Sam: Jason, how long did I sleep?

Jason: It's ok. It's ok. Two guard shifts. They rotate in threes.

Sam: Ok, but how long are the guard shifts?

Jason: Ok, every two hours, ok? We're going to run a distraction when they're changing guards. This house is built into a cliff. There's only one stairway on this side, and it's carved into the rocks, but it leads right to the water.

Sam: No, Jason, no. It's too dangerous. I think we should just go along with the plan, ok? I will marry Andrew. Allegra will set us free.

Jason: I don't think that's -- I don't think that's going to happen.

Allegra: I hope you enjoyed your time together because now we have a real problem.

Dillon: I would so love to get my hands on the scum that drugged your drinks at that party.

Maxie: I should have just listened to Jesse and never even shown up.

Brook Lynn: I know. I'm just creeped out because I don't even remember leaving here or coming back, you know? I mean, who knows where I went in between, right?

[Phone rings]

Brook Lynn: Hang on. Hello. Look, I know that somebody's there, all right? Come on, you know, just say something. No, seriously, just -- anybody -- just -- they hung up. And the number's restricted.

Georgie: You know, Brook, I get calls -- or wrong calls on my phone all the time. It's no big deal.

Brook Lynn: Right, but they say "I'm sorry" and then hang up, right? They don't just stay on the line?

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

Nikolas: I'm going to go home now.

Courtney: Ok.

Nikolas: Wait, wait, wait! Emily, wait, wait. Come on --

Allegra: Andrew insists on seeing his bride-to-be this instant. I'd hoped to give you more time, but this is a delicate situation for all of us.

Sam: We understand.

Allegra: Oh. That's such a relief to me. If my own daughter would only see things that way, we'd never be in this predicament. But since you've kindly agreed to take Aliciaís place at the altar --

Sam: Well, you didn't exactly give me a choice, now, did you?

Allegra: Well, in any case, the sooner this wedding takes place, the better. Even poor, besotted Andrew is bound to figure out sooner or later that you're not my daughter. We want to make sure that you're already married when he does. And as soon as I have control of the money, then you can be on your way.

Sam: Well, you know, it's the best we can do for now.

Allegra: I can assure you this meeting will be well chaperoned. I know it's awkward, but I think it will speed things along for all of us.

Sam: Ok, well, let's get on with it.

Allegra: I've set aside some of Aliciaís clothes, and Dante will take you to a comfortable place to change. My assistants will escort Jason back down to the cellar.

Sam: Not for long, right?

Allegra: No, of course not, dear.

Sam: Ok.

Allegra: I've already given you far more time than I ever planned. I know how much you love him.

Sam: We'll be home soon. We will. Thank you for letting me see him.

Allegra: Not at all. I'm glad I could make you feel better. She really is extraordinary. You hate all this, don't you? I can feel it coming off you in waves. I know your type. I married one once. Always the silent hero, always in charge. Well, your fate's in Samís hands now. That must be difficult for a man like you. But you're just going to have to let her take care of you for once. Don't get in her way by trying to escape. Sam's a sensible girl. She sees the merit in my plan, even if you donít. But that's all right. You'll be rewarded for your patience. We all will.

Jason: I know you're running a con. You're not going to use Sam to get your money.

Allegra: You'd be surprised what money can buy.

Georgie: You know, sometimes a vivid imagination is not a good thing.

Brook Lynn: No, really, it's ok. I mean, it's not like I hadn't thought it might be the guy anyway, especially since he keeps calling me, so --

Georgie: Well, how many times has he called you?

Brook Lynn: That one makes three.

Dillon: When did it start?

Brook Lynn: It started this morning when I got home from the hospital.

Dillon: And has he called you?

Maxie: No, not so far.

Georgie: Wow. You know what? I think I'm just going to go ahead and put my cell away for a while.

Maxie: No, no, that's exactly the kind of thing this perv wants us to do is to rearrange our lives and be scared all the time. There has to be a way we can stop this.

Jesse: I hope you and Brook Lynn can do just that. You're only two of this guy's victims.

Emily: Look, I should have never come down here.

Nikolas: Whatever you're thinking, Emily -- nothing happened.

Emily: You're here, Nikolas! So is Courtney -- even though you said you were going to New York on business.

Nikolas: I know, I know. I lied, but I couldn't just tell you, Emily, that I needed to get away from you.

Emily: Right, to meet Courtney?

Nikolas: No! No! This is a coincidence! Jax is supposed to be here with her! He got delayed. He'll be here.

