Courtney: We have got one, two, three -- four weeks to get married, Jax. Four weeks.

Jax: Too long, if you ask me.

Courtney: You know, if you ask me, there is no way you can plan a wedding that fast.

Jax: Yeah, I'm very resourceful. Besides, the worst is behind us, you know? You've been cleared of A.J.'s murder charge. Rachel's been arrested --

Courtney: Mm-hmm.

Jax: And I'm ready to begin my new life with you. What do you say to a little love in the afternoon, huh?

Courtney: Yeah --

Jax: Hmm?

Courtney: I'd have to say no. I'm sorry, Jax, but I can't sleep with you until we get married.

A.J.: Rachel? You there?

Rachel: Yeah, it's just -- it was a bad connection. I wanted to tell you that Courtney was arrested for your murder.

A.J.: Perfect. Everything's going as planned.

Rachel: Um -- no, not -- not exactly. There is something that I want to tell you.

Jason: Agent Marshall should be up here by now.

Sam: I know you want to get back to looking for Michael.

Jason: Yeah. We need to find the guy Faith was meeting with in the Bahamas.

Sam: All right. Well, if Carly's right and it's not Alcazar, who else is rich and twisted enough to pay Faith to steal Michael?

A.J.: What's up? You sound strange.

Rachel: It's just -- well, it's just -- I miss you, A.J., and I think about you all the time. Why don't you tell me where you are so I can come and see you?

Lorenzo: Well, aren't you the diligent public servant?

John: Mr. Alcazar. What do you want?

Lorenzo: Confirmation -- and you just gave it to me. I know exactly what you did.

John: Me?

Lorenzo: Mm-hmm.

John: You're the one returning to the scene of the crime here.

Lorenzo: No. I'm not responsible for Agent Marshall's car exploding.

John: Hmm. Well, maybe you're here to take a meeting with a rival crime boss, huh? Sonny isn't home.

Lorenzo: No, I came to see you. I know you have Michael. It's time you give him back.

John: My grandson is dead.

Lorenzo: Uh-uh. But you'd like the world to believe he is.

John: Why would I want to do that?

Lorenzo: For the same reason I've been accused -- Carly.

Alexis: I'll need the money wired by close of business today. I appreciate that, but it's your job to facilitate the transfer, not to question how I spend the money. Thank you. Same bank, and if you could use this number to confirm the transaction? Thank you.

Carly: Doesn't matter how much money you spend, Alexis. You're never going to be able to force Sonny out of Kristinaís life.

Alexis: You always make a habit of eavesdropping on people's conversations?

Carly: Well, last time I did, I heard you trying to poison the court-appointed shrink against Sonny.

Alexis: Well, goodbye, Carly.

Carly: Explain the money.

Alexis: Okay. I'm mounting an appeal for Nikolas' defense.

Carly: Hmm. Try again.

Alexis: Okay. I'm going to use the money to take a relaxing cruise to count my blessings.

Carly: Oh, I see. Okay, why don't you just tell me the truth? You're trying to buy a judge to grant you sole custody. That's why you needed the cash.

Sonny: Don't let me be the last one to talk here -- get the final word in like you want. We got some unfinished business. Believe it or not, I was -- I'm beginning to like you a little bit. I ain't going to walk away right now, and I don't want you to, so --

Reese: Sonny?

Sonny: Hey, hey. I thought I'd lost you for a second.

Jax: That's cute. This is a game, right?

Courtney: Nope. No, I'm serious.

Jax: Funny.

Courtney: I'm serious. I want to wait until we get married.

Jax: We have been sleeping together for months.

Courtney: So?

Jax: Okay, count with me here. Okay, April 14 through -- see, now, this is a whole month of denying ourselves.

Courtney: Mm-hmm.

Jax: Hmm.

Courtney: Well, Jax, we've lasted a lot longer than that. Do you remember our little bet?

