Tracy: What happened to the front end of your car?

Alan: I had an accident.

Tracy: Were you hurt?

Alan: Um -- it was dark. There was a car parked in the middle of nowhere. I didn't see it.

Tracy: Was anybody in it?

Dillon: Did this happen at Inspiration Point, by any chance?

Tracy: What do you know about it?

Dillon: I think Uncle Alan almost killed Alexis Davis.

Ric: You got a visitor. Go.

Alexis: Hi!

Ric: Go, go, go, go.

Alexis: Hi!

Ric: One, two, three. That's it.

Alexis: How are you? Is that balloon for me?

Ric: Yeah. Kristina -- it usually cheers her up when she has a balloon, and she thought --

[Alexis laughs]

Ric: It might do the same for you.

Alexis: Aw.

Ric: Your daughter missed you.

Alexis: I missed her, too. And I miss being home.

Mike: Well, hey, princess.

Courtney: What is she doing here?

Rachel: Your dad's just quite a charmer. He's been telling me all sorts of stories -- all about you.

Sam: You know, this looks like a kid's paradise. It's beautiful.

Carly: Yeah. Sonny is going to present the check at the groundbreaking ceremony. He's been busy in meetings all morning. I got to go check the guest list with him.

Jason: Don't go up there.

Courtney: You should be resting.

Mike: Hey, honey, I'm -- I'm thrilled that Rachelís moved in with you. After what happened at the diner, I think it's -- I think it's great that you're not alone.

Courtney: But I'm not alone, Dad. I have Jax.

Mike: Yeah, but he can't always be there, and Rachel is a great backup.

Rachel: Well, I have to go finish my rounds. Drink up, Mike. It is very important that you stay hydrated.

Mike: Thank you.

Courtney: You know, Dad, I'm -- I'm going to get you some bottled water, okay?

Mike: Sweetheart, you really don't have to.

Courtney: Yeah, it's okay.

Mike: But --

Courtney: Okay. You stay away from my father.

Rachel: He's a patient, I'm a doctor.

Courtney: You're a pediatrician.

Rachel: Okay. I wanted to get to know Mike better. It's just that you and I are so close I feel like he's like family.

Courtney: Okay, Rachel, stop forcing your way into my life.

Rachel: Why are you being so hostile?

Courtney: You tried to kill Jax!

Rachel: I was just making sure that you kept your mouth shut about A.J.

Courtney: Yeah, you killed A.J. -- that's what really happened.

Rachel: And I thought we agreed to put that behind us.

Courtney: Oh, my God. You know, you -- you claim to be sorry, you ask for my sympathy, and now you're threatening my father? I'm -- I'm sick of you making a mess of my life, Rachel. I want you to stay away from the people that I love.

Jax: Courtney? I think it's time you stopped blaming Rachel for all your problems.

Tracy: All right, we have family business to discuss.

Alan: It's fine, Tracy. Everybody's going to know the truth soon enough.

Georgie: Wait, so you did hit Ric and Alexis --

Tracy: Shut up!

Alan: The roads were pitch-black. I didn't know anybody was in the car.

Dillon: Yeah, you didn't even stop to check, either.

Alan: I panicked!

Dillon: You knew that whoever you hit in that car was stranded, miles from town! You knew that.

Tracy: What were you doing out there, anyway?

Alan: I just needed to get away. I decided to go to Jaxís new hotel. You know, the one that they named after A.J.'s murderer?

Georgie: Courtney did not murder A.J.!

Tracy: Oh, my God, shut up!

Dillon: Mom, stop it!

Tracy: We will take one crisis at a time. You were at the Metro Court -- in the bar, I presume?

Alan: Yes, in the bar. I had that first drink in my hand before I even knew it. After that I lost count.

Tracy: Commemorating your son by indulging in his greatest weakness?

Alan: I am not proud of what I've done. I am not proud of the way I failed my son. I did it, okay? Then I drove up to the top of the cliff with the windows open, and I thought I was going to be able to sleep it off. But when I got near the top I slammed into a parked car.

