Jax: What can I say? I love a
Sam: I hate to burst your bubble
and everything, but you're not some divine entity. You can't just wave your
hands and change me into anything and what's so all that about being a lady
anyway? I'm a woman and that is your problem. I intimidate you because I am
strong and self-reliant, and I don't put up with any of your bull. You just want
to water me down, stick me in high heels and short, little miniskirts, and wrap
me up in a whole bunch of rules of behavior. Well, guess what, buddy -- you can
forget it because I am who I am, and I am not going to change for you or any
Sam: It'd be nice if you listened
for a change.
Jax: Oh, no. No, I heard you loud
and clear. You like yourself the way you are, and that's fine but may I remind
you, you introduced yourself to most of the Quartermaines as my girlfriend, the
heiress. I know these people better than I care to. Believe me, the
Quartermaines are as upper crust as you get. They'll spot you're a fake the
first time you pick up the wrong fork and there goes your access but, hey,
that's your problem, not mine. Because I can stroll in their terrace doors
anytime I want. I'm sure you'll find another way in, being so brilliant and all.
Skye: It isn't bad enough that you
broke into my home, kidnapped me, and coerced me into going to a funeral for a
man that I despised. And now you blindly announce that you're going to rob my
Luke: Uh -- correct me if I'm
wrong, but didn't you turn out not to be a Quartermaine?
Skye: Excuse me, I truly believed
that Alan was my father, ok, and I lived with the Quartermaines as a part of
their family through ups and downs and holidays and trauma. I came to love them
Luke: Oh, come on. Nobody loves the
Quartermaines. They don't even love each other. They're a seething mass of
intergenerational dysfunction and they'll never miss the few million dollars
that we're going to take from them.
Skye: Oh, my God. All right -- uh
-- go, Pocahontas! Coming! Why, Ned. You're here, with flowers, no less. What,
did you take a wrong turn?
Ned: I miss you and I don't intend
to make a habit of driving to hell and back to tell you so. So I'm taking you
home -- tonight.
Ric: Well, your vision must be
getting better. You saw me and you froze up from at least 20 feet away.
Elizabeth: Sorry, protective
Ric: It's all right, I understand.
So I assume you're here seeing your doctor?
Elizabeth: Well, that my eyesight
is almost completely restored and within a month it'll be like nothing ever
Ric: That's wonderful.
Ric: Good. It's cause for
celebration. You -- you got anything planned?
Elizabeth: I hadn't really thought
Ric: No, I just promised myself
that when you felt better I was going to -- I was going to ask you out to
dinner. I mean, can we do that? I mean, it's just one dinner. I swear I'm not
going to read anything into it.
Ric: I swear, Elizabeth. I mean it
-- no pressure.
Elizabeth: One condition.
Ric: Name it.
Elizabeth: You won't apologize to
me all night and I'll try not to blame you. We'll just -- talk?
Ric: I can make that deal.
Jason: Hey, maybe you can help me.
I'm checking on a plastic surgery patient. It's a woman. Hispanic, late 20s. I
don't -- you know, I don't have a name, I don't have the exact date of the
surgery, but I know it would've been in the last three months, and I know who
paid for it -- Lorenzo Alcazar.
Lorenzo: I should make you employee
of the month. You made such a convincing Lily, Sonny's finally deserted Carly.
Hopefully, it's only a matter of time before she turns to me.
Marcella: I don't understand how
you can claim to love this woman so much and hurt her so bad.
Lorenzo: Sonny doesn't deserve her.
Marcella: That's what you want to
Lorenzo: Sonny doesn't value or
treat her well. In fact, if I'm worried about anything, it's that he's going to
turn violent and hurt her before he lets her go.
Carly: I mean it, Sonny. I can't do
this anymore. Being with you -- it's too hard.
Sonny: You're not -- you know,
you're not in a position to leave. Michael's upstairs, you got a baby coming
soon, and -- you need to stay here. I'll make arrangements.
