Nikolas: Shh, shh. She's asleep.
Priest: Oh. Such a lovely young woman. She lost her fiancťe not long ago. We had the memorial service here. Father Ramirez conducted the service.
Nikolas: Yeah, I was here at the door of the church.
Priest: You know her?
Nikolas: Never spoken to her.
Priest: Perhaps it's time the two of you met.
Skye: Who's there? Who are you? What do you want? At least have the courage to show yourself.
Courtney: Jason, do you really hate Alcazar so much you would be willing to spend the rest of your life in prison --
Jason: I don't give a damn about Alcazar! You were my wife, Courtney. I loved you more than anything. 30 minutes before it happened, you said you still loved me and you wanted to get back together.
Courtney: I do! I did I want to get back together with you, Jason. God, I practically begged you not to sign the divorce papers, but you did it anyway and closed the door in my face.
Jason: Just leave it closed, please. Ok? I can't freaking do this anymore! I can't have you yelling at me one minute and then crying for me the next. I can't stop being mad at you any more than I can stop loving you, and I don't want to fight anymore!
Courtney: Then say goodbye, Jason. Just say it and mean it, and maybe I'll mean it, too. See? You can't do it either. You know --
Jason: I shouldn't have done that.
Courtney: Why not?
Jason: Because it doesn't change anything.
Sam: Are you -- are you traveling to Central America for business or pleasure?
Woman: Oh, I'm meeting my husband. He left a few days early to get the paperwork started. We're adopting a baby.
Sam's voice: "Dear Sonny, this may come as a shock to you. I know I promised to tell you face to face if I ever decided to leave, but I couldn't. Seeing you in the park with Carly and your children, all of you laughing and happy, I realized there could never be a future for us. And I'm sure you know it, too. So please don't think of this as a betrayal. I'm leaving because I can't break up your family. I just hope you understand. All my love, Sam."
Carly: I know way too much about Sam, but Iím fine.
Jax: You're fine with everything?
Carly: Sam's a manipulator, Jax. She's got Sonny jumping through hoops to keep their little secret affair going.
Jax: What happened between Sonny and Sam isn't exactly a secret -- except, apparently, to you.
Carly: Well, enlighten me, then.
Nikolas: Father, Father, just -- you know what, just let her sleep. She looks so peaceful; I don't have the heart to wake her up. I really need to get home, anyway.
Priest: Oh, I left your wages on the altar.
Nikolas: Yeah, I found the envelope, thank you.
Priest: Oh, and one of the women in the parish made a plate of cookies for the young man who painted the church. Wait right here. I'll get it.
Priest: Shall we begin?
Emily: I want to thank you, dear God, for the miracle of your love, for the time you gave me and Nikolas together, for the years I had to grow up and to realize that he was more than a handsome boy who was out of my reach. He's the man I want to build my life around. I want to stand by his side every day that we live. And I ask you, dear God, to please, please help me to love him the way he deserves to be loved -- with patience and understanding and passion. And I pray that I will never lose sight of how blessed I am to be his wife.
Nikolas: I, Nikolas, take thee, Emily, to be my wife. I promise to share your burdens and keep your secrets. I promise that I will stand by your side no matter what challenges we face. I promise to trust you and believe in you, and I promise that I will love you forever. I give you this ring as a symbol of my life and my faith.
Emily: I, Emily, take thee, Nikolas, to be my husband. I promise to have your children and to support you through good times and bad. I promise to believe in you and to trust you with all of my secrets and hopes and fears. And I promise that I will love you forever. I don't have a ring to give you, so I give you my heart instead.
Priest: You may kiss the bride. I don't mean to disturb you.
Priest: Are you all right?
Luke: What happened?
Skye: Luke. Oh, my God, there was a woman. She was holding a knife, and then -- then she ran.
Luke: Which way?
Skye: That way.
Luke: Stay here.
Skye: Lucky, it's Skye. Look, I am in the gazebo in the park. There's a woman stalking me. She had a knife. Now, could you please get here as quickly as you can, please, and bring some other officers for backup? Thanks.
Luke: I didn't see anyone.
Skye: She could be anywhere. She could be just hiding, waiting.
Luke: Who did you call?
Skye: I just called Lucky.
Luke: I'll protect you.
Skye: No, Luke, you canít.
Luke: Blaze, I won't let anything --
Skye: Luke, it was Laura!
