Emily: Zander was relentless. I mean, he kept pushing Nikolas, trying to provoke him. Zander wanted me to --
Lucky: Listen, I don't care what this letter says, Em. We both know that Nikolas didn't kill Zander.
Ric: Ok, that letter is evidence in a murder case. You need to hand it over now.
Zander's voice: "Nikolas -- I'm sure you know by now that Iíll never stop loving Emily. I've made plans to run away with her to Canada tonight. If you're reading this, it means Iíve succeeded. Emily is mine again and you'll never find us."
Nikolas: Hi. Thanks for coming. I realize it's out of the way.
Jen: Not at all. Not at all. Ok, listen, I think I have grounds to have your trial date delayed.
Nikolas: Donít. I want to be tried as soon as possible.
Faith: This is going to be a very lucrative relationship, buttercup. See, I get to run my shipments through your territory whenever and wherever I want, and you don't ask any questions. Oh, and you keep your mouth shut with Sonny, Jason, and the cops and play along the way you did today, and we're all going to be so happy.
Courtney: And if I don't?
Faith: Well, see, that would be a problem because then I would have to hurt you, and then Sonny would retaliate against me and, oops, that would blow his shot at custody of the brats.
Courtney: You know what?
Courtney: Don't call my nephews "brats"! And don't even mention them again, ok?
Faith: Sorry, my mistake.
Courtney: I still own this company and I'm not going to be bullied by you or any --
Faith: (shooting door) Sorry, did I get gunpowder in your hair?
Courtney: You're lethal -- ok, I get it. Now get out of my office.
Faith: Yeah. That was your final warning. Either I get access to the waterfront, or next time, I don't miss.
Lorenzo: Does your nanny know you're out here by yourself?
Michael: You're not listening. Let my mommy come home. I want her and my dad to be together again.
Lorenzo: First, you need to come with me.
Walker: Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help you God?
Alexis: Are you certain that Jason is going to support your bid for sole custody?
Carly: He knows what's at stake.
[Judge pounds gavel]
Judge: Ms. Davis?
Alexis: I'm sorry, your honor. Mr. Morgan, you've been a close friend of Carly Corinthos for many years, correct?
Alexis: After Carly gave birth to her first son, she became ill and was unable to take care of Michael, so you took responsibility of Michael. Isn't that true?
Jason: Yes, I did.
Alexis: And then after she recovered, you confidently returned Michael to his mother. Have you ever doubted Carlyís ability to care for her children?
Alexis: So in your opinion, Carly is a good mother who deserves to raise her children?
Jason: Yes maíam
Audrey: It's certainly no secret that Iím looking forward to being a great-grandmother, even though it does sound like a little old woman in a rocking chair with a white cap on her head. Oh, I am going to love having a precious little baby to spoil.
Audrey: You know, I can't wait -- what is it, darling? Hey, Elizabeth? Huh? Well, you have your address book. Is there something else you left here?
Elizabeth: No. No, gram.
Elizabeth: I'm just -- I'm just distracted right now.
Audrey: Oh, well, for heaven's sake, don't pay attention to me. I mean, you have months to decide on the name for the baby.
Elizabeth: Well, I'll tell you, if it is a girl, one of her names will be Audrey, and I just pray I can give her as much love and support as you've given me.
Audrey: Oh, Elizabeth, you'll be wonderful. I'm sure of it.
Elizabeth: I'm so afraid to make mistakes.
Audrey: Well, no parent is perfect, but once you look into your baby's eyes, you'll always want to do what's best for him or her. Hmm?
Elizabeth: You're right. And I better start now.
Audrey: Yeah. Uh-huh.
Elizabeth: Thanks, gram.
Emily: If you want to search me, you'll have to get a subpoena.
Ric: Emily, I overheard what you just said to Lucky. If you're holding material --
Emily: Oh, I guess that's a no on the subpoena, so I have somewhere to be.
Ric: Emily, don't do this -- go after her right now.
Lucky: Well, you must've misunderstood. Emily and I were going over the details for her wedding. All I saw her walk away with was a to-do list.
Ric: I see. You know, it's not really a good career move for a cop to lie to the D.A. You know, you're covering for your brother again.
Lucky: Well, I know my brother's innocent.
Ric: That document is evidence in a murder case! Now, I am ordering you to go after her and get it, unless you'd like for me to take your badge!
Lucky: Go ahead, throw me off the force. It's not going to stop me from investigating Zanderís murder.
