Proofread by Audrie
>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Lucky: I'm going to get you out of here. I'm going to take you to Alexis, and we're going to --
Luke: Stop it! Your mother is gone and so am I.
Coleman: You are a pathetic judge of people, and you are in for a rude awakening, my dear.
Scott: Your honor, the state moves to drop all charges against Alcazar.
judge: Order. Order. Order in the court.
Luke: Oh --
guard: Poe, back to work.
Luke: Yeah, or what? What's some dumb hayseed like you going to do to make my life worse?
Guard: Lock your butt in solitary, to start with.
Luke: Ooh, so scared.
Lucky: Hey, we don't got any problems here. Come on, get back to work.
Luke: What are you trying to do, get a little certificate as a model prisoner of the month?
Lucky: I'm just trying to save your butt from getting locked in solitary before we can escape.
Luke: I don't want to escape. When are you going to get it? This hellhole suits me fine.
Lucky: Oh, it's just too bad, isn't it? Because the cavalry just arrived.
Elizabeth: Darn! I haven't been that flat since the fourth grade.
Nikolas: Ah. Thank you. One for you, one for me.
Gia: Are you worried because Lucky and Elizabeth didn't check in today?
Nikolas: Well, you know, it probably means that they found Luke, and he's in some sort of trouble. They're scrambling to get him out of it.
Gia: Well, now that Baldwin blew the Alcazar case, Alexis is going to win this election.
Gia: And once she is confirmed D.A., it should make it all right for Luke to come home.
Nikolas: Ok, to Alexis' victory.
Gia: And Scott's continued dive in the polls.
Monica: Look, I heard Alcazar say he was going to kill Jason. Why did you let the man go?
Scott: He's got friends in high places.
Edward: Yeah, but a shrewd D.A. Would've anticipated that and would've been ready for it.
Alan: Yeah, and you were too busy digging up mud on Alexis.
Edward: And let's face it, the criminal element just outfoxed you.
Scott: We always our get our man.
Edward: Oh, god.
Felicia: Oh, my goodness!
Bobbie: "Goodness" has nothing to do with it.
Felicia: Oh, that's good.
Bobbie: So where's the birthday girl?
Felicia: She's in the powder room. She's doing her hair and her makeup. She dragged Georgie in to assist.
Bobbie: Hmm. I take it Maxie wasn't interested in any of your input?
Felicia: Well, my input was her costume. She wanted to go as this gothic vampire leather thing that had tattoos all over.
Bobbie: Oh, dear.
Lucas: So you explained that this is a hospital benefit and that she had to dress appropriately?
Felicia: I see you've had the same conversation with your mother.
Bobbie: Actually, we have, and Lucas understands that in addition to being Maxie's birthday, this is also a very important evening. And so the deal is, you're going to act responsibly, right?
Lucas: That's the deal.
A.J.: You sure you want to do this?
Courtney: Your grandmother gave us these tickets so that we could have fun.
A.J.: Yeah, well, she doesn't know you're being stalked.
Courtney: Hey, I doubt this stalker forked out the cash to be here. Anyway, I'm Cinderella, and I'm at my ball, and I think I can already tell that this is going to be my favorite Halloween ever.
Jax: You know, I am still recovering from surgery. It's not fair to get my blood pressure up like this.
Skye: Hmm. You approve?
Jax: You look absolutely gorgeous. I wish I could go with you.
Skye: Oh. I wish I could stay here with you tonight. But I did promise grandmother that I would put in an appearance.
Skye: And since it is our club, I should make sure things are running smoothly. But I -- I won't stay long. I will be thinking of you the whole time.
Jax: Oh, you go and have fun. Just don't fall in love with any masked strangers.
Skye: There's only one man I will ever love, and that is you.
Skye: See you later.
Brenda: Give me that. Give it to me.
Jason: Hey, if you want something, you just ask.
Brenda: Give it to me. Yeah, I do. I want your gun. Give me the gun.
Jason: Why? Why?
Brenda: Why do you think?
Jason: You want to kill Alcazar.
Brenda: Yes, of course I do. Now give me the gun. Come on, I don't have anything to lose. Come on --
Jason: Get off --
Brenda: Give me the gun!
Jason: Will you just knock it --
Sonny: Trick or treat!
