General Hospital Transcript Thursday 10/2/03

Sam: No, I know poker, and that's a dead man's hand.
Jax: Yes, and in my case, it is also a winner.
Sam: Whoa. You don't want to win that easily, do you?
Jax: Why wouldn't I?
Sam: Let's keep it interesting. Double or nothing.
Jax: I already have your boat. What else do you have?
Sam: Something better. I want you to cut the deck. High card wins. If that's me, I get my boat back.
Jax: What if I get the high card?
Sam: You get me all night long.
Dillon: So, Crow Dog's last concert is coming up.
Georgie: I know. I can't believe they're breaking up.
Dillon: Oh, come on. I mean, really, the lead singer's first dating the drummer, and now she's with the bassist? No band is going to survive that.
Georgie: Yeah, well, when you're with one person, you should be with just them, no one else.
Dillon: Georgie, I explained to you what happened with Faith.
Georgie: You can't explain. It's the third time, Dillon.
Dillon: Okay, Alcazar made me go home with her. I didn't exactly have a choice. You can't say no to that man.
Georgie: Did he make you make out with her, too?
Dillon: The woman is nuts. She goes around kissing high school students every chance she gets.
Georgie: Yeah, when the guy lets her, I mean, why not?
Dillon: I didn't let her. And I'll tell you another thing -- I'm not going to let it happen again, I promise.
Georgie: I want to believe you.
Dillon: You can. I love you. Flat out, I love you. That means making promises and keeping them.
Georgie: That concert does sound pretty awesome.
Dillon: Who are you kidding? You knew about it all along, didn't you?
Georgie: I was being aloof.
Dillon: Well, it worked. Wonder how much tickets are going to be.
Dillon: Obsess much?
Georgie: Well, you could always ask Faith for the money.
Dillon: That was passive-aggressive.
Georgie: Sorry, I wasn't done with my rage.
Dillon: Well, you know, maybe the concert will help. How's that?
Georgie: We can't afford it, Dillon.
Dillon: Hey, what the lady wants, the lady gets. I'll do everything to make sure you go. Trust me.
Emily: What's going on? You don't look very happy.
Emily: "Go to Kellyís at 6:00 P.M. Everyone will be there." That's cryptic.
Nikolas: It came in my private email account, but almost no one has that address.
Zander: Did you put these under my door?
Emily: Zander, why would Nikolas do that?
Alexis: Obviously, somebody wants our attention.
Zander: Yeah, who?
Alexis: Who is it that we all have in common?
Stefan: I want to commend you on your excellent work, Mr. Lansing. You just rendered my sister obsolete. Mm-hmm.
Coleman: Hey, Steve-O! Looks like I pulled your butt out of the fire again, my man. Another five seconds, you'd be a dead man.
Stefan: What leads you to that conclusion?
Coleman: Well, I don't know, the -- the sniper I just ran off with a gun aimed at your head?
Stefan: I imagine the gunman works for Lorenzo Alcazar.
Coleman: You make all the wrong enemies, don't you?
Stefan: Well, I appreciate your intervention. And I will pay handsomely for additional services.
Coleman: What do you need?
Stefan: I need new identification. I want you to kill Alcazar.
Coleman: You know -- uh -- setting you up with a chick to frame Ashton is one thing. I mean, guys like him don't use -- don't use guns to retaliate.
Stefan: Are you refusing my offer?
Coleman: I don't do murder.
Stefan: Well, let's not haggle. Name your price.
Coleman: It's not about -- it's not about bread, Steve-O. I mean, even I know, I mean, you mess with a cat like Alcazar, you're pretty much committing suicide. So, I mean, if I were you, I'd slide on out of town while I still had lungs.
Jason: Hey. What's up?
Jason: Are they home?
Courtney: Carly left a while ago. She asked me to stay with Michael.
Jason: Did something happen?
Courtney: Well, she said that she needed to go find Sonny. She didn't explain, but she sounded upset.
Michael: There's no ice cream left.
Courtney: Didn't Leticia just buy some?
Michael: Mommy keeps eating it all. She says it's good for the baby or something.
Courtney: Okay --
Michael: Don't tell Daddy.
Courtney: Oh, I wonít. All right, all right. Any cookies?
