>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Elizabeth: What about Zander?

Emily: I won't drag him through this.

Elizabeth: Emily, he needs to know.

Nikolas: Luke didn't leave a map. He may know where the money is, but I donít.

Maxie: I got the X from Zach Rhodes.

Zach: I can't think of his name.

Kyle: Angry John.

Jason: Where did John get the ecstasy?

Zach: Miami.

Jason: The drugs were a message. They will be another message.

[explosion]

Ric: Will you marry me?

Elizabeth: Yes, I will marry you.

Lucky: What was that for?

Summer: Do I need a reason?

Lucky: Well, it's a change in mood from when we first checked in.

Summer: Well, I was exhausted when we first checked in. I'm not exhausted anymore.

Nikolas: Sorry to interrupt, but my family's money is waiting.

Emily: I want the picnic to be casual, but romantic.

Alexis: [British accent] Very good. What sort of food does your young man prefer?

Emily: Whatever's in front of him. Zander's not a very picky eater.

Alexis: Then may I suggest something simple yet elegant. Perhaps some French bread, Brie, strawberries, chocolate? And a lovely bottle of wine with a corkscrew. Men love to open the bottle.

Emily: You're good at this.

Alexis: I do my best, Miss.

[door opens]

Monica: Excuse me. Emily, could I see you a minute?

Emily: All right, coming. If you could get everything ready, that would be great, Dobson.

Alexis: Very good.

Emily: Ok.

Skye: Dobson.

Alexis: You summoned, Madam?

Skye: I was listening to your ideas about Emilyís picnic. I'd like for you to expand on them for me.

Alexis: You're having a picnic?

Skye: Actually, a romantic dinner might be more effective.

Alexis: Will Mr. Jacks be joining you?

Skye: No, but Mr. Ashton will.

Monica: You made the right decision, you know.

Emily: I hope so. Zander and I are having a picnic at the boathouse. And at the end of the day, I'm going to tell him that I have cancer. Hey.

Ric: Ok, watch your step. Just follow me. I want you to come over here. Sit down, ok? Because I plan on spoiling you rotten --

Elizabeth: Hmm.

Ric: Starting with breakfast, ok?

Elizabeth: Ok. Well, let me help you --

Ric: No, no, no, no, no. I want you to stay right here. Listen -- think of me as your servant.

Elizabeth: Ok. I think I'm liking this more and more.

Ric: So am I.

Elizabeth: Ok, hurry back.

Ric: All right, I will.

Ric: Elizabeth? Oh, there you are. Here we go.

Elizabeth: What have you done?

Sonny: I don't care. I don't care if Faith and her people were accounted for. She could have hired a contractor from out of town.

Jason: I don't -- Sonny, I don't think so. We check her bank account. She doesn't have the kind of money for that.

Sonny: Don't waste your time on Faith. We got to find who did this.

Jason: Ok, look, I'm going to check some new sources, see if anyone in town has been showing any interest in you.

Sonny: Ok, this could -- you know, this could be, you know, connected to the drugs that were run through --

Jason: Right, yes.

Sonny: Do you understand what Iím saying?

Jason: Yes, I know.

Carly: Ok, so we will take you there -- out as soon as we get there, because the waves will be perfect for boogie-boarding, ok?

Michael: Ok.

Sonny: You guys all packed up?

Carly: Yep, we are. I was just telling Michael how much fun we're going to have on the island.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I wish I could come.

Carly: Well, maybe you can -- you know, after you've finished your business here.

Sonny: Right.

Michael: Can you, Daddy?

Sonny: We'll see. But in the meantime, I'm sending Jason to make sure that everything's, you know, everything's fine.

Jason: Sonny? You canít.

Sonny: I need you to make sure they make it to the airport and to the island.

Michael: Something bad's going to happen to daddy?

Carly: No, sweetheart. Daddy's going to be here with Marco and Max --

Jason: Sonny, like you said, there could be a connection between the bombing and the drugs at Carly's.

Sonny: Right.

Jason: Ok? So now, if you retaliate against Ric for this and you're wrong, you're going to leave yourself wide open for the person who really did this.

