General Hospital Transcript Tuesday 6/11/02
>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Ned: You know how I feel about Kristina.
Jax: I also know how much you loved Alexis.
Roscoe: I need some information on Sonny Corinthos, and I'm willing to pay for it.
Elizabeth: Where in the world did you get all that cash?
Zander: Why's it matter?
Sonny: What about Roscoe?
Jason: He's going to get taken care of.
Sonny: That was fast.
Jason: He had to be stopped. Sonny sent me.
Jax: Well, you made a serious mistake.
Edward: No, Jax, my mistake was accommodating Skye on any level.
Jax: Well, you'd do well to accommodate me. Skye is co-C.E.O. of this company.
Edward: But you see, she has been outmaneuvered. She's gone, Jax, just a distant, unpleasant memory. And good riddance, too. I finally removed her, which I should have done months ago.
Jax: Read the corporate bylaws, Edward. You don't have the authority to take over this company.
Edward: Oh, I'm surprised at you, Jax. You haven't been paying attention. Now, while you have been wallowing in romantic claptrap with Skye, I've been busy removing every trace of Skye so that I am now the sole C.E.O. of E.L.Q. And if you'll excuse me, I have some work that I need to get out this morning.
Jax: We had an agreement, remember?
Edward: Yes, based on your expectation that you still had leverage, and you donít.
Jax: You're delusional, Edward. Senility has finally taken its toll.
Woman: Show some respect. How dare you speak to Maestro that way.
Jax: "Maestro"? Who might this be?
Woman: You are here without an appointment. I'll ask the questions. Who are you?
Edward: Jasper Jacks, allow me to present Petra, my new executive assistant. She's extremely devoted.
Jax: It's a pleasure. Let me ask you this, Edward -- is she devoted enough to visit you in prison? Because that's where you're headed.
Alan: What's this?
Monica: A gift. Consider it an early Father's Day present.
Alan: How thoughtful.
Doctor: Has Ms. Davis experienced any delayed reactions to the fall? Any aches or pains, dizziness?
Ned: No, no, not that I'm aware of.
Doctor: I'm glad to hear she's feeling well.
Ned: Well, I'll let her know that you asked about her. Hang on a second. Actually, there's something else I want to ask you about Alexis.
Doctor: Well, I've got rounds, but I should be finished in about an hour. Feel free to stop back --
Ned: No, this will only take a second, okay?
Kristina: Ned. We have a major problem.
Carly: So you don't mind the change of plans?
Sonny: No, dinner with Michael sounds great.
Carly: Okay, you know, see if Jason wants to come, because I know he's dying to see Michael.
Sonny: Well, he's kind of busy, you know what I'm saying? But I'll mention it to him.
Carly: You know, I cannot remember the last time you cooked dinner for me and Michael.
Carly: Yeah, what are we having?
Sonny: Surprise you. Nah.
Carly: "Nah." All right, well, anything but fish, because you know how Michael hates fish.
Sonny: Yeah, but you hate fish unless I make it.
Carly: No -- okay, just not tonight, please?
Sonny: All right, no fish. I'll see you in a little bit.
Carly: Can't wait.
Alexis: Is really isn't a good time.
Carly: Oh, Alexis, I know you're probably busy suing someone or something. I'm not going to keep you long. Just I wanted to give you this.
Alexis: A real estate agent. How subtle.
Carly: Yeah. You know, actually, she's quite good because I used her while Sonny and I were separated.
Alexis: You're divorced, Carly.
Carly: It's a legal technicality. In the end, it doesn't really count for much. Sonny and I are together now and that's all that matters. Oh, anyway, you know what, you should give her a call because she's really good, and then the sooner you move out, the sooner Jason can move back in, because it's actually his apartment. So you might want to try -- I don't know, someplace across town or, I don't know, maybe farther. You know where I hear's a good market? Wyoming these days.
Zander: What's with the death stare? That supposed to scare me? Sonny's flunky, staring me down?
Jason: You sold Sonny out to Roscoe. Can't happen again.
Zander: Yeah, okay, so what happens next? You here to blow my head off? Stare me down? What, huh? Here to shut me up, score some points with your boss? Is that what it is, huh?
Jason: Don't -- don't do that again.
Zander: Why not, Jason? Come on, man. Big man, what you going to do, huh? Sonny's enforcer? What, you got nothing to say, no witty comeback?
