>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Summer: I'm through playing fantasy girl for emotionally challenged men.

Jax: I arranged for the judge to expedite our respective divorces.

Courtney: A.J.'s trying to frame Jason.

Carly: I promised Sonny that I wouldn't say anything.

Sonny: When Ida leaves, somebody will follow her. Hopefully, she'll take us straight to the killer.

Coleman: I bought you a witness, saved your life. I haven't even told anybody you killed Alcazar.

Lucky: Register at your own risk.

Summer: So, is Prof. Milenkovich really that bad?

Lucky: Put it this way -- a friend of mine registered in one of his courses. He's in therapy now.

Summer: Oh. A professor who gives his students a hard time?

Lucky: Well, I guess it depends on what kind of student you are. Now if you're female and beautiful and flirt back, I'm sure he's going to give you a high grade.

Summer: Ah, yes, I know the type.

Lucky: Hmm.

Summer: Thank you for the warning. You go here to P.C.U..?

Lucky: I was thinking about taking some courses. Actually, just trying to figure out what direction I'm going to go in.

Summer: Yeah. Me, too.

Lucky: I'm Lucky.

Summer: Good to meet you.

Lucky: Nice meeting you.

Summer: My name is Laura.

Skye: Why do you want to keep my secret?

Coleman: How about the goodness of my heart?

Skye: I might've killed Alcazar and you want to keep my secret because you're some nice guy?

Coleman: I get nothing if you're arrested. On the other hand, helping you and A.J. frame Brenda and Jason for Alcazar's murder gets me one step closer to what I want, ok?

Skye: Which is?

Coleman: Courtney.

Skye: What if I did it?

Coleman: Doesn't matter.

Skye: I honestly don't remember pushing Alcazar off the balcony.

Coleman: Well, then, stop worrying about it, Skye.

Skye: But I confessed it to you during my D.T.S. at the hospital. It could still come out.

Coleman: It won't. You just stick to your story that it was Brenda, ok? And Ida, the eyewitness I found, is going to say exactly the same thing. And she's a pro. She's going to see this thing through no matter what.

Sonny: How'd it go?

Felicia: I told Ida that you were after her and she'd better run while she had the chance.

Sonny: She buy it?

Felicia: Yes, she was terrified.

Sonny: What about the police guards?

Felicia: I decoyed them so she could get away.

Sonny: So we're all set.

Felicia: We're all set if you protect her.

Sonny: I just want to follow her to whoever paid her to frame Brenda and Jason.

Felicia: A.J.

Sonny: That's my first bet. And I got Jason in position to get proof.

Ned: I haven't heard from you in a while.

Faith: Have you been waiting by the phone?

Ned: The clock's ticking on my offer.

Faith: Well, I'm all for destroying Sonny Corinthos, but I like to know who I'm getting in bed with before I make a commitment.

Ned: What more do you need?

Faith: Let's just say I would like to continue negotiations. Come see me at my hotel room. I will make it worth your while.

A.J.: I didn't see you in the office all day, Ned.

Ned: Did you get a promotion to hall monitor?

A.J.: Thought you wanted to use E.L.Q. To take Sonny down, or was that just all talk, no action, as usual?

Ned: And your plans for Sonny are right on target?

Courtney: There is no way that I'm letting A.J. get away with this.

Carly: Courtney, stay out of it.

Courtney: Jason is being charged because A.J. paid off that eyewitness. I mean, Carly, I have to do something.

Carly: You know what, Courtney? I have been there, I have done that, and you know what? I've learned to regret it. Sonny and Jason are not going to let Scotty railroad them. I'm sure they have a plan in place, and you need to do the smart thing -- just leave this one alone.

Courtney: Carly, A.J. is doing this to get back at me. There has to be some way that I can fix it.

Carly: Listen to me. Listen to me. All right? Jason is out on bail and you don't want to do anything that's going to compromise that. Just -- don't blame yourself because this has nothing to do with you. This entire mess is caused by one person -- Brenda.

