>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Janine: Did you miss me?

Nikolas: Elizabeth is safe. She will be back here when this is all over.

Helena: You win back Nikolas' love -- I would like to see it. How are you going to do that?

Jax: This man Cain is really a Cassadine?

Gia: Somebody has to stop him.

Carly: If you can't see how good we can be together, then I am wasting my time.

Gia: Did you hear what I just said? Stavros Cassadine is alive.

Jax: Look, the issue isn't my hearing. It's your ability to sort fact from fiction.

Gia: It's true. He is calling himself Lucien Cain. He claims he is some sort of investment banker or something.

Jax: It's my understanding that Stavros Cassadine was killed years ago.

Gia: Correct.

Jax: Okay, you can't have it both ways. He either died or he didn't.

Gia: He did, but he was brought back to life.

Jax: Now I'm concerned.

Gia: Finally.

Jax: About you.

Gia: Excuse me?

Jax: Look, it's an old story, Gia -- a new career, glare of the spotlight, the pressure to perform, and the impulse to escape it all is understandable.

Gia: I am not on drugs, okay?

Jax: Then what? Unless this is some kind of bad joke --

Gia: It is the truth.

Jax: Okay, I'm currently being detained by the police and it isn't much fun, so if you'll excuse me.

Gia: Okay, listen up, Mr. God's gift to the universe. Stavros Cassadine is alive. I wouldn't be telling you this if I didn't know for a fact that it was true. So if you care anything about the Spencers or your friend Alexis, then you will believe what I am telling you.

Alexis: I don't want to have another word with you unless absolutely necessary, Mr. Giambetti, and if it's a delivery --

Sonny: Good morning, Alexis.

Alexis: I'm sure you think it is.

Sonny: Okay, now, look, if -- if you got a problem with something that I did, then you tell me, not my bodyguard.

Alexis: I have a problem with something that you did. I'd love to discuss it with you now.

Alexis: I would like to know exactly what you did to A.J. Quartermaine.

Sonny: Protected Carly and Michael from him the only way I know how.

Carly: Lucien, what are you doing here? How did you -- how'd you get in?

Stavros: Your nanny said it would be all right if I waited. I'm sorry. Is this a bad time?

Carly: Well, when isn't it?

Stavros: I don't mean to intrude. I just didn't want to be alone. I was hoping that I could take you and your son to breakfast.

Carly: If you're looking for sunshine and a cheery personality, you're in the wrong place. I -- I'm not really in a merry mood.

Stavros: Is there something I can do to help?

Carly: I doubt it. My husband has pulled the rug out from under me for, like, I don't know, the hundredth time.

Stavros: It sounds like you could use a friend, as well.

Carly: Look, I appreciate the offer, and I don't mean to be rude, but breakfast is out. I'm taking my son to the park. And I wouldn't be very good company anyway, so -- when I'm with my son, I'm focused on him completely.

Stavros: Don't apologize for looking after your son.

Carly: I'm not. I -- it's just if you've ever spent time with a 5-year-old at a park, it can be exhausting, so -- you'd know that if you had a child.

Stavros: I did. I had a son. I lost him.

Nikolas: Lucky, Elizabeth is safe. I didn't hurt her. She is fine. All right? And once we stop Helena, I swear to you she will come back.

Lucky: You think I don't remember what happened? I saw Elizabeth. I saw her in the chair. I held her body in my arms. She was cold and pale. She wasn't breathing.

Nikolas: Lucky, it was an act. It was an act to fool Helena. Laura gave us a drug to slow down Elizabeth's heartbeat and her breathing, all right?

Lucky: Do you think I don't remember what I saw?

Nikolas: God!

Lucky: Elizabeth is gone because of you and your twisted little family.

Nikolas: Man --

Lucky: And believe me when I say this -- you will pay for it.

Laura: No, Lucky, don't. Listen to your brother. He's telling you the truth.

Janine: Hello, sweet cheeks! Oh, I missed you so much! Did you miss me? Oh! Oh-oh-oh!

