>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Cameron: She's not coming.

Luke: Why did I imagine that she would meet me?

Jax: I know Brenda's innocent because I did it. I killed Alcazar.

Sonny: He doesn't want Jax. He wants me and Jason.

Ric: Yeah, but if he gets a hold of that tape, he will destroy it.

Felicia: Let me do the investigation.

Alexis: I'm going to take you up on your offer.

Carly: She was on her way to confess.

Sonny: If you confess, we'll all be tried for murder.

Brenda: Are you saying I need to choose?

Sonny: Brenda, it's Sonny. Listen, you need to call me as soon as you get in. There's some stuff going on with Jax's hearing, and I need to tell you what it is. So you call me as soon as you can. Thanks. Bye.

[Knock on door]

Marco: Lt. Taggert.

Taggert: Yeah, yeah, come on. Mr. Corinthos requests the presence of the police.

Sonny: I appreciate you getting here so quickly.

Taggert: Never thought I'd see the day.

Sonny: Can I get you something? Maybe some espresso, some tea?

Taggert: You can get to the point, Mr. Corinthos.

Sonny: Good. You're looking for this tape? Huh?

Taggert: Possibly.

Sonny: It puts Jax at the murder scene.

Taggert: How'd you get it?

Sonny: Well, how did the police department lose such strong evidence? But don't worry about it because I'm giving it back.

Taggert: Doing your civic duty, huh?

Sonny: Yeah, kind of, yeah. I suggest you take this to the judge as soon as you can. Don't pass go -- unless you're as corrupt as the district attorney.

Carly: Oh, ok. I'm ready. Did you call for the car already?

Sonny: No, no, no, no, no. No, no, no. You are not going to Jax's bail hearing, and that's final.

Skye: I am sure you understand by now that --

Felicia: Thank you.

Skye: Everything is about Brenda. Jax confessed to keep her out of prison, and Scott Baldwin wants to charge her with murder so he can bring down Sonny and Jason. They're both doing what they can to keep her quiet.

Felicia: And you're sticking to your story.

Skye: What story? I know what I saw. Brenda went after Alcazar with a knife.

Felicia: And you saw this happen from Alcazar's bedroom?

Skye: That's right.

Felicia: Did you see Brenda actually push Alcazar over the railing?

Skye: It's not that hard to figure out.

Felicia: Why didn't you stop her? I mean, she's not that big. She can't pick him up and literally throw him --

Skye: Jax didn't kill him.

Felicia: But we need to find out who did.

[Knock on door]

A.J.: Hey, Felicia. What's going on here?

Alexis: How you doing?

Jax: Good, good. I'm ready to plead guilty.

Alexis: Nobody's pleading anything today.

Jax: Well, the sooner I can take responsibility for what I've done, the sooner you can go home.

Alexis: You didn't kill Alcazar. But we're just going to worry about bail today. You sit. I'll talk. No self-sacrifice. No confession of any guilt or anything else. Is that understood?

Jax: Yes.

Scott: Ms. Davis.

Alexis: Not a word.

Jax: Yes, Ms. Davis.

Scott: Here we are, squaring off in court.

Alexis: Something tells me you're not going to put up much of a fight.

Scott: We both want the same thing.

Lucky: Hey. Hey, you can't take that. Give me this.

Man: Hey!

Lucky: This is my dad's.

Man: Well, it's mine now.

Lucky: Get out of here.

Man: Whatever. There's more where that came from.

Lucky: Hey, where's my dad?

Cameron: I have no idea.

Lucky: Hey, who said you could take that?

Man: Who else? Santa Claus.

Luke: Ho, ho, ho. Merry Christmas to you. Happy holidays. Get yourself -- everybody get a nice little present from Santa Claus. Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho.

Elizabeth: Luke, Luke --

Luke: Ho --

Elizabeth: Luke, you can't do this.

Luke: Sure, I can. Sure, I can.

Elizabeth: No, no, no, no --

Luke: There's plenty where this came from.

Elizabeth: This is Kelly's money.

Luke: Whoo, little lady almost caught Santa's fingers.

Elizabeth: You can't give this money away.

Luke: Well, sure -- it's me, it's me. It's me, remember? I own half of Kelly's. I can do this. Ho, ho, ho.

