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. Bye.
Nikolas: Ok, bye.
Elizabeth: Say "bye"?
Lucky: Elizabeth? Look where you're standing. I'm sorry, I know it's too soon for you now.
Noah: Hey, nice work on Mr. Tate in Room 722, by the way.
Patrick: That's a brain lesion; that's your patient.
Noah: Actually, right now, he's nobody's patient. You scared him so bad about post-op blindness that he checked out of the hospital, canceled the --
Robin: Patrick didn't talk to Mr. Tate. I did.
Sam: Wait. You guys were supposed to wait for me.
Jax: Hey, Alex-- oh, here.
Michael: Eh, no.
Sam: Wait a minute.
Michael: We didn't want to.
Jax: Hey, Kristina. How are you?
Michael: No, we werenít.
Alexis: You guys, I don't believe this.
Michael: Let's move, let's move, let's move.
Alexis: Look at you. This is the best medicine that I've ever had. Thank you.
Jax: You know what? I think somebody agrees.
Jason: All right, tell Sonny I'm driving straight through, I'll call him when I get to Oakfield. Give me the keys.
Max: I'm sorry.
Jason: Ok, you know what, Max? Whatever it is, it can wait, ok? I need the keys. I need to go.
Max: She took them.
Jason: Come on.
Lulu: We're wasting time. Get in.
Jason: No, I'm driving.
Lulu: No, you're not.
[Lulu locks door]
Jason: Come on, open the door.
Lulu: No, you come around and I'll open the passenger door.
Jason: Listen, what --
Max: Hey, can you give Jason a break? His leg hurts where he got shot.
Lulu: What? I'm sorry. I can't hear you.
Max: He's only trying to help you.
Lulu: I -- I don't know.
Milo: If you could roll down the window just a little bit? Ok. Thank you. See? Lulu's just --
Jason: "See" what, Milo? Ok, I'll take -- fine. That's enough. I'll take care of it from here. Ok, listen, you agreed to help. This is not helping anything.
Lulu: I agreed to a trade of services -- I help you find Spinelli, and Sonny helps prove that my mom didn't kill Rick Webber.
Jason: Ok, was driving part of that deal?
Lulu: Well, now it is.
Jason: Ok, well, if Alcazar finds Spinelli first, he's going to kill him. Is that what you want?
Lulu: Spinelli knew who he was working for, so --
Jason: Oh. So do you know how to get to Oakfield? You don't even know where you're going.
Lulu: Can you say "G.P.S."?
Jason: Can you say "There is no G.P.S. because it's easy to track"? You're going to have to actually read -- a map -- and watch for a tail, ok? If you mess up, we're going to get caught or we're going to get killed. But that's up to you. That's fine.
Lulu: All right -- oh -- sorry.
Sam: Hey, Kristina? I got a wig that looks just like your dolly. You want to be part of the fun, make mommy feel better?
Alexis: Maybe we shouldn't push it.
Sam: Here, ok? I'm sorry. I thought it was worth a try.
Alexis: Thanks. I -- I appreciate it, all of you, really.
Jax: Actually, there is an ulterior motive. Michael wants to borrow your youngest daughter.
Michael: Uh -- yeah. We're kind of having a Christmas pageant at school, and I was hoping that Molly could play Baby Jesus.
Alexis: Hmm -- she's a girl.
Michael: Well, if she's covered up in Jesus' stuff all the time, no one will notice.
Jax: Michael's playing Joseph and -- and Morgan is the drummer boy, so --
Alexis: I think we need to keep things as normal as possible around here. I think I need to keep Molly put here, if that's ok, but I have an idea. What about calling Nikolas and -- and seeing if Spencer can do it?
Michael: Hmm -- I'll see what I can do. Oh, and one more thing -- Morgan has a present for Kristina.
Michael: Get it out. Oh -- he ruined it.
Alexis: Oh, no.
Sam: Oh, no, no. Here, give me. Oh, no, this isn't ruined at all. It's just a little bit crinkled, but it's still very nice and shiny. And you know what? It doesn't -- it doesn't matter what a star looks like. It's the wish you make that counts.
Jax: And you're wishing for Kristina to get better, aren't you?
Alexis: I think it's working.
Noah: You know, if you're trying to cover for Patrick, you don't have to. He's already scared the patient off.
Robin: I'm not covering for him. I was the one that explained the risks to Mr. Tate.
