>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Jax: Tracy is primed to fall right into my trap.

Carly: These are the paternity results.

Monica: I know you have cancer.

Faith: No!

Sonny: Jason is out of control. He went after Faith. If somebody doesn't stop him, he's going to kill her. Ric's on his way. You know what to do next.

Jason: Consider it done.

Ric: I might not live through the night.

Faith: I'm the target.

Jason: Very good.

Emily: Ok, I'm just tired, that's all. I obviously have no tolerance for recreational drugs.

Monica: Did you hear me, Emily? I've seen your medical records.

Emily: All right, look; I just want to go home. Ok? I'll have some dinner and I'll have a good night's sleep.

Monica: I had them do a C.T. scan, and they found a mass on your breast.

Emily: Ok, look, I don't want to hear this again! I don't want to hear that I have breast cancer, ok?

Monica: Here, sweetie.

Edward: Emily's in the hospital?

Reginald: Yeah. Monica wanted to run some tests.

Alan: What sort of test? Why wasn't I informed?

A.J.: Is she all right?

Edward: Of course not.

Alan: Does Monica know what's wrong?

Reginald: You'll have to ask her.

Edward: Well, we will.

Alan: I'll go with you.

A.J.: I'll drive.

Skye: Should I come with you?

Edward, Alan, and A.J.: No!

Tracy: Look at them all, stampeding out. She probably just fainted from a lack of food. Girls that age are so neurotic about their weight.

Skye: Emily's not neurotic. She eats normally.

Tracy: You're defending the prodigal daughter? I'm so surprised. I would have thought you'd be jealous.

Skye: Why should I be?

[Tracy chuckles]

Tracy: Are you kidding? Everybody in this house dotes on her. She's not even Alanís biological daughter -- I'm sorry. I forgot -- neither are you. Oh, well, maybe when they find out, they'll be equally -- no. You'll be out.

Carly: Oh. Ric's the father.

Courtney: No, no, no, no, no!

Carly: Sonny's going to kill --

Courtney: Carly, Carly, Carly, Sonny's the father.

Carly: What?

Courtney: Look, it's right here.

Carly: Let me see. Oh, my God. Thank God. Thank you, thank you.

Courtney: You and Sonny are going to have a baby.

Carly: It's Sonny's baby. It's mine and Sonny's. Oh, my God.

[Courtney laughs]

Carly: It's so wonderful.

Courtney: Oh, I'm so happy for you guys.

Carly: Courtney, thank you. Thank you so much for just being there and being my friend. You've been such a good friend.

Courtney: I'm glad I could help.

Carly: I don't know what I would have done without you.

Courtney: Well, I'm just sorry that you had to go through the hell of worrying, you know, and wondering what if.

Carly: That's so weird because in my heart I knew that it was Sonny's baby, but something --

Courtney: Yeah, every time you turned around, Ric was there, threatening you. Hey. He can't hurt you anymore. Come on, Ric has lost his power over you, Carly. Sonny's the father. You know, if you want, you could just let this whole thing go.

Carly: No. I have to tell Sonny. He needs to know how dangerous Ric is and he needs to know what Ric did to me.

Ric's voice: Hi. You've reached Ric Lansing. Leave a message.

[answering machine beeps]

Elizabeth: Hey. It's me again. I've called you five times and you're still not answering. I'm really concerned about you. You need to call me as soon as you get this, ok?

Taggert: Hey. Can I get a cup of coffee, black, no sugar, to go?

Elizabeth: Mm-hmm.

Taggert: You all right?

Elizabeth: No, actually, I'm scared out of my mind. A friend of mine is missing, and I think he's in trouble.

Taggert: Who's the friend?

[Elizabeth sighs]

Elizabeth: My boyfriend, Ric Lansing.

Taggert: Sonny's attorney?

Elizabeth: Yeah. I think he -- he might have gotten on the wrong side of Jason and Sonny.

Taggert: How?

Elizabeth: I don't know. I don't know. He doesn't tell me about his business. But he did tell me he might not live through the night.

Sonny: Hey!

Ric: Hey! Sonny.

Sonny: Faith's silent partner. We finally meet. For a Harvard graduate, you've made some pretty stupid moves there, Ric -- working with Faith, walking right into a trap.

Ric: Sonny, Faith -- Faith was a threat to you. I had to protect you.

Sonny: It's -- it's over. Your last mistake was shooting Faith.

Ric: No, Sonny, just give me a minute to explain, ok?