Dillon: Yeah, and you almost pushed Alexis and Ric over the embankment.

Tracy: But he didn't, did he?

Dillon: No, he didn't, but Alexis was sent to the hospital in an ambulance.

Georgie: And she's pregnant!

Alan: Is the baby okay?

Tracy: Little late to worry about that.

Alan: I am worried, I have been worried. I'm going to do the right thing. I'm going to go to the police and tell them what happened.

Tracy: No, you're not. We're going to handle this ourselves.

Dillon: The only way to handle this ourselves is to get Justus down here right now.

Tracy: We're going to handle it by getting rid of the evidence, and you, my young son, are going to help.

Ric: So how are you feeling?

Alexis: Much better.

Ric: Look, Kristina was fine when I picked her up this morning.

Alexis: Now is not the time to insist that she was perfectly safe.

Ric: The only child that was at risk yesterday was the child that you're carrying.

Alexis: I understand, and I will be careful.

Ric: Oh, good. Make sure you put "careful" on your schedule the next six months, won't you? Meanwhile, you can ignore the fact that you have a heart condition and you're supposed to avoid stress.

Alexis: I'm very well aware of my heart condition, as well.

Ric: Monica has asked you to take it easy, and I think the best way for you to do that is to avoid tension with Sonny. You wanted Kristina at his house last night, and now she's here with you, okay? Can we just leave it at that?

Alexis: I intend to take care of myself, I intend to take care of this baby that I'm carrying, and I intend to take care of my daughter. And Sonny is an ongoing threat to her well-being, and I'm going to protect her.

Jason: You can't go up there right now.

Carly: What's going on? Are you and Sonny in trouble?

Jason: It's business.

Max: Jason, I need to see you at the gate right now.

Jason: Okay.

[Door closes]

Carly: Okay, this has the potential to be very bad.

Sam: Carly, I'm sure it's being handled.

Carly: Yeah, by two guys who are grieving so badly they can't think straight? You've been attacked, and even if Jason's not showing it, he's in agony.

Sam: Then help him, okay? Let Jason do his job, which is to protect your family. And let's do what he asked us to do and focus on the playground. I mean, Carly, that's what's important today.

Enzo: Mr. Corinthos isn't seeing visitors today.

Jason: Enzo, it's okay. I'm going to take care of this. Thanks.

Reese: I need to speak with Sonny.

Jason: Well, Sonny's busy.

Reese: Well, just tell him I'm here. Sonny knows he can trust me.

Jason: Like I said, he's busy.

Reese: Oh, I get it. Now that the kidnapping is over, suddenly I'm the enemy, the fed that's out to bust Sonny? Well, it's not true, Jason. I'm trying to protect him.

Brook Lynn: So maybe I'd better rethink this whole music academy thing, right, because by the way things are going in my physics class, I won't even make it into a regular college.

Diego: It was just one test, okay? You'll do better next time, and I'll help you study. How's that?

Brook Lynn: Really?

Diego: Yeah.

Brook Lynn: You know what? You didn't even tell me what you got.

Diego: Don't worry about it.

Brook Lynn: Okay.

Diego: Oh -- oy.

Brook Lynn: What, a 95? Are you kidding me?

Diego: It doesn't --

Brook Lynn: What are you, a rocket scientist?

Diego: No, no. It's just science is easy for me, okay, but it doesn't matter.

Brook Lynn: You know what? I don't understand because when it comes to numbers, for some reason I'm doomed. But my ma, she's this genius, right? It's like she has a calculator in her head, and I can't --

Diego: It can't be -- okay, it can't be that bad? Can I please take a look at this?

Brook Lynn: No, that's not it.

Diego: Oh, is this poetry or something?

Brook Lynn: No, it's a song I'm writing.

Diego: Well, let me see how far you've got.

Brook Lynn: Diego, come on, give it back.

Diego: I love your music.

Brook Lynn: I know. I just want it to be perfect. Come on.

Diego: Why not?

Brook Lynn: Because it's about you.

Diego: Even better.

Bridget: Hey --

Diego: Let me see it.

