>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Jax: I want to help you.

Skye: You think I did it, don't you?

Jax: Baldwin is after you.

Cameron: Cut Alexis some slack. She's still processing her sister's death.

Jason: I'm taking Brenda to the Dominican Republic to get an annulment.

Brenda: You know that I hate to fly!

Edward: Our goal remains the same -- the complete destruction of Sonny Corinthos.

Sonny: Violence is part of the world I'm in. I don't want you to get hurt.

Cameron: Alexis?

Alexis: Your mommy will always be here for you. Always. I won't let anything happen to you.

Cameron: Alexis, are you all right?

Alexis: You can always depend on your mommy, always.

Cameron: Alexis.

Alexis: What? What?

Cameron: Where were you just now?

Alexis: What? Is Kristina all right?

Alexis: I'm at the hospital.

Cameron: Where did you think you were?

[Kristina fusses]

Alexis: I -- I don't remember coming here.

Jax: You boys have an arrest warrant?

Scott: Well, Taggert can get one like that.

Jax: I think it's time for you to leave.

Scott: You're hiding something, aren't you?

Skye: No.

Scott: You want to have this conversation now, or you want to go downtown? What's it going to be?

Jax: Skye is not going anywhere with you.

Taggert: We're just trying to clear a few things up, that's all.

Jax: You know what? You set up the wrong people for this murder and you made a fool of yourself. Now you're trying to pin it on a new suspect, and it's not going to be Skye.

Taggert: Hey, without jumping to any conclusions, she gave us plenty of reason to be concerned. That's why we're here.

Skye: I didn't kill Luis Alcazar.

Scott: Well, that's because you don't remember, do you?

Jax: Do you guys have any new evidence at all?

Scott: Every time I turn around, we got evidence.

Jax: But no new evidence?

Scott: This is your last chance. You want to come clean? Don't blow it here.

Jax: Okay, if you gentlemen don't leave, I'm going to call the press. If you show up here again, you'll be on the evening news in every newspaper across the country. It's up to you.

Skye: Thank you.

Brenda: Ugh. Whew. Oh. There's no air in here. Oh. Oh. What is wrong with you?

Jason: Just go to sleep.

Brenda: How can you just sit there like that?

Jason: It's just turbulence.

Brenda: I mean, there's no air in here. Do you remember what happened last time we flew together? We crashed.

Jason: That was wind shear. It was different.

Brenda: The pilot died. We ended up out in the wilderness together for weeks.

Jason: I know that. Is there any chance that you're going to be quiet so I can take a nap? It's just a storm.

Brenda: What do you think?

Jason: Relax.

Brenda: Oh, why couldn't you have gotten the annulment in Vegas?

Jason: Vegas? You want to --

Brenda: Yes, Vegas. Somewhere else other than --

Jason: You want to go back to Vegas after our wedding?

Brenda: Yes, Vegas is fine. I don't care, I don't care -- Mexico, Oklahoma, Canada -- someplace on land.

Jason: Okay, calm down, all right? Just calm down. The Dominican Republic is on land.

Brenda: I don't like to fly over the water!

Jason: Why are you making this so difficult? We get the annulment, we get on the plane, we go back home, and it's done.

Brenda: Why do you have to be so -- why can't you be -- okay, I'm not flying with you.

Jason: Oh, what are you going to do, jump out?

Brenda: No, I'm not flying with you.

[Intercom beeps]

Pilot: Buckle your seat belts, please. We'll be experiencing some turbulence.

Brenda: Oh, that is just great!

Jason: He said buckle your --

Brenda: "Buckle your seat belts"? You know what that means? That means, hello, we're about to take a nosedive into the ocean and I'm going to get wet again, I'll be missing again for another four years. Okay, that's fine.

Jason: Is that good?

Brenda: That's fine. It's just great. I'll probably end up dying again, and this time I'm your wife.

[Jason sighs]

Sonny: Hey. Ah.

Carly: So, this is my last chance to back out.

Sonny: Now, are you having second thoughts?

Carly: Well, this place has a tragic history. I told you about it, right?

