Lucas: What are you drinking?

Dillon: Actually, I was just on my way out.

Lucas: Oh, stay. My sister owns this place. I can get you anything you want.

Mary: Hi. I'm glad to see you.

Nikolas: I doubt I'll be good company, but --

Mary: Is there something wrong?

Carly: Jax is staying with you?

Jax: Yeah, Courtney insisted.

Carly: Do you have any idea what you are doing?

Courtney: As a matter of fact, I do.

Jason: You don't have to leave.

Sam: Come on, Jason. Everybody knows the baby is Sonnyís.

Jason: You and the baby -- you have a home here for as long as you want.

Ric: So, did Sam tell you that she's in a lot of trouble?

Danny: Everything's ok now.

Ric: Yeah, because Sonny took care of it, mm-hmm. You know Sonny? He's -- he's my brother. He's a friend of Samís.

Danny: Are you the big brother?

Ric: No, no, Sonny's older than I am, but I guess you're Samís big brother, aren't you?

Danny: That's right.

Ric: So I guess you saw the fire, huh? You --

Danny: I'm not supposed to tell you. I -- Sam said never, ever talk about the fire.

Sonny: You spend a lot of time in Ricís office.

Alexis: He's not here. I was just finishing up a call.

Sonny: On his phone? You two starting to work together?

Nikolas: Why are you here?

Emily: I'm meeting Lucky.

Nikolas: Just happened to choose this club?

Emily: That's right.

Nikolas: Hmm. And no chance you're following me?

Lucas: Where are you from?

Dillon: Ahem. I'm -- Iím new to town.

Lucas: I grew up in Port Charles.

Dillon: Did you really? That's great. That's --

Lucas: Maybe I can show you around.

Dillon: No, thanks.

Lucas: Oh, come on. Why show up here looking like that if you don't want to meet guys?

Brook Lynn: What is Lucas doing with Dillon?

Georgie: Teaching him a lesson.

Nikolas: Is this your latest way to look after me? Show up wherever I go, watch from a distance; make sure I don't get into trouble?

Emily: Look, if you want me to leave, I'll leave.

Nikolas: I want you to be honest with me.

Courtney: Here.

Carly: Are you nice and comfy now?

Jax: Yes, thank you, I am.

Carly: Great. Ok, we need to talk.

Courtney: Carly --

Carly: Are you out of mind?

Courtney: Jax isn't strong enough to be left alone, ok?

Carly: So? He can afford to get help around the clock.

Courtney: Jax is my friend, Carly. He just got shot, and I care about him. What?

Carly: I need to ask you -- are you seriously thinking of a relationship with Jax, or are you just trying to prove a point to yourself and to Jason?

Courtney: I like Jax, ok? I forget to worry when Iím with him. I don't have to pray to God that he's going to come home alive and then pretend like everything is normal. God, Carly, I just -- with Jax, I can just live. You know, it's just so much easier.

Carly: Right. You know, if easy is what you want, then Iím sure you'll have it. It just might be a lot lonelier than you think.

Jax: You didn't have to come back on my account.

Courtney: I promised to look after you.

Jax: I told you I can take care of myself. If you want to go running back to Jason --

Courtney: What would you do if I did?

Jason: Let's just talk about this. Where are you going to go? The bike shop? That's no place for you and the baby.

Sam: No, I can find another place.

Jason: How can -- how are you going to pay for it?

Sam: Sonny offered to support me.

Jason: You know what? Take my money, not Sonny's.

Sam: No, Jason, I don't want to take anybody's money, but I don't see the difference between taking Sonny's money or taking your money.

Jason: Well, I'm not married to somebody else. I don't have two other kids, Sam, and you're not in love with me.

Sam: No, but Sonny is not coming back to me. He made that clear. The only thing that is left between us is our daughter.

Jason: Right, and you want to give her the best life you can, right?

Sam: Yeah, that's right.

Jason: I can help.

Sonny: So, you and Ric -- you know -- you guys dating?

Alexis: That's completely inappropriate.

Sonny: Hmm.

Alexis: If you must know, I find him loathsome, repugnant, amoral --

Sonny: Yeah, you used to do that with me.

Alexis: And I -- do what?