Patrick: I don't think you two have met. Dr. Noah Drake, this is "dark and deconstructive" Dr. Robin Scorpio with her new theory -- not only is the glass half empty, it's evaporating so quickly we're all going to die of thirst.
Noah: You scared my patient out of surgery?
Robin: I told Mr. Tate the truth. He's an artist; he's a painter. Color and light mean everything to him. He has the right to know that if his lesion is removed, he might not ever see again.
Noah: Every surgical procedure carries risks. You know this like everybody else. Look at the risks I warned you about with Jasonís surgery. I was dead set against that surgery, but you stayed optimistic and you found yourself a great surgeon.
Patrick: And, as we know, the rest is history.
Noah: So what changed?
Robin: I developed a new respect for the truth.
Patrick: But only if it's negative.
Robin: No, there is a difference between giving a patient hope and telling a flat-out lie just to justify a procedure.
Noah: Excuse me?
Robin: I'm sorry, that probably was not what you were doing. But a lie of omission is still a lie.
Patrick: You thought I was arrogant?
Noah: Yeah -- the narcissism, tunnel vision, a fatalistic view. If I didn't know better, I'd say you were on a dry drunk -- that's my department. This is something a little bit worse.
[Christmas music plays]
Lucky: I got a little carried away because Emily and Nikolas are starting over -- like we wanted them to, remember? Anyhow, I know we have a long way to go.
Emily: Hey, Lucky? Nikolas could use a hand over there, if you don't mind?
Lucky: Yeah, sure, no problem.
Emily: Ok, thanks.
Elizabeth: Thanks for the save.
Emily: Yeah, no problem.
Elizabeth: I think Lucky just got caught up in the spirit of things.
Emily: Well, he's feeling stronger. I think he's looking forward to the baby.
Elizabeth: And speaking of babies, I've got to get this little one home to Gram's. I took another shift tonight.
Emily: You did?
Elizabeth: Yeah, I signed up for it and I almost forgot, so I got to go.
Emily: Oh -- hey, listen, do you mind if I go to the hospital with you? I have to pick up a file. I'll just go to the launch with you. Is that all right?
Elizabeth: Uh -- yeah. Yeah, it's fine.
Emily: Ok. Hey, Nikolas, I'm going to go to the hospital just for a second, but I will be right back, ok?
Nikolas: Ok, ok. We'll be here.
Emily: Ok. Bye.
Nikolas: Come on, buddy. Ooh!
Lucky: Bye. See you later.
Elizabeth: Bye. Say "goodbye"?
Lucky: Well, Spencer, let's just hope you're a lot smoother with women than your uncle.
Nikolas: You said it, I didnít.
Colleen: I'm sorry to interrupt, but you asked me to bring Spencerís bottle in here.
Nikolas: Oh, yes. Colleen, you can feed him. Here.
Colleen: Oh --
Nikolas: There you go.
Nikolas: Believe it or not, there's more stuff in the foyer, so --
Lucky: Ahem. Great. You know, I think I understand why you invited me over -- it's just to haul things around.
Nikolas: The sooner we can decorate this place, the better.
Colleen: Everyone is so happy tonight. It's going to be a beautiful Christmas. What a shame they forced me to ruin it. I didn't know what it was called, I just knew
Noah: You know, you're wallowing in this negativity just like I used to wallow in vodka. If you're not careful, it's going to poison every aspect of your life just as surely as alcohol poisoned mine.
Robin: Thank you. I understand the analogy.
Noah: You know what? I don't think you do. I think one of these days, this negativity is going to hit you like the hangover from hell. You're going to wake up and realize you've wasted half your life on this hopelessness and pessimism.
Robin: I just feel that is better to tell the patient the truth instead of lying to them.
Noah: Being optimistic is not lying --
Robin: It can be sometimes.
Noah: You know what? You're one of the most gifted and generous doctors I know.
P.A. Announcer: Dr. Noah Drake, call --
Noah: But this negative stuff -- it's selling you; it's selling your patients and your talent short. So until you get that under control, I want you to stay away from my patients. Are we clear?
Robin: I bet you have something to add.
Patrick: Actually, I couldn't have said it any better myself.
Epiphany: Oh, what are you doing back here?
Elizabeth: Well, do you think I could pick up another shift?
Epiphany: Nope. I'm taken care of for tonight. It's the holidays -- everybody is trying to make a little extra money.
Elizabeth: All right, it was worth a try.
