Lorenzo: And a job well done.

Marcella: I'm glad you're pleased.

Lorenzo: Thanks to your appearances as Lily the elusive ghost, Sonny has moved out of the penthouse.

Faith: Your brilliant plan just hit a major snag. Sonny left the country.

Lorenzo: Alone?

Faith: On his private jet.

Lorenzo: This could be the chance I've been waiting for.

Jax: Well, well, I've been expecting you.

Sam: Huh. I see you got all dressed up.

Jax: Yes. And I see that you will stop at nothing to get your greedy little paws on the dead man's hand.

Sam: Those cards are my birthright.

Jax: Oh, I know, I know, of course. Everything is yours. But you seem to be forgetting one important detail -- A, you already stole the only card I had in my possession, the jack of diamonds, and, B, I need those cards to save my father's life, so, if you will excuse me. Okay, come, get --

Sam: Stop it. Get your hands -- off of me.

Skye: I swear, I used to think that you were the most impossible person on the planet, but Ned -- oh, my. Oh, no. Jax, no matter how heartbroken you are or how lonely you're feeling, you must never, ever sleep with the help.

Emily: Oh, my God, we can't do this.

Nikolas: Wait, wait. See, I know that in my head, but my heart won't feel it anymore. I want you. I want you. I want to make love to you. I want to make love to you, knowing that we'll be together forever.

Emily: I want you, too, Nikolas, so much.

Nikolas: Then let's stop running from it, okay? It doesn't do any good anyway. Say you'll marry me. Say you'll marry me right now.

Emily: Oh, God, you have no idea -- you have no idea how desperately I want to say yes.

Nikolas: Say yes.

Emily: But I canít.

Nikolas: Say yes.

Emily: I canít.

Stefan: Thank you. Now your life is over, too.

Lucky: Dad? Dad, you out here?

Stefan: Your father murdered me.

Stefan: Nikolas --

Lucky: I hope you burn in hell.

Luke: Dead, I assume?

Lucky: Yeah, he's dead. And the last thing he said was you murdered him.

Luke: Stefan was always a sick bastard. But he knew how to get the job done. When he first came to town with Nikolas, your mother and I were married. We were in love. And you and I weren't just father and son. We were best friends. And now look where we stand. Seven years later, Laura and I are divorced. She sits somewhere every day, staring at the wall, and I don't even know you anymore. Of all the things you could have done, all the great things you could have done with your life, you choose to be a cop. There's nothing worse in my book. So, it took him a long time, and he lost his life doing it, but I didn't win this battle. I can't walk away from here back to any life I knew.

Lucky: You know what? It doesn't have to be over. Look. Just look at Stefan. He was the last one holding the knife in his chest. When forensics gets here, whose prints are they going to find on that knife?

Luke: His, mine.

Lucky: You know what? Stop. I don't even want to hear it. I shouldn't have asked you that. I can't afford it! If I'm the arresting officer, I could be called to testify.

Luke: "Arresting officer."

Lucky: I'm placing you under arrest. Please don't add resisting arrest to your charge.

Luke: Don't worry, Officer. I'll go peacefully.

Lucky: You have the right to remain silent. If you refuse this right, any and everything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to you. Do you understand your rights?

Luke: Yes, Sir.

Emily: I don't want to cut corners or sneak into our marriage like a couple of thieves. When I make my vows to you, I want to know it's for all the right reasons and that I plan on keeping them forever.

Nikolas: It's really irritating when you make sense.

[Phone rings]

Emily: Go ahead. Answer that. It's probably hospital security wanting their elevator back.

Nikolas: All right. Hold on. Hello?

Lucky: You need to get to Wyndemere. Your uncle is dead.

Skye: Here. Consider it a tip you're lucky to get. Now, if you leave quietly right now, I won't let the manager know that you were trying to solicit one of the guests.

Sam: Not to say that I can't be bought, but it will take more than a measly 20 bucks, and it definitely won't be by you, thank you.

Jax: Oh, I see you two getting to know each other?

Skye: Jax, you -- you can't do this. You cannot let this gold-digging creature take advantage of you. Take a cue from Nedís situation, okay? You have to get her out of the room and claim that she came on to you before she cries rape and it's all over the newspaper and your reputation is ruined --

Sam: Excuse me! I resent that!

