Alice: I'm sorry, Dr. Quartermaine, but the living room is in use right now.

Alan: What do you mean, "in use"?

Alice: Uh -- why don't I serve brunch in the dining room?

Edward: Because we like to eat in the living room, as we always do.

Alice: Well, change is good.

Edward: Since when? And what are you hiding?

Alice: Well, there's a complication.

Edward: Oh, for crying out loud.

Tracy: Oh, you know what? It's a good idea. What a change of pace --

Luke: Will you people pipe down? I'm trying to sleep in, and I'm sleeping in every morning until spanky buns agrees to the terms of our divorce!

 [Knock on door]

Alexis: I'm here about the divorce.

Jason: Ok, I'm going to drop by the hospital, and then I'll be at the warehouse if you need me, ok?

Sam: Whoa, whoa, whoa -- hold on, hold on, hold on. Let me -- why don't I ride to the hospital with you?

Jason: Uh -- are you ok?

Sam: Yeah. Yeah, I'm ok. I feel great, I'm fine.

Jason: Ok.

Sam: I just -- you know, I want to check in with Dr. Meadows and confirm that I'm completely recovered to get pregnant again.

Courtney: You know, Mr. Jasper Jacks, in eight days, we will be newlyweds.

Jax: You're absolutely sure this time? You don't have any excuses or anything?

Courtney: I love you, Jax, and on Friday, June 3, I will officially become your wife.

Jax: Or we could -- we could just elope.

Courtney: Oh, what, and miss the chance of showing off my truly spectacular dress? Uh-uh.

Jax: Well, it's nice to see you have your priorities straight.

[Courtney laughs]

Courtney: You are my priority, now --

Jax: Really?

Courtney: And forever.

Jax: Hmm.

Rachel: They look really happy.

Carly: For now.

Rachel: You really think this marriage won't last?

Carly: It would crash and burn in under a year.

Rachel: It would? Well, it definitely looks like the wedding's on.

Carly: Trust me, with your help, it'll never happen.

Rachel: Look, are you just trying to control Courtney’s life because you don't know how to control your own?

Carly: Courtney's my best friend. I'm doing her a favor.

Rachel: Well, do you think she's going to see it that way?

Carly: The romantic relationships of the people I love are a complete mess.  They need to be straightened out, and I'm the only one who can do it.

Edward: Evict this eyesore from the premises before he ruins another meal.

Luke: Thank you, sunshine. Your melon is delicious.

Alice: Oh, I'm so glad you're enjoying it, Mr. Spencer.

Edward: Out. Now.

Luke: Do you think I enjoy sleeping on the sofa

Monica: Then don’t.

Luke: Snookums kicked me out of bed, and all I did was try to enjoy my connubial rights.

Alan: Please, not before I've eaten.

Edward: You know, I really don't care what you have to pay him to get him out of our house. Would you just do it?

Monica: Ah-ah, Edward, it is my house, remember?

Alan: I gave it to you -- much to my everlasting regret.

Monica: And as soon as you are well enough, you're going to be out of it. And don't think for one second it's going to be in the divorce settlement.

Edward: Well, here's an idea -- why don't you and Alan and Tracy and her unfortunate husband get on a plane and fly down to the Dominican Republic and get a quickie divorce? That way I can finish my brunch in peace.

Alan: Is it really necessary for you to trivialize our marital problems?

Edward: After 10 years of disasters? You want me to take it seriously?

Tracy: Why don't you just sign the papers and be done with it?

Alan: Look who's talking.

Edward: Get us out of this mess, Tracy, or --

Tracy: Or what? You'll get rid of me as C.E.O. of E.L.Q.?

Edward: Well, now that you mention it --

Skye: The company's on the verge of collapse. Fortunately, we know a businessman, a savvy one, who will be taking over and bringing the company back from the brink.

Monica: Excuse me? You're not thinking of putting the company in the hands of Lorenzo Alcazar, are you?

Tracy: Uh-huh. And then we can change the name from E.L.Q. to Gangsters, Inc.

Dillon: Ok.

