Nikolas: Maybe we should just forget all this and elope.

Emily: No, not a chance.

Nikolas: Hmm.

[Knock on door]

Mac: Ahem.

Nikolas: Oh. Is there a problem?

Mac: I'm doing a little follow-up on the Mary Bishop homicide.

Nikolas: We've already given our statements.

Mac: Unfortunately, Emilyís statement is full of holes. I need to hear what happened that night directly from her.

Nikolas: She already told D.A. Lansing what happened. And everyone else's statement backs her up, including that of Lucky Spencer, an officer in your department.

Emily: Why are you asking? Have you found some new evidence?

Faith: Oh. I am going to take the ones you love and make it so you never, never see them again!

Ric: Looks like you dodged another bullet.

Sonny: Faith's guilty. You're the one who offered the plea bargain.

Ric: Yeah, but it worked out well for you, though, didn't it? Faith was threatening to testify against you about all the times you tried to kill her before, and now she's not going to get that chance, is she? Oh. Here he is, right on cue. Who wants to take a bet, huh? How long? How long you think it's going to take -- a week, a month? How much time does Faith have before she's conveniently found dead in her cell?

Coleman: Jason Morgan, Sonny's enforcer. He and Carly used to be real tight way back when but, man, if Corinthos had walked in here and caught you getting drunk with his wife --

Steven: Forget about Sonny Corinthos.

Coleman: Never a good idea, Steven.

Steven: Tell me everything you know about Carly.

Coleman: Well, I know she's married to a jealous guy with a short fuse and the ability to make people disappear.

Steven: Yeah, I get it -- the husband's dangerous. That doesn't tell me anything about Carly.

Coleman: Man, I know you don't mess with her, but even striking up a friendship to try to get dirt on her husband is just a real -- I mean, it's a quick and easy way to get yourself fitted with cement boots, you know?

Carly: Where is -- oh, ow! Would you watch where you're -- you.

John: Hello, Carly.

Carly: What are you doing in Port Charles?

John: I was about to ask you the same question.

Carly: Yeah, well, I live here, but you knew that.

John: No. No, actually, you never mentioned that. Anyway, I'm up here on business from New York. Wow. Small world.

Carly: Yeah, it's too small.

John: What, did -- excuse me? Did I strike a nerve? Why would my being in Port Charles have any effect on you whatsoever?

Mike: Hey, Sam. So, listen, hey, what's it going to be tonight? Pickles? Pie? Ice cream? Name your craving.

Sam: I'm not here for food. I really -- I need your advice on your son.

Mike: Well, I'm not sure I can be a whole lot of help.

Sam: Ok, just listen, then. Sonny -- he's getting really possessive, wanting to know every detail of what I'm up to, accusing me and Jason of leaving him out of the simplest decisions to do with the baby. Maybe -- just maybe it's my hormones or I'm getting paranoid, but it's like he's hovering over me like this constant shadow over my head. And you can tell me that it's just a phase, right? I'm getting worked up over nothing.

Mike: You want my honest opinion?

Sam: Yeah.

Mike: It's just the beginning.

Sonny: Faith ain't even in the prison van, and you're already trying to accuse me of killing her.

Ric: Well, it's a reasonable conclusion, isn't it? I mean, you've wanted Faith out of the way for a long time. Why would you let a small obstacle like prison get in the way?

Sonny: What are you talking about, Ric? If I wanted Faith dead, I would have killed her in that room in the tunnels under Wyndemere.

Ric: Oh.

Sonny: Cassadines would have found her body maybe 10, 15 years later, but you know what? I did the right thing. I called the authorities because I'm a law-abiding citizen.

Ric: Is that right?

Sonny: Right.

Ric: Oh, but it is a lot cleaner for you to have her meet with an accident, right?

Sonny: Well, I don't know. Maybe it's cleaner for you.

Ric: What?