Bridget: If you're going to climb on each other, do it outside.

Brook Lynn: Um -- excuse me?

Diego: Okay, hey, can you take it easy? We're just here to eat. Can we have some water, please?

Bridget: Since I'm your servant and all.

Brook Lynn: What was that all about?

Diego: Uh --

Dillon: Diego? I need your help.

Diego: What kind of help?

Georgie: Just listen.

Dillon: Somebody I care about got into trouble last night. It's my Uncle Alan. He got into a car accident and he didn't stick around to see if everybody was okay.

Georgie: He hit Ric Lansingís car and sent Alexis Davis to the hospital.

Dillon: And so now all of a sudden, it's incumbent upon me to cover it up.

Tracy: Wearing out a hole in the carpet isn't going to solve your problems.

Alan: I have a moral responsibility.

Tracy: Oh, please. When did you acquire a set of morals?

Alan: I know the difference between right and wrong.

Tracy: What about the difference between freedom and incarceration? Do you really think the district attorney is going to forgive you for almost killing him and his wife?

Alan: I checked. Alexis is fine.

Tracy: Wake up, Alan! You were drunk! They can charge you with criminal negligence, or how about vehicular assault?

Alan: Why are you hounding me like this?

Alan: Since when?

Tracy: Alan, you made a catastrophic mistake. I'm trying to protect you. Now, there -- there is something you could do for me to pay me back.

Carly: That is the third time you've looked at the clock. You're worried about Jason. You can admit it.

Sam: Actually, I was thinking when people would be showing up at the playground. It's got to be pretty soon.

Carly: Look, I know the drill. I have lived it for years, Sam. You ignore everything that's going on around you. If you're scared, don't show it, and above all else, don't ask any questions. Right now you're doing a really good job, but it's an act.

Sam: Jason has been good to me. I love him, and I am respecting his wishes.

Carly: Right, even if it means he gets killed?

Sam: You know what, Carly? This is his job. Accepting it is the price to pay for being with him.

Carly: Yeah, and before Michael died I really believed there was a way to manage all this danger. Things might get bad, but no one that I loved was actually going to die. And now that I lost him in a horrible and violent death, my son, I know the truth. We are all vulnerable, and that includes Jason.

Reese: If I wanted to send Sonny to prison, I had a good start. You read my report on the kidnapping. I left out information that could've incriminated Sonny.

Jason: You're a kidnap specialist. Why haven't you been reassigned?

Reese: The bureau thinks I'm more valuable here.

Jason: Exactly, because you've been close to Sonny.

Reese: Probably. But technically, my assignment is to investigate criminal activity and possible violations of the Rico Act. So if Sonny were just to run a legal business, he would have nothing to worry about.

Jason: Sonny is a coffee importer.

Reese: All right. Sonny is a danger to himself, and you work for him and you're supposed to protect him. So if he moves against the Sandoval crime family, you're both going to prison.

Jason: Sonny is in mourning. He's preparing for the groundbreaking on a new playground he's giving the city in Michaelís memory. That's what he's busy with. That's why he can't talk to you.

Jax: Rachel is a doctor and your friend. You should thank her for checking in on your father.

Courtney: Jax --

Jax: Courtney is obviously very worried about Mike. She didn't mean to take it out on you.

Rachel: I understand. No harm done. I will just check on Mike tomorrow.

Jax: Okay.

Courtney: Jax, I would really appreciate it if you would stay out of things that you don't understand.

Jax: Just calm down, calm down. I was playing her. I think that Rachel is trying to get between us, and I wanted her to think it's working.

Courtney: Why?

Jax: Because the best way to figure out what she's after is to let her think she's about to get it.

Courtney: Jax, you have to promise me that you're going to stay away from Rachel because she's not the person I thought she was.

Jax: Oh, I agree. She's got some kind of agenda. I'm going to find out what it is.

Jax: Rachel? You have a minute?

Rachel: Did you follow me here?

Jax: I thought that you might stop in for coffee after your rounds.

