>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Dillon: How long am I going to be stuck here?
Tracy: I know you don't believe this right now, but it's going to be good for you.
Stefan: Stay away from Nikolas. I won't tell you again.
Elizabeth: He had nothing to do with Carly's disappearance. He was with me the entire night.
Ric: Come here. Be nice.
Jason: We can't find Carly, not a trace.
Sonny: I'm going to find Mom, I promise.
Zander: Every time I ask you what is going on with Emily, you tell me to believe in her, to have patience.
Monica: I know that you love Emily, Zander.
Zander: Yeah, but so does Nikolas, obviously.
Monica: And we all know they're friends.
Zander: But you can't see them in love?
Monica: She needs room right now.
Monica: Oh, if it were my choice, I would tell you, Zander.
Zander: Just say it.
Emily: You want to know what's going on? I'll tell you.
Zander: All right. The truth this time. Not some excuse that sounds like a lie.
Emily: Um -- Nikolas and I are getting married.
Lydia: Leaving so early?
Nikolas: Yes, I have a very long day. So enjoy your morning.
Lydia: Well, would you accept an apology?
Nikolas: Accepted. Thank you.
Lydia: I have been unspeakably rude.
Nikolas: No problem.
Lydia: But for the record, the idea of pushing us together -- that was Stefan.
Nikolas: Well, then you should discuss it with him.
Lydia: Well, he seems to think that we would be a brilliant match. Can you imagine? Anyway, I never should have allowed him into bullying me into throwing myself at you, and I just --
Nikolas: Yeah, well, the trip hasn't been a complete waste of time. You seem to enjoy the locals.
Lydia: How was I supposed to know some guy named Lucky would turn out to be your brother?
Nikolas: Enjoy the rest of your visit, Lydia.
Lydia: You know, you think for yourself, and I really admire that, even if Stefan doesnít.
Nikolas: Yeah, well, my uncle and I will sort out our differences. We always do.
Lydia: And I will try to stay out of your way, no matter how hard he shoves me at you.
Nikolas: That sounds fine.
Lydia: So would you take these to Emily? Just consider them a peace offering?
Nikolas: Of course. Thank you.
Stefan: I don't appreciate your new approach.
Lydia: Well, of course you donít. But maybe Nikolas will.
Gia: What have you done with my brother?
Maxie: You told me that his mom got him out of it.
Mac: Dillon's lucky he got away with community service.
Georgie: Yeah, but is the little jacket really necessary?
Mac: You run down parking meters with your cousin's hummer, you deal with the fashion consequences.
Georgie: You think he wants some breakfast or something?
Mac: Don't even think about it.
Jason: Where's Carly?
Faith: I have no idea!
Jason: Where is she?
Faith: Maybe she got tired of playing the perfect little wifey and bailed.
Jason: No, she's kidnapped. And if you know anything, this is your last chance to tell me.
Sonny: Hey! Whoa!
Sonny: It's ok, buddy.
Sonny: It's ok. Hey, Iím here. You have a dream? Huh? About mommy? Maybe you remember what happened?
Ric: You bought a pregnancy test?
Elizabeth: These new ones are absolutely amazing.
Ric: You took it already?
Elizabeth: Mm-hmm. I know it's silly, and of course it was negative because it was too early to tell, but, you know --
Ric: No, I just -- I don't want you to put pressure on yourself.
Elizabeth: I'm not. Just the more I think about it, the more I want us to have a baby.
(Carly watching on panic room monitor)
Carly: Yeah? Well, you can't have mine.
Faith: Why would I kidnap Carly?
Jason: For leverage against Sonny.
Faith: Yeah, well, last time I messed with Sonny, I almost died, remember? Look, I don't know anything about this, ok? If I knew, I would tell you.
Jason: That better be true.
Faith: Why would I get involved with a stunt like this, huh? What would it get me but killed?
Jason: If you hear anything, you call me or Sonny.
Faith: Yes. Absolutely.
Emily: I shouldn't have -- I shouldn't have told you this way. I'm sorry. I didn't expect to see you.
Zander: And now you want to make sure I don't come back, is that it? You didn't have any idea about this either, did you?