Carly: No, I'll make my own
arrangements. Finally, there's nothing you can say to make me change my mind. I
spent the first half of our lives afraid that we were in danger and the second
half terrified that you were going to be devoured by your own demons, Sonny. I
don't -- I don't have the energy for it anymore. I have children to raise. I
love you, and I will love you forever. I just can't live like this anymore. Hey,
you got what you wanted. You always do in the end, don't you?
Sonny: I'm doing this because I
love you, not because I don’t.
Carly: Doesn't matter anymore.
Sonny: Yep, yeah, all right.
Ned: I'm not harboring any
illusions. I know you still have feelings for Jax.
Skye: Well, I suppose that I always
will on some level but I -- I do know that relationship is over and my focus is
on the future.
Ned: Good. Well, I'm glad to hear
that. So the first step is for you to come back into the house with me.
Skye: Well -- uh -- there is
something that you need to know first. I -- I am still feeling somewhat hurt and
misunderstood, and I'm not ready to make a commitment, you know, one way or
Ned: No, no, no, no, no, Skye. No
commitment necessary. We're going to take it one day at a time but I'm warning
you -- if it turns out to be something more, I'm not going to fight it.
Skye: Duly warned. And I love
spending time with you.
Ned: Hey, since we're already out
here, why not stay? We got the whole place to ourselves.
Skye: Oh -- no! Um -- uh -- I --
Ned: Why not?
Skye: I know that this -- I know it
sounds crazy, but -- um -- crème brûlée --
Ned: Excuse me?
Skye: Oh, you know, I have just
been longing for cook's crème brûlée. Really, I -- I don't know what she puts in
it, but it is just the best in the whole world. And you, of all people, know
that the way to my heart is in my sweet tooth, hmm?
Ned: All right. I'll drive.
Skye: Oh -- no that -- that isn't
going to work.
Ned: Why not?
Skye: Well, because I -- I need to
Ned: Are you kidding me? You look
Skye: Oh, ok. Now, I know I need to
change. I -- um -- I'm going for extra special.
Ned: Oh, extra special? You're
crazy, you know that?
Ned: I'll wait in the car.
Ned: Don't take too long.
Skye: I won’t.
Ned: All right.
Skye: That's -- giving me hand
signals from across the room. What if Ned had seen you? My life would've been
Luke: Oh, I doubt that. I think you
could've talked your way out of it. You're good. You are really good.
Skye: All right, why do you want me
at the Quartermaines' tonight anyway?
Luke: I need access to information.
Information like bank account numbers, passwords, birth certificates, stock
certificates -- all that kind of thing, and I figured the best place to start is
Edward’s desk. So, you provide cover, you're backup for me, and I just go on the
treasure hunt, all right?
Skye: All right. But you got to
lose those braids.
Georgie: Oh, thanks.
Georgie: What are you working on?
Dillon: A paper edit of the footage
I shot at Stefan Cassadine’s funeral.
Georgie: You were there? Why?
Dillon: Yeah, I needed to act like
Edward: Well, I'm glad you're both
here. I have some very welcome news and, Georgie, I'm happy for you to hear it,
Dillon: No, no, wait -- wait a
minute. If this has anything to do with the stupid assertions that D.A. Baldwin
is putting out -- everybody knows that he's a total incompetent. Plus, he hates
Luke Spencer’s guts, and he doesn't know anything about law.
Edward: Listen -- listen --
Dillon: Not to mention ethics.
Edward: I don't care why you went
to Stefan Cassadine’s funeral dressed as a woman; that's for some psychologist
to figure out. But what it does prove to me, young man, is that you are
incorrigible, and extreme measures are required. Fortunately, those measures are
at my command.
Dillon: I'm going to hate this.
Edward: What you think or feel is
not at all relevant to me, young man. See, I just got off the phone with Walker
Perry, who's my old friend who is the commandant of the Stonewall Military
Academy. He has agreed to enroll you -- just as soon as we can get that hair
Jason: Listen, I need you to listen
with an open mind right now.
Sonny: I know, I already know.
Jason: What are you -- what?
Sonny: There is no -- Lily's --
there is no Lily, ok? This whole thing was a setup. It was a slap in my face
with the truth.
