Lorenzo: Why are you keeping me alive as promised? So Sonny can kill a man who's tethered to a wall and half starved? He'll be very proud of you.
Jason: Mmm. First tell me what you did to Carly.
Courtney: Hey. You ok?
Carly: Ah --
Courtney: What's wrong?
Carly: Hey -- he's in trouble.
Courtney: What happened to Sonny?
Carly: No, it's not Sonny, it's Alcazar, and I -- I don't even -- I don't know what to do. I can't handle this. I can't think, I -- I can't -- I can't drag you into this.
Courtney: Hey, hey, hey -- if you're this upset, I need to know what's going on.
Carly: No, no, you do not need to know about this.
Courtney: Carly, we're friends. I mean, whatever it is, maybe I can help.
Carly: Jason has Alcazar and when Sonny gets home, they're going to kill him.
Emily: Hey, the police let you go.
Nikolas: They didn't have enough evidence to hold me, of course.
Emily: The police wouldn't tell me anything. I -- I must have called Alexis about a million times.
Nikolas: It's all right. It's all right.
Emily: They can't seriously believe that you killed Cody McCall.
Nikolas: It's early in the investigation. They have to question everyone.
Emily: But why don't -- why don't they go after that fence? I mean, he tried to kill me. He probably -- he probably killed Cody.
Nikolas: I -- I can't prove that he even exists.
Ben: I'm tracking Sam McCall. I need a boat and somebody who knows their way around Azure Key. I'm doing a little treasure hunting.
Sonny: All right, how's that feel? Huh?
Sam: You're so good to me.
Sonny: You shouldn't really talk, ok?
Sam: No, I'm sorry. I'm sorry for the lies.
Sonny: Eh, don't worry about it.
Sam: Look, you have to forgive me, ok?
Sonny: Ok, you know what?
Sam: I can't stand it. I can't stand it.
Sonny: You really need to just try to rest because I don't know -- know what --
Sam: I try. I try as hard as I can, but I'm scared, ok? I'm just scared.
Sonny: It's ok. You just got to get --
Sam: I'm scared.
Sonny: You got to get over, you know? You got to get through this thing here, you know what I'm saying?
Sam: Oh, I'm scared.
Sonny: It's all right. Does that feel better?
Sam: I love you, Jax.
Faith: Are you having a good time? Super. Lovely. Need anything here? Super. And how are we doing? Well, we're raking it in tonight.
Zander: It looks that way.
Faith: And all it took was a robbery and a shooting. The Haunted Star is the hottest spot in town.
Zander: For the moment.
Faith: Hello? Where are you?
Zander: I -- I have a lot on my mind.
Faith: What could be more important than me?
Sage: I don't care! What if Sonny's killed him?
Dillon: Stop, stop, stop, stop -- he's probably out doing business or something like that and -- and if he is, you need to stay out of it.
Sage: Maybe you're right.
Courtney: Are you sure Jason has Alcazar?
Carly: Jason told me to forget Alcazar.
Courtney: What, and that means Sonny will kill him?
Carly: You know, I shouldn't have told you this. It's why you left Jason in the first place.
Courtney: No, Carly, I still love Jason, but I still don't understand the way he justifies the things he does. I mean, how -- how can I love a man who just kills anyone who gets in his way?
Carly: Oh, come on, it's not that simple.
Courtney: Yes it is, Carly. That's just the point.
Carly: No, no.
Courtney: We can't stop them. We can't change anything. All we can do is -- all you can do is just wait.
Carly: Yeah, but you don't need to be a part of this. You've been hurt enough.
Courtney: Hey, I want to help in any way I can. I mean, even if it's just keeping you company.
Courtney: Come on. We could rent some videos. We could make some popcorn with a ton of butter. I have a date, but I can cancel, no problem.
Carly: Oh, you're going out with the cop again?
Courtney: You think it's a bad idea.
