>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Nikolas: You're a very attractive woman, Lydia, but Iím not interested.
Stefan: Do this my way, we'll all get what we want.
Luke: I know how to protect my wife!
Lorenzo: Your people do good work, Corinthos. We'll definitely be doing business in the future.
Sonny: Nothing's going to keep this wedding from coming off, all right?
Ric: Tomorrow, you won't feel a thing.
Summer: Hey. Where you been all day?
Lucky: My dad's office.
Summer: Oh. That couldn't have been much fun.
Lucky: No, he hasn't paid a bill since winter. The liquor distributor is going to cut him off.
Summer: Wow. Maybe you could get him interested in saving the club so he can focus on that?
Lucky: No, dad wants to destroy the club, not save it. It's kind of like he's trashing his own life.
Summer: Lucky, I hope you're not taking this all on yourself.
Lucky: You know what, I grew up running. It's just no matter how hard I try or how fast I run, I -- I can never outrun my family.
Lydia: Hi. I'm always so thirsty after I ride. Aren't you?
Nikolas: No, thanks. I'm sure my uncle and you will enjoy yourselves.
Lydia: No, no, forget Stefan. This is our dinner. We can spend it catching up.
Nikolas: Look, I'm late for a wedding.
Emily: Nikolas, are you ready? Hi.
Nikolas: Hi. Emily, Iíd like you to meet Lydia Karenin. Lydia, this is Emily Quartermaine, my date for the evening.
Courtney: What's this?
Sonny: Let's see, you're getting married, it's from a florist. I don't know, what do you think?
Courtney: They're perfect.
Sonny: I'm glad you like them.
Courtney: God, everything's like a dream. Everything I ever imagined that I wanted or wished I could have, you gave me.
Sonny: No, I just sign the checks.
Courtney: Come on.
Sonny: Well --
Courtney: You've always tried to be a good brother to me -- you know, to love me and protect me, run every last second of my life.
Sonny: Would I do that?
Courtney: Yeah, well, you didn't always do everything right, and I certainly didn't make things easy. But you never gave up.
Sonny: And I never will.
Courtney: I'm glad you're my brother.
Sonny: I love you. And I wish -- I wish you and Jason all the happiness in the world.
Carly: What took you so long?
Jason: What's wrong with these sleeves?
Carly: Well, here.
Jason: No, no, you open it.
Carly: No, it's your wedding present from me.
Jason: Yeah, but you love to open presents.
Carly: Yeah, I know what it is, Jason.
Jason: Please, open the present and help me with these stupid sleeves.
Carly: Do I know you or what?
Jason: Can you put them on?
Carly: Oh, gosh. Let me get these out of here. "Thank you, Carly. Thank you. They're exactly what I wanted. They're exactly what I needed, and I don't know what I would do without you."
Jason: What's going on here?
Carly: Nothing. I'm selfish and I'm self-centered, and Iím afraid that after you marry Courtney -- I don't know -- I'm not going to be able to call you at, like, 4:00 in the morning or anything.
Jason: What are you talking about? You never call me at 4:00 in the morning.
Carly: But if I wanted to, things are just going to be different now.
Jason: Is that why you're upset?
Carly: You're my best friend, Jason. I don't want to lose you.
Elizabeth: Oh. What a mess, right?
Ric: Uh-uh. No. It's brilliant.
Elizabeth: Oh, God. It's barely started, and I don't know whether I should finish it, or do I get outside and light a match?
Ric: I think you need a break.
Ric: Mm-hmm. So why don't you put away your little sketchpad, all right? You're finished.
Elizabeth: All right. Oh, I'm such a mess.
Ric: Oh, look. Oh, what have we got -- oh, let's open it.
Elizabeth: Oh, honey, look at my hands. They're so dirty. You open it.
Ric: All right, all right, all right.
Ric: Nice, hmm?
Elizabeth: Oh, wow. Oh, it's beautiful.
Ric: Yeah. It's going to look even better on you.
Elizabeth: Oh, thank you, honey.
Ric: You're welcome.
Elizabeth: What's the occasion?
Ric: Nothing. I just thought you deserved a break.
Elizabeth: You know me so well.
Ric: So why don't you go put it on, huh? And I'll -- I'll open the wine.
Elizabeth: Thank you.
