY: MAYBE THAT'S
THE POINT.
MAYBE NOTHING SHOULD BE
BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE, YOU KNOW,
OUR BABY'S GONE.
SONNY: WELL --
WELL, I MEAN --
YOU DON'T REMEMBER SOMEONE BY,
YOU KNOW, WRECKING WHAT WAS
THEIRS, TEARING DOWN,
BREAKING DOWN --
THAT DOESN'T BRING THEM BACK.
WHEN MY WIFE DIED, IT WAS
MY FAULT, AND I --
I USED HER TO PUNISH ME.
AND I WAITED TOO LONG
AND IN THE WRONG WAY.
AND THEN I REALIZED THAT'S NOT
WHAT SHE WANTED.
THAT'S NOT WHAT OUR SON WANTS
EITHER, CARLY.
HE WAS A BLESSING FOR THE LITTLE
TIME WE HAD WITH HIM.
THAT'S WHAT WE GET TO KEEP.
NOT HIS STUFF OR, YOU KNOW,
HOW EMPTY WE FEEL WITHOUT HIM.
LISTEN.
YOU GOT TO WAKE UP EVERY MORNING
AND TELL YOURSELF,
"I HAD A SON,
AND HE KNEW HE WAS LOVED."
CARLY: YOU'RE SUCH A GOOD
DAD, YOU KNOW?
SONNY: LET'S GET OUT OF HERE.

SONNY: ALL RIGHT.
SONNY: YOU SHOULD PROBABLY
GET SOME SLEEP.
CARLY: SO SHOULD YOU.
SONNY: HOW ARE YOUR HANDS
AFTER THAT SCRAPING?
CARLY: THEY DON'T EVEN HURT.
CARLY: YOU EVER THINK
ABOUT HOLDING HIM
SOMETIMES?
SONNY: YEAH.
CARLY: CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT
YOU THINK?
SONNY: WELL, WHEN I --
WHEN MICHAEL WAS ABOUT
3 TO 4 MONTHS, I CAME HERE
TO VISIT, YOU KNOW, AND I HELD
HIM.
HE WAS SO CUTE, LOOKING UP
AT ME, SMILING, YOU KNOW.
WARM AND STRONG.
HE WAS TURNING HIS NECK AROUND,
TRYING TO LOOK AT EVERYTHING,
TRYING TO FOCUS HIS EYES.
IT WAS THE MOST FRAGILE THING
I EVER HELD, YOU KNOW?
SO SMALL.
I MEAN, OUR BABY
WOULD HAVE BEEN SMALLER
THAN THAT.
YEAH, SOMETIMES I IMAGINE THAT
FRAILTY AND WARMTH AND --
BUT EVEN TINIER, YOU KNOW,
WITH DARK HAIR, DIMPLES --
CARLY: SHUT UP.
YOU WISH.
YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK ABOUT?
I THINK ABOUT PUTTING HIM
IN THAT LITTLE OUTFIT THAT
I BOUGHT FOR HIM AND YOU AND ME
BRINGING HIM HOME FROM
THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE, YOU KNOW,
I DIDN'T DO THAT WITH MICHAEL.
SONNY: YEAH.
CARLY: HE WAS, LIKE,
2 MONTHS OLD BEFORE I EVER
TOUCHED HIM.
AND I THINK SOMETIMES --
I WONDER IF DEEP DOWN
HE REMEMBERS OR HE KNOWS
AND HE FEELS LIKE I DON'T WANT
HIM.
SONNY: MICHAEL KNOWS HOW MUCH
YOU LOVE HIM.
CARLY: I WAS DEPRESSED,
YOU KNOW?
CALL IT POSTPARTUM DEPRESSION.
I WAS.
NOBODY BELIEVES THAT.
YOU KNOW, PEOPLE THINK I'M JUST
SO SELFISH THAT I RATHER -- I'D
RATHER LAY ON A BEACH SOMEWHERE
READING A MAGAZINE THAN BE
WITH MY OWN BABY.
BUT I NEVER MADE IT
TO THE BEACH.
I JUST -- I RENTED ONE OF THOSE
TACKY, CHEESY SINGLES --
YOU KNOW, LITTLE APARTMENT
RENTAL THINGS.
AND I JUST LAID IN BED.
AND I MISSED MY BABY SO MUCH.
MY ARMS -- I ACHED TO HOLD HIM,
YOU KNOW?
WHEN I FINALLY CAME BACK,
I SAW JASON HOLD HIM.
AND I WOULD SCREAM AT MYSELF
IN MY HEAD, YOU KNOW, "DO IT.
PICK HIM UP."
BUT I FINALLY HELD HIM
BECAUSE BOBBIE PUT HIM
IN MY ARMS.
HE WAS PERFECT.
HE WAS SO PERFECT.
AND IT WAS -- I SWEAR HE KNEW
ME.
IT'S LIKE HE WAS WAITING,
YOU KNOW?
BUT I WASN'T GOING TO MAKE
OUR BABY WAIT.
I WAS GOING TO PICK HIM UP.
I WAS GOING TO HOLD HIM,
AND I WAS GOING TO TELL HIM THAT
I LOVED HIM FROM THE MINUTE
HE WAS BORN.
AND I WOULD'VE.
I KNOW.
SONNY: I KNOW, TOO.

