>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Edward: I want them arrested.

Mac: You have the right to remain silent.

Alan: You stop this right now!

Taggert: Janine Matthews.

Janine: What do you want?

Taggert: You're under arrest.

Luke: I never gave you an engagement ring. That one jumped out the window singing your name.

Lucky: How am I supposed to get back what you two took away?

Sonny: You aren't taking these women anywhere.

Taggert: I wouldn't be so sure about that, Sonny boy.

Alexis: May I see a warrant, please?

Taggert: The warrant is on its way.

Alexis: Which means you don't have it.

Taggert: I will have one soon. And in case you're wondering, Edward Quartermaine is pressing the charges -- yeah, that's right -- of blackmail, conspiracy, and fraud against Ms. Matthews.

Janine: I don't believe this.

Taggert: Well, you better believe it.

Alexis: Are these charges similar to the robbery and assault charges that the Quartermaines brought against Zander Smith for the attack that never happened?

Taggert: I got a restaurant full of people saying they saw you -- yeah, you -- accusing your mother of being a fraud. Huh?

Alexis: I believe that would be the Port Charles Grill. That restaurant is owned by the Quartermaines. Edward's been known to pay off a witness before.

Courtney: I didn't mean to get you arrested.

Janine: Oh, sweetie --

Sonny: Courtney, don't say anything else.

Taggert: You know, that wouldn't be the best advice.

Sonny: Well, who pays you to give advice, Taggert?

Taggert: You see, Sonny here -- he has a habit of looking out for himself and nobody else.

Alexis: Thank you for your insight, Lieutenant. But without a warrant, you're finished here.

Taggert: When are you going to stop doing the dirty work for this gangster, huh?

Alexis: Please give Edward my regards.

Taggert: I'll be back.

Sonny: Tell your surveillance people that, you know, we're planning a quiet evening at home.

Taggert: Thanks for your cooperation, Sonny.

Sonny: Any time there, Taggert.

Janine: Can Edward Quartermaine really send me to prison?

Sonny: Yes, and he'll use your daughter to do it.

Janine: Sorry, baby girl. I never meant for any of this to happen.

Sonny: I said I'd take care of it.

Janine: How?

Courtney: Forget how. Why?

A.J.: This is totally absurd.

Skye: Oh, those handcuffs are killing me!

Edward: Stop your whining. I want them put in jail immediately.

Alan: Calm down, will you, Father?

Edward: You keep talking like that, and I'll have you locked up with them.

Monica: Look, Skye is obviously guilty, but why are you pressing charges against A.J.?

Edward: A.J. was in on this blackmail from the start, and you know it.

Monica: If you don't drop all charges against my son, you are not spending another night in my house.

Edward: If it means that those two pay for stealing my company, I'll sleep on the street.

Melissa: This is completely absurd. You're all family.

Alan: Is anybody speaking to you?

Monica: What are you even doing here?

Skye: Who cares what you think?

Edward: Hey, Melissa is right.

Mac: Will all of you just quiet down.

Edward: Commissioner, Commissioner, I have a -- I have a suggestion. There may be a way to resolve this problem and save everyone a lot of trouble.

Mac: I'm listening.

Melissa: Thank goodness. Maybe we can finally reach a compromise.

Edward: I am willing to drop all charges if Melissa lets me adopt her.

Monica: What?

Skye: What?

Monica: What are you talking about? Edward, you have lost your mind.

[Quartermaines all talk at once]

Helena: Well? What do you want?

Lucky: You won.

Helena: That must be why I'm in jail.

Lucky: I lost Elizabeth. For good this time.

Helena: Why does that surprise you?

Lucky: It doesn't. I just came to say good-bye to you, Helena.

Helena: Good-bye? How do you expect me to believe you?

Lucky: Oh, I'm leaving, yeah. I'm not going to come back.

Helena: I see.

Lucky: Oh, what's the point, really, you know? You erased all my love for Elizabeth. I've got nothing now.

Helena: Oh, lucky, lucky, lucky. We could still be working our magic together. If only you had believed in me.

Lucky: Give it back.

Helena: Don't make me call the guard.

Lucky: Give back what you stole from me, Helena.

