[Doorbell rings]


Felicia: What do you want?

Tracy: My son!

Felicia: Dillon's not here.

Tracy: Well, I'm sure you won't mind if I look around.

Felicia: You --

Courtney: Hi.

[Music plays]

Jason: Wow, you look -- you look great.

Courtney: Thanks. Come in.

Jason: Something smells good.

Courtney: Yeah, it's chicken potpie.

Jason: That's what you made for our first date.

Courtney: And now I've made it for our last.

Jason: We're -- I mean, we're not on a date. I'm just here to sign the divorce papers.

Courtney: Well, I mean, we can't file the papers until tomorrow, so I -- I just -- I wanted to cook for my husband and sit down to dinner as a married couple one last time.

Jax: Where the hell have you been?

Skye: Jax. Hi.

Jax: You're doing some good business out here.

Skye: Yeah. Yeah, it's ok.

Jax: Then why aren't you thrilled?

Skye: I don't really do thrilled.

Sonny: So are you feeling lucky tonight?

Sam: I'm about to put it to the test.

Sonny: What's your game?

Sam: It doesn't matter. As long as Iím with you, I can't lose.

Sonny: Ah.

Lorenzo: Once Iím dead, maybe Sonny will take you back. Isn't that what you want?

Carly: I just want you out of my life.

Lorenzo: Then go ahead, summon my executioners; let them kill me. That's the only way Iíll stop loving you. What are you waiting for? You want me out of your life. There's only one way to make sure of that.

Carly: I won't be a party to your murder.

Lorenzo: Why? Because you're a law-abiding citizen or because you object to the victim in question?

Carly: I may not want to contribute to your murder, but it does not mean that I love you.

Lorenzo: No, but you want me dead and you're fighting to save my life anyway. That's a start.

Tracy: Dillon and I had a silly little fight, and he ran out of the house. You know how dramatic teenagers can be. Now he won't answer his cell phone. I checked that greasy spoon; he wasn't there, so I figure he must be here.

Felicia: He isn't.

Tracy: Well, you won't mind if I check Georgieís bedroom just to make sure. I can find my own way.

Felicia: You won't come charging into this house like you own it.

Tracy: It's only going to take a minute.

Felicia: Mac is resting, and Georgieís not here.

Tracy: Where is she?

Felicia: My daughter's none of your concern, Tracy.

Tracy: Felicia, I already told you, I understand how difficult it is to raise teenagers, and Iím sure that free-spirited girls are even more difficult. In fact, nobody blames you for running away. Well, at least I don't.

Felicia: Get out of this house, Tracy!

Tracy: While you were in Texas at the rodeo, my son Dillon and your daughter Georgie -- well, they got involved.

Maxie: They -- they actually broke up again.

Tracy: When?

Maxie: Right before spring break. I can't believe Dillon didn't tell you. I mean, Georgie dumped him. He was pretty bummed out about it.

Tracy: I doubt that.

Maxie: Well, I was glad, you know. Dillon's been nothing but a jerk around Georgie.

Tracy: Really?

Maxie: Mm-hmm.

Tracy: Well, I suppose it could have been worse. He could have been involved with you.

Felicia: Ok, ok! You're done! Do not come back here --

Tracy: Oh, please.

Felicia: Without a search warrant, all right?

Tracy: Do yourself a favor -- enjoy your mummy while you still can, because Iím sure it won't be long before she finds a more interesting place to be than here.

Felicia: Ooh --

[Tracy gasps]

[Door closes]

Felicia: Do you happen to know where Dillon is?

Maxie: He's probably with Georgie.

Felicia: At the library?

Maxie: Maybe. Look, why don't we go look?

Felicia: Oh, I canít. I can't leave Mac for the first 24 hours.

Maxie: Well, why don't you go check on Mac? I mean, what if he heard Tracy and got upset? You know how crazy Mac is about Dillon.

Felicia: Yeah, good point. I should do that. Oh, nice job on handling yourself, by the way.

Maxie: Thanks.

Felicia: I'm going to check on him.

