>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Roy: Maybe they've already run into some real serious glitch. But otherwise, they would have come back by now.
A.J.: Was there something in particular you were looking for?
Jax: I found her.
A.J.: Don't worry about Jax. I'll handled it. He won't say a word.
Kristina: You ditch Carly and now you're Mr. Loyal?
Zander: You really don't get this loyalty thing.
Sonny: If you cared about her so much, let me protect her.
Janine: She trusted me.
Luke: Good morning.
Laura: Is it morning?
Luke: Well, I think so. It's a little hard to tell.
Luke: Do you remember what happened?
Laura: Yeah, we -- we got caved in, right?
Luke: Mm-hmm. But I mean before that. We promised each other that we would get married again, and we would take vows and promise to be together. And we were just about, as I recall, to make love.
Laura: Ahem. That's a nice try, Luke. Remember I wanted to wait until the wedding night? The fact is we are still trapped in here, you know? And nobody has come to try to get us out of here, nobody at all. You know, we are encased in solid granite, and all you can think about is sex!
Luke: Well, yeah.
Felicia: Sheriff Lovejoy?
Sheriff Lovejoy: Well, something I can do for you?
Felicia: Good morning. Be quiet. I just wanted to talk to you. Would you be willing to negotiate terms with me separately from him?
Sheriff Lovejoy: You've given up on the boyfriend? Now, this wouldn't be some kind of trick, would it? Like the -- what you tried to pull with the cell phone?
Felicia: No. He lied to me. And I want out of here.
Sheriff Lovejoy: Well, I'm afraid that's not possible.
Felicia: I don't -- I don't even know this Jennifer Smith. It's his fault. He just tricked me into getting involved with him, and it turned out to be just a big joke. Oh -- I guess I just don't have any luck with men lately. I just have this big weakness.
Sheriff Lovejoy: Do tell.
Felicia: I am so trusting of men. A big man can just put his arms around me and hold me tight and look into my eyes and make me all kinds of promises, and I feel so -- oh, so vulnerable.
Sheriff Lovejoy: Well --
Felicia: Anything he wants. I'd give him anything.
Sheriff Lovejoy: Maybe y'all haven't just met the right kind of man.
Felicia: Think that's what it is?
Sheriff Lovejoy: Well, we might ought to find out.
Roy: Damn! Good work.
Felicia: Get the key.
Felicia: The keys.
Felicia: Can you get them?
Roy: Almost. Can you reach them?
Felicia: Somebody's coming, Roy. Somebody's coming. Hurry!
Roy: Well --
Max: Still no word on your sister.
Sonny: Keep looking.
[Knock on door]
Max: Isn't a good time.
Zander: It's important.
Sonny: Keep me posted, Max. I was going to call you because --
Zander: Well, now I'm here and I'll save you the time. I quit.
Skye: Morning to you, too.
A.J.: Skip the sarcasm. I need your help.
Skye: With what?
A.J.: Your boy Jax.
Skye: Oh, this would be, like, the hundredth time you've told me how stupid it is to go after him, how reckless it is to fall for him. I don't want to hear this anymore, A.J.
A.J.: Skye, this isn't about you. I have a potentially serious problem, and you are my solution.
Skye: What's in it for me?
A.J.: Jax knows I have Courtney. Now, I've handled Courtney and Jax, okay?
Skye: Define "handled."
A.J.: I've got the situation under control for the moment.
Skye: Wait a minute, Jax knows you have Courtney, and you say you've got it under control? What, have you lost your mind, A.J.?
A.J.: Look, I don't intend to lose anything as long as you make sure that Jax keeps his mouth shut.
Carly: What happened to you? Did an international corporation slip through your fingers?
Jax: No, something a little closer to home, actually.
Carly: Yeah, well, try and take care of it before the opening, okay, because I need you at your most fabulous best so you can charm all the female customers.
Jax: See, I'm not here about the opening. This is personal.
