Woman: How old is your son?

Nikolas: 10 months.

Woman: Oh.

Nikolas: Yeah, I admit, I'm guilty of being somewhat of an overprotective parent.

Woman: Oh.

Emily: He actually took a paternity leave from his job.

Woman: Oh.

[Emily laughs]

Woman: How progressive.

Emily: Yeah. He's been at home with me and the baby just bonding like crazy.

Nikolas: I'm already experiencing separation anxiety. So if you don't mind, we just want -- we just want to ask a few questions, maybe take a look around before we decide if this is the right place for our son.

Woman: I don't mind at all.

Nikolas: Okay.

Jason: I don't know where you're going with this, but -- I mean, any truth you're holding on to this tightly to the point of your obvious stress, it can't be good for the baby. So if you think it'll help to tell me whatever it is, you know I'll do whatever I can for you.

Elizabeth: I don't know why I didn't tell you months ago.

[Knock on door]

Lucky: Jason, it's Lucky. Open up.

Ric: Alexis, don't drag this into court, okay? You're not going to win. The minute that I prove that you're a jilted wife who lets her mobster-loving daughter have free reign with her two little sisters, there's not a judge in the country who is not going to give me full custody of Molly. You'll be lucky if I don't get Kristina, as well.

Alexis: You have a lot of skeletons in the closet, Ric. I don't want to have to drag them out.

Ric: All right, fine. You know what? Whatever it takes. You want to get down in the mud with me? Be prepared. Because I know how to sling it.

Sam: Hey, that is enough, Ric. Leave my mother alone.

Sonny: You kill me, Jason's going to kill you. You are never going to get away with this.

Lorenzo: You know, you're forgetting one thing. The D.A. is in my pocket. So after you are dead, Ric will arrest Jason for something. It really doesn't matter what it is. The point is your avenger will be out of commission.

Sonny: You going to bet the house on my brother? You're a bigger fool than I thought you were.

Lorenzo: No. I'm out of options.

Milo: Oh, Mrs. C, you can't go in there.

Carly: Watch me.

Lorenzo: You decided to attack me when I have nothing to lose.

Sonny: That's not true. You have a baby, you have Skye.

Carly: Sonny, I --

Sonny: Carly, you got to get out now. No, no. No, no. Honey, go out the back.

Milo: Carly, Sonny!

Man: Someone's been shot! Call 911!

Milo: Back, back, back.

Emily: My husband and I are lucky enough to have jobs that allowed us some time off after the baby was born.

Woman: Hmm.

Emily: But now we have to get back to work and --

[Woman chuckles]

Emily: We just wanted to make sure that he's somewhere safe.

Woman: Of course.

Nikolas: And we were also hoping that he gets some sort of socialization. Do you have any other children his age?

Woman: We usually don't start children that young involved in play as much as under supervised care. But we did just start one little boy. He's 10 months, too. His mother works here. And maybe there's something --

[Fire alarm]

Woman: That can be -- that's the fire alarm.

Nikolas: Yeah -- um --

Woman: We need to get the children to the exits as quickly as possible. Will you help?

Emily: Of course.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Woman: Girls -- come to the hallway with me.

Emily: Come on.

Woman: Come on, sweetie. Come on. Can you come around here? Okay. We're just going to go outside really quickly here. Come on, girl. That's great.

Tracy: Ah, just the person I was looking for. You and I need to have a chat.

Lulu: I'm kind of busy at the moment.

Tracy: Well, make time.

Lulu: All right, I have not been stealing Edward’s Bentley, I haven't been taking money out of your wallet, so I really don't know what you could possibly have to complain about.

Tracy: Let's start with the project you involved Dillon in, and how it affects Monica.

Lulu: I don't know what you're talking about.

