Sonny: How are you feeling?
Sam: A lot better, I think, and thanks.
Sonny: Yeah? You don't look good.
Sam: I just -- I needed a good night's sleep. Go have breakfast with Michael.
Sonny: You'll be safe here while I'm gone?
Sam: Yeah. I'm not worried.
Sam: I'm ok.
Sonny: Whoa, whoa, whoa. You know what? You can't stay here by yourself.
Nikolas: For the most beautiful woman in the entire world.
Emily: No! No!
Nikolas: Em, wake up. You're having a nightmare. What's wrong? It's ok. It's ok. It's just a dream. I'm right here. It's just a dream. Its ok, it's ok. Shh.
Faith: Good morning. A little coffee to start your day? Me, too. It sure beats getting tossed off a balcony railing. What is it like to know that you can't touch me, thanks to the one and only Luke Spencer?
Luke: Don't hold back on my account, Jason. She's all yours.
Carly: Hey. What are you doing wearing your suit?
Michael: Daddy always wears a suit.
Carly: That's true, but daddy is a grownup and you are a little boy. You should be running around in some comfortable clothes.
Michael: I want him to be proud of me.
Carly: Your daddy is always proud of you.
Michael: And he always wears a suit.
Carly: You are right. Well, you wear whatever you want, and you look very handsome. Your daddy's going to be here very soon, too, so -- what -- oh. Hi.
Carly: Sonny, hey. It's -- it's me. Listen, will you do me a favor and just make sure to tell Michael how handsome he looks when you get here?
Sonny: Listen, Carly, I can't make it for breakfast.
Sonny: Can you please tell Michael that I'm sorry and that I'll make it up to him?
Carly: Yeah. What happened?
Sonny: Sam -- she just about fainted in my arms.
Carly: Right, ok. Well, I'll explain that to him.
Emily: I saw Zander in the park.
Nikolas: In your dream?
Emily: No, yesterday, I really saw him.
Nikolas: Emily, Zanderís dead.
Emily: He was -- he was watching me and --- you were gone for a second.
Nikolas: Well, why didn't you say anything?
Emily: I don't know. I just -- I didn't -- I didn't want it to be true.
Nikolas: Honey, it isnít. It isnít.
Emily: In my dream -- in my dream, he shot you.
Nikolas: Emily. Emily, look, it was a dream, ok? It's not supposed to make sense.
Emily: He wanted revenge because I broke his heart, and he -- he shot you to break mine.
Nikolas: It wasn't -- it wasn't real.
Emily: I know. I think I'm being -- I think I'm being haunted, you know. Zander would be alive if we were still married and that --
Nikolas: Don't -- don't do this to yourself, please.
Emily: I lied to his face. I made vows that I knew I couldn't keep and married him when I knew that I was falling in love with you. That night he -- he walked in on us, and he -- Zander loved that cottage, and it was our first home, and I took that from him, too! I just -- I took everything!
Nikolas: Is that why you think Zander shot me in your dream, to punish the both of us?
Emily: You're right. You're right, it was a nightmare. It's not supposed to make sense.
Faith: You can't take back your protection.
Luke: Sure, I can.
Faith: No, no, no, we have a deal.
Luke: Which doesn't include annoying Mr. Morgan, especially after he was kind enough not to drop you 12 stories on your head last night.
Jason: Luke, whatever deal you made with Sonny, she's not worth it.
Luke: You're probably right, but I've got this destructive thing for blondes. If anything changes, you'll be the first to know. Well, he doesn't waste words, does he?
Faith: Who -- whose side are you on?
Luke: Mine. Now you owe me another 50 grand.
Faith: What -- on top of the 500 thou? Not a chance.
Luke: Hey, Jason, wait up!
Faith: Shut up!
Luke: I want it in small bills, I want it today, and I want you to leave it in my desk at the casino.
Faith: That is extortion.
Faith: Look, it wasn't part of the deal.
Luke: The deal I made was for my benefit, not yours. You either keep our agreement or Sonny Corinthos is going to be the least of your worries.
Sonny: Look at that.
Sam: That's wonderful.
Sonny: What, you never tasted a cheese omelet before?
