Dillon: Ok, I'm Rick, I'm coming at you; I'm coming at you fast.
Lulu: Oh --
Dillon: Ooh, sorry.
Lulu: Excuse me.
Dillon: No -- Georgie, Georgie, Georgie -- Georgie, come here. Uh -- it's not what it looks like.
Georgie: No, Dillon, it's exactly what it looks like -- you finding yet another way to be epoxied to Lulu.
Maxie: You and I aren't together. Neither are you and Elizabeth, and her baby wasn't any more planned than mine. I think we should let Elizabeth weigh in. Elizabeth?
Elizabeth: What now, Maxie?
Maxie: Well, Lucky wants to give up one of his kids for adoption, and I think you should tell me why it shouldn't be yours.
Sam: I don't want to pressure you.
Jason: No, no, you're not. You're not. I -- I want us to have a child together, I do. I'm just not sure if I should be anybody's father at this point.
Carly: What did you just say to me?
Jax: You heard me.
Carly: I just told you all the reasons why I have to go after Sonny.
Jax: And I told you what would happen if you do.
Carly: Ok, let me see if I understand this. After all your claims of love and trust, you will cancel this wedding if I don't do what you want me to do?
Jax: That's right.
Carly: Cancel it.
Lulu: Dillon is helping me with a project. You just walked in on us trying to work out the logistics --
Lulu: Of a situation.
Georgie: Something to do with your mother murdering Rick Webber, right? It's not that hard to figure out. It happened right here. What I really would've appreciated is either one of you coming to me and asking if you could use my family's attic to re-create a crime scene -- or whatever it is you think you're doing here.
Dillon: Georgie -- Georgie, nothing romantic is going on here, if that's what you're thinking. We're solving a mystery, that's it.
Georgie: Of course, Dillon, of course. It's the perfect way to reel you in. Don't you get that? And Lulu is nobody's fool. She saw how lying to you to get you into bed worked out, now she's moved on to smarter, brainier schemes.
Dillon: That's not fair.
Lulu: No, Georgie is justified in being suspicious of me. But you are wrong. This is not a trap to get Dillon. I just want to prove that my mom did not kill Rick Webber.
Georgie: Right. And Dillon is the only one that can help you, right?
Lulu: Wrong again.
Spinelli: Oh, listen up, mouthy one. I've got what we need to solve this thing.
Lulu: Meet my -- friend, Spinelli. He's helping me, too.
Alexis: This conversation is veering dangerously off course. The matter on the table is the viability of your case against my client.
Ric: No, the matter on the table is whether or not I can convict Sam of Diego Alcazar's murder, and you know what?
Alexis: Which you can't because it's self-defense, Ric.
Ric: I like my odds very well because it seems that you agree with me. Otherwise, you wouldn't be willing to drag this sordid tale of my one-night stand with your daughter into the court -- which, by the way, is not a good idea, Alexis. Come on. We're going to both get thrown off the case for conflict of interest, and then that's going to leave some hungry ADA with absolutely no allegiance to you and a hell of a lot to prove in charge. Jason is going to lose all kinds of money getting a new defense attorney, and in the end, it's going to turn out the same. Sam's going to be convicted. There's only one small difference here -- you're going to be humiliated in the process.
Alexis: I crossed that bridge when married you, Ric.
Ric: Ok, look, I realize how much you regret everything about being married to me, including the daughter that we share together.
Alexis: That is an absurd, self-justifying lie.
Ric: Really? Is it, Alexis? You're using Molly and keeping her from me to spite me. So let's just drop the facade here, and let's make a deal that works out for both of us. I will drop the charges against Sam -- if you give me full custody of Molly.
Elizabeth: I have no idea what I walked into and, frankly, I don't care, but I have no intention of giving up my baby for adoption.
Maxie: Looks like we have something in common after all -- besides Lucky, of course.
Lucky: Will you just listen to my reasons for this?
Maxie: You can say whatever you want, but I'm not going to change my mind.
Lucky: Maxie, you don't even have a job. You're entirely dependant on Mac, you weren't planning the pregnancy, and you have no experience with children. And, honestly, the only interest you've shown in this baby is using it to get me back.
Maxie: God, you're arrogant, even while you're sitting there trying to get me to pawn off our baby on total strangers.
Lucky: I'm only suggesting adoption because it's the baby's best chance at a happy, well-adjusted life.
Elizabeth: Lucky, you don't know what you're saying.
