Man: I'm surprised that you two are even dating. , Ng here isn't working. The money, the secrecy, the so-called "tips" that lead nowhere. If I had known that Reese Marshall was at Sonny's house, I would have pushed for a warrant. I would not have --

Man: Why is Agent Marshall still in charge of the Sandoval investigation? She's living with the prime suspect.

John: Reese Marshall knows how to play F.B.I. politics.

Man: Didn't you inform them?

John: Yes, I did. But maybe you already know that, huh? Because maybe you are F.B.I., and you're just trying to set me up. Or worse, you're working for Sonny Corinthos and it's your job to distract me. Is that what's going on here?

Ric: What's going on? A little soul searching?

Sonny: Where you been?

Reese: Excuse me?

Sonny: You're supposed to be hiding out. Did you leave the property?

Reese: We'll have the fight about how I don't report to you later, but right now I have news about Michael and it's not good.

Sonny: What do you mean, it's not good? Is he at the Quartermaines?

Reese: I don't know. I have a field agent out in the Bahamas. They checked out A.J.'s villa.

Sonny: Can they prove that he was there?

Reese: Yeah, he was definitely there. But A.J. didnít just steal your little boy. He's messing with his head.

Emily: Jase. Did you find anything?

Jason: Yeah. This.

Emily: I guess Mom saved it.

Jason: Yeah.

Carly: Michael, it's really you! You're really here!

Michael: Don't you touch me.

Jason: A.J. will show up here, if he hasn't already, and he's really going to play on Alanís guilt.

Emily: Well, if Michael is hiding in this house somewhere, at least we know he's safe.

Jason: Yeah, but the longer he's with A.J., the worse the emotional damage will be.

Emily: How could A.J. do this?

Jason: A.J. thinks that Michael was stolen from him, and he thinks he's entitled to do anything to get him back, even hurt Michael.

Emily: You know, A.J. is a victim, so he thinks it's okay to victimize other people, you know, because bad things happen to him. Bad things happen to everyone.

Jason: How are you doing?

Emily: Some days are better than others. I'm definitely not a victim, but if one more person tries to be warm and supportive and understanding, I think I'm going to start screaming and never stop.

Jason: I'll keep that in mind.

Emily: So, anyway, I'm going to keep an eye on Dad.

Jason: Okay. Just let me know if he does anything unusual.

Emily: Yeah, it's a little hard to tell these days. You know, he's drinking. He isn't thinking clearly.

Jason: Do you think you can follow him without getting caught?

Emily: Well, the family thinks I'm perfect, but I can be very sneaky.

Jason: Okay. Just let me know what Alan does.

Emily: Okay, I will.

Jason: Thanks.

Emily: Bye.

Emily: Hi. Skye, what are you doing here?

Skye: Emily, hi. You know, I was just looking for a stamp. I thought maybe I could -- Jason. Hi. I didn't know that -- oh -- I'm such an idiot. You know what, I realized I have stamps in my car, so I'm going to go get them.

Emily: Okay.

Jason: Seems kind of nervous.

Emily: Yeah. Why would she be going through that desk?

Jason: I don't know.

Emily: You know, she feels so guilty about what's happened that she's barely even been around the house anymore.

Jason: You know, she helped Luke get Faith out of prison.

Emily: Yeah, but no one could've ever imagined that Faith was going to do something so terrible, Jase. You know, Skye is going to feel a lot better when she finds out that A.J. and Michael are still alive.

John: Confession is a private matter, Mr. Lansing.

Ric: How many Hail Marys do you get for scaring off a priest?

John: What are you doing here?

Ric: What spooked him, the car bomb?

John: I don't appreciate false accusations.

Ric: Hmm. Why would you? Wastes time. You're an efficient man. It's kind of like a car bomb. You know, you eliminate Reese, you implicate Sonny, it's all nice and neat.

John: I'll catch Sonny Corinthos without attempted murder. Don't you worry about that. But I got to tell you something. You're not making it very easy for me. When did you stop hating Sonny and start trying to protect him?

