Nikolas: Morning, Alfred. I normally have breakfast in here after I ride, so --

Alfred: It's waiting, sir -- three egg whites, toast, golden, fruit, seasonal. The coffee should've been poured prior to your arrival. However, you're 30 seconds early. Mrs. Lansbury left most detailed instructions.

Nikolas: Very good. You wouldn't happen to have a news--

Alfred: Here you are, sir. Business section.

Lulu: Nikolas, you have to help me. You know I wouldn't ask if it wasn't important.

Nikolas: Slow down, slow down. Help you with what?

Lulu: Save my dad.

Luke: Oh! Ah!

[Luke whimpers]

Luke: Please, I'll talk, I'll talk. Oh, spanky. Whatever it is, not now.

Tracy: Yeah, now.

Luke: Oh, no.

Tracy: I want you off of my boat.

Luke: Oh -- ah --

Manny: Hey.

Epiphany: Doctors walking around in here day in and day out like they just performed some big miracle. You want to know what a real miracle would be? If any of them could master the alphabet and put D before P!

Lucky: Hey.

Elizabeth: Oh, God. Hey, you're in a good mood.

Lucky: You know, it's amazing what a difference waking up with a little money can make.

Elizabeth: Aw. Well, I hope you enjoy the feeling, because I already used your winnings from the Haunted Star last night to pay some of the bills, and it doesn't look like we'll be waking up with money again anytime soon.

Lucky: Actually, it may happen sooner than you think, and he is the key.

Ric: Hey.

Alexis: Oh. Hi!

Ric: I just got a minute.

Alexis: Hi, hi, hi. All right.

Ric: I got to meet Judge Sheppard in his chambers in about an hour. What do you want to show me?

Alexis: Our new office.

Ric: Our new what?

Alexis: Jax just had a place that opened up in the Metro Court and he's renting it out, and I think it's a perfect place for our new law firm -- "Davis and Lansing."

Carly: Not in this lifetime.

Jason: What are you hiding?

Sam: Ok, I'm being silly.

Jason: The file on Alexis.

Sam: I thought I was over it. I want to be. But there's still so much -- so much I need to know, Jason.

Jason: You want to tell Alexis that you're her daughter.

Luke: Ooh. Oh, stop that! What do you mean, your boat?

Tracy: Well, clearly, your drinking has affected your memory. Everything on this floating cesspool belongs to moi.

Luke: Well, no, that's not true. I may have celebrated a tad too theatric-- enthusiastically last night --

[Tracy laughs]

Luke: But one thing is crystal clear. Oh, yeah -- Nikolas lost 30,000 bucks at this very table, which bailed me out. You got your money; I got my boat. We're even whether you like it or not.

Lulu: Ok, you know my dad -- he's great in a crisis. When you need antibodies during an outbreak, he's your man. But when it comes to fiscal responsibility, he's not your go-to kind of guy.

Nikolas: To put it mildly.

Lulu: Well, I heard Tracy talking on the phone this morning, and dad apparently owes a lot of money in back taxes and she's planning to pay off the debt. If she does --

Tracy: I will have the title of this tub free and clear, at which point you will have to vacate immediately, as my mother used to say.

Luke: Yeah, which will send me with my tail between my legs back to your doghouse. I don't think so, my luscious, lascivious, little lollipop.

Lulu: If Tracy takes the Haunted Star, my dad will punish her by disappearing again. He will come up with some crazy scheme that'll probably take him halfway across the world. If he loses the boat, Nikolas, my dad will have no reason to come back.

Nikolas: He has you, Lulu.

Lulu: Like he's ever been willing to stay around just for me.

Tracy: You played, you lost, and you burned every bridge along the way.

Luke: Don't you count me out so quickly, spanky. I haven't yet begun to sift through these ashes.

Tracy: There is not a person in this town foolish enough to bail you out.

Lulu: Look, I know my dad treats you like complete dirt and you have absolutely no reason to want to help him, but don't do it for him, just do it for me.

Nikolas: I'm sorry, Lulu. I canít.

Elizabeth: I don't see how Manny could possibly help us get out of debt.

Lucky: Manny's a career criminal. He's got a rap sheet a mile long. If I can bust him, I'll get a promotion and better pay.

Elizabeth: Honey, he was already arrested, and both a judge and a jury were convinced that he's changed.

