Jason: What are the chances that Sam and I will be able to keep the baby?

Jordan: Well, the courts favor the birth mother. The best way to keep Hope is to convince Bridget to go through with the adoption. Find someone she trusts to talk to her on your behalf.

Sam: Jason and I are getting married.

Courtney: Did you and Jason decide to go marry before or after Bridget wanted her baby back?

Sam: Before. Before. Jason wants to be with me. Courtney, you need to let go.

Courtney: I know exactly what you're doing with Jason, and it's not going to work.

Steven: If you're ready to move beyond friendship, then so am I.

Carly: Oh, I'm sorry. I am so sorry. This is not fair. I'm not ready for anything. I -- oh, there is too much going on in my head right now, too much else.

Steven: You mean there's someone else. This is about Lorenzo Alcazar, isn't it?

Emily: What happened?

Connor: Nothing, nothing. Don't worry about it.

Emily: You just blew up, Connor. You threw that plate.

Connor: Just let it go, Emily!

Emily: Well, I can't! You're out of control.

Jason: Bridget's been living on the street. So there's only one person I can think of that she trusts, and that would be my ex-wife, Courtney. She runs a foundation for kids who have no place to go. She's the one who gave Bridget a place to live.

Jordan: Are you sure it's over between you and Courtney?

Jason: Yeah.

Jordan: Does she feel the same way?

Jason: She was kind of upset when she realized Sam and I were together.

Jordan: But is it possible that she's manipulating the situation, encouraging Bridget to reclaim the baby in hopes that maybe you and Ms. McCall split up?

Jason: No, I don't think so.

Jordan: Good. Then maybe she'll lobby Bridget on your behalf. Courtney might be the best way for you to keep the baby.

Courtney: You're playing on Jasonís sympathy. More than anything, he feels sorry for you.

Sam: No, Jason wants to be with me, and taking Hope away is not going to change that.

Courtney: All right, look, I had nothing to do with Bridget backing out of the adoption.

Sam: I can't believe you're still going to deny it. Bridget was sure about giving us Hope until she moved in here with you.

Courtney: Well, she changed her mind. She has that right.

Sam: She can't care for Hope, Courtney.

Courtney: Are you sure you can?

Sam: Is that what you told her, that I wasn't fit to be a mother?

Courtney: Oh, come on, I never said one word against you, all right? Bridget barely knows you. It is perfectly reasonable that she would have second thoughts.

Sam: And you encouraged her, didn't you? I mean, you would do anything to get Jason back. That's how it is, right?

Courtney: Wow. You know, you don't know anything about my marriage to Jason.

Sam: Actually, I do. I mean, I know that you left him. I know that you promised that you would be able to accept him, his life, the chances he took, and then you backed out. I know that much.

Courtney: That doesn't mean that I didn't love him.

Sam: All I'm trying to say here is that Jason and I have a chance to be happy if you would please stop interfering.

Carly: Look, Lorenzo realized that I tampered with the D.N.A. results so he wouldn't be implicated in Mary Bishop's murder, and he thinks that that proves that I still care about him.

Steven: Do you?

Carly: Look, what Lorenzo and I had was complicated. He wouldn't take no for an answer.

Steven: I can relate.

Carly: You know, but even so, he genuinely loved me in his own way, and the things between us were never really resolved.

Steven: So are you still interested in him?

Carly: Look, I don't want to revisit it, but it's not fair for me to use you as a distraction, either.

Steven: Forget about Alcazar. Just pay attention to what's going on between me and you.

Dillon: Hey, Skye. I was kind of hoping you'd come by. Have you talked to Luke?

Skye: He hasn't found Helena yet.

Dillon: Ok, well, I've been dodging Alan and Monicaís questions, and they're getting harder. They're really worried about Emily.

Skye: All right, listen, I'll talk to Alan, ok? We just need to give Luke more time.

Dillon: Skye? I'm worried, too.

Skye: Yeah, well, Emilyís with Connor. As long as he's with her, Emily should be safe.

Emily: I can't blame you for being frustrated. Ever since you got back from the war, your whole life has been turned upside down.

Connor: And there ain't nothing I can do about that.

Emily: You're on overload, Connor. Your wife died, you were on the run, and then I asked you to impersonate Nikolas to lure Helena out of hiding.

Connor: I chose to help you.

Emily: Ok, no, you chose to go to Canada to start a new life. I'm the one who dragged you all the way back here; got you involved in this whole painful mess. It was selfish.