Skye: Whoa, hold it right there, Dillon. All right. Could we declare a ceasefire long enough in here to wish Dillon a happy birthday?

Tracy: Wow. Is it that time again already? Gee, I'd completely forgotten.

Dillon: Oh. Well, I wouldn't expect this year to be any different.

Tracy: Don't expect an apology from me after you saddled me with the hubby from hell.

Monica: You can't even cough up one single present, Tracy?

Tracy: Oh, he'll get a check -- a little one.

Dillon: I don't want a check. You know what I really want? A party.

Tracy: Really?

Dillon: Yeah.

Tracy: What kind of party?

Dillon: Well, nothing huge. Just maybe a couple of friends in the boathouse.

Edward: Absolutely not.

Tracy: Not a chance.

Monica: No way.

Mac: No, Georgie, you're not going to a party at the Quartermaine boathouse.

Georgie: Why not?

Mac: Because the last teenage gathering there ended with a girl in a body bag.

Georgie: Dad, that was a horrible tragedy that had nothing to do with Dillon.

Mac: Ok, well, what about the little private party Dillon arranged for the two of you on the Haunted Star -- when I found you lying on a gambling table next to that hormone-driven Bogart wannabe?

Georgie: It's his birthday, dad. He really wants me there.

Mac: Oh, I'll bet he does.

Georgie: Dad, it's going to be at the Quartermaine house, full of sane, law-abiding adults.

Felicia: The Quartermaines sane? Oh, that's a stretch.

Lucky: Hey, guys. Maxie? You back for the summer?

Maxie: Yeah, I got back yesterday.

Lucky: Prep school agrees with you. You look great.

Maxie: Thanks.

Lucky: Hey, see you guys later. Nik, what's happening? You ok?

Nikolas: I finally understand what Emily’s been trying to tell me. Doesn't matter how much we love each other, Lucky. There's just no coming back from what Connor Bishop did to her.

Elizabeth: Hey.

Emily: Hey.

Elizabeth: So, how'd it go last night?

Emily: I didn't see him.

Elizabeth: What? When I left the Metro Court, you were on your way to his room. What happened?

Emily: Yeah, well, I went to his floor, and then I kind of got distracted by something on the way, and I lost my momentum.

Elizabeth: Oh. What you mean is you lost your nerve.

Emily: Elizabeth, maybe it's best to let Nikolas sit with this for a while, you know, absorb what happened, put it into perspective.

Elizabeth: "Perspective"? What perspective? Em, Nikolas saw you disturbed and crying on the floor of a psychiatrist's office. The more he dwells on it; the -- the worse he's going to feel.

Emily: I don't -- I just don't want to push.

Elizabeth: Well, if you don't start pushing, you might lose him for good.

Jason: I have a meeting scheduled with a psychiatrist just to, you know, talk about therapy for Michael.

Sam: Therapy? Sonny and Carly haven't done that yet?

Jason: They don't think he needs it. And you know what? I'm not a big fan of it at all, but we're talking about a kid. He's been having nightmares, he's been feeling guilty, he's been asking me so many questions, and I can't wait for Sonny and Carly to get used to the idea because they never will. Michael needs help now.

Sam: Yet another reason you are going to be a great father.

Jason: No, I'm just -- I'm just trying to do what's best for Michael.

Sam: Exactly.

Carly: Are you clear on what to do?

Rachel: I think there's one small detail you forgot -- my credibility with Jax is extremely low. If I try to tell him about Courtney’s supposed betrayal, he is not going to believe a word that comes out of my mouth.

Carly: Just leave it to me, I got it covered.

Rachel: I think that you've underestimated how much Jax loves Courtney.

Carly: Actually, that's what I'm counting on. All you need to do is the thing that you've wanted to do since the moment you laid eyes on Jax. I'll handle the rest.

Courtney: You will?

Jax: Mm-hmm.

Carly: Hi!

Courtney: Hey, Carly.

Jax: Hi.

Carly: Well, you guys look happy. I guess that means the wedding's on.

Jax: Yeah, we're getting married next Friday.

