Dillon: Ok, now remember, it's the 1940s, so, you know, you're in a smoky cabaret. Think of, like, a torch singer, all right? You're going to slowly turn around and we're going to reveal you, ok?
Singers: Here we are what you gonna do when we get up in your face? Yeah here we are what you gonna do about it? Here we are what you gonna say? Here we are what you gonna do when we get up in your face now? Here we are what you gonna do?
Sage: So? How do I look?
Dillon: You are perfection. You look exquisite. No, I'm serious, that's exactly what I pictured.
Courtney: Rosie? Rosie? Damn it, where are you?
Jax: Over here!
Courtney: Oh, bad girl. How many times do I have to tell you not to run away from me? Thanks for bringing her back.
Jax: Well, you shouldn't be so hard on her. You know, she actually saved me a phone call. I have a mutually beneficial offer to propose.
Sam: Hello. Goodbye.
Jason: Where do you -- wait, wait, whoa, whoa. Where do you think you're going?
Sam: I don't think Iím going anywhere. I'm going to my boat to do some work.
Jason: Not until you've had something to eat.
Sam: I already ate.
Jason: What, an apple? Or did you crack open a beer, because I happen to know those are the only things left in my fridge.
Sam: No, I had an apple, and I had to practically choke it down because mornings aren't my favorite time to eat anymore.
Jason: Ok, I understand, but, Sam, you got to think about this baby and the nutrition. What did the doctor say, folic acid and calcium?
Sam: Please, Jason, come on, you're going to make me puke. Stop it.
Jason: Ok, now, you want a glass of milk. I'm going to make you some scrambled eggs. You like cheese?
Sam: No, no, Jason, I would like for you to leave me alone. I am perfectly capable of monitoring my own eating schedule and every other aspect of this pregnancy without your input. I am sick of everyone trying to run my life, so just back the hell off.
Sonny: Ok, champ. Go upstairs, get your backpack. You don't want to be late first day of school, do you?
Carly: You excited?
Michael: It'll be fun.
Sonny: Yeah? Get going. He likes school, you know. God knows I never did.
Carly: Then there's me, the worst student in the history of Florida. Thanks for coming with us today.
Sonny: Of course I'm going. I mean, you know, meeting with his teachers after Michaelís been sick for so long is important to me. And, you know, my commitment to you and the family is -- it's not going to change.
Carly: Maybe not yet, but as soon as Sam --
Sonny: You all set, schoolboy?
Michael: Let's go.
Carly: Are yo sure you have everything?
Michael: Mom --
Michael: You packed my bag last night.
Carly: So I did. Ok, let's go.
Sonny: Let's get. Come on.
Sam: I am pregnant, Jason. It's a perfectly natural state of being. There is a baby inside me, not a fatal disease, so stop trying to ram eggs down my throat, thank you.
Michael: Why is Sam pregnant?
Michael: Why is Sam at your house?
Jason: She's -- uh -- staying with me for a little while, Michael.
Michael: Why? Sam's mean. She makes Mommy sad.
Sonny: Ok, Mike, Mike, listen, you don't want to step out of line now.
Michael: Make her go away. She's not Daddy's girlfriend anymore.
Sonny: Michael --
Michael: She doesn't belong here.
Sonny: Mike -- Michael. You apologize to Sam.
Michael: I don't want to!
Sonny: This rudeness is unacceptable. You understand me?
Michael: I'm sorry.
Sam: It's ok. So am I.
Sonny: Mike, come here. I know that this is complicated. It's a very difficult situation. That's why Iím going to take you for a little walk in the park, ok, and Iím going to do my best to explain to you in a way that you understand.
Michael: What about school?
Sonny: We can -- you go back to school tomorrow, ok? This takes priority.
Michael: You coming, Mommy?
Sonny: Look, this is Daddy's problem, ok? It's not up to Mommy to explain to you what's going on here. It's up to me, ok? Let's go.
Michael: Bye, Mommy.
Carly: Bye. I love you.
Michael: I love you.
Dillon: Ok, so this guy cannot believe what he is seeing. You are the most beautiful thing that he has ever laid eyes on. Now, you don't notice him because you're all, you know, swept away in the song. You're thinking about the song, but the minute you open your eyes, it's like -- bam! -- Instant chemistry, ok? It's like electricity. Now, you can't stop looking at each other. Every word that you sing, everything that comes out of your pie hole is --
Dillon: I'm serious -- is directed towards him.
