Emily's voice: When I look at you, I see Connor.

Alexis: I am so, so happy to see you.

Nikolas: Oh, the feeling is mutual.

Alexis: Hmm. I'm glad you're home and this nightmare is over for both you and Emily.

Lucky: Hey.

Emily: Hi.

Lucky: I -- I just heard that the safe house basement was gutted by a fire. So please, please tell me that you didn't have anything to do with this.

Emily: Look, I thought it might help if I went back, and Nikolas offered to go with me. Once we were there, he got the idea that burning the place down might make it easier for me to move on.

Lucky: Did it work?

Lorenzo: I made a substantial investment in E.L.Q. I expect the company to turn a profit, which means removing Tracy as C.E.O.

Skye: Consider it handled.

Lorenzo: I like your confidence. In fact, I can't wait to see how you're going to do this.

Skye: Neither can I.

Tracy: There's no way you're getting that money out of E.L.Q.

Luke: No? Sounds challenging.

Tracy: Let me make this perfectly clear once and for all. You have about as much chance of putting your hands on that money as you do of putting your hands on me.

Reese: Now that Michael knows what's happened, why don't you let the truth come out, Jason? No one is going to blame him. He won't be held legally responsible. It will be a simple hearing, and that's it.

Jason: Michael's parents get to decide what's best for him, not me.

Reese: Ignoring the truth isn't best for anybody, and for Michael it would be a disaster.

Michael: You said you killed A.J. to protect me, didn't you, dad?

Emily: When I stood in that basement with Nikolas, Lucky, all of these images started coming up, you know? Like Connor overpowering me, like, tearing at my clothes --

Lucky: I know, and it had to be rough.

Emily: Look, burning the place down was a way to end it, Lucky. I know it's crazy, but we're going to pay for the damages.

Lucky: I don't care about that building. What I am worried about is you and Nikolas.

Emily: Look, in a perfect world, destroying the place where I was raped would've destroyed the memories, too.

Lucky: Did it work? You ever thought about moving back into Wyndemere with Nikolas? It's possible, it could help.

Emily: I can't be that close to him, Lucky, not yet. We've decided to live apart.

Lucky: For how long?

Emily: Right now, we haven't really set a time limit.

Lucky: Nikolas ok with that?

Emily: Yeah, he's been understanding; he's been supportive. Couldn't really ask for anything more.

Lucky: Then I want you to try and be that understanding with yourself. This is going to take time. I do believe that you and Nikolas will get through this.

Emily: You know, it helped a lot watching that place burn down.

Lucky: Yeah.

Emily: And it felt good having Nikolas with me. It was a start, Lucky.

Nikolas: Emily's staying at her parents' for the time being.

Alexis: What?

Nikolas: Yeah.

Alexis: You've been away for a long time. I expected the two of you to be inseparable.

Nikolas: I know. It's just she -- she went through a lot while I was away and just needs some time to adjust.

Alexis: I know how much the two of you love each other, and if there's something going on now, I'm sure it will pass quickly.

Nikolas: Thank you, thank you. I hope so, too.

Alexis: I'm sorry I dragged my feet with the appeal. It --

Nikolas: Alexis, come on. Kristina was kidnapped. I think that takes precedence and, besides, as it turned out, I didn't need the appeal after all, right?

Alexis: That is very generous of you. Thank you.

Nikolas: You're a mother first before you're an aunt and certainly before you're a lawyer. I understand that.

Alexis: I hope you understand this, too.  This is for you.

Nikolas: $500,000?

Alexis: I borrowed that from the Cassadine estate. All right, I stole that from the Cassadine estate. I'm paying you back in full. I hope you forgive me.

Nikolas: Yeah, you're -- you're forgiven. You're welcome to any money you need anytime, but why did you need it?

Alexis: I paid a federal prosecutor named John Durant to buy witnesses and manufacture charges against Sonny.

Lorenzo: My primary goal is to establish myself as a legitimate businessperson, using E.L.Q. as my corporate base. And under my leadership I expect the company to double in size within a year.

Skye: Well. There are other companies with better resources than E.L.Q. Why not go after one of those?

