Sam: No, you don't get to tell Chase that I will sleep with him.

Jax: You said you wanted the cards at any cost.

Sam: You're offering my body to a man that you don't even know.

Jax: You offered it to me when you didn't really know me.

Sam: That's because we made a bet.

Jax: Yeah, and she was the wager. It's a transaction, and so is this, unless you were lying about really wanting the cards.

Sam: No, of course I want the cards.

Jax: Okay, so then you sleep with the man, you spend a night with him, you get the cards, and then we do a deal.

Sam: Fine. One night in bed in exchange for the cards.

Chase: Hmm. This is going to be the sweetest bargain I ever made.

Emily: Neither of us live here. Maybe we should think about going home.

Nikolas: No. No way. I don't want this night to end.

Emily: Neither do I. It's -- it's almost like a dream.

Nikolas: You happy?

Emily: Very.

Nikolas: What about tomorrow? You going to regret this?

Emily: Only the pain I've caused Zander. I'm sorry. I know, I know you don't want to hear this.

Nikolas: No, it's all right, it's all right. You can tell me anything. You know I won't judge you.

Emily: I know. You know, lying in your arms -- it -- it feels like we're -- we're inevitable. You know?

Nikolas: Mm-hmm.

Emily: Like we were always going to be together. And maybe I needed -- maybe I needed him to teach me the difference between first love and -- and forever love. Because that's what I feel for you.

Singer: Fill in the space that calls your name the pleasure burns inside my veins be reckless with your pride or means my body is here for you to feel the morning sun takes aim no place to hide the chain we'll glow with no regrets this night won't let us forget

Singers: Feel the flame inside if only for one night

Singer: Touch my soul

Singers: Your love will make me whole

Jason: Look, I know that you're afraid, but you can't take Michael and the baby out of their home.

Courtney: Jason, Carly may never wake up. The best thing I can do for her is to keep her children safe.

Jason: Hey, buddy, it's not time to leave yet. Go back upstairs.

Michael: I don't get it. What's going on?

Jason: When I understand, I'll explain it to you. Go back up to your room, okay? All right, give me Morgan.

Courtney: No, I canít.

Sonny: Guess what -- I saw our sons earlier tonight. Michael misses you, but, you know, he's -- he's doing okay. He trusts that you're going to be home soon. And Morganís just amazing. He's just beautiful. I mean, his heart is perfect. Jason, Courtney, and Michael are with him right now. They're giving him all the love that he needs. But you carried him for nine months, protected him against every danger. You got to wake up so you can see your child.

Carly: Do you think I'm looking fat?

Lorenzo: Why do you ask? You're as slim and beautiful as ever.

Carly: Yeah, well, I guess it's just a pound or so right now.

Lorenzo: What do you mean?

Carly: Hmm, well, in about nine months it's going to be more like 25 pounds.

Lorenzo: You're pregnant?

Carly: I went to the doctor to double-check, but yeah. You're going to be a daddy.

Lorenzo: Oh, you are going to be the most beautiful mother in the whole world.

Carly: Oh, I know it's unexpected, but -- whoa!

Lorenzo: That's wonderful! Good God, I got to be more careful.

Carly: No, you donít. You have to kiss me, because I love you.

Lorenzo: I love you, too.

Sonny: What are you dreaming? I pray it's a happy dream. And you're with the people you love most.

Jax: A shot of tequila.

Coleman: Hey! So your little lady left with somebody else, brother.

Jax: No, she's not my lady.

Coleman: Well, you call her whatever you want. You still agreed to pay me two Gís for telling you where she was.

Jax: Here, you can count it. And that's for the drink.

Coleman: On the house. You can count it.

Jax: Thank you, kind Sir. Hit me again.

Coleman: You know, you and Sammy have a lot in common. Tequila's her drink, too.

Jax: Let me tell you something about Sam -- Sam is only out for herself, okay? She's a liar and a thief, not to mention she severely lacks manners and social skills. She's entirely unfeminine unless she's scamming someone, like that fool that she was working tonight.

Coleman: Hey, what fool is that, man, the cat she left with or you?

Chase: I hope you're flattered, because there is no other woman I'd go through this much trouble for.

Sam: You tailed me to upstate New York, knocked out a room full of people to steal my lucky cards. And now you're blackmailing me into sleeping with you. Wow. You are romantic.

