Alan: Are you ok?

Jax: No, I'm fine.

Mac: Do you want to press charges?

Jax: No. No.

Mac: All right.

Jax: Let that be a lesson to all of you -- beware of soliciting charitable contributions from your date's ex-husband.

Courtney: Are you ok?

Jax: Yeah, I'm fine. Have some more champagne.

Sam: You can act as cool as you want, but I am sure you had that coming.

Courtney: Sam, I invited you and Jason here against Jaxís advice. This is exactly the kind of scene I was trying to avoid.

Sam: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on. Do you think Jason slugged Jax for the hell of it? Come on, the guy was your husband. You should know him better than that.

Courtney: All I -- all I care about right now is damage control. This fundraiser is important, Sam.

Sam: This fundraiser is already a success thanks to Jason. He is the one who sent you the million-dollar check, not Jax. All he did was take credit for it.

Courtney: Look, I don't know what kind of angle you're trying to work here, Sam, but --

Sam: What, you don't believe me?

Courtney: Why should I believe you?

Sam: Why? You know Jason better than any of us. You know how giving he is and how he has been generous without any strings attached. Jason doesn't do things unless he believes in them. All he had to do was write the check and keep quiet about it, but Jax over here has to showboat with someone else's money. Isn't that right?

Jax: Sam's just trying to stir up trouble. Just enjoy the rest of the party; see how much more money we can raise.

Courtney: Jax? Did you write the check or not?

Jax: Let's deal with this tomorrow.

Courtney: If you really did write that check, I need you to prove it.

Sonny: My wife isn't your concern, Alcazar.

Lorenzo: Faith claims you're planning to move against me. I hope you sent Carly someplace safe.

Sam: What's going on?

Lorenzo: Why don't we continue this discussion later -- away from your mistress?

Bobbie: Emily? Hey.

Emily: Hey.

Bobbie: Why aren't you at Courtneyís benefit?

Emily: Oh, I'm not in much of a party mood.

Bobbie: Well, I can understand that. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Emily: Thank you.

Bobbie: You know, Nikolas was -- he was a terrific person. Not even the Cassadines could ruin him. He was always so thoughtful and considerate, and after he fell in love with you, I think he was happier than I'd ever seen him. You meant everything to him.

Emily: Well, Nikolas still means everything to me.

Bobbie: Wherever he is, he still loves you, and nothing can ever change that.

Emily: Thanks. You know, it's funny you should be here. I was just thinking about you -- and Nikolas.

Emily: You know, I think about Nikolas all the time. I ache for him. And sometimes I think that it would be enough if I just knew that he were alive somewhere. But I know that if he were, I'd never want us to be apart.

Mary: It doesn't do you any good to think like that. You're only hurting yourself.

Emily: That's good advice, Mary, and you're in a position to know. You know, in a way, Nikolas brought us together. If he hadn't disappeared near the river, we never would've met. I never would've had you to help me share my grief all these months.

Mary: Well, I'm glad I could be here.

Emily: Because you understand what it's like to be alone, right?

Mary: Yes.

Emily: Wow, you're -- you're back so soon. I heard you went on vacation.

Mary: Yeah, I don't get a lot of chances to get away.

Emily: Yeah? Where'd you go?

Mary: The beach.

Emily: Oh. Did you have a good time?

Mary: Yeah, I have a whole new perspective on life.

Emily: So you're ready to let Connor rest in peace?

Mary: I'll never forget Connor. He was my first love. But I have someone else now.

Emily: Huh. See, that's the difference between us, Mary. I realize that I don't want to move on. I want Nikolas back.

Mary: But Nikolas is gone, and you're going to be happy again someday.

Emily: No, Mary. Wow, you're an inspiration. Yeah, I want to see a lot more of you. You know, without Nikolas in my life, I need to depend on other people, and I -- I hope that we can get together again sometime soon -- with your new boyfriend, of course.

Mary: We'll set something up. But first I -- I have to get these to the records room.

Emily: Ok.

Mary: So Iíll see you later, ok, Emily?

Emily: All right.

Courtney: If you really did write that anonymous check, Jax, all you have to do is show me the paperwork.

