>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Gia: We are going to get blamed for murder.

Sonny: Alcazar's trying to make this personal.

Roy: It's about as personal as it gets.

Sonny: Why?

Skye: You're going to keep the contract?

Edward: No, I'm going to give it to Jax.

Skye: Give it!

Edward: Not a chance! Ah! Ah!

Carly: You still get Jason -- that is, if he still wants you.

[Cheers and whistles]

Jax: Alan, Monica, get out here!

Skye: Give it up, you old coot.

Edward: Oh --

Jax: Yeah, send an ambulance to 57 Lake Road. A man has collapsed. He's had heart problems before. Is he breathing?

Skye: Yes, barely.

Jax: Yeah, he's barely breathing.

Alan? Monica?

Edward: I'll get you for this. You and that Aussie. Oh.

Alan: Father?

Jax: Yep.

Alan: Father, what happened? Oh, my God, hang on.

Monica: Edward --

Jax: Okay, thanks.

Monica: Is this real?

Skye: Oh --

Alan: There.

Skye: It's definitely real.

Alan: Hang on.

Monica: Edward -- what happened here?

Alan: Do you have a headache?

Monica: Edward, can you hear us? Edward?

Alan: Father? Do you feel any weakness anywhere?

Lucky: Why would I kill Rick Webber?

Scott: Why don't you tell me?

Nikolas: You know what? I'm a little confused about something. Why would the forensics team either help people get in trouble or help get them out of trouble, Scott?

Lucky: Well, what's it matter what he means? Rick Webber was drinking and driving and drove himself over a cliff. I mean, there was an eyewitness to the account.

Scott: Yeah, well, you can forget the witness.

Nikolas: Gia knows what she saw.

Scott: Gia's story has got a lot of holes.

Lucky: Oh, so that's where we're supposed to get nervous, right, Scott? We're supposed to get real nervous, right? Now I'm going to spill my guts to you?

Scott: You know, you're a lot sloppier than your father. He would never let me get prints off a coffee cup.

Nikolas: Unfortunately, that print won't stand up in court.

Scott: Nor would he have left a print inside Rick's car. So tell me, what were you doing in his car, Lucky?

Jason: You know what? Just forget I asked.

Carly: No, you know what, Jason? It's an important question and it deserves an answer. I actually have excellent reasons for messing in your life. Oh -- just one second, excuse me. Elizabeth? Elizabeth?

Jason: Are you trying to be funny?

Carly: No, I was just checking to see if Elizabeth snuck back up on the elevator.

Jason: Stay out of this.

Carly: She's stalking you, Jason. You know it's true.

Jason: Leave Elizabeth alone.

Carly: Oh, you don't believe me? All right, ask one of the security guards -- those two new ones? -- Because they found her lurking around in the parking garage where you park your motorcycle, and they practically hauled her up here and shoved her in my face.

Jason: Did they harass her?

Carly: Jason, get a grip, okay? She was lurking around in the parking lot, praying that you'd show up. It's pathetic.

Jason: No, see, Elizabeth sees things a little differently than Carly does.

Carly: Oh, yeah, you're right. She's just a fool. I'm just a little irritating.

Jason: You're right about the last part.

Carly: Jason, come on, Elizabeth cannot figure out how she should feel about you. That's -- on one hand you're, like, the -- I don't know, the greatest thing she's ever seen. You're dangerous and you're wild and you're a complete --

Jason: Will you stop?

Carly: Come on! Elizabeth -- she doesn't know what to do. She can't take her eyes off of you. I mean -- okay. She gets close enough to you, but she can't touch. It's like she can't follow through if she has the chance because you're too intense, Jason. You're too fearless and fabulous and -- come on, Jason. You know it's true. I mean, you really should bail and there's something that just keeps you there.

Jason: It isn't like that.

Carly: No? How is it, then?

Jason: Doesn't matter.

Carly: No, come on, sure it does. Tell me.

Jason: Okay, will you promise to stay out of my life?

Carly: No. Tell me anyway.

Jason: How I feel about Elizabeth? None of your business.

Carly: Oh. Oh, okay.

 [Music plays]

Man: Come on, baby. Come on, baby. Come and get this. I got plenty here for you. I got 10 brand-new, clean 10's.