Courtney: No? All right.
Michael: I really want a sundae. I'm desperate.
Courtney: Okay, well, then I guess we're going to have to go get one.
Michael: You want to come with us, Jason?
Jason: Uh -- you know what, I'm going to stay here and wait for your mom to come back.
Jason: Why don't you grab your coat so you guys can go?
Courtney: Sonny isn't getting any better.
Jason: He's still worried about Carly and the baby.
Courtney: I think maybe he needs a distraction -- you know, something else to focus on.
Jason: Like what?
Courtney: A wedding. We could get married.
Marcella: She'll never understand.
Sonny: Carly, Carly, turn around. Turn around!
Carly: What? What? What? What is it?
Courtney: What, you don't want to marry me anymore?
Jason: Uh -- you know I do.
Courtney: Okay. Well, then let's make it official. Come on, I'll call Father Coates. We already have the license.
Jason: Tell me -- tell me why right now.
Courtney: Why -- why not, Jason? We were supposed to me married months ago, and that night was stolen from us.
Jason: And now that's over and Carly's home safe.
Courtney: Exactly. But I think that she and Sonny need a distraction. You know, I mean, God, it took him forever to accept us, and now he really does. This wedding would make him really happy. And plus it would stop him from dwelling on this imaginary disaster he thinks is looming. Besides, Carly has been pushing for a wedding the minute she found out that we were together.
Jason: See, now, that's about Carly. What do you want?
Courtney: I want to be with you.
Jason: We're together, and I love you.
Courtney: I love you, too.
Jason: And that's the only -- that's the only reason to get married. I don't want it to be about distracting Sonny or giving Carly another party to plan.
Courtney: But it won't be. Not -- not really.
Jason: Okay, you know you like -- you like to take care of people. You did it with your mom, you did it with Mike, and now I think you're trying to do it with Carly and Sonny.
Courtney: Well, family matters to me.
Jason: Me, too. But I want our wedding to be about us because we chose it. And the only person I need there is you.
Courtney: Fine. We'll do it your way. I am going to go see what's taking Michael so long. Okay.
Jason: What? What is it?
Courtney: It's a picture. God, she's beautiful. Isn't that Ė
Jason: That's -- that's Lily.
Carly: There's no one there.
Sonny: She was standing right behind the gate, Carly.
Carly: Well, the fog is pretty thick.
Sonny: She was close. I know it was Lily. I -- I know it was her.
Carly: Well, maybe it was just someone else passing by.
Sonny: It -- it was Lily. I heard her voice.
Carly: She spoke to you?
Sonny: She whispered to me. I saw her -- I saw her face! It was right there!
Carly: Okay, so what did she say?
Sonny: That you'd never understand.
Carly: But I do, Sonny. I do. When Lily died, you thought that you were never meant to have happiness ever again, that you didn't deserve it. But you do. I'm safe, the baby is safe.
Sonny: I know what I saw.
Carly: Her spirit.
Sonny: She -- you know what? I come here all the time and I talk to her.
Carly: Well, that's why we bury the dead. It's so the living have a place to remember.
Sonny: I need to be alone. I got to --
Carly: Come on, Sonny.
Sonny: No, no, no, seriously. Look, Johnnyís waiting for you, right?
Carly: Yeah. I want us to leave together now.
Sonny: No. Shh. Do me a favor, okay? Keep the baby safe.
Courtney: Yum. It's good stuff, huh?
Michael: I prefer the fudge best.
Courtney: Mmm -- really? Then why are you wearing most of it?
Michael: I am?
Courtney: Yeah, you are.
Courtney: Oh -- perfect. Hello? Hey, what's up, Dad? Yeah, I'm just sitting here having ice cream with Michael. Hello? Hey, you know what, we're -- we're getting a bad reception. Hold on a second, I'll move. Hello?
Courtney: Hey, Dad. Yeah, I can hear you now.
Marcella: Hi, Michael.
Michael: I'm not supposed to talk to strangers.
Courtney: Oh, yeah, it sure is.
Marcella: I'm not a stranger. I've known you your whole life.
Michael: How do you know me?
Marcella: Your daddy tells me about you. He talks to me all the time. He gave me this ring.
Courtney: We've got things to do.
