Patrick: Whatever you're making --

Kelly: Oh!

Patrick: I hope you're making it for me.

Sonny: Oh, hi.

Carly: Hey.

Michael: Oh, hey mom.

Carly: Hi there.

Sonny: Hi, Carly.

Carly: Hi. Um -- I'm going to grab some coffee and get out of here. See you.

Michael: No, donít. Dad made marionberry pancakes. He says they're your favorite.

Sonny: Yep. Why don't you join us? We've got plenty to go around.

Carly: Oh, you're awful generous. I know what you're up to and it's not going to work.

Lucky's voice: "I'm pretty sure you don't want to see me right now. I've made a lot of mistakes and saying I'm sorry won't begin to make up for them. All I can say is I love you, I love Cameron, and I hope by the time I come out of rehab clean and sober, you will trust me to be a father of the child that we made together."

Jason: Elizabeth?

Sam: Are you ok?

Alexis: There's something we need to talk about.

Sonny: You don't have time for breakfast with your family?

Michael: Come on, mom.

Carly: I -- I'd love to have breakfast with my boys.

Sonny: Ok.

Carly: My sons, my children. Yeah.

Michael: Now, I have no idea what a marionberry is.

Carly: Here, let me help you out.

Sonny: I -- I used to --

[Sonny chuckles]

Sonny: That's funny. I used to think it was the mayor of Washington, DC, and your mother set me straight. You see, we -- we went on a -- on a trip once to Oregon.

Carly: Only once because your father and the Great Northwest -- they just don't mix, you know?

Michael: Nah.

Sonny: We got stranded in a cabin in the middle of Willamette Valley, right, just the two of us?

Michael: Yeah, right.

Carly: I'm sure they're not interested in this story in the least.

Michael and Morgan: I am. We are, too.

Sonny: Yeah.

Morgan: I want to hear the whole thing.

Michael: Yeah, we want to hear the whole thing.

Sonny: Yeah.

Michael: Take your time.

Sonny: Would you like some butter?

Jax: Mrs. Corinthos come in yet?

Bartender: No, Mr. Jacks. She called and said she'd be at her place taking care of the workmen. Apparently, the damage from the flood is pretty bad.

Jax: Yeah.

Bartender: She said that you could reach her at her ex-husband's house, and then on her cell. I wasn't sure if you remembered she was staying there.

Jax: Oh, no, thanks, Tim. I -- I remembered. Ric. Everything ok?

Ric: Yeah, there's -- there's something that's come up that you might be able to help us with, an unforeseen complication.

Jax: Sure, anything.

Ric: The doctors have said that we can start chemotherapy.

Jax: Well, that's great.

Ric: Alexis has decided that she doesn't want to put herself through such a debilitating procedure.

Jax: But the chemo could save her life.

Ric: Exactly.

Jax: Oh. I should've seen this coming. You know, Alexis is the most stubborn, controlling person in the world. And of course, she thinks that the chemo is going to leave her helpless.

Ric: Yeah, well, she's going to be a hell of a lot more than helpless. If she doesn't take the chemo, she'll be dead.

Jax: Well, I hope you were a little more tactful when you made that point to Alexis.

Ric: Alexis has decided to take care of this cancer in her own way without chemicals and no matter what the doctors or I or Sam or anybody says seems to make any kind of difference.

Jax: So now it's my turn?

Ric: Look, Jax, you and Alexis have a special relationship -- she actually listens to you. So if you can persuade her to save her own life, I would be very grateful.

Alexis: I've been researching some interesting data on naturopathic cures and it says that detox cleansing and natural supplements are a lot easier on the system and there's a doctor of medicine in -- Chinese medicine actually that has some impressive --

Sam: Why -- why are we having this conversation?

Alexis: Because I've decided against doing the chemo.

Sam: Your cancer is spreading.

Alexis: My cancer has affected two of my lymph nodes but it hasn't metastasized, and I know that Dr. Trent wants me to do the chemo, but I'm choosing to go an alternative route.

Sam: Why don't you choose to try the traditional methods first?

Alexis: I'm not talking about voodoo here, Sam. I'm -- I'm talking about actual viable alternatives that thousands of people --

Sam: Really? I heard the doctors, and chemo could save your life.

