General Hospital Transcript Thursday 3/9/06
Proofread by Brian
Robin: I didn't hear you order champagne -- not that I'm objecting. I actually really like champagne.
Patrick: I wish I could take credit, but I didnít.
Waitress: Compliments of Carly Corinthos.
Robin: Oh, thank you, no. I don't -- no. No, I don't want it.
Patrick: You just said you love champagne, and it's a great year.
Robin: No. She probably poisoned it or something. Excuse me.
Patrick: Maybe it's a peace offering.
Robin: Thank you, but no, thank you -- and have a lovely evening.
Carly: What's the problem? Can't hold your liquor? Afraid it's going to make you loosen up a little bit and become a real woman?
Robin: You know what? I am so sick of your mouth. If you don't shut it --
Carly: You're going to what? Shut it for me?
Jax: Oh, ok, you know what?
Carly: I would love to see you try.
Jax: Ok --
Carly: Come on.
Emily: Sonny. Oh, this is beautiful.
Sonny: Glad you like it.
Emily: Wow. I want to see if we can smell the jasmine from up here.
Sonny: Go ahead, go ahead. So, is it safe to say that you're not disappointed we didn't go to the island?
Emily: Disappointed? How could anyone be disappointed in the coast of Spain?
Sonny: You know what?
Sonny: It's beautiful -- you'll fit right in. I'm glad we were able to get out of town, you know, because here we can be strangers to everyone except each other.
Sam: 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]
Stan: I think I zeroed in on your place of birth.
Jason: That'll make it a lot easier to find out who put you up for adoption.
Sam: What have you got?
Stan: What little paper trail there is indicates that you were born in a small clinic in Chatham, Maine.
Sam: Wow. Ok, the -- the clinic must have records, right? I guess I may be able to find my birth mother after all.
Ric: What's wrong? Alexis, let me -- sweetheart, let me see. Alexis, I'm so sorry.
Alexis: Well, now I know. My daughter's dead.
Lucas: Finally, the dishes are done. What, are you kidding me?
Dillon: It's a diner. What do you want from me?
Lucas: Wait, where's Georgie?
Dillon: She split. She had a test tomorrow.
Lucas: You know, I hope that's what's really going on and she's not trying to set me up with that guy.
Dillon: Guy is terrific and he's funny, and like you, he could use somebody to relate to. You could do a lot worse than have him as a friend and vice versa.
Frank: To new friends.
Guy: New friends.
Lulu: Why are you so resistant to meeting Georgieís friend?
Lucas: Well, do you want to meet every guy that you hear about just because he's a guy?
Lucas: Neither do I.
Lulu: Somebody's touchy.
Dillon: You don't have to start dating. And you know what? If you're both lonely, there's nothing wrong with a little cup of coffee.
Lucas: There are more difficult things than being alone.
Sonny: It's not right.
Emily: Wait, Sonny. Please don't backtrack on me again.
Sonny: No, no, I'm not talking -- it's not -- it's the fact that we have to sneak around, hiding what we are to each other.
Emily: It's better than not being together.
Sonny: But there's a catch-22. I mean, it's not ideal, but if you open up, let everybody know, you know, how you feel, then you're subjected to other people's opinions and judgments and -- you deserve so much better than that.
Emily: Sonny, it's not -- it's not the judgments that bother me. It's being a catalyst for pain and anger. But it doesn't matter now, because we are -- we're in this beautiful city. We have the hillsides and the ocean. And best of all, we have each other. And there's no reason to pretend that we're not together, loving every minute.
Sonny: You're right. Yeah, decirle que empieza la musica.
Emily: Wait, what -- what was that about?
Sonny: What was what about?
Emily: You know what I'm --
Sonny: Nothing. It's all right. You want some wine?
Emily: Yeah, I'd love some wine.
Sonny: All right. I hope you don't mind. I took the liberty of planning our day tomorrow.
Emily: I don't mind. Tell me.
Sonny: Ok. We're going to rent a car, ok, and I'm feeling some small, fast convertible --
Sonny: Right, so I can see the wind blowing in your hair, all right, as we drive down the coast.
