General Hospital Transcript Thursday 2/7/02
Zander: You've been a great friend. You're more than that.
Sonny: If my sister gets a blood alcohol test, so does yours.
Taggert: I don't have a problem with that.
Gia: Well, I drank quite a bit, Irish coffee and then champagne.
Nikolas: What champagne?
Courtney: You think this accident was my fault.
Sonny: It doesn't matter. Where's my sister?
Officer: They released her.
Carly: What are you doing?
Zander: What you asked.
Carly: When did I ask you to stop in a parking lot in the middle of the night?
Zander: Get out.
Carly: You're stranding me?
Zander: Right, Carly. I'm going to leave you in the dark, miles from home.
Carly: Okay, what, then?
Zander: Would you trust me on this? Just get out of the car.
Carly: It is late, it is freezing, and I'm not budging from this seat until you give me a good reason why, so start talking.
Zander: I'm going to teach you a lesson that you will never forget.
Gia: How's Elizabeth?
Sarah: She's doing fine and she's in stable condition.
Gia: Thank God.
Sarah: I didn't know you and my sister were so close.
Gia: We've been through a lot together, crazy stuff that no one else would really understand.
Sarah: Elizabeth’s going to be fine. We need to make sure you will be, too. Any headaches, blurred vision?
Gia: I can feel the bump on my head, but it doesn't make me dizzy or anything.
Sarah: That's odd. They never completed your blood work.
Gia: Is that bad?
Sarah: It's just weird. It's standard to do a blood alcohol test on everyone in a car accident.
Nikolas: It's Paul, right? You served our champagne?
Paul: Yes, Sir, Mr. Cassadine. I heard about your fiancée’s accident on the news. I hope she's all right.
Nikolas: Well, I appreciate your concern. Yes, Gia and Elizabeth are doing -- doing very well. I would love to be with them right now, but unfortunately, some business has come up. Have you seen -- is Ryan Toughness working tonight, do you know?
Paul: I haven't seen him.
Nikolas: That's too bad. He was my first pick for my head waiter at a resort I own in St. Bart’s. You sure that you haven't seen him? You're positive?
Paul: Would it be out of line to ask you to consider me for the position? I'm extremely well qualified.
Nikolas: Oh, Paul, I'm not so sure about that. I mean, all right, you realize that you would have to leave the country immediately, right?
A.J.: Come on in.
Courtney: I am so glad you're here.
A.J.: What's the matter?
Courtney: I've come to pick up that check you promised me. Here, I brought the key.
A.J.: Absolutely. You know, I'd like to think of myself as a friend, or at least someone you can talk to. What has got you so upset that you feel like you have to run?
Courtney: Just -- oh, God, they don't believe me, okay? Even the people that claim to be on my side, I just -- I have to get away.
A.J.: Wait a minute. Who's making you this miserable? Is it Sonny again?
Courtney: Sonny and everyone else. I mean, there are Alexis and the police, and then there's that snake Gia and her brother the cop. I just got in a car accident, and then they all think that I was --
A.J.: Whoa, whoa, whoa, you were just in an accident? Why didn't you tell me as soon as you got here? Come here. Are you all right?
Sonny: All right, run a search on Courtney’s juvenile records; make sure she has no priors. If the cops file charges, I want to know the judge's name as soon as I can. Is that all right with you?
Alexis: Please don't let this be a prelude to bribery and judicial tampering.
Sonny: Okay, I'm Courtney’s brother. I have every right to know which judge is going to be deciding the case.
Alexis: A yeah, but first things first because there may be --
Sonny: Okay, yeah, first things first -- we do have to find her.
Alexis: Bad idea.
Sonny: What do you mean, bad idea? She was in a serious car accident. She's out there, you know, scared, nowhere to go. Mike is useless. Janine's only solution's going to be to run, which is only going to make things worse.
Alexis: Oh, believe me, there's more than one way to make a situation deteriorate. You need to give her some room.
Sonny: With A.J. Quartermaine looking to use my sister against me, her independence is going to have to wait. Do you understand what I'm saying?
Sonny: Right now I have to make sure she's safe.
Alexis: Will you please just listen to me and do what I say, just for once in your life?
Alexis: So far your dealings with Courtney have run the gamut from uncomfortable to horrific, and I would not be a good friend at all if I were to stand here and let you damage the relationship any further.
