Georgie: Maxie! Maxie! It's official. Tom gave me a promise ring.
Maxie: No way, let me see. Oh my gosh.
Sonny: Will you sit down for a second? Ok look, you know, this is -- I'm tired. I'm tired of getting soaked every five minutes, hurricanes, tunnels. I am not going after you one more time.
Sam: Well, did I ask you to? Anyway, what is so important about saving me?
Jason: Where's Carly?
Faith: Well, I put her in my purse. I mean, God, look at me, Jason. I mean, I know you're not the brightest bulb, but if I had Carly, would I really be here like this?
Jason: All right, Faith, don't make me ask you again.
Faith: It was Alcazar, ok? He stuffed me in the damn straitjacket and he carried your precious Carly away.
Lorenzo: You'll be safe here.
Lorenzo: Yes, it's me. I won't let anyone or anything harm you.
Carly: I love you, Lorenzo.
Georgie: Isn't it incredible?
Maxie: It's amazing. Ok, tell me everything.
Georgie: Ok, so Tom asked me to meet him in the park.
Georgie: He brought some hot chocolate and we're sitting there, we're talking. There's little kids playing in the background having a snowball fight --
Maxie: Come on, come on, Georgie -- ok, get to the good stuff, come on.
Georgie: Hey, Iím trying to paint a picture here.
Maxie: I get it! Go.
Georgie: Ok, ok, ok. So we're sitting there, all right? Tom reaches in his pocket and pulls out the ring. I almost died. He said that he wanted us to be committed to each other and that we weren't allowed to see anyone else.
Maxie: And did you just die?
Georgie: Of course I did! And of course I said yes.
Georgie: And he put the ring on my finger and gave me this kick-ass kiss!
Maxie: Oh my God.
Georgie: I am the luckiest girl in the entire world.
Maxie: Yes, you are.
Georgie: I know.
Maxie: Oh my God, you were so brilliant. He bought every single word.
Jason: Now you find Alcazar. You don't approach him. You find him, you let me know where he is, you don't let him leave, and you do not shoot. You check every building and house that guy owns and every hotel in town. You got it?
Faith: Oh, don't give me that evil eye. I had nothing to do with what happened to Carly. I didn't know she was here!
Jason: Faith, you're lying.
Faith: I was following Alcazar.
Faith: For my own reasons that are none of your business. Look, he was already here. He put me in this thing before Iíd even seen her. I don't know anything!
Courtney: Someone's coming.
Faith: Oh, great. Maybe a third party will be able to recognize the truth. Look, there is a big mistake going on here.
Orderly: This patient isn't supposed to receive visitors.
Faith: I do not belong here. I'm not the patient!
Orderly: She's scheduled for a transfer to Ferncliff.
Faith: What are you talking about?
Jason: We were just -- we were just saying goodbye because Frances Walsh here is very violent and she's very delusional.
Faith: Listen to me. This is ridiculous. This pig here is trying to get me out of the way. He's a mob enforcer.
Jason: See what Iím saying? It's very --
Courtney: Like he said, she's delusional.
Jason: It's very sad.
Orderly: Not to worry. We've had lots of experiences with difficult patients.
Faith: No, no, no, listen to me, listen to me. I am not the patient. I am not the patient, all right? No, there's a mistake. Please check your records! There is a mistake. I'm going to get you! I'm going to get you, you double-crossing bastard! I'm going to get you!
Courtney: Bye, Auntie Frances.
Sam: I'm -- Iím sorry. I hope I did not come off ungrateful. Jax and I would be dead if it weren't for you, but I am fine now and someone is about to walk away with my fortune.
Sonny: Let them. Obviously, this thief is willing to kill for this treasure. If you keep going after it, they're going to get the job done, which would be, you know, a sad thing, a waste of a beautiful woman. But what concerns me is that this thief, thieves -- whatever they are -- if they're any kind of professional, they're going to want to cover their tracks, which means eliminating any witnesses and that means me. I am not going to die a happy man over some stupid treasure. You get what Iím saying?
Sam: Yes, I do, but you are not in any danger.
