>> Previously on "General hospital" --
Jax: A.J. is deliberately exploiting the sister of a dangerous man. He knew what he was doing. A.J.'s fate is no concern of mine.
Laura: Why don't you want them to go in the tunnel?
Luke: Let's check it out.
Nikolas: No, stop, you guys.
Alexis: I think you're also mad at me because I'm in love with a man you can't stand!
Luke: Why don't you want me in the tunnel, Nik?
Nikolas: There's no way Helena would show up here at Wyndemere. You know? We're more vulnerable at your house.
Laura: But Mac has a patrol man stationed there.
Lucky: Helena would come to Wyndemere because she needs money to get out of the country.
Nikolas: And there's no way I would give it to her and she knows that. There's no way to steal it. I've changed the combinations on all the safes.
Luke: But she doesn't know that, does she? Come on, let's go.
Lucky: All right.
Luke: Stay here with the ladies.
Bobbie: Carly, I have called you everywhere. So when you get this message, would you please just call me back? Call me on my cell, okay, because -- oh, hi, come on in -- Scott and I are going to your club tonight, okay? So if I don't see you there, I'm going to assume that Helena has kidnapped you.
Bobbie: Now, you're probably perfectly safe, so I need you to please just call me and tell me that. I love you. Good-bye.
Scott: No, you're not really afraid that Helena’s going to go after Carly, are you?
Bobbie: Well, you know, it is possible. The woman hates Spencers.
Scott: But Carly’s got a brain. She's also got the police department behind her, and she's got your brother, the self-appointed crime fighter, too. So, you know, I don't think Helena’s going to stop along the way and grab your daughter.
Bobbie: Yeah, I know, but, you know, a mother does like to know her children are safe. I should think you'd be able to sympathize with that.
Scott: Yeah, well, you know, I did call Lee and Gail and tell them to get Serena out of town.
Bobbie: Ah, ha-ha.
Scott: Well, just until, you know, Helena’s --
Bobbie: Yeah, I know. So, even though, you know, Serena is probably not in any danger, you just want to be sure, right?
Scott: That's right.
Bobbie: Right. Well, so, that's how I feel about Carly.
Scott: I know, but Carly can, you know, kind of protect herself. I think it's the world that has to watch out for Carly.
Bobbie: What is this about? Oh, oh, I get it. This is about you representing A.J. Scott, look, I would never try to influence who you take on as a client, but I support Carly. And I understand why she doesn't want Michael around him. And I may not agree with the way she's gone about it, but, hey, didn't you and I both agree -- just now -- that a parent has a right to protect their children?
Scott: Yeah, but, look, Bobbie, I don't -- whoa -- let me get that for you there. I don't think we should argue about anything because you know what? We're supposed to go out and have a good time. If we start arguing, then that would blow our good time. So, you know, let's just do that. Or do you want to stay here with the doors locked?
Bobbie: No. You know what? I do -- I want to go out with you and I want to have a good time. So let's just pick a neutral topic, like that case you're working on -- you know, with that hockey player.
Scott: Oh, André the affronter, right. Ever since he was forced to take that anger management class, you know, his game's gone right downhill, you know, and now he spends like maybe 10 minutes in the penalty box.
Skye: Excuse me. Sorry to bother you. I'm looking for Jax. Are you expecting him?
Carly: Oh, Skye, why don't you come in and sit down?
Skye: Is Jax somewhere in the club this evening?
Carly: Gosh, you know that music -- it is so distracting, sometimes I can't even hear myself think.
Skye: Simple question, Carly. Your financial backer, Jasper Jacks, is he here?
Carly: No, Jax hasn't stopped by the club yet tonight. But since you're here, we can discuss A.J. and where he's taken Courtney.
Skye: You know, Sonny already tried strong-arming me tonight, and it didn't work, so please, just get out of my -- Carly, I don't have time for this.
Carly: Well, make time, because you mess with Sonny, you mess with me.
Alexis: You hungry?
Sonny: What would you do if I were?
