Ned: I will do whatever it takes to keep your child away from Sonny.
Sonny: He says he's got something that I want.
Jax: Alcazar does plan to take you down.
Courtney: A.J. gets crazy when he's drinking.
Jason: My orders are to guard you.
Courtney: He's in trouble. I'm not.
Laura: No! I killed him, didn't I? I killed my father.
Elizabeth: You were on a yacht.
Zander: There was this guy --
Nurse: Dr. Meadows is just finishing with a delivery. She'll be out in a few minutes to go over the test results.
Carly: Alexis. Is everything all right with the baby?
Carly: You know, I hear that you've been taking one case after another. Do you think that's wise?
Alexis: Carly, you need to try to remember that every aspect of my life is none of your business.
Carly: I'm just showing concern for my husband's child. I'm not afraid to talk about it, okay? We are in the best place that Sonny and I have ever been in, and you know what, I think him knowing the truth about his baby --
Alexis: If this is yet another plea to get me to tell Sonny, you can forget it. His world will never touch my baby the way it touched my sister.
Carly: Okay, you are blaming Sonny for something he --
Ned: Okay. As always, a pleasure, Carly. Too bad you can't stay.
Ned: She's gone. Stop stressing. It's not good for the baby.
Alexis: I can't help it. Why won't someone just drop a house on her?
Man: Mr. Alcazar, I have a lead on Zander Smith and Elizabeth Webber.
Alcazar: I don't want a lead on them. I want them dead.
Man: I'll handle it within the hour.
Alcazar: Before you kill Smith, find out every person he's spoken to and use the girl. If Smith told her anything about who's on this yacht and she passes it on to Morgan, things could go wrong for everyone.
Zander: Hey. I was getting worried about you.
Elizabeth: I took a lot of wrong turns to make sure no one followed me.
Zander: Nobody took any shots at you or anything, did they?
Elizabeth: Not that I noticed. Have you remembered anything?
Zander: No. Just what I told you earlier -- the man and a yacht and, separate from him, a woman.
Elizabeth: Okay. Well, look, I brought you your favorite meal from Kelly’s. I thought it might help trigger something.
Zander: Nothing. But it looks good. Thank you.
Elizabeth: Why don't you eat?
Zander: You know, in case I haven't said it, thank you. I'm really sorry that I got you into all this mess. Have I gotten you into other disasters before?
Elizabeth: Well, I got you into one once. Listen, Zander, whoever is trying to kill you saw us at the hospital together.
Elizabeth: They know I'm helping you, and whatever it is you can't remember, I'm sure they think that you've already told me. We need help. I want to go to someone, another friend.
Elizabeth: His name is Jason.
Zander: No. No.
Sonny: This is the second time you've gone against one of my orders.
Jason: My order was to take care of your sister. And keeping A.J. alive and out of jail was what Courtney wanted, so that's what I did. I took care of her.
Sonny: But that's not what I wanted. I wanted -- I wanted A.J. out of Courtney’s life, and you stopped that from happening. Why? Are you loyal to me or not?
Courtney: Just admit it, A.J. You look at me and you see a stripper.
A.J.: I don’t.
Courtney: You -- I felt you flinch, okay? You think I'm dirty, right? You -- you can't get this out of your head, can you?
A.J.: No, Courtney, I didn't flinch --
Courtney: Hey. Just -- you have to believe me. You have to believe me. I never wanted to do this, I hated every second of it, and I hate that you saw me like that.
A.J.: Stop it right now, okay? I want you to stop it. I don't want you to talk this way about yourself or even think it. You are and always will be everything good to me.
Courtney: Then why did you stop -- why did you stop making love to me?
Laura: No. No! No!
Luke: It's all right, sweetie.
Luke: Stay back, stay back.
Mac: Luke, don't move.
Mac: You're under arrest for the murder of Dr. Rick Webber. Cuff him.
Luke: What are you talking about?
Scott: Laura, everything is going to be okay.
Luke: No! She needs me! Don't do this!
