Maxie: You wanted to tell the D.A. your story -- at least that's what you said -- and now you want to run. That sounds guilty to me.

Jesse: I swear I never shot John Durant. I was set up.

Maxie: I know, a bad cop from the Port Charles police force.

Jesse: It's true. Look, this guy had to know that I was about to blow his deal wide open.

Maxie: You don't have any proof.

Jesse: If you have a hard time believing me, then you can bet Durant won't either, which is why I have to disappear.

Maxie: It's a bad idea.

Jesse: I appreciate your input. Just give me your car keys.

Maxie: What a coincidence -- I happen to have them right here. And if you want them, you're going to have to take them from me.

Dr. Thomas: So we've hit a crucial juncture in Michaelís therapy.

Sam: Yeah?

Dr. Thomas: I'm not quite sure how to handle it, which is why I need your help.

Sam: I'll do whatever I can.

Dr. Thomas: Ok. I think it's time to get Michaelís parents fully involved. Now, I'll speak to his mother, but I was hoping that you could convince his father to participate in the boy's sessions.

Sam: You want me to convince Sonny to go to therapy? Dream on.

Jason: I'm not saying that it was right for Carly to break in and knock Reese out.

Sonny: Carly could've killed Reese. Do you want me to just let that go, Jason?

Ric: Yeah, don't be surprised if Reese presses charges.

Jason: I didn't ask you, Ric. Carly's methods may be lousy, but you know her instincts are usually right, Sonny.

Sonny: She's lost her instincts. She's become jealous, self-destructive. I don't know, what else --

Jason: Carly knows that Reese is hiding something, and I bet Ric knows what it is.

Reese: Give me back the lock box and I won't tell Sonny that the so-called burglar was really you.

Carly: Well, it won't matter once I tell him what you've been hiding.

Reese: You opened it?

Carly: What do you think?

Reese: I think we have a lot to talk about.

Carly: How long did you think you could keep this a secret?

Reese: I forgot that privacy wasn't in your vocabulary, Carly.

Carly: Ok, after all your lies, don't even think of criticizing me, Reese.

Reese: Now who's lying?

Carly: Don't even try to slither away.

Reese: So if you opened it, why don't you tell me what's inside here then, Carly?

Lorenzo: I'd just like to say before my wife arrives to accept the directorship of the General Hospital --

Luke: I'd hate to interrupt here, but it's my understanding that board meetings, whether they be charitable or otherwise, are the purview of upstanding, respectable citizens -- or at least in your case, people who buy their way into respectability -- and since that's not a club that I care to join, I'll just move along.

Alan: We'll try to miss you.

Tracy: Excuse me. I need the support of my loving husband.

Luke: Since when?

Tracy: Since your niece took over my chair in the clubhouse.

Luke: Look, sugarplum, give her about five minutes, she's going to fold from lack of interest.

Tracy: Don't humor me.

Luke: All right, seriously, you're going to have that chair back in two months.

Lorenzo: Carly is committed to the good of the hospital and the surrounding community. We both are. And after having been prodded, I think I would like a seat on the hospital's Board of Directors.

Sam: I know you mean well, Dr. Thomas, but Sonny and therapy could possibly be the worst idea that you will ever have.

Dr. Thomas: Well, I know he's not a proponent --

Sam: No, he's opposed to it, from day one, actually. So getting Sonny to come in and show a teeny, tiny, little piece of his soul in front of you, his son, and possibly his slightly insane ex-wife? Pretty good idea that Sonny is going to take Michael and go home for good.

Dr. Thomas: Hmm. Ok, Mr. Corinthos loves his son, right?

Sam: Yeah, more than words, of course.

Dr. Thomas: But his reticence about therapy has rubbed off on Michael. However, if Michael sees his father willingly participate in this part of the healing process, then Michael might be more inclined to participate more fully.

Sam: Yeah, I understand that.

Dr. Thomas: Good. Then you can explain that to Sonny, whom I am sure would be more open to hearing it from you than from me.

Sam: All right, I mean, I will do what I can, but don't get your hopes up.

Jason: I'm not defending what Carly did. All I'm saying is she has a right to suspect Reese.

Ric: That's not suspicion, Jason, that's jealousy, all right? Carly knows that Reese is living in her former home; she's involved with her ex-husband. I think she wants --

Jason: You don't get to say a word against Carly after what you did to her!

Sonny: Let it go! Let's not bring up the past. There's no need for that.

Jason: That's great, Ric can defend Reese --

Sonny: One thing has nothing to do with the other.

