>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Elizabeth: What is it?

Lucky: It's from my father. He sent me his will.

A.J.: Hey, sweetie.

Courtney: Hey.

Jane: What about Brenda?

Jax: Skye is the woman I love.

Brenda: I loved Jax, but I have no intention of talking to him about my feelings.

Ned: Grandfather has figured out the truth.

Alexis: About the baby?

Edward: I have reason to believe that you are the father of Alexis' child.

Alexis: Something's wrong with the baby.

Edward: It's just as well that Leticia brought Michael home when she did. That way we can discuss this more comfortably while Carly's upstairs with him.

Sonny: Who says there's anything to discuss?

Edward: Now, look, I can understand your need to lie to the press, but why would you need to lie to me? Surely you can appreciate the fact that Alexis could be carrying your baby.

Sonny: Ok, Edward, my son is upstairs getting ready to go to bed. We're not having this discussion with him in the house.

Edward: Fine. Let's take a walk.

Sonny: No, you take a walk. Where the hell do you get off coming here asking questions about my private life?

Edward: Oh, Carly. Say, how is my little great-grandson doing?

Carly: Michael is tired from the park. He is in bed trying to get some sleep, so please keep your voice down.

Sonny: Edward's just leaving, actually.

Edward: Oh, I don't think you want that, because I'm in a position to do you a real favor.

Sonny: Since when, Edward? You come here making allegations about things that don't concern you. So what are you talking about?

Edward: I'm very concerned that Ned is going to be bringing up a baby that isn't his. And you should be concerned, too, because you are the father.

Sonny: How do you know? Alexis tell you? Because, hey, you know what? She denied she ever slept with me.

Edward: Oh, god, political candidates lie all the time about everything, especially something as embarrassing as a sexual liaison with a known criminal.

Sonny: You're bluffing.

Edward: This affidavit that Baldwin produced is very illuminating. Did you know that the approximate time of your encounter with Alexis matches the baby's due date? Did you know that? You add to that the fact that Ned has a very hands-off approach toward fatherhood -- absolutely different than he was with little Brooke Lynn -- can lead to only one conclusion -- Ned is not the father of the child, you are.

Sonny: Even if it were true, what the hell does it have to do with you?

Edward: Well, I'm willing to make you a deal, an even trade. I will see to it that you get your child if you will see to it that the Quartermaines get Michael back.

Bobbie: Alexis? Hi. They called me at the E.R., told me you were coming. Have the cramps subsided?

Alexis: No, they're -- they're strong and they're sharp.

Bobbie: Ok, I'll take it from here. Dr. Meadows has a private room waiting for you, and we're going to get you hooked up to a fetal heart monitor and figure out what we need to do for you, ok?

Ned: Is the cramping serious?

Bobbie: Well, we're concerned. It could mean that the placenta is separating from the uterus.

Alexis: What? Is the baby going to be all right?

Bobbie: Well, the important thing right now is for you to stay very calm.

Ned: Is the baby at risk?

Bobbie: Right now both Alexis and the baby could be.

Alexis: Oh --

Bobbie: Come on, let's go. Ok?

A.J.: Hey.

Courtney: Hey.

A.J.: You ok? Jason.

Courtney: I know what you're thinking, but I can explain. Jason's here because I asked him to be. I didn't know who else to call.

A.J.: Honey, honey, it's ok. I sort of expected it, anyway. I mean, when I called, you said that the stalker was -- well, it was getting worse, so I suspected that you would call Jason for help. The important thing is you're ok, you know? I'm glad you were here, Jase.

Elizabeth: It may not be as bad as it looks.

Lucky: My dad sends me a will. What am I supposed to think?

Elizabeth: Well, it could be a message or maybe -- maybe he needs your help.

Lucky: No, no. No, that's not his style. This is fair warning.

Elizabeth: Of what?

Nikolas: Hey, guys.

Elizabeth: Hey.

Nikolas: Listen, I think you should know what Mom's doctors said about her condition.

Lucky: Is she still catatonic?

Nikolas: She's unresponsive, which is basically catatonic. Listen, I did what you wanted me to. They will not use drug therapy to bring her out of it, but she is more fragile than she's ever been.

