Helena: Well, Nikolas, you're acting very strangely. Has something happened to Emily? I warned you that if you continued --
Nikolas: No, no, no, see, I warned you. You'll leave here in a body bag if you don't tell me how to save her.
Helena: I've told you repeatedly, the way to save Emily is to let her go.
Nikolas: Well, see, now, we're going to have a little bit of a problem because that's not going to happen.
Helena: Nikolas, you don't want to hurt me.
Nikolas: Tell me. How do I stop what you're doing to her? Tell me right now. I'm not messing --
[Pounding on door]
Alexis: Nikolas, what is going on in there?
Helena: You're the one who is killing Emily now. If you love her the way you say you do, you leave her.
Nikolas: You're not --
Helena: Nikolas, it's the only thing that will save her.
Nikolas: Telling me what I want to hear.
Nikolas: Tell me how to save her or Iíll make sure you never speak again. Come on.
Elizabeth: Emily? Hey, Em, Em, Em, wake up, honey, wake up.
Elizabeth: Oh, my God. What's happening?
Nikolas: Last chance.
Helena: Aphrodite. Her garden.
Nikolas: What does it mean?
Luke: Yes! Yes, yes! That is a fabulous outfit!
Woman: Are you trying to be a wise guy?
Luke: Wise guy? No, I'm simply trying to compliment your sense of fashion, madam. It isn't everyone who can assemble an ensemble of such eye-popping variety out of, what, smelly old rags. I'll take it.
Woman: Take it where?
Luke: To a stunning redhead who'll do it justice and who will appreciate your avant-garde sense of fashion. Hmm. How's 10 bucks sound?
Lorenzo: I had nothing to do with that explosion.
Sonny: I believe you.
Lorenzo: That's it? You're not going to do anything?
Sonny: It's already done.
Ofc. Serino: Lorenzo Alcazar? You're wanted downtown for questioning.
Lorenzo: What am I being questioned about?
Ofc. Serino: That's for D.A. Lansing to say.
Lorenzo: I don't suppose you have a warrant?
Ofc. Serino: Didn't think I needed one, but I can get it.
Lorenzo: Let's get this over with.
Sam: Sonny. I'm glad I found you.
Sonny: What's wrong? Is it the baby?
Sam: No, no, no, no, the baby's fine, but I think Jason is in trouble.
Carly: You don't -- you don't know how many times Iíve fantasized about this, about my father holding me. It's like fate is playing a cruel joke on me or something.
John: Why would you say that, Carly?
Carly: Because I can't be in your life, no matter how much I may want to. We cannot have a relationship. I cannot see you anymore.
Luke: You are one tough negotiator, cookie!
Woman: You got that right. And I'm smart enough to realize that I may have these smelly old rags, but you sure seem to want them.
Luke: All right, 50 bucks! Try to remember the last time you saw that kind of scratch.
Woman: It don't matter. Supply and demand.
Luke: You are squeezing my patience, woman.
Woman: Well, then go buy the clothes off somebody else's back.
Luke: I'm sorry. I apologize. I've had a rough decade. All right, here, look -- 73 clams. That's all I got in the world. So if you don't want the 73, we're both going to have to just move on.
Woman: Say I make this deal. What am I supposed to do, walk around in my birthday suit?
Luke: No, no, no, no, of course not, madam. I got you covered, from neck to ankles. And may I offer an unsolicited, masculine opinion and tell you that you've got a lovely pair?
Woman: Ooh. Well, then you got yourself a deal.
Woman: Come on, big boy. Help me with my buttons.
Luke: Um --
Emily: I fell asleep, and all of a sudden, it felt like someone was choking me.
Elizabeth: Like in a dream or for real?
Emily: Both, I guess. I mean, it was happening in my sleep, but it was so visceral. I mean, I couldn't breath, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: I know. I walked in and you were gasping for air and choking, and you really scared me.
Emily: Ok, let's just get this out in the open. Do you think Iím nuts?
Elizabeth: I might if anyone else in the world had placed that curse. But you know that Helena put a curse on Luke and Laura, and you know how that turned out.
Elizabeth: I'm sorry, that was -- that was insensitive.
