>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Elizabeth: It's time to let each other go.

Lucky: I won't give up on you, Elizabeth.

Nikolas: I will do whatever it takes to make this problem go away, Gia.

A.J.: I refuse to live my life in fear of your brother, and I'd hate to see you live in fear of him, too.

Sonny: The more I tried to reach out, the further I pushed her away.

Luke: I have a plan.

Laura: Would you like to share it with your fiancée?

A.J.: Courtney? Breakfast will be here any minute. Your favorite -- blueberry pancakes. Courtney? Hello?

Courtney: Blueberry pancakes? Mmm.

A.J.: Now, that's a look.

Courtney: I am sort of playing dress up.

A.J.: You can't quite make up your mind, is that it?

Courtney: I am thinking that if I plan this out just right --

A.J.: Mm-hmm?

Courtney: I can wear everything at least once.

A.J.: What's the rush? The clothes are yours.

Courtney: You know, Sonny would hate that I accepted these.

A.J.: Sonny won't find out.

Courtney: I thought about him all night last night.

A.J.: I'm sorry to hear that.

Courtney: You know, if he finds out that you're hiding me out here --  [knock on door]

A.J.: It's breakfast.

Courtney: I'm -- I'm not even hungry anymore --

A.J.: He doesn't know you're here. I won't let him find out, I promise.

Courtney: I know, but I --

A.J.: Just relax, okay? Come on.

A.J.: I'm coming! That coffee had better -- Sonny. Good morning.

Gia: What do you mean, my car isn't there? It has to be. The one with the passenger door crashed in? First another car slams into me, and now you've lost my car? No, you better find that vehicle, and I mean now.

Elizabeth's voice: Gia, stop, the light's red!

Gia!

Nikolas: Hey.

[Gia gasps]

Nikolas: Are you all right?

Gia: I am now.

Nikolas: Are you sure?

Gia: Yeah. I'm just worried about Elizabeth, that's all.

Nikolas: I know, I know. I know. Don't be. Okay?

Gia: And the body shop lost my car. Can you believe that?

Nikolas: Yes. As a matter of fact, I can.

Gia: That's not my car key.

Nikolas: They're not? Sure, they are. 2002 B.M.W. convertible?

Gia: What?

Nikolas: Red --

Gia: Get out.

Nikolas: Red. It's a red one.

Gia: What? No, you didn't!

Nikolas: Well, it's in the garage.

Gia: Oh, my God. Thank you!

Nikolas: Oh, you are so welcome. So, how about a test-drive, huh?

Gia: Couldn't you see me zipping up the coast of Italy?

Nikolas: So you want the coast of Italy? I'll give you that, too.

Gia: You would, wouldn't you?

Nikolas: Absolutely.

Gia: No.

Nikolas: No what? You don't want the car?

Gia: It's wrong. Everything is terribly wrong.

Elizabeth: I'm almost out of here, right?

Bobbie: We'll have to check with Dr. Caldwell.

Sarah: And I don't want you rushing anything. What you need is more rest.

Elizabeth: You are no fun.

Bobbie: Listen to your sister --

Sarah: Yeah.

Bobbie: And get some rest. See you later.

Elizabeth: Okay. Thanks.

Sarah: I'll check in later.

Elizabeth: All right.

Lucky: Is -- is Elizabeth better?

Bobbie: Well, she's certainly happier than I've seen her in months.

Lucky: Good, because I'm just getting started.

Bobbie: I hope it all works out, Lucky.

Lucky: Oh, I know it will. But I'm going to need your help -- both of you.

Sarah: For what?

Lucky: Let's just say I got to bend the rules a little bit.

Sarah: What do you mean by "bend"? Slight infraction or total mayhem?

Lucky: Well, I just keep thinking, "what would my dad do in a situation like this?"

Bobbie: Uh-oh.

Lucky: Exactly.

Luke: Hey. Good morning.

Laura: Luke. Ow.

Luke: Glad you were able to get a little sleep.

Laura: What about you? Did you sleep?

Luke: No. We're still in Texas, but we're together.

Laura: We've got to get out of here.

Luke: Yeah, we have a plan.

Laura: Oh, right, the plan.

Luke: We do remember everything, don't we?

Laura: Yeah.

Jennifer: Good morning, precious.

Luke: Good morning, my blushing Texas rose.

Jennifer: Is that a compliment?

