Emily: Connor bishop raped me.
Emily: You don't look surprised. Nikolas, you already guessed it, didn't you?
Nikolas: Why didn't you tell me when it happened?
Jason: Michael -- michael!
Michael: Get away from me.
Jason: I looked for you from the day you were taken. You're finally home. Please. Buddy, I'm asking you, don't leave again. Oh, man. I know, I know it's tough.
Michael: I saw mom kill A.J.
Sonny: No sign of michael.
Carly: Oh, god. This is my fault. He ran away from me.
Sonny: No, it's not.
Sam: Hey, jason's coming. He has michael.
Jason: Michael. Michael --
Jason: Michael, it's ok.
Carly: Michael, are you all right?
Jason: Michael, come on, let's go -- we're just going to go upstairs. We're just going to go up -- michael, we're just going to go upstairs. Come on, come on. Michael, let's go. It's ok.
Sonny: Hey, hey, hey. Michael got to the gate, jason caught up to him, and -- but then -- I don't know -- you know, mike, he doesn't want anything to do with me or carly. So --
reese: Well, where is he now, sonny?
Sonny: Jan and sam took him upstairs.
Reese: I'm going to go check on him.
Carly: Wow. She's -- she's really gotten to you, huh?
Ric: Well, well, look at this. I have men watching sonny's house, and surprise, surprise, I get a call that my own wife is stalking the gate. What are you doing?
Alexis: I'm trying to show you that I've been calling you.
Ric: What is this, alexis?
Alexis: Stop talking. There's a witness that saw carly kill A.J.

Bobbie: Oh. What are you doing?
Nurse: I have to change the bandages.
Bobbie: Oh, no, you don'T. I've already taken care of it.
Skye: Bobbie, how's luke?
Bobbie: Oh, you know, honey, he's not so good, but the doctor feels that there's hope.
Skye: Oh, ok, well, do you mind if I go in and see him?
Bobbie: Oh, no, please do, because I'm sure he'd be very happy to see you.
Skye: Ok, thank you.
Bobbie: Ok. Why don't we give them a little privacy?
Luke: Come closer, for my sight is poor. Hold my hand. Give comfort to the man you love.
Skye: Luke, this is the worst idea you've ever had.
Luke: Hand, hold my hand.
Skye: Oh, for god's sake. We'll never be able to pull this off.
Luke: It's going like clockwork.
Skye: Famous last words.
Luke: No. If lucky and elizabeth set the bait correctly, she won't be able to resist coming back to finish off the job. Trust me.
Skye: Might I remind you that helena is very talented at murder, and she might get to you before you have a chance to defend yourself.
Luke: I'm very touched by your concern.
Skye: I'm just pointing out the cannonball-sized hole in your scheme.
Luke: There is no hole here. As soon as the batwoman swoops in, she's mine. And then we can get back to what's really important -- you telling me how you can't live without me.
Skye: Oh, stick to the stupid plan. I'll finish you off before helena gets the chance.
Luke: Hmm, hmm.
Nikolas: Why didn't you tell me?
Emily: I didn't want to burden you.
Nikolas: I could have helped you through it. We're married. That's what married people do. They help each other.
Emily: Yeah, I know, nikolas, but you've had enough to deal with, you know, being in prison for a murder that you didn't even commit.
Nikolas: I am so sorry.
Emily: Nikolas, it's not your fault.
Nikolas: I should have realized sooner. I'm so -- I'so sorry.
Emily: No, but how could you? Nikolas, I tried so hard to keep the truth from you, and I shouldn't have, but I was afraid.
Nikolas: Afraid of what?
Emily: That things would change between us, at you wouldn't feel the same about me.
Nikolas: Nothing will ever change how much I love you. You understand that?
Emily: I know, I know. Oh, god. Ok. I need to tell you what happened.
Nikolas: No, no.
Emily: Ok, all of it.
Nikolas: No, you don't have to. If it's too hard, you don't have to do that.
Emily: I owe it to you. Nikolas, I want you to know everything. Ok? I t the most beautiful letter from you that day, and I put it in my purse so that I could read it again and again. And I looked for it later, and it had been moved. And connor denied reading it, but when I came back from getting supplies --
connor: I found the strawberries in the refrigerator, but I think they're still good.
