General Hospital Transcript Monday 10/31/05
Proofread by Brian
Ric: I'm not going to be written off like one of your employees.
Sonny: Don't push it.
Ric: Reese and I made a mistake, all right? We had a moment of weakness, Sonny. It wasn't malicious and it wasn't intended to punish you.
Sonny: You finished?
Ric: No, I'm not finished, Sonny! I'm your brother and you have to deal with me!
Jason: How'd you get this number?
Robin: Tony Jones. I know about your condition, Jason. I guess you don't remember who I am, but I specialize in this kind of brain trauma.
Jason: No, I know who you are, Robin.
Elizabeth: I feel like a fairy-tale princess.
Emily: Except this magic doesn't end at midnight, Elizabeth. This magic will follow you and Lucky for the rest of your lives.
Elizabeth: I hope you know how much I love you.
Emily: Ok, no crying.
Lesley Lu: Ready, big sister?
Elizabeth: Ready, little sis.
Jax: Courtney, look, I know something's wrong. Just tell me what it is.
Courtney: Jax, not now.
Jax: I don't want you to start lying to me again. I thought we were past that.
Courtney: Fine. I'm pregnant and you're the father.
["Wedding march" plays]
Minister: Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of God to witness and bless the joining of this man and this woman in holy matrimony. The union of husband and wife is intended by God for their mutual joy, for the help and comfort given to each other in prosperity and adversity, and, when it is his will, for the procreation of children and their nurture. Into this union, Lucas and Elizabeth now come to be joined. If there is any of you who has just cause why these two should not be lawfully wed, speak now or forever hold your peace. Elizabeth Imogene Webber, will you have this man to be your husband, to live together in the covenant of marriage? Will you love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, in sickness and in health, as long as you both shall live?
Elizabeth: I will.
Minister: Lucas Lorenzo Spencer Jr., will you take this woman to be your wife, to live together with her in the covenant of marriage? Will you love her, comfort her, honor and keep her, in sickness and in health, and forsaking all others be faithful unto her as long as you both shall live?
Lucky: I will.
Minister: Elizabeth and Lucky have chosen to share their own vows, spoken to each other and for all of us, spoken from their hearts.
Lucky: You're just beautiful. I married you once when we were teenagers in an empty church, with only God and each other as witnesses. We were unable to keep the promises that we made back then, but we'll be able to keep them tonight. Because the time that we spent apart has only made the love that we feel even more precious. Elizabeth, I promise to give you the best of myself, to be your friend, your lover, and your partner. I promise to be the best father I can to Cameron and to all the children that we will have together. I promise to remember the girl that you were and honor the woman you are. I loved you then and I love you now. I'll love you always.
Robin: I have your latest test results, Jason. I think that the research that I'm doing could really help you.
Jason: Wait a minute. I never gave Dr. Jones permission to share my records with you or anyone.
Robin: Jason, your condition is very rare. There aren't a lot of options. Tony knew about my research and he thought that you might be a candidate for what I was working on.
Jason: I don't want your help.
Robin: Jason, your life is at stake.
Jason: Do not call me again.
Sam: Robin called you from Paris?
Jason: I don't want her help.
Ric: Reese never really stood a chance with you from day one, right? She's always going to come in second to everybody else in your life, especially Carly.
Sonny: The timing was bad. We met when my life was falling apart. So what?
Ric: Sonny, you and Reese hadn't even slept together when she and I met up at the Metro Court.
Sonny: Oh, wow! That changes everything, Ric!
Ric: Oh, come on, you told Reese that a relationship was impossible! She said she was leaving town and you didn't stop her! You tell me, where's the betrayal there? Sonny, by definition, a betrayal is something someone does deliberately to hurt you. Reese laid down her life for you, for your kids, for Carly!
Sonny: Listen to you, defending Reese like she defends you! Why can't you just both admit how you feel about each other?
Ric: She and I are friends!
Sonny: Ah --
Ric: And neither of us wants to lose you over a mistake, Sonny, that we made months ago.
Sonny: It's not the sex. It's the lie. It proves what I had felt from the beginning. I cannot trust you.
