General Hospital Transcript Friday 9/12/03
Proofread by Doris
Ned: This whole setup reeks of Stefan.
Skye: Why would he arrange to have a teenage girl show up in your room, unless he was doing it for Alexis?
Ned: No, she's not that vindictive.
Skye: She's desperate to get Kristina back.
Ned: No. No, no, no. This is all Stefan. He's acting on her behalf.
Skye: Oh, he's just helping her out of the goodness of his heart?
Ned: Stefan and Alexis have had their differences, but they're still very close.
Skye: I don't know why you find it so hard to believe that Alexis is capable of this. I mean, look at the lengths that she's gone to already.
Cindy: Eddie, it's me, Cindy.
Ned: How did you get this number?
Cindy: Please. Please, I need to see you. I'm at the Port Charles hotel, room 212.
Ned: I'll be right over there.
Skye: Let me guess. Your oversexed groupie hasn't quite given up on you.
Dillon: I'm serious. I mean, Faith is, like, out to kill Georgie. She made me give her an alibi for this whole hit-and-run thing by saying I slept with her.
Lorenzo: Yeah, Faith threatened your girlfriend to get you to cooperate.
Dillon: Yeah. Now she's looking for her. I mean, that's why she sent those two thugs to get me to say where she was.
Lorenzo: Give me a good reason why I should help you.
Dillon: Because I'll pay you back.
Lorenzo: I don't need money.
Dillon: I'm not talking about money. I mean I'll work for you. You know, I'll do whatever you want. You name the job, I am there, I swear.
Lorenzo: All right. I'll keep you and Georgie safe.
Dillon: Thank you. I really appreciate this. Where should we meet you?
Lorenzo: My apartment. I'll figure out a way to pacify Faith.
Dillon: You're not going to regret this.
Lorenzo: I don't plan to. You want one of my men to go with you?
Dillon: That's ok. I've got her in a safe place.
Man: What are you doing in my barn?
Georgie: I was just on my way home, and I stopped to rest.
Man: You've been hitchhiking?
Georgie: Well, yeah.
Man: All by yourself?
Georgie: I'm sorry for trespassing. I'm just going --
Man: Oh, no, no. Not so fast.
Nurse: Now you have to --
Elizabeth: You made a mistake.
Nurse: The doctor --
Elizabeth: I don't care what the doctor said, I don't need special training for being blind, ok? I am going to get my sight back.
Nurse: But in case you don't --
Elizabeth: No, no in case! I'm not giving up!
Nurse: Would you like me to see if the doctor's available?
Elizabeth: Yeah, I would like to see the doctor. Just get him in here.
(outside of Elizabeth's room)
Maxie: She's really having a tough time, huh?
Ric: She shouldn't have to go through this after everything that she's been through.
Maxie: Well, maybe you could go talk to her.
Ric: No, she doesn't want to have anything to do with me. But there is something that I can do.
Carly: Corey, can you tell Sonny that I had to take care of something, that I'll see him later? Thanks.
Carly: Hey. When did you guys get home?
Courtney: Well, we just dropped our bags off at the penthouse, and we came straight here.
Carly: How was your trip?
Carly: Oh, I like the way that sounds. Hey.
Sonny: Hey. Welcome home. You should have called and let us know you were coming.
Courtney: Well, Jason and I -- we decided to shut the rest of the world out and just be together. It's just what we needed.
Jason: Until we got back.
Carly: What happened?
Courtney: Well, my car got stolen while we were gone.
Man: My brother-in-law is the sheriff. Maybe I should give him a call. Get him out here to press charges.
Georgie: I didn't touch anything. I just rested.
Man: This barn is a half a mile from the highway. What are you doing?
Georgie: I -- I was just, you know, walking, and I saw this place.
Man: Oh, sweetheart, you are one rotten liar.
Georgie: I'm just going to get back on the road.
Man: Without showing me how grateful you are?
Stefan: What do you want, Commissioner?
Mac: I have an offer for you.
Stefan: Speak to my attorney.
Mac: Why go through the red tape, Stefan? Read it.
Stefan: This is a statement.
Mac: It's your full confession to the attempted murder of Emily Quartermaine, which resulted in the death of Summer Halloway.