Alexis: Or the chemo could make me very weak and compromise my immune system so that if I get pneumonia again, the pneumonia will kill me.

Sam: Cancer could kill you.

Alexis: The surgery was performed. The cancer is gone, so for all intents and purposes, I'm clear.

Sam: You don't know that. How do you know that there are not some cells roaming around inside of you? They said it would take at least six months to kill them off.

Alexis: I know my body and I know that I can't handle the chemo right now, I canít. So whether I have a month or I have a year, I am not going to be put in a state of limbo like I was this week.

Sam: Why does it feel like you're giving up?

Alexis: I'm not giving up. I'm just choosing not to do the chemo and try something else. I may live; I may die, but I'm going to be participating in my own life when I do it, so all I need right now, all I'm asking for right now, is for your support -- you and Ric, I need your support.

Jason: Are you sure you're up for working? You've been dealing with quite a lot.

Elizabeth: I didn't realize you were so old-fashioned. Pregnant women aren't made of glass. They're not going to break.

Jason: Aren't you supposed to be avoiding stress?

Elizabeth: Yes, but lately, my job is the least stressful part of my life.

Jason: Well, that doesn't mean you can't take some time off to rest. Let me help you.

Elizabeth: Jason, God, you're -- you're so -- you're so generous with me, the way you listen to me, the way you let me vent. I hope you know that the night I came over to your house -- it meant a lot to me and I'm just really grateful for our friendship.

Jason: I just want to make your life a little easier, that's all.

Elizabeth: But I need to keep working for my sanity. I need to feel useful because I failed so miserably with Lucky and --

Jason: It's not your fault, Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: Yeah, well, he wrote me this. He swears he's going to get his life back together for the sake of the baby.

Jason: Kids change everything.

Elizabeth: Jason, I'm going to keep this pregnancy quiet right now. I don't want the world to know -- not yet.

Jason: Sure. But why?

Kelly: Careful. It's hot.

Patrick: Thank you so much. This is great.

Kelly: I had no idea you spent the night -- on the couch.

Patrick: Ah. Robin offered me her bed, but --

Kelly: And you turned her down?

Patrick: I didn't want to get her sick. I'm convalescing. Strep throat.

Kelly: Oh. You poor baby. You are a little bit warm.

Patrick: Yeah.

Kelly: You know, I have some really nice eucalyptus cream I could rub on your chest.

[Door opens]

Kelly: It feels so good and --

Robin: Chicken soup!

Kelly: Hi!

Robin: Hi.

Kelly: Not to worry. Patrick's been in good hands.

Robin: I'm sure he has, but you should be careful. He's contagious. I'm not sure if you can handle what he's got.

Ric: I spoke to Alexis last night and I told her she was out of line to blame us for Viola bringing Kristina up here to see her before she woke up.

Sam: I don't need you to defend me, Ric. Why don't you try and convince Alexis into getting chemo instead?

Elizabeth: Well, the fewer people who know and make a fuss about the baby, the more Lucky can focus on his recovery. And even if he gets his life together, I can't save our marriage.

Jason: Well, you'd raise the baby without the father?

Jax: You look better. You working?

Alexis: Research.

Jax: On what?

Alexis: The latest fashion trends in Paris -- what do you think? Before you say one thing, before you argue with me, hear me out.

Jax: That's why I'm here.

Alexis: They let Kristina in here. She stood right by this bed while I was in a coma with a tube hanging out of my mouth, drooling, trying to wake me up, and she couldnít. She's traumatized. I don't ever want her under any circumstances to ever see me like that again.

Jax: You know, Kristina has a lot of people that care about her. Right now, I'm worried about you. Do you really know what it means to refuse the chemotherapy?

Alexis: I don't want to die, Jax -- if that's what you think. I want to live and I want to have hope. When they took out the part of my lung, they got the cancer with it. I understand that there may be some rogue cells running around my body wanting to attach itself to something, but there are other ways to fight it other than the chemo. I -- I've been -- I've been searching this. There's -- there's positive imaging, there's touch therapy. There are at least six different ways that I'd have to go to Canada to get because of the FDA, but don't get me started on that. I'm not going through what I went through again. I'm not. I'm not -- I'm not doing it, so -- I just need your support on this. I need everybody around me to just support my decision, all right?

