Courtney: Is Diego here?

Lorenzo: Not since we both found out I was his father.

Courtney: Well, I was hoping he came here to talk to you.

Lorenzo: Well, apparently he took your warning to heart and he's staying as far away from me as possible.

Maria: You're here. Oh, don't worry about me, Diego. I probably look much worse than I feel. Oh.

Diego: The doctor says you'll recover. My "sister" is a very strong woman.

Maria: I guess I've had to be.

Diego: Why didn't you tell me that Lorenzo Alcazar was my father?

Maria: Oh -- oh, God. I -- I didn't see any good in it.

Diego: What about the rest?

Maria: The rest?

Diego: My mother. You lied about her, too, didn't you, Maria? Or, should I say "Mom"?

Ric: What are you doing?

Alexis: You're going to make me lose my place.

Ric: Mm-hmm.

Alexis: Mm-hmm.

Ric: Would that be such a bad thing?

Alexis: Mm-hmm, because I have appointments to keep, and I have to prepare for them.

Ric: All right. Well, I realize how dedicated you are to your clients, so I spoke with your secretary and had her clear the next two weeks off your calendar.

Alexis: For what?

Ric: Well, I just thought you might like to join me -- on our honeymoon.

 [Knock on door]

Carly: Oh, God. Ok, just give me a minute, ok? I am so not -- I don't mean to be rude. I wasn't expecting you.

Sonny: I got a call from Michael saying that you and Leticia had high fevers, you were in bed, and he needed me to make him breakfast.

Carly: Well, he lied again.

Sonny: Ok, we got to do something about this.

Carly: Maybe we need to do something about us, Sonny.

Lorenzo: Did you speak to Brook Lynn? Diego would probably be in touch with her.

Courtney: I came here first.

Lorenzo: I'll ask Lois to talk to Brook Lynn.

Courtney: Diego is my responsibility. I prefer to handle this alone.

Lorenzo: Then why did you come here?

Courtney: It was a mistake. You know, Diego barely knows you. Hopefully it'll stay that way.

Diego: I don't understand. Why didn't you tell me you were my mother?

Maria: I couldnít. I was too afraid.

Diego: Afraid of -- of what? Maria, please, I have to know the truth.

Maria: I had an affair with Lorenzo Alcazar. I knew he was dangerous, but I didn't care. I was young, doing drugs. Nothing mattered except the next good time. Then I saw Lorenzo get shot. I ran away, afraid for my life. Nine months later, I gave birth to the most beautiful baby I had ever seen.

Diego: No, no, no, please don't tell me that!

Maria: You want the truth? Giving birth to you was the most important thing I ever did.

Diego: Yeah. Then why did you lie about me?

Maria: I found out Lorenzo was still alive. I was afraid he'd take you away from me.

Diego: You're my mother. How could he take me away?

Maria: He had lawyers and money. I was an ex-drug user with nothing. I wouldn't have had a chance, if he even bothered to take me to court.

Diego: So it was easier to lie and call me your brother, right?

Maria: It wasn't because I didn't love you. It was because I loved you so much.

Diego: No --

Maria: Diego, I gave you the best life that I could.

Diego: Up till you disappeared and had me moved around from foster home to foster home.

Maria: That was never what I wanted. When you were arrested for shoplifting, I went to pick you up and pay your fine. I never dreamed that I'd be deported. I cried myself to sleep for months.

Diego: So did I.

Maria: Diego, I'm sorry.

Diego: You let me live a lie. That's not how a mother acts.

Maria: I was saving money, living for the day when I could send for you. When I heard Lorenzo was in Port Charles, I was afraid he'd figure it out, that he'd recognize a part of himself in you.

Diego: I used to spend hours, hours trying to figure out what my parents looked like. Do you understand how stupid I feel? Huh? Knowing that my parents never existed!

Maria: They were my parents, Diego, your grandparents. And if they had lived to know you, they would have loved you as much as I love you.

Diego: Oh, why should I believe you, of all people? You lied to me about everything, everything!

Jax: Diego, you all right?

Diego: Leave me alone.

Jax: Hey, hey, listen --

Diego: What?

Jax: Slow down, ok? Don't you think you've been running long enough?

