Alice: Here you are, Mr. Luke -- shaken, not stirred, three olives.

Luke: Alice, you're a gift from the Gods. Here's to 2006. Mmm. So, my love, I assume that Tracy had some choice words about me after I left last night with the gorgeous redhead.

Alice: Well, actually, she just copied the rest of the Quartermaines and took herself straight to bed.

Luke: That's my wife. Imagine -- my ideal wife. What more could a man ask for?

Alice: Well --

[Knock on door]

Lucky: Dad, there's something you need to know.

Luke: Should auld acquaintance be forgot.  Happy New Year

Lucky: No.

Luke: Oh -- what? What?

Lucky: Not so much.

Luke: What? What?

Lucky: Lulu's out of control, so tell me that your new year's resolution this year is to start acting like a father.

Ric: You're putting all of your eggs in one basket, Alexis.

Alexis: Manny's acquittal hangs on this medical evidence. Robin and Patrick need to testify to the jury that Manny's literally a changed man.

Robin: Patrick? You and I need to get a few things straight.

Carly: Oh, Jason. Thank God. Thank God you are here. I need you. I need you. I just hope it's not too late.

Jason: For what? What are you doing here?

Carly: You have got to stop Sonny and Emilyís date immediately.

Sam: You know, I am so sick of you. Do not let her pressure you, please? If you love your sister as much as you say you do, do not let her pressure you.

Emily: No matter how many times I'm warned or how hard I try to fight it, I'm falling in love with you. What I meant is that there are things that I love about you, who you are as a man and as a father, and I've, you know, come to appreciate you so much and -- I must have had more red wine than I realized. Have you been refilling my glass when I'm not paying attention?

Sonny: No --

Emily: Yeah, you have, because I'm just not used to it, so you know what? Just forget that I -- I said anything --

Sonny: No, no, wait, wait.

Emily: Yeah?

Sonny: I understand.

Lucky: Lulu was pulled over for speeding last night. She was doing over 100.

Luke: Speeding? On what, you're old two-wheeler?

Lucky: Edward's Bentley, all right? It's a miracle that she didn't kill herself or anyone else. I had to call in a favor and ask the patrol unit to let her go.

Luke: Oh, come on, cowboy. Lighten up. If you had had access to a Bentley when you were her age, coo coo ca-choo, you would have joy rode from here to Vermont.

Lucky: Dad, the whole point of Lulu living with you is so you could give her a little guidance, all right? Not look the other way while she acts out.

Luke: Look, I'll parent my way, you parent yours.

Lucky: You're not parenting at all. She's going to keep pushing the envelope until you act like she even exists or she gets in serious trouble, whatever comes next.

Lulu: Hey, why'd you rat me out?

Lucky: Because I don't want to beat myself up for standing by and doing nothing. Little sister, you're about to be a tragic headline waiting to happen.

Patrick: Whatever your issues, Dr. Scorpio, it'll have to wait. Lady Justice is expecting me. After that, I have dinner plans with another lady altogether.

Robin: I really don't care about your social life. I want to talk to you about the deposition.

Patrick: It's confidential.

Robin: You're going to go in there and you're going to make it all about how brilliant you are, chapter and verse on the surgery you performed on Manny, but this deposition is about more than that.

Patrick: Not in my book.

Robin: You need to tell them what you saw.

Patrick: I saw an arterial venous malformation in the frontal lobe of the patient's brain.

Robin: And after the surgery?

Patrick: I ate sushi at a place on Green Street.

Robin: What changes did you see in Mannyís behavior after the surgery?

Patrick: Why don't you tell them since you're all about being touchy-feely with your patients?

Robin: Manny Ruiz was remorseful, calm, and no longer aggressive.

Patrick: He's alive. That's all I care about. Whether it's Charles Manson or Gandhi before I get my hands in them, I really don't care.

Robin: Well, you should. He's a living tribute to your genius, Patrick.

Patrick: I'll put him on my resume.

Robin: You like to be the rebel. Speaking on behalf of Manny Ruiz would be the ultimate in-your-face gesture. Why don't you go in there and admit that the guy actually deserves a second chance? Take a stand on something for once. It feels good. You should try it.

Patrick: So I do stir up some passion in you.

