Colleen: Your daddy wouldn't let me go before the holidays, although I'm sure Emily was pushing him to let me go immediately. She wants to take you away from me and I won't let that happen.
Nikolas: Colleen, I'm sorry. This won't work.
Jax: Hi. Good morning.
Carly: Oh, my gosh! Your hands are freezing.
Jax: Well, snow's coming. You can smell it in the air.
Carly: Says the man who has no gloves? Oh, I know what I'm getting you for Christmas -- stop.
Jax: Come here, I have a better way to keep my hands warm.
Carly: No -- stop.
Jax: That's not so painful, is it? Hmm?
Carly: Uh-uh, no. I guess things could be worse.
Jax: Oh, yeah? You know what?
Jax: I want to take you and the boys to Australia for Christmas.
Carly: We canít.
Skye: I've come to get Lulu.
Sonny: Lulu's not here.
Skye: Oh, Sonny, please don't play games with me. Lorenzo already told me he threatened Lulu. But I swear to you on my baby's life that she is perfectly safe now.
Carly: We're supposed to get married on New Yearís Eve.
Jax: Yes, that's the best plan you've ever had.
Carly: Most women take months to plan a wedding. I have three weeks. I can't go to Australia because I have to plan a ceremony and a reception.
Jax: You won't have to do a thing.
Carly: What do you mean, I don't have to do a thing?
Jax: I hired a team of wedding planners, ok? You just tell them exactly what you want and I'll let them sweat the details.
Carly: But I want it to be perfect. I want to dazzle you. I want to be the bride of your dreams.
Jax: Oh, you'd be the bride of my dreams if you walked down the aisle in those cute little sweat pants that you have with your pink, fuzzy little slippers.
Carly: That's not a very appealing visual.
Jax: Oh, ok. Well, you would be the bride of my dreams if you looked the way you look when you wake up next to me in the morning.
Jax: Huh? How about that one?
Carly: That sounds encouraging.
Jax: Well, I mean every word.
Carly: Well, that's why I want it to perfect; I do. You know, weddings are supposed to be a statement of who we are and what we mean to each other. You are the man that I love and I want to spend the rest of my life with, and I want the whole world to know it.
Jax: Yes, and you also want Sonny to know it.
Epiphany: Mrs. Grishom in 710 is complaining that no one's bothered to do a post-op check on her.
Emily: Oh. I checked on her at 6:18 this morning and again at noon.
Epiphany: Are you calling the woman a liar?
Emily: No, I'd call her lonely. If the nurses would just take a little time to check on her --
Epiphany: Are you criticizing my staff?
Emily: I'm trying to work with you so we can do what's best for the patients.
Epiphany: You know, the only thing that I hate more than a know-it-all intern is an intern who's in love.
Emily: Excuse me?
Epiphany: Don't bother trying to deny it. Your mouth is saying all the right words, but your mind is on Mr. Wonderful. Just don't let it interfere with your work.
Elizabeth: She's right, you know?
Emily: What, it's that obvious?
Elizabeth: You're glowing with happiness. I take it things are going well for you and Nikolas?
Emily: Elizabeth, we had a picnic in the stables and we talked about everything under the sun. We were open and honest, just like we used to be. Then we ended up in each other's arms --
Elizabeth: Ok, too much information, thanks. I'm really glad it's working out for you.
Emily: Hey, so, listen, we're trimming the Christmas tree at Wyndemere this afternoon. Lucky's going to be there. I'd love it if you and Cameron could come.
Elizabeth: Hmm. I know you mean well, but I'm -- I don't know.
Emily: Listen, it's Spencerís first Christmas. No pressure, just fun. Cameron could help decorate.
Elizabeth: That sounds wonderful, but I'm going to pass because I just think it'd be a little awkward.
Emily: Ok, I understand. But, hey, if you change your mind, you're always welcome.
Elizabeth: Thanks. And I'm really happy for you and Nikolas. You know I've been hoping for a long time that the two of you would find your way back together. And now you have.
