>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Laura: I cannot go to Lucky for you.
Nikolas: I don't understand it. You're my mother. Why can't you do that for me?
Laura: You lied to me.
Lucky: He needs to pay for what he did. So does Gia.
Elizabeth: Just let it be over.
Monica: Where are you, A.J.?
A.J.: In a good place, and I intend to stay here.
Ned: If we work together, maybe we can put a stop to this.
Jax: I'm going to say this one more time. You stay away from A.J.
Lesley: I have all the ribbons out in the kitchen. Let's get this part done.
Luke: Good morning.
Lesley Lu: Daddy, did you and Mommy get married?
Luke: No, not yet, cupcake.
Lesley Lu: But you went to sleep with Mommy. That means you're married, doesn't it?
Luke: Uh -- no -- not technically. Well -- you know when you have a sleepover and -- and you guys have a slumber party, and you sort of sleep in a little pile?
Lesley Lu: So you and Mommy had a sleepover?
Luke: Yeah, sort of like that.
Laura: Actually, Lulu, once you're married, you're sort of always married.
Luke: It's a state of mind.
Lesley Lu: A what?
Luke: Your mother will explain that, I'm sure. Go right ahead.
Lesley Lu: Do I still get to be the flower girl?
Laura: Of course you can, honey.
Nikolas: Wow. Good morning.
Nikolas: You look gorgeous, as always.
Gia: And you say all the right things, as always. Are we expecting guests?
Nikolas: No, it's -- it's just us.
Gia: Wow. Waffles, omelettes, fruit --
Nikolas: I wasn't sure what you wanted, so I had the chef prepare a little bit of everything, as you can see.
Gia: Yeah. And what's the occasion?
Nikolas: Well, I had something in mind, if you're willing.
Gia: Try me.
Nikolas: I want to take you on a trip. The jet can be ready this afternoon.
Gia: And where would we go?
Nikolas: Well, the clues are right here. Pineapples, orchids --
Nikolas: That's right. The newest resort in Kauai. Come on. Private cottages. White, sandy beach. Golf, which I --
Nikolas: I love. Four-star restaurant --
Gia: That sounds fabulous.
Nikolas: It sure does, doesn't it? Only the best for the most wonderful fiancée in the world. What do you say?
Gia: You're leading up to something, aren't you?
Nikolas: Well, Kauai is the most beautiful place for a wedding. So, Gia Campbell, will you marry me tonight, please?
Nikolas: Why not? You and me, under the stars.
Gia: Well, what about our families?
Nikolas: I have none, so it's just -- it's you and me. Right?
Taggert: Gia has family, and we're not walking away from her.
Sonny: Ellos estan a veinte millas de la Republica Dominicana. Eso cubre mucho territorio. No, necesito mas informacion. Okay, llamame de nuevo.
Alexis: A.J.'s gone to a great deal of trouble to cover his tracks.
Sonny: Well, you know what? I'd have Courtney home by now if Jax hadn't had me arrested, you know, to impress his girlfriend.
Alexis: Speaking of Jax, I'm filing a brief that'll stave off the wrecking ball. You'll be able to keep your warehouse.
Sonny: Why can't Jax just stick to bribing the city council instead of trying to tell me not to deal with A.J.?
Alexis: You know, in these circumstances, I happen to think Jax is right.
Jax: Good morning, Ms. Chandler-Quartermaine.
Skye: Well, I suppose you expect me to just gaze up at that smile and melt and -- like some ice cream that's been left out in the sun. Well, I got news for you. I haven't forgotten that you sided with Carly and Sonny against me and A.J., and, well, I don't intend to forget anytime soon. And the fact that we spent one, isolated evening together -- that doesn't change things one bit.
Jax: I really missed you last night.
Skye: So you kiss me and I'm supposed to forget that A.J.'S in danger because of you?
Jax: Come on, Skye. Sonny didn't lock you in that boat shed. Okay? I want to see him pay for his crimes as much as you do, but perjuring yourself is not a solution.
