[Knock on door]

Dillon: Come in.

Georgie: Congratulations, Mr. Youngest vice president in the history of ELQ.

Dillon: News travels fast around here, doesn't it?

Georgie: I'm so proud of you.

Dillon: Do you know what this means?

Georgie: Stock options, more health benefits, a better retirement package.

Dillon: It means privacy. No one bothering us, no one pounding on this door -- especially, the power and freedom to do things like that.

Georgie: Mr. Quartermaine.

Dillon: How would you like to be my own very personal assistant?

Georgie: Do I need any special training?

Dillon: I like your qualifications just fine, sweetheart.

[Music plays]

Georgie: Dillon! Dillon! Dillon!

A.J.: Dillon! What the hell you doing in my chair?

Stefan: It's come to my attention that my nephew has made arrangements to borrow a substantial amount of money from you and Mr. Morgan. I'm here to inform you the loan won't be necessary.

Jason: It's too late. The money went this morning.

Stefan: Well, the funds will be returned.

Sonny: And how's that going to work if the Cassadines are broke?

Stefan: The Cassadines have no interest in your blood money. The deal is off as of now.

Sonny: Is that it?

Stefan: I won't allow Nikolas to be in debt to people like you.

Sonny: Oh. Jason is helping Nikolas as a favor to his sister. You know, the girl you tried to kill?

Stefan: Well, the charges against me are false and will be dropped within the week.

Jason: Do you think that makes it over?

Sonny: Okay, you know what? This is just a waste of my time right now. You're not in a position to give your nephew any favors, all right? Anyway, you know, actually, you're not going to be breathing much longer. Max?

Stefan: I'll show myself out.

Sonny: Thank you.

Sonny: Can you believe that guy?

Jason: This has to be over tonight.

Sonny: Only if Alcazar is eliminated.

Courtney: Sonny seemed really keyed up when he left the hospital yesterday.

Carly: Yeah, he's not sleeping well. His nightmares -- they're getting worse.

Courtney: Must run in the family.

Carly: Are yours still really bad, too?

Courtney: When I have them, yeah, but I don't have them every night like Sonny does.

Carly: Well, you know, the other night when there was the storm, he said that the thunder sounded like an explosion.

Courtney: No wonder you're so upset.

Carly: Did he say something to you?

Courtney: Well, um -- when I walked in, Sonny was staring out the window, and he said for a second that he thought he saw a woman.

Carly: Yeah, he probably did.

Courtney: Carly, I could see out the window clearly. There wasn't anybody out there.

Carly: I don't mean literally. He's just been thinking a lot about Lily and their first baby and how they died. I know it. He's been calling her name out in his sleep. Sonny has seen a lot of things in his life, but I think seeing Lily die was the worst. And the closer I get to this baby being born, the harder it is going to be for him.

Faith: How are you feeling?

Marcella: It's so weird. I keep trying to picture what the doctor did.

Faith: You haven't looked?

Marcella: I'm scared to.

Faith: Don't be. A lot of women would kill to look like you. Go ahead. You won't be sorry.

Marcella: Look at that. I'm beautiful.

Faith: I think so, too. But the important thing -- what will Sonny think?

Maxie: Okay, admit it, you've been avoiding me. I've barely seen you since your big night.

Georgie: Actually, I'm waiting for Dillon. Now isn't a great time.

Maxie: You have plenty of time. So, how was it?

Georgie: Fine.

Maxie: Fine? You sleep with a guy for the first time, and it's just fine? I don't think so.

Georgie: The night didn't turn out like I expected it to.

Maxie: I told you, Georgie. You were expecting way too much. That's why you should have waited.

Georgie: Maybe you're right.

Maxie: It was that bad?

Georgie: No, it was -- it was fine until the smoke alarms went off and the fire department came in and the hotel manager -- Dillon had to convince them that he was wearing my clothes. And then we watched a porno flick, and Mac barged in.

