Sam: You know, those parenting books are pretty amazing. You should probably read them, too.

Jason: Why? Kids are unique. You can't just lump them all into categories and say this is the right thing to do.

Sam: You do it your way; I will do it mine. At least you've had some experience. Jason, Iím flying blind here, and I'm just -- I'm not ashamed to admit that, yeah, maybe I might need a little bit of help.

Jason: Ok, but you're going to be fine, Sam. You don't need books to tell you how to be a mother. You're just going to know.

Sam: By the way, I -- I found a nanny service, and I would really like to start conducting interviews as soon as possible. You know, there's no telling how long it's going to take to find somebody trustworthy and competent, you know?

Jason: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.

Sam: Hey, look at this.

Jason: "Baby Michelangelo"?

Sam: Yeah.

Jason: You got to be kidding me, right?

Sam: Well, it teaches you how to educate the baby in utero. And I want to start listening to classical music. And if you don't mind, I would really like for you to start reading Shakespeare to her before we go to bed at night.

Jason: To your stomach?

Sam: Yeah, for now.

Jason: Huh. What if she wants to sleep?

Sam: It's funny because I think she can still hear in her sleep.

Jason: Ok, Sam, I get where you're coming from, but all this is just a little over the top.

Sam: I've already put my daughter at a disadvantage, ok? Her biological father isn't available to her -- not the way I planned, anyway -- and she wasn't planned, as a matter of fact, and I think -- I think that's enough mistakes already, Jason. From now on, I want to try. I want us to try and do everything perfect.

Sonny: There was a fedora on my terrace.

Max: I know.

Sonny: How the hell does that happen, Max? How does somebody just walk right past the man I pay to guard my -- they just walk right into the apartment? Were you on a break? Taking a nap? What?

Max: Look, last night was out of the ordinary, all right? That electrical storm knocked out power all over town --

Sonny: I don't want any excuses, Max! Nobody should just walk into my house! I don't care what the weather is. You want to check something out, cover your post! You know that by now! Right? Happens again, we're done. You understand?

Max: Yes, sir.

Sonny: Ok, get out of here.

Carly: Ooh. Poor Max. He hates it when you yell at him.

Sonny: Then he shouldn't give me reason to. Where's your bags?

Carly: Upstairs.

Sonny: I thought you were going to search for your dad when the storm moves through.

Carly: I am. I came up with a better plan.

Lorenzo: Hey. Glad you called. Your timing was perfect. My plane just touched down. I had to go to South America on business. This isn't social, is it? What happened?

Lois: You need to brace yourself, Lorenzo.

Lorenzo: Ok.

Lois: This isn't going to be easy to say, so I'll just say it. Your niece is dead.

Emily: I'm so furious I could scream. Nikolas, you shouldn't be here, and the fact that you are is a travesty.

Nikolas: It's all right. Just calm down, ok?

Emily: No, I won't calm down! This is flat-out wrong, and I'm not going to sit by quietly while law enforcement steamrolls all over you. Listen, I demand that you release Nikolas immediately.

Ric: I'm sure that that works with the Quartermaine staff, Emily, but it's not going to get you very far here. I need to know the details concerning Mary Bishop's shooting.

Emily: You want details? I'll give you the only one that matters. Mary Bishop murdered two people. How dare you arrest Nikolas for defending himself against her.

Carly: Ok, so remember when Ric and I broke through the wall at Kellyís, and we found The Cellar?

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: Ok, when we did that, I found a box of papers, and it was filled with Ruby's stuff. Papers, memorabilia, all of that kind of stuff, and I didn't open it at the time out of respect for her privacy, if you can believe that. And I didn't want to destroy it. So what I did is I left it in a wall in one of the booths of the cellar. So Iím going to go in there. I'm going to find out what's inside.

Sonny: You going to bust up one of the booths in The Cellar?

Carly: Yeah, I am. Look, Ruby ran the brothel where Mama works. She's the one who arranged my adoption, so I -- there's got to be something there. She had to have kept records, so there might even be a list of clients, customers my mom had on a regular basis. My father -- his identity could be right under my nose.