Elizabeth: Look, look -- why don't I call Bobbie? I'll just call Bobbie --

Luke: Oh, no, no, it's ok. I'm not giving Bobbie's half away, just my half. It's all right.

Elizabeth: Ok, you know what? We're going to sit down, catch your breath.

Luke: Oh, no, Santa doesn't need to catch his breath. He's always got breath.

Elizabeth: I'm going to call Bobbie.

Luke: Yeah --

Elizabeth: She can discuss this with you --

Luke: Here you go!

[Laughter]

Luke: Ho, ho, merry Christmas.

Elizabeth: Why don't I get you a cup of coffee?

Luke: Here you go, everybody. Well, if it isn't -- ho, ho, ho -- young lad Lucas Lorenzo and the beautiful Georgie Jones. Here you go. Merry Christmas. And for you, merry Christmas. And when it runs out, just pick up that old cell phone and call Santa. Ho, ho. He'll give you some more.

Georgie: Thank you, Mr. Spencer.

Luke: Oh -- they think I'm Santa. Don't bust me, ok? Ho, ho, ho. Well, Christmas season is here, everybody. Come on over to Kelly's. Anything you can carry out is yours! We don't care! Ho, ho, ho. Ho, ho, ho. Happy Christmas.

Elizabeth: Wait just a second. Put this down. You can't take it.

Georgie: Give me that.

Woman: The best stuff's in the kitchen, anyway.

Elizabeth: Wait! You want to help me out over here? Come on.

Bobbie: Hey!

Lucas: Nobody leaves as of now.

Bobbie: Hey, hey, hey, what's going on in here?

Elizabeth: You got to do something.

Bobbie: What's going on? Put that down. Hey, wait, that's Ruby's chili. That is Ruby's chili.

Woman: Everything's free for Christmas.

Bobbie: Not Ruby's chili.

Woman: But the guy said --

Bobbie: What guy? Give me this, please. Thank you very much.

Woman: He was dressed up like Santa.

Bobbie: Oh -- don't tell me.

Lucas: Luke.

Elizabeth and Georgie: Luke.

Bobbie: Ok, ok.

[Clangs on pot]

Bobbie: Put everything down right now. Right now. Put that down -- or I'm calling the cops. Ok, out the door, all of you. Go. Right now.

Elizabeth: You heard her! Get out! Come on.

Bobbie: Put that down. Put it down.

Georgie: That pie --

Elizabeth: It's not yours! Put it down! Come on, come on, come on. Get out, get out, get out.

Georgie: Lucas, will you stand in the door, please?

Bobbie: Is Luke completely out of control, or what?

Elizabeth: In a word, yes.

Lucky: This bar is my dad's life. He's made his living here. Hey, don't take that.

Woman: Hey, read the sign, will you?

Cameron: Well, you've got to give him points for style. I'll say that.

Lucky: Aren't you supposed to be helping?

Cameron: I'm falling down on the job, wouldn't you say?

Lucky: Don't you even care? Hey, put that down. That's stealing.

Cameron: Lucky, how much has he told you about this new girlfriend of his?

Lucky: Not much.

Cameron: Are you aware that she's a blonde and reminds him of your mother?

Lucky: You know, I really don't even want to think about all that stuff right now, doctor.

Cameron: Lucky, there is no girlfriend.

Lucky: Can you forget about the girlfriend stuff just for a minute? I mean, it's obvious my dad's got all sorts of other problems --

Cameron: He made her up.

Lucky: No, he didn't.

Cameron: She doesn't exist. She's a delusion.

Lucky: That's crazy. Hey, what did I tell you about that? Give me that. What's your name?

Woman: Tracy.

Cameron: Lucky, have you ever seen this woman?

Lucky: No, I haven't gone out of my way to meet her.

Cameron: Did he tell you that they danced together at Wyndham's, except that only Luke showed up on the surveillance tape, and that he slugged a cop to protect her, only she wasn't there?

Lucky: Maybe my dad's been drinking.

Cameron: Lucky, your father's losing it.

Lucky: I've got to go help him.

Cameron: Probably a good idea.

Luke: Ho, ho, ho ho, ho, ho ho, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho and how about you ho, ho and you, too that's not fair. You only got a buck.