Sam: I thought you were looking forward to becoming a father.
Jason: I am. You know? But a good parent puts his child's happiness and well-being ahead of his own, right?
Sam: Which is why I think you are going to be wonderful.
Jason: Oh, man, I -- I want to devote myself to that baby so much, Sam, and to give our -- our son or our daughter the best life I know. But, I mean, what would happen if we had a baby during this whole thing we went through? What -- that's the stuff I think about.
Sam: I know, I know. But you were willing to do it with Elizabeth, so --
Jason: I would never turn my back on a child that needed me. But there is a difference between caring for a child that already exists -- like I did, you know, with Michael, like -- like we were going to do for your daughter -- and making a choice to create a life and bring it into an uncertain situation. I just don't -- I don't know. It doesn't seem fair to the baby, and that's who matters most.
Carly: You are so unfair. You promised to accept me for who I am, to make an effort to understand me and to work towards compromise, not firing off crazy ultimatums. You know, you're supposed to be different.
Jax: You know what? Compromise and understanding are -- are one thing. But you running off after Sonny when he's gone to his private island to sulk is completely different.
Carly: So you get to define who and what I'm allowed to care about, what -- what's permissible for me?
Jax: Well, a little bit when it's completely unrealistic!
Carly: Let me tell you something. When people put up boundaries, I will push against them.
Jax: Oh. Ok.
Carly: I'm going to the island, and if you're going to call off the wedding because of that, you never wanted to marry me to begin with.
Spinelli: I've got the tech support necessary for the investigation.
Lulu: All right, let's see it.
Lulu: A tape measure?
Spinelli: Yeah, it's a crime scene. We need accurate measurements.
Dillon: Actually, yeah. No, I -- I hate to agree with his righteousness about anything ever, but he's right. You always have to start with the forensics of the scene. I mean, both the killer and the victim will leave clues behind like they're trying to tell you what happened. But in order to get to that, you start with the science. You have to re-create the scene.
Lulu: Wow, I am impressed. I didn't know you knew anything about crime scene investigation.
Dillon: Oh -- "The Thin Man," "Sherlock Holmes." Film noir really made a great leap in that area. A well-written scene, I mean, can tell you a lot about --
Spinelli: Ok, uh, guys --
Spinelli: Can we get this sucker going? Ok, Lulu and Dillon, you take your places as stepfather dude and mom, and you -- um -- you're -- you're kind of a third wheel.
Georgie: Yeah, gee, thanks for pointing that out.
Spinelli: No, no, no, no offense, hostile one. I was just -- you know, it's a two-person play -- at least, for this act -- but you can hold this.
Georgie: I'm kind of busy.
Spinelli: Doing what?
Lulu: Uh -- Georgie and Dillon are -- have some personal problems.
Spinelli: Oh. Little sisters can be a drag.
Dillon: Uh -- she's not my little sister, your holiness.
Spinelli: What are you saying? Oh -- she's your chick!
Spinelli: Oh -- well, wait, what does that make you? Because isn't Dillon the one you're always, like --
Lulu: Hey, you know what?
Lulu: We're going to table this reenactment for later. And you must be exhausted after your long trip, and I need to find a place for you to crash, and Georgie and Dillon need some alone time to talk, ok? Yeah, say nothing now. Go now.
Dillon: Spinelli kind of operates permanently from an altered state of mind, if you know what I mean.
Georgie: Well, obviously he's not that out of it if even he can see that Lulu is still attracted to you. I can see it. How come you're the only one wearing blinders?
Jax: There shouldn't be a doubt in your mind that I want to marry you. What I won't do is sign on to a situation where our marriage comes second to everything else, including your dysfunctional relationship with Sonny.
Carly: You knew going in that Sonny was a part of the package, Jax.
Jax: A part, yes --
Jax: But not your world revolving around him.
Carly: That's a bit of an overstatement, don't you think?
Jax: Oh, really?
Jax: Ok, well, let me have a go at this, and, please, stop me if I'm wrong. When Sonny found out that you were happy with me, he tried to sabotage me, right? That was the first thing he tried. And then when that didn't work, he -- he pulled out those cheap romantic tricks. That didn't work, either, so he pulled out the heavy artillery -- your mutual need. The pain that you share that no one else seems to be able to comprehend. Sonny will take you married if he has to. Ok, it's not his first choice, but he -- but he will. And a little inconvenience like a husband is not going to stop him from trying to be the focus of your life. Well, I object, Carly, because I want you to be the focus of your own life. I -- I want you to choose to be happy, and with Sonny, then you should go to him. If that's with me, then Sonny needs to learn to get along without you -- and there's no better time than the present to start that.
