>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Kristina: There's nothing going on between me and Ned.

Alexis: I wasn't thinking anything.

Edward: I'd like for you to call my family after all.

Sonny: I want to speak to Courtney alone.

Janine: I'll be out in the hall.

Lucky: At the stroke of midnight 2002, we'll be husband and wife.

Luke: Whether you accept my proposal or not, you are the one great love of my life.

Luke: Hey, Laura?

Laura: Yeah?

Luke: Shh, shh. Just do as I say now, and don't ask any questions.

Laura: What's with the rope?

Luke: That's a question.

Laura: Hey, look. There's a rope.

Luke: Good. Really good. Okay, take the rope, hang on to the rope, don't let it go. The rope is your friend; the rope is your savior. The rope is a twine --

Laura: I get it, I get it.

Luke: Link to the future. Okay, you got it? Then go ahead because time is a-wasting.

Laura: Time is a-wasting.

Luke: Just follow the rope.

Laura: Follow the rope. Ooh, you're so fresh!

Luke: Follow the rope.

[Laura laughs]

Luke: You're not taking this very seriously.

Laura: Well, how can I?

Luke: Wait till you see the other side. It's serious.

Laura: Really?

Luke: Follow the rope.

Ned: Kristina? Hey.

Kristina: Hi. You wanted to see me?

Ned: Yes. Well, I wanted to know if you had a chance to listen to that music that I gave you.

Kristina: Oh, I haven't yet, actually, with the holidays and all.

Ned: Yeah. Well, speaking of holidays, do you have plans for New Year’s?

Kristina: Who wants to know?

Ned: Well, my family is throwing a New Year’s party at the Port Charles Grill. And, scary as that sounds, I was wondering if you'd like to go with me.

Kristina: Oh, you know what? I'm sorry, Ned. I actually have plans for New Year’s with Alexis.

Alexis: Since when?

Sonny: You all right?

Courtney: Yeah.

Sonny: Where did you stay when you left?

Courtney: Around. My car, mostly.

Sonny: You cold?

Courtney: A little.

Sonny: When did you eat?

Courtney: What did my mother want?

Sonny: When did you eat?

Courtney: Why are you doing this? You don't even know me.

Sonny: Okay, I'll tell you why I'm doing it. One reason. You're family now.

Gia: Can you believe Lucky and Elizabeth?

Nikolas: Never seen her so happy.

Gia: Yeah, but getting married on New Year’s Eve?

Nikolas: They love each other. Why not?

Gia: So, then, you think it's a good idea?

Nikolas: Well, Lucky's been telling us to elope since day one.

Gia: Okay, so why aren't he and Elizabeth in front of the Justice of the Peace right now?

Nikolas: Elizabeth wants a real wedding.

Gia: So why doesn't she give herself some time to plan more?

Nikolas: It's their wedding, not ours.

Gia: So you're happy for them?

Nikolas: Yes, I am very happy.

Gia: Well, you don't seem joyous.

Nikolas: I will be, okay?

Gia: When?

Nikolas: God, will you stop, please?

Gia: You know, I picked up on some pretty serious vibes between you and Lucky.

Nikolas: Okay, so is that unusual? What?

Gia: Nik, what's going on?

Elizabeth: I'm sorry that took so long. Aren't you freezing? Button up.

Lucky: Oh, yeah. Thank you.

Elizabeth: What's the matter? Can't stop thinking about our wedding?

Lucky: Yeah. That's it.

Elizabeth: Let me ask you something. Do you think it's a bad idea that I have Gia as my maid of honor?

Lucky: Not if Nikolas is around.

Elizabeth: Okay. You think your mom is going to mind us getting married in her living room?

Lucky: Are you kidding me? She's going to be thrilled. She's going to love it.

Elizabeth: I can't believe we're actually doing this.

Lucky: You believed in me more than anyone. You never gave up on me. You put your life on the line.

Elizabeth: I'd do it again.

Lucky: Even when I thought our love was gone.

Elizabeth: I knew better.

Lucky: Well, by this time New Year’s, you will be my Mrs. Lucky Spencer.

Elizabeth: I love the way that sounds.

Lucky: I do, too.

Laura: I found it! Luke?

