>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Jason: Your stalker's right across the street.

Courtney: Oh, my God.

Skye: You cannot expect to push me away now.

Jax: It's better this way. Brenda, I need you more than ever.

Alexis: I no longer represent Mr. Corinthos.

Scott: She slept with Sonny Corinthos.

Benny: So much for Ms. Davis' campaign.

Jax: I know what I'm about to ask you might seem unfair. It might even make you feel a little uncomfortable.

Brenda: No, no, no. You know I'd do anything for you.

Jax: Good, because I'm depending on it. You know I love Skye, but I won't have her chained to my wheelchair.

Brenda: You know how she feels about that.

Jax: Yeah, well, she -- you know, she insists on loving me through this.

Brenda: Then let her.

Jax: No, you know, worse than paralysis is watching Skye throw away her life. I have to let her go.

Brenda: You need to tell her all of this.

Jax: I did tell her. She -- you know, she insists that it's her duty to stay with me.

Brenda: Well, maybe she means it when she says she loves you. You know, having you in a wheelchair is a million times better than not having you at all.

Jax: Ok, you know what? Don't try to talk me out of this, ok?

Brenda: Ok --

Jax: Just --

Brenda: I'm sorry. Just tell me what you need from me.

Jax: I have to hurt Skye. I have to play on her vulnerability and her insecurities, and no one knows them better than I do.

Brenda: What are you talking about?

Jax: Look, if Skye thinks that I've turned to another woman, then she'll leave me. So I want to tell her I'm still in love with you. But in order for that to work, you have to play along, pretend that you love me back. Can you do that for me?

Alan: You taking a break?

Skye: A little one.

Alan: Would you like to talk to your father for five minutes?

Skye: Oh, that would be nice.

Alan: You look tired.

Skye: I'm fine.

Alan: No, you're not. I know where you are. I know how helpless you feel when the person you love is just fighting the battle of their life.

Skye: Monica's cancer.

Alan: Yeah. What gets lost in the shuffle is the toll that it takes on the spouse. Skye, you're in a special kind of hell, and I just want you to know that you can lean on me.

Skye: Thank you. I appreciate your support more than you know. But I don't have that luxury right now, you know? I have to be strong. Jax needs me. Except there's one small problem.

Alan: He doesn't want you there. He's doing everything he can to drive you away, right?

Skye: You know, Dad, I'm scared to death that it just might work.

Scott: There it is, ladies and gentlemen. Black and white. Signed by your wife, Corinthos. Witnessed by her. What a sight for her -- you and my esteemed opponent here rolling around together, naked.

Sonny: I'm so sorry for what this man must have put you through to force you to sign that piece of paper, and then to drag you all the way out here. It's shameful. Unforgivable.

Scott: Well, you know, if you're going to get in bed with your lawyer, you got to expect a little fallout. You're awfully quiet. I guess we all know your position on organized crime now. And it kind of proves that you will lie to the public about your connection to Corinthos, which makes us wonder about your general honesty.

Carly: You know what, Scott? You're right. Someone here is lying, but it isn't Alexis. It's you.

Carly: Do you people want to know what really went on, or do you want to hear more of this man's bald-faced lies? Because the affidavit that he is so proudly waving around is just that -- another one of his lies. He brought it to me already prepared, and he forced me to sign it.

Man: Are you saying --

woman: How, Mrs. Corinthos?

Carly: By threatening to use his power as D.A. to take away my child.

[Phone rings]

Carly: Mr. Baldwin threatened me --

Nikolas: Hello?

Carly: And he blackmailed me into telling a terrible lie about my husband. Look, Sonny and Alexis, they never slept together. And the only romantic attraction or attachment that they have to each other exists only in D.A. Baldwin's dirty little mind.

Scott: Well, now, now, now, you admitted that they slept together at least once. He moved her across the hall so he could scamper over.

Carly: You know, Sonny and I have been married for most of the time that Alexis lived across the hall, and I think I know damn well where my husband slept and where he didn't. No offense -- Ms. Davis may be an excellent attorney, but no one can accuse her of being a seductress.

Man: Why did D.A. Baldwin blackmail you?

Carly: To discredit Alexis and win the election. Look, he used the only thing more important to me than my husband's good name -- my son. He threatened to take away my 6-year-old child and put him into protective custody unless I lied. It is so obvious that Scott Baldwin has no scruples, no morals, and this miserable excuse for a human being is a monster who --

Bobbie: And the last person on earth who ought to be elected to the position of district attorney.

Jason: Courtney?

