Courtney: Jason and Brenda will get out of this. And Sonny will find the real killer. We have to believe that.

Carly: I just wish that I hadn't broken down that wall in the cellar.

Courtney: What does that have to do with Sonny and Jason?

Carly: I know it sounds ridiculous, but something terrible happened down there. It was an old speakeasy in the 1920s, and on New Year's Eve there was a shooting and a man was killed and a family fell apart and everyone's lives were ruined.

Courtney: Carly, that was a long time ago.

Carly: How about if you go down there with me? You can walk around and just tell me what you think.

Lucky: What do you think about English Lit 101?

Elizabeth: Ooh, a lot of reading. Usually a required course. Get the big class. Grad students teach most of it, and pretty much they'll give you a good grade if you let them get back to their thesis.

Lucky: Oh. I don't know if I have any money for any class.

Elizabeth: Hmm. Losing your job at Deception really hurt you, didn't it?

Lucky: Yeah, I'm down to food and one month's rent.

Elizabeth: Well, have you talked to Nikolas about it?

Lucky: I'm not going to ask my brother to pay for my college education.

Elizabeth: What about your dad?

Lucky: He's got too many things on his mind.

Elizabeth: What about this -- "History of Photography." That sounds interesting.

Lucky: How about this one -- "Introduction to Acting."

Elizabeth: Since when are you interested in acting?

Lucky: Since now.

Luke: You gave up a real date to be here with me?

Summer: I thought you'd want me here with you.

Luke: Look, don't give anything up for me. Summer, you're -- you're changing your life. You're walking away from hooking. Don't use me as an excuse not to find something new and better.

Summer: But I like it here with you.

Luke: Darling, I can't be your place to hide. That's not good for you. Besides, you deserve a hell of a lot better than me. Go on, get out in the world. Get yourself a life. Who knows? You might even find somebody who makes it all make sense, somebody that gives you a reason to get up in the morning, somebody that makes you believe in magic again for a little while.

Faith: Here?

Brenda: I'm not insane.

Jax: That's just a legal term.

Cameron: And I haven't agreed to declare you anything.

Jax: Look, if we can prove that you were insane at the time of the murder, then you will go free.

Brenda: Wait, wait. So you want me to say that I killed Luis?

Jax: It was Scott Baldwin's idea.

Brenda: And you're going to go along with this?

Cameron: I agreed to do an evaluation, nothing more. If you're not interested, there's nothing more I can do.

Brenda: And what exactly would this evaluation entail?

Cameron: I'd start with your history. Look for emotional abuse, maybe Battered Woman Syndrome --

Brenda: Battered Woman Syndrome?

Jax: Yeah, because you were under Alcazar's control. I mean, he told you that you were going to die.

Cameron: And he kept you isolated, right?

Brenda: Yes.

Cameron: Classic signs of abuse. Then I'd run a battery of tests to determine your current emotional state.

Jax: Yes, and we'll use that, along with your breakdown and your mother's emotional instability --

Brenda: No, wait. My mother was sick.

Jax: Yes, I know that, Brenda. And something good may finally come of that -- that and your breakdown.

Brenda: Why are we discussing this in front of a stranger?

Jax: He's a psychiatrist, and we're running out of options here.

Brenda: Well, this isn't going to happen, so -- I'm sorry.

Jax: Look, Brenda, you have a documented history --

Brenda: I didn't kill anybody, and I'm not going to say that I did. And I'm definitely not going to say that I am crazy!

Jax: I am trying to help you.

Brenda: Well, then, I don't want your help.

Brenda: I wasn't insane the night that Luis died.

Jax: Look, all we have to prove is that you didn't know right from wrong for a few seconds. That's it.

Brenda: I did know right from wrong. That is why I didn't kill him. Jax apologizes for wasting your time, so it was lovely to meet you --

Jax: Brenda, Scott Baldwin is not after you. Scott Baldwin is not after you, so he would buy an insanity plea. As long as he can prove that Jason was there with --

Brenda: You want me to take the stand and testify against Jason?

Cameron: Only if you want to win your case.

