General Hospital Transcript Thursday 12/2/04
Proofread by Brian
(Nikolas and Emily wed knowing that Nikolas will soon be arrested for murder; Sam drunkenly kisses Jason; Luke plays along with Heather's delusion in the hope of locating Skye and Laura.)
Luke: That's right, Laura, I belong to you. I could never love anyone the way I love you. Let's start over. Let's start over and do it right this time. Let's renew our vows. Will you marry me, tonight?
Heather: Of course Iíll marry you.
Skye: Who's that? Luke? You're different from the others. I don't know you.
Girl: You do know me.
Skye: Go away. Who are you?
Girl: I'm the child you always wanted, but can't ever have.
[Chamber music plays]
Jax: I had to make a call.
Courtney: Must be a really important deal.
Jax: You have no idea.
Alan: Where's Emily?
Elizabeth: She'll be here.
Alan: Well, what's taking so long?
Elizabeth: She's a bride. She wants to be perfect. Don't worry. She's almost ready.
Emily: What are you doing here?
Connor: I came here for you.
Skye: You're my child?
Girl: You used to think about me all the time.
Skye: Oh, I -- I wanted a baby girl so badly, and I -- I wanted to give you everything that -- I wanted you to grow up strong and smart and confident. But you never grew up because I stopped thinking about you; because I found out that I could never have children. You were just another wish that I made that never came true. Just like all the other wishes. I have nothing left.
Girl: Nothing here, but there are lots of other places to go.
Girl: The place I came from.
[Chamber music plays]
Lucky: Calm down. She'll be here.
Alan: I'm going to check on Emily.
Elizabeth: Just give her a couple minutes.
Lesley Lu: Maybe she ran away.
Elizabeth: Hey, you know before a dance recital, when you get butterflies in your tummy?
Lesley Lu: Mm-hmm.
Elizabeth: Well, that's how Emily feels right now. She's just a little nervous.
Emily: What happened? Did you escape?
Connor: I got a dishonorable discharge. Turns out my leave had already been granted and my jerk of a C.O. was holding on to the papers. Emily, if I'd have stayed with my unit just a few days longer, I wouldn't be here right now.
Emily: None of this would have happened.
Connor: Mary and Iíd be getting ready for Christmas. She loved Christmas. Anyway, the charges are dropped. I'm free.
Emily: And Nikolas is going to prison for the rest of his life.
Connor: I wish I could put your life back together.
Emily: Nikolas and I only have a few hours, and you won't ruin one more second. So leave.
Connor: I'm sorry. I'm sorry for everything. I know that ain't much, but that's all I have.
Emily: Connor, please, just go.
Connor: Be happy.
Emily: Connor was just leaving.
Nikolas: I'm turning you in.
Emily: All the charges have been dropped, Nikolas.
Connor: My leave had already been granted.
Nikolas: Wow, Connor. Just think of all the suffering that could have been avoided if you'd have just waited for your paperwork to be processed.
Connor: I know. And I apologize for that. I truly regret all the pain that I caused Emily and you.
Nikolas: You know he won't leave it at that.
Emily: He just did, Nikolas. And we're late for a wedding, our wedding.
Mac: I don't like this. Emily and Nikolas are both gone.
Felicia: I doubt if they made a run for it. But if they did, I hope they're halfway to Canada by now.
Nikolas: Sorry for the delay. Everything's fine. It's fine. I'm ready for a wedding. Are you?
Luke: I'll never forget that day, the day the most beautiful girl in the world chose to spend her life with me, chose to give me her hopes, her dreams, her future. No one ever loved me the way you did, Laura. No one ever believed in me like you did. And nobody ever had the life we had, full of adventure and romance, out on the road, all over the world.
Heather: We were brilliant.
Luke: I lost you more than once, but we never gave up on each other. You always knew I'd find you and that we'd start again a new life together.
Heather: Can we?
Luke: Oh, yeah, I promise we can. I promise. As soon as we get out of this garden, we're going to jump in the old pink Cadillac, I'm going to gun it, and we'll fly off into our new life, I swear. So, I, Luke, take you, Laura, now and forever. I can't do this. I can't!