Epiphany: Why aren't you out there enjoying the holidays, taking your son to see the Christmas lights, or do something nice for yourself and that baby you're having on the way? Nobody is asking you to work all the time, Elizabeth. Miss Quartermaine.
Elizabeth: Ok, I lied. What about you? I thought you had to come get a file or something. Oh.
Emily: So why the cover story? Why didn't you just say you had to go home?
Elizabeth: I don't know.
Emily: Because Lucky wanted to kiss you?
Elizabeth: Because part of me was wishing he would.
[Christmas music plays]
Nikolas: Ok, you do realize that when Emily comes back here, she's going to want to change all this around? And you know her -- she can be very sweet and very gentile about it, but it will take the rest of the night.
Lucky: Yeah, I'm better at Christmas trees and garlands than I have been with Elizabeth these days.
Nikolas: You should've went for the kiss.
Lucky: Oh, so you're the expert now just because Emily took you back?
Nikolas: She loves you, that's all I'm saying.
Lucky: Love and trust are two different things.
Nikolas: Hey -- Emily found a way to trust me again.
Lucky: That's different.
Nikolas: Yes, in some ways it is. But remember, we both did have affairs and got other women pregnant.
Lucky: Now, that's true. But you and Emily found a way back to each other.
Nikolas: And during that time, Emily turned to Sonny. Do you think you could handle it if Elizabeth found someone else?
Lucky: What, you honestly think Elizabeth can be with another guy?
Sam: We're going to hang this star on the tree as soon as we get one, ok?
Alexis: Do you like this one? What do you think? That was funny -- all of you with your wigs on, you and the boys. Jax looked pretty funny, too, huh? It made me feel better about wearing fake hair, because you guys looked so cute in it. You know what? I have to go to the hospital to have my medicine again, so I'm not going to be home to put you to bed. You'll be sleeping when I -- when I come back. So tomorrow, will you help me pick out just the right wig for mommy? Maybe we can get a flashy one, real red, and we can put a Santa hat on it. What do you think? I love you, baby.
Sam: Why don't you let me drive you?
Alexis: That's all right; I'm going to drive myself.
Sam: No, really. I mean, I'm just -- I'm not going to want to, you know, bond and stuff. It's just I'm afraid that, you know, you're going to be really tired.
Alexis: Ok. I will tell Viola when I -- when I grab my bag. Listen, the chemo's going to take a while, and I was thinking maybe I would do some work.
Sam: I -- I want you to know that I'm not going to go run off to see Jason.
Lulu: Stars are really bright once you get out of the city. Are you ok?
Jason: I'm ok.
Lulu: Sorry I bumped your leg.
Jason: It's all right.
Lulu: I mean, it's kind of -- it is a little your fault. Because you could've let me drive for a little bit just to get it out of my system. You could've been the navigator for two seconds. I mean, maybe I could drive on the interstate and -- and I could blast some music if I got tired.
Lulu: So how many hours is this supposed to take? Well, if you let me drive now, I'll let you drive when we get to Oakfield. Oh, wait -- can we go through Memphis? Can we stop at Graceland?
Lulu: Why? Don't you want to see where Elvis lives?
Jason: Well, it's on the other side of the state.
Lulu: Ok. Well, if I was driving, I would make sure we stopped in Graceland, took the whole tour, and even went to the gift shop.
Jason: Ok, we're not going to Graceland, all right? The only house you need to focus on is the one Spinelli showed you in the photo, so focus.
Lulu: Oh. Well, I hope I can remember it, considering I looked at it for three seconds when I was downing tequila.
Jason: Well, what happened to the Spencers having excellent memories? What happened to that whole thing?
Lulu: Are you seriously making fun of me right now? Because I think I -- yep. Yeah, I'm actually the most important person, considering I'm the only one who knows where Spinelli is, and he's the only one that can prove that your girlfriend is framed -- if he's still even at his grandmotherís. You think she has Wi-Fi? Because if not, Spinelli is probably long gone. And if he is there, I'm probably the only one that would be able to talk to him. Are you really always this gabby?
Jason: I just want to drive, all right?
Lulu: Are you ok?
Jason: Yeah, I'm ok.
Lulu: Well, I don't -- I don't know if you noticed, but the spot where I hit your leg with the door, where you were shot is -- I think it's bleeding.
Sam: I like it, no. That looks nice.
Dr. Trent: Alexis, your room is set up for chemo.
