Robin: A father's work is never done.

Jax: Hey.

Robin: Hey.

Jax: Well, you know, I can't complain. When Little -- Little John looks at me and goes for my finger, there's nothing quite like it. It's amazing.

Robin: Hmm. Do you want to grab a cup of coffee with me?

Jax: Why, do I look like I need it?

Robin: Honestly, yes, you do.

Jax: Ok. Well, I'll take you up on it. The doctors -- they -- they want Little John for a while, anyway.

Robin: Did you write Carly down as John's backup emergency contact?

Jax: Yeah.

Robin: Jax, when are you going to realize she's setting you up?

Carly: Thanks for having these drawn up.

Justus: This goes against my better judgment, Carly.

Carly: Yeah, I know, you told me that last night.

Justus: I also mentioned that something of this magnitude cannot go ahead without Jax’s consent.

Carly: Stop worrying. Jax trusts me now. Excuse me.

Ric: Richard Lansing and Alexis Davis. We have an appointment to see Mr. Oliver.

Secretary: Yes, sir.

Ric: Thank you.

Alexis: In case I forgot to mention this, I'm really glad that you're with me on this, because if you didn't find that law firm, we wouldn't stand a chance.

Ric: Well, Walton-Bigelow is one of the oldest, most prestigious law firms in all of Manhattan. It just makes sense that Mikkos would have used them for all of his U.S. business.

Alexis: Sad to report that that's how my father felt when he arranged for my daughter -- which would be his granddaughter -- to be adopted, as if it were some sort of ordinary business transaction.

Ric: Well, the good news is that Edmund Oliver is still practicing. He's the one who handled the adoption. He can tell us where your daughter is.

Alexis: He is very close to retirement. What if he gets the facts wrong?

Man: I'm Edmund Oliver. How can I help you?

Alexis: I believe that you handled the adoption of my daughter.

Sam: Stan hasn't called yet. He must have hit a dead end.

Jason: Well, he found Danny’s birth certificate. He's going to find yours, too. Just give him some time.

Sam: Oh, I must have picked up the phone three times to tell him to stop looking.

[Knock on door]

Sam: Ok, why did you show up instead of calling? Is something wrong?

Carly: Jax can't deal with this right now. His hands are full with Little John.

Justus: And you think he's going to want you to handle this?

Carly: He will thank me one day.

Justus: I hate to bust your little bubble here, Carly, but can I remind you that you embezzled money from Jax when you were partners with him in Club 101?

Carly: Bygones, ok? Bygones. Jax and I have talked about it and he's let it go.

Justus: What about Sonny?

Carly: What about Sonny?

Justus: You and Sonny are forever tied, and him and Jax aren't exactly best friends, remember?

Carly: I'm not worried about that.

Justus: You tried to sabotage Jax’s wedding to Courtney.

Carly: Can we please stop with the recap of my darkest moments with Jax, please? Look, that's in the past. Little John has changed everything.

Justus: Oh, so you're sure about this, huh?

Carly: Courtney's not here to raise her little boy, so I'm stepping in. And Jax appreciates how much I love and care about that little boy. He doesn't see me an enemy anymore.

Justus: Maybe he resents the fact that you're drawing up a contract.

Carly: This has to be done. And I'm the one to do it.

Jax: Carly and I have resolved our differences. She's not going to double-cross me again.

Robin: And you know this because?

Jax: Because she loves Little John. She sincerely wants to help.

Robin: "Carly" and "sincere" don't mix.

Jax: You're relentless, you know that?

Robin: Yes, when it comes to a friend. After John's premature delivery and Courtney’s death, you being a new father -- that's a lot for you to deal with; which means you're vulnerable, and Carly will take advantage of that.

Jax: You know, a month ago, I would have agreed, but I've seen another side of Carly.

Robin: Exhaustion can make you hallucinate.

Jax: Carly's fiercely loyal to the people she loves. She really cares about John.

Robin: Ok, now you're scaring me.