MAC: WHAT IF I DO EVERYTHING
YOU SAY AND FELICIA ABANDONS
THE GIRLS AGAIN?
KEVIN: THEN THEY'LL STILL
HAVE YOU.
THE DIFFERENCE IS THEY WON'T
HAVE TO GO THROUGH A PROTRACTED
CUSTODY BATTLE.
YOU MAY WIN, MAC, BUT YOU'LL
HAVE TO RUIN FELICIA TO DO IT.
AND NO ONE COULD CONVINCE ME
THAT THAT WILL BENEFIT
THE GIRLS.
MAC: SHE HAS DISAPPOINTED
THEM SO MANY TIMES.
I FEEL LIKE I'M MAKING IT WORSE
IF I LET HER DO IT AGAIN.
KEVIN: BUT THE ALTERNATIVE IS
TO CUT FELICIA OUT OF GEORGIE
AND MAXIE'S LIFE.
EVEN IF THAT WERE POSSIBLE,
DO YOU THINK THAT'S WHAT
THEY WANT?
YOU KEEP TELLING ME HOW MUCH
THEY NEED FELICIA.
YOU COULD BE THE ONE TO BRING
HER BACK TO THEM.
MAC: BY GIVING HER
THE FREEDOM TO CHASE AFTER
SPENCER WHENEVER SHE WANTS?
KEVIN: NOW IT SOUNDS LIKE
YOU'RE TRYING TO PUNISH HER.
MAC: MAYBE I AM.
I'M HUMAN.
KEVIN: SEEMS TO ME YOUR ANGER
IS APPROPRIATE AND EXTREMELY
WELL-MANAGED.
MAC: OH, YEAH, WELL,
DON'T BET ON IT.
STEFAN CASSADINE TURNED UP
MISSING TONIGHT.
HE'S ONLY BEEN GONE A FEW HOURS.
I'M ALREADY INVESTIGATING
SPENCER FOR MURDER.
KEVIN: YOU THINK HE DID IT?
MAC: WELL, I'M SURE HE HAD
THE MOTIVE.
BUT I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE REST.
YOU KNOW WHAT?
IT DOESN'T PAIN ME ANY TO THINK
ABOUT SPENCER LOCKED UP
FOR MURDER.
LOOK, KEVIN, I'M GOING TO GET
BACK TO THE STATION.
YOU SHOULD GET BACK
TO YOUR WIFE.
I'M REALLY GLAD THINGS WORKED
OUT FOR YOU.
NO ONE DESERVES IT MORE.
KEVIN: YOU DID.
[DOOR OPENS]
FELICIA: HELLO.
KEVIN: HI.
FELICIA: THOUGHT I RECOGNIZED
KEVIN'S CAR OUTSIDE.
SO, WHAT ARE YOU TWO DOING HERE?
MAC: WHERE WERE YOU?
I WAS WORRIED.

