"General Hospital" --
Tracy: It's the absolute
truth -- Alan is not Skye's father.
Emily: I don't want
anyone to know that Iím sick.
Sonny: Faith's silent
partner. We finally meet.
Faith: The phone rings,
and I'm dead, right?
Carly: The baby is yours, but I thought it was Ric's. He raped me.
Emily: You really want
to marry me?
Zander: Ok, I know that
you think that Iím probably too sudden and that I'm acting on impulse, but I
swear to you I love you, Emily. And being apart from you, it only proved to me
that Iíll always love you.
Emily: You know what? I
never stopped loving you, either. And I tried, but it didn't work. And I guess
love doesn't end when you wish it would or you think it should. It's stubborn
and it's in my heart, and I can't get it to leave.
Emily: I'm going to love
I'll take that as a yes.
Dr. Meadows: As long as
you keep taking care of yourself, you should have a healthy, full-term baby in
Carly: Hmm. Thank you.
Dr. Meadows: I got to
Courtney: Come on. Let's
get you home and into your own bed. Do you want me to call Sonny?
Carly: No. He's busy.
Courtney: Are you ok?
Yeah, you know? The baby's healthy, I told Sonny the truth about Ric, the
baby's definitely Sonny's, and -- I don't know, I got everything that I
wanted, but I can't shake this feeling that Ricís damage is irrepairable.
Marco: There's no sign
of Ric. There's no way to know how long ago he escaped.
Faith may know where he's running. Unless Jason silenced her already.
Sonny: Is it done?
Jason: It's your call.
Sonny: Don't do it.
Lansing got away. We may need Faith.
You can live if you tell me where Ric Lansing would go to hide.
[knock on door]
Taggert: Ms. Webber?
It's lt. Taggert.
Ric: Get rid of him.
Taggert: If you don't
open the door, I'm going to think something's wrong and break in.
Elizabeth: I'm coming.
Ric, the police are the only ones who can save you from Sonny, ok?
Ric: No, no, no, no, no,
don't -- don't do this.
Elizabeth: I --
I'm here about your boyfriend, Ric?
Emily: This is the most
beautiful -- it's the most romantic thing that has ever happened to me.
Zander: Well, it's just
the beginning. I swear to you, I'm going to love you --
Emily: I -- Zander, I
want you to be clear, ok, on how much I love you so that you understand that
that's not the reason why I can't marry you.
Zander: But you said
Emily: You said yes, ok.
Probably because you knew that that's what I wish I could say, if I could. But I
Zander: Well, yes, you
can. You just say the word.
Emily: Zander, I'm not
ready to be married, ok? Even to you.
Zander: Well, if it's
the drugs, then, you know, we'll wait till after rehab.
Look, it's not the drugs, it's -- Iím not ready to be married, ok? I'm not
ready to think about the future or to try to decide whether we're still going
to want to be together when we're 50. All I want right now is just to be with
you. Just being happy with what we're feeling in the moment, ok? Every moment.
And I know -- I know that you love me. And that's enough for me. Can my love
please be enough for you?
Edward: Hey, hey --
where do you think you're going?
Skye: How's Emily?
Alan: Her system's clear
of drugs for now.
Edward: So, I hope
you're pleased with yourself.
Skye: Well, I'm
concerned about Emily as much as you are.
Edward: Emily nearly
died from an overdose when she was younger. She conquered that all right and has
lived drug-free for the last few years, until you tried to run her out of town
and she wound up with a broken back.
Skye: I know what I did
was wrong, and I regret it, but that was two years ago, and Emily forgave me.
Edward: Mm-hmm. And the
chronic pain that you caused her is why she's back on drugs.
Skye: Is that what you
A.J.: I know you didn't
intend to hurt Emily, but she wouldn't have been on that bus if you hadn't
encouraged her to run away, Skye.
Listen to me. You will be able to make amends some day. But for now, it's best
for Emily if you keep your distance. Ok?
Lieutenant, I'm sorry. When I heard your voice, my first thought was something
bad had happened.
Taggert: You mind?
Elizabeth: No -- no, not
Taggert: So, you -- you
haven't heard from Ric since I saw you at Kellyís, huh?
Elizabeth: No. No, and
this is -- this is a little embarrassing. I'm starting to think this was about
something else altogether, that Ric and I -- yeah, we had a fight and I blew it
out of proportion.