Sonny: You know what I mean? Because it's kind of embarrassing that the D.A. slept with a convicted felon. But you know what? You've done a lot worse, right?

Alexis: Ric?

Sonny: A hell of a lot worse.

Alexis: Ric? Do you think I could have a word with you about the Mary Bishop case?

Sonny: Have fun.

[Sonny laughs]

Jason: How long are you going to wait?

Sonny: It's not going to happen. Faith agreed to a plea bargain on my word that she's going to stay safe in Pentonville.

Justus: I'm trusting you on this, right?

Sonny: You're trusting me on this? You made a serious mistake, Justus. Faith is not worth whatever you're giving up to save her.

Justus: So long as she stays alive.

Sonny: What are you going to do? Are you going to wait 10 years? You going to wait 10 years? Is that what you're going to do? You might as well go back to that monastery -- you know what I'm saying? -- And try to stay faithful. No pun intended.

Justus: I'm not going anywhere, Sonny. I'm staying right here.

 [Ric sighs]

Alexis: You made two good points.

Ric: Yeah, you would tend to think so.

Alexis: If he killed Faith Rosco, he would set himself up for a murder charge, and he might also eliminate a potentially embarrassing association from your past.

Ric: "Embarrassing"? Alexis, my half brother is a mob kingpin. As the district attorney, I don't think it gets any more embarrassing than that.

Alexis: Regrettably, I think that he won that round.

Ric: Yeah.

Alexis: I hope you have a Plan B.

Ric: Look, I'm not the only person who's trying to take my brother down. Somebody else could be waiting in the wings.

Carly: I'm -- I'm sorry. I just -- it took me off-guard to see you here.

John: You assume that I came to Port Charles because of you?

Carly: Well, I'm just -- I'm still a little embarrassed about the lies that I told you -- pretending to be the law student when I really wanted some information on you for my novel.

John: Well, if you hadn't spotted that gunman, I could be dead, right? So how is that novel?

Carly: It's in its outline stage still.

John: Huh. Take place here in Port Charles?

Carly: No, New York City. It's your territory.

John: Hmm. Actually, I travel all over the place. I would have assumed that you would have based it here. I mean, after all, Port Charles is a hotbed of smuggling and organized crime.

Carly: Yeah, but who said I wanted to cover those subjects, hmm?

John: Well, if you're basing your character on me, you don't have much choice.

Carly: Well, why? I mean, why couldn't you be interested -- or my character be interested -- in prosecuting kidnappers or serial killers?

John: Gangsters are more fun. They fight back, they intimidate, they blackmail. They exist to subvert justice. Prosecuting a gangster is a challenge; it's a -- it's a privilege.

Carly: And perhaps a bit of an obsession?

John: We all need a reason to get up in the morning. Anyway -- ooh -- I am very late for my appointment. We keep knocking into each other. I'm sure I'll see you again before I leave.

Steven: All Carly and I did was play a little pool; knock back a few drinks.

Coleman: She kicked your butt, got you drunk, took you somewhere to sober up, man.

Steven: Maybe she liked my company.

Coleman: Bad move.

Steven: You're so afraid of Sonny Corinthos.

Coleman: Dude, I'm telling you to be afraid. I saw the way you looked at Carly -- every inch of her. So if you're planning on, you know, getting her in the sack or, you know, weaseling in on Sonny's turf, either way, it's suicide.

Steven: Yeah, I'm a doctor. Ok, the hospital is my turf. I'm only interested in Carly as a friend.

Coleman: Oh, yeah?

Steven: Mm-hmm.

Coleman: That was -- that was convincing. I tell you what -- doctors -- I mean, you guys are good at research, right?

Steven: Yeah. What's your point?

Coleman: Look up a guy named Lorenzo Alcazar. He's the last guy that was interested in Carly. Read up on what happened to him.

Steven: Yeah, I've heard the name. What, he's some kind of gangster, right?

