>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Luke: From now on, when you're with me, you're Laura.

Courtney: How can you just stand around and watch A.J. frame Sonny and Jason?

Carly: Jason's not going to be real thankful if you interfere.

Jax: You have no business here.

Sonny: Where's Brenda?

Ida: Number five. She killed Alcazar.

Brenda: She picked me out of the lineup.

Jax: I'm going to take care of it.

Coleman: What is it?

Skye: Divorce papers.

Scott: Charging you as an accomplice.

Elizabeth: So you didn't say much the other night about your new job at E.L.Q. How do you like it?

Zander: It's -- it's okay.

Elizabeth: And what's the job description?

Zander: Assistant to the C.E.O.

Elizabeth: Ooh.

Zander: Errand boy. I deliver packages. I take records down to the county office to be recorded. I do whatever Nedís secretary tells me to do.

Elizabeth: Oh. Well, at least you have a job.

Zander: And a paycheck. And Nedís been pretty good about answering questions and explaining the business. At least I don't have to worry about getting shot or arrested.

Elizabeth: You don't miss the whole outlaw life just a little bit?

Zander: I miss it all the time. You know, the rush, the danger, never knowing what's coming next. I mean, compared to that, this job seems kind of tame.

Elizabeth: Well, after what you've been through, I'd think tame would be a good thing.

Zander: Well, I want a future, you know, and that life -- it burns you out, or worse.

Elizabeth: Yeah, well, for what it's worth, I think you made the right decision.

Zander: It's worth a lot, actually. See you later.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Luke: Hey, Zander.

Zander: What's up?

Luke: Hi, Elizabeth. Look, I -- I'm going out of town for a few days. Tell Bobbie I'll replace this when I get back.

Lucky: Dad! Hey.

Luke: Oh, good timing. Look, I'm going out of town for, I don't know -- I'm not sure how long I'll be gone.

Lucky: Nikolas didn't get ahold of you?

Luke: What's up?

Lucky: Well, he went off to London. He went and saw Mom's doctors. Apparently, there's a problem.

Nikolas: Hey. Sorry I'm late. The flight got delayed.

Luke: How is Laura?

Nikolas: Not good. She's still catatonic. The doctors say she's getting worse. They want to put her in a drug therapy, I would have approved it, but I wanted to check with the both of you, so -- what do you want to do?

Gia: I've been researching like crazy. I spent hours at the P.C.U. law library. The good news is I found a couple of cases on point. I think they'll help with Brenda's defense.

Alexis: Can I look that over later?

Gia: There was a recent New York Supreme Court case where the defendant was pretty much in the same situation. And I figured, you know, since Scott's been doing a lot of questionable things --

Alexis: Case law isn't going to be able to help Brenda, and you can forget about procedure.

Gia: But Scott's been doing a lot --

Alexis: Gia, there's an eyewitness. A woman named Ida Warren picked Brenda out of a lineup, and no one's been able to shake her story. Now, either I discredit it or Scott gets a conviction, and I can't get anywhere near her because he's got her sequestered and he's jumping through hoops of fire to keep me from getting access.

Skye: Hey, what is going on?

Scott: Well, I'm here for Jason and Brenda's arraignment. I don't know about you.

Skye: Yeah, I've been waiting for notice to appear, but it hasn't come. You can't arraign them without me.

Scott: They're just entering a plea, that's all. You know, there's no testimony, there's no witnesses, just "not guilty." That simple. So I don't need you. In fact, it'd be better if you weren't here.

Skye: Okay, I want to see this.

Scott: Yeah, well, you know what? It's -- it'll undermine your whole testimony. It's going to make it look like you got a grudge against Brenda. You know what? The way that things are going, I probably won't even call you.

Skye: What are you talking about?

Scott: Well, I got enough evidence to put them away without your testimony.

Skye: Like what?

Scott: Like a credible sober witness.

Courtney: Jason. What's wrong?

Jason: You tried to save me. That can't happen again.

Carly: Hey.

Sonny: What are you doing?

Carly: I'm rethinking my plan to use Kellyís basement for my club.

Sonny: Well, you were all excited about the old speakeasy. What's wrong?