Sonny: Well, you used to say that I was ruthless and I had no morals, and you used to use all these long words on purpose and you threw them in my face because you knew I wasn't well-educated. But, see, Ric -- you know, you can't do that with him because he'll know the definition of every --

Alexis: What's your point?

Sonny: Well, my point is that for two people who supposedly, like, hate each other, you guys are hanging around a lot, you know? And now you're in Ricís office.

Alexis: I don't owe you an explanation.

Sonny: I didn't say you did.

Alexis: If you must know, I'm here to gloat.

Sonny: Oh, oh.

Alexis: That's right.

Sonny: Right.

Alexis: Good, old-fashioned humiliation is, you know, what he richly deserves, don't you think?

Sonny: Yeah. Well, I got to admit, you did hand Ricís ass in court today.

Alexis: Yeah, well, that's crude.

Sonny: But I helped you out a little bit, you know.

Alexis: You are always, always compelling.

Sonny: Thank you.

Alexis: You're welcome.

Sonny: No, what Iím saying is, you know, you asked the right questions about, you know, my mother, and how she fell --

Alexis: Right.

Sonny: And he blames he --

Alexis: Well, you know --

Sonny: You made him look like a nut case, right?

Alexis: Well, he has some serious issues regarding his childhood.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah. But the thing is, I never told you about that, and, you know, Ric must've said something. So what I'm curious about is why he's confiding in you.

Ric: Who authorized the two of you to be in my office?

Sonny: Oh, we're not together, Ric. Actually, Alexis was waiting for you.

Alexis: You know, if you're going to be gone for long periods of time like that, and you have this big, important job, it is customary to let --

Ric: Well, my voicemail does work, counselor, not to mention the fact you could leave a message with my assistant. It works for most people.

Alexis: Ok, well, all right. I think you are hiding from your latest defeat -- and he calls me a poor loser.

Ric: Well, you are. I, on the other hand, am a duly sworn district attorney --

Alexis: Which is probably the worst policy move that's ever been made.

Ric: With an extremely heavy caseload, and I was out on an investigation, not that it's any of your business. Why are you here?

Sonny: Oh, uh -- yeah. Listen, Ric, you know, the verdict has been vacated. The murder has been solved. Leave Sam and my baby in peace.

Ric: Sonny, the good father. No wonder you're so devoted to your children. It's a perfect excuse for all the laws that you break, not to mention the misery that you cause.

Sonny: Stay away from my children and stay away from their mothers. They're not yours to use.

Ric: So, have you changed your mind about wanting to send Sonny to prison?

Alexis: Not at all.

Ric: Good. Because I found a way to do it.

Nikolas: One minute you agree to keep your distance, the next you swear you'll never give up on me. Which is it?

Emily: I can't promise to stop loving you, but I'm trying to give you the room you need, and I truly had no idea that you were going to be here tonight.

Brook Lynn: So, let me get this straight. You're deliberately trying to humiliate Dillon, the guy that you swear that you love?

Georgie: No, this is not about embarrassing him.

Brook Lynn: Well, you could've fooled me, Georgie.

Georgie: This is about showing him how difficult and stressful it can be being a girl.

Dillon: I'm meeting someone here.

Lucas: Oh. Where is he?

Dillon: He left.

Lucas: See? Perfect timing. You're available, and so am I.

Dillon: You don't exactly have a confidence problem, do you?

Lucas: Well, from the way you dress, you don't, either.

Brook Lynn: What kind of dog are you?

Jason: There's plenty of space for the baby once she starts to crawl. The terraces are all fenced

Sam: The apartment is great, Jason. That is not the --

Jason: See, you don't know a lot about kids. And I'm not saying you're not going to learn, but it helps to have someone who's been there.

Sam: There is no question that this arrangement would be good for the baby, but what about us?

Jason: What do you mean, "Us"?

Sam: Us, Jason. We are not in love. We're not a couple. Come on, this is just going to be confusing to her.

Jason: No, it's good that we're not in love because the baby's going to be better off. She's not going to see us fighting each other or hurting each other without meaning to.

Sam: Is that what happened with you and Courtney?

Jason: Sam, I have a big apartment, ok? Money is not an issue. You have no home. You have a baby that you're scared to raise alone. I don't see what the problem is. I think I could help you. But that's up to you.