Jax: Who wants to deal with paperwork tonight? Come on, we're having a party.

Courtney: No, why don't you call your assistant and have her bring over a printout of the transaction.

Jax: Do you really think that's necessary?

Ric: Yeah, I'm afraid it might be.

Edward: Who asked you?

Ric: You know, if you can't prove that you wrote that check, I'm going to have to assume that the funds came from Jason. In which case I'm going to have to freeze the foundation's funds pending an investigation into money laundering.

Courtney: That could hold us up for months.

Alexis: My suggestion is you just make a call and you straighten it out, and that way we can prove the D.A. is wrong once again.

Jax: Well, why don't we go over the records all tomorrow morning over coffee at Kellyís?

Ric: Is it going to take you that long to cook the books? I'd like to see that printout tonight, if you don't mind.

Alexis: What are you going to do? You going to have Mac take him away in shackles?

Tracy: Commissioner, if he goes, she goes, right?

Mac: Can you prove the money came from Jason?

Alexis: That shouldn't be a problem since Sam McCall is an admitted con artist, prostitute, and thief. Why would she lie about a man who dumped her? That check could've been written by anyone. The money could've been donated anywhere. And even if the check is questionable, Courtney believed that it was from Jax, so she didn't do anything wrong.

Courtney: Jason makes anonymous donations to charities all the time.

Tracy: Oh, well, that must be to save himself the monumental effort of remembering his own name.

Monica: Why can't someone punch you?

Courtney: Look, if Jason did write the check, I will return it immediately.

Alexis: That sounds like an equitable solution. Sorry to disappoint you, but no laws have been broken here.

Ric: As long as the money's returned to Jason.

Courtney: Oh, I see -- Jasonís money isn't good enough to help kids. Yeah, understandable, since all of you are honest, upright, blameless citizens. Look, I don't want there to be any concern about where the foundation gets its money, so I will return the check tonight. Enjoy yourselves. It's for a good cause.

Tracy: Well. Didn't I warn you she was too simple for your taste? Fortunately, I'm in a forgiving mood.

[Jax sniffs]

Jax: Is that the same perfume that you always wear? What's it called -- desperation?

Tracy: No. It's called timeless --

Jax: Oh.

Tracy: As in pure love. Pure passion, as in what your would-be girlfriend feels about her ex.

Jason: Stan, kitchen's clean?

Stan: Yeah, so's the upstairs.

Jason: Nothing's missing, no bugs.

Stan: What do you think he wanted?

Jason: I don't know, but we're going to have to add more security.

Lorenzo: Well, you've obviously decided to go public with your affair -- having a heated conversation with Sam in Carlyís club; making sure everyone sees her follow you out. You're determined to humiliate Carly, aren't you?

Sam: No, Carly got everything she wanted. I'm with Jason now. He is the father of my child, and we're going to get married, so --

Lorenzo: Hey, congratulations. You really expect anyone to believe you when you've made it clear that you're devoted to Sonny?

Lorenzo: What does Carly think of this? Does she even know about tonight?

Sonny: I don't have to tell you anything. Neither does she.

Sam: Hey, why don't you just leave us alone, please?

Sonny: Ok -- ok, ok.

Sam: You got what you deserve.

Nikolas: She doesn't like you very much.

Lorenzo: Yeah. You shouldn't be here. It's too public.

Nikolas: Well, then Iíll make this brief. I almost got shot again. I think I may be needing to look for a safer line of work.

Emily: I've been reading the clinicals on new memory drugs. They look very promising.

Tony: Well, those drugs are for disease. They're not for brain injury. They won't help Jason.

Emily: Right, but some kinds of memory loss can be treated, right?

Tony: Absolutely. In some cases, a patient's memory is intact, and a single trigger -- something as simple as a song or a photograph -- can bring everything back.

[Knock on door]

Courtney: Hey. Jason, look, I understand what happened tonight.

Jason: No, no, look, I'm sorry if I ruined your party.

Courtney: No, you didn't. Ok, Jax had it coming. Look, he was awful tonight, and I'm -- Iím starting to see why you and Sonny hate him so much.

