General Hospital Transcript Thursday 9/5/02
Proofread by Kathy
>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Lucky: Scott Baldwin’s trying to pin all of this on Dad.
Laura: All of what?
Alexis: As your attorney, I cannot allow you to confess to a crime that you didn't commit.
Luke: Then you're fired.
Skye: What I feel for you is real.
Jax: I don't trust you, Skye.
Carly: I am exactly where I belong and I’m not letting you face this alone.
Jason: Let go of the doorknob and step back. I'm a friend. I'll help you get out of here.
Alexis: Sorry I'm late.
Jax: That's all right. Was it work-related or a side effect of impending motherhood?
Alexis: Work -- specifically, the challenges of representing the least most cooperative client, Luke Spencer, which doesn't excuse my being late for you. Have you heard anything more about the mysterious enemy?
Jax: Yeah. His name is Alcazar.
Jax: You ever heard of him?
Felicia: You like?
Roy: I like very much.
Felicia: I'm ready to dance all night.
Roy: Would you settle for a rain check and a drink, maybe?
Felicia: What's Alcazar done now?
Roy: Actually, nothing for a change. It's Luke. He sent out an S.O.S.
Luke: Barbara. Hey, what the hell are you doing here?
Bobbie: I saw the bat signal.
Luke: Huh. Who ratted me out?
Bobbie: Felicia and Tony and half the hospital. Oh, I heard from everybody except for you. And I'd have been here sooner, but it's hell hiking your way out of Yellowstone Park.
Luke: So how was the vacation?
Bobbie: Have you signed a confession?
Luke: Not yet.
Bobbie: Then don't. Go to trial and let Laura clear you.
Scott: Hi. How you doing?
Laura: Who are you?
Scott: Uh, I'm an old friend, Laura.
Laura: Oh, wait a minute, I -- I do know you. I know you. You're a friend of my parents, right? Did they send you to get me out of here? Did they? Please, oh, please, tell them I'll do anything, anything they want. I -- I will wear anything they want me to wear and I'll -- I'll get on the honor's roll -- I will -- and I'll never, ever break curfew again, never, but I don't belong here. Please, get me out.
Zander: Hope you learned this game from me.
Elizabeth: Hmm -- nope.
Zander: Did I do anything positive for you at all? Did I endear myself in any way or did I spend all my time just ticking people off?
Carly: You're my husband and I am not going anywhere.
Sonny: Johnny's fired.
Carly: Johnny's job is to guard Leticia and Michael. It was my decision to get off the plane, and Johnny or anyone else -- no one was going to stop me, okay? So you're mad at me. It's fine. Be mad at me for a few minutes and then get over it, okay?
Sonny: What about Michael?
Carly: Michael's fine.
Sonny: He needs to be with his mother.
Carly: He needs to be with both of us. And you know what, as soon as all of this is over, we will go to him together. We took vows, remember, to stick together no matter what. Just because you're going through a rough patch does not mean --
Sonny: "A rough patch"? Is that what you think this is? I needed you to go to the island because all hell is about to break loose.
Carly: So let it.
Jason: I almost got it unlocked. Just hang in there.
Jason: Hello? You don't need to hide. I can help you.
Scott: Laura, all I want to do is just get you out of here.
Laura: Well, then convince my mom and dad that this is the wrong place for me! I thought we worked this out. I told them that I wouldn't cut school anymore, that I can get my grades back up! But I don't know what they want!
Scott: Laura, everybody that loves you, we want to get you out of here. It's just going to take some time.
Laura: I can't stand it here! I can't stand it!
Scott: Listen to me, listen to me, you can, you can do this. You're very strong. You have a lot of strength and you can get through this.
Laura: But why? Why am I here? I mean, shouldn't I get to know that?
Scott: Yes. Yes, you should. Okay, everybody that loves you, see, made some bad judgment calls. We -- we screwed things up for you in a really bad way.
Laura: Then why can't you fix it?
Scott: Well, it's -- it's just going to take time. See, unfortunately, I wish we could go back and start and not do what we did because we, you know --
Laura: Not do what?
