>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Laura: She may have helped terminal patients by ending their lives too soon?

Skye: You think Sonny did this?

Jax: Who else could it be?

Janine: Courtney --

Sonny: How was I supposed to know?

Janine: Courtney's leaving. Wait.

Sonny: Come on.

Mike: Sonny, no!

Gia: You can be so naive sometimes --

Elizabeth: Gia, stop! The light's red! Gia!

[Tires screech]

A.J.: Told you you'd regret it.

Skye: You'll have to be more specific. I regret any number of things.

A.J.: All that unnecessary hand-wringing over Grandfather -- the guilt, the pleas to God, to fate, for chance.

Skye: I wouldn't go that far.

A.J.: You did want him to live.

Skye: I still do. I just want him to stop blackmailing people, okay? Especially me.

A.J.: I knew it. I knew it. What's the old goat have on you?

Skye: Let's just say that Grandfather is under the assumption that he's taking back his old position as C.E.O.

A.J.: Ooh, in other words, he's got you cold and it's major.

Skye: This is a temporary setback, A.J., okay? I had a sentimental moment, and it came back to bite me. But I will handle this. I always do.

A.J.: Grandfather is not easily handled, especially if he's got the upper hand.

Skye: Oh, A.J., your love and support mean everything to me. You know that?

A.J.: Well –

Melissa: Darn it. I knew he would still be asleep.

Man: Is it safe to wake him?

Skye: Isn't cardiac I.C.U. for family only?

A.J.: Yeah.

Skye: Wait a minute.

Melissa: Skye, this will only take a minute, I promise.

A.J.: Did my grandfather call you?

Man: Ms. Bedford requested the meeting.

Skye: Since when do you call upon Quartermaine attorneys?

Melissa: Mr. Franklin was kind enough to draft an addendum to Edward’s will.

A.J.: On whose authority?

Melissa: My authority. Now, I just need to explain it to Edward.

A.J.: No, no, no, no, no. Explain it to us first.

Melissa: Okay. This addendum takes me out of Edward’s will. I'm not beneficiary of anything.

Skye: Why the sudden change of heart?

Melissa: This whole thing almost cost me my job. And if I don't do something quickly, it's going to cost me my reputation.

A.J.: Then you don't want the money?

Melissa: No, I don't want the money. I just want to help people, okay? I just want to help people and ease their pain. That's all I've ever wanted.

Roy: Hey.

Laura: Roy. Are you all right?

Roy: Oh, goodness. You know, I just -- I called a friend at the bureau to check on Melissa in Chicago, what she did as a nurse.

Laura: Yeah? What'd you find out?

Roy: Well, I hung up on the second ring. I realized, I mean, I'm just not thinking straight.

Laura: Oh, Roy. This is really hard for you, isn't it?

Roy: Word gets out that I'm asking around, and the bureau could open an investigation or something.

Laura: Would that be such a bad thing?

Roy: Well, even assuming that Melissa is innocent -- which I do -- an investigation would ruin her career.

Laura: No. No, not necessarily.

Roy: Would you hire a nurse who'd been accused of killing her patients even if she didn't do it?

Laura: Yeah, I see what you mean.

Roy: Yeah.

Laura: Well, what if there were a way to look into her records privately?

Roy: You mean like break into the hospital?

Laura: Maybe.

Roy: Oh, maybe.

Laura: Wait a minute. You know, this may seem a little unorthodox, but it could possibly work.

Roy: Unorthodox could be good.

Laura: Ainsley, is my son still there? Great. Send him in.

Roy: What are you thinking?

Laura: Well --

Lucky: Hey.

Laura: Lucky, hi.

Lucky: What's up? I was just heading out.

Roy: Hey, man.

Laura: Have you got a couple minutes?

Lucky: Yeah, I sure do. What do you need?

Laura: I think you might be able to help Roy find something he's looking for.

Jax: This won't take long.

Sonny: Whatever you want, I can't help you.

Jax: You know, you're not in charge anymore, Sonny.

Sonny: Whatever, Jax.

Jax: What does it take to get your attention? How many more women have to die?

Lucky: So, what do you need exactly?

Laura: Are you sure about this?