Sonny: My sister isn't like me or the rest of her family, and I can't say I blame her because I don't like us much, either. Now, I've been trying to do everything I can for her. You know, I let her stay with Mike, and what does he do? He puts her up in a hotel two floors away from A.J. Quartermaine.
Alexis: And then when you tried to intervene, she ran away and got herself into a car accident.
Sonny: Okay, you know what? I hope you're not saying I'm responsible.
Alexis: No, I'm --
Alexis: Simply saying that she has a driver's license, so I'm assuming that she knows to stop at a red light. What she doesn't know is to trust you because she thinks that you're angry, intimidating, and that all you do is try to tell her what to do.
Sonny: So it would have been better if I left her with Mike, let him fill her head with useless excuses and promises that only last until the next time he's broke? Or should I have done what Janine wanted, just pay her off so, you know, she could send her off to college? That way I’d never see my sister again. Would that have been better?
Alexis: Do you want to be separated from your sister?
Sonny: Well -- it looks like I have no choice, you know, if you ask you. I have no choice, right?
Alexis: I'm just saying that I think that you're both going about it the wrong way. I think that relationships take time, all relationships -- my relationship with you. Your relationship with me, it took time, didn't it?
Sonny: What am I supposed to do?
Alexis: Acquire a skill that the rest of the people on this planet have acquired.
Sonny: Acquire it from who?
Alexis: Well, since I seem to be the only tutor available at the moment, brace yourself because you are going to learn how to wait.
Courtney: They even got this crazy old lady who was out walking her dog to swear that I ran the red light, but it's a lie. My light was green. I -- I know it.
A.J.: I believe you.
Courtney: You do?
A.J.: Absolutely. You tell me the light was green, it was green.
Courtney: But why? Why should you believe that when you barely even know me?
A.J.: I know how this town works. And if the cops, especially Taggert, decide not to like you, give it up. The second reason I believe you is I'm a liar myself.
Nikolas: Thank you.
Bartender: You're welcome.
Nikolas: So, Paul, you've had previous experience at an A-list resort, huh?
Paul: I can get you a copy of my references and my resume.
Nikolas: I tell you what -- why don't you bring them down there with you when you arrive in St. Bart’s. If you can be there tomorrow, the job is in fact yours.
Paul: Thank you, Mr. Cassadine.
Nikolas: Well, my office will take care of all your travel arrangements. I do suggest you get going because your flight leaves in, oh, I'd say three hours.
Paul: I'll be on it.
Nikolas: This works for both of us, Paul. Thank you very much.
Scott: You know, it's not my fault that the guy didn't watch where he was going, you know. And if anybody's to blame, it's you.
Bobbie: Oh, well, how do you figure that?
Scott: Well, because that Latin lover -- he forgot all about his girlfriend. He was, you know, too busy looking at you. And then he just mowed right into us.
Bobbie: Why, Scott Baldwin, if I didn't know you better, I'd think you just paid me a compliment.
Scott: Well, I did. You're beautiful. I know it, you know it, and the whole tango people know it.
Bobbie: In that case, I forgive you for dropping me on the floor.
Scott: Well, I must admit that tango is not my best event.
Bobbie: Oh, hey, that's okay. You know what? At least you're willing to admit it. And I really like a person who is able to laugh at himself when he makes a mistake.
Scott: Yeah, well, not like those doctors you work with, right?
Bobbie: Hmm, those doctors are okay, but I didn't go dancing with any of them. Thank you for taking me.
Scott: I should be thanking you because I haven't had this much fun since -- I don't remember when.
Bobbie: Well, guess what. Me, either.
Scott: Thank you.
Felicia: Is this a date or can anyone join?
Zander: This is the gearshift. Ooh, ah, ooh.
Carly: Zander, you know, this is why it's not going to work -- because gearshift cars -- they're too difficult for a first-time driver.
Zander: Okay. Okay. Then we'll just practice, all right? We won't even turn the car on unless you say so.
Carly: Okay. Practice.
Zander: Okay. Now, right now the car is in neutral, okay, and it's not going to go anywhere because the emergency brake is on, which is right there.
Carly: Okay. Gearshift, emergency brake -- ahem -- yeah.
Zander: Unless you push this button right here.
Carly: Don't push the button.
Zander: Whoa. Okay. We -- we won't. We don't even need to think about that yet, okay? Now, the control panel. This is the speedometer, okay, and that's all you need to pay attention to right now. Okay, now, the pedals are clutch, brake, and gas, okay? Now, you can't shift gears unless you put your foot on the clutch, okay? Now, go ahead and do that. Yeah, right there. Right, right.
