General Hospital Transcript Tuesday 3/22/05
Proofread By Kathy
Ric: Just listen to me. I'm going to go for help, all right? I'll be back soon. You're going to be all right.
Dillon: Hello? Somebody out there?
Ric: Yeah, over here, over here!
Dillon: What -- what happened?
Ric: No, somebody -- somebody ran into our car and then they took off. I have to get Alexis to a hospital.
Emily: I got wine and appetizers.
Lucky: Well, hey, let's -- why don't we just have a picnic right here, you know?
Emily: Like the one we had last summer when you took me to the park?
Lucky: A lot's changed since then.
Emily: You have no idea how many times I've thought of that day, Lucky, wondering what would've happened if I'd chosen you, and how things would be different if I had.
Lucky: You said you didn't feel the same way.
Emily: Not then. But like you said, so much has changed.
Sam: Hey. I understand that you have to find out why Michael died. But you cannot do it all in one night, Jason. You have to give yourself a break. Is there anything that I can do for you, anything at all?
Sam: Why don't we at least take a walk? It's a really nice night out. We could just get some fresh air.
Jason: No, I'm okay.
Sam: No, Jason, you're not.
Sonny: I don't want your help.
Reese: Ric and Alexis are missing. It's possible that they could've been kidnapped or worse by your enemies. You have to do something, Sonny.
Sonny: You telling me how to run my business?
Reese: I'm offering you advice. I happen to be pretty good at seeing the big picture.
Sonny: Why do you care so much what happens to me?
Reese: You've already lost one son. I don't want to see you lose another.
Carly: Is this a bad time?
Lucky: Em, we're friends, the best, and your future is still with Nikolas.
Emily: Yeah, though it's -- it's just getting harder for me to believe that.
Lucky: Listen, I know the past few months have been very difficult for you -- Nikolas' amnesia, his trial for murder, Helena, Connor, but -- I know it feels like one catastrophe after another, but you can't give up. You have to keep fighting for your marriage with Nikolas.
Emily: I know, I'm just -- I'm so tired, Lucky.
Lucky: Do you remember when you and Nikolas first got married? That incredible love, that overwhelming feeling that you had when you and Nikolas first got married?
Emily: Yeah. Yeah, I thought my heart would burst with love and happiness.
Lucky: And that love is going to get you through. It's going to give you the courage to overcome any obstacle, no matter how intense it may be. You and Nikolas, you belong together, and don't you ever forget that.
Lucky: Don't ever forget it.
Sam: I know that your heart is broken about Michael, but please, Jason, please let me help you get through this.
Jason: There's nothing you can do.
Sam: I'll be upstairs. Just call me if you need anything.
Jason: Sam. Just don't go.
Jason: Just stay with me.
Ric: That's it, all right. Easy, easy. Watch --
Paramedic: Any pre-existing conditions?
Ric: She's pregnant. My wife and baby going to be all right?
Paramedic: We won't know until we get to the hospital.
Ric: All right, I'm riding with you. Thanks, guys, for your help.
Ofc. Murphy: Did you see the car that hit them?
Dillon: Huh? No, we parked about a half-mile down the road at the turnout and we were walking up and we heard Ric Lansing calling for help.
Ofc. Murphy: Did you see anything suspicious on the road?
Dillon: Um --
Georgie: No, nothing.
Ofc. Murphy: Any details you can remember, any at all?
Dillon: No, that's really it. I'm just glad that we got here, you know?
Georgie: Listen, would it be okay if we went to the hospital? I really want to make sure Alexis is okay.
Ofc. Murphy: Give me a minute. I'm sure your father will want to ask you some questions.
Reese: Sonny's enemies know that he's grieving for Michael. They could be organizing to move against him.
Carly: By kidnapping Ric and Alexis?
Reese: Ric is Sonny's brother. Alexis is the mother of his child. It's certainly a place to start.
Carly: Do you have any proof?
Reese: At this point, it's just a theory.
Carly: Oh. Like Jason helping Sam kidnap Kristina, or Lorenzo setting up Faith to be shot?
Reese: All right, why don't we just stay in the present here, okay? Ric and Alexis are gone and we have to do what we can --
Carly: Sonny, can I speak to you in private for a minute?
