Lucky: And that goes double for me.
Luke: Well. Good morning, you-all.
Nikolas: How are you, Luke?
Luke: Pretty good. You here for a get-well-soon chat with the dragon queen?
Lucky: Didn't waste much time getting arrested, did you?
Luke: Well, you see, I was just here innocently having a little chat with Helena, wishing her well, and just because I happened to be dressed like a doctor, Ofc. Kish here thought something illegal was going on. Go figure.
Lucky: Does Comm. Scorpio know what's going on?
Ofc. Kish: He's out on a crime scene. He told me to detain Mr. Spencer till he had time to deal with him.
Luke: Yeah, and I'm sure this is a violation of my civil rights.
Nikolas: So did you try and hurt Helena, Luke?
Luke: Why would I do that? Whose side are you on?
Edward: So? How do I look, huh?
Edward: You know what I like about you?
Edward: Neither do I. Where's the breakfast that I ordered for Lila? Why isn't it here?
Reginald: It's coming. Of course, there have been a few minor changes.
Reginald: Well, you see, Mrs. Quartermaine likes blackberry jam, not raspberry jam. Just a little helpful pointer here -- if you're going to suck up, you may want to get that stuff right.
Edward: I've been married to that woman for over half my life. I know what kind of jam she likes for breakfast.
Skye: Reginald, would you tell Grandmother that I'm here to see her?
Edward: He will do nothing of the sort. You're only here to play on Lila’s sympathies so that she will leave you in charge of E.L.Q.
Reginald: Excuse me.
Edward: Where are you going?
Reginald: To let your wife decide.
Edward: You know as well as I do that Skye has done nothing but lie to Lila ever since she arrived.
Skye: What's the matter, Grandfather, afraid of a little competition?
Edward: No, dear. I just want to spare your grandmother the heartache of dealing with you, that's all.
Skye: As a matter of fact, you might be very surprised to hear what I have to say to Grandmother.
Carly: "Brawl mars Corinthos' club debut." Perfect.
Zander: What are you doing?
Carly: Hey. I'm rearranging these, trying to improve the pattern of traffic in case I ever get another customer. Did you see this?
Zander: Yeah, figured you'd be celebrating. I mean, come on, you can't buy publicity this good.
Carly: Oh, I see, that's why you're here -- to try and convince me this isn't a total disaster?
Zander: No, actually, I -- I came to pay you for anything I might've broke last night. I mean, I know there was a couple chairs --
Carly: Okay, no, no, no, stop, okay?
Zander: Oh, come on.
Carly: No, put that away, all right? You don't owe me anything. I should pay you because not only did you flatten A.J., you pretty much kept Sonny out of getting assault charges.
Zander: Ah, Sonny would've been able to handle himself.
Carly: After A.J. kissed Courtney in front of him? No, not a chance. If you hadn't jumped A.J. when you did, Sonny would be in a cell right now. He owes you, and so do I.
Zander: Yeah, well, I'm just glad I was there to run interference.
Carly: And what happens the next time? Someone's got to stop A.J., and you know what -- I'm up for the job.
Courtney: How do you feel?
A.J.: I'm not sure. Am I awake?
Courtney: Well, you seem to be. Why?
A.J.: You're here.
Courtney: I didn't want to leave you. And besides, I didn't want to deal with my mom or Sonny or anybody after what happened last night.
A.J.: I'm sorry.
Courtney: You don't have anything to apologize for.
A.J.: No, I knew, I knew going would -- I knew it was a risk. I don't know.
Courtney: You're the one who paid for it.
A.J.: It was so worth it. You definitely proved that Sonny can't control you. You were amazing. I'm just glad that I was -- I was there to help you stand up to him. But, Courtney, that can never happen again. I don't want you ever subjected to that kind of harassment or embarrassment ever again.
Courtney: What are you going to do?
Mike: Hey, thought you were going to eat something.
Sonny: You ordered breakfast, Mike. You eat it.
Mike: How -- how do you think you're going to be able to help your sister if you're starving yourself?
Sonny: Mike, when I said you can prove yourself as a father, I didn't mean keeping track of my meals. Now, right now, Courtney is probably sitting in a hospital next to A.J., buying every lie he's telling her. He is out for one thing and that's to get revenge on me, and he's using her to do it. So either you find a way to make her listen or I'll just stop A.J. myself.
Zander: Carly, whatever you are thinking right now -- bad idea.