Skye: A.J. may die because of your misplaced ethics.
Jax: There's a chance that Sonny won't hurt A.J.
Skye: Oh, please.
Jax: Well, he had his chance when A.J. caused Carly's miscarriage, and he didn't do anything about it then, so --
Skye: Well, maybe the perfect opportunity didn't present itself. This time he'll make sure it does.
Jax: You know, Sonny's a lot of things, but stupid isn't one of them. There's a method to his madness. He doesn't act in the heat of the moment.
Skye: So, what are you saying? A.J. should be worried two years from now?
Skye: Well, how reassuring.
Jax: Look, if A.J. deliberately keeps antagonizing Sonny, then --
Skye: Anything can happen and probably will.
Jax: Your brother's in trouble because of his own recklessness, Skye. He brought this on himself.
Ned: I couldn't agree more, Jax. A.J. is consumed by his ego. Granted, Sonny has taken a lot from him, and now A.J. wants to take a lot from Sonny -- namely his innocent sister. Now, it's certainly not the most heroic approach, but I have to give him credit. He's showing more daring than he has in the past.
Skye: The two of you make me sick.
Jax: Skye --
Ned: No, no, no, don't bother. In the dictionary under "bitch," you'll find a picture of Skye.
Jax: You know, Ned, why don't you just -- could you just stop with all this?
Ned: Oh -- you'll be better off without her, and you know it, Jax --
Jax: No, no, my relationship with Skye is our business and nobody else’s. And, you know, before you write her off, you know, the Quartermaines should take a big, long, hard look in the mirror before they -- before they dismiss her so readily.
Jax: It's Jax. Good work. I'll contact you as soon as I get down there. Thanks.
Jax: I know where A.J. and Courtney are.
Jax: He rented a villa in the Caribbean on an island called St. Sophia. So I'm going to go down there, see if I can talk some sense into him.
Ned: Great. I'll go with you. But first we got to tell Alexis.
Jax: No, we don't.
Sonny: You agree with Jax?
Alexis: In this instance, yes.
Sonny: Well, I'm not letting A.J. walk because Candy Boy tells me to. That's something I won't do, so --
Alexis: You said you trust me, right?
Alexis: You know why you trust me?
Alexis: Or why I think you trust me is because I always tell you the truth.
Alexis: And I'm giving you my opinion because I have your best interests at heart. And, ironically, so does Jax.
Sonny: You lost me there.
Alexis: He wants to protect A.J. because he's committed to Skye and I want to protect A.J. because I'm committed to you.
Sonny: Alexis, this is my decision, not yours.
Alexis: I understand. Guess I don't have to remind you that you're claustrophobic. And you can deny and downplay that as much as you want, but the fact of the matter is you spent hours in jail and it almost drove you insane. I'd hate to see what a lifetime of prison would do for you.
Sonny: I'm not going to prison.
Alexis: You will if you do anything illegal.
Sonny: Well, that depends how, you know, A.J. wants to play it.
Alexis: What if he doesn't play it to your liking?
Sonny: Well, every situation has a different solution.
Alexis: You give A.J. all your power. That's a great idea. Because he's trying to goad you, he's trying to bait you, he is trying to push you and hoping that you will lose control.
Sonny: Do I look like a man who's out of control?
Alexis: Not at this particular moment, no.
Sonny: You see, that's what lawyers do. You worry and you let your imagination cover every possible base, which is fine, because that's what I pay you to do. But not when it comes to A.J.
Alexis: You trust me, right?
Sonny: You know I do.
Alexis: Then listen to me, carefully. If you do anything illegal, I will recuse myself from the case. And I hate to burst your bubble, but you are not the Houdini of the justice system. You will go to prison. And I would hate to see that.
Nikolas: Taggert, I know Gia appreciates her family's love and support.
Taggert: She has it. We just want what's right for her.
Nikolas: I realize that. And she's extremely fortunate to have a brother she can count on.
Gia: Oh, so do you, Nikolas.
Nikolas: No, I used to, Gia.