Carly: I won't go.
Jax: You won't? Oh.
Carly: I love you. Only you.
Jax: I love you, too.
Jax: I have to get that.
Carly: We're in the middle of a major relationship moment here. Why do you need to answer this call?
Alexis: If you honestly think that I would give up my own child, especially to you, you are so much more deranged than I ever --
Ric: I'm her father, Alexis.
Alexis: Well, yes, you are, but that's a biological accident.
Ric: Ok, you know, you're just using Molly to hurt me.
Alexis: No, I'm not, Ric. I am genuinely trying to protect her from you. I mean, wouldn't that be nice -- to tell Molly this little lie about how her mother never loved her? That's good parenting. No, Ric, I am defending her from you and your rage -- or whatever it is that you seem to be --
Ric: Right, of course -- of course you are, Alexis. Yeah, you're keeping Molly from her demon father, Ric, right, whether you like it or not. Even though you're -- you're too weak from chemo yourself to -- to be an effective parent, which is one of the reasons, by the way, why Kristina wandered away from you --
Ric: And was witness to -- to Sam shooting Diego Alcazar in the first place. But I'm sorry, no, that's my fault, right?
Ric: Even if none of this had ever happened, you blatantly show favor on Kristina. Why? Not because she -- she needs anything more. She doesn't need any more attention. It's for one reason, and one reason only -- because she's Sonnyís. Ok, I'll be damned if I'm going to let my daughter feel less than or slighted --
Alexis: I --
Ric: Than her older sister!
Alexis: Where in the hell do you get this garbage?
Ric: From you, sweetheart!
Alexis: From me?
Alexis: Oh, you know what? I'm done. You want to go to court; we'll go to court.
Ric: Fine. That's great.
Alexis: I've done it before. You want to fight over custody, we'll do it.
Ric: You'll lose.
Alexis: We'll spend hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Alexis: On yet another case of a narciss--
Jason: Look, it would be amazing to have a child with you. It would be. I -- I would love that baby so much. I couldn't wait to watch it grow up, to see parts of both of us in that baby.
Sam: Ok. Well, that's good. That means we're halfway there.
Jason: Yeah, but what I just said -- it was all about me. It wasn't about the baby.
Sam: Ok. Jason, what are you saying? Are you saying that you don't want to have kids?
Jason: No, no, I'm not. I -- I'm not saying that. I'm not.
Jason: I --
Sam: Hold that thought. Alexis?
Alexis: Hi, Sam. I'm -- I'm sorry to disturb you. Kristina's not feeling so good tonight, and I thought maybe she could use a distraction -- a visit from her sister?
Sam: Ok, I'll be right there.
Elizabeth: I don't think adoption is a decision you should make lightly.
Lucky: But Maxieís completely incapable.
Elizabeth: I'm not concerned with Maxie, ok? I'm worried about what you would have to live with. It might be harder than you think -- knowing you have a child out there somewhere growing up without you, no contact, never being able to provide that child with love and support.
Maxie: Wow. Ok, this is a red-letter day -- two things we agree on. Maybe Lucky will listen to you and stop trying to get me to dump my kid.
Lucky: Oh, is that what you think -- that I want to dump Maxieís baby?
Elizabeth: No, of course not.
Lucky: I'm just trying to find the best solution for everyone involved, including this child.
Elizabeth: Then why do you think adoption is the answer?
Lucky: Because I don't know if I'm going to have time to fit this baby into my life when we have a baby of our own on the way. And as time goes by, the less and less faith I have in Maxie being any kind of mother.
Elizabeth: I get your reservations where Maxieís concerned, but I don't think you're giving yourself enough credit. When you see that baby, when you hold your son or daughter for the first time in your arms, your entire perspective changes. You're going to be bonded to that little person like you've never been bonded to anybody in your entire life, and there won't be a question about time, or your ability to give.
Lucky: I just want to experience all of that when I hold my child with you.
Elizabeth: Ok, look, this is not my decision to make. I just don't think you're being fair to yourself or Maxieís baby -- your baby -- if you choose to give it up.
Dillon: Georgie, there -- there's a difference between friendship and love. You can care about someone without wanting to be with them.
