>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Roy: I'd never seen that money before in my life.
Jason: He's stringing you along, Felicia. That's the way Roy DiLucca works.
Man: Daisy. I thought that was you.
Sonny: Sometimes you got to say what you got to say when you have the chance.
Carly: Jase, go away. You don't want any part of this. I'm always going to love Sonny.
Felicia: And it still needs a paint job.
Roy: Vivo la fiesta aqui en la casa de Roy.
Felicia: In other words, let's salsa.
Roy: Oh, como no?
[Salsa music plays]
Roy: Show me, girl. Show me. Wow, you make that thing that you do and then you show me. Then you show me. Then you show me this --
Roy: And you show me that. And then you come over here and you come over here and then you fall down like this! Oh, my God!
Felicia: You're good at that. Where'd you learn how to do that?
Roy: I lived in Miami for a while working undercover.
Felicia: Don't tell me you didn't wear those big baggy suits with those weird colors.
Roy: I wore all that stuff, I did all that stuff, but it was all a lie. It was just an assignment. Now this is really the good life.
Felicia: Yes. Champagne and caviar.
Roy: Champagne, caviar, a new apartment!
Felicia: Yeah, who needs this dump, huh?
Roy: That's right, I belong in a penthouse somewhere.
Felicia: In Manhattan or Los Angeles?
Roy: Try the Harbor View Towers.
Felicia: Why? Because you want to be like Sonny?
A.J.: I can't believe you got called in tonight.
Courtney: Well, I won't have to work at the bank forever.
A.J.: You know, what kind of life is this for you? You work at Kellyís all day and you work half the night typing numbers at some bank.
Courtney: It's all right.
A.J.: No, it's not. No, you should be out having a good time, you know -- bright lights, dancing.
Courtney: All I need is you.
A.J.: Well -- now if I could just chase off all the drunks who call you Daisy --
Courtney: Would you just forget it?
A.J.: Yeah, what's up with that guy? He wouldn't let it go. I almost popped him.
Courtney: Well, then it's a good thing that we came home.
A.J.: So where do you think he recognized you from? What, work or something?
Carly: You heard me?
Sonny: Yeah, every word.
Sonny: You asked me here. I know I'm a little early, but --
Carly: I mean it. Get out! Go bother somebody who cares, maybe your attorney.
Sonny: I thought we were going to get past that, Carly --
Carly: Yeah, you'd like that, wouldn't you?
Sonny: I know I've caused you a lot of pain, but I promise you I'll make it up to you. Come here.
Carly: Get --
Sonny: Whoa --
Carly: Get away from me, you miserable pig!
Elizabeth: What's wrong?
Zander: The door.
Elizabeth: Oh --
Zander: You want me to close it?
Elizabeth: Yes. Yes.
Elizabeth: Thank you.
Zander: Elizabeth --
Elizabeth: No. Just don't say anything.
Jason: Where's Benny?
Man: On a call with Morales' people.
Jason: There's a problem with the shipment.
Man: They're delaying delivery until we agree on an alternate landing site.
Jason: Did Benny explain to morals that the difficulties with Pier 52 were temporary?
Man: Benny's been explaining for the past half-hour. That's why I'm here. He wants to know what kind of guarantees he can make.
Jason: All right, tell Benny to assure morals that the landing site is safe and that the problems with Pier 52 will be cleared up soon enough.
Felicia: Oh, come on, Roy. You bought Pier 52 when you knew Sonny wanted it. You hired the same kid that he hired. And now you want to buy a place at the Harbor Vview Towers? What's next? Limousines and bodyguards?
Roy: Close your eyes, will you?
Felicia: Did you not hear what I just said?
Roy: I heard it all.
Felicia: Then why do you want me to close my eyes?
Roy: Trust me. Just give me 30 seconds max and then you'll understand everything.
Felicia: This better be good.
Roy: Okay. Now, imagine yourself in my penthouse.
Felicia: Hmm. Hmm.
Roy: Okay, you're way above the water; you're looking down on the whole world. You can see almost all the way to New York City or Canada.
Felicia: Oh, is that possible to see both at the same time?
Roy: Well, it's a really, really big penthouse.
Felicia: Oh, wraparound windows.
Roy: Exactly. And everyone else is far away, but you -- you belong up here where it's quiet and --
Roy: Beautiful and clean.
Felicia: It's clean?
Roy: The windows wash themselves.
Felicia: Oh, how does that work?
Roy: Who cares? You can afford them. Now, imagine the terrace --
Felicia: What about the guys on the scaffold?
Felicia: The guys that wash the windows.
