Ric: Hey, where have you been?

Reese: Does it matter?

Ric: Oh, I can't believe we have to deal with this ridiculous lawsuit that Alexis has filed. What happened to your face?

Reese: Carly and I got in a little altercation here at Kelly’s. Mike must have cleaned this place up all night long.

Ric: Wow.

Reese: Could you do me a favor, tell him that I'll send him a check?

Ric: Well, why do you want to send it to him? Why don't you just give it to him yourself?

Reese: Because I'm not going to be here, Ric. I want out of our partnership. I'm leaving town.

Ric: Whoa, whoa. I'm not letting you just walk away.

Diego: Hey, when did you start having guards inside the house?

Lorenzo: It's a precaution. I'm starting some new business ventures.

Diego: Oh, what kind of business?

Lorenzo: I'm diversifying. I've set up a meeting with some individuals. I'd like you to bring them to the house.

Diego: Me?

Lorenzo: I think I'm ready to teach you how the business works, Diego -- unless you don't want to get involved.

Diego: You know I want to work with you.

Lorenzo: Diego, you need to think about this carefully. Not everything I invest in is pleasant, and it may involve substantial risks.

Carly: Tell your bodyguard to keep his hands off me.

Lorenzo: What are you doing back here, Carly?

Emily: Why'd you tell my mother about Nikolas and Courtney?

Elizabeth: I knew I should have stayed out of this. Emily, your mother pushed me.

Emily: My mom thinks that Nikolas and Courtney are having this wild affair.

Elizabeth: I only told her what I saw.

Emily: Ok, which was what, exactly?

Elizabeth: I saw Nikolas and Courtney on the Elm Street Pier, and they were --

Emily: Kissing?

Elizabeth: I'm really sorry.

Emily: Ok -- have you said anything to Jax?

Elizabeth: No. No.

Emily: Ok, well, then why did you tell my mother?

Elizabeth: I was being honest with her, just like I'm being honest with you.

 [Knock on door]

Courtney: Oh. Great. Ew. Yuck.

Nikolas: Excuse me.

Courtney: Excuse me.

Ric: Look, you can't leave now. All right, in the first place, you're co-defendant in this lawsuit.

Reese: No, this fight is between you and Alexis. Any decent judge is going to throw this thing out.

Ric: We don't know that for sure.

Reese: Well, then talk to Alexis and make her back off. Come on, Ric, you two love each other. What is going on here? Don't you have a better way of showing it than that?

Ric: Look, if you're not going to stay for the partnership, then just stay for Sonny.

Reese: He's the reason I'm leaving.

Ric: Come here, come here. He definitely respects women that are strong --

Reese: Oh, please.

Ric: Women that don't give up.

Reese: Since when? Does he respect Carly?

Ric: Well, that's kind of a trick question. Yes, in his own way, he does.

Reese: Well, he never forgave her for lying to him, and he's not going to forgive me either. And here I am, I convinced myself that I, of all people, was going to be the one person to hold on to Sonny. Completely arrogant.

Ric: Look, you just got to give it more time.

Reese: I've wasted so much time already. It's not worth it. And the irony is, is that I get my revenge against Carly without even trying and it only cost me Sonny, the man that I love.

Carly: I came back for a couple things I forgot.

Lorenzo: They're in a box in the garage.

Carly: So, it's going to be like that now?

[Phone rings]

Lorenzo: I'm busy. The guard will show you to the garage.

Carly: You're back in the family business already, two seconds after you toss me out?


Carly: So much for going legit. You're picking up right where you left off.

Lorenzo: Yes. That's fine.

Carly: Oh, so what was that, some kind of code?

Lorenzo: Why did you come back here, Carly? We've said everything we needed to.

Carly: So what guy are you now? Are you the sensitive man who loves art and history, who wanted to be a college professor? Or are you the guy who got dragged into his family business because --

Lorenzo: My life is no longer your concern.

Carly: You think this was all a big game to me, don't you?

Lorenzo: I don't think anything. I no longer have to wonder where you are or try to keep you safe or try to convince myself that you don't love Sonny. You do. It has nothing to do with me, and it never has.

Carly: It's not that simple. This whole thing has been killing me.

Lorenzo: Would you please leave and never come back here again?

Carly: You really are as cold as people say.