Jason: That first night we kissed -- what happened to us?
Courtney: Why did you kiss me?
Jason: Because I couldn't help myself, just like now. That's never happened with anybody else. You know, if it's a bad idea, I stop. If it's a mistake, I learn. If it hurts too much, I quit feeling. Except with you. Courtney, we -- we're not ending tonight. Ok, we ended I don't even know how long ago. Maybe it was when we signed the divorce papers. Maybe it was when I took my ring off. Maybe it was even before that. Maybe we ended the night we began.
Courtney: You think that we were always going to end up here?
Jason: Didn't you?
Courtney: God. I think that we had a lot of chances to make things different. And we didn't take them, Jason, and now it's too late.
Jax: You don't want to see the truth about Sonny.
Carly: Well, try me.
Jax: Nah, why bother? You'll only believe what he wants you to hear.
Carly: So what is the point of your visit here, Jax? You just want to stir things up between me and Sonny?
Jax: Oh, Carly, you can manage that without any coaching from me. I'm here on a different matter.
Carly: Sam, right?
Jax: It does have something to do with her, yes.
Carly: Mm-hmm, yes? Let me guess -- it's got to be driving you crazy that another one of your old flames is with Sonny. It's like dťja vu all over again, except it's a trailer park version of the Brenda saga.
Jax: That's pretty good.
Jax: But no.
Carly: No? Come on. You've got to want to take Sam back away from Sonny, right, because then somehow you can seem like a better man.
Jax: You know, Carly, you should be a lot nicer to me. I'm the only person who may be able to save your marriage. Have a nice day.
Carly: What happened?
Sonny: It's, uh -- it's over with Sam.
Luke: You saw Laura?
Skye: I saw a woman with blonde hair holding a knife.
Luke: It couldn't be Laura. It was probably Faith.
Skye: Well, you ruled her out already.
Luke: Well, then it was somebody else -- a stranger or Tracy in a wig.
Skye: Luke, your wife escaped from a mental hospital, ok, and now she's stalking me, framing me --
Luke: I'm telling you it wasn't Laura! It couldn't be. I don't even exist to her anymore. She had a complete mental breakdown after the accident that killer her stepfather. It couldn't be her! Skye, the last time I went to the hospital, it was to break her out. I thought that our love was stronger than whatever it was that took her mind away, but I was wrong. When she looked at me, there was nothing there. Nothing. I'm no longer kidding myself that I could bring her back. In order for her to frame you for murder, she would have to feel betrayal or jealousy or something, and she doesn't! She has no feelings for me at all! Her mind is gone, and the doctors told me it was irreversible, but they didn't have to tell me because I saw it. I saw it in her eyes. I no longer have any fantasies or hopes that our love will come back.
Emily: My dream was so real. Nikolas and I were getting married right there at the altar. I could feel his hands in mine as we said our vows. And then I woke up. And for a split second, I was sure he was actually here.
Priest: I'm so sorry.
Emily: It hurts so much knowing that he's never coming back.
Priest: You'll always have memories and some measure of solace in the time you had together.
Emily: Thanks for everything, Father.
Priest: Why don't you stay a while? I'll brew some tea.
Emily: No, I need to get home.
Priest: Well, it's pouring rain and the storm will let up in a bit. Just stay a half-hour?
Emily: No, I'll be fine, thank you.
Courtney: So what are you going to do now?
Courtney: Jason, for the rest of your life. Are you going to work for Sonny, live across the hall from him, try to keep the peace between him and Carly when you're not out getting shot at?
Jason: You know what, I can't think about the future.
Courtney: I think about the future all the time. You know, where I'll be a month from now or a year from now. You know, I try to predict the morning that Iíll wake up and not miss you anymore. It hasn't happened yet, but it's so typical, right? Look, I know that there's no way to let go. I just -- sooner or later, Iíll find it.
Jason: You start with saying the words. Goodbye.
Woman: My husband and I tried everything, but I was unable to conceive. So we did some research and we found out about this convent in Costa Rica that runs an orphanage and a home for unwed mothers. I know how hard it must be for someone to decide to give up their baby, but my husband and I have so much to offer -- love, support, a stable home. The child will have a chance at life it couldn't otherwise have.
Sonny: She left town. No warning, just a note.
Carly: Saying what?
Sonny: Saying goodbye. She made it clear she's -- she's not coming back.
