Sonny: Hey.

Emily: I realized that I left my brush downstairs.

Sonny: Yeah, I was going to get my watch. I left it down --

Emily: Yeah. Ok, I'll just grab my robe. Uh --

Sonny: Let me guess --

Emily: Oh, God.

Sonny: You're locked out?

Emily: Uh, it looks like it.

Carly: You still don't get the hell you unleashed, do you? Everyone suffered -- Michael, Jason, even A.J. -- all because you took it upon your sanctimonious self to tell a truth that wasn't yours to tell, all because you were jealous. You were afraid I was going to have the family that you couldn't have with Jason because you're H.I.V.-positive. There, I said it. You know what, Robin? You may fool the rest of the world, inspire pity and admiration. But I know you for the snake that you are.

Robin: And I know you for the hateful person that you are. No wonder Sonny won't take you back.

Carly: You know nothing about me and Sonny, ok? Thank God you were on the other side of the world.

Robin: Oh, please, it's not hard to figure out. Sonny got fed up with your insanity. So if you think that this new, improved version of Carly that you're trying to sell is going to fly, you are in for a rude awakening.

Alexis: I know you're disappointed about not being able to go to Michael’s birthday party. I'm really sorry. I didn't know, so I scheduled -- I scheduled us to go to the Natural History Museum. Mommy already bought the tickets. I think it'll be fun -- you and Molly and Ric and mommy, we're all going to go. You can get Michael a present. You can even pick it out for him all by yourself.

Kristina: Why don't you like my brother?

Alexis: Honey, I do like your brother. I like him very much.

Kristina: Then why don't you let me go to Michael’s birthday party?

Ric: Yeah, mommy. Why won't you let her go to her brother's birthday party?

Courtney: I didn't misunderstand. I was just watching you and Jax a few minutes ago on the fourth floor. You were definitely arguing.

Dr. Meadows: I'm surprised I have to say this to you, Courtney, but your personal problems with Jax are no concern of mine, and I resent being put in the middle. First there's Jax badgering me about an update on your health. And now you, interrogating me about my conversation with Jax.

Courtney: You're right. Dr. Meadows, I'm sorry.

Dr. Meadows: Listen, if something is bothering you, take it up with Jax.

Courtney: Of course. I apologize. I do, I -- ok, I'm really embarrassed now, so I'm just going to slink away.

[Car starts, accelerates]

Dr. Meadows: Aah!

Courtney: Dr. Meadows? Dr. Meadows, are you all right? Somebody help!

Maxie: Dr. Meadows. What happened?

Courtney: She was hit by a car.

Jesse: Is she breathing?

Maxie: I'll get a doctor.

Courtney: Very shallow. God. Dr. Meadows?

Jesse: Look, did you see anything?

Courtney: No, I heard it. I turned around, she was on the ground, I -- God, it just happened so fast. I came over here and they took off.

Jesse: A hit-and-run, these lights -- it doesn't track.

Courtney: What are you saying? What --

Jesse: It's not like the driver couldn't see her. It makes it look intentional. What is it?

Emily: You know, why is this happening? I know I didn't lock it.

Sonny: You know what, this thing jams all the time, and I got to get it fixed.

Emily: Hey, look, maybe you should call Max. He's kind of an all-around guy, isn't he?

Sonny: You want to explain to Max why we're standing here half-naked?

Emily: Yeah, you're right, absolutely not. Ok, here we go.

[Emily groans]

Sonny: Hey, if you do that it could break, so -- wait, hold on. What you got to do is you got to sometimes jam it to the -- you know --

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Michael: Hey, what's going on?

Elizabeth: Just hang in there. Tony's in the E.R. waiting to fix you up, ok? Let's get her inside.

Jesse: Ok, so far I've got nothing, but I'll call in when that changes.

Courtney: God.

Jesse: Hey. You're the closest thing I've got to an eyewitness. I need your statement.

Courtney: I told you everything that I know.

Jesse: Look, I'm hoping you can set the scene for me -- why you were here, if you saw Dr. Meadows prior to the incident, that kind of thing.

