Jax: Sam, Sam, Sam, don't open the door.
Sam: Jax, there is a fire in this hotel. We have to get out of here.
Jax: I know, I know, but we're not going anywhere.
Courtney: Ok. Hurry. It's not going to hold for long.
Louise: I -- I can't.
Mickey: I wanted to see the fire, but then I got lost.
Jason: That's ok, buddy. Come on. No, no, come on, it's all right. Ok, put your arms around me. All right. Ok? Just hold on. Just hold on.
Faith: You look awful.
Luke: Thanks. We don't have time for sweet talk.
Skye: Luke, no, she's right, you took in a lot of smoke. You should -- you should rest before you pass out again.
Luke: No, I got a better idea.
Alexis: I never wanted Sonny to know the truth until right this very minute. Carly, Iím so sorry.
Alexis: Sonny is Kristinaís father.
Carly: You lying bitch.
Emily: It's hard to believe the treasure ever seemed important.
Nikolas: Yeah. I'd trade every penny of that $25 million to get you out of here safe.
Emily: We'll both be safe as soon as the helicopters can land.
Emily: No one else is going to die.
Nikolas: Thinking about Zander?
Emily: I just -- I can't believe he's gone.
Nikolas: I'm sorry.
Emily: Nikolas, you had no way of knowing about that fire, ok? You can't blame yourself.
Edward: Lucky, this is unacceptable. These people need to be evacuated. Now, you get on that damn radio of yours and you do something about it!
Justus: There are people in more danger than we are.
Tracy: You stop badgering daddy. We need to pull together as a family. Oh, I forgot -- that doesn't include you.
Justus: No, it doesn't.
Helena: May I have a moment alone with my grandson, please?
Nikolas: We've already done this.
Emily: You know, it's ok. I want to check on grandfather. He's taking this so hard. Ok, see you.
Helena: Nikolas, it's foolish to wait for the helicopter.
Helena: You need to try the stairs.
Nikolas: The explosion blew out the 10th-floor stairwell. You heard what Lucky said.
Helena: Nikolas, you are strong and resourceful. Now, if the 10th floor is impassable, you can come back up, but you must try. If you wait here, you may not survive.
Courtney: All right, now just hold on to me, don't look at the fire.
Louise: Oh -- oh --
Courtney: Ok, here we go. Here we go, you're ok.
Louise: Can you take care --
Courtney: Yeah, I'll take her. Ok. You got it? Come on, we can go. Come on. Come on. We need to get out of here. Come on. Ok. Damn it, this isn't working.
Louise: Take Skippy first.
Courtney: No, I'm going to -- I'm going to tie him to the landing, ok? I'm just going to tie him to the landing. As soon as I get you to safety, I will come back and get him.
Louise: Oh, please, I -- I can't leave Skippy alone!
Courtney: No, I promise I'll come back and get him.
Louise: Oh --
Louise: Oh, Skippy, I love you! Oh --
Courtney: All right, we need to go. Come on, we got to go! Hold on to me.
Louise: I can't move.
Courtney: Yes, hold on to me. Let's go. Give me your hand. Come on. Ok, come on, watch your hands, watch your hands.
Louise: I don't want to fall.
Courtney: Hold on to me. I know, hold on to me, hold on to me.
Jason: It's ok, come on. Come here. Now, listen to me, we need to keep moving.
Molly: I want my mom and dad.
Brian: We'll find them, Molly. We'll get you guys to them as soon as we can.
Jason: It's only going to be a little further. We got six more floors, ok? Come on. Cover your mouth.
Faith: What's wrong with the stairs?
Luke: They might be blocked on the lower floors.
Faith: What and you know that because of your vast experience as a borrower?
Luke: Look, if you want to go down there, you go ahead. I don't know what you're going to find. I'm going this way.
Faith: Look, I like Luke, but not enough to die. I'm going.
Luke: What about you? You trust my instincts?
Skye: You wouldn't leave me in that conference room. I'm not about to leave you now. Besides, I always think it's a good idea to do the opposite of whatever Faith does.