Sonny: Yeah, and I'm going to make sure of that because Iím going to wait right here until my pilot shows up, and so are you -
Sam: No, I'm not! You can't do --
Sonny: Ok, wait, listen to me. There is no need for debate. I am not -- I am not going to risk my life again. I got way too much to go home to.
Lorenzo: You don't know how much Iíve wanted to hear you say that. I love you too, Carly, with all my heart. When I heard you were in trouble, trapped in that place, nothing could've stopped me from getting to you.
Carly: Because you love me.
Carly: And I have to love you, too. It's what she said.
Lorenzo: "She" who? Faith?
Carly: She said that the only way out of there was to love you.
Lorenzo: She lied, Carly. You don't have to say anything you don't mean, not for any reason.
Carly: Don't -- don't take me back there, though, please. Please don't take me back. I did everything that you wanted me to. Jason's dead!
Lorenzo: No, he's not.
Carly: Yes, he is. I killed him. I killed him. I did what you wanted. I put the syringe in his chest. Why? Why did you want me to do that?
Lorenzo: I didn't.
Carly: Why did you do this to me?
Lorenzo: Are you all right? What are you saying?
Carly: I'm sorry, Iím sorry, I'm sorry -- I love you. I promise, I promise I love you. I will. I will. I will, I will.
Jason: Hey, thanks for getting over here so fast.
Justus: You said it was an emergency. What are we looking at?
Jason: Carly disappeared from Shadybrook. Faith says that Alcazar took her and I actually believe her.
Justus: What was Carly doing at Shadybrook in the first place?
Jason: Well, she checked herself in. Details don't matter. Right now I'm just telling you what you need to know.
Justus: Go on.
Jason: Ok. Alcazar left Faith in Carlyís place.
Courtney: In a straitjacket.
Justus: How thoughtful of him.
Jason: Well, it worked for me because I just had Faith committed to Ferncliff under an assumed name. Your job is to make sure she stays there.
Faith: What is this, purgatory? You can't seriously expect me to stay here!
Orderly: This is your room for the time being.
Faith: Yeah, and? Wait! Wait! Take this thing off me.
Orderly: After your preliminary examination, the doctor will decide whether or not it comes off.
Faith: Well then, get the doctor. Look, I have been set up. I don't belong here! Look, get the doctor now, or Iím going to sue this place off the map! Get back here!
Lorenzo: Try and relax.
Carly: This water is too hot.
Lorenzo: It's supposed to be that way. The heat will make you feel better.
Carly: Yeah? Who says so?
Lorenzo: A doctor friend of mine. Here.
Carly: I don't want any doctors.
Lorenzo: He's not coming. He just told me how to help you. You just want the drugs out of your system. You need to drink lots and lots of water, Carly. Ok? Here. Then you can go to sleep and in the morning you'll wake up and everything will be different.
Carly: Ow. Oh --
Lorenzo: They got you pretty good at Shadybrook, didn't they?
Carly: Yeah. I don't -- I don't want to go back there.
Carly: You're real, right?
Carly: Because sometimes you're not. Sometimes -- sometimes you're just in my head and you say things that scare me. You make me do things and I don't want you in my head anymore. It just confuses me.
Lorenzo: I'm right here, Carly, and I am going to take such good care of you.
Carly: Thank you.
Sonny: You know what, Sam? You might as well just land somewhere and get comfortable.
Sam: When Iím stuck in here with you -- against my will, I might add -- instead of out reclaiming my fortune?
Sonny: Can I ask you something?
Sonny: Are you pathologically greedy or just incredibly single-minded?
Sam: You are in no position to criticize. Weren't you being greedy when you kept breaking the law to get rich? Weren't you single-minded when you walked up to Alcazar and fired four bullets point-blank?
Sonny: Ah, you might have a point somewhere, but if -- you know, if Iím greedy, if that's what you want to call it, my greed has resulted in several profitable businesses. I own them. They generate not only money for me and my family, but for other people and me going after Alcazar was about defending my family and the woman I love. You, on the other hand, are chasing a -- you know, some old junk that never belonged to you in the first place.
