Nikolas: I don't know -- I'm partial to this one. What do you think? Nice frame, place of honor over here on the mantle perhaps?

Alfred: I'm not sure, sir. I can't put my finger on it, but something is -- hmm -- missing, most definitely.

Nikolas: What do you mean? What's missing?

Emily: Nikolas? I got here as soon as I could. What -- what do you need?

Nikolas: Uh -- in general or -- or specifically?

Emily: No, did -- did you not leave me a message saying that you needed my help with something?

Nikolas: No. Oh. What a coincidence -- Alfred has put out tea for two.

Alfred: It never hurts to be prepared for the unexpected. Enjoy.

Nikolas: I'm sorry. I had no idea that Alfred had a second career as a matchmaker.

Emily: No, I'm -- I'm not offended.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Emily: Um -- in fact, a cup of tea sounds great.

Nikolas: Yeah, you sure? I mean, don't feel obligated to stay or anything, because --

Emily: No, I -- I'd really like to.

Jason: Whew.

Carly: Hey.

Jason: Can you remind me -- was there ever a time you actually knocked?

Carly: Well, I thought about it and I thought, "Well, that's a waste of time." Hey -- guess what this is.

Jason: Uh -- a dress?

Carly: Hmm, used to be 'til Sonny ripped it off Emily because he thought it belonged to Lily.

Jason: This --

Carly: Take a closer look. Does it look like something Emily would wear or Sonny would buy for her? No, on both counts. Ric bought it and I have proof.

Alexis: You were right.

Ric: Hmm?

Alexis: About the Escobar brothers -- they were incredibly sloppy. There's tons of stuff here to bust them for money laundering if they weren't conveniently dead.

Ric: Yes, and Jason inherited the whole package, road maps and all.

Alexis: I know, all right? And with everything that he's going through right now, I doubt that he had time to clean up the damn thing.

Ric: My sentiments exactly. So, are you going to bust him finally?

Alexis: No. You are.

Emily: Someone's cranky for his nap in this one.

Nikolas: Oh. John's usually quite patient, but when it comes to sleepy time, forget about it.

Emily: No, I mean you, but --

Nikolas: Ah, ah!

[Emily laughs]

Nikolas: That -- that's it. Alfred is banished from taking photos from now on.

Emily: Why?

Nikolas: He's a sly old dog, that Alfred. He likes to wait until I look my most hapless and then he freezes that moment for posterity, hoping that I'll come to my senses and realize that what we need around here is a --

Emily: Yeah.

Nikolas: A mother figure.

Emily: Well, you have Colleen.

Nikolas: Mother figure, not nanny. In the world according to Alfred, there's a distinct difference.

Emily: Yeah, he does seem rather, you know, correct.

Nikolas: Yes.

[Emily laughs]

Nikolas: Yes, he does, to say the least. I -- I must be his waking nightmare.

Emily: Why is that?

Nikolas: Hmm. Well, the -- you know, the fencing, the Latin, the classic education that my uncle put so much stock in?

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Nikolas: It doesn't -- it doesn't do a whole lot of good when you're trying to figure out what an infant needs.

Emily: Yeah.

Nikolas: I'm still clumsy as a father and that's -- that's being kind.

Emily: No, Nikolas, you're too hard on yourself. Hmm. The most important thing in any child's life is knowing that it's loved, and you've got that base covered in spades, you know? And -- and the rest you learn as you go and, you know, meanwhile you've got Colleen and -- and from what I can see, she's wonderful with John, nanny or not.

Nikolas: No, no, don't get me wrong. I'm grateful for Colleen, but Alfred's right. There's a difference between someone who's getting paid to take care of your child and someone who's doing it just because she loves him. And the whole -- the whole situation is just -- it's ironic to me. I mean, I'm in a position to give my son every opportunity, every material thing that he could ever want and need. And I'd trade it all in in a heartbeat, Emily -- in a heartbeat.

Alfred: Ahem. Sorry to interrupt. I've been asked to relay a message post haste.

Nikolas: Okay, what's going on?

Alfred: Dr. Scorpio says you're to pick her up at the hospital for your dinner tonight.

