>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Felicia: The best way that I can protect my girls is to help you shut down Alcazar.
Sonny: Hello? Hello?
Lesley Lu: Is Mommy mad at me?
Lucky: Of course not. Mommy loves you.
Nikolas: She had to go far away to London.
Elizabeth: I want to take care of you.
Jason: Don't do this. I don't like pushing you away.
Roy: How about we rent a video?
Felicia: That's a good idea. We could watch it at my place.
Roy: Yeah. I'd be up for that movie where the navy seals battle the space aliens. What's that called?
Felicia: What about a romantic comedy? My girls and I love romantic comedy.
Roy: This is romantic. One of the aliens falls in love with one of the seals.
Felicia: You're good. You know that?
Roy: You're not so bad yourself.
Felicia: But you still lose.
Roy: Ah -- come on.
Georgie: Texas was okay, but I've sort of outgrown it.
Lucas: How can you outgrow an entire state?
Georgie: Oh, well, it's Grandma. She's cool and all, but, you know, she still treats me like a kid.
Felicia: Are you sure you're ready for this?
Roy: A romantic comedy?
Felicia: A night with my teenagers.
Roy: Why wouldn't I be?
Felicia: If you would rather save your energy for another time, I understand.
Roy: Energy is not a problem. I want to be a part of your life.
Felicia: You are.
Lucas: Hey, let go of them! Georgie, Maxie, come back! Wait!
Roy: Lucas? Lucas?
Lucas: They came out of nowhere.
Felicia: Who? Who? Where are the girls? Where are they?
Lucas: These two guys, they -- they knocked me down. I tried to fight --
Roy: Who were they?
Lucas: I don't know. They took Maxie and Georgie, and they threw them in a car and drove away.
Felicia: Did you get a look at the license plate?
Roy: Hey, hey, hey --
Felicia: What are you doing? Stop it!
Roy: You can't use the phone. You can't call the cops. You know you can't.
Lucas: Why not?
Roy: Felicia, come on, come on.
Roy: Just -- we can't -- we can't call the cops.
Brenda: Luis, really, I'm fine, and you don't need to -- don't treat me like that.
Alcazar: You were trying to call Corinthos. You'll only hate yourself if you connect with your past just before your illness begins to take control.
Brenda: You're not going to hurt him, are you?
Alcazar: You trust me, don't you?
Brenda: You just remember you promised me.
Alcazar: I promised to take care of you, and I will.
Brenda: Do not leave me in here. Luis, I am warning you, don't lock the door.
Alcazar: It'll only be a little while longer, Brenda!
Brenda: Luis, do not lock this door!
Carly: Hey, Sonny.
Sonny: You're awake now?
Carly: No! No! Sonny, no! No, no -- no, no, Sonny, come on and stay -- stay with me, Sonny. Stay with me. Stay with me. No. I love you.
Jason: You're not in this apartment because of me. You're here because Zander's in trouble and you wanted to keep him safe.
Elizabeth: Zander may be the reason that I'm staying in this apartment, but he's not why I'm in this room. He's not who I'm thinking about.
Luke: Oh, I should've done this years ago.
Scott: No, what you should've done years ago was put a gun to your own head. Shoot me. I don't give a damn.
Luke: What do you know? That makes two of us.
Alexis: Stop -- Luke! What are you doing?
Luke: Go away, Alexis.
Alexis: Put the gun down.
Luke: No. You go away. I don't want to hurt you.
Scott: Oh, come on. You do. You like to hurt women. Or is it just the ones that you love, Spencer?
Luke: You smug bastard.
Scott: I'm the reason why Laura's alive after what you dragged her through.
Luke: I could've saved her.
Scott: You don't exist in her mind anymore, Spencer!
Luke: That's because of you and Rick! You lied to her! You made her doubt herself!
Alexis: Tell me, what did they do?
Luke: It doesn't matter anymore. It's all just blood under the bridge.
Alexis: All right, Luke, listen to me. What's going to happen when Laura gets better -- and she will, okay -- six months from now, a year from now when the therapy works? She's going to ask. What am I going to say? That you executed Scott in cold blood? What -- how is that going to make her feel? She's going to blame herself.
Luke: None of this is Laura's fault. None of it.