Scott: A few years back, in your parents' garage attic --
Laura: No, no, no, I don't want to talk about that! No. It scares me.
Scott: Okay, listen, you know what? I promise you we'll never, ever, ever talk about that again.
Luke: The last thing Laura needs is to have to deal with a couple of shark lawyers.
Bobbie: Well, one of those sharks will be Scott, who adores her, and the other one will be Alexis.
Luke: I fired her.
Luke: I know what I'm doing, Barbara.
Bobbie: Oh. Because Alexis believes that Laura is capable of taking the stand. Alexis believes that Laura can testify that Rick came at her and all you were trying to do was defend her.
Luke: Look, you're going to have to help me play it my way or you can just hike back to Jellystone Park.
Bobbie: Luke! There are techniques; there are meds that the doctors can use to help Laura remember.
Luke: I don't want her to remember, Barbara! That's the whole point!
Bobbie: Look, I know that you think you are trying to protect her, but you are not! Now think about your daughter. Your daughter needs you.
Luke: She needs her mother.
Bobbie: Her mother is unavailable.
Luke: But she will be again. She'll be okay. She'll get better. She just needs to be handled right. And that means no pressure, no more pressure -- none.
Bobbie: Luke, why are you doing this? Don't do this. Don't do this to yourself, to Lulu, to Lucky. Don’t.
Luke: Barbara, I know that cupcake has Leslie to take care of her, but I would feel so much better if I knew you'd be there, too.
Bobbie: Lulu loves you.
Luke: I know. But the truth is I -- I've taught her all my traditional skills. I mean, ice fishing -- that's not going to get a girl very far in this world. It has to be this way. Will you take care of my little girl?
Bobbie: Of course I will. You know I will. But let me call Dr. Westin, okay?
Luke: Thank you so much. Thank you. That is such a load off my mind. Thank you so much.
Felicia: I know Luke didn't kill Rick Webber.
Roy: How do you know?
Felicia: Well, the same way you do. He would've covered up the crime. He would've destroyed the evidence. He would've shown up for his own wedding. Even "The Best of Abba" stuck on replay wouldn't get him to confess.
Roy: So Mac has got to know that Luke's confession is bogus.
Felicia: Maybe he has a plan. Maybe that's what he wants to meet with you about.
Roy: I hope.
A.J.: Okay, pick a table, any table. If it's taken, I'll convince them to move.
Courtney: Well, there's plenty of empty tables.
A.J.: Well, as long as you're happy. I want you to be as happy as I am tonight. So what do you say?
Roy: Let's get out of here.
Alexis: So you've got no history on Alcazar and neither does Sonny?
Jax: Well, that's what he says.
Alexis: Do you think he's lying?
Jax: Wouldn't surprise me.
Jax: I -- I've just spent the last year urging you to get as far away from Sonny as possible, and now here I am trying to get you to help me with something he's a key player in.
Alexis: It's okay. I can discuss him. When I saw Zander in the hospital, I was made aware of who Sonny is and how he conducts his business. After what happened with my sister, it has become glaringly apparent. It's painful to have your eyes opened.
Jax: Yeah, well, it's better to deal with reality than lie to yourself.
Alexis: Have you had any contact with Skye at all?
Jax: You know, why is it that the two of us never listen to anyone when they try to tell us something?
Alexis: I saw in Sonny what I wanted to see, and anything that intruded on that illusion I either excused or I rationalized. And when it comes down to it, it just really isn't that complex or that mysterious at all. He is what you said he is. He's a career criminal. Ahem. Your turn. What drew you to Skye?
Jax: Well, it's crossed my mind, I mean, was Skye really so irresistible or was I making the same mistake I made with Chloe?
Alexis: Which was?
Jax: Trying to fill the void Brenda left.
Carly: Can we sit?
Carly: I know what you're thinking. I know that you're thinking the last time that things got this dangerous that I panicked and I tried to force you into witness protection. I know better now. You can trust me.
Sonny: Okay, this is not about trust. I trust you or I wouldn't have married you. And I'm not afraid you're going to betray me. I'm afraid you're going to get hurt or killed.