Jax: Is it my turn to speak?

Michael: Good, huh? I love dad's cooking.

Carly: Yep, he's a keeper. Hmm.

Sonny: So Michael tells me that Jax is going to take everybody out on his boat.

Carly: Yeah, Jax loves his boat -- that's why he gave it to me. He's always thinking up wonderful things to do with the boys -- fun, exciting things, right? That's because he's so good at so many things, like climbing and hiking and fixing things. I bet you he could show daddy a couple of things to do with a hammer, huh?

Michael: Oh, probably.

Sonny: I doubt that. How big did you say his boat is?

Carly: 60 feet.

Michael: That's pretty big.

Carly: Yeah.

Sonny: Yeah?

Carly: Yeah.

Sonny: Yeah, well, my new boat is 80 feet.

Carly: You know, why don't you go upstairs and brush your teeth -- you, too, Morgan, please. Don't forget your spelling homework -- you have to turn that in today.

Michael: I know, I know, I know.

Carly: I'm going to have a word with your father. You want to talk about size? Let's talk about size. What about the size of your big, fat ego?

Robin: Here you go. Here, I'll take that.

Patrick: Ow -- hey, wait. You're not going to feed it to me?

Robin: Oh, no, I don't spoon-feed. I think that's more Kellyís style.

Kelly: I don't mind.

Robin: Just be careful. You don't want to catch strep throat.

Kelly: No problem. Open your mouth. Here comes the airplane.

Robin: Oh, my goodness. You have clearly lost your mind.

[Kelly giggles]

Patrick: Be nice. She's just being a concerned roommate.

Kelly: Thank you, Patrick.

Patrick: You're welcome.

Robin: Ok, ok, ok, two words -- chicken soup. I went through a lot of trouble to buy that.

Patrick: Yeah, she waited in line for, like, three minutes.

Kelly: Wow.

Lainey: Is that Patrick? Is something wrong?

Kelly: Strep throat.

Lainey: Oh, you poor thing. Oh, when was the last time somebody took your temperature?

Kelly: I did -- 100.

Lainey: Aw. Well, that's not too bad.

Patrick: It's actually -- you know what? I'm feeling better by the minute.

Robin: Wow, you take self-indulgence to a whole new level.

Patrick: Hey, I didn't ask for this.† They're volunteering. Thank you.

Robin: I think they're just doing it to annoy me. Don't you have a patient, Lainey?

Lainey: I do. I do. You know, I'm going to bring some magazines back. You're going to be here tonight, right?

Robin: Yes, he's going to be here, and I will also be here.

[Lainey laughs]

Patrick: Thanks, Lainey.

Robin: Bye.

Patrick: It's really good soup.

Robin: You know, I think if he is to survive at all, he should probably learn how to feed himself. And you have a C-section in an hour, don't you?

Kelly: Oh. I better shower. Will you be ok?

Patrick: I think so.

Robin: And to think that I gave up my apartment for them.

Carly: You always make me out to be the bad guy.

Sonny: No, I donít.

Carly: You made me eat your stupid pancakes.

Sonny: Well, I thought you wanted to have breakfast with your kids.

Carly: I do like eating with my kids. I eat every day with my kids. What I don't do is bore them with stories about Oregon and marionberries.

Sonny: You -- you love my pancakes, come on. And there's nothing wrong with reminding our children that we used to have happy times -- unless it stirs up feelings inside of you, and you don't want to get too close because it -- you know what I mean.

Carly: Why were you bringing up that whole thing about your boat being bigger than Jaxís boat?

Sonny: Well, I'm sorry, I was just being honest.

Carly: You know what? I'm sick of this competition between you and Jax. Using the boys, trying to buy their affection -- it's ridiculous.

Sonny: Well, there's no competition because I'm the father. I win.

Carly: Don't think they don't see what's going on, Sonny.

Sonny: Oh, they definitely see what's going on between you and Jax, and frankly, my dear, I don't like it.

