Luke: Skye, it's me! Skye, I was a jerk, a total jerk. I'm sorry. Please, let me in. Let me try to explain!
[Knock on door]
Mary: I don't believe it.
Emily: Let me help you.
Mary: I'm such a klutz.
Emily: People drop things. It's no big deal.
Mary: I have been trying to keep my mind off it all day, and I thought if I worked this double shift, then --
Emily: Mary, just tell me.
Mary: Today was my wedding anniversary.
Officer: Un momento, por favor.
Nikolas: Is there a problem?
Officer: Can I see your passport, please?
Nikolas: Yeah, certainly.
Officer: We have a few questions for you.
Lorenzo: Carly, I know why Sonny went after Sam.
Carly: Yeah, so do I. He wants to go after his girlfriend.
Lorenzo: No, it's more complicated than you realize. Sam is pregnant with Sonny's child.
Carly: Well, that explains everything.
Sam: The baby is mine, and I haven't heard either one of you say how I fit into this child's life.
Sonny: Whatever happens, I will provide for this baby. That's --
Jax: This place arranges adoptions. Now, you were planning to come here and have the child and give it up, weren't you? But if the child is mine, then I --
Sam: The child is mine, and I will decide what's best for it! In the meantime, the two of you can go to hell!
[Sam screams and falls down stairs]
Sonny: Sam? Sam? Get a doctor, Jax.
Jax: Don't move her. You don't know how bad --
Sonny: Get a damn doctor now!
Nun: Get away from that woman. Oh -- oh, dear. You're going to be all right. You're safe here. Who are you?
Jax and Sonny: The baby's father.
Mary: No, I shouldn't tell you this. It's not fair.
Emily: Well, you'd rather drop files all night? Come on, Mary, what do you remember the most about your wedding day?
Mary: Everything. It was perfect.
Emily: Details, Mary. I need details.
Mary: Ok, well, Connor came into my room that morning. I looked awful. It was so humid out, my hair was a frizzy mess, and -- and he brought me coffee and a candy bar to calm me down.
Emily: Did it work?
Mary: Not for a second, no. And I told him that it was bad luck for him to see me the day of the wedding. And he kissed me and he promised that everything was going to be all right. Connor didn't believe in luck. Neither did I back then on that perfect day.
Emily: Hold on to that day, Mary. Picture every moment.
Mary: Connor just wanted to be a good husband and a good provider. He was going to be in the marines for 20 years and then he was going to retire, and we were going to open up this -- this little shop and sell his carvings and furniture and maybe a few gifts, but -- I didn't care. I didn't care what we did or where we were, as long as I was with him.
Emily: Sounds like a nice man.
Mary: He wouldn't want me to be alone.
Emily: Mary, you aren't alone. Connor loves you as much today as he did on your wedding day, and you'll always have that love in your heart.
Mary: It's not the same.
Emily: Yeah, not even close. But it's all you have. It's all we have. And, you know, the more that I can let go of that pain, the more I can feel the love Nikolas has for me, no matter where he is.
Nikolas: I'm willing to cooperate fully, of course, but I am on a tight schedule, so --
Officer: What is your purpose here in Costa Rica?
Officer: Of what sort?
Nikolas: Various financial issues. The papers are self-explanatory. I also visited the Lady of Our Blessed Child. It's a convent in San Salida.
Officer: Why did you do this?
Nikolas: My wife and I are -- are considering adoption. If a plane inspection is needed, please start immediately, if you could.
Officer: Are you giving me an order?
Nikolas: No, I would just rather not be late for my meeting in New York.
Officer: That is not our concern.
Nikolas: You know, I'm considering building a factory here, and the Costa Rican Financial Board assured me Iíd have a favorable business environment. But in light of all this, I may be forced to reconsider. Thank you.
Officer: You're not going anywhere, Mr. Bishop -- or whatever your real name is.
Carly: So that's why Sam left town. Hell, that's why she got pregnant in the first place -- so Sonny would go running after her.
Lorenzo: She went straight to a convent for unwed mothers.
Carly: Oh, that is so -- that is so Sonny. I mean, how could he not go after her, right? I mean, are you serious? A convent?
