>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Alexis: You're on this tape. So is Laura, confessing to the murder of Rick Webber. Release Luke or I will release this.

Courtney: What if Coleman's not the stalker?

Jason: Well, hopefully Coleman pulls through. Maybe he can give us some answers.

Sonny: What would you want if you weren't dying?

Nurse: The test came back negative.

Skye: That means Brenda isn't dying.

[Coleman groans]

Taggert: What do you think you're doing?

Courtney: Why isn't A.J. here yet? I know he's furious with me. I can't even blame him. Why didn't I just tell him that I had the gun? I mean, my husband's brother gives me a gun. I should at least mention it.

Jason: Don't -- like I said, don't worry about the gun. It's registered, ok? It was self-defense, Courtney.

Courtney: But hiding it in pots and pans? How stupid is that?

Jason: That's not stupid. You didn't want anybody to find it.

Courtney: God, I was -- I was afraid that he'd take it away from me, and I didn't want him to. It made me feel safe. It's obvious he's furious with me.

Jason: No, A.J. is angry with me, not you.

Courtney: What are you saying? He's not here because you are?

Andy: You'll need to sign all the copies of your statement.

Jason: Well, make sure you read through that before you sign it.

Andy: The voice of experience.

Jason: I'll take you home when you're finished.

Courtney: Yeah. A.J. will love that. Thanks, but I'm going to go to the hospital.

Andy: That's not such a good idea, Ms. Quartermaine.

Courtney: No, I want to find out what Coleman has to say.

Luke: Get that woman who calls herself my attorney in here.

Mac: Alexis is meeting with the D.A.

Luke: She cutting a deal?

Mac: You got me.

Luke: Well, you have to stop the meeting, Mac! Get her! I want to talk to her!

Mac: Calm down, will you, Luke?

Luke: Go to Alexis and tell her this is an emergency! I have to see her now!

Mac: Why? It's not like you're going anywhere.

Luke: Nikolas, you got to go crash that meeting.

Nikolas: It's a bad idea, Luke, and you know it.

Luke: No, you get that tape away from Alexis.

Nikolas: Mom would not want me to let you go to --

Luke: How the hell do you know what Laura would want? You're wasting time! You've got to stop that meeting! Now, go get that tape!

Laura's voice: I did it. I -- I killed my own father.

Scott: Turn -- turn it off.

Alexis: All right. All right. You afraid someone's going to hear you?

Scott: The tape was obtained illegally.

Alexis: So you admit that you withheld evidence --

Scott: I'm not admitting anything now.

Alexis: Stop posturing. I repeat -- release Luke or I release this to the press, proving that you framed an innocent man.

Scott: A little news flash for you -- if Luke walks, I lose the race.

Alexis: If I go public, you get disbarred. You may even end up in Sing Sing if I decide to press charges as district attorney.

Scott: Listen -- when Laura made that tape, she was sick, she was confused, she was out of her mind, whereas Luke was clear as a bell. They both confessed to killing Rick Webber, so I went with Luke because --

Alexis: All right, you know what? If you're going to talk to me about fair trial and due process, forget about it. Listen, you know what? Maybe you're right. It's a brief confession. Maybe no one will buy it. So why don't we just release it to the press?

Scott: All right. I'll let Spencer go.

Alexis: When?

Scott: When you pull out of the race.

Skye: Hmm. Tonight was a medical breakthrough. Maybe we should alert your doctors.

Jax: I never kiss and tell.

Skye: Just think how many lives we'd save if everyone could have this therapy.

Jax: And tonight was just the beginning.

Skye: Of a very long course of treatment.

Jax: A lifetime.

Skye: You know, Jax, even though you pushed me away --

Jax: Skye, I made a serious mistake when I did that.

Skye: I knew you needed me.

Jax: I always will.

Brenda: I don't want to play make-believe.

Sonny: You never think about what you'd do if you were going to live?

Brenda: No, I don't. I mean, what's the point of doing that? I'm dying. So what?