Brenda: You want me to go in front of the whole entire world and tell them that I am insane? You want me to explain all of the details of my breakdown to everyone? This is what you want me to do?

Jax: Look, I know this is difficult, but we are all out of options here.

Brenda: Have you thought about the option of me losing? I mean, what if I admit to something that I didn't do and I end up getting the death penalty for it? Have you thought about that?

Jax: Yes. You have a documented --

Brenda: I can't even believe --

Jax: You have a documented history --

Brenda: That you would suggest something like this!

Cameron: I'm going to give you two some time to work this out.

Brenda: Yes, thank you.

Jax: I'll be in touch.

Brenda: What is wrong with you?

Jax: I am trying to save your life here, okay?

Brenda: How, by asking me to tell people that I'm crazy?

Jax: It's a legal strategy, Brenda!

Brenda: Jax, it is a lie!

Jax: I don't care about the truth. All I care is getting you out of this. That's what I care about.

Brenda: Well, I don't need you to care about any of it anymore because I will get myself out of this.

Jax: How? You're just going to -- just pray for some miracle to happen? Or are you going to wait for Sonny to bail you out?

Luke: The last thing I want to do is stand in your way.

Summer: Well, you're not.

Luke: Well, then, call up the guy and tell him you changed your mind.

Summer: Most men are not like you.

Luke: No, they're not, and it's a damn good thing, too.

Summer: Most men want something from me.

Luke: Don't kid yourself, baby. So do I.

Summer: You want me to pretend for you, which I am happy to do.

Luke: Look, I pay you to play the game. But the game was never intended to be a full-time job. You got to have a life.

Summer: So I turned down one real date. Big deal. There'll be more.

Luke: Well, of course there will. That's not the point.

Summer: Well, in the meantime, let's -- let's go dancing or something.

Luke: I like the way you think. Where do you want to go?

Summer: Not Wyndham's. For real. One round of breaking and entering was enough. Anywhere else?

Luke: Look, why don't we forget the dancing? Why don't you go down to that new place on South street? Maybe the guy who asked you out will be there.

Summer: Are you trying to get rid of me?

Luke: You're never going to find the love of your life dancing with me.

Summer: You know, I don't even know that I would recognize him if I saw him tonight, the way I feel.

Luke: Go get your dancing shoes.

Summer: Cool! Because I got this awesome dress.

Luke: All right, you're going to meet me back here?

Summer: Yep. Sure will.

Luke: All right.

Ned: I want to start pushing Corinthos.

Faith: I've been ready for a long time.

Ned: Okay, now, listen. His wife is opening a club under Kelly's.

Faith: Mm-hmm. The diner?

Ned: Yeah, you know the place?

Faith: Yeah, I've been by.

Ned: Good. They've knocked down some walls in the cellar.

Faith: Mm-hmm.

Ned: I want the details. Sonny's footing the bill.

Faith: Oh. I can check it out.

Ned: Good. I see building violations --

Faith: Mm-hmm.

Ned: Union problems, contractors not showing up -- that kind of thing.

Faith: I can do that.

Ned: You can?

Faith: Mm-hmm. No problem.

Ned: We'll distract Sonny --

Faith: Mm-hmm.

Ned: With this club, and then we'll move on to real money.

Faith: Things keep going wrong 'til Sonny falls.

Ned: That's right -- and we win big.

Carly: So -- there it is. There was a dance floor right here. And this guy Joe died on it. He was in love with a girl who was a lot like you. He worked for a mob boss, just like Jason works for Sonny.

Courtney: Who told you all this?

Carly: This old lady who has lived across the street all these years. She showed up here on New Year's Eve. This was her place. She was married to a mob boss, Marco. They had a little boy. And the night that this place opened was the shooting. Their lives broke apart after that. Marco went to prison and she had to give her little boy up for adoption. I don't know. It's -- can't you feel like -- I don't know -- like an energy here? Like -- I don't know -- someone's heart is breaking?

Courtney: Not really.

Carly: It feels like something wonderful was supposed to happen here and it just didn't.