Emily: No, no, I really don't want to believe that Helena can exert that kind of power. I mean, there has to be a logical explanation, right, like with anything else -- except that I've been sick.
Elizabeth: Ok, well, maybe you're just still recovering from that spider bite.
Emily: Well, according to the doctors, what Iím feeling isn't physical. I mean, they've run every conceivable test and there's no medical explanation for what's happening, but I keep getting worse. Where's the logic in that?
Elizabeth: So maybe it's just mind over matter.
Emily: That's what your brother thinks.
Elizabeth: Well, you should listen to Steven because he really knows what he's talking about.
Emily: I'm afraid, Elizabeth. I mean, Nikolas is more furious than Iíve ever seen him.
Elizabeth: Oh, come on, that's understandable.
Emily: He went after Helena, and I'm afraid of what might happen. Maybe going up against this woman is a bad idea.
Elizabeth: So what are you saying, Em?
Emily: Maybe we should just give this witch what she wants and forget about getting married.
Elizabeth: No. No, Em, you can't give up. You have got to fight Helena with everything you've got.
Ric: Nikolas, get your hand off.
Alexis: Nikolas, let her go. She's not worth it.
Ric: Look, you're not giving me any choice but to have to arrest you.
Helena: I -- I believe that -- that would be my choice. This is a family matter. I have no intention of pressing charges against my -- my beautiful grandson. I would like a moment alone with Nikolas.
Alexis: That is a very, very bad idea.
Nikolas: You can leave us.
Alexis: Are you sure?
Nikolas: I'm not going to kill her, if that's what you're worried about.
Ric: All right, come on.
Nikolas: I only want to hear one thing from you.
Helena: I'm telling you what you need to know. Whatever you think you've learned about breaking the curse, I assure you that that's only wishful thinking. If you pursue this, there will be only one outcome. Your precious Emily will die.
Lorenzo: Why am I here, Lansing? One of Corinthos' warehouses blows up; you automatically assume Iím responsible?
Ric: Well, actually, I haven't checked into that yet. No, actually, you're here on -- oh -- drug trafficking.
Sam: Jason said he would be back hours ago.
Sonny: It's nothing for you to worry about.
Sam: But I am worried. Sonny, do you know the building is under surveillance?
Sonny: It usually is. So what?
Sam: But not by the PCPD. These guys are feds. I can spot one a mile away. Wherever you sent Jason, I'm sure he was followed.
Sonny: Jason knows how to spot a tail.
Sam: Ok, so maybe he can drop it this time, but what about the time after that or the time after that?
Sonny: Sam, Sam -- whew! -- Wait, wait, wait, just --
Sam: No --
Sonny: You need to just to relax.
Sam: Sonny, guys like Durant are relentless. Taking down an organization like yours is the reason they breathe. And what happens? Jason ends up compromised because you can't tell your wife to stay away from her federal prosecuting father?
Sonny: Ok, ok, listen to me! This may put your mind at ease a little bit. I already had this discussion with Carly, and she's agreed that it's a risk to see her father and she's going to stay away from him for now.
Sam: You think it's going to be that simple?
Sonny: Well --
Sam: Huh? My father was a deadbeat and a con who didn't have any use for me unless I was helping him run a scam, but it didn't mean that I wasn't desperate for his love. You're underestimating the connection between a daughter and a father if you think Carlyís going to be able to walk away from this and never look back, never wonder, never wish. Sonny, you need to end this, because if you let it slide and something happens to you or your family or to Jason, it's going to be on you.
John: I really had high hopes for us.
Carly: So did I. But not at the expense of my husband.
John: I promised you I wouldn't go after Sonny. Maybe you didn't understand, but you mean so much more to me than just another win.
Carly: Maybe you mean that.
John: I do.
Carly: Oh, God, I hope you do. I really do. But I'm trying to avoid the day that you have to go back on your word and the day that you declare war on Sonny and I end up in the middle. I can't do that again. I've been there before and almost lost everything. So as much as it pains me right now, goodbye. It was really amazing to meet you.
John: Carly, wait.
Carly: No, no.
John: Carly, wait!
Lorenzo: I've never seen that bag before. I have no idea what's in it or where it came from.
Ric: Gee, where have I heard that before?