Stefan: I had nothing to do with that poor woman's misfortune. Why would I sign this?
Mac: Because if you do, you'll only get 20 years instead of forever. Think of it as a new lease on life.
[Knock on door]
Skye: Try again.
Cindy: I thought --
Skye: You thought that Ned would fall right into your little trap. Well, there's been a change of plans.
Cindy: He called and --
Skye: Listen up, you little tramp. Your little ploy is so obvious, it's insulting, ok? You thought you'd get Ned here, cry rape, and then cause such a scandal that it would cause him to lose custody of his child.
Cindy: You don't understand. I'm not --
Skye: Well, you tell Alexis there's no way in hell I'll let her get away with this, ok?
Cindy: I don't know any Alexis. You've got this all wrong.
Skye: Do I really?
Cindy: Eddie's been stalking me.
Carly: Your car got stolen?
Courtney: Yeah, well, at least it was insured. Anyway, that's not important. What matters is while we were away, I had a chance to calm down and look at the way I've been acting, and I think I owe both of you an apology.
Sonny: You don't have to apologize for hurting.
Courtney: Yeah, but there was more going on with me. Anyway, I told Jason about it at the island, and I think that you both deserve to know, too.
Carly: What is it?
Courtney: After I injured my neck and my shoulder, the doctor prescribed me some pain pills, and I took more than I should have, and not just for the pain in my shoulder. But for some reason, I thought it would calm me down when really it just made me more out of control.
Carly: Courtney, I'm so sorry. I knew something was wrong, and I should have asked.
Courtney: No, Carly, come on. You did. I didn't even know myself. It just kind of snuck up on me.
Sonny: Well, you know, if you need help getting off the pills, we'll set you up with a doctor, whatever you need.
Courtney: No, really, I'm all right now. I am. Jason and I -- we talked about it. I threw out the rest of the pills. I just -- I wanted to explain. I mean, that's part of the reason I was so out there.
Carly: Well, I'm glad that it's over now.
Courtney: Yeah, me, too.
Carly: Jason, I assume you called Emily while you were away?
Jason: Yeah, those were the only calls that I made, actually.
Carly: Did she tell you that Elizabeth is in the hospital?
Jason: No. What? Why? What happened?
Carly: She was the victim of a hit-and-run.
Courtney: Do they know who did it?
Sonny: Well, last I heard, Faith Rosco was a prime suspect.
Courtney: We should go see her. God, I was awful to her last time she tried to visit Jason. I owe her an apology. I think she'd like a visit from you, too.
Jason: Yeah, ok. Check in with you later?
Sonny: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Sonny: See you guys.
Courtney: See you later.
Carly: You know what? I'm exhausted.
Sonny: You've had a long day.
Carly: I think maybe I should just go.
Sonny: All right, let's go.
Carly: You know what? You don't have to come if you don't want to, if you've got business you need to finish and stuff. What do you want?
Ric: I need to speak to your husband.
Sonny: Well, can you see I'm busy right now, Ric, or not?
Ric: It's a matter of mutual importance.
Carly: You know, I'm just -- I'm going to go. Talk to you later, ok?
Sonny: All right.
Ric: I need your help.
Sonny: Well, I'm the wrong person to ask, Ric.
Ric: Well, I don't think you're going to have a problem with this. Faith Rosco needs to die.
Man: Oh, what is a hot, pretty, young thing like you doing out by herself?
Georgie: Let go of me!
Man: Oh, no. You go looking for trouble, sugar, you going to find it.
Dillon: FBI Freeze. You can step back, sir. I'll take it from here.
Man: FBI? What the heck?
Dillon: This girl is in violation of public code. I'm here to take her into custody.
Man: Are you kidding? She's just a kid.
Dillon: Oh, no. No, she's not. Don't let that girl-next-door look fool you.
Man: What did she do?
Dillon: Have you ever heard of Lorenzo Alcazar?
Dillon: International crime lord, drug dealer, recently moved his product upstate New York and into parts of New England.
Man: Well, what -- what's he got to do with her?
Dillon: Oh, well, this "girl" here is one of his runners. Picked her up when she was 12 years old. She's been dealing drugs for him ever since.
Mac: It's a good deal, Stefan. Better than you deserve.