Carly: Well, congratulations.

Jax: Thanks.

Carly: And your timing's perfect because I arranged a very special treat for the bride.

Alexis: I've asked Dara to handle the separation agreement and the divorce, if that's ok with you.

Ric: Fine. Yeah, she's -- she's an excellent family attorney.

Alexis: Good. All right, so I'll make an appointment next week, then.

Ric: Yeah, fine. Just you let me know when and where, and I'll -- I'll be there.

Alexis: It should pretty straightforward. I mean, we don't really have any issues. The only issue would be custody, and I'm certain that we'll be agreeable about that.

Ric: Yeah, I'm sure we will.

Alexis: Ok. That's it. I was hoping that you would -- um -- decide you didn't want to go through with this, and that maybe you thought what we had was valuable and -- and I -- did any of that actually cross your mind, or is this really it?

Ric: Alexis, I love you. I think I always will.

Alexis: And I love you, too.

Ric: It would be so easy for me right now to just take you in my arms and agree that we'll try again.

Alexis: You know what? You and I don't always choose the easy thing -- in fact, we never do -- so maybe this would be a good time to do it. We tend to overthink things and intellectualize and rationalize when, in fact, in my heart you're it for me.

Ric: What we have is -- is painful to give up. I'll -- I'll grant you that. It's -- but if we don't, it'll eventually turn into bitterness, you know? Our problems are insurmountable. I -- I don't want to lose you, but I --

Alexis: Ok. No, that's ok.

Ric: Alexis, don't -- please --

Alexis: I get it.

Ric: I'm just trying --

Alexis: I get it. I think we have irreconcilable differences.

Ric: I'm not trying to minimize this --

Alexis: So, thanks for agreeing for the appointment, and I'm going to have Dara call you.

Luke: Happy birthday, stepson of mine. I'm truly sorry this family of yours is such an uptight group of party poopers.

Dillon: Oh, you too, huh?

Luke: Guess what, Fellini -- I think you should forget the boathouse. I'm going to throw you a private party on the Haunted Star.

Dillon: Are you serious?

Luke: Sure, I'm serious. Why not?

Tracy: An unsupervised free-for-all on a floating casino?

Luke: Sounds like fun, huh?

Tracy: No, it sounds like a recipe for disaster. I won't allow it.

Luke: As the boy's stepfather, I insist on it.

Dillon: Well, thank you, stepfather. Thank you so much. And -- um -- I guess I'll see you guys later. I have a party to plan.

Edward: Just so you know, Spencer, the family will not be responsible for any structural damage to the boat, nor any injury to the guests.

Luke: Oh, unstuff the shirt, pop. It's just a party.

Alan: And the Hindenburg was just a blimp.

Tracy: You are doing this to force me into paying you the $15 million to get rid of you, and it won't work!

Monica: Of course it won't work. Tracy's much more interested in holding on to her money than parenting a child.

Luke: Why are you all so uptight about a birthday party?

Alan: Because it's going to turn into a teenage orgy.

Luke: Fine. If that's what's got your collective knickers in a twist, I will personally chaperone the party.

Edward: Oh, you just made our day.

Skye: Oh, goody.

Alan: Oh, my God --

Skye: We all feel so much better now.

Georgie: This is going to be great. Dillon is having a party --

Maxie: On Luke’s boat, the Haunted Star, with no chaperones. I heard.

Georgie: It's going to be awesome.

Maxie: It's also going to be totally different from the party you just described to mom and Mac.

Georgie: What they don't know won't hurt them.

Maxie: Georgie, they always find out. It's like radar or something.

Georgie: You're not going to tell them, are you?

Maxie: No. But maybe you should.

Georgie: Right. "Mom, Mac, hi. You know that party I just begged you to let me go to? Well, there's been some changes. Um -- there's not going to be any chaperones, and we're going to have it on Luke’s boat with a bar." No.

Maxie: So, you miss one night with Dillon.

Georgie: Maxie, Dillon is going to film school. The last thing I need to be doing right now is being some -- some rule-spouting dweeb who can't even make it to his birthday party.