[Pachelbel's "Canon" plays]
["Bridal March" plays]
Father Coates: Please be seated. Dearly beloved, family and friends, we're gathered today to honor Emily Quartermaine and Nikolas Cassadine and to celebrate their joyous union as husband and wife. Many of us know what it cost for Emily and Nikolas to be here today. We know what their love has survived so far and that challenges lie ahead. But their love is rare, priceless. It is to be honored and protected at all costs. You may say your vows.
Emily: I've dreamed of this day since the first moment I saw you. And this dream carried me through illness and through despair. This dream gave me the courage to hold on when all reason told me to let go. You're my first love. Nikolas, you're my only one. And I'll stay by your side, as close as I can, for the rest of my life. I promise to believe in you and to honor you, to be the constant in your life, as you'll be in mine. From this day forward, you'll always be with me, and I'll be with you, till death do us part.
Heather: Why did you stop? What's wrong?
Luke: I -- I can't marry you out here. Sweetheart, look, I mean, not in the dark, in the cold. I don't even have a ring to give you.
Heather: You want out, don't you?
Luke: No. No, I promise I donít. It's just that I want to shout to the world how much I love you, just like before. I want to give this town the greatest wedding it's seen since the last time we got hitched.
Heather: How do we do that?
Luke: I've got everything set.
Heather: You do?
Luke: I know exactly what you deserve, and I'm going to make sure you get it.
Skye: What would you have been like if I hadn't stopped believing? What would you have grown up to be? I know -- I know that you would be loved by me, by everyone. I know that you'd have no regrets. I know that you'd have a place in this world. I'm sorry I could never give you any of that. Just another way that I've failed in my life. I'm sorry. Listen, I -- I have no right to be even thinking of you. You should just go.
Girl: Don't make me go back alone. Come with me.
Skye: All right. If you want.
Girl: Not that way. Out there.
Nikolas: Ok. In my heart, I'm already married to you. And I have been for a long time. I mean, we've survived fire, mass confusion, the Cassadines. And speaking of them -- my family has taught me many things over the years, but you taught me how to love and how to get past my fear and my anger. You taught me how to hold on, how to forgive. And I am so sorry that the future we are facing is not the one I planned for you and that the life I am giving you is not the one you deserve. But I know that we will find a way to make each other happy. We may have lost the dream, but I promise you that we will win this silence because we have each other and we have our love and this -- this single perfect moment right now. And for me, I will always have that smile, your determination, your hope, and your faith. And no matter where we are in this crazy world, I promise you that I will be right there with you. You are so beautiful. And I'm not just asking you to be my wife. I'm inviting you to be my lover and my friend and my partner, for as long as we both shall live.
Father Coates: If any person can show just cause as to why these two should not be lawfully joined together, speak now or forever hold your peace.
Father Coates: I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride.
["Wedding march" plays]
Sam: Thank you.
Jax: I see that you took pity on Ned and Lois and sent Diego home.
Courtney: Well, I felt bad enough that Diego dragged Brook Lynn all over Mexico. I didn't want to add insult to injury by bringing him along to dance with her at a Quartermaine wedding.
Monica: Well, young lady, you gave us quite a scare. What happened? Why were you so late?
Emily: I just wanted everything to be perfect.
Alan: Well, it certainly was.
Monica: You know, Paige would have been very, very proud of you.
Emily: Yeah, I felt her watching over us today. Didn't you?
Emily: And so was grandmother.
Monica: Most definitely.
Emily: I'm happier than Iíve ever been.
Lucky: Hey, everyone, I'd like to make a toast.
Alan: All right, then, Lucky, go.
Lucky: To Emily. Not very long ago, we were skateboarding in the hallways upstairs.
Alan: Who could forget all the noise?
Lucky: We taught Nikolas how to make it in the real world. You know, how to make toast. We even taught him how to put gas in his own car.
Elizabeth: Now, that was a challenge.
