Lucky: I'm no hero. I'm no super cop. I can't even manage a single shot across the roof.

Elizabeth: Okay, so maybe your bullet didn't hit Manny. But by you showing up, the sound of your shot -- it created a distraction so that Jason could throw Manny off --

Lucky: They don't hand out medals for that.

Elizabeth: I'm sorry. You're still my hero. Isn't that enough?

Lucky: I guess it'll have to be.

Elizabeth: Baby, come here. I'm sorry. What's this? Are you still taking these?

Lucky: You know what? I can't believe you're doing this.

Elizabeth: Me?

Lucky: You set me up! Pretending to be all loving and sympathetic when all you really wanted to do was bust me.

Sam: Look, if it's all the same to you, I would rather skip the part where you tell me how we can't be together, again.

Jason: Maybe it seems to you like I arbitrarily decided to blow us apart, and I'm walking around with no regrets.

Sam: What?

Jason: It's not true. I regret a lot.

Sam: Are you trying to tell me something?

Jason: I'm just -- I'm just saying be as mad as you need to be. Just don't think I ever stopped loving you because I didn't. And I -- I never will.

Sonny: One of two things is going to happen with these pills. They're going to turn me into somebody I don't want to be or, you know, the dosage is probably not right, so --

Carly: Or the dosage could be exactly right and you could still be the same arrogant jerk you always have been. You just won't have your breakdowns.

Sonny: Yeah, you know, any pills that can stop me from getting angry will stop me from thinking clearly.

Carly: Try if you must. But I will not let you talk yourself out of this.

Sonny: I believe you.

Sonny: You don't have to go anywhere.

Elizabeth: How dare you accuse me. I put my arms around you to love and comfort you and I felt the bottle in your back pocket. I didn't do anything wrong.

Lucky: All right, here we go -- Little Miss Perfect.

Elizabeth: I watched you throw the last prescription into the harbor. What, did you jump in after them?

Lucky: Oh, would you get real?

Elizabeth: Have you been taking these pills the entire time?

Lucky: You know what? You stop interrogating me. I'm the cop, remember? At least for now I am.

Elizabeth: Where did you get these? Did you go see another doctor? What, are you buying them off the street? Oh, God. Please do not tell me you were stealing Hydrocodone from the hospital.

Lucky: Why should I explain anything to you and expect you to take my word? You're only my wife.

[Door slams]

Skye: So what's the plan?

Robert: Well, after you've finished your checkup with Dr. Lee, you'll leave via the rear, get in an ambulance, go to the tarmac, be taken off, and then flown to your new home.

Skye: Which would be where? Paris? Rome?

Robert: Randall's Butt -- Butte, Iowa.

Skye: Iowa?

Robert: Mm-hmm, beautiful part of the world.

Skye: Uh, I might not be a geography whiz, but isn't that a bit -- rural?

Robert: Pretty much.

Skye: Yeah, well, I don't really do rural.

Robert: Something I'm sure Alcazar is well aware of. Now, that's the simplicity of this plan -- he ain't never going to look for you there.

Skye: Well, since you put it that way, I guess it's Iowa, here I come, but I'm telling you it's only going to be a matter of time before I get restless, Robert.

Robert: Look, when you've had the child and everything settles down, call me. I'll send you anywhere your heart desires.

Skye: The problem is my heart desires to be here. It wasn't easy but I -- I actually made a home for myself at the Quartermaines', you know? I love them and in their own weird way, they love me.

Robert: Me thinks that it's more than just the Quartermaines you're afraid of leaving.

Skye: Well, yeah, it's true. I have mixed feelings about Lorenzo, but this is really --

Robert: Oh, I'm not talking about him. I'm talking about my missing-in-action good buddy, Luke.

Skye: Oh. Please, Luke and I haven't been an option for -- what am I saying? Luke and I were never an option.

Robert: Well, if he asks me --

Skye: He won't.

Robert: But if he does --

Skye: Tell him.