Roy: Well, who needs them? Go to the terrace --
Felicia: Well, what about those poor guys? They have their families, they don't have money, they're out of work.
Roy: You pay them off.
Felicia: Is that legal?
Roy: You pay them off and go to the terrace, okay?
Felicia: Okay. All right, I'm with you. I'm at the terrace.
Roy: Now picture the terrace.
Felicia: Took you long enough to get me there, though.
Roy: The whole city is at your feet. Lights are sparkling along the river as far as you can see, just like the diamonds on your throat.
Felicia: Oh, nice touch.
Roy: Thank you. And from my terrace, you are the power, you can do anything. And nothing touches you except what you want.
Felicia: It's a nice dream, isn't it?
Roy: Years ago when I'd close up the disco, some nights I'd walk along the docks. Harbor View wasn't even built yet, but I'd imagine what it would be like to own everything you could see, to be way up in some building looking down on some poor fool taking a stroll to nowhere in the dead of night.
Felicia: You've always wanted money, haven't you?
Roy: I've been close to this before. But never this close. And never with anyone like you. Share this dream with me.
Felicia: It's a long way down from that terrace.
Roy: Don't worry. I won't let anyone fall.
Courtney: Like I told you before, I -- I probably saw that guy at Kellyís or something. I -- I can't remember. I mean, all the faces just kind of go by in a blur.
A.J.: Because you work too hard.
Courtney: I just try to be nice to everybody.
A.J.: I know and it's taking its toll on you.
Courtney: Well, we'll be fine once your checks start coming in.
A.J.: What about now, huh?
Courtney: Now I have to get to work.
A.J.: Ugh. Come on, it's late, you're tired, and I'm sure the last thing you want to do is go to work right now, right?
Courtney: You can't even imagine.
A.J.: Well, why don't you call them back and ask for the night off?
Courtney: A.J., I just got the job. I can't call in sick.
A.J.: But you feel terrible.
Courtney: They won't care.
A.J.: Come on. Tell them you might make -- I don't know -- an entry error that would bring the financial world to its knees. Come on.
Courtney: They don't want to hear that, believe me.
A.J.: I will call some place, make a nice, quiet reservation for dinner.
Courtney: We can't afford to eat out.
A.J.: Then I'll order something in, cheap. We can open a bag of chips for all I care, really. I just want to be with you, that's all.
Courtney: I'll see what I can do.
A.J.: Now you're talking.
Courtney: It probably won't even work.
A.J.: I can't wait to hear this.
Courtney: Wait. You -- you can't stay in the room.
A.J.: Oh, come on. Come on. I've never heard anyone call in sick before.
Courtney: You'll mess me up.
A.J.: What? All you have to do is cough a couple of times, tell them you're running a fever, right?
Courtney: Yeah, well, if they catch on, I could get fired on the spot.
A.J.: Really? That's the way it works?
Courtney: Sometimes, especially when it's a new job.
A.J.: Oh. I keep forgetting you're a terrible liar.
Courtney: Just go in the other room, okay?
Courtney: And I will know if you're listening.
A.J.: I won't listen.
Courtney: Please don't.
A.J.: I'll stay in the room, I promise.
Mr. Coleman: Yeah?
Courtney: Mr. Coleman?
Mr. Coleman: Where the hell are you?
Courtney: I'm exhausted.
Mr. Coleman: No, you mean you're late. Get over here.
Courtney: I won't be any good.
Mr. Coleman: Yeah, you will if you want to keep this job.
Courtney: Can't I work a longer shift tomorrow?
Mr. Coleman: I'm already running one girl behind. At least 10 guys have asked for Daisy and that's just getting started.
Courtney: Can't you just tell them that I will be there tomorrow?
Mr. Coleman: Look, I'm a businessman. We have a business deal. You come through on your end, we're fine. If you don't, your husband goes to jail for D.U.I. It's up to you, sweetheart.
Courtney: A.J.? The coast is clear.
A.J.: Well? Can you spend the night with me, or what? Hmm?
Sonny: You're in love with me, Carly.
Carly: Not anymore.
Sonny: You can't help yourself. Come on.
Carly: Why would I love you when you only love me when it's convenient? Or when you can't find anybody who's better or smarter or can give you a whole bunch of babies!
Sonny: You know what? Oh, the babies. I was going to --
Carly: Don't, don't, don't, don't, donít. Don't even say that it doesn't matter because -- you know what? -- I know that it does. And don't tell me that you love me and that everything's going to be the way it was before because it never can be, Sonny. You know what? Do me a favor. Don't say anything to me ever again because I don't ever want to see you again.