Carly: Oh, really? Well, you're not my husband anymore. I can see whoever I want to see.

Sonny: Well, you can do that. That's fine, as long as it doesn't involve my children.

Carly: No, you have to stop this, it's not fair.

Sonny: You know what? You are just imagining things.

Carly: I am not imagining anything and you know it!

Alexis: Ok, go ahead. Speak.

Jax: I'm a businessman. Right? Some would say that I'm successful.

Alexis: Extremely.

Jax: That's because I know business, like life, is all about numbers and statistics. Like, for instance, when I go to buy a company or reorganize one that I already own, I look at the books. Does the product have a proven track record? Can I look at it and go "It's a winner"? Now, the doctors knew that -- that the lobectomy would be your best chance, right? Well, chemo is a proven. So if I were betting on your success, then those are the odds I'd play.

Alexis: But you're gambling with my life.

Jax: You're gambling either way. I just -- I prefer the odds on my side.

Alexis: But that -- that's --

Jax: I know, I know, I know. Maybe I'm wrong, I -- I don't know, Alexis. I know that you're a smart woman. It's your body, maybe you should listen to it. I'll support whatever decision you make. I just have to know that you've thought this all the way through.

Alexis: You are one of the smartest men that I know, and I respect you so much. I respect the way that you -- you lead your life. You find more joy in -- in the little things, and I envy that and I want to be like that. And you have always told me that I should take chances and that I should trust my instincts, so that's what I'm trying to do right now. So I just -- I need you to support me. I need you to support me and encourage me, and that's because what I want is to be able to enjoy every minute of my life for the time that I have left because that, to me, would be my greatest success.

Sam: Hey, how's my mother doing?

Epiphany: Last I checked, Mr. Jacks was with her.

[Phone rings]

Ric: I got to get this.

Elizabeth: Jason?

Jason: It doesn't matter.

Elizabeth: Obviously, from the look on your face, it does matter. Sam is dealing with an awful lot right now. If there was ever a time she needed you --

Jason: I get to the point where I think I'm over it, and then I see them together.

[Pager beeps]

Elizabeth: I'm sorry, I -- I've got to take this.

Jason: I'm fine.

Elizabeth: Ok.

[Jason sighs]

Epiphany: Meet on the roof.

Jason: Excuse me?

Epiphany: Not me. 7:00. By the way, next time, use a carrier pigeon.

[Phone rings]

Jason: Yeah?

Michael: Jason, it's me.

Jason: Hey, buddy. Is something wrong?

Sonny: You've got to stop being so paranoid.

Carly: You need to stop being so controlling.

Michael: You need to get over here right now because mom and dad are having a big problem.

Patrick: If I'd have known I was going to get such good care, I would've moved in weeks ago.

Robin: Nearly normal. You know, I'm beginning to think you're faking it. Yes, you. Look at you -- you're such a little boy right now.

Patrick: It's my Peter Pan complex.

[Robin laughs]

Patrick: It's part of my charm. Come here.

Robin: I don't know. In your condition --

Patrick: My temperature's down; I'm not contagious. I may not be good for much, but I could use a little loving.

Robin: Ok.

Patrick: A little Dr. Scorpio loving.

Robin: Hmm. Hmm. Well, I'm glad you're feeling better.

Patrick: I'm in an apartment full of half-naked women -- of course I'm feeling better.

Robin: So, what now?

Patrick: Well, I was thinking maybe I could get a private room at the Casa de Cute Girls.

Robin: Oh, well, keep calling us girls, that's going to get you far.

Patrick: I don't remember the last time I let a woman take care of me.

Robin: Hmm.

Patrick: Actually, yeah, I do. I was 11. I had the mumps. Strep is a walk in the park compared to the mumps. She stayed home to take care of me.

Robin: Hmm. Your mom?

Patrick: Yeah. Chicken soup and chocolate ice cream -- not together, obviously. When I was a kid I used to love to read. I'd go to the library and get the classics, like six at a time, read them all within a week. There was something wrong with my eyes when I had strep -- I just remember them being really sensitive -- so she would read to me. One after another -- "Moby Dick," "Treasure Island," "Swiss Family Robinson."

Robin: Hmm -- I detect a theme.

