Jax: Step, step. Oh, wait, wait, wait.

Courtney: What?

Jax: Maybe I should carry you across the threshold.

Courtney: We're not married yet.

Jax: Yeah, but we will be soon. We're going to make each other very, very happy.

Jane: Celebrating the engagement, are we?

Jax: Mom.

Courtney: Dad?

Alexis: You think I kidnapped my own daughter?

Ric: You've done it before.

Alexis: And that's why you're not calling the police?

Ric: Look, I know how you feel about sharing Kristina with Sonny. Now, if she were kidnapped under his supervision, you would have the perfect opportunity to file for sole custody.

Alexis: Do you realize that every moment you waste the worse the chances of getting her back? I want the police here. Why do I want them here if I kidnapped her?

Ric: I know you, Alexis. I know how determined you are. I know -- I know what you're willing to do in order to protect Kristina. Maybe you are willing to take that risk.

Sonny: Why didn't you tell me Sam lied about going to Miami? Are you trying to protect her?

Jason: I didn't tell you because I didn't think it mattered.

Sonny: What are you trying to hide? Did Sam kidnap Kristina?

Woman: I'm impressed. It's hard to access this much money.

Sam: Yeah, well, the man I got it from owed me, and he can afford to pay.

Jax: I just proposed to Courtney tonight. How could you possibly -- of course -- Norwood James, the jeweler who sold me your ring. My family has patronized his shop for years.

Jane: Well, he called to congratulate me on your engagement, and needless to say, I was a bit taken by surprise.

Jax: Well, I wasn't going to say anything until Courtney accepted.

Jane: Well, I assumed the ring was for Courtney. That's why I jumped on the first flight to Port Charles.

Mike: When Jane called me when she landed, we decided it was best if we spoke to you together.

Jax: Oh.

Courtney: About what?

Mike: This marriage would be a mistake for both of you.

Michael: Do you think Kristina was scared?

Carly: Oh, I hope not, sweetie. I think that Kristina may be just a little too young to know what's going on.

Michael: I never should have left her in that room while she was sleeping.

Carly: Oh, Michael. You are the best big brother that anyone could hope for, ok? But it is not your job to keep Kristina safe.

Michael: Do you think we'll ever get her back?

Carly: Come here. Yes, I do, ok? And your dad is going to -- we're going to bring her home soon.

Ric: Alexis, it's just the two of us, all right? Please, just tell me the truth so I can find a way to protect you.

Alexis: I don't need you to protect me. I need you to --

Ric: Why would you bring Kristina to Sonny's in the middle of the week?

Alexis: Why did you kidnap Carly when she was pregnant? Just because you think like a criminal, you think we all think like criminals?

Ric: Ok, all right, there's my point right there. I wasn't thinking rationally, all right? I was out of my mind, but I was still capable of planning a kidnapping and finding a way to cover my tracks. See, that's how I know it can be done.

Alexis: So you're out of your mind, so we're all out of our minds?

Ric: I am trying to protect you! Now, nothing is irrevocable at this point.

Alexis: What's irrevocable is my daughter's been kidnapped. Why are we having this conversation?

Ric: We're having this conversation because it's too perfect to be a coincidence, all right? Kristina is kidnapped from Sonny while under his supervision. You are mysteriously absent. You are not -- repeat -- are not at the apartment with me. You're not at the law library like you said you were going to be. You are supposedly shopping for lingerie. Ok, did anybody see you?

Alexis: Salesgirl.

Ric: Do you remember her name?

Alexis: My daughter has been kidnapped.

Ric: I know that and, Alexis, we are wasting valuable time here. Please, just tell me the truth. Do you know where Kristina is? Did you put her someplace safe, knowing that Sonny would be blamed and then you would get sole custody after she was returned?

Alexis: I hate doing this. You know very well I would never do like that to my daughter.

Ric: Alexis, it's happened twice before. Please, the stakes are much higher at this point.

Alexis: I'm not wasting another minute defending myself to someone who should already believe me. Do you have any evidence that I did what you're suggesting?

Ric: You had motive, you had means, and you had the opportunity, all right? We weren't living together. You had all the time in the world to set this thing up.

Alexis: That's hardly evidence.

