>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Courtney: I want to be with my husband, and you want to be in Manhattan. Then that's where I want to be, too.

Guard: Ponga sus manos arriba!

Dr. Reinmar: Brenda Barrett -- her illness is a lie.

Skye: I found out that Brenda isn't really dying.

Alcazar: Come get Brenda and I off this sandbox. You don't have to worry about Corinthos. He won't be leaving the island alive.

Elizabeth: Hey. What happened here?

Courtney: Lucky's father. He hit lt. Taggert and was arrested.

Elizabeth: Do you have any idea if Lucky knows?

Courtney: Well, I called Bobbie, and she said that she'd handle it. I assumed she called him.

Elizabeth: Oh, god. Luke's a mess.

Courtney: Yeah, I got that impression.

Elizabeth: Hey, I wanted to thank you again for covering my shifts while I was out looking for him. I promise you I will pay you back.

Courtney: Thanks, but I won't need it. A.J. and I are moving to Manhattan.

Elizabeth: When?

Courtney: Tomorrow. Yeah, A.J. got this great job.

Elizabeth: Wow. Wow, that's huge. Are you excited?

Courtney: Nervous. I -- I don't know. I felt like I was just starting to put down roots here, and -- anyway, it's a great opportunity for A.J., and I want what's best for him. I guess it's kind of what you were doing with Lucky, you know, helping him find his father.

Elizabeth: Well, yes, I was helping Lucky, but only as a friend. We're not in love anymore.

Courtney: Does Jason know that?

Elizabeth: Why would that matter?

Courtney: Maybe it's one of the reasons he married Brenda, because you took off with Lucky.

Elizabeth: Wait a minute. Jason married Brenda Barrett?

Jax: Brenda Barrett isn't dying?

Dr. Reinmar: That is correct.

Jax: You said her illness was a lie. Whose lie?

Dr. Reinmar: Ms. Barrett was predisposed to believe she had the same disease that caused her mother's insanity and drove her to suicide.

Jax: Yes, yes, I know that. Doctor, may I remind you that your future's at stake here. You can go back to Switzerland in ruins or you can go back with a sizable donation from me. Now, which is it going to be? Why lie about Brenda Barrett dying?

Dr. Reinmar: I was encouraged to allow Ms. Barrett to continue believing what she thought.

Jax: You were bribed by Luis Alcazar.

Dr. Reinmar: Yes, but he's not the person you think. Luis Alcazar murders people --

Jax: I don't care about your problems with Luis Alcazar, doctor. Now, the medication that Brenda's taking, that she's been taking for the last four years -- is it a placebo? Is it supposed to give her symptoms?

Dr. Reinmar: It is not the drug she believes, but it can't harm her.

Jax: On October 25, an American woman came to your clinic by the name of Antoinette Quartermaine. Now, she was there for treatment, but she wasn't sick. Was she there to get information about Brenda Barrett?

Dr. Reinmar: I believe so.

Jax: Does she know that Brenda's perfectly healthy?

Skye: Brenda's perfectly healthy. I went to the clinic in Switzerland where she's being "treated." I convinced a nurse to show me a file. Turns out the test for the terminal illness that she supposedly inherited from her mother came back negative.

A.J.: So the doctor's been lying to her?

Skye: Alcazar's been bribing him because he knows as soon as Brenda found out she was healthy, she'd run straight back to Jax. And I'm sure he'd just welcome her back with open arms. Brenda is the great love of Jax's life. He'll take her back for sure.

Alcazar: When you arrive, I want you to isolate and eliminate Corinthos. I don't want Brenda anywhere --

[Sonny grunts]

Carly: All right, there is nothing, nothing out there. Nothing except for some nasty-looking barbed wire. You know what? No one is going to come and rescue us. That is for sure. Jason? Jason, what if the warden doesn't take your offer?

Jason: Carly, you shouldn't even be here in the first place.

Carly: No, nor should you, because it's called wrongful imprisonment.

Jason: No, I should have turned that jet around the minute I found you and taken you home.

