Zander's voice: "Dear Elizabeth, if you're reading this, I'm probably dead. Ric killed me. And you know why."

Ric: Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: Hey, honey.

Ric: Hey. You seem upset. Is something wrong?

Carly: Thank you for coming.

Courtney: Well, you sounded pretty tense. What's up?

Carly: The family court is interviewing Michael -- today. They're going to ask him where he wants to live.

Courtney: Yeah, I know.

Carly: I need to get to Michael before he speaks to the judge. Can you help me?

Sam: Hey. Did you sleep at all?

Sonny: Yeah, just in and out.

Sam: Listen, I know you're -- you're worried about Michael. But it's going to be ok, Sonny. You're not going to lose your boys.

Sonny: I don't want to do what I might have to to keep them.

[Thermometer beeps]

Jason: 98.4.

Michael: I told you I was sick.

Jason: What are you talking about? You don't have a fever. That's normal.

Michael: My tummy hurts.

Jason: Come here. I know you're nervous about -- about seeing the judge today. Don't be. He just -- he just wants to know what you're feeling, that's all. He wants to talk to you.

Michael: He's going to ask me who I want to live with. What should I say? Mommy or daddy?

Sage: Uh -- would you mind if we went somewhere else? I don't really feel like Kelly's today.

Dillon: Yeah. Well, I'm starving.

Sage: Yeah, well, I'm not just trying to be high maintenance. But I have an actual reason for wanting to go somewhere else.

Dillon: Shh -- yeah, I know, I know, I know. Let's order, though.

[Mike whistles]

Dillon: Mike --

Mike: Hey!

Dillon: Two specials, por favor.

Mike: Now, look, you're going to have to be a little more specific.

Dillon: I am being specific. The special specials.

Mike: Right. Right. Sorry -- since Bobbie asked me to help run this place, you know, it's taken me a little while to get up to speed here.

Sage: Hey, since when do you order for me?

Dillon: I'm a take-charge kind of guy.

Sage: Well, I don't want someone to control me, especially not you, especially not today, because I'm not really in the mood. And you always try and --

Mike: For the lady.

Sage: I never even told you.

Dillon: Happy birthday, Sage.

Georgie: Kat, thank you for calling us.

Maxie: How's our dad?

Kat: The doctor's in with him now. I'll find you as soon as they're done.

Georgie: I thought he was getting better.

Maxie: Yeah. The doctor said that he was at high risk for infection.

Georgie: So, what, do you think it was us? Do you think -- do you think we sat with him too long, or we weren't careful enough with the gowns, or --

Maxie: Don't imagine the worst right now, ok? We aren't going to know anything until the doctors tell us.

Georgie: I'm so scared, Maxie. Sometimes I feel like Mac is the only person that we can count on.

Maxie: Do you want to call Dillon? It might help to have him wait with you.

Georgie: It feels dishonest. Dillon still thinks I'm with Tom, and it didn't help any when yesterday I let Tom slobber all over me.

Maxie: Just don't think about that right now, Georgie.

Georgie: I can't help it. This is all Dillon's mother's fault. If Tracy hadn't convinced me to break up with Dillon, then none of this would have happened.

Justus: Mac Scorpio's condition is deteriorating. If he doesn't make it, his daughters will have grounds for a wrongful death suit.

Tracy: If my father is judged incompetent, we cannot be held liable.

Justus: The families of the victims are entitled to damages. The object here is to protect the family from bankruptcy, not to duck responsibility altogether.

Elizabeth: I was planning to cook you this decadent souffle tonight, and I realized there's no way I'm going to be able to pull it off.

Ric: I appreciate the thought, but you should be home resting.

Elizabeth: I'm trying, but I'm a little worried about Nikolas.

Ric: Yeah, you didn't sleep very well last night.

Elizabeth: Yeah.

Ric: You remember what Dr. Meadows said. You need to reduce your stress level.

Elizabeth: I know. I know, and I would be able to do that if you could drop the charges.

