General Hospital Transcript Monday 5/22/06
Provided By Boo
Nikolas: It was presumptuous of me to show up without calling, but I missed john when he was in australia. You're his father, of course. I understand that you want him to meet his family. I just -- I mean, in any case, I overstepped and I apologize for any inconvience but --
jax: It's not a question of convenience. I'm concerned about what's best for john.
Nikolas: Jax, we've been through this. I'm not a threat to your son. So why have you suddenly changed your mind about allowing me to spend time with him?
Robin: Where did you get this?
Maxie: At the hospital. It was in your mailbox -- by mistake, robin. It had your room number on it, but it didn't have your name, and monica quartermaine told me to open it.
Robin: Did she see it?
Maxie: No. I just took it.
Robin: Maxie, I don't want to know this. I -- I don't want to be the one that gets to decide if nikolas knows that john is really his baby.
Sonny: "Bipolar disorder." What -- a new course you're taking in school?
Emily: No, I -- I picked them up tonight at the hospital.
Emily: I'm concerned about you.
Sonny: Because i got upset over pasta?
Emily: Sometimes mood swings can indicate a chemical imbalance.
Sonny: You think I'm mentally ill?
Jason: How do you feel?
Sam: Tired. It doesn't make sense. How long was I asleep?
Jason: Too long. So much has happened.
Sam: Tell me.
Jason: Well, maybe the doctors should look at you first. I --
sam: Hey, hey. Can you let her go get them? I don't want to let go of your hand.
P.A. Announcer: Dr. Drake, 2502. Dr. Noah drake, call 2502.
Patrick: No, you're better than good. You're -- you're in a class all your own.
Elizabeth: Oh, you don't have to resort to flattery. I already told you I'd keep going.
Patrick: Flattery implies that I'm being insincere.
Elizabeth: No. Really?
Patrick: When it comes to you, every word I say is the truth. You're remarkable.
Lucky: Yeah, and she's also married, not that either one of you seem to care.
Lucky: Ye, , well, you spent the last three hours with patrick at the cosmopolitan and it wasn't the first time.
Patrick: You're off-base here.
Elizabeth: Wait. You're right. I have been meeting patrick at the cosmopolitan -- for weeks.
Emily: I don't believe you're mentally ill. Sonny, I did the research because some of your -- some of the things you're doing could mean that you have bipolar disorder or manic depression.
Sonny: Those are mental illnesses, aren't they?
Emily: It's a chemical imbalance that can be controlled by medication.
Sonny: There's nothing wrong with me.
Emily: Well, even if you do have ahemical imbalance, sonny, it doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with you.
Sonny: Ok, hold on, hold on! Tell me why exactly are you so worried?
Emily: Ok. Um -- maybe it was the roses.
Sonny: Oh. You don't like the roses?
Emily: No, no, no, no. Hold on, hold on a minute. Sonny, listen to me. I loved the roses, ok, but there were jusso many of them.
Nny: Ok, so manroses -- who cares?
Emily: And this good mood that you've been in came out of nowhere. It has nothing to do with what's really happening in your life. You lost your business. Your dearest, most closest friend took it away from you. A woman you care deeply about is terribly injured. Carly took both of your kids out of the country with jax.
Sonny: I'm happy you're here. You make me see things in a new way.
Emily: That doesn't explain the maserati or --
sonny: Well, the --
emily: Wanting to go to vegas, especially with ric.
Sonny: There are a lot of important things that have changed in my life. I told you, I'm relieved. I don't have to -- I don't have to watch my back anymore. I -- you know, I'm -- I want to have a little fun!
Emily: You just flew into a rage and threw the table over because the pasta sauce wasn't perfect.
Sonny: And I said I was sorry about that!
Emily: Sonny, you don't have to say you're sorry. I'm just trying to help you here.
Sonny: Yet you can't at this point. I've had a temper my whole life. I'm sure you've been warned. It gets worse when I get hit or punched because the i really lose it. I get out of control -- sometimes I don't even know what I'm doing.
Emily: Doesn't that worry you?
