Maxie: Lucky --

Lucky: Maxie --

Maxie: Get my stuff. I'm getting out of here.

Lucky: Okay.

Lucky: Maxie? Maxie, what's wrong?

Maxie: Lucky --

Diego: We need help in here! Doctor!

Lucky: Maxie?

Diego: Come on.

Doctor: What happened?

Lucky: She got up, shortness of breath, and she fell.

Doctor: Does anyone know her history? Previous medical condition?

Lucky: Yeah -- well, yeah -- she had a heart transplant. What's going on?

Doctor: She's in cardiac arrest. Get her back on the bed. Code blue! Code blue in 415!

Doctor: Charge to 200. Clear. Charge to 300. Clear.

Sam: So what now?

Jason: It's like you said. We -- start over.

[Phone rings]

Jason: Hello?

Elizabeth: Jason, is Sam with you?

Jason: Yeah. Okay, yeah, I'll tell her.

Sam: Did something happen with Alexis?

Jason: She's getting worse.

Jax: Carly, it's me. I was on my way to the hotel, but my car mysteriously broke down. So I'm going to be a while. Be there as soon as I can.

Singer: Patience all I got is time let's try not to waste it

Carly: Oh --

Singer: We're aimless

[Knock on door]

Singer: We'd stand fine together

Carly: You're late.

Singer: All our loneliness

Carly: But you win. I'm ready to give this to you now.

Sonny: It's really, really nice. But I just don't think it would go with any of my suits.

Carly: You shouldn't be here.

Sonny: Neither should you.

Elizabeth: This patient is requesting more pain medication.

Doctor: I'll up the dosage.

Elizabeth: Are you sure she needs it? The drugs are highly addictive.

Doctor: Don't tell me how to do my job, Nurse Spencer.

Epiphany: If you have a problem with one of my nurses, deal with me. This patient has been waiting for over an hour.

Elizabeth: Thanks for the save.

Epiphany: Are you in charge of pain medication?

Elizabeth: Well, no, but that patient didn't really --

Epiphany: Those drugs have already ruined your husband and torn up your marriage. Don't let them destroy your career, too.

Elizabeth: You're absolutely right. Thanks for stepping in.

Epiphany: I don't have time to train another nurse, that's all.

Elizabeth: And I might be like this for the next couple weeks until I get that paternity test.

Patrick: Has Alexis' family been notified?

Robin: We've contacted everyone except Ric, who was here, but was called to Washington on business.

Epiphany: The waiver Alexis signed regarding exposure to AIDS will cover this procedure, too.

Robin: Great. She's amazing.

Patrick: Yeah, I'd almost forgotten H.I.V.'s an issue.

Robin: Well, that's a good start. Maybe you're starting to realize that H.I.V. doesn't have to run your life. Hi. I'm glad you both got here at the same time.

Nikolas: Elizabeth just called. What -- what happened?

Robin: Any news on Ric yet?

Elizabeth: I've left enough messages.

Robin: We can't wait much longer.

Nikolas: What -- what's wrong?

Robin: Her lung is collapsed. We have to insert a chest tube and relieve the pressure. It's not that complicated, ordinarily.

Nikolas: What do you mean, ordinarily?

Robin: Well, because she's very weak, because of the cancer and the pneumonia.

Nikolas: Are you saying she may not survive the procedure?

Doctor: Did it occur to either one of you to tell anyone on staff that Ms. Jones is a transplant recipient? The methadone caused a heart arrhythmia which could have killed her. And why aren't you wearing a medical bracelet?

Lucky: Hey, hey, we understand, okay?

Maxie: No, he's right.

Doctor: You're staying here for observation.

Lucky: Hey, I'd like to speak to Maxie alone.

Maxie: It's okay.

Lucky: You really scared me.

Maxie: I'm all right, now that you're here.

Lucky: You could have killed yourself, Maxie.

Maxie: I didn't. Now you realize how much we need each other.

Jason: Hey, is Sonny here?

Max: No.

Jason: Where is he?

Max: I'm not sure.

Jason: Max!

Jason: You want to tell me what's going on here?

Max: No.

Jason: No? Okay, tell me anyway.

Max: I'm following the boss' orders.

