Jax: I thought -- I thought we were getting to know each other, huh? Establishing trust? Now I find out that you flat out lied to me.

Courtney: About what?

Jax: Well, all that talk about being a city girl, huh? It's obvious that you're an expert camper.

Courtney: Is it so impossible for you to believe that I'm just good at this? Better than you, as it turns out.

Jax: What? What?

Lois: Thanks for stopping by.

Lorenzo: Pleased to hear from you. It surprised me, though.

Lois: Really? Why is that?

Lorenzo: Last time we spoke, you made it very clear you didn't want me or my money invested in L&B.

Lois: Who says I asked you to come here to discuss business?

Lorenzo: Touchť. Now I'm really intrigued.

Lois: Hmm. But you were right the first time -- I mean, about this being a business meeting.

Lorenzo: Hmm.

Lois: But your interpretation of what I said to you last time is a little off the mark. I mean, I did make it clear that I wasn't going to let you buy your niece a singing career, but I didn't say she couldn't have one on her own merits, since Sage is talented, and I might be willing to sign her.

Lorenzo: I'm afraid that's impossible.

Sam: Thank God you're back. You weren't followed?

Jason: Relax, I know what Iím doing. No one's going to find us.

Sam: Yeah, but I can't hide out for the rest of my life, Jason. Eventually, the cops are going to track me down.

Jason: Sam, I know you're scared, but you're going to have to trust me. I told you I would make this right, and I will.

Sam: How? Everyone in Bailey's Beach thinks I murdered my mother in cold blood. In the eyes of the law, I am already guilty. And they're not going to stop until they make me pay. I just don't want my baby to have to pay for my mistakes, too.

Nikolas: Hey. Wake up. Why are you waiting for me? We already said it all.

Emily: Not exactly. I didn't get to have my say. And just so you know -- I'll wait forever if I have to.

Georgie: You know, friends like you I really don't need.

Brook Lynn: What's wrong?

Georgie: What's wrong? You betrayed me, that's what's wrong. Look, I trusted you with my innermost feelings, and how could you turn around and blab them to Dillon?

Lois: I thought you wanted your niece to sing.

Lorenzo: No, that's what she wants. I'm not opposed.

Lois: I am standing here telling you that your niece has a shot at a real career. One would think you'd be a little more enthusiastic.

Lorenzo: I haven't heard your pitch yet.

Lois: Oh, is that what you think I'm doing? Pitching? Wrong again. No, I merely suggested a possibility that might work for all parties concerned. I'm not even convinced myself yet.

Lorenzo: Hmm. But you're getting there.

Lois: Yeah, well, we held an open call, and Sage auditioned. And you know what? She was good -- impressive, even. Subsequently, I discovered some tracks that she's been working on independently.

Lorenzo: Now, that's my girl.

Lois: Oh, I wouldn't be getting puffed up yet if I were you. Your girl didn't have permission to be in the studio working with my equipment unsupervised. And if she had damaged anything, we'd be discussing a lawsuit right about now. But the point is all's well that ends well, and the tracks are rough, but I think they're good. They show promise. And I think with a really strong producer and the right choreographer, Sage is a viable performer.

Lorenzo: Hmm. Well, I'm pleased you think so. And I'm willing to support her 100% -- as long as I retain control.

Lois: What did you say?

Lorenzo: Control -- I like having it. Fortunately for me, I'm independently wealthy, so it's usually not a problem. But if it is for you, I'll simply purchase an interest in another label; set Sage up there.

Lois: I am going to do you the courtesy of assuming you actually love your niece?

Lorenzo: Well, that goes without saying.

Lois: Then how can you deny her the thrill of making it on her own? What is the single most life-affirming thing that any human being can possibly do? I'll tell you. Realizing their own bliss and then achieving it on their own terms. You can't take that opportunity away from your niece.

Lorenzo: Has anyone ever told you you're very good at this?

Emily: At least you've toned it down a notch.

Nikolas: Are you taking that as a good sign? That my memory will somehow magically be restored and I'll feel all warm and fuzzy toward you?

Emily: I'm assuming it hasn't. You never used to be cutting and sarcastic with me.

