>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Nikolas: Money will always affect my life, and now yours.
Gia: Are you trying to tell me that you want to give it up?
Jax: Don't trust Skye. She has her own agenda. Going somewhere?
Alexis: Friends to the end.
Carly: What's A.J. talking about? Does he really have something on you?
Mike: I need your help.
Gia: Do you honestly want to give up your inheritance?
Nikolas: It's a huge responsibility.
Gia: Which you're entitled to.
Nikolas: Later, when I'm 25. I did not expect Stefan to offer it to me tonight.
Gia: Well, what difference does a few years make?
Nikolas: I guess none. It's just that this empire is going to change my life.
Gia: You're ready. Look, everything Stefan said about you tonight was true. You are strong and brave, and you have the potential to change your family for the better. So why not take it over?
Lucky: It's because it's a bad idea. If you take over the Cassadine Empire, it's going to chew you up and spit you out. Don't do it, big brother.
Jax: I'm sorry, is this a bad time?
Skye: Oh, you can drop the perfect manners. I'm basically immune at this point.
Jax: Look, Skye, I don't know what game you're playing --
Skye: And while you're at it, the cool, collected, oh-so-charming routine? Well, that's getting a little tired, too.
Jax: Okay, I don't know what set you off, and at this stage, I really don't care, but do us both a favor -- stay out of my business.
Skye: Oh. Oh, I see. You've talked to Carly.
Jax: As you expected.
Skye: Well, let me guess. She sobbed on your shoulder, asking how you could use her so heartless when she was so sure she could depend on strong, competent Jax. Well, it's quite predictable and maudlin, really.
Jax: Drop it, Skye. Whatever scheme you're up to is stopping now.
Zander: Thank you.
Carly: You were right. Skye -- she was completely off base about Jax.
Zander: What, she was pushing her own agenda?
Carly: Yeah, as usual. You know, I knew I couldn't trust that woman from the minute that I met her.
Zander: But you can trust Jax?
Carly: Business is business with Jax. He doesn't allow his personal feelings to interfere, which is why he's so rich. So now it is full speed ahead with my club. But only after we help Mike.
Zander: Help him how?
Carly: Well, we need to find out where Sonny's men are keeping this Janine woman so Mike can talk to her before Sonny gets home.
Zander: Carly, I said I would stop you from doing anything stupid, and this definitely qualifies. Now, this is only going to make things worse for you and Sonny.
Carly: We signed divorce papers. Really, how much worse can it get?
Zander: Carly, come on. You were going to give up your whole club not to hurt Sonny. Now you're going behind his back, prying into his business? Come on, you got to know how Sonny is going to react to this.
Carly: No, I know. You're right. He's going to hate it.
Zander: Okay. So back off. Look, I know how much you still care for Sonny, and I know he still cares for you, okay? It's not too late to call this whole thing off.
Alexis: What time do you think is it?
Sonny: It's pretty late.
Alexis: How late? How late do you think? The stars are still shining. Mmm. The air smells like -- oh, hibiscus. I love hibiscus. And I am up way past my bedtime.
Sonny: We could call it a night.
Alexis: And why would we want to do that when we're having so much fun?
Sonny: You know what? You have excellent rhythm.
Alexis: I danced with two people I never met tonight.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah.
Alexis: I've never done that before. Actually, I did that once in college with a drunken rugby player. He spun me out onto the dance floor and promptly passed out on top of me. This was much more pleasant.
Sonny: I'm glad you had a good time.
Alexis: I not only had a good time, I had an impulsively good time. I threw my cares to the wind.
Sonny: Nothing wrong with that.
Alexis: Uh-uh. You've never seen me do that before, have you?
Sonny: Maybe you wanted to all along, you just never gave in to yourself.
Alexis: Or don't you mean I didn't give in to you? Because this free-for-all was, indeed, your idea. Not that it was really free at all for you because I did cost you a lot of money.
Sonny: Did you have a good time?
Alexis: I had a great time. I loved winning. I loved winning --
Sonny: No, no, no, no. You see, you had a great time. You won a lot of money.
Alexis: I did.
Sonny: And then you lost it with style.
Alexis: Not all of it. I still have a chip. The chip to end all chips. You see, I'm still ahead of the game. And that's exactly where I want to be.
Monica: What do you want?
Alan: I've been going over that conversation, you know, that we had before, and I was hoping that we could reach some kind of middle ground.
