>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Faith: There's never been a better time to put pressure on Sonny.

Skye: My God -- someone else was here that night.

Scott: You're under arrest.

Skye: No.

Carly: Why are you so determined to send Courtney away from everything she has?

Ric: Sonny wants to keep Courtney away from his business.

Jason: Sonny's planning to send you to college out of state. We're going to go up to the cabin, and we're going to tell him.

Elizabeth: They're eloping.

Faith: My sources tell me both Sonny and Jason are out of town. Might be the perfect time to move against them.

Ned: You're right, Faith. It is a good time. And I've already moved.

Ric: Elizabeth! Elizabeth! Elizabeth -- wait. Hold up. What's going on? Elizabeth, why are you down here?

Elizabeth: Trying not to think about Jason.

Ric: Is there -- is there anything I can do to help? You know what? Why don't I just throw a little light on the situation?

Elizabeth: No, please, I -- I like it like this.

Ric: Okay. You know what? This is my fault. If I had -- I would've just let you keep going instead of stopping at the loft, you would've never seen Jason and Courtney.

Elizabeth: I needed to see it. It was the only way I could start to let go. But it didn't work. Jason and Courtney just looked so happy.

Courtney: How much farther?

Jason: Still a ways.

Courtney: Any chance we could just skip telling Sonny and just --

Jason: No, we owe it to Sonny to tell him to his face. Wait a minute. Here's the turn.

Courtney: Turn? I don't even see the road we're on.

Jason: Ah, come on. We're safe, remember?

[Tires screech]

Carly: When did you have time to plan all of this?

Sonny: What, you think the only calls I make are about business? You need me to help you out there with --

Carly: No.

Sonny: Here you go.

Carly: You know what? You had your chance. Thank you. And you already proved you don't know how to make a fire.

Sonny: Yeah, but what I do know is that if you throw matches in there with the flue closed, smoke's going to get all over the place.

Carly: Yeah, I knew that. It's that lever right there.

Sonny: Well, I don't want to boss you around, but maybe I should help you out with --

Carly: No, no. No, no, no. I've got it.

[Carly coughs]

Carly: It's not funny. You think this is funny? Come here. Come here.

Sonny: No --

Carly: Come here.

Sonny: What?

Carly: Kiss me.

Sonny: I'll kiss you. What are you doing?

[Carly laughs]

Cameron: It's a delicate situation, Baldwin. You can't pressure her right now.

Scott: Oh, I don't believe for a second that she suddenly remembered the real killer. We're taking her in. Let's go.

Alexis: If she jumps, you won't find out, will you?

Scott: What does this have to do with you?

Cameron: Just let Jax get her to safety. He's the only one she trusts right now.

Jax: Skye, it's okay. Just take it easy, okay? Let me help you.

Skye: Jax, I'm so sorry. I know that nobody wants to believe me. I -- I remember, though, now. I saw -- I saw her.

Jax: Who?

Skye: The real killer. She has dark hair, but I don't think it was Brenda. I really -- I don’t.

Jax: Just take it easy. I believe you.

Skye: You do?

Jax: Yes, I do.

Skye: Will you help me?

Jax: Of course I'll help you. I already told you I would help you. I need you to come over the railing. Okay? Would you please do that? Come on, Skye. You trust me. That's it.

Skye: Whoa!

Jax: It's okay, it's okay. I've got you, I've got you. I've got you. It's okay. There you go. Hey, it's all right. Did you see her face? Do you know who the killer is?

Jax: Tell me, Skye, what did you see?

Skye: I --

Jax: What'd you see?

Skye: I don't know. I -- all I remember is dark hair. I don't know about the rest.

Jax: Concentrate. Try to concentrate.

Skye: Okay, I --

Jax: Okay?

Skye: I saw a woman running away.

Jax: Okay.

Skye: And --

Jax: What else did you see?

Skye: I know she had dark hair and -- and she was wearing a dark coat and -- jeans. She was wearing jeans.

Jax: Did you see her face? Do you remember her face?

Skye: I don't know if I saw it. I don't remember.

Jax: It's okay, it's okay. This could come back to you any minute, okay? This could come back any moment, so we'll just run with what you gave me, we'll locate this woman, and we'll clear your name, all right?

