>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Laura: I will never go after Luke again.

Bobbie: Oh, Laura.

Roy: I never realized how deeply it bothers you to see people in pain.

Nikolas: I am the one responsible for what happened to Lucky and Elizabeth.

Alan: What's going on?

Ned: Skye is in there.

Skye: Jax actually believes that I’m worth something. I don't care how many lies I have to tell, it's worth it.

[Horse neighs]

Nikolas: It's awfully early. What are you doing here?

Gia: Well, I woke up and you were gone.

Nikolas: That's because I didn't want to wake you.

Gia: Well, you were tossing and turning all night. I just wanted to make sure that you were okay.

Nikolas: I'm fine, I promise you. Okay? Besides, you know how much I love to ride. Clears my mind. I get into the open and all I'm aware of is the wind rushing by, the sound of Sheba’s hooves. I feel my own heart beating. The rest of the world just kind of falls away.

Gia: So why don't you make the rest of the world just fall away?

Nikolas: Absolutely.

Man: Ms. Spencer?

Laura: Yes? May I help you?

Man: In point of fact, ma'am, I'm here to assist you.

Laura: Oh. Has something happened to Elton?

Man: Mr. Herbert regrets to inform you that he is indisposed. Something to do with throwing his back out at a cha-cha contest.

Laura: Oh. Oh, poor Elton.

Man: He has instructed me to assure you that he has embarked on a program of chiropractic adjustment and acupuncture and anticipates a return to the office tomorrow.

Laura: I see. Well, tell him not to rush.

Man: As you wish. In the meantime, he has retained me as your substitute assistant.

Laura: And you are?

Man: Ainsley, ma'am.

Laura: Very nice to meet you, Ainsley.

Ainsley: Nice to meet you, ma'am.

Laura: How much do you know about Deception?

Ainsley: Mr. Herbert took the liberty of briefing me in advance, should I ever be asked to substitute for him.

Laura: He is remarkably thorough. But I do appreciate your help.

Ainsley: My pleasure, ma'am.

Laura: Are there any messages for me?

Ainsley: One. [missing]

Laura: May I see that?

Ainsley: I found it when I opened your e-mail. I took the liberty of printing it out.

Laura: All right. Ainsley, do me a favor and delete it and destroy the hard copy, all right?

Ainsley: If you'll permit me, ma'am, sounds somewhat mysterious.

Laura: Oh. You know what? It's just my husband. He likes to play these silly little games with me sometimes. But you know what? I'm not going to take the bait this time.

Ainsley: What if it's real?

Laura: Then I will make Luke the new face of Deception. Oh, Lucky.

Lucky: Hey. I didn't walk in on something, did I?

A: No. No, no. Not at all. Lucky, this is Ainsley.

Lucky: Hi. Lucky Spencer.

Laura: Ainsley's filling in for Elton.

Lucky: Oh. Something happen?

Ainsley: Cha-cha contest. Will there be anything else, ma'am?

Laura: No, not at all, and I do appreciate the help. So -- ah, you're ready for the photo shoot, I see.

Lucky: Yeah, yeah, I'm about ready to head on over there. I was just curious what you thought of those test shots that I brought over here for you.

Laura: Oh. You know, Lucky, can I be honest? I'm not at all worried about the photo shoot. I know you're going to do a terrific job. But I am a little worried about you.

Lucky: Why?

Laura: Why? Come on, Lucky. Please tell me what really happened between you and Elizabeth.

Audrey: Thank you. Then it's settled. You'll stay with me while you adjust to your internship at General Hospital.

Sarah: Thanks for having me, Gram.

Audrey: Oh, darling, it's my pleasure. I'm just so thrilled you've decided to come back to Port Charles.

Sarah: You didn't pull any strings to get me the job, did you?

Audrey: What? Would I do that?

Sarah: Absolutely.