Tracy: Monica has never been a particularly involved parent. And suddenly, she's involved herself in your problem. She's reporting to me that you're hanging out with the wrong type of people, and she even suggested that I send you out of state to college. Which, I might add, is not a bad idea, since you took off with Jason in order to find --

Lulu: Oh, okay, first of all, I did not take off with Jason, okay? He asked for my help, and I gave it to him. And the only reason I didn't tell you guys when it was happening is because Jason is such a loaded subject for this family. So I figured the easiest way and the way that would save the most time is to just go with him and then explain on the back end.

Tracy: Wow. That was a brilliant attempt at deflection. However, it would work on the other members of the family, not me, because I don't find Jason a consuming topic of discussion. He is a violent criminal, which is why it is so alarming that he would ask your help in anything.

Lulu: Jason wanted me to help him find Spinelli. We found him, we came home. I haven't even seen Jason since.

Tracy: So he's not involved in this project of yours with Dillon?

Lulu: Okay, Dillon and I live in the same house and we attend the same college. It's not that unusual that we would be hanging out. And it doesn't necessarily mean that he's helping me with a project.

Tracy: You are working overtime to cover up something. And do I need to remind you that the last time you did that, you came up pregnant? So this time, I'm going to intervene on your behalf before disaster strikes. You tell me now exactly what is going on with you and Dillon.

Lulu: I don't have to. You're not my mother.

Patrick: This DUI in cubicle two -- this guy's lucky he only met up with a concussion after that accident.

Epiphany: This guy is lucky that he's got any liver left at all.

Patrick: You know Joe Evans?

Epiphany: He was in here the other night finding out the baby that his wife was having wasn't his.

Patrick: Obviously took it hard.

Epiphany: Well, not as hard as he hit that bottle.

Patrick: Yeah, well, it's not the first time. This guy's got a decision to make. It's either rehab or an early grave.

Epiphany: You know, in my experience, men make bad choices about three things. Women, alcohol, and mailing checks.

Alan: Hey, you.

Patrick: Hey.

Alan: I'm surprised to see you.

Patrick: Yeah, well, I work here, don't I?

Alan: Yeah, I know, but you just finished a shift. What'd you do, sign up for another one?

Patrick: It's actually more relaxing than the alternative. Speaking of which, if you happen to see Robin, I'm not here.

Alan: Too late.

Robin: Hi. What are you still doing here? We're supposed to go sofa shopping tonight.

Sonny: Ambulance is on its way. You -- you check Alcazar before he came in?

Milo: Yeah, absolutely. He -- he was clean.

Sonny: Okay. Go out there and make sure everybody's calmed down. Whew.

Carly: Wow.

Sonny: No, no, no, no, no. No, no. Leave that for the cops. Forensics is going to find one set of prints. It's going to be Alcazar's. You start mixing around in there, they're going to think we're covering up something.

Carly: You know what this is leading to?

Sonny: Yes, I do. If Alcazar dies, Ric is going to pin a murder charge on me.

Sam: Come on, get out. Get out, or I'm not going to be responsible --

Ric: You want to get physical with me again, Sam?

Alexis: Guys, stop it!

Ric: I'm sorry; did you miss the part where she's moving me around like a puppet here?

Alexis: I know, Ric. Nothing is ever your fault. You know what? Take this to court. You can sling mud at me to your heart's content. Yeah, unfortunately, I think it's only going to make you lose Molly for good. But you need to go.

Ric: Well, what's -- something's -- something's different about you. I don't know what it is.

Alexis: Ric, just go.

Sam: Come on, you heard my mother. Get out.

Ric: Yeah, yeah, okay --

Sam: Go, or I'm going to call the police!

Ric: Okay, all right. Take it easy.

Sam: Use that in your custody trial.

Sam: Come on, sit down.

Alexis: No. He knows. He knows! I wish you never brought the stuff over in the first place.

Jason: What's going on?

Lucky: Lorenzo Alcazar's claiming that you and Sonny are staging rAIDS in his warehouses.

Jason: Oh. Maybe business is bad and Alcazar needs an excuse to claim some insurance money. It is Christmas.

