Previously on "General Hospital" --
Rae: No, Skye --
Skye: How about some --
Monica: Don't you -- oh!
Nikolas: I have to leave.
Gia: What is going on here?
Laura: What did you tell Serena?
Lesley Lu: That you were going to marry Scott.
Sonny: Jax is going to use you to get to me.
Carly: Nobody uses me for long.
Jax: I would like you to come with me.
A.J.: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, don't do it.
Skye: Oh, it's not for me.
Monica: You little --
Skye: A little wine with your dinner, stepmommy dearest?
Monica: You think because Alan invited your mother over here for dinner, you can throw food like a 3-year-old?
Skye: Oh, you mean that little spoonful of mashed potatoes? I'm so sorry, my hand slipped.
Monica: Aren't you a little old for tantrums?
Skye: Is there an age limit to saying that you started it?
Monica: You did everything to get a rise out of me -- asking Alan and Rae how they met, how they got together, when no one at the dinner table wanted to discuss this. But you kept pushing, you kept demanding!
Skye: Oh, when do we get to the part when you poured gravy on my blouse?
Monica: We don't because I'm not sorry about it!
Skye: Oh --
Monica: You wouldn't dare.
A.J.: Ooh. 20-1 says she does it.
Ned: I think the odds are better than that.
Rae: Skye, stop it. That's enough. If you want to go after my daughter, you're going to have to go through me, Monica.
Jax: Here we go.
Carly: Hey, where are we? What is this place?
Jax: It's a building I happen to own.
Carly: So what are we doing here?
Jax: Patience isn't your strongest suit, is it?
Carly: No. Will you turn on the lights?
Jax: Follow me. You know, when you pitched your idea of opening an upscale nightclub, this space came to mind.
Carly: Well, hurry up. I want to see it.
Jax: Here it is. Yeah. So what do you think? Is it a dream come true?
Helena: Are you here to gloat?
Nikolas: Should I be?
Helena: Oh. Luke and Stefan have already been here -- gloating. Oh, Luke was full of his usual forced witticisms and cute comments about my hair and my clothes. He called me pumpkin.
Nikolas: And -- and Stefan?
Helena: He cut off all my funds. And you'll be pleased to hear that I have been appointed a public defender. Barely past puberty and this is his first job, so unless you have something further to add, I will return to my pressed turkey dinner.
Nikolas: I didn't come here to gloat.
Helena: Then why did you come?
Luke: What makes you think that Mommy and Scotty are going to get married?
Lesley Lu: He said so. I heard him.
Luke: When was that?
Lesley Lu: The night Scott brought the pony to our house.
Laura: I thought you were asleep when Scotty came back.
Lesley Lu: I was on the stairs. Scott asked you to marry him. Are you going to marry him, Mommy?
Laura: Lulu, you shouldn't listen in on grownups' conversations.
Lesley Lu: I wasn't listening. Scott has a loud voice!
Laura: We'll talk about it more later.
Lesley Lu: He did ask you to marry him.
Leslie: So, who's ready for some pie and ice cream?
Leslie: Okay, everybody in the kitchen.
Mac: Go on, Maxie.
Maxie: It's just for the little kids.
Mac: You can help cut the pie. Come on.
Maxie: Come on, Serena.
Lucas: Want some sugar? Want some sugar?
Luke: To the soon-to-be happy couple.
Roy: Luke? It was a classic, wasn't it?
Luke: Yeah, will you tell Bobbie I had to go?
Roy: Where you going to go?
Luke: Well, have you ever tasted the pumpkin liqueur that Jake cooks this time of year? It's great.
Roy: Do you want company?
Luke: No. No, no, I'm fine. You go on in there and get your belly full of this traditional Thanksgiving. I'll see you tomorrow.
Lesley: Is it true Scott proposed?
Laura: Mother, please, not now.
Lucky: Hey, what's up?
Gia: It's Nikolas.
Lucky: Is he okay?
Gia: I'm not sure. Look, something happened tonight and I don't know where he is.
Nikolas: I -- ahem -- I came to ask you about my father.
Helena: Oh. I wondered how long it would take.
Nikolas: For what?
Helena: For you to feel the loss of your father.
Nikolas: I barely knew him, Grandmother.
Helena: Because the Spencers robbed you of that chance.
Nikolas: No, you robbed me.
Helena: I loved my son.
Nikolas: You brought him back here so you could force him to take part in your games.