Carly: Talk about your Madonna whore.
Lorenzo: Sam is putting the child up for adoption.
Carly: Oh, no she's not. Sam is working Sonny for everything that he is worth. There is no way Sonny's going to let her give up that child.
Lorenzo: I just thought you needed to know.
Carly: "Things have gotten complicated." That's what he told me. He said, "Things with Sam -- they're -- they're unresolved."
Lorenzo: Carly, you deserve better than this.
Carly: I don't know. Maybe karma just really does exist. Maybe -- maybe what goes around really comes around. You know, I've pulled some crazy stunts with Michael. You have no idea -- the lying, the conniving, all the misery I caused people -- maybe it's payback.
Lorenzo: You have already paid far too much to be in this relationship.
Carly: I shacked up with my mother's husband. I destroyed her marriage. I got pregnant by a man that I hardly knew. I drugged Michaelís biological father, and I threw him in a dumpster and I left him in an alley --
Lorenzo: I'm sure that you had a very good reason for --
Carly: No, you have no idea because you didn't know me then! I did anything to get what I wanted, and it is just like Sam.
Lorenzo: And what was it that you wanted so badly?
Carly: A family. Isn't that ironic?
Lorenzo: Obviously, I think you should leave Sonny. But I'm telling you right now, he's not going to leave you. In fact, he'll probably lose interest in Sam once the baby is born.
Carly: What -- what are you saying? What is that supposed to mean?
Lorenzo: When the child arrives, this isn't about Sonny anymore. All of his guilt, his suffering -- they become irrelevant. He's not going to change, Carly. He keeps making the same mistakes over and over and over again. He's obsessed with having children. Then when they arrive, he doesn't take care of them.
Carly: He is a good father to Michael and Morgan.
Lorenzo: He kept your children away from you for weeks. He drove Michael to desperate measures. He forced you to move back into this house, and now he can't be bothered. Carly, think about it. When was the last time Sonny spent an entire day with the boys? Or with you? Hmm? Children cramp his style. They steal his attention, so he has to create another crisis, starring himself. And the only person that suffers is you.
Carly: But he loves Michael and Morgan.
Lorenzo: Then where is he?
Lorenzo: Hmm? You don't owe anything to Sonny. The two of you don't love each other. You're not happy living here. So leave, Carly. Take advantage of this situation. Move out before he comes back.
Michael: Leave my mother alone. Go away.
Jason: I didn't -- I didn't lie to you.
Nun: Yes, you did -- a lie of omission, and you know it. You allowed me to believe that you were the father of Samanthaís baby, and look what happened. If you would have been honest with me, she wouldn't have fallen. She wouldn't be in the infirmary right now, praying to god not to lose her child. I don't respond well to the silent treatment. Obviously, you know these men. Who are they?
Jason: I work for Sonny Corinthos.
Nun: Corinthos -- the tall, blond one?
Jason: No, no, no, the other one.
Nun: Tell me everything you know about these men and, please, don't leave anything out.
Jason: Ok. Jax -- he's the blond one -- he's single. He only wants the baby. He wants no connection to Sam.
Nun: Are you sure?
Jason: Yeah, Jax thinks he's better than Sam. He doesn't believe that she's fit to raise his child.
Nun: Oh. Both men could use a few lessons in humility.
Jason: Sonny is -- is married with two children, but he wants to bring up this child.
Nun: So he expects Samantha to just sign the baby over to him?
Jason: No, no, no. Sonny wants Sam to be a part of this baby's life.
Nun: Oh, how generous, given the fact that she's the child's mother.
Jason: And Sonny will take care of Sam for the rest of her life.
Nun: Let me have this straight -- Mr. Corinthos wants a wife, children, and a mistress on the side, and the other one just wants the baby?
Jason: Yeah, I guess that's right.
Nun: But neither one of them can put anyone's needs above them. Don't you agree?
Jason: Sonny can. Because if this baby is his, he will love it and protect it.
Nun: Is there any chance you could be the father?
Jason: No. No, I'm just here to make sure the baby's all right.
Nun: Because you're the only reasonable person in this crowd, and frankly, that isn't saying much. Samantha is in need of someone -- a good friend -- near her, someone to look after her and her baby. As of now, that person is you.
