Jax: Good morning.
Carly: Oh. Good morning.
Carly: What are you doing?
Max: Well, I'm here to keep the kids away. This is not a sight for innocent eyes.
Alexis: Just a wild guess -- you're not here for a casual visit?
Sonny: When's the last time you saw Ric?
Alexis: Last night. He declared war. It's my war. I'll handle it. It's not your problem.
Sonny: Well, it is, because Ric had Sam arrested last night.
Ric: Morning. Enjoy your night in lockup?
Sam: I want to see Jason.
Ric: Well, as a former employee of the department, you should know when visiting hours are.
Sam: I also know that I get a phone call.
Ric: It would be much smarter to call a lawyer. But then smart was never your strong suit, was it? You're facing some very serious charges here.
Sam: Because I was framed. Oh -- but you already know that, because you're the one who did it.
Ric: Oh. Well, good luck proving that.
Jason: I want -- I want the best lawyer in the state, Bernie. They're probably going to arraign Sam in the morning, and you got to bet that Ric is going to fight against bail. It's fine, I don't care how much it costs, as long as the lawyer is discreet and knows how to win. All right, I'll wait to hear from you.
Elizabeth: What happened?
Jason: Ric had Sam arrested last night.
Elizabeth: For what?
Jason: It doesn't even matter. The charges were all trumped up. It's all about Ric trying to get to me.
Elizabeth: Well, everyone knows there's no love lost between the two of you, but why is he suddenly being so blatant about it?
Jason: He has his reasons. And one of them is -- is you.
Carly: Uh -- my fiancť and I fell asleep on the couch, fully clothed I might add. There's nothing really inappropriate about that, Max.
Max: Hmm. I guess that would be in the eye of the beholder. Those boys see their mother in another man's arms --
Jax: Max --
Max: They're getting --
Jax: Carly and I are getting married. There's nothing wrong with the children --
Jax: Seeing adults in a loving relationship. You know, I doubt that Michael and Morgan will be scarred for life by our public display of affection.
Carly: Yeah, hardly public. We're -- we're in a living room.
Max: All due respect, Mrs. C, but this is Mr. C's living room.
Jax: You know, Max, with all due respect, you've done a fantastic job. You know, protecting Carly and the kids. I, for one, am very grateful to you. But you do not get to have an opinion about our relationship any more than Sonny does, you understand?
Max: This wasn't my idea. The boss decided to punish me, and -- couldn't you just show a little bit more restraint, please?
Carly: We were really tired from trick-or-treating last night. I doubt we're going to make a habit of falling asleep on Sonny's couch. I give you my word.
Jax: Just take the bowl, Max.
Max: I'll be out of here.
Jax: Wow. I thought you were going to land on -- on Max with both feet.
Carly: Oh, no, Max is the best. He's a gentle guy, even though he comes from a very misguided, but sincere place. When my two feet land, it's going to be on Sonny's head.
Carly: My ex is not allowed to police my relationship with my future husband.
Sonny: I'm sure Ric behaved during your marriage, to prove he supposedly loved you.
Alexis: I believe that Ric did love me. He just hates himself more.
Sonny: Trying to take Molly is not an act of love, Alexis.
Alexis: He's filled with demons. Just like you. You should understand that better than anybody. He feels slighted. He lashes out. He does something horrible. He can't handle the guilt, so he punishes me. He justifies taking Molly by thinking that I love Kristina more than Molly -- which is absurd. And anyone that knows me knows I love my children equally.
Sonny: That's what he's counting on. That's why he had Sam arrested last night. She's his bargaining chip.
Alexis: For what?
Sonny: Molly. Tell me the truth, Alexis. Would you trade one daughter for another?
Sam: You want revenge because I regret ever letting you touch me.
Ric: Well, at least you admit you let me.
Sam: And I'll admit it in court, too. Temporary district attorney has sex with his sick wife's daughter, a departmental employee. There must be some kind of sexual harassment suit in there.
Ric: You know, I would almost enjoy watching you humiliate yourself in open court. Because once the jury understands the kind of slut you are that would sleep with her own stepfather, I'm sure they'd be completely unsympathetic to you. But I think ultimately, it's going to be the facts.