Lucky: Yeah.

Elizabeth: And now he's just some creepy janitor working off his community service.

Lucky: Yeah, well, maybe not. Listen, I overheard someone this morning on a stakeout. It turns out Lorenzo Alcazar bribed a cop to give him a key to Manny's ankle monitor.

Elizabeth: So he's been faking this entire time?

Lucky: Yeah. I just have to find a way to prove it. If I can connect Manny to Alcazar and bring them both down --

Elizabeth: Ok, wait -- wait a minute. You want to take on two very dangerous men just so we can pay our bills? Are you out of your mind? No, that is not worth risking your life. No amount of money is worth risking your life.

Lucky: No, no, no, it's not about the money; it's about keeping you safe. Manny works here every day. He got to you once before here, and I cannot let that happen again.

Elizabeth: Baby, I understand that you want to protect me and I love you for that, but you need to start thinking about protecting yourself. Promise me you won't do this alone.

Lucky: If it gets dangerous, I'll call for backup. But for now, I have to handle this on my own.

Skye: No, thanks. I'll show myself in.

Lorenzo: Oh. Hi, Skye. What a surprise.

Skye: Lorenzo, are you feeling ok?

Lorenzo: Yeah, fine. Why wouldn't I be?

Skye: Well, I guess I'm just not used to seeing you so -- casual.

Lorenzo: Is that a polite way of saying you prefer me in business suits and button-downs?

Skye: Oh, not at all. I'm just wondering what it could possibly be that could get you out of them.

Lorenzo: Well, why don't we discuss that over dinner? Right now, I have something else that requires my attention.

Skye: Oh. Ok, well, I won't keep you. I just wanted to come by and thank you for taking such good care of me after my fall last night.

Lorenzo: Oh, you don't need to thank me.

Skye: Oh, well, I think it's wonderful that the baby already has such a great, caring father.

Lorenzo: And an exceptional mother. I'll call you later, ok?

Skye: What? No kiss goodbye?

Lorenzo: Easy, Skye. Oh.

Skye: What is this?

Sam: I know how you feel about Alexis.

Jason: What I feel shouldn't matter. This is about you.

Sam: Look, I can't stand her, either. And if I tell Alexis that she's my mother, she will just have a cause and she will make it her mission to make me understand, and I don't want to hear a bunch of empty apologies. I just want some answers about my life.

Jason: Then you do whatever you need to do.

Sam: It would be best for everyone if Alexis never knew she was my mother but, Jason, I can't help it. I canít. I just -- a part of me actually wants to know about her life, too.

Jason: You want to know why she gave you up.

Sam: It would help. But, Jason, I don't want to find any reasons to like her.

Carly: Let me make this real clear. There's not a chance in hell that you and your lying weasel of a husband here is going to set up business in my hotel.

Alexis: It's Jaxís hotel.

Carly: I own half, and I say no.

Ric: Ok, Carly, is this really necessary? Do you have to make it personal?

Carly: I take it personally when I'm kidnapped and chained to a wall.

Ric: Right.

Carly: I also take it personally when Alexis, the queen of hypocrites here, tells me that I can't spend any time with her precious little girl. You two have done nothing but antagonize me, and I'm not going to smile and pretend like it didn't happen. I despise you both; I don't want you as tenants --

Ric: Hmm.

Carly: So get lost.

Ric: Ok --

Carly: Or I'll take great pleasure in asking the doorman to throw you out.

Ric: Enough. It's a big hotel, ok? We can all peacefully coexist here.

Carly: The question is, why would your wife want to? Aren't you afraid that my reputation's going to give your law firm a bad name?

Alexis: It's New York, Carly. We'll sacrifice a lot for a little square footage.

Ric: Nice.

Alexis: Yeah.

Carly: Well, are you really going to stand there and look down on me? Give it up, Alexis, because you have done your share of awful things, and the whole town knows about it. I'm sure you have a whole bunch of skeletons still in your closet. Wow, counselor. Did I just hit a nerve?

Luke: What do you mean, I'm a bad investment? Since when?

[Phone disconnects]

Luke: Hello? Hello? Oh, you son of a --

Nikolas: Ahem.

Luke: Oh, sorry, Cassadine. House rules -- all bets are final.

Nikolas: I'm not here to ask for my money back. Luke, in the past few months I've been -- oh, rearranging the family holdings.