Monica: No. No, I didn't.
Emily: But you understand, right?
Monica: To some extent.
Emily: Nikolas and I have -- have loved each other for a long time, and it took us a while to realize how close we really are. But now --
Emily: Nothing else makes sense.
Nikolas: I apologize for barging in, but no one answered the door.
Monica: Yeah, we're having a little problem with the butler.
Emily: Yeah, I didn't expect to see you.
Zander: So Emily just told me the big news.
Scott: Listen, I promised my constituents I was going to clean up the police department, and that's what Iím doing.
Gia: Yeah, my brother's not a dirty cop.
Scott: Why did he leave town so quickly?
Gia: You gave him 24 hours to get out of town before you dragged him into this corruption scandal you created out of nothing.
Scott: I gave him a chance to take another job.
Gia: In Portland, Oregon?
Scott: I saved his career.
Gia: He was going to turn you in, wasn't he? This whole corruption scandal was just a smokescreen?
Scott: Your brother has a history of harassment. He refused to follow procedure many times.
Gia: That's a bald-faced lie.
Scott: I saved him and the department a major investigation.
Gia: No, you needed a scapegoat and you found one.
Scott: You know, I hear Portlandís really nice this time of year, very little rain.
Gia: You couldn't deal with my brother? Fine, you can deal with me, Scott.
Scott: Hello? Oh, hey, listen, does that model come in red? Oh, I got to take this.
Scott: Yeah, ok, what I need is -- yeah, good. Ok.
Mac: So, how were finals? Do I need to be worried? What looks good for breakfast?
Maxie: Um -- just the coffee for me.
Mac: You don't drink coffee.
Georgie: Since when?
Mac: Not on my tab.
Maxie: Ok, fine. Then Iím not hungry.
Georgie: Look, Maxie's the original coffee fiend. If we didn't stop by here at least once or twice a day, she couldn't function.
Mac: You know, I want Felicia to come home, too.
Maxie: Why? It's not like it's the first time that she's dumped us.
Mac: Mariah needs her.
Georgie: And what about us?
Mac: Come on, we've been through this before. We can do it again. But not the way we're doing it -- sex on the Internet, a drug overdose, Georgie renting a hotel room on prom night. You're both completely out of control.
Maxie: You know what, we've had this conversation before, Mac.
Mac: You're right. You're right, I don't have time for it. And neither do you. So you know what? Here. You know what those are? Those are the want-ads. You read it, you call the number, and you find yourself a summer job. And if you can't find one, I'll find a summer job for you.
Maxie: No, why should I have to work all the time?
Mac: Because you can't seem to find anything better to do, and you need to make some new friends. You know, you're done running with the popular kids.
Maxie: No, you know what, you can't decide who Iím going to hang out with.
Mac: And as for you, forget Dillon Quartermaine. He is nothing but trouble. You've got an excellent mind, Georgie. Use it. Any questions? Good, good, because I'm up to my ears at work, all right? So, enjoy your breakfast, drink all your milk, and start finishing your resumes. The party's over.
Maxie and Georgie: This is all your fault!
Sonny: Everybody has bad dreams, Michael. I have bad dreams that wake me up at night. But they're not real. But you know something? Sometimes when you talk about your dreams, they go away.
Courtney: Hey, maybe if you tell us what the dream, it won't seem so scary.
Sonny: Listen, you think maybe when you dream about mommy, right, maybe you saw something in your dream, something that happened to her?
Michael: Mommy --
Sonny: Ok, you know what? It's all right, it's all right. I promise you that Iím -- I'm going to take care of this, ok?
Courtney: Yeah, your daddy's really good at that, Michael.
Sonny: I know what it's like to wake up confused and feel all locked up inside yourself, but you know something? You're going to do this. You're going to remember. Then everything's going to be great, ok? Ok? All right, come on. Make sure he eats breakfast. And I am sending Marco to the bakery. I don't want him eating this hospital slop.
Courtney: Yeah, neither do I. I'll wait with him.
Sonny: All right. Thank you.
Jason: How is he?
Sonny: Oh, you know, about the same. You find out anything?
Jason: No, Faith doesn't know anything. The five families aren't involved.