Sam: No, the fact is, I am innocent. You are framing me.
Ric: All right. Well, let's look at that for a second. Fact -- Sam McCall had a security pass, and therefore access to evidence in the case against Jason Morgan. Fact -- said evidence disappeared from the PCPD on or about the time that Ms. McCall was at work in the building according to her timecard. Fact -- the evidence was then recovered at Ms. McCallís place of residence with, according to forensics, her fingerprints on it. Your honor, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, Sam McCall is guilty of obstruction of justice, collusion, and evidence tampering. Now, if you asked her, I'm sure she would tell you that it was all done because of love. If you ask me, I'd say that she's just too damn naive for words. And that naivetť is going to land you in prison for a very long time.
Lucky: Actually, today is Elizabethís birthday.
Nikolas: Yes, I know. Emily and I were planning a little something to celebrate.
Lucky: Oh, she'll like that.
Lucky: She's actually the reason why I want to see you. I know what Elizabeth deserves, but I can't manage it on my own.
Nikolas: Hey, I'd offer to help, but you take a big swing at me whenever I do.
Lucky: Well, I'm not afraid to ask, Nikolas. And I need it in a big way. Elizabeth and Cameron are more important to me than my pride.
Jason: I mean, the other night when I nearly killed Ric, he said he wanted you away from my influence. He's very territorial about you.
Elizabeth: You know, when I went to go see him at the hospital after your fight, he said the same thing. That our friendship wasn't in my best interest. But why is he being so protective now? We haven't been married for years.
Jason: Ric knows that we slept together. He knows I could have been your baby's father. That's what set him off. And now his marriage to Alexis -- it's over, so he can turn his attention back to you.
Elizabeth: You know, he's always said how much he regrets our marriage not working out. I just always thought he was being nostalgic.
Jason: No, Ric is way more twisted than that. Arresting Sam, getting revenge on me -- honestly, I think he's trying to punish me for sleeping with you. That -- I'm not -- I'm not trying to scare you, ok? I'm just telling you to be careful and watch out.
Elizabeth: But why is he obsessing now, after all this time?
Jason: I don't know -- maybe he thought that you really loved him back then. I --
Elizabeth: Well, I did. I did. Until I -- until it was shattered by all the lies. And now, he's trying to push himself back into my life. And he's telling me to stay away from you, and he's offering Lucky his job back. What if he holds that over me? What if he threatens to tell Lucky about you and me if I don't do what he wants?
Jason: Well, I -- I think Ric wants you to like him. I mean, I don't think he'd --
Jason: Do you think he would -- he would hurt you?
Elizabeth: Ric -- he can do the most horrendous things in the name of love. Jason, I am barely hanging on here. I -- I can't take it if he goes off the rails.
Jason: Just -- Ric is not going to hurt you. Ok? I promise.
[Camera shutter clicks]
Carly: I'll tell you what. You are not allowed to sic Max on me like some kind of watchdog. It's degrading to him, and I don't like it.
Sonny: I'm -- I'm sorry. I --
Carly: You're sorry? What does that mean?
Sonny: It's not going to happen again.
Carly: What happened? Sonny, what's going on?
Sonny: Ric had Sam arrested for allegedly stealing evidence from the PCPD.
Carly: Why would she go back and work with him? She had to know he'd try and pull something like this.
Sonny: This goes -- yeah, I know that, but this goes way beyond, you know, revenge against Sam. He's banking on Jason to do something crazy; like getting her out or bribing somebody to drop the charges. So that way, he can pop Jason. Sam's just the bait.
Carly: Well, what are you going to do?
Sonny: I'm going to give Ric something that he wants more than revenge.
Carly: He wants nothing more than revenge. Sonny --
Sonny: Ric knows he can't get custody of Molly on his own. I'm in a position to make him an offer.
Alexis: Thanks for coming.
Ric: Well, you said it was important. Have you taken a turn for the worst?
Alexis: Sorry to disappoint you, but I'm feeling much better, thank you.
Ric: For God's sakes, Alexis, all right, I know we have our differences, but I do want you to still beat the cancer.
Alexis: So you contribute to my peace of mind by arresting my daughter?