Sam: Hmm. It must be easy for you with your kids and your happy marriage, your power, your profitable business. How could I ever expect you to understand what drives me? How badly I want just one -- that's it -- one good thing in my life that's all mine.
Sage: Dillon, you checked your messages. I wasn't expecting such a quick response.
Dillon: Uh, no, I didn't. I didn't check my messages. The cut over my eye reopened. I had to go to the hospital.
Sage: You're ok, aren't you?
Dillon: I've been better, but I'll live.
Sage: Well, I bet I can turn your mood around!
Dillon: I bet you can't!
Sage: Do you want to hear before you decide to hate it?
Dillon: Fine. What?
Sage: Ok. It took a lot of networking, but I managed to get us on the winter formal dance committee. They're meeting now, over there.
Dillon: You've got to be kidding me.
Sage: It'll be fun!
Dillon: No, no, not for me.
Sage: I get it -- you want to mope around by yourself while Georgie tells the whole world about her fabulous new boyfriend and how he was everything you werenít. You said you were ready to move on. Trust me to show you how.
Sonny: You all right?
Sam: He looks -- he looks really bad.
Sonny: No. It may be worse than it looks, but it doesn't look like it hit any vital organs.
Jax: Coming from you with your vast experience of gunshot wounds, I actually feel quite reassured.
Sam: Jax, who did this to you?
Jax: It was that damn pirate, whoever he is. Oh, I got away from him and I made my way here.
Sam: Why did you leave me in the first place?
Jax: Because I've been told that I have a rescue complex. I wanted to find the treasure for you, Sam, and bring it to you. I'm sorry that I couldnít. You're going to have to find your security some other way.
Sonny: Jax, you need to focus. We got to get the bullet out. Jax!
Jax: Sam can do it.
Jax: Hey, I have two choices, and I prefer you.
Sam: I'm sorry, Jax, but I can't do that.
Jason: You need to do whatever it takes to have the records of Carlyís time at Shadybrook destroyed. This has to be like it never happened.
Justus: That'll take some doing.
Courtney: Ok, what if we threaten to sue? I mean, someone on that staff drugged Carly against her will without her doctor's consent.
Justus: I assume that's where you think Faith Rosco comes in.
Jason: That's exactly where Faith came in. She either paid or intimidated someone into drugging Carly and then arranged for her to be transferred to Ferncliff under this name of Frances Walsh. That way no one could have a record of Carly or ever find Carly again.
Justus: What would be Faith's motive?
Courtney: The woman's insane. She doesn't need one.
Jason: Faith probably thought she could hold Carly hostage, use her against Sonny -- and Alcazar, for that matter. Instead, Alcazar shows up, took Carly, left Faith in Carlyís place. Faith stays at Ferncliff until further notice.
Justus: I'll try to make this happen, but I'm still not clear on one thing. Did Alcazar kidnap Carly or rescue her?
Carly: Hmm. How come it never feels as good when you brush your own hair as when someone else does it?
Lorenzo: It's one of life's great mysteries. Now, finish your water.
Carly: Oh. I have been sitting in this tub and I have been drinking and drinking and drinking. I'm going to just float away.
Lorenzo: I'll tell you what -- you finish that glass and I will release you from the tub and let you go to sleep and in the morning, the drugs will be out of your system and you get to decide what to do next.
Carly: Are you happy now?
Lorenzo: I'm thrilled beyond words. Let's get you dried off.
Lorenzo: I'm going to get you another towel for your hair.
Girl: Listen up, everybody. We totally owe Sage a huge debt of gratitude. Thanks to her, we have the best location ever. This year's winter formal will be held at --
Second girl: I hate it when you do that. Just spit it out.
First girl: The Versailles room.
Second girl: How did you pull that off?
Sage: Well, Dillonís family owns the Port Charles hotel and I have it in with his mother.
Girl: It must totally rock to own a hotel.
Sage: The Quartermaines are really generous when it comes to Dillon.
Girl: Well, I totally think generosity should be rewarded. In that spirit, I hereby nominate Dillon and Sage for this year's king and queen of the winter formal.
Dillon: Um -- I'm going to be -- Iím going to be very clear about this. No. No way.