Nikolas: We're planning to decorate the Christmas tree as a family -- Emily and my brother, as well as his wife and little boy hopefully. So --
Colleen: Oh --
Colleen: Of course. I apologize.
Nikolas: No, just -- you're just taking your usual initiative. Here's your letter of recommendation as well as your severance check. I'm sure you'll have no problem securing another position.
Colleen: Thank you. Um -- I'm sorry for the way I reacted when you first told me you were letting me go. I was caught off-guard because this has never really felt like a job to me. It's been a joy from the very first day. Spencer is a wonderful baby and I'll always feel a special connection to him.
Nikolas: That's kind of you to say.
Colleen: It's the truth.
Alexis: Sweetie, my hair is going to grow back, ok? I'm going to be healthy; my hair's going to be healthy. And then we're going to do all the fun things that we used to do again.
Sam: Hey, Kristina. I have a surprise for you.
Alexis: Kristina? Kristina, stay right there. What are you thinking? What are you doing? Considering the state that she's in, why would you just show up without any warning?
Sam: I didn't just --
Lainey: I asked Sam to meet me here.
Alexis: Well then, Lainey, you should've said something to me first. She's already upset, she saw me with no hair for the first time, and now you want her to relive this shooting?
Sam: I'm sorry. If you want me to disappear from her life or act like I don't care, then --
Alexis: That isn't what I said, Sam. I simply said that you should contact me before you come over.
Sam: Her psychiatrist contacted me.
Alexis: I'm her mother, all right? I need everybody here to be on the same page and do what's right for my daughter.
Lainey: If you want to do what's right, you might start by putting aside your grudge against Sam.
Skye: Lorenzo explained everything to me -- how he's going after a computer tech guy named Spinelli, how Lulu was with this person when they found him, so they took her, too. Lorenzo made a horrible, calculated decision, the kind you make every day.
Sonny: Please, don't compare us. That's --
Skye: He regrets what he tried to do to Lulu.
Sonny: You mean he regrets that it went wrong and you found out?
Skye: He won't do it again.
Sonny: Why are you being so naive, Skye?
Skye: We made a deal, Lorenzo and I. Lila Rae and I are moving in, and in return, he swore that he won't harm Lulu. She's safe now. You can let her go home.
Sonny: Do what you think you have to do, Skye, but you know what? You're fooling yourself about Alcazar. As soon as he finds Lulu, he's going to take her out.
Skye: Lorenzo won't risk losing Lila Rae.
Sonny: Well, he's not going to risk losing his business, either.
Skye: Lulu is safe now, Sonny. Don't use this unfortunate incident to justify going after Lorenzo.
Lulu: Well, that changes things.
Milo: How do you like it, huh?
Max: I was protecting her
Milo: Did you see her face? Lulu was terrified.
Max: You got to be kidding me.
Milo: You do it again and I'll stop you, Max. I mean it.
Sonny: Skye isn't what you call objective about Alcazar.
Lulu: Maybe not, but he wouldn't go after me with Skye and the baby under his roof.
Sonny: Yeah, right. That's why I'm sending you and Jason to look for Spinelli.
Pete: Thank you.
Pete: "Pride and Prejudice."
Georgie: Yeah, yeah. I'm a huge Jane Austen fan. Did that sound trite?
Pete: No, not at all. I mean, there's a reason she's still popular almost two centuries after her death.
Georgie: Well, Elizabeth Bennet is an amazing, amazing heroine.
Pete: Tell me what you like about her.
Georgie: Ok. Well, mostly it's her strength. I mean, obviously, she shows too much pride when she misjudges Mr. Darcy.
Pete: While he shows prejudice against her social standing.
Georgie: Right, but you forgive him later en he realizes he's wrong.
Pete: Oh. So you like Darcy?
Georgie: Well, what woman doesn't? You root for him to rise above the social pressures of his class and admire Elizabeth for who she is.
Pete: All right. So what's your favorite movie version?
Georgie: Movie version? Um -- ok, when we talk about movie version, are we talking about the cutest actor to play Darcy?