Alexis: Order in. Would you like me to warm you some milk?
Sonny: You know how to make milk?
Alexis: I was hoping you did. What do you want? You want me to put you to bed?
Sonny: You're going to take me to bed?
Alexis: "Put" -- I asked if you wanted me to "put" you to bed.
Sonny: Oh. Oh, "put." What do I look like, a 2-year-old? I don't need you to take care of me, Alexis. You know, maybe just in the legal sense.
Alexis: I was being sarcastic.
Alexis: And speaking of a legal sense --
Alexis: I'm advising you to get some sleep because you need adequate rest to make a rational decision, and I'm --
Alexis: Emphasizing the word "rational" because a man that you hate has taken your 20-year-old sister out of the country.
Sonny: I'll find him.
Alexis: I'm sure you will. It's what you do when you find them that concern me.
Sonny: I'll bring Courtney home.
Alexis: What if Courtney doesn't want to come home, and what if A.J. has other plans?
Sonny: A.J. won’t be in a position to object to anything.
Alexis: I know -- see, yeah. That is because you're exhausted and a little bit drunk.
Alexis: Which is why I can disregard what any other reasonable person would have interpreted as a threat against A.J.’s life.
Sonny: Things usually end up working the way I want them to, and if they don't, I deal. Either way, it's my problem, not yours. Feel free to bill me for this. But the problem is, I think you're wasting my time and yours.
Alexis: So you would rather that I just go across the hall and let you drink yourself into a bigger stopper?
Alexis: No problem.
Sonny: All right.
Alexis: Although, I have one --
Sonny: What now?
Alexis: Intoxication is not an acceptable defense for criminal behavior.
Sonny: Right. Well, who says I'm going to break the law?
Alexis: Well, if you're not, then you should want to hear your legal options in this situation. That way, I can swear in court that, to the best of my knowledge, you had every intention of working out your situation with A.J. in a legal manner.
Sonny: Alexis, if you want to just stay here, why didn't you just say so? Come here.
Laura: Gia, don't worry. Helena will be caught.
Gia: This whole thing is just creeping me out.
Laura: Helena has that effect on people. But like you said, she's not going to show up here because nobody at Spoon Island would help her. And she's not the same person anymore, anyway. She's sick and she's old, and her days of hurting our family are over.
Nikolas: Which family would that be, the Spencers or the Cassadines?
Laura: Nikolas, you're my son. We'll always be family.
Nikolas: Well, I know that, but sometimes I feel like I have to prove that I'm the good Cassadine.
Laura: But you don’t.
Nikolas: I know. I know. I'm sorry. You're right, okay?
Laura: I'm sorry, too. I hope I haven't done something to make you feel that way. When I talk about my family, I'm talking about you.
Monica: You helped A.J. escape the hospital in a helicopter with Sonny's sister? May I ask, what were you thinking?
Edward: A.J. thought this up? Well, finally some backbone. And I think it even shows a little flair.
Monica: And what happens when Sonny catches up to him? Going to happen? Because it damn well will!
Alan: A.J.'s trying to turn his life around.
Monica: He's not going to have a life!
Alan: She already has made a difference in his life.
Monica: A.J. is going to meet with some terrible tragedy that is all Sonny's doing.
Ned: Or he'll do what he always does, which is buckle under the pressure and become the family drunk again.
Alan: That's not fair.
Ned: Well, think about it. It's been his pattern his entire life. He was going to, what, take over the Charles Street Foundation?
Ned: He was going to run E.L.Q. He was going to marry Jason’s girlfriend. But in the end, he always screwed up and turned right back to the bottle.
Alan: You know, with this kind of family support, it's not at all --
Edward: You know, I suppose it's too much to hope for, but I really hope that A.J. can actually pull this off. It's about time somebody stood up to Corinthos. Fitting retribution for the way he took little Michael from us.
Ned: Okay, Grandfather. Let's entertain the possibility that A.J. actually knows what he's doing. He deliberately seduced the 20-year-old sister of his mortal enemy. Now, how do you think Sonny's going to react? Do you think he's just going to shrug his shoulders and wish them well? Or do you think this career criminal will actually retaliate in ways that might very well be extremely hazardous to Junior's health?