Carly: Trick or treat!
Michael: Trick or treat.
Carly: I guess we're interrupting.
Lucky: This is our chance.
Luke: I did the crime, I'll do the time.
Lucky: If you're so hell-bent on being a convict, why didn't you just stay in Pentonville and do your time there?
Luke: Because I had a reason to escape then and I don't now.
Lucky: So, what, you're going to do forced labor and mouth off to guards until you get shot to death? Is that your way of punishing yourself for what happened to Mom?
Luke: I'm so sick of your amateur psychoanalysis.
Lucky: Fine. Then I'll save my breath. We're going to need it for the run.
Elizabeth: Oh, shoot!
Guard: Would you like some help there, little lady?
Elizabeth: Well, yes, I would. Thank you very much. I -- I thought I could do this myself, but I don't seem to be doing too well now, do I?
Luke: What the hell are you doing?
Prisoner: Psst -- you're never going to make it, man.
Luke: Tell him. I ain't going out of here.
Lucky: Let's go.
Luke: I ain't going anywhere.
Lucky: Come on! Come on!
Luke: God, this is crazy!
Guard: We got two runners, beau!
Elizabeth: Wait a minute --
Elizabeth: What about my tire? Oh, sweet mother of Maybelline! Oh, is there somebody dangerous out there? Did they get loose? How did they get loose?
Brenda: Look at your costume. I love it! What made you decide to be a firefighter?
Michael: People like firemen, so they'll give more candy.
Brenda: You're just like your dad. You know what? We don't have any candy right now --
Jason: Actually, we have a bag right here.
Brenda: We do have candy!
Carly: Oh, look at that.
Jason: This is the stuff you said was best, right?
Jason: Ok, so -- well, how many do you want?
Carly: Two. He'll have two.
Jason: Carly, I have a whole bag right here.
Carly: Yeah, and he's got a whole building to go trick-or-treating in. It's no fun if your family gives you all your candy before you get started, right?
Jason: All right, grab two. And then you can come back tomorrow because I'll have this whole bag left over for you, all right?
Carly: You want to show Brenda and Jason what we got for them?
Michael: Oh, yeah! Come on!
Carly: All right! We didn't think that you'd have a pumpkin, so --
Michael: It's not a pumpkin. It's a jack-o'-lantern.
Carly: Oh, right, right, it's a jack-o'-lantern. Once they're carved, sorry, they're jack-o'-lanterns.
Brenda: Wow. Look at that. That's great.
Jason: Yeah, that's cool, man, thanks.
Brenda: Thank you very much.
Carly: Yeah, they were carving them at the pumpkin patch, right?
Michael: Now kids will know you have candy to give out, if their moms will let them out of the elevator to go trick-or-treating. Sometimes they won't because Moms are afraid of Daddy's guards.
Brenda: Well, you know what the answer to that is? The guards will have the night off for Halloween. Right, Sonny?
Sonny: Whoa, whoa --
Brenda: Jason's here, you know, in case anything happens.
Jason: Brenda --
Michael: Please, Daddy?
Sonny: Are you sure? Pick up your hat. All right, it's a special occasion.
Sonny: Marco can stay in the lobby. Come here, Marco. I need a favor -- for the next couple of hours, stay downstairs until, you know, the children thin out, will you?
Sonny: Thanks. Oh, hey, hold that elevator, will you, because we're going to ride with you because it's time to --
Brenda: All right.
Sonny: All right!
Carly: Thank you, guys. Ooh -- oh, your hat keeps falling off. Grab it.
Jason: Hey, hey, hey. I was going to go out, but since you had the guards sent away, now it's just you and me.
Brenda: Oh, nice. Really nice.
Nikolas: You're here to concede the election, Scott?
Scott: I'm here to ask you for help with your mother.
Nikolas: Leave my mother out of this.
Scott: This has everything to do with Laura. Why do you think Lucky is campaigning so hard to get Alexis elected D.A.? She's promised to overturn Luke's conviction, throw out his confession, hasn't she?
Gia: Alexis promised to uphold the law, which is something you obviously could care less about.
Scott: Well, if Luke goes free, who do you think's going to take the rap for Rick Webber's death? Lucky is willing to sacrifice Luke for your mother. Are you?