Ric: Yeah, I would've had a case against Sonny for the Sandoval killings before you spooked our best eyewitness.

John: Hmm, hmm. Well, I'll say a little prayer for you right after I light a candle for my grandson. You remember him -- Michael? Shot, killed, dumped in a swamp.

Ric: John, just so we're clear here, it's my job to uphold the law. You keep breaking it, I'll break you.

Sonny's voice: You know I don't want to hear about this.

Sonny: Michael heard me say that?

Reese: Probably.

Sonny's voice: I thought this was settled.

Sonny: A.J., that little weasel, set up a fake call.

Reese: That's what it looks like.

Sonny: Right.

Sonny's voice: I mean it. I never want to see you again.

Sonny: Michael would never fall for that.

Reese: Don't be so sure, Sonny.

Sonny: Michael would never believe that I would say things like that. I mean, you know, I would never say that.

Reese: All right, Michael is vulnerable right now.

Sonny: Are you saying my kid doesn't know that I love him? That he'd believe anything that slimeball puts in front of him?

Reese: No. But, you know, he doesn't have many choices right now.

Sonny: Yeah, he has -- the only choices he needs to know is that I would die for him and so would his mother.

Reese: And I'm sure that's true. He's just been away from you --

Sonny: There's no way in hell that my son would buy into a scam like this!

Michael: Get away.

Carly: Come here, Mr. Man. Come on. Let me hug you.

Michael: Don't call me that.

Carly: Well, I always call you that.

Michael: It's stupid.

Carly: Okay. You can stay there if you want. I'm just so glad to see you. We looked all over this whole world for you.

Michael: Liar.

Carly: Why would I lie about something like that? I love you, Michael.

Michael: You love Morgan.

Carly: Sure, I do. But I loved you first.

Michael: He's your real kid.

Carly: You're my real kid, Michael. And Sonny's real kid.

Michael: Sonny gave me back to A.J., and you did nothing to stop it.

Carly: Sweetie, we would never give you back. That night that you called Daddy, when you were so brave, we wanted to come and get you, but a gun went off and we found a terrible picture, and we thought you were dead. So we're -- come, let's go to Daddyís. We'll go to your father's and we'll sort this out.

Michael: Dad told me he didn't want to see me again.

Carly: Sonny would never say that.

Michael: I talked to him on the phone!

Carly: That was a trick. A.J. tricked you somehow. We love you so much, and we always will. We always have. We want to take you home.

Michael: You're a liar!

Carly: Michael, wait!

A.J.: Let him go.

Carly: You want to shoot me? Fine, shoot. Go ahead. Maybe Michael will see the kind of man you really are. Michael, find a cop! We need some --

A.J.: Hurts to be rejected by your own kid, doesn't it?

Carly: How could you do this to him?

A.J.: How many times did you tell Michael I gave him up? That I didn't love him? How many times did you tell my son that I signed him over to Sonny of my own free will? And I'm the liar?

Carly: You are a liar, A.J. You are a sick, pathetic liar, and I will never let you have my son.

A.J.: My son! I mean, did you really think that I was going to let you steal my only child?

Carly: He's not yours. He's not. He will never be. He never has. He's mine and Sonny's!

A.J.: He hates Sonny! He loves me. Me! And you don't even matter.

Carly: Bastard!

Lorenzo: Hey, hey! Let him go. He's not getting away with this.

Monica: Hi.

Emily: Hi.

Monica: I got your page. Are you okay?

Emily: Yeah, no, no, no, I'm fine.

Monica: Okay.

Emily: Have you seen Dad?

Monica: Uh, no, not for a while.

Emily: He isn't picking up his phone. Do you think he's okay?

Monica: Well, considering his recent downward spiral, I would say he's doing fine.

Emily: Do you think that Dad is helping A.J.?

Monica: You've talked to Jason.

Emily: Yeah. He told me everything. It's -- it's one reason I'm moving in, is to keep an eye on Dad.

Monica: Well, I -- I told Jason that I would do everything that I could.

Emily: Do you really think that Dad is helping A.J. hide Michael?