Lucky: Whatever. The point is the department would like to stop this before an all-out war breaks out.

Jason: Don't know anything that can help you.

Lucky: Okay, look -- I don't want to be here looking for ways to put you in prison. Your job description aside, you just saved Elizabeth and our baby's life. But understand, I do have a job to do.

[Phone rings]

Lucky: Spencer. Where? I'm on my way. Alcazar just got shot in the head. Guess who was holding the gun? I'm sure I'll be in touch.

Elizabeth: I'll give Lucky time to get out of the building, and then I'll go, because I know you want to get to Sonny.

Jason: Yeah, no, I do and I will, but first, tell me why you thought you had to hide from Lucky.

Elizabeth: I don't want to hold you up. If Sonny's in trouble --

Jason: No, if Sonny shot Alcazar and the cops know about it, they're taking him in. All he can do is call his lawyer. All I can do is show up. And I will, okay? After I know what's going on with you.

Elizabeth: I just -- I thought I made a decision about something, and I wanted you to know, but I changed my mind. Probably had something to do with hearing Lucky's voice.

Jason: I don't understand.

Elizabeth: Of course you don’t. Why would you? I'm not even making sense to myself. I -- I've been considering taking Lucky back.

Jason: Okay.

Elizabeth: I mean, it's not that simple, you know? With his whole drug addiction and his affair with Maxie. The fact is I lost my faith in him, and it hasn't recovered.

Jason: Then why would you go back to him?

Elizabeth: My instinct to take care of him. I don't know, but I -- I guess I've got to let that go and just let him take care of himself. And when I look at it from my children's perspective, it's very clear what I have to do. I'm sorry I bothered you.

Jason: No, you -- you can come to me anytime. Even if I don't always understand why.

Elizabeth: You listen to me, and that gives me clarity.

Jason: I'll walk down with you.

Sam: Hey. Hey, hey, hey, I am not the enemy here, Alexis. You need me. Whether you want to admit it or not, you do. And it goes both ways, okay? You stood by me when I shot Diego. And as sick as you were, you stood up for me in court, and you nearly collapsed. Which is the one thing that got to the single shred of decency that Ric has left to get him to drop the charges.

Alexis: I think you're giving him way too much credit for -- for his humanity. He knew he wouldn't win the case.

Sam: Okay, but still, I -- I thank you. Come on. I am touched, and I think I am -- I am, like, the most grateful that I've ever been in my entire life. And I know there's a lot of water under the bridge between us, and I want to start patching it up, so stop being so difficult!

Alexis: I'm sorry --

Sam: I'm sorry if you didn't like my methods by pushing him, but --

Alexis: It worked. It worked. It worked.

Sam: Okay.

Alexis: I -- I should have thanked you, rather than jumping down your throat. I'm sorry. I apologize. The truth is, is that I'm --

Sam: You freaked.

Alexis: Yes --

Sam: Yes, you freaked. You didn't want him to find the marijuana while he's in the middle rant about finding a reason to get you in -- in court with a custody trial. I know.

Alexis: Well, I'm just going to get rid of it. I'm -- I -- I just shouldn't use it anymore.

Sam: Well, you know, I -- I would just think about it before you make any rash decisions, especially if it's influenced by Ric. I am going to go.

Alexis: Sam? Thank you.

Sam: Sure.

Tracy: Lulu, listen to me. Your mother is unfortunately too ill to give you guidance. Your father has taken off again, and that leaves me. You would not have had to go through what you went through last summer if you had been properly supervised.

Lulu: Oh. It is not your fault that I got pregnant. There's nothing that you could have done that would have stopped me from lying and sleeping with Dillon. It would have been nice if the condoms had worked, so yeah, I supposed that is your fault.

Tracy: I am worried about you.

Lulu: Don't be. I'm fine.

Tracy: Yeah, Lulu, I was fine. Every time my father ignored me and I pulled some crazy-ass stunt to get his attention, I was always fine.