Chase: Since when did you care about romance?

Sam: Since when did you even try?

Chase: Come on, Sam. Look, you crave adventure. I can give that to you -- in and out of bed.

Sam: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I don't trust you as far as I can throw you. Where are the cards?

Chase: They're someplace safe.

Sam: I'll believe it when I see it.

Chase: Oh, come on, later --

Sam: No. No, no, no, no! I want to see the cards with my own eyes, or else you are sleeping alone.

Zander: You sorry?

Elizabeth: This is my idea, remember?

Zander: Thought it was mine.

Elizabeth: Zander, you know this had nothing to do with you, right?

Zander: We both needed somebody to use. We said that from the start.

Elizabeth: Well, do you feel any better?

Zander: Right now? Yeah.

[Elizabeth laughs]

Elizabeth: Yeah, until reality hits you between the eyes.

Zander: I'm not looking ahead. I'm just living life minute by minute.

Zander: You know that we could start this up again if we wanted to. Or not, if we donít.

Elizabeth: Thank you.

Zander: For what?

Elizabeth: You have this amazing habit of accepting me when I need it most.

Zander: I'm glad I could help.

Zander: All right. I'm going to give you some privacy. I'm going to go.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Elizabeth: Zander? I'll see you around?

Zander: If you want. There's no pressure.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Zander: See you.

[Door opens and closes]

Elizabeth: Hey, Rm. It's me. I need to see you, and the sooner the better.

Jason: Nothing has to be decided tonight. The kids are safe.

Courtney: Jason, Faith Rosco is a maniac, okay? She got her men to mow down a room full of people, including you. It's a miracle that you weren't even hit.

Jason: I know, it's over.

Courtney: No, we don't know that, Jason. She could have her men come in here any second!

Jason: She's not going to get anywhere near this place!

Courtney: Well, I am not willing to bet two children's lives on it! God, you chose this life, Jason, Michael and Morgan didn't.

Jason: Are you mad at me for almost getting shot?

Courtney: No, Jason, I -- I love you just as much as ever. But you know what? I finally see the truth. You can't change who you are or what you do. It's a part of you, and your life is not safe for children.

Jason: If you want to leave, that's your choice, but you're not taking these kids away.

Courtney: You don't understand. If it were just me, I would take the risk because that is how much I love you. But Carly would want Michael and Morgan to be safe, and that is why I am taking them away.

[Courtney sighs]

Jason: It's not your choice to make.

Sonny: All right, I've tried everything else now to bring you back. How about bribery? I was going to -- I was planning on buying you something, you know, to mark the baby's birth. I tell you what -- you know, I -- I don't know, diamond bracelet, necklace. I will give you -- this is good -- I will give you permission. You can buy anything you want in the whole wide world. But you got to come back to me.

Nurse: Excuse me, Mr. Corinthos?

Sonny: Yeah?

Nurse: You have an urgent call holding.

Sonny: All right. Hello?

Jason: Hey, I know you're with Carly, I don't want to bother you, but you need to come home.

Sonny: Is the baby all right?

Jason: He's fine. But he and Michael need you now.

[Lorenzo sighs]

Lorenzo: My life was so much easier before I met you. Everything was a business problem that could be solved with money or a gun. If I won, I turned a profit. If I lost -- oh, I didn't lose. Nothing was at stake. Nothing I cared about. How did I end up here -- in love with another man's wife, unable to leave her side? Feeling that life without you would be unimaginable.

Carly: Okay.

[Carly giggles]

Carly: Okay, all right. You can let me go any minute now.

Lorenzo: No, no, no, I have just witnessed a miracle -- our child inside you. You got to give me a minute to come back down to earth.

Carly: Aw. All right, my mom is upstairs working on the 10th floor. I'm going to go check in with her, tell her the checkup went well. I'll meet you at the car, okay?

Lorenzo: All right.

Carly: Okay.

Lorenzo: Don't be late! I want to take you out to dinner to celebrate.

Carly: Yeah?

Lorenzo: Yeah.

Carly: You spoil me, you know that?

Lorenzo: Actually, I happen to think it's the other way around. You've given me everything I've ever wanted.

Carly: Hmm, okay. In that case, I'll let you take me to dinner.

Lorenzo: Hmm. It's a date.