Ric: Alexis, please, I know you. Trust me enough to tell me the truth.

Alexis: You want to help me? Find my daughter!

Jason: Sam didn't take Kristina.

Sonny: How do you know?

Jason: Because she wouldnít.

Sonny: She lied about going to Miami.

Jason: Yeah, she lied to get away from me.

Sonny: Right.

Jason: I hurt her, she's mad, she feels betrayed, I kept showing up trying to fix things, she asked me to back off, I didn't, she lied to make me stop.

Sonny: Do you hear what you just said? She feels angry and betrayed. What does that say to you?

Jason: She's angry at me, Sonny, not you. Come on, she's got no motive to take Kristina. This is ridiculous.

Sonny: How about Kristinaís life because of Samís baby? She ever talk to you about that?

Jason: Yes, she does.

Sonny: Mm-hmm, show interest in Kristina? She used to visit her at the hospital.

Jason: Yeah, absolutely. She cares about Kristina. Why the hell would she kidnap her if she cares about Kristina?

Sonny: Postpartum depression. You ever hear about -- you know what that is?

Jason: Yeah, I know what that is, Sonny.

Sonny: Right. Right. Carly had it after Michael was born.

Jason: Right.

Sonny: How did she act?

Jason: Not like Sam. She couldn't even hold Michael. She couldn't even touch Michael. Sam is missing her baby. She's grieving. She's not crazy.

Sonny: You're not offering much in the way of, you know, proof.

Jason: Proof? What, you have proof that Sam did it besides her saying that she was going to Miami and she's not going to Miami? Whoever really kidnapped Kristina did it probably to get back at you, Sonny.

Sonny: Oh, so now you're saying that, you know, I endangered my own child?

Jason: No, I'm not saying that. I'm saying that Kristina was taken the exact same time that you had to shut the power down because the state-of-the-art security system doesn't work, and she was taken from your bedroom. What are the odds that Kristina would even be in your bedroom, and how would Sam even know that? She has been here two times. One time before the place was furnished, I brought here, then she came here to see you that one time. Did you take her around the house? Was she outside of this room at all?

Sonny: No.

Jason: Well, then she doesn't know the layout of the house very well. Besides, if she was going to take Kristina, why would she put the ladder at your window and not Kristinaís window?

Sonny: You would say anything to defend her. That's what's going on here.

Jason: Sonny -- I mean, we can waste all day arguing whether Sam did it or didn't do it. We need to look at the people who've been giving us trouble lately. The people in the Caribbean, at the casinos, somebody here in Port Charles. You know what this is? This is one of three things. This is revenge, it's a power grab, or it's ransom.

Sonny: So you won't even consider the possibility that Sam, a known thief who's grieving for two children, lied about where she was, could have done it? You know what that says to me? You're thinking with your heart. But my child is missing, and I need to be able to trust your judgment. And right now I canít.


Courtney: You can't honestly think we're going to cancel our engagement just because our parents disapprove?

Jane: Well, I'm hoping you'll do it to save each other a lot of pain.

Jax: But we're happy, and we intend to stay that way.

Mike: But this isn't real happiness. Honey, you and Jax are completely wrong for each other.

Courtney: Oh, wow. Really? You know, you must be very persuasive, Mrs. Jacks, to convince my own father that I'm not good enough for Jax.

Jane: I have nothing against you personally.

Courtney: Your son just asked me to marry him. How much more personal does it get?

Jane: Jax is in love with the idea of love. Just take a look at his track record.

Jax: Ok, you know what? Mom, I understand that this is a tough time for you with Dad being gone, ok, and you're focusing your attention on me, which I understand, but I will not let you reduce my engagement to Courtney to some kind of defect in my character.

Jane: No, I wouldn't call it a defect. Actually, it's quite charming. But your compulsion to save women in need should not result in yet another marriage.

Courtney: Excuse me. I am -- I'm not a woman in need.

Mike: Well, you could have fooled me.

Courtney: What are you talking about?

Mike: Your last two husbands ground you up pretty good. You are searching for happily ever after.

Jax: That's right, Mike, and I intend to give it to her.

Jane: You're not capable of it, Jax. Don't you know that about yourself?