Jason: All of a sudden, everything's forgiven now.

Sonny: Stop. You're as paranoid as Carly.

Reese: Little rusty on your lock-picking skills, Carly. All that trouble to break into my apartment?

Carly: Your apartment?

Reese: Tell yourself what you want; it was still breaking and entering. Knocking me unconscious? That's assault, not to mention theft. And you still couldn't manage to get the box open. You must be so frustrated.

Carly: I don't have to open the box to know that you're hiding something, and whatever is in there, I'm going to find out what it is. I am going to dog you to the end of this earth until I find out what it is that you're hiding, and then I'm going to tell Sonny what a liar you are.

Reese: Can I tell you you're pathetic?

Carly: No. When Sonny kicks you out on your two-faced, hypocritical butt, that will be pathetic and oh-so-satisfying.

Reese: That makes you feel all warm and cozy. But you'll create as much tension as you can between yourself and Sonny and you'll inflict as much pain as you can on Michael. Must make you feel so proud. You know what, Carly? Knock yourself out.

Carly: What's the catch?

Reese: No catch. Just take a good, long look at my past. Because I can handle whatever you throw at me, but you're the one who's going to pay in the end.  Need a little help there?

Carly: This is a trick, right? Where's the real key?

Reese: Sorry, Carly, you broke the lock.

Carly: Fine. I've already called a locksmith. I'll be able to get in the box.

Reese: Go to hell, Carly.

Carly: I won't give up.

Reese: What do you think somebody would keep in a box like this, huh? What would you say, what would you protect under lock and key?

Carly: Evidence? Something incriminating?

Reese: What's in this box are memories -- pictures, letters, history. All that's left of --

Carly: All that's left of what?

Reese: Of a life I left behind. My dead son. A lock of his hair, his first baby tooth, crayon drawings that he made for me, and this little green truck that he loved so much that he would sleep with it at night. Evidence is in this box, yeah, Carly, evidence that I can't let go of my dead son.

Carly: So why would you lock it?

Reese: Because it's the last bit of Jamie that I could keep safe. I couldn't keep him safe when he was alive and, yeah, it probably sounds obsessive. Probably does. But tell me, Carly, when you thought that you lost Michael, how far were you willing to go to protect his stuff?

Carly: You could've just told me.

Reese: I wanted to see the look on your face when you realized how wrong you were. I wanted to see if you're capable of regret. It's too bad the lock jammed because now we'll never know. This would be a good time to apologize. That's what I figured.

Sonny: I will tell Reese that it was Carly who attacked her and I'll assure that it won't happen again. But you know what, if Reese wants to press charges, then she's going to do it. I mean, you know what? I don't want her to, but who can blame her at this point?

Ric: Reese would never hurt you or Michael, so it's a good bet she'll let it drop, but Carly is going to have to behave. Reese doesn't deserve this.

Sonny: Ric, I'll take care of it.

Ric: You know, just for the record, Jason, I didn't go into law practice with Reese because she's Sonny's girlfriend. I did it because she's smart and she's talented. As far as earning my brother's trust, I think that's between him and me.

Sonny: Jason? You know how I feel about this. You are loyal almost to a fault. You have saved my life more than once but, you know, sometimes the downside to your kind of loyalty is you get blindsided to the truth. You're so loyal to Carly, so protective that you can't see that what she did was wrong. Now, as far as Reese -- so far she's proven, you know, she's good to me. Especially to Michael.

Jason: Reese lied to you more than once. Maybe that's what she does. All I'm saying is you owe it to yourself to find out.

Georgie: We weren't aiding and abetting anybody.

Dillon: Know what this is like? This is like "Midnight Express," where the guy gets sent to the Turkish prison, except that this isn't Turkey --

Ofc. Murphy: Let's go.

Dillon: And all the other stuff. You know what, no, this isn't like "Midnight Express" at all because we didn't actually do anything, so you don't need to --

John: I heard you offer to set up the meeting between me and the man who shot me, Jesse Beaudry.

Georgie: No, no, we said we'd try if he called.

Dillon: Yeah, and that's if we could get ahold of him, which we have no idea where he is.

John: Well, then how'd you expect to set up a meeting? Wishful thinking, perhaps?

Dillon: Uh, ok, Jesse knows Georgieís sister, Maxie. They met while she was in the hospital.

Georgie: My sister almost died from heart failure. You can ask my dad.

Dillon: Yeah, anyway, he promised to call her.