Courtney: What if that's the point?

Carly: That I should quit before I begin? I agree with you. It's --

Courtney: No, no, no, no, no. What if you've been given the chance to try again to make things right?

Carly: I don't think things work like that. Hey -- who's there?

Ric: Don't worry. It's just me.

Ric: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to startle you. Elizabeth said you were down here --

Carly: It's okay. Courtney, do you know Ric?

Courtney: Yeah, I've served him dinner a few times. You were at the arraignment. You're Jason's lawyer.

Ric: Yeah.

Carly: He's also doing some work with me on the club.

Ric: Yes, but at the moment, I'm looking for Sonny. He's not returning my phone calls.

Carly: He's got to be busy, then.

[Phone rings]

Carly: Oh. Excuse me. Sonny? Hey, it -- oh -- hey, Leticia. I thought it might be Sonny. No. What's the matter? Is Michael okay? Yes, tell him I will be there shortly. Okay, bye. Okay, well, I have got to go be a mommy now.

Ric: It's okay. I understand.

Carly: Ric, would you mind showing Courtney around the rest of the place? I would be very interested to see what you think.

Courtney: Yeah, sure.

Carly: Okay. Thanks.

Ric: See you soon.

Courtney: Ahem.

Ric: So, Carly told you about this place, huh?

Courtney: Yeah. You know, I'm kind of surprised that, you know, you have time to even think of this place, you know, with the murder trial and all.

Ric: Oh. I mostly just check in. Carly doesn't need much help.

Courtney: Yeah. You know, she and Jason -- they're like best friends. And Carly would be devastated if anything happened to him.

Ric: Well, he is in a lot of trouble.

Courtney: I don't know if you know this, but A.J. Quartermaine -- Jason's brother -- A.J. hates his guts.

Ric: Well, that's definitely something to file away.

Courtney: A.J. would do or say anything to hurt Jason.

Ric: I don't mean to be rude, but why are you so concerned about Jason?

Lucky: Dad?

Luke: Hey, Cowboy, come on in. What's up?

Lucky: What are you doing?

Luke: I'm paying bills. What are you doing?

Lucky: This all happened when you were playing Santa Claus?

Luke: Yeah, I had too much junk anyway.

Lucky: I can see it's probably not a good time.

Luke: Sit down. Tell me what you need.

Lucky: All right. I haven't been getting much work since deception shut down. I know I probably could if I went out of the city, but I really don't want to leave home. And fashion's really not my thing, anyway.

Luke: You want to change jobs?

Lucky: Actually, I was thinking about going to college.

Luke: College? Right here in the chuckles?

Lucky: Well, for now, until I can figure out what I want to do, and college seems to make sense for that. But I can see you're just as broke as I am, so just, you know, forget I even mentioned this.

Luke: Hey, who the hell do you think you're dealing with? I've always got a bankroll for my son. I'm just trying to picture you in college.

Lucky: Why, because you think it's a tool for corporate America?

Luke: Your mother always wanted you to go to college.

Man: Hello, Laura.

Summer: I have nothing to say to you.

Man: Then just listen. Let me explain what happened and why. My wife had just found out about us. She was making all sorts of crazy threats. I was in the middle of an election, and I --

Summer: What do you want?

Man: I won, by the way. Four more years as a state senator.

Summer: Look, you're a client, okay? You beat me up. We're finished.

Man: That's what I'm trying to tell you -- we don't have to be.

Summer: I am out of the life.

Man: You expect me to believe that?

Summer: Believe whatever you want. I don't care. Just -- I'm not going to cause you any problems, okay?

Man: Actually, I need you to come forward.

Cameron: Alexis?

Alexis: Cameron, this isn't a good time.

Cameron: Is the baby all right?

Alexis: Yes. Yes.

Cameron: Then why are you crying?

Alexis: I'm not crying. It's just my eyes tear when it's cold.

Cameron: Then why don't you go inside?

Alexis: Because I want to stand out here, if that's all right with you.

Cameron: Do you mind if I watch you suffer?

Alexis: You should be used to it by now.