Stefan: Then why offer it at all, unless you don't have a case?
Mac: We've got your full confession on tape.
Stefan: That's not a confession, and we both know it. It's inadmissible in court.
Mac: We've got Lydia's testimony in addition to Nikolas. He had a lot to say about how strongly you opposed his engagement to Emily, and he'll make a compelling witness. Stefan, do you really want to die in a prison infirmary? Aristocrats like yourself -- they don't do well without the finer things in life, like a toilet with walls.
Stefan: My answer is no.
Mac: You have been like a father to Nikolas. Why put him through the hell of testifying against you?
Stefan: Nikolas is confused. Lucky is clouding his judgment with lies.
Mac: Well, it looks like Alexis has abandoned you, as well. You're all alone, Stefan. You've got nothing left.
Stefan: You'd be surprised, Commissioner. I can be quite resourceful under pressure.
Skye: Ned's been stalking you?
Cindy: He's scaring me.
Skye: Then why would you come to his room half-naked and climb into his bed?
Cindy: Because I thought it'd be exciting to sleep with a rock star. But the minute Eddie came through that door, I realized I had been living in a fantasy world. Eddie was this real, breathing man, and I didn't even know him. No way I was ready to have sex with him. I'm glad he kicked me out. The whole thing was a huge, huge mistake.
Skye: Still is.
Cindy: Look, I just want to be out of this, ok? But Eddie's been hounding me ever since that night. He won't leave me alone.
Skye: Well, that doesn't exactly explain your wardrobe choice.
Cindy: He told me to come here, to wear something sexy, and wait for him.
Skye: Oh, what happened to the "I'm not ready to have sex with him" line?
Cindy: He's really hard to say no to. He's called me at least 30 times, you know, telling me how hot I am, how much he can do for my career.
Skye: Oh, please.
Cindy: I do want a singing career. And I don't know, maybe -- maybe Eddie can help me. A lot of girls get started this way, right? Maybe -- maybe I should feel flattered.
Skye: You know what? I don't want to burst your bubble, but I was there when Ned got the little phone call from you.
Cindy: He told me to call him when I was ready for him. I figured if I just --
Skye: You know what? Maybe you really should skip the singing because you've got a real flair for the drama.
Cindy: I'm not lying.
Skye: Hey, look, just stay away from Ned! You hear me? Do not call him, do not go near him, don't email him, just stay away from him, or you are going to be very sorry.
Cindy: Eddie's the one who's been after me, I swear! Check the phone records!
Sonny: You want Faith Rosco dead? After all the times she stood up for you, hmm? Loyalty's not one of your priorities is it?
Ric: Faith set me up, all right? You saw my car. My headlight was smashed. She was the one who did it. Forensics couldn't come up with anything. I don't want this woman walking around so that she's free to do it again. Look, you hate this bitch as much as I do, and you can make this sort of thing disappear.
Sonny: I'm not doing your dirty work for you, Ric.
Ric: She has done -- she's more damage to you over the years, and having her gone would be good for you, too.
Sonny: You've made deals with Scott Baldwin before. How do I know this is not another setup so that way he can --
Ric: All I want is Faith gone! You want to take care of this or not? Because if you don't, I'll find somebody else.
Sonny: Here's your chance.
Elizabeth: I am not blind!
Maxie: Ok, they didn't say that you were.
Elizabeth: Then why is everyone treating me as if I'll never see again?
Maxie: I'm going to go get the nurse, ok?
Elizabeth: No, no, no, no. Don't get the nurse. Get the doctor. I want to know what's going on.
(outside of Elizabeth's room)
Courtney: God. I feel so bad for Elizabeth.
Jason: I don't blame her. I mean, there's nothing worse than being stuck in a hospital.
Courtney: Look, maybe you should go in alone. I might make things worse.
Elizabeth: I don't want to hear that he's just taking precautions. I want to know when I'm going to see again, ok?
Maxie: Ok, I'll go try and find him, all right?
Jason: I just heard what happened? You mind that I'm here? Or do you want to be alone?
Elizabeth: No, no. Come in. I've got to warn you, I'm not exactly a model patient right now. I can't seem to get a straight answer out of anyone, and I don't understand why people just can't be honest.