Luke: It's meant to be. Yeah, sure.

Jennifer: Why should I believe you?

Luke: Men like me don't lie to blushing Texas rosebuds, peaches.

Jennifer: So, what'll it be, my silver-tongued devil? Till death do us part or just death?

Luke: Hey, now, wait, wait, wait. Is that any way to treat the man who loves you? Is that any way to talk to someone who's going to walk away from her today and marry you?

Sonny: Good morning, A.J.

A.J.: Is it Michael? Is he all right?

Sonny: Michael's all right.

A.J.: I thought you were room service.

Sonny: This won't take long.

A.J.: So, what can I do for you? Is this about Skye --

Sonny: Forget Skye.

A.J.: And the whole meat locker thing? You know women and their wild accusations.

Sonny: Skye doesn't matter.

A.J.: I'm not saying you had anything to do with it --

Sonny: Okay --

A.J.: But if you did, you know --

Sonny: I don't want you looking for Courtney.

A.J.: So she's not back yet?

Sonny: Courtney doesn't concern you, A.J.

A.J.: So nobody's spoken to her?

Sonny: And -- if I find you had anything to do with this --

A.J.: I didn't.

Sonny: You better hope that's true.

A.J.: You see, Sonny, I would never separate a child from their loving parent.

Sonny: Courtney's my sister, not my child. Don't forget that.

A.J.: Whatever.

Sonny: Yeah. I'll see you later.

A.J.: Mm-hmm.  

[Door closes]

A.J.: Courtney -- coast is clear.

Courtney: Are you kidding?

A.J.: It's safe.

Courtney: You call this "safe" -- my brother coming in here anytime, night or day? I -- I left this out.

A.J.: So what? He didn't see it, all right?

Courtney: Well, how do you know? Maybe he did.

A.J.: He would've said something.

Courtney: What if he's -- what if he's back -- coming back? What if he's coming back with those men that work for him and --

A.J.: He's not coming back, all right?

Courtney: I can't do this anymore.

A.J.: You really want to leave?

Courtney: No! I don't know! I just --

A.J.: Okay, then you know what? Maybe I -- maybe I have a plan.

Courtney: Like what?

A.J.: I'm thinking you and I need to take a nice walk on the dock, have a corn dog. Yeah.

Roy: Excuse me? Ma'am, how much longer is this plane going to be in Houston?

Flight attendant: Oh, we regret the inconvenience, sir.

Roy: We've been stuck on the runway here for six hours. I've got a good friend in serious trouble in West Fork, and I've got to get there.

Flight attendant: As soon as we finish boarding all other passengers from another flight --

Roy: I'll tell you what- I'm just going to rent myself a car.

Flight attendant: You have to remain onboard for security purposes, sir.

Roy: No, I don't, actually.

Flight attendant: Sir -- excuse me, Sir? You cannot deplane.

Roy: You know, I will take care of the security problems myself. Don't you worry about it. Thank you.

Felicia: [Southern accent] Hold on there, big fella.

Flight attendant: Do you know this man?

Felicia: Yeah.

Roy: No.

Flight attendant: I'm calling the captain.

Roy: Uh -- that's fine. I will speak to the captain, I'll deal with the F.B.I., but I got to get off this plane.

Felicia: No, I don't think so. You know how these ex-husbands can be.

Flight attendant: Oh. I understand.

Felicia: You didn't think I'd track you down?

Flight attendant: I'm keeping an eye on you.

Roy: Ex-husband?

Felicia: [Normal voice] Hi.

Roy: Hi.

Felicia: Are you trying to get arrested?

Roy: You know, Felicia, I don't know who told you about this, but you should stay out of it.

Felicia: Stay out of what?

Roy: Nothing.

Felicia: Nothing?

Roy: Nothing.

Felicia: Is this about Luke?

Roy: Oh --

Felicia: The last time I saw you, you were all upset about Melissa. Is it -- did something happen to Luke, too?

Roy: Well, it's always about Luke, isn't it? It's about Luke, yeah.

Felicia: I want to come with you.

Roy: No, that's a bad idea.

Felicia: [Southern accent] Oh, you have to let me help you.

Roy: Felicia, he's in a bit of a tight spot. Look, Laura is right beside him.

Laura: You can't marry Jennifer Smith. I won't let you.

Luke: I've fought it long enough, Laura.

Laura: But what about me?

