>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Laura: I saw Rick with a red-haired woman making love.

Alexis: I would do whatever it takes to keep my child from being exposed to Sonny's life.

Sonny: I'll be back, okay? All right?

Carly: I need a restraining order -- to keep someone dangerous away

Zander: Hey, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: Good morning.

Zander: What time is it? You should have wakened me up.

Elizabeth: No, you looked too comfortable and peaceful.

Zander: How about you?

Elizabeth: I actually slept really well. It felt really good. It helped having you here.

Zander: Look, I don't want you to think what happened last night was just a casual thing.

Elizabeth: You don't need to explain. It's okay.

Zander: I just -- I'm saying it was great. You were great. I'm just -- I'm trying to find the right words, and sometimes when I do that, I don't do it all that well.

Elizabeth: It's okay. I think I'm getting it. It's fine.

[Knock on door]

Elizabeth: No, no, wait. You stay here.

Elizabeth: Jason. Hi. Something wrong?

Jason: There was a fire last night on Pier 52.

Elizabeth: Was anyone hurt?

Jason: No. I just wanted to tell you that people are blaming Sonny, and he wasn't involved. But after what happened with the kidnapping, I thought I'd make sure you were okay.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Zander: She's fine. So am I. Thanks for asking.

Taggert: There she is, everybody's favorite little legal eagle. Well, if you're looking for public enemy number one, you've wasted a trip. Sonny hasn't been arrested in the past 24 hours.

Alexis: No, actually I'm here on behalf of Roy DiLucca and Felicia Jones.

Taggert: Oh, I see. Trade one thug for the other. Is that how it is? You know, all I want to do is talk to DiLucca, okay? And last time I checked, he hasn't been charged with anything.

Alexis: Someone burned down his pier, and he would like you to find out who did that.

Taggert: Guess what, Counselor -- I don't take orders from him or you.

Alexis: He's obviously being extorted on some level, and we'd like to know what the PCPD is doing about it, or are you asleep at the wheel as usual?

Laura: Mac? Hi.

Mac: Laura, Luke.

Luke: Hi.

Laura: Thanks for seeing us on such short notice.

Mac: It sounded important.

Laura: Yeah.

Luke: We have questions about the fire.

Mac: Yeah, me, too. It's suspects I'm short on. What do you know?

Luke: Well, we don't know much. That's why we're here.

Mac: The case went cold.

Luke: Mac, to go cold, it had to be hot first. Now, why was it hot, and when did you stick it in the cold file?

Mac: We checked the time-delayed ignition. It was household hardware. Nothing traceable. No fingerprints. Damage was limited. No motive, no one was hurt, no suspects.

Luke: Okay, let's take these one at a time. No motives -- to hide something. You know? No one was hurt -- our daughter could have been killed. And suspects? You keep ignoring the fact that Scott Baldwin showed up at that fire mysteriously immediately after it started. I know, honey. Just hang with me for a second. Now, while it's even a stretch for me to believe Baldwinís an arsonist, there are questions to be asked.

Scott: Rick. Hiya, Bobbie.

Bobbie: Hi, Scott.

Rick: Scott.

Scott: So, you convincing the employees they're going to have a job next week?

Bobbie: Actually, we weren't even talking about the hospital. We've just been doing a little catching up.

Scott: Well, remember, Rick is out for himself.

Rick: It is so good to see you, too, Scott.

Scott: Well, why don't you define "good"?

Rick: Having a great conversation with a very special old friend of mine.

Scott: You seem to be speeding down memory lane with Bobbie and Monica. Why don't you catch up with some of your other buddies that aren't associated with the hospital?

Bobbie: Scott, what are you doing? You're being a little unfair, don't you think?

Scott: I'm just trying to protect your interests.

Bobbie: Actually, we've been talking about Luke and the wedding.

Carly: Scott, hey. Where is it?

Scott: It's in the works.

Carly: You don't have it yet?

Scott: It's in the works.

Carly: Well, what does that mean? What's the holdup?