Sonny: No, no, no, no. You're already dead.

Carly: You ordered my husband's murder. Why should I believe a word you say?

Alcazar: Because I'm a magician.

Carly: You know what? You're taking this Halloween thing a bit far, don't you think?

Alcazar: I can make Brenda disappear.

Carly: Well, you haven't so far.

Alcazar: All I need is a clever assistant.

Carly: Oh. And that would be me.

Alcazar: That's right. Now you see Brenda, now you don't. Who else can give you that? Jason? Your husband?

Carly: Just tell me what you want.

Sonny: I'm dying. Jason's dying. Even Alcazar's dying.

Brenda: Oh, god, you're so philosophical these days.

Sonny: Life is a game with one rule -- nobody gets out alive.

Brenda: Especially if they're around you.

Sonny: You ever think about what you could have done in the past four years? I mean, you know, you gave up. You hung out with Alcazar on that yacht. Four years -- that's -- that's a college degree, a start to a good marriage. You could have set the world on fire.

Brenda: I still can.

Sonny: That's the Brenda I know.

Brenda: You don't know me.

Sonny: Then who does? Alcazar? Jax?

Brenda: Jax knows me on a deeper level than you'll ever understand.

Sonny: Yeah?

Brenda: Yeah, that's right.

Sonny: How deep is that?

Brenda: Get out!

Sonny: What?

Brenda: No, don't tell me what I need.

Sonny: I'll --

Brenda: Get out!

Sonny: I'm going.

Brenda: Good.

Sonny: Take it easy.

Brenda: Leave. Go and tell your wife what to do.

Sonny: I'm going to do that, ok?

Brenda: Yeah, well, great. I don't really care.

Sonny: All right.

Brenda: I haven't cared for a long time.

Sonny: I'm leaving.

Brenda: You know, if I did have a future, just to let you know --

Sonny: Yes? Yes?

Brenda: I wouldn't spend two seconds of it with you.

Sonny: You've been great to talk to.

Brenda: Yeah, thank you. I'd go rescue Jax --

Sonny: Jax?

Brenda: From that lying idiot that he married.

Alcazar: My private jet is waiting. The flight plan has been filed. I'm taking Brenda to Paris. You'll never have to see her again.

Carly: Just tell me what you want.

Alcazar: All you have to do is get Brenda on that plane.

Carly: Oh, as in dragging her by her hair?

Alcazar: It's not quite that simple.

Carly: Oh, don't be so sure.

Alcazar: Brenda has to want to go. Now, logic is telling her to go now, tonight.

Carly: Yeah, well, that works for me.

Alcazar: Brenda's heart rules, and her heart is telling her to stay here with Jax or with your husband. That's why I need your help.

Carly: You know, Brenda and I aren't exactly close.

Alcazar: Doesn't matter.

Carly: Why is she going to listen to me?

Alcazar: Because you're both in love with Sonny. That gives you and Brenda a connection.

Carly: Do you have any idea how bizarre this sounds?

Alcazar: It's in your best interest to have her go with me.

Carly: Well, what do you want me to do? You want me to mess with her mind?

Alcazar: You know what she wants. Use that. If kindness works, be kind. If it doesn't, be brutal. Make Brenda never want to see Port Charles again.

Carly: Yeah, well, I could do that.

Alcazar: And if you have to, remind her that she's sick and she's running out of time. Tell her there's nothing here for her in Port Charles.

Carly: You know, I can't -- I can't promise you anything.

Alcazar: Your husband just left you to be with Brenda. You want to spend the rest of your life like that, abandoned, on your own? I'm sure Sonny loves you, but he will always choose Brenda. Can't help himself, and you can't change that. But you can make Brenda disappear with my help. You have a problem with that?

Carly: No. No problem.

Alexis: I have no intention of dropping out of the race for district attorney, especially since I've already almost won it.

Scott: Don't be so sure.

Alexis: Why would I even consider dropping out of the race?