[Engine starts]

[Engine revs]

Luke: Happy New Year, baby! Let's go for a ride.

Edward: Well, I want it down here immediately, and if you can't, I'll find somebody here who ca--

Melissa: You're supposed to be resting.

Edward: Where are my test results?

Melissa: I put a rush on them and I've reached everyone in your family except for Ned, so they should be here any minute.

Edward: You know, you've -- you've been a tremendous help.

Alan: Father.

Edward: Not that you care.

Monica: Where's his chart?

Melissa: Right here. I put a rush on his second set of cardiac enzymes.

Monica: What happened?

Edward: You tell her, Alan. You were there. I nearly collapsed right in front of him and A.J.

Monica: What, and you didn't do anything?

Alan: I thought he was faking.

Edward: The pain was almost unbearable.

Monica: Well, how did you get here?

Edward: An angel found me.

A.J.: Nice work, Grandfather.

Melissa: A.J., your grandfather had an angina attack at the park.

Alan: You were in the park?

Melissa: I just happened to be there --

Edward: Thank God.

Melissa: And then Roy called 911, and now he's here under observation.

Alan: Father, I'm so sorry.

Edward: I have an announcement to make. It's a matter of life or death.

Skye: Care to enlighten us?

Edward: I would like you all to -- oh, no, no, no, no. We have to -- we have to wait till Ned gets here because I may only have the strength to say this once.

Kristina: Well, of course we have plans for New Year’s. You just don't know about it yet.

Alexis: I see.

Kristina: You hate New Year’s, don't you?

Alexis: Did you tell her that?

Kristina: How could I possibly let you stay all by yourself in your lonely apartment drinking stale champagne and -- and wearing fuzzy socks that don't even match?

Alexis: My fuzzy socks match.

Kristina: Look, we're going to order Chinese food, we are going to get a romantic comedy, we'll get those hats and the noisemakers and watch the ball drop.

Alexis: That's very nice, Kristina.

Kristina: We'll be so happy we found each other. We'll have a great time.

Alexis: I have a date.

Kristina: Really?

Ned: Well, looks like you are stuck with the Quartermaines.

Alexis: See? Problem solved.

Kristina: So who do you think that Alexis has a date with?

Ned: Well, let's just hope the F.B.I. doesn’t show up.

[Phone rings]

Ned: Hello? What's wrong? I'm on the way.

Kristina: Ned?

Ned: I'll be at the hospital.

Alexis: What happened?

Kristina: I don't know. He said something about the hospital.

Alexis: Did he say who?

Kristina: No. Do you think that we should go follow him?

Alexis: No, no. Not yet.

Kristina: Well, anyways -- so, Alexis, who is the lucky guy you're taking for New Year’s?

Alexis: What?

Kristina: Are you going to take Sonny?

Alexis: Why would I take Sonny?

Kristina: Well, you said that -- that, you know, you have a date and --

Alexis: Kristina, I don't have a date with anybody.

Sonny: There's minestrone in the kitchen.

Courtney: That's, like, with vegetables, right?

Sonny: What would you rather have?

Courtney: Do you think my parents are listening through the door?

Sonny: Doesn't matter.

Courtney: My dad -- our dad -- he gets on your nerves, doesn't he?

Sonny: Yeah.

Courtney: He ditched you, too?

Sonny: In Brooklyn a long time ago.

Courtney: Where's your mom?

Sonny: It's not your concern.

Courtney: Even though I'm family?

Sonny: That's right.

Courtney: Daddy could be a lot of fun, though. Did he used to take you places and, like, spend all the money so you had to walk home?

Sonny: He did that to you, too, huh? Right.

Courtney: Once we spent our last $2 on cotton candy. He thought he had a five in his pocket for the bus, but he didn’t. Something about a crap game. It wasn't really that far. Mike made it like an adventure, promised to take me for a hike.

Sonny: And he was gone the next morning.

Courtney: I used to go looking for him. Did you?

Sonny: If you don't want minestrone, you want a steak? Omelet?

Courtney: You pretty much change the subject anytime you feel like it, don't you?

Sonny: You're cold. You need to eat.

Courtney: I know.

Sonny: There's a guest room upstairs, okay? Take a shower, get cleaned up.