Mac: The investigation is ongoing. However, at this point, the evidence supports Jasper Jacks' confession that he killed Luis Alcazar. Excuse me.

Luke: My goodness, you look like you could use a little Christmas cheer.

Mac: Hey, hey, hey -- what's going on here?

Luke: Ho, ho, ho, bubba. Santa says that I should take care of all the public servants, and you be one, so here you go. Go have yourself a wild night on me, you animal.

Mac: Luke, I know you've been under a lot of pressure lately, but this isn't the way to go about it.

Luke: Did I interrupt a press moment? Oh, I'm so sorry. St. Nick sometimes forgets that the press takes precedent at the PCPD.

Reporter: How did this man get through security?

Luke: There you go. Go have a nice dinner and take your cameraman with you. And you, my friend, leave that camera in the van. Ho, ho, ho. Ho, ho, ho. You want to buy something girlie for yourself there --

Mac: This interview is over. The interview is over.

Reporter: Was he searched? Is he carrying a weapon?

Mac: The police department will issue a statement about the Alcazar investigation at the appropriate time. Thank you.

Luke: Isn't he the greatest? Mac Scorpio is the finest police commissioner this town has ever seen. And in return, I think that's worth at least a 10 spot.

Mac: Luke, don't push me.

Luke: Ok.

Mac: Don't push me, Luke.

Luke: You guys, don't you get tired of always reporting bad news?

Mac: Luke, you might want to knock this kind of --

Luke: Have you ever --

Mac: Luke, knock it off!

Luke: Reported anything good? Ok. Have you ever reported anything but blood and guts in your life?

Reporter: I'm just doing my job.

Luke: Hey, me, too. A hearty ho, ho, ho, and thank you very much. Here you go --

Mac: Spencer, think about what you're doing right now.

Luke: For protecting my right to know. What do you know? I'm a poet and don't know -- it.

Mac: Spencer, leave now or I'll lock you up.

Luke: It's St. Nick, bubba. But if you feel that way, I'll just have to take my holly sprig and my olive branch and go somewhere where Santa Claus is appreciated. Somewhere in this town, somebody must appreciate him. Good night, you-all! Happy new year! Merry Christmas! On Prancer, on Dasher, on Vixen! Ho, ho, ho! You, vixen! Ho, ho, ho, ho.

Skye: Felicia's working for Alexis.

A.J.: Yes. You know, everything you need is in the police report.

Felicia: Well, no, actually, there are a lot of things that are missing.

A.J.: Really? Well, why don't you let Mac fill you in?

Felicia: Why don't you want me to question Skye?

A.J.: She's been under a lot of strain, and we have some important business to discuss.

Felicia: All right, then, if you can think of anything that's important, that -- not a lot of detail -- would you give me a call?

Skye: Oh, absolutely.

Felicia: Ok.

Skye: Thank you for driving all the way over here.

Felicia: Oh, sure. Call me anytime, ok?

Skye: All righty.

Felicia: All right.

Skye: Bye-bye.

Felicia: Bye.

A.J.: Have you lost your mind?

Skye: "Important business to discuss"? Oh, that's not going to make her suspicious.

A.J.: You know what? I don't want you squealing to Felicia or anyone else. Can you handle that?

Skye: She's on our side.

A.J.: But for all we know, she's headed straight to the commissioner. Look, Mac already suspects you. What if they try to trip you up on your story, Skye? You know I'm right.

Skye: Look, all I want is for Jax to be free and for Brenda to pay for what she did, all right?

A.J.: Stop messing up.

Skye: Fine. You want a ride to Jax's hearing?

A.J.: Whoa, you're not going. I just stopped by to make sure you were ok.

Skye: Oh, please. Do I look all right?

A.J.: You mean will Jax notice you?

Skye: Look, we both want Jax to get bail so he can get free and come to his senses, and we both want Brenda to pay for what she did -- you because it'll bring down Jason and Sonny and me because she's a lying tramp who stole my husband. Now, do I look all right?

A.J.: You look fine.

Skye: Thank you very much.

A.J.: Whoa, whoa, whoa, not so fast. I want you showing up at this hearing sober.

Skye: You know, there are meetings for people with this problem, too -- people obsessed with other people's drinking -- especially when that person wants a drink so badly himself.

