Sam: Okay, I know I should probably wait a little longer, but the suspense is causing a lot of stress, and stress isn't good for pregnancy. So I figured, why not take the test and remove any doubt, right?

Jason: But you haven't taken it.

Sam: Yeah, I know, because I got busy and the phone rang, and I -- I'm lying. Okay. I know it's going to sound silly, but I figured that as long as I don't take the test, we could still be having a baby.

Det. Rodriguez: If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided to you by the court of law. Do you understand the rights I just read to you?

Man: Yeah.

Det. Rodriguez: You want to take over this guy and I'll take care of the evidence?

Lucky: You think I'm going to steal the evidence, go back on pills?

[Music plays]

Epiphany: That's it. Your last round of chemo is finally over.

Alexis: No brass band?

Epiphany: Huh. The other patients tend to complain. I know how you feel. You want to jump up, look down from -- shout from the rooftops "Hallelujah" -- just as soon as you're finished throwing up.

Alexis: You could write a how-to book on how to stay perky through chemo.

Epiphany: Hmm.

Alexis: Listen, I know you've gone through this yourself, you know what it's like to have this poison pumped through your body. And I am relieved that this is my last one.

Alexis: It is my last one, isn't it?

Sonny: Carly didn't show up and give a statement because we're married now. And -- which means she can't be compelled to testify.

Ric: Yeah, well, the case against you is still going forward.

Sonny: Give it your best shot, Ric.

Ric: That's right, I will, Sonny, I will. But right now, this takes priority.

Sonny: A subpoena?

Ric: That's right. I'm calling you to testify in Molly's custody hearing. Alexis and I are going to court in a few days, and you are going to help me get my daughter back.

Sonny: How many times have we gone over this, Ric? I get up on the stand, I'm going to make you look even worse than you already do.

Ric: Because you think a father's right to his child is inviolable except when it comes to me?

Sonny: Yeah.

Ric: Okay. So you're more focused on getting back at me than -- than doing what's best for Molly?

Sonny: A child Molly's age needs her mother.

Ric: Alexis shows blatant favoritism where Kristina is concerned. My daughter is too young to understand that right now, but eventually she will. And I refuse to let Molly grow up in her own house feeling like an also-ran or that she's not good enough.

Sonny: You make a lot of money, Ric. Why don't you spend it on a shrink instead of inflicting your psychosis on Molly?

Ric: Sonny, you love your daughter just as much as I do. The truth is you would do exactly what I'm doing if you were in my place.

Sonny: I almost got full custody of Kristina. I backed off, remember, for my daughter's sake because I thought that it was better for her to stay with her mother.

Ric: Yeah, well, how benevolent of you. And how many times have you seen Kristina since then? How many excuses has Alexis made to keep the two of you apart, right? And she loves you, she hates me.

Sonny: Well, of course.

Ric: Okay. Alexis won't compromise, Sonny, and neither will I. So you better be prepared to get up on that stand and testify about the chronic threat that you pose to both Kristina and to Molly, okay?

Diane: Yes, well, we will just see about that.

Ric: Oh. You're a criminal attorney; this is hardly your area of expertise.

Diane: Hmm. It doesn't take much experience in family law to tell you that my client will not be a useful witness.

Ric: Well, I don't expect Sonny to give me any kind of glowing reference as a father, but --

Sonny: First, you go after Alexis' job, now you're going after her daughter while she's fighting cancer? I mean, come on.

Ric: And I expect you to say exactly that when I put you up on that stand.

Diane: Oh! So you're hoping to prove you are a cold-blooded opportunist?

Ric: No, Sonny is going to get up on that stand and he's going to tell about how he and Carly took both Kristina and Molly to live with him in his compound because Alexis was too sick to care for either of her children.

Diane: My client will have nothing to say.

Ric: Fine. Good. Then he can just sit there, while I read all of the police records stating all about the shootings, the car bombings -- about the general mayhem that's a common occurrence in his sort of business. How Sonny is a criminal and a mobster and he has absolutely no business being near my daughter. That alone should get me custody, I think -- especially since Kristina is still traumatized from witnessing the violence that was there because of Alexis' negligence. You are going to help me, Sonny, get my daughter back, whether you like it or not.

Alexis: So what's the prognosis, Doctor?

Dr. Trent: I would've preferred chemo, but we stopped, because at this point, your body can't take any more.