Man: When you gave me this and asked me to break into your daughter's apartment, you left out the part about her being Sonny Corinthos' wife.

Bobbie: Hmm. Well, I need the diary. Did you get it?

Man: No. That's the funny thing about armed guards. They make it hard for you to walk in and stroll around, searching at your leisure. I did manage to get in, though -- long enough to get stuck on the terrace. You're going to pay me double. I barely escaped with my life.

Bobbie: But you did! No one saw you?

Man: No.

Bobbie: So Carly doesn't know that I sent you?

Man: Not from anything I did.

Bobbie: Ok, so everything's fine. So, all you have to do is go back, try again.

Man: No way.

Bobbie: I'll pay you triple.

Man: That must be some diary.

Bobbie: Well, it does contain some information that my daughter must not have. Carly can never find out who her father is.

Lorenzo: Sage is dead?

Lois: Lorenzo, I am so sorry.

Lorenzo: Tell me what happened.

Lois: Brook Lynn called me. When that phone rang in the middle of the night, I knew it couldn't be good. Sage was over at the Quartermaine house with Brookie and Dillon and Georgie and their friend Trent, too. They were trapped there because some truck crashed and blocked the main gate. Some maniac got in the house and started killing people. First Sage, then Trent, rest their souls. Apparently, this woman is a total nut job.

Lorenzo: Woman?

Lois: Someone named Mary Bishop.

Lorenzo: Oh.

Emily: I don't think you should say anything, at least not until we can get Alexis here.

Ric: I've already called her. She should be here any minute.

Nikolas: Why would you call my attorney for me?

Ric: Look, I have no desire to violate your legal rights, Nikolas. Contrary to popular belief, that is not what Iím about. But I do need to get to the bottom of Mary Bishop's shooting. I've gotten Macís statement. I would like to get your version of the events, and I am prepared to wait for Alexis for you to do that. Here she is.

Alexis: Are you all right?

Nikolas: Fine.

Emily: He's not fine, Alexis. He's being railroaded for a crime he didn't commit. What's the matter, Ric -- you getting bored hauling Sonny and Jason in every five minutes, and now you've moved on to Nikolas?

Ric: Emily is understandably upset.

Emily: Oh, don't patronize me.

Alexis: From what I understand, this is a clear-cut case of self-defense. Mary Bishop snapped. She killed already two people, and she was a threat to both of them.

Ric: Well, then perhaps you want to explain to me why Nikolas grabbed Macís gun and fired upon her as she was walking away.

Nikolas: I had no problem telling Lansing what happened.

Alexis: Are you sure? You don't have to.

Nikolas: I know my rights. I've certainly had them read to me enough lately.

Ric: Any objections to being recorded?

Alexis: No objection.

Ric: This is a statement provided by Nikolas Cassadine concerning the events that lead up to Mary Bishop's shooting. Present are Mr. Cassadine's counsel, Alexis Davis, as well as Emily Quartermaine, who witnessed the events. Conducting the interview is District Attorney Lansing. The date is August 31, 2004. Anytime you're ready.

Nikolas: Ahem. I assume that you know my grandmother had me committed to Shadybrook.

Ric: Yes, Iím aware that you were there. I'm also aware that you'd escaped. I'm not sure how Emily fits into all of that, though.

Emily: I was there to help Nikolas.

Nikolas: After we broke out, we went to the Quartermaine estate and eventually made our way up to Emilyís bedroom, where Sage Alcazar walked in on us.

Ric: Where is Emilyís bedroom located?

Nikolas: Second floor.

Ric: I see. What was Sage Alcazar doing wandering around the second floor of the Quartermaine mansion?

Nikolas: We didn't ask. No one wanted to be seen, so we agreed to pretend that it never happened.

Emily: Nikolas and I went to the kitchen and we grabbed some food and wine, and we came back to my room, and that's when Faith kind of stumbled in.

Faith: Now, the thing is I can't have anyone know that Iím here, especially your big brother Jason, so I'm afraid to say that I will be the only one leaving this room alive.

Nikolas: Emily distracted Faith just enough to where I could grab her.

