Diego: Hey.

Georgie: Hey.

Diego: This is turning out to be a really great day, you know that? First I got the afternoon off, then you called me, which --

Georgie: To say goodbye.

Diego: What? What goodbye?

Georgie: Diego, this -- this friendship, it can't -- it can't work. I love my husband so much and it just doesn't feel right lying to him like this and I'm really sorry. I -- I'm really sorry if I gave you the wrong impression.

Diego: Oh -- no, no, no. You've been great. I'm -- I'm the one who got it wrong, right? But -- but I understand now. I promise I will stay away from you. Look, you've helped me so much and I just want you to be happy.

[Car starts]

Georgie: I guess that's it, then.

Diego: Yeah, that's it.

Georgie: Diego, wait.

[Tires screech]

Diego: Watch out!

Georgie: Diego?

Luke: Be friends with Lulu.

Dillon: Uh -- we're already friends.

Luke: No, but I mean get really close to her. See, she's isolated and bored over at the Quartermaines', you know? She's got too much time on her hands, too much free time to meddle in my life. You could stop all that.

Dillon: Ok, all right. Um -- I've got a proposition for you. How about you spend more time with Lulu and then you don't have to pay me to?

Luke: Hey, look, man, this is -- this is a real offer here. I mean, it's got to be a lot more stimulating to you to spend time with Lulu than bussing tables at Kellyís, and I promise it'll -- it'll pay a lot more.

Dillon: Luke, man, I'm not going to stop her from worrying about you.

Luke: You'd be doing her a big favor, and me, too. Look, I can't have her meddling in my life.

Dillon: Ok, that, right there -- do you see what I'm talking about? That's why she's concerned. Not only do you voluntarily marry my mom, but you want to stay married to her? And on top of that, Skyeís having a baby with Alcazar. Come on.

Luke: Exactly -- Skyeís having a baby with Alcazar. Skye and I had something, ok, but it's over. Things -- things happen. I've moved on, but Lulu doesn't seem to be able to. And diverting her would require your specific brand of creativity, man. Come on. I know you can do this. I remember how you -- you diverted Helena at Stefanís funeral by going in drag, man. That was brilliant, and here, right on this table, you pretended to be making love to Georgie when Mac came in so that -- so that he wouldn't arrest me. You know, it's genius what you can do.

Dillon: Yeah, it's genius. It's genius, it's so genius, and exactly why I should do a 180 right now and walk out that door.

[Knock on door]

Lulu: Dillon, I need to talk --

Diegoís voice: "I don't like it, but I understand why Dillon doesn't want you to write me. If I ever had the amazing luck to have a girlfriend like you, I'd feel the same way."

Sam: Thank you.

Kristina: Hi, Sam.

Sam: Hi, Kristina.

Kristina: We're going to have a tea party, but Molly's too little. Can you play?

Sam: Well, what did you -- what did you want me to do?

Kristina: Pretend to be my sister.

Jason: You're lying. And you wouldn't be if you didn't already know where Sonny is and who he's with.

Carly: There are some questions that you just don't ask.

Jason: We're done here, Carly. I'm through playing games. This is --

[Captioned by the national captioning institute]

Carly: Think about what you stand to lose here. You're not wrong. Look, the only way to save things is for you to make a sacrifice, just like you always do. Hey. Ahem.

Sonny: What's going on?

Carly: Uh -- Michaelís school called and --

Sonny: Yeah?

Carly: He didn't have his permission slip signed, so he couldn't go on the field trip and they couldn't get in touch with either one of us.

Sonny: Oh, sorry. I was supposed to take care of that.

Carly: You know, it's ok. I shouldn't have dumped it on you. I shouldn't have. I've been spending so much time with Courtneyís baby and now I'm trying to play catch up at the hotel. It was my fault. Let's just say we got our wires crossed and forget about it.

Sonny: Yeah, ok.

Carly: Yeah. I met Bennyís brother -- you know, the new accountant. He's a great guy. I got to go. I'll see you guys later.

Sonny: Carly doesn't take blame for anything. Is she covering something?

Sam: You know what? I would love to play with you. That sounds like so much fun, but I have to go home because I got to study because I am going to be a lawyer.

Kristina: I want to be a lawyer just like my mommy, too.

Alexis: Aw. You know what? Nothing would make me more proud.

