>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Dr. Pinter: I had heard that Laura had a visitor. Stefan Cassadine.

Carly: You know that mobile that I showed you this morning? Did we leave it at Kellyís?

Ric: Our baby very soon.

Nikolas: You can't keep this a secret forever. The guy deserves to know.

Janine: Jason's the groom? At least tell me he's rich.

Sonny: No drugs in my territory.

Man: I'll convey your message.

A.J.: Look around. Huh? Nice place to live, right?

Janine: What, are you kidding me? It's the lap of luxury. Hot- and cold-running servants. What's not to love?

A.J.: Exactly. And my brother threw all this away -- the Quartermaine name, money, power, perks, all of it. And for what? To work for some crime lord and be his lackey? I mean, is this the kind of guy you want to marry your daughter?

Janine: Well, before you get too full of yourself, A.J. let me remind you that Courtney would still be living here if you hadn't tried to use her as leverage over Sonny.

A.J.: I'm not saying I didn't make terrible mistakes and blow everything. But I love Courtney. Part of me always will. But this is from my heart. I know my brother better than you. He's a killer, ok? A remorseless, brain-damaged thug. And I want you to use all the influence you have over your daughter to stop her from throwing her life away on my brother.

Janine: I don't know. Courtney can be awfully stubborn when she gets her mind set on something.

A.J.: She's just blinded by her attraction to Jason. But you could get her to see that -- you know, possibly see things from a different point of view. "Mommy knows best" sort of thing?

Janine: I could probably come at her with a little more conviction if I weren't so low on funds.

A.J.: I knew you'd say that. Excuse me. Ahem. Will this do for starters?

Janine: Whoa. Whatever idiot said money can't buy happiness?

A.J.: For fortification.

Janine: Hmm. You think of everything.

A.J.: It's a gift. So I will hear from you soon?

Janine: This entitles you to the best I've got.

A.J.: Bye-bye.

Skye: Shame, shame, shame on you.

A.J.: Ahem. How long you been there?

Skye: Well, long enough to decide I'm not going to let you booby-trap Courtneyís path to true love.

Emily's voice: "The first round of chemo wasn't so terrible. But I know from what happened to my mom it's going to get a lot worse. I don't want to put Zander through that hell. That's why I have to push him away before --"

[knock on door]

Emily: Don't tell me -- you're trying to avoid grandfather again.

Zander: No. Actually, it's Dobson.

Emily: Dobson? Why?

Zander: It's a long story. Believe me, you don't want to know.

Emily: Oh, all right. Now I'm really curious.

Zander: Forget Dobson. You know what? I've got something a lot more interesting. How about you go with me and spend the day with me on the lake. I'll show you that I can sail.

Emily: You know, I would really love to, but I canít.

Nikolas: Be honest. How bad is it?

Alexis: I know that I promised you that I would consult on this financial crisis, but I am having a hell of a time getting my head in this.

Nikolas: I'm sorry. I shouldn't be dragging you into this. It's not like you don't have problems of your own.

Alexis: Nikolas, I know that you're in charge of the family now, but why don't you call Stefan and ask him to consult. I'm sure he'd be happy to help if you call him.

Nikolas: I have called him repeatedly and left him dozens of messages, and he never calls back. I'm starting to get worried.

Luke: Nice day for it.

Lucky: What now?

Luke: You've been played for a sucker, my boy. All this time while you were defending Nikolas, every move he made, he was busy clearing the way for Stefan.

Courtney: I feel really bad, Carly, I mean, not to mention mortified.

Carly: Don't be ridiculous.

Courtney: Well, you went to so much trouble to throw me such a beautiful shower, and what happens? My past turns up and ruins it.

Carly: As far as showers go, I've been to worse. Some of them have been my own. But if you really want to make it up to me and you feel that badly, then --

Courtney: Absolutely. Anything.

Carly: Help me find that baby mobile that I lost here yesterday.

Ric: Glad you wanted a fireplace. Just before thanksgiving, you'll be rocking our baby right in front of the fire.

Sonny: You better hope Carly doesn't find out you paid off her fancy tux guy to go away.

