>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Scott: You go after what you want.

Bobbie: Assuming I know what it is I want.

Elizabeth: Are we okay now or not?

Lucky: Yes.

Zander: Hello?

Sonny: Thanks for telling me about Janine and Mike. He's hiding something, and I'm going to find out what it is.

Luke: I'm crazy about you.

Laura: I'm crazy about you, too, Luke.

Sonny: Uh -- I don't remember asking to see Ms. Matthews.

Johnny: She said it was important.

Janine: It is.

Alexis: You know what? We can do this some other time.

Sonny: No. I could actually use my attorney.

Alexis: Oh. Well, in that case, how convenient that I'm standing right here.

Sonny: Johnny -- wait outside, please.

Alexis: Bye, Johnny.

Johnny: Ms. Davis.

Sonny: Okay. My time is valuable.

Janine: Yes, of course. The last time I was here, you said that maybe you could be helpful to me.

Sonny: Uh-huh, if you gave me an honest answer, and you didn't.

Janine: I apologize. And I've reconsidered. I'd really like to help you, Mr. Corinthos. Ask me a question, I'll tell you anything.

Sonny: For a price.

Janine: Of course.

Sonny: What's in it for me?

Janine: You'll be buying yourself out of a whole lot of trouble.

Zander: Hello? Hello? Hello? Anybody there? Hey, you need some help?

Woman: I'm fine. No problem.

Zander: If your car's broke down, that's kind of a problem.

Woman: I've got it covered.

Zander: You don't sound too sure.

Woman: My boyfriend, Spike -- he's on his way back with help. But thanks anyway.

Zander: Look, this is a -- this is a bad area. I know a thing or two about cars. I could maybe help you fix it.

Woman: You take one step closer, you're going to be wearing this as a hat.

[Game show music plays]

[Applause]

Nikolas: All right, Mr. Spencer. We have come to the final question. If you answer correctly, you will have the life of your dreams and live happily ever after. However, if you answer incorrectly, you will lose everything. The stakes are high, but we know that you can do it. Are you ready?

Lucky: Well, I'll try my best, Mr. Nikolas.

Nikolas: How much do you love Elizabeth Webber?

[Clock ticks]

[Music plays]

Lucky: Could I have another question, please?

Nikolas: Oh, no, Mr. Spencer. I'm sorry. That's the one that you have to answer to win the life of your dreams.

Elizabeth: Lucky, tell him. You love me with all your heart. You always have. We are going to spend the rest of our lives together. Helena can't hurt us anymore. No one in the world can take away our love.

Luke: It's a simple question -- will you marry me? You know, if you get the yes part out of the way, we could go ahead and celebrate.

Laura: Have you lost your mind?

Luke: Quite possibly. But my few remaining brain cells are waiting for an answer.

Laura: Is that what this was all about, this whole fake secret mission thing -- it was all supposed to end up in a marriage proposal?

Luke: You seem to be having a little trouble grasping this.

Laura: Luke, do you really want us to get married again?

Luke: That is exactly what I want. I've never wanted anything more.

Laura: Oh, Luke. Oh, Luke. I love you.

Luke: I love you.

Laura: Wait a minute, wait a minute.

Luke: What?

Laura: I think there's something that I should remind you of.

Luke: Shoot.

Laura: The ink on the divorce papers isn't even dry.

Luke: I have a confession to make -- this divorce thing isn't working for me.

Laura: Maybe you shouldn't jump to that conclusion just yet.

Luke: Listen, darling, I hate to break this to you, but divorce is not always successful. The failure rate of divorce is very high. People get remarried all the time. All we have to do is admit we made a mistake -- which I, for one, am not too proud to do -- and fix it.

Laura: Yeah, but we were having problems for -- for a long time in our marriage, really. I mean, weren't we? And then when we got the divorce, it seemed kind of mutual to me.

Luke: Well, yes, but we dragged our feet till the last possible second. Now, what does that tell you?

Laura: That we weren't really sure.

Luke: Exactly.

[Laura chuckles]

Luke: Yeah.

Laura: Yeah. But then we got together and we examined our relationship from every possible angle. Remember?

Luke: Yes, I remember, and we decided that splitting up would be the answer to all our problems, but it wasnít. It was a terrible decision.

Laura: But then how do you know this is a good a good decision? Change is hard, and we were together for a very long time.

Luke: Well, see, that's my point. We were married a very long a very long time. This divorce thing is just a blip on the radar screen when you look at the big picture.