Connor: Emily, Emily, I wanted to help you. I still do, but you need to start being realistic here.

Emily: What do you mean?

Connor: Nikolas is in prison. We haven't been able to get him out.

Emily: He's going to be exonerated. Helena's alive, and once the police see that, then Nikolas is going to be released.

Connor: He may not be around long enough to get cleared. You know what I'm saying?

Emily: I don't even want to think about Nikolas being hurt in prison.

Connor: Hurt? He could get killed. And then what are you going to do? You going to stay faithful to a ghost, or are you going to move on with who's right in front of you?

Emily: If the worst happened and Nikolas died, I would mourn him and I would move on someday, but not with you.

Connor: You may think that now, you know, but --

Emily: No, Connor, I know it. Just because you look like Nikolas doesn't mean Iím ever going to love you.

Connor: But we're the same, you know? I mean, you taught me to be Nikolas. I even fooled his grandmother.

Emily: You're playing a role.

Connor: So I know how I feel.

Emily: And so do I. And I'm not in love with you. When I look at you, I don't feel anything. When I think about Nikolas, I can almost feel his heart beating against mine. I miss the way he holds me. There's no substitute for that. I don't want to replace it, not ever.

Connor: You're right, I'm sorry. I -- I guess just the pressure of all this is getting to me, you know? Just hiding out, waiting for Helena to find us. I'm sorry. I didn't mean to make you uncomfortable.

Emily: Oh, God. Skye. Is there any news about Nikolas?

Dillon: I am so getting into this uniform right now.

Georgie: Well, you know, if I don't actually get some dirt on it soon, my dad's going to get very, very suspicious.

Dillon: Huh. You know, I think I can help you with that, actually.

Brook Lynn: Hey, guys, I need your help.

Dillon: Hi, Brook.

Brook Lynn: Hi.

Dillon: How are you? Didn't know you had a rehearsal today.

Brook Lynn: No, I donít. I'm actually supposed to have this interview here.

Georgie: Really? For what?

Brook Lynn: Hartley College of Music.

Georgie: Oh my gosh, that's great. That's, like, getting into the best music school in the country. That's like getting into Harvard.

Brook Lynn: Right, thanks. Look, I'm blowing it off, right? I have more important things to do.

Dillon: You -- you have more important things to do than getting into the greatest school in your craft?

Brook Lynn: Hello. I already have a record deal.

Dillon: Yeah, and classical training is going to make you even better in the long run.

Brook Lynn: Right, look, Dillon, I'm sorry, I don't have time to deal with this -- I can't, not while Diego is stuck in Mexico.

Georgie: Wait a minute, wait a minute. You're giving up a chance to go to Hartley for Diego?

Brook Lynn: I'm sorry, wasn't it you that completely tanked your grades so Dillon would think you were danger girl?

Georgie: Which was stupid.

Brook Lynn: Right.

Georgie: Yeah, and I get that now.

Dillon: Ok, Brook, think about it this way -- if Diego were here, he wouldn't want you to miss the audition. We're talking about the opportunity of a lifetime for you.

Brook Lynn: Hey, Uncle Dillon, somebody else's life, all right? Look, I'm so over doing what everybody expects me to do. This is my life.

Dillon: You're not going to think long term at all?

Brook Lynn: Look, the interviewer guy, he's already on his way, ok? When he gets here, just tell him Iím not interested. No, no, no, wait, wait, wait. Better yet, tell him you don't know where I am, ok? Thanks. I'm not talking to the guy.

Dillon: Oh, ho-ho!

Georgie: No, no, no, no. You've got to be kidding me. Diego has half a brain cell, then there's Lucas, who's smart, nice, he's good-looking -- the point is Brook Lynn is being very, very stupid by giving up this interview --

Dillon: I know, I know.

Georgie: For Diego!

Dillon: Hey, I agree with you. Which is why we're going to make sure that she gets into that school. But I need your help.

Carly: What is it exactly that you think is going on between me and you?

Steven: You care about me.

Carly: You saved my life.

Steven: No. It's a whole lot more than that. If you didn't care about me, you would not have felt compelled to tell me about your feelings for Alcazar. You would've just simply used me until I would no longer put up with it.

Carly: Oh, I see. Now I'm using you?

Steven: No, no, but you were about to. But you couldn't because you canít really hurt someone that you care about. That's why you had to confess.

Carly: Steven, you're my friend.