Jax: Just sign on the dotted line right there and you'll no longer be Mrs. Jason Morgan.

Brenda: Uh -- I -- I can't.

Jax: Well, if you need to read through it, I mean, that's fine.

Brenda: That's not it, Jax.

Jax: Then what is it?

Brenda: Um -- I'll tell you when we're alone. I just can't sign it right now.

Jax: All right, all right. I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but the lady's not ready to sign, so --

man: I understand. If you have any questions --

Jax: Yeah, ok, we'll -- we'll call you. Thanks very much for dropping by.

Man: Have a good day.

Jax: All right, so what's -- what's the problem?

[Brenda sighs]

Jax: Your marriage to Jason doesn't exactly mean anything, right?

Brenda: That's not the point.

Jax: Then what is it? Ok, Jason doesn't matter to you, but Sonny does. So this is about him, right?

Brenda: Yes.

Summer: Did I say something wrong?

Lucky: No, no -- no, not at all. Just -- what courses are you taking, Laura?

Summer: You know, I don't know. I thought I'd pick up a catalog, see if anything jumped out at me. Maybe one or two at first.

Lucky: Do you work?

Summer: I did. Somebody I know convinced me I needed a change. What about you?

Lucky: Actually, yeah, I'm a photographer. Also looking for a change.

Summer: Boy, look at all these courses. I don't even know where to begin.

Lucky: Can I suggest starting with something that you're good at?

Summer: Well, I'm great at being other people.

Lucky: You mean acting?

Summer: Well, I've never taken a class or done anything on stage, but my old job was -- yeah, acting sounds great. Let's see what they got in the theater department.

Lucky: Wait. You were talking about your job there a second.

Summer: No, I just had some experience pretending, that's all.

Lucky: You pretending to be someone right now?

Summer: No. This is me. Look, I got to get going. It was good to meet you.

Lucky: I don't mean to make you rush off here. It was just a joke, so I'm sorry about the third degree.

Summer: No, that's ok. It was good to meet a friendly face my first day here. So, if you decide to enroll, then I'll see you around.

Lucky: Yeah. Take care.

Ned: A month ago, you were on your knees, begging me for a job. Now you're gloating, puffing up right in front of my eyes, as if I couldn't just throw you right back in the street.

A.J.: You won't.

Ned: Why the bravado? Is it vengeance? A high over seeing Jason accused for Alcazar's murder?

A.J.: He's guilty. That's his fault, not mine.

Ned: What about Brenda?

A.J.: I feel bad for her. I'm not going to be a hypocrite. What about you? Brenda's like a sister to you, Ned. Now, if her guilt implicates Sonny, you going to shed some tears?

Ned: Not as long as Jax keeps her safely out of the country.

A.J.: What are you so prickly about? Brenda gets away. Sonny and Jason end up in jail. Life is good.

Ned: Maybe. Maybe not. I'm not counting on anyone but myself.

A.J.: Meaning what? Sonny should be looking over his shoulder for you?

Ned: Damn straight.

Brenda: I've explained this to you a few times. You know that Jason and I need to stay married right now so we can't testify against each other. I owe him.

Jax: No, you don't.

Brenda: Yes, I do. He married me when I asked him to. Jason helped me leave the hotel the night that Luis died.

Jax: Ok, so what does this have to do with Sonny?

Brenda: Sonny has a wife and a son. That's all. I'm not going to let him go to prison for conspiracy in a murder that he had nothing to do with. That's all it's about.

Jax: There is --

Brenda: It's not about anything other than that.

Jax: There is no conspiracy if you don't return to Port Charles. You can't --

Brenda: Yeah, there is no conspiracy also if they find the real killer.

Jax: Yeah, but you know Scott Baldwin's not looking for anyone else.

Brenda: Well, Jax, I don't understand. Do you just want to be on the run forever, for the rest of our lives?