Sonny: Doesn't worry me because I know why it happens. Same reason I'm claustrophobic -- because my stepfather locked me in a closet. He beat the hell out of me. And it was dark in there and I couldn't breathe and I couldn't get out, so I'd get mad. And I'd have that rage and I'd hold it. I'd have to hold it inside of me, and sometimes, you know, it comes out and I don't know -- it just gets the best of me, but it has nothing to do with -- with bipolar or chemical imbalance or -- or whatever you want to call it.
Emily: Sonny? Wouldn't you want to know for sure?
Sonny: I have scars -- ok? -- That may never completely heal. Sometimes, I lose control, ok? But I will promise you that I will never turn that rage on you.
Sonny: Do you believe me?
Jason: You had something wrong with your blood. Do you remember that?
Sam: I remember I had to get blood transfusions.
Jason: Right, right. After a while, you got so weak you lost consciousness. And the doctors didn't think that you were going to live, but we made them keep giving you blood transfusions anyway.
Jason: Me and alexis.
Sam: I mean, that must be nice for a change for the two of you -- to be on the same side of something.
Jason: Yeah. All that mattered was keeping you alive. You know, a lot of people gave blood for you -- nikolas, mike, elizabeth, sonny.
Sam: Sonny? Sonny helped?
Sam: I mean, that's really good the two of you aren't fighting anymore. That's --
jason: Well, you know, it's not the same. I mean, I'm not going to talk about business. All that matters is getting you -- getting you better.
Sam: Just having you here -- best medicine in the world. I am so sorry.
Jason: For what?
Sam: Oh. For everything that you've gone through. I know how scary it is, jason. I can remember just sitting with you when you were sick and watching you breathe. I would talk to you, and I would tell both of us that you were going to be ok.
Sam: Did you talk to me?
Jason: All the time.
Sam: And I missed it.
Sam: What did you say?
Jason: What -- what do you mean?
Sam: "What do you mean?" I want to hear it, everything. What did you say?
Jason: Um -- I said that -- that I loved you and I'm sorry for letting this happen to you. I promised I would keep you safe. I've got to make sure my life never hurts you again. I tried to tell you what you mean to me, but I couldn't really get the words out. Doesn't matter, anyway -- nothing I say would be -- would be enough. And you have made my life so much better and it almost got you killed --
sam: No. No. Stop. Stop saying that. Hey. It wasn't your fault. And if I had to choose between getting shot or you being killed, I would choose this every single time.
Jason: No, no, never --
sam: Do you understand that?
Jason: Never again, no.
Alexis: I just spoke to the nurse. She's going to find patrick drake.
Sam: Patrick drake? Hey -- wait, whoa. I thought -- I thought dr. Lee was my doctor.
Jason: There were complications. You had to have brain surgery.
Elizabeth: Patrick is treating a patient who lives at the cosmopolitan hotel.
Patrick: It's a closed-head injury that requires private nursing around the clock. Elizabeth mentioned she needed the extra money, so I arranged for her to work for him.
Elizabeth: The hours are flexible, it pays better than being a floor nurse.
Lucky: Why didn't you tell me? Why did you hide it?
Elizabeth: Because -- you're so stressed about money right now and you're worried about yourister and your father and -- and everything else, and you're pushing yourself too rd in rehab just to get back to work, a you have enough to deal with. I didn't want to upset you.
Lucky: I am so sick of you treating me like a child, deciding what I am strong enough to know.
Patrick: You know, this would be the part that you apologize, and thank your wife for busting butt to hold your family together.
Lucky: Why don't you stay the hell away from my marriage! Stay the hell away from my wife.
Robin: Why didn't you just give this to nikolas?
Maxie: I tried. You don't want to know how weird it got.
Maxie: That's why I called you -- because you always know the right thing to do.
Robin: I don't know about that.
Maxie: Robin, you're the closest thing I have to a big sister, and I swear to god, when I opened that envelope, the first thing I wanted to do was call jesse.
Robin: Of course you did. I know you miss him.
Maxie: And he would be able to tell me what to do.
Robin: Ok. Um -- have you told anyone else?
Maxie: Just you, and I don't plan on telling anyone.
Robin: Good -- don'T.
Maxie: Look, I don't want to deal with this anymore, ok? I don't trust myself with this kind of secret. But I trust you.