Georgie: You and Lulu have history.
Dillon: So do you and I. Ok I'm not going to insult you by lying to you. Yeah, I like Lulu. And the fact that we went through the hell of -- of getting pregnant and -- and the abortion -- that's something that's probably going to -- well, it's going to bond us for -- for a while, I suspect. But I don't love her; I don't want to sleep with her. You're the girl; you're it. You're the love of my life; you have been since the beginning.
Georgie: See, I think you believe that, I really do. I just wish I could.
Dillon: Why can't you?
Georgie: Because, Dillon, things are not easy between us anymore, things don't just happen like they used to.
Dillon: Oh, all right. Ok, well, can you be more specific?
Georgie: Right there. Right there. You want specifics? There it is -- you don't even see a problem. We don't talk anymore; we don't hang out anymore. Dillon, it's like our lives are pulling us in two different directions, and yours is pulling you towards Lulu.
Dillon: That's -- no, that -- that's just coincidence. That's now.
Georgie: No, Dillon, I don't think it is. I mean, a -- a lot of me wants to just throw down and fight for you. I've even considered changing my interests again to match yours. But there's another part of me -- the biggest part says that love does not work that way. You're with someone because it feels right or you let them go because it doesnít.
Dillon: I -- I -- listen to me. I'm not giving up on us, and I'm not going to let you give up on us. Ok? I -- I love you. I always have. I always will.
Edward: Well, look who's home. Welcome traveler.
Alan: Hey, how were the slopes?
Tracy: What's that, your ski instructor?
Lulu: This is my friend Spinelli, and he needs a place to stay.
Tracy: No kidding. What does that have to do with us?
Lulu: Well, it's not like we don't have plenty of rooms.
Tracy: Let me make something perfectly clear. You do not have carte blanche to fill up our guest rooms with your weird friends.
Monica: And let me make something clear, Tracy. You don't get to decide, because this is my house. Donít.
Tracy: You don't even know that boy.
Alice: Well, shouldn't any friend of Miss Lulu's be a friend of ours?
Spinelli: Do I know you?
Alice: I don't know. Do you?
Tracy: It's obvious what's happening. Lulu is reeling from yet another emotional crisis brought about by her worthless excuse of a father.
Alan: Stop griping, will you, Tracy? If you're so fed up with Luke, divorce him.
Edward: I'm for that.
Monica: Well, maybe Tracy doesn't want to get a divorce.
Tracy: Well, maybe Tracy can speak for herself, thank you, Monica.
Monica: Just trying to help.
Tracy: You can help by not encouraging Lulu.
Spinelli: My God, no way! Ha! It's Stone Cold looking strangely like a visitor from Planet Prep.
Edward: What the hell is he talking about?
Spinelli: You -- you guys knew this dude before he was, like, armed and dangerous?
Edward: He's my grandson Jason.
Alan: Monica and I are his parents.
Spinelli: Oh -- then you people owe me. I just totally saved his butt.
Alan: You saved Jason?
Edward: Huh. From what?
Lulu: Hold on. I can explain everything.
Sam: Hey. What happened?
Alexis: She walked in on Ric and I having a pretty bad argument.
Sam: Wow. Now, that probably scared you. Huh? I know it's really confusing when you hear grownups arguing because you don't really understand what they're talking about. You know from their faces and the sound of their voice that they're mad and angry, and I bet you it probably makes you want to hide, huh? Well, you know what? There are a few things that you have to remember. Ready? First, when mommy and Daddy Ric argue, it has nothing to do with you. And second, don't tell mommy this, but she's not perfect. She's allowed to get scared, and she's allowed to get angry. But you have to remember through all that, mommy still loves you so, so, so, so much. Ok?
Lucky: I don't know, I just feel like such a hypocrite.
Mike: Why is that?
Lucky: Well, after all these years of riding my dad about his parenting skills, assuming that I'd just do so much better.
Mike: You know, becoming a parent is one of the most terrifying experiences life has to offer. I mean, it's -- it's a natural reaction to want to duck for cover and never come out again, but listen to me. Take it from one who knows that if you do that, if you fail your own flesh and blood, you're going to have regrets that are going to follow you forever.
Maxie: Ok, why'd you call me back here? If you think I'm going to change my mind, you're --
Lucky: Hey, I want -- I want you to change my mind. I want you to make me believe that you and I can give our baby a good life.
Elizabeth: You're back.
Jason: I found Spinelli. The charges were dropped.
