(Missed a couple of seconds)

Brian: Obviously, you're injured.

Zander: I've done a lot wrong, but I didn't do this. Admit to me that Lansing is making you do this.

Brian: You're right. This whole thing's been a blur. A.D.A. Lansing took advantage of the shooting. He definitely wants to nail you.

Zander: His wife is pregnant with my baby. Hell, he signed away my rights, but he wants to make sure that I can't take them back.

Brian: Well, then Ricís breaking the law.

Zander: So you believe I didn't shoot you?

Brian: You're still breaking the law. Even if you're innocent in the shooting, you're still assaulting a police officer. Just put it down, and we can sort this out, ok?

Ric: You've seen Zander Smith, haven't you?

Maxie: I barely know him.

Ric: Maxie, I know your dad and he's very proud of you. Now, you're a good girl with a good heart, but that's something that Zander could take advantage of, all right? He'll play on your generosity. He'll make you think that he's falsely accused, that he's just misunderstood.

Maxie: People are innocent until proven guilty, right?

Ric: Yes, that's right, but if you help Zander, when he's arrested, you could be charged with a crime, as well.

Maxie: I don't understand.

Ric: It's called aiding and abetting a fugitive, all right? It means you'll be charged with a crime if we discover that you're the one who helped the perpetrator get away.

Maxie: Look, I -- I haven't seen him. I -- no, I haven't done anything. I haven't seen him in I don't even know how long.

Ric: You sure?

Maxie: Positive. You know, I really should get back to work.

Ric: All right, just one more thing. If -- if you happen to see Zander, I just want you to consider that he could be as dangerous as we say he is, all right? He's desperate, Maxie, he's cornered, all right? We just don't want to see anybody else get hurt, and if you help him in any way -- any way at all -- you're going to be held partially responsible. Believe me, I've been there. It's -- it's not a good feeling. The best thing you can do in a situation like this is to be honest and to work with the authorities.

Nurse: Security to room 528. A patient is being attacked.

Ric: Wait a minute -- isn't that Detective Beck's room?

Nurse: Security Officer Carlson, please contact the eighth-floor nurses' station. Security Officer Carlson, please contact --

Maxie: Oh, my God! Zander, what have you done?

Tracy: Because I want to bet on those numbers. Why do you argue with everything I do?

Alan: I want to know what they mean.

Tracy: They don't mean anything.

Justus: Don't you look satisfied.

Skye: Oh, and why shouldn't I be, I ask you? You here actually completes the set -- almost all the Quartermaines have come to my casino to spend their money. Well, with the exception of Dillon, of course, but he's a minor.

Justus: Well, you would -- you'd think with the state E.L.Q. is in, they'd stop throwing their money away.

Skye: Desperate times --

Justus: Not for you, though, huh? Casino's a big success.

Skye: Well, yeah, I -- I guess I can take some of the credit for that, given that Luke was missing in action and my silent partner has been rather supportive lately, and I think that I have you to thank for that. In fact, here. You take these chips --

Justus: What's this?

Skye: On the house and have a blast.

Justus: I'm so glad we're not related. It's way too much fun liking you.

[Skye chuckles]

Skye: Emily. Emily, what's the matter? You look upset.

Emily: Yeah, it's -- it's Nikolas and Zander.

Skye: Oh. Yeah, I -- I heard that Zander was wanted for shooting a cop. Have you -- have you heard from him?

Emily: Oh, Zander came to me for help and everything went wrong, and now he's on the run.

Skye: And you're hoping that he'll get away?

Emily: Oh, God, if you can understand, Skye, why can't Nikolas?

Skye: Well, Zander is the desperate fugitive, not to mention your ex-husband. I can understand why Nikolas isn't exactly brimming with goodwill.

Emily: Yeah, he doesn't want me to help Zander.

Skye: Can you blame him?

Emily: I know better than anyone, Skye, that Zander is spiraling out, but in all the time that I have known him, I'm the only one that's ever been able to make him recognize how self-destructive he can be, and sometimes I help him stop.

Skye: That's called enabling.

Emily: I know, maybe, but I can't turn my back on Zander, Skye.

Nikolas: Don't tell Skye. Tell me.

Tracy: You must be new in town. My name is Tracy Quartermaine. The Quartermaines are very prominent in Port Charles.

Pit boss: With all due respect, ma'am, that doesn't entitle you to a line of credit.