Jason: Just don't learn, Zander. Maybe you canít. Merry Christmas.
Petra: If you're working late, you'll need a proper meal. For strength, right?
Edward: Oh, that's not necessary, my dear. Don't trouble yourself.
Petra: Nonsense. It's no trouble. I'll be back before you miss me.
Edward: Oh, that would be impossible.
Jax: All right, fine. You want to play hardball? All bets are off. I agreed to keep my mouth shut about your little insider trading.
Edward: Yes, in exchange for my dropping the extortion charges against Skye and A.J., which I did. The deal is done.
Jax: Oh, I see. So transaction completed, terms and conditions no longer apply? Well, I guess that means I'm free to tell the authorities everything I know. This how I see it. You have three choices, Edward -- one, you reinstate Skye immediately, preferably before she gets back --
Edward: No, that's absolutely out of the question.
Jax: Number two, you face a lengthy prison sentence, forfeiture of your accounts, and major fines --
Edward: I will not be intim--
Jax: Or number three, you find yourself a developed country without extradition and make a run for it.
Lila: I'm afraid running is out of the question. Edward, I'd like to have a moment with Mr. Jacks, alone.
Alan: Little bit, don't you think?
Monica: What? What are you talking about?
Alan: I really don't need a reminder about the state of our relationship and I certainly don't need a pile of shredded paper to know that our divorce is pending.
Monica: Will you listen, please? The shredded paper is what is left of the divorce petition. I don't want one. Is that clear?
Alan: I knew it. You were bluffing all along.
Monica: No. No, I was not bluffing. I was really serious, Alan. Until I realized that you were right and I was wrong.
Alan: Are you feeling all right?
Monica: Are you listening?
Alan: Absolutely I'm going to listen because I really want to hear why you were wrong because this is an absolute rarity in our marriage. But what I want to hear more than that is that you love me and that the reason you tore up the divorce papers is because you want to be with me.
Monica: Of course I love you. Why else would I put up with you and your family?
Alan: I love you, too. And now that we've cleared that up, I would really like to know why I was right -- and please, take your time.
Monica: Ooh. Well, I look at A.J. and I see the tailspin that he's in. I mean, using people, hurting the family. It breaks my heart. It really does. I love him. He's my son. But all I'm doing -- or I was doing -- was enabling him, and it was at the expense of our marriage, and I should have listen to you, okay?
Alan: Well, I will accept your apology on one condition. You have to let me move back in to the bedroom tonight.
Ned: You know, I don't know how many different ways to say it, okay -- Alexis is a friend of mine and I'm concerned for her and there's nothing more to it.
Kristina: And I wish that I could believe that.
Ned: Alexis and I are ancient history. She knows it, I know it, and I thought you finally accepted it.
Kristina: Ned, you are obsessed with my sister, and it is obvious to everyone except you.
Ned: Because it's not true.
Kristina: Well, I don't know what else to say. I mean, why else would you be here interrogating the doctor who examined her and --
Ned: Who do I look like, the grand inquisitor? The doctor came up to me, okay? We were having a casual conversation. He's the one who brought up Alexis, not me.
Kristina: I mean, you're in denial. That's all that I can think of. It is so obvious that you came down here to talk to the doctor and you can't admit it. For some reason, you just can't admit it to me.
Ned: You know, you are so far off base.
Kristina: I don't know what else to think.
Ned: I came down here to see you. To give you these.
Kristina: Oh, God.
Alexis: I'm touched by your concern, but it's misplaced. I like this apartment.
Carly: Yeah, it certainly was convenient for staying close to Sonny and dropping by at a moment's notice, camping out in his living room, but those days are over, Alexis.
Alexis: I'm sure you think so.
Carly: No, I know so. You see, at this point, you're just an embarrassment to Sonny. You're that one-night stand that just refuses to go away. And let's face it, he's got what he wants now and he really doesn't have any more time to throw you any more scraps.
Alexis: Then why are you so threatened, Carly?
Carly: I am just trying to do you a favor and point out the obvious since you somehow seem to have missed the fact that Sonny and I are back together. And then you show up uninvited and interrupt us in a -- well, let's just call it an intimate moment -- and you stand there at the door like a lovesick teenager, yammering on about something that you could have easily left on his answering machine. But I guess you can't take a hint. It's all right, though, because I guess you saw it with your own eyes. Sonny's mine.