Scott: Look, like it or not, Luke confessed to killing Webber. Now, if you go public with Laura's confession, he's just going to say it's a fake. He'll find a reason to protect Laura, to prove that she's innocent. You may win the election, but Spencer will spend the rest of his life in jail, where he belongs. Now, you know, grow up.

Alexis: "Grow up"? All right, if growing up means suppressing evidence or deliberately misrepresenting the facts -- or, better yet, abusing the criminal justice system -- I'd rather not.

Scott: Well, that's my idea of growing up.

Alexis: Not to me.

Scott: Then go ahead, win the election. Hand Luke his freedom. But he'll never accept it at Laura's expense, and you're not flexible enough to exonerate Luke without incriminating Laura.

Alexis: Meaning you are?

Scott: Well, I am willing to cut corners, reshape the facts to reflect the truth.

Alexis: You making a deal with me?

Scott: Well, you know, call it what you want, but I'm all Spencer's got, believe me. So, what's more important, winning the election or freeing an innocent man?

Nikolas: I can't force Alexis to suppress the tape. I can't do that.

Luke: Why not? Why not? You gave her the tape.

Nikolas: Mom confessed to killing Rick Webber, Luke.

Luke: And do you want that on the public record?

Nikolas: Hiding the truth made Mom sick.

Luke: Have you even thought about this at all? Huh?

Nikolas: Yeah, I have.

Luke: Then you know that there'll be a trial, that she won't stay in London. They'll bring her back here.

Nikolas: She is way too sick to go on trial, Luke.

Luke: Well, that doesn't mean she won't be found guilty and spend the rest of her life in the back of some prison for the criminally insane. She won't get the help she needs. She'll die, Nikolas!

Nikolas: No, no, she won't. Not necessarily, no.

Luke: Then she'll spend the rest of her life in a padded cell.

Nikolas: Let me tell you something, Luke! I'm trying to help her, not destroy her!

Luke: This is kind of a tradition, isn't it? Cassadine tradition -- keeping Laura under lock and key?

Nikolas: You know what? You know what? Maybe she'd be getting better right now if you hadn't gone after her, if you hadn't kept her away from the medication she needs, Luke.

Luke: Ok, I'm wrong and you're right. Now, get the tape.

Nikolas: That tape does not mean she will end up in jail.

Luke: Get Lucky. I want to talk to my son.

Nikolas: We all want the same thing, Luke. We do. Why --

Luke: Just get out of my face and get Lucky!

Courtney: That's the last statement.

Andy: You're free to go.

Jason: I'll take you to the hospital.

Courtney: Look, Jason, I know I always call you when I'm in trouble and you're always there to help me, but I can't keep leaning on you. I have to start leaning on my husband.

Jason: Then you're going to take the bus to the hospital? They don't run too often this late at night. Seriously, do you need a ride?

Courtney: Thanks. I'd like that.

Taggert: You know it's against the law to tamper with evidence, right?

A.J.: Is that what I'm doing?

Taggert: That's what it looks like to me.

A.J.: What evidence?

Taggert: That evidence.

A.J.: Oh, you mean the guy who did it?

Taggert: Yeah, he's a suspect, but by no means the only one. What are you doing here, A.J.?

A.J.: Where the hell were you, Taggert?

Taggert: Excuse me?

A.J.: When my wife and I came to you for help, where were you? Instead, you blamed her. You made excuses. Even after the stalker attacked me, did you help? No. So I have every right to confront this guy. And why haven't you already interviewed him?

Taggert: Nothing Coleman tells you will stand up in court.

A.J.: I have a right to confront this guy.

Taggert: What about the accomplice, huh? What if he should happen to show up -- you know, the guy who called your wife after she shot Coleman?

A.J.: I'll take them both on.

A.J.: All right, Taggert, do most stalkers work with a partner?

Taggert: It happens.

A.J.: Are you expecting the accomplice to show up here?

Taggert: I'm keeping an open mind.

A.J.: So, tell me, do you ever catch one but not the other?