Carly: She had to have left a few clues for you to follow.
Sonny: It's not like that, Carly.
Carly: Oh, come on Sonny, look, Sam said she was cool with me and the kids moving back in here, but she had to be threatened as hell, so she's just pulling a little scheme here to yank your chain, to get a little attention.
Sonny: Sam doesn't want to break up our family, Carly.
Carly: She's just saying that because she thinks you want to hear it.
Sonny: Read that.
Carly: What's the point?
Sonny: Well, it's the only way to convince you. Just read it. That's what she probably wanted to tell me when we were at the park with the kids.
Carly: Well, you must be disappointed and hurt.
Sonny: I don't know. I don't know what to feel.
Jax: Where's Sam?
Jason: I don't know.
Jax: Sonny shipped her off somewhere, didn't he? She told him that the baby was his, and now he's taking over, making arrangements. Well, you can tell Sonny it'll be a cold day in hell before I allow him to take my child.
Jason: What makes you think this baby's yours, Jax?
Jax: I saw it in Samís eyes when she told me she was pregnant.
Jason: Come on, you and Sam were over a long time ago.
Jax: We were trapped in my room during the hotel fire. We thought we weren't going to make it, so one thing led to another.
Jason: Doesn't prove anything.
Jax: The timing is right. Sam knows it's true.
Jason: Did she ever actually say you were the father?
Jax: No. I think she's trying to con Sonny into staying with her. She knows he'd never walk away from Carly and his sons. She's using my child to snag him.
Carly: You told Sam that you wanted to keep seeing her even after I moved back in. You didn't have to do that, Sonny. It was the perfect opportunity for you to let her go, but you didn't.
Sonny: Sam was there during a rough period. I needed her to protect myself. After you told me that Alcazar was in your thoughts, in your dreams, and I saw you guys and you couldn't shake your feelings, I wasn't going to let you hurt me like that again.
Carly: Well, I wish you had told me.
Sonny: Well, what good would it have done? I mean, I don't --
Carly: I don't know, maybe none, I don't know. Sam, she was a bit of protection for me, too, because that way it was a reason for me to justify why I didn't want to get back together and work things out with you.
Sonny: Why did you need a reason? I mean --
Carly: I didn't want to get hurt, either, Sonny. It's just easier to keep your distance than risk another broken heart.
Sonny: Yeah, that's right.
Nikolas: Emily? Emily? Are you ok? It's ok. It's ok. Here. Oh, God. Emily? Emily, are you ok? Oh, God.
Mary: My God, Emily.
Nikolas: Yeah, I was walking on the side of the road and her car spun into a ditch.
Mary: She's unconscious.
Nikolas: She's got a pretty nasty cut on her head right here.
Mary: I'll take care of her.
Nikolas: We need to call for help, Mary.
Mary: I will, but first you need to get out of sight.
Nikolas: Well, I'll just -- I'll help you till the ambulance gets here.
Mary: No, I don't want her to know you're here. You're an AWOL marine. She could say something. People could come back here and look for you.
Nikolas: Ok. All right, Iíll be in my room.
Mary: You were in a car accident.
Emily: I remember. You -- you found me?
Mary: Yeah. Yeah, you have a pretty nasty bump on your head. Do you feel hurt anywhere else?
Emily: I -- I don't think so.
Mary: It was raining pretty hard out there. You must have hit a slick spot and lost control.
Emily: No. I saw a man by the side of the road. It was Nikolas.
Jax: So where is Sam?
Jason: Even if I knew, I wouldn't tell you.
Jax: What, are you, like, under orders from Sonny to stonewall anyone who asks questions? Or is this something else? She fooled me and Sonny. Maybe she's conned you, too. You didn't sleep with her, did you?
Jason: Get the hell out and stay away from Sam.
Jax: Once my child is born and I have sole custody, you and Sonny and whoever else wants Sam can have her.
Jason: Max, I need to talk to Sonny. It's important. Away from Carly.
Max: He's in the penthouse with her now. He told me not to disturb him.
Jason: Ok. Well, don't let them leave. It's very important. I'm on my way.
Mary: Jason Morgan?
Jason: Who's asking?
Mary: This is Mary Bishop. We met at the hospital.
Jason: How'd you get this number?
Mary: Your sister asked me to call you. She's been in an accident.
Jason: What happened? Is she hurt?
Mary: She ran her car into a ditch. She's at my house.