Lucky: My dad's not doing much better, either. He just sent me that by express mail.

Nikolas: Hey, wait a second. Your dad's running from a life sentence in prison. Why would he take the time to write a will?

Lucky: Because he thinks he's going to die.

Elizabeth: No, maybe he got hurt when he broke into the clinic to see your mom.

Lucky: Yeah. Yeah, you bet he was. After seeing what happened to her, he thinks he's got nothing left to live for.

Jax: Skye has fought with everything she has to love me through this, but I love her too much to let her throw away her life tied to a man in a wheelchair.

John: Are you sure you're giving Skye enough credit?

Jax: Skye was willing to make a huge sacrifice for me. I couldn't let her. So I pushed her away.

Jane: That's nonsense, Jax. Skye's your wife, she loves you. Turning away from her because you're injured is completely unfair.

Jax: You sound like Brenda. You know, she called me a quitter. That made me so -- so angry. I think that emotional outburst was what actually caused my leg to move.

Jane: Because of a fight with Brenda?

Jax: Yeah. Yeah, she's a feisty one.

Jane: I know how you felt about Brenda, and I know how much you love Skye. And I know that none of this is your fault, Jax, but it's an impossible situation and it can't continue.

Jax: You're telling me to decide who I want?

Brenda: I really do have to go.

Skye: It took Jax forever to get over you the first time. If you leave now, he will carry a torch for you the rest of his life -- unless, of course, that is what you want.

Brenda: I want Jax to be happy.

Skye: Well, then you can't go. You need to resolve this for Jax's sake.

Brenda: What do you mean?

Skye: Stay. Stay and convince Jax that you don't love him anymore.

Brenda: Listen, I love Jax, you know that, and so does he.

Skye: You say you want to see Jax happy? Is that true?

Brenda: Yes.

Skye: Then prove it. Let him go, Brenda. If Jax really thinks that you still love him, he'll feel responsible for you. He'll feel a loyalty to everything you two ever shared together even though he's made a commitment to me. You need to stay and help him through his physical therapy and convince him that whatever you two had is in the past.

Brenda: Why are you even worried about this? You don't have to worry. I am dying. I am not a threat to you.

Skye: Not to me, ok, to Jax, because you know how Jax is. When he falls in love, he gives himself over completely with his whole heart. No, you need to make a decision, Brenda. You either go off and die and let Jax mourn over your memory for the rest of his life, or you do the right thing, ok? You give him closure. You make him see that you are a part of the past, and that he and I are the future. If you love him, if you really love him like I do, you will let him go.

Lucky: This will is about my father facing the fact that he has to let my mom go, and he's given up on himself in the process.

Elizabeth: You don't know that. You weren't there.

Lucky: No, but I can tell you exactly what happened. He broke in there, tried to help my mom, she freaked just by seeing him.

Nikolas: He is the trigger to everything Mom can't forget about Rick's death.

Lucky: You know, I don't think my dad believed the doctors when they told him. But when he went in there, his whole world he knew was gone. It's got to be killing him.

Elizabeth: He still has you, Lucky, and Lulu.

Lucky: But my mom made him who he was. Without my mom, there is no Luke Spencer. That's what he's trying to say in this will. I should've seen this thing coming. He did. He told me the day when I went into the police station and confessed. He told me to take care of my little sister. My dad's telling me that he's through running, that he's through, period.

Scott: Lucky, did you just say you heard from your father?

Courtney: The stalker broke into our apartment. He set up cameras to watch me and he made sure that I knew about it.

A.J.: You must've been terrified. I mean, why didn't you tell me? Give me more detail. When I called, you made it sound like it was nothing, and I don't --

Courtney: I thought that I could handle it. I did. But I got freaked out, so I called Jason for help.

A.J.: Is he a real threat?

Jason: He's creative. He's got some money. He rented an apartment right across the street, all kinds of video surveillance equipment in it. He called to decoy us while he broke in again.

A.J.: Do you have any idea who this guy is?

Jason: Not yet.

Courtney: I don't want this guy to think that I was afraid of him or that he can scare me out of my own home, so I let Jason stay on the couch just to make sure that nothing happened.

