General Hospital Transcript Thursday 7/13/06
Proofread by Amelia
Dillon: Lulu, hey.
Dillon: Hey. You ready?
Lulu: Yeah. What time's the movie start?
Dillon: We've got, like, 20 minutes. It's at the Elm Street Theater, so --
Lulu: Is that one that's right next to the piercing shop?
Dillon: Yes. Why?
Lulu: Because a tongue ring and a spike right about there would give your mom almost as big a stroke as us sleeping together.
Dillon: You know, I'm not going to lie to you, that's about the only reason in the world I would agree to that much pain.
Georgie: Oh, my God -- no! No!
Diego: I don't want -- I don't want anyone to see that.
Georgie: Come on, Diego, you look really cute.
Diego: Give me the camera.
Carly: Looks like I walked in on boys' night out. The real question is, which one of you are man enough to take me on?
Emily: Hi. Where's Sonny?
Jason: He's upstairs.
Emily: How is he?
Jason: Much better.
Emily: I can see that.
Sonny: It's okay if you want to leave now.
Georgie: I just got this new camera and Diego and I were just -- what am I doing? I don't need to explain myself.
Dillon: No, you donít. You really donít. By the way, I'm sure your parole officer would be really excited to know you're back into photography.
Singer: I wish that I
Diego: Hey, you want to go somewhere else?
Lulu: Okay. Um -- whoa. You know, we should probably go if we want to catch the previews. Or not.
Dillon: Let me -- let me review here. Um -- she cheats on me with an ex-con who happened to kidnap her, and then she moves on with him like nothing ever happened. Love that.
Lulu: Oh, maybe --
Dillon: Love that.
Lulu: Okay, Georgie's probably just putting on a show. If I were her, I wouldn't want anyone to know how hurt I was.
Dillon: How hurt you -- Lulu, I think she gave up on me a long time ago when she started sleeping with him at the boathouse. I mean, if you hadn't have told me, it'd probably still be going on right now.
Lulu: Okay, yeah, what you need is to forget all about Georgie, and I think the mind-numbing pain of a needle going right through your tongue is going to do the trick.
Dillon: Um -- maybe another time?
Carly: See, I'm just trying to figure out what brought you guys here. Nikolas and Lucky are brothers, so that kind of makes sense. Patrick, you're not on the top of either of their lists. See, Lucky thinks you're banging his wife in between patients. And Nikolas -- well, I'm sure he's not too pleased the way you've been ruffling St. Robin's angel feathers. Now, Ric -- well, I guess you and Nikolas have Alexis in common. But, Max, I can't figure you out at all because you hate Ric, and I love you for that. So please tell me, what do the five of you guys have in common?
Lucky: You really want to know?
Carly: I already know. There's only one thing you guys talk about when you get together, especially if you're not getting any. So, any takers?
Coleman: Hey, darling. I'm game.
Carly: I don't think so.
Patrick: All right, let's do this. I'll even let you break the balls.
Lulu: Carly, it's Lulu. I am in a huge mess, and you are the only person who would know what to do.
Carly: I doubt that.
Lulu: Okay, fine. You obviously have better things to do.
Carly: No, wait --
Carly: Looks like it's your lucky night. I got to go. Try not to think about me while I'm gone.
Ric: You just got a stay of execution, my friend. My advice to you is to stay as far away from that man-eater as possible.
Carly: You ever done it on a bar, Max?
Max: This isn't happening. You're not real.
Carly: Open your eyes. Do I look real to you?
Max: Oh, yeah, yeah. Oh --
Carly: Touch me, Max.
Carly: You know you want to.
Max: No, I donít.
Carly: Come on, Max, please touch me.
Max: It's going to be like all the other times -- I'm going to go for you and you're going to disappear. I know it.
Carly: This is your fantasy. If you don't believe --
Max: Oh, man, I believe. I do believe.
Patrick: Whoa. You okay, big guy?
Max: No. Not even close.
Sonny: I'm glad you went to the island. It made me feel better to know that you were safe.
Emily: I got on the plane and came back the minute Jason said that you were better.
Sonny: I'm -- I'm well enough to know that you shouldn't be here.
Emily: You would never hurt me, Sonny.
