General Hospital Transcript Thursday 12/6/01
>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Stefan: Well, the party is for both you and Nikolas. You're as much a part of it as anyone.
Helena: You are different from the Spencers. You have a destiny to fulfill.
Sonny: It would mean a lot to me if you'd let me take you out tonight.
Jax: Tell me how rich you're going to make me.
Carly: Ooh, very rich. Why not?
Carly: Okay, and maybe Thursday night we could do a little fusion and --
Jax: What about jazz? Do you have a jazz night?
Cay: How about on Friday! Oh -- hey!
Jax: Friday sounds good.
Carly: Whoo. Thank you.
Carly: You know, the dance was fun, but I can dance with anyone. So I was thanking you for reminding me of what I really want.
Jax: It's my pleasure.
Carly: You actually make all this seem real.
Jax: It's as real as you want it to be.
Carly: Because anything's possible, right?
Jax: As long as you keep your eye on the prize and remember that the only prize that counts is you.
Carly: Yeah, I'll remember.
Carly: Who's there?
A.J.: It's me, A.J. Oh, it's too bad. You're about to miss the performance of a lifetime. You're not going to believe who's at Kelly’s -- Sonny's latest protégé. By the time I'm finished with this kid, he's going to be glad to tell me where Sonny's got Janine stashed. Hey, you can call me back later for an update, all right? Whoa.
Zander: Hey, watch where you're going.
A.J.: Sorry, man. I -- I didn't see you.
Zander: What's the matter with you?
A.J.: Some things on my mind. Emily for one, you know?
Zander: Emily, what's wrong with her? What's going on?
Kristina: It's a fairyland.
Stefan: And it's all yours.
Kristina: I've -- I've seen this piece before.
Stefan: Have you?
Stefan: Well, our father recovered both of those in an underwater dig off Corfu.
Kristina: It's Fourth century B.C.?
Stefan: Fifth, but you're close. I didn't know you were an art historian along with everything else.
Kristina: I was desperate to declare a major in college, so -- I can't believe that our father was an explorer.
Stefan: Well, Mikkos had his good points. You and Alexis are living proof of that.
Kristina: Oh. How did you know that I always wanted a doting big brother to pay me lots and lots of compliments?
Nikolas: Uncle, here's where you've been hiding. Hello, Kristina.
Gia: Hi, Stefan.
Kristina: Is something wrong?
Gia: Well, hello -- pants? I mean, what are we thinking? This is my engagement party. I'm going to have to ask you to go change that outfit.
Lucky: Well, I'm in favor. Can I give you a hand?
Sonny: Alexis, you ready yet?
Alexis: Okay, let's go.
Sonny: Will you give me a minute? I just -- I want to look at you.
Alexis: Why? Is this ridiculous?
Sonny: Did I say that?
Alexis: Well, you're smiling.
Sonny: Well, I'm smiling because I'm admiring the way you look. Relax.
Alexis: This is the only thing they had in the boutique in my size, so I -- it's just I don't -- do you think it's too much?
Sonny: From where I'm standing, you look like a woman who's ready to enjoy herself.
Alexis: You said to wear something not so buttoned up --
Alexis: So, as you can see, this has absolutely no buttons at all, which is why it took me so long to get into it because it didn't come with instructions. You know, I can take it back because I have the receipt.
Sonny: Alexis, you look beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.
Alexis: I knew I shouldn't have listened to you.
Sonny: No, what's -- the dress is spectacular. All you got to do is get used to it. It's --
Alexis: This coming from a man that used to run a strip club?
Sonny: You're the one who picked it out. All I did is tell you to -- you know, that I approve.
Alexis: Which way to the casino?
Sonny: You know what? We probably shouldn't go.
Alexis: Yeah, you're right. We probably shouldn't go.
Sonny: You know why? Because all the guys are going to be checking you out, and then nobody's going to be gambling, and the casino is going to lose too much profit.
Alexis: I hardly think that this will cost you anything.
Sonny: We'll see -- as soon as you're finished getting dressed.
Alexis: I am finished. Where are you going?
Alexis: I knew I should've gotten the other one.
Sonny: Here you go.
Alexis: It's a gardenia.
Alexis: Smells good.
Alexis: What do I do with it?
Sonny: Well, sometimes the women out here -- they put them in their hair.
Alexis: Oh. I'm not that type of woman to wear a flower in my hair.