Jason: It was either that or elope. Who made up these wedding rules, anyway?

Sonny: That would be Emily Post, I think.

Jason: Well, you know what? I don't even want to know about her. She's doing all the stuff I hate.

Sonny: You got to hang in there, Jason. You know why?

[Jason sighs]

Sonny: It's all going to be worth it in the end. I mean, I know. I'm a marriage expert -- three times to the same lady. And I'd do it again in a second just to see the look in Carly's eyes. Women love getting married. You'll see. Miami -- they're going to be sending another message.

Jason: Wait, we'll -- we'll talk about that when we're finished.

Man: Da la vuelta, por favor.

Sonny: Yes.

Man: Mantiene tu brazo derecho levantado.

Sonny: No, I know what I'm doing.

Jason: He only speaks Spanish?

Sonny: Yeah, not a word of English. And even if he understood, you know, he owes me his immigration status, not to mention his life.

Jason: All right.

Sonny: Ready?

Jason: I got here a few ideas about how Miami might come after you next.

Sonny: So do I, so --

Max: You can't go in there.

Janine: The last guy couldn't stop me.

Max: No one gets in without an appointment.

Janine: I'm family. I don't need an appointment.

Sonny: What's going on? What do you want?

Janine: Well. I hope you've got a prom coming up because there's no way I'm letting Courtney marry you.

Elizabeth: Faith, what are you doing here? And how do you even know where here is? We just moved.

Faith: Oh, I overheard Ric on a call with your realtor. I just stopped by to wish you well moving into your new place.

Elizabeth: Ok -- Ric, I need you!

Faith: Don't blow a fuse. I'm going.

Elizabeth: Good.

Faith: You know, you really should try not to get so wound up. They say stress isn't good for the recovery.

Elizabeth: Is that another one of your veiled threats? You can just stop because I'm not afraid of you. And if you keep getting in my face, I'm going to show you exactly why you should be afraid of me.

Faith: You want a piece of me, Elizabeth? Hmm? Come and get it, anytime.

Ric: Elizabeth, where are you?

Elizabeth: Yeah, I'm on the porch with a problem.

Ric: What are you doing here?

Elizabeth: Funny, that was my question.

Faith: I just came by --

Ric: Ok, stop right there. I'm going to tell you for the last time -- you're not welcome here. I don't want you near my wife or my house again.

Janine: This isn't personal, Jason. In fact, I thought you looked pretty yummy in that tuxedo, as a matter of fact. It's just that looks don't count for much. You can't pay the mortgage with them. You can't eat them for dinner. Huh. You need cold, hard cash for that. And you had it, tons of it! How could you give up a Quartermaine inheritance to come work for this glorified thug?

Jason: Was that a question?

Janine: yes, that was a question, and I expect an answer if you want to marry my daughter. Look, I am completely justified in being concerned here because, from what I can tell, you -- you're, like, clinically weird. And you, Sonny, get that look off your face. I'm talking to you. I know exactly what you're up to here. You ordered your soldier to marry my daughter so that you could tighten your hold on both of them. Now, with this guy Iíve got nothing vested, but you know -- you know how invested I am in my baby girl. She is just so trusting, she doesn't know you're setting her up. But I do, and I'm going to tell her.

Jason: Look, nobody's being set up or forced to do anything they don't want to do.

Janine: You say you love my daughter? Well, then, you prove it. You walk away from Sonny right now and you go back to your life as a Quartermaine.

Skye: Why should I just sit back and let you pull one over on Courtney yet again?

A.J.: Just trying to help.

Skye: Oh, please. You're plying that money grubbing mother of hers with cash and booze to ruin Courtneyís happiness.

A.J.: Well, excuse me. I mean, who is this -- this self-righteous goody two-shoes, and what have you done with my self-serving Skye? Oh, wait a minute. You're working on a little extortion here, huh? How much you want?

Skye: Gee, I think Iím offended.

A.J.: You'll get over it.

Skye: You are looking at the new, improved Skye, the one who channels her efforts into worthy goals.

A.J.: Right.

Skye: Although, sometimes achieving those goals might take a special kind of help that only a certain kind of person can provide.