Carly: How far do I push?
Zander: All the way down to the floor.
Carly: Are you sure?
Zander: Yeah, just go ahead and just --
Carly: Okay, stop it. I can do that.
Zander: All right, now, but you don't want to stomp on the gas until you get the hang of it. Well, you'll see.
Carly: Okay, and the brake stop us.
Zander: Right. Okay, now, turn the car on.
Carly: Are you insane? It is dark outside, and the roads are frozen. What are you --
Zander: Carly, we're in the middle of a parking lot, okay? The mall is closed. Nobody's going to be here till 7:30 in the morning.
Carly: Look, Zander, you know what? I don't want to do this. Really, I don’t. I don't like cars, I don't like driving, and I really -- I never should have brought it up.
Zander: But you did, okay? So some part of you, you want to learn how to drive. Okay, let me teach you, Carly. Please. Let me do this for you.
Carly: All right. Remember, this was your idea.
Gia: Maybe they thought I didn't need it. I told the doctor in E.R. I had hardly had anything to drink.
Sarah: You had a glass of champagne with the rest of us.
Gia: Nikolas drank most of mine.
Nikolas: She had a sip to be polite. She doesn't like mote. She drinks doom or nothing at all. So I stopped by recovery, and they let me take a look at Elizabeth through the glass. The nurse said that she's going to be okay, and that's what matters, right?
Sarah: I guess. Anyway, at this point, Gia’s blood test doesn't matter. But resting does, so don't tire her out.
Nikolas: Whatever you say.
Sarah: See you later.
Gia: I don't think she believed us about the champagne.
Nikolas: It's all taken care of.
Gia: There were other witnesses who saw me drinking.
Nikolas: The gentleman who waited on us is on a flight to St. Bart's to start a new job at a resort I own.
Gia: Okay, well, what if someone saw me run the red light?
Nikolas: Well, there was a witness, and her name is Mrs. Tilley. And she went to the police to swear that it was Courtney who ran the red light.
Gia: You got someone to lie for me? What about Courtney? Isn't she going to be in major trouble?
Courtney: You believe me because you're a liar?
A.J.: Takes one to know one. Come on. Tell me something that isn't true.
Courtney: I ran the red light.
A.J.: Whoa, you just broke rule number one, okay? It's the major rule. First of all, you tried to oversell the lie. It's true. Look, when you were telling me the truth, that you had the green light, you didn't really look at me. No, no, you were looking off at nothing as if you were reliving the accident.
Courtney: That's crazy.
A.J.: But true, which, I realize, is a contradiction. I mean, if I'm a liar, how will you know I'm telling you the truth when I'm telling you a lie?
Courtney: Just stop. All right, you're making my head hurt.
A.J.: Okay, let's move on. We have to find out if Elizabeth is okay.
Courtney: I tried calling the hospital. It's no use. They won't give you information unless you're family.
A.J.: Did you not hear what I said? Didn't I tell you I'm the best liar there is, hmm?
A.J.: Yes, this is Dr. Levine. Would you please put me through to the nurses' station in recovery? Thank you.
Sonny: What makes you think I don't know how to wait?
Alexis: At the moment, any number of events springs to mind.
Sonny: Well, I waited to -- I waited to get you as my lawyer. The first time we met, you said you would never represent me. It took, what, years and how many wrongful arrests before you'd give in. And then it was only on a case-to-cassis. I bet you've been on retainer to me less than 1/10 of the time I've known you.
Alexis: Please, please don't brag about how you sucked me in and used my principles against me.
Sonny: Well, I'm just saying that, you know, I can be pretty damn patient when it comes to something that I want.
Alexis: Do you want a relationship with your sister?
Sonny: Bad enough to let you teach me how to wait, so go ahead.
Nay: Yeah! Just teach -- teach away. How do we do it? Ho we pass time? Should we, you know, find an activity --
Sonny: To distract us?
Alexis: Yeah, let's do that.
Alexis: How about a nice little magazine here. It's not incumbent that you read it. It's --
Alexis: The purpose is for you to find some pointless repetitious activity.
Sonny: Well, I like activities with a purpose.
Alexis: Then drum your fingers. Some people find that enjoyable.
Sonny: Not me.
Alexis: All right, let's pace. Everybody enjoys pacing. I like to pace. You'll like it, too.
Sonny: We'd bump into each other.
Alexis: Finer pace yourself.