Emily: What, am I supposed to believe that?

Nikolas: Yeah -- will you just listen to me for one second, ok? Courtney and I are not having an affair. We didn't sleep together, ok? We just -- we keep running into each other everywhere -- here, Port Charles, the roof -- what? -- The roof of the hospital -- what?

Emily: What about you and Courtney kissing on the Elm Street Pier? Huh? Was that an accident, too?

[Knock on door]

Jax: Hey!

Courtney: Oh -- oh -- I didn't expect you to get in so soon.

Jax: Well, the flight got in early. I guess they knew how much I needed to see you. I'm such a terrible husband for leaving you stranded here all alone --

[Cork pops]

Jax: Yeah! I'm going to make it up to you. I spoke to the concierge.

Courtney: Really?

Jax: I did. We're going to have our own sand dune right by the ocean, with blankets and torches and as much champagne as we can drink. We'll make love until the sun comes up.

Courtney: Oh, wait, hold on. Hey, sweetie, you're just going so fast.

Jax: Well, the idea was to take your breath away.

Courtney: No, really, Jax. Look, there's something I have to tell you first.  While I've been down here, I've had a lot of time to think about fate, and I know you don't believe in --

Jax: Fate? Fate has nothing to do with this.

Courtney: Well, what about your deal that came up out of nowhere?

Jax: Ah, it could have waited.

Courtney: You lied to me?

Jax: I exaggerated. I was on my way to the airport. I got a call that the apartment I was reconstructing for Liz and Lucky was ready ahead of schedule. All I had to do was present it to them, so I did. I mean, the sooner they have their own place, the better it is for all of us.

Courtney: Why didn't you just tell me that when you called me, Jax?

Jax: Because I wasn't sure how you'd take it. I didn't want you thinking I was choosing Elizabeth over you. But I'm glad I stayed because Elizabeth seemed upset about something, so maybe she'll feel better now that she's back at home.

Courtney: I think I know why Elizabeth was upset.

Jax: I think it had something to do with Emily. She came to visit Elizabeth at our apartment, and they both seemed a little tense.

Courtney: It's -- it's because of Nikolas -- kind of.

Jax: How do you know that?

Courtney: Nikolas is here, Jax. He's in the room right across the hall.

Jax: Really?

Courtney: Yeah. Look, Emily showed up a little bit ago, and -- and she might have misinterpreted something.

Jax: Do you want to be a little more specific?

Courtney: Well, Emily thinks that he -- she thinks that Nikolas and I are having an affair.

Jax: Are you?

Emily: Elizabeth saw you and Courtney kissing. She tried to keep it to herself, but she told my mother, of all people, and my mother told me.

Nikolas: I'm sorry.

Emily: And that's supposed to make me feel better? Nikolas, what does that mean, you're sorry? Yeah, I should have figured this out a long time ago. I just -- I didn't want to know. When did it start, Nikolas? That night on the hospital roof in the rain?

Nikolas: Nothing "started," Emily.

Emily: All right, well, then why would you and Courtney lie about being on the roof together? Why did you lie about being here?

Nikolas: Because I didn't think you'd understand.

Emily: You got that right.

Nikolas: Come here. Just give --

Emily: Ok. This is the wrong way to deal with this.

Nikolas: Then let's find a better way.

Emily: I want a divorce.

Jesse: We think this guy's hit four times -- once in June, both of you at the party, and this girl two weeks ago. Do you know her?

Brook Lynn: No, I donít.

Maxie: Me, neither.

Lucky: She was found walking the railroad tracks at 4:00 in the morning. She was buzzed out of her mind.

Brook Lynn: Is she ok?

Lucky: Physically, yeah. But she doesn't remember anything between the drink and waking up at Mercy Hospital.

Brook Lynn: I just don't get it. I mean, why us, you know?

Jesse: Well, it looks random so far.

Lucky: Well, you do all have something in common -- you're all the same age, you're pretty, and you were all at the Pizza Shack.

Maxie: What, you think some freak is hanging out there?

Jesse: Yeah, so far the Pizza Shack is one of the common denominators.

Lucky: Has anything happened that just seems off?

Maxie: Yeah. Brook Lynnís getting weird phone calls.

Brook Lynn: It's just a guy. He breathes and then he hangs up, you know?

Jesse: The other two girls are getting them, too.

Brook Lynn: And the number's restricted?

Jesse: And he doesn't say a word?

Maxie: He's not calling me, though.

Jesse: Let's focus on you. Sometimes the exception turns up the best clue.