Lorenzo: And you're an inveterate liar. The divorce will be taken care of quickly.

Monica: Oh, the robbery victim that you brought in stabilized, so when he wakes up, you can ask any questions you want.

Lucky: Thanks.

Monica: You're free to hang around here if you want.

Lucky: Know what, that'd be great, thank you.

Monica: Oh, Lucky -- how is your brother these days?

Lucky: Nikolas is fine.

Monica: Yeah?

Lucky: Yeah.

Monica: Well, I -- I just wondered if you are as worried about him and Emily as I am.

Lucky: You know, all marriages have rough spots sometimes.

Monica: Oh, yeah, I know that, but it's got to be kind of frustrating for Nikolas. I mean, Emily is having a really hard time getting past what happened.

Lucky: Yeah, but Nikolas has been good for her.

Monica: Yeah, but can he go the distance? You know, people do grow apart. Even the good ones.

Lucky: You know what? Honestly, I've been working so many doubles lately, I barely know what I'm doing myself, much less anybody else, so --

Monica: Yeah, well, I know about that.

Lucky: You know what, I should go check on that victim.

Monica: Ok.

Lucky: Thanks.

Courtney: Why did you switch your room to the one across from me?

Nikolas: I didn't, I didn’t. I was --

Courtney: What? But you were in the bungalow down by the water.

Nikolas: I know I was, but it was infested with lizards so -- yeah, it was, and so they moved me up to this one.

[Courtney groans]

Nikolas: Look, I swear I didn't have any idea that you were in the room across from me.

Courtney: This is so weird. It's weird, right?

Nikolas: I know.

Courtney: I mean, first the airplane, now the hotel, and now this? I mean, Nikolas, nobody's going to believe it. It's way too much of a coincidence.

Nikolas: Oh, I don't think it's a coincidence anymore. I think it's a plot or something by mind-altering space aliens, and they're trying to get us to eat fruit and granola.

Courtney: Oh, you got my -- you got my breakfast.

Nikolas: That's your breakfast?

Courtney: Yes.

Nikolas: Ok. Well, I'll tell you what, we'll switch carts, and then after breakfast I'll ask the concierge to switch me to another hotel. How's that?

Courtney: Well, that's probably a good idea.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Courtney: Ok, I'll get you’re --

Nikolas: All right.

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

Nikolas: Work out much, do you?

Courtney: Shut up.

Nikolas: God.

Courtney: Oh, my God.

Nikolas: It's all that granola and fruit you eat. What did you --?

Jax: Emily. Always nice to see you. What brings you here?

Emily: Something Elizabeth saw.

Elizabeth: She left some notes at the hospital and she just dropped by to pick them up.

Jax: Well, it's great to see you, in any case. Have you heard from Courtney in the Bahamas?

Elizabeth: No, no, not yet. Em, do you want me to walk you to your car?

Jax: You're welcome to stay.

Elizabeth: That's ok, she's in a hurry. Right, Em? Come on.

Emily: Elizabeth, Jax has a right to know.

Elizabeth: I've already said enough.

Jax: You saw my husband kissing his wife.

Elizabeth: If I was certain that Courtney and Nikolas were having some wild affair, I would have told you first and then Jax, but I just don't know.

Emily: Ok. Then I'm going to find out.

Emily: You're wrong about Courtney and Nikolas.

Monica: Oh? You talked to Elizabeth?

Emily: Yeah, one kiss doesn't really mean anything, mom. Everybody's just talking.

Monica: Yes, Em, Elizabeth saw what she saw, and I definitely saw Courtney and Nikolas in a rather personal conversation. Now, Lucky --

Emily: No, what did you say to him?

Monica: Well, nothing, really. I just -- I know he knows something.

Emily: Ok, look mom, I really wish that you would stay out of this.

Monica: Ok, that's fair. I will, and I just want you to know that I'm here if you need me. Ok?

Emily: Ok.

Monica: And I love you.

Emily: I love you, too. Are Courtney and Nikolas having an affair?

Lucky: So what's really on your mind?

Emily: Lucky, I'm serious.

Lucky: I don't know.

Emily: Ok, but you think something's going on, don't you?

Lucky: Listen, you need to talk to Nikolas.

Emily: He had to go to New York on business. Or maybe not. Ok, did Nikolas tell you where he was going? Lucky, I'm his wife. I deserve the truth.