Carly: What's going on, Jax?
Jax: I need you to tell me everything you know about A.J., what he's capable of.
Skye: Let me get this straight -- Jax knows that Courtney's staying in your apartment, and you haven't moved her out of there? A.J., come on, that is not reckless, that is suicidal.
A.J.: Moving Courtney out isn't an option, okay? I've made too much progress. I'm not going to blow it now.
Skye: Sonny cannot find out that you've been hiding his little sister. Come on, give her cash, put her on a floor of the hotel, stick her on another planet -- just get her out of there.
A.J.: If I do that, it's like admitting I'm afraid of Sonny.
Skye: Well, you should be, A.J. Come on, this isn't "Pretty Woman." You are not Richard Gere, Courtney is not Julia Roberts, and, in case you haven't noticed, Sonny Corinthos is not Juan Valdez. Coffee isn't really his business. Yeah, you may have noticed that people who cross him usually end up as fish food.
A.J.: Yeah, well, Sonny isn't my problem.
Skye: Well, he's going to be if he finds out that you've been conning his little sister --
A.J.: He's not going to find out. You know why? Because Jax won't tell him because you are going to help me.
Skye: Um, I don't think Jax is exactly your number one supporter. In case you haven't noticed, he has a serious white knight complex.
A.J.: Yeah, well, I have a news flash for you -- you see, his hatred for Sonny is even stronger, fortunately for us. This is going to work, trust me, with your help.
Carly: Why are you asking me about A.J.?
Jax: Could you just trust me on this?
Carly: Is this about your so-called business associate Skye? Because I'll tell you, they're two of a kind.
Jax: No, this has nothing to do with Skye, okay? You were married to A.J., you had his child.
Carly: Yeah, in the reverse order. It's part of the problem.
Jax: So your difficulties with A.J. were entirely about Michael?
Carly: Look, I went to Jake's looking for Jason. I ran into A.J., we got drunk, we ended up in bed together, and he promptly forgot -- which was nice -- but then when he remembered and he realized that Michael might be his son, he did everything in his power to try and take Michael away from me.
Jax: Well, that's ancient history.
Carly: Yeah, you know what -- so is brain-damaging Jason, so is shoving me and my unborn child down a flight of stairs. Okay, so are a hundred-thousand other terrible things that A.J. has done which he has whined his way out of because he's an alcoholic, because his family has enough money to cover for him. Come on, I mean, he is lethal, he is a train wreck, and he is drowning in self-pity, okay? I don't know, lately he has just --
Jax: Lately what?
Carly: I don't know, something has changed in him.
Jax: What's changed, Carly? Could you be more specific?
Carly: He is just more cold-blooded. I can see it in him. It's in his eyes. And he is especially that way around Sonny's sister.
Jax: Well, tell me about that.
A.J.'s voice: "Courtney, sorry I couldn't be here to share this with you. I had an early business meeting. Enjoy your breakfast. If you need anything, call me on my cell phone."
[Knock on door]
Janine: Hello? I -- it's -- it's Janine. Open up.
Janine: Okay. Thank you.
Courtney: What are you doing here?
Janine: I had to see you.
Courtney: Well, what if Sonny's men saw you? He'll know that I'm staying here.
Janine: No one saw me.
Courtney: Fine. Well, let's just get something straight -- if you came here to tell me I don't know what I'm doing, you can just leave now.
Janine: I came here to apologize for what I said yesterday.
Courtney: You are always sorry after, Mom. After you told me Daddy died, after you almost get arrested for blackmail, and after you jumped to the wrong conclusion and totally humiliated me in front of the nicest, most caring man that I have ever met.
Janine: Maybe it's just a little hard for me to accept that you're not my little girl anymore.
Courtney: Well, I'm not, okay, so get used to it.
Janine: Okay, I am, I'm trying. It's not that easy for a mom, all right? By the way, what are you wearing? No, okay, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I just -- you're a grownup, okay, and you make your own decisions. I won't stand in the way, I promise. Now, honey, what's the matter?
