>> Previously on "General Hospital" --

Nikolas: It's over. That was the last kiss.

Courtney: My God, I'm pregnant.

Stefan: I found what we need to destroy Ned's credibility.

Woman: Didn't you used to be Eddie Maine?

Ned: In another life.

Nikolas: I don't love you. I have no intention of sleeping with you.

Carly: Sonny.

Sonny: We're going to get you out of here.

Lorenzo: Don't move.

Ned: Do I know you?

Woman: Eddie Maine Concert, Syracuse, 1994.

Ned: And?

Woman: You should be rotting in jail for what you did.

Skye: Who was that?

Emily: You're kidding, right?

Lydia: Not for a second.

Emily: Ok. So you will double Nikolas' donation if I convince him to sleep with you?

Lydia: Give me points for ingenuity. I've created a situation where everybody wins.

Emily: Do you realize that breast cancer killed my birth mother?

Lydia: That is so incredibly tragic. No wonder it's your pet charity. But that's why my suggestion is so perfect. You'll get a generous donation to a cause you really care about, Nikolas will get a little push in the right direction from a woman he respects, and I'll get Nikolas.

Emily: So what if I won't do it?

Lydia: Why wouldn't you? Raising money is the point of this entire event. You'll have a chance to bring in more money than anyone. Who knows, maybe they'll give you a little plaque or something. Wouldn't that be nice? You might become a fundraising Goddess. So, do we have an agreement?

Emily: What do you imagine me saying to Nikolas?

Lydia: I'm sure you'll think of something. Nikolas treats your every word as gospel. If Nikolas and I don't have a child, we'll both end up without a dime, so you'll be helping Nikolas, too.

Emily: Oh. You don't know much about the Quartermaines, do you?

Lydia: What does your family have to do with anything?

Emily: Oh, we're great manipulators.

Lydia: If you feel manipulated, I apologize.

Emily: Well, then you'll double the donation if I don't say anything to Nikolas?

Lydia: Do you know what my wedding night was like? Nikolas did not want to be in the same room with me, never mind the same bed. He told me I could sleep anywhere on the planet except with him. So you know where I ended up on my wedding night, on the night that I married a prince, on the night that I desperately tried to do the right thing, on the night that I --

Emily: Mm-hmm, ok, I get the idea. Where?

Lydia: The police station, with Lucky Spencer.

Emily: Ok, how did that happen?

Lydia: Did you realize that Lucky wanders the tunnels of Wyndemere frequently? It isn't funny. He's obsessed with that poor, unfortunate Summer, which really has nothing to do with me.

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Lydia: And I'm sure Nikolas wouldn't mind just signing me over to his brother.

Emily: Hi, Nikolas.

Nikolas: What's going on?

Lydia: Oh, just a little girl talk. Nothing that concerns you.

Emily: Lydia -- Lydia wants to double your donation to breast cancer research.

Nikolas: Oh, really?

Emily: If I talk you into going to bed with her.

Georgie: Dillon, what's wrong?

Dillon: Um -- I don't know, I just -- I think maybe that we shouldn't --

Georgie: No, it -- it's me, isn't it?

Lorenzo: Where are they?

Courtney: I don't know.

Lorenzo: Don't waste my time lying. I know Sonny and Jason are in Leon. They were in this room.

Courtney: Well, they must've left before I got here. They don't even know that I'm here.

Lorenzo: The element of surprise. Well, that could be useful. How did you find this place?

Courtney: Like, I never should've come. And when my brother and Jason find out that I'm here, they're going to be furious.

Lorenzo: Well, then you expect them to show up.

Courtney: I have no idea if they're going to come back.

Lorenzo: Well, why don't we wait together and find out.

Sonny: We're going to get you out of here, ok?

Ric: Where are the guards?

Carly: What is he doing here?

Jason: Something's wrong. The place is deserted. There's no guards.

Ric: We need to get out of here now.

Jason: Shut up!

Sonny: How you doing?

Carly: I'm -- I'm ok, but I can't run. I can't even walk. I could lose the baby.

Jason: I'll carry you.

Sonny: Ok, we're going to get you to the car, and then you can pick up Courtney.

Carly: Courtney's here?

Sonny: She told us where you were.

Jason: Ok, ok, come on, we got to go.