Ric: Oh, wow.
Elizabeth: You like?
Ric: Amazing, amazing. Wow. Here is to my beautiful and talented wife. May she be a famous artist and mother very soon.
Elizabeth: And here is to my husband.
Ric: I love you very much.
Elizabeth: Honey, I love you, too, with all my heart. Mmm.
Ric: You know, if we had that pool I was talking about --
Ric: We'd be skinny-dipping right about now.
Elizabeth: Really? Just you and me?
Ric: Yeah, under the stars.
Ric: What's the matter?
Elizabeth: Let me sit down for a minute. I got to quit painting through lunch.
Ric: You ok?
Elizabeth: Yeah, this wine is just going straight to my head.
Ric: It's ok. Finish it. You'll feel better.
Elizabeth: Is that a promise?
Carly: Stand up straight.
Jason: I am standing straight.
Carly: Well, then the tie is crooked.
Jason: No, the tie is fine, Carly.
Carly: Fine. You want to look --
Carly: You want to look like a slob at your own wedding? That's fine, that's good. That's good by me.
Jason: Look, I'm not moving to the other side of the world. I'm not even leaving town. I'm just getting married.
Carly: I know. I'm happy for you, Jase. I am. I wanted this, right? But, ok, you're my best friend, and now you're not going to be, and I just feel a little bit --
Jason: We're still going to be friends.
Carly: But not best friends.
Jason: No, I didn't say that.
Carly: You didn't have to.
Jason: Don't start thinking all sideways, ok? We're friends, whether I like it or not. Sometimes we get on each other's nerves. It might be a little inconvenient. I might even get a headache. And you know what, if I tell you not to call me at 4:00 in the morning, you're going to call me at 4:00 in the morning.
Carly: Only if it's really, really important or I just really, really want to talk to you. But, you know, you can call me anytime.
Jason: And that's why we're always going to be friends. You stand by me, so I stand by you.
Carly: You make it sound like it's a chore.
Jason: Well, sometimes it is. But it doesn't matter. You're in my life. I can't explain why. You have too much courage for your own good. You're always around with these crazy plans, and you won't go away, and neither will I.
Jason: I'm always on your side, no matter how wrong you are.
Carly: And I'm always on your side, too. Oh. Oh, look, I smudged you.
Jason: No, no, it's ok.
Carly: No, it's all over the place.
Jason: Carly, take it easy. It's ok.
Carly: Oh -- hey.
Michael: Can I have the rings now?
Carly: "May I please, please have the rings?" Let's see -- let's get them for you. Ok. Here they are. Here are the plastic ones for you.
Michael: I don't want plastic ones.
Carly: You take the plastic ones, you give them to the priest, he switches them for you.
Michael: That isn't fair.
Jason: Buddy, come here. Here you go.
Carly: Jason, you're giving him the real rings?
Jason: Courtney and I are counting on you.
Carly: Jason, what if he loses them?
Jason: He's not going to lose them, right?
Michael: Right. What's so special about these, anyway?
Carly: Come here. What is so special about these rings -- they're a symbol of Courtney and Jasonís love, ok? And they cost a fortune, so you hang on to them really, really tight. You hear me?
Carly: Ok. Tight. Go show Jason how tight you can hold on to them.
Jason: Like this, like this? Ok, good.
Michael: It's starting to hurt my hand.
Sonny: So where's Carly? She's supposed to be helping you get ready.
Courtney: Sonny, I have plenty of time.
Sonny: She plans the thing, she plans the wedding, and then she can't help the bride get ready. This is not right.
Courtney: You're nervous.
Sonny: No, I'm not. I'm not nervous.
Courtney: Yeah, you are.
[knock on door]
Sonny: It's about time. Where you been?
Mike: I'm right on time.
Sonny: Where's Carly?
Courtney: Oh, Sonny's nervous. Just come in.
Sonny: No, I'm not -- Iím not nervous.
Mike: You know, I -- I never dreamed I'd have the chance to walk my little girl down the aisle.
Sonny: Ok, you know what, no one's going to walk anybody anywhere if we can't find Carly.
Courtney: Oh, can you please, please get Sonny out of here before he makes me nervous?
Sonny: Mike, come on. Where is she?
Mike: What --
Courtney: We'll be fine, really. I just can't watch you pace around here like that.