Helena: No one ever forced your father to do anything he didn't want.
Nikolas: He didn't care about your vengeance, Grandmother. He wanted to be a father to me. And I guess that he thought maybe he could've changed, maybe he could've been a father, but you wouldn't let him.
Helena: Your father was everything he ever wanted to be.
Nikolas: I -- I don't -- I don't buy that, I'm sorry.
Helena: When you put on your charade of being the true Cassadine prince, I believed you. Not because I'm naive. Nikolas, I saw your father in you. Now, you can deny it if you want. But the Stavros that I knew, the Stavros that I loved is very much a part of you. You'll never be rid of him.
Nikolas: What's that supposed to mean?
Rae: You will treat my daughter with the respect she deserves.
Monica: Oh, she'll get what she deserves, all right.
Rae: You so had that coming, Monica.
Monica: Are you blind?
Alan: Put down the glass.
Skye: But Monica might want it.
Monica: She is rude and as offensive to you as she is to us.
Rae: Why are you carrying on like you're some pushy little girl trying to rule the playground?
Monica: Oh, please, stop with the psychobabble, okay?
Rae: Psychobabble? You're the spitting image of Judy "Brat" Garatski just before she was pushed into the mud pond. Now listen to me. You back off or else.
Monica: Or else what?
Skye: Here you go, Mother.
Monica: Don't you -- no, no, no, don't you try that. No, no -- don't -- hey!
A.J.: That counts.
Ned: No, no, no, no, no.
A.J.: That counts.
Ned: She spilled it accidentally.
A.J.: Oh, no.
Ned: What were those odds? 20-1?
Skye: I know the name of a really good dry cleaner --
Monica: No, don't you push me. Don't you push me.
Alan: No, no! Monica, Monica, that's it! That's it! We're out of here. Give me the bottle. Give me that bottle! Outside!
Monica: Don't you dare --
A.J.: Okay, that counted. That hit the target, buddy. Pay up.
Ned: No way, it was a fumble.
A.J.: What do you mean fumble? You can't fumble wine. She hit the target clearly.
Rae: I -- I can't believe I lost it like that.
Skye: You were wonderful.
Rae: No. No. Getting angry doesn't solve anything, Skye.
Skye: You stuck up for me. Thank you, Mother.
Monica: I am not going to be treated like this in my own house.
Alan: This is not about you. When are you going to get that?
Monica: The minute the insults and the lousy behavior stop.
Alan: What, from you or from Skye?
Monica: Oh, God, I'm so over your midlife crisis.
Alan: What are you talking about? My daughter was sold at birth to save this family from embarrassment. I'm trying to make it up to her. What is so wrong with that?
Monica: This has nothing to do with your warm fatherly feelings, Alan. You're just trying to relive your wild past. You're trying to go back to the stud you were on campus.
Alan: Don't be ridiculous.
Monica: Okay. All right. Then you tell me why you invited Rae over for Thanksgiving dinner and did not tell me.
Alan: Because I don't find anything particularly wrong with having Rae here at the occasional family function.
Monica: You loved Rae, you had a child by Rae, and you're asking me to embrace both of these women, welcome them with open arms into my house.
Alan: Well, you were able to open your heart and love Jason.
Monica: Oh -- what? What? Don't you dare compare our son -- and I'm saying our son -- because I loved him and raised him just as much as you did. Don't you compare him with this viper, this shrew of a woman that is too old to be needing anything from you except what she already has and that's a blank check.
Alan: You closed your mind to Skye, Monica. It doesn't matter what she does. You always assume the worst.
Monica: Yes, and that's exactly what she delivers.
Alan: I rest my case.
Monica: What, can you not see my side of it?
Alan: I have tried, Monica.
Monica: Well, then you better try harder, Alan, because I've had it! I'm really done with this!
Rae: "Mother" -- I like the sound of that.
Skye: I've said it before.
Rae: Well, yeah, but it always sounded like an accusation.
Skye: You know, you defended me against Monica. That was --
Rae: Well, it was wrong. I really shouldn't have done that.
Skye: But it was effective.
Rae: You know, if she had taken one more step towards me, I would've knocked her right out.
Skye: You're a lot tougher than you look, aren't you?
Rae: No. No, you know, I've studied for years crisis management and conflict resolution and -- well, I guess when push comes to shove, I went on my instincts.
Rae: I hope I haven't made a bad situation worse for you.
