General Hospital Transcript Tuesday 6/25/02
>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Nikolas: By this time next week, I want her to be positioned as the next supermodel, okay?
Roy: If it hadn't been for you, this money would be on its way to the nearest garbage dump.
Man: They found the money.
Benny: Roscoe's gone but his people arenít.
Zander: They took Elizabeth.
Jason: Who took her?
Zander: Two guys. They shoved her into a car. And one of them used to work for Roscoe.
Jason: Let's go.
Zander: We're right back where we started. You've dragged us all over Port Charles all night and we're no closer to finding Elizabeth. You got any more great ideas?
Jason: Yeah -- go away.
Zander: Forget it. I'm through taking orders from you.
Jason: Sonny's got people all over the city. He'll find her.
Zander: All right, it's just 11:00. We can still get there.
Jason: No, no, no. You're not going anywhere.
Lucky: I was on my way to the studio to work on some product shots. What's going on?
Laura: Well, I was hoping you could tell me, Lucky. What are these?
Lucky: Right. Gia's stand-in.
Laura: Yeah. What happened to Gia?
Lucky: Nikolas happened to Gia. Apparently, the prince wants to make her a star.
Nikolas: So, where should we go first, huh?
Gia: Nikolas, it's totally sweet of you to take me shopping, but, frankly, you'll only slow me down. You are hopeless as a retail consumer.
Nikolas: Gee, thank you. Come on. I thought I would keep you company.
Gia: I thought you had a conference call this morning.
Nikolas: They can reach me on my cell, right?
Gia: Take care of your business. I will be fine alone. Right now I'm starving.
Waiter: Are we ready?
Nikolas: Yes, actually. The lady will have fresh melon and coffee, and eggs benedict for me, please. Thank you.
Gia: Just out of curiosity, you know, before I leave you and get a table for one where I can order what I want, why did you do that?
Nikolas: I just -- I don't know. I think that maybe you should eat a little healthier.
Felicia: $1 million. College fund for the girls. I could pay off all my credit cards. I could donate money to the homeless, environmental issues, the African wildlife foundation.
Roy: How generous. And you'd keep nothing for yourself?
Felicia: Maybe a massage at the spa that I've been reading about in Belize -- the one that costs $2,000 a day. I could go for a couple of months. Can you imagine? All that money, free and clear. All the things that you could do, all the problems that would just disappear.
Roy: To be replaced by the new problems ahead that money brings.
Felicia: Roy, doesn't $1 million even tempt you? What if it's not a setup?
Roy: Yeah, two chances of that -- fat and slim. Take this, will you?
Felicia: Oh, my gosh. Your generosity -- it's overwhelming. I think I'll make reservations. Maybe I'll get as far as the New Jersey Turnpike.
Roy: If you're careful, you can make it to Pennsylvania. I want you to give it to Mac and see if he can trace it. If it's stolen, we can find out from where. It might help us nail down who left it.
Felicia: And why they left it.
Roy: Yeah, maybe we'll get lucky. Okay? Good.
Felicia: Where are you going?
Roy: I got some things to do.
Felicia: Like what?
Roy: Nothing big. I'll call you later, okay?
Bobbie: Hey, Felicia.
Felicia: Oh, good morning.
Bobbie: I thought I saw Roy out here.
Felicia: Yeah, you did.
Bobbie: Oh. You two working on a case?
Jason: Look, you don't open your mouth to anyone about this.
Zander: Who the hell died and left you in charge?
Jason: Whoever took Elizabeth is trying to get to me. She's probably still alive but she won't be for long, so you need to stay out of the way.
Zander: Okay, I am the one who told you Elizabeth got kidnapped. I also gave you your only lead.
Jason: What? You said one of the guys who grabbed her maybe used to work with Roscoe? That's not a lead, Zander, it's a theory. I watched the guy. He hasn't even left his house. So unless you can give me something on the second kidnapper, then you've done all you can for Elizabeth by telling me what you saw. Now just leave it alone.
Zander: What, and trust you to save her? Forget it. You might get a call from Sonny and have to go pick up his dry cleaning. I'm going with you to that pier.