Jax: Ok, you know what, Mom? You need to stop, ok, because I can only tolerate so much of this.

Jane: Look, as a boy, you would save up for a toy, you would get it, play with it for a day, and then discard it and move on to something else. As a businessperson, you acquire companies, then you sell them off as fast as you can. It's in your nature. Oh, you want things badly, but then you don't want them for very long.

Jax: Courtney is not a thing! She's the woman I'm going to spend the rest of my life with.

Jane: Oh, that is a lovely concept, dear.

Courtney: All right, Jax and I have decided to get married. We would love for both of you to be a part of that. It would make a happy occasion even happier.

Jax: Right.

Courtney: But our decision has been made. This wedding is going to happen with or without you.

Michael: Do you think anyone's going to kidnap Morgan or me?

Carly: No, sweetie, no one's going to kidnap Morgan or you, and -- you want to know why?

Michael: Why?

Carly: Because I'm not going to let you out of my sight until you're about 30 years old.

Michael: But, Mom, that's just plain weird.

Carly: Well, ok, I don't care. And, you know, when you're old enough to start going on dates, you tell your girlfriend your mom's really weird, but she's going to be joining us for the evening.

Michael: Mom, I'm not going to be afraid.

Carly: That's good, sweetheart. But I need you to agree to something. It's very serious, all right? No more hiding from the guards. No more going off by yourself, even for a little while, just until we find whoever did this, whoever took Kristina. And when they're caught and they're punished, then it's ok. But until then, you need to stay close; you need to do exactly what you are told.

Michael: Ok, I can do that.

Carly: Thanks. Come here. Oh. I love you. You know that? And we're going to find Kristina, we are, and when we do, she's going to be just fine. You know what I spy?

Michael: What?

Carly: I spy your homework. How's it going? Did you get it done?

Michael: I did the science, but all I need is a little math.

Carly: Just a little?

Michael: Yes.

Carly: Ok.

Michael: Like five problems' worth.

Carly: Very good, then why don't you get to it, all right?

Michael: Ok.

Carly: Ok. Michael, just wait one sec, all right?

Michael: Ok.

Carly: Enzo, excuse me. Michael's going to be doing his homework. I'd like you to stay in his room with him.

Michael: Mom, I don't need anyone.

Carly: Sweetheart, you remember what we just talked about?

Michael: You're right. So, do you know anything about math?

Enzo: I'll call someone else to watch the door.

Diego: Sonny's keeping us here because he thinks we kidnapped Kristina?

Brook Lynn: It makes sense, Diego, it does. I mean, I was babysitting her when she was taken, and he probably thinks that the kidnapper paid me off.

Diego: No, no, no. Listen, there's no reason for you to take blame for this.

Brook Lynn: God, like, I can't help it, I canít.

Diego: Ok, ok.

Brook Lynn: No, Diego, if I hadn't have left the room, Kristina would still be in the bed right now.

Diego: Oh, ok. What were you supposed to do? What were you supposed to do, stand and watch her sleep all night?

Brook Lynn: Look, I don't know, I don't know, but she was my responsibility, ok? I promised Sonny and I promised Alexis that I would watch her.

Diego: Yes, ok, but it was one of Sonny's enemies that took her. There was nothing you could have done about it, ok? All right?

Brook Lynn: Ok. How's your hand? Did you wash it?

Diego: No, it's ok.

Brook Lynn: Well, I can -- you want me to take care of it?

Diego: No. Later. I can't stay here much longer.

Brook Lynn: Look, Diego, we can't leave, ok? It'll just look like we're hiding something.

Diego: Look, Sonny knows that you would never help anybody kidnap his kid. But I'm Lorenzo Alcazar's son. That's enough to make me look guilty.

Sonny: When Lily died, she was carrying my child. I was out of my mind with grief. That's what's going on with Sam maybe. You know, she lost so much, she doesn't know what she's doing.

Jason: Grief does not change who you are. Sam would never kidnap a child.

Sonny: I've done things in my life I never thought I would do. Situations come up. You convince yourself, right, that it's your only choice.

Jason: I know that you've been through a lot, but could anything drive you to kidnapping somebody's daughter?

Sonny: No. No. But I've never carried a child for nine months only to have that child die before I get a chance to see her. In Samís head, her baby, our baby, died to keep Kristina alive.