Faith: Suit yourselves.
Sam: Jax, Iím -- I'm ready to make a run for it. I've got a wet towel to put over my face and --
Jax: No, no, no --
Sam: I just kind of feel like it's now or never, you know?
Jax: I think we should stay here.
Sam: Stay and wait to be rescued? The fire is only going to get worse. What if nobody comes?
Jax: Do you smell smoke?
Sam: But --
Jax: That's because we're on the upper floor, we're in an isolated corner, and the penthouse, it has its own ventilation system, ok, and there's reinforced doors. So this is probably the safest spot in the building.
Sam: Ok. We'll wait.
Jax: Good. Good choice.
Sam: Thank you for saving me.
Jax: You're welcome.
Sam: Jax, you didn't happen to see anything else in the hallway, did you?
Jax: You mean like the laundry cart which was, I'm assuming, full of treasure? If you're even dreaming about going after that--
Sam: No, I'm not, no. God, no, I am enjoying breathing, and that's how it's going to stay.
Sam: I -- I really don't know why you bothered to rescue me.
Sonny: Sam? Hey.
Faith: Looks like your little cupcake is gone.
Sonny: What are you doing here?
Faith: Following you. I have a proposition I think you'll find intriguing.
Carly: We are trapped in this elevator and we are probably going to die here, and you are using the last few minutes to hurt me with your vicious lies about Sonny being Kristinaís father? What the hell --
Alexis: Carly, please, please! Oh, please don't move unless you want the last cable to break.
Carly: I knew that you were bitter, but this is pathetic.
Alexis: I wanted to tell you the truth.
Carly: I saw the D.N.A. test. Ned is Kristinaís father.
Alexis: Ned changed the D.N.A. test because he was afraid of what would happen to Kristina. So was I. I was afraid because people die around Sonny. My -- my sister died because of Sonny, and I didn't want anything to happen to my daughter!
Carly: No, you --
Alexis: I was afraid that he would take her away!
Carly: No, you weren't! You just thought it was easier to lie through your damn teeth!
Alexis: How can you judge me when he's doing everything in his power right now to take your children away from you just because he's angry? How can you sit there and say that you don't know how I feel?
Carly: Ok, Alexis, while you're dumping this confessional on me, why don't you just be honest with yourself for a minute? You didn't want to share Kristina with anyone, and that is why you jumped through hoops to get rid of Ned as soon as he helped you lie to Sonny.
Alexis: I wanted to protect my daughter from a violent man and now he may be the only parent that she has, and neither of them are going to know it. Oh, my God. Oh, my God, what have I done? What have I done?
Maxie: Hey. I'm his daughter. The doctor said I could sit with him. How's he doing?
Nurse: Your father's in serious but stable condition. The doctor is hopeful that he'll regain consciousness soon.
Maxie: Thanks. Dad, it's me, Maxie. I'm so sorry. I know you went to that basement looking for Zander, and I'm the one who hid him there. If I would've told you where he was, none of this would've ever happened. You wouldn't be hurt. Zander would -- would still be alive. I'm so sorry. I did this all wrong. I love you so much. Please don't die on me, too.
Emily: Hey, hey, take these to your husband, all right? You're going to be ok, all right?
Nikolas: Helena thinks I should try and go down the stairwell.
Emily: What do you think?
Nikolas: I think -- I think it's worth a try. I mean, it doesn't look like the helicopters are going to be making rescues anytime soon.
Emily: Yeah, people are starting to realize it, too.
Nikolas: I know. They're getting scared. Look, if there's an accessible route down the stairs, then -- then we can evacuate.
Emily: All right, well, let's try. It's better than sitting here waiting.
Nikolas: Ok, come on.
Tracy: Why don't you sit down and rest, daddy? Let others do the worrying.
Edward: Spare me the phony concern.
Tracy: Jeez, daddy, we're trapped in a burning building. We may not make it out alive. What possible reason would I have to be phony? I love you. Why do you let everybody in but me?
Edward: Because you frighten me, Tracy. You always have. When I look at you, I see the worst of myself.