Alexis: We can't go on a honeymoon.

Ric: Why not?

Alexis: Because honeymoons are for people who have weddings. We got married in our jeans in the hospital, and I think our vows went something like, "I'm not sure this is going to work, good luck."

Ric: Ok, ok. Yeah, look, I realize that our marriage started out with that practical element, but I think that we've, you know, explored other parameters since then.

Alexis: And it's calmed me down, I think, don't you?

Ric: Remarkably.

Alexis: The sex is good.

Ric: Hmm.

Alexis: Thanks.

Ric: All right, listen, will you do me one favor?

Alexis: Sure.

Ric: Please just try to imagine, if you would, being on our honeymoon -- or, sabbatical, extended vacation, whatever you want to call it -- and the two of us are just lounging in the resort and exploring all those wonderful little things that you like so very much. Hmm? Hmm?

Alexis: Ok.

Ric: What do you think? This might be a good idea?

Alexis: Mm-hmm.

Ric: Come on.

Alexis: Ok, I'll go.

Ric: Yeah.

Alexis: Two weeks -- two weeks is enough, you think?

Ric: Yeah, absolutely.

Alexis: All right. My daughter, remember? Kristina?

Ric: Oh, come on. Yeah, I arranged for us to have a room right next door, with Viola at the ready. She'll be on the bunny slopes with Kristina, and then we're going to be, you know, going back to the room, enjoying each other --

Alexis: Did you say "slopes"?

Ric: Yeah. You know, they're mountains with snow on them in Aspen. It's a whole ski trip that I put together.

Alexis: Please don't take this the wrong way, but I would rather stay home and regrout the bathroom tile.

Carly: Well, Michael has been seeing us together a lot lately during the holidays -- Christmas, we spent New Yearís Eve together -- so obviously it's inspired him to plot our reunion.

Sonny: You know what? You're right. We've been giving him hope and, you know, we both know that our marriage isn't going to work. So what we got to do, we got to sit him down, make him understand that he can't keep --

Michael: Oh, hey, Dad. Thanks for coming.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah. I had a feeling that your mom and Leticia weren't sick at the same time. I'm just curious why you told me they were.

Michael: Is it possible that they got better really quick?

Carly: Not a chance.

Sonny: Ok, can you sit over there for -- yeah, there you go. Um -- you ever hear about the boy who cried "wolf"?

Michael: Sure.

Sonny: Mm-hmm.

Michael: Boy keeps saying that the wolf was coming to eat the sheep, but it's a false alarm. Then the wolf comes for real and no one believes him.

Sonny: Mm-hmm. You see any connection between you and that story?

Michael: Well, we don't own any sheep, and I never saw a wolf.

Carly: Hey -- that is not what your father's talking about, and you know it.

Michael: So what you're saying is, don't say people have a fever when they really don't, because when they really get sick no one will believe me?

Sonny: Exactly.

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: You see, when people lie, right, and they get caught, you know what happens?

Michael: What?

Sonny: Nobody believes them the next time.

Carly: When people don't trust one another because they've lied, then they don't have anything, because without trust you've got nothing.

Sonny: I know that you're sad because your mom and I are breaking up, and so are we. You got to believe that. But what happens is the more you keep pushing us to be together, it's not going to change because our divorce is still going to happen.

[Knock on door]

Carly: Hang on.

Sonny: Who's that?

Steven: Hey.

Carly: Hey.

Steven: Oh, wow. Ok, see, that robe looks great. But it's going to have to come off before we can work up a real sweat.

Lorenzo: Diego and I do not know each other well. Whether that changes will be our decision, not yours.

Courtney: You're a professional criminal who only cares about himself. All you are going to bring to Diego is more misery than he has already had.

Lorenzo: This isn't about Diego, is it? You still blame me for your miscarriage.

Courtney: You took me hostage and held me captive on your yacht. I jumped into freezing cold water to escape. Yeah, I survived, but my child didnít. Yeah, I blame you for that!

Lorenzo: And because you chose to jump overboard, I'm to blame? I don't deserve to be a father?

Courtney: You deserve to be in prison!

Lorenzo: I lost my niece, Sage. She's dead. Don't you think I have suffered enough?