Second man: Whoo-whoo-whoo!

First man: Come here. I'll make it 100, baby.

Second man: Yeah!

First man: 100 bucks. 100 bucks! Come on, baby, turn around. Ooh, come here. Look at me. Look at me! Hey. Hey! Come on! Get off that stage! What are you doing?

Sonny: I'm taking you home.

[Crowd boos]

Coleman: What the hell -- Mr. Corinthos.

Sonny: Get out of here.

Coleman: Sure, man. Girls, come on, let's go. Come on, let's go! Go.

Sonny: Tell me how this happened.

Courtney: I needed a job, so I got one.

Sonny: At a place like this?

Courtney: What are you doing here anyway? What, are you following me around?

Sonny: What did A.J. do?

Courtney: Nothing.

Sonny: A.J. has to be the reason why you're doing this, right?

Courtney: Why do you blame him for everything?

Sonny: What did A.J. do!

Courtney: A.J. doesn’t even know about this job. He can never find out. Never.

A.J.: What happened?

Skye: I don't know, he just collapsed.

A.J.: Why?

Skye: I mean, he was fine. I don't know.

Jax: Alan and Monica know what they're doing.

Alan: Strong but tachy.

Monica: Edward, does your chest hurt?

Edward: Oh, my head.

Alan: Father, squeeze my fingers.

Edward: Stop shouting!

Alan: Squeeze my fingers.

Monica: Good.

Alan: Give me your other hand. Squeeze my fingers. Squeeze my fingers!

Edward: I am.

Monica: Edward, can you move your feet?

Alan: I think it might be a C.V.A.

Skye: What's that?

Monica: It's a stroke.

A.J.: We actually came together as a family to celebrate.

Alexis: I can't watch this.

Ned: Let's go.

Monica: What could've triggered this?

Alan: I don't know. There weren't any rhythm irregularities.

Monica: Skye, what did you say to him?

Skye: Nothing. He just gave me his present. He was fine.

Alan: Father? Father, don't, don't. Just take it easy.

Jax: Take it easy, Edward. Take it easy.

Monica: I've got a strong pulse.

Jax: Look, I'm going to see if I can flag down that ambulance at the turnoff.

A.J.: Can I see him?

Alan: I think that it would probably be a good idea.


A.J.: Hey. Your family is here, okay? You just hang in there. We're going to take care of you.

Jason: It doesn't matter how I feel. I can't get involved with anyone.

Carly: Why not?

Jason: It isn't fair.

Carly: Oh, so everyone gets to be happy but you.

Jason: I didn't say that.

Carly: Look, Sonny and I are finally solid. Why should you be alone?

Jason: Because my life is too dangerous, Carly.

Carly: Oh, and Sonny's isn't?

Jason: Elizabeth won't accept danger. She pretends it's a game.

Carly: Okay, then you need to find yourself a real woman. I'm not available. Jason, what is it with you and these wimpy, little, saccharine girls?

Jason: Will you please not start? Please?

Carly: What, you want little miss perfect? Go for it, okay? Get it out of your system. Get her out of the garage at least, okay?

Jason: I don't want to talk about this, Carly.

Carly: Oh, not that Elizabeth could ever appreciate you the way a real woman could. God, what a waste. Oh, well, I guess it's better for you to be with Elizabeth than me.

Jason: I don't want to be with you.

Carly: That's not the point.

Jason: Then why are we having this discussion?

Carly: Jason, it's not the point, okay? The point is I'm happy now. You are my best friend and I want you to be happy, too. And -- and -- all right, I'm willing to share you, even if it means I have to share you with a wannabe artist who follows you around like a little puppy dog. It's very grown up of me, isn't it?

Lucky: You know, Scotty, my dad always told me that you were a lousy poker player.

Scott: Is that so?

Lucky: Yeah, that's so. You don't know how to bluff.

Scott: Who's bluffing? You left your prints on the inside of Rick Webber's car. You thought it was going to burn up, didn't you?

Lucky: You see what I mean? He's showing his hand here.

Nikolas: You know, Scott, I'll bet you're really bad at chess, too. You're giving us way too much information, you know that?