Jax: No, I don't. But that seems to be the only option that we have right now.

Brenda: I don't want to do that.

Jax: Why not?

Brenda: Because.

Jax: Because you can't forget Sonny?

Brenda: Why are you saying that to me? You are the one who has been saying to me over and over that Scott Baldwin wants Sonny and Jason to be guilty so he's going to find any way he can to pin this murder on him. I can't ignore that. I can't just pretend like these people don't exist.

Jax: All right, ok. If you don't want to get an annulment right now, that's fine. I'm not going to push you. Does that mean that I can't ask you to be my girl?

Jax: You -- you haven't asked me to go steady, so I'm asking you.

Brenda: What are you doing?

Jax: I don't have a promise ring or an I'd. Bracelet --

[Brenda laughs]

Jax: But some men have all of those things and don't honor their commitments. See, I want to give you what truly matters -- my heart -- if you'll have it.

Brenda: Of course I will.

Jax: I pledge to love and honor you and not date other girls.

[Brenda laughs]

Jax: So in my heart, from this day forward, you will be my girl.

Brenda: I pledge my heart to you, too. You can kiss me if you want.

Carly: Ok, let's stop for tonight because if I see one more bad location for my new club, I swear I'm going to sink into a deep, dark depression.

Ric: You know, that old, abandoned warehouse on river street had some possibilities.

Carly: As a rec room or a garage.

Ric: We could renovate.

Carly: You know, we'd have to end up tearing that whole thing down. You know, the only thing that even interests me right now is the basement at Kelly's. Look, it's just -- I don't understand why the blueprints don't match the space that's down there. You know, we should just sledgehammer through the wall and find out what the whole, big secret is.

Ric: Or we could buy the old bottling plant on 10th street.

Carly: Oh, forget it, ok? I want my club to be unique. I want it to have something interesting that people want to talk about.

Ric: Look, you're going to make it unique. Whatever -- whatever location you choose, you're going to bring your own individual style to it.

Carly: Yeah. Oh, thanks. You know, for a minute, I stopped worrying about Sonny.

Ric: Maybe you're too distracted to make a decision.

Carly: Maybe. But, you know, I just don't think I've found the right place yet.

Ric: You know, you could -- could build the club from the ground up.

Carly: Yeah, if I had half a million just floating around --

Ric: Oh, come on, look.

Carly: Extra. What?

Ric: Sonny's coffee warehouse is almost finished. He'll have -- he has plenty of money to afford it.

Carly: Ok, it's bad enough that Sonny's just giving me this club like it's some piece of jewelry just because I want it. I at least want to make a return on his investment, and that means I have to be careful about the start-up costs.

Ric: Will Sonny be able to afford it without using his offshore accounts?

Carly: I have no idea.

Ric: I'm sure any money that he invests is going to be clean. He would never use your club to launder illegal profits.

Carly: No, he wouldn't.

Ric: You know, Sonny's an amazing businessman. Has he ever considered turning all of his enterprises as legitimate as the coffee trade?

Carly: It can't happen.

Ric: Yes, it can.

[Phone rings]

Sonny: Hello. Well, where'd she go? Damn it, Johnny. You know what? All right, listen. See if you can pick up the trail.

[Phone rings]

Sonny: Jason?

Jason: Yeah. What's up?

Sonny: Johnny called. This Ida woman got away from him. Not something your average senior citizen could do.

Jason: She must have experience with this kind of thing.

Sonny: Yeah, she's probably on her way to the Quartermaines' right now. You need to get that on film.

Jason: I got it covered. I'll be ready when Ida shows up.

A.J.: Hey, Skye, it's A.J. Dad told me you left the hospital with Coleman. I know you're upset about Brenda and Jax. You have every reason to be. I just -- I don't want to see you hurt yourself, ok, so would you call me when you get in, please?

Courtney: Hi.

A.J.: What are you doing here?