Alexis: I'm sure that he would appreciate you talking about him like he's a piece of property. We all know how he loves to be treated like chattel. Let's let him decide, shall we?
Carly: Oh, letís. Because Sonny loves me and I love him and we are back together now, and you are on the outside looking in.
Alexis: Like you were looking in, Carly, the night you drove your car off a cliff? Did you get all the attention that you were craving, that incredibly desperate, transparent cry for sympathy?
Carly: Like I've said it before, I hope you really enjoyed that one night with Sonny in his bed because you will never find your way back there again. There's no room because I am there now.
Jason: If you were anybody else, you would be dead. Sonny let you live because he's loyal. Don't ever speak to anyone again about his business, you understand?
Jason: Yeah? You'd better because next time you won't see me coming. What happened tonight is Sonny's business. You did it to yourself. You never say what happened, you never say how.
Zander: Yeah, I get it.
Elizabeth: Jason? Hey, Jason. Hi. Thought that was you. Were you out for a ride or --
Jason: Uh, no, not this time.
Elizabeth: Oh. That's too bad. I would love to be on your bike right now.
Jason: Yeah, maybe some other time. I got some things to take care of.
Elizabeth: Okay. All right. Will you do me a favor -- the next time you to decide to take your bike out, call me?
Jason: Yeah, no problem.
Elizabeth: Oh, my God -- Zander.
Ned: These are for you. That's why I'm here -- to give them to you.
Kristina: I -- I am so sorry.
Ned: You know, so am I. I don't know we're going to get past this if you won't let us.
Kristina: I mean, I just overreacted. All I heard was you say Alexis' name and I -- oh, my God, I don't even know. I don't know what's wrong with me.
Ned: Well, as long as we're doing true confessions, I have to admit that I do have an overprotective streak when it comes to Alexis. I don't know, maybe I'm just -- it's just a habit.
Kristina: And maybe it's just Sonny.
Ned: Maybe. He has been responsible for hurting a lot of people in my life and I'm a little paranoid. But you know what? Alexis is a grown woman.
Ned: She can make her own decisions; she can make her own mistakes.
Kristina: Well, old habits do die hard.
Ned: You're the one I want to be with, Kristina. I still care about Alexis, I always will, but I'm with you. And if I've said or done anything to make you question that, I'm sorry.
Kristina: Yeah, me, too. So, what do we do now?
Ned: Well, I guess you can always come out to dinner with me.
Ned: Just the two of us? Anywhere you like.
Kristina: Uh -- oh, what about Tibet?
Ned: Tibet. I can do Tibet.
Kristina: I'm kidding.
Ned: Oh, gosh, and I was in the mood for yak burgers.
Ned: How about the Port Charles Grill? Champagne, little crŤme Brule?
Kristina: You are so cute. That sounds delicious. Let me just finish up with the kids in the last ward, all right?
Ned: Okay. Go take care of those kids.
Alexis: Huh. Okay. "A bond is forged well before birth not only between mother and child but, optimally, between father and child, as well. Anecdotal evidence -- suggests that a father's love or absence is a critical factor in child development." Are you aware of these studies? I am. Then you must be aware that fatherless children are more likely to suffer from low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy. Yes or no? Yes. Wouldn't you acknowledge that Sonny Corinthos is a nurturing, loving, and protective parent to his adoptive son, Michael? I certainly acknowledge that Sonny is wonderful with Michael. Then you'd have to believe that he would be a devoted parent to the child that you're carrying. Devotion isn't exactly the same as -- yes or no? Yes, but Sonny Corinthos is a career criminal. Move to strike. Irrelevant. His life and the lives of his family are in constant danger. Objection. Are you aware that Sonny's first wife and child died in a car bomb, and that an equally hideous fate could befall any child that carries the Corinthos name? Objection, Your Honor. Speculation. Are you aware that Sonny could be a ruthless tyrant that mows down anything and everything that stands in his way and that his single-minded methods and his deep-seated control issues could drive him to take my baby and raise it as his own child? Objection to the characterization of the unborn as "my baby." Clearly there are two parents here. One who exterminates his enemies, perceived or otherwise, as casually as other people swat flies. Your Honor, let the record reflect that this witness has insisted for an entire year to her friends, to her family, to anyone who will listen that Sonny Corinthos is an honorable and a decent man, a man that she was proud to call a friend, a close friend. Close enough to get her pregnant. I object. You can't object. And even if you could, it's a little late. I move to strike that from the record, Your Honor. Will you swear before the court that Sonny Corinthos is an amoral monster? Mobster. I said mobster. I never said monster. Your Honor, I demand that you instruct this witness to state categorically for the record her final position as to whether or not she is going to tell Sonny Corinthos that he is the father of her child. Is that a yes or a no?