Lorenzo: Dragging me in here on drug charges is bogus, and you know it.
Ric: Whoever turned you on to this was jerking your chain. Don't make it so easy next time. It's baking soda, you idiot. Get out of here. Well, obviously, somebody's trying to set you up.
Lorenzo: "Gee, where have I heard that before?" Oh, yeah, it was about a minute ago.
Ric: Why don't you just give me a name? I'll make sure it won't happen.
Lorenzo: Am I free to go?
Ric: Yeah, get out of here. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Nikolas: I have your book.
Nikolas: That's right, the book of curses.
Helena: Won't help you.
Nikolas: Well, no, not since you tore out the pages that would've told me how to undo whatever it is you did to Emily. But it's in your head, I know it, and I want it. You said two words -- "Aphrodite" and "Garden." What do they mean?
Helena: Are you being deliberately obtuse? I'm trying to warn you. Even if you could break the curse, remember what happened to Alexis' mother.
Nikolas: Are you threatening to kill Emily?
Helena: I'm merely pointing out that we learn from history or we're doomed to repeat it.
Ric: I think this might be a good time to get Nikolas out of there.
Alexis: That's a good idea. He's about two seconds away from choking her again.
Ofc. Serino: Skye Quartermaine just escaped the prison van.
Skye: Ugh, stop it!
Luke: Will you take it easy? Transforming you into Eliza Doolittle is no easy matter. But we're getting closer. We're getting a lot closer. Yeah.
Skye: Oh, oh. Oh, God, I can't tell you how much I hate being dirty.
Luke: Oh, well, dirt's good for the soul. It provides perspective.
Skye: Yeah, it's too bad you lost your perspective when you gave all that money to that crazy woman for these disgusting rags.
Luke: These disgusting rags, don't forget, have transformed you from prison orange -- "Hello, I'm a convict!" -- Into a credible disguise. A couple crumbs of gratitude thrown my way wouldn't be inappropriate.
Skye: I'm not sure I should be grateful to you about anything.
Luke: Then Iíll have to try harder. All right, Iím going to go check out the food and shelter situation. You keep a low profile.
Skye: No, no, no, wait, wait! You don't get away that easily. I need to yell at you and you need to listen. Where the hell have you been? You don't call, you don't write! Oh, no, excuse me, you do write, but only to get me convicted of a murder that I didn't commit! Thanks for that, by the way. In large part, due to that letter, I was convicted of murder and sent to prison, where I had to endure Faith Rosco as a cellmate and ward off her sexual advances!
Luke: Faith came on to you?
Skye: Oh, don't you even begin to enjoy that, not even for a second, do you hear me? I then escape from prison, I go into hiding, I get caught, I get hauled back to prison, all because of you! Or so it appears. Luke, I need to know, did you write that letter?
Jason: So I get into Durantís hotel room again. I went through his stuff. There's still nothing to prove that he's building a case against you.
Sonny: Well, he's got to know we're watching him.
Sonny: He's not going to leave anything incriminating lying around.
Jason: No, no. He came back early, I got stuck in his room, and then Carly came to see him.
Sonny: I told her not to go anywhere near Durant.
Jason: Sonny, trust me, I was upset, too. I was upset when she showed up. But she was there to end it. I couldn't believe it. I heard everything that she'd said. She admitted that she still wanted her father in her life, but you and the boys come first. And I -- I believe that she meant it.
Sonny: You believe her? Well, how she handles telling me or not will say a lot.
Emily: Oh, hey. Thank God. I thought I was going to get a call to bail you out of jail.
Nikolas: Helena didn't press charges.
Emily: I'm afraid to ask.
Emily: What did you do to her?
Nikolas: All that matters is it worked.
Emily: So she told you how to reverse the curse?
Nikolas: No, not exactly. But she gave me two words -- sit down -- "Aphrodite" and "Garden."
Nikolas: I don't know yet. You didn't happen to come across any reference to Aphrodite in this book, did you?
Emily: I only took one semester of Latin. It's all Greek to me.
Nikolas: All right, let me see what I can find.
Nikolas: Ok, this -- this talks about some kind of ritual.