Courtney: Nothing. I just -- I don't know if coming here was the right thing to do. I'm not sure that I can trust any of this.
Sonny: You're quitting? Want to tell me why?
Zander: What's there to say? I tried to tell you how to run your personal life, you warned me that I was crossing the line, and I wouldn't back off.
Sonny: You asked me twice to take you off watching Carly. Maybe I wasn't listening; maybe I'm partly responsible for it.
Zander: No, no, you're not responsible for what I do. I am.
Sonny: I asked you to care for Carly, you did. You tried to defend her, which is fine. But you don't have to defend her against me. Carly and I, we fight, okay? That's how we deal with each other. But just do me a favor -- don't get caught up in the middle.
Zander: That's what I'm trying to avoid.
Sonny: Well, that doesn't mean that you have to quit. I mean, Carly doesn't have any friends. I'd hate to see her lose you.
Zander: You deserve respect, Sonny. You deserve loyalty from the people that work for you.
Sonny: Well, that's why I'm going to give you another chance to prove your loyalty.
Luke: Now that you've agreed to remarry me, it's pushed all of the thoughts right out of my head.
Laura: Luke, we're trapped.
Luke: We've been trapped before -- quite a few times, as I recall. What's different is we're going to get remarried, we're really together. Look at you. You're so beautiful, even here --
Laura: I look horrible and I'm freezing cold!
Luke: Come here.
Laura: Luke, I'm scared. I mean it, I'm really, really worried. We have got to try to get out of this somehow. For heaven's sakes. Do you think maybe Roy and Felicia were not able to get away from Jennifer's men?
Luke: No, no, Jennifer's men are a bunch of idiots. I'm sure that they'll find us or we'll find them or -- I need to ask you something.
Laura: If it's not about getting out of here, I don't want to talk about it!
Luke: It's more important than that because your answer determines the rest of our lives.
Luke: Why do you want to be married to me again?
Laura: Didn't I answer that already?
Luke: Yeah, but your answer sort of didn't count.
Luke: Because we were in Beecher's Corners when you said yes, and you thought I was on the other side of the Wall of Jericho, right?
Luke: Well, we were safe in that motel room. There were no risks.
Laura: Oh, please. Saying yes to you is one of the riskiest things I've ever done in my life.
Luke: Well, now, see, that's sort of my point. You said yes when we were in Beecher's Corners, sleepy old Beecher's Corners, and then all of a sudden, we're here in this mess with some raving lunatic out of my past riding in like a banshee. And I'm afraid that that's sort of how it's always going to be. I get a little bit bored and restless, and I find trouble.
Laura: Or it finds you.
Luke: Yeah. Well, I'm -- I'm owning up to my pattern here. See, what I'm trying to say is this won't be the last time that we're stuck somewhere and Roy and Felicia or whoever is available at the moment have to come and bail us out. Can you honestly live with that?
Laura: I can live with your restlessness. I know who you are. But if you're going to use that as an excuse to try to keep Felicia hanging around, no, I don't want to be married to you again.
Felicia: It sounds like they're getting closer. We've got to hurry.
Roy: Damn, I must've punched him an inch too hard.
Felicia: Hurry, can you think of something?
Roy: Just a second. Yeah, I got it, I got it.
Felicia: If we could just get the gun.
Roy: Here we go, here we go.
Felicia: All right, wait a minute. I can just barely -- what are you doing?
Felicia: Here we go.
Roy: Okay. Just a little closer.
Felicia: Closer. I got it.
Roy: You got it?
Felicia: I got it. I got it!
Roy: Get it, get it. No, get it, get it. Okay. Up there. There you go.
Jennifer: I couldn't believe the look on his face.
Deputy Dave: Man's as slippery as a hog on ice.
Janine: Did A.J. do something to make you uncomfortable?
