>> Previously on "General Hospital" --
Skye: I am going to expose Alexis, whether you like it or not.
Carly: Call someone! Elizabeth, go!
Elizabeth: Ok. Oh.
Carly: Elizabeth --
Agent Brown: We have a deal.
Faith: I am in love with Ric!
Jason: Do you believe me now? About Ric?
Sonny: He has her. We're going to get Carly back.
Elizabeth: Carly -- Carly --
Skye: I had the most amazing day.
Skye: Yeah. I made a deal with Scott Baldwin.
A.J.: Oh, no, Skye, what have you done now?
Skye: Oh, no, no, no, this isn't about me, except for the benefits that I stand to get. Can you say "huge"?
A.J.: Stop milking me. Bring it.
Skye: Ok. I got Scott to agree to nail Alexis for murder one if I can get her to admit that she faked the D.I.D.
A.J.: You're dreaming.
Skye: Well, thanks for the vote of confidence.
A.J.: Hey, I know how much you love Kristina and how desperately you want to get her away from Alexis. And even if you're right about the D.I.D, Alexis is way too clever to let her guard down, especially if you're anywhere around.
Skye: Hmm. Well, then I guess Iíll have to focus on Dobson.
A.J.: Dobson? What does -- what does he have to do with this?
Skye: Oh, I haven't even told you the best part. A.J., hold on to your hat because what Iím about to tell you is going to send you reeling.
Ned: Hi. Thank you for coming so quickly.
Alexis: Is everything all right with Kristina?
Ned: Oh, she's fine. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to alarm you.
Alexis: I just didn't know what to think. You left a message saying something about Kristinaís well-being, so --
Ned: Yeah. No, no, she's fine, she's fine. Here, can we sit down?
Alexis: Well -- why? What is going on?
Ned: Humor me. Sit down. Would you like something to drink?
Alexis: No, no, thank you. I just want you to tell me what's going on.
Ned: Ok. Well, I was just thinking that, you know, now is the time to probably discuss Kristinaís future, and I wanted to do it away from all the craziness at the house.
Alexis: Ok. What did you want to discuss?
Ned: Well, I want to discuss joint custody. I think it's time we start working out an agreement.
Alexis: Have you completely gone insane?
Georgie: You lying little snake!
Maxie: Uh, me?
Georgie: I don't see anyone else who's double-crossed me lately. How long did you wait until you told Mac I left with Dillon? 20 minutes? 10? Maxie, what happened to 24 hours?
Maxie: Ok, you know what, Georgie? You never told me that you were taking off on a stolen bike.
Georgie: Feel real good about yourself, Maxie. Because of you and your big mouth, Dillonís in jail.
Ric: Elizabeth -- Elizabeth, can you hear me? It's -- it's Ric. You're -- you're in the hospital, honey.
Elizabeth: Carly --
Ric: Shh. Don't -- you had a -- you had a dream. You had a nightmare. You were calling out in the middle -- in your sleep. It's ok. It's ok.
Ric: Why don't you close your eyes and get some rest, all right? We'll talk about it. That's it. I'm begging you, sweetheart, forget about Carly.
Carly: I'm here, Sonny. I'm so close, you have no idea.
Jason: Do you see something?
Sonny: No, I just -- I got a feeling.
Jason: What kind?
Sonny: I feel Carly.
Carly: That's right. Oh, I'm right here. Don't give up on me. Come find me.
A.J.: All right, just back up, back up. Dobson and Alice were kissing?
Skye: Well, it was more like Alice was kissing. Dobson was just kind of petrified.
A.J.: Yeah, who can blame him, really?
Skye: Oh, not for the reason you think. Although, I don't know. Who can really tell with that weirdo?
A.J.: Ok, so what happened?
Skye: Ok, ready?
Skye: So, Alice has Dobson in a hammerlock, right? Decades and decades of sexual frustration just bubbling out all over the place. And then Dobson jumps back in alarm or horror -- I don't know, whatever it was -- leaving his mustache planted squarely on Aliceís face.
