Carly: Yeah, the first thing I want to do is revamp the corporate suites because they're awful, and we have to change these outfits that all the guys are wearing around here. They're terrible, too. Oh, can you make me an appointment this afternoon with the food and beverage department? Yeah, I want to redo that. Well, the room service is --

Luke: Look at you, in your element, striding through the lobby, barking orders on the cell phone. It's time to pay the piper, niece of mine. I want my finder's fee, and I want it now.

Carly: I told you you will get --

Luke: I want it today!

Carly: Why are you in such a hurry?

Jax: My guess? Luke knows that I'm taking back your half of the hotel.

Robin: Hmm. It's kind of an interesting coincidence.

Elizabeth: What's that?

Robin: Patrick and Emily are both late for work today.

Elizabeth: Maybe they were out late.

Robin: Together?

Elizabeth: People on a date are usually together.

Robin: Oh, I thought that they canceled their date because Patrick had to do emergency surgery on Jesse.

Elizabeth: Oh, no, Patrick and Emily definitely went out.

Courtney: Who'd Emily go out with?

Robin: Dr. Patrick Drake. Otherwise known as Dr. Slime.

Courtney: What is that supposed to mean?

Robin: Patrick is a dog. If Emily went out with him, it was for the first and last time. It becomes apparent very quickly that under all that initial charm lies nothing. I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if Emily walked out halfway through dinner.

Patrick: I didn't look at you and think "hellcat," but you definitely proved me wrong last night.

Nikolas: Hey.

Lucky: Hey.

Nikolas: I really hate it when you summon me places and then don't tell me why. So what is this about?

Lucky: Well, I'm following up on drunk and disorderly assault charges that were filed last night in connection with a bar fight here. Just thought you might want to know about it.

Nikolas: Ok. Well, that must mean that it's someone I care about.

Lucky: Mm-hmm.

Nikolas: Lulu?

Lucky: Emily.

Nikolas: What? Come on, Emily in a bar fight? That's impossible.

Coleman: Yeah, the hell it is. Emily tore this place up and, as the owner, I didn't appreciate it.

Jesse: Been here all night?

Maxie: Where else would I be? I'm not going to trust your recovery to anyone but me, so you'd better get used to this face.

Jesse: Oh. I think I can handle that.

[Knock on door]

Alexis: Hi. Are you up for a visit?

Jesse: Come on in.

Alexis: Ok. How you feeling?

Maxie: Not good. Jesse took a bullet in his spine.

Jesse: Near the spine.

Maxie: Oh, whatever. The point is I don't know if he's ready to be grilled. I mean, that's what you're here for, right?

Alexis: I'm actually just here to ask a quick question. I promise I won't tire him out.

Jesse: It's ok, Maxie.

Alexis: You were shot by Enrique Ruiz, Manny's cousin. We're trying to piece together what happened. Did you hear or see anything that transpired between Jason and Manny? Is that a yes or a no?

Jesse: I can't be sure, but I think Jason threatened to kill Manny.

[Baby cries]

Sam: Mommy hears you. I'm trying to find you.

Sam: My baby. My baby. No. No! My baby! My baby.

Jason: Hey, hey, hey. It's ok, it's ok. You just had a bad dream. It's ok.

Sam: Jason, it was Manny. He had my baby. He had my daughter.

Jason: It's ok, it's ok.

Patrick: We'll definitely have to book an encore.

Emily: All right, well, I'll look forward to it, so have a good one.

Patrick: I will, thanks to you.

Emily: Hmm.

Patrick: Morning, Dr. Sourpuss. I need the Stillwell chart. How's your day so far? That good, huh?

Elizabeth: You're late.

Emily: Just a little, yeah. So how's the baby?

Courtney: Oh, I'm about to find out. I have a sonogram I had to have rescheduled, so --

Emily: Oh.

Courtney: Sounds like you had fun last night.

Emily: Yeah. Yeah. You know, much more than I expected.

Courtney: That's great.

Emily: Yeah. You know, Nikolas and you aren't the only ones capable of moving on.

Courtney: Wow. Ok. I'm going to go.

Emily: I hope I didn't come off as too edgy.

Elizabeth: Oh, sure you do. So why don't you tell me about this date, because according to Robin and my personal observation, Patrick is as shallow as a mud puddle and a total dog.