Carly: Jason, Jason, we both know that I would have been on the first commercial plane out here and we would have been in the same situation, except I would have been alone, I would have been terrified, so -- you know what? It's so much better this way because we're together, at least, and you don't have to come and search for me.

Jason: I'm going to get you out of this. I don't know how, but I will.

Carly: I know. I know. You know, you've never, no matter how horrible a situation got, let me down. You've always come through. I'm going to come through for you, too, Jason. I intend to, ok? You, that warden -- he probably decided to take the offer the minute it came out of your mouth. He's just -- he wants to make us wait.

Jason: No. The warden wants to get the money first and make sure Alcazar doesn't find out.

Carly: Yeah.

[Guitar plays]

Carly: What's that? Someone's in that next cell, huh? Hey, guard? Senor?

Jason: Senor?

Carly: Excuse me. What -- what's going on? What is that music?

Jason: Cancion.

Guard: Se llama los perdios te la toca a ti. Quiere decir que estas sentenciado a muerte.

Carly: What -- what was that? What the hell did he say?

Jason: He said the song is called "the lost ones" and the prisoner's playing it for us.

Carly: Why?

Jason: Because the warden turned us down. He's going to have us executed.

Carly: Ok. Ok, listen -- listen up! Listen here, ok? You know what? You get no money from us unless we are alive. Warden, warden, warden, listen to me. My husband, he will pay lots of money. He will pay $2 million for our release.

Warden: Your husband is a stranger. Luis Alcazar's a powerful friend and a deadly enemy. So you have to die.

Operator: Esta bien. Espere que tratare de rastrear las senales de su telefono.

Sonny: Alo? Alo?

Operator: Esto puede tomar unos minutos. Cuantos --

Sonny: Ok, perate, perate. Tamo perdido esta -- esta --

operator: Le dije que seguir la pista puede tomar unos minutos.

Sonny: Tamo perdido --

[phone beeps]

Sonny: Damn it!

Brenda: What? What?

Sonny: The battery went dead.

Brenda: Well, did you get to tell them enough? I mean, you think they're going to show up here still?

Sonny: Well, you know, I don't know. I mean, it's a matter of who shows up here first.

Brenda: Right. Luis' guys are coming, too.

Sonny: Well, he probably told his people the exact coordinates, and, you know, they got a nice head start.

Elizabeth: So this doesn't make any sense. Why would Jason marry Brenda? I mean, when she disappeared, she was in love with Jax.

Courtney: Yeah, it seemed kind of bizarre to me, too, when I first heard, but then Jason explained --

Elizabeth: Well, what did he say?

Courtney: Did you know that Brenda's dying?

Elizabeth: Yeah. She inherited some disease from her mother.

Courtney: Yeah, well, Brenda needs someone to take care of her when she can't take care of herself. I guess Jason just felt sorry for her. I mean, she doesn't really have anybody else. Jax married Skye, and I think Jason felt obligated to help.

Elizabeth: I know Jason would do just about anything for the people he cares about, but to marry someone? I mean, even for him, isn't that a little extreme?

Courtney: I don't know. It was Brenda's idea. They flew to Las Vegas.

Elizabeth: Las Vegas? God, I can't picture Jason eloping to Las Vegas. Wait a minute. What am I saying? I can't picture Jason eloping, period. And especially not with Brenda. I don't -- I don't know if you know this, but your brother left her at the altar. I know, because I snuck into their wedding and I saw it. Brenda was, like, insanely in love with Sonny, and Jason knows all this. Why would he choose to put himself in the middle of that?

Courtney: You know, I really think that this is about Jason helping Brenda because she's sick. He didn't even make it sound like a real marriage.

Elizabeth: Hmm. Jason's promises mean something. If he took vows, then he's really married, forsaking all others, for better, for worse.

Carly: Oh, god, who are we kidding? Listen if I had to run this dump of a prison, I'd follow Alcazar's orders, too.

Jason: No, you would take any bribe and get the hell out of town. You're smart. The warden isn't.

Carly: Yeah, well, it doesn't take much intelligence to line two people up against a wall and shoot them.

Jason: Hey, hey, we are not getting shot.

Carly: Oh, my god, what about Michael? Jason, what is Michael going to do without his mom and his daddy and his uncle Jason?