Courtney: She's my ob-gyn. I needed to see her and she wasn't in her office so I -- I came outside to find her.

Jesse: Did you speak?

Courtney: Briefly, yeah.

Jesse: What about?

Courtney: I'm pregnant.

Jesse: All right, what happened next?

Courtney: Well, I -- I turned around to go inside and --

Jesse: You went inside? But you had gotten what you came here for. How come you weren't headed towards your car?

Courtney: I, um -- I left my keys in the ladies' room. That's where I was before I went to Dr. Meadows' office. Look, I'm really sorry, I'm -- I'm a little thrown by all this. You know, I -- can I go, please? I've told you everything I know.

Jesse: Sure, sure. If you happen to remember something else, just give me a call.

Courtney: Yeah, I'll call.

Jesse: Great.  Are you mad?

Maxie: Why would I be mad? You didn't mow someone down and then take off.

Jesse: No, but we were going out to dinner, and instead we walk right into a crime scene.

Maxie: Jesse, my dad's the police commissioner. I've learned by now criminals don't have any respect for plans.

Jesse: Hey, I promise as soon as forensics and an investigation team gets here, I'm all yours.

Maxie: It's just crazy, you know? What kind of person would do something like this?

Bartender: Mr. Jacks. I didn't see you come in.

Jax: That's because I came in the back way. That's really none of your business.

Bartender: Sorry. What can I get you?

Jax: Tequila.  Another one. You know what? Just leave the bottle.

Alexis: It's kind of complicated. It's kind of grown-up stuff.

Ric: It's kind of a little boy's birthday party.

Alexis: Well, you're being a big help.

Ric: I just don't think it's a good idea to imply that there's something wrong with Kristina’s brother.

Alexis: You're right. I don't mean to do that, sweetie. There's nothing wrong with Michael. I like Michael very much. Mommy has a little bit of a problem with Michael’s mother.

Ric: Oh, uh -- you know, I'll take this one just for a second. You know what, sweetie? I think -- I think the reason that mommy doesn't want you to go to the party is because she thinks that you're just not going to have any fun, you know? Michael's mother probably invited a bunch of kids his own age, probably boys. She just thinks you're going to be, you know, sad and -- and alone, you know?

Alexis: That works.

Ric: Yeah.

Alexis: Now do you understand?

Kristina: No.

Alexis: That went well.

Carly: What's it like up there?

Robin: Hmm?

Carly: On that lofty moral perch where you look down your nose and pass judgment on the rest of us, huh? You would've thought somewhere along the line after everything you've been through, you could pick up some empathy and compassion. Humility, maybe?

Robin: You have the nerve to spout words at me like "empathy" and "compassion," which you've never shown to anyone. Oh, I'm sorry -- unless it suited your own agenda.

Carly: How Jason could've spent more than five minutes in your miserable company is beyond me.

Robin: Well, he did. He did, ok, no matter how much you hate it.

Carly: Get out! Go! Take your miserable butt back to Paris, please. Robin, you're finished in this town. Guess what -- your miracle drug didn't work, and you know what? You probably knew that it wouldn’t. You played on Jason because he was vulnerable. Yeah. You thought, "Hey, if he feels obligated to me, I can slither my way back into his life."

Robin: Just shut up.

Carly: You have nothing else to offer him, certainly not the sex he was used to having --

Patrick: Hey, hey, hey --

Carly: I will kill you! I will kill --

Patrick: Ok, enough.

Carly: No, it's not enough! It is just starting! Come on, Robin! Come on!

Dillon: You know, I sure hope all this was worth it because you missed out on about -- on about five hours of cinematic brilliance.

Lulu: Well, I thought you went to a triple feature.

Dillon: Yeah. We left early. Apparently, foreign films are kind of an acquired taste. I probably should've eased Georgie into it instead of using the submersion method, yeah.

Lulu: You made Georgie read subtitles for half the afternoon?

Dillon: Well, yeah. They're all Oscar contenders.

Lulu: And you wonder why she has a prison pen pal.