Bobbie: Well, I'm just saying I really feel terrible for Elizabeth because, you know, she has loved lucky for so many years. The whole wedding just blew up in her face.

Scott: Well, that's -- that's not good.

Bobbie: Yeah. I mean, I really thought that the two of them had a chance to make it.

Scott: Well, now, you see, that's when things can really go haywire.

Bobbie: But you know what? I mean, I'm really glad she's not going to devote her entire life to somebody who can't love her back.

Scott: Must run in the family. How is Laura?

Bobbie: Scott -- you're not going to like this.

Scott: Well, I don't like much of anything these days.

Bobbie: You really want to know where Laura is?

Scott: Well, hit me.

Bobbie: She left town with Luke right after the interrupted wedding.

Scott: Well, hopefully, she took him to rehab. Where were they going?

Bobbie: I think they're getting back together for good.

Luke: So, here we stand at the walls of Jericho.

Oh. What magic is it that will bring this barrier tumbling down, I wonder?

Laura: You know, I can't remember.

Luke: Patience. It'll come to you. Close your eyes and listen to your heart.

Laura: My heart says be careful. Get back on your side.

Luke: Are you sure?

Laura: Yeah. Oh, sorry. You know, Luke, it's just that I know what loving you costs.

Luke: Hey, love always costs.

Laura: Well, I'm not sure that I can afford it right now.

Luke: Well, we could be home. You could be at the house alone. I could be at the club drunk and angry. Can we afford that?

Laura: It's been a long night.

Luke: You're -- you're just going to go to sleep now?

Laura: Yeah, I was. I was going to give it a try, yeah.

Luke: Ok. Go ahead.

Laura: Good night.

Luke: Honey, you know, we don't always have to relive the past.

Laura: Well, isn't that what you want, Luke?

Luke: No, I don't, I don't. I want the future. I've blocked out most of the past, anyway.

Laura: Well, how are we going to learn from our past mistakes if you do that?

Luke: Oh, believe me, I'm very, very clear on the mistakes.

Laura: That's good. I do remember some of the good stuff.

[Laura laughs]

Luke: Well, that's great. I think between the two of us we remember everything.

Laura: So, then, are we a team?

Luke: We found our way back here, didn't we?

Laura: Ok. So, now what?

Luke: I don't know. I guess we'll just figure it out as we go.

Laura: No, no, no. Come on, I need some order here.

Luke: I know you do. And I need risk.

Laura: Oh, God. Not again.

Luke: Honey, nobody can promise certainty. Not in this world. I can only promise to love you.

Lucky: You're losing your touch, Helena.

Helena: Guard!

Lucky: She's not going to fall for that.

Helena: Do you love Elizabeth, Lucky?

Lucky: Oh, I will after we're finished today.

Helena: It's too late, Lucky.

Lucky: That's wrong. You will help me restore the light back to Elizabeth's eyes, and I will give her the life that I promised her, right?

Helena: I'm afraid that's not possible.

Lucky: You took my love for Elizabeth, Helena.

Helena: No. Your father took the best of my heart when he killed my favorite son. And now -- now I've killed the best of your heart, too.

Lucky: Give it back!

Helena: I can't change what I've done, even if I wanted to.

Lucky: Then you're lying.

Helena: Go ahead, Lucky. Do what's required. But you will never love Elizabeth again.

Nikolas: Lucky, let go.

Melissa: You want to adopt me?

Edward: You say yes, and I will drop all charges against these thieves.

Monica: We need to check his medication.

Alan: He should've stayed in the hospital.

Melissa: This is the craziest thing I have ever heard.

Mac: Oh, I knew it would be like this.

Edward: Take them off to jail.

Melissa: No, wait a minute. I don't want to be put in the middle of this.

Edward: My dear, you may very well have saved my life, and I'm just trying to show my gratitude.

Melissa: Edward, I just want to be a good nurse, that's all.

Edward: Why would you ever have to work again? You can have the kind of life that everybody dreams of -- the kind of life that my family doesn't appreciate.

Roy: Commissioner, you mind?

Mac: Go right ahead.

Edward: What are you doing here?

Roy: I'm here to stop you from harassing Melissa.

Edward: I am trying to make her life a little easier.

Roy: You're just using her against your family, but it's over as of now.

Melissa: Thank you.

Roy: You're welcome.