Sam: Not like this. You're really good. How'd you do it?
Sonny: Well, you know, truth is I never give away my -- my cooking secrets.
Sam: Sonny, you didn't have to do all this for me.
Sonny: I want to.
Carly: Sweetheart, daddy's not going to be able to make it for breakfast. But he's going to call you.
Michael: Is he all right?
Carly: Yeah. He just needed to help out a friend.
Michael: Uncle Jason?
Michael: Is daddy with Sam?
[Knock on door]
Michael: Daddy! I knew you'd be here!
Courtney: Hey, kiddo.
Michael: I thought you were my dad.
Courtney: Oh, well, I'm sorry. Well, I'm glad to see you.
Michael: I'm glad to see you, too. I'll be in my room.
Courtney: Ok. Is he ok?
Carly: Yeah. Sonny was supposed to come over for breakfast this morning. He just decided to cancel.
Carly: Oh, Sam hurt herself or something. Who knows?
Courtney: I'm glad that you called me, especially after last night.
Carly: Listen, you know Michael -- he's just being the peacekeeper, and I know he's disappointed. But he's not going to talk to me about it, and I want to make sure he's ok. I thought maybe he could confide in you.
Courtney: Yeah, I could try to get him to talk to me. Maybe we could take Morgan to the park.
Carly: Oh, that would be great. Morgan's going to be up from his nap soon, so that'll be perfect, and the stroller's on the back porch.
Courtney: Well, what, you're not going to go with us?
Carly: No. I think that maybe you and Michael need some alone time. And while you do that, I think I'll go check on Lorenzo.
Courtney: You aren't serious?
Carly: Listen, Courtney, I know you don't like him and you think that he's the reason that Sonny and I broke up, but --
Courtney: Well, isn't he?
Carly: No, he's not, and I really don't want to fight again with you. Whether you want to acknowledge it or not, Lorenzo is very good to me. And now he's hurt and he doesn't have anyone to take care of him except some hired thugs and his teenage niece, so I am going to check on him. And I really wish that the timing could be different. I wish that he had gone blind next week or next month and not the day that I got custody of my children back, but it happened now, and I am dealing with it in the best way that I can.
Courtney: Ok, Carly, you feel obligated to him, and, yet, yeah, you feel sorry for him, but you don't love him. You love Sonny. Why don't you try to go back to him before it's too late?
Carly: Because it is too late. I got to go. I'll see you later.
Nikolas: I've mastered the coffeemaker. Aren't you impressed?
Emily: Incredibly. Thanks.
Nikolas: Yeah, well, it'll take away your dreams. Once you're loaded up with caffeine, you're going to pack your bags because you're coming to Greece with me.
Emily: You know, my answer to Greece is the same as the one I gave you to Thailand and Sardinia and --
Nikolas: Is that the midterms?
Emily: Yeah. I've got to ace them all.
Nikolas: Yeah, I know. I don't want you to put too much pressure on yourself, ok?
Emily: Uh-huh, yeah, if I'm serious about medical school, I have to get the grades now and --
Emily: It really is that simple, you know?
Nikolas: Well, what is your prognosis, doctor?
Emily: Let's see. Your heart is racing and you've got a faraway look --
Emily: It must be love.
Nikolas: Isn't love supposed to make you happy?
Emily: It does. I am, but I just --
Nikolas: Look, I'm the Cassadine in this relationship, ok? I'll deal with the sense of foreboding and the nightmares and all that. Your job's just to keep reminding me that we have the rest of our lives to love each other.
Emily: Yes. Well, maybe it's that simple. You know, I'm having nightmares because I'm afraid to get everything I ever wanted or --
Nikolas: Mm-hmm, well, you know, you can control your dreams.
Nikolas: Close your eyes. Now, you think happy thoughts, good thoughts right before you drift off to sleep, ok? Like the vows we said to each other in the church and the moment you saw me when you thought I died in the fire.
Emily: I thought that was a dream. I was afraid to look open my eyes in case you disappeared or --
Nikolas: No, no way. Disappearing's out of the question. I love you so much, you know? I'll never let you go.
