Jax: Oh, come on, Courtney, breathe. Come on. Oh, thank God.
Courtney: Jax -- oh, my God -- the water's too cold. The baby --
Brook Lynn: What, it was you. The whole time, it was you.
Diego: Well, do you know why?
Brook Lynn: Oh, I don't know. Because you're sick. Diego, you are a freak, ok? No, you roofied me. You roofied me and two other girls, and you're letting some innocent guy pay for crimes that you committed.
Diego: Shh. I tried to cover it up. Now it's too late.
Brook Lynn: What are you going to do, Diego, huh? Slip me a roofie? Why don't you take some pictures of me? What are you going to do, play a sick game?
Diego: It wasn't a game. It was payback.
Sam: We need help in here!
Robin: Come back to us, Jason. Please.
Sonny: You kept my secrets. You helped me find my son. You saved my life, and I'll always be grateful to you. I'm just sorry I couldn't save you.
Emily: Sonny, I'm so sorry.
Sonny: It's not your fault. I just, you know, I mean, I knew that -- that we couldn't make it work. I mean, I tried. But if I had let her -- if I had let her go sooner, she'd still be alive.
Brook Lynn: Payback for what, Diego? Look, why did you take those pictures? Why? Why did you give me a roofie, one to Georgie, Maxie, two other girls, and God knows who else, huh? And the phone calls -- that was all you. Everything was you, right?
Diego: Yes, yes, yes, yes. So?
Brook Lynn: I'm calling the cops.
Diego: Whoa, wait. Don't you want to at least hear my motives?
Brook Lynn: You are sick, ok? You're a freak, Diego. There's no other explanation for what you've done.
Diego: I did it for Sage. My cousin. Do you remember her?
Brook Lynn: Wait -- your cousin dies, so you betray your friends? You take naked pictures of us? Oh, yeah, that makes sense.
Diego: No --
Brook Lynn: No, you know what, Diego? You didn't even know her.
Diego: I found her diary. And I read about how you and your little friends just kept her away from the crew. Huh? How you laughed at her, made fun of her ambitions and her wanting to become a star? Then you took her most private thoughts and turned them into a song.
Brook Lynn: You know what? That song was written in honor of your cousin.
Diego: Yes, after you got her killed!
Brook Lynn: Mary Bishop killed Sage.
Diego: Because you left her in the freezer, huh? Do you ever think about that? Huh, Brooke? How she felt? You could have helped, but you didnít.
Brook Lynn: Georgie was wrong to lock Sage in the freezer, ok? But nobody -- nobody knew that there was a killer. Nobody was expecting any of it to happen!
Diego: Nobody cared when she was gone. Nobody. Nobody cared that Sage's life was over. You all just lived your lives, kept going like nothing had happened. It's not fair, is it? Is it?
Brook Lynn: So you just decided to get revenge.
Ric: Hello, Miss Molly.
Alexis: Hey, Molly, say "hey, dad."
Ric: Hi, sweetheart.
Ric: Happy thanksgiving. Are you ready, hmm?
Alexis: We have a lot to be thankful for, huh?
Ric: Yes, we do. I just talked to the chef at the Metro Court. We're going to have turkey with all the trimmings right here --
Ric: In your room.
Alexis: He hasn't got a very good imagination, does he? I have a much better one.
[Monitor flatlines, alarm]
Monica: I'm going to defibrillate. The paddles are set at 300.
Tony: We're clear.
Robin: Hold off.
Sam: What do you mean, hold off? He's dying.
Robin: He needs epinephrine.
Monica: I didn't order an injection.
Tony: On top of the experimental meds?
Monica: No, that's too risky. I'm going to stick to protocol and defib.
Robin: It could trigger another seizure. Just give the epi a chance to work.
Monica: No response.
Sam: It's not working, Monica. Use the paddles.
Monica: We are wasting time here.
Tony: Let's defib.
Robin: Give C.P.R. a few more seconds, please.
Sam: Do it. Please, Monica, do it.
Robin: Another seizure will kill him. Just wait.
Elizabeth: We've got a pulse.