Carly: I just don't think it was a good idea to break down that wall. You know, it's something very dark about that place, and sad, like something very bad happened there.

Sonny: So, since when did you get superstitious?

Carly: I'm not. I just don't like the idea of the past repeating itself.

Sonny: Carly, it's your club. Build it wherever you want. I got to go.

Carly: Where? Where are you going?

Sonny: I got to talk to Jason about the arraignment.

Carly: Oh. You know Jason would do anything for you.

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: Right? That he would die for you. He's ready to sacrifice himself and take the blame for Brenda and --

Sonny: Carly, I wouldn't ask. I'll do whatever I can to get Jason out of this. I'll see you.

Carly: Bye.

Sonny: Bad idea.

Nikolas: The doctors said no contact, so I had to watch from a place where Mom couldn't see me.

Luke: How bad is she?

Nikolas: Well, she's hooked up to IVs, she doesn't eat, doesn't move. In fact, there's been no interaction with the outside world in any way, shape, or form. There's been no change in months.

Luke: Since I tried to get her out of there.

Lucky: Hey, we all thought that you were doing the right thing.

Luke: It was a mistake.

Nikolas: Listen, Luke, the doctors -- well, the doctors think the drugs will help, all right? Nothing else has, so I just -- I need to know from the both of you if it's okay if we put her in the drug therapy.

Lucky: You know, Dad, they've been asking about this for a while. I was just hoping that mom might come out of it on her own. But if there's no change -- what do you think?

Luke: I don't want her drugged. I'll -- I'll call the doctors and talk to them, see what it is they think they can achieve with this therapy.

Nikolas: Okay. I'll give you the number, call Dr. Andover, and --

Luke: Okay, Nik, I got the number. I just -- I've been putting off calling because every time I do, Dr. Andover says that I make her worse. But I can't stay out of it any longer, I guess. Thanks for making that trip.

Nikolas: You bet.

Luke: I'll take it from here.

Skye: I am an eyewitness. You need my testimony.

Scott: You're a drunk and you're a scorned wife. Everybody knows how you feel about Brenda. You've been broadcasting it all over town, for crying out loud. If Alexis gets you up on the stand and trips you up, it's going to ruin my case.

Skye: Hey, look, I am clear on what happened the night of Alcazar's murder, okay? I'm not going to let anybody shake my testimony. I understand that Ida is your key witness, but your case will only be stronger with my corroboration.

Scott: Well, how do I know you're not going to show up drunk like when you gave your statement to Mac?

Skye: I -- look, I won't drink the day I testify, okay? I won't let anything weaken your case. Nothing is more important to me than seeing Brenda convicted.

Sonny: You guys didn't walk out of the police station holding hands, did you?

Jax: Look, we don't have to explain ourselves to you.

Sonny: Okay, Brenda is on trial for murder. Adultery doesn't look good to the jury, especially you guys walking around holding hands -- with a married man, if you know what I'm saying.

Jax: Skye and I are divorced.

Sonny: Brenda and Jason aren't.

Brenda: Wait, hold on. Jason and I left the police station together, and we planned on meeting be back here, so -- you're right. We're not going to be seen in public anymore until the trial is over.

Jax: Why don't we discuss it after the arraignment? All right. I'll see you later.

Brenda: I'm going to get dressed.

Sonny: I know you got to change. Just give me a second. I just want -- you're in serious trouble, all right?

Brenda: Yeah.

Sonny: So is Jason. And because he tried to save you, you owe him.

Brenda: I know.

Sonny: Okay, the only -- your freedom depends on how you guys work this marriage thing.

Brenda: Don't worry. We're going to do all that.

Sonny: Okay, just this is not a good start. As a matter of fact, do you have any idea where Jason is?

Brenda: No.

Jason: This is the best time, I mean, that I can remember. And I don't want to give you up. But the next time you try to save me or put yourself in danger, I'll walk away without looking back.

Courtney: I was trying to --

Jason: I know what you were trying to do. You put yourself on the line for me, and that's nice. You can't do it again. What I do is dangerous. It's what I chose. The risks are mine, not yours. I can't be with you knowing you could hurt yourself or put yourself in danger because of me.