Alexis: You think that's the way she's going to feel? She's going to feel that you were pushed over the edge because of her. Luke, come on, one more death -- what's that going to do for her recovery? Put the gun down.
Luke: Laura's the only reason that you're still breathing.
Alexis: Look, this is not over. I'm going to -- I'm going to take care of this. I'm researching an appeal, so we'll fight it. Just relax.
Scott: By the way, this case is closed.
Alexis: You sanctimonious hypocrite. I'll shoot you myself if you don't shut up.
Jason: It's late. Why don't you go to bed?
Elizabeth: Wait. What just happened here?
Jason: The same thing that always happens.
Elizabeth: Right -- one of us opens up and the other one pulls away. I guess it's my turn again.
Jason: I'm not trying to hurt you.
Elizabeth: Well, you are, just like I've hurt you. Now, we can keep doing this -- going back and forth, piling on the misunderstandings -- or we can start being honest about how we really feel. I'm game if you are.
Jason: Fine. What's really going on between you and Zander?
Sonny: You okay?
Carly: Yeah, I'm fine. You just -- you surprised me.
Sonny: What are you doing down here by yourself?
Carly: Oh. I just -- I woke up, and I had a million things running through my head. You know how it is.
Sonny: Your head's spinning, you can't get back to bed. Yeah.
Carly: You know, Michael’s missing his first week of school, and I need to get the workbooks. And then I forgot that he starts swim class next week. I didn't tell them he wasn't going to be there. You know, things like that.
Sonny: You should make a list.
Carly: Knowing me, I'd forget where I put them, right?
Sonny: Tape recorder.
Carly: I'd be tempted to tape conversations I'm not supposed to hear.
Sonny: You got a great smile.
Carly: Oh, well, thank you. I should drag you down here more often in the middle of the night.
Sonny: You didn't drag me. I woke up, didn't see you there, so I came down looking for you. Here you are, upset, maybe a little crying, trying like hell to cover it up, whatever it is. What's the matter? Tell me.
Carly: It's nothing. Really, it isn't. It's -- it's just all in my head.
Brenda: Please, let me think straight.
[Key turns in lock]
Brenda: Oh, Diana.
Diana: Mr. Alcazar said you were having an episode?
Brenda: Do I look hysterical to you?
Diana: Well, he called the doctor to increase your medication.
Brenda: No, I need a phone. Do you have a phone?
Diana: I don't have access.
Brenda: Look, I need to get off this boat, okay? I have to warn Sonny about this. Were you ever really my friend?
Elizabeth: Zander's my friend. That's all.
Jason: Come on, Elizabeth. He's more than that.
Elizabeth: Never slept with a friend before? Someone you liked but didn't love? I slept with Zander once -- the night the power went out in my studio and I freaked. He -- he got me through it and calmed me down. One thing led to another and --
Jason: I know. I was there.
Elizabeth: Wait. What?
Jason: I stopped by, and I saw the two of you together, so I left.
Elizabeth: Why didn't -- why didn't you do something?
Jason: What was I supposed to do? Pound on the door? Tell you to stop?
Elizabeth: I don't know, but -- yes. If I mattered to you, why couldn't you say it?
Jason: I did, and you chose Zander.
Elizabeth: I made a mistake. And I am so sorry you saw it. You shut down on me and Zander thought that night would start something more. He -- I guess I -- I sort of led him on. I didn't mean to. Zander needs someone, but it isn't me. You're who I want to be with, Jason. There. I said it. Do you believe me? Do you -- do you feel the same way, or are you going to pull away again to remind me of all the times --
Jason: This isn't about -- it's not about payback.
Elizabeth: Then what is it about?
Jason: Us. And how much you matter to me. I want to be with you, too.
Elizabeth: Finally, we agree on something.
Carly: I held you in my arms, and I felt you slipping away. You were dying, Sonny, and there was nothing that I could do to stop it. My heart was just pounding. I was so terrified. It felt so real.
Sonny: The fear is real.
Carly: But it was a dream. I know that. I just -- I get scared sometimes. I can't help it.
Sonny: Of course you do because you're smart and you know that -- you know, what can happen.
Carly: It won't.
Sonny: There are no guarantees. The danger is not going away.
Carly: Sonny, I can handle this.