Roy: I need to know the truth.

Lucky: The truth? The truth about what?

Laura: So, Lucky, how's the computer hacking going these days?

Lucky: Well, I still know my way around, if that's what you're asking.

Laura: Good. Do you think that you could gain access to the records of General Hospital?

Lucky: You want me to break into their computers?

Roy: Maybe this isn't such a great idea.

Laura: Okay. What about Chicago Memorial, then?

Lucky: Probably. But why?

Laura: We're trying to clear someone's name, and, you know, we're not going to use the information for any other purpose.

Lucky: Sounds like fun.

Roy: You don't mind doing that?

Lucky: Why?

Laura: Great.

Lucky: Did Dad put you up to this or something?

Laura: No, Dad had nothing to do with it.

Lucky: But it's just his sort of thing. Isn't that right, Roy?

Roy: Flat-out his sort of thing. And you are definitely your father's son, man.

Lucky: Well, thank you -- mostly. Okay. Names. All right. I got the hospitals. What are we checking for?

Roy: We're checking Melissa Bedford.

Lucky: For what?

Laura: We need information about her work with terminally ill and elderly patients.

Roy: Yeah.

Lucky: All right. I can do that.

Laura: Okay. Now, we want to see if there are any irregularities or patterns.

Lucky: Of what?

Roy: Well, we don't know. Just, you know, whatever you can come up with.

Lucky: What, do you want to know if she knocked off these people?

[Lucky chuckles]

Lucky: I was just kidding.

Roy: Oh, I know -- just whatever you can come up with, man.

Lucky: I know Melissa. I know she wouldn't hurt anybody, Roy.

Laura: Your mouth to God's ears, Lucky.

Edward: You woke me up for this nonsense?

A.J.: You weren't any more asleep than we are.

Edward: There. Now you're out of the will and the ingrates are back in it like it used to be -- for the moment.

Melissa: Thank you.

Edward: You know, you're either a fool or a saint, hmm?

Melissa: You realize that that completely takes me out of your will.

Edward: Yes.

Melissa: You can't bequeath me anything ever again.

Edward I signed it. What else do you want?

Melissa: I really appreciate this, Edward. Thank you.

Edward: You are making a very serious mistake, my dear. Are you still here?

A.J.: He's a witness.

Edward: A very expensive one at that.

Melissa: Thank you so much for your help.

Mr. Franklin: Feel better, Mr. Quartermaine.

Edward: Hmm. Why don't you two jackals follow his example and -- and leave.

A.J.: Our pleasure.

Skye: Yeah, our pleasure.

Edward: I wish this hospital had a hundred more just like you, hmm. I only hope that saving my life wasn't a mistake.

Melissa: You need to rest.

Edward: Nobody wants me alive, and I'm so sick of those ingrates.

Melissa: Edward, go to sleep.

Skye: Can't you at least try to help, A.J.?

A.J.: Huh. Why should I clean up your mess?

Skye: My mess? Who sent me a fake threat from Sonny Corinthos?

A.J.: Got the job done, didn't I? What's the problem?

Skye: If Edward tells Jax that I'm setting him up, I --

A.J.: How did Grandfather know?

[Skye sighs]

Skye: I thought he was dying, all right?

A.J.: You told him?

Skye: So?

A.J.: Didn't I tell you to watch your back with the old man?

Skye: Look, the point is --

A.J.: You messed up!

Skye: That Jax is on his way over to threaten Sonny right now because of you.

A.J.: Oh -- everything's my fault, is it? You know, you are really good at this.

Skye: I am not kidding, A.J.

A.J.: Okay, Skye, what do you want me to do about it?

Skye: All right. Do you really want me to tell Courtney everything that's going on, huh?

A.J.: Go ahead. Threaten me. Everyone else does.

Skye: Oh. So you won't mind if I tell Courtney that you're just seducing her to pay Sonny back?

A.J.: She already knows I'm a conniving jerk.

Skye: And this is a good thing?

A.J.: Mm-hmm. I told her.

Skye: Why would you do that?