Skye: Well, too bad.

Ned: Skye -- Skye is the most -- should have known.

Jax: I must have somebody look at this door. There must be something wrong with the lock, huh?

Ned: Oh, why don't I take care of that? I'll go downstairs and call engineering.

Jax: Thanks.

Ned: Wouldn't want to, you know, interrupt your big reunion with Skye. In fact, maybe you might want to just take a chair and prop it up against the door.

Skye: Wait, excuse me. Is that what you think? That I came here to throw myself at Jax?

Ned: It wouldn't be the first time, would it?

Skye: That is completely unfair!

Jax: I hate to be rude, guys, but could you take it outside?

Skye: No, Kristina may have been the sole reason that I wanted to get close to you, but that changed, and you know it. And then idiot that I am, I actually started to care about you.

Ned: Because adventure boy was out of town.

Skye: What?

Ned: You knew you had to find someone -- someone --

Skye: You're insane!

Ned: To fill those long, tedious hours at the mansion --

Skye: I can't even believe you're thinking that --

Ned: So convenient -- right down the hall.

Jason: Take and wear this ring as a symbol of my fidelity and abiding love.

Courtney: Jason, take and wear this ring as a symbol of my fidelity and abiding love.

Priest: Having made these vows freely and unreservedly in the sight of God and these witnesses, and having pledged yourselves each unto the other, you are now joined as husband and wife in holy matrimony, sworn to love, honor, and cherish each other, until you are parted by death.

Courtney: Oh, my God. We actually did it.

Priest: That you have, my dear. Jason, you may kiss your bride.

Skye: Well, here's a little information for you, Mr. Know-it-all. The reason I came here was to get advice from Jax about how to get through to you. But why would I want to? With the exception of Kristina, you and the rest of the Quartermaines are a bunch of raving lunatics, and -- well, thank you for reminding me that I'm better off out of it. Now excuse me!

[Door opens and slams]

Jax: So, you and Skye are in love?

Ned: No, no. See, that's the whole point. See, the reason I was attracted to Skye in the first place is because -- well, she felt the same way about love as I did. She's over it because of you. No offense.

Jax: None taken.

Ned: But, see, it was supposed to be an ideal situation. The part I didn't figure in was that she is still in love with you, which is fine, great, you know, no problem. That's just the way it goes. This is me bowing out. Oh, by the way, don't bother sending me an invitation to your next wedding.

Jax: You know, that's really, really annoying. Could you stop crunching on that apple?

Sam: I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to offend your delicate sensibilities.

Jax: Weren't you about to leave?

Sam: So why'd you dump her?

Jax: I didnít.

Sam: Sure, you did.

Jax: No, I didnít. There were difficulties.

Sam: And you wanted out. Don't even try and deny it because I'm an excellent interpreter of human behavior, and it's obvious that star still has a thing for you.

Jax: Skye, okay, and this discussion's over, so, come on. The door is this way. Out, out, out with you.

Man: Good evening, Mr. Jacks.

Jax: What can I do for you?

Man: I'm here to investigate a complaint. Ms. Skye Quartermaine said that there was a problem with one of the maids?

Jax: Oh.

Lucky: I saw something fall from the bluffs. I arrived at the scene, and Stefan was on the rocks.

Scott: Yeah, with a knife sticking out of him.

Lucky: Yes.

Scott: Well, was he dead?

Lucky: Not quite. He managed to say one last thing.

Scott: Oh, really? What was that? Spit it out, Lucky.

Lucky: Stefan said, "Your father did this. Luke Spencer murdered me."

Nikolas: Was that all?

Lucky: He wanted me to tell you something before he died, but he didn't say what.

Nikolas: Is his body still on the rocks?

Scott: Yeah, but nobody's going down there until the forensics teams -- hey. Hey, Spencer, is it me or are you just not very good at this anymore? I mean, putting Cassadine on trial in that little kangaroo court of yours and then spilling it out to the townsfolk just confirmed what me and the rest of the town already knew -- that you're a mental case. You wanted Stefan dead, he's dead, premeditated. So let me ask you this -- was killing Cassadine worth it?

Emily: Nikolas, I'm so sorry.

Nikolas: Don't be. He deserved this. He deserved worse. I hate you. I hate you. I'm glad you're dead.