Rachel: If this is about what Courtney said --

Jax: That's what I wanted to talk to you about. She was upset at me because I defended you.

Rachel: Well, look, just forget about it. I mean, her nephew just died, her father was attacked. She's going to be on edge.

Jax: No, I think this is something entirely different.

Rachel: I don't understand.

Jax: Can I be completely honest with you?

Rachel: Of course. I mean, I find that a very appealing and unusual characteristic in a man.

Jax: Courtney has been feeling insecure lately because she's jealous of you.

Rachel: Why?

Jax: I mean, it's only natural. You know, Courtney sees me with a beautiful woman, she gets defensive.

Rachel: But, Jax, you're not the kind of man to stray.

Jax: Yeah, well, nevertheless, you're beautiful, you're smart. You can't blame Courtney for being insecure -- and, please, don't hold it against her. And we will try to keep you out of our personal drama from now on, okay?

Rachel: Well, I was just about to order some food, maybe some French fries?

Jax: Fries are good here.

Rachel: Well, it's no fun to sit alone. Why don't you sit down and join me.

Jax: Never been able to resist temptation. Why not.

Georgie: The guys still are not back.

Brook Lynn: Don't freak out, Georgie. I mean, seriously, they're fine.

Georgie: You know what? Dillon was against this whole "ditching Alanís car" thing when Tracy brought it up, so --

brook Lynn: If he was, then why did he agree to it?

Georgie: I don't know. Tracy pulled the whole "you're a Quartermaine whether you like it or not" speech. It was stupid.

Brook Lynn: Yeah, look -- um -- guilt's pretty much a way of life in my family. Georgie, if you're going to be with Dillon, you probably should get used to it.

[Engine runs]

Diego: Okay, stop, stop. Are you sure you want to dump this car? I'm saying all it needs is a little body work, and I can fix it.

[Engine turns off]

Dillon: Dude, it's going to the bottom of that lake bed like I said, okay?

Diego: I'm just saying it's a waste of a good car.

Dillon: Can we do this, please?

Diego: Oh, since when do I take orders from you?

Dillon: How about since I helped you find your mom in Mexico? You know how long Georgie and I couldn't see each other because of you?

Diego: All right, all right. Relax, man, I was just messing with you.

Dillon: I'm sorry, I'm just not in the mood. The only reason I'm doing this is because my mother is forcing me.

Diego: Oy. It's a pretty steep drop.

Dillon: Yeah, I mean, it's going to hit something on the way down. The front end's got to hit.

Diego: All right. All right. Put the car in neutral and let's push it. Better yet --

Dillon: Hey -- on three. Three --

Diego: One -- let go.

[Car crashes]

Diego: Oh. Well, there it is, man -- scrap.

Dillon: Thanks.

Diego: Yeah, no problem.

[Diego laughs]

Diego: Relax, I got you! I got you. You know, it's nice to see someone else get into trouble.

[Sam groans]

Jason: Wait -- whoa, whoa, whoa. Let me help you.

Sam: Hey. I got it.

Jason: Your bruises bothering you?

Sam: No. No, they're healing. It's getting better. Thank you.

Jason: Well, I don't want you to push yourself too hard.

Sam: Says the man who checked out of the hospital days before he was supposed to? Okay. Okay.

Jason: Did Carly leave?

Sam: Yes, she did. She is worried about you and Sonny, and she knows that if she asks any questions, it'll only cause a fight, so she's going to focus her attention on the playground dedication, just as I plan to.

Jason: Okay, good. Thank you for helping out.

Sam: With the playground or with Carly?

Jason: Both.

Sam: I like helping you, Jason. I mean, I will help you -- as much as you let me, anyway. You know, I was sitting here earlier, and I just kind of realized something -- that I really want to cherish every moment that I have with you. You know, life is too short, and we just -- we got to make our time together count, and every moment that we have together, we just got to make it count. But I need you to promise me something.

Jason: What?

Sam: Take care of yourself, okay? I am never going to fight your work, ever, but I am counting on you to be around for a very long time. Okay?

Reese: Ric? We have a major situation here. I assume you already know that Sonny is planning a full-fledged war with the Sandovals.