Scott: All right, listen, I'm going to talk to --
Luke: Get out!
Scott: Get him out of the way.
Luke: She needs me! Don't!
Laura: No! Stop it! Don't!
Scott: Laura --
Laura: Don't --
Scott: It's me. It's Scott.
Luke: Don't do this, Baldwin! Let me take care of her, not you!
Scott: Look, Laura, you've known me most of your life. It's okay. Let me help you. You can trust me.
Luke: Don't listen to him! Baby, don't listen to him!
Scott: Laura --
Laura: Help me, Scotty. Help me.
Laura: Help me.
Luke: No! No.
Elizabeth: Do you remember Jason?
Zander: No. Should I? Do I know him?
Elizabeth: Well, he's a friend of mine, and I trust him. He'll know what to do. He knows places to hide people and how to do it. And this yacht you remember? There's a yacht in the harbor that belongs to man named Alcazar.
Zander: You think Alcazar is the guy who's trying to shoot me?
Elizabeth: I'm guessing he's the one who wants you dead. Alcazar is a pretty dangerous man. Jason's our best chance on getting away from him.
Zander: Is he your boyfriend or something?
Elizabeth: Well, he's -- he's just a friend. He's a friend like you. But like I said, I trust him and we need help.
Zander: Wait, you're going now?
Elizabeth: Well, the sooner we get Jason involved, the safer we'll be.
Zander: All right, well, I'm coming with you.
Elizabeth: No, no, no. No. No, you're the target, remember? You need to stay out of sight. I'll be as quick as I can, okay?
Zander: Okay. Just be careful, okay?
Elizabeth: I will.
Zander: All right.
Elizabeth: Lock the door behind me, okay?
Sonny: A.J. should be in jail right now, on his way to prison for torching the Oasis. Thanks to you, he's free, getting ready to plow my sister into another brick wall when he gets drunk again. What if she doesn't walk away next time, Jason?
Jason: A.J. is her choice. We may hate it, Sonny, and you know I don't like A.J., but nothing you can say is going to change the way your sister lives her life.
Sonny: What are you talking about? You were the one person I never had to second-guess.
Jason: What do you mean, second-guess?
Sonny: Well, if I told you to do something, you would do it. If I cannot trust you blind, I can't trust you at all. Are you loyal or not?
Jason: How did this get to be about my loyalty? You gave me my first job. You taught me respect. You taught me how to be in this business. In return, I've never been anything but loyal to you.
Sonny: Not this time. Not with Zander.
Jason: Oh, come on. That's a low blow. You know how I feel about Elizabeth. There's nothing I haven't done for you. And the first time -- the first time I go a different way and I'm trying to help your sister, you question my loyalty?
Sonny: This wasn't a choice. It was an order.
Jason: You ordered me to take care of your sister and that's what I did. I made sure that she was all right. It was her choice to marry A.J. -- to love him, to want to forgive him, to want to protect him.
Sonny: Not if it gets her killed.
Jason: Sonny, we're in a business that could get you killed. Carly tried to stop you once and it took you over a year to forgive her.
Sonny: You know the kind of monster A.J. is. You know how much he's hurt Carly, Michael, and Courtney. I had a chance to get him clear of her!
Jason: That is Courtney’s choice.
Sonny: She doesn't know any better! He's going to -- he's going to hurt her, I wanted her safe. Why do I keep having to justify myself to you?
Carly: Okay, time-out. Time-out here, okay? You both want the same thing, okay? You both want Courtney to be happy and alive, so take a break here, okay, because this isn't getting anywhere and you're saying things that you don't mean.
Sonny: You know what, this is -- A.J.'s not worth it anyway, so -- I just want to know if I can trust you.
Jason: You can trust me.
Sonny: Good. Um -- leave Courtney and A.J. alone. You're off them. Um -- we got a lot of other things that we got to deal with right now.
Jason: I agree.
Sonny: All right.
Carly: Okay, you know what? You're right. A.J. is not worth this. So what has got you so out of control?
Luke: Where'd Baldwin take my wife?