Nikolas: See, a circle, the sun, stars. Well, ok, something about swimming naked in a river. We'll have to put that one on our list. Come on. Hey, come on. We'll get through this, ok, I promise.
Emily: I know, I know. Keep reading.
Nikolas: Ok. Here it is. Here it is, the Garden of Aphrodite. Seems to be connected to some -- yeah, some island in Greece called Kronosa.
Emily: Does it say Kronosa is tied to undoing the curse?
Nikolas: Um -- no, no, it's not that specific, but I know one way to find out.
Luke: When I signed that letter, I didn't know my name. I was so pumped full of drugs, I didn't even know there was a letter until I was out of the hospital, over the wall, and the fog started to lift.
Skye: Right, so you took off to go find a lead on to where Laura was taken.
Luke: Yes, I did. I went to the hospital. I thought I could pick up her trail maybe there. It's all pretty vague, but I was sitting in a room and I was head-whacked from behind, and I when I came to, I was in a straitjacket strapped to the chair and my head felt like an overripe watermelon.
Skye: You were drugged all this time?
Luke: Yeah. My first moment of lucidity that I can recall was sometime last month. And I've been trying to put the clues together as to who could be behind this, but they're few and far between and hard to hold on to. The only thing that I know for sure is that the orderlies kept talking about a "she."
Luke: It fits her gothic horror show flair, yeah.
Skye: Well, what about the letter?
Luke: The letter. One day, after an injection containing some very nasty surprises, they put a pen in my hand and they made me write a letter. I didn't know what I was writing, what I was doing, what I was signing, but I did it, I was so ripped. And then I totally forgot about it until I was out of there and things started to come back together and I started to follow your trial. I realized the damage I'd done. I am sorry.
Skye: I knew there had to be an explanation.
Luke: Oh, I'm so sorry, Blaze.
Skye: I know. I know. But then somebody starting sending me emails on the internet pretending to be you. They even used the evacuation numbers that we drew the night of the fire, so of course I bought that it was you. And then they asked me to meet them at the pier and I went. But instead, Ric showed up.
Luke: A setup.
Skye: Yeah. One of many, too many. I got to tell you, Iím a little tired of being the designated fall guy here.
Luke: Yeah, me, too. We both got axes to grind here.
Skye: Luke, we have got to find out who's doing this.
Luke: We will. We will, I promise you that. I got a really strong feeling that whoever is behind this is right here in Port Charles. We'll find them.
Ric: Skye had help. Apparently, her accomplice pretended to be hit by the van, the driver got out. You can figure out the rest.
Edward: Driver hurt?
Ric: No, just rendered ineffective long enough for her and whoever was helping her to get away.
Edward: Please, have your men try not to hurt Skye? I mean, she's desperate. She's not dangerous.
Ofc. Serino: Look what I found.
Ric: Where -- where did you get that?
Woman: Some guy gave me 73 bucks to trade my ratty clothes for this fancy getup.
Ric: Ok, what did the guy look like?
Woman: A street dude, scruffy, like the rest of us. Kind of cute, tall. A real smooth talker.
Carly: Ok, Sonny, hear me out, ok, before you blow a fuse. I just -- I need to tell you. I know I promised not to go see my father again, but I did. I went over there, and it was just to say goodbye. It was the last time --
Sonny: Carly, Carly --
Carly: And I know you probably don't believe me. You think it's just a pattern of lies that Iím going to start and I'm going to sneak off to see him at all times, but it's not the case.
Sonny: Carly, Carly -- I know you're telling the truth.
Sonny: Jason was there.
Carly: In my father's room? What were you doing? Were you spying on me?
Jason: Spy-- no, I'm not spying. I was looking for information, and Durant came back early. I got stuck in the room. Carly, I know -- I know what you said to him was hard. But breaking things off with Durant is the right -- right choice.
Sonny: I'm glad you told me.
Edward: You sounded so sure that Luke was Skyeís accomplice. How would you know that?
Heather: It doesn't take a detective to figure it out. Remember Skyeís heartfelt televised appeal? She practically begged Luke to rescue her. If he's back in town, he must have seen it. The news station played it over and over again.
Ric: Yeah, yeah, I agree, Luke makes sense. Skye was supposed to meet him on the pier when I caught her there.
