Rachel: Well, aren't you the Lucky girl.
Courtney: Why do you say that?
Rachel: Those. They're from Jax.
Courtney: So you read the card?
Rachel: I couldn't resist.
Courtney: I have a meeting here. I guess he wanted to surprise me.
Rachel: You know, he really is an incredible man. I can totally understand why you would risk so much to protect him.
Courtney: You are not going to hurt Jax.
Rachel: Nothing is going to happen to your precious fiancÚ as long as you stick to what we agreed to.
Courtney: Rachel, I haven't agreed to kill Steven.
Rachel: Look, the sooner this is over, the better for everyone, especially Jax. So why don't you pick a date and stick to it. What do you say, the end of next week?
Carly: We should've heard something by now. I mean, come on, this guy's got no reason to be loyal to Faith. How long does it take to decide whether you want to save your own life or share where some children are? Something's gone wrong.
Sam: We're going to hear from them soon, Carly.
[Knock on door]
Lorenzo: I flew down to see if I could help.
Carly: Thank you. Uh, come on in.
Lorenzo: Thanks. Tell me what's going on.
Carly: Michael called Sonny. He was about to tell them -- tell them where he and Morgan and Kristina were, and --
Lorenzo: It's all right. What?
Carly: Faith grabbed the phone from him. There were gunshots, and then the line just went dead.
Jason: Come on! Come on!
Sonny: This is for my children.
Reese: Don't kill her! The children aren't here.
Sonny: Where are my children? Don't die on me!
Sonny: Save her, Jason. If she dies, we'll never find the kids. I'm going to look around because I know the kids are here someplace.
Reese: Let's find them.
Sonny: Keep that bitch alive!
Reese: We got two men dead, one badly wounded. We need an ambulance.
Elizabeth: How's Alexis doing?
Ric: Uh, stubborn, you know, argumentative -- normal. She's lying down in bed, so I'm resting a little bit easier.
Elizabeth: Oh, good. You must be really excited about this baby.
Ric: Yeah, well, you know, Alexis getting pregnant was the last thing that we expected, but now that it's happened, I can't wait to hold my son or daughter.
Elizabeth: I'm really happy for you, Ric.
Ric: That's very generous of you. You know, Elizabeth, I know that you've moved on with your life and you have Cameron, and you -- you really are a wonderful mother.
Elizabeth: Well, thank you. You know, I still think about our baby.
Ric: Well, then you deserve to know the truth about what really happened, about how and why our child was taken from us.
Courtney: Rachel, listen to me, you can threaten me all you want, but if anything happens to Jax, you will regret it.
Rachel: Temper, Courtney. The last thing that I want to do is hurt Jax, but that is up to you. Look, if Steven dies, well, then Jax will be as perfect as he always has been.
Courtney: Look, I can still go to the police.
Rachel: How many times do we have to go over this? Your fingerprints are on the murder weapon that killed A.J.
Courtney: Yeah, because you put them there.
Rachel: Can you prove that? Look, let's not quibble over the details, all right? We have been getting along so well lately.
Courtney: I can't do this, Rachel. I can't kill Steven.
Rachel: You know, I had no idea just how selfish you are. When you are in jail for killing for A.J., what is going to happen to little Jesse Flanagan or Tina Rae Williams?
Courtney: Those are kids from my foundation.
Rachel: I am very thorough. Now, I understand that it is going to be hard for you to kill Steven, so what do you say, in the spirit of girlfriends, I'll do my part to help out.
Courtney: Meaning what?
Rachel: I will orchestrate the entire thing. I will make Steven's death look like an accident.
Woman: Excuse me? Dr. Adair? I just wanted to thank you for the excellent care you gave my daughter.
Rachel: Oh, it's not necessary, really. I just found the right treatment.
Woman: But everyone else gave up on her, and you wouldn't let her go. Today she's going home.
Rachel: No, really, it's my pleasure, believe me.
Woman: God bless you.
Courtney: God, Rachel, you have a gift for saving lives. I don't understand how you can ask me to take one.
Emily: You realize that it's way too early for you to be out of your room.
Lucky: Well, it's just -- it's a Spencer family tradition. A change of scenery is the best medicine.
Emily: Listen, I'm trusting you on this, Lucky, but I'm warning you, if you push yourself too hard and something happens, I'm never going to forgive you. You gave us a miracle by waking up, so don't wreck it.
Lucky: Things have been that bad?
Emily: Yeah, things have been awful.
Lucky: Tell me.
Emily: Oh, ok, sure, Lucky, that's really going to work. I'm going to cheer you right up with a big litany of everything that's gone wrong in my life.