Scott: Yeah, but, you see, fingerprints, they don't lie.

Lucky: Unlike district attorneys?

Nikolas: No, it's interim district attorneys.

Scott: You want to play a little game here?

Nikolas: Sure.

Scott: I'll play along, but let me just tell you what happened.

Nikolas: This ought to be good. Go ahead.

Lucky: Yeah.

Scott: You probably killed him up in the attic, and the little prince here wasn't afraid to get his hands dirty, so you threw him in the car, you doused him with vodka. Now, the big mistake was, see, your father would've known that Rick doesn't drink. He also wouldn't have left his prints on the inside of the car.

Lucky: Yeah.

Scott: But going over the cliff? He would've liked that. The fire's not bad, either.

Lucky: Yeah, you should know.

Scott: Car blows up, witness strolls in -- model witness -- but that's still not going to fly to the jury or to me or anybody else.

Lucky: Is that it?

Scott: For now, Lucky.

Nikolas: Good, then I say we're finished, huh? How about you?

Lucky: I am if you are.

Nikolas: Okay.

Scott: Cuff the young one here.

Nikolas: Excuse me? What are you doing here, Scott?

Lucky: He's just showing off again. That's all it is.

Scott: Lucky, you might want to pay attention to what he has to say.

Officer: You're under arrest for the murder of Rick Webber. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

Mac: Lucky Spencer?

Scott: Yeah, he doesn't look like a killer, does he?

Lucky: Hey, Mac, how are you?

Mac: Well, you aren't who I expected to see.

Scott: Did you get the medical examiner's report back?

Mac: Yeah. Yeah, I got it right here.

Scott: Well, it says that Rick Webber was dead when you put him in the car.

Mac: We don't discuss evidence in the squad room.

Scott: We do now.

Mac: Any good attorney --

Scott: Listen, Mac, okay, the district attorney's office is handling this case, and since I'm the district attorney, I will do what I want, when I want. Do you understand that?

Mac: You heard the man.

Scott: All right. Let's get him in the other room.

Nikolas: Mac, Mac, can he really do this?

Mac: He's the district attorney.

Nikolas: I don't care if he's the D.A. or not. Lucky, don't say a word, okay? Don't say anything.

Scott: Lucky, with what I have on you, I could put you away for life, but maybe I won’t.

Lucky: I didn't kill Rick Webber.

Scott: Then who did?

Alexis: I'm all right, Ned. Honestly, I am.

Ned: Any pain?

Alexis: No. Look, this is more bothersome to you, I'm sure.

Alan: We've got a possible C.V.A., Slurred speech, right hemiparesis.

Monica: He lost consciousness briefly. His pulse is strong now. He has a history of recent bypass, and I'll give you a list of his meds.

Ned: Skye had to have something to do with this. God only knows what she said to him.

Alexis: Or vice versa.

[Phone rings]

Alexis: Alexis Davis.

Nikolas: Alexis, it's me, it's Nikolas. Listen, I'm at the police station.

Alexis: Are you all right?

Nikolas: Yeah. Lucky's under arrest.

Alexis: What are charges?

Nikolas: Murder.

Alexis: I'm on my way. We got to go.

Paramedic: Thanks, we'll take it from here.

Alan: You go to the hospital. I'll ride with Father.

Paramedic: Ready? Let's go.

A.J.: I'm going to ride with Grandfather, as well.

Jax: You all right?

Skye: All this is my fault.

Jax: No, Skye, this is not your fault.

Skye: No, I did this to Edward. I did it.

Jason: I got to do what's best for Elizabeth.

Carly: And what makes you think that you're not what's best?

Jason: I got her kidnapped, for one thing.

Carly: She doesn't seem to hold it against you. Come on, Jason, whatever happened to letting people make their own choices?

Jason: Staying away from Elizabeth is my choice.

Carly: Okay, so you can look me in the eye and you can swear to me -- look me in the eye -- swear to me, come on, that you positively, categorically do not want to be with the little twit?

Jason: Concentrate on your own life and forget about Elizabeth.

Carly: I can't, Jason. She's going to get you killed.

Jason: I doubt that.