Monica: I'm listening.
Alan: I shouldn't have proposed what I did, you know, at the party. I should have waited till we could speak in private.
Monica: Well, this is pretty private.
Alan: To be quite honest with you, I was thinking that you would agree with my solution.
Monica: To put Rae up in the Port Charles hotel for Christmas Eve night?
Alan: I know you don't want her in the house.
Monica: I don't want her in the state.
Alan: Look, Rae and Skye need to be with each other at Christmastime, and I thought that it would make perfect sense for me to spend Christmas Eve with them.
Monica: You know, Christmas Eve was a tradition with us.
Alan: It's not to say that I'm not going to spend part of the evening with you, Monica. I mean, you know, I would be back later, and we would sit by the fire, and I would toast you with eggnog, and -- look, our life has never been easy. We've been through hell in our marriage, including a divorce. But we can get through this.
Alan: Skye has never spent a holiday with her real father or her real mother. I want to give her this gift. Please try to understand.
Jax: I don't get it. Sonny's your enemy, not Carly. Why would you be telling her I was using her? And you, for that matter?
Skye: Because it happens to be the truth.
Jax: Excuse me?
Skye: Men like you have it down to a science, don't you? The smooth lines, the charm.
Jax: Okay, what have I done, exactly?
Skye: Do you pick women like me and Carly? Women who put up a great front but, lo and behold, there's a touch of vulnerability underneath? Women who find themselves in a jam and have to depend on a confident man to get them out of it? And there you are, the knight in shining armor, coming along to save the day, rescuing one damsel in distress after another, giving them the same smooth lines and getting the same smiling expressions, when in the end, ultimately, none of those women matter to you in the least.
Jax: Are you saying that you wanted us to be something special?
Carly: Look, Mike needs my help. I'm going to help him.
Zander: By doing something that Sonny will hate?
Carly: You know, Mike defended me when Sonny turned against me, which is huge, considering how hard that he fought to get his son back in his life. He's been an incredible friend to me, and I'm not going to turn against him now that he needs me.
Zander: So he needs you to go behind Sonny's back, which is going to make whatever this is worse in the end.
Carly: Look, I know what it's like to keep a secret from Sonny, and then to have him discover it. One minute he is looking after you with love and trust, and the next minute his eyes, they go cold and hard.
Zander: So the smartest thing would be not to keep the secret in the first place.
Carly: Look, this is Mike's decision. It has taken him years to get Sonny to let him back into his life. And Sonny loves him, too. Even though he won't admit it, he needs Mike just as much as Mike needs him. So you know what? I'm doing this for Sonny as well as for Mike.
Sonny: So, is tonight everything you wanted?
Alexis: I didn't even know that I wanted what I wanted.
Sonny: You just let go and you went for it.
Alexis: I did. I just -- like roulette, you know. You just throw it down there and let it go.
Sonny: You should have done it a long time ago.
Alexis: I should have, but I can tell you I wouldn't have been able to a long time ago. There were things that held me back. I think I understand what some of them are right now. You aren't even going to ask me, are you?
Sonny: If you want to tell me, you'll tell me.
Alexis: You are so easy to confide in.
Sonny: We trust each other.
Alexis: Trust. Not an easy thing to come by in my family. I have kept more secrets, buried more secrets, and I think that's why I have a habit of censoring my every thought and my every action.
Sonny: You could have fooled me tonight.
Alexis: I could have fooled myself tonight. I had fun. I had fun. Thank you.
Sonny: It doesn't have to end.
Alexis: Now what are you planning?
Gia: Lucky, it's no surprise that you want Nikolas as far away from the Cassadines as you can get.
Nikolas: Lucky is just looking out for me.
Gia: Helena and Stavros are gone. I mean, what can be so terrible about running the estate?
Nikolas: Gia, it's not that simple. Stefan, ever since I was a little boy, groomed me to take on the title and responsibilities as a prince.
Gia: Which means you'd be good at it.
Lucky: No. It means that he was stifled.
Nikolas: Lucky's right. I wasn't allowed to have dreams of my own.
Kristina: That's awful. Everyone deserves to have dreams.
Nikolas: Yes, and I learned that when I met Lucky and my mother.
Lucky: Life with the peasants.
Nikolas: You were allowed to make the choices you wanted, and mom supported it. You know, both of you -- you taught me to want to be myself and follow my dreams. And for the first time, I realized that I didn't have to be tied down to the Cassadine legacy.