Ric: You can't be objective about this case.
Lucky: Well, neither can you. All you've been trying to do is railroad my brother. I'm going to find out why.
Michael: He said never to go anywhere with you again.
Lorenzo: Well, it's true your father and I don't get along, but I am very good friends with your mother. I know she wouldn't want you to be out here alone, so let me take you home.
Michael: I can go by myself.
Lorenzo: Ok. Before you go, let me explain something. I would never hurt your mother. If you think about it, who's the one that yells at your mom and makes her cry? It isn't me.
Michael: Sometimes adults fight.
Lorenzo: Not when they're happy. I want your mom to be happy. I want her to feel like she's protected. I want to make her smile. I know she won't feel that way if you and Morgan aren't safe, so let's go.
Michael: Are you sure you won't try and hurt mommy?
Lorenzo: I promise. What do you say we go find Leticia, or maybe your grandma Bobbieís at the hospital? Let's go.
Courtney: Get away from my nephew.
Alexis: Clearly, Mr. Morgan, you're in an excellent position to comment on Carlyís fitness as a parent because you have been through and in so many circumstances with her.
Sonny: Shut him down now. Get him off the stand.
Justus: There's nothing I can do until she's finished questioning him.
Jason: That's right, that's right.
Alexis: Now, we've already established that you consider Carly to be a very good mother. Do you think you could elaborate on that?
Jason: Uh -- I mean, Carly loves Michael and Morgan.
Alexis: I know. Is she attentive? Is she nurturing? Is she affectionate?
Jason: Yeah, yeah, she's all those things.
Alexis: I want you to be more specific. For instance, last winter, Carly was pregnant and Michael was playing on a frozen lake and the ice broke, would you please tell the court what happened?
Jason: Yeah, before Michael could fall into the lake, Carly crawled out onto the ice and pulled him to safety, and the ice broke under Carly. The water was freezing, she almost died trying to rescue him. And then they wanted to give her some kind of blood pressure medicine to -- to lower her blood pressure, but she refused because it would've put her baby at risk.
Alexis: Sounds like a devoted parent.
Jason: She would do anything to protect her kids.
Alexis: Does Carly have a job?
Jason: No, not right now, she doesnít.
Alexis: So she's a stay-at-home mom. So what about the children's father? Would you say that his life is dangerous?
Justus: Objection, your honor. Clearly leading the witness.
Alexis: I'll rephrase the question, your honor. To the best of your knowledge, Mr. Morgan, can you tell me how many times Mr. Corinthos has been the target of gunfire?
Jason: I don't know.
Alexis: Police records indicate that there are 12 documented incidences where Mr. Corinthos was the target of gunfire. To the best of your knowledge, Mr. Morgan, can you tell the court how many times Mr. Corinthos has been the victim of a bomb threat?
Alexis: Have you ever been shot at or threatened as a result of working for Mr. Corinthos?
Alexis: Has Michael and Morgan ever been threatened or have their lives been threatened as a result of --
Jason: Sonny would do anything to protect his kids, just like Carly would.
Alexis: That's not the question that I asked you, Mr. Morgan. The question is, have Mr. Corinthos' children ever been put in danger simply because he is their father?
Alexis: Thank you. No more questions.
Nikolas: I don't want to go through the pretrial motions, ok? Ric -- he's convinced that Iím guilty of this murder. He won't let anything stop the trial, so I'd rather just take my chances with a jury.
Jen: Ok, you're an intelligent man, Mr. Cassadine so Iím sure you realize that you're sabotaging your own case by agreeing to go to trial before Iíve had the chance to fully prepare.
Jen: All I want to know is, who exactly are you protecting?
Emily: Hi. Excuse me --
Emily: Jen, I need to speak to you in private?
Nikolas: Ok, Jen and I are finished. You'll proceed as we discussed?
Jen: Yeah. I will call you as soon as I know anything.
Nikolas: Thank you.
Nikolas: What -- what's wrong?
Emily: Ok, Ric is right behind me and he'll bring the police.
Nikolas: Why would Ric be after you?
Emily: Because of this. It's a letter from Zander accusing you of wanting him dead. I showed it to Lucky, and Ric overheard. It gives him more ammunition against you. We have to leave town before he can have your bail revoked.
Nikolas: I got a letter from Zander, too.
Nikolas: He makes it sound like he was going to kidnap you.