Tracy: Why don't you just give me the marker I requested and then move along?

Skye: The house doesn't extend credit without collateral and you don't have any.

Tracy: I know you're not a real Quartermaine, but does that mean you don't accept Quartermaine money? Doesn't that seem like bad business to you?

Edward: How would you know? The only business you ever run is the mob that you inherited from your husband in the city.

Tracy: Don't start, daddy.

Edward: Come on, Tracy, what do you know about making money? Lila just extended you a line of credit, and I have yet to see any improvement at all.

Tracy: Well, that's because I'm focusing my attention on reviving E.L.Q.

Edward: You will never get your hands on my company, lady.

Skye: You know, I may not be a real Quartermaine, but Iíve certainly heard this argument before -- in fact, several times -- and, frankly, I'm bored. And you two happen to be loitering, so either put your chips on the table or get out.

Tracy: I would be happy to put my chips on the table if you extend my line of credit. Say, 50,000?

Edward: Have you gone mad, Tracy?

Skye: Make it $100,000, but I will need some collateral in the meantime. 10,000 shares of E.L.Q. stock. Take it or leave it.

Sonny: Uh -- just call me if you need anything, ok?

Sam: Ok.

Jax: Feel free to go after him.

Sam: I would rather hear whatever it is that you wanted to say.

Jax: Oh, no, no. I've thought better of it.

Sam: I want you to know why Sonny and I were together.

Jax: No, that's really not necessary, Sam, ok, because we don't owe each other anything.

Sam: This isn't about owing anyone anything, and it's not about revenge, and I am not with him because you hate him.

Jax: Oh, good. Good, because that would be a waste of your time.

Sam: I didn't do this to hurt you, Jax.

Carly: Out of all the people in my life, you should know that I would do anything to keep my kids.

Jason: Do you have any idea how wrong this is; that you and Sonny are using the kids to fight each other?

Carly: I don't want to turn this into a fight, but Sonny won't even let me into the house, Jase.

Jason: Stealing them, Carly, is not the way to handle the problem.

Carly: I am their mother and I love Michael and Morgan.

Jason: That's not the point.

Carly: Yes, it is the point. It's the point of everything of my whole life and you know that. Jase, why aren't you fighting for me? When Michael was born and I was a mess, you were the one that helped me hold on to him. You -- you said you were his father; you fought the Quartermaines for years. You wouldn't let anything or anyone get between me and Michael.

Jason: Yeah, but Sonny loves those kids. He is their father.

Carly: Oh, so you think that he's a better parent than I am?

Jason: No, I think that you and Sonny need to do a better job than you're doing right now.

Carly: So tell me what I'm supposed to do. I was supposed to wait for Sonny to cool off? Am I supposed to get permission from him to hug my own children?

Jason: Carly, how's he supposed to cool off? You sent the man that wrecked your marriage over to the penthouse to take away his kids!

Carly: Ok, well --

Jason: How far do you want to push Sonny?

Carly: You tell me what other choice did I have? He won't let me near my kids, and you know I am not going to let anyone keep me away from them!

Lorenzo: Marriages end, Courtney. Carly's life with Sonny is over. She's not going to give up her kids; she shouldn't have to.

Courtney: Look, Carly may be too upset to think straight, but I'm not. Michael and Morgan are staying with me until Carly and Sonny can arrange something else.

Lorenzo: Your brother locked his wife out of her own home. He cut her off from the kids. Let's not make this any more complicated than it already is.

Michael: Go away! Go away!

Courtney: Michael -- Michael --

Michael: Leave Aunt Courtney alone! Leave my brother alone!

Lorenzo: Hey, it's ok, it's ok, Michael. I know things are confusing right now, but your mom sent me.

Michael: Why?

Lorenzo: Because she loves you very much and she misses you even more. I came to take you and Morgan to see her.

Michael: What if you're lying?

Lorenzo: I'm not, ok? I'll prove it. Your mom calls you Mr. Man, right? She told me to tell Mr. Man that she loves him, and she wants to see him.

Jax: You know, I'm glad that you didn't turn to Sonny to get back at me, because I'd have to be responsible for the damages he could cause.

Sam: I know what I'm doing.

Jax: Are you sure? Now, you've seen what Sonny's world does to people.

Sam: I'll survive, Jax. I always do.