Alexis: Terrific. Let's get this over with.
Dr. Trent: Is it possible we could have a word alone?
Alexis: I take it this is about the judge in my daughter's case?
Dr. Trent: It is, as a matter of fact.
Alexis: Ok. Then go ahead.
Dr. Trent: Oh, but your -- your daughter --
Alexis: We're way beyond that. So did the judge contact you?
Dr. Trent: He requested my opinion as to whether or not you were strong enough to handle such an important case. I had to say no.
Alexis: I'm not surprised. I say this with respect, but I think you're wrong.
Dr. Trent: Any responsible medical professional would agree that right now is not the time for you to be taking on such a -- a huge task.
Alexis: I've gotten through the first chemo relatively easily. I think that my body can handle the second one. And I think that I'll be in perfectly good condition to be able to try my daughter's case. And if you don't agree with that, then I'm going to have to find a doctor that does. I'm sorry.
Dr. Trent: My responsibility is to you, not your daughter, not the court system. You need to concentrate on beating this cancer, not being in court.
Alexis: Dr. Scorpio, may I have a word with you, please?
Alexis: You know my situation, and I am requesting that you give me a physical so that you can tell the judge that I am indeed strong enough to try my daughter's case.
Robin: I'm sorry, Alexis, I -- I can't lie for you.
Nikolas: You're right, our situations are different. And so are Elizabeth and Emily.
[Christmas music plays]
Lucky: Hurt is still hurt. Emily turned to Sonny. I mean, why wouldn't Elizabeth turn to another guy?
Nikolas: Now, look, I'm -- I'm no expert or anything, but isn't this, you know, backsliding a bit? Isn't suspecting Elizabeth just another trigger for you to pick up pills again?
Lucky: No, that was just one excuse. I have millions of them.
Nikolas: Ok, then why -- then why dwell on it? I mean, so far, you've handled everything really well. Mom's recovery, the wedding, losing her again. You've handled it.
Lucky: Yeah, mom has been on my mind all night, too.
Nikolas: Yeah. She would have loved all this, wouldn't she?
Lucky: I'm never going back to pills. I mean, it's like a slap in the face to mom to waste my life like that, to lose Elizabeth. We'll be a family someday.
Nikolas: And, Lucky, I -- I sincerely hope that that happens. But if it doesn't, do you ever see yourself making a life without Elizabeth?
Elizabeth: For just an instant tonight, I looked into Lucky's eyes, and I saw the man I fell in love with. And I wanted to wrap my arms around him and say "Where have you been?"
Emily: Why didn't you?
Elizabeth: Because I know exactly where he's been. He's been in a room above Kellyís and in our bed with Maxie Jones. I'm not saying I'm perfect. But that night that I spent with Jason would have never happened if I thought there was anything left to me and Lucky.
Emily: Elizabeth, I thought Nikolas and I had lost everything, too. But nothing is set in stone. People change for the better and then for the worst, and then back again sometimes. But the love never really goes away.
Elizabeth: I know, and that's what makes it so difficult. Because I do still love him. A part of me always will, but it's not enough. I have to think about my kids, and little Cameron -- his life has been so disrupted by me trying to help Lucky, and I'm not going to do it again. I have to be fair to this baby.
Emily: Doesn't that include letting the baby's father be present in its life?
Jason: Oh. Ok, this is -- this is fine. Thank you very much.
Woman: The ice machine's over there, and the diner's open 24/7. You need anything, I'll be at the front desk. I'm Abigail.
Jason: Ok, thank you.
Lulu: Do you usually keep your baby up this late?
Abigail: I'm just glad I can bring her with me. I mean, it saves me a fortune on childcare.
Lulu: Yeah, but how is that fair to your baby?
Jason: I -- I apologize for my sister --
Lulu: I mean, why should your baby have to stay up all night just to be with you?
Jason: Ok -- thank you again. And again, I'm sorry. I -- I apologize. What -- what is wrong with you?
Lulu: What? Do you think it's a good idea for a baby to be up all night --?
Jason: Well --
Lulu: While the mom is working?
Jason: I think that mom is doing the best she can. You don't treat people like that. You understand?
Lulu: No, obviously, you don't understand.
Alexis: Robin, you haven't even examined me. How are you so sure that I can't represent Sam?
Robin: Well, because I've seen your chart. You have stage-two lung cancer. You're starting out with a 50% survival rate.
Sam: Hey, what -- are you trying to upset her?
