Lucky: I have no grounds for arrest, Carly.

Carly: She just admitted to aiding and abetting a kidnapping.

Sam: Hey, I just -- I delivered a message from Sonny. That's all. And I assume I am free to go, right?

Lucky: Well, take a piece of advice with you -- stay out of this. You have no idea what kind of trouble you're asking for.

Sam: All right. Consider me warned.

Carly: Are you out of your mind? What the hell are you doing here, Lucky?

Lorenzo: Carly --

Carly: She just told you that she --

Lorenzo: Carly, there's no need to take this out on Lucky. We need to stay calm.

Carly: What are you talking about, "stay calm"? My husband's whore just showed up here and informed me that he is stealing my kids! If you had arrested her like I asked, he might have stayed in town to bail her out. But now he's got no reason to stay and he can do whatever the hell he wants with my kids.

Michael: I want to find mommy.

Jason: You can't, Michael. We have to leave.

Michael: It's not fair.

Jason: Ok -- look, I'm sorry about this. I really am. But you have to do what your father says.

Courtney: Michael, sweetie, why don't you go inside and see if Penny will you give a bag of cookies for your trip.

Michael: Ok.

Courtney: Ok. You can't really be serious about helping Sonny steal Carly's kids.

Jason: Wait, wait, Courtney, I don't -- I don't think that's what's going on. He's going to take the kids on a trip until this -- you know, this custody thing is settled.

Courtney: And that's ok with you?

[Emily cries]

Emily: Oh. You're really -- you're really here. I'm not -- I'm not dreaming or hallucinating.

Nikolas: Don't you know by now that I love you too much to ever leave you?

Emily: Oh.

Nikolas: I love you.

Emily: I think I'm losing my mind.

Nikolas: No. Or else we're both dead and this is heaven.

Emily: No. You're hurt, and nothing hurts in heaven. And you're never afraid, and I'm so afraid right now that this isn't real.

Nikolas: Oh, god. There was this -- this heat and then the explosion. And the last thing I remember wasn't that I was afraid I was going to die but that I didn't want to leave you. Maybe this is what it feels like to be a ghost. You know, maybe I -- maybe I am dead under a pile of burning rubble.

Emily: You're real, and if you're not, they can just put me in a straitjacket and take me away. I'm never going to stop believing in you again.

Luke: You'll be there all mine hey, slow down. Don't break one of those pretty little ankles.

Skye: Oh, I hope you haven't been waiting too long. I actually went back to the hospital to see Edward after we left the chapel, and that's where I was when I got your call. And I had to go home and change, so I -- what are you wearing?

Luke: Blues gear. There's a great new blues trio playing over at the old roadhouse near Greenville.

Skye: Blues trio?

Luke: Blues? You know, blues, as in my mother's hanging from the rafters and my papa ran away and my dog's only one who likes me but he's been sick you know. What's the matter? You've never gotten into blues? You don't like to wallow in the muck of the real deal, the lowdown dirty?

Skye: Hello. We're supposed to be working at the haunted star. Remember that place, your so-called dream? Or was that some excuse you came up with to keep me around?

Jason: I don't agree with sonny, with what he's doing, but Carly has to take some responsibility here. She's pushing Sonny too hard and she knows she's going to provoke him into pushing back. All I can do is try to protect Michael and Morgan from -- from as much of the fallout as I can.

Courtney: Ok, fine. You handle it your way, but I'm calling Carly.

Jason: You're going to call -- call her, fine. She's going to make things worse. Call her.

Courtney: Jason, Michael and Morgan are Carly's children. She has a right to know if they're being taken away.

Jason: You do what you have to do.

Sonny: Yeah, we'll be there as soon as possible.

[Knock on door]

Sam: Hey.

Sonny: How'd it go with Carly?

Sam: Well, not great. That ex of yours, she is -- she's out for blood. She tried to have me arrested for aiding and abetting a kidnapping.

Sonny: Ok. Carly's a loose cannon. She always has been. What else happened? Tell me.

Sam: I -- I just -- I don't know. I suggest you get to the airport and fast because she sicced the cops on you, and I'm sure they're on their way to the airport to intercept you as we speak.

Sonny: Well, that's perfect.