Courtney: Are you married?

Sonny: What do you like on your omelet?

Courtney: That is so cool. You don't like the question -- zap -- it's like nobody even asked.

Sonny: Cheese or spinach?

Courtney: Drives people crazy, right?

Sonny: Sometimes, yeah.

Courtney: How about a peanut butter sandwich?

Sonny: You need something warm.

Courtney: Could you fry it in butter like Elvis, with bananas?

Sonny: Whatever you want.

Courtney: Thanks.

Janine: Well, how long do we have to stand out here?

Mike: Will you keep it down?

Janine: Hey, what's going on in there?

Sonny: Hey, hey, can you -- can you be quiet?

Janine: Sure. Where's my little girl?

Sonny: She's upstairs.

Janine: Courtney, come on, let's go!

Sonny: Okay, whoa. That's enough. Here's your choice -- you either stay quiet or you leave.

Janine: I have something I have to talk to you about. Alone.

Luke: You want to clear your head? You want to think about the future? No better way to do it than with your arms wrapped around me and the wind just burning into our faces.

Laura: How did you get that in the living room, and why on the carpet?

Luke: Oh, don't worry about the carpet. I'll buy you a new one. Open your present.

Laura: You know, I'm almost afraid to now.

Luke: No, there's nothing in there that's going to blow up. I hope.

[Luke laughs]

Laura: Oh, of course.

Luke: There you go. All the adventure you can handle and fashionable safety, as well.

Laura: Very cool. Okay, so where's yours?

Luke: Mine is right here. Here we go. Hop on.

Laura: Where? Where are we going?

Luke: Oh, your choice. Behind door number one, Harry’s Hog Heaven.

Laura: What's door number two?

Luke: Beecher's Corners. Hot cider, moonshine, and that great barn dance on New Year’s Eve.

Laura: I like that.

Luke: Me, too. So we're hand in hand. We're walking down memory lane. We're reliving good times.

Laura: What about new times?

Luke: That's my girl. Come on, hop on.

Laura: What, now?

Luke: No better time than now.

Laura: Okay, I'll give it a try.

Luke: Give it a try.

Laura: Oh, wow. It's cool.

Luke: Uh-huh.

Laura: Where do you put your feet?

Luke: There's those little foot stops there for your feet. Find them?

Laura: Yeah.

Luke: Okay?

Laura: Okay.

Luke: All right, put your arms around me. Oh, yeah. See, that feels really good.

Laura: So now what?

Luke: Now we just rev her up and take off.

Laura: Where?

Luke: Anywhere. With you, anywhere.

Lucky: Mom? Hey, mom?

Laura: Hey.

Lucky: Hey.

Elizabeth: Hey.

Lucky: Why is there a motorcycle in the middle of the living room?

Laura: Well, you can ask your father that.

Lucky: Dad?

Luke: We're redecorating. We're going for that auto repair shop look.

Lucky: Fair enough.

Elizabeth: It is so great to be back.

Lucky: We're getting married.

Laura: You what? You're getting married?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Laura: Wow! When? Spring, maybe? In June?

Lucky: No. New Year’s Eve.

Laura: This New Year’s Eve?

Elizabeth: Yes. Yes. Can you believe it?

Laura: I -- I don't know what to say.

Luke: Say "Congratulations."

Laura: Oh, yes, yes, of course. Congratulations.

Elizabeth: Thank you.

Lucky: So --

Laura: That's wonderful, but can you even get Mount Hebron that quickly?

Lucky: Well, no, no. We're actually thinking about having it here in the living room. Minus the bike.

Laura: Oh.

Luke: Oh, no, the bike's got to stay. It's central to the whole furniture scheme.

Elizabeth: So, what do you think? Would that be okay?

Laura: Oh, nothing would make me happier. That's great.

Lucky: Dad? Is that okay by you?

Luke: Sure. It's particularly okay if I can get a two-for-one.

Lucky: What do you mean?

Luke: Lucky/Elizabeth and Luke and Laura. What do you say?

Nikolas: Nothing is going on with lucky, okay? Now, we have a lot of work to do, so let's do it.

Gia: Okay, stop me when this sounds familiar. Lucky's in trouble, Nikolas knows all about it, and, well, nobody trusts Gia --

Nikolas: It isn't like that, Gia.