Ric: Sweetheart, the D.A. doesn't get to choose who he prosecutes. The police and the evidence decide that.

Elizabeth: Yeah, I know you're just doing your job, and I'm trying really hard to stay calm. But I think it would help if you had a lead on Scott Baldwin.

Ric: The investigation is open. But I can't ignore the case against Nikolas.

Elizabeth: Do you believe me when I say he's innocent?

Ric: I believe that you want to believe it. Look, if the jury agrees with you, then they'll exonerate Nikolas and this will all go away. All I want you to do is focus on protecting this baby.

Elizabeth: I want to be at the hearing to show my support.

Ric: Hey, look, nothing is going to happen in there. Nikolas is going to walk in, he's going to make bail, he's going to leave. That's it. All right? Please, just go home and get some rest. You want me to walk you to the car?

Elizabeth: No. No, honey, I'm fine, and you're already late, so, go.

Ric: All right.

Nikolas: Elizabeth --

officer: Keep moving.

Nikolas: Hey --

Elizabeth: Nikolas, wait. Wait a minute. There's something you should know.

Carly: Look, I know this is difficult for you. You care about Sonny, too.

Courtney: Yeah, of course I do.

Carly: I just need to reassure Michael before he speaks with the judge.

Courtney: Carly, Michael knows how much you love him.

Carly: I want to believe that, Courtney. But after everything he has been through, I'm -- I'm worried. What if Michael feels abandoned by me? And I'm sure Morgan has no idea who I am. He's probably forgotten all about me since we've been separated so much since he's been born.

Courtney: Listen, I hate how you and the boys are separated, but the last thing Michael needs right now is a public scene.

Carly: What Michael needs right now is to be with his mother. God, Courtney, no child should have to go through this. And I just -- I want Michael to know that no matter who he chooses, I will love him. I didn't want to keep Sonny out of their lives. He forced me into this.

Courtney: You know, every child deserves a chance to grow up knowing both their parents.

Carly: Right. So you're going to help me?

Courtney: Ok -- the meeting is in an hour and a half in Judge Marland's chambers --

Carly: Oh.

Courtney: It's on the third level of the courthouse.

Carly: Thank you. Thank you so much. You're an amazing friend.

Courtney: You're welcome. You're welcome. But, Carly, I want something in return.

Carly: Yeah, you name it.

Courtney: Ok. Whatever Michael decides, you have to promise me to do whatever it takes to come to terms with Sonny.

Sam: Michael loves you and Carly both. Sonny, even if he wants to live with her, I --

Sonny: Well, that can't happen.

Sam: You said she was willing to share.

Sonny: I'm not.

Sam: When we first met, you thought she was a pretty good mom.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah, she was. She -- she'd do anything to protect and keep her children safe. Until she became obsessed with Alcazar.

Sam: Come on, I think we both know it was a little bit more complicated than that.

Sonny: Sam, you know what? I hope you're not defending Carly, you know, because that's not the --

Sam: No, I am not.

Sonny: All right.

Sam: When I was really little, my mother ditched me. And it hurt not having two parents to count on.

Sonny: Well, my father abandoned my -- my family, too. I hated him for it.

Sam: You probably missed him just the same.

Sonny: Are you trying to tell me something?

Sam: With my mom gone, I always felt some kind of a void in my life.

Sonny: Well, Mike didn't leave a void, he left us vulnerable. He betrayed my mother and me. And Carly did the same thing when she chose Alcazar over her family. As long as she stays with him, I cannot trust her with my children.

Jason: Well, the judge just wants to know where you're going to be the happiest.

Michael: I'm happy when mommy and daddy are here. I want us to live together.

Jason: I do, too. But I don't -- I don't think that's going to happen right now.

Michael: Can you tell me who to choose?

Jason: Um -- no, I can't. I'm sorry, you're going to have to decide for yourself, but I can help. What are you thinking?

Michael: That mommy will be sad if I pick daddy, and he'll be mad if I don't live with him.