Nikolas: Oh, good. Good. Another scrap of information about Nikolas Cassadine that I didn't know. I'm going to go ahead and file that away with all the other little fascinating little nuggets that I happen to learn at the library or find out from other people, and you know what? Who knows? Maybe I'll be able to cobble together enough pieces to form a man that I recognize. But I got to tell you something, from what I know so far, Iím not really that impressed. Nikolas Cassadine to me seems to be nothing more than a rich -- a useless dilettante descended from a long line of psychotic murderers.

Emily: No, you're wrong. Nikolas is a wonderful person. He's kind and generous and forgiving.

Nikolas: Yeah, well, I'm sorry, but I don't feel a connection to your cute little paragon that you're describing, Emily. I don't feel kind. I don't feel generous, and I don't feel wonderful, and I certainly don't feel like forgiving all the people who lied to me!

Emily: I waited here all night for a chance to explain. Can you give me that much?

Nikolas: Explain all you want. It won't change anything.

Emily: My older brother Jason was brain-damaged in a car wreck, and he was left with no memory, no context for emotion. He changed overnight from a loving, responsible premed student to a dark, angry nightmare. He turned his back on everyone who loved him most, and I didn't want that to happen to you.

Nikolas: So you chose to leave me in ignorance and lie to my face?

Emily: I was praying that you would remember in your own time. I didn't want to force you into a life that you weren't prepared for.

Nikolas: In other words, you decided to play God -- to choose how I should live my life, what I was and wasn't capable of.

Emily: Do you think that this has been easy for me? I mean, it nearly killed me seeing you with Mary, knowing that you felt obligated to a woman who was keeping you prisoner in a lie!

Nikolas: You -- you helped her!

Emily: I was trying to help you, to protect you, to give you time to remember on your own.

Nikolas: What did you imagine would happen, Emily? What, that Iíd wake up one morning and realize I was kind, generous, forgiving Nikolas Cassadine who loved you with all my heart?

Emily: Yes, that is exactly what I imagined. I dreamed of it. I still do.

Nikolas: Well, look at me! It hasn't happened! And I don't feel anything for you. I want you to go. I want you to go right now.

Emily: Listen to me --

Nikolas: I want you to go right now.

Emily: Listen to me. Listen to me. Be as angry -- be as angry with me as you want. Just don't give up trying to remember.

Nikolas: Don't tell me what to do, ok? You have no right telling me what to do. I want you to go right now. Just go. Oh, God.

Lorenzo: I can't pay for a musical career for Sage. I could pay for her to record a C.D., pay for a video to be shot and released, but in the end, Sage is going to rise or fall on her own merits.

Lois: Right. So why not entrust her career to someone that has her best interests at heart? Really, you're not going to do your niece any favors by surrounding her with a bunch of yes people because there's no way they're going to challenge her to be the very best she can be. No, because they're going to be too busy tripping over themselves trying to anticipate her next bratty, spoiled whim. I've seen it. I know whereof I speak, and that is why Iím saying I think Sage needs to be with a label of integrity.

Lorenzo: And that would be L&B?

Lois: No doubt.

Lorenzo: Yeah.

Lois: Plus, she'd get me as an added bonus. Really. She gets the benefit of my expertise, my persistence, my intelligence, and my fabulous ear for music. Tempted yet? Or do I need to stand on my head?

Lorenzo: Now, that's tempting. I'll tell you what -- I'll give the matter some thought. But in the meantime, it has been a pleasure negotiating with you.

Lois: Likewise, I'm sure. By the way, you're not so bad at this, either.

Lorenzo: Well, coming from you, I will take that as high praise.

Lois: Yeah.

Lorenzo: Mr. Ashton.

Ned: What the hell's that about?

Courtney: Not to be -- ahem -- critical or unappreciative --

Jax: Oh, I love it when sentences start that way.

Courtney: Well, maybe we should think about hiking out soon because, if we don't, we are going to be a couple of very hungry campers tonight.

Jax: Are you disparaging my fish?

Courtney: I'm only pointing out the obvious, Jax. I mean, come on, it's tiny.

Jax: Well, I mean, you -- you know, you organized this. I thought you'd be taking care of the details.

Courtney: Oh, so, what, you want me to fish?

Jax: No. I want you to admit that you canít. Once you do that, then I will go out and catch us a feast.