Skye: Okay.

Jax: Okay. You'll be okay.

Scott: All right, cuff her.

Jax: Stay away from her.

Ned: Acting on an anonymous tip, the police will find the drugs, and Sonny and Carly will be arrested for narcotics trafficking.

Faith: Neat, clean, and ruthless.

[Phone rings]

Ned: Is it done? Good. Good. Now go tip off the cops. How about a cup of coffee and a ringside seat?

Elizabeth: I have no one to blame but myself. I didn't know what I wanted, and then there was Jason's job and his loyalty. And then he lied to me about something he was doing for Sonny and he just left me hanging, so I ended it.

Ric: And Jason just accepted it?

Elizabeth: Yeah. Yeah, that's what really surprised me. I thought he put some value on what we shared, and I thought just maybe he would have realized we had something worth saving if Courtney hadn't moved in.

Ric: Courtney stole him away from you.

Elizabeth: Anyway, it's all for the best. I mean, Carly never really liked me anyway. Now Sonny and his wife and his sister and best friend -- they can be one big, happy mob family and leave the rest of us alone.

Ric: You know what? I think you're forgetting one very important part of this equation here.

Elizabeth: Yeah? What's that?

Ric: What if Sonny doesn't like the fact that his precious baby sister is dating his hit man? Hmm? What if he hates the idea?

***********************************************

[Music plays]

Sonny: How's that? Too hot?

Carly: Impossible.

Sonny: How are you feeling?

Carly: Good.

Scott: The fact that she tried to jump proves she's guilty.

Jax: No, it just proves that you were hounding her, Baldwin.

Taggert: We have to arrest her whether you like it or not, Jax.

Jax: Hey, you know what? Back off. Back off.

Cameron: Hold it, hold it. The last thing she needs right now is a fight. And, Scott, if she goes anywhere after a suicide attempt, it should be the hospital for observation. Did you actually intend to kill yourself out there?

Skye: No, I just knew that nobody but Jax would believe me. I couldn't think of any other way to get him here before the police dragged me off to prison.

Scott: Well, that's usually where murderers go.

Alexis: Do you wake up ranting, Baldwin?

Scott: Are you representing her?

Alexis: No.

Scott: Then shut up and get out.

Cameron: Well, that's professional, Baldwin. Go ahead.

Skye: Look, I wasn't sure that I didn't kill Alcazar until tonight, okay? I remembered that there was a woman in the room that night. Now, she was wearing a dark coat. She had dark hair. She had jeans on. I --

Scott: Are you actually going to try and pin it on Brenda again?

Jax: Would you let her finish?

Skye: No, no, it wasn't Brenda. I don't think it was. She had dark hair, but I can't remember her face.

Scott: All right, enough of this circus. You're just buying time until you can cook up another suspect. Well, that's not going to happen. Taggert, read her her rights!

Taggert: All right, cuff her.

Jax: It's all right. I'm going to take care of it.

Skye: Jax --

Taggert: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can --

Jax: Baldwin, do you really want to arrest the wrong woman again, make an even bigger fool of yourself?

Scott: If I was you, I would let my fingers do the walking and find yourself an attorney for your ex-wife.

Jax: Skye's attorney's already here if she'll take the case.

Alexis: Jax, I -- I can't do that.

Skye: Alexis -- would you, please?

Jax: Come on, Alexis, you're the best there is. You defended Brenda. Will you do the same for Skye?

Alexis: I'll meet you at the station. I want to check on my daughter first.

Jax: Okay. Thank you.

Scott: Why are you guys standing around like seagulls? Get her out of here.

Skye: Will you please get my purse?

Scott: Let's go.

Cameron: Don't you think it's time you told me what's really going on?

Ned: Looks like they took Zander's tip seriously.

Faith: I'm impressed. You're very effective.

Ned: Don't sound so surprised.

Faith: I was just realizing what a good ally you make, what a bad enemy.

Ned: Remember which one you want to be. Kristina would hate what I'm doing. She always focused on the positive in everybody -- even me.

Faith: Why didn't you pick up on her positive thing?