Emily: Wait, wait. What, while you drive?
Emily: Ok, I don't -- I don't think I've ever seen such a thing.
Sonny: Well, that's the point, you know? Doing things we've never done, going to places we've never gone before, foods we've never eaten. You're like no one I've ever known. Which makes sense that, you know, every experience with you is going to be different.
Alexis: Awful irony in all of this. Huh. When I think about the lengths that I went to to keep Kristina safe from Sonny's criminal life -- keeping her paternity a secret all that time as a means of keeping her safe from what was a very clear and very obvious danger. And then my firstborn gets hit by a car at the age of 3 on an ordinary day in the life of a normal family. I should never have given her up. If I had raised her, if I had taken care of her, she would be alive today.
Ric: Do not take this on yourself, ok? It was an accident, Alexis. It was tragic, but it was not your fault. Nor was this the result of anything that you did.
Alexis: I didn't even see a picture. I can't breathe; I have to get out of here.
Ric: All right, listen to me, listen, listen -- I want -- I want us to stay here in the city at my family's apartment tonight.
Ric: I don't think that we should go home. With the way you're feeling --
Alexis: You're right, you're right. You're right, but there is someplace that I want you to take me right now before I lose my courage.
Sam: Was it a mistake? Am I a product of rape? Because if I am, that certainly would explain why my mother gave me up.
Jason: You know, it's pointless to speculate. Do you want to find out for sure?
Sam: Honestly, before Stan came in, I was -- I was leaning towards no.
Sam: But now with this new information, I don't think I can turn my back on it.
Jason: Then we go to Maine, tonight.
Sam: Really? Oh, my -- thank you. Thank you so much for understanding.
Jason: Mm-hmm. I just want you to have what you need.
[Knock on door]
Jason: What are you doing here?
Max: It's about Carly.
Sam: Of course it's about Carly.
Jason: What -- what about Carly, and make it fast.
Max: She hasn't done anything yet.
Jason: So what are we expecting?
Jason: Why are you making me pull this out of you? What about Jax?
Max: She's on a date with him.
Jason: He's -- who told you this?
Max: Michael called Sonny. He knew his dad wouldn't like it; thought he needed to know. Unfortunately, Sonny's unreachable, so I brought it to you.
Jason: Well, you know what? I can't deal with Carlyís craziness right now. You're going to have to handle it.
Jason: Yeah, you. Where did Michael say they went?
Max: They were at the Metro.
Jason: Ok. Here, take this. You're going to have dinner, too.
Max: But I can't --
Jason: Just -- just make sure Carly doesn't do anything crazy, if you know what I mean.
Max: Look, at the risk of looking like a complete coward, I can't handle Carly.
Jason: You said Sonny was unreachable; Sam and I have somewhere very important to go. You're the only one left.
Max: But you know how Carly is.
Max: What if she goes off?
Jason: Well, then you contain it, ok? You're going to figure this out, Max -- that's why you make big money, ok?
Max: Jason --
Jason: You just figure -- just figure it out.
Max: No --
Jason: Let's pack
Jax: Take it easy.
Patrick: Just relax --
Robin: You know what? I am not afraid of you.
Carly: Well, you should be.
Jax: Carly, may I point out you're not behaving in a very professional manner?
Carly: I don't know. A floorshow with dinner is a time-honored tradition.
Patrick: Ok, seriously, just go somewhere else.
Robin: No, I'm not going to let this witch drive me out of this place.
Jax: Oh, hey, hey.
Robin: Contrary to what you believe, you don't own this town.
Patrick: Thanks. Enjoy.
Jax: Well, it's one disaster averted.
Carly: Yeah -- maybe.
Emily: Have you always spoken Spanish?
Sonny: My mother taught me.
Emily: Hurts to think of her?
Emily: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to bring up old pain.
Sonny: No, no. I mean, I don't want you to think that my past is off-limits. You need to know where I came from, what shaped me. You might need to understand that one day. My stepfather was named Deke. He was a bully, and like all bullies, he was paranoid. He would get angry when I talked to my mother in Spanish because he didn't know what we were talking about, because he thought we were talking about him -- whatever.