Luke: What about you?

Jennifer: You heard her. Give her an answer.

Luke: You, you. You were a dream.

Laura: But I gave you my whole life.

Luke: It -- it was a dream. It wasn't real. I -- I was using you as an escape.

Jennifer: "Escape"?

Laura: Poor choice of words.

Luke: You see how critical she is?

Laura: No, I'm not!

Jennifer: Yes, you are!

Luke: I -- I cannot get over you, Jennifer. I've tried. I've done everything I can. It's destiny. It's fate. We were meant to be together. It's bigger than all of us.

Laura: Now you tell me.

Luke: I've made some mistakes in my life. I've made some big, damn blunders. But walking away from you -- that was the worst.

Jennifer: Is that really true?

Luke: You know it is. So does she. You know it is, don't you, Laura?

Laura: All these years I thought it was me, that if I had just tried a little bit harder or if I'd just been a better wife --

Jennifer: You're out of your league, babe.

[Jennifer laughs]

Laura: When I think about all the years that I wasted --

Luke: You know, if I had those years to do over again --

Jennifer: Yeah?

Luke: I'd never leave you.

Jennifer: You really mean it?

Luke: I mean it. I must've been out of my mind.

Jennifer: Go ahead.

Luke: I'm sorry it has to be this way, Laura.

Jennifer: Wait. I know you haven't had a chance yet to get me a wedding present.

Luke: Oh, we got our whole lives for shopping.

Jennifer: I've decided what I want.

Luke: Anything.

Jennifer: I want Laura dead. Luke? What's the matter? Don't you like my present?

[Jennifer laughs]

Jennifer: Get her out of here, boys.

Luke: Wait! Just -- just -- just wait.

Jennifer: Boo-boo-boo --

Luke: Just wait.

Jennifer: Ju-ju-ju-ju-ju.

Sonny: All right, check the trains, planes, bus stations.

Max: They're all covered.

Sonny: Courtney didn't just disappear on a flying carpet -- if she disappeared at all.

Max: We have men all over Port Charles.

Sonny: All right. Keep an eye on A.J. Quartermaine, too, will you?

Max: Yes, Sir.

[Knock on door]

Sonny: Yeah? Did you find Courtney?

Mike: I was hoping you had.

Sonny: Nope.

Mike: Well, how hard are you looking?

Sonny: I got people all over the city, Mike.

Mike: Yeah, but why do I get the -- the sense that if you were searching for a rival or a traitor that maybe --

Sonny: I'm doing the best I can, Mike. If you think you can do better, then you're welcome to go search for yourself. Call me when you find her.

Mike: Michael, listen to me. Have you -- have you thought about your life five years from now? Maybe 15 years from now?

Sonny: I am busy right now. I got --

Mike: Yeah, but -- wait a minute. Listen to me. What -- I mean, what's life going to be like after you've pushed everyone away, when all you have left is a couple of bodyguards to order around?

Sonny: I don't need this right now.

Mike: I know you don't need it.

Sonny: Okay.

Mike: Because you -- you don't allow people in your life unless it's on your terms. You don't let people in. Only if they follow the Sonny Corinthos rule book. I don't do that, so I guess I'm out. Unless you want something.

Sonny: I don't want anything from you. I don't know what you're talking about, Mike.

Mike: You know, Janine is right. If Courtney has any sense, why would she come back here? Why? She's a kid. Michael, listen to me, please. Listen to me. She's young, she's confused, she's hurt. But how on earth can she live up to your impossible standards? We all know the consequences of failing you. That means your cold stare, a door slamming in your face. Maybe I should spare her that, too. Maybe you're right, Michael. Maybe you should just leave her alone.

Sonny: Anything else?

Mike: Yeah.

Sonny: Yeah.

Mike: Yeah, I walked on you. I bailed out --

Sonny: Right.

Mike: On my responsibility. But, you know, by shutting people out, you're doing the same kind of thing. You refuse to look at any side but your own. You won't listen, you won't trust, you won't forgive. Don't you see that is a way of bailing out, too?

Sonny: I'm not like you.

Mike: Michael, how long can you live like this? How long do you think that I'm going to keep coming back? And what about Carly? I mean, why should she constantly live with your rejection? Why shouldn't she find somebody else? Why -- why shouldn't Courtney run?

[Phone rings]

Sonny: Yeah. Where? All right, I'll be right there.