Sam: Ok. Don't eat too many cookies.

Lucky: Dad, he's reopening the Haunted Star tonight.

Nikolas: How long, though? His pattern is to lose interest after a couple of months.

Lucky: Yeah, well, it depends on how much money he can make, I guess. He's been working like a dog trying to get that place ready for opening night. I mean, I don't have any money to lose on the tables, but I figure I should be there for moral support. You want to come?

Nikolas: No, thank you. I have some business to take care of.

Lucky: You know, if you were to tell me you didn't give a damn about dad's casino, I might buy it.

Nikolas: Ok, fine. I -- I admit it. I don't feel like going out.

Lucky: Listen, I'm worried about you. Having too much time alone is not healthy.

Nikolas: I'm just not in the party mood, Lucky.

Lucky: Ok, then do it for Lulu. If dad can bring back the Haunted Star, that means he's going to stick around, and we both know Lulu needs him.

Dillon: And if this were, you know, some scam to double-cross Helena or something, I might actually be into it, except for the fact that I promised my wife I'd never get involved in another Luke Spencer caper.

Luke: The shackles of matrimony only get heavier with time, Young Scorsese.

Dillon: Yeah. Luke, listen to me. The point is the only scam you're pulling is on your daughter. I can't have any part in that.

Luke: You'd be doing Lulu a big favor.

Dillon: I doubt she'd see it that way.

Luke: Look, things between me and my daughter are kind of prickly, kind of dicey. Every time we hang out together, we end up on the same subject -- how I've disappointed her. You know, those old wounds always get reopened and she gets hurt all over again. I'm just trying to get through to her.

Dillon: Luke, tell Lulu that, not me.

Diego's voice: "Dear Georgie, I got another one of your letters today. I can't tell you how much they mean to me. When I read them, I'm not just a guy in a prison cell who's done terrible things. I'm a person with hope, with an angel looking out for him."

Georgie: Diego, are you ok?

Diego: Oh, yeah. Yeah, I'm fine. Oh! Oh, my God. That guy had to be drunk driving like that.

Georgie: You don't think that it was actually a drunk --

Diego: It was just an accident.

Georgie: You hurt your leg, Diego.

Diego: I'm ok.

Georgie: You know, if you just want to report this as a hit-and-run, I'm not going to argue, but you need to go to a hospital.

Diego: No, they're going to ask questions I don't want to answer, Georgie.

Georgie: Then let me take you back to Kellyís. I'll get you bandaged up there.

Diego: It's nothing, ok?

Georgie: It's not "nothing," Diego. You can't walk on it.

Diego: Look, you just got done telling me that we can't be friends, ok, because Dillonís going to get upset. Then I don't want to cause trouble for you. Simple.

Georgie: You just saved my life. I want to return the favor. Dillon doesn't have to know.

Luke: Well, I'm glad you came by, big man. I was going to give you a call.

Jax: Really?

Luke: We're having a big blowout here tonight. Deep pockets, black tie, big egos -- your kind of crowd. It's going to be a hell of a deal.

Jax: Well, it should be, since half the Metro Court staff will be working here.

Luke: Yeah, I needed a few extra waitresses.

Jax: You told my restaurant manager the entire dinner staff -- that's what I was told -- including the coat-check girl. She'll be working here tonight.

Luke: Well, what's yours is mine. You know, as a consultant to the hotel, I figured --

Jax: You were a consultant -- while you were blackmailing me.

Luke: Well, whatever. Carly's very, very grateful to me for putting the two of you together --

Jax: Hmm.

Luke: And she told me it'd be fine if I use the entire hotel staff.

Jax: Really? She forgot to mention that.

Luke: Must've slipped her mind. You know I'm the reason that the two of you are in business together. I came up with that venture. So why don't you just be a good guy and support my new venture? Come on in tonight. I'll throw in 50 bucks worth of chips and a complementary cocktail.

Tracy: You freeloading thief. You lowlife swindler.

Jax: Well, it seems like you have some domestic disharmony brewing. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Thanks for the 50. Tracy.

Luke: Dress like a penguin; be here at 8:00.

Jax: Got it.

Tracy: I just got $50,000 worth of bills. Apparently, you charged the renovation of this place to me.

Luke: What's mine is yours, darling.

Tracy: You owe me $50,000.

Luke: You're going to make back 10 times your investment.