Singer: Let's shut out the world let's turn down the moon 'cause we don't want this night ending too soon oh intoxicating connection I lose track of time this moment's perfection your heart beats with mine I'm on cloud nine I want to feel your lips on my lips I want to feel your arms around me feel your love surround me when we kiss ooh, like this yeah, it's addicting, baby and it drives me crazy every night and every day oh, baby and it takes me away away away ooh ooh and it takes me away
Luke: Is our arrangement clear? Don't provoke Jason, stay away from Sonny, get me my 50,000, and find out who bombed Sonny's limo.
Faith: I told you it was Lorenzo Alcazar who ordered the hit.
Luke: You got any proof?
Faith: Not yet.
Luke: Well, then, you better get busy.
Faith: Ok, what if there is no proof, hmm? Is Sonny going to come after you for protecting me?
Luke: Sonny and I understand each other.
Faith: Really? Well, you know -- ahem -- I can be pretty understanding myself.
Courtney: Come on, Michael, let's go! We're ready! Michael? Rosie's waiting outside. She wants to go to the park.
Courtney (on phone): Jason, it's Courtney. I need you now.
Sonny: All right.
Sam: No, that was great.
Sonny: You want another omelet? Maybe a couple pounds of bacon or a loaf of bread or --
Sam: Sonny, you said eat, and I ate.
Sonny: Yeah, well -- how's your pain?
Sam: It's feeling better. I'm just going to sleep for about a year and a half. I'll feel a lot better then.
Sonny: Go ahead.
[Knock on door]
Max: Mr. Corinthos?
Sonny: Yes. Come on in.
Max: A messenger dropped this off for you. There you go.
Sonny: Oh, hmm. Thank you.
Sonny: I wonder who -- it's for you. I wonder who sent this?
Sam: Wyndham's? Well, I don't -- I wouldn't be getting a delivery from a department store.
Sonny: Look, I can send it back if you don't like it.
Sam: You ordered this?
Sonny: Well, open it and see, you know? Just for the hell of it. You might as well just look inside.
Sam: Might as well.
Sam: Sonny --
Sonny: Wow. Look at those.
Sam: They're beautiful.
Sonny: You're a beautiful woman, and a beautiful woman deserves beautiful clothes.
Sam: Thank you.
[Knock on door]
Michael: Why did you break your promise to me?
Faith: Oops. We're going to have be a lot more careful.
Luke: Run along, run along.
Faith: Oh, I will. You have positively inspired me. I have an absolutely brilliant idea.
Luke: I can't imagine.
Faith: Have I ever let you down?
Luke: Just don't forget who you're dealing with.
Faith: After last night, how could I forget, you know?
Skye: You know, I just knew that I shouldn't have picked up the phone this morning. I should have -- I should have known better, because I should have known that it was you and that I would show up here, even though I swore I would never, ever want to see you again! And why do I keep making the same mistakes all over again? Because I'm an addict, a drunk, a hopeless case who keeps doing the same things over and over again with the hopes of a different outcome. Oh, my God! My God, I need a meeting, I need a manicure, I need breakfast, but the last thing that I need in this world or will ever, ever need is you!
Luke: You want a cup of coffee?
Skye: Did you just even hear a single word that I said?
Luke: Calm down, Blaze. You're going to love this.
Jason: Michael's with Sonny.
Courtney: Oh, thank God.
Jason: Why didn't you call Sonny yourself?
Courtney: Well, I didn't want to get screamed at for letting Michael sneak out.
Jason: Come on, Courtney, you're not afraid of Sonny.
Courtney: Ok. I didn't want to have to explain to Sonny why Carly wasn't watching him.
Jason: I guess that means Carlyís with Alcazar?
Courtney: It's crazy, Jason. I mean Michael was all upset because Sonny was supposed to have breakfast with him and he canceled. How could Carly just leave?
Jason: She's probably too mad to think straight and went straight to Alcazar.
Courtney: Yeah, well, I tried to point that out to her, but she wouldn't listen and we just started fighting again. Oh, God. Jason, what if Michael heard us?
Jason: That would have made him even more upset.
Courtney: Yeah, Michael probably thinks that Carly would come after him if he went to Sonny, and then their family would be together again.
Jason: Sonny made a mistake giving up those boys.
