Lorenzo: I assume you came here for a reason. Why don't you stay and tell me what it is, unless you'd like me to hazard an educated guess.
Skye: I didn't know Luke was coming here, if that's what you're implying, or that he wanted to kill you.
Lorenzo: You didn't tell Luke that I switched your chart with Lulu's?
Skye: Why would I do that?
Lorenzo: Well, you were pretty angry with me.
Skye: I still am, but I didn't tell Luke. I have no idea how he found out.
Lorenzo: Well, if not from you, then who? Somebody set Luke up to kill me.
Luke: Does your old man know you're out this late?
Lulu: Bad day at the office?
Luke: Same old, same old. I almost killed a man tonight.
Lulu: May I ask why?
Luke: Because he almost killed you.
Alexis: Oh -- hi. What are you doing here?
Sam: No, no, no, no, the door! Don't let it -- close. Perfect.
Alexis: It appears that we're locked in here -- together.
Jason: I told you to go home.
Emily: I heard you loud and clear, but I don't take orders from you. And I'm not going anywhere until you hear me out.
Luke: I let em drain my blood to make a serum to help you. Nobody else -- you!
Lulu: Yeah, well, I mean, at least it went to Skye, the woman that you love.
Luke: Doesn't matter. Alcazar had no right to play fast and loose with your life.
Lulu: You said that you almost killed him. What stopped you?
Luke: Man, sometimes I really wish I could offer you a drink.
Lulu: Well, I won't tell if you don’t.
Luke: I'm tempted. But, no, wait till you're 18 or 21 or whenever the hell it is, and then you're on.
Lulu: Ok, well, I'll hold you to that.
Luke: The problem was Skye was there. She gave me that whole song and dance about "Please don't kill the father of my child," blah, blah, blah. Usually, that wouldn't matter -- I'd go ahead and shoot anybody who deserved it -- but I'm a sucker for her eyes.
Lulu: Yeah, tell me something I don't know.
Luke: Doesn't mean Alcazar gets a pass, though. I can still find him when Skye’s not around.
Lulu: Well, will you do me a favor before you shoot Alcazar?
Lulu: Tell him I said thanks.
Skye: It's not like it's common knowledge about you switching those charts. Who else knows about it besides us?
Lorenzo: Elizabeth Spencer. She noticed shortly after you recovered.
Skye: Oh, come on. You're not suggesting that Elizabeth is guilty of setting Luke up?
Lorenzo: Well, she confronted me. Unfortunately, Manny was nearby and he heard the whole thing.
Skye: Wait. Now you're making sense.
Lorenzo: Manny was not happy that I came clean with you. It cost him his hold over me, so he went to Luke, knowing that he would react like any outraged father with no compunction about using the business end of a gun. Luke was supposed to take me out for Manny. But what Manny didn't count on was you. So let's take inventory. Manny's running around unchecked, doing whatever he wants. Sonny thinks I ordered a hit on him and Emily. And Luke probably wants to finish what you interrupted, which leaves you, what, angry? Repulsed?
Skye: Don't you put words in my mouth.
Lorenzo: I'm just trying to figure out where I stand.
Skye: Well, you get points for being honest, I'll give you that much. It couldn't have been easy admitting to me that you switched those charts. But thankfully Lulu didn't have to pay for your mistakes with her life. Well, I've certainly done a lot of things in my life I'm not proud of, so I'm really not in any position to sit back and make judgments. And I do believe that you wanted to end your -- association with Manny once I got pregnant.
Lorenzo: And now I guess this leaves us with the chaos I laughingly refer to as my life. Not exactly the best environment for raising a child.
Skye: I knew what I was getting into when I got involved with you, how dangerous your life can be. Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm not minimizing the threat. I know what a psychopath Manny can be, what a menace he can be to you and anyone you care about. He was behind that shooting in the park, wasn't he?
Lorenzo: I have no doubt. Because Manny knew if my son came under attack, the first person I would suspect would be Sonny. And in Manny's world, I'm supposed to retaliate without thinking. That didn't work, so he threw Luke into the mix, and I think that brings us back to why you are here. You want me to agree to stay away from this child, don't you?
Alexis: Anybody out there? It's late. I doubt that anybody's here.