Sonny: I know. I'm not like I was a month ago. I'm thinking clearly. I'm fine.

Jason: I know, but you know you shouldn't get personally involved.

Sonny: The only --

Jason: Let Max --

Sonny: The only way I can handle this is if I know my family's safe. The only way I know my family is safe is if you're with them. Do not fight me on this.

Jason: Ok. It's ok.

Sonny: All right. All right. Ah. You going to take care of your mama?

Michael: Ok, Daddy.

Sonny: Ok. I know it scared you, right? It scared you a lot. But you know what? Sometimes things happen. You can't control what happens. But one thing I do know is you're going to be safe on that island. You're going to have a good time. You're going to be -- everything's going to be great, and I promise you the people who did this bad thing -- they're never going to hurt anybody again.

Michael: Be careful, Daddy.

Sonny: I will, ok? Give me a hug now. All right.

Courtney: Hey, kid, you going to teach me how to boogie-board?

Michael: Yep.

Courtney: Yep? I've always wanted to learn. Now I have to take a chance.

Michael: Yep.

Courtney: Yeah. You ready?

Michael: Yep.

Carly: I'd rather be here with you. You know that, right?

Sonny: Yeah. It's not going to be -- it's not going to be for very long.

Carly: I'll be thinking of you every minute.

Sonny: Go.

Carly: Let's go, let's go.

Courtney: Ready?

Carly: Yeah.

Courtney: You got it?

Michael: Yep.

Courtney: All right.

Carly: I love you.

Ric: Sonny's going to come after me.

Elizabeth: I guess you didn't expect him to come out of this alive.

Ric: What? I mean, you think I did this?

Elizabeth: You just said Sonny's going to come after you.

Ric: No, because -- because of everything that Iíve done to hurt him in the past. Look, revenge against Sonny used to be part of my life. Elizabeth, that was before I fell in love with you, before the baby.

Elizabeth: There you go again -- the perfect words for every occasion.

Ric: Elizabeth, you have every reason in the world to wonder if Iím telling you the truth. But the one thing that I have never lied to you about is how much I love you. All right? How much -- what we have now, we're going to have in the future. That's very precious to me. And I'm not willing to risk losing that.

Elizabeth: I know you've always been honest about your feelings for me.

Ric: Please believe me.

Elizabeth: I do.

Ric: Ok. I love you and this baby, and I want to give you both a good life. Just give me the chance to show you how much I love you and I always will. Ahem. Look at that. What is it?

[Elizabeth giggles]

Ric: I -- I want to marry you, and I want to do it today.

Summer: Well, I'm going to go take a shower. Don't start the treasure hunt without me.

Lucky: So what's the plan?

[water runs]

Nikolas: These are the old blueprints from Dolena.

Lucky: The what?

Nikolas: Dolena -- it means the fields. That's the name of the house.

Lucky: What, your family name all their houses?

Nikolas: They used to. I don't even know if it's there anymore. But assuming it is -- right here -- assuming it is, there are several access points, and I think our best bet is probably here in the side basement.

Lucky: No, you know what? Why don't we just wait till Summer comes out, because I don't want you to have to go through all this again.

Nikolas: The less Summer knows about this, the better, all right?

Lucky: You know what? Summer is in on this, Nikolas. Whether you like it or not, she's a part of the team.

Nikolas: I don't trust her.

Lucky: Look, you were the one who bullied her into going after my father. What, now she's the one that can't be trusted?

Nikolas: No, she's had her own agenda the whole time.

Lucky: Well, so have you.

Nikolas: She's been after the money since day one, Lucky, ready to do anything and everything it takes to get it.

Lucky: Is that what ticks you off? That she refuses to give up?

Nikolas: Lucky, Lucky, open your eyes, will you? The lies about Summer's long-lost brother Matt, who turned out to be her partner and lover? You're Matt's replacement.

Lucky: So what if I am?

Nikolas: What -- Matt got a knife in his back!

Lucky: Summer is not the one who threw it. I'm her alibi. She was with me the whole time.

Nikolas: Listen, listen, all Summer cares about is getting her hands on my money. That's it. All right, she knows we're in here talking about the plan. She's going to be working you.