Audrey: Oh, Sarah. They saw your records, and you were their number one choice. It's the hospital's good fortune to have such a promising young intern on staff, and they know it. Oh, I am proud of you. Elizabeth, isn't it wonderful what your sister's accomplished?

Elizabeth: It's really something.

Audrey: I think we should make this brunch a weekly event. What do you say, huh?

Sarah: On one condition.

Audrey: What?

Sarah: Once my salary starts coming in, you let me pay for it.

Audrey: No, no, no, I won't hear of this. It will always be my treat. Now, I do have to get to that meeting, so if you'll excuse me, but, please, you two stay here just as long as you like, huh?

Elizabeth: Thank you, Gram.

Audrey: Mm-hmm.

Sarah: Bye.

Audrey: Bye.

Elizabeth: Still perfect.

Sarah: What?

Elizabeth: Oh, nothing. Nothing.

Sarah: Um -- I hope I'm not intruding, but I am so sorry about the way things worked out for you, Lizzie.

Elizabeth: Everything's just fine.

Sarah: I mean about the wedding. What went wrong?

Elizabeth: God, Sarah, you sure don't waste any time, do you?

Alan: I have the idea that you may come out of this whole ordeal a better person. Well, if not better, at least easier. Maybe you're going to reconsider your whole life and look at what's right in front of you and see how lucky you really are. And see your glass is half-full. I dream about you waking up and looking at me and seeing --

Edward: Alan?

Alan: I'm right here, Father.

Edward: I hope you're sorry for what you've put me through.

Alan: Still as ornery as ever. No wonder Dr. Selwyn thinks you're going to make a full recovery.

Edward: Where's Lila?

Alan: She's home resting. She's thrilled that you're doing so well.

Edward: I dreamed she was here.

Alan: She was here. She's been here every day. She's coming back tomorrow.

Edward: Oh.

Alan: Listen, right now you just must think about no stress, no sudden movements, no jumping out of bed --

Edward: Orders, orders, orders.

[Alan sighs]

Alan: Can I get you something, Father?

Edward: Get me Skye.

Skye: What happened?

Jax: You fell asleep while we were strategizing about how to deal with Sonny.

Skye: Why are you staring at me like that?

Jax: I'm not staring, I'm studying.

Skye: Well, it's unnerving. You're staring at me like you either want to throttle me or -- what's going on in that head of yours, Jax?

Melissa: Please don't think I'm a bad person.

Roy: Where did that come from?

Melissa: I know. I know that it's sacrilege for a cubbies fan like myself, but it was a gift from my patient, so I figured people would understand.

Roy: That your heart is in the right place.

Melissa: Yes. Well, first day back on the job, I should probably go get dressed.

Roy: Yeah, I'm really glad that worked out for you, babe.

Melissa: Thanks. And thank you for being the one who convinced me to stand up for myself and fight for myself.

Roy: Well, you sure did. That was quite a speech you made to Alan last night.

Melissa: I believed every word of it.

Roy: Yeah. It's almost like you're on some kind of holy mission to take responsibility for your patients.

Melissa: I am. You know, I see somebody in pain and I just have to do something to stop the suffering.

Roy: Yeah.

Skye: What are you looking at?

Jax: Not quite sure.

Skye: I'm really not that much of a mystery.

Jax: On the contrary. You know, every time I think I've figured you out, you surprise me by doing something entirely different.

Skye: For example?

Jax: Well, when I first met you, I dismissed you as shallow -- which can still be true on occasion.

Skye: Let's move on to the part that surprises you.

Jax: Okay. Well, you can also be charming and funny and caring. So I'm wondering, who are you, Skye? Are you the woman that cares so much about her family that they can make her cry? Or are you the cold-blooded one that told an innocent 20-year-old that Edward’s heart attack was her fault? So which one is it? Are you the woman trying to make a better life for herself, or the manipulator bent on revenge?

Skye: You tell me.

Jax: Okay, well, I'd have to say you're a little of all those things.

Skye: If you're trying to compliment me, you're going to have to do a little better than that.

