>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Carly: Let's go out someplace tonight.

Zander: You and me? Alright, fine. Let's go.

Sonny: You're probably right. Courtney's in good hands with Kristina. I want to make it up to you.

Alexis: Tonight?

Sonny: Unless you're busy.

Edward: I've decided to drop all charges.

Skye: Thank you. I owe you.

Jax: You're welcome, but you don't owe me.

Waiter: It's a 1992 Dom Perignon.

Alexis: Thank you. I think we should look at tonight as a opportunity for personal growth.

Sonny: Hmm.

Alexis: You know, you've just discovered that you have a sister, she's 20 years old, and you have allowed her to go out into the dark, dark night, and you aren't even having her guarded. You aren't, are you?

Sonny: The night's not over.

Alexis: I'm still in the mood to toast to your personal growth because I believe you can do it.

Sonny: You know what? If it wasn't for you, Courtney's mother would still be arrested and Courtney would be blaming herself. Hell, if it wasn't for you, Courtney would have left town New Year's Eve. So I'm paying for the champagne. I get to toast. Alright. To my friend, my lawyer. I will always be indebted to you.

Sonny: Gotcha.

Alexis: What's wrong?

Sonny: Well, according to the guy at the door, my sister's here.

Jax: Well, what seems to be the problem, gentlemen?

Man: It's a private club. Members only. Capisce?

Jax: I see.

Skye: Surprise! I'm not behind bars after all. I'm free to do whatever I choose to do, and what I choose to do first is this.

Zander: What if this is a private party?

Carly: My uncle owns this place.

Zander: I thought you hated Luke.

Carly: I do, and lucky for me, he is out of town, which means that I can use my family connection without actually having to lay eyes on him.

Zander: Here, these guys are leaving. Let's go.

Carly: Ok -- oh, hey, wait.

Zander: What?

Carly: Just wait --

Zander:: What?

Carly: Hey.

Zander: What are you doing?

Carly: Whoops, there's some --

Zander: What are you --

Carly: What?

Zander: Wait a second. Carly, tell me that phone call --

Carly: Don't do that to me.

Zander: Tell me that phone call you made was not to set me up with a friend of yours.

Carly: You know what? I made a commitment to you to get your social life back on track.

Zander: Ah! Carly, you said you weren't going to set me up on a blind date!

Carly: Ok, well, think of it as an introduction, ok? Her name's Nicole. Now be nice.

Zander: Wait a second. Wait.

Carly: What?

Zander: Don't do this again.

Kristina: Listen, don't feel as if you have to bond with Sonny overnight. I mean, Alexis and me are pretty close, but I still feel so awkward around my brother. And Sonny is even more overwhelming than Stefan. Just don't push, you know? Hang out and see what happens.

Courtney: You know, I think I pretty much blew it already. I completely freaked out on Sonny.

Kristina: No --

Courtney: And he basically just saved my mom and I from going to jail.

Kristina: Just -- you know what? If you apologize to him later, I think it'll make his whole week. In the meantime, I think that we should not talk about your brother, not talk about my sister, and not leave this place until we've done something that we're going to regret terribly tomorrow.

Courtney: I am game.

Kristina: Cool.

Courtney: So, what do you do for the record company?

Kristina: Depends on who you ask.

Ned: Thank God you're here. The band is revolting.

Kristina: Well, I don't think they're that bad.

Ned: No. I mean the band. The band is refusing to behave like a band.

Kristina: Oh, God, Ned. I hate it when you tease me like that, especially when this place is crawling with press.

Ned: Oh, you're right. Just kidding. I still need you anyway. I need you in the CK.

Kristina: Ned Ashton, this is Courtney.

Ned: Hi. Nice to meet you. Can you save her seat?

Kristina: No, I --

Courtney: Just go. Go. I'll be fine.

Ned: Thank you. Kristina, really, you're the only one who can save this.

Kristina: Ok, listen, don't do anything you're going to regret until I get back so I can see it. Promise?