Courtney: Anything?

Jason: No sign.

Courtney: So, what do we do now?

Jason: Ok, look, this apartment isn't safe. I need to get you out of here.

Courtney: I won't run.

Jason: I understand your instinct, and it's a good one. You have every right to want to fight this guy, but you have to be smart about it. Ok, you asked for my help. Now I'm asking you to trust me. We need to get out of here.

Courtney: All right. You're the expert.

Jason: Ok.

Courtney: What about my things?

Jason: Well, forget it. We'll grab them later. Let's go.

Courtney: Ok.

Skye: Let's be honest -- my track record when it comes to love basically -- well, let's just say it's not been so good. I mean, it took me forever to realize I had the real thing when I finally had it. My feelings for Jax are as real as it gets. I just don't want to give up because I'm afraid to lose the fight.

Alan: Then don't.

Skye: He doesn't want me to love him. He doesn't want our marriage if it isn't perfect.

Alan: He's terrified. He's never been helpless in his life. Nobody's ever said no to him. He's never failed. He needs you, Skye. He needs your strength and experience. He needs you to show him that love isn't necessarily about perfection. Sometimes it is simply to endure.

Brenda: You're asking me to help you hurt yourself.

Jax: No, no, I'm asking you to help me save the woman I love. Skye didn't sign up for this.

Brenda: Yeah, well, it doesn't matter. Things happen in life. I mean, if you really love someone, you stand by them --

Jax: Ok, you know what? Don't you -- don't you understand? I hate being paralyzed. I've got so much anger inside me, I don't know what to do with it all the time, and I don't see it changing anytime soon. And I certainly don't want to subject Skye to that kind of rage. She's an alcoholic, Brenda. Her recovery means everything to her. I don't want to put her at risk.

Brenda: Well, I can't speak for Skye, but I can tell you that if you married me one minute, I trusted you, and then you pushed me away for another woman, it would certainly send me running for a bottle.

Jax: You don't know Skye. If Skye thinks that -- that I've turned to another woman, she'll feel angry, and anger means strength for Skye. You know, trust me on this. You don't know her as well as I do. Come on, Brenda, you know that -- you know that I think things through thoroughly. I've thought of every possible scenario, and this is the best outcome for everyone involved. This is only going to work if you help me with this, if you play along.

Skye: Sorry to interrupt, but I need a little time with my husband.

Brenda: I don't want you to worry, so I'll take care of this, ok?

Skye: Excuse me?

Brenda: Um -- we all need to talk about something. I know that Jax tried to tell you that the word "husband" no longer applies to him, and that is true. He is filing for divorce, Skye.

Skye: I have no intention of divorcing Jax.

Brenda: Well, then Jax and I will fly to the Dominican republic. Is that what you want?

Jax: Yes, as soon as I'm in a wheelchair and able to travel, I'll arrange it.

Brenda: I'm really sorry. I know this must be really hard for you to deal with, but I love Jax and I never should have left in the first place. I tried to leave and do the right thing. It only made things worse. So from now on, I'm going to follow my heart. And I know from personal experience how hard it is to lose Jax, but we are back together now. You wouldn't want to be with him, anyway, knowing that he really wants to be with me.

Skye: You -- you get out right now before I have you thrown out, ok?

Brenda: Would you like a minute alone with her?

Jax: Yeah, I think so.

Brenda: Ok. I'll be back.

Skye: Do you honestly expect me to buy one word of that?

[Rosie barks]

Courtney: Ok -- Rosie, Rosie, it's ok. This is going to make everything better. Yeah, it's ok. So you really think this is necessary?

Jason: Well, if you insist on staying here, you need to know that the stalker can't get in again.

Man: All done. You understand how everything works?

Jason: Yeah, yeah, thanks a lot for this.

Man: Thank you, Mr. Morgan. My pleasure.

Jason: All right.

Jason: Leo is the best locksmith in town, ok? His stuff is as foolproof as you can get without electronic security. So the stalker is going to have to find some other way to get to you.

Courtney: Is that supposed to be reassuring?

Jason: Well, along with your new security system, you're going to have a guard 24 hours a day -- me, when possible, but sometimes it might be one of the other guys. You won't go anywhere without one of us, ok? Now, either the stalker is going to become more determined or discouraged. He likes games. He might try to find another way to play these games, another way to approach you.

Courtney: So when he shows his face, you'll be there to stop him.

Jason: That's the idea.

Courtney: I'll do whatever you say, just as long as this is all over with before A.J. gets back.

