General Hospital Transcript Tuesday 2/22/05
Proofread by Brian
Emily: Ok, just don't touch me. Just leave me alone.
Nikolas: I don't understand. What did I do wrong?
Emily: Everything's changed.
Emily: Nikolas, I can't be with you, not now.
Luke: Breathe. Breathe, damn you. Come on, cowboy. I'm here. I'm waiting. You can do this! Lucky. Lucky! Doctor! Doctor, get in here! He's breathing! Get that tube out of him! He's breathing! He's --
Jason: It's Michael and Morgan.
Carly: Where are the boys?
John: They're gone.
Reese: I got a man down in the cemetery. Send police backup and the paramedics.
Sonny: Justus? What can you tell me?
Justus: It wasn't Faith.
Sonny: Did you see which way he went?
Reese: I lost sight of him in the fog, Sonny.
Sonny: We had one lead to find Kristina. Now it's gone.
Carly: Someone grabbed my sons?
John: I don't know how they got past the guards.
Carly: How did they do it? Did you see who did it? Who did this? You know who took them?
John: Carly, Carly, Carly, if that's the kidnapper, let them do the talking. Say as little as possible. I want you to write everything down. Write it down!
Jason: Carly, don't let Michael and Morgan out of your sight. Faith is going --
Carly: Michael and Morgan are already gone.
Skye: Luke, what is it? I heard you yelling. What's wrong?
Luke: It worked. Lucky's breathing.
Skye: What? Are -- are you sure?
Luke: Yeah, look! The doctor's taking the tube out of his throat. He doesn't need it.
Skye: Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Thank God you were right. Is he awake?
Luke: No, I don't think so, but he's definitely breathing on his own, and that's the first step. Skye, I knew this was going to work. I knew it. I knew if we gave him a chance, he could do it, so I unplugged the machines and he -- he did. His instincts kicked in and he started to breathe. You know what that means? That means he's on his way back to me. He's -- he's going to live!
Nikolas: You're my wife. I love you more than anything in the world. If there's something wrong, I mean, other than the fact that Iím in here, then I need to know so we can make it right.
Emily: It is not us or you. I love you, Nikolas. You don't even know how much. I mean, despite all of the wrong and stupid things that Iíve done to try to get you released from here, Iím still thinking about the next step. I mean, my God, you'd think that I would stop. Lucky is in a coma because of our plan to try to uncover Helena.
Nikolas: Is that why you're upset? Because you feel guilty about being with me while Lucky's in the hospital fighting for his life? Is that it? What is it?
Emily: No, not exactly. Why can't you just let this go?
Nikolas: Look, because. I tried to kiss you and you pushed me away. I would like to know why.
Emily: Right, and Iím asking you to drop this, Nikolas. Why do you have to keep pressuring me? Why can't you just leave me alone?
Ric: How's my wife?
Alexis: I don't know what's going on. I want someone to tell me, and nobody's talking to me. Agent Marshall hasn't called me. And then I think maybe no news is good news, and that doesn't work for very long because then I start imagining the worst.
Ric: Well, it's understandable. Look, I know how frustrated you are, but I also know that you have the -- you have the capacity to be able to turn that energy around.
Alexis: I don't know that I can do that anymore.
Ric: Alexis, when Kristina was ill, you were being told all types of things by the doctors, all right? When there didn't seem to be any hope, you were able to see beyond that. You were scared to death, you didn't know what was going to happen, but your daughter never saw that. Through sheer force of will, you were able to stay calm for your child. And that is what you have to do now, Alexis, for both of your children.
Mac: Tell me what you remember.
John: I ordered pizzas. I can't say for sure what time they were delivered. Probably 7:00. About 7:00.
Mac: Where were Michael and Morgan?
John: Their bedrooms. I started to set the table, and that's it. Next thing I know, Iím on the floor coming to with this gash in my head. I yell for Michael, I run to their bedrooms, and this -- and they were gone.
Ofc. Serino: Look, I'm not going to tell you again, you can't go in there!
Carly: Let him in!
Mac: It's ok, Serino.