A.J.: Call it what you want. I'm keeping an eye on you.

Skye: Let's go.

A.J.: Yeah.

Scott: Your client's confession has compromised our investigation.

Alexis: The police investigation or lack thereof isn't my concern.

Scott: Let's just get this over with so I can go after the real killer.

Alexis: Now that's an innovative idea -- at least for you.

Scott: Come on, you want Sonny behind bars as much as I do. You just don't want to admit it.

Alexis: Anything else?

Scott: Yeah, let's get this over with. You can go home and change some diapers, then. How about that?

Alexis: Good.

Jax: So, what's the holdup?

Alexis: The judge is running late.

Jax: Then what?

Alexis: Today we get bail. Tomorrow we talk about truth, justice, and how you sacrificed yourself on the altar for Brenda Barrett-Morgan -- not to mention how we're going to deal with your scorned and extremely vindictive wife.

Carly: What, you want me to stay here?

Sonny: Well, there's no reason for you to go to Jax's hearing.

Carly: Ok. Well, then, stay home with me.

Sonny: But I got to get -- I got to make sure that Taggert gives the tape to the judge, you see what I'm saying?

Carly: Yeah, well, you wouldn't have that tape if it wasn't for me, right?

Sonny: Right.

Carly: Hmm?

Sonny: You aren't going.

Carly: Why not? What are you afraid of? You think I'm going to see Brenda and rip her hair out?

Sonny: You see? I can't let you go.

Carly: What are you going to do, Sonny? Lock me in my room, put the guards on triple alert?

Sonny: Why do you do this?

Carly: Don't ask me. Ask yourself.

Luke: There you go. Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukah.

Reporter: You got time for an interview?

Luke: Oh, I thought you'd never ask. Hello, ho, ho, out there in Christmas land. How's the holidays doing you so far? Are you full of jingle bell spirit and good cheer? Are your children all tucked --

Cameron: No, wait, wait.

Lucky: Do you want my dad to look like a fool on 6:00 news?

Cameron: He knows exactly what he's doing.

Luke: Does your wife even know who the hell you are? Are your hearts full and warm or are they a block of ice? When's the last time you said "I love you" to someone before they said "I love you" to you?

Reporter: What are you trying to accomplish?

Luke: When did you last go to bed and wake up with a stranger and the stranger was you? You, my friend. Everything you believed the night before was suddenly gone. We need a miracle here!

Reporter: So that's what this is all about, a Christmas miracle?

Luke: Darling, where did you sleep last night? Did you have a nice, warm bed? Did you get something to eat before you went to sleep, or did you go to sleep on an empty stomach? This is what I'm talking about. How are we going to get through life if we don't live and love and laugh together? And what is reality, anyway?

Reporter: Do you really believe you're Santa Claus?

Luke: Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho. They sent the dim one, didn't they?

[Laughter]

Luke: No, my friend, I am fully aware that I am not jolly old St. Nick, who may or may not fly around the world every Christmas in a sleigh. In fact, this is not my real stomach. It does not resemble a bowl full of jelly. My eyes do not twinkle, and I have no rosy cheeks, and I am in disguise. I could be anyone. Maybe I'm you.

Reporter: So why are you giving out cash?

Luke: I got your attention, didn't I? I'm giving out cash because I wanted your attention. I have something important to say about fantasy and illusion. Illusions are all around us, vying for our time and attention. You don't have to be delusional to live in a dream world if you're lucky. See, that's what I'm trying to believe. I'm trying to believe that because it's important to me.

Reporter: You're Luke Spencer.

Luke: Summer, it's me. It's me. If you're out there, I need to see you. Please. I need to know you're real.

Bobbie: Luke pulled the same stunt at the club. Damian just called.

Elizabeth: Where is he now?

Bobbie: Lucky and that new psychiatrist are out looking for him.

Elizabeth: Oh, Lucky must be a wreck.

Bobbie: We Spencer's are pretty tough.

Georgie: So, are you ok? I mean, with your uncle?

Lucas: I guess he's all brokenhearted or something, that's all. Aren't you hot in that coat?

Georgie: Yeah, I guess I am.

Lucas: I guess you are.

[Pounding on door]

Elizabeth: Ok, I'm coming.