Courtney: But I just can't pretend not to care what happens to you, Jason.

Jason: Courtney, you can care all you want, and I'm glad you care. But don't act on it. I mean, you followed me down to the PCPD after I asked you not to. You can't do that kind of stuff. You can't come after me and try to save me or help me when I'm in trouble.

Courtney: This is completely unfair.

Jason: You know my job -- I can't do my job or stay professional if I'm worried about you always putting yourself at risk. It's a distraction I can't afford. So the only way that this is going to work is if you promise not to get involved.

Courtney: I hate this.

Jason: Well, if it's easier, I'll just -- I'll just go.

Courtney: Jason? I won't get involved, okay?

Jason: Look, I got to go. I got to meet Brenda before the arraignment, and I don't -- I don't know when I'll be back.

Courtney: Well, whenever you can get back, I'll be waiting.

Courtney: I love you.

Summer: Hey. I'm late. I know. I'm sorry. But whatever this mysterious thing is that you got planned, I am good to go.

Luke: I've changed my mind. The job offer's off. Go on home.

Summer: My first rule is that I don't accept charity, and my second rule is that I pay back my debts. And I owe you.

Luke: No, you donít.

Summer: I owe you for many things. Most importantly, for forcing me to open my eyes and turn my life around.

Luke: Sweetheart, nobody forces anybody to do anything. You're a great girl. I wish you nothing but the best. But this isn't going to work.

Summer: You know, yesterday you were really excited about whatever it was you had planned for us, and today you're sitting here acting like you don't even know me.

Luke: I was going to ask you to play my wife again. I was going to take you to a place where she and I were very happy. I was going to pretend that I was with her. It's pathetic really. Never mind that the last time we tried it at Wyndham's department store it didn't work. I've never been one to give up a bad idea without beating it over the head.

Summer: So you know that it worked the first time we tried it at your club. I was Laura to you then.

Luke: Let's don't talk it to death. You're great, you're beautiful, you're sweet, you're smart. But you're not my wife.

Summer: It can be as real as you want to make it. I'm really good at pretending to be other people. I've had a lot of practice with guys that I don't care about nearly as much as I care about you. Let me be Laura for you.

Taggert: Looking for something? Maybe I could help you find it.

Gia: I'm looking for the gift receipt for the sweater you got Mom for Christmas.

Taggert: Why? She didn't like it?

Gia: It didn't fit. I have to exchange it. She didn't want you to know.

Taggert: Next time you want to go through my stuff, maybe you could call first, all right?

Gia: Hello? I'm doing you a favor here. Talk about sensitive. Sheesh. I am going to law school, you know.

Taggert: Hey, hey.

Gia: God forbid I pick up any practical tips from my own older brother.

Taggert: Don't flip through police files, all right?

Gia: It's not like I could read anything anyway. You write like a drunken chicken. Maybe you should have been a doctor.

Taggert: Hey, I said don't go through the police files. What's wrong with you?

Gia: Let me help you look for the receipt, okay? We'll be here all day otherwise.

Taggert: Okay. You know? I don't even know what I'm looking for. And it's a good thing you're going to that law school. You'll realize how illegal some of these stunts are that you're pulling.

Gia: You're just mad because I'll be able to bust you if you start skating on the rules to get a break on some case.

Taggert: Take it.

Gia: You're welcome, Marcus. Gosh, you're always tripping all over yourself to thank me, aren't you?

Taggert: Thank you.

Gia: You're welcome.

Taggert: Hey, that law school thing -- I think it's great. I'm real proud of you, Sis. You're going to make a great lawyer.

Gia: Thank you, Marcus. I can't wait to prove myself. I got to go.

Taggert: Mm-hmm.

Ric: Hey.

Carly: Hey.

Ric: I'm alone.

Carly: You didn't see Sonny downstairs, did you?

Ric: No.

Carly: No. It's not a problem. Come. Come on in.

Ric: Is there -- is there something wrong?

Carly: Well, not that Sonny would admit it, but he's worried that something's going to go wrong.