Nikolas: Okay. Thank you. Thanks.

[Emily chuckles]

Emily: Wow, it looks like Alfred's concern was premature -- and you're dating a doctor, no less?

Nikolas: No, no.

[Emily laughs]

Nikolas: Robin and I are friends, certainly not dating, and this -- this dinner, I don't know. It kind of comes out of nowhere.

Emily: Well, I think you two would be great together.

Nikolas: Oh. You're leaving?

Emily: Yeah, I've got to work today and you have to get ready for your "nondate."

[Emily laughs]

Nikolas: Thanks for having tea with me.

Emily: Oh, no, no, no. I'd love to come by anytime. Um -- do you -- do you mind if I take one of these?

Nikolas: Yeah, sure. Go ahead. Of course.

Emily: All right.

Nikolas: Thanks. I'll see you later.

Emily: Thanks. Okay.

Nikolas: It's really not a date.

Emily: Well, make it one. Nikolas, you never know where it could lead. Bye.

Robin: Good afternoon, Dr. Drake.

Patrick: We'll see. Can't possibly be as good as last night or even early this morning, Dr. Scorpio.

Elizabeth: Guess not because those arrived for Dr. Scorpio just a few minutes ago.

Robin: Flowers. Nice touch.

Patrick: They're not from me.

Robin: "Here's to old memories. Now let's start making new ones. Nikolas"? Excuse me. I have to call my mother.

Alan: Elizabeth, did you compile that list I asked you for?

Elizabeth: Oh, yes. Every doctor who has prescribed Hydrocodone in the last six months and the patients they gave it to.

Alan: I want to know who's been stealing these pills.

Elizabeth: Believe me, we all do.

Alan: Nobody understands the consequences of this particular addiction better than I do. If there's any chance of saving some poor soul from the hell that I walked through, I'm going to take it.

Maxie: Hey.

Lucky: Hey. Ahem. What are you doing here?

Maxie: Well, my excuse was to see my dad, but the real reason is you. How are you holding up?

Lucky: I'm fine.

Maxie: You don't have to lie to me.

Lucky: I know. I'm not.

Maxie: So you don't need anything?

Lucky: Do you mean like more pills?

Maxie: I mean anything. I'm just trying to be a good friend, Lucky. Look, I'm really sorry about our fight earlier. Just -- if you need anything call me, okay?

[Lucky coughs]

Det. Rodriguez: See what happens when you're the hero?

Lucky: What are you talking about?

Det. Rodriguez: Mac wants to see you in his office in a half an hour about progress on the Escobar case. That's what they mean by, "What have you done for me lately?"

Ric: From what I've seen in this file, there's more than enough to bring Rico violations.

Alexis: Against the Escobars, it's true. They've been laundering money with impunity.

Ric: Uh-huh.

Alexis: Do you know they did it with a sense of humor? It turns out that they own a chain of Laundromats.

Ric: Okay, that's -- that's cute. And Jason runs the whole operation. He owns the shop, so why don't you just go after him?

Alexis: I can't because there is no ironclad connection and you need that because the jury can't have any doubt at all.

Ric: Mm-hmm.

Alexis: I don't want to arrest Jason.

Ric: Oh, I got that.

Alexis: My daughter happens to be in love with him. I don't want to arrest him.

Ric: It's your job. Jason breaks the laws that you're paid to uphold.

Alexis: That's another thing. I blink, Durant's dead, and all of a sudden, I find myself thrust into this job without any warning, without any preparation. At the same time, I find out that this woman that I could barely tolerate six months ago is my daughter. That's about to change everything. I know that what Jason does is wrong, I know that when someone else does it they have to pay a price and so should he, but I want my daughter to like me and I want her to be happy, and she won't be either of those things if I arrest him.

Ric: Okay. It's natural that you would want to ensure your daughter's happiness, but I think in the long run you're going to be able to do that as long as Jason does some hard time. Look, once he's inaccessible, she's not going to have any choice but to get over him and move on, and that's what you want, right?

Alexis: To move on, yes, of course. I think that would be better for her, but I don't want to have to arrest Jason in order to accomplish that.

Ric: Okay, then don't get distracted. Just do your job.