Elizabeth: That's great. Sam?
Jason: She's out on bail. The case against her looks weak, so we just expect that it's going to fall apart.
Elizabeth: Well, I am really happy -- for the both of you.
Jason: Well, none of this would've happened if you hadn't helped me, so --
Elizabeth: Oh, please. It was the least I could do. Unless there's something else I can do for you?
Jason: Actually -- um -- I just -- I wanted to ask your opinion on something. It's -- it's kind of personal. So can we --
Elizabeth: What's going on?
Jason: If -- if I'd been the father of your baby, would you have wanted me to be a part of its life?
Lulu: So, the bottom line is Spinelli is the one who supplied the evidence that exonerated Jason.
Edward: Oh. Well, well done, young man.
Alan: Anybody who goes to the mat for my son is welcome in this house -- even if it does belong to Monica. Right?
Monica: Uh -- right, yes.
Tracy: Does anybody but me find it fascinating that Lulu knows so much about Port Charles' mob doings when she's supposedly on a ski vacation?
Spinelli: Hey, where'd you get your 411? Lulu was totally --
Lulu: Oh, look! Here comes Alice with a giant sandwich for you.
Spinelli: Oh. Oh, my God. I get why you're so familiar. You're the Dominator!
Edward: Oh, for God's sake, Alice, I thought you'd given that up.
Alice: Well, just because I work for you doesn't mean I don't have a life of my own.
Spinelli: She's a major star. I mean, you all need to check her out! She totally rules the ring every Friday night!
Alice: Oh, go on.
Spinelli: Oh, for real! Oh -- she totally wiped the floor with Pam the Punisher.
Alice: Well, she deserved it. She is such a loudmouth; she's lucky that's all I did to her.
Spinelli: Oh, man, you're --
Spinelli: You're -- you're amazing.
Tracy: Could we get back to the point?
Edward: Is there one?
Monica: Is there ever one?
Tracy: I would like to get to the bottom of how Lulu knows so much about Jasonís latest life-threatening caper.
Alan: That is a good question.
Dillon: Oh -- oh, no. Oh, hell, no. No, what is he doing here?
Alexis: Thanks for coming so quickly.
Sam: Do you think it even helped?
Alexis: I do. I think sometimes kids hear things more easily when they don't come from mom. She's better; she's sleeping.
Sam: Good. Good. What -- what happened with Ric anyway?
Alexis: I was hoping to persuade him to drop the charges against you, and that somehow escalated into a screaming match about whose fault the failure of the marriage was. And somehow in the midst of the vitriol, he agreed to drop the charges if I gave him custody of Molly.
Sam: Ok, and I hope you told him where he could take that.
Alexis: Yeah, I did.
Alexis: I hope you understand.
Sam: Yeah. I'm -- of course I understand. I would never want you to sacrifice Molly or Kristina for me. And for what it's worth, I -- I support your decision. Whatever -- whatever you decide with Ric, I'm -- I'm with you, ok?
Alexis: Irony is interesting, isn't it? All this time, all summer long I worried that the violence that surrounds Jason would harm you, and it's Kristina that ended up getting hurt.
Sam: You do know that I would give anything if that hadn't happened?
Alexis: Well, you know, Sam, violence isn't neat and tidy. You can't plan for it or choose who's going to witness it or bear its scars.
Lucky: Kids need love and attention. They need to know that they matter. I want to give that to our baby, but I can't do it alone.
Maxie: I know I'm not perfect, but I'm determined to be a good mom, and with your help and support, I know that could happen.
Lucky: I want you to understand we're not a couple, and we won't be. I'm committed to Elizabeth because I love her. But I'm promising that I will be more involved, starting with your next appointment. I want to be there.
Elizabeth: I always knew you'd want what was best for my baby, whether you were the father or not.
Jason: But when you thought it might be mine, you said you wanted to raise it alone. Why?
Elizabeth: Because we never intended on making a life together. And if this baby had been yours, then it would've been an accident. And I didn't want you to have to make a commitment for the sake of a baby that you didn't even plan.
Jason: Is that it?
Elizabeth: What do you mean?
Jason: Well, you know, my life, my work -- did that figure into your decision? I mean, do you think it would be wrong to raise a child in -- you know, in a home where there are armed guards, guns, the possibility of death? And if I'd been the father of your baby, do you think it would just be better off without me?