Steven: I know that we're friends for now. But the future --

Carly: Ok, no, all right, listen to me -- I will admit I have had a history of getting involved with men that Iím friends with, but Iím turning over a new leaf now.

Steven: Of course you are.

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Steven: You're most definitely a woman in transition.

Carly: And what is that supposed to mean?

Steven: Well, you go for guys on the wrong side of the law -- Sonny, Alcazar, Jason for a little bit.

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Steven: And now that your marriage has split up, for you to go back with Alcazar, it would just be so -- be so familiar.

Carly: Oh, you don't know.

Steven: All right, then, maybe you've realized the value of pursuing someone who's not constantly on the verge of being arrested.

Carly: See, Iím not pursuing anyone. That is the whole point here.

Steven: What's happening, Carly, is bigger than the both of us. You're fighting yourself for no good reason. Why keep fighting?

Courtney: If we're going to be honest, why don't you start? Admit Jason is nothing but your latest scam.

Sam: No, what Jason and I feel for each other is real.

Courtney: So you're saying you've changed, Sam? I mean, you're not about living off other people, looking for your next mark, an easy score?

Sam: I don't have to listen --

Courtney: Oh, the hell you donít. You have been manipulating Jason for months now because you know he is loyal and generous and he won't back out once he commits to someone, even if he has to suffer for it.

Sam: Oh, trust me, Jason is not suffering.

Courtney: Wow. So you're using sex to get what you want now? Well, I don't know why Iím surprised, really. I mean, you slept with Jax to chase after some stupid treasure, right? And then you moved in on Sonny while he was still married.

Sam: What Jason and I have is more than sex.

Courtney: Yeah, it was supposed to be about a baby, ok? That's how you roped him in. Well, your little girl is gone now, Sam, and there is no way Iím going to let you use an innocent child to trap Jason in some marriage of convenience.

Jason: Courtney, that's enough.  Let's go, Sam. We're leaving.

Courtney: Jason, wait. Just let me explain.

Jason: This is a bad time, Courtney.

Courtney: She accused me of sabotaging the adoption, all right, and I lost my temper, I'm sorry.

Jason: So you accuse her of using her child? She loved that little girl. So did I.

Man: Tell me more about that song you submitted with your application.

Georgie: Right. All my music is very personal to me.

Man: In your essay, you said the lyrics were written by a peer.

Georgie: Right. Sage. She died recently. She was very, very young.

Man: Is that why you decided to set her poem to music?

Georgie: Look, I've always thought of music as a way of revealing a hidden part of myself, you know? It's always given me the courage to say things I wouldn't normally say.

Man: That's very interesting.

Georgie: Sage was nothing like the girl in the song, or at least that's what I saw on the outside. But after I read the poem, I realized she was just like the rest of us, you know, afraid to be honest. So putting her poem to music helped me realize more about myself.

Man: What made you go with the X-A-X-A format?

Georgie: X-A-- right. I --

Dillon: You know, actually, didn't Simon try to make --

Man: This is a private interview.

Dillon: Yeah, no, I know. I do work here, though, and I'm telling you, she's really passionate about her music, but this Simon guy --

Man: Who's Simon?

Georgie: I'm supposed to do a C.D. for him.

Dillon: He tried to change her whole image around, you know, make her into, like, a pop diva.

Georgie: But I'm not interested in selling an image, you know? I like the song the way I wrote it.

Man: So do I. But a lot of artists your age would have been swayed by the chance of early stardom -- money, touring --

Dillon: Well, you know, Brook's no sell-out.

Georgie: No, I want to stay true to my music.

Man: That's exactly the kind of integrity we're looking for at Hartley.

Dillon: So she's in?

Man: No, I still need to hear Brook sing.

Georgie: But you heard my C.D.

Man: I'm talking about a live audition, here and now.

Lorenzo: Hello.

Brook Lynn: Hi. Thank you for meeting me.

Lorenzo: Please sit. This is about your mother?

Brook Lynn: Actually, no. It's about Diego.

Lorenzo: Oh. You really miss him?

Brook Lynn: Yes, and I think he misses me, too. You know, I got an email from him today.

Lorenzo: Did he sound happy?

Brook Lynn: No, not at all. I mean, he's trying to work things out with Maria, but they've been apart for so long, you know?

Lorenzo: Yeah.

Brook Lynn: Plus, he found out that she just lied to him about everything, so --

Lorenzo: She was in an impossible situation. I think she did the best she could.