Mike: Look, you heard your sister. Come on, let's get out of here.
Sonny: What time --
Mike: Sonny, Sonny --
Sonny: What if I call --
Mike: No. Come on.
Courtney: Get out of here!
Mike: You want to know what time it is?
Sonny: Yeah, what time is --
Mike: Come out here. I'll tell you what time.
Luke: Ugh! Dr. Quack.
Cameron: Glad to see you're keeping yourself busy.
Luke: What's next? More trippy psychotropics? A cocktail or two of psychotic narcotic hypnotics? More involuntary restraint therapy, or are you going to go right for the slap therapy? What's up?
Cameron: Got to earn a living.
Luke: Yeah, well, why don't you get a real job and admit there's nothing wrong with me.
Cameron: Or, what, you'll hold me at knifepoint and then collapse?
Luke: Oh, yeah, bring that up. It's just a little bump on the head, some nasty meds, and one sip too much scotch. That happens all the time. I'm ok! I'm fine!
Cameron: I agree.
Luke: Oh, well, then unbuckle me and Iíll be on my merry way.
Cameron: There's nothing wrong with you physically, but you're -- how can I put this? You're nuts. You're grieving, you're in denial.
Luke: Yeah, well, who ain't?
Cameron: You've got to find a way of dealing with Lauraís illness without killing yourself or somebody else. And until you do, you're not going anywhere.
Luke: Ok. All right, all right, all right. Maybe I am a little bit paranoid. But that doesn't mean they aren't working against me.
Cameron: By "they," I assume you mean the little prince and his uncle Stefan?
Luke: Count Vlad was visiting Laura in her last hospital. For all I know, he's visiting her now. What's so hard for you to understand about this?
Cameron: Luke, I've reviewed Lauraís records.
Luke: Yeah, well, did they mention that the Cassadines kept her prisoner for years? That Stefan drugged her mother and kept her drugged? I'd be nuts if I didn't try to save her.
Cameron: Laura is profoundly ill, Luke. You can't save her, but you can get your own life back together.
Luke: Oh, God. So it is true that you're working with them. You're in on it.
[knock on door]
Lucky: Can I have a second with my father?
Cameron: He's all yours.
Lucky: We need to go over some financial stuff about the club.
Luke: There's only two things I want to hear from you. Number one, you've signed the paper that gets me out of here. And number two, where did you and the spawn from hell put my wife?
Lydia: So, who's getting married?
Emily: Oh, my brother is.
Lydia: Maybe I could tag along?
Emily: It's a very small wedding. It's family only.
Lydia: Oh. And that includes Nikolas?
Nikolas: We'd better get going.
Lydia: Well, have a wonderful time.
Emily: It's nice to meet you.
Lydia: Yeah. You know, we should get together right after the wedding and discuss all the details, especially the flowers. I love wedding bouquets. Mine is going to have to be stunning.
Emily: Oh, you're getting married?
Lydia: Yeah, absolutely. Just have to set the date.
Nikolas: Good night, Lydia.
Lydia: Good night.
Stefan: You set this up for you and Nikolas?
Lydia: No, for me and your housekeeper.
Stefan: Did it occur to you that Nikolas might have plans for the evening? That you're embarrassing yourself and wasting everyone's time?
Lydia: You underestimate me, Stefan. I learned all sorts of fascinating information.
Sonny: What took Carly so long?
Jason: Well, mostly the cufflinks and the tie and the shoes and the tux --
Sonny: You would think this is her wedding.
Jason: It is, except Courtneyís the bride.
Sonny: So, a little nervous? A little nervous?
Jason: Um --
Sonny: I know how much you hate this stuff.
Jason: Yeah, well, you know, I know it's important to make a commitment in front of other people. You taught me that. But what's up with these tuxes? Why do I have to wear this thing?
Sonny: It looks great on you.
Jason: Yeah. Yeah, whatever.
Sonny: It's going to be good standing up there next to you.
Jason: You got me here. You've been a friend and a father. You did everything a father's supposed to and you taught me what I needed to know, and you respected me once I learned. I have a life because of you.
Sonny: Whatever I gave you, you repaid it a hundred times over.
Jason: I don't know how to thank you.
Sonny: You don't have to thank me. We're family. That's all that matters.