Gia: Lucky will come around. He will remember all the good things that you've done for him, and this grudge that he's holding will seem petty and unimportant, and he will be back.
Nikolas: I hope so -- Taggert, would you like some breakfast? We've got enough here to serve an army. If you're hungry, help yourself.
Taggert: No, I'm fine. Actually, I'm here on official business.
Taggert: I need to ask you a few questions about the accident that nearly claimed Elizabeth Webber’s life.
Nikolas: I'm sorry, Taggert, but I can't let you ask Gia questions without an attorney present.
Taggert: That is Gia's right if she wants to invoke that. But it's her decision.
Gia: Well, I don't think I need a lawyer present. I mean, I have nothing to hide. Unless you're trying to trick me, Marcus.
Taggert: How can I trick you if you have nothing to hide?
Nikolas: You know, I'm a little confused here. You see, the police have already asked every single question they possibly can, so what else is there?
Taggert: Just, you know, loose ends. Nothing -- loose ends.
Nikolas: Okay, well, if it's okay with Gia, then ask away, Taggert.
Taggert: Is there someplace where we can talk alone?
Gia: Yeah. Here, I suppose. Would you mind? It's okay.
Nikolas: Not at all.
Gia: Are you sure you won't have some?
Taggert: No, I'm -- I'm fine.
Gia: Not even a waffle? I mean, I certainly don't need all this.
Taggert: You don't?
Gia: What do you mean?
Taggert: Well, you always said you wanted to live well, Gia. Looks like you got your wish.
Gia: It's not about that.
Taggert: You know, I remember when you were a little girl and you had that big bag of dress-up clothes, you know?
Gia: Well, yeah. Every little girl was into that stuff.
Taggert: And then you'd buy those teen magazines, and you'd pour over all those celebrity pictures. And then you would walk down the hall like you were a star walking down the red carpet.
Taggert: You always told me you wanted to be rich, Gia. Looks like you got your wish.
Gia: That's not why I'm with Nikolas. I love him. This is for real, Marcus. I thought you knew that.
Taggert: Would you still love him if he was a mailman or a plumber?
Gia: What kind of a question is that?
Taggert: Is that why you left Columbia, Gia? I mean, why get an education or get a job if you could, you know, just walk into the lifestyle of your dreams?
Gia: You know, I didn't even know Nikolas when I left school. And Columbia was Mom's dream. It was never mine. You know, you should know all about that because you chose to be a cop when you could've become some big-shot executive. And I wanted to be a model. And now I want to be with Nikolas for who he is, not what he has.
Taggert: I know you love Nikolas. I know that, okay? I'm just saying that maybe that's not the only thing going on here. Maybe it's the whole package.
Gia: Is there a point to all this -- I mean, really -- or are you just insulting me for the fun of it?
Taggert: What is going on in your head, Gia?
Gia: What do you want from me, Marcus?
Taggert: I want to know how you could look me in the face and lie to me.
Luke: Lulu, you'll be the most beautiful flower girl anybody ever saw.
Lesley: And you're going to have a gorgeous dress, and you're going to have a little basket with rose petals in it, and you'll be sprinkling the rose petals. It'll be wonderful. But right now, let's finish up our project.
Lesley Lu: Okay.
Luke: I like those umbrellas.
Lesley: They're not umbrellas.
Luke: Oh, they're not? Well, what are they? Mushrooms? Palm trees? U.F.O.s?
Lesley Lu: We're making maypoles.
Luke: Oh, maypoles. Sure, I was just about to say that.
Lesley: Of course you were. Okay, everybody, milk break?
Laura: Oh, good idea.
Lesley: Okay. Come on. My troop, with me, into the kitchen.
Laura: Do you need help, Mom?
Lesley: No, no, we'll be fine.
Lesley Lu: Do you like my maypole, Grandma?
Lesley: I love it. I love every single one of them. They're all beauties in their own rights.
Luke: Do you like my maypole?
Laura: Yours is the best.
Luke: Oh! I was so hoping you'd say that!