Ric: Come here. Are you asking my office for backup or do you want me to stay away?

Reese: No, I want you to intervene, but not as the district attorney. As Sonny's brother.

Ric: Agent Marshall, you are barking up the wrong tree there. Sonny does not want to hear what I have to say.

Reese: Make him. He's grieving for his child, and no matter how rational he may seem, he's not thinking clearly.

Ric: What do you suspect is about to happen?

Reese: The Sandovals hit Kellyís last night. They roughed up Mike and knocked him unconscious, and -- and then they went after Sam McCall.

Ric: Yeah, that's to provoke Sonny.

Reese: Right. And if Sonny retaliates, he's going to be walking right into a trap. The Sandovals will be waiting for him. And Durant knows something is up, too, and he's willing just to sit back and watch this whole thing happen.

Ric: Yeah, well, Durant has been after Sonny since day one. So have your superiors, for that matter. So why are you trying to prevent it? I mean, you have everything you need to put Sonny away.

Reese: I am a law enforcement official. It's my job to save lives.

Ric: Including Sonny's?

Carly: Thank you.

Lorenzo: Yeah. Keep it.

Carly: I will. But I'm not going to use it because I'm done crying today.

Lorenzo: Good.

Carly: What are you doing here?

Lorenzo: I read about the groundbreaking for the play structure. I wanted to show my support. I think it's a great way to honor Michael.

Carly: Yeah, I think so, too.

Lorenzo: All right, what else is going on?

Carly: Things aren't good, Lorenzo, they're really not. Someone beat up Sonny's father, they roughed up Sam.

Lorenzo: That's because Sonny's competitors know he's been traumatized by Michaelís death.

Carly: Yeah, they think that makes him weak. He's mad. He's so mad, and it makes him dangerous. I don't know why I keep telling you these things.

Lorenzo: Why not? I'm sure that Sonny and Jason have told you to stay out of it.

Carly: They always do.

Lorenzo: Well, I think this one time you should listen to them.

Carly: Lorenzo, how can I? I mean, Sonny is so upset about Michaelís death, and he -- he's going to have a full-out war. I mean, how do I stop that?

Lorenzo: You canít.

Tracy: Drink this. You need the caffeine because you didn't sleep last, night and I want you really alert for what happens next.

Alan: You're blackmailing me already? Faster than usual.

Tracy: Call it what you want, Alan, but Daddy has been interfering with E.L.Q., and since Justus has control of mother's assets, I need you on my side so I can continue as C.E.O.

Alan: We'd be better off with Ned or Justus in charge.

Tracy: Ha-ha-ha-ha. Too bad, you don't have a choice. Either you back me or everybody finds out that you practically mowed down the district attorney and his wife.

Dillon: Did it. It's done. I sent the car over an embankment and into the lake on the south side of Crestview Drive.

Tracy: You sure nobody saw you do it?

Dillon: Yeah, pretty sure.

Tracy: Was the car totally submerged?

Dillon: Mom, it started out as a luxury sedan, and now it's a submarine. I think you'll be fine.

Tracy: Nice work.

Dillon: Glad you think so.

Alan: Now what?

Tracy: I'd like to report an accident.

Steven: Courtney?

Courtney: Steven. What, are you here to check on my dad?

Steven: No, I'm here to talk to you about Rachel.

Courtney: Look, I really don't have time --

Steven: Hey, we've done this dance before, Courtney. I know something's up with Rachel. She won't talk to me about it.

Courtney: Well, why would you assume that she'd --

Steven: Because near as I can tell, you're the only one Rachel socializes with, okay? I don't hear from her for years, and then she shows up in the same city, and now we're working at the same hospital? That's more than a coincidence, and you and I both know it.

Courtney: Look, Steven, Rachel's difficult to read, okay? I mean, I -- I know that you guys have unfinished business. I mean, you were involved, you were -- you were both first-year residents. Something went wrong, Rachel had to rebuild, and you --

Steven: Yeah, I got a good surgical placement --

Courtney: Yeah.