Monica: Oh --
[Monitor alarm stops]
Tony: He's starting to breathe on his own.
Monica: That was close.
Carly: Why is it so terrible to want to be with my family?
Lainey: Oh, come on, Carly. You brought in a makeover team, you escaped from the hospital, and you tried to seduce your ex-husband. That's not the outcome I had in mind.
Carly: But you're impressed, aren't you? Admit it.
Lainey: Carly, I've heard from everyone that you possess incredible focus and drive. And now I've seen it for myself, but we've got to put those qualities to work on your recovery.
Carly: I just want to get back to my family.
Lainey: Well, your family and your life is what landed you here in the first place. I mean, I know it's difficult to be isolated from your life, away from the people you love. But once you've separated yourself from Sonny --
Carly: I am separated from Sonny. That's the problem.
Lainey: I mean an emotional sense. As it is, Sonny rules your entire emotional universe.
Carly: Haven't you ever been in love?
Lainey: Talking about me isn't going to help your recovery.
Carly: Look, I'm better, ok? I'm better. I'm not hiding anymore. I'm not pretending a doll is Michael. I know what's real, ok? I know what's real, and I just want to get back to the life that I want, that's all.
Lainey: Well, if you want to get well and stay well, you must create some boundaries. Carly, what were you like before Sonny? Tell me about some of your other dreams, your other aspirations.
Carly: I came to Port Charles to find my mother. I thought I wanted to know her, and then I wound up destroying her life, just to pay her back for giving me up for adoption when I was a baby.
Lainey: Well, you and Bobbie seem to have a close relationship now.
Carly: Yeah, sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not, yeah. Look, I know my mother loves me, but I also know that I get on her very last nerve. But I also know that I have that effect on a lot of people.
Carly: Except for Jason, yeah. I mean, he gets frustrated with me sometimes. But he gets frustrated with me a lot, and sometimes he yells at me and tells me that my ideas and plans are crazy and stupid and that they're never going to work, and sometimes he's right. But no matter how furious I make him, he never gives up on me. Even when I do get on his last nerve -- and I do -- but, you know, he's always on my side. Always.
Lainey: Would you say he's your closest friend?
Carly: I'd say he's more than that. Yeah, he is the only person in my entire life who has never failed me, and he never will.
Lainey: So you trust Jason?
Lainey: More than Sonny? Carly, you're bright. You are enterprising and resourceful.
Carly: Yeah, I once took on a whole room full of mob guys with a baseball bat.
Lainey: Listen, Carly, you have enormous potential. Maybe you can't see it, but I can.
Lainey: You're an amazing woman, Carly, on your own, without Sonny.
Carly: Thanks for believing in me.
Lainey: I think we had a really good session today.
Lainey: So if you have any other thoughts, write them in your journal and we'll discuss them on the next session.
Carly: Ok, sounds good.
Carly: Hi. It's me. I -- I really need to talk to you.
John: Don't let me interrupt. I just came by to pay my respects.
Sonny: Come on, Durant, you have no respect for Reese.
John: Oh, I did -- until she crawled into bed with you.
Sonny: Do you want some time off? Do you want -- or --
Emily: No, it's ok. I've said goodbye.
Sonny: All right.
Emily: Oh, listen, Sonny, I just need to double-check. Michael wants to take Carly a bunch of thanksgiving stuff. Is that all right?
Sonny: Yeah, yeah, yeah, that's fine.
Sonny: All right.
John: You and your women, huh? Like moths to a flame. My daughter, Reese -- one day they're smart, ambitious women with good lives and good careers, then they circle a little too close to the flame and, poof, explode, a ball of dust, suffocated right before our eyes.
Sonny: I'm not getting what you're trying to say here. You got a point you're going to make?
John: Yeah, I'm asking you, who's circling the flame now? Who's the next pretty little moth on your list? Emily?
Sonny: Emily Quartermaine is not your concern.
John: Isn't she a little well brought up for your taste?
Sonny: If you really want to say goodbye to Reese, go ahead.
John: Oh, I said goodbye to Reese a long time ago -- the day she walked out of the bureau to be with you.