Monica: It would certainly explain his feeling better all of a sudden, getting back on the wagon.

Emily: But doesn't he know that A.J. is trying to turn Michael against Sonny and Carly?

Monica: Yes.

Emily: So why would dad help him?

Monica: Well, Michaelís a Quartermaine. A.J.'s his son.

Emily: Look, it's true. I mean, A.J. was lied to for the first year of Michaelís life. It's awful, but A.J. has done his fair share of awful things, both before and after that year.

Monica: I agree.

Emily: A.J. hurt all of us, and now he's destroying Michael. Why would Dad want any part of it?

Monica: Alan spent most of his life trying to get Edwardís approval. He never got it. When A.J. supposedly died, Alan realized he's been treating A.J. just the way Edward treated him. I mean, nothing A.J. did was good enough. None of his choices were right. Everything A.J. did was wrong, and Alan was even the one to pit Jason against A.J. A.J. didn't have a chance.

Emily: Mom, I understand that Dad feels guilty, but --

Monica: And -- and A.J. is relying on that guilt. He's offering Alan an opportunity he can't resist, a chance to redeem himself, for Alan to be the kind of father he never was.

Sonny: Michael's been through a lot in the last couple of years. He knows we love him, we'd do anything to bring him home.

Reese: You can't assume that Michael believes that anymore.

Sonny: We taught Michael that A.J. is a liar.

Reese: All right, but that was before the kidnapping. That was before his whole sense of security was violated.

Sonny: Okay, Michaelís scared. I understand that, okay? But he doesn't panic. He's not that way. He -- remember, he grabbed Faith's cell phone, right?

Reese: And what happened right after that? Kristina and Morgan got to go home and Michael didnít.

Sonny: We couldn't find him.

Reese: You stopped looking.

Sonny: Because we thought he was dead.

Reese: Well, you think that A.J. is going to tell Michael that? Michael is set to believe anything that A.J. says. Michael was not in a secure situation to begin with.

Sonny: What do you mean -- wait, wait, what do you mean, not a secure situation? Michael knows that we would never just, you know, throw him away. We're a family. We stick together no matter what.

Reese: You and Carly split up.

Sonny: Hey, Michael was just -- he was just starting to adjust to that. He knew just because we weren't, you know, in the same home that we were still a family.

Reese: Come on, Sonny. Kids -- they want their parents to love each other. They want them to live together. That's what a real family is, at least to a child. And you and Carly couldn't give Michael that. And now, I'm not trying to get in your face here, but Michael, you have to understand, is just ripe for this kind of abuse. The last few years he's lived in so many different places, and sometimes against his will. Carly disappears for several months at a time.

Sonny: Well, he's just starting to get over -- you know, he's starting to get over that, you know.

Reese: Yeah, I -- I mean, okay. But how many times has Michael run away?

Sonny: Yeah, but he was just -- you know, that -- he was getting past that, too.

Reese: Then you expect him to deal with a new baby brother, and then an overnight little sister.

Sonny: Okay, first of all, he was great -- he was great with Morgan and Kristina.

Reese: And he probably saved their lives. But then he got thrown away for his trouble.

Sonny: Hold it, hold it. No, you got to be careful there, okay? Michael knows we would never just throw him away.

Reese: You threw Carly away.

Sonny: Come on. That was something else. You don't understand. You don't even know what you're talking about.

Reese: Look, I know. But Michael -- he may see it that way, at least, you know, in part.

Sonny: I mean, he was just getting over the fact that, you know, we weren't going to be together.

Reese: He had no choice but to believe that.

Reese: Sonny, it's not uncommon for kidnappers to convince kids that their parents just don't want them anymore. And even under the best of circumstances, it's really not that difficult to do.

Sonny: He's a tough kid.

Reese: Yeah. Michael will do anything to survive, including turning his back on his parents. Look, I just want you to be aware, okay, that the little boy who comes home will be very different from the little boy who went away.

Carly: Sonny, my God.

Sonny: What, Carly? What? Oh. Hey, hey. What happened?

Carly: I saw Michael.