Brook Lynn: So are you telling me that you don't hate her for keeping your son a secret?

Lorenzo: I wish she'd made different choices.

Brook Lynn: Right.

Lorenzo: I would've provided for Diego if Iíd been given the chance.

Brook Lynn: Right, I know that, and I keep trying to explain it to Diego, but he won't listen. Listen, I think that I could really get through to him if he came back to Port Charles.

Lorenzo: No, he won't as long as Iím here.

Brook Lynn: I know, because he thinks that you don't want him for your son, you know? But I know that's not the case.

Lorenzo: Look, he's angry. It's understandable.

Brook Lynn: You've talked to him before. Maybe you should do it again. I mean, God, one of you has to make the first move, so -

Lorenzo: I've done all I can.

Brook Lynn: I'm sorry, that's not true, Mr. Alcazar. All right, you're rich. You could be in Mexico by tonight if you wanted. So why don't you go, go, just talk to him, all right? Then bring him back. Try and start a relationship.

Lorenzo: I don't want to force Diego. I barely know him.

Brook Lynn: Well, I know him.

Lorenzo: Tell me about him.

Carly: Hey.

Courtney: I need help.

Carly: What happened?

Courtney: Bridget decided that she wants to take her baby back, and now Sam blames me. She thinks that I'm trying to break her and Jason up by stopping the adoption.

Carly: That's insane.

Courtney: But what if she's right?

Skye: Is everything ok here?

Connor: Yeah, yeah. We were hoping for some good news.

Emily: Has Luke found Helena?

Skye: No, not yet, but he has a lead.

Connor: Good.

Emily: Can you give us any details? Is she in the United States?

Skye: Uh, Connor, do you think that you could get me something hot to drink? I could really go for that.

Connor: Sure.

Skye: Emily, are you ok?

Emily: Yeah, we both just want to get out of here as soon as possible.

Skye: Yeah. The family's really starting to worry about you.

Emily: Oh, what have you told them?

Skye: Well, not much. They know you're safe. And poor Dillon is covering like crazy for you.

Emily: Oh, God, I can't thank you guys enough.

Skye: Oh, Emily, please, how could I not help you? I haven't seen true love many times in my life, and you and Nikolas --

Emily: The real thing, huh?

Skye: Yeah. That is why we have to catch Helena. You two deserve to spend a long, happy life together.

Emily: And we will. This is all going to be over soon.

Skye: Well, you know, Connor must be pretty upsetting, though. I mean, he looks exactly like Nikolas.

Emily: Oh, no, no, no, Connor and Nikolas couldn't be less alike.

Skye: Yeah. He seems kind of volatile.

Emily: Yeah, I don't know.

Skye: Emily, you don't feel safe around Connor, do you?

Emily: If it's a choice between getting stuck with Helena or Connor, I'd choose Connor any day.

Skye: That's not very encouraging. Helena's a homicidal maniac.

Emily: Listen, Nikolas is her weakness, and she's not sure who Connor is right now, so it's going to buy us some time.

Skye: Emily, tell me the truth -- is Connor making you feel uncomfortable?

Emily: Uh, you know, we've had some awkward moments.

Skye: Oh, ok, that's it. We're getting you out of here and we're going to hide you guys separately.

Emily: No, wait, Skye, I appreciate your being protective, but I'm ok.

Skye: I wish I believed you.

Emily: Listen, the situation has been hard on all of us. You know, Connorís still grieving for his wife and he's given up his whole identity to impersonate Nikolas. I mean, sometimes he gets frustrated, but how can you blame him?

Skye: So you're just going to grin and bear it?

Emily: Listen, to bring Nikolas back, I'd do just about anything.

Skye: Well, what should I tell the family in the meantime?

Emily: Just tell them that I love them and that Iím trying to prove Nikolas' innocence and tell them that Iím safe and that Iím going to be home soon.

Skye: Ok. Well, until you are, I have something that should make you very happy.

Emily: What?

Skye: This just arrived today.

Emily: Oh, it's from Nikolas.

Georgie: La, la, la, la la, la, la

Dillon: Wow, you know, I just -- I can't find your backup music at all.

Man: That's fine. Brook can sing a cappella.

Georgie: Oh.

Man: I'd rather hear your raw voice, anyway.

Georgie: Ok, great.

Dillon: Well, then we should -- um, ok. Let's just set this up. I'm not going to let you do this.

Georgie: You're not?