Edward: What's the meaning of this? Who -- who the devil are you?

Janine: Eddie? It's me, Janine.

Edward: Is that supposed to mean something to me?

Janine: It did.

Edward: Well, it doesn't now!

Janine: Eddie? How can you say that? Well, our time together in Atlantic City was like a dream come true for me.

Edward: Atlantic City?

Janine: It was magical. You said so yourself, and you said that if I were ever in Port Charles I should stop by and say hello. Don't you remember?

A.J.: I'd love to hear more about this magical time in Atlantic City.

Edward: There is nothing to hear. This -- this young woman obviously has me confused with somebody else.

Janine: Okay, what's wrong? Sweet cheeks, are you okay?

A.J.: Not since you started calling him sweet cheeks, I'll bet.

Edward: You mind your own business! Young lady, I'm -- I'm terribly sorry, but I just have no recollection of -- of you whatsoever. I don't.

Skye: My grandfather suffers from memory lapses.

Janine: Oh.

Skye: He'll forget weeks at a time occasionally. Even family members, sometimes for years.

Edward: Oh --

Skye: But not to worry. You see, all of a sudden, something will happen, and, oh, he'll remember everything as clear as a bell.

Edward: I will thank you to stay out of this!

Janine: Maybe this will bring it all back.

Skye: Ooh, what a wonderful shot of you, Grandfather. Perhaps we should have it framed.

Edward: Let me see that. Ooh --

Lila: Good morning!

Edward: Oh.

Lila: Good morning. Oh -- I didn't realize we had a guest.

Skye: Um -- my guest, actually, an old friend from Pine Valley. Lila Quartermaine, I'd like you to meet Janine -- Trump. Janine, this is my grandmother.

Janine: It's a pleasure to meet you, Mrs. Quartermaine.

Lila: Oh, please call me Lila.

Janine: Oh. I will. Thank you, ma'am.

Skye: Yes, Janine is in town for a very important reunion.

Edward: She is?

Skye: Yes. Port Charles U., Class of 1980.

Lila: Oh, that sounds delightful. Will you be staying here with us?

Edward: No, no, definitely not. She has made other arrangements, haven't you?

A.J.: Well, actually, we have plenty of room. Let me get your bags.

Reginald: Whoa, whoa, when was the last time you volunteered to carry somebody's bags?

Skye: Oh, actually, A.J., Janine will be staying on campus. Yeah, she's going to be catching up with old classmates, taking part in planned activities. Just part of the fun, right?

Reginald: Okay, Skye being nice is rarer than A.J. volunteering to carry somebody's bags. What's going on here?

Edward: No one asked for your opinion.

Reginald: Neither one of these two is to be trusted.

Skye: Well, don't look now, but your paranoia's showing -- Reggie. Grandmother, I'm going to show Janine the grounds, if that's okay?

Lila: Of course.

Janine: Nice to meet you, Lila.

Skye: Come on, this way.

Lila: Reginald, I have to talk with Cook. Will you please take me down there?

Reginald: Sure.

Edward: Don't give me that look. This is not what you think.

Skye: Don't be disappointed. I'm sure it was just the surprise, that's all.

Janine: When I first met Eddie, he seemed so vital and so sincere. Is sweet cheek's mind really going or is he just trying to get rid of me or --

Skye: Oh, I know my grandfather. Believe me; I have seen that twinkle in his eye before.

Janine: What twinkle?

Skye: You didn't see it? You didn't see that look when you walked into the room? Oh, believe me; he is going to be just delighted that you've come.

Janine: Are you sure?

Skye: Oh, I absolutely guarantee it. But from now on, you just leave old sweet cheeks to me, okay?

Edward: This Janine business is a mistake.

A.J.: You're a mistake, you old goat. Can't wait to see you worm your way out of this one.

[A.J. laughs]

Edward: Oh.

Lucky: You can't actually believe Nikolas. He's on their side. Nikolas chose to be on their side, Mom.