Carly: Well, I have my reasons not to like him, but hey, you know what? If he makes you happy, you need to just go for it.
Courtney: Hey, I wouldn't go that far.
Carly: Yeah well, ok, that's fine. It's just -- listen, don't cancel your date on account of me. I'm good. Listen, I'm fine, really I am.
Courtney: Are you sure?
Carly: Yeah, I'm good. Go. Go, go, go, go, go. Go.
Courtney: Ok. Oh -- I came over to volunteer for Michaelís skating party.
Carly: Great, I'll put you on that chaperone list.
Carly: Yeah, go.
Courtney: Hey, let me know if you need anything, ok?
Carly: Yeah. Just a way to explain to Jason that killing Alcazar is not going to help anything.
Lorenzo: I didn't do anything to Carly. I didn't have to.
Jason: You're taking advantage of her brain injury.
Lorenzo: I'm being honest with you. Carly's supposed to love her husband. She's trying to make her life work with Sonny. That's how loyal and strong she is. Sonny can't be bothered to even stay in town for her. She deserves better than that. She's starting to see that there's life after Sonny Corinthos. All right, you want me to make this easy? You can walk out this door, you can throw away the key, and you can leave me here to die a miserable death, or you can let Sonny come back and kill me. It won't change anything. I'm in Carlyís head and I'm in her heart. You can't change that. No one can.
Jason: You're right. You're free. Go ahead, go to Carly. But you're going to have to get past me first.
Nikolas: How far did you get in Blackthorn's journal?
Emily: Pretty deep.
Nikolas: Yeah and I'll bet Samís looking at his treasure map as we speak.
Emily: Yeah, it was definitely ripped out. But, I mean, it's weird, you know that -- that sentence about the only place that comes before his one true love -- he keeps writing it over and over.
Nikolas: Maybe it's a clue.
Emily: Yeah, well, maybe you have to be a -- maybe you have to be a pirate to figure it out. My own personal pirate, with a tattoo just like Blackthorn's.
Nikolas: That's right, that's right.
Emily: What are you doing?
Emily: Bad idea. Bad idea.
Nikolas: We have to get to that treasure before anybody else does.
Emily: Ok. Ok.
Nikolas: [British accent] And I want to find the whole fortune and lay it at your feet.
Emily: Hmm, I love it when you talk pirate. Ok, come on.
Nikolas: [Normal voice] Ok. Let's go.
Courtney: Hey. How do I look?
Waitress: You'll knock Jasonís socks off.
Ric: Courtney's a beautiful woman, isn't she? She's smart, she's sweet, very strong-willed. But she's the mark, detective, not the prize.
Brian: Don't worry about it. Courtney and I are going out tonight.
Ric: Lorenzo Alcazar has been reported missing. If Sonny grabbed him, then I'm sure Jason has something to do with it.
Brian: I'll see what I can do.
Ric: The sooner the better on this.
Brian: I don't want to push, all right, Courtney will get suspicious.
Ric: Well, think of it this way, detective. With Jason out of the way, you have a clear shot at Courtney. Isn't that what you want?
Brian: Sorry I'm late and -- wow -- you look fantastic.
Courtney: Thanks. So, you ready to roll?
Brian: I'm more than ready.
Courtney: Ok. Well, then let's just have a fabulous night and leave all of our troubles behind.
Lorenzo: Yeah, I could head for the door. You could tell Sonny I tried to escape and you had no choice but to kill me. It might even make you feel better. But it will not change how Carly feels. So go ahead, kill me if you want. She's going to hate you for it.
Jason: I doubt it.
Lorenzo: But you don't know for sure, do you? If Carly can survive this room, so can I. Thanks for dinner.
Jason: Make it last.
Carly: Hey Sonny, I -- I know you're going to come home as soon as you can. I just -- I just wanted to hear your voice, even if it's just on a message and I wanted to tell you I love you again.
Max: Listen, little lady --
Sage: Stop it!