Sonny: Uh -- can you give us a minute?
Carly: Since when do you start trusting a federal agent?
Sonny: I know what I'm doing, Carly. Agent Marshallís, you know, she's trying to help.
Carly: Yeah, how can you be sure?
Sonny: Well, that's what I'm trying to find out, you know? Maybe, I don't know, it could be that she, you know, saw what I went through with Michael and, I don't know, she feels bad.
Carly: Oh, Sonny.
Carly: Agent Marshall did everything she could to help bring the children back, and it was great -- right? And I already thanked her for bringing Morgan back to us, but this kidnapping is over. And trusting her right now is going to be the biggest mistake that you could ever make, because you say one wrong thing, you give her one piece of information that she can use against you and she is going to put you in prison for the rest of your life.
Sam: I ordered some takeout. Is there anything else that you need?
Jason: Just having you close makes me feel better.
Sam: You know, that could possibly be the best compliment anyone has ever given me. Which is good, because if you suddenly started flattering me and telling me really romantic things, I'd probably run for the door because I wouldn't want to disappoint you in any way.
Jason: Why would you disappoint me?
Sam: We could make a list. But it -- it wouldn't be accurate. Because you never make me feel like I'm not good enough. Jason, with you, I feel like I can be myself and it's okay, and there's a comfort in that. It's like this calmness inside that no one can take away from me, and I just wish for a second that I could give you a part of what you've given me.
Jason: Yeah? What? All right, I'll take care of it. I'm sorry, I got to go. There's something, a business problem.
Carly: Sonny, your life has been shattered. Reese knows that you're vulnerable and she is going to use it to put you away.
Sonny: Agent Marshall came here because Alcazar told her that Alexis and Ric could've been kidnapped or even killed. Now, she could've stayed out of it, but for whatever reason, she didn't.
Carly: She wants to catch you with your guard down.
Sonny: That's not going to happen.
Carly: You aren't going to see it coming because Agent Marshall is going to pretend to be your friend. She's going to convince you that she cares about you, and then she is going to ask you all kinds of questions about your operation. You're not going to want to tell her, Sonny, I know that, but she's going to promise you it is the only way that she can protect you, the only way she can help you, and then she is going to use exactly what you tell her to put you away.
Sonny: First of all, Agent Marshall, you know, did care about finding Michael, and she put herself on the line to do it.
Carly: Because she wanted -- Sonny, don't you see this? She wanted you to have trust in her. You fell for it. You are one of the most perceptive men that I have ever met, and you are not yourself right now. You're making a big mistake.
Reese: Excuse me, Sonny, Carly. Ric and Alexis have been the victims of a hit-and-run. Alexis is injured, but she's still alive. Ric seems to be unharmed. They're both on their way to General Hospital.
Sonny: Any word who hit them?
Reese: None so far.
Sonny: Okay. Armando Sandoval just got out of prison --
Sonny: Three months ago. Ric got him convicted. The Sandovals have been pressuring me. Maybe they had something to do with it.
Reese: Right, well, I read the Sandoval file and it's -- I mean, he's definitely capable of setting this thing up.
Carly: Whoa. What are you talking about? This is a hit-and-run accident. It's not a conspiracy.
Reese: Look, Carly, the Sandoval crime family has been moving into this city, and it just makes sense that they would target Sonny's family.
Carly: Some guy probably left the bar with too many drinks under his belt. He hit Ric's car, he didn't want to get caught and have his license taken away, so he left, he took off. End of story.
Reese: Well, I hope you're right, Carly, but Sonny can't take the chance that you're not.
Carly: Okay, you know what; I'm not getting involved in this. I'm not. Agent Marshall, if Sonny's enemies are after him, then I really do hope that you can stop them. Morgan left his turtle at home, and when he wakes up, he's going to want it. I'm going to get it.
Sonny: Wait a minute, Carly. Listen, Carly's leaving to her apartment, okay? I want you to drive her there. You make sure nothing happens. Stay with her, whatever you got to do. Right now. I'd just feel a lot better if you were protected.
Carly: Sonny, you're the one who needs to be protected.