Carly: A.J. Is using Courtney. We all watched him do that last night. He's just flaunting her in Sonny's face, just daring him to protect her? It's sick and it's sad and, when it happens, Sonny's going to lose it. I know him.
Zander: Sonny doesn't want you interfering with this, okay? This right here is exactly why he hired me to watch you.
Carly: A.J.'s going to break Courtney heart because it is the only way that he can hurt Sonny. It's sick and it's sad and, when he does it, Sonny is going to lose it. I know him.
Zander: Carly, Carly, come on.
Carly: No, you know what -- I have to do something.
Zander: Carly, stop, stop it.
Carly: It's making things worse. No, you know what -- I should just get him drunk.
Zander: You're not going to get him drunk, okay?
Carly: You know what, let me tell you something, A.J. -- we would have a little boy, Sonny and I, if it wasn't for him. You know, he'd be a year old, Michael would have a little brother, and Sonny, he'd have that smile that he used to have and that light in his eye. You know, things were good between us until one drunken moment, and A.J. just destroyed it all and I'm not going to let him destroy Courtney, too.
Zander: Carly, you have to stop. You can't get involved, okay?
Carly: No, A.J. knows how much Sonny hates him, that every time he sees him, Sonny thinks of losing our little boy. A.J.'s just goading him, and I'm going to stop him before --
Zander: No, Carly, stop, stop, stop, okay?
Sonny: I got to tell you something -- for the first time, I wish you'd have been with me last night. Maybe you could've helped Courtney when A.J. was putting his arms all over her, you know what I'm saying?
Mike: Yeah, well, I wanted to be there -- I even sent Carly flowers -- but you see, I had to work because I'm trying to prove to both of my kids that I can hold down a job.
Sonny: Well, you need to prove something even more to Courtney. You have to convince her she's being used by that weasel.
Mike: What, you're trusting me to do this?
Sonny: Well, I have no choice. You're the only person left who has any access to Courtney.
Mike: Yeah, well, barely.
Sonny: Mike, if you can't do it, just say so.
Mike: Well, Sonny, you're the one that did everything in your power to convince Courtney that she couldn't trust me, okay? Now what if that worked?
Sonny: Do you want me to say that I was wrong for warning Courtney that you leave when things get ugly? That's what I learned, Mike. That's all I know about you. Now, if you want to show her something different, if you want to be a father to her now, now is the time. Think about what you're going to say, come up with something that she can believe instead of wasting everybody's time trying to figure out why it isn't your fault.
Mike: Look, Sonny, I know damn good and well that I helped put Courtney in this situation, and I will do everything I can to get her out, okay?
Mike: Okay. I think I've got an idea. I've got -- I've got an idea that -- maybe it'll give you some time to calm down a little and put some distance between her and A.J., and that's all I'm going to say.
Sonny: You need some cash? You want to make some arrangements?
Mike: What I need?
Mike: Is my son to believe that maybe I can do some good for a change. Stay away from A.J., okay?
Sonny: Mike, I think we're way past the point where you can tell me what to do. Uh -- don't screw this up. I really need you to come through on this.
A.J.: The easiest solution is for me to leave town.
Courtney: And go where? For how long?
A.J.: Don't know. I guess I should just keep my options open.
Courtney: But your life is here.
A.J.: My family can't stand me, half the town agrees. Truth is you've been my only bright spot in my life in a very long time. You've made me want to believe in second chances, but you know what, Courtney -- Sonny's not going to give up. He's either going to make me look bad in your eyes or one day I'm going to step on the brake and it won't work -- or worse, you'll get hurt, and if that ever happened, I couldn't live with myself.
Courtney: I'm not afraid.
A.J.: Well, you should be. Has Sonny -- has Sonny ever mentioned his first wife?
A.J.: Her name was Lily. One of Sonny's enemies put a bomb in his car, except Sonny didn't get in the car, Lily did. That's how people in his business -- well, that's how they resolve their problems, okay? I don't want something that was intended for me to happen to you. It doesn't change the way I feel about you. But it's for the best.
Courtney: It's not best for me. I don't want you to go.
Nikolas: You should know whose side I'm on by now.
Gia: The police called Nikolas to tell him his grandmother had been taken to the hospital for emergency surgery. I mean, what was he supposed to do, stay home and eat breakfast?
Luke: Oh, I would have, but then, of course, I'm not her loving grandson.