Jason: Ok, first of all, your mom and your dad -- they both love you a lot. They always will. It doesn't matter what you tell this judge today.

Michael: I want to live with mommy and daddy both. I don't want to pick at all.

Jason: Well, if that's what you're feeling in your heart, then that's what you're going to tell the judge.

Elizabeth: I'm D.A. Lansing's wife. You wouldn't mind me speaking to my friend for just a minute, would you?

Officer: I'll be right over here.

Elizabeth: Thank you. Are you ok?

Nikolas: I'm all right, considering. What -- what is it you wanted me to know?

Elizabeth: Everything is going to work out. You didn't kill Zander, and you're not going to go to jail for it.

Nikolas: All the evidence is against me, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: Ric is keeping the investigation open. He's just going through the motions with this hearing.

Nikolas: Oh. Well, I hope you're right.

Elizabeth: I am. Nikolas, I know you're innocent.

Nikolas: How can you be so sure, Elizabeth? Unless you really know who killed Zander.

Sage: So, seriously, how did you know it was my birthday?

Dillon: I saw it on your driver's license.

Sage: Cute, and you remembered the date?

Dillon: Sweetheart, beauty is in the details. Besides, what are friends for?

Sage: We're friends now. How did that happen?

Dillon: Um -- timing.

Sage: So, are we the only ones invited to the party?

Dillon: Well, I don't know anybody else. Do you?

Sage: I don't know. I just thought you'd invite someone else.

Dillon: Sage, this is nice. Let's not ruin it by fighting, ok?

Sage: You just said we were friends. Friends talk.

[Dillon sighs]

Sage: And you were worried about Georgie the other day. I just want to know what you're thinking now.

Dillon: I'm worried that Georgie might really be moving on. And I wasn't sure after the fire, so I tested it. I set Tom up.

Sage: What? How?

Dillon: Well, Tom wanted to, like, do something for her to show her, you know, how much he liked her. And I told him to make out with her in a public place.

Sage: Well, isn't that what Georgie did when she first met you?

Dillon: No, no, no, no. She kissed me, once. Tom practically, like, mauled her to death. And -- well, that's the thing, because I thought, you know, Georgie's shy. She's not comfortable with being all physical in a public place. I thought she would hate Tom for it.

Sage: Are you telling me you tried to manipulate Georgie?

Dillon: Well, the whole thing backfired on me.

Sage: Well, they usually do. But you've officially crossed over to the other side. Welcome to the villains' club, Dillon. I'm your president, Sage Alcazar.

Dillon: She's in love with him.

Sage: She's been telling you that for months. It's time you moved on -- for Georgie's sake and yours.

Georgie: He just pulled me into this kiss out of nowhere.

Maxie: That's what you did to Dillon when you first met him at Kelly's.

Georgie: Yeah, but this was different. He, like, grabbed me and stuck his tongue down my throat and groped me. I -- I could have socked him in his perfect little nose.

Maxie: But then you saw Dillon, so you used the kiss to make him jealous?

Georgie: Yeah. How stupid is that? Every opportunity that I get to tell Dillon the truth, I just make it worse -- by getting myself into another lie. I cannot believe that I'm over here obsessing about a boy when our dad's in there fighting for his life.

Maxie: It's ok. You're thinking about somebody you love. And there's nothing wrong with that. Georgie, this is a great hospital, ok? It saved my life, and it's going to save dad's, too.

Georgie: Dr. Quartermaine, have you heard anything about our father?

Monica: Well, actually, I'm sorry to say, your father's lungs have now filled with fluid.

Maxie: You're going to fix it, though, right?

Monica: Well, we're doing everything we can. Hey, I've known your dad a long time. I know he's a fighter, ok?

Maxie: Are you saying that he might not make it, though?

Monica: Let's just think on the positive side, ok? I'll check with you later.

Georgie: Maxie, she never said he was going to be ok. What if he dies?

Jason: Morgan went back to sleep.

Michael: He's lucky he's a baby.

Jason: Why?

Michael: He doesn't have to make decisions.