Carly: You're perfect.
Courtney: Now it's time for the dress.
Carly: Are you kidding? Come here. Come here, come here, come here.
Courtney: Ok, ok. Is the matron of honor supposed to be so bossy?
Carly: Yes, it's tradition. Just like these gifts.
Courtney: Hmm. Thank you.
Carly: You're welcome. That's from Lila. She couldn't be here, but she wanted you to have that. Ok?
Courtney: Oh, God. It's beautiful.
Carly: See the initials? It's for Constance Morgan, her mom. But now it's Courtney Morgan.
Courtney: Lila's given me her blessing.
Carly: Yeah, and her love, too. Any chance you want to open this one?
Courtney: Yes, Ma'am!
Carly: Yes, yes, good. It's from me and Sonny.
Courtney: Oh -- what did you guys do?
Courtney: Oh, Carly. They're gorgeous. You already helped me pick out the other ones.
Carly: Yeah, but these are special. We got them to match the engagement ring.
Courtney: Thank you.
Carly: You're welcome. So we got something old, something new, something borrowed --
Courtney: But didn't Sonny give you that?
Carly: Yes, he did, so don't lose it.
Courtney: Oh, gosh. Oh, I promise I will put it back on your wrist safe and sound.
Carly: I trust you.
Courtney: Thank you, Carly. Thank you so much for giving me the wedding of my dreams.
Carly: I love Jason. It's no secret. But I love you, too, and I want the two of you to have the best day and the best wedding ever.
Ric: Elizabeth? Elizabeth, are you awake? I'm sorry I had to do that. But I swear to you I was careful with the medication. You'll -- you'll just wake up and you'll think that we slept together all night.
Ric: I told I was going to bring home our new baby. I'm going to make that happen now. And in a few months, I'll place that baby in your arms and we'll be a family.
Ric: I love you so much.
Luke: You can let me out of here the easy way.
Lucky: You're not well yet.
Luke: Or I can fight my way out. You know if I decide to pull a Houdini, Iíll disappear without a trace.
Lucky: Dad, Cameron wants you to deal with reality.
Luke: Your mother is my life, my entire life. I need to see her, she needs to see me. That's reality.
Lucky: Dad, but seeing her makes her worse.
Luke: You -- you were working against me and your mother. You aligned yourself with our enemies. That's reality. Now, maybe they've fried your brains again. I don't know -- maybe you just hate me and you're just trying to get even for --
Lucky: No, you just blame yourself for what's happened to mom.
Luke: No, I blame them!
Lucky: You're ripping your whole life apart, Dad.
Luke: All right, look, these are your choices. You can help me and we'll call it even. If you don't, I no longer have a son. You are my enemy.
Lucky: No, I am your son. I'm not your enemy. You can hate me or not. It's your choice.
Emily: You look so handsome, Jason.
Jason: I'm so glad you're here.
Sonny: Emily, hi.
Sonny: I'm glad you're doing well.
Emily: Thank you.
Emily: I'm so happy everything turned out so well, and you know the family's going to show up.
Jason: Yeah, that's ok.
Emily: I'll drag them out if they get too obnoxious or anything.
Jason: No, don't worry about the Quartermaines. Just enjoy yourself.
Nikolas: That's the plan.
Janine: Sonny, I have every right to see my baby get married. Please don't fight me.
Sonny: Listen, if Courtney wants you here, that's fine. But if you cause any trouble, you know where you're going.
Mike: Courtney is about to have the wedding of her dreams, and you won't spoil it.
Sonny: That's right.
Janine: Hey, if my daughter wants to marry her brother's chief thug, what am I supposed to do?
Sonny: Ok, see what Iím talking about? More comments like that, you know where you're going. You're out of here.
Janine: Ok, all right.
Sonny: I'm just telling you.
Janine: All right, I know. It's Courtneyís life, and I will find a way to deal with it, ok?
Mike: Good, good.
Edward: Who in God's name invited that dreadful woman?
Alan: She's the mother of the bride-to-be. She's supposed to be at the wedding.
Monica: Why don't you go and say hi, Sweet Cheeks?
Emily: Hello, Grandfather.
Edward: You look pale. Did you skip breakfast?
Emily: Oh, you caught me again.
