Holly: Ready?

Luke: Come get it while it's hot!

Holly: The linen closet still has a bunch of sheets in it.

Ooh. A nice, hot bath -- I can't wait. It's going to feel so good.

Robert: Yeah, for us, too.

Holly: Nice and hot -- just how I like it.

Luke: Me, too.

Holly: Oh. Paradise.

Sonny: I don't want the kids to get in the middle of my fight with jason, and I'm glad that you feel the same way.

Carly: I can't believe my dad taught me a lesson.

Sonny: Regardless of how I feel about john durant, I'm sorry that you lost your father.

Carly: I knew my father less than two years. Most of the time I was angry with him for one reason or another. But I love my father, and I appreciate the time I spent with him. And michael and morgan need to know their father, and I could never keep them away from you.

Sonny: The boys need both of us. They got to know that we're not trying to pull them in two different directions, you know? That we can all, you know, get along, work this out. So, what do we do about the situation between you and me?

Carly: There is no "you and me."

Monica: Oh.

Emily: Hey.

Monica: Hi. Hi, sweetie.

Emily: Sam's getting weaker.

Monica: Did jason tell you that?

Emily: I was out last night with kelly lee and she mentioned it.

Monica: Well, we've been giving sam regular transfusions, but her pressure keeps dropping and her blood is not clotting.

Sam: Jason?

Monica: Um -- he's going to be right back. He just went to do something for you, sam.

Jason: Sam wants only one thing, and I have to give it to her so she can let go, so you need to understand how --

alexis: Jason, why are you here?

Jason: Sam is your daughter.

Alexis: Ahem. Jason, there's obviously some kind of mistake.

Jason: After danny died, they did a D.N.A. Test.

Alexis: Jason, you've made a mistake. Sam not my daughter. My daughter is dead.

Jax: Everyone ready to take little john home?

Michael: Yeah. But don't you think we should wait for mom? I mean, she knows way more about babies than we do.

Jax: Well, that's true, but your mom is on an errand. I don't know long that's going to take. Little john has been in the hospital all his life and he wants a taste of the real world. Don't you, little guy?

Michael: It's a lot of work, jax.

Jax: I know. That's why we have a baby nurse back at the apartment. We're not going to be completely on our own.

Michael: Ok.

Morgan: Come on.

Michael: Yes?

Nikolas: I was on my way toee john. Appears I'm too late.

Michael: Well, john's going home with his dad.

[Robin groans]

Patrick: Downing tequila shots, probably not the best way to start a long flight, huh?

Robin: Well, at least I know I can get some rest, if someone I know -- who happens to be sitting next to me -- would stop talking.

Patrick: You begged me to come along.

Robin: "Begged"?

Patrick: I'm only here because I owe you for the help you gave me with my dad's transplant.

Robin: All right, fine. You thk you're doing me a favor. Duly noted. Now, will you please be quiet so I can go to sleep?

Patrick: Well, first we got to set some parameters.

Robin: Oh --

patrick: If your dad needs surgery, I'm the one to do it.

Robin: Mm-hmm.

Patrick: But there's no way on god's green earth that I'm going to jeopardize my hands on some wild-goose chase to save your aging-dad super-spy.

Robin: Ok, your selfless heroism overwhelms me. I'm shutting my eyes now.

Lulu: Thanks for coming along with me.

Dillon: Oh, yeah, it's really nice. I mean, knowing your dad, things could get a little dicey.

Lulu: Well, considering all the capers he's dragged you into, I'm hoping you can help, you know, figure out how to find him.

Dillon: Actually, you know what? I've been trying to get ahold of waldo, his pilot friend, but every time I do, it's busy.

Lulu: The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that my dad and robert are in desperate need of our help.

Holly: Thank you, luke. You're such a sweetheart.

Luke: I do what I can. Your turn. Make sure the water's extra hot.

Robert: Holly is in enough hot water.

Holly: Actually, it is cooling off a bit.

Luke: See? The lady wants hot water. Go get it -- while I scrub her back.

Robert: Wait, wait, wait, wait. This is my ex-wife. Any scrubbing and I'm the scrubber.

Luke: How can you be like this after I loaned you the shirt off my back?