Sonny: I'm not giving you a minute. You're going down for the hit at the club that almost killed my pregnant wife, for the bullet that crashed through Jasonís window, missed my sister by inches, for your lies, and the terror you inflicted on my family. You understand what I'm saying?

Ric: Listen to me.

Sonny: There's only one thing you get to say before I take you out. Why'd you do it?

Jason: All right, bring her in.

[Faith moans]

Jason: Right there, that chair.

Faith: What if I scream?

Jason: Go ahead, try it.

Faith: So in other words, I can yell my head off and no one will hear? And the phone rings and I'm dead, right?

Jason: That's it.

Ric: Where's Faith?

Sonny: What does it matter?

Ric: Was she in on this?

Sonny: You want to know who set you up? Me. It wasn't very hard, not like the scam you started running when you hit town. You worked very hard, but I wasn't buying it.

Ric: You made me your lawyer, all right? You trusted me.

[Sonny laughs]

Sonny: That's what I wanted you to believe. I never trusted you, Ric.

Ric: No, I've proven myself to you, Sonny, all right? I got Brenda and I got Jason off of murder convictions. I've done everything --

Sonny: You were convenient. I knew you were working an agenda. I just didn't think you were stupid enough to team up with Faith. So I shut you down, you start sucking up to Carly, offering to help her out with her club, using my wife to get access to me.

Ric: I'm the best lawyer you've ever had.

Sonny: Well, that's not saying very much because Iíve had, you know, some problems with lawyers lately. That's why I knew better not to put any faith in you. But I let you think I did. I told you how great you were doing. Right? Pretended to believe your lies.

Ric: I proved myself to you, Sonny. I took a bullet for you. I could have rolled over on you 10 times and I never did.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah! You get an A for effort and persistence. Nobody hanged in there like you did, Ric. Wow! But why? Why'd you go through all the trouble? Why didn't you just kill me? You had so many chances. You wanted me alive, you wanted me to suffer, and you wanted to hang around and watch. Why? It's over now. I'm just curious. Why'd you do it?

Ric: Ask your wife.

Sonny: Could you say that -- I didn't hear you?

Ric: I said ask your wife. Ah! Ah.

Sonny: Don't ever touch my wife.

Ric: Oh --

Sonny: Watch him till I get back.

Carly: I have to tell Sonny because I promised him there would be no more secrets between us. And I'd want the same thing from him.

Courtney: Sonny adores you. He'll understand that what happened wasn't your fault.

Carly: Well, thinking logically and calmly is not his strong suit.

Courtney: I know. I know, but you're doing the right thing.

Carly: Why I am so terrified then? You know, I don't want Sonny to doubt me. God, I want him to doubt me ever again, and I have given him so many reasons to in the past. Last time we got back together, Courtney, I promised him that I wouldn't go behind his back anymore. I promised him he could trust me, I told him there would be no more lies, and now I've just lied for -- for months.

Courtney: Carly, you were protecting him.

Carly: All right, no, I have to tell him. I have to. He needs to know all this.

Courtney: You know, you do realize that Sonny will kill Ric.

Carly: Yeah, and he deserves it.

Zander: Is it ok if I go see Emily in her room?

Bobbie: Oh, Monicaís still with her.

Zander: Well, maybe I could just go peek in and check, you know, let her know that Iím here.

Bobbie: Zander, I'm sorry, but Monica specifically asked that they not be interrupted.

Zander: Ok.

Edward: So which room is Emilyís?

Zander: 518.

Edward: Let's go.

Zander: Wait, wait, wait. You're not allowed to go in there.

Alan: What do you mean, we're not allowed?

Edward: Well, that's absurd.

Alan: I'm her father, for God's sake.

Edward: Step aside. Come on.

Zander: No, Monicaís in there with Emily. She doesn't want them disturbed.

Alan: That applies to you, not us.

Edward: Monica was telling you to leave.

A.J.: Well, obviously, Em's family can visit.

Zander: Look, you don't believe me? Ask Bobbie.

Edward: Look, this is preposterous. What is wrong with Emily, and why are the men in this family the last to know?

Zander: It's not my place to say.

Edward: Oh, good lord. You haven't gotten her pregnant, have you?

Zander: No, but I wish I had.

Edward: Oh, yeah, and no doubt. Emily is due to inherit a rather large trust fund, and a baby would cinch the deal. Was that in your thinking, hmm?

Zander: No. I wish she was having a baby so she wasn't having to go through what she really is.

Alan: What is that supposed to mean?