Tracy: Well, I've succeeded. All I ever wanted was to be just like you.
Jason: All right, wait here, ok? Hang on. Wait there.
Brian: We need to go back.
Jason: No, no, no, we can't. We got to stay ahead of the fire.
Brian: But I don't know if the kids can still breathe.
Jason: Beck, we have to. It's the only way we're going to get them to safety.
Faith: We'll both get out of this. Surviving is what we do best, Sonny.
Sonny: What's your point?
Faith: Well, it's been a tough year, hasn't it? Business has suffered while you've been preoccupied with your personal situation, and now that you've gotten your distractions out of the way, you're ready to get back to business, and you could use a partner to help you rebuild.
Sonny: You know, you're wasting time we have not got.
Sonny: I don't trust you. I never will. What's your point here?
Faith: You know, I can see why Carly left you for Alcazar. He's got more vision, probably more guts, too.
Sonny: Take your deal with him, then.
Faith: You know, didn't I hear that Carly was a guest at this hotel? That means that she and her lover could be crispy critters real soon. Is that what you were counting on? Or maybe deep down inside, you're still worrying about little Carly.
Sonny: Do you understand we could die? You're wasting time!
Alexis: I don't know if it's ironic symmetry or just a cosmic joke that I should be spending what could be the last moments of my life with you.
Carly: Would you just quit yapping?
Alexis: I don't think confronting my mortality should be considered yapping.
Carly: Fine. You sit and confront your mortality, but my boys are not growing up without their mother.
Alexis: Oh God, Carly!
Alexis: You're going to get us killed.
Carly: Yeah, as opposed to what, sitting here and waiting to die? You know, I am not going to wait until that last cable snaps and we fall. You know, it may be your idea of a workable solution, but it's certainly not mine.
Alexis: Oh, God.
Alexis: What do you see?
Carly: It seems like we dropped some floors, so I think maybe if we can pry open the doors, we'll be on a floor instead of a cement wall.
Alexis: Oh. Carly, Iím asking nicely this time, please, don't jump anymore. If that last cable breaks, we're going to die.
Carly: Get up off your butt and help me pry open these doors.
Courtney: We need help here!
Louise: How can I thank you?
Courtney: It's all right, it's all right.
Louise: You wanted to find your husband, and you stopped to help a perfect stranger! You're an angel of mercy. You really, really are!
Courtney: I'm going to go back and Iím going to get your dog.
Louise: Be careful!
Courtney: I will. Could you do me a favor?
Louise: Yes, anything.
Courtney: Ok, my husband's name is Jason Morgan. Ok, if he's been evacuated, will you tell him that Courtney is looking for him and that she loves him?
Jason: Get them up here.
Brian: Gotcha. Come on. All right, buddy.
Jason: Hang out right there, ok?
Brian: Flying high. Coming in for a landing. Ok, there you go.
Jason: Hang on. Hang on.
Carly: Ok. I'm down here. It's your turn. Come on.
Alexis: Oh boy.
Carly: Come on, Alexis, you have always thought you were better than me. Now's your chance to prove it.
Alexis: Never said I was better than you, just smarter and classier. You're clearly a better athlete, and you have much better survival instincts.
Alexis: Kind of like a cockroach.
Carly: Ok, would you just stop talking? Do this, come on.
Alexis: Stop pressuring me. What if I fall?
Carly: You're not going to fall.
Carly: Ok, ok. Come on, Alexis. Come on, it's ok. You just do this. Do it for Kristina. Come on.
Alexis: Oh. Ok, I guess we're going to live.
Carly: Kind of makes you rethink that whole spilling-your-guts thing, huh?
Alexis: Carly, you can't tell Sonny. He'll take her from me.
Carly: Don't worry about that yet. We're a long way from getting out of here alive.
Luke: This is what Iím looking for.
Skye: What, the security room?
Luke: Yeah, with monitors showing what's going on all over the hotel. See there? That's the north stairwell where Faith is. Looks like it's blocked at the 10th floor. She's going to run into a dead end. Here. The west stairwell is open.