Taggert: Did Ric say
that Sonny threatened him?
Elizabeth: You know
what? The more I think about it, I'm sure Ric is just avoiding my phone calls,
and he probably wants to break up with me and, you know -- and now, I've alerted
the police. I'm really -- I'm just stupid. I'm sorry. I'm sorry, but thank you
for following up.
Taggert: Hey, no
problem. That's my job.
Taggert: You let me know
if you hear from Ric, all right?
Elizabeth: Yeah, I -- I
Ric: Thank you.
Elizabeth: Sit down. So
are you going to tell me what happened?
Ric: I got shot. I think
it just grazed me.
Elizabeth: Oh, my God.
Ok, now, have you thought about what you're going to do? Because other than the
police, I can't think of anyone else who's going to protect you from Sonny.
Then I guess Iím going to have to find a way to protect myself.
Faith: Oh, God. No, no.
Please, please, please.
Sonny: You owe your life
to Lansing. He managed to get away. So you tell me where he's running, you're
free to live.
Faith: That could take a
long time. He's smart, he's got money.
Sonny: Well, my advice
to you would be to talk fast.
Faith: Mexico -- Cancun.
Sonny: Jason, shoot her.
Faith: No! No. No! No,
Sonny: Please, Faith --
my advice to you is -- listen to me. If you lie again, you're a dead woman. If
you stall, you're a dead woman. Either you tell me where Ric went or you're just
going to have to pay for everything you've done.
Faith: We didn't -- we
didn't talk about anything except how to fight you.
Sonny: Not good enough.
Faith: Oh! No, no, no,
Sonny: You got 24 hours
to remember every word Ric Lansing has ever said to you, to think about what
you've done, to save your own life. Marco, stay with her.
Jason: What happened?
Sonny: Paulie's dead.
Now I'm going to give you an order. I don't want you to kill Lansing, you
Jason: Sonny, Ric is
dangerous, and we need to take care of him.
I agree. He needs to be taken out, no matter what it takes, no matter who I
have to deal with. But you're not going to do it. I'm going to kill Ric
Skye: Well, there you
are, right on time, as usual. If punctuality were a trait, you certainly didn't
pass it on to me.
Skye: Come to think of
it, my father is annoyingly on time, too.
Rae: Well, is that what
you felt had to be discussed in person?
Skye: No. No, I'm just
pondering the vagaries of genetic code.
Rae: Ah. Well, if Iím
supposed to guess where you're going with all of this, I give up. Obviously,
you're upset. I heard it in your voice when you called me.
Skye: So you just jumped
on the first flight as soon as you heard --
Rae: Yes, I did. So what
-- what is it? What's going on?
Skye: I guess you didn't
have time to make a hotel reservation or anything. I don't really think there's
going to be room for you at the Quartermaines' because we do have a guest --
aunt Tracy. Yes, it seems she's full of information -- about me, daddy, and how
I came to be.
Rae: Tracy is a
treacherous, self-serving harpy.
Skye: Yeah. Well, so am
I. But that doesn't mean that I don't occasionally tell the truth. And I'm sure
that Tracy does when it suits her.
Rae: What exactly did
she say to you?
Is that Gretel Rae Cornpone? Oh, my goodness gracious. Imagine running into
you after all these years. And standing right next to that trash you tried to
pass off as a Quartermaine.
Zander: I can't force
you to marry me. But you can't force me to take no for an answer, either. So
let's just say my offer's on the table. I love you. And I'll marry you the
second you say you want to.
Edward: Hey -- hey, get
away from my granddaughter and get away from the hospital or I'll have you
Emily: All right,
Grandfather, we've already been through this. Last time, you violated my privacy
by barging in on me at home and now you're --
Alan: Last time, you had
not O.D.'d with Zander's help.
A.J.: You scared us, Em.
Emily: All right, Zander
had nothing to do with what happened.
Edward: He is a plague
on your life.
Emily: Oh, Grandfather!
A.J.: Em's been clean
Emily: I'm not using
again because of Zander.
Alan: Look, it's obvious
that because of Zander -- he put so much pressure on you -- you went to drugs as
Zander: Emily, if I did,
I never meant to.
Emily: No, you didn't.
