Sam: Did you just announce you were going to turn me into a lady?

Jax: What can I say? I love a challenge.

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 other man.

Jax: Well, I guess you told me.

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 family?

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 dearly.

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.

[Pounding on door]

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 reflex.

Ric: It's all right, I understand. So I assume you're here seeing your doctor?

Elizabeth: Mm-hmm.

Ric: What'd he say?

Elizabeth: Well, that my eyesight is almost completely restored and within a month it'll be like nothing ever happened.

Ric: That's wonderful.

Elizabeth: Yeah, I'm excited.

Ric: Good. It's cause for celebration. You -- you got anything planned?

Elizabeth: I hadn't really thought about it.

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.

Elizabeth: Oh, Ric, I don't know.

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 believe.

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 another.

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?

[Skye giggles]

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 change.

Ned: Are you kidding me? You look beautiful.

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?

[Skye laughs]

Ned: I'll wait in the car.

Skye: Ok.

Ned: Don't take too long.

Skye: I won’t.

Ned: All right.

Luke: Great.

Skye: That's -- giving me hand signals from across the room. What if Ned had seen you? My life would've been over.

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.

Dillon: Mm-hmm.

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, too.

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 cut.

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 happened?

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 Alcazar?

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.

Sonny: Bastard.

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 for you.

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 that?

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 job?

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 whistles]

Luke: I am dazzled by your beauty.

Skye: Am I supposed to be flattered?

Luke: Oh, either that or giddy with girlish excitement.

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 convicted murderer?

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 all.

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 it?

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 you that.

Sonny: This whole thing was a mind game, but this is between me and Carly. But I'll give Alcazar this much -- it worked.

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 wins?

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.

Michael: Yeah.

Carly: Very, very much.

Michael: Yep.

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 pratfall.

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 eat, please?

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: "Please."

Sam: Please.

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 other.

[Phone rings]

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.

Sonny: Hey.

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.

Jax: Yes.

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. Yeah.

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 wants?

Ned: Oh. Point taken. Where are you going?

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 dinner.

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 sighs]

Bobbie: Carly left a message asking if she and Michael could stay with me until after the baby was born. I was concerned.

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 whole dessert.

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. Chuckles]

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.

[Coleman laughs]

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 around.

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?

[Carly groans]

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Jax: You can start by taking your clothes off.

A.J.: They're gone.

Skye: I know a piece of trash when I see it.