Lucky: He went to the Bahamas.

Emily: So did Courtney.

Nikolas: Do you know if this bacon was on the floor?

Courtney: I don't think so. Oh, but I think that's the piece that I sneezed on. Sorry. That's so gross. Ew.

Nikolas: You know what? I can't remember the last time I was able to laugh like this.

Courtney: Yeah, me neither. So you're going to finish your bacon?

Nikolas: No, no, but thank you for asking.

Courtney: Well, you are absolutely the most polite man I have ever met, Nikolas.

Nikolas: Old habit, I guess. But honestly, I think -- I don't know, I just feel relaxed with you, even on the plane.

Courtney: Oh, yeah, I'm sure it had nothing to do with all the martinis you drank.

Nikolas: No, it was because of you. I don't know, I just -- I think all of this was supposed to happen, was meant to be, maybe.

Courtney: What do you mean, "meant to be"?

Nikolas: I don't know. What if -- what if we were just meant to be friends?

Courtney: Yeah, friends who make each other laugh.

Nikolas: Yeah, who can talk about anything, right?

Courtney: Yeah. Friends who make each other --

Nikolas: What?

Courtney: I'm going to go before I miss my massage.

Nikolas: All right, I understand.

Courtney: Friends, yeah. Sounds good. I like it.

Nikolas: All right. Then it's settled. We're friends. See ya.

Courtney: Ok.

Diego: This way, ladies.

Tracy: What employment agency did he get him from, Thugs 'R' Us?

Skye: Be quiet.

Lorenzo: Thanks for bringing them, Diego.

Diego: Yeah, you're welcome.

Skye: Why did you send Diego after us?

Tracy: You may be C.E.O. of my family's company, but I don't appreciate being summoned this way.

Lorenzo: E.L.Q. is diversifying. We're selling off the Alliance Transport Division.

Tracy: Since when?

Lorenzo: We're going to expand our international base. The Alliance Transport Division is losing money. We're going to sell it off and send the money offshore.

Tracy: You may not use my family's company to front your illegal activities. I warned you that this was going to happen.

Lorenzo: I suggest you consider these.

Tracy: What is it, bank accounts for your ill-gotten gains?

Lorenzo: Phone numbers for the last few business associates who disagreed with me. I suggest you call them and speak to their widows.

Tracy: Well. Now that you've put it that way, international diversification sounds like a great idea, long overdue.

Lorenzo: I thought you'd see it my way.

Tracy: Let's go.

Skye: Oh -- you go ahead.

Tracy: You knew about this. You've been plotting with him from the very beginning, and now we are all hostages to a criminal.

Skye: Oh, will you go, please?

Lorenzo: For future reference, I'm not a criminal, and I don't appreciate being referred to as one. Are we clear?

Tracy: Perfectly. My mistake. It won't happen again.

Skye: So you and Carly are really over?

Lorenzo: I'm going to eat something. Will you join me?

Skye: Oh, I'm not sure I can stay.

Lorenzo: I'm sure you can.

Reese: We're in the middle of a meeting here, Sonny.

Ric: It can wait.

Alexis: Oh, hi. Hi. I just wanted to tell you that a date's been set for the lawsuit.

Ric: Yeah, good, good, good. We'll discuss it, but not here.

Alexis: Ow.

Ric: Come on, come on.

Reese: I'm leaving town.

Sonny: Well, do whatever you want to do. It's just not necessary.

Reese: Why not? Why are you even here, Sonny?

Sonny: I just wanted to make sure you're doing all right, you know? How's this? Is it all right?

Reese: I'm fine.

Sonny: All right.

Reese: You know, I almost left town that one time before, and I should have. Because all I've done is hurt people since I've been here and -- well, Ric thinks that I should stay.

Sonny: Why do you care what Ric thinks?

Reese: I don't, Sonny. I care what you think. You know, I could cut my losses, I could leave town, I could set up shop somewhere else. Or I could stay here and I could try to win back a little bit of trust, knowing that it's probably hopeless. What do you think I should do?

Lucky: I can't believe you saw Nikolas and Courtney kissing and you didn't tell me.

Elizabeth: When was I supposed to say something? Anyway, it's probably just a huge misunderstanding.

Lucky: Well, it's about to get worse because Emily is on her way to the Bahamas.

Elizabeth: What? How did that happen?