Alexis: So whatever is killing the cancer is also sucking the life out of me.

Dr. Trent: Look, I know you considered alternative forms of treatment.

Alexis: Yeah, I said the chemo would be worse than the cancer. I hate it when I'm right all the time.

Dr. Trent: Yeah, I -- chemo's no fun, but it works. You're living proof.

Alexis: Hmm, a bald, vomiting mass huddled on the sofa is not a ringing endorsement for the chemo. And I must tell you, Doc, that anti-nausea medication is highly overrated.

Dr. Trent: You just need time to rest.

Alexis: And then I'm going to do this whole thing all over again.

Epiphany: Doctor, won't you need more tests before you'll know?

Dr. Trent: We'll continue this tomorrow.

Alexis: So much for the brass band.

Dillon: Still no sign of Monica.

Lulu: Well, what if Monica reads the note that you gave her and tears it up and throws it away?

Dillon: Doubt it.

Lulu: Well -- okay, she's not going to break down and confess, either.

Dillon: Never underestimate the power of guilt, Lulu. If Monica killed Rick Webber or if she knows something about it, then she's going to react. Oh, yeah -- here she comes. Here she comes.

Lulu: She's found the envelope.

Dillon: This is it.

Dillon: Oh, my God! Did you see the look on her face?

Lulu: Well, yeah. Who wouldn't be scared getting an anonymous note accusing you of God knows what and demanding that you appear in an unspecified attic? I mean, instead of breaking this case wide open, I think we scared the prime suspect away, and now we can't prove that my mom didn't kill Rick Webber.

Lucky: If you don't trust me around drugs, then request a different partner.

Det. Rodriguez: I'm just trying to look out for you, Lucky.

Lucky: And I'm clean today.

Det. Rodriguez: Great. But if I see something that could be trouble for you, I'm going to speak up, because that's what partners do -- we cover each other's backs. Now, if you tell me you can handle it, I believe you.

Lucky: I saw the pills. I was tempted, but that's where it ended.

Det. Rodriguez: You sure?

Lucky: I'm not saying I wasn't going to take the pills. I never say never -- it's just another trap. I'm not going to take another pill today. I'm staying clean today.

Elizabeth: Mrs. Millhouse is doing so much better, Dr. Drake is going to let her go home tomorrow.

Epiphany: Oh. That's good news.

[Epiphany sighs]

Elizabeth: You okay?

Epiphany: Of course I'm okay. Is there any reason why I shouldn't be?

Elizabeth: I don't know. It's just -- I don't know.

Epiphany: Look, do me a favor, and instead of looking for something to gossip about, why don't you make yourself useful and cover for me till I get back?

Elizabeth: Of course. Take all the time you need.

Epiphany: Oh -- and by the way? Your grandmother called and said that she can baby-sit for you tomorrow night -- if you want to go out to dinner with Lucky.

Elizabeth: Okay, thanks. I'll call her.

[Epiphany sighs]

Epiphany: Liz? Your personal life is none of my business. But since it's been affecting your work, I have to say something.

Elizabeth: Yeah, go ahead, feel -- say it.

Epiphany: This "going out to dinner with Lucky" thing? If you're being nice to the man so that he'll stay clean, you're not doing him any favors.

Elizabeth: You know I care about him.

Epiphany: Yeah. Well, there's caring, and then there's caring. Just know that going out to dinner with him will give him hope. Just be honest with him and with yourself.

Jason: I'm sorry.

Sam: Hey, what are the chances of getting pregnant on the first time anyway?

Jason: You know the doctor said this could take -- it could take a little time.

Sam: I guess there is one good piece of news in this.

Jason: What's that?

Sam: We get to keep trying.

Jason: Oh, that's okay by me.

Sam: Mm-hmm. And I will hold you to that.

Jason: Mm-hmm.

Sam: Just not now.

Jason: Where are you running?

Sam: Because I have an interview, a job interview.

Jason: Good luck.

Sam: "Good luck." I know I can hardly wait for the background check and all the questions about my past and who I am and why I've never lived in one place more than three months, why I have a misdemeanor arrest in 19 -- wait, I think it's 20 -- 20 states.

Jason: I know -- this whole background-check thing is another reason I'm surprised you stopped working for Edward.