Lucky: You know what the worst part about being stuck in this wheelchair --
Emily: You're not stuck, Lucky, you're recovering.
Lucky: No. Everyone thinks they have to help me. You know, hey, make me feel useful. Let me help you, at least by listening.
Carly: I know in my heart that Michael's alive.
Lorenzo: Just got to keep believing, keep trusting. That's the most you can do.
Officer: I'm looking for Agent Marshall.
Sam: She's not here.
Officer: Well, do you know when she'll be back?
Dispatcher: All personnel -- shots fired at St. Bartholomew's Church. Two fatalities. Proceed with extreme caution.
Reese: We searched everywhere. There's no sign of the children.
Sonny: She alive?
Sonny: Got to keep her alive, Jason!
Jason: I'm trying!
Sonny: She's got to tell us where the kids -- where's the ambulance?
Reese: I've called them twice, Sonny. They're on their way.
Sonny: The kids are gone, and Faith, or her men, have been digging a hole.
Reese: Don't jump to conclusions, Sonny. That shovel proves nothing.
Sonny: There's mud on her shoes!
Jason: Come on, she's still alive.
Paramedic: How many times was she shot?
Reese: Don't give up, Sonny. We won't know what's happened until we can question Faith.
Sonny: We don't even know if she's going to live, Reese. Get your team in here, every expert you got. We have to figure out what she did with my children!
Ric: Faith told me that she pushed you down the steps of Ryce Plaza. You were pregnant with my child and she wanted to end it, and if she killed you in the process, all the better.
Elizabeth: I can't believe it was Faith all along.
Ric: Elizabeth, I'm -- I'm so sorry.
Elizabeth: No, don't. It wasn't your fault. That woman was just fixated on you. She's crazy. She has to be stopped.
Ric: She will be, if I have anything to say about it -- for our child, for Michael, for Morgan, for Kristina. I'm not going to rest until Faith is in prison or dead.
Rachel: It doesn't matter how many children's lives I save. I still need Steven gone.
Courtney: Ok, look, Rachel, there is no doubt that Steven should've shared the blame in that patient's death when you guys were residents, but, I mean -- yeah, he took advantage of you, but it is over now. You've got a great career, a promising future. Why keep living in the past?
Rachel: Do you know that he never even said sorry?
Courtney: Is that what you want? You want an apology?
Rachel: Well, it would help.
Courtney: Ok, well, would it change your mind about wanting Steven dead?
Rachel: If I thought that he really meant it? Yes.
Courtney: Ok, well, then don't you owe it to yourself to find out how Steven really feels? Talk to him, Rachel. Give him a chance to make things right. Come on.
Jax: I see my flowers have arrived. Are you surprised?
Rachel: We were just saying you are the last of a dying breed.
Jax: Well, did you read the card?
Courtney: Oh. No, not yet.
Jax: Oh, ok. Well, it says that I miss you and I'm going to have to do something about it.
Courtney: Really? Like what?
Jax: I'm going to take you someplace where no one can disturb us.
Courtney: Jax, it's not a good idea right now.
Rachel: She accepts.
Emily: You think I should be helping Nikolas?
Lucky: Well, it is the first time you mentioned it. It just seems a little odd.
Emily: Listen, Alexis is too worried about Kristina to be working on Nikolas' appeal, and besides, the best way to set Nikolas free is to prove that Helena's alive, which Luke swears that he's going to do.
Lucky: Well, I wouldn't count on my father for anything.
Emily: So all Nikolas can do is just wait and get through the days in prison the best he can. So they took him out of solitary, and I went to visit him.
Lucky: Yeah? How was it?
Emily: Well, Nikolas grew a beard. It's not -- I don't know, I'm just not used to it. He was happy to see me, and I was so glad to see him, but we're just different, you know? He needed me, and I couldn't -- I just -- I couldn't explain. And Nikolas got hurt and I just wound up asking him for a divorce. I know, just go ahead, say it, Lucky. I'm awful, I'm selfish, I'm --
Lucky: Do you still love him?
Emily: Of course I do, Lucky. I'll always love him. Love isn't the problem. I just think that he would be better off if he were free.
Lucky: Well, I doubt Nikolas would agree.
Emily: Yeah, well, I got a message from him telling me to do whatever I think I need to. So I guess that means that he'll agree to the divorce. So all I have to do is ask Justus to start the paperwork.
Lucky: But you haven't.
Emily: Well, there hasn't been a chance. Justus got shot. He's in the hospital. He's -- ok, I know, that's an excuse. The truth is, Lucky, I don't want a divorce. I just -- I don't see any other way.