Lorenzo: None of them have a connection to Carly.

Luke: You know, there are certain woman who can just walk into a room and you can't take your eyes off them. You've always been one of those women for me.

Tracy: I love it when you flirt with me. The money's staying right where it is.

Luke: Tracy, the money isn't yours, and I'm the one who dumped it into your account.

Tracy: You're on my Christmas-card list. What more do you want?

Luke: There are people who feel the money should go back where it belongs.

Tracy: That money brought E.L.Q. back from the brink, secured my position as C.E.O., and there is no way I'm giving that up, even for you.

Sam: "If you are pregnant, the strip will turn blue."

Reese: Once Michael admits to killing A.J., he can put the whole thing behind him and start to heal. And until he does that he will always be a prisoner of what he did. Jason, this little boy needs therapy.

Jason: No, he's going to be all right. He's got people to look out for him.

Reese: Like Sonny, sacrificing himself by going to prison? Do you honestly believe that Michael will feel good about that?

Jason: I know you won’t.

Reese: All right, what's that supposed to mean, huh? You think I have an agenda here?

Jason: Well, nothing's going to happen between you and Sonny if he's in prison.

Reese: My concern is for Michael.

Jason: Good. Then respect his parents' decision.

Ric: You know, if the truth doesn't come out, Sonny's going to prison. But that's nothing compared to the sentence that you, Carly, and Sonny are going to be imposing on Michael.

Sonny: Hey, buddy, listen to me, ok? I wish I could tell you exactly what I'm doing, but it's complicated and you may not --

Michael: I killed A.J.! Why should you go to prison for at I did?

Sonny: No, no -- where you going, buddy?

Michael: To tell the police.

Carly: Michael, no --

Sonny: Listen, listen, all right? You're not going to the police.

Michael: But I'm the one who killed A.J.

Sonny: Telling the police is not the answer to anything.

Michael: But shouldn't I be in prison instead of you?

Sonny: No, because it was not your fault. You were scared, you were confused, you didn't know what you were doing.

Michael: Jason told me something. You know how you sprain your wrist? Your hand doesn't work right. That can happen to your mind, and it happened to me.

Carly: Jason's right, sweetheart. You were sick from what A.J. did to you. Now that you're better, it's our job to take care of you.

Sonny: And you don't have to worry about me going to prison, because you know what? No one's going to take you away from me. I'm telling you that right now, but I got to figure out what to do here, ok? And I'm going to need your help here.

Michael: How?

Sonny: Come here. Ok, listen to me. You, Morgan, your mama -- you're going on a trip, all right? And I'm going to need you to take care of your mama, all right, while I settle things here once and for all.

Michael: What's going to happen when you're done?

Sonny: I'm never going to let you out of my sight, buddy.

Jason: Hey, we need to get going.

Sonny: Yeah, ok. Listen to me. You're going to be a good boy, right? And you take care of your mama?

Michael: I love you, dad.

Sonny: I love you, too. All right. Everything's going to work out fine. Go. Go. Go.

Ric: Got to hand it to you, Sonny. I thought this whole noble act was an attempt to protect your son, but I understand your true motive. You want Michael to turn out just like you.

Alexis: Turns out my plan with Durant was unnecessary because Michael saw Carly kill A.J. He was subpoenaed, and Sonny confessed to the murder so that Michael wouldn't have to testify.

Nikolas: Will he go to prison?

Alexis: Maybe for 20 years.

Nikolas: Shouldn't you be happy about that?

Alexis: Oh, there's nothing about this that makes me happy, least of all the fact that Ric is very disappointed in me; he's very angry.

Nikolas: You still love him, though?

Alexis: More than I ever thought possible. But I need to protect my daughter.

Nikolas: You know, I'm probably not the person to be giving marital advice right now, but I know this. I got so caught up in battling Helena that -- that I forgot what was important to me. And I made a mistake and I paid for it. I'd really hate to see that happen to you.

Lucky: Going back to that safe house -- that was a huge step. Facing what Connor did to you will lead to a breakthrough.