Jason: What did he have you do?

Max: Carly wants to hook up with Jax tonight at the Metro Court. Sonny wants to stop it, so he told me to go mess up Jax's car, while he, Sonny, goes after her, Carly. So I did. But then it hit me -- if Sonny and Carly get back together -- which they probably will, because they always do -- I'm going to have to quit.

Jason: Okay, what are you talking about?

Max: I can't stand to be around her.

Jason: I -- I thought you liked her. No? You don't like her? Since when?

Max: Since I'm in love with her.

Sonny: This is nice. Did you set -- you set it up?

Carly: Yes.

Sonny: Oh. Where's the junk food?

Carly: It's not that kind of a dinner.

Sonny: Well, you say how much, you know, Jax respects you and appreciates the way you live your live. I thought there'd be, like, potato chips all over the place.

Carly: Nice try. Did you and the boys eat the pizza you tried to bribe me with?

Sonny: Well, actually, I decided to leave the pizza with Max. And Michael and Morgan -- they -- they're with Leticia. I heard that Jax bought you a 1957 Chevy. Is that -- is that true?

Carly: Yes, and I refused to keep it.

Sonny: Yeah? What's -- it's nice of Michael to give it back, don't you think? But he must have been very disappointed.

Carly: He's fine.

Sonny: Oh.

Carly: He got over it.

Sonny: He did?

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: I also heard that you guys went -- sailing? You and the kids? Is that -- is that right?

Carly: Who told you? Michael or your boys at the docks?

Sonny: You got to be careful about the docks. I told you, there's a lot going on.

Carly: I said I would be careful.

Sonny: Okay.

Carly: I promise you I'll be careful. Goodbye.

Sonny: Right, right. That's nice. Nice earrings. You know, what's the -- I don't know -- what's the hurry?

Carly: Oh, come on! Jax is going to be here any minute, and you know this!

Sonny: Well, he's going to leave any minute, because that's what he does. He's a gambler.

Carly: Because I'm just a big game to him, is that it?

Sonny: Well, you said it, I didn't. Look, Jax -- you want to be with Jax, that's all fine, but I -- I just don't want the kids to be hurt. And I know you don't, either.

Carly: Jax adores Michael and Morgan, and he wants to be a big part of their life, okay?

Sonny: Ah -- he's going to be a big part of whose life? Look, Jax -- Jax is playing you. Let's not forget that he went all the way across the world. He wanted you to follow him, and you did. And my kids were involved. And I know how much you don't -- you know, you don't like to be abandoned. That's all.

Carly: Jax made a mistake, and he's owning it, Sonny, okay?

Sonny: Yeah, I know. He believes in you, he trusts your business decisions, yada, yada, yada, yada, yada --

Carly: He does. He does!

Sonny: He would sell this hotel right from under you if he thought he could make a quick buck. Look, you want -- you want to -- you want to be with Jax, you want to have fun? I don't want to -- I don't have to worry about that. But you -- you want him to give you a lot more than he can, and you refuse to see what's going on.

Carly: I could see perfectly if you would get out of the way.

Sonny: I know how hard you've -- you have fought to get your life back together, okay?

Carly: Just stop, okay?

Sonny: No, no, listen to me. And the kids, you know? They need stability. I just don't want any of you to be hurt.

Carly: You're good.

Sonny: You think I enjoy, you know, chasing you all the way across town?

Carly: Yes. You know why? Because you're bored.

Sonny: Hmm.

Carly: You're bored because you don't have a girlfriend in your life, Jason is running almost the entire business, and you have too much time on your hands.

Sonny: I --

Carly: But you don't want me! You don't want me, but you don't want anyone else to have me. It's unfair, and it's ridiculous.

Sonny: I'm just trying to protect you because I don't want to see you get hurt. Because I know Jax will use you and break your heart.

Jax: I'm not going to break Carly's heart. That would be your specialty.

Jax: You know, I got a really nice new car. It just happened to break down on the way over here. Probably around the time you arrived. A bit of a coincidence.

Carly: You did not do this?

Sonny: I don't know what he's talking about.

Jax: Just had it serviced, too, and it was running perfectly.

Carly: How could you do something so juvenile?

Sonny: Me? Why do you say you think it's me?