Ric: Oh, I see. So Sam is suddenly your daughter again? Well, how does she rate on such a high level of forgiveness? Did you suddenly think that what happened between the two of us was my fault, after all?
Alexis: I don't want to talk about the past; I want to talk about Molly. When Molly is old enough to understand that you tried to frame her sister and send her to prison, how do you think she's going to feel?
Ric: What makes you think that I framed Sam? I think what you really need to teach Molly is that if you -- you break the law, you do pay the price. Evidence has disappeared before, and usually when Samís in the vicinity.
Alexis: You don't believe that.
Ric: Oh, come on, Sam is fixated on Jason. She used her job -- the job that you so graciously gave her -- to obstruct justice on his behalf.
Alexis: Are you going to talk to me about fixation?
Ric: I'm just cleaning up the mess that you left behind, sweetie.
Alexis: You set her up. You framed her.
Ric: It's interesting how much you sound like her. Well, I'm going to tell you the same thing that I told her. Good luck proving it.
Jason: Visiting hours have started. I want to see Sam.
Det. Rodriguez: She's in the interrogation room.
Jason: Where's Ric?
Det. Rodriguez: He's out.
Sam: I'm so glad you're here.
Jason: They wouldn't let me in before. Are you -- are you ok?
Sam: I didn't steal anything.
Jason: I know. I know. Ric is framing you and hoping to trap me. I'm going to get you out.
Elizabeth: Oh, baby! What are you doing here?
Audrey: Cameron couldn't let your birthday pass without some celebration.
Emily: Audrey's not kidding. It really was all his idea.
Elizabeth: Guys, what a fun surprise! Thank you!
Emily: It's cozy, but heartfelt.
Elizabeth: Oh, I was kind of hoping nobody would remember. Not that I'm not grateful. I just didn't feel like a party this year.
Mike: Oh, well, you know, this time last year, you were trapped in a train tunnel.
Mike: So simply being above ground is cause for a celebration.
Nikolas: Amen to that.
Mike: You know, in honor of this momentous occasion, Cameron picked out the cake all by himself.
Mike: And wait till you see it.
Elizabeth: You did?
Elizabeth: You did.
Audrey: Oh. Well, Cameron had to have a "Finding Nemo" theme.
Elizabeth: Oh, Nem-- yeah. Well, he knows mommy loves "Nemo."
Elizabeth: And I know he loves birthdays.
Audrey: Ah, looks like everyone on Cameronís guest list is here.
Audrey: Except Lucky, of course.
Jax: Hi. I thought you might want a full report on last night's trick-or-treat adventure.
Alexis: I do. But can we do it later?
Jax: Why, what's wrong?
Alexis: Ric had Sam arrested, and I don't seem to be in any condition to fix that.
Jax: Well, you don't have to worry about Sam. I mean, she's got friends in powerful places. I'll take care of her.
Alexis: Just exactly what he's counting on. That he'll hang her over a cliff, and Sonny and Jason will run to her rescue and he'll drop the hammer on them. It's all a manipulation. He's manipulating everybody.
Jax: You really think he's that clever?
Alexis: I don't know. I didn't think he was capable of doing any of the things that he did, and yet, he -- he did them.
Jax: But you fell in love with Ric. You had his child.
Alexis: Makes you wonder what's wrong with me.
Sonny: Everything Ric is doing was brought on by me.
Carly: No, you don't get to do that. You don't get to blame yourself because Ric is a freak.
Sonny: He should have died years ago when he kidnapped you. As soon as I found out, I should have -- I should have killed him. I didn't know I couldn't stop this vendetta he has against me, so I saved him. Just like I saved him the other night with Ja-- he was -- Jason was pounding his head in, you know what I mean?
Carly: He's your brother.
Sonny: He was going to kill him.
Carly: He's your brother. He's Adela's son. You were doing exactly what you thought your mother would want you to do.
Sonny: But brother or no brother, sometimes you got to say, "Hey, you know, enough's enough." The thing is, sometimes, you know, I -- I look at him and I think about, you know, what if my mother had chosen him instead of me. How different would I be? So I didn't want his death on my conscience. I figured I could -- I could keep him under control. But what I did is, I -- I built up his rage. Now he's the D.A. I don't think I can -- I can stop him anymore.