Sam: Oh, man. Wait. Did I miss something here?

Sonny: When Carly loses her temper, she doesn't think, she lashes out, and she does crazy things like shoot people in open court. Pretty soon, she's going to start messing up, creating huge public scenes, and it's just going to show how she is the unfit mother.

Sam: My god. Now, you're -- you're deliberately provoking her.

Carly: You were standing right here. You heard that woman say that sonny would not give me my kids.

Lucky: Ok, I understand this is a delicate matter, Carly. But Sam McCall, she's involved with sonny, right?

Carly: Yeah, obviously!

Lucky: Ok, then maybe she has her own agenda for making you angry or wanting you upset.

Carly: You're really going to stand here and analyze Sam's motives while sonny is out stealing my kids? They could be halfway around the world right now.

Lorenzo: No, I doubt it. Sonny would only leave as a last resort. There's something else going on here.

[Phone rings]

Carly: Hello.

Courtney: Hey, Jason is taking Michael to the airport. Morgan and Sonny and Leticia are meeting him there. They're leaving the country.

Carly: Thanks. Thanks for the heads-up. I'll call you later. Ok, that was Courtney. Sonny is on his way to the airport with the kids right now. Is that enough for you? That is two witnesses.

Lucky: Ok --

Carly: Get a squad car, tell them to meet us at the airport, and we can catch Sonny in the act of taking my kids! 

Emily: I was afraid you'd died when the roof collapsed.

Nikolas: When the helicopter cleared the building, I ran for the stairs. It was -- it was really dark and smoky. And I -- I kept losing my balance. I kept falling. And my hands -- they were burning from touching the hot metal, but I didn't even notice. All I kept thinking about was your face when you were so sick last summer and how hard you had to fight. You. You wouldn't let yourself die. You loved me too much. And I had to love you like that. Strange in a way when you don't think about anything else and you just concentrate on -- when you just concentrate on "I love my Emily and I have to live for her." When you just concentrate on that, everything else just fades away. Shh. It's ok.

Emily: Thank you for living and for coming back to me.

Nikolas: Jason. What happened to Jason? Did he make it out?

Emily: The firefighters said that no one was left alive in the building, and then I saw someone through the smoke. And it -- it felt like I'd lived my whole life in that one second when I hoped it was you. And then Jason walked out. And he's my brother and I love him, and now I can be completely grateful that he lived because you lived, too.

Nikolas: Did he tell you that I cut through his handcuffs with a fire ax?

Emily: And you saved his life.

Nikolas: I caused the gas explosion that nearly killed us -- another important reminder that I need to stay away from manual labor at all times.

Emily: You have the most beautiful smile.

Nikolas: Oh, god. Oh, god. Some people live their whole life and never realize what it feels like to breathe the air, see the stars, touch somebody's face, until -- until it gets taken away from them. Come here.

Alexis: Nikolas?

Emily: You see him, right? I'm not just hallucinating.

Alexis: I knew you were indestructible. Well done.

Luke: You thought I called you to go to work?

Skye: Well, it's a normal assumption, considering the Haunted Star opened two hours ago and, well, you're the owner, I'm the hostess.

Luke: But it never occurred to you that I might want to just socialize?

Skye: "Socialize." Like a date?

Luke: Well, I wouldn't -- um -- wouldn't really call it a date. It's more like a --

Skye: A what?

Luke: Trip to the roadhouse to soak in some blues, you know? But it's ok if you're not interested. I don't --

Skye: Oh, hey, I didn't -- I didn't say I wasn't interested. I just -- I wasn't prepared for you to ask me out. That's all.

Luke: You need to be prepared? What happened to, you know, spur-of-the-moment spontaneity, you know, "I've got the caddy gassed up, let's take a drive in the moonlight"?

Skye: Hey, I can do spur-of-the-moment, ok? It's just I --

Luke: Whoa. I'm not --

Skye: I prefer a heads-up.

Luke: Well, I'm not seeing that spur-of-the-moment thing here.

Skye: Well, it's just --

Luke: Just what?

Skye: Well, we kissed again, and we both agreed that it didn't mean anything. So now if you're telling me that you changed your mind, I --

Luke: Would you like me to change my mind?