Jax: Oh, yeah, yeah. I remember that. That was enough delayed gratification to last a lifetime. Besides, abstinence -- it's out.

Courtney: Nice try.

Jax: You think that you can resist me for that long?

Courtney: No question.

Jax: Really? Hmm. Okay. Well, from now on until our wedding day, you will get absolutely no play from me.

Courtney: So, then you're with me? We won't sleep together for four weeks?

Jax: No. You can abstain all you want. Doesn't mean that I'm giving up sex.

Rachel: Just -- this plan -- it's taking so much longer than we thought. I mean, maybe I could take a break. I could -- I could come see you. I mean, you're still at the same place, right?

A.J.: It's not a good time right now.

Rachel: A.J., I'm just talking about a couple days.

A.J.: No. Listen, someone's here. I'm not alone.

Rachel: What, what, are you saying that you met someone?

Jason: This thing with Agent Marshall's coming at a bad time.

Sam: I know. Sonny needs you here now. But you need to find whoever was working with Faith.

Jason: There must be some kind of holdup in the E.R. Let's just go check it out.

Sam: Okay.

Rachel: Wow. Well, it sure didn't take you very long to replace me, did it?

A.J.: That's -- that's not it, okay? I got to go.

Rachel: Wait, wait, your phone's disconnected. A.J., I don't even know how to get in touch with --

Michael: Who was that on the phone?

A.J.: Oh, just an old friend --

Michael: Oh.

A.J.: Who wanted to hang out. But I want to spend all my time with you.

Michael: Oh.

A.J.: What's the matter? You seem down.

Michael: It's just -- I -- I miss my home, my friends, and stuff.

A.J.: Yeah. So, did you have a lot of buddies at school?

Michael: I'm not talking about them. I miss Jason.

John: You think I'd put my daughter through the hell of believing that her son is dead? What happened to Michael is killing Carly.

Lorenzo: You'll be a hero if you finally bring Michael home.

John: Oh, that's the logic of a fool.

Lorenzo: Hmm. Maybe. You're a selfish, single-minded father who's smart enough to pull it off. You just didn't count on me figuring out the truth.

John: I love my daughter.

Lorenzo: But you can't get over your hate of Sonny. That's what drives you.

John: Yeah. He's a danger to her. He got my grandson killed. You know, you come off pretending like you really care about Carly, too, but you would not help me put Sonny away when we had the chance.

Lorenzo: You would have taken me down with him.

John: Oh, and I probably should have. You see, I like the streets clean of all trash.

Lorenzo: That just proves my point. You're bitter, obsessive, and desperate enough to do anything to get Carly's attention.

John: Huh. And you're getting sloppy, my friend. You just showed your hand. If you actually thought that I had something to do with Michael's disappearance, you would have proved it before confronting me.

Lorenzo: I wanted to see how you'd react. You seem extremely defensive, Durant -- which proves that you're guilty of something.

Alexis: I am in a drama-free zone right now, so I'm not going to engage with you.

Carly: Yeah. In other words, I'm right.

Alexis: In other words, you've misunderstood what you think you've heard, which is irrelevant. Carly, I am learning not to take this personally. I am trying to be flexible, and I'm --

Carly: You know what? It is personal when you accuse me of being a bad mother.

Alexis: I lost my temper. I didn't mean it when I said that. I apologize. And I told you, I am working on my coping skills. I'm actually seeing a therapist. You might try that.

Carly: Yeah, you're lying through your teeth.

Ric: Hey, hey, hey, Carly. Back off my wife.

Reese: Okay, that hurt.

Sonny: Oh, you take it easy. You don't want to move too fast.

Reese: Ah --

Sonny: The doctor's going to be here any second.

Reese: What happened?

Sonny: You don't remember?

Reese: I was leaving your house, walking to my car.

Sonny: It was rigged to explode. We don't know who did it yet.

Reese: Who called you?

Sonny: I saw it happen.

Reese: You came after me? Why?

