Lydia: Oh. Thank God you're here.
Lucky: What, you're glad to see me?
Lydia: Is there somewhere we can talk? Your room, maybe?
Lucky: You know what? Forget it. I'm not in the mood for one of your rebound seductions.
Lydia: Could you be any more arrogant?
Lucky: You know what? Substitute the word "predictable" and I could ask you the same question.
Lydia: I need you to listen to me. This is serious.
Lucky: All right.
Lydia: I just told Stefan that I wanted out of this farce of a marriage with Nikolas.
Lucky: Well, good for you.
Lydia: No, bad for me. Stefan made another one of his not-so-veiled threats. He told me that the only way that I could get out of this marriage would be to make Nikolas a widower. Lucky, I am scared that Stefan is going to try and kill me just like he killed Summer.
Stefan: Lydia is out of control. Drastic measures may be required to rein her in. Just keep me informed of her whereabouts at all times.
Maxie: You actually had sex with Dillon?
Georgie: Why are you so shocked? I mean, you couldn't wait to lose your virginity to Kyle.
Maxie: So you did it because of me?
Georgie: God, no, Maxie! Not everything I do is about you! I mean, I had sex with Dillon because -- because maybe I wanted to!
Maxie: So what happened to all of your dopey talk about love and romance, Georgie, and waiting for the exact right second? Instead, you knock it off right here at home with some guy you barely know who splits the moment that he's finished?
Georgie: You know what, Maxie? If you had a clue, you'd be dangerous.
Maxie: You know, I guess Dillonís just not so special after all. He's just like any other jerk out there looking to score. Did you even bother to use protection, Georgie, or did he put you at risk for --
Georgie: Thanks to you, Dillon is the one at risk right now trying to save your sorry butt.
Alan: Hand over the painkillers.
Dillon: I was just putting them back.
Alan: How did you happen to be in possession of hydrocodone in the first place?
Dillon: You know, I thought it was aspirin. I got a really bad headache all day --
Alan: You can buy aspirin over the counter at any convenience store. If you're stealing from the hospital, you got more than a headache. You've got some kind of addiction.
Doctor: He's in v-fib. Charging to 200. Clear. Charging to 300. Clear.
Sonny: Get the plane ready for takeoff. Be ready for my word. You're going to have to strap in.
Carly: No, we can't leave Jason and Courtney --
Sonny: I'll help you strap in, ok? Here. I'm going to --
Carly: We have to wait --
Sonny: Ok, listen. There is no option. We cannot wait.
Lorenzo: I've given you a choice, a simple one -- Courtney or Carly. You're running out of time.
Jason: Don't you get it? It's too late to get Carly back. Sonny's plane's already gone.
Lorenzo: I told you I don't believe that. What I do believe is that Sonny's not going to wait on the tarmac all night like a sitting duck. If you want to save your fiancťeís life, call him. You tell him Iím holding his sister at gunpoint and he needs to return Carly to me immediately. That's nonnegotiable.
Courtney: Sonny will never turn Carly over to you.
Lorenzo: You better hope you're wrong. Make sure Sonny understands. He gives Carly back to me or Courtney dies.
Courtney: Jason, Carly's already been through too much. I won't risk her baby's life. Just tell Sonny to take her home.
Jason: Hey, it's me. We got a problem. Alcazar's got Courtney and he wants to trade. Now, he says that Carly is the only hostage that he'll accept, and he's holding a gun on Courtney right now, and he's ready to kill her unless you bring Carly back.
Lucky: It's ok. Just take a deep breath.
Lydia: I know this may be hard for you to believe, but I have never had my life threatened.
Lucky: Well, get used to it.
Lydia: Is that supposed to be funny? Stefan wouldn't think twice about arranging a fatal accident for me if I decide to have my marriage annulled. There's no telling what tortures of the damned he'd inflict if he found out I'd implicated him in Summer's murder. And all you can do is throw cheap shots?
Lucky: I'm sorry. It's just you're an easy target.
Lydia: You know what? Throw yourself off a cliff.
Lucky: I apologize, ok? Really. Now, please, just sit down and let me fill you in on all the points you're missing. There is a clause in your grandfather's will that says you will forfeit your inheritance if you and Nikolas don't produce an heir in the next five years. Correct?
