Flight attendant: We anticipate a smooth flight to Las Rocas, Mexico, so sit back and enjoy the flight. Please let us know if there's anything we can do to make you more comfortable.
Emily: You know, if Nikolas were on this trip that he planned, he'd be appalled.
Lucky: Traveling in economy? They were jammed like sardines back there.
Emily: No proper luggage rack.
Lucky: Oh my God. Can you imagine the look on his face when that flight attendant would be handing him a bag of peanuts or a soda in a plastic cup?
Emily: He would have thanked her graciously before passing out in shock.
Mary: Maybe we should've taken a regular airline to Mexico.
Nikolas: Oh, and pass up Alcazar's offer to use his private jet? Come on.
Mary: It just makes me feel a little uncomfortable.
Nikolas: Well, I want my bride-to-be to get accustomed to traveling in style.
Mary: I don't need all this, Connor. You don't have to pamper me.
Nikolas: Yeah, well, this is just the beginning. I can't wait to get you to Las Rocas and renew our wedding vows.
Courtney: Jason, what happened to your face?
Jason: Sonny hit me.
Courtney: Sonny? Why?
Jason: Sam -- she told Sonny that -- that I'm the father of her baby.
Courtney: So Sam lied to Sonny, and he took her word over yours? How can he -- I don't -- how could he do that after all the loyalty you have shown him?
Jason: Because it's true. I'm the father.
Michael: But Uncle Jason loves Aunt Courtney, and she loves Uncle Jason. So why did he make a baby with Sam?
Carly: Um -- you know, sweetheart, sometimes grownups just -- they do things even they don't understand.
Michael: I don't get it. If Uncle Jason stops loving Aunt Courtney, why does he love Sam?
Carly: Sweetie, he doesn't love Sam. Sam's not Jason’s type.
Sam: Figured it would be you or Carly. Come in.
Sonny: Is Jason here?
Sam: No, no. He went to go look for Courtney.
Sonny: Well, it makes sense.
Sam: I'm glad you're here, Sonny. I -- I -- wanted to ask you something.
Sonny: Ask me anything you want.
Sam: Jason believes this arrangement -- me living here, pretending he's the father -- is the best thing for the baby. Do you agree?
Sonny: I hate everything about this.
Sam: Then why are you going along with it? Why not just tell the truth?
Sonny: Don't you think I want to?
Luke: I want an immediate arraignment.
Alexis: That is an exercise in futility. You are being charged with aiding and abetting Laura escaping authorities, as well as accessory to murder. You need to plead not guilty. I will petition for bail, and then Lansing will launch into a monologue about your countless criminal activities.
Luke: Which you'll counter with an equally impassioned monologue about my sterling and peculiar character.
Alexis: You have jumped bail so many times. There isn't a judge on this planet that wouldn't remand you to custody before trial.
Luke: So what are you saying? You're going to let Lansing -- this -- this bully -- just make you back down?
Alexis: I'm facing the facts.
Luke: I don't know anybody who can massage a fact like you can. Come on, Natasha, don't let this oily D.A. just -- just walk all over both of us. Come on, come on.
Alexis: Don't expect a miracle. I want an arraignment for Luke immediately.
Ric: Are you so desperate for an evening with me that you're willing to waste everybody's time by jumping to this foregone conclusion that I'm going to say yes?
Alexis: Are you so intimidated by my skills as a jurist that you need more time to prepare?
Skye: Bad idea. Very bad idea.
Luke: What's a bad idea?
Skye: Oh, are you kidding me? I can almost hear the short-circuiting of your overheated little brain right now. You think you're going to escape here, dodging police bullets, have your little rendezvous with Laura, and then ride off into the sunset.
Luke: Lucky guess.
Skye: Yeah, well, you're dreaming. Even you can't escape a guarded courtroom.
Luke: It's going to be risky. That's why I need your help.
Skye: What? Forget it! There's no way I'm helping you break out of here.
Luke: You haven't even heard the plan.
Skye: There is no plan.
Luke: Give me a minute!
Skye: No, Luke, that is it, ok? That is enough. This is where I get off.