Jason: Carly, stop it. Hey. Do not lose it, ok? You need to pay attention to me.

Carly: Ok.

Jason: Are you listening?

Carly: Yeah.

Jason: Ok, look at me. Have I ever broken a promise to you?

Carly: Never.

Jason: Ok, then. I promise you I will get you out of here, but you have to promise me something, too.

Carly: Ok.

Jason: Ok? That when I distract the guards --

Carly: Distract? But how?

Jason: Don't worry about that. Do not talk. Just listen to me. Ok?

Carly: Ok.

Jason: The second the guards focus on me, you need to run like hell. You do not look back.

Carly: No, forget it. Forget it. No.

Jason: You get to that airstrip and you tell Manny to take off --

Carly: Jason, no. Just stop it! Stop it, because I am not letting you do this. I'm not going to let you sacrifice your life for me.

A.J.: So you made a bad decision under pressure.

Skye: Oh, A.J., This is 10,000 times worse than that ridiculous contract I signed with grandfather. That time it was only about business, and I almost lost Jax. This time it's about Brenda's life.

A.J.: All you've done is withheld some information.

Skye: No. It's a little worse than that. Brenda's in danger right now, partly because of me. I inadvertently helped Alcazar kidnap her. He was at my club. He set me up.

A.J.: Did you tell Jax about any of this?

Skye: Well, I told Jax that Brenda went off with Alcazar and Sonny went after them, so now I'm partly hoping that Alcazar manages to get rid of Sonny and take Brenda away because if she gets back here, the first thing she'll do is run to Jax and tell him that I took part in getting her kidnapped. And if by some miracle that doesn't happen, you know Brenda's eventually going to go to some doctor who isn't on Alcazar's payroll. She's going to find out she isn't dying. She's going to head straight back to my husband.

A.J.: By that time, Jax could be so in love with you he won't even care about Brenda.

Skye: Oh, and how am I going to manage that? So far, honesty, loyalty, and believing in love have got me exactly nowhere. Ditto for secrets and lies and cooperating with Alcazar. No, I am running out of options here. I don't know. Maybe that's my answer. Maybe I never really had Jax. Maybe I don't really have anything to hang on to.

A.J.: Skye, no matter how afraid you are, you fight.

Skye: How?

A.J.: You get Jax out of here by the time Brenda gets back. All right? You take him to Europe, Australia, Alaska, I don't care, anywhere except where Brenda is. And you use that time to get him to fall even more in love with you than he ever has been with Brenda.

Skye: I don't think that's possible.

A.J.: You didn't think it was possible for him to fall in love with you at all, and it happened, right?

Skye: Yeah, but what happens when he finds out about my latest pack of lies?

A.J.: Brenda's never lied to him or hurt him? She did that every time she ran back to Sonny. And you want to hold on to Jax, you get the hell out of here, ok? And which reminds me -- my wife and I are moving to Manhattan.

Skye: What? Since when?

A.J.: Since I made a colossal mistake of my own. And I intend to get out of here before it catches up with me and my wife finds out.

Skye: My god, A.J., do you want to tell me what you did?

A.J.: Too late. I can't fix it. I'm already knee deep.

Skye: Well, when are you leaving?

A.J.: Tomorrow, I hope. And I suggest you do the -- no. You know what? You get out tonight. When Brenda gets back, you don't want to be anywhere near Port Charles, ok?

Skye: I see your point.

A.J.: Can you do this?

Skye: I have to.

Dr. Reinmar: I found Ms. Quartermaine rifling through my files. To the best of my knowledge, she hadn't found Ms. Barrett's file.

Jax: And what would she have found if she'd opened that file? Proof of the lies that you've told Brenda? The death sentence that Alcazar paid you to produce? Do you ever consider for a moment, doctor, that it's wrong to tell a healthy woman that she's going to slowly go insane and then die, that her condition is hopeless?

Dr. Reinmar: I never used the word "hopeless."

Jax: You never used the word "healthy," either, or the magic words "not at risk," "not a carrier," "free to live a healthy life"?

Dr. Reinmar: You asked for the truth. I've given it to you.