Tracy: But I didn't invest. You robbed me.

Luke: I'm just trying to make the place worthy of you, spankster. I mean, you are the new face of the Haunted Star, so get ready to plaster on that big, luscious smile of yours and meet and greet.

Tracy: Why? No one's going to show up. None of my family, none of their friends, no high rollers -- nobody with an ounce of self-respect.

Luke: Every one of my RSVP's was answered.

Tracy: I'll bet -- by barflies, people you accosted in the street.

Luke: You doubt me -- it wounds me to the quick.

Tracy: Ok, sorry. Name me one guest with an actual bank account.

Luke: I'll name them all later. Right now, you need to go home and put on your most sexy dress -- or whatever passes for that --

Tracy: Donít.

[Luke laughs]

Luke: And then come on back and party, mama.

Tracy: Ok, I'll do that, but let me just warn you that if this place doesn't turn a profit immediately, I will foreclose.

Justus: Luke is reopening the Haunted Star tonight, if -- if you want to go.

Lainey: "Haunted Star"? What? Haunted Star --

Justus: Yeah, it's a casino where people gamble, have a good time. But, you know, I know you're probably not into gambling, so -- well, you know --

Lainey: Well, what makes you say that?

[Lainey laughs]

Justus: You're probably logical and adverse to taking risks.

Lainey: You're sweet -- trying to take my mind off of what happened earlier?

Justus: You ok?

Lainey: Yes. But you need to know that I am a hell of a poker player --

[Justus laughs]

Lainey: And I like to win, so you need to watch out.

Justus: Ok. All right --

[Lainey laughs]

Justus: So I'll pick you up at 8:00?

Lainey: Yes.

Justus: Ok.

Lainey: Good.

Justus: Done deal.

Alexis: So Luke is reopening the Haunted Star tonight. You want to go?

Ric: No. I say, why don't we skip it and go to that new Italian restaurant on Main?

Alexis: You don't like the Haunted Star?

Ric: It's not that. I think we're going to run into people that we don't want to see.

Alexis: Ah, that'll happen anywhere we go. Come on, it'll be fun.

Ric: You really want to go?

Alexis: You know something? I -- this is strange, but I happen to like Luke a lot and I consider him a friend, and I really want to see his venture succeed.

Ric: Ok. Haunted Star it is.

Alexis: Good.

Sam's voice: "Davidovitch"? What -- what about the name? Do you know her?

Jason: Yeah. So do you.

Sam: No, I donít. I have never heard of that name before.

Jason: Because she changed her name -- to Davis.

Sam's voice: Alexis Davis is my mother?

Carly: Oh, thank God you're alone. Sam --

Sam: Could you manage to knock at least once, please?

Carly: Listen to me, I need your help with Jason. He is about to wreck everything he loves.

Jason: Carly's been spending most of her time at the hospital with Courtneyís baby. That is her focus right now. If she's being less confrontational than usual; she's probably just trying to keep the peace.

Sonny: Maybe, but she couldn't get out of here fast enough. So you guys were just discussing Michaelís permission slip?

Jason: She just got here a couple minutes before you did, while I was talking to Bernie.

Sonny: About what?

Jason: Well, I told him to move the Cayman funds into Virgin Island accounts and to keep all March profits liquid until he's told otherwise.

Sonny: Why didn't you consult me? Those are my decisions.

Jason: You were unreachable.

Elizabeth: So Luke is reopening the Haunted Star tonight. You want to come with me and Lucky?

Emily: Uh -- thanks, but I canít.

Elizabeth: Oh, come on, his parties are never dull. Of course, he does serve cheap champagne, but we can find the good stuff in the back.

Emily: I have an anatomy test. I really need to study.

Elizabeth: Emily, you've done nothing but study since you broke things off with Sonny. You need to stop hiding, move on, have a little fun, and I think tonight is a perfect night to do it.

Diego's voice: "I think a lot about those last hours at the fishing cabin, how you made me want to turn things around."

Dillon: I'd ask why you look upset, but I already know.

Lulu: You do?

Dillon: Yeah, I -- I talked to your dad. He kind of wants me to play a little bit of a go-between, you know, tell you that he loves you and he's trying his hardest and all that -- all that jazz.

Lulu: Yeah, well, my dad can go take a flying leap.

Dillon: Ha. Yeah, well, careful what you wish for. When Luke takes a flying leap, he usually ends up on the other side of the world.