Robin: No, I'm just being realistic. You have a surgical procedure on one lung. Then you developed post-op pneumonia. We had to induce a coma so we can fight yet another infection. Overall, you've been slow to respond to any treatment. And on top of that, you have a lot of stress, which complicates everything.
Sam: That's enough.
Robin: You shouldn't be thinking about representing your daughter. You should be thinking about enjoying what could very well be your last days.
Patrick: Thank you very much for your opinion, Dr. Scorpio. I apologize. My colleague -- she's obviously lost her mind.
Alexis: I can't argue with the facts.
Patrick: The facts are you're showing remarkable courage in the face of a serious illness. I'm very impressed with your tenacity and determination from the start.
Alexis: But Dr. Scorpio just said --
Patrick: Dr. Scorpio's not herself at the moment. And she's speculating, and I'm sorry. In my opinion, your prognosis is great. You'll live as long and as well as you choose to.
[Christmas music plays]
Nikolas: So listen, I -- I'm not trying to discourage you or anything. I just want you to be prepared for what might happen, that's all.
Lucky: Didn't you just say I should have kissed Elizabeth?
Nikolas: I did. But I guess you felt like you knew better.
Lucky: Well, the longer I stay clean, the easier it'll be for Elizabeth to see the man she married again, the man who loves her.
Nikolas: But this is putting a lot of pressure on yourself, don't you think?
Lucky: It's faith. I am the father of Elizabethís baby, and that baby one day will lead us back into each other's arms, and we'll be a family again.
Elizabeth: I don't want to keep trashing Lucky, but look at the kind of family man he's become. I mean, he's a drug addict who conceived another child with his girlfriend -- probably in my bed. He's disrespected me for months. He's tried to frame Jason for drug possession, and almost got me shot in the process.
Emily: My father did terrible things, Elizabeth, when he was addicted to hydrocodone. It was really tough for a while, but he and my mom -- they got through it.
Elizabeth: Yeah, but Monicaís children were almost grown when that happened. I have a toddler and a baby on the way, and they deserve a stable home. How do I know if Lucky's going to relapse? How does he even know?
Emily: That's where faith comes in.
Elizabeth: And if it were just me, then I guess I could take that chance, but I have to consider my children. And they deserve to have a father who's loving and consistent and who's not going to sleep with another woman for a handful of pills. I guess my problem is I just haven't really forgiven him yet. And I don't want my children to grow up with anger and resentment and just waiting for the other shoe to drop. You know, I want to give them a home with two parents who love and respect each other. And if I can't do that, then I'd rather raise my kids alone.
Emily: Alone? Or with someone besides Lucky?
Lulu: How's the leg?
Jason: It's not serious.
Lulu: I could have helped you change the bandages.
Jason: It's ok.
Lulu: Why don't you just say what you really mean? You wouldn't let me within 50 feet of the bullet wound because you don't think that I can handle it.
Jason: Actually, you shouldn't even be exposed to any of this.
Lulu: I can get it.
Jason: It's ok, I can get it.
Lulu: I know how to close a pair of stupid blinds!
Jason: What is -- what is wrong with you?
Lulu: Yeah, well, is that the big question? Isn't it? What is wrong with Lulu Spencer? Well, nobody knows, especially not you. And to you, I'm just some useless bratty teenager who picks on motel clerks.
Jason: Lulu, I -- I'm sorry for dragging you into this, ok? Obviously, it's bothering you more than I thought, but I can't --
Lulu: But you have to protect me -- I know, I'm aware of that. And maybe that's why I'm so mad. Because I'm sick and tired of being everybody's problem.
Robin: There's no reason to do this. I don't want to talk to you right now.
Patrick: Well, you're going to listen. Damn it, Robin, this is a hospital. You are a doctor. Your job it so heal people, not use them for your own private ethical dilemma.
Robin: There is no dilemma.
Patrick: What were you thinking telling Alexis that?
Robin: Well, Alexis happened to ask me for my opinion.
Patrick: So you deliver her eulogy? Not to mention, set yourself up for a malpractice suit?
Robin: I don't believe a doctor can be sued for telling the truth.
Patrick: You didn't even examine her.
Robin: That's because I've read her chart, several times, and it's very clear.
Patrick: Oh, and you're always right, aren't you?
Robin: Oh. I forgot. You always have to be right. You are the brilliant doctor who suddenly decided that I've given up on everyone because I couldn't cure Laura Spencer.