Faith: Well, aren't we an interesting gathering. Now, tell me -- if the three of us are on the pier, who's watching our investment?

Sam: Hey. Thanks for agreeing to meet me.

Jax: You know, I have to admit I was a little surprised to get your call. I thought we settled everything between us.

Sam: Almost. One loose end. I want to pay you back for the Lazarus III.

Jax: It's not important.

Sam: It is to me.

Jax: May I ask why?

Sam: Because, Jax, I am -- I am not what you think. I am not this heartless schemer always hustling for the next buck. I didn't use you to get a boat or anything else.

Jax: Well, that may be true, but I think the real reason you're so anxious to pay me back is because you don't want to owe me now that you're with Sonny.

Michael: Why do we have to do this?

Jason: Where's Morgan?

Sonny: On the plane with Leticia.

Michael: I don't want to leave.

Sonny: Mike -- listen, I understand that, but you don't decide what's best for you. I'm your father. I decide what's best.

Michael: Can I call mommy and tell her goodbye? She's going to be sad without us.

Sonny: You can call her when we get to where we're going.

Officer: Michael Corinthos? Jason Morgan.

Sonny: Like you don't know?

Officer: I'd like to see some I.D.

Sonny: What the -- come on. What do you mean? Can't you see my son's right here?

Carly: Thank god. You know, I want you to arrest --

Jason: Carly --

Carly: Both of these men!

Jason: Just wait, Carly! Do you see Michael? Just wait.

Faith: I don't like the idea of our casino open and running unsupervised. You see, it makes the employees too comfortable. Next thing you know, they're skimming off the top.

Luke: Oh, ye of so little faith.

Faith: You're cute.

Luke: I know.

Skye: Excuse me, but I personally interviewed and hired everyone who works at the Haunted Star. I can say that they are all above reproach, which is more than I can say for you, which is precisely why you don't get a say in how Luke and I run our club.

Faith: Oh. Wrong again. You see, I actually have a great deal invested in our little venture.

Skye: All right, you know what? I've had enough of you. You've made nothing but a nuisance of yourself.

Faith: Is that so?

Skye: Yeah. You commandeer the place for mob meetings, you attract an unsavory element, and don't even think that I've forgotten about the time when you tried to cut Luke out of the club while he was out of town.

Luke: Yeah, I heard about that. You know, that doesn't exactly engender faith, Faith.

Faith: Well, no, actually -- ahem -- I was trying to protect your interests. You see, Skye here was getting a little full of herself and trying to control the club, and she needed to be reined in -- still does, if you asked me.

Skye: Yeah, well, no one did. We don't need your contribution to the Haunted Star, so why don't you take your business someplace else. I know I'd be so happy to see the last of you, and I think Luke would, too.

Luke: Hold on there, Blaze. That's not exactly true.

Nikolas: Anyway, I'm -- I'm alive and I'm safe and so are the two of you and that's all that really matters at this point.

Alexis: I almost had to probate your will. And I thank you for providing for Kristina.

Nikolas: Oh, you're welcome.

Alexis: And my favorite part was when you disinherited Helena.

Nikolas: That's my pleasure. What? What?

Alexis: Cameron Lewis died in the fire, and Zander's disappeared.

Nikolas: What are you -- you mean he wasn't in the basement?

Alexis: That apparently was Scott Baldwin.

Emily: If Zander got away, he's probably in Canada by now.

Nikolas: Yeah. Well, that -- that's kind of -- kind of a lot to take in. I mean, I -- I thought Zander burned to death because of me.

Alexis: Whatever happened to Zander is not your fault.

Nikolas: I'm sorry. I know you cared a lot about him and Cameron as well.

Alexis: I did, and I should have told him so. But I guess it's too late for that now.

Nikolas: I'm sorry.

Alexis: I would much rather focus on you and how nice it is to see your face.

Emily: That makes two of us.

Alexis: Obviously, Emily is way too nice and too in love with you to tell you that you smell --

[Nikolas chuckles]

Alexis: And that you're very dirty, and I don't want you to get anything on the furniture because you can't afford to reupholster it. Take a shower.

Nikolas: Ok. You don't go anywhere.

Emily: Not a chance. I'm almost afraid to let him out of sight.