Lulu: Okay, if you're implying that I'm mad at my dad for leaving, I'm not. But I know that you are.

Tracy: Really?

Lulu: Well, yeah, I don't -- I mean, I don't blame you for it, but I get why he did what he did. My mom's recovery was only temporary, and she wanted to get married, so he married her. But it wasn't legal. And he did all that just to stay married to you, so that should count for something.

Tracy: Hmm. Yeah, well, your dad's a complicated man.

Lulu: It's not about the money, if that's what you're thinking.

Tracy: Are you trying to console me?

Lulu: I'm just -- I'm saying, you know, whatever goes on with you and my dad, he cares about you. And leaving this time is because my mom's in Shadybrook. He's running away from her, not you.

Tracy: That was a brilliant diversion. But you still haven't answered my question.

Lulu: Tracy, I am not sleeping with Dillon. I'm not getting stoned with Spinelli, okay? I'm trying to get a connection with my mom, so I'm asking questions, and I'm doing research. And yes, Dillon and Spinelli are helping me, but that's it.

Tracy: No, it's not. But I hope that whatever it is that you are up to helps you miss Laura a little less. Because it is hard to lose your mother.

Lulu: Thank you, step-- Tracy. Thank you.

Robin: Oh, let me show you. I found this website called nothingbutsofas.com. And I think I found the perfect sofa.

Patrick: Are you kidding me? I'm working right here. Then just order it.

Robin: You don't just order a sofa, you -- you feel it, you experience it. You have to touch the seven points of comfort.

Patrick: The what?

Robin: Come on, we have 45 minutes to make the sale.

Patrick: Okay, well, then you better hurry. Go sit, see, feel, do all your seven points. If you find something, just send me a bill. I'm working.

Robin: No, you don't have to work right now. The E.R. is fully staffed.

Patrick: A little voice in my head says I shouldn't leave.

Robin: You have a little voice?

Patrick: Yes, and it never fails me. And right now, it's telling me there'll be repercussions in the E.R. if I leave.

Robin: You just don't want to do this with me. Why not?

Alan: Paramedics just picked up a head trauma, hemorrhaging from a gunshot wound.

Patrick: Great, thank you. What did I tell you? Now, you may be needed on this, so your little seven points are going to have to wait.

Robin: For now.

Det. Rodriguez: Alcazar's?

Sonny: Here's mine, Rodriguez.

Carly: It was self-defense. Tell him.

Det. Rodriguez: Save it. No matter what happened here, Sonny's still going downtown.

Carly: It was self-defense.

Sonny: Carly, Carly --

Carly: Did you hear what I said?

Sonny: Don't -- you don't -- Carly --

Det. Rodriguez: Don't worry. You're going to get your chance to be heard. You're going down to the station, too.

Sam: Jason?

Sam: Jason?

Elizabeth: Hey.

Epiphany: Oh, thanks for coming in. We're going to have a full house tonight.

Elizabeth: Sure. I'm glad to work. It gives me something to focus on.

Epiphany: As opposed to?

Elizabeth: I don't know -- I'm just second-guessing everything right now, including myself.

Epiphany: Well, my advice -- make a decision and stick to it.

Elizabeth: Oh, gee, you make it sound so easy.

Epiphany: Believe it or not, it is.

Elizabeth: Okay, but what -- what if the choice I make ends up damaging somebody beyond repair?

Epiphany: People are responsible for their own damage. Come down on one side or the other, and then get on with your life.

Elizabeth: Okay. Is there anything going on here I should know about?

Epiphany: Remember the guy from the other night who wound up with his best friend's baby instead of his own?

Elizabeth: Joe Evans?

Epiphany: He's in the E.R. DUI into a phone booth. I thought maybe you'd want to say something to him.

Elizabeth: Like what?

Epiphany: Like what you would want someone to say to Lucky if your situation had turned out reversed.

