>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Skye: You've already proved that you're a decent guy.
Jax: Oh, so you don't want my E.L.Q. proxy?
Skye: Yeah, I do.
Luke: Where's Baldwin?
Lesley: Did you tell him about Scotty?
Laura: Why should I tell him about Scotty? I don't answer to him.
Bobbie: Laura told him no. She turned him down.
Carly: I don't think I will ever stop loving Sonny.
Laura: That's a good start.
Luke: Hi. You busy?
Laura: What are you doing here?
Luke: I'm selling magazine subscriptions door to door. Hello, it's me, father of two of your kids. Do I need an I.D.?
Laura: Well, actually, I am busy, and if you've come to apologize, I'll make time for that, but if you've come to continue with your criticism of Scotty and me, I'm not interested.
Luke: Well, actually, it's no on both counts.
Laura: Then why are you here?
Man: Sure, baby. Oh, me, too. All I've been thinking about is you, you. Well, I think I can get away tonight. I'll come at your place. Oh, me, too, baby. Ooh.
Scott: All right, that's enough. Nobody wants to hear --
Man: Hang on, hang on -- what are you doing? What are you doing? Oh!
Scott: Don't come back here with that silly love talk. Crazy --
Felicia: What did you just do?
Scott: That's a good question.
Skye: If you told me last week that I'd be having breakfast fresh from the market in New Orleans --
Jax: Well, you should try it more often.
Skye: Oh, follow your example?
Jax: I must have a New Orleans breakfast at least six or seven times a year.
Skye: Well, then, you have to put me down for the next one. I'd love to experience another. That trip was the best time that I've had in, well, much too long.
Jax: Well, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Unfortunately, all good times must come to an end. I have to go.
Skye: Oh. Really? It's almost lunchtime. Can't you stay and eat with me? I'd really love to repay you for breakfast.
Jax: I would like to, if only to see the look on Edwardís face eating at his table, but I have a meeting to get to at a warehouse down on Wharf and Fifth. So, thanks for the offer. I had a good time.
Skye: Oh, Jax, thank you.
Jax: Well, you're welcome.
Skye: I mean for more than breakfast. I really enjoyed the flight and, well, for the dress -- thanks for that and for dinner last night.
Jax: It was my pleasure. Now you've thanked me enough.
Skye: No, not quite. Thank you for the temporary proxy.
Jax: It was my pleasure. I enjoyed the trip.
Edward: Oh, you're back. I hoped you'd be gone for good. But here you are, plotting yet again with another interloper to bring down your family name, hmm?
Man's voice: Ms. Corinthos, Asher Wilding. I've heard from your husband's lawyer, Alexis Davis. She's requested a meeting to discuss the details of your husband's adoption of Michael and to expedite your divorce proceedings. Ms. Davis advises that her client would like to settle all pending matters as soon as possible, preferably before the Christmas holidays.
Carly: Yeah, Alexis. Hmm.
Asher's voice: In any event, call me as soon as you get this --
Carly: Thank you. Sure. Of course I will, as soon as I possibly can. Anything that Ms. Davis wants. You know, Alexis, ask Santa for something else because you don't get my husband for Christmas.
Sonny: What are you doing?
Alexis: I'm doing what you pay me to do.
Sonny: Well, you -- you're already double billing me on this trip. You don't have to convince me, you know, every -- every second that you're working hard here. You understand what I'm saying?
Alexis: I'm going over the contracts.
Alexis: I have to go over the contracts before you sign them tomorrow. I also want to go over the contract rider regarding that section that we talked about because --
Sonny: I like the rider the way it is.
Alexis: Well, that's why I'm the attorney and you're not -- because I can understand how the language needs to be in the legal document.
Sonny: You know what? It's a beautiful day and I don't want to stay in here and go over the fine points of a labor contract.
Alexis: Oh. Donít.
Alexis: You should go out. Absolutely, you should go out and enjoy yourself. I'm going to just -- I'll order room service because I need to go over these contracts --
Alexis: Before -- like I said, before you sign them tomorrow, and then I need to -- to go over some appellate briefs and then I need some research on-line that I've been meaning to do and I don't know if I mentioned this to you, but I am giving a speech for the bar association, so I'm going to work on that.
Sonny: Yeah, right. Is this your version of penance?
Sonny: Yeah, what the nuns used to make me do. And I don't even have to ask what sin you're atoning for because I already know.
Alexis: You do?