Alexis: Dr. Drake, we're ready for you now.

Sam: Emily is divorced; Sonny is divorced. That makes them two consenting adults. They can do whatever it is that they want to do. That's life. Don't interfere, ok?

Carly: You know what? I was really starting to think you had some potential when I watched you go after Alexis at my party, and now you go and prove me wrong.

Sam: Are you kidding me? Stop interfering. Jason cannot do that. If he interferes with Sonny and Emily, then Emily will resent him. Why don't we just let them work this out by themselves?

Carly: Stop having an opinion about something you don't know anything about, Sam. If Sonny and Emily have an affair, they're going to hurt themselves along with a lot of other people, and Jason is way too good a friend and a brother to ever let that happen, which is why he's going to go over there and stop it before it gets too far.

Jason: No, I'm not.

Sonny: You don't have to apologize for saying how you feel. I mean, I -- you know, it means a lot to me that you're honest and you trust, you know --

Emily: I don't want to put you in an awkward position.

Sonny: You're not.

Emily: No?

Sonny: You're an amazing woman. You have wonderful qualities, and I think the world of you. You know, I always hoped that you thought the same about me, that you understood that it's not easy for me to trust anybody. So by, you know, you saying how you feel like that -- I know how rare it is to -- to be with somebody and it's easy, you know?

Emily: Yeah.

Sonny: Friends.

Emily: Right, yeah, friends.

Sonny: Good and cherished friends.

Lucky: You keep doing this really stupid stuff, Lulu.

Lulu: No. It's called fun, and I heard you used to do the same thing when you were my age until you got a stick stuck up your --

Lucky: That was different.

Lulu: Oh, why? Because you're a guy? No, I'm so sick of this stupid double standard with the Spencer men. The girls cook and clean and have little unwanted Spencers while the guys go and save the world?

Luke: Man, you don't know much about your mother.

Lulu: Ok, dad, no, I donít. Why don't you tell me? Tell me about you and mom when she was my age.

Luke: You're right. She's out of control.

Lucky: Listen, I can't keep bailing you out again.

Lulu: No, you can, but you wonít.

Lucky: Someone needs to set some limits, stop you from hurting yourself. I've done my part.

Lulu: Oh, can you believe him? I can't understand how he was ever your son.

Luke: It's a mystery to me, too. By the way, you're done driving.

Lulu: You're kidding.

Luke: Your brother thinks you need limits. It's up to me to set them.

Lulu: Since when?

Luke: Since five minutes ago. So no more joy riding, no more hot-wiring the Bentley. Those are the house rules.

Lulu: Or what?

Ric: Thank you for your cooperation, Dr. Drake. We'll contact you if we need you for anything further. Dr. Scorpio, we can take you right away.

Robin: Mm-hmm.

Alexis: Hi, Robin.

Robin: Hi.

Alexis: Thanks for giving us your time here. You're familiar with my client, Manny Ruiz.

Robin: Yes. I recently observed on his surgery.

Alexis: Did you consider his surgery a success?

Robin: Oh, very much so. It is my belief that Manny Ruiz is not inherently a violent man. His aggressive behavior was caused by an A.V. malformation on his brain that was diminishing the blood flow to his frontal lobe. After the medical problem was corrected, the behavioral problem was eradicated.

Alexis: And that's the gist of what you said in the written report?

Robin: Yes. That is my professional opinion.

Alexis: Excellent. Now, this surgery -- have you ever seen -- all right, let's move on. How familiar are you with Jason Morgan?

Robin: I don't understand the relevance of that question.

Alexis: I'll ask it another way. How well do you know Jason Morgan?

Carly: Why are you listening to Sam? She can't possibly understand, Jason.

Jason: Carly --

Sam: I know. I know. I'm just going to take a wild guess and say that you need to talk to Carly alone.

Jason: Huh.

Sam: You know what? That's good because I'd rather be upstairs running our bath.

Carly: Yeah, that's great.

Jason: Look, you know what? I don't care how mad you get at me. I am not going to fight with you. I said what I had to say to Sonny, I said what I had to say to Emily --

Carly: So there's something going on between Sonny and Emily?

Jason: Look, what happened to your declaration of independence? This whole thing where you were going to have your own life, your new life with you and your kids. What happened?