Reese: Okay, I'm going to head over to the scene of the hit-and-run. If there's any evidence that this thing is planned, I'm going to find it.
Ric: Hmm. Thanks.
Ric: What is it?
Elizabeth: Herbal tea. It's supposed to help calm you.
Ric: I just want to hear that Alexis and the baby are all right. Dr. Quartermaine, how -- how is Alexis?
Monica: Well, she's still unconscious, and if she doesn't wake up soon, we're going to take her down for a cat scan.
Ric: And the baby?
Bobbie: Dr. Meadows did a prelim exam, but we won't know anything until the tests are back.
Ric: How long?
Bobbie: I can make sure they put a rush on it.
Monica: You can go in and sit with her if you want.
Ric: Thank you.
Ric: I know you're going to be all right. I mean, something as little as a car accident can't stop the force of nature that is Alexis Davis. You know, you're not always the best listener, so -- um -- while I have the floor, there's a couple of things that I'd like to say to you. I am so grateful to you for giving me a family -- Kristina, this child that's inside of you. I got to tell you, Alexis, since the day that I married you, you have been a constant surprise to me. I admire you. I -- I respect you.
Ric: I love you. I love you, Alexis, and I need you. So, just do me a favor, okay? Come back as soon as you can.
Ric: Alexis? Hey. How you feeling?
Alexis: We're in the car.
Alexis: Somebody hit us. Is the baby okay?
Emily: Oh! No! Oh, God.
Lucky: Hey, are you all right? Hey.
Emily: Yeah, I was -- oh, I was just having another nightmare.
Lucky: Do you want to tell me about it?
Emily: I was dreaming about Nikolas. We were happy, in love. And then these other images started coming in.
Lucky: Images of what?
Emily: I don't remember specifics, but they were awful.
Lucky: Hey, Em, it was only a dream. You don't have to think about it anymore.
Emily: No, yeah, right, I know. Guess I owe you an apology.
Lucky: For what?
Emily: Making a fool out of myself by coming on to you.
Lucky: Oh -- what are you talking about?
Emily: Oh, come on, Lucky. You're being polite. You always are.
Lucky: You were imagining what might've been. We all do it, and now you're just working through it out loud.
Emily: I keep asking myself the same questions over and over. What if Nikolas hadn't had that accident and wound up at Maryís? What if he hadn't gone to prison? What if I hadn't asked Connor Bishop to impersonate Nikolas?
Lucky: Those are questions without answers. All right, we just -- we can't erase all the bad things that happen to us. We can face them and move on.
Ric: Well, your test results are going to be in soon. Until then, I think it's very important that you stay in bed.
Alexis: And what am I supposed to do while I'm here? I want to just hear if the baby's okay or not.
Ric: Could always hold my hand and we can wait together.
Alexis: Oh, I don't know why I did this to myself for.
Ric: You didn't do anything to yourself.
Alexis: Yes, I did. I made an effort to be spontaneous, and look what happened.
Ric: No, don't beat yourself up. Spontaneity looked pretty good on you.
Alexis: The price is too high. What if we lose the baby?
Ric: No, listen to me. Listen, this baby, our baby is a fighter. You know, he or she toughed out the first few weeks, and I think that's exactly what's going to happen now.
Monica: Well, I have your test results. The baby is fine.
Alexis: Oh, thank God.
Ric: Oh, see, see? I told you.
Monica: Unfortunately, there is a problem with Alexis.
Ofc. Murphy: Yeah?
Georgie: Just great. My mom and I were supposed to talk to Mac tonight about me dating you. Now he's going to find out from one of his officers.
Dillon: Well, not necessarily. I mean, you know, I'm making a film, so we could say that we were up here scouting locations for that, you know?
Georgie: At night?
Dillon: Yes, because it's a horror film, right, so we need ambiance.
Georgie: Right. No, no, wrong.
Dillon: What? No?
Georgie: Dillon, Mac is going to know that we were up here for one thing -- to make out at Inspiration Point.
Dillon: Wait a second, is that why you think I brought you up here?
Georgie: Well, it's the truth, isn't it?