FELICIA: I'VE BEEN DRIVING
AROUND, TRYING TO CLEAR MY HEAD.
I IMAGINE MAC TOLD YOU WHAT'S
GOING ON.
KEVIN: WE TRY TO SUPPORT EACH
OTHER.
FELICIA: YOU THINK HE'S RIGHT
TO TRY AND TAKE MY GIRLS?
KEVIN: I THINK HE WANTS
WHAT'S BEST FOR THE CHILDREN.
AND I THINK YOU DO, TOO.
WHY DON'T YOU GIVE LUCY A CALL
WHEN YOU HAVE A CHANCE.
IT WOULD REALLY HELP HER TO HEAR
FROM A FRIEND.
MAC: SEE YOU, MATE.
KEVIN: YEAH.
FELICIA: WHAT'S GOING
ON WITH LUCY?
MAC: JULIE RAMSEY KIDNAPPED
CHRISTINA, AND IT DOESN'T LOOK
GOOD.
SHE'S GOT ENOUGH MONEY
TO DISAPPEAR WITHOUT A TRACE.
FELICIA: SHE MUST BE LOSING
HER MIND.
IT'S TERRIFYING TO THINK SOMEONE
COULD TAKE YOUR CHILD AWAY.
MAC: THAT'S WHY I WAITED.
FELICIA: TO TELL ME ABOUT
LUCY?
MAC: BECAUSE OF OUR
CHILDREN.
MAXIE CALLED, SAID SHE
AND GEORGIE FOUND THE CUSTODY
PAPERS.
THEY WERE CONFUSED.
I CAME OVER TO EXPLAIN.
FELICIA: HOW WOULD
YOU EXPLAIN THAT MY CHILDREN ARE
BETTER OFF AWAY FROM ME?
MAC: I SAID IT WAS UP
TO THEM, THAT I'D DROP IT
IF THEY WANTED ME TO.
FELICIA: MAC, THAT'S NOT
FAIR.
THEY'RE ANGRY WITH ME.
OF COURSE THEY WANT TO LIVE
WITH YOU.
THEY'RE JUST TOO YOUNG TO MAKE
THAT DECISION RIGHT NOW.
MAC: I AGREE, FELICIA.
I DON'T WANT A CUSTODY BATTLE.
THE GIRLS HAVE BEEN THROUGH
ENOUGH ALREADY, ALL RIGHT?
FOR THEIR SAKE, WE NEED TO FIND
ANOTHER WAY.
YOU'RE THEIR MOTHER.
THEY LOVE YOU.
THEY NEED TO BE ABLE TO TRUST
YOU, TOO.
FELICIA: THEY CAN.
I NEVER MEANT TO DO ANYTHING
TO VIOLATE --
MAC: FELICIA, DON'T EXPLAIN,
OK?
IT JUST TAKES US PLACES WE BOTH
WANT TO AVOID.
CAN WE JUST AGREE THAT MAXIE
AND GEORGIE ARE WHAT'S MOST
IMPORTANT AND THAT A CUSTODY
BATTLE WOULD ONLY HURT THEM?
FELICIA: YES.
MAC: THEN WE NEED TO REASSURE
THEM THAT THEY'RE NOT GOING
TO LOSE EITHER ONE OF US.
I DON'T KNOW HOW, BUT WE'LL
THINK OF SOMETHING.
FELICIA: SO I DON'T NEED
TO CALL A LAWYER?
MAC: YOU DO FOR THE DIVORCE.
BUT I WON'T TRY AND TAKE
THE GIRLS.
FELICIA: THANK YOU.
MAC: I'M GOING TO GET BACK
TO THE OFFICE.
MAXIE AND GEORGIE DON'T KNOW
THAT I'M DROPPING THE CUSTODY
PETITION.
MAYBE WE CAN TELL THEM TOGETHER.
FELICIA: WHATEVER YOU WANT.
MAC: I --
I KNOW HOW UPSET YOU WERE.
WHEN I HEARD YOU TOOK OFF, I WAS
AFRAID SOMETHING MIGHT'VE
HAPPENED.
I'M GLAD YOU'RE HOME SAFE.

LUKE: OH, THIS IS GREAT.
THIS IS GREAT.
THE SPUDS OUT THERE WRECKING
MY JOINT TELL ME YOU'RE
IN CHARGE OF THIS INVESTIGATION.
TAGGERT: THAT'S AN
AFFIRMATIVE.
WE HAVE A SEARCH WARRANT
TO SEARCH THE PREMISES.
LUKE: ON WHAT GROUNDS?
TAGGERT: HOW'D YOU HURT
YOUR HAND, MR. SPENCER?
LOOKS LIKE YOU GOT A PRETTY HARD
RIGHT THERE.
LUKE: WHAT DO YOU WANT HERE,
LIEUTENANT?
TAGGERT: STEFAN CASSADINE
DISAPPEARED.
PCPD THINKS YOU'RE INVOLVED.