Robert: Okay.

Skye: Robert, you have been so helpful to me, I can't tell you. I'm so indebted to you. Thank you.

Sam: One of the hardest things about not being with you anymore is not being able to talk to you. You know, I don't even know what you're thinking or feeling. Most of the time, I don't even know what I'm thinking or feeling. I mean, working it through was how I used to figure things out. I miss us.

Jason: So do I.

Sam: This isn't all your fault. I shouldn't have started firing off ultimatums at you. I think that goes to show you what a hard time I've been having because I definitely know better than that. Making demands has the opposite effect on you. It makes you dig your heels in and retreat even further. You know, I made another mistake. Today Carly came into the hospital and instead of just taking a deep breath and actually listening to what she had to say, I blew up at you and I assumed. I mean, I -- I assumed you were choosing her over us.

Jason: It definitely wasn't like that.

Sam: I know that now. I mean, in light of everything that's happened, I -- I know that Carly came to you because Sonny was getting worse.

Carly: There you go.

Sonny: Oh, okay.

Carly: You look tired.

Sonny: Oh, it's been a long day.

Carly: You're doing great.

Sonny: You realize that if you didn't come here tonight to -- making me see things clearly, I had already convinced myself to stop therapy, meds, the whole thing. I was going to take my chances.

Carly: Can't do that.

Sonny: No?

Carly: You need to see this thing through. You do -- you need to do it for yourself and you need to do it for your kids. And Lainey's great, Sonny. She's insightful and she knows when to push, but she knows when to let you do it on your own, and she's committed to your recovery.

Sonny: Listen to you. When -- when did you become such an expert on therapy?

Carly: Since I had an unexpected crash course. Do you remember?

Sonny: Yeah, but I'm trying to figure out how'd you -- how'd you know to come here, anyway?

Carly: I just have these amazing psychic abilities.

[Sonny chuckles]

Sonny: Okay.

Carly: Come on. Who knows you better than I do? I had a hunch and I followed it. No big deal.

Sonny: Carly, Carly, you know who you're talking to, right?

Carly: Sonny --

Sonny: Right.

Carly: We go way back, okay? We could practically read each other's minds.

Sonny: Yeah, well, don't try to snow me here because that would make me very, very unhappy.

Carly: All right. Lainey was worried about you, so she called me.

Sonny: Lainey talked to you about my therapy? What did she say?

Skye: Lorenzo, what are you doing here? What is it going to take for you to respect my wishes?

Lorenzo: You really want to have this argument again?

Skye: No, I don't, and we wouldn't have to if you weren't here every time I turned around.

Lorenzo: Okay. I respect your concern for our baby's safety, but giving up my child is not an option, Skye, and no one -- Robert Scorpio included -- is going to hide the two of you away from me for very long.

Skye: What's that supposed to mean?

Lorenzo: Oh. You used to give me a lot more credit. I am supposed to accept at face value that suddenly you're joined at the hip to an allegedly retired government agent?

Skye: Robert and I happen to live in the same house. I'm uncomfortable driving, and he has kindly offered to squire me around.

Robert: Just part of the service.

Lorenzo: You are lying through your teeth, Skye. Somewhere you got it in your head that Mr. Scorpio is going to be able to spirit you away to a place that I won't find you. That place doesn't exist. And no matter where you land, whatever secluded beach, whatever mountaintop, I will track you there with my very last breath --

Robert: All right, I've heard enough of this. Now, this lady is pregnant -- with your child, no less. She doesn't need any more stress. Now, I'm going to ask you as a gentleman to back off.

Carly: Okay. Just relax, all right? Lainey didn't share any gory details. She said you were having a rough time in therapy. It doesn't come as a surprise -- you're digging up some tough stuff, Sonny.

Sonny: And part of that was about you. I didn't treat you well at times.

Carly: Hey --

Sonny: What? What --

Carly: It was mutual, okay?

