General Hospital Transcript Thursday 3/21/02
>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Helena: Bring me $500,000.
Skye: I don't want or need anything from you, thanks.
Alan: I will do whatever it takes to get you out of here.
Carly: Sonny? It's A.J.'s handwriting.
Gia: Well, I guess you caught me.
Nikolas: Yeah. Doing what? What do you want in the safe, Gia?
Gia: A lot of money.
Nikolas: Money for what? Answer me. What is this about?
Reporter: Commissioner, do you know how Mrs. Cassadine escaped?
Second reporter: What's being done to find her?
Luke: There's a good question.
Mac: Mrs. Cassadine's current whereabouts are unknown. But an all-points bulletin has been issued. We've set up checkpoints at a 10-mile radius on I-90 and Routes 50, 62, and 210.
Reporter: Can you tell us anything about her medical condition?
Mac: Her condition remains serious.
Bobbie: What's this?
Mac: If left untreated, it could get worse.
Bobbie: I thought Mac wanted to keep the press out of this.
Luke: He did. I disagreed. There's a dangerous character out there, Barbara. The people of the chuckles have a right to know.
Bobbie: So you called a press conference?
Luke: Look, I figure if Helena isn't already out of the country, a public manhunt just might slow her down.
Bobbie: Well, it seems to me as if Mac is doing everything he can.
Luke: It's not enough. It's never enough with this guy. He's not equipped to handle a criminal of her magnitude. I've seen her, Barbara. She's back on her game. She's going to be causing havoc for us.
Bobbie: All right. Tell me what I can do to help.
Luke: Well, you could ask around. You could see if anybody saw any part of the escape or anything at all.
Bobbie: Actually, I do have something for you.
Luke: That's my girl. Spill it.
Felicia: Are you all right? Mac just called and said that Helena had escaped.
Laura: Oh, yes. He called me, too. He just wanted to assure me that, you know, the police were doing everything they could to find her, and -- you know, he actually offered to give us a 24-hour patrolman outside the house just to make sure that Lesley Lu and my mom were safe. And I'm sure that's not necessary, but I took him up on it anyway.
Felicia: I don't blame you for that. Did you want something from me?
Laura: Well, yes, actually, I do. Doesn't have anything to do with Helena, though.
Edward: I suspected as much.
Skye: Well, you like flowers, don't you, Grandfather?
Edward: Who appointed you Martha Stewart?
Skye: The new arrangement, you mean? What do you think?
Edward: Well, I think it is presumptuous and counterproductive and totally unacceptable.
Skye: Grandfather, we're going to be co-C.E.O.s I think the office should reflect an atmosphere of -- of equality and mutual respect. The new feeling of harmony here at E.L.Q.
Edward: Save it for the P.R. department, all right?
Skye: I'm only following Grandmother's wishes.
Edward: Hmm. You are luring me into complacency while you sharpen your knife to stab me in the back.
Skye: I hardly think that rearranging the furniture would count as sabotage.
Jax: Well, this is no way to start a new partnership.
Carly: It's from A.J. I recognize his handwriting.
Sonny: Let me see.
Carly: What does it say?
Alexis: May I see the note?
Alexis: "Sonny, I don't want you to worry about Courtney. She's safe with me."
Carly: "We have decided to go away together. This is what Courtney wants. Please try to understand." Typical A.J. He's gloating. He thinks he's won.
Alexis: You know what? This could be a bluff to try to get you to overreact and further alienate Courtney.
Sonny: Yeah? All right. Get here soon.
Alexis: What happened?
Sonny: A.J.'s out of the hospital. So is Courtney.
Carly: So what are you going to do?
Laura: I was looking for my old wedding dress, and, well, my mom told me that the last time she saw it, it was packed in some boxes in the attic of this house. And, I don't know, I guess I was just kind of wondering whether or not my family's things might still be here.
Felicia: Yeah, I think so. I mean, there's boxes that are up there from when the Webbers did live here. I don't know if the dress is in them. I've never looked. But if we go up there, there's going to be lots of clutter of Scorpio-Jones' stuff between the attic door and the wall.