Lulu: You turned him down, right?

Dillon: Lulu, he's trying his hardest -- in his own Luke-ean way.

Lulu: "Luke-ean --"

Dillon: Shut up, I'm just -- I'm saying that he tries to, you know, say something to you, and then you take it the wrong way, and then --

Lulu: Oh --

Dillon: He said it wrong, so --

Lulu: Like it's my fault?

Dillon: No, no, no, I'm saying it's the opposite. I'm saying -- now I'm saying it wrong.

Lulu: Ok -- no, look, Dillon, you -- you're a good guy and you're an awesome stepbrother. I actually miss having you around the Quartermaine mausoleum, but I don't want to always be wondering if you are my friend or if you're working as a double agent for my dad.

Dillon: Ok, you want honesty? He offered to pay me for the job and I think I'm going to take him up on it because I need money. I'm sort of letting Georgie down lately.

Georgie: Oh, thank goodness the back stairs are poorly lit.

Diego: Ok, I'm ok, Georgie.

Georgie: Just sit down.

Diego: I don't need to --

Georgie: Sit down.

[Diego sighs]

Georgie: Can you move your ankle?

Diego: Yes.

Georgie: Does it hurt?

Diego: Just a little.

Georgie: Sorry. Can I ask you something?

Diego: Yeah, sure, anything.

Georgie: Why are you working so hard to protect the people that are trying to kill you? Diego, this is obviously because you stopped a murder in prison. You need to report this to the police.

Diego: Look, going to the cops is just going to get me killed quicker. I need to find out more before anyone knows.

Georgie: I know.

Diego: Yeah. I wish you didnít. I don't want you in the middle of this, Georgie. I don't want you to get hurt.

Georgie: You have to do something.

Diego: I'll figure it out on my own, it's fine.

Georgie: I can understand why you don't want to go to the police, but Mac and Lucky and -- and Jesse -- they would all help you.

Diego: No, they don't want to help, ok? Those guys want to see me back in prison.

Georgie: Then meet me halfway. Talk to your father.

Diego: No. No. He's the last person I want to go to.

Announcer: The part of Lorenzo Alcazar is being played by Jay Pickett.

Skye: Are you tired of the waiting area yet?

Lorenzo: Well, I'm learning to appreciate the decor, which is good, because I anticipate spending a lot of time here during the course of your pregnancy. How -- how was the checkup?

Skye: Oh, baby and I passed with flying colors. Dr. Lee said everything is proceeding normally but, of course, she wants to monitor me closely because of my history, so --

Lorenzo: Well, let's celebrate your excellent checkup -- dinner for two at the Metro Court.

Skye: How about a party for a hundred at the Haunted Star? Tonight's Lukeís reopening bash.

Lorenzo: You'd rather do that than have a romantic evening with me?

Skye: Oh. Well, we can be romantic there.

Lorenzo: So Luke can see us and be jealous?

Skye: Lorenzo, come on, we are having a child together; I'm looking forward to being a family. Luke is a friend to me and nothing more, ok? But I do care about him and, if you remember, I am a partner in the Haunted Star, and I want to see the evening go well.

Lorenzo: Then we'll go.

Carly: Jason knows that Sonny and Emily are sleeping together. I'm sure he's talked to you about it, I'm not about to ask you to betray Jasonís confidence, but you need to convince him to not confront either one of them. He's got to back off from this.

Sam: Oh, wait, you are such a hypocrite.

Carly: Sam, I am just trying to protect my best friend and the father of my children, that's all here.

Sam: No, you started this whole thing, sending up signal flares over Sonny and Emily, moaning about what a disaster it would be to anyone who would listen, and now suddenly you're trying to run interference to keep them at peace? Ok, if you don't care that Sonny's sleeping with Emily, that's got to mean you're sleeping with Jax.

Sonny: None of the orders you gave Bernie were urgent, so, you know, why didn't you come to me?

Jason: Business is slipping. You're not following up on things.

Sonny: Like what?

Jason: Like Manny. Like you told me not to deal with Manny because you thought he might have a connection with Alcazar, but so far nothing's being done to prove it one way or the other. So all I'm doing is protecting our business until we find out what's going on.