Carly: Gentle, gentle.

Jason: Ok, ok. All right.

Sonny: Wait, wait. Just wait. Just wait.

Reporter: Congratulations on your record turnout.

Alan: Well, the credit goes to the volunteers, the ones who walked, the ones who sponsor them.

Reporter: And this event isn't only about raising money for research. Isn't it also about raising breast cancer awareness?

Monica: Absolutely. I mean, the goal is early detection and treatment. That's the first step to a cure.

Kyle: Did it kick in yet?

Maxie: What?

Kyle: The pill.

Maxie: Yeah.

Kyle: Me, too. Have some more beer.

Kyle: You're so buzzed! I love it!

Maxie: Ok, great, now I have to go home and change my clothes.

Kyle: Why?

Maxie: Do you really want to be seen with me in this?

Kyle: You could take your shirt off and hang it out the window on the way there.

Maxie: On the way where?

Kyle: Where we're going.

Maxie: Are you asking me out?

Kyle: Yeah. If you want to. Tonight?

Maxie: But after I change my clothes.

Kyle: Ugh! How many years is that going to take?

Maxie: Five seconds. Give me another sip.

Kyle: Don't take all day.

Maxie: With the beer?

Kyle: Changing your clothes.

Maxie: You promise you're going to wait for me?

Kyle: Mm-hmm. You came through for me tonight.

Maxie: Ok, put that away. Dr. Quartermaine's looking over here.

Georgie: It's -- it's fine. Just go.

Dillon: I just -- I just want this to be real.

Georgie: No, it's fine. You don't want to be with me. I understand.

Dillon: No. No, I -- I do, but I want it to be special, you know? I mean, just now, it kind of felt like we were trying to prove something. I don't want to do that.

Georgie: Really, you don't have to say that.

Dillon: I'm not joking. I want -- I want you to want me, you know, like I've always wanted you.

Georgie: No, you haven't.

Dillon: Are you kidding? All that stupid stuff I did? Stealing the bike and picking Alcazar's pocket?

Georgie: Yeah, that was pretty stupid.

Dillon: Yeah, it was stupid. It was very stupid, and when I started to work for Alcazar, you know, those jobs, I just screwed up every single one.

Georgie: Yeah, but that wasn't your fault.

Dillon: Yeah, but it was dumb.

Georgie: Yeah, but it was -- it was brave. Maybe even kind of cool.

Dillon: You saying you think I'm cool?

Georgie: I'm saying don't go.

Skye: Why would a woman come out of nowhere and just slap you?

Ned: I think her name was Tammy or Tina. Something like that. It had to be her.

Skye: The woman who just slapped you?

Ned: Tina. Tina. That's her name. Yes. She was on the bed, mostly naked, and I -- well, I just told her to, like, "get up, put your clothes on." I mean, she was 15. I didn't go near the bed. I had my jacket on, ok, and she flipped out. She went hysterical on me. She called hotel security, said I raped her.

Skye: Oh, my God.

Ned: The cops came, I answered all their questions. Lois was there, thankfully. She smoothed things over. There were no charges filed, and the band and I just snuck out of town.

Skye: Why would she just show up out of nowhere?

Ned: Maybe a coincidence?

Skye: Do I have to remind you there's no such thing?

Ned: No. You don't.

Alexis: Ok, so she got upset because Ned rejected her.

Stefan: He was accused of rape.

Alexis: There weren't any charges filed here, there's no medical exam. There's no evidence here at all. Ned would never do anything like that.

Stefan: Tina has stood by her story all these years.

Alexis: This is what you're using to get my child back? A cheap P.I. Report and an assault that never happened?

Stefan: It sets a precedent, one I can build on. Eventually, we can have Ned sent to prison.

Nikolas: I apologize on Lydia's behalf.

Emily: No apologies are necessary.

Lydia: It was just an idea.

Nikolas: If you'll excuse us, Emily.

Lydia: Why are you so upset about this?

Nikolas: I hope this fundraiser breaks all the records.

Emily: So do I.

Nikolas: Come on.

Elizabeth: Emily? Hey.

Emily: Hey.

Elizabeth: What was that about?

Emily: They aren't sleeping together.

Elizabeth: But they just got married.

Emily: I know. I wish I wasn't, but I'm thrilled.