Sonny: I know, but -- look, maybe that's true, but whatever's happening with me, it's scaring me, and you need to just -- you need to get on with --
Emily: I'm not giving up on you.
Sonny: You got to love me enough to let me go because Jason -- Jason was right. I could not live with myself if I ever hurt you.
Jason: I gave Sonny a choice -- the business or you -- and when he wouldn't choose, I made the decision for him. I'm sorry, it wasn't mine to make.
Emily: No, it wasnít. Jason, you had no right to try to keep Sonny and I apart, to take away his business, to force him to change his entire life, all in the name of protecting me. But none of that caused what's happening now. You have Bipolar Disorder --
Sonny: I'm not going to hide behind some fancy name in a medical book to excuse the way I treated you. I -- I yelled at you, I broke things. Jason said that, you know, this would happen, but, you know, so --
Jason: You tried -- you tried to protect her.
Emily: You would never hurt me, Sonny. My only regret is that I agreed to go to the island instead of staying here with you.
Sonny: You don't want me with Emily now any more than you did before.
Jason: It was never up to me.
Emily: I'm going to walk Jason out. You wait until now to say all of this? Now? After months of ultimatums and fights and constant pain, all of which could've been avoided? Okay, I'm going to stop before I say something that I might regret. But we are nowhere near being done with this.
Nikolas: How do you do it, Max?
Max: Uh -- what?
Nikolas: Keep your sanity while working for Sonny? Ric, he's unstable, come on. And Carly, she's -- I don't even know.
Lucky: She's every bit as lethal in her own way.
Patrick: I don't know why you guys are so down on the woman. She's gorgeous, impulsive. She definitely knows how to have a good time. If she wouldn't have gotten that call, I'd be having a better time than any of you.
Carly: You won again. Looks like I have to give you whatever you want.
Patrick: You know what I want.
Carly: Right here on the pool table?
Patrick: For starters, yeah.
Carly: You realize that having sex with me -- even here on the pool table -- is not going to make you forget about Robin?
Patrick: Hey, this is my fantasy. I can forget about whoever I want.
Carly: Sorry, doctor. I'm just here to please.
Max: You better not be thinking about who I think you're thinking about.
Patrick: Well, at least I didn't fall off my chair and spill my beer.
Lucky: You know what the great thing about a woman like Carly is? There's nothing to apologize for. There's no impossible standards to meet. Just action. Carly?
Carly: Lucky. Thank you for rescuing me. How can I ever repay you?
Lucky: Carly, you're my cousin.
Carly: Well, this is your fantasy. I wouldn't be here if your own wife let you rescue her. Close your eyes.
Singer: Don't just stare
Carly: Close your eyes.
Singer: Come close to me every time
Carly: Turn around.
Singer: You touch your skin to mine
Lucky: Why are you doing this?
Singer: I can't take it
Carly: You don't know what you want -- or who. Well, you could -- you could tell Elizabeth the truth, but then she may leave you. Or you can keep taking these, and she'd still leave you.
Lulu: Okay, remember the guy I was telling you about?
Carly: The guy that was into someone else?
Lulu: Right. Well -- um -- that "guy" is Dillon and that "someone else" is Georgie, and Diego and I sort of plotted to break them up so he could have Georgie and I could have Dillon.
Carly: Okay, been there, done that. It doesn't always work out so well. What happened?
Lulu: Well, Diego convinced Georgie to go skinny-dipping, and I lied and told Dillon that I saw them having sex, and when he went to the boathouse he found them half-dressed, soaking wet.
Carly: That's a good one. Let me guess -- Georgie denied it and Dillon believed you.
Lulu: He broke up with her on the spot, and he was devastated and needed some comfort.
Carly: And I bet you supplied the oldest in the book, huh?
Carly: Hmm. Okay. So, what's the problem? You won.
Lulu: No, not really. Dillon is still in love with Georgie. What is he going to do when he finds out the truth?
Carly: Okay, you do have a problem. Because if there's one thing I've learned about men, they have a major hang-up about being lied to.
Carly: Was Dillon your first?
Lulu: Uh -- wait, what does that have to do with anything?
Carly: I'm going to take that as a yes. Did you use a condom?