Maxie: It's not dweebish to have parents who care about you.

Georgie: You sound just like mom.

Maxie: Look, if you want Mac to calm down about Dillon, you have to prove to him that you're responsible.

Georgie: Fine. So Dillon will go off to film school remembering his boring, responsible --

Maxie: If Dillon loves you, it's for who you are, not who you wish you could be. And, trust me, it's just not a good idea to pretend to be wilder than you really are just to impress some guy.

Georgie: So what is this, the new, improved, more mature Maxie?

Maxie: It's kind of like we switched roles, huh?

Georgie: It's going to take some getting used to.

Nikolas: I've never seen Emily like that before -- full of hate, pain -- and all directed at me.

Lucky: No, not you, it's Connor, her rapist. You guys were playing role-play in a psychiatrist's office, all right? And Emily was finally able to connect and let it out. I'm sure it helped her.

Nikolas: Emily sees me, and sees the man who raped her. She will never get over that.

Lucky: You don't know that, Nikolas.

Nikolas: She'll try her hardest, Lucky. You know. But when the trying doesn't work, she'll fake it. She'll stuff her feelings down and pretend to be happy when I know she's screaming inside, and, Lucky, when I touch her, she'll flinch. Now, that's not the kind of life I want for my wife.

Elizabeth: You can't wait for Nikolas to reach out when he's convinced himself he's hurting you.

Jason: Hey.

Sam: Hey. Hi. Is Dr. Meadows ready to see me?

Elizabeth: Yeah, she is. Let me grab your file, and come with me to the exam room.

Sam: Ok. Bye.

Jason: How you doing?

Emily: Ok.

Jason: Yeah?

Emily: Yeah. Uh -- how about Michael? Is he getting better?

Jason: I mean, you know, the kid's been through hell, and I don't think he can get past it on his own, so that's actually why I'm here. I'm going to meet with Dr. Winters about treatment for Michael.

Emily: Shouldn't Sonny and Carly be doing that?

Jason: They don't think he needs a psychiatrist.

Carly: Your afternoon at the Metro Court Spa will include an herbal wrap, a cucumber/mango facial, a shiatsu massage, and last but not least, a French manicure and pedicure.

Courtney: And when am I doing all this?

Carly: Today! Your first appointment's in 45 minutes.

Jax: Well, that sounds like an offer you can't refuse.

Courtney: I don't know what to say.

Carly: Yeah, you say "Yes, Carly," and "Thank you very much, I really need a pedicure."

Jax: That would be my cue. You know what? I'll see you in a couple of hours, ok?

Courtney: Ok.

Jax: Bye.

Courtney: Bye.

Carly: Thanks for lending me your fiancée.

Courtney: Ok, Carly, you didn't find out that the wedding was back on until 10 minutes ago. So what's with the spa treatments? What are you trying to pull?

Jason: I just know he's been feeling guilty, he's been having nightmares, you know; asking about what happened to A.J.

Louise: Hmm. From what I understand, Michael was very traumatized.

Jason: That's right, yeah.

Louise: Therapy's essential to his recovery. And whether you bring him to me or somebody else, you need to get that child help.

Jason: Ok. Thank you for your time.

Louise: All right.

Emily: Hey. I don't understand. You know, Sonny and Carly love Michael. Why won't they get him help with his emotional problems?

Jason: Well, look, they -- they want Michael to be ok. They just think taking him to a shrink is going to force him to relive what happened to A.J.

Emily: Ok. So as usual, you're the only one thinking about what Michael really needs. I mean, where are his parents, anyway? I mean, are they getting along this week, or are they at each other's throats?

Jason: Oh -- you know, Carly’s not too happy about Sonny and Agent Marshall.

Emily: Because they're friends, or --

Jason: Well, Carly’s sure that they're headed for a relationship, and I think for once that she's right.

Emily: So you're telling me that -- that Sonny's getting involved with Agent Marshall?

Alexis: Hi, Patty. Hey! Nikolas, how are you?

Nikolas: You're welcome to join me, but I'm not very good company right now.