Elizabeth: Jason -- look, I know your heart, and I would -- I know that you would do everything in your power to protect your child. And you would be able to give him or her everything that children need the most -- love and patience, tolerance, compassion. Your child would be a better human being for having you as an involved father.
Jason: Thank you. I mean, that meant a lot to me.
Elizabeth: I'm signing out early. I have a family emergency.
Tracy: Oh, good, Dillonís here. Perhaps he can shed some light on what Lulu's up to and what Spumoni has to do with it.
Spinelli: Um -- ahem -- Spinelli.
Lulu: Uh -- look, stepmonster, I -- I appreciate your concern, really, I -- I do, but I'm fine. In fact, you'd be happy to know that I'm setting aside my own personal pain to reach out and help others like Spinelli, and it is very kind of you to open your home and your hearts.
Tracy: Let him stay here, we will all regret it.
Alice: Stop being so rude to my fan. We're very happy to have you here. By the way, you can call me Alice.
Spinelli: Wow. Huh! I'm -- I'm so honored to meet you. You're just --
Tracy: I'm going to puke.
Lulu: Ok, um, I would like some alone time with my guest.
Alice: Come on, everyone, let's get out and give Lulu some private time.
Edward: God, this is ridiculous -- being ordered out of my own den by the maid.
Alice: Just keep moving.
Lulu: Thank you.
Alice: My pleasure.
Dillon: You know my mom is right, right? It's a catastrophically bad idea having him stay here.
Spinelli: What? I know how to be a good houseguest.
Dillon: Somehow I doubt that, but that's beside the point. You don't want him here.
Lulu: You keep saying that, but I'm not hearing why.
Dillon: Because Spaghetti over here can't keep his mouth shut and the Quartermaines are expert at extracting information. How long do you think it's going to be, Lulu, before they figure out that you're trying to prove your mother's innocence by figuring out who killed Rick Webber?
Carly: That took longer than expected.
Jax: Yeah, well, I had a few details I needed to get ironed out, you know?
Carly: You're just in time for dinner.
Jax: Wow. Nice. Huh. What's on the menu?
Carly: Oh, my specialty.
Jax: Yeah. It's still frozen. I thought you were ok with not going after Sonny.
Carly: I am.
Jax: Ok. Well, you're angry about something.
Carly: True, but it has nothing to do with Sonny.
Jax: Do you want to tell me what it is?
Carly: You lied to me, and I don't like it any more than you do.
[Knock on door]
Sam: Hi. I think I may have given you my key back.
Jason: Oh, I'll make you another one as -- as soon as possible. How's Kristina?
Sam: Kristina is -- shaky. Alexis and Ric got into a huge fight in front of her and she got really scared.
Jason: Oh, man, that's rough.
Sam: Under the best of circumstances. With Kristina already so withdrawn, I just -- Jason, she sees Ric not as -- as this evil, disgusting pig that we all see him as. She sees him as her dad, her loving father, and it's just sad to me that these -- these girls -- their lives are being torn apart. And it just makes you stop and think and wonder why these adults didn't think for, like, two seconds before they decided to -- before they decided to have kids in the first place.
Elizabeth: Is Lucky around?
Officer: He signed out.
Elizabeth: Is it ok if I wait?
Ric: Elizabeth? What are you doing here -- not that I'm complaining.
Elizabeth: I just need to see Lucky.
Ric: Oh. I guess he must be out on a call. There's no telling when he's going to be back. Do you -- you want to leave him a note?
Elizabeth: Uh -- yeah, that would probably be best.
Ric: Yeah, I'll just get a pen, then.
Elizabeth: Ric, what's wrong?
Lulu: What happened with Georgie?
Dillon: Let's focus on the mystery, ok?
Lulu: Oh, it's that bad?
Dillon: Lulu, seriously, I'm going to walk away from this if you don't drop it.
Lulu: Ok, all right. Touchy, touchy.
Dillon: Ok. What do you -- what do you want to do next?
Lulu: Well, I want to go back to the Scorpio attic and walk through the murder again, then come up with a list of names of people who would want Rick Webber dead.
Monica: Uh -- change in plans. Your friend is going to have to find someplace else to stay.
Lulu: Wait, you just -- but you just said that he could stay here.
Monica: Well, I reconsidered. Tracy made some valid points. He is affiliated with mob activities, and he is the cause of tension between Jason and Alcazar, and that could cause problems for us that we don't need -- and that includes you, Lulu. So I'd appreciate it if you would leave -- immediately.