Nikolas: A prosecutor could convince a jury that you tried to kill Zander when he forced you to leave the country.
Emily: You know, all this proves is how desperate and angry Zander was at the end. I mean, he either convinced himself that I would leave town with him, or he wrote this letter to deliberately provoke you.
Nikolas: I know. It's like he was covering all his angles, you know, wanting us to question each other.
Emily: I know. Well, you know what? We just -- we can figure this out on the road. Right now we need to go.
Elizabeth: You don't have to leave. I can explain everything that's happening.
Felicia: Easy, Mac. Easy, easy. It's ok. I'm still here, and the girls are fine, and so is my grandmother. And the nurse that I hired said that she's holding her own. No, no, no. Stop. The doctors don't want you to talk just yet. Why don't you just save your strength and concentrate on getting better so the two of us can have a good old-fashioned screaming match. I can't believe everything that happened while I was gone, or why you and the girls didn't call and tell me. Maxie -- and that guy Kyle? And her overdose? And Georgie, she's in love with Dillon. I guess they're just growing up, aren't they? I'm sorry. I know that you didn't want to burden me while my grandmother was sick, and I know how hard that it was for you to take care of them, and I can't ever repay you for that. And as frustrated as I feel right now, I know you did what you thought was the right thing to do at the time. But I'm here now, and I'm going to take care of the family. So you need to focus on getting better for the girls and for me.
Sage: Are those tickets actually for something other than the local movie theater?
Dillon: Uh -- yeah, but --
Sage: "La Boheme"? I didn't think you'd be into opera. To tell you the truth, Iím not crazy about the ladies in helmets with wings, but all the elegance is kind of nice.
Dillon: Um -- it's -- well -- yeah, it's the Baz Luhrmann production.
Sage: I thought some ancient Italian guy wrote it.
Dillon: Uh-huh. Puccini's the original composer. Baz Luhrmann's a movie director. He did "Romeo and Juliet" and "Moulin Rouge"?
Sage: Oh, loved them both. How cool is it that he's doing a show and you got tickets? I've been to Teatro Alla Scala in Milan. It was magnificent. I'm sure this theater couldn't live up, but Iíll still have to buy something new to wear --
Dillon: Sage -- um -- I'm sorry, the tickets aren't for you. They're for me and Georgie.
Courtney: Michael, what are you doing out here alone?
Michael: I'm not alone. He said he's a friend of mommy's.
Lorenzo: Your aunt will take you home now, Michael. I'll see you soon.
Courtney: Why aren't you with Leticia?
Michael: I lied and took off.
Courtney: Michael, that is so unfair to Leticia and everybody who loves you. You are much too young to run off by yourself; you know that.
Michael: I wanted that man to leave mommy alone so she could come home.
Courtney: I wish it were that simple, sweetheart, but your mom and dad need to work things out for themselves, just like Jason and I have been telling you. And the only way that you can help is to stay where you're supposed to and mind Leticia. That way no matter what else happens, your mom and dad know that you and Morgan are safe.
Michael: Why can't Mommy and Daddy just love each other again?
Courtney: I wish I knew. Come here, sweetie.
Justus: Mr. Morgan, you're Sonny's best friend, his business partner. Is that correct?
Jason: That's correct.
Justus: You're also his brother-in-law, his family, right?
Jason: Yes, I am.
Justus: So it's safe to say that you have the utmost respect for Mr. Corinthos; you hold him in the highest of esteem.
Jason: Absolutely, I do.
Justus: Ms. Davis spoke earlier about a time shortly after Michael was born when Carly fell ill and was unable to take care of Michael, when the truth is she didn't want to.
Alexis: Objection, your honor. My client was suffering from severe postpartum depression, which is a clinically diagnosed condition.
Alexis: Thank you.
Justus: Allow me to clarify, your honor. Carly became depressed shortly after Michael was born. During this period, you were the sole caregiver, and was listed as the boy's legal father. Is that correct?
Jason: Yes, that's correct.
Justus: In fact, you even named Michael after Mr. Corinthos. Isn't that true?
Jason: Yeah, that's true.
Justus: And when you lost custody and resolved to leave the country for an extended period of time, with whom did you leave Michael in the care of?
Justus: And once you returned and saw that Sonny and Carly were together, did you attempt to re-establish your position as the boy's father?
Jason: No, I didn't.
Justus: Why not? You still loved the boy.
Jason: Very much so, yes, I did.