[Elizabeth gasps]

Lulu: Hey. Mom, it's me. Um -- I'm sorry that I -- I haven't been by to see you very much recently, but I've been -- I've been working on proving your innocence. Um -- Dillon and I, we -- we turned up a major clue recently. We found Rick Webber’s datebook. I mean, it must have been in his pocket that night. And anyway, it has these two phone numbers written in it over and over. It's like instead of writing the person's name, he wrote the phone number of the person that he was supposed to meet up with, which, already there, looks real suspicious. And -- and Monica is actually looking really guilty. She's -- she's threatening to send me off to college and out of state. And she's already sicced the stepwitch on -- I shouldn't call her that. I mean, Tracy is a witch most of the time, but she is -- she's weirdly empathetic. She knows what it's like to lose a mother. But you're not completely lost. That's why this has to work. So you can come back.

Skye: Alan? I was notified that Lorenzo's been hurt?

Alan: Skye, we don't know much about the circumstances, but he's got a gunshot wound to his head.

Skye: Oh, my --

Patrick: What do we got?

Skye: Lorenzo, honey -- sweetheart, it's me. It's Skye. Can you hear me?

Alan: We need to get him to a room.

Skye: What -- he's going to be okay, isn't he? What -- what happened? Where -- where was he?

Paramedic: In the coffee shop, down by the docks. Sonny Corinthos was arrested.

Patrick: Let's go.

Alan: Let's go.

Skye: Are you telling me that Sonny intended to murder this man out in the open?

Alan: Sky, Skye, Skye –

Ric: Huh. Well, look who's here.

Lucky: Are you surprised?

Ric: Oh, mildly. Sonny hasn't even been brought in yet. How did Jason know to come? That is, unless he had something to do with Alcazar's shooting and he just managed to conveniently flee the scene.

Lucky: I was questioning Jason when I got the call.

Ric: That's too bad. That means he's got an alibi. It also means he has no business to be around here trying to obstruct justice.

Carly: Thank God you're here.

Jason: Okay, don't --

Carly: This is bad, okay?

Jason: Don't say -- don't say another word.

Ric: Well, well. What have we got?

Det. Rodriguez: We got one shot fired from Mr. Corinthos' gun into Lorenzo Alcazar's head. The paramedics aren't sure he'll make it.

Ric: Nice of you to kill him so openly. Makes it a lot easier for me to get a murder charge to stick.

Carly: You know what, Ric? As usual, you don't know what the hell you're talking about. Sonny shot Alcazar in self-defense, and I saw the whole thing.

Woman: Okay.

Fireman: We've checked the entire building. There's no sign of fire, or even smoke.

Woman: Oh. Maybe the system is faulty.

Fireman: No, an alarm was pulled in the backroom. Is everyone safe and accounted for?

Woman: Yes, except for my new assistant and her baby son.

Fireman: Well, maybe they left before anything happened. I'll leave you to sort it out. But give me a call if you can't find her.

Woman: Oh, thank you.

Nikolas: Excuse me.

Woman: Hmm?

Nikolas: I'm sorry, how -- how old did you say your assistant's son was?

Woman: 10 months, same as your little boy. He was just there in that exersaucer, and --

Nikolas: Wait a minute.

Woman: Then I --

Nikolas: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Emily: Yeah. Colleen saw us, she pulled the alarm, and she ran.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Woman: I'm sorry. You lost me.

Nikolas: Is -- is this your assistant and her little boy? She's a redhead here, but we think she may have died her hair.

Woman: Who are you?

Nikolas: Just -- just tell me if that's her.

Woman: I'm going to have to ask you to leave, now.

Emily: No, please. Listen, we don't have any time. We haven't been completely honest with you.

Woman: That's becoming clear!

Nikolas: This child your assistant claims is her own is my kidnapped son. And I need you to help me get him back.

Sam's voice: I need you to tell me --

Elizabeth: I didn't realize you'd be here.

Elizabeth: You stay away from me.