Lucky: Well, she asked me to tell her where her husband was and I had to tell her the truth.

Elizabeth: Oh, my God.

Lucky: Nikolas -- he said he had feelings for Courtney.

Elizabeth: Ok, but that doesn't mean they're having an affair.

Man: Mrs. Webber? I'm sorry to bother you. Mr. Jacks sent me to pick up both of you.

Lucky: Jax is sending you a limo?

Elizabeth: First I've heard of it. Is there a problem?

Man: Mr. Jacks said it was extremely urgent.

Courtney: Mmm, that was wonderful. Thank you.

[Phone rings]

Courtney: Oh. Hello.

Jax: Hello, beautiful.

Courtney: Hey.

Jax: How was your flight?

Courtney: Oh, it was -- it was good. It was great.

Jax: Yeah, I'm sorry that you're stuck down there alone.

Courtney: Oh, I'm fine, really. I mean, the room is fabulous, and I just got a massage.

Jax: Well, it's nice to know you're not suffering too terribly.

Courtney: So how's the deal coming along?

Jax: It's almost finished, then I'll head straight for the Bahamas.

Courtney: Hmm, I can't wait to see you.

Jax: I love you.

Courtney: I love you, too.

Alexis: Maybe this lawsuit is about women being treated like second-class citizens.

Ric: Oh, when have I ever treated you like a second-class citizen?

Alexis: Maybe it's about power. Maybe it's about the way that you see me.

Ric: Well, I don't see you very much lately.

Alexis: It's a little hard to miss me. Or maybe that's the problem.

Ric: What is that supposed to mean? Ok, look, you are carrying a child -- my child -- inside of you and you choose not to deal with me. Instead, you decide to throw around all this perverse legal garbage, you hide behind a frivolous lawsuit, and you do everything you can to attack me when basically all I have done is love you and support you and stand by you. So I ask myself, Alexis, why? Why are you doing this, all right? You're painting me as a man who's not compassionate or understanding, you laying the groundwork for me to be an unfit father?

Alexis: What? No.

Ric: Because I'm not going to go through the same thing you did with Sonny, all right?

Alexis: Oh, for heaven's sakes, I would never do that.

Ric: Then why? Then what's going on here, all right? I tell you that it's not a good idea to come to a startup law firm and you turn it into this whole sexual discrimination case. I mean, why? Why are you trying to kill our relationship with this?

Alexis: Maybe I'm trying to save it.

Sonny: You know what, I'm not going to make up your mind for you. If you're going to go, you're going to go. If you're going to stay, then I can't make any promises.

Reese: Then we do have a chance?

Sonny: I don't forgive easily.

Reese: So what does that mean? That there's a tiny chance maybe? That if I stay and I grovel that maybe perhaps someday you'll forgive me? That's not enough, Sonny.

Sonny: I'm not telling you to grovel. I'm just saying that, you know, it's your call.

Reese: I lied to you, and I was wrong and I'm sorry. But when I told you that I love you, that was not a lie, Sonny. And loving you is complicated and it hurts and it's incredibly inconvenient, but it's the truth. I love you. And I know that you love me, too. If you don't, you just tell me and I will walk right out that door and I will never look back. But I want you to look me in the eye and I want you to tell me that you don't love me.

[Shots fired]

[Women scream]

Sonny: Listen, you all right?

Reese: Yeah, fine.

Sonny: Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Max: The guy got away. What happened?

Reese: Somebody tried to kill Sonny.

Sonny: Go home, make sure Michael and Morgan are safe. Hey! Move. Get over there. You're Sandborn.

Sandborn: So?

Sonny: The hit wasn't meant for me, it was meant for you. Who ordered it?

Sandborn: Haven't you heard the word on the street?

Sonny: Lorenzo Alcazar's back in business.

Skye: Why do you insist on feeding me?

Lorenzo: You have a beautiful mouth. I want to make sure the food isn't poisoned.

Skye: No, thanks.

Lorenzo: I'm teasing you.

Skye: No, you're not. Are you sure you really want to live like this?

Lorenzo: Yes.

Skye: Yeah, well, just be careful about E.L.Q., all right? I'm the one who brought you in. It's on my head if you do something nefarious with the company.

Lorenzo: Why would I jeopardize my legitimate corporate business?