Sonny: Then you really have no point in being here, do you?
John: Yeah, I guess she must have assumed things would be different with her because, you see, Reese, she'd never open the wrong car door, step into the wrong shower. If she just realized that just a -- a second sooner, maybe she'd have taken an earlier train, huh?
Sonny: Yeah, if you had just done your job, Manny Ruiz wouldn't have been set free to, you know, cause a train wreck.
John: Look, let me tell you something, pal. If Reese Marshall had done her job, you'd be in jail.
Sonny: Yeah, well, she made her choice.
John: Yeah, she did, and look what it got her. Don't you ask yourself "Hey, where are all of her colleagues? Where are all of her friends from the academy?" You see, Reese gave up everything in this world to be with you, and in the end, you didn't want her.
Sonny: What happened here, it's a tragedy. A good woman died. You don't care about that? You can't appreciate the loss? She wanted to move on, and now she can't do it. She can't fall in love. She can't have a family.
John: Oh, come on, come on, man. Come on, just admit it, she's just another pretty little moth to you, isn't she, Sonny? Just another one of your dead girlfriends. You destroyed Reese Marshall, but you will not destroy my daughter.
Sonny: Get away from me, punk.
John: Yeah, it figures.
Sonny: I was wondering when you'd show up.
Ric: Same here.
Robin: I realize what just happened was terrifying.
Sam: "Terrifying"? Jason almost died.
Robin: Monica wants to take him off the protocol.
Sam: Your medicine is killing him.
Robin: Jason told me that he wanted to continue the treatment. He told us both.
Sam: He told you that before his heart stopped.
Robin: Listen, if he doesn't complete the treatment, the seizures will come back. The odds are overwhelming.
Sam: Well, maybe the medicine that you gave him is enough already.
Robin: It's not.
Sam: It's not? How do you know? It could be, right? Possibly it could be enough? He could be well again, right?
Robin: Look, I just put Jason through hell, ok? I don't want it to have been for nothing. If he finishes the treatment, there is a chance of a full recovery.
Tony: Ahem -- he's stable, but the medication is too strong for his heart.
Monica: And I want you to take him off it. Now, I'm speaking as his mother and as chief cardiologist of this hospital.
Robin: You understand that he's probably going to die?
Monica: I know that he will definitely die if that medication stops his heart again.
Sam: I agree with Monica.
Robin: It's your decision.
Sam: What do we do now?
Robin: We wait.
Nikolas: What happened?
Jax: She fell into the lake.
Elizabeth: How long has she been unconscious?
Jax: Just a few minutes. She's -- she's in and out.
Elizabeth: Hey, Courtney, do you know where you are?
Courtney: I'm so cold.
Elizabeth: All right --
Courtney: My baby --
Elizabeth: Ok, Exam Room Three, you guys. I'll let you know when you can see her, ok?
Elizabeth: Go, go, go.
Nikolas: What -- how did this happen?
Jax: Ask your grandmother.
Lorenzo: I just came by to invite my son to dinner. I obviously walked in on something.
Brook Lynn: If you don't tell him, I will.
Diego: The police arrested the wrong guy for the stalkings. It was me.
Diego: Yeah. I drugged Brook and Maxie and Georgie, and I framed Dillon and Lucas for it.
Lorenzo: And then you allowed the wrong man to be sent to jail?
Diego: Oh, no, no, I framed him because, you know, Kennyís a dealer, so I figured everyone would believe that.
Lorenzo: Why would you do this?
Diego: To humiliate them, pop. You know, they humiliated Sage. I wanted to do it in a way that no one would get hurt.
Brook Lynn: If you think that drugging and taking naked pictures of girls isn't hurting anybody, Diego, then you are just --
Diego: You shut up, ok? You were scared and embarrassed, that's it.
Brook Lynn: What, am I supposed to thank you for that?
Diego: Pop, listen, you couldn't make them pay for killing Sage, right, but I could, so I did.
Lorenzo: You betrayed your friends, then you sent an innocent main to jail. For what? To avenge your cousin?
Diego: Well, someone had to care that she ever was alive.