Jason: Ali?

[Allegra gasps]

Allegra: For a moment --

Sam: You thought I was your daughter?

Allegra: Well, it doesn't matter what I think as long as Andrew believes you're Alicia.

Sam: He will.

Allegra: I so appreciate your help.

Andrew: My ears are burning. I take that back. My entire heart is ablaze.

Allegra: Hmm. I took the liberty of bringing in supper. I hope that's all right.

Andrew: Oh, perfect, but it'll be supper for two, not three.

Allegra: Andrew, now, surely you're not suggesting that I leave my daughter unchaperoned so soon before her wedding when it's simply not done?

Andrew: Well, is there some reason why I can't be alone with my fiancťe?

Allegra: Well, now you and dear Alicia will have years together. Would you begrudge your poor mother one meal? Besides, we have a wedding to plan.

Andrew: Perhaps it'll be simpler for everyone if Ali and I skip the wedding completely. I mean, marriages are so much trouble -- much easier to live in sin.

Allegra: I'm sure that you don't mean to insult me or my daughter, but I --

Sam: It's ok, mother.

Allegra: Darling, you would agree to anything right now. You're emotionally distraught. You're barely yourself.

Sam: I am perfectly capable of having dinner with my fiancť alone, thank you.

Allegra: Are you sure?

Sam: Yes.

Allegra: He is your fiancť. You know best.

Sam: Uh-huh.

Allegra: Remember, I have Jason.

Sam: Bye, mother.

Andrew: Your mother's a little keyed-up tonight.

Sam: Well, yeah. You know how she can get.

Andrew: You seem nervous, too.

Sam: It's just been a very long day.

Andrew: Hmm. Well, you need to forget about your mother and focus on what really matters -- me.

[Music plays]

Sam: What would you do if I told you we've never met?

[Music plays]

Andrew: Why would you suggest that we never met?

Sam: Well, because sometimes I would like to start my whole life over -- you know, go back to the beginning before we ever danced. Let's say the Fountain of Innocents, Paris -- the night you first laid eyes on me.

Andrew: Mm-hmm. That was the most wonderful and torturous night of my life. Why on earth would you want to relive it?

Sam: Well, because my life has not been the same since.

Andrew: Well, one would hope not.

Sam: How could it be?

Andrew: Thank God I came up with that capricious anti-socialite story for your mother. I mean, I had to explain those paparazzi photos of you naked in the fountain. But we both know the truth. Don't we?

Sam: Yes. Yes, absolutely, yeah.

Andrew: That bastard you wasted years on tossed you to the curb with nothing -- literally. You were devastated, terrified. It took days before you found the courage to set foot outside my guest room. A kitten from the storm. But I was patient. Still am. You're looking at me as if I'm talking about someone else.

Sam: I was just thinking. Maybe that girl you rescued that night forgot what a kind, wonderful, amazing man you really are.

Dante: Your mother wants you here for now.

Ali: Where the hell did you go?

Jason: Your mother let Sam and I spend some time together.

Ali: Oh, great. While you were feeling up your girlfriend, I got us a way out.

Lucky: Listen, I'm going to have a uniform take Brook Lynn down to her house, get the clothes the night she was drugged. It's a long shot, but forensics might come up with something.

Jesse: Yeah, good idea.

Maxie: You warned me to stay away from the Pizza Shack.

Jesse: Hey, everything happens for a reason.

Maxie: Do you really think so?

Jesse: Sometimes. I don't know -- it's something a priest told me after my brother got shot. You know, sometimes it helps me with an investigation. I ask better questions. Other times, I'm not so sure. But on this case, it's a good excuse to spend some time with you.

Maxie: Like you need an excuse.

[Phone rings]

Maxie: Hold on, it could be Georgie. She's kind of freaking out. Hello. Hello, Georgie? Is anybody there?

Man: [Altered voice] You owe me.

Courtney: Well, I'll admit that Nikolas and I are attracted to each other, but --

Jax: Well. What -- when did that start?

Courtney: The night Elizabeth was inseminated. Jax, I -- I didn't expect to feel so empty, you know, so deficient and so I went up on to the hospital roof to get some air and Nikolas was there. I tried to leave, but the door got stuck and I don't know. I ended up blurting out my true feelings and -- and he listened. That's it -- he just listened. Look, it just felt so good to confide in him, and once Elizabeth got pregnant, all your energy went towards her and I could kind of understand it. I mean, I know how badly you want a child. It's just --

Jax: I thought we wanted a child.