Sam: Cell phone? Gee, why didn't I think of that? Yeah, the reception in here is shot.
Alexis: Oh, well. Somebody will be around eventually and they'll see the light under the door, and we won't have to endure each other's company very long at all.
Sam: I wasn't stalking you, if that's what you're --
Alexis: I didn't say anything.
Sam: You don't have to; I can read it on your face. I just -- I mean, I wanted you to know. I was looking for Justus, so I came in here, and then, of course, the door locked.
Sam: Is this yours?
Alexis: Yes, that is. Thank you. I left it here when I met with a client. Thanks.
Sam: I thought it looked familiar.
Alexis: Yeah, Ric’s always chasing me around, looking for everything that I leave behind -- my cell phone, my glasses, my head. I thought you might be able to use these.
Emily: This has been, by far, the most humiliating night of my entire life. Some guy bursts into our hotel room, gun blazing. I'm standing there in my underwear. And suddenly the shooter is dead at my feet and my brother has magically appeared with his own smoking gun, and tells me not to get dressed until the police come. Thought it couldn't get any worse. And then you dismissed me like I was a stranger -- I've seen you shut down from other people before, Jason, but never from me. What am I supposed to take away from all of this? All of this drama about you wanting to protect me from Sonny, all of this talk about how he's going to hurt me. Well, it turns out that you're the one who hurt me like I never thought you could. Ok. So that's it? You're cutting me out of your life. You don't love me anymore because I love Sonny.
Jason: It's because I do love you that I can't watch what is going to happen, and I won’t.
Luke: Why the hell would I thank Alcazar?
Lulu: He's the reason that I got so sick, and if I hadn't, you wouldn't have come to my room and said all those wonderful things.
Luke: Do you think that I didn't mean what I said?
Lulu: No, no, I -- I do. It's just that sometimes you -- you wait too long to say them. I mean, Skye, for example. Can I ask you something?
Luke: If you must.
Lulu: If it took me almost dying to get your attention, what can I do for an encore?
Skye: I wish I'd known you when you were just a grad school history major with modest ambition, before you got involved in this family business. Before I became a raging alcoholic carrying around fallout from a string of romantic disasters, before -- before all this baggage, when things could've been different. But all we've got is our reality. Not in love, barely a couple, expecting this child together. My priority right now is to make the right decisions for this child and I don't even have a clue as to where to start or what "right" even means.
Lorenzo: You know, that's a long away around to the same page, Skye. My only priority is to make sure that you and this child are safe.
Skye: How do you plan on keeping us safe in a town where the cops are being shot right along with the bad guys?
Lucky: What's this?
Elizabeth: A to-do list. Now that you've turned in your badge, you'll have time to catch up on a few things around here. And in the meantime, we will update your résumé. And we will take the winnings from the Haunted Star and we'll buy you a new suit for interviews -- I'm thinking something a little more white collar -- you know, better hours, better pay --
Lucky: You're kidding me, right? Who's going to hire me for a desk job? I mean, my higher education solely consists of running scams with my father -- which, amazingly, helped qualify me for the one thing I was good at, and that was being a cop.
Elizabeth: I know you loved being on the force but, honey, you quit. You weren't fired.
Lucky: And I don't appreciate this reverse psychology.
Elizabeth: I beg your pardon?
Lucky: I'm not a 5-year-old, Elizabeth. I'm not going to let you trick me into picking up my badge again.
Elizabeth: It just so happens I am being honest with you. I am happy you left the department, ok? I'm going to throw a party for you just for the simple fact that you're not in danger every time you walk out that front door!
Lucky: What do you have to complain about? I am alive, I'm not dead -- I get other people killed. If you doubt that, there's a marker at the cemetery with my partner's name on it.
Jason: I want you to do something for me. I want you to do something for me. Hold on to this night, remember all the details. How you felt when a man -- a strange man with a gun kicked open your door and opened fire. How shocked you were when you found yourself on the floor, in your underwear, wondering what the hell just happened, knowing that you could die any second -- remember this. Remember being questioned, having to tell everything that happened, including the intimate moments with Sonny to a bastard like Durant! Remember all of it! But if you don't, if you're so deep in denial that you're able to erase this from your mind and go on like nothing happened, enjoy it while you can. Because it will happen again.