Lucky: I won't tell her, ok? It's your lost fortune. We'll search for it however you want.

Nikolas: Thank you. Now, you're the expert at breaking and entering, all right? See if you can find the best way in. I'm going to go rent a car.

[door closes]

[water stops running]

Summer: Nikolas left?

Lucky: Yeah. He -- he went to go rent a car.

Summer: Well, in that case Ė

Emily: Hey, help me with this.

Zander: Yeah, sure.

Emily: Ah. You know, you can speak now, by the way.

Zander: What?

Emily: Well, you've barely said a word since we left the house.

Zander: Well, I -- I don't know, Em. I just -- you know, I mean, you -- you said you never wanted to see me again. And now we're here on this picnic because you wanted to spend, you know, a perfect day together. I mean, I'm not complaining about that.

Emily: I know a lot has been going on since I got back, like reconnecting with my family and starting the rehab program. I know Iíve been all over the place.

Zander: And it's ok. I don't mind you taking it out on me.

Emily: You're a wonderful person. You know that?

Zander: You're the first one who thought so.

Emily: Well, you are. And to show you my appreciation, I have arranged this romantic afternoon just for the two of us, beginning with a picnic. Think you can get in the mood?

Zander: As long as you promise me one thing.

Emily: Mm-hmm?

Zander: That we will do this every year from now on -- one perfect afternoon just for ourselves. Just me and you until we're old and gray to celebrate 20 years, 40 years, 60 years.

Emily: That's a nice fantasy, Zander.

Zander: No, we'll make it real. Come on, let's go swimming. Before we eat. Come on.

Emily: I don't know, I don't know.

Zander: Come on!

Emily: The water's freezing.

Zander: Come on, come on. Come on.

Emily: Zander -- no, wait, I canít. I'm Ė

Elizabeth: You want to elope? Right now?

Ric: Yeah. Why wait?

Elizabeth: Well, because I had something more traditional in mind. You know, like a minister, a wedding dress, family, friends --

Ric: No, no, and I'm going to give you that, everything, I'll give you all of that after the baby's born, but I just feel like Iíve wasted so much time already.

Elizabeth: Why hurry? The baby and I aren't going anywhere.

Ric: Because I feel like I -- my life is divided into two parts -- the part that existed before I met you, and everything that I'm going to share with you from now on. I want to go to bed as your husband and I want to wake up next to the woman who changed everything for me.

Elizabeth: And I want that, too.

Ric: I love you so much.

Elizabeth: Mmm, and I love you. You say that I changed your life? Well, you've changed mine just as much.

Ric: Really?

Elizabeth: You know, I almost got married once before. And when that didn't work out, I thought I could never trust any man enough to want to make that commitment again.

Ric: Well, I'm going to do everything in my power to convince you that you made the right decision.

Elizabeth: I want to marry you. And if you want to do it today, then we will.

Ric: Well, then let's go to the justice of the peace right now.

Elizabeth: Oh -- well, this isn't exactly how I want to appear in our family photo album, so --

Ric: What? I think you look great.

[Elizabeth laughs]

Ric: Ok, so --

Elizabeth: Let me go home, change, pack, and Iíll come back.

Ric: All right. Happy wedding day.

Elizabeth: I can't wait.

Sonny: I want him picked up and brought here.

[knock on door]

Sonny: I'm busy!

Marco: D.A. Baldwin to see you.

Scott: How well did you know the driver that was killed?

Sonny: I just hired him. Why?

Scott: Well, he had $300,000 in cash in a suitcase.

Sonny: Well, a lot of good it did him.

Scott: Somebody paid him a lot of money to take you out, but something went wrong, or he was expendable. But he's the link to who's ever trying to put you and your family six feet under. So that gives us a starting point.

Sonny: "Us"?

Scott: Wise up, Corinthos, you're going to have to work with us. Otherwise, you're going to end up like all gangsters -- just a stain on the pavement. Now, this guy flew in under your radar. Your enemy is using your own employees to get to you. Were you just distracted by your brother? Are you getting stupid in your old age?

Sonny: Door's right there, Scotty.