Lydia: Yes, but what does that have to do with --
Lucky: Well, you're no good to Stefan if you're dead -- well, that is, unless you produce a baby.
Lydia: There's a reason to avoid getting pregnant, not that my husband would deign sleep with me.
Lucky: Stefan is just trying to scare you. He thinks if you're properly intimidated that you won't put him in prison for the rest of his life. But you're about to prove him wrong, unless I miss my guess.
Lydia: You were right about all of it -- Summer's murder, what went down the night that she died, Stefanís involvement --
Lucky: Ok, all right. Just start from the beginning.
Lydia: Stefan freaked when Nikolas announced his engagement to Emily, ok. I mean, beside himself. And then all of a sudden, for no apparent reason, this sense of calm came over him and he got really confident. "Don't concern yourself with Emily, Lydia. Leave her to me," or words to that effect. You get the picture?
Lucky: Oh, yes, I do. Just go on.
Lydia: So I tried to figure out what he meant by that, but I couldn't get a straight answer. It never remotely occurred to me, Lucky, that he had decided to have Emily killed. Not until the night of that dreadful party when I -- I saw that stricken look on his face. He didn't get upset when the housekeeper reported that a woman had died. No. It was much later when Emily came out of that fog very much alive.
Lucky: He's a sick bastard.
Lydia: And Stefan bolted for the house. I followed him. He left the study door open, he was in such a rush. But anyone could have heard him in there. And he was ripping into Darius, berating him for incompetence, ordered him off the island and out of the country.
Lucky: And that's when Stefan arranged for Darius' absence to be permanent by arranging a plane crash.
Lydia: I'm next.
Lucky: Not if we get to him first.
Georgie: When did you become so completely self-absorbed? Don't you get it that if Dillon gets in some brawl with Kyle or gets caught returning your stolen drugs, Mac will send him to juvie -- if the Quartermaines don't ship him off to military school first. Because no amount of explaining will ever, ever, ever convince anyone that you're the total screw up and Dillon is just trying to clean up your mess!
Maxie: Did I miss the part where I asked him to, Georgie? Dillon is an idiot! He never should have gotten involved!
Georgie: You clueless moron! Dillon is involved because you're my sister!
Alan: Let me tell you something. There are some families who have a predisposition for substance abuse, and the Quartermaines are a prime example. For God's sakes, A.J. was abusing alcohol when he was younger than you are, and it was because of that abuse he drove Jasonís head straight into a tree. And me? My drug of choice was hydrocodone. Because of that drug, it destroyed what I had worked my entire life for -- my marriage, my career.
Dillon: I'm sorry to hear that, but I don't have a problem.
Alan: Well, that's what I thought at first.
Dillon: No, I'm serious. I really don't have a problem. I mean, I'm not addicted to anything.
Alan: Then you must have a hell of a headache.
Dillon: Ok, yeah, I know that was lame, but the truth is it's not my story to tell. And besides that, it's boring.
Alan: Believe me, I won't be bored. But let me guess what your story is. Narcissistic mother ignores teenage son, then drops him off with a family that could care less. That teenage son then tries to ease his pain and loneliness with recreational drugs.
Dillon: You really don't get it, don't you? I just told you that I don't have a drug problem, and already you're blaming my mother? Man, you don't get me any better than the rest of the Quartermaines, do you? And the last thing that I need is some long, drawn-out, pompous anti-drug lecture when I don't have a problem with drugs and I never have.
Alan: Boy, are you in denial.
Jason: Are you all right?
Courtney: They're too tight.
Lorenzo: Get back.
Jason: She said the restraints were too tight.
Lorenzo: Yeah, I heard her. That's the whole point.
Jason: I want to just loosen them. Loosen them.
Lorenzo: And I don't want to have to hurt Courtney. But if I have to kill her to control you, so be it.
Jason: I don't get it. What changed? You were supposed to be so much smarter than Luis.
Lorenzo: Your point?
Jason: My point is this is a real bad way to go about making a deal with Sonny. Or isn't it about business anymore?
Lorenzo: Sonny has nothing I want except access to those docks.
Jason: Then why antagonize him by demanding his wife as a hostage? Think about it -- Carlyís pregnant. She's at high risk for premature labor. If that happens, she and the baby both could die. Why would you risk that on your watch?