Lulu: I did not call you for safe-sex lectures.
Carly: Well, then what'd you call me for?
Lulu: Because you said anything that I've done, you've done worse, and you're right. You -- you lied about Michael's paternity, you drugged A.J. and put him in a laundry cart, you seduced your own mother's husband, and you shot him in court.
Carly: Okay, all right. Trust me, I will never judge you about anything you do, but I am going to give you a piece of advice. Lies, no matter how big or small, are always going to come back to bite you, even if you tell them for a good reason. Look what happened to me and Jax, okay?
Lulu: Okay, so you're saying I pretty much -- I've blown it with Dillon?
Carly: No, that's not what I -- okay, let's sit down. Some guys are worth it, okay? Do you love Dillon?
Lulu: All my life, I've been surrounded by well-meaning people who want me to be exactly like my mother, but Dillon is the only one who's gotten to know me for me. And he is interested in the things that I like and he listens to what I have to say, and he says that I'm pretty and I'm brave and strong, and sometimes I actually believe him. Dillon and I are really good together, and I want to be with him, or maybe I just don't want to lose how he makes me feel. I don't -- I don't know. It's -- forget it, I can't even explain it.
Carly: I can. It happened to me once.
Emily: We finally got my brother's blessing. Huh. I guess there's some consolation in that.
Sonny: This time was bad. It was worse, worse than it's ever been. It scared the hell out of Jason. That's why he backed off. It does not change anything. You do not deserve any of this.
Emily: Walking away is not a solution. You need help, all right, the right kind -- from a doctor.
Sonny: How can you be sure that I have this Bipolar thing? I mean, it's from my past. We talked about --
Emily: Now, why are you so determined to believe the worst instead of grabbing on to the possibility, no matter how small, that you could get treatment?
Sonny: Because if I have it, my kids could have it, too. And I could not live with myself if I passed it on to them, to know that one day they're going to wake up so lost, so confused, they're going to start destroying everything they love.
Emily: That's exactly why you have to get help now. If you're diagnosed and treated, then your kids can follow in your example, Sonny. I know that this breakdown has been terrible for you, but you can make it count for something.
Sam: Hey. I didn't think you would be released from the hospital so soon.
Jason: I checked myself out.
Sam: Jason, you were shot, you almost died, you lost a lot of blood, your arm is in a sling. Don't you think you should be in bed resting right now?
Jason: Sonny really needs my help right now.
Sam: That's it? No other explanation, huh? I don't -- I don't know, I guess I should be used to it by now. But you don't explain why. You just make decisions and take action. Well, you know what, Jason? I -- I get to make decisions, too. And I've decided to make a life without you.
Epiphany: Hey, I thought you left hours ago.
Elizabeth: Yeah, I left this in my locker. Are those for me?
Epiphany: Not unless you spent the last 18 hours pushing out a 10-pound baby boy. They're for Mrs. Valdez in room 412. Why? Were you expecting a delivery?
Elizabeth: I just thought they might be from Lucky. We got engaged a year ago today, and I was really hoping he'd remember and want to celebrate. But, you know, he's had so much on his mind lately, I just --
Epiphany: Most women are fortunate that their husbands remember where they live, let alone they agreed to snap that ball and chain to their leg.
Ric: You know, it's a good thing that you're Carly's cousin. That makes you immune to her.
Nikolas: The same rule should apply to you.
Ric: How do you figure?
Nikolas: Carly's your brother's ex-wife. Isn't that the line you don't cross?
Patrick: I don't know if I'd let that get in my way.
Max: Neither would he.
Patrick: All guys want what they can't have.
Lucky: They always will. Carly hates everything about you.
Ric: Yeah? She didn't always.
Carly: Looking for me?
Ric: This isn't a good idea.
Carly: Tell me about it -- the thought of being with you makes me sick.
Ric: Then why are you here?
Carly: Call it a preventative measure.
Carly: I'm going to stop you from thinking about the person you really want, make you forget all about Sam and how she looks standing in the moonlight, that soft dress clinging to her body.
Ric: Shut up.
Singer: It's almost over
Carly: Make me.
Singer: We're shutting down the power to lie
Coleman: How about a little help over there, Lansing?
Nikolas: You all right?