Coleman: Yeah, well, he's a heavy hitter --

Steven: Mm-hmm.

Coleman: And he still wound up in the hospital, shot by Sonny himself, man.

Steven: Hmm.

Coleman: So is my message getting through, doctor?

Steven: It's tough to miss.

Coleman: Yeah. Info has a price tag around here, Steve, especially when it can save your life, man.

Steven: Yeah, right on. I got you. Here. This is what a coward's info is worth.

Mac: Why did you initially refuse to answer questions about Mary Bishop's death?

Emily: Jason didn't want me to.

Mac: What was his reason?

Nikolas: He's paranoid, that's why. I'm sorry, Emily, I know you love him, but let's be honest here. Jason's an alleged criminal, been arrested dozens of times; doesn't answer any questions. Am I right?

Mac: "I don't want to answer anything without my lawyer" is about it.

Nikolas: Look, Emily is Jasonís little sister and he adores her, but I don't agree with his methods of protecting her. He told her -- he told her to follow his example, to stay silent, even though she had done nothing wrong.

Mac: I'd like to hear from Emily.

Emily: It happened exactly the way -- the way Nikolas said. Jason came into the room; he asked me not to answer. And he's my brother, I respect him, so that's what I did.

Mac: But after you gave a statement to Ric Lansing?

Nikolas: I convinced Emily to cooperate.

Mac: With some help from Lucky and Elizabeth, right?

Emily: They encouraged me to make a statement, yes.

Mac: After the four of you came up with a cover story?

Nikolas: No. No, Mac, that's not -- no.

Mac: Whoever killed Mary Bishop had medical knowledge to alter the meds. Elizabeth is a nurse, and you are premed.

Nikolas: So -- so what? There's -- there's tons of nurses and doctors in the hospital.

Mac: None of whom had motive.

Nikolas: Well, they could have been paid to change the meds. Why jump to the conclusion that it was Emily?

Mac: I'm not jumping to anything, Nikolas. I'm trying to find another suspect -- someone capable of killing Mary and covering their tracks.

[Helena laughs]

Tracy: I'm partial to white flowers.

Helena: Oh, white lilies would be my pick.

Tracy: Always an elegant choice.

Helena: Yes, and classic in keeping with the tone we're trying to set.

Nikolas: I must be hallucinating here.

Emily: What are you up to now?

Helena: Oh, my darlings, in honor of your betrothal, Tracy and I have decided to end the hostilities between our families and join together in helping you plan the perfect wedding.

Ric: You know, Sonny's going to wind up dead or in prison someday. I mean, you'd only last inevitably and it's because it's the law of averages. He deserves what he gets, but I just -- I can't help but thinking that it's -- what it's going to do to his kids.

Alexis: If Sonny's ever brought to justice, then the kids will have to be protected.

Ric: I know that. There's nothing more precious than a child.

Alexis: Being a parent changes your perspective on pretty much every level.

Ric: Hmm. You know, I haven't led the most exemplary life, but I'd like to think that if the child that Elizabeth and I almost had had survived, then, I don't know, maybe I would have been a good father.

Alexis: I'm sure that you would have.

Ric: Yeah, who knows? Maybe I'll get that chance sometime.

[Knock on door]

Felicia: Excuse me. I'm sorry. I'm looking for Mac. Have you seen him?

Ric: He's not here. Can I help you?

Felicia: It's business. It's a case he asked me to look into.

Ric: Well, I am the district attorney, so any information will eventually come to me. So, is there something I can do?

Felicia: I've found a nurse at General Hospital who knows something about the murder of Mary Bishop. She's just outside.

Ric: Look, in light of the fact that you are representing Nikolas, maybe you should sit this one out.

Alexis: Well, if it's pertinent to the case, then I should probably --

Ric: Well, I'll let you know as soon as I do, ok?

Felicia: Donna Harris, this is D.A. Lansing.

Ric: How do you do?

Donna: Hi.