Courtney: Did you mean what you've been telling me -- that you really are the person I thought I loved?

A.J.: Of course I meant it.

Courtney: Good. Because I'm going to give you the chance to prove it to me.

Brenda: Jax?

Taggert: Freeze. That's her. Thanks for the tip. Me and Ms. Barrett are going back to Port Charles to be charged.

Brenda: Jax, you ok?

Taggert: And you, Mr. Jax, have been aiding and abetting a criminal suspect.

Brenda: Jax, no. No!

[Brenda screams]

Jax: What's wrong? You all right?

Brenda: Yeah, I'm fine. It's just, you know, my stupid bad dreams. It's nothing. Look at you. You're all dressed up. Where are you going?

Jax: Well, I've been -- I've been busy.

Brenda: Oh.

Jax: Yeah. It's not quite ready yet, but --

Brenda: What?

Jax: I think you'll still enjoy the surprise.

Brenda: It's a surprise?

Jax: Uh-huh.

Brenda: What is it?

Jax: Well, come here. I'll show you.

Brenda: What is it? What's the surprise?

Jax: It's part one of our celebration.

Brenda: Ah -- ooh. What's part two?

Jax: Take you dancing.

Brenda: Oh, really? Where?

Jax: I'm not going to tell you.

Brenda: The beach? Restaurant? A club?

Jax: I'm not --

Brenda: Outside?

Jax: I'm not going to tell you, ok? Now, I have a few more things to do, and can you be ready by the time I get back?

Brenda: Can I be ready?

Jax: All right.

Brenda: Ok.

Jax: I'll see you soon.

Ric: You know, your husband has extensive legitimate holdings.

Carly: I'm not real comfortable discussing Sonny's business. And the truth is I don't even know that much about it.

Ric: Well, I know. That's not surprising. Sonny would be a fool to involve you in something illegal. What he may not realize is that there are certain strategies that could help him legitimize his entire business.

Carly: Ok. Don't -- don't even go there.

Ric: Why? Why? Why not?

Carly: Because Sonny has tried to get out of the business before, and he can't. He is too far into it. I even tried to force him out, and it was a disaster. He can't get out.

Ric: Well, that's because he hasn't had somebody to structure the deal and help him transition away from this without repercussions from old associates.

Carly: , And you can do that?

Ric: Sonny's a challenge.

Carly: Yeah?

Ric: Yes, you know that look, I see -- I see what he could be worth and what I could be worth if I help manage to transition him into legitimate holdings and investments. You know, and what about you, huh? You said that you tried getting Sonny out.

Carly: And I'm not making that mistake again.

Ric: Maybe it wasn't a mistake, Carly.

Carly: Ok, the way I did it, it was a full-blown disaster.

Ric: Ok, so you like this life, hmm? You have a child, and you don't ever wonder what it would be like if Sonny were the C.E.O. of a perfectly legal corporation?

Carly: I know who Sonny is. Ok, I know what he wants and how he lives, and I've made peace with that.

Ric: Ok. The tradeoff is worth it?

Carly: I grew up in Florida in a trailer park. Ok, my mom was a secretary. I thought my fast track to success was being a physical therapist. I did a lot of things wrong, Ric. I made a lot of mistakes, and then I met Sonny. And he could have been all wrong, and he turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me. He's ruthless. I know this. He's controlling, and I certainly wouldn't want to be his enemy. But he loves me and I love him exactly the way that he is.

Ric: What if you could have more? What if you could have Sonny and not be afraid?

Courtney: You used to say that I made you a better person.

A.J.: That's true.

Courtney: And all the things that your family did to you, they were in the past. And you learned how to be caring and considerate.

A.J.: I cared about a lot of things for the first time because of you.

Courtney: Well, when you tried to convince me to come back to you, you told me that you could be the kind of man who would do the right thing.

A.J.: For you, always.

Courtney: What about for other people?

A.J.: Like who?

Courtney: Sonny and Jason.