Laura: No. Nikolas chose to help you, and I believe him. I've been in contact with him all along. I've been helping him. He's on our side.

Lucky: There's only one side to the Cassadines. It's their own side.

Laura: No, you're wrong.

Lucky: I don't think so.

Nikolas: I have been faking my loyalty to Helena to get her to tell me her plans, Lucky, how she controls you so I can set you free.

Laura: And your father was in on it, too, until Helena got to him.

Nikolas: The day that Luke punched me at the grill? It was an act, like everything I have done since.

Laura: Elizabeth was involved, too, Lucky.

Lucky: So why are you telling me this now?

Nikolas: Well, because it doesn't matter anymore. I screwed up. Helena's onto me. Now, look, everything I have done -- hurting you and everyone around me -- it took everything I had, but it was the only way I could save you. You are my brother, Lucky. I love you. I respect you. Now I'm asking you for your forgiveness.

Carly: It's extremely difficult to lose a child.

Stavros: Yes, well, I can see you understand.

Carly: Yeah, more than I would like to. What happened? Was he sick? Was it an accident? Sorry -- as if it would make a difference. We don't have to talk about it. It's --

Stavros: He didn't die. He was taken from me by his mother's grasping, self-righteous family.

Carly: Because they stole him?

Stavros: No. They lied to him. They told him that I was a monster before he was old enough to understand the truth.

Carly: Well -- well, what was their reason? Did you try and take him away from his mother?

Stavros: Oh, God, no. I would have moved heaven and earth to keep them together. Her family preyed on her fears. They made it impossible for me to see him or speak to him.  And now he's grown and we're strangers.

Carly: Look -- look, stay. Sit. Look, my son, he doesn't know his biological father, and if I had my way, he never would because he is a drunk and he's dangerous and Michael needs to be protected from him. But, you know, I try never to say bad things about his father when Michael can hear because I don't think it's fair to make the child suffer for the parent's mistake. Look, if you really love your son and you want to see him because it's best for him and not necessarily for you, don't give up.

Stavros: You had to fight for your child, didn't you?

Carly: Yeah, with everything I had. But I had help. I had a very good friend, and my husband, for as flawed as he is, he loves Michael and he's a wonderful father. Michael needs him, and, you know, I'm sure your son still needs you, too.

Stavros: It's nice to know that not everybody thinks I'm a raving lunatic. Thank you.

Carly: Yeah.

Stavros: Thank you. I -- it's nice. It's not often that I meet a woman who thinks the way I do.

Carly: Well, happy to help.

Stavros: This feels like the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Sonny: If I put you in a position to chose between me and your principles, I apologize.

Alexis: I suppose it's too much to hope for that you're just maybe a little bit sorry for what you did to A.J.

Sonny: Of course I am.

Alexis: But you would do it again.

Sonny: No.

Alexis: Why? Because you thought you were wrong?

Sonny: No, because it was sloppy.

Alexis: Ah!

Sonny: I mean, I got what I wanted, but I hurt too many people.

Alexis: How do you do that? How can you be so considerate and yet so amoral at the same time?

Sonny: I've been like that my whole life.

Alexis: Yes, I know, and look at me -- I've agreed to represent you.

Sonny: And I appreciate that. I will keep you away from anything that's questionable.

Alexis: Good, I really -- don't touch me -- I really appreciate that because if A.J. has even a shred of evidence --

Sonny: He won't. He won't.

Alexis: I have serious misgivings about representing you, even though I intensely dislike him, and you, for some ungodly reason, are still my friend.

Sonny: Thank you.

Alexis: You're welcome. Was there anything else?

Sonny: Yeah. The cops might charge me with abetting a fugitive.

Alexis: Mm-hmm, and why would they do that?

Sonny: Well -- what do you mean, why?

Alexis: Well, did you?

Sonny: Did I?

Alexis: Yeah.

Sonny: Technically, no.

Alexis: Who's the fugitive?

Sonny: Angel Ellis.