Justus: Then why not try to reclaim your place as the boy's father?
Jason: Because Sonny was Michaelís father by then.
Justus: So you didn't want to confuse the boy?
Jason: Sonny's the best man I know. If I could choose my father, I would choose him. Because I knew he would help Michael the same way that he helped me. That's why I wanted Sonny to be Michaelís dad. I knew he'd be good at it.
Justus: This hearing is to determine who Michael and Morgan should spend the rest of their young lives with. You've gone through a great personal sacrifice to allow Mr. Corinthos to raise Michael. Do you feel he's fulfilled his obligations as the boy's father?
Justus: Do you think Michael and Morgan should remain in the custody of Sonny Corinthos?
Jason: Sonny is Michaelís true father, but I think the boys need their mother. I think Michael and Morgan need to be with both their parents.
Dillon: Look, Georgie made me watch "Moulin Rouge," like, 50 times, ok?
Sage: I thought this was "La Boheme."
Dillon: Yeah, I know, but it's a similar story. I mean, two starving artists fall in love against all odds and they're from separate worlds and it has a tragic ending. It's basically the same --
Sage: Sounds familiar.
Dillon: Georgie saw "Rent" a few years back. She loved it. That's loosely based on the opera, too.
Sage: So she's into the story, I get it. But is Georgie really going to be up for a musical right now? Her dad's still in the hospital.
Dillon: Sage, she needs the break. I mean, I'm trying to, you know, get her mind off of her problems.
Sage: But maybe Georgie would rather spend some time with her family. Her mom just got back.
Dillon: It's a trip to Manhattan to see an opera. It's not a voyage to the moon. I'm sure she can spare a few hours. Besides, seeing the show will probably help her, you know, lose herself for the first time in, like, forever.
Sage: But Georgie has a sister and her mom and you all taking care of her. I guess that's what you call a support system.
Dillon: I'm not trying to be insensitive, ok? We're friends now and I think that's great; I really do. But Georgie and I, you know, we have a --
Sage: Have history, I know. But it sounds like you want Georgie to be your future, too.
Dillon: I don't expect it to happen overnight.
Sage: So Iím not imagining this? You really do want Georgie back?
Dillon: Yeah. I'm trying to get her to start all over with me. Yes, I want her to be my girlfriend again. I'm still in love with her.
Felicia: Mac did his best to take care of you girls, and you didn't make it easy for him.
Maxie: It was a lot more complicated than that, mom.
Felicia: I know, and I should've been there, and I'm sorry that I wasnít. But now's not the time for reprimands. Mac loves you both very much and I'm sure he wouldn't want you waiting around in this hospital missing school. The best thing you can do right now is just to go on with your lives.
Georgie: You want us to act like dad's not hurt?
Felicia: No, I want you to be happy. You've had a really crummy year, and I'm here to take care of Mac now. What do you say? Will you do this for your mom and your dad? Hmm?
Maxie: I guess I could go pick up my homework from Susan.
Felicia: I think that's a really good idea. Why don't we have dinner tonight. You want to?
Felicia: Ok. Well, I'll call you later. Go study.
Felicia: Ok, bye, sweetie. I love you.
Maxie: I love you, too.
Felicia: I love you.
Georgie: I love you, mom.
Audrey: Ah, Felicia. Hello.
Audrey: I'm sorry to bother you.
Felicia: Oh, you could never be a bother to me.
Audrey: Well, I really hate to bring this up, but do you know if Mac has any additional insurance?
Felicia: Uh -- just what the job provides.
Audrey: Ah. Well, of course, the last thing he needs to worry about right now is money. I tried to explain that to the business office. Oh -- just forget I ever said anything about it.
Felicia: No, wait. Wait, wait, Audrey. If -- you know, I want Mac to be taken care of.
Audrey: Oh, sure.
Felicia: If the insurance doesn't pay for it, then Iíll pay for it myself.
Audrey: Don't you worry. I'll work something out, hmm?
Felicia: Oh, God.
Tracy: Health care in this country's a scandal.
Felicia: Tracy Quartermaine.
Tracy: It's nice to see you back, Felicia.
Felicia: My family needed me, so Iím here.
Tracy: Funny you should mention that. We are all family in Port Charles, and my family would like to offer their support.
Tracy: Mac was hurt protecting the interests of this city, and we want to make sure he gets the care he needs.
Felicia: I'm sure you do. I don't want your blood money.