Scott: Bobbie, this doesn't concern you. Ladies and gentlemen of the press --

Bobbie: Yes, yes, Scott, actually, it does concern me because I have some things that I want to say -- on the record. Carly is right. Scott Baldwin is a liar who fabricated this whole thing just to slander Alexis. You see, I know this because my daughter and I are very close. She confides in me, and she never once mentioned any kind of an attraction between Sonny and Alexis. And believe me, if Carly had detected anything, she would have gone through the roof.

Scott: Bobbie, maybe she didn't want to admit --

Bobbie: Not without going into the details of my daughter's marriage, suffice it to say that I am very well aware of every fight that Sonny and Carly have ever had. She has shared the details of every little misunderstanding that she ever felt she suffered at my son-in-law's hands with me. I know his flaws inside out, and Carly has never once accused Sonny of being unfaithful. So this is a blatant lie. And what makes it unforgivable, Scott, is that you have abused your power as acting D.A. to blackmail a mother and to threaten her child, and I think that's disgusting, not to mention illegal, and I think somebody ought to come along and arrest you.

Man: Wow.

Sonny: Consider yourself on notice, Scotty. If you approach me or my wife again, I'm going to have to sue you for everything you got. Ms. Davis, if you continue to make false accusations about me and my business, I'll have to sue you, as well. I have never been convicted for racketeering. I categorically deny any involvement in organized crime. Don't ever call me a mobster again. As a matter of fact, leave me and my wife out of this election altogether. Come on.

Man: Mr. Corinthos --

woman: Any comments, Ms. Davis?

Edward: Alexis seems to have dodged quite a big bullet, Ned. But, oh, my, it does explain everything.

Nikolas: Dr. Quartermaine.

Alan: Thank you for coming so quickly.

Lucky: Yeah.

Nikolas: Your office said something happened to our mother. Is that true?

Alan: As it stands now, you are both Laura's guardians, and you're going to have to make some crucial decisions about her future.

Lucky: What happened?

Alan: Unfortunately, she's taken a turn for the worse.

Nikolas: What do you mean, a turn for the worse?

Alan: Somebody broke into the clinic and tried to abduct her, and she fought back. She actually attacked him. And, subsequently, she is now in a psychotic state.

Lucky: It was my father.

Alcazar: Long day?

Brenda: What are you doing?

Alcazar: I've been discharged.

Brenda: Thought you were arrested.

Alcazar: The police were on me for my own protection after what happened with Corinthos.

Brenda: You'll be going to jail eventually.

Alcazar: You look miserable, Brenda. Wouldn't you rather be in Paris, Madrid?

Brenda: Is that where you think you're going?

Alcazar: Not unless you agree to come with me.

Brenda: I hate you.

Alcazar: You know what they say about hate -- it's the flip side of love. Clearly you've been wearing yourself out, Brenda. Maybe you just need some fresh air.

Brenda: Good-bye.

Alcazar: At least let me take you out to lunch. Must be someplace in this town that makes a decent chocolate soufflé.

Brenda: I'm not going anywhere with you.

Taggert: That's a wise decision since Mr. Alcazar's going to prison. Thanks to Ms. Barrett's testimony, you're going away for a real long time.

Scott: Ladies and gentlemen, everything in this affidavit is true.

Woman: Well, is there any other proof of a sexual encounter between Sonny Corinthos and Alexis Davis?

Scott: Who are you going to believe -- me, an upstanding citizen sworn to protect the law, or Corinthos and his lying wife?

Man: Ms. Davis, do you stand behind your assertion that Mr. Corinthos is a mobster?

Alexis: Mr. Corinthos has been arrested numerous times in connection with RICO violations. Although none of those cases have gone to trial, he is still considered the subject of an ongoing investigation. But in deference to Mr. Corinthos' direct request, I will here on out refer to him as allegedly being involved in organized crime. Thank you all for coming. I have no further comment at this time.

Ned: Nice recovery.

Alexis: I'm not taking credit for anything that's happened here today. The only reason I'm standing here is because Carly, of all people, lied on my behalf.

Edward: Looks like you shot yourself in the foot, Baldwin.

Scott: Oh, come on, Edward. You know she's lying through her teeth.

Edward: Hmm, most likely. But she is a very convincing liar and she's a distraught mother. And from what I could see, the press ate up her story like ice cream. So that means that your little affidavit there is of no value.

Scott: Well, thank you for pointing it out to me.

Edward: But, you know, the document might have -- might have some potential. Maybe I could do something with it. Could I have a copy, please?