Georgie: Hi. I thought you might want some soda.
Lucas: Champagne's better for a party. Great costume.
Georgie: Oh, thanks.
Lucas: So where's Maxie?
Georgie: She's fixing her hair. I mean, I was trying to help, but she kicked me out because she thought I was making it worse.
Lucas: Well, she did you a favor, because now I'm going to dance with you.
Alcazar: That is a beautiful costume -- Josephine, is it? Did you enjoy your trip to Switzerland? I understand we share a secret.
Brenda: Hey. What are you doing? What's that?
Jason: It's the new budget for the coffee warehouse we're building.
Brenda: Oh, god, do you ever do anything but work?
Jason: Why do you care?
Brenda: I don't. I'm just wondering, are we ever going to do anything that's actually fun?
Jason: "We"? There's no "we." I like to ride my motorcycle, travel, shoot some pool, fight on occasion.
Brenda: I know you like to fight.
Jason: What are you going to do, just sit there and flip through your magazine all day, all night, look for something to buy?
Brenda: You know what?
[Knock on door]
Jason: Why don't you go wash your head.
Jason: Just hold on, ok?
Brenda: Are you going to check the trick-or-treaters? They're kids!
Jason: I have to check.
Brenda: You think they have little mini-guns? Oh, god!
Kids: Trick or treat!
Brenda: Hi! Here, look, you're protecting me from the dangerous trick-or-treaters. Take a bunch. Here, take one more.
Kids: Thank you!
Skye: You get out of my club.
Alcazar: Not until you discuss your trip to Switzerland.
Skye: You tried to murder my husband!
Alcazar: You haven't told him what you learned at the clinic, have you?
Skye: What, that Brenda's perfectly healthy?
Alcazar: Brenda has no idea she isn't dying. If I had told her the truth, she would've run to Jax and you wouldn't have rated a second look. Brenda already believed she had the disease, so the doctored results were only confirmation.
Skye: They were a lie -- your lie.
Alcazar: They were a way of preventing her from going back to Jax. Letting Brenda believe she had a disease that was -- I was giving her time to fall in love with me. Eventually, I would've persuaded her to retake the test, and we would've discovered the miracle together -- the original diagnosis was wrong and she wasn't dying. By then, she would've stayed with me because she wanted me.
Skye: Then why did you come back to Port Charles?
Alcazar: To make sure she had no one to come back to. I'm not the kind of man who waits around, hoping things will work out.
Skye: Well, you're going to be bitterly disappointed when Brenda learns the truth.
Alcazar: And who's going to tell her? Not Dr. Reinmar. And certainly not you. Because the day Brenda finds out she doesn't have the disease is the day you lose Jax forever.
Carly: Now, you know, there's still time. We can come up with a costume for you.
Sonny: No, no, no. You know what?
Sonny: I don't do mud, I don't cook desserts, and I don't wear costumes. You know what I'm going to do?
Sonny: I'm going to escort you to this charity benefit and I'm going to watch you and everybody else make fools of themselves.
Carly: Ok, you know, I am so glad that Michael is asleep and he can't hear his father being negative about Halloween. Brat.
Sonny: Well, the point I'm making is, you know, Halloween, like, dressing up and that stuff, that's for children, not for grown men and women. But I got to tell you, you look -- you look damn good in that outfit.
Carly: Oh, yeah?
A.J.: You having fun?
Courtney: Mm-hmm. Why shouldn't I be? I mean, how many nights does a girl get to be Cinderella, dancing with her prince?
Courtney: Mm-hmm. Yeah.
A.J.: I'm sorry. Cookie? Would you like something to drink?
A.J.: I'll be right back.
Edward: Young lady, you're -- you're here at the invitation of Lila. And I think you could've found something a little more appropriate to wear so you wouldn't make a spectacle of yourself in that dress.
Courtney: A.J. chose this for me. It's appropriate.
Edward: Oh, of course it's appropriate -- for a stripper. You know, my dear, our family would appreciate it if you would act and dress with a little more decorum -- if not for yourself, for the reputation of the Quartermaines.
Courtney: Except for A.J.'s grandmother, I couldn't care less what the rest of your family thinks about me, and I thank god every day that A.J. walked out on you to be with me.