Carly: This is about my kids, Jason. This is about their father, and what happens to him affects them, and everyone is going to get hurt, including your precious sister, Emily.

Jason: If you want Sonny back, just admit it.

Carly: This is not what that's --

Jason: It's not?

Carly: No.

Jason: It's not? Because you're obsessing over who he's with and how to try to stop him. I mean, seriously, is this how you want to live your life?  Please, Carly. For your own sake, you have to let this go.

Carly: This is why I need you in my life. Nobody will understand that.

Emily: You know, I swear, red wine turns me into someone I don't even know, Sonny, like really silly --

Sonny: Emily?

Emily: And you have every right to think that I've lost --

Sonny: Emily, don't -- don't -- look, you don't have to --

Emily: I just don't want things to be weird between us --

Sonny: Then you have to stop while you're ahead. You understand?

Emily: Yeah, of course. Yeah, ok, you're right. Oh, God. Oh.

Sonny: You've been nothing but wonderful to me, to Michael, to Morgan. I mean, you don't even know how grateful I am, and I'm flattered.

Emily: Sonny, please.

Sonny: Can you hear me out? You were in bad shape when you came in here. You had a lot going on, and I think maybe now you've gotten Nikolas a bit out of your system. You're a strong woman. You want to get your life back going, right? And I'm sure you're going to make some man very, very happy someday. But it can't be me. I mean, not because I don't think you're beautiful and special and you got so much to offer, but my life is so complicated.

Emily: Sonny, please. You don't have to explain.

Sonny: I want to explain.

Emily: No.

Sonny: Do you understand?

Emily: Listen, I put you in a really bad position, and I never want to do that, and you know what? I have things that I have to do, you know, like school and --

Sonny: No, no, no, no, no. I'm going to get some coffee.

Emily: No, no. I'm fine.

Sonny: No, you're not fine.

Emily: No, really.

Sonny: I'm telling you --

Emily: Sonny, I'm -- I'm great, ok?

Sonny: Whoa --

Emily: Oh. Oh.

Sonny: Are you hurt?

Emily: No. No, no, no.

Sonny: Are you sure?

Emily: No, I'm -- I'm ok. I'm ok. Really, I just -- I just need to leave. Ahem.

Sonny: I'm going to have Milo drive you home.

Emily: No. No, no, no. No, no. I just need to get out of here before I break anything else. Oh, my God. Could I make a bigger fool out of myself?

Sonny: I don't know. Maybe if you tried a little harder, I --

Emily: Wow. That was really direct.

Sonny: Well, red wine does that to you. Milo. Hey.

Emily: Yeah?

Sonny: What you said tonight --

Emily: Mm-hmm?

Sonny: I'm very flattered, and I feel the same about you. I'm -- you know what I mean.

[Door opens]

Sonny: Can you take Ms. Quartermaine home and make sure she arrives safely?

Milo: Sure, boss.

Sonny: And we'll -- your car will -- tomorrow, we'll take her car back to the --

Emily: Yeah, listen --

Sonny: Hey.

Emily: I just really don't -- don't want to be difficult.

Sonny: Can you just step out for one second? Thanks. What happened tonight, ok -- very special and I had a great time at dinner.

Emily: Ok. Yeah. Bye.

Carly: Hey.

Michael: Hi, mom. See you later.

Carly: Whoa. "See you later" -- what do you mean? Where are you going?

Max: Michael left his game over at Sonny's so --

Michael: Max is going to drive me over there.

Carly: Honey, you can't summon Max over here whenever you feel like it.

Michael: He's cool with it. No big deal.

Carly: Yes, it is a big deal. Max is not your personal chauffeur. And you're going to have to start being a little bit more responsible when it comes to your things. Sorry about this, Max. I know you have a lot to keep yourself busy without waiting on Michael and Morgan hand and foot.

Max: No, it's no problem.

Carly: Ok.

Max: Take care.

Carly: See you.

Michael: It's not fair. You were gone for a long time and you don't get to just come back and tell me what to do.

Lulu: I'm just curious what you think you'll do if I take the Bentley out again.

Luke: There will be consequences.