Emily: Oh, I'm not thinking about breakthroughs, Lucky. You know, one step at a time -- it's about all I can deal with.

Lucky: I understand, and I agree. I think you should go at your own pace. I've been through this with Elizabeth, you know? And I do believe that you need your family and friends there to support you

Emily: Yeah, I'm going to do everything I can to get past this. I'm going to get professional help; I'm going to call on my family and friends.

Lucky: Good.

Emily: You know, whatever it takes. But my situation is a little more complicated than Elizabeth’s. You know, she was raped by a stranger, someone who grabbed her in a park wearing a mask. It was brutal and -- and wrong, but it's different than what I'm dealing with. I was raped by a man with my husband's face.

Skye: Well, you're certainly methodical. You become an upstanding citizen on the board of a well-respected company. Carly sees you as an alternative to Sonny, and you finally win the woman of your dreams.

Lorenzo: In a perfect world.

Skye: What if that outcome's a little less than perfect?

Lorenzo: I've still acquired a significant share of E.L.Q. If nothing else, it's a good foundation for Diego. Now that we've addressed how I stand to benefit, why don't we discuss you? Am I right in assuming that you're cultivating me to make Luke Spencer jealous?

Skye: Am I that obvious?

[Lorenzo chuckles]

Lorenzo: I'm not complaining. I'd like to help you get what you want. But why a woman of your caliber would waste time on Luke is beyond me.

Skye: Well, I could ask the same thing about you with Carly. Haven't you noticed that she's a single-minded, self-absorbed, supremely ungrateful person?

Lorenzo: Touché. To each their own. I look forward to hearing how Tracy’s been removed as C.E.O. It's good for the company, and it's good for both of us.

Tracy: Do you work at being insufferable, or does it just come naturally, kind of like perfect pitch?

Luke: Oh, I have that, too -- as long as I pitch underhand. But that wouldn't work on you, would it? Because you always play hardball.

Tracy: You don't know me as well as you think you do, Luke.

Luke: Maybe it's time that changed. Did you ever have an around-the-world martini? Puts you in orbit immediately, and then it gives you a nice, smooth, soft landing.

Tracy: Uh -- no, thanks. Don't think I'll give you the opportunity to drug me again.

Skye: Well. I see you were unsuccessful at trying to pry that Cassadine money away from Tracy’s grubby little hands.

Luke: Oh, I'll get the money. I think the question is, how far do you want me to go to get it?

Luke: So, on a scale of one to ten, how badly do you want me to get that Cassadine money away from Tracy?

Skye: 10. No, one. I -- why are you asking?

Luke: Tracy's whole future as C.E.O. of the family dynasty is tied up to that money. That means she's going to make it very, very hard to trace.

Skye: Well, Luke, there's got to be a way. There always is.

Luke: We have to have the bank codes of wherever it is she put the money. That means we have to get into her computer.

Skye: Tracy just did a whole overhaul on the E.L.Q. security system -- which could work to our advantage.

Luke: What kind of a system did she install?

Skye: Fingerprint-access only.

Luke: Great! I just happen to have her fingerprints all over this glass. Now, all we need are uniforms.

Skye: And we pose as security guards and wait till the computer is free, and then we just break in there fast and we -- oh, my God. What am I saying? I swore I'd never do this again.

Luke: Never say never, darling.

Dillon: I do mean it, though. I meant do you know how much I owe you for everything? If it weren't for you, my career as a director would've been over before it started. That's a fact.

Georgie: No, Dillon. I am sure that you would've changed your mind somewhere along the line.

Dillon: No, no, I wouldn't, because I know me, and I would've spent the rest of my life in Port Charles kicking myself for letting Luke Spencer talk me into helping him break Faith out of prison, and you didn't let that happen. You know, you turned me around, and now I -- I am actually on my way to becoming a director like I've always dreamed. That's --

Georgie: You know -- um -- life in Port Charles would've been interesting.

Dillon: It's not exactly a film mecca.

Georgie: No, it's not, but there's friends and there's some family.

Dillon: There's you.

Georgie: Yeah.