Alexis: I can sympathize.

Emily: Thank you, Alexis, for your -- your kindness and your support. I know I've been a basket case.

Alexis: No, Emily. A basket case is someone who gets so caught up in their own grief and fear that they blurt out things that shouldn't be said. You aren't even remotely close to being a basket case.

Ms. Willis: Courtney, is that you? I haven't seen you in a while.

Courtney: Yeah, I've -- I've missed being here.

Ms. Willis: Oh, I miss your smiling face. I assumed you and that gentleman friend of yours were giving up the lease.

Courtney: Jason is. He doesn't have use for the place anymore, but I do. Look, I -- I know that the lease is in Jason's name and -- I don't know -- I picked the home and I really loved living here. I'd love to live here again.

Ms. Willis: Ooh. You want to lease it on your own?

Courtney: No. I want to buy it.

Sam: I like being independent, Jax. You know that. I'm not taking any money from Sonny, and I don't want to owe you any, either.

Jax: Ok, fine. If it means that much to you, you can pay me back for your ship.

Sam: Ok. Good.

Jax: Ok.

Sam: It's going to take a while, though.

Jax: Clearly, I'm not in a hurry.

Sam: I plan to save money by living onboard.

Jax: I thought you moved to a new hotel.

Sam: No. Just for the night. I'm moving back to the Lazarus, and I start looking for work tomorrow. I just -- I don't know. I figure a busy harbor like Port Charles will have a lot of salvage activity.

Jax: Sure. I can give you some referrals if you like.

Sam: No, thank you. I think it's better if we keep our distance.

Jax: Because of Sonny?

Sam: Come on. It is not a secret that he doesn't like you.

Jax: Ok, so how long do you think it's going to be before your whole life revolves around Sonny?

Sam: No, no, no, that will never happen.

Jax: Well, I hope not because the first time you do something that he doesn't like or approve of, he's going to break you down like it's nothing at all.

Sam: Why? Is that what he did to Brenda?

Jax: Brenda, Lily. He's doing it to his wife. Get a clue from what's right in front of your face, Sam. The way he's treating Carly right now -- you're next.

Carly: Michael, come here. Come here. Why don't you -- why don't you go with Lucky and go wait in front of the airport, ok? He can show you the inside of the police car.

Michael: Why? What's going to happen?

Sonny: If you truly -- hey, you know what? If you truly believe what you're doing is right, let Michael see what's going on here.

Carly: You know, maybe I should. Maybe -- maybe my big mistake has been trying to protect him --

Lorenzo: Carly, Carly --

Sonny: Yeah, maybe --

Carly: From who you really are!

Sonny: Ah, ah.

Lorenzo: Carly, we're leaving now.

Carly: We're not going anywhere.

Lorenzo: Yes --

Carly: I am not --

Lorenzo: We'll settle this later, not in the airport.

Sonny: Go with him.

Lorenzo: You can call Michael, all right?

Carly: Shut up!

Sonny: Go with him.

Lorenzo: Trust me. Say goodbye. Let's go.

Carly: Come here, Michael. Listen, I know this is confusing for you. But I love you, mister man.

Michael: You'll call me?

Carly: Oh, you bet I will.

Lucky: Michael, come here. Sonny, the tower's been contacted. You won't be cleared for takeoff.

Sonny: Fine.

Lucky: And I am personally escorting you and your children back home.

Sonny: Lucky --

Lucky: It's all right. I can handle it from here.

Sonny: Ok, you know what? Morgan and Leticia are on the plane. I want you to show Lucky where they're at and go get them, ok?

Michael: Ok.

Lucky: Sonny, wait here.

Sonny: Damn it.

Jason: I -- I know you're frustrated, but taking the boys --

sonny: I had no intentions of leaving, Jason.

Jason: What are you talking about?

Sonny: I wanted Carly to come here. I wanted Carly to chase me, right, have me arrested -- not in front of Michael. I planned to have him on the plane. I knew by sending Sam to tell Carly that I'm taking off with the boys she would get furious and do exactly what she did -- you know, scream, whatever, right in front of the cops.

Jason: You set Carly up.

Sonny: And it would've worked. But her new boyfriend Alcazar -- he's smart. If he stops Carly from being her own worst enemy, then this fight for my sons is going to get a hell of a lot more difficult.