Jason: Sonny, she's past that. She understands what really happened.

Sonny: That's what she says, Jason! But maybe she feels some kind of connection with Kristina. That's probably why she kidnapped her. All I'm saying is you have to find her.

Jason: And all I'm saying is I'm going to be wasting valuable time looking for her.

Sonny: So you're saying that there's not a chance I could be right?

[Knock on door]

Stan: Guys?

Jason: What? What's going on?

Stan: The entire security system has been shadow-wired.

Jason: Are there mikes out here?

Stan: No, no, no, no, no.

Sonny: Ok, what does that mean, "shadow-wired"?

Jason: That means there's another cable running parallel to the ones with the system. It's probably sending sound and pictures from a receiver somewhere.

Sonny: Are you telling me there's hidden cameras in this house?

Stan: Whoever laid that wire knows everything you do and say.

Jason: See? Sonny, this system's too elaborate. Sam could never have done this. She is not the kidnapper.

Sonny: All right, whoever it is, they're watching me. We could use this to our advantage.

Ric: Alexis --

Alexis: Leave me alone.

Ric: No, please, just let me help you.

Alexis: By accusing me of kidnapping my own daughter?

Ric: Where are you going?

Alexis: I'd hate to see what you were going to do if you were working against me. I'm going to go kidnap my next victim, right?

Ric: Stop it, stop it, stop it. Listen to me. I want to discuss this in a rational matter.

Alexis: You know what I need from you? I need you to tell me that everything's going to be ok, but you can't because you're too busy making me a prime suspect.

Ric: Alexis, I'm not the only one who's going to put this together, huh? The longer it goes on, the more suspicious you're going to look.

Alexis: Scaring me into a confession isn't going to work because I didn't do anything wrong!

Ric: If I'm wrong -- listen to me -- if I'm wrong, I'm sorry. But if I'm right, you better stop fighting me and let me find a way to protect you. Otherwise, you're going to lose Kristina for good.

Mike: How many marriages between you -- four, five, maybe a few I don't know about?

Jax: That's irrelevant, Mike.

Mike: No, I think it is relevant.

Courtney: Dad, listen, Jax and I have learned from the past. Our eyes are open. We know what we're doing.

Mike: Courtney, you are my only daughter, and I don't want to see you hurt again.

Courtney: Dad, enough. Come on, if you don't have anything positive to say, then I think you should leave.

Mike: Jane, thank you again for calling me.

Courtney: Oh, come on, Dad -- You waited.

Mike: Look, I was about to come back in. Honey, this is a mistake, but it doesn't mean I'm going to give up on you.

Courtney: Can't you be happy for me? I mean, even just a little?

Mike: I wish I could be, princess. But even if Jax didn't have problems of his own, this marriage would still be a mistake.

Jane: You and Courtney are caught up in a fantasy romance. But you can't dazzle each other forever. Sooner or later, the truth is going to come out.

Jax: Mom, I've told you that I love Courtney, ok? How many times do I have to tell you that? And why do you keep insisting that I don't?

Jane: But even if you were committed to Courtney, I still would be against this marriage because Courtney has an enormous problem that's not going to go away.

Courtney: I am not with Jax because he's charming and rich. The truth is I did everything I could to push him away.

Mike: Yeah, yeah, and there was a reason for that.

Jane: I want you to be happy, Jax. That's why it is important that you hear this. Courtney simply does not love you.

Mike: You are still in love with Jason.

 [Knock on door]

Lorenzo: I assume this is about your playing peacemaker to Diego and me.

Carly: No, I've got some other things on my mind right now. Sonny's daughter's been kidnapped.

Lorenzo: Hmm. And that's why you wanted to see me?

Carly: Well, Kristina was taken from Sonny's new house, and Diego was caught there. Lorenzo, I need to know if you had anything to do with this.

Man: Kristina just went down for a nap.

Sonny: You're good. You wired my house. I never suspected it. Oh, you haven't contacted me, so I'm going to make the first move. I'm going to give you $5 million, any denominations, any place you want it delivered. All you got to do is return Kristina, my daughter, unharmed. I won't call the police. I won't come after you when it's done. You know where to reach me. I'll be waiting for your call. Don't take too long.