Emily: Hmm. Patrick is exactly what I needed.

Coleman: Yeah, you know what, I should've known it was going to be trouble when Little Miss Rich Pants graced my lowly establishment here with her regal presence.

Patrick: I didn't picture you a roadhouse girl.

Emily: Yeah, well, I'm expanding my horizons.

Patrick: Well, I'm glad to assist.

Emily: Hey, let's just be clear on something, Patrick -- I'm not interested in anything deeper than a game of pool and a couple of beers.

Patrick: That's a good place to start.

Man: I was sitting pretty until Corinthos came along. Someone ought to kill that bastard, and Jason Morgan, too.

Coleman: Hey, shut your trap. That's Morgan’s little sister.

Patrick: I should warn you -- I'm not going to be very good in a bar fight. I can't risk my hands, so if you want to leave, now's probably the time.

Emily: You know, we came here to have fun and that's what we're going to do.

Patrick: Even if it kills us?

Man: Is it true? You Morgan’s sister?

Emily: Yeah, that's right.

Man: Your brother's made some serious trouble for me. But I'm going to give you a chance to wipe his slate clean.

Jax: You see, I paid Dr. Meadows to make sure that Courtney’s first paternity test named me as the father. Luke found out this information and used it to blackmail me into selling you half of the hotel. But the truth is out now. Courtney had a second paternity test that proves that I really am the father. So Luke, and you by extension, have nothing on me and I want you both gone.

Carly: Well, it's too late. You can't back out.

Jax: Really?

Carly: Yes. Money exchanged hands, contracts were signed, and I own half of this hotel.

Jax: Oh. Well, maybe you can sell me back half of the hotel or you'll see me in court, at which point I'll tell the judge about our previous partnership in Club 101. You remember that, right? You remember embezzling from me?

Carly: That was a misunderstanding.

Jax: Well, we'll have to let the judge make that distinction, won't we? Do yourself a favor, Carly, ok -- just back out gracefully this time instead of the usual, you know, screaming and kicking and public humiliation.

Carly: You want a finder's fee? You better find something for me to use against Jax or you can kiss your money goodbye.

Alexis: Jesse, were you going to mention that Jason threatened to kill Manny?

Jesse: You know, I've been kind of unconscious.

Alexis: You were awake when I walked in. Why don't you tell me exactly what you saw or heard?

Jesse: I couldn't see anything from where I fell. I heard Jason tell Manny that, "This is for Sam." I know Jason had a gun. I think he meant to use it.

Jason: Can I get you something?

Sam: No. No, I'm all right. Are you just getting home?

Jason: Yeah, it was a late night.

Sam: I guess I just -- I fell asleep on the couch. I was trying to wait up for you. Jason, this dream I had, I felt so afraid and so helpless. Manny, he had my baby and he wouldn't give her back, and I just -- I keep seeing that face and that twisted grin on his face.

Jason: I can't put myself in your place, but you don't need to be afraid of Manny anymore. I'm not going to let him hurt you. I just need a little time.

Sam: I know that, and I right now am my own worst enemy.

Jason: Well, how?

Sam: You tried to tell me about giving Manny so much power, not letting him invade my life and poison my dreams. Anyway, I went to the police station last night and you were already gone, and Manny was there and so was Carly, and I was talking to Carly and Manny had come up to Carly and he wanted to talk to her. He wanted to apologize; I -- I think, and I think Carly agreed just to test him. So there I was sitting outside the interrogation room watching, nothing in my head except Manny and would he give himself away, how could I prove that he was as dangerous as ever. That's not how I want to live my life, Jason. I want my life back in my control.

Luke: I'm fresh out of leverage.

Carly: Well, that's just great, Luke.

Luke: Apart from the paternity test switch, Jasper appears to live a very clean life, and appearances are all that count when you have no evidence to the contrary.

Carly: I like this hotel. I have no intention of giving up my stake in it.

Luke: That's the spirit, Caroline. You hold on to it, and as long as you do, you still owe me.

Carly: You know what? Give it up, Luke. Your windfall is history, all right? I plan on dealing with Jax personally from now on.

Luke: You seem to be a little confused, niece of mine. Allow Uncle Luke to explain. This whole deal was predicated on me getting you half ownership of this hotel. As long as you keep what I got you, you still owe me what you promised. Now, what are you going to do to whip Jax back into line?