Jax: Well, I'm simply trying to factor in all the information I've gathered about you. Believe me, that's not an easy task. You're a complicated woman, Skye.

Skye: Is that a bad thing?

Elizabeth: I thought we were going to wait until I was ready to talk about my non-wedding.

Sarah: I already heard some of what happened from Lucky and Nikolas.

Elizabeth: Oh. So you went behind my back?

Sarah: You and Gia were hiding out in the bathroom.

Elizabeth: You pried the details out of Lucky and Nikolas and then pretended not to know anything?

Sarah: I was waiting for you to tell me, but you never did.

Elizabeth: Well, shouldn't that tell you something?

Sarah: I was concerned for you, Lizzie. God, the last I heard from you was an e-mail saying you were getting married. But then when I mentioned the word "wedding" last night, it was like I'd said "funeral." I knew something was wrong. So I decided to ask what happened from the people who love you. I go way back with Lucky and Nikolas, remember? Further than you do.

Elizabeth: I know. I'm sorry. I guess I should be glad that they filled you in. Saves me having to go over every excruciating detail of my latest failure. Not that you'd understand because you've never failed at anything in your life.

Sarah: I don't want you to feel like --

Elizabeth: I don't want your sympathy, Sarah.

Sarah: That's not what I meant.

Elizabeth: I like myself. I enjoy living in Port Charles. I love my friends, I'm proud of my art. I don't think much about the past. Then you show up, and suddenly I have this knee-jerk reaction from childhood. Just -- just try to ignore it, okay?

Sarah: Look, from what I understand, what happened wasn't your fault -- or Lucy’s. It was something left over from what you went through with Helena Cassadine. I understand what it's like to lose someone you love.

Elizabeth: I haven't lost him, Sarah.

Lucky: I know what I'm doing, Mom.

Laura: Lucky, love is like magic. You cannot force it to happen. It either does or it doesn't, and it's usually at the most unexpected times.

Lucky: Sure. But Elizabeth and I have been in love for years. We know how it feels.

Laura: So, then, you would also know when it's not there anymore.

Lucky: Mom, everything is fine, really.

Laura: Is it, Lucky?

Lucky: It is. Elizabeth's happy.

Laura: Oh. Now, that's not what I asked.

Lucky: Well, if you're waiting for me to pour out my deep inner feelings, I don't do that stuff.

Laura: Wow. Like father, like son.

Lucky: How are you guys doing, by the way?

Laura: Oh, you know, more of the same. Your father's being his usual impossible self.

Lucky: Exactly. Relationships don't go in a straight line. Sometimes they're not that perfect. Some days are better than others. But when you love someone -- look, Elizabeth deserves this, okay? After everything that she's gone through with me, everything I've put her through.

Laura: But, Lucky, what about you?

Lucky: I want it, too. I look at the pictures of the way that we used to be, and I want that. I want to love Elizabeth like I used to. And I will. I'm going to be late for the photo shoot.

Laura: Lucky? If you pretend that your relationship is something that it isn't, you're going to end up hurting yourself and her.

Lucky: Yeah.

Laura: I love you.

Lucky: I love you, too. I got to go.

Nikolas: Hey. Hey. What is it?

Gia: I just -- I love you so much.

Nikolas: I love you, too. Come here.

Gia: You know, when something touches you, it touches me, too. I know you've been thinking about your father.

Nikolas: I don't want you to worry.

Gia: No, I'm not, I just -- just hear me out, okay? Look, it's natural for you to think about your father. I mean, if you didn't, then you wouldn't be the kind, decent person that I love if you didn't feel some connection with your father. You know, it doesn't mean that you two are alike. Or that his darker side is a part of you in any way.

Nikolas: You are a part of me, and you always will be.

Gia: And you will always be able to make the rest of the world fall away.

Nikolas: That's right.

Gia: Although I have to admit the riding gear helps. Seeing you walk out of the mist with your boots and your face all flush and your hair all wind-blown. I'm starting to like this equestrian thing.