Nikolas: Listen, you know I want her locked away for the rest of her life. She could be dying. I felt as if I should be here.
Luke: Well, that's very admirable, but don't let your heart get broken yet because I'm sure she's not dying. In fact, I'm sure this is only the first step towards an escape.
Mac: Luke, I ordered you to stay away from Helena. This situation is handled. All you're doing is distracting her guards.
Luke: Mac, what I did here is prove a point. If I can get in to her, she can get out.
Mac: Take the cuffs off. I'm warning you, Luke -- stay away from Helena or you'll be keeping her cell warm.
Luke: Commissioner, I'm not going anywhere until she's looking through bars or pushing up daisies.
Nikolas: She asked to speak to me, Commissioner.
Mac: Forget it.
Nikolas: Well, you know, the doctors think that she could be dying. You have two officers standing guard. I don't see the problem in having a conversation with her.
Mac: All right, three minutes.
Nikolas: Thank you.
Nikolas: Listen, I'd prefer to be alone.
Gia: Not a chance. Your grandmother is an expert at messing with people's minds.
Helena: Well. You came. Gia. Commissioner. My -- such a fuss for a poor, sick woman.
Nikolas: What is it you want to say to me?
Helena: I want to say goodbye. But I want to say it to you alone.
Lucky: Excuse me a sec, Dad.
Lucky: Are you okay?
Sarah: I've been assigned to Helena Cassadine’s case, but your father said that she tried to kill Elizabeth? Is that true?
Lucky: She wanted Elizabeth dead. She ordered someone to poison her.
Helena: I might die on the operating table and, if I don't, I suppose you've heard that I'm going to prison for life. Can't you grant me this one last grace?
Nikolas: May I have a moment alone, please?
Gia: Nikolas, don't listen to her.
Mac: Your grandmother lost her right to privacy about 100 crimes ago.
Nikolas: Commissioner, I realize that she deserves to be punished for what she's done, okay, but I am her grandson. I have every right to speak to her. She's not going to go anywhere. She can't escape. She's in the hospital. You'll hear things from the outside. Please?
Mac: Make it fast.
Gia: Nikolas, I really don't think --
Nikolas: Go, Gia, please? Go.
Helena: Thank you, my darling.
Roy: You need some help there, Doc?
Luke: Whoa, pal, you got here fast.
Roy: That's right, man. When you called, you said it was about Helena. What's going on?
Luke: She's in there faking a medical condition, but it's really a plot to escape, so what we're going to do is make sure that doesn't happen.
Lucky: Nikolas faked the poisoning. He got her to Sonny, Sonny got her out of town.
Sarah: That suite she was talking about at Sonny's casino -- Lizzie made it sound like it was a vacation.
Lucky: No. She was hiding out because her life depended on it.
Sarah: And what about you? Lizzie loves you. Why didn't you help her?
Lucky: Well, you know why, Sarah -- Helena messed with my mind. Do you get how much I hate that, really? I mean, Elizabeth put her life on the line. Nikolas risked everything and everybody that he loves to save me because I couldn't save myself. That's why I have to love Elizabeth again -- because if I don't, Helena ends up winning, and I'm not going to let that happen.
Sarah: There are other ways to fight Helena.
Lucky: Well, if somebody asks you to treat Helena, refuse, okay? Just tell them that you've got a major conflict of interests.
Sarah: Don't worry; I don't want to have anything to do with her.
Lucky: Hey, Roy.
Roy: Hey, Lucky. How you doing, man?
Lucky: Good. Any idea what Helena's planning?
Roy: Not yet.
Luke: Whatever it is, we're here to make sure it doesn't work.
Lucky: Well, whatever it is, I'm with you.
Nikolas: You wanted your privacy, you've got it. Say goodbye.
Helena: Well, actually, I had more in mind.
Edward: Another scone, my dear?
Lila: No, thank you.
Skye: Grandmother, you do realize that this is all a ploy to get control of the stock, don't you?
Lila: Of course I do. But why not take advantage of it?
Reginald: These are from Skye. Subtle.
Lila: Oh, they're lovely. Thank you, Skye.
Reginald: Come on, let's go.
Edward: No, wait, I'm having my breakfast with my wife.
Reginald: Yeah, well, your wife asked me to show you out.
Edward: Get your hands off me! Lila!
Lila: Thank you for breakfast.
Reginald: You're welcome.
Edward: You're welcome. Why would you take -- I was having breakfast.
