General Hospital Transcript Wednesday 9/3/03
Proofread by Kathy
Stefan: Bad news?
Alexis: One of my chaperoned visits with Kristina. Ned sent it to me.
Stefan: How magnanimous of him.
Alexis: I met with Scott and the judge about the tapes that Nikolas sent to the police.
Stefan: Well, it was a forgery. Lucky obviously spliced that tape together to make me appear guilty.
Alexis: Well, it worked for you, because it will be inadmissible in court because you were taped without your knowledge of being taped. However, there is enough evidence there to bind you over for trial, and the judge has denied you bail.
Stefan: That's absurd.
Alexis: You admitted on the tape that you sent Darius out to kill Emily and killed Summer, instead. If you have an explanation, I'd love to hear it.
Stefan: All right. I'm being blackmailed.
[Knock on door]
Andy: Detective Capelli, PCPD.
Lydia: What do you want?
Lucky: We have a search warrant.
Lucky: I've been assigned to observe this case under Detective Capelli.
Lydia: Oh, God, that's right. You're an academy cadet. So, what are you looking for?
Andy: Evidence that connects Stefan Cassadine to Summer Holloway's murder.
Lydia: I've already got a taped confession.
Lucky: It's inadmissible evidence.
Lydia: You're kidding me.
Lucky: I wish I were. So we need more.
Andy: Why don't you start here, all right? I'll take a look upstairs.
Lydia: What if there isn't any more evidence?
Lucky: Well, see, I have a better question. Where the hell do you think you're going?
Carly: I was just coming over to see how Emily's doing.
Jason: The doctors don't think she's going to wake up.
Carly: Jason, I'm so sorry. I'm glad that I convinced Courtney to go to the hospital and find you then. I know that I should have stayed out of it, but I just -- I figured you'd need some company.
Jason: Thanks for thinking of me.
Jason: You know, I don't get to tell you a lot, but thank you.
Carly: I know how much Emily loves you and how much you love her. It's how much I love you, Jason. I'm sorry. Talk to you later?
Carly: I'll be here.
Courtney: Morning. Did you just get in?
Jason: No. I came in last night.
Alan: Nikolas stayed here all night, just to be close to Em.
Monica: I just -- I just wish there was some way I could will that girl just to live.
Alan: What are we going to do without her? What are we going to do?
Nikolas: Emily? Emily, where are you? Emily! Emily? Emily?
Nikolas: Emily, it's me. No. No, no, no, don't leave. Don't leave. Don't leave. I love you. I love you.
Zander: Emily. Hey. You came back to me.
Alexis: If Darius is blackmailing you, why would he use Lydia as a go-between?
Stefan: That's a good question. Worth exploring. Lydia brought up the subject of the murder, so I knew she was up to something. I was trying to draw her out.
Alexis: I doubt Scott will believe that. I don’t.
Stefan: Alexis, I'm not lying to you. I did not order Emily's murder.
Alexis: Then why did you tell Lydia that you did?
Stefan: A better question would be, why would I speak so openly to Lydia of all people? You know me, Alexis. I err on the side of caution. If I ordered someone's murder, I wouldn't speak of it to anyone. I was manipulating her, trying to draw her out. Unfortunately, I miscalculated, and now a fabrication of the moment is being used against me.
Alexis: I need more to go on.
Stefan: Well, then find it.
Alexis: It may be difficult.
Stefan: My new little niece -- she's lovely. I know how much you want your daughter back, Alexis. You've asked me to deliver her. I cannot do that unless you secure my release.
Jason: I saw Carly in the hall. She said that you went to the hospital to find me.
Jason: But I didn't see you there.
Courtney: I looked for you. I just -- I thought that it might be better if I didn't intrude, so I came back here. I tried to be there for you, but --
Jason: I was in the chapel. I mean, I didn't know -- I didn't know where else to go.
Courtney: You said a prayer?
Jason: Yeah, and Elizabeth was there, and, you know, she was really upset, and we talked about Emily for a little while, and I just -- I took her to her grandma's house.
Courtney: I know how special Emily is to you.
Jason: You know, when I woke up after the accident, you know, all these people came, came to visit me, and they said they were my family, and they wanted me to remember them, and -- and I couldn’t. And then this little girl with brown hair walked in. She brought me flowers, and I remember asking her, "Am I supposed to know who you are"? And she said, "Probably not." She said she was my sister, but only technically because she'd been adopted a year ago. You know? I mean, maybe it was because she wasn't expecting anything from me, but I got along better with Emily than anybody in that house. And then when I went away, she would hate it, but she'd never say anything. She just kissed me goodbye and -- and let me go. And that's what I tried to do for her.