Edward: It's not a comforting thought. Spencer's nothing but trouble. Keep me posted, please.
Ric: Yeah, well, as long as the cooperation goes both ways. If you hear anything from Skye, I expect you to let me know. Otherwise, Iím not going to be able to insure Skyeís outcome.
Edward: It's understood.
Ric: I want you to put an A.P.B. out on Luke Spencer.
Luke: I love a resourceful woman.
Skye: Did you bring home the bacon?
Luke: I'm about to make you very, very happy!
Skye: Oh, you've made me so happy! I'm starving! What do we got, what do we got?
Skye: Oh! Cheeseburgers! Oh, I am so happy. I can't remember the last time I had a decent anything. Wait. Where did these come from?
Luke: Oh, don't worry, they were only in the garbage a couple of days.
Luke: I'm joking! It's a little homeless humor. No, I went over to Kellyís, I snuck in the back, and, when Mike wasn't looking, I swiped one of his orders. Bon appetit, mon petit chou.
Skye: Ew! Tofu!
Alexis: I got here as soon as I could. What's going on now?
Emily: No need to panic. We're fine.
Nikolas: Yeah, we just need some information from you. So you said that Mikkos took your mother away to break the curse, is that right?
Nikolas: Do you remember where?
Alexis: Not off the top of my head, no.
Nikolas: Well, if I said it, would you recognize it?
Nikolas: Well, tell me if either of these two ring a bell -- the Garden of Aphrodite or the island of Kronosa. Either of those?
Alexis: The island of Kronosa sounds familiar.
Nikolas: Ok, then that's where I'll start.
Alexis: You are not going to Greece.
Nikolas: Yes, I am, right away.
Alexis: Absolutely not, Nikolas.
Nikolas: I have to. It's the only way that I can help her.
Alexis: Lifting the curse turned out to be worse than living under it. Helena murdered my mother, remember?
Emily: I'm not afraid. Elizabeth's take on this is right, the only way to overcome Helenaís curse is to fight it, so we're both going.
Carly: Have I told you how wonderful you are lately?
Sonny: Hmm, not lately.
Carly: I mean it, Sonny. Really, you have been above -- above and beyond supportive and understanding with everything going on. You know, when I wanted to set out to find my father, you were so supportive, and then when it turned out he was a fed -- you know, you could've drawn a hard line and forbidden me to see him.
Sonny: Like that would have worked.
Carly: Sweetie, that's sort of my point. You know, I mean, you let me come to the right decision on my own. I'm so -- I'm so grateful.
Sonny: That's because I know you. I know how you're made; what you think. That's what happens when, you know, someone becomes a part of you.
Luke: What kind of a fiend thinks up a thing like tofu burgers?
Skye: Ew, no one I want to know. I mean, really, what is the point?
Luke: I love that about you. You look like a pale, delicate flower, but you're really a man's woman.
Skye: What, because I can enjoy the occasional cheeseburger?
Luke: No, because you travel well.
Skye: That might be the nicest thing you ever said to me.
Luke: No, it isn't. But you -- you've forgotten.
Skye: Well, I'd be open to a refresher course.
Sam: Thank God you're all right.
Jason: I'm fine.
Sam: No, I was so worried that Sonny had sent you to do something, and I -- you know what, forget about it. It's business. I'm not going to ask you what happened. Jason, it's just that I left the building and I was tailed. I was followed. They're watching us.
Jason: I know, I know, I know. They're everywhere. It's only the beginning.
Sam: Ok, well, then can you tell me what's going on, or --
Jason: Carly -- you know, she cut things off with Durant, and he's going to want to take it out on me and Sonny.
Carly: Hmm. Ok. I'm not fishing for compliments or anything here, but, um --
Sonny: "But, um, but, um" what?
Carly: I don't know, today must be my day for extraordinary self-restraint because I found this on your dresser upstairs, and I didn't open it or anything.
Sonny: Wow. I don't think you would've like it if you opened it.
Carly: Oh, so Iím taking it it's not a present for me then?
Sonny: Actually, it's a present for me. Open it.
Sonny: Open it.
Carly: It's a wedding band.