Elizabeth: I should've ended this a long time ago.
Emily: Elizabeth, look, we -- we don't have that much time.
Nikolas: Wait -- I want to hear this. You know who killed Zander, don't you?
Nikolas: It was Ric.
Elizabeth: No. No, he's completely innocent.
Emily: Nikolas, we really can figure this out on the --
Ric: I'm sorry, Iím not letting any of you leave.
Elizabeth: Honey, please, just leave Nikolas alone.
Ric: No, I'm not persecuting Nikolas or anybody else, for that matter. I just want to clear this up for good. Zander is manipulating all of us. I know Emily got a letter from him implicating Nikolas. I'm betting that all four of us received letters from Zander in this past week. Look, he either thought that he was going to kill himself or he was going to be killed and he was blaming all of us for it.
Emily: Then you're admitting Nikolas is innocent?
Ric: All I'm saying is that Zander is manipulating us from the grave, but if you just let me do my job then I can handle it.
Nikolas: Do your job? By that, you mean prosecute me? Let me guess -- you'll throw the case. Why should I trust you, Ric?
Emily: You've already railroaded Nikolas once this year.
Ric: Just give me time to investigate; that's all Iím asking. If that's not an option, then fine, I will drop the charges.
Elizabeth: Ok, just stop -- stop, ok? I don't want to lie anymore. The only one who should have to pay for Zanderís death is me. Because I'm the one who killed him.
Alexis: Your honor, I'd like the opportunity to redirect.
Judge: This is a family court, Ms. Davis. We'll follow procedure. Mr. Ward, do you have anything further for the witness?
Justus: No further questions, your honor.
Judge: I'm calling a brief recess. We'll reconvene in half an hour.
Carly: How could you do it, Jason? You knew that I needed you and --
Jason: I told the truth, Carly.
Carly: Do you understand what I have to do now?
Jason: Yes, you need to tell the judge that you and Sonny both love the kids, and you both deserve to be with them.
Carly: Well, Sonny doesn't want to share, and now you have backed me into a corner, and I have got to tell the court about the breakdowns.
Jason: Would you stop thinking about yourself for once, Carly, and think about Michael? I didn't give him up because I wanted to. It was like tearing my own heart out. But it was what he needed. And what Michael needs now is for his parents to make peace, even if you risk losing custody.
Carly: I will not give up my kids!
Jason: Then you are going to lose them anyway. Because if you make Sonny look like an unfit parent, he's going to make you look like an unfit parent, and the judge is not going to have a choice. He'll put those boys in foster care.
Carly: That is the chance that you took, Jason, when you decided to turn on me! I never thought that I would have to hurt Sonny, but I tell you, I never, ever thought that you would have failed me!
Jason: This is --
Dillon: Thanks for coming. So, double soy latte, caramel syrup with a cinnamon stick?
Dillon: She'll have what I thought she'd have. Make it two, please?
Georgie: You already told the waitress my order?
Dillon: Yeah, I was trying to impress you. It's a setup. So, relax, unwind. First thing I'm going to ask, though, how's your dad?
Georgie: A little better. I think my mom being here helps.
Dillon: Good. Oh, thank you.
Georgie: This feels weird.
Georgie: Being here. It feels -- feels normal. Having you and me sitting here with our lattes and you leaning across the table like you do, it feels --
Georgie: It feels --
Dillon: Right. Feels right.
Georgie: Yeah. Like the old me.
Dillon: The "me" that I fell in love with after she kissed me without introducing herself.
Georgie: Dillon --
Dillon: Listen, wait. It has been a long time for me since I felt like I was sure about anything, but I know this. You and me right here like we are now -- it's the only kind of normal I ever wanted. I have something I want to ask you.
Sage: Took you long enough.
Travis: What? You want to hire me to play your boyfriend, too?
Sage: Ha. Nice delusion. Did you get hit too hard in the head with a basketball or something?
Travis: I play hockey.
Sage: Whatever. I called you because Iím wondering if you're still looking to hook up with Georgie. You could be with her for real if you do exactly as I say.
Travis: Talk to me.
Sage: Are you into musical theater?
Travis: Hmm -- no.
Sage: Well, start appreciating it, like yesterday.
Travis: I wouldn't be into show tunes if you put a gun to my head.
Sage: Fight me on this, and I just might.
Sonny: You understand what you've done?
Jason: Sonny, I -- I told you if you and Carly made me choose, I'm going to have to do what's right for the kids.