Jason: No. No, you're not. They arranged a meeting at a public place. Why? Because they're going to be watching, and if you show up, it's not going to happen.
Zander: What if it's a trap?
Jason: They would have dropped me already if that's what they wanted.
Zander: And what if you are wrong, huh? What if they kill you as a message to Sonny? What happens to Elizabeth then?
Elizabeth: Hello? Can anyone hear me?
Elizabeth: Oh, yuck. Right. Oh, my God. Oh, God, come on.
Felicia: Roy and I have been working on a couple of cases together. Finding Helena with Luke, for one, and -- we're just friends, you know.
Bobbie: Felicia, this has nothing to do with me, if that's what you're thinking. And I am long past any romantic feelings for Roy, but I am concerned about you.
Felicia: I'm the last person you should worry about. Don't worry about me.
Bobbie: It's just that I know Roy pretty well. And he's good looking and charming when he wants to be and awfully persuasive, but he also isn't very trustworthy.
Felicia: I'm not interested in a romantic involvement with Roy, Bobbie.
Bobbie: Okay. It really isn't any of my business, but I am concerned about you, and Roy is complicated.
Felicia: Yeah, he is.
Bobbie: Even to himself, I think. And he's made some questionable decisions.
Felicia: With Melissa. I know.
Bobbie: Actually, I was referring to what happened with Sonny. Now, I'm not saying that Carly was blameless, but if Roy hadn't made it so easy for her to betray Sonny to the authorities -- well, let's just say Roy didn't need much convincing to turn his back on a friend.
Bobbie: I'll be right in. I'm sorry. Excuse me.
Felicia: Mac. I got to call Mac. Hi. It's me. I know this is spur-of-the-moment, but I need your help. Can you come over to Kellyís?
Man: Lucky? Is Lucky around?
Sarah: No, just me.
Man: I could have sworn we had a shoot today.
Sarah: As a matter of fact, Lucky did send me to tell you that the shoot's been postponed and he'll call you.
Man: Yeah, great. Whatever.
Sarah: All right. See you.
Lucky: Nikolas bought Gia that "Tempo" cover.
Laura: That's impossible, Lucky. Nobody can buy a national magazine cover.
Lucky: Hey, unless you're Nikolas Cassadine, apparently.
Laura: But he knows that Gia's on contract to me.
Lucky: Do you think that he cares? "Gia's too good to be on some perfume ad on page 42." That's pretty much a quote.
Laura: I don't understand. We're launching a whole new product line. I've constructed the entire campaign around Gia.
Lucky: I know. I made that clear to Nikolas.
Laura: But, Lucky, I've -- I've prepaid. I pre-sold the ads.
Lucky: I know. Tell it to the prince.
Laura: I think I'm going to have to tell it to them both.
Lucky: Well, I hope you get somewhere with them. You know, at least Gia was somewhat accommodating. I actually feel sorry for her. You know, Nikolas may be paying her way, but Gia's the one who's going to pay. Let's just hope she can afford the price.
Nikolas: So, how is it?
Gia: It needs a side of French toast.
Nikolas: There is nothing wrong with eating a little healthy -- or saving room for dinner in New York City.
Gia: Excuse me?
Nikolas: Well, yeah. What do you think this shopping trip was all about? I have four meetings lined up for you over the next two days, three of which are with major corporate sponsors and one is with Major Models.
Gia: What? Nikolas, they're the biggest agency in New York.
Nikolas: Yes, they are.
Gia: Oh, my God, you are the most wonderful man and the most amazing fiancť.
Nikolas: Thank you.
Gia: Thank you.
Laura: Hi. I hear you two have been awfully busy lately. Unfortunately, no one bothered to clear it with me. You remember me? I'm the one with her signature right over yours on the contract that we both signed. I think we have a little problem here.
Zander: They're after you and Sonny. They know that you are both close to Elizabeth.
Jason: All right, listen to me. She's a leverage. They need to keep her alive until they get what they want. I'm going to the pier, you stay out of it. I'll let you know if there's anything you can do.
Zander: You screw this up, she gets hurt, you're going to end up the exact same way.
Elizabeth: Oh, God.
Elizabeth: Oh, no. Darn it. Come on.
Elizabeth: Ouch! Come on.