Alexis: Quelle surprise. Any evidence?

Sonny: You might want to sit down.

Alexis: Oh, God.

Sonny: Okay, Carly and Angel, they switched places, and Jax got her out of the country and we were, like, decoys for the cops.

Alexis: How, exactly?

Sonny: How? Well, Carly dressed up like Angel, and we were on the couch at Angel's house, and the cops were peeking through, you know, looking in there, and you get the picture.

Alexis: Vividly.

Sonny: But that's not what I'm here to talk to you about.

Alexis: There's more?

Sonny: Yeah. Yeah. As Carly was, like, in my arms -- you know, we had to make it look good for the cops -- so, you know, things started happening in my --

Alexis: Okay, all right. You know what? I don't need to hear all the details.

Sonny: No, no, but the point I'm making is we keep going in circles, Carly and I, and I thought that the -- the divorce would fix it, but it didn't. Maybe I should go back to her.

Alexis: You want to halt the divorce?

Stavros: Thank you.

Carly: Yeah, you're welcome. Help yourself.

Stavros: I don't have to apologize for anything, do I?

Carly: I don't think so.

Stavros: Determination, fidelity to a loved one -- these are important qualities.

Carly: Yes, they are.

Stavros: Yes, well, unfortunately, there are some people who are uncomfortable with that kind of passion. Your husband, for instance. He should be encouraging your devotion. Instead, he's pushing you away. He must be a very foolish man.

Carly: No, he is anything but. He knows what he's doing. He may be wrong about me, but he's generally right about most other things.

Stavros: He's at the very least being shortsighted, though.

Carly: No, he is 20/20. Look, I made a mistake. It was me. I made a mistake. It was an honest one, but I was trying to save his life, but --

Stavros: How could anyone think that was wrong?

Carly: Well, I did -- betray him -- sort of, technically --

Stavros: With the best of intentions, correct?

Carly: Exactly. His life was in danger and I was trying to keep him safe, so what I did is I tried to make a deal to get us all away, yes.

Stavros: To preserve your family, to preserve the life that you had together.

Carly: Yes. You know, and most people, they don't get it.

Stavros: How anyone could fault you for being true to yourself and your family is beyond my comprehension.

Carly: Whoa, you really get it, don't you?

Stavros: Yes. I had to break a few rules once. And I had to throw out some traditions and disappoint some expectations. But I did it for the woman I loved, to make a better life for us. Does that make me greedy or selfish?

Carly: No, I don't think so. I think it makes you romantic. You know, I don't think there are rules, really, when it comes to loving someone.

Stavros: All's fair in love.

Carly: It's nice to meet someone who knows what I've been through and who gets how it feels to be in love.

Gia: The Cassadines are experts at freezing, remember? They froze the entire city of Port Charles. Why is it such a stretch to believe that Helena could freeze her son until she could figure out a way to bring him back?

Jax: See, it's the "bring back" part that I'm a little unclear about.

Gia: I don't know how she did it, okay? I am a spokesmodel, not a scientist.

Jax: Which implies that you can be mistaken about the whole thing. Look, if Lucien Cain is a cousin, then perhaps you're misinterpreting a family resemblance.

Gia: It wasn't a resemblance. It was the same guy. If you don't believe me, I can show you a picture of Nikolas as a baby with his father. Have you ever seen Lucien Cain? It's the same person.

Jax: So if this is the relative that Alexis was telling me about, the one that's extremely dangerous --

[Phone rings]

Jax: Alexis, it's Jax. Pick up.

Lucky: I'm sorry. I shouldn't have --

Nikolas: No, Lucky, Lucky, look, you couldn't have known what was going on, all right? I made it impossible for you to find out.

Lucky: I don't know what I'm doing anymore. I feel like I'm a stranger in my own life.

Nikolas: Well, I got to tell you, that makes two of us. That's for sure. I've been pretending to be someone I'm not. But that's over now. We're brothers again, and we will help get you away from Helena together. All right?

