>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Kristina: Hi -- you sound terrible. What's wrong?
Ned: Grandfather had a heart attack.
Skye: I'll never forgive you. And with Jax by my side, I won't need a thing.
Sonny: Can we go somewhere, work this out? What are you doing here?
Mike: Courtney called and invited me.
Carly: I have one thing to say and I’m only going to say it once, so you better listen.
Kristina: Hey. Come here.
Kristina: How's your grandfather?
Ned: Well, he's in surgery right now. They're doing a bypass. They won't know for a few hours if he's going to pull through.
Kristina: And how about you? You going to pull through?
Ned: Yeah. I'm fine.
Kristina: Maybe this is what it'll finally take to bring the Quartermaines back together as a family.
Ned: Who are you? Really.
Carly: Oh, you are predictable. You always come slithering back to the scene of your crimes.
A.J.: Carly, do your doctors at Ferncliff know about these bouts of paranoia?
Carly: Oh. That is a typical A.J. threat -- hide behind someone else. Yeah, blame the doctors at Ferncliff, have them do your dirty work, or Jax or Skye or whoever else is willing to do your fighting for you.
A.J.: Last I checked, you were the one hiding behind Jax -- or excuse me -- was that underneath him?
Carly: You are chasing after a little girl, A.J. You are putting the moves on Courtney just because she's Sonny's sister and you want to mess with Sonny's head.
A.J.: Oh, gosh, Carly -- that is a terrible thing to say. You make me sound like an absolute villain.
Jax: There's that girl again, the one that showed up New Year’s Eve and blew your scam with Edward.
Skye: That's not just any girl. That's Sonny's sister.
Scott: Are we going to order steaks or are you just going to stare in space?
Mike: Well, this -- this is the best invitation I've had in quite a while. I'm -- thank you for making this possible, Michael.
Sonny: I didn't.
Courtney: I'm glad you could come.
Sonny: Okay. You can go ahead and go now, Mike. Sit down.
Courtney: No, no, wait. I want him to stay.
Courtney: Well, are you going to join us or not?
Carly: You admit it. You admit that you are only going after Courtney because she is Sonny's sister.
A.J.: What difference does it make how I answer? You hate me so much, you'll believe what you want.
Carly: I know you. I know you. You're going to -- you're going to pretend that you're her friend and tell her all sorts of evil things about Sonny.
A.J.: Couldn't be further from the truth, Carly. And what difference does it make? You're just going to bunny run to Sonny and stir up trouble anyway.
Carly: You deserve trouble, A.J. You deserve as much trouble as you can get.
A.J.: Oh, so that's why you sicced Sonny on me, huh? So tell me, how long were you hiding in the bushes, just waiting for something to happen to give you a nice excuse to call Sonny?
Carly: I was there as long as I needed to be so I could see you lying through your teeth to Courtney.
A.J.: I'm not playing Courtney, okay? She was being nice to me because my grandfather is in the hospital and nobody knows whether he's going to live or die. I realize human compassion is extremely difficult for you to fathom.
Carly: You have never had a genuine moment in your entire life, you pathetic worm.
A.J.: You know, I really -- I can't see Courtney being Sonny's sister. She seems to have a heart.
Carly: Well, was she nice to you, A.J.? Did she stroke your deflated ego and make you feel like a man? Because she's too inexperienced to realize that you are deficient in that area. Oh. Oh, that's what makes you crazy, isn't it -- that you will never, ever be half the man that Sonny is?
Jax: You know, Sonny's sister doesn't seem to be enjoying herself very much. Not that I can blame her. This can't be easy.
Skye: I'm sure she'll be fine.
Jax: Yeah, well, she seemed nice enough when I met her on New Year’s. Pretty, too.
Skye: Yeah, well, she's got a big mouth. Look, let's just ignore them, okay? I want to thank you for having me make amends with my grandfather. It was really the advice that I needed.
Jax: I'm glad I could help.
Skye: So do you think you could help me find a place to live considering that my loving family has now kicked me out?
Jax: Why don't you just move back into the room upstairs?
Skye: You wouldn't mind having me for a neighbor again?
Scott: Well, I hope you're going to enjoy your beet salad and your sardine soufflé.
Alexis: Sounds good.
Scott: Hey, you know what? Whatever trouble he's gotten himself into is not your responsibility. He did it.
Alexis: You going to carry that grudge against Sonny to your grave?