Laura: Oh --
Luke: Oh, baby.
Luke: Thank you, thank you for that sleepover.
Laura: Shall we have another play date soon?
Luke: I'm totally available. You name the day.
Laura: I love you.
Luke: I love you.
Laura: I've got to go help my mother. I feel guilty.
Luke: One more kiss?
Luke: Okay --
Laura: One more, one more!
Luke: Okay, thank you. My maypole thanks you.
Lucky: I need your help.
Luke: What's up?
Lucky: I don't know who Nikolas is anymore.
Luke: Well, he's a Cassadine, for starters.
Lucky: And my brother. So what do I do? Do I nail him for all the lies that he's told, all the damage that he's caused, or do I just let it go?
Jax: Telling Alexis is -- okay. You're joking, right? You're having fun with me here.
Jax: Come on.
Ned: No, I'm not. Alexis and I promised each other that we would pass on any information we got.
Jax: Okay, let me paint the picture for you here, okay? We tell Alexis. Alexis tells Sonny. Sonny goes to island, and Sonny will take matters into his own hands. And, believe me, that will not be pretty.
Ned: You don't understand Alexis.
Jax: Yes, I understand all too well. She's devoted to Corinthos. God knows why, but she is.
Ned: Alexis is terrified that Sonny will murder A.J., okay? And if that happens --
Jax: I understand.
Ned: Even she can't get him out of jail, okay?
Jax: Yeah. Do you trust Alexis?
Ned: Yes, I do.
Jax: Well, so do I -- but not where Corinthos is concerned. I shouldn't have even told you where A.J. and Courtney are.
Ned: Jax --
Jax: Ned, forget it, okay? I'm going to deal with this my way.
Ned: Jax, you can't do this --
Jax: Okay? Forget it.
Sonny: I'm not going to prison. But even if I was, why would you care? I mean, you could always find somebody else to put you on retainer.
Alexis: But if you're not here, who -- when I rant about any number of things, there will be no one here to talk me down. And if I have nothing to eat but popcorn in my kitchen and I'm starving to death, there won't be anyone here to whip me up a great meal that has all the food groups in it.
Alexis: And when it appears that life makes absolutely no sense to me and I want to talk to you, even though you never listen to anything that I ever say --
Alexis: I still like talking to you.
Sonny: I'm not going to prison, so you don't have to worry about anything.
Sonny: You got an eyelash there. It's kind of -- it was on your cheek.
Alexis: I think you're supposed to make a wish on it.
Sonny: Yeah? All right. Make a wish.
Alexis: That's the clerk. Ahem. I'm expecting an e-mail.
Sonny: "I've got her now. Love to you both, A.J."
[Knock on door]
Skye: Who is it?
Man: [Scottish accent] It's room service, ma'am.
Skye: Excuse me. I want you out of here right now.
Jax: [Normal voice] No, no, no. Not until I've done what I came to do.
Skye: Well, I know what you want from me.
Skye: Mm-hmm. It's a novel idea and somewhat distracting, but it's all smoke and mirrors. You just want me in bed for as long as I can amuse you. And maybe you'll send me flowers or perhaps give me a piece of jewelry, but then it's on to someone else. All the thoughtfulness and kindness, those empathetic speeches that made me actually think you understood me -- I mean, why didn't I see right through you? Oh, wait, because I know the answer. You're good at this. You've been practicing this white knight routine for years, and I must say, you've got it down. Pretty damn near perfect at it.
Jax: Huh. Well, you're wrong, Skye.
Skye: Skip the snow job, Jax. I know what you want from me. So let's just get it over with. Take me right here, right now, and just leave me alone.
Jax: You are spectacular. There's no question about that.
Skye: "Spectacular" and you're offering me bacon?
Jax: You might get a little chilly during breakfast, though. You need a good meal to fortify you for your trip.
Skye: What trip?
Jax: Do you want to help me save your brother or not?
Alexis: Maybe I can find him through his e-mail address.
Alexis: Oh, God. It's gone.