Dillon: My mom is watching the house. I know it.

Maxie: Ok, you can sneak out through the lodge room. I'll call Georgie and I'll tell her to meet you at Kellyís, all right?

Dillon: Ok.

Maxie: Ok. Go.

Dillon: Thank you.

Emily: Whew.

Mike: Hey, guys. Listen, I heard they called off the search for Nikolas. I'm very sorry.

Lucky: Thanks Mike.

Emily: Thank you.

Mike: Yeah, listen, I'll set you up with some coffee, ok?

Emily: Sounds good.

Lucky: Are you ok with being at Kellyís? It's kind of public.

Emily: Yeah, I just needed to get out of the house for a while.

Lucky: Yeah.

Emily: So how are you holding up?

Lucky: Well, being with you, someone who loved my brother as much as you did, that gives me peace.

Emily: Yeah. I'll never stop loving Nikolas. He'll always be in my heart.

Nikolas: What the -- what -- why? Why did not you let me help you clean the gutters?

Mary: Sorry. It was just a few leaves.

Nikolas: You mean I don't remember, right?

Mary: Oh, we always used to have the servants do it.

Nikolas: Very funny.

Mary: Connor? Help. Oh.

Nikolas: What's wrong?

Mary: The zipper's stuck.

Nikolas: That's too bad.

Mary: You're very funny. Will you just help me out of this?

Nikolas: Come here, come here, come here. If I can remember how to do this.

Mary: Ok. Ow, ow --

Nikolas: I'm sorry. Hold on.

Mary: Ok.

Nikolas: Hold on.

Mary: Ok.

Nikolas: All right. There you go. What? What's wrong?

Mary: The rain.

Nikolas: What?

Mary: The roads could start flooding out. I have to make a run for supplies.

Nikolas: We don't have all we need?

Mary: You don't remember how bad the roads get. We could be stuck here for days. I just have to change.

Nikolas: It's all right.

Mary: It'll just be a second.

[Music plays]

Courtney: Do you remember that first dinner? Doesn't it seem like a long time ago? Oh, I was in that awful apartment.

Jason: I thought you liked that place.

Courtney: Yeah, well, I was just too proud to admit it was a dump.

Jason: Well, it was ok. It just wasn't too safe.

Courtney: And that's when I asked you to dinner, remember? And to thank you for guarding me? I mean, it wasn't even supposed to be a date. I mean, it was a date in disguise as a thank-you dinner. And I figured everybody has to eat, right?

Jason: This is really good.

Courtney: Thanks.

Jason: It was then, too.

Courtney: You remember the red wine?

[Courtney giggles]

Courtney: It was supposed to be white, but it was on sale and I forgot that red doesn't go with chicken. And then I spilt it everywhere.

[Jason gasps]

Courtney: Oh, my -- oh, Jason --

Jason: Oh --

Courtney: Oh, I'm so sorry. I'm sorry.

Jason: No, no, it's ok, it's ok.

Courtney: I'm such a klutz tonight. I'm not usually like this when Iím cooking. I don't know what's wrong with me.

Jason: That night didn't turn out the way I expected.

Courtney: Yeah, not for me, either. If you could go back to that night knowing what we know now, would you change anything?

Jason: Yes, I would.

Courtney: What would you change?

Jason: Everything from that kiss on.

Sam: No, I think roulette --

Sonny: All right.

Sam: Yeah.

Skye: Welcome to the Haunted Star. Welcome.

Sonny: Well, it's good to be here.

Skye: Well, you will let me know if there's anything that you need.

Sonny: Yeah, we will.

Skye: Ok.

Skye: Kind of makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, doesn't it?

Jax: It's not a problem.

Skye: Oh, you're so cute when you lie.

Jax: How would you like an old friend to whisk you away from all this, huh?

Skye: Oh, I really do have to work.

Jax: Yes, the ultimate painkiller.

Skye: Absolutely. But I wouldn't blame you for leaving.

Jax: Why would I leave?

Skye: Isn't it obvious?