A.J.: Pretty convoluted way of saying you want something. Why didn't you just ask?

Skye: I did, in blackmail -- the only language you understand.

Emily: A picnic sounds -- sounds great. But -- um -- grandmother's hosting a tea.

Zander: A tea?

Emily: Mm-hmm. There's a visiting committee in Port Charles representing the daughters of fine lineage.

Zander: What does that have to do with us?

Emily: Well, they're recruiting new members locally, and grandmother wants me to be a charter member of the Port Charles branch.

[Zander snickers]

Zander: This is a joke, right?

Emily: No, I'm totally serious.

Zander: It's for Lila, right? There's -- I understand. It's for Lila. The daughters of whatever -- it's -- you got to do it. I understand.

Emily: No, I'm really interested in joining.

Zander: Ok, why?

Emily: Because they do a lot of good things. You know, like to raise money for charity and stuff like that.

Zander: Hmm. What does old Nikolas think about you joining this group of old-heir, blue-haired snobs?

Emily: Well, he thinks it's great.

Zander: I'm surprised. You know, Nikolas is full of surprises these days. You know, I still -- I still can't get what possessed him to pay my bail.

Emily: I possessed him. You know, we're best friends.

Zander: Since when?

Emily: Since always.

Zander: What does that make Lucky and Elizabeth?

Emily: Well, they're -- they're my best friends, too, you know? The four of us -- we've just always been together and -- but, yeah, Nikolas and I had a -- a special connection, and we'll always have it.

Zander: Hmm. Why do I get the feeling that this is a "members only, Zander, keep out" message?

Emily: Oh, God. Zander, don't be so silly. Um -- I'll call you tomorrow. I just -- I really have to get going right now, so I'm just going to go and do that.

Emily: Yeah.

Zander: What about later? Can I come see you?

Emily: You know, I'll be tired and -- uh -- tomorrow's better, you know? Uh -- you really need to go now, so --

Zander: Yeah.

Lucky: When did Stefan get involved in this?

Luke: Ask your brother, and be sure to believe every lie he tells you. Stefan's been visiting Laura. For how long, I don't know. Maybe from the beginning. The doctors are on his payroll. God knows what they've done to her. He's probably the reason she's catatonic. Those people have a -- have a need to have mind control over their victims.

Lucky: What -- what about the Russian coin search?

Luke: That was just an elaborate scheme to get me out of town and give Stefan unlimited access to your mother.

Lucky: Ok. We can figure this out. Let's just try to work together --

Luke: No, we're not working together! You're working with them! You still can't believe that Nikolas has anything to do with this!

Lucky: Dad, Iím just trying to keep a clean head here, not see a war where it doesn't exist.

Luke: It does exist! If you'd have spent a little more time visiting your mother instead of just turning her over to brother Cassadine, maybe you would've seen this coming, maybe you would've seen her go from bad to worse, and maybe you would've asked why!

Lucky: Ok, fine! I'm a horrible son. You just want to beat me up for the rest of my life? Or you going to stop and look and let me help you now?

Luke: I don't need your help. I don't want it. You just stay in your dream world, where everything Nikolas does is good and pure and fine, and stay out of my way! .

Skye: Can't you go any faster?

A.J.: I'm doing the best I can.

Skye: Do you think it's going to work?

A.J.: Borderline brilliant.

Skye: Alexis makes adults uncomfortable with her high-strung neuroses. God only knows what effect she has on that baby.

A.J.: Right, and you're the model of tranquility.

Skye: Well, at least Iím not certifiably insane. Kristina knows me. Alexis is a virtual stranger to that child.

[door closes]

Ned: Let's go see if we can find Skye, shall we? See if she's in the living room.

Skye: Oh, well, there she is, you little pumpkin. Did daddy take you for a walk?

Ned: She loves walking through the rose garden. I think it's fast becoming her favorite flower.

Skye: Well, we are next going to have to introduce her to Casablanca Lilies.

Ned: Oh. So you're developing her tastes for the more expensive things in life, huh?

Skye: Well, it's the least a princess brat deserves.