Zander: Well, she didn't want anybody to know, but you're her family, and for her to get better, I guess you have to know. Emily's back on drugs.

Edward: You are entirely responsible for this.

Zander: I know.

Emily: I got the flu, but it wouldn't go away, and I went to see the doctor, who examined me and found a tiny little lump. And I'd done a self-exam just the week before and I hadn't felt a thing. And the doctor ordered a mammogram, and it didn't even show up. And he said it was probably nothing, but he let the gynecologist check it out. And the gynecologist said it was probably nothing, but sent me to get it checked by somebody else. And the third guy said it was probably nothing, but did -- he did a biopsy just to be safe. And a few days later, he was on the phone, and he said, "unfortunately, we do have a problem." "A problem," "we."

Monica: Yeah. Yeah, I know how I felt when I was told. I mean, it was like -- oh, my God -- terror and panic and Iím the only one that this could possibly happen to. And then actually, it wasn't even until I went to the support group where I met your mom that I realized there were other people that were going through this.

Emily: Yeah. My mother said that her life literally flashed before her eyes.

Monica: Oh, yeah, yeah. You rail and rant and blame God. "Why me?" And all of that.

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Monica: And then there's always denial.

Emily: Uh-uh, nope. I know exactly what Iím up against.

Monica: Well, good. So you know that you can just start fighting right now.

Emily: My mother -- she fought every step of the way, ok, and she still died.

Monica: Oh, Em. Em, they have made incredible breakthroughs since Page was diagnosed.

Emily: No, she went through agony with the treatments, and I watched her lose the battle day by day and month after month.

Monica: Look, Em, your mother was the most courageous woman Iíve ever --

Emily: No, just a little -- a tiny piece of her breast at first, just a few dozen lymph nodes, right? And then her hair and then her eyebrows and then her eyelashes and then her entire left breast --

Monica: Look, Emily, Emily --

Emily: And then her right --

Monica: Emily, like I said --

Emily: And then --

Monica: There are many, many breakthroughs. It doesn't have to be like that.

Emily: Because I won't let it be! All right? I won't die like my mother and I won't be poisoned and I won't be mutilated and fed lie after medical lie!

Monica: What are you saying?

Emily: I'm going to live, Mom, as normally as possible with my hair and with my eyebrows and with my breasts, and I'm going to grab -- I'm going to grab every moment that I have with Zander and with my family and with my friends, and then I'm going to die with as much dignity as possible.

Monica: You're refusing to undergo treatment?

Emily: I'm in treatment now, ok, which is why Zander thought that I was on drugs.

Monica: What kind of treatment?

Emily: I flew to Mexico and enrolled in a kind of clinical trial. It's a new alternative therapy. It's all natural, no poison chemo, just natural extracts which are injected into your arm five times a day. And Zander saw the syringes and thought that I was on narcotics.

Monica: Where did you hear about this?

Emily: There's a huge amount of information on the Internet, and I haven't been through all of it yet.

Monica: Well, that doesn't mean that you're not going to explore other options, are you?

Emily: I don't know. I mean, lots of programs are in other countries, and now that Iím home, I just want to stay. I don't want to be away from you or from dad and Zander and my family and my friends.

Monica: No. Of course you're going to be with us.

Emily: I'm just looking to stay comfortable and pain free.

Monica: Absolutely, while you get better.

Emily: You need to be realistic.

Monica: I am, Em. I am. I mean, look at me. I went through the medical protocol right here in General Hospital.

Emily: Look, I'm not interested in medical protocol.

Monica: Why not?

Emily: Because I don't want to destroy my body. I don't want to lose my hair.

Monica: Oh, hair grows back.

Emily: Ok, breasts donít.

Monica: You can have breasts reconstru--

Emily: It's like some never-ending treadmill, Mom. It's surgery after surgery and just pieces of your body gone, one after the other, and for what, huh? The cancer is always there. It's just lurking in some hidden cells they're never going to find, just ready to start and I know millions of women are planning to do the same thing.

Emily: Uh-uh.

Monica: They've lived through it.

Emily: Not women my age.

Monica: But if it's detected early --

Emily: Mom, look --

Monica: And it hasn't --

Emily: I read an article from a medical journal on the Internet, and it said that the younger women are, the more aggressive their cancer is.

Monica: Well, that's just a theory.

Emily: Look, I have my mother's genes, all right? Nothing could save her, and nothing's going to save me, either.