Sonny: Not really. Couples have a -- they have a -- an edit button that they push before they say truthful things or they, you know, get mad, walk out, you know, or -- or turn it into angry sex.

Carly: Wait a minute. You're not telling me that you shared that with Lainey, are you?

Sonny: That's the whole -- yeah, well, that's the whole point. You know, you keep digging, you stay open --

Carly: How much did you tell her?

Sonny: It doesn't really matter. I mean --

Carly: Yes, it does!

Sonny: No, it doesn't. I --

Carly: How much did you tell her?

Sonny: I told her enough. I mean, I'm sure you and Lainey have sat in the -- that office and talked about us, right?

Carly: We talked about the stuff that was going on at the time. I approached it in a very general way -- you know, a big overview.

Sonny: Well, maybe you should go back for a couple of sessions.

Carly: Oh, my God. Okay, so tell me -- how mortified am I supposed to be when I see Lainey? How much did you tell her?

Sonny: Ah -- I told her, like, we fight and then it turns into other things.

Carly: That we're screaming and yelling at each other one minute and then ripping our clothes off the next?

Sonny: Yeah, and it was spectacular, the sex, and -- no, I mean --

Carly: Oh, that's great.

Sonny: I mean, most of the time, it was.

Carly: That's great.

Sonny: And then, Lainey -- Lainey knows pretty much all of it.

Carly: That's great, Sonny.

Sonny: What are you supposed to do when you're in an office with a therapist? You got to tell the truth, right?

Carly: Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor.

Sonny: What the hell does that mean?

Carly: Lainey must think I'm a masochist. I married you three times.

Sonny: Maybe you are.

Carly: Okay, did you at least balance it out with something nice?

Sonny: "Nice"?

Carly: Did you tell her about the times we were wonderful with each other?

Sonny: Name -- name one time when I was wonderful to you.

Jason: I mean, I knew something was wrong with Sonny but I didn't -- I didn't feel right about stepping in. Sonny breaking down was the reason I didn't want Emily with him in the first place, and then to, you know, step in and help seemed very hypocritical. And I was really afraid that he wouldn't trust me the way he did before and, you know, it really could've messed things up and then Manny grabbed you. And my whole focus shifted to getting you back. You know, and Sonny was well into his breakdown, he needed help, so that's why I went to Carly.

Sam: Sonny needed you and you chose to look for me.

Jason: It wasn't a choice. It was necessary, like breathing.

Sam: There's always a choice. Jason, you could've given this to the police. You could've thrown it in my mother's lap. Sonny is your oldest, dearest friend. He was coming apart at the seams.

Jason: You needed me more.

Sam: That hasn't changed, you know. I have...

Elizabeth: Hey.

Patrick: Hey.

Elizabeth: Thanks for meeting me here.

Patrick: Of course.

Elizabeth: I know you're dealing with a lot right now, so if you're just here to be polite, you're totally off the hook.

Patrick: The fact that I'm at risk for contracting HIV's exactly why I could use a distraction. I'm assuming this is about Lucky.

Elizabeth: Do you remember when you implied once that Lucky might have a drug problem? I think you might have been right.

Patrick: What happened?

Elizabeth: I found a bottle of pills in his pocket. It was by complete accident. I wasn't even looking for them. I -- I hadn't even suspected anything.

Patrick: Didn't you say that Lucky threw away the rest of his pills?

Elizabeth: Yes, he did, weeks ago into the harbor as a grand symbolic gesture, but, obviously, he had another source. I'm afraid that Lucky might be the person who's stealing the meds.

Lucky: You know what? Nothing Elizabeth does surprises me anymore, but I thought you were above this high school garbage!

Emily: What are you talking about?

Lucky: Don't cover for her! I know Elizabeth sent you down here to spy on me!

Emily: I just came here from Wyndemere. I had no idea that you were going to be here. What in the world is wrong with you?