Patrick: Unfortunately, this goes much further than Laura Spencer. This is about you being alive and Stone being dead.
Jason: I understand you didn't cause any of this, and you didn't mean to be involved, but we'll be spending a lot of time together. So whatever is bothering you, just say it, ok? Or set it aside until later.
Lulu: And what are you going to do, send me back?
Jason: If I have to, yes. Your attitude attracts too much attention. You're being mean to the night clerk for no reason.
Lulu: Hmm. So that's why you gave her a $100 tip?
Jason: No, I'm a fugitive, Lulu, and Alcazar wants you dead. I'd rather have her happy than in tears.
Lulu: And you think it's ok that she brings a baby with her on the graveyard shift?
Jason: It's not -- it's not my choice -- or yours.
Lulu: Well, she probably didn't even want the kid, and now the kid is well aware of it.
Jason: Oh, ok. Well, maybe you're right. All right? Or maybe Abigail wanted to be a mother more than anything in the world.
Lulu: She obviously couldn't afford it. Otherwise, she wouldn't be here.
Jason: Well, she's making a sacrifice for her child. Maybe her life got a whole lot more difficult when she got pregnant, and she had to realize she had to deal with it alone. So she's doing what she has to do to take care of her child. Maybe she's glad that she has a kid. You know how many women who would give anything to have a kid? I mean, especially women who thought they had a kid once, and all of the sudden, it was gone.
Lulu: What do you know? You're a guy. You don't have the first clue about any of this.
Sam: Would you like something from the cafeteria? Maybe a shake or --
Alexis: No, thanks.
Sam: How about a cup of coffee?
Alexis: You know, I don't mean to be rude, but honestly, what I really need is some time alone, because I have to go through all these notes for your defense, you know?
Sam: I can find another lawyer.
Alexis: You're worried about Robin. You're worried about what she said. Well, to be perfectly honest, it scared the hell out of me too, but I'm going to choose to go right with Dr. Patrick's assessment and assume that everything will be fine.
Sam: Ok, well, why would she say otherwise, then?
Alexis: I don't know. Maybe she's having a breakdown, like he said.
Sam: Then she shouldn't be practicing medicine.
Alexis: I really don't know Robin that well, but I got to tell you, when I look at her, it's almost like looking at a mirror. I see her just throwing her focus right into her work. You know, thinking she can separate her personal life and her professional life, which you canít. It's kind of like throwing everything into the denial compartment. And then it just sort of explodes, and you can't erase it from the screen. I'm not going to let it get to me, and I don't think you should, too. And I don't think you should have to mommy-sit. I'll be ok.
Sam: Ok. Um -- I'll be back to pick you up?
Alexis: No, no, no, no, no. I'll take a cab.
Sam: Are you kidding me?
Alexis: No --
Sam: No, of course I'm going to pick you up.
Alexis: There's no -- no, no reason for you to have to drive back to the house again. I'll be fine.
Sam: Ok. Whatever you want.
Georgie: He's not here.
Georgie: "Who"? Come on, Maxie. I've watched you obsess about Lucky for months. He's the only reason you come to Kellyís. He's the only reason you do anything.
Maxie: So you just think I'm pathetic?
Georgie: No, Maxie, I don't think you're pathetic. I think if you put this much time and energy into a job, you'd be the C.E.O. of a company by now.
Maxie: And that would be ok. If I -- if I was working at some fashion magazine and put all my time and energy in that, that would be ok?
Georgie: Why don't you? Why don't you apply for an internship somewhere?
Maxie: Based on what? My -- my one year of mediocre grades from P.C.U.?
Georgie: I'll write you an essay, Maxie.
Maxie: Wow. Yeah, that would be a good achievement -- getting my dream job because you cheated for me. Why are we even discuss-- you always do this.
Georgie: Do what?
Maxie: Bring up a bunch of stupid hypotheticals. I -- I'm not going to work at some fashion magazine or anywhere else, for that matter. I'm going to have Lucky's baby. And by the time I do, he's going to love me.
Elizabeth: Oh. Damn it! Hey, it's me. I know I shouldn't be calling, but I need a favor.
Colleen: Time to get you upstairs, sleepyhead. Hmm. Such a handsome boy. It won't be easy to say goodbye, even for a little while. But I promise, it will all work out in the end. No one can ever separate us again. Ok? Ok. Off to bed.
Patrick: You have a classic case of survivor's guilt.
