>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Taggert: I'm trying to save you.
Gia: I don't need saving.
Elizabeth: What are you doing here?
Jason: Carly asked me. And I wanted to see you.
Maxie: You witch. It's all your fault. You told Lucky to stay away from me.
Sonny: Did that lead pan out -- the guy who saw Carly when she disappeared?
Carly: It is over between you and Sonny. You will never be with him again.
Luke: All right, let that be a lesson to you!
Luke: Oh, you'll never stiff Luke Spencer again! Let's get out of here.
Laura: Oh, my God, you're crazy.
Luke: Thank you, darling. Thank you, thank you. Are you all right?
Laura: Oh, fine. Never better. What about you?
Luke: I'm cool. I got the money on the girl.
Laura: Okay. Let's blow this pop stand.
Luke: All right, consider the pop stand blown.
Luke: Oh! I don't like this. Come on, come on!
Sarah: Lucky --
Lucky: No, no, no, I don't -- I can't stop with you anymore, Sarah. Can you honestly tell me that you can?
Bobbie: Hey, girl.
Bobbie: Thank you so much for volunteering to help with the party.
Felicia: For all the good it did. Elton didn't let me do anything.
Scott: He's like a fussbudget. He's got his nose in everybody's business.
Felicia: He is a Godsend. I think this is going to be a great party.
Sonny: Did the guy tell you anything about what happened with Carly while she was gone?
Jason: Just that he saw her in Sycamore Bend, which fits because there's a lot of summer cabins up in that area.
Sonny: Is there any way to find out which one she stayed at? Because she was traumatized by the accident and I need to fill in the blanks. Because if somebody took advantage of her, I need to know.
Alexis: Will you excuse me?
Carly: No. Not until you tell me what it is you think Sonny could possibly want from you.
Alexis: Nothing. Absolutely nothing. You're right. I'm perfectly insignificant --
Carly: Okay, you know what? You need to listen to me for one minute. I really hope that you enjoyed your one night with Sonny and that you've got a photographic memory because it is the only way you will ever relive that again.
Alexis: Let go of my arm, Carly.
Carly: Hmm? What?
Alexis: Don't do something that you're going to regret. Let go of my arm.
Carly: Oh, oh, oh -- is that a threat?
Alexis: Will you please let go of my arm?
Kristina: Oh, my God -- Alexis? Alexis? What's going on?
Ned: You okay?
Kristina: You okay?
Jax: What's going on?
Alexis: I'm fine.
Sonny: What happened?
Alexis: I'm fine.
Kristina: You okay? You all right?
Alexis: I'm fine.
Laura: Is it serious?
Luke: I don't know yet. Probably. I don't think we're going to get any help from that crowd in there.
Laura: No, neither do I.
Luke: And you know that big snaggletooth bazooka?
Luke: Yeah, Sharkey. He took out the wall phone when he swung that pool cue at me. You didn't bring your cell, did you?
Laura: I asked you to grab it.
Luke: Ooh, ow!
Laura: Are you all right?
Luke: Yeah, yeah. Ooh.
Laura: Wait a minute now. Is this -- is this anything like, you know, Beecher's Corners and that motorcycle thing? I mean, I think that's really, really sweet of you and cute to keep coming up with these romantic reasons to get us stranded together, but, really, all you have to do is ask.
Luke: Oh. Okay. Well, the only thing wrong with that little story you just told is this baby really is dead on her wheels.
Laura: Oh. You mean that we're really stranded?
Luke: Unless we can find a wrench.
Kristina: What did you do to my sister?
Carly: I didn't do anything.
Sonny: Okay, you know what? We should probably get her up.
Kristina: Look, I -- I've got her. Come on.
Ned: Take a seat here. Alexis --
Alexis: I'm all right.
Jax: You okay?
Alexis: Yes, I'm fine.
Sonny: What -- what happened?
Alexis: I slipped. I stumbled. It was my fault. Look, it was mortifying, not fatal, guys. Just go into the party, okay?
Jax: Okay. Well, in that case, allow me to take the guest of honor into her party.
Carly: Oh, thanks, Jax, but I already have an escort.