Dillon: Oh, wow! Hello. I'm sorry, did I miss something? You, me -- truce, Kelly’s? Does that not ring a bell?

Lulu: Oh, right, right, yeah. No, I think my blood sugar's still a little low.

Dillon: I told you Alice is the key to getting Cook to give you any food in this house. You'll get it down in a few weeks, I promise.

Lulu: Well, what do you expect me to do in the meantime?

Dillon: Volunteer.

Lulu: Ok, yeah. I don't see how wearing an ugly blue uniform and pushing some book cart is going to stop my hunger pains.

Dillon: All right, think big picture, all right? You help me with my mom; I help you with Alice.

Lulu: No, forget it. I am not going to give up my free time because your mom wants me out of the way.

Dillon: Are you telling me you would pass up the opportunity to make some sick kid's life just a little bit better?

Lulu: Ok, do I look like the friendly type, Dillon? No. So I don't know how many ways I'm going to say it -- I don't do hospitals!

Dillon: Yes, but you did do a hospital on Christmas, and I got to tell you, volunteer blue is a whole lot better than elf green, and you don't have to wear the funny shoes.

Lulu: Ok, no, I did the elf thing for one reason and one reason only. My dad was missing my mom and I thought it would cheer him up, but I am not interested in helping anyone else.

Dillon: Ok. How about helping yourself? You want five minutes away from me, right? Wouldn't that be fantastic? Well, you get to have that if you volunteer.

Lulu: Ok, no, that helps you, not me. While you get your free time with Georgie, I'm stuck doing bedpan duty? No, thanks.

Dillon: Where are you -- oh, ok, all right. Wait a second, listen to me. All I want is to make things easier for everybody involved. And the attitude thing is not helping me, so I'll tell you what -- you know, you either go down to the hospital and you talk to Elizabeth or you starve. That's -- that's it. Your choice.

Lulu: Ok, fine. I will talk to Elizabeth after you talk to Alice.

Dillon: Deal.

Courtney: Is Dr. Meadows ok?

Monica: Well, she sustained severe blunt force trauma to her head and to her abdomen.

Courtney: Oh, my God. Yeah, but she's going to be all right?

Monica: At this point, we don't know.

Courtney: I feel so terrible about all this.

Elizabeth: Unfortunately, we get a lot of hit-and-runs. I mean, people just panic and they take off, and since this one happened right in front of the hospital, I'm sure the person thought Dr. Meadows would be fine.

Courtney: I feel like I'm going to faint.

Elizabeth: Oh, it's ok. Here, sit down. Sit down. Just take a deep breath. Can I get you some water or

Courtney: If I hadn't -- Dr. Meadows would've just gone straight to her car. If I hadn't stopped her, she'd be fine.

Elizabeth: Hey, don't go there, ok? This had nothing to do with you. Whatever happens to Dr. Meadows is on whoever was driving that car.

[Jax growls]

Jax: Did you lose something?

Ric: Oh, yeah.

Alexis: Thanks for scooping her up.

Jax: No problem.

Ric: Yeah. Kristina's a little put-out that she can't go to a birthday party.

Alexis: Well, it's not just any party.

Ric: Michael's party.

Jax: Oh, I see. Well, you know what I'm thinking? Would you like a surprise? You see, I've been working with the chef on a new dessert. It doesn't even have a name yet. Would you like to try it?

Kristina: Could I, mommy?

Alexis: Yes, you can.

Jax: Ok. Got to warn you, though --

Alexis: Thank you.

Jax: It's extremely chocolaty.

Alexis: Mmm, yum.

[Phone rings]

Kristina: I like chocolaty.

Jax: Oh, well, that's good. Oh, there goes my phone. Excuse me for one second. This is Jax.

Courtney: Where are you?

Jax: At the Metro Court, just about to have a little dessert with a lovely young lady.

Courtney: Ok, now, don't leave.

Jax: Is something wrong?

Courtney: Just stay there. I'm on my way.

Alexis: Courtney's very lucky. Jax is going to make an amazing father.

Ric: Yeah, well, chocolate cures all ills.

Alexis: Mm-hmm.