Scott: I'll tell you what it means. It means that you're not the center of the universe, okay, so relax.

Carly: Oh, I'm not?

Scott: No, you're not?

Carly: Aw.

Scott: No, not this universe.

Bobbie: Dr. Rick Webber, this is my daughter, Carly Corinthos.

Rick: This is Carly. Hi. How are you?

Carly: Yeah, hey. How you doing? You know me, I know nothing about you. Story of my life. So you know what, Scott? I cannot wait another second longer.

Scott: Well, the restrooms are to your right.

Bobbie: Would anyone care to explain?

Carly: Yeah, I hired f. Lee bailey here to file a restraining order against Sonny but obviously, I should have taken care of it myself.

Scott: I filed this morning. I'm on my way to the courthouse right now. Once Sonny's been served, I will send you my bill an hour later. And, Rick, I think you should put a pin in the politicking because it's not working. Bobbie, I'll see you later.

Bobbie: Rick, could you give us a minute?

Rick: All the time you want.

Bobbie: Thank you. A restraining order? What are you doing? Have you completely lost your mind?

Carly: Oh, no, on the contrary, Mama, I'd misplaced it. Now I've found it. It's back where it belongs. My so-called husband -- okay, husband -- no husband would do what he did to me last night. Love? I don't know. Honesty, respect? Where was it? You know what? I don't know because it certainly wasn't with me.

Bobbie: Well, as I predicted, Operation Jason blew up in your face.

Carly: Okay, Mom, you know what? I am really not in the mood for an "I told you so."

Bobbie: Well, admit it. You went for revenge and got stomped on.

Carly: This time. Never again.

Bobbie: Honey, I wouldn't count on that.

Sonny: Okay, whoa. Can you just hear me out?

Sonny: I just got here.

Carly: Yeah, which is why I'm leaving.

Sonny: Whoa. Does the word "apple turnover" mean anything to you?

Carly: They're flaky, like you.

Sonny: Come on, I'll treat you to one.

Carly: I swear, Sonny, I'll have you arrested.

Sonny: For what? Trying to ply you with pastry?

Carly: No, for violating a court order. Yeah, I filed a restraining order against you this morning, which means that you can't come within 500 feet of me.

Sonny: I'm talking to my wife.

Carly: Oh, don't call me that!

Sonny: Well, that's what you are.

Carly: Sonny, what is it going to take for you to get this? I don't want to see you. Don't you get it?

Sonny: No, I donít.

Carly: Okay, let me explain it to you. You are controlling, you're disrespectful, and we're getting a divorce this time for real. And also, you being ordered to stay away from me -- that's for real, too, so, please.

Sonny: Okay, just so I get this, you know, clear here, no apple turnover?

Rick: You are not the least bit concerned?

Bobbie: Hmm, no. When it comes to Carly and Sonny, the best thing is to look away.

Sonny: I tell you what. We'll sit down -- okay, you don't want to sit. We'll stand up. We'll talk this through. You have one of your lattes, I'll have some black coffee, and we'll stay up for about a week.

Carly: No, not going to happen.

Sonny: Okay, so, then, we'll go back to the penthouse and see where that goes.

Carly: Or we just forget that last night ever happened?

Sonny: I'm willing if you are.

Carly: Sonny, what is it going to take for you to get this -- you don't own me. I'm not some doll that you can play with and then toss away and then pick up whenever you're bored. It's not how it works.

Sonny: How does it work?

Carly: It doesn't work! Okay, I'm through.

Sonny: Well, it kind of worked last night a little bit.

Carly: Oh, my God, could you be any more delusional?

Sonny: You didn't bare your soul and confess your love?

Carly: Okay, stop it, stop it, Sonny. Just seriously, I have a restraining order. Get away!

Sonny: Shh. I can't do that right now.

Officer: Then you're under arrest.

Sonny: Okay, you know what? Can you -- we're in the middle of a little family discussion, so you can go ahead and --

Officer: Do you have a valid restraining order against this man?