Pete: Wait a second -- what? Ok, so much for literary analysis. Cutest actor?
Georgie: Of course. You have to take that into consideration.
Dillon: Wow. You -- you spend this much time with any other of your students, Marquez?
Robin: I'm sorry.
Patrick: What's that?
Robin: I'm sorry. I'm not sorry about what I said about the Hewlitt boy's prognosis. What I am sorry for is dragging our personal relationship into a professional disagreement.
Patrick: Wow, Peteís right.
Robin: Excuse me?
Patrick: One-night stands are much easier.
Robin: Oh. Ok.
Patrick: But I'm more right. Being in a relationship, with all its frustrations and misunderstandings --
Patrick: Is more satisfying. And loving someone, loving you, even though you drive me crazy sometimes, is much more satisfying. It what I've always wanted even though I didn't know it. And now that I do -- love you -- I'm not going to stop.
Lainey: Mmm. I love your tea set, Kristina. It's beautiful.
Alexis: Kristina picked it out all by herself. Didn't you, sweetie?
Sam: Hey, Kristina. You remember that tea party we had with all your stuffed animals? Oh, come on -- you have to remember this one. We gave them all cookies. We ate them all ourselves? You remember?
Lainey: Would you like to pour us some tea?
Alexis: You don't have to, sweetheart. I think that kind of proves my point that Samís presence here is upsetting her.
Lainey: With all due respect, Alexis, at this point, you're a bigger problem than Sam is.
Carly: Yeah, a part of me does want to have a big, splashy wedding just to prove a point to Sonny, sure.
Jax: Which means the wedding will be all about him.
Carly: No. He has been trying to break us up from the beginning. I want him to know that I have a life of my own and that what you and I have is real and forever, whether he likes it or not.
Jax: Do you have to do that by staying here, though?
Carly: To have the wedding I want to have, I have to be here.
Jax: You said you wanted a wedding like Luke and Lauraís, right?
Carly: Yes, I said that, yes.
Jax: They had even less time for the ceremony, to prepare everything, than we do. I mean, mind you, we gave them, you know, all of our preparations, but still, no one's going to remember the flower arrangements or what the bride was wearing. They're going to remember what they said to each other.
Carly: You're right, it was beautiful. And "beautiful" is not a word I associate with my uncle, so --
Jax: Ok. This is our wedding day, ok? This is our day. You really -- you really want to be a slave to all the details, you know? Make yourself crazy worrying about every little thing? We should just, you know, concentrate on each other, even if it's not perfect -- it doesn't matter because the most important thing is we're going to be right here just focusing on each other. That's what's important.
Carly: Well, when you put it that way --
Carly: Ok, ok, ok. Boys, get down here! I want to talk to you.
Michael: What, what, what, what, what?
Carly: Whoa, whoa, wait, wait.
Michael: What's going on?
Carly: Wait for your brother, have a seat. Come on, Morgan.
Carly: Have a seat. Ok. We have some really exciting news.
Morgan: Thank you. Aha.
Carly: Ok, listen to me.
Carly: Jax is taking us all to Australia for Christmas.
Carly: "No"? Uh -- sweetie, you can spend, you know, an early holiday with your dad before we leave.
Michael: Well, we can't go away. Me and Morgan -- we have to find Jesus.
Alexis: I'm sorry. I was under the impression that Kristina was in shock because she saw someone get shot and die.
Lainey: That was the inciting incident, but Kristinaís sustained reaction could be a response to her whole world being uprooted.
Alexis: I'm not following you.
Lainey: In the space of a few weeks, Kristinaís lost Ric, the stepfather who until now has been a permanent fixture. Sam has come and gone. The lesson that Kristina is learning is that no matter how much she loves someone, no matter how attached she is, people can't be trusted to stick around.
Alexis: I'm still here.
Lainey: You've become a virtual stranger.
Alexis: I know that you mean well, but I am going to respectfully disagree. I've tried very hard to remain a constant in her life.