Jax: Right, of course. You know, do whatever you want, damn the consequences. This isn't some backward attempt to try to get you away from Sonny, ok? We're over, we already talked about that.

Sam: You really are worried about me, aren't you?

Jax: Yes, I am. You're a smart, capable woman, Sam, but Sonny's world destroys people. It'll destroy you, and that'd be a big waste.

Tracy: I'm not giving up one share of E.L.Q. stock.

Skye: Well, I think I'm being quite generous, given the fact that the stock is practically worthless. But it is only collateral, unless you're afraid of losing?

Tracy: No, you are the loser. You are unwanted -- by Jax, by the Quartermaines, and --

Skye: Oh, Tracy, my, so hostile. Well, I guess some people just can't handle the pressure of high-stakes gambling. You know what I'm going to do? I'm going to do you the favor of cutting you off, but please, stay here and socialize -- that is if you can find anyone who actually wants to spend time with you.

Edward: Hmm. That's very well played.

Tracy: Don't be ridiculous.

Edward: She's being a lot kinder to you than you deserve, and since we all know, Tracy, that you will never get the helm of E.L.Q., the company will turn around before long. You know, Skye could've robbed you blind if she had accepted your stock.

Tracy: I never offered it to her.

Edward: But she asked for it. You know, she's a savvy little thing, almost as treacherous as you are, Tracy. If you aren't careful, she's libel to beat you at your own game.

Skye: Why Edward, that was almost a compliment, and Iím almost touched.

Edward: Skye? I just happened to like you playing Tracy that way.

Skye: Um -- Edward, Tracyís out of earshot. You can stop complimenting me to try to annoy her.

Edward: Don't be so sure that you can understand my motives. You've given me a great deal to think about.

Alan: I'm very proud of you.

Skye: Oh. You know, you shouldn't feel obligated to say something supportive every time you see me.

Alan: I'm not saying that because I had to; I'm saying it because I wanted to. Tracy is vicious and you stood up to her. Luke took off on opening night and you stayed. The only reason this place is a success is because of you, Skye.

[Zander groans]

Zander: Maxie, I just -- I need to get out of the hospital, ok?

Maxie: No, Zander, you're bleeding. You really need to see a doctor right now!

Zander: No, Maxie, look, I can't let you get any more involved than you already are!

Maxie: Why were you in Detective Beck's room? Were you trying to hurt him?

Zander: I didn't shoot him the other night, Maxie, I promise --

Maxie: Well, why'd you go after him? They said he was being attacked.

Zander: I needed him to admit that he never saw me pull the trigger, ok? I didn't hurt him, though, not purposely.

Maxie: Ok, well, Ricís in the hospital right now and he wants to see you in jail.

Zander: That's nothing new.

Maxie: Yeah, well, the cops are probably downstairs waiting for us!

Zander: Maxie, look, they cannot find me, ok?

Maxie: We're stuck in an elevator. How are you going to stop them?

Carly: What --

Jason: Just -- Carly --

Jason: Ok. Do not let them see you.

Carly: Jason, I want to hold my children.

Jason: Ok, listen to me. You take a couple of minutes, you let Michael know how much you love him, and I'm taking the boys back to the penthouse.

Carly: Are you crazy? They just got here.

Jason: What are -- you're the one who's crazy. You took them out of their bed in the middle of the night. You make this ok for Michael and Morgan. I'm taking them back.

Carly: I cannot believe you would do this to me.

Jason: No, you're doing this. I'm trying to minimize the damage.

Edward: Justus, you need to know that E.L.Q. is in crisis.

Justus: I've already told you -- Iím not interested.

Edward: Please, please, now, just hear me out, all right? Now, I know that we have had our differences, but Iím very proud of you, young man, and I need your help. I need somebody with purpose and integrity and I don't want you to turn me down.

Tracy: Don't just stand there. Go over and talk to your grandfather before he gives E.L.Q. to that interloper.

Ned: Don't you mean "nephew"?

Tracy: Oh, Ned, Iím not joking. I came back to provide for both my sons. Daddy isn't going to be around forever. I have endured years of his manipulation and his conniving. I'm not going to do it and watch him give E.L.Q. to somebody less deserving than me.

Emily: You'd be relieved if Zander was dead.

Nikolas: No. No, not really. I was -- just angry. I didn't mean what I said.

