General Hospital Transcript Tuesday 11/1/05
Proofread by Brian
Jason: You're leaving?
Sam: I'm -- I am trying to save you.
Ric: No more secrets, all right? No more lies. Let's get it all out on the table. You know, the -- the big excuse that Sonny had for slamming the door in my face once again -- my great betrayal -- I slept with Reese!
Alexis: Well, thank you for sharing, counselor, because we've all been dying to know the secrets of your love life. Um -- strictly speaking for myself, I don't really care who you've slept with.
Lucky: To Elizabeth. You never gave up. You've given me the honor of being a father to your child. You're the love of my life, tonight and forever.
All: Hear, hear.
Alan: Nicely done.
Lesley: As always.
Elizabeth: And to Lucky, my first and last love. You never left my heart, and you never will. Some of my happiest days have been spent with you, and even in my darkest nights I knew you were out there somewhere, holding on, loving me, just as I love you.
Alan: Nice. Very nice. Beautiful.
Lucky: And -- to the only two people who could've created this wedding full of magic and love --
Elizabeth: And romance.
Lucky: And romance. To my brother, Nikolas --
Elizabeth: And my dear friend Emily.
All: Hear, hear.
Alexis: What's a wedding without a -- a drama, a meltdown, a drunken episode? I'm really embarrassed. You've lost your audience, Ric. The word "stampede" comes to mind.
Ned: Hey, Ric, come on. Let's go see if we can round up some coffee. Come on. Get off the table.
Alexis: He's giving you a graceful out, Ric. Take it.
Ric: No, I like it up here.
Ned: Unless you start tap-dancing, just get off the damn table.
Alexis: Get off the damn table, Ric! The show is over.
Ric: Yeah, that's right, make jokes.
Ned: Hey, let's just go in and dance, shall we? Come on. Come on.
Ric: Ah, sure, go ahead, Alexis, run away. Let somebody else rescue you. She'll only turn against them in the end. Oh, wait, I'm sorry -- she already pulled that on you, didn't she, Ned?
Alexis: My husband and I are going to finish this tonight, apparently. It's ok.
Ric: Sure, go ahead. She doesn't need you at the moment.
Alexis: What the hell is wrong with you?
Ric: Nothing. I'm just too tired and too drunk to keep lying.
Alexis: At least you got your priorities straight. You didn't cheat on your wife; you cheated on Sonny, who's obviously the only person who really matters to you.
Ric: And that's what gets you, isn't it, Alexis? The fact that any family that I might have will always include Sonny.
Nikolas: Tonight has been a long, long time coming, but we all knew eventually it would. You've defied the odds, survived adversity, and inspired each and every one of us. Somehow you've always been able to find your way back to one another by having the faith and the courage to follow your hearts. Hear, hear.
All: Hear, hear
Lesley Lu: If they say "All for one and one for all," I'm going to puke.
Emily: Now, your next surprise is the honeymoon suite at the Metro Court. And Elizabeth rode a train into Port Charles, didn't you?
Emily: And you met Lucky a couple of days later?
Lucky: Mm-hmm. That's back when she was wild, right, Audrey?
Audrey: Well, maybe a little.
Emily: So it only seems right that a train should carry you into your new life with Lucky.
Nikolas: That's right, because tomorrow an antique train is taking the two of you into Manhattan.
Elizabeth: I have to work.
Alan: No, you donít.
Nikolas: No, you both have two weeks off, the both of you. I've already arranged it, so --
Elizabeth: Two weeks?
Elizabeth: Oh, my God.
Lucky: Hear, hear!
Alan: Two weeks!
Tracy: Oh, would you stop twirling that thing?
Luke: What's the matter, spanky buns? Does it remind you of our own precious nuptials?
Tracy: I don't remember our nuptials. Care to remind me?
Luke: Sure. They were spectacular. A very colorful shindig. Hell of a lot more fun than this.
Tracy: I think it was a drunken escapade.
Luke: Exactly. Come, wife, we'll peruse the pate.
Emily: You have to get changed.