Jason: Well, neither do you. I mean, this is up to the judge to figure out. All you got to do is be honest and tell him what you want.

Michael: Can you come into the judge's room when we talk?

Jason: This is something you have to do on your own. But I'll tell you what. I'm going to be right outside that door, waiting for you the whole time. So when you come out, I'll be right there.

Sonny: Hey, buddy.

Jason: Hey.

Sonny: You ready to go to court?

Jason: Yeah, I told Michael that I'd go with him and just, you know, wait outside the room while he talks to the judge.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah, sounds good.

Jason: Ok. I'll be right back. I'm going to make a phone call.

Sonny: All right. Come over here, buddy. Ouch. Have a seat in my lap. Are you feeling a little -- a little scared?

Michael: It's ok.

Sonny: Yeah. Well, you're a brave kid, right? I want you to understand that you -- you need to tell the judge, ok, that you want to live here with your daddy.

[Knock on door]

Carly: Oh. Oh. What do you want? Is this another bulletin that Sonny's about to take my kids out of the country?

Sam: No, Carly, Sonny actually doesn't know I'm here. Nice place.

Carly: What do you want?

Sam: Listen, I was talking to Sonny this morning, and I really don't think he wants to separate you from the kids.

Carly: Really? Then why did he file an injunction against me? Why did he intimidate my first attorney into resigning? He's got every intention of cutting me off from my kids.

Sam: It sounded like he wanted to share custody.

Carly: Well, I offered him joint custody more times than once, and he turned it down.

Sam: Listen, Carly, he doesn't want to see the boys get hurt. And as long as you're with alcazar, I don't think he's going to risk sharing custody with you.

Carly: Ok, so if I stop seeing Lorenzo, you think that Sonny would let me have my children back?

Sam: I can't guarantee it, but I think it's a pretty good start. Carly, he doesn't want to split you up from the boys.

Carly: Ok. So if I stop seeing Lorenzo, do you think that Sonny might agree to my one condition?

Sam: Yeah, what is it?

Carly: Dump you first.

Elizabeth: I know you're innocent because it's what you told me. If you killed Zander out of self-defense, you would have said so. And I -- I know you have no reason to lie.

Nikolas: Well, I -- I appreciate your faith. Unfortunately, I don't think Ric agrees with you. I mean, maybe he is just doing his job, like you said. But to me, it sure feels like he's rushing to judgment.

Elizabeth: Lucky, hey.

Lucky: Hey.

Elizabeth: Have you found any evidence against Scott Baldwin?

Lucky: Baldwin?

Elizabeth: Yeah, Ric said he had the police following some leads. Do you know --

Emily: Hey.

Nikolas: Hey.

Emily: I'm so sorry I'm late.

Nikolas: It's all right.

Jen: Ok, listen, the hearing's about to begin.

Nikolas: Ok.

Lucky: I'm going to go with you.

Nikolas: All right.

Elizabeth: Hey, you guys, I -- I really want to be there, but I promised Ric I'd stay home and rest.

Emily: Yeah, well, we'll let you know what happens. Take care of the baby.

Elizabeth: I will.

Emily: Ok.

Elizabeth: Everything's going to be ok. Ok.

Faith: I thought white was your color.

Courtney: Who let you in here?

Faith: Oh, I took care of that myself. Yeah, I wanted to take part in the celebration -- your new job as a big real estate honcho. You know, it was really quite a step, considering that you were slinging loose meat at the dinner just last week.

Courtney: All right, Faith, get out, now.

Faith: It's a gift, the first of many in what I'm sure will be a very lucrative business arrangement.

Courtney: Business?

Faith: Yeah. We'll have spa days, we'll do lunch. You know, shop in all the best stores.

Courtney: Faith, have you been smoking those drugs that you push?

Faith: I think you're going to enjoy being my partner. Two powerful blondes with tons of disposable income.

Courtney: I don't want anything to do with you, ok? Pride-Phillips is a legitimate company.