Skye: Oh. On the contrary, you were speaking the Quartermaine language.
Rae: Yeah, but you don't have to fall into that trap, you know.
Skye: What trap?
Rae: Oh. The infighting and the intrigue that goes on here.
Skye: Oh, please. They were sniping at each other long before I ever came along.
Rae: I know, but I really believe that there's a place for you in this family without doing that.
Skye: Ever the optimist.
Rae: I'm just concerned about you, that's all. This plan that you and A.J. have devised to get back at Edward --
Skye: Dad told you? Oh, so that's what this whole big special bonding is about.
Alan: Look, I know you have problems with Rae.
Monica: Oh. Well, that's an understatement.
Alan: You have no reason to be jealous of her.
Monica: Jealous? What, jealous of the spiky-haired tramp that just bared her true colors in front of everybody?
Alan: You were attacking her daughter.
Monica: Excuse me. Was I the only one at the dinner table that heard Skye asking for details about your affair with Rae?
Alan: Doesn't condone your behavior.
Monica: But it does condone Rae's, right?
Alan: You would've done the same thing in her position.
Monica: Oh, oh, oh. Well, hmm. Thank you for explaining that. I was having a little trouble understanding.
Alan: It's you I don't understand.
Monica: Well, maybe we're just not as simpatico as you and Rae are.
Alan: Monica --
Monica: No, okay? Just leave me alone, go to your soul mate, all right?
Alan: Please, don't do this.
Carly: It's fantastic.
Jax: Well, I'm glad you like it.
Carly: What is it? About 2,600 square feet?
Jax: It's 2,700.
Carly: Good. It's big enough, but we can still create intimate spaces.
Jax: How did you guess the size?
Carly: I took a few interior design classes. I know it kind of sounds lame, but I actually learned a lot, including the fact that I have a great eye for visualizing spaces.
Jax: Just be careful, okay?
Carly: It's been vacant a long time, huh?
Jax: Five years.
Carly: The mess, it's cosmetic. It's the structure that counts. Hey. We're going to have to check out that plumbing problem, see if that's serious. How did the inspections go when you bought this place?
Jax: Oh, this place is as solid as a rock. I read the reports myself.
Carly: Well, either a well-read homeless person was living here or --
Jax: It was a bookbinding factory.
Carly: Let's see. Oh, "Othello." I read this in high school. Desdemona, she was a pretty cool chick. "My dear Othello, the heavens forbid but that our loves and comforts should increase, even as our days do grow." Desdemona was crazy about Othello. She thought that she would be with him forever. Didn't exactly work out that way, though.
Jax: Othello destroyed her, as I recall.
Carly: You thought that I would back out as soon as I saw this place, didn't you?
Jax: It needs a hell of a lot of work.
Carly: Oh. You thought I would walk in, I would scream at the spiders here, hmm?
Jax: Something along those lines.
Carly: Something, yeah? Something along those lines? Leave? Yeah? Jax, would you just look at this place. It -- it's got huge, huge potential. Just use your imagination, okay?
Gia: Someone was saying what a monster Stavros Cassadine was, and then everyone started agreeing.
Lucky: How did Nikolas react to that?
Gia: He got very quiet and I could tell that it was bothering him and then he left in the middle of dessert.
Lucky: Did he say where he was going?
Gia: Not a word. Lucky, I am so worried about him. I mean, I know Stavros was a monster, but he is still Nikolas' father.
Lucky: Yeah, yeah. You know what? I think I know where he is. Come on.
Gia: What, are you sure you want to leave? I mean, your mom and dad look pretty upset.
Lucky: Yeah. They'll work it out. Come on, let's go.
Laura: Luke? I'm sorry.
Luke: For what?
Laura: That you had to find out about Scotty’s proposal like that.
Luke: It's not a problem.
Laura: Of course it is.
Luke: I'm not surprised, Laura, the way he's been following you around. Hey, forget about me. Go -- go on. You got people in there who want pie. You've got a daughter who wants to be a flower girl.
Laura: Don't do this, Luke, please?
Luke: Do what? Darling, I haven't said a word. I mean, I could take 1,000 cheap shots at Baldwin. He's an easy mark, but I'm not going to do it because I've moved on. I assume you have, too. Scott's warm and fuzzy. He's reliable, predictable, everything you've always wanted, so -- end of story.
Laura: Please don't walk way.