Tracy: You can tell the board members that I will be there in a few minutes. Thank you. Oh, hello my darling.
Jax: So what is this so-called emergency about, Tracy?
Tracy: You and I are going to get our marriage license tomorrow. I want you to meet me at the courthouse at 9:00 A.M. sharp.
Jax: I have no intention of returning your calls, let alone marrying you.
Tracy: Ready to throw Skye to the wolves, are you?
Jax: Well, actually, Skye is no longer a murder suspect in the Ross Duncan case. You see, ahem, they proved that she was set up by someone. Presumably, you know, somebody even nastier than you, since you merely exploited the situation, or perhaps you stabbed the detective yourself as part of your husband-hunting scheme.
Tracy: Don't be ridiculous.
Jax: This cat-and-mouse game is over, Tracy. You have no leverage. I can finally get on with other matters.
Tracy: Other matters or other women?
Tracy: Explain something to me -- why would you discard a woman of substance, such as myself, in favor of a dewy-eyed lightweight like Courtney Morgan?
Jax: Why not?
Courtney: So -- so what happens from here?
Jason: Sam's moving in with me.
Courtney: Are you going to marry her?
Jason: I don't know. We're just taking this step by step.
Courtney: Thank you for delivering the news in person. I don't think I would have believed it from anyone else.
Jason: I'm sorry.
Courtney: Don't be. You're going to be a wonderful father, Jason, and I'm sure you'll be happy.
Jason: Courtney, wait a minute. I can't leave it like this. I need to explain.
Sonny: I'm a very religious person, and I made that promise to God and to Michael that I was going to, you know, keep this family together, and I knew that I had to keep my word.
Sam: I understand. I mean, it's not like you and I planned this pregnancy. You shouldn't have to rearrange your life to take care of a baby you didn't even want.
Sonny: Well, it's not that I didn't want the baby. I mean, I want the baby. It's just I don't know how I'm going to, you know, live across the hall from you and our child and just pretend that I don't want to be a part of this baby's life.
Luke: You owe me this, Blaze.
Skye: Oh, don't even start.
Luke: Who was it that wouldn't leave a burning hotel until he could coax a certain redhead out? I literally kept you from going up in flames.
Skye: Yeah, you saved my life, ok? It's true. And now I'm trying to save yours. I'm telling you, this -- this is crazy -- this rescue plan you have for Laura. It's a kamikaze mission, Luke. It's not going to do you any good. The only thing that’s going to do is get you --
Alexis: The arraignment's been set for tonight.
Luke: Nice work.
Alexis: I'm telling you, a judge is not going to let you out on bail. It's a temporary change of scenery, that's it.
Luke: Listen, I'll take whatever I can get.
Tracy: Why would a sophisticated man like you be interested in a stripper?
Jax: Is it really such a mystery?
Tracy: Has she already bankrupted her so-called foundation? Run afoul of the I.R.S.? Perhaps she's on the verge of a nervous collapse.
Jax: No, none of the above.
Tracy: Well, it has to be something. You are hideously addicted to damsels in distress.
Jax: Oh, no, see I actually fired myself from that position, and I sold my white horse to the circus, and I've donated my armor to the Camelot museum. They loved it.
Tracy: No kidding?
Tracy: No more chivalrous acts?
Jax: No. Nobility's overrated, you know? It's boring.
Tracy: Well, don't tell me you're as cynical as I am.
Jax: God, I hope not.
Tracy: Oh, Jax, just admit it; we are perfect for each other. We have no scruples. We have no illusions. Just two risk-takers against the world.
Jax: Tracy, Tracy, Tracy. There's just one small problem with that. I don't like you.
Tracy: Maybe you don't know me well enough.
Jax: Perhaps I know you too well.
Tracy: Ok, Jax, Courtney is likeable, I'll give you that.
Tracy: But "nice" is a nonevent. She is a cookie-cutter beauty, as well. There's a thousand of her on every beach in California. So what is the attraction, aside from the obvious thrill of annoying Sonny and Jason?
Jax: Now you're getting the hang of it. Besides, Courtney, she's -- she's beautiful, she's smart, she's -- she's sexy. She's really fun to be around.