Mike: Have they found Courtney?

Sonny: They think she's on the docks.

Mike: All right. I'm coming with you.

Sonny: Come on.

Nikolas: I understand.

Gia: You do?

Nikolas: Yeah. You don't want to drive right now. That's fine. No problem.

Gia: After everything that's happened --

Nikolas: Listen. Listen, what happened will not touch you. I have seen to that.

Gia: Yeah, well, look at what you had to do -- buy people off, get them to lie. You confused Elizabeth.

Nikolas: No. No, no. I took care of the situation because I love you.

Gia: And what about Sonny's sister?

Nikolas: Well, you know, worst case, she'll go to traffic school.

Gia: Marcus says she could end up in jail.

Nikolas: Well, you know what? That's Sonny's problem. Besides, I'm sure he's already figured out a way to fix it somehow.

Gia: What if Elizabeth remembers that I ran that light?

Nikolas: Listen. I have a better idea. What about we find a way to make you feel better?

Gia: Like what?

Nikolas: The big apple? Hmm?

Gia: In my new car?

Nikolas: No, forget the car. I'll get a limo with a Jacuzzi, the whole nine yards.

Gia: Hmm. Sounds interesting.

Nikolas: We'll take a drive down to Manhattan. You know, a nice, slow drive. And do a lot of shopping.

Gia: A lot of shopping, yeah.

Nikolas: A lot of shopping. Check out some clubs, have some dinner, stumble in at dawn.

Gia: And then?

Nikolas: Make love all day.

Gia: Hmm. I like this idea.

Nikolas: Let's start right now.

Gia: Sounds good to me.

Elizabeth: As far as I'm concerned, this was a vacation. Anything to get me out of this room. So stop apologizing, okay?

Sarah: I just can't believe they mixed up the x-ray schedule.

Lucky: [French accent] Ah, bonjour. Bonjour. May I show the lady to her table?

Elizabeth: I can't believe you did this.

Lucky: [Normal voice] Well, I had a little bit of help.

Bobbie: All in the name of love.

Elizabeth: I knew that x-ray was a scam.

Sarah: Now, would I do that?

Elizabeth: You always were a lousy liar.

Sarah: What can I say? I'm guilty.

Elizabeth: This is just like Greenwich Village.

Lucky: Yes, and our apartment would sit right over there across the park.

Elizabeth: You were going to play your guitar here on the weekends.

Lucky: Mm-hmm. And you were going to paint.

Elizabeth: Yeah, well, I'm not sure I'm up to painting at the moment.

Lucky: Well, we can do whatever you want.

Elizabeth: Surprise me.

Doctor: What's wrong with you?

Sarah: Dr. Caldwell.

Bobbie: Is there a problem?

Dr. Caldwell: Where do I start? "Nice work, Dr. Webber"? You've been on the job how long, a week?

Luke: Wait.

Jennifer: Get her out of here.

Luke: I said wait or the wedding's off!

Jennifer: That isn't very nice.

Luke: You order these goons to kill her, and I won't marry you.

Man: What do you mean, "goon"?

Second man: Yeah.

Luke: Hey, I call them as I see them, boys.

Jennifer: Isn't Laura the worst mistake you've ever made?

Luke: Yes.

Jennifer: And don't you love me to the bottom of your pea-picking heart?

Luke: You know I do.

Jennifer: Then prove it.

Luke: Uncuff me, baby, I'll prove it. I'll -- I'll show you. I'll do anything you want. What do you want? What do you want?

Jennifer: Kiss me.

Luke: Now?

Jennifer: Like the song goes, "It's in His Kiss."

Luke: Well, I kiss a lot better with my hands free.

Jennifer: Oh, you wouldn't be stalling, would you?

Luke: I just want to make you happy, Jenna Belle.

Jennifer: Well, maybe you will, and maybe you won't. But if you want to keep my associates here from killing Laura, you'll kiss me and I'll like it.

Laura: Don't you dare.

Luke: No problem.

Man: What's the word, boss?

Jennifer: Ahem. Yeah.

Felicia: Skimming off the top isn't that difficult, especially in country music because they usually use cash. And if I'm going to catch this promoter --

Roy: Well, you should just go on ahead, then, and do that job.

Felicia: Not if Luke is in trouble.

Roy: But I can deal with that. You should just go to San Antonio.