Sonny: No, thank you.
Sonny: Cards. Poker.
Sonny: Five -- yeah, let's play some --
Alexis: You want to gamble.
Sonny: Well, I mean, it beats, you know, talking. Unless, you know, you want to talk. Okay, we'll talk. So, why don't we start by you telling me what you meant when you said our relationship took time. What exactly is our relationship?
Alexis: You know. I mean -- I hated you --
Alexis: And then I didn't hate you as much, and then I would hate you again, and then you would do something redeemable, and then you'd do something that I would find appalling, and then --
Sonny: Then what?
Alexis: Sonny, my feelings for you range from genuine warmth complete exasperation to outright long, and since no by nature a changeable person, I would have to say that's because of you.
Alexis: In two seconds flat, you can go from jaw-droopingly noble to ice cold and ruthless. But there are things that I really like about you. And there are things that I find really appalling about you. But for [missing] could be, of course, because of the exorbitant amount of money that you pay me.
Sonny: You're worth every penny.
Alexis: Thank you for realizing that.
Sonny: After all, who else could do such a terrific job at teaching me to wait? And while you’d don't you go ahead and teach me, you know, some other things.
Alexis: Like what?
Sonny: Anything you think I should know.
Kristina: I must be cosmically mined because every time I open my mouth to speak, somebody gets hurt or somebody gets offended or -- nun well, I didn't expect to see you here.
Sonny: Here I am.
Alexis: Goody, [missing[ cardinal rules to learning how to wait is that the more people participating, the easier it is to pass the time. I'll go make popcorn.
Kristina: At waiting?
Alexis: He'll fill you in.
Kristina: Ahem. Hi. I'm assuming that you didn't tell Alexis that I said that she loved you. Okay. Good. Good, because -- well, the thing is that I asked her about it this morning, and turns out that I was wrong. Amply wrong about it.
Kristina: Yeah. 100% incorrect. I mean, she does like you , as a friendd, as a client, but, know, I should've known. But the truth is that -- remember, I met [missing] call are not 100% accurate yet. So turns out you're completely the wrong form relieved.
Sonny: “Wrong guy"? What does that mean?
A.J.: Yes, I will check back in with you tomorrow for an update.
Courtney: Pretty slick, Dr. Levine.
A.J.: What did I tell you I do best. Anyway, it looks like Elizabeth is going to recover, so your situation is getting better by the minute.
Courtney: Everyone s blames [missing].
A.J.: I know how you feel. I do. I could walk on water. I could levitate. I could cure cancer, and my family would still think I'm lying. I hate it. But you know what? I remain in their faces because if I run, they win.
Courtney: There's no way for me to win here, A.J. If I go to my dad, it'll make my mom angry. If I go to [missing] us. If I go to Sonny, he'll take care of everything -- just snap fish and make all go away. But I'd be giving in. [Missing] way that Sonny expects me to act, being the [missing] expects me to be and then he'd just throw it in my father's face that he could save me when Daddy couldn't. Not that he won't take care of me, it's just he's so cold about it.
[Two lines missing]
Bobbie: Mmm. , Amazing how much better things looks after a little chocolate. You don't even mind being dropped on the floor.
Scott: I didn't know that tango dancing was a contact sport.
Bobbie: In a matter of speaking, we did.
Scott: Where the hell is that [missing]? I'll be right back.
Felicia: Did I really interrupt some? Are you on a date with Scott?
Bobbie: No. No, I'm not dating Scott.
Bobbie: I take the fifth.
Felicia: I -- I guess I'm just projecting.
Bobbie: About Scott?
Felicia: No, just about dating in general. And [missing not, I've got two tickets to a play. You want to go with me?
Bobbie: Actually, I've got a better idea. Why don't you ask Scott? I'm sure you'll have a great time.
Felicia: No, I'm asking you! I want go with [missing]
Bobbie: Okay. In that case, I'd love to.
Bobbie: You know, I really had fun with him tonight.
Felicia: Well, you just keep on having a good time too. I'm not going to let you use me to buff from Scott. I'm going to go. Tell him I said good night.
Bobbie: CIA --flight?
Bobbie: Sit down.
Felicia: No, no, I'm going.
Bobbie: Where are you going?
Felicia: Have a good time.
Bobbie: oh, come that's silly. Stay.
Carly: Oh, this is a lot owner than the parking lot.
Zander: You want to go back [missing] driven you're on the road, right? Oh, that [missing]
Zander: That means we need to shift. Are you ready?