Sonny: Then why'd you invite me here?
Carly: Why did you listen at the door?
Sonny: Because you were crying!
Carly: I was not.
Sonny: Why can you tell Jason what's in your heart and you can't tell me?
Carly: Oh, you want to know what's in my heart?
Sonny: Yes. Yes.
Carly: Okay, I'm going to tell you what's in my heart. I don't ever want to see your smug, arrogant, lying face ever again.
Sonny: Oh, come on. You know that's not true.
Carly: Yes, it is. Get out.
Sonny: You know that's not what you want, so why are you saying --
Carly: You want to know what I want, Sonny?
Sonny: Yeah. What do you want?
Carly: I don't want to love you anymore, okay, because it costs too much and I'm tired of paying for it. I'm done. I do not love you anymore. Sonny, what's it going to take to get rid of you? Please tell me. Would it help if you stumbled in on me and Jason in bed? Because maybe you'd get the message then. Maybe you would feel betrayed and you'd stand by your window and you'd suffer.
Sonny: You really don't want to be with Jason. Don't give me that --
Carly: I wanted to be with Jason before I ever knew his name, before you started looking down your nose at me. And when you finally did, you called me a slut. Remember that?
Sonny: I was wrong.
Carly: Oh, you sure about that? You sure? Maybe you just forgot who you're dealing with here.
Sonny: Not for a second.
Carly: Who stole her mother's husband for revenge and then shot the jerk in open court? Hmm? Who married A.J. so she could be close to Jason? Who nearly sent you to prison more than once and turned you in to the Feds? Forget the fact that I was trying to save your life. And if you tell me -- if you tell me that you forgive me, so help me God, I will --
Sonny: You love me. You do crazy things. I love you. I -- you know, I can deal with it.
Carly: Oh, you think so?
Carly: Oh, okay. Well, then how about this, then? You know when you thought I was dead when my car went over the cliff, after I found you and your skanky attorney in bed? Well, I did wake up in that cabin like I told you. But when I found out I was missing after I read that in the paper, I decided to stay missing a little bit longer so you could suffer and you could hurt just like I hurt.
Sonny: You think I didn't know that?
Courtney: So I'm beat. So I want to stay home. I just have to get over it and go to work, that's all.
A.J.: I'm worried about you.
Courtney: I made a commitment, A.J. I -- the bank really needs the extra help, and we need the money.
A.J.: I really wish my new job paid more.
Courtney: Well, when they see how great you are, you're going to get the biggest raise ever.
A.J.: Hmm. You know, I used to buy cranes for the harbor. I never imagined myself driving a forklift on the docks, you know?
Courtney: Well, we all do things that -- that we can't imagine. You just shut yourself down and you do it.
A.J.: You're amazing.
Courtney: When we get back on our feet, I'll quit.
A.J.: Yeah, right. By then, your boss will know how great you are and never let you go.
Courtney: I'll be home as soon as I can, okay?
A.J.: Hey. I really miss you at night.
Courtney: I miss you, too.
A.J.: It's amazing. Everyone said that I was a mistake, that we'd never make it, but we're showing them, aren't we? We hit bottom and now we're -- we're on our way back up again.
Courtney: Yeah, well, we won't be if I don't get out of here. I'm late.
A.J.: I love you.
Courtney: I love you, too. See you later.
Roy: Damn. Just -- yeah?
Man: I have bad news.
Roy: This is not a great time.
Man: You purchased the property on our orders with our money.
Roy: Why don't you call me back in the morning?
Man: By then, it'll be gone.
Roy: What's that supposed to mean?
Man: Our investment is burning.
Roy: Oh, hell.
Felicia: What is it?
Roy: Pier 52 is on fire.
Felicia: Oh, my God! Is it arson?
Roy: It must be. I got to get down there.
Felicia: Let's go.
Roy: No, you're going home. We don't know what the hell's going on. I want you to go home. I'll call you when I find out what's up.
Felicia: You promise?
Roy: Yeah, I promise. You go home.
Sonny: I know you, Carly. I know what's in your heart.
Carly: And you love me anyway? Don't bother.
Sonny: I make you happier than you've ever been, admit it.
Carly: And you make me sadder, too, Sonny. Don't you get it? You know what? The pain is just -- it's winning out and the good times aren't worth it. I cannot continue to live my life loving someone who doesn't love me back.
Sonny: I do love you back.
Carly: No, but you don't love me the way that I love -- loved you. Okay? Look, Sonny, I'm never really going to be the woman that you want anyway. I'm not --
Sonny: You can get pregnant.