Carly: Why is the door locked? And where is my mother?

Elizabeth: She's in the back.

Bobbie: Oh, hi, honey.

Carly: Hey.

Bobbie: Luke is on a rampage, so I'm headed over to the bank before he raids the accounts. Would you do me a favor? Give Elizabeth a hand. Oh, dear. Well, whatever the problem is with Sonny, play by the rules and you'll work it out. Love you. I'll see you later.

Carly: Thanks, Ma. All right, keep straightening this place up, ok?

Elizabeth: Carly, we really don't need your help.

Carly: Lucas, just, yeah, continue with the spoons, setting the table. And, Georgie, why don't you get the counter, ok?

Georgie: Great.

Carly: Very cute top.

Georgie: Thank you.

Carly: You're welcome.

[Knock on door]

Carly: Elizabeth -- the door.

Ric: What's -- what's going on?

Elizabeth: You don't want to know.

Ric: Oh.

Carly: Sonny sent you to spy on me. This is great.

Alexis: Thank you.

Skye: Alexis, how's Jax?

Alexis: I want you out of this courtroom.

Skye: This is a public hearing.

Alexis: He wouldn't be here if it weren't for you.

Skye: What, you're blaming me because I told the truth to the police? Is that it?

A.J.: Just take it easy, both of you.

Alexis: Your revenge against Brenda may cost your husband his life.

Skye: We're on the same side here, Alexis. Try and grasp the concept, would you?

Alexis: Have you considered this trial? Have you considered cross-examination? That's my strong suit.

A.J.: Look, this isn't a hearing, ok? It's a bail setting.

Skye: You know what? Take it easy, ok?

Alexis: Get her out of here, A.J. A.J., get her away from my client.

Skye: Please don't do this, Jax.

A.J.: Let's take a seat, all right?

Skye: What, are you looking for Brenda?

Jax: Yes, I am.

Alexis: Skye, either take a seat or get out of this courtroom.

A.J.: Let's go.

Skye: It's too bad that she's not here to see your noble sacrifice. I wonder where she is. Oh, that's right. She's probably with Sonny.

Alexis: Wrong again.

Bailiff: If you'll take your seats, please. All rise. Court is in session, the honorable Vincent Doyle presiding. Please be seated.

Judge: And what do we have here?

Bailiff: The people vs. Jasper Jacks on a charge of murder.

Judge: And I assume you want bail?

Alexis: Yes, your honor.

Judge: Proceed.

Alexis: Your honor, my client has no prior record of violent crime. He's a very successful businessman. He has holdings internationally as well as having worked for years at E.L.Q., Which is based right here in Port Charles. He does, however, have his own private plane, but he has significant ties to the community and, therefore, I don't see that he poses a flight risk. We ask for minimal bail.

Judge: Mr. Baldwin?

Scott: I have nothing to add, your honor.

Judge: Mr. Jacks, you understand that now isn't the time to fly that jet.

Alexis: My client will agree to any court-imposed restriction, sir.

Judge: Don't leave the state. Bail is set at $50,000 --

Taggert: Lt. Taggert, PCPD. Sorry for the interruption, your honor.

Judge: This better be good.

Taggert: I have evidence pertaining to the people vs. Jasper Jacks.

Luke: Summer -- summer, if you can hear me and see me, I need you to do something for me, please. As a personal favor, I need you to step out of the shadows and just -- just for a moment, I need you to prove that you're real. There are people that don't believe you exist, people that I'm trying to prove to that you are real, so, please, I need you to show me the difference between truth -- reality and illusion. So meet me at the club. You know where it is. I'm going there now, and I really hope that you'll show because I need it. I need it bad for you to be there. Please, Summer, please, do me this favor. Cut.

Reporter: Who is Summer?

Luke: It doesn't matter. You got your story. Will you make sure that this airs right away?

Reporter: Oh, it will, definitely.

Luke: Ok, run along. Run along, everybody. Happy holidays, happy holidays. There you go. Run along. Happy holidays.

Lucky: Dad --

Luke: Hey.

Lucky: Hey.

Luke: How was I?

Lucky: When was the last time you got some sleep?

Luke: You didn't like the show? What was wrong with it?

Lucky: I'm just a little worried about you, that's all.