Scott: Sure. Sure, sure. Here. Take this copy.

Edward: Oh.

Scott: I've got others. Do me a favor, though. See if you can make a little bit of trouble for Carly, you know what I mean? Thank you for your support, Mr. Quartermaine.

Bobbie: Is that what you really want, Scott -- to make trouble for Carly? Because you should know going in, that's going to get you a lot of trouble from me.

Jason: The apartment's been swept from top to bottom. Ok? There's no more bugs, no more surveillance gear. Your new locks are in place. Other than moving you in with me, you're as safe as I can make you.

Courtney: I know I should be thanking you, but I just can't stop thinking about what's going to happen when A.J. gets back. I'm keeping secrets from him again.

Jason: Courtney, you are protecting him.

Courtney: A.J. won't understand. All he'll see is that I went to you for help instead of him. God, Jason, I want to handle this the right way, but what if it's already too late?

Skye: I don't buy a word Brenda just said.

Jax: It's true. I told you I wanted out.

Skye: Sorry. Too convenient. You find out you're paralyzed, you try to divorce me for my own good, and when that doesn't work, you're suddenly swept away by your renewed love for Brenda?

Jax: It's not sudden, Skye. It's not renewed. I've always loved Brenda. You know that. You knew that going in. You took a chance, and it didn't pan out.

Skye: You let go of Brenda when you married me.

Jax: I thought Brenda was gone forever. Ok, all it took was seeing her again. Made me realize how much I still loved her. She's a part of me, and she's the only woman I can turn to now.

Skye: You don't mean that. You're lying.

Jax: I'm sorry, Skye. It's not a lie. The lie would be to stay with you out of obligation when the truth is I'm in love with someone else. I mean, is that what you want? You want me to stay with you out of obligation? That would be wrong. That's not fair. You deserve better, Skye. You're a good person.

Skye: "Good person."

Jax: Hey -- you and I had some good times. Let that be enough. Let me be with the woman I love.

Skye: I won't believe you. I won't believe that our marriage could ever be a lie or that you don't love me. But if you do intend to divorce me, then you better gear up for the longest, ugliest fight in family court history because there is no way I am letting you walk away. You are the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I am not just going to hand you over to Brenda.

Alan: There is no proof that the man who broke in to see Laura was Luke, but he does fit the description.

Lucky: No, no, no. You see, you don't have to tell me because I know. My dad was in there helping my mom.

Alan: Unfortunately, it had the opposite effect.

Nikolas: What decision do we need to make?

Alan: Your mother's catatonic. And the doctors could use intensive drug therapy or they can wait and just see if she's going to come out of it, but they can't predict how long that might take.

Lucky: No. No drugs.

Nikolas: Could you wait a second? You want to wait? Do you want to wait?

Lucky: Yes, I do. Mom might be out of it right now, but for all we know she could be resting, building up reserves so she can come home. You know how strong she is.

Nikolas: Ok. Dr. Quartermaine, I have to agree with my brother.

Alan: All right, then. I'll need one of you to speak to her doctors directly.

Nikolas: Ok, I can do that.

Taggert: You understand these rights as I've read them to you?

Alcazar: Yes, of course.

Taggert: Good. Let's have a little talk here, Mr. Alcazar. Let's see. Charge of murder for the death of Kristina Cassadine, attempted murder for the shooting of Jasper Jacks, and we haven't even got to the crimes committed against Ms. Barrett here. You're going away for a very long time.

Alcazar: How long you been on the police force, Lt. Taggert?

Taggert: Excuse me?

Alcazar: Seems to me you have a lot to learn about the American judicial system. I'm sorry. Looks as though I won't be available for lunch after all, but I'll make it up to you as soon as I'm released.

Brenda: It's ok. If they ever let you out, leave Port Charles and forget you ever met me.

Alcazar: That's not going to happen. I love you, Brenda. We belong together. I'll see you soon.

Taggert: Let's go.

[Sonny hums]

Carly: Did you want to have a discussion? Or would you just like to yell at me? I took the precaution of calling ahead, so Leticia and Michael are at the park. You can feel free to just let it rip.

Sonny: I assume most of what you said was true. Baldwin wanted dirt on Alexis, so he wanted you to say that I slept with her, so he blackmailed you by threatening to take away Michael.

Carly: Yeah, that's exactly what happened.

Sonny: When?

Carly: The night that you shot Alcazar, which, by the way, is the night that I walked into the PCPD and found out that Brenda was still alive and that you were lying to me.