Jason: What? What are you -- what
Sonny: Last time she appeared to me
she told me that the happiest day of her life was when I told her I loved her. I
never told her I loved her. It's one of the biggest regrets of my life. So she's
working for somebody; probably Alcazar, but I can't prove it right now.
Jason: I can.
Sonny: What do you mean?
Jason: Johnny. He's been acting
strange lately. He's been jumpy, like he did something wrong. So I confronted
him, and he folded.
Sonny: Johnny's working for
Jason: Yeah. He confessed to me
that he was the one who searched your penthouse when nobody was home. He found
that picture of Lily and some letters she wrote. He's the one who left them
behind for you to find them.
Jason: He also said that Alcazar
paid him -- paid him to let the woman in and to help her on and off the terrace.
Sonny: This needs to be taken care
of. You need to resolve it.
Jason: I will. I will. And one
other thing -- the night that woman showed up at the penthouse, her face was
swollen and bruised like she'd been beaten up.
Sonny: Plastic surgery -- no wonder
she looks dead-on like her.
Jason: And I'm checking if Alcazar
paid for any plastic surgery in the last three months. We can get a name, Sonny.
We can get a lead. I'm going to check Mercy Hospital.
Sonny: It doesn't matter. Does not
matter. Alcazar did this to get to Carly.
Jax: I took the liberty of packing
Sam: Where are we going? Get a lead
on the cards?
Jax: No. You're going. I simply
can't risk you staying around here anymore since the Quartermaines have now seen
your face. and since you think it's impossible to act like an heiress --
Sam: Hey, no, no, no, I never said
it was impossible. I just didn't see the need. But after you laid it out, I
thought about it, and, unlike you, I am capable of reconsidering. You're right.
Jax: I'm sorry, could you repeat
Sam: Hmm. You heard what I said. If
acting spoiled, rich, and useless like your ex is the best way to those cards,
then I'm willing to be your pupil.
Jax: Well, I have done some
reconsidering of my own and I don't want to be your tutor. In fact, I think it
would be the most thankless task on this planet.
Sam: Afraid you're not up for the
Jax: No -- certain that you're not.
Sam: All right. Why don't you put
your money where your big, fat mouth is? I bet you that I can be transformed
into a lady to die for in no time flat.
Jax: All right, you're on. 50,000
bucks against the jack of diamonds which you stole from me says that you can't
be turned into a lady.
Luke: I am dazzled by your beauty.
Skye: Am I supposed to be
Luke: Oh, either that or giddy with
Skye: Oh, god. I can't even believe
that I'm doing this. I happen to care about Ned, you know. There's a very strong
chance that I'm in love with him and I definitely love his daughter, and there's
a very strong possibility he could end up with permanent custody. I'm talking
future here, you know -- wife, mother?
Luke: Why the hell would a gorgeous
babe like you want to be anybody's mother? You're built for better things.
Skye: Like acting as a front for a
Luke: Accused murderer.
Skye: Oh, what, are you denying now
that you killed Stefan Cassadine?
Luke: Hell, no, I'm not denying it.
I wear that badge with pride. I did the world a huge favor and I'm not about to
go to prison for it. So it's going to be so long, Port Upchuck, once and for
Skye: Will you go far, please?
Luke: As far as the money that
we're about to get for me will take me. Now, the Quartermaines are the easiest
way to get a bankroll and you're my quickest way in.
Skye: Just remember -- I'm only
doing this so that you will go far, far away.
Luke: Are you sure? I think you
kind of like me. Oh, come on. I'm a lot more fun than those stuffy wax figures
exhibited at the Quartermaine mausoleum.
Dillon: I love you, Georgie. I'm not
going to let us get separated, ok? I promise you that.
Georgie: How are you going to stop
Dillon: My grandmother. I don't
know. I mean, I'll throw myself on her mercy. She's going to put a stop to the
whole military school thing.
Georgie: Edward's already said he's
got Lila’s full support. I highly doubt they're going to let you watch classic
movies at this military school. You're certainly not going to be with me. I'm
going to be miserable, and so will you. This whole summer has been so amazing --
getting to know you and falling in love with you. And now I'm losing you.
