Dillon: You're pregnant?
Lulu: I'm really sorry.
Dillon: And there's -- there's no possibility that it's, um, a mistake or --
Lulu: Oh, I made doubly sure. I took a home-pregnancy test and it came up positive and I just confirmed it at the clinic, and before you ask, you're the first and only person that I've ever slept with, so there's no doubt.
Dillon: Oh. Whoa. I'm going to be a father.
Lucky: My name is Lucky, and I'm an addict -- a drug addict. I had an accident at work. It caused a lot of damage to my spine and I was prescribed painkillers. Somewhere along the line, I -- I don't know where -- the pills, they -- they grabbed a hold of me and I wouldn't let go.
Sonny: I usually don't make it a practice to get into people's business. I don't like people getting into my business and this is not easy for me to come here and -- but you are Sam's mother and you have a right to know what she's doing.
Alexis: You're clearly not comfortable with this, and quite frankly, I'm not, either -- ahem -- so I don't want you violating anybody's confidences. I'm sure if Sam has something to tell me, she'll tell me.
Sonny: Not this. She's leaving town.
Alexis: That's odd that she would say goodbye to you and not to her own mother.
Sonny: I asked her to stop by because I kind of know how Sam works and I knew that she would bolt after what happened.
Alexis: What exactly did Sam tell you?
Sam: There's something that you need to know. I slept with Ric.
Jason: I know.
Sam: You know? What do you mean, you know?
Jason: Uh -- I was at the lake house the night of the blackout and I saw you and Ric together.
Sam: I really don't understand what you would be doing at the lake house.
Jason: I was -- I was actually coming to tell you that I'd been -- been wrong to push you away.
Sonny: Sam is very upset; she's hurt. She hasn't been able to regain her balance since the breakup with Jason. She said to me that she loves him a lot and that the rejection colors everything she does. She's reeling and she blames you for that. I'm not saying it's right or wrong. Look, I'm not -- it's warranted or not, whatever. She just thinks that because of you, she lost Jason.
Alexis: I'm painfully aware of that.
Sonny: And if she stays in Port Charles, you know, she doesn't want to run into everything she misses and she doesn't want to hurt herself or other people, so she feels it's best for everybody if she leaves town.
Alexis: Sam and I had a horrible fight. For various reasons, I -- I don't have much patience lately and I got tired of her self-destructive attitude that she has toward Jason and I got so tired of being used as a scapegoat. My intention was never to hurt her. It was just to point out a few things and -- and sometimes in an effort to do that, you say things that are hard for the other person to hear. Ahem. So I -- I -- I pushed too hard and she ended up interpreting it as me thinking that I'm ashamed of her, which couldn't be further from the truth because I admire her because I know that she's survived against very difficult odds. I think she's determined and I think she's extremely focused. I just worry that sometimes she focuses on the wrong things.
Sonny: Well, that's not for -- you know, for you to say.
Alexis: She has her whole future out there right in front of her. All she has to do is just to grab on to it with both hands and make of it what she wants it to be and I will never, ever understand why she chooses to just take away all of her opportunities by wanting to live with a man who does what he does for a living. I'm sorry. I don't mean to offend you or anyone else, but I don't understand it and I never will, so sue me.
Sonny: Maybe you've never been that much in love.
Alexis: I think that Sam doesn't realize how precious her life is or realize how quickly it can be taken away.
Sonny: You okay?
Alexis: I'm fine.
Sam: You came to the lake house? To tell me that you had been wrong about us?
Sam: Yeah. Okay, wait a minute, Jason. I'm trying to understand all this. You were finally going to admit that you still loved me and that you wanted me to move back home with you?
Jason: It didn't happen, so what difference does it make?
Sam: Jason, it makes a difference to me. It makes a difference to me. All those months that I -- I begged you and I -- and I cried and I -- I even tried to trick you to come back to me, and finally you realize that you want me back and you come to get me and I'm -- and I'm with Ric. This -- okay, this has got to be a joke. Jason, do you have any idea -- do you have any idea at all why I slept with Ric?
Jason: No, no, Sam. And I don't -- I don't want to know.