[Faith grunts]

Nikolas: We struggled, and Faith's gun went off.


Nikolas: Faith took off, and we chased her down in the basement and lost her. I decided to take a look in the freezer, and it was obvious that someone -- assuming Faith -- had been hiding inside.

Emily: So, I went to warn my family that Faith was in the house.

Nikolas: I stayed behind because I didn't want her family to know that I was there.

Emily: We assumed that it was Faith who had knocked Nikolas out.

Nikolas: I went back to the boathouse and --

Emily: And then I found him there, and that's when we found the butcher knife which was embedded in the boathouse deck, right?

Nikolas: Right, right. I heard a noise outside, so we went out to investigate, and there was a knife. I just started to feel weird, like everything was getting out of control. I didn't want Emily in danger, so I decided to turn myself in. We went back to the house, and that's when we heard that Sage Alcazar had been killed.

Emily: And we assumed that Faith must have done it.

Nikolas: Until, in comes Faith with stab wounds on her back. And that's when I realized that someone else was in the house and I thought that it might be my grandmother, Helena Cassadine. So Emily and I went to look for her.

Emily: And that's when Dillon kind of ran in and he said that my mother and father had the killer trapped in the boathouse.

Nikolas: Right. I convinced Emily to stay inside the house, and I went with Dillon.

Emily: And a few minutes later, someone wearing a mask attacked me with a knife. I literally fought for my life, and at one point, I was able to grab hold of the mask, and I pulled it off. It was Mary. At least, it looked like her.

Ric: What do you mean?

Emily: Mary was gone. This -- this thing in front of me was almost feral, insisting that Nikolas was Connor, and she admitted to killing Sage, thinking that it was me.

Ric: Ok, what about Trent?

Emily: Probably in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Ric: Ok, um -- how did you get away from Mary?

Emily: She kept coming at me, and at one point I was able to knock her off balance and I grabbed hold of the knife, but even that didn't stop her.

Nikolas: Once I saw that it was Faith in the boathouse, I realized that Emily was alone. By the time I got up to her room, Mary was already gone.

Ric: Mac figured that she'd go to the boathouse and try to escape by the lake, and he was right.

Nikolas: Yeah. We caught up to her. Mary had a knife. She kept -- she kept calling me Connor. It's her dead husband's -- she kept saying that she was coming to rescue me from Emily. She physically threatened Emily and then she walked away, stopped, turned around, and said that she was -- she was coming for me. I yelled at Mac to shoot her, and he didnít so I grabbed his gun and I shot her myself, this lunatic who tried to kill the woman I love. She said she was never going to stop coming, Ric. So I shot at her to protect Emily. And you know what? I'd do it again.

Lorenzo: My niece is dead. Uh -- I suppose I should -- she needs to be buried. Cremated. I don't know what she would want. We never spoke about what would happen in the event of her death. She was 16 years old.

Lois: I'm so sorry. I'm sorry. I keep saying that, and I -- I don't know what to do, you know. I -- I called down to the morgue to see if Sage's body was there. The police have ordered an autopsy. I guess that's what they do in the event of a murder case. Um -- Lorenzo, let me take you home, ok, and then Iíll go to the PCPD --

Lorenzo: No, no, no. I'm going.

Lois: I don't know if that's such a good idea.

Lorenzo: I want to talk to the police. I want to know exactly what happened to her.

Lois: I'll go with you.

Lorenzo: Thank you.

Jason: Will you listen to me? I was actually trying to give you a compliment.

Sam: You were? Ok, well, you know I -- I really wouldn't want to miss that, so go ahead.

Jason: Ok, well -- you have better instincts than you think, but you don't need all this junk to tell you how to love your kid.

Sam: You are just trying to distract me from my chosen course because you don't want me to listen to classical music. You probably hate it, right? And you certainly don't want to plow through Shakespeare, so I get it.

Jason: Ok, if she's going to listen to music, why not the blues?

Sam: Really? The blues?

Jason: Yeah.

Sam: You're suggesting that I bombard this -- this precious little girl with life's misery and pain before she's even out of the womb?

Jason: What do you think Shakespeareís about?