Emily: Well, don't you see, Nikolas? If I can just get through to Zander --

Nikolas: No, I don't see, and no one can get through to him.

Emily: Well, I have before.

Nikolas: Yeah, maybe back in high school, but that was years ago. Look, I -- I get that you have a blind spot for the guy, but you can't -- you can't fix him, and if you keep trying you will get hurt.

Emily: Well, that's my chance to take.

Nikolas: How can -- Em, we're going to be married. That means that our lives belong to each other. So how can you stand here and say that you're willing to risk your life for Zander? And how am I supposed to be ok with that?

Lucky: What do you got?

Officer: The exits are covered, but so far no sign of Zander Smith.

Lucky: Ok. I want somebody to do a room-by-room search. I want somebody upstairs checking the roof. I want the morgue. I want --

Officer: What is it?

Lucky: I wonder if -- he's in the elevator.

Officer: What?

Lucky: The second car's been below us the whole time. I want it back up here right now. Listen --

Officer: Good eye.

Lucky: I want you to go bypass the controls and get that thing up here right now. Go!

[Zander groans]

Maxie: I -- I really don't want to seem like a brat, but I -- I helped you, and now Iím really confused.

Zander: Listen, Maxie, you've been great, ok, better than I deserve, but I cannot let you get into any more trouble for me.

Maxie: Well, I cannot let you get caught. I -- the last thing that I want to do is see you go to jail right now.

Ric: So Zander attacked you with a scalpel?

Brian: Yeah, he seemed pretty desperate.

Ric: I'm not surprised. I just don't understand why he came back to the hospital in the first place.

Brian: Well, he wanted me to know that he was innocent. He also claims that you have motive to frame him.

Ric: You I.D.'d Zander as the shooter.

Brian: I don't know, you seemed pretty anxious to have me I.D. him.

Ric: You implicated him all by yourself. Your statement says that he was there at the scene. He was armed --

Brian: He was.

Ric: You said that Zander shot you. I mean, what possible reason could you have for implicating another man? Unless you're protecting the real shooter.

Carly: Michael is waiting for me. There is nothing wrong with me wanting to be with my children.

Jason: Ok, Sonny is angry. How far do you want to push him? Do you want him to decide that you're dangerous to your kids?

Carly: I would never hurt them, you know that!

Jason: I know that. I do know that, but using Michael and Morgan to fight Sonny is going to hurt him -- that's what I'm trying to stop. You say you trust me? Trust me now. Just give me a chance to fix it for Michael and Morgan and for you.

Sonny: Michael, come here. Come over here.

Carly: No, Michael. You come to me.

Justus: Careful grandfather, you're starting to seem human.

Edward: I'm just telling you that Iíve reached an age where my -- my priorities are changing. Now, my business is all-important to me, but I have to be sure that my family's provided for.

Justus: The Quartermaines are indestructible. They could survive a nuclear fallout.

Edward: That doesn't mean that I can't re-evaluate. Now, look, I have two little great-granddaughters and I hardly know them. And if I had spent less time at business, I would've had more time to get to know little Kristina and Brooke Lynn.

Justus: You haven't seen those little girls since their mothers took them away.

Edward: Well, it's not too late to make up for lost time!

Justus: Ok. Maybe it's true.

Edward: What?

Justus: Maybe you've had an epiphany and realized how much time you've wasted manipulating the people you claim to love. But I doubt it.

Edward: Look at --

Justus: It's what you're doing right now.

Edward: Listen to me, young man. If it weren't for me, you would be in prison for killing Damian Smith. I was the one who convinced you not to confess.

Justus: And I've regretted not coming forward every day since.

Edward: Why?

Justus: You wouldn't understand. The idea of doing the right thing is something completely foreign to you.

Edward: What, do you mean it's all right for me to just let you throw your life away?

Justus: You appeal to the worst part in all of us.

Edward: Oh, come on.

Justus: That's what's crippling this family. I won't let you have that power over me ever again.

Edward: The --

Jax: Scotch on the rocks?

Skye: Well. Feeling a little reckless?

[Skye chuckles]

Jax: Well, as a matter of fact, I am. And your charming company is exactly what I need.

Maxie: We're moving.

Zander: The cops are overriding the system to get the elevator moving. They know we're in here.

Maxie: What do we do now?

Officer: You think he realizes we got him?

Lucky: Zander knows he's trapped. He's probably armed, so there's no telling what he's going to do.