Ric: But let's get back to the parenting at this particular table. Alexis, I know that you can't stomach Carly, but Kristina -- she can't understand that. All she thinks is that you don't like Michael.

Alexis: Well, I don't want her to think that. That's not true. I like Michael very much. It's not his fault that he's spoiled rotten -- and Morgan, too. When she's over there, everybody's just running amok. There's no boundaries, they're playing with expensive, unsuitable toys, the TV is on all the time playing things that it shouldn't be playing --

Ric: Mm-hmm.

Alexis: And I -- I'm worried that she's going to come home and teach Molly when she's older.

Ric: Well, I think you're blowing things a little bit out of proportion here.

Alexis: Really?

Ric: Yeah.

Alexis: This morning Kristina was flicking Molly in the head.

Ric: Hey.

Alexis: I finally told her to stop, she wouldn't listen, so she took Kristina by the hand and took her into her room, and Kristina said, "Let go of my hand or I'll kill you." Now, where did she learn that?

Ric: At home?

Sonny: You know how the door sticks sometimes?

Michael: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: We were just trying to open it.

Michael: Ok.

Sonny: Ok.

Michael: You have to know how to open it just right. Um, why are you wearing towels?

Sonny: Well, we took showers. Well, we came out of our own rooms. I forgot my watch downstairs. She forgot -- what did you forget?

Emily: Oh, I forgot my brush.

Sonny: She forgot her brush.

Michael: Ok.

Emily: Yeah.

Sonny: Thanks, buddy.

Emily: You're a lifesaver, Michael.

Michael: Yeah.

Emily: So, did you see how he did that? It was a jiggle and a twist. We should remember that in case it ever happens again -- not that it ever would. I'm cold. Are you cold? I'm going to go in now. Good night.

Patrick: Ok, I think you guys have both said enough.

Carly: Get out of here. Get the hell out before I call security, or I'll throw you out myself!

Robin: Look, I apologize for hitting you.

Carly: No, I don't want your apology. You want to be sorry for something, you can be sorry for ruining my little boy's life just to get back at me.

Robin: God, I can't deal with you or who I become when I'm around you.

Carly: Goodbye! Do yourself a favor. Do not fall for the "wounded little girl" act, ok? Robin Scorpio is not worth your time or energy.

Patrick: Why, because she's H.I.V.-positive?

Carly: No, because she's a bitch.

Patrick: I think it takes one to know one.

Lulu: I already let you guys guilt me into wearing an elf costume for the Hospital Christmas Party. That's as far as my public service goes, especially when you're throwing bedpans in the mix.

Dillon: I'm begging you, just one thing.

Lulu: Why?

Dillon: Just do this --

Lulu: Because Tracy says so? No, thank you. She's your mom, not mine.

Dillon: Yeah, ok, fine. Get yourself into more trouble with the family.

Lulu: Your family, not mine.

Dillon: All right, ok, then do it for me. It'll be a huge favor.

Lulu: You just don't want to be stuck babysitting me. It's ok. I'm used to not being wanted.

Dillon: Hey, I'm sorry. Can we not turn this into a pity party for poor, abandoned Lulu? Sometimes it's ok to help people who need stuff.

Lulu: Oh, well, I don't see you signing up.

Dillon: This isn't about me, Lulu.

Lulu: Yes, it is about you, appeasing your mother so that she'll start paying for your dorm room again.

Dillon: Yes, yes, it is, ok? And you should be, like, right onboard with that because it means we don't have to be Siamese twins. Now, you can't convince me that you like that idea any more than I do.

Elizabeth: Hey. I hear you're going to be our newest volunteer.

Lulu: I'd rather stick forks in my eyes.

Kristina: Thank you very much.

Jax: Ooh, that looks good. Yeah.

Ric: You know, just to quote somebody we all know and love, you -- "If you don't put the soap back in the dish, and I will hurt you. You eat the last of the ice cream, and I promise you that'll be the last thing that you ever do," and of course, the ever popular, you know, "If you don't put the cap back on the toothpaste, then I'm going to --"

Alexis: "I'll kill you."