Nikolas: Okay, good. Then you can wake up with me every morning and feed Sheba.

Gia: No. Forget the horses.

[Nikolas groans]

Gia: I like the man.

Nikolas: Okay.

Gia: And the clothes.

[Nikolas laughs]

Gia: And especially the grand finale in the hay.

Nikolas: Hmm. That's not bad. But you know something? I'd be lost without you.

Gia: Well, you have me forever.

Nikolas: Yeah?

Gia: And I have nothing to do except be with -- oh, my God!

Nikolas: What? What?

Gia: Oh, my God!

Nikolas: What?

Lucky: Where the hell is Gia? We got to get started. She was supposed to be here by now.

Man: I couldn't find her. Maybe she's on her way.

Lucky: All right. Excuse me. Has any of your staff by chance seen my model, Gia Campbell?

Man: Well, I have instructed my doorman to watch for her.

Lucky: Okay. Thank you. I just hope she gets here soon.

Elizabeth: I'm not going to lose Lucky. We'll be fine.

Sarah: Elizabeth, I was just trying to tell you I understand.

Elizabeth: I don't think you do.

Sarah: You're obviously going through a rough time. Who wouldn't be?

Elizabeth: And I'm sure you'd find the perfect way to handle it.

Sarah: Actually, I'd had some problems of my own with a guy I had been seeing. That's one reason I decided to come back.

Elizabeth: Well, what happened?

Sarah: I don't want to get into it.

Elizabeth: Did he break up with you?

Skye: Well, I should be relieved you haven't reduced me to a stereotype.

Jax: Far from it.

Skye: So, you appreciate complicated women?

Jax: Well, unpredictability -- that can keep life interesting.

Skye: So tell me. Which one of my quirks are you curious about?

Jax: Well, whatever you want to tell me. Who and what do you like?

Skye: Well, I -- I like my father. I care about what he thinks about me -- maybe a little too much -- but I will let my mother the analyst handle that one. I like people who are strong and who know what they want and they go after it -- like you, Jax.

Jax: Like you, too, Skye.

Jax: Well, you just described yourself -- a strong person who knows what she wants and goes after it.

Skye: Does that make you uncomfortable?

Jax: What do you think?

Skye: I think there are men who couldn't handle a woman like that. They prefer to take the initiative themselves. They -- they want to be relied on, not have their authority questioned. The idea that a woman can make her own decisions -- well, that just scares them to death.

Jax: Yes, there are men like that.

Skye: But you're not one of them?

Jax: Would I be standing here if I were?

Skye: Probably not.

Jax: You definitely know what you want, Skye. I admire that in a woman.

Skye: Do you know what this take-charge kind of woman would like to do right now, Mr. Jacks?

[Phone rings]

Jax: Your pocket is ringing.

Skye: Oh. I didn't even know I brought this thing.

Jax: Well, you know, a good C.E.O. is never far from the phone. I'm impressed.

[Ring]

Jax: Or I will be if you answer that.

Skye: Hello?

Alan: Skye, it's me. I'm at the hospital.

Skye: Is Grandfather all right?

Alan: Yeah, he's recovering well.

Skye: Oh. Well, that's good news.

Alan: When he woke up before, he -- he asked to see you.

Skye: Me?

Alan: Yeah, and I told him he should wait until he was a little bit stronger, but he was adamant.

Skye: Did he say why?

Alan: No, and when I suggested that you postpone the visit, he became very agitated and he insisted that I call you.

Skye: Would you trust me if I came?

Alan: I deserve that. And I would understand if you decided not to come. I just told father that I would call you, and I've done that.

Skye: Well, I'll think about it.

Jax: That was about Edward?

Skye: Yeah. Edward just woke up from surgery, and guess who the first person is he asks to see.

Jax: You?

Skye: Yeah. That's crazy, isn't it? I mean, just when you think you've heard everything --

Jax: You going to go?