Cameron: Alexis, what's wrong?

Alexis: Don't you have someplace to be right now?

Cameron: No.

Alexis: If I tell you, will you go away?

Cameron: Maybe.

Alexis: It was Ned and some blonde having sex on the dock.

Cameron: Good for Ned.

Brenda: Do not blame this on Sonny.

Jax: What are you doing, Brenda? You want to follow him all the way to prison?

Brenda: Well, at least he believes I'm innocent. And I'm pretty sure he wouldn't ask me to say that I'm crazy.

Jax: Of course not. Do you realize what would happen if you were found not guilty by reason of insanity? That would look really bad for Sonny and Jason. Now, Sonny ordered Jason to kill Alcazar that night, and his intention was to do it. And they stand guilty, and you're not. So if the only way to clear you from this is to plead insanity, then I'll be willing to do that.

Brenda: I don't even know you right now. I don't even -- I've just -- I've never even seen you like this before.

Jax: How do you think I make my living, Brenda? I get what I want because I do what it takes. You know, I admitted to doing this crime, and it didn't work. I got you out of the country, and you came back. I tried to bribe Baldwin and the psychiatrist, and that didn't work, either.

Brenda: Oh, my God. I can't even believe I'm hearing this.

Jax: The insanity plea could save your life. Why will you not do it?

Brenda: Because I didn't kill anybody and I'm not crazy and I am not going to lie.

Jax: What, you think Sonny's going to get you out of this?

Brenda: Well, Sonny has a lot of resources.

Jax: I am offering you a way out here. But you don't really want that, do you? You want to get your fix of Sonny -- that little danger element.

Brenda: What?

Jax: Do you realize that you are putting your life on the line for him? And for what, Brenda?

Brenda: Jax --

Carly: You and Jax should try and keep your voices down.

Brenda: Yeah. I'm -- I'm sorry if we disturbed you.

Carly: Yeah, well, the whole building probably heard that fight, and every minute that you spend with Jax -- it hurts Jason.

Brenda: I know. You're right.

Carly: Jax wants Alexis to frame Jason. He wants her to deliberately lie and manipulate the evidence. Did you know any of this?

Brenda: Nobody is going to frame Jason.

Carly: They already are. What do you think Jax dreamed up that insanity stuff for? He is trying to scare you so that you will testify against Jason.

Brenda: That's not going to happen.

Carly: Well, can you make a jury believe that Alcazar was still alive when you left that hotel room?

Brenda: Well, he was, so all I can do is just tell the truth.

Carly: And that Jason wasn't in the room?

Brenda: He wasn't.

Carly: He only helped you get out of the hotel?

Brenda: Yeah.

Carly: God, I cannot believe you chased after him with a knife.

Brenda: I know. I know. I didn't kill him.

Carly: Well, there are a whole bunch of witnesses that say you did. And if Scott Baldwin thinks that you did it, he thinks that Jason is guilty, too.

Brenda: I already know all of this. Carly, what is it that you want?

Carly: I want you to say that you're innocent. And I want you to sound levelheaded and rational, and I want you to make a jury believe you. Because if they don't, then Jason is going to end up on death row.

Brenda: I always tell the truth.

Carly: Well, Scott Baldwin doesn't give a damn about the truth. He's going to twist whatever you say.

Brenda: Doesn't matter because I also always protect the people that I love.

Carly: Well, I hope that includes Jason.

Jason: You left a lot of messages.

Ric: Well, we need to discuss your testimony.

Jason: Yeah, well, I'm not going to testify.

Ric: Mr. Morgan, this may come as a complete and total shock to you, but you are on trial for murder one. Now, Baldwin is going to get up in front of that entire courtroom and tell everybody in no uncertain terms that you are a professional killer, all right? A hit man. Now, call me crazy, but it might be in your best interests to retort. Fine -- unless you just want stand there like a cold, remorseless statue and let them draw their conclusions.

Courtney: You didn't kill Alcazar, Jason. I mean, why not say so so the jury knows you're innocent?