Jax: I want proof, doctor. I want copies of Brenda's test results, and I want them certified. And I want them immediately.

Skye: Oh. You're home. Did the specialist give you good news?

Jax: What's with the suitcases?

Skye: Well, it's quite a coincidence your neurologist would say, "what's with the suitcases?" Because here I am packing for our long overdue honeymoon. Assuming, of course, you did get good news.

Jax: Yeah, yeah, it was encouraging to the point of miraculous.

Skye: Oh, Jax! That's amazing! That's so great! Oh, this is such a magical night, and the magic is just going to keep on going because we are going to Nice in three hours.

Alan: Courtney, what's happened now?

Monica: Are you all right? Where's A.J.?

Courtney: I'm fine. What are you guys doing here?

Alan: We got a message from A.J. telling us to meet him at Kelly's right away.

Mike: Hey, honey. What are we celebrating?

Monica: This is a celebration?

A.J.: Surprise! Ok, now, I haven't done anything wrong, ok? Elizabeth, would you please bring one of everything of the menu and two of everything chocolate. Thank you.

Alan: What's he done this time?

A.J.: I hope you're ok with this impromptu party.

Courtney: Yeah, sure.

A.J.: Ok, this is a graduation of sorts. My wife and I have weathered a few storms lately, and what doesn't destroy you makes you stronger. And we're more in love than ever and ready to take on the world. So tomorrow morning we're moving to Manhattan.

Zander: Who died? You all right?

Elizabeth: I don't think I am. While I was gone, Jason got married.

Zander: Yeah. I saw him at the courthouse with his wife when I was there to testify against Alcazar. It's probably pretty unexpected for you.

Elizabeth: "Unexpected" doesn't even begin to describe it.

Carly: Ok. Listen to me. If anyone should run, it should be you. You're much faster than I am. I'll distract the guards, ok?

Jason: Carly, if I run, what's going to happen to you? You're going to get shot for causing trouble. Is that what you want? Isn't the goal to get home to Michael?

Carly: Yes, and I want us both home!

Jason: Ok. Fine. Be quiet. We're going to leave together, but only if you cooperate.

Carly: Fine. I will do that, but I am not going to leave you. I'm not running away and leave you to get --

Jason: Oh, forget it. You know what? I can't --

Carly: Jason -- fine. What is the plan?

Jason: The plan is to do what I tell you when I tell you.

Carly: Fine, but you promise me that you will stay alive.

Warden: Alcazar esta vivo. Su avion cayo en una isla cerca de tortola.

Guard: Usted fue muy inteligente al no hacer ningún trato con los prisioneros.

Second guard: Alcazar se lo va a agradecer.

Warden: Ya veremos. The good news is your boss is alive. The bad news is not for long. Let's go.

Carly: Where?

Warden: You can die here now or you can enjoy 15 more minutes of life.

Carly: My husband is going to rip your throats out. Sonny Corinthos -- remember his name because he's going to kill you!

[Warden whistles]

Enrique: Corinthos.

Brenda: How long do you think it'll be before Luis' people show up?

Alcazar: Not long. My men have the exact coordinates. They should have no trouble locating us. Well, aren't you going to thank me for saving our lives? It wasn't easy putting this jet down safely.

Sonny: Yeah, you're a hell of a pilot.

Alcazar: There was a minute or two where I wasn't sure, but how could I let you die?

Brenda: Now you think I'm going to thank you?

Alcazar: I might enjoy that. You want to blame me for everything that's happened, Brenda, but we both know better. All I've ever done is try to keep my promise to you.

Sonny: Ok, you need to go take a walk for a second, ok? Go take --

Brenda: No. Why? What do you mean, go take a walk?

Alcazar: Oh, it's simple. He wants to execute me and he doesn't want you to see it. What, are you afraid you'll disgust her, that she'll see you for who you really are? A common thief to shoot a man without a gun.

Sonny: Brenda --

Brenda: What? Why?

Alcazar: Because he's betting that if I'm dead by the time my men get here he'll be able to buy them off. He assumes they're like him -- for sale to the highest bidder. Sonny's not special, Brenda. He's common. A common criminal.