Lorenzo: I'm touched by your concern.
Jason: This isn't a game. If Carly dies, you will never have access to Sonny's docks and you'll be looking over your shoulder for the rest of your life.
Lorenzo: You're stalling. Why? Is that what Sonny ordered you to do? You know what? I'll speak to him myself. You never spoke to Sonny. Maybe you didn't want him to hear my offer. I guess we understand your fiancťís priorities now. Does it surprise you that you're not first on his list?
Carly: We cannot just leave. The fact that Jason and Courtney haven't made it here means something went wrong.
Sonny: No, or -- look, or they know Alcazar's men are headed for the airport. Look, we got to give Jason credit here. He's smart. He's got great instincts.
Carly: It doesn't mean he can't be killed.
Sonny: He's got Courtney with him. He's not going to let anything happen to her.
Pilot: Alcazar's people are on the tarmac. They're headed for the plane.
Elizabeth: Ric, don't go.
Ric: Elizabeth. How'd you get here?
Elizabeth: You know the answer to that. I'm wherever you are because Iím in your heart.
Ric: I didn't think that was a place you wanted to be.
Elizabeth: Well, I don't seem to have a choice. But we're even because you're in my heart, too. Please don't leave. I can't imagine this world without you in it. Promise you won't give up on us.
Ric: I don't understand. Are you saying that you can forgive me?
Elizabeth: I want to. Help me. Give me time.
Doctor: Good. He's back in sinus rhythm.
Nurse: Lucky man.
Doctor: He is, indeed.
Sonny: I want the tarmac clear so Jason and Courtney can get to the plane. Put armed guards everywhere. Make sure Alcazar's people don't stop them from leaving. Don't get upset, honey, ok?
Carly: I just have a bad feeling.
Sonny: Jason knows what he's doing.
Carly: All right. Then Iíll just think happy thoughts because there's a lot to be grateful for, right?
Sonny: That's right.
Carly: The baby's still safe inside of me.
Carly: I'm free. We're going home to see our little boy. And best of all, Iím with you. Do you have any idea how much I love you?
Sonny: I do.
Lorenzo: Jason's reputation is that of a loyal foot soldier. Too bad his loyalty doesn't extend to the woman he claims to love.
Courtney: You don't know anything about Jason.
Lorenzo: Well, I know he helped Sonny and Carly escape, leaving the two of you here to clean up the mess. Didn't even give you a vote. Well, I'm going to rectify that because I only need one hostage, so that makes one of you redundant. And you get to decide. I prefer to eliminate Jason, but I'll leave it up to you.
Courtney: You can't really mean that.
Lorenzo: What do you say, Morgan? You think I mean it?
Jason: There's no choice. You have to stay safe. Nothing else matters.
Courtney: No. No, Jason, neither one of us can die. Not now.
Lorenzo: All right, let's not waste time arguing a moot point. Figure out which one lives and let's be done with it.
Jason: I love you.
Courtney: I love you, too. Jason, you have to know that Iíll fight for my life no matter what -- Jason! No!
Lydia: Aren't you the same person who practically dragged me to the police station by my hair the other day, the one who was livid because I refused to make a statement implicating Stefan in Summer's murder? Now you want to keep the police out of it?
Lucky: Just until we have enough compelling evidence. We want them to sit up and take notice, not just brush this off as another endless war that nobody cares about except my father and Stefan.
Lydia: Isn't my statement evidence enough?
Lucky: Did you hear Stefan order Darius to shove Emily off a cliff?
Lydia: No, but when I accused him of it, he didn't deny it. Instead, he threatened to implicate me in his crime.
Lucky: He used the word "crime"?
Lydia: Uh -- I can't say for sure.
Lucky: Ok, that's what I mean. We need more. The good news is you're in the position to go in and get it.
Lydia: Is there anything specific you want me to look for?
Lucky: Does that mean yes?
Lydia: Did you ever think I might have my own reasons for wanting to help you?
Lucky: You hate Stefan that much?
Lydia: He's at the top of my list. Look, do I have to be subjected to an interview? Either you want my help or you don't.
Stefan: Well, this is an unholy alliance -- not to mention dangerous -- for both of you.
Courtney: Is he alive?
Lorenzo: He certainly looks dead to me.