Jason: Ok. You ok? Am I hurting you?

Carly: Yeah, no, no, I'm ok. Let's get out of here.

Ric: Check the hallway again.

Carly: He's coming with us?

Sonny: He tries anything, I'll shoot him. All right, it's clear. Let's go.

Ric: Sonny, look out!

Ric: Give me your gun. Give me your gun.

Ric: Go. Go!

Maxie: Georgie, you stole my blue shirt again.

Georgie: Get out of here! Maxie, get out of here!

[Maxie laughs]

Georgie: Oh, my God. What is wrong with you?

Dillon: She's -- she's drunk.

Georgie: Did Kyle give you --

Maxie: What are you doing? And why are you naked?

Georgie: Did Kyle give you X?

Maxie: No!

Dillon: What did he give you?

Maxie: Don't tell anybody this, but I'm a thief!

Monica: Has Zander checked in yet?

Alan: I don't see his name here.

Monica: Well, that's kind of odd.

Edward: He probably walked away from Emily right when she needed him the most. I thought he would.

Monica: Oh, Edward, put a sock in it.

A.J.: Whoa. You all right, man?

Kyle: Watch it, dude.

Emily: You know, I'm being so totally selfish. At least I know Zander and Nikolas are safe. Do you even know where Ric is?

Elizabeth: Oh, I think he's in south America somewhere. I know it makes no sense, but I can't stop worrying about him.

Emily: And my biggest problem is Zander getting blisters.

Elizabeth: What about Nikolas? Where does he rank on the problem scale?

Emily: Oh, Nikolas is married. I shouldn't be thinking of him as anything but a friend.

Elizabeth: Then why are you thrilled he's not sleeping with his wife?

Emily: Because she's shallow and self-absorbed and Nikolas is too good for her.

Elizabeth: Oh, I'm glad we got that cleared up.

Emily: Not that it's any of my business. You know, I'm with Zander. I love him.

Elizabeth: But you can't stop thinking about Nikolas.

Emily: I chose Zander. I have to let Nikolas go.

Nikolas: Look, I have a lot of work to do, ok?

Lydia: That's it?

Nikolas: There's no point in discussing it, Lydia.

Lydia: Why are you so upset about this?

Nikolas: You embarrassed me and yourself. And you caused Emily a lot of unnecessary pain, ok?

Lydia: Over what? Emily's pet charity gets my money, she gets to be saintly --

Nikolas: Ok, that's --

Lydia: And helpful.

Nikolas: That's enough.

Lydia: And I get to make love to my husband.

Nikolas: Look, you knew the terms of our agreement when we got married.

Lydia: So did you. And we have to have a child -- the sooner, the better.

Nikolas: We have five years for that.

Lydia: I am not Emily, and I'm never going to be. She's with someone else now, Nikolas. You let her go. Will I have to pay for that the rest of my life?

Nikolas: You have any idea how much you hurt her today? Do you?

Lydia: Emily was laughing.

Nikolas: She was on the verge of tears.

Lydia: Emily's always on the verge of tears.

Nikolas: And you're willing to use that pain to get what you want, aren't you?

Lydia: So what was your big donation all about, huh? Weren't you using Emily, too? Nikolas, the heroic prince, proving to all the world that you still love Emily even though you married me. What is it about her? What does she have that I don't?

Lorenzo: My men have orders to shoot anyone who tries to leave except me.

Courtney: Sonny and Jason obviously aren't coming.

Lorenzo: How do you know that?

Courtney: Well, they probably found Carly and left.

Lorenzo: I doubt it.

Courtney: Why do you say that? Is Carly all right? You know, if you hurt her --

Lorenzo: I would never hurt Carly. I wouldn't let anyone else hurt her, either.

Courtney: Right. You have to protect her because who needs a dead bargaining chip, right?

Lorenzo: Wrong. A good bargaining chip is expendable. Carly isn't. Not anymore. But you are.

Maxie: Ok, so there was this party, right, and Kyle missed it, but so did I!

Georgie: Maxie, what does that have to do with anything?

Maxie: Uh, tickets?

Georgie: You have to have tickets to get to this party? What are you talking about?

Maxie: Drugs, Georgie, drugs.

Dillon: Oh, great.

Maxie: Drugs.