Robert: Does that mean I meant to loan you my ex-wife?

Holly: Listen, boys, I appreciate your concern, but, you know, all this bickering is giving me a bit of a headache.

Luke: Oh. Is there anything I can do to add to your enjoyment?

Robert: More hot water?

Holly: Ah!

Robert: Old reflexes just aren't what they used to be, are they?

Luke: My reflexes are fine.

Holly: Oh, look at the sheet -- it's wet. I can't dry myself othat now.

Robert: That's all right, luke will get another.

Holly: Oh, would you, luke? Oh, thank you. The linen closet's in the upstairs hallway.

Luke: Sure, I don't mind.

Robert: Hmm. Goodbye.

Holly: Thank you.

Luke: I'll be right back.

Robert: Well. How's about a massage? Now, as I recall, you used to like this.

Holly: You did always have the best hands, robert.

Robert: Yeah.

Carly: Before you were the father of my children, and before you were the man I loved, you were jason's friend. And he admired and respected you and he had faith in you. And now that faith is gone, and you don't deserve his loyalty any more than you deserve mine, sonny.

Sonny: If that's true, why did I stand by you during your nervous breakdown, carly?

Carly: Because you felt guilty.

Sonny: I protecd you. I did everything I could to get your sanity back.

Carly: Maybe you did it to make yourself feel better. Or for the children. I know you're all about your children, mainly because they're a reflection of yourself.

Sonny: I love the boys.

Carly: I know you love the boys.

Sonny: Then why you twisting this around?

Carly: Because you, me, and jason -- we were connected, sonny. It didn't matter who we were sleeping with, we were a family, and now that bond is broken. It's broken.

Sonny: Because he stole from me --

carly: Oh, my god.

Sonny: To get his way.

Carly: No, sonny. You broke it. You broke it because you're selfish and you couldn't do the one thing jason asked -- after everything he's done for you.

Alexis: I've already explained all this to sam. I had a daughter, I gave her up for adoption, she died.

Jason: You got pregnant when you were 16. You took the spring semester off from your school, briarton-griggs academy in new hampshire. You went to the bilmont clinic in maine and had a baby girl on sunday, may 11, 1980, mother's day.

Alexis: How do you -- how do you know all that?

Jason: Because that's when sam was born -- at the bilmont clinic. We have the records, alexis. We tracked down the other mother who gave birth at bilmont that day, she had a boy. Your baby was a girl, it was sam.

Alexis: I saw the death certificate.

Jason: Look, if you need to run a D.N.A. Test, that's fine. But I'm telling you that sam's your daughter, and she needs you right now! (Blondie) one way or another,

Holly: Could you be a love and find out what's keeping luke?

Robert: Absolutely nothing.

Holly: Well, then where is he?

Robert: Oh, he's close by. As soon as I leave the room, he'll suddenly manifest from out of the walls and run in here eager to pat you dry.

Holly: I'd be flattered if I wasn't wrinkling into a prune.

Robert: Shall we put my little theory to the test?

Holly: Luke? Luke? Have you got that towel? Only if you have one. I'm going to he to get out of the bath, and robert's going to have to dry me off with the nun's habit.

Robert: Do I know him, or do i know him?

Luke: Uh -- sorry, I got a little distracted.

Holly: Distracted? By what?

Luke: This mansion -- so many amazing architectural features.

Holly: He's on a cultural tour.

Robert: Luke spencer has three priorities in life -- money, booze, and women -- not necessarily in that order, I might add. Now, we've already discovered the wine cellar, you're lying naked in a tub. That just leaves money.

Luke: God. I can't even take a stroll around here without getting the third degree?

Robert: Whatever you discovered, I get 50% of.

Holly: I beg your pardon. This is my late husband's villa. Whatever luke has found belongs to me.

Nikolas: I'll take it from here, thanks. Not in a hurry to get out of here, are you?

Lucky: I've been pushing to leave the hospital for a week. Elizabeth wouldn't hear of it.

Nikolas: You weren't well enough.

Lucky: Right. It's just a wild coincidence that dr. Drake decided to take off all of a sudden this morning.

Nikolas: Oh, please don't start on that again.

Lucky: Well, I saw elizabeth and drake together.