Jason: I installed new locks, electronic sensors on the window, and a titanium plate on the door.

A.J.: Oh, that's why my key didn't work. I'm glad you were here. I appreciate it and I will pay you back everything you're out of pocket for this stuff, ok? Could take a while. I lost the case. The government won't be releasing any of my funds, so --

Jason: Well, I should go.

Courtney: Wait, Jason. Thank you for everything. I'll be ok now that A.J.'s home.

A.J.: Yeah.

Courtney: I am so glad that you are home.

A.J.: Yeah. Me, too. I missed you.

Courtney: Thank you for not coming down on Jason for staying here.

A.J.: He did you a favor.

Courtney: Yeah, he did. But tell me the truth -- you're angry I didn't tell you Jason was helping me, aren't you?

Carly: You will never get your hands on my son, you --

Sonny: Carly -- this is business.

Edward: I'll accept that as a confirmation of your little tryst with Alexis. Now, all we have to do is settle on the terms. As I suggested, it'd be an even trade. You will get custody of your child -- when it's born, of course -- and we'll get custody of Michael, and the sooner the better.

Carly: No, Michael will be staying here with his family --

Sonny: Ok, you know what? Before we open negotiations, I need proof that Alexis' baby is mine.

Edward: You want proof? All right. I'll arrange for a DNA test. Alexis had an amnio, so we have a sample from the child, and all I need is your DNA A lock of hair will do fine.

Carly: Ok, you can't be serious about this. You know what? Edward, get out. Get out. Sonny, don't. Don't you --

Sonny: You know, if we're going to get results, we have to have proof one way or the other, so I'm just going to cut my own hair here, right? Here we go. Ok. Here you go, Edward. Put this in here. Not a word to anyone until the test results come back. You understand me, Edward?

Edward: Agreed.

Sonny: Ok.

Edward: This must be kept private at all costs.

Sonny: All right.

Edward: So I'll notify you when the results are in and we can make formal arrangements then.

Carly: You bastard. You swore that you loved Michael.

Sonny: You know I do.

Carly: Oh, really? Is this how you prove it? By using my son as a bargaining chip?

Sonny: That's not what's happening --

Carly: Yeah, you know what? You are damn right! You are damn right it's not, because you are not going to punish me by threatening to --

Sonny: Is that what you think I'm doing? Paying you back for lying to me about my own child?

Carly: No, stop it! I did not lie! I told you the truth! And if you want to hate me for it, it is fine, but you will never, ever trade Michael for Alexis' baby!

Dr. Meadows: Ok, Bobbie. How's the toco?

Bobbie: It's returning to baseline, no deceleration.

Dr. Meadows: B.P.?

Bobbie: It's 138/74. Might be severe Braxton-Hicks or dehydration.

Dr. Meadows: How frequent are the pains?

Alexis: About every five to 10 minutes.

Dr. Meadows: Lower back pain or do you feel it more in your abdomen?

Alexis: It's -- lower part of my abdomen. It feels like cramps. Can you tell me what's going on?

Dr. Meadows: Any spotting?

Alexis: No. Is the baby all right?

Dr. Meadows: Well, the placenta's intact. At this point, we feel the baby appears to be fine. But you, Alexis, are another story.

Scott: Your father is a fugitive.

Lucky: You keep reminding me.

Scott: He's a felon. If he's contacted you and you're covering it up, that's aiding and abetting, and you're a felon.

Elizabeth: You know what? Leave him alone, Scott. His mother is sick and his father's in trouble.

Nikolas: Thanks to you.

Elizabeth: I don't care who you are. You have no right to come down on Lucky like this.

Scott: Stay out of this, Elizabeth. It's the best advice I'm going to give you.

Elizabeth: Is it so impossible for you to show a little compassion? What's the point of badgering Lucky?

Scott: I'm just doing my job.

Nikolas: Really? Pushing people around is your job? Lying about Alexis at the debate -- that's your job, too?

Scott: Finding --

Nikolas: Railroading Lucky's father into a confession off of some old vendetta, Scott? Is that it?

Scott: Take it easy, will you? Finding the truth -- that is my job.

Nikolas: Oh, do me a favor -- don't even go there with me. Please don't start, unless you want to talk about everything you've covered up.