Sonny: You told me that it opened and closed on New Year's Eve -- something like that, right?

Carly: Well, this place was owned by a woman named Catherine, and she planned a fabulous opening. She invited all of her friends and her family, and everyone who was anyone was here. Her husband, Marco, was with her that night, and Joe, a guy who worked for him, and Violet, Marco's sister. The place, it was packed. Music was playing and everyone was having a great time. But then at the stroke of midnight, gunmen broke into the place and opened fire.

[Carly screams]

Elizabeth: Did you hear that?

Courtney: Yeah, it sounded like it came from the basement.

Elizabeth: It sounded like gunfire. Hey, Ric, Ric, Ric -- what's going on?

Ric: All right. Down. Stay down!

Elizabeth: Ooh! Ric!

Carly: Stay back, stay back!

Ric: It's all right, it's all right!

Sonny: Whoa, whoa, whoa --

Ric: Hey, everybody go inside. Come on, get up. Get up.

Carly: Is that the guy?

Ric: He's all yours.

Man: I didn't do anything.

Sonny: There must be some kind of misunderstanding.

Elizabeth: I heard gunfire from the basement.

Sonny: No, that was a firecracker --

Elizabeth: Firecrackers in the middle of winter?

Courtney: You know, I actually thought it was the radiator pipes.

Ric: Yeah, what's the matter with you? Don't you know this is a place of business?

Carly: Yeah, what are you thinking, shooting off firecrackers? Aren't you a little old for that?

Sonny: Okay, you know what? Will you take everybody inside, Elizabeth? I'm going to take care of this.

Courtney: Do you want me to call the police?

Sonny: No, they'll be here soon enough.

Courtney: Okay, everybody, let's go. Apple pie, coffee, on the house. Come on, let's go.

Elizabeth: All right, everybody --

Courtney: Come on inside.

Elizabeth: Sorry for the inconvenience. Let's go. Come on.

Courtney: Come on.

Ric: All right, who sent you?

Man: Nobody was supposed to get hurt.

Carly: Oh, oh, you shooting off that gun was an accident? You tried to kill me and my husband!

Sonny: Whoa, whoa, whoa --

Man: I never meant to hurt anybody, I swear.

Ric: Yeah, that's why you're carrying a gun. Come on, stop lying.

Sonny: Ric, Ric -- take it easy. He's not lying.

Alexis: Will you stop looking at me like that?

Nurse: Hi, sweetie.

Alexis: Oh -- you have to take her?

Nurse: Yes.

Alexis: Okay. Thank you.

Nurse: There we go, sweetie.

Alexis: See you in a minute.

Nurse: Okay.

Alexis: I'll see you in a minute.

Cameron: How was I looking at you, Alexis?

Alexis: Like I'm crazy and you're my therapist, which I am not and you are not. You are not on the clock.

Cameron: Seeing a therapist might not be a bad idea.

[Alexis sighs]

Alexis: I need sleep, all right? You're just upset because I didn't focus on you the minute that you called my name.

Cameron: Where were you?

Alexis: I'm tired, all right? I zoned out, obviously.

Cameron: Alexis, you can't even remember how you got here.

Alexis: It's called stress. New mothers get it, attorneys get it when they're in the middle of murder cases -- capital murder cases -- particularly parents who have sick children. You put all those three things together, you could have gaps. Things may run together. You may end up sleeping on your feet.

Cameron: You didn't even hear me.

Alexis: I didn't hop to the minute that you called my name. I apologize. Next time you say "Alexis," I will make sure I stand up and salute.

Cameron: Do you frequently refer to yourself in the third person?

Alexis: Why would Alexis Davis do that?

Cameron: Do you even remember speaking to your baby?

Alexis: I speak to my baby all the time. Do I remember every word that I say to her? Of course not. I talk to her all the time. Parents do that. It actually helps them learn the language. Didn't they teach you that in med school?

Cameron: I guess I was absent that day.

Alexis: Cameron, if you want to help somebody, go back to the shelter. I'm fine, unless sleep deprivation is a mental illness.

Cameron: Actually, it can trigger psychosis.