Jason: Ok, ok, just please just start from the beginning. When did you know something was wrong?
Carly: When I came around the corner and all the guards were lying on the floor.
Jason: Have they given statements yet?
Mac: They're still unconscious. I've got people canvassing the neighborhood. So far, no one's come forward with any information.
Jason: Ok, what about the doorman? Was he on duty? Was he there?
Carly: I said hi to him when I walked in.
Mac: He didn't see anything. The kidnapper probably took Michael and Morgan out a different way. Are you sure about the time on that pizza delivery?
John: That's my best guess.
Carly: What are you thinking, Mac? Just say it.
Mac: Look, if your father's right and the boys were taken around 7:00; they're probably out of Port Charles by now.
Reese: The shooter appeared to be a woman, but Justus seemed sure that it wasn't Faith. Of course, he could've been protecting her, but I doubt it. He seemed truly shaken that Faith has added kidnapping children to her bag of tricks.
Ofc. Murphy: Maybe you can help me with something. You're supposed to be this hotshot F.B.I. agent, right? How could you show up to a ransom drop unprepared? This place should've been crawling with surveillance. At the very least, you should've had a perimeter of officers set up to grab the perp just in case this case went south.
Reese: If you're through criticizing me, Officer Murphy, maybe you could be of some real help. I need this cemetery cordoned off. An F.B.I. forensics team is on its way to go over the area. We should come up with a lead. I realize that we've suffered a setback, but this is far from over. So do your daughter a favor and don't panic.
Sonny: What's going on?
Carly: Michael and Morgan are missing.
Emily: You don't know what it's been like for me. My brother A.J. was brutally murdered. My grandfather is shattered. My mother's heart is broken, and my father is so full of guilt and rage that he doesn't even know where to put it. Lucky is in a coma because he was shot trying to save me, and now Luke has the legal right to turn off his life-support! I spend all day, every day putting back the pieces of my family or sitting by Lucky's bedside willing him awake. I can't take care of your sexual needs right now.
Nikolas: Emily, come on.
Emily: I can't turn off the horror that's become my life and just sail in here with a big smile on my face and let you touch me like everything's ok!
Nikolas: The last thing I wanted to do was pressure you. And I'm sorry if Iíve been insensitive to what you're going through.
Emily: You havenít. And I realize that you're in your own hell, locked away in here, and I shouldn't have gone off on you like that.
Nikolas: What are husbands for? Look, I don't want you to worry about me. I don't want you to hide your feelings. I just wish that you would allow me to comfort you and hold you like you used to. My God, you're -- you're shaking all over. What -- please, will you please just tell me what is the matter, please? What?
[Knock on door]
Guard: Time's up, Nikolas.
Emily: I'm so sorry that Iíve wasted our time together.
Nikolas: What are you talk-- being with you is not a waste of time. What are you talking about? What are you --?
Emily: I'll be back as soon as I can.
Skye: This is a good sign, right? This means that Lucky, he's coming out of the coma?
Steven: He's still unresponsive.
Skye: Yeah, but he's getting better. What Iím saying is a week ago, he wouldn't have been able to survive without that ventilator.
Steven: See, Lucky's body being on the ventilator gave it a chance to recover, but I'm afraid that he's still in a very deep coma, and I'm sorry to say that he'll probably stay that way. I'm sorry. I wish I could tell you something more positive.
Luke: No. Doctor, you don't know my son like I do. He's on his way back. He's going to be ok.
Steven: I hope so. In any case, if you need me, I'll be around.
Skye: You know doctors. They always have to err on the side of caution when they're not sure. Luke, you're right, this is amazing progress.
Luke: I know. I know. You know, I've read some medical journals while Iíve been sitting here these last few nights. Did you know that it's possible for people to live in a comatose state for over 20 years, unresponsive, slowly curling into a fetal position as their muscles atrophy, taking their meals and their air through a tube? Imagine that -- 20 years trapped in a useless body with no way out. That's not going to happen to him. It won't happen to him. It can't.
Ric: I'm not asking you to shut off your feelings, but as clichť as it sounds, you have to try to think positively. There are a lot of smart, dedicated people that are working around the clock to bring Kristina home safely.