Lucky: I've tried. We can't do it. Just like Elizabeth and you and my parents -- everybody has tried. Helena is very strong. I tried to defeat her by getting rid of the ice princess. But I have this feeling that she's got it back now.

Nikolas: You are stronger than you're giving yourself credit for. All right, you can't give up.

Laura: You can fight this, Lucky, and you can beat it. You're not alone. We're all in this with you, and we will win.

Nikolas: That's right. The people who love you are on your side, Lucky. We will do this together, and we will make it.

Gia: Alexis isn't answering?

Jax: Damn.

Gia: What are you going to do?

Jax: I'm going to warn her about Lucien Cain, whoever he is.

Gia: So you believe me?

Jax: Whether this man is a Cassadine relative or Alexis' long-lost brother, he's dangerous and he has to be stopped. In order to do that, I have to get Alexis to a safe place.

Taggert: Going somewhere so soon, Mr. Jacks?

Mac: I think there's a mistake, Jax. You see, you're a material witness in a capital crime. You're not going anywhere.

Sonny: Well, I'm asking you for your opinion. You are the objective observer. You know the history here.

Alexis: The definition of "objective" is impartial, as in not having any bias or prejudice for any client.

Sonny: Right.

Alexis: In particular, regarding the dispute.

Sonny: Okay. Right.

Alexis: And since I find Carly grating most of the time and I find her mildly psychotic the rest of the time and the fact that I am extremely attract-- I find you very loyal, and yet, I find you morally bankrupt, and I am clearly disqualified to be an objective observer, not to mention that I'm your lawyer.

Sonny: You're my friend, too. You said so just --

Alexis: I don't see how that's really applicable at this particular time.

Sonny: Whoa, well, all I'm asking for is your, you know, your gut reaction.

Alexis: Believe me, my gut reaction to your marriage is clearly not something that you want to hear right now.

Stavros: It's amazing how much you and I have in common. Maybe that's why I find it so easy to talk to you. Well -- look, I have some time. And it would mean a lot to me if I could spend some time at the park with you and your son. Matter of fact, I know a place that Michael will think is a true adventure, if you're interested.

Carly: You know, Michael, he really had his heart set on the park.

Stavros: Look, I know I don't really know you at all, and I don't know your son. Hearing you speak of him, though, it makes me think of all the time I didn't get to spend with my son.

Carly: Well, don't give up.

Stavros: I won't. But in the meantime, it would mean a lot to me if I could spend an hour with you and your little boy.

Leticia: Carly? Michael's all ready to go to the park, but we can't find his boat, the one that Mr. Corinthos gave him.

Carly: Oh, did you check in the kitchen? I think I saw it on the countertop.

Leticia: Oh, okay.

Carly: Hey. Michael, this is a friend of mine. His name is Mr. Cain.

Stavros: Michael, it is an honor to meet you.

Carly: Mr. Cain -- he wants to take us out for a big surprise. What do you think? All right.

Laura: Lucky, once this is all over and we're all free and clear, we'll celebrate, all of us, as a whole family. Just think about that. You know, remember the fun that we used to have? You and Dad and me and Lulu?

Lucky: Just stop, please! Please, Mom. I can't go there. Helena's changed me.

Nikolas: No, Lucky, she tried. But you fought back, okay? Don't give up now, man, please.

Laura: Listen to us. Listen to your heart.

Nikolas: Give us a chance. Give yourself a chance, please.

Lucky: No. No. Both of you stay away from me. I don't want to hurt you guys.

Laura: You won't, Lucky. You can't.

Lucky: I can! And I will! Isn't that obvious to you guys? Just forget about me. Forget about me and save yourselves.

Nikolas: Lucky, listen, I am not going to let you give up.

Stavros: Okay, yeah. Whoa, whoa, watch it. All right. Here comes the asteroid -- right there, right there. Right there. There it is. All right! Nicely -- good job.

Michael: Yay!