Ric: Looks like you're a little concerned as well.

Carly: I just -- I keep thinking about that story that Catherine told us, how Marco -- he lost everything when he lost his best friend. That's how Sonny would be if he lost Jason. They're more brothers than they are partners. Sonny needs Jason. So do I.

Ric: Well, it's obvious the two of you are very close.

Carly: He's my best friend. Jason holds it all together for me and for Sonny, and, you know, when he's gone, our lives -- they just implode. He's part of us.

Ric: If it's any consolation, I understand that the state's case against Brenda is much stronger than that against Jasonís.

Carly: So? They're trying them together.

Ric: Well, that's because they're husband and wife.

Carly: But that's a good thing, right? That way they can't be compelled to testify against one another.

Ric: Not necessarily to Jason's advantage. Look, if Jason were to testify against Brenda, there is a chance that he could walk away from this without a scratch.

Sonny: Brenda's upstairs. She showed up with Jax. Now, let me tell you something. Jax does not get the concept of discretion. If he keeps parading Brenda around, she's going to look guilty. Now, she does whatever he wants. You know what I'm saying?

Jason: Yes.

Sonny: You're going to have to keep him away from her. I don't know how you're going to do it, but you got to do it.

Jason: But, Sonny, I tried to tell her a hundred times. That woman doesn't listen to me.

Sonny: Well, you got to make her listen. You're on the line here. I don't know, you know? I don't know what's happening. I asked you to go after Alcazar, you risked your life to get her away from him, and now you're stuck in this marriage.

Jason: Look, I -- hey, I may not like her, but I saw her at the crime scene. I couldn't just leave her there.

Sonny: Okay, we got to figure out how we're going to get out of this. We got to find out who paid that eyewitness. I could have -- ah! I could have sworn it was A.J.

Jason: Ida tried to show up, and I scared her off.

Sonny: What you talking about? What do you mean?

Jason: Well, A.J. was at the Quartermaines'.

Sonny: Right.

Jason: Okay, and I was out -- I was out on the terrace ready to take pictures of him if Ida showed up, and then Courtney showed up trying to get him to back off.

Sonny: Courtney went after that pig for you, me, and Brenda?

Jason: I got her out of there before A.J. could do anything.

Sonny: Look, Courtney should not -- Courtney should not be anywhere near this. She's my sister. She's clean. She's innocent. She went through a lot of pain because of A.J. She's not going to hurt like that again, Jason. My business, my enemies -- that will never touch my sister.

A.J.: You here for the arraignment?

Courtney: That's right.

A.J.: You going to sit in that courtroom and listen to Jason lie?

Courtney: Leave me alone.

A.J.: You know, Jason interrupted us before we had a chance to complete our bargain. My offer still stands, Courtney. I will retract my statement. Jason will walk. All you have to do is agree to come back to me and never see him again. You can save him. It's up to you.

Courtney: If I were to take your deal, you'd have to do a lot more than change your story about Jason driving Alcazar's limo.

A.J.: How much more?

Courtney: No, you'd have to figure out a way to cancel out Ida's testimony, too.

A.J.: And how can I do that?

Courtney: Oh, come on, A.J. You have money now. There must be something you can do.

A.J.: The only thing I can control is what I say and only if you make it worth my while.

Courtney: Forget it. I don't trust you. You know, even if you did change your testimony, you would find some other way to hurt Jason. You'll never stop hating Jason, will you? I mean, you'd hate him even more if I came back to you because you'd know that I didn't want to be with you.

A.J.: You came to me, remember?

Courtney: Yeah, well, we've all made mistakes. The difference is I learn from mine. I'll never ask you for anything again.

A.J.: Poor Jason. He's going to pay for your sudden attack of pride.

Courtney: Well, here's something else that I learned, A.J. -- Jason doesn't need me to save him because, unlike you, Jason is strong enough to save himself.

Jason: Brenda, come on. We're late.

Brenda: Coming.

Jason: Let's go.

Brenda: I'm coming.

Jason: Will you come down now, or I'm going to come and get you.

Brenda: Would you -- I said I'm coming. I'm sorry. I've never gotten dressed to be arraigned for murder.