Sonny: Oh. So you don't mind the kids being with Alcazar? I will not let my kids experience what I went through with Deke.
Jason: Carly's not going to let anyone hurt your kids.
Sonny: Listen to yourself. You're taking her side now.
Jason: No, I'm not. Carly blackmailed me!
Sonny: What do you mean?
Jason: She said if I didn't say the kids belong with her, she's going to tell the court about your breakdown.
Sonny: Well, I didn't know that. When did she tell you this? You know what? You just -- you just gave her the opening to win this case.
Carly: You put me on the stand. I will talk about the breakdowns.
Elizabeth: Zander was acting all crazy and I got scared, and when I hit him, it was -- it was just like a reflex action, you know?
Ric: You were defending yourself.
Elizabeth: He went down, but I thought he was still breathing. I guess I -- I should've checked. I didn't know what to do. I -- he -- and then that fire started and all I could think about was him lying there and --
Nikolas: Yeah. And that's how I felt.
Elizabeth: I'm so sorry, Nikolas, and I'm really -- I'm really sorry. If Iíd just come forward from the beginning --
Ric: You're pregnant. You were protecting your child.
Emily: No, it doesn't make it ok that you tried to frame Nikolas.
Ric: Look, for all I knew at the time, Nikolas did kill Zander. Elizabeth can't deal with the stress of a trial. Look, if you just give me some more time, I can make sure that nobody has to pay for this.
Elizabeth: No. Ok, I am responsible for Zanderís death. I will suffer the consequences.
Ric: Why should you be punished, all right? You didn't intend to kill Zander.
Elizabeth: I need to turn myself in.
Ric: All right, there's a better solution. You just have got to trust me.
Nikolas: That's the problem, Ric -- we donít.
Georgie: You didn't have to buy me another one.
Dillon: Well, it was either that, or the only other option was to hook you up to the espresso machine and inject coffee into you intravenously.
Georgie: I like this better. Um, so, you wanted to ask me something?
Dillon: Oh -- uh -- ok. Do you remember our all-day movie marathons?
Georgie: Which one?
Dillon: Musicals a Go-Go.
Georgie: Of course! We watched "Moulin Rouge," like, four times. You memorized half the dialogue, and you could even impersonate Ewan McGregorís accent.
Dillon: Yes, well, it's funny you say that because I was on the internet the other --
Travis: Georgie? Georgie? I have to ask you something.
Georgie: Um -- Tom, hey.
Travis: I really have to ask you something.
Georgie: Could you just give us just one minute?
Dillon: Yeah, or, like, forever would be nice, too.
Travis: I hope you don't think it's lame or anything, but I was wondering if you'd want to go see "La Boheme" with me.
Georgie: Are -- are you serious?
Travis: Yeah. I mean, I don't want you to think Iím a loser just because I'm into musical theater.
Georgie: Are we talking about Baz Luhrmannís production?
Travis: That director guy, yeah.
Dillon: Oh, of course it is.
Georgie: Dillon and I were just talking about how much I love "Moulin Rouge," and -- and then you came in with the tickets.
Travis: So you're into it? I mean, you won't be bored or anything?
Georgie: Oh, my God, this is the best surprise ever, especially how mean I was to you at the hospital.
Travis: Oh, it's ok. I mean, you were worried about your dad, and I said the wrong thing.
Georgie: I just see now that you were trying to help.
Travis: Well, maybe we can forget about that, you know, start over.
Georgie: Of course. I -- I didn't even know you were into this kind of music.
Travis: Oh, my mom listened to it on the weekends. I guess I gained an appreciation.
Dillon: You mean you cultivated one?
Dillon: You cultivated an -- ah, never mind. Never mind.
Georgie: It's so weird. I wanted to see this so bad. It's like serendipity or something.
Dillon: No, I've got another word for it.
Courtney: No, no, you -- you aren't going anywhere near that hearing.
Lorenzo: I was subpoenaed by Sonny's attorney.
Courtney: Hmm. Well, that explains the haircut and the tie. So, are you going to try to convince the judge that you're not a kidnapper, and that you haven't trashed Carlyís life?
Lorenzo: Look, I have my share of faults, but I'm not a violent misogynist like your brother who's trying to keep his own children away from their mother. He won't succeed.
Alexis: Why the sudden change of heart?
Carly: I thought that Jason and Courtney would side with me. They didn't, so now I need to figure out a better way to prove that I am a better parent.