Alexis: What's wrong? Did something happen to Emily?

Nikolas: You might say that. Our marriage is over.

Alexis: What? After everything you've been through?

Nikolas: Look, I used to believe that -- that we could get through anything. I used to believe that nothing could separate me from Emily. I used -- I used to believe --

Alexis: Can you tell me what happened?

Nikolas: I finally learned what Emily’s known for a while. And that's that some problems are just too difficult to overcome.

Alexis: Do you really believe that?

Nikolas: Emily and I used to have something precious, Alexis, something that only comes along once in a lifetime, maybe. But things just went wrong. Circumstances came between us. And it's -- it's no one's fault. It's not mine, it's not hers, but it still can't be fixed.

Alexis: Is there anything I can do to help?

Nikolas: You can handle our divorce.

Carly: Afternoon at the spa didn't start out as a prewedding treat.

Courtney: Really? And what was it supposed to be?

Carly: Well -- I mean, if you and Jax hadn't patched up your differences, it was going to be a consolation gift. But now that you guys are getting married, it'll be, you know, a kind of bridal shower without the guests.

Courtney: Mm-hmm. Well, I'm sure you would prefer it to be a consolation gift.

Carly: Jax is about the last person I would have picked out for you. And I'm sure he feels the same way about your family and best friend.

Courtney: Well, Jax has mixed feelings, to put it mildly.

Carly: I'm sorry if I -- if I've come down hard on Jax. I just -- I just want everything to work out for you.

Courtney: I know you do.

Carly: The truth is I'm just not the kind of person who gets close to a lot of women, and -- and you're the first real friend I've had since I was a teenager. You're just incredibly important to me, and I would just do anything -- anything to make sure that you got the happiness that you deserved.

Courtney: Which is where my spa day comes in.

Carly: Exactly. So you ready to check into your room?

Courtney: You checked me into a room, too?

Carly: Mm-hmm. A place to change and rest in between treatments.

Courtney: Wow. You really went all out.

Carly: For you, I always will.

Emily: Are you worried about Sonny dating a fed?

Jason: Hmm. I don't think it's a good idea, you know.

Emily: Does he know --

Sam: Hey.

Jason: Hey.

Sam: Hi. Sorry to interrupt. I just finished with Dr. Meadows, and I'm going to head home.

Jason: Ok, well, I'll drive you.

Sam: Ok, well, bye.

Jason: Ok, I'll talk to you tomorrow.

Emily: Ok. Take care.

Ric: Emily. I need to know if you told Jason about what you saw last night.

Emily: No, I -- I didn’t. Is it supposed to be a secret?

Ric: Reese and I are unattached. She's a single woman, and Alexis and I are -- we split up, ok? Still, people's feelings could get hurt if you were to publicize what you had seen.

Emily: "Publicize"? I'm not a gossip, Ric.

Ric: Yeah, look, Emily, I need for you to not tell anybody, especially Jason, about what you saw last night.

Emily: Ok, because of Sonny or Alexis?

Ric: It could jeopardize my position regarding custody of our unborn child, all right? And aside from that, I still care about Alexis. I just don't want to see her get hurt by this whole situation.

Emily: So you're still hoping that your marriage is going to work out.

Alexis: Nikolas, I am so sorry that you're considering divorce.

Nikolas: Look, it's the last thing I want, but I really don't see any other option at this point.

Alexis: And I'm the last person on this planet to be giving you any marriage advice, considering I escaped one wedding in a semi truck and I married the other two for practical reasons.

Nikolas: You didn't just marry Ric for practical reasons, did you?

Alexis: Oh, it started out that way, kind of. I didn't know that I was going to fall in love with him in the process.

Nikolas: And yet, you're still getting a divorce.

Alexis: It's kind of hard to explain, but the practical reasons for getting married somehow turned into practical reasons for getting divorced.

Nikolas: Ok. Is there anything I can do?

Alexis: Yes. I want you to take a good, long look at this. I want you to consider that Emily is the love of your life, and you may never find another woman like this again. If you really, really want me to, I will help you with the divorce, provided that you take a long time to think about what you're doing first.