Sonny: I didn't authorize any of this. You know better than that. You come to me, we talk --

Jason: Sonny, I tried to call you; you wouldn't return my calls. If you don't start paying attention, something bad is going to happen.

Luke: Trouble?

 Carly: You know what? My personal life is none of your business. And just for the record, I'm just as worried about Sonny and Emily as I ever was.

Sam: So you're trying a new approach -- ignore it and maybe it'll disappear?

Carly: I tried to stop Sonny and Emily when there was a chance. Obviously, now it's a done deal. I'm just trying to minimize the damage, Sam.

Sam: Good. Then leave Jason out of it.

Carly: Jason has to leave himself out of it. Listen to me, if he starts throwing around ultimatums to Sonny, this thing is going to spiral out of control. This could affect everyone they care about, including my children.

Sam: I'm aware of that.

Carly: Then you've got to do something about it. Jason loves you. He will listen to you. You got to tell him to leave Sonny and Emily alone.

Luke: Am I interrupting something?

Jason: We're done.

Sonny: This -- it's a bad time right now.

Luke: Yeah, I -- I kind of got that, but I'm here to do you a favor. The hottest nightspot in town is about to reopen tonight -- the Haunted Star.

Sonny: And I get a personal invitation?

Luke: Always, my friend. Grab your lady, stick your pockets full of cash, come over and spend it.

Sonny: You just want to take my money.

Luke: Well, who says you're going to lose?

Sonny: Well, who says I want to take a chance, you know?

Luke: I never knew you to walk away from a risk.

Sonny: Well, if I just wanted to gamble, I could probably just, you know, go to one of my places.

Luke: You're not going to make this easy, are you?

Sonny: You know, Luke, I -- I wish you all the best in your business venture. It's just that right now I'm dealing with a business situation that -- it's not a good time for me to socialize.

Luke: You need to get out, old son, you need to see and be seen. That's the way you show strength in this town, pal. Did you know that Alcazar is sniffing around Skye?

Sonny: You think he's going to be there?

Luke: She'll be there, that means he'll be there.

Sonny: Alcazar and I have unfinished business. It might be a good time to, you know, to talk to him about it in a neutral setting.

Luke: Consider my casino a floating Switzerland.

Sonny: I will be there.

Luke: Good man. I'm glad. I look forward to it. Bring a lot of cash, lose most of it. Later.

Emily: You're right. I need to get out and show the world that I'm over Sonny.

Elizabeth: So you'll come to the Haunted Star with me and Lucky?

Emily: Elizabeth, you and Lucky hardly ever get a night to yourselves. Are you sure you want me tagging along?

Elizabeth: Oh, please. I asked you, didn't I?

Emily: Well, yeah, but --

Elizabeth: Come on, it'll be fun, join us. And Lucky was just saying how he hasn't seen you for a while.

Emily: All right. Thanks. It sounds like fun.

Patrick: What, you haven't seen him, either? No, I've searched every bar he's ever been to and there's nothing. All right, well, just let me know if you see him, please. Thank you.

Robin: I just put word out to the staff that we're looking for your dad.

Patrick: He'll turn up eventually. I'm done searching for him. Look, I need a change of pace. There's a party tonight. Come with me.

Robin: You want to go to a party? Your dad could be in serious trouble.

Patrick: If he wants to drink himself to death, I'm not going to stop him.

Robin: You don't mean that.

Patrick: Obviously, he doesn't want to be found, I've done my bit trying to find him, the ball's in his court. I'm done worrying about him.

Robin: Just when I thought your compassion was weighing in at almost an ounce.

Patrick: Are you going to come with me or not?

Robin: No. Of course I'm not going to come with you.

Patrick: Fine. Dr. Lee, would you like to go to a party with me tonight?

Kelly: What's the occasion?

Patrick: It's a gala for the reopening of Luke Spencerís casino, the Haunted Star.

Kelly: A casino? Count me in -- I love to gamble.

Patrick: Great. So do I. It's black tie, but I'm sure a cocktail dress will do.

Kelly: Ok.

Epiphany: Honey, don't look at me.

Manny: Hey. How'd it go?

Man: Just like you wanted.

Manny: Good. Hey, listen -- never track mud on my clean floor again.

[Music plays]

Lulu: I know that you and Georgie really love each other, but it's got to be kind of weird being married so young.

Dillon: Well, yeah, sometimes. I mean, I'm not complaining, but --

Lulu: Then why do you think that you're letting her down?