Laura: Say what you mean.
Luke: I just did.
Laura: No, you didn't. You're being glib. It's like we're talking about the weather.
Luke: Laura, what do you want from me? I agree with you. Marrying Scott’s a great idea.
Laura: Did I say that I was marrying Scott?
Luke: You telling me Lulu lied?
Laura: No, of course not.
Luke: Did he propose to you?
Laura: Yes, he did propose to me.
Luke: Did you say no?
Laura: No, I didn't.
Luke: Well, there you are.
Laura: But I didn't say yes, either.
Melissa: You know, it's just so frustrating. Anybody who knows Luke and Laura can see how connected they still are.
Roy: Yeah, they've had a remarkable past, and I've been betting that they have a future, too, but obviously there are no guarantees.
Melissa: She's in love with him, I can tell.
Roy: No, I -- I think -- I think she always will be, but it's just real complicated between the two of them.
Luke: Why beat around the bush? Why don't you just tell Baldwin what he wants to hear?
Laura: Because I haven't decided yet. Scotty's been wonderful.
Laura: I have to look at the whole picture and -- and it's pretty complicated.
Luke: No, it isn't. Not anymore. We're over, turn the page.
Laura: I see.
Luke: Why did you come out here? Why didn't you just let me leave?
Laura: I guess because I wanted to know what you think.
Luke: It doesn't matter what I think, Laura. It's not my life, it's yours.
Laura: It matters to me, Luke.
Helena: Nikolas, your father is not dead in your heart. Oh, you're not the -- not the plodding, predictable boy that Laura Spencer has tried so hard to mold you into. You can't deny your father's legacy.
Nikolas: Maybe he loved my mother because of what she was. Maybe there was some side of him that thought he could become a better person.
Helena: Oh. Nikolas, why do you fight it so hard?
Nikolas: I'm trying to make sense of it all, all right?
Helena: Then admit it. You are different from the Spencers. You have a destiny to fulfill. And you knew it when you played the prince with me. Now, it was confirmed when you finally met your father.
Nikolas: I'm happy with the life I have.
Helena: The narrow, middle-class existence that they want you to lead? Oh, Nikolas. Once you follow that path, you'll never be content. You will always know there's more for you, a side of yourself that you're denying, and you know in your soul that I'm right. You feel it as surely as you feel your heart beating.
Lucky: Don't believe a word of it, Nikolas.
Skye: I should've known.
Rae: Okay. Okay, your father did call me.
Skye: Yeah, Dad called you to come here so you could tell me how misguided I am.
Rae: Now, would that have done any good at all?
Skye: Your point?
Rae: I'm here because I missed you and because I wanted to see how you were doing. I'm also here to give you something. It's a gift from your grandmother Myrtle. She also wanted me to send her love to you. Come on. Stop looking for ulterior motives, for God's sake. Skye, I know that a lot of people have let you down in your life, but your father and I do love you.
Skye: So did Dad tell you about his handing over his E.L.Q. shares?
Skye: Is he kicking himself for doing it?
Rae: No. He asked my opinion, if I thought he did the right thing or not.
Skye: Translation -- he's kicking himself.
Rae: No. He gave you those shares. You can do what you want with them. He's just concerned that it'll build hostility between you and Edward.
Skye: Ha. Too late.
Rae: Don't you understand? You father doesn't want you to get hurt.
Skye: Oh, yeah, well, he's got it backwards there, all right? Because I'm the one who usually does the hurting.
Rae: You're so much a better person than you give yourself credit for.
Skye: Tell that to the Quartermaines.
Rae: Alan told me that you had a chance to tell Lila about Edward's indiscretions and you didn't do it. So, you see? I think there might be hope for you yet.
Monica: Was that a threat?
Alan: I'm simply asking you not to overreact.
Monica: Or what? You're going to go running into the arms of another woman?
Alan: No, Monica. I love you. I'm committed to our marriage.
Monica: And that's why you invited the mother of your illegitimate child over here for a family celebration.
Alan: Don't let this unfounded jealousy control you.
Monica: Oh, well, that's a -- that's a very handy excuse.
Alan: Just let Skye spend a little bit of time with her mother.
Monica: Alan, she's not a child, she's an adult!
Alan: Yes, and she needs her mother. And I am not going to tell Rae not to come here just to prove my loyalty to you.
Monica: I can't even believe that you believe that justification.
Rae: Alan, I hope I haven't made things worse for you.