Alexis: Yes or no?
Alexis: Alexis Davis. I'll be right there.
Tony: Let me see. All right, abdominal, chest, altered L.O.C., Vital signs stable. Where's he going?
Nurse: Trauma 4, and I'll draw blood.
Tony: All right, let's go.
Elizabeth: Hey, Zander, you're going to be fine. Just relax. They're going to check you out, make sure nothing's broken, okay? I'm right here.
Paramedic: Hold on there, Zander.
[Knock on door]
Carly: Hey. You made it. Sonny said that you might have to work tonight.
Jason: No, I got everything finished.
Carly: Good. Sonny called from the car. He said he'll be here in a minute. So what do you think of my house?
Jason: It's nice.
Carly: You said that before, Jason. It's your stock answer for when you don't really care one way or another.
Jason: I care about where you and Michael live. It's a nice house. I mean, it's comfortable. It's good. And I'm sure Michael likes the big back yard.
Carly: Yes, he loves it. Oh, my God, you're going to have to come by during the day because he's going to want to show you this fort that he just built under the house.
Carly: You know, you didn't say how long you were going to stay this time. Stay forever, Jase, please? We all -- we need you so much, Sonny and Michael and especially me. And I know I drive you crazy and it seems like I'm always taking and not giving back much, but, you know, it's just -- you never seem like you need anything, and I need you so much. You know, it was awful when you were away because there is no one like you. No one who understands me.
Jason: You mean no one who puts up with you.
Carly: Oh. Yeah, well, that, too. Want a beer?
Carly: I'll get you one.
Jason: What's up?
Sonny: Where's Carly?
Jason: She's in the kitchen.
Sonny: How'd it go with Zander?
Jason: We had a talk. He understands the rules now.
Carly: What rules? Why were you talking to Zander?
Lila: I thought Edward would be better off sharing E.L.Q. with Skye. I was mistaken.
Jax: So without E.L.Q. to control, Edward turned his aggression on your family, especially A.J. and Courtney.
Jax: So you gave him your proxy to focus his energies elsewhere. That was a generous thought, Lila. It's probably good for the rest of your family, but you didn't consider Skye.
Lila: I love Skye very much, but she has you now.
Jax: I'll do whatever it takes to protect Skye's interests.
Lila: And I'll continue to support my husband.
Jax: Edward doesn't deserve you, Lila.
Lila: Oh, he's a scoundrel, I know. But then so are you, Mr. Jacks.
Jax: Mrs. Quartermaine.
Edward: Get your lips off my wife.
Jax: You know, I don't know why this remarkable woman puts up with you, Edward.
Edward: Because she is my wife and she made a promise to God that she would stick by me no matter what, hmm? So thank you, my dear, for making the situation clear to this reprobate from a land which began as a penal colony.
Jax: You know, you should probably visit, Edward.
Edward: I'll take it from here, dear.
Lila: Don't provoke him, dear. You'll regret it if you do.
Reginald: Hmm? She saved your butt again, huh? Bye.
Edward: See you later, dear.
Jax: I adore your wife. I always have. But that's not going to stop me from removing you from E.L.Q.
Edward: Oh? Do your worst.
Jax: You know, I wonder if you truly understand the gravity of your situation.
Edward: Oh, you underestimate me, Mr. Jacks. These months when you have been dallying with Skye, you know, distracting yourself, losing your edge, I have been covering all my tracks, rendering your so-called evidence against me obsolete.
Jax: You know, Edward, you could have spent your waning years in peace. But you've brought the walls crumbling down on your head.
Edward: I'm not waning. I'm just getting started.
Jax: No, Edward. I'm about to stop you cold. Have a nice night.
Edward: I will grind you into dust, you lightweight. You're no match for me. No one is.
Carly: What's going on?
Sonny: It's just business. You know, nothing for you to be concerned about.
Carly: I thought Zander was out of your business now.
Sonny: Yeah, we just had a few loose ends we had to tie up. But it's good, it's all good, you know?
Michael: Uncle Sonny!