Carly: I'm a survivor, Sonny. I'm a survivor just like you. And you know what, it took me a long time to get it, but I do now. No matter how many enemies you have, no matter how many times they fire shots at you, you are going to be the one standing in the end. And when all that smoke clears, I am going to be standing right next to you, so crazy in love, and that is why I'm staying.
Sonny: Because you're crazy.
Carly: No, because nothing is going to happen to me. Hey. Do you think that if every time I got scared and I ran away, you think I'd be where I am? I'd be living in some trailer park right now. But I saw what I wanted and I went after it, just the same as you, and now I have everything that I have ever wanted in my life, and there is no way in hell, no way that I am going to die and give it up. And there's no way I'm going to go to some island to hide. I'm fighting, Sonny, because it's what I do best. And it's just one more thing that you and I have in common.
Sonny: Yeah? Any sign of activity? Security breach? Yeah? Okay, let me know if anything else happens. Bye.
Carly: What's up?
Sonny: Jason's taking care of something for me and he -- he hasn't checked in.
Carly: Well, can you contact him?
Sonny: Not safely.
Carly: So we wait?
Sonny: You got a better idea?
Carly: Yeah, fake this Alcazar guy out -- do exactly what he's not expecting.
Sonny: Wow, that's a pretty good idea, I guess. You want to go out on the town?
Jason: Now, listen to me, if you want to get away, this is your chance.
Jason: I work for Sonny Corinthos.
Jason: I'm Jason Morgan. No, no, wait, wait, wait. Please, please wait. Just -- just tell me your name. Tell me, why is Alcazar holding you? Do you know Sonny Corinthos?
Woman: You need to leave.
Alcazar: Mr. Morgan. Nice to see you again. Been looking forward to killing you.
Alcazar: You're good. My security has met its match here in Port Charles, but we're learning. Take him out. No mistakes.
Woman: I thought I heard something, so I came in --
Alcazar: No, you don't have to explain. I'll walk you to your room.
Alcazar: If you're planning on rescuing Morgan, I'm afraid we have a problem.
Zander: Your energy changes when you talk about Jason. It's like you sparkle or something. I mean, I realize my chances are slim to none, but did you ever sparkle like that for me or was I just a jerk all the time?
Elizabeth: Hmm -- yes. You were a jerk, but I liked you anyway.
Zander: Okay, so you liked me. How much?
Elizabeth: Well, it changed by the day, sometimes by the hour, depending on whether you were being wonderful or infuriating.
Zander: Were we ever involved?
Elizabeth: We spent a lot of time together.
Zander: Did we kiss?
Zander: Did we do anything more than kiss?
Zander: Was I that bad?
Elizabeth: It was probably a mistake for both of us.
A.J.: Thank you.
Courtney: So what looks good to you?
Courtney: You don't like my dress?
A.J.: What? No, I love it. I just thought maybe you were -- you were cold, yeah?
Courtney: Look, A.J., if you think my dress is too low-cut, just say so.
A.J.: Courtney, please. Don't turn a gesture of concern for you to something it's not, okay? It's all right.
Alexis: I know you would rather eat worms than psychoanalyze yourself.
Jax: You know, worms are actually quite tasty.
Alexis: If you happen to be a bird.
Jax: And if they're slightly fried with a little bit of coconut milk, they actually taste a little bit like mee krob.
Alexis: Really? Have you had them more than once?
Alexis: That's comforting.
Carly: A.J., Jax, and Alexis. All our favorite people in one room. What should we do?
Scott: Need you to check on this. Hey, Bobbie.
Scott: I'd kiss you, but I don't think that's going to fly right now.
Bobbie: Hey, Scott, are you railroading my brother for Rick’s murder?
Scott: Bobbie, Luke confessed, you know. My hands are tied.
Bobbie: Scott, you know as well as I do that if Luke confessed to Rick’s murder, it was to defend Laura.
Scott: Well, I pitched involuntary manslaughter, that Rick was attacking Laura, Luke was defending Laura, but, you know, your brother is stubborn. When he makes up his mind and he's, you know, like a jackass.
Roy: Hey, man.
Luke: Thanks for coming, bro.
Roy: It's like déja vu here.
Luke: All over again.