Carly: Jason, you just said that she treats this like a game. Okay, fine, you know what? Elizabeth wants to be with you. You should just be with her, you know? Let her see if she can live your life. Let her worry about you. Let her worry and see if you don't come home shot. Be relieved when you don't. Let her see if she can live your life and see if she can deal with it or not.

Jason: I already know she can’t.

Carly: Why, did you tell her?

Jason: Yeah, I did.

Carly: And then you kissed her? And you walked away? I know you, Jason. I know you better than yourself. Come on, you want to be with her? Take her, have some fun if it's possible.

Jason: I want you to stay out of this, Carly.

Carly: Come on, you know what? I will even -- I'll help her out, I'll give her some pointers -- not about sex, though, because she's on her own, although she probably needs it. Oh, God, you know, I don't even want to think about that.

Jason: Well, good, then don't, please.

Carly: Oh, God, I can't think about anything else now. Oh, I hate it when that happens. Okay, change the subject.

Jason: Okay, let's see. I think I'm going to ask her to paint you.

Carly: Ew!

Jason: No, it'd be kind of interesting.

Carly: Okay, double ew! Ew!

Jason: You could hang the picture up there, the fireplace, and you could just, like, look at yourself all day long.

Carly: Okay, I will be nice to her. I -- I won't even -- I will. I'll teach her something about your life.

Jason: Don't teach her anything.

Carly: I won't call her a twit. Not to her face at least.

Jason: All I want is to protect her.

Carly: All I want is to protect you, too, Jason. And maybe this time I can.

Alcazar: Mr. DiLucca.

Roy: Alcazar.

Alcazar: I trust your meeting with Corinthos went well.

Roy: Mr. Corinthos knows a great deal about you.

Alcazar: I would imagine.

Roy: He checked out some of your previous silent partners, previous associates, guys like me --

Alcazar: Mm-hmm.

Roy: Who haven't fared too well.

Alcazar: Accidents happen. I told you this early on.

Roy: So you did. Why are you after Jasper Jacks?

Alcazar: Isn't your concern.

Roy: You know that Corinthos is after you.

Alcazar: Sonny Corinthos will never touch me.

Roy: And why is that?

Alcazar: Because I have something he wants more than anything in this world.

Courtney: One more D.U.I. and A.J. goes to prison.

Sonny: I'm aware of that.

Courtney: Coleman agreed not to report the accident and he gave me a chance to pay for the damages.

Sonny: By stripping?

Courtney: A.J. can't find out about this. He can't or it would kill him. He'd start drinking again.

Sonny: So this is where you were the other night on your birthday?

Courtney: It's only temporary until I can pay for the damages.

Sonny: This is not good, none of this.

Courtney: A.J. told me that you used to own a strip club.

Sonny: Yeah, that's right, I did. So I know what happens in places like this, what it does to women who work there.

Courtney: I can deal.

Sonny: Oh -- you can't -- you can't change the look in your eye. I know that look, Courtney. You hate every second of this. Men grabbing you. When they slip money, huh? The only thing this place is going to bring you is pain.

Courtney: I can take it.

Sonny: Yeah, for a little while, right? And then one night you have a couple of drinks, take the edge off.

Courtney: Oh, God.

Sonny: Maybe a few pills so that --

Courtney: It's not like that.

Sonny: A lot of women can do this for a long time. They like the money. They have mortgages, you know, they have kids. They need money to -- for drugs.

Courtney: I am not on drugs, all right?

Sonny: I'm not saying that you are or that you ever will be. I'm not saying that these women are wrong. What I'm saying is there is nothing here for you. This place will kill you a little bit every night, and I'm not talking about physical. I'm talking about inside. It leaves you cold. You disappear.

Courtney: I'm out of here as soon as I pay off my debt.

Sonny: How much does A.J. owe this man?

Courtney: A lot. But my debt's almost paid. I make good money. I make more tips than anyone and then I give Coleman a share.

Sonny: Why do you think Coleman’s going to let you go?

Courtney: Because we have a deal.

Sonny: All right, you know, let me take care of this. I will promise you that you will never step foot on that stage again.

Courtney: Yeah. Okay, like I believe you for a second.