Dillon: I'm talking from the first time that you guys meet in the bar to the kiss on the bridge, you guys are -- you're constantly -- you're working on each other, ok, you're toying with each other. It's like this uncontrollable force that neither of you can deny.
Sage: Oh, it's so romantic. I love it! I just -- I hope Iím up for the challenge.
Dillon: Oh, you are, you are, ok?
Sage: Uncle Lorenzo! Did you hear?
Lorenzo: I certainly did. You look great.
Sage: Thanks! It's going to be so awesome. Dillon and I are completely in sync.
Sage: I'm excited.
Dillon: Hey! Ned!
Sage: Hi, Ned.
Ned: Lorenzo. So, what do you think of the video prep so far?
Lorenzo: Seems to be going well. Music videos aren't exactly my expertise. My only concern is that Sage enjoys herself.
Ned: Well, she looks like she's enjoying herself from here.
Lorenzo: You keep that smile on her face. You make sure she feels supported and valued; I'll make sure you're happy with whatever funding you need.
Ned: Well, get ready to ante up, because Iím confident that Dillon is going to make this the best experience of Sage's life.
Lorenzo: Well, so far.
Sage: I'm sorry. Ok, ok. Better?
Faith: Don't you look inspiring.
Faith: The conscientious public servant hard at work, keeping Port Charles safe for its taxpaying citizens.
Ric: What do you want, Faith?
Faith: Well, to offer my personal thanks, of course. We both know that if you had fought Alexis on the continuance she suggested, I would be in Pentonville. So why the sudden attack of mercy? Is it because you have a soft spot for me, or my attorney?
Ric: Ms. Davis just made a compelling argument to delay the trial.
Faith: Yeah. We both know that the only reason you are taking this case to court is to get under Alexis' skin.
Ric: That's not the only reason.
Faith: What angle are you working here?
Faith: Alexis clearly isn't your type. Of course, she wasn't Sonny's type, either, and he managed to take her over the moon at least once. Of course.
Ric: What? What?
Faith: Sonny seduced the unseduceable. He got the most repressed, neurotic, romance-challenged woman in town into bed, and you have to prove you can do the same.
Ric: Ok. You know what, Faith; I don't why I'm going to give you this advice, but pay attention. You shouldn't be walking around the streets free, so don't question it or else somebody might change their mind and put you in prison where you belong. Ok?
Jax: I want to be clear and upfront so there aren't any misunderstandings down the line. I want to be more than just a figurehead on the board of your foundation.
Courtney: Meaning what?
Jax: Meaning I want input into the programs and also decide or have a say in what children are selected as beneficiaries.
Courtney: In other words, you want to take over.
Jax: No, no, I just want a voice.
Courtney: Mm-hmm. Well, you say that now, Jax, but why should I trust you?
Jax: Well, firstly, because I'm excited. It's a worthy cause and it will annoy the hell out of Tracy.
Jax: And secondly, you don't really have a choice because there are not a surplus of philanthropists who are willing to lend not only their name but a substantial financial contribution to the startup of a charity created by a crime lord's sister.
Courtney: He charmingly reminds her, thanks. All right, fine, Iíll be in my office all day. Why don't you call my assistant and set up a time to stop by and we'll hammer out the parameters.
Jax: Well, I think perhaps that you should call me, since I'm the one doing the favor.
Courtney: Yeah, well, you never know. It could turn out to be the other way around. Come on, Rosie.
Sam: Are you starting to get an inkling on how truly rotten my luck is? What are the odds of me saying I was pregnant with Michael standing right there?
Jason: You have to consider them pretty high since you're staying right across the hall.
Sam: Well, it was obviously an ill-advised move, if not plain stupid. Then again, what else is new with my life when it comes to the bad decisions that I have been making?
Jason: Ok. I think you need to rest. Sit down, take a couple deep breaths. You've been in fifth gear all morning.
Carly: You manipulative little bitch. If you ever try to hurt one of my children again, I will happily dismantle your life and let the pieces fall where they may.
Lorenzo: I like Dillon. He's smart, he's ambitious, but he's completely unproven as a director. If I have a reservation, that would be it.
Ned: Well, I can certainly understand your reservation, and I think I can assuage it. I have a lot of confidence in Dillonís ability, but if he falters or stumbles in any way, I've got a call in to a big-time director, Skippy Ludel.
Lorenzo: Should I be impressed?
Ned: Yeah. Skippy Ludel is probably the preeminent video director of the day.
Ned: And he's already agreed to step in, but I don't think he's going to have to. I really don't.