Robin: Maxie, whatever I decide, someone is going to get hurt. Jax adores that baby -- he's already started to bond with him. But that doesn't mean he can take someone else's child and that nikolas is -- I mean, he just lost courtney, he's trying to put his life back together. God knows what he'll do if he finds this out. Carly.
Carly: John went right to sleep.
Nikolas: You see? He wasn't upset by my visit.
Jax: That's not the issue.
Nikolas: What -- what am I missing here? Hmm? What has changed? We all agreed that I would be a part of john's life on your terms, and now you're saying I can't even visit him.
Jax: Proving my point as we speak.
Nikolas: All right, you lost me, you lost me.
Jax: You feel entitled. You feel entitled just to show up here without calling, without --
nikolas: Well, jax, if I had known you were going to take him to australia when he was barely out of the hospital --
jax: I don't have to check in with you. If I want to take john to australia, I will. You see, this is what I mean -- we always end up arguing.
Carly: Look, the tension isn't good for the baby, ok?
Nikolas: All right, fine. Fine. Then I'll visit him when jax isn't around. And we'll make it a point not to argue around john, ok? Can we all -- can we all agree on that?
Nikolas: Excuse me. What? How long ago? Did -- did she leave any trace? No, don't -- don't make excuses. Just find helena and stop her. That iot.
Jax: I take it she's at large again.
Nikolas: Yes, as of an hour ago, she -- yes.
Jax: Well, all the more reason for you to stay away from my son.
Robin: All right, I have to go back to the beginning. Think about this -- with any other research project, assume nothing. Maybe jax doesn't know that nikolas is the father.
Maxie: He knows now.
Robin: Oh, no.
Maxie: I know it was not the right thing to do, but I mailed a copy of the test to jax.
Robin: Why would you do that?
Maxie: So he would pay to keep me quiet.
Robin: You tried to blackmail him?
Maxie: I told you I made a mess of things. I am really embarrassed.
Robin: Ok. Why would you try to get money from jax?
Maxie: Because mac took my car away and I wanted another one? I don't know. I didn't think jax was going to miss the money. Look, I -- I can't deal with this anymore. Please, will you take care of it, ok? I don't want to make things worse than I already have.
Robin: Ok, ok. Nikolas is john's father. He deserves to know that that is his son. But jax is my friend -- he's a good person and he loves that baby.
Maxie: So maybe we just don't say anything.
Robin: You know what? Honestly, if carly wasn't involved in the situation, I probably would have stayed out of it, but with her around, I don't think I can trust him to make the right decision.
Robin: Oh. Hello?
Patrick: Welcome home.
Robin: Hi. How's sam?
Patrick: She's good. She should be waking up any minute. You jet-lagged?
Robin: No, not really. I slept on the plane. Why?
Patrick: Well, in that case, I'd love to take you to dinner tonight.
Epiphany: Sam mccall just woke up.
Patrick: I'll be right there. Meet me at metro court at 8:30.
Robin: I can't wait. Bye.
Maxie: Was that dr. Drake?
Robin: Never mind me and dr. Drake. You need to concentrate on getting your life back together and give yourself time to grieve for jesse.
Maxie: I'll try.
Robin: And as far as the secret of nikolas and his son, I'll figure out what to do, ok?
[ Woman ]
Last fall, I moved
into our dream house...
sam: How am I?
Patrick: I do good work.
Sam: What was wrong with me anyway?
Patrick: You suffered an intracerebral edema with proximal spinal cord compression.
Sam: Ouch. Is that as bad as it sounds?
Patrick: Worse. But you're alert and coherent, your pupils are even and reactive. You don't seem to have suffered any nerve damage, so you should make a full recovery.
Sam: Does jason know?
Patrick: I'm about to tell him.
Patrick: The test results are good. She's reacting excellent. She should make a full recovery.
Patrick: You can thank me at any time.
Alexis: I have great appreciation for your skill, dr. Drake. It's just your bedside manner with the patient's family that could use a little work. Excuse me.
Alexis: Good news. You're going to make a full covery.
Sam: It's kind of strange to wake up and find out that I had brain surgery. But in a way, I guess it's a blessing, right? At least now I don't have to be afraid because all the bad stuff is already over.