Emily: This is exactly what nikolas described in his letter. You took it out of my purse, and you read it.
Connor: Look, I didn't read the letter, all right?
Emily: So, this is all a coincidence? The candles? The strawberries? Do you honestly expect me to believe that? And word came that luke was closing in on helena. And I was so happy, realizing that you and I were going to be together again and that it was almost over. And then connor got drunk.
Connor: I know everything there is to know about nikolas, except what it's like to be with you.
Emily: Connor, stop.
Connor: Nikolas had my wife. Come on, why shouldn't I have his --
emily: Let go of me!
Connor: Come here -- go -- when I'm done -- when I'm done, then you'll understand. Ok, come here. Oh!
Emily: I fought him off. And I ran to the cellar, and I locked myself in. Get away from me!
Connor: Emily, it's almost over now, and I'll go back to the pen, and you can be with nikolas.
Emily: And then connor stopped talking, and I knew that I hato defend myself.
Emily: I tried to get the scissors, but connor grabbed me. And I slapped him. He slapped me back.
Nikolas: It's over. He's dead. He can't hurt you anymore.
Emily: No, it's not. Nikolas, every time that I think I'm getting past it, the memory comes back up again.
Nikolas: You'll be ok. You'll be ok. We'll get through this. Ok? It doesn't change who we are, ok? It doesn't change the love and the trust that we have for each other. It doesn't change any of that.
Emily: You're wrong, nikolas. It changes everything.
Carly: Well, that was interesting.
Sonny: What are you talking about?
Carly: You took one look at reese and jumped away like you were zapped with a stun gun.
Sonny: Well, now you're exaggerating, carly.
Carly: Oh, come on, sonny. You practically fell over yourself trying to explain why you were holding me.
Sonny: I just wanted reese to know what happened to michael. I mean, it's not a big deal.
Carly: You wanted reese to know that you're not currently sleeping with me.
Sonny: Are you through?
Carly: Hey, listen, no big deal. I mean, we're divorced, right? You're free to do whatever you want with omever you want. No explanations, no strings, right?
Carly: So you've grown closer to her. No big deal. Why can't you just say it?
Sonny: Well, I care about her.
Sam: Hey, you ok?
Reese: Not really. I'm an F.B.I. Agent who's turning into a nanny -- for a mobster, no less.
Sam: Not quite the job you signed up for.
Reese: That's the understatement of the year. I got to get off this case.
Sam: Are you sure about that?
Reese: Yes. No, no, I -- I don't even know what I want anymore.
Sam: Complicated, isn't it?
Reese: You think I'm getting personally involved?
Sam: I think you're finding out that it's very easy to fall in love with sonny.
Jason: You gave us a scare, michael. We thought we lost you again. This is your home and your family. We all love you, especially your mom and your dad. You want to tell me where you were going? What you were running from?
Alexis: Michael was there. He saw carly kill A.J.
Ric: Are you suggesting that I put michael on the stand to testify against his own mother?
Alexis: I'm not suggesting anything. I'm simply telling you that michael is an eyewitness to murder.
Ric: He's also a little boy who has just recently gone through a traumatic experience. Alexis, I put him on the stand, it's going to put him through hell
alexis: It'll be a lot worse for him to harbor a secret like that. I don't know how you handle it, but you're the district attorney. You need to take some kind of action. Carly killed A.J.
Ric: Ok, wait. Look, sonny has custody of kristina. You may not like that. But if you think that nailing carly for A.J.'S murder is going to get your daughter back, then you are sadly mistaken.
sonny: Reese was assigned to the kidnapping. Her job was to find the kids.
Carly: She's an F.B.I. Agent. You're on opposite sides of the law, but you decided to trust her.
Sonny: We needed her, carly. I gave her confidential information about my business and my contacts so she would have a list of suspects. Now, at any point, she could have used that information against me, and she didn'T. I guess the case, you know, was getting a little personal for her.
Carly: I noticed.
Sonny: Ok, yeah, well, diyou also know that reese lost a child of her own and she's determined to save mine?