Carly: Jason -- oh, are you leaving? Don't let me stop you.

Sam: It turns out Iím not going anywhere. Jason and I are going to live together.

Courtney: Say I walked out now and went back to Jason. What would you do?

Jax: I didn't think you'd go back.

Courtney: Oh, I see. So that offer to care for yourself was completely insincere? You fully expected me to stay?

Jax: No, no, no, I never expect. I just hoped.

Courtney: Jax, this may come as a shock to you, but I don't find you nearly as adorable as you seem to think.

Jax: No, no, no, I understand. I understand that for the most part you think I am shallow, vain, and useless.

Courtney: I'm glad we got that straight.

Jax: Yes, but the fact remains that you're enjoying yourself, ok? You've gotten used to smiling. You actually look forward to what's going to happen next instead of dreading it. So this might be hard for you to admit, but your life is actually better with me in it.

Ric: I found Samís brother. His name is Danny. He's developmentally disabled, and I'm pretty sure that he witnessed the fire. When I pressed him for specifics, however, he got a little upset, so I backed off.

Alexis: How uncharacteristically benevolent of you.

Ric: Contrary to your cherished belief, I am not a bully. I figure it's going to be hard enough for this kid to get on the stand and testify at the trial, so I didn't want to press him twice for it.

Alexis: Do you think you can subpoena him?

Ric: As soon as I get the charges filed against Sam. The verdict against her was vacated, so there's no chance of double jeopardy.

Alexis: I picked up on that in law school.

Ric: I'm sure you did. Look, Danny is the perfect witness. He'll tell everything that he knows, and then Iíll go to Sam and Iíll offer a plea of a lesser charge in exchange for testimony against Sonny and Jason.

Alexis: She may turn you down. She appears to be very devoted to Sonny.

Ric: Well, then it'll go to the jury and she'll be found guilty. In which case, David Barron -- the Texas convict's confession will be proved to be a lie.

Alexis: You still need to establish some sort of link to Sonny.

Ric: Well, I have a witness that overheard Sonny admit to perjury and obstruction. You.

Sonny: Your sister's right. Ric's still trying to make a case against Sam.

Jason: What, you just came from his office?

Sonny: Yep. Alexis was there, and I tell you right now, she's working with him.

Jason: Ok, Sonny, I talked --

Sonny: She was using his phone like it was her office, not his, and she gave me that look of guilty, you know that kind -- guilty and angry at the same time? She knows I lied. And I can guarantee you right now she's working with Ric to prove it. You've got to move Samís brother tonight. Because if Ric gets a hold -- what's -- what's the brother's name?

Jason: Danny, Danny.

Sonny: Ok. If Ric gets a hold of Danny, it's not going to be hard to figure out that he started the fire. Which, you know, makes the confession that freed Sam a lie, which gives Ric everything he needs to charge me with perjury.

Jason: Hey, it's no problem to move Danny.

Sonny: Ok, I'll explain it to Sam --

Jason: Well, I can do it. She's here.

Sonny: Well, just give me five minutes to get my head on straight here, and I'll get her a house --

Jason: Sonny, that's what Iíve been trying to tell you. She doesn't need one. Sam and the baby are going to stay with me.

Brook Lynn: So you invite me down here, and then I come and you're hitting on another girl?

Lucas: Was I supposed to meet you? I must have forgot.

Dillon: Hey, you know, obviously, you guys have a lot to talk about, so I'm going to go.

Brook Lynn: So, I take it back. You're not a dog. You're just an insensitive, heart-stomping jerk.

Lucas: Do you have any idea what's going on?

Brook Lynn: Yeah. Look, Georgie asked you to hit on Dillon, and I get that. But, you know, ok, so, she's in love and she's not thinking clearly, but what is your excuse?

Dillon: Ok, is something going on between your cousin and Brook Lynn?

Georgie: Not that I know of.

Dillon: Good, because the guy's a sleaze.

Emily: Did you ever get around to scheduling that therapy session?

Nikolas: Uh-uh. No, there's no point. I mean, I'll either remember or I won't.

Emily: And don't you want to?

Nikolas: It's the wanting, Emily, that makes everything so difficult. To spend all day, every day, wanting something that may never happen wears you down, burns you out, you know?