Michael: My mommy has a big ring, but it's not red.
Marcella: Your mommy's very lucky. Will you do something for me?
Marcella: Tell your daddy to come see me. It's important.
Michael: Okay. Wait, what's your name?
Michael: Do you know this woman?
Courtney: What woman? Michael, who'd you see?
Sam: First we drink.
Jax: Uh -- actually, I prefer the red label.
Sam: Well, that's too bad because I don't drink alone.
Jax: Losers draw first.
Sam: You know what, why don't you go ahead.
Jax: Would you like to restate the terms?
Sam: Yeah -- I win, I get my boat. You win, you get me. Now, stop stalling and draw.
Jax: Beatable. How lucky do you feel?
Sam: You talk too much.
Jax: I'm at the plaza, Room 243. Unless, of course, there's something else you'd like to wager?
Sam: A bet's a bet. I'll be there.
Jax: Good. Because if you show up, you get these.
Sam: Yeah, right.
Jax: I never joke about a wager or a prize.
Sam: Good. Then open a bottle of whiskey -- the cheap stuff because I don't like surprises.
Luke: Ahem. Ahem.
Luke: Whew. Howdy, friends. Welcome to the main event. Help yourself to cheap champagne and faux fondue. Say hey to your friends and neighbors and fellow Port Chucklians. And then relax, kick back, stick around. Because tonight we're serving up justice in heaping helpings. Ahh.
Alexis: The last time we were all together was at Wyndemere the night Summer died.
Emily: You think this has something to do with Stefan?
Luke: Is everyone ready?
Alexis: You obviously have a plan. Why don't you just fill us in?
Luke: [Distorted voice] You'll know soon enough. Transportation's on the way.
Alexis: You really think that we're all going to get into a car?
Luke: That is exactly what I expect you to do. Don't worry. It's a nice ride.
Zander: Who was it?
Alexis: He didn't say, but he obviously has a plan, and he thinks that we're all going to go along with it.
Nikolas: Did you recognize the voice?
Alexis: He disguised it badly. I don't think we're in any danger.
Zander: Well, we're not taking any chances. Emily, we're taking you to your parents. You're going to stay there for a while.
Emily: No. If this is about Stefan, it's happening because of me.
Nikolas: Zander's right. It's too big of a risk. You should --
Lydia: For all of us. Let's call the cops already.
Emily: No! Look, someone's dead because I asked Nikolas to help me while I was sick. If Stefanís responsible, I want to confront him.
Nikolas: Emily, I understand that you want to see my uncle brought to justice. But given everything --
Zander: But Cassadines stick together, right?
Nikolas: He hurt Emily. I won't forgive that.
Emily: All right, then it's settled. I'm doing this.
Zander: So am I.
Lydia: Do we even know where we're supposed to go?
Alexis: He said that transportation will be provided.
Lydia: As in a shuttle? I'm not getting on some sweaty bus.
Alexis: How does everyone feel about a hearse?
Sam: Hey. Get a good look now because the heels are history.
Jax: Oh -- make yourself comfortable.
Sam: So where are the keys, and when do I get them?
Jax: I've been trying to imagine how the picture you showed me of that -- that boat would inspire so much devotion that you would actually wager yourself to win it back.
Sam: Yeah. Um -- listen, ace, remember when I said you talk too much? Well, that goes double for thinking. Are we going to do this or what?
Jax: I thought you wanted a drink first. You know, perhaps we could talk and -- okay, perhaps we won't talk. We can just, you know, get to know each other. I got the cheap stuff for you.
Sam: Yeah, well, I made a bet and I'm here to settle, no conversation required.
Jax: Can't I even be a little curious about my prize?
Sam: All right, what do you want to know?
Jax: Well, for starters, where are you from?
Sam: All over. Next question.
Jax: Okay. Family -- you have any family? A husband?
Sam: No, I'm a free agent.
Jax: Not much for company, huh?
Sam: Listen, the only opinion I respect is my own. And now that you've heard my autobiography, are we going to do this or what?
Carly: Jason? Oh, great.
Jason: What's up?
Carly: Oh, thank God. You know, I went to your place. When you weren't there, I --
Jason: No, no, just tell me.
Carly: He's at the cemetery. He saw Lily again.