Nikolas: Ok.

Alexis: And then there's one other thing.

Nikolas: What's that?

Alexis: I want you to remind me of this on a daily basis -- never to fall in love again. No more doomed romances.

Nikolas: Ok.

[Alexis applauds]

Skye: Well, that was certainly generous of you to offer the Haunted Star for Dillon’s birthday party.

Luke: You know me. Always thinking of others.

Skye: So tell me -- was that offer really prompted by generosity?

Luke: Dillon's a good kid. He deserves a party. He's also a damn good assistant.

Skye: You mean, accomplice.

Luke: Whatever. The point is he survived another year of familial harassment from this crowd. I think that deserves a celebration.

Skye: Yeah, well, you know, chaperoning means more than just shutting yourself up into the casino office with a bottle of scotch, Luke.

Luke: It does?

Skye: Come on, you know that you've got to be there -- you know that perfectly well -- in person.

Luke: Supervising teens. Yikes. I may need a co-chaperone to help fulfill my duties.

Skye: Is that an invitation?

Luke: Are you inclined?

Skye: All right. But I'm only doing it because Dillon will run wild if left to your own devices.

Luke: Great. Wonderful. Maybe once the teens are involved in their squeaky-clean, innocent, wholesome party games, you and I could steal a dance. Or even a walk on the deck under the moonlight.

Skye: Luke, come on, chaperoning is serious business. But I -- I don't think I'll rule out the possibility of a little fun on the side.

Lorenzo: Oh, perfect timing.

Luke: Whatever you're selling, we ain't buying.

Lorenzo: Actually, I'm here to see your wife. I thought I'd give her the chance to resign as C.E.O.

Tracy: Why would I do that?

Lorenzo: To spare yourself the humiliation of being voted out in next week's E.L.Q. board meeting.

Tracy: Oh, I think you overestimate your leverage, sir.

Lorenzo: No, I don’t. E.L.Q. has suffered tremendously under your tenure. The company's a mess.

Luke: Them's fighting words, Mr. Alcazar. If you are looking for a shootout in the boardroom, my little filly and I will oblige.

Lorenzo: I'm E.L.Q.'s principal shareholder now. That puts your little filly at a distinct disadvantage.

Tracy: Don't count your chickens before they're hatched. I have a great deal of support.

Luke: She certainly does. I stand with Mrs. Spencer till the end of time.

 [Music plays]

Georgie: Hey.

Brook Lynn: Hey.

Georgie: Did you and Diego make up?

Brook Lynn: No, I didn't get the chance.

Georgie: I'm sorry. Did -- what, you haven't seen him?

Brook Lynn: Oh, I saw him -- outside of Kelly’s trying his new slick look on this new slick blond. Your sister, Maxie.

Maxie: Wait, I -- I didn't know you were a friend of Dillon’s.

Diego: Well, there's a lot of things about me you don't know.

Maxie: What happened to Mr. Honesty?

Diego: Well, just because I'm telling the truth, doesn't mean I have to tell you everything. Don't you want to have, like, a little mystery to solve?

Maxie: How long is this mystery-solving going to take?

Diego: Not long. I'm not all that deep.

Maxie: At least you're honest.

Georgie: Excuse me. Hi. You know what, Maxie? This is what I hate about you. You haven't been here five minutes and you're already flirting with somebody else's boyfriend.

Elizabeth: Hey.

Lucky: Hey!

Elizabeth: Hey, Cam, say hi to Lucky.

Lucky: Oh, Cam. Oh, my goodness. So are you ready for a picnic at the beach?

Elizabeth: Oh, yeah, I've got pails and rakes and shovels. We got it all.

Lucky: Well, good, we can build big sand castles.

Elizabeth: I had this crazy idea for about a second, and then reality set in.

Lucky: What was it?

Elizabeth: Well, I thought maybe I could invite Emily, and then you could bring Nikolas along, not knowing that Emily was going to be there.

Lucky: Yeah. Not too heavy-handed.

