Sonny: This mistake you made -- is there any way I can help you out or what?
Lulu: I -- I can't believe I even told you.
Sonny: You aren't the only person involved?
Lulu: No, I'm not.
Sonny: Is there anything I can do? What about the other person?
Lulu: I don't really know you that well, Mr. Corinthos. I'm not really comfortable talking about this.
Sonny: No, no, I understand. I'm going to get you a car --
Lulu: No, no, no. I mean, thank you very much, but it'll be okay.
Sonny: Okay, I'm not going to let you wander around in the middle of a blackout.
Lulu: I'll be okay. I will.
Lulu: No, I won't.
Patrick: Am I too late for dinner?
Robin: Not at all. Come in.
Patrick: Oh, were you that sure I'd come back?
Robin: Not really sure, just kind of hoping.
Epiphany: What are you doing here? I thought you went home.
Elizabeth: I did. But I came back because of the blackouts.
Epiphany: Well, we're pretty well okay here. Go home, get some rest, spend some time with your husband.
Elizabeth: Lucky's out.
Epiphany: Are you okay?
Elizabeth: I am fine.
Alexis: Sam -- Sam's not here.
Jason: Where is she?
Alexis: She's at the Metro Court. The air conditioning went down in my house because of the blackout. Uh -- ahem -- unfortunately, I -- I need a ride into town because my car broke down.
Jason: Why don't you call Ric?
Alexis: Um -- he's -- he's not here, the -- the girls are with him at the hotel. I know that we're not on the best of terms, but I --
Alexis: I really need a ride.
Jason: Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay --
Alexis: I can't breathe.
Jason: Okay, I'm going to -- I'm going to take you to the hospital, okay? Come on.
Georgie: Elizabeth? Hi. Do you know where the chart is for the books? You know, the -- the chart so I know which rooms to go to next?
Elizabeth: Oh, yeah. I'm sorry. I've got a lot on my mind right now. Georgie, where's your sister tonight?
Georgie: I -- I don't know. She just asked me to cover.
Elizabeth: You've been covering for her a lot lately.
Georgie: Yeah, she's -- she's busy.
Elizabeth: "Busy." She's in summer school?
Elizabeth: Did she get a job?
Elizabeth: Is she seeing someone?
Georgie: I don't know.
Elizabeth: Oh, come on, you're her sister. Wouldn't you know if she was seeing someone? Wouldn't you know if she were sleeping with him? Wouldn't you know if he was someone's husband?
Patrick: I'm sorry about walking out on you earlier.
Robin: You're allowed.
Patrick: No. It was rude, and I apologize.
Robin: Look, you were just exposed to a life-threatening disease. You're allowed to be a little off your game.
Patrick: No excuse. And about not wanting to be with you, it isn't because I'm not attracted to you. It's the opposite -- I want to protect you.
Robin: You already do. We're always careful.
Patrick: Robin, it's not enough. I -- I know now I'm negative, but the next six months --
Robin: I know -- there's a possibility you could still be infected.
Patrick: The H.I.V. strain that I might have is probably different than yours. It could seriously compromise your immune system. The drugs you're on now would be useless, and I -- I can't risk that.
Robin: I understand, more than you know.
Patrick: Look, I've had to deal with a lot since I was exposed -- the side effects of the P.E.P. protocol, fear in my father's eyes, gossip, doctors and nurses who should know better running the other direction. I can deal with that. But I wouldn't be able to live with myself if I got you sick.
Sonny: At one time your father and I, we were friends. We -- we were in business together. Do you remember Luke's club?
Lulu: The one with the monkeys in front of it?
Lulu: Yeah, I was scared of them.
Sonny: They were unique, like your dad.
Lulu: Did he borrow money from you?
Sonny: I was an investor.
Lulu: And did you threaten to take it over every five seconds like Tracy does with the Haunted Star?
Sonny: No, I would never do that. Your father and I were friends. We -- you know, we would go to the city every once in a while. We -- we went camping once with Lucky. He talked us into piercing his ear.
Lulu: I can't imagine Lucky with a pierced ear.