Monica: Ok, listen. We don't have to make this decision right now. I just want you to promise me one thing, will you?

Emily: Ok. What?

Monica: Will you please just -- well, will you go ahead with the tests and will you listen to the oncologists?

Emily: I need a promise in return.

Monica: Ok.

Emily: I don't want anyone to know that Iím sick, ok?

Monica: No. This is just between you and the family. It's --

Emily: No. Uh-uh. They can't know, ok, and Zander can't either. You have to swear to me that you will let them believe that Iím hooked on painkillers.

Monica: Emily, family can be really important right now. They're a wonderful support group, really.

Emily: Ok, look, I don't want to see the fear on their faces, all right, or listen to them trying to reassure me and trying to find hope when I know that in their hearts they are absolutely terrified that I'm going to die.

Monica: What about Zander?

Emily: Mom, he would be there for me for every treatment and every surgery, and he would stay with me for every -- every minute that he could. And inside, he would be dying, too.

Monica: Well, he could be a lot stronger than you think, you know.

Emily: I don't want to share this with him, all right? I just want to make him happy before I have to -- before I have to break his heart.

Monica: Oh, Em.

Emily: All right, please, Mom. Will you help me?

Tracy: We agreed on the price -- $5 million, payable either wire transfer, E.L.Q. stock, or a certified check.

Skye: Hmm. I can't imagine any amount of money could equal the sadistic joy that you will feel after seeing me humiliated and cast from the Quartermaine clan.

Tracy: You're right about that. It would be delicious. However, I have other priorities.

Skye: Really? Like what? Buying your own mansion?

Tracy: Hmm. Let's just say Iím under a lot of pressure.

Skye: Oh. I'm so sorry to hear that.

Tracy: My philosophy of stress management is to pass the stress along. You have 24 hours to pay the five million. Then it goes to six million. You have 48 hours to pay the six million, then I move to plan B.

Skye: Renegotiating?

Tracy: Daddy's money in exchange for a notarized promise to rid the family of you.

Jax: Good evening, ladies.

Skye: Jax. Just in time.

Jax: For what?

Skye: For a walk in the garden. The air in here is getting quite stifling.

Jax: Well, I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I'm actually here to see Tracy. I hope you don't mind me stopping by to see you.

[Tracy chuckles]

Tracy: No. You can see me anytime you like.

Jax: Well, I took the liberty of arranging something that I think you might enjoy.

Tracy: I'm sure I will.

Jax: Would you care to join me on the terrace?

Faith: So what's with the switch in location, huh? What's the plan here? Is Sonny waiting for my silent partner? So what, he -- he nails Mr. X, calls you, gives the order, and that's it? "Good night, Faith"? What if nobody shows up? What if Sonny says, "what the hell, kill her anyway"? Is that the deal? How about a little creativity here, huh? I mean, we could be waiting a really long time -- you know, nothing to do, nobody to do it with. That could bore even you. How about a final meal? I mean, shouldn't I at least get that? A little -- a little caviar on toast, maybe? Oh, a last martini? Yeah, I like them dirty. How about you? How do you take yours? Apple martini, I bet, huh? Or maybe a -- a round of mattress tag. I know that you think you wouldn't enjoy it, but I swear, I have some hidden talents. You know, the cops are all over this feud between me and Sonny. That guard outside might be undercover! If something happens to me, they will know exactly who did it. You know that they will come right to you! I mean, God, won't that be a little inconvenient, legally as well as personally, and isn't Courtney going to be absolutely horrified if you make me disappear?

Jason: No.

Courtney: You know, Carly, you don't have to tell Sonny right away. You could wait a day or two.

Carly: I know myself. If I don't tell him right now, I may not tell him.

Sonny: What are you guys talking about? Is something wrong with the baby?

Carly: No. The baby's fine. There's some things, though, that we need to discuss.

Courtney: Hey, Iím -- I'm going to go get some coffee. I'll be around if you need me, ok?

Carly: Thanks.

Sonny: Is there something going on here that I don't know about?

Carly: Yeah. I had two tests earlier, Sonny. I had the amnio and --

Sonny: Are the results in?

Carly: Yeah. Dr. Meadows says the baby's healthy.

[Sonny snaps fingers]

Sonny: Told you.

Carly: Yeah, you did.

Sonny: How come you're not happy?

Carly: I am happy. Can you --

Sonny: What's going on? What's wrong?

Carly: I had a paternity test --

Sonny: What do you mean?

Carly: To get -- the baby is yours, Sonny.