Sonny: Oh. So you did this for payback because you were angry about Brenda, so you didn't tell me you signed an affidavit telling the whole world that I slept with Alexis?

Carly: No, I didn't tell you because --

Sonny: Wow.

Carly: There were things going on, other things. Brenda was back. You had shot Alcazar. I'm sorry, those things took priority.

Sonny: And since then?

Carly: Look, Sonny, I thought I took care of it, ok? I went to Scott. I made him give me back the affidavit, and I tore it up.

Sonny: Did it occur to you that he could have another copy?

Carly: Oh, give me a break, ok?

Sonny: No.

Carly: No, give me a break! What do you think I am, stupid? I asked him for copies. I thought he gave them to me, ok? And I -- I pointed out to him that he had no proof that you and Alexis slept together. I also told him that he had no leverage since you were back and you were now going to protect me and Michael.

Sonny: Uh-huh.

Carly: Look, Sonny, my only mistake here was believing that Scott would back off, ok? I didn't betray you. I didn't lie to you. And if you can't see that, then I don't know --

Sonny: No, I see it! I see it! I wish you'd have told me!

Carly: Ok, we're even because there's things I wish you would tell me, too -- starting with why you showed up today. It was a political debate between Alexis and Scott. What the hell do you care? Well, you are trying to save the election for Alexis, aren't you? You still want her to win after everything she's done to you.

Sonny: There's no point discussing Alexis because we always end up in a fight.

Carly: Well, I won't fight with you if you make me understand what you think you owe that woman. Sonny, she turned on you. She attacked you in public. She blamed her sister's death on you, and you had nothing to do with it.

Sonny: Kristina died in my warehouse.

Carly: No, you didn't plant the bomb, Sonny. You didn't even ask Kristina to meet you there. She went on her own. Alexis knew that, and it didn't matter. She went ahead and she used it against you anyway. And worse than that, she used things that you told her in confidence when you were so-called friends, and she used it to attack you. Sonny, you didn't cause your mother's death, ok, you didn't cause Brenda's crash, and you certainly didn't cause me to miscarry and lose our baby. Ok, those were all things Alexis said so she could be vicious.

Sonny: Her sister just died. She was just lashing out.

Carly: Ok, so why did you have to stand there and take it? Please explain that to me. And please, while you're at it, tell me why you feel you need to defend her.

Sonny: Why do we always have to keep talking about this? I slept with Alexis, yeah. It happened. I was still in love with you. You know, I -- I hurt Alexis. I feel bad about it. Am I allowed to feel bad?

Carly: Ok, so that's what this is about. You're blaming yourself because -- because you hurt Alexis? Sonny, you have no idea all the ways she's hurt you.

Alexis: Scott's allegations were more damaging to his campaign than mine. I feel confident that I can still win.

Edward: But this -- this document raises some very disturbing questions.

Alexis: You called it, Edward. You said Scott would fight dirty regarding the truth. You were right.

Scott: Bobbie, this is how elections are won. I mean, it may not be pretty, but it has -- it has nothing to do with how I feel about you. Listen to me.

Bobbie: Oh, look, you know, that's really fascinating, Scott, because this election has everything to do with how I feel about you. Now, I always knew that you would cut a few corners and take a little liberty with the truth, which is a little annoying at times, but it's not fundamentally repulsive. But what I see now is you'll do anything to get what you want. You'll railroad Luke, blackmail Carly. It's always my family.

Scott: I've gone out of my way to protect your family. Lucky -- he breaks into my office. He punches me in the eye. I had to go around campaigning with a black eye. But do I press charges? Do I do anything? No. Out of respect for you, Bobbie. Come on, come on. That's got to tell you something.

Bobbie: Oh, yeah, yeah. What that tells me is that not filing charges worked out better for you and that you're fine about lying to me on it until it suited your purposes to tell the truth. No, Scott, you're a liar, and you're a manipulator, and you're an opportunist. But hear me on this -- you made a big mistake when you decided to throw down against the Spencer's because we always fight back. And we're going to make you sorry that you ever decided to mess with us.

Jason: Why do you think it's too late to fix things with A.J.?

Courtney: Well, A.J. will be hurt no matter when he finds out I asked you for help.

Jason: He left you alone. He knew you'd been getting the calls, right? Well, I mean, why shouldn't you go to somebody for help?

