Maxie: I'm going to go put some dry clothes on.

Jesse: Yeah. No.

Maxie: What's wrong? I just want to turn on the --

Jesse: Shh. I think someone's outside.

Maxie: Murphy?

Jesse: I can't tell. But if the light's on, whoever it is gets a clear look at us. Keep it dark, and stay away from the windows.

Nikolas: You and Jax just got married. I hope you're not in as much trouble as Emily and I are.

Courtney: Emily is going through the worst thing a woman could possibly go through -- being raped. You know, as much as you love her, you can't make it better. I know what it's like to not be able to make it better for the person you love. I mean, I can't give my husband a child. You know, we're both failing the people we love, and you know what happens next. I can already feel Jax just drifting away.

Jax: It's just a matter of keeping the surrogacy as simple and straightforward as possible.

Elizabeth: And you think my marriage would complicate things?

Jax: I would be grateful if you could hold off the marriage until after the baby's born. It would just make things so much simpler. I'd be happy to add to the surrogacy fee.

Elizabeth: No, no, Jax. You don't have to do that. Look, all of our emotions are running high right now, but I can understand your concern, and I would like to keep things amicable.

Jax: Yeah, me, too.

Elizabeth: Well, Lucky and I have not set a date for the wedding yet, and at this point we're flexible.

Lucky: Flexible about what?

Elizabeth: Jax would like us to hold off the wedding until after the baby's born.

Lucky: Why would we want to do that?

Jax: Because there's a legal complication. If you and Elizabeth are married during the time of birth, then you would be the legal father of my child.

Ric: You're still a little warm.

Alexis: Next you're going to try to sell me a bridge in Arizona.

Ric: I'm going upstairs. I'm going to get some more ice, ok? Don't move.

Alexis: Ok. I won't take that three-mile run I was contemplating.

Ric: Don't worry about it. As soon as the storm lets up, we'll get you to the hospital, run a marathon.

Ric: She's -- she's still got a fever, which means she's probably got an infection so -- I mean, it's what Dr. Meadows said -- she's worried about that.

Sonny: If there's anything I can do --

Ric: We got to get her to a hospital. You know, otherwise, she and the baby --

Sonny: I'll go get help.

Lorenzo: If anybody's going to go out in the storm to find help, it'll be me.

Maxie: Jesse?

[Phone rings]

Maxie: Hello? Dad?

Mac: Maxie -- Maxie? Maxie, where are you? Are you ok?

Maxie: Dad, I tried to call you, but the signals are all messed up.

Mac: Is Jesse keeping you there? Is he holding you against your will?

Maxie: No, dad. Jesse's innocent.

Mac: Tell me where you are. We'll come get you.

Maxie: Listen to me, dad. Jesse was framed. I swear.

Mac: Well, then tell him to turn himself in.

Maxie: Jesse didn't do it. It was --

Mac: Maxie?

Maxie: Dad?

Mac: Maxie?

Maxie: Murphy is the bad cop. Dad?

[Maxie screams]

Mac: I lost her. Damn storm.

Felicia: Is she -- is she with Jesse Beaudry? Did he kidnap her?

Mac: Maxie says he's innocent. That's why I told her to get Jesse to turn himself in.

Georgie: That will make them turn and run as fast as they can.

Jesse: I'm sorry, Maxie. I heard voices. I thought Murphy broke in.

Maxie: No, no, it was my cell phone. It worked long enough for my dad to get through, and I -- I told him you were innocent, but I'm not sure if he heard me. Did you see anybody outside?

Jesse: I couldn't tell. It doesn't matter. He's not backing off. Murphy's looking for a way to shut us up permanently.

Courtney: You know, I was about to open this. I don't usually drink alone, but I figured that sitting out the storm with a bottle of champagne was better than fighting with Jax.

Nikolas: Uh-huh. Here. Allow me.

Courtney: I'll find some cups.

Nikolas: Ok.