Ric: Yeah. You know what? You're the one who should be careful. Carly loves little John. She's about to force herself into your life.
Carly: When I first came to Port Charles, I fell so hard I didn't even know what hit me. I'd never been in love before, and Jason was everything to me you're saying Dillon is to you. He listened to me, he understood me, he didn't judge me. We were perfect for each other. The only problem was Jason was in love with someone else.
Lulu: So what did you do?
Carly: I lied, I cheated, I did whatever I could to keep him to myself -- just like you're doing. And right when I was about to have everything, it all blew up right in my face.
Lulu: Okay, well, that makes me feel a lot better.
Carly: Listen, my point is, even though I made really big messes, I never really lost Jason. He's still my best friend, and he's the only person I can count on.
Lulu: Do you think I'm going to lose Dillon?
Carly: I don't know. I don't know. You could tell Dillon the truth and he could run straight back to Georgie.
Lulu: Okay. Tell me that there is an upside to being honest.
Carly: You know, some people can keep a secret for the rest of their lives, but not everyone's wired that way. Hiding the truth can really affect most people. That's what happened to Jax -- he couldn't live with the lie, and I'm not so sure you can.
Lulu: Me, either.
Jason: You definitely deserve a better life than I can --
Sam: Jason, donít. Please donít. I am so sick of hearing how you want good things for me and that's why you broke up with me. I accepted your life and everything that came with it -- the danger, the uncertainty. I loved you that much. I fought for you. I fought for you with everything I had, and all I ever wanted in return was for you to do the same thing for me, but you didnít. And you won't, because it's easier for you to walk away.
Jason: Sam --
Sam: No, Jason, I get it, okay? I get it. This is what you want. I don't need to hear you say it again. But just please tell me one thing. Do you remember us and -- and what we had together? Do you -- do you remember any of that?
Jason: I remember every second I spent with you.
Sam: You've seen the kind of life that we could have together and you still choose to walk away. I just hope you can live with the choices you've made for the both of us.
Emily: What's the point of hurting the people you love to protect them?
Sonny: It's not that simple, Emily.
Emily: Hey, I never said it was going to be easy for anybody. But isn't what we have worth it? Aren't Morgan and Kristina worth it to you? You need help, Sonny. Go get treated. Start the medication so that we can share a life together. And one day, if your son or daughter show any symptoms, they'll have hope from the very start. They won't be forced to live in agony the same way you did. Show your kids that they can have a better life.
Sonny: What would I have to do?
Emily: You start by going to therapy.
Sonny: I can't sit in a room with a stranger talking about --
Emily: It doesn't have to be a stranger. You talk with Lainey.
Emily: Let her help you find a way to stay in control.
Sonny: I've spent my whole life hiding what -- what happened to me. I can't -- if I talk about it, I don't know what I'm going to do.
Emily: It's the way to start healing. Sonny, look at me. Instead of fighting fear, you need to face it.
Sonny: I'm not sure I can.
Emily: I am.
Nikolas: Carly has two sons of her own. She doesn't need mine to feel complete.
Ric: Come on, when have you ever known Carly to be a gracious loser? Robin publicly exposed the truth about John's paternity, which resulted in Jax's leaving town. Carly is alone, and she is desperate for a win.
Patrick: As long as you know her intentions, why not just sit back and enjoy the ride?
Carly: Mind if I sit?
Nikolas: I know what you're up to, Carly.
Carly: Do you?
Nikolas: Mm-hmm. You might as well drop the act now. It won't work -- at least not with me.
Carly: Okay. No more small talk. I'd rather focus on us.
Nikolas: There is no "us."
Singers: Keep on, keep on
Carly: Right, because you're hoping against hope that you can get Emily back. Yeah, daddy and lost love plus baby makes three. Now, that's a really nice package.
Singers: Don't stop dreaming
Carly: But you need to think about the benefits of being with me -- no regrets, no guilt. Just mind-blowing sex.
Nikolas: What gives you the impression that I even think of you in that way?
Carly: You're already thinking of me in that way. This is your fantasy. You might as well enjoy it while it lasts.
Max: You're all dogs. No shame, no class. Carly's a good woman, and you all are having impure thoughts about her. You should be ashamed of yourselves.