Jax: You know, Sonny, the more I think about it, you really are a disaster for any woman or child that gets near you.
Sonny: Jax, could you not talk? Thanks.
Jax: If the baby's mine and it's hurt --
Sonny: Could you not think about who the father is for one second?
Jax: What are you saying? You don't care?
Sonny: No, what Iím saying is Sam could be losing the baby.
Sam: Doctor, I didn't think. I just -- I wanted to get away, that's all.
Doctor: Try to relax, huh?
Sam: Please, doctor, is my baby going to be ok?
Carly: You go back upstairs.
Michael: I'm not going anywhere. He is.
Carly: That is not for you to decide.
Michael: Max, I need you!
Carly: Michael! What --
Max: Are you all right?
Carly: Yeah, we're fine.
Michael: Please show Mr. Alcazar the door, and never let him back in my house again.
Carly: Excuse me.
Max: Mrs. C?
Lorenzo: Michael, your father would be very proud of you. You're growing up to be just like him.
Michael: Thank you.
Lorenzo: Good luck.
Carly: Oh, you are in some serious trouble.
Carly: Because you cannot just come charging down those stairs and order adults around, that's why!
Michael: Is it true what he said?
Carly: That you're growing up to be just like your father? Yeah, it is.
Michael: I mean that you and Daddy don't love each other anymore?
Sonny: How is she, doctor?
Jax: Is the baby all right?
Doctor: The mother and baby are both fine.
Sonny: Ok, I'd like to see her if that's all right.
Doctor: Not yet.
Jax: Listen, I have a court order for a paternity test, all right? I want the amnio performed as soon as it's medically feasible, and if the child is mine, I don't want you anywhere near Samantha until the baby's born. You can do whatever you want --
Sonny: Jax, seriously, can you forget who the father is? Let her calm down for a second, will you?
Jason: Sister Agnes wants to see you both.
Sonny: What --
Jason: She's in the garden waiting for you.
Doctor: Are you Jason?
Doctor: She's asking for you.
Jason: Are you all right?
Sam: The baby's ok.
Jason: That's good.
Sam: Jason, I know it's wrong, but I can't stop thinking that if something were to happen to this baby, it would just be so much easier --
Jason: Don't say it, Sam. Sam, don't ever say it.
Sonny: Thank you, Sister, for taking care of Sam.
Jax: Yes, I would like to reimburse any medical expenses --
Sister Agnes: Yeah, yeah, yeah, ok, thank you. You both must be ashamed of yourselves. Hounding a pregnant woman all the way to Costa Rica? Disturbing her in such a way, she fell? And all the while fighting with each other with no concern about Samantha or her child.
Sonny: Well, I -- I care about the baby.
Sister Agnes: Even if the baby's his? You -- you care about yourselves and no one else. You're rich and accustomed to getting what you want. But now you are in my world, and I only care about Samantha and this child. So as long as Samantha is here, I want you two to respect her and accept anything she decides to do with this child.
Sonny: I mean no disrespect, Sister, but a father does have rights.
Jax: And neither one of us will consent to adoption.
Sister Agnes: Listen to you, telling me about your rights, about what you will consent to, about what you won't consent to. With whom do you think you're dealing with? You, a married man who had no business being with Samantha in the first place. Does your wife know you're here? Does she know about the baby? Why do your children have to share you with another child? Especially a child who will always remind them of your moral weaknesses and your infidelity. If you can't honor your commitment with your own family, how can you honor your commitment to this child? And you, a rich playboy who can't be bothered with any kind of commitment, much less the holy state of matrimony. Do you really believe that Samantha was going to sign the baby to you just because you want her to? Are you that selfish, that arrogant? Hasn't it occurred to you that a baby needs a mother? Both of you only care about this child as a reflection of yourselves. If it was up to me, I wouldn't give this child to any one of you. But what I have to do is protect Samantha. So I warn you -- if you upset her in any way, I'm going to call the police in here so fast, it's going to make your heads spin!