Scott: You think that you're invincible. Well, you're not. You do this on your own and you're going to get your whole family killed, stupid.

Summer: Hey.

Nikolas: Heading out?

Summer: Yeah. I was just going to go get some food.

Nikolas: Well, we can all go together in a little while.

Summer: No, I thought that you guys were going to try to figure out a way to get into the Cassadine palace, so -- I mean, you guys stay here, work on a plan, I'll go get food. Saves everybody time.

Lucky: Where's Summer?

Nikolas: She went out for a snack, if you can believe that.

Lucky: Well, even untrustworthy ex-call girls get to eat.

Nikolas: Yeah, well, we can't wait for her. I got the car, went by the house. It's run down, but it's still there.

Lucky: Well, you know what? I've been thinking about those access points, and, you know -- The plans are gone. Summer.

Nikolas: Why do you look so surprised?

Emily: Ok. You can come in now.

Zander: Wow.

Emily: Yeah. It's the first place where we made love.

Zander: Oh, I remember. I'll never forget. You were so beautiful in your prom dress, your smile. It was like magic, like Iíll never forget.

[music plays]

Emily: Oh. This is my special day. Let me show you what I want.

Carly: Enrique, hi. Yeah, can you please call the landing strip and tell them to hold the plane. Mr. Morgan's going to be going back to the mainland. And he should be ready in about --

Jason: Yeah --

Carly: Ah --

Jason: I should be ready. Enrique, forget that. Tell the pilot to go and I'll call him if I need him. Thanks. Don't ever give an order about me behind my back.

Carly: I was not giving an order about you, Jason. I am making a request. Will you please go back and take care of Sonny?

Jason: Right now my job is to be here to keep you safe.

Carly: I'm fine! Sonny is not, ok? Will you just -- whoever tried to kill him could do it again. Go back to him now!

Jason: Sonny trusted me with his family. He asked me to look after you. That's what I'm going to do!

Courtney: Didn't you say that the best way to help Sonny was to do what he asked, Carly?

Carly: Fine. It's fine, Jason. You don't want to go back and help, I will take care of it myself.

Jason: No, no, Carly, you're not going anywhere.

Carly: I will go --

Jason: You're staying right here. If I have to lock you in your room, I will. And when Michael asks why Iím treating his mom like a prisoner, I'm going to have to tell him it's to keep you safe. Stop making things worse like you always do.

Carly: Oh, that's really nice, Jason. You know, you've never failed me in my life, and now you're 100% completely and totally failing me!

Scott: You going to tell me who's trying to kill you, or you just going to wait until he succeeds?

Sonny: You know more than I do. You're the one with the preliminary report.

Scott: But I bet you know a lot more.

Sonny: Not at the moment.

Scott: You've been top dog in this town for sometime. No one's been able to touch you. But last night someone came awfully close, didn't they?

Sonny: I can see that really distresses you.

Scott: What are you going to do? How do you think you're going to handle this? What, are you just going to retaliate? What if you go after the wrong guy? What if there's other people out there? What if you start a turf war and you get in the middle of it?

Sonny: What if I walk across the street and I get struck by lightning?

Scott: You know what?

Sonny: Then what?

Scott: You think you're invincible, but you're not. And one day you will come running to the cops, and we'll say, "thanks, but, no, thanks." Bad things are going to happen to you and yours, and you know what? I'm not going to shed a tear.

Ric: Oh, great.

Man: Here's the bridal bouquet you ordered, Sir.

Ric: Thank you so much for getting it to me on such short notice.

Man: Yeah, congratulations.

Ric: Thank you. Take care. Let's see how this turned out. Oh, that's beautiful. Let me guess. Sonny wants to see me, right?

Max: Let's go.

Ric: Ok, look, Max, will lay off, all right? I'm going! I -- guys, watch the suit, will you?

Nikolas: Let me take a wild guess. Summer just walked out of the shower and --

[Nikolas whistles]

Nikolas: Right into your arms, right?

Lucky: Look, man, I didn't tell her a thing.

Nikolas: Well, then how did she find out?

Lucky: Look, I hid the blueprints. She must have searched the place while I was taking a shower.