Carl yeah, I am.
Zander: All right, foot off Carly: P on the clutch.
Zander: Yeah. Now let off the clutch, fun the gas. See. Easy.
Carly: We did it.
Zander: That's right. You did it.
Carly: I am, aren't I? I'm driving.
Carly: I'm driving. W, itemIt’s not that bad when you get used to it
Zander: What did I tell you?
[A few lines missing]
Zander: The cop said that the Volvo hit two girls in a sports car.
Carly: Are they dead?
Zander: I don't know. The cops seem to think that one of the girls is pretty bad.
Carly: I bet the guy in the Volvo was drunk.
Zander: Hey, Carly, accidents happen for all kind of reasons, okay? That doesn't mean that no one should drive. I know for your first lesson you did really, really well.
Carly: Okay, take me home.
Zander: First you got to promise me that this isn't going to scare you.
Carly: Okay, Zander, I want to go home. Right now, okay? If you don't want to, then I’ll get out and -- and I will call a cab.
Zander: Whoa, whoa, hey, Carly. No, it's okay. All right, it's no problem. You just -- you don't even have to look. Close your eyes and I'll make sure you get home. Okay?
Carly: I bet she was laughing. She probably didn't even see the other car come until it was too late.
Gia: It's bad enough that I ran the red light. I don't want to frame someone for it.
Nikolas: Okay, but this is Sonny Corinthos' sister. He is probably paying someone off as we speak to make sure this case disappears.
Gia: And what if he isn't? What if the police press charges and when they call the witness, she tells the truth and says that I was the one who ran the red light?
Nikolas: Well, I made sure that Mrs. Tilley will not be in town much longer. She wanted to retire in Palm Beach, and I made that happen. Just like I will make sure that you don't have to face any charges.
Gia: Nikolas, thank you. I am so sorry I put you through this.
Nikolas: No. Don't be. How else can I prove how much I love you?
Zander: Can I get you anything?
Carly: Like a drink? No. That's the last thing that I want. That guy's blood alcohol level -- it was four times the legal limit. He had two previous D.U.I.s and he had just left a bar. He was on his way -- he was late for a sales meeting.
Zander: You're talking about another accident, not the one tonight.
Carly: Yeah, at Robert F. Kennedy high school. A head-on collision between a Ford truck and a powder blue M.O. Convertible. Three fatalities -- Pam Farrell, Nancy Wallace, and the driver of the car, Carly Roberts.
Carly: Her real name was Charlotte, but everyone called her Carly. She was my best friend.
Zander: Best friends with the same name.
Carly: Well, I was Caroline then. Caroline Benson from the wrong side of town. I'd known Carly since I was in kindergarten. She had this long, beautiful, blond, straight hair, and mine's wavy unless I dry it, so I almost always did and I still do. Even now. God, everything was just so easy for her. You know, and then -- and then after she died and I moved away from home, I -- I started using her name because I thought maybe that -- I don't know -- would make me into somebody that I liked a lot better than myself.
Zander: Did you see the accident?
Carly: Yeah, it was -- it was after cheerleading practice, and Carly was giving Pam and Nancy a ride home. She had -- she just turned out of the parking lot, made a left on Armstrong Drive, and I was running after them, and I saw this black car. It just crossed the center line and headed straight for the convertible. And I bet she was laughing and she -- she never even saw it coming until it was too late.
Zander: Why were you running after them? Why were you running after Carly’s car?
Carly: You know, it doesn't -- it doesn't matter.
Zander: Then why are you so scared? Hey. Hey, whatever it is, the only way to get passed it is to say it out loud.
Carly: I can’t. I can’t.
Zander: Hey. Hey. You can trust me.
Carly: I've never told anyone. Not even Sonny.
Carly: I'll try.
Kristina: You're not exactly your typical businessman, Sonny. Come on. On top of which, you're involved in this ghost marriage with your ex-wife that keeps coming back to haunt people. So it's a damn good thing Alexis isn't in love with you because you'd probably end up hurting her.
Sonny: You know what, Kristina? I admire you because you're looking out for your sister, and I'd do the same with mine if she'd let me.
Kristina: Now, wait -- wait a second. I think that you're missing my point here.
Sonny: No, no, look. The point is you want to protect Alexis. So do I. End of discussion.
Kristina: Right. But the nicer you are to her --
Sonny: Okay, you know what? You know what? You look a little tired. Why don't you go ahead and go to bed?