Edward: Oh, yes, and what a life you lead, upstairs in a walkup in the worst part of town, supported by a wife who waits tables during the day and takes her clothes off for money at night? Oh, you are just a disgrace. You are no better than your reprobate brother.
Courtney: You hate Sonny and me for the same reason -- because we're not afraid of you. We both see you for the bitter, pathetic, old man that you really are.
Man: Daisy, I'm watching you.
Courtney: Just stay away from me or I'll scream!
Man: I think you've had a little too much to drink.
Courtney: I'm sorry. I thought that you -- I'm sorry.
Skye: Jax is my husband. He's not going to leave me for Brenda.
Alcazar: You're not really that naive. If you want to hold on to Jax, you have only one option -- you don't tell anyone Brenda doesn't have the disease and you let me take her away. I give you my word we'll disappear without a trace.
Skye: Jax will search for her.
Alcazar: Jax already searched for her before. I managed to stay away from him. Besides, Jax thinks she's terminal. So in six months, he'll get confirmation of her death and you'll be there to comfort him -- the loyal wife, all the more beloved for her sympathy and understanding. You get Jax, I get Brenda, everyone wins.
Skye: Everyone wins.
Georgie: You are so going to get busted.
Lucas: When did you become such a wuss? We're supposed to be having fun. Oh, hey, it's the birthday girl.
Lucas: Wow! Not quite as good as the vampire Goth in leather thing, but you still look great.
Lucas: And your hair's nice, too. I heard Georgie was trying to sabotage you. I'm glad you didn't let her.
Georgie: He's drunk.
Maxie: Yeah, I can tell.
Lucas: Will you two relax? I had some champagne. It's not like it's a federal offense. Come on, let's dance.
Maxie: Forget it, not when you're drunk.
Lucas: When did you become such a behavior police? I'm going to go find some fun people to hang with.
Bobbie: Excuse me.
Felicia: Oh. I have to go check on my daughter.
Maxie: Get him out of here, quick, go.
Bobbie: What happened?
Maxie: Oh, I just bumped into a tray. I'm sorry.
Felicia: That's ok. It was an accident.
Bobbie: Well, where did Lucas go? Why didn't he stay and help you clean this up?
Maxie: Oh, well, Georgie wanted to show him some constellations she's been studying. It's really important to her, so I told them to go ahead, I'd clean it up.
Bobbie: Oh. Well, that was very thoughtful of you, Maxie.
Felicia: Yeah. Yes. Yeah, it was.
Georgie: Are you ok?
Lucas: No. I'm an idiot. And I'd be grounded right now for the rest of my life if your sister hadn't covered for me. Maxie's the best.
A.J.: Skye? Have you seen Courtney? She's Cinderella -- you know, puffy sleeves, clear slippers, the whole shebang.
Skye: Oh, sorry, I, haven't been paying much attention to the party. I guess I'm worried about Jax.
A.J.: Has there been a setback?
Skye: Other than the fact that Brenda the perfect is back from the dead?
A.J.: Oh. You mean your sister-in-law. What, her marriage to Jason isn't giving you any comfort?
Skye: Do I look comforted?, How do I keep from losing the man I love with all my heart?
A.J.: If there's one thing I've learned, you don't get what you deserve. You get what you got the strength to fight for. If you don't believe me, just ask the man who's got everything. If you want to hang on to the person you love with all your heart, you will do whatever it takes. You will fight with everything you've got, and don't worry about playing fair.
Skye: Would you make a deal with the devil to keep Courtney?
A.J.: In a heartbeat.
Courtney: No! God! Get away from me! Somebody help!
Jason: Go ahead. Whoa.
Brenda: Wait! Let me see.
Jason: Here, here, here. Here, you --
Jason: You finish. Go ahead.
Brenda: Look how cute you are!
Brenda: Here you go. Take more. He's rich.
Courtney: Jason, it's me.
Jason: What's -- what's wrong? Is it the stalker?
Courtney: I need you to come over here to my apartment now, please. I need your help.
Jason: Ok, I'll be right there.
Brenda: Did you see that little girl?
Jason: Look, I -- I have to go.
Brenda: Why? What's wrong?
Jason: Just stay inside, ok?
Brenda: Stay inside? What do you mean "stay inside"?