Ric: "Kill you," right.

Alexis: I was just kidding.

Ric: I know that.

Alexis: I didn't know she heard me. All right. So she's saddled with a horrible mother.

Ric: No, Alexis, that's not what I'm saying, ok? You're missing the point. You're not a horrible mother. You say things or don't say things sometimes and, you know, kids pick up on it. I just think -- I think it's our job as parents to communicate to the kids, help them to differentiate everything. And you do have tunnel vision when it comes to Sonny. I do, too, all right? But I just don't think that all of the evil in the world springs from my brother and those he hangs out with. Bottom line is it's a kid's party.

Jax: Yeah? Is it good? Hmm?

Kristina: Mmm.

[Jax laughs]

Courtney: I need to speak to you.

Jax: You want to say hello to Kristina?

Courtney: Now, Jax.

Ric: Look, ultimately it's your decision, ok? You're her mother, you know best. I'm just trying to get you to lighten up a little bit, you know? On everybody, but mostly on yourself because if you don't, you know you're going to set the stage for later on and it's -- there'll be no peace at all. Sonny's going to do everything that he can to try to integrate Kristina into his life, and that eventually you know is going to involve Carly. Now, short of another custody battle, Alexis, I don't think there's much we can do.

Alexis: You're -- you're right. Now, you know, when Kristina’s over there, Carly is going to badmouth me, and especially now that she thinks I'm defending Manny to get back at Sonny.

Ric: You know, I think even Carly has enough sense to not badmouth you in front of your own daughter.

Alexis: I think you're being naive. Carly has despised me for a long time because I had the audacity to be attracted to Sonny. That is a sure-fire way to end up at the top of her hit list.

[Knock on door]

Emily: Michael? Hi. I -- I saw your light. You mind if I come in for a second? I just wanted to explain what happened.

Michael: When?

Emily: Uh, tonight, before. See, the heat went out in the guesthouse, so I tried to build a fire.

Michael: Oh, no.

Emily: Yeah -- no, exactly. I'm the world's worst fire starter, so I wound up covered in soot.

Michael: I wish I had seen that.

Emily: Oh, trust me, you'd still be laughing. Anyway, the hot water was out, too, so I came over to take a shower. And your dad invited me to spend the night, so I accepted and I showered. But I forgot my brush in the bathroom, so I -- I wrapped myself up in the towel I had and headed for the bathroom at the same time that your dad came out of his room in his own towel after taking his own shower on the way downstairs.

Michael: I know. That's what he said.

Emily: Ok, I just wanted to make sure that you didn't have any questions.

Michael: Like what kind of questions?

Emily: You know what? Just forget I brought it up. I'm, you know, just being silly.

Michael: Ok.

Emily: Ok. Don't stay up too late, all right

Michael: I won’t.

Emily: Yeah.

Michael: Em?

Emily: Uh-huh?

Michael: In the morning, can we have waffles?

Emily: Yeah -- waffles. Ok.

Sonny: Ooh. You're still up?

Emily: Yeah, there's a lot of that going around. I saw Michael’s light was still on, so I went in to explain what happened earlier, and I think I ended up -- I don't know -- more confused than he was.

Sonny: Well, that doesn't surprise me. I mean, you know, Michael -- as smart as Michael is, there's no way he can tell that there's anything going on between us.

Patrick: I have to admit, I'm a little shocked by the way you talked to Robin, considering she is H.I.V.-positive.

Carly: Ok, what? So you think I should have handled her with kid gloves? I'm sorry, I don't do politically correct. I call them as I see them. I have compassion for her, ok? I do. Robin's situation is tragic. But that doesn't give her a right to pass moral judgment on other people, and she always does that. And if your life gets blown up in the process, she doesn't care.

Patrick: Ok, well, maybe Robin's overcompensating. Maybe she feels judged for having H.I.V. Maybe she's trying to maintain control over anything she can. I would think you could understand. You seem to know what it's like to have something to prove.

[Phone rings]

Michael: Hello?

Carly: Hey, honey. It's me. Hope I didn't wake you.

