>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Skye: You just made me sign A.J.'s death warrant.
Jax: Skye, come on, please.
Nikolas: We will not lose anything worth having.
Lucky: Does that include me, brother?
Sonny: You don't trust me? I don't know if I trust you, either.
Luke: Dreadful sorry, Clementine. It's me.
Skye: Hello, Carly.
Nikolas: You're my brother, Lucky. I would never want to lose you.
Lucky: Yeah? Should've thought about that before you lied to me.
Nikolas: Come on, man. It has taken us years to build what we have.
Lucky: And you tore it down, just like that.
Nikolas: No, I -- I did what was best.
Lucky: Gia almost killed Elizabeth in a car accident. You covered it up. I mean, when Elizabeth got out of surgery, you were obviously looking for damage control because you wanted her to remember it the way that you thought she should. If that wasn't enough, you moved us in here to Wyndemere just to make it stick. I mean, we actually thought that it was a friendly gesture.
Nikolas: It was a --
Lucky: I didn’t realize we were going to get used.
Gia: That's not what Nikolas meant, Lucky.
Nikolas: Gia, I can handle this, please.
Lucky: Right, right, you can because you're the powerful prince. Prince Cassadine, the guy who can do anything he wants -- make bribes and threats.
Nikolas: I protected the woman I loved. What do you want from me?
Lucky: What do I want?
Nikolas: Yes, what do you want?
Lucky: I want what Helena took from me, what she stole from me -- Elizabeth and the year that I was locked away from everything.
Nikolas: I wish I had that power, Lucky. Believe me, I do.
Lucky: Do you?
Nikolas: Yes. I'm on your side, all right?
Lucky: I thought you were. But all I see in front of me now is a stranger.
Nikolas: It's still me, man. Nothing's changed.
Lucky: Yeah, yeah, it has! Because the brother that I love would never have let Helena escape!
Luke: Okay. Nice try, darling. Nice try.
Helena: How ever did you recognize me?
Luke: Well, it's a damn good disguise, I'll give you that -- apart, of course, from the $800 Italian stilettos. But, you see, a disguise is only skin deep. The darkness of your soul shines through.
Helena: Oh, you are clever, Luke. Although I shouldn't be surprised. It's always been one of your most appealing qualities.
Luke: Hmm. Thank you. Sorry, but you're fresh out of appealing qualities.
Helena: Well, I suppose it was only inevitable that you would catch up with me.
Luke: I always do.
Helena: Well, at least I tried.
Luke: Yeah, and you're not going anywhere because you don't -- you don't get a chance to try again. You see, I've got you now, and I'm not going to let you go. The only thing left to decide is, what am I going to do with you?
Alexis: Did you make this in my kitchen?
Sonny: Somebody bought you a new espresso machine instead of that piece of junk you used to have.
Alexis: Kristina bought a new one. And if you tell her I said this, I'm going to deny it, but you make better cappuccino than she does.
Sonny: Mrs. Cerullo taught me.
Alexis: Ned's former mother-in-law?
Sonny: Yeah. She taught me how to cook, too.
Alexis: See, that's the thing -- you need to be taught how to cook. You need to be conditioned to use the machinery.
Sonny: A stove?
Alexis: No, the ingredients and the gadgets. And if you do it right, you make a mess. If you don't do it right, like I don't do it right, you create smoke. I didn't have a kitchen, obviously, where I grew up, and I certainly didn't have one in boarding school, so it was the first time that I really ever saw a kitchen when I got my own apartment. Why are you staring at me like that?
Sonny: Well, I'm just thinking that you're the only person I can trust. It's the truth. I mean, you're the only person I can completely trust.
Alexis: Thank you.
Sonny: I mean, there are things I don't discuss. You know, you can't tell somebody too much because then, you know -- I don't know -- you -- you end up getting hurt or they do or --
Sonny: Oh, man. I got a piece of advice once. They said the only way you can stay alive is if you count on -- don't count on anybody but yourself.
Alexis: Yeah. See, I know what you mean about that.
Sonny: Right, but there are exceptions to the rule. I mean, you have stood by me time and time again. You -- you -- you tell me the truth whether I like it or not. Your instincts are good and your advice is sound.