Edward: Look -- look, if
you are so devoted to her, you can just go away. Come on. Come on.
All right -- as usual, my family is completely wrong. Ok, the only thing that
you did was to give me a reason to come home.
Elizabeth: What went
wrong between you and Sonny?
Ric: I wanted to beat
Sonny. I wanted to be able to look him in the face and call him what he is -- a
lowlife gangster in an over-priced suit.
Elizabeth: Hey, you're
not answering my question. Is this about revenge?
Ric: No, it's about
what's -- what's due to me. I should go. I should go. I never meant to get you
Elizabeth: You -- maybe
you should check your messages. There's one from me saying "I love
you." I didn't even realize it until I thought something had happened to
you. But I love you, Ric. And I'm not going to let Sonny kill you. So just tell
me -- just tell me what I have to do. Tell me how we fight him.
We fight Sonny by using his own weaknesses against him.
Carly: You know, I -- I
-- I should have had you take me to my mom's --
Courtney: Hey -- hey,
Carly, come on. Just sit. Sit. The baby's Sonny's. He knows that you didn't
cheat on him. And you told him everything, so you warned him about Ric. Sonny
knows how to handle Ric. You know, I'm going to call Kellyís and tell them I'm
not going to be able to make it back.
Carly: No, I want to be
Courtney: Are you sure?
I mean, I could stay at least until Sonny gets in.
Carly: No. I'm just
going to run a bath and I'm going to relax. I don't believe anything that Ric
said I did. I don't believe that I was so hot for him that I wouldn't let him
put on a condom.
Courtney: Ric said that?
Carly, he's lying. Ok, listen, after I found out what happened, I went on the
Internet and I looked it up. There are, like, I don't know, like three date-rape
drugs that Fowler could have put in your drink. All three of them are super
strong sedatives that -- they don't get you turned on or turn you into some wild
sex goddess. They make you pass out and you stay passed out.
Carly: So he took me to
that sleazy motel and he laid me out on that bed, and -- and he did God knows
what to me. The whole time, I was passed out, cold. He knew, Courtney, he knew
that if I was conscious, that I would have fought him.
Courtney: Yeah, well,
Ric is a liar and a rapist, Carly. And to make things worse -- I mean, he's
trying to get you to blame yourself. Don't do what he wants you to do.
Carly: I know. I know, I
know, I know, I know -- I should be happy. I should be so, so grateful that I
don't really remember. There's no image in my head of him using me and of -- him
forcing himself on me, but I keep picturing it over and over again.
Oh, God. Come here.
Jason: We will find
Lansing. And when we do, you can finish him.
Sonny: He used her to
get to me.
Jason: Yeah, I know.
Sonny: No, no, you don't
know. The night The Cellar opened, Carly ran off when she saw me kissing Brenda.
Faith sent one of her guys, Fowler, after her. He put something in her drink.
Ric showed up, pretended to rescue her. That's all she remembers.
Sonny: He took her to a
motel, where he raped her.
Jason: Carly -- Carly
told you this today at the hospital?
Sonny: After the amnio.
She wanted to make sure that the baby was mine before she told me that lying
bastard used her. So, what happened was she woke up naked in a motel bed --
Next to him. And he lied, said it was all her fault, that, you know, she was
hanging all over him, and he couldn't -- it was impossible for him to turn her
down. He's been blackmailing her ever since, threatening her to tell me. You
understand what I'm saying? Whew. He's been terrorizing her with the
possibility that the baby is his, but she told me today the baby's mine. She
told me everything. That lying bastard. Oh, man, I -- I listened to him. I let
him hang around. I'll tell you what, though. I'll tell you what. And I'm
serious about this. You ready for this? I'm going to make him pay. Ric Lansing
will beg for death.
Rae: Now, it was my
understanding the Quartermaines completely cut you off. Am I right?
Tracy: You were counting
on that. But I'm back. You know what they say about blood. True Quartermaine
blood. And do you know what I found when I returned to the nest? The baby you
tried to convince everybody was Alanís.
Rae: My God. You really
haven't changed one bit, have you?
Tracy: You have. You
have -- look at you. Nary a trace of the trailer trash you used to be -- except,
of course, if you count Skye, who is the unfortunate result of your liaison with
a -- a garbage man? A truck driver?