Dillon: You -- smart, beautiful, lovely, perfect. Beautiful -- I said that, didn't I? You look -- you know that every film I direct is going to be dedicated to you, right? And when I'm up there accepting my Oscar, I'm going to tell every single one of those billions of people that you made it happen.

Georgie: Dillon, I'm sure you're going to have plenty of other people to thank at that point.

Dillon: I'm -- I'm going to school. I'm not breaking up with you.

Georgie: No, I know. I know.

 [Door opens]

Sam: Hey. Is everyone ok?

Michael: My dad's in jail for killing A.J. and he didn't even do it!

Carly: Remember what your father said, ok? He promised you he's going to be all right.

Michael: How? When is dad going to get out of jail?

Carly: You know how you can help your father -- by going on this trip with me and Morgan and doing your best to watch out for us.

Michael: I'm not going.

Jason: Michael, it's the best way to help your dad.

Michael: No, it's not! Dad's stuck in jail, and all he's doing is just covering for me.

[Jason sighs]

[Michael runs up the stairs]

Ric: You know, I couldn't understand why you wouldn't want Michael to go through therapy.  Now that the truth is out, why you still insisted on going to prison.

Sonny: What does it matter, Ric? Sending me to Pentonville is only going to do wonders for your career.

Ric: You better think real long and hard about what you are teaching Michael, ok? Like, kill your enemies, lie to the police about it, cover it up, go to prison if necessary, and then -- but never, under any circumstances, trust the authorities. Is that right?

Sonny: Don't tell me how to take care of my son, Ric.

Ric: Look, just because you're a parent doesn't automatically make you right, Sonny. At the very least, you are hurting Michael. You are paving the way for him to follow you into a business, into a way of life that has done nothing but cause you grief and misery! Now, I don't know about you, but I would want my son to have better than that. I wouldn't want him to be continually hurt. Sonny, he's starting to look at himself as a danger to those around him, even the people that he loves. Who does that sound like? He's sounding just like you.

Sonny: Do your job!

Ric: Look --

Sonny: Stop bothering me about Michael!

Ric: Michael -- just admit that Michael killed A.J., all right? I swear to you I will get nothing more than a hearing put on him, a court-appointed therapist. We can -- we can show that he was traumatized, that he --

Sonny: My son will not be branded a killer!

Ric: Michael knows what he did; you have to help him deal with it.

Sonny: He's 9 years old!  I got to protect him!

Ric: Then do it! Do it, and stop playing around this time!

Sonny: No! We're doing it my way!

Ric: Forget it, he's not going to budge.

Reese: I have an idea.

Alexis: I don't imagine that you've had much time to think about Kristina, but you should know that she's back in my custody.

Sonny: Didn't waste any time, did you, Alexis?

Alexis: I have a court order to back it up. As long as you are in prison, you forfeit your rights as a parent.

Skye: I am not going to get mixed up into another one of your schemes. There will be no more knives or guns or car chases or secret meetings in the middle of the night with guys named Louie the Bump, ok? I am a legitimate businesswoman and I am going to --. Oh.

Luke: Why resist temptation? It has so much to offer.

Skye: Consider yourself resisted.

Luke: Are you trying to tell me I don't put a smile on your whole body?

Skye: Oh, Luke, you can pretty much talk me into anything. You make it sound like some great adventure, but inevitably people get hurt.

Luke: It's not always inevitably. You know, I mean, there are risks, there are occupational hazards.

Skye: Count me out, ok? Now, you get that money back from Tracy any way that you can. I don't want anything to do with it.

Georgie: I know we're going to see each other over holidays and over spring break, but --

Dillon: And I'm going to talk to you every night on the phone, and twice a night, if you ever want.

Georgie: About what, Dillon? I mean, my dorky chemistry test or student council elections or --

Dillon: No, I don't think you get it. It's just hearing your voice. That's -- that's --

Georgie: Dillon, it's going to be that way at first, and then you're going to get bored.

Dillon: No, I'm not. I'm not going to get bored. That's impossible.