Scott: Listen to me, all right, you're supposed to be the sensible brother. Now, rein in your dummy brother here before he does something that just can't be overlooked.

Lucky: I'm sorry -- guys. This isn't your fight.

Nikolas: No, no. We're family, all right? We're going to stick through it. And for what it's worth, your dad is a survivor. You know that he's going to get through this. You know it as well as I do.

A.J.: I don't like turning to Jason for anything, I never will, but I understand why you did.

Courtney: So you're not angry with me?

A.J.: You were alone and afraid. You had to do something, right? I would've been more upset if you let yourself be a target. I just -- I just wish I could've been here.

Courtney: If I had asked, you would've been. I just -- I didn't want to interfere with your court case. I know how badly you wanted to win.

A.J.: Yeah. Yeah, I would've liked to have my money back so that I could give you the life you deserve.

Courtney: All that I care about is having you home.

A.J.: Here I am. Well, the bright side is I -- I still have my job on the docks, and the amazing thing is that after all the insanity, I still have you. Now -- I don't want you to be afraid, so be honest with me. You really ok?

Courtney: The worst part was knowing that he was here in our home. Jason and I, we went over there to that setup he had across the street, and there was this shrine to Daisy.

A.J.: What do you mean?

Courtney: He collected all this stuff -- fliers from the Oasis, some pictures, pieces of my costumes. It just -- it gives me the creeps just thinking about it. And when we were out, he came back in here. We found daisies all over the bed. For a moment, A.J., I swear I could feel him like he was still in the room with me.

A.J.: Oh, hey, it's ok.

Courtney: Jason -- he had the locks changed, so I'm sure that the worst is over with.

A.J.: I don't know. I appreciate everything Jason's done, but I would've handled the situation a lot differently.

Brenda: Hey.

Jax: Oh, hey.

Brenda: Hi.

Jax: Hi.

Brenda: I just saw your parents.

Jax: You did?

Brenda: Yeah.

Jax: Oh, they must've been glad to see you.

Brenda: I didn't let them see me.

Jax: Well, they know you're here. I told them. I told them what you did for me.

Brenda: I didn't do anything.

Jax: I've had specialists flown in from all over the world, you know, physical therapists. None of them made any difference.

Brenda: Well --

Jax: Skye tried, as well.

Brenda: You did this on your own. Well, I'll take credit for making you lose your temper, but that's about it. Have you felt anything else?

Jax: I will.

Brenda: I know. I'm sorry for all this.

Jax: Hey. It's not your fault. Alcazar is the reason I'm in here.

Brenda: And I'm the reason for Luis.

Jax: Hey --

Brenda: I hope that I haven't caused any permanent damage to you or to your life. I want you to promise me something, too. I want you to promise me that no matter what, you'll never accept anything less than the best, because that's what you deserve.

Jax: You've come to tell me that you're leaving, haven't you?

Jax: That's why you're here, right? To make sure you say good-bye this time?

Brenda: I'm not leaving yet.

Jax: You're not?

Brenda: No. Well, getting mad is the only therapy you've responded to and you know I'm good at that.

Jax: So, what, are you offering yourself up as my therapist?

Brenda: Yes, I am. I'm your new therapist. I am here to help you with anything you need. And as soon as you are up and walking -- which will be very soon -- then I'll figure out what I'm going to do next.

Jax: I have a feeling that this -- this recovery could take a while.

Brenda: This is not a negotiation.

Jax: Oh, I'm not negotiating with you, believe me.

Brenda: Oh, I know you. I'm not some saxophone player you can convince to play until dawn. I'm staying here until you're better, but I -- I can't stuff my feelings anymore for everybody. I can't afford to.

Jax: Look, I know it's not fair to ask you for time. But finding you again, and then the thought of you leaving my life so soon --

Brenda: You know, I -- I know this has been hard on everyone and I've been trying to make it right for everyone, but I don't even recognize myself lately. So I need to take care of myself and you need to take care of yourself. So, you get some rest. I'll be back tomorrow.

Jax: All right.

Brenda: We'll talk more.

Jax: Right. Don't worry about a thing, ok?

Brenda: Ok. I'll see you.