[TELEPHONE RINGS]
NED: CHLOE MORGAN'S SUITE.
ALEXIS, YOU KNOW, IT'S A REALLY
BAD CONNECTION.
I CAN BARELY HEAR YOU.
WHERE ARE YOU?
WHY ARE YOU GOING NOW?
DID YOU CHECK HIS CALENDAR?
WELL, MAYBE HE --
ALL RIGHT.
OK.
NO, NO, CHLOE'S FINE.
ALL RIGHT, CALL US WHEN YOU GET
THERE.
CHLOE: THEY CAN'T FIND
STEFAN.
NED: AND HE'D MADE NO TRAVEL
PLANS, NONE OF HIS CLOTHES ARE
MISSING, ALL OF HIS CARS ARE
ACCOUNTED FOR, AND HIS JET IS
SITTING ON THE TARMAC.
SO ALEXIS HAS REPORTED HIM
MISSING, AND NOW SHE'S OFF
TO GREECE TO SEE IF HE MIGHT'VE
GONE BACK TO THE CASSADINE
ISLAND WITHOUT TELLING ANYBODY.
CHLOE: WHAT ARE THE CHANCES
OF THAT?
NED: NOT VERY GOOD,
BUT SHE WANTS TO MAKE SURE.
CHLOE: SO, THE NIGHT I DREAM
ABOUT STEFAN CASSADINE DYING,
HE DISAPPEARS.
AM I CRAZY, OR DID WHAT I DREAM
REALLY HAPPEN?

CARLY: DO YOU EVER THINK
OF THINGS -- OTHER THINGS,
YOU KNOW, BESIDES HOLDING HIM?
SONNY: SOMETIMES.
CARLY: LIKE WHAT?
YOU PROBABLY IMAGINE
HIS CHRISTENING, RIGHT?
HAVING HIM BAPTIZED IN FRONT
OF A CHURCH FULL OF PEOPLE.
SONNY: NOTHING THAT FANCY.
CARLY: WELL, WHAT, THEN?
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT?
TELL ME.
SONNY: AH --
CARLY: WHAT?
SONNY: I DON'T KNOW.
YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES I --
CARLY: COME ON.
SONNY: I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE
HIM A BATH.
YOU KNOW, WATCH HIM RELAX
IN THE WATER, CHECKING OUT
HIS TOES AND FINGERS.
THEN DIAPER HIM.
WELL, MAYBE NOT DIAPER HIM.
GET HIM DRESSED, YOU KNOW?
PUT ON ONE OF THOSE HATS
YOU BOUGHT SO HIS HEAD WOULDN'T
GET COLD.
AND THEN YOU CAN FEED HIM.
THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE,
YOU KNOW --
WATCHING YOU NURSE.
AND IF THE DAY WASN'T TOO HOT,
WE COULD TAKE HIM AND MICHAEL
TO THE PARK.
WE COULD SPREAD A BLANKET
ON THE GRASS.
HE COULD LOOK UP AT THE SKY
WHILE WE PLAYED DUMP TRUCKS
WITH HIS BROTHER.
AND THEN MAYBE WE COULD BRING
ALONG SOME STUFFED ANIMALS
SO HE COULD REACH OUT FOR THEM,
YOU KNOW, AND WATCH WHILE
HE LEARNED TO LIFT HIS HEAD UP
AND ROLL OVER.
AND THEN WE'D HOLD OUR HAND --
HOLD OUR HANDS OUT TO HIM,
YOU KNOW?
AND HE'D GRAB THEM WITH
HIS LITTLE FINGERS, AND WE'D
LOOK AT EACH OTHER LIKE A COUPLE
OF IDIOTS, SAYING HOW STRONG
HE WAS, HOW
PERFECT.
AND THEN HE'D LOOK AT US AND
HE'D KNOW THAT HE DIDN'T HAVE
TO BE AFRAID BECAUSE HIS --
HIS MOM AND DAD WERE THERE AND
WE WOULD DO ANYTHING TO KEEP HIM
SAFE.

>> ON THE NEXT
"GENERAL HOSPITAL" --

CHLOE: WE THINK WE MAY HAVE
SOME INFORMATION FOR YOU.
MAC: YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED
TO STEFAN?

LUKE: WHILE WE WERE TOGETHER
LAST NIGHT, STEFAN CASSADINE
DISAPPEARED.
I'M THE COPS' NUMBER ONE
SUSPECT.

SONNY: IN A FEW HOURS,
THIS WHOLE THING'S GOING TO BE
OVER.
CARLY: CALL ME CRAZY --
WHAT IF IT'S NOT?