Sonny: Hey, hey, hey, buddy! What are you doing? What's going on?
Sonny: You remember who this guy is?
Michael: Jason. Mommy said he was coming.
Sonny: Yeah. Can you say hi?
Jason: You've gotten big.
Michael: Did you go to Egypt?
Jason: Oh, when?
Michael: When you left. That's where you went last time. Did you go to Egypt again?
Jason: Uh -- no, I went a lot of other places. Thought about you a lot.
Carly: Yeah, and we thought about you, too. And we missed you so much and we're so glad you're back, right? It's like a family.
Ned: So what happened?
Elizabeth: I don't know. I was on my way home from work and I found him on the docks.
Ned: Did Zander say who did it?
Ned: Are the police looking for anyone?
Elizabeth: I didn't call them. I started to, but Zander told me not to. He doesn't want the police involved.
Nurse: You can come in now if you'd like.
Elizabeth: Thank you.
Tony: He's -- he's had what I call a professional beating. All the blows were to the midsection. He probably has some fractured ribs. I'm waiting on some x-rays to come back.
Alexis: How is he?
Ned: Oh, I was just calling you.
Alexis: How's Zander?
Ned: Come on. See for yourself.
Tony: We need to make a police report.
Zander: No. No. No police.
Tony: Would it be better if I contacted Sonny?
Alexis: What happened? Do they know who did this?
Ned: I know.
Monica: I'm glad Emilyís not around to see what's happened to Zander.
Alan: It would break her heart.
Monica: I have to admit, there is a part of me that likes him. Also, there is a bigger part that is very glad Emilyís far away right now. Well --
Jax: Drs. Quartermaine.
Monica: Oh. Hello, Jax.
Jax: I apologize for barging in on you at work, but since this directly affects you and your family, I thought you'd want to know as soon as possible.
Monica: What's Skye done now?
Alan: Why must you assume that Skye is at fault?
Monica: When is Skye not at fault?
Jax: Skye's had her job and her company stolen out from under her by Edward.
Alan: Father kicked Skye out of E.L.Q.?
Jax: You either seem genuinely surprised or you do a good job at covering. Either way, you should be concerned. Edward is provoking me and I have every intention of retaliating.
Alan: Retaliating? How?
Jax: Well, dismantling E.L.Q. springs to mind. Raiding your subsidiaries, devaluating your stock -- you know, the sort of stuff that I do best. The Quartermaines could experience a complete reversal of fortune -- unless you get Edward under control.
Petra: These are the most favorites of the most powerful, virile men in my country. Men like you.
Edward: Oh, oh, my dear, you are really perceptive. Oh.
Petra: Let me explain the menu.
Petra: Ivan the Terrible was convinced that golubtsy -- cabbage rolls --
Petra: Makes you strong.
Petra: And Rasputin? He thought that vareniki sharpens the intellect.
Edward: You know, my dear, I -- I have just far too long been at the mercy of rebellious employees and ungrateful relatives. It's time to change the parameters, to defuse the good and get on with the game.
Petra: And may I ask what you intend to acquire first?
Edward: Well, it's not what, my dear -- oh, thank you -- it's not what but who. My little great-grandson, Michael. The real Quartermaine heir -- or he will be as soon as I can wrestle him free from the pack of thugs who have him now.
Carly: Hey. Dinner almost ready?
Sonny: About five minutes. But, you know, the knives are pathetic. I don't know, they're not holding their edge. Are you running them through the dishwasher, because that's just not --
Carly: Oh, are you going to lecture on how to wash a knife now?
Michael: Are you guys fighting?
Carly: No, sweetie, we're not fighting. Just sometimes when Sonny and I discuss something, we -- we speak in a different tone, but we always love each other.
Michael: Is Uncle Sonny living with us now?
Carly: No, sweetheart.
Sonny: No, we talked about it, Mike, remember? Your mommy loves me and I love her very much, but we're just -- we got to spend some time together to see how well we get along.
Michael: If you guys get along, will we all live together again?
Carly: Oh, we'll see. You know, it's kind of hard to predict the future.
Sonny: No matter what happens to your mother and me, we'll always be a family. And you know what? Us being a family again, it's something I would -- I would really want one day.
Michael: You mean like a wish?
Carly: Yeah. Yeah, it's like a wish, baby. Sometimes wishes come true.
Alexis: You have to at least wait for the facts before you blame it on Sonny.