Georgie: Dillon, I'm going to be living in Port Charles with my parents, and you're going to be in California living your dream and going tall those fancy Hollywood parties.

Dillon: I'm going to be studying at the library.

Georgie: Reading magazines. Dillon, you and I both know that's not how the film industry works. You, ow, you got to mix and you got to mingle, and everyone's out to impress each other, you know? I mean, every -- no, I'm serious! Every actress is prettier than the next and, Dillon, they're all going to want you.

Dillon: All right, ok. If -- if that were to happen -- which it's not -- and if I were somehow at a Hollywood party, and under the one-in-a-million chance that some actress hit on me -- which is completely and utterly ridiculous -- but if it did happen, I would tell her that I have a girl at home with whom I am completely and utterly in love, and that this girl is perfect and smart and funny. And then what I'm going to do is I'm going to take photos of you and show them to this hypothetical actress one by one by one until I drive her screaming back to her nutritionist.

Georgie: Do you mean it?

Dillon: Yes. Georgie, you are my girl -- east coast, west coast, everywhere in between.

Sonny: What do you want from me? Understanding? Approval? You want me to say you did the right thing by tearing down to the family court and getting yet another piece of paper that forbids me to see my child? How long do you think this one's going to last?

Alexis: Hopefully until she's 18.

Sonny: Must be hell being you, Alexis. You know, you're so possessive of your child you can't function when she's not around. What happens when she's at my place? Are you outside the gate?

[Sonny snaps his fingers]

Sonny: You know what? Actually, you probably were outside the gate the night Michael got hysterical, right? He had the nightmare; he didn't know what was real, what was a dream. Jason found him at the gate. You were probably outside there, right, lurking around, right? Is that right?

Alexis: Don't be absurd.

Sonny: You heard Michael say that Carly killed A.J., so you went straight to Ric and got Michael subpoenaed.

Alexis: I did what I was obligated to do as an officer of the court.

Sonny: Hurting one of my kids is wrong. How do you live with yourself?

Michael: I'm not leaving dad in jail, I am not going anywhere, and you cannot make me.

Carly: Michael, wait!

Jason: Carly, don’t.

Carly: What?

Jason: Ok --

Carly: Why not?

Jason: Because you're losing it. It's not going to be good for Michael.

Sam: Jason, why don't -- do you want me to go up there?

Jason: Yeah, yeah, please.

Carly: Ok, Michael needs his mother.

Jason: Ok, not the way you are right now. Sam, please, just do what you can to calm Michael down.

Carly: Ok, first Reese, and then Sam? Why does everyone's girlfriend get to talk to my son but me?

Jason: This isn't about anybody else! Michael was afraid of you until about 24 hours ago. He's worried; he's upset about Sonny. You go up there like this; it's only going to make things worse, Carly.

Carly: Michael needs to understand what's going on so we can take him out of the country.

Jason: Michael is in a bad way. You can't force that kid to leave; it defeats the purpose!

Carly: Ok. Do you have another suggestion?

Jason: Maybe we should just let him confess.

Nikolas: You have $15 million that belongs to me. I want it returned by the end of the day.

Tracy: Hello to you. Is that what they taught you in prison -- how to extort money from your wife's family? Get out of here before I call the cops.

Nikolas: Go ahead, call them. In the meantime, while we're waiting for the police, I'll go ahead and call the press and tell them that that money just somehow magically disappeared from the Cassadine accounts and ended up here at E.L.Q. My guess would be that you would be out of the C.E.O. office by tomorrow morning.

Tracy: Well, I'll just deny everything. And while I'm at it, I will tell the press you showed up here fresh from prison, making threats.

Nikolas: I haven't threatened you -- not yet.

Tracy: Oh, I'm fully confident that your true colors will surface eventually. Because underneath that polished exterior, you are no better than your psycho grandmother.

Emily: You apologize to my husband immediately.

Tracy: Did you know that your husband's gene pool is shark-infested? In fact, if the two of you have children, they'll probably push you off a cliff.

Emily: You nasty, overbearing shrew!

Tracy: Oh, gee -- I thought you were supposed to be the new family peacemaker. What do you think my mother would say about you threatening me with a vase?