Gia: Well, then tell me what it is like.

Nikolas: It's not my place, all right?

Gia: Nikolas, we can't keep secrets from each other. Not now, okay? Just, please, let me help.

Nikolas: Fine. You have to promise me you will not say anything. You have to promise me that, Gia.

Gia: I promise.

Nikolas: Lucky -- he doesn't love Elizabeth anymore.

Lucky: You guys are getting married, too?

Luke: Yes, we are. Aren't we?

Laura: Uh, we're not -- we're not rushing into anything.

Luke: Well, I thought this was a woman's fantasy -- a double wedding with your son and me standing there in front of the fire wearing something uncomfortable while the two of you float down the stairs like a couple of angels.

Laura: I think we should take one wedding at a time.

Luke: But that's "yes" to two weddings, yes?

Laura: That's "give me a little time here."

Luke: Well, okay, if that's what you need.

Laura: Stop it. You know what? Nothing would make me happier than to have you and Elizabeth get married right here. It's just that it's -- it's very sudden, that's all.

Lucky: Well, when you know what you want, you go after it. Right? You taught me that.

Luke: You were listening.

Lucky: Yes.

Elizabeth: Lucky and I have loved each other for so long, we are ready for a lifetime commitment.

Laura: Well, I'm very proud of both of you.

Elizabeth: Thank you. So, I was thinking -- white roses, a few candles --

Laura: Boy, I'm just glad I have Elton on my speed dial. All right, tell me what you want.

Luke: Well, so much for hog heaven, Harry’s Hog Heaven.

Lucky: Up by Niagara Falls?

Luke: You know it?

Lucky: Yeah, I'm just having a hard time picturing Mom there.

Luke: I'm having a hard time picturing you married. Come here. You mind telling me why you're so hell-bent on falling face-forward into wedlockdown?

Edward: Stop staring at me.

Alan: What's his blood pressure?

Edward: As if you cared.

Ned: Grandfather?

Edward: What took you so long?

Ned: What happened?

Alan: He had chest pains.

Monica: Well, the tests aren't in yet.

A.J.: He's faking it. Can't you tell?

Skye: I had nothing to do with it.

Melissa: Please, everyone. He needs quiet.

Edward: Thank you. I'm so grateful that you could all find time to be here.

A.J.: Grandfather has an announcement to make.

Skye: This ought to be good.

Edward: I'm changing my will.

A.J.: You're cutting me out, right?

Edward: You're all out. And Nurse Bedford is in.

Mike: If you're going to discuss my daughter, I'm sticking around.

Janine: It's a little late for sticking around.

Sonny: Mike, can you wait in the kitchen?

Janine: The sooner, the better.

Sonny: Courtney wants a peanut butter sandwich fried in butter or something, I don't know.

Mike: With bananas.

Janine: We supposed to be all impressed now that you remembered that?

Sonny: What do you want?

Janine: Hey, you know, this, I'm sure, is a very painful, difficult situation for you. I can make it all go away.

Sonny: I'm listening.

Janine: Write me a big, fat check. You never have to deal with me or Courtney again.

Nikolas: Lucky remembers what it was like to love her, but now he just --

Gia: Well, maybe they're just not in sync.

Nikolas: He doesn't love her, Gia, and it's my fault.

Gia: Why is that?

Nikolas: I asked Helena to make him stop loving her. And I certainly -- I don't know. I didn't believe that she could really do it.

Gia: Well, you were trying to save his life.

Nikolas: I still should have found a better way.

Gia: Does Elizabeth know what happened?

Nikolas: Elizabeth was -- she was there, but she thinks that he got over it.

Gia: So she believes that he loves her?

Nikolas: Look, Elizabeth cannot know the truth. Not now. I mean, Lucky still thinks that it may come back.

Gia: Well, what if it doesn't?

Nikolas: He says he owes her a perfect life, Gia.

Gia: You can't possibly let your brother go through with this. Come on, Nikolas. They can't get married.

Luke: Oh, there is something so satisfying about seeing a hog in the front yard.

Lucky: Yeah, well, as cool as it is, I don't think Mom is going to like the idea.

Luke: She'll like it better than in the living room.