Edward: You are walking away from the best deal of your life, young lady.

Melissa: You know something? I would like to think that there is some kind of hope for all of you people. But you seem to enjoy hurting each other too much to stop.

Edward: So, are you ready to take my statement?

Alan: Ok, let's all just take a breath and calm down.

Edward: Why? Are you concerned about my heart? You afraid I'll collapse in front of you and you'll have to walk around me, hmm?

Alan: Father, you are starting something that you can't stop.

Edward: You started all this by welcoming that schemer into our family and handing all your shares to her.

Monica: Well, I agree with that.

Edward: You could've stopped all this, Monica. But no, you voted against me.

Monica: I was trying to support my husband and my son.

Edward: A fine excuse this late in the game. You people -- all of you -- stole my company. And when my heart broke in front of you, you did nothing because you didn't care.

Alan: That isn't what happened.

Edward: You've made your choices, folks, and now you're going to pay.

Mac: I'll take your statement now, Edward.

Edward: Fine.

Skye: Thanks for trying, dad.

Alan: I'm not doing this for you after the agony you've caused this family.

Skye: It was a business deal.

Alan: I don't want to hear anything from you! I was only trying to spare Rae some pain in case you go to prison.

A.J.: Nice going, dad. Really.

Mac: Can we save the drama for another time? Edward, please, let's get to that statement.

A.J.: Why are you bothering with grandfather? Why haven't you arrested Corinthos?

Edward: He has nothing to do with this.

A.J.: Janine Matthews is the one who blackmailed grandfather. I didn't. Neither did Skye. And she's with Sonny right now, and you put her there.

Sonny: I want us all ready when the warrant gets here. Prep Janine. I'll take care of Courtney.

Courtney: You're kind of experts at this, aren't you?

Janine: I wish I had never met that old coot.

Alexis: I wouldn't mention that to the police if I were you.

Janine: Why not? It's true.

Sonny: Ok, you know what? Whatever Alexis tells you to say, say it. Nothing more.

Alexis: Come on, Janine. We don't have a lot time.

Sonny: Ok, you understand you implicated yourself on new year's eve yelling at the Quartermaines?

Courtney: I wasn't exactly yelling.

Sonny: Taggert will use every word you said against your mother.

Courtney: You haven't answered my question.

Sonny: Do not say anything more to Taggert.

Courtney: Why are you helping me?

Sonny: Taggert likes to harass people I care about.

Courtney: Why?

Sonny: We've known each other for a long time.

Courtney: Why does he hate you so much?

Sonny: It doesn't matter. He'll use what he can to hurt me.

Courtney: Is that why you're helping me? To protect yourself?

Sonny: You need help. You're family now. There's nothing more to say.

Courtney: Wouldn't it be easier if I just -- if I just disappeared?

Sonny: No.

Courtney: Couldn't I just slip out on the service elevator --

Sonny: I can get you out of this if you stay quiet and don't run.

Courtney: Do the cops really have you under surveillance?

Sonny: I'm used to it.

Alexis: If they ask you a question and you're not sure of the answer, just say you don't know. Don't make a best guess.

Janine: I'll try to, but --

Sonny: Janine, if you don't know the answer, refer the question to Alexis.

Janine: Ok.

Courtney: Mom? Mom, I'm so sorry.

Janine: Oh, sweetie. I made the mistakes, not you.

Sonny: Ok, you know, I don't want to be insensitive, but we can't be seeing this at the police station, right, Alexis? Can you tell them?

Alexis: Emotion tends to make you look guilty.

Sonny: All right. We all clear?

Janine: Yeah. I'm ready.

[Knock on door]

Sonny: Courtney?

Taggert: Corinthos?

Courtney: Me, too.

Sonny: Counselor?

Alexis: All right. Have to go.


Taggert: Open the door.

Sonny: Come on in, Taggert.

Alexis: I assume you're prepared this time? Thank you.

Taggert: Ms. Matthews, you're under arrest for conspiracy, fraud, and extortion. If you'd be so kind, over here. You have the right to remain silent. If you give up that right, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

Courtney: Mom --

Taggert: You have the right to have an attorney present during questioning. If you cannot afford one, one will be appointed --

Alexis: I will be that attorney.