Sonny: I dare you.
Sonny: Mm-hmm. Hmm. Perfect. All right, let's go. Because if I'm going to teach you how to enjoy yourself, then we got a lot of ground to cover.
Jax: Must have been someone else in the building.
Jax: Should we get back to work?
Carly: Yeah, but first I owe you an apology. I didn't like you. I mean, I really -- I didn't like you. I watched you treat the people that I care about with contempt, and I thought you were conceited and full of yourself, and I'm not entirely convinced that I was wrong. But you are more than that. You have been very generous and open-minded, and I'm grateful.
Jax: Well, everyone has an opinion, even if they don't know someone very well. I mean, you're -- ahem -- certainly more gracious than I gave you credit for, Carly.
Carly: Oh, thanks.
Jax: So let's just say that we surprised each other and get back to work. You were going to show me some price quotes, right?
Carly: Yeah. I have a list of suppliers. And somewhere in here, I've got the fees of all the vendors, like the liquor vendor, and here's the lighting –
Kristina: You don't like my outfit?
Gia: I'm sorry. I guess it's silly of me.
Kristina: You know, my father gave my mother this necklace. I figured I just would wear something that would compliment it, you know, as kind of a tribute to the Cassadine family. But I'm flexible. No problem. Maybe Nikolas could lend me one of his old tuxes or something, if you wouldn't mind.
Stefan: Oh, I think we can find something more suitable. Come with me.
Kristina: Okay, lead the way. I will be back, more suitably dressed, I promise.
Gia: I really didn't mean to sound snobby.
Kristina: That's all right. How many times do you get to announce your wedding engagement, right? Hopefully only once, so we should do it right. After you.
Lucky: Here's my question -- how come women always seem to get all crazy about the wrong outfit?
Gia: You both think I'm all kinds of shallow, don't you?
Nikolas: No, I happen to think you're incredible, and I love you more than anything on this earth. And I have impeccable taste. Ask my brother. He'll tell you, right?
Lucky: Especially when it comes to fiancées.
Nikolas: You see? You hear that? You're wonderful. You just can't help yourself, I guess.
Gia: Good answer.
Nikolas: Thank you.
Stefan: Mikkos had a dress like this custom-made for your mother. She wore it to pose for the cover of the only album she ever recorded.
Kristina: I remember that album. She looked so beautiful in it. And, you know, she was wearing this necklace.
Stefan: Now the ensemble is complete. I had this made for you.
Kristina: My mother's dress. I wish I would have seen more than a picture of her wearing this. And I would have if -- if it weren't for Helena.
Taggert: You wanted to see me?
Helena: Well, well, well, aren't we elegant? I never would have guessed.
Taggert: Look, I have somewhere to go, so let's get on with it. Are you going to plead guilty and save the state a lot of money?
Helena: Well, I'm very touched by your interest in my legal matters, but at the moment I'm far more concerned with Nikolas and Gia's engagement party. That is why you're so well-dressed, isn't it? Oh, I have my sources. These bars don't stop as much as you think.
Taggert: I'm late. Let's hear it.
Helena: Well, since you will be seeing Nikolas, I wonder if you might give him a message. You can do that, can't you, Lieutenant? Just for me?
Carly: Okay, so the walls, they're going to be covered from floor to ceiling with this beautiful -- oh, it's wonderful, shiny stuff. It's a fabric, but it reflects like a mirror, so it's going to make the place look a lot bigger. Ah, and the banquettes -- they're leather and chrome. And each banquette -- it gets its own individual sound and lighting system. That's pretty cool, huh?
Jax: Potentially. Now let's see the damage.
Carly: Okay, well, initially I think I can get us started with 400,000, but 1.5 million will be better because then I can get all the imported stuff in.
Jax: Wow. Well, you've made a serious miscalculation.
Carly: No, let's see. No, that's all correct. Right there. Look --
Jax: Not with the addition. No, you've seriously mistaken me for a bottomless pit of cash.
Carly: You can afford it.
Jax: That's not the point.
Carly: Look, this is a high-concept, high-style statement.
Jax: No, no, no, no. This is a high-cost, high-ego trip, okay?
Carly: What about making my dreams come true?
Jax: What you're proposing here with these figures -- I mean, we'll never recoup the costs. We'll be bust before we open.
Carly: Oh, come on.