Steven: Hey. How are you feeling?

Reese: Like a car exploded on me.

Steven: Okay, well, you still have a sense of humor. That's good. And -- so are your test results. All you have is a contusion on your arm, a burn on your hand, and a concussion.

Sonny: How long does she have to stay in the hospital?

Steven: I'd like to keep you here another night for observation. I'll check on you a little later.

Reese: All right. Thanks, Doctor.

Steven: Don't thank me. Thank Sonny. Because from what I hear, he pulled you from the wreckage and absolutely saved your life. See you in a bit.

Reese: Guess I better start displaying some serious gratitude.

Sonny: No, forget about that. We just have to figure out who tried to kill you.

Reese: I think I have an idea. When I was leaving your house, things got emotional, and I didn't get a chance to tell you something.

Sonny: Don't worry about that.

Reese: I think Durantís on the take.

Sonny: Why?

Reese: I followed him to a church confessional. Whoever he was meeting there was no priest. Someone is paying him to bribe witnesses, and I heard them say that they'd do anything to get a conviction against you.

Sonny: Does he know you're onto him?

Reese: He saw me in the church. Do you think he could have planted the bomb?

[Door opens]

John: Well, I'm glad to see that you're doing better.

Reese: Thanks to Sonny.

John: Yeah. I heard he got to you just before the bomb exploded. That was some fortunate timing.

Reese: All right, if you're implying that Sonny had something to do with the bombing, Durant, you're wrong.

Sonny: You don't have to deal with him now.

John: No, no, Sonny's right. It's -- it's a little early in the investigation to start pointing fingers.

Reese: All right, look into my case records. A person with my job makes a lot of enemies.

John: Mm-hmm. I'll bet. Some closer than you think. All right, well, look, I'll keep you posted on the investigation.

Reese: Hey, don't cut me out of the loop, Durant. As soon as I get out of here, I'm going to find whoever did this myself.

John: Yeah. Well, get some rest.

Sonny: Ahem.

[Door closes]

Sonny: That was territorial.

Reese: I don't appreciate him looking at me like I'm helpless.

Sonny: Listen, if Durant planted the bomb, that means he's going to want to finish the job.

Reese: Well, I would go to I.A. with my suspicions, but he would find out. He's got friends everywhere -- which means that I'm most vulnerable as long as I'm stuck in this hospital.

Sonny: You let me handle Durant. He won't get near you again.

Ric: Alexis isn't fighting Sonny. She's here for her therapy. Carly, she realizes that another custody battle is not good for Kristina.

Carly: Okay, why don't you go sell that line to somebody else because I'm not buying it.

Ric: Carly, why don't you go home, okay? We'll take care of our family; you can take care of yours.

Sam: Carly?

Carly: Jason, I'm so glad that you're here. Alexis is gearing up for another move against Sonny.

Jason: Just forget it, Carly. I don't want to deal with Alexis.

Carly: Well, he's going to be blindsided, okay, because all he can focus on right now is the car bombing. I don't get it. Jason, why would someone try and kill Reese on Sonny's property?

Jason: Well, because she's a fed. She's been involved in a lot of investigations. Someone might want revenge.

Carly: Jason, does that -- does that mean Sonny's going to try and help you figure out who did it?

Jason: It's possible, yeah.

Carly: Okay, then maybe we need to tell Sonny that we're looking for Michael because that's what takes priority right now.

Sam: Whoa, whoa -- you're getting way ahead of yourself right now, Carly.

Carly: Well, you know what? What? I can't help it, Sam. Someone's got my little boy, and I want to find him.

Rachel: A.J. is alive. I just talked to him.

Mac: From this room?

Rachel: Yes. I tried to get him to tell me where he was.

Mac: And he wouldn't?

Rachel: No.

Mac: That's because he canít. A.J. Quartermaine is dead. His father identified the body.

Rachel: Look, there are certain drugs that can make it look like you're dead. They can slow down your heart so it looks like it's stopped.