Luke: Skye? Skye? Skye! Oh, Laura -- Laura. If it's you who's got her, sweetheart, it's me you're angry at, me you're disappointed in. Don't hurt her. Please, Laura, don't hurt Skye. Come on, you must've left me a clue here somewhere. Oh, that might come in handy. Come on, baby, where's the clues?
Lucky: Dad, what happened? Where's -- where's Skye?
Lucky: What are you doing?
Luke: Trashing the joint.
Lucky: What, you think Mom was here?
Luke: I'm not saying that. All I know is somebody whacked me over the head and grabbed Skye.
Skye: Help! Help me! Help me! Help me!
Jax: I'm glad you're all right.
Sam: Thank you.
Jax: Look, I know that you are confused and emotional, and I don't want to make your life any more difficult, Sam, but I really need to know who the father is.
Sam: What if it's you, Jax?
Jax: Then Iíll make you comfortable during the pregnancy.
Sam: And then what?
Jax: I don't want to put you through a custody trial.
Sam: No, but you just want my kid. You want me to disappear and be nice about it, right?
Jax: Sam, you came here to give the child up for adoption. That's what this place does. Now, if I'm the father, then the child should be with me. You know the baby is going to have a great life, and you don't ever have to worry about money again.
Sam: What, you think I'm just going to sign my baby away for money?
Jax: Come on, Sam, don't kid yourself. You're -- you're impulsive, you're self-centered. I mean, you ran down those -- you ran down those stairs without even --
Sam: Yeah, because I was running away from you!
Jax: Come on, Sam, don't con yourself. Don't lie about who you are or what you want; not when you're responsible for another life.
Jason: What are you going to do?
Sonny: I honestly don't know. Before Sam fell, this baby was an idea, a possibility. Now it's real; it's alive. For whatever reason, God gave this baby another chance. And for all my mistakes and selfishness, if this baby's mine, I have to take responsibility.
Jason: And what about the family you already have?
Michael: Where's Daddy?
Carly: He's out of town.
Michael: Why was Mr. Alcazar here?
Carly: Because he's my friend and because he was concerned about me.
Michael: Why did he say that you and Daddy don't love each other anymore?
Carly: You shouldn't have been eavesdropping.
Michael: You eavesdrop on Daddy all the time.
Carly: That's right, and I don't always get it right, do I? Sweetie, I don't want you listening in on conversations, much less ordering people around.
Michael: Are you mad at me?
Carly: Listen, I do not like what you did, but I still love you. You are the most important thing to Daddy and me -- you and Morgan -- and you always will be. Oh, sweetie. I love you. I have got to get out of this deal with Sonny. It can't work, especially now.
Courtney: Ok, why now? What's going on?
Carly: Sam's pregnant.
Courtney: Oh, God.
Carly: Mm-hmm. She's in a convent in Costa Rica and she wants to put her baby up for adoption.
Courtney: Who told you this?
Courtney: Well, how the hell does he know?
Carly: Who knows? He's got people all over the place.
Courtney: And you believe him?
Carly: Yeah, I do.
Courtney: Ugh -- well, I bet he's loving every minute of this.
Carly: Well, it doesn't matter. It doesn't mean it's not true. What the hell am I supposed to do now, Courtney? Am I supposed to act like everything's just fine? And -- and there's no way that Sonny's going to let her put that kid up for adoption. I can't just pretend everything is fine. This -- this whole situation is going to blow up, and Michael is going to be devastated.
Courtney: Wait, Carly -- Carly, do we know where Jax is?
Carly: Why Jax?
Courtney: Think about it. I mean, why has Jax been so desperate to find Sam? I mean, they've barely spoken for months. Jax must think that the baby is really his, and if that's true, Carly, Sam could be out of your life for good.
Lucky: Dad, would you stop? You're destroying evidence!
Luke: Whatever possible, my son. So, what are you doing here? You just trying to make sure your mother gets sent to prison?
Lucky: No, I'm not.
Luke: Well, you sure as hell spent a lot of time making sure she saw a scenic array of mental institutions, didn't you?
Lucky: Would you just stop it?
Luke: So what now, maybe you're hoping that she can get arrested for kidnapping?
Lucky: Will you just tell me if Skye was in here?