Ned: Because I'm a Quartermaine and I was born cynical. Maybe if she'd lived long enough, she might be able to change me, but she didn't. She's gone. And now Sonny is going to pay for taking her away, and he's going to keep paying over and over until there's nothing left.

Ric: Look, you have to understand that Sonny wants to keep the violence in his life away from his family -- in this case, his sister. Can I trust you to keep a little secret?

Elizabeth: Try me.

Ric: Okay. Sonny's instructed me to find colleges for Courtney -- the farther away, the better. Now, does that sound like a man who wants his sister dating his hit man?

Elizabeth: Jason's more than just a hit man.

Ric: Oh, I'm sorry. Yeah, that was a little harsh.

Elizabeth: No, Ric, believe me, I am not naive. I know that Jason's job has its dark side, okay, but he does a lot for Sonny -- guarding Courtney, for one.

Ric: Okay, even if he was instructed to guard Courtney, I don't think it was Sonny's intention to have him start dating her. Don't you think that's maybe why they're not telling him?

Elizabeth: But if Sonny were to find out --

Ric: Oh. Courtney would be on the next plane to Switzerland.

Elizabeth: And that could be the best thing that's ever happened to Jason.

[Door opens]

Mac: Police, freeze! Don't move. Put your hands where I can see them.

Ric: Hey! What's going on here?

Mac: Go on, open it up. We had a tip that Sonny's storing drugs here. Now he and Carly are going to have to answer for it.

Carly: You know, for a male chauvinist, controlling freak --

[Sonny and Carly laugh]

Carly: You have the most gentle hands.

Sonny: Well, you provide a lot of incentive.

Carly: I wonder if anyone would believe me if I told them that big, bad Sonny Corinthos just washed my hair.

Sonny: Don't you dare tell anybody that.

Carly: Are you afraid that it might ruin the mystique of you being a cold and calculating, unfeeling human being, huh?

Sonny: What I am out there in my business happens because I love my family and I want to protect them --

Carly: I know.

Sonny: From my work and its dangers, whether they like it or not.

Carly: I know. I understand. Are you protecting me right now?

Sonny: I'm always protecting you.

Carly: I like it. Will you protect me some more?

Courtney: Okay -- no street lights, no cabin lights. It's official -- we're lost.

Jason: No, it's an adventure.

Courtney: Yeah, not even close. Adventures have guides and compasses and maps, even.

Jason: It's okay. We're going to get to the cabin soon. There aren't that many roads up here.

Courtney: This is a road?

Jason: Are you in a hurry?

Courtney: No, not at all. Just watch the -- no, I'm just fine here with you in our own little snow globe. It's great. Jason, watch out!

[Tires screech]

Jax: How you holding up?

Skye: Okay, I guess, except for the panic, confusion, and murder charge. Jax, I'm so sorry. I just -- I don't know what would've happened to me tonight if you hadn't shown up. You know me -- when in doubt, act out. I just didn't want to get you involved in another one of my messes. I know you have your own life now.

Jax: Don't worry about that, okay? All you have to know is -- is there is no way I'm letting you go to jail, and that's a promise.

Cameron: You okay?

Alexis: A man was stabbed and pushed over this railing to his death. I'm the one that found him, remember?

Cameron: Since you find the images so upsetting, I find it hard to believe that you'd take this case on.

Alexis: Jax is a friend of mine. He asked me to do it. I agreed.

Cameron: It's that simple? This is, what, the fourth defendant you've taken on in this case?

Alexis: I became an attorney because I believe that anyone accused of a crime deserves a defense, especially someone accused of killing Luis Alcazar. A horrible man, a killer, was murdered, and I don't think that anyone should have to pay for that.

Cameron: Do you think you can get Skye acquitted?

Alexis: She said she saw a woman. She didn't actually see the murder. I believe that I can build a case of reasonable doubt.

Cameron: What if Baldwin stumbled on the right suspect?

Alexis: Baldwin is a publicity whore. He doesn't care who killed Alcazar. He just cares about his record.

Cameron: Alexis -- you still haven't said if you think Skye killed Alcazar.

Alexis: No, I haven’t.

Mac: Did you see Carly or anyone else come down here tonight?