Courtney: Oh, I see. Ok, so what, I'm just supposed to look on in womanly awe while my he-man catches our next big meal and then brings it back for me to cook? While you do what, exactly, hmm? What, you sit back and bask in the glory of your manliness? So, will I be expected to give you a back rub later, too?

Jax: Well, I wouldn't turn that down.

Courtney: Mm-hmm. Yeah, let's just stick to your original assumption. I will catch the fish, and you will cook it.

Jax: It might not be as easy as you think.

Courtney: Jax, you put bait on a hook and you throw it into the water. It isn't brain surgery.

Jax: Ok, you just -- you know, be careful. The banks are a little slippery this time of the year, and the river's high, and it's snowmelt, so it's pretty cold.

Courtney: I know how to handle myself.

Jason: The night I asked you to lie and say that the baby was mine -- I promised that I would protect you and your child, and that's what Iím going to do, no matter what it costs me.

Sam: No, this isn't fair, Jason! You had no idea what you were signing up for. You didn't know what I was hiding.

Jason: Did you mean to kill your mother?

Sam: Absolutely not.

Jason: You swear it was an accident?

Sam: On my baby's life.

Jason: I believe you and that's that.

[Phone rings]

Jason: Yeah?

Emily: Something's happened. I need to speak to you right away.

Brook Lynn: Look, I'll explain if you let me, ok?

Georgie: Donít. Just forget I even ever brought it up.

Brook Lynn: Am I not allowed to stand up for myself now?

Georgie: What's there to say, Brook? I told you something incredibly personal, and you practically broke your neck running to Dillon to tell him that Iím some desperate ho, and I want sex.

Brook Lynn: Look, ok, it wasn't like that. I walked in, and Dillon and Sage were --

Georgie: Were doing what?

Brook Lynn: Relax, ok? They weren't even standing close. Anyways, I just -- I don't know, I know that Sage has been a problem, and I just wanted to -- stake your claim? I wanted Dillon to realize how important you are, ok?

Georgie: I have no idea how you can call your mother so pushy and meddling when you are exactly the same way. Dillon and I -- that's our relationship, and you have no business being a part of it. So if it's up to me, you can please just stay out of it now.

Dillon: Georgie? You're being unfair.

Brook Lynn: No, Dillon, you don't have to stand up for me, ok? I didn't do anything wrong. And forgive me for thinking that we were friends and trying to help you out and stand up for you, Georgie, but you know what? Forget about it because this is me taking myself out of both of your lives.

Georgie: Fine.

Dillon: Go after her and apologize right now --

Georgie: Absolutely not. She's the one who cannot keep a secret.

Lucas: Oh -- do you make it a habit to tackle total strangers?

Brook Lynn: Why didn't you watch where you're going?

Lorenzo: You sounded terrible. What happened?

Mary: The worst thing possible. I didn't know who else to call.

Lorenzo: Nikolas remembered.

Mary: No, but he knows.

Lorenzo: Who told him?

Mary: Would you believe it? After all the lies and all the desperate ways I tried to cover -- in the end, Nikolas heard the truth from me. I slipped up. I -- I made an assumption, opened my mouth and the wrong words came out. It wasn't much of a leap for him to figure out the rest.

Lorenzo: Yeah, he must've been furious.

Mary: I tried to explain to him how lonely I was after Connor died. I was scared and desperate. I wanted him to understand that, yeah, at first I was using him as a substitute for Connor, but I fell in love with him. He didn't want to hear it. He -- he walked out. I don't know where he is or if I'll ever see him again.

Lorenzo: It must be devastating. I'm sorry.

Mary: You really mean that.

Lorenzo: Love is love, no matter how badly or imperfectly expressed. And I am certainly in no position to criticize. In fact, Iíd like to help.

[Knock on door]

Alexis: I came as soon as I got your message. I'm glad you're all right.

Nikolas: Yeah. I hope I didn't say anything to mislead you, Alexis. I know that you are my aunt because I have been told by several people that you are my aunt, and I have read several articles to that effect, but I don't remember you. And I'm not interested in some big, fat, phony, emotional reunion. I asked you to come here because you're supposed to be my lawyer, and I want to know how much Iím worth.

Jason: Congratulations, baby girl. You did a great job. You didn't cry once.

Sam: Oh.

Jason: Aw.