Roy: All over again. I called the hospital, tried to get an update on Laura's condition. It's -- you know, nothing's really changed.
Roy: So, tell me you have a plan.
Luke: What do you think?
Alexis: All you have to do is say his name, he just appears.
Jax: Unfortunately, the guest of honor is not here. You see, this is Sonny's way of showing Alcazar he's not intimidated.
Courtney: Hey, ignore Sonny. Don't let him ruin our dinner. A.J.
Courtney: You said that tonight was about us, so concentrate on me.
A.J.: You're right. To my beautiful wife. We weathered the storm. It's smooth sailing from here on in.
Sonny: Is it hard for you to see this place now that candy boy took it away?
Carly: Well, I miss it. You know, it was mine, my statement, my vision. But what really bothers me is the fact that he just gave it to his girlfriend because -- he acted like it was a toy he didn't want anymore.
Sonny: When Jax forced you out of here, he made a serious error.
Carly: I did give him a pretty good reason.
Sonny: Embezzlement is a bad idea, but don't kid yourself, because he pushed you out of here to get back at me. He'll do that any chance he gets.
A.J.: So anyway, the foreman --
Man: Excuse me, excuse me. I'm sorry to intrude on your meal. My name is Lyle, Lyle Jameson, and I'm a great admirer of your work.
A.J.: Yeah, I think you've confused my wife with someone else.
Lyle: No, you're a dancer, right?
Sonny: Jax can spin a decent story when he wants to. He almost snowed me the other day.
Sonny: I caught him coming back from Alcazar's yacht. He said he was on a fact-finding mission. He wanted us to work together.
Carly: Do you think he was sincere or was he just setting you up against Alcazar?
Sonny: Well, I wasn't going to waste my time trying to find out because I don't trust Jax, and I never will.
Carly: I don't blame you, okay, but maybe working together right now –
A.J.: I said back off!
Lyle: Take it easy! I just want to see if Daisy wants to pick up some extra money.
A.J.: Hey, hey, my wife's not a hooker.
Lyle: It's a bachelor party, nothing raunchy. Just a bunch of stockbrokers getting together, celebrating a friend's impending marriage.
Courtney: A.J., just sit down, please? Please?
A.J.: We're having dinner. You're not welcome here. Now get.
Lyle: I don't want any trouble.
Courtney: Let it go. No, thank you.
Lyle: I don't want any trouble. I just wanted to see if --
Sonny: Hey, excuse me. Hey. Is there a problem here?
Carly: Lucky for you I am a forgiving person, so forgiving, in fact, I'm about to save your life.
Alcazar: You asked me to take you away from your past. Have you changed your mind? You want to go back?
Brenda: Did you kill Jason?
Alcazar: He breached my security. It's self-defense.
Brenda: Jason is someone that I knew. I hid from him. He didn't even see me.
Alcazar: No, but Zander Smith saw you. And then he went to Morgan, and Morgan came right back here. Have you changed your mind? You're free to go. You always have been. Want me to take you to shore?
Alcazar: You trusted me when I saved your life after your mother tried to kill you. You trusted me to take you to the clinic in Switzerland, to stay with you when you had your tests done. You trusted me when you were diagnosed with the same disease. I promised to give you the best life I could for as long as you were capable of living it, to take care of you when you weren't able to take care of yourself, Brenda. I have done everything I promised. I've given you everything you wanted. Do you or do you not trust me now? Think about it before you answer. I don't want either of us to regret what happens next.
Luke: So it's going to happen fast. I'm going to have to leave in a hurry, you know, maybe as soon as tonight.
Luke: So in the meantime --
Roy: I'll get on it.
Roy: I'll start finessing the details. Just give me a second here. Yeah?
Roy: Nah. Anything else right now?
Luke: No, I just -- well, you know, I'm counting on you.
Roy: Hey, whatever it is, man, I swear I'll get it done.
Luke: I know you will.
Roy: Okay. I'll be talking to you. I look forward to hearing from you.
Luke: All right, and you'll hear from me soon.
Roy: Hey, Scott.
Scott: Your confession.
Luke: There's been a change in plans.
