[Door opens]

Faith: I hear Elizabeth packs a pretty mean punch.

Ric: I'm busy.

Faith: Don't you want to know how I found out?

Ric: Not particularly.

Faith: I have excellent sources in very useful places, including inside the pcpd. The police have figured out where you are, Mr. Bentley.

Ric: Wasn't that complicated.

Faith: Well, they could come bursting through the door at any minute, not that Elizabeth would care. I mean, she's probably ratting you out as we speak, just like she did before. Why won't you let me take you away from all this?

Ric: It's really not necessary, Faith.

Faith: Don't you want to spend the night in a real bed with, say, a real woman?

Ric: Yeah, as a matter of fact, I would, but Elizabeth isn't available right now and that's the only person I'm thinking of, not you.

Faith: Wasn't very nice.

Ric: I'm trying to put together a defense here, so if you don't mind.

[Knock on door]

Dara: Mr. Bentley?

Ric: Ms. Jensen.

Dara: Ric.

Faith: Surprise, surprise.

Ric: Look, I'm sorry for the assumed named, but under the circumstances, you have to understand --

Dara: Why did you call me?

Ric: Are you interested in taking on a high-profile case?

Dara: Only if it's winnable.

Ric: Mine is. Look, I'll do the legwork. I just need a really effective litigator to help me out in court.

Faith: You know, for an intelligent man, you're really slow to pick up on --

Ric: Will you please leave now?

Faith: Yeah, but you don't need Dara. You don't need Elizabeth. You don't need anyone else. All you need is me.

Lydia: Maybe we should slow down.

Nikolas: That's up to you.

[Knock on door]

Lydia: Oh, my God. Stefan.

Nikolas: All right.

Lucky: Well, let me guess.

Nikolas: Lucky.

Lucky: What, were you expecting Stefan?

Lydia: Don't you ever sleep?

Nikolas: Don't you ever leave?

Lucky: We need to come up with a better plan.

Lydia: That's exactly what we were doing before your barged into our bedroom.

Zander: Check this out. Beach is a half-mile long. We could spend christmas there. The sun, the sea, and you and me. It's pretty poetic, huh? Em?

Monica: Oh, Zander --

Zander: Hi.

Monica: How's she doing?

Zander: She's sleeping. She's getting worse, isn't she?

Monica: Well, her white blood cell count is still dropping.

Zander: And there's nothing you can do for her?

Monica: Oh, just hope that she doesn't get any kind of infection.

Zander: How are you holding up?

Monica: Oh, well, I'm fine, under the circumstances.

Zander: Shouldn't you get some sleep?

Monica: No. I can't leave.

Zander: Yeah, I know. Neither can I.

Monica: Well, look, why don't we just make a tradeoff here. You go home and try to get some rest. I'll stay here until you come back.

Zander: Sure there's nothing I can do for you?

Monica: Um -- you know, actually, I've made just about all the bad news phone calls I care to make for the day. Could you -- could you call Nikolas? Emily gave me his private number.

Zander: Um -- sure, yeah. What do I say?

Monica: Well, you can tell him that the specialist that he called in has kind of run out of options, and she's not responding to the treatment, and all -- all that we can do right now is wait.

Zander: Sure. Yeah, I can do that.

Monica: Listen, I can do it. I -- really, Zander, I can do it.

Zander: No. You know what? You're dealing with a lot, Monica. The least I can do is deal with Nikolas.

Monica: Thank you. Thank you. You get some rest, ok?

Zander: Ok.

Sonny: I'm going to the hospital.

Stan: Whoa -- could be a setup.

Sonny: I don't -- it doesn't matter. Alcazar could be there. We're talking about my wife.

Carly: Where's Courtney?

Lorenzo: You're looking well.

Carly: Is she ok?

Lorenzo: I'm glad you got home safely.

Carly: Will you forget me? What about Courtney?

Lorenzo: She should have never shown up in South America.

Carly: Is that where she is right now?

Lorenzo: I wish I could tell you.

Carly: Lorenzo, don't hurt her.

Lorenzo: I don't want to, but if she keeps causing trouble, she's going to hurt herself.

Carly: What do you want?

Lorenzo: Would you like to visit Courtney? It can be arranged, if you agree to stay in her place.

Carly: You want to trade me for Courtney?

Lorenzo: You'll be safe with me. I can't make any promises about Courtney.

Jason: Get the hell away from her.

Carly: Jason --

Man: If you're planning on swimming to shore, you will never make it. We're more than a mile out, the water is freezing, and there is a southward current. You will drown within 10 minutes.