Scott: You know what? He hooked my daughter on drugs and made her strip for a living. He's bad news.
Courtney: You say you want to work things out. How are we supposed to do that if you won't even sit down at the table?
Courtney: See? We can do this. One step at a time.
Mike: Look, I -- I want to make you both a promise. You won't regret trying to work things out tonight. Now, I know it might not happen tonight or for a long time, but you're my kids and for being here tonight and trying, I thank you.
Sonny: The steak -- the steak is good if you want.
Courtney: I think I'll get the scampi.
Mike: Yeah, the scampi is good, too.
Courtney: Is it all right if I go to the ladies' room?
Sonny: Yeah, yeah, go ahead.
Sonny: You shouldn't be here when she gets back. You can do that pretty good -- I mean, disappear, right?
Mike: I'm not running this time, Michael. I'm not backing off, either. I don't have that many chances left to try to make up for things. So if you don't like it, tough.
Kristina: What are you doing, taking up ophthalmology?
Ned: No, they say that the eyes are the windows into the soul. So I'm just looking to see -- oh, my God.
Ned: You have sunlight inside your head.
Kristina: Oh, you know, that -- that must be why I have such problems sleeping at night.
Ned: Look -- look --
Ned: Into my eyes. No, look. I guarantee you will see nothing but dark Quartermaine shadows punctured by the occasional lightning bolt.
Kristina: Oh, no, no, no, no. You have got it all wrong, my friend. I see -- I see sparkles and twinkles and moonbeams. Oh, you know what? I just saw a meteor shower. Wow.
Ned: No, no, no, no, no, no -- then you must be looking inside someone else's head because I'm telling you right now, my family's eyes -- there is nothing but the perpetual eclipse.
Kristina: Well, you know what? The sun has to come out eventually.
Ned: Well, that's sweet because you're an optimist. But I'm not. I'm here to tell you that there is no way my grandfather's heart attack will bring this family together.
Kristina: Come with me.
Ned: Where are we going now?
Kristina: Come with me.
Ned: What --
Kristina: We are going to perform brain surgery.
Ned: Well, I -- on me?
Kristina: Yes, it's your only chance. Let's go.
A.J.: What are you doing, huh? What, are you hoping Sonny will come back, give you a gold star for getting in my face?
Carly: I am trying to remember when we were friends.
A.J.: We weren't. You were scamming me, like always.
Carly: No, I was desperate. I was stuck in that apartment with Tony trying to convince myself that I still loved him.
A.J.: Pregnant, but with my son and tried to pass it off as his.
Carly: Yeah, you know what? You are right. You're right. I was miserable and I was scared out of my mind, so why wouldn't I tell you the truth?
A.J.: You're incapable of the truth. We both know that.
Carly: No, no, no. I couldn't trust you. I knew that you would not be strong enough to come through for me. Ever -- God! -- Ever since that first stupid, pathetic moment that we spent together, that first night, I knew you were not a man. You know it, too. You see, that is why you are using Sonny's sister to get to him.
A.J.: Yeah, and what about you -- hiding in the bushes? Playing like you're some wannabe detective, trying to overhear a little dirt so you can run back to Sonny, maybe get in with him again, huh? You know what? You can't even take a breath without wondering how that man's going to react.
Carly: You know, you don't even know the first thing about it.
A.J.: I know you. I know how you operate. See, you think if you run back to Sonny and tell him that I'm hitting on his sister, that Sonny will be so grateful that he'll forgive you. He'll stop the divorce and forgive you for trying to throw him in prison.
Carly: You just shut up, A.J.
A.J.: Huh? Babe, what's up?
Carly: Shut up.
A.J.: You know, I remember when you used to have some pride. What happened? I mean, you've hit bottom, even for you. You're groveling. Tell me something -- how does dirt taste, baby, huh? Ugh.
Andy: Hey, hey, hey! All right, all right! All right, break it up! Knock it off!
Carly: Let go!
Jax: Listen, you're just wasting everybody's time. Now, call me tomorrow with a reasonable offer, okay? Yeah, call me at lunch, your time. Great. Well, hello again.
Courtney: Hi. I never thanked you for getting me in to see Edward Quartermaine on New Year’s.
Jax: Right, right, yeah. You know, as I recall, you did say that you weren't going to cause a scene, so -- what?
Courtney: Mr. Quartermaine made the scene, not me.