Sonny: What do you mean, "It’s gone"?
Alexis: I don't know what happened! I'm sorry! Sonny -- wait a minute. Sonny -- oh --
Ned: Alexis --
Alexis: Oh, boy.
Ned: Just one moment, okay? Please? Are you alone?
Alexis: Yeah. Oh, I --
Ned: I know where A.J. and Courtney are.
Ned: Before I tell you, I need you to be honest with me.
Alexis: Okay, okay, about what?
Ned: You promised you wouldn't tell Sonny. Did you mean it?
Lucky: What the hell's going on with Nikolas? He fought off Helena last year, then he helps her escape, and he knew that she would grab me -- or try. And he knew that he could hurt Mom or maybe even kill you, dad. It's like he didn't even give a damn. I mean, the only thing he cares about is Gia and the Cassadines.
Luke: Well, now, I don't think that's necessarily true.
Lucky: Dad, he looked me in the eyes and he lied to me! I mean, every time I tried to nail him with the truth, he just got colder and colder. I've never seen him look at me like that.
Luke: All right, so you're feeling betrayed?
Lucky: Yeah. He was my best friend. I trusted him with my life.
Laura: Nikolas loves you, Lucky. He's risked his own life to save yours. Remember that.
Lucky: No, no, it's past tense. He's changed.
Laura: No, he hasn’t. He's torn apart right now. He's trying -- he's struggling to try to make the right decisions.
Lucky: And he's making all the wrong ones. You know, he keeps thinking about if he's becoming like Stavros, and the answer is yes.
Laura: No, he's not. Listen, you and Nikolas mean far too much to each other to let it all be torn apart because of his mistakes right now.
Lucky: So why don't you just go ahead and tell that to Nikolas? You know, we made a pact. We told each other we weren't going to let any of this garbage get in the way of our family. We told each other we were the next generation, that we wouldn't let these past feuds touch us. How can he throw that away?
Luke: It may seem like that right now, but I don't think it's that simple.
Lucky: If you're trying to make excuses for him, dad, I'm not really interested in listening to them --
Luke: Lucky, Lucky -- Helena did this. She manipulated him. Now, we've all felt the sting of her plots. Cut the guy a little slack.
Laura: Try to have some compassion for your brother right now.
Lucky: No. I'm not going to let Nikolas get away with this. If that means Gia has to do prison time, so be it. There's no excuse for letting Helena escape like that. Now, he's got to pay, or we're going to end up paying. You've been dealing with the Cassadines your whole life. You know this, Dad.
Laura: Listen to yourself. Are you serious? Do you really want to go after your own brother? Lucky, think that one all the way through.
Taggert: I wasn't completely honest about why I came over here.
Gia: So you're not here on official police business?
Taggert: I'm a cop, Gia. It's my job to find out the facts about this accident. So I keep flashing over the accident, and I see Sonny's men trying to get Courtney away from the place. I see the way the cars were placed. They'd run through this fence. It was obvious the accident was bad. And then I walk around to the second car, and I see you, unconscious, behind the wheel. And I don't even know if you're alive, Gia. My heart, it starts to tighten like somebody's squeezing it, you know? I was so terrified that my knees almost buckled. I don't -- I don't ever want to lose you, Gia.
Gia: Marcus, you won’t.
Taggert: Listen. I know -- I know Nikolas takes good care of you. In a lot of ways.
Gia: It was a present, all right? If you have a problem with that, then --
Taggert: No, you always take the path of least resistance, all right? You -- do you remember the chores mom used to make us do, huh? You hated them with a passion. So you told that girl next door, Chelsea -- you said, "I'll do your hair and makeup if you come over and vacuum and dust." And then mom would come home, and she'd look, and the house would be all nice. And she'd praise you. You never once ‘fessed up.
Gia: Chelsea wasn't complaining. She looked great.
Taggert: You cut corners. You take the easy way out, Gia. You know what? Why spend months at your au pair job, right, when you could blackmail Emily in a day?