Lorenzo: I cared about her!
Diego: They didn't, dad! They didn't! Look -- look, it started out as a payback, ok, but -- but it got out of control. I thought I had it -- I had it covered up, but I didnít. Pop, listen, you got to help me. Please, help me get out of this. Pop --
[Knock on door]
Carly: Come in.
John: Oh, yeah, hey, I picked up your message. I drove straight out here.
John: So what's the problem?
Carly: It's thanksgiving and I'm in the loony bin.
John: So you called me?
Carly: Yeah, mom is working, and I'm not supposed to remember the thanksgivings that I spent with what's-his-name, so how do you spend thanksgiving?
John: I usually work.
Carly: You don't have thanksgiving dinner?
John: Oh, you know, sometimes I order a turkey sandwich.
Carly: Oh. Well, you know what? We could have the boys here. You and me, we could order an old-fashioned turkey. Wouldn't that be great, a family dinner?
John: Carly -- Carly, Carly, if you're trying to play me, you're definitely getting better.
Carly: What are you talking about?
John: Well, the only time you're interested in a father-daughter relationship is when you want something from me.
Carly: You want honesty?
Carly: Ok, I can do that.
John: Can you?
Carly: I hate it here, I want to leave, and I want you to tell the doctors that they should let me go.
John: Carly, I know that you hate it here, but they're just trying to help you.
Carly: I want to go home.
John: And where would that be? Back to Sonnyís.
Carly: My boys live there. I decorated the place. I should get to live there, don't you think?
John: Well, you're right, yes, yes. Michael -- I'm sure he misses you, and Sonny probably does, too, but --
Carly: But what?
John: But Emily seems to be filling that void pretty nicely.
Sam: Ok. Where do I start? Our father who art in heaven -- oh, that's not right.
Alexis: I'm sorry. I -- I was here to see the chaplain, but we can wait outside.
Sam: Oh, no. Please stay.
Alexis: You sure?
Alexis: Thanks. We're ok.
Sam: I'm not big on prayer, but I -- I thought I'd give it a try.
Alexis: Is it Jason?
Sam: Yeah, that new medication isn't working, so Robin had to take him off of it. All we have to do is wait.
Alexis: Hmm. I know how hard it is to wait.
Sam: Molly, isn't it?
Alexis: That's Molly.
Sam: She's beautiful.
Alexis: Thank you. Do you want to hold her?
Alexis: I think it's going to make you feel much better.
Sam: Thank you.
Alexis: Ok, Molly, do your magic stuff. There you go, baby. That's a good girl. A lot of people saved her life -- Jax and Courtney and Robin and Emily. But there was just one person that saved Kristinaís life, and I'm going to be grateful to her for the rest of mine.
Sam: You know, that is over. Alexis, it's over. Kristina is alive and well and healthy and --
Sam: And, you know, that's all that matters in the end, isn't it?
Alexis: I prayed for Kristina right here in this chapel, and you know what? My prayers were answered, and I hope with all of my heart that yours are answered, too.
Jason: Ahem. What happened?
Robin: Your heart stopped. I had to take you off the medication.
Jason: So what happens now?
Robin: That is up to you.
Lorenzo: Yes, I will help you.
Diego: Thank you.
Brook Lynn: Ok, if you think that I am going to stand here and let him get away with this, I have the evidence right here.
Lorenzo: I will take you to the police station and you will tell them what you have done.
Diego: No. No, no, no. Dad, you got to get me out of the country. Why do you want to send me to prison?
Lorenzo: I want you to get help. Now, I know it's a little late in the game, but I am going to try to be a good father. I'm going to help you deal with the consequences of the choices you have made, but I will not let you avoid them, Diego.
Diego: After all you've done? You -- after all the laws you've broken, you want me to turn myself in?
Lorenzo: I will get you good lawyers and I will support you, but I am not going to let you walk away from this. May I have the camera bag and pictures, please?
Brook Lynn: Just in case anything should mysteriously disappear.
Lorenzo: Thank you. Now, are you going to apologize?