Carly: Don't worry about it. You didn't share your leverage with me; I have no intention of sharing mine with you. I have no idea why you're hounding me about this money. Last time I checked, you were married to Tracy Quartermaine.

Nikolas: Did you do anything to help Emily, call the police?

Coleman: That girl didn't need protection, man.

Man: Oh, yes, you could definitely distract me from your brother -- and just about anything else.

Emily: You move that hand or lose it.

Man: Lighten up, cupcake. Be more like your boyfriend. It's obvious he doesn't mind sharing the wealth.

Patrick: Em, duck.

Man: Ugh!

Coleman: Break it up!

Man: You work for Corinthos, don't you? Oh!

Patrick: Wow.

Coleman: Yeah, so by the time the cops got there, you know, Buzz had already come conscious. But I got to hand it to Miss Quartermaine, man, I mean, that girl can hold her own. She swung that pool cue like a -- like a Louisville Slugger. It's no wonder her date was smiling when they left.

Patrick: Hey, slugger.

Robin: "Slugger"? That's a new one.

Emily: Yeah, it's a long story. So you were no slouch yourself, especially for someone who said straight out that he'd be no help. So how did you develop ninja billiard ball skills anyway?

Patrick: Yeah. I was a pretty good little league pitcher, but I quit in high school when I decided I wanted to be a surgeon. Didn't want to strain my tendons or wreck my motor skills. I got to watch the miracle hands. Not that you needed any help. Took care of old Buzz pretty easy on yourself.

Emily: Oh, God.

Patrick: You do that often?

Emily: Look at me. What do you think?

Patrick: Hey, sometimes still waters run deep, sometimes what you see is what you get. But I like surprises, and last night you were full of them.

Emily: Uh-huh, well, yeah, not just to you. I kind of surprised myself. You know, I've been doing a lot of that lately -- no pre-thinking just, bam, reaction.

Patrick: And that's why you're going to be a good doctor. It's the people who overthink and second-guess themselves and everyone else who wind up paralyzed.

Lainey: What about Sam McCall?

Manny: I understand why she hates me. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't feel regret for terrorizing that woman.

Lainey: And Jason Morgan?

Manny: He scares me.

Lainey: Fear can often trigger anger. Are you angry with Jason?

Ric: Relax, counselor. According to the medical evidence, Manny no longer has violent tendencies.

Justus: Is that why you're all over Alexis anytime she goes near him? You know, you might be committed to Manny’s defense, but you don't trust for one second that his miraculous change of personality is for real.

Ric: Lainey's almost done with Manny’s evaluation.

Alexis: I've got something. Jason Morgan tried to kill Manny. I filed the paperwork already. You need to arrest him immediately.

Jason: If you mean it -- I know this has been hard for you. If you really are ready to put Manny behind you, I will do everything I can to help you.

Sam: Hey, trust me, I am so sick of seeing that face in my head. I want to see you. I want to focus on us and our future together, the future I thought neither one of us were going to have.

Jason: You're a little too stubborn to let me die.

Sam: Ok, well, then, I guess it's time for me to get stubborn again about --

Jason: About?

Sam: About the thing I want most, you know?

Jason: Mm-hmm?

Sam: A family. So, how about that baby?

Jason: You know, in Hawaii, we thought we were running out of time, but things are just starting to get back to normal.

Sam: Ok. So what are you saying?

Jason: Well, I'm just saying that, you know, the pressure's off. We don't really have to rush into anything.

Sam: All right. You know, whenever the topic of "baby" comes up for discussion, you seem to get maybe a little bit uncomfortable. Do you not want this anymore? Do you not want a baby?

Jason: No, it's not that I don't want to.

Sam: Look, I know that our lives have been chaotic in the past few months, and I can't imagine going through any of this pregnant because that would be awful, but there will never be a perfect time. Starting a family is like taking a leap of faith, an act of love and trust and commitment and -- maybe that's it.

Jason: What?

Sam: Maybe it's too much commitment.

Jason: No. No, I'm already committed to you for life, with or without a family.

Sam: Ok, well, then are you scared because maybe having a baby's a little bit too much responsibility for you? Because if that's what you're thinking, Jason, you are going to be the most wonderful father that I have ever seen. You already have been to children who aren't even your own biolo-- is it me? Is it my parenting skills that you're doubting?