Sam: No, please. Jason, please. I want you to know. You have to know. I was -- I was drunk and I was really, really angry, mostly at myself for being stupid enough to believe in love, for finally letting my guard down and believing that something as -- as good as what we had would last when I know, I know -- my life has showed me over and over again that nothing ever does. So I started drinking whiskey because whiskey is my medicine. It tastes like cheap bars and bad, really, really bad choices, and I deserved to go back there for being dumb enough --
Sam: For being dumb enough to think that I could have anything else, that I deserved anything else.
Jason: Did Ric force you?
Sam: It would be a lot easier for you if I said yes and if all of this happened without my consent, but it didn't happen like that, Jason. I mean, I was drunk, but I could've said no. You know, if I -- if I would've left town weeks ago, I think things would've worked out a lot differently for all of us.
Lulu: I hope that you're not thinking that I did this on purpose. Having a baby was not part of my big plan to get you. I would never do that.
Dillon: No, I know that. I know that. You were careful. What, it's a -- it's a one-in-a-million thing.
Lulu: 5% factor.
Lulu: Condoms are 95% effective.
Dillon: Oh. Yeah. Some luck of the draw. Look, Lulu, I don't -- I don't want you to -- just don't worry, okay?
Lulu: Are you kidding?
Dillon: No, I'm not kidding. I'm -- I'm saying that, you know, I'm going to -- I'm going to support you through this. I'm going to --
Dillon: This --
Lulu: Dillon, I don't even know what this is! I am still in shock!
Dillon: Lulu --
Lulu: This is not something I could've even planned for. Having a baby wasn't in my realm of consciousness.
Dillon: All right. I know -- I know that, okay? I know that, but, you know, tough decisions have to be made now, so do preparations. I mean, we're going to get yelled at and, you know, we can probably -- we can probably stay in my family's house. I'll --
Lulu: Dillon, you --
Dillon: I'll skip my next semester of school. You just -- just don't go -- just don't go to your next semester. I can -- I can get a job or something if my mom threatens to cut us off, but I'm young and I'm capable and I can support a family, and you know what? If you need it, I can marry you. I can marry you --
Lulu: Oh, Dillon, get a grip!
Dillon: What is wrong?
Lulu: Just stop talking like this.
Dillon: Talking like what?
Lulu: Where did marriage come in? The ink hasn't even dried on your divorce papers and you're still in love with the girl that you were married to.
Dillon: Look, Lulu, why are you mad at me? Why are you mad at me right now? I -- I'm trying to be supportive to you.
Lulu: Well, that's great, but someone needs to be realistic. If you were too young to be married, then you're obviously too young to be a dad, and I'm even younger than you!
Dillon: Oh, you know what? That doesn't really matter now, does it, because that thing is inside of you and it's coming out in nine months whether you like it or not! We can't go to a -- we can't go to a lawyer and have him nullify it on paper, okay? There's a -- there's a flesh-and-blood human being inside of you that we made and it's not his or her fault, okay? So I'm sorry, but we have to step up right now. We have to do the right thing.
Lulu: Oh --
Dillon: We have to care for it and honor it --
Lulu: You sound exactly like your grandfather.
Dillon: Oh, come --
Lulu: All we have is a plus sign on a stick and you're already putting it in prep school?
Dillon: What do you want me to do, Lulu? I don't know! What -- what do you -- what do you expect from me? Do you want me to just say I don't care and walk away, because I can, but I have never been in this situation before, so excuse me if I --
Lulu: I just need to breathe! God --
Dillon: Lulu? Lulu?
Sonny: Have you seen a doctor for this? Have they given you medicine or --
Alexis: Hmm. I don't think there's a prescription for what I have.
Sonny: Well, you know what? Maybe you should get a second opinion, because the little time that I've seen this, you're getting worse.
Alexis: What are you, a doctor?
Sonny: I don't have to be a doctor to figure out what's going on here, Alexis.
Alexis: Nothing to worry about.
Sonny: Okay, you keep telling me that, I'm going to know you're covering something. And as Kristina's father, I will get down to the bottom of this and figure out what's really going on, so you need to tell me.
Alexis: All right. I -- I may have been downplaying it a bit.
Alexis: This condition that I have.
Sonny: What condition?
Alexis: It's something caused by some environmental hoo-ha in the building and somebody's got to come in and check something out and I really should've dealt with it, but I'm too busy dealing with my own family hoo-ha.
Sonny: Okay. You know what? Uh -- I'm not going to tell you how to manage your health. But if it does get serious, you need to tell me.