Patrick: Yeah, yeah. Man against nature -- the ocean. You know what my favorite was?

Robin: Hmm?

Patrick: "Jaws."

Robin: What? Seriously?

Patrick: Loved it. I read it, like, 12 times.

Robin: Hmm.

Patrick: My mom bought me a paperback, and she brings it home and there's a bunch of pages missing -- right before they're about to go get the shark. So I say to my mom like, "Mom, we have to bring the book back. It has pages missing and she's like "No, it's fine. I remember there's nothing really exciting that happened -- it was a dinner party or something."

Robin: Mm-hmm.

Patrick: So years later, I'm in a bookstore. I go to the paperback section and I grab the book and I go to where it's missing the pages -- sex scene.

[Robin gasps]

Robin: A sex scene?

Patrick: Yeah -- she ripped it out. Not in the movie, just in the book. I guess -- what was it? -- Matt Hooper slept with Chief Brody's wife or something. I guess they had a fling in college. So, anyways, I go home and I completely busted her. She starts laughing -- obviously wrecked me for life.

Robin: Obviously.

Patrick: Obviously. Hmm. You remind me of her sometimes.

Robin: Uh-oh. Reminding a man of his mother? That can never be a good thing.

Patrick: She was beautiful, didn't mind being teased, wouldn't let me get away with anything.

Robin: Hmm.

[Phone rings]

Patrick: Hey -- donít.

Robin: Well, it might be the -- the lab with the test results.

Patrick: Yeah. I know. I just -- I don't want to ruin this.

[Answering machine beeps]

Robin: Ok. I guess if it was an emergency, they would page both of us, so I'll check my voicemail later. For me, waiting was always the worst part. I just had to know.

Patrick: Yeah, but when you do, your life is never the same. What if this is that call -- that I'm HIV positive?

Jax: Dr. Winters. Do you have a moment?

Lainey: Lainey, please. How can I help?

Jax: I'm not sure if you know this, but Alexis and I used to be married.

Lainey: She mentioned it.

Jax: It was an amicable divorce, and we're still very good friends.

Lainey: My conversations with Alexis are subject to doctor/patient confidentiality.

Jax: No, no, I -- I totally understand that. I'm actually glad that she's talking to someone. She needs one objective voice when everyone else, including myself, seems to have an agenda.

Lainey: What agenda would that be?

Jax: I want Alexis to live. Whatever it takes -- whatever operation, whatever treatment, and wherever in the world -- I'll make sure she gets it. I just want her to survive.

Lainey: I see. You want to stage a hospital takeover against the cancer.

Jax: Yeah, yeah, that would be nice. But it's pretty much impossible, isn't it? No matter how much money you throw at it, eventually cancer will kill people.

Lainey: Alexis is a long way from terminal.

Jax: Well, maybe not as far as you think. You know that she's refusing chemo, right?

Lainey: I wasn't aware of that.

Jax: Yeah.

Lainey: Oh.

Jax: I mean, I've told Alexis --

Lainey: Dr. Trent for Dr. Winters.

Jax: I told Alexis that, you know, chemo would be her best chance of fighting the cancer. And I got a -- I got a lecture on alternative medicines. I really think that she's hiding. So how do we make her see reason?

Lainey: Alexis is determined to manage her own illness. If she thinks this is the best choice for her, you might not be able to change her mind.

Jax: Well, I have to do something.

Lainey: Who else does Alexis trust? I know how important her daughters are to her. Obviously we -- you can't tell Kristina that her mother might die if she doesn't get chemo.

Jax: Right.

Lainey: And what about the possibility of Kristinaís father?

Jax: How did I know you were going to say that? Ok. I'll give Sonny a try -- if it means saving Alexis' life.

Sonny: Jax is going to leave you flat. You're not going to know what to do, and then --

Carly: Maybe, maybe not. But if he does, we'll all be ok. You're just upset that I'm moving on with my life and it has nothing to do with you.

Sonny: That's a crock and you know it is.

Carly: It is not a crock!

Sonny: It's not about that.

Carly: It is so about that!

Jason: Ok, what's going on?

Carly: Talk some sense into him!