Elizabeth: Yeah, I know. It's so blatantly obvious that we'd throw them together, and I'm sure it would do more harm than good, right?

Lucky: Listen, they have to work this out for themselves.

Elizabeth: Would you do me a favor? Will you promise me that no matter what happens to us, whether we stay together forever or we go our separate ways, that we'll always be honest with each other?

Lucky: You know what? I ruined our relationship years ago because I was too afraid to tell you the truth. And I'm not about to do it again.

Elizabeth: I remember thinking that I'd lost you forever. I'm really glad I was wrong.

Lucky: I've always known that loving you was the best thing that's ever happened to me. And now we got a second chance.

Emily: Nikolas. I was going to find you as soon as I got off work.

Nikolas: I'm sorry that I've been avoiding your calls.

Emily: Did you listen to my messages?

Nikolas: Yes. You've been trying to explain it all along. And -- and it's finally sunk in for me. No matter how much we love each other, Emily, I will always remind you of Connor Bishop and what he did to you. So I've decided that -- that I'm going to give you your freedom. I'm filing for divorce.

Carly: Ta-da! Your luxury dressing room.

Courtney: Oh, wow. Carly, it's beautiful. Look at this.

Carly: It is, isn't it?

Courtney: Oh -- look, I know that you're not exactly thrilled about the prospect of me marrying Jax.

Carly: I'm working on it.

Courtney: I know, and -- and you're making an effort. I appreciate it.

Carly: Courtney, I just want you to have the love and happiness you deserve. All right, you know what? I'll be right back with your spa schedule.

Courtney: Ok.

Luke: Don't worry about a thing, Edward. Tracy and I will run E.L.Q. husband and wife.

Tracy: Over your dead body.

Luke: Huh! Don't you love her spunk?

Tracy: I am not letting you within 100 miles of E.L.Q.

Luke: I'm a member of this family, too. That means I'm part of the family business.

Monica: Not in this life.

Alan: You two would drive what's left of this company into bankruptcy. It's too absurd to even contemplate.

Edward: What, do you think it's better to turn E.L.Q. over to some underworld kingpin?

Lorenzo: My investment in E.L.Q. is entirely legitimate.

Edward: Hmm.

Alan: You mean, the money's been freshly laundered.

Lorenzo: If Spencer manages E.L.Q. the way he does the Haunted Star, you won't have a business left to fight over.

Luke: You're in over your head, Lorenzo.

Lorenzo: No, I'm not. I know how to run a corporation.

Luke: And I know this snarling rabid pack of blue bloods.

Edward: You think insulting us -- it'll get you votes on the board?

Luke: I don't care if you've dealt with smugglers and thieves and contortionists --

Tracy: Extortionists.

Luke: Tortionists all over this -- this world. They can't compare to this backstabbing bunch.

Alan: That's it. Tracy, get him out of here.

Tracy: I'm trying!

[Doorbell rings]

Edward: Yeah, jeopardizing the company is what you're doing.

Tracy: Daddy, I'm trying to save the company, but do I ever hear a word of thanks?

Luke: They are so ungrateful, aren't they?

Tracy: Would you just shut up!

Lorenzo: All this will be moot by the end of next week.

Alan: Oh, dream on.

Felicia: Georgie left Dillon’s birthday present behind, so I though I'd drop it off.

Mac: Where's the party? Are the kids upstairs?

Georgie: You know, so much for all of this maturity you supposedly learned at prep school!

Maxie: What are you talking about?

Georgie: Diego is Brook Lynn’s boyfriend.

Maxie: He is?

Georgie: Don't even act like you don't know, Maxie!

Maxie: No, no, now could I?

Georgie: Maxie! Hello! I wrote you, like, 5,000 emails while you were away!

Maxie: No, Georgie, you wrote me and told me Brook had a boyfriend who was some foster kid. And Diego came up to me outside of Kelly’s and he offered me a ride in his Porsche.

Georgie: Oh, great, Maxie, way to go. So, what, now you hook up with guys who have nice cars?

Maxie: No, I -- I wouldn't do --

Georgie: Maxie? Maxie?