Monica: How much does Skye have to do with all of this?
Skye: I assure you, I'm not messing with Sonny. Careful, though. Your insecurities are showing.
Carly: Okay, don't pretend you don't know what I'm talking about. A.J. doesn’t have the guts to go after Sonny's sister on his own.
Skye: Well, apparently, he did.
Carly: Skye, we are talking about a 20-year-old girl here. Okay -- just put aside your past list of grievances and put yourself in her shoes, okay? She grew up without a father and she has a mother whose only interest is in money --
Skye: And a long-lost brother who makes anyone who disagrees with him disappears or kidnaps them and terrorizes them into submission. You know what? I do feel sorry for that girl. Someone should rescue her.
Carly: You know what, Skye? You know the way of the world and so do I. But Courtney still believes in Prince Charming -- somebody who will love her, even if she's from the wrong part of town. And someone who will forgive her if she screws up and doesn't put strings on love. Courtney is in way over her head. She doesn't even know it. She's about to get her life screwed up royally. And why don't you think about the first time that happened to you and how your life might be different if somebody had cared enough to save you from that. Come on, Skye, let's just shock everyone and just do the right thing because it's the right thing to do.
Skye: Thank you for that "opera" moment, but I have no intention of saying one word to you about my brother.
Carly: Where the hell did A.J. take Courtney?
Skye: I don't know. But if I did, I sure wouldn't tell you.
Carly: Skye, did you even have any children? No, you don’t. You are defending a baby killer, a drunk --
Skye: Oh! Wait a minute. What happened to this being about poor, innocent Courtney? The only reason you want to get her back is so that Sonny will pat you on the head and maybe consider taking you back as his wife.
Carly: You know, A.J. is the only one who can stand you. I don't understand why you're not trying harder to save him from himself.
Skye: I am saving A.J. -- by keeping him from going anywhere near your psychotic ex-husband.
[Knock on door]
Bobbie: Carly, you all right?
Scott: We just want to make sure that Helena doesn't have a knife to your throat.
Skye: You're nothing, Carly. You're nothing but a mobster's ex, so there's nothing you can do to me. Nothing.
Bobbie: What was that about?
Carly: Hmm -- Skye just being her snaky self.
Bobbie: All right, well, forget about her. I'm worried about you. Did you get all my messages?
Carly: Yeah, Helena escaped, lock your doors, and lock your windows.
Scott: You know, this is no joke because the Spencers are a favorite target of the Cassadines -- even Spencers that are married to tiny mobsters.
Carly: Okay, can you explain to me one more time why you are dating A.J.’s attorney?
Bobbie: Why don't you tell me what's got you so upset?
Sonny: Whew. It's kind of sweet that you're worried about me.
Alexis: I'm just trying to save myself a lot of work.
Sonny: You like work.
Alexis: True. But I don't like defending violent felons, and I think that I made that clear to you when I first took you on as a client.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah, you did, yeah. But that's cool because I'm not, you know -- I'm a very nonviolent person.
Alexis: Really? Well, the fact that A.J. Quartermaine happens --
Sonny: Okay, you know, forget -- I don't want to hear A.J. You don't want to hear him. I don't want to hear about him. Let's just not talk about him.
[Knock on door]
Sonny: Could you please get that because I can't --
Sonny: All right.
Mike: Listen, Courtney is not at the hospital and she's not at her mother's place. I mean, do you have any idea where she is?
Sonny: Yeah, I'll tell you where she is. She's flying on a helicopter right now with A.J. Quartermaine because you couldn't lie to her. But, see, A.J., he lies all the time, so he took her -- you know how he took her? By telling her it's a vacation. But you couldn't warn her. You couldn't protect her because you had your first ever crisis of conscious. You said you wanted to be a father. You said you wanted to protect your daughter. What happened, huh? What happened?
