General Hospital Transcript Thursday 7/25/02
>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Edward: It's time to take Jax down once and for all.
Laura: I remembered something more about that night. Scotty was with me.
Scott: She's going to figure this out.
Rick: Keep your distance. I'll handle it.
Roy: He's really the courier for our money source -- a man I haven't met.
Carly: Put me down, Sonny!
Sonny: It's all right.
Carly: Sonny, put me down!
Ned: I'm not letting you put my child in danger.
Alexis: Your child?
Skye: Jax has women calling his cell phone now in public. How much longer do you expect me to put up with this, Edward? Look, I passed your little test, all right? Now tell me what it is you need. I'll do anything I have to to destroy Jasper Jacks.
Jane: Oh, my.
Skye: Who are you? What do you want?
Jax: Mom, Dad, it's good to see you.
[Knock on door]
Zander: Hey. Why aren't you keeping that door locked?
Elizabeth: Is that what you came here to tell me?
Zander: Look, you need to keep that door locked, okay? If you feel like you're trapped, you just call me.
Elizabeth: What about the fire on Pier 52? God only knows how Roy’s planning to get back at Jason and Sonny. Promise me you'll stay out of it.
Zander: Look, I'm not looking for any trouble, okay? Come here.
Zander: Zander Smith.
Roy: Meet me at the port Charles Hotel, penthouse 12, now.
Zander: I'm on my way.
[Knock on door]
Felicia: Since when do you call a meeting at one of the fanciest penthouses in town?
Roy: Since I moved in. I live here now.
Ned: Thanks for coming. I wasn't sure you would.
Alexis: Touching base before you leave town is not an unreasonable request.
Ned: I didn't think so.
Alexis: Announcing my pregnancy to Taggert and to anyone else who happened to be standing around the police station, however, was unreasonable and unfair and undeserving.
Ned: Let's put this in historical perspective, shall we? What if you were pregnant that Christmas that you were gunned down?
Alexis: I wasn’t.
Ned: Yeah, but what if?
Alexis: Number one, they were aiming at Sonny, not me. Number two, I don't represent Sonny anymore.
Ned: Roy is just as bad.
Alexis: You don't get to pick my clients. I do.
Ned: Are you that desperate to be close to Sonny?
Carly: Oh, thank you. Thank you so much.
Sonny: I'll take care of that, buddy. There you go.
Man: Gracias, Senor.
Carly: You can't give him $100.
Sonny: Adios. She's a little, you know -- "Help, I've been kidnapped"? No, no, no. You are not going anywhere.
Jane: The mighty moose burgers.
Jax: Fantastic. And salmon.
Jax: Yes. Skye, why don't you come in and join us?
Skye: I am so sorry about before.
Jax: Meet my parents. This is Jane and John. Skye Quartermaine.
John: She's not going to toss me across the room, is she?
Jax: I don't know. She's tossed me across the room once or twice.
Jane: Oh, ignore their foolishness. I'm delighted to meet you.
Skye: Oh, I'm afraid of the things Jax must have said about me.
John: Well, you make our son happy. That's all that matters.
Jax: Oh, did you bring the hard tack?
Jane: Oh -- only three boxes of it.
Jax: Well, that should keep me through the summer. Ye: Hard tack?
Jax: Yeah, how would you explain it best? It's kind of like -- kind of like crackers.
Jane: Hmm, yes, that have been sitting around for about 50 years.
John: Yes, but there's nothing better for the Iditarod.
Skye: The dog race?
Skye: You actually compete?
Jane: I'm afraid I'm the guilty party, dear.
Jax: Yeah, five years in a row, hmm?
John: Isn't she a treasure?
Jax: She certainly is.
Jane: The herring!
John: What, still in the car?
Jane: If we hurry, they'll be fine.
Jax: I'll help.
John: No, no, no, we'll get the herring. You two set up the plates.
Jane: We'll be back in a flash.
John: Hey. Hi-ya, hi-ya.
Jax: Guys, come on. My parents are something, aren't they?
Skye: Yeah. It's just they love you so much.
Luke: Oh, I'm sorry, honey. I didn't mean to scare you.
Laura: That's okay. I just saw Scotty’s face, and it made me remember the woman's face, the woman with the red hair.