Sonny: What about Alcazar? Any word?
Jason: Not that Iíve heard. There's nothing. Nothing on the streets. We're running out of options.
Sonny: Still thinking about the cops?
Jason: Right now?
Jason: As much as I hate to say it, I think they're Carlyís best chance.
Sonny: Well, I'll do what I have to do to -- to find her.
Ric: Well, we'll have a baby when the time is right.
Elizabeth: I know you want a baby as badly as I do.
Ric: I just don't want you to disappoint yourself. You know, why would you take a pregnancy test so soon?
Elizabeth: I don't know. Just hoping against hope, I guess?
Ric: I don't want you to do that to yourself.
Elizabeth: Something else is bothering you, isn't it?
Ric: No, no, everything's fine.
Elizabeth: This is about Sonny. Honey, you have to know he can't think that you took Carly. He came, searched the house, there was no Carly.
Ric: I don't want to focus on Sonny anymore and his paranoia. I want to -- I want to focus on us, on our lives.
Elizabeth: Our family?
Ric: Yeah, absolutely. I just -- I don't want to pressure you.
(Carly watching monitors from panic room)
Carly: Oh, Elizabeth, you are in for a rude awakening once I get out of here and you find out you're married to a psychopath.
Ric: I need for you to trust that things are going to work out they way they were meant to be. As long as we have each other, we can deal with anything, right?
Elizabeth: Hey, we're partners. That's what being married is all about.
Ric: Right. How'd I get so lucky to marry you, huh?
Elizabeth: I have no idea. I have to go to the hospital and see my grandmother, ok?
Ric: Ok, you know where Iíll be.
Elizabeth: Ok. Love you.
Ric: I love you more.
Ric: (to Carly) Look flushed. You're up to something.
Emily: I just told them about our engagement.
Monica: You seem almost as surprised as I was.
Nikolas: You know, I knew you wouldn't be able to keep it a secret until the formal announcement.
Zander: You're marrying Emily and all you care about is a formal announcement?
Emily: I promised him that I would wait to tell. I'm so sorry.
Nikolas: No, no, don't be. I understand perfectly why you had to say something. Look, things have moved along quickly. I'm sorry you had to find out this way.
Zander: I can tell you're all torn up about it. Bye, Em. Have a great life.
Monica: Go after him. Emily --
[door opens and slams]
Emily: Zander has to let go. Now it'll be easier.
Monica: By hurting him, you're just hurting yourself. How did you let her talk you into this?
Emily: Look, Nikolas is trying to help, Mom.
Monica: What, by helping Emily perpetrate a lie?
Nikolas: Emily asked for my support and Iím happy to give her whatever she needs.
Emily: Why won't you understand this, Mom? I have to deal with this in my own way.
Monica: And your own way is to undercut your treatment and only cause yourself stress? What is going on, Emily? You've decided that your cancer allows you to lie, to inflict pain? Are you that desperate? Are you that frightened?
Emily: Look, you had breast cancer. You know how hard this is.
Monica: Yes, I do. I do. And that's why I said I would go along with it for just so long, but not this kind of charade. I'm not going to be the mother to the bride. You're going to make yourself sicker, and I will not be a part of it, Emily.
Emily: Oh. Do you want out?
Nikolas: If it's hurting you, yes.
Emily: You aren't. I can't do this without you. And I wish I could.
Nikolas: Come here. Look, helping you helps me, ok? So if you need us to get married, then that's what we'll do.
Georgie: You missed a spot.
Dillon: Your dad walked away, and so now you're speaking to me, right?
Dillon: Well, I've got nothing to say.
Georgie: You're different than I thought.
Dillon: I hate to break this to you, but first impressions are usually wrong. I mean, I was obviously wrong about you, too, right?
Georgie: You're mad all the time, and I think I know why.
Maxie: Go away.
Kyle: Can we start over?
Maxie: Why, did you make another bet?
Kyle: I feel terrible.
Maxie: Why don't you just go stand on the counter and, you know, tell the whole world Iím a slut? It'd make things a whole lot easier.
Kyle: You're not. It was all my fault. And about prom? I wanted to go with you.