Lulu: Oh. Like a time-out? Or maybe you could even ground me. In your vast experience as a parent, what is your choice method of discipline?

Luke: Look, your brother's a cop. He thinks he knows things about you, like you're acting out because you're trying to get my attention and that you want to get caught. Now, if he's right, here I am, I'm all yours. Just tell me, what do you want from me?

Lulu: Ok, no, you're not equipped, dad. Just stick to the basics, ok? A birthday card, an occasional nod of recognition, but don't start laying down rules and getting all family values on me, especially considering who you married.

Luke: My marriage is none of your business.

Lulu: Well, no one thinks that you love Tracy, not even Tracy.

Luke: Look, if your strategy here is to just change the subject, go away. I'm going to read the paper.

Lulu: Ok, no. I'm just curious. Why did you marry her, and don't say it was for the money.

Luke: Look, I don't need you or your brother or anybody else to tell me I'm a lousy parent. I accept that about me, and I forgive me for it. But if you're stealing cars and driving over 100 miles an hour, then even a crappy parent like me is going to step in and try and do something about it! So spit it out! What the hell do you want?

Lulu: I want my mother!

Robin: Jason Quartermaine then is extremely different than the Jason Morgan today.

Alexis: How so?

Robin: Jason Quartermaine was warm, outgoing, generous. He was a good friend and a good man.

Alexis: Is that all? Were you and Jason Quartermaine more than friends?

Robin: Well, I -- I mean, I had a crush on him. What girl wouldn't?

Alexis: You had more than a crush on Jason Morgan, didn't you?

Robin: Well --

Alexis: How would you characterize the difference between Jason Morgan and Jason Quartermaine?

Robin: Night and day.

Alexis: I've heard some refer to him as cold.

Robin: They're wrong.

Alexis: Unfeeling?

Robin: People that say that don't know Jason. He doesn't let a lot of people in. He doesn't trust them.

Alexis: Does he trust you?

Robin: He did, very much.

Alexis: Despite the fact that he was no longer warm and giving and generous, you said?

Robin: Well, Jason -- I mean, he has a difficult time expressing emotional highs and lows, but that doesn't mean that in his heart he's still not a good person.

Ric: But you do agree that a person can profoundly change due to extraordinary circumstances like Jason, and more importantly, Manny Ruiz were subjected to?

Robin: Of course, that's what I was saying.

Ric: Ok, thank you very much, doctor. That's all we need unless Alexis has any more questions.

Alexis: No. I think -- I think that's good. Thank you, Robin. I appreciate you coming in.

Patrick: I didn't realize just how hung up you are on Jason.

Robin: Don't you find it even a little bit embarrassing that you were eavesdropping? I mean, how cheesy are you?

Patrick: What's amazing is how your voice changes when you talk about him. All that ice just melts away. So, I mean, I can't help but wonder what happened. Who dumped who?

Robin: Back off.

Patrick: So you blew it.

Sam: I'm sorry for jumping in like that. What you do about your sister is your business. I shouldn't -- I'm sorry.

Jason: It's ok.

Sam: Truthfully, I really don't think it matters what you do, because Carly is going to stomp any possibility of a Sonny and Emily romance into the dirt.

Jason: Carly is telling herself that she's going to back off.

Sam: Yeah. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. She doesn't have the willpower. She talks a good game, but she keeps herself tangled up in Sonny's life no matter what.

Jason: I told her that I'm staying out of it. I want to stay out of this.

Sam: I know it's not easy. You're worried about Emily.

[Phone rings]

Jason: Whew. Yeah.

Sonny: It's me. We got a problem.

Jason: What? Manny again?

Sonny: Nope. It's Emily.

Alexis: Thank you.

Man: Thank you.

Ric: What's this?

Alexis: I love the Gold Star Grille.

Ric: Uh-huh.

Alexis: You love the Gold Star Grille. It's one of your favorite meals that I never make you.

Ric: You don't make that?

Alexis: Uh-uh. Isn't it romantic?

Ric: I would have taken you out to dinner, you know, right after Jason didn't show up for his deposition. And being romantic in the hospital conference room, really?

Alexis: This is so nice, you and I working together, seeing eye to eye. I think it's very romantic, and I think it's cause for an impromptu celebration.