Elizabeth: You were my first love, the brave and handsome boy who rescued me. Thank you for loving me that much to make me whole again. We took our separate journeys to live and to learn. I guess we had to grow up a little bit before we could find our way back together. But I know that all the mistakes I made and the difficulties, they were all leading up to this very moment. Lucky, I promise I will never take you or our love for granted. I promise I will always stand by your side, support you, make you laugh, and cherish this amazing gift that I have been given, the gift of loving you as long as we both shall live.
Minister: Who has the rings? Bless these rings as a symbol of the vows by which this man and this woman have bound themselves to each other. Lucky?
Lucky: I give you this ring as a symbol of my love, with all that I am and all that I have.
Elizabeth: I give you this ring as a symbol of my love, with all that I am and all that I have.
Minister: Now that Elizabeth and Lucky have given themselves to each other by solemn vows and the joining of hands and the giving and receiving of rings, I pronounce them husband and wife. Those whom God hath joined together let no one put asunder. You may kiss your bride.
Ric: It'd be so convenient for you to just make me disappear, Sonny, or pretend that I never was. But I am family; I'm blood, all right? You can't --
Sonny: Blood means nothing, Ric. Michael's not related to me by blood, but it doesn't make him any less my son. Jason's my brother, not by blood, but he's more brother than you'll ever be.
Ric: Oh, right. Right, because he's so loyal, right, because he never questions you. Let me ask you a question, Sonny. Did Jason remember to ask you permission to sleep with Sam after you were through with her?
Sonny: He never lied to me, Ric.
Ric: Neither did I.
Sonny: Yeah, oh, yeah? You never -- you never lied, right? Every day that passed and you didn't tell me you slept with Reese was a lie!
Ric: Look, Sonny, we were starting to get beyond the past, ok? We were starting to -- we were starting to behave like brothers, ok? It was going good, and then this -- this thing happened. Look, I wanted to tell you, but I knew -- I knew how you'd react! You'd just look for an excuse to -- to say that you can't trust me! God forbid anybody should ever be redeemed in your eyes. It is so easy for you, Sonny, to go back to hating me.
Sonny: Hating you requires effort, Ric. I don't want to have anything to do with you. Now, you go back to your pregnant wife or Reese. Doesn't matter to me.
Ric: You miserable son of a --
Sonny: Ok, I -- I am done with both of you!
Ric: You deserve whatever you get.
Sonny: Is Carly all right?
Dr. Kim: Unfortunately, there's been no change.
Sonny: Is she frightened? I mean, does she ask about me?
Dr. Kim: She seems content, calm. She enjoys her quiet time in the garden, feeds herself, and sleeps well. I'm afraid if Carly saw you now, it would be disruptive.
Sonny: All right. Well, I'll check in with you in a couple days. Thank you, doctor, for everything and -- Oh, man.
Robin: Sonny, it's Robin.
Robin: I need your help. Actually, Jason does. Has Tony Jones told you about the research that I've been doing?
Sonny: Sam McCall mentioned it.
Robin: Tony Jones sent me Jasonís information to see if he might be a candidate for the treatments that I've developed. And I called Jason to tell him that I could help him, but he wasn't interested.
Sonny: Well, it's his decision.
Robin: Sonny, I don't think you realize what's at stake here. If Jason doesn't get treatment soon, he could die.
Jason: Nobody knows the side effects of Robin's treatment. I could end up worse off than the surgery.
Sam: Ok, so then we'll deal with it, Jason, that's what we'll do.
Jason: Sam, Sam, Sam. You don't get it. I won't be pathetic, even for you.
Sam: You'd rather be dead?
Jason: No. But I am not afraid to die. I am afraid to look in your face and see pity.
Sam: How can you be so selfish?
Jason: You would survive without me.
Sam: I want my reason to get up in the morning. I want to know that someone out there in this world can look into my heart and like what they see. You made me believe that we would have a future together. Don't you dare -- don't you dare give up on me without a fight!
Jason: I wonít. But I have to keep you safe. I need to keep Manny away from you. I got to find out where his plane went down.
Nikolas: All right, everyone, if you don't mind, please gather around. First, I just want to thank you all for making this such a great surprise for Elizabeth and Lucky. Most of you probably have absolutely no idea why we chose to have the wedding right here in the ballroom of Wyndermere, but there's a bit of a story behind it. Some years ago, we held a Bacchanalia Ball here. Everyone say "Bacchanalia."