Michael: No, I was reading. Are you ok?

Carly: Yeah, sure. Why?

Michael: You sound funny.

Carly: Oh, I just -- I just miss you. I miss you so much, and I wanted to talk to someone I love who loves me back.

Michael: I love you, mom.

Carly: I love you, too. I love you so much. But you shouldn't be up this late reading. Go to bed.

Michael: Well, I was about to turn out the light, but Emily came in.

Carly: Emily?

Michael: Yeah.

Carly: I thought she was staying in the guesthouse.

Michael: Not tonight. Emily and dad got stuck in the hall wearing towels.

Emily: I wanted to make sure that Michael wasn't confused by what he saw but -- you know, picking up on something between us. There is nothing between us, at least not in that way.

Sonny: No. I mean, people are making this big deal about us, but we're just friends. I guess it has to -- I got a certain reputation and a history that goes back with women. I used to be the owner of -- I don't even want to say it. It's kind of embarrassing. But I used to be the owner of a strip joint. And people make assumptions. You know, misinterpretation happens. You're a beautiful woman. You're launching a medical career. The truth is, I shouldn't have had you stay here tonight.

Emily: Well, you know, there was no heat, no hot water.

Sonny: Yeah, but I should have sent you -- I should have sent you home to the Quartermaines.

Emily: Well, it's not too late if that's what you want.

Elizabeth: Could I steal her for a couple minutes?

Dillon: Long as it takes.

Lulu: Ok, before you start, why should I be Tracy’s windup toy just so I can get her off my back?

Elizabeth: You shouldn’t. You should do it because you want to help. And who knows, maybe you'll even help yourself. Ok, look, little miss, I've known you for a very long time, and I know that you haven't had it easy -- your mom being in a mental hospital and your dad taking off, and you being left on your grandmother's front doorstep and basically being left to find your own way. And you feel sorry for yourself, and you should. You deserve to -- to a certain extent. But then after that, the "poor me" routine gets a little old.

Lulu: Ok, so in other words, you think I'm a selfish brat, just like everyone else?

Elizabeth: Well, you are, but that's not where I'm going. I know where you've been. You know, we've talked about it. I'm going to share something with you that I've learned along the way. The best way to feel good about what you have is to surround yourself with people who have a lot less. For instance, the patients in this hospital. Some of them would give anything to be able to get out of bed and just walk over to a window. Or they feel like they've had a great day if they haven't lost their lunch. You're in a position to make a difference. And it'll come back to you. So what do you say? Want to give it a shot?

Maxie: This place is unbelievable.

Jesse: I had a feeling you might like it.

Maxie: I'm starving. On the other hand, I'm really not that hungry.

Jesse: Good. Me, either.

Maxie: Maybe we could share an entree.

Jesse: Or a salad.

Maxie: Jesse, it's really sweet that you brought me here, but I do like pizza. We could leave if you want.

Jesse: No. Tonight is going to be special.

Maxie: I'm flattered you want to spend your whole paycheck on me, but what makes tonight special is being with you.

Jax: Excuse me one second. Let's go over and see mommy. Ah, Kristina wants a change in plan. She mentioned something about the museum.

Alexis: We have a family outing.

Jax: Well, she would like to go to the zoo tomorrow to make sure that Gus the polar bear -- right? -- Is wearing his winter coat.

Ric: You said tomorrow?

Jax: Yes. I convinced Kristina that Michael’s party will probably just be --

Kristina: Boys acting dumb. Duh.

Jax: Yeah.

Alexis: Really?

Jax: Mm-hmm.

Alexis: How?

Jax: Well, I told her that I was once one myself.

Alexis: You are trouble, mister.

Jax: Thanks. All right, put you back down here. See you later, ok? Bye.

Alexis: Thank you.

Ric: Thanks, Jax.

Jax: So, what is it? What's so urgent?

Courtney: Dr. Meadows was the victim of a hit-and-run tonight.

Jax: You're kidding. Where?

Courtney: The G.H. parking lot. She's in surgery now. They don't know if she's going to make it.