Lucky: I needed Elizabeth. I confided in her for the first time and about something very important, and was she there for me? Hell, no. Elizabeth just jumped all over me. You know what? Sometimes I don't even know why I married her.

Emily: Hey, look, I don't know what's going on between you and Elizabeth, but when someone you love is in trouble, when you're upset and emotional, things don't always come out the way you intend. Instead of indulging your feelings and letting them morph into anger, maybe you should think about where Elizabeth is coming from and why. Because I promise you, Lucky, whatever she said, however it sounded in the moment, came from a place of love. You say that you needed Elizabeth? Then don't be a fool and push her away.

Robert: Look, it's clear you have good intentions towards the child and you want to be a good dad. But you should've thought about that before you resumed your wicked, wicked ways.

Skye: My feelings about your business have never been anything I've ever tried to hide. Your world is too dangerous for a child.

Robert: I can attest to the fact because I've been in a similar situation, but if you don't put the child first, you live to regret it.

Lorenzo: I don't recall asking for your advice.

Robert: Ah, yeah, but I -- I know you'd do the same for me. Look, Skye here's got the interest of the child -- it's safe and its well-being -- first. You should do well to take a leaf from that book instead of acting like a petulant child that's about to lose its favorite toy.

Lorenzo: You speak as if you know something about me. You know nothing. I have a son. I wasn't there when he was born. I didn't raise him. I barely know him. Now, I'm not going to let that happen again. I will do whatever I have to, pay whatever it takes. And, Skye, it will be with my deepest regret, but I will go to the ends of the earth to be with this child.

Robert: We've had enough intimidation for one day. You've got an appointment.

Lorenzo: Well, then you won't mind if I tag along.

Carly: One of the many times you were wonderful to me, the best you've ever been, was when I went through my breakdown.

Sonny: Well, it's the least I can do. I mean, I pretty much caused it.

Carly: Are we back to that again? You didn't cause my breakdown, Sonny. Talk to Lainey. I made choices, I made a long series of choices. And it backed me into an emotional corner. I used up my reserve and I cracked.

Sonny: Are you ever afraid it's going to happen again?

Carly: I'm terrified it's going to happen again. That's why I am trying so hard to live in a very self-conscious way. I'm trying to recognize my flash points, see everything coming so it doesn't blow up in front of my face. I'm trying to avoid disaster at all costs. That's what I'm trying to do.

Sonny: You're doing good. No, I'm serious. I mean, Jax left. You didn't spin out and do something stupid, unless I missed it.

Carly: I got by with a little help from a friend. You know, I -- I recognized the pattern, I tried to avoid it. I hope I did.

Sonny: That's kind of cryptic.

Carly: That's all you're getting.

Sonny: You know, we -- we've seen each other through a lot.

Carly: It wasn't all bad. Do you remember when we lost our baby?

Sonny: Yeah, that's a laugh riot.

Carly: It was you at your best.

[Music plays]

Carly: Yeah, you were dealing with your own pain. But you took care of me instead. You took me to the island -- do you remember that? It's so quiet here. The stars are so close.

Sonny: No light pollution.

Carly: That means street lights, right? Traffic, television, all the stuff we do to fill up the dark so we can push the stars away.

Sonny: When I first moved here, I -- I couldn't stand it because it was so quiet that I spent time in the casino just, you know, so I'd -- I'd get myself so tired that I would sleep. And then I would and I -- I hated to dream. So I switched to fishing.

Carly: I cannot see you fishing.

Sonny: No, I was good at it -- kind of, you know? The boats would go out. I'd go with the crew. Have you ever pulled a net out of the water? Your back strains, you get -- you know, your hands get shredded, but I'll tell you what. It's -- it gets you real, real tired. And the best part is -- the stars and the water and, you know, how they're connected. So I started -- I started swimming at night. I'd go all the way out there, as far as I could, you know? And my arms would get -- would get tired and I'd have to swim back. And then to rest, I'd put my head up, lay back on the water, look at the stars. And I'd finally get to shore and I'd sleep without any dreams.