Alexis: Well, thanks for letting me know.
Sonny: And I got to tell you you've earned my trust, and I never thought that that would -- you know, that would happen.
Alexis: I'm glad.
Sonny: I mean it.
Alexis: I feel the same way about you. I mean, I think that we have a -- we've grown to have a unique relationship. And I -- I hope we always have that.
Sonny: So do I.
Skye: Hello, Carly.
Carly: What do you want?
Skye: Three guesses.
Carly: I'm not in the mood to play your games.
Skye: How's business?
Carly: It's very profitable. Thank you for asking.
Skye: Well, you certainly soaked Jax out of quite a sum to get this place up and running.
Carly: Yeah, and he's already seeing a return on his investment.
Skye: Yeah, security is pretty lax, though. Nobody even noticed when I snuck in during lockup. Sonny definitely wouldn't approve.
Carly: What's your point?
Skye: I am impressed with that great kitchen of yours, though. That big walk-in refrigerator? Must be pretty cold. Frightening, too, if suddenly you found yourself locked in, unable to get out. Sort of like swimming in a deep, dark lake.
Carly: Am I supposed to be scared right now?
Skye: I would be if I were you.
Carly: You know what? Don't embarrass yourself by messing with me, Skye.
Skye: You don't get it, do you?
Carly: Oh, I get it, all right. You're a dish it out but can't take it, spoiled, little, rich girl who got everything handed to her on a silver platter, yet you still feel sorry for yourself. No, whatever you get, it's just not good enough.
Skye: While you, of course, have everything that you want -- wonderful friends, the man that you love.
Carly: You know what? I had to dig and claw for everything that I have, and there is no way that you are going to take it from me.
Skye: Don't be naive.
Carly: Excuse me?
Skye: Tougher people than you have tried to take me on and been very sorry they did.
Carly: Bring it on, Skye. I'm more than happy to school you.
Skye: Oh, I'm sure that you could win a cat fight, but not much else.
Carly: You know, you may get what you want, Skye, but you don't know how to keep it because you're too afraid to take chances. You know if you open up you might get hurt, so what do you do? You back off and then you trash it before someone else can. You know what you end up with then? Nothing. No guts, no glory, sweetheart.
Skye: You telling me you have guts? You couldn't even show your face when you locked me in that boat shed.
Carly: It was a prank, okay? Oh, you got locked in a boat shed. Boo-hoo. You know what? If you'd had any sense, you would've realized it wasn't Sonny. The threatening note -- it was written in crayon, for God's sake. Oh, but you panicked. [Mocks Skye] "Oh, they're going to kill me." [Normal voice] So you open up the trap door and you jump into freezing cold water when all you had to do was keep your wits about you and wait it out. Because I came back to unlock the door, but you had already gone dog-paddling in the water. All you could've done is walked out -- no harm, no foul. Although you did get to play victim for Jax. That was good. Although it didn't really last that long or go that far because he wouldn't go along with your scheme. You know, Skye, what you're doing is not really working. You could probably take a few lessons from me.
Skye: You're right.
Carly: Excuse me?
Skye: You're right.
Alexis: This is cold, I think.
Sonny: Well, I'll make you another one.
Alexis: No, no, no, no. That's okay.
Sonny: Alexis, I don't want anything to get in the way of what we got going here. You know what I'm saying?
Alexis: Why would it?
Sonny: So, what was -- why you all --
[Knock on door]
Sonny: What's bothering you?
Alexis: I'm not -- I --
Sonny: Get the --
Alexis: The door.
Jax: Thought I might find you here. We have something to discuss.
Sonny: Jax, can we do it later?
Jax: I'll make it brief. You owe me a favor, so I'm here to collect.
Felicia: Oh, oh! Did you do that on purpose?
Roy: Well, I think I kind of did, yeah.
Felicia: Did you think I was Helena? I think I'm insulted by that.
Roy: I'm sorry. You know, I'm just a little wound up.
Felicia: Yeah, I'll say.
Roy: Yeah? Well, you came on pretty strong there yourself, pal.
Felicia: Well, I'm wound up, too.