A.J.: Because honesty is part of my new charm. Haven't you noticed? She already knows Sonny has every reason to hate me, that I'm a drunken fool who's pretty much squandered away all the opportunities that's come his way, and that I'm a loser -- always have been, always will be. Yeah, I'm pretty sure I mentioned that. Yeah. Hmm.

Skye: Why?

A.J.: Because people like to hear the truth. And if you tell it first -- especially if it's really bad -- they don't really believe it anyway. Either way, you're covered. It's beautiful.

Skye: Huh. The truth?

A.J.: Mm-hmm.

Skye: What a concept.

A.J.: I'm on fire.

[A.J. chuckles]

Sonny: I'm running a business here, Jax.

Jax: Yeah, the coffee business, right? And you never threatened anyone?

Sonny: Enjoy. They just came in from Sumatra.

Jax: Well -- no, thanks.

Sonny: Probably too strong for you anyway.

Jax: We both know that the coffee business is a front anyway.

Sonny: Then why are you wasting my time?

Jax: Starting all over again, aren't you, Corinthos? Surrounding yourself by women who can't fight back or who won't fight back.

Sonny: Anything you say, Jax.

Jax: Alexis --

Sonny: Right.

Jax: You know, at least you pay her for her services.

Sonny: Right, right.

Jax: There's Kristina.

Sonny: Uh-huh.

Jax: Well, she's not exactly a big fan of yours, is she? And Skye. Even your sister Courtney.

Courtney: Seat belt.

Courtney: Fire. Okay, no fire.

Courtney: I'm okay. I'm okay. Oh, how did this happen? Oh, my God. Who else? My God. Are you okay? Anybody? Oh, not you. No, please, not you. Gia -- oh, my God -- think. Focus, focus. Phone. Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

Courtney: Hey!

Max: Mr. Corinthos wouldn't want you to involve the police.

Roy: Dude, what is taking so long?

Lucky: You know, I'm going to get there in a second, all right? Security's just a little tighter these days.

Roy: I just -- I mean, I'm sure we're not going to find anything anyway.

Laura: No, probably not.

Roy: I shouldn't have bothered you guys with this mess, actually.

Laura: It's not a problem.

Roy: Well, I do appreciate your trying to help.

Laura: You'd do the same for me or anyone in my family.

Roy: Yeah, I would, but, still --

Lucky: I just found something.

Roy: What? What do you got?

Lucky: I just didn't expect to see so many.

Roy: What do you mean? What do you mean, "so many"? You mean from Chicago?

Lucky: Yeah, there's some from Chicago, but there's some from General Hospital, too. You know what? I'm just going to print this stuff up, all right?

Roy: These are terminal cases?

Lucky: Yeah. The first one's Chicago and the second's from General Hospital.

Roy: How many are there?

Lucky: There's a lot more.

Roy: Let me see those.

Laura: Melissa worked in Chicago for many years, right?

Roy: Yeah.

Laura: And it was mostly in I.C.U. and in E.R.

Roy: Right.

Laura: So that would probably account for a lot of these.

Roy: Probably.

Lucky: Couldn't there be more than one Melissa Bedford?

Roy: Wouldn't that be a nice thought.

Laura: Can I see some?

Lucky: Yeah.

Laura: No. All of these people could not have died under Melissa’s care.

Lucky: Yeah, there's no way.

[A.J. whistles]

Janine: Hey!

Mike: Look, just let go of me.

Janine: Well, where are you going?

Mike: I'm going after Courtney.

Janine: You expect me to believe that?

Mike: I don't care what you believe.

Janine: Really? Well, you better care, or you're not going to see my kid.

Mike: She needs me.

Janine: You're about 12 years late.

Mike: Look, I am trying to change all that.

Janine: Superdad strikes again.

Mike: If I had the money, I would pay up.

Janine: Like you're ever going to have $198,000!

Mike: I'm trying to get this right, Janine.

Janine: Do you have that little Superdad T-shirt and the cape, you know, flaps in the back?

A.J.: I'm sorry to bother you.

Mike: I'm going after my kid.

Janine: It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a broken nail.

A.J.: Would you like me to call security?

Janine: Did you call security?

A.J.: No, no, of course not, but I -- I wouldn't, but, you know, sound carries. It's a high-end place.