Nikolas: Talking about work.

Lucky: You know what? Elizabeth has been lying about where she's going at night. I called her, and she wouldn't answer her cell. She says she's at home with cam, but cam's at audrey'S. Elizabeth has been using my stay at the hospital --

nikolas: Luy, she's been out of her mind with worry, working overtime, trying to be a mother to cam, and all the while trying to spend as much time with you as possible.

Lucky: Which wasn't much time at all. She's just been busy somewhere else.

Nikolas: She's not cheating on you.

Lucky: Well, that's what I thought -- till I saw her with patrick.

Nikolas: Ok. If you have any doubt, then you owe it to yourself and your wife to ask her what's going on.

Elizabeth: Ok, we're all set. I got your prescription, and I can't wait to get you home.

Jason: Think about it -- no one else was a match for kristina, but sam's baby saved her.

Alexis: The baby and kristina were both sonny's children.

Jason: Well, and you and sam are mother and daughter, sam and kristina are half sisters.

Alexis: No, no, no.

Jason: Alexis, what proof do -- what proof do you have that your daughter is dead? Some form in a -- in a lawyer's office? Why would it even be there? Who goes back and puts a death certificate in an adoption file? Nobody does that.

Alexis: My father. Ahem. My father -- ahem -- didn't want anyone to find out. It was all a lie.

Jason: Sam is running out of time, and she needs you.

[Monitor beeps]

Sam: You are a great mom. Jason is very lucky to have you.

Monica: Well, he didn't always feel that way.

Sam: Jason has trouble expressing his feelings. But he loves so deeply. Oh, god. If anything happens to me, stay close to him, please? Let him know --


Monica: Her pressure's dropping. She's going to need a transfusion. Sam? Sam, come on, now. You got to fight, sam.

If you have allergies,

Holly: What do you think?

Robert: My compliments to whoever left that behind.

Holly: I found it in a trunk full of old clothes. It's better than a nun's habit, don't you think?

Luke: Do the tumblers on a zeiss safe turn right or left?

Robert: Right! Ahem. You know, as pretty as that dress is, the sheet looked pretty good, too.

Holly: You're full of compliments. I like that in a man.

Robert: As I recall, there's a lot of things you used to like.

Holly: We're going to have to spend some time revisiting those memories, aren't we?

Luke: When you hit the combination, does it "ping" or "clink"?

Holly: "Ping"!

Robert: Well, would you like a drink? Wine?

Holly: Yes, please.

Luke: Did you say "ping"?

Holly: Yes!

Robert: This is a cabernet similar to the one we shared on that terrace in savannah.

Holly: How nice.

Robert: Also the nightclub in paris.

Luke: Is it a five-digit combination or six?

Holly: Oh, I'll do it myself --

robert: No, no -- this is just what he wants. He wants to get you back there so he can drool all over you while he tries to ineptly open the safe. I can do it, I can crack a zeiss in 10 minutes -- five.



[Door closes]

Holly: Luke? Robert? Is everything all right?

Luke: Everything is fine. Absolutely -- hey-hey -- fine. No problems at all. Would you mind pouring me a glass of whatever you're drinking, english?

Robert: Agh! I'll get you for this, spencer!

Holly: You tricked poor robert, didn't you?

Luke: Poor robert -- he's always been such a sore loser. Now, then. Where were we?

Emily: I was at the hospital visiting sam.

Sonny: How bad is she?

Emily: The doctors don't think she's going to live much longer.

Sonny: Jason's with her?

Emily: Yeah, he went to run an errand, and I was going to wait till he got back. And then sam had a crisis, and I realized that the last thing jason needs is to deal with me on top of everything else.

Sonny: He's going to need you.

Emily: Sam's all that matters to jason now. He's losing the woman he loves.

[Emily sighs]

Sonny: Sam's a good person. She doesn't deserve any of this. Oh, man. I wish I could be with jason, you know, just, I mean, helping him if -- if she dies. I don't know.

Emily: Well, then why don't you?

[Phone rings]

Alexis' voice: Hi, it's axis. Please leave a message after the tone.