Dillon: I don't know, the obvious. I mean, we -- we live at Kellyís. She's waitressing at a diner. It's her last year at school. She should be studying and having fun.

Lulu: Well, I mean, do you think that she feels overworked or like she's missing out?

Dillon: She -- no, no, that's the thing. I mean, she's like -- she's being totally fantastic about this entire thing. She's -- she's never complaining, she says she's happy; she's totally supportive -- which makes me love her even more. I mean, the whole time I've known Georgie; she's always been, like, so honest and loyal and loving --

Lulu: Yeah. Pretty cute.

Dillon: What?

Lulu: No, you're -- you're just crazy about your wife.

Dillon: Well, yeah. Huh. I kind of am. I don't know what I'd do without her.

Singer: Hearing things that can't be

Diego: My father -- he said all the right things when he found out he had a grown son. But he's not invested in me.

Georgie: Diego, I completely disagree. He may not be the most demonstrative person that ever lived, but he does care about you.

Diego: Look, I've already let the guy down once. You think an ex-con is the kind of son a father dreams of having?

Georgie: No, but he asked you to live at home, didn't he?

Diego: Yeah, because he wants to protect me. Look, he thinks I made a mistake by getting myself out of prison before he could arrange it.

Georgie: I'm just saying give him a chance. Tell him what happened.

[Knock on door]

[Knock on door]

Georgie: Just a second! Wait, wait, wait.


Georgie: I'm coming! Lulu, I'm a little busy --

Lulu: I have something that belongs to you.

Georgie: Where did you get that?

Lulu: Yeah, that's right -- it's one of the many letters that Diego wrote to you when he was in prison. I thought you promised Dillon that you would stop writing him, but you obviously kept it going!

Georgie: I don't see how this is any of your business, and where do you get off searching mine and Dillonís room?

Lulu: Don't get all self-righteous with me, ok? Dillon totally trusts you, and you have been lying to him this whole time. So here's the deal -- I'm telling Dillon everything unless you stay away from Diego.

Carly: Jax? Jax, what's the surprise?

Jax: Hey. You like it?

Carly: What is it?

Jax: Uh -- a dress.

Carly: I can see that.

Jax: Yeah. I thought you could wear it to the reopening of the Haunted Star.

Carly: You bought me a dress?

Jax: Yeah, you know, it's a big night for your uncle, and I saw this in the hotel boutique and --

Carly: How dare you buy me a dress!

Jax: Why?

Carly: Oh, you just have the whole evening planned out, don't you? I wear the dress you bought me. I gamble with the chips you buy me. I might win because you've rigged the whole table. This is exactly something Sonny would do. This is just your chance to one-up Sonny. That's all this is.

Jax: Well, that's funny, because Sonny didn't even cross my mind.

Carly: Yeah, sure, Sonny didn't cross your mind.

Jax: Carly, you know, I think you're overreacting. Most women would appreciate the fact that I -- I took the time to pick out a dress. I thought you would look lovely in this, and I wanted to buy you something, I wanted to give you a gift. But you know what? My mistake. Let me just start again. Would you like to go to the casino opening with me, yes or no?

Carly: Yes. But I'm not going to wear the dress you bought me; I want to wear a dress of my own.

Jax: Ok. We should probably leave in about 20.

Carly: I'll be ready in 15.

[Jax sighs]

Jax: Ok. I'll pick you up in 20.

Jason: You -- you look beautiful.

Sam: Thank you.

Jason: But why are you all dressed up?

Sam: We'll talk about that in a minute. What happened with Sonny?

Jason: He lied -- again.

Sam: Carly came by.

Jason: Did you guys fight?

Sam: Well, you know, we came close, but -- you know a lot of what she says, it irritates me, but I actually agree with her on this one, Jason. She's afraid of a fallout with you and Sonny. She's worried about you, and so am I.

Jason: You agree with her?

Sam: On this one, I -- yeah, I -- I kind of do. I know you want to protect Emily and I know that you think that Sonny is wrong, but I'm asking you, please, to stay out of this one -- or at least try for now, please.

Jason: All right. I'll try -- for you -- as long as I can.

Sam: Thank you. And now I have a way to take your mind off of Sonny and Emily -- at least for one night.

Sonny: Ok.