Dillon: Well, no, actually. I mean, yeah, I'm always up for that, but that's -- I brought you here for another reason tonight. Um -- this is the quarter that I almost slipped into the pay phone at Kellyís the day that we first met.
Georgie: You mean --
Georgie: When I kissed you and asked you to pretend to be my boyfriend?
Dillon: Yeah, I -- I had a feeling that something special happened to me that day, and so I saved this, and I guess I was right. I know it's a little corny, but --
Georgie: No --
Dillon: No, no, I made it into a necklace, as you can see, and I'd really be honored if you wanted to wear it sometime.
Georgie: Yeah. Dillon, this is -- this is the sweetest thing.
Dillon: Well, it's not exactly high-end jewelry, but I --
Georgie: Dillon --
Dillon: Hmm. Okay.
Georgie: It is -- it is all I've ever wanted, and so are you.
Ofc. Murphy: Your dad left orders not to be disturbed, so you two can go. I'll talk to him in the morning.
Georgie: Or --
Georgie: Or I could just, you know, talk to him when I get home?
Ofc. Murphy: You mean and leave out the part about you being here with Dillon?
Dillon: Wait a minute. How do you know that we're not supposed to be together?
Ofc. Murphy: I have a teenage brother. Mac and I kind of talk every morning.
Georgie: Oh. Well, or maybe -- maybe you could just forget you saw us.
Ofc. Murphy: Your names are on the statement. I can't change that. On the other hand, I can probably keep Mac from seeing it.
Georgie: Thank you! And thank --
Dillon: Oh, thank you so -- you know what, you are on my Oscar wish thing. I --
Georgie: His speech.
Dillon: Right at the beginning, not at the end, you know, when the credits come on.
Georgie: Dillon --
Dillon: I'm going to shut up now.
Georgie: Thank you.
Dillon: Thank you so much. Thank you.
Reese: Officer Murphy.
Ofc. Murphy: Yeah?
Reese: We need to determine if this was an accident or not, so why don't you get some measurements of the other tire tracks.
Ofc. Murphy: Okay.
Reese: And also I'm going to need a diagram of this entire area. Thank you.
John: Hey, you can forget the legwork, Agent Marshall. This was a premeditated hit ordered by Sonny Corinthos.
Carly: Thanks for coming.
Lorenzo: Yeah. Surprised to get your call. I thought you were spending the night at Sonny's.
Carly: I am. I just -- I wanted to see you first. Agent marshal said that you told her that Ric and Alexis had disappeared. I mean, you must have known that she would go to Sonnyís.
Lorenzo: Yes. I was trying to help.
Carly: Is that all? I mean, you must have known that she was going to go run interference. Is that what you wanted, so you'd be sure that Sonny and I didn't drift back together?
Jason: The Sandovals just hit us hard. Two shipments were hijacked.
Sonny: Anybody hurt?
Jason: No, nothing serious. The safe in the B street warehouse was also hit. 30,000 in cash, no books.
Sonny: They know I let Luke go. They think I'm vulnerable. They want to keep me that way. Faith showed them that the way to get to me is through my family.
Jason: Something else happen?
Sonny: Yeah. Somebody tried to kill Ric and Alexis, hit-and-run. That's only the start.
Man: This one's for Sonny!
Second man: You tell him he's next.
Sam: Hey, hey! Get away from him! Get away from him! This man is Sonny Corinthos' father! Leave now or he's going to kill you for this!
Monica: You have a heart murmur.
Alexis: What -- what does that mean exactly?
Monica: Well, pregnancy increases the blood flow, and the heart has to work a little harder to circulate that blood, so you may experience some heart palpitations.
Ric: Okay, but what -- is that life-threatening? I mean is it --
Monica: No. No.
Alexis: Will it affect the baby?
Monica: No. But I want to keep you overnight for observation.
Alexis: Uh -- can I go to work when I'm feeling a little better? That's a big stress-reliever for me.
Ric: Alexis --
Monica: The best thing you can do for yourself is not to worry, Alexis. You are fine, the baby is fine, and there's no reason in the world that you both can't stay that way, okay?
Ric: Thank you.
Alexis: Thanks, Monica.
Ric: I'll see you out.
Alexis: She said I didn't have to stay in bed, which is good because that's more stressful than anything else.