Lucky: So don't do it. You don't need this job.
Nikolas: There is such a thing as duty. Whatever decision I make, it will be on my own, I promise.
Lucky: That's all I wanted to hear.
Nikolas: All right. Thank you.
Nikolas: Get out of here.
Lucky: All right.
Stefan: Oh, hello. Well, Nikolas. Are you ready to sign the papers?
Carly: Look, I need to look for Janine. If you don't want to, it's okay, I will do it myself.
Zander: I'm in.
Carly: Hey, Mike.
Mike: Hey. Have you found out where Janine is?
Carly: No, not yet.
Zander: I'm going to go make some phone calls, see if I can dig up some information.
Mike: All right, thanks, Zander. When is Sonny coming back?
Carly: I don't know.
Mike: But that could be any time. I mean, even tonight.
Carly: We will find her, Mike.
Mike: Look, I'm sorry, Carly. I -- I don't mean to drag you into this.
Carly: Look, I'm not trying to pry. I just think if I knew, then it might be easier to help. What does this Janine woman have on you that you are so determined to keep from Sonny?
Alexis: So, what do you have in mind?
Sonny: Well, the restaurant's closed and so is the casino.
Alexis: I just need to be clear about this -- skinny-dipping is out of the question.
Sonny: Did I say anything about skinny-dipping? I thought we could have a nightcap and then take -- you know, maybe play two-handed poker.
Alexis: Oh. Now, there's a possibility.
Sonny: Yeah. And then at the crack of dawn, we could take a swim -- with bathing suits.
Alexis: Why do I get the feeling you're a better poker player than I am?
Sonny: There's only one way to find out. I haven't really been sleeping lately because -- well, anyway, I have to kind of, like, drink a lot or kind of swim till I get tired. I'd rather play cards.
Alexis: Oh, well, in that case, I can't refuse because I don't want you to brood.
Sonny: I don't brood. I think.
Alexis: You brood. Get the cards. You helped me; I'm going to help you.
Sonny: You already did. I -- I feel different here, you know? At peace. You're good company.
Alexis: That would be the real world intruding.
Zander: It's Zander.
Sonny: What happened?
Zander: There's a problem with Carly and Mike.
Sonny: What about Carly?
Skye: Why would I want anything special with you?
Jax: That's what you implied.
Skye: Well, I'm glad to see there's nothing wrong with your ego.
Jax: You saw me and Carly, didn't you? You followed me to her new club site.
Skye: I happened to be passing by and, yeah, yes, I saw you.
Jax: Discussing the new venture. See, I was reassuring her. You probably even saw us dancing together.
Skye: Oozing charm from every pore.
Jax: And you felt I'd done exactly the same thing to you, which made you feel betrayed and hurt.
Skye: Did I say that?
Jax: You didn't have to. That's human nature. No one wants to feel like they're part of an assembly line.
Skye: Wait. Back up. You should be furious with me.
Jax: Well, you only reacted naturally.
Skye: No. I did a really mean thing. You tried to be kind to me, and it was a totally wasted effort. I'm the jerk.
Jax: Well, you did manipulate Carly and you did lash out at me, but --
Skye: Yeah, so go ahead, yell at me. I deserve it.
Jax: No, I hurt you, Skye. Okay? I'm sorry. I didn't mean to.
Skye: No. I'm sorry. When I saw you dancing with Carly, I got upset. And I -- I guess I didn't put a name on it, but I was jealous, and I tried to get back at you.
Jax: Carly and I were doing business. Okay? She hit a snag; I was trying to help her regain some enthusiasm, that's all.
Skye: You don't have to explain.
Jax: I know, I know, but that's the truth.
Skye: When we first got to Louisiana, I loathed it. You may have noticed. But then somehow the trip turned around and -- and I had a wonderful time. You were kind and generous and funny. And it felt really special to me, and -- and I assumed it did to you, too.
Jax: I've never had a trip quite like it.
Jax: No, no. I mean I really -- I enjoyed myself.
Skye: I told you that I usually repay kindness with hostility, and I guess I proved myself right. It's just that I found I wanted more. Oh, God. That sounded trite.
Jax: No, it doesn't. Of all the so-called "complete" boxed dinners out there,
Jax: Skye, you're a beautiful woman, and I like beautiful women.
Skye: You didn't like me in the beginning.