Maxie: What?

Georgie: I'm still a virgin.

Maxie: Mac talked you into waiting, didn't he?

Georgie: No. It was my choice. But what's so bad about being a virgin? Dillon and I really love each other, and we've decided to wait.

Maxie: Are you sure that's what Dillon wants?

Dillon: I was just thinking about perspective, that's all.

A.J.: At my desk?

Dillon: Yeah. You know, I mean, just wondering what it was like to see the world from this perspective.

A.J.: Maybe Ned puts up with your babbling. I don't have the patience right now. What I want you to do is keep an eye on this fax. I am expecting a very important document from London. I need it by closing tonight.

Dillon: Wait a minute. No, no, no, no. Why can't you just get the overnight fax guy to get it?

A.J.: You want this job or not?

Dillon: Yeah, I'll do it. Okay.

A.J.: The minute that this fax rings, you call my cell.

Dillon: I understand.

A.J.: Unless, of course, it is too much of a hassle for you, this job and all, and you'd rather go back to wearing nice orange little vest, picking up garbage out on Route 5.

Skye: Hey. Come on. Take it easy on him.

A.J.: You can go now.

Skye: Hey, you know what? Don't mind him. He kind of gets like this.

A.J.: Don't make excuses for me. Go.

Skye: A.J., he's your cousin.

A.J.: He's Ned's brother, Tracy’s son -- doesn't exactly inspire trust.

Skye: You're not going to win him over by insulting him.

A.J.: I'm busy. What do you want, Skye?

Skye: Hey, haven't I helped you out in the past?

A.J.: When you want something, yeah.

Skye: Well, I'm kind of thinking that maybe we could work together again.

A.J.: No, you were thinking I should give Ned his job back, right? Well, don't waste your breath. I won't even consider it.

Skye: Oh, yes, you will.

Stefan: I just paid a visit to your new business associates. I informed them the Cassadines will be accepting no more of their dirty money.

Nikolas: That's not your decision to make.

Stefan: Why are you putting yourself in debt to criminals, Nikolas, when all you have to do is stay married to Lydia and produce a child? Our financial troubles would be over.

Nikolas: Ah, yes. If only you had managed to kill Emily, all would just be fine.

Stefan: One would hope you're above sarcasm.

Nikolas: One would hope that you would still be in jail.

Stefan: Nikolas, everything I have done has been to protect you.

Nikolas: Protect -- protect me? It's to save your own skin!

Stefan: I've made mistakes, but if you will allow me the chance to help repair them --

Nikolas: Your help has put me in debt to Lorenzo Alcazar.

Stefan: If I had known he was involved, I would never have taken out the loan.

Nikolas: All right, you know, I would prefer not to do business with Sonny and Jason, but at least they don't make excuses for who they are and what they do. They make no pretense of self-sacrifice.

Stefan: Dealing with them is a mistake.

Nikolas: Possibly, but it's my mistake, not yours.

Stefan: Nikolas, I never intended to put your life at risk.

Nikolas: I don't care what you intended. I'll run the family my way, and you'll stay out of it. And you know what? Don't annoy me by trying to regain control.

Carly: If I actually thought it would help, I might even consider staying in bed until the baby comes.

Courtney: Really?

Carly: Yeah. But you know what? Sonny -- he's still going to worry. He's still not going to be able to sleep. And then we're just going to get on each other's nerves, and we won't stop fighting.

Courtney: I hate to see you under this much pressure.

Carly: Yeah. Look, I just have to keep life as normal as possible for Sonny. It should be okay. Oh, great, I don't believe this.

Courtney: Leave us alone.

Carly: Hey, it's all right. You're just going to pass on through, right?

Lorenzo: I apologize for the interruption. The baby's doing well?

Courtney: You don't care about Carly's baby or anyone else's.

Lorenzo: I'm glad to see you're enjoying your freedom. I understand a hit-and-run is a pretty serious crime in this country.