Ric: No, I still think you need to rest, and I reserve the right to take you to bed anytime I feel that you're not.
Ric: Well, I think with a little creativity, we can both enjoy some bed rest. You know what, not tonight. I want you to sleep.
Alexis: I'll miss you.
Ric: I'll miss you, too.
Alexis: I want to call Kristina.
Alexis: Thank you.
Alexis: Hey, Viola. We were in a car accident.
Viola: Oh, my gosh.
Alexis: I'm sorry. I just have to stay overnight, and I'm fine. I just wanted to say good night to Kristina.
Viola: She's at her fatherís.
Viola: When you didn't come home on time, I called Mr. Corinthos, so he had Kristina picked up. He felt Kristina would be safer at his place.
John: The hit-and-run driver wanted Lansing and his wife to go off that cliff. With them dead, Sonny gets custody of Kristina.
Reese: Sonny wouldn't murder his child's mother.
John: The man has no conscience. He'll do whatever it takes to get what he wants.
Reese: Look, I know that you want Sonny behind bars, but you can't do it with phony accusations. No, Sonny Corinthos did not order this hit-and-run.
John: And why's that? Because he denied it?
Reese: I've spent a lot of time with him, John. He's completely shattered over the loss of his son.
John: Yeah, well, whatever happened here tonight cannot be a coincidence.
Reese: I agree. Sonny's enemies believe he's vulnerable. I think that they went after Ric and Alexis to provoke Sonny into a war he just doesn't want.
John: All right, well, if that's the case, then you realize the opportunity this creates?
John: Sonny retaliates, you get the chance you need to take him down. That is, of course, if you're still capable of doing your job.
Reese: What's that supposed to mean?
John: That you're working Sonny and you're not getting emotionally involved.
Lorenzo: I thought you understood. I'm here to help, not take advantage.
Carly: So why did you tell Reese about Ric and Alexis?
Lorenzo: Sonny's enemies know he's vulnerable. Going after Ric and Alexis, that could be the first step to drive him out of Port Charles or to kill him.
Carly: Why do you care what happens to Sonny?
Lorenzo: Because when Sonny's a target, so are you and Morgan, and I'm going to do everything in my power to make sure that the two of you don't get hurt.
Sonny: We need to eliminate the Sandovals -- all of them at once, with no warning.
Jason: Agent Marshall is watching our every move. If we make a move against the Sandovals right now, she's going to use it to put you away.
Sonny: She's not going to have any evidence. We need to set this up carefully so it doesn't get traced back to us.
Jason: I'll start working on it right away.
Sonny: They're going to be the example, Jason. The Sandovals need to know that anybody who touches my family -- what happened to Michael can never happen again.
Sam: I am warning you, get out now!
Man: Give me that.
Sam: Now, give me -- stop it!
Man: Tell me, Jason Morgan know his girlfriend's out on the street looking for a fight?
Sam: If you know I'm Jasonís girlfriend, you know that he's going to kill you for this. Now let go of me. Let go!
Man: What do you want to do with her?
Second man: In there.
Sam: No! Let go of me! No, get off -- no! Get off!
Man: Listen, you're going to help us send a message to Sonny Corinthos, honey.
Carly: I am sorry, Lorenzo. It's just hard for me to know who my friends are anymore.
Lorenzo: It's all right. It's over. The important thing is keeping you and Morgan safe.
Carly: You know, that hit-and-run, it was an accident. It was not an attack.
Lorenzo: That's what you want it to be, Carly, because your life will be easier if Sonny doesn't go to war, but I deal in the world he lives in. This was only the first step.
Carly: You know what -- you and Sonny, you can live in fear all you want. I've had enough, Lorenzo. I don't want Morgan growing up in this.
Lorenzo: Well, you might not have a choice.
Carly: Then you don't know me as well as you might think.
Lorenzo: Where are you going?
Carly: I'm going to get my son and I'm bringing him home to be with me, where he belongs.
Lorenzo: He's a lot safer with Sonny than he is here.
Carly: You know what, I don't want him there. He's been through enough already, Lorenzo. He doesn't need to be in a house full of paranoia, surrounded by guards.