Ric: I understand that you might know something about the night Mary Bishop died?

Donna: Well, it's not what I know. It's what I saw.

Helena: Nikolas was defending himself against a madwoman. Now, I certainly hope that the Port Charles police department has the good sense to have dropped the charges.

[Phone rings]

Mac: Commissioner Scorpio. Yeah. Excuse me. What do you got?

Nikolas: What's going on?

Helena: A wedding, I hope.

Nikolas: Oh. Right. Last time I saw you, you were opposed to Emily and our wedding.

Emily: And you were against anyone being happy, period.

Tracy: Helena and I have had a change of heart.

Helena: Yes.

Nikolas: Really? Oh, really? So when did you experience this joint epiphany?

Helena: Oh, we struck up a conversation and realized how much we have in common.

Tracy: We're both from powerful, wealthy families.

Helena: With a great deal of influence in the community.

Tracy: And we realized the two of you must really be in love to have surmounted all of the obstacles in front of you.

Helena: So we thought, why not let bygones be bygones?

Emily: Did we just slip into a parallel universe?

Nikolas: I think so.

Tracy: We have some wonderful ideas for the wedding.

Helena: Yes, now, the wedding can be right out here in the garden.

Tracy: How about at sunset?

Helena: Oh, perfect! The light is lovely at that time of day.

Tracy: And we can have the reception at the Quartermaine mansion.

Helena: Oh, a celebration of joy --

Tracy: And healing.

Nikolas: Absolutely not.

Helena: Oh, Nikolas, now think --

Nikolas: You won't be attending our wedding, much less planning it.

Emily: We're making all the decisions on our own.

[Helena sighs]

Mac: Ok, sure. Well, there's been a break in the Mary Bishop homicide. I'm afraid you're going to have to come downtown.

Mike: Sonny has always been a little over the top when it comes to his kids.

Sam: Yeah, I know. I saw that firsthand during the custody battle with Carly.

Mike: Look, I abandoned Sonny and his mother, and it shames me to admit it. But Sonny still carries that pain deep inside, and that is why he overcompensates with his own kids. He's possessive. He wants to make sure that no one ever hurts them, so in Sonny's mind; he has to be a constant presence in his children's lives as more than a father. He has to protect them.

Sam: Yeah, but the problem is he feels that he has to protect her from me. Me. Me and Jason? Come on.

Mike: All right, all right, I think that maybe Sonny's ashamed about the way he treated you, and, therefore, that since he won't deal with it, it makes him act badly.

Sam: Ok, so, what am I supposed to do, Mike? Fight back? Won't that make everything worse? I'm --

Mike: Just be honest with Sonny. Reassure him that you want what is best for that baby, just like he does. And make it clear that he will always have a place in her life as her father.

Carly: Hey. Are you ok?

Sonny: Yeah, yeah. Why shouldn't I be?

Carly: It's no reason. I just -- I guess I'm just worried about Faith, that's all.

Sonny: Actually, Faith agreed to a plea bargain. She's going to prison.

Carly: Ok, but it doesn't mean you can take your safety for granted, Sonny. You know what? We've just got our family back together and things are going well. We can't take a chance on losing that.

[Phone rings]

Sonny: Hello. Yeah, I'll be right there. Do me a favor --

Jason: Huh?

Sonny: Take Carly home. I got to take care of something.

Jason: Sure.

Sonny: All right, I'll see you.

Carly: Ok.

Jason: What happened?

Carly: I don't know what you mean.

Jason: Well, you're worried about Sonny. Carly, is there someone after him that we should know about?

Emily: Alexis, why do they need me to come in?

Alexis: Someone stepped forward with new evidence.

Nikolas: What sort of evidence?

Alexis: As your attorney, I was excluded from the interview due to a conflict of interest.

Nikolas: All right. What's going on, Ric?