Edward: Well, congratulations, Jason. For once in your heathen life, you've shown the good discretion to include your whole family. Of course, you gangsters really don't belong in church.
Emily: Ok, one more insult, and you are so out of here.
Edward: What, for stating the facts? Jason's a heathen, pure and simple. That's all.
Emily: I'll give grandmother a full report.
Edward: Oh, please. Come on.
Sonny: You let Janine go visit Courtney?
Mike: Well, would you be happier if she made a big scene right here?
Sonny: No, no, I just want everything to be perfect for my sister.
Mike: Yeah, I understand.
Sonny: All right.
Carly: Open your eyes.
Courtney: Hi, Mom.
Janine: You look beautiful.
Courtney: Will you please try to be happy for me today?
Janine: I'll do my best.
Courtney: Mom, I love Jason with all my heart, and I want to be with him more than anything.
Janine: You know, you were the one thing that I have ever done right in my entire life, and I am so very proud of you.
Courtney: Ok. No smeared makeup. Everything has to be perfect.
Janine: I love you.
Courtney: I love you, too.
Michael: I'm ready for my flower.
Carly: Oh, you're ready for your flower? All right. Have a seat, mister. Mr. Man. Show me those rings.
Michael: I'm doing my job like Jason told me.
Carly: Oh, yes, you are. Good. Ok, let's get this in here. Look at you. Perfect.
Courtney: You know, Michael, I can't get married without those rings.
Michael: I know.
Courtney: You know. You look very handsome.
Carly: Ok, great. Yes, now get up, ok? You're going to wrinkle your dress.
Courtney: Will you listen to her? I look fine!
Carly: Yeah, well, you know what, I don't want fine. I want perfect. Now get over there.
Courtney: Oh, wow.
Carly: Ok. Put this over here. And when you walk down -- when you're walking down the aisle --
Courtney: Don't cry. Don't cry. Don't step on my dress.
Carly: I'm stepping on your dress. I'm sorry.
[knock on door]
Javier: A woman's on the couch. She isn't moving.
Lorenzo: Could be Lansingís wife.
Lorenzo: Go see if he's passed out somewhere.
Javier: Nobody's here.
Lorenzo: I think she's O.D.'d.
Summer: He isn't any better?
Lucky: No. No, he just thinks Iím the enemy.
Summer: Hey, come on, give him some time.
Lucky: No, he's always like this. It's Luke against Frank Smith, Luke against the Cassadines, the world, and me. You know what? I -- I think I lost him this time.
Summer: Maybe not.
Lucky: No, no. You know what, I just should let him out. You know what, Iím going to tell him where mom is. I mean, he can't make her any worse.
Summer: Ok, you know what, you should see this. A messenger brought it.
Lucky: From General Hospital. What? Oh, you've got to be --
Summer: Whoa, whoa! What is it? Tell me, tell me!
Lucky: It just says if I don't sign the papers they got to let him go. They can't hold him against his will.
Summer: And what if you do sign them? What then?
Lucky: Then Iíll be committing my dad to a psych ward.
Lorenzo: No drugs, no paraphernalia, no empty bottles. Doesn't make any sense.
Javier: Alcazar, we should leave.
Lorenzo: No. We shouldn't let her die.
Javier: We don't need any trouble.
Lorenzo: No, but we need Ric Lansing. If we save her life, he'll owe us.
Operator: 911 operator. What's your emergency?
[Pachelbel's "Canon" plays]
Carly: Ok. Flowers.
Carly: Something old.
Carly: Something new?
Carly: Something borrowed.
Carly: Something blue.
Carly: Father of the bride?
Carly: Stand right here.
Carly: Don't -- don't wrinkle her dress. Don't stand on it, either.
Mike: I wouldn't dream of it.
Carly: Ok. Rings. Michael. Michael?
Mike: No, hey, Iíll find him.
Carly: No, no, no. Stay, stay, stay right here. Don't move. Michael?
Courtney: Oh, boy.
Carly: Michael? Michael, are you in here? Hey!
Michael: Aunt Courtney can't get married.
Carly: What? Hey, what's wrong?
Michael: I dropped the ring. Now aunt Courtney can't get married.
Carly: Sweetheart, she was just teasing you. What happened?
Michael: I lost her ring.