Dillon: You're not. You're not
losing me, ok? I'm -- I'm going to find a way for us to stay together. I promise
Sonny: This whole thing was a mind
game, but this is between me and Carly. But I'll give Alcazar this much -- it
Jason: Carly only went to see him
because she was hurt or she was upset. Whatever, ok? I got there and I swear to
you, nothing happened.
Sonny: It's -- it's not just once,
Jason. She's gone to him over and over and over again. She knew what she was
doing. She did it anyway.
Jason: You just said Alcazar was
setting you both up.
Sonny: It doesn't matter anyway
because I don't know if I can get past it.
Jason: You and Carly have forgiven
each other before. Sonny, find a way.
Sonny: Carly told me it's done and
I think maybe for me it is, too.
Jason: Well, then -- then Alcazar
Sonny: No -- no, he doesn't win.
Because whatever else happens, this thing -- this game that he's playing is
going to blow up in his face.
Carly: You know your daddy loves you
more than anyone in the world, right?
Michael: I know. You yell and
sometimes daddy breaks things.
Carly: But we still love each
other, you know.
Carly: Very, very much.
Carly: It's just that some things
have happened in daddy's life that hurt him and he wants to make sure that
doesn't happen to you or me or the baby.
Michael: Like what things?
Carly: Come here. It's complicated,
sweetie. It's -- um -- I know I'm not doing a very good job of explaining it,
but truthfully, it's confusing for me, too. But what I do know is that right now
daddy -- um -- isn't going to be with us. But that means you and me and the
baby, we're going to start a life for ourselves.
Sam: Hey, whoa, whoa. What are you
doing? Are you going to pull that out from under me?
Jax: Who have you been hanging out
with? Circus clowns? No, a gentleman would never cause a lady to take a
Sam: I'm warning you -- the one
condition I do have on this bet is no sabotage.
Jax: Ok, ok, just sit, ok? Sit.
Lift your butt.
Sam: What did you just say to me?
Jax: You don't just plop down into
the chair. You allow the gentleman to push you in closer.
Sam: I am perfectly capable of --
Jax: Lift your butt! Thank you.
There we go. You know what? You really got to watch out for self-sabotage.
You're going to trip up for sure.
Sam: Not a chance. I'm too
motivated. Listen, if I pull this whole charade off, I get access to the
Quartermaines and not only do I get the original dead man's hand if one of them
has it, I get an extra 50,000 smackers in my pocket courtesy of you.
Jax: Ok, ok, never, ever, ever
refer to money as "smackers." Ok?
Sam: Whatever. I'm starved. Can I
Jax: No, you cannot eat. You must
get your napkin. Put it in your lap like this. Elbows off the table. You know,
you're far too eager to eat. Would you like some wine?
Sam: No, I want my food.
Jax: Well, that's a start.
Sam: Uh -- what is this?
Jax: It's dinner.
Sam: For birds?
Jax: Ladies don't eat much in
public. It's something you're going to have to get used to.
A.J.: This will be useful, ok? It's
the key to every room.
Coleman: Yeah, well, I'm still not
sure what you want me to do with this chick except follow her, man.
A.J.: Keep an eye on her. She has
something I need. And I doubt that intimidation tactics will work this time, ok?
I need to work another angle. I'm thinking that's you.
Sam: Ok, wait a minute, that is not
fair. You get to slam down a big, fat, juicy piece of steak and I'm stuck here
with bird food?
Jax: Well --
[Knock on door]
Jax: It's open.
A.J.: Jax, hey. I was hoping you
and your new girlfriend were in, and there she is. Excuse me. Pardon the
intrusion, Sam. You know, I just -- I found your story so captivating -- wealthy
woman who takes on odd jobs just to see how the other half lives. Fascinating,
really. I couldn't stay away.
Edward: Oh, Georgie, I'm afraid
you're going to have to leave, dear, because Dillon has a very long day ahead
of him tomorrow. He has DVDs to be boxed and uniforms to be bought and hair
to be cut.
Dillon: I'm not going.
Edward: Oh, yes, you are.
Georgie: Have you ever been in
love, Mr. Quartermaine?