Laura: Yeah, I know. Attics are kind of like that.
Felicia: Luke's a pack rat.
Laura: He is.
Felicia: Laura, I'm really glad that you and Luke found your way back to each other. I think it's the right thing. And I just wanted to say congratulations on your wedding.
Laura: Do you really mean that?
Laura: Thanks. Thank you.
Felicia: Let's go find the dress.
Bobbie: I have heard all kinds of rumors, everything from "Helena hijacked a helicopter off the roof" to "She put on a pair of scrubs and walked right out the front door."
Mac: I wonder where she'd get an idea like that? Couldn't have been from you, could it?
Luke: Helena doesn't need ideas from me to slip through your fingers.
Mac: She had help.
Mac: From you.
Luke: Me? Come on, Mac. I'm the guy who said don't let her go up in the elevator without DiLucca or another guard in there or something.
Mac: You're the one who called this press conference, Luke. Because you couldn't wait one extra second, the department is going to be flooded with all kind of false leads. We're already getting reports that she's been seen from bus stations to back yards. And before we can sift through to a legitimate lead, Helena could be halfway around the world.
Bobbie: Oh, come on, Mac. She escaped from police custody. You lost her. Luke didn�t.
Mac: You're right, Bobbie. Helena's disappearance is my fault. But so is finding her, and you just made that a hell of a lot harder.
Bobbie: Hey, this is a woman who almost killed my son and my brother. Naturally, Luke is a little impatient.
Luke: A little.
Mac: Well, if you would just remind your brother that if he interferes in this investigation, he'll be working this case from a jail cell. I'm warning you, Luke. Don't push me.
Bobbie: Mac does have a point.
Luke: He's got nothing. He never does. That's the problem. Damn that woman. I should have thrown her down the same black hole her Popsicle son went into. I'm telling you, if I get her this time, she's not going to get away. What else did you hear?
Bobbie: One of the ambulance drivers told me that he thought he saw Helena in a blue sedan on Route 32.
Luke: Route 32, okay. Thanks, I'll be in touch.
Bobbie: Luke, where you going?
Luke: Route 32. Where do you think?
Bobbie: Of course. Of course.
Nikolas: What does needing money have to do with Helena, Gia? Has she contacted you? Has she threatened you in any way?
Gia: It's not about Helena directly. I wanted the money for Lucky and Elizabeth.
Gia: Maybe that's it. Maybe it's because of the accident. I mean, they don't have the options we do, and Helena is out there somewhere. What if she comes after them? If they had the money, they could get away before anything happened to them.
Nikolas: Gia, stop lying to me. Why didn't you just ask me for the money?
Gia: You weren't here. I wanted to take care of it for you.
Nikolas: I'm the one who needs to deal with this, okay? Helena is my grandmother. That makes her my problem. I will do whatever I have to to keep the people I love safe. I have made that clear to you.
Gia: And what if you're the one in danger? Helena is devious. She is desperate. She could be looking for a way to hurt you or use you so she could get away. I won't let that happen.
Nikolas: That's exactly how I feel about you. If you want something, you ask me for it. All right? Look, I'm going to speak to Lucky and Elizabeth. Whatever they need, they've got.
Nikolas: No one has to run from Helena. Excuse me. Yeah? Are you sure? Okay, I'm on my way. Security spotted someone near the stables.
Gia: Nikolas, don't go. Let security handle it. That's what they're here for.
Nikolas: It's my responsibility, Gia, and so are you. I will handle it.
Nikolas: Okay, I know you're there. I know you're there. Show yourself right now!
Luke: Hey, relax. It's just me.
Nikolas: What the hell are you doing here?
Luke: Same thing you are -- looking for Helena. I think she's been here.
Gia: Jerry Clifford, please. Gia Campbell. Hi, Jerry. Me, too. I know, I can't wait to get back to work. Listen, I'm thinking about making an investment. How much money do I have if I sell my stocks and cash in my C.D.s, everything? Okay. Thanks. I'll let you know when I decide. Okay.