Luke: Oh, son, that's because you're hanging with Dr. Quack.

Cameron: Santa suit's a nice touch.

Luke: He thinks I'm nuts. Ignore him.

Lucky: Why are you giving away all of your stuff?

Luke: Stuff? Son, stuff isn't important. We are so far beyond stuff. I tell you.

Cameron: You still think Summer will show up, huh?

Luke: You are consistently late on the uptake, aren't you, doctor?

Cameron: Just like she did at Kelly's and all those times in the park.

Luke: I'm going to the club.

Cameron: Luke, there is no Summer. The sooner you admit that, the sooner you'll get well.

Lucky: Why don't you leave him alone.

Luke: It's ok, Lucky. Don't pay any attention to the headshrinker. Have a little faith in Father Christmas.

Carly: Oh, so Sonny paid you to follow me here? You know what? So that's your new job? I get it. You know what? I haven't been out of the house for two seconds --

Ric: No, actually, it really --

Carly: Never mind the fact that I gave Sonny exactly what you wanted him to have. Oh, and do I get any credit for it? Oh, nope, not at all. And you know what? Sonny just has to follow me around wherever we go, know what I'm doing every second, and you just play right along --

Ric: Mrs. Corinthos, I haven't seen Mr. Corinthos today.

Carly: Oh. So you just happened to show up here?

Ric: I live here.

Carly: So?

Ric: Can I buy you a cup of coffee?

Carly: No.

Ric: How about an apple turnover?

Carly: I don't want --

Ric: Elizabeth, do we have apple turnovers?

Elizabeth: I think so, yeah.

Ric: Great. How about a coffee and an apple turnover, please? All right? My treat.

[Knock on door]

Georgie: Hi.

Maxie: Why is the door locked?

Georgie: Oh, Luke went all bizarro again.

Maxie: Yeah, so what else is new? Why are you wearing my top?

Georgie: Well, I -- you see, I hate all of my clothes.

Maxie: Oh, you're still trying to impress Lucas, huh?

Carly: I just get so frustrated with Sonny. I shouldn't drag you into this.

Ric: Ah, you know what? Maybe you're just not cut out to be a mob wife.

Taggert: See? See -- right there. That's definitely Jasper Jacks.

Judge: Ms. Davis?

Alexis: I agree.

Judge: Mr. Baldwin?

Scott: That's him, all right.

Skye: Why aren't they showing everybody what's on the tape? Isn't it public record or something?

A.J.: I have no idea. But whatever's on that tape, I'm sure it's not good for Jax.

Judge: Why wasn't this tape submitted as evidence before now?

Taggert: It was unavailable, sir.

Judge: And why was that?

Taggert: I presented it as soon as I received it, sir.

Alexis: The tape proves that Mr. Jacks was at the hotel. It does not prove that he killed anybody.

Judge: Mr. Baldwin, were you aware of this evidence?

Scott: I considered it irrelevant.

Taggert: Are you aware that Mr. Jacks is extremely wealthy and that he owns and flies a jet?

Alexis: I've already made that clear to the judge.

Taggert: Did you tell him that he was detained by the police while trying to flee the country?

Alexis: Which was before his confession.

Taggert: But soon after the murder.

Judge: And obviously relevant. Why didn't you mention it?

Scott: With all due respect, your honor, I didn't consider Mr. Jacks a flight risk.

Judge: Whatever is really going on here, I don't like it. So watch yourselves because I'm watching you. Bail denied.

Skye: No!

Skye: You can't do this.

Judge: Order in this courtroom.

A.J.: I apologize --

Skye: This man is innocent! He hasn't done anything! He doesn't deserve to be locked up!

Judge: Mr. Jacks will be remanded into custody. This hearing is over. Now, clear this courtroom, please.

A.J.: Whoa, Skye, come here.

Skye: How did this happen?

A.J.: You realize you just hurt Jax?

Skye: No.

A.J.: Look, why can't you just get out of your own way and let Baldwin do his job?

Skye: Oh, Baldwin's an idiot. He can't even make a case against the people he wants in prison.

A.J.: He's our idiot, and we need him.

Skye: God, Jax won't even look at me.

A.J.: Yeah, well, everyone else is. Let's go. Come on, get your coat.

Alexis: Did you know about the tape?