Edward: Well, of course I have. I'm
a married man. That is not an appropriate question for you to ask me.
Georgie: I'd like you to remember
the very, very, very first time you fell in love. How everything ordinary seemed
to change and become special and -- like breakfast at Kelly’s or the view off
the Elm Street pier. You find yourself just getting lost for minutes at a time
-- just gone. You think about the way his eyes crinkle when he smiles or how it
feels when he holds your hand. It's how I feel about Dillon. We love each other
and he'll do anything to stay. I promise you he won't get in trouble again if
you just -- if you just let him stay.
Edward: Dillon, you're a -- you're
a very fortunate young man to have a girl like Georgie in your corner. And your
commitment to my grandson is really very touching. But, you're both too young to
be in love. It can only lead to disaster and after hearing your impassioned
pleading, I am even more firmly resolved. Dillon will be going to military
school. So, say your goodbyes.
Lorenzo: I've been more than
gracious with you, Marcella, but that can turn on a dime. Don't even think
about betraying me to Sonny.
Marcella: Look, I feel bad for
Sonny, not enough to stick my neck out for him.
Lorenzo: Then we understand each
Lorenzo: Yes. How long ago? Are you
sure? No, forget about staying out of Sonny's way. Do whatever it takes to find
Carly. I want to make sure she's safe. Damn it.
Marcella: What happened?
Lorenzo: Carly left the building in
tears, no guards. She flagged a cab and took off. Where is anybody's guess.
Marcella: Well, isn't this good
news? I thought you wanted Sonny to reject Carly.
Lorenzo: No, Sonny is possessive
and jealous. He treats Carly like she's property. It doesn't matter that she's
nine months pregnant. After Sonny found out that Carly was with me, I am sure
that he turned on her.
Michael: I knew mommy made a
mistake. I knew you'd come home.
Sonny: Is your mommy upstairs?
Michael: No, just Leticia. Mommy
left. She was crying.
A.J.: Please don't let me interrupt
your meal. We can talk while you eat. Jax, I do want to apologize for having
my family barge in yesterday. It's just I was so excited about your new
girlfriend and --
Jax: Well, there's no need to
apologize. I brought Sam there to meet the family.
A.J.: Hmm. Sam, if you mentioned
where you're originally from, I don't recall. I'm sorry.
Sam: South Dakota.
Jax: Yes, Sam has traveled quite
extensively. I am curious, too, A.J. You and I have never been friends. Why the
sudden interest in who I'm dating?
A.J.: Just trying to open a door,
buddy. You know. Yeah. A lot of things have changed since you've been gone. I'm
C.E.O. of E.L.Q. Now.
A.J.: Yeah. I'm just trying to make
peace, that's all but if you're not interested, that's fine. You know, it makes
it that much easier for me to beat you.
Jax: I think we'll be getting back
to our dinner now.
A.J.: Yeah, I'm going to leave.
Jax: I'm glad your luck has
changed, but A.J. I really don't see how that puts us on the same playing field,
now, does it?
A.J.: Never know. You may have
something I want.
Skye: Oh, Ned. This is so lovely.
Ned: What's wrong? Someone on the
terrace? Well. Not that I mind, but where did that come from?
Skye: Oh. You know, I'm not sure. I
just -- I guess it's being reminded about how thoughtful you can be. You know
what I feel like?
Ned: What's that?
Skye: I -- I feel like I need some
fresh air, you know, to clear my head.
Ned: Now, if I agreed, wouldn't I
be working against my own best interests?
Skye: By giving a woman what she
Ned: Oh. Point taken. Where are you
Skye: Oh -- I just -- I thought
that we could go out the front door and go to the rose garden.
Ned: No, actually, we can get there
from the terrace.
Skye: Oh, humor me. It is so much
prettier when you can approach over the front lawn. Ok?
Ned: Um -- Skye? Why not just tell
me why you're so nervous?
Skye: What? It's you, silly. I have
a feeling that tonight's going to be very important for both of us.
Elizabeth: That was a good
restaurant choice. I haven't been to Portofino since -- well, I guess since
you and I were dating.