Lucky: Well, here's the good news -- you don't have to decide anything right now.
Emily: You know, the good news is that I have you back. I missed you so much. Lucky, I'm so glad you're ok.
Ric: Whoa, whoa, whoa. She's resting, ok? She doesn't need any visitors.
John: Faith has been caught.
Ric: Was Kristina with her?
John: No, there's no word on any of the children.
Ric: So what did they do? Did they offer Faith a deal?
John: Faith was shot. She hasn't regained consciousness. It's possible she never will.
Ric: Is there any -- are there any other people that they can question about where the children are?
John: No, Ric, the henchmen are dead. If Faith dies, we may never see those kids again.
Ric: There's got to be some other way.
John: Look, I just wanted you to know to tell Alexis. She's got to prepare herself.
Ric: All right, why don't you let me handle that.
John: All right.
Ric: How you feeling?
Alexis: I just had a dream again. Kristina was in it. We were having a picnic, all three of us. We're going to find her. I just know it.
Lorenzo: I spoke to the local police. They couldn't confirm who'd been shot.
Carly: It's Faith. Sonny. Sonny, what happened? Where are the kids?
Sam: Jason. I'm glad you're -- they said that two people were shot.
Jason: Yeah, two of Faith's guys. I wasn't hit.
Carly: Jason, where are the kids? Where are they? If they're not with Faith, then she sent them somewhere.
Reese: The children weren't at the church, but that doesn't mean we won't find them.
Carly: Do you have any leads? I mean, maybe she took them somewhere. Maybe she relocated them to --
Sonny: Faith passed out before she could tell us anything.
Carly: And what? What aren't you telling me, Sonny?
Sonny: Faith -- she had mud stains on her pants and her shoes. We found a shovel.
Carly: Oh, my god.
Sonny: Ok, the mud was -- was fresh. That's all we know.
Steven: Your secret's out. Whole hospital knows about how you saved the O'Leary child. You're not going to be able to move in this hospital today without somebody congratulating you.
Rachel: Well, it is the price that we pay.
Steven: The hospital is starting to learn what I've known since we were residents, which is that you're a brilliant doctor.
Rachel: Steven, you know that compliments make me feel uncomfortable.
Steven: I do. I know a lot about you. I know that one time, you threw me a birthday party in the morgue of the hospital.
Rachel: I've never seen anybody so surprised.
Steven: I'd never seen the cadavers sing "happy birthday" before.
Rachel: I thought you were going to faint!
Steven: Well, luckily, we had vodka in the I.V. You thought of everything that night. Everything.
Rachel: I wonder, Steven, do you ever feel sorry about what happened between us?
Jax: I called ahead. I had the caretaker make a fire for us.
Courtney: You were right. It does feel good to get away.
Jax: Yeah. You know, ever since we got engaged, it's been one crisis after another -- my mother saying that our marriage would fail, your niece and nephew getting kidnapped, then Alan Quartermaine, you know, claiming that you murdered A.J. I mean, as if you could ever murder anyone, right? Even someone who treated you as badly as A.J. I mean, anyone who knows you knows that you're kind and loving and gentle --
Courtney: Jax, stop. I can't do this anymore.
Ric: All right. Well, thank you, Lieutenant. You just let me know if there's any change. All right. Faith's still in surgery. There's no word on any of the children.
Alexis: Oh, just gets worse by the hour. What if she doesn't wake up?
Ric: She will. When she does, I'm going to be there.
Alexis: Are you going to Louisiana?
Ric: Yes, I am. Now, there's a chance that Faith might talk to me, if only to gloat, but I got to at least try.
Alexis: I'm going with you.
Carly: Ok, so Faith was digging something. It doesn't mean it's got anything to do with our kids. Sonny, she just got away with $5 million. She was probably burying it. Or maybe -- maybe her car got stuck and she was -- she was trying to dig it out. Come on, Sonny. There are about a hundred million reasons why there could be mud on a shovel that have nothing to do with -- the kids are fine.
Reese: Local law enforcement is on the scene. I've called in an F.B.I. Forensics team. Now, Faith's assistant, that guy Peavy -- he said the kids were at the church, so we're going to use that as our starting point and we're going to try and --
Carly: Don't you say "try." Don't say "try"! Don't you act like you're going to do everything that you can and when it doesn't work out, it doesn't matter. There are three kids out there and you need to find them!
Sonny: Carly, they're doing everything they can. What do you want --
Reese: Every available agent is on the scene. Hey, we're not going to stop looking for those kids until we bring them home.
Carly: Faith couldn't have gotten far. She couldn't, right? You said there were roadblocks all over the county.
Reese: That's right.