Jax: Carly and Courtney were best friends, ok? And I'm -- I'm starting to understand why.

Robin: Ok, forget what happened in the past; forget that Carly hurt me, Jason, and Michael. Assume that's in the past. How did she become part owner of your hotel? Because she was upfront and honest or because she had an agenda?

Jax: Look, you don't see that Carly is --

Robin: If Carly’s willing to use her own children, why wouldn't she be willing to use yours? I'm just worried for you, Jax. If you're not careful, you and John could get hurt.

Patrick: You just g back on to your feet. Why not wait a few days before you get back on your soapbox?

Robin: Stay out of this.

Sam: All right, so what's the bad news?

Stan: There were only three girls born on May 11, 1980 in Maine and none of them was adopted.

Sam: Ok, well, then I was wrong. I was born someplace else.

Jason: Ok, what about private adoptions?

Stan: Those records would be sealed. I could try to locate them, but with what we have to go on, it's going to take a long time.

Jason: Ok, then I want you to start with private facilities -- clinics, hospitals, shelters -- anyplace that people might go for private adoptions. Support groups, family law attorneys, ones who have been practicing in the area since 1980.

Stan: Needle in a haystack, but I'll try.

Jason: Ok, thanks.

Stan: Right.

[Door opens and closes]

Sam: I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up. It's obvious my mother never wanted me to find her.

Edmund: I couldn't have arranged your daughter's adoption. I'm a contracts attorney.

Alexis: It would have been a favor to one of your clients -- the late Mikkos Cassadine. I'm his daughter.

Edmund: I remember Mr. Cassadine. But I also recall he had no daughter.

Alexis: I was illegitimate. At the time, my father referred to me as his niece. He arranged for me to be sent to a clinic in Chatham, Maine. I gave birth to a little girl on May 11, 1980, and records show that you handled the adoption.

Edmund: I'm sorry, Ms. --

Alexis: Davis. It was Davidovitch. Alexis Davidovitch.

Edmund: I'm sorry, none of this sounds familiar. Perhaps you should try the clinic in Maine.

Ric: Well, we did, and we found your name in the file.

Edmund: Any work I did for Mr. Cassadine is protected by client confidentiality.

Ric: Yes, of course it is. Excuse me for a second. I need to make a phone call. I'll be back.

[Opens and closes door]

Alexis: Mr. Oliver, you're my last hope. There's nowhere else that I can go to to get this information. I don't want to interfere or interrupt her life; I just want to find out if she's ok. Please? Would you please help me?

Ric: Yeah. Yeah, it looks like I'm going to need your help, after all.

Diego's voice: "Hi, Georgie. Thanks for your last letter. I've already read it eight times. Your words make it easier to get through my day here in prison. You're such a good writer. You'd be great at writing stories and novels."

Guy: Must be good news.

Georgie: Hey, Guy, you're back in town! When?

Guy: Yeah, I just transferred to P.C.U.

Georgie: Oh, my gosh! Dillon goes to P.C.U. Maybe he could show you around.

Guy: How is Dillon?

Georgie: Happy. So am I. We got married.

Guy: Congratulations -- I think. Aren't you a little young to get married? Not that I doubt your love.

Georgie: Ok, Dillon and I are sure of each other, and we've been through a lot. Mostly our families are trying to keep us apart. Don't get me started on his mother. And we're happy.

Guy: Well, I'm happy for you, Georgie.

Georgie: Thank you.

Guy: So is Dillon so far gone that he sends love notes to his wife?

Georgie: Oh, no, no, no. That's -- that's a letter from a -- a friend.

Lulu: Hey.

Lucas: Finally, reinforcements.

Dillon: Why? Where's Mike?

Lucas: Upstairs with a massive hangover.

Lulu: Well, you can't blame him. His daughter just died.

Lucas: I'm just covering for him. I don't want him to lose his job.

Lulu: Ok, my dad would never fire Mike for being too hung-over to work. He's not that big of a hypocrite.