Mac: To the hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
Luke: She doesn't need that!
Mac: You want to help Laura? Don't put her through any more. Tell us what happened in the attic. You killed Rick Webber and Laura saw it. Luke, Baldwin is all over this case. He'll get it out of her. Is that what you want? Confess so we can avoid a trial. Laura's obviously in no condition to testify.
Luke: So you got the firing squad all lined up and ready to fire again, I see. You've convicted me already. I didn't even get a phone call. Nobody read me my rights! That's okay, bubba, I know them. I ain't saying another word until you get me a lawyer.
Alexis: Did you read this?
Ned: Yes. What are you doing?
Alexis: Luke is a friend.
Ned: Please, and you are pregnant. Alexis, you can't keep going like this. You also can't keep letting people like Carly get under your skin. Is this about Kristina?
Ned: The way you're driving yourself. I mean, first you take Lucky on, and now Alan tells me you're going to start representing Skye? Why?
Alexis: Because I'm a lawyer. I am paid to defend people. That's why they call it a profession.
Ned: Okay, listen -- I hurt every second I think about what happened to Kristina. But you -- I know you, and you're hiding in your work, okay? Which wouldn't be bad except for the doctor told you to slow down and reduce the stress in your life. Now, is Dr. Meadows aware that you're increasing your workload? What did you talk about?
Alexis: I haven't talked to her yet. She's in the middle of a delivery.
Ned: Alexis, if you want her to deliver your baby in a few months, you better slow down.
Alexis: Alexis Davis. Just stay -- just don't say anything, all right? I'll be right there. Luke. He's been arrested. He's innocent, you know, and I can't let him get railroaded.
Ned: Look, what -- what of the test results? What about the test results?
Alexis: Will you do me a favor? I have to go down there. I don't know long she's going to be. Will you just stay here, get the test results, tell her that I will call her and we'll talk about it. Please.
Ned: Please pace yourself, okay? No matter how good a lawyer you are, you have to be a mother first.
Alexis: I know that. I can do both. Scott Baldwin is up to something and I can't let him pin it on Luke.
Laura: No, no, no, no.
Man: We need you to calm down.
Laura: No, I don't want a shot!
Scott: Hey, hey, stop it!
Scott: What's going on?
Orderly: Who are you?
Scott: I'm Scott Baldwin. I'm the district attorney.
Orderly: I have orders to sedate --
Laura: Please stop them. They're going to hurt me, Scotty! Please help me! No!
Orderly: We need you to calm down. You're going to hurt yourself.
Laura: No, I don't want that!
Scott: Just a second, just a second.
Laura: I don't want that!
Scott: Wait, wait, wait!
Scott: Whoa, just a second.
Orderly: Her doctor gave clear orders --
Scott: Okay, listen, I will take full responsibility for anything, all right, here? Now just get out. Let me handle this.
Scott: Laura -- Laura, Laura, it's okay. It's all right. It's me. All right? You -- you're safe. Everything's fine.
Laura: I'm scared.
Scott: What are you scared of?
Laura: I did something terrible.
Scott: What did you do?
A.J.: Wait a minute. I didn't pull away because of you, Courtney. You're perfect. You are. I'm the one who failed you. You would've never -- you would've never worked at that club if it weren't for me. In fact, you take me out of the equation, you wouldn't even know it existed. I take you out of the equation, and I'm in jail. Obviously, I'm -- I'm not very good at this marriage thing or loving you the way you deserve.
Courtney: I have told you this before and I'll keep reminding you --
Courtney: Saying that you failed -- it's like saying a man underneath an avalanche isn't skiing very well. It just -- hey, don't quit. A.J., I need -- I need to know that you aren't going to give up on us or our marriage. I should've been honest. I should've given us a chance to at least work off our debt to Coleman together.
A.J.: You were afraid I'd start drinking. That's all. It turns out you were right.
Courtney: You only started drinking because you saw me stripping.