Courtney: I do -- we do. I -- I do. It's just seeing Elizabeth give you one when I can't is really difficult.

Jax: You aren't deficient.

Courtney: Yeah, but Jax, you aren't a woman. You don't -- you don't know what it feels like to want to carry a child. I mean, God, the only reason I can't is because of the bad choices that I made.

Jax: That is -- that's not entirely true.

Courtney: Jax, come on. Because of one stupid decision, I don't know -- I changed everything. You know, I'll never know what it feels like to have a life growing inside of me or -- or to have a little person that's part of me. I -- oh, God. I don't know how to put it into words. I just don't know.

Jax: But Nikolas -- he understands. Right?

Courtney: He just -- he feels alone sometimes, too.

Jax: I see.

Courtney: But I can -- I can talk to Nikolas without worrying about hurting his feelings. I mean, we can work things out without hurting the people that we love and it just --

Jax: Well, that's debatable.

Courtney: What do you want me to say, Jax?

Jax: Well, for a start, you can explain how he ended up across the hall from you.

Courtney: It was a coincidence.

Jax: Oh, really?

Courtney: I --

Jax: Really? Was it like the coincidence like the time on the rooftop at the hospital when you got caught in the rainstorm? Because you made a point of confessing that you were with Nikolas, but you never told me that you were meeting him there.

Courtney: Ok, fine, fine. We met that one time, but all the rest were accidents, Jax. They were. If we were sneaking around, don't you think we'd be better at it?

Jax: You know what? I don't know. I really -- I don't know anymore.

Courtney: Jax, I'm not lying. We just keep running into each other -- I mean, at first, at Alcazar's stables the night of the storm and then on the flight. I mean, Jax, you were supposed to be sitting right next to me.

Jax: Wow, so -- so you knew that Nikolas was down here when I called?

Courtney: Yeah.

Jax: You chose not to tell me. Why is that?

Courtney: Because I didn't want to have this fight when there was no reason for it. Look, I swear, Jax -- hey. I love you. You got -- please, just believe me.

Jax: Well, you've made your intentions clear. But what about Nikolas? What does he want out of all this? Or should I go ask him myself?

Nikolas: Wait -- no. No, no.

Emily: Will you get out of the way, Nikolas?

Nikolas: You're not going to run away from this one, Emily!

Emily: Why are you pretending you want to be here with me, Nikolas? You came here to be with Courtney, so be with her!

Nikolas: I love you. Please, we could you just --

Emily: You have a really strange way of showing it.

Nikolas: Don't use this to push me away again, Emily.

Emily: I catch you in a room with Courtney wearing nothing but robes and I'm trying to push you away?

Nikolas: What you think you saw here tonight, you didnít.

Emily: Ok -- Nikolas, please get away from the door. It's making me feel trapped. I want to leave now.

Nikolas: Look, I know you're hurt, ok? But if you'd just -- if you'd please, if you'd just let me explain. Please --

Courtney: Please donít.

Nikolas: Just wait.

Jax: Emily.  Wow, this is -- this is very uncomfortable but, hey, I believe we can all talk about this, right?

Emily: There is nothing to talk about. My marriage is over.

Jax: What did Nikolas tell you?

Emily: It doesn't matter.

Jax: Emily, wait.

Nikolas: No, don't touch her.

Emily: Look, I just -- I just want to get out of here, ok?

Jax: Nikolas admitted to having an affair with my wife, didn't he?

Nikolas: Oh, my --

Emily: He's standing right there. Why don't you ask him?

Jax: No, I need to know what Nikolas told you.

Nikolas: Jax, just leave her alone, will you?

Courtney: Hey!

Nikolas: We don't have to do this, buddy. We don't have to do this.

Jax: Ok, fine.

Nikolas: God!

Courtney: Jax, stop! Come on, what are you doing? Just leave him alone. Please.

Maxie: What does it mean, "You owe me"?

Lucky: The other girls -- they wandered off, but there was no indication that they were raped or assaulted.

Jesse: But we can't assume that nothing happened to them.

Maxie: Well, he's calling all of us now, right?

Jesse: But you're the only one he's talked to so far.

Maxie: Come on, you guys, what does he think that I owe him?

Jesse: You're the only one that didn't take off alone.

Lucky: Where he could get to them, and do whatever.

Jesse: He didn't have a chance to get to you.

Maxie: What does he want from me?

Jesse: This whole thing -- it's about control because as soon as the drugs kick in, you're his.