Jason: Well, they -- they probably don't have the answers yet. They don't want to admit it, or they think that the truth is going to scare you.
Elizabeth: Ok, but how can I figure out what I'm going to do if I don't know all the facts about my condition?
Jason: I understand, but for what it's worth, yelling and throwing things aren't going to make them listen. I've tried it. I've tried it a lot, and they're just going to say that you're overemotional and ignore you, and if you don't shut up, they're going to give you a sedative. I'm just --
Elizabeth: Ok, that's the last thing I want.
Jason: Yeah, I figured.
Elizabeth: So I guess I better practice on being calm while I wait to hear if I'm ever going to see again.
Jason: Do you remember what happened?
Elizabeth: Mm-hmm. I was -- I was just walking home, you know, thinking about Ric, wondering why I couldn't see all the signs, and I had just thrown away this flyer for my art show that he had given me, and then I started to cross the street. Suddenly, I see the headlights. They were just coming straight towards me. I couldn't -- I couldn't get out of the way before the car just slammed into me.
Carly: What the hell is this about?
Lorenzo: That's Courtney's car.
Carly: Yeah, I know. How did you get that picture?
Lorenzo: It's not important right now.
Carly: Courtney told me that her car was stolen when she was out of town.
Lorenzo: Did she also mention she's the one who ran down Elizabeth Lansing?
Dillon: This girl has been eluding FBI Agents for months -- hiding out, taking back alleys.
Georgie: I've been covering my tracks. How the hell did you find me?
Dillon: You placed a call to an underground informant to get transportation to Canada. We tapped her phone lines.
Man: You know, I did think there was something fishy about her.
Dillon: Good instincts, sir. We respect that you're doing your civic duty.
Man: Well, I try to be a good citizen.
Dillon: And the FBI thanks you.
Dillon: One moment. Guys, hey, call off the chopper. We don't need it. No, we've got her in the barn. Yeah, the owner seems to have cornered her. What? Oh, yeah. Yeah, I'll tell him. Mm-hmm. Good news, sir. Seems like the reward for her capture's been upped to $50,000.
Dillon: That's right. An agent will be contacting you within the hour to find out when and where you can pick up your reward.
Man: So should I go to my house?
Man: What about her?
Dillon: Hey, you've done your job. I'll take it from here. You've acted competently and courageously. We respect that, and we thank you. By the way, we might want to be putting you on "America's most wanted felons." Would you be up for that?
Man: Well, if I can help educate the public on the rewards of being a law-abiding citizen, I'd be more than glad to do my part.
Dillon: Couldn't have said it better myself. Thank you, sir.
Man: Maybe this will teach you crime doesn't pay.
Georgie: It's official -- you are a genius!
Sonny: Ric was just talking about you.
Faith: I'll bet. And if you don't mind, I would like to speak to Ric. I'd like to do it here, where there are witnesses.
Sonny: Oh, yeah. Suit yourself.
Faith: No, actually, could you stay? I don't want there to be any misunderstandings.
Sonny: Yeah, can you make it quick, though?
Faith: I wasn't driving the car that hit Elizabeth.
Ric: An eyewitness put you there, standing over her body right after the accident.
Faith: I was driving by in my car. I saw her lying in the street. I stopped to see if she was hurt, and then I walked away.
Sonny: It never occurred to you maybe to, like, help her out?
Faith: Why should I?
Ric: You left her in the street bleeding to death. That's --
Faith: You know that if Elizabeth died, that would be just fine with me, but I did not try to kill her.
Sonny: This time.
Faith: If you are looking for justice for Elizabeth, you're on the wrong track. I didn't hit her. Someone else did.
Elizabeth: The doctors don't know how long it'll take for my eyes to heal.
Jason: So you could be fine.
Elizabeth: I could be, and that's exactly why I got so upset when the nurse came in and told me I needed to start training for life as a blind person. I mean, it's as if she's telling me I need to give up.
Jason: I don't know if it's this way for you, but, you know, the doctors used to treat me like I was something broken they couldn't fix. All the tests they ran, all the therapy they made me do was to try and make up for them not being able to do something for my actual brain injury in the first place.