Lainey: I'm not questioning your love and commitment. I'm trying to tell you how it looks to Kristina. You've been absent for long periods. She saw you in a medically induced coma. You're obviously going through a lot of emotional turmoil. And what's even more disconcerting -- you don't look the same. You're pale; you're losing your hair. Chemo does that. And you are Kristinaís mother, but you're not the mother that she knows, and that's terrifying.
Alexis: What would you like me to do? Would you like me to wear a wig and take Ric back?
Michael: We have a Christmas pageant at church on Christmas Eve.
Carly: Ok, so we'll go to a Christmas Eve service in Australia.
Michael: We can't, mom, remember? The teacher gave out parts and he's the drummer boy and I'm Joseph?
Carly: Michael, she gives out parts every year. Next year, she'll give you a part, too.
Michael: Yeah? Well, this year, she's looking for babies to play Jesus and I was hoping Molly could play.
Jax: You know, that's a -- that's a nice idea, Michael, but Alexis has a lot going on right now.
Michael: Then we can ask Emily about Spencer. It'd be better because he's a boy.
Carly: I don't really think that would be such a great idea.
Michael: Mom, we cannot go to Australia.
Carly: Ok, all right, all right, you know what? You guys go back upstairs, finish playing. I'm going to discuss this with Jax and we'll figure something out, ok?
Morgan: All right. I'm bringing the dinosaur.
Michael: Home for Christmas?
Carly: Go upstairs.
Morgan: I'm taking --
Morgan: I did it. It's mine.
Carly: Well, you know, we -- we could tell Michael and Morganís teacher that we're taking them out of town for the holidays.
Jax: You know, they're obviously really excited about this.
Carly: I know they are. But you know what? This just goes to show you that you're right -- it's always about other people and never about us.
Max: Get a grip, ok? Lulu Spencer is off-limits.
Milo: Don't you think I know that?
Max: Uh, in a word, no. She already got around you once. You were guarding her for, what, two minutes? She tricked you and she got out the door? From now on, I'm handling her.
Milo: Yeah -- you don't understand Lulu.
Max: What, and you do? Idiot. Hey. She's Luke Spencerís daughter -- you don't go near her.
Sonny: Skye wants to believe Alcazar's not going to hurt you because it's the only way she can rationalize moving in with the monster.
Lulu: Skye is smart. If Alcazar was lying, she would know.
Sonny: Heís the father of her child.
Lulu: So what? Skye is not one of those women who needs a man to make her life work.
Sonny: Having a child makes a connection between two people. You become vulnerable in a way you -- you never have before.
Georgie: Professor Marquez and I were talking about "Pride and Prejudice," the film and the book adaptations.
Pete: A subject that doesn't hold much interest for a business major.
Dillon: Excuse me. Wow. Um, well, let's see. The -- the latest version, released in 2005, included an epilogue that wasn't in the book, an incongruous, happily-ever-after little number in which the bride and groom are -- are kissing. Now, classics from the likes of Fritz Lang all the way up to modern masterpieces by Scorsese all dictate that audiences enjoy ambiguity and shades of gray. However, Hollywood continues to impose the requisite happy ending.
Pete: Did you figure that out for yourself or are you quoting an article in the arts page of some business journal?
Dillon: You know, assuming that because I'm an econ. major that I don't enjoy film is like assuming that you're a professor because you enjoy literature -- that and all the female undergrads you can hit on.
Pete: If this is an attempt to impress your girlfriend --
Dillon: Stop trying to get into Georgie's pants.
Georgie: Dillon, stop.
Lucky: It's a nice tree.
Nikolas: Thank you.
Lucky: Um -- only one problem. It's leaning towards the fireplace.
Nikolas: Yes, I realize that. Thank you. And I'm not too proud to admit that I need help, so --
Lucky: Oh, yeah? Well, why don't you let the staff do that like you usually do?
Nikolas: Oh -- what, sit back and let everyone else do the work? Where's your holiday spirit, Lucky?
Lucky: It's a good thing you've got me for an uncle.
Nikolas: Oh. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Get over here. I'll hold the tree; you tighten the screws.