Patrick: Hey, I'm not married.
Lucky: Oh, God, I got to go.
Max: Fine. Dream about her all you want. Carly's too good for you, anyway.
Patrick: Couldn't agree more. Come on; let's get a cab.
Max: I'm okay. Milo's got the car outside waiting for me.
Ric: You know what? You're never going to have to worry about me cheating on Alexis with Carly. You're better off worrying about yourself.
Nikolas: Carly is not going to try to seduce me.
Nikolas: I took John away and broke up that happy little family she was trying to have with Jax.
Ric: Yeah, well, she'll get over it. Carly's a bad girl, remember? They're always in control, and they always get their man.
Dillon: Hey. I'm glad you called. Listen, it was so stupid of me earlier to bail on you like that. We had plans, and I just -- I shouldn't have --
Lulu: No, no, no, you don't need to apologize. It gave me some time to think. Um -- Dillon, you --
Lulu: You have been amazing to me this past year. You have been one of my best friends that I have ever had, ever, and you deserve to know the truth.
Dillon: About what? The truth about what?
Lulu: I never saw Diego and Georgie having sex. I only really saw them talking. They were just standing there. They never even kissed. I made it all up -- the story, the tears, everything. I made it up because I wanted you and Georgie to break up so I would have a chance with you.
Coleman: Too late. Your fan club already left.
Carly: I'm meeting someone.
Coleman: What, one of those spuds was smart enough to arrange to meet you back here, is that it?
Carly: Max Giambatti is a prince among men. Patrick is hot, and he may manage to escape Robin Scorpioís clutches. Lucky is my cousin, so I'm going to refrain from saying anything bad about him, but the fact that he's here downing beers instead of being at home with his wife and kid -- well, that speaks for itself. Ric is a freak, and he doesn't deserve to breathe God's air.
Carly: And Nikolas -- well, Nikolas is the father of a beautiful baby boy, and let's just hope he's worthy.
Coleman: Yeah, but none of them are worthy of you?
Carly: Not even close.
Coleman: You know, I'm -- I mean, I'm always available.
[Carly and Coleman laugh]
Carly: Yeah, and you have a certain sleazy kind of charm.
Coleman: All right.
Carly: I guess that's why Courtney always liked you despite all the horrible things you did to her.
Coleman: Oh, you know, it's true.
Carly: But I'm not like Courtney. I'm not as nice or forgiving.
Coleman: Ah. Well, you're right, I am a sinner. Huh. I mean, that's why I so appreciate your -- your many accomplishments.
Carly: You know, this year I made it my goal not to do anything stupid or self-destructive, so I'm just going to have to pass on your offer.
Coleman: Oh. Well, then you'll be drinking alone because it looks like you've -- you've been stood up. Huh.
Carly: He'll show.
Coleman: Well, you sound awful sure about that.
Carly: Just sure of him.
Carly: And here he is. Two El Rey Sols, please.
Carly: How you feeling?
Jason: What do you need?
Carly: Grouchy because your arm hurts?
Jason: No, Carly, I'm fine.
Carly: No, you're not fine, Jason.
Jason: Look, I do -- I told you I owe you for staying with Sonny, and I will do almost anything that you want to pay you back, but I can't sit around here waiting for you to work your way around to asking me whatever it is --
Carly: Maybe I just want to say thank you.
Lucky: Is Cam asleep?
Elizabeth: Yeah, I just put him down. Where have you been?
Lucky: I just grabbed a couple of beers with Nikolas after my shift. How was your day?
Elizabeth: Fine. Nothing special.
Lucky: Well, maybe it's time we change that.
Lucky: Happy anniversary.
Elizabeth: Lucky, it's not really our anniversary.
Lucky: Well, it's the day you agreed to marry me, to be my wife and spend the rest of our lives together. Don't tell me you forgot.
Elizabeth: No, of course not. If I'd known we were going to celebrate, I wouldn't have started laundry. I wouldn't look like this.
Lucky: You look beautiful, and I love you.
Elizabeth: Well, I love you more.
Lucky: And that's all that matters.