Alexis: Doesn't Luke need you?

[Alexis sighs]

Doctor: Are you ready for the staff meeting?

Cameron: That's today?

Doctor: In about 10 minutes. I hear Alan Quartermaine --

Cameron: Tell him I won't be there.

Jax: Everything is set up in Lisbon. You'll have a new identity, plenty of money that's untraceable, and a beautiful place to live. All you need to do is get on that plane.

Skye: By myself?

Jax: Well, I mean, I could go with you for a little bit if that's what you want.

Skye: You had this all set up for Brenda, didn't you?

Jax: Yes, I did.

Skye: You were both going to disappear together forever?

Jax: I'm giving you a chance, Skye. Take it.

Skye: Even after all the terrible things I've done?

Jax: I'd like to put the past behind us, make a fresh start.

Skye: I'd like one of those myself.

Jax: Then you'll go to Lisbon?

Skye: Thank you, but, no. I have good reasons to stay here for now.

[Brenda mumbles]

Brenda: What? Shut up, don't talk to me right now, please.

Jason: Turbulence.

Brenda: I'm trying to breathe.

Jason: Fine. There's no turbulence.

Brenda: I don't believe you.

Jason: Fine.

Brenda: Seriously?

Jason: Yes, the pilot just announced it. Didn't you hear him?

Brenda: I know, but pilots make, you know, mistakes.

Jason: I know. Just leave your seat belt on. You'll be fine.

Brenda: Is this what you do with Courtney? When she asks you a question, you just ignore her? You just have no response?

Jason: No. No, actually, it's not.

Brenda: Is she really nice? Why can't you just have a normal conversation with me? I'm asking you questions. Can't you just answer me?

Jason: Brenda, you know what? This is going to be all over and you don't have to talk to me anymore.

Brenda: Is that why you're in love with her? She does everything you tell her to do? Like you say, "Be quiet," and she's just quiet?

Jason: No, she just doesn't need to be center of attention all the time.

Brenda: Oh. I think she has terrible taste in men, personally.

Jason: She has terrible taste?

Jason: She's funny.

Brenda: She's funny?

Jason: Yeah, she is funny.

Brenda: She doesn't look funny to me.

Jason: She doesn't lie.

Brenda: Well, maybe. She looks like she might not lie.

Jason: And she's very, very unselfish.

[Intercom beeps]

Pilot: We're making our final approach to the Dominican Republic.

Brenda: Thank God.

Jason: Hey. Do you know most wind shear crashes happen on landing?

Alexis: Please don't be upset with me. I really am doing the best that I can. It just gets so hard sometimes. I won't let you down, I promise. I promise.

Elizabeth: Where are the police?

Courtney: They'll be here. I mean, it's not like anyone got hurt. Oh. Here you go.

Elizabeth: Here's some coffee. Enjoy. The guy could have shot up the diner.

Courtney: Don't think that way.

Elizabeth: How can you be so calm?

Courtney: Sonny's taking care of it.

Elizabeth: Yeah, and Sonny could have gotten killed. Don't you even care?

Courtney: If Sonny says it was firecrackers, it was firecrackers.

Woman: Excuse me -- I'd like a piece of pie, too, please?

Elizabeth: Oh, absolutely. Here you go.

Woman: Thank you.

Elizabeth: Enjoy.

Woman: Thank you.

Elizabeth: You have to be more scared than this.

Courtney: Okay, I'm terrified, all right? My brother is out there with a guy who just tried to shoot him, I don't know whose side Ric's on, and Jason's out of town.

Elizabeth: Jason would be very impressed with your little performance.

Courtney: It isn't a performance.

Elizabeth: You just said you were terrified.

Courtney: I am trying to hold on here, okay? It's the only way I know how to help.

Elizabeth: I mean, hold on, wait a minute. Weren't you the one who fainted in the courtroom the other day, or did the newspapers get it wrong?

Courtney: Okay, you know what? I didn't mean to mention Jason. I'm sorry.

Elizabeth: Why? Why? Did he ask you not to?

Courtney: No, it's just rude, and I didn't want to upset you.