Emily: She'd say you got what you deserved.

 [Music plays]

Dillon: I'm going to miss you so much -- like this. Especially -- ooh -- especially this little -- what is that? -- That little spot right --

Georgie: I'm going to miss you, too, because --

Dillon: See that spot?

Georgie: Because nobody else knows where that spot is.

Dillon: Really?

Georgie: Mm-hmm.

Dillon: Because Joey Sinclair doesn't know where that spot is?

Georgie: Oh, no. No, he wishes.

Dillon: No? Because he's going to be all over you if I leave you now, right

Georgie: Ok.

Dillon: He's going to be all over you.

Georgie: I will send you pictures of me rejecting him.

Dillon: Really? Because I'm going to send you some pictures, too. You know what I'm going to send you?

Georgie: What?

Dillon: Me missing you on campus, and then me missing you under the "Hollywood" sign, and then me missing you at a bunch of other places, and before you know it, we are going to be back together again.

Georgie: Hmm. I like it. Oh --

[Music stops]

Georgie: Oh --

Luke: Sorry. I need your help.

Dillon: Never again.

Carly: We are not telling the world that Michael killed A.J.

Jason: I'm not talking about telling the whole world -- it'd be a closed hearing. It made sense to cover up the truth when Michael didn't remember. Now it could make things worse.

Carly: Ok, when Michael leaves the country, he's going to put all this behind him.

Jason: Oh, he is? He knows that Sonny's in prison because of him. How's he supposed to live with that?

Carly: But Sonny's going to be exonerated when I send the letter. Come on, Jason. Whose instincts are you going to trust, mine or Reese Marshall’s?

Sam: Hey, buddy. Do you mind if I sit down? Look, I don't know if I ever told you this before, but I am really, really proud of you.

Michael: For what?

Sam: Well, the way you care about other people -- that's pretty cool. And the loyalty you show to your friends and family. Those, Michael, are really wonderful qualities, and that is what makes you such a very, very special person.

Michael: Thank you.

Sam: That's why I wanted to ask you for your help.

Michael: Ok.

Sam: Look, your dad thinks the safest thing for you is to get out of town as fast as you can. But if you've got any better ideas, you know, I'd like to hear it.

Jason: Are you trying to come up with a solution, or you just want Reese to be wrong?

Carly: What I want is to do what's best for my child. What Reese thinks or wants real doesn't register on me.

Jason: Oh, ok. Then let's get back to thinking about what's best for Michael.

Carly: Aren't you the one who said how awful it would be if the truth came out, how it would define Michael’s life?

Jason: Yeah, yes. That was before Michael remembered what he did.

Carly: Ok, Sonny and I have decided that Michael’s going to go out of the country. Whether you like it or not --

Jason: Yeah?

Carly: You have to respect our decision.

Jason: And I do, but I'm just saying there could be another way.

Carly: What if Sam really is pregnant? How would you like it if Sonny and I told you what to do with your child? Knowing Sam though, you could probably use the help. Michael. Hi, honey.

Michael: Sam and I talked it over. I'll go.

Sonny: You had Michael subpoenaed; you were willing to force a 9-year-old little boy to testify against his own mother.

Alexis: I heard Michael say he witnessed a crime.

Sonny: You got Ric to issue the subpoena because you knew that I would confess to the crime to keep Michael off the stand.

Alexis: You know what? If you made a false confession --

Sonny: Michael saved Kristina’s life, and you turn around and you threaten him. Michael was kidnapped, terrorized. At one point he didn't know what was a dream, what was real, and instead of having compassion for a child, your daughter's brother, you turn around and you use his pain. Well, I'll tell you what -- somehow or another, Kristina’s going to live with me.

Alexis: You, my friend, are in no position to make threats to me.

[Door opens]

Alexis: You just confessed to murder.

Ric: There's been a new development. Sonny's not going to prison.

Dillon: I'm serious, Luke, I mean it. Like, no crimes, no schemes, no capers, I'm done. I'm a law-abiding citizen now.