Ned: Hey, maybe the -- the three of us can spend some time together after Alexis' visit.

Skye: Yeah, if she ever gets here.

Ned: Sweet little girl. You're just so sweet. Hey.

Skye: Oh, Alexis. We were just wondering when you were --

Ned: You're late again.

Alexis: Barely, but I'm here now. Hi! Hi, baby! Hi, baby. Oh, my gosh.

[Alexis sniffs]

Alexis: Come here. You smell like flowers.

[Alexis sniffs]

Alexis: Yum, yum. Did someone take you out in the garden? Huh? Hello, sweetheart. Ooh. Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh.

Skye: You know, maybe we should give them some time alone.

[Kristina coughs]

Ned: Since when do you want to leave Alexis alone with Kristina?

Emily: Ok --

Nikolas: Emily.

Emily: I'm going to say this fast, so pay attention. Zander might be right behind me because I just told him a brutally obvious lie about why I couldn't be with him to make him believe I was coming here to meet you. I know he followed me from home. I'm not sure if he came all the way to this island, but there's a pretty good chance he did. So could I please just hang out with you until he shows up and hopefully finds us doing something romantic?

Nikolas: Is this what you really want?

Emily: I already explained this. I have two choices. I can either drag Zander through the hell of cancer and watch his spirit die piece by piece along with my body, or I can push him away and make him so mad that he finally gives up. I've already made my decision. It is not up for debate. And if Zander walks in here, I really don't want him to see me crying. Please.

Nikolas: Ok.

Emily: Nikolas, you said you would help me.

Nikolas: I will, I will, I will, I will.

Emily: Ok. Well, then, think of something romantic fast.

Nikolas: Oh -- ok. Ok, ok, ok, ok. I don't know, I supposed we could -- we could dance or --

Emily: Yes. Yes, yes, ok. A waltz, like -- like the night of the bacchanalia.

Nikolas: All right. Music or no?

Emily: No, no, it would hurt more.

Nikolas: Ok.

[door opens]

Emily: All right, we're on.

Nikolas: Ok.

Luke: The dance is over. Do I search this moldy pile of rocks, or do you tell me which rafter Stefan is hanging from?

Lucky: You realize this is about to spiral out of control, don't you, now that my dad has a real reason to focus his anger?

Summer: So what's the deal with Stefan?

Lucky: Stefan is obviously obsessed with my mother. Him being back, you know -- he's a perfect excuse for my dad to go off again.

Summer: Well, that's exactly what it is -- it's an excuse.

Lucky: Hmm? What do you mean?

Summer: I mean, I know I came to the party late and all, but if you want my opinion, this has nothing to do with the Cassadines for Luke. Luke has so much love for Laura and he just doesn't have anywhere to put that love. You know, he can't help her get better. There's no positive actions that he can take to bring her back to her life or her sanity. He feels like he's let down the one person in the world that should've been able to count on him. So fighting Nikolas and Stefan -- it's like his way of feeling like he's redeeming himself?

Lucky: You know what? You're right. You know what? My dad was just doing what he thought was best for my mother. So was Nikolas. Just about time that I think on my own for once. Would you come with me? I could really use your support.

Summer: Of course.

Ric: Elizabeth --

Elizabeth: Yeah?

Ric: One thing.

Elizabeth: What?

Ric: You got to promise me -- resign from Kellyís today.

Elizabeth: Ok, listen, I realize waitressing isn't a career path, but what am I going to do with myself? I don't have the temperament to be a homemaker.

Ric: No, you have the temperament for an artist, so you'll be in the art studio creating art. You're going to need about 28 canvases, too.

Elizabeth: 28? Why 28?

Ric: That's about how many it's going to take to fill the Harvey Gallery, the site of the first ever Elizabeth Webber one-woman show.

Elizabeth: "One-woman show"?

Ric: Yeah.

Elizabeth: I -- oh, Ric, you didnít. You didn't.

Ric: I set it up this morning.

Elizabeth: You did?

Ric: I set it up this morning.

Elizabeth: Oh, God! Do you know how much I love you?

Ric: Does that mean you're not angry that I went behind your back?