Courtney: You know, Jax is the one who taught me to love champagne.

Nikolas: So, the two of you are having problems because you can't have his baby?

Courtney: Well, Jax says that being married to me is enough, and that we didn't have to have children, and if we did, we'd just adopt. God forbid I should let less than perfect be good enough. If I couldn't give him a biological child, well, then I was going to move mountains to get him one.

Nikolas: Watch yourself.

Courtney: Oh!

Nikolas: I'm sorry. So this whole thing -- this Elizabeth thing was your idea?

Courtney: Well, I mean, the fact that Elizabeth turned out to be the surrogate was just kind of a twist of fate. Thank you.

Nikolas: You're welcome.

Courtney: Originally, I thought we just needed a gestational host -- a place where they would put my egg and Jaxís sperm, and it would blossom together until it was a little mini version of the two of us. God, it's amazing what all the money in the world can buy you, right?

Nikolas: And what it canít.

Courtney: Hmm. So, anyway, Elizabeth -- she offered to be the little oven. And don't get me wrong, though. It takes a truly generous soul to give up a chunk of your life and carry a child for someone else.

Nikolas: Elizabeth is one of the kindest people I know.

Courtney: Yeah, I'll say. I know that when -- well, when I found out that my eggs were pretty much useless, she offered to give us one of hers. Which means that if she gets pregnant, the baby will be hers and my husbandís. But, hey, I still get to pick out the wallpaper in the nursery.

Nikolas: Stop it.

Courtney: Oh, could I be any more useless? Come on.

Nikolas: Well, does Jax know how you feel? Did you tell him?

Courtney: Jax says that he loves me. But what he says and what I feel -- oh, it's just Elizabeth has become the focus of our marriage.

Nikolas: The same way Emilyís rape has become the focus of ours. Look, I know she wants to get past it, and I know that she loves me, you know. But just to get through the day, she has to shut herself off from the pain of it, so we end up -- we go through the motions, we say all the right things, and then this wall builds up around our true feelings just to protect each other. And the longer that wall is up, the stronger it gets, you know, till it's permanent.

Courtney: Yeah, it's like, you start out not wanting to hurt them, but then you end up just shutting them out.

Nikolas: You got it.

Courtney: Oh, but, you know, Nikolas, you and Emily love each other so much.

Nikolas: Yeah, I know. Courtney, if I thought love could heal Emily, I would never give up. But that scar that Connor left with her? It just -- it goes too deep.

Courtney: Yeah, but I just feel like you and Emily have such an amazing connection.

Nikolas: You don't think you and Jax do?

Courtney: Well -- yeah, I mean -- look, our romance started out as a bet on -- yeah -- on whether or not he could get me into bed.

Nikolas: Wow.

Courtney: Yeah, and I won. At least I thought I did. But now I'll bet that Jax ends up falling for Elizabeth.

Jax: Apparently, if Elizabeth gives birth to my child while she's married to another man, the courts won't recognize my rights as the biological father.

Elizabeth: And if we just wait to get married until after the baby's born, then Jax can be legally recorded as the baby's father.

Lucky: What, and if we don't?

Jax: Then the birth mother's husband is listed on the birth certificate. Which means I would have to adopt my own child after it's born.

Lucky: You know what? That doesn't make a lot of sense.

Jax: I know, but that's the law. That's why I'm trying to avoid any complications.

Lucky: Well, it's going to kind of mess things up for us.

Elizabeth: No, not really. I mean, people have long engagements all the time. And what are we talking here, a year?

Jax: Look, Lucky, we may all be sitting around the campfire now holding hands, but things happen, you know? Could be complications. If for some reason you decide not to sign the adoption papers --

Elizabeth: Wait, wait, wait. Why would he do that?

Jax: I'm just pointing out that --

Lucky: He's pointing out that I actually have a say in what's going on here.

Elizabeth: But there's not going to be a problem, right, Lucky?