Mac: A.J.'s heart stopped because he was stabbed in the chest by you. Now, the evidence is stacking up. As soon as you're released from the hospital, you'll be taken to the PCPD and booked for murder.

Dillon: What are you -- are you doing homework?

Georgie: No, no, I'm finished. I just -- you know, reading because I want to.

Dillon: What is it?

Georgie: "To Kill a Mockingbird."

Dillon: Again, huh?

Georgie: Yeah. You know, it's my favorite book. I could just open it up to any page and be in their world, you know? Right there with the characters.

Dillon: Yeah. Well, it beats dealing with me.

Georgie: I don't deal with you, Dillon.

Dillon: Yeah.

Georgie: I -- Dillon, I just don't know how to help you. It seems like every time I try to make you feel better, it just -- it makes you madder at yourself.

Dillon: I know. That's because I'm a selfish jerk who messed up, and I took it out on you, and I'm so sorry.

Courtney: I'm not having sex. You can't, either.

Jax: Well, I prefer that it was you in my bed, but if you're suggesting that I look elsewhere --

Courtney: Oh, really? Yeah, keep it up, and there won't be a wedding.

Jax: I'm an adult male. I have needs.

Courtney: Well, you say you love me. Why don't you show some self-control?

Jax: Oh, come on. Why should we deny ourselves? You just got your life back. You've been cleared of A.J.ís murder. Huh? Come on.

Courtney: Jax -- look, if we wait until we get married, our wedding night will be special.

Jax: Hmm. Okay, fine, fine. Then we'll just make this one last time, okay? Because you can't just spring this on me without any notice. We'll just, you know, do it one more time right now.

Courtney: Yeah, you're right.

Jax: Hmm?

Courtney: You're right.

Jax: Yeah.

Courtney: Yeah, we need to help each other through this.

Jax: Yes, we do. Hmm. Oh, I got a whole lot of ideas --

Courtney: Hmm.

Jax: To really remember this.

Courtney: Yeah, we'll savor the sensations.

Jax: Oh. Sounds good to me.

Courtney: You know, the memory can be a very powerful thing. Why don't you think about the last time we made love?

Jax: In the shower?

Courtney: Mm-hmm. The water was running all over our bodies. Mmm. It was so hot.

Jax: Oh, hot, yeah, yeah.

Courtney: You were on fire.

Jax: I am -- I am on fire now.

Courtney: Yeah, well, then we'd better put it out.

Jax: Oh -- ah, come on! What are you -- you were playing me? Oh, come on!

Courtney: You deserved it! What?

Jax: Ah, this is not right.

Courtney: What?

Jax: You know what?

Courtney: What? No!

Jax: Come here. Come here.

Courtney: No, no, no!

Jax: Come here.

[Courtney screams]

Courtney: No --

Jax: I guess it's a small price to pay for finally making you my wife.

[Courtney laughs]

[Phone rings]

Courtney: Oh, no, wait -- wait, ignore it. Just ignore it, please.

Jax: See, it might be the wedding planner. I told him I'd be here, you know?

Courtney: Hey!

Jax: The perfect wedding -- "the wedding bells." Jasper Jacks.

Rachel: Please don't hang up.

Jax: What do you want, Rachel?

Rachel: I need you to help me.

Dillon: I had no right to go off on you the way that I did, and --

Georgie: Dillon, it's okay.

Dillon: No, no, it's -- it's not. You were trying to help, and I got mad at you for it. You know, storming out of here saying "dead boys don't have --" how pretentious is that?

Georgie: Dillon, you -- can you please give yourself a break? Because I'm not the one you're attacking here. It's you. And, Dillon, it's really starting to scare me. I am so scared that you're going to do something to intentionally punish yourself, and -- and that's why I backed off.

Dillon: I don't know. It just -- it doesn't seem fair to me. You and I -- we get to have our lives. We get to be with each other and do whatever we want, and he didn't make it to 10.