Carly: Oh, well, good job, Captain. Another universe saved -- well, go ahead. It's okay, go ahead. All right? Well, I am seeing a different side to you, Lucien.

Stavros: Thanks to the two of you.

Carly: I can't believe that with just one phone call from the limo you were able to get the whole arcade just to us.

Stavros: Takes a little desire and some money.

Carly: Well, you seem to be having a terrific time.

Stavros: I am, aren't I? Hmm.

Alexis: It's just not that I don't want to help you. It's just that to ask me my advice on personal relationships is like asking Scrooge personal advice on buying Christmas presents. I just plain stink at this. You know, I shut down when someone is genuinely caring about me, and I can't seem to shut up when someone is absolutely, inarguably inappropriate.

[Alexis laughs]

Alexis: Never mind. I think that you need to think of this as rationally as possible. You need to think of this as if you're making a business decision. You have options. Option A -- you can divorce Carly, even though you're obviously still in love with her and you'll never be able to forget, replace, or get over her, and you will no doubt spend an enormous amount of the rest of your life obsessing over her -- where is she? Who's she with? What's she doing? And then there's Michael, who you love just as much as Carly. All right, let's move on to option B. Option B is you could just get back together with her and then spend the rest of your life looking over your shoulder -- not that you don't already do that -- bracing yourself for the next Carly solution to any problem, real or imagined, knowing full well that this said solution will come in the form of what most people, including yourself, would consider as betrayal. There is still another choice.

Sonny: All right. Well, thanks. I'm going to go.

Alexis: No, you're not. You have asked me my opinion on this, and I feel absolutely obligated to give it to you now. Option C --

Sonny: Mm-hmm.

Alexis: Find somebody new. Find somebody reasonable. Find somebody logical. Find someone sane who will inevitably have her own personally monogrammed set of dysfunctions and could ultimately end up as neurotic as Carly -- picture that. This is just a long way of telling you that there are just no guarantees in this life, so I have given you three options, A, B, and C. Pick one.

Sonny: Why don't you -- come here. Just -- you should sit down --

Alexis: You know, I'm fine. I'm fine. I'm fine. I'm just a little hot. Do you think it's hot in here?

Sonny: Uh, no.

Alexis: All right. You know, as far as your marriage is concerned --

Sonny: Right.

Alexis: There are counselors who specialize in this sort of thing. Call one of them.

Sonny: Thank you. I appreciate your advice. All right.

Alexis: Where are you going?

Sonny: Well, you know, I think it'd be a lot easier to deal with Carly directly.

Jax: You know, whatever happened to due process?

Taggert: Spare me the constitutional lecture.

Jax: You know, this arrest is illegal. You have absolutely no reason to hold me.

Taggert: Yeah? Try accessory after the fact, aiding and abetting to avoid unlawful flight from prosecution, conspiring to assist a fugitive -- namely, Angel Sorel Ellis.

Jax: Okay, fine, have it your way. I demand to see my attorney.

Taggert: I'm not your butler, Mr. Jacks. You don't demand squat from me. But in the meantime, why don't you try remembering where your plane was headed with Angel Ellis aboard. You see, a warrant's been issued for her arrest. You're looking at a 48-hour holding period till your arraignment.

Jax: You know, not only are you violating my civil rights, you're courting a major lawsuit against this department. You know, your actions could jeopardize a major business deal I have pending. You hear me, Taggert?

[Door slams]

Jax: Guard!

Officer: What's the problem?

Jax: I'm being held without cause. And unless you report this situation to one of your superiors -- preferably the district attorney -- you could be party to a lawsuit that will take down this entire department.

Officer: Is that so?

Jax: I was unlawfully detained, denied access to legal representation by one of your officers. Now, make no mistake about it, those are civil rights violations.

Officer: Lt. Taggert gave me strict orders about you.

Jax: Lt. Taggert will lose his badge when all this is done. So unless you want to go down with him --

Officer: I'll check with the watch commander.