Carly: Ok. All right, look. So we don't stop him. We slow him down.
Sonny: Ok, first of all -- huh -- it's not going to be "we," ok? Because -- no, no, listen to me. This is -- this is about me. I'm -- this is my deal here. I mean, Sam, probably Jason -- who knows how many other people -- are paying the price for my stupidity.
Carly: You are not stupid. You're honoring your mother, and that's how you live with yourself. You are smarter and stronger than Ric will ever be. And you know what? You drive me crazy, and you're arrogant as hell, but you know how to win. And that's how you're going to beat Ric.
Jason: Ric is going to try to get to you. He doesn't care what it takes, as long as he gets you to react.
Sam: Jason, it doesn't take much with him.
Jason: Don't -- don't let him do it, Sam. You're strong, ok? Just stay cool. I'm getting you the best defense attorney in the state.
Sam: Defense attor-- what, you think this is going to go to trial?
Jason: Hopefully not, but who knows with Ric? I just want you to know that I'm going to get you out of this.
Ric: Time's up. Get out.
Jason: It's been 10 minutes.
Ric: Visitation is up to the D.A.'s discretion. 10 minutes is enough. You know, he's a better liar than I give him credit for. He probably told you everything was going to be all right. He's going to get you out of here, huh? Painting himself as this big hero. You know, stay calm, lay low. Don't worry about anything. But you know what? Where do you think Jason went after he left here?
Sam: To go get my lawyer. He's going to eat you for breakfast.
Ric: Yeah? Or maybe he went to hook up with his new lover.
Elizabeth: Oh. Oh, my goodness.
Audrey: What is it?
Elizabeth: A train?
Audrey: A train!
Elizabeth: You got me a train?
Elizabeth: Thank you, baby.
Audrey: That's very nice.
Elizabeth: I love it.
Audrey: Oh, just what you wanted, right?
Elizabeth: Oh, baby, we're going to make sure it works for mommy.
Audrey: Yes, oh, yes.
Elizabeth: Can you do that, Cam?
Nikolas: Here, I got it.
Elizabeth: Here. Oh.
Mike: This train will go down as a classic.
Elizabeth: Thanks, baby.
Mike: It's beautiful.
Audrey: Oh, yeah. Here we go.
Nikolas: This one's from me.
Emily: Nikolas gives great presents, by the way.
Elizabeth: Oh, a day at the spa, a little slice of heaven. Thank you.
Nikolas: Yeah, you're welcome. I thought you'd appreciate it. There's one more present, from Lucky.
Elizabeth: You guys, I have so much here, really. This is -- this is enough.
Nikolas: He wants to give it to you in person.
Elizabeth: Nikolas, please.
Mike: Oh, cake time.
Mike: Oh, jeez.
Elizabeth: Cake time! Hey, come here, baby.
Audrey: Oh, no, no, no --
Elizabeth: Come here, come here!
Mike: I got to go slower.
Elizabeth: Oh, go slow. They're going to burn out!
Mike: Oh, there you go. Ok, we made it. We made it.
Elizabeth: Oh, wow.
Mike: There you go. Look at that, huh?
Elizabeth: Ready? Can you help me blow it out?
Elizabeth: Ok, ready? One, two, three -- blow.
Mike: Oh --
Nikolas: One more.
Nikolas: Good job.
Audrey: You did it.
Nikolas: Happy birthday. Hey, Cam, come here. Help me cut the cake. Come here, buddy.
Audrey: Let me see --
Audrey: I love it. Why don't we put the cake over here, huh?
Audrey: All right.
Mike: There we go.
Audrey: Yes, yes?
Mike: Now, you've got to show me.
Audrey: All right. Now, which, which --
Mike: Which one is Nemo?
Emily: Elizabeth? Don't be mad at Nikolas. He loves you and he loves his brother.
Elizabeth: I'm just trying to move on with my life.
Emily: I know. Look, we've all talked until we're blue in the face about what it is that Lucky needs. But you're in a lot of pain, too.
Elizabeth: Em, really, I am perfectly --
Emily: No, no, no. Don't tell me that you're fine. I know you and I know when you're unhappy.
Elizabeth: My little boy's life has been completely disrupted. And do you know that every morning when he wakes up, the first thing he does is look for his daddy? It really breaks my heart, and I -- I can't -- I can't take him to see Lucky at a rehab facility.