[Door opens]

Sonny: Get the car. We're going to Lukeís casino tonight. Alcazar's going to be there. It might be a good chance for me to get a read on him.

Max: Oh. Well, that -- that's a great idea. I'll -- I'll go get --

Sonny: Ok -- before you ask, I'm not bringing a date.

Max: Hmm.

[Blues plays]

Tracy: Isn't this cozy? Just you, me, and a couple of dozen employees at the Metro Court Hotel that I am paying handsomely.

Luke: No. This is Jasper's contribution.

Tracy: Really? Well, that'll be the only freebie you get tonight. And let me reiterate -- if this place doesn't turn a profit, I will take over and I will sell it off.

Luke: Don't worry. The place is going to be packed to the rafters with Port Chuck's finest throwing their money away and loving every minute of it.

Georgie: You are blackmailing me?

Lulu: Dillon loves you, and you are trading love letters with a stalker.

Georgie: You have no idea why Diego did the things he did or what he did to pay for them, and for the record, they're not love letters!

Lulu: I don't think Dillon would agree. If he read these, it would break his heart.

Georgie: I have an idea, then. Why don't you not show them, and you can get out of my business along with his!

Lulu: Oh, you know what? Dillon thinks that you have a halo over your head, and I don't want to see him getting hurt.

Georgie: Neither do I. Diego might be my friend, but I love Dillon. Marrying him was the best thing that I've ever done, and I would do nothing to hurt him!

Dillon: Hey, hey, guys. What's the deal? I heard you arguing from down the hall.

Lulu: I'm just still upset about my dad and it's making me snap at everyone. Sorry.

Dillon: Wow.

Georgie: Yeah. Let's go see a movie.

Dillon: Hey -- no, I wanted to tell you something. Um -- no, I'll just show you.

[Dillon chuckles]

[Blues plays]

Elizabeth: Who you looking for?

Lucky: Nikolas.

Emily: He's coming?

Lucky: Well, I'm not sure. I told him about the reopening and asked him to come -- well, for Lulu's sake.

Jax: You look spectacular.

Carly: Well, that would be the idea.

Jax: You made quite an impression the last time we were in public together. Should I expect a repeat performance?

Carly: Well, the only one I want to make an impression on tonight is you.

Skye: Oh -- take care of this, will you?

Tracy: Oh!

Ric: Doesn't seem to be any hostiles in the area. We could leave now, though.

Alexis: No, all right? We're staying. It's mom's night out and I want to have a good time.

Ric: Ok.

Sam: You and I are going out.

Jason: Uh -- you know I hate going -- what?

Sam: I know, I know, just -- just listen, ok? Just listen. I just found out the last woman on earth I'd want as a distant cousin happens to be my mother. You -- you're having problems with Sonny. I thought maybe we could use a little distraction. Luke is reopening the Haunted Star.

Jason: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Sam: I'm thinking maybe a little champagne, gambling -- you like gambling, dancing?

Jason: Well, yeah, but there's going to be a whole bunch of people there that I don't want to see.

Sam: Well, you won't have to see any of them -- if you're looking at me.

Luke: I told you tonight would be a success.

Tracy: Well, let's not count our profits before the closing bell.

Luke: Oh, come on, admit it -- you're having fun.

Tracy: Well, let's see -- it's getting noisy, crowded, people are drinking too much, getting drunk, and -- it is more fun than I thought it was going to be.

Luke: That's my girl.

Elizabeth: Want to try your luck?

Lucky: No, I'm just watching.

Elizabeth: Ok.

Lucky: Yeah.

Nikolas: Ahem. Well, you look lovely.

Emily: Thank you. You look wonderful yourself. We didn't expect to see you tonight.

Nikolas: You came with Lucky?

Emily: Nikolas, he's worried about you.

Nikolas: I'm fine. You?

Emily: Yeah, I broke up with Sonny. That's why I came tonight -- to show everyone I'm past it and moving on.

Croupier: No more bets, no more bets.

Woman: Whoo-hoo!

Croupier: Double zero. Double zero. Yes, yes.

>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "General Hospital."

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Epiphany: One moment. Do you want to know what happened to Patrickís father?

Elizabeth: Just try and ignore him.

Carly: Careful.

Sonny: I don't know what you're talking about.

Carly: Oh, come on, Sonny.

Jax: I was under the impression that you came as my date.

Sam: Oh, my God --