Carly: You sabotaged Jax's car!

Sonny: To keep him away from you? Come on, give me a break. I'm not going -- what do you --

Carly: Come on, you have to go. You have to go now.

Sonny: I'm going, but, you know -- you have great instincts. Trust them. Listen to your heart, okay?

Max: Well, the boss was right, you know. When he was going nuts. I want Carly. I love her. You know, I tried to fight it. I even went into therapy. But, you know, Carly is just so -- anyhow, look, I -- I just -- I can't stand thinking of her with that kangaroo, and his yacht and the money and the bling, you know? You know, I get why the boss wants to break them up. But if he does, you know, Carly will move back into the house, she'll be living in the house, I'll be driving her around, and I won't be able to take it. I'm sorry.

Jason: What, for falling in love with Carly?

Max: I -- I didn't mean to, I swear.

Jason: Hey, you know what? Sometimes it happens.

Max: Oh -- what am I going to do?

Jason: Um -- well, you know, Sonny and Carly are what they are. So if they actually get back together --

Max: They'll break up again. They're going to drag us all through it, even the kids. Hey, you're the only one who can stop them. You have to do something.

Maxie: I was scared, but when I saw you here, I knew everything was going to be okay.

Lucky: I'm so sorry about all this.

Maxie: Please -- I should have told the doctor about my heart transplant. I mean, that was my responsibility, not yours. And I should be wearing one of those little bracelets.

Lucky: No, you shouldn't be here. It's all because of me.

Maxie: Lucky, please don't blame yourself. This is my fault. I've made a lot of stupid choices, but now we have a chance to start over.

Lucky: I'm still married to Elizabeth.

Maxie: But you care about me. And you just proved that over again.

Lucky: I never should have let you believe that we had a future.

Maxie: But you're here now, and that's all that really matters.

Lucky: Did you take those pills to get a reaction out of me?

Maxie: Is that what you think?

Lucky: Maxie, you could have killed yourself. You -- you would have died for nothing.

Maxie: Do you really think that what we have is nothing?

Lucky: I'm sorry. You know, I just let things get out of control.

Maxie: Do you care that I almost just died for you? Lucky, I risked everything.

Lucky: I don't love you. And we're never going to be together.

Patrick: I can't proceed until a family member signs a release for a high-risk procedure.

Sam: Could you try and call Ric again, please?

Elizabeth: I've left messages on every number I can find.

Sam: Okay, I know. I just -- I want to be sure he understands how serious this is.

Nikolas: What -- what happens if we delay the surgery?

Patrick: Alexis will suffocate.

Nikolas: But she can also die in surgery, so --

Patrick: Surgery is Alexis' best chance, but we need to get started.

Elizabeth: Okay, Ric's office just called. They say he's stuck in D.C. due to weather, and he's not answering his cell phone.

Robin: That means you're the closest blood relative. We need you to sign this.

Sam: I can't.

Sam: How can I agree to an operation that might kill my mom?

Patrick: Sam, if you don't, your mother will die for sure.

Nikolas: I'll -- I'll do it.

Robin: You made the right choice. Alexis will be in great hands.

Patrick: Thanks.

Nikolas: It's okay.

Sam: Thank you.

Nikolas: You're welcome. I'm glad I could help.

Sam: Look, I know it probably doesn't make any sense to you. I -- I can do 1,000 different crazy things in life, but I just -- I couldn't sign that form.

Nikolas: No, it's -- it's okay. Risking your own life is very different than risking someone else's.

Sam: Yes, it is.

Nikolas: And I don't even want to think about this, Sam. But if Alexis does not survive this procedure, we need to discuss what will happen with her children.

Maxie: Are you serious? You're dumping me 10 minutes after I almost died?

Lucky: You know, when I saw you in that room passed out, I would have done anything --

Maxie: No, that just wasn't a room, Lucky. That was our room. Or was it? Did you just never care at all?

Lucky: When I needed those pills for pain, you helped me, and I should have stopped it there.

Maxie: But you didn't. You said that you needed me and that I understood you.

Lucky: Listen, I --

Maxie: Was that all a lie?

Lucky: I took advantage of your feelings for me. I let you believe that we were having this great romance.