A.J.: What a surprise.

Courtney: Scott Baldwin is trying to blame them for Alcazar's killing, and, A.J., your testimony --

A.J.: Hey, I told the police -- I told Baldwin what I saw, and that was Jason behind the wheel of Alcazar's limo, ok? It happened. I didn't make it up.

Courtney: Yeah, but you couldn't let it rest, could you?

A.J.: What exactly are you accusing me of?

Courtney: Skye's a wreck. Ok, everybody knows that she's lying, and you just won't let her admit it. You're pushing her to stick to her story, aren't you?

A.J.: What about the eyewitness? You know, the lady who saw everything from the window across the street?

Courtney: Well, you could pay her to change her story.

A.J.: Are you asking me to bribe this woman?

Courtney: You've done illegal things before, A.J. ok, except this time, it would be for a good cause. You could get the eyewitness to claim that -- that she accused Brenda and Jason because she wanted publicity, her name in the paper or her face on the news. I mean, it's probably the truth anyhow.

A.J.: Maybe. There's something that you're going to have to do for me.

Luke: What a surprise.

Summer: I thought you agreed to stop following me.

Luke: I did and I'm not. I'm just passing through here.

Summer: If you say so.

Luke: What's that?

Summer: Well, I decided to go to P.C.U. And check out some of their classes.

Luke: Good. How'd it go?

Summer: All right, I guess. I didn't sign up for anything, but I'm definitely intrigued.

Luke: Did you get caught up in the collegiate spirit?

Summer: Maybe so. I met somebody there, treated me like a real person. I liked it. Kind of forgot how it felt just to be myself.

Luke: What kind of courses are you interested in?

Summer: Well, I don't know. I kind of thought maybe I'd stick close to home, so I was thinking maybe acting.

Luke: Acting? That means you don't enjoy being yourself.

Summer: No. The real me enjoys pretending sometimes.

Luke: Well, acting is a good way to hide.

Summer: You know, I'm really sorry if you don't like it, but you don't get to pick my classes.

Luke: Oh, I don't want to pick your classes. I didn't say I didn't like it. I'm just saying that a for acting is a good beginning, but there's a lot of interesting, you know, courses through the rest of the alphabet.

Summer: Ok. Try t -- for theater. Is that better? You know, the real me does enjoy pretending sometimes to get outside of myself, be other people.

Luke: I'd like to make a contribution to your education.

[Door opens]

Carly: Hey.

Sonny: Hey.

Carly: How are things?

Sonny: No change, you know? Where were you?

Carly: Out saving you money.

Sonny: Wow, that's a first.

[Carly chuckles]

Carly: So, Ric and I were looking at club locations and came up empty-handed, and he suggested that you build me one. And I very responsibly said no, too -- too expensive.

Sonny: Good, good, since the warehouse is above budget and behind schedule.

Ric: Well, I've watched it go up and that extra space you put in for shipping and receiving should increase productivity at least by 30%. You'll be ahead in no time.

Carly: That was your idea, wasn't it, Sonny?

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: Ric's right.

Sonny: Yeah? About what?

Carly: He thinks you're an amazing businessman.

Ric: Indeed you are. You know, I think it's a good idea that you found an investment to go into that'll ultimately allow you to get away from the mob once and for all.

Sonny: I don't think I asked for your opinion. You see, my business is none of your business. Do you understand what I'm saying, Ric?

Faith: You're early.

Ned: I'm right on time. No backup squad tonight?

Faith: They're -- they're really more decorative than useful. Most men are. Besides, I can handle myself.

Ned: That's good to know. I'm not looking for a partner I have to coddle.

Faith: Ned Ashton. You have a very interesting past. You're a very powerful businessman, you created a stir in the music industry, and you've recently returned to the family corporation. You like to be in charge.

Ned: When I decide on a goal, I like to follow through.

Faith: So do I. Isn't it convenient that we have the very same goal?