Lulu: I know that you must hate me right now, and that is okay. You should. I hate myself for doing this to you. It was selfish and it was stupid, and I told the worst kind of lie just to get what I wanted. And I know that it might be too late to say that I'm sorry, but I really am. I am so sorry. I did not mean to hurt you.
Dillon: Lulu -- Lulu? You're amazing. Do you know that?
Dillon: Do you know that I have never seen anything so selfless and so courageous out of somebody -- for you to try to take the fall for what Georgie and Diego did to spare my feelings? Are you kidding me?
Lulu: Dillon, you're not understanding me. Diego and Georgie did not sleep together. I lied to you.
Dillon: No, you're lying to me now. You didn't lie to me then. I know --
Lulu: No, I made it all up!
Dillon: Lulu --
Lulu: Dillon --
Dillon: I know what you're doing, okay? I know what you're doing, and you don't need to. You don't need to make up an excuse for Georgie so that I can hear something that I might -- that I might want to hear. Do I miss her? Yeah. Yeah. But it's not worth it loving somebody who doesn't love you. She chose Diego. She chose Diego over me, and I have you now to help me through this, so thank you.
Carly: You're lucky there's no one like you.
Jason: What are you talking about?
Carly: Well, you're lucky that you never have to look at someone and realize they're about to make all the same stupid, big mistakes that you made. And that's how I feel every single time I look at Lulu. She is mad as hell at her parents, and she has every right to be. She feels abandoned and she's ready to explode, and she doesn't have a best friend that's going to tell her to stop and count to 10 before she does anything stupid. Not that that always works, because I do that and I still go and do what I want.
Jason: Yeah. Usually people need more than 10 seconds.
Carly: Yeah, well, I'm not most people.
Jason: No kidding.
Carly: She has this boy that she likes, and she's lied to get him, and she's afraid that the truth is going to come out and she's going to lose him. But I didn't lose you, and you stood by me, so here comes the question -- have you ever asked yourself why?
Carly: Well, I am because I really need to know.
Jason: I guess because you would never go away. Really. I mean, when I got mad at you or you walked out on me, you would -- you know, you would always show up again. Most of the time you needed something. But sometimes I -- I really needed you. You know, all the other stuff -- the lies, the crazy plans, everything else -- that's just something I have to put up with. But when things are bad, Carly, the way you stand up, the way you don't quit on me or anyone else you love, that's -- that's what I get in return.
Carly: Do you ever regret helping me?
Jason: Oh, do you really want me to answer that?
Carly: No, you can't -- you can't be like that because I'm telling you how great you are and I'm thanking you.
Jason: Well, I -- I don't always agree with, you know, the things you do, and sometimes you're just wrong. But, no, I don't regret helping you.
Carly: You know, there's times that I look at you and I think that we should be together. Then I think, no, because I need this. I can't lose you. So I'm going to settle for just being your friend. I just hope Lulu can find someone who gives her half of what you've given me.
Jason: That's a poor guy.
Carly: You were lucky to have me.
Jason: I know.
Emily: You know, when I was down on the island, I must've called about six times a day to find out how you were and -- oh, Max and Jason kept telling me the same thing -- that you were doing better, but that I shouldn't come home yet -- and it made me wonder why I'm such a trigger for you.
Sonny: You did everything you could to help.
Emily: You can deny it, but there's something about me that makes you feel worse. I don't know, I'm -- maybe it's that you think I'm too young or -- or that you pushed me into this relationship, but you didn't, Sonny. If anything, it was the other way around.
Sonny: I don't regret a moment we spent together.
Emily: Then trust me. Therapy can help.
Sonny: What if I come out a completely different person? I don't know.
Emily: You might. I mean, who knows? You might realize that you don't love or -- or need me at all. And if that happens, I want you to be honest with me, okay? No lies, no guilt. If you go through therapy and you realize that I'm not the person that you're supposed to be with, I'll walk away without a fight. All right?
Sonny: You're so good to me. You make me want to be better -- for you. Come here.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Lucky: I'm kind of jumpy. I don't know why.
Elizabeth: Because you're getting a medal today?
Lucky: I wouldn't be asking if my back wasn't really killing me.
Sam: I have to go pick something up at Jasonís.
Ric: So the dress is for Jason?
Carly: Sonny's coming.