Jax: Uh, how did you hear about this?

Courtney: It happened almost in front of me, right after I saw you and Dr. Meadows arguing in the hospital.

Lulu: Everybody seems to think this is about me feeling sorry for myself, but this isn't what it's about.

Elizabeth: Then what is it about?

Lulu: What if I don't have what it takes? I'm not good with sick people, you know? It makes me nervous and scared. What if I'm handing out magazines and someone dies on me, and --

Elizabeth: And what? Just tell me.

Lulu: What if I flip out like my mom?

Elizabeth: Honey, you're not going to flip out.

Lulu: You -- you can't know that! I hate hospitals. I hate the way they're lit and they way they're smelling and sick people shuffling down the hallways with their walkers and their fluid bags. It makes me want to scream, ok? I -- I see myself helpless, stuck inside my head with no way out. And maybe it's selfish. I wish I could be like you, but I can't, ok? I'm me, and I -- I'm just -- I'm not going to do this.

Elizabeth: All right, ok. Lulu, just -- just --

Dillon: Hey.

Elizabeth: Hi.

Dillon: Where's -- where's Lulu?

Elizabeth: Dillon, I'm sorry, I couldn't convince her.

Dillon: That's not good. That means my mom's not going to be happy, and that means that I'm stuck as guard dog for Luke’s psycho daughter, and --

Elizabeth: I know this is really frustrating for you, but this might be the best possible thing for Lulu. Listen, Dillon, I know she comes off as being really strong, but underneath she's in a lot of pain. And she has been for a long time. And now she has to live with your crazy family -- no offense -- and her less-than-attentive dad. But you can help her. She needs somebody she can talk to, somebody who will understand her. Somebody her own age that she can trust. And if she doesn't find that soon --

Dillon: All right, I'm going. I'm going. I'll --

Elizabeth: Hey.

Robin: Hi.

Elizabeth: I thought you left for the night.

Robin: Oh, that was my first mistake.

Elizabeth: What happened?

Nurse: Elizabeth -- Elizabeth, I need you.

Elizabeth: Oh, well -- tell me later?

Robin: Sure. Perfect!

Patrick: I got it.

Robin: Look, look, I'm fine, thank you. Thank you.

Patrick: I'm just trying to help.

Robin: Why are you just -- why are you trying to be nice to me?

Patrick: Believe it or not, I've been known to have a little kindness in my heart on occasion.

Robin: No, it's something -- you're -- you feel sorry for me or something.

Patrick: That's not true.

Robin: It is true. I -- I can see it in your eyes. Carly told you that I'm H.I.V.-positive, didn't she?

Michael: What are you doing here?

Carly: Well, I just came to check on you, and then I want to check on Morgan. Hmm.

Sonny: Emily, it's not like I mean leave right now, you know what I mean?

Emily: But if you're worried about what people might think --

Sonny: You know what? Not for my sake. I can't get any worse if I tried. But you're a clean slate and, you know, that's good for a doctor. You don't want me making things worse for you. So I'll tell you what I'm going to do. Next time you're staying in the guesthouse, I will make sure it is in working order. All right?

Emily: Well, I appreciate your concern, but if you're still uncomfortable, I could go stay at my parents' house.

Sonny: Well, at this point it's not going to -- it's going to look kind of weird for Michael, you know?

Emily: That's true, and I think I've confused him enough for one night.

Sonny: And you want to stay here. You know why?

Emily: Oh, why?

Sonny: Because tomorrow I'm going to be making hotcakes.

Emily: Oh. Well, you know, actually, Michael requested waffles.

Sonny: Yeah?

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: Well, waffles it is. We can't disappoint him on his birthday.

Emily: Mm-hmm, that would make us terrible people.

Sonny: Yeah. So, are you going to stay?

Emily: Yeah, I'll stay.

Sonny: Hmm. Ok.

Maxie: This might be the best food I've ever eaten.

Jesse: That's great. Take it.

Maxie: You know, if there's some ratio of price to taste, the really expensive stuff must be unbelievable. What are you looking at?