Jax: Bye.

Brenda: Can I use this phone?

Nurse: Sure. Dial nine for an outside line.

Brenda: Thanks.

Brenda: Hey, it's me. I need to see you right away.

Sonny: I'd never risk Michael. You know that.

Carly: You just told Edward you were willing to negotiate.

Sonny: All I'm trying to do is lead him on long enough so I can find out if Alexis' baby's mine. Then I can go to court when I got proof and file for shared custody.

Carly: She's going to fight you with everything she has. She's going to lie about you --

Sonny: Then I'll lie right back. And if that doesn't work, I'll find another way. She's not keeping that baby from me. Alexis does not have the power.

Carly: And what if you don't, either? What if it comes down to a choice between Michael and her baby? What are you going to do? Is the chance to raise your own biological child going to mean more to you than Michael?

Sonny: Michael's my son, that's forever. I have an obligation to him like I have an obligation to my new baby. I am not set up to fight -- I don't know -- I don't know what I'm going to do next, because my wife -- because my wife kept a secret from me!

Carly: Oh, no.

Michael: Mommy? Daddy?

Carly: God. Hey. Come here. What's the matter, honey?

Michael: I had a bad dream that Daddy was gone.

Carly: It's ok. He's here.

Dr. Meadows: You're putting yourself and your child at unacceptable risk.

Alexis: I didn't mean to do that.

Dr. Meadows: That baby you're carrying inside you, your daughter, you're ignoring her and she needs your help. And I can't seem to get you to pay any attention.

Dr. Meadows: Right now. I want to rehydrate her, a minimum three days bed rest. We'll assess at that point.

Bobbie: I'll give her a liter and check her orthostatics.

Dr. Meadows: You do want this baby, correct?

Dr. Meadows: Then I suggest you start acting like placental abruption as a cause of the cramping. In my opinion, it's stress and dehydration. Alexis participated in a televised debate earlier today.

Alexis: There were unexpected complications.

Dr. Meadows: Which are exactly what we don't need. So for the next three days, you are to stay confined to this bed and follow instructions.

Alexis: I will. I promise you I'll stay in my apartment, in bed. Ned will help me.

Dr. Meadows: You need to be in the hospital under medical supervision. You have pushed it this far.

Alexis: I understand. I'll do whatever you say.

Dr. Meadows: Use this time to evaluate how to simplify your life and minimize stress for the remainder of your pregnancy.

Alexis: Think it's too late for prenatal yoga?

Ned: You need to make a choice before it gets made for you.

Courtney: Jason did everything he could to get rid of the stalker.

A.J.: Look, I understand why Jason couldn't go to the police, given what he does for a living, but that's the first thing I would've done, sweetheart. I mean, the police are equipped to handle this sort of thing. They would've come in and taken down all the cameras. They would've swept for fingerprints and bugs, hair and fiber evidence.

Courtney: Well, Jason -- he did get rid of the cameras and he had a security guy come in here and sweep --

A.J.: His so-called security guy couldn't get forensic evidence. That stalker is out there, and there's no way to track his identity. By you and Jason not going to the police, I'm afraid that you might've given this stalker even more courage. You gave him the reaction he was looking for.

Courtney: I never thought of that.

A.J.: You pretty much did what he wanted you to do - you paid way too much attention, you rushed out to look for his secret hideaway.

Courtney: Yeah, so he could come in here and do what he wanted while we were gone.

A.J.: Yeah, see, I would've cut the whole thing off from the beginning. Why let him push you into what he wants?

Courtney: I am just glad that you're here now. You have no idea how much I missed you.

A.J.: Well, you know, maybe you should tell me again.

Courtney: Or maybe I'll just show you. You know, I didn't sleep at all while you were gone.

A.J.: How could you? You had this creep stalking you the whole time.

Courtney: It was more than that, because you weren't here. I'd just lie in bed alone, thinking about you, the way you hold me, and I'd almost get to sleep, but then I'd realize that you weren't really here, so I'd have to start all over again and pretend that you were.

A.J.: Well, now you don't have to pretend anymore, do you? I'm here.

Edward: The lab already has the child's DNA On file. Mm-hmm. And I will supply samples from both potential fathers. All right. All right, good. I'll be in touch.