[Voicemail beeps]

Ric: Alexis, it's me. I just got back to your office and you're not here. Where are you? What happened with jason? I'm worried about you. Just call me, all right? Do you know where ms. Davis went?

Secretary: She left a little while ago with jason morgan.

Ric: Did she say where she was going?

Secretary: No, but they were in a hurry, and she seemed upset.

Jason: How's she doing?

Monica: Oh, I'm glad you're back. Well, her pressure dropped. We gave her another transfusion, but her B.P. Is not responding the way it should.

Alexis: May I sit with her?

Jason: It's ok.

Monica: Jason, I got to be honest with you. I don't know how long sam has, and I know that she would want to spend it with you.

Jason: Alexis is sam's mother.

Monica: What?

Sam: Mom.

alexis: Hi.

Sam: I'm dreaming again.

Alexis: Not unless I am, too.

Sam: You're real. You're real, but I don't know how.

Alexis: Jason told me. I want to say the magic words to you right now that's going to make all of this all better for you, but I don't know what they are. All I can tell you is that I am here, and I'm not going anywhere this time.

Sam: Thank you.

Alexis: It's ok.

Sam: Thanks, mom.

Sonny: Jason and I are -- are on opposite sides now.

Emily: You could still reach out to him, sonny, tell him how sorry you are about sam.

Sonny: I know how jason deals with loss. If sam dies, he's going to shut down. He's got the business, he's not going to give it back to me, and he's never going to accept me being with you.

Emily: I guess there's no middle ground.

Sonny: Best thing we can do is just keep our distance from jason.

Emily: Jason's acting out of love, but he's made all the wrong choices. He's managed to cut himself off, and now he needs us the most.

Sonny: I know what jason's facing. To watch someone you love die because of you --

sonny: Oh.

[Sonny sighs]

Sonny: Listen to me.

Sonny: I could not bear to lose you.

Emily: If there's one thing that I've learned from all this, it's that life and love are precious, and we have to hold on to everything we've got.

Sonny: That's what I intend to do.

Carly: I'm sorry for stranding you at the hospital with the boys.

Jax: No, no, it's fine, really. I mean, the boys were great. They sure like to play.

Carly: Yeah, but you just brought john home. You don't need my kids here driving you crazy. I'm sorry.

Jax: No, but you know what? Michael was great. He just -- he knows a lot about babies.

Carly: He gave you advice about babies?

Jax: Yep, he sure did. He was checking out my diaper supply, and then he was telling me I had to be careful not to overheat the milk. And then -- then he started grilling norma, the -- the baby nurse, about --

carly: Oh --

jax: Her knowledge and -- and credentials.

Carly: Did she quit?

Jax: No, she didn't quit. She had a very good sense of humor. Besides, she thought that he was delightful.

Carly: Oh. Well, then she's going to fit in great if she likes my kids. So where are they? Where are the kids?

Jax: John's down for a nap, and the boys -- I locked them in the office to play with my pinball machine. I'm just kidding.

Carly: Oh -- well, I will see you in a couple days.

Jax: What?

Carly: I'm just kidding.

Jax: Oh, come here, come here.

Carly: Hey.

Jax: Yeah. So, how'd it go with sonny?

Carly: Uh -- huh.

Jax: You know, if there's going to be a custody battle, I want you to know that --

carly: There's not going to be a custody battle.

Jax: You changed your mind?

Carly: One of the last things my father said to me was how he regretted the wasted time, and I can't leave my boys with that kind of regret.

Jax: What about your anger at sonny?

Carly: I've completely lost my faith in sonny. But I can't keep michael and morgan away from their father because that wouldn't be right.

Jax: What about me keeping john from his father? Is that right?

Alexis: The's a lot that we need to talk about, and a lot that neither of us understand, but for now we'll just hold hands.

Sam: I'm glad jason told you.

Alexis: Me, too.

Sam: Is he here?

Jason: I'm right here.

Sam: Thank you for bringing her. I know it's probably the last thing you wanted to do. But it was my gift.

Jason: I would do anything for you.

Alexis: I want to check on her condition. I'll be right back.

Sam: Thank you.

Jason: I'm happy for you.

Sam: I love you.

Jason: I love you, too. I always will.