Alexis: I will, I promise. I want you to tell me something.
Alexis: Why did you come here and tell me about Sam leaving? What is in it for you?
Sonny: Maybe it's -- there's something in it for Sam. You got the information. You're going to act on it or not.
Sam: When you saw me with -- when you saw me with Ric, did you even think about stopping it?
Jason: I thought about killing him. I just -- I just walked away instead.
Sam: God, this can't be happening.
Jason: You know, I kept pushing you away over and over so I mean, really, I have no right to be upset about how you chose to deal with it.
Sam: Jason, when you left the lake house, what did you do?
Jason: I just -- you know, I came back here and started drinking. And Elizabeth showed up; she was upset. She just found out Lucky was having an affair with Maxie Jones.
Sam: Oh. Now, that's unlikely.
Jason: Yeah. But Lucky's strung out on pills. Anyway, Elizabeth really had no -- no place to go, so I said she could stay here.
Jason: We slept together.
Dillon: Um -- I need -- I got to -- I got to talk to you about something. It's pretty -- it's pretty life-altering. Um --
Georgie: I already know. I overheard Lulu talking to the clinic, and it looks like she took my advice and told you.
Dillon: I don't know what to say. I mean, after all the times that you and I --
Georgie: I know.
Dillon: And then twice with Lulu and I'm a father. I don't -- it's --
Georgie: How do you feel about --
Dillon: Um -- well, overwhelmed, um -- out of my league. Everything I knew to be true yesterday just no longer applies, you know, and what does this mean for you and me? That's another thing is we're just getting back on track.
Lucky: I'm glad you're here.
Elizabeth: I didn't plan to be here. I came home to pack and move to Gram's. But I couldn't. No matter how hurt or angry or betrayed I feel right now, we married each other through good and bad times and I pray to God it can't get any worse than this, but I think I owe it to us and our son to at least hear what you have to say.
Lucky: I appreciate that --
Elizabeth: I'm not done. I look back over the past few months and I realize that every conversation we have had was influenced by your drug addiction. So if you're standing here right now high, then you can forget it because what we have to say here tonight is way too important.
Lucky: No, I haven't taken anything. In fact, I just came from narcotics anonymous.
Elizabeth: I know. I saw you there after I found your note.
Lucky: Then you know that I'm facing the fact that I have a problem and I want to do anything possible to fix it, I swear.
Elizabeth: It's easy to say the words.
Lucky: But I mean them.
Elizabeth: Just like you meant it when you tossed the bottle of pills into the harbor?
Lucky: No, a lot's happened since then, a lot that I can't take back. But I can't go on living life like this. I'm going to beat this. I'm going to do whatever it takes just as long as I know that you won't leave me.
Sam: You and Elizabeth? Jason, I thought -- I thought you were just friends.
Jason: We are.
Sam: So, this was, what? Payback? I mean, was it a way to hurt me --
Jason: Sam, no, I don't --
Sam: The way I hurt you?
Jason: I don't play games like that. And I wouldn't use Elizabeth.
Sam: Do I get to know why?
Jason: Uh -- I mean, it just, you know -- it just happened. We both were hurt. Alone. We needed something and we found it in each other for the night.
Sam: I see.
Jason: You know, I wouldn't even have said anything to you, but you were honest --
Jason: About Ric and I just thought I should be honest with you.
Sam: Okay. Can you look at me and not see me with Ric?
Sam: Okay, I'll -- I'll take that as a no. I would rather you just push me away at this point, but I guess I'm not -- I'm not in a position to complain right now. I kind of asked for this, huh?
Jason: Uh --
Sam: Well, there's no undoing it now, huh? Leaving town actually seems like the best option after all. Okay.
Jason: Sam, just -- Sam?
Jason: You shouldn't leave.
Lucky: I just want to know that we haven't lost what we meant together -- our family. Just tell me that I have a -- a chance to save it, because I don't know if I can win this fight without you.
Elizabeth: I can't be your reason to get straight, Lucky. You have to do it because you want to.
Lucky: And I do. And I promise, I will. I -- I love you. Please let me just try and fix the trust that I broke.
Elizabeth: I am your wife. And I will stay. But before that, I am a mother. I have a little boy who depends on me to make the right choices for -- for his emotional and his physical well-being. That is my most important role. And I will not subject Cameron to living a life with an addict. And if you and I even have a prayer of working things out, then no more lies. You want me to help you, you let me in.