Lorenzo: And what if you're wrong? What if Morgan gets hurt because you couldn't admit that he was in danger?
Alexis: I want you to go pick up Kristina at Sonny's house and bring her home.
Ric: No, Alexis, she's already sleeping. I'll pick her up in the morning.
Alexis: No, no, I don't want her there alone.
Ric: Sonny has lost one child already. He's not going to let this happen again.
Alexis: The last time she was there, she was taken out of his house. You and I may have been targets tonight. I don't want that to happen to her. You have to go get her.
Ric: Alexis, what happened to us tonight was an accident.
Alexis: Do you really believe that? Are you so sure, you're so positive that you're willing to risk her life?
Ric: Kristina's life is not at risk, okay? Sonny's got that place patrolled like a fortress. It's a lot safer than our apartment is.
Alexis: You really believe that?
Ric: Yes, yes, I do, okay? Now I want you to get some sleep, all right? Good night.
Ric: Listen to me, when I was pulling you out of that car tonight and I thought that you might be seriously hurt, it made me realize all over again how much you do mean to me. You have completely changed my life.
Alexis: Thank you for saving me. Thank you for loving me. I'm a very lucky woman, and I know that.
Ric: All right. I'll see you later. Get some rest.
Alexis: Okay, I will.
Reese: So Ric and Alexis were parked at the edge of a bluff when the hit-and-run driver rammed into them, so it's a miracle that they didn't just go over the side.
Sonny: Any way it could've been an accident?
Reese: Well, the roads are dark. Anything is possible. I've got forensics down there now looking for evidence. We found some tire tracks, we made an impression of them, so, you know, maybe that'll lead to something.
Sonny: What about the Sandovals?
Reese: We're checking on them now.
Sonny: Thank you. Anything else you can tell me, just let me know.
Reese: There is something you could do for me, Sonny. Be honest with me, okay, just so I don't have to waste any more time trying to solve this thing here. The one person with an obvious motive for wanting Ric and Alexis dead is you, and, well, it gets you sole custody of Kristina and it eliminates the district attorney.
Sonny: Are you accusing me of putting a hit on my brother and the mother of my child?
Reese: In my heart, Sonny, I don't believe you could do that.
Sam: Let go. Mike! Get off! Get your hands off of me!
Man: She's a spunky one, isn't she?
Second man: Yeah, see, she can really do some damage. Ugh!
Sam: Get off!
Man: She's getting away!
Sam: Get off of me! No. No! No! Get off!
Sam: Mike! Mike!
Man: See what you've done? You've woken up Sonny's father. Pleasant dreams.
Second man: You know what, that's enough fooling around. It's time to send that message!
Sam: No. No. You are not going to touch me.
Ric: Carly. Hey.
Carly: Hey. How's Alexis?
Ric: Oh, she and the baby are fine, thanks. They want her to stay here for observation, but other than that, there's no problems.
Carly: Did you by any chance see who hit you?
Carly: No? Because you know there's some question on whether this accident was accidental.
Ric: Yeah, I know. Alexis has herself convinced that Sonny's enemies are coming after her.
Carly: Yeah, and you don't believe it?
Ric: Carly, if Sonny's enemies did want Alexis and me dead, then they would've come back to finish the job. These people play for keeps. I don't think I have to remind you of that.
Sonny: Why do you want to believe me?
Reese: Because of what I saw during the kidnapping. A man who loves his children as deeply as you do -- he could never harm his child's mother.
Alexis: That's where you may be wrong, Agent Marshall. Sonny would do and has done anything to hold on to Kristina, even if it means coming after me.
Jason: Sam. Sam, are you here?
Sam: Last chance. Get out while you can. No? Huh? Huh? No, get off! Get off me. Let go! Let go!
Man: Fun's over, sweetie.
Emily: Get away from her!
Man: No problem.
Emily: Let her go.
Man: Don't shoot.
Sam: Emily, don't do it.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Sonny: You honestly think I tried to have you killed?
Reese: They could've been targeting Ric because he's Sonny's brother.
Lucky: I think it's about time that I leave Wyndemere. I think I'm only making things worse for Emily.
Jason: Emily, put the gun down.