Felicia: Roy, Luke is my friend, too.

Roy: Felicia, this could be a dangerous situation.

Felicia: Dangerous?

Roy: Yeah.

[Felicia chuckles]

Felicia: You don't even know your way around Texas. I know my way around Texas.

Roy: Oh, but, you know, I can manage.

Felicia: You're hours behind.

Roy: That's true. Just for the sake of argument, does any of this mean anything to you?

Felicia: West Fork -- hmm.

Roy: Yeah.

Felicia: It's way out there. The only thing they have out there is cattle ranches and abandoned gold mines.

Roy: So you know that area?

Felicia: I used to go out with this bull rider.

Roy: In West Fork?

Felicia: No, no, but I heard that he moved there.

Roy: Oh.

Felicia: But now he's raising bucking horses -- or maybe that was his cousin. But, anyway, their aunt by marriage is really good friends with my grandmother. You know what? I sent him a Christmas card a couple years ago when he was in the national finals, so maybe he'll help us out if I give him a call.

Roy: You're hired.

Felicia: Well, I was coming with you anyway.

Roy: Yeah, I kind of figured you were. So, you ever hear of this place, the Triple Six Ranch?

Felicia: Triple Six Ranch?

Roy: Yeah.

Felicia: Are you sure it's a real place?

Roy: I hope so. You know, I hope so.

Felicia: Let me give my grandmother a call because then she can call the aunt and then she can maybe hook us up with him. He can pour us a beer and tell us what's going on.

Roy: Yeah, yeah, that's -- sounds like a plan.

Luke: You ready for another smooch, sweet pea? You think you're woman enough?

Jennifer: Sorry, boys.

Man: You mean we don't get to shoot her?

Jennifer: A deal's a deal. Luke here has still got it.

Luke: And I can kick it around, too, baby.

Jennifer: But I have one more request.

Luke: Anything you want.

Jennifer: Tell me you love me.

Luke: I love you.

Jennifer: Tell me better.

Luke: Walking away from you was the single most regrettable thing I've ever done in my whole miserable life. I loved you then. I love you now. I will always love you. And to think we have a chance to do it over, to do it right. Oh, baby, I would pay any price. I would do anything for the privilege, for the gift of spending my every waking hour with you.

Laura: Wait a minute.

Jennifer: Oh, shut up.

Laura: You can't do this to me.

Luke: I already did.

Laura: Not after I came all the way out here after you.

Luke: You see how this is? She stalks me.

Laura: You're supposed to be mine.

Luke: It's over, babe. Deal with it.

Jennifer: You heard the man.

Luke: Hey, put her on the next bus out of town, what do you say? I'm tired of looking at her.

[Luke laughs]

Laura: Oh, yeah? Well, same here. And good luck because you're going to need it.

Jennifer: Not so fast.

Luke: Oh, she's bringing us down, bride. Put her on the bus.

Jennifer: I promised you that my boys here won't shoot you, and they won't.

Luke: Yeah, and you're damn Lucky under the circumstances.

Jennifer: But, you know, lots of things happen here on the Triple Six Ranch -- people get lost, fall off horses, get trapped in arroyos, and sometimes their necks get caught in a noose.

[Jennifer laughs]

Man: Now you're talking.

Luke: Ah -- no, you wouldn't do that. You -- you call yourself Frank Smith's daughter?

Jennifer: What's that supposed to mean?

Luke: Well, where's your genetic sense of vengeance?

Jennifer: My what?

Luke: Look, if you just kill her, it's over. But if you force her to watch us say our nuptial vows -- "I do," "I do" --

Man: It's a stall, boss.

Jennifer: I'll be the judge of that.

Luke: Yeah, see, first we get married, we force her to watch us get married. And then -- then we get rid of her.

[Luke and Jennifer laugh]

Lucky: It's like my dad always says -- "Sometimes you just have to get back to basics."

Elizabeth: He's right.

Lucky: He blew it by taking off.

Elizabeth: He's gone again?

Lucky: It's a long story. I'm not going anywhere.

Sarah: I was trying to help a patient.

Dr. Caldwell: You're showing favoritism and blatant disrespect for hospital policy.

Bobbie: No harm was done.

Dr. Caldwell: And you should be setting a better example.

Bobbie: Doctor, I have been at this hospital for a long time, and I'm very well aware of the rules and how to interpret them in the patient's best interests. You might want to try learning that yourself.