Alexis: I -- Sonny and Jason are mending fences, right?

Ric: Yeah, it would appear so.

Alexis: So it would make sense that Sonny is being apprised of Jason's business dealings. You want law and order, go get it.

Ric: You're going to have to be more specific.

Alexis: The evidence may be in Sonny's house. You're the only one with access.

Ric: Oh, yeah, limited, and my brother's never been known for being sloppy or careless.

Alexis: He's just had a breakdown. I hardly believe he's on top of everything. Look, you're getting what you want. You're in a position to get the proof that you need to put Jason away -- unless, of course, you've changed your mind and that's not what you want.

Ric: No.

Alexis: And don't say that you're above using your brother to attain those goals.

Jason: Does Sonny know you have this?

Carly: Yeah, and so does Emily. The wide-eyed wonder refused to believe that Ric cod be so devious. And Sonny is so confused. He's suddenly able to give Ric all kinds of benefits of the doubt. But I know Ric and I know how dangerous he can be.

Jason: Okay, fine. Knowing him is one thing. You said something about proof.

Carly: This dress was made by Franco. I went down to his boutique. I waved all kinds of money in front of the salesgirl, and she was more than happy to tell me that Ric bought this dress the same day Sonny ripped it off Emily. She even I.D.'d his photo. How much you want to bet that Lily had a dress that looked just like this?

Jason: Ric did this on purpose to push Sonny over the edge.

Carly: Because he wanted to be the one to save him so Sonny would owe him.

Jason: I should've killed that bastard when I had the chance. That's okay. That's okay because there's now. I can do it now.

Carly: No. I cannot let you do that. 

Jason: I can understand Emily telling me not to kill Ric, but you?

Carly: Look, I'm not going soft on you. I just think death is too good for Ric. He won't suffer enough, and I don't want you going to prison. Look, I say we do this right. I say we do it better. Let's make his life a living hell, Jason.

Jason: There's a piece missing. Ric bought the dress; we know that. But how is he supposed to know that Sonny's going to think of Lily?

Carly: She's always on his mind. He's always fixated on Lily whenever he has a breakdown. And according to Max, he was calling Emily by Lily's name. Ric's at the house all the time, draped over Sonny like a cheap suit. Sonny was probably talking about Lily. And I know there's photo albums around the house of her. Come on, Jason, it is not a stretch to assume that Ric did his research. And whatever he found, he used it to drive Sonny crazy.

Jason: Yeah, you're -- no, you're right. Max told me that Ric was keeping booze around, which is wrong. And now he's running parts of Sonny's business. I mean, Ric could still get to him. You know he's going to play the brother card. He could derail Sonny from any progress he's making.

Carly: I'll just have to use a card of my own, then.

Nikolas: So, I -- I've got a board meeting, but as soon as it's over, I'd be happy to take you to dinner.

Robin: Dinner?

Nikolas: Yeah. Yeah, I got your message to pick you up here.

Robin: Oh, no -- I didn't leave you a message. Just like you didn't send me flowers today.

Nikolas: Okay, obviously, I've missed something here.

Robin: Yes. Well, you see, my mother has been visiting me in Port Charles which, of course, I love. I love spending time with her. But she's just overcompensating a bit for the years that we spent apart by meddling into my personal life.

Nikolas: Oh, I think the word you're looking for is hovering over you.

Robin: Yes, which is why I was relieved when she said that she had to go on an unexpected trip. I didn't want her to feel bad, so I've been talking to her on the phone. And she asked me how things were going with Patrick and I, and I made the mistake of telling her that I was seeing him again.

Nikolas: Hmm.

Robin: So, of course, she decided that the way to hold on to him was to make him jealous. I didn't argue, because I figured what's the point? She's on the other side of the world. Silly me. My mother is more than capable of defusing a bomb with her left hand, and then using her cell phone to meddle in my personal life with the other.

Nikolas: Yeah. Seems to be a lot of that going around these days. Well, still, we -- we can still have dinner, anyway, right? Yeah?

Robin: Yeah.

Nikolas: All right. I'll see you.

Patrick: Ahem.

Elizabeth: Wow, Robin's a lucky girl today.