Alexis: She's got to be so confused. If I could just have a minute with her just to reassure her --
Ric: Maybe -- maybe there's a way you can. Look, when I was a kid, sometimes I'd feel so alone and angry and miserable, just -- I felt abandoned. Then all of a sudden, completely out of nowhere, I'd feel better, like somebody had -- I don't know, like somebody had promised me everything was going to be ok even though it hadn't.
Alexis: Is this supposed to be making me feel better?
Ric: Yeah, I'm getting to that part. I'd like to think that the part where the clouds had lifted happened because my mother was somewhere in the world thinking about me and loving me, despite our separation.
Alexis: You know, maybe that's true. Maybe that's true. I did that with my mother when I imagined that she was there when she wasn't really there, and it helped me, it did, and I can only hope that's helping Kristina. At least I want to believe that it is.
Ric: We can believe it together.
Steven: Get him to O.R. Three.
Ofc. Murphy: Doc?
Steven: I need you to page Monica and Alan Quartermaine, tell them their cousin's going in for surgery.
Ofc. Murphy: Doc, I need to question Mr. Ward before surgery.
Steven: Look, Murphy, there's no time. He's critical.
Lorenzo: Mr. Ward was shot?
Dispatcher: All units, Michael Corinthos III, age 9, and his brother, Morgan, age 1, were abducted from their home at or around 7:00 p.m. The suspected kidnapper is Faith Rosco, who should be considered armed and extremely dangerous.
Jason: Hey, Carly, just give me the details, ok? Where'd you get out of the cab, on the corner or the front of the building?
Carly: I didn't see Faith, ok?
Jason: Carly --
Carly: I didn't stand there and watch her steal my kids!
Jason: I'm just trying to get some information.
Carly: You know what happened, Jason? You know what happened? They probably drugged Michael.
Jason: Don't even think about that right now, Carly.
Carly: Otherwise, he would've put up a fight. What if she's got him tied up? What if he's hurt?
Jason: Carly, please, just try to hold it together, Carly, please!
Carly: Ok. I got out of the cab in the front of the apartment. There were two cars in the way.
John: What is the F.B.I. doing to find my grandsons? No, don't answer that. Not enough, I know. I want a team flown from Washington right now.
Reese: Maybe you'd better sit down before you pass out.
Mac: Carly, I need a recent picture of Michael and Morgan.
Carly: You want to alert the media?
Mac: As soon as possible.
Carly: You think it's a good idea?
Mac: It's your sons' best chance.
Reese: The commissioner's right. If we alert the public, someone might call in a tip. We need to shine a spotlight on Faith so she has no room to maneuver.
Carly: Yeah, and why should we believe anything you say?
Sonny: It's not Agent Marshallís fault, Carly. I'm to blame here. You know what? I refused to cooperate, which gave Faith the chance to go after my other two children. So if you need to go off on somebody, you can go ahead and go off on me.
Skye: Luke? You were so right about taking Lucky off those machines. Absolutely, 100% right. And I am so sorry that I fought you on that.
Luke: Listen, sweetheart, you were doing what you thought was right. You were following your conscience. It turned out ok anyway. But if Dr. Webber is any indication, it looks like the doctors are still going to think he's a hopeless case.
Skye: He is not hopeless.
Luke: I can't tell you how good it is to finally agree with you on something. I know he's not hopeless. He's breathing on his own. That's the first step. He's coming back to me. I know he is. I know it.
Skye: Because you gave him that chance.
Luke: You know, I never wanted to be a father. It only happened because Laura needed it so badly. I can't say it's been the happiest of experiences. In fact, the last eight or 10 years, Iíve pretty bitterly regretted it. But right now, looking at him breathing on his own, knowing he's coming back, I'm so proud. It's the only thing that matters to me right now -- him, my son.
Alexis: Hey, Kristina. You want to see your baby sister?
Ric: Come on, honey, go ahead.
Alexis: Come here and see her. Come here and see the baby. Isn't she sweet?
Ric: I love you.
Alexis: I love you.