Ric: So -- uh -- how do you feel
about dating again? I mean, it might be a nice way for us to get to know one
another under better circumstances.
Elizabeth: Would I really be
getting to know you or just the face you want me to see this time?
Ric: Look, I know that I've told
you countless times that I have changed and that I was never quite true, and I
know I broke your trust in me. All I can do now, Elizabeth, is try to rebuild my
life one day at a time and I'm going to do that, whether you're in my life or
not. But I so much rather you were in it. You know? Go to a movie, out to
Jason: Where's Carly?
Ric: I have no idea.
Jason: Well, that's what you said
last time she disappeared and you had her chained in your house for weeks.
Ric: You know, Jason, you can't
blame me every time Sonny can't keep track of his pregnant wife.
Jason: Did you take her?
Elizabeth: Jason, let him go!
Sonny: Well, just -- just keep
looking. And give me an update. Yeah.
[Knock on door]
Bobbie: Carly left a message asking
if she and Michael could stay with me until after the baby was born. I was
Sonny: We had a fight, ok? She got
into a cab by herself without a guard. I'm doing everything I can to find her,
so you don't have to worry about anything.
Bobbie: You drove your pregnant
wife out into the night when she's due to give birth to your son any minute?
Sonny: Ok, but you got to
understand something. Carly left on her own, all right? I didn't -- you know,
it's not like I threw her out of here.
Bobbie: Oh, Sonny, save it! You
know, for years I have watched Carly jump through hoops of fire for you. She was
kidnapped. She was trapped like a rat in a cage by your own brother. Now she's
barely home and you're threatening to leave her. Well, maybe you should! It's
cost my daughter a lot to love you. Maybe too much. She has her own future and
two children to think about, so, ok. Might be better. End the marriage. Walk out
of her life.
Carly: Weigh in, baby. Daddy just
bought us this house as a going-away present. Think we can be happy here?
Jax: Now, just take small bites and
put your fork down after each bite. Just eat half of it.
Sam: Half of it? Why even bother?
Jax: Because a lady never eats the
Sam: You're scamming me. You just
want me so weak and starved so I can't go after those cards. That's what you
want, isn't it?
Jax: Oh, ok, you know what? Fine,
fine. Take the whole thing and shove the whole thing in your mouth, ok, as long
as you can't see that the jack of diamonds is now mine.
A.J.: Sam is no heiress. She's
trailer park trash from Deadwood, Dakota is more like it. She's never seen the
inside of a five-star hotel, and Jax is trying to pass her off as a lady.
Coleman: Yeah, ok, so where do I
come in, chief?
A.J.: She's going nuts. I can feel
it, ok, eager to cut loose with her own kind -- that's you.
A.J.: You are going to befriend
her. Seriously, you're going to defend her -- you're going to befriend her,
you're going to take her to places she misses the most -- pool halls, bars --
that kind of thing.
Coleman: Well, so far, it sounds
like a breeze. So what's the catch?
A.J.: No catch. All you have to do
is gain her trust -- or drunk enough to get her to tell you where she or Jax is
hiding a certain card -- jack of diamonds.
Jax: No, not in half. You take a
bite and you taste it delicately.
Sam: Oh --
Jax: Oh, what -- what is the
matter? What, you don't like marzipan?
Sam: That is god-awful!
Jax: Ok, that's it. Lesson's over
for this evening. By the way, you flunked.
Luke: What the hell?
Elizabeth: Jason, stop it. Look, I
-- I swear on my life Ric and I left the hospital at 7:30 tonight. We've been
together ever since. Go to Portofino. We just had dinner there. You can ask
Jason: I'm going to keep looking
for Carly. If she isn't found soon, I'm going to find you, Ric.
Sonny: I will have her call you as
soon as I hear.
Bobbie: Thank you.
Lorenzo: Corinthos? My men told me
Carly left the building in tears. What'd you do to her? Because I promise you
if you've done anything to hurt her, I will see you dead.
Carly: Is someone there?
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Jax: You can start by taking your
A.J.: They're gone.
Skye: I know a piece of trash when
I see it.