Courtney: Yeah.

Kristina: Ok.

Ned: Let's go.

Kristina: Ned?

Ned: Mm-hmm.

Kristina: There is no way the mainstream press could ever appreciate these guys. Why can't you understand that? It is beneath their genius to suck up to the media like pandering rock stars.

Ned: It's in their contract! They do PA gigs.

Kristina: It is beneath them!

Ned: If they don't do press, no one will know they exist.

Kristina: But that's not their goal. It's not about going to A-List parties with cute groupies or being recognized everywhere you go or all the other headaches that go along with being a big-name act. Ok?

Ned: So we're supposed to just release their CD without any publicity whatsoever?

Man: No, man, that's not what we're saying.

Kristina: Look, Ned, the critics will review it.

Man: The critics hated our first CD.

Kristina: Ok, so, the critics will pan this one, but your fan base -- your fans will write letters to the editor saying the critics were wrong.

Ned: It's risky. But, hey, you know your fans better than I do. So I'll just go out there and tell the media that we're going to cancel all the interview sessions.

Man: And won't that come across as arrogant?

Kristina: Geniuses are arrogant.

Man: Wait.

Second man: I'm willing to do the interview.

Third man: Yeah, I'd rather do publicity than count on letters to the editor.

First man: Ok, we'll pander to the press.

Ned: What -- are you sure? Alright.

Man: Meet and greet, boys.

Ned: We make a good team. Have you ever been to Vegas?

Kristina: No, but I have been to Monte Carlo.

Ned: Pick a card.

Kristina: Watch out. I've been trained by Jax.

Ned: Oh. Well, good. Then you already know how to cheat. Put it back. Just watch this. I'm now shuffling the cards.

Kristina: Come on, tough guy. Show me what you got.

Ned: Hmm. Ok. I'm now going to show you which card you picked. Ah, here it is.

Kristina: Uh-uh.

Ned: Hmm. I need to work on that one.

Kristina: Come on, let's go.

Ned: Just a minute. I just want to thank you for what you did earlier. I owe you one.

Kristina: I'm just glad they didn't insist on playing. I'm not really in the mood for punk rock tonight.

Ned: Oh, no. Me, either. Although, you look -- you look great.

Kristina: Thank you. Ned, what are you doing?

Ned: I just want to --

Kristina: What are you doing?

Ned: I like -- I like your hair up that way, but I was just thinking --

Kristina: Do you mind?

Ned: I was just thinking, the media's already down there. How would you feel about singing a few songs?

Kristina: You know what, Ned? I'm sorry. I got to call this off. I got to put a halt to this whole thing.

A.J.: Remember me?

A.J.: I'm A.J. Quartermaine, the roadside Samaritan you blew off when your car broke down. Listen, I apologize if I struck you as a serial ax murderer. Honest, I'm really not.

Courtney: As far as I'm concerned, my instincts were dead-on. I saw you and your sister at the police station. You tried to pin a blackmail rap on my mother.

A.J.: Your mother tried to dump the whole thing on my sister and me.

Courtney: My mom made a mistake and you and your sister took advantage of it. If your own grandfather wants to put you in jail because of it, that's your problem. As far as I'm concerned, your family is deeply whacked, including you. So don't come around here playing the good Samaritan, ok?

Carly: Zander? Zander. Zander Smith, Nicole Fallon. Nicole, Zander.

Zander: Nice to meet you.

Nicole: You, too.

Carly: Let's sit.

Zander: Ahem.

Carly: I'm going for food.

Zander: I'll go with you.

Carly: No, no, no. Sit, sit, sit. I will get enough for the whole table. You two just talk.

Nicole: So how much do you pay Carly to be your publicity agent?

Zander: We're still negotiating. So -- how do you and Carly know each other?

Nicole: We were lab partners in a design class at P.C.U. She said you work for her ex-husband?

Zander: So, you want to be in design, huh?