Brook Lynn: Don't you dare. You are sick, and I will never, never believe not one other word that ever comes out of your mouth.
Diego: Maybe I was wrong. But so were you.
Brook Lynn: Go to hell.
Sonny: You go ahead. Go -- you go first.
Ric: I'll miss you.
Sonny: You're kidding me. That's it?
Ric: What am I supposed to say, Sonny, huh? Am I supposed to say that I'll regret the one night that we spent together, because it cost her more than it cost me? I'm not going to disrespect her memory that much by being a hypocrite. She deserved better. You know what, Sonny? She loved you. She didn't love me. So why don't you go ahead, ok?
Sonny: I'll go ahead, but as soon as you leave.
Carly: Emily is helping Sonny with Michael and Morgan.
John: Yeah. She's doing a pretty good job, too.
Carly: Michael loves her. He loves her, and they need the same person in there day after day. This has nothing to do with Sonny.
John: Well, why doesn't he just hire another nanny?
Carly: Because that wouldn't be fair to Leticia.
John: Oh --
Carly: And Emily is related to them. We don't have to pay her to care about them.
John: Carly, are you telling me seriously this does not bother you?
Carly: Why do you think something's going on with them?
John: All right, look, I'm sorry I said anything. I shouldn't have said anything. It's probably nothing, especially at a time like this. It was wrong, and I'm sorry.
Carly: I really need to get home. I need to get home.
John: Why don't you come and live with me for a while?
Carly: No, no, I don't trust you. You're going to use me against Sonny.
John: Why are you so determined to stay loyal to this son of a --
Carly: Because I love him, so why don't you accept that?
John: Why can't you accept the fact that he is bad for you, that every time you get around him he causes you pain -- when Michael was gone, when he shut you out to live with his girlfriend? Carly, the reason you're in here, the reason you had a nervous breakdown is because of Sonny.
Carly: I'm better now.
John: No, you're not better, and you're not going to get better if you go back to Sonny.
Carly: I really want to see my boys, ok? I want to see my boys.
John: Ok, ok. Yeah? You do? Let me ask you a question. Has Sonny even asked you to come back yet?
Carly: No --
Carly: But he will. I mean --
John: Look, I'm sorry. I'm sorry I -- I've upset you.
Carly: I don't know why I called you. You know, I should have called --
John: Would you please at least think about moving back in with me?
Carly: No, I wonít. But if you -- I mean, if you see anything going on between Sonny and Emily, will you tell me, please?
John: Carly, I told you, I'm sorry I said that. There is nothing going on. I'm sure you have nothing to worry about. Just -- just forget about it. Have a happy thanksgiving. Just relax.
Carly: "Just relax." God. All right, come on.
[Knock on door]
Emily: Come on.
Carly: Hey! Oh, my gosh! Look at you -- oh, look at you!
Michael: Happy thanksgiving, mom.
Carly: Happy thanksgiving!
Sonny: Um -- I am s-- so, so sorry. I -- I canít.
Ric: That's it, Sonny?
Sonny: You know what? With you here, I canít. I got nothing to say.
Courtney: Do you think that Helena knows what happened before, you know, when I jumped in the water and miscarried?
Nikolas: Well, she -- she is very thorough, so --
Courtney: You know, it was freezing. You know, when I woke up, my baby was gone. I just --
Nikolas: No -- hey, listen, it won't be like before, ok?
Courtney: I should never have been on the docks alone. Helena's been threatening all of us.
Nikolas: Just don't worry about that now. Are you in any pain? You ok?
Courtney: No, no. It doesn't mean anything, though, if I was in that water too long.
Jax: Now, listen -- hey, you're not going to lose this baby.
Nikolas: Tell us what happened.
Courtney: I -- when Jax left, I went to call you. Helena must have come up behind me.
Jax: You didn't see her?
Courtney: No, but I know it was her. She put something over my face and -- and I blacked out. Next thing I knew, I was coughing up water and it was freezing. Jax, if you hadn't been there, I don't know --
Dr. Meadows: How did you end up in the water?
Nikolas: Someone pushed her.
Courtney: Will I lose the baby?