Lucky: We'll see.

Luke: You made her very happy wanting to get married in the house.

Lucky: There's no wanting about it. It's happening. Elizabeth and I are getting married. We actually love each other more than we ever have.

Luke: Okay, if you're sure.

Elizabeth: I have never been more sure about anything in my life.

Laura: Well, that's good because building a life together really is a hard thing to do.

Elizabeth: And are you and Luke going to try it again?

Laura: Oh, I don't know. He's just -- he's on a marriage tangent.

Elizabeth: But you do love him.

Laura: I do. Yes, of course I do. I always will. But that does not necessarily mean that I should marry him -- not now and maybe not even ever.

Elizabeth: You think it's too soon for me and Lucky, don't you?

Laura: I think that you've been through a lot.

Elizabeth: Exactly, so why wait another second? Laura, you know I am always going to love him.

Lucky: Elizabeth and I love each other, all right?

Luke: All right. What's the rush?

Lucky: You don't think I'm over it, do you? You think Helena did something to me.

Luke: I just think you need a little more time.

Lucky: No. Elizabeth loves me, I love her. Helena can't change that. No one can change that ever. Elizabeth believed in me. She never gave up.

Luke: Where in all that is a reason to get hitched?

Laura: Lulu has been raiding my jewelry box lately -- you know, playing dress-up and everything -- so I hid this down here. But I would like to give it to you now for your wedding.

Elizabeth: Oh. Thank you.

Laura: Open it.

Elizabeth: A heart and a clover. It's beautiful.

Laura: Oh, good, I'm glad you like it. You know, Lucky was born when we were living on a ranch in Texas. And there was a terrible, terrible storm that night and we were not able to get to the hospital. It was just Luke and me and it was pretty scary, but we made it, you know? And when I woke up in the morning, I found that on my pillow, and Luke said it was to remind me that with a little bit of luck and a lot of love that we could weather any storm. And I want you to have it now. I want to give it to you for --

Elizabeth: For happiness.

Lucky: Why can't Elizabeth and I be happy?

Luke: I'm not saying you can’t. That's not what I'm saying.

Lucky: You love Mom more some times than other times, right?

Luke: Well, right. You know, that's natural. Marriage is tough. You just have to know you've got enough love going in.

Lucky: Oh, we do. We sure do, yeah.

Luke: Lucky, there's not a day of my life goes by that I don't think maybe you, your mother, Lulu, and me -- we'd all be better off, maybe, if I just got on a bike like this and rode the hell out of here.

Lucky: I'm not you, Dad. And I don't need this.

Laura: Lucky?

Lucky: I'm all right. He's not.

Laura: You want to fly out of here? What's stopping you?

Alan: You can't do this.

Skye: I'm calling an attorney.

Monica: You're not thinking clearly, Edward.

Ned: Is he on drugs?

A.J.: You planned this from the start, didn't you?

Melissa: Okay, please, everyone.

A.J.: What?

Melissa: Let's not upset the patient.

A.J.: What did you do to him?

Melissa: Nothing. I didn't even know about this. Please, Mr. Quartermaine, I don't want anything to do with this.

Skye: That's very noble of you.

Melissa: I just want you to get better, that's all.

Edward: That's more than I can say for them.

Alan: That isn't true.

Edward: Oh, Alan, when the pain hit, did you do anything to help? Were you concerned in the least? Hell, no. You wanted me to drop dead.

Monica: Oh, for Pete’s sake!

Edward: And, Monica -- Monica, you could have kept E.L.Q. out of the hands of the -- of the raiders and the thieves. But, oh, no, no, no, you voted against me and you allowed your husband's worst mistake to win.

Skye: Ouch.

Alan: What a terrible thing that is to say.

Monica: Okay, what about Emily?

Edward: I'll see that she's taken care of.

Skye: Never mind that I've made you all richer than ever since I took E.L.Q. public.

Edward: How long do you think that money will last with Jasper Jacks in control, huh? He's probably selling off shares as we speak. And you people, you're going to be left with nothing. No money and no family business. And no family, for that matter. Except for Lila. She'll have half my estate when I die, and Ms. Bedford will have the rest.

Ned: Okay, Grandfather. Tell us what you want.