Mike: I'm sorry --
Sonny: I'm tired of hearing "I'm sorry"! After the fact! After the damage is done! I'll show you sorry! I'll show you sorry!
Laura: How long have they been in there?
Luke: Well, there's good news and bad news and they're both "Helena’s not in there."
Laura: Well, you know what? I'm sure the authorities will probably catch her at the border. And you know what? I have to get home and see my mom and Lulu.
Luke: Oh. I'll go with you.
Laura: All right.
Lucky: I'll walk you guys to the launch.
Nikolas: Yeah, listen, call if you hear anything, okay?
Luke: You, too, Nikolas.
Nikolas: All right. See you, guys.
Nikolas: So, you all right?
Gia: Better now.
Nikolas: I got the feeling that you thought they'd find Helena in there.
Gia: Well, your grandmother's capable of anything. But I guess if she really loved you, that she wouldn't come here.
Nikolas: Helena loves herself too much, Gia. She would be here in a heartbeat if she thought she could find someone to finance her escape. Listen, I'm in on this with you -- all the way, no matter what Helena does. That's how we will survive.
Gia: Well, Laura’s probably right. I mean, Helena is probably at the border by now, and Luke would never have left if he thought that she would come here.
Gia: Never a dull moment in your family, huh?
Nikolas: I just remembered I needed to give my mother something.
Gia: Give her what?
Nikolas: A financial report. She's thinking about switching her European distributors for Deception. She wanted me to have my attorneys research her new company for her. So, I'll be right back.
Monica: Well, this plan to get to Sonny through his sister has Skye written all over it.
Alan: Skye had nothing to do with it. I doubt she even knows that he's gone.
Edward: Well, she knew that he was hiding the girl from Sonny. I think you're right, Monica. This scheme of Skye’s is to provoke Sonny into doing her dirty work for her, hmm?
Alan: A.J. has real feelings for her.
Ned: Oh, he's got real feelings, all right -- to get back at Sonny.
Edward: And Sonny did the same thing to Jason and to Emily. They turned away from us because he painted himself as a very sympathetic friend. Now, there's nothing wrong with A.J. using some of Sonny's tactics back on him. Oh, turnabout's fair play as far as I'm concerned.
Ned: So Courtney deserves whatever happens to her because of who her brother is?
Edward: Well --
Ned: That doesn't sound like fair play to me.
Alan: He genuinely cares for her, and she wanted to go with him.
Monica: You asked her?
Ned: Emily wanted to go wherever Zander was, and he was a drug dealer, a kidnapper, and an accessory to murder.
Alan: A.J. is not a criminal.
Ned: D.U.I., blackmail, and arson -- do you want me to go on?
Alan: Is it so impossible for you to believe that A.J. has found someone that he really cares about? Someone that really makes him happy?
Ned: No one would rather see Junior do something right than me. But this ain't it.
Monica: Alan, A.J.'s life is at stake. Isn't that getting through to you? He can't come back to this house. My God, we lost Jason to Sonny. Now we're losing A.J. What possessed you to encourage him to do something so rash, so --
Edward: So inspired.
Ned: So insane.
Alan: I'll tell you why. Because I spoke to Courtney just for a very short time, and I realized that she's a very special person, and she sees the best in A.J. and I think that A.J. has a real chance with her. And after everything that A.J. has been through, everything that this family has put him through -- including me -- I think he deserves a shot at happiness. That's why I arranged for the helicopter. That's why I created the diversion. He does deserve a chance. When I looked in his eyes, what I saw was --
Skye: A man who was totally conning you, Dad. And you fell for it hook, line, and sinker.
Mike: You can't have it both ways, Michael. You can't hate me for lying to you, and then turn around and attack me for telling your sister the truth. Which way do you want it?
Sonny: I just want Courtney safe and away from A.J.
Mike: That's the same thing I want.
Sonny: You got a strange way of showing it, Mike.
Mike: I'm doing the best I can. But you -- you just can't give anybody credit for that, can you? Including yourself.