Girl: Excuse me? It's not like being nominated for dogcatcher or anything. It's a total honor.
Sage: Dillon didn't mean that the way it sounded. He just doesn't like making a big deal about being a Quartermaine. Besides, you don't have to thank us for the Versailles room. It's a gift.
Girl: That is so totally cool.
Second girl: We still need a king and a queen. The coronation is the highlight of the dance.
Sage: I know. How about Georgie Jones and her boyfriend Tom?
Georgie: Hey, thank you for your help and I do mean this as a compliment -- you're a great liar.
Maxie: You're not too bad yourself. Besides, that was perfect timing. I mean, you come in after a perfect date with Tom just as Dillon is leaving.
Georgie: Do you know why he was here, by the way? I mean, was he hurt or anything?
Maxie: Something about getting his wound rebandaged.
Maxie: Hey, let me see that ring? I knew it. That's grandma's. You took that on mom's dresser.
Georgie: Yeah, like she's really going to notice it all the way from Texas.
Maxie: Yeah, but that's supposed to be mine someday.
Georgie: No, it's supposed to be whoever gets married first and you never know -- that could be me.
Maxie: Come on. Who are you planning on marrying, Georgie? Tom? The guy that you invented to make Dillon jealous? Tom isn't real, ok? I mean, your plan may be working just fine, but you might want to think twice if you really want an imaginary boyfriend to come between you and Dillon forever.
Sam: I -- I would do anything for you, Jax, but I am not a doctor. I have never had any medical training.
Sonny: Like I have?
Sam: Look, I can't just poke inside of him with a pair of tweezers and that's all we have. I could hurt you even worse. I could kill you.
Jax: Don't worry about it, ok? We'll just wait out the storm and then we'll get a doctor and up until then, Iíll just sleep it off.
Sam: No! Jax, you can't go to sleep, please. You canít. Open your eyes. Jax, please -- we both know he may not make it through the storm. You have to take that bullet out.
Sonny: Don't look at me.
Sam: He said you had experience with bullet wounds.
Sonny: Yeah, I've been shot a lot, but that doesn't mean I know how to remove bullets.
Sam: If you don't take it out, he's going to die.
Sonny: Look, everybody knows that we hate each other, right? Cops are going to think that I botched the operation just to make it worse. I can't risk that.
Sam: No, no -- look at me. You don't understand. I cannot take it out. It's impossible.
Sonny: I'll help you out.
Sam: No, you don't get it! I have a fear of blood, ok? I'm afraid and I know it's not rational, but the fear is real and it's paralyzing. Someone like you who's big and tough, and you're, like, this mobster and everything -- you couldn't understand. But because of me and my fear, and -- and my stupid greed, he may die! Unless you can step past your hatred and -- and save him. Please, Sonny, I am begging you. Please, help him.
Cameron: There you go. It states that I am Carlyís physician of record and that she was released with my permission. It should be all you need.
Courtney: We appreciate this.
Justus: Better get up to Shadybrook. Thank you, doctor.
Courtney: And you know, thank you for helping Carly.
Jason: The -- the drug Carlyís on -- what's it doing to her? What effect?
Cameron: Well, you tell me. It's the same thing she injected you with. What do you remember?
Jason: Nothing. From the time Carly stabbed me with the needle until Courtney and I got back to Shadybrook, it's -- it's all a blank.
Courtney: What about the loft?
Jason: What -- what do you mean? What about it?
Courtney: You don't remember being there?
Courtney: That's where I found you. I mean, you were groggy, but you weren't completely out of it. I mean, you were walking around and talking to me.
Cameron: The sedative we're dealing with can block out the memory of what happened while under its influence, even if the person appeared to be rational at the time.
Courtney: Like a date rape drug?
Cameron: Very much so.
Courtney: Which means that Carly could sleep with Alcazar and not even realize that she did it.
Lorenzo: I love you.
Carly: I love you. No! No! You stop this! You stop this!
Carly: You promised -- you promised you would stay out of my head!
Lorenzo: Carly, Iím here. This is real.
Carly: No! No! You say this! You always say this! You do this, and I see you, and I can't stop! I don't want this, Lorenzo!