Steven: And I got a second career in forensics. So?

Courtney: Talk to Rachel.

Steven: Look, she says she's over the past, but I know that she wants something, and I was hoping you could tell me what it is.

Rachel: It's so nice to actually be sitting here eating with someone. It's hard in a new city.

Jax: You have Courtney.

Rachel: Yeah, but she's engaged. I mean, I'm not exactly a priority.

Jax: Maybe you should find yourself a boyfriend. I mean, you could pretty much have anyone in this town you want.

Rachel: You always this flattering?

Jax: Only when it's deserved. You're very accomplished, Rachel. You're a doctor at a great hospital. You're on your way to a fantastic career.

Rachel: Yeah, but I should've been at this point years ago.

Jax: Really? What happened?

Rachel: Oh, I just put my faith in the wrong person. I mean, I graduated top of my class. I had a great residency. I knew who I was and where I was going.

Jax: Then something changed your mind?

Rachel: Someone.

Jax: You fell in love.

Rachel: How'd you know?

Jax: Well, isn't that what sidetracks most of us? You fall in love, you realize nothing else matters. You know, you're willing to just pitch everything to please the one person that you love more than yourself. Rachel?

Sam: Hey, I don't expect you to change into some cautious person overnight or anything. I just want to let you know that I love you and you make my life better, and I just -- you know, I want to be with you.

Jason: And I want -- I want to come home to you. I want to protect our life together.

Sam: We can protect each other, Jason.

Jason: Sam, I have to do better than that. Those guys came after you last night because of me. And I'm going to make sure that never happens again.

Carly: So I should just, what, sit back and watch Sonny get thrown in prison?

Lorenzo: Carly, if Sonny's determined to make a show of force, no one's going to safely stop him.

Carly: You know, I always just feel like the other shoe is about to drop where Sonny is concerned.

Lorenzo: All right, Sonny wasn't able to protect Michael, so you think he's not able to protect you or Morgan or himself.

Carly: No, that's not what I mean. It's --

Lorenzo: That's the way Sonny's enemies see it. They think he's vulnerable and they're just going to keep pushing until he fights back -- or until he's gone.

Reese: Are you going to help or not?

Ric: Sonny won't listen to what I have to say. Our relationship is hostile at best.

Reese: Well, that seems to have abated after the kidnapping.

Ric: That's because innocent children were involved.

Reese: And they still are. If Sonny dies or he goes to prison, Morgan and Kristina lose a father. Now, Sonny needs to realize that his kids need him more than he needs his business.

Ric: See, my brother doesn't see it that way, Agent Marshall. He does not live in the same world that we live in. Do you understand that if he does not make a show of force, he is going to be viewed as weak?

Reese: So you're just going to let it happen?

Ric: Sonny isn't going to listen to either one of us, Reese, okay? And when he does retaliate, the only thing we can do is our job and make him pay.

Reese: You don't want to prosecute your own brother, Ric.

Ric: I'm not going to like it. But I have to believe that the system works.

Reese: The system doesn't account for grief.

Ric: He has gotten to you, hasn't he?

Reese: Yes.

Ric: It takes years of hard work and dedication to become a field agent. Are you willing to throw all of that away, sacrifice it all, and give up a major bust just because you like my brother's dimples?

Reese: I'm not a teenager with a crush, Ric. I have compassion for a parent who's suffered a devastating loss.

Ric: So he deserves leniency?

Reese: Would you just stop playing devil's advocate here? You know you feel the same way. Okay, over the last couple of months I have gotten to know Sonny's family, and it is a mess of emotions, including love and hate and betrayal. And Sonny is definitely the key, the one person who you all orbit around. Now, I know that you used to hate Sonny. You started off hating him, but now you want to save him.

Ric: The only person who can save Sonny is himself.

Reese: I think part of Sonny wants to change. He just doesn't know how.

Ric: And, what, we're going to show him the way?

Reese: I'm willing to try.