Sonny: Yeah, and it was somewhere in the woods around here -- I don't really remember -- but it doesn't matter. We sterilized the needle with the campfire or scotch. Either way, we did it. It was great, but your mother? Very upset.
Lulu: I can imagine.
Sonny: But we had a great time. I always admired your mother. You look more like her every time I see you.
Lulu: I miss her. And she wouldn't be too happy with me at the moment.
Sonny: You know, I'm not sure about this, but I think that your mother would be happy if I helped you out.
Lulu: Well, you wouldn't be judgmental, considering what profession you're in. No offense.
Sonny: None taken.
Lulu: So -- um -- so Carly's in Africa? Why? How did that --
Sonny: My kids do that all the time -- when they think they're in trouble, they change the subject.
Sonny: You know what? I'll call your brothers if you want, if that makes it --
Lulu: Um -- no, I was -- that's why I was coming down here. I was going to take the launch out to see Nikolas.
Sonny: Why don't you do that?
Lulu: Oh. I just don't know if I'm ready to deal with him, I guess. And Lucky is -- do you believe that someone could be broken, like, ruined, and that it runs in your family and there's nothing you can do about it?
Sonny: Did Lucky say that to you?
Lulu: I thought I could always rely on him whenever I needed him, and he's turning out to be more and more like my dad. And I'm a Spencer. I'm supposed to -- to be able to handle whatever happens to me.
Sonny: But you -- listen, you're a kid.
Lulu: But my dad is most proud of me whenever I can think on my own and -- and do whatever I need to do and live my own life and solve my own problems. I've been doing such a great job of that lately.
Sonny: You know something? Sometimes we -- we need help, even if we don't want to admit it.
Lulu: If I tell you what's happening, you cannot tell anyone.
Sonny: I won't say anything. I mean --
Lulu: You have to swear.
Sonny: I swear.
Sonny: Okay, I'm going to make a call --
Lulu: I'm pregnant.
Robin: When I first found out that I was H.I.V. positive, Stone was already dying. I assumed that I would live a few years at the most.
Patrick: How long ago was that?
Robin: Oh, it was in 1995.
Patrick: Before the cocktail.
Robin: Then, H.I.V. was still considered a death sentence -- to me, anyway. I mean, I had assumed that I would never have sex with anyone ever again. That was a given. But, you know, I really didn't mind it all that much. I had experienced the best, deepest kind of love with Stone, and most people never get to experience that for their entire life. I never would've thought that I'd live this long, much less have a career as a doctor or, you know, not to mention the sex life.
Patrick: A lot's changed since then.
Robin: AIDS is no longer considered a four-letter word -- at least in most places. People deal with it, they talk about it just like it's any other disease. There's better education, better prevention. Early detection is saving lives. I mean, I am proof of that, that the drug protocols are effective. But some things haven't changed. There's still no cure. And there still is fear -- fear of catching it by casual contact, and the fear of giving it to someone else by being intimate.
Robin: I was lucky. I got over that because I was with someone that was incredibly brave and so patient with me and kind. He helped me believe that I could be loved again and that I could love again. That's what I feel for you. I mean, whether or not we end up falling in love, I know that you won't hurt me. But until you know that, until you believe it, I can wait.
Patrick: You're amazing.
Robin: It's about time you figured that out.
Elizabeth: How long have you known your sister's been sleeping with my husband?
Georgie: I thought about telling you.
Elizabeth: You thought about telling me, but you didn't.
Georgie: Elizabeth, you were already dealing with so much. I just didn't want to hurt you.
Elizabeth: Oh, I think you're protecting your sister.
Georgie: Yeah, and I'm not going to apologize for that. Listen, I prayed that she would stop, I begged her to. We've been in so many fights over this.
Elizabeth: It's been going on for a long time?
Georgie: I hate that she's doing this to you. I keep telling her that she's a better person than this.
Elizabeth: Well, apparently not because she hasn't stopped.
Georgie: I know, I know, and you hate her, but she's not an evil person. She's just been really messed up since Jesse --
Elizabeth: Don't make excuses for her.
Georgie: Listen -- listen to me, please. It's just Lucky and Jesse were partners, she's always had a crush on Lucky, and I know that it's wrong that I thought this, but I just thought it would burn out and go away.