Lucky: Well, nobody expected things to turn out this way or that my brother would fall so completely in love with my best friend. I wish you both the very best. Here's to the luckiest man in the world.
All: Here, here.
Elizabeth: Cheers. Ok, now I would like to present the first dance of Mr. and Mrs. Nikolas Cassadine.
Steven: Bravo, bravo.
Lucky: Thanks for helping me out.
Elizabeth: Hey, Iím just doing my job as the matron of honor. Anyway, you promised me a dance.
Lucky: And you got it.
Sam: Ahem. Are you going to finish that? No? Thank you.
Jason: Oh --
Sam: You want to dance? No? Ok. Well, it's a good thing you're driving, because -- well, I just -- I can't, so that's -- ok. Thank you, Alice. Well, whoever picked out the champagne did a really good job.
Dillon: Mom, I don't want to dance with you.
Tracy: Would you rather end up in a Mexican jail, darling? Dance. And while you're dancing, tell me about Luke and Skye.
Dillon: I don't know about Luke and Skye.
Tracy: Do you know where they are?
Dillon: Mom, do you think Luke would tell me something like that?
Tracy: So you've spoken to him?
Dillon: No, I -- no.
Tracy: What about Heather?
Dillon: I don't know about Heather, ok?
Tracy: You wouldn't lie to your mother, would you?
Courtney: Look. She's going to drop him.
Jax: Tracy's a little scary.
Courtney: No kidding.
Jax: You know, we've put in our appearance. Why don't we take a little walk around the lake, you and I?
Courtney: But isn't it a little chilly?
Jax: I'll keep you warm.
Courtney: All right. Well, all right, will you just promise me something first?
Tracy: So, Luke and Skye were convinced that Heather was going to try to kill your grandfather before the annulment went through?
Dillon: Are you serious?
Tracy: Now Luke, Skye, and Heather have all conspicuously vanished. Your grandfather is nervous as a cat. Something is going on.
Dillon: Mom, I don't know what to tell you.
Jax: Excuse me.
Dillon: Ok, I --
Jax: Could I cut in?
Dillon: Yes! Yes, you can.
Courtney: Hi. Dance?
Tracy: Oh, just the snake I wanted to stomp on.
Jax: Now, that isn't very nice, is it?
Courtney: So where's Georgie?
Dillon: Oh, I don't know, probably grounded because Mac said that he would put two bullets in me if I went within 10 yards of her.
Jason: Sam, Sam, Sam, are you ok?
Sam: Yeah, yeah, I'm having a great time.
Jason: Yeah, you haven't touched alcohol for, like, nine months. Maybe you should slow down. Just slow down a little.
Sam: Too late.
Sam: I'm drunk. Want to dance?
Jason: You know, I --
Sam: Come on.
Jason: I'm not really --
Sam: Let's dance.
Jason: I'm not really a good dancer.
Sam: Ok, well, it looks like you're safe, for now.
Elizabeth: Ok, everyone, it's time to throw the bouquet. Come on, come around! Bobbie, come up, and Felicia, Tracy, Angela.
Alan: Tracy? Come on, Tracy.
Felicia: What about you? You're single.
Emily: She's right, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: No, no, no, I'm the matron of honor. I don't have to go!
Nikolas go, go, go, go, go. Do it!
Felicia: All right. Ready, set -- go!
Nikolas: Excuse me. Listen, I wanted to thank you for being the first Spencer to welcome me and treat me like family.
Bobbie: Aw, Nikolas, you are family. I just wish your mother could be here, because Laura would love every second of this.
Nikolas: I know. I keep thinking she's going to walk through the door.
Bobbie: Well, she is here with you in spirit, and she loves you very much.
Heather: I don't like this.
Luke: It's your wedding party, sweetheart.
Heather: At the Quartermaines'?
Luke: Yeah. Isn't it great?
Heather: Why are we sneaking around? Why don't we just go in the front door?
Luke: Don't you want to surprise everybody? Shh. Come on, take a look and see who's here. Everybody's here. Look. Oh, there's Lucky. Didn't he turn out to be a handsome devil?