Brenda: Are you trying to get him to kill you, Luis? Is that what you want?

Alcazar: I'm simply stating a fact.

Sonny: He's working you, Brenda. He's trying to buy time. He's hoping that you still love him enough. Ain't that right? You're thinking that if she hates you that's better than nothing, right? At least she still cares. Maybe she cares enough if you die, and you're hoping, Luis, that that's going to stop me. But it wouldn't stop you, Luis, would it? Would it? Brenda, come here. I got to talk to you about something.

Brenda: Listen, I don't want you to hurt him.

Sonny: What are you doing?

Guard: Levantate!

Carly: What?

Guard: Que te bajes!

Jason: You be one hell of a ball player, Carly.

Guard: Get up!

Jason: With your special bat under the bench, hit the ball out of the park.

Guard: Vamos! Va a ser tus ultimas plegarias a dios --

Jason: Ok, ok!

Carly: Ok, ok, ok.

Jason: Carly, hit him!

[Carly screams]

Carly: Oh, my god.

Jason: All right, come on. Here, come here. Get these keys. Get these keys.

Carly: Where? Where?

Jason: Get the keys. This one. Ok, ok, ok. All right, all right, get that guy's gun over there. Get that guy's gun.

Elizabeth: You know, I honestly thought I had given up on Jason, that I accepted the fact that we were never going to happen. I mean, he let me believe Sonny was dead, and then he watched me struggle to comfort him in his grief, and then he shut me out and focused all of his attention on Courtney. I just thought that I was --

Zander: Jason had pushed you too far, and you were ready to let him go.

Elizabeth: I guess deep down I was still carrying some hope, some childish fantasy Jason would miss me so much while I was gone, he'd be on my doorstep when I got back and he'd say he was sorry and he wanted to find a way to work things out.

Zander: Look, all I can say is that it's going to get easier. Of course, Emily not being in Port Charles probably helped. You're probably going to be running into Jason.

A.J.: My friend who I'm working for has an extra place in Manhattan overlooking the Hudson, and that's where we're going to stay, at least until Courtney can find something she likes.

Mike: Yeah? What area?

A.J.: Chelsea. You know the city?

Mike: Yeah.

Monica: What's the matter?

Mike: Chelsea --

Alan: This move to Manhattan is classic A.J., trying to run away from his problems. No, here's the problem -- it's only going to catch up with him.

Monica: My, aren't we supportive.

Alan: It's true.

Monica: Well, I happen to be very glad that he's moving. He needs to put some distance between himself and the family chaos.

A.J.: Excuse me, hey, don't tell cook, but I think that Kelly's chocolate cake is better.

Mike: You're not saying too much. Is all this happening a little too fast for you?

Courtney: I'm not quite as excited as A.J. is. It seems like I just found you and I found out that I have a brother, and now we're moving.

Mike: Honey, I'm going to be down to visit so often, you're probably going to get sick of me.

Courtney: Well, I'm sure Sonny's not going to be visiting any time soon.

Mike: Baby, you go to New York with your husband and be happy. There's no point in you wasting time trying to get Sonny's approval. It's never going to happen.

Alcazar: Right now, this very moment, is is what you've always feared, Brenda. You begged me to stop this from happening, to protect you from yourself. This isn't you, Brenda, this angry woman standing over me, threatening me with a gun. This is the disease. It's keeping you from remembering the life we've shared, your faith in me, faith so strong, you trusted me to take care of you for four years. "Promise me you'll tell me when it's time." How many times did you say that? Because you knew at some point you'd become like your mother, Brenda.

Brenda: Shut up.

Alcazar: It's time, Brenda. The disease is in charge.

Sonny: He's working you. He's working you.

Brenda: No, he's right. You're right. I am crazy. Someday I won't know you, I won't remember you. So, see, I won't feel bad for killing you.

Sonny: Give me the gun.

Brenda: No.

Skye: You promised me the honeymoon of a lifetime. I'm going to hold you to that.

Jax: You want to go tonight?