Max: You can't go barging into people's houses and --
Sage: Get your hands off of me!
Max: That's not how it works around here. You understand that?
Sage: Leave me alone! Let me go!
Max: Do you understand what I'm saying? You're not going in there.
Carly: Hey! It's ok, Max. What do you want?
Sage: I have to find my uncle!
Carly: Well, I already told you --
Sage: Where's Sonny?
Carly: I have no idea. I --
Carly: Ok, are you out of your mind?
Max: That's it, you're --
Carly: What, you came here -- you came here to shoot my husband?
Max: That's it, she's out of here.
Sage: No. Stop it.
Carly: No, no, no, no, no. No, no. Leave her here. Leave us alone.
Max: I don't think that's a real good idea, Mrs. Corinthos.
Carly: Oh, you know what? I am in no danger.
Max: I'll be outside.
Carly: Thank you.
Carly: Hmm, it's very interesting. I used to run around town with guns. Did you know that? Hmm? I shot one of my exís in open court. I hit him too, and they had to put me away for it. I was young. I was desperate. I'm guessing you are too. Here. You go ahead. You do whatever it is you have to do. Go ahead.
Sage: Where's my uncle?
Carly: I don't know.
Sage: Where is Sonny?
Carly: He is out of town and he had absolutely nothing --
Sage: Stop lying!
Carly: To do with your --
Sage: You have to help me!
Sage: Because it's all your fault!
Emily: Can you imagine if they made it to that island? Just Constance and Blackthorn and the treasure.
Nikolas: We need to figure out which island.
Emily: A proper Quartermaine lady stranded with her pirate prince.
Emily: Can you imagine -- just -- just picture them in the moonlight, dancing, and the moonlight turns the sand to silver.
Nikolas: That's it, that's it. That's it. That's where the treasure is. Blood Point.
Ric: What's wrong?
Elizabeth: Zander wouldn't sign the papers. He says we're rushing him.
Ric: Oh, he's stalling.
Elizabeth: I don't know.
Ric: I was afraid of this.
Elizabeth: Maybe he just needs some more time, you know? The guy's lost so much already and now we're asking him to sign away his child. I --
Ric: Maybe you're right.
Elizabeth: Maybe we just need to be more patient.
Ric: Well, I could learn patience as long as you're the one who's tutoring me.
Elizabeth: Well, let's go check out that roulette wheel, get our mind off things.
Ric: That's a good idea. Why don't you go get us some chips, huh?
Elizabeth: Why don't you try not to harass Zander?
Ric: "Harass" is such a strong word, Mrs. Lansing.
Elizabeth: Jeez, you're impossible.
Ric: Elizabeth tells me that you're reluctant to sign the papers.
Zander: Well Ric, there's plenty of time. The baby's not going to be born for months.
Ric: Are we having second thoughts?
Zander: It depends.
Ric: On what?
Zander: How bad do you want the signature?
Ric: I already offered you money.
Zander: Forget money. What else do you bring to the table, Mr. A.D.A.?
Brian: Well, you are an excellent roulette player.
Brian: Ok, admit it. We're having the date from hell.
Courtney: Not from hell. Purgatory.
Courtney: I'm kidding, really.
Brian: No, you arenít. You look exactly like my wife before she burst into tears and told me what was really bothering her.
Courtney: Brian, I'm fine.
Brian: Please take this as a compliment, but you're a terrible liar.
Courtney: Yeah, I get that a lot.
Brian: Can I help? Is something bothering you?
Brian: Well, should we call it a night?
Courtney: No, no, no, not at all. Of course not.
Brian: Then what am I missing? It's serious, isn't it?
Carly: Ok. Ok, since you have a gun on me and all, why don't you tell me why your uncle's disappearance is my fault?
Sage: My dad used to say that Uncle Lorenzo was the smartest man he'd ever met. He never made a mistake until he met you. Your crazy husband shot him four times!