Courtney: What, you expect me to thank you?

Lorenzo: I did witness the accident, bring the driver forward.

Courtney: I don't owe you anything, and neither does Carly.

Carly: Look, we understand your point. You've made it. You are everywhere all the time. Why don't you go?

Courtney: Yeah, why don't you go all the way to South America.

Lorenzo: I'm sorry to disappoint you yet again. I just purchased the old warehouse complex on Water Street.

Carly: You did?

Lorenzo: Yeah, I got a good price.

Courtney: Wow, that's great. Anyway, I don't really see why we're having this conversation right now, so goodbye.

Lorenzo: You might want to mention my purchase to Sonny. I promised I'd set up a legitimate business outside of his territory. That's what I've done. I'm a man of my word.

Sonny: No one said Alcazar wasn't smart. He lent the Cassadines money, what, eight or nine months ago?

Jason: February.

Sonny: His brother wasn't even, what, a couple of months dead? Nobody knew who killed him, but Luis died in this town. Alcazar probably blamed me.

Jason: So what are you thinking? This is about revenge now for Alcazar?

Sonny: It used to be. It used to be about revenge. It used to be about profit. Now, for whatever reason, it's about Carly.

Jason: But I don't see how the Cassadines fit into this.

Sonny: Alcazar wants a foothold in Port Charles. The Cassadines own property here. They've been shipping through the harbor. Alcazar knows that if he gets them in his debt, he'll become a silent partner. Use the Cassadines' legitimate shipping, right?

Jason: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: To move his product. And the Cassadines are international, so that way he can use them as a front anywhere he wants. He's been trying to come into my territory, laying out the groundwork. You know what? I want Alcazar eliminated. But I don't want, you know, a mob war down on my head.

Jason: I can handle it.

Sonny: Time -- I don't want a lot going on right now. You know, Carly's due date is in a month.

Jason: I'll be careful.

Sonny: I don't want anything traced back to us.

[Knock on door]

Dillon: Come in.

Georgie: Hey.

Georgie: You're vice president already? Congratulations.

Dillon: Uh -- hi.

Georgie: We had a date, remember?

Dillon: Yeah. It would be nice if you charged your cell phone once in a while.

Georgie: Sorry.

Dillon: That's okay. A.J. -- A.J.'s making me wait for this stupid fax to come in. He's exercising his corporate prerogative and putting me on probation.

Georgie: Why?

Dillon: Because he caught me thinking -- about you.

Georgie: Me, too. Only, about you. I rammed the med cart right into your Uncle Alan.

Dillon: Oh, man. So now he thinks you're, like, an addict.

Georgie: Actually, I said "excuse me" and ran.

Dillon: Good call.

Georgie: Yeah. Where can I put this stuff down? I don't want to mess anything up.

Dillon: Um -- you know what? Why don't you -- why don't you just set it down right here.

Georgie: Won't you get into more trouble for that?

Dillon: No, I won’t. But I'll get in trouble for this.

[Music plays]

Skye: Alexis set Ned up. I mean, the whole thing -- the whole rape charge, the whole groupie thing -- total scam. So I'm thinking that if you could give Ned his job back, you know, make some public show of support that would --

A.J.: When has Ned ever lifted a finger to support me?

Skye: A.J., come on. Stop and think about it here. You know, you have the corner office. Just sit back, enjoy, and let Ned do all the work.

A.J.: Do you really expect me to step down as C.E.O. of E.L.Q.?

Skye: Well, maybe you guys could share the position or you could create a new position for yourself. You could work something out.

A.J.: This really matters to you, doesn't it?

Skye: Ned cares about me, okay? He -- he gave me a chance when no one else would.

A.J.: That was me, remember? When Ned would barely speak to you.

Skye: Everything is different now, okay? Ned has shared his life, his child with me, and I really want to help him. I want to help him, pay him back in any way that I can. So, A.J., will you give him his job back?