Carly: Okay.

Carly: Hey.

Sonny: Hey. I haven't seen you in a while.

Carly: Yeah, I -- I've been busy. My husband and I -- we're expecting our first child.

Sonny: Congratulations.

Carly: Yeah, thanks. Oh -- oops --

Sonny: Whoa.

Carly: Oops.

Sonny: You all right?

Carly: Yeah. Sorry. I'm fine. Um -- doesn't seem like the elevator's moving, though. Huh. Ooh, I hope you're not claustrophobic.

[Carly laughs]

Sonny: Well, let's hope we're not stuck here long enough to find out.

Carly: Yeah.

Lorenzo: You're trapped inside your dreams, Carly. Find your way back. Don't get lost in them. Listen to my voice and follow it. Your life is here waiting for you. And I'm waiting for you, too.

Courtney: Your children are targets as long as they stay in Port Charles.

Sonny: My sons belong with me.

Courtney: You're a wonderful father, Sonny, you are. But there is no telling when Carly is going to wake up, and you can't leave her. Look, I promised you that I would take care of your children until you and Carly come home.

Sonny: I'm getting out of the business.

Courtney: Yeah, I know. I know, and I think it's wonderful, and I hope you succeed. But you know what? It's going to take time to make that transition, and you can't focus on that until Carlyís well. Meanwhile, your kids are in danger!

Jason: You got your answer! You got your answer, Courtney. The boys are staying with Sonny, that's it.

[Courtney sighs]

Sonny: Where would you take our children?

Courtney: Um -- a little town across the state line, Hayes' Landing. Look, I saw it in one of the brochures you had me look at when you were trying to send me away to college. Sonny, it's peaceful, it's pretty. I looked it up on the internet and it's like -- it had zero homicides in almost 10 years. No bullets flying, no cars exploding.

Sonny: This is -- this is their home. I mean -- you know.

Courtney: This place could be, too.

Courtney: You love your children, Sonny. So, please, just let me give them what you canít. Let me keep them safe.

Sonny: Take them.

Courtney: You're doing what Carly would want.

Jason: You know that's wrong, Courtney. I've known Carly a hell of a lot longer than either of you, and I know damn well she wouldn't want her kids taken away from her or Sonny.

Courtney: Carly's children mean everything to her, Jason.

Jason: Bobbie gave Carly up for adoption -- did you know that? -- For the same reasons you're preaching right now -- to give her a better life. Carly never thanked Bobbie for that.

Courtney: Carly would do anything to protect those two boys.

Jason: This life isn't perfect. We know that. No life is. But Morgan and Michael are wanted here. They're loved; they're protected as well as they can be. Dragging those kids away from their parents is going to hurt them as badly as anything else will.

Courtney: That is not true, and Sonny knows it even if you don't!

Jason: Sonny, come on. Come on, she's panicking. It's plain and simple; don't let her take your kids away. You need time to focus and think on what Carly would really want, and that's for you to hold your family together.

Sonny: I can't do that right now. I'm on edge. Carly would want our sons to live. This is the only way to make sure.

Courtney: Thank you, Sonny.

Sonny: I'm asking you as a friend to help Courtney. To make sure she has everything she needs to take my boys away.

Lorenzo: I am just as determined as you are, Carly. I'll find a way to have you, not with threats or with guns. I'll have you because you choose me. You trust me now. I could build on that. So wake up and let me.

Elizabeth: Hey, Em.

Emily: Hi. Elizabeth, are you okay? You sounded so strange on the phone.

Elizabeth: Yeah, well, I feel kind of strange right now. You see, I -- I did something, and at the time it seemed right, and now I'm just wondering if it was a huge mistake.

Emily: Elizabeth, what are you trying to tell me?

Elizabeth: I -- um -- I ran into Zander tonight at Jakeís.

Emily: Uh-huh.

Elizabeth: And we had talked for a while and -- well, and then we -- we went up -- we went up to his room and we had sex. Em, I -- um -- he told me that the two of you were over.

Emily: Yeah, no --

Elizabeth: I -- I went up to his room because I wanted to do something that Ric would never be able to forgive. I just wanted to -- to shut off my thoughts for a while and be in another place.

Emily: No. You don't have to explain.