Sonny: Right.

Carly: You are the father, but I thought it was Ric's.

Jax: You're as charming and as intriguing as the last time we met, Tracy.

Tracy: Flatterer.

Jax: Flattery's easy with a beautiful woman such as yourself.

Tracy: And you are exactly as I remember you -- a perfect gentleman.

Jax: Am I? We've always had a connection, haven't we?

Tracy: I think all women feel connected to you, which brings me to my next question -- what is the real motive behind this seductive, romantic dinner?

Jax: Smart, too. I like that in a woman.

Tracy: Really? Is that why you married what's-her-name?

[Jax chuckles]

Jax: Skye and I had a rocky courtship. She was a challenge. She was fascinating, she was frustrating, she was sexy. I'm not sure if I was in love or I simply felt Iíd met my match.

Tracy: You know, I must confess I really can't picture the two of you together.

Jax: Well, the warning signs were all there, that's for sure. But I proposed anyway. It was a very short marriage, ended in a bitter divorce, and she took me to the cleaners in the settlement.

Tracy: Gee, you sound angry.

Jax: Not so much angry. Just a little upset that I got taken advantage of. Now, you come along with this brilliant plan to blackmail her while targeting her biggest weakness -- her need to belong. Where'd you ever come up with the idea to challenge Skye's paternity?

Tracy: Well, that's the beauty of the thing. It's the absolute truth. Alan is not Skyeís father.

Faith: Well, you probably don't give much thought to the afterlife. You know what? Even on death row they bring in a priest for one final prayer. Like maybe, could you bring somebody in here? Maybe keep me a little company in my final --

[phone rings]

Faith: Don't jump to conclusions. That could be anybody. That could be -- that could be a wrong number, a telemarketer.


Faith: It could be a change of plan.


Jason: Yeah.

Courtney: Jason, it's me.

Jason: Courtney --

Courtney: I'm -- I'm at the hospital. You need to get here fast.

Jason: What happened?

Courtney: The amnio's fine, the baby's healthy, but Sonny's in with Carly right now, and I -- I think you should be here, too.

Jason: All right. I'm on my way. Marco, you stay with Faith.

Faith: I'm liking Courtney more and more!

Sonny: You slept with Ric?

Carly: Not willingly.

Sonny: He forced you? When did this happen? Huh? What did he do to you?

Carly: The night that The Cellar opened, I saw you kissing Brenda and I thought that our marriage was over.

[Sonny sighs]

Sonny: You slept with Ric?

Carly: No, I didn't.

Sonny: What --

Carly: I went to Jakeís. This guy came on to me. I didn't know at the time it was Faith's guy. It was Fowler. And he drugged my drink. Sonny, I could barely stand. I couldn't think straight. Ric showed up, and he -- he made Fowler go away, and I asked him to call Jason, and he said he would, but he never did. And then he took me a motel and he raped me.

Jax: You're a very creative woman.

Tracy: I'm glad you noticed.

Jax: But seeing Rae in another man's arms -- well, I'm sure you were exaggerating just a little bit for fun.

Tracy: No, I was not.

Jax: Weren't you?

Tracy: That plum actually fell right into my lap. Gretel Rae was cheating on Alan, so I got to use it against her to get rid of her, and now I get to use it against her little daughter and get rid of her.

Jax: Well, the fact that Rae was having an affair doesn't rule Alan out as the father, now, does it?

Tracy: Well, except that she knew Alan wasn't the father, which is why she folded so quickly and left town.

Jax: Well, you certainly have all the bases covered, don't you?

Tracy: Now all I have to do is sit back and wait for my reward.

Jax: After the hell Skyeís put me through, this is the least she deserves. Would you consider a partnership?

Tracy: I would love to collaborate with you. However, this project is a fait accompli.

Jax: Tracy, there must be something I can do to help.

Tracy: I bet if we put our heads together, we'll come up with something.

Alan: How's Emily?

A.J.: Is Emily on drugs?

Edward: Is she in pain?

A.J.: Can we see her?

Alan: Tell us what happened.

Monica: Emily -- Emily is addicted to painkillers.

A.J.: What can we do to help?

Edward: Is there anything that she needs that we could --

Alan: Monica, I want to see my daughter.

Monica: Well, you can -- you can in a while, but right now, she -- she just wants to see Zander.

Edward: Oh, my God. If she wanted a shot of heroin, what, you would be preparing the syringe? Is that it?

Monica: Considering what Emilyís going through now, I might just consider it.