Jason: Hello. How is she? When? No, no, no, no, I'll be right there. Thanks, Ned. Emily woke up.
Courtney: Oh, Jason, that's wonderful.
Jason: It's great. I need to go see her, okay? I'll be back as soon as I can.
Courtney: You want me --
Jason: I'll be right back.
Monica: Well, Em, your fever has broken, and all your vital signs are up.
Ned: Thank God.
A.J.: Yeah, you beat the odds, Em.
Edward: Of course she did. She's a Quartermaine.
Alan: You're not out of the woods yet, but it's really encouraging. Somebody's prayers were answered.
Ned: That would be me.
Edward: No, and me.
Emily: See, you can all agree on something.
Monica: So, you will all agree on getting out now because she needs to rest. Okay? Out. Out, out.
Georgie: Bye, Emily.
Dillon: Bye, guys.
Alan: We'll be close by if you need us.
Emily: Thanks, Dad.
Edward: We love you, dearie.
Emily: And I love you, too.
Zander: I knew you'd make it. I just -- I just knew.
Emily: Thank you for believing when I couldn't, Zander.
Nikolas: What happened?
Monica: Emily's awake.
Nikolas: I had a dream about her. She was dying.
Monica: Well, it came fairly close, but her fever's broken and she seems to be getting stronger.
Nikolas: Can I go see her?
Emily: It was like being in two places at once. I -- I saw my mom and my dad, and they were crying, and then I started drifting away.
Zander: What happened?
Emily: And I was a bride, and I had a kind of veil on my face, and I was surrounded by light, at first, but then the light kept getting smaller and fainter. Maybe it was going away, and then I was going with it. And right before the light went out --
Emily: A kiss. That -- that was what brought me back.
Zander: I kissed you in your dream?
Emily: Yeah, and -- and after you did, then I woke up.
Elizabeth: Hey, Nikolas, we just heard the news.
Nikolas: Yeah, yeah, her fever broke. She made it through.
Elizabeth: That's great, that's great. Do you think we can go see her?
Nikolas: Yeah, I'm sure she'd like that.
Elizabeth: Good. Come on.
Gia: Yeah, okay.
[Knock on door]
Carly: I heard Jason leave. I'm sorry. How'd things go at the hospital last night?
Courtney: Jason was in the chapel with Elizabeth, and they had their arms around each other.
Carly: Well, Elizabeth and Emily are best friends. I'm sure that Elizabeth just needed some comfort, and so did he.
Courtney: Well, he got it from Elizabeth.
Carly: Courtney, that's all it is.
Courtney: Carly, it just seemed a lot more intimate than that, okay? It just burns me to see Jason with Elizabeth. I want to be the one who helps him, who he confides in and leans on, but, no, then she --
Carly: Okay, you know what? No, no, no, no, no, don't, don't, don't go there. Courtney, if you do this, if you continue this train of thought, than you're going to ruin the best thing that ever happened to both of you.
Stefan: Well, have you reconsidered your actions? Come to offer support?
Nikolas: Is that what you expect?
Stefan: It's what I deserve. I devoted my life to you, and I would think you'd be sorry for trying to put me in prison for murder.
Nikolas: I did what I thought was necessary, okay?
Stefan: You know, I would have expected this from an enemy, but from you, Nikolas, the one person I truly love and would do anything for --
Nikolas: Oh, yeah? Like what? Like kill Emily?
Stefan: I'm innocent.
Nikolas: I heard the tape.
Stefan: You heard what Lucky Spencer wanted you to hear.
Nikolas: I know your voice. You meant every word of it.
Stefan: Nikolas, I was -- I was deceiving Lydia, who in turn was trying to deceive me.
Nikolas: Oh, for God's sake, a woman is dead here. Come on.
Stefan: And if you're not careful, you could be next.
Nikolas: I'll find a way to protect myself from your creditors.
Stefan: It's your wife whom you need protection from.
Lydia: I have to get out of Port Charles.
Lydia: Maybe because Stefan has a nasty habit of killing people who get in his way. And tricking him into a murder confession on tape just made me number one on his hit parade.
Lucky: Lydia -- Lydia, all this is going to do is make you look guilty. You'll be playing right into Stefan's hands, and he will have everyone convinced that you were more guilty in doing this than you claim.
Lydia: Everyone, including you? So, do you think that I had more to do with Stefan's plan than I'm admitting?
Lucky: You tell me.