Jax: Well, let's just say that we got off to a unique start.
Skye: That's one word for it.
Jax: I mean, I was ready to detest you. And almost did. But you surprised me in Louisiana by being bright and charming and making me laugh.
Skye: I'll take that as a compliment.
Jax: It's also fair to tell you that -- there's very little I'm capable of giving. I'm not ready to fall in love with anyone. And I don't think I ever will be because that part of my life is over.
Skye: Jax, I'm really sorry you lost the woman you loved, but there's really no reason to warn me. I'm not in love with you.
Jax: I didn't say you were.
Skye: Why the explanation?
Jax: I just want things to be clear between us.
Skye: They are.
Monica: I am trying to understand, but, honestly, Alan, you ask too much.
Alan: Can you meet me halfway?
Monica: We were seconds away from renewing our wedding vows when she barged in here.
Alan: Well, that's life, Monica. Everything changes all the time, and there's no point in fighting it because it's going to happen anyway. Lord knows we've learned that lesson well enough.
Monica: Yeah, well, this time it's different. I can feel -- I feel you withdrawing, and I don't know how to get past that.
Alan: It's because I can't discuss Skye with you.
Monica: Oh, for heaven's sakes! That's all we do discuss, ad infinitum.
Alan: You don't seem to understand how much I care about her, Monica.
Monica: Well, then we're stuck because I don't think you can respect my point of view.
Alan: All right, try me.
Monica: Ever since she planted herself in this house, she has stirred up trouble. She's torturing Edward. If she doesn't get him under her thumb, she's going to expose that floozy to Lila.
Alan: Well, it may not be what it appears to be.
Monica: Well, call me old-fashioned, but I don't find blackmail that endearing.
Alan: I must say I can't condone her treatment of my father.
Monica: Well, that's good to hear.
Alan: But I do respect her for reaching out to A.J. and going after Sonny.
Sonny: Did Carly say what she's going to do next?
Zander: Carly wants to do the right thing, all right? She thinks she's trying to do right by your dad, and she even thinks in some weird way that she's going to be able to help you. Anyway, you said to watch over her and if something crazy happened to give you a call.
Sonny: No, you're right. You're right to call me.
Zander: All right, just so you know -- Carly is doing this for you, not against you.
Sonny: Yeah, I understand. I'll be back as soon as I can.
Carly: Mike, this -- that's huge. It's -- this is unbelievable.
Mike: Now you know why I have to find Janine.
Carly: Well, why did you keep this for so many years?
Mike: Because -- what choice did I have?
Carly: Well, you could have told Sonny the minute that you saw him. But now -- you're right. Sonny is not going to get past this.
Mike: He'll shut me out of his life -- permanently.
Zander: I'm coming up empty. I'll try again in the morning.
Carly: Okay. Thanks. Hey, will you take me home?
Mike: Yeah. Of course.
Carly: Okay. See you tomorrow, okay, Zander?
Zander: No problem.
Carly: Look, I didn't want to say this in front of Zander because he could get into trouble with Sonny for helping us, but this can't wait until morning.
Mike: But it's the middle of the night. I mean, what can we do?
Carly: Come with me, okay? Come on.
Sonny: So, apparently, this woman Edward wants me to handle has some connection to Mike. Carly got herself in the middle.
Sonny: I have to go home.
Alexis: Well, what do I do about the labor dispute?
Sonny: Well, they're supposed to vote tonight. So can you call the representative and have them messenger the contract to the airport? I'll sign it before I get on the plane.
Alexis: The union may have voted against your offer.
Sonny: No, they didnít.
Alexis: How do you know? Oh -- you know, it's my job as your attorney to inform you that tampering with a union vote is against the Rico statutes.
Sonny: I'll keep that in mind. You should probably get packing.
Alexis: It was fun while it lasted.
Sonny: I'm really sorry.
Alexis: Don't be.
Sonny: Well --
Alexis: I needed this.
Sonny: I just -- I couldn't wait to play that poker game.
Alexis: Me, too, because I was looking forward to kicking your butt.
Sonny: I'll tell you what -- how about if I bring you back here someday?
Alexis: You're on.
Sonny: Okay. Let me know when you're ready.
Alexis: You're really worried about Carly, aren't you?
Sonny: Uh -- she has Zander, you know, to look after her.
Alexis: I'm sure you might have had something to do with their new friendship.