Edward: Can you give me back E.L.Q.? Can you keep my heart from breaking? Can you get little Michael home? You people voted me out of my company and you cast me aside and you took all my money. Don't expect me to reward you for it.

A.J.: I think he means it.

Edward: My lawyer is on his way here with my new will. And once I sign it, you're all on your own.

Sonny: You want me to give you money to take my sister away?

Janine: You don't even know Courtney. I'll take good care of her. I'll make sure she goes to college, assuming we can afford it.

Sonny: I see.

Janine: I want what's best for my daughter.

Sonny: You want her away from Mike.

Janine: Damn straight. I may not be a perfect mother, but I never abandoned my kid.

Sonny: No, but you tried to extort from me before.

Janine: See, you misunderstood all that.

Sonny: My attorney didn't.

Mike: And Sonny has the best attorney in the business.

Janine: Hmm.

Mike: And if she finds out that you blackmailed Edward Quartermaine --

Janine: I cannot help it if the old man overreacted.

Sonny: You slept with Edward Quartermaine for a financial gain. There's a name for that. I think it's called --

Janine: I never slept --

Sonny: No?

Janine: With him, no. All I did was help escort him upstairs to his room and make sure that I had a negligee on when he woke up.

Mike: In other words, you conned him.

Janine: Oh, Mike, if you hadn't gambled away Courtney’s college money, none of this would have happened. Now, Edward Quartermaine comes in the casino a lot, and he drops more money in one night than I make in a year. So I figure he can afford to pay for a mistake. I just helped him think he made one.

Sonny: Very enterprising.

Janine: Well, thank you. I saw a chance, I took it, I don't regret it.

Sonny: You might. You're looking at serious trouble here -- blackmail, extortion. And now you're offering to make your own daughter disappear. What kind of mother are you? You know what you are?

Janine: What do you mean, "disappear"?

Sonny: You're a tramp!

Janine: What are you --

Courtney: What have you done?

Courtney: Is that the scam? You want money to make me disappear? To keep me away from my father, my brother?

Janine: I raised you. I was there for you every day. I did the work.

Sonny: You know what? You don't want to get into this. Your sandwich is getting cold. Why don't you go eat your sandwich?

Courtney: At least somebody cares.

Mike: I used to make them for you all the time.

Courtney: I remember.

Janine: Yeah, well, I don't remember.

Courtney: How much money do you need, Mom? What's the going rate for keeping me away from the rest of my family?

Janine: Baby girl, I'm doing all of this for you.

Courtney: Dad used to say that all the time, right?

Mike: That was a long time ago.

Janine: All right, we can work all of this out. Just you and me, like always. If that's okay with your brother.

Kristina: Are you sure that you don't want company on New Year’s Eve?

Alexis: I do not need someone to sit home and coddle me or wear a funny hat or throw confetti. I hate confetti. It's messy. And I don't want you turning down dates because of me.

Kristina: Even with Ned?

Alexis: Ned's a lot of fun.

Kristina: Oh, Alexis, come on. I mean, that's beside the point.

Alexis: No, the point is I'm perfectly capable of bringing in the New Year all by myself. Okay?

Kristina: You are so not okay.

Edward: I need some time alone with Melissa.

Alan: This must be breaking hospital policy.

Ned: Let's go.

Skye: Oh, what, and let them dream up another plan?

Edward: Go! You're all vultures.

Monica: We'll be in the hall, Edward, if you need us.

Alan: I really think he's lost his marbles.

Edward: And I'll be here with my only friend.

Melissa: Mr. Quartermaine --

Edward: Mm-hmm.

Melissa: If you want to shut your family out, why don't you just donate the money to the hospital? You could have a wing named after yourself. You could pick a charity, you could save the whales. Please --

Edward: I'm giving the money to you.

Melissa: No, but you don't understand. This could ruin my whole career.

Edward: Oh, you'll be so rich it won't even matter.

Amy: Excuse us, excuse us, excuse us. Witnesses coming through. Witnesses are here. We've arrived.

Edward: It took you long enough.

Man: It was fairly short notice, Sir, and I had to round up the witnesses.

Edward: All right.

Amy: And exactly what are we witnessing?

Edward: I'm leaving half my estate to Nurse Bedford.