Jason: Okay.

Brenda: Does this look okay? Oh, why am I asking you? Forget it.

Jason: You know what? It's a legal proceeding. There's four words you need to know -- "not guilty, Your Honor." That's it. That's all we have to say.

Brenda: Oh, yeah. You know, I know that. I thought this was serious, you know? This is about our freedom, right?

Jason: Yes.

Brenda: Well, you know, I could be anywhere in the world with Jax right now. Instead, I decided to come back here and go on trial with my husband, so you can be nice to me, you know --

Jason: Okay, just please -- everything's going to be okay.

Brenda: No, forget it. Don't be nice. I mean, it just sounds weird coming out of your mouth.

Jason: You know what? Fine, okay? That's great.

Brenda: Let's just get this over with.

Jason: Yes, we're going to get this over with. Can you just be quiet for a minute? All that matters is getting out of this. And the only way we're going to do it is to stay together, okay?

Brenda: Okay.

Jason: From now on, it's you and me. We don't fight in public. We stay close even though we can't stand each other.

Brenda: All right. Fine. I know, I know. We have to act married. I know how to act married. I mean, not really, because I've never been married before, but --

Jason: Okay.

Brenda: All right, let's go.

Jason: Grab your coat.

Brenda: Are you sure this is okay?

Jason: Yes, it's fine.

Brenda: Because I have this one other thing, though.

Jason: Really. Look, I'm wearing this stupid thing. Come on.

Carly: Will you hear Ric out? He is a lawyer, and what he knows may help Jason. That's what you want, isn't it?

Sonny: What's your idea?

Ric: Well, all of the evidence clearly points to Brenda as Alcazar's killer. Jason's an accessory after the fact at best. He could plead out in exchange for his testimony against Brenda. Now, any good attorney worth his salt can go to the D.A., cut a deal, and get the murder charge against Jason dropped. He'll walk with probation on a lesser offense.

Sonny: So that's your solution? Encourage Jason to testify against his own wife and send her to prison?

Ric: Well, they're represented by two totally separate attorneys, are they not?

Sonny: Brenda's got Alexis Davis. She's the best there is.

Ric: Mm-hmm. So why isn't she representing Jason?

Sonny: Because she hates him. She thinks that, you know -- she blames him for her sister's death.

Ric: Well, Alexis --

Sonny: There's no way she's going to represent him, too.

Ric: Alexis' sole professional interest is going to be the welfare of her client. Now, if you say she's such a great attorney, she's going to turn that case against Jason unless Jason's attorney can find a way to protect him.

Sonny: Well, I hired Thomas Cassidy.

Ric: Well, that's fine. I'm sure he'll tell you the very same thing, so --

Sonny: Yeah.

Ric: But Jason could help himself and possibly even help Brenda if he testifies against her.

Sonny: And how would that work?

Ric: Ahem. All right. If Jason and Brenda are no longer co-defendants, the D.A.'s conspiracy charge falls apart. Look, Brenda can plead temporary insanity. She can plead self-defense. Look, the battered woman's defense has worked very effectively in any number of cases in this jur--

Sonny: Enough. I don't want to hear what -- I -- Brenda and Jason will be tried together and they will be found not guilty. End of story.

Faith: I assume that's for me? From Ned Ashton?

Zander: Yeah. Wait a second. Don't I know you? Yes. You're Roscoís wife.

Faith: My husband is dead, but thank you for your condolences.

Zander: Why would Ned be sending a package to you?

Jax: Uh-huh. Right. That's very good. Okay. Bye.

Skye: Well, I certainly am surprised to see you here.

Jax: Why is that?

Skye: Well, having Brenda's lover in the courtroom will make her seem a little less than virtuous, or is that common knowledge already?

Jax: The only reason Brenda is going through all of this is because of your lies.

Skye: No, Brenda is going through this because she killed Alcazar.

Jax: Right.

Skye: But you know what? Maybe it is better that you're here. Maybe you'll finally get to see Brenda for what she is and not the saint that you seem to believe.

Jax: All right, this is pointless, so --

Skye: No, I think we have some legal matters of our own to discuss, like that surprise divorce decree you dropped in my lap?