Patrick: Don't take her white-water rafting in the next 24 hours, but you don't have to treat her with kid gloves. She's out of danger. I would give you some advice, though -- be honest with her about everything that happened --
P.A. Announcer: Dr. Patrick drake --
patrick: It'll help sam be less disoriented if she knows the truth.
Carly: Oh. Ok. Well, is it just me or did you restock the entire playroom with toys while I was gone?
Sonny: You know, the kids -- they should just have nice things. Did they have -- did they have a good trip?
Carly: They had a great time, they did. I know y're not too happy that I just took themo australia without asking, but I am in a relationship with jax and I'm not going to apologize for that.
Sonny: Well, I'm not asking you to. So they had fun on the beach and --
carly: Oh, they had so much fun. Michael liberated a lizard, I got smashed with jax's mother, and we had a great time. We all got along great. I can't tell if you're really furious and you're just covering or if you really don't care.
Sonny: You're the mother of my children. I'll always care. I just want you to know that I'm not going to be telling you who to be with or how to live your life, again. And I would appreciate it if you did the same with me.
Carly: Well. You don't seem like the sonny I know, but if you're really going to be reasonable for once, who am I to fight it? Ok.
Sonny: Hey. Have a nice time with jax.
Sam: I guess this has all been pretty crazy for you.
Alexis: You have no idea.
Sam: I mean, on one hand, we barely know each other. And on the other, I'm -- I'm your daughter and you're waiting to find out if I'm even going to live or not.
Alexis: I'm glad that you are.
Sam: Thank you for caring.
Alexis: We have a lot to talk about. But I'm really glad that we have the chance to do that.
Sam: Me, too.
Alexis: Yeah, well, I'll let you talk to jason now.
Sam: Thank you.
Sam: Hey. Do you think you could help me scooch up a little bit?
Jason: Whew. You should get some rest.
Sam: You need to stop worrying. The door said that I'm going to be fine.
Jason: And that's all I wanted.
Sam: What's wrong? Did something else happen?
Sam: Jason, just tell me. Tell me, did they have to do another operation? Did they have to do the hysterectomy?
Sam: No. You promise?
Jason: I promise. I promise, you -- you can still have kids.
Sam: Oh, good.
Jason: And you are going to be a great mom.
Sam: Good, because I want to get on that right away -- you know, as soon as we get out of this hospital.
Jason: Ok -- sam?
Sam: I don't want to wait. I don't want to wait to be your wife anymore.
Sam: It's about time I became your wife.
Jason: I can't marry you. My life is too dangerous. I have to stay away from you.
Lulu: Hey. Are you ready?
Dillon: Hey. Wow.
Lulu: Um -- you're going to be late.
Dillon: You look beautiful. Look, like I said before, though, I'm going with georgie, ok?
Lulu: With georgie, your wife. I know. Who else? But I couldn't tell edward that. I had to convince him that I came home from the markham islands to go to the prom, so I put on this stupid dress. Oh, and alice picked these from lila's garden, so it's going to look great on georgie.
Dillon: Thank you.
Lulu: And preston's waiting outside with the bentley.
Dillon: Oh, ok. Um --
lulu: Will you take these?
Dillon: Do you want to come?
Lulu: Oh, no, and tag along on someone else's prom date? No, go. Have fun and make memories, and all that.
Dillon: Ok, thanks. You're the best.
Lulu: Oh, yep, that's me. The best.
Nikolas: Where are you?
Lulu: Nikolas? What -- what's wrong?
Nikolas: Are you back in town?
Lulu: Yeah, I'm at kelly'S.
Nikolas: I need to see you right away.
Jason: I never lied to you, and I'm not going to start now.
Sam: Ok. Ahem -- ok, look. Jason, I don't care what you say, as long as you stay here.
Jason: You almost died because of me.
Sam: But I didn'T. You promised that you were going to be here, and you said that we would be together. Jason, you put a ring on my finger, remember?
Sam: Yes. So why? Why -- why are you saying this?
Jason: I took over sonny's business. I'm in charge now. I can't get out. That makes me a target. And I'm not going to watch you go through something like this again.
Sam: No, no, I am not afraid.