Carly: So when michael, morgan, and kristina were back, her job was to build a case against you, right?
Sonny: Ok. Withholding the evidence that she had on me could have cost reese her job, ok? She told durant that the information was not conclusive.
Carly: Because she started caring about you.
Sonny: She cares about michael, carly. Now, she got through to michael when no one else could. I mean, you got to admit tha she knows something about this trauma stuff -- what to say, what not to say. I mean, you know --
carly: He still needs his family.
Sonny: We are here, but she's been able to calm him down when we couldn'T. That's not about her, you know, her job or some personal agenda. She's putting aside her own pain to help my son. That matters to me.
Carly: So you're really getting serious about her, aren't you?
Sonny: You know what? What does that have to do with anything?
Carly: No. It doesn'T. You're not a naive man, sonny. If you trust her, then I'll accept that.
Sonny: You didn't before.
Carly: Our marriage is over. We're both moving on, doing different things, you know? I've got my life, you've got yours. You and I are the parents of two beautiful kids. That's it.
Reese: I am not going to fall for sonny. We come from completely different lives. I don't want to get involved with him. It just -- it wouldn't work.
Sam: Ok, but this is not about what you want, ok? You can't stop the way you feel about him or rationalize your way out of it.
Reese: But I'm not going to put myself in a no-win situation. I can't be vulnerable to this man.
Sam: You are in his house, and you are looking after his son.
Reese: All right, I came here to do a job, and I'm going to finish that job, and I'm going to move on, because this is an assignment and this is nothing more.
Lucky: Helena cassadine, I want you to co out of hiding, you pathetic witch!
Elizabeth: Ok, lucky, put the gun down.
Lucky: Oh, no. No, no, no. You know what? No. She's going to pay for what she did, shooting my father and leaving him for dead.
Elizabeth: This is crazy! You don't even know if she's here!
Lucky: Oh, no, no. She's here. She's here. You know what? She's probably down in the wine cellar right now picking out some priceless bottle of wine so she can celebrate the occasion. My father's not dead, helena. Do you hear me? He's not dead! You know what? My father's going to be dancing on your grave while you're rotting six feet under!
Elizabeth: Ok, this isn't going to solve anything. You cannot fight vionce with violence. The spencer-cassadine feud has gone on long enoug and it's got to stop!
Lucky: No, no, helena has to pay for what she did.
Elizabeth: Ok, fine, we'll just figure out another way. I mean, the woman has committed a crime. We'll just have her arrested.
Lucky: Oh, and now when has helena ever been convicted for whatever she's done in life?
Elizabeth: Ok, look, I don't have the answers, but I do know that seeking revenge isn't it, lucky. Do you remember how you and your brother vowed to end the cycle of hatred between your families? Lucky, your father is lying in a hospital bed right now because of the spencer-cassadine feud. And that's exactly where you should be -- in the hospital with your dad, because he needs you.
Lucky: Ok, all right. No, wait -- thank you, I'm sorry. You know what? You're right. You're right, elizabeth.
Elizabeth: Now can we get out of here, because this place gives me the creeps when it's empty. Come on, let's go.
Lucky: All right.
Nikolas: You knew me for years before you even met connor. You just -- you need to remember that and listen to your heart, that's all.
Emily: You're trying to make sense of this, nikolas, but you can't, ok? I can'T. It's too twisted.
Nikolas: Hey, look, we just -- we need to start somewhere, emily.
Emily: I'm sorry -- I can't do this with you. Whenever I look at you, I see connor. Whenever you touch me, it's connor's hands I feel, and when you look at me, you can see that I see connor!
Nikolas: No, no, no, it's not true. That's not true.
Emily: You can't help it.
Nikolas: Listen, you're my wife. I love you, forever. Nothing will ever change that. You've been a victim of a crime, and you just -- you just need to heal, ok? But we're in this together, all right? I just need you to believe in us, and let me in, please? Will you just let me in? Please, we've been through so much. We can get through this, too.
Emily: Nikolas, I can'T.
Nikolas: Wait, no -- no! No, don't leave! Please don't --
nikolas: Don't leave me! Don't leave me.
skye: I don't know why I agreed to help you.
Luke: I'm irresistible?