Lucky: Well, why did you get into this whole do-it-yourself thing?
Emily: Nikolas, I found the most beautiful decorations for the fireplace.
Emily: You're going to have to look at them.
Lucky: No further questions, your honor.
Nikolas: Let me help you with those. Hi.
Emily: What? Did I miss something?
Lucky: No. It's just good to see the two of you back together.
Nikolas: Thank you.
Emily: So, who's going to help me with the garlands?
Nikolas: I will as soon as I fix that tree.
Lucky: Well, wouldn't you two rather be alone?
Nikolas: No. I told you this was a family occasion.
Lucky: Well, who are you expecting? Grandma, Bobbie, Carly with her kids?
Nikolas: Think smaller.
Emily: I asked Elizabeth to bring Cam, but she decided to stay home.
Lucky: Oh, too bad. We tease her about being bossy, but Elizabeth always knew the best place for putting decorations.
Emily: Yeah, well, we wanted you here, anyway.
Lucky: Well, good because this tree is a fire hazard and it's about to come crashing down on my nephew any minute.
Emily: Yeah, it does look a little bit like the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Nikolas: Ok, ok, let's fix it.
Lucky: Oh, ok. You know what? Give me a second and tell me when you got it right.
Nikolas: I can't tell. Emily, can you --
Nikolas: Can you tell?
Emily: Uh -- I don't know how you guys --
Lucky: Nikolas needs some help. Set him straight.
Emily: Yeah, a little --
Elizabeth: Do you need any help?
Carly: Ok, so, we have really busy lives, obligations at work, and kids to take care of, right?
Carly: So we can either let all the other stuff take over, or we can carve out some time for us. I'm voting for us.
Jax: Yeah, I agree.
Jax: And in that spirit, I propose a compromise.
Carly: We fly the entire church congregation to Australia?
Jax: No. We stay here until the pageant, and then the day after, we all fly to the Bahamas. It's closer than Australia, but it's still nice and warm down there.
Carly: I love that! That is a great idea!
Carly: And I will handle Sonny. You don't have to worry about that.
Jax: Why do we even have to?
Carly: Because Sonny will not compromise. He'll do what Sonny does and he'll make things as hard as possible.
Jax: Yeah, well, if we decide to go, what can he possibly do about it?
Carly: He can tell us that we can't take the boys with us. But you know what? He's not going to get his way, because you and I and the boys -- we're becoming a family, and there's nothing Sonny can do about it.
Jax: Hmm. Hmm.
Lulu: Sonny, I get that Alcazar is dangerous. I know that he was willing to kill me in cold blood when Jason showed up. But he is a practical guy, he loves his kid. It's not worth it to him to kill me now.
Sonny: Is that your best Luke Spencer imitation? The difference is your father knows what he's talking about. You're bluffing and it shows.
Lulu: Sonny, I don't want you to kill Alcazar because of me, ok? Then his baby is going to grow up without a father, and I know what that's like. My dad was AWOL for most of my life --
Sonny: What happens to Alcazar is not your business.
Lulu: But if you retaliate because of me, then it is my --
Sonny: You're a smart kid. You have a good heart. But it's not about you. You got caught up in circumstances that are -- that are beyond your control. You're going to Tennessee to find Spinelli with Jason. I'll take care of everything here.
Lulu: Ok. On one condition.
Sonny: One condition?
Lulu: I need to prove that my mom didn't kill her stepfather. And I will help you with the Spinelli situation. But when I need help, I expect you to return the favor.
Georgie: Professor Marquez and I were just talking.
Dillon: He's hitting on you, Georgie.
Georgie: "Hitting on --" you know, I may not be as savvy and as streetwise as your precious Lulu, but I do know when a guy is hitting on me, and I do know when one's acting like a complete jerk Dillon.
Dillon: Do you think that Marquez has this much one-on-one time with all of his students, Georgie?
Georgie: You are so out of line and, professor, please don't leave because of him.
Pete: No, no, no, no, I have class to teach -- full of female undergrad students --
Pete: So I wouldn't want to miss it.