A.J.: No way in hell.

Lorenzo: You're late.

Faith: These alleys are like a maze. What do you want with this ghost town?

Lorenzo: Speaking of, is she ready?

Faith: Well, you saw her yourself. She's gorgeous. What about Sonny?

Lorenzo: Well, he's angry, combative. I'd almost say paranoid.

Faith: Well, doesn't that make him more dangerous?

Lorenzo: It also makes him vulnerable. This needs to happen tonight.

Sonny: All right, what's so important I had to come right away but I'm not supposed to worry because it's not an emergency?

Carly: Well, we needed a night out. And since I own the best club in town, I figured, why go any place else? No crowds, no cover charge. No interruptions.

Sonny: Oh, so you got me down here on false pretenses.

Carly: Oh. Well, you know me.

Sonny: Well, you know I don't like you down here alone.

Carly: What are you talking about, alone? Kelly's is open upstairs, and your people are lurking around, and I only sent my staff home three minutes ago.

Sonny: I just want you to be careful.

Carly: I'm careful. Let me take care of you.

Sonny: How you going to do that?

Carly: Hmm. I know you better than anyone else.

Sonny: Yeah? You think so?

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: Hmm? Hmm?

Carly: Mm-hmm. Let's see, I know your favorite color is moonlight. Your favorite food is anything I don't make. Your favorite song --

[Music plays]

Carly: Is anything that happens to be playing while you are looking in my eyes.

Sonny: You're good, you know that?

Carly: Yeah, well, I like to think so.

Nikolas: What do you need?

Jason: Okay, in about 30 minutes, I want you to be in a public place, okay? Make sure people see you. Try to get some kind of documentation. Use a credit card, order from a restaurant, something.

Nikolas: Create an alibi so I won't be suspected of killing Alcazar?

Jason: That's right, yes.

Nikolas: Okay, just to be clear, I'm not suggesting that you kill him, either. I mean, you loaning me the interest buys me enough time --

Jason: Nikolas, he got you to cooperate by threatening Emily, okay? She's the target for as long as you owe the money.

Nikolas: I'll keep her safe.

Jason: No, it's better to eliminate the threat. Alcazar's hurt as many people as he's going to. By tomorrow morning, he's not going to be a problem for anyone.

Nikolas: All right, what else do you need?

Jason: Just a good alibi, that's it.

Nikolas: What about backup?

Jason: No, I don't need any. Alcazar just bought a new building across town. There's a whole network of alleys around it. He's not going to see me coming.

Nikolas: Okay, I guess you know what you're talking about.

Jason: Yeah.

Courtney: Hey, guys. What's going on?

Nikolas: Hey. I was just asking Jason about Emily. It's good to see you.

Courtney: Yeah, you, too. Bye. So, what's going on with you and Nikolas?

Jason: I'm just doing something for Emily.

Courtney: I thought Emily was getting better.

Jason: Yeah, she is. You know what? I -- I got to get going.

Courtney: Is everything all right?

Jason: Yeah, everything's cool. I've just got to take care of some work, you know. I'll see you at home, all right?

Courtney: Okay.

[Fax rings]

Georgie: I thought we agreed to wait.

Dillon: We waited.

Georgie: No, wait as in hold off, you know?

Dillon: It's not such a great idea, anyway, I don't think. I mean -- right?

Georgie: Our first time cannot be on top of a desk.

Dillon: Would you prefer the floor?

Georgie: We can't do it here.

Dillon: Why not?

Georgie: Well, with our luck, the desk would collapse or we'd end up covered in pizza.

[Fax beeps]

Dillon: Hey, sex and food -- that's every guy's fantasy. What?

Georgie: What's the rush? I mean, if we really love each other --

Dillon: I do love you. But what do we mean when we say wait?

Georgie: You're absolutely right. We need official documentation, a way to seal the deal.