Ric: Well, apparently, Commissioner Scorpio here went to an outside source to investigate Mary Bishop's murder. That source has found a nurse who can positively I.D. the person who gave Mary the medication that killed her.

Lucky: That's impossible.

Ric: Really?

Lucky: Elizabeth and I were there and we saw no one.

Ric: Well, she saw you there at the time, Lucky. She also said that she saw exactly what you did. Now, if that's true, it appears you're covering up the murder.

Sonny: What was so important you couldn't say it over the phone?

Coleman: Well, I could, but I figured it's easier to negotiate sensitive matters --

Sonny: You know what? There's no need to -- you either tell me now, or -- you know what? You'll be negotiating your next breath.

Coleman: Take it easy.

Sonny: No, I'm not going to take it easy because I'm -- you know what? I don't have the patience right now.

Coleman: Somebody's been sniffing around your wife, Sonny, asking a whole lot of questions.

Jason: If someone's after Sonny, Carly, I need to know.

Carly: Everyone's after Sonny. That's the point. Someone had an agent dress up as a maid and come to our hotel room in New York and bug it, and Sonny said it was a one-time thing, but --

Jason: Ok, the feds probably assumed that Sonny was in town for a meeting, they planted the bug to find out when and where, but nothing happened, Carly. Sonny's fine, he's home.

Carly: So there's no chance that they could have followed us here?

Jason: There's always that chance. Just tell me what's going on.

Carly: I'm just worried, Jason. I don't know, you can call it paranoia or free-floating anxiety. I don't know. I just have this feeling that no matter how cautious we all are that one day somebody is going to break past Sonny's defenses and they're just going to destroy our whole family.

John: I spoke to Lansing. The forensics job is yours.

Steven: He told me. Thanks.

John: Have you found anything else about Carly Corinthos? Have you made contact yet?

Steven: Yeah. Believe it or not, we spent a couple of hours shooting pool.

John: And?

Steven: She's smart and she's capable, absolutely charming. She has a killer game of pool.

John: Hmm. Well, there's one gene we don't share. Anything else? How we're related?

Steven: Well, she was adopted and she grew up in Florida. She came to Port Charles as an adult to try and find her birth mother.

John: Hmm. Anything else?

Steven: She's loyal to Corinthos. She has no liking for cops. When she found out I was working with the PCPD, she shut down. She told me never to approach her again.

John: Well, find a way to change her mind. I need to know everything there is about Mrs. Corinthos, especially how we're related. If it turns out that she is my daughter, then I will use that information to nail Sonny Corinthos to a prison wall.

Steven: You're willing to use the woman who could be your own daughter?

John: Whatever works.

Steven: Carly could have some other reason for seeking you out.

John: Not likely. Carly goes looking after her father, finds out that I'm her husband's worst nightmare, she backs off. All I need is proof that she's my daughter. That's up to you. I'll take care of the rest.

Ric: You stated that you didn't see anyone leaving Mary Bishop's room the night that she died. Now, either your powers of perception are surprisingly poor, or there's something you're leaving out.

Lucky: Everything I said is in my statement.

Ric: Ok, well, as long as you understand withholding information could cost you your badge, Lucky. Mac, I assume that you went outside the PCPD and you asked Felicia to investigate because you suspected that Lucky here was covering for Nikolas and Emily. She found proof. I want Officer Spencer suspended without pay, pending an investigation by I.A.

Emily: But you can't do that, Ric.

Ric: I cannot do what, uncover the truth?

Alexis: She rose to the defense of a friend. That's a perfectly natural impulse.

Ric: Ah, yes, it is, of course. Is that all it was?

Emily: Yes.

Ric: Ok, I may want to file charges of obstruction of justice against Officer Spencer here. You may want to stick around. You can talk to Ms. Davis here about representation. Maybe she can put together a package deal.

Alexis: Are you finished?

Ric: Not quite. I'm going to talk to Nurse Harris in here. She's going to look through the photos and I.D. The person who actually gave Mary those pills.