Patrick: These aren't for Robin, they're for you.

Elizabeth: Huh. You never stop, do you?

Patrick: It's not in my nature.

Elizabeth: And what have I done to deserve such a beautiful bouquet?

Patrick: You didn't have to do anything. You just are -- beautiful, that is, and so are the flowers. And when I saw them, I thought, hey, perfect match. So take them home and invite me over so I can watch you both blossom in your natural habitat.

Lucky: Don't say no on my account. I'm working late anyway.

Lucky: Quite a bouquet.

Elizabeth: Patrick was just --

Patrick: Just showing my appreciation.

Elizabeth: Honey, what are you doing here?

Lucky: Well, I thought maybe we could grab a bite during your break, but I can see you're busy -- being appreciated.

Elizabeth: No, you don't understand -- Lucky -- please, just wait.

Patrick: Hey -- I'm sorry. I didn't mean to cause a problem.

Elizabeth: Now I have to go get him.

Robin: Are you happy now?

Patrick: Should I be?

Robin: You know, you should really stop hound-dogging Elizabeth. I don't think Lucky can handle it.

Patrick: Lucky's insecurities are not my problem.

Robin: You're making a problem for Elizabeth. You know, if your huge ego needs the constant attention of a woman, whatever. At least have the decency to hit on someone who's available.

Patrick: Well, I happen to like Elizabeth.

Robin: Oh, you are so transparent. This is about you making a huge statement that you don't want to be committed to anyone.

Patrick: Robin, not everything is about you.

Robin: Oh. We got a little close; you got a little scared. Are you just jealous because someone sent me flowers? Because if that's what it is, don't waste your time.

Patrick: I don't do jealous. You can accept flowers from whoever you want.

Robin: Thanks for the permission. Does that extend to dating, as well, because it just so happens that I have dinner plans with a prince.

Sonny: What?

Emily: Hey!

Sonny: Get over here. Give me a hug.

Emily: Hi.

Sonny: Get up, get up.

Emily: Hey.

Sonny: This kid.

Emily: Hey, buddy.

Sonny: I didn't know you guys were coming.

Carly: Well, we wanted to surprise you. We had an impulse, and the boys wanted to come make sure you were feeling okay.

Michael: Can we stay for a little while, please?

Sonny: Sure. Sure. I promised. I'm going to go -- I'm going to go there. Okay?

Emily: Okay.

Michael: You have to leave?

Emily: Yeah, I'm afraid so, but it was great to see you, even for a minute.

Michael: Yeah.

Sonny: Why don't you two gentlemen walk Emily to the door.

Michael: Stand up.

Emily: Okay.

Sonny: I know exactly what you're doing.

Carly: I just brought the boys over to remind you the most important reason you have to get well.

Alexis: Oh.

Sam: Hi.

Alexis: Hi. What have you got there?

Sam: Oh, just the latest from forensics on the Norris case.

Alexis: Oh, okay.

Alexis: I warned you that was bound to happen.

Sam: I know.

Alexis: Can you do me a favor? Mac needs these.

Sam: Okay.

Alexis: Thanks.

Alexis: It's okay. I can take it from here.

Jason: If this is about the Escobar murders again, I have nothing to say without my lawyer.

Alexis: I get it. You can contact whoever you want. I'm not asking you any questions.

Jason: Then why am I here?

Alexis: It's a formality -- why you're here -- but law enforcement is raiding your businesses and seizing your papers. Relax. It'll be over before you know it.

Patrick: Emily, perfect timing. I need some information.

Emily: Yeah. How can I help? Oh -- gorgeous flowers.

Patrick: Robin's, from Nikolas. What do you know about their relationship?

Emily: Uh -- you mean currently?

Patrick: Well, let's start with the history, and then we'll work forward from that.

Emily: Well, Nikolas and Robin are friends and they have been for a long time.

Patrick: Close?

Emily: I'd -- I'd say so. I mean, Robin wasn't a musketeer, but --

Patrick: Wait, wait, wait. You mean Mickey Mouse?

Emily: No. As in four -- it was me, Nikolas, Lucky, and Elizabeth. Yeah. Um -- how far-ranging do you want this history to be?