Elizabeth: Look, I definitely blame the both of them, but Lucky had a ring on his finger. He made a commitment to me and to my little boy. He chose to ignore his vows and ruin everything we had.
Georgie: You're going to get through this.
Elizabeth: I'm guessing not.
Georgie: Listen, Dillon and I have recently been through --
Elizabeth: Oh, you and Dillon are barely out of high school. What was your last major fight about, prom? You couldn't possibly understand what it feels like to have your husband walk away from your marriage.
Georgie: You and Lucky have been in love for such a long time.
Elizabeth: Yeah, and we thought that love would pull us through.
Georgie: It will.
Elizabeth: Yeah, and we also believed that we could make it in New York City with him just singing on the streets.
Georgie: You grew up. So what? You're still the love of each other's lives, and, Elizabeth, that's worth fighting for.
Elizabeth: I've fought enough. I have been at work, and he was grieving over the loss of his partner. I have been accused of cheating on him, I have dealt with his mood swings, and when things got worse -- what did I do? -- I blamed myself. If only I'd been more patient or forgiving. Well, I just walked in on your sister and my husband about to have sex in my bed. I am fresh out of understanding.
Lulu: I tricked Dillon into sleeping with me by trashing Georgie and saying that she was sleeping with this other guy, Diego Alcazar. I'm sure you know his dad. Anyway, Diego was not sleeping with Georgie. I lied about it so that I could be with Dillon, but I did not expect it to happen that night. And I felt bad about lying, and when I tried to tell Dillon the truth, he didn't believe me. He found out eventually, though, and I was relieved. But it took me a while to realize that I was going to lose him as a friend forever. Because he can't find it in his heart to forgive me.
Sonny: Well, you just got to give him some time.
Lulu: He still wants Georgie. And I can't help hoping that she's not going to take him back. And I know that that's selfish and wrong, but it doesn't even matter because Dillon hates me.
Sonny: Okay, Dillon doesn't know your situation?
Lulu: We were careful. But we must have made a mistake.
Sonny: Okay, I know a little -- a little bit about this -- this situation from Dillon's side of things.
Lulu: You got someone pregnant on accident? Who? I'm sorry, I'm -- that was really rude. The point is, I'm not ready to be a mom.
Sonny: Well, I doubt that Dillon's ready to be a father.
Lulu: You swear you won't tell him?
Sonny: I gave you my word, but you -- you're going to have to take, you know, a breath, and think things through.
Lulu: I wish I could just make time go backwards -- hit "rewind." Well, that's exactly what Dillon would say.
Sonny: I mean, look, you know, the truth of the matter is, you don't have to go through this alone.
Lulu: Yes, I do.
Sonny: I have a daughter, okay? If she came to me with the same situation, I would hope that she would give me a chance to help her.
Lulu: My dad doesn't want to hear about my algebra homework. I can guarantee you he does not want to hear about this. Anyway, I don't even know where he is.
Sonny: Well, I understand how tough that could be.
Lulu: I mean, I know that my dad loves me, kind of -- when he can think about it. But he doesn't care about what happens to me. So I got no one.
Alexis: Thank you. I -- I'm really all right. I can take it from here.
Jason: That cough is -- is getting worse.
Alexis: I know. I just haven't had time to see a doctor.
Jason: Do you want me to call somebody right now?
Alexis: No, I'm okay. I just want you to change your mind about going to see Sam.
Jason: What happens between me and Sam has nothing to do with you.
Alex: I know that. Thanks for the ride.
Epiphany: Are you all right?
Alexis: Yeah, I just -- I have something in my throat.
Epiphany: You want me to call a doctor for you?
Alexis: No, I'm just -- I'm -- ahem -- I'm here to see an assault victim for a statement.
Epiphany: Well, if you give me the name, I'll look up the room.
Alexis: No, that's okay, I have it. I have...
Sonny: You need to know, you have people who can get you through this. You -- your mother, obviously, no. But -- Luke's gone, but you know what?
Lulu: And Lucky is totally out of it, and Nikolas will just throw money at the problem and try and manage it.