Man: Accommodations aren't much. You'll get used to it.
Elizabeth: What is this?
Man: What? Place? Home for now.
Elizabeth: What do you want with me?
Man: With you? Nothing.
Elizabeth: You better listen and you better listen good because this -- this is not a good idea. People will be looking for me. I'm sure they already are.
Man: You better hope Jason Morgan is one of those people.
Elizabeth: Oh, no. Oh, no, no. You -- you don't want trouble with Jason.
Man: Well, that's why you're here -- to keep things trouble-free. So, I'm going to tell you what to do, and you -- you're going to do it.
Nikolas: I'm sure we can work something out.
Gia: The last thing I want is to cause any problems.
Nikolas: Gia, like I said, I'm sure my mother and I can -- we can come to some agreement.
Laura: Look, I'm willing to be accommodating, Gia, but if you don't live up to your commitment to Deception, you will be in breach of contract and I will take legal action.
Gia: You know what? I think I'm going to get a head start on that shopping.
Nikolas: No, please, stay. This is your career we're talking about, your future.
Gia: No. You know, why don't you two discuss this on your own. I trust you both. I'm sure you'll -- you'll get it together with everyone's best interest in mind.
Nikolas: All right. I will catch up with you when we're through.
Gia: Okay. Take all the time you need.
Nikolas: And you buy something special, something that will impress the people we'll be seeing in New York, okay?
Gia: Okay. Bye, Laura.
Laura: What the hell is going on here?
Nikolas: I love Gia, and I would do anything for her. It's what she deserves.
Laura: And what about me? Why are you doing this to me, Nikolas?
Lucky: Hello? Is anybody here? Hey, what's going on here?
Sarah: Welcome to your first session.
Lucky: What? First session? Sarah?
Sarah: I'm afraid we're wasting time.
Lucky: We are?
Sarah: Find your light, please.
Lucky: Wait, I'm modeling? No. I don't think so.
Sarah: Uh-huh. What, are you scared?
Lucky: No. I'm just -- I'm a little embarrassed, maybe.
Sarah: It's just you and me, Lucky. First I think we need to do something about your wardrobe.
Lucky: What's wrong with it?
Sarah: Why don't you take off your shirt? Come on.
Sarah: Both of them, please. Do you trust me?
Sarah: Okay. Come on. Now close your eyes. Imagine you're alone. There's no one else around for miles. Just you and me. Let yourself go, Lucky. All you hear is the music. It starts to rain hard. Water falls over your face. Now you enter an empty barn. There's a lantern burning, and you see her. Open your eyes.
Mac: Well, if it is counterfeit, it's the best I've ever seen. Where did you get it?
Felicia: It's a case I'm working on.
Mac: How much cash is involved?
Felicia: A lot.
Mac: How much information are you leaving out of this story?
Felicia: Has a large sum of money been reported missing lately?
Mac: Not that I know of. Nice dodge, by the way. Anything else you can tell me?
Felicia: A client of mine unexpectedly came into some cash -- innocently, I believe -- but he wanted to check its origins just to be on the safe side. So I thought I would ask you for your help sooner rather than later.
Mac: I can -- I can run a trace on the serial number, then I'll check with robbery/homicide. You know what you're doing, right?
Felicia: Oh, of course I do.
Mac: Are you sure you're okay?
Felicia: I'm fine.
Mac: Because I'd hate to see you get caught up in someone else's adventure and pulled away from what really matters to you, Felicia.
Felicia: For the record, this has nothing to do with Luke Spencer.
Mac: Yeah, well, whoever it is, you be careful. Money does funny things to people, even between friends. I'll see what I can find out, but you promise to call me if things get sticky.
Felicia: Yes. Thank you.
Jason: Oh, Elizabeth, are you okay?
Elizabeth: So far.
Jason: Where are you?
Elizabeth: Jason, it's a trap! They made me call you! Please, please, be careful! Jason --
Jason: Elizabeth? Elizabeth?
Man: We'll call again in an hour. Next time, follow instructions -- be alone -- and maybe she'll live.
Jason: Just tell me what you want.
Jason: I told you to stay away.