Jason: No, no, I -- ok, I'm worried about your health. You know, last year, Dr. Meadows said that we should wait at least one year before we start trying again. And I know that I couldn't say no when I thought I was going to be -- but now we know for sure and I just -- I want to wait. I don't want to put you at risk.

Sam: But you take chances for Sonny all the time. Why can't I do the same for our family?

Nikolas: Hey, Robin.

Robin: Hey.

Nikolas: Hey. Have you seen Emily around?

Robin: She is working on this floor, so she's around here somewhere. You can just wait if you like.

Nikolas: Yeah, yeah, I will. Um, what do you know about this Patrick Drake guy?

Robin: Oh, him again?

Nikolas: Yeah.

Robin: Ok, let's see -- he is a brilliant surgeon, which if you ask him he will be oh-so-happy to tell you about, with this overinflated ego and the morals of a dog in heat. That's an apt comparison, by the way.

Nikolas: Ok.

Elizabeth: Hey, Nikolas.

Nikolas: Hey, hey. Have you seen Emily? Have you seen her around?

Elizabeth: Yeah, just a few minutes ago. Why?

Nikolas: Well, I was just with Lucky and apparently she got into some sort of trouble last night. I just want to make sure she's ok.

Elizabeth: Yeah. See for yourself.

Emily: I can personally attest that your hands are every bit as good as you claim.

Patrick: You haven't begun to experience the scope of my talent. I could show you some more handiwork talent.

Emily: Oh, "handiwork." That's good.

Nikolas: Wait, come on, you can't be serious. You can't be buying these lines. Come on.

Patrick: Who's this, the conversation police?

Emily: It's my ex-husband.

Patrick: Oh, no wonder he looks so sour. I'm sorry, buddy, your loss is my gain. Your ex is the definition of "fire," and I'm looking forward to making her even hotter.

Emily: Whoa! Nikolas! What are you doing? Stop!

Patrick: You Neanderthal. Look what you made me do to my hand.

Dillon: Oh, hey! You know, if you're going to summon certain people at a certain time, the least you could do is show up. I mean, who knows, we might have better things to do.

Lulu: Yeah, like me. I'm so out of here.

Tracy: Sit.

Skye: Well, whatever it is, you seem alarmingly sure of yourself.

Tracy: With very good reason.

Dillon: Wow. Whoa. It's obvious somebody's about to burst, so why don't you just go ahead and spill it?

Tracy: Well, actually, I'm waiting for my erstwhile husband. You know how I detest repeating myself. Well, here he comes now. My darling, your timing is a thing of wonder.

Luke: Alice, my love, can you scare me up a bone-dry martini and some of that moldy cheese I like?

Alice: Right away, Mr. Luke.

Tracy: Alice, don't even think about it.

Luke: What's this? What's going on here? Why are you people sitting around? Why do you look so radiant?

Dillon: Oh, she has "very good reason." Maybe we'll find out now.

Tracy: I just got the most fascinating phone call from Jax. Naughty, naughty. You've been blackmailing him.

Luke: He was there.

Tracy: And poof, he's gone. Which means you've lost your leverage. And by that, I mean the money that you were counting on to bludgeon me with has evaporated. Pass the bludgeon.

Carly: How was the sonogram?

Courtney: Well, I'm healthy. So's the baby.

Carly: Oh, great!

Courtney: Yeah.

Carly: Why don't you look happier?

Courtney: Nikolas and I had a fight.

Carly: Oh.

Courtney: You know, a big one.

Carly: Want to sit down and talk? What happened?

Courtney: Well, you know that first paternity test that named Jax as the baby's father?

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Courtney: He rigged it.

Carly: Really?

Courtney: Yeah. Nice, huh?

Carly: Wow. So, um, did he rig the second one, too?

Courtney: Well, that's the thing. What Jax did was wrong, all right, but Jax is the baby's father. You know, I just -- I don't want to hold a grudge, you know? I want to be able to forgive him and try to be co-parents that get along for the baby's sake.

Carly: Well, I agree with that.

Courtney: Well, Nikolas doesn’t. He doesn’t. He wants this to be the thing that drives Jax out of our lives, but it's not realistic, you know? I can't keep Jax away from his child.

Carly: No.

Courtney: And this whole -- this whole conflict, it's just making me crazy. I --

Carly: I can see that. Sorry.