Skye: Well, let's take the west stairwell! What?
Luke: Check this out. Look. Look here.
Skye: What, a laundry cart?
Luke: Yeah. Now, who would leave that in the middle of a hallway during a fire?
Sam: I know how you must have felt when you saw me with Sonny. I --
Jax: I don't think you do.
Sam: Why didn't you just leave me in the hallway?
Jax: I don't hate you, Sam; I just hate your choices. I'm going to get us some dinner, ok?
Sam: Great. I'm starving. Jax -- when do you think we're going to get rescued?
Jax: Well, shouldn't be too long now.
Nikolas: Hey. Emily and I are going to take the stairwell. Maybe we can get down to the lobby.
Lucky: Ok. You know what; just don't make a big deal about it. I just -- I don't want the rest of these people starting to panic and making a run for the stairs.
Nikolas: Ok. We're running out of time, aren't we?
Lucky: The fire's spreading. We need to get these people out of here as soon as we can.
Nikolas: Look, why don't you come with us?
Lucky: No, I canít. I need to stay here and help out.
Nikolas: Ok. All right, well, you stay safe, all right?
Lucky: Hey, you, too, big brother.
Nikolas: All right. Ok.
Lucky: Go ahead.
Monica: It is too dangerous.
Emily: The stairwells could be the best way out. We're going to try, mom.
Monica: Emily, no, no! Oh, my God, please will you be careful?
Emily: Yes, I promise.
Edward: Emily, are you all right, honey?
Emily: I'm fine, I'm fine. Nikolas -- Nikolas, are you hurt?
Monica: It's all right, it's all right.
Nikolas: It's not me.
Nikolas: It's not me. Emily --
Monica: Don't touch it! Emily, don't touch it! Don't touch it, sweetheart.
Man: You're going to have to leave this area.
Louise: Oh, well, I'm waiting for my dog, and finding a young man named Jason Morgan.
Man: You're just going to have to get going.
Louise: But --
Man: Have some respect. You're talking to Louise Ferris, one of the richest women in the country.
Louise: It's not important, Gerald. I'm -- Iím waiting to find a young named Jason Morgan and tell him that his wife is searching for him.
Courtney: Skippy, here, come here, boy. Come on, it's ok. You're ok. You're ok.
Courtney: It's ok, Skippy. Come on, boy. Let's get you downstairs. Oh, you're ok. Ok, you're ok, you're ok. Come on. Come on.
Woman: Molly! Mickey! Oh, my God!
Man: Thank God you're all right!
Woman: We can't thank you enough. The policemen wouldn't allow us to leave.
Jason: Your kids were very brave. They never panicked. Excuse me. Emily.
Emily: Jason, what are you doing here?
Jason: It's a long story. How bad is it?
Monica: I don't know yet. We're going to need something --
Justus: This is all I could find.
Monica: Oh, ok. I don't think that's going to be enough. This could be an arterial bleed. We're going to need more than this, but -- don't move, sweetheart. Ok.
Skye: Remind me again why we're doing this.
Luke: The treasure is probably still in that laundry cart.
Skye: Ok, yeah -- the treasure or our lives. You know, I'm coming down on the side of our lives here.
Luke: We're almost there.
Skye: Can we please just forget about the treasure and go --
Luke: Will you relax? We'll be out of here in a minute!
Skye: Yeah. Famous last words.
Luke: Look at that, look at that! King me. Whoo-hoo-hoo!
Cameron: I heard they brought your father in. How is he?
Maxie: He's still unconscious, but the doctors say that he's going to wake up soon.
Cameron: And Alexander? Where's he hiding now?
Maxie: Oh God, I don't know how to say this, but the fire at the hotel --
Maxie: I'm so sorry. Zander's dead.
Faith: You have no idea where you're going, do you?
Sonny: I'm trying to avoid the fire and find a way out, ok? You want to stay here, be my guest.
Faith: All right. Blind company is better than no company at all.
Sonny: Shut up and keep moving!
Faith: Yeah, I would like to find a little water, if that's possible.
Sonny: This one's hot. We got to keep moving.