Maxie: No. We just had sex in a cheap room so I would get you drugs.

Lucky: You deserve more.

Maxie: What do you want me to do? You just want me to go away?

Lucky: No, I just want you to get on with your life. Forget we ever happened. I hurt you, destroyed my own marriage --

Maxie: No, I hope you don't expect me to feel sorry for you.

Lucky: No, not at all. I just -- I just want to be honest, finally. I did use you. And I'll always regret it.

Maxie: Please stop. Okay? Stop trying to be all noble and heroic. That's as phony as your medal of valor. You're a liar and a user. And I was an idiot to ever care about you. And someday, you're going to be sorry.

Carly: So I have all of your favorites here.

Jax: Oh. Sonny upset you, didn't he?

Carly: He's just bored and trying to control me. It'll pass.

Jax: Do you want to tell me what he said?

Carly: Ah. That I should follow my instincts.

Jax: Well, which implies that your instincts should tell you to run away from me. Right?

Carly: I'm sorry. I shouldn't let Sonny get to me.

Jax: You don't have to apologize about how you're feeling. Not when you're with me. You know, it's ironic. I ran to Africa to try to escape. You ran to Africa to bring me home. But the obstacle remains the same. Sonny.

Sonny: What the hell's going on?

Jason: He's having a bad night.

Sonny: Oh, he gets to drink scotch, but I don't?

Jason: Hey. Sonny and I need to discuss a few things, okay?

Sonny: You want to tell me what's going on?

Jason: Well, he's having -- he had a little trouble with your assignment.

Sonny: Trouble? He got the job done.

Jason: Come on. Sabotaging Jax's car is not going to keep him away from Carly.

Sonny: Okay, Jason, I don't want to hear that we make our own decisions --

Jason: Okay.

Sonny: Unless you want her to be with Jax.

Jason: I have learned my lesson the hard way. I'm not going to tell anyone who to be with again. But I know Carly, you know Carly. You tell her what to do, she's going to do the exact opposite, Sonny.

Sonny: Not this time.

Jason: "Not this time"?

Sonny: No, not this time.

Jason: You keep fighting, you're going to push her right into Jax's arms. You know that.

Sonny: Okay, you're not listening. Carly cannot be with Jax.

Jason: Why?

Lucky: I know I've treated you like dirt, Maxie, and I'm sorry. I can't change what's already happened, but I'll never come to you for pills again.

Maxie: I've heard that one before.

Lucky: No, I mean it this time.

Maxie: Really? Then where are you going to get them?

Lucky: I may not even need any.

Maxie: Right.

Lucky: Yeah. Look, I'm on a regular schedule. I needed a little for a while, but I'm tapering off.

Maxie: Do you even know when you're lying? You are lying right now, just like you lied when you said I was the only person who understood you.

Lucky: You are -- you were.

Maxie: Or when you lied when you said that you were going to leave your wife for me and we were going to move in together.

Lucky: That was the drugs, and I feel terrible.

Maxie: Just admit it, Lucky. Admit it. You're a liar and a user, and you will do or say anything or hurt anyone as long as you could get what you want. And I feel so stupid that I helped you. And I feel stupid that I fell in love with you.

Diego: Why don't you just leave her alone, Lucky? You've done enough.

Lucky: I'm so sorry about everything.

Diego: Just get the hell out of here, man.

Maxie: I thought he loved me, I really did.

Lucky: Excuse me, doctor? You were -- you were great in there with Maxie. You saved her life and I'm sorry I didn't give you all the information.

Doctor: Yeah, well, a heart transplant is a pretty important detail to forget.

Lucky: Well, I'm a little fried, working a lot of double shifts. You can probably identify with that. Oh, you know what? I don't have a lot of time, but I was injured on the job a few months ago and --

Doctor: Wait, wait, wait. I thought I recognized you. You're that hero cop, aren't you? You shot the guy with all those tattoos.

Lucky: Yeah, Manny Ruiz, that's right. That's how I hurt my back, actually -- in a confrontation a few months ago.

Doctor: Are you in pain now?

Lucky: Well, I haven't had the time to call my regular doctor, but since I'm here, do you think someone could check me out and maybe give me some -- something for the pain?