Courtney: What should I do?

Carly: Well, you got a lot of stress going on, and that's not good for the baby, and that should be your first priority, so you want my advice?

Courtney: Please.

Carly: Leave Nikolas. Run, don't walk, back to Jax.

Tracy: Here is how things are going to be from now on. You are going to start showing respect and minding your manners or you can take your ungrateful butt right back to Granny Leslie. You are going to keep her on a very short leash or resign yourself to a very long life under my roof. You no longer pamper Mr. Luke. You pamper me, Miss Tracy. You stay away from my husband. No more dark corridors with whispered promises of romance. Luke is married to me for the duration. And you. If you let the smaller of your heads prevail --

Luke: Hey! Watch what you're calling small.

Tracy: And cheat on me, I will haul you into court and sue you for adultery and you will end up paying me alimony.

Lulu: Ok, sit on it, lady. My dad doesn't need you or your money. Right? Tell her, dad.

Tracy: Isn't that cute? Your offspring still has faith in you. You want to tell her the awful truth or shall I? Oh, what the heck, I'm on a roll. Without Jax under your papa's thumb, he has absolutely no power.

Lulu: Dad?

Luke: It's a temporary setback.

Tracy: Alice, what are you still doing here? You're a maid! Act like one!

Alice: Yes, ma'am, Miss Tracy.

Tracy: Oh, I like it. I'm going to leave you all to make the necessary mental adjustments.

Dillon: Um -- you're playing possum, right? That's what you're doing? You have some sort of great plan to take care of Genghis Mom over there?

Luke: Relax, Young Spielberg. A plan shall emerge.

Courtney: Wow. I mean, I'm surprised. I never expected you to encourage me to go back to Jax. You don't even like him.

Carly: No, he's not my favorite person, but my objection to you marrying Jax was because I thought you should still be with Jason.

Courtney: Do you think I'm stupid?

Carly: What? What are you talking about?

Courtney: Carly, the only possible reason you could have for wanting me back together with Jax is so Nikolas would be free to go back to Emily.

Carly: Oh, Courtney --

Courtney: No, Carly, this isn't about what's best for me and the baby, it's about you wanting to keep Emily away from Sonny. I mean, it's so typical of you, seriously. I mean, all roads, however convoluted, all lead back to Sonny.

Carly: Ok, listen, I get that's the old Carly, all right, but what Emily and Sonny do or don't do is none of my business. I don't care. You're my friend and I was just trying to give you some advice.

Courtney: No, no, Carly, you were looking out for yourself as usual.

Justus: You've been awfully quiet since you wrapped up with Manny. Is something bothering you?

Lainey: His reactions seem sincere and spontaneous. He even agreed to take a lie-detector test.

Justus: You think he's faking it?

Lainey: I have nothing to base that on, except a feeling.

Justus: You going to note that in your evaluation?

Lainey: Well, there's no accurate medical term for "Manny gives me the creeps."

Justus: You know what, we need to get our minds off work, so we're switching off our cell phones, our P.D.A.’s, and I'm taking you to lunch.

Lainey: I should probably protest your proprietary attitude, but I think I will just say yes.

Ric: You know, I'm sure you've thought about this, but going after Jason might blow up in your face. Durant could turn it around and use it against you and say that you're trying to bully Jason into giving the testimony that you want.

Alexis: What are the odds that Durant is ever going to paint Jason as a victim? I've given him the opportunity to arrest Jason. There's no way he's going to pass that up.

Jason: You get to take any risk you want, but all I'm saying, if waiting a little while would guarantee that our baby and you would have a better chance --

Sam: Well, all I'm saying is I don't want to wait. I don't want the fear of loss to rule my life anymore, Jason. Getting you back taught me a valuable lesson -- you got to go for it, just grab on to all the joy while you can while it's here. I don't know what's going to happen from now until next June. For all we know, the world could end. But what I do know is we are here together right now and I know in my heart that having your child won't hurt me. Trust me on this, please? I know I'm right.

Jason: I do trust you.

Sam: Good.

[Knock on door]

Det. Rodriguez: PCPD. Open up.

Jason: Yeah?

Det. Rodriguez: Jason Morgan, you're under arrest for the attempted murder of Manny Ruiz.

Luke: Thank you, my angel.

Alice: Mm-hmm.

Tracy: Alice! I need you!