Dr. Caldwell: I don't have time for this.

Bobbie: Find some, Dr. Caldwell. Elizabeth is Sarah's sister.

Dr. Caldwell: You don't have a problem with that?

Bobbie: Elizabeth almost died. Thanks to Sarah, she didn't.

Dr. Caldwell: Fine. I still have plenty of other problems in this case.

Bobbie: Like what?

Dr. Caldwell: Like the driver of your sister's car, Gia Campbell, never had a blood alcohol test. If there's litigation on this, General Hospital’s in serious trouble. So am I. So are you.

Gia: My life is good again.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Gia: Thanks to you and my new red convertible.

Nikolas: Oh, I see.

Gia: You know, maybe I am ready to go for that drive.

Nikolas: Okay. So how about I come with you?

Gia: Okay. I'll get dressed.

Nikolas: Ah, that's a shame.

Gia: Will you stop?

Nikolas: Okay, okay. Okay, go. Go.

Stavros: Hello, son.

Nikolas: I'm -- I'm dreaming.

Stavros: Of course you are.

Nikolas: No, you're -- you're gone.

Stavros: I'm in your mind. Otherwise, I wouldn't be here. And I'm in your heart.

Nikolas: What do you want?

Stavros: I'm proud of you.

Nikolas: Why?

Stavros: You know how to get things done.

Nikolas: No, I love Gia and I have to protect her.

Stavros: I loved Laura.

Nikolas: That's not the same.

Stavros: I had to protect her, too.

Nikolas: Well, I'm -- I'm not you.

Stavros: But you're my son, the prince, and you have power.

Nikolas: I would never hurt anyone.

Stavros: Power's more fun than you thought, isn't it? Power is seductive. It sets you free, clears the path.

Nikolas: No, I am trying to help Gia.

Stavros: You're taking down boundaries, that's all. Destroying anything that gets in your way.

Nikolas: That is not what I'm doing.

Stavros: It will become second nature.

Nikolas: No.

Stavros: Our nature as father and son.

Nikolas: No.

Stavros: Your nature as a Cassadine.

Nikolas: No. No!

A.J.: Here you go.

Mike: Hey, take it easy, Sonny.

Sonny: Be quiet. Just --

A.J.: Is this great or what?

Sonny: You better have an explanation, A.J.

Sonny: I guess you didn't hear me. Start explaining.

Woman: I don't mean to be rude, but we're kind of in the middle of something.

A.J.: Annie Calloway, Sonny Corinthos.

Annie: I've seen your picture in the papers.

Mike: What's going on here?

A.J.: Annie's a private detective.

Annie: Teen disappearances, mostly.

A.J.: I hired her to look for Courtney.

Sonny: Leave it alone.

A.J.: Or what?

Sonny: Mike --

Mike: I'll be right there.

A.J.: Mike, what can we do to help?

Mike: If you find her --

A.J.: When.

Mike: Tell Courtney her father loves her.

Annie: I will.

Mike: I appreciate what you're trying to do.

A.J.: No problem.

A.J.: Annie? I know you didn't sign up for Sonny Corinthos.

Annie: My job is to find Courtney.

A.J.: If you want to reconsider, it's --

Annie: With any luck at all, she'll get homesick and contact someone.

A.J.: That would be great.

Annie: Thanks for the corn dog. And when I get a lead, I'll be in touch.

A.J.: Okay. You'll get a lead, all right, as soon as I can arrange one.

Gia: Well, you're right, as usual.

Nikolas: Yeah? About what?

Gia: That the worst is over. I need to stop dwelling on the past and focus on the future -- now that I have one, thanks to you.

Nikolas: Yeah, well, I'm just trying to take care of you, that's all. That's all. Hmm.

Gia: You know, I'll -- I'll trust your instincts next time.

Nikolas:  (garbled)

Gia: You're a natural at this prince thing. You know that? That was a compliment.

Nikolas: Come here. I love you so much. I do.

Gia: I'm starting to like my life again. And all it took was some help from you and -- well, a new red convertible.

Nikolas: Right, a brand-new red convertible.

Gia: Yeah. Maybe I am ready for that drive.

Nikolas: Okay. So, I'll go with you.

Gia: I'll get dressed.

Nikolas: See, now, that's a shame.

Gia: Will you stop?

Nikolas: Okay. Okay. Go.