Ric: Look, Commissioner, Elizabeth has been with me most of the night. I guarantee you she has nothing to do with this. She works upstairs at Kelly’s. And if I don't miss my guess, there is another entrance into this place.

Mac: Yeah, I am aware of that entrance. All right, Elizabeth, you can go. But I would like you to stay for a while, Mr. Lansing, if that's all right.

Ric: Whatever you say.

Elizabeth: No. Wait -- wait a minute. He didn't do anything.

Ric: No, no, no, no, no. It's okay. Give us a minute, please? Listen, I want you to do me a favor.

Mac: All right, you guys --

Elizabeth: Anything. What?

Ric: This is Sonny's cell phone number. I want you to give him a call and let him know what's going on.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Ric: Thanks.

Elizabeth: Mm-hmm.

Mac: Box -- open it up.

Ric: All right, Commissioner, you've obviously found what you needed. I don't think there's anything else.

Mac: Just how involved with Mr. Corinthos are you?

Ric: Well, as a matter of fact, Mr. Corinthos relies on me more and more every day.

Carly: Are you happy with your life? If you could go back and change some things, would you?

Sonny: I like my life just the way it is. Especially you. You know, when we were apart, a night didn't go by that I didn't wake up reaching for you. And not just because you're sweet, gentle, great-looking.

[Carly laughs]

Sonny: I missed you because you're a part of me. And even though I never say it, even though we fight and, you know, sometimes you're wrong, I am -- I just want you to know that I still love you.

Carly: Not that you asked, but I wouldn't change a thing, either.

Sonny: Yeah, you would.

Carly: Excuse me?

Sonny: Well, I mean, you know, if it were up to you, you'd be richer sooner, have more clothes, more jewelry.

Carly: Oh, no, no, no, no. Okay, all right. So, then, I'm just so -- I don't know what I am -- shallow?

Sonny: No.

Carly: Materialistic? Is that what I am?

Sonny: No, you like nice things.

Carly: Yeah. So do you.

Sonny: Right.

Carly: Mr. I have 33 suits, and I'm not even including your summer wardrobe.

Sonny: And that's why I got you something nice.

Carly: How nice?

Sonny: Well, you're going to have to tell me how nice. You ready? You ready?

Carly: No.

Sonny: Here you go.

Carly: You don't have to get me jewelry, Sonny.

Sonny: Don't get all noble on me now.

Carly: Who, me? Really, just knowing that you think about me is enough.

Sonny: I'm always thinking about you. Would you open it already?

Carly: Okay, okay. Sonny!

Sonny: [Mocking Carly] What?

Carly: It's beautiful! Oh, I love it.

Sonny: [Normal voice] Yeah? You like it?

Carly: Yeah.

Sonny: All right. You sure?

Carly: Look at that. Yeah, I'm sure.

Sonny: It's gorgeous. And how you going to thank me?

Carly: Well, how would you like me to thank you? Hmm?

Sonny: Well, I mean --

Carly: I think maybe I could come up with a little something.

Sonny: Yeah? You think so?

Carly: Yeah, let me see.

Sonny: What do you think?

Carly: This.

Sonny: Oh.

Carly: Oh.

Sonny: All right. Hallelujah. Okay. All right.

[Phone rings]

Carly: Oh. Don't get that. Don't --

Sonny: What?

Carly: Don't get it.

Sonny: I got to get it.

Carly: Don't get it.

Sonny: No, because it -- no, it's an emergency. You know, it has -- no, listen. Listen to me. It's got to be an emergency --

[Carly groans]

Sonny: Because only Jason and Ric have --

Carly: Yeah, so --

Sonny: Okay. Yeah. Elizabeth? Well, how'd you get this number?

Elizabeth: Ric gave it to me, and he told me to call you right away. There's trouble.

Sonny: What happened?

[Sonny sighs]

Sonny: Okay. I'll be -- yeah, I'll be there.

Carly: What?

Sonny: I'm sorry.

Carly: What?

Sonny: You know, I just -- we got to go. We got to go.

Courtney: Jason? Jason? Jason, are you all right? Are you okay? Talk to me, Jason. Are you okay? Are you okay?

Jason: Yeah, I'm okay.

Courtney: Are you sure? You could've hit your head. You weren't wearing your seat belt.