Alice: Scheme fast. I'm not going to last long in this house with Tracy reigning unchecked.

Lulu: Ok, I think you and I need to come clean.

Skye: What's the punch line?

Lulu: Ok, this is not me apologizing for anything that I've done.

Skye: Perish the thought.

Lulu: Why would I trust you from the start? To me, you are just some chick trying to get over on my dad, and I'm protective of my mother. You can understand that, can't you?

[Doorbell rings]

Skye: What changed?

Lulu: I saw her, for one thing, and I realized that it's not going to be a "happily ever after" with my dad. So if I have to choose between you and Tracy, I'd pick you any day.

Skye: Well, I can't tell you how flattered I am.

Georgie: Hi.

Skye: Hi.

Georgie: Alice just muttered something about Tracy being "drunk with power"?

Dillon: Yeah. Well, I'll tell you one thing -- if this were a war movie, we'd be the tattered forces of the rebellion, outnumbered and outgunned and -- oh, my God.

Luke: What?

Dillon: That's it.

Luke: What?

Dillon: There was -- there was a great double feature on last night, "Casablanca" and "Suspicion." Are you familiar?

Luke: No, not so far, but keep going.

Dillon: Ok, well, "Suspicion" is all you need to worry about. Joan Fontaine, she plays an heiress. She's married to Cary Grant and she is convinced that he's trying to kill her, so by the end of the movie, she'll do anything she can to get him away from her.

Luke: I'm not yet seeing your vision.

Dillon: Luke, think about what I'm talking about here. Ok, the rich wife believes that the husband is going to kill her and she will do anything -- anything -- including shell out 15 mil -- to get him off her back.

Luke: Uh -- ah. Ah! I think you're onto something. Huh.

Nikolas: What happened?

Courtney: Oh, my God. I didn't know you were here. Did you let yourself in?

Nikolas: You gave me a key, remember? Want me to give it back?

Courtney: I was just saying that you surprised me. What happened to your mouth?

Nikolas: What? Oh, it's -- it's nothing. It was stupid. Emily got in some sort of trouble last night, I went to check on her, and --

Courtney: Oh, that's just great.

Nikolas: What?

Courtney: That's great, why, you and I have one fight and immediately you're trying to stick your nose in Emily’s business again.

Nikolas: Oh, come on, that's not fair.

Courtney: No, you know what's unfair, Nikolas, is that you -- you still want to be the hero in Emily’s life, yeah, but you want to try and force me to cut Jax out of my life.

Nikolas: I'm not trying to force anything, Courtney. I'm pointing out that Jax manipulated a paternity test and lied to your face and probably will go on lying. But you know what, if that's ok with you, if that's ok with you, far be it for me to interfere. You know, but for me, I'm not going to pretend like we're not being manipulated here. Jax wants us angry at each other and he'd like nothing more than to see us break up and you are playing right into his hands. But, hey, don't let me stop you.

Carly: If I had a white flag, I'd wave it.

Jax: To what extent, continued participation in the hotel? Works to your advantage, not mine.

Carly: That's not exactly true.

Jax: Oh, ok. Ok. What?

Carly: Courtney's pregnant, ok? Courtney is pregnant and her emotions are all over the place and she's confused and she needs someone that she can trust and confide in to help guide her. Well, who better to help her than me, her best friend?

Jax: What are you saying?

Courtney: I'll give her a nudge in your direction.

Jax: Oh, Carly, come on, give me a break. You hate me and she knows that. If you suddenly start advocating reconciliation, she's going to see right through that.

Carly: I'll simply be honest. Nikolas tries to act like he's common folk, but he's a Cassadine, just as self-entitled as Alexis and Helena and all the rest of them. Deep down he thinks he's better than everybody else, including Courtney, and when that surfaces, she will be devastated. You, on the other hand, you have proven your commitment to Courtney, you don't treat her like she's a prize, and you love her. I get that now.

Jax: Hmm. It's a pity I can't convince her of that.

Carly: Leave that up to me.

Alexis: You might want to head out. I've still got a lot of paperwork to do and I have to question Manny, so --

Ric: No, I'm co-counsel, remember? That means that we share the case equally.

Alexis: I'm having Jason arrested against your advice and I want you to know that I can handle the consequences alone.

Ric: Look, I've listened to your rationale, I accept your reasoning, and I'm still going to stand by you.