Luke: Can you describe her?
Laura: Yeah, maybe. What are you thinking, like a police sketch artist or something?
Luke: No. No, no cops. But we do need to talk to somebody we can trust, and I know just the person. Come on.
Scott: Bobbie, you don't even know where your daughter is.
Bobbie: Well, Sonny and Carly have their own way of doing things.
Scott: What about this restraining order?
Bobbie: Look, Carly obviously wanted Sonny to come after her, and he did. It's -- it's just part of this game that they like to play.
Scott: Well, this little game that they like to play is going to cost Sonny quite a bit.
Bobbie: Scott, don't you dare try and use my daughter to get to Sonny.
Scott: Hey, I didn't file the restraining order. I got to go. I'm late. I got a meeting.
Bobbie: What meeting?
Scott: Oh, the mayor's office, you know. They just called me out of the blue.
Bobbie: But we're not finished.
Scott: I'll call you later.
Alexis: Roy has the right to own the pier.
Ned: And Sonny has a right to a vigorous defense. Wasn't that your excuse for representing him? And look where that got you.
Alexis: That was uncalled for.
Ned: Look, Roy is trouble. You can't afford it and neither can your child.
Alexis: Fine. If I find out Roy’s involved with the mob, I'll drop him as a client.
Ned: That's all I'm asking.
Alexis: For the record, I was going to do that, anyway.
Ned: I know you know this, but I've given up a lot for this child.
Alexis: So have I.
Ned: I guess lunch is out of the question? I really need to talk to you.
Kristina: Isn't it a little too late for that?
Felicia: So you really went out and bought your penthouse?
Roy: Cash in the barrelhead.
Felicia: The view of your dreams -- the waterfront.
Roy: Yeah, I can see all those poor fools walking home like I used to from here.
Felicia: So, where's New York City?
Roy: Well, it would be, you know, out there if you could get in a balloon and take a ride and -- right over there?
Roy: That's Pier 52 right there.
Felicia: Yeah. I recognize the fire damage.
Roy: Yeah, well, Sonny made his point, and now I'm making mine.
Felicia: By rebuilding.
Roy: Yeah. Sonny Corinthos is not going to get in the way of our dream.
Felicia: So I suppose you haven't heard from the money guy. Otherwise, you would have told me about it.
Roy: Have I mentioned how lovely you look today?
Felicia: Thank you. What if I traced the cell phone number of the courier?
Roy: Work, work, work. Yeah. You know, I kind of like waiting the guy out.
Felicia: The more you know about the money guy, the more leverage you'll have.
Roy: Yeah, but that cell phone number's not going to help.
Felicia: Assume nothing -- that is the first rule of being a good P.I.
Roy: Yeah? What's the second?
Felicia: Threaten with physical violence. Hand over the number or I'm going to have to kick your backside.
Roy: Whatever happened to "make love, not war"?
Felicia: That's the third rule if all else fails.
Roy: All right. I surrender. I'm going to give you the number --
[Knock on door]
Roy: Just a second. But you be careful -- it goes without saying.
Felicia: You know me.
Roy: Yeah, that's why I mentioned it. Wow.
Zander: Oh. If this is a bad time, I can --
Felicia: Next time, you'll have to take a number.
Roy: Thanks for stopping by, Felicia.
Felicia: I love the apartment, Roy.
Felicia: Nice to see you, Zander.
Zander: You, too.
Roy: Be careful.
Roy: You got here quick, man. That's good.
Zander: So, what do you need?
Roy: It's payback time for Sonny.
Sonny: You -- you love this place.
Carly: Oh, not anymore.
Sonny: You need a vacation.
Carly: Yeah, I do, from you, for the rest of my life.
Sonny: You need to rest, get some perspective.
Carly: You were the one who put me over your shoulder, you threw me into the back of your limo, dragged me onto your jet, and then locked me up in here, and I need perspective?
Sonny: It's nice here.
Carly: Oh, I am calling the police.
Sonny: Go ahead. Give them my regards.
Carly: You know what? Just because everyone on this island works for you does not mean I still can't escape.
Sonny: I own the island! You know that.
Carly: Yeah, but you don't own me!
Sonny: Ocean's beautiful today.
Carly: Only if you're drowning in it.