Georgie: You know, and we wanted to have something set up in case he called, if he called, when I don't really know.

John: So what you're telling me is you have no idea where Beaudry is hiding?

Georgie: No.

Dillon: No, not a clue.

John: And you'd be willing to sign an affidavit to that effect, knowing full well that signing a false statement is perjury, a felony? You can ask your dad.

Ofc. Murphy: And the prisons here in the states are so much nicer than the ones in Turkey.

Dillon: I think we'd like to make our phone call now.

Jesse: I could never take your keys by force.

Maxie: Sure, you could. You could grab me, twist me around, throw me to the ground if you have to.

Jesse: Why are you doing this?

Maxie: It would be easy for you if you were a drug dealer and attempted murderer like they said you were. Look, Dillon says that I trust too easily. But some things you just know, like -- like how badly you want to get out of here, and I know how easily you could take these keys from me -- which you would do if you weren't innocent.

[Phone rings]

Maxie: Hello?

Georgie: Maxie, it's me. Dillon and I have been arrested for aiding and abetting a criminal, so if you hear from that Jesse guy, can you please tell him to turn himself in to the police?

Jesse: The police are holding Dillon and your sister, right?

Maxie: How did you know?

Jesse: Can only go two ways. Look, Durant would tell them to stay out of something they know nothing about or strong-arm them. And since he picked the second, it means that he's desperate to find me, which means he thinks I'm guilty.

Maxie: He's never even met you. He only knows that someone told him it was you that tried to kill him. You have to meet Durant face to face and convince him that you're not guilty.

Jesse: You're saying turn myself in?

Maxie: You're innocent, and I want my sister and Dillon out of police custody.

Dillon: Uh, you know, Mr. Durant, it kind of occurs to me that -- and this is not a threat at all, this is more of an observation -- but maybe it's not the smartest thing to arrest the Police Commissioner's daughter? Just a thought. Just --

Georgie: And, you know, Dillon is from one of the most important families in Port Charles. You know, his grandfather, I'm sure, will be down here immediately demanding that he be released. Edward Quartermaine knows people.

John: You know, a funny thing about the law -- if either of you helped Beaudry escape or hide, it really doesn't matter who the Police Commissioner is or how many judges your grandfather has in his pocket. The only way for you to get out of this thing is to tell me where Beaudry is hiding. That's not a threat. Just an observation.

Officer: Mr. Durant? Line one asking for you. Says his name is Beaudry.

John: John Durant.

Jesse: I want to meet you face to face.

John: Well, I'm right here. Anytime you want.

Jesse: I'm not coming in the station. I'll see you at General Hospital, second floor, 20 minutes.

John: You know, you could've saved us a lot of trouble if you'd done this in the first place instead of having Dillon and Georgie do your dirty work for you.

Jesse: I don't know a Dillon or Georgie. Look, I'm solo on this one, Durant, and you're the only one I'm talking to.

Alan: May I say that Steve Hardy must be spinning in his grave.

Tracy: And well he should. This is a travesty.

Lorenzo: What I've suggested is in the best interest of the hospital.

Alan: Somehow the benefit of a gunrunning gangster on this board escapes me.

Lorenzo: I don't know where you get your information. I'm a legitimate businessman with interests in several corporations, including E.L.Q.

Tracy: Skye, this is your fault. You insisted on bringing this poseur into our midst.

Skye: I helped revive a dying company. I'm the one who found an investor with deep enough pockets to fix what you broke.

Tracy: He's a criminal!

Luke: Easy, pumpkin. Don't break something we might need later.

Skye: Justus, you're a lawyer. Shouldn't she have proof before she starts throwing around these accusations?

Justus: If she wants to avoid being sued for slander.

Monica: You know, honestly, Tracy, your better half is every bit the criminal that Alcazar is.

Luke: Well, thank you, Dr. Qmaine.

Louise: You're really related to these people?

Justus: So you see why I need you in my life right now?

Luke: It seems to me that Lorenzo has as much right to buy his way into legitimacy as anybody else here, and he has something that the rest of you don't -- money to save the hospital. Greenbacks. Lettuce. The man is crawling with cash.

Alan: Alcazar is no different than Sonny Corinthos or Jason. They think if they contribute money to charity that their philanthropy will wash the blood from their hands.

Luke: I love it when he gets all Shakespearean.

Alan: No amount of money will ever change the fact that you're all killers, thieves, kidnappers, extortionists!

Carly: That can't be my husband you're describing, considering how all of you have mismanaged this hospital, especially you, Alan. I would think you'd be on your knees thanking him.