Jax: Oh, I see. I stand corrected, then.
Courtney: Anyway, thanks for getting me in.
Jax: Oh, it was my pleasure. How is everything in there? Are you okay?
Courtney: I've been worse, but I've also been a lot better. Anyway, I have to get back.
Jax: Sure. Well, good luck.
Courtney: Yeah, thanks.
Skye: Well, I've decided to take your advice about getting a room here at the hotel.
Skye: Is Sonny's little sister getting in trouble again?
Jax: Well, she seems to have a lot on her plate.
Skye: Hello! How nice to see you again.
Manager: Ms. Chandler- Quartermaine.
Skye: It looks like my plans have changed and I am able to stay on a bit longer.
Manager: Oh, how delightful.
Skye: Yes, in fact, I would like to book that same suite that I had across the hall from Mr. Jacks.
Manager: Oh, I'm terribly sorry, but that suite is taken.
Skye: Well, for how long?
Manager: For the foreseeable future.
Skye: Well, I'm sure that you can move the guest to other accommodations.
Manager: I'm afraid that's not going to be possible, ma'am.
Skye: Uh-huh. I'm a Quartermaine. My family owns this hotel. Make it happen.
Scott: You know, I've seen you in the courtroom and you're pretty good. So why are you wasting your time on that little mobster?
Alexis: Well, I could say the same thing about a few of your clients.
Scott: Yeah, well, you see that's "clients." I have clients, and you now only have one client and I think you're better than that.
Alexis: I'm perfectly happy with my practice, thank you very much. He is not my only client. He happens to be going through something right now.
Scott: Oh, who cares what he's going through? Whatever it is, it's illegal.
Alexis: I'm not going to spend the rest of the evening defending him.
Scott: Why? You're spending the whole evening staring at him. You know what? This -- this dinner was a mistake. I've changed my mind.
Alexis: Me, too.
Mike: I'm -- I'm going to say something. I mean, you can -- you can listen or you can eat and ignore me, but I can't -- I can't let this whole night go by without giving it my best shot. Look, I -- I disappointed both of you. I let you down. And I -- why does somebody make the same mistakes over and over again? I'm not sure. I just know that I -- I was scared mostly and I didn't know how to break the pattern. Look, I can't go back and change the past, as much as I want to. All I can do is be here with you now and -- and try to earn back your trust. And I know that -- I know that forgiveness is probably out of the question, but would you please just let me try? You know, you -- you've turned into a beautiful young lady and I'm sitting here kicking myself for missing all those years with you.
Courtney: I had a great Sweet-16 party. It's too bad you missed it.
Mike: I would have been there if your mother hadn't --
Sonny: You made your choices. Don't put them off on other people.
Courtney: So fill me in. Why did you dump Sonny?
Mike: I was selfish, Courtney. I hit a run of bad luck and I convinced myself that Sonny and his mother were better off without me.
Sonny: No, you see, it's harder to live off your winnings when you have a family to support. Right, Mike? Right, Mike?
Courtney: Did the same thing happen with me and my mom?
Sonny: You know what? Sorry. Don't do this to yourself because he'll keep making excuses as long as you're willing to listen. That doesn't change anything. He is -- he is addicted to gambling, so whenever he's in the big game, everything else goes out the window and that includes whichever child he -- he promises to love that week.
Mike: I never forgot either of you.
Sonny: I just --
Mike: You know, I -- I've kept this with me all these years and I want you to have it. You were my little princess and you always will be. Don't do this, Michael. Damn it, don't do this.
Sonny: All right, you know what? If you were so important to your father, why didn't he tell you you had a brother? Huh?
Mike: Don't do this, Michael.
Sonny: If that picture he's carrying around is so important, why didn't he tell me you existed? He's been here for nine years, Courtney, telling me he wants to start over, that he's changed. Not once did he mention I had a sister. Come on, let's go. I want to get --
Courtney: You can't order me around!
Sonny: Shh, shh. Hey, hey, hey, hey, listen to me.
Sonny: Mike's not going to say one thing to you that he hasn't already said to me, so let me give you the condensed version. He didn't mean to, it wasn't his fault, and he always loved you. Is that enough? You feel better now?
Courtney: Maybe I want to hear it from my father.
Sonny: All right. Go ahead.
Scott: Well, I guess I'm not going to see any action.
Alexis: Scott, let's agree not to do this again, all right?