Nicole: I'm working on my bachelor's in elementary education with a minor in child psychology.

Zander: You like kids?

Nicole: Yes.

Zander: I -- wow. I'm so thrilled to hear that.

A.J.: You're right. I'm not a good Samaritan. I'm a jerk on my good days. And on my not-so-good days, I'm a bottom-feeding worm. Seriously. I know you don't want me sitting here, so just let me say what I came to say and I'll leave you alone. I just wanted to tell you how much I admire you for having the guts to crash a New Year's Eve party and tell my grandfather the truth. My grandfather, well, he fluctuates between windbag and tyrant. But, believe it or not, I do love him. In fact, that's true about my whole family.

Courtney: By "family," you mean all those people yelling at each other on New Year's?

A.J.: Yeah. Yeah, that's most of them. You see, some families, well, they hug and kiss each other. Mine? We stab each other in the back, blackmail, do all sorts of horrible things to one another that I will spare you the gory details of. I digress. The point is you have courage. And that is a human characteristic that a lot of people don't have and something I notoriously lack. Thank you.

Courtney: Wait.

Skye: Your little plan to send me and A.J. to prison didn't work, despite having found your long-lost sister and her mother and trying to use them to pull it off. Wow, you shake your head at me for protecting a brother I barely know. Just you wait until somebody messes with your sister.

Sonny: Are you threatening my family?

Skye: You threatened mine. Despite all of your so-called power, I'm going to make you regret the day that you ever insulted me or kidnapped my brother or stole his son. People think I'm the piranha? Well, I say it takes one to know one. And when I get through with you, you're going to have to look for another town to go blight. When I am done with you, I'm going to make you look at ELQ as the weapon that took you down because when it comes down do it, I am smarter than you and I'm way more determined!

Sonny: You're a fool! You're a fool. But you're fortunate because I have a rule against hurting women. But one of these days, somebody's going to swat you down and you're not going to be able to get up. You better hope your luck holds because one of these days, you're going to meet somebody you shouldn't be messing with and he's going to squash you.

Jax: Well, he'll have to get through me first.

Kristina: I've been holding this in, and it's driving me crazy. I got to be honest with you. This just -- this just isn't right for me. I mean, it's not right for me tonight and it's not going to be right for me, really, any night, and I don't want you to take it personally, Ned. I mean, you're -- you're awesome, you're funny and kind and caring and supportive, and -- I just don't think that this is right for me, and most people would kill for this opportunity, but it's just the opposite of everything that I really want right now.

Ned: Ok. Fine. I get it.

Kristina: I'm really sorry.

Ned: Hey. Don't be. It's not the end of the world.

Kristina: You must think that I'm crazy for giving up a music career that's being handed to me on a silver platter, huh?

Ned: That big spiel was about your singing career?

Kristina: Didn't you want me to go out there and sing in front of the press?

Ned: Uh --

Kristina: What'd you think that I was talking about?

Ned: You and me.

Courtney: Did you know that my mom never slept with your grandfather?

A.J.: Well, I suspected it, but I wasn't certain until you showed up and made your announcement.

Courtney: But your sister, she knew?

A.J.: Apparently.

Courtney: So she's been lying to you. You don't seem upset with her.

A.J.: Skye got a raw deal. She didn't even know her real parents until recently. Basically, she was lied to her whole life. That never does anything good for a person's self-esteem. So, I figure with that working against her, at the very least, she deserves to have someone in the family support her.

Waitress: Hi. Have you two ordered?

A.J.: Bottled water, sparkling, please?

Courtney: Same. You're right. I am underage, and they probably would have carded me. You could have ordered whatever you want.

A.J.: I did. I have a real problem with alcohol. It's just one more thing that makes me an outcast in polite society.

Courtney: Well, at least you're honest with your flaws. I mean, it's nice that somebody is.

Carly: Yeah, and if you believe that, honey, you are way too young to be out alone.