Helena: Financial difficulties?
Gia: What are you doing here?
Helena: I came to get my money. But you seem to be having difficulty procuring it.
Gia: Look, they know you're on the island. They saw you.
Helena: They didn't see me. I've been in that tunnel for some time now, waiting for you.
Gia: There's no way I can get you the money.
Helena: Oh. How sad for Nikolas. I mean, I -- it would break my heart to have to go to the police and tell them that Nikolas was my accomplice in my escape, but these are desperate times.
Gia: Okay, I can get you $100,000 by tomorrow afternoon.
Helena: I suggest you do better, Gia. Much better, or I will be caught and Nikolas will be arrested for arranging my escape and for obstructing justice and covering up that little car accident you had.
Laura: Wow. I had no idea that my family left so many things up there. I should really come back some time and clear that out for you.
Felicia: Oh, that's okay.
Laura: I'm just so glad I found it.
Felicia: What's wrong?
Laura: It's empty.
Laura: Yeah. Look, the dress is gone.
Edward: Thank God you're here. Perhaps you can get through to her.
Jax: I'm not a referee, Edward.
Skye: We don't need one. My grandfather and I are more than capable of forging a working relationship. After all, this is a new beginning -- for you, for me, and for E.L.Q.
Jax: Well, that sounds reasonable to me.
Edward: I should have known. You were the one who orchestrated this mess in the first place when you gave control of those shares to Lila. Oh, God, why did I bother? Excuse me.
Skye: Well, I have work to do, so unless you've come on business --
Jax: The western digital deal, the executed contracts -- you were right. They -- they caved on the final percentages. You got everything you asked for. Congratulations. Well, I guess now you can get back to --
Jax: Doing whatever it is that --
Edward: I'll get it. Yes? Oh. Wait -- wait a minute. Hold on. I'll take this in the conference room. I assume you haven't tapped that phone yet.
Skye: Something funny?
Jax: Well, it's just that, you know, this whole "killing Edward with kindness" routine -- it's got him completely paranoid. He's too busy looking over his shoulder to take an effective role as C.E.O. It's a brilliant strategy.
Skye: Oh, I'm so glad you approve. It's my only real gift -- manipulation. Oh, I can sit here all day long just pulling Edward�s strings. Hey, I've got nothing better to do. I mean, why bother with the petty annoyance of actual personal growth?
Jax: Skye, that's not exactly what I meant.
Skye: Now, look, you can go, okay? The deal is done. You've signed away control of the company. Why waste your time?
Jax: Because I still have an interest in you.
Sonny: How did my sister get out of the hospital?
Man: Dr. Quartermaine ran interference.
Second man: He wouldn't let us stay in the hallway outside A.J.'s room.
First man: Then he braced us at the nurses' station and threatened to call the cops if we didn't leave.
Sonny: You can go.
Carly: Okay, Alan must have smuggled A.J. and Courtney out of the hospital in an ambulance or something.
Sonny: I had people watching the E.R., the loading docks, everything. The only thing we couldn't cover was the Medevac helicopter.
Alexis: Do you think that Alan would willingly misuse emergency equipment?
Carly: Look, A.J. can get Alan to do anything. All he has to do is play on his guilt about being a bad father.
Alexis: We have to assume that they're already at the airport. All right, so maybe we should try looking -- Connecticut, somewhere. Hartford, Buffalo.
[Knock on door]
Sonny: Hey. Thanks for coming.
Benny: Got here as soon as I could.
Sonny: I got to -- I got to speak with Benny privately.
Carly: Okay, you know what? I'm going to go in the kitchen and I'll shut the door. I'll turn the fan on. I promise I won't try and cook, and I'm going to make you a sandwich.
Sonny: No, no, no, I'm fine. I'm not hungry. I just -- we got -- we got stuff to clear up.
Carly: Okay. Then I'm leaving. But call me, okay?
Sonny: I will.
Carly: She'll be okay.
Alexis: I'll be right across the hall. Thank you.
Alexis: Carly, I need you to stop.
Carly: Stop and do what?