Sonny: You know what? It's your party and people are waiting.
Jax: Yeah. Come on.
Carly: What about you?
Sonny: I'll be there.
Jax: Come on.
Carly: All right.
Sonny: You sure you're not hurt?
Alexis: Just my pride.
Sonny: Well, don't just blow this off because it's not the first time you've been unsteady this week, right?
Alexis: I probably still have the flu. I shouldn't have come. I'm going to go home, get some rest, and I'll be as good as new tomorrow.
Ned: Don't worry, Sonny. Go back inside. We'll take good care of her.
Sonny: All right. I'll check in with you later.
Alexis: I need to see a doctor.
Kristina: Why didn't you say so?
Alexis: I didn't want to make a scene. Could you give me a lift there?
Ned: I'll get the car.
Kristina: Come on.
Alexis: It's all right.
Kristina: Alexis --
Alexis: I'm okay.
Felicia: Are you speaking to me?
Maxie: Not unless I have to.
Felicia: I know you're upset with me because I went to Lucky, but I promise you when we get home I'll explain to you in full detail all my reasons and all my concerns --
Maxie: "Upset" doesn't begin to cover it, and I don't care about your reasons and concerns. When did being related to someone give them the license to ruin your life?
Felicia: Thank you.
Elizabeth: Maxie? Hey, are you okay?
Maxie: Actually, I'm lousy. My mom is out of control. She sticks her nose where it doesn't belong. Whatever happened to the concept of privacy? Between her and my completely nosy little sister --
Elizabeth: Now, there's something I can relate to -- the whole sister thing. I know it can be tough, but I also know from experience, if you're brave enough to give it a chance, a sister can be the best friend you'll ever have.
Maxie: I can't believe you're saying that. You of all people.
Elizabeth: What do you mean by that?
Maxie: With friends like Sarah, you don't need any enemies.
Elizabeth: Wait a minute. I feel like I missed something here.
Maxie: You know, forget it.
Elizabeth: No, Maxie, it's a little late for that. Now, tell me, what do you mean about Sarah?
Maxie: Sister friend is upstairs in bed with Lucky as we speak.
Elizabeth: Why would you say something like that?
Maxie: Because it's true. If you don't believe me, go up and see for yourself.
Laura: You know, why -- you see that red wire up there? You know, why don't you just jiggle that a little bit? I saw the guy at the gas station do it.
Luke: Hon, I think that the problem here is a little more complicated than jiggling a red wire.
Laura: Well, maybe, but maybe not. Why don't you just try it?
Luke: Are you questioning my automotive expertise?
Laura: Only where this big junk heap is concerned.
Luke: When we get re-hitched, you're not going to do this, are you? I mean, you never did before -- sort of nag me about little things, pick at my ego and, you know --
Laura: I never nagged, never. I asked nicely and you chose not to listen. I hope you're not going to do that again.
Luke: I listened. I heard everything that ever came from your beautiful lips.
Laura: Oh, I'll bet you did.
Luke: Let's just forget it. I mean, when we're married again, we're going to be the personification of -- of perfection. Really, that's what we're going to be.
Laura: But to do that, we have to get married.
Laura: Don't you agree?
Luke: I do agree. Ow! Now, what
Laura: That's because every time I try to bring up the wedding, you completely avoid me.
Lucky: I can't believe how beautiful you are. It's like --
Lucky: I don't know. It's like free-fall.
Kristina: So what happened back there? How exactly did you fall?
Alexis: It was a clumsy moment.
Kristina: Oh, right. So all of a sudden you're clumsy when Carly happens to be standing right there?
Alexis: She didn't push me, if that's what you're implying.
Kristina: Was Carly the reason that you fell?
Alexis: Kristina --
Alexis: Stop interrogating me. I know you're concerned. I don't want to bite your head off. I'm just tense, all right? I just don't know when the doctor's going to get here.
Ned: He's here.
Dr. Caldwell: I understand you took a fall.
Alexis: Yes, I did. Um --
Ned: Why don't we leave Alexis alone with the doctor.
Kristina: All right. Unless you want me to stay?