Sam: Well, I told you -- because I only got that job because of you, and I didn't think that was right. Besides, your grandfather was totally playing me. Jason, I want to get a job on my own merit. Even if those merits aren't so spectacular, I'll make up for them.

Jason: You're going to be fine.

Robin: It's totally fine that you sent the couch back. Honestly, I -- I don't take it personally.

Patrick: Good.

Robin's voice: Of course I take it personally -- self-centered jerk.

Patrick: Because I didn't want to upset you. I just -- you know, I wasn't ready to start fixing the place up and -- and decorating and --

Robin: I know.

Patrick's voice: Then why'd you get all domestic on me?

Robin: It's just that I found the couch and I thought that it would look perfect in your place.

Patrick: And it did. It was a really good couch. It's not -- it wasn't about personal taste.

Robin: I get that --

Robin’s voice: Meaning it's your place, not mine.

Robin: It's just that you were taking so long to make up your mind and, honestly, we needed a place to sit.

Patrick: I know. It was a great couch --

Patrick’s voice: With a neon sign saying "I'm moving in."

Patrick: It's just I get a little phobic about things.

Robin's voice: Gee, I hadn't noticed.

Patrick: And I'm sorry I overreacted.

Robin's voice: F.Y.I., it was a piece of furniture. I'm not asking you to marry me.

Patrick: It's just sometimes I get paralyzed by choice.

Robin: Hmm. Well, I mean, it is kind of a big commitment.

Patrick: What is?

Robin: The sofa. I mean, you do have to live with it in your house day in and day out, and if it's, you know, not just right --

Patrick: No, but, see, that's just it -- it was a great couch. Perfect size, classic lines -- a real beauty.

Robin's voice: Please don't tell me you're comparing me to a couch?

Patrick: Stylish but comfortable. It's just --

Robin: Just what?

Patrick: I don't want to live here. I want to go back to the hotel.

Lulu: Whoa. So much for your brilliant plan and that note.

Dillon: Well, I admit it's not the most original plot device, but sometimes a screenplay can be too clever for its own good. What matters is if it's effective.

Lulu: Yeah, not so far.

Dillon: Well, she'll come. Monica will come.

Lulu: Dillon, you're really into this.

Dillon: No, I'm not. I'm just -- you know, I'm -- I'm just trying to figure out who killed Rick Webber, that's -- that's all.

Lulu: Yeah, and if you plot all the angles, it'll, you know, make a great film one day, too, right?

Dillon: That's not why I'm -- Lulu, I'm just -- I'm trying to help you.

Lulu: No -- I know. I'm -- I'm just saying that it'll make a great screenplay or a student film one day, too, right?

Dillon: Yes, I admit I'm enjoying this a little bit, but it's because I want to prove your mother's innocence. I mean, you know, somebody else killed Rick Webber and stood back and watched your mom tear herself apart over undeserved guilt, and I want to turn that around, okay? I want to give this thing a happy ending if I can.

Lulu: Well, we're standing in this attic and we don't even have any proof that Monica was the one who killed Rick.

Dillon: We'll get proof.

Lulu: Yeah, but we don't even know if Monica stole Rick’s datebook.

Dillon: Well, that's what we're going to find out.

Ric: Show up at the custody hearing prepared to testify or be charged with contempt.

Diane: This is going to backfire on you.

Ric: Well, then Sonny should be looking forward to seeing me at the custody hearing.

Sonny: I'll make sure to tell the judge how you dragged me into your court, wasted my time. You got no case against me as far as the Alcazar shooting. It's just, you know, petty revenge -- it's what he does.

Ric: Okay, the two cases first of all, are unrelated. But since you did mention the Alcazar shooting, I am planning on filing a brief requesting that the judge deny spousal privilege where Carly’s case is concerned -- since you just remarried her to subvert the system and make sure that she doesn't testify against you.

Diane: That is a ridiculous accusation.

Ric: I don't see Sonny denying it.

Diane: The police have in custody a witness who can establish intent on Alcazar's part. Carly's testimony is immaterial. Mr. Corinthos loves his wife, and that is the only reason that they got married.

Sonny: But you just keep fishing, Ric.

Ric: And you keep scrambling, Sonny. You got so many crimes that you're trying to cover up, I can't see how you keep track. The great thing about it is I just got to convict you of one of them. But in the meantime, my daughter comes first.

Sonny: Alexis is in bad shape. There's no way she can handle a custody hearing.