Sonny: He beat my mother. And my mother would always make excuses for him, how he treated her, just like she made excuses for every worthless man she was ever with in her life.
[Acoustic guitar plays]
Emily: What's that?
Sonny: Uh -- hmm.
Sonny: I don't know, I don't know. Let's go find out.
Emily: Oh. Sonny, is this why you called the front desk?
Sonny: Well, they're going to play for as long as you want them to play.
Sonny: You want to dance with me?
Emily: Do I want to -- yeah, absolutely.
Sonny: All right.
Emily: Oh. You know, this is sinfully romantic.
Sonny: Well, I hope so -- at least the romantic part.
Emily: I want you to say something in Spanish.
Emily: Yeah. I'm not going to understand. Come on. I just love the sound of it.
Sonny: All right -- um -- hmm --
Sonny: Me -- me agarraste mi corazon y me dejaste sin palabras. You know what that means? I'll tell you --
Emily: No, you don't have to -- you don't have to tell me. I can see it in your eyes.
Dillon: Hey, guys, good news. Evening shift just showed up, so that's good for us and the customers. Give me a minute; we'll get out of here.
Lulu: Are you afraid?
Lucas: What, because I was attacked?
Lulu: No, I'm -- I'm talking about love. About taking the chance of going there and feeling it, because I completely understand. I mean, it's not like we're surrounded by shining examples of coupledom and marriage. To be honest, the thought of a relationship makes me want to lock myself in a room and not come out till I'm 30, but --
Lucas: Yeah, I guess I'm a little afraid but, you know, not exactly of love. I think I would -- I would actually kind of enjoy that. The -- my new self -- yeah, it kind of scares me a little bit. I -- I pretended to be straight for -- for so long, I got used to hiding -- from my family, friends, from myself. I just -- I don't exactly know who the new me is, what he stands for.
Frank: You queers are all alike, aren't you?
Guy: It's not always fair or accurate to make generalizations.
Guy: Agh --
Lucas: Let's go, guys, break it up! Break it up!
Frank: Who's going to make me? You? Huh? No, I didn't think so.
Dillon: Don't think I won't use it.
Lulu: Are you -- are you ok -- aside from the blood, I mean?
Guy: See, this is what happens when people don't recycle.
Dillon: Uh -- Lucas, meet Georgieís friend Guy.
Robin: You better stay away from me or I'm going to take out a restraining order on you.
Carly: Yeah, you could do that. You could go running to Uncle Mac and say, "Big, bad Carly won't weave me awone." Or you could try getting a life of your own and stop being so jealous of mine.
Robin: Oh, jealous? You need to get over yourself.
Carly: You know what, Robin? You know it's true. You can't stand the fact that I'm confident, that I've had love, joy, children, long-lasting relationships with men -- especially Jason.
Robin: You are selfish and manipulative. Your best friend just died, and you are already hitting on the father of her child. Are you trying to steal Jaxís son, too? Well, here's an idea -- why don't you try spending some time with your own children?
Jax: Whoa! Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Carly: Let me tell you something, Robin, I am sick of you!
Jax: Listen, listen -- back off, ok? What is wrong with you? You know what? If I can't keep you away from her, I'm going to do this my way. Come with me.
Max: Yeah, I shouldn't be too long. I just have to take care of something for Jason. On second thought, I might be here a while.
Carly: You know, you better proceed with caution. You're handling dynamite.
Jax: Is it safe to let go of you now?
Carly: Why, is it getting too hot for you?
Jax: Carly, I'm immune to women like you.
Carly: You better be careful. That's the kind of statement I'm known to take as a challenge.
Waitress: Would you like a drink?
Max: Oh, I can't, I'm on duty. Scotch -- make it a double.
Robin: That woman has no shame. Look at her. She's practically groping Jax in the middle of the dance floor.
Patrick: What is this world coming to?
Robin: Oh, sorry -- I forgot who I was talking to for a second.
Patrick: Yeah, well, I'm not surprised. You've barely looked at me since Carly and Jax came in.
Jax: You're not interested in me, Carly, you're just trying to get under Robin's skin.