Jason: What -- what are you doing here?

Courtney: Did you send this?

Jason: How'd you find out?

Courtney: I thought -- I thought that Jax did, and -- and he let me believe that until Sam told me the truth. I can't -- I can't accept the money, Jason. I wish I could.

Jason: No, it's from the coffee business, Courtney, it's clean.

Courtney: No, I know -- no, no -- I -- believe me, I know you would never undermine the foundation with dirty money, but Ricís threatened to freeze the foundation's bank accounts while he conducts an investigation, and if I accept this, he'll shut us down. Look, I -- I appreciate it, though. Thank you, anyway.

Jason: You're welcome.

Courtney: Are you happy?

[Music plays]

Alexis: How's my favorite ex?

Jax: I've had better evenings.

Alexis: He didn't break anything, did he?

Jax: No, I don't think so. He certainly livened up the party, though, didn't he?

Alexis: About that check -- did you take credit for something that he did?

Jax: It's a long story.

Alexis: I want to hear about it.

Jax: Well, now isn't the time, ok? Thanks for your concern.

Ric: So much for keeping your client in line.

Alexis: Will you back off?

Ric: You know, you'll feel much better after we dance.

Alexis: You just cost the foundation a million dollars and you embarrassed my best friend.

Ric: Does that mean you don't want to dance?

Alexis: I would rather stick needles in my eyes.

Ric: It must be annoying, you know, wanting something and wishing that you didnít.

Alexis: There is no way that I will ever dance with you again.

Ric: Oh, you want to go straight to the serious kiss?

Alexis: That will never happen again because you took advantage of me because I had too much to drink.

Ric: Technically, you did take advantage of me.

Alexis: Did you learn that line at Harvard?

Ric: Very good. Well, try this one -- did you learn it at Yale? -- "I could be your dream come true."

Emily: Now, do you think it's a good idea to deliberately trigger memory, or is it better to wait?

Tony: That's a tough call. Hypnosis could be very effective in certain patients.

Emily: Ok, do you recommend it?

Tony: For Jason? There wouldn't be a point. He has brain damage, Emily. It's like the person that he used to be died.

[Pager beeps]

Tony: You know what? I'm going to have to get this. Would you excuse me?

Emily: Yeah, no -- thank you for your help.

Tony: Anytime.

Emily: Ok. Mary, hi.

Mary: Hi. Sorry for eavesdropping. What's your sudden interest in memory?

Emily: Well, someone I love has amnesia.

Lorenzo: I told you to monitor Jason Morgan, not break into his house.

Nikolas: I'm very thorough.

Lorenzo: I warned you that Morgan was dangerous; that he would shoot on sight.

Nikolas: You act as if everyone will shoot me on sight. It doesn't make sense. Those people who just left, for example, the ones I followed in Costa Rica -- what difference does it make if they see me? They couldn't care less if I was a marine deserter.

Lorenzo: What if Corinthos got a glimpse of you in Costa Rica and what if he sees you here? I don't want him to make that connection.

Nikolas: Why, though? Why do you need me? All right, look, if I'm to continue working for you, I need to know exactly what it is you're really after and how I fit in.

Lorenzo: When we met in the church, you told me you'd lost your memory.

Nikolas: Yeah, but you said I was a lucky man.

Lorenzo: You are. You pray to remember your life, and I pray to forget mine. Neither prayer has been answered. You still don't have a past, and I can't stop wanting a woman who's attached to someone else. No matter how complicated the situation seems, it always goes back to her.

Nikolas: But why did you hire me?

Lorenzo: I trust my instincts.

Emily: My brother Jason lost his memory years ago.

Mary: But it doesn't seem like there's anything wrong with him. He seemed so concerned for you the night of the accident.

Emily: Yes, but if you'd met him before, Mary, he was the light of the Quartermaine family. He was kind, generous, brilliant. He was going to be a doctor. And then he got into the wrong car with the wrong person, and the Jason we love never came home.

Mary: That's terrible.

Emily: See, now his life is small and dark. He'll never be a doctor. He can't connect with the people who love him the most. My family still grieves for him. You know, my grandfather pretends that he doesn't, but he would do anything to bring the old Jason back. And my mom -- she never really got over it.