Sonny: Yeah -- me.
Alexis: I don't remember committing a sin, certainly not with you.
Sonny: I was there, remember?
Alexis: Well, evidently, I wasn't -- if there were any transgressions involved.
Sonny: Stefan called and told you he was throwing an engagement party for Nikolas. He expected you to be there, but you had to turn him down.
Alexis: And why are you suddenly so sensitive to Stefan's expectations?
Sonny: Oh, I don't care about Stefan or the rest of the Cassadines, but I know what family means to you and how, you know, you feel about not being there with your nephew to celebrate his engagement party. If you weren't on retainer right now, you'd be in Port Charles, but you didn't go because I asked you to stay.
Alexis: I'm not understanding where this sin thing comes in.
Sonny: Okay. You know what? You've worked very hard today. We both did. But instead of going out, right, and relaxing, you're going to lock yourself up with your books and your room service. You want to know why?
Sonny: I'll tell you why -- because you feel guilty about not being with your family, so you're going to figure out a way to suffer.
Alexis: Has anyone ever discussed the concept of projecting with you? It means ascribing your feelings and your motives to someone totally uninvolved?
Sonny: Why would I feel guilty about missing Nikolas' engagement party when I wasn't even invited?
Alexis: I was.
Alexis: And I -- I declined the invitation because I had a prior professional commitment. It was a straightforward scheduling conflict that I resolved by simply prioritizing. Consequently, I am at peace with this decision. I'm sorry that I missed Nikolas' engagement party, but it's not a sin and I certainly don't feel guilty about it.
Sonny: Then why are you working?
Alexis: I told you -- I have things that I have to do.
Sonny: Well, I'm your employer. I told you to take the night off.
Alexis: You can't do that.
Sonny: And one thing is -- you know what? You overlooked a major obstacle when you sentenced yourself to a night of work.
Alexis: Not that your analysis is anywhere near accurate, but for the sake of argument, what would that major obstacle be?
Sonny: Me again.
Edward: All right, out with it, Jax. What underhanded scheme has this ingrate talked you into, huh?
Jax: If Skye were conspiring against you, it would only be what you deserve.
Edward: That's nonsense.
Jax: You're right, you're right. There is no punishment harsh enough for a man who would sell out his own grandchild unless it's being sold out himself. You call me if you need me anytime, for anything.
Edward: You mark my words, Skye. Whatever it is that you are doing with that swindler, you won't get away with it.
Skye: Grandfather, at the moment, the only thing that I'm trying to get away with is lunch. Now, it's much too beautiful a day for us to stand around screaming at each other, so why don't we just sit down, eat, and try to have a normal, civilized conversation? And who knows? Maybe even a miracle will happen -- maybe we'll actually try to find something we like about each other, hmm?
Edward: My God, what has that man done to you?
Luke: You mind if I come in? It's a little cold out here.
Laura: Okay. Just don't get too comfortable, okay? I took the afternoon off to try to get this place ready for the holidays and I've got a lot of shopping to do, so let's just get to the point.
Luke: Okay, the point. I saw this thing that I thought maybe I'd get Lulu for Christmas. It's a kind of computer for children called a V-Track 7000.
Laura: Yeah, I know it. They're actually selling it at the computer outlet downtown.
Luke: Yeah, that's where I saw it. And it's supposed to help kids with math, but I wasn't sure if it was too advanced for her.
Laura: It's fine. Anything else?
Luke: All right, skip the Christmas mumbo-jumbo. I -- I'm here to see if you're all right.
Laura: And why wouldn't I be?
Luke: Well, I picked up on something on the docks last night.
Laura: Could that be my anger, maybe, at you insinuating that I would marry a man for his money?
Luke: Uh -- no, it was something -- something else. Um -- it was like, maybe, I don't know -- somebody had disappointed you.
Laura: Like who?
Luke: Well, I'm not sure. Somebody important to you, I think. Maybe one of the kids. Or your mother. Scott?
Laura: Scott. Okay, so now we're back to that again, that same old drill.
Luke: No, no, it's not the same old drill. It's -- it's -- it -- well, something's changed. Hasn't it?
Laura: You found out that I turned him down. Right?
Carly: Ah! Damn!
Jax: Nice day?
Carly: Yes. It's a lovely, wonderful, heartwarming -- it's a greeting card kind of a day, yes, because Alexis Davis has put me on her Christmas list. Isn't that sweet? She has gone to lots of trouble to get me a lovely present and she's probably wrapping it as we speak.