Skye: Revealing none other than -- ta-da.
A.J.: Who? Who?
Skye: Oh, take a wild guess. Go ahead.
A.J.: Uh --
Skye: No, no, no. You know what? I want to tell you. Alexis.
A.J.: Is Dobson?
A.J.: You're kidding me.
Skye: No, can you believe it? She's been passing herself off as a man in this very house.
A.J.: I'll be damned. I mean -- Skye, she had us all fooled.
Skye: I know.
A.J.: Faking a personality that happens to be your sister was like falling off a log.
Skye: Thank you.
Skye: Oh, wait till you hear this.
A.J.: There's more?
Skye: Oh, icing on the cake.
Skye: After an otherwise dreadful day, I hit the mother lode -- or so to speak.
Skye: I heard Cameron and Alexis talking, right? She came right out and said it. Alexis said she faked the D.I.D. to beat the murder rap.
A.J.: I don't suppose the good doctor was shocked.
Skye: Oh, please. The man is besotted. He's been helping her all along.
A.J.: You have been a busy little bee. So, what other juicy little tidbits do you have for me, huh? Is Alice working for the C.I.A.? Reggie -- was he abducted by aliens? Come on.
Skye: You know what? I wouldn't even blink an eye.
A.J.: This is amazing, you know? Amazing.
Skye: What it is is unconscionable, A.J. Alexis feels justified in whatever crazy behavior she can come up with as long as she invokes motherhood as an excuse. I mean, really, I don't know what's going to happen to that poor little girl, you know. There she'll be someday, maybe in a little playground fight, or some kid will look at her sideways, and here comes Alexis, swooping down like the wrath of God. Who knows what havoc she'll wreak?
A.J.: And we couldn't have that, now, could we?
Skye: Absolutely not. It would be irresponsible of me to let Kristinaís childhood to become another act in Alexis Davis' sideshow of freaks. No, this has to end. And Dobson is the key.
Ned: Then why are you acting like the idea of joint custody is something new?
Alexis: Because it is to me. I've certainly never discussed this as any viable possibility. Why would I agree to give up half the time with my daughter?
Ned: So that your daughter's father could also have equal time?
Alexis: Ned, do I need to remind you that you are not Kristinaís father? Now, this is beginning to look more and more like some sort of delusional obsession with you.
Ned: Delusional? Delusional? As in something that I just, what, made up in my head, as opposed to the fact that I have been taking care of this little girl for the last six months of her life?
Alexis: Which is, and was always meant to be, temporary. I'll tell you what. You look at this as childcare. If you want, you can send me a bill.
Ned: Alexis, listen to me. You realize that you're being completely unreasonable?
Alexis: Yes, I know, I'm always unreasonable. Good old unreasonable Alexis. All I ever wanted was to be able to take my daughter home and be her mother. And for a myriad of reasons, that has been impossible. So you can call me unreasonable, you can call me irrational, you can call me freaking out of my mind, but I gave birth to Kristina. She's mine. You need to stop projecting your mistakes with Brooke Lynn onto her. My daughter is not your path to redemption.
Ned: See, you're wrong. You're wrong on so many levels, I don't even know where to begin. So let's just stick to what's important, and that is Kristina is my daughter in every way that matters. And no one is going to take her away from me -- not even you.
Maxie: Dillon's in jail because he stole Kyleís bike, Georgie. All Kyle did was report it. I mean, you can't blame us because Dillonís out of control.
Georgie: Unbelievable. You open your mouth and Kyleís words come out. Maxie, you're pathetic. How long are you going to let this guy play you for a sucker?
Kyle: How was your first time in a motel room, Georgie? Did Dillon deliver, or was he just another wimp like Lucas?
Scott: Hey, Ric, how's she doing?
Ric: Pulmonary embolism. Came out of nowhere.
Scott: That's tough when that happens.
Ric: My wife is beautiful, isn't she? I mean, like this, just lying there all still.
Scott: Listen, I got the bug out of your house that Jason put there.
Scott: But Sonny's there. He wanted to hang around and wait for you.