Jax: Are you trying to get rid of me?

Skye: No, not at all.

Jax: Then why don't you tell me what's wrong.

Skye: Oh, God. Any idiot could have seen it coming. You know, I mean, Ned warned me. Everybody warned me. Skye as a Quartermaine heir? Really.

Jax: Edward cut you out of the will.

Sam: Whoo! I did it! I can't believe it. The first time out and I win. I'm the big winner tonight.

Sonny: You said you were on a winning streak, right?

Sam: It looks like my luck just dried up.

Lorenzo: Doesn't this feel familiar? When Jason locked me in the panic room and you showed up with a gun?

Carly: I didn't kill you then. I'm not going to kill you now. I just want you to go away.

Lorenzo: And what if I were gone? Imagine your life without me.

Carly: Looks pretty good.

Lorenzo: You're sure?

Carly: Hmm.

Lorenzo: Look closer. Are you back with Sonny?

Carly: No.

Lorenzo: You just told me you still love him. Is that because it's the truth or because it's the most painful lie you can tell me; the one you think will drive me away?

Carly: Look, I do want you gone. Lorenzo, I don't trust you, I don't respect you anymore, and you will not accept that. You won't accept that I don't want you, and you keep pursuing me when I have rejected you over and over again. Now, don't you think better of yourself? What happened to your pride? What kind of man clings to a woman who does not want him?

Lorenzo: You say you don't love me, but you can't let me go. You can't let me die, either. Now, that's incredibly frustrating. I mean, even now, all you have to do is pick up a phone, make one phone call, and it'll all be over. But you can't do that. Now, Iíd like to think it's because you care about me. Or maybe it's simpler. Maybe you don't want to give Sonny the satisfaction. Maybe you don't want to ask him for help when you know he doesn't love you.

Sonny: Go ahead, place another bet.

Sam: What do you think Ricís doing here?

Sonny: Forget Ric. He's obsessed with me, so, you know, it's his problem, not ours. Tonight, nothing's going to touch us.

Sam: Ok. All on black. Here we go.

Sonny: All on black.

Ric: A thug in a designer suit. A call girl in a designer dress. You're a matched set.

Sonny: You know the difference between you and me, Ric --

Ric: Hmm?

Sonny: Is that when Iím with a woman who makes me proud, I don't hide behind her.

Ric: Enjoy your freedom while you can.

Alexis: I got your message. I came here as soon as I can. What's the emergency?

Jax: First thing, I'm so sorry about Nikolas.

Skye: Oh, so am I. If there's anything that I can do --

Alexis: Thank you. This can't be why you dragged me out on a night like this.

Skye: Jax, maybe this wasn't such a great idea.

Jax: No, Alexis is the best attorney I know. If anyone can help, she can.

Sam: Whoo! Yes! Come to mama!

Skye: You know, it's probably too late to change anything, anyway.

Alexis: So I assume this legal difficulty is yours?

Jax: Think of me as a bridge that's going to put a client in need together with a brilliant attorney who can win her case.

Alexis: Are you drunk?

Jax: At least hear Skye out. Try not to kill each other.

[Sam laughs]

Jax: Here, nine and 19, please.

Sam: Oh.

Sonny: No, let me tell you something.  She's on a lucky streak, Jax.

Jax: I'll take my chances.

Sam: Ok.

Sonny: Don't say I didn't warn you.

Jason: I should have listened to Sonny and just left you alone.

Courtney: Are you sorry you married me?

Jason: Well, I'm sorry that I caused you so much pain; that I brought you into a dangerous world. I should have been stronger and left you alone. Instead, I was selfish.

Courtney: Oh, Jason, you are the most unselfish person I know.

Jason: Loving you, Courtney, was selfish. Convincing myself that I could make you happy was selfish.

Courtney: Why? Why is that selfish?

Jason: Because I wanted to be with you no matter what it cost me -- or you.

Courtney: You made me happy, Jason, happier than I have ever been.

Jason: You're forgetting the bad parts.