Lucas: Yeah, just in case, I'm covering for him. And -- listen, guys, I really need your help. The waitresses didn't show --

Dillon: Put us to work, man.

Lucas: Take this to Lainey over there. And do me a favor. Take her order for me. I feel weird serving my therapist.

[Dillon laughs]

Lainey: If you want me to fill in at the conference, it'll have to be in the evening. Hold on. Hi.

Dillon: Hi.

Lainey: Cobb salad, no blue cheese, ranch dressing, extra tomatoes, and can you have a little cornbread on the side? Thank you. Yeah, Thursday’s fine. I'll be there at 6:00. Ok.

Lucas: Listen, can you man the kitchen for a while?

Lulu: Only if you swear not to tell the family, because they'll decide that I need to be kept busy, and next think you know, I'll be waiting tables here on a permanent basis.

Lucas: Uh-huh, and that would be such a bad thing?

Lulu: Food service is not my thing. Besides, this place is boring. We should get a pool table and apply for a liquor license like Jake’s. That place is fun.

Lucas: Yeah, if you're into bar fights.

Patrick: Do you ever get tired of sharing your enlightened opinions with whoever will listen?

Robin: I'm having a private conversation with a friend.

Patrick: How do you do it?

Jax: What?

Patrick: Keep a straight face while she's lecturing you. Most of us burst out laughing or just walk away.

Robin: Oh, walking away would be good. Why don't you do that right now?

Jax: Guess he doesn't realize that we've known each other for a really long time, huh?

Robin: Mm-hmm.

Jax: He seems quite smitten with you.

Robin: Like I said, exhaustion can cause you to hallucinate.

Jax: Oh, no, I think Dr. Drake was a little concerned that there -- you know, there could be something going on between us. No, I think he was -- he was coming over to stake his claim. Really.

Robin: I don't think so. He just likes to bug me. Anyway, don't change the subject. We were talking about you and how your life is in danger of being ruined by Carly. Why don't you tell her to take a hike --?

Carly: Never fear, Carly’s here to save you from Robin.

[Robin sighs]

Carly: Hey, look, there's something I want you to see, so you have to come with me, ok?

Jax: Really?

Carly: Yeah.

Robin: Carly, isn't there anyone else's life that you could mess with right now? I mean, this man is grieving. Don't you have the decency to leave him alone?

Carly: Don't you have the decency to mind your own business?

Jax: What is it that you want me to see?

Carly: I'm not going to tell you.  You have to trust me.

Jax: Lead the way, I'll just follow you.

Carly: Ok.

Jax: I'll see you later.

Patrick: That's got to hurt.

Jason: You're assuming your mother didn't want you to be able to find her, but there could be a lot of reasons for these dead ends.

Sam: True.

Jason: And we're going to get the answers when we find her.

Sam: If we find her. I honestly -- I just -- I can't think about this anymore. I need something to put it out of my mind.

Jason: Stay -- stay away from that.

Sam: What do you mean, "Stay away from that"?

Jason: Stay away from it.

Sam: You went grocery shopping, which is an event in itself and now I can't go in the bag?

Jason: Ok, no, no, you're not -- no, no, no, no, no.

Sam: Come on!

Jason: Go upstairs and just give me 15 minutes, ok?

Sam: 15 minutes? What takes 15 minutes? Give me a hint.

Jason: Well, why don't you stop asking questions? Go upstairs. I'm trying to do something here.

Sam: Have I told you how wonderful you are?

Jason: Have I told you how weak that is?

Sam: Stop.

Jason: And you're going to go upstairs. Go, get out of here.

Sam: Ok. Ok.

Jason: Go.

[Jason sighs]

Alexis: Mr. Oliver, I am so grateful for what you have already done for me. You had me sent to a good and a safe facility, and I have every reason to believe you had the baby placed in a fine home.

Edmund: I can't comment on any work I did for the late Mikkos Cassadine.

Alexis: I don't want to disrupt her life; I just want to know that she's all right. I promise you, I won't contact her. I just -- I want closure.

Edmund: I can't breach client confidentiality for any reason.