Jason: Because there are things that I can't say and questions I don't want to answer, and those are exactly the questions Baldwin's going to ask me. Why do you want me to get up on the stand so bad, Ric, and give Baldwin the opportunity to make me look bad?

Ric: You're going to have to trust that I know what I'm doing.

Jason: Your job is to defend me, and if you can't do it, I'll find someone else who can.

Ric: Look, I'm just asking for a little cooperation here, that's --

Jason: Okay, first of all, you're a little close to me, okay? And your job is to defend me and just stay out of my way.

Ric: Great.

Courtney: You know, I have to go pick up my check before they close the register. I'll see you later.

Ric: Sure.

Luke: Your mother used to worry when we were on the road and you had to change schools all the time that you'd never be able to get into college.

Lucky: Hey, remember all those transcripts we dragged around? A different identity for every school.

Luke: Yeah. Keeping up with your aliases was a full-time job.

Lucky: Yeah. Well, thank God PCU only needs my high school transcripts, and I've got that covered.

Luke: Your mother would be very proud of you.

Lucky: She always was.

Luke: Why don't you find a school somewhere away from Port Upchuck?

Lucky: I don't want to leave my family. I mostly don't want to be leaving you.

Luke: No, don't stick around here on my account.

Lucky: Fine. I'll stay around for Lulu, then.

Luke: Now that's a better answer.

Lucky: Thanks.

Luke: You just decide how much you need and tell me, and I'll take it from there.

Lucky: You know, Dad, I can apply for financial aid. It's really no problem.

Luke: What, borrow money from a bunch of uptight bureaucrats? Not my kid.

Lucky: Dad, I appreciate the fact that you want to do this for me. I just -- the bar's barely even open.

Luke: That's all right. I'll find a way. I always do.

Lucky: Thank you.

Luke: You know, your mother talked me into taking some college courses once a thousand years ago.

Lucky: Yeah?

Luke: Yeah. She could pretty much talk me into anything, you know.

Lucky: What did you take?

Luke: Oh, man, I don't remember. What was it? "Jurassic Veterinary" or "Cave Wall Painting"? I don't know. It's been a while. What kind of classes are you interested in?

Lucky: Anything. Everything. I just -- I want to give something a try, just -- I really want to find my way.

Luke: That's all anybody can do -- try to find their way.

Summer: What do you mean, "come forward"?

Man: Tell my wife we're finished. Give her a chance to settle down. Then we can pick up where we left off.

Summer: I have somewhere to be.

Man: What do you need? More money? An apartment? Better clothes?

Summer: I told you I'm out of the business.

Man: What we shared wasn't business.

Summer: Oh, sure, it was. And it's finished, senator.

[Summer gasps]

Man: Don't walk away from me. You don't lie to me and tell me you've changed. You're nothing but an overpriced call girl, and one of these days you're going to get into trouble and you're going to come crawling to me to bail you out. And it is going to cost you, whore.

Alexis: You know, if you hurry up, you could catch them probably still in action and you could root them on.

Cameron: Well, I have to admit I'm surprised.

Alexis: Then you can only imagine how I feel.

Cameron: Why should you care?

Alexis: Because I do, all right? I don't know why. I just do.

Cameron: Seems to me Ned's finally showing some respect for himself.

Alexis: "Respect"? By having sex with a stranger on the dock in the middle of the winter in public?

Cameron: How do you know she was a stranger?

Alexis: You're right. You know what? You're right. I don't have any right to be upset about -- about this. It's none of my business. I've been pushing him away for months, and now he's gone.

Cameron: Except for the baby.

Alexis: Kristina is not your concern.

Cameron: You know, it's interesting -- just from a clinical point of view -- the way you use the child against Ned. It's sort of narcissism meets control with an undertone of paranoia.

Alexis: I just want to take a minute to catch my breath and then maybe go have a cup of coffee.

Cameron: Mm-hmm. Get back to work.

Alexis: Maybe.

Cameron: So you don't have to feel the pain.

Alexis: You know what? Do you have to have the last word? Is that what this is about? Is that why you won't drop this?

Cameron: Kind of. So you caught Ned doing something out of character, and it took you by surprise.