Roy: Okay. Well, let's just calm down, shall we? It's Luke we need to worry about.
Felicia: How so?
Roy: Well, he's more wound up than both of us. We need to get to Helena before he does.
Felicia: I'm going to call him on his cell phone.
Roy: Jeepers, Felicia --
Felicia: Could've found her already. I'm sorry.
Roy: That's okay. It was, literally, a breathtaking experience.
Felicia: It's ringing. It's ringing.
Roy: Okay, we better make sure he hasn't done something he'll regret.
Felicia: It's ringing.
Roy: Yeah, okay, let's do it.
Luke: Oh, we don't want anybody disturbing us now.
Helena: Surely we can reach some understanding.
Luke: We already have. I'm going to live. You're going to die.
Helena: Oh, Luke. Now, that is so unimaginative.
Luke: Well, you know, all work and no play has made Luke a very dull boy.
Helena: And you don't believe that. Oh, Luke, you know you'd miss me if I were gone -- our battles, our fascinating entanglements.
Luke: Yeah, I'd miss you -- like a dog with no neck misses licking its tail.
Helena: Think about it, Luke. How would you amuse yourself without me?
Luke: Well, it would be a challenge, but, believe it or not, I do have a couple of other interests.
Helena: Oh. I suppose you're referring to your beloved Laura. She can't replace me -- not deep inside, not where it counts. No, I fill something in you that no one else can. Oh, Luke, you love the game, the chase, the challenge. Laura is woefully predictable.
Luke: I love Laura. I always have. I always will.
Helena: What about the excitement, the risk, the adventure?
Luke: What is all this about?
Helena: I don't follow.
Luke: Yes, you do. You didn't go to all this trouble just to let me catch you so easily.
Helena: Well, maybe you're just too clever for me, Luke.
Luke: Back at that bar, you made a point of letting me see you. Why?
Helena: Oh. Now, that -- that's an odd notion.
Luke: You could've been on a plane to Switzerland or Borneo by now, but instead you hang around Port Charles. And there's only one reason for that. That's so I can catch you. Why? Why?
Nikolas: This is crazy. What do you want? How many different times do I have to prove my loyalty to you?
Lucky: Well, maybe if you didn't use the definition of the word so loosely, brother.
Nikolas: I risked everything I had to go up against Helena, Lucky.
Lucky: And now you're making up for lost time.
Gia: Do you have any idea how self-centered and judgmental you sound? Nikolas has gone to the wall for you, and so have I.
Lucky: And you lied about the accident!
Nikolas: Little hypocritical, don't you think? You've never lied, right? Never? Once?
Elizabeth: Not about stuff like this. We're supposed to trust each other.
Lucky: Yeah, right. I mean, how could Elizabeth and I trust you guys when you let Helena escape?
Nikolas: Listen to me. I would never let Helena hurt you, Elizabeth, or Gia ever again.
Lucky: Nobody can control Helena. As long as she's around, anything can happen!
Nikolas: And as long as I'm around, it won't.
Lucky: Because she told you she wouldn't? Let's get real about this. She almost killed Elizabeth. Who's to say that she won't do it again? She kidnapped me, messed with my mind, almost made me destroy my father. And what about Mom, hmm? What about Mom? Who knows what Helena can dream up in order to hurt her? I mean, you know this stuff, Nikolas. Nobody is safe as long as Helena’s close. Say as close as the Wyndemere tunnels that you wouldn't let my dad and me search.
Nikolas: You did search. You came up with nothing.
Lucky: Only because you stalled us until she could get away.
Gia: Come on, Lucky.
Lucky: Helena gets a charge out of drawing on people's weaknesses. Maybe that's what she did to you. Maybe that's why you turned. But don't sit here and give me some sort of line about how you're our friend. I mean, good, old Nikolas, always looking out for our best interests.
Nikolas: That's right. That's what I do.
Lucky: Why don't you just quit dodging and give me the yes or no. Yes or no -- did you help Helena escape?
Skye: Good night, Carly.
Carly: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Wait, wait -- wait a minute here. You are agreeing with me?
Skye: Don't let it go to your head, okay? You've made some interesting points, as well as surprising me.
Carly: How's that?