Sonny: Well, I mean, you know, Carly needs a friend. Zander needs a friend. And there's nothing wrong with asking him to help her.
Alexis: Not to mention that he can look after her for you.
Sonny: Well, I look after the people I care about.
Alexis: I know. I know.
Sonny: And that includes you.
Alexis: I'll go pack.
Stefan: Are you still having doubts about taking control of the estate?
Nikolas: I don't want to rush my decision.
Gia: Tonight was a celebration with family and friends, and I think the business announcement just took Nikolas by surprise.
Stefan: I understand. But I thought it was fitting in light of the occasion. Nikolas, you're a man now. You're about to be married, and you are ready to take your place as head of the family.
Nikolas: I thought that I had more time.
Stefan: Time won't change who you are.
Nikolas: I need a few minutes.
Nikolas: I thought you left with Lucky.
Kristina: Stefan invited me to spend the night here, so I agreed.
Nikolas: You couldn't resist a few more canapťs, huh?
Kristina: Oh. I think I'm going to go waddle upstairs before I finish the whole platter. Ooh.
Nikolas: Well, actually, Kristina, before you do, I would like your opinion on something.
Kristina: Nikolas, if this is about the inheritance --
Nikolas: If you were in my position, would you take it?
Kristina: I would really like to help you, but I think I'm probably the least qualified person you could ask about this.
Nikolas: Well, you are a part of the family and you're intelligent and, most of all, you're sane.
Kristina: Most of the time.
Nikolas: So, what do you think?
Kristina: Well, the size of this estate is mind-boggling. And it is such a charged issue between you and Stefan. But I got to be honest -- until tonight, I was completely in the dark about the whole thing.
Nikolas: Well, that's why I value your opinion. You can be objective.
Kristina: All right. As long as you promise not to take my advice.
Nikolas: Well, how about you giving the advice, and then I'll decide?
Kristina: That is a fair deal.
Kristina: Well, I like what your brother said about following your heart, but I think that that can be complicated.
Nikolas: How so?
Kristina: When I first came here, I was desperate to find my roots. But the Cassadines turned out to be a far cry from your typical happy family, you know?
Nikolas: And I'll bet Helena was a shock.
Kristina: Oh, she was terrifying. I could not believe what she did to my mother. And then Jax started telling me all these awful things about Stefan, and I didn't who to believe, what to believe.
Nikolas: But you had Alexis, right?
Kristina: Alexis is amazing. She's more than I could have ever imagined in a sister, but the rest was very confusing and difficult. Really, I mean, I was going to leave. There were moments when I had my bag packed and I was going to go back to Europe.
Nikolas: Believe me, I've been there. So, why didn't you?
Kristina: The Cassadines are our family. No matter who they are or what they are, we're a part of them. We can't run away from that. We shouldn't. We should never run away from that. I'm going to bed.
Kristina: Good night.
Nikolas: All right. Good night. Thank you.
Kristina: Congratulations again on your engagement.
Nikolas: Oh, thank you.
Kristina: You'll know what to do.
Zander: Lucky, what's up, man?
Zander: Have a seat. What are you all dressed up for?
Lucky: Oh, Nikolas and Gia had their engagement party. His uncle did the guest list. I'm sure he didn't know to invite you.
Zander: Why would he? The only reason any of you ever put up with me was because of Emily. I guess you heard we broke up.
Lucky: Actually, that's between you and Emily.
Zander: A.J. told her lies about me, and she believed him.
Lucky: I don't really want to get into this right now, Zander.
Zander: I go by the Quartermaines' two or three nights a week. I know exactly how to break in there, but I never do. I don't try and find out the address of where they sent Emily. I don't try and get Sonny to find it even though he could. Emily said if I loved her that I should leave her alone. And I've tried. Maybe that was a mistake. Maybe -- maybe what she needs is for me to fight for both of us.
Lucky: I think you need to let it go. You don't really know what's going on.
Zander: Then tell me.
Carly: Hey, Max.
Max: Mrs. Corinthos.
Carly: Hey, Sonny said I could pick up a box of Michaelís toys from his old bedroom, and Mike's going to carry them for me.
Max: I don't know.
Carly: Did Sonny ever tell you not to let me in?
Max: I'm going off duty now. Just lock up when you leave.
Carly: Thanks, Max.
Mike: Thanks, Max. Whew. So, what if Sonny had told him not to let you in?