Alexis: No. Thank you. This is better, yeah.
Dr. Caldwell: I'll need to know the circumstances of the fall and where you're experiencing any discomfort. From there we can decide whether an x-ray is appropriate.
Alexis: I can't be x-rayed.
Dr. Caldwell: Is there any particular reason?
Alexis: I just found out that I'm pregnant. I came in here because I want to make sure that I didn't hurt the baby.
Jax: Come on, Carly, it didn't look like nothing -- not to mention the fact that Alexis ended up on the ground.
Carly: Well, not because of me.
Jax: You were talking about Sonny, weren't you?
Carly: You know what, Jax? Just drop it. Okay, it was a minor disagreement, no one got hurt, and it is over.
Jax: Is it?
Carly: Sure -- as long as Alexis stays out of my way where Sonny is concerned. You know what? You can stop worrying about my problems because yours just walked in the door.
Jax: Look, just do me a favor. Leave Alexis alone, okay? Hey. What are you doing here?
Skye: Looking for you. Please stop me before I give in to one of my less-than-sterling impulses and strangle Edward in his sleep.
Jax: Oh. What's the old coot up to now?
Skye: Oh, believe me, you don't want to know all the gory details. Let's just say that when it comes to unconscionable acts, he's really topped himself this time. And when I called him on it, he threatened to get me. My own grandfather. And he really meant it this time. Jax, I am so incredibly angry right now.
Jax: Well, yeah, that's pretty clear. I'll tell you what -- why don't I take you to someplace where you can channel all that negativity without hurting any innocent bystanders?
Jax: Come on. Let's go.
Elton: Ahem. Chicken wing? You're a business associate of Mr. Corinthos, are you not?
Elton: And you're guarding him tonight, which implies there could be trouble.
Carly: You know what? I -- how many times do I have to say this before someone believes me? I did not provoke Alexis. I did not push her. And you know what? If you're going to continue to take her side, I'm going to leave.
Sonny: I just asked you a question. Why you getting so defensive?
Carly: Because the way you asked it, it sounded accusatory. "Let's -- let's make Carly guilty for something even if we don't know what it is."
Sonny: I never said that.
Bobbie: Okay, everybody, can I have your attention please? Carly? We need the guest of honor.
Carly: Let's not fight, okay? We're supposed to be happy. I don't want to fight --
Sonny: Yeah, all right. All right.
Bobbie: Oh, it feels so good to see you walking towards me like this. I am so over the moon to have my daughter back.
Carly: And thank you, all of you, for being here and being so supportive of my mom when I was missing. You know what? That's really all. I just wanted to say thanks and enjoy the party, okay?
Carly: Jason --
Jason: You didn't tell Sonny the truth, did you?
Carly: Not yet.
Jason: Carly, you promised.
Carly: Yes, and I meant it.
Carly: Jason, there hasn't been any time.
Jason: No, no, no. You're going to have to do better than that.
Carly: We had to be here for the party.
Jason: I said something I meant. If you don't come clean with Sonny about staying gone on purpose after the accident, I'm going to.
Carly: Jason, you cannot tell him.
Jason: Watch me.
Carly: Jason, you have no idea what it was like while you were gone. How -- I did so much stuff, Sonny froze me out. I was desperate for his forgiveness and I do not want to go back to that again, and Sonny doesn't want it, either.
Jason: So your solution is to lie to him more?
Carly: I am back. Can't it just be enough?
Jason: No, because Sonny will not let it. He asked me to find your cabin and check out your story. He's going to expect me to come home with some answers, and I'm going to.
Sonny: You -- you cannot stay inside for the life of you. What's going on?
Lucky: Elizabeth --
Elizabeth: Do not even fix your mouth to say "I can explain." Besides, no explanation necessary. Even pathetic little Elizabeth can put this puzzle together. Don't let me interrupt.
Lucky: Hey, Elizabeth -- hey, will you wait a second?
Elizabeth: Why should I? Huh? So I can hear more "sorry"? "Sorry I don't love you anymore, Elizabeth"? "Sorry I can't keep away from your sister"? Please don't expect me to believe you're sorry you took her to bed. This probably isn't even the first time.