Jason: So you know about that?
Carly: Yeah. I followed him to the graveyard. He didn't see me, didn't know I was there at first.
Jason: But he saw her by the grave?
Carly: No, he saw her just outside the fence.
Jason: Did you see anyone, Carly?
Carly: No. There was no one there. Jason, I tried to get him to come home with me, and he insisted on staying. I think he's waiting to see Lily again. You have to go get him.
Jason: No, I canít.
Sonny: All right, come on, Lily. I know you've come back and you want to tell me something. You got to help me out here. You got to give me some kind of sign.
Sonny: What are you doing here?
Faith: Visiting my husband. You remember him? One of the many you put in an early grave?
Sonny: Okay, you need to -- you need to leave. I'm just -- I'm trying to spend some time here alone.
Faith: It helps to talk to them, doesn't it? Sometimes I feel like I'm still with him.
Sonny: Would you shut up?
Faith: I was just trying to --
Sonny: Turn around! Look! Turn around! Come back!
Faith: Sonny, what is wrong with you?
Sonny: You didn't see her?
Faith: Of course I --
Sonny: Did you see her?
Faith: Of course I did! What -- a woman walked away into the fog.
Sonny: I want to know exactly what you saw.
Faith: There was a woman behind the gate. She was small. She had dark hair.
Sonny: She was wearing a pink dress?
Faith: I don't know. I didn't really see the dress. What, do you know her?
Sonny: You know I do. That's the point to all this. I should've trusted my gut. You never loved Rosco from the beginning.
Faith: Look, you're upset about something. I don't know what. But I have obviously walked in on a private moment. I will come back tomorrow.
Sonny: No, you're not coming back! You're not going anywhere.
Sam: Come on, is there a problem?
Jax: You don't want to do this.
Sam: What? A deal's a deal.
Jax: Well, you know what? Actually, this isn't the prize that I had in mind.
Sam: Come on, what do you want me to say? I need my boat back.
Jax: We keep coming back to that.
Sam: Come on, it's how I make my living. The Lazarus has a rudder that sticks and an engine that's held together with fish line and bubblegum. But you know what? It's gotten me from where I was to where I am, and it'll take me wherever the hell I need to go next.
Jax: She's all yours.
Sam: What's the catch?
Jax: If you agree to answer a few more questions.
Sam: You know what? You shouldn't have given me the keys. Because now that I got my boat, there's nothing you got that I need.
Jax: No, but I have this. Now why don't you tell me what you really know about the dead man's hand?
Lorenzo: I want a report, Detective. Call me when Cassadineís been handled.
Dillon: Hey, Mr. Alcazar.
Lorenzo: Mr. Quartermaine.
Dillon: I needed to see you. I need to talk to you.
Lorenzo: Faith give you trouble on the ride home?
Dillon: No. Um -- I think I have some information you might be interested in.
Lorenzo: What kind of information?
Dillon: The life-or-death kind -- specifically, yours.
Lorenzo: I'm listening.
Dillon: First let's negotiate a price.
Lorenzo: Don't disappoint me, Dillon. I thought you were smart.
Dillon: I am smart. What, people would pay good money for the information I got.
Lorenzo: How much do you want?
Lorenzo: I assumed my life was worth more than that.
Dillon: Yeah, you're right, good point. Let's make it an even five grand.
Lorenzo: Ahem. Why don't you tell me what you know and I'll decide on the price.
Dillon: Okay. Stefan Cassadine, right -- the guy who just got arrested for ordering a hit on my cousin Emily? I overheard him just now ordering a hit on you.
Lorenzo: I appreciate the warning. Now here's one for you. I -- I may not be the best friend for you to have, Dillon.
Georgie: Dillon, I know I said I want to go to that concert, but if it means --
Dillon: I could order tickets right now.
Georgie: I'm serious. I don't want you owing Alcazar anything --
Dillon: Bluebirds fly through the sky, baby
Georgie: Don't be cute --
Dillon: I see a perfect huh! Picture of you I see a perfect picture of you
Carly: Oh --
Jason: Carly, he needs to do this.
Carly: What? Sit in a damp graveyard and wait for Lily's ghost to appear?
Jason: Yes. And when that doesn't happen, he's going to come home.