Laura: You're forgetting something.

Luke: What's that?

Laura: You hate being married.

Luke: Do I?

Bobbie: Luke is where?

Roy: He's on a love boat with Laura.

Bobbie: Oh, yeah. Well, that is very funny. So, where is he really?

Roy: No, no, I swear. The two of them, Luke and Laura, they're cruising -- it's like the S.S. Star Midnight or Midnight Star. They're on the high seas as we speak.

Bobbie: Okay. How did this happen?

Roy: Well, you know, I think Luke cooked up a little scheme or something.

Bobbie: Oh -- oh. So you're saying he got Laura on the boat under false pretenses?

Roy: Well, let's just say he's working out the details as he goes along.

Bobbie: You know, all of this business with the Cassadines really brought up a lot of stuff for Luke, and I could tell it kind of made him remember how much he loved Laura, but I didn't think he'd be in such a hurry to act on it.

Roy: He's never been one to sit around analyzing a situation before he jumps in, you know.

Bobbie: Yeah, well, I just hope it doesn't backfire in his face. I'm going to call Lesley and see if she's heard from Laura.

Mike: Hey, Roy.

Roy: Hey, Mike.

Mike: Hey. Hey, I hear you got a little poker game soon in the backroom.

Roy: You can't afford it, man.

Mike: I got cash on me.

Roy: Yeah, but we both know what'll happen.

Mike: Come on. I'll take it easy -- just an hour or two.

Roy: Yeah. You could get in over your head in the first five minutes, and, you know, then you'll keep going, trying to win your money back, and end up owing somebody more than you could possibly repay. It's the same old same old, and I can't let you do it.

Mike: Come on, just -- just a little while. If I don't stop in 30 minutes, you can kick me out.

Roy: What the hell is this? I mean, you've been doing really well. Why do you want to throw it away all of a sudden?

Zander: I'll pass on the iron hat, thanks. Anyway, it sounds like you've got everything taken care of. Your boyfriend Butch was coming back, right?

Woman: Spike -- any minute now.

Zander: The nearest gas station's actually pretty far away.

Woman: He jogged.

Zander: Oh. Must be in great shape.

Woman: He's on the track team and the wrestling team.

Zander: My shop teacher in high school had a car just like this. If I remember right, your problem's -- it's probably electrical.

Woman: It's somewhere between the distributor and the plugs.

Zander: Yeah. We looked at the car the whole semester. If you'd let me take a look, I could probably fix it pretty fast. Of course, I don't want to make Spike mad.

Woman: Well, actually, Spike's pretty unreliable.

Zander: Oh, yeah?

Woman: Yeah. He's stood me up a bunch of times. He goes off with his buddies all the time -- drinking, shooting pool.

Zander: So you think he might not come back?

Woman: Is there a pool hall in town?

Zander: Yeah. There's a couple of them.

Woman: Then forget it. I probably won't see him for days.

Zander: I'll just take a quick look under the hood. Is that okay?

Woman: Okay. But I'm not letting go of this tire iron.

Zander: That's fine. That's fine. If nothing else, you can use the -- to smash the distributor cap. Thanks. So, what brings you to Port Charles?

Alexis: The legal term for the transaction that you are suggesting is "extortion." It's a felony, Ms. Matthews. Mr. Corinthos doesn't have any intention of contributing to your retirement fund, so if there's information that he needs to have, why don't you just give it to him? Now.

Janine: You don't have to be so huffy.

Sonny: You're pressuring me. My attorney's just letting you know it's not going to work.

Janine: Hmm. So I'm just supposed to tell you everything for free? I don't think so.

Sonny: What changed?

Janine: What do you mean?

Sonny: Well, last time you were here, you were a nervous wreck.

Janine: Yeah, I was all a-twitter.

Sonny: And now you're here making demands and --

Janine: Well, I have information.

Sonny: Yeah? Well, you had it before.

Janine: Now I want to talk.

Sonny: When you were here before, you found out that I was Mike Corbinís son, the same Mike Corbin you were involved with --

Alexis: Sonny?

Sonny: What?

Alexis: I'm going to advise you that we should maybe have this meeting some other time. Let's reschedule it so we have the opportunity to --

Sonny: Alexis -- Alexis, I know what I'm doing. Do you, Ms. Matthews?

Janine: So Mike told you that we were involved, huh?

Sonny: Well, that's why you're here, isn't it? To give me some information about Mike?

Janine: I was just curious what else he told you.