Lucky: Hang on. I need to think about this.

Jax: Oh, really? That's -- that's funny because maybe you already have.

Elizabeth: What is that supposed to mean, Jax?

Jax: Well, it's just interesting timing that Lucky proposed when he did. I'm just, you know, throwing this out there, but maybe this is less about Elizabeth and setting a date, and this is more about you wanting to stick it to me.

Carly: What happened?

Ric: Alexis is getting worse.

Sonny: I told Ric that I'll get help and that --

Lorenzo: This is a difficult property to navigate, and I'm more familiar with it.

Ric: Look, Sonny, Alexis and the baby can't risk delays. If he can get --

Reese: You're going to try to get into town?

Lorenzo: I'm going to get as far as the main road. I'm sure there's emergency crews up there. I'll get Alexis help.

Ric: All right, fine.

Carly: What? No, hold on. Sonny said that he'll do it. Let him. And he can take Reese with him.

Carly: You can't wait to get out of here, Sonny, so go.

Ric: Ok, look, at the risk of sounding ungrateful, can whoever goes please keep in mind the well-being of Alexis and the baby are at stake here?

Reese: There's a break in the storm, so whoever goes should go now.

Lorenzo: I won't be long.

Ric: I'm going to go tell Alexis.

Sonny: Uh-huh.

Carly: Lo -- lo, come here.

Lorenzo: Carly --

Carly: You don't have to prove anything to anyone.

Lorenzo: Look, the rest of us may deserve to rot in hell for the things we've done, especially Alexis, but that baby deserves a shot at something good. Don't ever say I don't learn from my mistakes.

Carly: Wait, wait, wait. Are you saying that I don't?

Lorenzo: I'm saying you don't have to snipe at Sonny for my benefit.

Carly: I just -- he's just so arrogant. It gets on my nerves.

Lorenzo: Anger and spite can keep the ties between two people alive just as much as love can.

Carly: All right, fine. Reese and Sonny deserve each other. All I care about is that you make it back to me in one piece.

Lorenzo: Walk me to the door?

Reese: Is she doing any better? All right, I'm going to check the rest of the house, make sure everything's safe, ok?

Sonny: I wish there was something I could do.

Ric: Yeah, I know, don't we all. I appreciate you offering to go.

Leticia: Mr. Corinthos? Morgan needs you.

Sonny: What do you mean?

Maxie: I wonder if he heard me.

Jesse: Who?

Maxie: My dad. I mean, I was on the phone just long enough to tell him that you're innocent. I just -- it was so hard to hear, and then the line went dead. I just wish I knew.

Jesse: If you're waiting for the cavalry to come to our rescue, I wouldn't count on it.

Maxie: So, wait, what are we supposed to do, just sit here like ducks in a barrel and wait for Murphy to kill us?

Jesse: Not if I see him first.

Maxie: Oh --

Jesse: "Ducks in a barrel"?

Maxie: Don't make fun. It's something my Grandma Maria says. It must be a Texas thing.

Jesse: Grandma Maria in Texas?

Maxie: Yeah. And if you get us out of here, I'll take you there myself.

Jesse: That's the plan.

Maxie: My dad wants you to turn yourself in.

Jesse: I'm not sure that's a good idea.

Maxie: But we know it was Murphy who framed you.

Jesse: I don't have proof.

Maxie: You have me. I heard what he said to you.

Jesse: People are just going to think that you're trying to protect me.

Maxie: And why would I do that? Oh, that.

Jesse: Your father will figure out what's going on between us. And he'd be right.

Maxie: That has nothing to do with the fact that you're innocent.

Jesse: No one will believe you. But it's too dangerous to stay here.

Maxie: Then we have to go back.

Jesse: No. You will.

Nikolas: Now, has Jax given you a reason to believe that he has feelings for Elizabeth?

Courtney: Come on, he doesn't have to. I mean, she's having his baby. It's irresistible.