Faith: Right. That's what makes it so perfect. See, you have major access to the waterfront, and I need it. What do they call that? Synergy.

Courtney: My answer is no.

Faith: Yeah. You'll change your mind with proper -- encouragement.

Sam: This was a waste of my time.

Carly: Does Sonny know that you want to get rid of his kids?

Sam: What?

Carly: You want me to have custody of Michael and Morgan so you can have Sonny all to yourself.

Sam: No, Carly, I do not want to come between sonny and his boys.

Carly: Sure you do. Because Michael and Morgan are a constant reminder of Sonny's life with me.

Sam: Sonny is divorcing you. Ok? This is not a competition.

Carly: Yeah, you're right about that. Because Sonny gave me his heart, and he let me into his heart, not just his bed.

Sam: And now you're out of both.

Carly: I will always know Sonny better than you will.

Sam: You have no idea what Sonny and I share when we're together.

Carly: Ok, what happened to Sonny on his eighth birthday? Why did he leave home? Why is he afraid of the snow? Why does he hate it so much?

Sam: You know what, Carly? I have no idea! I don't have all the details yet!

Carly: Well, you know what? Those details are what makes Sonny who he is! It is why he closes off, and it's why he can't sleep at night. How dare you come in here and try and explain my husband to me!

Sam: Are you finished?

Carly: No, not by a long shot. You go ahead, Sam. You ask Sonny about his past. He may throw you a bone, but he sure as hell is not going to let you into his life completely, because you are a convenience. You are just a pretty girl who's probably good in bed. And he doesn't have to think when he's with you. He doesn't have to care. And god forbid, he doesn't have to need you. You're just easy in every way. And you're going to be just as easy to forget.

Sonny: I know that you love mommy.

Michael: You used to.

Sonny: Yes. Um -- I am sorry about this, but I -- I'm just trying to make sure that no one ever hurts you or Morgan.

Michael: Hurt us? How?

Sonny: Well, when daddy was little, just about your age, my mother, she fell in love with a really bad man who hurt me and my mother both.

Michael: Why didn't your mom make the bad man go away?

Sonny: Because he was a bully, ok? And she was afraid. But as long as you live with me, I will make sure that you will never, ever have to deal with anybody like that.

Michael: It's ok. I'll tell mommy not to make friends with any bad guys who can hurt us.

Sonny: Yeah, no -- I already tried that, but -- look, this -- it's ok, look -- I'm sorry about this, ok? But I just want you to know -- you got to understand right now, ok? This is kind of important. You need to tell the judge that you want to live here with me and your brother. You trust me, right?

Michael: Yes.

Sonny: And I trust you, too. And I know this -- I'm sorry that I have -- that you have to be in the middle of this, all right? But this is very important. I want to -- I just want -- I want you and your brother here with me, because I want to make sure that you will always be safe. 

Sage: Dillon, this is really, really great. Thank you so much.

Dillon: Celebration ain't over yet.

[Sage laughs]

Dillon: Hey! It's not over.

Sage: Really? There's a part two?

Dillon: Yes, there is -- the academy awards are on ABC Sunday.

Sage: Finally, something I love about the movies.

Dillon: Um, so, my family has given me sole custody of the screening room that we have, and cook is going to make us an academy awards-themed feast. We've got 'Goodfellas' chicken fingers, 'English Patient' chips, and 'Cat On A Hot Tin' quesadilla or something.

Sage: And do we get to watch the pre-show, too?

Dillon: Baby, you haven't heard a red carpet commentary until you've heard mine.

Sage: I love watching the stars walk the red carpet, and not just for the fashion. It's like the nominees are always so excited, trying not to get their hopes up but secretly hoping they'll win. It's such a universal feeling. Everybody's been through it.

Dillon: Oh, yeah, yeah. Everybody who's been nominated for an academy award.

Sage: That's not what I meant and you know it.

Dillon: I know, but --

Sage: It's like -- like my birthday. I knew Uncle Lorenzo would forget. My father used to forget all the time, but then some years, he'd show up out of nowhere with some great present or he'd take me shopping and let me get anything I wanted. It was like being a nominee. I'd pretend like it doesn't matter, but underneath, it mattered a whole lot.