Carly: Oh, this was everything I wanted for you and Jason.

Courtney: I was afraid you'd be disappointed. It's not exactly the wedding you had planned.

Carly: No, it is better. Because it's all about the bride and groom, just how it should be.

Jason: Yeah, yeah, I just want to say thanks for coming. It meant a lot to have you and Carly here.

Sonny: We would not miss the main event, especially after all it's taken to get here. My sister's lucky to have you.

Courtney: Oh, don't you think I tell myself that a thousand times a day?

Jason: I'm the lucky one.

Carly: You're both lucky.

Carly: Promise me you'll never leave Courtney to protect her and never push her away to keep her safe, okay?

Jason: Did something happen?

Carly: You guys got married. There's cake over there. My baby is begging for a piece. Can you cut that?

Sonny: Yeah, put it on the baby there.

Jason: Is this the tradition where I shove the cake in your face?

Courtney: Don't you dare.

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: You need to be gentle, Jason.

Sonny: Do it. Jason, do it, because it'll be pretty funny.

Courtney: Shh. You -- shh.

Jason: All right.

[Courtney giggles]

Courtney: Okay.

Jason: Yeah. You're going to open wide.

Courtney: Oh, no --

Jason: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. You ready?

Courtney: Don't --

Jason: There we go.

Courtney: Mmm.

Jason: That was nice, wasn't it?

Courtney: Mm-hmm.

Jason: Mmm. Good.

Sonny: I guess I'll make a toast. I don't know, as the best man does. Okay. Here you go. Here you go.

Courtney: Thank you.

Carly: Thanks.

Sonny: You know -- ahem -- on the plane flying over here, I was thinking about the vows you'd be taking and the promises that you're going to make to yourselves and to God and the journey that you're going to have and how you're going to be tested -- and you will be tested, believe me. The strongest loves are. The hardest part about marriage is its greatest reward, and that's becoming one with another person. And that bond never goes away, whether you're together or not. You two -- you two have that bond. Cherish it, hold on to it, like I know you will. To my sister, Courtney, to my brother-in-law, Jason, hold on to the future. You own it.

Carly and Courtney: Cheers.

Courtney: Wait till you guys taste this. It's delicious.

Carly: The cake or that kiss?

Courtney: Both.

Sonny: Okay, you know what? None for me. I can't stay.

Courtney: You're leaving already? But I thought you'd at least stay the night.

Sonny: Yeah. I got to get back.

Jason: All right.

Sonny: Hey.

Jason: Hey, man, thanks for --

Sonny: Yeah. Welcome to the family, officially. You're a beautiful bride and I love you to death.

Courtney: I love you, too.

Sonny: Hey, have a safe -- have a safe flight back, okay?

Courtney: What just happened?

Carly: Sonny moved out. He's convinced that the only way to save me is by leaving me and the children.

[Jason sighs]

Courtney: God. Of all the stupid ideas Sonny has ever had --

Jason: I'm sure he thinks he's doing what's best for his family right at this moment.

Carly: Yeah, he always does.

Courtney: That doesn't mean that you have to leave. I mean, we'll get you a room. You can stay a couple of days, regroup. And besides, it'll give Sonny time to realize what a stupid mistake he's making.

Carly: Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh, absolutely not, okay? You two are newlyweds. It's your honeymoon. I'm not tagging along. And you should go put on something sexy, light every candle you can get your hands on. Go, come on, it's your wedding night. It's only supposed to happen once.

Courtney: And what are you going to do?

Carly: I'm going to go home to Michael. He needs me. You know what? There's nothing you can do to change my mind, so you might as well just go and get ready for your new husband.

Carly: You're beautiful.

Jason: I'll be right up, okay?

Carly: What? What's that look?

Jason: That was nice, how you made it okay for Courtney.

Carly: But?

Jason: But you're a wreck inside.

Carly: You know what's kind of annoying? How you can see right into me sometimes.

Carly: You know, it's -- it's just that it's -- it's hard being married to Sonny, loving him so much. Sometimes -- sometimes I just think maybe I should just let it go and have some peace.

Jason: No, Carly, you don't mean that.

Carly: Yeah, I do. I feel like I spend so much of my time fighting for Sonny and our marriage and our love, and it's like all I do. I could use a little cooperation, or at least for Sonny not to push against me all of the time.