Janine: Oh, I'm sorry. Yeah, yeah. I just -- he just gets me so mad. I --

A.J.: Are you okay?

Janine: Oh, I'm fine, thanks. How are you? Do I seem okay to you? Do I seem happy? Do I seem thrilled about being here? That loser gambled away every chance we ever had. And now I am supposed to believe that he's truly trying to make everything okay, like nothing ever happened, like I didn't raise her alone the last 12 years? No, this is -- are you coming in or what?

A.J.: Well, yeah, sure, if you -- if that's okay.

Janine: If Mike Corbin thinks he can just waltz back into her life and do this big daddy, "Father Knows Best" routine, you know what? He is just wrong. That -- what do you want?

A.J.: Well, actually, I'm here to see Courtney.

Janine: Well, obviously she's not here.

A.J.: Family disagreement?

Janine: Because of you. You could have been a little bit more upfront with me about how much Sonny hates you.

A.J.: Is that a problem?

Janine: It was for me. I defended you, and I almost got my head taken off for it.

A.J.: Wait. You stood up for me to Sonny? Thank you.

Janine: I don't know why I did it. Instinct, I guess -- not that mine's been very good lately.

A.J.: I think your instinct is perfect.

Sonny: My sister has nothing to do with you.

Jax: So everything's going well? Glad to hear it.

Sonny: Skye Quartermaine is a waste of time. Alexis is the best lawyer I know. I'm busy, and you're gone.

Jax: I'm not going to let you hurt them, Sonny.

Sonny: Don't you ever get tired of trying to save Brenda? You couldn't do it. Move on, Jax!

Jax: I'm going to stop you cold.

Sonny: Yeah?

Andy: Michael Corinthos Jr.

Sonny: Call my lawyer.

Andy: Yeah, well, the order says to serve this in person.

Sonny: Good night, Detective.

Andy: You know, you may want to take a look at that, Mr. Corinthos. It's important.

Sonny: All right.

Andy: The order refers to this building and everything else you own on the docks. They're all condemned.

Courtney: No way am I going with you guys.

Max: Look, when you're safe, we'll call an ambulance.

Courtney: I am safe, all right? Give me my phone!

Johnny: No one can know you were here.

Courtney: What, were you following me?

Johnny: Come with us.

Max: Mr. Corinthos will want to help you.

Courtney: Uh-uh. No. No -- no way possible. No, God -- let me go! There's people hurt! Don't you even care?

Johnny: The sooner you leave --

Max: The sooner we'll call an ambulance.

Courtney: Okay. Okay, all right, just let me go! God.

Taggert: Stop! Nobody's going anywhere. Have a nice day, big brother.

[Music plays]

Laura: Okay, l of these cases seem fine to me.

Lucky: This one seems a little weird.

Roy: Melissa was just -- she was taking care of so many really sick people.

Laura: Although this one seemed to be getting better.

Lucky: I don't know about that.

Roy: You know, a lot of these records are -- they're impossible to figure out.

Laura: That's true.

Roy: And I'm sure there's a perfectly simple explanation for the ones in this stack.

Laura: There may be.

Roy: There's no stack of paper that's going to convince me the woman I love is some kind of angel of death.

Laura: That's not what we're saying at all. I mean, look, all of these people were very old and they were in a lot of pain.

Lucky: And they didn't have much family.

Roy: Right. But people who are old and frail and sick -- they die sometimes, regardless of whether they got family.

Laura: Yeah, and they were all terminal. I mean, that much is clear.

Roy: Exactly.

Laura: I mean, there really could be a logical explanation for all of it. There is a pattern. Roy?

A.J.: I appreciate you putting in a good word -- I mean, with Courtney.

Janine: Yeah, well, Sonny Corinthos didn't appreciate it.

A.J.: This surprises you?

Janine: I don't need him as an enemy. And I've noticed that in this town, if you don't pick sides, you get run over.

A.J.: You're catching on.

Janine: Can't help but wonder, though.

A.J.: About what?

Janine: Standing up to Sonny Corinthos -- what's in it for me?

A.J.: I admire the way you get right to it.

Janine: Thanks. Then answer the question.