Dillon: Yeah, I know. Like my mom was never really big on birthdays. I don't think actually -- if I didn't have, like, babysitters or nannies or anything like that, I --

[sage laughs]

Dillon: Shut up. I -- I don't think I'd know about candles or cakes or anything, and you'd think that would make me care less about birthdays, but I don't know -- it made me care more. It made me care more. Birthdays are, like, really important to me, including yours, so -- so, for your birthday celebration, we are doing whatever your little heart desires, provided I can afford it. Um --

[sage laughs]

[phone rings]

Dillon: I should get that.

Sage: Go ahead.

Dillon: Hello?

Maxie: Dillon, it's Maxie.

Dillon: Hey. What's wrong?

Maxie: My dad's not doing so well. They didn't say that he was going to die, but they didn't say that he wasn't. Georgie really needs you right now.

Dillon: Uh -- I'll be right there. I'm sorry.

Sage: Bad news?

Dillon: Yeah. Um -- Georgie's dad is getting worse.

Sage: Oh, I understand. Maxie and Georgie really, really need you at a time like this.

Dillon: I know. Look, we're still on for Sunday, ok? We're going to eat popcorn and make fun of people and fast-forward and rewind and --

Sage: Dillon, Dillon, your head was out the door the second you hung up the phone.

Dillon: Ok.

Sage: Go, please. Really, thank you so much for this.

Dillon: I'll make it up to you. Ok?

Sage: It's cool.

Tracy: Maxie. Tracy Quartermaine. I was trapped in the hotel fire with your sister.

Maxie: I know who you are.

Tracy: I understand your father's taken a turn for the worse. I thought these would brighten his room.

Maxie: He can't have flowers. They carry infections.

Tracy: I'm so sorry, Maxie. Is there anything else I can do?

Georgie: You can stay the hell away from my family!

Tracy: Georgie, understandably you're distraught.

Georgie: I know exactly why you're here.

Tracy: To show some support and to be available when your own mother can't. I know how terrifying it is to sit at the bedside of somebody you love. My own father is very, very ill.

Maxie: Yeah, well, maybe he's getting what he deserves.

Georgie: Maxie --

Maxie: It's the truth. I was in the basement with Zander and I heard the super warn Mr. Quartermaine that the hotel electrical system wasn't safe. Mr. Quartermaine claimed that he couldn't afford it.

Tracy: My father hasn't been in his right mind.

Maxie: Yeah. Well, Zander and his father died because of Edward's mistake.

Georgie: And my father will be in pain for the rest of his life!

Tracy: Our hearts go out to all the victims of the fire.

Georgie: Only after the fact? Because you could get in trouble for what Mr. Quartermaine did to us.

Tracy: I'm so sorry about your father. If there's anything I can do --

Georgie: Well, you can stop pretending to care about anyone but yourself. Dillon warned me about you, that you are greedy and selfish, but now I see he was being nice. You're not even human -- you're a monster, and Maxie and I want nothing, nothing to do with you.

Sonny: The social worker's going to meet us here and take you to the judge, and then Jason and I will be waiting for you, ok?

Jason: It's not going to take long.

Michael: I don't want to do this.

Sonny: I know. I know it would be easier for you to run and hide, but you are braver than that. That's why you need to do this. When bad things happen, when difficult things happen, you need to face them. You need to stand up. Running and hiding only makes things worse in the end.

Michael: Will you still love me no matter what?

Sonny: You're my son. I will love you and be proud of you, always.

Carly: Michael?

Sonny: Go ahead.

Carly: Hey! Oh. You look so handsome.

Michael: Thank you. I'm here to see the judge. Is that why you're here?

Carly: Well, I am here just to tell you how much I love you and to bring you a present.

Michael: The new "Wizards and Magic"!

Carly: Yes, and you know what? I didn't even peek, so we can find out what happens together when we read it.