Sonny: Where?

Carly: At the swing set.

Sonny: Where is he now? Where is he?

Carly: He wouldn't let me get close. He ran away. And Lorenzo and I went running after him, but A.J. showed up and pulled a gun on us.

Sonny: Is A.J. with him now?

Carly: No, he ran off first.

Sonny: So Michaelís out there alone?

Carly: Sonny, Michael thinks we don't love him anymore.

Alan: Hey -- what are you doing here? Why aren't you in the attic?

A.J.: Is he up there?

Alan: Michael isn't with you?

A.J.: No, I had to meet someone about my money.

Alan: I could have taken care of that for you. How could you leave him alone at a time like this?

A.J.: I just -- I just saw him at his memorial playground, and he ran away from Carly and Lorenzo. I mean, that's good, that's good.

Alan: You don't know where Michael is?

A.J.: He'll be back, don't worry.

Alan: How could you let this happen?

A.J.: You don't want to help me, Dad, donít.

Alan: Look, how could I help you if you keep making these stupid mistakes?

A.J.: I knew I couldn't depend on you.

Alan: Look, I'm up to here with your guilt. Go up into the attic. I'll look for Michael.

Monica: Alan? Oh, my God. Oh, my God, it's true! You're alive! Oh! Oh! Oh!

Steven: Well, hello there. How are you feeling?

Rachel: Better, although a little bit confused. My police guard just vanished this morning. I don't know if that means that they found A.J. or --

Steven: No one told you?

Rachel: No, nobody's told me anything.

Steven: Okay, a buddy of mine just called me from the justice department. The F.B.I. sent a team of investigators to A.J.'s villa in the Bahamas, and an eyewitness account proves that A.J. was alive as of 7:00 P.M. last night.

Rachel: Well, then it's over. They know that I didn't murder A.J. Okay, Steven, look, I know that you could care less about me, but you could try and be just a little bit happy.

Steven: I'm happy for you. I just don't want you jumping to any conclusions. You're still in a lot of trouble. You tampered with evidence, you obstructed justice. You framed Courtney for A.J.'s nonexistent murder, which is bad enough. But if what I'm hearing is true, and A.J. took Michael, then you could be charged as an accomplice.

Rachel: Oh, God.

Steven: Did you know about him?

Rachel: No, Steven, I swear. All I knew is that he needed to get away with stealing some money from his family. I didn't even know he had a son, let alone that he was planning on kidnapping him. Damn it, you know, how am I going to prove anything? Nobody is going to believe that I didn't do this. No one's going to believe me.

Steven: I do. You've made some huge mistakes. But how -- you've been dead wrong and you're going to have to pay for the consequences, but there's no way I want to see you punished for something you didn't do.

Rachel: Look, I just wish I could make you understand how thoroughly A.J. played me. I mean, he just knew how angry I was at you, and he just fed into my hurt and my vulnerability until I needed revenge as bad as he did. You know what, that's what I missed. That was -- that was it. He was so angry at this mysterious group of people, and I just assumed that it was his family, but it was Michaelís parents. He was planning on kidnapping him all along.

Jason: Where's A.J.?

Skye: How did you get in here? I'm calling the police.

Jason: No, no, no, you don't want the police.

Skye: Listen, A.J.'s dead, okay? I don't know what you want or what you're doing here, but --

Jason: What do you have against Michael?

Skye: Excuse me?

Jason: Why are you helping A.J. keep Michael away from his parents?

Skye: What are you talking about?

Jason: What am I -- Michael is alive, and A.J.ís got him.

Skye: Michael's alive?

Reese: Hey.

Ric: What's the point of hiding if we meet in a public park?

Reese: The Michael Corinthos memorial playground, I'm right near the D.A. What could be safer than that? Durant has probably figured out where I am by now, so I'm going to tell you all the details.

Ric: That'd be nice.

Reese: I saw him at St. Agnes --

Ric: Wait a minute. I was just there. I saw him there, as well.

Reese: In confession?

Ric: Well, maybe, but there was some problem with the priest.

Reese: You saw the priest?