Skye: What, so Tracy’s wrong? You're not using E.L.Q. as a front?

Lorenzo: I simply want the company to turn a profit.

[Phone rings]

Lorenzo: I apologize. I need to take this.

Skye: Do want me to leave the room?

Lorenzo: That's up to you. Yes. That's very disappointing. Stay put. I'll be in contact.

Skye: So you're back all the way in the business, aren't you? Lorenzo Alcazar, international scary guy to the 15th power.

Lorenzo: That's one way to put it.

Skye: You're only missing one thing. That's why you sent for me, right?

Lorenzo: No. I enjoy your company.

Skye: Yeah, well, I'm not about to be your mob whore.

Courtney: Oh. This is ridiculous.

Nikolas: I know.

Courtney: I mean, we end up at the pool at the same time.

Nikolas: Chased out by the storm at the same time.

Courtney: You know, Jax will be here as soon as his deal closes.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Courtney: Ok.

Nikolas: I got it, I got it. What? What?

Courtney: I can't believe I didn't tell Jax that you're here. Oh, God, this is --

Nikolas: Well, Courtney, it's not like we -- it's not like we planned this, you know? I mean, there's nothing going on, so there's no reason to put the suspicion in his head.

Courtney: Yeah, but, you know, I'm not going to leave anything else up to chance. I just -- I'm just going to make plans, ok, so that we don't run into each other at the restaurant and -- I don't know, I'll just stay here, order room service or something.

Nikolas: Ok. All right, I'll eat dinner in the dining room and check out in the morning.  See you back in Port Charles.

Courtney: That sounds fine.

Nikolas: Ok, then.

Courtney: Great.

Nikolas: Great.

Courtney: Ok.

Nikolas: All right.  Good luck with Jax.

Courtney: Thanks. Same for you and Emily. I'm sure you guys will work things out.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Courtney: Ok. Bye.

[Courtney screams]

Nikolas: Courtney? Court--

Courtney: Oh, my God!

Nikolas: Courtney!  What, what, what?

Courtney: Snake!

Nikolas: Snake?

Courtney: Why are you laughing? What --

Nikolas: I'm sorry.

Courtney: It's not funny.

Nikolas: Could you -- we need some help with this, please?

Courtney: Oh, my gosh. Ok, no, seriously, I hate -- I hate snakes. I hate snakes.

Nikolas: Really?

Courtney: Yes! Don't get so close! What, are you crazy?

Nikolas: Think it's poisonous?

Courtney: Don't touch it.

Nikolas: That guy on TV does it all the time. Nothing ever happens to him.

Courtney: So he's out of his mind. No, stop it! Don't! Seriously, seriously, I mean, look at him. I mean, what if you hurt him? He's all -- he's all mixed up. I don't know, what if he's a girl and he's laying eggs -- or she's laying eggs?

Nikolas: What?

Courtney: Or what if he's a scout and he's got millions of other snakes?

Nikolas: Courtney, Courtney, you're scaring yourself even more now.

Courtney: Do something!

Nikolas: What --

Courtney: Just do something.

Nikolas: I would, but I got to go get dressed for dinner, so just work it out.

Courtney: Oh, my God, no! Wait, please, please, please, please?

Nikolas: Ok, all right. Plan B, all right? I'll tell you what.

Courtney: Ok, what?

Nikolas: Jump into my arms and I'll -- you know, we'll leave the snake-handling to the snake-handlers. It's not going to do anything. Relax.

Courtney: Ok.

Nikolas: Ready? One, two, three.

Courtney: Ah! Oh! You drop me, I'll kill you.

Nikolas: I'm not going to drop you.

[Nikolas hisses]

Courtney: Oh, my God!

Bobbie: Hey.

Carly: Hi. I know how much you hate to leave the hospital, so I picked up your favorite -- fish and chips. That stand is still open and --

Bobbie: Carly, you got hurt in that fight.

Carly: Mike told you?

Bobbie: You and Reese completely trashed the diner.

Carly: Well, I'll pay for it, ok?

Bobbie: Did you and Reese even stop to think?

Carly: It's not Reese. It's Charlotte. My best friend from high school? I told you about her? She was supposed to have died in that car accident? Well, she didn’t. She changed her name; she came back here to steal my life.

Bobbie: I heard you slept with her father.

Carly: Who told you that?