Courtney: Has Sonny said anything? Has he even asked about me?
Janine: You know, he hasn't. I'm sorry, sweetheart. The more I get to know your brother, the more I am convinced that you should stay out of his life.
Courtney: I was so angry when I came here. Mostly at Sonny, but -- for not believing me about the accident, but at you and Daddy. I just -- I wasn't thinking straight. I stayed here to try and sort things out with you guys, but I'm afraid I've only made things worse for A.J.
Janine: A.J. can take care of himself.
Courtney: What if he can't? What if Sonny hurts him? Or what if -- oh, God! I'm just -- I'm so confused. I don't --
Janine: Thank goodness you had somebody like A.J. to turn to.
Courtney: Yesterday you couldn't even stand him.
Janine: Yesterday I overreacted. Look, honey, A.J. -- he's obviously so good to you. You feel so comfortable with him.
Courtney: You don't understand. A.J. told me that he's falling in love with me. What am I supposed to do with that, Mom?
Skye: Jax seemed pretty damn sympathetic to Courtney that night that he bawled me out after I hurt her feelings. I seriously doubt that he's going to stand by and let you use her --
A.J.: I told Courtney I love her. Last night. We're past the point of return, Skye. It's now for keeps. After professing my undying love, I can't just toss her out on the street.
Skye: Well, she has a mother who seems pretty hell-bent on taking care of her. I doubt she's going to end up on the streets.
A.J.: You don't get it. I am this close to making Courtney believe that I am her prince. Can you imagine the look on Sonny's face when he realizes I stole his little sister and there's nothing he can do about it?
Skye: I think there's plenty that he can do about it. None of it healthy or very comfortable for you.
A.J.: He can't touch me if Courtney is in love with me. Everything's working out. Look, we vowed to make him pay for stealing my son, right? We're almost there. We just have one obstacle -- Jax. That's where you come in. You have to make sure that your golden boy doesn't shoot off his mouth while I make sure Sonny loses his sister. Deal?
Skye: I hope to God I don't regret this.
Carly: So A.J. was sitting at this table and he was with this young girl. And he was doing that whole nice guy thing he does. And she was buying every single word.
Jax: Are you certain that A.J. was sure that she was Sonny's sister?
Carly: I didn't realize it at first, but, yes. Look, he was all over Courtney. He was doing that self-deprecating, "I'm just a rich boy in search of a friend" thing, and, look, he was using Courtney. He was trying to win her over to get back at Sonny.
Jax: Okay. Who's to say that Sonny's better for her than A.J.?
Carly: Okay, Sonny is not going to get drunk and drive her head into a tree or push her down a flight of stairs.
Jax: Yeah, well, Sonny is dangerous in other ways.
Carly: Okay, you know what? If this is about Brenda again, I can't help you. She took her chances, and she got hurt. Sonny had his reasons. But I do know for a fact that he did everything he could to protect her.
Jax: Yeah, except from himself.
Carly: Okay, look -- Jax, Sonny is no saint. All right? But there are things that are very important to him.
Jax: Like what?
Carly: Honor, loyalty, and family. Especially family. Look, Mike can drive him insane and they have their issues, but he has never completely closed the door on him or on me or Michael. We're still his family, so he takes care of us in the way that he knows how no matter what has happened. And he feels the same way about Courtney, okay? But the girl is a mess right now because of her parents and knowing who they are. And you know what? I know a little bit about that because I made some stupid mistakes for the same reason.
Jax: Okay, well, let's get back to A.J.
Carly: He reads her like a book, okay? He was kind, he was sympathetic, and he followed up with a repeat performance in the park as soon as he could. "Oh, oh, Courtney, what a surprise to see you here. I was just minding my own lonely, misunderstood business. Oh, and by the way, your brother -- he's a powerful force of evil in the world."
Jax: Yeah, I get the idea.