Luke: How's that going for you? Family still on the verge of bankruptcy?

Nikolas: No, no. Actually, things are turning around. We sold some holdings for a profit -- a considerable, insane profit, actually. Anyway, we reinvested the money and are now starting to recoup our losses.

Luke: Congratulations.

Nikolas: Anyway, I've been searching for some interesting business opportunities, and last night got me thinking that this casino might be it.

Luke: Oh, no. If there are any two people in this town who don't have a future, it's you and me. Now, I appreciate you bailing me out last night and I'll pay you back as soon as possible, but that was a one-time deal.

Nikolas: It's an investment on my end, Luke. The day-to-day operations will be left to you.

Luke: You're not hearing me, Nik. Any partnership between you and me is a bad idea. Spencer, Cassadine. My drawbridge does not go down to allow any member of your family inside.

Nikolas: Suit yourself.

Man: What gives? I thought you had a plan.

Manny: Corinthos and Alcazar are not stupid. The only way to get what I want is to set them up carefully.

Man: How's it going down?

Manny: Corinthos finds out that Alcazar has been helping me. And then we hit Alcazar where he's sure to feel it.

Lorenzo: It's -- it's not finished.

Skye: So I see.

Lorenzo: I am more than capable of assembling a crib.

Skye: Oh, Lorenzo, I think it's really sweet that you'd even make the attempt, although, maybe I think it's a little early.

Lorenzo: Look, I will prove to you that I can do this, Skye.

Skye: You don't have to prove anything to me.

Lorenzo: I disagree. You only know me for the man I am now. There was a time when I led another life, before I went to work with my brother, when I had different dreams and different talents. However, carpentry clearly wasn't one of them. But I can read directions and I am determined to do this. All right, you're welcome to sit and watch. Scalpel. All right. Let's see.

Mike: Hey, Diego. Any luck?

Diego: Yeah. Furnace is good as new, Mike.

Mike: Oh, terrific. So maybe you can add handyman to your resume. Oh --

Georgie: Hey, I didn't know you were here today.

Mike: Sweetheart, would you -- would you watch the counter for me for a few minutes, ok?

Georgie: Sure.

Mike: I'll be right back.

Georgie: Yeah.

Diego: Mike's giving me a break on the rent if I do some repairs upstairs, so --

Georgie: Yeah. I'm really sorry. I know that that doesn't even begin to cover what happened the other day.

Diego: No, no, no, no, no. You don't -- you don't have to be sorry.

Georgie: You had to hide in the closet while Lulu trashed you and then Dillon poured his heart out to me.

Diego: It was my idea to hide in your closet.

Georgie: For a few minutes, not a few hours. I did everything I could to get Dillon out of the room, but he just wanted to talk.

Diego: Dillon had a lot of important things to say. Dillon loves you, Georgie. I'm sorry if I messed that up.

Georgie: You haven't, and you wonít.

Elizabeth: Hi.

Sam: You here for him?

Elizabeth: Yeah.

Sam: Ok. Come in.

Elizabeth: Ok, thanks.

Jason: Hey.

Elizabeth: Hi. Do you have a minute?

Jason: Uh -- sure, yeah. What's -- what's going on?

Elizabeth: Well, Lucky overheard something this morning about Manny Ruiz. Apparently, Lorenzo Alcazar bribed a cop into giving him a key to Mannyís ankle monitor. Why don't you seem surprised?

Jason: No, because I knew that Manny was slipping out of his monitor, I just couldn't prove how. Why -- why are you coming to me with this?

Elizabeth: Uh -- because I just -- I just thought you should know Manny and Alcazar are working together.

Jason: What do you want me to do, Elizabeth?

Kristina: Grandpa Mike!

Mike: Hi, kiddo!

Sam: Hey, Kristina. How was your tea party?

Kristina: Molly's no fun. It would be better if you were my sister.

Sam: Where's your mom at?

Viola: Alexis has a business meeting with Ric at the Metro Court. They'll be by later to pick up the girls.

Mike: Hey, sweetheart, what would you like? Peanut butter cookies or double-chocolate brownies?

Kristina: Both!

Mike: Both? All right, come on. Let's get some.

Diego: I won't say anything to Dillon, I promise. Look, I -- I want you to be happy, Georgie. That's it. And I don't want to be the guy that complicates your life.