Alexis: My father is dead. He can't sue you from the grave.

Edmund: I'm sorry, I can't help you. All of my Cassadine records are confidential. Besides, they were warehoused many years ago.

Ric: You know what, Mr. Oliver? We completely understand your position. Thank you so much for your valuable time.

Edmund: Have a good day.

Ric: Come on. It's all right. Come on, let's go.

Alexis: He was the only lead that we had.

Ric: Oliver was never going to give us those files, ok? Never going to give us any information. But she might. Hey!

Woman: Ricky Lansing. Oh, it's been far too long.

[Ric chuckles]

Carly: Admit it. That house is perfect for you and Little John.

Jax: Right, yeah.

Carly: Admit it.

Jax: I just don't want to, you know, rush into anything.

Carly: Oh, come on! What are you talking about? The house is perfect. It has four bedrooms; it has a perfect kitchen and living room. The backyard's amazing. The hedges are so high, no one can see in, except for us, of course.

Jax: You'd make a really good real estate broker.

Carly: Then prove it. Buy it before someone else snatches it up.

Jax: I don't think the market's that hot.

Carly: There are tons of people over there looking at that house. And it would be bought by now if it weren't for me.

Jax: Do I want to know this?

Carly: I just happened to tell Leticia that whenever she sees people pull up out front that she should take the kids out back and have them scream and yell, make tons of noise, and throw some things over the fence.

Jax: Oh, I'm sure the boys really enjoy that.

Carly: Yeah, Leticia said she heard some potential buyers saying that there were two little monsters that live next door.

Jax: That's very devious of you.

Carly: Motivated. I don't want anyone else living there besides you and Little John.

Jax: Oh, that reminds me. You know what? I have some paperwork. I put you down as John's emergency contact. I hope that's ok.

Carly: Well, sure. Yeah.

Jax: Just -- you know, just sign there and there.

Carly: I have something for you to sign. There you go.

Jax: Wait, this is hotel business.

Carly: Yeah.

Jax: My God -- Robin -- Robin was right about you. No, all this love and concern for Little John is just a smokescreen to try to steal my hotel from me.

Robin: Carly is the most selfish person that I have ever met, and she always has an agenda. And right now, she's using Jax because he's vulnerable.

Patrick: You're jealous.

Robin: Jealous? Of Jax? He's my friend.

Patrick: Not of the men around Carly, but the way she leads her life.

Robin: Oh, right, because I've always wanted to be just like Carly.

Patrick: Carly knows what she wants. She's not worried about the consequences. That annoys you because you wish you could do the same. She goes to get it, but you don't.

Robin: You want to see me go and get it?

Woman: You look great, Ricky.

Ric: You look better.

Woman: We always talked about working here in the big city, didn't we?

Ric: Yeah.

Woman: The arts, the theater, the nightlife. It is a lot more exciting than Boston.

Ric: Yeah, absolutely. Claire and I went to Harvard together.

Claire: Oh, I owe Ricky big-time for all those late-night sessions in our law journal days.

Ric: Yeah. Yeah, I would say so. Claire's a junior partner here at Walton-Bigelow. I just thought I'd give her a call and see if she'd come down and meet me.

Claire: Claire Lundquist.

Ric: I'm so sorry. Yeah, I'm sitting here talking this whole time. Claire Lundquist, obviously. This is my cousin, Frances Runkle. Frances is in town for a vacation in New York, so I just thought she'd kind of tag along and follow me around for my day.

Claire: I bet all your friends had crushes on him, didn't they?

Alexis: Actually, I think it was Ric who did the flirting.

Ric: Hey, listen -- um -- I'd love to catch up. Do you have time for a drink?

Claire: Absolutely.

Ric: Ok.

Alexis: Good. Fun to sit in on you two reminiscing about the school days, and he used to talk about Harvard all the time, how the girls were very smart, but they weren't very pretty.

Ric: I never -- never said that.

Alexis: But you didn't tell me you had such a pretty friend.