Dillon: No.

Man: The audition is an important part of the application process.

Dillon: Yes, but you -- you don't want her losing her voice.

Man: I'm not sure I understand.

Dillon: Well, Brook here has a throat infection. Strep, actually. The doctor said that she shouldn't even be talking, let alone singing, you know. I mean, and you cannot risk permanent damage to your vocal cords no matter much you want to go to this school.

Man: I agree. You should have said something earlier.

Georgie: I just really want to get in.

Man: Well, judging from your C.D. and the interview, a live audition would be a formality.

Dillon: So she doesn't have to sing?

Man: I'll arrange for Brook to audition at the school when she's better. Unfortunately, I won't be present, but the admissions board will.

Dillon: Oh, so that means --

Man: I'm including her on the early admission list.

Dillon: Thank you!

Georgie: Thank you!

Dillon: Thank you so --

Georgie: I mean --

Dillon: Thank you.

Georgie: This rocks. Thanks.

Dillon: Take -- bye! Perfect, perfect, perfect!

Georgie: Could you have imagined what would've happened if I started to sing?

Dillon: Well, let's thank God you didn't.

Georgie: She's going to be happy about this, right?

Dillon: Yeah, it's, like, the opportunity of a lifetime.

Brook Lynn: I get this feeling around Diego that there's this person underneath all the attitude that's never been given a chance, right? I mean, look, I know he can't trust a lot of people, but once he can count on you, my God, Diego is so loyal, all right? He will never turn his back on you, not ever. I'm serious. Look, let's take what happened to Maria as an example.

Lorenzo: Well, he's very protective of her.

Brook Lynn: Yeah, that's true, because he's strong and he's passionate about things that he cares about, and I honestly believe that he has a lot of love to give. I'm sorry. I know. I sound like a complete idiot right now.

Lorenzo: No, no, no. Not at all.

Brook Lynn: So, are you saying that you're going to ask him to come back?

Lorenzo: I'm going to do you a favor instead. I'm going to warn you about Diego the way people warned your mother about me. Now, Diego may seem like this deep, brooding knight, but he's really just an angry young man with an ax to grind.

Brook Lynn: No. No. Look, I'm serious, that is not true.

Lorenzo: It doesn't make him a bad person. It's a fact. And you may try to bring out whatever you imagine is inside of him to save him. You canít. Life has decided who Diego is, and it is out of even his hands. Brook Lynn, I think you'd be better off with someone else.

Brook Lynn: You know what, thank you, but that is absolutely not your call to make. Just so we're clear, I am not walking away from Diego, ok? Not now and not ever.

Sam: Seriously --

Jason: We're back!

Sam: Are we going to talk about this?

Jason: Ok, why'd you go over Courtneyís?

Sam: Because I think she's the reason Bridget changed her mind.

Jason: Why?

Sam: You heard her, Jason. She thinks we're together for the baby, and she thinks that if Bridget takes the baby back, then we're not going to be together anymore and she's going to have another chance with you, so that's --

Jason: No, I don't think that's it, Sam.

Sam: Well, I disagree. She is still in love with you. She thinks I am not good enough for you. She lost her temper. So did I. I'm sorry you had to walk in on that, but I am not sorry I went over there. So what if it got ugly?

Jason: Sam, we can't push Courtney anymore. We need her help to adopt Hope.

Courtney: I keep thinking about all the talks that Iíve had with Bridget in the loft, you know, how I've encouraged her to change her life and --

Carly: That's why you started the foundation.

Courtney: Yeah, but what if I accidentally said something that made Bridget think she should take her baby back?

Carly: She's the birth mother. She has rights.

Courtney: It's just Sam thinks that I influenced her, you know, and Bridget was sure about the adoption until she came to live with me, so Samís convinced that I changed her mind.

Carly: Did you talk to Bridget about taking the baby back?

Courtney: No, never.

Carly: All right, when she came to you and said she wanted Hope and she wanted to raise her, what'd you say?

Courtney: I tried to discourage her. I did. I mean, I want Bridget to try and have a life of her own before she tries to be a mother.

Carly: That is good advice.

Courtney: Yeah, but maybe -- maybe I could've pushed Bridget harder to go through with the adoption. I don't --

Carly: Courtney, it's Bridgetís decision.

Courtney: It's just Sam thinks that I'm trying to break her and Jason up.

Carly: Listen, Sam thinks that Jason was going to lose interest in her if she doesn't have a baby for him to take care of.