Tracy: The perfect candidate for a wifey-poo?
Jax: Oh, no, no, no. I've had my share of those. I'm not looking for happily ever after.
Tracy: Live for today? Eat, drink, and be merry?
Jax: See, I'm just trying to live up to my reputation that I established a long time ago -- international playboy, with the emphasis on "play."
Courtney: I'm pretty clear on what happened. Sam got pregnant sometime in February, she started up with Sonny, and then she slept with Jax the night of the fire. I just -- I don't know where you fit in.
Jason: You know what? The details don't matter. There's a baby now, and I have to take care of it.
Courtney: Yeah, of course you do. But anyway, it's not like you were unfaithful. You know, we've been separated for months, and I'd already dated another man, and I was sending you mixed messages -- pulling you close and then pushing you away. I'm just surprised that you turned to Sam; not that I'm knocking the mother of your child.
Jason: Courtney, what happened was something we did not plan on.
Courtney: Sam was involved with Sonny, Jason. I can certainly see her coming on to you, but why would you sleep with her? Unless you were doing it to protect Sonny and Carly.
Jason: That's how it started, anyway.
Sonny: I care about you. I want you in my life. I know that's selfish.
Sam: No, I am selfish that way, too. I --
Sonny: That night on the docks, when we were -- we were both at low points in our lives, we held on together. You helped me through the night. I helped you through the night. I got to tell you, I got to be honest, I thought that that was, you know, all that was going to be. Ok? And then I just -- you know, I realized that I could talk to you and that you weren't there to use me. You didn't ask me or anything. You gave me more than I deserved, and now you carry my child. I want you in my life, even if it's from a distance.
Sam: There is no room for me, Sonny. You made a commitment to Carly and your family.
Sonny: I don't know what's going to happen with Carly. I mean, she's the mother of my boys, I respect her, and I appreciate her. But something's missing.
Sam: You loved Carly once. You could fall in love with her again.
Sonny: Well, you know what? We've hurt each her way too many times. At this point, I'm not sure if I can forget her affair with Alcazar. Neither one of us wants to get back to that old cycle of blame, lies, betrayal -- our hearts are just closed to each other, you know? Ahem. I'm with Carly because of the promise I made to God and to Michael.
Sam: Michael's happy now, isn't he?
Sonny: Yeah, yeah, that's actually a great thing, because, you know, he just lights up every time he sees me and his mother, you know? Tucking him in bed and having dinner, playing soccer.
Sam: That's why you can do that, Sonny. You are committed to your family. I'm not saying it doesn't hurt, and in a strange way, it's kind of what attracts me to you, but I don't think I could love you if you left Carly and your kids for me. To be that careless with the family you have would mean that your love had no value. And instead, you have justified everything I feel for you.
Jason: I've always believed in Sonny and Carly’s marriage. I mean, even on their wedding day, Carly wanted to back out, you know and I was the one --
Courtney: Yeah, I know. You bet her $20 that Sonny would prove to be the love of her life. Do you really think that they can get back what they had?
Jason: I don't know. I think they can be happy. But I do know Michael and Morgan -- they will be happy.
Courtney: You slept with Sam to push Sonny and Carly back together, didn't you?
Jason: Yeah, something like that.
Courtney: God. Oh. So, what, she came on to you, and you let it happen to show Sonny what kind of woman she really is to make the choice between his family and Sam clear? And then Sonny and Carly got back together, anyhow, so your sleeping with Sam was a wasted effort. Till she showed up pregnant.
Jason: It was the last thing that I ever expected.
Courtney: Yeah, it's kind of crazy how things happen. You and I loved each other, and our baby wasn't meant to be, and then you and Sam have a meaningless fling, and just like that, you're having a baby. Maybe -- maybe it's a good thing. Yeah, I couldn't let go of you, and now I have to. But our lives are just taking us in different directions. So it's really over, Jason.
Courtney: (On phone) Are you busy?
Emily: Hey. You look exhausted. Why don't you close your eyes; take a nap?
Lucky: I just can't stop thinking about my parents. My dad -- he's being held at the PCPD, and my mom -- she's out there wandering around God knows where.