Mateo: There's no reason to be afraid. I'm Mateo -- Father Mateo Ruiz. Manny was my twin.

[Elizabeth sighs]

Mateo: But our lives took very different paths.

Elizabeth: This is a twisted game.

Mateo: Check me out. I work as a youth minister at Queen of Angels. Well, it's obvious from your reaction that you knew Manny.

Elizabeth: Well, your sadistic and deranged brother -- he kidnapped me twice.

Mateo: I'm sorry for any pain he may have caused you.

Elizabeth: "Pain"? You have no idea how I suffered because of him.

Woman: Father Ruiz, I'm so glad you're still here. My Billy’s been asking for you. He's afraid you won't forgive him.

Mateo: It's not my forgiveness Billy should be seeking.

Woman: I realize you've already done so much for him. You must feel like your efforts have been for nothing.

Mateo: At your son's age, it's easy to be lead astray. But underneath, Billy’s a good kid. I'll be right there.

Woman: Thank you, Father.

Mateo: I'll keep you and the baby that you're carrying in my prayers.

Jason: Carly's got nothing to say without an attorney.

Carly: I don't need an attorney. I didn't do anything wrong, and neither did Sonny.

Ric: Well, I have a victim in the emergency room who would beg to differ. Alcazar is fighting for his life as we speak.

Carly: And that's his own damn fault. He walked into the office, and Sonny was there minding his own business, and he wanted to kill Sonny.

Ric: Oh, what a surprise. You're defending Sonny.

Carly: I was there! I told you, Ric.

Ric: So you saw everything?

Jason: Carly --

Carly: Yes!

Ric: You were there when Alcazar arrived?

Jason: Don't -- that's it, don't say another word.

Ric: No, no, no, no, no --

Jason: Don't say another word.

Ric: No, Carly witnessed a crime. She has to make a statement, Jason.

Diane: Carly has nothing further to say at this time, and neither does Mr. Corinthos. And I assume everyone is clear on that.

Ric: I have a right to get a statement from a self-proclaimed witness here who said she saw a shooting. Why don't you make Mrs. Corinthos here comfortable in the interrogation room?

Diane: You will do no such thing. Mrs. Corinthos is understandably emotional and is in no condition to make a statement at this time. Immediate access to her is denied.

Ric: I see. On what grounds?

Diane: Civil rights violation.

Ric: Huh!

Diane: When Carly calms down, we'll get all the facts.

Ric: Facts, or cover stories.

Diane: Carly is free to go.

Jason: Let's go.

Carly: I don't need to go.

Jason: Let's go.

Diane: And I assume you'll also be releasing my client?

Ric: No, I don't think so.

Diane: Well, then you think again. According to the preliminary reports, Mr. Corinthos was acting in self-defense. That is a correct assumption, isn't it?

Sonny: Absolutely.

Skye: I'm not sure how long I'm going to be. Yeah, they haven't given me any real answers yet, so just feed Lila Rae at the usual time. Tell her Mommy loves her, and that -- Mommy and Daddy will both be home to see her as soon as they can. Okay. Please don't tell me that Lorenzo's condition is as serious as you both look.

Patrick: The bullet fragmented. There's pieces of it lodged in Mr. Alcazar's brain.

Skye: Oh, my God.

Robin: He is still hemorrhaging as a result. He needs surgery.

Patrick: Look, I'm not going to lie to you. It's not going to be easy, but if I go in now, I can remove the shrapnel and save him.

Skye: That's -- that's good, right?

Alan: I'm sorry, I have to disagree. You go in while he's so unstable, you could make things worse.

Skye: How much worse?

Alan: One wrong move could kill him.

Alexis: Hey! Look who's here. Did you guys have a good time?

Viola: Kristina saw a kitten she liked.

Alexis: No kidding?

Viola: She said it was very pretty.

Alexis: She did?

Viola: Oh, no, honey. They'll just spoil your appetite.

Kristina: Mommy's hungry.