Georgie: Thank you, Diego. That really means a lot.

Diego: Well, also, so did -- so did your letters. Yeah, I mean, reading them was the only thing that kept me going in prison. I guess, in a way, you were my lifeline. I'm still holding on.

Georgie: You're home now, and I think it's time to let go. Diego, we can't be friends. Dillon just wouldn't understand.

Diego: Yeah, it's for the best -- at least for you.

Maxie: Of course. Every time Dillonís gone, you just go running off to Diego.

Georgie: We work and live in the same place, Maxie. We're bound to run into each other.

Maxie: No, you live here because Dillonís witch of a mother cut him off. You don't have a choice, Diego does. Why don't you just go live in your daddy's mansion? I mean, you could work for him, too. The fact that you're a convicted felon, it might come in handy.

Georgie: Maxie.

Lucky: Well, well, well. Just the person we wanted to see.

Diego: Look, I was done talking to you two, ok?

Lucky: No, no, no, no, no.

Jesse: No. You're just getting started. You're going to jail, Diego.

Skye: Wow. Lorenzo, I have to admit -- you're even worse at this than I would be.

Lorenzo: Doesn't look that bad.

Skye: Oh. From which angle?

Lorenzo: It's standing, is it not?

Skye: For now.

Lorenzo: All right, you're welcome to try.

Skye: Oh. Oh, really? Well, you know what I think? I think we're lucky that this kid isn't coming for a while because, maybe with the both of us working on it, the kid might actually be able to use it one day.

Lorenzo: Hmm. I have no doubt. I think we certainly worked well together creating this child.

Skye: I'd say so.

Lorenzo: Mm-hmm.

Manny: Ahem.

Elizabeth: I know you have no use for the police, but you did save Lucky from those Crylium people.

Jason: I -- I have no problem with Lucky, but he might have a problem with me and obviously what I --

Elizabeth: I -- I know, I know. Believe me, I -- I know. That's why it's not really fair for me to be here, but I'm asking you for Lucky. Jason, he's a good, honest man, and he just wants to keep his family safe and protect us and --

Jason: Ok, what does it have to do with me?

Elizabeth: You know Manny works at the hospital. Lucky doesn't want him anywhere near me. He thinks if he can prove that Manny and Alcazar are connected somehow, then he can arrest them both and keep me safe. But the problem is, is somewhere in the middle, I know Lucky's going to end up getting hurt. And not only is Manny this -- this professional killer, he's -- he's a total sociopath.

Jason: I still don't know what you're -- you're asking me to do.

Elizabeth: I am asking you to do whatever you have to to keep Lucky safe.

Jax: Hey.

Alexis: Hi.

Jax: Got your message. I understand that you want to rent space from me.

Alexis: We do. Ric and I want to start a law firm. Davis, Lansing -- Lansing, Davis -- however it works out, but we need a suite.

Jax: Well, I'm never one to turn down money. I could use a tenant; I don't foresee a problem.

Alexis: There is one.

Jax: Oh?

Carly: I should've known that you would drag Jax into this.

Alexis: For some reason beyond my comprehension, you have chosen to befriend Carly. I don't like her, but I really like you and I really want this suite, and she said that I can't have it, so you have to pick.

Jax: Pick what?

Alexis: We seem to be at an impasse. You decide -- her or me?

Carly: Ok. Choose.

Georgie: Ok, Maxie, I get it. You hate that I'm friends with Diego, point taken. But did you really have to get your cop boyfriend to arrest him? What's the charges, detective? Jaywalking? Littering? Puddle jumping?

Jesse: He's not being charged with anything. We're putting him in protective custody.

Diego: Look, I don't need protection.

Lucky: Hey, listen to this for a second.

Diego: Oh, excuse me. Don't touch --

Lucky: We have a witness who saw two people matching your descriptions almost get run over by a car.

Maxie: Georgie.

Lucky: Were either one of you involved in a hit-and-run?

Jesse: Whoever did this is going to try it again. So unless you tell us what really happened, you're going to jail.

Diego: What are you -- no, this is ridiculous, ok? I've got work to do.

Georgie: Wait. It wasn't an accident.

Manny: Oh, I didn't mean to interrupt your family time. It's nice to see you again.

Skye: I really should be going.