Sam: Ok. All right. Well -- you have a point. We'll compromise, then. Blues are ok, but if blues are ok, Shakespeare stays, too, then.

Jason: No -- well, how about, you know, how about a book, you know, about Africa? I used to read Michael a travel book --

Sam: Michael?

Jason: Yeah. He loved it.

Sam: Yeah, Michaelís a boy.

Jason: Yeah.

Sam: I suppose fairy tales, out?

Jason: That's no good.

Sam: No, I didn't think so.

Jason: Yeah.

Sam: Ok, well then -- let's compromise, compromise. History. How about history? No wars, though. Ok?

Jason: That's -- that sounds good. That's a deal.

Sam: Ok, good. See, we are -- we're pretty good at this.

Jason: See, I would try to tell you this, if you would just, you know, listen --

[Phone rings]

Jason: To me sometime.

Sam: Hello.

Dillon: Sam? Hey, it's Dillon. Um -- I'm sorry to bother you. Is Jason there?

Sam: Ahem. Yeah, Jasonís -- he's right here. And it's not a bother, ok? You can call anytime, Dillon.

Jason: What's going on?

Dillon: God, I love the way you get right to the point. Um -- uh -- I need a huge favor. Is there any way that you can meet me at Kellyís, like, right away?

Carly: Ok. That's it. That's the booth where I left Ruby's papers. Ok.

Sonny: Hey, why don't you let me get the --

Carly: What, are you afraid? Are you afraid I might take this and use it on you?

Sonny: Not unless you were mad at me or something. Something you're not telling me?

Carly: Oh, well -- no, you're safe.

Sonny: All right.

Carly: This booth is the only thing that's in danger. Let's see. Sonny -- oh. The key to my father's identity is in here. I can feel it. You know, Sonny, there's no law that says that my father had to be a John. Mama could have had a separate life.

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: Some secret life away from Ruby that she didn't know about, and maybe my dad didn't -- didn't know that my mom was a prostitute, and then -- then I could be conceived in love. And if that's the case, then my father will be happy to know that I exist. Ooh. What, Sonny?

Sonny: Um -- Ruby's brothel. Bobby's name's in here, along with some other clients.

Carly: It has to be under B. Look. Sonny, there are three customers in here with the initials J.D. One of these people could be my father.

Lucky: I was afraid you were going to be here.

Emily: Yeah, I was just at the police station where they're holding Nikolas for the horrible crime of defending me from a knife-wielding maniac!

Lucky: What, so you decided to confront Mary? That's not a good idea. She's not exactly up for a fight.

Emily: Yeah, I was hoping she'd died.

Lucky: Be careful what you wish for. The doctors don't think she's going to make it. If she doesn't, that means Nikolas could be looking at a murder charge.

Alexis: Lucky for you, Helenaís deplorable plot to have you declared insane might work to your benefit.

Nikolas: How?

Alexis: If Mary dies and you're charged with murder, I can plead diminished capacity.

Nikolas: You're not doing that. I'm not the crazy one here, Mary is.

Alexis: It's a legal strategy, Nikolas.

Nikolas: She threatened to kill Emily. She had a knife. She already killed two people. Now, I was in the right to shoot her. The only thing I'll allow you to plead is what happened -- self-defense.

Lorenzo: I understand that Mary Bishop murdered my niece.

Ric: Yes, it's apparent that Mary Bishop suffered a complete psychotic break.

Lorenzo: You have her in custody?

Ric: She will be if she recovers. Right now, she's in critical condition at General Hospital. Nikolas Cassadine shot her after an alleged attempt on Emilyís life.

Lorenzo: Well, that makes sense. And I assume when Mary pulls through, that you'll be charging her with first-degree murder?

Ric: Well, I don't know what charges I'm going to be able to file until I know more about what happened.

Lorenzo: Sage is dead! What more do you need to know?

Ric: Well, whether premeditation is a factor, Mr. Alcazar, which I doubt. I don't think that Mary had the intent of killing your niece when she entered that freezer.

Lorenzo: Freezer?

Ric: Yeah. Um -- Sage was found in an unused walk-in in the basement. That's where Mary found her. I'm sorry.