Lorenzo: The natives were getting restless, honey.

Carly: I promised you I'd be here. So I suggest that if you want Lorenzo to help you out with the hospital that you apologize to him -- now.

Sam: Hey. Sorry I'm late. I just came from Dr. Thomas.

Jason: Why?

Sam: Dr. Thomas wants Sonny and Carly to take part in Michaelís therapy.

Jason: Carly broke into Reeseís apartment and knocked her out.

Sam: I'm not surprised.

Jason: And Sonny's so angry, he can't even consider that Carly could be right.

Sam: Well, do you think she's on to something?

Jason: She could be. But Sonny doesn't want to listen, and that's always a bad sign.

 [Knock on door]

Sonny: It's me.

Reese: I'll be right there. Hi.

Sonny: Can I come in?

Reese: Yeah. It's pretty weird to ask permission to come into your own place, huh?

Sonny: There's something I got to talk to you about, ok?

Reese: You know what? There's something I have to say to you, too. I'd like to go first, all right? I wasn't completely truthful with you, Sonny, and I'd like to fix that.

 [Bell rings]

Jesse: Dillon and Georgie will be released by the time I get to the hospital.

Maxie: How do you know?

Jesse: Durant has a reputation for being highly political. He's going to want the Police Commissioner on his side, and he doesn't need Georgie and Dillon anymore.

Maxie: Ok, now what?

Jesse: Now I meet with Durant and hope he believes me.

Maxie: And what if he doesn't?

Jesse: I'll punt. You get used to stuff like that when you're undercover.

Maxie: Jesse, um -- it's a long walk to the hospital.

Jesse: What's to stop me from blowing this meeting with Durant and heading south?

Maxie: Do you want to clear your name? Here's your chance.

Jesse: However this turns out, I'm glad we met.

Tracy: Alan, don't you dare apologize.

Carly: I don't think you realize what kind of trouble G.H. is in. It was already on the edge, thanks to Alanís bad management.

Alan: You have no idea how a hospital is managed.

Carly: No, but I do know that it's liable for millions of dollars.

Monica: That's thanks to your father's lawsuit.

Justus: Alcazar's willing to mitigate the damages.

Lorenzo: All that matters at this particular time is that the hospital needs the Alcazars more than it needs the Quartermaines, so I suggest we put it to a vote.

Justus: Straight up or down, we might as well.

Lorenzo: If I'm elected to the board, the hospital will get the money it needs to survive.

Monica: And if you're not?

Lorenzo: Carly and I will leave and we'll find another way to contribute to the good people of Port Charles. Dr. Quartermaine, you're the Chief of Staff.

Alan: All those in favor of having Lorenzo Alcazar on the board, raise your hands.

Jason: I am the first person to admit that Carly has horrible judgment, she doesn't think, and she's very obsessive.

Sam: Jason? So far, I don't hear any reason for Sonny to mistrust Reese.

Jason: Ok. Reese latched on to Sonny when she first got here and then on to Michael, and now all of a sudden she's Bobbieís lawyer?

Sam: All right, all important people in Carlyís life.

Jason: Exactly. Her ex-husband shows up out of nowhere -- someone who might have shed a little light on some things -- and within days he's dead, thanks to Ric, who also lying.

Sam: Have you laid it out to Sonny this way?

Jason: Yeah, Sonny sees the same things I see. He just thinks I can't be objective.

Sam: Sonny could be right.

Reese: There was a moment when I was lying on the floor that I regained consciousness. And it was fuzzy, I admit it, but I thought I saw Carly standing across the other side of the room. And then I lost consciousness again, and when I woke up, I was alone.

Sonny: You didn't tell me that.

Reese: Honestly, I didn't know if it was real. And then when you found the bracelet, I realized.

Sonny: But you said the bracelet was yours.

Reese: I didn't want to make things worse between you and Carly. I mean, you're always at each other's throats, and the more trouble there is between the two of you, the worse it is for Michael.

Sonny: So you were willing to cover everything up, the breaking and entering --

Reese: I thought would handle it myself.

Sonny: How? How were you going to do that?

Reese: I went to go see Carly and I spoke to her face to face, and I really don't think that she's going to bother me anymore.

Sonny: So I'm just supposed to ignore that you lied to me again?

John: Detective Beaudry. We finally meet, not counting the time you shot me.

Jesse: I was framed.

John: Mm-hmm. Oh, I've heard that one before.

Jesse: How long you in that thing for?