Lyle: I'm sorry, Mr. Corinthos. I didn't mean to be insulting. On the contrary, my friends and I, we think she's a great dancer.
Sonny: Then get yourself a booking agent. She doesn't dance anymore. As a matter of fact, she wants to forget that job.
A.J.: Why'd you do that? Why'd you accept his help?
Courtney: I didn't want any more trouble, A.J. I mean, it was bad enough without me picking a fight with my brother. Look, our food's here. Can we just get back to our evening?
Waiter: The herb-crusted salmon --
A.J.: Know what, I want the check, okay? Just bring the check.
Courtney: Can we just please get it to go?
A.J.: No, I don't -- I don't want it to go. You know what? Here. Just --
Sonny: Hey, you know what? Just put that on my tab.
A.J.: No, do not put it on his tab.
Courtney: We haven't accepted your money so far. What makes you think we're going to start now? Stop undermining my husband.
Sonny: Courtney, I'm just trying to help you, okay? If you need me at all --
A.J.: She doesn't need your help. She never did. Let's go.
Carly: After all the hard work that I did to make this club a success -- which was my idea, if you remember -- I deserve to be treated better than this. But I am willing to put this all in the past.
Alexis: I'm happy for you. No more sleepless nights for you.
Carly: Okay, Sonny told me that he made an offer to you to join forces with Alcazar, and maybe he wasn't ready to listen, but I think I can change his mind, but, you know what? You're going to have to do something for Sonny in return.
Jax: Well, I have a few words of advice for you, Carly. Your husband is an arrogant fool who thinks he's indestructible, so if I was you, I'd book myself on a nice, long cruise and avoid the spectacle of Sonny's demise.
Alcazar: Have you made up your mind?
Brenda: Luis, you know that I trust you. I just -- I need to know that you trust me back. I want you to just tell me why you killed Jason.
Alcazar: You are a sweet, sweet, gentle person, but you can't protect everyone. If you don't want Jacks and Corinthos to know you're alive and dealing with this illness, sacrifices must be made.
Brenda: Don't talk to me about sacrifices. You know that I'm the one who's made all the sacrifices. I turned my back on my whole entire life. Now, you know that Jason would've never been onboard this boat if we hadn't been here in the first place, so why are we here?
Alcazar: We won't be here long. Just until I can guarantee that jacks and Corinthos won't drag you down. That's what you want, isn't it?
Brenda: You know I don't want either one of them hurt.
Alcazar: I have no intention of laying a finger on either one of them.
[Knock on door]
Man: Mr. DiLucca’s arriving.
Brenda: Luis, not right now.
Alcazar: I have to go.
Zander: All right, well, I think I'm starting to remember how to play this game. All right, I win. So let's talk about this mutual mistake we made.
Elizabeth: Okay. Well, I got spooked one night, you showed up, you held me, got me through it, and one thing led to another.
Zander: So that was your fault or mine?
Zander: So we both regretted it?
Elizabeth: In the end.
Zander: But, what, not right away?
Elizabeth: We were friends. I should've left it at that. Instead, I let you think we were more.
Zander: So, basically, you led me on and I made a total fool of myself. That's great. I just -- the more I hear about myself, the more I think that I might've hit myself on the head just to put myself out of my misery. Have I ever loved a girl where she loved me back?
Zander: What happened, did I kill her?
Elizabeth: No. Emily's still alive.
Zander: But, what, I mean, did I hurt her somehow?
Elizabeth: Some people you made enemies of were trying to find you. You and Emily jumped on a bus that ended up crashing and she broke her back. Her parents sent her out of state for rehab, mostly to get her away from you.
Zander: How is she?
Elizabeth: She's doing well. But she called from the clinic and broke up with you over the phone. Is any of this ringing any bells?
Zander: It's like you're talking about somebody else.
Elizabeth: The breakup was bad, but when the two of you were together, you guys were totally connected. You were Emily’s first love. You tried to walk away from your past for her.
Zander: Isn't that what you want Jason to do? I mean, there's nothing wrong with my brain, just my memory. Isn't that how the plan works? True love makes outlaw reform?