Scott: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, sure. Deal.
Alexis: Come on; let's go back to my place.
Mike: Look, I -- I don't blame you for how you feel about me, Michael. But this isn't the way to punish me. Yeah, I -- I walked out on you both and that was wrong. I know that. But it's not right for you to try to keep me away from Courtney now. You may be her brother, but I am still her father.
Sonny: It's too late, Mike.
Mike: No it's not.
Sonny: Yeah, it's too late. You know what I'm saying? You've been -- ever since you got to Port Charles, I've cleaned up your mess. And I'm going to clean this one up, too! But after that, you and I are finished.
Skye: Let's try this again, shall we? I'm not requesting that you make the room available. I am ordering you to make the room available.
Manager: And I am terribly sorry, but the guest is simply not willing to move.
Skye: Maybe you didn't hear me. My family owns this hotel. I can have you fired.
Manager: If Mr. Edward Quartermaine himself asked for that suite, he would be denied.
Skye: Well, who is this guest anyway?
Manager: We're not able to divulge that information.
Alexis: Listen, why don't you wait here, and I'm going to go get a cab, okay?
Courtney: What are you looking at?
Skye: I'm looking at a little girl who thinks she's cute and, oh, so open and honest. But the truth is you're exactly like your mother -- a cheap, conniving hustler who tried to ruin my life. You better tell Janine to stay out of my way, or she's going to be very, very sorry. And as for you, you little know-nothing, do you know your big mouth wound up causing my grandfather a heart attack?
Alexis: I believe my client has asked you to stay away from his sister. Should you approach her again, I will file a restraining order.
Skye: Oh, Alexis, do not mess with me, okay? I'm in no mood.
Alexis: Don't mess with me, Skye. I can out-mood you any day.
Jax: Alexis, I'll take care of Ms. Chandler-Quartermaine.
Alexis: Thank you, Jax.
Skye: I -- I don't know what came over me.
Jax: Well, I know exactly what came over you. Because I heard every word.
Carly: Let go of me!
Andy: No, not until you calm down.
A.J.: Officer? It's all right. You know, she didn't hurt me too bad.
Zander: You all right? Did he hurt you?
A.J.: Are you kidding me? She came at me like a maniac.
Carly: It was self-defense.
Zander: This guy's her ex-husband. He's hurt her before.
A.J.: She attacked me. You saw.
Andy: When I arrived, Mrs. Corinthos was hitting Mr. Quartermaine. So you have the option to press charges for assault.
Carly: Try it, A.J. Go ahead, try it, and I will tell the court, a judge, just exactly why I thought I was in physical jeopardy from you.
Zander: Who do you think they're going to believe, you or Carly, hmm?
A.J.: Hey, you know what? It's all right. I'm not going to press charges. Maybe she's learned her lesson.
Andy: All right, folks. I'm going to leave you to work things out peacefully. Mrs. Corinthos?
Carly: I won't touch a slimy hair on his head.
Andy: All right. Don't make this [word missing].
A.J.: Touch me again, I will press charges. Shouldn't be too difficult to convince a jury that you're a -- a nut case, a violent nut case who should be locked up for her own protection. But then again, how would you spy for Sonny from behind bars?
Carly: You pig!
Zander: Carly, Carly, hey! He's not worth it.
Carly: Go on. Go on, get out of here, you nasty weasel! Just --
Zander: Carly, let it go, okay?
Carly: Go have your little sister take care of you.
Zander: Carly, let it go. Let it go, okay?
Carly: I'm fine.
Zander: If you get yourself arrested, you're just letting him win.
Carly: You know, I hate it when you are right.
Zander: A.J.'s not worth it, okay? You have more important things to think about. Well, I'll take you back to the club.
Carly: You know what? I can't go. I don't want to. I feel -- God, I feel like hitting something.
Zander: All right, fine, fine. Then let's walk it off. You can tell me about the carpet or the chairs in your club or something, all right?
Carly: I will.
Zander: All right. Let's go.
Ned: So, this is your operating room?
Kristina: Yes. I like to be able to perform brain surgery underneath the stars.
Ned: Hmm. So you've performed this procedure before?
Kristina: Oh, yes, many, many times, but never has it been so vital. Lay down -- on the bench.
Ned: Is this going to hurt?
Kristina: Well, that'll depend on you.
Ned: On the bench.