Skye: You have all the charm and grace of a female wrestler, Carly, but you have managed to build a rather nice life for yourself. And I'm sure there are some elements to your technique that just might be useful to me.
Carly: Yeah. You can start by deciding what you want and going for it. How you could manage to lose a great guy like Jax is really beyond me --
Skye: Stay off Jax. He's not why I'm here.
Carly: Oh, try again. You hate the fact that he made you tell the truth at the police station.
Skye: Jax might have some ideas on fairness that I find a little hard to grasp, but I can handle it.
Carly: You are starting to wonder if Jax is a little too honest for his own good. You know, maybe -- maybe he did it to protect me. I mean, I don't know. Maybe there is a spark between me and Jax.
Skye: Oh, please.
Carly: What? I mean, he did -- he did, you know, respect me enough to be my business partner. Maybe he wants more. I mean, I am available. Sonny's out of the picture. And -- gosh, I don't know -- the club's going really well. Is that what you're thinking, Skye?
Skye: Not even close.
Carly: Hmm. Because the more I ponder it, you know, Jax -- he's -- he is pretty damn cute and he's probably the most eligible bachelor in this town. But you know what? You and I -- we're both high-maintenance. But at least I'm upfront. Jax may be a little tired of your games. You know what, Skye? You and I are a lot more alike than I care to admit, but maybe we could help each other get what we want because of it.
Sonny: I owe you nothing.
Jax: I got Skye to drop the kidnapping accusations against both you and Carly.
Sonny: Maybe she decided it was unwise to pursue it, Jax.
Jax: No, believe me, she wanted to see you punished.
Sonny: Skye had no evidence!
Jax: She would've lied in a heartbeat if I hadn't stopped her. Now, given your history and Carly's, who do you think the D.A. would've believed?
Sonny: What do you want, Jax?
Jax: I want you to show some restraint.
Sonny: Don't I always?
Jax: Look, there's a small chance that you might find A.J. and Courtney before I do. And if that's the case, I want you to guarantee me that A.J. will be safe.
Sonny: I already made Skye that offer. She turned me down.
Jax: Okay, I'm not making myself clear. This is not a request.
Helena: Luke, I am a sick, tired woman on her way to prison. Now, surely you wouldn't deny me one last fling.
Luke: You didn't answer my question.
Helena: Oh, Luke, you are becoming as mundane as your boring fiancée.
Luke: Why did you let me catch you? What's in this for you?
Helena: Well, perhaps I couldn't resist one final match with my favorite opponent -- watching you jump as I make my moves, anticipating your responses. A theatrical exit setting up the next act -- and the next generation.
Nikolas: Let me guess. You got this idea from Luke, right?
Lucky: No. I was here. I remember how weird you were acting.
Nikolas: You know, I got to tell you, I almost feel sorry for Luke. The man is lost without a Cassadine to blame for every single problem. And when there's not one, he has to invent one. Helena's gone, so he zeros in on me, you know? He's trying to turn our mother against you and me, Lucky. It's an obsession, man.
Lucky: Why don't you just quit avoiding the question? Did you help Helena escape?
Gia: Will you leave Nikolas alone?
Lucky: No, he can speak for himself.
Gia: He loves you, Lucky. You know, I can't believe the way you're turning against him after all he has done for you and Elizabeth.
Lucky: Why don't you just stay out of it, Gia?
Gia: Don't tell me -- don't yell at me like that.
Lucky: No, you almost killed Elizabeth and you pinned it on someone else. Now, your opinion doesn't really hold any weight with me.
Nikolas: Don't ever speak to her that way again.
Elizabeth: Oh, come on, Nikolas. What's he supposed to do, make nice and pretend we're all still great friends?
Nikolas: We are. We are, okay? Nothing's changed.
Lucky: Yes, it has, and you two are the ones who changed it. So why don't you just tell me what happened, Nikolas. Did Helena threaten to tell the truth on you about the accident or did you do that because she was family?
Nikolas: I didn't help Helena escape.
Lucky: You're a liar.
Luke: Let's go.
Helena: No, wait, Luke.
Luke: No, wait for what? You wanted a final act? This is it. The game's over, darling.