Gia: Okay.

Bobbie: Gia Campbell's blood alcohol test is probably lost in the computer, so I'll see what I can do.

Dr. Caldwell: Thank you, Nurse Spencer.

Sarah: What is it with that guy?

Bobbie: Don't let him get to you.

Sarah: Thanks for standing up for me.

Bobbie: No problem. I am going to find out what happened with Gia's test.

Sarah: Thanks. But you won't find it.

Elizabeth: Will you hurry up, please?

Lucky: Just give me one more second, please.

Lucky: [French accent] Is my masterpiece, no?

Elizabeth: What happened to my pose?

Lucky: [Normal voice] What does it matter? We're both happy.

Elizabeth: All right, maybe we should stick to the original plan -- I paint, you sing.

Lucky: Oh. You don't like my painting.

Elizabeth: Well, it's like your dad said -- "stick to the basics," right?

Lucky: Yeah, well, probably now he's probably off somewhere with my mom.

Elizabeth: You think so?

Lucky: Maybe he's getting married to the woman that he loves.

Luke: What do you say, pumpkin? Isn't that a more satisfying way to settle this score?

Jennifer: Do you want to watch me and Luke get married?

Laura: I'd rather stick needles in my eyes.

Jennifer: Sounds like a yes to me.

Luke: Same here.

Jennifer: Fine.

Laura: I'll make you pay for this, Luke.

Luke: The sooner we get to the church, the sooner we get hitched, the sooner I'm going to be a happy man.

Jennifer: No, we're not getting married in a church.

Luke: Well, then, we better get a move on. It's a long drive to the county seat.

Jennifer: Do you really think I'm letting you out of here after you ran out on me last time?

Luke: Oh, but, come on. If I had to do that again --

Jennifer: Oh, the minister will be here before you know it.

Laura: You're going to regret this.

Jennifer: Has she always been like this?

Luke: Since day one.

Jennifer: Well, you'll be rid of her soon enough.

Luke: Thank you!

Jennifer: Abe, why don't you go get my sweetheart's wedding duds?

Abe: Whatever you say, boss.

Jennifer: And, boys, why don't we go see how my wedding dress is coming along?

Laura: Now what?

Luke: I don't know. I'll think of something.

Laura: Maybe I already have.

Sonny: I'm telling you, it was a setup. It was no accident A.J. was on the pier with a girl who was a dead ringer for Courtney, just like it was no accident that Courtney vanished without a trace. Now, I'm telling you, if Courtney had left town, I'd have found her. Now, if she's in town somewhere that I cannot reach, that takes money. Courtney doesn't have money. A.J. does.

Mike: What difference does it make who looks for Courtney?

Sonny: Do you want Courtney to owe A.J. Quartermaine?

Courtney: So, why trick Sonny? I mean, why make him mad?

A.J.: Just creating a little diversion, that's all.

Courtney: As long as nobody finds me.

A.J.: Nobody will.

Courtney: You know, I really don't want to be dragged back like some lost cat or something, especially by Sonny.

A.J.: You know, there might be one other way to convince Sonny you aren't in town.

Courtney: What's that?

A.J.: Do you trust me?

Stavros' voice: Power is seductive. It sets you free, clears the path. You're taking down the boundaries, that's all. Destroying anything that gets in your way. It will become second nature. Our nature as father and son. Your nature as a Cassadine.

[Nikolas knocks box off desk]

Sarah: Nikolas? Nikolas, are you in here?

Nikolas: Hey. Hey. Elizabeth -- she's -- she's all right?

Sarah: What the hell is going on with you?

Jennifer: Where is that preacher?

Abe: He had a flat tire.

Jennifer: Well, why aren't you out there fixing it?

Luke: Darling, relax. He's a man of God. Why, he can probably heal that tire.

Jennifer: The sooner we get hitched, the sooner we get rid of Laura!

Laura: You'll never take Luke away from me.

[Jennifer laughs]

Jennifer: You just watch!

Man: Rev. Estrada's here.

Abe: Reverend.

Jennifer: Now we're ready to rock.

Luke: Yes -- yes, indeed.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Jennifer: Who is this?

Sarah: If you're lying about the drinking, then what else are you lying about?

Jax: Have you been kissing your ex-husband's most loyal little foot soldier?

Sonny: I don't have time right now.

Zander: This can't wait.