Carly: Uh -- well, I --

Sonny: Come on.

Carly: I -- yeah. I filed it this morning. It's -- yeah, but it's not really --

Officer: You're under arrest.

Sonny: Okay, you know --

Officer: You have the right to remain silent. If you give up that right, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. Come on.

Zander: Let me get this straight. By night, he burns down piers, by days, he searches for damsels in distress. Shouldn't you warn people first and then launch the mayhem? I mean, this way seems kind of ass backwards.

Elizabeth: Zander, please.

Zander: No, you know, they set the fire to force Roy out. I guarantee it.

Jason: Elizabeth, I'm keeping somebody on you if anything happens. If you see anything --

Zander: She doesn't need you or your flunkies.

Jason: I'll be in touch.

Zander: You know, maybe you're not getting this.

Jason: No, you know what? Maybe you're not getting this, okay? This is not a game, Zander, and the warning goes to both of you!

Elizabeth: Jason, please.

Zander: Anytime, man. Anytime.

Elizabeth: Zander, back off! Both of you, okay?

[Phone rings]

Jason: You okay?

Carly: No. But, look, I'm at Kellyís. I can't really talk. I need to see you.

Jason: Meet me at the Elm Street pier.

Carly: Okay, I'm on my way.

Jason: I got to go. Be careful.

Elizabeth: I will. You can go, too. You got what you wanted. Why stick around?

Zander: Wait a second. That's not fair.

Elizabeth: I thought what happened between us last night was just about you and me. Obviously, it wasn't.

Zander: Elizabeth, come on.

Elizabeth: You know what? You accuse him of doing all these terrible things -- starting fires, beating people up -- but if you slept with me to get back at him, in my mind that's so much worse.

Taggert: Hey, Counselor, you've worked arson. You know the drill. Insurance companies, by nature, are suspicious. But, you know, hey, if DiLucca has an alibi, then he's fine, he's free, he walks.

Alexis: Roy was with someone all night.

Taggert: Well, that's good. That's a good start, unless it was a woman.

Alexis: I believe it was the commissioner's ex-wife.

Mac: Didn't Baldwin rescue your daughter?

Luke: He was the first one on the scene. He even beat the fire department. Iíve been over all of this.

Luke: Yeah, but, you see, Scott didn't have any reason to drive by Macís house that night. So all of a sudden there's a fire, and all of a sudden there's a Baldwin.

Mac: Personal vendettas are not grounds for arrest, Luke.

Luke: Well, talk to him, at least. Bring him down here and lock him up.

Mac: I don't have reasonable cause.

Luke: You are afraid he'll sue you.

Mac: He's a lawyer. You bet I'm afraid he'll sue me. Look, I'm sorry. I really am. There's nothing more I can do.

Luke: The fire department's slow in getting to the place, the police department's afraid of being sued -- what's happening to this town?

Laura: Luke?

Luke: Huh?

Laura: Maybe you should go.

Luke: Oh, no, honey, I like it here.

Laura: No, listen to me, really. You and Mac have been at each other's throats for a long time, and I think maybe if I were alone, I could convince him to let me have a look at the evidence report.

Luke: Okay, that makes sense. Do what you can, and I'll see you back home.

Laura: Okay.

Luke: Good luck.

Laura: Thank you. Oh! Oh.

Officer: Sorry.

Laura: I'm sorry.

Officer: I'll get you a towel.

Laura: Oh. Okay.

Scott: Laura?

Scott: Laura?

Carly: Sonny got arrested.

Jason: For what?

Carly: I filed a restraining order against him.

Jason: What? You filed a restraining order against Sonny?

Carly: Well, what was I supposed to do? He wouldn't take me seriously.

Jason: Don't you think that's a bit extreme?

Carly: Okay, you know, he humiliated me last night. You know, so did you! You guys switched places. You were supposed to come over, and I was going to -- oh, never mind.

Jason: Just get back to the part where you had Sonny arrested.

Carly: Okay. Sonny had himself arrested. I warned him there was a restraining order.