Emily: I tried to call you, Nikolas. I wanted you to know that I'm -- I'm making progress. Now yeah, it was painful, you know, thinking of you as Connor for even a minute but it allowed me to release a lot of the anger that I've been carrying, Nikolas. It really helped.

Nikolas: Good. Good. I'm glad for you. But it doesn't change my mind.

Emily: So you're saying that you want to divorce me?

Nikolas: No. I'm saying I don't want to be the man who hurts you every time you look at me. I'll help you any way that I can, Emily. If you need me to be Connor while you work your way through this, I'm there anytime. But once you've healed, I will still have the face of the man who raped you. And I honestly don't know how we can get past that.

Emily: Nikolas, I was so stupid to ever suggest ending our marriage, ok? And the only thing that I can say in my own defense is that I was afraid. Nikolas, I was terrified that I was trapped in rage, and I was terrified that I was going to turn it on you. And I know now that I can get back to myself, to the woman you married as long as I know that you're still my husband. I'm just asking you to please be patient with me, Nikolas. Don't give up on us.

Nikolas: Emily, I don't want to. God knows I don't want to, but I just -- what chance do we have if every time you look at me, you see him, you know?

Emily: Nikolas, you look like Connor. Ok? It's a fact. I mean, there's nothing that we can do to get around that -- I mean, short of a complete facial reconstruction.

Nikolas: Come on.

Emily: But it doesn't matter, Nikolas. Because you're love shines through your eyes. And in time, that's all I'm going to see. Can you please wait for me?

Nikolas: As long as it takes. You know I never want to be without you.

Emily: Well, then stay with me.

Nikolas: Ok. Are you done here?

Emily: Do you have -- do you have something in mind?

Nikolas: A walk in the park maybe?

Emily: Yeah. I'd love that.

Nikolas: Ok.

John: What do you want first, the bad news or the worse news?

Sam: Why should I be worried, right? I mean, I know how I feel, and I feel great.

Jason: Well, what did Dr. Meadows say?

Sam: Dr. Meadows said that she wants to do more tests before giving me the official approval to get pregnant, but how ridiculous is that, Jason? We want to have a baby, not qualify for a home loan. I'm just saying, you know, getting pregnant shouldn't be about official approval or -- or tests or forms or -- it just -- it shouldn't be so complicated. I mean, just why can't having a baby be about you and I loving each other, and that's it?

Jax: Ooh!

Rachel: Oh, Jax --

Jax: I'm sorry.

Rachel: I am so surprised to see you. I thought you were out of town.

Jax: No, not until June 3. That's when Courtney and I are leaving on our long-anticipated honeymoon.

Rachel: A honeymoon? Oh. So the wedding's still on?

Jax: Yeah. Why wouldn't it be?

Rachel: I just -- I assumed you broke up.

Jax: No. Far from it. Courtney's indulging in a prebridal spa day as we speak.

Rachel: A spa day? Wow, so that's what she calls it.

Jax: If you have something to say to me, Rachel, then just go ahead and say it.

Carly: Ok, hurry up. Your herbal wrap starts in 15 minutes.

Courtney: God, you'd make a really great cruise director, you know that?

Carly: Oh, God, no way. I'd be way too rude to the people I didn't like.

Courtney: Oh, yeah, good point.

Carly: All right, come on.

Courtney: Why --

Carly: Hurry up and get changed and --

Courtney: Ok.

Carly: I'll see you in a little bit.

Courtney: Yes, ma'am.

[Phone rings]

Carly: Oh, God, Jase, I'm so glad you're there. I need your help. I'm in big trouble.

Jason: What happened?

Carly: Ok, no- I'll tell you when you get here. I'm not at home. I'm at the Metro Court hotel, room 614.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Georgie: We need some help! Maxie?

Dillon: What happened?

Georgie: She just fell.

John: You're no longer the D.A.

Rachel: Courtney is in a room with Jason.

Jax: My fiancée is having an affair?

Jason: Is this real?

Carly: Please, Jase.

Sonny: What's wrong?

Reese: There's something that you and I need to discuss.