Courtney: If I walk out of this club with you, A.J. will be in jail first thing in the morning.

Sonny: Not necessarily.

Courtney: That's supposed to make me trust you? "Not necessarily"? You hate A.J. Maybe you have good reasons, maybe you don't, I don't care. I will not let you hurt him.

Sonny: We can work something out is what I'm saying.

Courtney: Like what? My husband stays out of jail if I leave him? Sounds like one of your deals.

Sonny: You don't have to put yourself through this.

Courtney: You tried to throw A.J. off a balcony right in front of me, Sonny. You stole his child. You hunted him down like some kind of animal to keep him from marrying me. But you know what? It didn't work. I love A.J. Quartermaine and I will do anything to keep him out of jail, anything to protect him from you.

Sonny: Do you love a man who gives you this kind of life?

Courtney: God, I wouldn't expect you to understand. And for all I know, you're going to go after him tonight. But I will tell you this. You destroy my husband, you destroy me. You will not be my brother. You'll be nothing to me.

Sonny: I am trying to help you.

Courtney: I can take care of myself.

Sonny: A.J.'s not worth it.

Courtney: He is to me.

Sonny: You're my family! I mean, it's my responsibility to look after you.

Courtney: A.J. is my family, too, every bit as much as you are. You do bad things to keep your family together, right? You make sacrifices that hurt, so why can't I?

Roy: So what do you have that Sonny wants?

Alcazar: So many questions.

Roy: Well, you've positioned me to go up against a very dangerous man and I need to know why. Or at the very least, what you've got for leverage against him.

Alcazar: You've grown arrogant.

Roy: I've always been arrogant. You just didn't notice.

Alcazar: Arrogance doesn't help me.

Roy: So what do you have that Corinthos wants?

Alcazar: Neither does a partner who asks too many questions.

Roy: Is this about his family? Is this about that woman? Some money? What? What is it about?

Alcazar: Let this go, DiLucca. Or as I may have mentioned, accidents happen.

Tony: Hi, Lesley.

Lesley: Hi, Tony.

Tony: How are you doing?

Lesley: Fine. Not so fine.

Tony: Mm-hmm.

Lesley: I spent the day with Lulu, who does not understand about her parents' elopement, if that's what it is. And she's full of questions for which I don't have answers, so I kept distracting her and giving her empty reassurances and all the time I was thinking, "Rick is dead."

Tony: I'm so sorry.

Lesley: So Amy came over to spend some time with Lulu, and I thought I would go somewhere quiet and think about Rick. And I wound up here, which is really fitting because of the time that we spent together, so much of it was in this hospital.

Tony: He was such a good guy, too. I mean, he wasn't perfect -- none of us are -- but did you know that in all the years that I knew him, over the years he made me realize that he loved you so deeply.

Lesley: Thank you. It was -- it was my idea to ask him back for the wedding. I thought it was another thing to make the day special for Laura, but selfishly, I needed closure. I needed to see Rick face to face in the places where we had lived our life and really let him go.

Tony: Hey. You know there's nothing wrong with that. And you know that you had no way of knowing that he was with this consortium that was trying to take over the hospital, and you had no way of knowing that he was going to be in a car wreck.

Lesley: I'm not blaming myself.

Tony: Good.

Lesley: I think -- I think I'm processing. I loved Rick Webber with all my heart. He made me happier and more miserable than anybody ever. And now he's gone and that shouldn't affect my life. We weren't married anymore. We didn't even live in the same state. He had a whole new life. But everything that we were -- the memory of those years, the little things that we shared as a couple that nobody else knows -- they're still with me. And they always will be.

[Pager beeps]

Tony: Ah. Perfect.

Lesley: Your big beeps.

Tony: I could get somebody to cover for me.

Lesley: Don't you dare. There's still enough doctor in me to know that the patients always take priority.

Tony: Well, you let me know if you hear from Laura.

Lesley: I will. Tony, thank you for sitting with me.

Tony: Hey. Ciao.

Skye: All I wanted was tonight to be perfect. Instead they're loading Edward into an ambulance.

Jax: He's in good hands.

Skye: He was saying terrible things about you, about us.