Dillon: Guys? Hi. I couldn't help but overhear your conversation. I just want to come over here and assure you both that Iím going to make the most out of this -- not just for me, but for Sage, too. She's absolutely incredible. Her voice has been blowing me away lately, and Iím going to -- no, you know what, I have to give her the very best I have to offer.
Lorenzo: I'm glad to hear that.
Sage: Just trust us, Uncle Lorenzo, Dillon and I are about to totally rock the world, huh?
Dillon: Yeah, I really think you're going to dig where we're going to go with this.
Georgie: Maxie, I need your help. This is the biggest emergency ever.
[Knock on door]
Alexis: Hi, Courtney. Your assistant said it was ok to come in?
Courtney: Sure. Can I -- can I do something for you?
Alexis: Jax hired me to do some legal work for him. He said that he's participating in a nonprofit foundation that you're working on?
Courtney: Yeah, that's right.
Alexis: His primary concern is that it remains legitimate, so that would mean excluding your brother and your ex-husband and, of course, any monetary contributions that they would make.
Courtney: Ok, look, I have been over this with Jax. I assured him that Sonny and Jason have no involvement with the foundation. Either he believes me or he doesnít.
Jax: Of course I believe you. Courtney's reason for bringing me in was legitimacy.
Alexis: Well, all right, then. That's good. We're all on the same page. So the next thing we need to talk about is Carly, so we need to discount her participation, as well.
Alexis: She's Sonny's wife and she's also a criminal in her own right.
Courtney: Carly is also my closest friend, and if she chooses to take an active part in the foundation, I will welcome her help. If either of you disagree with that, the door works both ways.
Alexis: Here's my advice -- if Courtney sticks to this position, she's not going to be able to achieve her goals, as admirable as they are, without the specter of the mob hovering over every move that she makes. My advice is that this is brewing trouble that you neither need or want.
[Knock on door]
Ric: Courtney. I'd like a minute of your time, please.
Courtney: Who said it was ok for you to barge into my office in the middle of a meeting?
Ric: Well, your assistant wasn't at her desk. I'm here on official business. I have reason to believe you're starting up a nonprofit corporation for the purposes of money laundering.
Carly: You run all the scams that you want on Jax and Sonny. Trap them, trick them, lie to them. More power to you. They deserve whatever they get for thinking with the lower half of their anatomy. But Michael is a little boy and he almost died less than a month ago, and I will not have him upset by you.
Sam: Do you really think I meant to blurt out I was pregnant in front of your little boy?
Carly: You want Sonny, and you have proven you will do anything to get him, including and up to causing so much dissension among this family that there is no possible way that we can stay together. But you know what? It is not going to work. I am in this equation now to protect my children and my family from the likes of you, and I will do anything that I can till my last breath.
Jason: Ok, Carly, that's enough, all right? Sam made a mistake. You jumped all over her. Just let it be done now.
Carly: What -- what did you say?
Jason: You heard me, Carly.
Carly: No, no, no, no, I couldn't have. How can you be siding with her?
Jason: I'm not taking anybody's side.
Carly: Jason -- Jason, you and I have been best friends for years. We have been to hell and back together. How can you turn on me now?
Sonny: Now, I understand why you don't like Sam. Ok? Your mom and I were fighting and, you know, she seemed to be the reason, but I'm telling you right now that's not the case. Your mom and I were fighting because of things that happened between us. Sam had nothing to do with that.
Michael: Then why does she have to be around?
Sonny: Sam's my friend, ok? Remember when your mom and I were mad at each other, Sam was there? She was kind and she -- you know, she made your daddy feel better when he was lonely and sad. I just can't be rude to her now. And I don't expect you to. Sam's a good person caught up in a complicated situation.
Michael: You promised Morgan, Mommy, and me we'd live together as a family again.
Sonny: That hasn't changed, buddy.
Michael: Then why did you make another baby with Sam?
Maxie: Hey. You sure we're all alone in here?
Georgie: Yeah. Ned and Mr. Alcazar left, and Sage asked Dillon to help with a wardrobe adjustment, which is just another lame, pointless excuse to put her hands all over my boyfriend. I can't take it anymore, Maxie. I canít.
Maxie: Don't worry, Georgie, ok? Your brilliant sister is about to solve all of your problems.
Georgie: Are you sure that this is going to work? It seems iffy. Like, so many things could go wrong with this.