Sonny: Your Aunt Bobbie -- she understands. Carly is great in a crisis.
Lulu: And she's also in Africa.
Sonny: Yeah, but she'll be back soon.
Lulu: And I know exactly what she would tell me to do.
Sonny: You can never second-guess Carly. Okay? You know what? I'll tell you what I'll -- I'll tell you what I'll do. I'm going to help you any way I can. I'll -- I'll get some people to set up an adoption. If you want to keep the baby, I'll give you money to get started. Whatever you need, I can do that for you.
Lulu: Thank you. That's -- that's very -- that's really generous. I just -- I need to think.
Sonny: It's a lot to process. But you know what? You're not going to -- you're not going to do that out here by yourself. I'm going to get my -- my driver to take you to the Quartermaines.
Lulu: No. No, I cannot go back there yet. It's too weird.
Lulu: And this is fine.
Sonny: Okay, you know what? Then I'm going to have one of my guys keep an eye on you. I mean, you won't even know he's around. You can just --
Lulu: No, you don't have to do that.
Sonny: I am not leaving you here alone.
Lulu: Thank you, but just swear that you're not going to tell anyone, especially Dillon.
Sonny: I hear you. As far as I'm concerned, we never had this conversation. But you just have to understand, this is a very delicate issue here. You got to know that you got -- you got to -- you can't do this by yourself. Even strong people need help. Let somebody help you.
Lulu: Actually, Mr. Corinthos, there is something you can do.
Sonny: No, Sonny.
Lulu: Sonny -- tell your daughter that you love her.
Patrick: So how did you reheat the food?
Robin: This apartment has a gas range.
Patrick: Looks wonderful.
Robin: Thank you. You know, I don't cook very often, but when I do, I find it to be very comforting.
Patrick: Ahem. Do you mind if I get this to go?
Georgie: I will go over there right now and drag Maxie out.
Elizabeth: You can't fix this. Nor do I want you involved.
Georgie: Maxie is my sister, and I've known you and Lucky forever.
Elizabeth: Well, you --
Georgie: Maxie has no right to destroy your lives.
Elizabeth: You can't change her. And I can't change Lucky.
Georgie: When Dillon and I were having our problems, he wouldn't listen to me.
Elizabeth: Do you think I haven't confronted him?
Georgie: I know, but if Maxie knew, and -- and she found out that -- that you know --
Elizabeth: Are you kidding? Seriously, are you kidding? Because your sister is so proud of herself. Patrick had to practically pull me off of her today. And I told her that I swore I would tell the world what's going on if she ever got near Lucky again. She must have run straight to him. Maybe she set this whole thing up -- I don't know. I don't even care because Lucky certainly doesn't.
Georgie: Yes, he does.
Elizabeth: Huh. Take your stupid list.
Georgie: You're just going to continue to work like nothing's happened?
Elizabeth: I need the money. And I am not going to blame myself because my husband chose to destroy our marriage.
Georgie: You can't just let those years go.
Elizabeth: I have nothing left to fight for. It's gone. There is nothing left to worry about, nothing. And I'm not going to spend one more second trying to salvage a marriage that Lucky doesn't want to be a part of.
Jason: Well, just keep searching the Metro Court, okay? Sam could have been delayed. Well, just tell her it's important. I need to talk to her. I'm at her house right now. Whew.
Epiphany: Is everything okay?
Epiphany: With the patient you came to see? The assault victim?
Alexis: Oh -- thank you for asking. She's in very bad shape. But her real concern is her children.
Sonny: So how do you like this air conditioning? It's a lot better than your house, isn't it? And you know what? My A.C. went out. And guess what -- the only place in Port Charles that has electricity -- you know what that is? The Metro Court. They probably have a generator. What do you think?
Waitress: Have you guys decided yet?
Sonny: Yeah, yeah. I think we're going to have your world famous ice cream.
Waitress: Ooh. And I'll make sure you get some with sprinkles.
Sonny: It's been a long time since we spent time together, huh?
Kristina: Why -- why couldn't I come and see you?
Sonny: Well, because I was -- I was sick. But I'm better now.
Kristina: Mommy's sick, too.
Robin: April, wake up. Hi. How you feeling?