Jason: Are you okay? Your head --

Courtney: Yeah, no, I'm fine. I'm fine. Where's your phone? Oh. Here it is. Okay. We need to call Sonny or -- we need to get help.

Jason: It's dead. The battery's cracked. We're not going another foot in this storm.

Jason: We're wedged in between trees. We need to be towed out.

Courtney: So we're stranded?

Jason: Temporarily. We'll just have to wait the storm out and then hike for help.

Courtney: If we don't freeze first.

Jason: It won't be so bad.

Courtney: Yeah, I know. You'll take care of me. And, hey, it's not like I'm helpless.

Jason: That's one of the things I like about you.

Courtney: Yeah? Well, if we get bored, will you -- will you list the others?

Jason: Yeah.

Courtney: Okay. All right, well, first, there's a blanket in back. Nice. And I have a thermos full of coffee. I think we can keep pretty warm if we try. Ooh. See, I'm warming up already. Except for my nose.

Ric: You were responding to a tip, I guess, huh?

Mac: That's right.

Ric: Anonymous?

Mac: So?

Ric: Yeah, clearly called in by the person who planted these drugs in the first place.

Mac: Well, that's none of your concern, now, is it? All I need from you is Sonny and Carly's location.

Ric: No, I think you're missing the point here, Commissioner. There's something that you need, and that would be a warrant. Hmm? Yeah, you know what a warrant looks like, right, boys? When cops have it, they usually flash it around like some kind of a flag. You took a chance that there was something here.

Mac: You're free to go. This is a secure area, so you need to leave.

Ric: It's just very interesting to me that the suspect crate was opened at the point where the drugs were stashed and they were right on top of the packing, where no amateur smuggler would even dare to put product. Not to mention the street value of this thing. Come on, it's laughable. It's not even worth shipping.

Mac: I asked you to leave.

Ric: No, I'm afraid I can't do that, Mr. Commissioner. I have to gather evidence here for a lawsuit.

Mac: What lawsuit?

Ric: Well, harassment, illegal search, property damage, conspiracy.

Mac: Conspiracy?

Ric: Yes, you and your snitch. I'm going to have to get your badge numbers, boys.

Mac: Your clients are still going to have to come down and answer charges. Have them at the station before the weekend.

Ric: Uh-huh. Sure.

Mac: All right, you guys, go on, clear out. You know what? You seem like a smart man, Mr. Lansing. There are better ways to earn a living than pulling guys like Sonny out of the fire. I'd think about quitting while you're ahead. People around Sonny generally end up hurt or dead.

Elizabeth: Sonny's on his way.

Ric: Oh, thanks for doing that.

Elizabeth: It was nothing. But what you just did right here was very impressive.

Ric: Nah.

Elizabeth: You're an amazing lawyer.

Ric: Thanks. It's a learned skill. But he does have a point.

Elizabeth: What do you mean?

Ric: Well, when and if I win Sonny's trust and friendship, his enemies are going to become mine. And believe me, Sonny has some very powerful enemies.

Ned: Nice work, Zander.

Zander: There's too much here.

Ned: Extra incentive never hurts. You're proving yourself every day.

Zander: Thanks.

Ned: I'm glad I took another chance on you. I'll be in touch.

Scott: You need to get out of here, go back to your fiancée, because Skye and I need to discuss the charges against her.

Jax: I don't think so.

Scott: Look, I'm running the show here. Otherwise I'll throw you back in your old cell. Okay? Now, do you want to confess now, or you want to wait till open court? But if you sing now, I might make a deal with you --

Jax: You can't talk to Skye without her attorney present, so why don't you just run along.

Scott: I can talk to her any way I want. I mean, she doesn't have to answer, but if she was smart --

Alexis: My client has nothing else to say.

Scott: She would talk to me. What?

Alexis: I said my client has nothing else to say. And you, my friend, are leaving.

Scott: Come on, come on. We both know she's the killer. Look at her. Look at her. Looks like a killer.

Jax: I'll leave you two to get to work. I'll be right outside.

Skye: Jax, thanks again. Thank you.