Jax: You know, you love to say this or that person's under your protection. Well, consider Ms. Chandler under mine. If anything should happen to her, anything at all, then you're going to have me to deal with.

Alexis: Jax, you may be jumping to the wrong conclusion --

Sonny: Alexis, this isn't your fight.

Alexis: Well, ok.

Jax: Yes, by all means let Sonny speak for himself, as he was doing so vividly when I walked up. Something about squashing someone, was it?

Alexis: Jax --

Jax: Huh? Who is it, Sonny? Who is it you're going to swat down?

Sonny: You. Iím returning my elf uniform.

A.J.: Carly, can we not do this right now?

Carly: So, you're dating jailbait now? Hmm. I knew it would come to this. Can't fool any grownup for long, can you? So, what are you going to do when the kids even start to see through you, hmm?

A.J.: I'm sorry about this.

Carly: You going to move on to the teenage crowd? And what happens when they find out you're a jerk? Oh, junior high set. Let me give you a little bit of advice, sweetheart, ok? A.J. -- He's worth a couple of pieces of good jewelry, and then after that, you need to cut him loose. And don't put out because there is no payoff in or out of the sack.

Courtney: Boy, so you didn't end things good with her, did you? Girlfriend?

A.J.: No. Ex-wife. And your brother's, too.

Carly: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Where's Zander?

Nicole: Making his nightly phone calls.

Carly: His what?

Nicole: His nightly phone calls. Carly, what -- ahem. Whatever you think of me, I am not that desperate.

Carly: Wait, hang on -- hey -- oh.

A.J.: Carly -- she dumped me for Sonny, got married, and they're split up now. Of course, they blame me for all the bad things that's happened, and not completely without reason, which brings up another big reason why you should avoid me -- your brother hates me. In fact, you so much as mention my name, I guarantee he will forbid you to give me the time of day. Where's that water?

Courtney: Nobody forbids me to do anything.

A.J.: Maybe so, but if you were my little sister, I would warn you to cross the other side of the street if you saw me headed in your direction.

Courtney: Of course, every law-enforcement officer on the eastern seaboard would probably give me the same advice about Sonny Corinthos.

A.J.: True.

Courtney: But I like to find things out on my own. I will be friends with whomever I want. I'm not going to let a brother who I just met tell me who my friends are.

Jax: If you want to come after me, I'm ready whenever you are.

Sonny: The person who's going to tear you down, Jax, is standing right next to you. And, Skye, you better enjoy it because it's going to cost you. Any woman who would sell out her own family would screw you over as soon as she can. But you know what? You want to protect her. I'm not standing in your way. Go ahead, Candyboy.

Alexis: Jax, just walk away.

Jax: I assume this means you're backing down.

Sonny: Why would I want trouble from you? You found it on your own. The knight in shining armor defends the garden-variety tramp.

Jax: Watch your mouth.

Man: Is there a problem, Mr. Corinthos?

Sonny: Yeah, but it's going away.

Jax: I meant what I said.

Sonny: Yeah? So did I.

Jax: Good night, Alexis.

Alexis: Good night.

Jax: Shall we?

Waitress: We have your table set up, Mr. Corinthos.

Sonny: Ok. Thank you. You know what? Can you go and sit? I got to take care of some business.

Alexis: I'm sure you do.

Alexis: Thank you. Thanks.

Man: May I buy you a drink?

Alexis: Oh, I'm with --

Man: With someone. I know. But your date seems to be occupied at the moment. I would be very happy to entertain you at some later date.

Ned: Are you bailing on a music career because I happen to be involved?

Kristina: There is no career, Ned.

Ned: There could be.

Kristina: Oh.

Ned: Look, Kristina, you have a gift. I have seen you sing in front of an audience. I've seen you sing alone when you thought no one was watching you. And you love it. You love to sing. I honestly believe you have huge potential. And to prove that, I'm willing to bow out.

Kristina: You are a wonderful man.

Ned: I'm sorry. What did you say?

Kristina: You are a wonderful man.