John: Well, well, well. Look who's back. Be prepared to stick around this time, hero. We got a police witness who heard you were trying to kill Manny Ruiz.

Sam: Jason, I left a message with Sonny and Justus. We'll get you out of here as soon as possible.

John: No, not this time, sweetheart. Jason's going to be held without bail in a nice, new cell we got all picked out for him, right next to Manny. Enjoy.

Tracy: There's room for improvement, but it's a start.

Luke: I hope that drink is laced with rat poison.

Tracy: Oh, yippee. My sore-loser husband. Hi, hon.

Luke: You have the gall to sit here and gloat after humiliating me in there in front of Skye and the staff and our children? You're a cold, heartless, horror of a woman, Tracy. Somebody should've killed you a long time ago. All it would take, really, is putting my hands around your throat, squeezing slowly, until you gasp and then you choke and then you're dead. I could get away with it, too. I could kill you right here, drag you down to the boathouse, and drop your lifeless body in the lake. Nobody would be the wiser.

[Luke chuckles]

Tracy: Did you hear that?

Alice: What?

Tracy: I -- I think Luke means to kill me.

Alice: I don't know what you're talking about. I didn't hear a thing.

Elizabeth: Hey.

Lucky: Hey.

Elizabeth: How come you wanted to meet me here, of all places?

Lucky: Well, I didn't think it'd be that big of a problem. I mean, your shift is over.

Elizabeth: We have a lot of laundry to do.

Lucky: Laundry can wait. I'm off-duty, and it's been way too long since we spent some time playing pool and dancing slow.

Elizabeth: We've never had an afternoon like that.

Lucky: Then that makes us way overdue.

Emily: I don't think there's any permanent damage.

Patrick: There better not be.

Emily: There you go.

Patrick: Ok, why don't you just stay away from me?

Nikolas: No, I'm here to apologize, ok? I had no right to jump into your conversation and I certainly had no right to hit you. I apologize.

Emily: No, it was a misunderstanding.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Emily: Right?

Patrick: If you say so.

Robin: Emily, a very large flower arrangement just arrived for you. You have good taste.

Nikolas: Not from me.

Emily: Oh, my God.

Robin: I should've known.

Patrick: I didn't send them, either. I'd love to take credit.

Emily: Wow, how intriguing.

Emily: "Thank you again for saving Michael. Sonny."

[Knock on door]

Carly: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry, and if there's anything I can do to make it --

Courtney: No, no, Carly, hey, hey, hey. I'm the one who should apologize. You know, look, I asked for your advice and then I bit your head off.

Carly: When I was pregnant with Morgan and insanely hormonal --

Courtney: Yeah.

Carly: You were really patient with me. So now it's my turn. What can I do for you?

Courtney: Honestly? I don't know.

Carly: Oh.

Courtney: I don't know. Here, sit. I don't know anything anymore. I mean, I -- I love Nikolas, you know, but we're fighting more and more, we're growing further and further apart. And then there's Jax, who's always there, relentless, charming. And -- I don't know, I know that I should be furious at him for what he did, but the truth is I can't stay mad at Jax, and I don't want to. So how do I choose?

Carly: Maybe you don't have to. I may have a solution.

Jason: There's nothing you can do to get me released right now. Just go home.

Sam: Jason --

Jason: Sam, please, I'm ok. Just go home.

Sam: No.

Jason: Just --

Sam: You idiot. That is your own witness. Why would you have him arrested?

John: Slow down. It wasn't my call. Alexis badgered Detective Beaudry into giving a statement. She went to the judge, he issued a warrant.

Sam: So it's Alexis. Ok.

Alexis: I'll just be a minute.

Sam: You evil, vindictive bitch.

Alexis: Sam, you need to control yourself.

Sam: No, don't tell me to control myself! You got Jason arrested!

Alexis: That's what happens when someone attempts to kill someone. He's where he needs to be.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Lulu: Is she really going to believe that you're trying to kill her?

Tracy: Luke?

Det. Rodriguez: You haven't spoken to Miss Quartermaine?

Sonny: Was Emily hurt?

Robin: Why were you so interested in who sent the flowers to Emily?

Nikolas: Sonny?

Ric: I want Sam arrested right now.

Alexis: No.

Sam: Forget it, lock me up and throw away the key.