Maxie: Lucky, what are you doing?

Lucky: Maxie -- where's Zander Smith?

Maxie: I don't know.

Carly: Sweetheart, come to me.

Sonny: Michael, I want you at my shoulder here.

Michael: I don't understand.

Jason: It's ok, Michael, we're going to go home.

Michael: But I didn't even get to be with mommy.

[Carly sighs]

Carly: I'm so sorry, Mr. Man.

Michael: Will you come and tuck me in?

Sonny: Michael -- Michael, go with Jason. I'll explain to you later. Go.

Carly: Come here, give me -- give me a big hug first. Oh, my goodness.

Michael: I love you, mommy.

Carly: Oh, I love you, too.

Lorenzo: Here's your other son.

Carly: Oh, come here. Come here. Hi.

[Morgan cries]

Carly: Oh, don't cry. Hi. It's ok.

[Morgan fusses]

Carly: It's ok. It's ok.

Jason: Ok.

[Morgan cries]

Jason: Ok.

Carly: Oh, there, there, there, there, there.

Jason: Oh, it's ok, buddy. I got him. It's ok. Come on, Michael, let's go. I'll see you later.

Carly: Are you happy now? You turned Jason against me. You make him take my baby out of my arms?

Sonny: Jason's doing what's right, Carly.

Carly: You can't keep me from my family, Sonny.

Sonny: I can if it keeps them safe. What is he doing with my kids, anyway?

Carly: I sent Lorenzo to the penthouse to bring me the kids because you won't let me in there!

Sonny: You what? You sent him to the penthouse? You come near my kids again, I will kill you.

Carly: That is your answer to everything, Sonny, isn't it? It is guns and violence. You don't like anything; you're just going to eliminate it.

Sonny: You kidnapped my kids?

Carly: No, Sonny, that would be you -- locking them up in that fortress that you call a home and keeping them away from their mother.

Lorenzo: Carly, let's go.

Carly: If you think you can take away my kids and turn my friends against me, you are wrong. I will not let you. You are in for the fight of your life.

Courtney: Sonny --

Sonny: You let Alcazar take my kids?

Courtney: Jason was gone. Alcazar got rid of your guards --

Sonny: You handed my sons over to a kidnapper?

Courtney: Sonny, Michael was upset. Alcazar told him that Carly wanted to see him. I didn't want to scare the boys, so I just came with him.

Sonny: I make the decisions for my sons. If you ever want to see them again, don't ever do this.

Carly: I never should have let Jason keep me away from Michael when I first saw him in the lobby.

Lorenzo: No, it was better that you didn't cause a scene.

Carly: I lost my chance to be near my babies, Lorenzo.

Lorenzo: But you got to see them and hold them. Soon they'll be with you full-time.

Carly: Michael and Morgan need me now, and I should've fought Sonny. I shouldn't have let him take my children without resisting him more.

Lorenzo: Look, Michaelís already confused. It would've devastated him to witness a fight between you and Sonny. You're right to put him first.

Carly: That was our only chance. Lorenzo, Sonny is going to have the boys guarded day and night, and then he's going to do everything he can to keep me out of their lives.

Lorenzo: Listen, you are their mother. No court is going to give Sonny Corinthos full-time custody over two young children.

Carly: So what do you think, that -- that the law is going to stop Sonny? He's going to pay off a judge, and then he's going to send the kids away somewhere where I will never be able to find them.

Lorenzo: Look, I got to Michael and Morgan tonight; I can do it again if necessary. Sonny's not as powerful as he likes to think, and I'm highly motivated because I love you, Carly. I'm going to get your children back.

[Knock on door]

Carly: Hey.

Courtney: I need to talk to you, but not in front of him.

Lorenzo: I'll leave. If you need anything --

Carly: Thank you. Thank you so much for bringing Michael and Morgan to the hotel. I know it was --

Courtney: You're just as bad as Sonny, Carly. You are both out of control. I mean, God, you're hurting your own children. Carly, it has to stop.

Sonny: Alcazar's a monster. Carly let him come to my penthouse to take my sons.

Jason: I know --

Sonny: You tell me what Iím supposed to do with that.

Jason: I'm not saying that it's right. It's wrong. You wouldn't let her in. You knew she was going to do something desperate.

Sonny: She's a slut! She's sleeping with the man who hurt my family --

Jason: Hey, hey --

Sonny: This family, our family!