Sonny: That -- it's what happens, you know? You wait, you watch. You don't know what's going to happen next. I don't want you having nightmares. I don't want you waking up terrified.
Carly: Well, I've got you when I do.
Sonny: You can fall asleep listening to the ocean. It's a beautiful thing. You know that --
Carly: You think that my heart isn't going to pound when I wake up a hundred miles away from you?
Sonny: It's so much better for me to protect you when you're on the island.
Carly: Okay, listen to me. Please, listen. Listen and understand this, okay? Look, my worst nightmare is being separated from you.
Brenda: Can't you understand that I can't let Sonny or anyone else die because of me. Look, I haven't been hiding from everyone because I'm afraid of what's going to happen to me. I've been hiding because I'm afraid of hurting them.
Diana: Because of your illness?
Brenda: Yes, of course. You know, I know what it's like to love someone whose mind is just going. You know, my whole life, I always thought my life would be so perfect if I could just be with my mother. And then she came to me, and I finally realized why everyone wanted me to believe that she was dead. She was -- she was so beautiful, though. You know, and she was smart and she was funny -- and insane. My mother killed herself and she tried to kill me, too. And now sometimes I wish I was dead.
Diana: Don't ever say that.
Brenda: When I found out that I do have my mother's illness, I swore to myself that I would never hurt anyone the way I let her hurt me, and I told Luis this. I shared all of this with him, and he swore he would always keep the people that I love safe. I trusted him, and he lied to me. Please help me.
Alcazar: I see you received my message.
Roy: Yeah. Here is my message for you. You give me Felicia’s children or I will break your neck.
Lucas: So we're just supposed to wait?
Felicia: Till Roy gets back.
Lucas: I mean, this doesn't make sense. I mean, I know that you and Roy know something, but come on. We're just waiting around.
Felicia: I should've kept Maxie and Georgie with me. I should've never left their side.
Lucas: There's got to be something that we can do.
Felicia: There's not -- how long has it been?
Lucas: Less than an hour.
Felicia: I got to get my girls back.
Alexis: Gentlemen, hope you don't mind if I have a word with my client. Thank you.
Luke: I'm not your client.
Alexis: There isn't a lawyer in this town that would come near you with a 10-foot pole after what you just pulled.
Luke: The world would be a far, far better place without Baldwin.
Alexis: You're already charged with second-degree murder. Now you've just added attempted murder to it, with special circumstances, because, you know --
Luke: He's not going to charge me.
Alexis: He's going to charge you with anything that he can charge you with. We're going to hold the line at assault. Emotional duress and all. Laura's breakdown. Scott --
Luke: Why don't you just save your breath, Natasha.
Alexis: I know that you don't think this defense is important --
Luke: He's going to let this slide.
Alexis: Why is that?
Luke: Call it a hunch.
Alexis: I appreciate what you're doing. I really do. I know that you're trying to protect Laura. But you need to believe me when I tell you that this is being very counterproductive at this point.
Luke: Feel free to quit.
Alexis: It's counterproductive because she can no longer be indicted, so there's really no need to cover for her. So why don't you just tell me what happened. You tell me the whole story about Scott, about Laura, about Rick Webber, and about the late Theresa Carter.
Alexis: I'm on to you, you know.
Luke: So, what's to be on to?
Alexis: So, why won't you talk to me?
Luke: I got nothing to say.
Alexis: You'd go to prison for the woman you love, yet you're sitting on a secret that will blow Scott Baldwin sky-high. So why would you cover for a man that you hate?
Luke: Well, speak of the devil.
Scott: It's your Lucky day, Spencer.
Luke: And how do you figure that?
Scott: Out of respect to Laura, I'm going to forget that you pulled that gun on me.
Luke: Where was your respect when you sent her off to the booby hatch, you jackass? Where was your respect when you kept a secret for 25 years?
Scott: All right, keep pushing me --
Alexis: You know what? You know what? Your magnanimous gesture is so appreciated, and we're going to formally thank you in the future.
Luke: You know, I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't be so damn polite to that man. He's a worm.
Alexis: You of all people should recognize sarcasm when you hear it. And that worm can make life exceedingly difficult for you.
Luke: He is already.
Alexis: Just tell me anything. Just give me a little. Help me a little.
Luke: Alexis, I would love to, but my mind's a complete blank.