Carly: Is that why you brought me here? So I'd stop dreaming about our baby?

Sonny: Yeah, that's why.

Carly: Oh. How'd you get so wise?

Sonny: The only thing I know about loss is how much I hate it. You can't fight it. It doesn't do any good to be angry, it doesn't do any good to hurt yourself. All you're going to do is what the people you love would want you to do. Let's say if our baby had been born, if he'd been, he'd about what -- 6 years old? 20 years old when he died? What do you think he would've wanted for you?

Carly: For me to be happy; for me to love his brother; to help his daddy.

Sonny: We owe him that, right, to help each other?

[Carly sighs]

Carly: Do you think there's a heaven?

Sonny: Well, it's hard to look at the stars and just -- and think this is just a coincidence, you know?

Carly: And our baby's up there, right? He's happy? He's --

Sonny: God isn't cruel. You said that to me once. And you were right.

Singer: Looking for something more

Carly: Do you think our son sees us helping each other? Do you think he knows that he gave that to us?

Sonny: He knows.

Carly: That's when I knew I loved you.

[Music ends]

Jason: I mean, now you're going for your G.E.D. You have a job, you -- you know what? You got your mother, you got two little sisters who love you, you've got a nice house on the lake that isn't under constant guard, no bulletproof glass. I mean, you occupy your own space instead of constantly trying to fit in around me and my work.

Sam: I have never had a problem with your work.

Jason: I -- I know. I do -- in how it affects you, in how it makes you a target. I hated asking you to leave when business came up or leaving at a moment's notice to trash whatever plans you made for us. And then when you got shot -- I mean, at least now, you can have a normal life.

Sam: Jason, I have never -- I have never had a normal life. I was a grifter and a salvager. Being with you was the same as being guided by chance or the elements. I have more than proved to you that I can handle your life. Why -- why are you suddenly doubting me?

Jason: Things are just different now that I'm in charge.

Sam: Forever?

Jason: No. No, I -- at least, I don't -- I don't know.

Sam: No --

Jason: I don't think so.

Sam: No, so -- so you are going to go back to the way things used to be. Why can't we do the same thing?

Jason: It's just -- it's just not that simple.

Sam: It could be.

Jason: All right. So good luck with your test.

Sam: That's it? You're just going to walk away?

[Phone rings]

Sam: Hello?

Ric: Hi, Sam, it's me. I'm at the hospital with Kristina. It's nothing serious, but I can't get a hold of Alexis. She's in yet another meeting, and Kristina is asking for you.

Sam: Okay, I'll be right there.

Carly: Well, we both know it's hard to figure out the difference between love and dependency. And somewhere I crossed the line and I started living my life for you.

Sonny: The thing is, sometimes the line gets blurred once you're in the thick of it with someone. And you -- it's easier to see it when you're on the outside looking in. People can tell you what they want to tell you. It's -- you're asking for trouble. But you start justifying it, and you -- the dysfunction starts to feel like home. And you don't want to be alone. At least, I don't, because as you know, being alone is one of my greatest fears. I'm just curious -- do you think -- I don't know -- I mean, it's like -- you think that's why I connected with -- with Emily? I mean, nobody was around. She was here, and it was -- it was easy?

Carly: Only you can answer that.

Sonny: I know, I know. You were against it from -- from the start. Were you a little jealous maybe or were you convinced that I was going to have a breakdown?

Carly: It was both. I wasn't at the place where I believed that we were over. But I was afraid that you were going to slide back into darkness, and I knew that Emily couldn't handle that. But since we're putting the cards on the table -- you knew it, too. Didn't you?

Elizabeth: Lucky came home early. He had some problems at work. And I went to comfort him, and I put my arms around him. And that's when I found the bottle in his back pocket. And I asked him if he had continued to take these pills, and he completely freaked out on me -- and then accused me of setting him up. I tried to reason with him, but he didn't want to hear it. He just slammed out. I have never seen Lucky get so mad so fast. And it was extremely manipulative. I mean, he used his anger to put me on the defensive and to distract me, so that I couldn't get any more answers.