Amy: Whoa. Way to go, girl.

Melissa: I don't want the money.

Alan: There has got to be some way that you can stop him from signing this.

Edward: Shh, shh. Where do I sign? Right here?

Man: Mm-hmm.

Edward: All right.

Luke: You. You stop me. Every time when I miss the curve when I'm headed for the cliff, you stop me before I plunge over. You keep me on the road. You always have.

Laura: But that's just it. You will always want to live on the road and I will always want to stay close to home.

Luke: But I love you anyway.

Laura: Let's go in.

Lucky: Mom told you about the storm when I was born?

Laura: Mm-hmm.

Luke: We used to get really filthy weather down in Texas.

Lucky: I can't believe you hung on to this thing.

Laura: Well, you know me. I save everything.

Elizabeth: I still don't know how to thank you.

Laura: No thanks necessary. Just be happy.

Elizabeth: Oh, we will.

Lucky: We are.

Elizabeth: Well, we have tons of work to do, so --

Lucky: So you'd like to get going?

Elizabeth: Yes.

Lucky: All right.

Laura: Please keep me informed, all right?

Lucky: We will.

Laura: I love you.

Lucky: I love you.

Laura: I'm happy for both of you.

Elizabeth: Thank you.

Lucky: Thanks.

Elizabeth: There you go. We'll see you soon.

Laura: Okay.

Lucky: See you.

Luke: Ciao.

Laura: Here we are, in the house you hate.

Luke: Well, yeah, this is the house. But out front there's a great bike just waiting to roll. What do you say we jump on? We'll pit stop in the next county over. We'll find a courthouse and then a justice of the peace and --

Laura: You want to elope?

Luke: Absolutely. Right now. And then we'll head out west and we won't even look back.

Alan: Don't sign it!

Monica: He isn't going to.

Ned: It's the pen.

A.J.: It doesn't work?

Alan: The lawyer gave him a new one.

Skye: Oh, I hate lawyers.

Monica: He's signing.

Alan: He did it.

Ned: Don't worry. He'll write us back in.

Alan: I wouldn't be too sure.

Edward: You can leave now. It's all over.

[Edward laughs]

A.J.: He's not going to get away with this. No way.

Sonny: Okay, you can go with your mother if you want. She's staying at a place that I own. You need to rest, so --

Courtney: Okay, I'll try.

Janine: We have a lot to straighten out.

Courtney: Don't count on it.

Sonny: Johnny? Ahem. Take them back, will you?

Johnny: Yes, Sir.

Courtney: Thank you.

Sonny: No problem.

Courtney: You did all right on that sandwich.

Mike: Sonny --

Sonny: We're finished here.

Mike: Not even close.

Alexis: These socks match. Kind of. All right. I can be alone. I know how to be alone. It's just one night. New Year’s Eve -- big deal.

[Knock on door]

Alexis: What'd you forget?

Sonny: I need you.

Alexis: You got me.

Nikolas: Gia, don't make me sorry I told you this.

Gia: But if Lucky doesn't really love her --

Nikolas: It's Lucky's call. All right? Not mine.

Gia: How can we stand up at their wedding when we know?

Nikolas: Look, whatever you're thinking, don't. Okay?

Elizabeth: Hey. So, we're having the wedding at Laura's house.

Lucky: Yeah, Mom seems to think that it's a great idea.

Elizabeth: Everything is set and ready to go.

Gia: No, it isn't.

Elizabeth: What's that supposed to mean?

Laura: My life is here. I can't just ride off on a motorcycle. I have a small child to raise and another child to plan a wedding for. I really would like Lucky and Elizabeth to have a wedding like we had, to have a life like we had.

Luke: What do we have now?

Laura: I wish I knew. I --

Luke: Darling, I think you do know. We can't wish away our feelings. We can't save them for another day. They can't wait. Laura, marry me one more time.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Roy: Edward Quartermaine is giving you all his money?

Melissa: Yes!

A.J.: Melissa Bedford, innocent? She's a snake in the grass.

Elizabeth: What do you mean, everything's not set for the wedding? What's wrong?

Luke: You haven't said no. How long are you going to keep me hanging?

Alexis: You're not alone. I'm with you all the way.