Jason: I don't have time for this.
Brenda: When the kids come --
Jason: No, just stay inside and keep the door shut, all right?
A.J.: Hey, Bobbie.
A.J.: Have you seen Courtney? Cinderella, puffy sleeves, clear slippers?
Bobbie: Actually, I did see the two of you dancing earlier, but I haven't seen her since.
Waiter: Mr. Quartermaine, your wife left this for you.
A.J.: Thank you.
Bobbie: Is everything all right?
A.J.: Yeah, she's not feeling well. She didn't want to -- she didn't want to take me away from the party, so --
Bobbie: Oh. Well, then, I suppose there's nothing to worry about.
A.J.: Yeah. Thank you.
Bobbie: Excuse me.
Lucas: Thanks for the save.
Maxie: You are such a jerk. This was my birthday present, to come here and be treated like an adult, and you almost blew it for all of us.
Georgie: Look, he said he was sorry. What do you want him to do -- pay a fine? It's not like you haven't done anything dumb in your life.
Maxie: Yeah, well, the dumbest yet is covering for you when I should be enjoying my birthday.
Lucas: So, how much do you think she's going to fine me? Ooh, could you loan me some money?
Taggert: Well, let me guess -- gangster, right?
Sonny: Instead of being half-naked, why don't you do your job for once and put a case together against Alcazar that will stick.
Taggert: You know, it's funny you mentioned that because that's why I came over -- to warn you that Alcazar is the PCPD's problem to solve, all right? So if he should have another fatal accident, you're the first person I'm going to arrest, all right?
Sonny: Like always?
Carly: Hey. Who are you looking for?
Bobbie: Lucas. Oh, honey, you look great.
Carly: No, you do.
Bobbie: Thank you.
Carly: You're welcome.
Bobbie: Did you wear that trick-or-treating with Michael?
Carly: Oh, I sure did.
Bobbie: Oh, good for you. Did you get pictures of him in his little fireman outfit?
Carly: Oh, I got half a roll and I will get you copies as soon as it's all developed.
Bobbie: Thank you.
Carly: You're welcome.
Bobbie: I did notice, though, you couldn't get Sonny into a costume.
Carly: Oh, are you kidding me? It took everything I had to just get him out of the house. I had to tell him we had to be here because we had to support the hospital.
Bobbie: So, how are things with Brenda living across the hall? Any idea how the marriage with Jason is going?
Carly: Marriage? Jason sacrificed himself so Sonny wouldn't feel obligated to take care of Brenda.
Bobbie: Let's get a drink.
Maxie: Whoever you are, I guess you know my mom.
Alcazar: Your daughter's an excellent dancer. Would you care to be next?
Felicia: You stay away from my daughters. I will protect them at any cost. Come on, let's go.
Courtney: I think I killed him. He came after me and -- and then -- and he wouldn't stop and then I fired and --
Jason: It's ok. Come here. Come here.
Courtney: Oh, god. Oh, my god.
Jason: It's ok. It's ok. Everything's going to be all right.
Lucky: Elizabeth told us to meet her here. She'll come here as soon as she thinks it's safe.
Luke: All right. When she gets here, the two of you are going back to Port Charles and forget you ever found me because you didn't. I'm going to do the time as the man I am now, Hiram Poe.
Lucky: Well, while you're at it, why don't you just order me to forget that I'm your son? Or forget that I have a little sister who needs you? Why don't I just follow your example and self-destruct and just act like nobody else will get hurt!
Luke: Why do you think I went away?
Lucky: I don't know. Why did you?
Luke: Because I'm done, Lucky. I'm done. I got no more plans, I got no more angles. And I sure as hell ain't got it in me anymore to be a father. I never did. I only tried to be a parent for Laura. Hell, most of what I did was for her. And now she's gone, man. She's gone. She's in a world that she made that I can't follow her into. And I got no interest in building a life without her. Do you understand? I'm cutting the ties. And that means with you, too, son.
Elizabeth: Oh, thank god. Let's go. They're talking about roadblocks --
warden: We won't need those after all. You're all under arrest.
Elizabeth: I'm sorry.
Warden: But I guess you knew that, didn't you, Mr. Spencer?