Ned: Okay. I'm now laying down on the bench.
Kristina: Close your eyes.
Ned: I'm now closing my eyes.
Courtney: What is it with Sonny? All right, no way does he get to order me around like that. I don't care how he feels about our dad. This is my life, and I get to say when I stay and when I leave. I mean, no matter how bad Mike's screwed up, that does not give him the right to just look through him like he doesn't exist. It's just so disrespectful. I hate it!
Alexis: Courtney, what did you expect Sonny to do when you set him up like that? Did you think he was going to give Mike a big hug?
Courtney: I -- you know, I thought that we could talk it out, maybe work through some stuff. Why is Sonny so afraid of talking?
Alexis: Because he is in a very difficult position right now.
Ned: Now, my eyes may be closed, but I'm going to be listening very carefully.
Kristina: Okay. Now, stop talking. All right?
Ned: I'm all yours.
Kristina: Good. Okay. I want you to imagine that you're at the tall of a very tall building -- say, the deck of a penthouse, 80 stories high.
Ned: Prime real estate. Very high rent.
Kristina: Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. Just picture it for two minutes. Trust, okay? Now you look up. You see the sky above you. It's a beautiful day. You feel the cushion underneath you. You look out and see a row of potted plants along the edge of the deck. The sun is warm against your skin. There's a cool breeze because you're so high up. And all the noise of the city is far, far away from you.
Ned: Got it.
Kristina: Good. Now I want you to imagine that you get up and go to the railing of the deck. It's a small wall made of brick, about four feet high.
Kristina: You lean out over the edge. You look at the magnificent view of the city. So high up.
Ned: Hmm. Beautiful.
Kristina: Good. Now I want you to imagine that the railing is no longer there.
Ned: What was the point of that?
Kristina: You have a very powerful imagination, Ned. Come on, you were sitting here the whole time. You were perfectly safe. All I had to do was suggest that you were going to fall, and you got tensed up, you got scared.
Ned: And I'm sure you're going to tell me that there's a -- that there's something good about all this.
Kristina: Well, it just proves that you have the power to change your perceptions. Decide you're somebody else. Decide you're not that guy standing at the top of a tall building without any railing. You're -- you're -- you're on a mountain top. You're on a beach. You're on a park bench. It's up to you, Ned. You can decide how to live your life.
Ned: You know, you almost make me believe I can.
Carly: Thank you for dragging me away when you did before I caused any more damage.
Zander: You shouldn't let A.J. bother you. He's an insignificant creep. You should just ignore him. Eventually, he's going to get bored and he's going to go away.
Carly: I don't know. Maybe I'm just trying to protect Courtney so Sonny will think I'm good enough. What do you think?
Zander: I think you think too much.
Carly: No, I'm serious.
Zander: Okay. What's the big deal if you care for Sonny? I mean, he still cares for you.
Carly: We aren't together anymore.
Zander: Okay, okay, so the marriage didn't work. I think -- I think it is great that you two still look out for each other.
Zander: You're welcome.
Carly: You know, when you think about this, it really is my responsibility.
Zander: Carly, please don't go there.
Carly: No, A.J. is only going after Courtney to get back at Sonny for protecting me and Michael. You know, I started this ridiculous feud. I should be the one to end it. I owe Sonny that much.
Zander: Okay. Trust me on this. He'd be a lot happier if you just leave it alone.
Carly: No. Look, I won't do anything crazy. Promise. It's just -- I don't know. I just need to find someone to get in between Courtney and A.J. Turn around.
Carly: Just turn.
Scott: Hey, Amy, Amy, Amy -- why are you calling? No, no, no. Tell Bobbie it's too late, that I already dumped my date. Right. All right. Good-bye.
Scott: Say -- how you doing? Before I make a cheap pass, are you here pining away for somebody?
Woman: I am so totally over Mario.
Scott: What are you drinking?
Skye: It must have been that whole scene with my grandfather, you know? And then his heart attack and the operation and not knowing whether he was going to live or not. And it -- well, it all really got to me, and I just -- I lashed out. I'm sorry. I -- I regret it.
Jax: You know, there's something very unattractive about picking on someone who can't defend themselves.
Skye: I know.
Jax: So why'd you dump on Courtney?
Skye: I was in pain. I wasn't myself.
Jax: No. On the contrary, you were behaving exactly like yourself.
Skye: That is unfair.