Nikolas: Well, you obviously didn't hide them very well, did you?

Lucky: Ok, you're right. You know, I should have realized that Summer would have searched the place. You know what? But also, she must have known that you were going to cut her out of her share.

Nikolas: Share? What share? It's my family's money, and she's trying to use you to get it, and you know what? It's working.

Lucky: Oh, would you just listen to yourself? You were determined to cut her out of this whole thing, all right?

Nikolas: Oh, I see, I see. So Summer, who just double-crossed you again, is just some misunderstood innocent. Is that right?

Lucky: You know what? I'm real clear on what Summer is and what she isn't. She went behind my back to steal the plans, but at the moment, I'm -- you know what? I trust her about as much as I trust you.

Summer: Excuse me. Hi. I'm visiting from the states, and my guidebook said that there's a former palace near here, that the original owners were the Cassadines?

Waiter: This is the place.

Soldier: You! You are mine.

Summer: What? Whoa! Hey, no, no, put me down! No, no, put me down! Put me down! Hey, put me down!

Woman: Welcome to Dolena! From now on, you work for me.

[Woman laughs]

Summer: Oh, no, no! I am an American citizen! No, no, I don't work for this lady! Mister, put me down! I'll pay you money --

[woman laughs]

Summer: Let me go!

Emily: This has been the best day.

Zander: Our lives are going to be filled with these days.

Emily: You know, I've been thinking about our life together.

Zander: Me, too. After my brother died, I -- I thought that any perfect days died with him. I was running from the past, finding bigger and better ways to screw up. Then I met you. Something inside me came alive again.

Emily: Yeah. Sometimes the best things don't last.

Zander: That's why Iím glad I met you. When I was a little kid, I used to dream of all the places Iíd go when I was older -- the big Tetons and Alaska,  northern lights. But I never pictured doing it by myself. I always had this image of someone along my side sharing it with me. Now that I have you, that dream is going to become a reality, all those places we will go, all the time that we have left. When we got here, you said I was too quiet. Now you can't get me to shut up.

Emily: Oh, no. I like listening.

Zander: You sounded like you had something to say.

Emily: It's -- it's about what I've been going through.

Zander: Rehab?

Emily: It's -- it's harder than I thought it would be.

Zander: Hey, Em?

Emily: Yeah?

Zander: I'm in your corner. I'm going to help you get through this. We'll do it together. I promise.

Ric: Max, all right, we're here! Will you --

Sonny: Max, close the door. Stay inside.

Ric: Ok, Sonny, look, I read the paper this morning. I know what you must be thinking.

Sonny: Shut up, Ric.

Ric: I had nothing to do with it.

Sonny: You wanted a truce. You swore on your unborn child you weren't going to be the one to break it.

Ric: Yes, and I meant every word.

Sonny: No, every word that comes out of your mouth is a lie. I'm tired of this garbage about peace and good intentions. You want me dead.

Ric: Look, Sonny, I have a child on the way. There's no way in the world I would want to provoke you.

Sonny: I wasn't supposed to be around to retaliate!

Ric: Elizabeth and I are about to get married! For the first time in my life, I have a future to look forward to! Why would I --

Sonny: You wanted me out of the way so that way I wouldn't threaten your family the way you threatened mine.

Ric: Sonny, please, I swear to you on our mother --

Sonny: Forget our mother! I'm tired of you talking about our mother! I don't care anymore that you're her son! I'm tired of playing games with you. It ends!

[door opens]

Ned: Good evening, Dobson.

Alexis: Good evening, Sir.

Ned: Skye called and invited me for dinner.

Alexis: Ms. Quartermaine is in the living room, Sir.

Ned: Thank you.

Skye: Uh -- wrong way, Ned. I'm just about to put Kristina down. Would you like to join us?

Ned: Of course. Dobson, give us enough time for "Good Night, Moon" and a lullaby, and then we'll be ready for dinner.

Zander: That was nice.

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Zander: Want me to stay here a while?

Emily: There's always someone in the house who's furious about something, and our day's been too perfect to spoil it with a family fight.

Zander: Ok. We'll end it here.

Emily: Hmm. Ok.

Zander: Anything else you want to tell me?