Courtney: No, I'm not forgetting anything. It's the bad stuff -- the danger and the sadness -- it only made me appreciate the good stuff even more. And if that makes me selfish, well, then Iím selfish. I want to remember every single second that we had together.

Jason: You know, I was with Emily today. And, you know, Iím trying to help. Nikolas is gone. I know there's nothing I can do, but -- but I asked, anyway.

Courtney: And what did she say?

Jason: She wanted me to tell you the truth, and you already know it, but I'll say it again. I love you. I always will.

Georgie: Hi.

Dillon: Hey, hi. Do you want sit?

Georgie: Sure. Maxie said you were looking for me?

Dillon: Yeah. She said you were looking for me, too. Which is probably why you didn't come home with the rest of your family.

Georgie: You went to my house?

Dillon: Long story.

Georgie: Ok --

Dillon: With an ending you are going to hate. Something terrible happened while you were gone, and it's all my fault.

Mike: Whew, hey guys, listen, this is Ruby's chili with a little spin.

Lucky: I'm sure she'd appreciate it.

Mike: Well, bon appetit. Good luck.

Emily and Lucky: Thanks.

Emily: Remember the first time Nikolas ate a bowl of chili?

Lucky: When he was trying to be so polite, like he ate it every day?

Emily: Yeah. You know, it's funny. He always wanted to be treated like an ordinary guy, but he was an honest-to-goodness prince through and through.

Mary: Hi.

Mike: Hey.

Mary: A quart of chili and can I get a whole apple pie?

Mike: Sure. Why not? Are you stocking up?

Mary: In a way.

Mike: All right.

Sam: All right, another winner. Just let that ride.

Sonny: Ok, I'm going to go get a drink. Do you need anything?

Sam: No. Thank you.

Sonny: All right.

Jax: You seem to be enjoying yourself.

Sam: What can I say? It's fun to win.

Jax: I hope you're not setting yourself up for a fall.

Sam: Is that a threat?

Jax: No, not at all.

Sam: You promised that you wouldn't say anything about that night in the fire.

Jax: I'm not going to. I was referring to your betting.

Sam: Oh, ok, then I don't have anything to worry about.

Jax: Well, I wouldn't say that. Everyone that's with Sonny pays eventually -- even the mother of his own children. You won't be any different.

Sonny: Thank you.

Alexis: Hi. Could I have a glass of water, please?

Sonny: Shouldn't you be home with your daughter?

Alexis: Make that a vodka martini, dry, please.

Sonny: It's just an observation. I mean, you don't have much room to criticize other people's fitness as parents.

Alexis: I was doing the job that your wife paid me to do.

Sonny: You -- you tried to break me on that stand, and it did not work, did it? Well, you know what, Alexis? It's ok, because, see, I don't -- I don't really hold grudges. In my life, one way or the other, the scales usually balance themselves out.

Ric: Is there a problem here?

Sonny: No. Counselor and I were just discussing the scales of justice. But since you both are such experts, Iíll let you two talk.

Ric: What's going on between you and Sonny?

Alexis: Nothing.

Ric: You know, Alexis, I don't mean to pry, but you defended Sonny at one point. You know how he deals with his enemies. Why'd you go out of your way to make yourself one of them by defending Carly?

[Sam chuckles]

Sam: Thank you. Is it safe for me to count my chips now?

Jax: Are you prepared to walk away from the table?

Skye: Oh, I'm afraid you'll have to. Now, you've done brilliantly and I offer my congratulations, but I am afraid that we'll have to cut you off.

Sam: Why?

Skye: Well, we do have house policy, and you are over the house limit, so I'm afraid that we're going to --

Luke: Snap out of it, Red. The Haunted Star is a casino. What we do here is gamble.

Lorenzo: Sonny's moved on to someone else.

Carly: Sam means nothing to Sonny.

Lorenzo: Then why is she sleeping in your bed?

[Carly sighs]

Carly: Because Sonny doesn't like to sleep alone, ok? He doesn't love her.