Ric: Yeah -- you know what, we don't want to bore you, Frances.

Alexis: Oh.

Ric: So why don't we all go down the elevator together, and then you can go shopping, and we'll meet you later. Ok?

Alexis: Great. That sounds fun.

Ric: Good.

Alexis: Ok.

Ric: Ok. Hey, do you remember that time we did moot court, and we took opposite sides of the libel case?

Claire: Oh, you were so good; I was totally intimidated.

Ric: No, you were brilliant. I've never seen litigating like that in my life. I was thinking of giving it up.

Claire: Oh --

[Music plays]

Sam: Jason?

Singer: Do I need to be invisible

Sam: Wow.

Singer: To just survive

Sam: Now, this is romantic and wonderful. I -- I can't believe you went through all this trouble.

Jason: You deserve it.

Sam: You are so sweet.

Jason: Uh -- "sweet"?

Sam: Ok.

[Sam laughs]

Sam: Ok, you're strong and manly.

Singer: Leave me wondering baby, it's just you and me

Sam: Seriously, you have the sweetest heart.

Singer: We got a thing they can't shake maybe it's a little hard

Jason: I know how alone you must feel. You know, losing Danny, and now finding out that you were adopted. I just want you to know that -- that you have me. We're a family. And as soon as you're ready, I want us to get married.

Patrick: Well, Dr. Scorpio, you are full of surprises.

Robin: You do remember that I'm H.I.V.-positive? Are you worried about kissing me?

Patrick: Not in the slightest. I'm a doctor. I know the facts. I'm just glad you got out of your own way and did what you've been wanting to do since we met.

Robin: I think I'm getting used to you now.

Patrick: What does that mean?

[Robin chuckles]

Robin: Well, before your lame come-ons used to annoy me, and now I don't know whether or not to feel sorry for you or just laugh.

Patrick: Well, maybe we should kiss again to help you make up your mind.

Robin: I'll do one better. I'll take you out to dinner.

Patrick: Are you going to be looking at your watch the whole time, warning me I have an hour before you walk out?

Robin: This is a sincere invitation, not payback for a patient. I'm asking because it's what I want, and I'm going after it.

Patrick: Then I accept with pleasure.

Jax: I was a fool to buy into your act. I mean, I honestly thought that you were trying to be sincere.

Carly: I was being sincere.

Jax: You're trying to trick me into signing away my hotel and using John's birth as a distraction.

Carly: I would never do that! I love that little boy, and I just want to help him -- just like I want to help you, with the hotel.

Jax: You're not -- you're not -- you're not trying to steal my hotel?

Carly: Jax, read it. It's the paperwork for the new plumbing system for the hotel. The papers have to be filed by tomorrow. And I know that you didn't have time to even think about it with everything going on with Little John at the hospital. And I know you didn't want to worry about a big, expensive renovation. And Justus just wanted to pass on it, but I knew you were leaning towards giving it the go-ahead, so I did it anyway. Sorry for trying to help.

Jax: Oh, I forgot about the plumbing -- you know, with everything that's been going on, with Courtney and Little John.

Carly: This is where you say "I'm sorry, I was wrong." You know, you grovel for forgiveness.

Jax: Well, how much groveling do you need? Because it's a little hard to speak with a foot in my mouth.

Carly: You could try "I'm sorry, Carly. Didn't mean to jump to conclusions."

Jax: I'm sorry, Carly. I didn't mean to jump to conclusions. And I hope that we can just go back to the way things were, just be friends.

Carly: We need to sit and talk about something. Robin hates me. And she will poison you against me any chance she gets, which is obviously what happened here today.

Jax: Right.

Carly: And I can't -- I can't deal with that, so you're going to have to make a choice. You can choose Robin or you can choose to believe me. So if you choose Robin, that's fine, but then I'm going to steer clear of the hospital when you're there, and I'm not going to see you at the hotel, and everything will be fine.

Jax: No, Robin was wrong. And -- and I was wrong. I do trust you. It's just, you know, given our history, it's going to take a little bit of time. I do want you to be a part of John's life.