Sam: She knew there was no reason for tears, right, baby? And who would've thought Sonny, Michael, Morgan -- they were all at your christening, and they were so proud of you. They love you, just like Jason and I love you.

[Door opens]

Sam: Oh, you better get used to it --

Ric: Samantha McCall, A.K.A. Sandra McIntire, I have a warrant for your arrest.

Jason: You have no --

Ric: The cover-up didn't work, Jason. We know that Sam killed her own mother.

[Baby cries]

Sam: Wait, there must be a misunderstanding, please.

Ric: Hand over the baby to Jason, please.

Sam: No.

Ric: Hand over the baby now or Iím going to be forced to take him myself.

Sam: Jason --

Jason: It's ok, it's ok, I'll fix it. It's ok, it's ok. Come here, come here, come here. Come here.

Ric: I can't imagine growing up knowing that your mother killed your own grandmother.

[Baby cries]

Sam: Ric, please --

Jason: It's ok, it's ok.

Sam: Please, Ric, just give me a minute with her, please. Please, Ric --

[Door closes]

Sam: It's going to be ok, baby girl. Somehow, Mommy's going to make it ok.

Jason: Emily, Iím --

Ric: Oh, go ahead, Jason, don't stop on my account. Tell me, where were you exactly? Hopefully, not with Sam because, see, she's wanted by the police, and if you were with her, then you'd be considered her accomplice.

Brook Lynn: If there's even one scratch on my guitar, get ready to pay for it.

Lucas: You're the one who came charging out and knocked me down.

Brook Lynn: It was a stupid place for you to stand.

Lucas: Hey, are you crying? You're not really hurt, are you?

Brook Lynn: Look, if there's tears in my eyes, it's only because you didn't hurt my guitar when you tackled me, ok?

Lucas: Not true. You're upset about something.

Brook Lynn: Try because I can't walk out of some diner without being manhandled by a stupid jock! Look, learn to keep your hands to yourself, ok?

Lucas: Hey! Wait! You forgot your --

Dillon: Let me ask you something. What is so secret about wanting to make love? I want to more than ever.

Georgie: You just haven't mentioned anything, Dillon.

Dillon: That's because I didn't want you to feel pressured. I mean, the last time you even brought it up was the boathouse when we discovered that dude that Skye supposedly murdered, and that was, what, more than a month ago.

Georgie: Yeah, I was waiting for you to say something.

Dillon: You know what I think? I think maybe you're a little nervous, maybe a little scared, maybe you don't know -- right place, right time. But it doesn't matter because I'm there for you, and I understand --

Georgie: Oh, my God! It's Lucas! Hey! It is so good to see you. I missed you!

Lois: Of course I was nice to Mr. Alcazar. It's like my Aunt Grace always says, you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.

Ned: What happened to the woman who insisted that she didn't want Lorenzo Alcazar anywhere near L&B?

Lois: I didn't change my mind, exactly. I know what's up. The man may wear it well, but he is straight up gangster, and gangsters make lousy business partners, which is why I had Sonny take his name off the books. But Sage -- she has talent and raw potential. And I think until Brookie decides to step up to the plate, she's our best shot at reaching that all-important teen demographic -- provided, of course, that her uncle/guardian lets her sing for us.

Ned: And how do you propose to persuade him?

Lois: I'm going to let Sage take care of that -- right after I bust her and Trent for being in here after hours without permission.

Ned: Ok, I'm missing the strategy.

Lois: It's called reverse psychology. I am betting that Sage wants to sing for L&B, so she's going to fight for the chance to stick around here.

[Knock on door]

Lois: Oh, right on time.

Trent: Hey, you wanted to see me?

Lois: Mm-hmm. Cool your jets. We're waiting for your partner in crime. Sage should be here any minute.

Trent: I'm sure I can explain away any --

Lois: Yes, Iím sure you can. Glad you could make it.

Sage: Hey, is something wrong?

Lois: It's come to my attention that you two have been performing a little extracurricular studio work on the D.L., which is instant grounds for dismissal -- unless, of course, you come up with something brilliant to say in the next five minutes that's going to make me change my mind.

Courtney: Oh, it's freezing! Oh, my God, you weren't kidding when you said the river was like ice.

Jax: Get out of those wet clothes, and Iíll get the fire going.

Courtney: Ok, turn around.

Jax: Why?