Sonny: The doctor called. You have to make a few appointments, you know, but everything's fine. You can have my child.
Carly: Oh, okay. So that's -- that's why you came here tonight. Because I can get pregnant after all?
Sonny: We can have everything.
Carly: Ah, I'm not damaged goods anymore.
Sonny: That's not what I mean, Carly.
Carly: No, you can have everything that you ever wanted.
Sonny: You want a baby, too. You want a family as much as I do. We can have that now. We can have a life. It may not be perfect and it -- it may hurt, but not like it did before.
Carly: Okay, you know what? Just get out of my house.
Sonny: Put it -- put that down. Put it down. It's Michaelís.
Sonny: Come here.
Roy: Damn it!
Roy: They'll get it under control.
Roy: They don't want to burn the pier to the ground; they just want to show me they can.
Man: Very professional work.
Roy: Yeah, they know what they're doing. There won't be any evidence of arson.
Man: We came to you with a job.
Roy: What's with the "we"? You're the messenger here, dude, I'm a partner. Don't you forget that.
Man: If you can't protect our investments, other arrangements will be made.
Roy: I know who did this.
Man: But you couldn't stop them.
Roy: They won't pull anything again.
Jason: Come on, come on.
Elizabeth: Are you leaving?
[Cheers and applause]
Courtney: I am so sorry.
Mr. Coleman: Where the hell have you been?
Courtney: There is -- there's a fire on the docks, and my bus got caught in traffic.
Mr. Coleman: If you'd come straight over when I called you, you'd be out there now.
Woman: Whew! Boys are hot tonight.
Mr. Coleman: See? Wynona's already got them warmed up for you. Say thank you.
Wynona: Oh, will you give her a break?
Mr. Coleman: See, Wynonaís dependable. She comes to work.
Courtney: It was supposed to be my night off.
Wynona: Oh, well, you get a chance to work, take it.
Mr. Coleman: Pay attention.
Wynona: You know, they won't be calling out for Daisy forever, so you'd better get out there and make as much money as you can right now. You struck gold with this one.
Mr. Coleman: Yeah. I know a kid with talent when I see one.
Courtney: Hey. I'm not a kid, all right, and this job has nothing to do with talent.
Wynona: You want to bet?
Courtney: That came out wrong. I mean, what I said about talent. I'm really sorry.
Wynona: Don't worry about it.
Mr. Coleman: And now, here she is, the girl you've all been waiting for, fresh off the farm. Our own little wild flower, and I do mean "wild," boys. Here she is -- Daisy.
[Cheers and applause]
Carly: In your dreams, babe.
Sonny: Do you want me to stop?
Carly: Like you could.
Sonny: Let me help you out here.
Carly: Oh, yeah? No.
Sonny: Here, let me do it.
Sonny: What are you doing?
Carly: Me? Hmm?
Carly: You like this, don't you?
Carly: You know what? You'll like it a lot more before I'm finished.
Sonny: You think so?
Carly: I know so. Because you know what?
Carly: I'm going to drive you crazy, then I'm going to kick you out of my bed and then out of my life.
Sonny: You're not going to kick me out of bed.
Carly: Try me.
Sonny: Because I love you too much.
Carly: Oh, really?
Carly: I hate your guts. But you know that I'm the best thing that ever happened to you.
Sonny: That's right. You can love me, it's all right. We can have it all now -- a child, the whole thing.
Sonny: Oh, man.
Sonny: Believe me. Oh.
Sonny: No, no, no. Wait, wait, wait, wait. I got to get it.
Carly: No --
Sonny: I got to get it. Hold on.
Sonny: It's very, very -- yeah?
Carly: Hang up the phone.
Jason: Meet me at the Elm Street pier.
Carly: Is it Jason?
Jason: It's been taken care of.
Carly: Jason, hang up the phone!
Jason: Carly sounds mad.
Sonny: Yeah, she's a little bit mad.
Carly: Give me the phone.
Sonny: Would you wait a minute? I'll be right there, okay? I got to go.
Carly: You're going?
Sonny: I got to go.
Carly: Oh -- I let you do it to me again.
Sonny: I got all this stuff. Hey, hey. Hey, I'll be back, okay? All right? All right.
Carly: Not this time.
Zander: Maybe you don't want to wake up and -- and find me here.
Elizabeth: Why not?
Zander: Well, I mean, we didn't -- we didn't exactly plan this.
Elizabeth: No, we didnít. But when I saw you crash through the door of the stairwell, I've never been happier to see anyone. So stay.
Zander: You're sure?
Elizabeth: If I wasn't, I wouldn't have asked.