Lucky: I will. I promise.
Elizabeth: And listen carefully to my promise to you. If you break your word and you start using again, I will take my son and go.
Bernie: You wanted to see me?
Sonny: Yeah. I need you to handle something for me.
Bernie: Um -- all due respect, Mr. Corinthos, if this is business-related, Mr. Morgan has to be--
Sonny: The order's from me, Bernie.
Bernie: What do you want me to do?
Sonny: Okay, I need you to track down Stan. He can get anything, as you know. Whatever it costs, whatever arm you have to twist -- I need to find out what's wrong with Alexis Davis.
Bernie: The D.A.?
Sonny: I think she's ill.
Bernie: Consider it done.
Sonny: On the Q.T.
Sonny: Yeah. I got nothing to say to you, Ric.
Ric: Really? Apparently, you have things to say to other people. Let me ask you something. Was there any particular reason you had to go to Alexis and warn her that Sam was leaving town?
Sonny: You're not happy about that?
Ric: No, I'm not happy about it, Sonny. Why don't you let Sam go? It's best for everybody.
Sonny: No, it's best for you, because it can -- you can conveniently forget that you nailed your own stepdaughter and that you don't have to look over your shoulder to see if Jason's there. Or worse, face your wife and deal with the fact that you betrayed her in the worst possible way.
Sam: Why would you want me to stay, Jason? I can see looking at me is torture for you and I feel the same exact way, so what's the point?
Jason: Because as long as I've known you, you've always wanted a real family. You know, people you belong to, who love you. And I know Danny filled that void for a long time, but you know, you have your mother, you got two little sisters. Alexis, Molly, Kristina are your blood. I mean, you finally have the roots you've always wanted. Don't turn your back on that.
Sam: I guess they're not reasons enough to stay in a place where I used to share a life with you.
Lucky: It's funny how perceptive kids are today. Cam, he -- he knew something was wrong. He'd come and give me this look sometimes and keep his distance. Is he okay?
Elizabeth: He's at my grandmother's. She knows we're having problems, but I didn't go into detail.
Lucky: You're not going to tell her anything, are you?
Elizabeth: What do you mean? About the pills?
Lucky: I'd just rather you didn't.
Elizabeth: Lucky, she loves you. She would want to help. Why -- why are you trying to hide the fact that you're in recovery?
Lucky: I just don't want any word to get around the station.
Elizabeth: Well, I doubt she'd run down there and make an announcement. Okay. I won't say anything. But that's subject to change if I need her support.
Lucky: Fair enough. I'm really not trying to cover, it's just I want to hold together what I have left. I mean, if Mac finds out that one of his detectives was addicted to pills, it's --
Elizabeth: Not to mention, sleeping with his daughter. And while we're on the subject -- what about Maxie?
Lucky: Maxie was confused and needy since Jesse died. She thought she was helping.
Elizabeth: Well, let me lay down another ground rule for you. I don't really care how confused or needy Maxie is. If you want our marriage to work, I suggest you not even breathe in her direction.
Lucky: Maxie isn't even an issue. My only priority is to get well and to prove to you you were right to have faith in me. I owe you an apology about Patrick. I made up in my mind that you were having this affair, because of the pills, and it just -- it was an excuse for me to keep taking them. But I know you. And I know that you would -- I know that you would never cheat on me with anyone else.
Sonny: Ah. Did you find out anything?
Bernie: Stan got it.
Sonny: Oh. Okay, this is -- this is accurate? Are you sure about that?
Bernie: The latest test results from D.A. Davis' confidential medical files.
Sonny: All right, then. Um -- this goes nowhere.
Bernie: I understand.
Sonny: Hi, Viola, this is Sonny. Yeah. I want to make good on that promise I made to Kristina -- about, you know, ice cream.
Sam: Det. Rodriguez said you wanted to see me.
Alexis: I'm aware of your plans. I wanted to speak to you before you left.
Sam: Well, that's good. Have you ever heard of a cell phone?
Alexis: I didn't think you'd come voluntarily.
Sam: Well, actually, you're right about that. I think we both pretty much said everything that we needed to say.
Alexis: Not quite.