Courtney: No, no, you're lying. You're lying because you know you are a dead man if I escape.

Man: I'm telling you the truth, but you're not going to realize it until it's too late. Don't do this. Let Alcazar negotiate a release for you. Let's go.


Lydia: What if Stefan comes barging in, too? What will he think if you're here again? We agreed that Nikolas and I would start acting married.

Lucky: Yeah, and if you start crawling all over each other, Stefan will get suspicious.

Lydia: We're in our bedroom!

Nikolas: She has a point.

Lucky: You know what? We need to come up with a better plan across the board. We've given Stefan way too much time to cover his own tracks.

Nikolas: Could I have a moment with my brother, please?

Lydia: Will you shove him in the tunnels and seal the door forever?

Lucky: Oh, that's helpful. Thank you.

Lydia: Don't take too long.

Lucky: What is her problem?

Nikolas: Look, we just spent half the night deciding what to do. We agreed that you'd stay away, lull my uncle into a sense of security to catch him. Does any of that sound familiar?

Lucky: You've never been good at sarcasm.

Nikolas: What if you'd just gotten caught by the guard just now?

Lucky: I learned to walk by dodging security, all right? It's no big deal.

Nikolas: Ok, what would you like to do differently, lucky? Would you want to confront him?

Lucky: Of course not. But are you going to help me on this or not?

Nikolas: Look, if you don't want me sleeping with Lydia, why don't you just say so?

Dara: I'd say your most serious problems may not be legal.

Faith: Oh, you must mean me, then. What, do you see me as a threat, Ms. Jensen?

Ric: Faith, we're in the middle of a meeting here.

Faith: Ok, great. What's the strategy, Counselors, huh? You going to stroll up to the Judge and say, "oops, I forgot it was illegal to kidnap my brother's pregnant wife and chain her to a wall"?

Dara: You are facing pretty serious charges here.

Ric: There are mitigating circumstances.

Faith: Oh, yeah, that means "my plan didn't work."

Ric: If you think you're helping me out here, you're not.

Faith: He was planning to steal the baby, give it to Elizabeth, and kill Carly.

Ric: Faith, I need to speak to my attorney here, please.

Dara: I'm a long way from taking this case.

Faith: Yeah, and you won't if you have any common sense. I mean, my god, Ric took Sonny's wife and was going to steal his baby. How do you think Sonny Corinthos is going to deal with the attorney who tries to get him acquitted?

Ric: I am trying to put my life back together, salvage my career and what is left of my marriage.

Faith: Spin, spin --

Ric: Leave now!

Faith: Or, what, you're going to call security? Mean little Faith won't leave Mr. Bentley alone.

Ric: I'm sorry, Ms. Jensen, you'll have to excuse Ms. Rosco here. Our former association has led her to believe that she knows what's best for me when the truth is she is the definition of what I do not need in my life.

Faith: You will need me, Ric Lansing, sooner than you think. And you know what's going to happen when you come crying to me, huh, scared, trapped in a corner with nowhere to run? I am going to slam a door in your face.

Dara: Why was she here?

Ric: Never mind. Important thing is that she's gone. Listen, how familiar are you with my situation?

Dara: Let's just say that the rumors are flying.

Ric: Ok, they are going to charge me with kidnapping, maybe attempted murder.

Dara: I'd say reckless endangerment and aggravated circumstances. Kidnapping a pregnant woman and chaining her to a wall --

Ric: I was out of my mind with grief after my wife miscarried.

Dara: Uh-huh.

Ric: I blamed my brother, and I was temporarily insane.

Dara: Do you know the odds of an insanity defense?

Ric: Yes, I do. And that's why I'm going to need an expert medical witness.

Dara: Forget the shrink. You need a miracle.

Jason: Nobody's trading anything.

Lorenzo: Mr. Morgan, how did you know where to find me?

Carly: He's visiting his sister. Does he need clearance from you?

Lorenzo: I admire your loyalty, unlike Mr. Morgan who left his fiancée behind in South America. You know, she just waited and waited.

Jason: Are you going to tell me where Courtney is?

Sonny: Hey, Carly --

Lorenzo: This is precisely --

Sonny: You all right?

Carly: Yeah, I'm fine.

Lorenzo: The situation I wanted to avoid.

Sonny: Why are you following my wife?

Lorenzo: Is that what I'm doing?

Sonny: I'm not going to get into that. Release my sister, we'll work something out.