Jax: So it all boils down to trust, doesn't it?

Carly: Yeah, it does. You know, I used to think that I destroyed everything I touched and if I caused enough chaos and drama, I didn't have to think about the things that really scared me. I never had to think about trust at all.

Jax: Why do you think I love games so much?

Carly: I want to trust you.

Jax: Well, I don't mind waiting, especially if it involves good wine.

[Glasses clink]

Jax: You know, whatever happens between us, don't let Sonny undermine your progress. You know, don't let him pull you back into that old familiar pattern.

Carly: I got it.

Jax: What?

Carly: I got a plan.

Jax: Oh, no, no. I've heard about your plans, you know? Um -- people end up in jail.

Carly: Not this time.

Jax: What are you going to do?

Carly: I'm going to make sure that Sonny doesn't bother us for the rest of the night and I can do that by making one phone call.

Sonny: Ok, I'll tell you why. Jax is superficial.

Jason: Uh-huh.

Sonny: Right? We all know that. All he cares about is money. But he can still hurt Carly -- and this is the important part -- and that means he can hurt my kids.

Jason: Okay, but she's going to make her own choices. You know that. It's her life.

Sonny: Yeah, and I'm going to make my choice -- I choose to stop this nonsense. Okay, you're going to -- now you're going to look at me.

Jason: Well --

Sonny: You're going to turn away, walk away, whatever you're going to do. I know what you're thinking -- that I'm going to fall in love with Carly again, we're going to get back together and all that, but you know what? That's not going to happen. I know better than anybody, we cannot be together.

Jason: Then why can't you just leave this alone?

[Phone rings]

Jason: Yeah?

Elizabeth: Jason?

Jason: Are you -- are you okay?

Elizabeth: It's Alexis. She's in surgery and she might not live through the night. I think Sam needs you.

Nikolas: I still believe there's something that you're not telling me. But I've thought through our conversation and I'm starting to share your concerns about Ric. You're right -- he's probably not the best person to bring up Kristina, but I don't want to keep her away from Molly.

Sam: Okay, well, then would you be willing to raise both Kristina and Molly?

Nikolas: Look, I would never take any child away from their father, especially with what I went through with Spencer. But I would like to suggest a compromise.

Sam: All right. I'm listening.

Nikolas: Okay, what if -- what if the girls were to stay with you, okay? Just -- I believe that's what Alexis would want, and maybe we could negotiate some sort of custody agreement between Ric and Sonny, and that way the girls would have the best of both worlds.

Sam: Okay. It's -- it's an interesting idea.

Nikolas: Well, it's -- it's a choice that you unfortunately may have to make very soon. And I know I don't have to tell you how much children will change your life. I mean, I -- I certainly didn't know how much until Spencer came into mine.

Sam: I would do absolutely anything for Kristina and Molly.

Nikolas: I know. But Alexis has made her wishes very clear, and I happen to agree with her. If you choose to be the guardian of Kristina and Molly, you'll have to end your relationship with Jason. 

Emily: Alfred told me you might be here.

Nikolas: Matchmaking from his hospital bed, is he?

Emily: He's concerned about you. I have no idea how he found out that Alexis is in surgery.

Nikolas: How's the surgery going?

Emily: Um -- there's no word yet.

Nikolas: So are you still on report for missing that page?

Emily: Yes, but I'm off-duty and I have my pager right here.

Nikolas: Hmm. Have you figured out yet how it got turned off?

Emily: I have a theory, but we'll deal with that later. Right now, all I want is just to stay with you.

Elizabeth: Sam just froze. She couldn't sign the forms, so Nikolas had to sign it for her.

Jason: Do you know how the surgery's going?

Elizabeth: Well, it's a fairly straightforward procedure, but I'm a little nervous it's taking so long.

Jason: Okay. Do you know where Sam is?

Elizabeth: She was just here and then she left. I have no idea where she is now.

Sonny: What are you doing here? Is this about Alexis?

Lainey: No.

Sonny: Who called you?

Lainey: Carly.

Sonny: Oh, Carly called you to come over here tonight?

Lainey: She's very concerned.

Sonny: Well, she's playing mattress tag with Jax, so she doesn't want me to walk in on them, you know.