Nikolas: Bacchanalia. Thank you. It was in honor of my late Uncle Stefanís engagement, and for those of you who were there, oh, what a party it was, and we'll just leave it at that. But what you may not know is that Elizabeth and Lucky were falling in love for the very first time that night. Well, they watched the entire party through the window outside in the garden and, I don't know, I guess once they witnessed the festivities in here, they just got swept up in the romance of it all, because they shared their very first dance outside in that garden.
Nikolas: And for years, Emily -- Emily? -- Emily and I have had both the privilege and honor to listen to the myriad of complaints as to how they were always on the outside looking in, both figuratively and literally. On the occasion of my brother's wedding to his beautiful, beautiful bride, we thought it was time that they come inside from the garden. So without further ado, I present to you for their very first dance as husband and wife, Lucky and Elizabeth Spencer.
[Classical music plays]
Elizabeth: Oh, God.
Georgie: Can you imagine, Dillon? They were younger than us when they fell in love. I'm not talking about marriage or anything. I'm just saying --
Dillon: I know what you're saying. Sometimes first love lasts forever.
Lainey: This is the kind of wedding girls dream about.
Justus: It almost makes you believe in happily-ever-after.
Lainey: And Prince Charming.
Justus: Ah. Now, that -- that's a tall order.
Lainey: I'm not talking about a one-dimensional cartoon character with a cleft chin. I'm talking about the real thing -- a man with a heart and a brain, genuine compassion and, of course, a killer dancer.
Justus: Now, that -- that is a dream worth holding on to.
Jax: You ok?
Alexis: My feet have turned into watermelons. How about you after what Courtney told you?
Jax: Well, you know, I haven't had a chance to talk to her yet. I really don't know what to make of it.
Alexis: Yes, you do.
Skye: It was a beautiful wedding, Luke. Lucky is happy beyond words. Try to be happy for him.
Luke: This is me happy. I'm happy. It looks like Lucky is going to have what Laura always wanted but could never have with me -- a normal life -- whatever that is -- a little white picket fence, babies, grandbabies. His mother would be very pleased.
Emily: Wait for a signal from me to bring out the cake. All right.
Alan: Em? Hi.
Alan: I can't get over how comfortable you are here.
Emily: Yeah, it was my home.
Alan: Well, technically, it still is. I was watching you and Nikolas during the ceremony. You're both still so much in love.
Emily: Well, considering that you were so dead set against my marriage, dad, you sure are pushing hard.
Alan: I never objected to Nikolas, it was his family, and I wasn't wrong. But the truth is, Em, you belong here with your husband.
Nikolas: Courtney, Courtney? Hey.
Nikolas: It's ok. This is an emotional day for everyone, I know. Are you ok?
Courtney: Yeah. No, the wedding is so beautiful because you and Emily did such a wonderful job. You should be proud.
Nikolas: What's going on? Tell me, what's going on?
Courtney: I got the D.N.A. results back. It's Jaxís baby.
Nikolas: Yeah. Well, we knew there was a chance that it wasn't going to be mine, so --
Courtney: I wanted it to be.
Nikolas: Yeah, so did I. I didn't know how much until this moment. But it doesn't change anything, ok? I still want to be with you. I want to be as much of a father to this child as I can, ok?
Jax: Thanks, anyway, but I'll be the father to my child.
Elizabeth: I got butterflies, just like the first time we danced.
Luke: Congratulations, my son.
Lucky: Thank you.
Luke: There never was a more beautiful bride.
Elizabeth: Thank you.
Luke: As you both know, I sort of lost my faith in the institution of marriage, but I am counting on you to change my mind.
Elizabeth: Well, then I will make it my life's work.
Luke: Well, you've made a damn good start of it tonight.
Brook Lynn: Help, police.
Brook Lynn: Hey, will you dance with me so I don't get stuck with my father?
Jesse: Wow, sounds like an emergency. Try not to judge me. I stink.
Brook Lynn: I doubt that. Come on.
Lucas: Let's just pretend you got this from me and not your date. Some birthday, huh?
Maxie: You remembered? God, you're probably the only one.
Lucas: Yeah, well, underneath this lone-wolf facade beats the heart of a -- you know what? Come on. Let's dance to celebrate your birthday.
Brook Lynn: Sometimes I still get nightmares because Dillon doesn't really think you guys caught the right guy.