Dillon: That's great.

Georgie: If you have to have drugs to get into this party, doesn't that tell you a thing or two?

Maxie: Yeah, well, I let Kyle down.

Georgie: Since when do you have to steal drugs for him?

Maxie: Because he likes downs, Georgie. So I stole some! It was so easy, too.

Georgie: Maxie, where did you get the drugs?

Maxie: I am the perfect little candy striper. Did you know that?

Georgie: You idiot!

Dillon: Look at me, look at me. Did you steal drugs from general hospital?

Maxie: Right off this little tray. And now Kyle wants to party with me!

Georgie: Maxie, how many did you steal?

Maxie: I don't know, Georgie. How many are in a bottle?

Georgie: They count those pills after every shift.

Dillon: Ok, well, do you think they could trace them back to her?

Georgie: Maybe.

Dillon: Do you think she might have them on her right now?

Georgie: Yeah.

Maxie: Hey!

Georgie: Where are the pills, Maxie?

Maxie: What are you doing?

Georgie: Maxie, where are the pills?

Maxie: Hey, I've been looking for this lip-gloss for, like, years.

Dillon: Come on, did you give the pills to Kyle?

Maxie: What?

Georgie: The pills!

Maxie: Any party in town, I will be there with Kyle Radcliffe, ok, because he has the tickets right in his pocket, thank you to me.

Georgie: Kyle must have them.

Dillon: Can you keep her here?

Georgie: Yeah, no problem.

Dillon: Ok, you know what, I'm going to -- I'm going to see if I can fix this.

Georgie: Dillon?

Dillon: Yeah?

Georgie: Thank you.

Dillon: Whoa!

Lydia: It seems pretty clear to me. You'd rather pine away for some tragic victim than be with a real woman. You'd rather be devoted to Emily than just admit you married for money.

Nikolas: It's been a long day, Lydia! I don't want to do this.

Lydia: Here's what I don't understand. When you married me, it was all about honor, tradition, and doing what was right for precious Emily. But when I married you, everybody thinks I'm just some money-grubbing rich kid down on her luck.

Nikolas: Fine.

Lydia: I love that -- "fine." It means "go to hell."

Nikolas: Not at all.

Lydia: Why are you so damn polite all the time? Why can't you just admit you wouldn't give up the money to go after what you really wanted?

Nikolas: Emily's in love with someone else, ok?

Lydia: Not the way she loves you. Even I can see that. Do you want out of this marriage?

Nikolas: I want Emily to have the life she wants with the man she deserves, even if that isn't me.

Lydia: That's so noble, it makes my teeth hurt.

Nikolas: I want you to leave now.

Lydia: What did I say?

Nikolas: Leave!

Lydia: You know, what I don't get, is this just some sort of ego thing, withholding affection until you get what you want?

Nikolas: You can't give me what I want, all right? Now, good night!

Lydia: Ugh!

Alexis: He's been completely unfair, but I don't want him going to prison.

Stefan: You say you're committed to Kristina? I'm trying to help you honor that commitment.

Alexis: I want my daughter back. I don't see why that should cost Ned his freedom.

Stefan: You want me to drop everything?

Alexis: He's starting to weaken a little bit. He wants to work this out. He let me hold her even though there's a restraining order.

Skye: Can you say "mama"? "Mama"? "Mama."

Stefan: Alexis, Kristina is your flesh and blood. Why should Ned be allowed to say when and if you can see her? You were robbed of a relationship with your own mother. Is that what you want to happen to your daughter?

Alexis: Do it.

Ned: Alexis. Um, about that restraining order -- I think we can all find a better way to deal with each other.

Alexis: I agree.

Ned: You know, it's been a long time since Eddie's Angel, hasn't it?

Alexis: Why are you bringing that up?

Ned: Well, our lives have gone in different directions, but that doesn't mean we have to rip Kristina apart.

Alexis: That's the last thing that I want to do.

Ned: Good. I'm willing to try again if you are.

Skye: Ahem. It's getting late.

Ned: Yeah, we need to get her home.

Alexis: Bye, sweetheart. I love you. Thank you for letting me hold her.

Ned: Of course. Here, let me take her.

Skye: Ok. Don't get used to it.

Emily: You still wishing you never met Ric?