Taggert: Do you understand these rights as I've read them to you?

Janine: Yes.

Alexis: Do you have to cuff her? Is that excessive, Taggert?

Taggert: Standard procedure.

Alexis: You're arresting a mother right in front of her kid.

Taggert: Yeah, speaking of which -- you, let's go.

Alexis: Don't say anything to each other. I'll be right there. Is she going to be all right?

Sonny: Mike left her. Her mother's a mess. No kid should have to deal with that. Come on, she needs my help.

Alexis: Ok.

Sonny: Got everything?

Alexis: Yep. Thanks.

Sonny: Take that. Let's go.

Scott: Nothing like getting bad news all at once.

Bobbie: Well, you know, you said, "hit me," so --

Scott: Well, I didn't think you were going to give me a shoeshine here.

Bobbie: I know. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. But you know, Scott, sometimes you just have to let go.

Scott: You know, I bet you're one of those nurses that like to just rip the adhesive right off of the patients.

Bobbie: Yeah, for the ones who can take it.

Scott: Yeah, just -- just right off, right?

Bobbie: Right off when they ask me to, yes.

Scott: Well, what about the ones that don't want the adhesive ripped off?

Bobbie: Well, those I'm a little more careful with. But I always remind them -- the sooner you lose the bandages, the sooner you can heal.

Scott: Yeah, well, then if I'm healed up, then I'd have to let Laura go, now, wouldn't I?

Bobbie: Why are you holding on to this?

Scott: I don't know. Don't know, don't know, don't know.

Bobbie: Well, why, you know? Is Laura the one woman you couldn't keep? Or is it a grudge against my brother?

Nikolas: Let her go, Lucky.

Lucky: Why should I?

Nikolas: Because she is not worth it. Let go.

Helena: Thank you, Nikolas.

Nikolas: Don't thank me. I didn't come here to save you.

Lucky: If you came here to save me, don't bother.

Nikolas: Listen to me, Lucky.

Lucky: Just stay the hell away from me, Nikolas!

Helena: Go ahead, Nikolas. Try to help. After all, you're responsible.

Nikolas: You did this.

Helena: At your request. You wanted Elizabeth, remember?

Nikolas: It was a lie, grandmother.

Helena: You certainly convinced me. Although I'm not surprised. Cassadines are gifted liars.

Nikolas: I am nothing like my father. Don't you even --

Helena: Oh, Nikolas. Will you ever grow up?

Nikolas: I have, and you can't handle that.

Helena: Oh, my poor, naive grandson. You haven't the slightest idea what you're capable of doing.

A.J.: I was just trying to protect my grandfather.

Edward: That's a lie.

A.J.: Janine Matthews is obviously a gold digger.

Skye: My grandfather is vulnerable to the type.

Edward: Nothing happened between that floozy and me, and the little girl from the grill can tell us that. Why aren't you out looking for her?

A.J.: You put Janine with Sonny for protection. Why don't you admit that?

Mac: Did Sonny Corinthos threaten anyone?

Edward: No.

A.J.: He's harboring a criminal.

Skye: That's right.

Monica: A.J., Can't you see that Skye is using you? If she could blame all of this on sonny, then --

Skye: I didn't realize you were so overly fond of Sonny, Monica.

Monica: Sonny took Jason from me and now he has Michael, and the only thing I regret -- but I'm not surprised -- is that you were not able to seduce him because generally Sonny's girlfriends don't fare very well.

A.J.: Why haven't you arrested Sonny?

Edward: Because he has nothing to do with this.

A.J.: Why isn't he here now, Mac? Hmm? I mean, how many people have to disappear? How many more children does this guy get to steal? Now, stop wasting your time. Get him in here. We're innocent. He never will be.

Edward: There she is. The little girl from the grill. Good work, Lt. Taggert. Thank you.

Mac: How did Sonny get tangled up in this?

Alexis: My client is only here to help.

Edward: Janine Matthews set me up, didn't she? Now, you know the truth, dear. Just speak up. Just tell everyone.

Alexis: You are under no obligation to say anything.

Janine: All I did was go visit Mr. Quartermaine. And that one over there, she throws me in this fancy hotel room. And this one, she starts throwing money at me.

Taggert: Since when were you put under sonny's so-called care?