Courtney: I loved Jason with all my heart, and I will always care about him. But our time has ended, Dad. I have finally let go of him.

Mike: Honey, if I could believe that, I would be the happiest man on earth.

Courtney: It's true, ok? I'm sure of it.

Mike: Look, I have heard you say this before, but every time you're in the same room with Jason, I can see on your face how bad you still have it for him.

Courtney: My marriage to Jason left me with more questions than answers. I mean, what if he'd been in a different line of work? What if I hadn't miscarried? Shouldn't I have seen that it could have never worked between us? Those questions, Dad, those tied to me Jason because I never found the answers.

Mike: And what's different now?

Courtney: A tall, handsome man with an Australian accent who has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met. Jax is what's different, Dad. He is the answer to all my questions.

Mike: Honey, if there's one thing I know, it's running from your past. You can't do it, Courtney. It doesn't pay to try.

Courtney: I am not running away from anything. Look, I am running toward the life I have always wanted, and I'm going to find that with Jax.

Mike: The man is a player. His own mother admits it.

Courtney: Oh, God. Ok, look, maybe Jax won't ever be your favorite person, ok, but my life is better than it has ever been. It is. I feel free and strong and like I can do anything in the world, including having a family. Dad, Jax has done that for me. He's giving me everything I could ever want. Now all that's missing is my father's blessing.

Jax: You know, Mom, you've had problems with Courtney from the beginning.

Jane: Well, my initial assessment was correct. Courtney is still in love with her previous husband.

Jax: Oh, come on. How can you possibly -- how can you say that, huh? How can you possibly know that?

Jane: Can you honestly say that Jason Morgan is not an issue between you and Courtney?

Jax: No, he was an issue, ok, but that's why it took Courtney so long to commit. But she's over him now, and I felt the change.

Jane: Your marriage to Courtney is doomed to failure. Now, you can't see that, so it's up to me to see it for you. I will find a way to stop this, Jax. I will not let Courtney hurt you.

Lorenzo: I would never go after Sonny or anyone else through their children.

Carly: Ok, I just needed to hear it from you.

Lorenzo: Now you have.

Carly: I'm so sorry for asking you. It's just that I'm scared, ok? I'm scared for Kristina. I'm even more scared for my own kids. I mean, Michael was over there tonight at Sonny's house. What if the kidnappers had taken him instead?

Lorenzo: All right. Where are Michael and Morgan now?

Carly: They're in their rooms. There's a guard standing about 10 feet away.

Lorenzo: Good, so you know they're safe.

Carly: I just want this whole thing to be over with.

Lorenzo: Does Sonny suspect Diego?

Carly: I don't know. It's possible. You know, Brook Lynn was watching Kristina, and she stepped out into the hall because she got a cell phone call from Diego, and that's when Kristina was taken. And then Sonny's guards found him jumping over the wall to get into the property.

Lorenzo: Diego's impulsive and sometimes he doesn't think, but he is a good person and strong-minded. He's brave. I don't want Diego to get caught between me and Sonny. And I'm going to do whatever I can to make sure he doesn't get hurt.

Carly: You know, you're sounding like a father.

Sonny: I know you heard me. You've heard everything I've said since I moved in. I'm giving you a chance to walk away rich and alive. Call me. End this. $5 million in exchange for the safe return of my daughter. I'm through playing games.

Jason: Sonny, Sonny, don't, don't, don't -- Sonny, don't, don't --

Sonny: Tell Stan to find the rest of the cameras, rip them all out. If the phone rings, answer it.

Jason: Ok.

Sonny: I'm too angry to think. If I hear that bastard's voice, I'm going to have to tell the truth. I will find out who they are, cut their hearts out while they watch.

Jax: Mom, this beautiful and intelligent woman --

Courtney: Jax --

Jax: Has made me very happy. We want you to be in our lives.

Jane: Well, that would imply that I approve of the two of you being together.

Jax: Will you come to our wedding?

Jane: No.

Jax: Mom, I love you. And if Dad were here, he would tell you to give Courtney --

Jane: Your father's gone, and it falls to me to give you the hard advice no one else will. End this, Jax. You are heading for a disaster from which you may never recover.