Luke: When I got here, I couldn't get in. Skye was right there on the floor. She wasn't moving.
Lucky: Was she dead?
Lucky: All right, there's no blood, so she wasn't stabbed.
Luke: I'm thinking maybe she was drugged.
Lucky: All right, we can check that.
Luke: "We"? You mean the police? You and the little boys in blue? No, thanks, I'll handle this on my own.
Lucky: Do you even know what you're looking for?
Luke: Yeah! When people try to make it look like somebody else did it, they usually leave traces.
Lucky: Dad, this is -- this is my fault.
Luke: Well, why don't you get on your walkie-talkie and call your little buddies and get some armed backup? Your big, bad mama's out there in the woods probably searching for her next victim!
Lucky: Dad, listen to me -- I'm the reason that Mom escaped! I made her worse. This whole thing is my fault.
Skye: Hey -- hey, let me out! Open the door! Please, please -- I'll give you anything you want. I'll even help you get away. I will. Just -- just let me out, ok? We'll work something out, I swear. Just open the door! Open the damn door!
Mary: Where is he? He should've been back by now. What have you done with my husband?
Lorenzo: Nikolas Cassadine is no more your husband than I am, and I do not appreciate being summoned.
Mary: Where did you send him?
Lorenzo: I'm paying Nikolas well, and I am keeping your secret. That is all the information you need.
Mary: You're using him.
Lorenzo: I am? You stole his life; convinced him he's someone else.
Mary: I didn't mean for things to turn out like this.
Lorenzo: Oh, it's far more complicated than you expected, right?
Lorenzo: Never counted on Nikolas being talented, having opinions of his own, having a world-class education, did you? You never dreamed that he wouldn't fit into the life that you lied about and said was his?
Mary: He loves me.
Lorenzo: He has no choice. You're keeping him from his fiancťe while you're pretending to be her friend? You cut him off from his family. You are standing in the way of a brilliant career, and all for what, because you're afraid to be alone? Because you don't think you can survive without a husband? That's pathetic. You should be grateful to me. I am allowing Nikolas to revisit a life where he belongs, and that might keep him content with you, at least for a little while longer.
Mary: Have you put him in danger?
Lorenzo: All jobs involve some risk.
Mary: I would rather let him go than watch him die working for you.
Mary: Oh, God. Oh, thank God you're safe!
Nikolas: Are you all right?
Mary: I should never have let this happen.
Nikolas: Everything went well. You have nothing to worry about.
Mary: Why were you so late?
Nikolas: I was delayed at the airport.
Lorenzo: Mary asked me to meet her here. She was very concerned. But I'm sure your wife would never stand in the way of your success.
Mary: No, I wouldn't.
Nikolas: Here are your papers.
Lorenzo: That's good. I apologize for the delay at the airport. The line about building a factory in Costa Rica was excellent.
Nikolas: You set me up.
Lorenzo: I told you the first time was a test. I needed to see how you responded to pressure. You handled it very well, and I am sure I will be able to trust you.
Nikolas: Trust works both ways. If you want me to be a courier, I'll do my best. But if you ever set me up again, our association with each other is over. You understand?
Nikolas: Yeah, thank you.
Lorenzo: I'll be in touch.
Mary: How could you ever trust that man?
Nikolas: He's giving me a chance, Mary, and he deserves the same chance from me. Look, I don't have blind faith for Mr. Alcazar, but Iím willing to keep an open mind and see where this leads.
Lucky: I went to the hospital in Montrťal.
Lucky: Not long ago. I thought Mom should know that Nikolas was dead.
Lucky: He's her son, her firstborn. I thought it might help her. Dad, she was staring at a wall. I don't even know if she could hear me, but I told her. There was no reaction. I just -- I just -- I started to leave, and then I -- I just looked back one more time and, Dad, she was crying. I went and I put my arms around her. I just -- I didn't get any reaction.
Luke: Why didn't you tell me this before?
Lucky: I felt guilty enough, and I just didn't want you to think that it was all my fault for telling her about Nikolas.
Luke: Nikolas, you know, that could be it. That could be it. If your mother -- or somebody who wants us to think it's your mother took Skye, I think I know where they are.