Maxie: No way, it's simple, and that is the whole beauty of it, ok? Sage -- she's going to come out here to rehearse her stupid little dance steps, she's going to move closer and closer to the ladder until -- oops -- the ladder tips, the paint spills. It's an instant diva fit. I mean, she's going to go on one of those little tantrums, calling Dillon a useless moron, and then she'll go cry to her uncle and get Dillon called off the project. It'll work, trust me.
Georgie: I'm starting to rethink this, Maxie. I mean, Dillonís big dream is to be a director, and if Ned has to call in the famous director Skippy whoever, then Dillonís going to be crushed.
Maxie: Exactly. And who do you think is going to be there to console him?
Georgie: But I feel so guilty.
Maxie: You'll get over it once you're the center of Dillonís world again.
Dillon: Ok, are you ready to do a run-through?
Sage: Let me at it.
Dillon: I'm digging your enthusiasm. I am digging it. We're going to make some serious magic together today. You ready?
Dillon: Are you ready? Go to your mark.
Dillon: Hey, Maxie. Ok. Georgie, can we have some music, please? Let us run this bad boy.
Singer: Who can drive me up the wall?
Alexis: Why is it that you eventually always show up wherever I am?
Ric: Well, I think you need to ask yourself that question. I assume that you filed all the appropriate paperwork to set up this foundation of yours?
Courtney: Of course, through my attorney.
Ric: Good. I'll need to see copies, just to make sure that the information you submitted is correct.
Alexis: That is not your job. Checking incorporation papers is the job of the state attorney general's office. Now, if this were a criminal matter, I would expect someone from the PCPD fraud unit to maybe show up and take a look -- which is still not your job because you are the D.A. --
Alexis: As woefully incompetent as you are at that job.
Alexis: But your job is to prosecute cases that already exist.
Ric: Well, I'm at least competent enough to come close to getting a conviction on your latest criminal client, Faith Rosco -- that is, before you panicked --
Alexis: I did not panic at all.
Ric: Then why the stall, Alexis? Why did you file a continuance in the middle of a trial? If you're so confident in your litigation skills, it'd already be to the jury by now -- unless, of course, you're just trying to stay in close proximity to me.
Alexis: All right, do you have any concept of how obnoxious you actually are?
Ric: Look, you are painfully transparent in this. You extend the Rosco matter, and then you insert yourself into Courtneyís foundation, knowing full well I'm going to investigate. I mean, what's next, Alexis, bubblegum on my chair?
Courtney: Ok, you know what, I'm sure Jax is just as fascinated as I am with all this, but what does it have to do with the charity?
Ric: Nothing at all. This is Ms. Davis' vain attempt at a mating dance.
Sonny: Ok -- uh -- your daddy made a big mistake, and there's a special test Samís taking right now that will be able to figure out if Iím the father of this baby.
Michael: I hope you're not.
Sonny: But if -- if I am the father, I'm going to need your help.
Sonny: Well, I need you to try and be a good brother to this baby like you are with Morgan.
Michael: Are you going to ask Sam and the new baby to come live with you and send Mommy and Morgan and me out again?
Sonny: Mike, I'd never do that. I can't tell you exactly what's going to happen, but I will tell you what's not going to happen. We are a family. That's not going to change. I'm going to try to figure out a way to make this work for everybody. Can you trust me on that?
Michael: Yeah, Dad.
Sonny: Ah. I -- I'm going to fix it, I promise. Ok?
Carly: You have been mad at me before, Jason. You have yelled, you have screamed, you have slammed doors, you've called me crazy. But you've never abandoned me until now, and for her?
Jason: That's not what Iím doing.
Carly: You are siding with Sam. You're giving her every benefit of the doubt and you are jumping to her defense when I need you more.
Jason: I have not turned against you, Carly. I understand that you're hurt and that you're upset, and I want your family together, but you of all people should understand that mistakes get made. Women get pregnant when nobody meant for it to happen. This isn't about blaming anyone. All that matters now is this kid.
Carly: Right. Ok, you're right. At least we agree on that -- the children do take priority, and that includes Michael and Morgan. So since you've made yourself responsible for Sam, keep her the hell away from my kids.
[Door opens and slams]
Sam: Ok. That went well, huh?
Jason: Sam, you know what, I don't blame you for getting pregnant, but Carly was right about one thing -- you need to be more aware of Sonny's family. You can't just start running your mouth whenever you feel like it.
Sam: Why doesn't anyone understand that I am not trying to cause any trouble or hurt anyone here, Jason? Ok. Ok, I see it now. This has to be resolved. The uncertainty is wrecking all of our lives. I am taking that paternity test today. We're going to find out who the father of this baby is one way or another.