Lydia: I'm too much of a coward to plot a murder. I can lie and scheme with the best of them, but go to prison? I'd never take that risk.
Alexis: I'm Stefan's defense counsel. I need to ask you a few questions, Lydia.
Lucky: You claim you're my father's friend. You know he's innocent and Stefan is guilty, so why are you on Stefan's side?
Georgie: I think it's so romantic how you asked her to marry you, and then you guys got married in the same night.
Maxie: Yeah, so what are you guys going to do for your honeymoon?
Emily: Venice. I've always dreamed of going there on my honeymoon. The gondolas and the misty lights and the carnivals.
Zander: Someday, I promise.
Maxie: Well, hey, we should probably leave them be.
Georgie: Yeah, good idea.
Emily: Thanks for coming by.
Dillon: Take it easy, guys.
Georgie: Hey, no problem.
Georgie: See you guys later.
Maxie: I think it's great how they're being so positive about everything, you know?
Georgie: I just can't wait till they go to Venice. It's going to be so romantic.
Dillon: Have you guys ever seen "It's a Wonderful Life"?
Maxie: What does a Christmas movie have to do with anything?
Dillon: Come with me and maybe you'll find out. Come on, help me with this.
Zander: We'll stay in Venice as long as you want.
Emily: Kiss on the Bridge of Sighs.
Zander: You're serious? What is this?
Emily: There really is this bridge in Venice, and it's called the Bridge of Sighs, and it's dedicated to lovers.
Zander: Well, we are way beyond lovers. We're husband and wife. For better, for worse.
Jason: I'm so glad you're feeling better.
Emily: I decided I'd miss you too much, so I'm sticking around.
Zander: I'll be back later.
Zander: All right.
Jason: Wow, you look -- you look a lot stronger.
Emily: Yeah, I'm still a little scared. I came so close to dying, Jason, and I felt myself slipping away, but Nikolas brought me back. I dreamed he kissed me, and I opened my eyes and I saw him, and then I woke up.
Jason: Does Nikolas know about this?
Emily: No, and I can't tell him. But I still need you to keep him safe, Jason.
Jason: I promised. I promised you I will. But have to tell me what kind of trouble he's in.
Emily: All right, Nikolas' Uncle Stefan borrowed a lot of money, and the creditors are threatening to kill Nikolas if he doesn't pay it back.
Jason: That's all you know?
Emily: Stefan pushed Nikolas into getting married to Lydia, and Nikolas is supposed to get this huge inheritance if he and Lydia produce a child.
Jason: But the lender doesn't want to wait that long?
Emily: I guess not.
Jason: Okay, if I get Nikolas out of this, he's going to be free to bail on his marriage. Where does that leave you?
Alexis: When did you first become suspicious of Stefan?
Lydia: The night that Summer died. I walked in on him cursing Darius for killing the wrong woman. And when I confronted Stefan about it, he threatened me, so I kept quiet.
Alexis: What about the blackmail call from Darius?
Lydia: There's not much to tell. He asked me to warn Stefan that if he didn't get a million dollars he'd go to the police and tell them the truth, that Stefan ordered him to push Emily off a cliff, but he got Summer by mistake.
Alexis: You need to be careful, Lydia. Perjury can result in prison time. You can also be charged as an accessory after the fact.
Lucky: What is this? Scare tactics? You're trying to get Lydia to back off, even disappear? Well, she won't, and I'll stand right behind her.
Nikolas: Lydia's not a threat to me.
Stefan: Oh, Nikolas, she's capable of much more than you realize. Now, you've proven to be uncooperative, there's a good chance you'll never produce an heir, and worst of all, you're hopelessly in love with another woman. You know, Lydia could still lose everything unless you were to die, in which case she could sue for control of her grandfather's estate.
Nikolas: I don't believe that she would commit murder.
Stefan: Nikolas, don't you find it odd that Darius contacted me as well as her? You know, if I'm guilty of anything, it's bringing that viper to Wyndemere and throwing her at you. You are more vulnerable and alone than you've ever been. I am the only one who can protect you, and I'm helpless to do so in here.
Guard: Time's up.
Stefan: Nikolas, do you hear me? You need to be careful. Nikolas? Nikolas?
Emily: Zander's done so much for me, Jason. He's been loving and he's been loyal and he's been incredibly forgiving.
Jason: Emily, I don't -- I don't care about Zander right now. I care about you.
Emily: I can handle anything as long as I know Nikolas is safe. He saved my life, Jason. Now it's my turn to save his.
Zander: Thanks for being at the wedding. Thanks for wishing us well.