Ric: No, just Durant.

Reese: All right, I heard them discussing money to bribe witnesses and manufacture evidence against Sonny. I heard it.

Ric: The priest was paying Durant?

Reese: Yep, that's what it sounded like to me.

Ric: Did Durant know you were there?

Reese: Yes, and a short while later my car blew up.

Ric: Now it's starting to make sense.

Reese: So you want to take him in yourself, or should I tag along?

Ric: You don't have any evidence.

Reese: I'm a federal agent. That should count for something.

Ric: Not anymore, Agent Marshall. Not since you got into bed with the mob.

Carly: He'll call. Michael will call. He will call, he will find a phone, or he will get to one. He will borrow someoneís. Did you leave a message for Jason?

Sonny: I got everybody all over town looking for Michael, Carly.

Carly: So does Lorenzo. What -- I asked him to, okay? Don't start.

Sonny: You know what, I don't care who finds Michael, as long as it's not A.J.

Carly: Me, neither. Sonny, if you had seen the look in Michaelís eyes --

Sonny: Don't, Carly. You don't want to go there. That's why he's on his way out here, because he wants to make sure that we still love him, okay?

Carly: If he can find his way out here.

Sonny: He can, Carly.

Carly: Michael's been gone for a long time.

Sonny: He'll get here.

Carly: What if he's hiding someplace?

Sonny: Why would he be hiding?

Carly: Michael's scared. He's really scared, and so angry.

Sonny: He can't believe -- he can't believe we don't want him.

Carly: I don't know, Sonny.

Sonny: He's alive, Carly, okay? That's what we have to focus on, okay? He needs to be home for a while.

Leticia: Would you like to see Morganís new tooth?

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: You have a new tooth?

Sonny: Let's see! Let's see!

Carly: Come here, big boy.

Sonny: What's going on, buddy? You know Michaelís alive, right?

Leticia: Yeah, I've been lighting my candles every day.

Carly: Did you hear that? Your big brother's alive and well, and when he comes home, you know what he's going to do? He's going to pick you up --

Sonny: Hi.

Carly: And he's going to spin you around.

Sonny: Yeah! Guess what I'm going to do. Watch this, watch this. Whoa, whoa, big buddy!

Carly: Hi!

Sonny: You like that?

Carly: Did you hear that?

Sonny: Hey, do you want this?

[Morgan babbles]

Carly: Yeah! Michael might be here any second.

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: Isn't that exciting?

Sonny: He's probably not even going to recognize you, you're so big. Right?

Leticia: I'm going to go get his room ready.

Sonny: All right, thank you. Hey! Hey!

Carly: All we need is a little time together. And then when Michael is home with his family, he's going to understand.

Sonny: Yeah, what do you think about that? What are you going to do when you see your big brother? You going to -- you going to give him a hug and a kiss, huh? Huh?

Carly: What are you going to say? What are you going to say when you see him? Are you going to say "I'm a big boy"? Are you going to say "I'm so handsome"?

Sonny: Yeah, that's what you can -- you know what? He saved your life, you know that? He's the bravest kid I've ever known.

Carly: Yeah. Your brother's going to be a little mad at Mommy and Daddy for a while, but that's okay. As soon as he gets one look at you, he's -- Sonny, I think he sees something outside.

Sonny: Take -- take him for a second. I'll be back.

Carly: Come here, honey.

Sonny: Michael? Hey, buddy?

Carly: Are you sure he wasn't out there? Because I kind of got this feeling.

Sonny: No, I didn't see anything, Carly. But, you know, we're going to find Michael.

Reese: John Durant is corrupt. There is no question about it. But if you think that a jury won't believe my testimony --

Ric: Why should they, Reese? You vanished from the hospital, and then you end up in Sonny's --

Reese: Durant was after me.

Ric: Why go to Sonny's, all right? Why didn't you ask for witness protection? Why didn't you come to me? Aren't we supposed to be on the same side?