Alexis: That wasn't violent at all. In fact, I think you're a real pacifist. Why don't you pour yourself another drink?
Sonny: You want me to sleep, don't you? It's the only way I can -- unless I'm near the ocean -- I can just swim until I get tired.
Alexis: Why don't you just go upstairs, get in your bed, lie down, close your eyes, and sleep, like a reasonable person?
Sonny: I got a better idea. Why don't you put me to bed?
Skye: I came by here to see how A.J. and Courtney managed to get out of the hospital past Sonny's men, and you're telling me that you helped them? I've already had a visit from Sonny. He's out for blood.
Alan: Well, just as well that A.J.’s leaving town.
Ned: How far do you think he'll get traveling with Sonny's sister?
Alan: Look, A.J. told me that he loves Courtney. Why do you think he's lying?
Skye: Because he's been trying to seduce Courtney ever since he found out that she's Sonny's sister.
Monica: You knew what he intended to do and yet you didn't do --
Skye: Actually, no. He stopped filling me in around the time that he was hospitalized.
Ned: So A.J.’s interest in Courtney has nothing to do with real feelings?
Alan: A.J. befriended Courtney to start with just to get back at Sonny, but then his feelings changed. He truly cares for her.
Skye: A.J. wants Michael back. He wants to humiliate Sonny, to hurt him the way A.J.'s been hurt. Courtney makes all of that possible. Of course she's the center of his world. But it's not about love or romance. It's only about revenge.
Edward: Why are you suddenly so forthcoming about A.J.’s plans?
Skye: I hardly think it's a secret considering he's fled the country.
Monica: Did you know that A.J. hid Courtney in his apartment?
Monica: And did it ever occur to you what Sonny would do when he found out?
Skye: I told A.J. every day that this wasn't going to end well.
Monica: And when he didn't listen to you, why didn't you come and tell me?
Skye: Based on what, exactly -- the kindness and the empathy you've shown me?
Monica: I'm his mother, Skye! I could've talked him out of it!
Ned: Okay. Do you have any idea where Junior is now?
Skye: I wasn't in on the great helicopter escape. But I made it clear to A.J. several days ago that I did not approve of what he was doing to Courtney.
Alan: I can't believe that A.J. has lied to me again.
Ned: This is going to be messy.
Edward: Well, A.J.'s disasters usually are.
Alan: I will never trust him.
Skye: Will all of you stop running A.J. down? If anyone's to blame here, it's all of you.
Carly: Look, I called Benny as soon as I got your message, and he told me he would put a guard on Leticia and Michael and they'd be there 24/7, so they are safe from Helena.
Bobbie: Why not speak directly to Sonny?
Scott: Wait a second, Bobbie. This is the first time Carly has shown the sense God gave a goose to stay away from Corinthos. She should be saluted for that.
Carly: Okay, the next time you insult my little boy's father, I will have a bouncer come and throw you out.
Bobbie: Okay, time-out. Take a break.
Bobbie: Would you give us a few minutes?
Scott: I'll be in the bar downing zombies.
Bobbie: Could you try a little harder to get along with Scott?
Carly: I'm sorry, but I don't have time for idiot management at the moment.
Bobbie: Okay, now, that's enough, all right? You were upset when I walked in here and it didn't have anything to do with Scott, so what's going on?
Carly: Skye Quartermaine is a snake. That's what's going on.
Bobbie: From what I've heard, I am inclined to agree with you, but has she done something to you specifically?
Carly: Look, A.J. went off with Courtney, okay? He snuck out of the hospital with her and had a helicopter waiting on the roof.
Bobbie: Yeah, well, that's between Sonny and A.J. doesn’t have anything to do with you and Skye.
Carly: No, Skye is A.J.'s accomplice. The little weasel tells her everything, all the plans, and now she knows. She knows where A.J.'s taken Courtney and she's not going to do anything --
Bobbie: But, Carly, this is not your fight.
Carly: Mom, the only reason A.J. is doing any of this is because I won't let him near Michael.
Bobbie: Let Sonny deal with it. You have a club to run.