Courtney: No. No, you murdering bastard! I swear to God, if Sonny doesn't kill you, I'm going to kill you myself. No --
Lorenzo: Morgan's down. He's in the alley. Make sure he's dead. If he's not, finish him.
Doctor: We almost lost him twice -- before the surgery, then during. His will to survive must be very strong.
Man: It's a pity you wasted your efforts.
Man: Mr. Alcazar doesn't consider this man to be a friend. You know what that means.
Doctor: I'm not sure I do.
Man: Is there an injection you can give him? That would be the cleanest way.
Doctor: Absolutely not. I'm a doctor, not a killer.
Man: Then you might want to leave the room.
Doctor: What are you going to do to him?
Ric: He's going to kill me. But even a dying man deserves a last request.
Carly: I'm home.
Sonny: It's about time. You're all right.
Carly: I've thought about this moment so many times. You know what? I want to see Michael.
Sonny: No, no, stay. I'm going to -- I'll go -- the doctor said stay off your feet. I'll get him.
Carly: Ok. Hurry. I'm desperate to see him.
Sonny: Yeah, buddy?
Michael: I had a dream mommy came home, and I could actually hear her.
Sonny: Yeah? Come on, come here. Come on. Go over there. What do you see over there?
Carly: Hey! Oh --
Sonny: Be careful, buddy, be careful.
Carly: Oh, it's ok.
Michael: I missed you so much.
Carly: Oh, God, I missed you, too, Mr. Man. Let me see you. I think you've grown. Look at that.
Michael: You think so?
Carly: Yeah, I do. I can see it.
Michael: Is our baby ok?
Carly: Our baby's just fine, and so am I. I am so sorry that I was away so long. You must have been scared and confused.
Sonny: Brave little boy.
Michael: I was scared for a while. But then daddy said no matter how hard it was, no matter how long it would take, he said he'd bring you home.
Sonny: And you listened to daddy?
Michael: Yep, and I believed him.
Sonny: As you should, because your daddy always keeps his promises. He would never let this family down, and he never will.
Michael: It's good to have her home, huh, Dad?
Sonny: It's the best thing that's happened in a long time.
Georgie: Dillon's been gone way too long. What if he got arrested again?
Maxie: You know what I don't get, Georgie, is, why did he get out of bed in the first place?
Georgie: Excellent question, Maxie, but why did I let him? I mean, you don't give a damn about your life. Why should we, right?
Maxie: You know what I don't understand, Georgie, is, I mean, you're in bed with the guy that you're just absolutely crazy about, making love for your first time, right? And your sister walks in completely buzzing out of her mind rambling about some shirt. And instead of kicking me out and going on with the most romantic night of your life, you send your boyfriend charging off to save a stupid job that I could really care less about. Was your first time, like, really not all that great, Georgie?
Georgie: It was wonderful. It was perfect. It was everything I'd hoped for and more.
Maxie: You never answered my question. Did Dillon bring protection or did you just happen to have a supply of condoms up here?
Georgie: None of your business. I'm not discussing my sex life with you.
Maxie: Give it up, Georgie. There's nothing to discuss, ok? You and Dillon never had sex. You're still a virgin.
[knock on door]
Georgie: Dillon, thank God. Are you ok?
Dillon: Well, I -- I went to Kyle and got the drugs.
Georgie: Did you fight?
Dillon: Yes, but it was fairly unchallenging, considering he was stoned out of his mind.
Georgie: Well, wait a minute. What about the pills?
Dillon: What about the pills? I took them to General Hospital.
Dillon: And I almost got away with it.
Dillon: Well, my uncle Alan stopped me at the med cart.
Georgie: Oh, no.
Dillon: Yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh, and it gets worse, too. First, we had a bonding session and then an anti-drug lecture, and then he made me take a full physical with poking and prodding and blood samples and everything while he checked for track marks!
Georgie: Dillon, I am so sorry.
Dillon: Oh, it's ok. It's for a good cause, right?
Georgie: I'm not so sure about that.
Maxie: What were you trying to prove anyway, Dillon?
Dillon: I'm sorry -- "prove"?
Georgie: Maxie, what are you trying to prove, running wild, doing drugs, drinking? I mean, are you too cool to care if your anti-rejection drugs stop working and your body rejects B.J.'s heart? What about that?