Patrick: Just Robin and Nikolas --

Emily: Okay.

Patrick: And I'm sorry I interrupted.

Emily: Anyway, Nikolas was shot once. He had a stroke and developed Aphasia, and he locked himself away at Wyndemere. He shut everyone out of his life except Robin, and because of her, Nikolas learned to speak again.

Patrick: So he's indebted to her?

Emily: More so than ever, especially since Robin told Nikolas that John is his son.

Patrick: Were they ever romantically involved?

Emily: You know, I'm not really sure. Um -- you know, neither one has admitted it, but, you know, they did spend a lot of time alone together in that house and --

Patrick: Right.

Emily: You know, Wyndemere isn't all doom and gloom. I mean, in some ways, it can be incredibly romantic. You know, the lake is right there, and the cliffs and the horses and, you know, warm summer nights, the scent of flowers just drifts through -- yeah -- um -- we all had crushes on Nikolas, you know? Robin might have, too.

Patrick: You and Nikolas were married at one time, but does it bother you that they're getting closer?

Emily: I don't think that they are. But if it bothers you as much as it seems, then maybe you should be having this conversation with Robin. I don't know. Bye.

Sonny: Okay, boys, you need to listen very carefully, okay, to what I have to say. What happened to me has nothing to do with you two. I have an illness I didn't even know that I had. I didn't even know that there was a name for it or that I could fix it.

Michael: Can't you take medicine?

Sonny: Well, now that we know what's going on -- um -- yeah, there's medication for it. I'm going to talk to a doctor. Dr. Winters -- you know, right?

Michael: Yeah.

Sonny: You know who she is, right?

Michael: Yeah, Mom's shrink.

Sonny: Yeah --

[Sonny laughs]

Sonny: Um -- she's going to help me through this like she helped your Mama.

Michael: How can me and Morgan help?

Sonny: Uh -- you know how you help?

Michael: No.

Sonny: Because every time that I think about you guys, every time that I -- I remember my boys, I remember how much you love me. You know what it is to be an inspiration to somebody? You two boys are an inspiration to me, and I thank God every day that you're in my life. Now, you come over here and give me a hug, okay?

Michael: I'm just glad you're getting better, Dad.

Sonny: Oh, yeah. Get over here. Give me a kiss on the cheek, all right, you know what? You have to thank -- you also have to thank your Mama. You know why? Because last time -- well, a lot of times, well -- I don't remember, but you weren't even around when I got sick the last time, and your Mama was, and she stood by me like she does, even when I tell her to get out.

Carly: You know what? It's time for us to go. You saw your father, he's -- he's doing better, so we need to get out of here. Come on.

Michael: We just got here.

Carly: Yeah, I know, but your Dad has a doctor's appointment, so we need to take off. See you later. Come on.

Alexis: Anything you want to get off your chest?

Jason: You're wasting everybody's time. Okay? You're not going to find anything. All my businesses are legit.

Alexis: Oh, they are not. I know you try to make it look like they are and you're very good at it. Too bad your associates aren't quite as talented. The Escobars -- sloppy. Money laundering all over the place. But I know you don't know anything about that because you didn't take over their enterprises when you murdered them.

Jason: I don't know what you're talking about.

Alexis: I know. I'm sure there's no link to you or the Escobars or their dirty money. I guess we'll just have to wait and find out.

Elizabeth: Sam, have you seen Lucky?

Sam: No. Sorry.

Elizabeth: I really need to find him. What's Jason doing here?

Sam: Well -- uh -- you know, it's not that unusual. Face it, he's a criminal. He gets arrested.

Elizabeth: Look, I know you're still upset over the whole breakup thing, but he really was doing what he thought would keep you safe. This isn't about his feelings for you; this is about his lifestyle.

Sam: I know, I know. Just don't -- please don't lecture me on Jason's lifestyle. You don't know anything about it because you chose not to live it. You ran instead, remember?

Elizabeth: Well, the world was very black and white to me back then.

Sam: Well, here's a news flash -- the world really hasn't changed that much in the past couple of years, and Jason hasn't changed at all, and he doesn't, not for anyone -- no matter how much your heart bleeds. But, you know, I've actually learned something. You can't toss people you love away like garbage. It may come back to haunt you.