Diane: She might not have any choice.

Sonny: You got to get Ric to back off.

Diane: Yes, well, as Ric pointed out, I don't deal in family court.

Sonny: You are strong, you know how to play his game, just do what Alexis would do. If she had strength, she would back him into a corner and negotiate.

Diane: All right. All right. Let us just assume I'm able to work this little miracle of legal maneuvering. The question then becomes, will Alexis negotiate?

Sonny: I'll handle Alexis.

Robin: You want to leave your apartment because you don't like the couch?

Patrick: Oh, it -- it's more than that.

Patrick's voice: If I don't get out now, you're going to be picking out china patterns.

Robin: I thought you were beginning to like this place.

Patrick: I -- I like it fine. It's just I -- I don't think it works for us.

Robin's voice: Here we go.

Robin: What do you mean?

Patrick's voice: Great -- going to have the relationship talk.

Patrick: Okay, this is going to be really frustrating for you, but think about when we were at Metro Court. It was so nice -- we could go there and stay whenever we wanted to.

Robin: We can do that here.

Patrick: I know, but there's furniture there, and there's clean sheets and clean towels, and there's not so much pressure.

Robin's voice: Great -- the “p” word.

Robin: Okay, what kind of pressure?

Patrick's voice: Going down a slippery slope.

Patrick: Pressure to -- to fix things up. Pressure to -- to buy things, to -- to get everything settled.

Robin: In other words, if you live in a hotel, then no one can move in with you?

Diane: Just in case you were wondering, I'm here to get an affidavit from Dr. Trent detailing Alexis' treatment for cancer.

Ric: I fail to see the relevance.

Diane: Well, you will -- when I stand in front of a custody judge and compare the timeline for Alexis' diagnosis and treatment of cancer with the timeline of you sleeping with her daughter, making a grab for her job, and basically trying to steal her child away.

Ric: Molly is my daughter, as well. I happen to love her.

Diane: So does her very sick mother.

Ric: That doesn't give Alexis the right to cut me off from her.

[Diane chuckles]

Diane: Well, good luck making that argument. You're still going to come across as a soulless monster who's trying to take a child away from her cancer-stricken mother.

Ric: Hmm. Why are you doing this?

Diane: I'm being paid.

Ric: Yes, but you're a criminal attorney. I'd hate to see you lose your reputation by losing in family court.

Diane: Cancer is a terrible and all-too-common disease. And if we are assigned a judge with a friend, a parent, a spouse, a child who is suffering or has suffered what Alexis is suffering, then you will be the one to lose, Mr. Lansing.

Sonny: Alexis? You okay?

Alexis: I just had another round of chemo. How to put this? I'm not exactly feeling like my perky self.

Sonny: I hate to bother you with this, but Ric just hit me with a subpoena.

Alexis: Oh. He wants you to testify at Molly's custody hearing?

Sonny: We don't have to do this now. We can do this some other time.

Alexis: No, no, we can make a big game out of it. What makes me more nauseous -- the chemo or Ric?

Sonny: I have contact with Molly through Kristina. But since I, you know, am a known criminal and live a dangerous life, somehow that makes you an unfit mother.

Alexis: He's not going to be able to prove that.

Sonny: Well, Ric's going to enter every police report about my violence in my home into evidence. And you know he's going to say that you're a reckless mother because you let Molly stay with me and Carly while you're in the hospital.

Alexis: He's a despicable attorney --

[Sonny sighs]

Alexis: I think that's an oxymoron.

Sonny: He's just fighting for his kid, I don't know. You know, if I was in his -- in his shoes, maybe I would do the same thing.

Alexis: But you didn’t. You see, you decided to do what was best for Kristina. I just don't think that he's ever going to be able to share your perspective.

Sonny: I know you want to fight Ric with everything you got. But don't you think it's best just to maybe work out an --

Alexis: Oh -- oh.

Sonny: You okay?

Man: Ms. McCall? Nice to meet you.

Sam: Hi. You, too, Mr. Maddox. Thank you very much for taking the time to interview me.

Mr. Maddox: Do you have any questions?

Sam: Um -- here. About the application, I was just -- um -- for the history here, there's not enough room.

Mr. Maddox: Oh, don't worry about that. We'll do a thorough background check before the second interview.