[ Woman ]

When dad was first diagnosed

with alzheimer's,

Elizabeth: Ok. Oh, cam, we are finally home. Ok! Go on in! Yay! Daddy's home!

Lucky: You did all that?

Elizabeth: I think daddy likes it, cam.

Lucky: Yeah, it's great.

Elizabeth: We are just so happy to have you home, aren't we, punky? Here, want to sit on daddy's lap just for a minute?

Lucky: It's ok.

Elizabeth: Yeah.

Lucky: I missed you guys.

Elizabeth: Ah.

Lucky: It's ok. I missed you.

Elizabeth: Give daddy hugs.

Lucky: I'm just really glad to be home.

Elizabeth: Aw.

Lucky: I'm really sorry about this whole mess.

Elizabeth: N't -- don't apologize for anything. We are just so glad to all be together again. Hey, cam, want to go get dad his special something we baked for him? Here we go, buddy.

Lucky: Some brownies?

Elizabeth: Oh. Just going to have to wait and see. Ok.

Nikolas: I rest my case.

Lucky: I've been a fool. Elizabeth's the best thing that's ever happened to me. I never should've doubted her.

Carly: Our situations are completely different.

Jax: Yeah, but I'm still keeping john from his real father.

Carly: Michael and morgan already know sonny. And if he suddenly disappears from their lives, they will miss him. And they're going to blame themselves because that's what kids do, but john is just a little baby. He doesn't know that nikolas is his biological father, so he's never going to miss him.

Jax: Until he's 18 and I tell him the truth.

Carly: Which is going to come with some pain and confusion.

Jax: Do youhink it's all worth it? I mean, honestly?

Carly: I don't know. That's a decision you have to make, but I'm telling you I will support whatever you decide. I will.

Jax: Oh, it's -- you know, every day I'm more convinced that that's what courtney would've wanted -- for john to grow up in a loving home with me, with you, you know, with his extended family -- you, michael, and morgan.

Carly: That works for me.

Jax: Ok. I'm going to have to ask you a huge favor.

Carly: Oh, what's that?

Jax: My mom keeps calling. She's dying to meet john.

Carly: Why have you been putting her off?

Jax: Because I didn't, you know, want her to get attached to him if I was going to give him up. But now that I'm convinced that john should stay with me, I think it's time for him to meet his grandma. I was hoping that you and the boys would come with me.

Alexis: Monica --

monica: Huh?

Alexis: Can you tell me what's going on with sam?

Monica: Well, actually, dr. Lee has been overseeing sam's case. She can really answer your questions.

Alexis: Thank you. Dr. Lee, I want you to tell me what I can do to help her.

Kelly: Sam was shot in the lower back. During surgery to repair the bullet wound, she began to hemorrhage. Though the operation was successful, she developed a condition called C.C.D.

Alexis: So how do you treat that?

Kelly: She's been receiving trsfusions of plasma and blood, but we've been unable to relieve the condition. Her blood pressure continues to drop. I'm sorry. Your daughter is dying.

Alexis: Then you need to find someway to help her.

Sam: I'm so sorry. I have to leave you.

Jason: Don't be sorry -- for anything.

Sam: Jason, I'm tired. I'm tired.

Jason: Just try tget some rest, ok?

Sam: Can you promise me something, please?

Jason: Anything.

Sam: Don't let them take my ring.

Jason: I promise.

Alexis: Jason -- ahem -- would you mind if I sat with her for a minute?

Jason: She just fell asleep.

Alexis: I convinced dr. Lee to give her more transfusions. Apparently the C.C.D. Has reversed itself -- in some cases. Ahem. Do you mind if I wake her up and tell her?

Jason: That's fine.

Alexis: Sam, it's alexis. Sam, wake up. Sam, wake up. Please, wake up, sam. I have...

Carly: Well, you know, there's no funeral arrangements to make for my father. In his will said he didn't want a ceremony, which is kind of ironic, considering the glory hound that he was, you know?

Jax: Maybe he didn't want you to go to the trouble.

Carly: Maybe he didn't think anyone would come.

Jax: Look, if you want to have a ceremony for your father, then we can delay the trip.

Carly: No, no, I want to get michael and morgan out of town.

Jax: You sure?