Jax: Skye --

Skye: He was saying that you never loved me, that our marriage would never last. That you raid companies, you raid lives. Why did I stand there and argue with him? I should've just walked away.

Jax: No, hey, this isn't your fault.

Skye: I should've just stayed with you.

Jax: Edward -- Edward cannot destroy our love, okay? No one can.

Jax: I'm going to get the car, okay?

[Car horn honks]

Nikolas: Come on, Lucky, don't say a word. Just wait for Alexis, please.

Mac: All Lucky has to do is say he wants a lawyer.

Nikolas: You think he will notice, Mac? The guy is out of control.

Scott: All right, here's the deal, Lucky. Spend the night in jail or tell me where your father is.

Lucky: Drop the charges first, Baldwin.

Scott: What charges? You haven't been booked yet. Now, where's Luke?

Lucky: I told you, he's in Vegas.

Scott: Where in Vegas?

Lucky: With my mom in Vegas!

Scott: Where? I don't want to have to ask you again. Now, where is he?

Alexis: This interview is over.

Scott: You're damn right it's over. We're going to book him. The charge is murder.

Alexis: No one at the club has heard from Luke? Did he leave a number? Did he leave a forwarding address? What? Hey, do you have any idea where he is?

Scott: Luke and Laura are on their honeymoon. Did you know that? They skipped their own wedding.

Alexis: Never mind. Where are they?

Scott: Why don't you ask your client? He's covering for his father.

Alexis: Thanks.

Alexis: Do you know who killed Rick Webber?

Lucky: No.

Alexis: Then who did? You need to tell me the truth, and you need to tell me now.

Sonny: Most of the women in this club don't have a choice. You do. I want you to take it.

Courtney: You want me to trust you again? I want you to stay out of this. I want you to leave here now and I don't want you to come back. Don't bother A.J., and do not mess up my deal with the club owner.

Sonny: Okay, you know what, Courtney? I understand pride and I understand making choices and having to deal with the consequences, good or bad. You married A.J. and now you want to stand by him, even though he's made mistakes. But you're willing to break your own heart to protect him. That's what I don't --

Courtney: Oh, God, just blame A.J. all you want --

Sonny: Would you let me finish? I could end this tonight. But I won’t. I'm going to do what you want. I'm going to stay out it, but I want something from you in exchange for my silence.

Courtney: You're blackmailing me.

Sonny: I want you to think about what's happened to you since you came to Port Charles. I want you to think about what you've done because you wanted to, and I want you to think about what you've done because of me, to show me, you know, that I'm wrong, to prove a point.

Courtney: Nothing that I've done is about you. I do not live my life to please the almighty Sonny Corinthos.

[Courtney sighs]

Sonny: You don't have to stay where you're unhappy because you can't admit you're wrong.

Courtney: I wasn't. A.J. just made one mistake, I'm fixing it, and we're going to be happy.

Sonny: Poor kid.

Courtney: Don't act like you're sorry for me.

Sonny: Okay, you know what? When the debt is paid up and you want to quit and Coleman doesn't let you, I want you to tell him that you're my sister and the arrangement that's happening here is a sign of disrespect. And the only reason I tolerated it was because you asked me to. But my patience is at an end.

Coleman: You know, a husband like you got? I can see why you have a man on the side, okay? But Sonny Corinthos? You might've mentioned it, you know.

Courtney: Sonny and I aren't like that.

Coleman: Fine. Okay, whatever arrangements you guys have, you have. Should I plan for my club to burn down tonight?

Courtney: Sonny's not coming back, okay? He's not going to bother you.

Coleman: Then we're still on?

Courtney: A deal's a deal.

Coleman: Why do I feel like there's more to this, then? Huh?

Courtney: My makeup's a mess.

Coleman: All right, you know what? You've had enough for one night. Go on home.

Courtney: Are you sure?

Coleman: Yeah. I will see you tomorrow.

Courtney: Thanks.

A.J.: Should I call Grandmother?

Ned: No, no, not until we know for sure what's going on. What do the tests say?

A.J.: Are you sure it was a stroke?

Alan: Yes.

Ned: How severe?

Alan: We don't know yet. Something must've triggered it.

Ned: So what did you say to Grandfather?