Helena: I never thought you'd do this.
Luke: You didn't? Sure, you did. Come on. You've been waiting for this for years.
Helena: No, Luke --
Luke: This game is over.
Helena: No. Luke, there are other ways to end this.
Luke: Not for me, baby.
Helena: No, Luke, look at me. Look at me. I am sick and helpless. Please -- you have nothing to gain and everything to lose if you're caught. Let me go to prison.
Luke: You'd only escape again.
Helena: No. No, they'd guard me too closely.
Luke: No. That'll be the day.
Roy: Luke, you back here yet?
Felicia: Where are you?
Luke: Oh, if it were done, would be better it were done quickly.
Roy: What's going on here?
Luke: We found her, but she was dead.
Nikolas: I've done nothing -- nothing but protect the people I care about.
Lucky: Person. Singular.
Nikolas: No, that includes you and Elizabeth, man.
Lucky: Why does that ring a bell? Oh, yeah, Stavros. Because he would lie about anything -- abuse, murder, whatever. And it looks like to me, brother, you're following in your dear old dad's footsteps.
Nikolas: I get it. When I bend the rules for you and Elizabeth, it's okay. You have no problem with it. But when I do it for Gia, all of a sudden I'm an evil person, right?
Lucky: You can't even see the difference, can you?
Nikolas: I'm not going to stand here and apologize for decisions I've made. I'm not going to do it. So we're going to leave this right where it stands. There was an accident. Elizabeth is -- is doing great. You know, and Courtney’s going to get off with a simple fine and a ticket. End of story. It's over.
Elizabeth: No, Nikolas, I remember the truth, and so does Courtney.
Nikolas: Elizabeth, Elizabeth -- Elizabeth, it's Gia's word against a mobster's sister and an accident victim with a head injury, you know?
Lucky: That's it. I can't believe you just said that. Elizabeth, Sarah, and myself are out of here.
Skye: What makes you think I'd help you do anything?
Carly: Because it works both ways, Skye -- you help me, I help you.
Skye: Why? Can't get what you want on your own?
Carly: You don't know what I want.
Skye: You want what most women want -- power, respect, independence. But underneath --
Skye: Well, we want a man who will love us just the way we are. Hmm. Maybe even because of who we are.
Carly: So this is about Jax.
Skye: I was referring to you and Sonny. Although he seems more than happy to have Alexis fill that void in his life. I saw the way you were looking at those two at the police station. You were practically turning inside out. And to think that you were the cause of that intimate moment. Because of you, Sonny landed in jail, which led him to having to call super Alexis to the rescue in the first place.
Carly: No, you see, actually Sonny pays Alexis to be at the police station with him.
Skye: Jax tells me she's an excellent attorney. He has nothing but the utmost respect for her, which kind of makes me wonder what it is. What makes such a successful, capable woman become a mouthpiece for the mob? Must be the perks. Hmm. Knowing she has Sonny's trust and admiration. Ooh, I bet he really knows how to appreciate her.
Carly: You know what? You don't have the first idea what Sonny appreciates.
Skye: Oh, believe me, I don't want to know. But I did see how grateful he was to Alexis and how he walked out of the room without giving you a glance. Ooh, I could feel the chill across the room.
Carly: You know, Skye, you know that warm and cozy moment of understanding we had? It's gone south now.
Skye: I agree. Which brings us back to the fact that we have absolutely nothing to discuss.
Carly: Wrong. We have A.J. to discuss.
Sonny: First of all, you're not in a position to make demands and you don't tell me how to deal with my family.
Jax: I want your word that A.J. will be safe.
Sonny: Is Courtney going to be safe with A.J.? He's using her, lying to her. He's going to have to deal with the consequences.
Alexis: There are no -- what consequences? There will be no consequences. Why are you here? Don't get involved.
Sonny: Isn't it obvious? Skye Quartermaine tells him to jump, he jumps. Doesn't matter that everything that comes out of her mouth is a lie.
Jax: Look, Skye doesn't want her brother hurt, and neither do I.
Sonny: She had a choice, and she passed.
Jax: Skye doesn't know where her brother is.
Sonny: Oh, right, right, right, yeah.