Dillon: Just calling it like I see it.
Pete: Yeah, well, the way you see it isn't very complimentary towards Georgie. You're assuming she's naive, incapable, and lacking your superior creative talent. Don't buy into it.
Dillon: What a crock.
Georgie: Why would you come in here and rattle off all that stuff about Fritz Lang and Scorsese? Is there some kind of hidden message here that even though you're studying business, you still know more about literature and film than I do?
Dillon: Georgie, he's playing you.
Georgie: Playing me?
Dillon: Why can't you see that? I didn't think you'd be this --
Georgie: What? What? Unimaginative? Incapable? Naive?
Alexis: I can't pretend that I'm not bald and that I'm not going through chemo.
Lainey: Nobody is asking you to lie.
Alexis: Her stepfather doesn't live here anymore, so you're saying that's traumatic for her. I understand that, but what am I supposed to do? Do you want me to act like I still love him?
Lainey: Of course not.
Alexis: And what about Sam? Do you want me to act like there's nothing going on between the two of us there, to show some phony sign of affection? Because I'm telling you my daughter will see right through that.
Sam: I --
Lainey: I -- I'm not telling you to pretend to feel something you donít. But you could soften your attitude a little bit.
Alexis: I'm sure you're right. I'm -- I'm sure you're right. I -- I'm sure that all of these changes have been extremely difficult for Kristina. But honestly, I'm really doing the best that I can. I'm being as loving and as caring as I can, so you need to tell me what else it is that I can do.
Lainey: I think Kristina is reacting to how tightly you're wound. Alexis, I think she's reacting to how much you're fighting to control the circumstances and the people around you.
Alexis: Well, gosh, gee. Sorry about that, guys. I know this is all my fault. I appreciate your insight, Dr. Winters, but truly -- really truly, this isn't doing much good for my daughter.
Sam: Ok, how do I help?
Lainey: Stay consistent with Kristina. Give her the opportunity to open up.
Sam: What about Alexis?
Lainey: If you can find some way to help Alexis make peace with her cancer -- or with you -- that would be a big step in helping your sister.
[Christmas music plays]
Lucky: Can you hook that on for me, Cameron? Yay! You got it! Good job, buddy! You want to put on another one? How about a snowflake? Oh.
Emily: See the way Elizabethís watching Lucky?
Nikolas: Don't -- don't push it.
Nikolas: These things take time.
Emily: I know. I just want them to be as happy as we are.
Lucky: Hey, see that one?
Dillon: Georgie -- Georgie, you're -- you're a dedicated college student -- you always have been -- and you enjoy having the attention of teachers.
Georgie: Yes, Dillon, I like learning, and I think it's great that the professor thought that I was intelligent enough to have a conversation with.
Dillon: Oh, fine, fine. Can we just drop this?
Georgie: No. No, because Marquez was not playing me, Dillon. You were jealous, and not because some professor was supposedly hitting on me.
Dillon: Run that by me.
Georgie: You miss film, Dillon. You miss who you used to be, but you're just too stubborn to admit it --
Dillon: I --
Georgie: And that is not my fault.
Dillon: I have grown up, Georgie. I decided to grow up. If you love me, you would accept that.
Robin: So tell me, what else did Pete say?
Patrick: You don't want to know.
Robin: Well, maybe I do -- unless you agree with him?
Patrick: Ahem. No, not even close.
Robin: Ok, good. Then feel free to enlighten me in the face of what I'm assuming are Peteís misogynistic opinions.
Patrick: See, if I tell you what Pete said, you're going to hate Pete, and Peteís my friend.
Robin: I won't hate him. I promise.
Patrick: He's not a bad guy. He's been a good friend to me. He's just a little immature, and he's -- he's sowing his wild oats, and I think he'll be sowing them indefinitely.
Robin: Ok, and your wild-oat-sowing days are over?
Patrick: Well, that's Peteís fear.
Robin: That's his fear?
Patrick: He says that I'm falling into relationship world, and you're going to make all the rules and just tell me when I break them.