Elizabeth: What, you think I can't handle it?

Courtney: Hi. Here you go.

Man: Thank you.

Courtney: Thanks.

Elizabeth: Thanks for sticking around.

Courtney: Okay, you know what? I -- I acted ridiculous in court, and it only made everything difficult for everybody else.

Elizabeth: According to who? Sonny? Jason?

Courtney: I am just trying to do better today. Okay, I'm trying to shut down and have my feelings later.

Elizabeth: It's all starting to make sense.

Courtney: Okay, Elizabeth, can we just get through this, please?

Elizabeth: I finally understand how you stole Jason from me.

Brenda: Oh!

[Jason sighs]

Brenda: This is a courthouse?

Jason: No, no, you're supposed to take us to la corte, la corte.

Brenda: This is a hut in the middle of the --

Man: La corte, la corte. Qual corte? Aqui no se puede llegar.

Brenda: What's he saying? What?

Jason: He said the bridge on the road to the courthouse has been washed out.

Brenda: Okay, well, let's take another bridge. What's the problem?

Man: El problema es que no se puede pasar porque los puentes se derumbaron por el agua.

Brenda: Huh? What?

Man: Mi primo es juez. El nos puede divorsiar.

Jason: No, no, annulment.

Brenda: Yes, an annulment is what we want.

Man: Si, no problema.

Brenda: "No problema," he says.

Jason: His cousin, his cousin.

Brenda: What about his cousin? Who cares about his cousin?

Man: Mi primo va areglar todo. No hay problema.

Jason: All right.

Brenda: "No problema," he says.

Man: No.

Jason: Here you go.

Brenda: No, no, no, don't give him money now.

Jason: No, no, no, half now.

Brenda: Don't give him money yet!

Jason: Be quiet. There you go.

Brenda: And you give him money.

Jason: Yeah.

Man: Gracias.

Brenda: Thank you.

Man: No problema.

Brenda: And we'll never see him again. You messed everything up.

Jason: No, I did not mess anything up.

Brenda: Yes, you did mess everything up!

Jason: His cousin is a judge.

Brenda: What, can his cousin give us an annulment?

Jason: Well, I hope so because I want to get back to Port Charles. I don't want to be here --

Brenda: "Oh, I miss her so much!"

Jason: You know, you could actually stay here in the jungle for a little while if you want.

Brenda: Do you want to help me?

Jason: No. Why did you bring that? We're here for one day!

Brenda: Because I'm high-maintenance, okay? Why do you have to pick on me for every single thing?

Jason: Because you're high-maintenance.

Brenda: All your fault. I told you we shouldn't have come to the Dominican -- Republic, and now we're here dealing with some guy's cousin in a hut.

[Brenda sighs]

Brenda: This place could actually be romantic if I was with somebody other than you.

Jax: Skye, why take the risk of staying here? Scott is going after the most vulnerable woman in the mix, and that's you.

Skye: Vulnerable? That's not an adjective people use to describe me.

Jax: Well, not many people know that side of you. So let me help.

Skye: Because you feel guilty?

Jax: Scott almost convicted Brenda and Jason, and they have very powerful allies.

Skye: Meaning I don't?

Jax: You have me.

Skye: I know after the way you defended me tonight you'll never desert me.

Jax: You're right. But if you get arrested, it'll be too late. That's why you need to leave now, immediately. Skye, I'll go with you for a little while, until you're settled in.

Skye: I've spent my whole life running.

Jax: No one can hurt you in Lisbon.

Skye: Jax, don't you see? It's the same old thing. It always looks better in the next town, the next country, the next continent.

Jax: Staying here could cost you your life.

Skye: I didn't kill Alcazar. There's no way that I could have shoved anyone off that terrace, no matter how drunk I was. I have to believe that. I have to believe in myself, and I do. For once, I do. I have faith in myself. No, it's not a lot, it's a little. But I know I might be a mean, vindictive drunk, but there's no way that I'm a killer.

Jax: Skye, you cannot afford to think this way.

Skye: I cannot spend the rest of my life looking over my shoulder. I have done that long enough.