Mary: Well, at least he's alive.

Emily: Yeah, but, see, he's a different person, Mary, and I love him, and I try not to judge him because that's the only way that I can be close to him. But my precious brother Jason Quartermaine is gone, and so is the amazing life that he might've had.

Mary: But isn't Jason living the life he wants?

Emily: Who'd want to live in secret, cut off from their family, always on the run, always looking over your shoulder? You know, see, Jason says that it's the only way that he can survive and maybe that's true. But when I think about what his life might've been -- my family will never stop hoping that the Jason who loves them will come back.

Mary: But what about the people Jason loves now? Do you think he should just leave them behind?

Sam: Why do I let Alcazar get to me, and why can't I just ignore him?

Sonny: I hate the bastard, too, Sam, but he's right. I should've kept my distance from you tonight, and I didn't.

Sam: What if you could arrange things exactly the way you want?

Sonny: I can't -- don't --

Sam: But what if you could? I mean, forget reality, forget marriage, forget everything for just a second. Where would you want me to live? Would you want me across the hall with Jason? Or would you want me and our child in the penthouse with you?

Emily: See, Jason believes that he owes his life to Sonny Corinthos, and maybe that's true. Or maybe Sonny has him locked in a prison that's far worse than death row.

Mary: It can't be that bad.

Emily: Jason's life is filled with violence and secrets. He can't really trust anyone, Mary, or fall in love or have a life of his own.

Mary: Is he unhappy?

Emily: I don't know. I mean, he never -- he never really complains. I mean, he says that he thinks for himself and that he makes his own decisions, but what choice -- what choice does Jason really have?

Mary: But the people he's with now -- don't they love him?

Emily: Sure, as long as he's useful and he puts his life on the line and he follows Sonny's orders. But Jason Quartermaine -- he didn't have to prove his loyalty; he didn't have to hide from the police. He didn't have to do terrible things to survive. His life was just about to take off before the accident. I can only imagine where he would be now.

Mary: And the people who loved Jason from before --

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Mary: Don't they have to at some point let go?

Emily: Hey, people can say it's like he died, but he isn't dead. And sometimes I think, "What if Jason remembered in a flash, and everything came back to him?" You know, the time, the career, the family he wanted; the love he never had. How would he deal with a completely wasted life?

Alan: Hi, sweetie.

Emily: Hi, Dad.

Alan: Hey!

Emily: Hey. Is everything all right?

Alan: Yeah. There's a glitch in this grant proposal that has to go out tonight, so I just came here to take care of it.

Emily: Oh, ok. Well, thank God. I thought something was wrong with Courtneyís benefit.

Alan: No, no, no, no, no. I'm going back in a few minutes. Why don't you come with me? I'm sure the family would love to see you.

Emily: I'm not dressed.

Alan: Yeah, I understand.

[Alan laughs]

Emily: Is Jason there?

Alan: Yeah, he showed up just in time to punch Jax out.

Emily: Oh, God.

Alan: I'm never going to get used to it, Emily. He was going to be this great surgeon, now all he does is use his hands for violence.

Emily: Hey, Dad, you know what, I know this is probably a bad time, but after the accident, did you and Mom consider all the treatment options for Jason?

Alan: Sweetie, we exhausted every treatment option that there was. We would've done anything; tried anything to get his memory back.

Emily: Well, I guess I was just too young. All I remember is him being mad at everyone all the time.

Alan: I think we just pushed too hard and too soon and he couldn't understand that we were just trying to help him. Finally, he just refused treatment altogether.

Sonny: I don't like hypotheticals.

Sam: Come on, just answer the question.

Sonny: Well --

Sam: Would you rather have me with Jason or would you want me and our child with you?

Sonny: I -- I have to deal in reality.

Sam: Yeah, Sonny, so do I. But I can still daydream. I can think about the way things could've been different. If I could go back in time, I would've fallen in love with you before you ever met Carly.

Sonny: What are you trying to say?

Sam: I can't go back. You are married to Carly, and Michael and Morgan are your heart.