Courtney: All I am asking is for you to have the decency to stay away from Diego. His life hasn't been much to speak of so far, and having a father like you will only make it worse.

Jax: I know you're angry. You have every right to be. Nothing hurts worse than being lied to by the ones you love.

Diego: How would you know? You probably have the perfect family.

Jax: Well, I thought I did once. Then it turned out I was wrong. My brother and father -- they laundered money for years through the family business and they didn't tell me about it because they knew that I'd shut it down. Well, when they got caught, we were all arrested, and I lost every dime I had.

Diego: Well, you're doing ok now.

Jax: Well, I have a talent for making money.

Diego: Are you trying to impress me or make me feel worse?

Jax: No -- Diego, the point I'm trying to make is that I didn't think that I would ever speak to my father or brother again, but I did. Now, even though they lied to me, I knew that they loved me.

Diego: Yeah, well, you had a happy ending. It's not going to be that way for me, Jax.

Jax: Well, with that kind of attitude, you're probably right.

Diego: I don't need this.

Jax: Look, the beginning -- the first 17 years of your life you had no control over. But the ending, happy or not, that's still up to you.

Diego: What am I supposed to do, huh? Tell Mari-- tell my mother it's ok she lied to me about everything?

Jax: Listen, your mother was younger than you are now when she had you, do you understand that? And she was afraid of losing you to a powerful man, and so she made mistakes. That's what makes us human. Now, she deserves forgiveness, Diego, from you, her son.

Eduardo: Such a pretty face to be covered with bruises. Is your nose broken?

Maria: No.

Eduardo: Good. There's a bright side to everything. I'm sorry for losing my temper, mi amor, but surely you understand the reasons.

Maria: Oh, I understand that I'm lucky our marriage will never happen.

Eduardo: You lied to me about who you are. I was nearly humiliated in front of my family.

Maria: You have a right to be angry, but not to beat me.

Eduardo: I apologized. It's best now for us to forget about each other and move on.

Maria: I'm not forgetting anything. You're going to pay for what you did to me.

Eduardo: How much will it take to keep you quiet?

Maria: Oh, no. I'm going to the police, Eduardo. And when they ask me what happened, I'm going to give them your name and tell them that you attacked me. Huh?

Eduardo: That would be a serious mistake.

Alexis: Falling down in the snow has never quite appealed to me.

Ric: You won't know until you try.

Alexis: Oh, I don't want to.

Ric: Alexis, you can have ski lessons.

Alexis: I don't want to.

Ric: Alexis, please, just humor me, ok? This is our honeymoon.

Alexis: How about a honeymoon on a nice, hot beach with sunscreen and piŮa coladas? Please don't subject me to frostbite and falling down a mountain with six-foot planks attached to my feet.

Ric: Look, that's only a small part of the activities on the mountain.

Alexis: I'm full aware that there are plenty of activities on the mountain. You can go to the E.R. and then you can go get fit for a cast and --

Ric: Yeah, but -- I know that's one way to look at it. See, I was looking at it more in terms of soaking in a hot tub privately, overlooking the snow-covered mountain.

Alexis: Oh. Well --

Ric: Yeah. Yeah, see there's a private sauna --

Alexis: Hmm.

Ric: Indoors overlooking the Rockies. Hmm?

Alexis: That doesn't sound so bad.

Ric: Look, look, look, look, look at this. All kinds of things. See?

Alexis: Oh -- oh.

Ric: It's a private spa --

Alexis: Mm-hmm.

Ric: Private steam --

Alexis: Ooh.

Ric: 32 different types of massage.

Alexis: Oh.

Ric: You like that, right?

Alexis: I do.

Ric: There's shops.

Alexis: Yeah.

Ric: There's plenty of things to do -- nightclubs, all kinds of activity. Don't you want to just go up there and take a look at it, see what you think for yourself? Hmm? Please?

Alexis: Do I have to take one of those chairs that's hanging by a wire?

Ric: Yeah, a chairlift. Yes, you do. I'll hold your hand the whole time.

Carly: Look, Steven, I'm not quite ready to go running. So maybe if you want to go, you should go without me.

Steven: It's totally ok. I'll wait.

Sonny: You can run laps in the hall until we're finished if you'd like.