Patrick: That would be consistent with someone who's developing a dependency. Want my advice?

Elizabeth: Yes, please.

Patrick: You're Lucky's wife. Talk to him. Listen to him with the ears of a woman who knows and loves him more than anybody in the world. You'll get a lot of double talk, a lot of false promises, but don't buy into it. Lucky's going to need to go to rehab. You got to try and get him there. But there's only so much you can do.

Elizabeth: Oh --

Patrick: Lucky has to want to get clean. Another thing -- make sure you have a support system. If that means getting into a group, then do it. You're going to need all the help you can get.

Elizabeth: I feel so guilty. Like somehow, this is my fault.

Patrick: Elizabeth, listen. You're falling into the biggest trap. You are not responsible for this. Lucky makes his own choices.

Elizabeth: Thanks for hearing me out.

Patrick: Well, I hope it helped. You know, you can come to me anytime.

Elizabeth: I might make you sorry you said that.

Patrick: Not a chance.

Robert: The nurse said it was okay. Everything check out?

Skye: Oh, the baby's perfect. Me, on the other hand -- not so good.

Robert: What's up?

Skye: Did you hear Lorenzo? He meant every word.

Robert: Look, you got other things to worry about. Leave him to me.

Skye: Oh, really? Well, you're not the one he's going to be stalking, okay? If our plan had a ghost of a chance of working -- which it doesn't.

Robert: Where's the faith?

Skye: Sobered by reality. Lorenzo is on to us, and he's right outside that door.

Robert: Hmm. Lorenzo's right where I want him to be.

Lorenzo: You didn't honestly believe that this was going to work, did you?

Woman: I beg your pardon?

Lorenzo: Damn it.

Lucky: Did you get them?

Maxie: They're right -- here. Why are you so edgy?

Lucky: The oldest cliché in the book -- my wife doesn't understand me.

Maxie: Oh. What happened?

Lucky: We had a fight. About what, doesn't matter. Elizabeth just made it clear where she stands. You know what? She doesn't understand me, and I'm past caring.

Sam: Hey.

Ric: Hey, look. Your big sister's here.

Sam: What's wrong?

Ric: Oh, well, Kristina scraped herself on a rusty nail. She needs a tetanus booster.

Kristina: I don't want a shot.

Sam: Oh -- you know what, honey? Shots and -- and stitches -- they're not all that bad. And I know this hospital really well. If you do really good, you can pick out your own band-aid, and they got really cool ones. There are rainbows or you can have one with a kitty on it.

Kristina: A kitty!

Sam: A kitty. And if you're really good, maybe we can go out for some ice cream.

Kristina: Double scoop?

Sam: Double scoop. Anything for the bravest girl in the whole wide world.

Kristina: I'm glad you're here, Sam.

Sam: Come here, give me a hug.

Jason: Hey.

Carly: Hey. Thank you for meeting me.

Jason: Is it Sonny?

Carly: I'm worried about him, Jason.

Jason: Okay. Why?

Carly: Therapy is hard on him. He's all over the place. He went off on Emily earlier. I mean, she gave as good as she got, but they were arguing pretty bad.

Jason: About what?

Carly: Whether or not he's going to continue therapy. Lainey prescribed a higher dosage of medication. Sonny's not sure if he wants to take it. He doesn't want it to erase who he is, make him not feel anything. He just doesn't want that.

Jason: No one wants that. I've been pushing him to stay in therapy and take the meds. I feel like I owe it to him for letting him suffer all that time just to try to figure out what was wrong with him.

Carly: It's not your fault!

Jason: Look, I'm just -- I understand that. I'm asking him to do something I could not do. I couldn't take the pills, and I couldn't let a doctor tell me how to live my life.

Carly: You're not sick. Sonny is. There's a big difference.