Elizabeth: Yes, that's exactly how I feel. The doctors don't want to admit that they don't have an answer, so they're just recommending rehab. But why start training if I'm going to get better in a few weeks, right?
Jason: Yeah, well, the thing is, you can't see right now. Maybe this nurse could teach you a few things that would make your life a lot easier until your vision returns. It might not be a bad idea.
Jason: Well, I'll let you get some rest.
Elizabeth: Thanks. Jason?
Elizabeth: Thank you.
Courtney: God, I feel so bad for her. I remember when I was in that hit-and-run and just that split second of terror when you realize the car's not going to stop, you know? At least when I woke up, I could see and I had you sitting --
Jason: What? What's wrong?
Courtney: Nothing. I just got the chills.
Lorenzo: I saw Courtney hit Elizabeth and keep going.
Carly: Oh, and you just happened to be there. What an amazing coincidence.
Lorenzo: I saw Courtney in the park before the accident. She was upset and emotional. She dropped a bottle of pills. She shouldn't have been driving at all. I followed her home to make sure she got there safely. A few minutes later, she hit Elizabeth.
Carly: How did you end up with Courtney's car?
Lorenzo: I stole it before the police could find it.
Carly: To protect her, I suppose.
Lorenzo: That's right.
Carly: Ok. Here's another scenario. You stole Courtney's car, and then you ran down Elizabeth yourself.
Lorenzo: Why would I do that?
Carly: To frame Courtney and gain leverage over Sonny.
Lorenzo: Sonny and I agreed to a truce.
Carly: You did it to get to me.
Lorenzo: You're half right. I'm protecting Courtney for your sake. I doubt she even knows she hit Elizabeth.
Carly: All right, Lorenzo, let's cut to the chase. What do you want?
Carly: Uh-uh. You don't do anything for nothing.
Lorenzo: How do you know?
Carly: Past experience. You even boasted about it. You are a businessman. Everything is a means to an end.
Lorenzo: Maybe I wanted to improve your opinion of me. Is that so terrible?
Carly: I love my husband. And you are trying to prove to Sonny that you can get to me. You are wrong. I don't want your help.
Lorenzo: Are you sure?
Carly: Listen, you want my gratitude? You tell me where the car is.
Lorenzo: What are you going to do?
Carly: It's not your business anymore.
Lorenzo: Look, if you tell Jason that Courtney was wrecked on pills and hit Elizabeth, how do you think he's going to react, hmm? What about Courtney when she finds out? You'll be putting both of them through hell.
Carly: You know, you don't give a damn about Courtney and Jason.
Lorenzo: Well, that's true, but you care. It was an accident. Elizabeth's going to be all right. Courtney never has to know. No one does.
Carly: Except you and me.
Lorenzo: I can dispose of the car for you.
Carly: No, I don't want you to do that. I will take care of this myself. Give me the keys and tell me where the car is.
Lorenzo: If you insist.
Carly: You aren't going to tell anyone about this.
Lorenzo: It'll be our secret.
Georgie: How did you think up all that stuff?
Dillon: I have no idea. I got that from, like -- I don't know -- 10 different movies.
Georgie: I love it. My 15 minutes of fame as a bad girl.
Dillon: And our perverted, weird, freaky farmer thinks you are a vicious criminal.
Georgie: Well, that bought us a little bit of time, but we've really got to get out of here.
Dillon: Uh-uh. Faith ain't going to touch you.
Georgie: What did you do?
Dillon: I went to Alcazar and I told him that I needed his help and I would do anything for him if he protected you.
Georgie: But what if he has more jobs for you?
Dillon: That doesn't matter. You know, I'll cross that bridge when I come to it, you know?
Georgie: Do you think he's going to hurt Faith?
Dillon: I don't know, but he did say something about pacifying her, and I don't know how fun that sounds, but I don't care. I mean, I really -- I really don't care. You're safe, and -- and that's all that matters to me right now.
Georgie: I'm really sorry for blowing everything with Mac. I should have -- I should have just trusted you when you asked me to shut my mouth.
Dillon: Well, that's fine. Everything's going to be all right.
Faith: Did you tell your little girlfriend about our agreement, Dillon? See, it went something like this -- you talk and you die.
Ric: Elizabeth seems calm.