Faith: Ok, ok.
Sonny: Let's go.
Faith: Ugh. Oh, I twisted my ankle.
Alexis: Carly, please, please promise me that you're not going to tell Sonny that he's Kristinaís father.
Carly: Look, I don't owe you a damn thing, Alexis, and I have no reason to keep your secrets.
Alexis: Then do it for Kristinaís sake.
Carly: Ok, listen, if you're lucky, I won't make it out of here alive and it won't matter either way. Just -- just go.
Alexis: Come on, we got to get out of here!
Carly: Wait. Is someone there?
Sonny: You need to stand up and you need to walk.
Faith: Thanks for the sympathy.
Faith: Ok. It's not that bad.
Sonny: Good, because I'm sure as hell not going to carry you.
Faith: Ooh, rushing off to find Carly? Can I ask you a question?
Faith: Why do you care? I thought loyalty was like a religion to you. She and Alcazar have been going out like buddies since you guys split.
Sonny: You know what? You want to burn to death, I don't give a damn. Just stay away from me.
Monica: Ok, this should slow the bleeding a while.
Nikolas: That's the worst, baby. It'll be ok.
Monica: Yeah, you're going to be just fine.
Emily: I'm not worried.
Jason: Lucky, Emily needs more medical supplies.
Lucky: I know, I notified the fire captain about Em's condition. He gave me a message to give to you about Courtney.
Jason: What -- what are you talking about? She's -- she's at the penthouse with Sonny's kids.
Lucky: No, no, she came here to the hotel looking for you. She rescued some woman downstairs, and then she went up to get her dog.
Lucky: Yeah. He said Courtney was supposed to be headed to the fourth floor.
Jason: I -- I got to go, I got to go.
Monica: It's ok. Emily's going to be fine.
Jason: Are you ok?
Emily: Yeah, yeah, I'll be ok.
Emily: Promise you will be, too.
Jason: Don't worry about me.
Emily: All right.
Monica: Just do what Monica tells you, ok?
Emily: Ok. I love you, Jason.
Monica: I love you, too.
Lucky: Morgan, 10th floor's impassible.
Jason: I'm going to find a way, all right?
Brian: Hey, hey -- we worked together to save those kids. Doesn't Courtney deserve the same chance?
Helena: Nikolas --
Helena: If those two can find a way down, so can you.
Nikolas: I'm not going to leave Emily here.
Monica: I have done everything I can. That wound is too deep, Nikolas. I need a suture kit or she could die.
Courtney: Here, sweetie. Here. Here, Skippy. Here, drink some water. Come on. Good boy. Good boy. Ok. Oh, God.
Lucky: Hey. Sonny.
Sonny: Listen, call downstairs. I need to know if Carlyís been evacuated.
Lucky: Sonny, wait, listen, there's still a lot of confusion about who's left in the building.
Sonny: No, don't waste my time! I need to find my wife.
Alexis: Carly! Carly, are you in there? Carly! Carly, Iím going to get help! Carly, Iím going to get help!
Jax: No, no, there's still no hope of reaching the stairs, ok? Now, is there any chance of an evacuation? Hello? I'm sorry, could you repeat -- could you repeat that? Great, great, ok. Well, just, you know, don't forget us. We're up in the penthouse. Hello?
Sam: I heard that. There aren't any sealed doors or separate ventilation. We're trapped in here, aren't we?
Jax: I didn't want you to be afraid.
Sam: We're going to die?
Jax: Odds are against us.
Sam: Can I ask you something? Can you just hold me, please?
Jax: I can do better than that.
[Romantic music plays]
Jax: May I have this dance?
Fireman: I'm sorry, sir. No one but emergency personnel allowed.
Cameron: It's all right, I'm a doctor. I'm here to help.
Fireman: Ok. Why don't you go over to my fire truck and get some bunker gear. Excuse me.
Alexis: I just came from the 12th floor! There's a woman in there, Carly Corinthos!
Man: I --
Alexis: She's trapped behind a door!
Man: I'll give them the information. Don't worry about it.