A.J.: Maybe we should just lay our cards out on the table.

Janine: Maybe.

A.J.: Okay, this -- Janine, from the moment I met your daughter, something happened.

Janine: She's a cute kid. What can I say?

A.J.: I fell in love with her.

Courtney: You have to call an ambulance.

Taggert: Don't tell me my job, ms. Matthews. This is lt. Taggert. We have a two-vehicle accident at Meadow Road and Lake View. Unclear. Send me at least two ambulances, and we have three suspects fleeing the scene of an accident.

Courtney: No, no, wait --

Max: Don't --

Taggert: Shut up! All of you, you stay put. Oh, my God.

[Gia groans]

Taggert: Gia -- Gia, are you all right?

Gia: Marcus --

Taggert: Shh, shh, shh. Don't move, okay? I'm here now. Everything's going to be okay, all right? I got an ambulance on the way. You just hold on, all right, Gia? Elizabeth? Elizabeth? This is Taggert -- damn it. This is Taggert. Where is my ambulance?

Sonny: Do me a favor, Capelli. Tell the commissioner to send that to my lawyer.

Andy: I'm not sure there's time.


Andy: Don't mind the noise. They're just putting up condemnation notices.

Jax: I'm closing you down, Corinthos. With a little help from the city, of course. You see where it says Five Star Redevelopment company? That would be me.

Andy: You got 48 hours to vacate, Corinthos, or you're in contempt.

Jax: What are you doing?

Skye: I am not afraid of you, Sonny Corinthos, and I am sick of hiding out.

Jax: Skye, you shouldn't be here.

Skye: Why should you have to face Sonny alone? I will not let you fight my battles for me.

Sonny: All right, you know what? What are you guys trying to pull?

Skye: I know how much you hate me and my brother and that you'd do anything you could to hurt us. Well, I won't allow you to frighten me. I refuse to run away.

Jax: Game over, Corinthos, as of now.

[Phone rings]

Sonny: Yeah?

Max: First off, your sister's okay.

Sonny: Okay, I understand.

Max: But there was a car crash. Courtney was driving your father's car.

Sonny: All right, I'll be right there.

Jax: What was that about?

Skye: I don't think I want to know.

Jax: You know, what if I hadn't been here?

Skye: Thank God you were.

Jax: I mean, confronting Sonny on his own turf?

Skye: Okay, it was stupid.

Jax: And dangerous.

Skye: I didn't think it through.

Jax: You know, this isn't like you, Skye. You aren't stupid. So why take the risk?

A.J.: Yeah, well, you know what? Maybe I shouldn't have said anything.

Janine: Well, love can be kind of tricky.

A.J.: Janine, I know, and it's a loaded word, but I mean it. I fell in love with her.

Janine: Cake?

A.J.: No, thank you.

Janine: Good. More for me. Mmm. I'm kidding.

A.J.: I don't think you're taking me so very seriously.

Janine: A.J., you find my daughter attractive. What, am I supposed to be impressed?

A.J.: No, I want to lay the world at her feet.

Janine: Oh, I see.

A.J.: I want to take her places she's only dreamed of.

Janine: Show her off?

A.J.: If that's what she wants, absolutely. I want to give her everything -- even more than she's ever imagined. The home of her dreams.

Janine: Oh, a dream home, I see.

A.J.: I want to marry your daughter. I want to make Courtney a Quartermaine and all that implies.

Courtney: Why don't you both go back to Sonny and tell him to leave me alone.

Max: I'll tell him, Ms. Matthews. But in the meantime, you need to keep your mouth shut. You don't say anything to anybody, especially the cops. Do you understand?

Gia: Where's Elizabeth?

Taggert: She's on her way to the hospital.

Gia: Is she going to be all right?

Taggert: She will be.

Gia: You don't know, do you?

Taggert: Gia, they are doing everything they can, okay?

Gia: No, that means it's really bad, isn't it?

Taggert: Gia, just relax, all right? Okay?

Gia: Do you know what happened?

Taggert: Looks like you collided with that woman over there.

Gia: I don't believe this.

Taggert: Do you know her?

Gia: She tried to steal money from me right after Christmas.