Elizabeth: But I feel like I should've come to you first and made sure the two of you really had split before I took his word. I'm really sorry, Em.

Emily: No, I'm not angry.

Elizabeth: Well, you have every right to be.

Emily: Elizabeth, I made love to Nikolas tonight. Zander -- Zander walked in and -- and was devastated. And I've made my choice, and it's Nikolas. If -- if Zander left and decided to sleep with you, that's his choice. You know, I -- I can't criticize. I just hope that it doesn't end up hurting both of you even more.

Zander: Oh, my God. What do you want from me? You come here to gloat? The best man won?

Nikolas: No, that's not why --

Zander: Then what do you want? You already slept with Emily. What else do you want from me?

Chase: How about a variation of strip poker? For every card I show, you take off an article of clothing.

Sam: Okay, fair enough. Card first.

Chase: Dress first.

Sam: Oh, you think you're calling all the shots?

Chase: I'm the one with the cards.

Sam: Turned on yet?

Chase: It's not like I haven't seen it all before. And I do look forward to another viewing.

Sam: It's real.

Chase: You thought I'd cheat you?

Sam: Yeah, in a heartbeat. If you could, you would.

Chase: What next?

Sam: Oh, another special thrill.

Chase: Keep going. Uh-uh -- that doesn't count as clothing.

Sam: Fine.

[Chase chuckles]

Chase: I'm liking this better and better.

Sam: Makes one of us, anyhow.

Chase: I can't wait to see what you take off next.

[Sam sighs]

[Chase chuckles]

Chase: Let the games begin.

Sam: Go and hide your cards.

Sam: Come on over, Chase.

Chase: Yeah. I knew you couldn't resist me.

Sam: Come on, baby.

Chase: Baby, I'm going to give you the time of your life.

[Sam screams]

Chase: What the hell are you doing here?

Jax: I changed my mind.

Sonny: Hey, Carly. Our children are leaving town tonight. Courtney's taking them to a safe place. I need to take better care of Michael and Morgan than I took of you, that's obvious. I don't want to put them in any more danger. But if you think for whatever reason that I'm making a mistake, you need to wake up. Help me find what's right for our family.

Jason: Yeah, the S.U.V.'s parked downstairs and Morganís car seat's already inside.

Courtney: Okay.

Jason: The car is owned by one of Sonny's holding companies. Meyer will have it transferred to your name first thing tomorrow morning. He's going to set up a bank account for you in Hayes' Landing. The transfers will come from Switzerland. They'll be untraceable.

Courtney: Thank you for arranging all this.

Jason: Sonny asked me to.

Courtney: Jason, I know that you're angry --

Jason: You made your decision. Sonny's backing you up. This is $100,000 in cash for traveling money to hold you over till your first transfer.

Courtney: Isn't that a little much for a trip under 100 --

Jason: You insisted on doing this. Just do it right, okay?

Courtney: I just wish that you could understand.

Jason: It's late. You should get going.

Courtney: I love you, Jason. I always will. I'm just doing what I think is right. Where are you going?

Jason: Look, I've made the arrangements. I can't -- I can't help you get those kids in the car.

Courtney: Don't you even want to say goodbye to them?

Jason: I'm going to have to lie to Michael, pretend that this is a good idea when I know it's absolutely wrong.

Michael: Daddy?

Sonny: Michael, hey.

Courtney: Michael wanted to say goodbye before we got on the road.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah, I want to say goodbye, too.

Michael: When can we come back?

Sonny: Uh -- we got to wait till Mommy wakes up. Do you want to give Mommy a kiss?

Michael: Yes.

Sonny: Okay, be careful because she's got stuff, you know -- okay, watch her, watch her.

Michael: Bye, Mommy. Morgan, too?

Sonny: Yeah. Morgan, too?

Michael: Yep.

Sonny: All right. Uh -- let's see.

[Morgan fusses]

Sonny: Hey. Hey. Hey.

[Morgan fusses]

Sonny: Hey.

Michael: It's okay.

Sonny: It's okay. There you go. Your little boys are here, Carly. They all love you, so do I.

Michael: Wake up soon, Mommy.

Sonny: Okay, you ready?

Michael: Yep.

Sonny: It's time to go.

Sonny: It's okay, it's okay, it's okay.

[Sonny sighs]

Sonny: It's okay.