A.J.: No, I drank because you would've never done something like that if it hadn't been for me. We've only been married, what, less than a year, and look what I've already pushed you to. Look what you've done because you thought you had no other choice. It's all on me, Courtney. It's not you. But listen, if you start thinking of robbing a bank as the only way of bailing me out of something, would you please come to me first? Please? You're my best friend. I love you. I love you.
Elizabeth: Jason? Hey.
Jason: What -- what's wrong?
Elizabeth: I need your help. Zander's in trouble and I think it's with that guy Alcazar.
Jason: Zander's connected to Alcazar?
Elizabeth: I don't know for sure, but somebody's trying to kill him and he doesn't know who.
Jason: Look, Elizabeth, I have done so much for that guy. I can't do anything else.
Elizabeth: Will you just trust me enough to hear me out, please? Okay, listen, somebody hit Zander over the head and threw him in the water. A boat captain found him. He can't remember anything. His memory is completely blocked. Dr. Jones thinks it's -- it's probably temporary, but we don't know for sure.
Jason: Come on, come on. Wait a minute. He can't remember?
Elizabeth: He's not faking, Jason. He had no idea who I was. And then I took him to the hospital and somebody took a shot at him.
Jason: Okay. Let's just say you're right and Alcazar is trying to kill him. It's to shut him up. Zander knows something he is not supposed to know, and now Alcazar thinks you know it, too. Elizabeth, you're a target just as much as Zander is.
[Knock on door]
Man: Zander? Elizabeth sent me. It's Jason. Elizabeth said you need some help.
Alexis: I'm here to see my client, Luke Spencer.
Mac: When Luke called you, did he mention that his wife is in the hospital psych ward? Laura is afraid of Luke. So why don't you do her and everyone else a favor and get Spencer to do the right thing for once in his life and tell the truth.
Alexis: Why don't you do the right thing and curb your bias against my client and do your job. From what I understand, you and Scott Baldwin have more speculation and wishful thinking than you have hard evidence.
Luke: Thank you for coming. Look, I got no time to waste. I have to get to my wife. How do we get me out of here?
Alexis: I need you to do something that you're really not very good at at all. I need you to tell me the truth about what happened in the attic, or I can't help you or Laura.
Scott: Laura -- Laura, you know that I've always protected you, right?
Scott: Laura, I -- I just want to help. You got to tell me what you did that's making you so scared. Just -- just tell me, okay? I'm just here to help.
Laura: You've always protected me.
Scott: Yes. Yes, I have, and I always will, no matter what. No matter what happens, I will always protect you. Now, did you see what happened to Rick the night that he died?
Laura: He was trying to protect me.
Scott: In the attic that night? What about Luke? Was he there? Did -- did Luke do something?
Laura: No, he didn’t. I did it. I didn't mean to. I didn't --
Scott: Wait, what -- what did you do?
Laura: I -- I -- I killed my father. I did it. I -- I killed my own father. I did it.
Carly: Okay. Something's wrong because that was not like you. You know that Jason is the most loyal person in the world and especially to you.
Sonny: I can't really discuss this with you.
Carly: Try. Hey. If you gave Jason an order and he didn't follow through, you know he had a reason.
Sonny: I know -- I know Jason's loyal. I know that, you know -- and I know he believes that every person on the planet has the right to do whatever the hell they want to do. I just didn't think that he'd apply it to my sister staying with A.J.
Carly: You don't see it, do you? Jason saved A.J. for you.
Sonny: What are you talking about, Carly?
Carly: Sweetheart, you told me that if A.J. went to prison, that you thought Courtney was going to blame you and that she was going to hate you for the rest of your life.
Sonny: At least she'd live to do it. What if A.J. kills her when he drinks and drives again?
Carly: You're right. You know, you should order Jason to grab Courtney, lock her in her room for the rest of her life. And if he doesn't do it, you tell him that he's disloyal.
Sonny: Okay, I get your point. That was kind of a cheap shot, but I'll let that go.
Carly: That's my point. You don't take cheap shots at Jason. Me, yes, but that's different. It's fair game because I take enough at you. Jason is different. You are not mad at him. Something else has you lashing out and angry. What is it?