Jax: You can come back when they find who really killed Alcazar.

Skye: Oh, Jax, that could take years. I -- I need to stay here. Now, I can't explain it, but I really -- I have a feeling that everything is going to work out.

Jax: You're making a huge mistake.

Skye: I can handle risking that, okay, as long as I know that I have somebody to count on, someone who's not going to desert me.

Jax: I won't do that. I already told you.

Skye: Well, then that's all I needed to hear.

Sonny: You -- you sneak into my wife's place of business, you upset her, and you disrupt the customers at the diner. And for what, to shoot blanks?

Man: I never meant to hurt anybody.

Sonny: Yeah, you didn't this time. But you know what you did do? I was having a private moment with my wife. We were enjoying each other's company, and now she's frightened. That concerns me.

[Siren]

Carly: Elizabeth must have called the cops.

[Carly sighs]

Sonny: Now, here's my problem. Should I let the cops take care of this, or should I let you go? After all, no one's been hurt, and my people have removed the gun from the alley. Dumping it in a trash can is kind of unprofessional, don't you think?

Man: I meant no --

Sonny: Shut up!

Ric: Shut up.

Sonny: Okay. We could -- we could take a stroll along the docks. It's pretty this time of day. You know what I mean? Huh? Now, do I press charges, or do I let you go?

Man: Like it never happened?

Sonny: Let him go. Let him go.

Carly: What -- he just tried to kill us, Sonny.

Ric: Somebody's definitely trying to send you a message.

Sonny: Follow him and find out who it is.

Ric: You got it.

Ned: What the hell are you thinking?

Faith: What's wrong with you?

Ned: Sending a shooter over to Kelly's in the middle of the day?

Faith: I have no idea what you're --

Ned: Stop right there! I just heard somebody tried to kill Sonny a little while ago in the cellar at Kelly's.

Faith: That is so unprofessional.

Ned: So what do you want? You want Sonny to retaliate? Is that it? Do you have any idea how much damage Jason could do?

Faith: After what happened to my dearly departed husband, I have some idea, yes.

Ned: We can't afford to take too many risks. Sonny will shut us down before we even get started. Are you listening to me?

Faith: Do you really think I would set up a hit on Sonny without clearing it with you first?

Ned: It wouldn't be the first time you went behind my back.

Faith: Are we going to fight about this again?

[Ned sighs]

Ned: You tell me.

Faith: How many times do I have to apologize about Zander?

Ned: I'll let you know.

Faith: I understand, Ned. I do. If I slip up again, our partnership is over.

Ned: That's right.

Faith: And that would be such a shame, you know, because we have so much work left to do.

Elizabeth: You know, I should have caught on right away. You were cashing in on all the things I couldn't deal with.

Courtney: You told me that you and Jason were finished.

Elizabeth: And all the reasons why -- the violence, the disappearing, the getting shut out of his life. I mean, that's how you knew what to work on, because I told you exactly what Jason needs.

Courtney: It isn't like that, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: You're even good at being secretive. Who knew?

Courtney: Okay, I am just not ready for the whole world to know about me and Jason yet, that's all.

Elizabeth: Oh, well, why not? I mean, the trial's over.

Courtney: Well, he's still married and so am I, sort of, and there's a lot of people to think about.

Elizabeth: You have that innocent routine down pat.

Courtney: It isn't a routine.

Elizabeth: Well, sure, it is. I mean, you have turned yourself into the perfect little mob girlfriend. You are everything I'm not.

Courtney: Don't you think that I get scared to death every time Jason leaves? I am worried sick right now. He's off in the Dominican Republic trying to get an annulment from Brenda, and who knows, maybe he won't come back. Maybe someone will get him or maybe he'll go to jail --

Elizabeth: This whole little frantic thing -- it's a nice touch.

Courtney: Whatever you say, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: You know, you have ice in your veins, Courtney, just like your brother.

Courtney: My brother has gone out of his way to be good to you.

Elizabeth: Yeah, yeah, and I like him as much as any normal person can. But your brother is a mob boss. He's supposed to be cold.