Come on, Mom. Please -- now, this is the part where you're supposed to blow
her out of the water and tell her that there's only one man in this whole
world who could be my father. And you tell her -- you tell her the whole
heartbreaking story of how you and Alan fell madly in love in college and how
you wound up pregnant and how cruel-hearted Edward had to tear you apart. Now
please, Mom. Please, just this once, come through for me, ok? Tell her Alan
Quartermaine is my father.
Emily: Zander didn't get
me drugs. The minute he caught me, he blew up. He begged me to tell you. He came
up with a plan to get me into rehab.
Alan: You should have
Emily: He told mom when
I was in the hospital because he loves me and he knew that if I was doing drugs,
keeping it a secret wouldn't help. Zander loves me. And I love him. And I expect
you to respect that. I expect you to respect Zander. Now, I would like all of
you to apologize to him.
Edward: I will do no
Emily: Grandfather, you
were wrong, and you know it.
A.J.: I jumped to the
wrong conclusion. I'm sorry.
Alan: I'm sorry, too.
Edward: I apologize.
Emily: For what?
Edward: For accusing you
of -- of putting her on drugs.
Emily: Mm-hmm, and for
calling Zander --
Edward: He is a deviant,
he has always been a deviant, and the rotten apple doesn't fall from --
A.J.: Why don't you quit
while you're ahead?
Monica: Patients are
allowed two visitors at a time. And there is a reason for that. Too many will
tire her out, and that's the last thing Emily needs, so would you please say
your good nights and go? That means you, too, Zander.
A.J.: You're not going
to go through this alone. We love you, all right?
Edward: You know I love
Edward: How much?
Emily: A lot.
Edward: More than words
can ever describe. I'll see you in the morning.
Zander: I love you.
Emily: I love you, too.
Zander: I'm going to be
with you every step of the way, ok? No matter how hard it gets. Come here. No
matter how tough it gets. We'll do this together, ok? And I meant every word
that I said earlier, too.
Monica: Ok, ok, you can
see her in the morning. Please.
Zander: Ok. See you.
Monica: You, too. Come
Not a chance. I know exactly what she's going through. And I'm going to help
her get through this.
Jason: Elizabeth, if
you're in there, you need to open the door, or Iím going to find another way
to open it.
Elizabeth: All right.
I'm coming. But you can't come in. Oh.
Jason: Is Ric here?
Elizabeth: No. And you
know what? If you don't leave, I'm going to call the police.
Jason: No, you're not.
You're not going to call the cops, you're going to tell me where Ric is.
Elizabeth: He hasn't
Jason: Where is he?
Elizabeth: Unless you
plan to tie me up and gag me, I'm just going to have to call the police.
Do you realize you're protecting a rapist?
Carly: Hey. I'm not
Sonny: How are you
Carly: I'm fine. I took
Sonny: Sorry -- I didn't
make it in time to pick you up at the -- at the hospital.
Carly: It's ok. Courtney
was with me.
Sonny: Good. Yeah. Ok,
Carly, go back to sleep.
Carly: Where are you
Sonny: Uh -- I'm going
to go downstairs.
Carly: Are you going to
sleep down there?
Sonny: Hey, you want me
Carly: I want you to be
honest with me. When you look at me, do you see Ric?
Sonny: I don't want to
think about what that bastard did to you.
Carly: You're thinking
about it right now.
Sonny: It's not your
fault. I don't blame you.
But it doesn't change what happened. Ric raped me, and now you don't -- you
don't want anything to do with me.
Rae: Is there a reason
why you devoted your entire existence just spewing poison like you did?
Tracy: Oh, now let me
see. Didn't I read somewhere that you were a -- a radio advice guru? And isn't
that supposed to make you an advocate for the truth? Oh -- silly me, I forgot,
you're not really a therapist after all. Just another one of your fairy tales.
Skye: Come on, Mom. Just
answer the question. Yes or no, is Alan Quartermaine my father?
Tracy: This is my
account number at bank Suisse.
Tracy: I expect the 5
million to be deposited by end of business day on Friday. It has been a pleasure
doing business with you both. Ahem -- tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk.
Skye: I would rather
starve than have you hold anything over my head, do you hear me? You go to
grand-- you go to Edward, you go to Alan, you go to every television station and
newspaper in this country if you think they care. You won't get a dime from me.
Do you hear me?