Lainey: Carly's trying to set some boundaries.

Sonny: You -- okay, you got to be kidding me. You know she's using you, Lainey.

Lainey: She's trying to help both of you through this transition, Sonny.

Sonny: No, no, here's what's going on, okay? She's getting in way too deep with Jax, I called her on it, she got defensive, so now she's trying to turn this thing on me like it's my problem.

Michael: Dad --

Sonny: Hey.

Michael: You have to see it! There's water everywhere.

Leticia: A pipe broke in the kitchen.

Michael: The whole house is flooding.

Leticia: Carly isn't answering her cell. We can't stay at her house. There's water gushing through the walls.

Sonny: I think I know how to handle this.

[Slow music plays]

Jax: Tell me something.

Carly: Anything.

Jax: When you swore to keep Sonny away tonight, who did you call?

Carly: Why are you asking? Don't you trust me?

Jax: Touché.

Carly: You know, we could keep doing this. We could keep going back and forth, deciding not to trust each other, or like when I was a kid in Florida, climbing to the top of the high dive, you just keep climbing, you don't think about where you are in that space. You just keep going and you don't look down 'til you're on the diving board, and then you hold your breath, then you take a leap of faith.

Singer: You touch your skin

Carly: This is me leaping.

Jax: And this is me, standing right beside you.

Singer: I can't take it I know how you want to feel tonight

Sonny: Did you sabotage Carly's pipes?

Max: Was I supposed to?

Sonny: No, I mean, but if you did --

Max: You said the car. I did the car.

Sonny: Yeah, I know. I did. So it's legit -- thank you. Pipes are leaking. Um -- Carly's house is flooded.

Max: Oh. I'll call somebody to fix it right away.

Sonny: No, no, no. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Just go to -- just go to Carly's hotel and -- and just tell her that her house is flooded.

Max: Carly's with Jax.

Sonny: Exactly.

Max: Can I send Milo?

Sonny: No, no. I'd go myself, but she doesn't listen to me and she thinks I'm trying to get between her and Jax and, you know --

Max: Aren't you? Ahem.

Sonny: Shut up. Let's go.

Max: Boss?

Maxie: You must think I'm the dumbest, most pathetic fool who ever lived.

Diego: To not wear the bracelet about the heart thing -- yeah.

Maxie: Actually, I was talking about Lucky.

Diego: Yeah, no -- look, we -- we all get a little stupid sometimes when it comes to love.

Maxie: Yeah, but Georgie told me not to let Lucky use me, and she was right. You know what? I'm feeling kind of tired.

Diego: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah. Sure.

Maxie: Thanks for sticking around. I really don't know why you're being so nice to me after I've given you so much grief.

Diego: Come to think of it, neither do I.

Maxie: Well, thanks anyway.

Diego: Well, you're welcome.

Maxie: Commissioner Scorpio, please. Yeah, could you tell him his daughter's calling? Dad? I really need your help. I'm in so much trouble.

[Carly giggles]

[Carly and Jax laugh]

[Max sighs]

[Jax sighs]

Carly: Did you hear that?

Jax: No.

Carly: No.

Jax: I didn't hear a thing.

Carly: Uh-uh, no.

Max: Mrs. C., are you in there?

Jax: You got to be kidding.

Carly: Max? Are my kids okay?

Max: Yeah, yeah, yeah, but that's not why I'm here.

Carly: Great! Then go away.

Jax: Yeah, thanks for --

Max: No, no, it's an emergency.

Jax: It's an emergency.

Carly: "Emergency."

Jax: Oh.

Carly: Did Sonny send you?

Max: Yeah, but it -- I'm not here for -- for that. I'm just --

Carly: Did you mess with Jax's car?

Max: Yes, but I --

Carly: How could you do that to me, Max?

Max: Look, a pipe broke in your kitchen, okay? It's flooding --

Carly: Oh, really? So I'm supposed to leave Jax and run off in a panic with you?

Max: Yes, that would be good.

Carly: Right. I'm not going anywhere, okay, because this is another one of Sonny's games and I'm not falling for it. There is no chance that my house is flooding.

Lainey: How's school?

Michael: Fine.

Lainey: Do you like your classes?