Alan: Monica will be fine.
Rae: She appears anything but.
Alan: I'm not going to desert my daughter because of Monica. She's going to have to make peace with it no matter how uncomfortable she is.
Rae: You know what? I hope she can.
Alan: I'll tell you what, Rae. I'm more concerned about Skye, how I've handled the situation. I gave her all this E.L.Q. stock. I don't know whether she's going to be responsible with it or shoot herself in the foot.
Rae: I don't know. Time will tell, I guess.
Alan: Do you think I'm enabling her?
Rae: As a shrink, I would probably say yes.
Alan: And as a mother?
Rae: We can't change Skye, Alan. We can only love her. And it's not enough just to say the words. And you put your money where your mouth is, so to speak. You've demonstrated it and I can see that it has a profound effect on her. And I think she's beginning to -- to see that a parent can have great faith in a child and, I don't know, maybe one day she'll have faith in herself. So as a mother, I thank you.
Alan: And as her father, I'll always be there for her.
A.J.: Well, the dining room no longer looks like a cyclone hit it. How you doing?
Skye: Why do I always feel like a kid when I'm with her?
A.J.: I know the feeling.
Skye: Why can't I handle it better?
A.J.: Well, when you figure it out, would you let me know?
Skye: Speaking of dysfunctional family members, how's Edward?
A.J.: Oh. Well, Ned's still trying to calm him down. Grandfather's freaking out over the fact that we actually got the turkey to the table this year and still called for pizza.
Skye: Well, I didn't want to break with tradition.
A.J.: There's the Skye I know and love.
Skye: Well, I guess every disastrous Thanksgiving has a silver lining, right?
A.J.: For some of us. Then there are hopeless cases like Carly. Gee, I wonder how she's doing with her new pal Jax.
Jax: Well, you have an ambitious vision.
Carly: So, what do you think?
Jax: It's one thing to start up a new enterprise. The question is, do you have the perseverance to see it through?
Carly: Oh, I have.
Jax: How do I know that?
Carly: Look, when I want something, I get it, and usually I go about it the wrong way by lying and scheming. But this time I want to do it right. I want to say what I want and I want to go after it. Deception, it was great, but it wasn't all mine. Sonny was my safety net and then he sold me out to Laura. Look, I -- I want to do this right this time. I want to show what I can do. It's the perfect time, Jax, the perfect place, and perfect partner. I want to make this place a runaway success, and all the people that thought I was going to fail are going to have to come here because it is going to be the place to be.
Jax: This is a big job.
Carly: Yes, and I will work my butt off, Jax. I will put every ounce of blood, sweat, and tears into this place. So what do you say? Have we got a deal?
Helena: Well, you see? Even your friends knew you'd come to see me.
Gia: Don't listen to her, Nikolas.
Lucky: You're out of tricks, Helena. It's over.
Gia: You know, if you're deluded enough to still believe that your hoodoo still works, you're going to have to try it out on the inmates upstate.
Helena: Nikolas came to see me of his own free will.
Gia: Nikolas has been onto you from the very start. You have no hold on him. You never have.
Helena: Tell them. Tell them you're a Cassadine.
Maxie: Where's Lucky?
Mac: He left with a friend.
Maxie: Gosh, we were having such a good time in there, and you have to shove me off to the kitchen for ice cream like I'm some 10-year-old. Lucky must think I'm such a geek.
Felicia: He doesn't think you're a geek, honey.
Maxie: I'm practically a grownup, not that anyone notices.
Mac: Is that what this tattoo is all about?
Maxie: Well, it's my body, and I don't want to look like a little kid.
Felicia: To whom? Lucky? He's a lot older than you are.
Maxie: Well, girls mature faster. You even said so yourself.
Mac: He's got a girlfriend, Maxie.
Felicia: He's been with Elizabeth for many years.
Maxie: Well, they could break up someday. Lots of people do, even when they do love each other.
Felicia: Sometimes when you have feelings for someone, it's not meant to be because their heart is with somebody else. That doesn't mean that you can't be friends with them. But if you want more than that, you're just going to wind up getting -- what?
Maxie: Well, how do you know?
Felicia: I know. I just know.
Laura: I care what you think.
Luke: Well, don't worry. I'm not going to try to crash the wedding or make any trouble.
Laura: That's not what I'm asking.
Luke: Look, if you are expecting me to try to stop you, don't count on that, either, because I won’t.