Lorenzo: Skye -- Skye -- I'm sorry about the intrusion.

Skye: What is he even doing here, Lorenzo?

Lorenzo: You know, I'm wondering that myself.

Skye: I know he's trying to pass himself off as a model citizen, but that guy still makes my skin crawl. Don't you find it a little odd that he's able to get by all your guards without anybody stopping him?

Lorenzo: You know what? It won't happen again. I'm sorry if he scared you.

Skye: No, what truly scares me is all of the possible reasons why you could still be associating with him.

Lorenzo: You know, please don't worry, Skye. It's not good for the baby. Get some rest. I'll call you later.

Skye: Ok.

Lorenzo: Ok.

Manny: It's like a puzzle, Lorenzo. See? Every piece has its place.

Lorenzo: What the hell are you doing? You stay away from anything that involves my child -- especially Skye.

Manny: Hey, man, you need to relax. I'm only here to help.

Lorenzo: You shouldn't be here at all, Manny.

Manny: Well, you know, I thought you'd appreciate a warning. You know the cop that you bribed to get the key to my ankle monitor? He's been running his mouth. I don't think Sonny and Jason are going to be happy when they find out that you helped me. Hey -- you should make a move now before they come after you.

Lorenzo: You know what? I will let you know when I decide.

Manny: Oh, yeah? Well, don't forget we're partners so, I go down, I'm taking you with me.

Carly: The day's come. You have to choose between your friend and former wife whom you never consummated the marriage -- but there's no surprise there -- and me, the woman you've been endlessly warned about. Seems like a really simple decision. You and Alexis go way back, you guys are all warm and fuzzy, and -- well, you and I share this uncomplicated attachment confined to various rooms and surfaces of this hotel.

Alexis: Ew, ew, ew! For the love of God, tell me that what Nikolas saw was a hallucination. Please? Tell me that you don't have an ongoing affair with this woman.

Lulu: Well, you're definitely doing better than I thought you'd be doing.

Luke: You worry too much, daughter.

Lulu: Well, last night -- it was big for you. I thought you'd still be celebrating.

Luke: If you're looking for Nikolas, he's long gone.

Lulu: Why would I be looking for Nikolas here?

Luke: That poker face needs some work, baby. I told the dark prince he cannot buy into the Star.

Lulu: What -- why would you do that?

Luke: Because I don't want him here. He's not family.

Lulu: He is my family. Nikolas is my brother. He saved me when I was a little girl, and he was --

Luke: Yeah, well, this time my pride is on the sickbed, and I'll be damned if I'm going to be saved by some Cassadine.

Lulu: Where was your stupid pride when you married Tracy? You didn't mind letting the evil witch solve your money problems.

Luke: Will you get out of my face? My head hurts too much for this.

Lulu: You are about to lose everything, so, yeah, I asked Nikolas to pay your taxes, but he said no because it would be a quick fix and you'd be back to where you started in a few months. So he decided to invest and let you keep the stupid boat so that I have a prayer of keeping you around. What are you doing?

Tracy: I'm taking inventory -- these, that. I'm selling every piece of crap on this boat, starting with that.

Lulu: Ha. I don't think so.

Tracy: You don't think so?

Lulu: Oh, no, I donít.

Tracy: Who asked you your opinion?

Lulu: You think that you just walk in here --

Tracy: I am so sick of your mouth.

Lulu: And decide what happens?

Tracy: Yes, I do.

Lulu: Oh, and so -- oh, it's just all about you?

Tracy: That's exactly what -- I still love looking at her,

Diego: The driver didn't see us.

Georgie: No, he was deliberately trying to hit us, Diego. We were perfectly fine where we were standing, but he swerved at the last second and clipped you. If Diego hadn't pushed me out of the way, then --

Maxie: God, Georgie, you could be dead right now. What is it going to take to keep you away from Diego?

Georgie: Maxie, Diego didn't pull me into this.

Maxie: Well, he's not trying to keep you out of it, either.

Diego: All right, all right, ok. Look, look, Georgieís right, ok? Somebody's after me because I stopped a murder in prison. I think the driver must've been one of the guys that beat me up on the docks.

Jesse: Do you have any idea who ordered the payback?

Diego: No. No, no, I swear.

Jesse: Guys like this don't stop till the job's finished.