Elizabeth: How do I thank you?
Emily: Just be happy.
Elizabeth: I am. I am.
Lucky: What can I say? Thanks.
Nikolas: No problem.
Lucky: Something's been bugging you all night.
Nikolas: No, nothing at all. I'm having a great time.
Lucky: You know what? Don't lie to your brother on his wedding day. So what's going on?
Nikolas: Courtney's pregnant, Jax is the father. Cheers.
Sam: Ok, you don't like your options. I understand that, but if you don't get help, you are going to die.
Jason: But you act like Robin's treatment is some magic cure. Sam, it's experimental. It may not work. We have no idea what it would do to me. I'd rather die than live -- live a half life blind or paralyzed or even --
Sam: I will do whatever it takes to save you. Even if you don't like it.
Jason: I don't want you traveling alone. Ok? It's too dangerous. I am sure that Manny survived that crash. He could be anywhere.
Doctor: May I help you?
Manny: Yes, I believe you can.
Sam: The last time you went after Manny, you almost had a seizure. Jason, you could've gotten us both killed.
Jason: Sam, if I go into the hospital and I take these tests or I do whatever I have to do, I'm going to leave you completely vulnerable.
Sam: Vulnerable? I'm vulnerable now. I know that's not what you want to hear, but it's the truth. Manny knows it. He knows your condition, and it's only a matter of time before he comes after you.
Jason: Why -- why are you so convinced Robin's medicine will work? The other medicine didnít. Sometimes there is no cure.
Jason: Yeah? All right, thanks.
Sam: What happened?
Jason: One of Sonny's people thinks he saw Manny at -- at Roselawn. That's where Carly is.
Manny: I'm new to the area, and I need to be close to a dying relative.
Manny: Oh, Oncidium papilio. Such fragile necks. I understand the facility is looking for a new gardener.
Doctor: Aren't you supposed to be in bed, Willy?
Manny: Flowers, you know, can be very soothing.
Doctor: Contact the personnel office in the morning. Maybe the job's still open.
Elizabeth: Oh. Thank you.
Emily: You're welcome.
Elizabeth: It must've been pretty awful thinking that Courtney was pregnant with Nikolas' baby.
Emily: Yeah, it hurt at first. Then I adjusted.
Elizabeth: Well, now you don't have to adjust. Because Jax is the father.
Emily: Are you ok?
Elizabeth: Yeah, yeah. It's just ironic. I guess I didn't have to go through the pregnancy or the miscarriage if Jax and Courtney just gave it a little time.
Emily: Yeah, Jax and Courtney aren't big on patience. They want what they want when the want it.
Elizabeth: Maybe they belong together, which would leave Nikolas free to go back to you.
Emily: Nikolas and I are over. He's with Courtney now. Jax may be the father, but Nikolas is going to help her raise the baby. There's no room for me in Nikolas' life.
Nikolas: The D.N.A. test came back just before the wedding, and Courtney and I -- we just assumed that I would be the father.
Lucky: What do you want to do now?
Nikolas: I want to stay with Courtney, that's what I want to do.
Lucky: Isn't she still married to Jax?
Nikolas: Yes, she is, technically. Look, I realize that Jax isn't just going to stand aside, divorce Courtney, and allow me to raise his child. I get that. Things are going to be difficult, Lucky, but I just -- you know, I can't just --
Lucky: Jax -- Jax got possessive during the surrogacy. I don't want to think about what he's going to be like now.
Nikolas: Yeah, I know. A new baby doesn't always bring out the best in people.
Alexis: Coffee doesn't make you sober; it just makes you a wide-awake drunk.
Ric: Thank you for the words of wisdom, but I'm going to make sure that you get home safe.
Alexis: I don't want you to take me home. Why would I want you to take me home?
Ric: Well, you know what? Despite the fact that we have a back-and-forth, on-again-off-again relationship, Alexis, the fact that I have left you many times, you've pushed me away many times, I'm still going to make sure that you get home safely.