Emily: Lucky, I'm so sorry.

Lucky: No, don't be. Ok, you know what? I couldn't do it any other way.

Emily: You could lose your job or worse. Maybe I should come forward.

Nikolas: No, no. I think we should wait. It might be a trick.

Lucky: Yeah.

Alexis: Emily, have you talked to your attorney?

Emily: I left messages for Justus, but he hasn't called me back. Maybe I should call Jason and --

Alexis: Oh, do me a favor -- don't get your brother into this. He'll just make it worse.

Nikolas: Look, Emily needs a lawyer now. Can you represent her, at least in the short term?

Alexis: I'll do the best that I can, but I need to know what I'm dealing with. Did you take the medication to Mary?

Emily: Yes, but I swear I didn't tamper with it.

Nikolas: Well, with any luck, the nurse won't I.D. Emily.

Lucky: If the nurse is the killer, she could I.D. Emily to frame her.

Jason: Carly, how can I help you if you won't tell me what's got you worried?

Carly: It's nothing, Jason. It's a temporary panic attack, that's all. I've got a lot to lose, and I don't want to.

Jason: All right, if you say so. Let me take you home.

Carly: No, I want to just stay here for a while and think.

Jason: Ok, don't do anything crazy.

Carly: Why would you say that, Jason?

Jason: Why? Because I can see how you're acting, and I know how you get when you get scared. You start imagining these wild scenarios and convincing yourself you got to take action, which usually makes things worse.

Carly: Do I look like I am imagining wild scenarios right now?

Jason: Yes. And that's why I'm asking you to come to me if something's wrong and give me a chance to fix it while there's still time.

Steven: Evening. I would offer my assistance, but you're Mrs. Sonny Corinthos, and I'm working with the PCPD, which, according to you, makes me the enemy.

Carly: Well, either walk on by or hand me my lipstick, ok?

Steven: Betalucci. Expensive taste.

Carly: What, are you an expert on handbags now?

Steven: I worked in forensics, and that makes me an expert in everything from toxins to bullets to clothing fibers -- and even cosmetics like the lovely shade of lipstick that you're wearing.

Carly: Oh, my God, that's a pathetic attempt at a compliment. You know, you might as well get something --

Steven: I'm stating a fact.

Carly: Ok, well, let me state a fact for you, as well. I don't want anything to do with you. Ow -- ah! God!

Steven: Oh -- Carly -- here. Sit up.

Carly: I am --

Steven: Carly, sit up.

Sonny: Did you get Carly home ok?

Jason: She's still down on the pier. She said she needed some time alone.

Sonny: You figure out why she's all keyed up?

Jason: I don't know. She claims that, you know, because the feds planted a bug in your hotel room in the city, but --

Sonny: Sounds reasonable.

Jason: Yeah, maybe. Maybe that's part of it, but I just think something else is going on.

Sonny: Her father?

Jason: What about him?

Sonny: Well, I mean, you know, she's still dealing with the fact that he exists. I mean, why doesn't she just go to him, contact him, and say, "Hey, you know, I'm your daughter"?

Jason: Yeah, she told me that she was just going to just let it go.

Sonny: Well, I mean, look, you know, a lot of people go on diets, doesn't mean it's easy, especially when it's right within your grasp. You know, you fight every day to try to get it. That's what's happening with Carly right now. She's wanted to know her father her whole life, and she's now getting a chance to do that.

Man: Mr. Corinthos?

Sonny: Oh -- hey. Thanks for bringing this by. Ken Holliman is my -- is an attorney. This is Jason Morgan.

Jason: How you doing?

Sonny: He is my business partner.

Ken: I'm familiar with the name.

Sonny: Right.

Ken: It's all drawn up exactly as you instructed.

Sonny: You got it all done? Ok, I'm going to go ahead and have this signed, send it back to you, then you can go ahead and file it.

Ken: Right.