Carly: Hmm -- she's so easy. And I don't hear you complaining.
Jax: Well, maybe I'm just curious to see how far you'll actually go.
Carly: Really? You want to play chicken with me?
Max: I want to cut in.
[Acoustic guitar plays]
Sonny: Everything is going to be different with you.
Sonny: No. No! Hey.
Emily: Sonny, what's wrong?
Guy: I'm fine, really. I -- I don't need to be here.
Dillon: Yeah, yeah.
Guy: Really, I'm fine.
Guy: Ok, maybe "fine" is an overstatement.
Elizabeth: Are you the victim?
Lulu: Yeah, thanks for meeting us.
Elizabeth: Yeah, it looks like you need stitches. Come with me, I'll get you in to see a doctor.
Lulu: I'm going to call Lucky -- he's on duty.
Dillon: Good. It's time that that psychopath, Frank, gets what he deserves.
Lucas: Whoa, whoa, don't -- don't do that.
Lulu: Why not?
Lucas: It's not our call to make. I mean, we don't know Guy. Maybe he doesn't want the whole world to know he's gay.
Dillon: Dude, Lucas, is this about Guy or you?
Alexis: I'm surprised the key works.
Ric: I'm surprised you had it in your pocket.
Alexis: If you're looking for a rational response, I don't have one. I just always kept the key on my chain.
Ric: Did you used to come here?
Alexis: I haven't stepped foot in this place since Mikkos brought me here after the clinic. He wanted me to have a place to recover.
Ric: Alexis, if it's too painful for you to be here, maybe we should go.
Alexis: I can't do that. I need to stay and face what I've done. There are consequences to the choice that I made and I need to deal with them, and so I will. That may be the only way that I'll ever find any peace -- with my daughter's life and her death. I'm really glad that you're here with me.
Ric: You couldn't tear me away.
Alexis: I think this was the most time I've ever spent with Mikkos. It was the only time that he ever noticed me. I think he said 10 words to me the whole time he was here, five of which I remember very clearly. "You did the right thing." So you tell me how that can be true if my daughter wound up dead.
Lawrence: The receptionist said that you have questions about an adoption?
Sam: Yes, I do, actually, on a newborn. I don't -- I don't have any documentation. I just have this clinic and the date of birth.
Lawrence: I'm sorry, but it's against our policy to give out the kind of information that you're looking for.
Sam: I was afraid you were going to say that.
Jason: Please, this is important. What will it take to convince you to make an exception?
Lawrence: It's not that I'm unsympathetic. We get birth mothers in here all the time asking about the children they gave up.
Sam: Wait a minute, no. Hold on, you have totally misunderstood. I am not the mother; I'm the child.
Lawrence: Well, that's a different story. If the adoptee makes the choice, we're more than willing to help. What was the date of birth?
Sam: May 11, 1980.
Lawrence: Here you are. We have your records.
Sonny: It's just one in a long line of nightmares. It -- I couldn't sleep when I was a kid.
Emily: I -- I don't understand. We -- we had a -- we had a great flight here, we had a wonderful dinner, we walked the hillside to look at the ocean and we came back here to this beautiful room. Why would you have nightmares? What -- what brings them on?
Sonny: They usually come when -- when I'm happy.
Carly: What's going on, Max? Are you spying on me?
Max: No -- no way. Look, I -- I had some time off, I came down here to have a drink and, you know, I saw you, thought we could have a dance.
Carly: Oh! You expect me to buy that?
Jax: Well, it could happen, you know? The loyal bodyguard harbors a secret passion for the boss' wife, finally gets up enough courage to ask for a dance. I think it's cute. I think you should go for it. It'd be fun.
Carly: Ok. Let's do it.
Jax: Ok. Good luck.
Carly: So, Max, what's your favorite position?
Max: My what -- what?
Carly: Position? You know -- arm length, contact?
Max: Oh, whatever. I just dance.
Robin: I should've known. She doesn't even want Jax. It's all a ploy.
Patrick: To what end?
Robin: To make Sonny jealous. She knows that the quickest way to get his attention is to come on to somebody that he can't stand. I mean, why do you think Max is here?