Courtney: No, Carly, it's for real. They're together for real.

Carly: No, no, it's for now.

Courtney: Jason told Sam that he loves her, Carly. They're getting married. Yeah. Then Sam threw it in my face, and something inside me just snapped and I -- oh, God. I went off. I accused her of manipulating Jason with an innocent child and using sex to keep him and -- Jason heard everything.

Carly: Not good.

Courtney: He was furious, Carly. You know, and after what I said, you know, I wouldn't be surprised if Jason thinks that Iím manipulating Bridget, too.

Carly: No, Jason knows better.

Courtney: I'm not so sure. God, I have just messed everything up, and it keeps getting worse. I don't know how to fix it.

Carly: Sweetie, oh, come here, come here. Come here, come here. Stop. Don't be so hard on yourself. Really, it's going to be ok. It'll work itself out.

Courtney: Yeah. Thanks, Carly. God, you know what, I'm sorry, but I have to get back to Bridget.

Carly: You sure?

Courtney: Yeah, I'm ok. I'll call you later, ok?

Carly: Ok. Hi. I need to see you.

Lorenzo: Just say when.

Carly: Hi. No, it's ok. Hi.

Lorenzo: Hi. I'll admit I was surprised to hear from you so soon.

Carly: Yeah, well, I need a favor.

Lorenzo: Ask.

Carly: Jason and Sam are trying to adopt the baby that you helped deliver at Kellyís, and the mother, Bridget, had decided she felt that she wasn't able to raise this child, but she felt good knowing that the baby would go to a good home. But she had a year to change her mind, and apparently she didn't even need that long.

Lorenzo: She's already reconsidered?

Carly: She stopped the adoption.

Lorenzo: She wouldn't even look at her daughter the night she was born.

Carly: Well, things have changed, gotten a little bit better. Courtney helped her, got her off the streets, got her a job.

Lorenzo: Hmm, maybe she'll turn out to be a decent mother after all.

Carly: She's a kid. You know she can't possibly take care of this child on her own. And anyway, Jasonís become very attached, and he would be a great father.

Lorenzo: What does all this have to do with me?

Carly: Look, I would've gone to Jason and told him to talk to Bridget, but he doesn't really have a relationship with her. You do since you helped deliver her baby, and I just thought that you may have some influence over her.

Lorenzo: Ah. In other words, you want me to help Jason.

Jason: There is no legal way to force Bridget to let us adopt Hope. The best we can get is protective custody, and that's even if we could prove that Bridget is unfit to raise this baby.

Sam: Oh, come on, Jason, that shouldn't be hard. She gave birth in a diner, she's on drugs -- or was on drugs -- she's practically homeless.

Jason: Sam, that's not the problem. If we go to court, they're going to evaluate us as parents. I've never been convicted, but, you know, I have multiple arrests, I have been hospitalized for a gunshot wound -- the list just goes on.

Sam: I know, I have arrests too, but Jason, if Jordan was good enough to get Sonny custody, I think she might be good enough to do something for us.

Jason: Jordan already has a plan, but it doesn't involve going to court.

Sam: I don't understand.

Jason: We need Bridget to change her mind and to agree to the adoption. The problem is she doesn't -- she doesn't really know us.

Sam: I don't think she knows anyone in town, Jason.

Jason: Well, yes, she does, and she trusts Courtney.

Sam: Courtney, yeah, who talked her out of giving us the baby in the first place.

Jason: Sam, you got to stop with that.

Sam: No, no, Jason, I know you want to think the best of Courtney, but she is not herself right now. You're moving on with your life, you're getting married, she's freaking out.

Jason: Ok, but --

Sam: Don't you realize that?

Jason: Maybe she is a little bit, but she wouldn't hurt a child and she knows that Hope is better off with us than with Bridget.

Sam: Ok, so you want us to ask Courtney for help?

Jason: I think it's our best chance at keeping this baby.

Brook Lynn: Look, guys, please, I just want to be alone.

Dillon: Ok. Fine. You might change your mind, however, once you hear the news we have for you.

Brook Lynn: What are you talking about, Dillon?

Dillon: We -- got you into Hartley.

Brook Lynn: Guys, I didn't make the interview.

Dillon: Aha.

Georgie: I stood in for you.

Dillon: Yes, she did, and she completely articulated everything that you feel about music. It was amazing.

Brook Lynn: Dillon, hello? I told you I didn't want to go.