Sonny: Hey, appreciate that a lot. Ok, you go ahead and take that to Sam, have her sign it.

Jason: What is it?

Sonny: It's a document stating that I'm the father of the baby. It guarantees Sam child support. It gives me shared custody and full visitation.

Jason: Do you have to do this right now?

Sonny: Why -- you know -- I mean, I like to have it in writing. I mean, I don't want any misunderstandings.

Jason: I'm just saying if you ask Sam to sign this right now, she's going to think you're trying to take the baby before she's even born.

Steven: Does that hurt?

Carly: Yeah, only when you touch it.

Steven: Ok, try to squeeze my hand.

Carly: It -- I'm fine, ok? I'm fine.

Steven: Yeah, and that's why it's swelling up.

[Carly sighs]

Steven: Move your fingers.

Carly: Wow, you're doing really good, aren't you? Already have a job at General Hospital as a doctor and moonlighting in Forensics at the PCPD. Wow, that's pretty good, you know, for a guy who can't play pool or hold his liquor. Unless that was a ruse to get me to talk.

Steven: Hey, you're the one that found me at Jakeís, remember?

Carly: Yeah, and it took you about, what, 30 seconds to ask me to play a game of pool?

Steven: We struck up a conversation; I enjoyed your company. Is that a crime?

Carly: My husband might think so.

Steven: Well, then maybe you shouldn't be hanging out in bars hustling pool games with guys you hardly know.

Carly: You know what? My car broke down. It had a flat, they were fixing it, and I thought you might be a mildly entertaining way to pass the time. You also didn't tell me you were a cop.

Steven: And you didn't tell me you were married to the mob. It seems to me like you're the one that should come with a warning label.

Carly: Ok, you're finished here, doctor? I think that I should get going.

Steven: You -- you got to go to the hospital. You should get an x-ray.

Carly: Oh. Maybe I will, actually. I can go over to the hospital and see if you are who you claim to be.

Sonny: Sam and I -- we had a good conversation this afternoon.

Jason: I know; she told me. She also told me that you agreed to just, you know, back off and give her a little space.

Sonny: Well, that's why I've drawn up the papers so that way, you know, I can protect my rights here.

Jason: Sonny, it's bad timing. I'm just saying give her a little more time. She's still adjusting with what's going on here. Sam sees that you have a family that she is never going to be a part of. That's tough enough to deal with without having to sign some contracts over a baby.

Sonny: All I want is my rights guaranteed as the father, Jason. I don't see why that's such a big deal. I really donít.

Jason: I'm just saying that you're going to provoke her, and you're asking for a fight.

Sonny: No -- the last thing I want is a fight -- look, there's nothing in there that's not reasonable or fair. Just get Sam to sign it and then bring it back to me.

Nikolas: You remember seeing anyone else outside the I.C.U. room other than Emily?

Lucky: No.

Alexis: Then where are these alleged witnesses?

Emily: Hiding somewhere?

Lucky: Listen, the only other person that could've been in the room was the killer.

Felicia: Nurse Harris has been on leave of absence taking care of her family since the night that Mary died.

Mac: That's quite a coincidence.

Felicia: It could be a legitimate one. Her brother-in-law was killed in a car accident. He had no life insurance, and Nurse Harris' sister had three little children.

Mac: How long had this nurse been working at General Hospital?

Felicia: 10 years. She keeps to herself. She has a clean record.

Mac: And how did she happen to be watching Mary Bishop's room?

Felicia: She was sneaking a smoke on the stairwell in the hallway. The door was cracked. She said that she saw a young woman with long brown hair steal a cup of medicine from the cart and go into Mary Bishop's room.

Donna: She wasn't in a nurse's uniform, which struck me as odd. I assumed that she was a friend. I didn't think anything more of it until I read about the patient's murder in the paper.

Ric: Mm-hmm. And you're sure you can identify this woman?

Donna: Yeah. She passed right by the stairway door.