Jesse: Sorry. I know I promised you my undivided attention, but it's weird.

Maxie: What, them? Jesse: Yeah I had a feeling Courtney was holding something back about Dr. Meadows' hit-and-run. And now here she is in some kind of emotional conversation with Jax?

Maxie: I guess I just don't see what you're seeing.

Jesse: It's instinct. I have to check something out. Then I'm all yours, I swear. Forget caution. Order dessert.

Jax: You know what, I'm not sure what you're getting at here. I went to see Dr. Meadows to get an update on your pregnancy, and she wouldn't tell me anything without your consent, ok? Now, I got more upset at the situation than -- than at her. Really, you couldn't call it an argument or a fight or anything like that. I mean, if you saw us, why didn't you just come over and say something?

Courtney: Well, I decided to speak with Dr. Meadows in private, and right after I did she got run down, Jax. Where were you after you left her?

Jax: Oh, my God, you think that I did it?  Wow, this is unbelievable. Let's see how many things you've accused me of here. First it was switching the paternity tests, making me the father instead of Nikolas. Then it was sabotaging Nikolas' plane so you couldn't be together during the holidays. And then you were suspicious of my dealings with Luke to sell Carly half of the hotel. I must have -- I must have done a lot more damage than I realized. But to answer your question -- after I saw Dr. Meadows, I came here. I had a drink. You can ask the barman if you like. Ric and Alexis were also here with Kristina. You can talk to them.

Courtney: Stop, stop.

Jax: You can interrogate the staff --

Courtney: I'm sorry! Ok, I'm sorry, ok? God, I don't know what's wrong with me. I'm just really emotional about what just happened, not to mention all of my raging hormones right now. I just -- God, can you forgive me? I just -- I'm sorry.

Jesse: Guess what. Jax has a big dent in his front fender.

Maxie: Get out.

Jesse: Yeah, the kind that could be easily made by violent contact with a human body.

Jax: Of course I forgive you, ok? I'm just glad that you came to me and confronted me with this instead of letting it fester. I guess it's -- it's a little bit of progress, you know? I am guilty of one thing, however, and that is loving you and wanting us to be a family.

Robin: You know what? You can stuff your pity, ok? I have been living with H.I.V. for years, so I don't need you suddenly being nice to me or taking it easy on me because of it.

Patrick: I was trying to be nice. But since you find that so offensive, let me point out something else you seem to have missed. H.I.V.-positive or not, you act like a jerk, you'll be treated accordingly.

Carly: You know, you have spent lots of time in the guesthouse with Emily. Has the heat ever gone off before?

Michael: No. But it must have been so funny.

Carly: Why is that?

Michael: To see Emily covered in dirt. She's the worst at starting fires.

Carly: Hmm.

Michael: So that's why she came over here -- to take a shower.

Carly: Oh. Makes sense.

Michael: Then she locked herself out of the guest room wearing a towel, and dad tried to help her, but I'm the one who got the door open.

Carly: Really?

Michael: Why didn't you come through the front?

Carly: Oh, because I don't want to wake anyone up, and it was a lot more fun coming through the window, wasn't it?

Michael: Yeah, kind of like what you used to do.

Carly: Yeah. Get some rest, ok? Tomorrow's a big day. I can't wait for your party.

Michael: Me, either.

Carly: Come here. I love you.

Michael: I love you.

Carly: Five more minutes and then you're done.

Michael: Ok.

Carly: Ok. I'm going to go check on Morgan.

Michael: Ok.

Sonny: I'm very glad you decided to stay.

Emily: Me, too.

Sonny: Uh, ok. Here.

Emily: Thanks.

Sonny: Voila, it works.

Emily: Well, good night, again.

Sonny: Good night, again.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Mac: I need to know exactly where you drove yesterday.

Jesse: I'd like to go down to the station. We need you to I.D. a suspect.

Sam: Tell him I said happy birthday.

Jason: You're not going to Michael’s party?

Carly: Every time I see you, I feel like you've grown a foot.

Michael: Mom, the last time you saw me was last night when you crawled in through my window.