Lainey: You're very punctual.

Sonny: That's a good thing, right?

Lainey: Absolutely. It shows that you're invested in your treatment.

Sonny: Maybe I just want to get it over with.

Lainey: That's common, as well. So is not showing up.

Sonny: Yeah, well -- um -- I thought about, you know -- I drove by the hospital, and I thought it would be nice just to take a drive in the countryside. Whew. But I promised that I'd show up and --

Lainey: Well, whatever got you in the door is a good thing. So let's begin. How have you been since the last time I saw you?

Sonny: Well, I'm a long way from being cured, if that's the right word. I feel like a wind blew in and stirred up a bunch of dust in my head, and I don't want to look at it. There's a lot up there. Huh. And -- uh -- I don't want to examine it too closely, especially the way I treated Carly.

Carly: Ooh, ooh, wait -- I got an emergency. I have such an emergency.

Patrick: Don't tell me it's the boys again?

Carly: No. No, no, no. The boys are with Leticia. The boys paid a visit to Sonny today, and he couldn't have been more wonderful and sweet and charming, and he couldn't have said enough wonderful things about me.

Patrick: I'm not sensing an emergency.

Carly: Me. I'm the emergency. It's me.

Patrick: Oh.

Carly: And me and my precarious state of mind, and my weakness. The boys bring out the best in Sonny, and -- and watching the three of them together, it was just -- it brought up a lot of feelings, and if I didn't get out of there, I was going to move us all back in. Women are suckers for men with their kids. But I can't go there. I can't. I can't. I need to get off the train before it leaves the station, and I need a distraction to do that.

Patrick: You using me again?

Carly: Yes. But I promise you'll enjoy it. Unless you're afraid to get Robin's panties in a bunch.

Patrick: Robin's panties are the furthest thing from my mind. Actually, your timing couldn't be better. How does Metro Court sound?

Carly: That's a start.

Det. Rodriguez: This is going to take some time -- we have nine more just like it.

Alexis: Do tell.

Det. Rodriguez: Oh, papers, records, discs, printouts from all of Morgan's businesses.

Alexis: You know what? Let's just speed this up. I found a way to do that -- you just take the numbers from his bank account from his legitimate operations and match them with the Escobar file -- I could've sworn that I left that right here.

Det. Rodriguez: You did. I saw you.

Alexis: I didn't give it to anyone.

[Door closes]

Milo: Mr. C had an appointment. He won't be back for an hour or so.

Ric: That's okay, Milo. I'll just wait inside. I have some papers that need Sonny's attention.

Jason: You looking for something, Ric?

Elizabeth: Hey. It's me again. Look, I know you're upset, but we really need to touch base on this. Call me back, please. I love you.

Emily: Hey. Is everything okay?

Elizabeth: You know what? I can't even remember the last time everything was okay.

Emily: What's going on?

Elizabeth: Oh, it's just Patrick being his usual flirty -- giving me flowers --

Emily: Patrick gave you flowers?

Elizabeth: To get a reaction out of Robin. And then Lucky walked up, and before I could explain, he got mad and he took off, and now I can't find him. And I've been calling him on his cell phone, but he won't answer -- at least, not when he sees I'm the caller.

Emily: I'm so sorry.

Elizabeth: I just thought we were past this whole Patrick thing, you know? I thought he understood that nothing was going on between the two of us. But this -- this attitude will not go away, and I'm just afraid he'll --

Emily: He'll what?

Elizabeth: I'm just afraid of what he might do, that's all.

Elizabeth's voice: Hey. It's me again. Look, I know you're upset, but we really need to touch base on this. Call me back, please. I love --

Maxie: Did you know that your wife is looking for you?

Lucky: You know, I don't really have time to deal with Elizabeth.

Maxie: There's a switch.

Lucky: Well, you know what? I'm finally figuring things out. You know what? No matter what I do, or how many times Elizabeth claims that she still loves me, she just can't stay away from Patrick. You know what? They've been hiding their relationship behind work. They use every excuse just to be together. Well, I'm done. I am done with Elizabeth! She can do whatever the hell she wants. It's about time that I start taking care of myself.