Sonny: I'd rather hear the story from you.

Woman: I'm meeting a friend in Port Charles.

Zander: Well, I hope they're not waiting up because you're going to be late. I'm Zander, by the way.

Woman: Courtney.

Zander: Well, Courtney, if you have six inches of copper wire, I can get you back on the road.

Courtney: I don't usually carry around copper wire in my purse.

Zander: Well, then, find the nearest phone and I'll call you a tow truck.

Courtney: I can't afford one.

Zander: Okay. I'll give you a ride into town. You can stay at the nearest motel -- the Starview. It's cheap but it's clean. You get the copper wire in the morning.

Courtney: I'll crash out in my car.

Zander: By yourself?

Courtney: Do you hear me inviting anyone else?

Zander: Look, I'm just saying this is -- this is a pretty bad area. It's pretty remote out here.

Courtney: I don't want my car to get stolen, but thanks for the offer. I'll be fine. Really.

Zander: You short on cash?

Courtney: How do you go about finding someone in Port Charles?

Zander: Who are you looking for?

Janine: Sure, I'll tell you the story, as soon as we agree on a price. Hey, I promise it'll be worth every penny.

Sonny: Johnny? Johnny will be taking you back where you're staying.

Janine: What, that's it?

Sonny: I don't like to feel pressured. I am declining your offer. Maybe tomorrow, when I've cooled down, I'll consider it.

Janine: I bet you're a real good card player.

Sonny: I don't play games of chance. I prefer to control the odds.

Janine: I don't give anything away for free, and I think you can relate to that, Mr. Corinthos.

Sonny: Johnny.

Janine: You'll be sorry if you don't take me up on this.

[Sonny laughs]

Janine: If you don't get your arm off me --

Alexis: I wouldn't give her 50 cents.

Sonny: Depends on what she knows about Mike that I donít.

Bobbie: Hey, Mike.

Mike: Hey.

Bobbie: You look as if you've lost your best friend.

Mike: Bobbie, please, have a seat. Listen -- how -- how do you keep patching things up with Carly?

Bobbie: So this is about Sonny?

Mike: Something has come up, and if Sonny finds out --

Bobbie: You know, Mike, for what it's worth, maybe you're better off letting go. Sonny seems to be incapable of forgiveness.

Nikolas: Hey. I came as soon as I could.

Lucky: Ah. Maybe I shouldn't have called you so late.

Nikolas: No, no, it's fine.

Lucky: No, you were with Gia. This could've waited until morning.

Nikolas: Well, to be honest with you, she's watching a Grace Kelly movie, trying to imitate her walk. I don't think she noticed I left, so -- what's bothering you, man?

Lucky: I'm not sure. Maybe it's my imagination. But if it's real, I need to figure out what to do.

Nikolas: If what's real, exactly?

Lucky: I'm not feeling it anymore.

Nikolas: I'm not following you here, man.

Lucky: My love for Elizabeth, Nikolas -- I think it's gone.

Luke: I do like to be married. I do. I loved being married to you. It was just all that other stuff that I hated.

Laura: What other stuff?

Luke: Well, you know, that stuff -- that mundane stuff like paying the bills. I hate paying the bills. I mean, what's the point? You pay them on time and, in a month, here they are again, like nothing ever happened.

Laura: I don't get it.

Luke: What I'm saying is that I loved being married to you. It wasn't being with you I didn't like. It was just that stuff like the bills and -- oh, I don't know -- school meetings, you know? Mowing the lawn, deciding when to paint the house -- that kind of stuff. It piles up, and pretty soon you suffocate. That's the kind of stuff that makes marriage like anesthesia.

Laura: "Anesthesia"?

Luke: Well, yeah, that other stuff. But apart of that humdrum stuff, being married to you was absolutely perfect. It was. It was perfect. We had our problems, but even they were amazing. Darling, it's like poetry with you. We fit together. We're meant to be together. And I'm sorry, but we'll never be normal. We can't be normal because we're extraordinary. The truth of who we are and what we want has never changed.

Laura: But a lot of things have changed, Luke. You know, we're not on the run anymore. We're just at home, we're settled, and you're going to be bored.

Luke: I don't think so. Things are different now, but the magic is still here. I just want to be with you.

Laura: I don't know, Luke.

Luke: Well, I've decided the only way you're going to get out of this is to tell me you don't love me.

[Laura chuckles]

Luke: Can you do that?

Laura: You know I can't do that.