Nikolas: I mean, it's only natural that he would feel protective of her, don't you think?

Courtney: Hmm. And now I'm irrelevant.

Nikolas: No. You could never be irrelevant, come on.

Courtney: Ok, you know, don't be nice, all right? You might make me cry.

Nikolas: Go ahead. No one in here but me and the thoroughbreds.

Courtney: Ok. Look --

Nikolas: You all right?

Courtney: Yeah. We both know that I'm a hopeless case. But you, Nikolas, I mean, you have got to be able to get over Emily being raped.

Nikolas: I have. It's not that she was raped that's tearing us apart. It's -- it's that it's changed her, and having to pretend that it hasnít. You know what I mean?

Courtney: Well, do you ever feel like -- like there's a story being told, and then you realize that you're not a part of it? Well, look, I just -- I feel like there's this fairy tale that's being written, and the happy ending doesn't include me.

Nikolas: Hmm.

Courtney: And it sucks.

Nikolas: Yeah. There's nothing worse than watching your life go to shreds and knowing that there's nothing you can do about it.

Courtney: Oh. Come on. There has to be a way that we can fight it.

Nikolas: Oh, we'll try, that's for sure. It's just Emily deserves to have her life back, though, with some peace and joy in it. It's just, the longer this goes on, I'm afraid I'm going to have to love her enough to let her go.

Courtney: Oh, that's so sad.

Nikolas: I know, and I hate it. I hate it. It makes me so mad that I just want to --

Courtney: Hit something?

Nikolas: Yes.

Courtney: Well, I think I know where you can start.

Jax: Come on, this sudden urge to marry Elizabeth is about way more than love.

Elizabeth: How can you say that?

Jax: Because he's never been behind you being our surrogate. He feels threatened by the whole arrangement. You feel marginalized, right?

Lucky: You seem to be the man with all the answers.

Jax: Yeah, now you want a chance to put yourself back in charge, right? Be the breadwinner? The man? Because that's what this feels like to me. A change of ideals, huh? Price tags, maybe? Which is it?

Elizabeth: What are you getting at, Jax?

Jax: If Lucky cared at all about bringing a child into our lives, he wouldn't think twice about putting off the wedding. But he has to "think about it"? And it's not because he wants to keep my baby. So it must be about money.

Lucky: You're twisted.

Jax: No, really, how much will it take, Lucky? A couple hundred thousand more to postpone the wedding? Because you could buy a lot of gifts for Cameron with that kind of cash.

Lucky: I don't give a damn about your money or your baby. I just want to marry the woman that I love.

Jax: Well, it's too bad because we have an agreement.

Lucky: You know, it's amazing how everything comes down to money for you. Like family, children, love -- you just put a price tag on it all, don't you? Is that what really makes you feel like a man?

Elizabeth: Ok, stop!

Jax: All right, you know what?

Elizabeth: Stop! We've got to stop this right now.

Jax: All right, forget it.

Elizabeth: No, no, no, I am not talking to Lucky. I'm talking to you, Jax. You have got to back off. Could you just give Lucky some room to explain, please?

Lucky: Listen, Elizabeth, I told you, I love you, and I want you to be my wife with or without Jaxís baby or his money.

Jax: Yeah, but why now?

Elizabeth: Jax!

Jax: Ok.

Lucky: Maybe because I feel like it's a little out of my control because it is! This baby's going to affect my life, too.

Jax: So you have to go around marking your territory, just in case there's a question about who Elizabeth belongs to?

Elizabeth: I don't "belong" to anyone.

Jax: And that's what drives him crazy. You said Alexis went over the legalities with you.

Lucky: You want to postpone the wedding?

Elizabeth: We just need to figure some things out, Lucky.

Lucky: How about we just cancel it altogether? How is that for a solution? You know what? I take it back -- the proposal, the ring, all of it. Just call us unengaged.

Courtney: Go on! Come on, you can hit harder than that.