Man: Excuse me.
Carly: What do you want?
Man: My name is Garland. I'm with the Port Charles zoning board. We received some applications for permits.
Carly: Okay, we're in the middle of something, but as soon as we want to deal with your red tape, we'll give you a call.
Jax: Actually, no, now will be a good time since you made the trip down here. Let me take care of this, okay? So, Garland, Jasper Jax. I'm one of the owners of the club.
Garland: Good to meet you.
Jax: I believe you're referring to the application for a variance.
Garland: Among others, yes.
Jax: Okay, well, some of our contractors have been a little busy lately, so we're not sure if we're actually going to get started before the holiday season starts. Why don't you give me your card, and I'll give you a call when we have a firm start date.
Garland: Okay, that's one less pile of paperwork for me.
Garland: But make sure you get it in by March 15. That's the appeals deadline.
Jax: Oh, thanks for the tip. You have a nice day.
Carly: Permits? Variances? Appeals? You know what? That is all stupid busywork that just gives me a headache.
Jax: You see, that behavior is why you will need supervision.
Zander: Wait a second, wait a second. What's happening with Emily?
A.J.: I think she's starting to walk.
Zander: So she's getting better? What are the doctors saying?
A.J.: I don't know. I didn't get into it with them.
Zander: Wait a second, A.J. There's something that you're not telling me. What else is going on?
A.J.: Oh, man, you know what? You're the last person I should get into this --
Zander: No, wait a second. Now, you started this. Now, if something's going on with Emily, I need to know.
A.J.: You know what? Maybe you're right. Okay, look, rehab hasn't been easy, okay? You know she tries to stay positive, but it's difficult and lonely and -- I don't know -- it's made me wonder if I was right to lie to her about you.
Zander: Oh, right. Now you're going to tell me that you had an attack of conscience.
A.J.: I don't like to hear my sister cry.
Zander: Then tell her that you lied. Help me and Emily get back together.
A.J.: I don't think I can.
Zander: Right. You'd rather leave Emily stuck in some stupid rehab center a hundred miles away from anyone she knows rather than admitting the truth so that I can go help her.
A.J.: I don't know you, Zander. You know what I'm saying? You know, on one hand, I see a guy who says he loves my sister. But on the other hand, I see a guy who does nothing but show his loyalty to Sonny Corinthos. Which one are you?
Gia: Lucky and I are going to go check out the food.
Lucky: Yeah, that's a good idea.
Nikolas: This old piano.
Nikolas: Ooh, that's bad.
Stefan: You know, Gia loves you very much.
Nikolas: Yes, she does, and I am grateful. You know, Uncle, that piano is way out of tune. We should probably get that checked out.
Stefan: Nikolas, Gia spoke to me. She confirmed what I already suspected -- that you're thinking of your father, that you're afraid he might live on in you.
Nikolas: I'll get past it.
Stefan: I know that. But you need to believe it. There is no possibility that you will turn into your father.
Nikolas: How do you know that?
Stefan: I know that because there is too much goodness in you. So much so that your influence led Stavros to make the one redemptive act of his life.
Nikolas: Uncle, why couldn't he have changed more or sooner? Why couldn't he have been what --
Stefan: A real father to you?
Stefan: I wish he could have been. I wish he could have been a real brother to me. But he was neither. We have to accept that and move on.
Gia: Okay, time's up. Did you two finish solving the problems of the world?
Lucky: Man, Nikolas, your uncle -- you really outdid yourself. I mean, the caviar is great and stuff, but I didn't see any ribs.
Nikolas: Ah, those would have been good. Uncle, how could you not get ribs?
Stefan: Oh. You are absolutely captivating.
Kristina: It feels a little strange but wonderful.
Stefan: I only wish your sister were here to see you instead of neglecting us for business, was it?
Sonny: I told you you'd cost me money.
Man: Senor Corinthos, buenas noches.
Sonny: Armando, que tal?
Armando: Todo bien.
Sonny: Full house tonight?
Armando: Yes, Sir. Business is excellent.
Sonny: All right, then we should celebrate. Bring some chips for my guest, please.
Armando: Certainly. If you'll excuse me.
Alexis: I -- I don't feel comfortable gambling.
Sonny: I insist.
Alexis: So you're ordering me?
Sonny: Never. Take a chance. You might like it.