Alexis: Oh, my God, my nephew, Nikolas Cassadine! He was at the auction!
Man: I'll tell them, but don't worry about it. It's chaos up there. I'll get somebody to take you to the hospital.
Alexis: Oh, my God! Will you please get them out of there?
Nikolas: I need a -- I need a medical kit dropped in! There's a woman up here, she's bleeding to death!
Edward: What's the matter with those damn helicopter pilots? They should be able to handle a little wind.
Tracy: Daddy, it's too dangerous. They tried.
Edward: And all the while, Emily looks like she's getting weaker. Something has to be done!
Justus: We can say a prayer.
Edward: Hmm? Well, all right. Emily has always been sort of a gift from heaven. Maybe God will listen now.
Justus: Dear Lord, your child Emily needs a miracle. She's been a gift to so many people and to our difficult, troubled family. Forgive us for the times we've taken her for granted and allowed ourselves to be ruled by greed. We're thankful for the lessons of love Emily has taught us. Sustain her tonight, Lord. Help her through this.
Man: My wife's in the kitchen with our children. Mickey and Molly can't stop coughing. Can you check them for smoke inhalation?
Monica: Yes. Yes, my -- my daughter's safe.
Helena: Poor Nikolas. He honestly believes that he's in love with you. It would be better for everyone if you were to bleed to death tragically.
Skye: I feel like an idiot.
Luke: Oh, you look like a princess!
Skye: Oh, your opinion doesn't count. You're just delirious with joy over finding that stupid treasure. Now, come on, Luke, we have to move faster!
Luke: Give me a break! I'm dragging my booty as fast as I can!
Skye: Can we lose half of it?
Luke: Oh, perish the thought, woman.
Skye: Oh, what if we perish instead? I swear to you, Luke, that if we get killed over this heap of junk, I will never forgive you. If we are lucky enough to actually make it to the lobby, how do you propose we make a discreet exit, dragging and wearing stolen treasure?
Luke: Oh, you always ask the wrong questions!
Luke: Somebody's coming. This is your chance to try that discreet exit.
Cameron: Well, you two look to be in one piece.
Luke: Well, at least we're going the right way. Doctor, you lost your sense of direction?
Cameron: Probably. Lost everything else.
Monica: Were you able to get a hold of anybody?
Nikolas: They say it's still too windy to land a chopper on the roof, but they may be able to get close enough to drop a medical kit.
Monica: Well, we don't have a lot of time, Nikolas. That tourniquet is only a temporary fix. That wound needs to be sutured as soon as possible.
Nikolas: What if it isn't?
Monica: Then she could bleed to death!
Helena: You insipid little girl. You're not worth my grandson's life. He won't leave you to save himself. Not as long as -- as you're in this world.
Lucky: Ok, just stay in touch.
Lucky: There's no list of Carly being evacuated.
Sonny: Forget it, I'll find her.
Lucky: Sonny --
Brian: We're lucky that maintenance crawlspace was still open.
Jason: Whoa, wait a minute.
Jason: What was that?
Jason: Courtney! Courtney!
Brian: This must be the dog Courtney was looking for.
Courtney: Skippy? Oh, come here, Skippy. Come here. Oh, come here. Yes, good boy. You scared me. God. Oh, my God. Oh, my God.
Lucky: I shouldn't have brought you down here.
Sonny: I'm grateful. Tell me what I need to know here.
Lucky: Well, there's cameras placed all over the hotel. They'll indicate which areas are passable or blocked, if there's anybody down there.
Sonny: These screens are dark. What does that mean?
Lucky: The walls, the ceilings, they're either gone or they're going as we speak.
Sonny: All right. We'll start right here.
Lucky: Wait, Sonny.
Lucky: Help me out. Didn't you just have me arrest Carly for violating a restraining order?
Sonny: I don't care whether you get it or not right now. Carly's my wife. I have to find her.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Jason: Courtney, go!
Sam: I'm exactly where I want to be.
Monica: Oh, my God.
Luke: Watch out!
Sonny: Carly's my wife. I have to find her.