Sam: I don't need your tissues.
Alexis: Ok. They'll be right there in case you change your mind. Bad night?
Sam: Don't pretend like you don't know, please?
Alexis: Ok, I won’t. I know that there was another attempt on Sonny's life and I know that it was Emily’s turn to be the innocent victim getting caught in the middle of crossfire, and I know that Jason was arrested for killing the shooter. He got angry and took it out on you.
Sam: Then you certainly know why I might be just a little upset.
Alexis: No, I'm -- I'm sorry, I -- I don’t.
Sam: Please do not start with me right now.
Alexis: I'm just saying that I don't understand why you're so upset. This isn't new. It's not like it never happened before -- in fact, it happens all the time. You should be used to it by now.
Sam: What's your point, Alexis?
Alexis: You're an adult. Act like one. Make another choice, Sam, so you don't have to be so upset all the time. There are a lot of nice guys out there that aren't in the mob, choose one of them. God, I wish Kristina had that same option.
Alexis: She's stuck in the middle of this, and -- and she doesn't get a vote because she's too little. Nobody will listen to Kristina, but they'll listen to you. You can get out; Kristina can't!
Sam: Why is it always about Kristina with you? Do you ever once give a thought to your other daughter?
Lorenzo: In case you haven't noticed, I am extremely focused, and when I set a goal, I achieve it one way or another. And right now, nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of you and our child.
Skye: I realize that was meant to be reassuring, but telling a pregnant woman who's turned down your marriage proposals how single-mindedly obsessive you are could make her nervous.
Lorenzo: There's no need to be, Skye. I know you have doubts. I know you think we're putting the cart before the horse, so to speak, by having a baby without being a "real" couple, but that's what happened, and I'm willing to accept the parameters. I'm not trying to make you fall in love with me. But I can make my life a safe and secure place for you and our baby.
Skye: What about Manny? Ok, if you won't say it, then I will. There is one more dangerous thing you have to do to make us safe.
Luke: You've got to stop hoping that I'm going to turn into some kind of typical dad, because it'll never happen. Hell, I don't even know what a typical dad is. You’re in for more disappointment, little girl.
Lulu: No, not always. You come through in a very big way every now and then.
Luke: Look, I meant everything that I said in the hospital. Everything, every word. I love you. I'm so proud of you. And you don't need -- you don't need my attention. That's yours to keep for the rest of your life no matter what happens. That's not going to change. I'm always going to love you. And you don't need my approval, either. Hell, you don't need anybody's approval. You're Lesley Lu Spencer. You live in your own skin; you cultivate your own interests. And -- and looking to me -- or anybody else -- to make everything better is just a big mistake. It's -- and it's not going to happen. You know, I'm -- I'm always going to disappoint you. That is one of the consistencies of life.
Lu: Is this your idea of a pep talk?
Luke: I'm trying to tell you the truth, ok?
Lu: I know, I know, and it's -- it's good enough, really.
Lulu: I love you, limitations and all.
Luke: I appreciate that.
Lulu: You're supposed to say "I love you, too."
Luke: There you go again. I'm never going to do what I'm supposed to do. Don't you get it? It doesn't mean I don't love you, it just means that's who I am. I mean -- look, it seems to me that it's time I taught you the facts of life, starting right now.
Jason: Do you remember the night I found you outside Kelly’s? You were upset. Alan and Monica were fighting. You were afraid.
Emily: About Monica’s cancer coming back. I had already lost my birth mother, and -- and I thought I'd die myself I-- if I lost Monica, too. And you were patient and kind. You let me ramble on and on. And I remember thinking how lucky I was to have a brother like you. And I still feel that way, Jason, but now I'm afraid that you're the one I'm going to lose.
Jason: You're going to lose yourself, piece by piece, or all of it. Either way, you're going to wake up one morning and look in the mirror --
Jason: And not recognize who you see, and that's if you live long enough. That night outside Kelly’s, you said you wished you were like me, that if you couldn't feel, you couldn't hurt. But that's not you. Actually, you care too much, you feel too much. And that is why you cannot stay with Sonny. The way you love is going to be the way he'll destroy you.