Elizabeth: Look, there is no plan for me and -- Jason. Oh, my -- Zander, look for a first-aid kit. Try the bathrooms. What happened?
Jason: Nothing. I'm fine.
Scott: All right, Spencer, you got everything you wanted. Lucky's got immunity for obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting, and, considering what he did with Rick’s body, you know -- so there's no more sweetening of the pot here.
Luke: You want me to sign a confession, I get a last visit with my wife.
Scott: That's not going to happen because, you know, the mere mention of your name and she just goes off.
Luke: I ain't signing anything until I see my wife.
Scott: Well, I'm not going to put any pressure on Laura, and if you'd stop thinking about yourself, you'd realize that that is not what we should do is push her right now.
Luke: How many decades have you fantasized about getting her back, Baldwin? You've won. You've won. I'm going to Sing Sing, just like you always wanted. You got her all to yourself.
Scott: She doesn't even recognize me. And if you hadn't stuck your nose in this attic business --
Luke: If you hadn't forced her to forget, none of this would've happened! Why didn't you take care of her?
Scott: I am taking care of her. Now sign the confession and let her get some help!
Luke: I ain't signing anything until I see my wife one last time.
Elizabeth: Tell me what happened to your head.
Jason: Look, it doesn't matter. It's okay. Ow --
Elizabeth: It -- just be still, okay? That's what you say every time. That's what you said when I found you shot, lying in the snow. I'm starting to think you have an aversion to my nursing technique.
Zander: Right here. Here. Here's the first-aid kit.
Jason: No, no, no, no, listen to me -- you have to remember what happened on Alcazar's boat. Look, maybe if I describe everything I saw, it'll trigger something.
Zander: I'll try.
Jason: Okay, good, because we're running out of time.
Carly: You're calling my husband arrogant? Why don't you look at yourself, sitting there, oh, you, Mr. Smug and Mrs. Smug together. You know what, you deserve each other.
Alexis: I'm a big, big fan of slapstick, but this is tedious, so why don't you come get me when she's through.
Carly: Yeah, why don't you leave? You know what, I tried to do you a favor. I don't know why I bother because you are a fool. Sonny can protect himself. He's an expert. You're the one who needed him. He doesn't need you. Sorry.
Sonny: Okay, where to now, Mrs. Corinthos?
Carly: Champagne. Let's go to the hottest place in town.
Sonny: Okay, where do we top off the night?
Sonny: Home? Okay, so we'll go and toast to our future at home.
Sonny: All right.
Carly: And no one's going to stop us.
Alcazar: Morgan managed to escape. I'm ending this now.
Roy: What a great idea. Leave me a forwarding address. I'll make sure you get your share of the profits.
Alcazar: I look forward to receiving the checks.
Roy: Excellent. Smooth sailing, bon voyage and all that.
Alcazar: But before I leave, I have a new assignment for you. I want you to kill Sonny Corinthos.
Luke: Laura. Angel.
Laura: What do you want?
Luke: Listen to me very carefully. When they bring you the pill tonight, slip it under your tongue and don't swallow it, and then, when you're alone, spit it out.
Luke: Because I need you awake when I come back for you. I'm going to get you out of here.
Luke: We're going on the run.
Laura: No, leave me alone, leave me alone. Stay away from me. No.
Luke: Laura, it's me -- Luke. Remember?
Laura: No, no, I don't -- I don't remember!
Luke: Sweetheart --
Laura: Don't touch me! Don't touch me! No!
Luke: I'm not touching you. I would never hurt you. You know that.
Laura: I want -- I want my mom and Rick.
Luke: I love you.
Laura: I want --
Luke: I love you.
Laura: You're a bad man. You wanted to hurt me. You did. You wanted to hurt me. I want my mother!
Luke: No, I didn't --
Luke: Baby, it's okay, it's okay.
Laura: No, don't you touch me! Don't you touch me! No! I want my mother!
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Luke: Just you and me, Luke and Laura. We are meant to be.
Laura: We are?
Sonny: Tell me what you saw.
Jason: I found the woman.
Roy: I've been wondering about the real reasons you left me that money. I'm not going to kill Sonny Corinthos or anybody else.