Alexis: That's what we need to discuss.
Benny: So I got people on the way to all the airports within a 50-mile --
Sonny: This is more than about searching the airports, Benny. A.J. took my sister. He's trying to play with my head. I got to take care of it.
Alexis: I'm asking that you stop and think before you take any action. I know that you want to help Sonny.
Carly: You know what? You don't know what Sonny needs.
Alexis: I know that Sonny needs to find his sister, and the best way for him to do that is for you to let it be and let him do that.
Carly: Are you billing me for this advice?
Alexis: Carly, I know that you want what's best for Sonny, and historically you have done things in an effort to help. Carly, I'm concerned that you are going to do something you shouldn't do in an effort not to feel left out.
Carly: You're the one who feels left out, Alexis. You have no part in this. A.J. has never destroyed someone you love or broken your heart. You cannot begin to possibly understand how Sonny and I feel right now, but it doesn't stop you from barging in and trying to manage our emotions and everything else.
Alexis: I'm going to try to say this again. Maybe you can hear me. I know that you care about Sonny and I know that you have his best interests at heart. I know --
Carly: You know what? You don't know anything. Okay, Alexis? You are a lawyer. You draw up contracts, you get people out of jail, and every once in a while when Sonny's bored or he's lonely or he's got nothing better to do, he flirts with you a little to pass the time. But you do not know him -- the good or the bad. You know, you can't possibly know what he carries inside him, all those things, and what he is going through right now and feeling. You don't know these things. But I do because I have been with him through his very worst, and he has been with me. And you know what? I got him past it before and I will get him past it again, and I really don't give a damn whether you like it or not.
Alexis: Don't make this conversation into something that it isn't.
Carly: You know what, Alexis? I get your game, and I'm so sick of it. You sit across the hall in your apartment thinking up ways to see Sonny, trying to make your job as his lawyer into something other than it is. So why don't you just drop it for a couple of days and help Sonny so he can find his sister before you start hanging all over him again.
Alexis: If you would stop insulting me for one minute, you might hear that I'm trying to help you, Carly. I am concerned that you will, in a thoughtless second, do something that will not only impair you temporarily with Sonny, but it will impair you for a lifetime. So hate me if you want, but I'm suggesting that you stay out of this.
Carly: You know what, Alexis? You don't tell me what to do about Sonny or anything else. No one does. Go away.
Alexis: Nothing would make me happier.
Sonny: A.J.'s got Courtney out of the country right now. They're probably on a private jet. He's probably pitching this as a romantic vacation, so I want you to call in every favor that's owed to us in the Caribbean. I want every employee from every hotel, yacht, and private villa carrying A.J. and Courtney�s pictures.
Benny: Yeah, you may need to speak to Mr. Morales personally just to ensure his cooperation.
Sonny: Set it up, Benny.
Sonny: Set it up. I want you to contact our associates in Palermo, Hong Kong, and Moscow. Have them check the resorts in their territories. Now, A.J. is a rich kid, so he's going to probably set up somewhere where I cannot reach him --
Sonny: Somewhere where he thinks my employees are conspicuous.
Benny: Okay, now, I'm sure the associates will be willing to help, but you're going to really incur a debt. This could be very expensive.
Sonny: Benny, if they want to get paid, they're going to get paid. I want my sister found.
Benny: Yes, I understand.
Sonny: When's the last time you've heard from Jason?
Benny: From Jason?
Benny: He made a withdrawal from one of the accounts in the grand keys about three months ago.
Sonny: See if you can trace it. I want to speak to him.
Benny: Do you want Jason on this?
Sonny: Benny, find him.
Benny: Yes, Sir.
Sonny: All right, call me when the arrangements are final.
Benny: Yes, Sir.
Sonny: Oh, Benny?
Sonny: Those two -- those two guys who let Courtney and A.J. out of the hospital --
Benny: Timothy and Kenneth, yeah.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah, whatever. They're incompetent.
Sonny: I don't want them ever in a position to fail me again.
Benny: Yes, Sir. I understand that.