Skye: Have you forgotten one very important detail? Faith is a homicidal maniac.

Luke: True, but she's also a savvy investor.

Faith: Oh, thank you. It's nice to be appreciated.

Luke: Her participation guarantees notoriety. Plus we all benefit from the percentage of laundering her money, which I explained to you already.

Skye: Yeah, but, you see, that was before you disappeared and left me alone with this bleach-blond barracuda, before I had to stop her from murdering Justus Ward, before she tried to kick us out of our own club.

Faith: Is this is a private rant, or can anyone chime in?

Luke: Chime.

Faith: Good. See, now that you're back and someone competent is in control, I promise to be on my very, very best behavior. See, I'd rather have you on my side than standing against me, so to speak.

Luke: I'm glad we understand each other. I look forward to doing more business with you.

Faith: I'm breathless with anticipation. Don't disappoint me.

Skye: Do you want to get the knife out of my back because it's a little hard to reach.

Luke: Oh, come on, Blaze. Calm down.

Skye: Oh, no, don't "Blaze" me! You just sided against me with a psychopath!

Luke: I think she's more of a sociopath, actually, but she's not so bad. Believe me, I -- I've danced with worse.

Skye: Oh, my god. I can't believe I didn't see this before. You actually enjoy having that woman around, don't you? You like the treachery with a little murder thrown in. You're really having fun here, aren't you?

Luke: That's somewhat true.

Skye: Oh! Well, that is precisely why I will not go to any blues roadhouse with you! You're a terminally arrested adolescent. And it's bad enough I have to work with you. Anything else would just be --

Luke: What?

Skye: Ugh! Never kiss me again. Do you understand me? Because if you do -- oh, I swear, I'll give you murder. I'll shoot you myself!

Helena: What -- Nikolas?

Nikolas: Hello, grandmother.

Helena: You're alive.

Nikolas: Oh, yeah. I can see that you're -- that you're worried, grandmother, but I'm -- I'm all right, really.

Helena: It felt like a cosmic joke that you would die in a fire caused by someone else's negligence. After everything I did to save you -- you -- you are the strongest of the strong. Oh, my perfect grandson.

Nikolas: Oh, don't get carried away, ok? I didn't turn into a superhero in there. I was lucky enough to end up under a steel beam which protected me instead of crushing me.

Helena: Oh, you've always been far too modest. You weren't fated to die. You were meant to live out your legacy, to be the greatest Cassadine of all.

Carly: How could you do that to me, Lorenzo? How could you do that? You have sworn to me over and over again that you were on my side.

Lorenzo: I am.

Carly: Yeah, and then as soon as we have the perfect opportunity to have Sonny arrested, you drag me out of there. Do you want me to lose my kids?

Lorenzo: Of course not, but you're not going to get them by playing straight into Sonny's hands. You have to think about how tonight would look in front of a judge -- if you had had Sonny arrested with three police officers there willing to testify how Michael watched his father get carried away in handcuffs.

Carly: Well, he had me arrested.

Lorenzo: Exactly, so it looks like payback, like revenge is more important to you than what's best for your sons. Carly, I am on your side. That's why I got you out of there.

Carly: I tried to get Michael to leave with lucky.

Lorenzo: Yes. And then sonny goaded you and you snapped. You are playing right into his hands. He is trying to get you to make mistakes. And if you continue to think with your emotions, Carly, then you're going to give sonny everything he wants.

Jason: Ms. McNeill?

Jen: Yes?

Jason: I'm Jason Morgan.

Jen: Mr. Morgan. I was planning to contact you. Carly listed you as a potential witness for the custody hearing.

Jason: Yeah, well, before we get to that, I have a message for you from Sonny Corinthos.

Sonny: All right. I know you got a lot of questions. You can ask me anything.

Michael: You won't get mad?

Sonny: No.

Michael: And you'll tell me the truth? I'm old enough to handle it.

Sonny: Even if it hurts? All right, then that's what you're going to get.

Michael: Why are you and mommy always fighting?

Sonny: Um -- mom -- mom and I, we're getting a divorce. Do you know what that means?