Jax: The divorce is a done deal.

Skye: That decree's not worth the paper it's printed on. No state in the country will recognize that as valid.

Jax: Well, you should check with an attorney, because that divorce is legal and binding. All that's left is division of the property. Look, Skye, I don't -- I don't want to fight with you and I don't want to hurt you anymore.

Skye: Too late.

Jax: We both made mistakes. But there's nothing left to salvage here, so the best thing we can do is just let each other go.

Skye: Yeah, well, you know what? You never really gave me that option, did you? You just ran off with your lover -- no discussion, no warning. Forgive me if I'm not quite as blithe as you are.

Jax: You know what? If you want to hate someone, Skye, then hate me. But don't take this out on Brenda by perpetuating a lie.

Skye: No, you lied! You promised to love me, to cherish me, to honor me, till death do us part.

Jax: You know what, Skye? You are better than this.

Skye: Yeah, well, people do surprising things all the time, Jax. I don't think you really know anyone.

Jax: Well, I hope for your sake you turn this around before it's too late.

Bailiff: All rise.

Judge: Call the case.

Bailiff: Be seated.

Judge: Go on.

Bailiff: The state of New York vs. Brenda Barrett Morgan and Jason Morgan, et al. Will counsel please note their appearance for the record?

Man: Your Honor, Thomas Cassidy for the defendant Jason Morgan.

Alexis: Alexis Davis representing Brenda Barrett Morgan.

Scott: Scott Baldwin for the state.

Judge: Very well. This is an arraignment, and as such, we'll keep the proceedings brief. Will the defendants please rise. Brenda Barrett Morgan and Jason Morgan, you stand accused of murder in the first degree in the death of Luis Alcazar. Brenda Barrett Morgan, how do you plead?

Brenda: Not guilty, Your Honor.

Judge: Jason Morgan, how do you plead, sir?

Thomas: Your Honor, at this moment, Mr. Morgan would request a stay in these proceedings in order to confer with the district attorney with an eye on negotiating a plea bargain in exchange for his testimony against his wife.

Brenda: What?

Jason: What the hell are you talking about?

Thomas: Your Honor, may I have a moment to confer with my client?

Jason: No, no, we don't need a moment. Your Honor, this man doesn't speak for me.

Scott: Sure, he does, Your Honor. Mr. Cassidy is Mr. Morgan's attorney on record.

Jason: Your Honor, Mr. Cassidy is fired.

Ric: Would you like me to intervene? I might be able to salvage this.

Sonny: Do it.

Ric: Your Honor, my name is Ric Lansing. I'm an attorney. May I approach?

Scott: Your Honor, this is a delay tactic. This is an arraignment. Shall we get on with it?

Judge: All I need, Mr. Baldwin, is a plea from the defendant.

Ric: With all due respect, Your Honor, an arraignment is no less vital or substantial than any other part of the criminal proceeding. To deny Mr. Morgan here due process at this time would be reversible error. Now, you know it and I know it. Mr. Morgan here deserves representation, and I am substituting in as counsel of record. My client enters a plea of not guilty.

Judge: Mr. Morgan, is that your desire to substitute this gentleman in as your attorney?

Thomas: Now, listen, I have been retained to get you out of this, and I've been well compensated for it. Now, there is absolutely no evidence against you. It all points squarely to Ms. Barrett. So just let me do my job.

Jason: Your Honor, this man, Ric Lansing, is my attorney. I plead not guilty. I'm innocent. So is my wife.

Zander: Ned has no idea who you are, does he?

Faith: You don't have very much faith in your boss.

Zander: Enough to know that he wouldn't have anything to do with you if he did.

Faith: Well, Ned was the one who came looking for me. He needed an associate with my connections. We're partners.

Zander: No way.

Faith: His idea. Why are you holding a package for me, then?

Zander: Ned hates everything you're about. His girlfriend died because of you people, and as you know -- wait a second. Ned's going after Sonny, isn't he? And he's using you to do it.