Carly: Yeah? Well, Courtney didn't because as soon as Sonny and I wanted to get her away from A.J., she decided that we were in the wrong. But he did get her away. And I hung around, and, sure enough, A.J. came back. And as soon as he saw that Courtney wasn't there and he didn't need to impress her anymore, he reverted right back to his nasty self. He practically admitted that he was using Courtney to get to Sonny.
Jax: Do you think that A.J. could actually make Courtney fall for him?
Carly: Jax, why are you asking me all this? What do you know?
Janine: Sweetheart, that's wonderful.
Courtney: I'm not sure what to think. I mean, I keep thinking that none of this makes sense. But how can I trust someone that I only met a few weeks ago?
Janine: I know, but you say A.J.'s so good to you.
Courtney: He is. I just -- I don't know. He's been so understanding and incredibly generous, but sometimes it feels like a dream. But other times it's too much like a dream, like it isn't really real.
Janine: He hasn't put any pressure on you?
Courtney: No, no, no, no. I asked him straight out if that's what this was about, and he got all upset, like it hurt him to think that I'd think he had an agenda.
Courtney: I have never met anyone like A.J.
Janine: That is exactly -- that's exactly it. Honey, it's because this is all so new to you. But that doesn't mean that it's not real. Uh-uh. And from what you've told me about A.J., he just -- he just seems like the kind of man that I have always hoped you'd meet, somebody that you deserve. And my only advice, if I may, is that you hold out for marriage.
Courtney: Marriage? Wait a second. Who said anything about marriage?
Janine: A good man is going to want to marry you, Courtney. And if A.J. really loves you, if he's who you think he is, then he will want to. Come on, it's just as easy to fall in love with a rich man as a poor man.
Courtney: Where have I heard that one before?
Janine: Well -- oh, sweetie, I only say it because it's true. Look at my life. Learn from my mistakes, please. Help me justify them. Now, A.J.'s nothing like your dad. He's not doing any of this to get something out of it for him. He really, really seems to be doing all of this for you, right?
Courtney: That's what he says. What could A.J. possibly want with me?
Janine: Oh --
Courtney: I just don't know if I can trust what's happening or if I even should.
Janine: Oh, honey, you know why? Because that's all that life has ever given you. That's all that life's ever shown you -- that people let you down and that things go wrong, and maybe A.J.'s different, and this really is a dream come true. And all you have to do, sweetheart, is just reach out and take it. Baby.
Carly: Okay, what aren't you telling me, Jax? Has A.J. done something to Courtney?
Jax: No, no. I'm just trying to find out about the man, so I figured who better to go to than someone who was actually married to him.
Carly: Okay, you're avoiding the question.
Jax: You're right, I am. Look, I just need to know what A.J.'s capable of.
Carly: Well, he is more dangerous than I have ever seen him. I've seen him drunk, I have seen him mean, but I have never seen him more calculating than he is with Courtney. Look, he's planning on using her somehow, and given the chance, he will hurt her. I know that as well as I know anything.
Jax: Okay. Thanks for the information. I'll speak to you later, okay?
Carly: Deliveries are in the rear, although I don't recall ordering anything from you.
Skye: Very funny. I'm looking for Jax.
Carly: Yeah? Well, you just missed him.
Skye: Where did he go?
Carly: Look, if you're on a reconnaissance mission for your slimeball brother, it's too late.
Sonny: I got enough to handle with Courtney, and I can't waste my time with Jax and his latest crusade to run me out of town. I want you to follow up on giving him false information.
Zander: Well, it's not like Jax trusts me enough to convince him that I turned on you.
Sonny: Okay, you can't seem too eager or anxious. He has to believe that you're all torn up about it.
Zander: Right. I think I can do that.
Sonny: There has to be a reason -- something that would make you turn on me.
Zander: I can probably come up with something.
Sonny: How about Carly?
Felicia: Help us! Hurry!
Roy: Hey, out there!