Emily: Ok. You're furious, all right? You have every right to be. But when is it time to let go of the pain and the anger? You're having Lucky's baby.
Elizabeth: I don't trust him.
Emily: Trust can be regained, all right? When -- when I see how far Nikolas and I have come, I mean, it's slow but we're committed to making this work.
Elizabeth: You guys do seem at ease with each other, and if you're getting back together, I think that's really great.
Emily: We're not together together but, you know, we're making progress, which is more than I ever imagined. But it couldn't happen, Elizabeth, until we put aside the hurt and the anger and we just learned to trust each other as friends again. I mean, it wasn't that long ago that you and Lucky were best friends. Couldn't you at least try to meet him halfway?
Audrey: Oh, that's perfect.
Alexis: I will never, ever regret having Molly. She is a beautiful girl and I adore her and you know what -- so does Ric. And what's -- what's unbelievable is he understands the law. The law is clear and yet he's going to put everybody through hell anyway in order to punish me. He had Sam arrested to get leverage to get his own agenda.
Jax: Do you think there's a chance that Sam might be guilty?
Alexis: Anything is possible. I know that she'd break the law to protect Jason. I know that Jason would do it for her, but it's the smirk on his face, this level of satisfaction that Ric had, that makes me believe he's pulling all the strings.
Jax: Oh. You know, after what they've done to you, they both deserve what they get.
Alexis: As angry as I am at Sam, she doesn't deserve this. He's doing this to try to hurt me, to try to hurt Sonny, to try to hurt Jason. Look, Sam is an -- she's an adult and she made her own mess and she's going to have to clean it up, but Molly -- what did Molly do? She's a sweet, innocent baby and Ric is using her to -- to punish me. He has backed me into a corner between my two daughters and there doesn't seem to be anything that I can do about it.
Jason: Hey, I saw Sam at the station. Ric framed her but I don't -- I don't know how to prove it.
Sonny: You didn't tell Sam, did you?
Jason: No, no, no. She's already scared and Ric will exploit that.
Sonny: You know what our problem is? We're reactive. We -- you know, we wait for Ric to make a move, then we respond. I'm -- I'm tired of that. You know what we're going to do? He's going to play our game by our rules. We'll let him make the mistake --
Sonny: You see?
Jason: That's fine, but we need to do it fast because Ric plays head games, he's got unlimited access to -- you know what? I'm getting her out of there.
Sonny: If you break Sam out, you're going to get arrested and you're probably going to get yourself killed by the time you hit the sidewalk. That is Ricís plan.
Jason: Ok, so what am I supposed to do? How do I help her?
Ric: Jason's been under surveillance for quite some time. These shots were taken of their tryst just before he came to see you. Your hero has been cheating on you, Sam. Although, I'm sure it's not the way he sees it. I mean, after you slept with me, I guess all bets were off.
Sam: What's your point, Ric?
Ric: My point is I got a great deal of pleasure out of busting you, seeing you defend your criminal boyfriend and, you know, being sloppy and careless and everything, but I had no idea that I was actually going to be giving Jason what he wants. He's not sending a lawyer for you, Sam, ok? As a matter of fact, I'm sure he is thrilled that you are in here right now so he can go be with Elizabeth, which is obviously who he wants. I mean, who can blame him? Elizabeth is beautiful. She's kind, she's moral, she's the complete opposite of a slut like you.
Sam: Get the hell out of here or I'm going to have my lawyer -- I'm going to tell them you're harassing me.
Ric: Really? Assuming your lawyer ever shows up. Once you accept the fact that Jason is not bankrolling your defense, the court will be happy to appoint an attorney for you. But it's not going to do you any good because the evidence points to your guilt and you are going to be going where you've been going your whole life, and that's right to prison. Oh!
Det. Rodriguez: Don't make me shoot you, Sam.
Carly: I can't imagine how Adela felt when Ricís father made her choose between her sons. For a mother, that's unthinkable. And then you discover years later the lifelong damage. Whew -- rejection, the gift that just keeps giving.
Jax: Yeah. Well, we learn from our mistakes, right?