Sam: I have no experience in the hotel field, but I wanted to let you know that I am highly motivated. I'm a very, very quick learner and I am very good with people.

Mr. Maddox: Those are the qualities we look for here at the Metro Court. I'm relatively new to this position. Haven't I seen you here with one of our owners -- Carly Corinthos?

Sam: Um -- I -- I have seen Mrs. Corinthos around, but, um, no. I -- I actually don't know anyone associated with this hotel.

[Music plays]

Jason: Don't tell me you're switching over from Kelly’s.

Elizabeth: Don't tell Bobbie or Mike, but you guys have a much better selection of herbal teas.

Jason: Uh, didn't -- didn't want to know that. Thanks.

Elizabeth: I didn't think teas were high on your priority list. I'm surprised that you renovated this place. I mean, it's great, but I didn't think that you wanted --

Jason: Sonny and I, we don't want customers hanging around all the time -- no, we don't -- but Carly’s trying to help.

Elizabeth: Oh. Carly did this?

Jason: Yeah. You think Sonny would pick out all this chrome?

[Elizabeth chuckles]

Jason: And you should see his office. It's not exactly what I thought his office would look like.

Elizabeth: Oh, it can't be that bad.

Jason: Yeah. Whatever. I don't think Sonny really minds -- except for the customers, of course -- and it wouldn't be too bad to sell a little coffee and some of your favorite herbal tea, right?

Elizabeth: Yeah. Well, he can always count on my business.

Jason: On the house, okay? And don't even start lecturing me about paying your own way.

Elizabeth: Lect-- lecturing -- do I lecture you?

Jason: No, not often. No.

Elizabeth: Well, I'm not going to lecture you now. I'm just going to say thank you.

Jason: You're welcome.

Elizabeth: And not just for the tea, but for letting me vent earlier today.

Jason: I'm glad I could help.

Elizabeth: I always fell like I can count on you.

Jason: That's because we're honest and trust each other.

Elizabeth: Jason, I haven't always been honest with you.

[Music plays]

Elizabeth: When we were on the bridge, you had said when you love someone, if you decide to play God and you make choices for that person, then it's a violation of their trust.

Jason: Yeah, I believe that.

Elizabeth: And I do, too. At least, I realized it from the moment you said it.

Jason: What, do you think you can trust Lucky again?

Elizabeth: Do you trust Sam?

Jason: I love Sam. I want her to be happy.

Elizabeth: Well, I'm -- I'm really glad that you guys were able to work things out. Anyhow, thanks for listening to me. It's always helpful to talk to you. And I -- I realize that you can't force things with someone. Two people will either come together or they won't in their own time.

Jason: I hope it works out the way you want.

Elizabeth: I hope it works for you, too.

Patrick: Since when did this get about moving in together?

Robin: Well, obviously you think that I went overboard when I tried to help you decorate.

Patrick: Okay, yeah, I felt a little rushed.

Robin: Right -- you thought that I was trying to make this my place, which was not my intention, I assure you.

[Robin sighs]

Robin: At least, not consciously.

Patrick: Look, I appreciate what you did, and I -- and I wanted you to help.

Robin: Here comes the "but."

Patrick: There's no "but." It was just a couch. Now, let's not make this into something that it's not.

Robin: I know there's more. Just be honest with me.

Patrick: I am being honest with you.

Robin: Okay, you felt a little squeezed, right, which I understand. I really do. This -- this is your place. This is your life, it's your stuff. You wanted to be able to say, "Okay, this is where my stuff goes, this is where I go."

Patrick: Okay, yes, but, see, that's just it. I like where I am, I like where we are. I don't want to go having to start change things.

Robin: Do you miss the women that used to come and go from your life?

Patrick: No. Not at all. I am very happy with you. I'm not looking for something better. I don't believe there is anything better for me. I want to enjoy were we are right now without the pressure of having to go to the next step.

Robin: I'm not trying to pressure you.

Patrick: I know. I get that. I don't want to get too far ahead of ourselves, because then I might hurt you and I won't mean to, and I couldn't live with myself if I did that. I don't want to go having to start change things.

Robin: I'm not trying to pressure you.

Patrick: Was that honest enough for you?

Robin: I'm not hurt.

Patrick: Good.

Robin: I'm fine. I'm glad we had this conversation.

Patrick: So am I.

Patrick: So am I. Now, was that honest enough for you?