Sonny: Remember when you -- when you tried to save me?
Sonny: I swam out too far and -- remember that?
Carly: Yeah. You know what? I wish you had.
Sonny: And then you -- you tried to -- well, you almost drowned me trying to pull me in.
Carly: Don't worry. I'll get it right next time.
Sonny: Come out here.
Carly: Huh -- keep dreaming.
Sonny: Listen to the waves. Feel the ocean. Smell the trees.
Carly: Adios, muchacho. You like the ocean so much, go for a swim, and I hope the sharks get you! You like that air? Choke on it. You know, and the sunshine -- I hope you die of sun poisoning. Yes. You know what? I hope that you drown, that you burn up, and then the sharks can finish you off. You know what, Sonny? You're breaking the law. I have a restraining order against you. You are not supposed to be within 500 feet of me. And I don't care that we're on this stupid island. You know what? You're still breaking the law! You know what, Sonny? You don't own me. Oh, I forgot here! Oh, we're dealing with Mr. Mighty Sonny Corinthos, who thinks he controls everything. But you don't control me, Sonny -- never, ever, ever again. Sonny? Jeez!
Sonny: You seem a little upset.
Carly: Okay, what -- what is wrong with you?
Sonny: You want to leave? Go ahead, leave.
Carly: Oh, so your goons can come and just drag me right back on in here?
Sonny: Suit yourself. But if you stay, I'll give you anything you want.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah -- a life together, a family, a child.
Carly: Oh, okay. So if the doctor hadn't called you and told you that I could get pregnant after all, would you still have just knocked down that door?
Sonny: I want a child with you, Carly. We're safe here, the both of us. This is the place where we grieved for our baby, right here in this room. You needed time to heal, to rest. I'm giving you that right now.
Carly: It's too late.
Sonny: We -- we got through losing our baby. We'll get through this. We just got to start over.
Carly: Sure, until something better comes along.
Sonny: I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Okay? Hmm?
Carly: You mean nothing to me.
Sonny: Okay. Prove it.
Scott: I don't have time. I've got a meeting with the mayor.
Rick: The D.A. just resigned.
Scott: Yeah, well, that's been coming for a couple of months now.
Rick: You are the new one.
Scott: What are you talking about?
Rick: If you want the job. That's why the mayor is calling you in. You have been cleared all the way to the governor's office.
Scott: I don't need any favors.
Rick: Don't be so sure.
Scott: Listen, okay? Something happened a while back. All we got to do is keep a lid on the truth and we'll be fine.
Rick: It would be a lot easier if you were the D.A.
Scott: I don't want to be the D.A. District attorneys are crusaders. I don't do that anymore. I got a private practice.
Rick: Without someone in the right place, they will hang us both.
Scott: The more Laura remembers, the worse this gets.
Laura: You know, I think the hair was a little bit longer than that.
Elizabeth: Okay. Like this?
Laura: And the jaw -- softer somehow.
Luke: Elizabeth, we'd appreciate it if this could be kept just among the three of us.
Elizabeth: Of course. Yeah. Okay, can you think of anything else?
Laura: I don't think so.
Elizabeth: All right. Just give me a second, then.
Luke: She's really good, isn't she?
Laura: Yeah, amazing.
Elizabeth: All right. What do you think?
Laura: That's it. That's the woman.
Ned: Give me two minutes.
Kristina: Go away.
Ned: 120 seconds.
Kristina: Or what are you going to do? You going to cause a scene in the restaurant?
Ned: A good idea. I never thought about that.
Kristina: You have one minute and 57 seconds.
Ned: Okay. Look, I'm going to New York to see Brooke Lynn. I think now would be a good time for you to patch things up with Alexis.
Kristina: Is that it?
Ned: You spent years trying to find your sister.
Kristina: One minute --
Ned: Don't let go now.
Kristina: 43 seconds.
Ned: She never meant to hurt you, Kristina.
Kristina: One minute, 33 seconds.
Ned: The universe brought you two together. Do you really want to mess things up?
Kristina: Are you blaming this on me?
Ned: No. Look, if you walk away right now, you may not have the chance to walk back.
Kristina: 50 seconds.
Ned: Don't cut yourself off --
Kristina: 43 seconds.