Nikolas: What, me and a bag of oats? What's the contest? I don't get it.

Courtney: It's not a contest. It's just letting out your aggressions. Come on. I know you have it in you. Come on.

Nikolas: Ok.

Courtney: Don't be a girlie boy.

Nikolas: Come on, now.

Nikolas: All right, now it's your turn.

Courtney: What? No, not in these heels.

Nikolas: Yep. Come on.

Courtney: No!

Nikolas: No excuses. Come on.

Courtney: Oh, God. Ok.

Nikolas: Come on, bring it on.

Courtney: Ok, ok.

Nikolas: You ready?

Courtney: But wait -- who am I supposed to be mad at? It's nobody's fault what's going on in my life. I don't have anyone to be mad at.

Nikolas: Isn't that the worst? Nothing to rail at but the gods? Come on.

Courtney: Ok.

Nikolas: Oh, jeez, talk about hitting like a girl. Come on.

Courtney: Oh! Oh, my God! Are you ok? Oh. Oh, I'm sorry.

Nikolas: Oh --

Sonny: It's ok, champ. You know what? We're going to get through this, you know that? You and me, huh? Yeah. Put your head up here.

Reese: He's fussing?

Sonny: I think it's the storm or the vibe in this place, I don't know.

Reese: Yeah, it breaks your heart when they can't tell you what's bothering them, huh?

Sonny: Yep. He'll be all right.

Reese: Hey, mind if I try?

Sonny: Do you want to --

Reese: Do you want to come to me? Come here, buddy.

Sonny: Hey, it's ok.

Reese: Oh, come on, baby, it's ok. Come here. I want to play. You got toys over here, don't you? Look at these toys. What have we got? What have we got? Oh, we've got a ducky. Oh, look at the ducky. Yeah, and a bottle. We've got that, too. But this is a mama ducky, and she has little chicks just like mommy and daddy have Morgan. And sometimes, when the wind is howling and it's raining, and the little chicks get scared, do you know what the mama duck does to make them feel better? You know what she does to make her baby not scared anymore?  She holds him tight and keeps him safe so he can have sweet dreams tonight quack! Quack, quack, quack! Quack, quack, quack, quack! Quack, quack, quack, quack!

Sonny: You're doing really good, Reese.

Reese: He's a sweet boy.

Sonny: Remember I told you, if you spend a little more time with the kids that they'll, you know, feel more comfortable around you and --

Carly: Yeah, that's not going to happen. Forget it.

Jesse: You shouldn't be here. It's dangerous.

Maxie: That is such a guy thing to say, and I've had my fair share of near-death experiences.

Jesse: I'm just saying it's me Murphy wants. I don't want you caught in the crossfire.

Maxie: I already am. Get over it. How safe is it for me to try and go home by myself in the middle of a hurricane?

Jenna: Ok, kiddies. Storm's letting up. Which one of you has a cell phone I can use?

Maxie: It's on the table, but it only works some of the time.

Jenna: Well, I won't be able to find it in the dark. We blow a fuse again? Damn place. '.

 [Maxie groans]

Jesse: Run, Maxie!

[Cabin explodes]

Jesse: Get up! Get up!

Maxie: Jenna's still inside.

Jesse: Watch him.

Ofc. Murphy: Put the gun down.

Maxie: You killed her!

Ofc. Murphy: She got what she deserved! This ain't over!

Maxie: Guess again, creep!

Jesse: Let's go.

Maxie: Hey, wait! Where are we going?

Dillon: Georgie, slow down.

Georgie: What?

Dillon: Maxie's going to survive this. You know that, right?

Georgie: Is there anybody on the face of the planet that is more selfish than my sister?

Dillon: Probably somewhere, yes.

Georgie: You know, I had a hole drilled in my head, and did she feel sorry for me? No. Did she even offer me an aspirin? No.

Dillon: I know.

Georgie: And she made my father cry. How lousy is that?