Ric: My brother's at my house?
Sonny: I know there's nothing here that indicates Carly was ever in this house, but I'm getting a -- I'm getting a feeling, and I know it sounds crazy
Jason: Not to me. And it wouldn't to Carly, either.
Carly: You're right. You can feel me because we're connected. I'm right here.
Sonny: I don't know, maybe I'm losing it again. Oh, man. Anybody would if they had to live with Faith. I hate that tramp. The fact that she's living in my wife's house is wrong.
Jason: You're just keeping your end of the deal with the feds.
Sonny: Yeah, that's it. I know that, but what has it gotten me? Faith in my face, no sign of Carly. What happened to the fancy forensics? All the technology they were going to have to find my wife?
Carly: I knew it. I knew you'd never forget me and move on to Faith, of all people. You're my heart, and Iím yours.
Jason: We're going to find Carly, and we're not going to stop until we do.
Sonny: We can't because Carly is alive. And she's waiting, and she's willing me to find her. And that's what I'm going to do, even if I have to walk through fire. I'm going to stay here, wait for Ric, ok?
Jason: Good, you can work him for some information.
Sonny: Ric is going to lead us to Carly, one way or the other.
Jason: All right, I'll clear out. He'll shut down if Iím here.
Sonny: All right.
Courtney: Guess who.
Jason: Hey, how you doing?
Courtney: That's why Iím calling. Look, I don't want you to alarm Sonny. God knows he has enough on his mind. But, Jason, there's a serious problem on this island.
Carly: I'm right here, Sonny. Don't give up. I am alive, and I am strong, and I am fighting for our child. And I swear, if you can't find me, I will find my way home to you -- somehow.
Skye: Done. Judge Farmer will be here for dinner Friday night. Of course, Dobson will be serving. And then we'll wait for the opportune moment when we can reveal Dobson for the charade that she is.
A.J.: Mm-hmm. It's going to be a lot of fun. But don't lose sight of the big picture. The important thing here is to make Alexis mad enough and frustrated enough to admit that she faked the D.I.D. in front of the judge, ok?
Skye: Have you noticed how neurotic Alexis is? I just walk into a room and the woman gets uptight. She hates me. All I have to do is use that. I may even -- I may even bring Kristina down and show the judge what a wonderful bond we share.
A.J.: That's cold. Using a woman's own child against her.
Skye: Look, it's a necessary means to an end, ok? Ultimately, I am protecting that little girl.
A.J.: She's lucky to have you.
Skye: You mean that.
A.J.: When this is all over, you're going to make a great mother.
Alexis: You don't want to have this battle with me, Ned.
Ned: You're right, I donít. I don't want to fight about this, but I'm not going to let you trample all over my rights. Being a parent is about more than just blood, ok? I have loved this child before she was even born. And I love her more now. I mean, I've taken care of her.
Alexis: By taking care of her, does that mean you use her to play house with that thing you call a girlfriend? Because that's grounds for calling social services.
Ned: Look, I am not going to sit here and have a discussion about Skye because she has been wonderful to Kristina. She has been a constant in her life, which is more than I can say for you. For God's sake, Alexis, you act as if this whole situation is everyone's fault but your own. Do I really need to remind you that killing Alcazar is what made you lose Kristina in the first place?
Alexis: Yes, I know, and you've taken advantage of that and exploited that at every turn. You are not going to appropriate my daughter so you and that thing can have an instant family. I'm cutting you both out of her life as soon as possible.
Ned: See, I wouldn't do that. Don't do that. You're not going to want to do that.
Alexis: Too late. I already have a meeting with judge Farmer to establish competency. This is going to stop.
Ned: I'm asking you -- I am begging you to reconsider. You'll be snatching Kristina from the only home she's ever known, from people who love her.
Alexis: I'll tell you what. If you and Skye are so desperate to have a child, make one of your own. As far as the rest of this nest of vipers that you call a family, my daughter will clearly be much better without them.
Ned: Alexis, whether you like it or not, Kristina has made attachments to us.