Kristina: I love to sing in the shower, and I love to sing at parties when the punch is spiked. And singing at Jake's was a real kick, but, I mean, Ned, there are people who have trained their whole lives -- I mean, they would kill for an opportunity like this, you know? And they've trained and studied and practiced and they have the hunger. You know, and it's not to say that somewhere down the line I might not want to sing for L&B, but right now I've just discovered my birth family. I can't imagine leaving to go on the road for even a month away from them. My priority right now is forming roots, forming ties.

Ned: Just to family, or can anyone apply?

Kristina: Can we officially consider my singing career on hold right now?

Ned: Yes. We can do that.

Kristina: Thank you.

Ned: Now can we talk about that kiss?

Kristina: It was nice.

Ned: "Nice"? I actually thought it was better than the one on New year's Eve. Did you?

Kristina: I'm not going to compare kisses. And I'm not even going to enter a discussion, really, about whether or not that that will ever even happen again, ever.

Ned: Are you still concerned about something happening between you and me and how difficult it would be for Alexis?

Kristina: It's a recipe for disaster.

Ned: Did she say anything to you? Come on, what did she say?

Kristina: No.

Ned: What did she say? Alright. Ok, I am going to take that to mean that she said that it was fine for you and me to be together.

Kristina: What Alexis says and what Alexis means are two completely different things, ok?

Ned: Oh.

Kristina: And until I know that I won't be ruining my relationship with my sister, I just can't get involved in this.

Ned: Ok. End of discussion. Oh, just one little question, though.

Kristina: What?

Ned: Do you think your friend is still waiting for you out there?

Kristina: Oh, my God. Oh, my God, I forgot about Courtney!

Ned: Oh, Kristina --

Kristina: What?

Ned: Look what I found in my pocket -- the eight of clubs. Amazing. Let's go.

Kristina: You're crazy.

[Ned and Kristina laugh]

A.J.: You know, it's nice to be referred to, even fleetingly, as friend material. But don't worry, I won't hold you to it.

Zander: A.J.'s here.

Carly: I know. What -- what happened with you and Nicole, and what are these nightly phone calls that you have to make?

Zander: Uh -- I had to call my kids.

Carly: Oh. How many children do you have?

Zander: Three. Three in three different states, three different women.

Carly: Did you marry any of these women?

Zander: No.

Carly: No.

Zander: No.

Carly: Uh-uh.

Zander: No, but I call them. I call them every night.

Carly: Oh, how are you doing on your child support?

Zander: I'm not up, I'm not up, but I failed to mention that part.

Carly: Zander, you don't want to date, do you?

Zander: I'm not ready yet.

Carly: Ok, well, how are you going to know if you just don't dive in and take a chance? I mean, what am I going to do with you?

Zander: Stop ambushing me with eligible women. How about that?

Carly: Well, if I informed you about it before we came out, you would never show up.

Zander: It must mean I'm not ready -- ding!

Carly: I still don't see how you're going to know if you don't take the chance.

Zander: Ok. What about you?

Carly: What?

Zander: You say you want to move on with your life without Sonny. Why aren't you cruising this place for guys? What about -- what about this guy?

Carly: I am not ready.

Zander: Oh! Wow, that sounds -- that sounds so familiar.

Carly: Ok. More importantly, I will never find a guy like Sonny again. I mean, come on. Is Sonny not the coolest guy you've ever met? He's the richest, most powerful, and the best dresser you've ever seen. I mean, who in this place -- who is going to compare to that?

Zander: Well, there's A.J.

[Zander laughs]

Zander: Joke.

Carly: You know, Zander, really, I'm never going to find anyone out there who is going to love me the way that Sonny did. I mean, who am I going to find who's going to change my life and break my heart? You know, even at our worst, we were the best.

Zander: Did he save your life?

Carly: You know he did.

Zander: Did he get you out of jail?

Carly: Several times.

Zander: Did he act like you mattered when the whole world thought you were trash?

Carly: Something like that.