Carly: Actually, you know, we're almost done here, but can you just give us --

Steven: Absolutely.

Carly: We need a minute, ok? Hey, Michael? Do you have any questions about what we just discussed?

Michael: No, Mom.

Sonny: How about I sweeten the deal here, ok? You lay off the phony emergency calls and all that stuff, and I'll take you and Morgan to the island.

Michael: All right, Dad!

Sonny: Ok, hold on. It's got to be all right with your mother and stuff, right?

Carly: It's fine as long as you behave yourself.

Michael: I will, Mom. I promise.

Sonny: All right, I will talk to you later, right?

Michael: Yes.

Sonny: Ok.

Carly: Thank you.

Michael: Not an emergency call or anything.

Sonny: No, no.

Carly: Yes.

Sonny: Hey, you guys, don't pull any muscles when you run.

Michael: I have to go tell Leticia and Morgan about the trip.

Carly: Ok. Sorry, just give me one second. I'll change.

Steven: It's fine. Hey, Carly?

Carly: Yeah?

Steven: Um -- with the kids away, this is a chance for us to do something special, just the two of us.

Carly: Ooh. What do you mean by "special"?

Steven: I mean it's a chance to be alone, really alone.

Carly: Ok, Steven, I need to tell you a little something about myself. Ok, the last -- hmm -- my history with men is that I get involved really quickly and I give way too much of myself away too fast, and I'm not doing that anymore. I learned from my mistakes, so whatever's happening between us and whenever we're going and wherever we're heading, it's got to be at my pace or it can't be at all. Ok?

John: Hello, Carly.

Carly: Hello.

John: Can I help you with the packages?

Carly: No, I'm fine. I can handle them.

John: If that's what you want. You ok?

Carly: Yeah, I'm fine. Is there anything else?

John: I heard that you wound up with Sonny on New Yearís Eve.

Carly: Oh, you heard?

John: Yeah, Steven mentioned it. He said that Michael got you guys together.

Carly: Yeah, well, he's having a little bit of a difficult time with us splitting up and we're handling it.

John: Oh, so you and Sonny aren't thinking about getting back together again?

Carly: No.

John: That's good.

Carly: You know, John? Let me give you a little bit of advice here, ok? Gloating over your daughter's divorce is not going to win you points with her.

Courtney: Brook.

Brook Lynn: Hey.

Courtney: Hey.

Brook Lynn: Have you heard from Diego at all?

Courtney: I was actually hoping he was with you. Come in.

Brook Lynn: Thanks.

Courtney: So, what happened after he left the Metro Court?

Brook Lynn: He went to go see Maria.

Courtney: What did she tell him?

Brook Lynn: Nothing that I know of. Last night I saw she was unconscious. I mean, we sat outside of her room talking in the hallway for, like, a few hours, but then my ma called on my cell, right? So I had to go, but he said he was going to stay. And when I went back this morning, he wasn't there.

Courtney: Well, did you ever speak to Maria?

Brook Lynn: That's Diegoís problem to solve. You know, he doesn't understand why she lied to him. And he doesn't understand why you lied to him, either.

Courtney: Well, that's easy. I just -- I hate Lorenzo Alcazar and I thought that it would be better if Diego never knew the truth.

Brook Lynn: No offense, but that's not really your call to make.

Courtney: You're right.

Brook Lynn: I mean, who cares if you don't like Diegoís father, right? That doesn't mean Diego shouldnít. And maybe you were wrong about Mr. Alcazar. I mean, I'm finding I was, so --

Courtney: All right, look, there's no chance you're seeing Lorenzo Alcazar in a new light because you found out he's related to Diego?

Brook Lynn: But maybe I'm just willing to see him for the person that he is, you know? I don't know why you hate him, but whatever he does, you're going to see it as some twisted, mixed-up thing, which I used to do, but I can't because it's not fair to Diego anymore. Maybe you should give Mr. Alcazar the benefit of the doubt.

Maria: Come any closer, I'll call for the nurse.

Eduardo: Go ahead, and call the doctor, too, because you're going to need them both -- when the brakes go out on your car, or when you slip on the ice and crack your skull wide open.

Maria: The nurse will be here any second.