Taggert: Well, looks like she just ran a red light, too.

Elizabeth: Gia --

Gia: Oh, my God!

Elizabeth: Oh, my God!

[Car horn beeps]

Gia: Yeah, that must be what happened.

Officer: Lieutenant?

Taggert: I'll be right back, okay?

Gia: Okay.

Courtney: Are you okay?

Gia: First, you steal from me, and then you crash into me?

Courtney: Wait. You ran the red light.

Gia: No, I didn't.

Courtney: You didn't even slow down.

Taggert: Right over here. My sister -- she was driving the Mercedes, all right? You give her everything she needs, okay?

Paramedic: Just lay down gently.

Taggert: Okay. This is what we're going to do, all right? We're going to go down to the E.R. -- everybody except you two. If I see you, if I even smell you, I'm going to arrest you, all right? Bye. Now, we're going to let the doctor check both of you out, and then we'll decide who's responsible, okay?

Courtney: I don't think I'm hurt.

Taggert: But you're going.

Melissa: Edward?

Edward: Alan?

Melissa: No. It's me, Melissa.

Edward: Oh.

Melissa: Hi.

Edward: I'm glad you're here.

Melissa: You want me to page Alan?

Edward: No, no, no. Don't bother.

Melissa: He cares about you.

Edward: No. No. None of them does, not really.

Melissa: Well, they are trying.

Edward: Why'd you take yourself out of my will?

Melissa: Because I don't want your money, Edward.

Edward: Hmm. I wish my daughter could be like you -- so kind and generous.

Melissa: Thank you.

Edward: A daughter I could -- I could be proud of.

Melissa: You're a good friend, Edward.

Lucky: How come you had me break into these records?

Laura: We needed to know.

Lucky: Yeah. Well, do you really think Melissa did all this?

Laura: Honey, I don't know.

Lucky: What if we're wrong? What if I accessed the wrong files or something?

Laura: Her name's on all of them, right?

Lucky: What -- what if they're there to make her look bad?

Laura: Lucky, if I had known this was going to upset you, I wouldn't have asked you to do it.

Lucky: Mom, it's just -- it's like I've invaded her privacy or something, her past life or --

Laura: Well, wait a minute. Just listen, okay? If there's even the slightest chance that she's hurting patients, wouldn't you want to expose that?

[Phone rings]

Lucky: Hello. Yeah, this is Lucky Spencer. Who's this? What? What happened? Well, is she hurt? All right, I'm on my way. I'm coming.

Laura: What happened?

Lucky: It's Elizabeth -- she's been in some sort of car accident. They said it was real bad.

Laura: Oh, no. No.

Doctor: That's my trauma?

Paramedic: Yeah, the one we called in. Our female car accident. B.P. is dropping, Sir.

Doctor: Give me numbers.

Paramedic: 80/60 and falling fast.

Doctor: Any more changes?

Paramedic: No, she's still hypotensive and tachy.

Doctor: All right, give me bloods. Order a trauma panel and UA, four units of O-negative, type and cross for two more. Do it now! Get us into C.T. right way, okay? Go.

Paramedic: Oh, look, try not to move, okay?

Gia: Where's Elizabeth?

Paramedic: Don't worry about that now.

Taggert: Gia --

Gia: Marcus, I'm so scared.

Taggert: I know, baby, I know. It's going to be fine, okay? I'll find Elizabeth. All right? You stay here.

[Edward chuckles]

Edward: Oh, thank God you're here.

Melissa: Oh, Edward, you know I am not as perfect as you think I am.

Edward: Oh. Have a few secrets, do you? Well, you know that they can be quite profitable if they're managed well.

Melissa: Is that right? Secrets, huh? Is that what gives you a will to live?

Edward: You might say that.

Melissa: Well, that's wonderful.

Edward: Oh. If you only knew.

Melissa: I guess the hard part is when, you know, people just have nothing left. They have no health, no hope.

Edward: Thanks to you, I have hope. But that doesn't mean I'm going to be around forever.

Melissa: Oh, I wouldn't be so sure about that.

Edward: No, my dear. To me, death is like a dinner party that's been penciled into my calendar. I don't want to go, but there's no way I can keep from it.