Ned: Bringing down Sonny Corinthos.

Faith: I've been thinking about what you said before.

Ned: My position hasn't changed. I am willing to put up the money to compete with Sonny and ultimately drive him out of business.

Faith: It won't come cheap.

Ned: You care about the money.

Faith: Who doesn't?

Ned: Well, a million dollars can't buy confidence or trust.

Faith: And partners should trust each other?

Ned: Yeah. It helps.

Faith: Well, I trust that you can do anything you set your mind to.

Ned: Well, then, let's get started, shall we?

Faith: Just be sure to take it slow and sweet. Don't get me wrong -- I want Sonny gone. But I will need some additional perks and assurances to prove that you are trustworthy.

Ned: What exactly would it take to satisfy you?

Faith: You go first.

Ned: I think I will.

Ned: Here's to mutual satisfaction.

Brenda: Hi. Can you connect me with the Port Charles police department? No, it's not an emergency.

[Phone rings]

Taggert: Lt. Taggert.

Brenda: Hi, Taggert. It's Brenda. Don't bother with the phone trace.

Taggert: How's the weather where you and Jax are?

Brenda: How's the investigation going? Any new suspects?

Taggert: We don't need one. You killed Alcazar.

Brenda: Oh. So nothing new?

Taggert: We're making progress. You may have got away, but Sonny and Jason weren't so lucky.

Brenda: What does that mean?

Taggert: They've been arrested for conspiracy. Scott's requested --

[dial tone]

Taggert: Hello?

Officer: She hung up too fast. We couldn't get it.

Taggert: That's ok. I think she heard enough.

A.J.: I tried to prove my love to you a thousand different ways, and the first chance you get, you go run to my brother, the big hero --

Courtney: You know -- you know that isn't true, A.J. --

A.J.: It is true. How big a hero is he going to look when he's in prison? Because that's what's going to happen. And, Courtney, there's nothing you can do about it.

Courtney: But there is something that you can do.

A.J.: You want me to save my brother? Hmm? Want me to clear him? Stop the divorce, come back to me, and never see him again.

Summer: I do not want your charity.

Luke: This ain't charity, baby. I'm offering you a job.

Summer: And we've been through that, too. I don't want to hostess at your club.

Luke: I'm not talking about hostessing. Wait.

Luke: I want time with my wife. I mean, I carry her always in here, but that's not enough for me. I want to see her, talk to her, be with her.

Summer: You can't.

Luke: I can pretend if you'll help me.

Summer: We tried that. It didn't work.

Luke: I know. Here's the deal -- go to college. Get a great life going for yourself. You deserve it. Take whatever classes you want. Date students, teachers, whatever.

Summer: Gee, thanks. That's very generous of you with my time.

Luke: Yeah, well, you -- it is your time, and it's really none of my business. You can be as suspicious and as secretive as you want.

Summer: So, what's the catch?

Luke: There's no catch. When you're with me, I pay you to keep the game going. It's an acting job. From now on, when you're with me, you're Laura. My Laura.

Sonny: Where do you get off filling my wife's head with this garbage?

Ric: You know, with all due respect, Mr. Corinthos, I am going to be discussing a certain amount of business with your wife. Now, if I crossed some sort of line I wasn't aware of, I am sorry.

Sonny: Ok, you --

Ric: I meant no disrespect.

Sonny: You do know that I keep my business separate from my family. So what do you do the first time you're alone with my wife? You start talking business.

Ric: I'm sorry. It was my mistake. It won't happen again.

Sonny: Well, it's not going to happen again, that's for sure. Now, I need you to leave. I need to spend time --

Carly: Sonny --

Sonny: What do you mean, "Sonny"? I need to spend time with my wife.

Carly: Well, that was blunt.

Sonny: Well, he didn't get the message.

Carly: I think he does now.