Dillon: Ok, at least your father has feelings. The only time my mom's ever cried in front of me was when her mom died, and that probably had something to do with the will.

Georgie: No, when you come close to death, you're supposed to appreciate life, you know? Not hurt the people that you care about.

Dillon: Yeah, I know, but Georgie, that's you. When you have a crisis in your life, you stop and smell the roses. Maxie is different. She sees each day as a new opportunity to push the envelope a little bit further. That's the difference -- you rescue a kitten, and she rescues a wanted fugitive with a gun who she runs away with.

Georgie: I'm boring.

Dillon: You -- you are real.

Georgie: No. No, I'm good old dependable Georgie.

Dillon: You are smart and perfect and courageous, and every time, I would pick smelling the roses over wanted fugitives.

Georgie: You're just being nice.

Dillon: No, I'm being selfish because my entire life I haven't had that person that I can depend on, and you are, and I need you to stay that person for me.

Georgie: I love you, Dillon.

Jax: Come on, Lucky. This isn't how adults work through their differences. You don't take your ball and go home because you can't have it your way.

Lucky: I'm sorry I showed up for the game at all.

Jax: I just -- I don't buy your innocent act.

Lucky: Yeah, well, that's the first thing you haven't tried to buy since this whole thing started.

Elizabeth: Ok, Lucky, wait --

Jax: You know, it's a good thing that you see this side of him before you dive in headfirst. You ok?

Elizabeth: What do you think?

Jax: Well, you got to agree with me. Lucky was out of line. He has an agenda, and it affects all of us.

Elizabeth: Is this how you view the world, Jax? Trust no one because we all have motives and agendas and legalities? And if someone doesn't agree with you, you just raise the price tag and have it your way?

Jax: Look, I'm sure Lucky loves you. He just had mixed motives about proposing when he did.

Elizabeth: Oh, you don't know that. You don't know Lucky like I do. He is not the type of man to sit at home and think up ways to manipulate people!

Jax: Well, tell me he's not threatened by our arrangement.

Elizabeth: He is dealing the best way he can. And if he needs to be reassured that I love him, so what?

Jax: Well, if he needs to be reassured of that --

Elizabeth: You know what? He is the most honest and decent and down-to-earth person I know. And I can guarantee you, he does not have some dark plan to shut you out of your baby's life.

Jax: Look, Elizabeth, I'm a businessman. I'm a businessman first and a romantic second. And -- I mean, we have a contract.

Elizabeth: Wow. Well, then beyond all the buying and selling, there could be a baby involved if I'm pregnant. And if I'm not, I'm going to have to agree with Lucky. We should have that contract null and void.

Jax: Ok. I guess that settles it. I'll tell Courtney.

Courtney: Oh, my God, Nikolas, I'm sorry!

Nikolas: Oh!

Courtney: I'm so sorry. Are you ok?

Nikolas: Oh -- was that a horse that punched me or --

Courtney: Look, I'm sorry! You told me to go for it!

Nikolas: Oh. Since when do you pay attention to anything I say?

Courtney: You're bleeding. What should I do? What do you want me to do?

Nikolas: Uh, stay away from me? No, I really mean it. Stay away from me.


Ric: Hey, hey, it's ok. I'm here.

Alexis: Any word from the medevac?

Ric: No, not yet, but I'm confident. Are you thirsty? You need fluids. I was going to bring you ice chips, but I thought you'd like that better.

Alexis: Mmm. A fruit pop.

Ric: It's raspberry.

Alexis: No seeds.

Ric: No seeds, I checked.

Alexis: Mmm. Do you have any chocolate to dip this in?

Ric: No, but there are some really good petit fours left over from after the party. Hey, listen, you get out of this, I'll buy you an entire chocolate factory.

Alexis: Liar.

Ric: I'm desperate.

Alexis: Why are you here with me?