Courtney: I hope you understand, Carly. I'm just trying to keep your children safe. I think it's what you'd want. Just, please, come back to us soon, okay? We all need you more than you know.

Michael: Will you come and see us?

Sonny: I'm going to call you, okay? Every day we're going to talk on the phone.

Michael: Okay.

Sonny: I'll be thinking about you. Every day I'm going to think about you, because I love you, okay? Give me a hug.

Michael: I love you, too, Daddy.

[Morgan fusses]

Courtney: Hey.

Sonny: Shh.

Courtney: Hey.

Sam: Oh, I'm sure Chase has taken the cards and disappeared because you had to come charging in there like some white -- knight! When are you going to get that I don't need to be rescued?

Jax: Huh!

Sam: I have been taking care of myself for years. I am not a helpless woman!

Jax: That is an understatement!

Sam: Then what is your problem? Are you just so torn up at the thought of my sleeping with another man that you can't think straight?

Jax: You know what? Actually, I thought about that when you and Chase were leaving the bar together.

Sam: Well, it's nice you can finally be honest.

Jax: No, no, not about that, no. It was actually -- see, I couldn't risk you getting your grubby, thieving, little hands on those cards, so I'd rather deal with Chase directly. And by all means, sleep with whomever you like.

Michael: Jason. Are you going with us?

Jason: Uh -- you know what, buddy? I got to stay here and help your dad. But if you need me, you know I'll be there for you. And just remember that I love you, okay? Okay.

Jason: Goodbye, Morgan, I'll see you soon.

Michael: Well, aren't you going to kiss Aunt Courtney goodbye?

Jason: Just take good care of her, buddy.

Courtney: Bye.

[Morgan fusses]

Courtney: It's okay.

Sonny: It's so hard, you know, to let our children go. I don't know how else to keep them safe. You got to come back to me. Otherwise, I'm not going to have a home to bring them back to. You can't let that happen, Carly. I don't want to lose our boys.

Sonny: You got to come back to me.

Carly: Are you okay?

Sonny: I get like this when I'm in enclosed places, you know? No reason for it. I just -- I'm sorry you have to watch.

Carly: No, no, no. I'm -- I'm afraid to -- to drive. No, like, I mean, really afraid. I get paralyzed if I'm behind a wheel, so you don't need to explain. Ow.

Sonny: You okay? You all right?

Carly: Yeah.

Sonny: Is it the baby?

Carly: Oh, yeah, no -- the baby just kicked. It's cool. Maybe he or she's going to be a soccer player. Do you want to feel?

Sonny: No, no, I canít.

Carly: No, no, no, come on, come on, come on. Come here, feel, yeah. Do you feel that?

Sonny: No. Oh, wait. Like a little flutter or something?

Carly: Yeah, that's him. That's -- he's kicking, or she's kicking. Yeah. Ooh. Hey.

Sonny: I guess we're moving now.

Carly: Yeah. We're going to be rescued.

[Carly giggles]

Carly: Don't worry; we'll be out of here in a minute.

Sonny: Yeah.

Lorenzo: Hey.

Carly: Hey.

Lorenzo: Are you all right?

Carly: Yeah, I'm fine. Oh.

Sonny: Hey, thank you.

Carly: Yeah. You're welcome.

Lorenzo: Why was he thanking you?

Carly: The baby kicked, and I let him feel it.

Lorenzo: I told you that night at Luke's, Corinthos is dangerous.

Carly: I couldn't exactly choose who I got stuck in an elevator with.

Lorenzo: I've told you about my family's business. I've never taken you to meet them because I don't want that life touching us. Corinthos is the same. He takes what he wants. He's ruthless. The further you are away from him, the better.

Sonny: See that woman over there?

Jason: Yeah, what about her?

Sonny: I want her followed 24/7.

Jason: All right, I'll get Benny on it. Why?

Sonny: Something about her gets to me, makes me care. I'm going to have her.

Sonny: I can't lose you, Carly.

Sonny: This should've never happened.

Sonny: I'm not letting you go.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Faith: Nothing personal. Kill him.

Ned: Alexis should be held accountable for what she did.

Doctor: You can go home today.

Lorenzo: I'm not going anywhere.

Sonny: Courtney took the children to a small town to keep them safe.

Courtney: There's somebody shooting at my house. Please hurry.