Ned: Tony offered to call Sonny and Zander refused. Draw your own conclusions.
Alexis: Okay, if a hurricane blew through there right now, would you automatically hold Sonny accountable for that?
Ned: Zander wouldn't call the police, he wouldn't call Sonny. What does that tell you?
Alexis: Zander has had a mistrust for the police officers which predated his relationship with Sonny.
Ned: How far in denial can you possibly hide, Alexis?
Alexis: I'm not hiding anything.
Kristina: Zander Smith. I heard he was just brought in by ambulance. Is he all right?
Tony: His injuries aren't life-threatening, if that's what you mean.
Kristina: Oh, thank God.
Tony: Trauma 4.
Kristina: Thank you.
Tony: That was quick.
Kristina: You know, Zander just has a little too much company right now, so I think I'm going to -- I'm going to come back later.
Tony: Gretchen, could you give me the Port Charles police department, please?
Elizabeth: Hey. I understand why you don't the police involved. It's Sonny. He wouldn't want you to. But don't you think he should know if one of his -- his enemies jumped you? Were the guys after Jason? I saw him right before I found you. Zander -- wait a minute. You -- you told me that you quit working for Sonny. And then you had all that cash, you wouldn't tell me where you got it. Did Jason have something to do with this, Zander? Is he the one that did this to you?
Zander: You're crazy, all right? I -- I fell.
Elizabeth: Just tell me what happened.
Zander: Elizabeth, accidents happen, okay? I fell.
Ned: This is who Sonny is, all right? If Zander messed up and he needed to learn a lesson, Sonny's more than capable of ordering a beating like that.
Alexis: Okay, but this is not the time that I want to debate this. Damn it. I got it, I got it, I got it.
Ned: No, I got --
Alexis: No, thank you very much.
Alexis: I got it.
Jax: Look, I have the highest regard for your family -- Lila in particular -- but if Edward doesn't give up his claim to E.L.Q., then I'll decimate the Quartermaine fortune. I truly hope it doesn't come to that. Good evening.
Alan: He's serious.
Monica: Yeah, I picked up on that.
Alan: The problem is he could make good on his treats and, if he does, we could be faced with bankruptcy. Unless, of course, we convince Father to retire.
Monica: We're going to have to get creative, that's for sure.
Alan: Whatever we have to do.
Jax: Uh-huh. Definitely. You can count me in. Right. Listen, I got to go.
Kristina: Ned -- is still in love with my sister, isn't he?
Jax: Kristina, you know, Nedís not my department. You're going to have to ask him that yourself.
Jax: I got to go.
Kristina: Yeah. Well, that sounded like a yes.
Carly: Okay. All right.
Carly: To our family.
Carly: Yes. No one has to understand us as long as we understand each other.
Sonny: Hear, hear.
Carly: Yes. Cheers.
Sonny: All right.
Leticia: It's time for Michaelís bath.
Michael: Do I have to?
Carly: Yes, you have to.
Sonny: I tell you what -- you go upstairs, get yourself all tucked you in, and I'll read you a little story. Deal?
Sonny: All right. Don't forget to kiss your mama.
Michael: Bye, Jason.
Jason: Bye, Michael.
Carly: All right. I've got another toast to propose.
Sonny: All right.
Carly: Well, come on.
Sonny: All right, all right.
Carly: To Jason's homecoming. Welcome back. It is definitely a sign of good things to come.
Jason: It's good to be home.
Carly: I will get that.
Taggert: Hey. What's up, Mrs. C?
Carly: What are you doing here?
Taggert: Sorry to interrupt the festivities.
Sonny: What do you want, Lieutenant?
Taggert: Well, you know, I'm just here to question you and your associate about the felony assault against Zander Smith.
Alexis: Zander, I want you to tell me what happened. I want to know who did it. I want to know if you can identify them in a lineup. Was there more than one? Did he tell you what happened?
Elizabeth: No. No, not much. You know what -- I'll be back. I'll be back.
Nurse: Excuse me. Your friend dropped these.
Ned: Oh, thank you.
Nurse: You're welcome.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Laura: My new engagement ring is gone.
Lucky: I'll always care about you, Elizabeth, always.
Taggert: Zander's testimony is going to cause a lot of problems for Mr. Corinthos and Mr. Morgan.
Carly: I want to go see Zander.
Alexis: Did Sonny have someone do this to you?