Jax: Edward was congratulating Skye. Isn't that what you told me?

Skye: Yes, something like that.

Ned: Why would Grandfather congratulate you for marrying Jax, hmm?

Jax: Exactly. I mean, just the thought of bringing me into the Quartermaine family is what caused this. It's my fault.

Tony: Edward's stable.

Monica: Yes, and he would like to speak to Skye alone.

Alexis: You found Rick Webber's body in the attic?

Lucky: That's right.

Alexis: And the only thing that you could think to do was to move his body into his car, drive his car off a cliff, and then set Gia up as a witness?

Lucky: Well, you know, it sounded like a reasonable solution at the time.

Alexis: It must be genetic.

Lucky: I didn't kill him.

Alexis: You can't always protect your family, you know, good intentions or no.

Lucky: Hey, you know, all I really need is for you to defend me, okay?

Alexis: I will. I'll be in touch.

Skye: I have the contract, you old fool. Once I destroy it, you'll never be able to hurt me again.

Edward: I have copies.

[Monitor alarm beeps]

Alan: Two milligrams of lorazepam!

Monica: Get out of here.

Tony: He may have a bleed.

Alan: I think he's having another stroke.

Tony: Yeah, could be.

Monica: Okay.

A.J.: What happened?

Jax: What did Edward say to you?

Skye: He -- he forgives me.

Alan: Father has lost consciousness. We may be dealing with a coma.

A.J.: I can't take this.

Monica: Alan? We need you.

Jason: All I need is for you to leave this alone.

Carly: Jason, you're a sitting duck when it comes to these goody-goody types. Look, I saw the damage that robin did and I don't -- I don't want to ever see you hurt like that again.

[Door opens]

Carly: Sonny.

Carly: Okay, what happened?

Sonny: What happened? Courtney's working as a stripper.

Carly: What?

Sonny: A.J. got drunk one night, crashed his car into a strip joint, and Courtney’s paying off the damages by working there.

Carly: Courtney is taking off her clothes so she can cover for that weasel?

Jason: What do you want to do?

Sonny: She asked me to stay out of it.

Carly: Doesn't she realize that you could take care of this for her?

Sonny: Okay, do me a favor, okay? I want you to -- I want you to watch over Courtney whenever she's working at the Oasis.

Jason: Done.

Sonny: All right, I -- make sure she doesn't see you. And don't jump in unless something happens. Other than that, just report back to me.

Jason: You know, we could end this tonight.

Sonny: Yeah, but if I interfere, I lose my sister forever.

Carly: Hey, where's your jacket?

Sonny: I left it at the club. You know, I saw her dancing -- I kind of lost it a little bit.

Carly: Okay, you know what? She's going to get through this, okay? She's gong to find a way.

Sonny: Yeah. She doesn't trust me to help her.

Carly: Hey, you know what? You just sent Jason to guard her, okay? So now you know she's safe. And you just need to let Courtney take care of the rest. It's up to her.

Sonny: She still does not see what A.J. is. I don't get it. I mean, what do we -- what do I have to do --

Carly: Okay, you know what? You need to stop telling her. You need to leave it alone and stop telling her what to do, and she -- look, she will come around. And one day she's going to have to choose, and she's going to choose you.

Sonny: Yeah?

Carly: Yeah.

Sonny: And you knew this, how?

Carly: Because you're a good man, Sonny. That's why I married you -- all three times.

Sonny: Yeah.

Courtney: I'm looking for A.J. Quartermaine. He called me earlier, something about his grandfather.

A.J.: Courtney.

Courtney: A.J.

A.J.: Hi.

Courtney: I came as soon as I could.

A.J.: Grandfather had a stroke. At least that's what my father seems to think.

Courtney: Well, what happened?

A.J.: Well, Grandfather just collapsed at the party. I thought he was dying. He may be. Right now the family's in ICU. I just -- I had to get away.

Courtney: But you don't have to be alone anymore. You have me. You always will.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Lucky: You want a suspect? I'll point fingers.

Scott: Come to confess your part in Rick Webber's murder?

Elizabeth: Carly, I need you to give a message to Jason immediately.

A.J.: I don't care if Courtney’s your sister. You stay away.