Alexis: Thanks, Ric. I have this uncanny knack of devoting myself to all the wrong men.
Alexis: First Sonny and now you. I told you -- I told you that this wouldn't work, and you convinced me that it would. I love you. But I don't want you to take me home. Because I begged you already to come home, and you didnít. You chose your brother, and now he's dumped you.
Ric: Just like you said he would, right?
Alexis: He's a user, Ric.
Ric: We're all users, Alexis!
Alexis: I thought that your priorities would change when this baby came, but I was stupid. Because I don't think that's ever going to happen.
Ric: What are you waiting for, Alexis? It's just me. I am going to care and love that child no matter what. But I'm not sure that I can be what you or anybody wants or needs me to be. Maybe I never will.
Emily: Nikolas and I had so much fun planning the wedding. It was just like old times.
Lucky: I guess it was a little subtle, but Elizabeth and I thought if we got you and Emily involved in our wedding, that --
Nikolas: What? We'd fall in love again?
Lucky: That you'd realize you never fell out of love in the first place.
Elizabeth: Nikolas barely took his eyes off you the entire night.
Emily: We were your best people, Elizabeth. It was our job to present a united front. You know, Nikolas loves Courtney and they're looking forward to the baby together.
Elizabeth: But the baby isn't even his.
Emily: This is not a discussion that we should be having right after you and Lucky got married. But if you need me to convince you, I'll say it again. Nikolas and I agreed to a divorce. We loved each other very deeply, but we just couldn't make our marriage work.
Elizabeth: Or maybe you're both making a mistake, and compounding it by staying apart.
Nikolas: You knew all this, Lucky. Emily and I -- we're hurting each other. That's why we split up in the first place.
Lucky: Well, maybe you and Emily are -- are through the worst of it. Jax will want Courtney back now.
Nikolas: What if I don't want to give her back?
Lucky: Are you really going to throw away what you and Emily had? Forever?
Elizabeth: I don't think you're ready to give up on Nikolas.
Emily: I already have.
Elizabeth: Well, are you sure? Because if there's any hope at all, you need to tell him. He's not obligated to Courtney anymore.
Emily: It won't make any difference, Elizabeth. Nikolas has made up his mind.
Nikolas: I can't just turn my back on Courtney, Lucky. I'm in love with her, and Jax isnít. He only wants her for the child, Lucky, that's it.
Emily: My life works fine without Nikolas, Elizabeth. I feel wanted, needed. It's exactly the way I want.
Elizabeth: Yeah, but can't you feel this way with Nikolas?
Emily: Not anymore, Elizabeth. Too much has happened. You know, Nikolas and I -- we're fine as friends. That's it.
Elizabeth: Mm-hmm. Do you remember -- remember when I used to say the same thing about me and Lucky? Moving on is good, Em, but sometimes going back can be even better.
Emily: Not anymore. Do you honestly believe that Courtney would go back to Jax after what he did?
Nikolas: Look, I don't -- I don't love Courtney any less for being pregnant with Jaxís baby. But at the end of the day, Lucky, I'm afraid. I'm afraid that I'll lose her.
Reese: Must've been some wedding.
Ric: Yeah. I missed most of it.
Reese: You went to see Sonny, didn't you?
Ric: Yeah, and he shut me out completely.
Reese: I'm sorry, Ric.
Ric: Yeah, so am I. I went to the wedding, I got sloshed and jumped up on a table and announced to everybody that you and I had slept together.
Reese: Oh, my God, you didnít.
Ric: Yeah, it's been a bad day.
Reese: Oh. All right, just in case I have any career left here in Port Charles to salvage -- how many people heard this declaration?
Ric: Oh, come on. More than five, less than twenty.
Ric: Alexis tried to make a joke out of the whole thing.
Reese: Oh, Alexis.
Ric: You know, isn't it funny how Sonny brings out the worst in both of us? Alexis thinks that I slept with you because you were with Sonny.
Reese: What do you think?
Ric: I think it was about the two of us needing each other. But covering it up -- that was about protecting whatever relationships we wanted to have with Sonny.