Michael: Yeah. Are you sure you don't want a cup of coffee or maybe a soda?

Lainey: Oh, no. No, thank you. May I ask you guys a question?

Morgan: Yes.

Michael: Sure.

Lainey: How do you like living at your mom's house?

Michael: Fine. She has a cool house, but not as cool as this one.

Lainey: Mm-hmm. And you understand that nobody will ever try to replace your father.

Michael: You mean Jax?

Morgan: Hmm.

Michael: He's nice but Mom shouldn't date him.

Lainey: Why not?

Michael: Well, she belongs with Dad.

Lainey: Did your father tell you that?

Michael: He didn't have to. Mom and Dad really love each other. Sooner or later, Dad's going to get Jax out of the way.

[Door opens]

Sonny: Hey. What happened? You all right? Want a glass of water?

Lainey: Do you have scotch?

Sonny: Did I miss something? I don't know.

Michael: Dad, what if Mom's house floods?

Sonny: Well, then you're going to stay here.

Michael: Mom, too?

Sonny: Yeah, yeah, Mom, too.

Nikolas: Alexis was the most consistent female presence in my life. I knew I could always call her and depend on her. Now I need to step up so she can depend on me.

Emily: That can be difficult.

Nikolas: Why do we never realize how much we love someone until it's almost too late?

Elizabeth: Lucky, I am working. Please don't bother me.

Lucky: I'm still your husband. I still get to speak to you.

Elizabeth: I told you if you ever touched those pills again, I would leave you.

Lucky: I am not an addict.

Elizabeth: I'm not going to argue with you.

Lucky: I saw a doctor at Mercy Hospital. He checked me out and he agreed that I have back problems. He -- he even gave me a prescription.

Elizabeth: Does he know you've been taking those pills for months?

Lucky: He didn't ask.

Elizabeth: Oh, so he doesn't know you're addicted?

Lucky: Because I'm not. He -- he examined me. And if -- if there was a problem, he would've picked it up.

Elizabeth: You will always have an excuse to get those pills, won't you?

Lucky: You're the one that keeps using the pills as an excuse. So what's the real reason you want to end our marriage?

Sam: What are you doing here?

Jason: Elizabeth called and she said Alexis had to go in for emergency surgery.

Sam: I guess I should be grateful she called you.

Jason: Do you want me to go?

Sam: I want everything to be different, Jason. I want never to have slept with Ric. I want you never to have slept with Elizabeth. Maybe -- maybe I'm wrong about this whole -- maybe it's actually easier this way.

Jason: What do -- what do you mean? I don't understand.

Sam: If Alexis dies, Nikolas wants me to be Kristina and Molly's guardian.

Jason: Is that even -- is that even possible?

Sam: I have no idea. Sonny might agree to it. Nikolas thinks he could pressure Ric into giving up Molly.

Jason: I doubt that's going to happen.

Sam: Come on, Jason. Nikolas has an unlimited amount of money. Ric has so many secrets he doesn't want exposed. But he will only agree to the arrangement if I agree to stay away from you, so I told him I would.

[Music plays]

Jason: Then I understand.

[Sam sighs]

Sam: Do you care? Do you care enough to fight for me?

Jason: Do you want me to fight when Alexis could be dying? I mean, all you've been telling me is how these two little girls need you. Do you want me to try and take you away from those two little girls right now? I want to start over. I want to try to get past what happened, but how can I promise you a future when I don't even know if I can deliver?

Sam: This is what I meant about maybe this being easier because you can't make any promises, I obviously can't make you --

Jason: Just --

Sam: Jason?

Jason: We both know what went wrong between us.

Singer: Do I need to be invisible to just survive?

Jason: It's ugly and it hurts. And I don't even know if I can get past it.

Singer: Try so hard to quiet

Jason: But for the first time in my life, I am willing to try.

Singer: And leave me wondering baby, it's just you and me

>> On the next "General Hospital" <<

Maxie: A lot's been going on you don't know about.

Elizabeth: Leave me alone.

Lucky: You've got to listen to me.

Nikolas: Get your hands off her.

Carly: There's no water damage to my house.

Jax: Have a good night.

Jason: I hoped that we could try it again. I miss you.