Eduardo: You think you can fight me? I'm warning you, Maria. I'll see you dead --

Maria: You let me --

Eduardo: Before I let you put me in jail, huh?

Maria: Let me go! Get your hands off of me!

Diego: Stop! Stop! All right, old man!

Nurse: Enough! Let him up!

Elizabeth: Hey, Steven?

Steven: Hey, what's up?

Elizabeth: I need to talk to you.

Steven: Ooh, this sounds serious. Is everything --?

Elizabeth: When did you become Lorenzo Alcazar's doctor?

Steven: I didnít. You looked through my files.

Elizabeth: No --

Steven: Yes.

Elizabeth: No, I went to your office to see if you wanted to have lunch with me and his medical records are just sitting on your desk.

Steven: Ok, listen, I just wanted to learn more about this guy. No, don't -- what, how many times he's been shot, what his overall health is --

Elizabeth: Why? Why? Why, because you're competing with him for Carly? Come on, Steven, the guy's obsessed with her and he's the type that doesn't play fair.

Steven: Warning received. I'm going to put his file away and I'll never look at it again.

Elizabeth: Ok, but you -- I think you need to do a little more here, Steven. Listen -- ok, just listen to me.

Steven: Don't, donít.

Elizabeth: Angela Kellogg is a really nice girl.

Steven: Angela Kellogg?

Elizabeth: She wants to go out with you. Why can't you just give her a call and stop chasing around married women?

Steven: "Married women." She's getting a divorce. Sonny and Carly are getting divorced.

Elizabeth: Trust me -- not for long.

Steven: I so appreciate your concern. I love it. But I know what I'm doing and I'm not going to get hurt.

Sonny: Looks good -- fair to me, fair to Carly.

Jordan: Well, that's how I thought you'd want it. Have you had a chance to look over the custody agreement for Kristina?

Sonny: Yeah.

Jordan: Oh.

Sonny: It's already signed.

Jordan: Thank you.

Sonny: And this is for you.

Jordan: Oh, I don't accept gratuities, Sonny. My fees are high enough.

Sonny: Oh, no, no, it's not money. Just look inside.

Jordan: A roundtrip ticket to Puerto Rico and then some island I've never heard of.

Sonny: Sorry about the commercial flight. See, my jet's being renovated.

Jordan: So what's the deal? Do you want me to go down there and meet people on your behalf?

Sonny: Well, my island's got a hotel and casino. Remember I told you that I'm taking the kids all on vacation?

Jordan: Yeah.

Sonny: Well, I'd just like you to join us.

Jordan: Oh.

Carly: Hi.

Alexis: Hello.

Carly: I'm sorry. Sorry, sorry, sorry. Thanks.

Alexis: Shopping therapy?

Carly: Yeah -- well, not really, actually. Sonny's taking the boys to the island. They needed a lot of things.

Alexis: Carly --

Carly: Yeah?

Alexis: Nothing. Good luck.

Carly: Alexis, was there something you wanted to say to me?

Alexis: Does it ever bother you?

Carly: What? What?

Alexis: That Sonny's taking your children on vacation? Do you ever worry that you'll never see them again?

Carly: No, I never worry that Sonny is going to steal our children.

Alexis: Unless he disapproves of what you're doing or with whom you're doing it.

Carly: Alexis, do you remember what prompted you to tell me that Sonny was Kristinaís father in the first place?

Alexis: We thought we were going to die.

Carly: And in the face of death, I was comforted by the knowledge that my children would be taken care of by a devoted father and you didn't feel the same way about Ned or the Quartermaines. And you regretted not telling Sonny that he was Kristinaís father.

Alexis: It was a desperate moment and I forgot in that moment that where Sonny goes, bullets fly and cars explode.

Carly: Ok, now we're talking about security. I thought you were concerned with whether or not he would take your child.

Alexis: Everyone in Sonny's life is exposed to danger and maybe you can live with that. I canít.

Carly: Well, Alexis, maybe you should've considered that before you got pregnant with Sonny's child. Look, there's danger everywhere and wringing your hands about it doesn't help anybody.

Alexis: You're right. I shouldn't have brought it up.

Carly: Look, we all have fears, Alexis, and what matters is how we deal with them. Instead of spending all your time turning Sonny into the bogeyman, maybe you should take a look at your own behavior.