Lorenzo: Carly, Sonny has moved on. He's accepted what you refuse to see -- that our connection is undeniable. Look, this has torn our lives apart, caused us tremendous pain, but it's there, all the same. You can't get me out of your head, you can't get me out of your heart, and you can't get me out of your basement, for that matter. I'm in your life in a way that Sonny never will be.

Carly: Now, that is not true.

Lorenzo: Don't you think I would leave if I could? I can't, even if it costs me my life. That's how much I love you.

Michael: Mommy? Are you down there?

Carly: Michael, no. Don't come down here.


Jason: What I learned about love was that my life was ok without it. It was a lot easier. Nothing hurt. And I met you. And you were the best thing that will ever happen to someone like me, but I can't make you happy. You deserve the life you want, and I can't -- I can't give it to you, Courtney.

Courtney: So you're letting go?

Jason: That's what's best.

Courtney: You're what's best for me, Jason. I don't want to sign those stupid papers. Let's just -- let's just rip them up and throw them out the window. If you won't say it, I will. I don't want the divorce.

Jason: My life won't change.

Courtney: I know.

Jason: How can we be married if -- if you hate the way I live and the things I do?

Courtney: I hate the fear. I hate the violence and the danger. But what I can't get my heart around, Jason, is how you'll die. And you will die if you stay in this life. And I don't want to open that door and see the look on my brother's face. I don't want to have to help Carly through it or be brave for Michael and Morgan. I don't want to turn on the TV and see your body covered by a sheet.

Jason: Just stop, stop. I don't -- I don't know how long Iím going to live, but I can't promise to change anything I do. But I can promise not to hurt you in the way I already have. And the best way to do that is to let you go.

Courtney: Oh, I wish it wasn't like this.

Jason: I got to be someplace.

Courtney: All right. Jason, you -- you didn't sign the divorce papers.

Jason: Neither did you.

Lorenzo: So what'd you tell Michael this time? The basement isn't safe? There's a monster living down here?

Carly: Hmm. It's not far from the truth.

Lorenzo: Michael's a smart little boy. He's very curious. He'll find me and he will tell his father and Sonny will have to kill me.

Carly: No, Michaelís not going to find you.

Lorenzo: Not if you uncuff me. For God's sake, Carly, the basement is starting to flood. Do you want me to die down here of pneumonia?

Carly: Do you swear to leave town and never come back?

Lorenzo: No. So I guess we're at a stalemate.

Carly: Trust me on this one, Lorenzo -- I'm a hell of a lot more stubborn than you are, and I will keep you locked down here until you are convinced that we are over.

Jax: Out of respect for Skye, I'm stepping away from the table. All good gamblers know when to quit. Thanks.

Sonny: At least he knows how to recognize defeat when it's staring him in the face.

Sam: Jax can find another game. This one is mine.

Faith: Aren't you going to chase him down, hon? You know, tug on his shirttail, that sort of thing?

Luke: Go have a drink, Faith, and consider going home early.

[Sonny chuckles]

Alexis: I don't have to justify my choice of clients to you.

Ric: No. I'm just surprised you would take that kind of a risk. I mean, representing Carly after you slept with her husband, that's more than a case of conflict of interest.

Alexis: You don't like Sonny, and I'm not fond of him at the moment. Go find yourself another playmate. I'm not interested in a vendetta. The farther I stay away from him, the better.

Ric: Yeah, it's Lansing. I got a job for you. Yeah, I want a report on the connection between Sonny Corinthos and Alexis Davis. Find out everything there is to know.

Dillon: Listen, the pictures are off the computer, ok? They're off, and I told Sage I pretty much never want to see her again. Ditto that for my mom. And then I left for good. I went away.

Georgie: You left home? But how are you going to live?

Dillon: I don't care, as long as you know that you're who I want to be with. There's nobody more important to me in the world. I don't know how else to say it.

Mike: There you go.

Mary: Thanks.

Mike: Ok? Thank you.

Emily: Mary.

Mary: Hi.

Emily: Hi. I just wanted to let you know that the search has been called off.

Mary: I heard. I'm sorry. Well, at least you're -- at least you have some company.