Carly: My divorce. And with any luck, I will have it just in time to put it under my Christmas tree. You know, Alexis has a very tight schedule right now with the holidays and all and she's trying to clear off her desk of all the loose odds and ends, you know? Yeah, she's got a very important project coming up which is called slithering into Sonny's bed and preferably before Christmas. I swear that conceited, neurotic goody two-shoes, I swear what I will --
Jax: You know what? Carly, Alexis is not the problem here. You're angry because of Sonny.
Sonny: I'm not only your employer, I'm also your host. It's up to me to see that you have a good time.
Alexis: This is it. This is very intellectually stimulating.
Sonny: Well, you know, you need -- you need stimulation in other areas, too.
Alexis: You never objected to my spending an evening doing legal work with you before, so why are you calling my top-of-the-scale billable hours "penance"?
Sonny: Oh, no, no, you earned your pay. You know, you've always come, you know, through for me no matter what I throw at you.
Alexis: Maybe you're not as challenging a client as you think.
Sonny: How many times have I dragged you out of bed in the middle of the night to get me out of jail?
Alexis: A few.
Sonny: How many times have you canceled your own plans to take care of the problems of me, Jason, or Zander?
Alexis: More than a few.
Sonny: How many times have you taken grief from the people you care about over representing me?
Alexis: Maybe you're right. Maybe I should raise my hourly rates.
Sonny: Let me tell you something. You -- Alexis, I don't have many friends. You've been more than a friend to me. You listen. You're concerned. You let me -- you let me talk about my screwed-up personal life and my marriage, right?
Alexis: You've certainly heard more than you want about mine.
Sonny: Yeah, but I just didn't live out the nightmare that you did and, you know, after everything that's happened, you could be celebrating with the people you love or toasting with Gia and Nikolas, but instead you're going to be here with your room service and your books. I can't have that. It's not right. I believe a debt should be honored, a favor returned. I'm in your debt, and, you know, it would just -- it would mean a lot to me if you let me take you out tonight.
Alexis: You're under no obligation.
Sonny: Didn't you promise that you were going to enjoy yourself? What kind of friend would I be if I didn't help you keep that promise? Besides, you know, I could -- I could use a little fun, too. So why don't we play some roulette, shoot some craps --
Alexis: Oh, I don't know how to gamble.
Sonny: Oh, I can teach you, you know, tonight. This stuff will be here tomorrow.
Alexis: Okay. Sure, I can leave my work and go out tonight with you and gamble.
Felicia: Thank you very much.
Scott: You're welcome.
Felicia: You ruined my stakeout.
Scott: Oh -- the coffee's cold, if that's a consolation.
Felicia: I have been tailing that guy on the cell phone for weeks. His wife hired me to collect evidence that he was having an affair. He was setting up a rendezvous. I almost had him busted, and you just went and wrecked the whole thing!
Scott: Well, how am I supposed to know you're over there hiding behind the funny papers? How am I supposed to know what's going on any -- would a bowl of chili make up for anything?
Felicia: Okay. What's wrong with you?
Luke: Okay. Bobbie told me that you turned Scott down.
Laura: Well, remind me to thank her. I'm sure that's the only reason you're not pummeling me with Scott putdowns at the moment.
Luke: Well, look, Laura, I know it's none of my business, but I -- I'd really like to know why you said no.
Laura: You don't like him. He doesn't like you. And I'm not marrying him. Why is why important to you?
Laura: Why do you care what made me decide not to marry Scott?
Luke: You used to be able to read my mind.
Laura: And you used to be able to read mine.
Luke: Maybe I've lost that ability. Or maybe it's temporarily out of order, but I -- I'd like to know what the problem between you and Scott is.
Luke: Well, because I was under the impression that you had decided to try to recapture whatever it is that the two of you had before I came along, and then he asked you to marry him, and you said no, so naturally I'm curious why. Did he do something? Did he disappoint you or hurt you?
Laura: No, he didnít. He was perfect.
Luke: Really? Wow -- perfect. I thought that's what you wanted -- somebody who was dependable, predictable.
Laura: What is your objective here?
Luke: Laura, just tell me, please.
Jax: The way you're feeling has nothing to do with Alexis.
Carly: Of course you would defend her.