Lorenzo: My niece was locked in a freezer at the mercy of a madwoman, and you are standing there navel-gazing about what charges to file?

Dillon: Hey.

Jason: What's going on?

Dillon: Uh -- first, I need to know if there's any sort of family discount. I'm kind of broke.

Jason: What kind of service are you looking to buy?

Dillon: Protection. We got into some trouble with Lorenzo Alcazar, and I think it may be life-threatening.

Jason: All right, just tell me what happened.

Brook Lynn: We agreed to lock his niece, Sage, in a freezer, and then somebody murdered her.

Ric: Get a hold of yourself --

Lorenzo: First my brother loses his life at the hands of a raving lunatic --

Ric: Get a hold of yourself!

Lorenzo: And now his daughter's going to meet the same fate?

Ric: It's all right, it's all right, it's all right.

Lorenzo: Different outcomes, though, Lansing. I promise you that. Alexis Davis got away with Luis' murder. Mary Bishop is not going to do the same with his daughter's. One way or the other, every person responsible for her death is going to pay.

Ric: Look, I understand you have suffered a terrible loss here, Mr. Alcazar. But swearing vengeance is not going to bring your niece back. Now, I will do whatever I can to make sure that justice prevails here, but Iím not going to lie to you -- if Mary Bishop did indeed suffer some sort of psychotic break and it can be proven that she did not know what she was doing and therefore she will get --

Lorenzo: Whoever locked her in that freezer knew what they were doing! Why don't you start by filing charges against them?

Ric: You need to calm down.

Lois: Lorenzo? There's something else I need to tell you.

Nikolas: I understand how he feels.

Alexis: I wouldn't waste your sympathy because Alcazar won't return the favor.

Nikolas: What does that mean?

Alexis: The way he thinks, you're the motive for everything Mary did. He's likely to blame you for Sage's death.

Emily: How can anyone think that what Nikolas did was wrong? I mean, Mary had already murdered two people, Lucky -- two kids! I mean, Sage died because Mary mistook her for me, and it easily could've been me, Lucky. There were plenty of times where I was alone and unprotected in that house, and if Mary had found me, I wouldn't be standing here right now! I mean, she'd already threatened -- no, promised -- to kill me, and Nikolas shot her in self-defense.

Lucky: No, no -- oh, no, he didnít. That was in defense of you.

Emily: What are you saying? That doesn't count?

Lucky: No, that is for the court to decide, all right? You need to leave and you need to stay away from Mary. Nothing good is going to come from you getting in her face, so just promise me, all right, you're just going to go home.

Emily: Sure, don't -- don't worry about it. Don't --

Jason: Well, you're right to be cautious when it comes to Alcazar. But I don't think he's going to come after you.

Brook Lynn: We couldn't blame him if he did, though. I mean, we all ganged up on her.

Dillon: Well, she was being pretty obnoxious.

Brook Lynn: We didn't have to lock her in a freezer, Dillon.

Dillon: It was a pretty horrifying night, and --

Jason: Sounds like it.

Dillon: But it's over, right? I mean, like, we're -- you know, we're safe now; the mob code doesn't apply here?

Jason: What? "Mob code" -- what's that?

Dillon: The -- you know, the mob -- the -- like, eye for an eye, vengeance is mine, the whole thing.

Jason: All right. If Alcazar comes after anybody, it's probably going to be Mary. Ok? But both of you should stay out of his way, and I already told you this before, Dillon. But just in case, I'll keep my eyes open.

Dillon: Whew.

Carly: Well, so much for being conceived in love. My father's probably one of these men in this book here, and if that is the case, then he's not going to be real thrilled that the bastard child that he fathered, a child he probably never knew existed, shows up at his door.

Sonny: You want to stop this?

Carly: I can't, Sonny. I need to know who my father is.

Sonny: Give Meyer the names. I'll have him run a trace, see if we can find a location, and then Iíll send somebody to take care of it.

Carly: I love you for wanting to help me with this. I really do. You can't take care of this one for me, though, Sonny. This is my journey and I have got to take care of it on my own. But I do need your support.