April: You stopped by on your way from a picnic?
Robin: Actually, it's dinner.
April: Yeah? Whose?
Patrick: Think of it this way. You could use the calories.
April: You brought me dinner? Why?
Robin: Well, we decided that we wanted to share our dinner with you.
Patrick: Unless, of course, you're full on mystery meat and instant mashed potatoes and stuff.
April: Well, I guess my blood work must be terrible if you're bringing in the last supper.
Robin: No, no, stop. We're here for a change of pace, that's all.
Patrick: Ahem. But, then again, the less you eat, the more there is for us.
Robin: Hmm. We have chicken marsala, some wild rice, broccoli rabe, real bread.
April: Okay. I could actually eat some real food. But it's obvious that the two of you have a hot and heavy romance going on, so why would you want to have dinner with the AIDS patient?
Patrick: Because I'm starting to realize what you're going through. You don't whine. You just get tough. You don't complain about anything. You don't show pain. You lie about throwing up.
April: Yeah, unless someone gets on my last nerve. Then I barf all over them.
Patrick: That's a good point. Keep your sense of humor. When somebody asks you how you're feeling, you say "fine." Because really it's none of their business.
April: That's right.
Patrick: But then you gradually stop socializing. Stop returning phone calls. Go to work. That's it. Your life starts to revolve around television shows and books and internet. Because it's just easier to be alone. You're really only protecting yourself. But then, I think, somewhere in there, you start to lose yourself. But you know what the worst thing is?
Patrick: The food here sucks.
Dr. O'Donnell: Hey, you can't be turning me down again.
Kelly: Turning you down? I haven't even heard a decent offer yet.
Dr. O'Donnell: The lights could go out at any second, you know.
Kelly: Oh. Well, you never know.
[Dr. O'Donnell chuckles]
Elizabeth: What are you doing? Dr. O'Donnell is engaged, and you know that! And is this how you're going to treat your wife? You're just going to go behind her back and -- and cheat on her while you're at the hospital? God, have either one of you even given a second thought to the people who might be affected by what you're doing?
Epiphany: Nurse Spencer, I need a word with you. It was a bad idea for you to come back to work today. You are in no shape to be taking care of patients. As your shift supervisor, I am sending you home.
Sonny: So your mother's been sick, huh? Is she sick? What kind of sick? Like, she's got a cold? Sniffles?
Kristina: She coughs all the time, even at night.
Sonny: Yeah? She -- did she call a doctor?
Kristina: She said she's allergic to her building.
Sonny: Is that what she told you? Well, you don't have to worry about it -- you know why? Because I think I'm think allergic to the police department.
Alexis: Hey. Hi. Hello, you, ice cream face. Sitting with your daddy, huh? I'm sorry, did I miss a scheduled visit?
Sonny: No, it's been a while since I've seen my daughter. I just wanted to spend a little time.
Alexis: Oh, I know. I -- I know. It's just -- sweetie, I know you want to spend time with your dad, too, but it's late. You know what time it is? And you've got camp tomorrow.
Sonny: Well, why don't you sit for a little bit? Have some hot fudge there.
Alexis: I -- can I --
Alexis: Can I talk to you for one second? I'll be right back.
Sonny: Yeah. Will you excuse me for a second? Okay.
Alexis: I don't want to be difficult.
Sonny: No, I was just having a little dessert --
Alexis: Because I know you want to spend time with her.
Sonny: We'll just, you know, hang out, you know.
Alexis: I can't. It's just not that simple.
Sonny: Okay, if this is about Ric --
Alexis: It's not about Ric.
Sonny: Are you okay?
Alexis: I -- I just -- I just want to take her up to the room and put her to bed.
Sonny: Okay, but she's my daughter.
Alexis: Please -- please don't make me fight with you tonight. Please.
Singer: Do you see it takes everything to be in this moment I can't just end up with a photograph of the one that I lost is it safe to love you will you turn around and tell me it's already over will you tear my heart up and tell me how sorry you are
Jason: Whew. Whew. Ugh.
Singer: Well, years play and memories stay and now I believe that my heart will simply fall apart in so many pieces
Patrick: So if the whole doctor thing doesn't work out, you could always be a chef.