Emily: Just don't give up, Nikolas, please? There's so much waiting for you.

Lucky: Em? I'm sorry I'm late. Is everything ok?

Nikolas: Emily was just saying she didn't follow me here.

Lucky: She didn't.

Nikolas: Oh, well, maybe someone should leave.

Lucky: There's the door.

Nikolas: Enjoy your evening.

Emily: Lucky, let's go. Come on, he's in a terrible mood.

Lucky: No, he's the one who should be leaving.

Emily: Look, he's still Nikolas. He's still the person we love. He's angry and confused, and he hurts all the time, Lucky. Doesn't he deserve a little extra patience?

Nikolas: Oh -- no, I'm sorry it took so long. Come on, sit down. I didn't mean to leave you alone.

Mary: I was just about to make a graceful exit.

Nikolas: I'm glad you didnít.

Mary: Me, too.

Lucas: It's not like Dillon is Mr. Perfect. He slept around on Georgie. He really hurt her, and if she wants to pay him back in a totally harmless way, I'm happy to help.

Dillon: Maybe we should try to get Brook Lynn away from Lucas. I mean, I'm sure the only reason she went over there is to rescue me.

Georgie: Why would you need rescuing? You could've walked away at any time.

Dillon: Oh, believe me, I tried. Your cousin, the slickster, wouldn't take no for an answer. I swear, I should've just let him pick me up so I could see the look on his face when he realized he picked up a guy in drag.

Jax: You saved my life.

Courtney: Oh, I'm -- if I hadn't shown up, I'm sure you would've found some other way to handle Faith.

Jax: Oh, so you're refusing to take responsibility for your actions?

Courtney: Oh, I get it. What is it, the whole reversal on the folk custom -- what, I saved your life, now Iím supposed to take care of you forever?

Jax: Well, naturally, I assumed that's why you brought me back here, unless it was just an excuse to spend more time with me. Hmm?

Courtney: Look, you got shot by a woman who was running for her life from my brother. I felt -- I felt obligated to help you recover.

Jax: Obligated? Not the slightest hint of attraction?

Courtney: Nope.

Jax: No personal interest in wiping my fevered brow?

Courtney: You don't look feverish from here.

Jax: No, actually, I'm quite warm. Why don't you feel my forehead?

Courtney: No, that's ok.

[Knock on door]

Courtney: Oh -- that might be the deli. I ordered chicken soup for you. Hey --

Nurse: I'm here for Mr. Jacks.

Courtney: Uh-huh. I bet you are. Um -- he's right over there on the couch.

Nurse: Mr. Jacks? I'm here to give you a sponge bath.

Jax: Um -- I hope you don't mind. I just -- I needed some assistance, and I didn't think that you'd want to do that.

Courtney: Oh, well, you -- you thought right.

Alexis: Anything I heard is protected by attorney-client privilege.

Ric: Well, technically, that only applies with your relationship with Sam.

Alexis: Sonny's paying the bill.

Ric: Yeah, but Sam is the only client on record.

Alexis: If you put me up on that stand, I will deny everything.

Ric: I see. So you're going to perjure yourself, is that it?

Alexis: I'll be unable to recall all the details --

Ric: Huh, in order to protect Sonny?

Alexis: In order to protect myself.

Ric: One last show of devotion to Sonny? Is that it, Alexis?

Alexis: I want him to go to prison! Is that what you want to hear? I want you to win! I want you to be avenged of your miserable childhood and every slight, real or imagined --

Ric: What does that have to --?

Alexis: That ever he heaped upon your blameless, innocent head! I want to -- I want to see the jury find him guilty so that I can for once stand there and feel vindicated that justice was finally done! But I will not, under any circumstances, testify for you on that stand!

Ric: All right, shh, calm down. Just sit down, will you?

Alexis: Don't --

Ric: Just sit down. Breathe. Relax.

Alexis: I am not attracted to you, if you think that's what this is about.

Ric: Will you shut up and breathe?

Alexis: I am not --

Ric: Listen to me. Take this. Take it. Look, I understand. I understand why you don't want to testify. I understand that. If Sonny -- if somehow Sonny gets acquitted, then you're going to be left twisting in the wind. And you can't risk that.