Lila: Edward, what on earth are you doing?

Edward: Oh, Lila, I -- I didn't -- I didn't hear you come in. Reginald, if you don't mind, I'd like a moment alone with my wife, please.

Reginald: Yeah, look, whatever lie you're scrambling to come up with, don't bother. She's onto you.

Edward: Why don't you go dust something? God, he's -- he's getting worse every day. He is rude, he's insubordinate, and why do you keep encouraging him?     God.

Lila: I adore Reginald. At least he's right about you -- you're up to something.

Carly: Sweetie, I know that it's scary when you dream that Daddy's gone. But you know what? It's -- it's just that, it's just a dream.

Sonny: I'm right here, right? I'm not leaving you. You know what's good about dreams is they go away. All you got to do is turn on a light, come see your Mommy and Daddy, and you know you're going to be ok.

Michael: Did you have bad dreams when you were a kid?

Sonny: Yeah, I had bad dreams. Yeah, they were scary, too, you know. And I was afraid, you know, just like you.

Michael: Did the bad stuff go away when you woke up?

Sonny: Always, always. It always goes away. Dreams can't hurt you. I will never let anything happen to you. You know that? I'm your father, ok, and I love you more than anything in the world, ok?

Michael: I love you, too, Daddy.

Elizabeth: Lucky, it's late. Why don't you go upstairs and go to bed.

Lucky: I'm sorry, you want to close up.

Elizabeth: No, no. That -- listen, there's nothing you can do for your father tonight. Why don't you go to bed and sleep on it. Maybe it'll be clearer in the morning.

Lucky: Why would he send this, Elizabeth? What was he thinking?

Elizabeth: He's obviously thinking of you and your sister.

Lucky: Got to be more than that. Maybe you're right. Maybe this is some sort of cry for help.

Elizabeth: Or maybe it's part of a scam he's running.

Lucky: Either way, there's only one thing I can do -- I got to go out there and find my father.

A.J.: Whoa. If this is the kind of homecoming I can expect, I should go away more often -- like every other day.

Courtney: Or maybe you just should never leave.

A.J.: I won't. I promise.

[Phone rings]

Courtney: Oh, hey, let me.

A.J.: Whoever it is, tell them to go away.

Courtney: Hello?

Man: [Distorted voice] your husband's back, but don't think that changes anything between us.

Courtney: It's him.

A.J.: Listen to me, you sick son of a bitch. Not only will I call the cops, I will come after you myself. I'll hunt you down like a dog. You hear me, you sick freak?

Courtney: Thank god you're here.

A.J.: Yeah.

Edward: Lila, you know that Ned is about to become a father, hmm? And I was just feeling kind of nostalgic. Do you remember when Ned was a toddler?

Lila: Of course I do.

Edward: Hmm.

Lila: What are you planning?

Edward: Fine. My plan is to get your little great-grandson back in this house once and for all. Sonny Corinthos is the father of Alexis' baby, not Ned. Once I have proof of that and show it to Sonny, he's willing to make a trade. Now, he will get his child, and we will get Michael back here, and everyone will finally be happy.

Lila: Edward, you should know by now, whenever you meddle like this, it always blows up in your face.

Edward: Not this time.

Carly: I'm sorry I doubted your love for Michael. You're not saying anything?

Sonny: Oh, what's there to say? You helped Alexis lie to me about my own child. I don't know what else I can say over here, you know?

Carly: I told you the truth, and I'm sorry it wasn't sooner, but I'm not perfect. I did the best I could under the --

Sonny: The best you could is lie to my face?

Carly: I told you about your baby because I love you. And because I want you to know your child even though you fathered it with another woman.

Sonny: You're my wife. You keep asking me to trust you, and then I -- somehow I find a way and then you lie again.

Carly: Alexis lied.

[Sonny chuckles]

Carly: Ned lied. I told you the truth and I see that that's not good enough.

Sonny: No, it's not, actually, because you let people lie to my face. You let me walk around like an idiot, not knowing I had a child on the way.

Carly: Well, you know now. Ok, you know what? The baby's not going to be born until February or something. You've got plenty of time to get to know --

Sonny: That's not the point, Carly.