Heather: Isn't that Emily Quartermaine?
Heather: Well, why is she wearing a wedding dress?
Luke: Because she wants to be just like you. You're her idol.
Heather: All these people came to my party?
Luke: Yes. Oh, sweetheart, they're so anxious to see you again, Laura.
Lucky: Ok, it's me again. All you single guys, front and center.
Sam: Oh, that's you. Come on, go. Go. He's tossing the garter. Go. Do it. Do it. Seriously.
Dillon: Oh, oh, oh.
Nikolas: On the other leg.
Nikolas: Ready? All right, get over there.
Man: All right, here it comes.
Sam: One --
Nikolas: All right, one --
Sam: Two --
Nikolas: Two, three!
Luke: Well, what's the problem, sweetheart?
Heather: It's been so long.
Luke: Well, that's why I put together this party -- so all our friends could celebrate your being home.
Heather: Are you sure?
Luke: Have I ever lied to you?
Steven: So, are they going to make you dance with the guy who caught the garter?
Elizabeth: Jason? No, no, I'm sure he wouldn't cooperate.
Steven: Ok, so, so it's ok for me to leave? I don't have to tell Jason to stay away from my sister?
Elizabeth: Oh, oh, oh, I get it. I'm supposed to be so eager to avoid a conversation about Jason that I just let you walk away?
Steven: That'd be the idea, yeah.
Steven: Are my duties as your escort fulfilled?
Elizabeth: They are. Thank you very much.
Steven: I had a blast. Ok. I'll see you.
Emily: I'm sorry about the garter.
Emily: We were just kidding around.
Nikolas: Sorry. I was aiming for Lucky.
Emily: You were?
Emily: I was aiming for Elizabeth.
Jason: Emily, you know Iím proud of you, right?
Emily: Well, if I ever had any doubts, you proved it by actually attending the reception.
Jason: I just -- you know, I just want you to be happy. And you are, and that's all that matters.
Emily: Thanks. This whole night has been so perfect and exactly as I dreamed.
Lucky: Hey, what are you guys still standing around for?
Lucky: I spent a fortune on this hotel suite for you guys.
Lucky: Now go.
Lucky: Hey. Whoa, whoa, whoa. All right.
Elizabeth: Love you guys. Ok, go, go, go, go, go! Go on. And they lived happily ever after.
Lucky: I hope so. They deserve the best of everything. So do you.
Elizabeth: I'm doing all right.
Luke: Surprise, everybody!
Tracy: Who the hell just barged in?
Alan: What are you up to?
Luke: Thank you, Alan! Thank you, everybody! You can congratulate me. And thanks for being here. Tonight, Iím going to remarry my beautiful blushing bride, Laura.
Skye: You can see the whole world from here, can't you? Look at the moon.
Girl: Stand with me.
Skye: I canít. Everything hurts.
Girl: You'll feel better out here.
Skye: I am so tired of hurting. I'm so tired of being wrong.
Girl: There's no reason to stay.
Skye: There's Luke.
Heather: Hello, everybody. Sorry I've been away for so long.
Luke: Well, don't just stand there, people. Come on up and say hi to Laura!
Edward: Laura, Laura. How wonderful to see you.
Luke: You've been planning this party for a long time, haven't you?
Bobbie: Oh, yes, for ages and ages. Laura, welcome.
Tracy: You've lost your minds.
Luke: Come on, everybody! Come up, say hello! Laura hasn't seen you in a long time!
Brook Lynn: Our family is so weird.
Dillon: Yeah, I know. Just play along. If it's Luke Spencer, it's got to be important.
Bobbie: It's good to see you.
Alan: You look well.
Heather: Thank you.
Lucky: What the hell's going on?
Luke: Heather is a lunatic. She thinks she's Laura. She's got your mother and Skye stashed somewhere. Now, the better this game plays out, the faster we're going to find both of them. Understand?
Jason: Sam, just slow down, slow down!