Zander: No. I don't take orders from you. You have done nothing but screw up. You got me thrown out of Sonny's organization, now you're going to pay.
Man: I thought you were smarter than that. Too bad, because stupid people get hurt.
Elizabeth: Oh, then you ought to be pretty scared because you can't outsmart Jason or Sonny.
Man: Oh, well, you better hope Morgan can follow instructions this time -- like being at that pay phone in an hour. Your life depends on it.
Elizabeth: I'm not afraid of you.
Man: One hour, little girl, Morgan gets to decide what you're worth to him. Now, you better pray he cares enough to do what I want. Otherwise, you're never leaving this place.
Elizabeth: Go to hell!
Man: You're already there, baby.
Jason: I don't have time for this.
Zander: Who cares? I got nothing but time, thanks to you. You took my life, Carly uses me, Sonny has you beating me half to death, and Elizabeth will end up in your bed just like Carly. You know, I don't know what it is. Maybe they pity you; maybe they like guys that aren't too bright. And as soon as I'm done with you, I'm going to go after Sonny and anybody else who gets in my way.
Jason: All right, now, you're going to stay down because this is over. I know what you're trying to pull, and it's not going to work.
Zander: Yes, it can. If I can get in and they think I'm against Sonny, maybe I can get in to Elizabeth --
Jason: Shut up!
Taggert: Hold it! Hold it! Get up -- slowly. Back off. Back off. Both of you, you're under arrest.
Lucky: You know what, Sarah? We can't do this.
Sarah: There's no reason to feel guilty anymore.
Lucky: No, no, it's not that. You know, my lighting guy is somewhere around here right now.
Sarah: No, he's not. I told him to go home. He was wasting his time anyway.
Lucky: Yeah, well --
Sarah: And then suddenly this wonderful idea just came into my head.
Lucky: Well, it is a wonderful idea, but you know what? I got work to do. I got reshoots and deadlines and all sorts of stuff.
Sarah: Wait a minute. Don't tell me Elizabeth never surprised you like this.
Lucky: Like this? No.
Sarah: Yeah, she never really was all that spontaneous. Look, we can't keep hiding what we feel. Okay? I don't care who knows anymore. I want people to know. Don't you?
Lucky: Well, yeah. I mean --
Sarah: Okay. Then I want us to start spending time together as a couple. Isn't that what people do? And I was thinking of maybe inviting your mom to come out to dinner with us.
Lucky: I don't think she's ready for that -- yet. I mean, ready for that yet.
Sarah: Okay. Then for now we'll just make it about you and me.
Gia: Lucky? Oh, my God. Don't you two ever do anything else?
Nikolas: Gia has the potential to go all the way, all right? You know that.
Laura: Yes, I do. That's why she's my signature model.
Nikolas: I just think that she should be moving up to the next level, going international.
Laura: Look, deception's the one who gave her her big break. We've invested a lot of time and a lot of money in her. Why would she leave us in the lurch now?
Nikolas: Now, wait a second. I am not advising Gia to breach her contract. What I am asking of you is to release her from being exclusive, allow her to be free to model for other companies and other designers.
Laura: Is this what Gia wants?
Nikolas: Well, Gia -- Gia doesn't really have experience in business, I do.
Laura: I see.
Nikolas: Look, the point is just please make this easy, make it simple. Release her from her exclusivity.
Laura: You want simple? Fine. Forget it. The contract is what it is. You try to change it, you're in breach.
Nikolas: So you're going to try to hold Gia's career hostage? You know what? That's fine. Go ahead -- sue. I will pay you off and be done with the whole thing, okay? Okay -- wait a second, okay? I'm sorry. I am. I -- I don't mean to treat this as business because it isn't. Will you sit, please? This isn't just about Gia. It's about Lucky, too. As you know, I have made choices that have affected our relationship and it's created a lot of distance and I feel like I'm on the outside looking in, you know? It's hard.
Laura: You're not on the outside. You're my son. You always have been and you always will be.
Nikolas: I know. I'll see you later.
Zander: Get your hands off me. Get off me! Get off of me. You know you got nowhere to go with this.
Mac: What's going on?
Taggert: A little criminal battery, disturbing the peace.
Mac: All right. Sit them both down.