Sonny: It's a bad time, you know? I am not -- I tell you, I'm not sorry that A.J. knows that he turned my sister into a stripper. It's just that the -- the way I handled it humiliated her. And I hate when I push myself to do things when I don't think them through.
Carly: Hey. Can you tell me what's got you feeling so out of control?
Sonny: Okay. I'll tell you. I know who's coming after me. His name is Alcazar.
Carly: Who is he?
Sonny: An arms dealer. I never met him and never did business with him. I didn't even hear his name until he set up Roy DiLucca to go against me.
Carly: I don't understand.
Sonny: I don't, either, you know. A man I don't know targets -- targets me, dismantles -- tries to dismantle my life? The only way you fight a man like that is to find out what he wants, why he's coming after you. I don't know. But when I find out, I'm going to shut him down.
Elizabeth: All Zander remembers is that he was on a yacht and there was a man and a woman, and he remembers questions but he doesn't have a sense of who was asking them.
Jason: How did he know to go to Kelly’s?
Elizabeth: The boat captain brought him in to call 911. I happened to be working.
Jason: Okay. Where do you have Zander right now?
Elizabeth: Come on, I'll take you.
Jason: No, no, no. I want you to stay in my apartment where the guards can watch you.
Elizabeth: Zander barely trusts me, Jason. He's not --
Jason: Somebody is trying to kill Zander. I don't want them getting you instead.
Elizabeth: We're wasting time. We need -- we just need to get Zander to a place where Alcazar can't find him, okay?
Jason: Okay, just listen to me, then. You need to do what I tell you to do when I tell you to do it without question until it's safe again.
Zander: Where's Elizabeth?
Man: I sent her to rent a car. I wanted to save some time. She'll meet us back here.
Zander: You know, I don't like her wandering around. Somebody took a shot at us at the hospital today.
Man: Yeah, she told me, but she's good. She knows how to stay out of sight. The important thing right now is to figure out why someone's after you. Elizabeth says you have temporary amnesia. Must be from the blow to your head. So what do you remember?
Zander: Uh -- I remember a yacht and a guy, and --
Man: Can you describe the man?
Luke: I didn't kill Rick Webber. They got no evidence that I did, so they can't hold me, can they?
Alexis: That's a nice try, Luke. You and I have a very colorful history, and I've just spent a considerable amount of time defending your son in the same murder case.
Luke: Thank you. I need to get out of here because I have to see my wife.
Alexis: Then you need to tell me the truth about what happened in the attic.
Luke: Alexis, all you've got to do is point out that they got no evidence that I was even there.
Alexis: You haven't been here. You haven't watched Scott Baldwin pull out ever dirty trick in the book. I wouldn't be surprised if all kinds of evidence shows up against you because he's planted it. He is determined to pin this on you, Luke, and you've made it easier for him by running.
Luke: Well, since when is it a crime to go away with your wife for a little weekend?
Alexis: You're stonewalling the wrong person. You want me to mount a defense, I need strategy. And that means you have to tell me what you are hiding. So why don't we sit here together and clean out the skeletons in your closet before someone else does it for you.
Luke: Where's Laura? What's happened to her? I have to go see her now.
Scott: Well, she's not doing so well because of you.
Luke: Scott, you have to let me see her!
Alexis: You are either going to have to charge him with something or release him. You have no evidence, you have no witnesses, you have no murder weapon, you have no motive.
Scott: I've got everything I need. Now, either confess or we'll go right to arraignment.
Alexis: Fine. I'll wake up the judge. You should know the rules by now -- don't speak until I'm back in this room.
Scott: I think we need to have a little chitchat about what happened up in the attic.
Courtney: This is the first time since the accident that I've -- I've been close to you without feeling guilty about keeping something from you.
A.J.: You were just protecting us. I'll never forget that.
Courtney: I want to forget all of it.
A.J.: Done. From now on, I'm a dock worker, you're a waitress. Just your run-of-the-mill American couple living the American dream -- love, happiness, a couple squeaky toys for the porch. Does that work?