Ned: From your sister because of me. You'll regret this.
Kristina: 33 seconds.
Ned: Please, please, just promise me you'll speak to her.
Kristina: Your time's up. I'm sorry.
Ned: No, no. I've got a lot of time. We both do.
Sonny: There we go.
Carly: Oh, Sonny, what is it going to take for you to get this? How many times do you really need to hear it? I don't have to prove myself to you. I left, okay? I hired an attorney -- one I'm not sleeping with, by the way -- and I got a restraining order. And you go ahead and you use that so you could be with Alexis.
Sonny: I was arrested.
Carly: See what I mean?
Sonny: I didn't call her.
Carly: Oh, right. You just happened to run into poor, little, pregnant Alexis at the police station. Yeah, yeah, I gotcha. Makes perfect sense.
Sonny: We made a deal.
Carly: You and little Lexi dear?
Sonny: No, me and you.
Carly: I'm so out of here.
Sonny: No. You can leave if it doesn't work out.
Carly: Okay, what's the deal?
Sonny: Okay, the deal is this. 24 hours, you do what I want. You can't say no. I get to give you presents, feed you, champagne, a little wine, and I'm able to do whatever I want.
Carly: Life as usual with Sonny Corinthos.
Sonny: Right, 24 hours. If you want out, it's over, and then you don't -- I won't bother you again.
Carly: Define "no."
Sonny: Okay, you can't leave, you do what I want, and you can't refuse.
Carly: This isn't a deal. It's a test.
Sonny: 24 hours. You'd never have to see my face again.
Carly: Oh, you think I can't resist you?
Sonny: Well, you can try.
Carly: My love for you is gone. Don't you get it? It's over. It's gone. It's done with.
Sonny: Then 24 hours is not going to be a problem at all, is it?
Carly: You go ahead. You knock yourself out. Give it your best shot. Because you know what? I could give you a week. I could give you a month, a year --
Sonny: It's not going to take that long.
Carly: It's not going to change my mind.
Jax: When was the last time you had herring and hard tack?
Skye: Try never. Your parents are amazing.
Jax: Yeah, you don't mind them just showing up like that, do you?
Skye: Oh, no, not at all.
Skye: No. Growing up with them must have been wonderful.
Jax: Yeah. Yeah, I know how lucky I am.
Jane: Your father wants to see you, something about an invention he's dreaming up.
Jax: Oh, okay. Sure, yeah.
Skye: Yeah. Can't wait to hear about that invention, huh?
Jane: Oh, you'll be fine in here.
Jax: I'll be right back.
Skye: Oh, that -- that bracelet is beautiful.
Jane: An Inuit guide gave it to me after an 80-mile hike. We were waiting for the others to catch up.
Skye: You hiked 80 miles?
Jane: It was quite a trek, actually. Nothing like the 300 milers, but we did see the northern lights and we kayaked in the sea a bit. Have you ever been to Alaska?
Skye: I've never even thought about Alaska. No, I'm -- I'm a beach person. My idea of a trek is going after my own refill.
Jane: Well, you make my son happy, and that's all I care about. You've changed his life for the better.
Jax: I -- I haven't been holding out on you, Dad.
John: Oh, really? You've barely mentioned this woman.
Jax: Well, she kind of caught me by surprise.
John: You know, I haven't seen you this happy since -- since Brenda.
Jax: Yeah. Yeah, I didn't -- I didn't think I'd ever feel this way again.
Luke: Thank you so much for doing this for us.
Elizabeth: You're welcome. I hope it helps you find what you're looking for.
Luke: Me, too. You sure you don't mind if we just hang out a while?
Elizabeth: No, no. Stay as long as you like. I have errands to run.
Luke: Okay. Thanks again.
Elizabeth: You're welcome.
Laura: You know, it's strange, but she almost looks like my mother when she was younger.
Luke: Hmm. I wonder what Rick will say.
Laura: Yeah. Let me deal with Rick.
Luke: I can get the truth out of him.
Laura: Yes, I'm sure you can, but you might shut him down completely. You know, I know he loves me, and he owes me the truth.
Luke: That doesn't mean you'll get it.
Laura: Yeah. Let's see if we can make some copies of this. What do you think? Maybe you can deal with Scotty.