Ric: Agent Marshall, do yourself a favor. Don't share your theory with your superiors. Sonny's never going to give up the mob for any reason. He is addicted to the money, he is addicted to the power. He will fight to keep what's his. Even if it does destroy him in the end.

Brook Lynn: Here you go.

Georgie: Thank you.

Brook Lynn: What's that? Can I see it?

Georgie: Oh. Yeah.

Brook Lynn: Is it new? It's cool.

Georgie: Yeah. Yeah, it's -- Dillon had it made for me, actually. It's the quarter he was about to put into the pay phone when we very first met at Kellyís.

Brook Lynn: Cool. Georgie, you and Dillon, you guys are fine, right?

Georgie: Yeah.

Brook Lynn: So why are you so sad?

Georgie: Dillon's about to go away to film school, and I -- I don't think he'll ever come back.

Brook Lynn: Of course he will. You're here, Georgie, and he loves you.

Georgie: Brook, ever since I met Dillon, he's wanted to be a director. His dreams -- they're in Hollywood.

Brook Lynn: I know, but when you really care about someone, Georgie, your dreams -- they just don't seem as important.

Georgie: Is that why you haven't been writing music lately? You'd rather be hanging out with Diego.

Brook Lynn: Look, I really like him, Georgie.

Georgie: How much?

Brook Lynn: When he kisses me, it's -- I can't even describe it.

Georgie: Have you guys had sex yet?

Dillon: You know --

Brook Lynn: Hey.

Georgie: Hey. We totally missed you.

Dillon: Hey. Hi.

Diego: It's all right. It takes time to ditch a car, but it's totaled.

Dillon: Yeah, okay, so my mom reported it as an accident, and she said that Alan got out of the car right before it went over the embankment. Okay?

Brook Lynn: All right, Dillon --

Dillon: Okay.

Brook Lynn: You realize that you're doing Tracyís dirty work, right? Forgive me, but what happened to fighting the Quartermaine programming?

Dillon: Well, you know, he did just lose his son and a grandson.

Georgie: Alan is grieving and he never meant to hit Ric's car.

Brook Lynn: I know, but are you sure that granny's not going to twist this and make it so you guys can't hang out or --

Dillon: No, because, for one, it was her idea. Secondly, she's protecting her brother, and if this gets out, it only hurts the family.

Diego: Guys, guys? Look, as long as no one finds out, we're in the clear. Relax.

Courtney: Look, whatever happened with you and Rachel is your business. I don't want to get in the middle.

Steven: Well, I'm asking for your help here. If Rachel is after something --

Courtney: Just apologize to Rachel, okay?

Steven: I already have.

Courtney: Are you sure she sees it that way? I mean, Steven, maybe your apology about what happened made you feel better, but it wasn't enough for her.

Steven: Okay, like I said, Rachel claims to be over the past.

Courtney: It's just -- look, Rachel sees the world differently than most people. She's temperamental. Maybe if you give her what she wants, all this will -- it'll go away.

Jax: Feeling better?

Rachel: I don't usually cry in front of people I barely know.

Jax: You want to talk about it?

Rachel: Oh, it's just I think my past is just catching up with me. I mean, I hit rock bottom a few years ago emotionally and professionally.

Jax: Oh, so then you're a survivor. You turned your life around.

Rachel: I just climbed my way out of a very deep hole all alone.

Jax: Yeah. It must've been difficult. I mean, no one likes it to go it alone.

Rachel: Well, if you put your trust in someone, there's a very good chance that they're going to disappoint you. But I have talked about this enough, and you have been a gentleman, so thank you.

Jax: Oh, it was my pleasure listening. But don't kid yourself, Rachel. Whoever it was that hurt you still has a place in your heart. You haven't let go of him.

Rachel: You know, you're sweet to be concerned, but I think you're wrong about this one.

Jax: Well, don't misunderstand. I've been there, too. You know, sometimes it's easier to hold onto the past than dealing with it, but that's a mistake. There are plenty of opportunities in life that can make you happy.

Rachel: And I'm starting to think maybe you're right.

[Phone rings]

Courtney: Hey, sweetie.

Jax: I hate cell phones -- I can never surprise you.