Carly: The thing is, Jason, he believes that Lily really was there. He said that she spoke to him.
Jason: What -- what did she say?
Carly: That I would never understand.
Jason: Carly, are you sure there was nobody else around? You know, somebody passing by, driving by --
Carly: No one was behind that fence.
Jason: Sonny's been visiting Lily's grave since she died. And he truly believes that she can hear him. Maybe he's right.
Carly: What, so you believe that there really is a ghost and this is some kind of sign that something's wrong with my baby? What?
Jason: No, I don't believe the ghost is real. Okay, but I can see why Sonny would. I'm going to tell you right now, it's not going to do any good to talk him out of it.
Sonny: You okay?
Carly: Yeah, I'm better now, but what is she doing here?
Faith: I don't want to be, trust me.
Sonny: Tell them.
Faith: I ran into Sonny in the cemetery.
Carly: Oh, you mean followed him there?
Sonny: That's what I was thinking.
Faith: I saw a woman in the fog behind the back gate. She was there and then she was gone. The fog was thick. I didn't see which way she went.
Jason: Did you recognize her?
Faith: No. Some woman with dark hair.
Sonny: She look familiar to you?
Faith: That's her. Who is she?
Sonny: My first wife.
Faith: Well, that's impossible, now, isn't it? Your first wife has been dead for years, and the woman I saw tonight looked very much alive.
Sam: What do I care about some old playing card?
Jax: Oh, you seemed interested at the bar.
Sam: I was trying to distract you to win the game.
Jax: You seem interested now.
Sam: I'm just trying to figure out why some rich playboy would be all hung up over a yellow piece of cardboard.
Jax: Okay. The card has significant historical value when grouped with its original four companions.
Sam: Hmm. Let me guess -- two aces, two eights -- a dead man's hand.
Jax: No. The dead man's hand. The actual cards that Wild Bill Hickok was holding when Jack McCall shot him in the back of the head in 1876.
Sam: So, you're into old poker stories, huh? Cowboys and the Wild, Wild West, I see.
Jax: I'm surprised that you don't know the story. I mean, the cards are like the Holy Grail in this part of Texas.
Sam: Oh, yeah? What's the Holy Grail?
Jax: Well, let's just say it's worth a lot of money.
Sam: And you're looking for the other four cards, huh?
Jax: Yeah, they belong to someone I know.
Sam: Well, sounds like a waste of time to me. And now that you're done wasting mine because I have my boat back, I'm going to get going. But here's a tip, ace. Next time a girl gets naked with you, why don't you do yourself a favor and get naked back.
Jax: It's Jax.
Man: [Distorted voice] You have a lonely card in your possession.
Jax: The jack of diamonds. The cards were stolen from my father. I'm here to get them back.
Man: I might be able to help you. Bring the card to the Bolivar bar, and come alone.
Nikolas: We're definitely expected.
Zander: What is this?
Alexis: It's arranged like a courtroom.
Emily: There's black ribbon. Do you think it's for summer?
Zander: Could be. But what I'm trying to figure out is where's Lucky? Summer was important to him.
Lydia: Well, he wasn't home when I left his place, and the only invitation left under the door was for me.
Nikolas: What were you doing at Lucky's?
Lydia: I live there now.
Emily: You're unbelievable, Lydia.
Lydia: I'm sorry. Does every man in town belong to you?
Nikolas: Lydia, why would you want to live in Lucky's room above a diner?
Lydia: Well, I had to go somewhere after you decided to end our marriage against my will. Without the inheritance, five-star hotels are out of my price range.
Nikolas: Lydia, I didn't ask you to leave Wyndemere.
Lydia: Why would I stay where I'm not wanted?
Alexis: All right, you guys, living arrangements aside, perhaps Lucky isn't here because Lucky is a police officer now and if something illegal happened, it would have to be stopped. And I don't think our host is that thrilled with his son trading places.
Nikolas: You knew all along.
Alexis: So did you.
Luke: Howdy, friends.
Alexis: The hearse was over the top.
Luke: Welcome to the main event. Help yourselves to cheap champagne and faux fondue. Say hey to your friends and neighbors and fellow Port Chucklians. And then relax, kick back, stick around. Because tonight we're serving up justice in heaping helpings. Ahh. Now, feel free to sit anywhere you like, except, of course, the chair draped in black, which is in memory of my son the traitor, who ain't invited.