Skye: Oh, yeah, that, or I was temporarily insane.
Skye: Oh, look, I know why we're doing it. We're flushing helena out of hiding, we're getting nikolas out of prison, but must it all be accomplished with a kevlar vest, phony blood, and a bogus gunshot wound?
Luke: This particular plot demanded a certain dramatic flair.
Skye: Oh, for god's sake luke. Oh, luke, luke!
Tracy: Oh, please, it's only me. Of all the convoluted schemes.
Skye: Please, we've been over that.
Luke: Look, you two, helena is not going to show up and risk getting caught or, hopefully, killed without providing her with some incentive.
Tracy: Helena believes that I siphoned off her money. She's not the kind of woman to laugh it off when somebody crosses her. Correction -- she'll kill you first, then she'll laugh that off.
Luke: Would you calm down and relax.
Tracy: Oh, you're right. I do get edgy when I'm waiting for my throat to be cut!
Luke: I'm mber one on her hit list. She's not coming after you until she's sure I'm dead.
Elizabeth: Hey. Ok, so lucky wanted me to tell you that the bait was laid and hopefully helena heard us and bought it.
Luke: Cool. You know the plan.
Elizabeth: Yeah, I'll just be working at the nurses' desk.
Skye: And I'll be reading the newspaper in the waiting area.
Tracy: Oh -- I'll be decoding my nancy drew ring.
Luke: Could you decode in a wheelchair and try and blend in with the geriatric patients?
Tracy: That's funny!
Luke: Hmm. Everybody keep a lookout for a sweet, unassuming nun.
Skye: A nun?
Luke: Yeah, she's got a perverse sense of disguise.
Skye: And if she decides to wear something entirely different?
Luke: Well, then I'd watch for a tall, thin woman in $1,200 shoes or an effete man with nail polish and a magnum.
Skye: Yeah, luke. This plan is absolutely foolproof.
Luke: Make yourself useful.
Tracy: Oh, I'm not going anywhere. Helena would just as soon shoot me as look at me.
Luke: Not until I'm dead. I told you.
Tracy: You told me that I couldn't survive without you as my bodyguard, so now's your chance to walk the walk. Protect me, already.
Elizabeth: No sign of helena.
Lucky: Yeah. Here comes emily.
Elizabeth: Hey. So did you see nikolas, and did you tell him?
Lucky: Ahem. Hey.
Emily: Hey, what's going on? Does this have anything to do with luke being shot?
Lucky: No, no, no, dad's ok. He was wearing a bulletproof vest when he got shot.
Elizabeth: We're setting a trap for helena.
Lucky: Yeah, we're hoping that she's going to show up and finish the job.
Ric: We have substantial enough evidence against carly without michael's testimony.
Alexis: The last thing that I want to do is put that little boy through amy more pain. But maybe testifying will help him.
Ric: Against his own mother?
Alexis: I saw him. He's terrified. That's a horrible secret for a little boy to keep.
Judge hunter: D.A. Lansing, please come in.
John: I understand ric called the judge to get a subpoena in the A.J. Quartermaine murder case?
Alexis: Word travels fast.
John: Who's it for?
Alexis: Michael. He was in the room when carly killed A.J. He's an eyewitness.
John: Oh, my god.
Alexis: Sonny's keeping him in the compound.
John: Yeah, I'm sure. I'm sure he's doing whatever he can to protect him. Michael's been through enough already.
Alexis: S, he has. I thought this was the only way, but now I'm not so sure.
John: Are you kidding? This is perfect.
Sonny: Ahem. There's something I have to say.
Reese: Oh, sonny, if I've gotten too personal --
sonny: No, no, no, no --
reese: Or crossed the line in any way.
Sonny: No, just -- I just want to thank you.
Reese: I'm just doing my job.
Sonny: No, you've done more than that, you know. I got to be honest with you. I -- I thought you were here to take me down, you know? And you've pretty much proven that that's not the case, ok? And you went above and beyond, you know, as far as the kids and trying to find the kids and all that stuff, and even after found out michael was alive, you could have walked away, case closed, right?
Reese: Michael is traumatized.
Sonny: Yeah, but that's what I'm trying to say. You care.