Carly: Yes, I'm sure. I don't want them to see what's going on with sonny and jason, and I don't want to see it, either.

Jax: All right, then. I'll make the arrangements.

Carly: Where are we going?

Jax: Australia, great barrier reef -- lady jane's taken a hoe down there for the season.

Carly: Oh. So we get to snorkel and swim and --

jax: Absolutely. You'll love it, it's beautiful.

Carly: That's great. Here, I'm going to give him to you. I'm going to go tell michael and morgan.

Jax: Hey.

Carly: Ok.

Jax: Did you hear that, little john? Hmm? We're going to go to australia, and you're going to meet your grandma jane.

Robin: Oh, this place was probably pretty amazing in its day.

Dillon: Oh, yeah. No, this -- this is totally the place that luke told waldo about.

Lulu: The lights are on inside.

Dillon: Maybe we should check it out.

Patrick: Ow! Damn it!

Robin: What?

Patrick: Robin, if my hand gets infected, it's on your head. What was that for?

Robin: Could've been poisonous. I'll check my guidebook.

Patrick: How did you do that?

Robin: I have no idea.

Dillon: Hey, maybe we should, like, scout around first or something.

Lulu: Well, why? We know that they're in there.

Dillon: We know -- we know somebody's in there. We don't know it's luke.

Luke: Well, how is that, english? Does that feel good?

Holly: Mmm.

Luke: Mmm, yeah.

Lulu: Yeah, now we do.

Dillon: Ok.

Lulu: Oh -- oh, my god! I am scarred for life! I am so, so scarred for life!

[Cameron fusses]

Elizabeth: Oh, somebodys really ready for a nap. Ok.

Lucky: Thanks for the party, cam.

Elizabeth: We did good, huh, buddy?

Lucky: Yeah, you really surprised me.

Elizabeth: Can you say "night-night" to daddy? Say "night-night."

Lucky: Night-night.

Elizabeth: I'll be right back.

Lucky: Ok. Night.

Lucky: Hey, where'd you put my prescription?

Elizabeth: It's in my purse, but I'll -- I'll be able to get it for you. Oh, and you know what? Dr. Drake -- he changed your -- what is it? -- Your morphine for hydrocodone.

Elizabeth: Ok. Did you find your prescription?

Ric: Well, jason's made another move. I think he might be losing it.

Sonny: Jason's at the hospital with -- with sam.

Ric: No, no, he camlooking for alexis. I was with alexis at john durant's office, and jason -- jason camen and he insisted on speaking to alexis alone. So I -- I went to the courthouse and I filed some papers, and when I came back, they were both gone. The secretary said that they left together and that alexis was visibly upset. I've been calling alexis' cell phone, sonny. I can't get ahold of her. My only guess is that jason has taken her somewhere.

Sonny: To sam.

Ric: To sam? Why -- why would he take her to sam? Sam despises alexis. Unless -- less sam wants to make peace with alexis. I don't --

sonny: Yeah, something like that.

Ric: "Something like that"? What -- "something like that"? What are you talking about, sonny? What --

sonny: Alexis can tell you.

Ric: No, sonny. Alexis has disappeared with a man who tried to kill me, so why don't you tell me what's going on.

Sonny: It's not --

ric: What?

Sonny: Ok, do you want me to tell you? I will tell you. The child that alexis gave up when she was 16 --

ric: Right?

Sonny: Isam. Alexis is sam's mother.

Kelly: Sam is continuing to weaken.

Alexis: Then give her another transfusion.

Kelly: I'll arrange it. But I doubt sam will regain consciousness. I'm so sorry. If it helps at all, she's not in any pain.

Alexis: No, that doesn't help at all. What would help is if you make her better. Give her a transfusion if that's what it takes. If it's -- if it's an operation, you do that. Keeping her alive is what I need you to do.

Alexis: This isn't -- this is not the way it was supposed to happen!

>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "general hospital."

>> On the next "general hospital" --

luke: Do you mind?

Lucky: So have you heard from patrick?

Elizabeth: Why would I?

Ric: Sam is my stepdaughter?

Sonny: The more you think about it, the worse it gets.

Alexis: You keep acting as if there's nothing you can do.

Jason: We're not just going