Sonny: Ok, but what if -- ok, I'll give you something. How's that?

Sam: Ok.

Sonny: Ok? What if I got divorced with Carly, right? And would you want to marry somebody --

Sam: Yes! Yes.

Sonny: That's --

Sam: Yes, but you know what? It would be a mistake.

Sonny: Yeah? Why?

Sam: Why?

Sonny: Yeah.

Sam: Because you would be away from your kids, you would blame yourself for breaking up their home, I'd have to deal with the guilt, and eventually you would go back to your family. And you would break my heart. So when you think about it, it's better this way.

Courtney: Sam hasn't changed anything.

Jason: Yeah, well, you know, she -- she hasn't been staying here that long.

Courtney: Well, I'm sure she'll redo the place after you get married. It's just so strange thinking about you two as husband and wife. It's a big step. Are you sure that's what you want?

Jason: I want it for the baby.

Courtney: Yeah, but, you know, you have a right to be happy, too, Jason.

Jason: I'm going to be ok.

Courtney: You used to want more than "ok."

Jason: You know, if I get to see Michael and Morgan, it's a great day. I do my job well. I don't really think about what might've been.

Courtney: I guess that's why this is all easier on you. You usually don't think about what might've happened. Oh, anyway, I guess there's no point in looking back, right?

[Jason sighs]

Courtney: I mean, you have a baby to think of. I'm surprised that she's not here. I mean, I would have thought after what happened at the party, I mean, I would have thought she would've come home.

Jason: Yeah, you know, everything happened so fast, she probably just thought it was easier to let me go, you know, give me some space.

Courtney: Do you like her?

Jason: Yeah. Yeah, you know, we don't make any promises we can't keep.

Courtney: Yeah, you got to watch out for those promises.

Jason: Sam and I are fine. We're together, and most importantly, our baby's going to have a father.

Courtney: And the best father a child could ever have.

[Music plays]

Alexis: Five minutes, that's all you get. Now leave me alone.

Ric: The night is young.

Alexis: Good. Then you have time to pick up someone else.  Hi.

Ned: Hi.

Alexis: You enjoying the party?

Ned: Well, no one's been shot yet, so that's a plus.

Alexis: Good point. You know, Kristina is getting really big. You should make a point of coming to see her.

Ned: So what are you doing hiding from Ric Lansing?

Alexis: I'm not hiding from him.

Ned: And why is he staring at you?

Alexis: Because he's weird.

Ned: Oh. According to Alan, you chased him out of the courtroom. And now you're hanging out with him?

Alexis: I am not hanging out with him.

Ned: You've been chasing him around all night long, fighting one minute, imbibing the next. What, are you attracted to him?

Alexis: Will you keep your voice down? I barely even know him, and what I do know I find disgusting.

Ned: Thank you.

Waiter: Amazing tango the other night, Ms. Davis. You and Mr. Lansing were hot, if you don't mind me saying.

Alexis: Thanks.

Ned: Unbelievable. First Sonny, and now his little brother.

Alexis: Well, it is nothing like that.

Ned: Oh, come on. He's irresistible, dark, edgy, haunted by rumors of unsavory dealings.

Alexis: There is a perfectly good explanation --

Ned: And most importantly, he treats you badly -- that's key. Soon you'll be putty in his hands. You never learn.

Edward: That lawyer has been nuzzling with Justus all night.

Monica: I think it's sweet.

Edward: Anybody know anything about her?

Monica: Oh, for Peteís sake.

Edward: Well, what is her background? Where does she come from?

Alan: I heard they went to law school together.

Edward: Who are her parents, her grandparents? I mean, are they appropriate?

Tracy: What do you care? She's not flirting with Dillon. He's the only heir you should be worried about.

Monica: Maybe you were too busy stalking Jax to notice, but your son turned his back on the family when you drove him out.

Jen: They're all staring at us.

Justus: Tracy's probably figured out that Edwardís been checking you out.

Jen: For what?

Justus: The mother of the next Quartermaine heir.

Jen: You're kidding. Justus, please promise me you're kidding?

Justus: They'll love this.

[Jen giggles]

Tracy: Well, clearly they're not laughing at us.