April: Yeah, where did you learn to cook like this?
Robin: Well, I lived in Paris for a little while, so I learned to appreciate really good food. I took the time to eat really well. Well, not every day. I did have a lot of meals alone, but besides that, that's why this meal is so special -- because of the present company and because of what we have in common.
April: Yeah, don't remind me.
Robin: You know, as terrible as this disease is, there is this strange kind of benefit. We have the opportunity to cherish every single day. Nights like this mean more. Food tastes better.
Patrick: Except for at the hospital, because, like I said, the food here sucks.
April: It is so true.
Robin: See? We can find humor in almost anything. I've learned to give myself the little things.
April: Especially the little things.
Patrick: To the little things. Small acts of kindness, random or otherwise.
Robin: To this moment.
Lulu: Who's there?
Dillon: Hey, it's me.
Dillon: Just me.
Dillon: Hi. Sorry I startled you. What are you doing here?
Lulu: Um -- I just -- I didn't want to be at the Quartermaines' during the blackout.
Dillon: Oh. Yeah, I don't blame you.
Lulu: And it seems cooler out here.
Lulu: There's something --
Dillon: I just --
Lulu: That I wanted to --
Dillon: Tell you. You go --
Lulu: You go first.
Dillon: No, you --
Lulu: No. You go first.
Dillon: Um -- huh. Uh -- Georgie and I are getting back together.
Lulu: Oh, wow, that's -- that's great.
Dillon: Yeah. I just want -- I wanted to tell you in person, so --
Lulu: No -- um -- you love her. I -- I -- I knew that from the start. I'm really glad that my lie didn't ruin everything.
Dillon: No, I believed you, you know. I mean -- and that wasn't fair to any of us. So, what were you going to tell me, hmm?
Alexis: I've had a terrible day, and I just don't have the strength right now to argue with you about Kristina.
Sonny: What's wrong?
Alexis: Nothing is wrong. It's just that it's a heat wave, and the power could go out again, and I -- I don't want her to be scared.
Sonny: Kristina said you were sick and that you were allergic to your building. What's -- what's going on with that?
Alexis: She said that?
Sonny: And you've been coughing all night.
Alexis: I ran out of cough syrup. Please don't push this.
Sonny: No --
Alexis: Please. Don't do it tonight, please.
Sonny: Mama's right. Way past your bedtime. We're going to eat ice cream some other time. I'm going to -- you know what? I'll take you to McKinsey's, and I'll get you a three-fudge sundae. Would you like that, Kristina?
Kristina: Could Sam come, too?
Sonny: Sam? I'll bring your big sister. Whatever you need. Yeah, that'd be great.
Alexis: Honey, why don't you give your dad a big hug? We'll go -- we'll go upstairs and go to bed, okay?
Sonny: I love you, girl.
Bartender: We just lost our generators. The doors lock automatically due to security. I'm afraid we're stuck here for a while.
Alexis: Okay, listen, why don't you go finish your sundae? Everything's okay, okay? Go have some more.
Sonny: Hey, hey -- hey, come here. Sit down. What is -- Kristina's right. You're sick? What's wrong with you?
Sam: Jason --
singer: Do I need to be invisible to just survive? Or am I foolishly wasting my time? I try so hard to quiet my expensive dreams before they take me out and leave me wondering baby, it's just you and me we got a thing they can't shake maybe it's a little hard sometimes to take but I'll tell you something it's a life worth living just so you know wouldn't give it up, no
Sam: You can't touch me. No.
Jason: That's not cool. Get that thing out of here.
Sam: You going to save me now? No!
Jason: No, I'm going to throw you in the ocean.
[Knock on door]
Singer: Is it all a market war in this economy filling up headlines with our fantasies
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Sonny: How sick are you? What's going on here, really?
Nikolas: What is it you need, Lucky?
Lucky: I've screwed up everything.
Elizabeth: Lucky's having an affair.
Jason: Sam is sleeping with Ric.
Sam: I did the worst possible thing I could think of.
Jason: Try not to think about it.
Elizabeth: I just want to be right here in this moment.