Jax: Alexis is beside the point. The reason your life is upside down is thanks to Sonny. He promised to love you for the rest of his life and then when the going got tough, he bailed out. He makes impossible demands and sets you up to fail. And then when you do, you're out.
Carly: Hmm. I had no idea you were so sympathetic to me.
Jax: Well, you don't even deserve the way Sonny treats you.
Carly: Oh, but how can you be so sure?
Jax: Sonny's clearing his desk for his own agenda. Now, whatever unhappy woman happens to be next in line to have her life ruined, Sonny will pull her in and tell her that she's the only woman that can save him, and then when he's had enough, he'll dump her. You know, you can stop me when any of this starts to sound familiar.
Carly: Well, none of it does because Sonny married me so he could stay out of jail, and not only did he tell me he didn't want me to save him, he basically told me to leave him alone.
Jax: Then the breakup's your fault. You couldn't give him what he needed. You couldn't give Sonny what he wanted. Come on, Carly, can't you see? Sonny uses women. He loves to destroy them. Don't let him do that to you. You're on the verge of a new life. Don't let Sonny ruin that before it begins.
Carly: My God -- you really do hate him, even more than I thought.
Alexis: Dull. Duller. Dullest.
[Knock on door]
Maid: Buenas tardes.
Alexis: Oh, thank you so much.
Alexis: I appreciate the towels. Thank you. Oh, whoa, hey, whoa, whoa. Would you come here just for a second? I -- I just need a little advice if you don't mind. I'm sorry. What do you think of this?
Alexis: Oh, exactly. I -- I agree with you. What about this one? Even worse?
Maid: Que usted desea el valet o --
Maid: O la limpieza servicio?
Alexis: I know, I agree. It's -- it's dull, it's unimaginative, and it's geriatric.
Maid: Que lleve yo para sera planche o limpieza? Si?
Alexis: Right. Oh, absolutely. I mean, who said that I should dress like a corporate nun, right?
Alexis: You don't understand anything I'm saying, do you?
Maid: Si. No English.
Alexis: Oh. I'll teach you. I am a maniac.
Maid: Ah, maniaca.
Maid: Si. Yo dije que si.
Alexis: Yeah, see? You had no trouble understanding that at all, did you? Listen, I'm sure you have something else to do, something more important than talking with me.
Alexis: I appreciate it. I have a little bit of an image problem and -- and quite frankly, you can't help me with it.
Maid: Si, como no.
Alexis: Only I can.
Edward: I have been wrong.
Skye: This is news?
Edward: You know, you are not the vengeful shrew that you say you are. I can see that now. All you really need is to be appreciated, even if, as is the case with Jax, that that warmth and respect are just a calculated trap.
Skye: You mean like what you're trying to do to me now?
Edward: Jax is a stranger, but we are family.
Skye: Oh. That's funny because 10 minutes ago, you were just praying that I was gone for good.
Edward: Oh. But in those 10 minutes, I had a real revelation. See, I had turned you into an enemy because I had denied you the one thing that you crave, which is -- which is absolute acceptance. And you deserve to be accepted.
Skye: Since when?
Edward: Well, you see, perhaps I have overreacted to some of your behavior in the past, calling you cold and -- and greedy, but let's not go there, shall we? Let's just stick to the matter at hand, which is Jax. You see, he -- he plied you with false praise and assurances -- and happily, though, he has brought out a radiance in you that I've never seen before. Unhappily, though, it isn't even remotely sincere. You see, Jax uses charm and flattery as weapons. Don't be fooled. Whatever it is that Jax is offering, he cannot be believed.
Skye: But you can?
Edward: Of course I can, Skye. You have to trust me. Jax is going to use you to pry away all of this family's assets and when he's through, we will have nothing. He had his eye on our holdings once before, and he nearly robbed us blind. That's why we have to stick together in this now and put aside all these old past grudges. It's the only way that we are going to protect ourselves from interlopers like Jax.
Skye: Oh, and Sonny? Or is he not interloping?
Edward: Now, look, the only reason that I turned to Corinthos was because I didn't think I could count on my own grandchildren. Now, perhaps if -- if you and I could -- could reach a new understanding --
A.J.: Skye? Don't shake his hand. He'll steal your watch. You're not buying any of this?
Skye: Buying it? Of course I'm not buying it. I was enjoying it, though. That was a wonderful performance, Grandfather -- very convincing but just this short of a sell. But since you did try so hard, I thought I'd be honest with you. See, we still have the upper hand. We still have Janine. And there's plenty more where that came from, so please don't worry about my broken heart. Worry about yours and Lilaís. See, your marriage is going to be in deep trouble if you don't end this alliance with Sonny and fork over more shares of E.L.Q.