Sonny: Talk some sense into her! Ok, you know what? Jason -- good. I did the most generous thing I could do. I let her move in here --

Carly: After you flooded my house!

Sonny: Ok, I did not do that.

Carly: Just like you had nothing to do with making Jaxís car break down, huh? I was supposed to go on a very romantic dinner with Jax, but Sonny made sure that Jax was stranded in the middle of nowhere. Deny it. Just go ahead and deny it.

Sonny: Well, yeah, I did that, but that doesn't make --

Carly: He tries to control me! He doesn't want me for himself, but you don't want anyone else to have me, either.

Sonny: Not just "anyone else," just Jax --

Carly: And he's stooping to using the boys to get his way.

Sonny: Ok, Jason, I made her pancakes, ok?

Carly: And you know how much those pancakes mean to me, Sonny!

Jason: Stop -- stop!

Elizabeth: Ow.

Epiphany: You'll live.

Elizabeth: I've been so distracted lately.

Epiphany: Is that supposed to be new information?

[Phone rings]

Elizabeth: Seventh floor. Yes, I can take a message for Dr. Raymond. Ok. Mm-hmm. Bye. †What?

Epiphany: Look, this is probably all my fault. †I had to ask you what was wrong, and you had to tell me.

Elizabeth: And now you're sorry you asked?

Epiphany: I am not a messenger for Jason Morgan and his girlfriend. I am not a priest or a rabbi. I don't care if you have unpaid parking tickets or a thousand X-rated videotapes. And I certainly don't want to hear that you don't know who your baby's daddy is.

Nikolas: You have a moment for me?

Elizabeth: Is everything ok?

Nikolas: I -- I was about to ask you the same thing, but I didn't want to get you in trouble in front of your boss over there.

Elizabeth: Oh, please. When am I not in trouble? What's going on?

Nikolas: Lucky volunteered to go to rehab, so I took him.

Elizabeth: I'm really glad you were there for him.

Nikolas: He'll be in detox for a few days, then he starts a regular schedule of therapy, meetings. You'd be proud of the way he handled himself, Liz, I was. And I really think he can turn his life around, I do. I know that he wants to more than bathing, now that he knows that you're pregnant. He's desperate to be -- to be a part of your child's life, Liz.

Jason: This is very simple -- you either get back together or donít. That's it.

Sonny: I'm trying to keep the mother of my sons from going off the rails because, in case you haven't noticed, Jason, she has a tendency to self-destruct.

Carly: You think I'm self-destructive if I'm with anyone but you.

Jason: Ok, Carly, if he is making you nuts, leave -- you own a hotel.

Sonny: Right.

Carly: If I leave, he wins!

Sonny: Ok, here is the problem. She -- look, she can't be near me, ok, because she gets hot and bothered, she can't control herself, but she can't leave! What does that mean?

Carly: Jax? Hi.

[Sonny groans]

Carly: Do you have any plans? If so, cancel them because we're going out. Yeah, that's right. Pick me up at Sonnyís.

Lainey: I'm all for alternative medicine in conjunction with proven traditional methods.

Alexis: That defeats the purpose.

Lainey: I thought the purpose was to defeat the cancer.

Alexis: There are no guarantees.

Lainey: Are you giving up?

Alexis: No. Just the opposite. I'm trying to find a way to protect my immune system so that the pneumonia doesn't kill me. You should see what I found here. There are a lot of cases where people are in remission without any of the side effects of chemo. I mean, to me, there's just no point in living if I -- if I can't have a quality of life. You think I'm nuts?

Lainey: I think you want some control over your own life, and I can't blame you. I'm just wondering at what price.

[Music plays]

Ric: Scotch, please. Look what we got here -- big-time crime lord walking around like he owns the place. You think you're untouchable, don't you, Alcazar, but you're not.

Lorenzo: Thanks for the warning, Ric. We all know how successful the D.A.'s office has been in this town.

Ric: Well, my town now. I call the shots.

Lorenzo: Well, my friend, I am impressed. It's not smart business to do that here.

Ric: I don't care. I got nothing to lose.

Singer: Fade away

Ric: I say we put our plan into action.

Robin: Hi. Feeling a little better?