Lorenzo: I'll trade Courtney for Carly.

Sonny: I've been very patient with you, but I'm not a patient man.

Lorenzo: If you don't agree to a trade, Courtney may never come home.

Carly: Jason, no! No, no, no.

Sonny: Hey -- Jason, let go of him. Let go -- let go of him.

Lorenzo: Hurting me won't help you find Courtney.

Sonny: Let him go, Jason. Don't do it here. Not here. Let him go. But Jason's right. If you were out of the picture, it would -- it would be great.

Lorenzo: Killing me would be a mistake, wouldn't it, Carly? He's supposed to be dead. I gave the order.

Sonny: Your system's falling apart.

Lorenzo: I'm still holding your sister. I need a good reason to give her back. Consider my offer. Oh -- this must be yours. Tracking device inside the money. I expected better work from your people.

Sonny: No, no. No, no, wait.

Emily: A lot worse than you thought, right?

Ned: Actually, I was just thinking about how beautiful you are and how much you've grown since the first day I met you.

Emily: I could tell right away you and Grandmother were the only sane Qartermaines in existence.

Ned: Oh, I brought some C.D's, Lois sent some new stuff from Europe, and I dug up an old Eddie Maine disc. I cleared it with the doctors.

Emily: Thank you.

Ned: I -- I'd say that you were a captive audience, but that might be a little tasteless.

Emily: Yes, it would. Tell Lois I said thanks.

Ned: I will.

Emily: And don't be offended if I nod off while you're here.

Ned: I'll just pretend it's another E.L.Q. board meeting.

[Emily chuckles]

Emily: So how is Grandmother?

Ned: Well, she's spending a lot of good, quality time out in the rose garden.

Emily: Will you give her my love?

Ned: You're a lot like her, you know.

Emily: Thank you.

Ned: You never think about yourself. You're going to beat this. You know that, right?

Emily: Sure.

Ned: See, if you don't, I'll never hear the end of it.

[Ned and Emily laugh]

Ned: You think I'm kidding, but I'm not.

Emily: I know. That's why it's funny.

Ned: You're our heart, Emily. You're the best person this family's ever produced. The Quartermaines are all counting on you. And you know what we're like when we don't get our way.

Zander: Coleman.

Coleman: Hey, man, how you doing?

Zander: Good. Whiskey, straight.

Coleman: You got it, buddy. Whiskey.

Zander: Do it again. Make it a double.

Coleman: Whatever it takes, man.

Zander: Keep pouring. I don't want to feel anything at all.

Doctor: Get her on oxygen. Start an I.V. on fluids. Let's warm her up. We have to draw some blood.

Courtney: Where am I?

Doctor: We're going to help you. How's the B.P.?

Nurse: B.P. 80/42.

Courtney: What happened?

Doctor: Some fishermen pulled you out of the water. Now, let us help you. Are you allergic to any medication?

Courtney: No. No, I have to tell you something.

Doctor: Yes?

Monica: I didn't expect to see you here.

Skye: Oh -- you know, if it's too awkward, I can always leave. I just -- Ned really needs the support. I just -- I can't believe Emily's going through this, you know? It's so unfair.

Monica: Well, there isn't anything fair about cancer.

Skye: I took months from Emily's life, ok? I just -- I want you to know that I realize that. My coming to this family really -- really messed things up, and Emily ended up paying the most, and I am so sorry.

Ned: She's a trouper.

Skye: Well, do you think I could go in and see her now?

Monica: She shouldn't get overtired, really.

Skye: I swear, if it turns out to be a problem for Emily, I will leave, I promise.

Monica: Well, no matter what, then, just don't stay long.

Ned: Thank you. Skye is really trying.

Monica: We all are. Nobody thought we could beat this. We really did make so much progress since I was sick.

Ned: Emily's not giving up.

Monica: No, and I'm not giving up. I mean, we're not giving up, either. I just wish -- I wish I could take it. I wish I could just take it. I could be the one that's -- that's sick, not her. You know how frustrating this is? I am a mother and I cannot protect her, and I'm a doctor and I can't heal her, and I don't know what I'm going to do if she dies.

Ned: Monica, Emily is not going to die.

Monica: My God, I look at her, and I can almost see that cancer just taunting me. I know it has been living inside her, and now it's loose and it's just going to eat her up alive, and there's nothing I can do.

Ned: Monica, Monica -- hey.

Monica: Oh, God.

Skye: What, the family couldn't spring for flowers?

Emily: Too many germs.