Alexis: She'll get over it. Start preparing yourself to say goodbye.
Maxie: Have you completely lost it, Georgie? You just hit Kyle. What are you thinking?
Kyle: Obviously, Georgie's being influenced by her new boyfriend, the criminal.
Georgie: Maxie, if you're expecting an apology, forget it. If you had any self-respect whatsoever, you would have slapped him a long time ago. He's a pig. He's not worth the skin he's wasting. And he's here at Kellyís probably whipping you into some sick game while Dillon -- Dillon rots in jail.
Maxie: Yeah, well, you know what, Georgie? You're just going to have to live with it. And by the way, you're not allowed to see Dillon. And in case you've forgotten in all this excitement, you and I have been exiled to candy striper help for the rest of the summer.
Georgie: If Mac thinks that Iím going to just slap on some dumb uniform and fall in line like a good little soldier, he's got another think coming. And I intend to see Dillon, whether I'm allowed to or not.
Maxie: I should go after her. She's completely over the top.
Kyle: Forget Georgie. You need to be that good little soldier.
Maxie: What do you mean?
Kyle: Go sign up for your summer job, get in good with the supervisor.
Maxie: Hello? Who are you, and what have you done with the real Kyle?
Kyle: Want some advice from the master? Everybody knows I get away with murder. You know why? My parents think I walk on water, that I wouldn't do anything wrong. Once you have them in that mindset, you're home free, especially when Georgieís conveniently providing a distraction by flipping out. You got to use that stuff.
Maxie: I get where you're going. Maxie Jones, cheerfully reporting for duty.
Kyle: Having seen the error of her ways, you're not a problem anymore. And with Mac focusing on Georgie, you can do whatever you want.
Audrey: My dear, darling girl. Oh, I am so sorry this happened. Especially now. Because, you see, I've always prayed that you would find the kind of love and stability I had with Steve, and now, just as you found it -- well, it doesn't matter. I mean, who knows better how strong and resilient you are? I've watched you bounce back from so many things, that indomitable spirit still intact. So you're going to come back from this, too, darling. But, Elizabeth -- Elizabeth, you must fight hard. Fight with everything you've got. Darling, you have a husband -- and a grandmother -- who needs you here so very much.
Ric: Scott Baldwin said that you were here. Why?
Sonny: Do you really have to ask? The bug's gone, if that eases your mind.
Ric: Well, that bug and getting Jason off my back mattered a lot more earlier today. But after what happened to my wife, I really don't care about that much.
Sonny: So, what exactly did happen?
Carly: Elizabeth found me and all of Ric's lies were exposed.
Ric: A pulmonary embolism. It just came out of nowhere.
Carly: Not out of nowhere, Ric. That was you.
Ric: You know, I'm not a good man. I know that. But everything I did from the day that Elizabeth agreed to marry me was try to make her happy, you know, to give her what she wanted -- a life full of love and trust that -- a family. And we were on our way, you know? A few bumps in the road. All the darkness was starting to move out. Yeah, like a thunderstorm at the end of summer on the vineyard. There was light. Now, just like that, there's -- there's no light anymore in the world.
Sonny: So what happened? I mean, why are you talking about Elizabeth as if she's already dead?
Carly: Because she will be. She saw me, and now Ricís going to have to kill her.
Ric: Yeah, you're -- you're right. You're right. What I am saying? I mean, she's -- she's a fighter. She's not going to want to lose our life any more than I will. She'll heal, you know? She'll -- she'll come back. It's not over. It can't be.
Sonny: When you love a woman like that, you never give up. No matter how hopeless it looks, you just -- you just keep on fighting. Even if you have to go to hell and back -- whatever it takes -- to bring her back to you. Tell Elizabeth my thoughts are with her.
Carly: No, Sonny, don't go.
Jason: Courtney. How is he?
Courtney: Oh, it takes a while to fall asleep. He's still having really bad nightmares. Hi.
Jason: Oh, I've missed you so much.
Courtney: Yeah, every time you called, I had to stop myself from telling you how badly I wanted to come home.