Reese: I do.
Sonny: You know how to handle him, ok? What to say, what to do. I thank god you're here because I've got to tell you you've been the only one who's been able to connect with my son. And, you know, I mean, I don't really think he could have gotten through this without you. And that means a lot to me.
Reese: Thank you.
Sonny: So, you know -- your life is all about the decisions you make.
john: Look, we have to keep moving forward.
Alexis: By having your own grandson incriminate his own mother?
John: Michael is going to have to testify against carly in a courtroom full of people. Sonny will never let that happen. That is why this is perfect.
Alexis: And you're sure of that? You're sure that he's going to confess to spare carly and michael?
John: Yeah. You'd better hope for the same thing because if sonny does confess, you retain custody of kristina. Huh?
Alexis: You make it sound awfully simple.
John: Well, you got to admit, it's effective. Sonny will do whatever he can to protect his children, even if it means going to prison.
Alexis: He'll do anything he can but change his lifestyle. So if he goes to prison, my daughter's safe, so that's what I want. That's why I'm justifying this. I don't think I can do it.
John: You're not going -- you don't have to fabricate any evidence. Michael has already said what he saw. The court knows about it. All we have to do is sit right back, let the events unfold. Sonny walks into that courtroom, confesses, and we both get our daughters back.
Jason: I was just putting michael to bed. You want to go up and say good night?
Carly: Yeah. Thanks.
Jason: Yeah? You -- are you ok?
Carly: Not really.
Jason: Michael -- he's going to let you back in. It's just going to take some time.
Carly: No, I know. It's not that.
Jason: Ok, then what is it?
Carly: Sonny and I were talking about reese, and he admitted that he has feelings for her. I don't know, I guess I just thought it was one of those passing things, you know, whenever sonny throws on the charm and the woman buys it, and 20 minutes later he loses interest.
Jason: Well, you know, this could turn out to be the same thing.
Carly: No, jason, you should've heard him. He was going on and on about how great reese is, how she's really connected with michael. I'm just so glad he stopped before telling me how hot she is.
Jason: Look, look, sonny went through hell when michael was kidnapped.
Carly: We all did.
Jason: Yeah, you're right. You're right, we all did. But to sonny, reese helped him through.
Carly: God, please don't tell -- I don't want you to be telling this to me, too.
Jason: Ok, tell me you didn't tell him that it was wrong to trust her.
Carly: No, I didn't, I didn'T. I said all the right things. I did. I said that, you know, we're divorced and we're moving on, and I -- I just want him to be happy.
Jason: Aren't you happy?
Carly: I don't know what is wrong with me, jason. I wanted the divorce, I agreed to it, but I just can'T. I don't know why it hurts so much to hear him talk about caring for another woman.
Jason: Well, because sonny and you have loved each other for a long time. It just doesn't disappear overnight.
Carly: No, I know. The divorce is just paper. You know, I mean, we've just -- we've shared so many things and we have so many memories and we're in each other's lives, and it's not just because he's the father of my children. I just -- I don't want to lose that. You know, I don't -- you know, I'm just selfish. I mean, that's really the problem here.
Jason: Well, sometimes you are, carly.
Carly: Uh -- well, I didn't really need for you to agree with me.
Jason: Well, listen. It's ok. It's ok to have mixed feelings about sonny moving on.
Carly: I'm moving on. It's just I don't want sonny to move on. I don't want him to be happy with reese or any other woman. I want reese to turn out to be a liar and a snake so that sonny will come to me and say, well, "what the hell was I thinking?" I just -- I want him to realize that I -- that no one can take my place.
Jason: Is that what you think about sonny? That no one will ever take his place?
Carly: God, I hope not. You know what? I just don't want to dwell on this anymore because I got to really focuon the person that really needs me. My son. I just --
Tracy: You owe me, luke spencer. You are the one that got me into this hideous mess.
Luke: Where's your sense of adventure?
Tracy: It doesn't include knives and guns!
Luke: Tracy, calm down. Just relax and trust me.
Tracy: Ooh! Trust you? Now I know I'm in trouble.
Luke: I thought you were the quartermaine with all the spunk. You're gutsy, you're strong, you're capable of pulling off the most nefarious scheme.