Reese: And now we've both lost him for good.
Jason: Excuse me. We need to speak to a doctor about Carly Alcazar.
Dr. Kim: I'm her psychiatrist.
Jason: Ok, good. Well, we're here on behalf of Sonny Corinthos. Have you seen this man?
Dr. Kim: No.
Jason: Are you sure? He's an enemy of Sonny's and we believe he may try to hurt Carly.
Dr. Kim: I haven't seen this man, and I can guarantee you, he hasn't gotten near Carly.
Jason: I would like to still check on her.
Dr. Kim: We usually only allow scheduled visits with family.
Sam: Well, Jasonís practically family, so I think Carly would really appreciate --
Jason: You know what? I don't even need to speak to her. I just need to look in and make sure she's ok.
Dr. Kim: All right. But don't expect too much. Carly's still extremely fragile.
Jason: Get away from that door. Turn around. Slow.
Dr. Kim: Willy. Get back to bed immediately.
Willy: You like my hat and coat? A guy gave it to me.
Jason: Did you see the guy?
Willy: You're scaring me. Why -- why are you so mean?
Dr. Kim: You both need to leave now. Firearms are not allowed at Roselawn.
Jason: I'm sorry for scaring your patient, ok, but this guy Manny is a murderer. He wants to hurt Sonny; he's going to go after Carly to do it. I don't want to cause any more trouble. Just let me look in and see if she's ok.
Dr. Kim: Try not to upset her.
Sam: I'm going to go look around, ok?
Bobbie: Everybody? The newlyweds are about ready to leave, so --
Dillon: Oh, hey, let me get some of that.
Audrey: Has everybody got some?
Monica: I think so.
Alan: Yes, I have.
Nikolas: Ladies and gentlemen, may I have your attention, please?
Nikolas: Thank you. It is now time for Mr. and Mrs. Lucky Spencer to come into the world as husband and wife so, please, come on in.
Lucky: We want to thank you all for being here.
Elizabeth: You truly have given us the wedding of our dreams.
Emily: And it's not over yet. Your carriage awaits.
Nikolas: Go ahead, go on, get on there!
Monica: I am so proud of you.
Alan: Your grandmother would've loved every second of this.
Emily: Lila was the ultimate blend of hopeless romantic and true realist. She knew how to love and forgive and how to make a marriage work.
Monica: Yeah, well, not all marriages are fairy tales. We know. But maybe Lucky and Elizabethís will be, thanks to you.
Alan: Seeing as you and Nikolas could work such magic for your friends, maybe you could do it for yourself.
Monica: Alan. I just want you to be happy.
Mike: Honey? Honey, look, why don't I take you home. It's been a stressful evening and you've come through it like a trouper, but enough is enough.
Courtney: Dad, I'm hanging in there, and I need to spend some time --
Mike: Jax, look, can't you give her a chance to catch her breath for one second?
Courtney: Dad, it's ok. It's ok.
Mike: Are you sure?
Jax: Our divorce papers arrived as I was leaving my office.
Courtney: Well, you didn't bring them here, did you?
Jax: My plan was to sign them tonight. Celebrate this marriage, kiss ours goodbye, part as friends. But now there's just no way I can do that.
Skye: Oh. Well, I must say, you are the perfect date.
Lorenzo: Date doesn't have to be over. Any interest in joining me on a trip to Europe in the next couple of days?
Skye: Europe sounds wonderful.
Lorenzo: Well, great. Can you be ready tomorrow morning?
Lorenzo: And why not? I think you know we'd have fun together.
Skye: Oh, no doubt we would have fun together -- until I saw that faraway look in your eye and I realized that you're still in love with Carly.
Lorenzo: Uh-huh. Well, Carly haunts me just like Luke haunts you. Why don't we accept that and move on?
Ric: So, what are you going to do next?
Reese: Well, there's not much left for me here in Port Charles. I guess you and I need to talk about what we're going to do with our partnership.
Ric: Well, I can't leave town.
Reese: Because of the baby.