Skye: Oh, I don't know if I'm really in the mood for my family right now, but -- oh, what the heck. If Grandfather wants to make a stab at being a better person, then I can meet him halfway, right?

Melissa: Edward?

Edward: Oh. Melissa.

Melissa: Hi. Starting to see a little color in those cheeks.

Edward: Aside from the -- from the anvil that seems to be sitting on my chest, I'm -- I'm feeling on top of the world.

Melissa: I'm glad to hear it. You gave me quite a scare, my friend.

Edward: You saved my life, dear. I won't forget that.

Alan: I won't forget it, either.

Melissa: Hi.

Edward: You know, I was right to put you in the will.

Melissa: Okay, we will be having a discussion about that later.

Edward: What's to discuss?

Melissa: I do not want to hear about this now. Right now I want you to focus on getting better and nothing else. And I will see you later.

Edward: All right.

Melissa: Well, I can see that Edward is back to his curmudgeonly old self.

Alan: You never cease to amaze me.

Melissa: Why? What did I do now?

Alan: You didn't do anything. We put you through this terrible ordeal, and here you come back so upbeat and positive. No anger, no bitterness.

Melissa: What's the point? I'm back at this job that I love, and that's really all that matters.

Alan: You're very special. Welcome back.

Melissa: Thanks. I'll see you later.

Roy: I need to see Luke.

Laura: Go west.

Roy: What?

Laura: Luke is sailing out of the sunset with the left-handed boy.

Roy: I don't understand that.

Laura: Well, neither did I, but that was the best I could decipher his latest e-mail for me. Now, listen. If Luke thinks that I am going off on some wild goose chase after him, he is wrong.

Roy: Okay. Well, if you hear from him, would you ask him to call me? It's important.

Laura: Roy?

Roy: Yeah?

Laura: You seem kind of upset.

Roy: Oh, I'm just a little thrown is all.

Laura: What is it?

Roy: Oh, it's okay, Laura. I'll work it out.

Laura: Roy?

Roy: Yeah?

Laura: You know, Luke may not be back for weeks. If there's something bothering you, I'd be happy to listen.

Roy: It's Melissa.

Laura: Is she all right?

Roy: She's fine. She's fine. I need you to talk me out of something because what I'm thinking is crazy.

Lucky: Hey, do me a favor. Call Deception. See if Gia --

Gia: Hi. I'm so sorry that I'm late.

Lucky: What took you so long?

Gia: Would you buy that I didn't know my way to the service entrance?

Lucky: Sure, if the maitre d' hadn't told me that he had a doorman posted to show you the way.

Gia: Okay, then why don't I just admit that I have no excuse and grovel for forgiveness?

Lucky: No, no, no, no, no. No groveling necessary. I'm just glad you didn't blow us off.

Gia: Well, I wouldn't do that to you or Laura.

Lucky: Oh, sure, not before, you know, your engagement with his royal highness.

Nikolas: Okay, I'm going to be inside.

Gia: Okay. Get ready for a fabulous shoot. I am going out in style.

Woman: You're glowing. It should be illegal to look this good.

Lucky: Is that hay on your jacket?

Gia: Where?

Lucky: I don't want to know.

Gia: Let's just say that I'm looking forward to my new life.

Lucky: You worked really hard for this Deception gig, Gia. You sure you're not going to miss it?

Gia: A little. I mean, the people that I get to work with, the fun of modeling.

Lucky: And on billboards and in commercials.

Gia: Yeah, that's all a kick, but I'm really excited about my future. I mean, how many girls get to marry a true -- well, a prince?

Lucky: Hold that thought.

Man: Mr. Cassadine?

Nikolas: Yes. Mr. Mosley?

Mr. Mosley: Yes.

Nikolas: It's great to finally put a face with the name, after the transaction we've discussed.

Mr. Mosley: My God. You know, it's uncanny, but I guess you hear that all the time.

Nikolas: Hear what?