Gia: I like you, Zander. It's good to see you happy.
Zander: I put you through some rough times.
Gia: Hey, hey, hey, forget about it, okay? We're friends, right? I totally expect to impose on you one day.
Edward: Excuse me. Young man, we -- we need to discuss this marriage that Emily's family was left out of, hmm?
Emily: What do you know? Both brothers in the same room. This is a good day.
A.J.: Yeah, it's a very good day if you're feeling better.
Jason: Yeah, I'll come by again soon.
Emily: Okay, thanks for everything.
Emily: Ooh, hey, wait, wait. Could you guys just say hi to each other? You don't have to bond or anything. Just acknowledge each other's existence.
Jason: What's up?
Jason: It's great that Emily's feeling better.
A.J.: Yeah, yeah. Mom and Dad -- they say it's a miracle. Way to go, Em.
Emily: Well, I had a lot of help and a lot of love from everyone, including both of my brothers.
Jason: Yeah, well, I'll just leave you guys alone.
Emily: Thanks for doing that.
A.J.: You know, I -- I still miss him, sometimes. But you know what? I'm just glad -- I'm so glad that I don't have to miss you.
Carly: Jason loves you, and even if Elizabeth does want him, it's not going to happen.
Courtney: Carly, there is just -- there's this strain, this thing between Jason and me right now. It's like we want to be able to get back to normal, but we just don't know how to get there.
Carly: Well, the two of you have suffered a great loss. It's going to take some time before you can get past it.
Courtney: Yeah, but what if -- I mean, what if this strain that we have on us, what if it pushes him into the arms of someone he feels he can confide in or someone who can give him something that I can't?
Carly: Like what?
Courtney: Like a child.
Carly: Okay. Courtney, you need to stop this, because if you keep thinking this way, it's just going to spiral out of control. It's not good for you.
Courtney: Carly, I don't want to be blindsided if Jason starts to drift away, okay?
Carly: All right. You need to go to Jason. When he comes back tonight, you need to tell him the truth. Tell him you're upset. He's going to understand.
Carly: Oh, I'm sorry. Are you still hurting still?
Courtney: Yeah. My neck and my shoulders are still killing me.
Carly: Yeah, well, take it easy, okay?
Courtney: Yeah. I'll try.
Carly: Lay off the coffee. I'll check on you later.
Edward: I -- I want my granddaughter to hear all of this.
Emily: Yeah, what's going on?
Edward: Emily, you and Zander married on a spur of the moment with not one member of your family present.
Emily: Grandfather, I'm sorry, but I've already explained this to Mom, and she said that --
Edward: Just -- just listen, young lady, just listen. Your illness has shown me a side of Zander that I never knew existed. Did you know that he waited with us and he prayed with us? He fought for you, and he encouraged you to fight for yourself. I really think he -- he helped save your life, because he gave you something to look forward to. And that's -- that's good enough for me. So welcome to the family, Zander.
Zander: I don't really know what to say.
Edward: A thank-you would be a good start.
Zander: Well, thanks, Granddad.
Edward: No, "Mr. Quartermaine" will do just fine, son.
Emily: Hey, Grandfather.
Emily: That was the nicest thing you've ever said to me.
Edward: You get some rest, little lady.
Zander: How are you feeling?
Emily: Better by the minute.
Dillon: [Italian accent] When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie it's amore
Emily: Oh, my God, what is that?
Gia: I don't know. But I don't think you have to worry. It's definitely not angels singing.
Zander: What is this? Oh, my God.
Gia: Listen to that.
Zander: Oh, my God.
Dillon: How you doing? Why don't you get up here and we're going to take you on a nice little gondola ride for your -- for your -- your thing, you know, your honeymoon. Get up here! Come on, what I tell you? Get up here.
Lydia: How's Emily?
Nikolas: Her fever's broken. She's still suffering from meningitis and the cancer, but, you know, she's getting stronger.
Lydia: Well, that's great news.
Nikolas: Okay, once more, with feeling.
Lydia: Nikolas, I don't know what you're upset about.
Nikolas: Emily married Zander last night. Okay, so our happy little union is still secure. It could be worse, however, if my uncle pays for something that he didn't do.
Lydia: Of course Stefan did it.
Nikolas: He says he was framed, Lydia, that you were the one behind the murder attempt on Emily.
Alexis: I spoke to Lydia. She said she saw you dismiss Darius for killing the wrong person, and then later you threatened her into silence.