Jason: You almost had to have a hysterectomy because of a bullet that was meant for me. You want to have children more than anything.
Sam: I want to have your children. I want to live our -- our lives together, jason.
Jason: No, I can't -- I can't keep putting you at risk!
Sam: You love me. I know you do.
Jason: I have never loved anyone as much I love you.
Sam: Please -- please. You don't have to do this.
Jason: That's why I'm doing th.
Sam: Please. No, jason, you don't have to do this. Please -- please, don't -- don't do this. Don't leave me. Jason, please. Please, jason. I veve you. Jason -- jason, don't go. Don'T. Please, alexis, go get him.
Sam: Get him before he goes on the evator. Please. Jason!
Alexis: Sam -- sam!
Sam: No -- no.
Alexis: It's all right. It's all right. It's ok?
Sam: No, please, don't let him leave.
Alexis: It's all right, sam.
Sam: Don't let him leave me. Jason, no. Well, you could put a nice new shirt in the wash.
Georgie: I can't believe it. It's actually the prom. I've waited for this for months. I really hope you're not disappointed.
Diego: Why would I be disappointed? You're the most beautiful girl in here.
Lucas: Look who my cousin just walked in with.
Guy: Looks like teenage marriage isn't what it's cracked up to be.
Georgie: This is really amazing when you think about it. It's -- it's aost magical.
Diego: Right, yeah. Let's dance.
Woman: Hey, georgie, who's your date?
Georgie: Oh, hi. Diego alcazar, this is mindy potter.
Diego: Hey, nice to meet you, mindy.
Mindy: Where's dillon? Shouldn't your husband be the date to the prom?
Georgie: Dillon's out of town.
Mindy: I guess it's true. Guys love to escape from their wives. Hmm.
Singer: I don't waste no time on girls I make 'em all be jealous when I don't talk cool
patrick: Are you looking for me?
Patrick: Welcome back.
Emily: Excuse me, epiphany. Have you seen lainey winters, by anyhance?
Epiphany: Um -- dr. Winters has gone home for the day.
Emily: I was hoping to run into her.
Epiphany: Well, you can always schedule an appointment.
Emily: Yeah, I -- I can'T. I'm already pushing things.
Epiphany: 10th-floor nurses' station. One moment. It's a child.
Emily: Ok. Thank you.
Michael: Are you coming by dad's later?
Michael: Can you bring ice cream?
Emily: Is leticia with you?
Michael: She had to be with her family, but my dad's watching us now.
Emily: Ok, I'll be right there.
Georgie: That was so stupid.
Diego: Look, that girl was deliberately trying to hurt you.
Georgie: I just guess that I thought this would all be different, prom and all, but it's not. It's the same stupid cliques just standing around trying to impress each other.
Diego: We don't have to stay.
Georgie: If I leave, mindy gets the satisfaction. I don't think so. I'm going to dance.
Lucas: What is georgie thinking?
Guy: Looks pretty clear to me.
Lucas: Georgie swears they're just friends.
Guy: Well, we've both heard that before.
Lucas: I got to go break this up.
Guy: Why? Why, why, why? That guy's obviously crazy in love with her.
Singer: Sometimes I see
diego: You know, I love the fact that you don't run away from things.
Georgie: This is my prom, you're my date, and I'm going to make the most out of every minute.
Singer: And when I don't
diego: You're amazing.
Singer: Know how to I might think you're right there, baby ahold of me, yeah, yeah together
Lucky: This a private party, or can anyone join?
Maxie: Of course. Sit down. Are you ok?
Lucky: Yeah, just my back hurts. You going to tell me what happened?
Maxie: Oh, I just tried to do something incredibly stupid, and it blew up in my face, so naturally, I almost did something even more stupid, and -- do you ever see jesse?
Lucky: Not really.
Maxie: Tonight, there was this guy outside, and --
lucky: You thought it was jesse.
Maxie: I don't -- I mean, I knew he wasn't, but for a split second --
lucky: What are you doing out this late?
Maxie: There was an after-hours party at this club by pier 17. I don't know -- the guy that I saw -- he wanted to party, too, so I almost -- I almost took him with me. But I decided to come back here, instead.
Lucky: Jesse would be proud of you.