Courtney: Why? Because I have no intention of giving you a peepshow.

Jax: Oh, bite your tongue. I don't peep.

Courtney: I'm just keeping you honest. Turn around. Turn.

Jax: Ok.

Courtney: Ok.

Jax: You know, I'm glad that you're -- you're such a strong swimmer. I was sure when you fell in the river, I'd have to go in and rescue you.

[Courtney chuckles]

Courtney: You didn't have to rescue me today, and you never will, so get used to it.

Jax: Well, you still may need me to catch fish for you since you didn't catch anything.

Courtney: So much for being above sneaking a peek.

Jax: Well, can't blame a guy for trying.

Courtney: Uh-huh. Yeah, well, if you try it again, Jax, I will show you something really fascinating -- your own personal kickboxing demonstration.

Jax: Really?

Alexis: I wanted to tell you the truth, Nikolas, but Emily made a very compelling argument -- that it might be startling for you, so I deferred to her.

Nikolas: Hmm, yeah, well, that ends now. Tell me something, Alexis, does the Cassadine estate go to you in the event of my death?

Alexis: No.

Nikolas: No? No, because, see, I couldn't help but wonder. See, everyone else involved in this has a motive that they won't admit to, and Iím just trying to figure out what yours is.

Alexis: Your best interests.

Nikolas: "Your best --" please. I've heard that one so much I'm choking on it!

Alexis: I'm sure that's probably true. To answer your question, you left money in trust to my daughter, Kristina, your niece. You left money to your sister Lesley Lu. Your will is being challenged by your grandmother. Her name is Helena. She's a very evil woman, and I mean that.

Nikolas: Yeah, well, at least she hasn't lied to me yet.

Alexis: Nikolas, I hope you'll believe that I'm telling you the truth now. You blessedly don't remember your grandmother, and that is a good thing because she is something to be wary of. If she finds out that you're alive, she will stop at nothing to control you.

Nikolas: Right. As opposed to you and Emily and Mary, who's controlled me by deception for months, Alexis -- for months?

Lorenzo: Sorry for interrupting.

Alexis: Well, you are. What do you want?

Lorenzo: I've just seen Mary. She told me what happened. You deserve an explanation of my part in all this. So consider me available whenever you'd like to speak to me.

Nikolas: Yeah, well, you're here now. You'll excuse us, won't you?

Alexis: You are dealing with a very dangerous man, Nikolas. Please don't destroy yourself just to get back at the rest of us.

Nikolas: Well, I'll give you this much -- at least you're the first person to openly account for your lies.

Ric: I was informed by Sheriff Wade of the Bailey's Beach, South Carolina Police Department that Sam McCall is an alias for Sandra McIntire, who was convicted for murder and arson in absentia, a particularly gruesome murder, from what I understand. Sam must have had some real childhood issues to burn her own mother alive. Now, I understand your instinct to want to protect the woman who's carrying your child. Unfortunately, you didn't know how unbalanced and dangerous she was when you slept with her. But I think we need to do what's best for everybody, especially for this unborn child, and you need to turn her in. She can have the baby -- albeit, it'll be in prison. You just take the child and you raise it on your own. You've done that before. Ok, a familiar response. Silence is golden. Could you please instruct your brother to start acting like a father instead of a criminal like he always does and encourage him to make the right decision for an innocent child?

Jason: You know, Ric, I haven't seem Sam since yesterday. She packed her bag, said she was leaving me.

Ric: Really? Am I supposed to believe that?

Jason: Prove that Iím lying.

Ric: Well, I will, eventually. Just like I'm going to find Sam. What you need to do is decide whether this child is going to grow up with one or both of its parents in prison.

Emily: This can't be right. I mean, could Ric be exaggerating or mistaken?

Jason: Emily, Sam is in so much trouble. I don't even know where to start to get her out.

Ned: So you took the job as janitor under false pretenses.

Lois: That's fraud.

Trent: No way. I kept up my part. I do an amazing job cleaning up this studio. Ok, if I happen to work a little in the late hours with Sage, I mean, what's the harm in that?

Lois: Not what you were hired to do.

Trent: Look, I just don't want her talent to go to waste. I mean, Sage -- Sage has a great voice. She just needs better material, and I was trying to provide it.

Lois: Mm-hmm, yeah. If Sage is going to sing for L&B, then the label provides her material -- understood?