Georgie: Do you know what's not fair is wasting the time and chances that we have been given. And you know what? I'm not going to tell you how to feel, but what I am going to tell you is that no matter what happens, I love you.

Dillon: Well, that makes me pretty lucky.

Jax: Don't call me again.

Rachel: Look, I just talked to A.J.

Jax: You expect me to believe that?

Rachel: Yes, but I was the only person in the room.

Jax: What is this, Rachel? Is this some desperate attempt to get out of a murder rap?

Rachel: Look, try to believe. When I met A.J., we had both been betrayed. He convinced me to seek revenge on Courtney, and I don't know. For some reason, it seemed like it was the perfect plan.

Jax: Yes, and the plan backfired, so you killed him. Now you got to pay for it.

Rachel: Look, I'm telling the truth. He called me because he wanted to know when Courtney was going to trial.

Jax: Courtney's not going to trial -- you are. Then you're going to spend the rest of your life in prison.

Courtney: So, what, what, Rachel's claiming she spoke with A.J.?

Jax: She's lying. A.J.'s dead.

Courtney: Jax, why would Rachel stick to such a ridiculous story unless it were true?

A.J.: Michael, we've been over this. Jason isn't your friend. He's the one who stole you from me to begin with.

Michael: Jason took care of me. He taught me how to do cool stuff like fix my electric train.

A.J.: That doesn't mean he loves you. Look, he does what Sonny tells him to do. He couldn't take you back if he wanted to.

Michael: Jason can say I could live with him, and we would never bother him or my mom again.

A.J.: Yeah, but then you would be putting Jason in a very bad place because he works for Sonny, and Sonny would take everything away from him, okay -- his job, his house -- everything. Is that what you want?

Michael: No, but --

A.J.: No, there's no "buts." Buddy, you and I are getting ready to take a trip around the world! But first, we have to talk about school.

Michael: You're going to make me go to school?

A.J.: Come on. You are a smart little guy. We can't let your mind go to waste.

Michael: Yes, we can.

A.J.: No, we can't. Okay? Now, there are a lot of great academies around here. Really. They have great sports teams, outdoor campuses, you name it.

Michael: Like hockey?

A.J.: Absolutely! Hockey, swimming, soccer. But if you go to one of these academies, that means that you are going to have to stay here with me. And is that all right?

Michael: Yeah. I think that'd be good.

Sam: We know this is hard, and we all want to find Michael.

Carly: Yeah, well, I feel like he's getting even further away now that we think he's alive.

Jason: That's because we can't be so sure, Carly.

Carly: I know it, Jason. I feel him in my heart.

Jason: I know. A feeling and an enlarged photo is all we have to go on.

Carly: It's enough.

Sam: Yeah, but what if it's not enough for Sonny? You know he's going to fight you on this, and Sonny needs to be in control. He could put Michael in danger without meaning to.

Carly: Jason, just as long as you don't let him send you off on some other job. I know Michael's still alive.

Sonny: What'd you say about Michael?

Sam: Carly was just talking about how strong her connection to Michael is.

Sonny: Michael's gone.

Sam: Right, but she still feels like he is alive in her.

Sonny: You got to stop this, Carly. I mean, it's not helping anybody, talking about Michael like he's alive.

Carly: Sonny, I just --

Sonny: I miss my little boy, and I always will. But we got to let him go.

Carly: Fine. I --

Jason: How's Agent Marshall? How's she doing?

Sonny: She's fine. I got to talk to you.

Carly: Thanks for the save.

Sam: Yeah, forget it.

Carly: You and Jason are right. We can't tell Sonny about Michael until we've got more proof.

[Phone rings]

Sam: Go ahead, go ahead.

Carly: Excuse me. Hello?

Lorenzo: I need you to meet me at Kellyís. It's about Michael.

Carly: Okay, I'll be right there. I got to go. Will you just tell Jason to call me, okay?