Courtney: Yeah, Jason. You know, he was trying to do the right thing -- to protect those boys, to give them security, make everyone happy. Does that sound familiar to you? You know, Sonny and I are more alike than I thought. Hey, you run around in circles trying to keep the people you love safe, and you just end up alone.
Sonny: Where'd you get money for the cab?
Michael: Aunt Courtney. I left an I.O.U.
Sonny: Where's your -- where's your mother?
Michael: She went to see Mr. Alcazar.
Sonny: Ok. How many times are you going to run off like this, Michael? You know what? It can't keep happening.
Michael: Why is she wearing your bathrobe?
Sonny: Because she -- she's not feeling well.
Sam: I got -- I got hurt last night, and your daddy's just helping me, that's all.
Michael: If she got hurt, why isn't she at the hospital?
Sonny: Because it's better for me to take care of her here, Michael.
Sonny: This is business, Michael. I'm not going to tell you any more.
Michael: Is it her birthday?
Michael: Then why'd you get her the present?
Sonny: Because she's -- she's my guest.
Michael: How is that business?
Sonny: I thought it would be nice, because she's my friend, to buy her something.
Michael: So she'd feel better?
Sonny: Yeah. That's right.
Sam: Ahem -- I'm feeling a little tired. I'm going to go upstairs.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah.
Michael: Is she living here now?
Sonny: No, Michael, she's going to stay here until she feels better.
Michael: Is she sleeping in my room?
Sonny: No. Ok, you know what? I know this is difficult for you and you're living in a new house and I'm trying to get used to living here alone. It's going to be hard on us for a long time here, Michael.
Michael: Why does it have to be like this? Why does she get to stay here and I don't?
Sonny: Come on. I'm taking you home. Let's go.
Lorenzo: You shouldn't be here.
Carly: Why did you leave the hospital and not tell me?
Lorenzo: You should be focused on your children.
Carly: I am, but I just wanted to check on you, too.
Lorenzo: Well, I hired a private nurse. She starts this afternoon.
Carly: Well, that's good, because I'm terrible nurse. You can ask anybody.
Lorenzo: But you're a wonderful mother, so you should stick to your strong suit.
Carly: Trying to get rid of me?
Lorenzo: Hmm. Obviously.
Carly: Well, maybe you should notice that I'm going to ignore you and everything you want, just like you did to me for months.
Lorenzo: Well, if this is revenge, I can't think of anything more effective. The last thing I want is for you to pity me.
Carly: Oh, Lorenzo, I thought we had worked through that.
Lorenzo: We did. You think if I love you I should let you take care of me, but I disagree. I do love you, Carly, too much to let you stay with me out of sympathy or obligation.
Carly: So what if you can't have me on your own terms, then you don't want me at all --
Lorenzo: Carly, we don't need to discuss this right now.
Carly: Lorenzo, what if I told you that I still wanted to be with you? Just -- hey. What if I told you that I was up all last night and I was thinking about it and I decided that no matter what happens I want you in my life?
Lorenzo: Hmm. Well, then I'd say you were a brave, generous, well-intentioned liar.
Emily: I wish I could go.
Nikolas: You will someday soon. I'll show you the island, the house.
Nikolas: We can go for a stroll along the cliffs, yeah.
Emily: I love the image of you as a little boy staring out at the ocean.
Nikolas: I'll be home as soon as I can, ok?
Emily: Ok. I'll be waiting.
Nikolas: You know you're the most beautiful woman in the whole world? You know that?
Emily: Well, you said that in my dream.
Nikolas: It's true. What?
Emily: Will you wear this for me?
Nikolas: Have you decided that I need divine protection?
Emily: Why not? You promise you'll never take it off?
Nikolas: Yeah, yes, I promise. I will never take it off. I'm going to miss my plane.
Emily: Just a little bit longer?
Nikolas: Em, I'm flying -- I'm flying commercial. They won't hold my flight, baby.
Emily: Well, there's always another flight and another flight after that and another flight after --
Nikolas: Oh, oh, and the sooner I go -- the sooner I go, the sooner I come home. Ok?
Emily: Ok. Nikolas, wait. I love you more than anyone, more than I ever imagined, and I always will.