Alexis: Brilliant.

Cameron: So you're a little jealous and a little turned on. And you're already planning to use it against him, aren't you? Anything to keep Ned away from his daughter.

Alexis: That is not what's happening at all.

Cameron: So what's the next step, Alexis? You going to drag him into court, declare him unfit, ruin his life?

Alexis: Cameron, you are so off base. Honestly, you don't know what you're talking about. And for some reason, I can't get you to stop talking, but you have no right to be pursuing this conversation --

Cameron: What about Ned's rights as a father?

Alexis: What is this with you and Ned? Why are you so concerned about Ned? You don't even know him.

Cameron: Why can't you appreciate that Ned simply wants --

Alexis: Why can't you appreciate that I don't want to talk about this anymore?

Cameron: Why can't you appreciate that Ned simply wants to be close to his child?

Alexis: Because it's not his child. He's not the father. Are you satisfied?

Lucky: Laura. Hi.

Summer: Hi.

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

Summer: Reality sucks. You ever notice that?

Lucky: Yeah, all the time.

Summer: You know, you think you can break away and make a change and -- what the hell was I thinking? Me in college? Yeah!

Lucky: Hey. What happened?

Summer: Nothing. I just don't belong in college, that's all.

Lucky: Mind if I sit here? So -- I buy you dessert, and now you're going to bail on me?

Summer: You didn't buy me that dessert.

Lucky: I showed you where it was on the menu at least.

Summer: What does that dessert have to do with me going to college?

Lucky: I don't want to be, like, lost out on the ocean, you know, all by myself like some poor soul, adrift.

Summer: Excuse me?

Lucky: Yeah.

Summer: "Adrift"?

Lucky: At PCU I'd be there all by myself. You don't want to do that to me. Do you?

Alexis: I can't believe that I -- I just said that. My God.

Cameron: Ned isn't the father of your baby?

Alexis: Will you just leave?

Cameron: Does he know that?

Alexis: Cameron, leave it alone.

Cameron: You're letting Ned think he's the father, aren't you?

Alexis: Do you mean to be such a jerk? Has it ever occurred to you that the biological father may be a problem and that Ned took it upon himself to help?

Cameron: So he does know.

Alexis: Of course he knows. The biological father was asking a lot of questions one night. Ned happened to have been there. He stepped in and declared himself the father before I could stop him.

Cameron: Actually, that's kind of gallant.

Alexis: It was the best solution he could think of at the time. From the start, I planned to be a single parent.

Cameron: Doesn't Ned get any points for trying to help out?

Alexis: I appreciate everything that he's done, but I never asked for his help.

Cameron: Raising a child is a huge responsibility.

Alexis: Which I'm capable of handling.

Cameron: You and Ned were together for a long time, weren't you?

Alexis: We were engaged, and at the moment I'm glad that we're not married.

Cameron: Maybe you could make that count for something if you could find a way to raise this child together.

Alexis: Why do you care about this so much?

Cameron: I appreciate what Ned's trying to do.

Alexis: Is this some sort of a male bonding thing?

Cameron: No. I abandoned my own son.

Elizabeth: You look swamped.

Ric: Well, defending Jason Morgan hasn't been the easiest work I've ever done. Thank you.

Elizabeth: I can imagine.

Ric: You know, he won't even take a meeting with me.

Elizabeth: Jason doesn't do meetings.

Ric: I need for him to trust me.

Elizabeth: Well, that's not going to happen.

Ric: You know, maybe a friend could reason with him. You think I should ask Courtney about that?

Courtney: Hey.

Jason: I'm glad you showed up.

Courtney: So am I. So, you want to tell me what's up with you and your lawyer?

Jason: I don't really want to talk about it.

Courtney: I think Ric's just trying to help.

Jason: Yeah, I know, but Ric is in the right place at the right time again, and it's just a little too convenient.

Courtney: Well, if you don't trust Ric, then fire him.

Jason: Well, we've thought about it, but we've just decided to be careful.

Courtney: You're on trial for murder, Jason. You need to have a lawyer that you have faith in.