Lucky: Listen, some of these pervs, they like to take photos, make little movies, dress their girls up like hookers, anything. It's the only way they can feel close to them.

Jesse: But the calls are about keeping you afraid, paranoid.

Lucky: The control thing again.

Maxie: So, whatever this sicko wants, he's going to come after me until he gets it.

[Music plays]

Andrew: Recognize it?

Sam: Salsa?

Andrew: You're so amusing when you play dumb. It's a rumba.

Sam: I knew that.

Andrew: The first song we ever danced to?

Sam: Of course.

Andrew: The rumba -- the dance of love and passion between a man and a woman, a dance of seduction with a fiery woman as the aggressor, the wild-eyed, hungry woman who would have me. Hmm?

Sam: Hmm, mm-hmm. You take the first step, please.

Andrew: That's my Ali -- always full of surprises. You're so tense.

Sam: Let's just start dancing.

Andrew: No wonder you're dancing so badly -- you're as tight as a piano wire. It's your mother, isn't it? She always upsets you.

Sam: Yeah. My -- my mother was always so lost in herself.

Andrew: Hmm. Allegra's lost in greed, that's all. Has nothing to do with you. But make no mistake -- when your mother says she'll kill to have something, she means it.

Ali: I made a deal. Raul gets the other half of my sapphire as soon as he helps us escape. Aren't you going to thank me?

Jason: For what?

Ali: I came back for you and got caught for my trouble.

Jason: Why didn't you leave when you had the chance?

Ali: Well, maybe I'm not as selfish as my mother says I am or maybe I would risk my life just to see her fail or maybe I am a fool for love. However, Sam should not have to marry Andrew even under false pretenses. You have got to make sure you get to her. But promise me, Jason -- don't leave me behind.

Allegra: Oh. This unfortunate alliance stops now.  You're a terrible influence on my daughter. She's already stubborn and willful, and you've made it worse. I'm going to have to separate the two of you for good.

Ali: No, no, no, no, please, please donít. Don't let her take me, please? Help me. Don't!

Allegra: It is so like you to make a scene.

Ali: Don't! Let me go! I've got legs. You should know. You stare at them enough. You, too, Raul.

Allegra: Will you ever learn not to annoy the staff? Take her out of here now.

Ali: No. Jason?

Jason: What are you going to do with her?

Allegra: What any weary mother does with a problem child. I'll gain control and I'll keep it.

[Rumba plays]

Sam: Oops.

Andrew: You play the charade very well.

Sam: And what charade would that be?

Andrew: That you can't dance, my silly girl. I know you're doing it for me.

Sam: Well, there is no fooling you, is there?

Andrew: I fell in love with you dancing, and I'm falling in love yet again. I just hope you're falling, too.

Sam: I have been falling a lot lately, yes.

Andrew: Don't make light.

Sam: I'm not. Some -- most women would be delighted to have you. You are --

Andrew: Extremely wealthy, and that's why your mother wants you to marry me. But don't worry. We're going to throw your mother a curve.

Jason: Come on.

Raul: Uh-uh.

Jason: First, Sam, then Ali.

Maxie: Can I go yet?

Jesse: Just about. I want to run one more thing by you.

Maxie: Cookies?

Jesse: Comfort food. Chocolate chip. I only ate one of them.

Maxie: Did you get them from the bakery across the street?

Jesse: Hey, not all cops gobble doughnuts.

Maxie: Thanks.

Jesse: Sometimes I really like my job.

Maxie: Well, I'm really glad you have this case. It's making me feel safer. I just don't understand why this guy picked me, though. I mean, maybe I should just wear old-lady clothes or hang out at the library or something.

Jesse: No. You're a beautiful young woman. Don't give this guy the power to make you change your life. You did nothing wrong.

Maxie: Except hang out at the Pizza Shack when you told me not to.

Jesse: Hey, we'll catch this guy. Don't worry, he'll make a mistake sooner or later.

Mac: Beaudry volunteered for this case?

Lucky: Yeah, it makes sense. All these girls all college age and Jesse can blend right in on campus. He'll keep an eye on Maxie.

Mac: Yeah. Anything from forensics?

Lucky: They went over all the clothes and they found flecks of lead paint on everything.

Mac: Lead paint? That hasn't been used in almost 30 years.

Lucky: Right, so wherever this guy is dragging these girls is some old place with flecks of paint.

Georgie: Brook, are you sure you don't want anything to eat?

Brook Lynn: Yeah, listen, I'm just on my "I just got my stomach pumped" diet, so I think I'm actually going to go home and crash.