Ric: Uh, the weather? You know, it's pretty bad outside -- I don't feel like going out there. Not to mention, our party guests are very, very tense. This room is positively Zen-like. It's very peaceful and very relaxed.

Alexis: And he still lies.

Ric: Where would you have me be, Alexis?

Alexis: Maybe with somebody else less problematic. You're being really sweet, and I appreciate it. But I know you're here because of the baby.

 [Morgan fusses]

Sonny: Carly, I'm just -- Carly, I'm calming him down because of the storm.

Carly: That's great. I'll take my son now.

Sonny: No, no, just let me --

Carly: Ok.

Sonny: You know what? I'm going to take him. You know why? Because I don't see enough of my son, and I'm going to put him to sleep right now. Just -- everything's fine, ok? Hey, say good night to Reese. Say good night to mommy, ok? Say good night.

Reese: Good night, Morgan.

Carly: Bye.

Sonny: Bye-bye! Let's go.

Carly: You are so transparent.

Reese: Look, I am not in the mood for one of your tantrums, Carly, so if you're going to throw one, throw it alone.

Carly: Ok, hold on, or the first thing I'll throw will be you out that window.

Felicia: Do you think that Jesse forced her to say she was ok?

Mac: I don't know; I don't know. I'd like to think that she would send me some kind of code to let me know. Maxie's a bright girl.

Felicia: Then why would she run away with a stranger when she's barely out of the hospital?

Dillon: Well, it makes sense, considering her motivation.

Mac: This isn't "Bonnie and Clyde," Dillon.

Georgie: No, wait, dad, Dillonís right. Maxie almost died so, you know, she's got to live life on the edge, you know, be crazy, go for the wild man instead of the decent guy.

Felicia: She could be telling the truth. Maybe Jesse is innocent.

Mac: What do you think?

Dillon: You're asking my opinion?

Mac: Why not, all right? You know, one bad boy defending another? Whatever.

Georgie: Wait a minute. Jesse is no Dillon, and you know it.

Mac: Come on, Dillon. Is he guilty or innocent?

Dillon: Mac, I don't know that. I can't gauge that right now. I -- although you could ask him yourself.

Felicia: Maxie!

Maxie: I'm fine, mom. We're both fine.

Georgie: Maxie, what happened to your head?

Mac: Did you do that to her?

Maxie: No, stop! He saved my life, dad!

Felicia: You've got to get that looked at, all right?

Maxie: Look, Mac said this is what Jesse should do if he was innocent, and I am not going anywhere until you listen to every word he has to say.

Jesse: Go with your mother, Maxie. Go get it checked out.

Felicia: Come on.

Mac: I'll listen. But I don't see any chance of you telling me the truth.

Ric: Well, yeah, of course I care about the baby. I care about the baby's mother, too. Imagine that.

Alexis: Imagine that.

Ric: All right, the truth is I couldn't figure out if you kept popping into my head at these inopportune times was because that you were carrying this child.

Alexis: When do I pop into your head?

Ric: When I'm brown-bagging it at the park. I think about you and Kristina and Missy, Bunny, Spot, whatever, feeding the baby ducks.

Alexis: Bunny.

Ric: Right.

Alexis: Go ahead.

Ric: Also, how we used to barter, you know, about -- you know, if you put the cap on the toothpaste, which makes me crazy, then I might remember to put the seat down.

Alexis: You lost that one.

Ric: Yeah, I did, didn't I? Or the fact that lately every time I -- I lay down to go to sleep, I notice that there's see, your side of the bed -- there's nobody there.

Alexis: What do you plan to do about that?

Ric: Well, I'd be willing to, you know, postpone, wait out the birth of the baby until, you know -- before we make any kind of decision, you know, like divorce. I'd be fully prepared to -- to go forward with the relationship. I mean, what do you think about that?

Carly: You know the old saying -- I wouldn't be paranoid if they weren't out to get me.

Reese: You think I'm out to get you?