Alexis: You know, as an officer of the court, it's my duty to report corruption. And I have reason to believe that the district attorney is covering up for a crime. Somebody killed Theresa Carter. So, who did it? Was it Scott? Was it Rick? Who was covering for who? Was someone blackmailing the other person? How did Laura get squeezed into this?
Luke: Beats the hell out of me.
Alexis: What did Laura see in the attic? What about the photo of the bloody shirt that Scott had in that picture? Is that going to trigger something in Laura --
Luke: You stay the hell away from my wife.
Alexis: I am merely suggesting a hypothetical --
Luke: You're not my attorney. Alexis, go home.
Alexis: I'm trying to help you --
Luke: Officer! We be done in here!
Alexis: Luke, we're not done.
Bobbie: Nobody forces Luke to do anything. My brother is blessed and cursed with a will of iron. And once he makes up his mind to do something, nobody can make him budge.
Lucky: Yeah, Dad's protecting Mom, and Scott played it for everything that it was worth.
Bobbie: Scott didn't coerce Luke.
Lucky: I guess people believe what they want to.
Nikolas: Like you want to believe Luke’s innocent?
Bobbie: He is.
Nikolas: Am I the only one in this family who thinks that my mother is a victim?
Lucky: I don't know, Nikolas. Which family are you referring to?
Gia: Hey. Look, we're not going to start that again, all right?
Lucky: I just call it like I see it.
Gia: You know, Laura spent years trying to build a connection between the two of you, and it worked. Can't you respect Laura's wishes and stop fighting?
Lucky: All I want is the truth.
Gia: And you will find it by working together. You know, it would break Laura's heart to see the two of you right now.
Nikolas: If her heart isn't already broken, Gia.
Bobbie: Look, go at it. Fight. Do whatever you have to do. But then go back to being brothers, for Lulu's sake as well as your own.
Gia: Are you two even listening?
Bobbie: Lucky, where are you going?
Lucky: I'm going to go see my dad.
Lucas: I'm sure Maxie and Georgie are going to be okay.
Felicia: Lucas, what if they're not? What are we going to do?
Lucas: Roy said to wait, not say anything to anybody, and you agreed, so we'll just wait.
Mac: Lucas. Felicia.
Mac: What happened? What's wrong?
Felicia: Oh, Mac.
Mac: You don't have to say. I think I know.
Maxie: Is Mom okay?
Roy: She wants to know where you are, kiddo.
Maxie: You mean she's freaking.
Roy: She'll be fine as soon as you're home.
Maxie: Tell her we're okay.
Roy: So no one's hurt you?
Maxie: They gave us hamburgers and sodas. Georgie's kind of scared, though. Can you come get us, Roy?
Roy: I'm working on it, Maxie. I shouldn't be too long. You just hang in there, okay?
Roy: I'll talk to you soon.
Alcazar: She trusts you.
Roy: Yeah, she does.
Alcazar: I'm sure you're aware of the consequences if you fail to cooperate. Are you an honorable man? Do you live up to your promises, or do you turn your back on your obligations?
Roy: There is no honor in what you're asking me to do.
Alcazar: I'm not asking you. I'm telling you. Understand?
Roy: I understand completely.
Alcazar: Good. Then you'll eliminate Corinthos.
Carly: Oh, yum.
Sonny: No, stay right there. Stay right there. It's all coming to you.
Carly: Ooh. I could get used to this.
Sonny: We got pancakes, right --
Sonny: With syrup and butter, made from scratch. Not the, you know, from-freezer-to-microwave kind.
Carly: Well, I'm sure they'll still be delicious.
Sonny: And -- wait till you see this thing. This is Michael’s masterpiece that he stuck on the fridge. You ready?
Carly: Oh. Look at that. He is so artistic, isn't he? I mean, look at that. I know that, okay, I might be a little biased, but look at that. He's really good. He's good, isn't he?
Sonny: Is that what he wants? I mean, like --
Sonny: A house with trees and swings, a dog? Is that what he thinks about?
Carly: No, he wants Mommy, Daddy and Leticia, and everything else is negotiable.
Sonny: What about you?
Sonny: What was your fantasy when you were a kid?
Carly: Lots and lots of shoes and a housekeeper and a really handsome husband who could cook.