Bobbie: Mike.

Carly: Oh. Right, because Reese was yelling about it during our fight. It's not like she made it sound, ok? He came on to me.

Bobbie: Oh, Carly!

Carly: Ok, I really need your support. Mama, I can't take it if you start judging me.

Bobbie: Carly, I know you very well, and I know that kind of behavior was not going on when you were so young.

Carly: You were picking up men a lot younger than I was.

Bobbie: I was barely 15 when I hit the streets. You were probably still in cheerleading practice when you were that age. Now, I know that your life wasn't perfect, but you never had to turn tricks. And I know that you had sex with strangers, but never to pay the rent.

Carly: Ok, so you're not even going to try to understand?

Bobbie: Hey, did you ever report her father? Did you ever try to get any help for yourself?

Carly: Ok, why --

Bobbie: No, no, you just decided you were going to go ahead and destroy that whole family.

Carly: Why is my fault if her father seduced me?

Bobbie: I'm not saying it's your fault.

Carly: His daughter got so angry that she had to get in a car?

Bobbie: But did you learn anything at all from that experience? Carly -- oh, honey, come on. You and I are a lot alike. We're both survivors. The difference is I decided that I was going to create something positive with my life. I'm trying to save lives. You're deciding to destroy everybody that comes into your life.

Carly: Ok, well, we can't all be as noble as you.

Bobbie: Hey. I've made a lot of mistakes, but I've learned from them. You don't seem to. You didn't learn anything from what happened with Charlotte. Instead, you just decided you were going to head to Port Charles and get even with me, and you did a really good job of that because Tony’s never really recovered from it.  I would probably still be married to him if it weren't for you, and Lucas would have a real family.

Carly: I thought we got past this.

Bobbie: We did. But that doesn't mean it never happened.

Reese: Looks like you're running out of people to blame for your life.

Carly: When people lose everything, that's when you should be the most afraid of them.

Skye: You know how I feel about Luke.

Lorenzo: Haven't you enjoyed our flirtations?

Skye: What, Carly’s not even out of this house five minutes and you're looking for another messed-up girlfriend? A drunk dying to fall off the wagon, a lonely woman walking close to the edge?

Lorenzo: Isn't that why you're attracted to Luke?

Skye: I love Luke.

Lorenzo: I can provide the same danger and excitement. With better compensation.

Sonny: You know what? You always did have a way with the ladies, Alcazar.

Jax: Hey. Thank you, this is great work on such short notice. Appreciate it.

Elizabeth: Oh, my God, I don't believe this.

Lucky: This place looks just like it was.

Elizabeth: I have missed this apartment so much. I've -- I've dreamed about it.

Jax: Does it live up to your dreams?

Elizabeth: Yeah, it's perfect. It's -- honey, we're back home!

Jax: Well, I'm glad you approve.

Elizabeth: But, Jax, you said you were going to go to the Bahamas. Is this why?

Jax: That was a little white lie. No harm done. I wanted you guys to have this place before I left. So now I'm going to go down and join Courtney in the Bahamas.

Elizabeth: You can’t.


Courtney: Do you see anything?

Nikolas: No.

Courtney: Are you sure? Look.

Nikolas: Yes, I'm sure. There will be no snakes in your bed tonight.

Courtney: Yeah, that's funny. That's pretty --

[Knock on door]

Courtney: Oh, it can't be Jax. It's too soon.

Nikolas: He wouldn't knock, right?

Courtney: Oh. Hi. You're early.

Nikolas: Ok -- I'm going to go change for dinner. See ya.

Courtney: Wait. I think that we're being way too paranoid. You know, I mean, who cares if Jax shows up. It's not like we have anything to hide. Why don't you just stay and have dinner with me?

Nikolas: Ok. We're twins.

Lorenzo: Show Mr. Corinthos into the study.

Skye: Don't bother. I was just leaving. Excuse me.

Sonny: Always good to see you, too. She seems a little bit upset. I'm not sure.

Lorenzo: What brings you here?

Sonny: Well, I hear you're back in business.

Lorenzo: Perhaps.

Sonny: Your people missed, by the way. Kind of ruined my lunch.

Lorenzo: Hmm. So you had to duck? Want me to get your suit pressed?

Sonny: It was pretty sloppy and dangerous going after Sandborn, you know, at Kelly’s in the middle of the day. Kids are always hanging out there.