Faith: Obviously, you're a very bright man. And bright guys who keep their mouth shut get rich. Bright guys who don't get dead. So how about handing me that package? Thank you. Tell your boss I'll be waiting for his call.

Luke: Here we are. I told you you'd love it.

Summer: You're kidding, right? Luke, we're on the run from Frank Smith. We've got murderers after us and we're trying to solve a mystery, and you want to stay here?

Luke: No better place to stay, darling. Who's going to look for us in this one-horse town? And just to keep things on the up-and-up.

Summer: And do you really think that people are going to buy the names Lloyd and Lucy Johnson? Why do we have to pretend to be married anyway?

Luke: We are being hunted, Laura. We need aliases.

Summer: But Lloyd and Lucy Johnson?

Luke: Well, that was the best I could come up with on such short notice.

Summer: Okay. Fine. But, you know, even people with aliases need to eat, and we're broke. How are we supposed to support ourselves?

Luke: Summer, back off a little bit. I don't remember her being quite such a nag. That Mrs. Whitaker? She seemed nice. Maybe she can help us get jobs. You don't have any problem with waiting tables, do you?

Summer: No. I suppose I could do that. What are you doing, by the way?

Luke: I am giving you the privacy a woman needs and deserves. See, we call this the wall of Jericho. You sleep here and I sleep over there. Or you sleep here and I lie awake over there, listening to you breathe and wishing I were over here with you. It's torture, really. Sweet torture.

Summer: Okay. So I get a job as Mrs. Lucy Johnson, and we hide out in this room.

Luke: Right.

Summer: For how long?

Luke: Not nearly long enough.

Summer: And what's there to do around here?

Luke: Well, there's square dancing.

Summer: Square dancing.

Luke: Yeah. And there's the old bijou movie house. We see some truly awful films, we laugh a lot, steal a few kisses, and kind of tiptoe around each other as best we can.

Summer: And then what?

Luke: And then Frank Smith's boys locate us, we go back on the run, we risk our lives, and we fall even more in love.

Summer: And what then?

Luke: Then we come back here, the wall comes down, and we finally make love. Sweet?

Summer: Sweet.

Luke: Sweet.

Gia: Hi. I'm Gia Campbell from Scott Baldwinís office. I'm supposed to prepare the witness.

Officer: Tell D.A. Baldwin to call ahead next time.

Gia: Thanks. Ida Warren, I'm assistant D.A. Gia Campbell from Scott Baldwinís office. We need to review your testimony. Alone. Sorry.

Ida: I don't know what more Mr. Baldwin could possibly want from me.

Gia: He's concerned. This is a high-profile case, as you know, and District Attorney Baldwin is afraid there's a few holes in your story. He'd like me to go over it with you again.

Ida: Okay.

Judge: The defendants, having duly entered pleas of not guilty, are bound over for trial on the date previously set forth. This court is now in recess.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Bailiff: All rise.

Sonny: You think you can get Jason acquitted?

Ric: Well, I'd be a fool to make any kind of guarantees, right?

Sonny: Good.

Ric: But I'm confident, yes.

Sonny: Because Jason's like a brother to me. If he goes away, so do you.

Brenda: Excuse us.

Skye: Moving, wasn't it, the way that Jason wouldn't testify against his wife. So selfless, so heroic. It's the kind of thing that really gets to a girl. Look at them -- so centered, so focused. Are you really sure it's just a marriage of convenience?

Brenda: Uh-uh, no. I can't let you do this.

Jason: Well, you know what? I don't think you have a choice.

Brenda: But you do.

Jason: Just because I can't stand you doesn't mean I want to testify against you.

Brenda: No, I am the one who attacked him with a knife. I mean, you need to think about this. This could be your only way out.

Jason: Brenda, do you -- do you pay attention? We agreed that we're in this together, and that means till the end.

Brenda: All right. Act married.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Summer: When are you and I supposed to have sex?

Scott: This assistant district attorney -- what did she look like?

Taggert: Give me one reason why I shouldn't throw your felonious butt in jail.

Sonny: There's $2 million in there. Give Ida my best wishes.

Carly: You just blew it royally.

Jax: My heart is given to you, Brenda. Where's yours these days?