Skye: Oh. Well, they have those silk ones. Can't they disinfect them or something?

Emily: Don't suggest it to Grandfather or there won't be any room in here for the machines.

Skye: I heard that Nikolas brought in a specialist from Zurich.

Emily: Montreal, but nothing he tried has worked.

Skye: Oh.

Emily: Look, you and I aren't exactly close, so why don't you just tell me what you want.

Lucky: Why would I care if you sleep with Lydia? She's your wife.

Nikolas: You've kissed her more than I have. You're starting to really care about her, aren't you?

Lucky: I want Lydia to testify against Stefan. That's all. If I have to be nice to her, I will. But other than that, you know what? She's yours.

Nikolas: Ok. So, do you want to continue with the plan?

Lucky: You know what? Just don't mess it up.

Nikolas: Lucky, my uncle wants to believe that we're really married. He won't get suspicious unless you keep showing up here.

Lucky: I'll stop.

Nikolas: Then you're ok with me and Lydia?

Lucky: Look, you need Lydia to save the Cassadines and I need Lydia to keep my dad from going to jail.

Nikolas: So this is all about saving Luke?

Lucky: Lydia's a means to an end, nothing more. But outside of that, you know what? Who needs her?

Lydia: Then we all understand one another, don't we?

Lucky: That's right.

Lydia: Now, where were we?

Nikolas: Whatever's going on between you and my brother, this won't help.

Lydia: Yes, it will.

Nikolas: He just hurt you, Lydia.

Lydia: No. He didn't.

Nikolas: Sleeping with me to get back at him will only hurt you more.

[Monitor beeps]

Courtney: Are you ever going to stop looking at her?

Jason: I didn't know I could be this happy.

Courtney: I did.

Jason: I thought the best day of my life was when you told me you were pregnant, but this is so much better. Yeah. This is our little girl. She's the most important thing that'll ever happen to us.

[Monitor alarm sounds]

Nurse: Doctor, hurry!

Sonny: If something happens to Alcazar, we don't get what we need. Take Carly home. I'll deal with Alcazar. You think I don't want my sister back, Jason? Trust me; I'll take care of the situation.

Carly: Come on. Come on, Jase.

Jason: I have to get Courtney back, whatever it takes.

Sonny: I know. I know that. I know.

Carly: Let's go.

[Knock on door]

Ric: Dr. Lewis. Glad you could make it so quickly. I was hoping -- how did you find me?

Lorenzo: Did you really think I wouldn't? I ordered your death once, but this will be sweeter.

Ric: Lorenzo, look, there's nothing I can do to you, all right?

Lorenzo: You treated her like an animal.

Ric: Wait a minute. Who you -- Carly?

Lorenzo: You set out to become friends with her, and then you betrayed her.

Ric: You know, I -- I don't know what you're talking about. You're the one who --

Lorenzo: I'd like to lock you in that room, chain you to that wall, but this will be cleaner and a lot faster.

Ric: Ok, take it easy. Look, there's something we can work out here. There's no reason to get upset. Just -- don't -- please -- Lorenzo!

Lorenzo: Carly couldn't protect herself, but I can, my friend.

Faith: I don't think so.

Lorenzo: Why are you always everywhere?

Faith: You want to kill him, go ahead. You die either way.

Ric: There's no reason for anybody to get shot here, ok? Let's everybody calm down.

Faith: The police would probably give me a medal for killing you. D.A. Baldwin might even send me a plaque. I mean, it was self-defense, after all. I was just saving my own life -- and Ric's.

Lorenzo: It's too late for that.

Sonny: What are you doing? You should really stop playing with guns. Get out of here.

Faith: God -- give my regards to your sister, would you, if you ever see her again.

Sonny: Looks like I saved your life. You owe me.

Skye: I've done a lot of bad things in my life, and I will probably do more. But if there's one thing that I could take back in my whole life, it would be that night that I gave you and Zander that money to run away. I never wanted you to get hurt, you know? I just -- and then you lost all that time and -- I took a whole year out of your life, and I know that you can never get that back, and all I can say is that I'm sorry and -- and let know that if there's anything that I could ever do to make it up to you, I would do it.

Emily: It's over, ok? I let it go a long time ago.

Skye: Ok. All right, you know what? I promised Monica that I wouldn't tire you out, so I'm going to go, ok?

Emily: Hey, wait a second. Maybe there is something you can do for me.

Zander: Hit me.

Coleman: You're working pretty fast on that, aren't you?