Courtney: You had a chance with Jason and you let it slip through your hands. Don't expect me to feel bad about it for the rest of my life.

Elizabeth: Listen to you -- the perfect little mob girlfriend protecting her turf. Jason couldn't have done any better for himself.

Mac: Firecrackers?

Sonny: That's right.

Mac: Why would kids be shooting off firecrackers in the alley?

Carly: Look, we've already been vandalized before. I mean, the pipes have been torn into.

Sonny: Yeah.

Mac: Did you file a police report?

Carly: We were a little busy with the murder trial, Mac.

Sonny: Look, there's nothing going on here.

Officer: The alley's clean, sir.

Sonny: You see? What did I tell you?

Carly: Listen, I can take you downstairs if you want. I can show you there are bullet holes down there. They're from about 80 years ago --

Mac: What if this guy shot up the diner? Innocent people could have got hurt, Sonny, just like always, from standing too close.

Sonny: Well, you know what, Mac? I'm concerned about that, too, but that's not what's going on here in the present situation.

Mac: I don't want to hear about any retaliation from this.

Sonny: It's no problem.

Mac: Yeah, I've got enough on my plate with this Alcazar murder.

Sonny: Okay.

Carly: Yeah, and you know what? Scotty Baldwin, too.

Mac: I'll handle the district attorney. You make sure whatever's going on doesn't escalate.

Sonny: It's firecrackers, I told you that. It's kids -- kids playing around with firecrackers.

Mac: Let's go.

Carly: Do you think Mac suspects anything?

Sonny: Doesn't matter. You did good.

Carly: Thanks. Who do you think sent that guy?

Sonny: Don't worry about it.

Carly: Well, do you think Ric can find anything out?

Sonny: Well, I mean, you know what? It's a simple assignment, you know? He either can do what I tell him to do or he can't.

Carly: Well, it's the kind of assignment that you would normally give Jason.

Sonny: Yeah, but Jason's not here.

Carly: So it looks like Ric was in the right place at the right time again, huh?

Sonny: Well, see -- you see the pattern? I mean, this was an assignment that Jason would have done, and he'd have done it perfectly, and I would have trusted everything he said.

Carly: And you don't trust Ric?

Sonny: Why should I? I don't need another right hand. I have Jason.

Brenda: So where is the cousin?

Jason: I don't know.

Brenda: That's because there is no cousin. We're stranded.

Jason: You know what? Then we'll wait 'til the storm's over, we'll get a taxi, we'll go back to the courthouse, and we'll pay someone else for the annulment, okay?

Brenda: I know, all right.

Brenda: Listen, I -- I did want you to know that I am grateful. You know, just that you agreed to marry me in the first place. I know this is about to be over and --

Jason: Well, I didn't really agree. You kind of --

Brenda: Well, yeah --

Jason: You kind of blackmailed me.

Brenda: You agreed. Well, "blackmail" is an unnecessary word. I mean, I suggested that you --

Jason: Well, no, you suggested that you were going to threaten to get Sonny.

Brenda: Well, I wasn't really going to do that.

Jason: Well, that's what you said.

Brenda: What, do you think you have to protect him from the evil Brenda?

Jason: Yeah, I did.

Brenda: So, were -- were you seeing Courtney already at that point or --

Jason: You know -- you know what? It's really none of your business.

Brenda: I mean, I know that you weren't in love with her yet because you like to take things slow in relationships, but -- is it possible that part of the reason why you married me was to keep Courtney away from you a bit --

Jason: No.

Brenda: Because she was getting a little too close?

Jason: No.

Brenda: Scary, isn't it? Having to actually feel something.

Jason: Brenda, just let it go.

Brenda: Did I hit a nerve?

Ric: Hi.

Carly: Hey -- oh --

Ric: Oh.

Carly: Hey.

Ric: I'm sorry. Just me.

Carly: It's all right. I'm just a little jumpy. Did you find Sonny?

Ric: Yeah. Everything's been taken care of.

Carly: It's a big deal that he asked you to follow through on this.

Ric: Well, maybe he's just starting to trust me a little bit.