Patrick: I haven't pondered Maxís presence one way or the other.
Robin: Because Sonny told him to be here, to scope out the situation and to run interference --
Patrick: Aren't you overthinking this a little?
Robin: No. I know Carly, ok? I know that I'm right. Maybe you don't want to believe that she's still in love with Sonny because you want her for yourself.
Patrick: Oh, is that so?
Robin: Oh, hello? I was there the night that you guys slept together. Don't you remember that was me standing there when you kissed her right in front of me?
Patrick: I hate to burst your bubble, especially when you're so supremely sure of yourself, but nothing happened between me and Carly -- that night, or any other.
Guy: Don't be alarmed. It only hurts when I look in the mirror.
Lulu: He's going to be all right?
Elizabeth: Good as new. You want to tell me what happened?
Lucas: Maybe Guy doesn't want to talk about it.
Guy: Why not? This guy, Frank, invites me to the campus bar to chill, you know? After he makes a point of meeting me, we get in his car, and then before I know it, he elbows me in the face, pushes me into the street, and starts waling on me, calling me a queer. And that's when we spilled out in front of Kellyís, and that's when you guys came out.
Lulu: What a disgusting creep.
Elizabeth: Sounds like a hate crime to me. This Frank guy could be arrested. Has anyone call Lucky?
Lulu: Uh -- we were going to, but we -- we didn't know what Guy would want.
Guy: What choice do I have? I just got gay-bashed. I'm going to go down to the station and file assault charges on this homophobic slob before he can do it to somebody else.
Lawrence: This is the last address we have for the birth mother. It's not far from here.
Sam: Thank you.
Lawrence: I realize how emotional this can be. I do hope everything works out the way you want it to.
Jason: Thanks again.
Sam: Thank you very much.
Jason: You don't have to go, you know? You can sit with this if you have second thoughts, or you can let me handle it, I'll do a background check, and then we'll know exactly what we're getting into.
Sam: Ok, I won't deny I'm a little, you know, on the fence here.
Jason: Ok. Just say the word. Whatever -- whatever you want.
Sam: Maybe we should just play it by ear, because I think I'm going to be really scared to even walk up to the door.
Sam: And after all, there's another person to consider, right? I mean, we've got to think about my biological mother.
Ric: Any decision to give up your daughter for adoption was made for you, Alexis. I -- I realize this is very difficult for you to understand, but at one point, you were a frightened little teenage girl with no voice.
Alexis: I had the chance to save her and I didn't take it. When my father brought me here, I was so drained. I was so tired. I carried this baby for nine months, and I held her for all of about nine seconds. She was crying when they took her away from me. And then there was nothing. She wasn't in my womb; she wasn't in my arms. She just wasnít. I went upstairs and I tried to go to sleep, but I -- I couldnít, because I could still hear her crying. So I went to the window and I saw the lights in the town, and I knew that the clinic was there. I knew that it wasn't far and that my baby was there. And then I decided that I was going to go get her and love her no matter what, and that I would do my best and trust that it would all be all right. So I got dressed and I headed out, and I got to the top of the staircase and I saw my father sitting by the fireplace. I could've gone around him, I could've slipped out the back way, but I -- I stood there and I couldn't move. And he looked up at me for the longest time and he said to me that he thought I had done the right thing. And I turned around and I walked back to my room and I cried myself to sleep. Mikkos may have arranged to have the baby adopted, but I'm the one who gave her away.
Emily: Will you be able to get back to sleep?
Sonny: Well, sometimes, you know, I just got to figure out a way to get myself so tired. On the island, I -- I swim. Most of the time, I drink.
Emily: Everything's different now, you know?
Sonny: Yeah. Yeah.
Emily: So why don't we try something new?
Sonny: Like what?
Emily: Well, all of your dreams can't be bad. Right? I can think of a happy one.
Sonny: Well, the last time I had a happy dream, it was about you.
Emily: When did you have it?
Sonny: After the first time we kissed.
Emily: Yeah. It made you feel good?
Emily: Yeah? Ok. Well, maybe we can re-create it.
[Mariachi music plays]
Carly: Wow. You're not bad.