Nikolas: Well, I love you, too. I'll be home soon.
Skye: I've never heard of this White Valley Tech.
Luke: No, but Tracy has. That's the point. She needs this company to beef up E.L.Q., and now you own controlling shares.
Skye: You bought everything?
Luke: We bought the company that owns the Haunted Star.
Skye: Really? What's the catch?
Luke: What catch? I bought low, you sell high.
Skye: Well, where'd you get the money?
Luke: You wanted Faith's money off the boat, it's off the boat.
Skye: You made a company investment with dirty money?
Luke: Don't get hung up on semantics. You can make Tracy beg for these shares, or you can sell them on the open market, or you can hang on to them as long as the price is going up.
Skye: Well, what if the stock crashes and we lose everything?
Luke: Well, then we get Faith to give us more money.
Skye: Oh, really? And how are we going to do that?
Luke: She's scared, and she knows that I'm the only reason she's still breathing. Do you need more details?
Skye: No. No, thank you, no.
Luke: Look, I'm working Faith, but I'm not working you. We're partners, aren't we?
Skye: Ugh, damn it. I believe you. I hate this.
Luke: I got your back, Blaze. Have you got mine?
Skye: You give me that.
Courtney: At least Michaelís all right.
Jason: Yeah, physically, anyway.
Courtney: You know, Sonny and Carly love him so much. They don't see the way they're hurting him and the worst part is, is how confused he is. You know, he knows that both his parents love each other. He just doesn't understand why they're apart. He knows that they're fighting and he doesn't know the real reason, and, you know, he probably thinks if he throws them together they'll work things out. Honestly sometimes, I think the same thing.
Michael: Is mommy back yet?
Jason: No, she's not, and she's going to have to hear that you took off, Michael. Courtney was worried. Your mom's going to be worried. You know that's not fair, running off on your own.
Michael: I know. I'm sorry.
Sonny: You're going to -- can you apologize to Courtney?
Michael: I'm sorry. I'll pay you back.
Courtney: Well, have you had any breakfast yet?
Michael: No, and I'm starving.
Courtney: All right, come on.
Jason: How's he doing?
Sonny: I don't know how many times I can tell him that this can't happen again. Can you do me a favor? Go to the penthouse and take care of Sam for me?
Jason: Well, isn't Max there?
Sonny: Well, she was pretty weak this morning. I just want to make sure she's not getting any worse.
Sonny: You got something else to say? Jason, just say it.
Jason: Michael found you with Sam?
Sonny: Yeah. He -- he thinks that I want -- you know, I want to spend more time with her than I do with him and Morgan. I tried to explain to him that -- well, he just doesn't get it. He doesn't understand. He's a kid. I don't know how to -- you know, how to do it anymore. I don't know how to fix it. But it was my fault Sam was stabbed. I got to keep her safe. Can you go and guard her, please? Let me take care of my kids?
Lorenzo: I'd like you to leave now.
Carly: And what should I do, Lorenzo? Should I sit by the phone and wait and hope that your eyesight comes back? Well, if it does, don't bother to call me, ok, because then it's going to be too late. If you cannot allow yourself to need me, then there is nothing real between us.
Lorenzo: Am I supposed to forget that I forced my way into your life? Look, I can be arrogant, Carly, and selfish, but I told myself that I was making your life better. I don't want to possess or control you. You know, there's a world outside the prison that Sonny's built for you; his business and his guards and his penthouse. And the last thing I want is to make your world smaller, and how tiny would it be if you tied yourself to a blind man?
Carly: Ok, first of all, you do not know that you are permanently blind. And, secondly, my world -- mine -- whether it is big or it is small or somewhere in between, it is up to me. And, Lorenzo, I get what I want; I just do. And I am at least as stubborn as you are. And, yeah, I want to help you. But if it's not allowed, ok, I will settle for just being with you, because you matter to me. I am not lying about that.
Emily: Hey, thank you for meeting me.
Elizabeth: Of course. I could tell by the tone of your voice that you could use some hot chocolate.
Elizabeth: Here you go.
Emily: Oh. Nikolas has -- Nikolas is on a business trip to Greece.
Elizabeth: Oh, well, how long will he be gone for?