John: Maybe forever.

Jesse: Look, I'm sorry. That's a raw deal. I'd like to help you nail the guy that did it.

John: Oh, yeah. I'm sure you would.

Jesse: There's a dirty cop on the Port Charles police force. He took drugs from the evidence locker.

John: Gee, an addict cop?

Jesse: I don't think so. I think he's sitting on them to sell. Maybe he got into some trouble, owed somebody some money or something. I don't know.

John: Yeah, well, you never know what makes a good cop turn. Do you have a name of this cop? We can make this whole thing go away right here.

Jesse: I don't know his name.

John: You have any evidence to back it up?

Jesse: No.

John: All right, so let's review. You've got a rotten cop sitting on a fortune of stolen drugs who shot me and framed you and no evidence to back it up, huh? And I am apparently supposed to believe you because you look so damn honest?

Jesse: If I wanted you dead, I'd drop you right here. And if I was guilty, I'd be on the run.

[Elevator starts]

John: Beaudry, I would be a fool to buy your story. I may not be the man I used to be, but I ain't no fool.

Luke: Aren't you sick of this place yet?

Skye: More than you know. What's your excuse?

Luke: I left something. This. This is the reason that I resisted getting one of these things for so long. I knew wherever I go, I always leave it behind.

Skye: You're technologically challenged.

Luke: Baby, on the information highway, I qualify as roadkill. But I still have time to reach my bookie at Delmar. The man's a miracle worker. Yeah, I know, I know. Now you're going to tell me that gambling is an evil and that I'm on the road to ruin and that my dark side is too dark -- blah, blah, blah, blah.

Skye: Yeah, well, don't need me to remind you. I'm just --

Luke: What's on your mind, Blaze?

Skye: Did you see Carly and Alcazar here today?

Luke: Yeah.

Skye: No, I mean the way they stood there, absolutely ready to catch each other if they fell. What's it like to be loved like that? I want to know what that feels like from the inside.

Luke: Well, you're the only one stopping you from knowing.

Skye: No. There's a difference. Oh, Lorenzo may be dangerous and his dark side might even rival yours, Luke but, I don't know, there's something vulnerable about him. He's not afraid to show how much he adores Carly -- worships her, in fact. There's total trust between them and no fear.

Luke: Well, it's early yet. All that will change.

Skye: You're wrong. Alcazar is devoted to Carly. And she doesn't have to worry about jumping through hoops to keep him interested or wonder if she's enough of a challenge for him. No, Carly has Alcazar's heart and she knows it. And that must be some kind of wonderful. That's all I'm saying.

Ofc. Murphy: Freeze!

John: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Beaudry escaped through the hatch. He can't be far. Find him. Find him!

Ofc. Murphy: Let's go.

Carly: I can't tell you how much I loved seeing Tracyís face when you got the votes.

Lorenzo: Woman's not a very good sport, is she?

Carly: Oh, she's a vindictive snob who loves to destroy other people's lives. She had no right to tell you that you were trying to buy prestige and social status.

Lorenzo: Even though it's costing me tens of millions?

Carly: Whatever. Your money's the same color as theirs -- which they don't have very much of, by the way. I am so proud of you. I am so proud to be your wife.

Lorenzo: So you're happy?

Carly: Are you kidding? I am married to the most generous, kind, handsome man in Port Charles. Of course I'm happy.  What about you? I mean, is this something that you really want for yourself?

Lorenzo: Hmm, that's a good question. You wouldn't think so, would you, based on the man I used to be. Just going through the motions, running a business that meant nothing for a family that no longer exists. Shows just how profoundly you've changed my life.

Carly: Lorenzo, God. You surprise me every day. The only thing that would make this more perfect would be if Michael could accept you.

Lorenzo: Well, he will in time. I told you I can be very patient.

Carly: Well, I might have a way we can hurry things up.

Sam: People have all kind of reasons of getting together and blowing apart. I mean, look at us. Not that I'm complaining or anything, but you and I got together so Michael could have a family.

Jason: Does that make you feel bad?

Sam: No. No, Jason, it's the single-best thing that's ever happened to me. It's just that, you know, I can't pretend. I know that you love me now and you know that I love you, but you were willing to sacrifice a lot.

Jason: You know, for you --

Sam: Just hear me out for a second, ok?

Jason: Mm-hmm?

Sam: I'm just saying that if Sonny's right and you can't be objective -- it's not about Carly, this is about Michael. You see that kid with your heart, and you're going to make sure that he is happy whatever it takes. That's why I truly believe that you're not being fair to Reese.