Maxie: What, do you just, like, get a thrill out of lying to me or something?
Kyle: Your dad came to school that day, right after I asked you.
Maxie: No, he didnít.
Kyle: He called me out of class, slammed me against the lockers, told me he'd send me to prison if I even looked at you. Maxie, he made me dump you.
Scott: I don't like being summoned. What do you want?
Sonny: I appreciate you being here.
Scott: Who'd you put in the hospital? What does it have to do with me?
Sonny: Carly's missing. She was taken from the Queen of Angels right before Jason and Courtneyís wedding.
Scott: Well, maybe she couldn't stand the sight of her old flame marrying her sister-in-law and she just took off. Case closed.
Jason: That's not what happened.
Scott: Well, if you know what happened, why are you wasting my time?
Sonny: Michael saw everything. He's in his hospital room right now with Courtney. He can barely speak.
Scott: It's tough when kids get hurt by two-bit criminals. Hey, wait a minute. Maybe somebody hooked Carly on drugs and they're forcing her to strip to make a living.
Sonny: There was no sign of struggle. Nobody tried to contact us.
Scott: She's run off before.
Jason: No, not this time.
Scott: Why is this time any different?
Sonny: Because she was about to be in a wedding.
Scott: How nice for her.
Jason: She wouldn't have left on her own, all right?
Scott: What do you want me to do? Huh?
Sonny: I need your help.
Scott: What's in it for me?
Carly: Elizabeth's a fool. She always has been.
Ric: Well, she deserves a baby, and she's going to have one.
Carly: Not mine.
Ric: It only seems fair, since Sonny's the one who caused her miscarriage.
Carly: Elizabeth fell down the stairs because she insisted on meeting my husband after a rainstorm.
Ric: No, Sonny pushed Elizabeth the way he pushed our mother. He is psychotic.
Carly: No, Ric, that'd be you. But Elizabeth is just a little too naive to see it. I have a question, though, for you. What if she does get pregnant? Kind of messes up your plan, doesn't it?
Ric: I'm prepared for all contingencies.
Carly: You are so arrogant and so wrong.
Faith: So where'd you stash Carly?
Emily: You still think I should tell Zander the truth?
Nikolas: Look, I understand that you're trying to spare Zander pain. I mean
Emily: Maybe I'm being selfish.
Nikolas: My uncle devoted his entire life to sparing me pain.
Emily: And did horrible things in the process. Is that your point?
Nikolas: No. People don't always think clearly when they're in love, Emily. You know, they -- they tell lies, they make mistakes.
Emily: Strand themselves in blizzards?
Nikolas: Oh. You thinking about Elizabeth and Lucky?
Emily: Thanks. Saying their vows in an empty church.
Nikolas: Yeah. There you go.
Emily: Thanks. In the middle of the biggest snowstorm in 10 years. And then asking us to drive over and pick them up.
Nikolas: In an SUV that you wrangled from the staff at your family's hotel.
Emily: Because I finally convinced you that your Jag would never make it through the snow.
Nikolas: Hey, it might have.
Emily: We'd still be stuck in a ditch somewhere.
Nikolas: Would that be so wrong?
Emily: God. I had such a crush on you.
Nikolas: I had no idea what to do when you told me that.
Emily: That you were perfect -- as always. You know, maybe getting married is kind of like driving through the snow in that S.U.V. We'll be warm like we were that night, safe, together.
Nikolas: But we both know what the rules are, right?
Emily: And that we're friends, nothing more, nothing less?
Nikolas: Yeah, just -- you know, just driving through the snow.
Emily: Yeah, trying not to run anybody over.
Nikolas: Hoping for the best.
Gia: You heard about my brother?
Gia: He's in Portland.
Gia: Scott Baldwin. Who else? Basically ran my brother out of town.
Gia: What did Emily do this time?
Zander: Might not need to hear this.
Gia: Try me.
Zander: I was -- I was pretty shocked.
Gia: I can take it, Zander.
Zander: Emily and Nikolas are getting married.
Gia: That can't be right.
Zander: Was pretty surprised, too.
Gia: Who told you that?
Zander: And Nikolas, in front of her mother.
Zander: You know, let's get out of here.