Jason: Sonny, Michaelís upstairs. You don't want him to hear you talk about his mother that way.

Sonny: Well, maybe he should hear the truth, Jason, what his mother really is -- a woman who would let -- a woman who would let the man who hurt this family be with her children alone; a woman who lied to her best friend so he couldn't protect her kids. She let Courtney face Alcazar alone. This is the slime ball that made you and Courtney lose your baby. So what are we talking about here?

Jason: Sonny, Sonny -- whatever happened, you know -- you know Carly doesn't want to hurt Michael and Morgan --

Sonny: Don't compare me to her!

Jason: We -- this doesn't have to be a war --

Sonny: That's what -- that's what it is, Jason! You got to figure out which side you're on! You're on Carlyís side; you're on my side!

Lorenzo: Excuse me. Samantha McCall, isn't it? Lorenzo Alcazar. I understand you're seeing Sonny Corinthos.

Sam: All I understand, you stalked his wife and now you're sleeping with her.

Lorenzo: Is that what he told you? I doubt Sonny would've turned to you if I hadn't come into the picture.

Sam: My relationship with Sonny is none of your business.

Lorenzo: All right, then let's get down to it. Sonny's keeping Carly away from her children. They need their mother.

Sam: That's debatable, huh?

Lorenzo: I'd suggest you encourage Sonny to give up Michael and Morgan peacefully and move on with his life -- maybe with you.

Sam: Well, what makes you think that Sonny would listen to me?

Alan: Well, you probably don't want advice from your dad, but I agree with Nikolas.

Emily: Something told me you would.

Alan: Zander's more dangerous than he's ever been.

Emily: I know, dad, but it doesn't matter. I can't turn my back on Zander.

Alan: But if you insist on helping him, you're the one who's going to get hurt, and that's what Nikolas is trying to prevent.

Ned: Tear your eyes away from Jax and focus, mother. Now, what makes you think that grandfather wants to turn the company over to Justus?

Tracy: He wants us all at each other's throats vying for power. It is sport to daddy to keep us all on the hook. He's even sucking up to Skye. He wants us all dancing on his strings.

Ned: Do you have a plan?

Tracy: Of course -- eliminate the competition.

Jax: Would you cash me in?

Skye: Hmm.

Jax: Let's get out of here.

Skye: Oh -- uh -- I can't leave until the tables are closed.

Jax: Sure, you can, Skye. You used to be spontaneous.

Skye: Well, I wasn't aware I changed.

Jax: You haven't, you just work too hard. How about I spoil you? Why don't the two of us go to Aspen for the weekend and cuddle up in front of a fire together?

Skye: Um -- what?

Jax: Or we could go to Paris. You know, it's only a five-hour flight. I know this great little bed-and-breakfast that's right near Provence.

Skye: Yeah, but, Jax, don't -- don't do this, ok?

Jax: Yeah, you're right. You're right. Enough talking.

Skye: You heartless bastard.

Lucky: Maxie, this is serious. One more time, do you know where Zander is?

Maxie: No, I don't, I swear. The elevator just stopped when I was on my way down to the lobby.

Lucky: Ok, listen, I want to believe you, but this is the second time that I found you while searching for him.

Maxie: Why would I lie? I barely even know Zander. There's no way that I would protect him. Look, this -- being in this elevator really freaked me out. I -- I need some air or something.

Lucky: Zander shot a cop, Maxie. That's a big deal. Do you understand me? Listen to me, sometimes he can play helpless, and that's how he got Emily to bail him out of tough times. If he has tried to do that with you --

Maxie: Look, my dad is a cop, ok, and if Zander was willing to shoot a cop, then he could've shot my dad, and there's no way that I would forgive that. I want you to catch him.

Lucky: Ok. You know what? He must've gotten out another way. Let's go.

Nikolas' voice: I dare you -- call me "prince" again.

Emily: "Prince." "Prince." "Prince, prince, prince, prince."

Nikolas: Come on!

[Emily squeals]

Emily: You're the one person I truly love with all of my heart, and we've got years and years and years of snowball fights ahead of us. And through it all, I promise I'll never take you for granted again.

Nikolas: You better not.

Nikolas: This ring represents everything you mean to me, the trust I have in you, the faith that you've given me for our future. As long as we're together, we can get through anything.