Sage: Are you talking to me?

Lois: No, Santa Claus. Who else?

Sage: Are you saying that you want me to sing for your record label, for real?

Lois: Do you need an engraved invitation or what?

Sage: I thought you were just pretending to like me to goad Brook Lynn into singing.

Lois: I'm not going to deny that I want my daughter to sing, but business is business, and I can market you right now.

Sage: Wow.

Lois: Wow. Oh, hey.

Lucas: Excuse me, Iím Lucas Jones.

Lois: Right! I know who you are. You're Bobbie and Tonyís boy -- well, all grown up. Look at you, so handsome. What can I do for you?

Lois: Well, I bumped into a girl outside Kellyís, and she dropped this. And my cousin Georgie told me I could return it here, and you would know how to get it back to her.

Lois: Yeah, it's my daughter's book. Oh, my God.

Ned: Don't tell me that's a diary, full of things that no parent should ever look at.

Lois: Speak for yourself, but no. This is even better. Take a look. Brookie's writing music, and the lyrics look really good.

Alexis: For once, I'm happy to run into you. I was on my way looking for you.

Ric: Well, then allow me to save myself the misery of enduring another one of your harangues. I'm a loathsome, repugnant attorney who misuses the power of my office to pursue some sort of bizarre courtship --

Alexis: Forget about our courtship. We don't have a courtship. And this is important. I want you to find some way to put Lorenzo Alcazar into custody as soon as possible.

Lorenzo: I knew a little bit about Nikolas Cassadine. Father and uncle dead, both murderers. Mother clinically insane. Family fortunes dwindling. My own family isn't quite as gothic, but they've been a burden to me at times. When I saw you in that church and realized that you didn't remember any of that, I envied you. And I meant to leave you in peace until it occurred that you might be helpful to me.

Nikolas: How's that?

Lorenzo: The woman that I love, Carly Corinthos, is tied to Jason Morgan, who's tied to Emily, who's tied to you. I thought I might be able to use that connection to my advantage. In the meantime, you made an excellent employee -- fearless, efficient. And then I came to sympathize with Mary. People do desperate, misguided things in the name of love.

Emily: I kept telling Nikolas how much I love him, how he didn't realize it, but he loved me, too. I told him I was only trying to protect him, and of course that made him even more furious. He not only thinks Iím a liar, he resents me for treating him as if he were incompetent.

Jason: What do you want me to do?

Emily: Nothing. Look, I shouldn't have bothered you. I know your focus is on Sam right now.

Jason: Sam is safe for the moment. I always have time for you. Just tell me what you need.

Emily: Maybe if you talked to him, not to plead my case or anything -- I mean, that's a lost cause right now -- but I'm sure he feels alone, and I think it would help him to have a friend to talk to -- you know, especially someone who understands what he's going through.

Jason: Yeah, I'll try. But, you know, it's not the same thing. My memory's completely destroyed, and Nikolas is actually going to remember.

Emily: I know. No, I realize that, but I don't want the real Nikolas, my Nikolas, to wake up that morning and realize that he's ruined his life in the meantime.

Georgie: It was so great to see Lucas again. I mean, he looks great, doesn't he? I mean, he told me -- well, he wrote me that he was working out for soccer, but I didn't think he --

Dillon: He's writing you?

Georgie: Yeah, we e-mail a couple times a week.

Dillon: About what?

Georgie: Everything. Nothing.

Dillon: Uh-huh. And, um -- are we in the everything category, or is that nothing?

Georgie: Dillon, of course Lucas knows that we're dating. I mean, I really kept him informed when you were temporarily with Sage.

Dillon: I was never with Sage, Georgie.

Georgie: Dillon, Dillon -- look, the thing is about Lucas, no matter what kind of mood I'm in, he always makes me feel better. Ok, like today, for instance. It's -- I was really stressed out about what Brook Lynn told you, but then he walked through the door and it didn't seem like such a big deal anymore. I mean, I know that's a little weird, right?

Dillon: Weird? No, no. That's not weird at all. In fact, that makes perfect sense because when I came here a year ago, you had a raging crush on the guy, and evidently you haven't dropped that.

Georgie: What?

Dillon: That's the real reason we haven't made love, isn't it? Because deep down you're saving yourself for Lucas.