Robin: That's ridiculous.
Patrick: Laura Spencer was the catalyst. After all, why should you get to live when she's locked away in her own mind? Especially since you were the one that gave her the medication in the first place to bring her back. And speaking of medications --
Patrick: Really not fair that the HIV cocktail worked for you and it didn't work for Stone. Why should you get to live when he died so young?
Robin: Ok, your logic doesn't track. This has nothing to do with Stone.
Patrick: Oh, it doesn't have anything to do with Stone?
Patrick: No? You did penance for a long time. Then you fell in love with Jason. And when that didn't work out, you took off to Paris, locked yourself in a lab, surrounded yourself with work, and called it dedication, making sure to never enjoy the most beautiful city in the world. Then you really slipped up when you came back to Port Charles.
Patrick: Yeah, you allowed yourself to live, fell in love with me. Now your guilt's gone haywire, and you're blaming everyone around you, especially yourself. Hey, listen for a second.
Maxie: How come what you're doing is right and what I'm doing is wrong?
Georgie: I think you're going to have to be a little more specific.
Maxie: Well, you work until you drop. I mean, school, volunteering, here. You get good grades, you're focused, you save your money --
Georgie: Maxie, you're making me sound a little boring here.
Maxie: No, no -- you know what you want. And what you want is fine. I mean, you're focused on learning. You save your money so you can travel Europe. You have good goals, and everyone's really proud of you. But what about -- what about love? Why isn't that a good goal? Having it, holding on to it? I love Lucky, and I am working really hard all the time to make him love me, too. What's wrong with that? How come you're the A-1 overachiever and I'm just Maxie the skank?
Georgie: Maxie, you are not a skank.
Maxie: Well, you didn't see how they treated me at the wedding.
Georgie: Maxie, why did you go?
Maxie: Because I care about Lucky. And whether or not he wants to admit it, he cares about me, too. I guess part of me was just hoping he would grab me and take me over to his mom and say, "Hey, remember Maxie Jones? She's carrying your grandchild, and I care about her."
Georgie: Maxie, I'm so sorry that didn't happen.
Maxie: Yeah, well, it didn't, so who cares?
Georgie: I do. Maxie, I want you to be with someone who appreciates you.
Maxie: Lucky will. You'll see. I just -- I need to hold on a little longer.
Elizabeth: Thanks for getting here so quickly.
Lucky: Well, I'm glad you called.
Elizabeth: Well, I figured why waste money on a tow truck and a mechanic when --
Lucky: Yeah, right. Is it still doing that that tick-tick sound thing?
Elizabeth: Yeah, exactly.
Lucky: Well, let me take a look. Ok.
Elizabeth: Sorry you had to come all the way out here.
Lucky: No, it's not a problem. Ok, you know what? Try that.
Elizabeth: It's all fixed.
Colleen: Mr. Cassadine?
Nikolas: No need to be formal.
Colleen: Nikolas, I'm sorry to intrude, but I need to speak to you right away.
Nikolas: Oh. Ahem. How can I help you?
Emily: Nikolas, I'm sorry that took -- oh. I didn't realize I was interrupting.
Colleen: You weren't, actually. I think it's best you hear this together. I know I've been let go, and you've been gracious enough to allow me to stay on until the first of the year. But I'd like to resign, effective immediately.
Lulu: What do you know about women and babies? Huh? You're not even a parent. You don't have a kid.
Jason: I brought Michael up for the first year of his life.
Lulu: Yeah? Well, you never lost a child.
Jason: Actually, I did. More than one.
Lulu: Well, you've never had a life inside of you. You've never had to choose! You've never had to think about what would be best for you. Or what it would really be like to bring a child into this world that you didn't want and that you couldn't take care of, even though the father promises that he would love your baby when you know for a fact that he doesn't love you. You never had to read the pamphlets or walk into that room or lay on that table or have that light in your eyes! You never had to end a life that started inside of you, ok? You never have to think about a child every single time you see one. You never have to answer those questions that don't have any answers that won't go away.
>> Stay tuned for scenes from the next "General Hospital."
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Nikolas: I'd like to know why you suddenly decided to leave now.
Noah: Let me guess -- something to do with Robin.
Sonny: You're feeling guilty because you're falling in love again.
Robin: What makes you think that I love Patrick?
Jason: I didn't realize you were in so much pain.
Lulu: Don't you dare feel sorry for me right now.