Ric: Yeah, I know, and Alexis -- she's -- she's already overdue. I mean, Alexis may hate me, but I am going to be here for when this baby is born.
Reese: I wouldn't expect any less of you.
Alexis: This is perfect.
Ric: What's the matter? Why are you here? Is everything ok?
Alexis: The baby's fine. You and I are another story. That's my husband, Phil.
Lucky: Can you believe this place?
Elizabeth: No. We have some pretty amazing friends. They gave us the perfect wedding.
Lucky: It's not over yet.
Skye: You know what? I -- I can't do this.
Lorenzo: Why not?
Skye: It's happening too fast, ok? We're both still hung up on other people.
Lorenzo: So what's wrong with consoling each other?
Skye: It's not that simple!
Lorenzo: It can be. If you choose to come with me to Europe for a couple of days, I'll make sure you forget all about what's-his-name.
Tracy: You're a fool.
Skye: How long have you been standing there?
Tracy: Long enough to hear you turn down the offer of a lifetime.
Skye: It's none of your business.
Tracy: You are not the light of Lukeís life. He has a soul mate. You're not it.
Skye: Well, neither are you. Luke loves Laura.
Tracy: But we're married, and that's not about to change. I'd hate to see you waste your life waiting for a divorce that's not going to happen.
Skye: You just want to throw me at Lorenzo because you're afraid that one day Lukeís going to wake up screaming and running to the Dominican Republic so he can get himself unshackled from you.
Tracy: Skye, Luke and I are perfect for each other. We've both given up on love. You havenít. You can't unhook your heart. You feel everything. Guess what -- Lorenzoís the same. In fact, he's capable of great love and incredible loyalty. Why don't you go with him, see where it takes you? I wouldn't push him away for something Luke is never going to give you.
Lesley Lu: How drunk are you?
Luke: I'm not drunk. Well, I might be a little sad -- sad your mother isn't here. She loves big weddings. You know that. She'd have been very proud of Lucky tonight.
Lesley Lu: You're just getting sentimental because your real kid's moving on.
Luke: What do you mean, "real kid"?
Lesley Lu: A real kid is one you spend time with. You call her; you know how old she is.
Luke: Lulu, I know how old you are.
Lesley Lu: Because I told you an hour ago! But Lucky got years with you and mom. He got a family. But look on the bright side -- at least I'm not ice fishing.
Luke: You loved ice fishing.
Lesley Lu: I was willing to freeze my butt off and kill innocent fish for the privilege of being with you. And you know what? It wasn't worth it.
Luke: Well, you sure as hell fooled me, sweet pea.
Lesley Lu: Lucky is married now. He's going to have a family. He learned that from you and mom.
Lesley Lu: You know what I learned?
Luke: Why don't you tell me?
Lesley Lu: How to say goodbye. See you.
Luke: You know, that daughter of mine -- she might turn out ok, after all.
Skye: What about you?
Luke: Me? You ever get the feeling that you've died and nobody bothered to tell you?
Nikolas: Hi. Well, we pulled off the impossible once again, didn't we?
Emily: That's what fairy tales are all about.
Nikolas: Hmm. It was great, wasn't it?
Emily: Yeah. I guess all fairy tales have to come to an end.
Nikolas: Yeah, I guess so.
Emily: I have to go pay the caterer.
Nikolas: Ok, ok.
Jax: If you want to go offshore and buy a quickie divorce, I won't contest it. But I will not deliberately rip apart this child's family.
Courtney: Well, wasn't that your plan at one time, Jax?
Jax: You know, I regret how we both handled the surrogacy. But we've been given another chance, Courtney, and I want to take that.
Courtney: Oh, Jax. I'm with Nikolas now. Ok, look, you're going to find someone new and you're going to want to be with them. It's just our marriage -- it didn't work for a ton of reasons. I think that the best thing that we can do is just let go.
Jax: We canít just think about ourselves anymore. We have to consider our child. Just think about that, ok?
Alexis: I'm leaving town.
Ric: You're not supposed to travel.