Elizabeth: Oh, please. Do I look angry? Thank you.

Ric: You look beautiful.

Elizabeth: Thank you. I don't know how to thank you. You know, I'm going to make you so proud of me.

Ric: Uh-uh. I already am.

Elizabeth: Thank you. I'd better get inside. Don't want to be late for my last day.

Ric: Right.

Elizabeth: Ok.

Ric: Go. See you later.

Faith: Brilliant impersonation of a happily married man content with his life. Just not convincing enough to fool me.

Jason: I'm not interested in being a Quartermaine. Neither is Courtney.

Janine: You sound like you think you know my daughter pretty well.

Jason: That's right.

Janine: You know what you're missing here? The impact that a mother's opinion can have on her child. But I'm not really that surprised because the concept of family doesn't seem to mean much to you. Could you try to get a clue here, Jason? Raising a kid alone is not easy, but one of the payoffs is the power that you have over how that kid turns out. I'm talking choices -- good, bad, right, wrong. Are you keeping up with me here?

Jason: Let me ask you a question. Are you happy with the choices you made when you raised Courtney?

Janine: You're not good enough for my daughter, are you? And you're going to marry her over my dead body.

Sonny: Janine, do you ever stop yapping? Because there's only one reason why you would poke your nose where it doesn't belong. So what I'm going to do, I'm going to offer you $500,000 to shut your mouth and leave Jason and Courtney alone. $500,000 -- do you know what that is?

Janine: Is that what you want, baby? Do you want your mama to leave you alone? Oh, honey, I am so glad you walked in when you did. You got to hear for yourself what a cold-blooded, evil pig your brother is, trying to pay me off to abandon my daughter.

Carly: Courtney, don't even take this at face value.

Courtney: I won't, I won't. I've learned when it comes to my mother that there's always another side. So, what's going on, guys?

Sonny: Well, Janine doesn't think Jasonís good enough for you. I know better. I want you happy. I just offered her a couple pennies, you know, so she could --

Jason: Yeah, you know, Janine wants me to go back to the Quartermaines, doesn't want us to get married.

Janine: Ok, I just ask an innocent question, and your fiancť here rips into me like some kind of rabid dog.

Courtney: Why are you always making trouble for me?

Janine: Hey, Iím trying to look out for you.

Courtney: That's not what I need. A little support would be nice.

Janine: Ok, honey, I -- look, I understand about sexual attraction, and he is -- he's a babe. But why do you have to marry him?

Courtney: Because I love him, Mom. And I love you, too, and I want you to be at our wedding, but don't make me choose, ok?

[phone rings]

Jason: Yeah. All right, all right. No, no, no, we'll be right there.

Sonny: What?

Jason: We got to go.

Janine: Hey -- wait -- what -- we're in -- we're having a family discussion here.

Sonny: Janine, shut up.

Janine: What kind of -- is this making some kind of statement that your gangster business is more important than the love that you profess to my daughter?

Jason: We're getting married no matter what she thinks.

Carly: Ok, where do you get off? You don't even know Jason at all. He is kind. He is brave. He is loyal. Janine, don't worry. He's got more money than he'll ever be able to spend.

Janine: Yeah, well, if you like him so much, why don't you marry him?

Carly: Oh --

[phone rings]

Carly: What?

Elizabeth: Hey, Carly, it's Elizabeth.

Carly: It's not a good time.

Elizabeth: I'm at Kellyís right now and I need to see you. It's important. Thanks.

Faith: That fleeting glimmer of rage I used to see in your eyes -- it's not fleeting anymore, is it? Burning you alive. Doesn't your little wifey see it? Or does our little waitress mistake that for passion? Oh, wait, I'm sorry. She's some big, scary artist now, isn't she?

Ric: Don't you ever get tired of ingratiating yourself into people's lives and listening in on their conversations? I mean, you're truly pathetic.

Faith: Right. You just keep telling yourself that. In the meantime, if you decide to go up against Sonny again, or even if you just want a little moral support, you know where to find me.

Ric: Listen to me. I know exactly how to deal with Sonny. And I don't need any help from anybody. Least of all you.

Zander: Is Lucky upstairs?