Sam: Yeah. Of course.

Carly: Thanks.

Sonny: Agent Marshall thinks Durantís on the take. She overheard him making a deal to take me down at any cost.

Jason: Does Durant know that she's onto him?

Sonny: Well, that's what I'm thinking.

Jason: This is not good. What do you want to do?

Sonny: We have to keep Agent Marshall safe.

Jax: Look, A.J. and Rachel are twisted. They're both obsessed with revenge, and A.J.'s obsession got him killed.

Courtney: Yeah, but it just -- it doesn't add up, Jax. A.J. hired someone to stalk me so that I would go to him for help instead of Jason. I mean, if he's crazy enough to do that, he's -- he's --

Jax: What, he faked his own death just to torture you again?

Courtney: Look, A.J. hated me for leaving him. He never got over it.

Jax: Look, they had an affair, okay? A.J. started treating Rachel badly, just like he did with you, and then she killed him for it.

Courtney: It's too easy.

Jax: They're both certifiable. Trying to figure them out is a waste of time.

Courtney: Jax, look, if Rachel really did kill A.J., then why wouldn't she kill Steven?

Jax: Because she had a history with Steven, and they would have been able to connect her to the crime.

Courtney: Rachel changed her story before I was exonerated. She did. She -- I mean, I was still the prime suspect when she started claiming A.J. was alive.

Jax: Well, maybe she was afraid that the false evidence wouldn't stand up to scrutiny, and she was trying to cover.

Courtney: Or maybe it's like the boy who cried wolf -- Rachel lied and lied, and the first time she tells the truth, no one believes her.

A.J.: Okay. That one there has tide pools to study marine life. You can touch manta rays and take trips to a coral reef.

Michael: Nice.

A.J.: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Nothing's too good for you.

Michael: Oh, hey.

A.J.: Yeah. The world is your oyster, little man. Okay? And when you grow up, you can be anything you want to be because I believe in you.

Michael: What school do you want me to go to?

A.J.: Well, choice is yours. But you don't have to do that now. I mean, we can always decide when we get back from our trip.

Michael: Cool.

A.J.: Yeah. And there's just one problem -- I'm going to need medical records and transcripts --

Michael: My mom has that stuff.

A.J.: Do you think she'll give them to me?

Michael: Well, Mom and Dad don't want me anymore. They'll give you anything you want, just as long as they don't see me.

Carly: Hey.

Lorenzo: Hey.

Carly: You said you have news about Michael?

Lorenzo: I might have a lead.

Carly: Tell me.

Lorenzo: It won't be easy to hear.

Carly: It doesn't matter. Who do you think has Michael?

Lorenzo: Your father.

John: Agent Marshall?

John: Agent Marshall?

Jason: You here to finish the job?

A.J.: What are you doing? You don't have to mess with those forms. I'll do that.

Michael: Well, I want to help out.

A.J.: Oh. Okay. Where'd you leave off?

Michael: Right here -- "name of father."

A.J.: Hmm. Do you want to fill it in?

Michael: Sure. Can I put your name there?

A.J.: I'd like that.

Lorenzo: Michael's disappearance has made Sonny vulnerable. He's making bad business decisions, ones that could get him convicted, and you know that's what Durant wants.

Carly: No, uh-uh. He wouldn't go this far.

Lorenzo: Carly, he wants you in his life at any cost. And he's threatened by the people you're close to. He's already come after me, Sonny, even Webber. John Durant is fanatical about getting what he wants, and after everything that's happened, you won't even consider that he might be the kidnapper?

Carly: Well, I guess there's just one way to find out.

John: Well, if it isn't the business partner -- that's a polite euphemism, isn't it? You're Sonny's enforcer, his killing machine.

Jason: I don't know what you're talking about. Mm-hmm.

John: I'm just -- I'm laughing at the irony of the situation here. One of the biggest racketeers on the eastern seaboard, currently under investigation for multiple murders, and you're standing here accusing me of attempted murder?