Felicia: Oh, thank God. He just keeled over. I think he had a heart attack or something.
Jennifer: It's a trick. I don't trust her.
Roy: You can't afford to take that chance.
Roy: If I were you, Deputy Dave, I'd call an ambulance. Come on, Dave!
Deputy Dave: Hank? Hank? God.
Roy: Step over his body. There you go. All right, nice and easy. I want the three of you to put your hands behind your head and step into that cell.
Hank: Oh! You moron.
Jennifer: You're both idiots. I spent better -- after the amount of money I spent --
Roy: Get in the cell and stop talking. Desperate for a husband? You can take your pick.
Jennifer: I swear, I'll make you pay for this.
Roy: Well, you get in line. Want to grab that map there, Felicia? And the two of you, well, actually, the three of you give law enforcement a bad name. All right, you know this area pretty well. If you were Luke and Laura, and people were shooting at you, where would you go?
Luke: Look, I didn't know Roy was going to bring Felicia along. How would I know that?
Laura: Okay, wait.
Luke: We've been through all this.
Laura: All right, I believe you, you didn't know. But remember when Felicia insisted on coming along to help us find Lucky? You know, she wasn't just there to help us find Lucky. She had a hidden agenda.
Luke: Well, you know, that has nothing to do with me. And if she's got a hidden agenda now, I can't help her with it. Look, I just want to forget all that.
Laura: Yeah, I know you do. I know you do, but that is a part of our history that I never want to repeat. And I know you would like to just pretend that it never, ever happened, but it did happen! Why are we doing this now? I don't -- I don't know why we're even discussing this right now.
Luke: Well, we're discussing it because I've asked you to put the truth on the table.
Laura: Yeah, but last night we slept on rocks, okay? I'm dying of thirst; we're trapped in a cave. This is not the time. Let's -- let's not.
Luke: This is the perfect time because we are trapped. We can ask the hard questions. We can tell the uncomfortable truths. And I can't walk out.
Luke: Okay, I'll start. How do you think I felt watching you dance with Stefan Cassadine at Nikolas and Gia's engagement party?
Luke: Yeah, Stefan's a big problem for me. He saved you once, right?
Laura: Yeah, but that was such a long time ago.
Luke: What about now? Is he any kind of a threat?
Laura: No. No, not at all. Luke, don't you understand Stefan is someone I turn to out of complete desperation? I never would have chosen him, not under normal circumstances. God, I never felt anything for him like I do with you. Never.
Luke: That is very much the same situation as with me and Felicia. When we were separated, and I was miserable and lonely, missing you terribly, there she was. At the time, I know now, she reminded me of you.
Luke: Otherwise, it never would have happened.
Luke: What's that?
Laura: Water. Yes. Oh, that's good. If there's water here, we can last longer down here, right?
Luke: Yes. Yes, that's -- that's good.
Janine: Hi. I just wanted to stop by and clear a few things up with Courtney about yesterday and, so --
Courtney: We're all through here, right?
A.J.: It doesn't matter, really, because what I have to say to you, Courtney, involves you, as well.
A.J.: Things have been a little tense around here.
A.J.: I mean, this was supposed to be a place for you to clear your head, right? You know, to be alone and think? I just -- I wanted you to feel safe and comfortable. Instead, you're constantly worrying about who's going to show up at the door next. That's not what I had in mind, so -- I just want you to be happy. That's all I ever wanted. I have a question to ask you.
Zander: Look, I know -- I know Carly's working with Jax, and -- but I think it's best if we just, you know, we just leave her out of this.
Sonny: Well, it's always more effective to use the truth. Jax knows I have you watching Carly. He sees you with her all the time. You have to make him think you resent it. Tell him I treat you like a kid and that you hate babysitting Carly. Give him some attitude like you gave me yesterday. Just tell him whatever he wants to hear. Once he thinks you're working for him, I will give you some information to pass along -- some information that will send him in the exact wrong direction. You know what I'm saying?