John: Look, I told you everything I know. I never saw the kidnappers. I don't even know what time the boys were taken. So quit dogging me, go find my grandsons -- who, by the way, were grabbed while you were violating procedure to accommodate Sonny. You better hope that your soft spot for mobsters doesn't cost you your badge, lady.
Reese: My only goal is to find those children.
John: Well, then start producing results, because if you don't, I will. I got a lot of people in Washington who owe me. I'll use that and every other thing in my power to bring back my grandsons, and if your career happens to suffer a little collateral damage in my path, tough luck. And if Iím going to see a doctor, it's got to be now.
Ric: Michael and Morgan were kidnapped?
Reese: From Carlyís apartment.
Ric: Do you have any leads?
Reese: We've confirmed the kidnapper is Faith Rosco.
Ric: Faith Rosco is a psychopath who is motivated to destroy Sonny, Alexis, and me. If she has all three children, then there's no way she's ever going to voluntarily give them up.
Carly: This one's pretty accurate, don't you think?
Sonny: Yeah, it's fine.
Mac: I left a tap on your phone. If Faith contacts you, the call will be traced. You should brace yourself for a flood of media attention. All right? Be prepared for false leads. So conserve your energy, try not to get discouraged or give in to fear. The best thing you can do for your sons right now is to stay calm and keep cooperating with law enforcement. I'll be in touch.
Carly: Ok, Mac, if you hear anything, please -- please let us know. Well, we have -- um -- two things that are positive. I mean, Faith, she's afraid of you, Sonny. She is. She wouldn't risk harming the kids. And she's a money-grubbing little parasite, so I'm sure.
Sonny: Faith already has everything she wanted. We'll never hear from her again.
Elizabeth: Hey, Em. How are you? Are you ok?
Emily: Yeah, I just came from seeing Nikolas.
Elizabeth: Is he ok?
Emily: Well, for someone who spent the last few weeks in solitary, he's remarkably together. He hates being in prison, but he's not going to let it break him. I just need to take a lesson from that and be as strong and resilient as he is.
Elizabeth: Hmm. So I take it you didn't tell him?
Emily: I couldn't. Elizabeth, I tried.
Emily: For a moment, I thought that I just might actually be able to say the words, but --
Elizabeth: So what changed your mind?
Emily: I didn't want to see the look in his eyes. I didn't want to see my husband hate me.
Elizabeth: Emily, he wouldnít.
Emily: And why not? Elizabeth, it's what I deserve.
Elizabeth: Oh, Em.
Emily: I mean, I ignored all of Nikolas' warnings, along with my own instincts. I was willful. I was stubborn. I stayed in an isolated house with an insane man who'd convinced himself that I was in love with him. I mean, Nikolas begged me --
Elizabeth: Ok, ok, you know what, stop, all right? I'm not going to stand here and listen to you blame yourself for being raped. This is why you need to tell Nikolas, so he can help you through it, maybe -- maybe even get you into counseling.
Elizabeth: It's Nikolas.
Emily: Please don't answer it.
Elizabeth: Em, I have to.
Nikolas: Yeah, hey, it's me. Did -- did something happen to Emily that she's not telling me about?
Skye: Why don't you go and get some rest? I'll stay with him.
Luke: Thanks, but no. I want to stay a little longer, just in case he wakes up. I want to be here.
Skye: My God. Can't believe I'm actually standing here listening to Luke Spencer, world-class cynic, spinning best-case scenarios. Next thing you know, you're going to be believing in miracles.
Luke: Hey, careful now. Don't talk nonsense. This was sheer logic. There was no miracle here. This was deductive thinking, by the doctors and the judge who allowed me to turn off the breathing machine and his mean, old, heartless father. No, there was no divine intervention. There were no faith moving mountains. This -- this was sheer courage on Lucky's part and his will to live, his instincts for survival. I have never loved him more.
Skye: You keep telling him that. That's exactly what he needs to hear.
Luke: Oh, you did it, cowboy. You found the trail and you're on your way back. Come on now; come all the way back. Open your eyes. Let me tell you how proud I am that you are my son.