Dillon: What is that supposed to mean?
Maxie: You didn't know? You must be, like, the only one in town.
Dillon: Well, I mean, I knew you were, like, sick when you were little.
Maxie: Oh, it's much more than sick, Dillon. I'm a freaking medical miracle, walking around with another girl's heart.
Georgie: Maxie, Iím really sorry --
Maxie: A sweet -- a sweet little saint of a girl. This girl that would have grown up to be this amazing person. Isn't that just hilarious, like -- like the worst joke that you guys have heard? Do you have any idea how sick I am of trying to live up to B.J.'s heart, Georgie? Do you have any idea how heavy it is or how loud it beats?
Georgie: Maxie, I am sorry --
Maxie: See, I was supposed to die, but my cousin died instead. Her name was B.J. She was my best friend. She had a ballet recital the last night that she was alive. And the next morning on her way to school, her school van was -- was hit by a drunk driver. And her parents decided to give me her heart. I didn't ask for it, but they gave it to me. I even tried to erase it! I convinced my mom to let me have plastic surgery in Dallas to cover the scar! Anyone else would have worn that proudly, but not me! Do you see what an awful person I am? B.J. died! And she should have been the one that lived, and I should have died! But just like everything else in my life, it got all screwed up, and now B.J.'S dead and I'm stuck with a heart that I'm not worthy of!
Georgie: Maxie -- wait -- no Ė
Stefan: Your mutual desire may be electrifying, but pursuing it would be suicidal.
Lucky: And why is that?
Stefan: Lydia is your brother's wife. If you act on your lust and betray Nikolas, I'll destroy you both.
Lydia: Here we go -- more threats. Frankly, Iíve had enough for one day. I'm out of here. How about you?
Lucky: I want a minute alone with Stefan.
Lydia: You're welcome to him.
Stefan: If you're wise, you'll leave her alone.
Lucky: No, what Iím wise to is you.
Stefan: Well, then you know Iíll stop at nothing to protect what belongs to the Cassadines.
Lucky: And what are you going to do about it, Stefan? You going to push me off the cliff like you intended to push Emily but you made a mistake? Or are you going to just botch that up and shove Lydia off instead?
Stefan: Trust me, if I come after you, there will be no mistakes.
Lucky: Then bring it on. Make it easy for me to bring you down or leave me the hell alone. Either way, I'm going to prove you're responsible for Summer's death.
Stefan: You're as big a fool as your father.
Lucky: You keep believing that.
Elizabeth: Lucky -- hey, just the person I wanted to see. Will you excuse us for a minute?
Elizabeth: Are you out of your mind? Why in God's name are you provoking Stefan?
Lucky: It's in my blood.
Elizabeth: Did you ever stop to think that if your suspicions about Stefan are true and he really did kill Summer, there's nothing to stop him from killing you, too?
Lucky: You know what? I just want him to feel the pressure. And I'm going to keep laying it on thick until he might crack. You know what? My dad did, and Stefan was no match for him.
Elizabeth: Lucky, I really, really wish you wouldn't do --
Elizabeth: God -- hello.
Ric: It's me.
Elizabeth: Ric? Are you all right?
Ric: Yeah. I don't have long. I -- I just wanted to talk to you one more time.
Elizabeth: "One more time"? What do you mean?
Ric: Just listen to me, ok? I know I wrecked everything. I'm not asking for forgiveness. I know I don't deserve it. I just want you to know that you made an immense difference in my life. You made it -- you made it sparkle. Given enough time, you probably would have erased the darkness altogether.
Elizabeth: Ric, why are you acting as if you know you're going to die?
Ric: Be happy, Elizabeth. I love you.
Elizabeth: No, Ric, I am not going to listen to this. Ric? Ric?
Sonny: Michael's asleep, big smile on his face, happier than he's been in months.
Carly: I wish I could have tucked him in. I wanted to sing him to sleep. It's been too long.
Sonny: Courtney tried to pick up the slack.
Carly: Did she sing to him?
Sonny: But anything's better than me.
Carly: You are many wonderful things, but a singer you are not.
[Sonny and Carly chuckle]
Sonny: You comfortable? You need anything --
Sonny: Need anything else? You know, blanket? I can get that blanket for you if you want.