Alexis: Oh -- huh. Thank you for taking such good care of me. Can I have a hug with that?

Viola: And I brought something for dinner.

Alexis: You did?

Viola: Mm-hmm.

Alexis: How fabulous is that? Because -- ooh, I would like nothing more than to sit down with my girls and have a nice, big meal, because that's what families do, right? And we're a family, mm-hmm. And I'm going to do whatever I can to keep it that way.

Robin: With no next of kin, you being the mother of Mr. Alcazar's child, that leaves you to make the decision.

[Skye sighs]

Skye: I don't know what to do. Any advice?

Robin: All I can tell you is that Patrick is an excellent surgeon with a very high success rate.

Skye: Well, how can he take such an opposing point of view to Alan’s?

Robin: Let's ask them. Excuse me. Skye is a bit confused. She would like you to clarify your opposing positions.

[Alan sighs]

Alan: Lorenzo is still hemorrhaging. I think that we should go in through the existing point of entry, drain the blood, get the pressure off the brain, and then extract the shrapnel later on.

Patrick: Which not only requires a second invasive affront on the brain, it also gives time for the shrapnel to work its way into the tissue, risking irreparable damage to the nerve endings and the motor function sites. I'll remove the shrapnel and the blood together.

Skye: But both procedures have been successful?

Patrick: Yes, but my way, Mr. Alcazar will make a full recovery.

Alan: Or none at all.

Patrick: Look, it's up to you. What do you think the father of your child would risk? Death or disability?

Ric: You know, Alexis is going to be disappointed in you. You're not really drawing the best press for a character witness in a custody trial.

Diane: May I suggest that we stick to the conversation at hand? Otherwise, I might be forced to interpret your position as biased, influenced by past differences with my client. Now, are you going to release Mr. Corinthos, or do I take this to a judge?

Ric: Okay, I'll release Sonny for now. But please advise your client not to leave town, because doing so will subject him to immediate arrest.

[Diane chuckles]

Diane: Mr. Corinthos isn't running anywhere. He has no reason to. There's nothing to hide.

Ric: Of course not. I also am going to need statements from both Sonny and Carly.

Diane: Then contact my office, not my clients. And I'll be happy to make the arrangements.

Sonny: Hey, Ric, I'll see you.

Lucky: You were pretty calm with Sonny's lawyer. You know, I thought you'd put up a much bigger fight to keep him in lockup.

Ric: Well, I'm not going to let Sonny get off on a technicality. I'm going to let the truth fry my brother this time.

Lucky: What about Carly?

Ric: She's our star witness.

Carly: Jason, why are you treating me like the enemy?

Jason: Why don't you ever listen to me?

Carly: I'm not going to stand there and be quiet while Ric frames Sonny for murder.

[Jason sighs]

Carly: What is your problem?

Jason: Something about this whole scenario doesn't make any sense.

Carly: It makes perfect sense. Alcazar shows up to kill Sonny, and Sonny defends himself.

Jason: Okay, stop right there. I spoke to Milo. He swears to me that Alcazar was unarmed. He searched him. That means that the gun was already planted somewhere in the coffeehouse.

Carly: Why does that surprise you? Lorenzo planned ahead!

Jason: What would make Alcazar so desperate to try to pull something off like this?

Carly: Because he assumed his friend Ric would get him off.

Jason: Okay, he's not that naive to put his trust into Ric in the first place. Something is going on here we don't know about.

Carly: The only thing we need to worry about is how to get Sonny from underneath these trumped-up murder charges, and I was trying to do that when you dragged me out of there!

Jason: Just -- you know what? You've done more than enough. And you're already going to have to back up everything you said.

Carly: And I will. I know what I saw.

Jason: And what was that? Did you actually see Alcazar aiming the gun at Sonny? Did you see Alcazar's finger on the trigger?

Carly: No, but --

Jason: Well, why not? You were there.

Carly: I walked in, Alcazar turned around, and --

Jason: And -- and what?