Emily: Well, Luke is going to get out on bail, and he's going to find her.
Lucky: No, not if some trigger-happy cop finds her first. I just feel like I put my mom's life in danger, and it's all my fault.
Emily: Lucky, you can't put this on yourself.
Lucky: If I'd never told her that Nikolas was dead; she'd just be safe in an institute. I just wish I'd never decided to tell her what happened.
Emily: No, Lucky, you just wanted to get through to her.
Lucky: I just wanted to make her feel again. I just felt if she started to think or, you know, started caring, it'd just would shift her back into some reality.
Lucky: Nikolas -- he would have known what to do. He just -- he would have never gone into that institution and told Mom --
Emily: All right, you know what, stop. Lucky, I’m not going to let you do this to yourself or to Nikolas.
Mary: Don't you think this is all a little excessive?
Nikolas: Um – no, not really. It, you know -- it somehow seems familiar to me.
Mary: Well, I just -- I can't help but thinking that Mr. Alcazar is arranging all this because he's going to want a favor in return; something you'll feel obliged to do, even if it's crossing boundaries you don't want to cross.
Nikolas: Well, maybe he's just being generous. Possibly -- possibly assuaging his guilt that I was injured on the job.
Mary: Well, maybe.
Nikolas: Just relax and enjoy it, please. Thank you.
Mary: Like you are?
Nikolas: A toast. To new experiences.
Mary: I'll drink to that. Mmm. This is delicious.
Nikolas: Yeah, well, it should be. It's from the best year in a small vineyard. Oh, hello. It's Russian caviar. You can't get this in the states.
Mary: I'll just have the toast with the tomatoes.
Nikolas: No, no, no, no, no, no, you have to try this, Mary. This is -- this here is top-quality roe from the Baltic Sea. You know, the northern part where the sun sets like streaks of fire, and the white -- ok, where did that come from? How did those words just come out of my mouth? What do I know about the Baltic Sea?
Mary: I have no idea.
Nikolas: I -- I swear, I could see the place in my head, Mary. Like at the church, when I spoke fluent Spanish.
Mary: The brain is a mystery. Head traumas can have bizarre side effects.
Nikolas: Yeah, well, I need to understand what's going on here. I want to see a specialist when we get back to Port Charles.
Mary: Ok, ok, listen, we're on a romantic vacation, and you're already talking about going home.
Nikolas: Killing the mood, huh?
Mary: Yeah. Here, have some more champagne and focus on us.
Nikolas: Ok. Ok. Now, we are on our way to a beach-side paradise to renew our wedding vows, which means -- which means that we were on our honeymoon the moment we boarded this plane.
Mary: What are you doing?
Nikolas: The pilot's busy flying the plane. We won't be interrupted.
Jax: Hey. Everything ok?
Courtney: The father of Sam’s baby isn't a mystery anymore.
Jax: Who is it?
Courtney: It's Jason.
Jax: Wow. Well, the man's a bigger fool than I thought. Cheating with trash like Sam when he was lucky enough to be married to you.
Sam: How'd it go with Courtney?
Jason: She handled it pretty well.
Sam: Which probably made it even worse. I'm sorry.
Jason: Yeah, me too.
Sam: You want to talk about it?
Sam: Right. You'd rather eat dirt and die. I know. I'm -- I'm sorry. Jason, I wish I would make you feel better since I'm feeling so much better myself.
Jason: What'd you do?
Sam: It's what Sonny did. He came over here looking for you, and we talked. It helped a lot. He still cares about me.
Sonny: Boys are asleep?
Carly: Yeah, Morgan is. Michael's faking it, though. As soon as I walked out, he turned his flashlight back on and went back to reading his latest "wizards and magic" book.
Sonny: I'll go check on him in a minute.
Carly: No, that's ok. I don't want to discourage him from reading.
Sonny: It's great that, you know, reading comes easy to him.
Carly: Yeah, well, he started early. Jason read him that guidebook to Africa by the time he was 6 months old.
Sonny: Yeah. Jason's always loved Michael, you know? He would do anything to make him happy.
Carly: Yeah, I'm sure he's going to do the same thing for his baby.