Warden: When Waylon and Beauregard here radioed in about an escape, an interesting thing happened. Even though they saw two fugitives run, there was only one prisoner missing. That was you. Except it turns out you're not Hiram Poe. I ran a fingerprint check on you. And it says you are one Lucas Lorenzo Spencer, of Port Charles, new York, an escaped convict who's supposed to be serving a life sentence for murder. Which means helping you to escape is a felony offense. I'm sending you all back to port Charles. Let the Yankees deal with you.
Luke: Well, you got what you wanted. I'm going back.
Jason: It's ok. Come on, come on, sit down. Ok? Can you tell me what happened? And where the hell is A.J. Right now?
Courtney: He's at the hospital benefit Halloween party. We went together, but he went to get me something to drink. And somebody started whispering "Daisy, I'm watching you," but I couldn't tell who it was, because there was a crowd, and everybody was wearing masks.
Jason: So you came home alone? Was the door locked when you got here?
Jason: Ok. Was Coleman inside or outside?
Courtney: He was inside. I came in, I sat on the couch, and -- and then I heard something behind me, and I -- I turned, and he was -- he was coming out of my bedroom, towards me, wearing that mask. And then he grabbed me, and we fought.
Jason: When did you get the gun?
Courtney: After he grabbed me. I -- I -- I hit him, and he fell. And then I was able to get in the kitchen, where I keep the gun that you gave me. He was still -- he was still coming towards me, so I shot him, and I just kept firing until he fell.
Jason: Ok. It's ok.
Jason: He's still alive. Did he have the mask on when you shot him?
Courtney: Yeah. I pulled it off afterwards.
Jason: Ok. Have you called anybody else?
Courtney: No, only you.
Jason: All right, good. Now, this is what we're going to do. You're going to call 911, ok? You're going to tell them that you shot an intruder, and then we're going to wait for the cops. And when they get there, I'm just going to -- I'm going to be with you every step of the way, Courtney.
Courtney: No, Jason -- Jason, I shot Coleman with a gun that you gave me.
Jason: It's ok. I'll --
Courtney: What if they press charges against you?
Jason: Trust me, I will take care of it, ok? We just need to call the cops as soon as possible so they don't accuse us of covering anything up. Ok?
Man: [Distorted voice] I'm watching you, Daisy.
Jason: Who was it?
Courtney: My god. My god, it was him!
Jason: Who was it? Who?
Courtney: It was him! It was -- it was the -- the real stalker! I -- oh, my god, I shot Coleman! I shot the wrong man! God.
Jax: Hey, shouldn't you be socializing in the name of charity?
Skye: I've done my duty. Now it's time for a little fun. Besides, you have been laying here, all cooped up on Halloween. And you deserve a celebration of your own. Here we go.
Jax: You're very mysterious.
Skye: I'm just in the mood for our little party.
Jax: You know, I don't think I'm quite ready for this yet.
Skye: Oh. All right. I brought you some candy. I thought you like candy.
Skye: Look. Mmm. Mmm. Bitter chocolate. You want a taste?
Jax: It's delicious.
Skye: Well, it's my impression that you're ready for anything, but if you think that I'm going to hurt you, then --
Jax: Well, I'll just make sure that I yell at the first signs of pain.
Monica: Excuse me, Sonny. Were you as surprised as we were at Brenda and Jason's elopement?
Sonny: I didn't see it coming.
Monica: Because we all love Brenda. But she is suffering from a terminal mental illness, and Jason has -- has taken it upon himself to nurse her through this.
Sonny: That was his decision.
Monica: Or was it yours, Sonny? You can't take care of Brenda because you're married to Carly. So did you tell Jason that he had to go through hell watching Brenda die just because you can't?
Sonny: Monica, excuse me, ok?
Monica: No, I mean it, Sonny.
Sonny: Get your hands off my wife!
Carly: Sonny, what's wrong?
Sonny: You come near my family again, I'll kill you.
[Knock on door]
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Lucky: My dad's just so determined on trashing his life, I don't think there's anything we can do to stop him.
Courtney: What if I killed an innocent man, Jason?
Jason: It was self-defense, Courtney. This guy was in --
Sonny: Where's Alcazar?
Man: I just came to the party.
Sonny: Dressed in the exact same outfit? You are lying to me.