Gia: Oh, my God, my grandmother's antique Venetian glass! Officer, you have to help me. Please, help me. The beads are all that I have in my inheritance. Did I mention that I'm Lt. Taggert's little sister, and he is very protective and grateful when people are kind to me?

[Officer sighs]

Gia: Great. There's -- there's one over there, yeah. Thank you. There's another one. Oh, yeah, the necklace is completely worthless without all the beads. Great. Thank you so much. I won't forget this, and neither will my brother. Which reminds me -- there is some sort of emergency upstairs, and Marcus sent me down here to tell you.

Officer: Thanks.

Gia: So, how fabulous was I?

Jax: Well, tell me there was a point to all this.

Gia: Gee, don't spare the compliment.

Jax: Well, I stand corrected.

Sonny: Hi.

Leticia: Hi.

Sonny: Is Carly home?

Leticia: Oh, no, you just missed her. She just left with Michael. I'm sure she would've stuck around if she knew you were coming.

Sonny: How's Michael doing?

Leticia: He's fine. He'll be sorry he missed you.

Sonny: I'll catch up to him later. Do you know where Carly and Michael went?

Stavros: He is such an intelligent little boy, and his motor skills are amazing for a child his age.

Carly: Aw. Thanks. Sonny and I, we play a lot of games with him. And recently he just learned to ride a bike, and they say that it helps with balance and coordination.

Stavros: Michael has obviously benefited from very careful parenting.

Carly: Thank you for noticing. A lot of people wouldn't. I'm really sorry about your son. Just seeing you with Michael, I know you would've been a really wonderful father, given the chance.

Stavros: I'd like to think so. There's an awful lot I would've liked to have taught him. He's an amazing young man. He's very intelligent. He's a sportsman. He rides horses, he fences. He even plays a musical instrument.

Carly: Oh, yeah? Which one?

Stavros: Would you believe the saxophone?

Carly: I love that.

Stavros: I would've preferred he play the piano, not that -- it doesn't matter. As long as he enjoys playing it. There's an awful lot that I would like to have given him. There is so much that we can explore together. Hopefully, I'll get the chance to get him back.

Lucky: I'm going to have to go see Helena. But I'm not going to have a choice.

Nikolas: You're strong enough to resist whatever she throws at you.

Edward: Let's get down to negotiations. What do you want from me?

Skye: So glad you asked. How about a little respect? A place at the table, a smile, a kind word now and then.

Edward: You're not interested in pleasantries. Cut to the chase.

Skye: You do realize that I was kidding about dinner.

Edward: Huh. Hmm.

Skye: But I do have the mysterious Janine stashed safely away. Oh, we clicked right off the bat. She has tremendous confidence in me. She told me that. She'd pretty much do whatever I asked her to do.

Edward: State your demands, damn it!

Skye: Isn't it clear to you, Grandfather? I have what I want, thanks to your indiscretion. I'm your new best friend and you're mine. Aren't you, sweet cheeks?

Edward: Ooh. Oh, God.

Jax: Come on, come on, come on. Would you hurry up? Hurry up.

Gia: Will you stop hounding me? You're making me nervous.

Jax: Well, then give me the key. I don't get nervous. Locks are my hobby. Come on.

Gia: Look, last key, okay? You're welcome.

Taggert: Hey, hey, hey! What the hell is going on here? What do you think you're doing?

Lucky: I want to believe that you guys are right.

Laura: We are.

Nikolas: We're not giving up. Not any of us.

Lucky: Well, nobody's ever brought down the Spencers, right? Not after all those years of hiding and running. Not Faison, not Helena. And now with Nikolas we're just one stronger.

Laura: Right.

Nikolas: That's right.

Michael: I did it! I win!

Carly: Well, good for you, Michael!

Stavros: Best little star fighter in the galaxy.

Carly: Hey, Michael, did you want to play again? Hmm?

Michael: Uncle Sonny!

Sonny: Hey, Michael. Who's your new friend?

Carly: You know, I don't think that Michael and I are ready to go home.