Sam: News flash, Alexis -- you have another daughter, but no one would ever know because it's always Kristina this or Kristina that. What about the other child you carried for nine months? Did you even care when she was born? Were you excited to meet her? Were you anxious to see her face? The first time you held her; did you feel anything at all, because it's always about Kristina for you, right? Did you ever stop to consider how doting on one child can make the other feel unwanted, useless, wishing maybe that she had never been born?
Alexis: Listen, you. I have had it up to here with your interminable, baseless accusations about my character. You don't know the first thing about me. Here's a tip -- whatever horrible things you've gone through in your life, I have gone through just as many, probably more because I've lived longer than you. Come to think of it, I'm old enough to be your mother, so show me some damn respect! As for Kristina, I worry about her more because her father is a career criminal. Molly's father, on the other hand, is a respected attorney who uses words and precedents to fight his battles. He is on the right side of the law. Therefore, Molly needs less vigilance and protection. Not that I need to justify myself as a mother to you at all, but I happen to love all of my children equally.
Sam: "All" of your children? You're making it sound like you had more than one. If you had just two, you would say "both of my children."
Alexis: Stop talking for one minute. I'm going to tell you something. Maybe a little honesty, a little painful honesty, might get you to understand and comprehend me just a little teeny bit -- it might even teach you something.
Sam: This ought to be good.
Alexis: There was another daughter, in another lifetime.
Lucky: I'm sorry.
Elizabeth: I'm sorry.
Lucky: I love you. I just wish that love were enough.
Jason: You're like a light to Sonny. He thinks that you're going to save him --
Jason: But he's going to destroy --
Emily: Shut up! I'm not that scared little girl outside Kelly’s anymore. I almost died of cancer. I was raped by a man with my husband's face and I shot him. I hate it when everyone treats me like I've never been outside of an ivory tower.
Jason: Well, when it comes to Sonny's life, you haven't been, Emily.
Emily: I love Sonny! What am I supposed to do with that? I can't just shut it off. Believe it or not, I've tried -- we both have. And I believe that love can make a difference, even in your world.
Jason: I just hope that you don't think Sonny is going to change for you, because he won’t. You're the one who's going to have to change. I don't think you understand what I'm trying to say. Sonny can't control what's inside of him. When the guilt and the anger take over, he's not the Sonny you think you love. He's dangerous; he's irrational. You'll think he hates you in the moment, and you know what? In the moment he probably will, and that's when you're going to have to change to protect yourself. And once you become the woman who can be with Sonny and survive, you won't be the woman he wants.
Alexis: Sit down. Please. When I was 16 years old, I was in boarding school and I got pregnant. My father had me sent away to give the baby up for adoption.
Sam: What about your baby's father?
Alexis: He never knew. That's the way my father wanted it.
Sam: Did you love him?
Alexis: That's not important.
Sam: What are you saying? Are you saying that your baby wasn't conceived in love? What happened to your baby? Did you even look for her? Did she even matter to you at all?
Alexis: Why do you care?
Emily: That was an ugly thing to say.
Jason: We live ugly lives. What Sonny sees in you is a chance to start over. He sees a future in you that will never happen.
Emily: You can't know that.
Jason: I do know that. You might be -- you might be happy with Sonny for a while, but it's going to flip on you, Emily. Sooner or later, Sonny's need to punish himself is going to wreck whatever you have and you will be left broken.
Emily: If Sonny's such a horrible person, it makes me wonder how he's inspired your loyalty all these years.
Jason: He's not a horrible person. And I am loyal. Sonny has been like a brother to me. I know the way he acts during that time is not his fault. You know, something inside him takes over, and he wants to fight it, but he can't fight it. He doesn't want to be saved; he wants to pay for everything that he's done. He wants to suffer. And you're exactly what he's been looking for -- the biggest hurt, the biggest punishment, the one he can't come back from.
Emily: You tell me that I have to change. Well, I can do that, and Sonny can, too. He doesn't have to be the self-destructive black hole that you seem to think he is.
Jason: That's what it is, Emily.
Emily: You've frozen Sonny in your mind, just like you've frozen me. Ah -- you're the one who's stuck in place, Jason. That means you're the one who's going to be left behind.
Sam: You said you wanted me to comprehend you, and I was just thinking maybe if I learned a little bit about your experience, I would learn for myself.