Skye: Grandmother, you must realize that I've come here about E.L.Q., too. Look, I have done some terrible things since coming here, the worst being the battles between Grandfather and Janine, mainly because they hurt you, and for that, more than anything, I'm sorry.
Lila: You're hurt, too, because of Jax.
Skye: When Jax gave you control of his stock, it was to punish me. Or to wash his hands of me. For some reason, I think that's even worse. Ever since I got here, I thought the only thing that mattered was my sticking it to Grandfather and gaining control of E.L.Q. But then something else came into my life. I don't think I can define love, but I'm pretty sure it was everything that I think it's supposed to be. And I lost it. Along with everyone's trust, including Jax's. So what do I do? I come here with a bribe, trying to get my grandmother to give me control of a company that I stole from my own grandfather. I hate the way that sounds. It's self-centered and it's wrong and I am really going to try to turn over a new leaf. And to that end, I should go.
Lila: No, dear, stay and tell me why.
Skye: Why what?
Lila: Why do you still want E.L.Q. so badly?
Zander: Think before you act. Remember?
Carly: Damn that man for doing this to me.
Zander: Sonny would want you to stay out of this. All you're going to do is make it worse, okay? He's got his hands full with Courtney right now, okay, so think, think. Let him handle this on his own, okay? He's never gotten himself thrown in jail, but you have gotten him thrown in jail, okay? I'm sorry.
Carly: Yeah. Right, right.
Zander: Look, why don't you just focus on this club, okay? I mean, last night was great -- I mean, other than, you know -- but it's going to take a lot of work to keep it other than just a one-night wonder, you know?
Carly: Yeah, I know.
Zander: Okay. I got to go, but you know what -- sit. Come here, sit. Sit, put your legs up. Here you go. I want you to think about last night, remember how great it was. And I want you to do that thing where you think about what it's going to be like in this club, okay?
Carly: Um, okay.
Zander: And --
Carly: No, no, no, no!
Zander: Uh-uh. Bye. See you later.
Carly: No, A.J. You don't get to get away with this one. I won't let you down, Sonny, I promise.
Sonny: Glad you're here, Janine. I've got a lot to discuss.
Janine: Sonny, I just read the paper.
Janine: What happened at the club last night and where's Courtney? She hasn't come home, she didn't call me.
Sonny: A.J. got to Courtney last night.
Janine: Got to her how?
Sonny: Well, that's what I want to know, Janine.
Janine: Okay, what do you mean?
Sonny: What do I mean? Okay, what I mean is I have pretty tough questions and you'd better have some damn good answers.
Courtney: You're the only one here who really understands me, my only real friend. I'm not asking you to stay here and be a target for my brother. You have every right to want to leave. But I'd miss you.
A.J.: You mean that? Or would you just miss the gifts? Come on, be honest.
Courtney: I would miss you.
A.J.: Wouldn't you know it -- just when I'm starting to get somewhere, I have to skip town. And by the way, I don't think I got a chance to mention this, but you're a very good kisser.
Courtney: Thank you. But I don't think that it was worth what you paid for it.
A.J.: Oh, it was worth it, believe me. Come with me.
A.J.: We'd have to sneak out of the hospital, but why not?
Courtney: How? You know that Sonny's got people everywhere. He's probably paid the nurses.
A.J.: My dad. My dad will help -- I hope.
Courtney: Well, what if it makes everything worse?
A.J.: And what if it makes everything better? Come on. It'll give us a chance to get to know each other away from this place. Tell you what -- you pick the place. We don't have to pack. We'll buy everything we need once we get there, and separate hotel rooms.
Courtney: But it wouldn't be fair. I'm not in love with you.
A.J.: I know. I won't push. And if all we ever are is friends, that's okay because there's still so much I want to share with you. And -- who knows? Maybe you can fall, given half the chance -- the kind of chance Sonny will never give us.
[Knock on door]
Mike: Hey. I read what happened in the paper. Are you all right?
Courtney: How did you know to find me here?
Mike: Well, the article said that A.J. was admitted for observation, so I took the chance you might be visiting. How are you doing?
A.J.: Still alive.
Mike: Courtney, I've been worried. Could we have a couple minutes?
Courtney: Are you going to yell at me?
Mike: I just want to talk.
Courtney: I'll be right back.
Sonny: I made arrangements to keep A.J. from contacting Courtney. Something went wrong. Do you have any idea what that was, Janine?