Carly: You know what? The little witch thinks I can't do anything. Watch me.
Bobbie: Where are you going?
Alexis: Is this your bedroom?
Alexis: Great. Go to bed.
Sonny: Aren't you going to help me out?
Alexis: I didn't realize that you were incapacitated.
Sonny: Check it out. Check it out. Go ahead.
Alexis: It's very nice.
Sonny: Check it out! Take a walk. Go in there, look at it.
Alexis: It's very nice.
Sonny: What do you think?
Alexis: It's -- big.
Alexis: What, do you expect me to carry you in?
Sonny: No, I think I can make it to the bed. Unless you want to help me get undressed.
Alexis: No. I mean -- I -- I think you're perfectly capable of doing that all by yourself.
Sonny: Well, that depends on the circumstances because sometimes I'm slow and careful. Other times, I just get reckless, you know what I'm saying?
Alexis: Okay, yeah. Uh-huh.
Sonny: Well, you don't have to walk away -- I'm not --
Alexis: I wasn't walking away. I was just walking. I just felt like walking for -- I did -- never mind.
Sonny: Good. All right. Oh, man.
Sonny: What now?
Alexis: Lie down -- you lie down, alone on your bed and close your eyes.
Sonny: I'd like to actually look.
Alexis: Wait, you can't do that and sleep. I see you have black satin sheets.
Sonny: Yeah. They're great for sex.
Alexis: I'm sure they are. Just close your eyes, okay, and just --
Sonny: You should try satin, you know what I mean?
Alexis: I will. Next time I go to the linen store, I will --
Sonny: There's nothing better than satin sheets, I got to tell you, when you're, like, laying under them, you know?
Alexis: Close your eyes and go to sleep! And just go to sleep.
Alexis: Oh, God.
Skye: Complain all you want. I think A.J. serves a very necessary function in this family -- he makes you all feel superior.
Monica: Well, thank you for sharing, Skye. Now leave.
Skye: Well, that's certainly your answer to everything, isn't it, Monica? When in doubt, throw the person out of your house. Let me ask you something -- why do you think it is that A.J. and I actually have a relationship and you don't? When's the last time you actually called him, hmm? Anyone? Maybe if this family had actually given a damn, we would've maybe --
Edward: Oh, here we go. The same old sob story again. Oh.
Skye: You know, I wouldn't really ever expect you to sympathize, but I actually understand why A.J.’s doing this.
Ned: He's crazy.
Alan: He's bitter.
Skye: He is trying to prove himself to you. You -- you dismiss him. You call him junior. You've treated him like a loser his whole life. Well, he's going to hold this up as proof that he is a bona fide Quartermaine, to prove that he can score the big win no matter what the cost, to prove that he cares about his son more than you do. And maybe you'll look at him with the same kind of -- well, if not love, the same kind of respect you reserve for Jason. Well, I'll tell you -- after this, one thing's for certain -- no one's going to be able to dismiss A.J. ever again.
Laura: What are you thinking, Luke?
Luke: I'm thinking that Gia is lying and that Nikolas is going out of his way to cover for her.
Laura: Well, you're not suggesting that Nikolas and Gia are hiding Helena over there, are you?
Luke: Don't you think it was a little peculiar he didn't want me going into the tunnel?
Laura: But he didn't do anything to stop you from going in, either.
Luke: Something's up, darling. Something's up.
Nikolas: Ah, damn it! Gia!
Lucky: You know, you can't keep leaving that thing open with Helena on the loose.
Lucky: Hey -- it was a joke. You need to calm down, all right? Being nervous is only going to help Helena.
Nikolas: Fine. Did you check the grounds on your way back up the pier?
Lucky: Yeah, I did. Helena's not around.
Nikolas: Well, then so far, so good, I guess.
Lucky: Huh. You really think she's going to show up here?
Nikolas: Well, she's unpredictable, isn't she?
Lucky: Yeah. You know, I got the feeling that you really didn't want my dad and me searching that tunnel.