Lucky: I swear it is. Believe that.
Elizabeth: I don’t. I don't, and you know what? I don't have to believe or be one more thing I don't choose. And that includes spending one more minute staring at your miserable, lying face.
Lucky: Hold on a second.
Elizabeth: You know what? Let go of me, Lucky.
Lucky: Fine. Fine. One thing, though. I did this. Don't take it out on Sarah.
Sarah: No, Elizabeth, we both did this.
Elizabeth: You know, I've really got to hand it to you, Sarah. You are a piece of work. I completely underestimated you. Sarah the good, Sarah the pure, Sarah the lying slut who swore to my face she would never go after Lucky. Do you remember that? I just told you it would kill me to see the two of you together. But you know what? I think I underestimated myself, too, because I did see it and I'm still standing. It didn't kill me. Yes, it disgusts me to see the two you in the same bed where he used to make love to me, Sarah. But I was done anyway. Knock yourself out. And you know what? Go ahead. May as well take her on the counter of Kelly’s, too. You both are nothing to me.
Carly: Nothing. You know -- I didn't know Jason was at the party and I thought he was leaving and I didn't want him to go without catching up.
Sonny: So that's why you ran out?
Carly: Is that what I did?
Carly: I ran?
Carly: You know, I think I just wasn't very comfortable in there and -- do you mind if we leave?
Sonny: No, no, not at all. Can you say bye to Bobbie for me?
Carly: Yeah. I'll be right back.
Sonny: All right. So I can count on you to check on Carly's story, right?
Jason: Yeah, you can count on me.
Sonny: Yeah. But so many men, you know, looking out for her before, like, you know, our guys, Jax's, you know, the cops -- even Nikolas Cassadine had people on it. Just -- it doesn't -- you know what? It doesn't add up. You know what I'm talking about?
Jason: I'll take care of it.
Carly: You ready?
Sonny: Yep. Let's go.
Carly: Okay. Thanks for coming to my homecoming. I'm happier than I've been in a long time.
Sonny: All right, buddy.
Dr. Caldwell: You should feel a slight pressure. Is there any pain?
Dr. Caldwell: Do you have any other children?
Alexis: This is my first pregnancy.
Dr. Caldwell: So it's all new and a little nerve-racking.
Alexis: You could say that.
Dr. Caldwell: Okay. You can sit up now.
Alexis: Is the baby okay?
Kristina: Haven't they been in there a long time?
Ned: Not really.
Kristina: I'm just afraid that Alexis really hurt herself.
Dr. Caldwell: As far as I can ascertain, your baby's going to be fine. However, I would strongly suggest that you see your ob-gyn as soon as possible.
Alexis: I've already made an appointment. My sister and my friend -- I'm -- well, I'd like to keep this to myself, if you don't mind.
Dr. Caldwell: Of course.
Maxie: I saw you go upstairs.
Elizabeth: Maxie, I don't want to get into this right now.
Maxie: I understand. I'm really sorry.
Elizabeth: Don't be. You didn't do anything wrong.
Roy: Boy, you're -- you're going through a rough, rough stretch there, huh, pal?
Felicia: I wish there was something I could do. Did you go through this with Hannah?
Roy: No, Hannah -- Hannah was perfect. Piece of cake.
Roy: You got a smile on. That's good. I've been wondering what I could do to make that happen more often.
Felicia: Come up with anything?
Roy: Well, you know, sometimes it helps to dance.
Felicia: Is that an invitation?
Roy: Is that a yes?
Roy: Let's do it. Come on.
Gia: Looks like we're later than we thought.
Nikolas: You okay?
Nikolas: What can I do? Hmm?
Gia: Nothing. Well, love me in spite of myself.
Nikolas: That you can count on.
Gia: You know what? As upset as I am about this whole prospect of ending up in jail, I think I'm more upset about having to put my brother in the situation where he has to make the choice.
Nikolas: I am telling you, he's not going to do anything, okay?
Gia: Why do you keep saying that? What makes you so sure? Huh?
Taggert: I'd like to know that myself.