Alexis: I am taking a three-hour trip to New York on a train. Dr. Meadows has already set me up with a hospital on the Upper East Side. I'll stay there until the baby is born, and Viola is going to bring up Kristina in a few days.
Ric: Why not leave Kristina here?
Alexis: I forgot a detail. I'm not coming back.
Luke: I do better with scotch than champagne. I do better with a blues club than a casino. And I do better with torrid affairs than marriage. God, I hate this place. I should've burned it down years ago.
Skye: I saw how glad Lucky was that you were here tonight.
Luke: Yeah, he was, wasn't he? Maybe I'm just getting swept up in the pageantry of the moment, but I have a feeling he's got a real chance of making his marriage work. Of course, there's no guarantees. You know, a marriage license doesn't come with a guarantee. And whatever comes, they'll have to hope their love is strong enough to see them through the rough patches. But I don't envy them. I'm glad that part of my life is over.
Skye: Luke, I know you're missing Laura tonight, and I know that I can never take her place, but I think you need a ride home and I think I can manage that much.
Luke: Thank you, Blaze. But I don't really need anything right now.
Singer: Softly like a whisper hold me in your arms everything fades but you and me and you know I'd cross the stars for your love and I think you would go that far but there's nowhere else I'd rather be right now than where you are
Singer: Moonlight in between us quiet lingering there's nowhere else I'd rather be right now than where you are
Nikolas: Jax must be excited about the baby.
Courtney: Yeah, he is.
Nikolas: Making all kinds of plans, I'm sure.
Courtney: Yeah, it's kind of scary.
Courtney: He doesn't want to sign the divorce papers, says that he wants to try again. Jax wants to make everything all right, says that a child deserves to be with both their parents.
Nikolas: Yeah, well, I can't really argue that.
Courtney: Do you think that I am awful and selfish because I wish you were the father?
Nikolas: No. No, because I feel the same way. But, hey, it just didn't work out that way, did it? Well, listen, I want you to know that whatever choice you make for you and your baby, I'll support that.
Courtney: You know, Jax and I wanted a child. Now, despite everything, we're having one.
Courtney: You know, I just -- I feel like I owe my child the chance to be with me and -- and its father.
Nikolas: You mean you think you owe Jax another chance?
Jax: You throw an extraordinary wedding.
Emily: Thank you. Jax, I know about the baby. I've -- I've known for a while, but I just found out that you're the father tonight.
Jax: Yeah, I guess we're all a little bit surprised. You know, my parents stayed married through some pretty tough times. I want to do the same. I want to try to win Courtney back, try to be the best father and husband I can.
Emily: It won't be easy.
Jax: I've always appreciated a challenge. I'm sure it's possible. You believe in forgiveness, don't you?
Ric: You can't just disappear with Kristina and our child.
Alexis: I won't disappear. But I will ensure that my child is born in a safe and a calm environment, and then I'll decide what to do after that. But I won't be living here any longer. So we can decide about visitation arrangements after.
Ric: Ok, even if I agree, Sonny's not going to.
Alexis: I think Sonny's got enough problems of his own right now. He's not going to want to go into court.
Ric: Nobody wants to go into court, Alexis, but I am going to stay in this child's life.
Alexis: I hope you do. I really hope you do. So we'll talk about those details later.
Ric: Ok, well, you want to maybe even tell me where the hospital is, at least? Alexis?
Jason: Hey. Any sign of Manny?
Sam: No, nothing, and I'm thinking the guard could've made a mistake.
Jason: No, I don't think so.
Sam: Manny's plane crashed. The police think he's dead. Maybe they're right.
Jason: I just -- I want to walk around just to be sure.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Man: Our next speaker is Dr. Robin Scorpio.
Sam: We're going to New York to ask Robin to treat you.
Jason: The only place I'm going is to search for Manny.
Sonny: Is Carly all right?
Dr. Kim: Unfortunately, she's taken a turn for the worse.
Nikolas: You need to pack. Train leaves at 6:00, got to be onboard by 5:30.