Robin: Oh. That's a problem?
Patrick: That depends on the rules.
Robin: Ok, let's see. Rule number one -- we always give each other the benefit of the doubt. Rule number two -- we're always honest with each other, even if we disagree.
Robin: And rule number three -- walking out is acceptable; giving up is not.
Patrick: I think I'm going to like relationship world.
Lulu: Wow! Nice ride! Don't you think, Milo?
Max: He thinks nothing about anything. Milo doesn't run the show; Jason does. Pop the trunk.
Lulu: So where is the great one?
Max: We came down early. I think you were driving the boss a little crazy.
Milo: Hey -- Lulu's entitled to her opinion.
Lulu: Thank you.
Milo: I -- I packed you a lunch. Egg salad sandwich, some carrot sticks, and a -- a cookie.
Lulu: That is so sweet of you. Oh, my gosh. How can someone as nice as you work with such rude and grouchy people?
Max: Oh, well, Milo here is still learning the ropes.
Lulu: Well, I think he's light-years ahead of you. A man of quiet strength. In fact, I -- I don't even think Jason should be the one taking me to Tennessee. I think it should be you.
Max: Oh --
Carly: Guess what.
Carly: Well, Michael and Morgan are in a church pageant on Christmas Eve, and Michael is going to be Joseph, and Morgan is going to be the little drummer boy.
Sonny: Ha! Great, I'll be there.
Carly: It'd be nice if you'd come over after and hang, you know, the stockings, and I'd like you to come by for Christmas dinner.
Sonny: I was actually thinking of having that here.
Carly: Jax is going to be with us.
Sonny: Well, wouldn't he want to be with his mother and brother, you know?
Carly: No, no. See, he wants to be with the woman he's going to marry and the boys that are going to be his stepchildren.
Sonny: Ok, then Michael and Morgan come here for the week between Christmas and New Yearís Eve.
Carly: Actually -- uh -- we're going to the Bahamas -- Michael and Morgan and me and Jax.
Sonny: Ok, then you and Jax can go ahead, and I'll -- Michael and Morgan can come here.
Carly: They're our children, Sonny, both of ours, and I think we need to do what's best for them.
Sonny: I'm trying to do what's best. What do you mean?
Carly: Then why are you doing this?
Sonny: Because I -- I'm just -- I just want to spend time with my children for Christmas.
Carly: No, you're making this a competition!
Sonny: No, you're -- you're trying to make Jax their father in my place.
[Energetic Christmas music]
Alexis: Things haven't been easy for us at all, have they? Nah. Lots of changes. That's hard sometimes, huh? Sam's not here and Ricís not here, and mommy looks like Benjamin Franklin. What do you think I should do anyway? You think I should wear a wig, or you think maybe I should just wait and let my hair grow back? I'll tell you one thing that isn't going to change at all, my love, and that is how much I love you.
[Knock on door]
Sam: Hey, Kristina. So, guess what -- I have a surprise for you.
Alexis: What kind of surprise?
Sam: Just be patient, wait and see.
Sam: Wait -- you guys were supposed to wait for me.
Jax: Hey, Alex-- oh.
Michael: Eh, no.
Sam: Wait a minute.
Michael: We didn't want to.
Jax: Hey, Kristina. How are you?
Sam: One second --
Michael: You had to do that.
Sam: You're supposed to wait.
Michael: No, we werenít.
Alexis: I don't believe you.
Michael: Eh, you couldnít.
[Christmas music plays]
Emily: We are very talented tree-trimmers, if I do say so myself.
Nikolas: It's your very first Christmas tree, buddy. What do you think?
Lucky: Well, he thinks it's a good thing that his Uncle Lucky stopped by, or we'd have a big mess on the floor.
Colleen: Lovely tree.
Nikolas: Oh, thank you. Yes, we think so, too. Don't we, buddy? Come on.
Colleen: It's time for Spencer to have his bottle.
Emily: You know, why don't you bring the bottle out here and we can just feed Spencer ourselves?
Colleen: Of course.