Jason: It helps, knowing that Michaelís away from the worst of it and you're staying here to take care of him.
Courtney: Yeah. Leticia and I can only do so much. I mean, Michaelís ok during the day, you know? I mean, he likes to swim and go on the boat. And he's still young enough to build sandcastles. But, I mean, he never forgets that Carly's gone. Jason, he's afraid to fall asleep at night.
Jason: Yeah, I don't blame him for being scared. I mean, how -- how can you believe in anything good when some sick bastard takes your mother away right in front of you?
Courtney: Michael trusts you and his father to make this right. I trust you, too. Will you carry Michael to bed? I was afraid Iíd wake him up.
Audrey: Well, I have to go, my darling. But I won't be far. Now you just rest.
Faith: You know, I almost feel sorry for you, little girl. I told you you were out of your league with Ric. But did you listen? No. Because you think you know everything. Look at you now.
Faith: Well, you don't have to worry. You can go in peace. I'll take care of Ric. I'll pick up right where you left off. And I can make him happier than you ever could. Because I know how to love him. I understand him. And I can give him everything that he needs. You know Iím the one that should have been with him all along. And once again, the universe rights itself.
Skye: What's wrong?
Ned: I've just come from a meeting with Alexis. Need I say more?
Skye: Well, I guess I couldn't ask for a better segue.
Ned: Now what?
Skye: I realize you're a champion of fair play and all that. It's actually one of the things I like about you. But I've come up with a plan. It's underhanded, mean-spirited, and deceitful. But the good news is it will give you full custody of Kristina and it'll get Alexis out of both your lives for good. What do you say?
Ned: Let's hear it.
Jason: I told Leticia just to call us if he had a nightmare.
Courtney: They're awful. Michael wakes up screaming and calling for Carly. I try to hold him and rock him back to sleep, and he keeps asking, "where's mommy?" Over and over.
Jason: I know -- I know you can't give him an answer. In some ways, it's got to be a lot harder than anything.
Courtney: Yeah, I guess. Michael isn't any better at waiting than I am. You know, Carly tried to teach me. She told me to always stay patient. Yeah. And concentrate on the small things and never jump in with a plan that will make everything worse. I know.
Jason: Carly never does that.
Courtney: Yeah. No, I guess she was just trying to give me the benefit of her hard-won experience. And neither one of us thought Iíd be waiting to hear what happened to her.
Jason: Hey, Carlyís going to be ok. She's going to hold on until we find her. She will.
Carly: You look like hell. Is guilt finally getting to you?
Ric: Donít. Don't start, ok? I'm not in the mood.
Carly: No, I understand why, since you're responsible for what happened to Elizabeth tonight.
Ric: Eat your dinner.
Carly: Do you know that pulmonary embolisms can be a direct result of hormones? Which you've been --
Ric: Shut up!
Carly: Feeding to Elizabeth --
Ric: Shut up!
Carly: All this time! You know, I find it so ironic, Ric. Here you love her so much, and you devise this extraordinary plan to give her my child, and now, because of your genius, she may die.
Faith: What are you doing? Don't manhandle me. I was adjusting her pillow. She looked uncomfortable.
Sonny: You were adjusting her pillow, huh?
Sonny: By putting it over her face? You have a hell of a way of seducing a man. Like trying to kill his wife and coming on to his brother.
Faith: Oh, please, don't flatter yourself. I only came on to you to spice up a really dreary job. Living with you is like trying to have a picnic on Siberian Tundra.
Sonny: Really? Well, I guess I'm not inspired.
Faith: Well, you still have to keep your end of the bargain, don't you?
Sonny: You know what? Forget the deal. You got to listen to me. You, no doubt, are the woman that Ric deserves. Ok? But I got nothing to do with that. You're going to stay away from Elizabeth. All right? Her sudden, unexplained death is not something you want to be part of. Do you get what I'm saying?
Sonny: You get it? Yeah, good. Take off.
Sonny: Hey. Elizabeth. I don't know if you can hear me or not. But what put you here? Is there something going on in that house?