Alexis: You know, this isn't a secret. You can't use this against me. You wanted to know if I ever thought about my daughter after I gave her away? She was the first thought every morning and the last thought every night. I thought about her all the time because I didn't want to give her up. I was not in charge of my life at that time; I was just a kid myself. I wouldn't have been able to support her in any way. And my father would've disowned me if I didn't do what he wanted -- ordered. I don't suppose there's any way that you could ever know this about me, but I was very sheltered and very controlled. I will tell you that there is no way that I would've survived on my own, much less with a kid. So I -- I wrote her -- I wrote her letters that I kept in a box. I knew that they would never get sent, but I -- I wrote them anyway because it somehow kept me connected to her.
Sam: What did you say?
Alexis: I just wrote about feeling guilty, feeling sad. Sometimes I would just write the mundane details of the day.
Sam: When did you stop?
Alexis: When I realized that writing the letters was pointless, that what was done was done, and letter writing really wasn't going to change anything. So I moved on.
Sam: Ahem. Did you ever try and find her? I mean -- um -- you're a woman of many resources -- you're a lawyer, for God's sake.
Alexis: That's exactly why I didn't spend much time looking, because I knew the law, and I also was very aware of my father's thoroughness. So the chances of finding her were minimal at best. When Kristina was sick, I hired someone to look for her. She needed a donor, but there wasn't enough time because she was deteriorating way too fast and, mercifully, your baby saved her.
Sam: So you had no reason to look for the daughter you gave up?
Alexis: Rightly or wrongly, I let go. Ric is the one who brought it up.
Alexis: When he was sick in the hospital, he, I think, was trying to get some perspective on his life and he said to me that he thought I was keeping something from him, something defining. He knew, and out of respect for him, I told him the truth. And the floodgates opened all over again and I haven't been able to stop thinking about her. So I set out to find her.
Sam: So you're looking for your daughter now?
Alexis: Not anymore. She's dead.
Lulu: This is way too much information.
Luke: You have to know the basics. They never change.
Lulu: I already know them.
Luke: You just think you do. Protection is the key. I've got a book you should read. It's got really good pictures.
Lulu: No, I am not interested.
Luke: Ok. The most important element is a credible poker face. Never let your opponent know what you have in your hand or what you're thinking.
Lulu: Well, how am I doing? Full house -- 10s over 4s.
Luke: Get out of here! How'd you do that?
Lulu: Easy -- I'm my father's daughter.
Jason: I used to be able to tell when people were lying. I'm not so good at it anymore.
Emily: Sonny and I should've been honest with you from the start, Jason. For that, I'm sorry.
Jason: Well, you're not lying now. You do believe everything you're telling me. But Sonny is lying to you and himself.
Emily: He's not.
Jason: He's promising you a future that he cannot deliver, and he knows it. That's the difference -- you believe, he only wants to. He knows it's a matter of time before everything falls apart.
Emily: You're seeing what you want to justify the way you're acting.
Jason: Are you going to give him up?
Jason: Guard! I'm done here.
Alexis: She died at the age of 3. She was struck by a car and died at the scene. And now I'm right back where I started, wondering what she looked like, if she has my eyes, she sounds like me -- that sort of thing.
Sam: What if you were wrong?
Alexis: I'm sorry?
Sam: What if your daughter were alive? What would you do?
Singer: Deep down inside ourselves deeper than
Alexis: I would tell her that I'm sorry.
Singer: Scared tonight
[Knock on door]
Man: Hello? I thought I heard voices in here.
Alexis: You're a prince among men.
Guard: Is everybody ok?
Alexis: We're fine. If you could just leave the door open.
Alexis: Maybe loss is more of a common ground than you originally thought.
Singer: You might be everything I dreamed for
Sam: You forgot your glasses, mom.
Singer: Baby, take my hand and hold on
>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "General Hospital."
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Robin: Noah hasn't regained consciousness yet. In the meantime, let's take care of you.
Tracy: Alice won't let us have the morning paper.
Alice: You don't want to see it, either.
Carly: Oh, my God.
Sonny: Now you're going to lecture me?
Ric: I'm here to offer my help.
Sam: I know you're mad at me. Can we just please go home?
Jason: I don't want to.