Carly: All I saw was Sonny shoot Alcazar in the head.

Woman: Why should I trust either of you? You've already lied to me.

Emily: Just give us the benefit of the doubt. Assume that we're telling you the truth now.

Nikolas: Look, how will it look to people who entrusted their children to you when it comes out that you hired a babynapper?

Woman: I don't like your tone.

Nikolas: My to-- my to-- you know, we're just going to keep going around in circles here, so I'll just --

Woman: What are you doing?

Nikolas: I'll prove it to you. Port Charles, New York, police department, please. Thank you. Ask for Lucky Spencer. He's my brother. He's been working on the case since my son was taken on Christmas Eve.

Woman: Is Detective Spencer there?

Officer: Line one.

Ric: You better get that.

Lucky: Detective Spencer.

Woman: My name is Nancy Milford, and I run a daycare center in Denver. I'm standing here with a Nikolas Cassadine, who claims --

Lucky: Does my brother have a lead on Spencer’s kidnapper?

Nancy: Yes, he does. I'm it. I'll be giving him all the information he needs to help find her.

Colleen: We're just going to grab a few things and get back on the road. And this time, Nikolas and nasty old Emily won't ever find us, I promise. Colleen's still got a few tricks up her sleeve.

[Colleen gasps]

Skye: You hounded and hunted me. Forced your way into my life. Gave me a baby I never thought I could have. Made me feel things that I never wanted to feel in my life. So you don't get to do all those things and bail on me, do you hear me? You do not get to die. And if you can't be the strong one, then I will be the strong one. I have to act on your behalf, make the decision that you would want. That's exactly what I'm going to do. I will not let you be less than what you were.

Skye: Okay. We do it your way.

Patrick: I'll get it started.

Sam: Elizabeth --

Elizabeth: Yes?

Sam: I've been walking around the building trying to decide if I really want to get into this with you.

Elizabeth: Into what?

Sam: Say nothing. I'm talking now. As I was saying, I was walking around the building trying to decide if I wanted to get into this, and you know what? I just can't hide my feelings the way you do.

Elizabeth: What in the world are you talking about?

Sam: You left this behind when you were in my home tonight -- which happens to be a little too often for my taste. But that's another conversation. Right now, you can answer one -- okay, maybe two questions. What do you want with Jason this time? Or do I already know?

Officer: Sorry, ma'am, this is a crime scene.

Diane: Is forensics finished?

Officer: Yes.

Diane: Then so are you. Unless there was something else.

Officer: No, ma'am.

Diane: All right, then.

Sonny: You really are good.

Diane: Oh, please. That's the easy stuff compared to what comes next. Given the fact that you've been previously tried for shooting Alcazar, if he dies, your self-defense plea is on very thin ice. Unless Carly can really back it up.

Carly: Okay, fine. Fine, I didn't see everything exactly, but I'll say I did. I'll say I walked in and I saw Alcazar pull his gun to shoot Sonny, but Sonny shot him first.

Sonny: Carly came in behind Alcazar. She interfered, and gave me that split second to defend myself.

Diane: So Carly has already lied to the D.A.?

Jason: Forensics is probably already turning in their report. If Ric can prove that you're lying, you could be the reason Sonny gets convicted.

Sonny: What I need from you is to make sure that Carly never gets called as a witness for the prosecution.

Jason: There's only one way to keep Ric from calling you to the stand and having you make his case for him.

Carly: No. No, absolutely not.

Diane: Sonny, there is very little I can do here. Carly isn't protected by any legal privilege. I mean, it's not as if the two of you were still husband and wife.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Emily: Are you prepared to use the gun with Spencer in the room?

Nikolas: I'm getting my son back, Emily.

Robin: Patrick's the best.

Patrick: Ladies and gentlemen, let's rock 'n' roll.

Sam: From now on, leave Jason alone.

Jason: The only way to keep from testifying against Sonny is to marry him.

Carly: I'm not going to do it.