Luke: Oh, that works for me.
Laura: Luke, I think we're getting pretty close to the end.
Alexis: The waterfront fire was arson, according to the police.
Roy: Well, I could've told them that.
Alexis: Do we need to discuss retaliation?
Roy: What did you have in mind?
Alexis: Actually, I'm more interested in what you have in mind.
Roy: I'm just trying to run a business.
Alexis: Well, and I'm afraid that's a little too vague for me.
Roy: Alexis, if you're worried about representing me, you shouldn't --
Alexis: I'm pregnant.
Roy: You need -- need to sit down or something?
Alexis: I can't put myself or the baby at any risk.
Roy: Should I congratulate you?
Alexis: Certainly. Thank you. Let me ask you this another way. Are you just another gangster now?
Felicia: Absolutely not.
Carly: Come on, Sonny, let's get this over with.
Sonny: I'm ready.
Carly: Have you seen Sonny? Oh, Sonny, it's you. I thought you were the maitre d'.
Sonny: You look beautiful.
Carly: Yeah? Well, look now because in 23 hours and some change, I'm out of here.
Sonny: We'll have -- we'll have dinner now.
Carly: Okay. I'm keeping the dress, Sonny.
Sonny: Don't sit down.
Carly: You just said eat.
Sonny: Yeah, but you're going to wear these.
Carly: Wedding rings?
Sonny: That's right.
Carly: Aye, aye, Sir.
Carly: Would you make up your mind already.
Sonny: I'm going to put them on you. Give me that. This goes right here --
Sonny: And that goes right there.
Carly: Jason did it much better when I was married to A.J.
Sonny: That marriage was a lie. This one's for real. That ring right there means that I love you and I'm committed to you.
Carly: Let's eat. Okay? Lobster.
Jax: Coffee's as strong as ever.
John: Good for the constitution. Don't you agree, Skye?
Skye: Oh! Ahem -- yes, I guess that's what makes your coffee so interesting.
Jax: Now, wait a minute. "Interesting" is not a word that I would describe --
Jane: I believe our son has met his match. Try the huckleberry preserves, dear.
Jax: You know Mom hikes all over Alaska picking berries?
Jane: I had to hide these jars from your father.
John: Oh, Jane.
Skye: Oh, damn! Oh, I -- I'm so sorry.
John: No apologies necessary.
Jax: Nice move.
Skye: Thank you so much.
Jane: Douse it in club soda before the stain sets. Hurry.
Skye: Yeah, I -- I'll be right back.
Jax: I'll help.
Skye: No. I made the mess. I will clean it up.
John: Now, that one will give you a run for your money.
Jax: More than I ever imagined.
Jane: We like her, son.
John: You've found a damn fine woman.
Jane: Don't let her slip away.
Jax: Oh, I don't intend to.
Scott: Come on, Bobbie, pick up.
Scott: Hey, hey. What took you so long?
Scott: Yeah, listen -- turn on the TV.
Bobbie: What happened?
Scott: Just -- just turn it on.
Man: Has anyone seen Baldwin?
Bobbie: Tell me this has nothing to do with Carly because the restraining order does not mean that she wants Sonny arrested.
Scott: Just turn on the TV. Bye.
Zander: You know how long I've been on hold? This is still the health department, right? I didn't get bounced around or anything? You know the Corinthos-Morgan warehouse down on the docks? Their coffee's contaminated.
Roy: Just because a guy owns a piece of the waterfront doesn't mean he's connected.
Alexis: Are you?
Roy: I -- I would never put you in danger. You know that.
Alexis: That's not what I asked you.
Felicia: He's a good man. He doesn't always play by the rules.
Alexis: Exactly which rules are we not playing by?
Felicia: Well, he's made lots of mistakes, but he's paid for them. In fact, he spent a lot of time in prison helping the good guys just so he could see his daughter.
Alexis: Unfortunately, his personal history is irrelevant right now.
Felicia: But he's not a gangster. He's a compassionate man who feels very strongly about his family. He's a man of his word.
Alexis: You sound just like me not that long ago. Do you have anything else you want to say?
Roy: No, you just -- you do what you have to do.
Alexis: Find yourself a new attorney.
Alexis: It was nice to see you again, Felicia.