Reese: I lied to keep the peace. If you can't accept it, you're welcome to leave.

Sonny: What are you going to do? What, what are you going to do? I mean, you can't make a habit of this. I already told you how I feel about lies.

Reese: Fine. The next time anyone attacks me, I'll make sure I come clean right away.

Sonny: Ok, and we're going to make sure that Carly never pulls a stunt like this again. All right.

Reese: You know, I don't expect that Carly and I will ever be friends. But she's a fact of your life and she is a fact of Michaelís, and your son's well-being should be everybody's priority right now.

Sonny: Then we're on the same page.

Reese: From now on, it's only the truth between us, ok?

Sonny: Then we got nothing to worry about.

Reese: Right.

Georgie: Maxie? Maxie?

Dillon: Not in here either. Ok.

Georgie: Wait, this doesn't make sense. Why would the police just let us go? I mean, do you really think we intimidated the D.A.?

Dillon: Yeah, and I'm Humphrey Bogart. No, he got his meeting. He got his meeting with Jesse. He doesn't need us anymore, that's why.

Georgie: Ok, so if Jesse left, then -- what if he took her with him?

Radio announcer: The Secretary of State announced --

Maxie: Think you could turn that up a little bit?

Jesse: Maxie!

Maxie: Sorry, I didn't mean to startle you. Are you listening to the news to see if they D.A. put an A.P.B. out on you?

Jesse: What are you doing here?

Maxie: I think you're innocent, and I want to help you prove it.

Reese: Hi.

Ric: You ok?

Reese: Yeah. Can you come in?

Sam: Who is it?

Carly: It's Carly. I need to speak with Jason about Michael.

Sam: He's at Sonny's -- defending you, by the way.

Carly: That's what friends are for.

Sam: Oh, how would you know, Carly? You've never been a friend in your entire life. You don't think about anyone but yourself.

Carly: Well, I certainly don't waste my time thinking about you.

Sam: Really? Well, how about your son, Carly? He needs a mother, not a loose cannon.

Carly: Can you just open the door?

Sam: Can you just give it a rest and stop obsessing over ways to make Reese look bad and accept the fact that your ex-husband has moved on with another woman? Because, Mrs. Alcazar, there is nothing you can do about it!

Sonny: Reese knew it was Carly who attacked her. She covered for her to avoid a big fight.

Jason: I guess that's one way to look at it.

Sonny: Ok, if this is your idea of protecting me, Jason, I donít need you on the job on this one. Listen to me, I don't want her hassled by Carly, you, or anyone. Just leave Reese alone, will you?

Ric: This is you.

Reese: Charlotte Reese Roberts. "Carly" to my family and friends. I was cute, huh?

Ric: Yeah, to say the least.

Reese: Yeah, well, not after the accident. Spent weeks in a coma, and then there was dozens of operations, reconstructive surgery. You know, it was a long and very painful process.

Ric: Well, they did a hell of a job, I got to tell you. It's amazing. Didn't turn out too bad.

Reese: It's just not me. You ever look in the mirror and see somebody else's face? I just disappeared. The life that I had lived and the past -- that was gone, too, stolen from me by my very good friend Caroline. You know, she never really liked who she was.

Ric: She thought you were dead.

Reese: Yeah, everybody did.

Ric: Why would you let everybody believe that?

Reese: My mother made that decision for both of us. So everything about that past life, it's all right there in the box. That's it.

Ric: Yeah, well those are a ticking time bomb, and you know it. As long as you have those pictures, Sonny could definitely find out that you are the real Carly Roberts. I don't know, his ex-wife's friend, nemesis, what?

Reese: So what do you think? I should get rid of all the pictures and these memories, everything?

Ric: Well, you said that your past died a long time ago, so I guess the question is, can you let it go?

Reese: Why is it so difficult? I've been Reese most of my adult life.

Ric: Believe me, ok, I go through these same issues every day. I learned that the child inside of me that had questions, needed answers.  You may never get them, all right? So if we can't change where we were or who we were, then we just change where we're going. Who do you want to be, hmm? Do you want to be Reese? Do you want to be Charlotte? You decide.

Reese: Why is this so hard?

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Georgie: She's gone.

Dillon: She probably took off with Jesse.

Felicia: Where's Maxie?

Jesse: It'll work as a hideout.

Lorenzo: There's a surprise for you.

Sam: I saw Ric going into Reeseís apartment last night.

Jason: Carly's right.