Dillon: No, you said that you had other things you had to take care of today, so we handled the interview for you.

Georgie: Of course, I couldn't do the live audition.

Dillon: It doesn't matter. They're going to set up something on campus that you can go to at a later time.

Georgie: Right, and the guy who did the audition isn't even going to be there, so they won't even know you didn't make the preliminary audition.

Dillon: And you know what, it wouldn't even mater if they did because once they hear you sing, you're in. Brook, that's what we're saying -- you're in, ok? Come fall, you're going to have a whole new life.

Brook Lynn: Look, thank you, but it won't be because I'm going to go to college. I'm going to be in Mexico with Diego.

Nikolas' voice: "Emily, I can't stop thinking about you and the times we shared together. I remember the time we made love in front of the fire and promised we'd always come back to each other. Then later we ate strawberries dipped in champagne. It was heaven. I can feel you in my arms right now and smell the rose petals in your hair. I miss you so much, Emily. But we're together in these memories, so I hold on to them. Remember with me, Emily."

Connor: Skye leave yet?

Emily: Yes.

Connor: I figured you'd go with her.

Emily: Well, I have to stay here until Luke finds Helena.

Connor: So that means you're stuck with me?

Emily: Listen, I know it's difficult, but what Nikolas is going through is a million times worse. So, I'm going to go rest.

Emily: The strawberries are so sweet.

Connor: I'm glad you like them.

Emily: I like everything about tonight. Make love to me, Connor.

Sam: You know, if Courtney is our best chance to keep Hope, we are going to have to ask for help, Jason. I am just not sure she's going to give it to us.

Jason: Well, all we can do is ask.

Sam: Are you mad at me for going over there?

Jason: I understand. I just wish you hadn't.

Sam: I'm just -- I'm really sorry. I didn't know what to do. I thought maybe if she knew that we were getting married that she would back off or --

Jason: I know you're scared. And I know that you already love Hope and you don't want to lose her. You know, fear makes it hard to think clearly, but the best way to fight for hope is to stay calm.

Sam: Like you?

Jason: I'm trying.

Sam: Ok. Ok, from now on, we'll do it your way.

Jason: Then Iím going to call Courtney.

[Phone rings]

Courtney: Hello?

Jason: I need to see you.

Lorenzo: Jason tried to kill me more than once, and you want me to help him adopt a child? On top of which, I just found out I have a child of my own whom I may have wanted to raise myself.

Carly: Look, all I'm asking you to do is encourage Bridget to do the right thing. Hope will be better off with Jason and Sam.

Lorenzo: You hate Sam McCall.

Carly: Yes, I do. But Jason cares about her. He may even love her. He's lost a lot already in his life. He had to give up Michael when he was a baby, and I don't think he's ever gotten over it.

Lorenzo: Why do you feel obligated to make this all better for him?

Carly: Because I owe him, more than I can explain to you. And I love him enough to ask you for help. So will you talk to Bridget for me?

Lorenzo: Hmm. This would be a lot easier if I didn't have guilt over my own child. But I could never refuse you anything.

Carly: Thank you.

Skye: Listen, all I can tell you is that Emily is safe and that she doesn't want you to worry about her.

Monica: Well, that's easy for you to say.

Alan: Look, Skye, I know that you mean well, but Monica and I would feel better if we spoke to Emily ourselves.

Monica: I mean, she's pregnant. She should be taking care of herself.

Skye: I'm sorry, Monica. Emily's not really pregnant.

Monica: What?

Skye: She was just using it as a lure to get Helena out of hiding.

Alan: Helena's dead.

Skye: No, Helenaís alive, and she was at the house the other night. Luke almost captured her.

Alan: How the hell did Luke get involved in this?

Monica: Did Helena try to hurt Emily?

Skye: She didn't have the chance. Now, listen, I know this is hard, but this is the way that Emily wants it.

Monica: Wait a minute. Does anyone else know that Helena is alive?

Skye: No, we're keeping it very quiet until Luke closes in on her.

Monica: Excuse me, but do you expect me to trust my daughter's safety to Luke Spencer? She should be under police protection. Her life is in danger!

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Jordan: You can make your new house Kristinaís new home.

Emily: Did you read my letter?

Carly: We're going to need to find a way to deal with each other.

Jason: Thanks for meeting me.

Courtney: There's something I need to say to you.

Bridget: Courtney's not here.

Lorenzo: Actually, I came to see you.