Gia: I don't do that sort of thing anymore, Marcus.
Taggert: Really? Well, what about now? What are you going to do now, huh? You got everything you've always wanted. Are you going to do everything you can to keep it? And then this accident happens, and you see it all slipping through your fingers like mercury. Or maybe -- maybe Nikolas pressured you, huh? He told you not to say anything so that you wouldn't lose all this, right?
Lucky: You can't justify to me what Nikolas has done.
Laura: I know. I think it's horrible that he covered for Gia after the accident. But I think what happened is he told one lie, and then it snowballed, and Helena took advantage of that. But he was just trying to protect Gia.
Luke: He made a mistake, Lucky. I grant you it was a big one, but it was just a mistake. I mean, if he'd handed Helena over to me, I'd have brought her in and nobody would've been the wiser about Gia.
Lucky: You knew about what Nikolas had done for Gia?
Luke: Not at the time.
Lucky: Well, what if he'd told you the truth? Would you have helped Nikolas? Would you have let Gia walk if he had handed over Helena to you?
Luke: I would've told him what I thought, which is, under the circumstances, the cops don't need the truth. But your brother, your mother, your family always needs the truth.
Lucky: Yeah, well, Nikolas doesn't look at me like family. Not when it counts. And when it mattered, he chose to be a Cassadine. He chose -- he chose Helena.
Laura: But Helena’s going to prison now, Lucky, with a life sentence.
Lucky: Yeah, only because Dad tracked her down. The cops have been useless, and now they're buying into Nikolas' story. I mean, they can't even find the witnesses for the accident. Helena always seems to run rings around them. I don't even know if I can trust Nikolas.
Laura: Maybe you should give yourself some time, Lucky, you know, and try to remember that you always had your dad and me -- not that we were perfect parents, but we sure did love you and we were always there for you. And Nikolas never had anyone but the Cassadines, right from the moment he was born.
Lucky: So you admit it. You admit that he's a Cassadine.
Laura: Only half of him.
Lucky: Well, he gave up this half.
Luke: Lucky, he's young, he's in love, and he made a mistake. Come on, we've all been there.
Lucky: We haven't made mistakes like this.
Laura: Have you ever stopped to think that maybe Nikolas needs our help right now?
Lucky: Well, I don't hear him asking for our help, mom!
Laura: Maybe because he's trying to do it all by himself right now. But we are a family, and that means that we stick together. And when one of us goes wandering off on the wrong path, the rest of us should try to pull him back. Lucky, please, I love you both so much. I'm begging you, give this a little time. Time heals absolutely everything. And I would hate to see you do something now that you will regret later.
Lucky: I love you, Mom.
Laura: I love you, Lucky.
Laura: What do you think he's going to do?
Luke: I don't think he knows yet.
Gia: I did what I did for Nikolas.
Taggert: Did what?
Gia: I told you, Marcus. I love Nikolas, and I tried to do what was right for him and for us.
Taggert: I'm your brother. I'm your family. I mean, look around you, Gia. Does this look like a normal family to you?
Gia: You think you know the truth, don't you?
Taggert: I'm not here to judge. I'm not here to lecture. I'm here to help.
Gia: I know.
Taggert: I mean, maybe you think that this story that you and Nikolas built is too huge and if you rip out one of the pieces, it'll come toppling down. But you're a survivor, Gia. You will be okay.
Gia: I will. Because I am innocent. And I will never leave Nikolas, no matter what.
Taggert: So that's it, then?
Gia: You asked me to be straight with you.
Taggert: You know, I -- I wish I could tell you that everything's going to be okay for you and Nikolas. But you two -- you got a long road ahead of you.
Taggert: You take care, all right?
Gia: You, too.
Skye: Oh, my God. You found out where A.J. is? Is he all right? Does Sonny know where he was?
Jax: I thought you wanted to save your brother.
Skye: I do.
Jax: Okay. Well, then, meet me at the airport at 6:00. And you might want to bring more than a robe because we're flying to the Caribbean.
Skye: Oh, my God.