Edward: You haven't stopped staring at them.

Alan: Justus doesn't even consider himself a Quartermaine.

Edward: As much a Quartermaine as Brooke Lynn -- not that we ever see her.

Ned: Do you think I want it that way?

Alan: There's always Michael.

Edward: And our little Kristina -- not that her mother should ever be bothered.

Ric: You drive here?

Alexis: No.

Ric: Want a ride?

Alexis: No.

Ric: Sure?

Alexis: Yes.

Ric: Well, how about a kiss good night for old time's sake?

Alexis: I'm not even sure the kiss happened.

Ric: Maybe it was a fantasy.

Alexis: Well, then it was your fantasy, not mine.

Ric: Mm-hmm. I think you're just afraid when I drive you home that you're going to want to kiss me good night.

Alexis: Not in this lifetime.

Ric: You won't be able to resist it.

Alexis: Are there actually women who find that level of conceit attractive?

Ric: Come on. Don't you want to prove me wrong?

Emily: Hi.

Nikolas: Hi. What are you doing here?

Emily: Just thinking -- but I thought you might walk by.

Nikolas: So -- so you waited for me?

Emily: Kind of. It sounds crazy, but I kind of feel comfortable with you, almost like we've known each other for years.

Nikolas: Yeah, I feel that way, too. You know, I've been so -- so isolated since the accident out in the -- out in the woods with Mary, which she says I loved, but -- anyway, I never even speak to anyone other than Mary and --

Emily: Yeah.

Nikolas: The man I work for, and now you.

Emily: Hmm. Do you think we could be friends?

Nikolas: Yeah. I was actually about to ask you the same thing.

Alexis: Thanks for the ride.

Ric: Anytime.

Alexis: Not that I needed it -- I'm perfectly sober, and I have no interest in a good-night kiss.

Ric: Hmm.

Alexis: Counselor.

Ric: Has it occurred to you that you're protesting just the tiniest bit too much?

Alexis: Why wouldn't I protest? I find you reprehensible.

Ric: You're afraid of me.

Alexis: Yes, I am.

Jason: There was someone searching the penthouse when I came home. He took off before I could see his face.

Sam: What do you think he wanted?

Jason: Not sure.

Sam: Well, if he didn't get anything, he's probably going to come back, right?

Jason: Uh -- I'm in the process of adding more security, ok? You're safe here.

Sam: Yeah, I actually believe that -- for once in my life.

Jason: Good.

Sam: Jason? I got mad and I told Courtney that you donated that million-dollar donation to the charity. I'm sorry.

Jason: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, Sam, I know. She came back to bring the check.

Sam: She was here?

Jason: Yes.

Sam: Yeah. Jason, you love her, and she loves you, and this isn't fair. You are giving up everything to be with me, and I --

Jason: We've made the decision. We're going to live with it. Now, did you eat any of that food that Sonny brought?

Sam: No. No, I was getting ready for the benefit, I didn't have time.

Jason: Ok, well, you want me to heat it up, or would you like a sandwich?

Sam: I invited Sonny over.

[Music plays]

Felicia: Right?

[Felicia and Mac laugh]

Mac: It looks like we've closed the place.

Felicia: Oh, dear. And we're out way past curfew, too.

Mac: Hmm. We might get grounded.

Felicia: Oh, dear. Are we on a date? Is this considered a date between you and me?

Mac: I don't know. What did you think it is, a field trip, an experiment?

Felicia: It's fun. Want to do it again sometime?

Mac: I'd like nothing better.

Felicia: Finish it.

Mac: Hmm.

Felicia: Ok.

[Felicia giggles]

Jax: Party's over.

Courtney: I'm sorry I was gone so long.

Jax: Did you give the money back to Jason?

Courtney: Yes. God, Jax, why did -- why did you say the money was from you?

Jax: You'll have my resignation from the board.

Courtney: So, what, were you expecting me to try to talk you out of it?

Jax: You're disappointed in me.

Courtney: Yes, very.

Jax: Well, I'm disappointed in you, too.

Mary: Dr. Jones? May I ask you a question?