Carly: Yeah and your Uncle Lorenzo was wearing a bulletproof vest and not that it is any of your business, but Sonny was provoked. Your uncle has done everything he can to destroy what I love most, which is my husband, our lives together, and my family.
Sage: Yeah, well, Uncle Lorenzo is my family and if he dies, I'll have no one!
Carly: Ok, listen to me. I honestly do not know where your uncle is right now. But I do know that he would not want you searching for him. He would not want you running around town waving guns at people, even if they are not loaded. Come on, give me the gun, Sage, give it to me. Go home -- because that's what your uncle would want you to do. Go. Get.
Max: Do I go after her?
Carly: No. It's a big mess and I am the only person who can fix it.
Sam: I love you, Jax. You got to promise me --
Sonny: Ok, first of all, I think you're hallucinating a little bit, but you got to --
Sam: There's a map.
Sonny: What do you want me to promise you?
Sam: There's a map.
Sonny: A map?
Sam: The treasure and there's pages from the journal. You got to find them.
Sonny: Where did you --
Sam: And keep them safe, ok?
Sonny: Well, where did you put them?
Sam: Just find them.
Sonny: Where did you put the map?
Sam: Just keep it safe.
Sonny: Well, if you tell me where you put the map, I'll keep it --
Sam: Just keep it safe, please. Just --
[Sonny fingers through bag]
Sam: Keep it safe.
Sonny: If you tell me where you put the map, I'll keep it safe.
Sam: Keep it --
Dillon: Thank you.
Dillon: Hey, Jason -- excuse me, Jason?
Jason: What? What do you want?
Dillon: I'm sorry to bother you. Alcazar's niece said she's -- she's, like, worried because I guess Alcazar's missing or something like that, and she thinks something might have happened to him, so she came to me, and I guess I'm supposed to ask you if anything -- I should stay out of this.
Jason: That's right.
Dillon: You know, the thing is Sage, she's -- she's not -- she's not my girlfriend or, like, anything -- anything like that. I'm not even really her friend, but -- but she's scared, you know, and she's been bounced around a lot and I understand that and -- and she's not as tough as she pretends to be.
Jason: She showed up at Sonny's with a gun.
Dillon: Did she shoot anybody?
Dillon: And she's ok?
Jason: She just left the penthouse.
Dillon: With the gun?
Dillon: Oh, ok. All right, that's good. That's not great, but -- well, see, that's what I'm talking about. I mean, like, Alcazar's all she has. Without him, you know, I don't know what she's going to --
Jason: Dillon, I can't -- I can't help you.
Dillon: All right.
Jason: And if you care about Sage, you're going to keep her away from -- look at me -- you're going to keep her away from all this.
Courtney: You know, I just -- I can't stop thinking about Carly. You know, she's going through a really hard time right now, especially tonight.
Brian: Any idea why?
Courtney: No, I -- I almost bailed on you tonight so that I could keep her company.
Brian: Glad you didnít.
Courtney: It's ok. You know, Carly -- she is the strongest person I know. You know, I used to envy her and the way that she could love Sonny and ignore the things that he does. I thought that I could do that with Jason.
Brian: Are you sorry you can't?
Courtney: Sometimes. I mean, I -- Jasonís life isn't what I thought. It was exciting and scary. I think I just thought the deeper I got into it, the safer I'd feel, but I just felt more afraid.
Brian: I don't blame you.
Courtney: Anyway, I'm -- I'm better off away from all that, but Carly, she's -- she's stuck right in the middle.
Brian: Maybe more than she even realizes -- like when she warned Alcazar that Sonny was coming after him? If she hadn't and Alcazar had been killed, Carly would be just as guilty as the person who pulled the trigger.
Zander: You know how the law works in this town. You go after anybody you want.
Ric: If we think they're guilty.
Zander: And if you don't, you make them guilty. I know -- I've been there.
Ric: All right, let's just cut to the chase. What are you asking for?