Alexis: No, I canít.

Ric: You mind telling me why?

Sonny: So Samís -- she's upstairs?

Jason: Yeah, she's -- she's unpacking.

Sonny: So she -- she was going to leave?

Jason: Yeah, she was on her way out the door.

Sonny: Why did you stop her? I don't -- I don't think it's right that you're asking her to stay.

Jason: Sonny, this is for the baby. We -- we both know Sam doesn't know anything about kids, and she's going to need somebody, and I've been through it before with Michael.

Sonny: I'll get her a nanny.

Jason: The nanny's not going to love the baby.

Sonny: Jason, it's not your daughter.

Jason: Sonny, it doesn't matter. I mean, when Michael was born, he didn't even care that I wasn't his father. He just needed somebody to hold him, when he cried; to talk to him until he fell asleep. He needed me to make him feel safe, and that's what your baby's going to need, but you can't do that now.

Sonny: A lot of men have two families, Jason. Maybe not this way. You live with one, you visit the other, you pay child support. I mean, it's not that big -- a lot of men do it, so I don't know what you're talking about.

Jason: Why should the baby and Sam be alone when they're safe right here?

Sonny: You're the one who doesn't want to be alone, and I -- I can understand that. You broke up with Courtney. You feel like, you know --

Jason: This isn't about me. Do you think Sam can raise that baby alone?

Sonny: What if I ask you to give this up?

Jason: I'm just asking you to trust me that I would never hurt your daughter or her mother. Ok, I'm not trying to steal your daughter, Sonny. I just think she deserves the best life that she can have.

Sonny: I need to speak with Sam.

Jason: Ok, I'll get Danny moved.

Sonny: Sam?

Sam: Where's Jason?

Sonny: I need to speak to you alone.

Sam: Um -- I guess he told you.

Sonny: I'm telling you, it's not going to work.

Mary: Do you want to order dinner?

Nikolas: No. I'm not really that hungry, but you go ahead.

Mary: It might help to get something in your stomach.

Nikolas: Help with what?

Mary: You're drinking a lot.

Nikolas: I'm sorry; Iím used to it. You go ahead, though.

Brook Lynn: So Dillon and Georgie are gone. I hope they went to go talk about this.

Lucas: That'd be good.

Brook Lynn: See? You want them together, too.

Lucas: I just don't want her asking me to hit on him again.

Emily: Thanks for giving me time to warn Jason.

Lucky: That's a nice try, but I know you're not thinking about your brother.

Emily: I don't know what to do for Nikolas. I don't know how to make it better.

Lucky: You can't, Em, all right? You just have to make it better for you. You can't live your own life setting yourself up to get hurt, ok?

Nikolas: Hey -- get your hands off of her!

Emily: Nikolas, what --

Nikolas: You get your hands off her!

Emily: Nikolas, stop! Ok, just stop!

Carly: He's not back.

Jason: I came to see you. Do you remember what you said that night you showed up pregnant with Michael? You know, I was having a meeting and I heard you yelling in the hall, and I opened the door and you were standing there soaking wet, and you said --

Carly: "I did something that you're really not going to like."

Jason: Now it's my turn. I have done something that -- that you don't like.

Carly: You chose Sam over me. Over me. How could you do that, Jase? How could you? I don't really care how bad I've ever screwed up. You know how much I love you, and that I would never, ever betray you like this! That I would fight for you against anyone, and you lied to me for that tramp! Why, Jason? Why? When did she become more important to you than me?

Jason: She's not, Carly.

Carly: Prove it. Prove it. Just kick her out, then.

Jason: Carly, you know I can't do that.

Carly: Why?

Jason: But that doesn't mean Iím choosing Sam over you! You can trust me. I did not betray you, and I never will, Carly.

Carly: Why did you say you were the father of her baby?

Jason: Because I wanted to give you time to realize that you didn't want to leave.

Carly: So, what, you did it for me?

Jason: No, I did it for all of you, especially Michael. He needs his parents together, Carly. You know, and that's -- that's something Samís baby is never going to have, but I can give her the second-best thing.

Carly: Oh, so you want to take Sonny's place?