Sam: You should have seen the look on your face when you caught the garter belt.
Jason: Yeah, you shouldn't have kept pushing me over there.
Sam: I have not seen you smile like that in so long. It was good. Ok. Now, we are going to do it right here, right now. Dancing.
Sam: No, yeah.
Jason: No, no.
Sam: Yes, seriously.
Jason: I don't dance. I can't dance.
Sam: Come on, nobody's around. Well, you do now. Come on.
Jason: That's fine. I don't want to dance.
Sam: Come on, please? You just put your arm here --
Jason: Sam, Sam, please --
Sam: And you put your arm here and then you just --
Jason: I don't want to dance.
Sam: I'm not going to bite. Please?
Jason: Ok, you need to get some rest.
Sam: Please, Jason, come on. I doubt I'm even going to remember tomorrow, so come on. Please? Ok.
Luke: Padre, we're ready to get hitched as soon as you're ready to do the hitching.
Heather: Thanks for being here.
Luke: Just go with the flow, father.
Heather: Everything's so wonderful. It's true, isn't it? We're getting married again?
Luke: Yes, we are, baby, we are. I wish Skye was here so we could rub her nose in it.
Heather: Oh --
Luke: So she could see once and for all that I love you and not her.
Heather: That would take too long.
Luke: Well, we could send somebody to get her. I mean, she would just -- she would hate this.
Heather: She would, wouldn't she?
Luke: Where did you say she was again?
Heather: She's in a pretty place. She's got a great view. She can see for miles and miles, water all around. She can see the whole city. Knowing Skye, she's probably afraid of heights, since she's afraid of everything else. Poor Skye. But that's all right. She won't be there for long. Skye in the sky. No woman's an island.
Luke: Mac? She killed Ross Duncan. She damn near killed Edward. She's all yours.
Heather: Luke, no! No! Wait! Wait! Don't! Don't leave me!
Lucky: You aren't going anywhere.
Heather: Don't leave me!
Skye: Luke isn't for me. He belongs with Laura. He always will.
Girl: But you have me. Come and be with me, Mommy.
Skye: There's really nothing to be afraid of, is there? Soon, no one will ever hurt me ever again.
Nikolas: I love you, Mrs. Cassadine.
Emily: I love you, too.
Jax: Ok, watch your head.
Courtney: Wow. I knew someone was rebuilding the Port Charles hotel. I had no idea it was you.
Jax: Yeah, picture a really modern hotel, five-star restaurant, a bar up on the roof. It's going to be beautiful.
Courtney: Well, how did Tracy get mixed up in all this?
Jax: Oh, I bought the land right out from under her.
Jax: So she's not very happy with me right now.
Jax: And I made some office space for myself, and one more thing, one more thing.
Courtney: Wait. Ok.
Courtney: Oh. Metro Court. That's nice.
Jax: Yeah, as in "Courtney," but short.
Courtney: No. You named a hotel after me?
Jax: I did.
Jax: I hope that's ok.
Sam: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I never said I was good.
Jason: Yeah. Ok -- ok --
Jason: You know what? You know what? You should probably get some sleep.
Sam: No. Come on. Jason, I don't want to sleep, not for a single second. Please? No.
Jason: Just try not to step on my foot anymore.
Sam: I'm not going to -- ok. It's not so bad, is it?
Jason: No, but --
Sam: Wait -- whoa -- sorry!
Jason: Are you ok?
Skye: It's so peaceful up here, isn't it? Everything seems so far away.
Girl: Don't be scared. I'm with you.
Skye: Oh, I'm not scared. For the first time in forever, I'm not afraid at all.
Luke: Skye! Are you in there?
Luke: Can you hear me?
Girl: Don't listen to him! Come with me!
Luke: Skye! Skye!
Girl: I love you, Mommy.
Girl: Come with me, please.
Luke: Can you hear me? Skye! Blaze? Skye!
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Sam: I'm wondering what it would be like to kiss you.
Sonny: Forget the deal, forget the blackmail, forget the file. We will settle this tonight.