Spinelli: Oh -- oh, hold on, regal one. Just give me a chance --
Lulu: No, don't beg. We'll find you another place. Thank you for absolutely nothing, Monica.
Dillon: Uh -- what just happened?
Tracy: Yeah. What was that all about, "O regal one"? You were all set to have that boy stay here, if only to torture me. Why the sudden change of heart?
Monica: Guess what -- this is my house, and I don't owe you or anybody else an explanation of what I choose to do with it.
Carly: I stopped by Kellyís to pick up takeout.
Jax: Oh, and you saw me talking with a woman and -- you're jealous.
Jax: You're jealous, that's it.
Carly: I'm not so insecure that I'm going to think you're cheating on me every time you talk to another woman.
Carly: I'm upset because you weren't honest with me.
Carly: You said you had a business call, you implied that you were going downtown to a meeting, and from the way I could see it, you and that woman were not talking about corporate takeover strategy. So what is going on?
Jax: Hmm. You know, I really -- I really like it when you're territorial.
Carly: You're not going to flirt your way out of this.
Jax: Ok, ok.
Carly: Something is going on and I want you to be honest with me. What's going on?
Jax: Ok. It turns out Jerry's in more trouble than he can handle, and he called me and asked me for help.
Carly: You know it's a diversion. He is trying to lure you away so you can't marry me.
Jax: Well, it's possible. He's not exactly a big fan maybe -- maybe this is his way of trying to save me -- which is why I hired a very experienced investigator to -- to, you know, rescue him out of his mess.
Carly: That other woman?
Jax: Yeah. You know, Jerry will be more receptive to take help from a woman. That's just the way my brother is.
Carly: Ok. So what if Jerry has gotten himself involved in something only you can save him from?
Jax: Well, he's my brother. I mean, if his life is on the line, then I'll have to go after him.
Carly: Then we may have a pretty big problem.
Jason: I'll never tell you what to do, or how to live. I made that mistake once, and I'm not going to make it again. The risks you take are up to you. So it is your decision if -- if you want to share my life.
Sam: Yes. I mean, of course. I'll always want that.
Jason: Ok, but do you want to take those risks for your children?
Sam: Ok, look, when -- when I see what Alexis is going through and the way Kristina and Molly are hurting, no. I -- I do not want my child to hurt like that. Although, I don't think that you and I would ever tear our family apart like that. I don't see us fighting like that. I truly believe that you and I would be good, loving parents. But until you believe it, then I -- I don't think I should get pregnant. I feel like it should be something that we need to do together.
Jason: Ok. Thank you.
Sam: There is one catch, though.
Jason: There usually is a catch.
Sam: Come here. I intend on changing your mind.
Georgie: Hey, Mike.
Georgie: I am so sorry I'm late. I'm sorry.
Mike: No problem, no problem, no rush. Look, why don't you just relax for a couple of minutes before you start your shift.
Mike: Yeah, really. It's all right.
Georgie: Thank you, thanks. Hey.
Maxie: Hey. Sit.
Georgie: I'm sorry, Maxie, I didn't see you.
Maxie: I noticed. How are things with Dillon?
Georgie: I don't really want to talk about it.
Maxie: I'm sorry if he's being a jerk. But the truth is if he can't see how much better you are than Lulu, then he doesn't deserve you.
Georgie: Thanks. But, you know, sometimes it's not about who's better or worse. Sometimes no matter how hard you try, you just can't make it work.
Maxie: Georgie, it's a balancing act. The trick is to figure out how long to hold on, and when to let go -- like Lucky and me. I was about to give up on him, but I'm really glad I didn't, because I just realized I have a chance to turn this whole thing around.
Elizabeth: Ric, is something wrong?
Ric: You know what? I was just thinking that so much paperwork goes across these desks that a note might get lost. Why don't you just call him, leave Lucky a message on his cell phone.
Elizabeth: Ok, I'll do that -- in addition to leaving him a note.
Ric: Elizabeth, you don't -- you don't want to do that, ok?
Elizabeth: Ric, let me open the drawer.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Carly: Now, you're willing to drop everything to go chasing after Jerry?
Jax: Jerry is my brother, ok?
Carly: And Sonny is the father of my children.
Elizabeth: You're using again.
Lucky: These pills aren't mine.
Elizabeth: Stay away from us.
Lucky: Don't forget I'm the dad of that baby you're carrying.