Luke: Yes!

Laura: You know I love you. Stop it. Stop it.

Luke: Yes.

Luke: That's great. Then it's all settled. We'll just choose a date. Your choice, whatever you want -- New Yearís Eve, Valentineís Day, Groundhog's Day -- I don't care.

Laura: You're really serious about this, aren't you?

Luke: Darling, I wouldn't be saying these things if I weren't serious.

Laura: I'm not sure.

Luke: What do you need to be sure?

Laura: You know, we really did each other an awful lot of damage.

Luke: I know, but we won't make that mistake again.

Laura: You know, it's pretty scary getting married for the first time and not knowing what you're getting into, but -- I don't know -- it's almost worse the second time. You know exactly what you're getting into.

Luke: Right, so we're ahead of the game.

Laura: But I just can't bear the thought of going through another divorce. It terrifies me.

Luke: We're resilient. We can take a little bump here and there. The point is that we love each other. That hasn't changed. Darling, I want desperately to make this work. I'm ready to take a big chance. What do you say?

Lucky: Elizabeth is still just as much in love with me as she's always been. It's just not the same for me.

Nikolas: You know, I'll never forgive myself for letting Helena do that to you.

Lucky: No. No, that's not what it is, because if I truly loved Elizabeth, Helena couldn't have taken that away.

Nikolas: Actually, Lucky, I saw it happen.

Lucky: Nikolas, I'm fine. I'm back to normal. The only thing that's different is the way that I feel about Elizabeth.

Nikolas: How -- how is it different? How?

Lucky: I care about her. I was happy to see her. You know, she's beautiful and fantastic and everything that I remember.

Nikolas: Right, but what? What's the problem? I don't get it.

Lucky: The knowing's gone -- that feeling that I had in my heart, that truth that told me that Elizabeth is the only girl for me. Maybe it's not true.

Nikolas: It is true. All right? You and Elizabeth are the real thing.

Lucky: Yeah? What if I was fooling myself?

Nikolas: You're not fooling yourself, man. Come on.

Lucky: Well, Elizabeth was my first girlfriend. Everybody seems to think that their first love's the real deal, right?

Nikolas: Sometimes it is.

Lucky: Well, how am I supposed to know? I have nothing to compare it to, man. Nothing.

Nikolas: Look, the only thing I can say is stop trying to make so much sense of this. You know, you and Elizabeth both have been through a great deal. It's going to take some time to get back to where you used to be. Come on. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? Look, brother, have patience. The true feelings will come back.

Lucky: What if they don't?

Nikolas: If they don't, then I will -- I will spend the rest of my life trying to make up for what I let happen. Go back to Elizabeth. Don't over think this. You two were meant to be together. You always were.

Lucky: Thank you for listening.

Nikolas: Anytime. All right? Get out of here. Go.

Sonny: Ah.

Alexis: What's this?

Sonny: Spaghetti pomodoro.

Alexis: Did you make that?

Sonny: Yeah. That's why people have kitchens -- to cook in them. Try it.

Alexis: All right. Here goes.

Sonny: So?

Alexis: You're waiting for a compliment, aren't you?

Sonny: Oh, no, no, no. Only if -- only if you want to.

[Sonny laughs]

Alexis: You're conceited enough already.

Sonny: See, that means you like it. Ah.

Alexis: It's really good.

Sonny: Let's eat.

Alexis: Ooh. I love this.

Sonny: Mmm. It's good, huh?

Alexis: Did Mike teach you how to cook?

Sonny: Can we change the subject?

Alexis: You're worried about him, aren't you?

Sonny: Not particularly.

Alexis: You wouldn't have given that woman 15 minutes of your time if she hadn't known Mike.

Sonny: Mike's lying about her.

Alexis: How do you know that?

Sonny: Well, because he went crazy trying to find her before we got back. And when he couldn't do that, he came tearing over here, ready to confess something. Then he couldn't go through with it. So he made up this -- this story about he and Janine had an affair and how he didn't think I could take it.

Alexis: Well, it sounds plausible.

Sonny: I know what Mike looks like when he lies, and it's usually about gambling, so he's ashamed. See, gambling is what took him away from me and my mother. It destroyed our family. So the real question is, what's happened this time?

Alexis: And you're assuming that it's bad?

Sonny: Well, it's the pattern with Mike. He bets what he doesn't have. He goes over his head. Then he owes somebody money. What if that person is dangerous and then, you know --

Alexis: Well, and then you intervene.