Audrey: I can't tell you how pleased I am pleased that you and Georgie will be volunteering this summer.
Maxie: Yeah, I can't wait to get started.
Audrey: Thank you.
Maxie: You've probably already heard that Iíve been making some mistakes lately.
Audrey: Well, young people do.
Maxie: Yeah, I'm just hoping that getting out of myself and focusing on helping other people is the way to get me back on track.
Zach: Yo, Kyle.
Kyle: Yeah, let me give you a call back. What's up, Zach?
Zach: Are you as bummed as I am?
Kyle: What up?
Zach: This summer has been so dry. I can't buy a buzz anywhere.
Kyle: Dry season's almost over, my friend. We're going to be getting high and staying there any day now.
Zach: Yeah? How?
Kyle: Maxie's totally into me, right?
Zach: Big time.
Kyle: She's signing up as a candy striper as we speak.
Zach: So --
Kyle: So where do candy stripers work?
Kyle: And what can you get at hospitals?
Skye: Precious. Oh, we need to get somebody to sleep soon, don't we, huh? We're just waiting for your little blanket. As soon as nasty old Dobson comes back with it, then we can get you to bed, huh? Oh, just in time. Give me that, would you? Thank you. Ned, we'll see you upstairs in about 10 minutes?
Ned: Yeah, I'll be up. Dobson?
Alexis: [British accent] Yes, Sir?
Ned: I need to ask you something. I know you have issues with Skye, but you must see just how wonderful she is with Kristina.
Alexis: I find it shamefully inappropriate that she's allowed to spend more time with Kristina than the child's own mother.
Ned: But there's a reason. You see, Kristinaís mother is deeply disturbed.
Alexis: So everyone says, Sir.
Ned: No, you see, Alexis killed a man, and she's never shown one ounce of remorse. She has ice running through her veins. And don't be fooled into thinking that she loves Kristina. She considers this child nothing more than her personal property. On the other hand, Skye genuinely wants what's best for this child.
Courtney: Do you think that we'd be together if it weren't for Carly playing matchmaker?
Courtney: So do I. But don't tell Carly that. She likes to take credit for everything.
Jason: Yeah, I know. You remember that first night that you had me over for dinner? And you spilled whatever on me, you know? Carly -- you know, she kept giving me this lecture on how it was a date and do this and do that. And I didn't want to hear about it. Because I was trying not to let myself care about you. Trying not to let you matter more than anything. So I waited to tell you how I felt. I waited to believe it was real. I was fighting myself. And it was wrong. It was just a waste of time. Because anything can happen at any time. And what matters is who you love and if you say it and if you show it. And I love you.
Ric: The hell with you. I love Elizabeth.
Carly: Doesn't matter. Because when Elizabeth wakes up, she is going to go to the cops. She's going to tell them. They're going to come here, they're going to find me, they're going to arrest you -- if Sonny doesn't kill you first. Don't you realize that this is out of control, Ric, and Elizabeth is paying the price?
Ric: Stop saying that.
Carly: You have to decide, Ric -- what is more important, revenge on Sonny or saving Elizabethís life?
Sonny: You and I used to be friends, Elizabeth. You trusted me. And then you hooked up with Ric. Just got mixed up with the wrong guy this time. Well, maybe I shouldn't say that so easily because everybody tells Carly the same thing about me. She didn't get herself kidnapped. Somebody took her to hurt me.
Sonny: Hey, hey, hey. Do you know who took -- do you know who took Carly?
Elizabeth: Carly --
Sonny: Yeah, Carly. You know what happened to her, huh?
Elizabeth: Carly --
Sonny: Listen. Listen to me. Look at me, look at me. Did Ric -- did Ric take her?
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Emily: I'd like to -- to tell my story.
Ned: You left Dillon in jail?
Scott: Quartermaine in a cage -- just the way I like them, punk.
Michael: I remembered more things about Ric taking mommy.
Ric: Why did you have to find out? What am I supposed to do now, Elizabeth?