Michael: Well, what if I stay with daddy?

Carly: We can still read it together, Michael. Listen to me, honey. All you have to do today is answer the judge's questions honestly. And it doesn't matter who you choose because I will always love you, and you and Morgan will always be in my heart.

Woman: Judge Marland is ready to see Michael now.

Michael: Don't leave, ok? Stay here with daddy and Jason.

Carly: Ok, I'm not going anywhere. Ok?

Woman: Hi, Michael. I'm Jean. We're going to see Judge Marland now. He's looking forward to meeting you. It's ok.

Carly: Thank you for not interfering.

Sonny: Well, he's been through a lot. I didn't want him to see us fight.

Carly: You asked him to pick you?

Sonny: And I imagine you bribed him to pick you. How is that fair? What are we doing to our kids?

Elizabeth: Hey. See? I knew you'd be released.

Nikolas: Oh, I'm just out on bail.

Emily: Yeah, but it's the first step towards getting Nikolas exonerated, so --

Elizabeth: I'm really happy for you.

Nikolas: Thanks. See you later.

Elizabeth: Ok.

Nikolas: So glad to be out of that lockup.

Emily: Yeah, and you're not going back. We'll prove you're innocent ourselves if we have to.

Lucky: Have you eaten already?

Elizabeth: Lucky, what's going on?

Lucky: You know what? I'm hungry.

Elizabeth: Ok, when I asked you about the investigation at the courthouse today, you got all quiet. Now, what aren't you telling me?

Lucky: Elizabeth, I don't want to get in the middle of all this.

Elizabeth: In the middle of what? Is Ric still pursuing other suspects or not?

Sage: Tom! Why aren't you at the hospital?

Travis: I'm not sick.

Sage: When someone you love is going through a crisis, usually the person you care about the most stays with you. If your dad was sick, wouldn't you want your girlfriend there to support you?

Travis: I don't have a girlfriend.

Sage: So what do you call Georgie?

Dillon: Georgie?

Georgie: Oh, my god.

Dillon: It's ok. It's ok. I'm here.

Georgie: I'm so glad that you're here.

Dillon: I know, I know. Maxie said that you might need me, so --

Georgie: My dad is really bad, Dillon, and I don't know if he's going to make it and I don't know what I'm going to do if he dies. I mean, sometimes I feel like he's the only person that loves us. My real dad never calls me, my mom's in Texas. I mean, I know this is going to sound really selfish, but I cannot lose Mac, too.

Dillon: You're not. Georgie, you are not going to lose him.

Georgie: I'm so scared, Dillon. I mean, I feel like I'm just going crazy and then -- and then to make it worse, your mom showed up and just --

Dillon: Wait. My mom talked to you?

Georgie: Yeah, she gave me some flowers, offering her sympathy.

Dillon: Well, I hope you told her to go to hell.

Georgie: Yeah, pretty much.

Dillon: You know, I -- I hate the fact that my family uses the Quartermaine name to get away with whatever they want with no consequences. My grandfather didn't deserve --

Georgie: Maxie thinks that the fire is Edward's fault.

Dillon: It's time that I tell you the truth.

Travis: Well, the thing is, I mean, sure Georgie's my girlfriend, but she's like so much more.

Sage: "More" how?

Travis: Like the word "girlfriend" doesn't even begin to describe what she means to me. I mean, she's cool and really awesome.

Sage: "Really awesome," huh?

Travis: And "cool."

Sage: So -- yeah, well, if Georgie's your whole world, why aren't you with her right now?

Travis: Because I'm talking to you. I better get going to the hospital.

Sage: Whoa, whoa, whoa. She broke up with you, didn't she?

Travis: What?

Sage: That's why Maxie called Dillon to come to the hospital. She broke up with you and now he's the only person she has left to rely on.

Travis: Hey, if anybody was doing the dumping, it would've been me.

Sage: So you're saying you dumped Georgie?

Travis: No! I mean, we're still together, but --

Sage: When's Georgie's birthday? Where does she live?