Luke: Oh, please. Talk some sense into him, will you? Oh, I see. Well, if that's the way you feel about it, I'll just give you the bare bones. I'm trying to keep your mother from doing something rotten.

Dillon: How rotten?

Georgie: Dillon.

Dillon: No -- yeah, don't -- I don't want to know. Don't tell me.

Luke: As you know, I just got Nikolas sprung from prison. But unfortunately, the poor guy came back to a bank account that's missing 15 million bucks.

Dillon: Are you telling me my mother stole $15 million from Nikolas?

Luke: No. No, no, no, no. But the details are kind of complicated, so I won't go into them. The point is I'm just trying to put that money where it belongs.

Dillon: Uh-huh. And where do I fit in?

Luke: I want you to help me seduce your mother.

Tracy: Technically, that would be construed as assault.

Emily: Oh, well, look at it this way, Tracy -- I could've broken the vase over your head.

Nikolas: Not too late.

Tracy: You will never see a dime of that money.

Nikolas: Try not to slip on your way up there.

Emily: Oh --

Nikolas: Wow.

Emily: I'm sorry, Nikolas, but I couldn't stand her talking to you like that.

Nikolas: Don't apologize to me. I loved every minute of that.

Emily: Yeah, but now she's not going to give you your money back.

Nikolas: She never was. Still, it was worth it to see you dump that water on her.

Emily: She looked pretty ridiculous, didn't she?

Nikolas: Yeah, well, she got what she deserved. I think even Lila would've approved of that.

Carly: You sure you took everything you need? Yeah? I'm not exactly sure when we're coming back.

Jason: I'm the only one that Sonny trusts to take Carly and the kids out of the country, but I'm coming back in a day or two.

Sam: Ok, though that won't be soon enough. I took the pregnancy test.

Jason: And?

Sam: And -- I don't know. I --

Jason: What?

Sam: The box said it would be blue if I were pregnant and remain clear if I wasn't, and it kind of turned, like, this fuchsia-pink color, and I haven't had time to go get a new one, so I honestly -- I don't know yet.

Mac: Carly, I'm here to serve you with a subpoena.

Carly: For what?

Mac: Sonny is being tried for A.J.’s murder. You're being called as a witness.

Carly: Jason --

Jason: Ok, no, I'll find out what's going on.

Mac: I'll also need your passport to make sure you don't leave the country.

Michael: They can't have a trial. Dad didn't do anything.

Carly: No, that's right sweetheart, he didn't, and now we're going to have a chance to prove it.

Ric: The judge threw out Sonny's guilty plea. She's bound him over for trial. We should be able to move through it pretty quickly.

Reese: I assume Alexis heard the news.

Sonny: Was the trial your idea?

Reese: It gives us a win-win situation, Sonny. Michael can't be called to testify because he's not a witness against you, and you get to tell your story to a jury and explain why you confessed to a crime you didn't commit.

Sonny: So if this works out, then Michael’s protected and I stay out of prison.

Reese: And I get your eternal gratitude.

Sonny: At least.

Alexis: You're giving Sonny a way out?

Ric: The judge thought the confession was suspicious. She wants him tried.

Alexis: And you agreed?

Ric: I have my doubts about the confession, as well.

Alexis: So you've waited this long to put your brother behind bars, and you're waiting for this opportunity to throw the case?

Ric: Alexis, maybe you should go home.

Alexis: You know what I think? I think that once this baby is born and you are actually a parent yourself, you will finally understand what a parent will go through to protect their child.

Ric: I know that you love Kristina and you want to protect her, but you don't know everything.

Alexis: You're right, I do love my daughter, and I intend to protect her. But you need to make a choice. You either choose to be a hero to your brother or you choose to take care of your family, because you can't do both. If you throw this case, Ric, I'm filing for divorce.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Jason: Carly is going to have to testify.

Courtney: I've been called to testify.

Jax: Another excuse not to marry me.

Alexis: Good morning.

Ric: You obviously need something.

Alexis: I want you to choose your family because we love you and we need you.

Carly: Spare me the pep talk. You arranged for this trial, didn't you?