Lorenzo: All right, all right, all right. I'm backing off, all right?
Carly: God, Lorenzo! Just stop. Stop making me want you. Just stop. Stop.
Girl: No way will this committee ever approve Georgie Jones for winter queen. The girl is a total loser. No class, no style, no friends that matter. Maybe you're too new here to understand, but --
Dillon: Georgie Jones has more style and class in her sleep than you'll ever have in a waking lifetime of clichťd, banal predictability.
Girl: For your information, I'm in A.P. Lit and I plan on going to Brown so I do understand what "clichť" and "banal" mean. I also understand that no one is going to buy one of the least popular girls in school being crowned winter queen. And who is this boyfriend of hers? Does anyone even know him?
Sage: Look, I'm no big fan of Georgie Jones' either. But she's a friend of Dillonís, and he is providing the location for the dance.
Girl: Fine. The nominees for king and queen are Georgie Jones and her totally mysterious boyfriend. All those in favor, raise your hand.
Sage: Georgie! We were just talking about you. Dillon, why don't you tell Georgie the good news.
Faith: Don't you have a watch? I asked for you hours ago! Look, forget it. Just tell me what it's going to take to get out of here.
Man: Hello Frances, I'm Dr. Murdoch. I'm here for your initial case review.
Faith: Ok -- first of all, my name is not Frances. It's Faith -- Faith Rosco. Look, I own a nightclub in Port Charles. Ok, listen, a business rival who wants me out of the way sent me here under an assumed name and just so you know, at this point I am willing to do anything to get out of here.
Sonny: You're going to be all right, Jax.
Courtney: God, Iím just -- I'm terrible at waiting.
Jason: That's all we can do. Thanks to Justus, Carly is legally free to do whatever she wants to do.
Courtney: Well, I'm just glad that Cameron didn't argue authorizing Carlyís release.
Jason: If he had, I would -- I mean, what -- what was he thinking, letting Carly check herself into Shadybrook in the first place and then leaving her all alone?
Courtney: Well, at least he's trying to help now.
Jason: Yeah. Thank you.
Courtney: For what?
Jason: You know, finding me at the loft, caring enough to -- to look for me. Staying with me while I was drugged out of my mind.
Courtney: You were in trouble, Jason. You know, I wasn't going to stop looking for you until I found you and once I did, nobody could have dragged me away.
Jason: You know, I'm not -- I'm not clear on a lot. How did you know where I went?
Courtney: Cameron said that your instinct would take over and that you'd probably go to someplace that meant something to you.
Jason: I guess he was right about that. You know, our loft is the best place I ever lived. That time that we had -- no one knew about us -- was the best time of my life.
Courtney: You told me that.
Jason: What? I did?
Jason: Ok, what else did I -- what else did I say?
Courtney: Well, you -- you kissed me when I walked in and then you told me that you missed me and that I was your whole life.
Jason: Well, you are. Yeah, you know, I understand why you left me and I don't expect you to come back, but I love you and I always will.
Lorenzo: Are you more comfortable?
Carly: Yeah. The bed's really comfortable for a safe house and the pajamas -- they're great. Thank you. I feel more comfortable wearing clothes. I'm -- Iím sorry -- I'm sorry that I flipped out like that. You probably think that I belong in Shadybrook after all. Yeah, that's why you're sitting all the way across the room.
Lorenzo: I don't want to upset you. If I could, I would leave you alone, give you your privacy. But until the drugs are out of your system, I'm afraid you could hurt yourself.
Carly: I understand. You can come closer. I just want to thank you.
Lorenzo: Carly, you do not owe me any thanks.
Carly: Yeah, I do, because you got me out of that horrible place and you've been very, very patient with me and very kind.
You know, for an obsessed stalker, you're -- you're very nice to me.
Lorenzo: Ok. Now it's my turn. I owe you my profoundest apologies. I really do love you, Carly, and I have been so drawn to you because you're like no one Iíve ever seen or known. You're so strong, so resourceful, so full of light. I just want to be bathed in that light and I thought I could give you the life you deserve and I was arrogant enough to believe that my love would justify anything I had to do to get to you and I now see how wrong that was. Instead of making you happier, I've shattered your life. I never wanted to see you so broken, torn. That's exactly what I've done to you and I am so sorry. All right, it's over.