Skye: Even knowing Sonny's threats were a hoax, knowing that I manipulated you into getting control of this company and that I am the sister of an alleged loser and seducer of young innocent women related to mobsters, you're still interested?
Jax: You know, right now I'm so fed up with the way you treat the world and the way you treat yourself that I'd like to shake some sense into you.
Skye: Well, others have tried, but the demons in me just laugh with glee and will not let go.
Jax: You know, you're your own worst enemy. You do realize this, don't you? It is a shame and a waste.
Skye: Oh, what a lovely description of me -- "a shame and a waste." Really, I'm flattered.
Jax: Skye -- what is it going to take to get through to you?
Edward: Helena Cassadine has escaped. They just called from the hospital to notify us.
Jax: Escaped when?
Edward: This morning. They brought her in for surgery, and they should've let her just die in the cell by herself after all the misery that she's caused. Her son killing poor Chloe --
Jax: Excuse me.
Felicia: I had no idea the dress was even up there. I mean, who could've taken it?
Felicia: Helena? From here? From this house? Why?
Laura: I don't know why. I mean, probably just for the sheer annoyance of it. I don't know why she does anything she does. I'm just saying that she could have.
Felicia: No, I think there's another explanation. I mean, this box has been in the attic for years. Robin lived here her entire life. Maybe she went up there and took it out of the box and used it as a costume. Or maybe my girls even went up and took it out and used it for dress-up.
Laura: Yeah, maybe. But they retied the box with exactly the same string the same way? Isn't that weird?
Felicia: I'll ask my girls about it.
Laura: Okay. You know what? I really want to catch up with Luke and see if they've had any luck finding Helena. I'm sorry about this. I should really --
Felicia: No, no, no, no, I'm going to ask the girls about it. If you need my help, give me a call, please.
Laura: Thank you. Hopefully, they're going to find Helena before any of us needs any help.
Luke: Somebody's been here.
Nikolas: I don't think my grandmother's ever eaten anything that came from a package.
Luke: Well, you're probably right, but fugitives can't afford to be so choosy with their diets.
Nikolas: It's not her. It's not her.
Luke: Nikolas, Bobbie told me that an ambulance driver thinks he may have spotted her on Route 32. Now, that would put her right at that little spittle of land across from the island.
Nikolas: Okay, even if Helena had a boat waiting and managed to get here, we have stable hands, groundskeeper, extra security people looking for her. Besides, why waste her time? You know, she couldn't expect anything here.
Luke: Well, you can't be sure of that. Maybe some old employee -- a stable boy, a boy toy, one of her little playthings --
Nikolas: No, no, no, they were hired by my uncle. Luke, they have no use for her.
Luke: Is anything missing lately? Been stolen?
Nikolas: No, not that I know of. No. What would she come here to steal, you know?
Luke: What does she need the most? Money, lots of money. You think of something?
Luke: Has anybody made a large withdrawal from the accounts of the family?
Nikolas: I know for a fact that there's not one single person in my life who would protect Helena. I know that.
Luke: That's not an answer.
Nikolas: I don't know if something's missing or not. But I guarantee you if the money that Helena needs suddenly disappears, my accountants would notify me immediately.
Luke: I don't think you should trust your accountants or bankers or anybody else. I think you should check the financial situation personally. See if there have been any suspicious transactions, withdrawals --
Nikolas: Okay, you know what? You're right, you're right. It's all on computer at the house. You and -- let's go. Come on, let's go. We'll know in 10 minutes, Luke.
Edward: You barely knew Chloe, did you? She was a lovely girl. She was open and generous. She even had a kind word to say about you. And I tell you, that Helena Cassadine is as guilty as her son for the death of that poor --
Skye: Grandfather, please. You're a heart patient. Try to calm down.
Edward: Oh, but just think how much sooner you'll get what you want if I keel over from stress, huh?
Skye: Here. Drink this.
Edward: What's this? Hemlock?
Skye: Herbal tea. Shall I taste it first?
Edward: No. Don't bother. You have probably already ingested the antidote. Here.