Carly: Good. Thanks.

Jax: So how can I make it up to you?

Carly: You could buy the house next door.

Jax: I'll -- I'll think about it.

Carly: Ok.

Jax: But in the meantime, since they won't let us go back to see Little John, how about the next best thing? How about I take you to one of the best restaurants in town for dinner? Our very own Metro Court.

Carly: Wow. I thought you'd never ask.

Claire: What files are you looking for?

Ric: Paperwork on a personal adoption that took place on May 11, 1980 in Chatham, Maine.

Claire: Is this personal?

Ric: I've been retained by Nikolas Cassadine. He's searching for a potential cousin. His grandfather Mikkos handled the adoption, as -- as well as your senior partner, but Mr. Oliver doesn't seem to want to give me that information.

Man: Hey, babe, can I treat you to a drink?

Alexis: Oh, no, thank you.

Man: No? A beautiful lady --

Alexis: Unless you want to be sued for sexual harassment, I suggest you back off.

Claire: The files must be in the archives. It shouldn't be a problem to find them.

Ric: Look, I don't want you to get in any trouble.

Claire: Don't worry. What are old friends for, hmm? Your wife's a very lucky woman, Ricky. I hope she knows that.

Ric: Yeah, I hope she does, too.

Claire: Give me 30 minutes.

Ric: Thanks.

Alexis: I hope whatever it was that you were doing with Claire had something to do with finding my daughter.

Sam: I can't wait to marry you.

Jason: Let's go to Hawaii. Let's go.

Sam: I would love to. I can’t. Not now. I just -- I don't think it would be fair to you.

Lulu: Chicken pot pie? I'm not supposed to make this from scratch, am I? Hey, I'm sorry, but I'm in charge of the kitchen.

Justus: Then you should be in there. My girlfriend is starving. Cooking is the only way to keep her alive.

Lulu: Ok, wait, she ordered it, like, 10 minutes ago.

Justus: 25.

Lulu: But who's counting?

Dillon: Ok, we're just trying to work together here.

Justus: My favorite shrimp dish.

Lainey: Oh. I would, but I am allergic to shellfish. I'm so sorry. Actually, I just ordered a Cobb salad with no blue cheese. Do you think that maybe you could fix that for me?

Justus: A Cobb salad with no blue cheese.

Lainey: Please, boyfriend? Extra tomatoes?

Justus: Your wish is my command.

Lulu: It's called organization, Dillon. You can't have people trooping in and out of the kitchen. We're going to get the orders mixed up.

Dillon: Justus is just helping Lainey. It's not a big deal. Let it go.

Lulu: What? I'm sorry, are you my boss or something? Elvis never tells me what to do.

Dillon: Ok, there is no Elvis.

Lulu: How would you know?

Lucas: Lulu, you know, who cares that you don't have a boyfriend yet? I mean, I -- I don't have one, either.

Lulu: Ok, fine. I invented Elvis because I'm sick of everyone asking me if I'm dating someone. Everything thinks it's so easy to meet someone special, but it's not.

Lucas: Tell me about it.

Dillon: Ok, you do have to make an effort, though. You know, put yourselves out there a little.

Lucas: You know, that's -- that's easy for you to say. You weren't slugged with a pipe the last time you tried to flirt.

Lulu: Are you scared to try again?

Lucas: I'm more worried that Frank is still out there, free to prey on other people.

Georgie: Diego was a friend of mine, and he got in some serious trouble and went to prison. I write him. He says it helps. No big deal.

Guy: You have a good heart, Georgie.

Georgie: Dillon says I'm delusional.

Guy: Does he know that you're keeping in touch with Diego?

Georgie: No. Do me a favor and don't tell him?

Guy: Hmm. Your secret's safe with me.

Georgie: Thank you. Now, I'm going to return the favor and do something nice for you.

Guy: Take me to dinner?