Courtney: A.J. I was so worried about you. I thought you were going to come straight to the police department.

A.J.: I was, I was. I wanted to deal with Coleman.

Courtney: I am so glad to see you.

A.J.: Me, too. You know what? You must be exhausted. Let's get you home, all right?

Courtney: I'm not leaving until Coleman wakes up and tells me what's going on.

A.J.: I'm just glad you're not hurt. Come on. It's over. Let's go.

Courtney: No. Not until Coleman wakes up.

A.J.: He may not wake up for hours.

Courtney: I need to ask him, "why me?"

Jason: You know Coleman's not in this alone.

Taggert: Thanks for the tip. I never would have figured that out.

Officer: Lieutenant? We traced the call to an apartment above Jake's. This was attached to a timer.

Man's voice: I'm watching you, Daisy.

Courtney: That's him. That's the guy who called me.

Man's voice: I'm watching you, Daisy.

A.J.: Will you shut that thing off?

Taggert: It's a tape on a timer.

Courtney: That's the second caller, a tape?

A.J.: I don't believe this guy.

Courtney: Wake up! Look at me! It was you all along, wasn't it? The calls, the cameras, the daisies on the bed -- how could you do this to me? Why?

Coleman: It's not me. It's A.J. A.J.

Alexis: What's wrong? What happened?

Nikolas: I made a mistake, Alexis -- you know, wanting to go public with that tape. There's no reason anyone should know that -- that mom confessed to killing Rick.

Alexis: Luke got to you, didn't he?

Nikolas: I need you -- I need you to give me the tape back.

Lucky: Hey. Nikolas called. I got here as soon as I could.

Luke: Ok. Your mother's in serious trouble. You have to help her.

Lucky: Mom's worse? What did the doctors say?

Luke: We don't have a lot of time, so just -- just pay attention. Scott tricked Laura into taking the blame for killing Rick. He's got her confession on tape.

Lucky: Oh. So that's why you confessed.

Luke: Alexis has the tape now because Nikolas stole it and gave it to her, and she's going public with it.

Lucky: Of course, to prove your innocence.

Luke: You have to get that tape and destroy it.

Lucky: Mom did it, didn't she?

Luke: Lucky, get the tape as quickly as possible and destroy it.

Lucky: No.

Luke: You don't get to say no to me!

Lucky: I'm going to try to help Mom. I will. But for now, I'm protecting you.

Jax: I'm fine. Forget the medication.

Nurse: Like I forgot your visitor?

Jax: Can't a man enjoy an evening with his wife?

Nurse: If you don't take your medication, I'll have to call a doctor.

Jax: Oh, you drive a hard bargain.

Alcazar: Isn't it past your bedtime?

Jax: No, not at all.

Alcazar: I'd come back in the morning, but I've already waited too long.

Jax: Well, you know, some things are worth waiting for -- like my plans for you when I get out of here.

Alcazar: Why wait? Why not come to terms tonight?

Jax: About what?

Alcazar: About Brenda, the woman we both love. Oh -- and the complication of your wife.

Brenda: Jeez.

Skye: Regarding your so-called rescue of Jax, get over it. He's taken now by the so-called "lying idiot" he only married because you were gone. And I will do whatever it takes to keep him.

Brenda: Finally, the real Skye Quartermaine.

Skye: Skye Quartermaine Jacks. I know you're losing it a little, but it might be best if you try and remember that.

Brenda: So, now, what exactly happened to the sweet little wife who only wanted what's best?

Skye: Oh, I still do -- what's best for me. Are you able to follow any of that?

Brenda: Well, I'm not an idiot --

Skye: Not yet, but you will be.

Brenda: See, now, you knew that I knew you were putting on an act this whole time, right?

Skye: Oh, how awfully perceptive of you, considering the circumstances.

Brenda: You heard me yelling at Sonny.

Skye: You called me a lying idiot.

Brenda: I did.

Skye: Well, at least you're still coherent.