Zander: Yeah, whatever you think.
Sonny: Oh, I know this can work because I trust you can do it. Now, as far as quitting -- don't.
Zander: I'll let you know what happens with Jax.
Sonny: All right. I am busy, Jax. You've been doing everything you can to keep me that way -- bribing the city council, paying off judges to issue orders to condemn my property. You know, if somebody didn't know how good you are, how loyal and fair and all that kind of stuff, they'd think you're coming after me, and you're breaking the law.
Jax: You know, Sonny, I'm the last person you want to upset right now.
Sonny: Are you being careful with Carly? Making sure you don't lie to her and set her up to be hurt? You know, if it's too much trouble, why don't you just bail on the business association? I'd be more than happy to buy your interest in her club.
Jax: That's not why I'm here.
Sonny: Then why are you here? Another threat? Another condemnation order? Go ahead, do anything you want to me, because you cannot hurt me.
Roy: This looks like swampland, right? Those are just a bunch of creeks there. And the river, that's about, what, half a mile across right there? There's no way they'd go in that direction. There's no access.
Felicia: And that ravine is too steep.
Roy: So maybe these woods up here?
Felicia: Well, that'd be a good cover.
Roy: Oh, damn. I mean, who are we kidding? There's no way to know. They could be anywhere.
Roy: And whatever tracks they left are going to be worthless in about five minutes.
Laura: Seems like a lot of water.
Luke: Seems like more than a lot. Hey, listen -- sounds to me like we're in the middle of a gully washer. That's a flash flood. Oh, man, look. Look at the watermark in this shaft. It looks like the water gets clear up to there, 15 feet above our heads.
Skye: I don't know what you're babbling about. I'm here for Jax. It has nothing to do with A.J.
Carly: Oh, forgive me for not believing you. You've been so trustworthy in the past.
Skye: You know, I really don't have time for this.
Carly: Okay. Why do you need to find Jax so urgently? And why was he asking me all these kinds of questions about A.J.? Oh, yes, that's right. He was questioning me about A.J., wondering what he had planned for Courtney, so I was kind enough to fill him in on the games that A.J. plays.
Skye: Like Jax would ever listen to your unbiased opinions.
Carly: Oh, well, he seemed awfully concerned that A.J. may be lying to Courtney. He asked me specifically if he thought that A.J. might try and make Courtney fall for him.
Skye: No. Carly, get out of my way.
Carly: Uh-uh, there is no way I'm going to let you keep A.J. from getting what's coming to him.
Skye: Get out of way! Get your hands off of me!
Zander: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Back off! Back off! Back off. Whoa! Come on now.
A.J.: How do you feel about Manhattan? It's not a trick question. I managed to score third-row seats for "The Producers." After which, I thought we'd get a table at Das Boot.
Courtney: That is, like, the hottest club in New York City! Oh, my -- "Rolling Stone" just did an article on it.
A.J.: Yeah, we could fly there tonight. You, too.
Courtney: I can't believe it! This is so cool.
A.J.: I assume that's a yes?
Janine: Well, you guys go. Not -- not me. Who needs Mom hanging --
A.J.: No, no, no, no, you are coming. I insist. Okay? That is, if Courtney's up for it.
Courtney: Up for it? Try and stop me.
[Courtney and Janine laugh]
A.J.: All right.
Jax: This is about your sister.
Sonny: What about Courtney?
Jax: You know, you don't really deserve my help, but she might. So I figured I'd repay a debt -- you know, a sister for a brother -- since you saved mine, but --
Sonny: Hey, get to the point. If you know where Courtney is, I want to know, right now.
Jax: A.J. has Courtney.

A.J.: I have an idea about how we can get you out of town without Sonny even knowing.
Jax: I saw her in his apartment with my own eyes. There's no telling what he's filling her head with.
Luke: The creeks around are full. This place is going to fill up fast. We've got to get out of here.