Carly: What -- what? Wait, what do you -- what do you mean?
Lorenzo: I cannot destroy the one thing in my life that I love the most. I'm letting go.
Girl: Congratulations, Georgie.
Second girl: It'll be fun.
Georgie: Congratulations for what?
Maxie: If you've set some trap for Georgie or done anything to hurt her, I will personally rip every single hair out of your head!
Dillon: Maxie, hey, do you really think that I would let them do anything --
Georgie: Would somebody please tell me what's going on here?
Sage: Wait -- call off your rabid sister and relax. This is good news. You and Tom were named king and queen of the winter formal.
Faith: And Jason Morgan told those idiots at Shadybrook that my name was Frances Walsh and had me transferred here to Ferncliff. So, as you can see, this is clearly a case of mistaken identity compounded by an ongoing mob vendetta.
Dr. Murdoch: I see.
Faith: That's all you can say?
Dr. Murdoch: What would you like me to say?
Faith: I would like you to say you're going to get this straitjacket off of me!
Dr. Murdoch: The nurse will remove it when she comes to get you settled in for the night.
Faith: What? Wait, wait, wait! You don't believe me?
Dr. Murdoch: We'll speak more again tomorrow, Frances.
Faith: Listen to me, listen to me -- call up -- call The Cellar in Port Charles! No, better, go online and call up the "Port Charles Herald," ok? Ok? Faith Rosco -- you'll see a picture of me! I'm telling the truth!
Dr. Murdoch: You were right, Mr. Ward. Your client is completely delusional.
Justus: I'm concerned about her capacity to do harm to herself and others. I need your assurance that neither will happen.
Faith: My name is Faith Rosco, damn it! Someone!
Jason: Stan, it's Jason. I need you to put a phone tap on Alcazar's line. He might call in to check in with his niece, all right? Just get it done and keep me posted.
Courtney: The boys are sound asleep. Any news?
Jason: Either Alcazar has a safe house that we don't know about or he managed to get Carly out of town.
Courtney: I just -- you know, I can't stop thinking about what's going to happen to Carly when she wakes up and finds herself with Alcazar.
Jason: At least we know he won't hurt her. Not physically, anyway.
Courtney: Wow. Never thought I'd hear those words come out of your mouth.
Jason: Me neither, but Alcazar wants Carly to choose him. Maybe she already has. I'm just mad at myself.
Jason: I feel like I could have headed this off and I didn't and now Carly could be lost. You know, even if she comes back, doesn't mean she's going to be here emotionally. Even if she is, I know Sonny. If Carly sleeps with Alcazar, he'll never be able to get past it.
Sonny: Whew. Oh, man. That's the biggest damn bullet Iíve ever seen.
Sam: It must have been from the flintlock pistol the pirate was carrying.
Sam: Sonny, you saved his life.
Sonny: Well, you know what, he's not out of the woods yet.
Sam: Yeah, but you took the bullet out and you stitched him up. He'll -- he'll be fine until he sees a doctor.
Sonny: If he lives, he'll probably sue me for assault.
Sam: No he won't. He's going to be grateful --
Sam: As he should be. As I am. Jax owes you his life. You reached into his side and you took out a bullet, even though you hated him. You're a good person, no matter how hard you try and pretend otherwise.
Sonny: I'm not good. I'm very, very bad. The only reason I saved candy boy's life was you.
Jason: Carly? Is that you?
Lorenzo: Oh Carly, tomorrow Iíll let go when you're awake and you can choose. Tonight I'm going to love and protect you one last time before I lose you forever.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Dillon: You'll make a beautiful queen.
Georgie: How did I get chosen?
Elizabeth: Ric is helping Zander set you up for murder, isn't he?
Faith: I am not thrilled at being stuck here in this nut house.
Ric: When Jason goes to jail, your relationship with Courtney will be over.
Jason: Why'd you let Brian into your life?
Carly: We made love, didn't we?