Skye: A.J., I made the same mistake you're making. You think you've won, and you want to lord it over everyone who ever treated you badly, rub their nose in your triumph.

A.J.: This has nothing to do with payback. Ned has made some choices. Now he must suffer the consequences.

Skye: So there's no way that you're going to let Ned back into E.L.Q.?

A.J.: No.

Skye: On any level?

A.J.: That's right.

Skye: Okay. Well, that's what Ned said you'd say. I just wanted to discuss it with you because you matter to me. But Ned is suing both you and E.L.Q. for wrongful termination. If you have any questions, you can contact his new lawyer, Ric Lansing. See you in court.

A.J.: Yeah, you really care.

[Music plays]

Carly: You know, we have all night. And we better enjoy it because once our baby's here, no more dancing. No more music in the middle of the night, and we are just going to be praying for two hours of sleep.

Sonny: Yeah, if you say so.

Carly: But I know you're no good at waiting, and neither am I, but that's all we have to do now. Okay, we just need to wait for this one to be born. And when you get worried, you come and find me and put your hand on my stomach and you feel him in there, alive and safe. You know, he's going to be in our arms really soon.

Sonny: You really are good, you know that?

Carly: Well, thank you. It's nice to be appreciated.

Sonny: I'm serious. You inspire me.

Carly: I do?

Sonny: Yeah. What are you hungry for?

Carly: Anything that you cook.

[Phone rings]

Carly: Oh, no. Who's calling? Let me just check. Hello?

Courtney: Yeah, Carly, look, I'm sorry to bother you, but I need to see you right away.

Georgie: "Georgie Jones and Dillon Quartermaine do hereby" --

Dillon: "Hereby"?

Georgie: Needs to sound official. "Do hereby agree to abstain from having sex." Sounds terrible.

Dillon: Why are we doing this, again?

Georgie: Because we want our first time to be special, not just rolling around on a desk.

Dillon: People in movies do it on desks all the time.

Georgie: They do?

Dillon: Ever since black-and-white.

Georgie: You know, it would be kind of fun.

Dillon: Totally cinematic.

Georgie: Definitely. Okay. Type this.

Dillon: Yep.

Georgie: "Do hereby agree to do it on a desk, not for their first time but at a later date in the future."

Dillon: Hmm. I'm into that.

Georgie: Or -- or "do hereby agree to abstain from sharing ourselves"? There we go.

Dillon: Hmm, sounds more legal. Okay. For how long?

Georgie: Six months.

Dillon: How about six days?

Georgie: Six minutes. I did not just say six minutes.

Dillon: Two months.

Georgie: Six weeks.

Dillon: Six weeks.

Georgie: Perfect. Hit print. This is perfect.

Dillon: Yeah, but we do have to keep this just between us.

Georgie: Yeah, don't save that. Okay? Sign here.

Dillon: Gone. You got a pen?

Georgie: Try the floor.

Dillon: There we go. You first, hotshot.

Georgie: Okay. Now you.

Dillon: Mm-hmm.

Dillon: Feel any different?

Georgie: No. Not at all. Maybe we should shake on it.

[Music plays]

Carly: Hey. Hey, I got here as soon as I can. Did you and Jason have another fight?

Courtney: No, Carly, it's nothing like that. I think Jason's going to kill Alcazar tonight. Right now.

Carly: Why? Why? What makes you think that?

Courtney: I overheard him and Nikolas talking. Jason said something about Alcazar buying a building where there's a network of alleys.

Carly: Does Jason know that you overheard this?

Courtney: I don't know, Carly. I mean, he doesn't tell me anything, but I have a really bad feeling about this. If anything happens to Alcazar, the police -- they're going to question Jason first.

Carly: Yeah, right after they question Sonny.

Courtney: Okay, so what are we going to do?

Carly: Nothing.

Courtney: Nothing? What if something happens to Jason?