Jesse: Yeah. Listen, I have something I have to take care of, but thank you very much for the dance.
Brook Lynn: Ok.
Ric: I'm sorry I missed the ceremony.
Ric: Congratulations, Elizabeth. You deserve every happiness. You always did. I'm just sorry that I threw our chance away. You'd think I would've learned by now that there's absolutely no return on this ridiculous obsession with my brother, right? Uh, sorry. You look -- you look beautiful.
Elizabeth: Hey, are you ok?
Ric: Yeah. Me? I'm great.
Lesley Lu: Elizabeth?
Lesley Lu: I'm supposed to tell you it's time to throw the bouquet. Just don't throw that thing anywhere near me.
Elizabeth: Got it. I got to go.
Ric: Go ahead.
Maxie: This is -- this is absurd.
Georgie: Oh, come on. Will you just chill out and try to enjoy yourself?
Elizabeth: Ok, girls, are you ready? Yeah? Ok, heads up. One, two, three!
Sonny: I got a call from Robin Scorpio telling me that if Jason doesn't get treatment, he's going to die.
Sam: I know.
Sonny: This thing in his brain is progressing and surgery could be risky, so --
Sam: I know. I know, Sonny, he's getting worse every day. Tony gave him the medication and he's just taking it, and he pops it like candy and -- you know, I begged and I yelled and I threatened and -- I'm out of ideas. I -- I'm afraid to lose him.
Sonny: Here, here. It's all right. No, hey, I mean, me, too. Every once in a while, I like to mix it up.
Maxie: I'm -- I'm floored. When I got your note to meet you here, I thought it was about the stalker.
Jesse: No, Maxie. It's all about you.
Jesse: It's a special day for an incredibly beautiful, smart, and stubborn girl who fell into my world and turned it upside down.
Maxie: Wait, back up a second. Did you just say "beautiful"?
Jesse: You'd better blow these out before the place burns down.
Maxie: I think I can do that. There.
Jesse: Did you make a wish?
Maxie: What do you think?
Singer: Rest assured no matter what you're not alone 'cause I know
Jax: I'd like to speak to my wife -- alone.
Nikolas: Let's ask Courtney what she wants.
Courtney: It's ok.
Jax: So how did this miracle happen, and why did you choose to tell me now?
Courtney: Obviously, I didn't know that I was pregnant until after I was already with Nikolas. Yeah, Jax, I knew that there was a slight chance you were the father, but I didn't want to get your hopes up and then tell you that the baby wasn't yours. I mean, I know how much this means to you.
Jax: Yeah, it means everything. I can't -- I can't believe you're pregnant. Wow. Courtney, I want to -- I want to raise this child together as husband and wife.
Courtney: No. We canít.
Nikolas: I'm ok. It's all right, it's all right. I think I'll just watch where I'm going rather than just --
Emily: What happened?
Nikolas: Courtney got the paternity test back. Jax is the father.
[Cheers and applause]
Lucky: I think I'm going to like being married.
Bobbie: Ok, now, all the single men, time to catch the garter.
Justus: We're right here.
Bobbie: Where's my brother? Luke?
Tracy: He's taken.
Mac: That's it. Right here.
[Polka music plays]
Luke: What am I supposed to do with this?
Alice: Well, you're supposed to wear it around your arm and dance with me. It's tradition.
Tracy: It's demeaning.
Luke: It's a polka!
Alexis: There you are.
Ric: Hey. I was looking for you.
Alexis: Oh, I'm not that difficult to spot these days.
Alexis: You ok?
Ric: Yeah. Shouldn't I be?
Alexis: You were gone a long time.
Ric: Oh, I -- I kind of had a busy day. You know, I -- I had to go see my brother -- excuse me, my ex-employer. See, I've been fired by Sonny himself. So much for fraternal bonds, right?
Jason: Did you say something to make her cry?
Sonny: Can you give us a second?
Jason: What's going on?
Sonny: Robin called. She called as my friend. She said to me that if you do not get treatment, you could die. That's why Sam was crying, not because of anything I did to her. Why are you being so selfish?
Luke: Well, hiya, princess. You got a hug for your old man? Guess not. First time in heels must be rough on your feet.
Lesley Lu: It's nothing new. I've been wearing them since I was 12.