Robin: Yeah, that was honest enough for me. So if you want to move back to the hotel, then you should do it.

Patrick: Hmm.

Robin: But before you do that, I think we should say goodbye to your apartment.

Alexis: Just the cumulative effect of the chemo. I've never felt more attractive.

Sonny: You're going to have to postpone the hearing.

Alexis: No. I can’t.

Sonny: What do you mean, "No"?

Alexis: Because that just validates the fact that I can't take care of Molly -- that's what he'll say.

Sonny: Then you need to negotiate a compromise with Ric.

Alexis: I can't do that. You know that better than anyone else. As soon as you compromise him, he'll -- it's a prelude to a double cross.

Sonny: You're backing yourself into a corner like you did with me when we were fighting for custody of Kristina. Hey, we found a happy medium, we share custody, it worked out better than we expected.

Alexis: That's different.

Sonny: What do you mean, it's different?

Alexis: He doesn't want Molly; he just wants to punish me.

Sonny: Okay, you know he's going to take advantage of your weakness.

Alexis: He's certainly going to try.

Sonny: Use your bargaining power and make a deal. You may give up some visitation, but you know what? It's better than passing out at the custody hearing or throwing up or whatever --

Alexis: I'm not going to do that. I'm not going to pass out or throw up. I'm going to be strong, and that's just the way it's got to be.

Dillon: Lulu, hey, come on. Let's -- let's try it one more time just before --

Lulu: Okay, Dillon -- wait, I don't want to burst your bubble of excitement, but what if Monica's in your attic?

Dillon: Why would she be in my attic?

Lulu: Because what if she thought the note was from Edward or Tracy or something about some Quartermaine weirdness?

Dillon: Oh, come on. You saw the look on her face. She knows it was about Rick Webber -- "Death on the Nile."

Lulu: Excuse me?

Dillon: "Death -- Death on -- on the Nile"? You know, the co-conspirators to murder -- they look like they hate each other throughout the film, but in the end it was an act, they're teaming up?

Lulu: So?

Dillon: So Alan and Monica were at each other's throats about Rick Webber, but what if the opposite's true? What if they're working together?

Lulu: Okay, I think that would make a wonderful film idea,

Dillon: Look, Monica's number was all over Rick Webber’s datebook, and -- and all of a sudden, you know, she sees you and me, and -- and they were meeting together, and we're trying to figure out the mystery with Spinelli, she's trying to kick us out of the house. She's -- she's obviously the prime suspect.

Lulu: A little too obvious?

Dillon: In "Jagged Edge," the murderer ended up being the person you thought it was the entire film, and that's the twist ending.

[Door opens]

Lulu: Now what?

Dillon: Um -- improvise, keep cool, try to get her to do the talking.

Monica: So it is you two.

Dillon: What happened here four years ago, Monica?

Monica: Well, I wasn't here, so, therefore I --

Lulu: You're lying! My mother didn't kill Rick Webber, you did.

Monica: Do you honestly think that I killed Rick Webber?

Lulu: I know that you did.

Dillon: You were obviously seeing him before he died. Your number was all over his datebook on several different days. And all of a sudden, that datebook disappears from her bag at the house?

Lulu: You were seeing Rick, he rejected you, you killed him, and you blamed it on my mom.

Monica: Look, Lulu, accepting the truth about what happened has got to be difficult for you --

Lulu: Don't turn this around on me, Monica!

Dillon: You have been doing everything you can to stop us -- you kicked Spinelli out of the house, you tried to send Lulu off to some --

Monica: I have been worried about you, Lulu, since your mother's relapse. Your obsession with -- with Rick’s death is not healthy.

Lulu: Why did your phone number appear in his datebook?

Monica: When Rick came into town, I did see him -- quite a few times. But we did not have an affair, and he certainly did not reject me. I didn't kill Rick, your mother did, and for all the reasons that you know. So could you both please let this lie?

Dillon: So, if you have nothing to hide, why are you still trying to stop us?

[Monica sighs]

Monica: Because Rick was a rather complicated man, and he had quite a few secrets. And I think if you keep digging, you may just uncover something that somebody wants to stay buried.

[Music plays]

Patrick: I'm going to miss this place.

Singer: On top of cloud

Robin: Then don't move.

Patrick: It's just so much easier at the hotel -- room service and maid service and --

Robin: Okay -- I'll make you a deal.