Nikolas: It doesn't take a genius, Taggert. You love your sister. You don't want to see her hurt. Isn't that why you're trying so hard to get me out of the picture?
Taggert: As quiet as this has been kept, I haven't tried all that hard yet.
Nikolas: That's right. That is right. It's true because you have other people doing your dirty work for you. For instance, the cop that you planted in my home to get evidence on me, but instead she found a tape with Gia and Helena, and, well, she brought it to you, right?
Taggert: You know what? You know what? It don't matter who found it or who gave it to who. What matters is where it's going to put my sister. Now, time is up, Gia. I need to know what your decision is.
Gia: You want me to walk away from the man that I love and everything that we've built together just to avoid ending up in prison? Well, I guess it seems like a no-brainer to you, huh? But we all know how selfish I am. And I guess I'm either going to disappoint you or surprise you this time, Marcus, but I'm not giving Nikolas up. So if you have to arrest me or do whatever you have to do, I guess you better pull out the cuffs, then.
Nikolas: And if you do that, you'll be sorry.
Taggert: All righty, then. I'll be back. I expect you all to be here.
Gia: Where is he going? What is he going to do?
Nikolas: It's going to be okay, all right? Trust me.
Luke: Hell of a cigar.
Laura: Look, if you're having second thoughts, it's okay to say it. I'd rather know now.
Luke: Sweetheart, bite your tongue. I want a replay on this marriage as much as I wanted the first one.
Laura: Well, then, you could act a little bit interested.
Luke: I'm totally interested, but -- well, my interest lies in you, me, and who's going to pronounce us man and wife. The rest of it, the trappings -- that's all your department.
Laura: Oh, I see. It's all woman's work, is that it?
Luke: Just tell me when and where to be and I'll show up. I'm going to start this up now.
Laura: Did you wiggle the red thingy?
Luke: I can't say that I did, darling.
Laura: You know something? Planning a wedding is a lot of work. I mean, a lot. You have no idea what all goes into it. Okay. Start her up.
Luke: Whoo, I did it! Oh, man, I'm amazing. I'm not amazing. You wiggled the red wire, didn't you?
Laura: Yes, I did. If you had only listened to me in the first place, it would've been done hours ago.
Luke: About the wedding -- maybe we shouldn't do a big blowout. Maybe we should do something different.
Laura: You mean something kind of small and intimate, maybe -- maybe even with our kids there?
Luke: Yeah. That'd be nice. Or, even better –
Jax: This way. Here we go.
Skye: Where are we?
Jax: Why don't you take a guess.
Skye: Okay. Well, considering my mood and my eyes are covered, well, I could probably beat up a piñata right now.
Jax: That's pretty close.
Skye: Oh -- where is everybody?
Jax: Well, you know, I took the liberty of calling ahead to make sure we had the place to ourselves.
Skye: I love it! I love that. A man who knows what to do with his money, unlike my vindictive, conniving, nasty, old goat of a grandfather that I have.
Jax: Okay. This is impulse therapy. Meet whack-a-mole. Ever played it?
Jax: Okay, these little critters -- they pop out of these holes at random, you whack them over the head, you rack up points. They're pretty quick.
Skye: Yeah? Let me at those suckers.
Jax: All right. Have at it.
Skye: All right.
Skye: This is fabulous!
Jax: Feels good, huh?
Skye: Do they all have to be Edward?
Jax: They can be anyone you want.
Skye: Okay. Take that, Monica and Ned! Asa! Max! Blair! Carly! Ooh, and Sonny!
Carly: Mmm. Hey.
Carly: Oh, that shower was great. I feel all warm and safe now.
Sonny: Well, I want you to be safe, and I -- I want to be safe with you. Um --
Sonny: I know that you hate that I slept with Alexis. But I'm telling you and I want you to know that it was one time and it's not going to happen again.
Carly: Does she know that?
Sonny: I don't know. But she's part of my life and she's, you know, my lawyer and friend, and I just -- I just want you to treat her with respect.
Carly: Sonny, that goes both ways.
Sonny: I know, but all I'm asking you is don't push her, figuratively or literally.
Carly: Sonny, I didn't push her.