Laura: I didn't think that you would.
Luke: Well, I guess there's nothing left to say.
Laura: Well, yes, there is. Your opinion matters to me. It just always will.
Luke: Look, darling, if you want something from me, please ask. I'm dizzy from trying to guess what it is.
Laura: I don't know, I guess it's too much to ask for your blessing.
Luke: Yes, it is. But I know Baldwin loves you, and he won't hurt you. He'll try to be good to you.
Laura: Yes, he would.
Luke: Oh, hell, couldn't you have gone with somebody else? Anybody else? Mac. Mac -- you had a little spark with Mac for a while. Why didn't you follow that -- or Roy? Roy's an old friend. He really likes you. And I could even get behind that. We could -- we could live together, all of us. A big commune kind of thing.
Laura: Well, why don't I just go for the mailman? He's always had a crush on me.
Luke: He came on to me last week.
Laura: Stop it. Please. I really want you to be serious.
Luke: I'm sorry, darling, you're asking for something I just can't give.
Laura: Maybe I am.
Luke: So where does that leave us?
Laura: I guess back where we started. How do you feel about -- how do you feel about me marrying anyone?
Carly: I've blown it. I can tell by your face.
Jax: On the contrary. I think you'd be an excellent investment. You know, bars, restaurants, and clubs are usually high-risk ventures. But that's not a negative for me.
Carly: It won't be a risk. I'll succeed.
Jax: I'm betting you will. This clearly isn't a joke for you. It's a passion.
Carly: So you're saying?
Jax: We have a deal. It's customary to shake on it.
Carly: You won't regret this, Jax.
Jax: I'm betting I won’t. But you're going to have to do a little more than put on a show. I'd like to see some figures next week.
Carly: I will get right on that.
Jax: Thanks for the tour.
Skye: Mr. Jacks can do whatever he wants with Carly as long as he stays committed to our plan.
A.J.: Well, I wouldn't count on that.
Skye: Oh, yeah?
Skye: We'll see, after I put the full-court press on him.
A.J.: What? What? How?
Skye: I have my ways.
Alan: Skye, I just wanted to tell you your mother's getting ready to go home.
A.J.: To be continued.
Skye: Hey, I'm -- I'm sorry about ruining dinner.
Alan: It wasn't just you. We all did our fair share.
Skye: Yeah. I'm the one who got the ball rolling.
Alan: So the dinner got ruined. Who cares? What I care about is that you had a good visit with your mother.
Skye: It was probably the best present you could've given me.
Rae: Oh, A.J. Good. Maybe we could have a moment alone, all right?
A.J.: Yeah, well, not quite the holiday meal you expected, right?
Rae: I have learned never to be surprised at anything that happens in this house.
A.J.: Well, that is very wise.
Rae: I actually wanted to thank you for being so kind to my daughter.
A.J.: We understand each other.
Rae: Well, it would seem she cares a lot about you.
A.J.: The feeling is mutual.
Rae: Oh. Excuse me. Alan? I -- I just -- I want to say thank you for everything.
Alan: It was my pleasure.
Skye: I'm really glad you came. I hope that maybe you can visit again soon?
Rae: I would -- I would really like that.
Skye: Who knows? Maybe -- maybe Christmas?
Alan: Christmas, that's a great idea.
Rae: I would -- I would love that.
Nikolas: Good-bye, Grandmother. Enjoy your turkey.
Helena: Our discussion's not over.
Nikolas: Yes, it is.
Helena: I love you, Nikolas. And should you change your mind, you're always welcome to come back and see me.
Nikolas: Well, you're where you belong, justice has been served. There's really nothing more to say.
Gia: Let's go.
Lucky: You know she's feeding you a load of crock! You're not a Cassadine. Not like she means. Your family's us, Alexis, and Stefan. That's the bottom line.
Gia: You're free, Nikolas. Helena and Stavros are gone forever.
Nikolas: I know. I know.
Luke: God, you're an extraordinary woman.
Luke: And the truth is it makes me crazy to think of you marrying anyone.
Luke: But you're not mine anymore. You don't need me. You don't really need anybody. You're your own person. So if you decide to spend the rest of your life with someone, I will do what I can to be happy for you. I will.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
A.J.: I didn't realize you knew mike Corbin.
Skye: Are you all right?
Alan: No, and neither are you.
Scott: Would you come bail us out?