Stefan: What do you expect her to say? She's framing me. You know, I've been thinking, I doubt that Darius acted alone. He must have conspired with Lydia. And if he's the real killer, perhaps you could broker a deal with him, offer him a lesser sentence for naming Lydia as his partner. All you have to do is find him.
[Knock on door]
Elizabeth: Hi. Is Jason here? I really need to speak with him.
Courtney: He's out. Did you try his phone?
Elizabeth: Yes, but his cell was turned off, and I have great news about Emily. I just wanted to tell him.
Courtney: Yeah, I know what you want, Elizabeth.
Stefan: What exactly are you refusing to do?
Alexis: Trace the events. Darius disappears, his death is reported, and then he suddenly emails you and calls Lydia. But once Lydia gets you on tape, the blackmail stops without Darius ever contacting you in person. Why do you think that is?
Stefan: You believe Lydia invented the blackmail.
Alexis: My guess is that Lucky and Lydia used Darius' name as a ruse to try to get you to talk on tape, to rattle you. It's called entrapment, and it could get this case thrown out of court.
Stefan: No, the police will simply manufacture more evidence and file charges again unless someone else is arrested.
Alexis: It isn't going to be Luke.
Stefan: No. I was thinking of the person who's been behind this all along -- Lydia.
Lydia: Nikolas, this is crazy. I wouldn't intentionally hurt you.
Nikolas: Don't you think it's a little late to pretend you have feelings for me?
Lydia: Don't say that. We need to stick together.
Nikolas: Yeah, well, what I need is the truth. Was it my uncle's plan to kill Emily, yours, or both?
Lucky: Wait, wait, you get your hands off of her.
Edward: You know, when Emily is fully recovered, I want to plan a big wedding reception.
Monica: Well, fine. We'll ask Emily who she'd like to invite.
Edward: Well, we'll draw up our guest list, of course.
Ned: Grandfather, the cream of Port Charles society probably isn't Emily's idea of a warm and loving gathering.
Edward: I want to show off my beautiful granddaughter. What's so wrong with that, huh?
Dillon: [Italian accent] When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie that's amore la-la-la-la when the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine that's amore da-da-dee-da-da da-da-da-da ting-a-ling-a-ling ting-a-ling-a-ling and the telephone will ring that's amore
Edward: The first one who admits that he just saw that has to go deal with it.
Monica: I think we should have hors d'oeuvres and a buffet.
Alan: And a cake.
Ned: A full band.
A.J.: That's right. Em loves to dance.
Edward: Um –
[Dillon hums "That's Amore"]
Maxie: Right here, right here. Whoops.
Dillon: Last stop, honeymoon suite.
Georgie: Are you ready?
Zander: Oh, here.
Georgie: Oh. That's right. Thank you.
Zander: Thank you.
Georgie: Thank you.
Maxie: Ready? And surprise!
Zander: Oh, my --
Dillon: You couldn't go to Venice, so we brought Venice to you.
Zander: Oh, my God.
Maxie: So, what do you think?
Emily: I -- I love it. Who would have guessed a hospital room could look so --
Emily: No, it's beautiful and romantic and exotic.
Zander: You guys are amazing. Where'd you get all this stuff?
Maxie: We're some good shoppers.
Georgie: Yeah, that and we raided the high school drama department.
Dillon: So, you guys need anything else or --
Georgie: You -- ah!
Dillon: When the moon hits your eye like a big
Zander: Hey, happy honeymoon, wife.
Emily: Same to you, husband.
[Dillon hums "That's Amore"]
Maxie: Oh, okay. You know what? The neighbor's cat has a better voice than that.
Dillon: You're just jealous, senorita.
Maxie: Yeah, and you're just delusional, okay?
Georgie: You do realize that is the most romantic thing ever.
Dillon: Fantastico is what it was.
Georgie: But do you realize what could even make it better? Stop singing.
Dillon: [Normal voice] That's amore.
Courtney: You know, there are other ways of contacting Jason that don't include coming to his house.
Elizabeth: Yeah, just tell him that I stopped by, okay?
Courtney: Why don't you just admit that you want him back?
Elizabeth: Oh, what?
Courtney: Come on, Elizabeth. I mean, Ric turned out to be just as sick and twisted as I warned you he would be --
Courtney: And now you want to steal Jason away from me, and it's not going to --
Jason: What's going on?
>> This week on "General Hospital" --
Faith: I hear you were having a great relaxing time with your good friend Lorenzo.
Ric: What if I'm able to help get rid of Alcazar permanently? Would that be enough for you to strike a truce with me?
Man: She's in the park.
Lorenzo: Care to indulge in a guilty pleasure?