Sonny: A good attorney, you know, just doesn't write documents that stand up in court. They got to make sure that their client is not overwhelmed by their legal problems.

Jordan: By joining him and his children on his private island?

Sonny: Well, you know, every client's different.

Jordan: Oh, yes, well, I have to agree with you there. Um -- but really, Sonny, it wouldn't be prudent.

Sonny: Well, give me a good reason why it wouldn't be prudent.

Jordan: Well, we have a professional relationship and --

Sonny: Yes.

Jordan: Lying next to you on the beach would definitely be crossing that line.

Sonny: Oh, ok. So I will stay at the pool; you can have the beach all to yourself.

Jordan: Don't your children want to spend time alone with you?

Sonny: Yeah, but, you know, I'll be with them from the morning till the sun goes down, and then by that time everybody's going to want a break, you know.

Jordan: And that's me? I'm the break?

Sonny: Well, look, we can have some dinner, take a walk on the beach, take our shoes off, nice sand there. You know, I don't see anything negative about that. Do you?

Jordan: I don't want to be another Alexis Davis.

Sonny: Oh. Well, see, Alexis' problem was she wasn't honest, so let's just put the cards right on the table. Ok, I like you, you're a beautiful woman, and the fact that we're friends is fantastic. But I'm just saying that, you know, I'd just have more fun if you were there. Your turn.

Jordan: Oh --

[Sonny laughs]

Jordan: Um -- I like you, too --

Sonny: Right.

Jordan: And I think that we would have fun. But I have a policy against dating my clients and now would be a terrible time to break that policy.

Sonny: You know, I'm sure there's a loophole in that "policy" --

[Jordan laughs]

Sonny: And I will find it.

Eduardo: I demand to see the police commissioner.

Ofc. Murphy: I'll see if he's available. Mac?

Mac: Hmm?

Ofc. Murphy: Someone here to see you.

Mac: Mac Scorpio. What can I do for you?

Eduardo: This hoodlum attacked me. I want to press charges.

Diego: He was threatening my mother. He's probably the one who beat her up.

Mac: Any witnesses?

Ofc. Murphy: Ms. Sanchez says the kid's innocent, but the head nurse had to pull him off Mr. Sandoval.

Mac: All right. Officer Murphy will take your statement.

Eduardo: Yeah.

Ofc. Murphy: Right this way.

Mac: You get one phone call.

 [Phone rings]

Lorenzo: Yes.

Maria: Lorenzo, it's Maria. Diego knows I'm his mother.

Lorenzo: How did he seem?

Maria: Oh, he was confused and hurt. He left and he came back, probably to talk. But Eduardo was here, and he heard him threaten me.

Lorenzo: And what did he do?

Maria: Diego attacked Eduardo, which is what he deserved. But Eduardo had Diego arrested for assault. Please, Lorenzo, help your son.

Alexis: Hey, Viola.

Viola: Hi.

Alexis: Is she sleeping?

Viola: She should be up in about an hour.

Alexis: Ok. Listen, why don't you go relax, then, and find something to do.

Viola: Thanks. I can use it.

Alexis: Good.

Viola: Ok.

Alexis: Thanks. What are these?

Viola: They came by messenger. They're all addressed to Kristina.

Alexis: Oh. Hmm.

Alexis: Oh, my God. He did it.

Ric: Hey.

Alexis: Don't move.

Ric: What? What, what? Oh -- ooh. Ok, am I being propositioned or thanked?

Alexis: Thanked --

Ric: Really?

Alexis: For now. Thank you --

Ric: You're --

Alexis: For changing the destination to the beach. Thank you.

Ric: I -- oh, but I -- I didn't do that.

Alexis: She's going to love it. She's going to love this. You have really good taste!

Ric: Well --

Alexis: This is cute. You picked this out?

Ric: No. You know what? I think there might be a little bit of a mistake here. I did buy Kristina clothing, but it was for the -- it was for the ski trip, not the beach.

Alexis: All right, all right, you don't have to do that.

Ric: Alexis, I'm serious.

Alexis: I ran into Carly, and she said that Sonny was taking Michael and Morgan on vacation to that godforsaken island. He wants to take Kristina!