Georgie: Better. I know this is politically incorrect, and I'm sorry, but my cousin Lucas is gay. He just came out. And --

Guy: And you think we'd make a good couple because we're both gay males under 90.

Georgie: It sounds that way, doesn't it? No, you and Lucas are both so cute and so nice, and I think you guys would really get along.

Guy: No offense, but I hate being set up on blind dates.

Georgie: I know. But if you give it a chance, you just might like each other.

Guy: All right. Well, lucky for me, I have a new job to get to. Otherwise, you'd have me and your cousin registering for wedding gifts.

Georgie: Fine. Welcome back to town.

Guy: Thanks. I'll see you.

Georgie: Yep. And I'm still not giving up on you and Lucas.

Carly: Ok, I'm late. I'm late. Has anyone seen my cell phone?

Michael: No. You look great.

Carly: Thanks. Ooh, there it is.

Michael: Where are you going?

Carly: To dinner with Jax.

Michael: Is it a date?

Carly: No, it's not a date. Jax is taking me to dinner to thank me for helping him with Little John. Not that it's any of your business.

Michael: Well, dad doesn't like Jax.

Carly: Yeah, well, you know what? Your dad and I don't always have to be friends with the same people.

Michael: So Jax is just your friend?

Carly: Yes, honey, Jax is just my friend. Jax is my business partner, and he's also the father of your little cousin. So I expect you to be nice to him, ok? I love you.

Michael: Love you, too.

Carly: You be good for Leticia. I love you, sweetie. Go to bed when Leticia asks you to go to bed, all right?

Michael: You're coming back late?

Carly: Good night, Michael.

[Door closes]

Morgan: Two, three, four.

Michael: I need to see you. It's important.

Morgan: What are you doing?

Sam: How can you marry me when you don't even know who I really am?

Jason: It doesn't matter to me that you were adopted.

Sam: I know, but my past, my family -- everything is a blank slate.

Jason: If you want to wait, that's cool. But I already know who you are.

Sam: I know, but I'm -- I'm just saying that we've already started this journey into figuring out what my past is, and maybe we should wait until we resolve it one way or another.

Jason: But you know that finding your mother is not going to change who you are or what we've been through.

Sam: You're right. Who I am and what we share. It's all that matters.

Ric: The whole purpose of this exercise is to help you find your daughter.

Alexis: Yes, I know that, but you didn't have to enjoy yourself quite so much in the process. What convenient explanation do you have for referring to me as your cousin Frances?

Ric: To make it seem like a professional favor. This way, Claire is more inclined to help us out.

Alexis: Ok. You could have told me that you knew a lawyer that worked at Oliver’s firm.

Ric: Alexis, I was saving Claire as a last resort in case Oliver wasn't going to give us the information, which I knew he wouldn’t. I know how important this is to you.

Alexis: Thank you.

Ric: And in a way, I feel like I'm trying to right a wrong in my own past. If my mother had tried to track me down the way you're trying to track down your daughter right now, then maybe I would have been able to let go of the resentment that I've been carrying around for all these years.

Alexis: I get it. I do.

Ric: Ok.

Alexis: What if Claire wants you to show your gratitude?

Ric: Oh, God. You know what? We have never been more than friends. And if you would have eavesdropped a little bit better, you would have known that by now.

Alexis: Ok, if you say so, Ricky.

Ric: Here she comes. Ok, hide, please?

Alexis: Oh, for God's sake.

Ric: Hey, listen, that's my wife right there. Don't go near her. I know people who could have you killed.

Alexis: Hmm.

Ric: Hey.

Claire: This is it. The complete file on the Cassadine baby who was given up for adoption.

Lainey: Mmm.

Justus: I'm sorry it took a little longer than expected.

Lainey: This looks fantastic. Did you make this yourself?

Justus: Actually, I walked all the way to the Metro Court, ordered it, and walked all the way back.

Lainey: Well -- so, can I expect this treatment all the time, now that we're boyfriend and girlfriend?

Justus: No, from now on, the two of us are going to order in. Come on.

Georgie: Hello, everyone.