Jason: Why are you here?

John: To see Agent Marshall.

Jason: Oh.

John: Ask her about the car bomb. She was with Sonny earlier. Obviously, she couldn't speak freely. So where have you taken her?

Jason: She was gone when I came into the room.

John: Uh-huh. I'm sure the hospital records won't have any indication of that.

Jason: I wouldn't know.

John: You know, you and your boss -- you think you're untouchable. Well, I will not rest until Carly is free from Sonny -- and you.

Jason: You want to -- you want to help Carly? Stay out of her life.

Max: This is some freshly squeezed O.J.

Reese: Did you do this yourself?

Max: What can I say? It's a good source of vitamins.

Sonny: Thank you for sneaking Reese out of the hospital. Nobody but Jason should know she's here, okay?

Max: Yeah, you got it. Hey, let me know if you need anything else.

Reese: You know you can't keep me here forever. People are in and out of here all the time.

Sonny: That is true, but I will keep them away.

Reese: Even Carly?

Sonny: Carly -- you know what? She's too close to Durant and she could slip up.

Reese: Yeah, well, we don't even have any proof that Durant was behind the bombing.

Sonny: It does not hurt to take precautions.

Reese: Thank you. I know I'm a lot safer here than I would be in the hospital. At least physically.

Sonny: Why don't you -- your head all right? Because you might need a pillow back there. What do you think? Huh?

Reese: Why are you doing this, Sonny?

Sonny: Why?

Reese: Yeah.

Sonny: Well, I mean, you helped me out, right? I'm returning the favor. And you're just going to have to give up a little control for a little while.

Reese: Oh, right. Me give -- giving up control is like you giving up control.

Sonny: How's that pillow?

Reese: It's fine.

Sonny: Yeah?

Reese: But, you know, I would be a lot more comfortable if you would just answer a question directly.

Sonny: Okay. Ask again. Ahem.

Reese: You bring me here to your compound, you have your guards squeezing fresh orange juice for me in the back, and -- why didn't you just cut me loose? Let me take my chances with those who want me dead? I mean, you know I'm a danger to you. I can trip you up.

Sonny: That's pretty funny.

Reese: So why are you taking care of me? Come on. Seriously.

Ric: So Dr. Meadows was sure about the tests?

Alexis: Blood pressure's down, baby is fine. So as long as I stay rested, I stay stress-free, there's no reason to think that this baby won't go full term.

Ric: You did it.

Alexis: And you doubted me.

Ric: Well, you weren't the easiest person to get through to.

Alexis: I love this baby, I love our family, and I love you.

Ric: You know what? I'm proud of you. And those coping strategies seem to work out very, very well. You were admirably serene with Carly.

Alexis: Yeah, it wasn't easy.

Ric: I got a surprise for you.

Alexis: I bet you do.

Ric: Easy. Pick.

Alexis: Ooh. Oh!

Ric: Come on.

Alexis: Great.

Ric: Oh, thank God. You can have anything but cherry. A toast?

Alexis: To what?

Ric: Oh -- to your newfound calm and its help in ending this war with Sonny.

Alexis: I am trying to find the balance between surrendering and knowing that I still have a little bit of control.

Ric: Wow, you have changed.

Alexis: I'm trying to be flexible. And it helps knowing that you're right beside me.

Ric: You can lean on me anytime.

Alexis: Ditto.

Sam: Yes. Yeah, that's right, a table for two. Um -- on the porch, and make sure you light the candles and -- I don't know, anything else you can think of that's really, really romantic. Yeah. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, the reservation should be under Morgan. Thank you.

Woman: Sam? Oh, we used to see each other outside Dr. Meadows' office when we were both pregnant. Are you as blissed out by new motherhood as I am? How's your daughter?

Sam: That's really nice of you to ask, but my daughter -- she was stillborn.

Woman: I'm so sorry. I had no idea.