Edward: Hmm. How truly disheartening. If only you were that -- that sensitive creature that I just described.
Skye: A.J., we are in a stronger position than we've ever been in.
A.J.: Yeah -- ahem. I hate to burst your bubble, Skye, but we lost our ace in the hole -- Janine.
Skye: What do you mean we lost Janine?
A.J.: Okay, okay, I lost Janine.
Skye: I was gone 24 hours. You couldn't watch her for that long?
A.J.: I'm only one man against Sonny's entire organization. Look, it's not as if I'm giving up. I will find her and -- and get her back where we need her.
Skye: Yeah, well, you better because Janine is very important to this whole thing.
A.J.: You don't think I know that?
Skye: Well, fortunately for us, even without Janine, we have an edge.
A.J.: Since when?
Skye: Well, thanks to some quick thinking and some hard -- though not entirely unpleasant -- work, your sister was able to get Jax's proxy for the next E.L.Q. board meeting, which means that we can put pressure on Sonny, maybe even work on Grandfather's position.
A.J.: Time out. How did you get Jax to sign over his proxy?
Skye: All I had to do was ask.
A.J.: I find that hard to believe.
Skye: Okay, maybe I had to do a little more than ask.
A.J.: How "little"?
Skye: I just stowed away on Jax's jet.
Skye: And we ended up in a place called Gulleysville, Louisiana, which was unbearable at first but did turn out to be a lot better than I thought, and suffice it to say, Jax did turn out to be the most perfect gentleman.
A.J.: Oh, this is exactly what I was afraid of. I warned you months ago, Skye.
Skye: Warned me about what?
A.J.: About Jax. Look, he doesn't just hand over his proxy, okay? He's setting you up.
Skye: Oh, give me a little more credit than that.
A.J.: You don't know this guy. He's ruthless and he's a heartbreaker. Skye, do you really think he cares about you? I'm sorry, but he's using you.
Skye: Oh, don't be ridiculous. Why would Jax be using me? He has everything he needs. He's not using me for my money or for my heart or anything else at all. You're being overprotective and that's very sweet, but come on, you're starting to sound like grandfather. Believe it or not, there really are some good people in the world and Jax is just one of them.
A.J.: No, he's not. Oh.
Jax: You know, I didn't come here to discuss Sonny.
Carly: So don't.
Jax: Well, you're the one forcing the issue. You seem to be having some kind of Sonny relapse. It concerns me -- we're partners.
Carly: Okay, well, you know what? You are worried about nothing.
Jax: Well, I'm not so sure. You know, I thought you had what it took to take control of your life, to make something of this place, to put it on the map. But you seem to be falling back into the same old destructive pattern. You know, you can sabotage something that could be successful if you look back at what was miserable instead of looking ahead at something that could be great. Do you want to make this the most successful, hottest nightclub on the eastern seaboard or not?
Carly: You know that I do.
Jax: Well, good. Step one -- before you pick out the decor or a name or do the budget, you need to get Sonny out of your life.
Carly: Why are you doing this, Jax? Why are you so concerned all of a sudden?
Jax: Because we're partners, that's why.
Carly: And that's all?
Jax: I already told you -- any woman trying to get away from Sonny Corinthos is a cause worth taking up. It's up to you, Carly. Now, you can blow this, waste years of your life, or you can let it go. It's up to you.
Scott: I don't get it.
Felicia: Get what?
Scott: I just don't get it with Laura, you know? When she's -- when she's with me, right, she's happy. She's having a good time. Life is great. So why would she want to go back with her ex-husband?
Felicia: I don't know. I don't know those things.
Scott: Oh, come on, Felicia. We both know that Luke is no damn good.
Felicia: Laura needed Luke for some time, for a long time. Maybe she still needs him. You can't pass judgment on that, on who she should love and who she shouldn't love.
Scott: She should love me because I make her happy. At least I think I do.
Felicia: You're a wonderful guy. You're not the right wonderful guy, but you are a wonderful guy.
Laura: What is it that you want me to say?
Luke: Well, I'm not trying to get you to say anything. I'm trying to have a conversation. What is it you want?