Melissa: I think if you stay away from those cheese blintzes, you might not have to go to that dinner party for a very long time.

Edward: Hmm.

Ned: Any chance you can get him to sign a contract to that effect?

Edward: Now, do you see how my family treats me? I am nothing but a signature.

Ned: I was joking.

Edward: Why aren't you at work?

Ned: Feeling better, are we?

Edward: No. Not since you showed up.

Melissa: Please try not to upset him.

Edward: Ned, this girl is someone who really cares about me.

Melissa: Hey.

Roy: Hi.

Melissa: How long have you been out here?

Roy: Oh, just a little -- not too long. Why?

Melissa: Something wrong?

Roy: You got a second?

Melissa: Sure, I do. Look like you just lost your best friend.

Skye: After you left the hospital, I thought, "Why should you have to protect me?"

Jax: Are you sure that's what I was doing?

Skye: Oh, you weren't upset when you saw that picture of me with my face marked out?

Jax: Come on, Skye, anyone would be.

Skye: I had to prove that I'm not afraid of Sonny.

Jax: Why?

Skye: I know it doesn't make any sense. I guess I'm just upset about my grandfather, that's all.

Jax: Why? What has Edward done now?

Skye: I don't know why I let him get to me. You know, I thought that if I came down here and I faced Sonny on my own --

Jax: What does Edward have to do with Sonny?

Skye: I should have known something was off when Grandfather wanted to see me after surgery. I don't know. I guess it's a medication he's on or something. Grandfather claims that I invented that intruder. He accused me of making up all those threats from Sonny just to get closer to you.

Jax: Did you?

A.J.: Janine, I know this must all sound very strange. It's way too early to be talking about love, much less marriage, but --

Janine: Yeah, hang on. It is. Sounds like you've got a prenup already drafted or something.

A.J.: Courtney wants a prenup, she'll have it.

Janine: Oh, so you don't want a prenup?

A.J.: I just want to spend my life with your daughter. Money doesn't matter to me.

[Janine laughs]

Janine: Rich people always say that. It's so cute.

A.J.: It's true.

Janine: Wow, a wedding. Does seem really sudden.

A.J.: What can I say? I fell in love.

Janine: I'm listening.

A.J.: I think Mike -- he was a fool for what he did to you and Courtney. Courtney will never have to deal with that. Not that the Quartermaines are perfect, but --

[Janine laughs]

A.J.: I just -- I believe that she deserves better than she's got. You both do.

Janine: A.J., what do you want from me?

A.J.: Just your blessing.

Janine: To marry my daughter?

A.J.: I won't go any further without it.

Janine: I see.

A.J.: Now, I want to make myself perfectly clear. You're entitled to all the benefits, of course, as a Quartermaine in-law.

Janine: Am I, now?

A.J.: Then you're on my side?

Taggert: Hi. So, what'd the doctor say?

Gia: Just a minor concussion.

Taggert: You know you're going to stay here tonight, right?

Gia: I know, I know. How's Elizabeth?

Taggert: She's not good. Dr. Caldwell told me there's internal injuries.

Gia: But she'll be all right, right?

Taggert: They're waiting for results, Gia. They're doing all they can to stop the internal bleeding. I'm sorry.

Gia: I can't believe this happened.

Taggert: I know, I know.

Courtney: It's okay if I go home?

Nurse: Yes. Caldwell signed your chart. But if anything changes -- stiff neck, anything -- come back right away, okay?

Courtney: I will. Thank you.

Taggert: Lt. Taggert, PCPD. I'm going to need a B.A. on this one.

Courtney: A B.A.?

Taggert: Blood alcohol toxic screen, all right?

Nurse: Okay.

Courtney: You think I was drinking?

Taggert: The sooner, the better.

Sonny: Taggert -- get your hands off my sister.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Skye: Edward's right. I faked the whole thing.

Alexis: Why are you trying to avoid me?

Taggert: If there was alcohol involved, I'm going to find out.

Laura: How is she?

Amy: Not good.

Lucky: Elizabeth, it's me. Do you hear me?

Courtney: Are you trying to protect me or do you think I'm lying?