Zander: That's exactly what Emily did for me. And all these girls you keep introducing me to, they're pretty and they're nice, but I seriously doubt they'd show up to see me in lockup or fight their whole family just to be with me. When you've been with someone that's brave and strong and they'd risk their whole life for you, all of a sudden pretty and nice just doesn't seem to mean all that much.

Carly: I get it.

Zander: Good.

Carly: For tonight. But eventually, Zander, you will have to move on. I believe that, truly, it's the only way. And I have to move on, too. But now I want to get the hell out of here. I got work to do. I'm going to the office.

Zander: I'll go with you.

Kristina: Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to strand you here all by yourself.

Courtney: It's ok. I found someone to talk to. Did you guys work everything out?

Ned: Oh, yes. We averted a small disaster and made some progress in solving a more complex and larger dilemma. Hello, junior. What brings you to Luke's?

A.J.: Well, I'm here to support my cousin, naturally.

Ned: Since when?

Courtney: Wait -- you're cousins?

Ned: New Year's Eve. So, you are Janine's daughter?

Courtney: Guilty.

Kristina: Ok, look, Courtney and I made a pact that we were going to leave all that stuff out the door, ok? So no talk about New Year's or your grandfather or Janine or blackmail.

Ned: Now, how do you two know each other?

Kristina: Well, Courtney is Sonny's sister.

Ned: I didn't know sonny had a sister.

Courtney: Sonny didn't either until recently, and neither did I.

Man: I'm serious. I need a good contract lawyer. My business is tremendously difficult.

Alexis: That's understandable, given this restaurant's clientele.

Man: Don't jump to any conclusions. I am a legitimate businessman. But if you're not open to a professional association, perhaps you would be more receptive to a purely social invitation.

Sonny: First of all, get off of my chair, away from my friend, and walk quietly out that door.

Man: I meant no disrespect. I was --

Sonny: Make no attempt to contact this woman or enter this establishment again.

Man: Ms. Davis, I apologize if I was rude in any way. Mr. Corinthos.

Sonny: Tonio says the sea bass is excellent tonight.

Alexis: Are you out of your mind? Do you think maybe you overreacted just a little bit?

Sonny: Alexis, I know --

Alexis: Is this how you lost your last attorney?

Sonny: I know that man. If you ever see him again, you cross the street and you call me immediately. I don't want to see you get hurt.

Jax: The minute I get you out of jail, you go into a gangster's hangout and get in Sonny's face.

Skye: I wanted him to know I was out of jail.

Jax: Why do you fling yourself at all kinds of risks, necessitating perpetual rescue?

Skye: You got to be kidding me -- this coming from a man who climbs mountains and kayaks waterfalls?

Jax: Hey, excuse me. I know what I'm doing, ok?

Skye: I knew what I was doing. I didn't need a white knight to come and save me. You just happened to be there. As far as I can tell, it's just in your D.N.A. Was your father like this or something, or is this some byproduct of reading heroic books when you were a child?

Jax: What?

Skye: As a kid, did something really terrible happen and you decided from then on that you were going to be the white knight, whether or not anybody needed one? That's not what happened, is it?

Jax: We've been through all this, you know. I'm not a white knight, you know. We've covered that. I'm just a guy with one or two good instincts, you know? If I see a hungry puppy, for instance, I tend to find some food for it and maybe a home. I mean, that's called simple human decency. You act like you've never experienced it before.

Skye: Frankly, no, not very often.

Jax: Oh.

Skye: Right now, I'm a very hungry puppy. Could you buy me a hot dog, please?

Jax: If you promise me something.

Skye: I'm under your protection, remember? Do you want me to starve?

Jax: Hey, Skye, I'm serious. I want you to promise me not to get in trouble again.

Skye: If I do, will you rescue me?

Jax: Promise, Skye, or no hot dog.

Skye: Alright. I promise I will stay out of trouble.

Jax: Ok, then. Let me get two hot dogs, please.