Sonny: Ah. I'm serious.
Carly: So am I.
Sonny: So if you could snap your fingers, right, and have any kind of lifestyle you want, what would it be?
Carly: This one.
Sonny: So you trust me enough to tell me your nightmares, but you don't trust me enough to tell me your dreams?
Doctor: Ms. Barrett. I understand you're having a difficult night.
Brenda: I'm fine.
Doctor: But anxious? I'll give you something to help you rest.
Brenda: I'm not hallucinating. I feel great, actually. I'm thinking really very clearly. Though, Doctor, I could use your help with something. It's to prevent a murder.
Jason: You know, there are things that I will never be able to give you. I can't -- I can't promise that I'll never be called away in the middle of the night. I can't promise I'll never have to leave you to go to a meeting in places I can't discuss, with people I can't talk about.
Elizabeth: It's your job.
Jason: I know. It's not a job with security or structure. I don't punch a clock.
Elizabeth: I know all of this.
Jason: And I can't promise you that you'll never get hurt -- by this life that I lead or by me.
Elizabeth: No one can make promises like that, Jason. It wouldn't matter who you were -- a shopkeeper, a lawyer, an accountant --
Jason: That would be a stretch.
Elizabeth: Anyone can break a heart. No one is completely safe when you care about another person.
Jason: I would never hurt you on purpose.
Elizabeth: That's important to me.
Jason: But not enough.
Elizabeth: Maybe it is, if you care enough to try.
Jason: I can respect you and listen to you and be honest with you. Yeah, I can try. Could you go upstairs now before Zander barges in at the exact wrong moment and I flip out and I beat him up and we start all over?
Elizabeth: Okay. Okay, you convinced me. Good night.
Jason: Good night.
Mac: Lucas couldn't get out of here fast enough.
Felicia: I should've offered to drive him home.
Mac: You need five minutes to yourself. Maxie’s putting you to the test again, isn't she? And probably Georgie, too. Felicia, don't take it personal. They're teenagers. Criticism, rebellion, mood swings -- it all comes with the territory. You are an excellent mother.
Felicia: No, I'm not. I've made some huge mistakes, Mac.
Mac: Will you give yourself a pat on the back, huh? You deserve it. And do me a favor.
Felicia: What's that?
Mac: Next time you're feeling overwhelmed like this, call me. I'm always glad to help.
Felicia: I will.
Brenda: Doctor, I realize that I'm sick.
Doctor: Mr. Alcazar is understandably concerned.
Brenda: Yes. Do you realize what's happening here? The door is locked, and it's not to protect me. It's to lock me in.
Doctor: You need rest.
Brenda: Yes. I need rest. You know, I just need to make one phone call. Do you have a cell phone in here? Because I just need to make one --
Doctor: Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah. It's not uncommon for early-stage patients to experience irrational anxieties. But if you remain calm and do not agitate yourself, you should be able to stay in remission for a good, long time.
Carly: Okay, and rolling hills and great, big house and a veranda. A butler.
Sonny: You want to wear hoop skirts, those things like they wore in "Gone With the Wind"?
Carly: Hmm -- no. In "Gone With the Wind," everything burned down. And on our estate, things are going to be perfect. There's not going to be anything bad that ever happens. There's not going to be any bugs, and there's not going to be any snakes or insects or like that.
Sonny: What about dogs for Michael?
Carly: Um -- all right, he can have one that doesn't drool and doesn't shed.
Sonny: Any more kids?
Carly: Yeah, and they're all going to have your dimples.
Sonny: Oh, really?
Sonny: And the girls are going to look like you?
Carly: And they're going to have my sense of humor.
Sonny: What -- what, are you saying I don't have a sense of humor?
Carly: Well, you know, you do with me, but with everyone else it's like -- I don't know -- you just walk around with this scowl on your face like --
Sonny: I don't -- I don't look like that.
Carly: Yeah, you do. You look just like it.
Sonny: All right, let's get back to the mansion and the butler.
Carly: All right. Well, we're going to have a really fabulous, big ballroom so we can have parties and stuff --
Sonny: Pool hall and casino --
Carly: Okay, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. My fantasy. Mine, remember?
Sonny: I forgot.
Carly: Ah, don't do that. It's mine.