Zander: Pour me another drink, Coleman.

Coleman: What, is your girl going out on you, whoever she is?

Zander: No.

Coleman: Dude, nobody drinks like this unless there's a chick involved. Let her go, man. She ain't worth how you're going to feel in the morning.

Zander: She's dying of cancer.

Coleman: I'm sorry, man. On the house.

Zander: Thanks.

Coleman: Yeah, do you know a Zander Smith? Yeah, well, he's down here at Jake's and he's in pretty bad shape. You might want to come down here and see about it.

Carly: Jase, don't do -- Jase, let Sonny take care of this.

Jason: No.

Carly: What about Emily?

Jason: How's she doing?

Carly: She's not good. But she felt the baby kick. It made her feel better.

Jason: Thank you for seeing her.

Carly: It would help her if she saw you.

Jason: Emily understands that I have to find Courtney.

Carly: Emily may not be here when you get back.

Jason: Why are you making it so hard for me?

Carly: Jason, you already disappeared once. I know how hard it is --

Jason: I was following Alcazar. He's going to lead me to Courtney, Carly.

Carly: Sometimes it is best to do nothing. You taught me that.

Jason: No, not this time.

Carly: Listen to me. I don't think that Alcazar is going to hurt Courtney.

Jason: And how do you know that?

Carly: He didn't hurt me.

Jason: Are you defending him?

Carly: No. I'm just telling you he is not the monster that you think he is.

Jason: He tied Courtney to a chair and asked her to decide whether he should kill me or her.

Carly: Jason, Courtney loves you, ok, and if you die, you're killed trying to save her, it's going to break her heart.

Jason: I'm not going to die. I'm going to get Courtney. And what is it with you two? She tried to stop me when I went after you.

Carly: Jase, will you just be careful, ok? You and Courtney are so close to having everything that you want.

Jason: Mac, this is not a good time right now.

Mac: I need Carly's statement against Ric Lansing.

Carly: Fine. Just make it fast, all right?

Jason: Are you ok with this?

Carly: Will you just be careful?

Mac: I need to hear everything Ric did to you.

Sonny: We really have to come up with some kind of agreement.

Lorenzo: You really believe I'll tell you where Courtney is or that Ric's going to help you find her? Is that why you haven't killed him? Don't you realize he doesn't know anything?

Sonny: I'm not concerned about you. You know what I mean? And finding my sister is very important to me. Ric's nothing.

Lorenzo: Do you have any idea what this man did to Carly? Can you imagine how frightened she was? Is that why you've allowed him to live, because he's your brother? Does he mean more to you than Carly? If you won't do it, Sonny, I will.

Sonny: You'd be just like Luis, wouldn't you?

Ric: Sonny, I appreciate it.

Sonny: Ok, first of all, you know what? You took a bullet for me, right? Doesn't mean I owe you. So if you're going to thank me, don't. I saved you this time because I have my reasons. Ain't going to happen again.

Emily: You aren't exactly a very nice person.

Skye: Yeah. No question about that.

Emily: But you always look great.

Skye: Thank you.

Emily: Even when you do awful things. Especially when you do awful things.

Skye: Are you planning on doing something awful?

Emily: Kind of, in a way.

Skye: Oh, goody.

Emily: Yeah. I get so tired of being St. Emily, you know, the heart of the Quartermaines, the brave little soldier.

Skye: Yeah, I -- I guess that could get kind of tiresome.

Emily: And you have to understand that I love Zander.

Skye: Ok.

Emily: But Nikolas --

skye: Who is pretty cute, by the way.

Emily: I had the worst crush on him when I was in high school, Skye. It was so embarrassing, and he was perfect about the whole thing, as usual.

Skye: Oh, you were a kid, then, Emily.

Emily: Exactly, and that's how he saw me -- as a kid. And when I came back and needed help, it was all about the cancer, and he was wonderful. But, you know, now -- I may not live very much longer. And just once, I want Nikolas to see me as a woman, not as a kid with a crush or a dear friend with a terrible disease, you know? I want to be beautiful. And, no, don't tell me I already am. You know, I want to be -- I want to be dangerous, you know, with serious hair and perfect makeup and the kind of dress you would pick out. I want Nikolas to notice and to never forget, I don't care who he's married to.

Skye: Well. That's the spirit.

Emily: Just once I want to walk into a room and know that Nikolas can't take his eyes off of me.

Zander: You can't cut me off!

Coleman: Oh, yeah, I can. Go on upstairs, Zander.