Tracy: You know who you
sound like? You sound like her the night I told her to take her grubby little
hands off the Quartermaine money and leave town, before I exposed her. She said
exactly that. She said she'd never give in. She did. You will, too. Bye-bye.
Rae: I wanted you to
have a family, and a -- a father that you could be proud of.
I'm not interested in your good intentions, Mother. Family that I have come to
know and love is no longer mine. I thought I was a Chandler. And now I'm not
even a Quartermaine. I've lost them. Well, the truth is I never even had a
mother in the first place.
Alan: You watched me
fight my own battle with drugs, and you were the only one who stood by me. And I
failed you, along with everybody else. This is not your fault. I'm the one who
set the example, and you just walked in my footsteps.
Emily: No, Dad, you're
wrong, ok? You set a great example because you got clean and you stayed that
Alan: I'm talking about
as a father.
Emily: No -- look, I'm
not using drugs because of you -- or Zander or my back injury. It was stupid and
I let it get out of control, and now that Iím home, I'm going to be ok. Ok?
Alan: I will love you no
matter what. You need to let me help you get through this.
I love you, and that helps me every day.
Jason: Raping Carly fit
in with some plan of Ricís, and so does dating you. This guy's sick. He's
going to do everything he can to take Sonny down. You have to tell me what you
Elizabeth: You know, you
are so desperate, you think that if you tell me that Ric raped somebody, I'm
going to turn on him and help you find him?
Jason: This guy is lying
Elizabeth: No, no!
Jason: Yes. He's sick
and he's using you.
Elizabeth: You know
what? You're the one who's sick, Jason. You'll use anything, including my own
rape, so you can find Ric and kill him. You know what? I have to get back to
work, so either you leave, or I'm calling the police.
Hey. Put a 24-hour tail on Elizabeth Webber. She's helping Ric, and sooner or
later, she's going to lead him to us.
Sonny: You know me. I'm
jealous and possessive. And I love you. And I know it may be wrong, but I think
of you as mine. So when I think about what that filth did to you -- you
understand what I'm saying?
Carly: You think I'm
Sonny: No, I don't think
you're dirty. Not at all.
Carly: I was so worried
about the baby.
Carly: I wanted it to be
yours. And I wanted you to love your child, and I wanted you safe from Ric. I
never stopped to think that if I told you the truth, it would change how you
looked at me.
Sonny: Don't do that.
Don't do that to yourself. Don't take Ricís evil -- on yourself. I saw my
mother getting beaten. I saw how it took away who she was, took away her
laughter, her courage. It destroyed who she was on the inside and out. Carly,
you are stronger than that. You put up with Lansing for months. He tried to
blackmail you. You fought him. You told the truth when it came time to protect
me and your family. That's what I see when I look at you. A strong woman who
will fight for her children, for me, for yourself. You're not dirty, honey. You
are -- you're beautiful. Hey. Listen to me. All right. Come on. You're my whole
world, sweetheart. Ok?
Sonny: You all right?
Come here. It's ok.
Ric: It's me.
Elizabeth: Hi, Linda.
Did you get all my messages?
Ric: You're not alone?
Elizabeth: Actually, I'm
at work right now. Do you think you can call me later?
Ric: Um -- no, it's ok.
I just wanted to let you know I made it to my car. I'll call you back with more
instructions if you're still willing to help.
Elizabeth: Yeah, no
problem. I'll -- I'll do whatever I can.
Ric: Elizabeth, thank
Carly: Sonny -- ahem.
Sonny, come back to bed.
Sonny: I'm waiting for
word on Ric.
Sonny: We had him, but
he got away. But I don't want you to worry, you know.
Carly: I wonít.
Sonny: He can't get to
you or Michael.
Carly: I know.
Sonny: And he will pay.
Carly: I understand.
Sonny: Do you
Do you understand that what he did to you, how he violated you was about me?
He hates me. He blames me for something. I don't know what it is. But I'm
going to find out.
>> On the next
"General Hospital" --
Skye: Your startling
news is the reason that we're all here today. So go on, Tracy, tell them what
Ric: I'm counting on
Elizabeth: Happy to do
Sonny: What now?
Jason: Elizabeth could
be on her way to meet Ric. I'm going after her.
Ric: I can't tell you
how glad I am you decided to drop by.