Sonny: You do you understand he's working you, don't you? For whatever reason, which I don't know, he wants me to need him, so he's trying to sell you on some fantasy that his brilliant legal strategy can turn me into a law-abiding citizen. That's not going to happen in a million years.

Carly: What if he could? What if he could?

Sonny: "What if he could?" It's not going to happen. It's -- he's lying. He's only telling you what he thinks you want to hear. Unless maybe you said something. Maybe you brought up that you're trying to get me out of the business.

Carly: Oh, no, no, no, no. Ok, you know what? I have learned my lesson. I know how you live your life and I know what you're comfortable with, and I'm never going to try and change that again.

Sonny: What do you want?

Carly: What do I want?

Sonny: Yeah --

Carly: If I had my choice?

Sonny: Yes, yes, yes.

Carly: Well, yeah, I'd want you out of the business. Come on, I want you to live a long, long life, ok? And I hate the fact that you're in danger and you're threatened because of your business and because that you have enemies. I hate that the PCPD is always breathing down your neck. But that's your life, and I accept it because I love you.

Courtney: Do you know what you're doing?

A.J.: You came to me, ask me to lie to cover for murder.

Courtney: I am asking you to help your brother, who helped you when you were in trouble, A.J.

A.J.: Don't you ever tell me I owe my brother for anything.

Courtney: Jason covered for you after you burned down the Oasis.

A.J.: No, no, no, no. Hey, he didn't cover for me. He covered for you. You opened the door. He walked right in. And from then on, he was like a bad rash. I couldn't get rid of him. You turn to him for everything.

Courtney: God, A.J., I wouldn't have needed saving if you hadn't stalked me.

A.J.: You know what? He would have found some other way to save you because that's what he does. Don't you understand? And I'll bet that's what you wanted from the moment you first saw him. Isn't that right?

Courtney: I didn't even know him when I first saw him.

A.J.: You want to help my brother? You want to save him? Then you're going to stop right now and you're going to come clean. Tell me the truth. I want to know. When did you first want him? When did you look into his eyes and realize, "uh-oh, I married the wrong brother"?

Courtney: It didn't happen when I looked into Jason's eyes, A.J. It happened when I looked into yours. The night that I found out that you stalked me and then you tried to lie your way out of it, the night that I realized that all your tenderness and concern, all the ways that you said that you loved me, all the times that you said you needed me -- it was all fake. God, you can turn it on anytime you want to cover up any hideous thing that you do.

A.J.: You don't like it when I lie? Then what are you doing here, huh? You're asking me to lie for my brother. I told you what it's going to cost -- you back with me.

Courtney: Why do you want me knowing that I hate you?

A.J.: You see, that's where the fun's going to come in. Because you're going to have to convince me you don't. Ok. You are going to be my sweet, affectionate, loving wife again.

Ida: Our deal is off.

Coleman: What are you doing here? You're supposed to be in police custody, Ida.

Ida: When I agreed to frame Brenda Barrett, I didn't count on Sonny Corinthos trying to murder me to retaliate.

Coleman: Wait, wait, wait. What happened?

Ida: I'm running for my life here. That lady P.I. that tracked me down in Canada warned me that Sonny is closing in and I better skip town.

Coleman: You got out of police custody?

Ida: Yeah.

Coleman: How'd you do that?

Ida: I gave them the slip. If the P.I. could find me, so could Sonny.

Coleman: You're not going to quit now.

Ida: Like hell I'm not. I'm out of here. Wish I'd never been in that room across from the hotel the night of the murder. You. It was you.

Jax: I'm back! Brenda?

Jax: Brenda?

Woman: Welcome to flight 509. We'll be landing in Port Charles, new York, in just a few short hours.

>> On the next "General Hospital" -- 

A.J.: How far you willing to go for the wonder boy?

Oh.

Sonny: I know it costs you a lot to be with me.

Carly: It's worth it.

Scott: How was your trip?

Brenda: I am here to turn myself in.

Ida: You don't remember if you killed him or not, do you?