Michael: It happened before. Mommy and I moved away and we lived in a new house.

Sonny: Right, right, and -- but this time, you're going to be staying with me. Mommy's not going to be living with us, and I know that's going to be hard on you.

Michael: I miss mommy so much.

Sonny: I know you do, buddy. I know you do. Listen -- I know you're -- I don't want -- it's really hard to be in the middle of this, but I need you to be strong and to be brave, and you just got to remember that mommy and I will always love you, no matter what.

Michael: That other lady, Sam?

Sonny: What about her?

Michael: You aren't going to marry her, are you?

Sonny: Why would you say that?

Michael: I don't know. I just don't like her.

Sonny: Well, I don't expect you to like her. I mean, she's -- she's a friend of mine, Sam, right. I'm going to visit her. But she's not going to be coming over here, and I'm definitely not going to marry her.

Sam: Oh. I'm sorry. I thought your kids -- I thought they'd be gone by now.

Nikolas: I'm glad that you survived the fire as well. As much as I've hated you at times, I never really wanted you dead.

Helena: I know that. And I know that on some level, you've always understood my devotion to you.

Nikolas: Doesn't mean I accept or condone all the terrible things you've done. All I'm saying is that maybe, maybe this fire is a chance for us to start over, to connect as a -- as a family -- not that that's even possible. Believe me, I have my doubts about your motivations.

Helena: No, Nikolas, it is more than possible. And I have wonderful news. I have found a way to secure your future.

Emily: Hello, Helena. I'm sure you're as relieved as the rest of us to see that Nikolas is home safe.

Helena: Well --

Nikolas: Yes, I was -- I was just telling grandmother here that maybe this is a chance for all of us to start over.

Emily: You think?

Nikolas: I'm willing to try.

Emily: Then so will I, for Nikolas' sake.

Helena: Emily, I can see how much you love my grandson, and it's quite obvious how much he loves you. That's why I'm asking -- I'm beseeching you -- break this engagement and walk out of Nikolas' life forever.

Courtney: So, what happened at the airport?

Jason: Nothing good. Boys are back at the penthouse and Carly's madder than ever.

Courtney: You realize things are only going to get worse.

Jason: Yeah, I know.

Courtney: Then why are you siding with Sonny?

Jason: You're taking sides. You're the one who called Carly. You made it worse, like I said you would.

Courtney: Ok, you know what? Jason, you're right. You're right. It was a mistake to call Carly or get involved in any way. No matter how much I love them, Sonny and Carly are both completely wrong and they're going to rip each other to shreds and everyone else around them. The only sane thing to do is walk away, right?

Jason: Yeah, just -- just walk away. It's not as easy for me as it seems to be for you.

Carly: Ok, Jen, can we use Sonny's trying to take the kids out of the country against him?

Jen: Probably not since Mr. Corinthos was the custodial parent at the time.

Carly: What are you talking about? I have temporary custody of them. Sonny has no rights to them.

Jen: The judge rescinded the order, Carly. The children will remain with Sonny until permanent custody is decided at the hearing.

Lorenzo: Sonny got to the judge.

Jen: Yeah, it appears so.

Carly: Ok, well, you find another judge. You appeal the decision. I don't care what you have to do.

Jen: You're going to have to take that up with your new attorney.

Lorenzo: What'd you say?

Jen: I'm resigning from the case.

Lorenzo: I am paying you a fortune to represent Carly.

Jen: The money is no longer a factor. I was just informed by Jason Morgan that if I continue to represent you, my other clients will be encouraged to go elsewhere, my standing in front of the bar will be called into question, and several cases that I now have pending will be thrown out of court.

Carly: So what am I supposed to do?

Jen: Carly, the simple fact is your husband is a very powerful and very ruthless man who's essentially proven himself to be above the law. I'm sorry. I just don't see how you're going to win this fight.

Sonny: There's been a change of plans. My sons are staying in town.

Sam: Well, it's -- that's too bad that you won't get to have your vacation, then.

Michael: I know you're my daddy's friend, but you won't be able to come here anymore. And my dad -- he's not going to marry you, either.

Sonny: Michael, Michael, Michael, Michael. You got to get to bed. It's getting late. You know what I mean? So you get upstairs, you get ready. I'll come tuck you in, all right?