Sam: No, no, please -- how could you? She's beautiful. What's her name? Hi.

Woman: Gabri -- Gabriella.

Sam: Gabriella? Well, you certainly look like an angel. Hi.

Woman: Thanks. I'm really sorry.

Jason: Hey. You were great just now.

Sam: You know, I miss my little girl so much. Being pregnant changed me, Jason. It just kind of felt like my whole world just calmed down for a minute. You know, I didn't feel put upon or hurt. Nobody -- nobody could make me into a victim. I wanted to put that life ahead of my own. Then my world fell away, and I -- I knew real love.

Jason: Do you want that again?

Sam: Yeah, more than anything. I know that we are focusing on finding Michael right now, but as soon as he comes home, could we?

Jason: I promise.

John: Hey.

Carly: Hey.

John: I got your message. What's wrong?

Carly: John, you say that -- that you would do anything to get me to accept you. Why is that?

John: You're my daughter. I care about you.

Carly: Or you want someone on your side.

John: Where is this going, Carly?

Carly: I need to know the truth about my son.

John: You've been talking to Alcazar.

Carly: John, you know I love Michael. And if he's alive -- if there's any chance --

John: Alcazar is trying --

Carly: I need to know!

John: To manipulate you!

Carly: I love my Michael! I need him back!

John: Carly! Carly! Your son -- my grandson -- he's gone. I barely knew him. Oh, believe me, I wanted to. I hate what happened to Michael.

Carly: But you know he's the key to my heart. You know that, and you know that I would love anyone who would bring him to me. Did you do it, John? Did you steal my son?

Ric: Mac, I heard Reese was conscious.

Mac: Yeah, she's also gone.

Ric: What, she checked out already?

Mac: She was supposed to stay for observation.

Ric: Did anybody see her leave?

Mac: Whoever took Reese didn't want us to know she was leaving.

Ric: Or maybe they took her against her will.

Reese: Hmm.

Sonny: My mother used to do this when I was a kid. Kind of helped with the pain. How are you feeling? A little better?

Reese: Oh. I would nod, but -- oh -- I think my head would fall off.

Sonny: Boy, you're getting funnier by the second, you know that? You really must be hurting.

Reese: And you're still avoiding my questions.

Sonny: What was that question again? Oh, yeah, now I remember. Um -- I'm doing this because I'm grateful. You had evidence that connected me to the Sandoval shootings. And you let me destroy it. For that, I thank you. I get to kiss my kids good night, you know? And I get to be a father to Morgan and Kristina. And, you know, I'm just -- just trying to pay back that debt, you know?

Reese: You don't owe me anything, Sonny. Why did you follow me to my car?

Sonny: I wasn't ready for you to walk out of my life.

Reese: Is this just another game?

Sonny: No. It's the truth.

Rachel: You guys came.

Jax: Courtney wanted to talk to you.

Rachel: Does it mean that you believe me that A.J.'s alive?

Courtney: We need proof, Rachel.

Rachel: Look, I don't have any yet, but you have to trust me. I know that I have given you no reason to.

Courtney: Yeah, no kidding. Look, you made my life a living hell for months. You threatened Jax.

Jax: Come on, this is a waste of time.

Rachel: No, you know, don't leave. If you go, then A.J. wins. He's going to find another way. He's going to ruin your life.

[Phone rings]

Jax: Uh-uh, not so fast.

Rachel: No -- no, it could be -- it could be A.J.

Jax: That's why I want Courtney to answer it. End this once and for all.

Courtney: Hello?

A.J.: Rachel?

Courtney: A.J.?

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Courtney: A.J., I know it's you -- say something.

Mac: Rachel is setting you up.

Jax: What makes you think that was A.J.?

Courtney: I know what I heard, Jax.

John: Michael is not missing. He is dead.

Ric: Agent Marshall has gone missing?

[Knock on door]

Man: Mr. Corinthos?