Ric: We have a past history with the suspected kidnapper. Her name is Faith Rosco.
Dr. Meadows: I've heard of her.
Ric: Yeah, nothing too good, I imagine. The woman is a nut case with particular grudges against Sonny, Alexis, and me, not necessarily in that order. I'm just -- I don't believe that she ever intends to return Kristina.
Dr. Meadows: Oh, I'm sorry.
Ric: Doctor, I know that Alexis needs to be kept informed, even when the news is this bad, but I'm just concerned that the shock is going to cause her to miscarry.
Dr. Meadows: Well, you have a right to be concerned. The possibility is a real one.
Ric: So what's your professional opinion?
Dr. Meadows: Well, strictly from a medical standpoint, it would be better to keep the news from Alexis for as long as possible.
Reese: Put together everything we have on Faith Rosco. Start from scratch.
Lorenzo: Maybe I can help.
Reese: Get back to me as soon as you can. All right.
Lorenzo: You're Agent Marshall, right?
Reese: And you're Lorenzo Alcazar, brother of Luis, though you tend to keep a lower profile -- except, of course, when it comes to Carly Corinthos.
Lorenzo: Congratulations. You've done your homework. Are you equally well-informed on the subject of Faith Rosco?
Reese: Why are you asking?
Lorenzo: Because I know a lot. I've had numerous dealings with her, and I'm willing to share any information I have with the F.B.I. if it will help Carly get back her boys.
Reese: I don't trust you, Mr. Alcazar.
Lorenzo: Is trust really an issue?
Reese: No. I can't afford to be picky about leads. You put together whatever you have on Faith and you'll be hearing from me.
Sonny: This isn't about money for Faith. She can care less. Yeah, you know, $5 million falls in her lap; she'll take it as a bonus. This is about doing me in, about breaking my heart, and damn it if she didn't do it. She's got all three of my kids -- all three of my kids, God knows where!
Jason: Sonny, you forget one thing -- Faith is her own worst enemy. She's sloppy, she's reckless, and she makes mistakes all the time.
Sonny: I haven't seen many!
Jason: Yeah, we're going to find them.
Jason: Michael and Morgan and Kristina are not lost. I'm telling you, we're going to get them back.
Carly: He's right.
Sonny: You know how much Faith hates me; how easily she kills. What are the chances of us seeing our kids again?
Nikolas: You know Emily was just here, right? Well, when I kissed her, she literally pushed me away, and then when I tried to hold her, she was shaking like a leaf. I'm worried that something seriously is wrong and she's keeping it from me.
Elizabeth: Um -- yeah, Nikolas, there is something wrong. Emily's been under a lot of pressure lately. Ever since A.J. died, everybody's been coming to her and, you know, she's been at the hospital every day talking to Lucky, trying to get him to come back because you know she feels responsible for his condition. The other day, she just broke down crying and she couldn't stop. You know how Emily is. She tries to take care of everyone but herself, and I think that's what -- I think that's what happened with you today. She's trying really hard not to show you how badly she's hurting.
Nikolas: Yeah. I don't know. It makes sense, I guess. When Iím in prison, it wouldn't occur to Emily to let me carry the burden.
Guard: Let's go.
Nikolas: All right, listen, listen, I have to go. Will you just -- will you promise me that you'll look after Emily and try not to let her push herself too hard? Will you promise me?
Elizabeth: I promise I'll do whatever I can.
Nikolas: Ok. Thanks. Just -- just tell her I love her, ok?
Elizabeth: I will. Bye.
Emily: Thank you so much.
Elizabeth: I'm not going to do that again.
Emily: Elizabeth, what are you saying?
Elizabeth: Your husband is worried sick about you, and for good reason, Emily. It's not fair to keep him in the dark, and you need to start to deal with what's happening to you. If you don't tell him that you were raped, I will.
Jason: Hey, how's it going?
Sam: Good. Here, sit. I tried to put them in chronological order as best as I could figure out.
Jason: Ok. Now we need to go through every one of these.
Sam: All right, but what exactly are we looking for?