Courtney: Look, I'm sorry, Jax. I know how close you are to your mother.

Jax: My mom's convinced that you're going to hurt me, but nothing could be farther from the truth.

Courtney: Maybe she just needs time to get used to the idea.

Jax: Yeah, you know, my mom rarely changes her mind. Once she's, you know -- ok, you know what? It doesn't matter. It doesn't matter what my mother thinks, and it doesn't matter what your father thinks. I know that I love you.

Courtney: I love you, too. For what it's worth, my dad came around.

Jax: Really?

Courtney: Mm-hmm.

Jax: What'd you say to him?

Courtney: Well, I told him how wonderful you are and how you make me happier and stronger than I have ever been.

Jax: Well, it goes both ways. This is just the beginning.

Lorenzo: I have to be honest to myself and to Diego. I don't have what it takes to be a parent.

Carly: Well, what qualities do you think you're missing?

Lorenzo: Empathy, a willingness to sacrifice -- I could go on, but what's the point?

Carly: Ok, well, you do have those. And to be a parent, you just need to love your child.

Lorenzo: The kind of love I have is explosive, sometimes possessive -- exactly what a child does not need.

Carly: Oh, right, I think you're overthinking this and you're making it way too complicated, because you have an instinct to protect and help Diego, and it's half the battle.

Lorenzo: Carly, a parent needs to be a role model. I don't want Diego following in my footsteps.

Carly: You're a lot more than your business. And I think if you give Diego a chance, he's going to realize that, too.

[Knock on door]

Carly: That's the new guard. Hi --

John: Hey. Hey.

Carly: I -- I --

John: Thanks for suggesting we get together, Carly. That means a lot to me.

Carly: Oh, yeah, you know, actually, I just completely forgot.

John: You know, I was thinking maybe we could head over to the Metro Court --

Carly: I thought that --

John: We could grab a bite to eat. What the hell is he doing here?

Carly: Listen, it's --

Lorenzo: Carly and I were just discussing the complexities of parenthood. How ironic that you should arrive in the middle of the conversation.

John: You ready to go?

Carly: Actually, this is -- it's a bad time.

John: What, you're standing me up for him?

Carly: No. It's just that it's been a really long day, and I just -- I can't go out right now.

John: Carly, Carly, I know that you're angry at me, you have every right to be, but associating with a guy who most likely tried to kill me is a little bit more than I can stomach.

Carly: No, Dad, just -- just wait.

Ned: I'm here to pick up my daughter.

Ric: Max, it's ok. I'll explain everything to Mr. Ashton. Thanks.

Ned: What's going on? Brook Lynn called and said she was here, for me to come and pick her up.

Ric: Kristina's been kidnapped.

Ned: Oh my God. Oh. Well, do the police have any leads?

Ric: The police haven't been brought in yet.

Ned: Well, why not?

Ric: Sonny wants to resolve this on his own.

Ned: Sonny is a paranoid control freak. You know that. Now, you're the D.A., take charge. You have to call the police.

Ric: Look, I understand. Just under the circumstances --

Ned: Is Brook Lynn upstairs?

Ric: Yes, she is.

Ned: All right, I'm taking her out of here, we're going down to the police station, and she's going to tell them everything that went on here.

Ric: Ned, you can't do that. Ned --

Ned: Look, I happen to love Kristina, all right? I think of that little girl as if she were my own, all right? I'm not going to wait for Sonny and his thugs to come up with a lead.

Ric: But listen to me. I gave Sonny a chance to resolve this whole matter. If can't do that, then I'll call Mac Scorpio myself.

Ned: No, no, no --

Ric: Ned, wait!

Jason: Sonny, did they call? Ok, Stan found all the cameras, disconnected them.

Sonny: How many?

Jason: Half a dozen.

Sonny: Maybe it wasn't the kidnapper on the other side of that camera.

Jason: Well, Sonny, who else would bug the house? They were watching and waiting for the best time to take Kristina.

Sonny: Not necessarily. It could be one of my enemies who wired the house to get information, which means the kidnapper did not hear the ransom --

Jason: Look, I know where you're going with this, ok, and you're wrong. You're wrong. Sam did not take Kristina.