Mr. Mosley: Well, you're the image of your father.

Nikolas: Thank you. So you met my father?

Mr. Mosley: Once or twice. We didn't actually work together, but we crossed paths over a couple of financing deals.

Nikolas: I hear he was a great businessman.

Mr. Mosley: Well, "brilliant" would be a better word. But judging from your proposal, I'd say you've inherited many of his traits.

Nikolas: Thank you.

Mr. Mosley: I'm sure your father would be very proud.

Gia: You know, the one thing I am not going to miss about modeling is pretending to enjoy a warm spring afternoon when it's the middle of winter, there is snow outside, and I am basically freezing.

Lucky: Well, think of it as a small price to pay for all that glamour.

Gia: Yeah, easy for you to say.

Woman: A little something to warm you up.

Gia: Oh, thanks.

Woman: It's Irish coffee.

Lucky: All right, time to rock-and-roll.

Gia: Hmm. Okay. I'm ready for my close-up anytime.

Lucky: All right, here we go.

[Camera shutter clicks]

Sarah: No, the guy I was seeing didn't break up with me.

Elizabeth: So, what happened?

Sarah: It's a long and boring story. Some other time. I just hope you and Lucky can work things out. He's a great guy and so handsome.

Elizabeth: He always was.

Sarah: He was cute. So was Nikolas. Then I go away for a few years and come back to find them both turned into drop-dead gorgeous.

Elizabeth: Sure didn't waste any time noticing.

Sarah: Elizabeth, I'm not interested.

Elizabeth: I know. I know.

Sarah: Lucky and I were teenagers. It was another lifetime. Where is this all coming from, anyhow?

Elizabeth: You're the one gushing all over him.

Sarah: Competing with you is the furthest thing from my mind. It always was, even when we were little.

Elizabeth: Then why did you always try so hard?

Sarah: I don't know. I guess I didn't want to let people down.

Elizabeth: And I did?

Sarah: That's not what I meant.

Elizabeth: You know, maybe we better skip the whole childhood memory thing.

Sarah: Why? We had some good ones.

Elizabeth: Oh, really? Name one.

Sarah: That -- that grade school production of "The Wizard of Oz" that we put together for charity.

Elizabeth: Right, and I remember somebody had to be Dorothy.

Sarah: You had a great part, too.

Elizabeth: Oh, right, the wicked witch.

Sarah: You got to fly around in that harness!

Elizabeth: Yeah, remember, I scared all the kids?

Sarah: Okay. Okay. You can be Dorothy next time.

Melissa: Hi, Felicia.

Felicia: Hi. Is Tony around?

Melissa: You know, I don't think he's due in for about another hour.

Felicia: An hour?

Melissa: Is there something I can do?

Felicia: Uh, no. No. I'll wait.

Melissa: Is something wrong?

Felicia: I'll wait for Tony.

Melissa: Okay. I'll go get a resident.

Felicia: No! No, don't say anything. It's really ridiculous, please.

Melissa: What's ridiculous?

Felicia: You promise you won't laugh?

Melissa: Scout's honor.

Felicia: Georgie was playing with one of her dolls, and she broke it, and I told her I'd fix it, so I was gluing it together with this super glue. And as I was holding it together so that it would bond, it -- I glued it to my own hand.

Melissa: Oh --

Felicia: Now, you promised you wouldn't laugh. You promised!

Melissa: It could be worse.

[Melissa laughs]

Melissa: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Shh. That's unbelievable!

Roy: Melissa was more than compassionate about the man suffering. She seemed to think it was her personal mission to help him. And now this patient of Tony’s died unexpectedly on Melissa’s shift, and, you know, she seemed to feel it was for the best. So you add all that with her feelings about wanting to free the sick from their misery --

Laura: I can see why you might be concerned.

Roy: Yeah, I mean, the whole thing, you know? It's just -- it's just so hard to reconcile. I mean, I've known her for years. I've -- we've gotten to this place where we trust each other completely.