Jason: You called the cops on Sonny?

Carly: No, there was a detective in here who overheard us. Look, are all these little details all that important? Look, Sonny's busted. You get him out. Isn't that what you do?

Jason: No, his attorney gets him out, and that's Alexis. She resigned, remember?

Carly: Oh, yeah. And you think I care, don't you?

Jason: You know what? You do because you were worked up on the phone, and that's why I rushed over here.

Carly: No, it was a bad connection. It's a cell-phone thing, Jason. Look, I really -- I hope that Sonny is miserable for the rest of his life, okay? But I can't be responsible for having him locked up. He's claustrophobic. Please, just help me. Help me get him out, please.

Jason: Fine. I'll come along.

Carly: Good.

Jason: But this one is on your shoulders. If you want him out, you have to do it on your own. Let's go.

Carly: All right, fine.

Elizabeth: One minute you're this wonderful, brave guy who convinced me to fight for my life in the crypt, a guy who held me last night and didn't seem to want to let go. And then I turn around and you're this hot-headed jerk who throws what's between us in Jason's face.

Zander: I didn't mean it like that.

Elizabeth: I felt like some trophy you couldn't wait to display. "Hey, Jason, look what I got."

Zander: I'm sorry. Okay? It just -- it came out.

Elizabeth: What, you don't think before you speak?

Zander: I do, usually. Look, it's just -- it's Jason. Okay, I can't have a second with you without him showing up. I mean, he's like he's your big protector, you know, like he's the only one that you can trust, which is the weirdest part to me because he's the one who put you in the situation in the first place.

Elizabeth: Look, none of this is Jason's fault, okay? You went out of your way to make sure he knew we'd slept together. I just want to know why.

Zander: I don't know, okay? I -- I mean, is this really so painful? I mean, what's the big deal? So what if he knows?

Elizabeth: Oh, so shout it out to the world.

Zander: No, I'm just saying I'm not embarrassed. Elizabeth, it was wonderful, and it was great, and it felt right.

Elizabeth: Oh, you know what? Just stop it. Just -- just stop!

Zander: Wait a second. This is just the two of us here. I can't say how I feel?

Elizabeth: No, but, Zander, you're ruining this, okay? You're just making this such a huge mess!

Zander: I'm just trying to be honest, Elizabeth. You should try it sometime.

Elizabeth: I have always been honest.

Zander: That's right. You know what? You don't have to say a word. Your eyes tell the whole story. You needed me last night because Jason wasn't here. And now you're thinking you made this huge mistake -- you blew it with the guy that you really want to be with, you're tired, you're hurt, you're frustrated, and you're confused. Is that all of it, or am I leaving anything out?

Scott: Okay, Laura, just take it easy. You know, you were looking at me really weirdly in there, and you're still kind of looking at me a little strange.

Laura: I saw you in the attic. You were there. I remember.

Scott: I thought you were over these dreams.

Laura: You were standing in the doorway.

Scott: Well, we used to go to that attic all the time. I mean, remember, you had that curfew and that was the only place we could go, we'd go up there, and we'd, you know, fool around a little bit and listen to music and talk. That was our deal.

Laura: No, but this one night, this one night, you were there.

Scott: Which night?

Laura: The one when it was raining, you know, the one I can't get out of my head. You were there.

Scott: That one rainy night, I was there. I remember.

Luke: Room for one more here?

Bobbie: Oh, yeah. Join us.

Rick: Well, you're a little late for the show, however.

Luke: Show?

Bobbie: Oh, my daughter had her husband arrested. Stop.

Luke: That's rich. That's good. That's lovely.

Rick: I tell you, I think Carly is as much a handful to you as Laura used to be.

Luke: Now, what do you mean exactly by that?

Rick: Oh, she just always had a rebellious state.

Luke: Like all teenagers.

Rick: Exactly, and I'm going to be late if I don't leave right now for the meeting. Bobbie, it's been great.

Bobbie: See you, Rick.

Luke: See you.