Brenda: You just get meaner and meaner the more you talk.

Skye: Thank you.

Brenda: You know, I might have to fistfight you.

Skye: Ooh. Good thing I came just from the gym. No, but, seriously, what are you planning on fighting with, Brenda, especially after tonight?

Brenda: See, as usual, I have no idea what you're talking about.

Skye: Well, you're just dying to know. No, wait. Fine. I will make this as clear for you as I possibly can, so listen very carefully. Jax and I made love tonight, and it was fabulous.

Alcazar: Are you planning to leave your wife? Can you take care of Brenda? You going to give her a commitment?

Jax: You're completely obsessed with her, aren't you?

Alcazar: Can you make the time she has left worth living?

Jax: You know, you should be more worried about your own life.

Alcazar: I'll take that as a no.

Jax: Because your life is more at risk than Brenda's at the moment.

Alcazar: You know, Brenda believes you're a kind, generous man. If you are, why don't you set her free?

Jax: Oh, I intend to -- from you, that is. Don't squander your own precious time, Mr. Alcazar, because when I'm released, I'm going to find you and I'll kill you.

Alcazar: Why wait? Why not kill me now?

Jax: That's a good idea. Why didn't I think of it sooner?

Sonny: How was the party?

Carly: Well, you know, I decided to change my costume because I got bored with it. I decided to change into leather pants, shave my head.

Sonny: What?

Carly: Nothing. Did you find Brenda?

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: Was she in trouble?

Sonny: She's been in trouble ever since she woke up on that yacht. Alcazar's been playing with her mind for four years, and he's at it again.

Carly: But you stopped him?

Sonny: For tonight. Here you go.

Carly: Thank you.

Sonny: How was the party, really?

Carly: Well, Alan and Monica think that Jason and Brenda are passionately in love and that she's going to lure him back into the family. Where the hell is he, anyway?

Sonny: That's a good question.

Carly: Yeah, well, so much for him looking out for Brenda.

Sonny: I'll speak with Jason.

Carly: Sonny, it's not going to matter.

Sonny: What do you mean?

Carly: Really, it won't, because you know what? Brenda's always going to need you, no matter what, and Edward thinks you're already sleeping with her.

Sonny: That -- he told you that at the --

Carly: Yeah, he did. I ignored him, but --

Sonny: I should have never left you there. I'm sorry.

Carly: You know what? It's ok. It's fine. Sonny -- do you think that if two women have loved the same man and love him, do you think they're connected somehow? Like one woman can control the other?

Sonny: Where is this coming from?

Carly: Alcazar.

Sonny: What do you mean -- you spoke to Alcazar?

Carly: He was waiting for me outside the club tonight.

Sonny: He was waiting -- he set me up? What did he do? What did he do?

Carly: It's ok. I'm ok. I'm really fine --

Sonny: No, I'm just -- how come you didn't call me or Max?

Carly: Because you know what?

Sonny: Where was Max?

Carly: It wasn't a big deal. I came --

Sonny: No -- no, it is a big deal because now Alcazar knows he can get to my wife by using Brenda. That -- that's what this was about tonight. Tell -- I want to know exactly -- exact words, what did he say?

Carly: Alcazar wants me to manipulate Brenda so he can take her away.

Alexis: Laura's in no shape to stand trial. She will never get near a courtroom, I promise.

Nikolas: Can she stay at the institute in London? Can you guarantee she'll get the help she needs?

Alexis: I think we can -- we can try to make that happen.

Nikolas: You think, but you can't say for sure?

Alexis: I think that we need to trust the system in this case.

Nikolas: Trust the system even when it hurts my mother? Right? She has no idea where she is. She's staring at a wall. If that tape goes public, she will never get better, Alexis.

Alexis: You're asking me to suppress evidence, Nikolas.

Nikolas: Yes, yes.

Alexis: I'm an officer of the court.

Nikolas: And that means more to you than family, right?