Carly: Which would be nice.

Ric: Yeah.

Carly: I got to go back to Michael. Thank you again.

Ric: You're welcome.

Carly: Okay.

Elizabeth: Hey.

Ric: Hi.

Elizabeth: Are you okay?

Ric: Yeah, yeah, I'm fine now.

Elizabeth: Yeah, well, you scared me half to death going after that guy.

Ric: What was I supposed to do?

Elizabeth: Well, I certainly hope Sonny was impressed.

Ric: Well, maybe he was, maybe he wasn't.

Elizabeth: I just don't get why it's so important for Sonny to like you. Is it worth risking your life? I mean, Sonny has bodyguards to protect him, and for anything else that's important, he has Jason.

Ric: Oh, yes, yes. Jason the best friend, the right hand. Isn't that how it all works?

Elizabeth: Yeah. Yeah, Jason's all that, not to mention the guy who dates his sister. Ahem.

Ric: Wait a minute, you lost me.

Elizabeth: What, didn't you know that Jason and Courtney are together?

Ric: Really?

Elizabeth: Yeah. Big-time.

Jax: I want the finest wedding you've ever put together. Yeah, have the dress designed in Paris, and I want five-star food for the reception and a sea of white roses. I want white roses absolutely everywhere.

[Jax laughs]

Jax: Right. Sounds good. I'll talk to you soon.

Courtney: Well, that sounds like some wedding.

Jax: Yeah. It'll be the best, and my last.

Courtney: Hmm, a sea of white roses -- sounds wonderful.

Jax: What would your dream wedding look like?

Courtney: Oh, just a few people in a special place, you know, my friends, family. Maybe we'd come here afterwards.

Jax: That sounds like fun.

Courtney: I don't really care what kind of wedding I have, as long as I marry the man that I love and -- and he loves me. You know, the next time I take my vows will be the last.

Jax: Well, it sounds like you have someone specific in mind.

Brenda: So, what you didn't tell me is that this marriage has been about another woman this whole time.

Jason: No, it hasn't.

Brenda: Yes, it has.

Jason: No, I married you to help Sonny.

Brenda: So just tell me -- does Sonny know about you dating Courtney or not?

Jason: How is this any of your business, Brenda?

Brenda: Just tell me, I'm not going to say anything. It's not any of my business.

Jason: Good.

Brenda: I just -- I still want to know.

[Jason sighs]

Brenda: Come on, just tell me. Why do you have to be such a hypocrite for?

Jason: Why do you have to say that stuff?

Brenda: Because you are. The whole time you were yelling at me about me and Jax not seeing each other, you were dating Courtney --

Jason: I wasn't seeing Courtney and no one knows that we're seeing each other, okay --

Brenda: So where's the little love nest that you guys are hanging out at? Where do you guys -- where do you guys hang out?

Jason: Why do you say stuff -- what is that?

Brenda: [Singsong] Jason and Courtney

Jason: What is that -- what is that stupid voice?

Brenda: Sitting in a tree k-I-s-s-I-n-g

Jason: Where is this judge?

Brenda: [Normal voice] I'm bored. There is no judge, you idiot. We are stranded in the jungle.

Jason: Just shut up!

Brenda: Okay.

Jason: Okay, what?

Brenda: If you say "shut up" to me --

Both: One more time --

Jason: Shut up!

Brenda: I'm going to scream louder than you have ever heard --

Jason: Good! Shut up!

[Brenda screams]

Man: I'm here to give you the annulment.

A.J.: This is bad. The cops are all over me, asking all kinds of questions, Skye.

Skye: Yeah, I know. Scott and Taggert were here, too.

A.J.: You didn't tell them anything?

Skye: What's to tell?

A.J.: And you were right -- Baldwin is trying to pin this thing on you. Ugh.

Skye: I'm not the mystery woman. I didn't confess to anything.

A.J.: Yeah, well, they know that we bribed the eyewitness. And you were drunk at the scene of the murder.

Skye: Yeah, and don't forget I did sleep with Alcazar and I may or may not have blacked out.

A.J.: You didn't exactly help yourself when you were on the stand, either.