Maxie: I can't believe Mac would do this.
Kyle: He practically threw me through a locker wall, said not to even look at you or he'd send me to Pentonville.
Maxie: And why didn't you tell me all this before?
Kyle: I wanted to at prom. Remember? I tried talking to you? But your dad is the police commissioner and I didn't want to get arrested. I wish now that I had.
Maxie: You want to stand up to Mac?
Kyle: Sure, but --
Maxie: Then take me out anyways.
Georgie: My mom left me, too. Not really, but that's the way it feels.
Dillon: Yeah, well, I'm used to my mom, but I'll get over it.
Georgie: She bailed you out and ditched you, Dillon. I was there. I saw it.
Dillon: Oh, come on.
Georgie: You don't know when she'll be back, maybe never.
Dillon: Well, I've been on my own for a long time.
Georgie: So have I. Not like you -- my mom still calls every day -- but -- but I still miss her.
Dillon: You get over that.
Georgie: It's not that easy, Dillon. And you know it.
Ric: So -- so why would I kidnap Carly?
Faith: Well, that's what Iíve been asking myself.
Ric: Sonny and Jason have been here already. My guess is they've gotten to you, as well. It's nonsense.
Faith: You really think Sonny's going to let you live after this?
Ric: I'm sure I don't know what you mean.
Faith: What good is revenge if you're dead?
Ric: I ended the vendetta, Faith. Nobody's going to wind up dead.
Faith: Give Carly back. Throw yourself on Sonny's mercy. Invoke your dear departed mother.
Ric: Ok, this is none of your business. Look, I don't have Carly and, to tell you the truth, I hope Sonny does find her.
Faith: Do you really think you can lie to me? After everything we've been through?
Ric: We worked together, Faith, that's all.
Faith: It was more than that, and you know it.
Ric: You need to get a life.
Faith: Jason Morgan is like a wild animal. A member of his pack is missing and he won't stop until he finds her.
Ric: Have you been watching a few nature shows on cable, Faith?
Faith: He can smell things, like fear. Wild animals can smell it a mile away. So, you'd better keep your eyes open because our wild animal will be back.
Carly: Come on. Come on, come on. Almost there. Do it. Damn!
Sonny: I want you to file a missing persons report.
Scott: Well, I have no proof that Carly is actually missing.
Jason: Probably wants a bribe.
Scott: Are trying to bribe me there, boys?
Sonny: I'm just -- Baldwin, Iím just asking you to do your job.
Scott: My job?
Scott: My job is to put criminals like you away. Cops can't do it, the courts won't, so I've made it my personal mission. I've asked you to cooperate with me before, but all I got was that blank stare. I knew the day would come where you would need my help. Here it is.
Sonny: Do you understand that my wife is pregnant, or do you not care?
Scott: Maybe she decided she didn't want to bring another kid into a life of crime. She got smart, left town.
Sonny: That's not what happened.
Scott: Well, Carly will show up. She always does. Maybe she'll swim in again. Maybe she'll hitchhike. Or maybe she'll have the baby in a trailer park.
Sonny: Maybe what? Maybe what? You want me to kill you, huh? Is that what you want?
Dillon: My four hours are up.
Georgie: Do you need to check out with someone?
Dillon: They'll figure it out.
Georgie: Can you believe some idiot left the keys in the ignition?
Dillon: What's the problem? I'm right here.
Georgie: It's your bike?
Dillon: What if it is?
Georgie: Seriously cool.
Dillon: You want a ride?
Georgie: Is it yours?
Dillon: You going to ask Macís permission?
Georgie: I don't care what Mac thinks.
Dillon: Then let's go.
Georgie: Ok. Uh-uh.
Maxie: We could sneak off to Greenfield.
Kyle: I know a couple of clubs there.
Maxie: You willing to risk it?
Kyle: We just won't get caught.
Maxie: I can't believe you're doing this.
Kyle: I'll call you.
Mac: You're still here.
Maxie: What, you spying on me?
Mac: Where's Georgie?
Maxie: I don't know. Was I supposed to be babysitting her?
Mac: Is there any chance we can have a normal conversation?
Maxie: After what you did to Kyle? I don't think so.