Steven: You wanted to see me, John?

John: Steven. Yes. I've got a job for you.

Steven: A job? I thought you were suspended.

John: This is personal. You remember the Mary Bishop case?

Steven: Sure. We found traces of D.N.A. in the pills that were used to kill Mary Bishop and they were a close match to Sage Alcazar, which led us to her uncle, who basically confessed.

John: Exactly. Well, I never filed that report. I always thought I could use it against Alcazar in the future.

Steven: And this has what to do with me?

John: The future is now. We're going to take down Lorenzo Alcazar before he becomes a problem.

Courtney: Help.

Carly: Ok, I'll try. What's going on?

Courtney: Diego went after Lorenzo with a gun at the masquerade party. I had to stop him from firing, so I had to tell him that Lorenzo was his father.

Carly: Well, I ran into Lorenzo at the hospital. I knew that he had told Diego the truth, but --

Courtney: Oh, did he mention that he doesn't want anything to do with his father or me? I mean, he blames me for lying, he blames Alcazar --

Carly: For everything? Yeah, for not caring enough to find out about the truth?

Courtney: How did you know?

Carly: Well, I have been there with both of my parents at some time or another.

Courtney: Oh, God, Carly, I just wish I had listened to you and told Diego in the first place. I mean, as it is, I haven't heard from him since the masquerade. I'm just -- I'm worried about him, Carly. I'm afraid he's going to do something crazy.

Carly: Ok, well, hey, have you ever considered that maybe having Lorenzo as the father could be good for Diego?

Courtney: Lorenzo is a vicious, cold -- ok, I'm sorry, but being with Lorenzo can't be good for anyone.

Carly: Look, I know Lorenzo can be a difficult man, but he does have the ability to care for another person.

Courtney: Carly, please do not try and sell me on Lorenzo as a parent.

Carly: I'm not trying to sell you on him for -- as anything. All I am saying is that -- look, I think they could be good for each other. All right, he's never going to hurt Diego, and once they get used to the idea, I think that Lorenzo and Diego could connect as a family.

Sonny: You see, in my line of work -- what, you know, looks like a vacation sometimes turns out to be a business trip, and it's always a good thing to have your attorney present at all times.

Jordan: Ok. Well, I'm not going to bill you for the time that you wasted trying to convince me to go away with you. But in spite of that, it's been a pleasure, as always.

Sonny: Yeah. You know what? Give me -- in two minutes, you'll see what I'm talking about.

Jordan: Yeah, about you thinking that you need an attorney on call, I appreciate your --

[Knock on door]

Sonny: Ha! What'd I tell you? Right under the wire.

Alexis: You can send baby toys and baby clothes every day for the next year, but you are not taking my daughter on vacation.

Jax: Hey.

Diego: Hey. Thanks for coming. I know Courtney is my guardian, but I don't want to see her.

Jax: What happened?

Diego: I went back to Mar-- to my mother, and Eduardo was there, threatening her.

Jax: So you beat him up?

Diego: Well, yeah, just like he did to Maria.

Jax: So where's Eduardo now?

Diego: I don't know. He made a statement and left. He claims I attacked him for no reason.

Jax: Oh. Mac? Has anyone taken a statement from Maria Sanchez?

Mac: She told the arresting officer that Diego didn't do anything. But if you take a look at the other guy's face, you'll know that's not true.

Jax: Well, the other guy, you know, put Maria in the hospital.

Mac: Do you have any proof?

Diego: Maria told me herself.

Mac: That's hearsay, Diego. You're going to have to come up with more than that.

Jax: Well, we will, just not now. Now, what do I owe you for bail?

Lorenzo: That won't be necessary, Mr. Jacks. I'm taking responsibility for my son.

Carly: Lorenzo's lost a lot of people in his life -- his first love, his brother, Sage just a few months ago. Having a son is going to mean something to him, Courtney. He's going to want to make it work and be good.

Courtney: I don't think he's capable of being a good father.

Carly: Well, you're wrong. He is a much better person than you think.

Courtney: Carly, please tell me you're not going to go back to him.

Carly: No, I'm not.