Alexis: Don't answer that.

Mac: What's your connection to Sonny Corinthos?

Alexis: Or that, either.

Mac: Did he threaten you?

Alexis: Or that.

Mac: Did he threaten you?

Alexis: Or that.

Edward: Why don't you just tell them the truth, dear?

Alexis: You don't have to say anything.

Mac: Whatever sonny promised you, it won't happen.

Taggert: Did he threaten you?

Alexis: If you're referring to my client, he did not.

Taggert: Why are you afraid to speak for yourself? Are you afraid of him?

Sonny: Courtney. Is my sister, ok?

Taggert: What?

Sonny: Yeah.

Edward: I'll be damned.

Sonny: Ms. Matthews is her mother. I'm just here trying to help.

[Everyone talks at once]

Alan: Oh, get out of here! Take a walk, will you?

Nikolas: You're threatening me now? From jail?

Helena: Nikolas. Nikolas, you're too young to be the prince. You know that. Everyone else knows it, too.

Nikolas: No. No, no, no, not everyone else. Stefan believes in me.

Helena: Oh, Stefan. You have no experience. You've got very little training. And once you start to feel that power --

Nikolas: Grandmother, I spent most of my life in training.

Helena: Oh, yes, I forgot. You are Nikolas, the good Cassadine.

Nikolas: That's right.

Helena: Oh, you will do some good things for a while. But after a while, confusion will set in.

Nikolas: I know the difference between right and wrong.

Helena: Ah, and that's why you asked me to erase Lucky's love for Elizabeth, hmm? Right and wrong are not simple, Nikolas. Once you have the power and the money and far too many people telling you that you are wonderful, what was once clear will become gray. And, oh, Nikolas, gray can be so seductive.

Nikolas: That will never happen.

Helena: Ah, it already has. Oh, you are on your way to becoming your father. Long live my darling prince.

Nikolas: Stop it. Stop it! Stand up!

Stand up!

Laura: I can't.

Luke: You need the wall, huh?

Laura: Maybe.

Luke: Maybe you need this exchanged for cinderblocks.

Laura: Oh, I don't know. That might be a good idea.

Luke: You're scared. It's ok.

Laura: You know what? What do -- how do you know that I'm scared? You know, I'm not like a little girl. I'm not the same little girl that I was all those years ago, the one who couldn't do anything without you by her side.

Luke: That's not the way I remember it.

Laura: Well, you know, back then I would have risked just about anything to be with you, and I am not that person today.

Luke: I told you, I think that who we are inside never changes. It's the only constant we can count on.

Laura: Well, I think you were wrong. We both were. We were wrong to try to go back to what we were. We can't go back.

Luke: But you still want me.

Laura: Don't tell me what I want.

Laura: Luke?

Luke: Hmm?

Laura: I'm just trying to figure all of this out.

Luke: I know. Should we forget the whole thing?

Melissa: You know what I like about you?

Roy: What's that?

Melissa: How you don't try to talk me out of how I feel.

Roy: Same here.

Melissa: Yeah. There's plenty of room on the bench.

Roy: Well, I don't want to invade your space or anything here.

Melissa: You're just trying to play hard-to-get. Sit down.

Roy: So you're ok with me saving you from the Quartermaines?

Melissa: Well, if you hadn't, I'd probably be locked up right now.

Roy: For what?

Melissa: Cracking Quartermaine heads together.

Roy: I'm not sure that's against the law.

Melissa: Edward is sweet. He is so sweet, but I wish he would just forget about me.

Roy: I don't think he can. He's smitten.

Melissa: Do you know he wants to adopt me?

Roy: That's a little frightening.

Melissa: A little. That's one thing, though. But, I mean, I wish he would just forget about this whole inheritance thing.

Roy: Yeah. Well, you got to be sure that's what you really mean because when you're talking Quartermaine money, you know, you're talking serious money.

Melissa: This kind of thing can ruin a career.

Roy: But he's entitled to give his share of it to whoever he wants, and you're as deserving as anybody else in his loving family. I mean, if you don't want to keep it for yourself, you could always give it to charity. I'm not saying that you should -- you should take the dough, but, you know, he does seem serious about this, so maybe you should be, too.

Melissa: No. I can't ever let this happen to me again.