Sonny: Maybe I should -- maybe I shouldnít. Maybe, you know, he did it to himself. Maybe I should just let him pay for it. But the truth is I don't want him to get hurt. Whatever.

Alexis: Is there any way that you can find out what Mike is hiding without giving extortion money to Janine?

Sonny: Hey. Got any information on the casino employee Janine Matthews? All right. I want to know everything about her. Get more people on it. Call me in the morning. All right.

Courtney: There's this person I'm supposed to be meeting in Port Charles.

Zander: Ah, but you don't know where he is?

Courtney: It's not a he.

Zander: Okay.

Courtney: And I do know where she is usually. Just not right now.

Zander: Well, I'd start with the phone book.

Courtney: She's visiting Port Charles.

Zander: Okay. Try the hotels. I mean, you do know her name, right?

Courtney: Of course.

Zander: Why didn't you figure out a time and a place to meet?

Courtney: Well, that would have been kind of tough since she doesn't even know I'm on the road.

Zander: You know, I don't want to butt in your business or anything, but it seems to me like maybe this trip wasn't that great of an idea.

Courtney: When she left for Port Charles, she said she'd be gone a couple days. It's been weeks. Janine wouldn't act this way unless she was in some kind of trouble.

Zander: Janine, huh?

Courtney: Do you know her?

Laura: Okay. So we could take a chance. But how do we know that it's going to work this time?

Luke: This old dog has learned some new tricks. I've changed.

Laura: Hmm. Famous last words.

Luke: No, I have. I'm changing all the time. Look at this. I used to be the voice of pessimism and you were the voice of the optimist. That's different.

[Laura laughs]

Luke: It is. So, look, all we got to do is make sure we don't make the same mistakes again. What we'll do is sit down and negotiate our way through this thing so that -- so that it's risk-free.

Laura: Oh, come on. There's no such thing as a risk-free marriage.

Luke: Well, even that works to our advantage.

Laura: Really? How do you figure?

Luke: Because you love risk. You can't live without it.

Laura: What? Who are you talking about?

Luke: You, darling. I've seen the twinkle in your eye. I've seen the flush of your cheek.

Laura: No, no, no. I happen to like living in my safe, cozy little home with my children. I happen to like going to P.T.A. meetings and repainting the house occasionally and whatever else.

Luke: Well, then, why did you show up like that when I asked you to help me chase spies? Gotcha.

Mike: You know, if Sonny has a problem with forgiving, it's because of me.

Bobbie: Mike, you can't blame yourself. You had an addiction.

Mike: Bobbie, he was just a little kid. He needed his father, and I checked out. So he ends up with an abusive stepfather because I cared more about gambling than I did about him.

Bobbie: You're not responsible for the man your ex-wife married.

Mike: But I opened the door.

Bobbie: Oh, Mike. It's not going to help Sonny or you to keep punishing yourself.

Mike: Bobbie, I love him. But my mistakes are bigger than most. I mean, there are pieces of my past that I still can't get up the courage to tell him about.

Bobbie: Because you're afraid he'll reject you.

Mike: He's done it before.

Bobbie: Forgiveness does seem to be the one thing Sonny can't wrap his mind around. Carly knows that better than anyone.

Mike: Thanks for listening.

Bobbie: Hey, Mike, don't be too hard on yourself. If Sonny pulls away, it's his loss.

Mike: Thanks.

Roy: You take care of yourself, man.

Roy: I need to talk to you about something.

Zander: I know a Janine Wilson.

Courtney: Wrong one.

Zander: Oh. So, who is she, a friend?

Courtney: Someone from my hometown.

Zander: Oh. Where is that?

Courtney: You're nosy, aren't you?

Zander: I'm just saying, if you tell me her last name, maybe I could help you figure out --

Courtney: You know what? Maybe you are right about staying with the car. It is pretty spooky out here. Can I hitch a ride into town with you?

Zander: Yeah, sure.

Courtney: Great. I'll hang out until morning and then I'll start looking on my own.

Zander: And you're going to hook up with Spike once you get in town.

Courtney: There is no Spike.

Zander: Oh. He wasn't good enough for you anyway. Well, go get your stuff and we'll hit the road.

Courtney: Okay.

Zander: You know, I just had an idea. I know this guy in Port Charles. He has tons of connections. If I take you to meet him, maybe you would find Janine right off the bat. What do you think?

[Sonny sighs]

Sonny: All this could have been taken care of if Mike had just told the truth.