Zander: Oh, wait one second.
Elizabeth: Thank you.
A.J.: Yeah, hi. Port Charles National Bank, please. Do you have a number for the data entry department? Yeah. I need to call my wife. She works the late shift.
[Cheers and applause]
Wynona: That was nice work, girl.
Mr. Coleman: You did all right.
Wynona: What are you doing?
Mr. Coleman: What, are you running my club now, is that it?
Wynona: Well, you don't take the other girls' money.
Mr. Coleman: Here's your half.
Wynona: Whoa. You're taking 50%?
Mr. Coleman: You got four more dances tonight, sweetheart. Make them count.
Wynona: Oh, no. You do not have to take this off him. Nobody else does.
Courtney: It's okay. We have a business deal.
Mr. Coleman: That's right.
Courtney: You don't give me any trouble and I won't cause any trouble, okay?
Mr. Coleman: Love that spunk.
Wynona: Oh. Don't let him walk all over you.
Courtney: Yeah, I don't have much of a choice.
Wynona: Well, sure you do. Tell him that you'll take your fans to another club. Oh, or better yet, just threaten to quit every day or so. There's this one girl who used to swear she'd get a job at the library.
Courtney: I can't do that.
Wynona: Why'd you take this job?
Courtney: My husband owes money.
Wynona: Oh, figures. He's a gambler?
Courtney: No. He was -- he was driving drunk and he crashed into the club.
Wynona: Oh, that was your husband?
Courtney: Yeah. If my husband gets another D.U.I., he has to go to jail.
Wynona: Oh. So you're stripping to keep Coleman quiet and pay off the debt?
Courtney: Yeah. We're totally broke.
Wynona: Yeah. So, who came up with this idea? Your hubby?
Courtney: No. No, no. He doesn't know anything about this and he can't, not ever.
Wynona: Well, are you afraid of him?
Courtney: No. No --
Wynona: Tell him. Let him work something out with Coleman about the D.U.I.
Courtney: I canít.
Wynona: Why not?
Courtney: Because he's a recovering alcoholic.
Wynona: Oh, yeah. And if he finds out, he'll take a drink.
Courtney: How'd you know?
Wynona: Honey, you aren't the first pretty girl down this road.
Courtney: Okay, A.J. is different.
Wynona: Aren't they all.
Courtney: No. His family -- they're super rich, right, and he lost everything when he married me, so --
Wynona: So you owe the guy.
Courtney: It isn't like that. A.J. would feel terrible if he knew I was working here. He'd be humiliated more than anything. It would break his heart and it would make him start drinking again, and I can't let that happen.
Carly: Come on, come on, come on, come on, pick up. Pick up. Hello? Hey. Scott? Yeah, it's -- it's Carly Corinthos. Yeah, well, who cares what time it is, okay? I need a good divorce lawyer. Okay, no, no, don't -- don't -- don't hang up. Well, I need a restraining order -- you know, to keep someone dangerous away? Yeah, I don't want Sonny Corinthos within 500 feet of me.
Sonny: Some fire.
Jason: Yeah, it won't get past Pier 52.
Sonny: Anybody hurt?
Jason: No, and there won't be.
Sonny: Good. You think DiLucca got the message?
Jason: Let's hope so.
Sonny: This should set him back a couple of bucks.
Jason: Yeah, I don't know. I found at least a million in cash at his place, in a briefcase.
Sonny: Any clue who's fronting the money?
Jason: Someone with a lot of cash to invest in taking you down.
Sonny: Well, the sooner we find out who did this, the sooner we can stop it.
Roy: Did you tell your boss I wanted to see him?
Man: That isn't how it works.
Roy: Oh, yeah? Well, if he doesn't like the way I'm running things, he can deal with me face to face.
Man: That may not be possible.
Roy: Then you tell him I know what I'm doing.
Felicia: And that would be?
Roy: What are you doing here?
Felicia: Who's this gentleman?
Roy: You are not supposed to be here.
Felicia: What do you want with Roy DiLucca?
Man: The New York harbor. No idea, but we will be heading upriver soon. I am getting bored. Bored with everything except her. We're finished here. Let's just say some pressing business has come to my attention. I didn't hear you slip out of the bedroom, darling.
Man: Just tell me what you need.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Gia: Look who's here.
Man: No one named Courtney works here.
Roy: The Oasis Club on Portside Road. You be there in half an hour.
Jason: Why are you meeting Roy? It's time for him to come to you, Sonny.
Sonny: He won't. He's too busy showing disrespect.
Courtney: When did my life get to be such a mess?