Edward: You know what? That's why Emilyís life is in such a shambles -- gross parental incompetence.

Alan: Shut up!

Monica: Is this all you can do, Edward? That's your way of support? Just leave me alone, and you stay away from Emily!

A.J.: Em will get through this. It'll be ok.

Monica: Will she?

Alan: Is it that bad?

Monica: It's that bad.

Carly: I woke up in bed lying next to Ric, and he said that Iíd been all over him and I was begging him to sleep with me. I don't remember it, Sonny. I honestly don't. And I don't believe that I asked for what happened. But Ric said it. He keeps saying it was my fault and --

Sonny: It wasn't your fault. It wasn't your fault. Ric did this, not you.

Carly: Do you believe me?

[door opens]

Sonny: What are you doing here?

Jason: Courtney called. She said something happened.

Sonny: You told Courtney?

Carly: I had to tell someone. I wanted to tell you, Sonny. I --

Sonny: I don't want you to worry anymore. It's over. Listen, I'm glad you told me. Yeah. I got to go talk to Jason for a second, all right?

[Sonny sighs]

Sonny: Over here.

Sonny: What's happening with Faith?

Jason: She's not going anywhere. I've just been waiting for your call. And then Courtney called and said it was important, so I --

Sonny: Do it now.

Jason: What about Ric?

Sonny: Ric is mine.

Zander: Hi.

Emily: Hi.

Zander: I know that Monica was in here telling you that you need to do treatment because the bottom line is, Em, you're sick and you need the support of those that love you.

Emily: All right. I wish she hadn't talked to you about this.

Zander: Well, I love you. So do a whole lot of other people. We're going to be there for you. We will not desert you.

Emily: Uh-uh, ok. I don't want everyone hovering.

Zander: Emily, look, you've stood by me when I trashed my life. If it wasn't for you, I would not be alive today.

Emily: Ok, look, I know you want to be with me through all of this, but I really --

Zander: Emily, I was a dealer, ok? I've seen a lot of people use and I know I can help you kick this.

Emily: Ok, right. I guess so.

Zander: You're strong, Em, incredibly brave. You can do this. We'll do it together. I'll help you get through this thing. All I want to do is help you like you helped me.

Emily: I know. I know.

Zander: We're part of each other, you and me. We always have been ever since we met.

Emily: Yeah.

Zander: I want us to spend the rest of our lives together. I want to love you forever, in sickness and in health, till death do us part. Will you marry me?

Jax: Thank you for a stimulating evening.

Tracy: Oh, it was, wasn't it?

Jax: Will I see you tomorrow?

Tracy: I think that could be arranged. Thanks for dinner.

[Tracy sighs]

[Jax sighs]

Jax: No, no. Now, Iím sure you caught on to the fact that the candlelight and the romance was to get the truth out of Tracy. Now, Iím sorry that I didn't have the chance to warn you -- what is that for?

Skye: You enjoyed playing double-cross way too much.

Faith: Hey, how's Courtney? Is she ok? You know, I know Iíve had my disagreements with that girl, but I can really, really see the appeal. And don't forget, I've done you guys a favor. Remember when you broke up? I arranged for you to meet at that cabin? Well, I -- ok, I was just trying to make you look bad to Sonny, but still, I didn't hurt a hair on her head, not a single hair on that pretty little head of hers, and I could have, so how about a little credit where credit is due? Ok, and I've thought of what else I want for my dinner, you know, along with that caviar -- I know --

[Faith pants]

Faith: I thought maybe, you know, like two bottles of vodka -- that would be really good, like a -- a painkiller? And some caesar salad and maybe a shrimp scampi and a little pasta primavera from The No-Name -- that would be good, right? And for dessert -- for dessert -- hey, how about that roll in the hay, you know? It's really an act of charity on your part. Benny would have called it a mitzvah -- you know, that's basically just your basic good deed. No, no, no!

Courtney: So you told Sonny the whole story?

Carly: Yeah, and he believes me. He doesn't doubt me.

Courtney: Well, Carly, Sonny loves you.

Carly: Sonny's a good man. Courtney, people look at him and they just -- they see a monster. They don't see the man that I know. They don't see the man that I love.

[Sonny sighs]

[Ric groans]

[door opens]

Elizabeth: My God, Ric. What happened? Oh.

[Knock on door]

Taggert: PCPD. Open the door.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Emily: I'm going to love you forever.

Zander: I'll take that as a yes.

Carly: Ric's damage is irreparable.