Carly: Ok, you dropped it? Where did you drop it? You look over here. Where did you drop it? Under here?
Michael: Over there.
Carly: Ok, I'll check under there for you. Ok. Oh -- Michael? I got it.
Michael: You did?
Carly: I did. Right here. Now let me see -- show me that other ring. You hold on to this, ok? You hold on tight. You do not let go until the priest asks for them, ok? You understand?
Michael: Don't worry, I wonít. I promise.
Carly: Ok. Now, let me see you get all straightened up. You're a little bit messy now.
Michael: Thanks for not getting mad.
Carly: Oh, sweetheart, we lose things, we find things, life goes on, right?
Carly: I love you, Michael.
Michael: I love you, too.
Carly: Oh, ok. Now we got to get out of here.
Carly: Because the wedding is about to start.
Michael: For real?
Carly: Yes! Go!
Mike: I'm so proud of you, sweetie.
Courtney: Thank you.
Mike: And I never would've imagined that I'd be in my daughter's wedding with my son as best man.
Courtney: Well, things have a way of working out.
Mike: I wish Carly would get back here with Michael.
Courtney: I know. People are going to start to wonder what's going on.
Mike: Oh, don't you mind that. Just -- my feet are killing me, but I'm afraid to move.
Courtney: I know, so am I. Oh, God, I -- I'm floating. It doesn't make sense. I'm supposed to be all nervous and worried, and I have never felt so calm. This truly is the happiest day of my life.
Summer: How you doing?
Luke: Hi, gorgeous.
Summer: Huh -- so you're into bondage. You know, I always suspected.
Luke: Ooh, you know me so well. You ok?
Summer: Yeah, sure.
Luke: About the other night --
Summer: No, forget about it.
Luke: I never meant to harm you in any way.
Summer: I know. And I know you didn't mean to hurt Lucky, either.
Luke: Well, it's nice to see you. Thanks for stopping by.
Summer: Here, I wanted to show you something.
Summer: The commitment papers. He didn't sign them.
Luke: You mean he didn't sign them yet.
Summer: Come on, Luke. Lucky's got an impossible choice here.
Luke: No, it's not impossible. It's very simple. Does he want to be a Spencer, or does he want to stick me in the bin and let the Cassadines control whatever's left of Lauraís life?
Summer: Luke, Lucky's not the enemy.
Luke: He is if he chooses to be. You could help me. You could unleash me, let me out of here. You could do that. Do it for Lucky.
Summer: That's not my call to make.
Luke: No, come on, Summer. Do it for me. Do it for the fun we had.
Summer: Oh, come on. Come on.
Luke: Do it for Lucky. If you love him, then help. Do what he hasn't got the brains or the courage to do. Let me go! Please.
Lydia: You, there. Can you change a tire?
Lucky: There's a garage down the street. It's on Elm.
Lydia: No, no, I'm not walking another step.
Lucky: You know what, there's a phone inside. You can call a tow truck.
Lydia: No, no, I don't need a tow truck. I just need to have my tire changed. Is that so difficult?
Lucky: I'm sorry, Ma'am, but Iím busy.
Lydia: Look, I'll pay you. In fact, Iíll pay you double.
[Pachelbel's "Canon" plays]
Edward: What the devil could be taking so long?
Janine: It's kind of romantic.
Edward: Oh, please.
Alan: Don't start.
Emily: Do you think something's wrong?
Nikolas: It is a bit strange.
Sonny: I should probably go check on Carly.
Mike: Sonny, Jason, get back here.
Courtney: Ok, Michael, it's going to be ok.
Michael: Mommy's gone.
Carly: Sonny --
Ric: It's all right. It's all right.
Ric: Easy. Right there. Just relax. Just relax, ok?
Ric: Shh, shh --
Carly: Get away from me! No!
Ric: Welcome home.
Operator: We're responding to your call. Police units are on their way. Just hold on, we'll be right there. The police units --
Ric: Shh, shh, Carly.
Carly: No! No!
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Lydia: How much is it going to cost me?
Lucky: 500 bucks.
Luke: I'm returning that. Where do you want it?
Jason: The wedding's been postponed. It's going to happen, but just not tonight.
Sonny: Did you see somebody take mommy away?
Ric: Stop fighting. It's not good for the child.
Operator: If you can hear me, help is on the way.