Carly: No. I just need you closer --
Sonny: All right.
Carly: To me.
Sonny: Get over here. How's that?
Carly: You know, you were right. Jason's got precious cargo. He'll keep Courtney safe.
Sonny: Or die trying. You know, he just hasn't contacted us. And if they had taken off, he'd have called me from the plane. If -- if they didn't take off, then Iím just --
Sonny: I'm not worried about -- ok, hold on.
Jason: Hey, it's me.
Sonny: You and Courtney all right?
Jason: Yeah, so far.
Sonny: You on the plane?
Jason: I'm still in Colombia.
Sonny: What went wrong?
Jason: Alcazar's taken Courtney. So now I got to get her back.
Sonny: Any ideas?
Jason: Yeah, I got a plan.
Sonny: Well, Ja--
Carly: What -- what -- what happened?
Sonny: Alcazar has my sister.
Georgie: I can't believe I was so insensitive. My only excuse for that -- and it's really not a very good one -- is that I had no idea she was keeping all those feelings bottled up.
Dillon: How are you supposed to know if she didn't tell you? It's not your job to read Maxie's mind. Well, in any case, I get it now.
Dillon: Why everybody treats Maxie like she's so special, even though she's screwing up half the time, and then you get lost in the shuffle. That's not fair. You know, you're the special one.
Georgie: Yeah. Did you see my special talents at work just now? I handled Maxie all wrong!
Dillon: It's not your job to handle Maxie, Georgie. I mean, shouldn't she be responsible for herself once in a while?
Georgie: Obviously she's in a lot of pain and --
Dillon: Isn't everybody? Look, I'm not -- I'm not trying to bag on your sister or anything like that. Ok? I'm not. But, you know, there's a whole lot of things in Maxieís life that she hasn't learned to appreciate yet, and you're one of them. Man, I don't want to fall into that loop. So Iíll just -- I'll come right out and say it. You -- you're special to me. Oh, hell, I'm -- I am so lucky just to know you.
Kyle: Ok. That's some hello.
Maxie: I want to spend the night making love to you. I don't care what anybody thinks -- if it's good or if it's bad. I just want to be with you and forget everything else.
Kyle: You sound like somebody broke your heart.
Maxie: My heart. You know, that's a good one since I don't really have a heart. It faded away a long time ago. So it's a non-issue. Don't even worry about that, ok?
Lucky: Elizabeth, why do you think Ric's going to die?
Elizabeth: The way he sounded, the things he just said. Lucky, I love him. And I know he's done terrible things, but I don't want him to die.
Doctor: This is a clinic. We make people better here. We don't kill them.
Man: Mr. Alcazar is a very powerful man. You'd be wise to do whatever becomes necessary to maintain his friendship and goodwill. I'm sure this clinic is important to you. It'd be a shame to see it go up in smoke.
Man: This is double the usual fee, since Mr. Lansing's case turned out to be more complicated than expected.
Lorenzo: Where's your family now -- your brother, Carly, Jason? Is anyone going to rescue you?
Lorenzo: Yeah. How? Needless to say, I am disappointed.
Courtney: That was about Jason, right? He's alive. He got away. I knew it. You know what? He is twice as smart and strong as you or any of the men that work for you. You know he is going to come back for me, and he's going to kill you.
Sonny: I should have put you on the plane and gone back for them. That's what I should have done.
Sonny: What do you mean, how?
Carly: Alcazar's men were storming the airstrip. They were shooting at the plane. You would have been dead on the tarmac.
Sonny: This is just not right.
Lorenzo: I suppose you've heard by now -- Courtney is with me.
Sonny: You hurt my sister, you're a dead man.
Lorenzo: She's fine. Would you like to speak to her? Say hello to your brother. He's worried.
Sonny: Courtney, if he's hurt you in any way --
Courtney: No, I'm ok.
Lorenzo: Our original agreement is still in place -- your loved one in exchange for my distribution rights.
Sonny: I understand.
Lorenzo: One more thing. Put Carly on the phone.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Emily: Nikolas, how are you doing?
Elizabeth: My husband is dead, and one man is responsible.
Ric: Is your hate for me stronger than your love for Courtney, huh? Are you willing to risk her life just to get revenge against me?
Lorenzo: I want to speak to Carly.
Sonny: My wife is not in