Alexis: Once we get this out into the open, we will deal with the complications --

Nikolas: Compli-- that's what my mother is to you, a complication? Really? Why can't you admit this, Alexis, that this tape will guarantee that you win this election and that's the only thing that matters to you -- your precious career, certainly not your own baby and certainly not me.

Luke: Laura wouldn't even be where she is now if I hadn't let her down.

Lucky: You didn't.

Luke: There still is one thing that I can do for her.

Lucky: How is spending the rest of your life in prison going to help anybody?

Luke: Will you just forget about me? Your mother's got a chance. Don't take this chance away from her.

Lucky: You know, Mom may never come back to us no matter what I do!

Luke: Didn't I teach you any better than this? Women and children in the lifeboats first, if they're family and you like them.

Lucky: You know, Dad, you also taught me something else. You taught me how to trust my gut.

Luke: So, what, your gut's telling you to betray your mother?

Lucky: No. My gut's telling me not to turn my back on my father.

Luke: Your father is long gone.

Lucky: I guess that makes me the Spencer in charge, then. And I'm not going to sit here while you trash your life.

Courtney: How could you blame my husband for this? Why would A.J. Want to stalk me?

Coleman: It's true.

Courtney: You blackmailed me into stripping, you followed me around, you broke into my house, kept me terrified for weeks, and now you're blaming my husband? Do you really expect anyone to believe any of this?

Taggert: So, are you saying that A.J. Quartermaine was involved with stalking his own wife?

Coleman: Yes.

Taggert: In what manner?

Coleman: Money.

Taggert: A.J. paid you?

A.J.: Stop putting words in his mouth.

Coleman: Yes.

Taggert: Did A.J. Quartermaine pay you to stalk his own wife?

Coleman: Yes.

Taggert: How much?

Coleman: Quar-- quarter million.

Courtney: That's ridiculous!

Taggert: Please. Did A.J. pay you $250,000 to stalk his wife?

Coleman: Yes.

A.J.: You don't believe this guy. Come on.

Coleman: A.J. recorded the voice. He set up the cameras, the schedule.

A.J.: Oh, so I -- I was -- I had my wife harassed according to a schedule?

Coleman: Tonight was the big finish. She'd be alone. I'd break in, scare her. I just didn't count on the gun.

A.J.: You don't believe this guy, do you? I mean, come on.

Taggert: A.J. -- Can you give me a reason why A.J. would do this?

Coleman: To rescue Courtney. To be a hero to his wife.

A.J.: The guy's lying, ok? He harassed my wife for months. He's probably got a rap sheet a mile long, man.

Courtney: Just because he's been arrested doesn't mean that he's lying.

A.J.: Do you believe him?

Taggert: I can't rule out Coleman's statement.

A.J.: I don't need this. I really don't.

Courtney: A.J., wait.

A.J.: Why? Why, so you guys can all serve as judge and jury? Why waste my breath? Really? Never mind where I came up with 250 grand. I was disinherited, remember? And it was worth it to marry you, and I would do it all over again. But I drive a forklift, ok? Take me the next 20 years to come up with $250,000. Not to mention that I would never do anything to deliberately hurt you ever. It doesn't matter, though. You don't believe me, so go on, take me in. Go on. I'm ready.

Taggert: You're not under arrest. But I will be in touch.

A.J.: Bet you're loving this, right, Jase? Hmm? Just the idea of me being a criminal.

Jason: Well, you did burn down my warehouse and the Oasis, A.J.

A.J.: Do you think I'm a criminal, too?

Courtney: We've all done things that we'd like to change.

A.J.: Do you honestly think that I would do anything to deliberately hurt you?

Courtney: No.

Nurse: Hey! What is going on here?

Jax: Told you to give it up. My friend here thinks he could beat me at arm-wrestling. Hey, where you going? Admit it. You can't win. It was lucky I took my medication. Otherwise I probably would have thrown the poor fellow out the window.

Nurse: You want to explain what I just walked in on?

Jax: No, not particularly.