Patrick: What's that?

Robin: If you stay, I will not make any more contributions to your decor.

Singer: Of all the memories

Robin: Really. You pick out everything, and if that's too much for you, then just hire a decorator, but I will stay completely out of it.

Patrick: Completely?

Robin: Mm-hmm.

Patrick: No potted plants, no throw pillows, no nothing?

Robin: Absolutely nothing. My self-control will astonish you.

Patrick: You know it wasn't about your personal taste.

Robin: I know that. It wasn't about me trying to make this place my own.

Singer: As I dream in my mind

Robin: But I can fix that.

Singer: You take me away

Patrick: How's that?

Singer: So divine

Robin: If you do ever ask me to move in with you, I'll just say no.

Singer: Flying on top of cloud nine on top of cloud nine

Sonny: Ric's about to drag Alexis into family court. She is in no shape for a custody hearing.

Jason: Yeah, Sam is worried about her, too, but I don't know what we can do for her.

Sonny: Well, I'm thinking Carly could help.

Jason: How?

Sonny: Well, she could tell the judge that I'm a good father, that I spend a lot of time with my children and that I'm good with my children and she's fine with it. I'm in no danger to Kristina and, by extension, Molly.

Jason: Is this coming from Alexis or coming from you?

Sonny: I have not mentioned it to Alexis, but I -- I do believe Carly can help. So what I want you to do is I want you to go get her.

Jason: I can't do that.

[Music plays]

Sam: Ooh.

Barista: Hey, Sam.

Sam: Hey, Pauline.

Paulie: Jason's in the back with Sonny.

Sam: Okay. Um, I'm going to wait, so can you get me a double shot latte, please? Thanks. Ooh.

Diane: Long day?

Sam: Ooh, kind of. I just got back from a job interview, so we'll see.

Diane: How'd it go?

Sam: Oh. I don't know. You know, I -- I may wind up never getting a job.

Diane: Oh. Well, given who your boyfriend is, you could probably get any job you wanted in this town just by dropping Jason's name.

Sam: Yeah. Um -- I know. I'd like to really do this one on my own, though.

Mr. Maddox: Too bad Sam McCall has no qualifications. We're going to go ahead with her background check anyhow.

Man: Uh, Sir, did you look at her address?

Mr. Maddox: Harbor View Towers.

Man: And how many times have we sent a car there to pick up Mrs. Corinthos?

Mr. Maddox: Penthouse number 3 -- that's Jason Morgan.

Man: Sam McCall is his girlfriend.

Jason: If you really need Carly to come back, you're going to have to ask her.

Sonny: She's not listening to me right now -- husband or not. But I'm sure that if you went over there, she -- she would come, you know?

Jason: Sonny, I got her to marry you. What else do you want me to do?

Sonny: You don't know how much I appreciate that. But I'm just trying to work things out here.

Jason: You -- you shot Alcazar, Ric thinks he's got you -- that's what we need to be focusing on right now.

Sonny: So you're saying it's fine that Carly’s hiding from me?

Jason: I'm saying that you and Carly have a marriage of convenience, and you can't force it to be more than that.

[Elizabeth sighs]

Lucky: Elizabeth.

Elizabeth: Hey.

Lucky: I got your message. Can your grandmother baby-sit tomorrow night?

Elizabeth: Yes, she can. So I guess we're on for dinner.

Lucky: Elizabeth, if you're just trying to do this to keep me off the pills --

Elizabeth: I'm not. Really, I'm -- I'm not.

Lucky: We busted a drug dealer today. He was pushing hydrocodone -- my drug of choice.

Elizabeth: How'd that go?

Lucky: Well, if there was anything that would've made me dive back in the bottom of a pill bottle, it was because Maxie was lying to me about her pregnancy. But it didn’t. I just thought you should know that I -- I was tempted. But I -- I didn't act on it. I just -- I got through it.

Elizabeth: That's great, Lucky, I'm really proud of you.

Lucky: So am I.

Elizabeth: Well, I guess I'll see you later.

Lucky: Okay, great.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Lucky: I look forward to it.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Sam: I want a job, not because of anyone I know.

Mr. Maddox: Are you still interested in the job here?

Ric: Do not leave Ms. Davis' house without photographic evidence.

James: The shipment's due anytime.

Lorenzo: Sonny still remains a threat.