Jax: You know, your family blames you for Edward’s heart attack, which was absurd. But they did anyway. So you blame that girl because you want to feel better. So you did exactly what you always do. You make someone else feel worse. Hmm? Did it work? Do you feel better?
Skye: Look, Jax, we could both stand here and have me lie to you, but we both know what I am and what I've been.
Jax: That doesn't mean you can't change -- or at least try.
Skye: I am trying. But it's not easy being like you, you know. You got to cut me some slack here.
Jax: Hey, I don't see why.
Skye: Oh, come on, Jax. Don't do this.
Jax: We're business partners. And right now, I'm looking at a partner who I may have misjudged.
Skye: Well, no, Jax, wait.
Jax: You know, I think I'm just going to turn in.
Alexis: And both of you have a lot going on. Yelling isn't going to solve anything, so go over there and you two try to work this out.
Courtney: What is it with you? I mean, I just met you, and already you're ordering me around.
Sonny: You finished?
Courtney: No, uh-uh. Not even close. Somebody says that you're my brother and suddenly you are all over me with rules and regulations and ex-wives jumping out of bushes? And then -- and then causing a major scene as if you were the only person who ever counted for anything. Who died and made you the king of me?
Sonny: Well, what do you expect, Courtney? I told you how I thought about Mike, and you threw him in my face anyway!
Courtney: Well, what about the ambush in the park, huh? News flash -- I can talk to whoever I want.
Sonny: I told you to stay away from A.J. because it was for your own good.
Courtney: He was being nice to me.
Sonny: He hates me. It's for your safety.
Courtney: You are such a control freak! Go give orders to somebody else. I can take care of myself.
Sonny: He's using you to get to me!
Courtney: I don't care! That is still my decision if I want to talk to him.
Sonny: I was trying to protect my family, okay?
Courtney: There's that magic word again. You talk about family? I try to get our so-called family together at the same table, and you turn to ice.
Sonny: Mike left both of us. He does not deserve to have a family.
Courtney: That is not up to you. Don't you get it? My life is not about you, it is about me.
[Sonny kicks phone over]
Alexis: You know --
Sonny: No, no. I don't know.
Alexis: Well, you need to. Don't slam my door.
Kristina: That felt like a thank-you kiss. Ahem.
Ned: Good guess.
Ned: Let me help you. That was a thank-you for making me realize that I need to go back to the fork in the road where I decided to put on that suit of armor, as they say.
Kristina: Oh, well, it's very hard to be spontaneous in a suit of armor.
Ned: Yes, it is.
Ned: Because you can't move. You're frozen.
Ned: And you're afraid. Because your family needs you to be strong and predictable. That's one thing about Eddie Maine. I felt like I could just dance along the edge of a tall building, with or without a net, and sing at the top of my lungs.
Kristina: Ha-ha. That I would like to see very much.
Ned: No one's seen me do that for a long time. And, you know, maybe it's not too late. Maybe I can live that way again.
Kristina: Yay. Another successful surgery accomplished.
Ned: You know, we may not be able to save my grandfather. That's between him and his maker. But maybe -- just maybe -- we can save me. And now, for that real kiss.
Carly: Well, you are very cute, but you already know that. And way sexy.
Zander: Where are you going with this?
Carly: Well, we need something to get in between A.J. and Courtney. You are my secret weapon.
Zander: No. Really, Carly --
Carly: No, no, no, no, you are. You are going to put stars in Courtney’s eyes.
Zander: You're nuts.
Carly: Yeah, you are.
A.J.: Hey. The guy at the desk told me you were here. What, are you crazy?
Skye: Hey! It's club soda.
A.J.: Oh. What's up? Oh, please don't tell me this is all about Grandfather.
Skye: I shot myself in the foot. Couldn't help myself when I ran into Sonny's little brat sister.
A.J.: Ah, don't worry about Courtney. Your brother's got that situation all under control.
Sonny: I'm asking you to leave. I just need to be alone, Alexis. Is that all right --
Alexis: We are going to talk about this.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Bobbie: Is everything all right?
Laura: Not by a long shot.
Alexis: When I want to help you, you have to let me help you.
Sonny: I'm handling it.
Alexis: You think so?
Mike: I know you can't stand me.
Janine: What do you want?
Jax: Why don't you just come out where I can see you?
Skye: This is a 20-year-old kid we're talking about. What are you planning to do to her?