Patrick: Yeah, a little bit.

[Robin sighs]

Patrick: Yeah, can I get the -- uh -- HIV test results for patient 3-5-7-6-3, please? Yeah, I'm still here. Right. Right. No, that -- that's it. Thank you.

Robin: Patrick?

Patrick: Still negative.

Robin: Oh. That's good news.

Patrick: God, every time I call, I feel like I'm playing Russian Roulette. Three more months, then I guess we'll know for sure.

Robin: No, no, no, don't think about that right now. Right now you are in the clear, and that's what we have to concentrate on.

Patrick: Ok. We should celebrate.

Robin: Yes, we should. What do you feel like doing?

Patrick: Um -- I don't know -- maybe a little champagne, and we could reenact the pages of "Jaws" that were missing.

Robin: Hmm.

Elizabeth: I want Lucky to beat his addiction, but he has to want to do this for himself.

Nikolas: I know. And I know that he's abused just about every part of your marriage. And it's difficult not to be angry and resentful, but what if -- what if he manages to get through this? What if he -- what if he comes home clean and is committed to staying that way? What if he works the program and looks and acts like the man you married, the man you've loved most of your life? Could you take him back?

Elizabeth: If he gets sober, does that mean he gets, like, a free pass for everything that's happened -

Nikolas: No.

Elizabeth: All the lies and accusations towards me? Because I'm having a really hard time erasing all those memories from my mind.

Nikolas: I know, but that -- that doesn't answer my question. Does the hurt outweigh the good; does it outweigh the commitment you made to each other? Could you take him back, or is it too late?

Alexis: All I can do is look at the facts, listen to my gut, and hope for the best. It's a -- it's a risk that I have to take.

Lainey: Even with two small girls?

Alexis: Say what you want, but Ric loves those girls. He's a good father and he'll provide them with a good home. At the very least, I know that they'll be safe.

Ric: Get ready. Jason's about to make a fatal mistake.

Lorenzo: And how can you be so sure?

Ric: Well, because Sam will do whatever Alexis wants. Jason is going to see us together a lot. He hates the idea of us in the same proximity so much, he'll be spitting venom. All you have to do is present the circumstance for him to wreck himself. If he gets into a car, you blow it up. He walks into a room, you gun him down. I don't care what your methods are, just do it. I trust you.

Lorenzo: Yeah, I'm suddenly thinking this can't work. Jason is too smart to take that bait. And I think you already knew that. Which is why it occurs to me you're trying to set me up.

Sam: Hey.

Jason: Hey.

Sam: I'm so glad you're here.

Jason: What happened?

Sam: Alexis is refusing chemo.

Jason: When did she decide that?

Sam: I don't know. Who knows? She was trying to talk herself out of it last night, and I was trying to give her good reasons to do it. And I was hoping maybe if I give her some time to think about it, she would change her mind.

Son: Well, she say why she doesn't want to have treatment?

Sam: I don't know, Jason. She gave me all kinds of reasons, but none of them made sense. I don't know if I'm just really scared and I'm not hearing what she's actually saying, but I begged her. I begged her to reconsider, but she's too stubborn to listen to me. She won't -- she won't listen to anything I say, so Ric -- he tried, too, and -- Jason? Please understand that I know this is going to be really uncomfortable for both of us. But this isn't about us. This is about my mother and two little girls. Just don't punish me for that, please.

Michael: Is it broken?

Sonny: Uh -- it just says to push this button. I don't know.

Michael: Does it have any batteries?

Sonny: That's the first thing I put in. †Wow.

Carly: Hey. Thank you. So, what's going on here?

Michael: Oh, well, dad just broke the robot.

Carly: Oh.

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: Hmm.

Sonny: You know --

Carly: Can I take a look at that?

Sonny: Yes, you can. You just got to hit that middle button, and then it directs it or something. Don't show me up to the kids.

Michael: I have no idea.

Morgan: I have no idea why, too.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Elizabeth: Things change. My marriage is over.

Nikolas: He needs you, Liz.

Carly: Hey. Thanks for picking me up here. Hi.

Sam: I hate what happened with Ric as much as you do. I want to get past this.

Jason: So do I.

Sam: How?