Maxie: Tell me what you need.

Sam: Hey. Hi. You wanted to see me?

Alexis: We have a serious problem.

Sam: What?

Alexis: A file that could be potentially dangerous for Jason has disappeared off my desk, and I believe that you took it. Your turn. Tell me that I'm wrong.

Nikolas: Thank you. Ahem. Any more calls from your mother?

Robin: Her mission must be taking priority, which means when she is finished, she's going to overcompensate that much more. Isn't it funny that when your parents aren't around, you would give anything to see them, and then when they are, you would give the same so that they would just focus on something else?

Nikolas: Well, I'm sure Anna's intentions are good.

Robin: Have you heard about the road to hell? All my mother's meddling has managed to do was send Patrick into competitive mode, which made me lose my temper, and then we went into our whole "I don't want a commitment" argument once again.

Nikolas: Right.

Robin: And then before you know it, he's buying Elizabeth flowers and I'm sailing out the door with you. I'm not complaining, of course. I've always liked you much better than him. I don't know, I just hate acting like a 5-year-old. I guess it's better than acting 3.

Carly: Well. I guess I'm not the only one using people for a distraction.

Patrick: Uh-huh.

Carly: If you suggested we come here to make Robin jealous, it's working. She's staring daggers at us.

Patrick: She'll get over it. We're playing by the rules. First and most important is no commitment for either one of us.

Carly: Rules are generally easier to set than follow. And for the record, even though making Robin miserable is so much fun, she's not my top priority. I need a distraction and you promised me a good time.

Patrick: Well, I aim to please.

Carly: So distract me. Stop me from thinking about Sonny.

Sonny: I have a temper. It's bad. Especially when somebody's betrayed me who I trusted. And a lot of my anger over the years has been directed at Carly -- um -- because she's a strong woman; she can stand up for herself. But she's all -- she can also be hurt, and nobody can hurt Carly more than I can.

Lainey: Obviously, you're carrying a lot of guilt over the way you've treated Carly, but there's usually a balance of some kind -- times when you were good to her.

Sonny: Ah. Yeah, yeah, there's times.

Lainey: Can you think of an example?

Sonny: There's -- uh -- one time I took Carly to my island. And I know this is going to sound arrogant as hell, but I -- I bet her that she couldn't resist me.

[Music plays]

Sonny: Dance with me.

Carly: To this crap?

Sonny: It's a classic.

Carly: Exactly.

Sonny: Dance with me.

Carly: Okay.

Sonny: Man, that's -- that's nice. I like that.

Carly: You don't mind, do you?

Sonny: No.

Carly: Hmm. Okay.

Sonny: Okay, the deal was that you would do whatever I wanted you to do, right?

Carly: Okay.

Sonny: All right.

Carly: But I don't have to like it.

Sonny: Oh, believe me, you're going to like it.

Carly: You know what? Wake me up when you're done.

[Carly sighs]

Sonny: You awake now?

Carly: Yes.

Sonny: I'm -- I'm finished. I got to go.

Carly: What?

Lainey: You loved her very much.

Sonny: Yeah. I didn't know how much I did at the time, but yeah, I did.

Lainey: What about now?

Ric: I was just looking for some bills. I've been handling Sonny's affairs; I thought you knew. Okay, fine, Jason. If you don't believe me, you can call Sonny yourself and ask him. My brother was very happy for me to take over his affairs when you betrayed him, and I've been very, very grateful for his trust.

Jason: You bought this for Emily.

Ric: What is it?

Jason: You know damn well what it is! You tricked Sonny into giving Emily a dress like Lily's, Ric. You messed with his head while he's going through a breakdown. You call that taking care of your brother.

Ric: What are you going to do?

Jason: We're going to wait. We're going to wait for Sonny to come home, and we're going to tell him exactly what you did to him.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Nikolas: Hey --

Sam: Why would you hire me if you didn't trust me?

Ric: This is about jealousy. You're determined to drive me out of Sonny's life.

Sonny: I've had many good times with Carly -- they never lasted.

Lainey: More than once?