Roy: "Again"?

Alan: I cannot believe the stuff that comes out of your mouth.

Monica: Since when do you have a sister?

Alan: And you believe him?

Monica: Don't you have enough money? You have to use your relatives to scam my family?

Alan: Why did you drag sonny into this?

Mac: Is that what happened?

Edward: You stole my company! I had to protect myself!

Mac: Edward, are you working with Sonny Corinthos?

Edward: Sure, sure. I've been a hoodlum all these years, right?

Alexis: Quartermaine issues have nothing to do with my client or his sister.

Taggert: If that's even who she is.

Sonny: I guess you're going to have to take my word for it, right?

Mac: Time out. I have other cases. This better not be just another Quartermaine family fight.

Edward: This woman robbed me blind using threats and coercion.

Skye: You're just a bad loser, grandfather. That's all.

Edward: Come on, dear. You know the truth. Just tell us!

Alexis: Do you really expect her to answer these questions in front of all of these people?

Mac: Meet me in room two.

Sonny: No, leave my sister out of this. She doesn't know anything about anybody.

Scott: Wait a second, what's wrong with holding on? I mean, I still believe in "love conquers all."

Bobbie: Well, yeah, but it takes two.

Scott: Well, that's true -- two people looking in the same direction. You know, Lucy just married Kevin.

Bobbie: I know, I know, and that can't be making this any easier for you.

Scott: No. No, no, it's not because I loved Lucy. But I had to let her go. I had to let Dominique go, and I will let Laura go when I'm ready. And it has nothing to do with your brother.

Bobbie: Good, ok. So you aren't holding a grudge against Luke.

Scott: Are -- are you crazy? Of course I'm holding a grudge! I mean, the guy took my wife! He had no respect for the institution of marriage, you know? I'm not fixated on Laura. I just -- I just don't like your brother, Bobbie.

Bobbie: Ok.

Scott: I'm just going to fixate on me now.

Bobbie: No argument here.

Scott: Ok. See, I'm never going to be alone.

Bobbie: That's true. That's true.

Scott: Right, because I got Serena. She's the apple of my eye.

Bobbie: And you have a lot of friends.

Scott: What else have I got?

Bobbie: You're a terrific lawyer.

Scott: That's right. I have swam with the sharks before. You know, I've got a lot going on. Not only do I have Serena, I've got two other great daughters. I've got Karen. She's a wonderful doctor. She thinks I'm the cat's meow. I've got Christina who I adopted, and I'm going to get to know her now. You know, I've got money. I can go to the Caribbean anytime I want. I'm never going to be alone with all that's going on. I mean, I've really got it made. How much of this are you buying?

Laura: You always do this to me.

Luke: If you can't take it, you can't take it.

Laura: See what I mean?

Luke: About what?

Laura: I'm trying to make a simple point here, ok? And instead of just listening to me and trying to understand me, you threaten to leave me.

Luke: I threatened to leave? When?

Laura: Just a little while ago. You said, "Oh, maybe we should forget the whole thing."

Luke: Well, shall we?

Laura: Can't you hear that that is a threat?

Luke: That was a question!

Laura: No, it's not. It's not a question. It means "rip down the walls of Jericho, otherwise I'm out of here."

Luke: Now who's telling who what they mean?

Laura: Ugh. Annoying, isn't it? Patronizing.

Luke: Look, you want me to go, just say it. I'll go.

Laura: You're doing it again.

Luke: That was a threat?

Laura: Yes, it's a threat! Can't you hear it?

Luke: I guess not.

Laura: I don't know -- maybe you're right, then.

Luke: Well, that'd be a first.

Laura: Well, maybe we -- maybe we can't do this, you know? Here we are all these years later with the walls of Jericho still hanging between us and, you know, how many kids later, how many screaming arguments later, how many affairs later?

Luke: I don't know. Two or three, maybe.

Laura: Well, what makes you think that you can just go back to what you had?

Luke: Laura, just tell me what you want me to do and I'll do it.

Laura: Oh, why do you always have to do something? Why don't you just sit there for five seconds, you know? Why don't give me a little room over here, let me get a little rest?

Luke: Good night.

Laura: Luke?

Luke: Hmm?

Laura: Good night.

Luke: Hmm.