Carly: There were patrol boats in the river, so the kids -- they're here. She was trapped. They couldn't have gotten far. Look, Sonny, Michael probably -- maybe he got away again. I'm sure he did. He did it once before. And when Faith doesn't come back, maybe the person who's holding them, they're just going to give up.
Sonny: Carly, we're going to keep looking. That's all we can do. We're going to keep looking.
Lorenzo: Agent Marshall? You sincerely believe you're going to be able to bring those children back alive? Neither do I.
Sam: Maybe Carly's right, Jason. Maybe the shovel doesn't mean anything.
Jason: Faith didn't know the kids were gone. Before the shooting started, Sonny said Faith was trying to get in one of the backrooms of the church.
Sam: Ok, well, do you think she was going to check on the kids?
Jason: Yeah, but Faith didn't know the kids had already been moved.
Sam: All right, then someone took them out of the building, someone that none of you ever saw. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Where are you going?
Jason: I got to go back to the church.
Sam: No, no, no, Jason, you need help. They're going to do forensic analysis, fingerprints, D.N.A. Reports, all that technology. I know you're not up on the law enforcement right now, but I think you need to trust them, for Michael.
Carly: Faith's going to recover. She's going to recover. And when she does, she's going to tell us where the kids are and we're going to bring them home safe.
Jason: I want to go back to the church.
Reese: There's nothing you can do there.
Jason: You said Faith was trying to get in one of the backrooms, right, Sonny?
Sonny: She was. I thought the kids were in there.
Jason: Well, maybe Faith thought that, too.
Sam: Jason thinks someone moved the kids without Faith's knowledge.
Reese: I'll call forensics and let them know we're on our way.
Carly: Jason, I think you're right. I know you are. Someone else has the kids.
Sonny: You weren't even there.
Jason: Were you wrong about the door?
Sonny: I don't know why Faith was trying to get into that door. Maybe she wanted to take a nap or maybe she was making a call she didn't want her people to hear. But it's worth looking into. We got -- it's not proof, but we got to look into it.
Reese: Ready to go?
Jason: I'll call you if I find anything.
Alexis: I'm Kristina's mother. She needs me. I know her better than anyone and I want to be there when they find her.
Ric: I agree.
Alexis: She's been with strangers the whole time -- and you can't do this. You agree?
Ric: Mm-hmm. As long as you agree to be examined by Dr. Meadows before you go.
Alexis: I was expecting a fight on this.
Ric: We have two children -- Kristina and the baby that you're carrying. We can't choose one over the other. We have to care about both of them at the same time.
Alexis: I promise I'll be careful.
Ric: You do or I'll break your head.
Alexis: Thank you for understanding and trusting me.
Steven: We were both to blame for losing that patient. You stepped forward and took sole responsibility, and I could've admitted what I did and taken my share of the blame. I didn't. And at the time, you didn't want me to. I guess in the end, we both learned something.
Steven: We're not infallible. I mean, the mistakes that we -- the mistakes that I made, well, they've taught me to be a more cautious, more thoughtful doctor. I don't just jump to conclusions anymore. I explore all the options, and I think in the end, it's actually made me better.
Rachel: So you're not sorry?
Steven: Yeah. I'm sorry that we lost that patient. I always will be. But I learned from it and I moved on, and I thought you felt the same.
Rachel: No, I learned something, too, Steven. You just can't trust everyone.
Steven: I never lied to you and I never asked you to cover for me.
Rachel: No, you're right, you didn't. I wanted to do it because of the way I felt about you and the things that I thought that we shared. But now I just realize that I was really naive. And I've learned that I will never let anybody take advantage of me again.
Elizabeth: Hey, Rach. I've got 25 minutes. You ready to go?
Elizabeth: Ok. Steven, you want to go to lunch with us?
Steven: No, I'm sorry, I'm going to get back to work.
Elizabeth: So are you guys reconnecting?
Rachel: Maybe a little. It's just so natural for us to talk about the past, you know? It's funny because I don't think Steven's changed at all.
Jax: I know that you're worried about Sonny's children. You're a little distracted. You don't really want to be here.
Courtney: I do, Jax, honest. I just wish Carly would call me.
Jax: Well, that's why I talked to Mac. I asked him to call us here if there was any news.
Courtney: Well, you thought of everything.
Jax: Well, I don't expect you to pretend that everything's ok, not when the people you love are in danger.
Courtney: I'll be fine, ok? I just -- I just need to unwind, you know?
Jax: Ok. You do that. I'm going to draw you a bath.
Courtney: I think the worst part is feeling so helpless. I want to do something to stop all this. I just don't know how.