Alexis: Oh. Gracias.
Alexis: I don't want to lose your money.
Sonny: We both know I can make more money. Don't worry about it.
Sonny: All right.
Alexis: Your loss.
Sonny: So, what's your pleasure? Blackjack, craps?
Sonny: Come on.
Alexis: Hope you know what you're doing.
Sonny: I don't regret it.
Alexis: You might. All of them on number four.
Sonny: Uh -- why four?
Alexis: First number that popped into my head.
Sonny: I wonder why.
Alexis: I have no idea.
Sonny: I live in penthouse four. Keep your eye on the wheel, will you?
Alexis: This is kind of --
Croupier: Number four, black.
Sonny: You win.
Alexis: Did you have anything to do with that?
Sonny: First of all, the Puerto de Santos is a legitimate casino. None of the games are rigged. Second of all -- and most important -- I'm only a part owner. My associates wouldn't appreciate it if I fixed a game for anyone -- not even my lovely attorney. After all, you took the house for 35,000 bucks.
Alexis: What if I lost?
Sonny: You don't lose. That's why I pay you so much.
Alexis: I think I need to sit down.
Sonny: Yeah? All right. Whatever you want.
Alexis: Oh, what's this? Mmm. That tastes like candy.
Sonny: Yeah? You like that? Ahem. Can you bring her another rum, and for me, the usual.
Woman: Coming up.
Alexis: "The usual"? You come here often?
Sonny: Only when I need to. Can you save my seat?
Man: May I have the next dance with the beautiful young lady?
Alexis: Oh, I'm sorry. No, thank you.
Man: You can't have any fun watching from the sidelines.
Man: Come on.
Alexis: Okay, maybe just for a little bit.
Alexis: Oh! Where'd you come from? Oh! Thank you. You're a good dancer. I'll be right back.
Sonny: My turn.
Zander: A.J., why can't I love Emily and be loyal to Sonny? Emily never had a problem with Sonny or anything I ever did for him until you lied to her.
A.J.: I'm just trying to find a solution here. Why don't you do Emily a favor and meet me halfway?
Zander: A.J., she's going through all this because you lied to her.
A.J.: Well, then, prove I'm wrong. Show me that you're willing to do what's right for Emily’s sake.
Zander: Oh, right, right. "What's right for Emily’s sake."
A.J.: Sonny kidnapped a woman named Janine.
Zander: Give me a break. Sonny doesn't go around just kidnapping people.
A.J.: And what do you call what he did to me?
Zander: Protecting Carly and Michael.
A.J.: If you buy that, you'll believe anything this guy tells you, which proves that you are wrong for my sister.
Zander: All right, cut to the chase. Who is this woman and what does she have to do with you?
A.J.: She can hurt my family, especially my grandfather. Now, Sonny's got this woman stashed somewhere. All I'm trying to do is save my family a lot of pain and humiliation, Zander.
Zander: So you want me to spy on Sonny's operation?
A.J.: No, I want you to help me get this woman out of town. And then I will -- I'll tell Emily that I lied about you pouring vodka down my throat. So, what do you say? Do we have a deal or what?
Jax: You know, if you speak to that man Garland like that, who is the inspector, you will never get this place opened. Learn to think before you speak, okay?
Carly: You know, you're not the first person who's told me to count to 10, and you're definitely not the most persuasive.
Jax: Well, I bet I'm the only one who can and will pack up his checkbook and go home. Now, I'm sure Sonny and Jason put up with your little tantrums. In fact, they probably encouraged them because it would make them look like the rational ones. But I don't play those games, Carly, okay?
Carly: Well, you know what? I refuse to lie down and let you roll over me every time you don't buy one of my ideas.
Jax: I don't expect you to. I just want you to listen.
Carly: Okay, I will keep an open mind, and I will hold my tongue in public. I will adjust the figures downward, I promise.
Jax: Make friends with the inspector, okay?
Carly: I feel better already.
Jax: And I feel hungry. It's amazing how interfering in the spending of your own money can work up an appetite.
Carly: Well, why don't you run along and get something to eat. And when you come back, I promise I will have some new figures for you.
Jax: I'm sure you'll come up with something that's equally brilliant. Perhaps better.
Carly: Ooh, I will. All right. Okay, that can go. And who really needed any Italian leather, anyway?
Skye: Don't get too happy too soon. You're in big trouble.