Felicia: You, too.
Roy: Thanks for stopping in, Alexis.
Felicia: I'm sorry. Was that my fault?
Roy: Thank you for believing in me.
Sonny: You have to eat.
Carly: You want to feed me, feed me.
Sonny: Are you going to eat it?
Carly: I hate fish. You know it.
Sonny: You love lobster.
Carly: Not that one.
Sonny: Why not?
Carly: Will you look at him? Poor little thing, he was swimming around in the ocean, minding his own business.
Sonny: You love lobster with butter --
Carly: And then somebody grabbed him and threw him feet first into boiling water. I know how it feels.
Sonny: And lemon.
Carly: Look at him, Sonny. He's probably millions of years old. Prehistoric, just like you.
Sonny: Eat. Come on, come on, come on.
Carly: You know what? You want me to eat? Give me some real food, like a double cheeseburger with bacon and some onion rings and a nice cold beer with those artificially flavored and colored orange cheese puffs. And a pizza -- frozen one -- and potato chips.
Sonny: That's going to take too long.
Carly: You know, that is the story of my life with you. I want something, I have to wait. It's okay. I'm used to it. I'll wait.
Sonny: Dance with me?
Carly: To that crap?
Sonny: That's a classic.
Carly: Like I said --
Sonny: Dance with me.
Sonny: That's very nice.
Carly: Hmm. You don't mind, do you? Hmm? No?
Sonny: Okay, hold on. Come here. The deal is you do what I want, right?
Carly: Right. Okay. No one said I had to like it, though.
Sonny: Oh, you're going to like it, believe me.
Carly: Okay. You just wake me up when it's over, all right? I'm going to sleep now.
Felicia: The courier's cell number led to a corporation.
Roy: And let me guess -- it only exists on paper.
Felicia: Somewhere. I don't even know what country it's in.
Felicia: We still don't know who the money guy is.
Roy: Well, I'm not worried.
Felicia: Why not?
Roy: Because I have you as my partner.
Felicia: You like your partner, don't you?
Roy: I like my partner a lot. I got a feeling that as long as my partner and myself have each other's backs, everything is -- is going to be fine.
Felicia: Yes, it will. You're carrying a gun?
Roy: Yeah. DiLucca. Yeah. Okay. I got a meeting this afternoon with the money man.
Elizabeth: Zander. The police are crawling all over Sonny's warehouse. Please tell me you don't know anything about this.
Tony: Why would we let a bunch of strangers run General Hospital?
Laura: Rick --
Rick: I am not exactly a stranger, am I, Tony? Laura, you look great.
Laura: Can I steal him away from you for a minute?
Tony: Sure. Take him. He's yours.
Laura: Come here. I know you were in the attic that night, and I know what happened.
Scott: No one is more surprised by this appointment than I am, but I am happy to announce, I am proud that I will accept the opportunity to serve Port Charles as acting district attorney.
Bobbie: I don't believe this.
Scott: As we all know, organized crime is an ongoing problem here in Port Charles.
Bobbie: Don't do it.
Scott: In my new capacity as district attorney, I am issuing a warrant for the arrest of Sonny Corinthos.
Man: On what charge?
Bobbie: Damn it, Scott!
Scott: Nobody is above the law here in Port Charles, especially Corinthos.
Man: Who did he kidnap?
Scott: Well, that information is confidential for the victim's safety.
Luke: Hey, Mr. D.A.?
Man: Is there a ransom note?
Luke: Mr. Baldwin? Over here.
Man: Are the police involved?
Luke: Scott, I got a question!
Alexis: You were right. I'm -- I'm done with Roy.
Ned: Really? Then you quit?
Alexis: Hands down, no more gangsters.
Ned: Take care of that child.
Alexis: I will.
Bobbie: Oh, thank God you're still here. Sonny's about to get arrested for kidnapping my daughter.
Sonny: Hey, hey -- you awake now?
Sonny: I'm finished.
Carly: What? Oh, my --
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Jane: Jax is in love with you.
Elizabeth: You're the reason the police are raiding Sonny's warehouse, aren't you?
Sonny: I like to watch.
Luke: What happened in that attic?
Scott: Give it a rest.
Rick: I was cheating on your mother. Now, isn't that enough?