Jason: So, he's sick. Does that mean he has to give up who he is?

Carly: I don't know. I mean, that's the question. I mean, is the thing that makes Sonny Sonny what he has to lose to get better?

Emily: Hey.

Sonny: Hi. I took the meds.

Emily: Good.

Sonny: I'm sorry for yelling at you.

Emily: I'm sorry I pushed.

Sonny: I know. Um -- you were just trying to take care of me. But -- but it -- it's not your job. 

Robert: Hey, there you are. Take a look at these. Man, this stuff is state of the art. Photos of a child in the womb. You know, back when I was a father-to-be, this stuff was never anything like --

Lorenzo: What have you done with Skye?

Robert: You'll find Skye and the baby only if she wants you to.

Lucky: I went to the hospital to apologize. And before I even stepped off the elevator, I found Elizabeth wrapped up in Patrick's arms.

Maxie: You're kidding. In -- in the middle of the lounge?

Lucky: For the entire world to see.

Maxie: I'm really sorry, Lucky. Not because you're finally seeing Elizabeth for who she really is, but because it's hurting you so much.

Lucky: I'll get through it. You'll help me, right?

Maxie: You have to ask? You have to know how much you mean to me.

Ric: Thanks for getting here so quickly. I wouldn't have bothered you, but Alexis was in yet another meeting, and she was --

Sam: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Look, no worries. She's my little sister. Whenever she needs me, I'm there, okay?

Ric: Yeah, you know -- you know how kids are. They want their mothers.

Sam: What's wrong?

Ric: Nothing new. Nothing new. It's just, this is frustrating. Alexis is trying to be all things to all people. She's trying to be D.A. extraordinaire. She's trying to be super mom. And then something always falls through the cracks. I'm just glad that you were here to pick up the slack. I hope I didn't pull you away from anything too important.

Sam: No, no. Actually, it was perfect timing. I had just been released from the courthouse elevator.

Ric: Huh. Let me guess -- it jammed?

Sam: Yeah -- like an hour and a half.

Ric: Well, I hope you weren't trapped in there with a perp or some other lower denizen of our society.

Sam: Nope, I was alone.

Jason: Okay, Carly, whatever advice we give Sonny, he's going to take very seriously, so we need to be really careful.

Carly: Okay.

Jason: Okay? Do you think he should stop taking the meds?

Carly: No. No way. No, his breakdowns will get worse. That's the pattern.

Jason: Yeah.

Carly: The breakdowns get worse, Jason.

Jason: Then what we need to do , we just need to tell him that Lainey is going to adjust the dosage until she gets it right.

Carly: Okay, well, that's the theory, but it's the right theory for Sonny. I mean, think about this man. Where does his drive and his ambition come from?

Jason: What -- what are you -- what are you saying?

Carly: It's the rage in him. What if that gets wiped out? Who are we left with? What are the consequences, Jason? I mean, you don't have any desire to run the organization. You're just carrying the load for Sonny.

Jason: I -- I can take care of it until he gets better.

Carly: But that's my point. What if Sonny getting better means he can't run the organization? You don't want to run it on a permanent basis. And let's say you do. What happens to the rest of your life?

Sonny: I think Lainey nailed it. I -- you know, I got this Bipolar thing. I'm not going to fight it anymore.

Emily: Sonny, that's great.

Sonny: I'm going to do whatever it takes to, you know, get better. Meds, therapy -- nothing to lose, right?

Emily: I'm so glad to hear you say that.

Sonny: You've helped me face this sickness. And I -- I -- I'll never -- I'm not going to be able to thank you enough. But I -- I don't -- I'm not going to put you through this anymore. I have -- I have to follow through. And I -- I need to do it alone.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Elizabeth: Lucky's addicted to pain pills. I found another bottle in his pocket.

Carly: You miss her. And you're not helping anyone by pushing Sam away.

Sonny: I can't be with you.

Emily: You're breaking up with me.