Alexis: Maybe he's afraid to.

Sonny: Why can't people just be honest? I mean, Carly. Now this thing with Mike. I mean, what is --

Alexis: Sonny, Mike loves you very much. He wants you in his life, and maybe he's afraid that you'll pull away if you find out.

Sonny: He's done something and he's going to want for me to forgive him.

Alexis: You going to be able to do that?

Sonny: Well, you know, if it's something small, I'll get upset but I'll handle it. But, you know, if he betrays me in any way, then, you know, I -- I don't know if I can get past that.

Alexis: Maybe he knows that.

Sonny: He thinks that I'll change, but I wonít.

Alexis: That's a part of who you are.

Sonny: Some people can't accept that.

Alexis: I can.

Sonny: I know.

Courtney: Who's this guy with all the connections?

Zander: He's my boss. I can vouch for him.

Courtney: Okay. But who's going to vouch for you?

Zander: You think a serial killer could fix a lemon like that?

Courtney: Maybe I should take my tire iron with me just in case.

Zander: That's fine, that's fine. I'm not going to make any sudden moves.

Courtney: Good.

Zander: After you.

Sonny: So, I'll see you tomorrow.

Alexis: Yeah. Don't stay up all night brooding.

Sonny: I don't brood.

Alexis: Yeah, you brood. You brood.

Sonny: I'm going to bed right now.

Alexis: Good. Hey --

Sonny: Yeah?

Alexis: If you decide that you want a meeting with Janine or Mike and just need some support -- legal, friendly, or otherwise -- you call me anytime.

Sonny: You know, you say something like that, somebody might take you up on it.

Alexis: That's what friends are for. You're a good cook.

Sonny: Hey, hey, hey -- that means a lot.

Roy: I want to thank you again for inviting me to Thanksgiving.

Bobbie: Oh, well, I'm glad you could make it. I only wish I had.

Roy: Yeah, you -- you missed a great meal.

Bobbie: So I heard.

Roy: It was classy of you, considering all the stuff that came down between us. And I just want you to know that I really appreciate it.

Bobbie: Roy, I'm not angry at you. You know that, don't you?

Roy: Well, I -- I know that it was painful, the way we broke up. And however it happened, I know I hurt you.

Bobbie: I'm not looking to blame anyone. It wasn't meant to be.

Roy: Bobbie, if there's ever anything I can ever do for you, please ask.

Bobbie: Well, you're a decent man. I'd like to think that we could still be friends.

Roy: We have too much in common not to be.

Bobbie: Mm-hmm. And we have my brother --

Roy: Yeah.

Bobbie: In common.

Roy: But, I mean, beyond that, I care about you. I always have.

Bobbie: Thank you for that. And I bet if anyone can pull a future off together, it's Luke and Laura. So I want to wish them all the luck in the world on this love boat cruise of theirs.

Roy: To Luke and Laura.

Laura: Okay. I guess I do like risk -- sometimes.

Luke: All right. Now we're getting somewhere.

Laura: But that doesn't mean that I'm ready to get remarried.

Luke: Well, in that case, I guess I'll just have to call down, order a couple more bottles of this, and stay up all night until I break down all your defenses.

Laura: No, Luke. I want to take this slowly.

Luke: How slow?

Laura: Well -- I'd at least like to sleep on it.

Luke: Oh. Okay. I can help you with that.

Laura: How?

Luke: By sleeping with you. We never had a problem with that.

Laura: Stop it.

Luke: Two can --

Laura: That won't help!

Luke: Two can sleep sounder than one. Never forget.

Laura: Oh, no. Luke, I don't want to get confused. Really, I want to -- I want to think clearly about this.

Luke: Okay. I respect you for that.

Laura: Thanks.

Luke: I'll just say good night, then, and get out of your way.

Laura: Thanks.

Luke: Good night.

Laura: Good night.

Laura: You're not playing fair.

Luke: I guess I didn't read the rules of the game.

Laura: Didn't you tell me that you were willing to change?

Luke: To a degree.

Laura: Well, I really do want to be alone tonight.

Luke: Okay. Sweet dreams.

Laura: Thanks. You, too.

[Door closes]

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Luke: I won't break your heart again, I swear, Laura.

Carly: You've got to tell Sonny because otherwise he might be hearing it from somebody else.

Zander: This is Courtney, the girl I told you about.

Courtney: I hope we're not interrupting.

Sonny: Not at all. I was expecting you.