Jax: No, I did not.

Alexis: We're still going to beat this.

Scott: You're biased, Corinthos.

Sonny: Jax confessed. The tape backs it up. What do they call that? Slam dunk?

Scott: This case isn't over until you're punching out license plates up at Sing Sing.

Sonny: You got your man.

Scott: You mean Brenda's man. How pathetic are you? You got to send Jax up the river so you can steal Brenda.

Sonny: "Up the river"? Where do you come up with this stuff? Alone at night in your bedroom?

Scott: Get out of here.

Sonny: Ok. Bye.

Scott: Yeah, Brenda. Scott Baldwin. Listen, I wanted to tell you something before you saw it on the news.

Elizabeth: There you go.

Ric: Thank you.

Elizabeth: Mm-hmm.

Carly: You know nothing about me and Sonny.

Ric: Well, I know that you're smart and independent. Must be hard, your having to feel shut out.

Carly: Maybe. But it's not your problem.

Ric: Look, you obviously want your own life.

Carly: Yeah, I do, but it doesn't mean I don't love my husband.

Ric: I'm not saying that, not at all. You know what? I apologize if I said too much.

Carly: I just should've never let go of that club.

Ric: What club?

Carly: Club 101. It was mine. It was my idea. I started it. I did all the groundwork, and I opened it up, and it got off to an incredible start.

Ric: Well, so, what happened?

Carly: Well, things changed. I just wish that I had fought harder to keep it.

Ric: Why didn't you?

Carly: Because of Sonny.

Luke: Eureka.

Luke's voice: Don't believe you exist, people that I'm trying to prove to that you are real. So, please, I need you to show me the difference between truth -- reality and illusion. So meet me at the club. You know where it is. I'm going there now, and I really hope you'll show because I need it. I need it bad for you to be there. Please, Summer, please, do me this favor.

Lucky: Dad -- are you ok?

Luke: You've upset my kid.

Cameron: Just doing my job. I take it Summer didn't show up.

Lucky: Maybe she hasn't heard the news or she's out of town.

Cameron: Or maybe she doesn't exist.

Lucky: Quit saying that.

Cameron: You know Summer's not real. That's why he's trying so hard to prove that she is.

Luke: Do you believe me?

Lucky: Yeah, Dad, I want to, but letting people come in here and tear up the place --

Luke: It's Christmas. This place doesn't matter anymore.

Lucky: What if Summer doesn't show up?

Luke: She will.

Lucky: If she knows about it.

Luke: Well, she must have friends. Somebody'll tell her.

Cameron: It's a nice fantasy, I have to admit.

Luke: She's either going to come right through that door or she will be calling on this telephone.

Lucky: If she knows about it.

Cameron: Got all the bases covered.

Lucky: Can we wait with you?

Luke: Suit yourself. I would offer you gentlemen a drink, but I seem to have given away all my glasses.

Cameron: Ahem.

Luke: Except that one.

Luke: Mmm. She'll be here.

[Phone rings]

Luke: Summer. No, we don't take reservations. Well, what would be the purpose in it? No, don't call back!

Cameron: I take it that wasn't Summer.

Luke: No, it wasn't.

Lucky: Dad, how about I hang out here with you a while, just till you feel better?

Luke: You think I've completely lost it.

Lucky: No. No, I just -- I just think you need to chill out.

Luke: I'm not going to give up on her, just like I'm not going to give up on your mother.

Lucky: No, Dad, please don't go there.

Cameron: You're stuck, that's all, Luke.

Luke: Please ignore him. He doesn't exist.

Cameron: Summer is a crutch.

Luke: Is that right, doctor?

Cameron: You'll never learn to walk if you don't throw away the crutches.

Luke: Everybody walks with crutches, doctor. Booze, gambling, fantasy women, psychiatry. Nobody stands alone.

Cameron: You just need a break, Luke.

Lucky: Hey, Dad --

Luke: What? What's this? What is this? What?

Lucky: Hey, let go of him!

Cameron: Lucky, your father gave away everything he loves. Think what that means.

Lucky: You shut up.

Cameron: What if he decides to end it? How would you feel?

Luke: Well, that's ridiculous.

Cameron: Your father is a danger to himself. Don't make it worse.