Zander: You want me to sign away my rights; I want you to prosecute Nikolas Cassadine.
Emily: Did you find anything?
Nikolas: I'm checking another site. There must be some antique maps online somewhere.
Emily: How'd you come up with Blood Point?
Nikolas: Well, that -- that sentence that you said he kept writing over and over?
Emily: Yeah? Yeah?
Nikolas: I thought it might be a code. I marked it in there.
Emily: Oh. All right. "I've left the only place that comes before the name of my one true love, the key that rivals the gold in her hair and the sparkle in her eyes." Ok, so "key," "gold," and "sparkle" could mean "treasure," but how do you come up with Blood Point?
Nikolas: Well, what -- what initials come before Constance Quartermaine's?
Emily: Um -- the -- the letters B and P.
Nikolas: B.P., Blood -- Blood Point.
Nikolas: It's the only landing site in the journal that starts with those letters.
Emily: It's a stretch.
Nikolas: Yeah, I got it. Here, look at this -- come here. Look at this map.
Nikolas: Look, Blood Point --
Nikolas: Is on the island --
Emily: Island of Azure Key.
Nikolas: Azure key.
Emily: Oh, my -- do you think that's where the treasure is?
Nikolas: Well, it makes sense, don't you think?
Nikolas: Yep. Well, it's worth a trip. You interested? Oh!
Emily: Try and stop me.
Sam: You waited until I passed out and then you stole my map.
Sonny: Ok, whoa -- wait a minute here, ok. That's not -- you wanted me to look for it and then you thought I was Jax and you know -- I wasn't doing --
Sam: No, no, no, no, I didnít. Please don't --
Sonny: Yeah, you were -- you were delirious, ok, so I just decided to, you know --
Sam: Did I tell you where the treasure is?
Sonny: You wanted me to look for the map. You wanted me to keep it safe. What?
Sam: You could be lying.
Sonny: No, I'm not. I don't care about your treasure. We are stuck here, right, together whether we like it or not. I need to know who's coming after you.
Sam: No, no, no, you already --
Sam: You know too much already.
Sonny: Your life is on the line. So is mine.
Sam: Then leave.
Sonny: You're telling me what to do?
Sam: Leave me alone!
Brian: I'm sorry. We were supposed to leave all our troubles behind tonight and what do I do? Shove you right into them.
Courtney: Sometimes it helps to get things out in the open and sometimes it doesnít. You know, it's just the sooner that I'm able to let go of Jason and that whole world, the better I'll feel.
Brian: I agree.
Courtney: Being with you helps. Thank you.
Brian: You know, how about we cash in those chips and go have some dinner?
Courtney: Sounds like a plan.
Faith: You seemed awfully chummy with the A.D.A. What could you possibly have had to discuss with the milkmaid and her new hubby?
Zander: I'll explain later.
Faith: Ah --
Zander: I got to go.
Faith: No, no, no. You come back here. Wait a second -- oh! I suppose "excuse me" would be too much to ask.
Jason: You brought in extra people.
Faith: Yeah, I was robbed. I need more security.
Jason: You're taking a risk.
Faith: And you're being paranoid. Look, I'm not gearing up for another ambush. See, I don't have to. Sonny and Alcazar are going to cancel each other out and then it will be just you and me. I'm looking forward to that, aren't you?
Jason: Double the surveillance on the Haunted Star. Sonny's not reachable. I'll handle things till he calls in.
Courtney: Shouldn't you be guarding your prisoner?
Lorenzo's voice: I love you, Carly. I always will.
Carly: No, no.
Lorenzo: Mrs. Corinthos. It's a pleasure to meet you. You love me, too. You can't help yourself. You can't stop.
Carly: Just stay.
Lorenzo's voice: You don't want to. You love me today, tomorrow, forever. You're safe. You're safe, Carly. You love me. How would you know I'm lonely unless you're lonely, too? You love us.