Sonny: Well, you got that. You know that. So what's the plan?

Carly: I'm going to take a shortcut to the truth.

Lois: So you see? Sage's being locked in the freezer was a teenage prank gone horribly wrong. The kids were playing with the channeling board, which can be terrifying in and of itself, and Sage was intentionally scaring them even more, so they put her on ice, so to speak. No malicious intent. It was a terrible accident, and the kids are devastated.

Lorenzo: I can imagine. Thanks for explaining and thanks for being the one to tell me about Sage.

Lois: I can help you with you know, the arrangements and --

Lorenzo: No. I'm going to handle things from here.

Lois: I don't like the way you're acting, Lorenzo.

Lorenzo: Well, I'm sure there's a better way to deal with this. But I can't think of what it is at the moment.

Lois: Look, I don't want to push. If you need to handle this alone, you have every right. Just know that I am only a phone call away and I'm praying for you.

Lorenzo: No. Pray for Sage. Pray that she rests in peace.

Alexis: Alcazar already blames the Cassadines because I killed his brother. You're the reason that his niece is dead. Trust me -- he's not your friend.

Lorenzo: I need to speak to Nikolas -- alone.

Emily: I've been searching my heart trying to find some sympathy for you, a little compassion. And I imagine that you weren't always like this. It must have been Connorís loss that took your sanity. I try to tell myself that you aren't responsible for your actions and find excuses for poor, pathetic Mary. And then I realize that that's the exact mistake I have made all along -- giving you the benefit of the doubt, looking for the deeper motive. My pity for you gave you the time you needed to keep Nikolas isolated and dependent on you, time for you to try to have his baby, time enough for you to feel entitled to him. You are no one to feel sorry for, Mary Bishop. You are a loathsome, cunning, dangerous woman, and I hate you with every fiber of my being. More than anything, I wish that bullet had found its mark. You don't deserve to live.

Sam: Hey. Hi. I wasn't expecting you.

Sonny: Do I need an appointment?

Sam: No.

Sonny: Oh.

Sam: No, of course not. Come in.

Sonny: Carly decided to look for her father, kind of --

Sam: Really?

Sonny: The urge just kind of grabbed her, you know, and -- I just -- it made me realize that I need to stay connected to my child. What are you doing?

Sam: I'm ordering books for Jason to read out loud to the baby. I want her to -- to know the sound of his voice, so --

Sonny: Well, see, that's what Iím talking about. I mean, I'm -- Iím the -- I'm the baby's father, you know? The baby should know my voice. That's why, you know, I'm going to try to spend as much time with you and help you through --

Sam: Sonny --

Sonny: This --

Sam: No.

Bobbie: Well, you said this couldn't wait, so here I am. Where did you get that?

Carly: When I found The Cellar, I found an old trunk of Ruby's stuff. I thought now was a good time to go through it. Somewhere -- come on, do you recognize any of the names?

Bobbie: Carly? This is a record of the worst time in my life. Why are you doing this? Why are you forcing my past back into my face?

Carly: This is not to hurt you, Mama. And I really wish that you would understand that I am asking for your help. I am asking you -- look here. There are three customers in here with the initials J.D. It's the same initials that you wrote about some guy in your diary, which I stole.

Bobbie: And I'm supposed to be ok with that? You have violated my privacy!

Carly: This is important, Mama. It is important. You have got to know which of these men is my father.

Bobbie: Oh, why stop with three? Why not track down all the others? Knock on the door of every faceless stranger who took his turn with me!

Carly: I don't care about all those other men -- I don't care. All I care about is the one man with my D.N.A. --

[Bobbie sighs]

Carly: With my knobby knees, with the same freckles that Morgan and Michael and I have. You know who it is, Mom. You do. I am more convinced of it than ever, and I am asking you, I'm asking you to tell me.

Bobbie: Carly -- honey, I have no idea who your father is.

Carly: I don't believe you. But if that is the way you want to play it --

Bobbie: Hey, wait a minute!

Carly: It's fine by me.

Bobbie: This -- this is not a game.

Carly: Listen to me -- the three J.D.'s in there -- it's a place to start. I will investigate and I will go from there.