Tracy: I'd like to live to scheme again. You, on the other hand, love to flirt with death. You are an adrenaline junkie.
Luke: And proud of it. When I get my hands on helena, I'm going to snap her neck.
Luke: But I'll tell you, I hate to admit this, but I'm going to miss her when she's gone.
Tracy: Have you been stealing medication off the nurse's cart again?
Luke: She gets me all fired up. She makes me feel alive.
Tracy: You need a new hobby.
Luke: No, what I'm going to need is a new playmate, someone to spar with. What about you, spunky? U want to give me a whirl?
Tracy: Don't even think about it.
Luke: Wrong room, doctor.
Helena: Killing you is really getting to be a chore.
Jason: Just try and get some sleep, ok? I'll come over tomorrow and we'll toss a ball around.
Carly: You're settling into your life now, with all the things that you like to do and the people that you love. And I'm going to be with you here, sweetheart. Because the truth is going to come out. I didn't kill A.J., And I would never do anything that would take me away from you.
Sonny: Ok, good.
Max: Ok. Hi.
Sam: Sonny. Look, I'm probably out of line with this, so please feel free to tell me to stop, shut up, whatever, that I'm wrong, whenever you feel like it, ok?
Sonny: What's wrong?
Sam: It reese, ok?
Sam: In my opinion, I think that she has gone way past being an F.B.I. Agent. It's not just a job to her anymore, all right? You matter to her, michael matters to her, and I don't think she would do anything to take you away from your son. And I don't think that she is looking for a reason to send you to prison anymore.
Sonny: Sam, for the record, it is none of your business, all right? But you didn't have to tell me because I already know.
Helena: I'm here to reclaim the money you stole from me.
Tracy: That luke stole from you to -- to get you out of hiding!
Helena: Details are irrelevant.
Tracy: He did it without my cooperation. In fact, I warned him not to do it!
Helena: Too bad he didn't listen.
Tracy: Look, I don't want the money.
Helena: Take your hand off the gun, luke.
Luke: What gun?
Helena: No, don't play me for a fool. You'd never remain silent this long unless you were trying to trick me. Now stop trying to nurse your grievances and put both hands up where I can see them.
Luke: No problem.
Helena: Call the bank. Ask them to wire a transfer to this account.
Emily: Oh, my god.
Helena: Yes, my dear. It is I, the granny from hell.
Helena: Don't even think it, luke.
Luke: What happened to my crack team of lookouts?
Helena: They're following a woman dressed as a nun. Really, luke, did you think I would be that predictable?
Tracy: Can we just get this over with?
Helena: I've changed my mind. I want cash.
Tracy: Oh, come on, helena! Where am I going to get that kind of cash on a moment's -- notice.
Helena: Well, take your time. Nikolas' unsuitable bride will accompany me for insurance. She'll be released when I get the money.
Luke: Let her go. Shs got nothing to do with this. Tracy will get your cash.
Helena: Didn't I tell you not to play me for a fool? Now, we're going to walk out of this hospital.
Tracy: Helena, luke is right. I will get the cash. Just give me 24 hours. Give me 12 hours.
Helena: Oh, you are so tiresome. I'll be in touch.
Helena: Keep moving. Though, it'd give me a distinct pleasure to use this gun. Out of the elevator, or I'll shoot her.
Elizabeth: Oh, god.
Reese: Is michael still awake?
Jason: I put him to bed.
Reese: Is it too late to say good night?
Carly: He's already asleep.
Ric: Sonny, I'm sorry. This is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I don't liket, but it's my job.
Sonny: Just tell me what it is, ric.
Ric: It's a subpoena calling michael to testify.
Reese: For what?
Ric: We have reason to believe that michael saw carly kill A.J.
Carly's voice: I didn't kill A.J., and I would never do anything that would take me away from you.
>> On the next "general hospital" --
Emily: Shoot her! Do it now!
John: Ric has conflicts of interest.
Alexis: He's not going to blow the case.
Carly: You want to drag a year-old into court?
Sonny: Do not put my son through any more pain.
Michael: A.J. Had to be stopped.
Reese: Oh, god, michael.