Rick: Yeah.

Bobbie: Interesting little fishing expedition.

Luke: Yeah. He wiggled right off that hook, didn't he?

Bobbie: Well, maybe you were using the wrong bait.

Luke: Maybe.

Bobbie: Maybe we should give the "maybes" a break and you could deal me in.

Luke: Well, it's like this. Something happened in that attic over the garage in the old house where Laura used to live when she was a kid, and it was bad. Whatever it was, she can't recall it, but it's gnawing at her, it's eating her up inside, and I just think that Rick has got something to do with it.

Bobbie: And I just think you're leaving something out.

Luke: Well, maybe someone. Your buddy, Baldwin. My gut tells me that he's the key to this secret.

Ned: Excuse me.

Luke: Hi.

Ned: Hi. Did you happen to see Alexis? I was supposed to meet her here, and I'm late and -- was she here?

Bobbie: You could try the police station. Sonny was just arrested, and isn't Alexis always his one phone call?

Alexis: Roy was with Felicia last night.

Taggert: So? He could have hired somebody to set the fire.

Alexis: Oh, don't do the insurance thing. Why would Roy do that? He bought the pier with legitimate money. What, was he going to turn around and burn it down? This is someone with motive, someone that wanted Felicia and Roy out of business.

Taggert: Hmm. Let's see. Who could that be?

Alexis: Don't go there.

Taggert: Oh, well, no need to. Look who just came in.

Mac: What's this about?

Sonny: An overeager cop who's just about to take you aside there and give you his version of my false arrest.

Mac: Excuse us.

Sonny: Yeah. Alexis, glad you're here. I don't know who called, but can you clear this up? It's a big, big mistake.

Alexis: Actually, I'm not here on your behalf. I'm here on someone else's.

Taggert: You see, we were just talking about you. You see, Alexis here, she was giving me some suggestions for the pier fire -- you know, DiLucca's pier, and, well, your name came up.

Alexis: I'm here on Roy's behalf. He retained me this morning.

Sonny: Oh. I see. So you won't work for me because, you know, I'm too dangerous and too stressful for you to represent, but you'll work for DiLucca, a snitch and an ex-con?

Alexis: You are not really in a position to criticize --

Sonny: When did you become so naive that you believe what you want instead of what's real?

Alexis: I'm not sure that's mutually exclusive. I'm not actually sure what you're talking about.

Taggert: I know that I don't know.

Alexis: Do you mind? Excuse us a minute. Thanks.

Taggert: So --

Alexis: Okay, so where were we?

Sonny: Working for DiLucca is a big mistake. At best, it's a waste of time.

Alexis: And at worst?

Sonny: Dangerous.

Carly: I didn't actually want him arrested. I was mad. I was trying to send a message.

Jason: Okay, we're leaving.

Carly: Oh, like hell we are. Taggert, that man, my husband over there? He violated a court order. I want him prosecuted. Throw the damn book at him.

Sonny: Okay, Carly, let's think about what we're doing. Explain to them that we had a misunderstanding, and tell them that you're dropping the charges.

Carly: I told you about the court order, and I gave you fair warning. Oh, and we all know the one phone call, don't we?

Alexis: Sonny didn't call me.

Carly: Oh, save it, Alexis. You know, if you're really lucky, they will take Sonny down to a nice, cozy holding cell where you can follow him around like a lap dog. You'll have a captive audience, so you can tell him how trustworthy and honest and truthful you are, and he can tell you how misunderstood and unappreciated he is. You know what? Maybe you can order a little tea to go along with all the sympathy.

Sonny: Carly, I think that's enough now.

Carly: No, actually, it's a little too much because I think I'm going to be sick.

Jason: Okay, okay, listen, come here. Just come over here. Let's save everybody some time and trouble, okay? Did you call Alexis?

Sonny: No!

Jason: Is she representing you?

Sonny: Actually, she's representing Roy DiLucca. Her and Taggert were accusing me of setting that fire on the pier, Jason.