Reese: Yeah, okay. It looks bad, obviously. But if a good defense attorney gets ahold of you, they could tear you apart, too, Ric. You have had a lifelong vendetta against Sonny. And if Sonny goes to jail, you and Alexis get custody of Kristina.

Ric: Never mind my personal feelings. I can't charge anybody with anything because you've come up with zip in the Sandoval killings, even though John Durant placed it on a silver platter.

Reese: Yeah, that's called witness coercion, Ric.

Ric: I have nine men murdered in broad daylight, Reese. I have no suspects, no arrests. As the D.A., I'm starting to look a little bad.

Reese: So what do you want to do?

Ric: I need solid, clean evidence, okay? Something that's going to stand up in court. If I'm ever going to take Sonny to trial, I have got to have a strong case, or it will look like the little brother finally getting even.

Monica: Where's Michael?

A.J.: He'll be back.

Monica: He'll be back? What do you mean? He's -- he's missing? I mean, you two were standing here, and he's out there somewhere?

A.J.: Dad's trying to help me.

Monica: No -- A.J., your father is trying to make up for years of bad parenting, and it's at Michaelís expense.

A.J.: Why shouldn't I get another chance with my son? Why shouldn't Dad get another chance with me? That's -- that's what we're trying to do here.

Monica: Do you have any idea how many people you have hurt?

A.J.: At least I don't kill people for a living.

Monica: No, don't you bring Jason into this.

A.J.: Mom, Mom, my entire life -- I have spent my entire life living in the shadow of Jason -- thanks to you two.

Monica: We both love you, A.J., and you know that!

A.J.: You're not even his real mother, and you love him more than me. Even when he stole my son and handed him over to a criminal. And then when I tried to get him back, you stood up against me in court.

Monica: Oh, wow, you really -- you really have a selective memory.

A.J.: Just maybe if you would have supported me just a little bit, Michael and I would still be living here in Port Charles. And my son wouldn't be out there, where someone else can find him. And if Jason does -- if he finds him, you know what he's going to do to me. I'm desperate, okay? I need a place to hide, just for a few hours.

Monica: Well, what about Michael?

A.J.: He'll be back. I know he will. I know you'll never love me the way you love Jason, ever. But I'm asking you just this once -- choose me. Please. Let me leave the country with my son. Please.

Skye: "Dear Jason, Sonny doesn't want me anymore. He sent me to live with my real dad. A.J. says Mom doesn't want me, either, but I want to be sure. Please tell her to call me. Your friend, Michael. P.S. -- Don't tell Sonny or he'll be mad." Oh, my God. This is so sick. How could A.J. do this to his own child?

Jason: Where is A.J.?

Skye: Right now I -- I don't know. I did just seem him a few hours ago at Michaelís playground. I just turned around and there he was. He gave me some story about needing money and a new identity, but I didn't know he had Michael with him. He told me some people were after him and they wanted to kill him, so I agreed to transfer funds into a phantom account.

Jason: Can you tell me the name on the account?

Skye: Martin Shipley.

Jason: And you already made the transfer?

Skye: Yes. The bank's going to call when the funds become available, and I'm supposed to call A.J. so I can meet him and go over the paperwork, but there's no way I'm going to help him now.

Jason: Yes, you will.

Reese: I understand you've been looking for me.

John: Yeah. I was surprised to get your call.

Reese: Ahem.

John: You all right?

Reese: I'm fine. Thanks for asking. I know you're not happy with my performance on the Sandoval case.

John: Yeah, well, you should've been removed from it weeks ago.

Reese: Yeah. And I know things have been tense since I ran into you at St. Agnes.

John: What do you want, Agent Marshall?

Reese: When you blew up my car, were you trying to scare me or did you want me dead?

Monica: If I had things to do over as a parent, I definitely would've made other choices. I never would've allowed Edward or Alan to pit you against Jason. I would've tried to make my life a little more stable. And I would've spent a lot more time with you, A.J. but I didnít. I can't make those things right. And as dreadful a parent as you seem to think I am, it does not justify what you're doing to Michael.

A.J.: What are you going to do? You going to call the police or Jason?

Alan: She's not going to call anybody.