Courtney: Of course Sonny didn't tell you Sam is pregnant. I mean, why would he if Jax could be the father? I mean, why get you all upset over nothing?
Carly: That makes some sense.
Courtney: Listen, if Sonny believes the baby is his, he would've told you.
Carly: Oh, I'm not sure about that.
Courtney: Ok, look, Carly, you're only with Sonny because of the kids. You have made that clear. Sonny is going to be honest with you when he finds out if he is the baby's father. And he's not going to let Sam raise his child on her own. And if Jax -- if he is the father -- well, then maybe you and Sonny still have a chance.
Carly: Yeah, and if he isn't? I am not going to live here with Sonny while he's helping Sam to raise that kid.
Nikolas: They were searching the plane, right, and taking far, far too long. I just wanted to hurry back to you. So I had the pilot announce that the Bolivian ambassador was waiting for them at the airport.
Mary: Well, how did you ever think of that?
Nikolas: I can't believe they even fell for it, but, you know, whatever. It got them off the plane, didn't it?
Mary: It sounds so exciting.
Nikolas: I'll make sure the pilot gets a good bonus.
Mary: I'm sorry I overreacted when you were late.
Nikolas: You know, I was very, very impressed that you called Mr. Alcazar yourself. Very impressed.
Mary: Thank you. Well, I needed you here today.
Mary: It's our wedding anniversary.
Nikolas: What -- and you're just -- and you're just now telling me this? What is -- but I could've gotten you a present. What --
Mary: No, it's all right. We were so happy on our wedding day, I just -- I wish you could remember it.
Nikolas: I can't -- haven't we agreed to make new memories?
Mary: Yes. Yes, we have.
Nikolas: Ok. How would you like to be a June bride?
Mary: I'm partial to May.
Nikolas: May? Well, that doesn't give us much time to prepare, does it?
Mary: Well, I have you. What else do I need?
Nikolas: Here, go buy yourself a nice, beautiful dress.
Mary: Oh, you're spoiling me.
Nikolas: So where do you want to go on our honeymoon? We can afford someplace nice. Where do you want to be?
Mary: Right here with you.
Luke: Oh, damn. Laura? Answer me, darling!
Luke: Skye won't hurt you! She isn't the enemy!
Skye: Luke! Luke, I'm in here!
Luke: I can help you, sweetheart.
Luke: It's all right. Just say the word and we'll roll right out of here like always.
Skye: Luke, I'm in here! Luke! Luke! I'm in here! Luke!
Courtney: So, abused kids, runaways, street kids -- anybody. If you put their name in the database, my foundation will find help for them.
Audrey: Well, that is an outstanding idea, but confidentiality could be an issue.
Courtney: Well, I don't want to invade anyone's privacy; I don't. But I want to make sure that none of these kids slip through the cracks in the system.
Audrey: You really are committed to helping these children, aren't you?
Courtney: Somebody has to.
Sam: I can't remember the last time I ate.
Jason: I'll buy you a sandwich after the exam.
Sam: Well, I should probably drink a glass of milk, though, right? I don't like milk. Actually, I hate milk. What if the fall hurt the baby, Jason?
Jason: No, the doctor said you're all right.
Sam: Ok. I know it's dumb to insist on another exam, but I want to be sure, ok? I just -- I want to make sure he didn't miss anything really important.
Courtney: It happens a lot, doesn't it? You know, parents make a bad choice and then the kids have to pay for it.
Audrey: Yes, Iím afraid so.
Courtney: Well, I want to help as many of these kids as possible. Every baby deserves to feel wanted and loved by somebody.
Audrey: Well, I'll start working on that clearance for the database.
Courtney: Ok, great.
Audrey: All right.
Audrey: See you later.
Carly: I didn't expect you home so soon.
Sonny: The boys all right?
Carly: Yeah, they're sleeping.
Sonny: I'll check on them later.
Carly: Did you -- did you find Sam?
Sonny: Yeah. Um -- she's pregnant.
Carly: I know.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Courtney: Why are you protecting Sam?
Jax: How much money do you want?
Sam: What did you just say to me?
Sonny: The child exists.
Carly: You have walked into the oldest trick in the book.