Courtney: Well, I'm always happy to see your name on my caller I.D.

Jax: I know. I can hear your smile.

Courtney: Well, you put it there. So should we meet up before the groundbreaking?

Jax: Absolutely.

Courtney: Okay. Well, where should we meet?

Steven: You've been talking to Courtney about our past. I want to know exactly what you've been telling her.

Dillon: I think we're just going to go hang out at the haunted star.

Georgie: Yeah, it's been -- it's been kind of a weird day.

Dillon: Just a little bit, huh? We've still got each other, though, so that's good.

Georgie: Bye, guys.

Dillon: See you guys.

Brook Lynn: Bye. They really love each other. You know, that's really nice.

Diego: Would you like to go watch a movie?

Brook Lynn: What?

Diego: Come on, I'll let you pick, I promise.

Brook Lynn: Oh, really?

Diego: Yeah.

Brook Lynn: Why? So you can just complain when I pick a chick flick?

Diego: I don't care if you pick a chick flick, as long as I'm with you, I promise.

Brook Lynn: Okay.

Diego: What?

Brook Lynn: Come on. Oh, shoot.

Diego: What?

Brook Lynn: Dillon left his phone. Hold on a second.

Diego: All right.

Brook Lynn: Um -- ahem -- Uncle Dillon?

Dillon: Yeah?

Brook Lynn: Your phone.

Dillon: Oh, thank you.

Georgie: He forgets that thing everywhere.

Dillon: Thanks.

Brook Lynn: Sure.

Georgie: So are -- um -- you and Diego going to hang out tonight?

Brook Lynn: Yeah. Actually, I think that Diego and I will actually be getting a lot closer tonight.

Lorenzo: Ric, you wanted to see me?

Ric: Yeah, there's something that I want you to do.

Lorenzo: Is this an official request?

Ric: No, just the opposite -- it's a tip. Get out of town.

Lorenzo: Oh. And go where?

Ric: I don't care. Crawl under a rock. Work on your tan. Just go.

Lorenzo: What's in it for you?

Ric: It's less cleanup. Sonny's prepping to take down the Sandovals. I want you to call and warn them.

Lorenzo: Why don't you see this as an opportunity? You've wanted to put Sonny behind bars for years.

Ric: It's less bloodshed. Look, it is my job to uphold the law, not wait for somebody to commit a crime and then pounce on them.

Lorenzo: This isn't about law and order. You're trying to save big brother.

Ric: Make the call, warn the Sandovals, and then get out of town yourself.

Lorenzo: Why would I need to leave town?

Ric: Do you honestly think that Sonny's going to just go after Sandoval and not come after you?

Lorenzo: I had nothing to do with Michaelís death.

Ric: Neither did they. Sonny's making a statement. Look, if you don't want to warn Sandoval and all of his people, I can only assume that you're involved.

Lorenzo: Hmm. So this pathological hatred you have for your brother is now what? Concern? Guilt?

Ric: Call it what you want.

Lorenzo: You're trying to keep Sonny out of prison.

Ric: As well as keeping a lot of my constituents a lot safer. Make the call.

Sam: Look, Councilwoman Hailey just showed up. I'll be right back.

Carly: Okay.

Reese: Carly? I know this is short notice, but I want you to cancel the ceremony.

Carly: I busted my back setting this up. Sonny's expecting it today.

Reese: It's not a tribute to your son. The groundbreaking is Sonny's alibi.

Jason: The men in position?

Max: They've all called in.

Jason: Okay. Armando Sandoval is having lunch today at the Metro Court restaurant. They closed it down for him. That means no one's going to be in the way, and no innocent people are going to get hurt.

Jax: Hey.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Jax: What's Rachel holding over you?

Michael: Aah!

A.J.: What's the matter?

Michael: Something bit me.

Carly: Today is about Michael.

Reese: I'm trying to give you a heads-up.

Jason: Everything's in place. I'm going to handle Armando Sandoval myself.

Sonny: No, you wonít.

Tony: Okay. Two on two. Come on. You got mark.