Carly: Ah, it hurts!
Lorenzo: We're almost there. I think I see the head.
Carly: Oh, God, help me! Ah!
Carly: No, I don't love you. God, I don't -- I don't love you.
Carly: Oh, God, my head! Ah! Oh, God.
Carly: Oh, my God, leave me alone. Leave me alone!
Sam: What are you doing? Sonny, how long was I out?
Sonny: I didn't look at the map, if that's what you're asking. I didn't steal anything, actually.
Sam: Why not?
Sonny: Because I don't steal from women.
Sam: Look, I thought I told you to leave.
Sonny: Yeah, well, you know, usually, I don't -- I don't do what other people tell me to do, especially when they -- they yell at me.
Sam: Well, you could've called your pilot and flown away.
Sonny: Yeah, I could have. You know anything about honor?
Sam: It isn't what I'm best at.
Sonny: Well, you -- you know, you helped me out on a bad night and I'm just returning the favor.
Emily: Ok. I'm ready.
Nikolas: Maybe -- maybe I should go alone. What do you --
Emily: Would you like me to knit while I'm waiting for you to come back?
Nikolas: I -- I know you think I'm overprotective, but I'm not.
Emily: Yeah, it's a bad habit, but you'll get over it. Come on, let's go. Ben the fence could be stealing treasure as we speak.
Nikolas: Do you know how crazy you make me? Do you know?
Emily: Yeah, but you love it anyway.
Nikolas: Yes, I do.
Emily: Ok. I think -- I think we better go now.
Nikolas: Yeah, you're right, or we may never leave at all.
Ric: Leaving town?
Nikolas: What are you doing here?
Emily: What -- did you find out who killed Cody?
Ric: As a matter of fact, we did. Nikolas Cassadine, you're under arrest for the murder of Cody McCall.
Sonny: What are you doing?
Sam: Burning the treasure map. I memorized it.
Sonny: So now you're the only one who knows how to find the treasure?
Sam: Yeah, that's right.
Sonny: I thought you were smarter than that.
Sam: What? The map was a liability.
Sonny: No, it was your insurance policy.
Sam: What is that supposed to mean?
Sonny: Well, it -- before, if somebody wanted the treasure, all they had to do was grab the map. Now they're going to grab you instead.
Emily: Alexis? I'm so glad you picked up. No, Ric Lansing and some cop just arrested Nikolas. Yeah -- murder. Yeah, I'll meet you there.
Zander: Well, they arrested Nikolas, didn't they?
Emily: Zander, what are you doing here?
Zander: What if I said I could make all this go away?
Courtney: You're holding Alcazar so Sonny can kill him, aren't you? Carly told me.
Jason: Carly knows better than that.
Courtney: Jason, she was upset. She needed someone to confide in.
Jason: Listen, this is business. It has nothing to do with you.
Courtney: Come on. Alcazar is going to die because he tried to seduce Sonny's wife. That isn't business, Jason. That's as personal as it gets.
Jason: There's nothing you can do about any of this.
Courtney: So is that -- is that what will happen to us? If I date someone that you don't like, are you just going to kill him, too?
Dillon: Hey, hold on a second.
Sage: Let go of me!
Dillon: What are you thinking, going to Sonny's place with a gun? Do you realize how incredibly stupid that is?
Sage: You know what -- are you my babysitter? No! Are you my boyfriend? God no!
Dillon: Well, I'm your friend or at least the closest thing you've got to that. Ok?
Sage: Then help me find my uncle.
Dillon: Do -- do you ever think that maybe you've got this backwards? Maybe your uncle doesn't want to be found?
Lorenzo: I knew you'd find me.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Dillon: I am so in over my head right now.
Nikolas: You didn't have enough evidence to hold me after questioning. Now I'm being charged with murder?
Emily: How did you even know that Nikolas was arrested?
Brian: You just love to make Courtney cry, don't you?
Carly: Leave town tonight or die.