Taggert: It'll be my pleasure. Let's go, big guy. You're in my house now.
Zander: Oh, yeah?
Taggert: You want to play? Playing with the wrong guy, buddy.
Zander: You're really strong, aren't you? With those cuffs, right? I have a right to an attorney.
Taggert: Shut up.
Zander: Why the hell didn't you go along with me?
Jason: Because Elizabeth is in enough trouble. She's going to be in a lot more if I don't get back to that phone.
Mac: All right. Smith, you can go, as soon as you press charges against Morgan. I'm thinking maybe a second assault by the same guy would settle your mind a little.
Zander: I'd love to. But I canít. I went after him. I threw the first punch, he didnít.
Gia: Why would you leave the door unlocked?
Sarah: Why wouldn't you knock?
Gia: Excuse me? I work here.
Lucky: Oh, you do?
Gia: That's why I came down here -- to talk to you about the shoot. But obviously you found much better use for your studio here. So don't let me interrupt.
Sarah: A little too late.
Lucky: Gia, wait a second. No, listen, I'm sorry, I have to take of this right now. Can I call you later?
Sarah: Yeah. Sure. Do that.
Gia: I'm sorry.
Lucky: For what, exactly, this time?
Gia: For all the trouble that I caused by taking the "Tempo" shoot. But it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Lucky: No, Gia, it fell into your lap. It was really easy, and all you did was think about yourself and nobody else.
Gia: You're right. I did it for me, but I earned it without anyone's help. Do you have any idea what that feels like?
Lucky: Yeah, yeah, I have some idea what that feels like.
Gia: I just got caught up in the excitement and the rush of it all, okay? So -- so sue me. No, strike that -- don't.
Lucky: Are you doing this for yourself, or are you doing this for Nikolas?
Gia: Look, that's partly why I'm here. I know things are weird between you and your brother, and now it's making trouble for Nikolas and your mother.
Lucky: Yeah? Well, whose fault is that?
Gia: Will you just listen to me for one minute? Look, your mother gave me my start. She gave me everything. She made all of this possible. I owe her. And I owe you, too.
Lucky: Well, let's see here -- the ad campaign is past due, the replacement model sucked, and my mom already booked the ad space.
Gia: Well, then we need to do the shoot right now. Look, I mean it. I want to do anything that I can to make everyone get past this. How about you?
Bobbie: Hi. May I see a show of hands?
Laura: Oh. The engagement ring all present and accounted for.
Bobbie: It's so nice to see you smiling again.
Laura: Thank you. It's nice to be smiling again. Everything is finally working out. I even talked to Rick Webber, and he agreed to come back to Port Charles to give me away again.
Bobbie: Oh, my goodness. Come and sit down. Tell me all about it.
Laura: Well, you know, I just gave him a call. He's in Arizona now. And I was surprised. He said that he'd love to, said he was honored.
Bobbie: Oh, that's fantastic.
Laura: It really is. And I solved the mystery of my wedding dress.
Bobbie: Where was it?
Laura: It was in the garage attic of the old house that we lived in.
Bobbie: Why didn't we think of that?
Laura: Yeah. Right. Unfortunately, the dress is just completely destroyed.
Bobbie: Oh, Laura, I'm sorry.
Laura: The wedding veil was okay, though. I might use a little piece of that on my new dress.
Bobbie: So all those signs and omens weren't as bad as you thought.
Laura: Oh, okay, okay. I have to admit you were right. I was overreacting a little bit. Everything's fine. Luke and I are together. Everything's okay.
Bobbie: You so belong together. Some things never change.
Laura: And maybe some things change a lot and that's why you can't remember them. You know, when I was in the attic of -- the garage attic of the old house, I was going through all this stuff -- you know, mostly childhood stuff. It was weird. I felt like I turned around and a whole lifetime just went by. And some of it I can remember vividly. And then other stuff is just gone.
Roy: Hi. How's it going?
Felicia: I spoke with Mac.
Roy: Oh, yeah?
Felicia: He's running a trace on the money.
Roy: Okay. I assume you kept details to a minimum?
Felicia: I told him it was for a client, which is technically true.
Felicia: I really don't like deceiving him.