Lois: Please give it a run through, just to see how it sounds?

Ned: Can't you just give it a rest?

Lois: But it might be awful. Just because someone can sing, it doesn't naturally follow that they can write, too. Hey, come on. Aren't you dying to hear the music in our daughter's head?

Ned: All right. Sage, I'm going to need your help.

Sage: Sure.

Ned and Sage (Singing): Something's changed in the way that you're not looking at me something's changed in the way you're not calling if I bring it up, you say it's my imagination all I know is what I feel

Lois: I love what I'm hearing. I think this could be a hit.

Sage: If you're not feeling it anymore just tell me I will

Ned and Sage: Cry a few tears

Sage: And move on oh, baby

Brook Lynn: I don't believe this. You're stealing my song?

Jax: Better?

Courtney: Yes, much better. I'm starting to be able to feel my toes again.

Jax: You know, all teasing aside, my admiration for you is growing by the hour. I'm serious. You know, you've never camped before and you just threw yourself into it, no holds barred. That's good.

Courtney: Well, I wasn't exactly being honest when I said Iíd never camped before.

Jax: Oh, so the truth finally comes out. Do tell.

Courtney: Well, I -- I don't know. I used to love books about pioneers when I was little, and I begged and begged my dad to take me camping, and I finally wore him down when I was about, I don't know, 7 or 8. And my mom, she didn't want any part of it, so my dad and I went alone, and -- I don't know, it was amazing. You know, I mean, for once he wasn't distracted by some sports bet he made or some horse he had running. He wasn't making promises about all the wonderful things we were going to do. He was just there with me, you know, in the moment, telling me stories and making me laugh. I think it was one of the best times of my life. Anyway, shortly after that, my mom and dad split up, and I didn't see my dad for years so I promised myself that I would never go camping again. And I guess I just wanted to freeze that memory in my mind and preserve the magic.

Jax: So what changed your mind?

Courtney: You were hurting, and I wanted to help, and if camping turned out to be magic for you, then so much the better.

Jax: Well, it certainly has helped because of you.

Ric: Why can't you just be simply happy and relieved that your nephew is alive? Why do you want to put Lorenzo Alcazar in jail for the horrible crime of speaking to your nephew?

Alexis: Because he has an agenda. He's going to use Nikolas' memory loss against him or against me. I don't know -- he still holds me responsible for his brother's death.

Ric: I don't know why he would do that -- because you did kill him.

Alexis: You know, not now.

Ric: Look, I'm sorry. The fact remains that Lorenzo hasn't done anything. He hasn't broken the law, so there's no way I can charge him, so I can't arrest him.

Alexis: Since when? I don't know why I wasted my time coming to see you in the first place because not only are you woefully incompetent, you are jaw-droppingly lazy.

Ric: See, here it comes.

Alexis: You're the D.A.; he's a criminal. You excel in trumping up charges. Why don't you trump up a charge against somebody who is actually guilty for a change? That would be novel. Get him off the street before he hurts my nephew.

Nikolas: It's ironic, in a way. You lied to me. You tried to use me -- well, you did use me, but I'm not angry at you. To be quite honest, I'm actually quite impressed. At least you freely admit that your motives were selfish. All I've heard at this point from everyone else is how much people want to love and protect me, as if it justifies lying to my face.

Lorenzo: No. I've always thought you were capable of protecting yourself. And I no longer think that you could help me get Carly, but I do believe that you and I could be valuable assets to one another in a business capacity.

Jason: What are you doing here?

Nikolas: He's my guest. What's your excuse, that you're Emilyís brother?

Sam: Hey, no, no, no. Don't worry about me. I'm fine, ok? You just -- you need to stay where you are. I can't risk anyone finding you. Yeah, I'll come to you as soon as I can arrange it. Just stay strong, ok? Bye.

Emily: The guard let me in. Are you planning to leave again, Sam? Jason puts his freedom on the line for you, and you pay him back by lying to him?

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Dillon: Do we trust each other or not? I'd like to know.

Emily: What are you hiding from him?

Jason: I get that you're angry.

Nikolas: You don't know how I feel.

Ric: Tell me where Sam is, and I'll make sure that you never have to see her again.

Sonny: It doesn't matter anymore what Samís done or hasn't done. She's pregnant