Alexis: Yes. I think she did.

Man: Look who I got. Do you want to play with the sheep?

Ric: Ned, please wait, wait --

Ned: Get your hands off of me!

Ric: You need to try to calm down.

Ned: The police need to know what's going on. So if the district attorney is too busy protecting his older brother, then I guess it's up to me.

Ric: It's not my brother that I'm protecting.

Ned: Well, it's not Brook Lynn, because she had nothing -- oh. You and Alexis are in on this together, aren't you?

Jax: Am I doing it too hard?

Courtney: No. It's perfect.

Jax: You know, this oil is from Kashgar. It's from western China, and it's supposed to stimulate the senses.

Courtney: Well, make sure that we never run out of it.

[Music plays]

Singer: I've got a secret that I think I'm ready to share it may bring us closer it may be a burden to bear it's precious and it's real and all that I can feel is that I'm falling as deep as any ocean in ways that can't be spoken I am falling for the millionth and the first time ever and eternally for you

Courtney: I never knew it could be like this. Now that I do, I know I will never want anyone else.

Jax: You won't need anyone, and I'm never going to leave you.

Singer: I'm falling like rays that come from heaven bathed in your affection I am falling for the millionth and the first time ever and eternally for you

Carly: Look, I am not canceling on you because of Lorenzo. I meant what I said. Tonight is not a good night. Sonny's daughter, Kristina, has been kidnapped.

John: Has he notified the police?

Carly: No, he doesn't want them involved yet.

John: Carly, Carly, with kidnappings, every second counts. The longer Sonny waits, the less chance he has at getting his daughter back.

Carly: Ok, you know what? I am sure that your statistics are right. I'm sure they are, but I need you to respect Sonny's wishes and I need you not to mention this to anyone.

John: Lorenzo Alcazar and Sonny are enemies. Is there any chance your pal in there might have had something to do with this?

Carly: No.

John: Have you asked him?

Carly: Yes.

John: Carly -- you got to let go of these people. Associating with mobsters is only going to get you in trouble, sweetheart.

Carly: Ok, I'm not going to discuss this with you right now.

John: All right. I won't push. Rain check on dinner?

Carly: I would like to see you when all of this is over. I'll call you, ok?

John: Yeah. Yeah, me. I think I've got a case that might be right up your alley.

Lorenzo: I can't leave Diego at Sonnyís. I'm going over there.

Carly: Ok, just wait, all right? I'll go with you. Let me just talk to Leticia.

Diego: Sonny's guards caught me jumping the fence.

Brook Lynn: Yeah, but that was after Kristina was already gone.

Diego: That doesn't make a difference. Sonny's going to twist things around and make it look like I'm guilty.

Brook Lynn: Look, Sonny just wants his daughter back, ok? That's all that matters to him. If you think he's going to hurt you, Diego, why don't you call your dad?

Ned: Alexis kidnapped Kristina when she was an infant. So why wouldn't she do it again to protect her from Sonny?

Ric: Look, Ned, I don't know for sure that Alexis is responsible for taking Kristina, but if you go to the police and they prove that she did, she's going to lose her forever.

Ned: Allow me to share with you the benefit of my experience with Alexis. Trying to save her from herself is not the basis for a successful relationship.

Ric: Ned, you loved her once. I'm begging you; do not go to the police until I am sure that Alexis is innocent.

Alexis: Sam asked me if she could spend more time with Kristina. She said it would make her feel closer to her own daughter. I expressed that I was uncomfortable with that, and she backed off and got defensive.

Jason: Well, that doesn't prove anything, Alexis.

Alexis: I think that she may have taken her. Now, if she did, you need to go find her and bring her back.

[Phone rings]

Sonny: Pick it up.

Jason: Hello.

Sam: Jason, it's Sam.

Jason: What's going on?

Sam: Yeah, look, I am in serious trouble.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Elizabeth: Lucky?

[Monitor flatlines]

Elizabeth: Oh, God. Code Blue.

Monica: How was your trip to Pentonville?

Emily: I didn't see Nikolas.

Ned: We have to call the cops.

Ric: This could ruin Alexis' life.

Jason: I'll come and get you.

Sam: It's too late. You can't help me.

Sonny: That was Sam.