Skye: Well, if I had my way, I would have gone right after the wedding, but the world turned upside down and didn't really right itself until you decided to stay with me instead of going after Brenda. Oh, Jax, this is a chance for us to get back to us, you know, to find out who we really are, just us alone, together, all the ways that we love each other. We're going to get a villa and we are going to forget the rest of the world even exists.

Jax: You know, the French Riviera gets cold this time of year.

Skye: Oh, so we'll spend the first couple of weeks trying to find someplace that is warm. I don't know, maybe the Greek islands or Naples or whatever, but it'll be an adventure, and we have to promise not to call home, ok, because that's what a honeymoon's all about, is about just getting away from it all, just you and me.

Jax: You know, you made the outer banks sound wonderful.

Skye: No, no, no. I want to go out of the country, I do, and you did say this is the honeymoon of my dreams, right? So if we can't find what we want in Europe, then we'll go to Turkey or North Africa -- although I really can't see myself going on safari because I don't know if I really packed for that.

Jax: I guess anything's good after Switzerland, right?

Skye: Switzerland?

Jax: Yeah, the neurologist I met with tonight was yours, Dr. Reinmar from the clinic you went to in Switzerland. He also happens to be Brenda's doctor for the last four years. Small world, isn't it?

Zander: You know, in my humble opinion, you haven't lost anything worth having. You're smart, you're beautiful, you're talented, and you're funny, and --

Elizabeth: And what?

Zander: You deserve someone who can be honest with you, someone whose job doesn't take priority over you. Jason wasn't good enough for you. And the time that we spent together was something --

Elizabeth: Was what we needed then and probably a mistake for the both of us.

Zander: I was going to say that it was a friendship that took a wrong turn and how maybe now we've turned it back. You'll find somebody someday. Maybe -- maybe somebody soon.

Elizabeth: You're a closet romantic. You know that?

Zander: Do me a favor and don't tell anybody.

Jax: You're very persistent when you want something -- a vacation from everyone else, medical records. Not just persistent, but resourceful to the point of ruthless. And Dr. Reinmar told me that you went through his filing cabinet. Takes a lot of nerve. But then, you've never had a problem with that.

Skye: Jax, I told you that I would fight with everything that I have for our love. I love you. I need you. You are my life. And when Brenda came back, you were pushing me away. I needed the truth. Can you please try and understand that?

Jax: Of course I understand. Everyone deserves the truth.

Skye: I was terrified of losing you. That's why I didn't say anything. I was afraid that you'd go running straight back to Brenda if you found out she wasn't really dying.

Jax: My god. You did find out.

Sonny: Don't listen to him, Brenda.

Alcazar: I saved your life.

Sonny: He's working you.

Alcazar: I literally pulled you from the ocean.

Sonny: Give me the gun.

Alcazar: I blew air into your lungs.

Sonny: Give me the gun.

Alcazar: It's not human nature to kill the man who saved your life, Brenda. You can't kill me and you can't let Corinthos do it or you'd prove your mother right. You'll be her, Brenda -- crazy enough to kill me and somehow justified in doing it.

Sonny: He's just stalling. Ok, he was waiting for his people to get here. Give me the gun.

Alcazar: It's murder, Brenda. Toss the gun into the jungle.

Sonny: Just go ahead, give me the gun.

Brenda: No.

Sonny: Give me the --

Alcazar: Toss the gun, Brenda. Toss it.

Monica: So, are you and Courtney all packed?

A.J.: Just have a few more boxes. We're pretty close, yeah.

Alan: Have you ever been over to A.J. and Courtney's apartment?

Monica: No, but I promise I'm going to see the one in New York because I'm very glad you're moving, A.J. you're getting away from people who have undermined you in the past.

A.J.: Well, I appreciate that, mother. You know, there are some people in your life that are just unlucky for me. Call it karma. Who knows?

Courtney: I'll call you in a couple days. I promise.

Mike: Hey, and I'll see you thanksgiving, ok?

Courtney: Ok.

Mike: Ok. Listen, I got to go, too, all right?

A.J.: Hey, I'm going to walk him out. I'll be right back.

Mike: Listen, when Courtney was young --

A.J.: Right?