Carly: Well, I stand corrected. Lap dog, my butt. Turncoat.

Alexis: I'll be over there if anybody needs me.

Mac: Thanks for your input. Sonny, were you served with a restraining order?

Sonny: No.

Mac: When did you apply for the order?

Carly: I called my attorney last night.

Mac: Do you have a copy of the order?

Carly: My lawyer's on the way down here to pick it up.

Mac: You're free to go, Sonny. Katzenberg, uncuff him.

Carly: Wait -- just like that?

Mac: Sonny can't be arrested for violating an order he hasn't been legally served with. It's a little something called due process. But from this point on, Sonny, you're on constructive notice. Don't come within 500 feet of your wife. Understand? All right, Jason, get her out of here. But wait till they're gone, then leave. And do me a favor. Keep your domestic problems domestic from now on.

Sonny: Hmm. Sorry that you had to get involved, Alexis.

Alexis: Don't apologize. It was actually very revealing. Carly goes ballistic, you return fire, and Jason mediates. Kind of like the U.N.

Sonny: Well, she has a right to be upset, but she'll get over it.

Alexis: I'm sure she will.

Sonny: But, you know, I meant what I said. Are you listening to me, or are you going to keep writing on that piece of paper? Steer clear of Roy DiLucca. Keep that baby safe.

Elizabeth: The truth is I don't know what I want -- from you, from Jason, or from myself. Look, I like you, Zander, okay? But I don't get you.

Zander: I don't get me sometimes, either. But the one thing I do know is I didn't sleep at you last night to get back at Jason. And if I made a mistake, it was just now, not last night. Now, if I misread things and you want out of this --

Elizabeth: How can I want out of something I can't even define? No, I don't want out of our friendship, and I don't regret what happened last night. I just have no idea what's next.

Zander: Well, I don't, either. But I think that's okay. We'll just see what happens next. I guess I should probably go check in with Roy. I'm supposed to be working for him now, and since the pier's burned down, I might be out of a job. If I come see you at Kellyís later, is that okay?

Elizabeth: Sure. It's fine.

Luke: So, I just find it too convenient that he would be driving by when the fire broke out.

Bobbie: Luke, you're obsessing.

Luke: And you've got on those fuzzy pink blinders.

Bobbie: Scott is not that kind of person.

Luke: Scott's a hundred different kind of people. He's different in every situation. You think I don't trust him, and you're right, I donít.

Bobbie: Do you trust me?

Luke: Yeah.

Bobbie: Good.

Luke: Sure. Sure. Number one, I trust my instincts. I've been down this track before, headed for Scott, just headed for some kind of collision.

Bobbie: So hit the brakes.

Luke: I can't, Barbara. I'm going to find out what happened in that garage that's got my wife so spooked. And I'm going to find out where Scott fits into it.

Laura: Look, I can go over it and over it, and it isn't going to make any difference.

Scott: Well, it might, you know. Maybe we can fill in some of the gaps here, okay? So, you remember some people there, there was a light in the attic?

Laura: Right. I went up the stairs. The door to the attic was shut. I heard a woman moaning. I pushed the door open, and the lightning flashed, and for a second, I could see my own face in the mirror. And then I looked over, and on the couch I could see -- there was a woman with red hair, and I could tell that she had bare shoulders and she was with someone -- a man.

Scott: Did you recognize the woman or the guy? I mean, who were they?

Laura: I don't know. That's as much as I've been able to remember, until just now, when I saw you in the police department, and then it hit me that you were there. I mean, I saw you. You were standing in the doorway. You're soaking wet and calling my name. Come on, Scotty. I know you remember. I know you do. Now, why won't you tell me? Are you trying to hide something?

Scott: Laura, listen. You know what? I -- I do remember that night. You know, I just got a little confused because it was just the two of us. There was no one else there.

Laura: Are you sure?