Lucas: Where have you been? I left you about five messages. We needed your help.

Georgie: I'm really sorry. I ran into an old friend, and I want you to meet him.

Lucas: Ok, who?

Georgie: Guy Richardson.

Dillon: Guy?

Georgie: Guy.

Dillon: Like Guy, gay Guy? Guy's perfect, yeah.

Georgie: Yeah.

Lulu: Like, perfect, how?

Georgie: He's a gay friend of mine, and I think you two would be really cute together.

Lucas: No. No.

Georgie: No, wait, wait -- just listen, ok? And keep an open mind, please? Guy is funny, smart, kind, and just a terrific person. And he's totally cool with being gay. So even if you guys don't, you know, like like each other --

Guy: Excuse me.

Georgie: He's just a really awesome friend to have.

Lucas: Ok, let me talk to you for one second. Does Guy even want to be set up?

Georgie: Well, not exactly. He's kind of against the whole blind date thing, but that's only because he doesn't know how great you are.

Lucas: All right, and that's why they call it a blind date.

Georgie: Right.

Lucas: Ok. Besides the fact that we're both young and gay -- I mean, give me one good reason why we'd like each other?

Georgie: That is what you'd find out when you went out with him. Trust me, Lucas; you guys have lots in common.

Michael: We have a situation that needs to be addressed. My mom is out on a date with Jax, and my dad needs to be notified immediately.

Max: I don't know if I can get ahold of Sonny. I mean, your dad -- he -- ahem -- told me he didn't want to be bothered while he was away.

Michael: Well, you'd better do something because mom gets carried away sometimes. And if she's with Jax, that means trouble.

Patrick: Let's see, I think I'll have the caviar, the lobster, and a glass of the 1848 port.

Robin: Hmm.

Patrick: This is your treat, right?

Robin: Well, order anything you want, but if we go over my credit limit, we'll have to be washing dishes in the back after.

Patrick: Oh, and ruin these fine surgical hands? I don't think so. I'll have the broiled chicken.

Robin: Sounds better. Oh, my God.

Carly: Thank you.

Jax: You're welcome.

Carly: Ok. So the plumbing renovations isn't going to affect us at all. They said they could do it in stages. And the bid came in a lot --

Jax: Ok.

Carly: You've got to be kidding me. Little miss can't-be-wrong decided to grace us with her presence.

Jax: Would you like to go somewhere else?

Carly: No way. This should be fun.

Jax: Oh, Carly, I know you enjoy the smell of blood, but can we just have a civilized evening without causing a scene at my -- our hotel?

Carly: Scenes are for amateurs. I have something else in mind.

Jax: Oh.

Sam: Thank you.

Jason: No one can make this decision for you. Just like no one could make me reconcile with my parents until I was ready. You just -- you have to be ready.

Sam: I've been trying to imagine what it would be like carrying this secret around for the rest of my life, and I don't -- I don't know if I could do it, Jason. Knowing that my birth mother is out there somewhere, I think would just eat away at me. And then again, I -- I think it's not like she hasn't had 25 years to look for me, right?

[Knock on door]

Jason: Hey.

Stan: Hey. I think I've zeroed in on your place of birth.

Jason: That'll make it a lot easier to find out who put you up for adoption.

Ric: Thanks a lot, Claire. I owe you one.

Claire: Ah, call it even. I owe you big-time for all your help in law school.

Ric: Listen, I'll get this back to you ASAP.

Claire: I hope it helps.

Ric: Thanks.  I think you should be the one to open this.

Alexis: The truth about my baby is in this file.

Ric: Do you want to open it?

Alexis: Suddenly, I'm not so sure that I should.  Oh, my God, that's impossible.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Robin: I am so sick of your mouth. If you don't shut it, I'm going to --

Carly: You're going to what?

Sonny: Is it safe to say you're not disappointed we didn't go to the island?

Stan: You were born in a small clinic in Chatham, Maine.

Sam: I guess I may be able to find my birth mother after all.

Ric: What's wrong?