Jason: No, no, I -- Sonny is the father, ok? I can't replace him. But it's not good for anybody if he's torn in two. You know, this way he can be here with you and the boys and know that his daughter's safe.

Carly: Across the hall? All right, Jason. I'm not saying this is right, because it's not. What about you?

Jason: What?

Carly: What? I mean, you couldn't possibly love Sam.

Jason: The worst I've ever hurt was when I was in love. It's just easier not to.

Carly: Easier? Do you know that's the same thing Courtney just told me? And I am going to tell you the same thing I told her. "Easy" may be a hell of a lot lonelier than you think.

Sonny: I -- I realize things seem pretty out of control right now.

Sam: No, not anymore.

Sonny: Jason, you know, seems like an anchor, somebody who's stable and reassuring, and he is, but he has no idea why he's asked you to stay.

Sam: And you do?

Sonny: Jason's lonely since he broke up with Courtney. It didn't work out. He thinks he -- he wants the baby to need him.

Sam: The baby does need him, Sonny.

Sonny: I'm the baby's father, Sam, so just --

Sam: You are married with two other children.

Sonny: I will give you anything you need, you know that. I will -- child support -- whatever you need, Iíll --

Sam: Sonny, I could take care of this baby if I wanted to. Lots of women are single mothers. I could handle it. They managed, so could I. But I am lucky. I have somebody who is willing to open up their life and their heart and has room for our daughter. And I believe she'll be happier with Jason, so Iím staying.

Sonny: She's going to be confused. She's going to be confused.

Sam: I'm sorry if you don't like it, but I cannot base my decisions on what works for you anymore.

Sonny: You still care about me, right? No, I'm asking -- you still care about me?

Sam: That is not fair.

Sonny: Well, you're going to be able to live across the hall from me and Carly, see us every day? Are you going to feel good about that?

Sam: No, Sonny, Iím not.

Sonny: Then why do you want to put yourself through this hurt? I know what it's about because I've been through it. I don't want to watch you go through it.

Sam: This is not your decision to make. You are the father of my baby, but you are not in charge of my life.

Sonny: I never said I was. And, look, you know, but -- I can't make you do anything you don't want to do, but I'm telling you right now, you've got to understand something. Jason's my best friend, there's nobody I respect more, but I will not let him take my place, and I won't allow anyone -- anyone -- to shut me out of my daughter's life.

Alexis: If it were just me, I might be willing to take that risk. But I have a daughter who I would like to see grow up in a stable and loving home. And to that end, I make it a point of not openly antagonizing Sonny.

Ric: Fair enough.

Alexis: Really?

Ric: I understand your reluctance to testify. When I charge Sonny with perjury, I won't call you as a witness.

Alexis: I'm not sure that I believe you.

Ric: You want it in blood?

Alexis: A signature in blood is required, I believe, for a pact with the devil. But, of course, you would know more about that than I do.

Ric: You know, I just did something very nice for you. The customary response is "Thanks."

Alexis: I'll thank you when Sonny is in prison without my testimony.

Ric: So, tell me, are you trying to cover your back, or are you trying to save Sonny even now?

Jax: Say, why did you -- why did you choose nursing as opposed to, say, modeling?

Nurse: Not tall enough.

Jax: Well, you could do print. You're certainly beautiful. Although, that would be a waste of your soothing touch and very --

Courtney: Oh, God, enough!

Jax: Sorry, did you say something?

Courtney: I said, you're clean enough.

Jax: But we haven't even gotten to the lower half.

Courtney: But thank you so much -- Iím sure you'll survive -- thank you so much for coming. I really, really appreciate your professionalism.

Nurse: But I'm supposed to finish bathing him --

Courtney: Uh-huh, yeah.

Nurse: And schedule a time to come back tomorrow.

Courtney: Uh-huh, Mr. Jacks is healing amazingly fast, ok? So if we need you again, Iíll be sure to call and set up another visit. Thank you. Thanks. Bye. Thanks. Ugh.

Jax: What? I was -- I was just making polite conversation.

Courtney: Oh, yeah, ok. "Oh, you should've been a model." Does anyone ever actually fall for that stupid line?

Jax: Well, she was very beautiful.

Courtney: Ew.

Jax: You know what? Since you sent her packing --

Courtney: Hey!