Courtney: Um, yeah, except for you are not run-of-the-mill to me.
Man: What did this man look like?
Zander: I don't know, and I may never know. I mean, he could be my father for all I know. And I may never find out. The doctor said I may never get my memory back. Either way, I want to cut Elizabeth loose before she knows anything. I'm thinking -- I'm thinking that the best way to do that is if I take off before she ever gets back.
Man: Put the coffee down. And keep your hands where I can see them.
Alexis: Yeah, I just have to file a motion and then I leave. I'll take care of it. Thanks.
Ned: So I went over the test results with Dr. Meadows.
Alexis: So, what, more calcium?
Ned: She said -- and I quote -- "if Alexis wants to deliver a healthy, full-term baby, she has to cut back on the stress in her life," which means you're no longer to work more than three days a week. Three normal days.
Alexis: Okay. I get it. I hear it. It's not going to be a problem. The D.A. doesn’t have any evidence on Luke anyway, so I'll be able to wrap this up. I just need to get him released and then I'll be done with the whole thing.
Laura's voice: I did it. I didn't mean to. I didn't --
Scott’s voice: Wait, what -- what did you do?
Laura's voice: I -- I killed my father.
Luke: Are you satisfied?
Scott: I suspected that for some time.
Luke: Well, then why didn't you let me get her away from here?
Sonny: I don't know what Alcazar wants except to wipe me out. He sells weapons and ammunition on the black market, he's based in Europe, and he's targeting Jax.
Sonny: Jax claims that he sabotaged some big oil deal. Maybe -- I don't know -- maybe he's lying. Maybe they're setting me up, making me think that Alcazar's going after Jax.
Carly: Okay. You know, Jax -- he is a backstabber. But dealing with somebody who's dealing in illegal weapons -- that is not his style.
Sonny: Well, Jax says, you know, he doesn't know why the guy is going after him, either. You don't do business this way. You know, you don't target a man without going after something -- revenge to get what's his. Alcazar should be negotiating at this point.
Carly: Okay, would it be bad business for you to negotiate, to call him, to contact him?
Sonny: Well, I would, you know, if it doesn't get you anything.
Carly: Sweetie, you know what, you're going to figure this out. I know you will. And I just want you to know that I'm here for you for whatever you need.
Sonny: All I'm trying to say is this should've happened six months ago. You know that?
Sonny: When I didn't have much to lose. Now when I think about taking a risk, it makes me vulnerable.
Carly: Or now you are so much stronger because you have us. You have so much more to fight for.
Sonny: That's a good point.
Carly: Hey. You have any regrets?
Sonny: Nothing. I'm just glad I got you home.
Carly: You know, six months ago I was miserable, but it's all worth it because it has led us to where we are right now. We are so strong that no one can tear us apart. Don't you agree? Hey, what do you want?
Sonny: A kiss would be nice.
Alcazar: You all right?
Alcazar: Now you want to go ashore. There's nothing to go back to except people who'd hurt you again. You need to trust me. I'm only thinking of you and our future together.
Woman: There is no future.
Elizabeth: Zander? Zander, it's me, Elizabeth.
Jason: Wait, wait, wait. Here. You wait right there.
Elizabeth: Oh, my God. Where's Zander?
Jason: You work for Alcazar. What does he want? You'd better start talking to me. What did Alcazar mean when he said he has what Sonny wants more than anything in the world?
Elizabeth: Jason, Zander's gone.
Alexis: I spoke to the judge's clerks, who are set to proceed with the arraignment. Now, you need to repeat after me because this is what you're going to say. "Your honor, I plead not guilty."
Luke: There's a change in plans.
Alexis: Luke, if you want to get out of here tonight --
Luke: I'm confessing. I killed Rick Webber.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Scott: You going to confess to this, Spencer, or what?
Alexis: I want you to tell me what happened in the attic the night that Rick died.
Alcazar: Your daughters are splendid.
Felicia: Stay away from them.