Roy: I wasn't trying to put you in an awkward position.
Felicia: No. No, no, no. You -- no, that's fine. I just can't stop thinking about all that money, you know, stashed away in your apartment. I was going to ask to go over there and check and see if it was still in the closet.
Roy: Oh, yeah? Well, that would have been a wasted trip.
Felicia: The money's gone?
Roy: I put it in a safe-deposit box. I don't want to have to think about it while I'm -- while I'm gone.
Felicia: Where you going?
Roy: Well, I'm going to do a little investigating on my own. I'm going to check out some people I used to know. It occurs to me that somebody could be setting me up here as payback for one of the jobs I did undercover.
Felicia: That's worth investigating.
Roy: Good, I'm glad you understand.
Roy: This is the key to the box.
Felicia: You want me to hold on to this?
Roy: Yeah. I need someone I can trust. Luke's all involved with his own stuff right now, but I've seen you in action and I know that you'll come through for me, so -- I'll -- I'll be back soon and I'll check in if I can.
Felicia: Be careful.
Roy: Yeah. Thanks.
Bobbie: Hey, Sarah.
Bobbie: Did you ever find Lucky?
Sarah: I did, yes. Thanks. Mrs. Spencer, do you have a minute?
Bobbie: I got to finish my flowers, so I'll catch up with you.
Sarah: I'm sorry, this is a little awkward for me.
Laura: What is it?
Sarah: I've just been trying to find the right time to talk to you about Lucky.
Sarah: Um -- I -- I know you wanted him with Elizabeth and I'm okay with that, really.
Laura: What I want is for my son to be happy.
Sarah: So do I. I love my sister. I want you to know that. I would never do anything to hurt her.
Laura: What are you trying to say, Sarah?
Sarah: Since it seems Elizabeth has moved on with Jason Morgan now, I would just hate for anyone to judge Lucky over this. He's going through a really difficult time right now, and it worries me because he's so isolated. He needs all the support he can get.
Waitress: Excuse me. Your order's ready.
Sarah: Thank you. I'm sorry, I -- I have to go. Thank you.
Bobbie: What was that about?
Laura: You know, I'm not quite sure.
Gia: Okay, I'm all set.
Lucky: I can't get ahold of my lighting guy, so I'm just going to have to make do. That is if you're still sure about this.
Gia: I'm sure.
Lucky: Good. Because I don't want you backing out halfway through this because Nikolas has other plans.
Gia: You know, I can always just walk right now.
Lucky: No, no, no. Let's -- let's do it.
Lucky: All right. All right. Take a deep breath. Good.
Gia: Tell me what you want me to do.
Nikolas: What is this?
Lucky: Well, Gia has decided to honor her contractual agreement. She's doing the right thing. It figures that you wouldn't recognize it.
Nikolas: Gia, I don't know how you let Lucky talk you into this, but we are leaving right now.
Taggert: You know, I thought you were smart, Mr. Smith. I figured you could think.
Zander: What I do is none of your business.
Taggert: See that? You really can't think. What you do is Sonny's business. Now, when are you going to realize that?
Mac: Forget it, Taggert, we'll hold them both.
Zander: Wait a second. Why? I already told you that I did it. You got nothing to hold him on.
Taggert: Oh, I don't know. What do you think? Disturbing the peace? That'll work for now, huh?
Mac: What's the problem, Jason? Why all the activity on the street? Somebody threatening Sonny? No comment, as usual.
Jason: I want my phone call.
Taggert: "I want my phone call." Really? You know what, Mr. Morgan? We want some answers. Now, what's going on? We got a gangland war happening out there, huh? What's going on, anger boy?
Elizabeth: Come on! Somebody help me! Help me, please, anybody! Can you hear me? No. Come on.
Zander: Just let him go.
Taggert: He's got someplace to be?
Mac: Hold them both for 24 hours.
Zander: The hell with that! You get my lawyer on the phone. You call Alexis Davis right now!
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Nikolas: You don't need this shoot.
Gia: I've made my decision.
Sonny: Scared me to death taking all those tests.
Carly: Well, it's over.
Taggert: Why are you so anxious to get back out on the street? Is there somebody waiting for you?
Man: You all right?