Lorenzo: I'll keep that in mind. >From now on, I'd like to peacefully co-exist. After all, there's nothing personal between us. Carly has moved out.

Sonny: I'm not interested in your marital squabbles.

Lorenzo: Don't have any. Carly and I are getting divorced. My only interest in you is from a business standpoint, so stay out my way and I'll stay out of yours.

Sonny: How long you think that's going to last?

Lorenzo: Depends on who makes the first move.

Carly: Did you really think you were going to get away with this? You never had a chance with Sonny.

Reese: He just got shot at at Kelly’s, by the way.

Carly: What -- is he ok? Is he hurt?

Reese: Yeah, he's fine. It was probably Alcazar that ordered the hit. If you'd only stayed with him, maybe this whole thing wouldn't have happened!

Carly: At least they're both fighting after me.

Reese: Oh, you can tell yourself that all you want. We both know the truth. You lost your kids. You lost your husband, Sonny, and now even your own mother walked away from you. She abandoned you just like she did before. That's your greatest fear, isn't it, Carly? Always has been, ever since we were kids, because you know deep down in your heart that you don't deserve to be loved by anyone.

Carly: Sonny loves me.

Reese: No, see, he doesn't anymore. You ruined that, too. You don't even need me to rip up your life for you because you're doing fine on your own. You ruined your own life, you ruined mine, you destroyed my family. You ruined any chance I could have had with Sonny, so you know what? I hope you rot in hell.

Jax: Why shouldn't I go to the Bahamas?

Lucky: You don't want Jax to be with his wife?

Jax: I hope you take the apartment in the spirit it was given. I know you guys were happy here. I restored it for both of you. After all, you wouldn't want Elizabeth living here on her own. She almost burnt the place down last time. She needs you, Lucky.

Lucky: That's for Elizabeth and me to decide. Enjoy the Bahamas.

Jax: I intend to.

Elizabeth: Lucky, what if he finds Courtney with Nikolas?

Lucky: If this was innocent and it was just a coincidence that Nikolas and Courtney were in the Bahamas at the same time, then Jax will be his wife, Courtney, and he won't even know Nikolas was there.

Elizabeth: And if it's not innocent? I'm carrying Jax and Courtney’s child.

Lucky: I know.

Elizabeth: What if their marriage breaks up?

Lucky: I know. If Nikolas is thinking about taking the next step with Courtney, I hope someone gets there in time to stop it.

Courtney: What -- what are you doing?

Nikolas: This used to drive my uncle crazy.

Courtney: Well, it looks like a prison. Oh. Sorry.

Nikolas: No, that's ok. I've been building these little forts out of vegetables since I can remember. I have. My uncle, he wouldn't buy me those plastic building sets.

Courtney: Why not?

Nikolas: Too common, I guess. You know, I was supposed to own the company and the buildings and the land. I wasn't -- I wasn't supposed to actually create something with my own hands, you know?

Courtney: So you would always just build those forts?

Nikolas: Yep. But only out of vegetables.

Courtney: Why, because you -- you felt locked out as a child?

Nikolas: Because they're the only thing I knew how to build. I'm going to take -- I'll take the cart out in the hallway.

Courtney: Ok.

Nikolas: Ok.

Courtney: Know what, Nikolas? I mean, if you want, we could have a glass of brandy before -- before you go to sleep.

Nikolas: Yeah, ok. Sure.

Emily: Yes, could you tell me which room Courtney Jacks is in? Right. Hotel policy. I understand. Right, no, it's a security measure. I don't blame you. No, no, I don't want you to connect me. Ok, thank you.

Nikolas: Mmm.

Courtney: You know, I was complaining about us being thrown together because it's been so nice.

Nikolas: Yeah, it has.

Courtney: I wish it wasn't so nice.

Nikolas: I know. God.  I'm going to go home now, ok?

Courtney: Ok.

Nikolas: Ok.  See ya.

Courtney: Ok.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Brook Lynn: Hello.

Dillon: What if that's the guy that drugged your drinks?

Allegra: The sooner this wedding takes place, the better.

Sam: Well, let's get on with it.

Ali: I got us a way out.

Nikolas: We didn't sleep together!

Emily: Am I supposed to believe that?

Courtney: She thinks that Nikolas and I are having an affair.