Sonny: Yeah, it took me a while to, you know, order a new one.
Carly: So why aren't you wearing it?
Sonny: Well, I was hoping Iíd find the right time to ask you to put it on my finger.
Steven: Carly's wanted to know her father all her life. Letting go of that dream must've been pretty major for her. Do you think she meant it?
John: She seemed to.
Steven: Well, it's not as if you really need her anymore. You got Alcazar boxed in a corner. Sonny's already given him a warning. Hostilities will escalate, and it's only a matter of time before Corinthos will make a real move on him.
John: You're right. Carly doesn't even need to factor into it.
Steven: Yeah. Unless things have gotten more complicated. Unless, John, you've started to develop real feelings for your daughter.
Nikolas: All right, I've spoken to Mrs. Lansbury. She'll stay here while Iím gone. Lucky and Elizabeth are just a phone call way, so --
Emily: That won't be necessary. Didn't you hear me? I'm going with you.
Nikolas: You can't come with me.
Emily: Listen, Mikkos and Kristen went to Kronosa together. What if you need me to break the curse?
Nikolas: I don't know what Iím walking into, what could go wrong, how dangerous it could be.
Emily: We'll find out together, Nikolas. I don't know anything about this curse or how it works, but I know that we're stronger together.
Skye: Thank you.
Luke: My pleasure.
Skye: I don't just mean for the extra body heat. I mean for being the man that I was so sure that you are. You know, even after that letter showed up and I was convicted and everyone was convinced that you'd betrayed me, my heart wouldn't believe it. I knew that there was some other force keeping you away. And that one day you'd come back and everything would make sense again.
John: All right, what if you're right? What if this is about more than just catching the bad guys? I'm a father who's reunited with his daughter he never knew he had. All of a sudden, I realize Iíve got this -- this big hole, something big has been missing in my life, and that's Carly. What difference does that make to you?
Steven: Maybe I care about her, too.
Sonny: I threw the old ring into the water off the Elm Street Pier on a really bad night.
Carly: When you thought that we were over.
Sonny: I tried to convince myself that the promises I made to you no longer existed. It was a symbolic gesture. And it was useless. You know, I could throw as many rings in the water as I wanted, I could tell myself we were done, you know, file the papers, sign them, but in my heart, I knew I was still married to you. And it took me a long time to, you know, figure that out. Even when I asked you to move back in, you know, I used to tell myself it was for Michael and Morgan. But I just -- I mean, I don't know, I was trying to convince myself that I didn't need you.
Carly: Sonny, I need you just as badly. Just as badly. And I know I haven't told you lately. It's just because I've been so hurt. Especially with Sam. You know, having another woman pregnant with your child -- it's a constant struggle for me every day. And maybe that's why suddenly it was so important for me to find my father. But what I found out is that it doesn't matter if I call myself Carly or Caroline or John Durantís daughter. I want to be with you. Even though it's really hard sometimes.
Sonny: Well, what would make it easier?
Carly: If you were different.
Carly: And if I were, too. You know, if we hadn't done all the things that we did wrong. But we had us, you know, and we're still here.
Sonny: Maybe that's what the wedding vows are for, you know? I don't know, it's like maybe telling you upfront that marriage is going to be difficult and it's going to be a struggle, and some days you're going to want to throw it away. But that's where the wedding -- the rings come in because that's a reminder of the promise you made to hold on, you know? Like the promise I made to you. You -- you want to put the ring on my finger?
Carly: For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer.
Sonny: In sickness and in health. Good times, bad times.
Carly: I love you.
Sonny: I love you.
Woman: I understand you need me.
Lorenzo: Well, hello. I need what you do. I'm ordering a hit.
Woman: If you want Sonny Corinthos dead, it'll cost double. He's a high-risk undertaking.
Lorenzo: I want you to kill a federal prosecutor, John Durant. And I want you to make it look like Sonny Corinthos is responsible.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Skye: I'm not living this way one more second.
Georgie: I want to make love with you.
Dillon: Tonight will be classic.
Courtney: I have to cancel our date.
Jax: We can find someone to take care of him. I know the perfect chaperone.
Nikolas: Could you tell us where to find the Garden of Aphrodite?