Carly: What's the point?

Sonny: The point is I don't know if I can get past this! I don't know if I can believe you again and then find out that there's another secret, another lie.

Carly: There's nothing else, Sonny.

Sonny: No, no, don't even try to promise me that you're not going to lie again because I can't hear it. All I know right now is I got two children, ok? I got Michael, who I promise I won't leave, and I got a new baby who Alexis is going to try to keep away from me. I need to prove that I'm a good parent, a man with a family. I would walk out that door right now if I could, but I need you -- for Michael --

Carly: Yeah.

Sonny: And for my new baby. That's the best I can do right now.

Ned: I think of this child as my own. I want to stay involved. And I'm asking you to carefully consider what to do next. You're the only one who can foresee what kind of stress you're going to be under for the rest of this campaign, especially given Scott's latest tactics.

Alexis: There is no question as to which is more important. It's my girl.

Jason: Hey. What happened? Alcazar come after you?

Brenda: Luis has been arrested.

Jason: Yeah, but he's got guys working for him and I know how much you love bodyguards. I think you should have one.

Brenda: Ok, you know what? I didn't ask you down here to school me on security measures.

Jason: You don't think he might order one of his guys to grab you while you're wandering around in Port Charles unprotected?

Brenda: Do you live in a constant state of paranoia? I mean, do you ever relax, go to the movies, or do you just sit around and think about Sonny and who you're going to lie to for him next?

Jason: That was for your protection.

Brenda: Well, thanks for freaking me out and letting me think that he's dead.

Jason: If you stayed where you were supposed to, none of this would even have happened.

Brenda: Oh, yeah. You guys looked like you had everything really under control.

Jason: Yeah. Babysitting you sure didn't help us. You know what? You need to think about what you're doing and how you affect other people's lives for once, Brenda.

Brenda: Thanks for the advice. Thank you. I just -- I called you here because I wanted you to know that Jax moved his foot today. Now, I'm going to stay here until he gets better, and then I'm going back to Europe. But --

Jason: What? You need money?

Brenda: The Quartermaines told me that my estate has been settled, and I gave all my money to charity.

Jason: So you need money.

Brenda: No, no, no, no, no.

Jason: You're asking me for money.

Brenda: Don't you get that attitude with me. Sonny offered me money and I said no. I don't want charity.

Jason: Ok, I'll pay for anything you need.

Brenda: Yes, I know that you will and I'm going to pay you back. I don't want to owe anyone money, especially someone I hate.

Jason: You're welcome. Do you need a ride somewhere?

Brenda: From you? No, thanks.

Jason: Ok. Good. Bye.

Monica: Hello. I'm on my way home, but I wanted to stop in and see how you're doing.

Jax: Much better, actually. I had a breakthrough today, and Brenda agreed to stay in Port Charles and help me with my physical therapy.

Monica: Well, good.

Jax: Yeah.

Monica: I'm glad you're going to be getting the help that you need. Oh, yes, your wife gave me this to give to you. And you get some rest, and I'll see you tomorrow.

Jax: Thanks.

Skye's voice: "Dear sweet Jax, you're my life and I love you. All I want is to see you get better. And if that means staying away from you, of course that's what I'll do. The pain of not having you in my life is nothing compared with the joy that I'll feel the day I see you walking out of that hospital on your own. I love you always. Skye."

[Phone rings]

Skye's voice: Hi. We're not here at the moment, so please leave a message and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Thanks.

[Answering machine beeps]

Jax: Skye. Hey, it's me. If you're there, pick up. Look, I just finished reading your letter, and I wanted to say that I'm sorry. I was wrong. I never stopped loving you. I hope you know that. I pray you do. I need you with me on this. We'll work this out. It's what I want. You're what I want. So hopefully I'll talk to you soon. I love you.

[Jax hangs up]

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Elizabeth: You remember, don't you?

Bobbie: Get out of my diner, Scott! Go! Just go!

Scott: Peace offering.

Skye: I am grateful for your help.

Brenda: Don't worry, I'm playing by your rules.

Jax: You saved my life. I'm in your debt.

Sonny: Oh, don't worry about it. I didn't do it for you.