Man: Right away, sir.

Skye: No more trouble from me. Until I come up with something really good.

A.J.: Well, I have to go raise some hell. I have a reputation to uphold. Have a nice night. Courtney, it was a pleasure meeting you.

Courtney: Then maybe Iíll see you again.

A.J.: Not if you're lucky.

Ned: See you, cuz.

Ned: So, if you're Sonny's sister, then Janine and Mike --

Courtney: Right.

Ned: And Sonny didn't know he had a sister?

Courtney: No.

Ned: You see, that's very unusual because Sonny always a point to know everything about everyone.

Courtney: I take it you're not a big fan of sonny's?

Ned: No, no. We're allergic to one another. But Sonny does have his admirers.

Alexis: Of course, Mr. Rosco is a bad, bad man. What's he do? Pimp? Drug dealer?

Sonny: His given name is Roscolnikoff. He's Joseph Sorel's chief enforcer.

Alexis: Is "chief enforcer" some sort of code word for a violent-type job?

Sonny: The way he does it, it is. It's his calling card.

Alexis: Do I have to worry about you?

Sonny: You don't have to worry about me.

Carly: So, what'd you think?

Zander: Well, I already told you. Nicole's nice, but I'm not interested.

Carly: Will you forget about Nicole? I'm not talking about Nicole. What did you think of Luke's? I mean, did you enjoy the atmosphere? Did you have a good time? Did you think that the way the people moved around was good and that if you were there you were going to have a good time and enjoy yourself?

Zander: I don't know. I was -- didn't really get a chance to notice. I was too busy trying to ditch the blind date.

Carly: Ok, well, if you're going to help me, you need to pay closer attention.

Zander: Whoa. Our deal was that I try and stop you from doing anything crazy, not trying to help you open up your club. Believe me, I'm not qualified.

Carly: Why would you say that? You know what? You are exactly the kind of person that I'd want there. You're young and you're handsome and --

Zander: The kind of guys that you want in your club are guys like Jax or Ned Ashton -- these guys with money that wear suits.

Carly: Boring people?

Zander: I wouldn't say they were boring.

Carly: No, ok, but would you really want to sip champagne with them and have conversations about kayaking in Tasmania?

Zander: I'm not even sure where Tasmania is.

Carly: Yeah, well, I'm not either. And personally, I don't really care. But you know what? The kind of guys I like, they're guys who shoot pool, you know? I mean, this whole witty, drinking-champagne, dress-in-a-tux thing that Jax does, it's definitely lost on me.

Zander: Ok, so, wait a second -- then why are you opening a club with him?

Carly: He's got money.

Zander: Yeah, but Jax's money could buy you any kind of club you want. Why are you going to make something that's upscale and sophisticated when all you really want is a place that people can go to drink beer and shoot pool?

Carly: No, people can do that already at Jake's. And if they want to hear blues, they can go to Luke's. They can go to the grill if they want to have a big meal and listen to old music and be bored stiff. You know what, though? There is no place in this town where people can go and they can dress up and look great and be in a sexy environment and fall in love. But there will be.

Zander: Yeah, but you -- you have to love this club, too.

Carly: Oh, I will. But you know what? If I want to have a beer and shoot some pool, we're meeting at Jake's.

Zander: Deal.

Carly: Hey, where you going?

Zander: My car's parked on the curb. I'm going to get a ticket. I'll be back in a minute.

Carly: Ok, good. You know what? Because I need you to help me pick out carpeting.

Zander: Can't wait.

Rosco: Carly Corinthos.

Carly: Do I know you?

Rosco: Not yet, but my name's Rosco, and we're going to get to know each other very well.

Carly: Oh, and why is that?

Rosco: I'm your new best friend.

Bobbie: What are you feeling, Elizabeth?

Mike: Hello, Courtney.

Courtney: What are you doing here?

Sonny: There's nobody I'd rather be having dinner with than you.

Alan: You're a liar! Something's got to be done about it!