Emily: Yeah. Lucky and I are trying to be each other's support system. Nikolas was his brother and my fiancť.

Mary: Fiancť?

Emily: Nikolas and I were going to be married this summer.

Sonny: She's like gold.

Luke: I see no reason why the house limit can't be raised for Mr. Corinthos.

Skye: We're low on cash.

Faith: So Iíll make another phone call. What's the problem?

Skye: I don't want your dirty money.

Luke: Well, it won't be dirty for long. Once the Haunted Star Greenback Laundry is in operation again, rub-a-dub-dub.

Sonny: You want to spin again or what do you want to do?

Sam: You know what? I think I'll push my luck in other ways now.

Sonny: Yeah?

Sam: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: You want to go home?

Sam: Yeah.

Sonny: All right.

Carly: Hey, I need you to get over to my house.

Courtney: What's wrong?

Carly: I had to leave Lorenzo in the basement and I need you to check on him, make sure he's ok and that he cannot get out.

Courtney: Where are you?

Carly: Michael was getting curious, and I needed to bring him over to Sonny's, so I took him and Morgan to get them out of the house.

Courtney: Couldn't you have taken them to your mom's?

Carly: No, she's out of town. Please, Courtney, will you just go over there, check on him, and I promise you as soon as I get the boys settled I will come home.

Courtney: Oh. Ok, ok.

Carly: Thank you.

Michael: My room, it looks just the same.

Carly: Didn't I tell you that it would?

Michael: How long are we going to stay here?

Carly: I don't know, a couple of days or so.

Michael: I wish you, me, and Morgan could stay here forever.

Skye: Vodka, straight up, please.

Bartender: Yes, ma'am.

Luke: Drowning sorrow?

Skye: Go away.

Luke: It's your ex, isn't it?

Skye: Jax has nothing to do with this.

Luke: Are the Quartermaines kicking you around again?

Skye: You may recall a conversation that we had on the Elm Street Pier about you wanting me -- or, more specifically, wanting us, after which you kissed me, after which you promptly disappeared right on schedule only to emerge days later with Faith draped on your arm.

Luke: Oh, that.

Skye: Yeah, that. You'd think I'd catch on by now.

Luke: Well, now, see, what you don't get here is that that was business.

Skye: You know --

Luke: It --

Skye: Please? I've heard it all before, ok? Like it's always the same. But I really see what's going on now, Luke. You're just using me like everybody else. You never gave a damn about me. And you know what? I never gave a damn about you either.

Skye: Bartender?

Dillon: There's no way Iím going back to the house.

Georgie: Ok, then stay at my house like you planned.

Dillon: Georgie, what about Mac and your mom? I mean --

Georgie: They'll never know.

Lucky: You know, I should go.

Emily: Yeah, I know. Me too.

Lucky: And Nikolas -- he wouldn't want our lives to stop.

Emily: I have to say goodbye to him somehow.

Lucky: So do I.

Emily: Maybe a memorial service is the way to start.

Nikolas: Welcome home.

Courtney: Carly, hey, it's Courtney. Look, I had to change first, but I am on my way over to check on Alcazar, so just take your time getting the kids settled with Sonny. Bye. Hi.

Jason: Where are you going?

Carly: Your daddy -- he loves you very much, and you and Morgan will always have a home here.

Michael: What about you?

Carly: Well, you know what? Your daddy and I, we are connected in a very special way.

Carly: And you and Morgan and your daddy and I -- we are still a family, even though things have changed, and maybe we can spend more time together. Maybe we can even go on some trips together.

Michael: What if he's too busy?

Carly: Sweetheart, Daddy is not going to be too busy for you and Morgan.

Michael: Do you still love Daddy?

Carly: I'll always love him.

Michael: Hi, Daddy.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Nikolas: I want to make love to you.

Mary: I can't make love to a stranger.

Carly: I'm not saying a word as long as she is standing in the room.

Sam: You don't live here anymore, Carly. I do.

Jason: I want to spend every moment I can with you.