Alexis: All right, Skye, two things before we start. First, I hope that you can get past the very tough cross-examination that I put you through. It had to be done. Second, I want you to remember this is not an attorney-client conference room, that this is an interrogation room, and sometimes the opposition will be sitting at this table, but all the time they will be right outside that mirror. Behind the mirror there, they're listening to everything that goes on in here. Are you okay with that? All right. I want you to concentrate, and I want you to tell me everything that you remember about the killer.

Skye: I told them this already. I saw a woman -- dark hair, dark coat, jeans -- running away.

Alexis: I want you to think about the details. Think about her hands. Was she wearing jewelry?

Skye: I -- oh, Alexis, I don't know. It was so quick. I was drunk.

Alexis: All right, all right. What about images? Think -- think about images.

Skye: I --

Alexis: Is it possible you just saw her from behind?

Skye: She was running away, yes. I -- I don't know. There was something else.

Alexis: Something about her or something else?

Skye: Something about her. Oh, God, there's something more. I just -- I know there is. I -- I can't make myself see it.

Alexis: All right, let's just start with small sections and we'll just build from there.

Alexis: A color? Anything?

Skye: I -- oh, it's gone. I'm sorry.

Alexis: It's okay. It's okay. We can work on it tomorrow.

Scott: All right, girls, tea party's over. Time for you to be processed.

Alexis: This arrest warrant is on the razor's edge of fraud. The voice match hasn't even been confirmed by a professional.

Scott: Confirmation is pending.

Alexis: You have no grounds for an arrest. But if you want to push your luck, we can take it back to a judge and you can explain your evidence to both of us.

Scott: I haven't got time to wait. Your client's guilty. You're free to go. Get out there, sip a few martinis, because soon you're going to be in the big dollhouse.

Skye: Alexis, thank you so much for doing this.

Alexis: I'm happy to help.

Alexis: What are you doing here?

Cameron: Baldwin wanted my opinion as to Skye's fitness to stand trial.

Alexis: And?

Cameron: I had a tough time evaluating her. Couldn't keep my eyes off you.

Alexis: Is this some weird pickup line?

Cameron: I'm not sure.

Alexis: Okay, well, your timing is really off. Anything else?

Cameron: Night, Alexis.

Alexis: Good night.

Courtney: I have a confession to make.

Jason: What?

Courtney: I was afraid. I was afraid for myself that -- that we would never have a chance to be together.

Jason: I'm sorry it was hard on you. But you're strong.

Courtney: You know, I -- I learned about how much I cared for you at the trial.

[Jason coughs]

Courtney: You okay? Here, let me get you some coffee.

[Jason coughs]

[Jason groans]

Carly: What happened? If the police broke those fixtures, I'm going to sue.

Sonny: Fill me in.

Ric: Well, Mac came in with some uniforms off of a phony tip. Found a drug plant in the first crate of light fixtures he opened.

Sonny: What and how much?

Ric: Coke. Not a lot, but enough to be a problem.

Sonny: What did Mac say?

Ric: Well, he was going to bring you up on trafficking charges and close Carly's club.

Carly: Oh, no way. He can't do that.

Elizabeth: But they won't because of Ric.

Sonny: Okay. What else?

Elizabeth: Well, Ric got rid of them for you. Sonny, you should've seen him. He was amazing. He lawyered Mac to little pieces.

Ric: Just doing my job.

Sonny: Okay, did you try to reach Jason? Because he could be back from the Dominican Republic now. What?

Ric: Jason's back, but I -- I thought that you wanted to handle this on your own.

Sonny: Okay, wait. Where -- you know what? We were just trying to have some quiet time together. It was very important to us. Jason has full authority to handle these things.

Ric: Okay, I'm sorry. I made a mistake. I won't do it again.

Elizabeth: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Ric isn't telling you everything.

Ric: Elizabeth, don't, okay?

Elizabeth: No, I'm not going to let him come down on you for no reason. What Ric is being careful not to say is Jason left town again, with Courtney, and it looked to me like they were eloping.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Luke: I don't want anyone but Laura.

Bobbie: Have you stopped seeing Summer?

Lucky: I'm just trying to figure out who you are.

Summer: It's a waste of time.

Nikolas: I am offering you a clean start. Take the money.

Sonny: How long have you known about Jason and Courtney?

Courtney: Are you all right?