Diego: Well, what do you think? That nobody's going to get to me in a jail cell?

Lucky: Listen, we're not going to lock you up, but we do need you to come down to the station and file a report. If there's anything else that happens, just tell us and we'll follow up on it.

Diego: Fine. Ok, but on one condition -- Georgie stays out of it.

Maxie: Well, it's a little too late for that, now, isn't it?

Ric: Yeah, I filed for a contingency -- oh -- sorry.

Alexis: Adjusting to fatherhood in the best of circumstances is difficult, and to have to do it while you're mourning for the woman you love is -- is incomprehensible to me. Your life has been turned upside down and I understand how you would want to reach out for comfort. It's unfortunate that the nearest warm body was that of a vulture we both know that she's a bone-picking opportunist --

Jax: Alexis, Alexis --

Alexis: Huh?

Jax: I appreciate your concern, I do.

Alexis: Thank you.

Jax: But I don't think you renting an office is a good idea at this time.

Lorenzo: It's been done.

Diego: Hey, listen, I wanted to let you know I'm going down to the cop shop to file a report on the attempted hit-and-run.

Lorenzo: Someone tried to kill you?

Diego: No. Yeah, but look, I -- I wasn't hurt. The -- the point is I was going to let this go, ok, but a witness filed a report, and then those two idiot detectives brought Georgie in. I didn't want her to --

Lorenzo: So Georgie was involved in this?

Diego: Well, yeah, she was standing right next to me.

Lorenzo: Why didn't you call me when this happened?

Diego: Dad, I'm here now, ok? It's fine. I wanted to let you know I'm going down to the cops, in case there's something I shouldn't be saying. Ok? I don't know -- someone that I shouldn't identify?

Lorenzo: You think you're a target because of me?

Diego: Look, I thought this whole thing was about the murder I stopped in prison, but I'm not sure now. Pop, listen, if you're involved in some kind of war that I don't know about, you got to --

Lorenzo: Diego, I am in the process of tying off some outstanding business.

Diego: Could you be a little more specific, pop?

Lorenzo: Let's go down to the police station; take a look at the mug shots. If you recognize anyone, will you tell me?

Diego: Oh, yeah. Well, what are you going to do?

Lorenzo: I'm already doing it. I am creating a safe life for you and Skye and the baby. And that -- that means ending some prior associations as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

Luke: The joint is still mine! Keep your greedy hands of my stuff! Take your pocket-protector pirates and beat it! Otherwise, I'll add lead to your inventory. Go on, get out of here! Here. You're security.

Lulu: What -- what do you expect me to do with this?

Luke: Nobody comes on the boat, nobody touches my stuff. You got it?

Lulu: I guess.

Luke: All right.

Lulu: Oh --

Luke: Give me that. Jeez. All right, never mind. Just hang out here. I'll be back soon.

Ric: Here, let me --

Sam: No, thank you.

Ric: Ok.

Alexis: I can't believe you'd choose sex over friendship. I knew I should've slept with you.

Jax: I'm just doing what's best for everyone involved, ok? I can't spend my days refereeing you and Carly every time you run into each other in the lobby. It's bad for business -- for you and me, ok? That's why I'm suggesting that you find another place to open your firm.

Ric: Well. I see everything changed a lot while I was gone.

Alexis: I'm going home to the girls. I want to be around people who like me.

Ric: Hey -- I like you.

Alexis: Thanks.

Carly: You're mad.

Jax: Pretty much. You know why?

Carly: Yeah.

Jax: I don't appreciate being put in that position. I don't like being backed into a corner by anyone. I mean, it would be better for you to just ask instead of forcing me to choose.

Carly: I'm sorry.

Jax: Ok.

Carly: I've never had a problem asking, you know. Like, I'd like to ask you to dinner.

Jax: Well, I'd very much like to go to dinner.

Carly: Good. I'll pick you up later. There's something I have to do first.

Jax: Ok.

Jason: I need to see Sonny.

Max: Well, he's not here.

Jason: Ok, I need to see him right now. I don't care -- I don't care what he's doing.

Max: Jason, he's been gone a while.

Jason: Where is he?

Max: I don't know. I swear, Jason, all right? He -- he left on his own, he hasn't been answering his cell phone. I don't know where he is.

Jason: Ok, if you're lying to me --

Lorenzo: I need to speak with Sonny.