Sonny: Do you want to talk about what's going to happen?
Carly: There's not a lot to talk about, is there? I mean, in a perfect world, Sam will have her baby, give it to Jason, and disappear. Right? In a not-so-perfect world, she will stay here indefinitely, living across the hall.
Alexis: Look, I'm sorry that your bail was denied, but I can't tell you that I'm surprised.
Luke: Well, you did the best you could.
Alexis: All right, well, don't worry about it. It's not over. I will tear his case apart when we get to trial.
Luke: Do me a favor -- if you can, get an early court date. I'm not big on prison cuisine.
Alexis: I'll see what I can manage. I'll see you first thing in the morning.
Mary: Oh, my God. Oh! Connor, we have an oceanfront view!
Mary: The beach is right at our doorstep. Oh!
Nikolas: Yeah. The concierge said there were some coral reefs offshore. I'll get some masks and snorkels in the morning. We'll head out, ok?
Mary: This isn't really happening. We can't be looking at a perfect white-sand beach ringed in palm trees and leading out to a moonlit ocean.
Nikolas: It is as beautiful as you are.
Emily: Wow. Hey. Listen, Lucky, you can hear the ocean.
Bellhop: Si, senorita. You are right on the beach.
Emily: You know, I feel selfish taking the oceanfront room when yours is across the hall.
Lucky: Mm-hmm, you deserve it, Emily. I mean, Nikolas did plan this trip for the two of you.
Emily: Yeah, thanks for coming. I'm so glad you're here with me.
Lucky: So am I because I plan on eating my breakfast on your terrace every morning.
Emily: Is the terrace private?
Bellhop: Si, senorita. It's semi-private. You share it with the room next door.
Jax: Sam is exactly what Jason deserves. You know, he was never good enough for you. He's a cold-hearted thug who doesn't even understand the meaning of the word "love."
Courtney: Jason loved me.
Jax: That's exactly how he won you over. You're so kind and trusting. You always try to see the good in people, even when it's not there. And he used that, and then he crawled into bed with Sam and God knows who else.
Courtney: That not how it happened, Jax.
Jax: Well, you know what? The -- the details aren't important, ok? The fact is that you're in a position to pay him back. Right? Jason hates me as much as I hate him. And he will choke when he sees me treating you like a princess while he's stuck with Sam. See, you've moved on, and there's nothing he can do about that. So, he betrayed you, and now it's your turn to make him suffer, just a little.
Courtney: You don't know Jason at all, and you don't know me, either.
Sam: Don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to break up Sonny and Carly’s marriage. I know we're playing this whole charade to save whatever they have left.
Jason: I'm doing this for Michael so we can hold whatever family he has left together.
Sam: I know. Sonny agrees, and so do I. I'm just saying that I'm not going to deny my feelings for Sonny. I am in love with him, Jason, and I'm carrying his child. It just -- it means a lot to know that he -- that he cares about me, that's all.
Jason: Ok, that's fine. Whatever you say, feel for each other, it's none of my business, ok? But I'm asking you to remember -- there are three kids involved now. And they have a right to feel happy and secure, and if that means the adults have to make some sacrifices, then that's what needs to happen. That's what being a parent means.
Sonny: If Sam stays with Jason, we'll just find a way to deal.
Carly: Yeah. Well, you've got to admit that it's going to be a little more than uncomfortable.
Sonny: Well, what do you want to do, Carly? You want to ask Jason to move?
Sonny: Then we're just going to have to, you know, have some patience until, you know, we can just get used to the way things are.
Carly: Do you -- you feel like Jason betrayed you?
Carly: No? No, you don't feel like Jason betrayed you or no you don't want to discuss it?
Sonny: Jason's my best friend. He's like a brother to me. He didn't betray me; he never will. I don't think what he did is right, but I know what his reasons are. He wants to provide for Sam, and he wants to give the baby a good life, but at the same time, he wants to remain friends with us and our children. I am not going to shut Jason out. I mean, it's not right. Who am I to talk? I owe Jason more than I can, you know -- than I can ever repay.
Luke: I do love a woman who can wield a wrench.