Nikolas: Let's go look at the tree. Hmm. What do you think? Hey -- hey, look over here at the tree. No? Hey.
Lucky: Is it nap time?
Elizabeth: Yeah. I'd better get him home. Can you put his jacket on for me?
Lucky: Yeah, yeah.
Lucky: Here you go, Cam. Well, thanks for coming over and letting me spend time with him. It means a lot to me. Here you go.
Elizabeth: He's been asking about you.
Lucky: Remember how we stayed up all night last year on Christmas Eve putting his tricycle together? Huh?
Elizabeth: He rides that thing every single day. He really loves it.
Lucky: I know I'm not Cam's dad the way I am to ours, but that'll never change how much I love him.
Elizabeth: Cameron had a lot of fun today -- and so did I. I'm really glad we came. Come on, monkey. You ready to go? Bye, everyone. Can you say "goodbye"?
Nikolas: Ok, bye.
Elizabeth: Can you say "bye"?
Lucky: Elizabeth? Look where you're standing.
Pete: Hello again.
Pete: I left my book behind.
Georgie: Listen, I wanted to say that I'm really sorry about Dillon.
Pete: No, no, no, no. Look, you don't need to apologize for him.
Georgie: He completely misread the situation.
Pete: Look, I don't usually get involved in my students' personal business, but your boyfriend was insulting you, not me.
Georgie: He didn't mean it that way.
Pete: Well, it seems to me that he doesn't respect your ideas or your interests.
Georgie: Dillon was really, really passionate about film his entire life, and then he got a girl pregnant and she had an abortion. It's a really complicated situation, but after that, he decided film was frivolous and switched to business classes.
Pete: Wow. That's quite a switch.
Georgie: Yeah, yeah, it was. I wish you could've met him before -- that was the real Dillon. He was smart and quirky and passionate, and he's just --
Pete: Sounds to me like you could be describing yourself. See, because from what I can see, you're the one who's smart and quirky and passionate.
Lulu: Jason is hurt. He could pass out behind the wheel.
Milo: I'd be happy to drive you.
Max: Can't you see she's working you?
Lulu: I am not working Milo. I just happen to find him a lot more reasonable than Jason.
Max: You're going with Jason because that's what the boss wants. You don't get to decide; he does.
Lulu: Fine. May I please have the keys?
Max: Idiot, why'd you give her the keys?
Milo: I didnít.
Max: Lulu, get out of the car right now.
Lulu: No! If I have to go all the way to Tennessee with Jason, then I'm driving.
Carly: Sonny, no one could ever take your place with your children.
Sonny: Well, Jax is sure trying. He's buying them things, taking them on private jets and on the boats --
Carly: No, don't even bring up the toys and the boys, ok?
Sonny: No, I'm just saying that's what he's doing. What do you want me to say?
Carly: Jax loves Michael and Morgan, but he knows they only have one dad. And I wouldn't want anyone to take your place, ok? My -- Jax is going to be Michael and Morganís stepfather. The beach is fun and they love it, especially since right after we get married on New Yearís Eve, they're going to spend the whole time with you while we're gone on our honeymoon.
Sonny: Ok, well, I'll just give up spending time with my children, that's all.
Carly: No, don't do that, don't do that.
Sonny: No, no.
Carly: Don't -- donít. You're going to see them on Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day.
Sonny: That's not enough -- Christmas Eve, Christmas Day. It's not enough.
Carly: Be honest with me. Just be honest -- you want me here in town so you can get me all wound up and confused about why I'm marrying Jax, ok, but it's not going to work. You can sabotage all you want, but I will still be marrying Jax.
Sonny: No, you wonít. Not now, not on New Yearís eve, not ever. Because when you're at that altar promising to love Jax for the rest of his life, I can guarantee you, you won't go through with it.
>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "General Hospital."
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Noah: You scared my patient out of surgery?
Patrick: You are a doctor. Your job is to heal people, not use them for your own private ethical dilemma.
Alexis: I think it's working!
Lulu: Get in.
Jason: I'm driving.Lulu: No, you're not.