Ric: What happened? Impromptu?

Alexis: Mm-hmm.

Ric: Looks like a setup to me.

Carly: I know things were awful when I was away. And they were horrible for me, too. But I'm back now, and you don't get to talk to me like that. That's totally unacceptable, Michael.

Michael: Well, Max and one of the guards give me and Morgan whatever we want when we're at dadís. Emily takes care of all of us. And when I forgot my book report, she went back and got it.

Carly: Emily's not your mother. I am, and we have our own rules.

Michael: Stupid rules.

Carly: Ok, I know that you've had a pretty tough year. And I'm really sorry about that. And I love you and Morgan with all my heart, but I will not indulge your every whim. So, tomorrow you can call your dad and you can ask him for your video game. And if you don't like that, Michael, you can go to your room.

Michael: Fine!

Carly: Great.

Elizabeth: Why do they keep parading Mr. Ruiz around here?

Patrick: It's part of his recovery.

Elizabeth: Well, it gives me the creeps.

Patrick: Don't be anxious. I'll see that nothing bad happens to you.

Elizabeth: What about the rest of the patients on this floor?

Patrick: Have you ever considered becoming an O.R. nurse?

Elizabeth: I like what I do.

Patrick: I think you'd be terrific. You have the temperament, patience, steady hands.

Elizabeth: You know, I heard your father had a thing for O.R. nurses. Genetics -- it's amazing.

Patrick: I'm serious. I think you'd make a great addition.

Elizabeth: Oh. To what? Your trophy case?

Patrick: Isn't anyone on the career track anymore?

Elizabeth: I'll tell you what. I'll think about it.

Patrick: Over dinner, with me.

Elizabeth: You know, you might have missed the little fact that I'm married.

Patrick: Would your husband object to you discussing your future with a colleague?

Elizabeth: You mean my very possessive, police officer husband, who I'm totally crazy about?

Patrick: My loss.

Elizabeth: Hey, Em.

Emily: Hey.

Elizabeth: I thought you went home for the night.

Emily: No, no. I can't face my family right now. I can't face anybody. I just spent 10 minutes convincing Sonny's driver to bring me here. I promised him that I was safe and it was fine.

Elizabeth: Safe from what?

Emily: Oh, safe from myself, my own worst enemy.

Elizabeth: All right, honey, what happened? What's wrong?

Emily: Besides too much red wine, I feel like I'm stuck again. I'm back at the hospital doing exactly what I think I'm supposed to be doing, except I feel like a fraud. I have zero confidence in my ability to be a doctor. I'm pretty much ticking off everybody I know. And I just had the most humiliating night of my entire life.

Sonny: Emily was here a little while ago.

Jason: Well, Carly told me she was here.

Sonny: Yeah. As you can see, we had some wine and we talked. It was nice. And then out of nowhere, she kind of just said to me that she's falling in love with me.

Jason: What did you say?

Sonny: Well, I said that I was flattered, that she's a special person, a good person, but I just don't feel the same way for her and that -- exactly what you wanted me to say.

Jason: All right.

Sonny: And she was embarrassed, humiliated, and she was, you know --

Jason: I'm sorry.

Sonny: Yeah, I am, too. Emily was hurt. She felt she made a fool of herself, and, you know --

Jason: What?

Sonny: I lied to her, ok? Well, because I told her that I didn't have any feelings for her. And I -- I kind of do.

Tracy: The hood on the Bentley is still warm. Three guesses who's responsible for that. The first two don't count.

Luke: Lulu.

Tracy: Oh --

[Tracy applauds]

Tracy: Give the man a prize. What is she thinking? And -- what's wrong with you?

Luke: When I moved her in here to this house, you told me it was a mistake, that I'd regret it, and you were right. Putting a kid with a gift for larceny in this place is like walking a diabetic in a candy store. So bring it on, give me the big "I told you so." Rub my face in it. Go ahead.

Tracy: It's the voice of experience, Luke.

Carly: Michael, I brought us some cheesecake. We can share --

Sam: Hey.

Robin: Hey. Is Jason here?

Sam: No. He had to go out for a little while.

Robin: I'd like to wait.

Sam: Yeah, why not? What's so important?

Robin: I gave my deposition today in the Manny Ruiz case.