Michael: Ok.

Sonny: Say good night to Sam.

Michael: Good night.

Sam: Good night.

Sonny: I'm sorry about that. It's --

Sam: No. Don't apologize. I -- I understand, you know? Michael is protective of his mother, and he's going to do or say anything he can to drive me away, right?

Sonny: Actually, Michael was just repeating what I told him.

Helena: Emily, you have fallen in love with a Cassadine man -- easy to do but hard to live with. Now, to them, love is not a pretty, sentimental emotion. It's -- it's an all-consuming passion, a --

[Nikolas chuckles]

Helena: Well, it's a kind of madness.

Nikolas: You're being a bit histrionic there, don't you think?

Helena: No, you know I'm right. Nikolas, look at Stavros and Stefan. They were all-consumed by their obsession for Laura, and they destroyed her. They shattered her mind. Laura was fortunate. She managed to walk out with her life. Alexis' mother did not.

Nikolas: Because of you!

Helena: No. No, because she loved Mikkos. Emily, loving Nikolas will ruin your life in the end and, in turn, it will destroy his life. Now, you don't want that, I know. So do the right thing. Let Nikolas go.

Jax: Need some help?

Courtney: No, I can manage.

Jax: Where you off to? Not that it's any of my business.

Courtney: You're right, it isn't.

Jax: You're not giving up and going home, are you?

Courtney: As a matter of fact, I am. Yes, I am going to my new home, the one that I -- I've made for myself.

Jax: As opposed to the one you made with Jason.

Courtney: You certainly are full of questions.

Jax: Well, what can I say? I'm intrigued by you on some level.

Courtney: Yeah, because you hate my brother and my husband.

Jax: Well, that could be, but maybe not.

Courtney: And if you must know, the answer is yes, I am through living above Kelly's and waiting for things to change. I'm making my own changes.

Jax: Well, maybe I can help.

Lorenzo: Thanks for coming.

Jason: Well, if it's about the boys, you know I'd show up.

Lorenzo: You have to know that this custody battle between Sonny and Carly is only going to escalate. They're out to hurt each other. Neither one is thinking clearly.

Jason: So?

Lorenzo: I want it over, with as little damage to everyone as possible. That means we have to step in.

Jason: "We"?

Lorenzo: You and I are the only two that are thinking rationally right now. And as distasteful as it is for both of us, we need to work together to come up with a solution.

Alexis: I'm not sure why you asked me here. I can't imagine what else we have to say to each other.

Carly: Can't you? We both have so much in common. We are both mothers of Sonny's kids. We both want to keep them safe from him. My lawyer quit, and I need a new one.

Alexis: I'd be happy to give you a couple of names.

Carly: No, I don't want the names. I want you to represent me. You need to get me sole, permanent custody of Michael and Morgan, or I will tell sonny that he is Kristina's father.

Sonny: I think I owe you an apology. I should've never involved you in my family problems anyway.

Sam: Hey, no harm done. You asked me to deliver a message to Carly. I did. End of story.

Sonny: Yeah, I know. But the thing is, I've been thinking, and I might have given you the wrong impression -- you know, pulling you into this fight with Carly, introducing you to Michael. My association with you is -- is separate from the rest of my life.

Sam: What are you -- what are you trying to say, Sonny?

Sonny: Well, I'm just -- what I'm trying to say is that it's probably a good idea that you don't come here. It kind of upsets Michael, you know, and he's had a lot to deal with.

Sam: I get it. I am the other woman. I'm the big secret. I'm not supposed to come to the house or talk to the kiddies. You and I only meet when it's convenient with you.

Sonny: Well, we -- we meet when we both want.

Sam: Well, what if I don't want to? Sonny, what if -- what if you and your complicated life are a little bit too much for me to deal with? Maybe it would be better if we just called it quits.

Sonny: Yeah, maybe it would.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Dillon: I'm always going to care about Georgie, ok?

Sage: Fine. Who do you want to be with?

Jason: I don't need your help.

Sam: How about what we had before?

Sonny: I'm going to end this because I don't want to see you get hurt.

Carly: What is our first move?

Alexis: You're not going to like it.

Carly: We can't see each other anymore.