Elizabeth: Uh-uh. No, he took off with Summer.

Zander: Do you know where he went?

Elizabeth: No. Is something wrong?

Zander: Emily blew me off with this obvious lie and took off to Spoon Island. I followed her there, but the security nailed me and I couldn't check it out. But Lucky knows the tunnels. He knows how I can find her.

Elizabeth: Ok, ok, Zander, first of all, why are you following Emily? If she's going to see Nikolas, it's because they're friends. And second of all, you need to stay as far away from Spoon Island as possible. Start nosing around there and you're going to end up in a world of trouble you don't need.

Nikolas: What makes you think Stefan is here? I haven't heard from him in months.

Luke: Cut the crap. You know he's been at the sanitarium, sniffing around after my wife.

Nikolas: Why would I expect you to listen to reason or even recognize the truth when you hear it?

Luke: What else did he order? Was he in on the hospital switch, the drug therapy? Has he ordered a lobotomy?

Nikolas: You're right, Luke, you're right. My uncle's the big villain here, the source of all my mother's problems. It was Stefan who dragged Laura into hiding and ran her ragged. It was Stefan, evil Stefan who, when Laura broke from reality, refused to get her psychiatric help. It was he -- no, wait. That was you. See, now, that doesn't fit. Stefan must've been pulling your strings.

Luke: You tell Stefan the game is on.

Alexis: Am I allowed to step out on the terrace with her, or would that be considered erratic behavior?

Ned: Well, actually, we just got back from a long walk. It might be better that she -- you know, she stay inside.

Alexis: Got it -- erratic.

Skye: You're right. I am worried about leaving Alexis alone with Kristina. But the most important person in the world right now is that little girl, and you know how sensitive and aware she is. I don't -- I don't want her to feel any tension among the grownups.

Ned: You might be right there.

Skye: Right. Like it or not, Alexis is Kristinaís mother, and their time together should be pleasurable. So we should be big enough to give them some ample room. All right?

Ned: That's a good idea.

Skye: Ok.

Alexis: I love you so much. I do. Whoo, nose. Lipstick kiss. You know that mommy would do back handsprings down main street to be with you. Actually, you have no idea the lengths mommy has gone to to be with you.

Dr. Pinter: Lucky? It's nice to finally meet you. I've only dealt with Nikolas so far.

Lucky: I know. I should've been by here before to see her.

Dr. Pinter: I wasn't implying anything. I'm sure your brother's warned you that Lauraís completely unresponsive. She won't recognize you or even know that you're there. Anyone would find that difficult to face.

Lucky: I can handle it.

Summer: You sure about this?

Lucky: I'd rather remember my mother the way she was. But if there's the slightest chance I can make a difference, I have to try.

Carly: Ok, Elizabeth. What was so important that you needed to see me in person?

Elizabeth: Well, Bobbie is at a conference and I can't get a hold of her. And since you always say being the boss' daughter gives you an interest in what happens here, you're the next best thing. I'm quitting, effective today.

Carly: Oh, that's your notice?

Elizabeth: Mm-hmm.

Carly: That's really nice, Elizabeth. Very nice after my mother's kept you on salary all these years. Do you mind if I ask why you're leaving?

Elizabeth: I promised Ric. Come on.

Carly: Right.

Elizabeth: I thought you'd be thrilled.

Carly: Well, I am. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Elizabeth: You know, Ric and Sonny are making an effort at keeping peace. It'd be really nice if we could do the same.

Carly: You and Ric have your lives. Sonny and I have ours. And the further apart we stay, the better we'll all get along.

Elizabeth: Works for me.

Sonny: I want to look at the shipment.

Jason: Open that one up.

Sonny: How much did our friend in Miami ante up to buy my accountant? And don't even think about lying, Greg.

Greg: $1 million. Plus he'd let me walk away with my life.

Sonny: You disappoint me, Greg. And you do Benny a great disservice.

Greg: If you'd let me explain --

Sonny: I don't want you to explain!

Sonny: There's only one thing you can do to save yourself.

Greg: Anything.

Sonny: The supplier in Miami -- what's his name?