Scott: Absolutely. I remember it vividly because it was -- well, it was a little embarrassing because, you know, you had snuck out of the house and you were going to meet me up there, and it was raining and you were -- I was a little late, and there you were, just drenched and, you know -- and then we, you know, started kissing and stuff and it got a little -- you know. And you didn't think it was the right time, and, of course, I didn't, either. So we just talked for a while, and I walked you back to the house.

Laura: No. Uh-uh. That's -- that's not right.

Scott: Yeah. No, I'm telling you -- there was no one else there.

Laura: Maybe they'd left.

Scott: Well, if they did, you never mentioned it to me. So, you know, why are you thinking about this stuff right now? This was so far back, you know? It was so long ago. Forget about it. You're -- you're going to marry Luke. Just be happy.

Laura: It's not really that easy.

Scott: Well, that's true when you marry him, but whatever, you know? It's just you love him, forget about that and go forward with your life.

Laura: Yeah. I guess you're right.

Scott: Mm-hmm.

Laura: Okay.

Scott: All right.

Laura: I'll see you.

Scott: I'll catch you later.

Scott: We got to talk.

Elizabeth: Jason? Were you looking for me?

Jason: I was on my way to the warehouse.

Elizabeth: Can we talk for a minute? I -- I really feel like I need to explain about last night.

Jason: No, it's fine.

Elizabeth: No, no. I -- I was alone, the power went out, I freaked. I tried to get out of the building, and I got trapped in the stairwell, and then Zander showed up and --

Jason: It doesn't matter.

Elizabeth: But it does, Jason. It matters to me.

Taggert: You know what? Even if your client has an alibi, I'm going to still need to talk to him.

Alexis: All right. Well, he'll come down for questioning, but then I -- I have to be present, but you knew that.

Taggert: Yeah, well, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Ned: Alexis?

Alexis: Oh, hi.

Ned: What are you doing here?

Alexis: My job. What are you doing here? Never mind. Where were we?

Taggert: Well, it's definitely arson. There's no doubt.

Ned: No, no, Lieutenant. Are you aware that Ms. Davis is pregnant?

Alexis: What -- what --

Taggert: Pregnant?

Ned: She's under a doctor's care, instructed to avoid stress, so she'll be removing herself from any cases involving Sonny Corinthos.

Taggert: Well, actually she's working for Roy DiLucca, and, besides me, you're the third -- pregnant?

Ned: DiLucca, Corinthos -- I don't care. She is giving up the criminal defense side of her practice as of right now.

Alexis: What -- excuse me.

Taggert: By all means, and, well, congratulations.

Alexis: Oh -- what are you doing? Are you out of your mind?

Ned: I'm not letting you put my child in danger.

Alexis: Your child?

Carly: Oh, go away.

Sonny: No, no, no, no. Not a chance.

Carly: Sonny, you're violating the restraining order. If you don't leave, I swear I'm going to call the cops.

Sonny: Good. Call the cops; tell them that you're revoking the order.

Carly: Like hell I will.

Sonny: Okay, you know what? This stops right now.

Carly: Yeah?

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: Or what? Is that a threat? Am I supposed to be scared?

Sonny: No, you're supposed to be my wife. We're supposed to be together. So you tell them to revoke the restraining order, or I'm going to figure out another way to work this out, a way you're not going to like. Not even a little bit.

Elizabeth: Zander put himself on the line for me. I -- I would've lost it in that crypt without him. It's true I don't know very much about him, but I do know what he's been to me lately, and I care about him, Jason. But I really care about you, too.

Jason: Okay. I hear you.

Elizabeth: No, I don't think you do.

Jason: You care about me, I care about you. I'll always protect you, you'll always be grateful.

Elizabeth: It's gone.

Jason: What's gone?

Elizabeth: You've always had this way of distancing yourself, of looking through people rather than at them. Your eyes go cold, impenetrable, but never with me. I could always look at you and know exactly how you felt. It was this -- this thing. It was special, just between us.

Jason: Things change.

Elizabeth: But you donít.

Jason: You must've blinked and missed it. All right, I got to go.

Luke: Thank you.

Laura: Luke?