Carly: Yeah. You know, I tried to convince Sonny that it wasn't his fault. I even told him that I would help him any way I could, but I have no idea how to help him.
Jax: Did he accept?
Carly: No. No, but I felt myself being pulled back in and it wasn't him manipulating me. It was me falling back into old patterns, so you may want to rethink whether you want to marry me.
Lucky: Happy birthday.
Elizabeth: Thank you.
Lucky: How was the party?
Elizabeth: It was sweet. It was more for Cameron than for me, but it was nice.
Lucky: I'm sorry I wasn't there.
Elizabeth: Well, you haven't lived until you've tried a piece of cake with a fish painted on top.
Lucky: I'm sure Cameron loved it.
Elizabeth: Yeah, it's the happiest I've seen him in weeks.
Lucky: I miss Cameron.
Elizabeth: I know you do. Well, what matters is that you get better.
Lucky: Sorry we weren't able to celebrate our anniversary, but I got you something.
Elizabeth: Oh. Lucky, I wish you hadnít.
Lucky: No, I wanted to.
Elizabeth: It's beautiful, but I can't accept this.
Lucky: Things are changing. My whole focus now is making things right for you and Cameron, and that baby that's coming.
Elizabeth: I just want you to get well.
Lucky: You know, I have something else for you -- it's for your birthday.
Elizabeth: Lucky, this is enough.
Lucky: You know what? It'll never be enough after what I've put you through. Should've done this sooner before I got messed up.
Elizabeth: $300,000? Lucky, where'd you get money like this?
Lucky: It doesn't matter. It's for you. It's for a house, for you and the kids. It's --
Elizabeth: A bracelet is one thing, but I can't accept this.
Jason: Whatever revenge Ric had in mind, finding out about me and Elizabeth kicked it into high gear.
Sonny: I always suspected that Ric had his own motives for marrying Alexis. One was influence over my daughter, and number two, I think Alexis gave Ric credibility for the mess he made with his life. Now, Elizabeth -- that's the real thing. It makes Ric insane to think that she's been with you and that gives him the justification to go after you with a vengeance.
Jason: It was -- it was one night, ok? I'm not with Elizabeth -- one night.
Sonny: Ok, but it was one night for Sam and Ric. Did that make it any different? Do you want him dead any less?
Max: Boss? I just heard from our guy downtown -- Sam escaped.
Sonny: That's not good.
Jason: I'll find her. I'm going to find her, Sonny.
Sonny: Whoa, whoa -- hey, I'll take care of Ric.
Officer: Tell the men to go on the roof. She's trapped. No escape.
Jax: Have you stopped loving me since we woke up this morning?
Carly: I love you even more.
Jax: You still want to marry me?
Carly: That's not the point.
Jax: Do you still want to marry me?
Carly: I want to marry you more than anything.
Jax: Ok. Then let's not make a problem where there --
Carly: There is a problem.
Jax: There isn't one.
Carly: Sonny's a problem.
Jax: No, he's not.
Carly: He always has been a problem. He leads this messy, complicated, emotionally draining life and -- and it takes a lot of maintenance for that, you know?
Jax: You know what they say about when two people get together, right?
Carly: No, I donít.
Jax: It's -- it's never really just the two of them getting together. It's, you know, all the people that we've known and have been involved with, the people that we've loved and the people that have hurt us, the people that we've learned from, people that have left. You know, there's always going to be a Sonny and a Brenda and a Courtney and a Jason.
Carly: Ok, it's getting really crowded here.
Jax: You know, I'm not saying you shouldn't have a relationship with the man who's the father of your children as long as, you know, his problems aren't about us. And as long as I am, like, way up there on your list of priorities, like, I mean, like, way up there -- up, up -- high.
Carly: We can really have this, right? I mean, you and me, we can --
Carly: We can be in love and -- and we can be supportive of each other and not put any unreasonable demands on each other and we can really, really respect each other.
Jax: Right, yeah. It's a little scary, isn't it?
Carly: It's really scary.
Jax: Yeah. Maybe we should just set a date before we change our minds.
Carly: November 16.
Jax: Wow -- really? Any particular reason for that?