Laura: Mm-hmm.

Roy: And suddenly I'm -- I'm wondering what's going on in her head.

Laura: And she's never discussed this with you?

Roy: No. I mean, she's an amazingly compassionate woman, always has been. Not just as a nurse, but as a person. People -- you know, they tell her personal stuff about themselves all the time. You know, they just come up to her. I mean, you know, they sense that she cares. And she really does. And now I'm questioning what that's about, why she takes on other people's problems all the time, gets so immersed in their lives. I mean, that's supposed to be a good thing, right?

Laura: Yeah.

Roy: Yeah. So why do I have this nagging thought in the back of my brain? Could this sweet, caring woman I've fallen in love with -- could this woman be capable of --

[Roy sighs]

Roy: I can't even say it.

Laura: Roy, you think she may have helped these terminal patients by ending their lives too soon?

Edward: So, did you deliver my message to Skye?

Alan: I did.

Edward: Then why isn't she here?

Skye: You called, Grandfather?

Edward: All right. Everybody out. Skye and I need some privacy.

Alan: You need to relax, Sir.

Edward: Stop stressing me, Alan, and leave.

Skye: I won't do anything to agitate him.

Alan: All right.

Jax: I'll leave you two.

Skye: What did you want to say to me?

Edward: Gotcha.

[Camera shutter clicks]

Lucky: That's it. Great photo shoot, everyone.

Gia: Thank you.

Lucky: Nice job, by the way.

Gia: Didn't I tell you?

Lucky: Yeah. How about I buy you lunch? Celebrate the end of an era?

Gia: You're on. Hmm. And then I'm going to dedicate myself full-time to being Nikolas Cassadine’s princess.

Lucky: Thank you.

Roy: I don't want to jump to conclusions.

Laura: You're not. I think you're thinking about it from every possible angle.

Roy: This is a woman who has a kind word for everyone. She picks up every stray who comes into her path.

Laura: And those are certainly good qualities.

Roy: And I'm in love with her. I love -- I love everything about her. You know, she's a great -- she's like a regular girl in the best sense of that. Favorite color is blue, she has a sweet tooth. She loves to bargain hunt, goes jogging every morning down by the harbor and waves to everybody. She's -- doesn't wear perfume. She tells me her dreams. Trusts me. And now I want to start digging around in her past, looking for proof that she did something terrible. Why would I do that?

Laura: Because you have to. If there's any hope for the two of you as a couple, don't you think you have to get answers to these questions?

[Melissa laughs]

Melissa: Wait. I'll tell you, one of my favorites is a poor little girl came in -- I shouldn't be laughing -- with her braces stuck to her diary because she'd been kissing the name of the boy she had a crush on. She was purple with embarrassment. There you go.

Felicia: Oh, locked braces -- sounds like a preteen nightmare, doesn't it?

Melissa: Absolutely. Oh, no, but wait, wait, wait -- this one. One time back in Chicago on New Year’s Eve, this big, huge, burly trucker comes in dressed as a baby, diaper and everything. I guess he'd been at some kind of costume party, you know, and dressed as a baby because of the New Year, but anyway --

[Felicia laughs]

Melissa: Apparently, this big, giant safety pin stuck him in the side.

Felicia: Oh. He came here just because he was stuck with a safety pin?

Melissa: Well --

Felicia: Sounds like he was drunk.

Melissa: Yes. I'm telling you, the things I've seen -- you haven't seen anything.

Edward: You came to visit me, Skye.

Skye: Yes, yes, I did, when you were unconscious.

Edward: You certainly assumed so, or else I'm sure you wouldn't have told me about how you've been lying to Jax and pretending to be the victim of a stalker just to gain his sympathy. Mm-hmm. Yeah. I heard it all.

Skye: I -- I didn't mean what I said. I --

Edward: Let's just cut to the chase, shall we? I might be able to forget everything I heard -- for a price.

Edward: A very steep price.