Luke: Hi.

Laura: Thanks for waiting.

Luke: Oh, good. How did it go?

Laura: I remembered something more about that night -- Scotty was with me.

Luke: So he knows what happened?

Laura: I think he knows everything, but I think he's -- he's lying to cover it up. I think he may have done something wrong.

Scott: Laura is on the verge of remembering.

Rick: What did she say?

Scott: Well, she knows I was up there. I gave her some song and dance that we used to go up there and kiss and fool around and -- and to forget about it, but she's smart, all right? She's going to figure this out.

Rick: Don't panic, Scotty, just relax. Take it easy. Keep your distance. I'll handle it.

Scott: Handle it? Like you did back then?

Rick: If she pushes us any further, we have no choice.

Ned: You want to be lying on your back, strapped to a fetal monitor for the rest of your pregnancy?

Alexis: I'm perfectly capable of knowing how much stress I can handle and how much stress I can't handle. You can't just walk in here and blurt out that I'm pregnant.

Ned: Look, you didn't move to Manhattan. You chose to stay here. So now I am involved in this child's life, and I take that responsibility very seriously.

Alexis: You are not responsible. You -- you acted impulsively. It was well-intended, and I really appreciate that, but this is my baby and I'll handle it.

Ned: I am officially this child's father.

Alexis: Because you blurted it out. Official or nonofficial, it's based on a lie, and you can't just -- just tell me to give up my livelihood because you -- never mind.

Ned: I'm not asking you to do this for me.

Alexis: Fine. You want me to do it for me because of Sonny.

Ned: Sonny never even entered my mind. Alexis, do it for the baby. Your baby.

Sonny: Either you end this or I will.

Carly: Could there be a more selfish person on the planet?

Sonny: Hmm? Aside from you, I don't think so.

Carly: Oh, you smug, egotistical -- oh, we unlucky amoebas who surround you -- we're just here for your convenience, aren't we?

Sonny: You know you don't believe a word of that.

Carly: Every word, Sonny. You're selfish with a capital S, okay? Okay, yeah, there's a privileged few who get your respect -- Alexis, of course. Every word out of that bookworm's mouth is pure gold. Not me, I'm just the wife. So you whistle and I'm there. You snap your fingers, I come. You sneeze, I wipe your nose.

Sonny: You're blowing it, you know that?

Carly: Yeah? Your nose or the moment?

Sonny: No, our lives.

Carly: Well, Sonny, my life has become about being second, okay? Out of sight, out of mind.

Sonny: There is nobody more important to me than you are.

Carly: Words, Sonny. Words -- they're empty, they're meaningless. Do you know the adage?

Sonny: Yes, I do -- actions speak louder than words.

Carly: Right.

Sonny: Right.

Carly: And louder than a brass band in a tile shower.

Sonny: Yeah, well, you know what? Maybe it's time to stop talking and start doing.

Carly: I hope that means you're leaving.

Sonny: Yeah, I'm leaving --

Carly: Good.

Sonny: But not alone.

Carly: Sonny

Sonny: Come here.

Carly: Put me down, Sonny --

Sonny: That's all right.

Carly: Or I'm going to put you away for life!

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: Sonny, put me down!

Sonny: Max, could you please open the door, please?

Carly: Max, don't you open that door!

Sonny: Come on.

Carly: Sonny, put me down! Max, I hate you! Sonny -- ugh, Sonny! God!

Sonny: Shh.

Carly: Let me out, Sonny! Sonny, it's kidnapping! Ugh.

Sonny: Okay.

Carly: Sonny -- Sonny, you think this is going to make me love you? It's going to make me hate you even more than I already do! Sonny? Egotistical, arrogant pig!

Sonny: Let's go.

[Car starts]

Carly: Ugh!

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Ned: I really need to talk to you.

Kristina: Isn't it a little too late for that?

Skye: Hee-yah!

Jane: Oh, my.

Zander: What do you need?

Roy: It's payback time for Sonny.

Sonny: You are not going anywhere.