Stefan: That won't be a problem. No, no, the European markets have been volatile for some time. That's right. We'll get back to you.
Lydia: My plan didn't work.
Stefan: Oh. Why am I not surprised?
Lydia: No, Nikolas and Emily are getting married.
Stefan: Don't be ridiculous.
Lydia: Mm-hmm. I heard about it in a diner. A diner.
Stefan: You can hear anything in this town.
Lydia: No, it was some heartbroken gas station attendant who used to date Emily. He was going on and on about it.
Stefan: Don't worry. That marriage will never happen.
Emily: You know you're not obligated to escort me to every chemo session I have to go to.
Nikolas: Yeah, I know, but see, since we're getting married now, we have to do everything together.
Emily: I can't believe we're doing this.
Nikolas: Yeah, I know. You're going to be all right. I'll wait right here?
Emily: Yeah, thanks.
Nikolas: I'll be right here.
Emily: All right.
Jason: He's not worth it.
Scott: You know what? I'm not going to press charges because of your emotional state, but the next time either one of you touch me --
Sonny: Cops are always a bad idea.
Jason: You're right, you're right, especially that one. I should have known.
Sonny: I'll take care of this another way.
Courtney: Jason? Michael's remembering something. Come on.
Maxie: I don't need you to police my life, Mac.
Mac: Then make better choices.
Maxie: Yeah, right. Like you were going to send Kyle to Pentonville?
Mac: Don't push me, Maxie.
Maxie: You know, he's not the only one that messed up here.
Mac: Kyle has treated you with disrespect, whether you admit it or not. You deserve better, sweetheart. Look, until you can choose better for yourself, I'll make the choices for you.
Maxie: This is so unfair.
Mac: How's the job hunt going?
Maxie: You know, mom would let me go out with him.
Mac: She's not here. I am. And we're going to play this my way.
Georgie: That was so great.
Dillon: You like it?
Georgie: Yeah, we went so fast!
Dillon: Hey, why not?
Man: Did you see anybody around my bike?
Dillon: Hmm, no. No, not at all.
Man: Well, it's been running.
Georgie: We just got here.
Man: Whatever you did, don't do it again.
Georgie: Right. We have to go meet my sister.
Dillon: Thanks for the save.
Georgie: You stole that guy's bike?
Dillon: It's only a crime if you get caught.
Stefan: Nikolas? I know you know better than this.
Nikolas: Hello, Uncle.
Stefan: The rumors are flying. That alone may affect the Cassadine holdings.
Nikolas: I'm sure you mean to say "congratulations."
Emily: Thanks for waiting.
Nikolas: Hey. You ok?
Stefan: Just so we're clear, I forbid you to marry Emily Quartermaine.
Gia: So the rejects unite?
Zander: Looks that way.
Gia: Why didn't I keep blackmailing that little twit?
Zander: Why didn't I shove the prince off the docks when I had the chance?
Gia: At least Iím not in Portland, wherever that is.
Zander: Well, we could order a pizza.
Gia: I just ate. We can go into the city.
Zander: I'm broke.
Gia: We're a couple of losers, right?
Gia: Well, at least we got each other.
Faith: I knew you couldn't hold him.
Elizabeth: Leave me alone.
Faith: Ric is bored with you already. He's slipping around, disappearing at odd hours. Don't you at least wonder what he's up to?
Elizabeth: I'm busy, Faith.
Faith: Hmm. Your precious husband kidnapped Carly.
Courtney: Hey, hey, it's ok, sweetie.
Jason: Everything's ok, buddy. I'm not going to let anyone hurt you.
Courtney: Ok, tell us what you remember. Honey, what did you see?
Michael: I saw a man.
Ric: Ow! Oh, God! Carly! Carly, come back here!
Carly: Come on, come on!
Carly: Sonny! It's me!
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Zander: I can't be with you, Gia, if I'm still in love with Emily.
Nikolas: You either congratulate us or leave Port Charles immediately.
Skye: I hope you know a good lawyer.
Faith: Ric would have been just fine if you hadn't lost that baby.
Alcazar: How much does Michael remember?
Jason: The words will come out when you're ready.