Laura: I don't know. I want a lot of things, I guess. World peace, a cure for aids, the perfect Christmas goose recipe -- stop me if I say anything that interests you.
Luke: You. You interest me. And you seem -- I don't know. You -- you -- is there anything I can do?
Laura: Like what?
Luke: Darling, I cannot fill in all these blanks.
Laura: Well, I didn't ask you to. Did I? I mean, you said yourself -- I don't need rescuing anymore, right?
Luke: Well, I didn't say you needed rescuing.
Laura: I know you didnít. I'm clarifying that point.
Luke: Oh, boy. Oh, boy, oh, boy, oh, boy.
Scott: You see, Felicia, this Laura thing, it's very, very tricky because, you know, the fact that I was just dumped by her -- you know, I've been in love with her since I was a kid, and also that she's going to go back to the guy that stole her from me in the first place.
Felicia: Believe me, I know. I've spent way too many sleepless nights wondering why I couldn't hang on to the person that I cared about. And the bottom line is it's either right or it's not right.
Scott: Well, I thought it was right, otherwise I wouldn't have opened up this whole can of peas.
Felicia: Well, you can wish and you can hope until you're blue in the face, but you can't make someone feel for you the way you feel for them when they donít. That's human nature. You're going to get hurt. So you go ahead and you get hurt, and then you're going to get over it.
Felicia: In the future, will you stay out of my stakeouts?
Scott: How about I buy you a steak dinner?
Felicia: No. You have something going for you right now, did you know that?
Scott: What's that?
Felicia: You have a free piece of pie.
Scott: Well, thank you.
Felicia: Take care.
Scott: See you later.
Laura: So, now that we have cleared that up --
Luke: I can go, right?
Laura: Unless there is something else you'd like to say.
Luke: Nothing I can think of. Okay. Good luck with this Christmas thing.
Jax: Focus on the task at hand -- your goals, your plans. Think about what we talked about last week -- this place, you know, the dance floor filled with beautiful people having a good time. You could be one of them. You've got your dream and that's important. You got your life back from Sonny and that's important. You know, in fact, forget I even mentioned Sonny because I think we should keep him out of this.
Jax: So why don't you let me spin you around on the dance floor while you tell me how rich you're going to make me?
Carly: Ooh, very rich. Why not? Ooh.
Sonny: Alexis? Alexis?
Sonny: Yeah, this is Mr. Corinthos. Can I speak to Armando? Armando, yeah, hi. Listen, I'm bringing a guest to the V.I.P. room tonight. I want her to enjoy herself. Yeah. Let her win a few games, build her confidence, and bill it on my account. Thanks. Where have you been?
Alexis: You look good.
Sonny: Yeah? Well, it's black tie required after 6:00. You're going to need a dress.
Alexis: Oh, I -- I went down to the boutique and I bought something and it's just being pressed.
Sonny: So you really don't need to do anything until the dress gets here, am I right?
Alexis: I guess not.
Sonny: Come check out the view.
Sonny: Okay, what you got to do now, okay? You got to look at the water, hear the waves, and relax.
Alexis: I can't believe it's snowing in Port Charles right now.
Sonny: I hate snow.
Sonny: I used to sort papers for pocket money. I used to work for this little guy named Mr. Meyers. He hated working in the morning. He had a paper stand, so I had to get up and work from 5:00 to 8:00. You know, I'd -- I'd see the cars pass and the businesspeople on their way to Manhattan. They'd stop and I'd give them their -- their paper. The gutters were full of slush, so my feet, you know, my shoes, they'd get all soaked, but it didn't matter because I got better tips that way. And every so often, a limo would pull up and I'd -- I'd never see the passenger. Only the -- the driver, but I knew who it was, everybody did. The man was respected. He controlled the neighborhood. So I'd bring the paper to the driver and he'd -- he'd tip me a buck. And I'd stand there in the -- in the slush and watch the limo just pull away, and I promised myself that one day I'd be riding in the back. I'd be so important, I wouldn't have to buy my own paper, and so powerful, I wouldn't -- I would never have to see snow if I didn't want to. And the first chance I got, I -- I bought a casino down here. And now I get the paper delivered every morning. I never even see who drops it off.
Alexis: It's a beautiful view.
Sonny: Worth what I paid for?
Alexis: I doubt it.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Zander: If something's going on with Emily, I need to know.
Carly: Who's there?
Sonny: Alexis, you look beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
Stefan: Gia will bring us into the future as my nephew's bride.