Maxie: Sometimes I hear his voice in my head asking me what the hell I think I'm doing. That's a good question.
Lucky: I try not to ask myself that question these days.
Maxie: I thought you were doing better.
Lucky: I'm ok.
Maxie: Jesse and I used to dance to this song.
Lucky: I'm not jesse. I'm just the one who got jesse killed.
Maxie: Lucky --
singer: It seems your soul
maxie: Why don't we try and forget about that for a little while? Just until the song ends. Dance with me?
Singer: I know you know
maxie: Just try to make everything else disappear.
Singer: Not to criticize and it's hard to believe what has happened to me but in moments like these I let go and let me believe
jason: Are you ok?
Elizabeth: Yeah. I will be. I just needed to cry for a couple of minutes. I'll be fine. Go do what you need to do.
Jason: Just came to look at the water. I don't have any place to go.
Elizabeth: Neither do I.
Alexis: Jason is doing what he believes is the right thing to do.
Sam: No -- jason -- he -- he's just worried. He gets like this. Go tell him to come back and tell him everything's going to be ok.
Alexis: He won't listen to me.
Sam: He loves me.
Alexis: There's no question about that.
Sam: And I love him, too. Jason is my life. He is my family. I am nothing without him! Do you understand that? I am nothing without him!
Alexis: That isn't true anymore. You have me --
sam: No --
alexis: If you want.
Sam: No --
alexis: And I will promise you this. It will all be ok, sam. You have to believe me. It will all be ok.
Alexis: It's ok. It's ok.
Emily: Max, where are the boys?
Max: In there with sonny.
Emily: How's he doing?
Max: Seems to be all right.
Emily: Ok, that's good. Um -- max, listen, about what happened earlier --
max: Look, there's no need to explain, all right? Look, I know the boss has a lot on his mind right now.
Michael: Dad, no!
Michael: Please stop. Dad, no!
Sonny: Hey, you better watch what you're doing, boy.
Michael: You're slaughtering me.
Sonny: You're just in time. Why n't you join us so you can try to help this little boy?
Michael: Please. Ugh. So mean.
Morgan: Look, I have to go back.
Patrick: Thanks. So, what kind of wine are we looking at? Something to celebrate being out of the jungle?
Robin: Hmm. You pick.
Patrick: Is there a good reason why you're not paying any attention to me right now?
Robin: There's some people here tonight that I would efer to avoid.
Nikolas: It's unlikely that helena will go after you. I just want you to be careful, that's all.
Lulu: Ok, I'm t going to be intimidated by your crazy grandmother, but thank you for the warning.
Nikolas: I will appreciate your courage. Helena will not, however.
Lulu: Ok, I'll keep my eyes open for her.
Nikolas: All right. You look wonderful, by the way.
Lulu: Oh, thanks. Um -- I helped dillon get to the prom. It's a long story.
Nikolas: And why aren't you going, again?
Lulu: Um -- let's just say elvis has left the building. Yeah, I don't have a date.
Nikolas: Well, that remains to be seen.
Jax: Hey, wow. Wonderful.
Carly: The boys are with sonny. So I'm all yours.
Jax: Really? All mine?
Robin: Oh, things were so much easier in the jungle.
Patrick: You can be a little more specific.
Robin: I found something out that I'm not supposed to know, and I would prefer not to deal with it tonight.
Patrick: Then don'T.
Patrick: I'm glad to see you.
Robin: I'm glad to see you, too.
Patrick: Did you miss me?
Robin: Desperately. Let's get out of here.
Patrick: My room's downstairs.
Robin: I know.
Nikolas: You won't be the first girl in history to go to the prom with her brother.
Carly: Perfect timing. Robin's leaving. You know, her lectures on truth and morality can sure put a mper on the evening.
Jax: All right, why -- why do you have to --
robin: You know what, carly? You pull the same hateful crap over and over again. I'm not going to let you get away with it.
>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "general hospital."
>> On the next "general hospital" --
maxie: Dancing really can make the world disappear.
Robin: You thought no one was going to call you on it, didn't you? Maybe it's time we all heard it.
Alexis: What are you doing?
Sam: I have to find jason.
Jason: I must keep her alive.
Elizabeth: By leaving her?