Courtney: Are you sure? Because the way you're defending him, I mean, it just seems like --

Carly: Look, I am trying to deal with a divorce right now. The last thing I want to do is concentrate on that. It's enough for me to handle right now, ok?

Courtney: Oh, God, I'm sorry. I haven't been here for you. I mean, it just seemed like -- I don't know, it seemed like you were handling the divorce ok, you know? I mean, you supported Sonny through the custody thing. You spent the holidays with him. You agreed to be Kristinaís godmother. I --

Carly: And it's not something I wanted to do. But Sonny -- we talked about it. Look, it's not Kristinaís fault.

Courtney: What about you?

Carly: I don't know, what about me? I want to scream at Sonny sometimes. I just want to scream at him, but what good is it going to do? He's going to scream back at me, and he'll call me a liar, I'll call him a liar, and the truth is we'll both be right. And we'll still be in the same situation we're in right now. We'll still be getting divorced, and we will be furious at each other on top of it. Besides, Courtney, I don't like myself when I'm fighting with Sonny. I don't like hurting him. He doesn't like hurting me, either. I don't know, we're just -- we're trying to let go. It's just hard because there's a lot that we're still tied to.

Courtney: I didn't realize. I mean, I -- I should've known how hard this would be for you, how much you would miss him.

Carly: It's ok. It's getting better.

Steven: I'm not interested in helping you settle any old scores, John. So if you're going to go after Alcazar, you're going to do it yourself.

John: You still consult with the PCPD?

Steven: Of course I do, on occasion.

John: And that's where I need your help. I can't use the evidence myself. I've been holding on to it for too long.

Steven: Ok, you're assuming that I'm going to do this for you because if I help you get Alcazar, it's going to give me a better chance with Carly.

John: Steven, I don't want you anywhere near my daughter. She's coming out of a divorce. She needs to be alone.

Steven: And what if she wasn't coming out of a divorce?

John: I wouldn't want you within 10 miles of her.

Steven: I don't need your approval, John. I can see Carly whenever I want.

John: Yeah? You'd be making a mistake.

Steven: I'd be making a mistake? I have seen how you intimidate people. I've seen it enough, I know how you like to do it, and you're not going to do it to me. You got nothing on me.

John: What about Rachel?

Steven: Don't you dare bring her into this.

John: Have you been keeping track of her whereabouts? Well, I didn't think so, but I can't say I blame you. If I were in your shoes, I'd be hiding from her, too.

Alexis: May I suggest to you how people act in a civilized society? Usually when they make a request of another person -- say, taking her daughter on a vacation --

Sonny: She's my daughter, too.

Alexis: And I'm the custodial parent -- why wouldn't you even think to ask me if you could take her on vacation before sending her all those clothes?

Sonny: Because I wanted to surprise you.

Ric: Well, Sonny, from a legal standpoint, it could be misconstrued as being antagonistic.

Jordan: There's nothing in the custody ruling that says that Sonny can't buy his daughter clothing. But if you think that you can prove --

Sonny: Ok, wait, wait, wait. Do you want me to ask, I'll ask. May I -- may I take Kristina to the island?

Alexis: Thank you. No. You ready to go?

Sonny: See?

Jordan: There's also nothing in the custody agreement that says that Sonny can't take his daughter on vacation.

Ric: Well, considering that his island is outside of the United States, Ms. Baines, I think that makes the contract null and void.

Jordan: Well, there is a clause that makes a stipulation for foreign travel.

Ric: Oh --

Alexis: Who do you think you're talking to? Do you think that we don't know how to read a contract? You can take your stipulations and you can --

Ric: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, Alexis -- shh.

Alexis: You are not taking my daughter to a gambling casino to use as a playground.

Sonny: She'd be on the beach. She'll be collecting shells, not chips.

Alexis: No, she wonít.

Sonny: Because you say so?

Alexis: Because my daughter has other obligations that prohibit her from going.

Sonny: Bah.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Diego: Forget it. I don't want anything from you.

Emily: Relax. You don't have to pretend to be Nikolas when no one's around.

Connor: That's all right. I'm starting to like being Nikolas.

Sonny: What's so important that I can't take my daughter to the beach?

Alexis: She has an interview.

Sam: I think that this little princess needs a name.