Elizabeth: Every other second. The rest of the time, I'm worried sick about him.

Emily: None of it makes any sense at all.

Elizabeth: No argument here.

Emily: Oh, why did I fall in love with Zander and when did my crush on Nikolas change? Why does it have to be so complicated?

Elizabeth: Oh, please, don't ask me. I married a man whose whole life was a lie, and I still believe he was being honest when he told me he loved me.

Lorenzo: Try to relax. Sonny and Jason will be here.

Courtney: Yeah, I don't think so.

Lorenzo: What's wrong?

Courtney: I think it's the flu.

[Phone rings]

Lorenzo: Yes? How did this happen? Is he dead? Well, don't let him die. Ric Lansing threw himself in the line of fire.

Courtney: What about Jason?

Lorenzo: He and Sonny escaped with Carly. It was considerate of you to fly down here just in time to be my backup plan.

Emily: Are you sure Zander hasn't checked in?

Edward: Oh, he's probably in a bar somewhere.

Emily: Oh, not a chance.

Monica: Zander loves Emily.

Edward: This family loves Emily.

Monica: And one does not exclude the other.

A.J.: That's right, em needs everyone's support, even people you don't particularly approve of.

Edward: I don't like or approve of most of you, but you're here. And that deviant deadbeat took the first opportunity --

Emily: Zander will be back, whether you like it or not, grandfather. I'm not a little girl anymore, ok? I need my family, I always will, and I love you all so much, but there's more for me out there and I'm going to discover it with Zander.

Edward: Honey, you could do a lot better for yourself.

Emily: Well, that's my choice, not yours. But I can promise you one thing -- I'll stick around to see how my life turns out.

Alan: You stick it to the old man, kid.

[Monica laughs]

Emily: You've given me courage and hope, not to mention stamina to keep up with a good argument. But there's always lots of love to come home to, and that really is the most -- hey, Zander!

Monica: Hello!

Zander: All right, pay up, old man.

Edward: What?

Zander: I ran the course twice.

Alan: You what?

Zander: Yeah.

Edward: This -- no, no, no, no, no, this paper's a forgery.

Monica: Wait. Excuse me, excuse me, but the initials of the checkpoint judges are here twice.

Edward: Oh --

Zander: Pay up.

Edward: All right, I'll pay.

Monica: Thank you, Zander! Thank you.

Alan: We appreciate everything you've done for Emily, Zander.

Monica: Absolutely.

Emily: Dad's right. You're my hero! Oh!

Monica: Ah, yes.

Emily: How can I ever thank you?

Zander: Water.

Emily: Ok.

Dillon: Hey, Kyle, how's it going? You -- you doing the walk? Oh, no, what am I -- what am I talking about? You're so blitzed out of your mind, you couldn't even stand up straight.

Kyle: What up, Dilly? You seen Maxie?

Dillon: No, no. But maybe she's out looking for a guy with an I.Q. greater than plywood. I mean, we can all hope, can't we?

Kyle: Hmm. You're funny, you're --

Dillon: I would calm down if I were you, Kyle.

Alan: Hey, hey!

Kyle: Get off me!

Alan: Knock it off, knock it off! Come here! Whoa!

A.J.: What's going on?

Dillon: Why don't you ask him that?

Kyle: Get out of my face!

Alan: Hey, get out of here!

A.J.: Take it easy!

Alan: Hold on! What the hell is the trouble here?

Dillon: There's no trouble. No trouble at all, not anymore.

Kyle: Let go of me.

A.J.: Hey, are you all right?

Kyle: I'm gone.

A.J.: I've been watching that kid all day. He's definitely on something.

Carly: I can't believe you brought me chips.

Sonny: Well, I -- I promised God that if he brought you to me, you could have anything you wanted.

Carly: Do you know that I dreamed that you found me? Once, you walked through the walls at Ric's. And another time, you just took my hand and we walked off the yacht and on to the jet. We just flew away.

Sonny: We will.

Carly: What do you think's taking Jason so long? Was the hotel far from the clinic?

Sonny: They'll be here soon, they'll be here soon.

Carly: Ric won't be, though.

Sonny: He's probably dead by now.

Carly: He stepped right in to the line of fire.

Sonny: Yeah, well, he got what he wanted. Maybe his blood will get him into heaven.