Janine: How? I don't know. I just told you that Courtney hasn't called me.
Sonny: Oh, oh! Maybe it's my sister now, checking in on her loving mother.
A.J.: Janine, hey, it's me, A.J. I'm at the hospital, 7th floor. I need you. I need your help right now. Hello? Janine?
Janine: Is Courtney all right?
Nikolas: What is it you want?
Helena: Nikolas, there are things that you need to know that I won't be here to tell you. Even if I make it to prison, I -- I won't last long.
Nikolas: Well, you know, your survival strategies have always worked for you before. I'm sure they'll do just fine for you in prison. Do unto others before they can do unto you?
Helena: That's something that Stavros used to say.
Nikolas: I'd say we're finished.
Helena: Nikolas? Nikolas, there are things you don't know, things that could hurt you.
Nikolas: I don't need your warnings, Grandmother. Quite frankly, I don't need or want anything from you at all.
Helena: Oh, Nikolas, you are my purpose, the shining center of my life. Now, before you're finished with me, I have a riddle for you.
Roy: Is there any chance they brought Helena to the hospital because she's actually sick?
Luke: Well, that's what they're claiming, but the timing's too perfect, you know. I'm about to remarry Laura, she starts flopping around in her cell.
Luke: You're in, right?
Roy: Oh, yeah, I'm in, even if it's only to make sure you don't get arrested for trying to operate on the woman with a rusty spoon.
Gia: I should've never left Nikolas alone with her.
Lucky: Hey, don't worry about Nikolas. He knows how Helena works. He's not going to let himself get caught up in all these lies.
Nikolas: I'm not playing your games anymore. I only came here out of some sick sense of duty. I was wrong. I should've never done it.
Helena: No, instinct. Instinct brought you here, Nikolas. It's yours. It's Cassadine. Listen to it. Listen to me.
Nikolas: Fine. I'm listening. Get it over with.
Helena: As you wish. When is the sun like the dark of the moon and never brought to the light?
Nikolas: I don't know and I don't care. It's a waste of my time, okay?
Helena: Nikolas --
Helena: Nikolas, figure out the answer before the answer is given to you.
Sonny: How much is A.J. Quartermaine paying you to help him get to my sister?
Janine: That's -- that's not what happened, Sonny. Courtney wanted --
Sonny: She was staying with him. You knew it! You lied to me about where she was. And you covered for A.J. and when Courtney was free of him, you did everything you could to push them back together.
Janine: No, Courtney has a mind of her own.
Sonny: And A.J.'s got a lot of money, which is what you're after -- a payoff! Even if you have to sell your own child to get it.
Janine: Okay, now, I am trying to do what's best for Courtney. That's what I'm trying to do! You are a criminal. Mike's a loser. I --
Sonny: A.J.'s putting Courtney in a position where he can hurt her! I can't stop it! Is that what you want?
Janine: You're wrong. A.J. loves her.
Sonny: He's a liar! You know it! You don't care! All you care about is that he's paying you. It doesn't matter to you what he's doing to her!
Janine: I know Courtney could do a lot worse. He's not just trying to get her in bed, for God's sake. A.J. wants to marry her.
Mike: Look, I -- I've been worried sick ever since you went off to stay with your friend.
Courtney: I needed to get away from Sonny. I needed to be in a place where no one told me what to do or who I can and cannot see. And I came back here and I saw that nothing had changed. So if you're here to slam A.J. --
Mike: I am here because you're my daughter and I love you. It got pretty ugly last night, didn't it?
Mike: Look, my car's still in the shop. So how about I treat you to a cab ride, we go to wherever you've got your clothes, you can change, and we'll just go someplace and grab a burger and -- and just talk. What do you say?
Courtney: I'm -- I'm staying with Mom at that place that Sonny owns. Can you pick me up in an hour?
Mike: Got yourself a deal.
Courtney: Hey. I'm going to go grab some lunch with my dad.
Courtney: I need to think about going away with you. Don't worry, I won't -- I won't mention it to my dad.
A.J.: Thank you. I really hope you work things out with your dad -- I do -- but Sonny could be using Mike against us.
Courtney: You know, I'm pretty sure that my dad's on my side. And besides, Sonny would never ask for his help with anything.
A.J.: I hope you're right.