Travis: I'm not dating Georgie at all! I mean, she wanted to make Dillon jealous. I mean, she thinks he's like the next Mark Messier or something. She just wanted me to pretend to be her boyfriend.

Sage: So is your name really Tom or is that something she just made you say to keep a lie going?

Travis: No, it's Travis and I hate it when you guys call me Tom.

Nikolas: Thanks for your help today, Lucky.

Lucky: Listen, I haven't said anything to Elizabeth, but Ric -- he's just going through the motions of looking at other suspects, all right? He wants you as Zander's killer.

Nikolas: Yeah, I figured as much.

Lucky: Well, you know what? It doesn't matter because I'm going to keep working until I find the real killer.

Elizabeth: So how are you doing with all this, Em?

Emily: I am trying to be strong for Nikolas, but I'm worried. You know, there's a lot of evidence against him.

Elizabeth: Well, Ric said that Nikolas' lawyer is really good and that she'll make a strong defense.

Emily: But it might not be enough. Nikolas' freedom is in Ric's hands.

Courtney: Hey. So has Michael already gone in to see the judge?

Jason: Yeah, just a few minutes ago. Carly showed up and Michael was happy to see her.

Courtney: Ok, look, I'm the one who told Carly what time Michael's meeting was. I thought that she should have a chance to talk with him first. I'm guessing it went ok now. I mean, Sonny and Carly aren't screaming at each other.

Jason: I know, but it's still hard on Michael.

Courtney: I know. I just wish I could help.

Jason: Look, I need to know if Faith Rosco approaches you.

Courtney: Why? I mean, what does Faith have to do with any of this?

Jason: Alcazar is hoping that Faith starts a war with Sonny. Ok, there can't be any violence during this custody hearing. The only way to protect Sonny's family is to keep the peace.

Faith: You're late.

Man: There was more trouble on the docks.

Faith: Courtney Morgan owns the waterfront and I just thought of a way to force her to cooperate.

Carly: I hate seeing Michael this way.

Sonny: I don't want that, either.

Carly: It didn't have to be this way if you had just listened to reason.

Sonny: Like -- like you?

Carly: I offered you joint custody.

Sonny: What do -- Carly, what did you expect me to do? Allow my kids to live with alcazar in his home?

Carly: You threw me out of our home. What was I supposed to do?

Sonny: Well, you could've gotten your own place. You could've stayed with Bobbie. I'd have bought you a house.

Carly: Yeah, those are your solutions. They are not mine.

Sonny: I got a solution. I got a solution. You leave Alcazar, I will share custody.

Carly: You know that I want my children more than anything --

Sonny: Ok, then it's settled. We'll go talk to the judge, we'll tell him that he doesn't have to put Michael through this.

Judge Marland: It says here you're on a hockey team. Do you like sports?

Michael: I thought you were supposed to ask me who I wanted to live with -- my mom or my dad.

Judge Marland: Well, I want to get to know you a little before we make any decisions.

Michael: I want to live with them both.

Judge Marland: Unfortunately, that isn't an option, so I need you to choose. Where would you be happiest, Michael -- with your mother or your father?

Carly: I would do almost anything to end this custody fight, but I cannot trust you anymore, Sonny, and what you're offering me is not real. It is just the first concession in what will become a long string of demands. You threw me out and you have no control over my life anymore.

Sonny: Ok, so you don't want to do it. That's a big mistake.

Carly: No, I'm dealing in reality here.

Sonny: All right.

Carly: I'm going to move in someday with another man. And maybe it's going to be Lorenzo, maybe it's going to be someone else, and you are going to find something to object to. This isn't about the children at all. This is about you wanting to have power over me.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Travis: You're going to go tell Dillon the truth and Georgie's going to hate me forever.

Dillon: I'm not going to lie for you anymore.

Maxie: Mac never woke up the entire time I was with him.

Georgie: It's ok, Maxie.

Sonny: When he comes through that door, he's going to come straight to me.

Carly: What did you tell the judge?