Sam: Wow, that must have been interesting. What did you say?

Robin: I told the truth.

Sam: Good, that Manny is a psychopath who deserves the death penalty, right?

Robin: That Manny's violent actions were the result of a brain deformity. It wasn't his fault or his choice. Now, I know that that's difficult for you to wrap your mind around, but --

Sam: You're trying to set a killer free, someone who came after Jason, me, Sonny, his whole family -- everyone on that train, including you.

Robin: I'd like Jason to hear why I testified the way that I did.

Sam: You are trying to set a man free who shot Jason, tried to rape me twice, and you really expect him to be ok with that?

Sonny: Isn't that what you wanted? For me to lie to your sister and tell her that, you know, I don't return her feelings?

Emily: And what made it worse was that Sonny was so great. Elizabeth, he said all of the right things. He swore that I didn't make a fool out of myself, but I know that I did.

Jason: Are you asking me to say this thing with Emily is ok? Because I canít. And if you're honest, you can't, either.

Emily: As soon as the words were out of my mouth, I knew it was a mistake. Oh, God. Elizabeth, you should have seen the look on his face. We both wished that a hole would open up and swallow us, but for different reasons.

Jason: You know what? Maybe Emily feeling a little pain now is better than feeling a whole lot of pain later.

Sonny: You want me to be Emilyís friend, I can do that. Yeah. But it's not going to change that I feel something for her.

Elizabeth: It's obvious Sonny cares about you. How could he not? And I promise you, no matter how embarrassed you are right now, it will pass.

Emily: Oh, Elizabeth, I should have kept my mouth shut. I had no business telling him how I feel. There's no way he could feel the same way about me.

Jason: You really have these feelings for my sister? I've said what I said. I trust you. You decide what Emily can handle best.

Sonny: I already did. I let her go.

Tracy: I was young when Ned was born. I paid absolutely no attention to him. I had no concept to follow through. I told myself when Dillon was born, things were going to be different. The breakup with his father -- thank you -- was ugly. So I ran. But I kept Dillon with me with the belief that he would be getting what he needed. Now that both boys are grown, I see the truth of it, which is that some parents just stink. In fact, if Ned and Dillon have anything to offer the world, it's in spite of me, not because of me.

Luke: Well, I never wanted kids. They just tie you down. I had some good times with my son when he was very young, but now he's a cop, so that's over. And then my wife got sick. And she saddled me with a child that I didn't want and I don't know how to raise. Not really interested, to tell you the truth. I mean, she's angry at everything, Lulu. She's angry at -- I mean, she's even angry that I disappeared on Christmas, which I do every year.

Tracy: Where do you spend Christmas, Luke?

Luke: With a ghost. Last year, it was London. This year, it was Shadybrook. The background changes, but the blank stare remains the same.

Tracy: Does Lulu know?

Luke: No. No. I don't know what to do with that kid. I bailed on her once. I should have just kept bailing, because trying to be a father is just going to hurt her more. Let's face it.

[Phone rings]

Luke: Hmm. I'll get it. Quartermaine Asylum. Yeah, that's me. I'll be right there.

Ric: Mmm.

Alexis: Guess.

Ric: It's some kind of poultry.

Alexis: Hmm.

Ric: Duck?

Alexis: With --

Ric: Ooh, Szechwan sauce?

Alexis: And?

Ric: Wild mushrooms.

Alexis: Ooh.

Ric: You like that? Mmm. That's very sensual.

Alexis: You're good at this.

Ric: Yeah, I know. This is very, very sensual, you know.

Alexis: Mm-hmm.

Ric: Because, you know, appealing to the senses, like taste and touch. Can I have some more?

Alexis: Hmm. Which?

Ric: You. You realize if anybody walks in here --

Alexis: Hmm?

Ric: Whatever's left of my shoddy legal career is going down the toilet.

Alexis: Hmm, that's why they have locked doors.

Ric: Oh, very good. Oh -- you know what? Seeing as how Jasonís definitely not going to show up for his -- his deposition, I say we move on to dessert.

Alexis: Hmm. Ooh, I love a man with a contingency plan.

Ric: You know, the only thing is, sweetheart --

Alexis: Hmm?