Max: Thank you.
Carly: No, you're really good. Who knew such a big guy would be so light on his feet? You know what? I'm going to start calling you "twinkle toes."
Max: Oh, oh, no, no, no, no. Please donít.
Carly: Oh, what's wrong? Milo and the boys will give you a hard time?
Max: "Hard time"? I'll never hear the end of it. Please.
Carly: Really? Then you got five seconds to tell me what the hell you're doing here.
Patrick: Carly had her reasons for making you think that we had sex. I went along with it.
Patrick: To annoy you.
Max: So I figured I -- I better tell Jason.
Carly: Where's Sonny?
Max: He's incommunicado. And then Jason was busy. He told me to come down here and I was supposed to, you know --
Carly: What, be a pail of cold water and ruin my night with Jax? You know what, Max? I'm about to make sure you earn your money. Come on.
Max: Hey, what -- what are you going to do?
Carly: Take notes -- wouldn't want you to miss anything.
Robin: Oh, my God, she's such a slut. Where you going?
Patrick: We're leaving -- someplace else where your focus is on me. Let's go.
Elizabeth: All right, I just spoke to Lucky, he's waiting for you down at the station, and the three of you are witnesses, so you need to go as well.
Lucas: Wait, you're not afraid of what Frank might do if you come forward?
Guy: I'm more afraid of what will happen if I don't come forward. If you sweep this under the rug, then people get the impression that you're afraid of being gay and that we don't deserve the same protection as straights, and it also encourages creeps like Frank to beat up on people who are different than they are. Trust me, I wasn't his first.
Lucas: Neither was I.
Guy: I don't understand. Frank attacked you, too? What, you told the cops and they let him walk?
Lucas: I didn't press charges.
Guy: You've got to be kidding me.
Dillon: It's not easy for everyone, Guy.
Guy: You're right. Far be it for me to judge you. I'm sure you had your reasons.
Lucas: No, it would've been my word against Frankís.
Guy: You know what? Our word counts. I'm going to the station.
Lucas: Wait. I'll back you up.
Jax: I know you're doing this out of spite, but I don't appreciate being used, and for the record, I'm not over Courtney yet.
Carly: Don't flatter yourself. You said you wanted to repay me for helping with Little John? Well, now's your chance.
Jax: This is not right --
Max: I'm sorry, Mrs. C, I have to ask you where you're going.
Carly: Well, you heard the expression "get a room"? We just did.
Max: But I have my orders.
Carly: Bye, Max.
Max: I can't let you out of my sight! Great.
Robin: You know what? I can't eat. I have lost my appetite. Carly made me lose my appetite. I mean, she is such a manipulator. She will use anyone that is in her path. What? What's so funny?
Patrick: I kind of like this little attitude you got, a little fire to balance out the ice.
Robin: I'm sorry. I'm sorry I didn't pay attention to you, but whenever I'm around Carly --
Ric: You know, I'm going to keep saying this until you let yourself hear it. You were a child yourself, Alexis. You did not have the resources -- emotional or financial -- in order to go up against your family and win. And even if you had been able to -- to take your daughter away and run away that night, how were you going to take care of her? Where were you going to go?
Alexis: But if I just tried --
Ric: Alexis, "but" nothing. The choice -- sweetheart, listen to me, the choice was taken out of your hands. You had no control over it. I know this hurts you. I know this hurts you. Listen to me, I know this hurts you. And I know you want to see her. But she's gone, and you have to find a way to put this behind you. And, you know, the best way you can do that -- the best way you can do that is you can look in the eyes of those two beautiful daughters that you have right now, and you can make every day with them count.
Sam: I don't know if I can do this.
Jason: If you want to walk away, we can.
Sam: No, no, I canít. Danny's death -- that has to count for something, this must be it. I'm about to come face to face with my real mother.
Alexis: I know that everything you've said is true. I still wish that I could just look into my daughter's eyes just once.
[Knock on door]

Georgieís voice: "Remember that there's someone out here who believes in you."
Guard: It's time.
Tracy: You are going to have the time of your lives.
Sam: I'm about to come face to face with my mother.