Alice: You know, the baby was so over stimulated after her mother left that I thought a nice stroll around would just be perfect to tire her out before dinner.

Alexis: [British accent] good. Why don't you heat the bottle and I'll watch the little one.

Alice: You know, I think it's wonderful the way you love children.

Alexis: [Normal voice] hello, sweet pea.

[Kristina coos]

Alexis: Hello, sweet pea.

Skye: A.J., Did you get the tape?

A.J.: There's been so much traffic in and out of the living room, I haven't had a chance to get to it. But it may be useless. You haven't heard the baby cry, have you?

Skye: No.

A.J.: Neither have I. And obviously no one else has or they would've come running. Look, this may be a great way to make Alexis look bad, but you might want to come up with another plan.

Alexis: [Normal voice] does it tickle? You know what? It itches mommy. It really does. Take that off. Oh, oh -- just for a second. Watch it. We'll put it right there. We're going to be laughing about this years from now when I tell you why mommy had to dress up as an English butler so that I could spend more time with you.

Courtney: Why can't you understand that I love Jason? I mean, he makes me happier than I have ever been in my life.

Janine: For now, honey, but he's not what you need for the long haul.

Courtney: How do you know what I need? When did you learn, Mom? When you were at home, I was at school. When I got home, you went to work.

Janine: Ok, I admit that I wasn't the kind of mother that I wanted to be, but I was forced to work nights. Ok, maybe that's not completely true. I chose to because the other option was going on welfare. Maybe I should've done that.

Courtney: I am not blaming you, Mom.

Janine: Yes, you are. And now you're punishing me by repeating my mistakes.

Courtney: Ugh, that's ridiculous!

Janine: No, it's not! The reason that I worked nights and left my little girl alone at home was because I got knocked up by a gambler, and now you're marrying one.

Courtney: Jason is not a gambler.

Janine: Oh, yes, he is, and he's just like Mike. The only difference is that Mike was small time and Jason is high stakes. Baby, I wish you would listen to me. Because one way or another, Jason -- he's going to break your heart.

Courtney: Then I guess my heart is a lot stronger than you seem to think.

Jason: We're no closer to getting a name in Miami than we were before we busted Greg.

Sonny: Yeah, we can still send a message.

Jason: Yeah, we can start by dumping these drugs in the harbor; make it too expensive for them to try again.

Sonny: We can force him to show his face. Hold on to the drugs, see if he makes contact.

Jason: It's too risky.

Sonny: Yeah, but it's necessary. I'm not -- you know, how am I going to fight if I don't know who the enemy is?

Stefan: I understand you're looking for me. Here I am.

Lucky: My mother's really gone.

Summer: I'm so sorry.

[Lucky sobs]

Lucky: No. I was too scared to face reality. I was hiding from the problem, dumping it off on Nikolas. I couldn't stand by her and see her in so much pain and not be able to do anything for her. Now I might not ever have that chance again with her.

Emily: You didn't have to come with me.

Nikolas: I had business in town, anyway. How you feeling?

Emily: So far so good. But I know from experience that the chemo gets worse as you go along.

Nikolas: You'll make it.

Emily: You sound so sure.

Nikolas: I am. You're one of the strongest people I know, Em. And I want you to know that you're not alone, ok?

Zander: Hmm. The tea end early, or Nikolas joining the little group, too?

Carly: Yeah, well, that's the new schedule, effective immediately. I know it's inconvenient, but Elizabeth didn't bother to give any notice. Yeah, well, thanks, Penny. Yeah.

Ric: Hi. Seen my wife?

Carly: She left. And as promised, she quit.

Ric: Oh, good. I hope she's out shopping. We're -- we're moving. You know, you really should see our new house. The most extraordinary features.

Carly: Well, good for you. Where's my driver? I need to get home.

Ric: I'd hate for you to have to sit around and wait. Why don't you let me drive you home?

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Skye: What are you doing to Kristina?

Jason: Is that A.J.'s full payment or just the first installment?

Carly: Tell me what you are after, and it better not be me.

Luke: You still think you're in love with my wife.

Zander: Tell me you don't love me.