Jason: Discrepancies. You know, a license plate on a car in the background, anything that points to Faith.
Sam: That's going to be kind of hard. There are hundreds of photos here.
Jason: I know. Kristina and Morgan are too young to understand, but Michael knows what's going on. He's a smart kid. He knows what this means, and he's going to fight back. Faith's not going to have any patience.
Carly: I have no idea what Faith is going to do. Neither do you. How can we? I mean, how are we supposed to know what's going on inside of her mind? But she's not going to win, Sonny. We won't let her.
Sonny: Faith could've left town more than a year ago. She had every opportunity to walk away. She didn't. She broke out of prison, a clean break, and she came back. Why? Because she hates me that much. Her purpose in life is to see me suffer. Now that she has the means, she's going to use it for all it's worth, Carly.
Carly: I'm not going there, Sonny. I am not going there with you. Our boys are alive. They're going to stay that way. We're going to find them. We're going to find them and we're going to bring them home. And if you can't believe that, if you can't find some way to have hope for our sons, then you can take your pessimism somewhere else!
Sonny: Yeah, fine.
Alexis: I actually had a really nice dream.
Ric: Yeah? Do you remember it?
Alexis: The baby was born. It was a girl. Kristina was saying hello to her for the first time. We were going home, getting ready to go home, and it was so nice. And it seemed so real. I know it was just a dream, but it was reassuring for a minute.
Ric: Maybe somehow in your dream you are able to process all of that, huh?
Alexis: I need to see what's going on.
TV announcer: Police have announced a major development --
Alexis: Oh, my God. What are you doing? I wanted to hear that! What's happening?
Ric: Please listen to me. It's not good.
Alexis: I can see that.
Ric: Michael and Morgan were abducted earlier this evening by Faith Rosco.
Alexis: Oh, my God. That lunatic has all the children!
Ric: Sonny -- Sonny arranged a ransom drop with Faith, but it was a setup. She got away with -- with $5 million and all three children. Now the police have put out an A.P.B. The F.B.I. are calling in a special team.
Alexis: We're never going to get her back. We're never going to get her back!
Lorenzo: Hey. I heard Faith kidnapped Michael and Morgan. I'm really sorry.
Lorenzo: I want you to know that I am pulling together all the information on her and I'm going to turn it over to the F.B.I. Maybe they can come up with some kind of a clue as to where she took your children.
Carly: Thanks, Lorenzo.
Lorenzo: Yeah. Look, if there's anything else you need, any way that I can help, all you have to do is tell me.
Carly: I'm trying to keep a positive attitude. It's counterproductive not to, right?
Carly: Faith got away with a lot of money. The boys could be anywhere by now. You know, Morganís not going to be a problem for her. He -- he can't talk, you know. He can't tell anyone he's been abducted. But Michael? She's going to have to keep him quiet. You know, he tries to be so brave, he tries to be so strong just like his father, but --
TV announcer: The suspect, Faith Rosco, should be considered armed and extremely dangerous. Alleged racketeer and organized crime figure Michael Sonny Corinthos Jr. is --
Jason: What are these over here?
Sam: Accidents, shots out of focus, that kind of thing.
Jason: Ok. Look, it obviously was taken from the inside of a car.
Sam: Yeah, I thought so, too.
Jason: That blurry thing, the sign. Sam, we got to clear this picture enough to read that sign. It might be a lead to where Faith took the kids.
Faith: Ok, wait right here. Good, Morgan. Hey there, sleepyhead. You feeling all refreshed?
Michael: You stole us.
Faith: Oh. "Stole" is such a harsh word. I prefer "Liberated."
Michael: You are in so much trouble.
Faith: You think so?
Michael: When Dad finds us, he's going to kill you.
Faith: Well, aren't you the nasty little brat. Kind of a combination of your psycho father and your wacky mother. Don't worry, you'll be perfectly safe. I have plans for you.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Ric: You're working with law enforcement?
John: You think you're going to use this kidnapping to further your agenda with Carly, right?
Michael: My brother has a fever. Feel his forehead.
Sonny: Don't you think I'd give my life to get them back?
Jason: We got a lead.