Georgie: That's probably a good idea.

Brook Lynn: Yeah. You know what, it's just my luck, right? I finally get a guy who can't quit calling me and he's a complete wack job.

Georgie: Will you please be careful?

Brook Lynn: I'll be fine. See ya.

Dillon: Yo. I'm going to go grab some stuff for the dorm room. Do you want to come?

Lucas: Hmm. I got to get back to work. I got to finish this paint job before school starts.

Dillon: All right. Hey, do you know what bed you want or do you care?

Lucas: No whatever one you want's fine.

Dillon: Ok.

Lucas: I mean, it's not like if I hook up with a girl I'm going to bring her back to the room anyway, you know?

Dillon: Oh, really?

Lucas: Yeah.

Dillon: When was the last time you hooked up? Sorry. Just -- ok.

Jax: You need to answer a few questions, my friend.

Courtney: Just back off!

Nikolas: We're not sleeping together.

Jax: Well, Emily seems to think otherwise.

Nikolas: Yeah? Well, she's too hurt to listen to anybody right now.

Jax: Well, do you blame her? You just gave her a good reason to leave you.

Courtney: What do you want us to say, Jax?

Jax: I don't know, the truth if that's at all possible.

Nikolas: We felt the people we love slipping away. We ended up spending a lot of time together and we kissed. It won't happen again.

Jax: You kissed him?

Courtney: Yes.

Jax: Wow. What else haven't you told me?

Courtney: Nothing.

Jax: Why are you defending him?

Courtney: Jax, you're -- you're pounding on him. He's not even fighting back. Doesn't that tell you anything?

Jax: Yeah. It tells me I'm too late. Do whatever you want. You will anyway.

Jason: Sam? Sam!

Allegra: You're too late. They've gone.

Sam: Where are you taking me?

Andrew: I'll show you.

Sam: It is beautiful.

Andrew: Your mother has treated you dismally for years, but I will not let her ruin your wedding. I have a priest standing by.

Sam: You want to get married right now?

Andrew: Mm-hmm. Call it a sense of foreboding, but something tragic is going to happen if we don't do it soon.

Sam: Ok, wait a minute, so you want to leave my mother out of this completely?

Andrew: I've made up my mind. This marriage is now or never.

Maxie: Looks like we're too late. Georgie and Dillon already left.

[Phone rings]

Jesse: They need me at the station.

Maxie: Well, go. I'm going to be fine.

Jesse: No, I'm not leaving you here alone. Can I walk you home?

Maxie: No, but thank you. Look, I'm not trying to get spooked by this guy, ok? He could be anyone. He could be the guy that I pass on the street or sit next to on the bus or see in the store.

Jesse: Well, you know, you're probably safer in public, as long as you don't drink from any open containers.

Maxie: Ugh, never again, I promise.

Jesse: Try and avoid situations like the night you were drugged. You know, it was crowded, there's lots of kids and confusion, there's tons of shadows. That's what this guy needs is the shadows to get what he wants.

Maxie: But it could have been a one-shot thing, right? Maybe this guy got his jollies and he forgot all about me.

Jesse: Call me as soon as you get home, ok?

Maxie: I will.

Jesse: Promise?

Jax: I can't believe they put us next to each other. You know, I could -- I could move if you'd like.

Emily: No, it's ok.

Jax: I'm sorry.

Emily: Why?

Jax: Because you don't deserve any of this.

Emily: Hmm. Or maybe I did. You know, Nikolas tried to reconnect after he got out of prison, and I'm the one who changed.

Jax: Yeah, Courtney changed, too, right when the surrogacy started. I mean, she was really positive before. You know, I thought she wanted a child as much as I do. If I would have known she felt so inadequate, maybe I would have handled things differently.

Emily: I kept putting so much distance between me and Nikolas. You know, I convinced myself that we just needed some more time. I shouldn't be surprised by any of this.

Jax: We kind of made the bed for them, didn't we?

Courtney: Maybe you should -- maybe you should try and find Emily.

Nikolas: Why, so she can call me a liar again?

Courtney: This is all my fault.

Nikolas: No, Courtney, you weren't here alone.

Courtney: Yeah, but Nikolas, I shouldn't have been here at all, ok? I wouldn't be if it weren't for my stupid insecurities about the surrogacy.

Nikolas: Stop.

Courtney: What?

Nikolas: Stop. We didn't sleep together, ok?

Courtney: Does it even -- does it matter, really?