Emily: I'll wear it for the rest of my life.

Nikolas: Hi.

Emily: Hey. You sound surprised.

Nikolas: Yeah. I thought you -- I thought you might stay at your -- your parents' tonight.

Emily: Nikolas, my home is with you.

Nikolas: You know I love you, right? That I just -- I want you to be --

Skye: You know I have been a really good friend to you since you came back into town.

Jax: I know, I know, Skye. I was just -- I was trying to be nice.

Skye: By using me? What, Sam sleeps with Sonny and you're hurting, so your solution is to sleep with me on the rebound? What, poor, pathetic Skye, well, she'll be grateful for any time that she gets to spend with you, is that it?

Jax: No, no, no. It's not that, no.

Skye: God, I am your -- I'm your ex-wife, Jax -- maybe not your favorite, but, my God, you broke my heart and still I reached out to you because I care.

Jax: I -- I guess I didn't think this through.

Skye: Yeah, well, that's obvious. You know, I know we couldn't make a marriage work, but do you really think so little of me that you could actually sleep with me on the rebound from Sam and I wouldn't care or notice? I -- I do have some pride, you know, maybe even an iota of self-respect!

Jax: Skye, I'm sorry. I don't --

Skye: No, you know what? Just -- just go, ok?

Waiter: Vodka martini?

Skye: What? I didn't order that.

Waiter: My mistake.

Skye: Wait, you know what? It's fine. Just leave it, ok?

Sam: My personal life is off-limits to strangers, but I will tell you one thing -- whatever Sonny and I have going on doesn't affect the rest of our lives. I couldn't tell him what to do with those kids if I wanted to.

Lorenzo: Yeah, maybe you're right. Corinthos has no respect for women. Why should he listen to you?

Sam: Why don't you tell me why you're really here?

Lorenzo: I already have -- Sonny's keeping Carly away from those children.

Sam: Carly. That's what this is about -- you want to make sure Sonny's moved on?

Lorenzo: Aside from how it affects those children, I don't give a damn what Corinthos does.

Sam: Sure, you do. You are afraid that he still loves her and he's going to decide that he wants her back. Well, you know what? That's possible. When I first met Sonny, he was flipping because he thought she betrayed him. He took her back then; he'll probably do it again.

Lorenzo: Carly doesn't want Sonny anymore.

Sam: You hope. After all, you love her. Sonny and I, we're just acquaintances, and I know the chances are pretty good he'll reconcile with his wife, and I can live with that. Can you?

Carly: I won't apologize for wanting to see my kids.

Courtney: Michael and Morgan need their mom and dad, Carly.

Carly: Yeah. So why don't you tell that to Sonny? He is the one who's cut me out of their lives.

Courtney: Ok, Sonny's wrong. But is sending Alcazar to the penthouse any solution?

Carly: It's the only solution.

Courtney: Oh, come on. Carly, I have always protected your children, and I did not deserve to be put in that position. But once Alcazar had told Michael that you'd sent him, what could I say? I mean, how could I explain it to him? Michael's already been through so much.

Carly: Right, exactly, and I needed to talk to Michael. I needed to reassure him. And sending Lorenzo -- it -- I didn't want to ask you, ok? I did not want to ask you to do it because then you would've had to betray Sonny. Sending Lorenzo was the only way you were left blameless.

Courtney: So am I supposed to thank you for sending Lorenzo?

Carly: I did what I needed to do. This is Sonny's fault because he cut me out of their lives. I am not going to apologize for it, and I am sure as hell not going to back down.

Sonny: What do you mean, you'll protect my children? Does that mean you're going to protect them from me?

Jason: No.

Sonny: Then protect them from Carly.

Jason: Look, I know -- I know that you're upset. No matter what, she needs to be involved in their lives, so you guys need to reach some kind of compromise.

Sonny: No! We both know Carly has proven time and time again she cannot be trusted.

Jason: Sonny, would you just listen to me?

Sonny: It's over! She took sides; she's with Alcazar. I have to accept that! That makes her my -- that makes her my enemy. If she gets anywhere near my sons again, I will treat her like one.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Tracy: Fallen off the wagon, have we?

Helena: If I die, you'll never find the treasure.

Zander: One last favor -- I won't ask anything else of you, I promise.

Cameron: Why are you stealing drugs?

Carly: I just want to see my children. You need to deal with this.