Carly: Jason is doing his job, and you need to let him. You need to just go rent a movie, eat some popcorn. Let it go.

Courtney: What are you going to do?

Carly: I started a nice evening with my husband. So I'm going to finish it.

[Music plays]

[Music stops]

[Different song plays]

Faith: Quiet tonight, isn't it?

Sonny: We're closed.

Faith: And you're here all alone.

Sonny: Get out of here.

Faith: You know, my grandmother never intended for it to be this way. She wanted crowds, dancing, party every night. Not a dark room full of ghosts.

Sonny: Then maybe you shouldn't have killed her.

Faith: Maybe you shouldn't have killed my precious husband, may God rest his soul.

Sonny: You just love taking liberties, don't you?

Faith: Do you ever miss the good old days, Sonny? Before Alcazar and your charming brother showed up? You know, when it was just five families? Everything was clear. Everything was polite. Don't you just long for it to be that way again? How about we drink a toast to those good old days?

Faith: Here's to how things used to be.

Sonny: I like your glass better.

Faith: You're paranoid, aren't you? Anybody ever noticed that?

Sonny: Your grandmother died right here in this room, having a drink with you.

Faith: She was old.

Sonny: Yeah. The hit woman you hired to kill me collapsed in the Port Charles Grill in front of my sister.

Faith: I have no idea what you're talking about.

Sonny: And Elizabeth -- we all know what happened to her.

Faith: Oh, well, yeah, you don't believe that ridiculous story about the lemonade, do you?

Sonny: I like your glass better.

Faith: Suit yourself.

Sonny: Okay, so here we are. A toast to how things are now. Drink up.

Lorenzo: Faith is setting the stage. She'll tell you what to do. You have no margin for error. Call me when it's done.


A.J.: Nice. Very nice.

Dillon: I'll clean it up.

A.J.: I guess you didn't get the memo about eating at your desk.

Georgie: That would be my fault. You see --

A.J.: Did my fax come in?

Dillon: Oh, your fax.

A.J.: Yeah, you know, this fax? The one I told you to keep an eye on? You were supposed to call me as soon as it came in. Does any of this ring a bell?

Dillon: I messed up, okay?

A.J.: You know what? It's too late to make this deal now.

Dillon: I'm really sorry.

A.J.: Do you have any idea what you just cost E.L.Q.?

Dillon: Maybe -- maybe I can email them back and tell them that the fax machine broke down --

A.J.: Georgie, does Mac know you're here, making out with Dillon in some office building? I guess that kind of makes you like takeout, doesn't it? That's for free. Now get out. You're fired.

Jason: I thought you were going home.

Courtney: I heard you talking to Nikolas. It wasn't about Emily.

Jason: She asked me to help him. Courtney, that's all -- that's all I can tell you.

Courtney: Are you helping Nikolas by killing Alcazar?

Nikolas: Where have you been?

Stefan: Why would you care? I was under the impression you've washed your hands of me.

Nikolas: What have you done?

Carly: Lorenzo. Come on, Lorenzo --

Carly: Feel it. Me and the baby -- we're going to be okay.

Lorenzo: You all right? You're safe. You're safe.

[Music plays]

Sonny: You came here with no invitation. You helped yourself to Carly's champagne. So drink up.

Faith: No one's trying to kill you, Sonny. At least not at the moment -- that I'm aware of.

Sonny: Drink the champagne.

Faith: I feel dizzy. Was it poison? Oh, no, wait -- it's your paranoia sucking the air out of the room.

Sonny: Get out!

Faith: Fine. It's a tomb in here tonight, anyways.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Elizabeth: Ric?

Ric: Can you see me?

Nikolas: What have you done?

Stefan: I canceled the debt.

Courtney: Is Lorenzo Alcazar dead because of you?

Jason: We can't have this conversation.

Carly: You can't die on me. Come on, Lorenzo.

Sonny: I'm not dreaming.