Maxie: Yeah. Jason and Courtney stopped by. He went in and talked to her, and I think it cheered her up a bit.
Ric: What did he say?
Maxie: I'm not sure. I mean, I left, and they kept talking for a while, but she looks a little better, which is all that matters, right?
Ric: Yeah. I wish there was something that I could do.
Ned: Skye, what are you doing?
Skye: Waiting for you.
Ned: So, how did it go with Cindy at the hotel?
Skye: Well, she claims that you've been stalking her.
Ned: Of course. Of course she tried to turn this around. Luckily, she doesn't have a shred of evidence.
Skye: Well, that's what I thought -- till I found these.
Ned: What's this?
Skye: Phone bills. According to those, you've called Cindy over 30 times.
Courtney: When will Elizabeth know if she'll be able to see again?
Jason: Well, the doctors aren't sure, I think. I think that's the most frustrating part.
Courtney: Well, I'm glad you could help her. I mean, I don't like sharing, but I know she's been your friend.
Jason: Yeah, well, you know, she's got a lot to deal with, and she's still hurting from everything she went through with Ric.
Courtney: Yeah. And to top it off, she gets hit by a car. Maybe it really was Faith, you know? I can't imagine someone driving into her by accident and just taking off.
Jason: Yeah, well, the driver could have been scared or drunk. Who knows?
Courtney: And that's what happened to you, right? A.J. was drunk?
Jason: That's what they tell me.
Courtney: And here you are. Is it wrong to be grateful for an accident?
Jason: All I know is I wouldn't change anything. I never would have met you.
Courtney: I mean, it's hard to believe. If A.J. hadn't been drinking or if he had turned the other way, then everything would be different. One accident changed so many lives.
Ned: I never called this girl. Ok, this phone bill is a forgery.
Skye: It's not easy to forge a phone bill.
Ned: Ok, the girl in the park, the diary on our doorstep, ok, the emails, Cindy half-naked in my bed, and now this. Ok, the only person who is twisted enough to go to this extent is Stefan. He has the money, he has the resources, and he has the motive to help Alexis get Kristina back.
Skye: Well, the police might find that theory a bit of a stretch.
Ned: Skye, you believe me, don't you?
Skye: It doesn't matter what I believe.
Ned: No, it does to me. I am not stalking this girl. Ok, I'm being set up. Tell me you know that.
Skye: I do, ok? But it just looks bad.
Andy: Edward Lawrence Ashton?
Cindy: That's him. That's the man who raped me.
Maxie: How's that?
Elizabeth: Could you just turn it down a bit? I love this song. How did you know?
Maxie: I didn't.
Elizabeth: I danced to this song once with somebody I loved.
(Ric is looking on)
Dillon: Stay away from her, Faith.
Georgie: She won't hurt me.
Faith: And why is that?
Georgie: Because my father's the police commissioner and he'll hunt you down and throw you in prison for the rest of your life.
Faith: For that to happen, he'd have to find a trace of you, buttercup.
Dillon: Actually, you're the one that's going to be in pieces. Lorenzo Alcazar gave us his protection.
Faith: Sure he did.
Dillon: Look, you want to hurt her, you got to kill me.
Faith: Oh, gosh. Knight in shining armor. Well, it's touching but a waste of time.
Dillon: Just leave her alone, Faith.
Faith: Sweetheart, keep your shirt own. Your little girlfriend here is off the hook. See, the police have realized that I'm innocent. They've dropped all the charges, so I am willing to forgive Georgie, as a favor to you for the night we spent together. Who knows -- maybe I can use you again sometime.
Georgie: Are you sure nothing happened the night you were with her?
Jason: It's ok. You were dreaming.
Courtney: Oh, my God. Jason, what if I'm the one who ran Elizabeth down?
Sonny: Carly? Carly? Carly?
Max: Hey, she's not here.
Sonny: Where did she go?
Max: I don't know. She hasn't come home yet.
Carly: Oh, my God. Oh, my God!
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Ned: Officer, this whole thing is a setup. I swear to you.
Elizabeth: Wait. Let Ric stay.
Alexis: You killed an innocent woman.
Stefan: I've been telling you, I didn't!
Carly: Oh, my God!