Carly: Well, it's far enough away to plan, but close enough not to get all messy with the holidays unless you want to wait until after the first of the year because if you want to wait --
Jax: No. No, no, no. No, no. The sooner, the better. The sooner, the better.
Nikolas: So what's your secret?
Emily: What, I have no secret.
Nikolas: No, come on. There was no way Elizabeth was planning to visit Lucky. Somehow you convinced her.
Emily: Oh, what? I just gave her a mild dose of the truth. And getting past her hurt and anger is only good for her and her children.
Nikolas: Easy to say, not so easy to do.
Emily: Well, sometimes getting a little distance can give you perspective. I learned that with you. When we -- when we were together and struggling, I was completely lost inside the pain. Everything pointed to how we were failing and the mistakes we made. And now, it's different. I can remember so much that was good.
Nikolas: Yeah. Well, the worst part for me was feeling that I failed you.
Emily: Well, we both failed and we slugged through the mud and hurt and now --
Nikolas: And now what?
Emily: And now it's better.
Nikolas: Yes, it is.
Singers: Sick with jealousy
Lucky: I asked Nikolas to loan me the money.
Elizabeth: I know how hard that must've been for you. But, Lucky, I can't let you buy me a house. It's not fair to you. It's like saying we have a future that I can't promise.
Lucky: I know that you're filing for divorce. And I'm not asking to live there with you. But I'm just not ready to give up on us.
Elizabeth: Look, you just need to focus on your recovery. I need to concentrate on my children. I don't know where either one of us will be when the dust settles.
Lucky: Neither do I. I'm hoping that you might forgive me. But if you can't, then I'm just going to get myself right and maybe, eventually, I hope that we can find our way back to each other.
Det. Rodriguez: Yeah, I'm pretty sure your husband -- D.A. Lansing -- framed your daughter. I mean, everything's just worked out too perfectly. There's no way Sam would steal evidence and hide it in her room for us to find. And the evidence itself was bogus. Out of nowhere, we find the computer flash drive filled with incriminating data on the Corinthos organization? I don't think so.
Alexis: It's one thing to know that it's a frame. It's another thing to prove it.
Det. Rodriguez: Well, that's why I'm here. I thought you might know how to stop him.
Alexis: Cruz, you're risking your job by coming here.
Det. Rodriguez: Well, somebody has to. I -- I'm all about busting perps. But I won't help Lansing frame innocent people.
Alexis: I'm glad you came. Don't tell anyone that you were here, don't say anything to anyone. Just keep an eye on him and hopefully he'll slip up. Thanks, Cruz, for coming.
Ric: Hope you're here to tell me where Sam is.
Sonny: I wouldn't know.
Ric: That's ok, we'll get her. I got an A.P.B. out, also informed the feds in case she tries to leave the country. I've also added assault with a deadly weapon to her charges.
Sonny: Is that another frame-up job?
Ric: She hit me with a metal chair.
Sonny: She didn't kill you? Tough break -- would've been interesting to see her charged with your murder.
Ric: What do you want?
Sonny: As usual, you're taking the hard way to get what you want.
Ric: You have no idea what I want.
Sonny: Jason and Sam would be sweet, but what you really want is Molly, and I can make that happen.
Ric: You don't have that much influence over Alexis.
Sonny: All right. What would make Alexis happier than for me to give up my visitation rights?
Ric: What are you suggesting?
Sonny: I give up custody of Kristina if she gives you custody of Molly.
Ric: Oh. She'd never go for that, Sonny.
Sonny: She'll never have to worry about me influencing her precious Kristina.
Ric: Why would you do that?
Sonny: Alexis is a good mother. She'll take excellent care of Kristina, it will get you out of our lives, and you said yourself, right, that Alexis loves Kristina more than Molly.
Ric: What's it going to cost me?
Sonny: All you need to do is call off the search on Sam, drop all the charges against her and you will get your daughter.
[Banging on door]
Sam: Ah! Ok. Help me.
Jason: Ok. Ok.
Sam: Help me. No!
Jason: Ok. I got you. I got you. I won't let go.
>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "General Hospital."
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Luke: She's missing.
Nikolas: Maybe she remembered something.
Luke: That could be a problem.
Ric: I'll call off the search. First, I want you to do something for me.
Officer: Freeze! I said freeze!