Carly: You rode into this town on my father's coattails. You went after Sonny, then Michael, and then my mother. And now you're going after the most vulnerable one of all -- my little boy.

Reese: I was simply calming a frightened child, Carly. Nothing more.

Carly: You are a predator.

Reese: High praise coming from a carnivore like you.

Carly: You know, there's something in your eyes -- anger, resentment, I don't know what it is. I don't know what you want or why. What is it? Sonny? Because if it's Sonny, I will step back, and you can lick your lips and devour him whole. But you don't get my children. Not now, not ever. You got it?

Reese: Yeah, I hear you.

Carly: Say it again, like you mean it.

Reese: I said I got it. Now, get off of me!

Dillon: Everything that Jesse just told Mac fits perfectly with the story he gave me and Maxie. He was about to bust a dirty cop. That cop had drug connections. That cop shot John Durant, tried to frame him for attempted murder.

Georgie: Ok, then what's with the combustible light bulb?

Dillon: I don't know. It's crazy, huh?

Georgie: What are you thinking?

Dillon: I'm thinking Colin Farrell plays Jesse in my version.

Jesse: Did they get to the cabin?

Mac: I'm listening. What'd you find?

Ofc. Logan: Just like Beaudry said, the place was burned up. A woman's body inside. We'll get forensics on that right away.

Mac: Murphy?

Ofc. Logan: Nope. No indication he was even here.

Mac: All right. No sign of Murphy.

Jesse: That's impossible! We cuffed him to the porch!

Mac: Arrest this guy. Read him his rights.

Maxie: No, dad, stop! I won't let you.

Courtney: Are you feeling any better?

Nikolas: I don't know, you tell me, Courtney. I can't see it.

Courtney: It's still bleeding. Maybe we should go back up to the house.

Nikolas: Why? So everyone can laugh at me?

Courtney: Well, there's got to be a first-aid kit around here somewhere.

Nikolas: Forget the first-aid kit. Let's just polish off that champagne, shall we?

Courtney: Ok. Oh, God, this isn't really that funny, is it? I'm sorry.

Nikolas: No, not so much.

Courtney: Look, you know, I feel really awful.

Nikolas: Hmm. It's not your fault. Don't worry about it.

Courtney: No?

Nikolas: Uh-uh.

Courtney: Here, why don't you lay your head back or something, stop the bleeding. Come on.

Nikolas: All right.

Courtney: Just slowly --

Nikolas: Ok. Thank you. Now I know what they mean -- "It only hurts when you laugh."

Courtney: Then donít.

Elizabeth: Guess this didn't turn out to be quite the gala evening we all hoped.

Lucky: Yeah, I thought it was a bad idea from the start.

Elizabeth: Are we still talking about the party? Lucky, I just wanted this to be a nice evening for us, get away from our work and bills and see how the other half lives.

Lucky: Yeah, it's overrated. I would have actually just rather the two of us stay home, cook dinner together.

Elizabeth: Would've been enough for me. If that's all we ever do, it would be enough.

Lucky: I don't know.

Elizabeth: Well, I do. Lucky, I love you. You are all I need -- who you are, what you believe in, how much you love Cameron. Now, why on earth would I ever risk losing all of that again?

Lucky: Elizabeth, really --

Elizabeth: Ok, listen to me. You would make me the happiest woman in the world if you'd just be my husband. Lucky, will you please marry me?

Reese: Carly? Carly!

Carly: Oh! Charlotte Roberts, don't you dare die!

[Carly screams]

Reese: Carly, wake up!


Carly: How could it be you? How could you be Charlotte?

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Lucky: You're proposing?

Elizabeth: You didn't really give me a choice.

Courtney: What are you insinuating?

Jax: I'm just simply wondering what I walked in on.

Dr. Thomas: Commissioner Scorpio, please.

Jason: I'll cut your hands off before I let you call the cops on Michael.

Sonny: What happened?

Carly: Sonny, you have to hear this.