Jax: You're going to have to finish the job.

Courtney: Oh, the shower works, Jax. So why don't you take your cane, your inflated ego, and your lower half, and go run cold water over all three of them.

Jax: You realize that you're jealous, right?

Courtney: No, no, no, no, no. I am just grateful because every time you make a fool of yourself, Jax, it just reminds me of all the reasons I am going to win this bet. Ugh.

Jason: I moved Danny to a safe house.

Sam: Why?

Jason: Well, because Ricís a sore loser. It's better to keep Danny out of sight until things settle down. Here, this is for you from the hospital.

Sam: It's probably just a bunch of birthing -- are you sure Dannyís safe, Jason? The safe house is just a precaution?

Jason: Yeah.

Sam: Yeah? Because if it wasn't an emergency, I really don't appreciate the way you left me to be blindsided by Sonny.

Jason: He wanted to talk to you.

Sam: Jason, you should've warned me! Sonny hates the idea of us being together, and there I was stuck defending something I wasn't even sure I wanted!

Jason: Ok! If you're, you know, having second thoughts -- look, I'm not trying to put pressure on you, Sam.

Sam: Yeah, well, that's the part that surprised me, because the more Sonny fought it, the more I realized I want this. It's right for the baby; she's the one who matters, bottom line.

Jason: I think so, too.

Sam: Are you sure, Jason? Are you sure that you can love her unconditionally, and you always put her first, no matter what? Are you sure about that?

Jason: You know I will.

Sam: Ok. All right, then living here, I think, is the best gift I can give her.

Carly: Come on, you know how Jason is. Once he has made up his mind, it is set in stone.

Sonny: I guess Jason figured, you know what -- you know, he can be with Sam and the baby when I can't, spends time with -- I don't know, whatever.

Carly: Well, you don't seriously think this is going to work?

Sonny: No, I don't, but you know what? Jason and Sam are going to have to figure that out on their own. I mean, once he sees that, you know, Sam is unhappy, once he realizes that -- that the baby is going to be confused because she's going to pick up on the tension between the adults, he'll let it go.

Carly: Yeah, well, I'm pretty sure Samís real happy about her proximity to you.

Sonny: Sam and I aren't together anymore. I'm with you now. It's not perfect. Maybe it never will be perfect. But it's the only life I want.

Ric: Look, I understand the impulse to want to protect Sonny in spite of yourself.

Alexis: You're projecting.

Ric: Probably. Look, I despise him. I really do. But at the same time, he's all that's left of my mother. And as much as I want to prove that she was wrong to choose him, there is another part of me that wants her to be right. I want him to be that special and wonderful. I want him to be worth all the hell that she went through. I think if he ever once reached his -- his hand out to me, I'd -- I'd honestly be happy. Well, there you go. You got a glimpse into my perverse motives and twisted psyche.

Alexis: I know what it's like to want to beat someone almost as badly as you want to make them care.

Ric: No. Alexis, you can't make somebody care. Sometimes you just have to settle for winning.

Man: He jumped him out of nowhere.

Mary: It was a mistake. He just had too much to drink.

Officer: That's no excuse for assault, ma'am.

Emily: Look, it was one punch. Really, there's no problem. We'll all just go home. I --

Officer: Lucky, I should write this up. But if you want to call in a favor --

Nikolas: No. No, no, you go ahead, Lucky! You have your brother, the violent drunk -- drunk, sent back to the island where he belongs, where he can't be a danger to himself and everybody else! You go ahead and do that, Lucky! Go ahead and do that!

Lucky: Send him to lockup.

Mary: No --

Emily: Lucky --

Mary: Wait -- you're hateful, both of you!

Emily: You can't do this! What are you doing?

Nikolas: Don't you stand up for me!

Emily: How could you do that to him?

Lucky: You know what? He's out of control. You know what? Just pretending he's not is only going to make it worse.

Emily: All you've done is push him further away, Lucky.

Nikolas: I don't need you! I don't need any of you!

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Lorenzo: You only get one chance. Make it count.

[Courtney screams]

Courtney: Get down!

Emily: He doesn't want to be bailed out.

Helena: Nikolas has no choice in the matter.

Jason: I need you to help me.

Carly: How long do you plan on hiding behind Jason?