Alexis: So you're going to testify that he had a nervous breakdown? You're going to talk about how destructive and dangerous his lifestyle is?
Carly: Listen, I cannot protect Sonny anymore. All that matters is keeping my children.
Jason: Carly's desperate. She's going to tell everything -- how you throw things, how you yell, how you lose your mind. Sonny, the only way to stop is to agree to joint custody. Look, I know her. Carly doesn't have to do this. Just give her a way out.
Georgie: I'm sorry. Tom had me distracted. What did you want to tell me?
Dillon: No, it's nothing. It can wait till later. Um -- you go to the opera, and I hope you have a great time. You deserve it. Hi.
Sage: What are you doing? What are you doing? I wanted a mochaccino!
Dillon: Did you get good seats, because mine were 10th-row orchestra.
Sage: What are you talking about?
Dillon: Tom just asked Georgie to "La Boheme."
Sage: The same show you were going to take her to?
Dillon: Yeah. Imagine that.
Sage: Oh, I'm so sorry, Dillon.
Dillon: Don't do that. Don't do that. Every time that I think that we're friends again, you do something to make me look incredibly stupid by pulling a stunt like this.
Sage: You think I told Tom to buy those tickets?
Dillon: Oh, I know you did.
Sage: Tom's been Georgieís boyfriend for a while. They talk all the time. I'm sure you're not the only one she's told she wanted to see that show.
Dillon: Tom isn't interested in an opera. The only seats he cares about are for the Islanders vs. Rangers game.
Sage: I'm sorry he ruined your surprise, but at least Georgieís still happy. That's what you really wanted, right?
Dillon: Oh, God, you're doing it again. You're doing it again.
Sage: What, trying to make you feel better?
Dillon: No, lying! See, this is your M.O., Sage. You act like we're friends, and then you do something really horrible, and then you try to make up for it by acting all nice.
Sage: Or maybe you're just blaming me because you want Georgie back, and she chose Tom again.
Dillon: She didn't choose anybody. I didn't even get the opportunity to ask her. You swear to me that you didn't put Tom up to this?
Sage: Of course. You're being paranoid, and I might even forgive you -- eventually -- because I understand that you're totally unreasonable on the subject of Georgie. And that's never going to change until you face reality and let go.
Nikolas: You've never done anything altruistic in your life, Ric. You expect us to believe that you'll come up with a solution that exonerates all of us?
Ric: Look, I didn't have a choice, Nikolas. I'll do anything to protect Elizabeth.
Emily: Right, including frame Nikolas.
Nikolas: Well, what are your options, though? Tell me. If you drop the case against me, people will suspect that you're covering for someone.
Emily: You know, maybe Elizabeth should confess. We can all testify to how out of control Zander was at the end. I'm sure she can plead --
Ric: Wait, wait, wait --
Ric: Where -- where did Elizabeth go?
Emily: I think she went down the hallway.
Ric: She's going to try and confess.
Elizabeth: Oh --
Walker: Please raise your right hand, place your left hand on the bible.
Sonny: Don't object to Carlyís testimony.
Justus: Why? What's going on?
Sonny: Let her say what she needs to say and make her look like a liar.
Justus: Excuse me?
Sonny: I don't -- look, I don't care if you have to get her mad, you have to make her cry. Whatever you need to do, you got to convince the judge and everybody in this courtroom that what she's about to say is a lie.
Alexis: Mrs. Corinthos, how many years have you known Mr. Corinthos?
Alexis: That's a good amount of time. You must know him very well.
Carly: I've never been closer to anyone.
Alexis: To the best of your knowledge, has your husband ever shown signs of emotional instability? Have you ever seen him lose control? Has he ever been physically violent in front of you?
Justus: I object, your honor. My client has no record of violence against his family.
Sonny: Sit down. Sit down.
Alexis: No documented record, your honor, but Mrs. Corinthos is his wife. She is clearly aware of his behavior.
Judge: I'll allow it. Answer the question, Mrs. Corinthos.
Carly: Look, I just want to be very, very clear --
Alexis: Then allow me to be very specific. Isn't it true that your husband has a history of severe nervous breakdowns?
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Tracy: I guess it's our turn to get even.
Ned: And grandfather's turn to pay.
Alexis: I realize that this is very difficult testimony for you.
Judge: Answer the question, Mrs. Corinthos.
Ric: I'm going to go stop Elizabeth.