Stefan: A toast -- to the newest members of the Cassadine family -- to Kristina, my sister, who came out of the past to bless us. To Gia, who will bring us into the future as my nephew's bride. Welcome to you both. May we have many happy years together.
Lucky: Hey, cheers.
Gia: Marcus. You're early.
Taggert: I -- I got a message for Nikolas. And just in case it's a threat, I thought I'd better not waste any time.
Stefan: I assume it's from Helena?
Taggert: You want to go somewhere private, Nikolas?
Nikolas: No, Taggert, that would give her way too much power, so just tell me and be done with it.
Taggert: All right, she says, "Your destiny has arrived. You can't escape it. Your life is no longer your own." Is that some kind of threat, something I can take to a judge?
Lucky: Why does Helena get to do this again? She ruins every decent thing that anybody tries to do!
Taggert: I know this is bad timing, but I just had to make sure this wasn't a threat against my sister. I'm sorry.
Nikolas: No, it's not. It's about me. Helena refuses to let go. She will try to control us -- this whole family -- until the day she dies.
A.J.: So, what do you say? Do we have a deal? I tell Emily the truth. You save my family a lot of grief. We all win.
Zander: You're good, A.J. You're good. I almost bought the whole act, pretending to care about Emily crying. She'd never cry to you. You know what? Maybe she does have to love you because you're her brother, but, man, she doesn't like you. Probably didn't even talk to her, did you?
A.J.: Well, I don't trust you, so why should you trust me, right? But we both have something to gain here.
Zander: Oh, yeah? What do I have to gain from this, A.J., huh? Am I going to get Emily back? You don't have the guts to go to her face and tell her that you lied, which is going to make her hate you for the rest of your life, which she will, I guarantee you.
A.J.: It's your decision, but --
Zander: Yeah, I'm supposed to believe that you all of a sudden care about protecting your grandfather? Come on, man. Give me a break.
A.J.: I gave you a chance, Zander. Two strikes, you're out. Second time you chose Sonny over Emily.
Zander: Now, wait a second. No, I chose him over you. Sonny's never broken his word to me. Have you ever kept your word to anyone? You used your sister, and you're still using her. Trading on your sister's pain to get what you want -- what's wrong with you, man? You're sick. You don't deserve to have her as a sister.
A.J.: You don't have her at all and you never will because your loyalty is to Sonny.
Zander: You know what? Being who Emily made me and doing what she'd think is right -- that's what's important. I mean, I know you'll never get that. You don't understand that. You're nothing. That's why. You're nothing.
Jax: I'd say that kid was a pretty good judge of character.
Carly: Are you speaking to me?
Skye: You are in deep trouble, Mrs. Corinthos. Now, I hate to be the bearer of bad news --
Carly: Okay, you can hold it right there. I don't like you, you're not my friend, so why would I listen to you?
Skye: Maybe you'll recognize the truth when you hear it.
Carly: Oh, is this anything like your offer to help set up A.J.? Because that was a setup, and I'm sure this is, too, so why don't you save us both some time and leave.
Skye: I didn't come to fight with you.
Carly: Yeah, so why did you come? To invest? Because I've got all the backing I need.
Skye: You got me all wrong. See, I know we're supposed to be on opposite sides, but do you remember a while back when I offered to be your friend?
Carly: Yeah, and I think I just mentioned that was a setup.
Skye: Not entirely. See, I finally thought that I found someone just like me in this pathetic town, somebody who knew what it was like to have to fight for everything that she got. And thinking that we're both on the same side, I really thought that we could watch each other's backs.
Carly: Oh, you watch my back? You'd just as soon put a knife in it.
Skye: You don't even deserve this, okay, but I'm going to warn you anyway. Do not trust Jax, sweetheart -- no matter how smooth, no matter how sweet. The man has his own agenda. He is using you the same way he used me -- to get Sonny.
Alexis: I can use a little air.
Sonny: Air is good.
Alexis: Yeah. I've never seen you dance before. You're pretty good. You didn't step on my feet or anything.
Sonny: My pleasure.
Gia: Forget Helena. She can't hurt us anymore, Nikolas.
Stefan: Helena's only power is what you give her.