Bobbie: Why are you doing this? Why? Trust was so hard to come by for the two of us. Why are you throwing it all away?

Carly: Mama, I would stop if I could, but this is about me finding myself. I'm sorry that this distresses you, I really am, but I am not going to stop. I'm not stopping till I find my father.

Sonny: Sam, you're not saying I can't spend time with my child, are you?

Sam: No, Sonny. Of course you can -- after she's born.

Sonny: Yeah, but I want to be as close to the baby as possible, you know, right from the start.

Sam: Right -- yeah, I understand that, but there's a problem. See, the problem is I come with the package. Our child is inside of me, Sonny, and it is not easy or comfortable for me to spend time with you. It hurts me. And I realize that you are -- you are too wrapped up in whatever Carlyís doing to see past her needs, but I happen to be in love with you and I don't want to sit on the couch while -- while you touch my stomach and talk to our child knowing that you're going to go across the hall to be with your family, and my guess is Carly is not going to be too thrilled about the idea, either.

Sonny: We're grownups.

[Sam sighs]

Sonny: We're going to have to learn to live with a certain amount of discomfort, but, I mean, as you know, it's important to me that this child know me as her father.

Sam: You. You see everything by how it relates to you and your need to be a father. What about -- what about what's best for our child, Sonny? What's going to make her happy? That is obviously -- look, that's obviously where I am putting my focus. I'm never, ever going to deny that you are this child's father, but I don't think there's any way you can be hands-on right now. It's just not possible.

Sonny: Well, I'm not going to let you push me out of my daughter's life.

Jason: What's going on?

Sonny: This is between me and Sam.

Brook Lynn: How'd it go with Mr. Alcazar?

Lois: He's devastated, as you'd expect.

Dillon: If you don't mind me saying, you don't look so great, either.

Lois: Such a tragedy -- Sage dying at such a young age and in such a horrible way. And Trent. Lorenzo is still raw over his brother's death and now he's trying to cope with this? It's not like us. He doesn't have this huge family to gather around and take up the slack.

Brook Lynn: You really care about him, don't you?

Lois: I feel for him. But he scares me, too. He went ballistic when he found out that Sage was locked in a freezer.

Dillon: Wait, wait a second. Do you -- do you think that he would come after us?

Lois: He didn't have much reaction when he found out, but earlier today, he swore vengeance on anybody who was involved. I did not walk away with a very good feeling.

Alexis: Ric --

Ric: Oh, let me guess -- I know what's coming. You're going to berate me for being hurtful and incompetent for charging Nikolas with Maryís shooting.

Alexis: You're just doing your job. I can't fault you for that.

Ric: Do my ears deceive? Where -- where did this sudden overture of friendship come from?

Alexis: Oh, I didn't say I was your friend.

Ric: Oh.

Alexis: It just doesn't follow that I would want you dead.

Ric: Well, we're making progress.

Alexis: I'm serious. Alcazar is not going to stop until someone pays for Sage's death.

Ric: Well, I didn't kill Sage. Mary did.

Alexis: In Alcazar's mind, he's going to expect you to get her the death penalty, and we both know that's not going to happen. She's going to be committed to Ferncliff, and you will be at the top of his hit list.

Ric: Is there any reason why that should bother you?

Nikolas: Mary's intention was to get rid of Emily so she could have a clear path to me or, more accurately, to Connor. That's what she called me. That's -- that's who she convinced herself I was.

Lorenzo: Then why did Mary kill Sage?

Nikolas: Mistaken identity. She thought Sage was Emily.

Lorenzo: So my niece died in Emilyís place?

Emily: You have caused nothing but misery for Nikolas and me. And now, you've taken the lives of two innocent people because of your twisted obsession. The world would be a better place without you in it, Mary, so why don't you just do us all a favor and die! Just die!

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Sonny: You're getting a little too close to my child.

Courtney: Glad you could make it.

Carly: I need you to find someone for me.

Mary: I missed my chance to kill you before. I won't now.

Nikolas: Sage was an innocent victim, and so is Emily, so stay away from her.