Luke: You have?
Lesley Lu: You know you missed my birthday again? Do you even know which one?
Lesley Lu: At least you don't pretend I matter. I'm glad you decided to come today for Lucky's sake. Dad? I'm 17.
Tracy: Well. I'm awfully glad you're an absentee father. Otherwise, I would have to worry that you might invite that nasty little hooch to come live with us.
Ric: You tried to warn me, Alexis. You said that Sonny didn't care about anybody but himself. I mean, doesn't it make you feel good to know that you were right?
Alexis: Not much.
Ric: I mean, you said he wouldn't even forgive a mistake. And here we are, right, unforgiven. Mike, he's your son. I mean, is there ever any kind of secret that Sonny doesn't consider a betrayal?
Mike: If there is, I've never seen it.
Mike: You know, however, I think a hot pot of coffee might do you some good right about now.
Alexis: I think that's a really good idea. Thank you, Mike.
Mike: All right.
Ric: See that? Look at that, he's -- isn't it amazing? Mike is just such a -- just a nice, easygoing guy, and his kid is just this -- this uptight, self-righteous, judgmental -- but hey, you should be happy, Alexis. I no longer have a dangerous job. I no longer have a dangerous brother. I am without both.
Alexis: You knew what your brother was like, you knew what you were getting into and, from the looks of things, it doesn't appear that you have any intention of getting out of it, even with that last insult, whatever the hell that was.
Ric: You have no idea.
Alexis: No, no, but I can guarantee that you'll be going back there asking for his forgiveness and the rest of us will be paying the price.
Ric: Ok, here we go. Yeah, I would really appreciate a little compassion and understanding, Alexis, not an "I told you so." Besides, he's not coming back from this betrayal. No, it wasn't all about the lie, definitely, it was about the sex.
Alexis: Yeah, you might want to clarify that.
Ric: Sure. Sure, you know what? Have it your way. No more lies. No more lies. No more secrets. You know the reason that Sonny decided to slam the door in my face one more time? My great betrayal -- I slept with Reese!
Sonny: You're not afraid to die. I know that. You never have been. But there are, you know, plenty of people who love you, who are terrified to lose you. My whole family, your sister, Emily, Sam. I need you. You're my friend.
Jason: I'm not going to --
Sonny: You're not going to take that away, are you?
Jason: I'm not going to live in a wheelchair for the rest of my life or get shipped off to some institution. And I'm not going to make Sam take care of me because I'm not capable of taking care of myself.
Sonny: You think I don't know about pride? You can't just throw your life away out of arrogance. You got a woman who would die to save you if she could. You don't spit on that. Now, I'm telling you right now, for her, you have to do whatever it is you need to do to stay alive.
Jason: Are you leaving?
Robin: Robin Scorpio.
Man: Dr. Scorpio, Davis Powell. We met after your speech in Brussels.
Robin: Oh, Davis, how are you?
Davis: Hate to call last-minute like this, but we're getting ready for the AIDS conference in New York City. One of our speakers fell out. Is there any chance you can fill in?
Robin: The conference is this week, isn't it?
Davis: We need you by Wednesday.
Robin: Then you can count on it. I wanted to go to New York anyway. There's someone I need to see there.
Courtney: We'll raise this baby as mother and father, but not as a couple.
Jax: Come on, we've already come so far in making the peace with each other.
Courtney: But as friends. Ok, I just -- I don't think that we were meant for anything more.
Jax: We're going to be parents now. We at least owe it to this child to give it a try.
Courtney: Jax, what kind of marriage can we have if there isn't genuine love between us? I don't want to hurt you any more than I already have. I'm in love with Nikolas. I'm sorry, Jax.
Jax: No, I'm sorry for you because you don't realize that Nikolas is still hung up on Emily.
Lucky: It's chocolate, Elizabethís favorite.
Audrey: Ah, yes, well, that's the key to a successful marriage -- indulge each other's whims.
Elizabeth: Go ahead, grab a piece.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Man: May I help you?
Manny: Yes, I believe you can.
Alexis: Get off the table, Ric! This show is over.
Lucky: To my brother, Nikolas.
Elizabeth: And my dear friend Emily.
All: Hear, hear.
Sam: I am trying to save you.
Jason: You act like this treatment is some magic cure.