Sam: Don't worry. I'm -- I'm leaving on my own accord, not because of you, so you don't have to worry about your mothering record. It's still intact. Molly and Kristina will -- will be living tributes to you as a mother. Me -- you don't -- you don't really have to worry about me, okay? So I -- I hope you live a -- a very long, happy, healthy life. Thank you.
Alexis: Unfortunately, I don't think that's going to happen.
Lulu: Do you have a minute?
Georgie: Oh, yeah. Sure.
Lulu: Uh -- maybe this -- this is not a good idea. I don't know if I should be talking to you about this.
Georgie: It's okay.
Lulu: I assume you've seen Dillon since I talked to him.
Lulu: Is he okay? I sort of went off on him, and I know that he was trying to be standup and supportive, but I felt like I was being smothered.
Georgie: I know. Well, you have to understand, Dillon's only trying to do what he thinks is right.
Lulu: And I realize that I should be grateful that he didn't spit on me. But he started talking about marriage and this future and -- and I felt like I couldn't breathe. And Dillon sees us as parents already, and I --
Lulu: I don't even know if I want this baby.
Georgie: You're thinking about putting it up for adoption? Oh. You're thinking about having an abortion.
Maxie: Hey. I got your message. I brought you something.
Lucky: I'm not surprised you thought pills are what I wanted.
Maxie: Well, I was hoping it's not all you wanted.
Maxie: Wait, Lucky -- why did you do that?
Lucky: Because I can't take that stuff anymore.
Maxie: But you need them.
Lucky: I'm an addict, Maxie.
Maxie: No, you're hurting.
Lucky: No, you know what? I've been to my first N.A. meeting. I'm officially in recovery. I can't take any more pills again. I -- I've already promised Elizabeth, and I promised myself.
Lucky: Yes, my wife.
Maxie: I know who she is. I know what she's been to you and what she hasn't.
Lucky: Elizabeth is giving me another chance. I can't blow it. That means I can never see you again.
[Knock on door]
Jason: I -- I didn't -- I didn't expect you to come back.
Elizabeth: Can I come in?
Jason: Yeah, yeah, come on in. Something happen with Lucky?
Elizabeth: Yeah, something happened, something that I didn't expect. I went home to tell him that I was leaving. I got my suitcase, I was going to pack, I was out of there, and --
Jason: And what? Something changed.
Elizabeth: I found a note. He went to a narcotics anonymous meeting. I saw him there. I heard him. And then when he came home, he begged me to stay, and -- so I said okay.
Jason: Yeah, you know, if that's what you want, I'm -- I'm happy for you.
Elizabeth: I don't even know if our marriage can be saved. He -- the trust has been broken. But I did vow to -- to stick with him through better or worse, and it just seems hypocritical of me to bail on him when he's having this much trouble.
Jason: I -- I totally understand. Just be careful, you know? You don't want to do something because you don't want to be a hypocrite. That can really, really backfire.
Elizabeth: Right. Listen, if -- if Lucky ever found out that we slept together, it could really ruin his whole recovery process. It would be the perfect excuse for him to go back on his pills. Do you think you could promise that the one night we had together will stay between us?
Jason: It's -- it's too late.
Sonny: Don't be shy. Go ahead, dig in. I know that I haven't been around much lately, right? Because I haven't been feeling very well. But you know what? Guess what. I'm going to come see you a lot more from now on. Is that okay with you?
Kristina: Will Mommy get better, too?
Sam: Look, I'm tired of being angry and resenting you. And I am sure you're tired of sucking up to me all the time. So I just think it would be a lot easier if I -- if I disappear. Hey, I mean, at least we found each other, right? It's one less mystery in life.
Alexis: I really wanted to be a good mother to you; to do right by you. But I can't think about you anymore. I need to think about Kristina and Molly. And they need you right now.
Sam: What do you -- Molly? She won't even remember me. And Kristina -- she's young enough to be resilient still. And, you know, they have you. They have you, the perfect mother, so --
Alexis: Their perfect mother has cancer.
Sam: What did you say?
Alexis: I said I have lung cancer. Stage two, and I may die.
>> On the next "General Hospital" <<
Maxie: You can't see me anymore?
Lucky: I love my wife.
Maxie: That's not what you said when we were in bed together.
Jason: Sam told me about Ric.
Elizabeth: So you felt the need to tell her about us?
Jason: Sam is not going to tell Lucky anything because she's leaving town.
Alexis: They want to operate.
Sam: Are you asking me to stay?