Dr. Meadows: You seem fine, but we'll know more after the exam.
Nikolas: Thank you for getting here so quickly.
Dr. Meadows: You've been keeping me far too busy.
Jax: I'll just be outside in the hall. Listen, if you're planning to stay in Courtneyís life, you owe it to her to put a leash on your grandmother. She just confronted me on the docks.
Nikolas: You knew she was on the pier?
Jax: Look, don't make this my fault, ok? She's your grandmother, and she will do anything to keep you away from Courtney.
Nikolas: No, I realize that, Jax.
Jax: And what are you planning to do about it?
Emily: Carly seems a lot better.
Lainey: Carly's dependence on Sonny isn't healthy. Unless she can let go of it, she's headed for another breakdown.
Emily: Is there anything I can do to help?
Lainey: I wouldn't plan on leaving the Corinthos house anytime soon. Carly's not making any progress. Sonny and the boys are going to need you.
Ric: Never had a chance, did you? Came to town and everybody suspected you. But you kept trying, right? Kept making sacrifices. It's not fair. Look, I know it's not enough. But you helped, and you were a true friend and I'm forever grateful.
Robin: It's ok.
[Door opens and closes]
Robin: That wasn't necessary!
Jason: Yeah, if you believe that, you're as brain damaged as I am!
Robin: Oh, really? You think that? You feel comfortable making that judgment? Well, you shouldn't, because you don't know anything about me. You don't know what I need or what I want, and you sure as hell don't know what I have to live with!
Emily: Hi. Morgan forgot his hat.
Carly: Yeah. I'm glad you came back for it. You and I need to have a little talk.
Courtney: Are you sure I'm all right?
Dr. Meadows: You're fine. But try to avoid falling into icy water.
Courtney: Ugh -- I'm just lucky that Jax was close by.
Dr. Meadows: I want you to take it easy. You're strong and you're healthy, but I want you to avoid stress.
Jax: You can't blame Courtney for what happened.
Dr. Meadows: No, of course not. But I am advising you to take appropriate precautions and try to get as much rest as possible.
Dr. Meadows: Ok.
Jax: You know, I -- I should. Helena approached me; she showed up at your place, she warned Nikolas.
Courtney: I promise I'll be more careful, ok?
Jax: You know, here's what I don't understand. You walked away from Jason because of the dangerous lifestyle, you still mourn the baby you lost to that life, yet you're so willing to expose our child to risk.
Courtney: Jax, I was alone on the pier for, like, two seconds.
Jax: I know, but Helena, she -- she won't give up, ok? As long as you're with Nikolas, you and the baby, you're both at risk.
Nikolas: Here you go. Ahem. Well, no wonder you hate to fly commercial. That's all right. Maybe you'll have a smooth landing -- in hell. Sweet dreams, grandmother.
Minister: In this holy baptism, I welcome you, Molly Lansing, into the holy church and pray that God's grace keeps you safe forever in the Kingdom of God. I baptize you, Molly Lansing, in the name of the father and the son and the Holy Spirit.
Alexis: Happy thanksgiving.
Ric: Thank you.
Alexis: Thank you.
Ric: Thank you.
Ric: She's a cute girl, huh?
Carly: You're doing a great job taking care of Michael and Morgan.
Emily: I'm happy to help.
Carly: Sonny couldn't have gotten through any of this without you, so I just want to say thanks.
Emily: You're welcome, Carly. I've got to get the kids home.
Carly: You know, it's a funny thing about Sonny. He is the easiest man to fall in love with.
Robin: Jason, I'm trying to tell you that I'm H.I.V.-positive.
Robin: Jason, it's ok. Shh. It's all right. It's ok.
>> Next week on "General Hospital" --
Brook Lynn: He took him to the police station.
Maxie: But he's just going to protect his son.
Diego: Don't send me to prison.
Lorenzo: I have to do something.
Carly: No chance you're falling in love with Sonny?
Robin: It's not what you think. He has no idea what he's doing.
Sam: But you do? I want you out of here now.
Robin: He kissed me.
Sonny: You didn't fight it.