Jason: Where are you?
Mary: 22 Black Bear Way, between the river and the church where the memorial was.
Jason: Ok, I'm on my way.
Courtney: I still love Jason so much.
Mike: And you're asking yourself if you made the right decision?
Courtney: What if I chose Jasonís world and all the danger that comes with it? I mean, what if I accepted living with the fear that I could lose him at any time? Could I be happy?
Mike: Jason makes you happy. He respects you, he'll always be faithful, and, if you choose to be with him, he'll never leave you.
Courtney: So you think that Jasonís right for me?
Mike: A father wants his daughter to be taken care of and treated well. For that, Jason gets an A-plus.
Mike: But do I approve of what his job is with Sonny? No. So maybe I need to compromise and realize that nothing is perfect.
Courtney: Do you really think that I could make this work?
Mike: Sweetheart, you are a better person than I have ever been. I would never presume to tell you what to do. But, yes, if you choose to be with Jason, you can be happy. And now, I am going to offer you something that you can absolutely count on -- a Philly cheese steak with onions. It's the real deal, just like at that little deli when you were just a little girl.
Courtney: Sounds good, dad.
Mike: Good. It's coming right up.
Sonny: I turned to Sam after I walked in on you and Alcazar.
Carly: But you thought that we were sleeping together, and we weren't.
Sonny: Ok, it doesn't -- you know what, at this point, it doesn't really matter anymore who turned to who, who did what. I tried to protect myself, ok, because you have the ability to hurt me more than any of my enemies.
Carly: You hurt me, too, Sonny. Maybe we've done too much damage. I don't think that things are ever going to be the way they once were.
Max: Jax is here to see you.
Sonny: Can you tell him that Iím busy?
Max: I did, but he's not taking no for an answer.
Sonny: He's out there?
Sonny: What do you want?
Jax: Where's Sam?
Sonny: I -- I have no idea.
Jax: You've taken her someplace. I want to know where.
Sonny: Ok, Jax, leave Sam alone.
Jax: Like hell I will. The baby she's carrying is mine, not yours. Did Sam mention that she slept with me during the fire or is she trying to pass the baby off as yours?
Sonny: Is that all you came here to say?
Jax: What are you going to do? You going to hide Sam until the baby's born and then try to adopt the child and ask Carly to raise it?
Sonny: Keep your voice --
Jax: There's a flaw in that plan. You know why? Because the child is mine, not yours.
Sonny: Sam told you that?
Jax: She doesn't have to. A D.N.A. test will prove it.
Sonny: Yeah, right. This discussion's done.
Jax: No, this discussion's not over. You know what, you think you're the greatest family man, don't you, huh, boasting to the world how well you protect your children? Well, the truth is you know that they'd be safer away from you. It's all about control with you, isn't it, hmm -- what's yours, what you own?
Sonny: You need to get out of here, Jax.
Jax: You want to screw up your children's lives, that's your problem, not mine. It has nothing to do with me.
Jax: But you are not getting anywhere near my child.
Sonny: Really? Your child, huh?
Jax: If you try --
Jax: I might just have to kill you.
Sonny: Yeah? You'll kill me, huh?
Max: I'll take care of this.
Jax: That's ok. I've said all --
Sonny: Don't you ever threaten me. Ok?
Jax: It's ok. I've said everything I want to say.
Woman: Why are you going to Central America?
Sam: I was in an unworkable relationship, and if I stayed, I don't think I would ever have found the strength to leave, so I figured Iíd go away, as far as I possibly could.
Woman: Sounds like you're still in love.
Sam: Maybe a little, yeah.
Woman: Any chance of it working out?
Sam: Oh, no. I don't think so. He's a married man. He's got a wife and a couple of small children.
Woman: I admire you for trying to do what's best for the man's children.
Sam: Thank you. So what's the name of the convent where you're going to adopt at?
Sam: It just -- it sounds like they do really good work.
Sam: And I would like to make a contribution.
Skye: Luke, I'm sorry I accused Laura. I didn't even get a good look at the woman, and, from what you tell me, it couldn't possibly be her.
Luke: That's ok. Don't apologize. Somebody's doing a damn fine job of scaring you.
Skye: Not to mention framing me for murder.
Luke: Skye, I couldn't save my wife. I don't know why. But I can sure protect you from whoever this is.
Skye: Oh, Lucky, any sign of her?