Luke: Oh, don't be stupid. Hey, hey! Lucky! Lucky! Don't let them take me, Lucky!

Lucky: I'm sorry, Dad!

Luke: Lucky!

Cameron: I can help your father.

Lucky: Get the hell out of here.

Ric: Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute, wait a minute. Let me help you, let me help you. Easy -- come on.

Elizabeth: Ok, ok.

Ric: All right?

Elizabeth: Thank you.

Ric: This place is a mess. Why don't you just leave a few things --

Elizabeth: No, that's ok.

Ric: And I'll help you.

Elizabeth: No, no, no, I'm fine. Thank you, though.

Ric: Sorry about that.

Carly: Hmm.

Ric: So -- you know, if you enjoyed running a nightclub, then why don't you open another one? Unless you think Sonny is going to mind.

Carly: Ok, no, no, no, no, no. Sonny would love anything that I got involved with that kept me busy so I wouldn't have a chance to ask him what's going on, so he wouldn't have to answer questions.

Ric: Well, it would take a sufficient amount of startup capital on Sonny's part.

Carly: I'm not worried about the money. I mean, look, Sonny's got plenty of money and he's very supportive of things like that. And if I want it, he'll give it to me. And why shouldn't I want it, right? Why shouldn't I want a new club? Michael's in school and Sonny is -- is busy. How many times am I supposed to redecorate our upstairs guest room? Because no one comes to visit, let me tell you that.

Ric: Hey, listen, I don't want to start anything here.

Carly: No, if I do this, it's because I want it, ok? And once I get my mind on something, no one can dissuade me -- not you, not Sonny, not Jax, not Skye -- no one. So if you're having any doubts about my abilities --

Ric: No, no, no --

Carly: Let me tell you --

Ric: No. None at all.

Skye: I've just got to come up with a way to help Jax. I have to.

A.J.: Yeah, getting drunk will help.

Skye: What are you still doing here?

A.J.: I have a plan.

Scott: Jax, for the record, Corinthos is the reason why you didn't get bail.

Alexis: And how did that work?

Scott: He got a hold of the tape.

Alexis: And handed it to Taggert?

Scott: That's right.

Jax: How often do murder suspects get bail? This is pretty much standard procedure, isn't it?

Scott: Corinthos is railroading you. He wants Brenda for himself.

Jax: Oh.

Alexis: Next time you withhold evidence, try not to let anyone find it.

Scott: I'm just doing my job.

Taggert: I told you that I won't suppress evidence.

Scott: The next time you cross me, Taggert, you're going to be in white gloves and a uniform, directing traffic.

Alexis: Is there any chance that you're going to help me fight this?

Jax: Not if it hurts Brenda.

Alexis: Fine. Here are your choices -- you can either tell the truth about what happened the night Alcazar died or you can hand Brenda over to Sonny on a silver platter.

Sonny: Hey. Is Carly home?

Marco: No, she went out. Oh, and Leticia took Michael to the park.

Sonny: All right.

Brenda: No, no, no, no, do not touch me. Here -- do your job. Hold my coat.

Sonny: It's all right, Marco. I've got to speak to Brenda alone.

Brenda: Did you lie to me?

Sonny: What's that?

Brenda: Did you lie to me? It's an easy question.

Sonny: Is this about the tape?

Brenda: Yes, it's about the tape. You know, you and Jason both told me that you were going to take care of the situation, remember, over and over again. And now I find out that you've given Scott this tape that's going to incriminate Jax?

Sonny: Did you check your messages?

Brenda: Did I what?

Sonny: Did you check your messages on your cell phone?

Brenda: What does that have to do with anything?

Sonny: Because I've been calling all day, trying to get a hold of you. I helped Jax stall Scott Baldwin so he can't frame you and Jason. If you want to hear my reasons, I will explain them to you. Or maybe you'd just rather hate me.

>> On the next "General Hospital" -- 

Carly: I'm going to let Sonny know about the new club.

Ric: You got a partner.

A.J.: What I'm about to propose will reunite you and Jax and get Brenda out of the way.

Brenda: You want Jax in jail.

Sonny: For as long as they'll keep him.

Scott: Mr. Wong is going to be administering your lie detector test.

Jax: I don't think I agreed to one of those.