Jax: Look, I'm going to say this one more time -- you stay away from A.J.
Sonny: If you hadn't wasted my time, you know, getting me arrested for charges you knew wouldn't stick, I'd be with my sister right now.
Jax: Yeah, facing a murder rap.
Sonny: Okay, you know what? That's the end of discussion. I'll do what I want with A.J.
Jax: Not if I find him first.
Carly: Sonny offered you a deal, and you would be wise to take it.
Skye: Clearly you find Mr. Corinthos persuasive. I don’t.
Carly: Wise up and listen because you know my opinion on A.J. and Sonny's is a lot lower than mine. So if you care at all about your brother and him living, then I would -- I'd talk to him and get him to bring Courtney home.
Skye: What's in it for you?
Carly: I don't want Sonny paying for any more of A.J.'s disasters.
Skye: So I'm supposed to take Sonny Corinthos at his word and expect that he won't harm a hair on A.J.’s head?
Carly: Look, if you keep up your end of the bargain, he won't.
Skye: I don't believe you or you ex-husband.
Carly: Surprisingly enough, Sonny and Jax have something in common -- they are both men of their word. So Sonny made you a deal. That means he will honor it no matter what the cost to him. So if you can't get A.J. to bring Courtney back and give up on her, then you know what? I am sure that your imagination can fill in the blanks.
Skye: I'm sure it can.
Carly: So, deal or no deal?
Sonny: Leave this alone, Jax.
Jax: Your solution's unacceptable.
Sonny: Have I ever asked for your opinion?
Jax: I should've known better than to bargain with a man like you. I won't make that mistake again.
Alexis: Jax, this isn't even your problem. Why are you involved?
Jax: Now, I doubt even an attorney of your caliber will be able to convince a jury that Sonny's innocent when they find A.J. dead. Not that I would object to seeing Sonny in prison for the rest of his life, but I really don't want to take Skye to her brother's funeral.
Sonny: I want my sister safe, that's all.
Jax: You know, you're part of the reason she left in the first place. She told me herself that night I caught her in A.J.'s apartment. She said she wanted to get away from you.
Sonny: A.J.'s working her, Jax. Can you understand that?
Jax: You know, maybe Courtney’s perceptive enough to realize that you're a nightmare waiting to happen. So what if you're Courtney’s brother? You still have to earn her trust and loyalty, and so far you've done the exact opposite. In fact, you know what? You would be the last person she would listen to, especially if you've got your hands around A.J.'s throat.
Sonny: A.J. is using Courtney. He wants revenge against me. That's what this whole thing is about. Do you even know what A.J. has done to her, what he may be doing to her right now? Can you stand there and honestly say to me that she will not be hurt physically and emotionally when she comes back?
Sonny: Then stop making demands and don't get in my way on this again!
Nikolas: You want to leave? You know your way to the door.
Lucky: All right. Let's go, Elizabeth. We'll stop by the police station on our way home.
Nikolas: And say what exactly?
Lucky: A little thing they call the truth. Gia caused the accident and you helped Helena escape.
Nikolas: Okay. Go ahead. Go to the police, the press, wherever you want. Whine about how I obstructed justice, abetted a criminal, lied to everyone. You won't be able to prove a thing.
Lucky: We'll see about that.
Nikolas: Yes, we will. You make sure you come at me with all you've got, but be ready for what you get back.
Lucky: Is that a warning?
Nikolas: Most certainly is. No matter what you do, Lucky, I will win.
Lucky: You know, my father's not quite a saint, but he sure knows a Cassadine when he sees one. You just became a credit to your family name.
Nikolas: Spoken like a true Spencer.
Lucky: You better believe it, brother. Let's go.
Roy: Listen to me, Luke. You need to call the police.
Luke: I don't want the police.
Helena: Perhaps you should call your ex-husband, Felicia. Dear Luke seems a bit overwrought this evening.
Luke: Oh, but I'm going to feel a whole lot better soon.
Roy: This is not the answer, man.
Luke: Sure, it is. There is no way I'm going to let this woman suck victory out of defeat again, not when have the power to stop her!
Roy: It will be her victory if you kill her. You've already won. You found her. You caught her.