Ric: Is she one of the women in these photos?

Emily: If that nurse I.D.'s me, it proves that I lied in my statement and Elizabeth and Lucky lied to cover for me.

Lucky: Hey, you know what? Don't worry. Just because I've been suspended doesn't mean I can't keep looking into it.

Ric: Thank you very much for your help.

Donna: You're welcome.

Alexis: Well?

Ric: She made a positive I.D. The person that Nurse Harris saw go into Mary Bishop's room with the medicine that killed her is Emily. I'm afraid I'm going to have to place you under arrest.

Nikolas: No. No.

Alexis: The Quartermaines and I will have her out on bail faster than you can get her in lockup. Don't waste your time.

Ric: All right, I'll release you on your own recognizance, but please don't leave town. It goes for all of you.

Felicia: Emily, I'm sorry. I didn't realize it would come to this.

Emily: Yeah. I guess we should forget our wedding plans.

Nikolas: No, no, no -- hey, come here. Listen to me. All right, I promised that I would marry you, and nothing's going to stop me from doing that. Ok?

Emily: Ok.

Helena: Oh, it's -- it's all there.

Donna: Thank you. This will be so helpful to my sister and her children.

Helena: Just stick with the story that we gave you. You saw Emily Quartermaine go into Mary Bishop's hospital room with the medication.

Tracy: You'll be asked to testify in court, for which you will be paid an additional fee.

Donna: Oh, I'll be convincing.

Helena: Oh, yes. Yes, we expect you to be. Just remember, it is essential that Emily Quartermaine is convicted and sent to prison for the murder of Mary Bishop.

Officer: So, how did you like casa de hellhole so far?

Faith: Strip search was fun. We'll have to do it again sometime.

Officer: Oh, you got a smart mouth, but I'd be careful how you flap it. Youíre in with a real tough cookie.

[Matron chuckles]

Officer: Nightie-night.

Skye: Whoa. Can't a person get any sleep around here?

John: Thank you. Carly Corinthos, maiden name is Caroline Benson. I want you to find out everything you can about her, including her childhood in Florida. I'll be in touch.

Sam: Ooh --

John: Sorry.

Jason: Sam?

Sam: There you are. Hey, what do you think? Too fussy, huh?

Jason: No, it's nice. It's nice.

Sam: I was feeling kind of down, so I decided to cheer myself up and get into the baby mode.

Jason: All right, Sam, I have --

Sam: I know I did go a little bit overboard, but I figured, what the heck? You know, I couldn't resist.

Jason: Hey, hey, hey, hey -- Sonny asked me to give this to you.

Sam: What is it?

Jason: It's -- you know, read it.

Sam: I was afraid this was going to happen. Sonny basically wants control of the baby. Forget it, Jason. There's no way I'm signing away my rights to my daughter.

Steven: Ok, so this is really easy. It's rice -- R-I-C-E -- "rest, ice, compression, elevation." You do that for about 48 hours, and then what you can do is start warm soaks.

Carly: Ok and how long is it going to take for me to heal?

Steven: Depends on how much you rest. Come in next week --

Carly: You don't get this. We cannot -- ah -- be friends.

Steven: Does that mean a pool rematch is out of the question?

Carly: Listen to me.  As long as you work for the PCPD, part of your job is going to be to go after my husband. So an enemy of Sonny is an enemy of mine.

Steven: So, that's it, just like that? I mean black and white? There's no gray?

Carly: No. None.

Steven: I think you're making a mistake. I mean, I have a good job here, and I don't plan to antagonize anybody, including your husband. I'm no threat to you at all.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Faith: I made sure we wound up together.

Jax: I'm looking for a woman.

Courtney: I'm using this convent to avoid a man.

Nikolas: We're going to take action right now. Let's plan a wedding!

Jason: There's no harm in putting it down on paper.

Sonny: How come you're asking questions about my wife?