Sonny: Hey. Next time you have a nightmare and you even think of getting out of bed, you wake me up, put your arms around me, and I won't let you be afraid. Okay?
Alcazar: Doctor said you had calmed down.
Brenda: He thinks I'm having an episode.
Alcazar: You are.
Brenda: I'm not imagining things.
Alcazar: You're sick, Brenda. You know that.
Brenda: You know, if you really loved me, you would not be doing this to me.
Alcazar: I do love you, Brenda, more than anything in the whole world. My choices may be hard for you to understand right now --
Brenda: You brought me to a place I never wanted to come back to again, and you're doing things behind my back that you will not explain. I am not imagining that.
Alcazar: I'm not going to fight with you, Brenda, not when you're like this.
Brenda: When I'm like what? Like what? You know, someday I'm going to be ugly and I won't even know my own name, and then I'll die.
Alcazar: And in the time between now and then, I will adore you and we will be each other's whole world.
Felicia: Where are the girls? Have you seen them?
Roy: I -- I spoke to Maxie on the phone.
Felicia: You did?
Felicia: Is she all right?
Roy: She's --
Felicia: Are they safe? Are they not hurt?
Roy: No, they're fine. They're fine, and I'm going to --
Felicia: Oh, God.
Roy: Get them back in a few days.
Felicia: In a few days?
Felicia: What do you mean, a few days?
Roy: Because it's going to take that long to arrange --
Felicia: No! I want to see them! I want to see them right now!
Roy: Felicia, I'll move as fast as I can --
Felicia: Well, I can move faster!
Roy: No -- what are you doing?
Felicia: I'm calling Mac.
Roy: You can't call Mac!
Felicia: I have to call Mac! I'm calling the police! I see the girls --
Roy: You calm --
Felicia: Or I'm calling the police!
Roy: You calm down. You need to calm down right now. We will get them back.
Roy: We will get them back, I promise.
Gia: Don't worry. Lucky will come around.
Nikolas: Gia, let it go. What Bobbie said about Luke, Lucky's the exact same way -- he's stubborn as hell, always sure he's right and the rest of the world is wrong, okay? Let it go.
Gia: You're brothers, okay? You've been to the wall for Lucky. He will remember that.
Nikolas: Really? When?
Bobbie: Excuse me. Hey. What's up?
Scott: Well, I guess you already know Laura's been transferred to a facility in London.
Bobbie: Oh. Luke must be a wreck.
Scott: Yeah, to say the least.
Lucky: Dad. All right. I called the institute that Mom was sent to. I gave them my number. I told them to give me a call as soon as she arrives.
Luke: You got to make them understand that they can't pressure her. They can't push her at all, or she will pull away.
Lucky: The director understands. He says he's dealt with cases like hers before.
Luke: There's nobody like your mother. You have to make him understand there's nobody like her.
Lucky: Dad, Dad, Dad, I checked into this place. There's no better place for Mom, okay? She's going to be all right.
Luke: Did this director have any other pearls of wisdom?
Lucky: We can't see Mom for six months.
Luke: That might be a good thing.
Lucky: I covered with Lulu.
Luke: What did you tell her?
Lucky: The truth, basically. Mom's sick. She's at a special place that'll take care of her. She's going to make a recovery. It's going to be slow, and she only gets to see doctors right now.
Luke: Well, Bobbie’s going to help with Lulu, so she'll be okay. She's got you and Nikolas.
Lucky: She needs you, Dad.
Luke: I know. But that isn't going to happen. It's just not in the cards right now.
Lucky: Forget the cards, Dad. I know what you're up to. I'm not going to let you get away with this.
Luke: You don't have a whole lot to say about it, cowboy.
Lucky: Yeah, maybe not, but I am going to fight you every step of the way on it.
Luke: That is a very bad idea.
Lucky: I think going to jail is a worse one.
Luke: I agree.
Lucky: What is it that you're up to?
Luke: Lucky -- your shifty old daddy's got no intention of going to prison.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Courtney: You just happened to wander in here off the streets?
Coleman: I came to see you.
Edward: How is poor, little Daisy?
Roy: Maxie and Georgie are going to be all right.
Brenda: Why have you stopped listening to me?
Alcazar: I'm only doing what you asked.
Jax: What happens from here on is entirely up to you.