Jason: You think that's what he's doing?

Carly: He's determined to save me by pushing our love away. I don't know what I can do to stop that.

Scott: What'd you do, lose your thinking cap, Spencer? I mean, if you really wanted to kill Cassadine, you could have dragged him into one of those hidden tunnels, killed him, left him there. Nobody would have found him. You could have painted a picture of reasonable doubt. But instead, you wrapped up this murder, and you handed it to me like a little gift.

Luke: I'm not worried, Scott. The case has to be successfully prosecuted. That's something you're incapable of doing. You had Stefan. You had him. He confessed to Summer's murder twice.

Scott: Those confessions wouldn't have held up, but the evidence against you will. You see, Cassadines really the lucky one here because he feels nothing. He was unplugged like a toaster, whereas when you get to prison, they're going to plug you in and they're going to cook you.

[Luke laughs]

Luke: I'm not going to prison.

Scott: Yes, you are, Spencer. You are going to prison.

Luke: No, I'm not.

Scott: Yes, you -- get him out of here. Hose him off. Book him.

Luke: I'm not going to prison.

Jax: My ex-wife tends to overreact from time to time.

Man: Then this maid did not solicit you?

Jax: No. No, she just wheeled her cart in here, and she started dusting off things, you know? To tell you the truth, she's such a drab little thing, I wouldn't have even noticed that she was here if my ex-wife hadn't tripped over her.

Man: Ms. Quartermaine seemed quite clear with her facts. She said the maid grabbed your towel.

Jax: Oh, absolutely. Yeah, yeah, she grabbed my towel. That's what maids do, they pick up dirty towels, replace them with new ones. No, I'm absolutely satisfied with her work.

Man: All right, well, in that case, there are other rooms on this floor that require your attention.

Sam: Yes, Sir.

Jax: I hope this little misunderstanding won't be held against her. She really is an excellent little worker. In fact, you know, I'd be happy if she picked up after me any time.

Courtney: I was starting to think that you stood me up.

Jason: Whoa. Never.

[Courtney giggles]

Courtney: Look, I saw how upset Carly was about Sonny moving out, so if you want to postpone our wedding night and go after him --

Jason: No, no, no, no, no, Sonny and Carly are my family, and I love them and I would do anything to help them, but I wouldn't be doing them any favors by getting in the middle of their marriage. They need to work this out. And we need to be together.

Courtney: Well, I won't argue with you.

Jason: You know what? That should have been one of the vows.

Courtney: Oh, what, like, "obey"?

Jason: You couldn't keep that one for 15 minutes.

Courtney: Yeah, like you could.

Lorenzo: It can't happen till the plane is over water. Do it. Notify me once it's in the air.

Pilot: I'm sorry for the delay, Mr. Corinthos.

Sonny: Is something wrong?

Pilot: Not mechanically. A French official showed up and demanded to inspect the aircraft.

Sonny: Okay, can you hurry up? Because I want to get out of here as soon as the tower clears us.

Man: Are you Michael Corinthos?

Sonny: Yeah.

Man: I have a few questions for you.

Sonny: Can you -- okay, can we make this quick? I'm in a hurry.

Man: I just wanted to know -- how many passengers are you expecting?

Sonny: I'm the only one.

Man: Okay. Do you carrying any currency, pharmaceutical, agricultural products?

Sonny: No, I donít.

Carly: Hi.

Man: I thought you were the only passenger.

Carly: I'm his wife. I decided to fly home with him at the last minute. What's going on?

Man: May I see your passport? Please?

Carly: Sure.

Man: Thank you.

Man: Thank you. You're clear for takeoff.

Sonny: Why is it so hard for you to do what I ask? I don't want to be with you.

Carly: Well, then, you've got a problem because I'm not leaving.

Lucky: My dad escaped. He overpowered the guards and made a run for it.

Nikolas: Good for Luke.

Lucky: I don't believe he's any threat to you. Stefan was the enemy. But you should probably be careful just in case.

Nikolas: I have no fear of Luke, Lucky. He did us all a favor, as far as I'm concerned.

Emily: Thanks, Lucky. We appreciate the warning.

Lucky: If you need anything, just, you know, ask.