A.J.: Mom, I'm not asking you to love me more than Jason. Just love me enough to keep Jason from killing me. Let me have my life and my son.

Monica: I haven't been a good mother. But you are my son, and I'm very glad you're alive. And I love you with all of my heart.

Monica: Oh! Let me go, you idiot!

Sonny: Well, he's got to be out there somewhere. Yes. Find him!

Carly: Max isn't finding anything?

Sonny: Not so far.

Carly: Did you get the message?

Jason: I just checked. Nothing. I didn't find any sign of Michael at the Quartermaines', but I did find the newspaper clipping about the playground in the attic.

Carly: Maybe that's why Michael showed up at the playground.

Sonny: No -- possibly, but we don't know for sure.

Jason: Okay, listen, I got a way to catch A.J.

Sonny: Okay. What?

Jason: Okay, Skye is helping A.J. She didn't know that Michael was involved, so now she's agreed to help us.

Carly: Do you trust her?

Jason: Not really, but Skye knows what A.J.'s doing to Michael is wrong. Anyway, she's transferring money into a fake account. She's going to meet with A.J. in person; she's going to give him the paperwork.

Sonny: Right?

Jason: But she's going to call us right before the meeting.

Carly: We'll show up, take Michael, and bring him home.

A.J.: Michael? Where have you been? Didn't you promise to stay here?

Michael: I did not promise.

A.J.: You scared me to death!

Michael: It's just like you said -- Mom and dad have Morgan, they don't need me anymore.

John: Yeah, you got to ask yourself now, how would it serve me to eliminate you?

Reese: Oh, come on, Durant. We both know you have a compelling reason for wanting me dead. Not an hour before my car blew up, I overheard you in a confessional accepting the bribe. That's right. I heard everything -- you confirming receipt of a money transfer by phone, you promising to buy witnesses to incriminate Sonny and Jason in the Sandoval killings. From where you stand, I'm awfully inconvenient.

John: You're not fooling me, Agent Marshall. Because I know exactly what you're up to.

Monica: You lock me in that freezer, I will never, ever forgive you! Alan -- Alan! Alan! Let me out of here!

Alan: Make yourself comfortable.

[Pounding on door]

Alan: I'll be back for you as soon as A.J. and Michael are safely out of town.

A.J.: That's why I wanted you to stay here. I just hope the bad guys didn't see you.

Michael: No one saw me.

A.J.: Not even your mom?

Michael: She was at the playground.

A.J.: That's what I was afraid of.

Michael: I ran away.

A.J.: Good.

Michael: She didn't come after me.

A.J.: I -- I know it hurts. But maybe now you can understand why I was trying to protect you. But, Michael, I'm not like them, okay? I would never give you away or replace you with anyone else. I love you.

Michael: I'm glad you're my real dad.

A.J.: So am I. So am I.

[Phone buzzes]

A.J.: Yeah. Good. Okay, thanks. Passports -- we've got them. Money's in place. We're ready to leave. We're on our trip around the world, buddy. No one's going to find us and we'll never come back here again.

Carly: Why hasn't Skye called?

Jason: She's going to call.

Sonny: What about Max?

Jason: I just spoke with him a couple minutes ago.

Carly: I should be out there looking.

Sonny: Not if Michael ran away from you, Carly. What do you mean, you're --

Carly: What if he's in trouble? What if he gets stuck like he was before? I can't -- I -- we have to get him and bring him back before A.J. poisons him for life.

[Phone rings]

Jason: Yeah.

Skye: Port Charles airport, on the tarmac where the private jets are, half an hour.

Jason: All right, thanks. That was Skye. She's supposed to meet A.J. on the airport tarmac in half an hour.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Reese: You're the one accepting bribe money.

John: You bet your sweet badge I am.

Alan: What are you doing here?

Sam: What's going on?

Jason: A.J.ís trying to leave town with Michael -- Sonny and I are going to stop him.

Sonny: A.J.ís not going to give up Michael without a fight.

Carly: I have to be there.

A.J.: Wait for me -- I got to tie up a few loose ends.