Jason: He's out.

Lorenzo: Fine. Probably be best to discuss this with you first, anyway.

Sam: Ok.

[Phone rings]

Sam: Hello?

Mike: Hey, Sam, it's Mike. Listen, you left one of your books on the counter in here earlier.

Sam: Oh -- oh, gosh. Thank you. I'm going to come right over and get it. Thanks, Mike.

Alfred: Good afternoon, sir. How may I be of service?

Luke: Who are you?

Alfred: I'm the new butler. Mrs. Lansbury took an extended leave of absence. I'm Alfred.

Luke: Well, hello, Alfred. You seem the perfect man to guard the bat cave behind these walls.

Alfred: Forgive me, sir, but is Mr. Cassadine family?

Nikolas: Well, none that he would admit to. Give us just a minute, will you, Alfred?

Alfred: Certainly, sir.

Nikolas: Thank you. Well, I'm certainly surprised to see you.

Luke: Not as surprised as I am to be here. Well, I'll make my pitch. I don't like you much.

Nikolas: Hmm.

Luke: I gather you feel the same about me, and that's ok. But, unfortunately, my daughter is something that we have in common and, right now, she takes priority. So, if your offer to subsidize the Haunted Star still stands, I'd like to take you up on it. As soon as I pay you back the 30 grand I owe you for last night's bailout, we can split the profits 70/30.

Nikolas: Wow. 70/30? 70%? That's -- that's a great offer. Thank you.

Luke: Yes, well, the 70% is mine. You get 30%. 60/40.

Nikolas: 50/50. My half goes into a trust for Lulu.

Luke: That's fair. I agree. However, we share the profits, but I maintain exclusive ownership and management of the club.

Lorenzo: I gave Manny Ruiz a key to his ankle monitor. He's been free to move about the city for weeks.

Jason: Why are you telling me this now?

Lorenzo: Because I'm about to become a father.

Jason: You already are.

Lorenzo: Diego's a man, he takes care of himself. I'm expecting a child with Skye. It's a fragile situation, one that requires the best of me, not the worst.

Jason: So why are you here?

Lorenzo: I don't want Skye or my child to become potential targets. We need to make peace. I swear to you on my child's life that I won't make a move on you or on Sonny.

Jason: Is that it?

Lorenzo: You're the logical one, Jason, the one who listens and understands what works to everyone's advantage. I have a family to protect; so does Sonny. Make him see why this truce needs to happen.

Jason: Sonny does what he wants, Alcazar. He's the one who gives the orders.

Man: You wanted to see me?

Manny: Grab a brush.

Man: You don't pay me to scrub floors.

Manny: I pay you to do what I say. Grab a brush.  You're going to need that. It all goes down tomorrow night.

Jesse: So, there's a carnival in the park tomorrow night. A few rides and games, funnel cake -- all that good stuff. If I can get someone to cover my shift; we should go. It'll be nice to spend some time together. Might even take your mind off Georgie.

Maxie: Jesse, Diego has gone from wrecking Georgieís marriage to now risking her life. You've got to do something to try and fix this mess before my sister really gets hurt.

Sam: Hey.

Mike: Hey, Sam. You looking for this?

Sam: Thank you so much, Mike.

Mike: Yeah, "Fundamentals of Science." I can't say that that's on top of my must-read list.

Sam: You know what? It's not really on the top of mine, either, but I'm getting my G.E.D. Emily was supposed to meet me here so I could study for the science portion.

Mike: Hey, that's great, Sam. Look, I'm sure you'll do fine on that test.

Sam: Well, I -- I hope so, because I'm not going to get into law school if I donít.

Alexis: There are the girls. Hi, munchkin.

Mike: So, what -- what inspired you to make this sudden career change?

Sam: I have something to prove.

[Knock on door]

Carly: Jason? Hello? Can't get mad at me this time -- the door was open. Sam? Ok, that's weird. I'll leave them a note. Wherever that was. What -- what in the world -- oh, my God.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Lorenzo: I'm here to make peace.

Sonny: It's a little too late for that.

Elizabeth: Carnival's in town. Come on, it'll be fun.

Manny: Take out the target tonight in the park.

Carly: Sam's suddenly deciding to become a lawyer? Almost like it's in her blood.

Kristina: Look here, Mommy.

Ric: Enjoying the view?