Tony: Sure. What can I do for you?

Mary: I overheard you talking to Emily about her brother. I didn't realize -- is Jason suffering from some memory loss?

Tony: He was a brilliant young man with a bright future.  Major head trauma, and now he is basically an amoral sidekick for a professional criminal.

Mary: But do you think he's as happy as he was before?

Tony: Jason has no real sense of what he lost, and unfortunately his family is very aware of what it is.

Mary: But for him, I mean, as long as he doesn't miss his old life, as long as he's happy, that's all that matters, right?

Nikolas: I -- I just -- I hate feeling so disconnected. You know, I feel like -- like I have nothing to build on. Even my memories and my heart aren't really mine. I have to depend on Mary for everything, and it should be the other way around. It's just -- she loves me so much, and I just --

Emily: You don't want to hurt her.

Nikolas: And that's -- that's why I can't really tell her how I feel, because she already blames herself.

Emily: Do you think your life would be better if you -- if you got your memory back?

Nikolas: Yes, absolutely.

Emily: Well, I've been doing some reading on the subject, and I discussed your options with a doctor.

Nikolas: Oh -- I really wish you hadn't have done that.

Emily: No, no, no, don't -- don't worry, don't worry. He thought that we were discussing my brother. He had a head trauma years ago and -- and it affected his memory.

Nikolas: So that's why you're so interested.

Emily: Yeah. Um -- the doctor said that hypnosis can help some patients. Would you consider it?

Alexis: There's nothing that you do without an ulterior motive. Why wouldn't that concern me?

Ric: Yeah, nice deflection, and if we were in court, I'd applaud you, right after I registered an objection for avoiding the question. You're afraid of yourself. You're afraid that you're going to lose control -- that's why you won't kiss me.

Alexis: You think I'm trying to avoid being swept away by my passion for you?

Ric: Oh, no, I never said that. But you act like it's not even a possibility. I mean, do you remember the other night?

Alexis: When you took advantage of me after I had 11 glasses of wine?

Ric: Technically, you took advantage of me.

Alexis: I feel no passion for you.

Ric: Oh.

Alexis: I have no attraction for you. That kiss meant absolutely nothing to me. And since you have the emotional I.Q. of a Simian, I will be happy to demonstrate. Watch and learn.

Jax: Did it ever occur to you that I might be on your side?

Courtney: What am I missing?

Jax: First, you assume that the money came from me.

Courtney: Yeah, and you did nothing to clear up the mistake, Jax.

Jax: Because I didn't want you to have to give the money back. The check didn't come from me, so I figured it probably came from Sonny or Jason. We all agreed that the foundation couldn't accept money from them. So the only way to keep the million dollars was to let you think that it came from me.

Courtney: Ok, well, when the truth came out, why didn't you say anything to clear it up?

Jax: Why didn't you give me the benefit of the doubt?

Lorenzo: Carly Corinthos, please. It's a family emergency.

Sam: I can't visit Sonny at his place, Jason. It feels wrong.

Jason: Well, you've been there before.

Sam: I know, but Carly lives there now, and the kids' toys are all over the place. It's just -- it's easier here. You hate all this. Look, I am -- I'm sorry, Jason. You're getting the wrong end of the deal. It's not fair.

Jason: No, you know, I just used to yell at Carly all the time for telling so many lies, for getting in so deep, but now it's like I kind of understand how it works. You tell one lie for a good reason, and there's no way out. Lies keep piling up; they take over your life.

Sam: I'm sorry.

Jason: No, you know what? Don't -- there's nothing to be sorry about. We all agreed to this arrangement. Ok? I just want you to have what you need, because the happier you are, the better it is for the baby.

Sam: Thank you, Jason.

Jason: Just call me on my cell, ok, if you need anything.

Sonny: Stay here, don't go anywhere. I need to talk to both of you. I think you should get married as soon as possible.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Emily: Maybe hypnosis could help you understand who you were.

Nikolas: I'd have to run it by Mary.

Mary: The subconscious has reasons it doesn't remember things.

Sam: I want a real wedding, in a church.

Courtney: I'm not going to do anything to stop the wedding, and neither are you.