Carly: He didnít.
Mike: Okay. Now that we're here, what are we looking for?
Carly: Okay, we need to find the addresses to all of Sonny's safe houses. They won't be in the desk, but sometimes he keeps important papers in his bedside table.
Mike: Worth a try.
Carly: Okay, stay here, and I'll run up and look, okay?
Mike: All right.
Janine: Yeah, I miss you, too, but I have to stick around for a little while longer. Because it'll all be worth it. When this is done, I'm coming home with a pot of gold.
Carly: No addresses.
Mike: So, what's next?
Carly: You know, I need to think, so maybe we should call it a night.
Mike: I'll take you home.
Carly: No, you know what? You go. I'll stay and lock up.
Mike: Are you sure?
Carly: I'm positive. Let's meet tomorrow morning, though, okay?
Mike: Okay. Take care.
Carly: See you. Bye.
Carly: "This certificate entitles Michael 'Sonny' Corinthos Jr. to win one argument against Carly Benson. Redeemable anytime." God, I wish you'd used it. I wish things could be different.
Monica: I don't want you going to the Port Charles Hotel for Christmas Eve dinner.
Alan: Okay, what will work for you?
Monica: Rae comes to the house.
Alan: Thank you.
Monica: No, but Skye has got to be on her best behavior.
Alan: I agree.
Monica: And I would prefer it if Rae did not spend the night in Port Charles.
Alan: Monica, she's coming from Llanview. She can't come from there and go back the same day. I'll book a hotel room for her.
Monica: What if she wants to stay longer?
Alan: She wonít. She's got a busy life.
Monica: Alan, it's just -- it -- it's awkward, that's all.
Alan: How so?
Monica: Well, what if you were to go visit Rae in her room and the two of you start reminiscing about old times?
Alan: And what?
Monica: Well, I don't know. People get sentimental during the holidays.
Alan: What are you saying, that I'd end up sleeping with her?
Monica: I don't know what I'm saying.
Alan: So you don't have any more trust in me than that? You're right, Monica. We are further apart than I ever thought.
Skye: Oh. Have you noticed that we have this pattern?
Jax: And what's that?
Skye: Well, we hiss and spit at each other like a couple of cats, and then we circle around each other with our backs arched. But eventually we end up purring contentedly like the best of friends.
Jax: Well, I can't say I've ever been called a cat before.
Skye: Well, now you know what's like to be compared to your horse, Ginger.
Jax: Well, I'll keep that in mind.
Skye: Oh, and, Jax, thank you again for the temporary proxy at the upcoming board meeting.
Jax: Well, you're welcome.
Skye: I will find a way to return that favor.
Jax: You're very special, Skye. I hope you know that. Good night.
Skye: Night. He'll never love again. Oh, we'll just see about that.
Gia: You know, Nikolas has a lot to think about. Why don't we table this until tomorrow?
Stefan: I think that's wise.
Nikolas: Don't put the papers away yet.
Stefan: Did you want to look them over?
Nikolas: I know what's in them, Uncle. You have been preparing me all my life. Where's a pen?
Stefan: This is good news.
Gia: Are you sure?
Nikolas: Close enough.
Stefan: You're making the right choice, Nikolas. You won't regret it.
Nikolas: I will do the best I can.
Stefan: I have complete confidence in you. I always have.
Gia: You'll be terrific.
Zander: All I need is a chance to set things straight.
Lucky: Yeah. It's too late.
Zander: If I could just sit down with Emily, I could tell her the truth. And then if she doesn't want to see me anymore, then so be it. But at least I got to say what I needed to say.
Lucky: Zander, like I said, I think it's wise if you just give this up.
Zander: I don't get it, man. I made Emily happy. You know that. She would come to you and tell you that. How are you acting like this is nothing?
Lucky: Because sometimes things just don't work out.
Zander: What do you mean?
Lucky: Believe it or not, Zander, I'm trying to help you from getting hurt.
Zander: It's too late. Emily is all that matters to me. I walk around thinking of ways that I could get back together with her. It can't get any worse than this. Lucky, if there's a chance for me and Emily to get back together, you got to help me, man. Please, for her sake. What? What's going on? Lucky, tell me.
Lucky: All right, man. You win. I'll give you her number.
Zander: Thanks, man. I owe you one.
Lucky: Sure. Just take care of yourself.
Zander: All right.
Lucky: Look out for number one.