Mike: You know, every thanksgiving it was my job --

Monica: You take care of him, ok?

Courtney: I will.

[Phone rings]

Jason's voice: Leave your number and a message.

[Answering machine beeps]

Courtney: Jason, it's Courtney. I don't know if you heard, but -- well, A.J. and I, we're moving to Manhattan, tomorrow. I'm really sorry I didn't get a chance to say good-bye. I just wanted to make sure that you knew that I'll never forget how you helped me and I'll always be grateful. You saved me so many times, and you always -- you always made things better. Anyway, I didn't want you to think that I would leave without saying good-bye. Take good care of my big brother, ok? And try -- try and be a little bit careful. Anyway, Jason, thanks again.

A.J.: You sound so grateful. I forget. What has Jason done for you, exactly? He's given you a gun, completely mishandled the thing with the stalker. Of course, on the other hand, what have I done? I mean, I've only jumped through hoops of fire to get us out of here so we can start a decent life. How can that possibly compare to my brother, the hero?

Woman: Make a wish. It's the first snow, it's early. It's magic. Make a wish.

Elizabeth: I wish for happiness. And soon, please.

Woman: Not to worry. It's on its way. It might take you by surprise.

A.J.: Admit it. You don't want to leave Jason.

Courtney: Can we please just talk about this at home?

A.J.: Your faithful bodyguard. Why care about me, my career?

Courtney: I do.

A.J.: Why would you want to build on a marriage when you can spend quiet evenings here, alone with Jason on the couch, helping train our dog?

Courtney: What did you just say?

Pilot: We should be landing on Tortola in about 10 minutes.

Carly: That guy said Sonny was near Tortola, not on Tortola.

Jason: We need to get a boat to search the surrounding islands.

Carly: How many islands?

Jason: Carly, we're going to find him, ok?

Carly: Yeah? And you know what? Tell me -- what if Alcazar's men find him first, huh? You know what? Brenda is not in danger. Alcazar will take her. He will take her away. They will disappear. And you know what?

Jason: Don't do this.

Carly: You know what's going to happen? You know Sonny's going to end up dead.

Jason: Don't do this, Carly.

Carly: What? You know what? You think she's going to be happy then? You think that if Sonny dies it'll be enough for Brenda?

Jason: Sonny is not going to die.

Carly: No. You know what? He can't, because I can't lose him.

Sonny: Hey.

Sonny: Hey, Brenda. It's all right, Brenda. It's all right.

Brenda: You think I'm losing my mind, don't you?

[Brenda chuckles]

Jax: After all the lies you've told me, I still gave you the benefit of the doubt. I didn't want to believe that you knew that Brenda's illness was a lie.

Skye: Whose lie, Jax? Has it ever occurred to you that Brenda knew all along that her illness was a lie, she was just using it as an excuse?

Jax: You think Brenda wants an excuse to ruin her life, to turn her back on the people that she loves, to roam the world with an arms dealer and then marry Jason?

Skye: Well, it worked, didn't it? She sure as hell got your sympathy.

Jax: Brenda didn't need my sympathy. She had my heart.

Brenda: You know, I've hurt everyone I've ever loved. And Luis was right. I'm going to hurt someone again.

Sonny: No, you're not. You're not going to hurt anybody.

Brenda: Yeah, I will.

Sonny: No, you're not.

Brenda: Oh, this is -- I can end this, you know, right now.

Sonny: You don't want to end it.

Brenda: It'll be so good. So good.

[Brenda laughs]

Brenda: Ah, yeah. You remember how you set me free on our wedding day?

Sonny: I can set you free?

Brenda: It'd be so good to be free.

Sonny: You want me to set you free?

Brenda: Whoo!     Ha! Ha!

Sonny: How you feeling?

Brenda: Ok.

Sonny: Feel good?

Brenda: Uh-huh.

Sonny: Ok? Huh? All right?

>> On the next "General Hospital" -- 

Courtney: How could you have known about Jason helping me train Rosie? You weren't even here. You were in D.C.

Jax: Your lies hurt Brenda.

Skye: You hurt me.

Sonny: You can't give up now. You got too many things to live for.