Skye: Why do I want E.L.Q. so badly? I'm not even sure anymore. You know, the whole way over here, I just kept thinking about ways that I could snow you. But what's the use? You'd see right through me and -- well, I -- I care about what you think about me. Yes, I want E.L.Q., but I don't want to hurt you to get it. I don't want to be angry with my father and my grandfather and -- well, if it was love that burned so badly when it slipped through my fingers, I don't want that, either.
Lila: If you're going to ask people to make allowances for you, then you need to do the same thing yourself.
Skye: If you're suggesting that I show some generosity of spirit, well, I've never been very good at that.
Lila: My dear, it's not too late to try.
Luke: Helena's been on her deathbed before. It lasts just long enough for people to let down their guard. Then suddenly she's fully recovered, holding a knife to your throat.
Roy: What if, just for the sake of argument, she's really dying this time and her final move is to trick you into killing her, or at least contributing to her death? Sort of a frame-up, one final frame-up as her parting shot?
Luke: That's a damn good theory, and a scary one. But I don't think I buy it. I've looked into her eyes. The old warhorse is not finished yet.
Gia: Why won't you tell us what Helena said?
Nikolas: It made no sense to me.
Lucky: Hey, Sarah --
Sarah: What's up?
Lucky: What's that nurse doing in there right now?
Sarah: Probably administering the preop sedative. Looks like they're about ready to take Helena up to surgery.
Nikolas: So how long until the sedative kicks in?
Sarah: Almost immediately. How did Helena get like this? I mean, what puts somebody on the path to get them that twisted?
Lucky: That's easy -- money, power, a slow but steady process of whacked-out thinking that says that they're right and everybody else is against them.
Gia: Let's go home.
Nikolas: I -- sorry. I have a meeting with Alan Quartermaine in a few minutes, okay? Why don't you go back to Wyndemere and I'll meet you back at the stables for your riding lesson?
Gia: Hmm, I have a better idea.
Nikolas: What's that?
Gia: Why don't I go check in with Laura over at Deception and then I will meet you back here and take you away for a day of pampering at a spa so you can forget all this ever happened.
Nikolas: Will you stop worrying about me?
Gia: I can't help it. I don't know why, I'm scared.
Nikolas: No reason to be scared. The only thing you should worry about is your riding lesson because I will not take no for an answer. So what I will do is walk you to your car as long as you promise to meet me back at the stables, okay? See you, guys.
Lucky: See you.
Mac: Neither of you are getting on the elevator with Helena.
Luke: That makes no sense. You trust him to do undercover work for you, you don't trust him to go up in an elevator?
Mac: Are you planning to go into surgery with Helena, too?
Luke: Bubba, something stinks about this whole thing.
Mac: Yeah, I agree, Luke. You're distracting my officers and interfering with their ability to do their job.
Mac: If my men catch you on the surgery floor, I'm telling them to arrest you. Scorpio. Yeah, I'm at the hospital.
Roy: Plan B?
Luke: Yeah, I'll take the stairway around the corner and you take the one in back of the doctors' lounge.
Sarah: Hey, Lucky? Hey, I just -- I just wanted to apologize.
Lucky: Yeah? For what?
Sarah: Just about the way that I've been riding you about Elizabeth. I'm starting to realize what the two of you have been through.
Lucky: So does this mean that you're going to stay out of my way?
Sarah: Yeah. And I think you should go for it. Give it all you have.
Lucky: Thank you.
Sarah: Hey. I just want to say, you know, I was wrong about you. You're still that great guy I used to know.
Lucky: Thank you. I'll see you around.
Luke: Well, hello, pumpkin.
Woman: I think there's been a mixup.
Janine: Honey. I was just trying to reach A.J. looking for you.
Courtney: Guess you know that A.J.'s in the hospital.
Janine: Yeah. We really need to talk, honey.
Courtney: You know, I have to get changed for lunch.
Janine: Lunch with who?
Courtney: A.J. -- he asked me to go away with him for a while until things settle down. Do you think I should?
Edward: Oh, now, wait a minute. Wait, wait, wait, young lady. Unless you have brought my great-grandson here with you, you will not take another step.
Carly: Oh, you know what -- I'm here to discuss A.J., and if you pay attention, you might save his worthless life.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Mac: I do not want Helena Cassadine to get out of this building.
Lucky: Helena's missing.
Courtney: There is no chance that Dad is on Sonny's side.
Janine: Oh, please. There's a big chance.
Sonny: I understand you want to marry my sister. Let's talk about that.