Nikolas: Gina’s acting strange, don't you think?
Lucky: Strange? Strange how?
Nikolas: I don't know, Lucky. Just -- she's strange.
Lucky: Nikolas, I want you to know that I got your back, man. We've gone through too much, we've gone too far to let Helena get to us like this. Now I'm going to go check on Elizabeth and Sarah.
Nikolas: All right.
Lucky: Where's Gia?
Nikolas: Maybe getting ready for bed. I don't know.
Lucky: Don't let Helena get to you. You're better than that.
Nikolas: Thank you.
Gia: Helena? Helena, are you in here?
Young Sonny: Let met out! Let me out!
Adele: Dike, no! No!
Young Sonny: Let her alone!
Deke: Shut up, you little brat! Get in there!
Adele: Don't touch me! No!
Young Sonny: Stop hurting her! Stop it!
Sonny: I'll kill you if you hurt her!
Courtney: No, don't touch me!
Sonny: Stop it!
Courtney: A.J., please don't do this! I'm sorry! Whatever I did, I'm sorry!
Alexis: Are you all right?
Gia: Helena? Helena?
Helena: I assume you brought the money?
Gia: You know, it's bad enough for you to threaten to frame your own grandson, but you almost got yourself caught back there with Luke and Lucky.
Helena: I so enjoy listening to you babble on.
Gia: There. I got you what you wanted. Now it's over.
Nikolas: Not quite.
Laura: I thought you trusted Nikolas, Luke. I mean, where is all of this coming from?
Luke: It's coming from watching Gia do a lot of tap-dancing to avoid the fact that she was lying and it's coming from this queasy feeling I got that something ain't right.
Laura: But Nikolas wouldn't do anything to help Helena.
Luke: Well, then that's what I'll find out when I take that little rowboat and row back over to Wyndemere.
Scott: Where's Carly?
Bobbie: She left.
Bobbie: Oh, Scott, this is not a good situation because I know my daughter and she's headed for trouble.
Scott: Well, did you try and call her on your phone?
Bobbie: Yeah. She's not answering.
Scott: Ah. Well, did you find out what the beef was with Skye?
Bobbie: Yeah. Carly's trying to find out where A.J. took Sonny's sister Courtney, you know. They disappeared from the hospital in a helicopter.
Scott: Ah. Oh, remind me to send my bill to A.J., you know? I mean, if he's going to commit suicide, I could think of a few better ways.
Bobbie: I'm just so worried about Carly. I've had a bad feeling about all of this since the night this club opened. Yeah, we really thought that this whole thing was going to be a wonderful opportunity for her to start a whole new life and instead, A.J. has to turn around and use it as an excuse to goad Sonny by showing up with Courtney and -- Carly was doing so well, just breaking away from Sonny and all that negativity and all that turmoil, and now I feel like she's getting suckered right back in and I'm worried about what it's going to do to her.
Alexis: You -- ahem -- had a nightmare, huh?
Sonny: Yep. I get them sometimes.
Alexis: Would it help you to tell me about it?
Sonny: No, it only really helps to -- to drink or swim, you know? Talking doesn't really -- doesn't do much.
Alexis: I think maybe you're right. Sometimes naming things -- defining them, analyzing them, rationalizing them -- is basically pointless. Sometimes you just feel what you feel.
Skye’s voice: A.J. cares more about his son than you do. You -- you dismiss him. You call him Junior. A.J.'s trying to prove himself to you so you'll look at him with the same kind of -- well, if not love, at least the same respect you reserve for Jason.
Monica: Skye is right. If we had been more supportive of A.J., he never would have gone after Sonny.
Skye: Help! Help! Who are you? Why are you doing this?
[Skye bangs on the door]
>> On the next "General hospital" --
Alexis: It's going to come back to haunt you.
Sonny: Do you want me to stop the search?
Skye: You're going to be very sorry!
Carly: I finally shut Skye’s mouth, that smug little witch.
Luke: I do believe Nikolas is helping Helena.
Gia: Nikolas, I can explain.