Lucky: No, she's gone, but I -- but I found this. It's engraved "L&L," which I guess could mean "Luke & Laura," but I never saw mom wear it.
Luke: I gave it to her.
Jax: Oh, another Corinthos. Can't seem to get away from you people.
Courtney: I am not one of those people.
Emily: It couldn't have been Nikolas. I know that in my head. But I guess in my heart, I just can't let go.
Mary: I know what you mean. The same thing happened to me with Connor.
Emily: I just -- I keep feeling Nikolas' presence, Mary. I just -- and seeing him everywhere. You know, I -- I fell asleep in the church and I dreamed about Nikolas, and we were getting married. And then I woke up and I just -- I had this overwhelming sense that he had actually been there in the church with me.
Mary: That's how much you miss him.
Emily: I think my heart aches so deeply for Nikolas that Iím actually in pain. I think that's why my eyes keep playing tricks on me, why I thought I saw him at the car door after the crash and along the road in the rain. But it -- it was you who rescued me, Mary. Thank you. I don't mean to seem ungrateful. I just --
Mary: No, no. I understand.
[Knock on door]
Jason: How you feeling?
Jason: Yeah, you hit your head. Are you dizzy? You nauseous? Anything?
Emily: No, uh-uh. I think I'm just feeling more ridiculous than anything. I -- I lost control of my car and I put Mary to all of this trouble having to haul me all the way back here. I'm fine.
Jason: Yeah, I saw your car. It's more than a mile down the road. I mean, you couldn't have carried Emily back here. How'd she get here?
Mary: I was driving by when I saw Emilyís car on the side of the road. I managed to get her in the passenger seat and drove home.
Jason: Well, I'm going to carry you out of here, ok?
Emily: I didn't hurt my legs, Jase. I'm fine.
Jason: Well, will you at least lean on me so I can help you?
Emily: Yeah, I think I can manage.
Jason: All right, come on. Oh, yeah.
Emily: All right.
Jason: Just be careful.
Emily: Thanks, Mary. Thank you.
Mary: You're welcome. I'm glad you're ok.
Emily: Thank God Mary drove by and found me. Lorenzo Alcazar?
Jason: Yeah, I wonder what it was doing at Maryís house.
Emily: I don't know. Come on.
Mary: You can come out now. They're gone.
Nikolas: Who was that guy?
Mary: Emily's brother.
Nikolas: Was he questioning you?
Mary: Yeah, a little. Why, how much did you hear?
Nikolas: Well, I was tempted to eavesdrop, but the last time I tried to do that, I almost gave myself away, so I just sat on the floor out of sight of the window, waiting to hear from you.
Mary: I'm glad. It's better if Emily doesn't know you're here.
Luke: Yeah. This is the bracelet I took with me the last time I visited her. It's identical to one I gave her shortly after we were married. I was hoping that seeing it might jog her memory, maybe help -- help her bridge the gap in her mind between then and now. I was hoping she would come back to me. But she was too far gone.
Lucky: Maybe she's not as far gone as we thought.
Jax: Well, it sounds like we've had the same kind of day.
Courtney: I doubt it.
Jax: You were fighting with your brother, I assume?
Courtney: Look, Jax, I can't pick my family, but I can pick my friends, and you're not one of them.
Jax: Look, I'm sorry. I know that you've had your problems with Sonny in the past, and from the few conversations that we've had, it's clear that you have morals and values that Sonny doesn't really understand.
Courtney: Yeah, how is this any of your business?
Jax: No, it's not. I'm just saying, you know, don't let Sonny or Jason get to you. Just keep standing up for what you believe in.
Courtney: Mm-hmm. Ok, yeah. Next time, you can save the little sermon because I don't believe a word of it.
Jax: Sounded good to me.
Mike: Where's Courtney?
Jax: I don't know. I guess she had to leave.
Mike: But a Philly cheese steak is her favorite dinner.
Jax: Well, what a coincidence, because it happens to be mine, as well.
Sonny: Hey, listen, Sam McCall left town. I need you to find her as soon as possible.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Sage: I guess we're going to be working together.
Georgie: Not until we've cleared a few things up.
Lorenzo: Are you happy living a lie with Sonny?
Sonny: I want the boys to be happy.
Carly: And what about you and me?
Sam: I'm pregnant and I can't keep the baby.
Sonny: We need to find Sam and figure out if she's carrying my child.