Skye: Ugh. Fine. We've wasted enough time already. But you know, it is getting late. You've put in such a full day already. Maybe you should go.
Edward: Why are you suddenly so anxious to have me leave the office?
Skye: Fine, stay all night. I don't care. Oh. But since one of my appointments did cancel so suddenly, I think I can make that meeting with Pacific Industries at the P.C. Grill tonight.
Edward: No, no, no, no, you'll do no such thing. You just sit there and you sip your little tea. If you think you can pull the wool over my eyes this easily, you think again, young lady. I'll get to that meeting myself.
Skye: If you say so.
[Knock on door]
Jax: Okay, pack your bags. You and Kristina are moving onto the Isabella with me.
Alexis: And why would we do that?
Jax: You haven't heard?
Alexis: Obviously not.
Jax: Helena escaped from the hospital. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to moor the Isabella offshore, out on open water, so the only way Helena will be able to get to you is by chartering a submarine, which is unlikely. You'll be safe there.
Alexis: Sorry, I'm not going.
Jax: Look, whatever trouble Sonny has at the moment, he'll have to go it alone, okay? You have more important things to worry about. Like avoiding the woman that killed your mother.
Alexis: Been there, done that. Not interested anymore. And as far as what's going on here, A.J. ran off with Courtney.
Jax: Well, I am sorry to hear that, but that's Sonny's personal problem. It has nothing to do with you. You and Kristina�s safety has everything to do with me.
Alexis: Then take Kristina. You take Kristina if she wants to go. But you know what? I'm staying.
Jax: You know, it's entirely possible that Helena�s headed for the two of you.
Alexis: I'm not running from Helena anymore. If she wants to come here, let her come. I'll just do whatever.
Jax: You know, Sonny has a strong hold on you, doesn't he?
Alexis: My not wanting to play with Helena has absolutely nothing to do with Sonny. And as far as Sonny is concerned, I'm done apologizing. So you and everyone else can make of it whatever you damn well please.
Sonny: Es importante que mi hermana no se asuste, que no vea nada malo. Entiendes? Okay, Javier. Gracias y te debo. Bye.
Courtney's voice: I know that A.J. refused to press charges. And when he was decent enough to try and shake your hand, you couldn't even bring yourself to do it!
Sonny's voice: That's right.
Courtney�s voice: I know that you blame A.J. for being drunk when Carly fell down the stairs. But it was not his fault. It was an accident, okay? A.J. did not mean for you and --
Sonny: Stop defending him!
Courtney's voice: I was lonely, okay? I needed someone to listen to me who was kind and gentle.
Sonny: Did he touch you?
Sonny: Did he touch you?
Courtney: Ugh. Is that why you wanted me to see a doctor?
Sonny: Just answer me!
Sonny: No? No, he didn't touch you?
Courtney: No, it is none of your business!
Sonny: He's working you to get to me.
Courtney: When I told A.J. that I didn't run that red light, he believed me. He believed me when nobody else did, and especially you. Now, can you stack up to A.J. on that one?
A.J.'s voice: I'm going to beat you. I'm going take away what you can't bear to lose.
Sonny: You keep trying to come to me by hurting the women around me.
A.J.: I've done nothing to Courtney.
Sonny: You've done nothing? You know what they call men like you?
A.J.: I'm waiting.
Sonny: You know what they call men like you, who use little girls? A pimp. You could've ended this on your terms. Now I'm going to end it on mine.
Felicia: The box was tied with the same string, the tissue paper was in the box, but Laura�s dress was gone. And I was wondering if either one of you had taken the dress out of the box.
Maxie: Why are you assuming one of us took it?
Felicia: I'm not assuming. I'm just asking.
Maxie: No, you're making assumptions the way you did when you thought I was drinking beer the other night. Well, what do you think, that I got drunk one night and stuffed Laura�s old wedding dress under my bed so I could elope with the next guy who had a six-pack and a driver's license?
Felicia: Maxie, I'm sorry that you feel persecuted. I was just asking if either one of you had taken the dress out of the box to play with it years ago, which would have been fine.