Emily: I'm not sure. You know, less than a week. You know, I'm going to miss him, of course, but that's not what's bothering me.
Elizabeth: Is this about thinking you saw Zander?
Emily: It was -- it was in dream, Liz. I mean, it was a nightmare, really. He shot Nikolas.
Elizabeth: Well, I'm sure that was terrifying, but --
Emily: Right, but it was only a dream. I know, Liz, but some dreams have meanings.
Elizabeth: And sometimes it's a way for your mind to just work through an irrational fear.
Emily: It's not fear, Liz, it's guilt. You know, I promised Zander that I would be him for the rest of his life, and I failed him. You know, I made him believe that I could save him, and then I pulled away. You know, I found love with Nikolas, and I just -- I left Zander with nothing. And I need to ask for forgiveness and just find a way to let it go.
Elizabeth: And how are you going to do that?
Sonny: I know you're disappointed about this morning, right? I understand that, but you cannot run off every time you get angry because it's not safe for you to be on your own.
Michael: Why can't we all go home? I miss my room.
Sonny: I know you do, buddy.
Michael: I miss you and mommy laughing and you yelling at mommy for eating potato chips.
Sonny: Yeah, I miss that, too.
Michael: Remember when you, me, and mommy were sitting together. Morgan was still in mommy's tummy, and we were laughing?
Sonny: Yeah, that was a good night.
Michael: Do you still love me and Morgan?
Sonny: Of course I do. Why would you ask that?
Michael: Do you love mommy?
Sonny: I'll always love your mom.
Jason: Sam? Sam? You were on the door the whole time?
Max: Yeah. I'll check the back stairs.
Sam's voice: "Dear Sonny, this is getting way too complicated, and it isn't fair to your kids. I wish things could be different, but it's better if I go. Look, don't worry about me, ok? I know how to disappear. Please take care of yourself and thank you for everything. Sam."
Man: You made my job easy.
Man: Mr. Alcazar is expecting you.
Luke: Hey, Al. Luke Spencer.
Lorenzo: How'd you get my number?
Luke: A referral from a friend. I understand you're looking to cause some trouble for Sonny Corinthos. I may be able to help you with that for a price.
Man: Your nurse is here.
Lorenzo: Thank you. I'd like to get a shave. My niece set everything up. Why would you want to help me?
Luke: Well, let's just say that Corinthos and I go back far enough to have scores to settle.
Lorenzo: Well, I need time to think about it.
Luke: Nobody's got forever, Al.
Lorenzo: How'd you get in here? Ah --
Faith: Who blew up Sonny's limo?
Carly: Well, it's going to take you a long time pay Aunt Courtney back that $20.
Michael: It's worth it. You guys are back together, and he still loves you. When can we go home?
Sonny: You're home now, buddy.
Michael: Don't say that!
Carly: Hey, hey, hey, Michael. Just wait a minute.
Sonny: It's all right, it's all right, it's all right. Give him a few minutes.
Carly: He doesn't understand any of this, Sonny. It's not fair.
Sonny: Why did you leave him?
Carly: Why did you cancel breakfast?
Sonny: Well, Sam was stabbed. She was in bad shape.
Carly: Hmm. Well, Lorenzoís blind.
Sonny: You expect me to feel sorry for him?
Carly: No, I don't, but please don't expect me to feel sorry for Sam, either. God, will you just listen to us? We cannot keep doing this.
Sonny: Maybe it was better in the old days when divorce wasn't an option. You know, you did everything you could just to make it work for the sake of the children.
Carly: What are you saying?
Sam: I'm leaving town, ok? Please -- no, no -- ow! Ow!
Man: I'll make this fast.
Sam: Please don't do this! Ow!
Emily: I'm so sorry, Zander. I'm here to let you go and to say goodbye. But, first, I want you to know that I loved you and I'm so grateful that you loved me. God. Oh, my God.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Man: Drop the gun or I blow her away.
Sam: Please shoot him!
Lorenzo: I'm surprised Sonny didn't kill you when he had the chance.
Faith: He's giving me time to find the real bomber.
Sonny: How do we come back, Carly?
Emily: Zander, where have you been?