Ric: I want to ask you something.

Alexis: What?

Ric: What are you up to?

Alexis: I just want you to know how much I have loved working with you.

Ric: Past tense?

Alexis: I'm not going to be needing your help from this point on, because I have discovered a precedent that is a slam dunk -- whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!

Ric: Have you?

Alexis: You know, Randall vs. The State of Rhode Island?

Ric: Oh, right. Organized crimes.

Alexis: John Randall --

Ric: Yeah, yeah, John Randall, organized crime. He's a mob boss just like Manny Ruiz is.

Alexis: How do you know that? There is no way that you can know that, unless you looked in my P.D.A.

Ric: Oh, there are similarities between that and the Ruiz case. And besides, it flies in the face of the precedent -- I think it was Laver versus Newcombe.

Alexis: I know Laver versus Newcombe. I told you, I read up on all those decisions. I'm very well aware of Laver versus Newcombe.

Ric: Excuse me, I didn't realize that you were so up on all these precedents. But my question is to you --

Alexis: Hmm?

Ric: Sweetie --

Alexis: Yes?

Ric: How could you possibly know about Laver versus Newcombe --?

Alexis: Hmm.

Ric: Rod Laver --

Alexis: Hmm?

Ric: And John Newcombe.

Alexis: Yes?

Ric: Were in the men's --

Alexis: Mm-hmm?

Ric: Final at Wimbledon in 1969? And it was a classic. I'm over here, babe. Over here. Almost. Come here, come on, right here. Right here, come on, all the way. All right.

Emily: It was a mistake.

Elizabeth: You told him what was in your heart.

Emily: No, and probably ruined our friendship. Elizabeth, it's always going to be there. It's going to be like the elephant in the room. You know, that big, awful thing that we never talk about, but we always trip over.

Elizabeth: Ok, first of all, love isn't awful. And, second, give it time. The awkwardness will fade if the friendship is real.

Emily: You're such an optimist.

Elizabeth: Do you remember that time that Lucky thought he was falling in love with you? It took its course, died its natural death. And everything worked out the way it was supposed to be. And you and Lucky are still close and I'm not threatened.

Emily: Yeah. Except for one thing. You said Lucky thought he was in love with me.

[Knock on door]

Carly: Sonny, I don't know what you let Michael get away with while I was in the hospital. But you and I need to sit down and talk to him and get a few things straight.

Sonny: Such as?

Carly: Acceptable behavior, respecting his mother. Look, I love my son to death, but he's spoiled rotten.

Sonny: That's my fault?

Carly: Oh, come on. If he reacts this way over a video game, we're in big trouble. We need to set this kid straight.

Sonny: Ok, you just tell me when and I'll be there.

Carly: Well, then let's do it now.

Sonny: Well, isn't the point Michaelís supposed to be with you?

Carly: What are you talking about? He's here.

Sonny: No, he's with you.

Carly: No, we got into a fight and he climbed out the bedroom window, and I'm sure he was coming here.

Sonny: What --

Sam: You make these choices and then try and justify it by saying it's the right thing to do, when really it's only the right thing to do for you.

Robin: I don't understand why the truth is so hard for people to take. I am sick of being criticized for having a conscience. Punishing Manny Ruiz for something that was out of his control --

Sam: Out of his --

Robin: Is wrong.

Sam: Manny is a monster. He hasn't changed. He should pay for the things he did!

Robin: You don't even hear what a hypocrite you are. You accept violence from the people that you love, but no one else stands a chance.

Sam: It's crazy for you to fight for Manny.

Robin: I'm not fighting for him. I am telling the truth as I know it, just like I told A.J. that he was Michaelís father. I did the right thing, and I'm not going to apologize for it.

[Door closes]

Robin: You know that now, don't you? That it was wrong to keep the truth from A.J.? That he deserved to know that Michael was his son?

Jason: It's not about right or wrong, the truth versus a lie. It's about Michael and how you blew his life apart. And in a way, that little kid is still paying.

Michael: Ah!

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Ric: So Jasonís refusing to testify?

Jason: You shattered Michaelís world.

Robin: You are the one that lied.

Sonny: I need you to search everywhere between here and Carlyís. Michael's missing.

Michael: Help!