Edward: Since when does Sonny Corinthos determine who gets questioned?

Alexis: He's well within his rights.

Edward: Dear, you told us the truth at the grill. Just tell us now.

Alan: Sonny has obviously gotten to her.

Alexis: My client is here as a courtesy, commissioner. I'd appreciate it if we kept it dignified.

Taggert: You know what? Everybody just needs to chill out.

Mac: We'd appreciate a statement from you.

Edward: Just tell us the truth, dear.

Courtney: Am I under arrest?

Mac: Not at all.

Sonny: You don't have to tell them anything.

Janine: Courtney, you do what you need to do.

Courtney: Then let's just get it over with.

Sonny: Ok, well, I'm going with her.

Mac: Not so fast.

Sonny: Then forget the statement, Mac.

Taggert: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What's the matter, Sonny? You afraid she's going to get it wrong?

Courtney: It's ok.

Alexis: I will make sure that she doesn't say anything to get her in trouble.

Taggert: Oh, all we want is the truth.

Janine: Just be careful, baby.

Sonny: You can leave that room any time you want.

Courtney: I understand.

Mac: This way.

A.J.: Sonny seems a little tense.

Skye: You think that she's really his sister?

A.J.: I think she's more of an Achilles' heel.

Taggert: Time to get booked.

A.J.: Oh, Taggert, come on. Janine is the criminal.

Taggert: Tell it to the judge.

A.J.: That's original.

Taggert: Oh, yeah, but it's so much fun to say.

A.J.: Yeah.

Skye: I want to call my lawyer.

Taggert: You're going to need a lawyer.

Skye: And the cuffs?

Taggert: Keep an eye on her.

Skye: Oh, yeah. I just might break for the border any second.

Mac: Ok, Courtney. Let's hear your story.

Roy: What do you mean, "again"?

Melissa: You know what? I don't even know why I mentioned it, to tell you the truth. It was -- it was --

Roy: No, you -- hey, Lucky.

Lucky: Hey.

Melissa: Lucky. You all right?

Lucky: What difference does that make?

Roy: Something bad going on here, man? What?

Lucky: Do you love Melissa?

Roy: Why?

Lucky: Because if you do, hold on to her. Don't let anybody change the way you feel.

Melissa: Hey, look, Lucky, why don't you -- why don't you sit down for a minute.

Lucky: Why won't you listen to me?

Roy: Hey, man, you're talking crazy. Come on --

Lucky: No, no, you know, I'm finally making sense, Roy. I am. Just remember what I said.

Nikolas: Stand up. I order you to stand up!

Helena: Yes, my prince.

Nikolas: And stop saying that!

Helena: Then you're not the prince? You have renounced the Cassadines? I didn't think so.

Nikolas: Grandmother, no one loves you. No one ever will. Your life has amounted to absolutely nothing! You're in a jail cell! But my life is about to begin.

Helena: Yes, my prince.

Nikolas: And you will not drag me -- you will not drag me down with you.

Helena: No, my prince.

Nikolas: Guard!

Bobbie: That's good. I mean, I like this positive attitude that you have going.

Scott: You know, from now on, it's nothing but chateau la tour. You watch how quick I reinvent myself.

Bobbie: Scott, what would you change, exactly?

Scott: My car.

[pager beeps]

Scott: I'd get rid of that Bentley. Wait a second. Oh, I got to take this.

Bobbie: Well, that's one thing that hasn't changed.

Scott: Yeah, just looking for a lawyer.

Bobbie: Tell me it isn't Carly.

Scott: Ah, it's just some rich kid. Bailout. See you.

Bobbie: Yeah. See you.

Laura: Luke? You were right. I am scared. I think that's why I started the whole fight. I just -- I needed a little room, that's all. Are you speaking to me? You know what? You don't have to answer that. Just listen to me, ok? I think that I've been in a panic ever since you asked me to marry you again. I just -- I haven't been able to think about anything else. And I think I'm ready to give you an answer.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Helena: Your timing is perfect as always, Jax.

Monica: I'm not going to perjure myself for anyone, least of all Skye.

Sonny: He's setting you up. Don't fall for it, Courtney.

Mike: Where is she, Zander?

Zander: Do us both a favor, Mike. Back off.