Courtney: Somebody. Not his brother who works for my brother. A.J. wants me to stay away from Sonny, and it makes him crazy when you fix things for me. I think the best thing that could happen to us would be if we caught that stalker before A.J. got back. Maybe I wouldn't have to tell him at all. Unless he wins his court case, and then maybe he won't even care. I mean, he'll be so thrilled about having money again. I'm dreaming.

Jason: Look, I -- I know that you're trying really hard to think of A.J. First, to do what's right by him. You love your husband. You're doing your best. But you need to give yourself a break. You didn't ask to be stalked.

Courtney: Yeah, but I agreed to strip, and this guy is obviously Daisy's biggest fan.

Jason: No wonder you and Sonny fight all the time. You're a lot alike.

Courtney: Please.

Jason: No, it's true. You both do incredibly hard things for the right reasons, and then you beat yourself up about it.

Courtney: Are you saying that I should be proud of my life as a stripper?

Jason: No, you should be proud that you stood up to protect someone you love, that you got through something that you hated so much without backing down or breaking. You're a strong person, Courtney. There's nothing wrong with that.

[Rosie barks]

Courtney: Oh, guess what, Mr. Bodyguard. Your first official duty is to help me walk the dog.

Jason: No --

Courtney: Yes. Oh, I know it's a glamorous job.

Elizabeth: Lucky.

Lucky: Hi.

Elizabeth: Hi. Are you all right?

Lucky: Actually, no, I'm not. My mother's catatonic. My father's a fugitive. My little sister misses them like crazy because she has no idea where they are.

Elizabeth: I'm sorry, Lucky. I know this must be really hard.

Lucky: You know, I think a lot about all the love I used to have around me and my life, and I see -- I see that I took it all for granted. It's all gone, Elizabeth. My mom and dad -- they were so happy. They were getting ready for their wedding. And now my entire family's destroyed. How did it all just fall apart so fast, you know? And why couldn't I do anything about it?

Brenda: The nurse said you wanted to see me.

Jax: Yeah, come in. Sit down.

Jax: Look, thanks for what you said to Skye.

Brenda: Don't thank me because I feel awful. It was wrong. It was unfair.

Jax: I know -- I know, I know, but it worked.

Brenda: No, it didn't.

Jax: It will work, ok? Skye doesn't want to believe that I'm leaving her for you, but she will if you do me one last favor.

Jax: Skye's coming back soon, and she's determined to keep me. But if she sees that you and I are serious --

Brenda: You know, what else do you want me to say to her? Did you hear what I said to her?

Jax: You can kiss me.

Brenda: What?

Jax: You can kiss me. If she sees that you and I have connected in some way that I can't connect with her, then she'll believe me.

Brenda: I can't believe you'd asked me to do that.

Jax: I know -- I know it's asking a lot. I'm sorry. But I swear, I'll never ask you to do anything for me again.

Skye: Nurse, excuse me. Could you page my husband's doctor for me?

Nurse: Certainly.

Jax: Come on, just one kiss. How bad can that be?

Scott: I guess the debate didn't go as planned.

Alexis: I trust this experience will convince you to forget the personal attacks and stick to the issues.

Scott: Ok, so the affidavit was a bust, but we both know that Carly's lying. You did sleep with Sonny. One day, it'll bite you.

Alexis: Not to get personal, but you're a pig.

Edward: This affidavit really explains so much.

Ned: It's been thoroughly discredited, grandfather.

Edward: Bosh. Carly was lying through her teeth, and you know it very well. But it does explain your attitude toward the baby. Alexis isn't carrying your child, Ned. The father is Sonny.

Sonny: It's true. Alexis has decided she hates me. She attacks me in the press on a weekly basis. And if she gets elected to D.A., Her goal in life is going to be to take me down. If and when that happens, I will deal with it. I just want your word you did not sign that affidavit to hurt Alexis.

Carly: I didn't, Sonny. I swear, Scott had me backed into a corner.

Sonny: All right. I believe you. That's the last I want to say about it.

Carly: That's because there's so much more that you don't even know. Look, Sonny, I -- I have been silent for too long, and first it was out of some fear, and then it was out of some misguided loyalty to some stupid principle.

Sonny: What are you talking about?

Carly: Look, I'm not going to let your trust in me go away or lose our marriage because of some vindictive, hateful woman who only wants to hurt you.

Sonny: Where are we going with this, Carly?

Carly: You know when you took me to the island and we worked out all our problems and you told me that you couldn't have a wife who lied to you?

Sonny: Right.

Carly: And I told you I couldn't promise that I'd never lie to you again. I couldn't promise it to you, Sonny, because I was keeping a secret.

Sonny:  Ok.