Jason: I just want this to be over.

Courtney: Yeah, well, only if you're found innocent. You have to be. We all need you, Jason, more than you know.

Carly: What do you want?

Faith: Do you know who I am?

Carly: Who cares?

Faith: You're Sonny Corinthos' wife?

Carly: Yeah, you're Rosco's widow. I saw you at Club 101 with Sammy Tagliati. What do you want?

Faith: Just to look at the old place, that's all.

Carly: Why?

Faith: My grandmother used to own it.

Brenda: You shouldn't be here.

Jax: Hey. Just -- I wanted to apologize for the way I left earlier.

Brenda: I don't like this side of you.

Jax: I lost you once, Brenda. I don't want that to happen again. I'll fight anyone, including you, to get you out of this.

Brenda: I don't want to fight anymore.

Jax: Then let me help you.

Luke: To summer. She had the good sense not to show.

Summer: So you can't finish college without me? Is that what you're saying?

Lucky: So don't chicken out.

Summer: Okay, I won't if you won't.

Lucky: Now, was that so hard?

Summer: I am so late.

Lucky: Wait -- it's a guy, isn't it? You just don't have the heart to tell me.

Summer: Will you walk me to the street, please?

Lucky: Sure. Is he nice?

Summer: Yeah, he is. So are you.

Lucky: Yeah, yeah.

Summer: There's usually cabs over here on the west end. Let's go.

Officer: You're both under arrest.

Faith: I always wondered what this place would look like.

Carly: Grandma never showed you around?

Faith: No. My father told me about it. She had to give him up for adoption when he was just a little boy. All I know is that her name is Catherine and that this place used to be a speakeasy. Do you know that?

Carly: I've heard all kinds of stories.

Faith: Yeah, yeah, my grandfather Marco -- he owned it. Catherine ran the place -- at least that was the plan. There was a big shootout the night it opened. My family lost everything they had in 30 seconds. Maybe less. You know they say this place is haunted? If you're out in the alleyway at night, you can hear dance music from the 1920s.

Carly: Hmm. Never heard anything. And I don't believe in ghosts.

Faith: Neither do I. Yeah, it's fate. That's what you got to watch out for. It'll turn on you in a second.

Ric: I don't know. Maybe I'm wrong, but Jason and Courtney -- they seem fairly close.

Elizabeth: Well, Jason's helped her out a lot. And she has this ex-husband from hell.

Ric: Yeah, A.J. Quartermaine. I know. You told me.

Elizabeth: Sonny ordered Jason to guard her. He's pretty much the only one who has influence on Jason. Carly does sometimes, but basically Courtney's just a job to him.

Ric: Maybe it's for the best. I don't know.

Elizabeth: Why do you ask?

Ric: Well, the more Jason and Brenda are seen together, the better. The jury's going to want to see a committed husband and wife.

Jax: We'll get through this.

Brenda: I need for you to believe in me.

Jax: You know I do. When this trial is over, then you and I can have the life we've always dreamed of.

Brenda: I need you.

Cameron: The boys wanted to go to Vermont, but I didn't feel like we had the time, so we stayed in Florida, went deer hunting in the Panhandle like we had for years.

Alexis: "The boys" meaning your sons?

Cameron: Yeah. It was the last week of the season, so the woods were full of hunters. I made sure the boys wore their vests. I was just a few feet ahead, looking for a stand that we'd put up the year before. And then I heard a shot --

[Gunshot]

Cameron's voice: Way too close. I turned around and saw Peter. He was -- he was on the ground. He had taken a hollow point to the chest. There was nothing I could do. My younger boy just stood there. He blamed himself. He disappeared after the funeral. I haven't seen him since. He needed his father, and I shut him out.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Scott: Your pal is a hooker.

A.J.: You follow Courtney day and night. I want to know where she goes and who she sees.

Coleman: I'm starving --

Skye: It doesn't bother you in the least that we killed poor Ida?

Jason: Hey -- go home.

Ric: Whatever Sonny may be doing can't be more important than this trial.

Carly: It is.