Skye: I can't believe the flower camouflage worked.
Luke: Come on, come on, before sleeping ugly wakes up!
Skye: Hey, hey, you might want to thank me a little bit while I'm trying to get --
Luke: Thank you, already. Let's go, let's go!
Skye: Right. Right! Here.
Luke: Oh, God. Great. Let's get out of here.
Luke: One move and I shoot the hostage!
Skye: Help! He! Ooh! Ooh!
Luke: Ok, you can be quiet now.
Skye: Good point.
Alexis: What happened?
Officer: Oh, God. The prisoner escaped.
Ric: The -- how?
Officer: I'm -- I'm not sure. He -- he knocked me out, somehow, and then when I came to, he grabbed a hostage and threatened to shoot her.
Alexis: He had a weapon?
Officer: He took mine.
Ric: Well, what did the hostage look like?
Officer: A woman. Red hair, looked rich.
Ric: Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's Lansing. I need A.P.B's put out for both Skye Quartermaine and Luke Spencer. They're traveling together. They should be considered armed and dangerous.
Sonny: Michael's doing good in school, right?
Carly: Yeah. He's fine. The teachers say he's all caught up now.
Sonny: It's, what, now, two weeks until summer vacation?
Carly: You know, where are you going with this?
Sonny: A lot has happened, and I was just thinking, you know, it would help to get some distance.
Carly: Are you saying you want to go away?
Sonny: Just you, me, and the boys. I think we need time to reconnect as a family.
Courtney: Jason's worst flaw is his blind loyalty to Sonny, and even in the extreme, loyalty is not such a terrible thing.
Jax: You're still trying to paint Jason as the honorable soldier. What's honorable about sleeping with Sonny's mistress?
Courtney: Did it ever occur to you that Jason was trying to push Sonny and Carly back together? Trying to save their marriage when he couldn't save his own?
Jax: Couldn't or wouldn't?
Courtney: You've already made up your mind, so there's no point in this discussion.
Jax: You know, Courtney, I really don't understand. How did Jason convince you that having sex with Sam was a sacrifice? I mean, there had to be another way to save Sonny and Carly’s marriage.
Courtney: Sam came on to Jason, ok?
Jax: Grow up. See Jason’s little fling with Sam for what it was. It wasn't an attempt to save Sonny's marriage, ok? It was a sleazy round of mattress tag with a slut; all the while he claimed that he loved you. What a crock. I guess Mr. Doesn’t Lie tells the biggest lie of all.
Courtney: You don't know anything about us, Jax, ok. Jason loved me just as much as I loved him.
Sam: So, how is this going to work?
Jason: Um -- I don't know. Is the room you've been using ok?
Sam: Yeah, yeah, I love it. I mean, it's nothing I would have picked, but it's really comfortable. Thank you.
Jason: Ok, well, you know that room opens on to a den. I thought maybe that could be the nursery, and the nanny could use the room down the hall.
Jason: Yeah, the nanny. I thought you might like one, instead of taking care of the baby by yourself. At first you'd have to learn --
Sam: No, a nanny sounds great. That's good. Thank you.
Jason: Ok. Money -- um, we know you like a lot of money, so I'm going to get you a credit card. I'm going to get you a bank account, and if you ever need cash, it's always in this drawer, ok?
Sam: Jason, thanks for everything, ok?
Jason: Um -- I should thank you for -- for going along with it. Are you doing anything next Thursday?
Sam: I don't think so. Why?
Jason: Because we're getting married.
Mary: I take back every single one of my worries about this trip.
Nikolas: Glad we came?
Mary: It's paradise.
Lucky: Get your swimsuit on. I'm ready for that midnight swim.
Emily: Ok. Me, too. Hey, thanks again for doing this.
Lucky: Hey, it's my pleasure. I'll see you in a bit.
Emily: All right.
Mary: I'll be right back.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Luke: This is your part.
Skye: I thought that we were in this together.
Courtney: Is that why you're making $10 million bets? To sleep with women you barely know?
Carly: What you're really doing is just running away from Sam.
Jason: Why's marrying me such a big problem?
Sam: Where do I start?