Jax: What? What now?
Skye: How are you ever going to forgive me for all those terrible things that I said to you?
Jax: Well, I've forgiven you before for all the dreadful things that you said to me, so -- it's nice that you have some other redeeming qualities. Well, enjoy the breakfast. I'll see you at the airport.
Skye: Okay. Mmm. Mmm.
Alexis: I don't really want Sonny to find A.J.
Ned: You're sure?
Alexis: I don't really think anything positive's going to come from it.
Ned: Okay. All right. I'll make some arrangements, and then I'm going to come back and pick you up later.
Alexis: Do I need a passport?
Ned: Yes, you do. A.J. is at a private villa on the island of St. Sophia.
Alexis: Thank you for trusting me with this. I'll get ready.
Ned: And thank you for justifying my faith.
Laura: How long of a delay?
[Knock on door]
Laura: Come in! Well, listen, I want a conference call first thing in the morning. Yeah, they were contracted to deliver those essences to us. I don't want to give them any time to stall and shop it around and sell it to enchantment. Okay. Thanks, Elton. Bye-bye. You're back again.
Luke: I cannot stay away.
Laura: Well, be careful, or people will say that you are drawn to this place.
Luke: Or somebody who lives here. Did Lucky come back?
Laura: No. I guess that means you haven't seen him, either?
Luke: No, I suppose he's got a lot to think about.
Laura: Yeah. So does Nikolas. I love them both so much, Luke. And I just feel that they are headed for a collision course.
Luke: Well, you never thought you'd hear this piece of advice from me, but -- you want to hear it?
Luke: Are you sure?
Luke: Hope for the best.
Laura: Oh, Luke.
Luke: Oh, baby, I got you now. I'm never letting you go. I'm so happy you're in my life. God, I'm so happy.
Luke: I'm so happy.
Laura: I love you, Luke.
Luke: You better, you better.
Lucky: Hey, there, brother. I figured you'd be hiding in the dark.
Jax: Wind 220 at six. Roger that. Fasten your seat belt.
Skye: Okay. I think the buckle's stuck, though. Oh.
Jax: There. That tight enough for you?
Skye: Yeah, it's fine.
Skye: Jax, I want you to know how much I appreciate this.
Jax: Well, let's just hope we can throw some sense into A.J. Yeah, 34 poppa. We'll taxi out. Roger that. We're cleared for takeoff. Hang on to your seat. Here we go.
Skye: What's the matter? What, did you leave the door open?
Jax: No, it's worse than that. We got a problem.
[Knock on door]
Alexis: I'm all set.
Sonny: Looks like it. You going somewhere?
Alexis: On a business trip.
Sonny: Yeah, I decided to go and stay at the Puerto de Santos. That way I can, you know, be closer when they locate A.J. and Courtney. You look like you're dressed to go to the Caribbean, too.
Alexis: You're going to miss your plane if you don't hurry.
Sonny: Oh, the pilot will, you know -- he'll leave when I tell him to leave.
Alexis: Well, I'm going to miss my plane if I don't hurry.
Sonny: Where'd you say you were going?
Alexis: I didn't.
Sonny: You going somewhere with Ned?
Ned: Los Angeles. I have some contract disputes with one of my bands.
Sonny: Contract dispute, huh?
Sonny: You're not going to find A.J., are you?
Ned: No, no, Sonny. A.J. is your problem. I have a band on the brink of a walkout, so if you'll excuse us --
Sonny: Yeah, I got to discuss something with Alexis. You see, I might need her, and I just need to know if she's being honest with me. So, where are you going, Alexis? To Los Angeles or to look for A.J. and my sister? If you know where they are, you should tell me.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Laura: The first time I met Gia, I knew that she was going to be trouble.
Luke: This is not all Gia's fault.
Lucky: Here lies Nikolas Cassadine.
Skye: Jax, what are we going to do?
Jax: We're going to try to get to A.J. and Courtney as quick as possible.
Ned: We really need to go now.
Sonny: You need to answer me.