Emily: Why do you ask?

Zander: I don't know. I just -- I get the feeling that there's something else on your mind.

Emily: Only this.

Zander: Ok. I can handle that. Good night.

Emily: Good night.

Zander: Bye.

Emily: It's Emily. I'm in huge trouble. Call me as soon as you get this.

Lucky: Ok, so what if Summer stole the plans to the palace? I mean, she's just beating you at your own game.

Nikolas: All right, fine. Then take the next plane home.

Lucky: No. Not while my dad's still in the middle of this.

Nikolas: Oh, Lukeís always been able to take of himself. He's fine.

Lucky: Well, he's not exactly, say, rational when it comes to Cassadines. If Iím not around to step in, it could get dangerous.

Nikolas: I'm not trying to cause trouble for Luke.

Lucky: I'm thinking about more of what he might do to you.

Nikolas: He's still fighting my father in his head, and that's in the past. I don't want anything to do with it anymore.

Lucky: Ok, fine! Then why are you here?

Nikolas: All I want is what belongs to me, nothing more -- no revenge, no temporary victory in this ridiculous Spencer-Cassadine war. All right, you and I agreed that the war was over. We were the ones who were supposed to turn it around, Lucky. We said that we were going to be brothers instead of enemies. That's why Iím putting up with Summer and the only reason why I even considered bringing Luke along. We trusted each other once, and we lost that trust. I don't know about you, but I want my brother back.

Summer: Agh! Would you stop tossing me around like a rag doll?

Soldier: Rag doll?

Summer: Look, I don't belong here, and I certainly don't belong to you.

Soldier: You are mine!

Summer: Oh! Forget what the Madam said, ok? I've never met the woman before in my life! Look, I'm a tourist. I am a tourist, not a hooker, ok? I have a husband and six children in Des Moines, Iowa, and they're going to be very upset when they find out that I was in a bordello with you.

Soldier: Nyet!

Summer: No! I got to go! I have to go! I got --

Luke: [Russian accent] what is tourist from Des Moines doing in place like this?

[Summer and Luke laugh]

Courtney: Are you ok?

Jason: Yeah. I just had to get away from Carly for a while.

Courtney: Oh, she's concerned about Sonny, and I know you are, too.

Jason: Yeah, if having me guard all of you gives him the peace of mind he needs to deal with things right now, I got to respect that.

Courtney: I know.

Jason: You know, when we were in the crash in the snowstorm, I promised that I'd bring you to a place like this. I mean, this island was one of the places I wanted to take you, but not like this.

Courtney: We have years ahead of us. We'll come back.

Jason: Yes, we will.

Courtney: In the meantime, the beach is beautiful. The breeze is warm. For what it's worth, I'm happy to be here with you.

Michael: Why were you yelling at Jason?

Carly: Come here. Because Jason is mommy's oldest and dearest friend, and sometimes I get impatient and I say things that I don't mean.

Michael: But why were you fighting? Are the bad guys going to hurt daddy?

Carly: No, sweetie, daddy's just fine. He's strong and he's brave and he is at home and he is -- he's fixing things. And we want to help him, right?

Michael: Yeah.

Carly: Yeah. That's why we're here on the island where it's nice and safe.

Elizabeth: Ric?

Ric: Sonny, there was a time when I would have wanted you to kill me. Knowing -- knowing that you were responsible for killing your own brother and you had to live with that? That would have been my revenge. I'm trying to start my own family. I'm begging you, don't do this. I'm innocent.

Sonny: You're still lying.

[Phone rings]

Sonny: Yeah?

Man: The limo explosion was proof we can get to you anytime, Corinthos.

Sonny: Who is this?

Man: We'll be contacting you soon to open negotiations.

Sonny: Listen, you come to me. You stay away from my family, you hear me? You hear me?

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Luke: You're actually falling in love with my son.

Faith: If you think Ric's going to show up, you're in for a big disappointment.

Sonny: Tell me who's coming after me and how they plan to strike.

Carly: Sweetie, we're all safe, ok?

[Skye coughs]

Ned: Have some water. Drink slowly.

Alexis: Allow me, Madam.