Nikolas: Yeah, thank you, thank you, but I'm fine, really. Thanks.

Nikolas: Why is everyone being so careful around me like, you know, like I suffered some devastating loss or something? My uncle meant nothing to me, not after what he tried to do to you. But what I don't understand is how the monster that died tonight is the same man who raised me, who taught me how to ride. Did I ever tell you that? I'm sure that I did. We used to ride together all the time.

Nikolas: I remember one time, it was off the coast of Scotland. We rode out on to the beach. I think I was, I don't know, maybe 6 or so, and he told me to stay away from the water. But I was so fascinated by it. I didn't listen. And sure enough, I got rolled by a wave and pulled out into the sea. And I remember it was so cold, the water was freezing. I kept -- I kept swallowing it and swallowing it, and my clothes were -- were soaked, and it felt like dead weight, and I was trying so hard, but I couldn't -- I couldn't reach the surface. And just when I -- when I thought it was over, a pair of hands literally snatched me out of the sea. And it was my uncle. And I was coughing and -- and choking. And I was as scared as I have ever been in my whole life. But at the same time -- at the same time, I felt safe because it was my uncle, and he loved me more than he loved his own life, and he would never let anything happen Ė

[Key turns in lock]

Sam: Hello again.

Jax: Next time you break and enter, you might want to, you know, make sure the mark has left the building.

Sam: I'm not here to steal, okay? I'm just here to collect on a debt that you owe me.

Jax: Do I have to guess? Because I'm out of guesses.

Sam: Well, you sunk my boat, you stole my supplies. I need a place to crash, so I'm moving in.

Jax: Oh.

Skye: Oh, great.

[Skye gasps]

Luke: Don't scream. Don't scream. I don't want to hurt you.

Skye: Who are you?

Luke: My name's Luke Spencer, and you just became my ticket to freedom.

[Music plays]

Courtney: Is it selfish to be so happy?

Jason: It would be wrong not to be.

Courtney: You know, I remember the first time I ever saw you. You were sitting at a table in Kellyís, and you had the deepest eyes and the kindest smile I'd ever seen. And, you know, I knew -- I know you won't believe me, but I did -- I knew that somehow you were going to change my life forever.

Jason: Well, I do -- I believe that.

Courtney: Yeah?

Jason: Yeah.

Sonny: It's going to be a long flight. Why don't you lie down on the couch and try to get some sleep?

Carly: Oh, you'd like that, wouldn't you? Me passed out on the couch all the way back to Port Charles. Then you could just sneak off the plane, go back to the hotel suite, and never have to hear me out.

Sonny: I don't -- I don't want to fight with you.

Carly: You're my husband. And three times you made the same promises to me that Jason made to Courtney tonight -- "for better or for worse" -- do you remember? So maybe we had our worst. You think you're a danger to me and the children. The solution is not to give into your fear and leave us.

Sonny: I am not making this up in my head, Carly. I am a danger to you and our children. And even if it kills me, I'm going to do whatever I can to keep you alive.

Carly: Even it means leaving us?

Sonny: Even then.

Lorenzo: Yes?

Man: The plane is in the air, but there was an unfortunate complication.

Lorenzo: Tell me.

Man: A woman boarded at the last minute.

Lorenzo: Was she pregnant?

Man: Very much so. She claimed to be Corinthos' wife.

Lorenzo: Call the tower. Tell them to radio the pilot, and order him to turn that plane around.

Man: It's too late. They are too far out over the water. The crash is inevitable.

Lorenzo: Oh, my God. It's happening again.

Lorenzo: Oh -- oh, I've killed her.

Sonny: You're making this harder than it needs to be, Carly.

Carly: Good. I want to make it hard on you. I want to make it impossible for you to leave me. I want to make it as difficult as it would be for me to ever leave you. We love each other, Sonny, and our love has protected us in the past. It's going to protect us again. It always will. You believe me. The danger for me is you leaving me. 

 On the next "General Hospital" --

Sam: You think I like being around you?

Jax: The truth is in your eyes.

Skye: Ugh! Ugh!

Courtney: How do you feel about starting a family?

Sonny: Hey --

Carly: Oh --

Sonny: You okay?

Marcella: Is there any chance they can land safely?

Lorenzo: They have to.