Man: Mr. Alcazar. Yeah, he's still alive. He doesn't look good.

[Ric moans]

Ric: Elizabeth?

Elizabeth: Why did you do it, Ric?

Ric: I did it for you. Carly's safe now.

Elizabeth: But what about you?

Ric: Now -- now you're free.

Elizabeth: What do you mean?

Ric: From all the terrible things that I did. Please -- please tell me you forgive me. Please? So I can be free, too. Please? I love you.

Elizabeth: Ric, can you hear me? Ric?

Doctor: Can you hear me, Mr. Lansing? Can you hear me?

Lorenzo: Mr. Morgan. What took you so long? I'll show you sorry!

Emily: Are you feeling better?

Zander: You happy?

Emily: Very.

Zander: Then I feel great.

Emily: You proved yourself to Grandfather today.

Zander: What about you? I mean, are you -- are you sure?

Emily: That check from Nikolas really bothered you, didn't it?

Zander: Look, I'm glad the foundation got the money, but -- but, yeah, yeah, it bothered me.

Emily: You listen to me -- what you did today, running all those miles, that means more to me than any check from Nikolas.

Lydia: What do I care what time it is? Just get the papers together. I want everything quick and simple. I don't want any advice about this. I just want to have my marriage annulled.

Stefan: What do you think you're doing?

Lydia: Why should I stay married to a man who won't sleep with me?

Stefan: Because you'll lose every penny if you don't.

Lydia: I've already lost. Nikolas won't consummate this marriage to me, and without a child, I don't get the money. The plan didn't work. I'll marry someone else.

Stefan: The only way you'll get out of this marriage is by leaving Nikolas a widower.

Georgie: Maxie, what is wrong with you?

Maxie: Shut up, Georgie.

Georgie: So now you're stealing drugs for the jerk?

Maxie: Ok, I want to party with those people, Georgie, and it has nothing to do with Kyle, all right?

Georgie: Ok. So what if Mac finds out?

Maxie: He better not.

Georgie: How can you not notice someone stealing drugs from a hospital?

Maxie: They'll never suspect me, Georgie. Look, if you make this a big deal, I'll tell Mac that Dillon was here.

Georgie: You're probably so out of it, you won't even remember.

Maxie: What were you guys doing anyways?

Georgie: That's it, get out of my room. Out, Maxie! Out!

Maxie: You did it, didn't you?

Georgie: That is none of your business!

Maxie: You did. You had sex with Dillon Quartermaine, huh?

Georgie: Yeah. Yeah, I did.

Alan: What are you doing with the pills?

[Music plays and Ric's monitor flat-lines]

Carly: Do you think something happened?

Sonny: No, no, they'll be here soon. Don't worry about that.

Carly: I can't wait to get home and just hold Michael in my arms.

Sonny: You'll be proud of that little boy. He was so scared, all the time. But he found a way to hold on, you know? I kept promising that, "Mommy's going to come home, Mommy's going to come home."

Carly: I kept telling this one the same thing. I said, "we're going to go home, and Michael and Daddy, they're going to be waiting for us." And we're almost there.

Sonny: I can't stop staring at you.

Carly: Then don't. I can't stop looking at you, either.

Sonny: Um --

Carly: What?

Sonny: It's just you've -- you've been through a lot, you know? I don't want to hurt you guys.

Carly: You need to remember a promise you made. You said that when you got me home, you were going to make love to me 50,000 times. And you know what, I'm going to hold you to that.

Pilot: Mr. Corinthos, Alcazar's guerrillas are heading for the runway. If we don't take off now, we'll never make it.

Jason: You can let her go.

Lorenzo: Oh. Thank you.

Jason: You all right? Carly's with Sonny. The plane already took off.

Lorenzo: Sonny would never leave you and his sister behind. You call him. Tell him he needs to return his wife to me.

Jason: That's not going to happen.

Lorenzo: This is all about leverage. You convince Sonny to return Carly to me or I'll take Courtney. Your choice.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Lydia: Stefan is going to try and kill me just like he killed Summer.

Alan: If you're stealing from the hospital, you've got some kind of addiction.

Doctor: Clear.

Lorenzo: If I have to kill her to control you, so be it.

Carly: We have to wait.

Pilot: Alcazar's people are headed for the plane.