Alexis: I've had enough.
Luke: I figure by now Natasha is headed for the door. Alexis -- stop right there, honey. You ain't going anywhere. Not while I still need you.
[Key turns in lock]
Lydia: Did someone just lock the door?
Zander: The driver.
Luke: So, it's magic time, people! Get ready because the ride's about to begin. Our guest of honor is on his way.
Stefan: So it's done? Excellent.
Coleman: Nice and neat. The fake I.D. should get you out of the country with no problem. So you know where you're headed yet?
Stefan: Of course. But I won't be sharing that information with you.
Coleman: It doesn't much matter, Steve-O. There's no hole deep enough for you to hide from Alcazar.
Stefan: Thanks for the advice.
Luke: Change in plans.
Jason: It was dark and foggy. How good a look did you actually get, Faith?
Faith: I'm not blind. It was the woman in the picture.
Carly: Why are we even listening to this? I mean, if it was anyone else, then maybe --
Jason: It's way too convenient.
Sonny: You weren't there, Jason.
Faith: Look, this doesn't involve me. I'm leaving.
Jason: Yeah, go, but don't disappear.
Sonny: Stay clear of the cemetery. And if you want to visit your husband, you know what you've got to do.
Faith: What, don't?
Faith: Fine, I got it.
Jason: Sonny, there's a logical explanation.
Sonny: I know what I saw. I know what I heard. It was Lily, Jason. Now, I know Faith -- look, I don't like her. She's a snake, and I don't trust her.
Jason: I know exactly what Faith's doing.
Zander: No, all the windows are boarded up.
Nikolas: We couldn't find anything strong enough to break through.
Lydia: So we really are stuck?
Luke: Thank you all for coming! As you can see, the guest of honor has arrived. Right this way. Please, gentlemen, sit down. Sit down, please. Here you go, right in the dock, Sir.
Alexis: I don't think there's any point in me trying to talk you out of this, is there?
Luke: Oh, Natasha, you better than anyone know that everyone deserves their day in court. And this is yours, Stefan Cassadine. The charge is murder one! And something tells me you're guilty as sin.
A.J.: That's far enough.
Jax: All right, I'm here. What do you know about the cards that were stolen from my father?
A.J.: You got the jack of diamonds?
Man: This ain't what you were looking for.
A.J.: Yeah, well, Jax has what we want. You stick with him until he gives it up.
Sam: Whoo! Yes, pirates have all the luck.
Jason: Faith hates you. You don't think it's possible that she could be playing along to undermine you?
Carly: You were already upset when I left the cemetery, Sonny.
Jason: And she's using against you, Sonny.
Sonny: When Faith described the woman, it was Lily.
Carly: A lot of women have dark hair.
Sonny: She said she was small, she was wearing a pink dress, the whole thing.
Carly: Okay, you were standing over Lily's grave, and Faith knew you were upset.
Sonny: Okay, forget all that. What about all the times that I've seen her?
Carly: That was grief. Honey, you were worried about me and Michael and the baby and --
Sonny: No, no, no, no, it's more than that! I've always felt Lily -- I've always felt her presence. I heard her. It's not my imagination.
Michael: Hey, Mommy, I got you some more ice -- I mean, something else you like to eat.
Carly: You're the best, Mr. Man.
Courtney: Hey, we need to talk.
Michael: Hey, Dad.
Sonny: Hey, buddy. Did you have fun with Aunt Courtney?
Michael: Yeah. I saw this lady who said she knows you.
Courtney: Michael, sweetie, I think -- I think you should --
Sonny: Wait a minute. Hold on, hold on. What -- what lady?
Michael: I don't know. She didn't say her name, but she said she talks to you all the time and you gave her this cool red ring.
Sonny: I gave Lily a red engagement ring.
Jason: Did you see anyone?
Courtney: No, no, I was on the phone, but I was only standing four feet away.
Sonny: Okay, buddy. What else did the lady say?
Michael: She said that she needed to see you again, and it was real important. Then I went to ask Aunt Courtney who she was, and then she was gone.