Lucky: Look at me. You know, there was a time when I never thought that I'd be able to think my own thoughts, that Helena could use me to hurt anybody that she wanted to. Well, now, here we are, and Helena’s stuck in a 4x6 cell wearing a Day-Glo jumpsuit. Only thing she can do is take her metal cup and slap it around and make some noise. And our job? To ignore her so that you guys can get married and live happily ever after.
Nikolas: You're right. You're right.
Taggert: Your grandmother's being watched 24 hours a day, Nikolas. She's not going to see the light of day for a very long time.
Stefan: Listen, we need to make a pact. We will not allow Helena to ruin this evening. Now, Lieutenant, thank you very much for delivering the message, but we choose to ignore it. Now, let's have another toast before the rest of our guests arrive.
Nikolas: Yes, Taggert --
Lucky: Hear, hear.
Taggert: Thank you.
Nikolas: I'll grab mine.
Stefan: To Gia and Nikolas and to Kristina.
Lucky: Well, that would be fine, but Kristina’s not here.
Kristina: The woman who you murdered hasn't returned from the grave. But she did have two daughters by your husband -- Alexis and me.
Jax: Thank you.
A.J.: Surprised at you. You know who you're defending? Sonny's latest thug-in-training.
Jax: Okay. Just because the kid is misguided enough to work for Corinthos doesn't mean he's wrong about you. You know, it's a pity your sister buys your act because you're sure as hell not worth it.
A.J.: Jax, you leave my sister out of this.
Jax: You listen to me. If you were any kind of man, you would go after Corinthos on your own instead of hiding behind Skye’s skirt. Yeah, you're playing her for all you're worth, getting her to do what you're too spineless to do yourself.
A.J.: Well, I will be glad to share this with Skye, let her know how much you care.
Jax: And what if she gets hurt saving your sorry butt? Who are you going to blame then?
Carly: Why would you care if Jax was using me to get to Sonny? Which he isn't. But you and your pathetic brother and your whole phony family hates Sonny, so what does it matter who gets hurt as long as Sonny goes down?
Skye: Remember what I said about us being alike -- and this is one of the ways. We let our guard down, we get dumped on. Well, I let my guard down with Jax. I let myself get vulnerable. He actually made me feel good about myself. Sound familiar? That's when I found out that he was using me, and then I found out that he was doing the same thing to you.
Carly: And I repeat -- why do you care?
Skye: Don't believe me. That is up to you. But if you think that Jax is backing you because he thinks you're some hotshot entrepreneur, you think again.
Carly: Okay, Jax is backing me because this is a good investment.
Skye: Oh, grow up! It's a con job. Jax thinks your ideas are bogus. Jax's interests have nothing to do with you or your ideas and everything to do with his own agenda. Face it, sister. He is using you.
Carly: Okay, you know, whatever Jax did to you, it's got nothing to do with me.
Skye: Fine. I had my say. Now you deal with it however you want.
Sonny: You had a little too much?
Alexis: To drink?
Alexis: No. I like rum. I like this place. And I like the way it makes me feel.
Sonny: Puerto Rico does that.
Alexis: I wonder if it has that effect on everyone.
Sonny: Well, you know, rum is like that. Some people drink half a bottle and they stay sober, and then others take one shot and go straight to their head.
Alexis: How do you know I'm drunk? Maybe I'm just enjoying myself.
Alexis: I am --
Alexis: You know, enjoying myself.
Alexis: I don't just salsa with anyone.
Sonny: You just did.
Alexis: You're not anyone. And neither am I tonight because I put all of my chips on number four. And not because it was your apartment. It was just sort of the number that came into my head. It was an impulse. It was an impulse. I, Alexis Davis, am being impulsive, and I like it.
Alexis: I like it so much that I am going to take off my shoes and I am going to --
Sonny: Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Alexis: Walk in the fountain.
Sonny: Well, that's definitely impulsive, all right.
Alexis: I am impulsive.
Sonny: All right.
Alexis: I am impulsive. And now I am going, for my next number, to walk on the edge of the fountain --
Sonny: Alexis --
Alexis: Which is very impulsive.
Sonny: Alexis --
Alexis: What, you think I'm going to fall? I'm not going to fall. I have perfect balance. Watch me.
Sonny: You --
Alexis: Watch. I can walk, see? I can skip. See?
Alexis: I can even hop --
Sonny: No -- no, no, no. Don't -- okay. Go ahead. Say it. You can say anything tonight. Tonight is yours. You can do whatever you want.