Kristina: Yeah, you're right, Sonny. I'm exhausted. You tell Alexis that I’ll wait with her some other time.
Alexis: Who you calling?
Alexis: Have some popcorn instead. Where's Kristina?
Sonny: She went to bed.
Alexis: Hmm. I heard you guys talking.
Sonny: We were.
Alexis: What were you talking about?
Carly: Okay, Pam and Nancy, they lived near Carly, and I lived across town, and we were all crammed into her car. And at the last minute, I realized that I left my sweater, so I jumped out to go get it. And when I came back, they were pulling away. And so I yelled after them to wait, and Carly, she just turned around and she said, "Take the bus." And so there I was with my sweater in my hand, and I heard them laughing. And I saw her hair start to blow and I was screaming at them. And I just screamed, "I hope you crash and burn."
Zander: Hey. Hey, it wasn't your fault.
Carly: I did. No, I even tried to say I was sorry and -- and I think I was yelling at her to wait, and I think she heard what I said. And so what she did is she turned around and she looked at me. And the reason she didn't see that other car coming is because she was looking back at me -- at me and she couldn't swerve the car around because of --
Zander: Carly, Carly, Carly, stop, stop, hey, hey. It wasn't your fault, okay?
Carly: I was the first one to the crash site. And his horn, it just -- it just kept blaring and blaring. Something was wrong with it and -- and Carly’s car was this -- this, like, crumpled pile of metal. And I saw Pam. And she was lying on the ground, and I didn't -- I didn't even stop for her. I just kept screaming. I kept screaming for Carly. And I couldn't find her. I couldn't -- then I saw her hair. Her long blond hair, but it was all -- it was all bloodied and tangled up, and -- and she was lying there dead. My best friend, she was dead because of me.
Zander: No. Drunk driver crossed the lane and hit her. That's why she died.
Carly: But I said it, Zander. I did, I said it. I --
Zander: Hey, hey. Carly, it was not your fault. It was not your fault.
Zander: It's okay.
Scott: How do you feel about hockey?
Bobbie: Never played, don't want to learn.
Scott: No, I mean about going to the game because I happen to represent André the Affronter.
Bobbie: Is he the guy who knocked out the opposing center's front teeth?
Scott: No, it was the center on his own team. But he, you know, caught the guy in bed with his wife, so there was a -- anyway, I represent him. He's giving me house seats anytime I want to go. You want to go?
Bobbie: Sure. Why not?
Scott: That's what I like to hear.
Nikolas: The doctor said to get plenty of fluids, so drink up.
Gia: Hmm. I hate orange juice unless it's fresh squeezed.
Nikolas: Oh, and this coming from the woman who used to buy 15 cans at once to save money.
Gia: That was before I was engaged to a prince. You spoiled me.
Nikolas: And it has been my pleasure.
Gia: Nikolas, I really scared myself. I almost wrecked everything.
Nikolas: It's over. Okay? It's over. And once Elizabeth is out of recovery, we'll just -- you know, we'll forget it ever happened.
Gia: Oh, my God, Elizabeth.
Nikolas: What? What about Elizabeth?
Gia: Elizabeth knows the light was red. Just before the crash, she yelled for me to stop. When she wakes up, she'll tell the truth -- that I ran the red light, not Courtney.
Courtney: Thank you so much, A.J. You have been incredibly generous.
A.J.: We both know I didn't work for that money. I won't miss it, so please stop thanking me.
Courtney: I'm embarrassed to ask, but --
Courtney: Well, do you think you could lend me an extra 40 bucks for a bus ticket? I doubt if there's anyplace open this late.
A.J.: Wait a minute -- bus? No, no, no, no, no. You're not taking the bus. Here, take my car. Come on.
Courtney: I -- I couldn’t.
A.J.: It's not my only car. So, come on, please, take it. Just -- whenever you get to where it is you're going, you call, and I'll have someone pick it up. All right? You just go out the elevator here, go down to second-floor parking. When you come out the elevator, you turn right. It's parked right there. You can't miss it. It's a blue Mercedes. Okay?
A.J.: Come here. It's okay.
A.J.: It's all right. I got you.
Alexis: You were talking about me with my sister?
Sonny: You discuss me with mine.
Alexis: Well, that's because I was interceding with Courtney on your behalf. Kristina and I don't need that kind of help. We're fine.
Alexis: I think. What were you two talking about?
Sonny: Well, we were just discussing whether it's safe for you to be around me.