Maxie: Maybe it was Robin. Did it ever occur to you to question her?
Felicia: Yes. And I will the next time she calls, now that I know that neither one of you took it.
Maxie: So are we done with the third degree?
Felicia: We're done with the third degree. Go do your homework.
Georgie: Maxie had a cigarette after school yesterday.
Maxie: That was a pen, you dope! I had a white pen in my mouth. Get real, would you? Between you and Mom, by next week I'll be holding up banks to support my drug habit.
Bobbie: Luke was here earlier, but he left to follow up on a lead.
Bobbie: I'm sure he'll find Helena.
Laura: I know. I think that's what worries me. Oh, I don't know. I'm being silly, right? I mean, I have faith in him and in -- in me and all of us.
Bobbie: I do, too.
Laura: And it is different this time. I mean, it's really different. She's out of money, for one thing. She's ill, for another, and she's on the run this time, so -- I'm sure they'll find her and they'll put her away and everything will be all right.
Bobbie: It will be all right. You know, Luke loves you very much. You do know that, don't you?
Laura: I do. You know, that reminds me of something. I'd like to ask you a favor. I would like you to be my maid of honor.
Bobbie: Oh. Well, thank you. That means more than I can say.
Laura: Should I take that as a yes?
Bobbie: Oh, yeah.
Bobbie: Oh, I'm honored. I really am.
Laura: Thank you.
Bobbie: We're all overdue for a happy ending.
Laura: Yeah. I think I'd just feel better if Helena wasn't out there somewhere, though.
Bobbie: Yeah. Well, at least Luke does have some idea where to search for her. I was telling him earlier one of the ambulance drivers thought he saw her in a blue sedan on Route 32.
Laura: And he took off, and I know exactly where he is.
Bobbie: Wow. You really are on the same wavelength, aren't you?
Laura: Yeah, yeah, I guess I am. Nothing's going to stop us now. I'll see you.
Helena: Well, it's -- it's lovely. But it's not nearly enough. Think cash, Gia.
Gia: Look, I spoke to my business manager, and the soonest I can get you the money is tomorrow. But it's nowhere near what you're asking.
Helena: Then I suggest that you get more creative, Gia. You know, we're in this together because if I'm caught, I have no alternative but to tell the police that Nikolas not only helped me escape, but he bribed witnesses and he suppressed evidence in covering up that traffic accident that you caused. Now, I'm afraid that our darling Nikolas could have some serious legal problems because of you �
Luke: This is taking too much time. I really ought to get out on Route 32.
Nikolas: Okay, okay. If it makes you feel better, we'll check the grounds after we look through the accounts. You know, there are places here you don't know about.
Luke: Funny, I was going to say the same thing to you.
Gia: It's Luke and Nikolas.
Helena: Think money, Gia.
Gia: Okay, okay, just go.
Helena: Oh --
Gia: Helena, what's wrong?
Zander: Hey, I got your message. What's wrong?
Carly: I need your help.
Zander: With what?
Carly: How far are you willing to go with me?
Jax: Sure you won't change your mind?
Alexis: I'm sure.
Jax: You know, I'm doing this because I want to protect you and Kristina. You know I'm doing this because -- because I love you.
Alexis: And I love you. I'll be fine.
Jax: Yeah. You know Corinthos isn't worth it.
Alexis: Then why did you take his side in this anyway? Why did you tell him that Courtney was with A.J. --
Jax: No, no, no, no. That was about Courtney.
Alexis: So is this. She has put herself in a bad place and Sonny --
Alexis: It's open. He never leaves his door open. Sonny? Sonny? Sonny! Where is he?
Skye: Yes, I think it was best that Edward was out when you called. I think this is going to work out quite well for your company and ours. I'll make sure I get those papers to you first thing tomorrow for your signature. No. Thank you. Bye. Hello, next 30 million.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Jax: Helena's escape is reason for concern.
Gia: Luke and Nikolas will be in here any second, okay?
Helena: Oh --
Zander: How far am I willing to go with you? You're going to have to be more specific.
Sonny: I'm about to make you an offer you can't refuse.