Sonny: Alexis is -- is not the threat you want or need to believe she is. You're going to have to trust me on that, like I want to trust you.
Carly: You know what? I don't really -- I don't want to talk about Alexis anymore, okay? I think that's enough for one night.
Sonny: What's the next subject?
Carly: Delayed gratification.
Carly: Because I've wanted to be with you all night.
Sonny: I don't know.
Alexis: I'm fine. I'm fine.
Kristina: You have had a few stressful hours, so this will help you take the edge off.
Alexis: I don't want any, thanks.
Kristina: Stop it. Just drink it.
Alexis: Will you do me a favor and take my well-meaning sister somewhere?
Kristina: Don't even think about it. We're staying here.
Alexis: How am I going to get any rest?
Ned: She has a point, actually.
Alexis: I promise I'm not going to run laps. I'm not even going to work. I'm just exhausted and I would just -- I just want some peace.
Kristina: All right, I -- I mean, I guess that I could go to the gatehouse if -- you know, if you want.
Alexis: With my blessings.
Kristina: All right, I'll go get my things.
Alexis: Thank you.
Ned: Listen, why don't you have a sip of wine, help you relax.
Alexis: I would love some music. Would you do me a favor and just put something on?
[Light jazz plays]
Ned: How's that?
Alexis: I'm relaxed. I drank the whole thing.
Luke: We look good, right?
Laura: What do you mean?
Luke: Well, you look great.
Laura: Thank you.
Luke: And where are we?
Laura: Uh -- the Canadian border.
Luke: More specifically --
Laura: Niagara Falls.
Luke: Right. Now, wouldn't it be a waste, just a crying shame, to be here, looking as good as you do, and not have a honeymoon?
Laura: I hate to tell you this, but the honeymoon comes after the wedding.
Luke: By George, I think she's got it.
Laura: You mean -- you mean elope tonight to Niagara Falls?
Luke: Why not? Why not? We'll forget all the hoopla and the finger sandwiches. Just you, me, a Justice of the Peace, and the first courthouse we see. What do you say? Will you marry me tonight?
Laura: Yes, yes, tonight!
Luke: Oh, baby, oh, baby! Oh, good. Good, good, good, good, good, good.
Lucky: Hey -- you can't leave.
Sarah: You must be joking.
Lucky: No. We just need to give Elizabeth a little time to calm down, you know, to get used to the idea.
Sarah: That's not going to happen, Lucky.
Lucky: But why? Sarah, Elizabeth and I are broken up.
Sarah: I thought I could stay away from you.
Lucky: We couldn't stay away from each other. I hate the fact that I hurt Elizabeth. But I don't want to hurt you, either.
Sarah: Look, I just want to go home, okay? Can you show me the back door out of this place?
Lucky: Sarah, I wish that you'd stay.
Sarah: I don't want to face anyone right now.
Lucky: Fine. Whatever you say.
Elizabeth: Oh, shoot. Darn it.
Bobbie: Elizabeth --
Bobbie: Is everything all right?
Elizabeth: No, actually, it's -- it's not, Bobbie. Do you mind if I leave?
Bobbie: No, of course not. It's fine.
Elizabeth: Thank you.
Elizabeth: Can we go someplace? I really need you right now.
Felicia: Well, I think I should take Maxie home for our nightly fireworks display in the living room.
Roy: Oh, okay. Well, keep your head up, you know? I think you're doing a great job with her.
Felicia: Feel free to say that anytime.
Roy: I will. I will, and thanks for the dance, too.
Felicia: It was fun.
Felicia: See you.
Roy: Yeah. I'm heading out.
Felicia: Okay. It's time to go.
Bobbie: Hey. Hi. Good luck.
Bobbie: Thank you.
Felicia: Thank you. I'll talk to you later.
Bobbie: Hang in there.
Taggert: I made up my mind.
Alexis: What were you thinking?
Alexis: It's okay, little one. We can do this. And we can do it on our own.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Edward: Let me help you, A.J. I'm on your side.
Jax: I don't think so.
Gia: What have you decided, Marcus?
Taggert: I came here to arrest you.