Luke: It's not enough!
Roy: I'm sure it doesn't feel like enough after she's hurt your family the way she has, and you want to protect them. We get that. Luke, nothing justifies murder. No amount of anger, need for revenge, not even thinking you're protecting other people.
Luke: Look, I don't want to hear this, okay? Just stop talking.
Felicia: Listen to him. He's on your side.
Roy: Think about what's ahead. Think about Laura.
Luke: I am thinking about Laura. I'm going to do this so we'll be free.
Roy: What are your chances of getting away with it? Felicia and I could walk out of here, it wouldn't matter. They'll find Helena’s body. The police will come after you and catch you one way or another. You'll be giving her what she wants. Why do you think she let you find her, man? This is it -- ultimate revenge. You want to give her the satisfaction, the pleasure of knowing that she finally brought you down?
Luke: Take her.
Roy: Thank you.
Felicia: Oh, God. You did the right thing. It's over.
Luke: No, it's not over. Not yet. Not yet.
Nikolas: Hey. Thank you.
Gia: You know, Lucky and Elizabeth didn't even bother to take their stuff. So maybe that means they'll be back. Lucky is probably just angry and he and Elizabeth need to sleep it off. And when they wake up, they'll realize that you did what you thought was right and they'll change their minds.
Nikolas: No, no, no. There's no turning back.
Gia: Don't say that.
Nikolas: I saw the look in his eye, Gia. It's the same one I used to see in Luke’s.
Gia: You and Lucky have gotten through so much in the past.
Nikolas: This is -- this is different.
Gia: Just give it time.
Nikolas: Doesn't matter. You know that it doesn't. I'm not sorry for what I've done. I protected you and I always will, no matter what.
Gia: But if Lucky goes to the police --
Nikolas: They're not going to be able to prove anything, okay?
Gia: And what about Helena?
Nikolas: I just want this over, Gia.
Gia: Hello? When? Where? Yeah, all right. Thanks for letting us know, Marcus. They've caught Helena. So does that mean they caught us, too?
Helena: It appears to be your victory.
Luke: Helena, what they say -- appearances ain't everything.
Roy: It's better this way, man.
Luke: I don't think so. Let's pull the car around and follow them. Until she's locked up, this was just too easy. I don't trust anybody.
Skye: No deal.
Carly: You're making a mistake.
Skye: Sonny doesn't keep his word; I'll be risking A.J.'S life.
Carly: I told you Sonny always keeps his word.
Skye: And you're the ex-wife who will do anything to keep in Sonny's good graces, which kind of makes you a little less than a reliable source.
Carly: I warned you.
Skye: And one good warning deserves another. See, you caused me a lot of trouble, not to mention almost killing me with that stupid prank of yours. But I'm really good at holding a grudge. So when I decide to make my move, I promise you, you won't see it coming.
Sonny: Thanks for standing by.
Alexis: I'll always stand by you doing anything legal.
Sonny: Well, who said I was doing anything illegal?
Alexis: Which is why I'm standing by you.
Sonny: I should probably give you a raise.
Alexis: Money can't buy trust.
Sonny: I mean, you know -- you know how I feel about you, and you make it easy. Talking to Jax is like hitting a brick wall.
Alexis: Ah -- you're talking about my friend. Maybe we should go to sleep and talk about it tomorrow.
Sonny: All right.
Sonny: You know, Jax is a friend of yours.
Sonny: He respects you.
Alexis: Yeah, what's your point?
Sonny: Well, I got a general idea where A.J.'s hiding out, and I'm not going to stop this time. So if Jax keeps pursuing it, then -- it's not a good thing.
Jax: Put the word out on A.J. Quartermaine. He's with a young girl named Courtney Matthews. I want every contact in the Caribbean beating the bushes for information. As soon as you have something, you call me and make arrangements for me to get there immediately.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Kristina: It's Nikolas.
Alexis: What has he done?
Kristina: It's awful.
Scott: Your tax-evading brother has found Helena.
Laura: Where are they now?
Felicia: They were on their way to the PCPD.
Lucky: This is not just another family spat, Commissioner. Ask her how Nikolas helped her escape. He's a criminal, and I want him arrested.