Zander: I'm not going anywhere.

Coleman: Call it a night.

Zander: I won't call it a night!

Coleman: Yes, you --

Zander: Should have gone to Mexico, me and Emily. We should have just gone down there. Should have gotten on that bus. Should have gotten on that bus.

Nikolas: Zander.

Zander: Get out of here.

Coleman: I called him.

Zander: Why?

Coleman: You're in rough shape.

Nikolas: Thanks.

Coleman: Can you get him upstairs?

Nikolas: Yeah, no problem.

Zander: Emily's worse. Monica told me to call you.

Nikolas: But you didn't.

Zander: I haven't yet.

Nikolas: Getting drunk won't help Emily.

Zander: Your fancy doctor didn't help, either. "Prince Nikolas saves the day" didn't work.

Nikolas: Hey, Coleman? Got any cognac in here?

Coleman: You're kidding me, right?

Nikolas: All right, I'll just take a -- I'll take a double of your best vodka, up, please?

Coleman: You got it, man.

Zander: So --

Nikolas: Thank you.

Zander: Prince can get plastered but not the peasants? Is that how it works?

Nikolas: Give me another one. I just want to make sure we're on equal footing here, Zander.

Zander: I'll show you equal footing.

Lydia: Emily Quartermaine -- what room is she in?

Nurse: I'll check.

Lydia: Will you hurry, please?

Lucky: What the hell are you doing here?

Lydia: Who, me? The means to an end? Why do you care?

[Knock on door]

Ric: Who is it?

Cameron: You sound nervous.

Ric: Well, I've had a few visitors today. I'm glad you could make it, Dr. Lewis.

Cameron: I'm aware of the situation.

Ric: I'm sure Ms. Jensen filled you in?

Cameron: Yeah. I don't think I can help.

Ric: I was planning on letting Carly go.

Cameron: But you didn't.

Ric: Look, Alcazar grabbed her, ok? That wasn't my fault. I didn't hurt Carly. I wasn't thinking clearly. My wife had miscarried, and I blamed my brother. I'd made a terrible decision, and I realized how wrong I had been. Haven't you ever done that?

Cameron: We all have.

Ric: Look, if you can't convince a jury that I wasn't sane when all of this happened, I'm as good as dead.

Carly: How long is this going to take?

Mac: The more detailed the statement, the stronger the case.

Carly: Fine. Let's just get it over with.

Sonny: What are you doing here?

Mac: I'm here to get Carly's statement about everything Ric did to her.

Carly: You know, on second thought, I am pretty tired. Why don't I just come down to the police station and give you the report then tomorrow.

Sonny: No, no, no, you don't have to protect me. I want to hear what happened.

Carly: Yeah, but it doesn't have to be tonight.

Sonny: Well, no. Give Mac the statement while it's still fresh in your head. We'll get through this. I'll stay here with you. We'll move on. Ok?

Mac: Ok, you ready? Statement from Carly Corinthos regarding charges pending against Ric Lansing. Now, just start at the beginning. Ric met you outside Queen of Angels Church on the night of June 13?

Carly: Yes. I was Matron of Honor at my sister-in-law Courtney's wedding. Our son, Michael, was the ring bearer. He had dropped the rings. He couldn't find them, so I went upstairs to help him. It didn't take long, but we were still late getting back to the church. So we were walking back into the church, and someone grabbed me. They put something over my face. I was worried for the baby, and then he whispered, "I'm taking you home."

[Carly screams]

Ric: Shh.

[Muffled screams]

Ric: Shh, shh, shh.

Carly: When I woke up, Ric was standing over me. He said, "welcome home." I tried to get up. He threw me back down.

Mac: On the floor?

Carly: No, on -- on a cot. There was a crib in the room, and I was screaming and screaming. You should have seen his face. He was so happy. He was so proud of himself. And he just told me no one could hear me.

Carly: No!

Ric: Shh, shh, shh, shh. Carly --

Carly: No!

Ric: Calm down. Calm down.

Carly: No!

Lorenzo: How did Courtney get on deck?

Man: The storm damaged the boat.

Lorenzo: And you allowed her to jump off?

Man: We tried to stop her.

Lorenzo: You didn't shoot?

Man: We did.

Lorenzo: Did you hit her?

Man: I don't know.

Lorenzo: Well, find her. Get boats in the water. Search the shoreline. Courtney's no good to me dead.

Doctor: No, lie back, lie back. You almost drowned.

Courtney: They were shooting at me. The water was so cold.