Brenda: Well, that's great, Skye. Good to know. You know, last time I saw you in bed with Jax, you had all of your clothes on. So, I'm sorry, just explain this to me. How do you working girls do that? You just hike your skirt up, right?

Skye: Gee, Brenda, I guess you'd know better than anyone. But, seriously, either way works for me.

Brenda: You're so desperate, it's really embarrassing. And you're also very creative, I have to say, using sex to get a man. Original.

Skye: Oh, god. Who's the idiot? Not just any man, Brenda. My husband. Are you following this? He's made a commitment to me.

Brenda: Well, that's great. You know, he made a commitment to me a long time before anyone ever even heard of you. I wonder if I told him that I wanted him back -- I wonder what he'd do.

Skye: You blew it. You couldn't trust Jax to take care of you.

Brenda: Oh, is that what happened?

Skye: You let him go.

Brenda: Right.

Skye: Now he's made promises to me. And you know better than anyone in the whole world, Brenda, Jax never breaks his word.

Brenda: Ok. Bye-bye.

Brenda: Hello? Hi. Can I get a cab? Harbor view towers to General Hospital.

Minister: "Take thee, Lucas Lorenzo Spencer --"

Laura: Take thee, Lucas Lorenzo Spencer --

minister: "To be my lawful wedded husband."

Laura: To be my lawful wedded husband. To have and to hold from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish until death do us part.

Luke's voice: I, Luke, take my Laura for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health till death do us part. That is my solemn vow.

A.J.: Thank you. I don't know what I would do if you didn't believe me on this one.

Courtney: I love you, A.J. But it's more than that. I trust you.

A.J.: I can't tell you how much that means to me.

Courtney: You walked out on your family for me. You're driving a forklift when you could be running some big corporation, all for me.

A.J.: I don't regret any of the choices I've made.

Courtney: Neither do I. We have real love and a real marriage, and that is so rare.

Coleman: I'm telling the truth. Believe Quartermaine if you want to. You don't, do you? You know the guy, how insecure he is with his wife. So weak.

Luke: Why in the hell did you keep that tape?

Scott: If you want the tape suppressed, you better hope Alexis doesn't win the election.

Luke: Why did you even get a confession out of Laura in the first place? Power? You just wanted something else to hold over her head?

Scott: You confessed, didn't you?

Luke: Oh, I see. That was your plan all along.

Scott: Don't worry about me. Worry about Alexis. She's not as good at hiding things as I am. You know, she believes in truth, justice.

Lucky: I want to let the truth come out. Go with the tape. We can deal.

Alexis:  Your father will never forgive me.

Lucky: Actually, he's probably going to hate both of us forever, but I'll know that I did everything I could to keep my father out of prison.

Alexis: It may not come to that.

Sonny: Alcazar used Brenda to draw me away. Anything could have happened. I should not have left you there. That was my fault.

Carly: Ok, you know what? And then you would have worried about Brenda all night and we would be a lot worse off than we are right now --

Sonny: He should leave my wife out of this. That's -- it's not you --

Carly: Ok, Sonny -- Sonny, every single fiber of my being was telling me to lie to you tonight, ok? I didn't want to tell you about Alcazar. I wanted to just get Brenda out of town. Sweetie, when I lie to you, it leads me so far away from you, and I don't want to be there. I want to be with you. I want to be with you so much more than I want Brenda gone.

Sonny: You did good. Ok?

Carly: Thanks.

Skye: Great. I heard you were here. I'm glad I caught you.

Alcazar: You had time to think?

Skye: Take Brenda away. Just get her out of my life. I will do anything -- anything at all to help.

Alcazar: I appreciate your change of heart.

Skye: You just tell me what I have to do.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Courtney: You believe Coleman, don't you? You think that A.J. paid him to stalk me.

Alexis: I remove my name from the ballot. I will no longer be running for the office of district attorney.

Jax: I'm sorry this happened to us.

Brenda: Me, too.

Skye: How touching.