Skye: A.J., don't tell me you're actually panicked on my behalf? I'm flattered.

A.J.: Are you drunk? You look as guilty as hell.

Skye: I know. Isn't it wonderful?

Faith: Ahem. What would you call that, a meeting of the minds?

Ned: A meeting of some kind.

Faith: Hmm. We're on the same side, aren't we?

Ned: I'll let you know.

[Knock on door]

Faith: Okay, okay. What the hell are you doing here?

Man: One of Corinthos' guys caught me.

Faith: Shh! That's good!

Man: I think he's following me.

Faith: Well, I should hope so.

Man: That wasn't part of the plan.

Faith: You will be taken care of like we agreed.

Man: But what about Corinthos?

Faith: Shh --

Man: This guy ever catches up with me --

Faith: You knew who you were shooting at.

Man: I want my money.

Faith: You will get it! Get the hell out of here right now!

Ned: Who was that?

Faith: Just the maid.

Ned: At this hour?

Faith: Yeah. She wanted to make up the bed, but I told her not to bother.

[Elevator bell]

[Elevator door opens]

Alexis: Wow. That didn't take long at all.

Man: You lucked out.

Alexis: Thank you very much.

Man: Thank you.

Alexis: Thank you.

[Music plays]

Cameron: Alexis? Answer the door, Alexis.

Cameron: Alexis?

[Knocking]

Cameron: Alexis? I know you're in there.

Alexis: Alexis doesn't live here anymore.

[Knocking]

Sonny: Nice to see you, Ned.

Faith: It's working perfectly.

Edward: It costs to betray me. Ned should know that by now.

Faith: Well, he's about to pay up.

Edward: Let that be a lesson to you, as well, my dear.

A.J.: Ok, you want people to think you're guilty? All right, this is way too self-destructive even for me.

Skye: Actually, I'm feeling healthier than I ever have.

A.J.: Yeah, you must be plastered.

Skye: Hmm, no more usual than for this time of day.

A.J.: Then why do you seem so -- oh, my god, I almost said "happy."

Skye: I figured out how to get Jax back.

Elizabeth: I guess it is really the perfect arrangement. Jason and Sonny are best friends, and now Jason is dating Sonny's sister. It's one big happy family. I'm sure Sonny will be ecstatic.

Ric: His precious little baby sister dating his hit man? I doubt that.

Elizabeth: But Sonny arranged for Jason to guard Courtney in the first place. I mean, that's what -- that's what pushed them together. Why wouldn't he be all for it?

Elton: Ah --

Jax: Hey.

Elton: Mr. Jacks.

Jax: Please, sit down.

Elton: Oh, I am so pleased that you contacted me. You know, it must be that "great minds think alike" thing because, I tell you, I've just been bursting with tons of yummy ideas lately. I hope you don't mind, but I've taken the liberty of assembling a few of them for you. I don't think you'll be disappointed. You know, it's my life's mission to make sure that this wedding is the social event of the year.

Jax: Oh, well, that's exactly what we don't want.

Elton: Come again?

Jax: We just want to have a very, very beautiful wedding. You see, Brenda and I -- we've tried to marry before and it never worked. So, this time we're determined to get it right.

Brenda: So this is legal?

Man: You give me the money first. Sign here and it's like your marriage never happened.

Jason: Ah, yes, this is great. Okay.

Brenda: Excuse me.

Jason: Sit here. Don't hurt your hand. Here you go. Whew.

Brenda: Whew. I don't feel good. I can't sign this.

Jason: No, wait. This is -- Brenda, this isn't funny.

Brenda: I'm sorry. I'm -- I'm saying I don't feel well.

Jason: No, sign the paper.

Man: Can you tell me the problem, pretty lady?

Brenda: Because I love him.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Scott: There's nothing you're going to pull out of that kangaroo pouch that's going to save Skye.

Brenda: I'm sorry, I'm not signing the annulment papers.

Jason: Are you on drugs right now?

Sonny: You pull out a weapon, you better make sure the other guy is not standing.

Cameron: Open the door, Alexis, now.
