Emily: All the airports and train stations are being watched. We can be fairly certain that Helena hasn't left St. Petersburg.
Nikolas: Yeah. Helena didn't choose this city on a whim. It's the ancestral home of the Cassadines. But it's also known for Russkaya Mafiya. The crime syndicate -- it's powerful here. Helena would have no trouble arranging my murder, leaving her free to bring up Spencer.
Lorenzo: Ah, you've arrived just in time. Hand me my shoes.
Skye: Not a chance. Now, I will have you tied to the bed if necessary, but you are not going anywhere.
Lorenzo: I don't think you understand, Skye. We're running out of time.
Lucky: I just wanted to apologize for canceling our date the other night, especially after you made arrangements with Audrey to baby-sit.
Elizabeth: No, it -- it's totally fine. I mean, I -- I understand -- you know, emergencies at work -- and Gram, she didn't mind.
Lucky: You mentioned something about a rain check.
Elizabeth: Yeah. Yeah, sure, anytime.
Lucky: Okay, how about tonight?
Max: Anything else?
Jason: No. Tonight we're expecting a coffee shipment. Bernie said it's been delayed again. So I just don't know --
Jason: Welcome home.
Carly: Thanks. I don't know if I'm glad to be back yet. You know, a lot of stuff going on here.
Jason: Okay, you know what? Don't go in expecting a fight. When you took the boys and left, he did not come after you. That means he's trying.
Carly: Yeah, well, we'll see. Is he in his office? Because I really need to talk to him.
Carly: What is going on?
Max: Um -- pulling cappuccinos.
Max: Boss relocated me.
Carly: Because you helped me?
Sonny: Max, give me a double espresso.
Max: Right away.
Carly: You are a jerk. Do you know that?
Sonny: About time my wife came home.
Elizabeth: I'm going to have to check with Gram before I can agree to dinner for tonight.
Lucky: Well, I already checked. She agreed to help.
Elizabeth: Oh. Well, you know we're not getting into Giselle's.
Lucky: That's why I made reservations for us at Metro Court. It's your favorite place.
Elizabeth: Lucky, it's so expensive.
Lucky: You deserve a night out.
Elizabeth: I don't want you to go through all this trouble.
Lucky: After everything that's happened this past year, you could have easily turned your back on me. But you didn’t.
Elizabeth: I just want to see you move forward with your life.
Lucky: And I can do that. Now that you've figured out Maxie was lying, all the guilt that I was carrying about the pregnancy and losing the baby -- it's gone. The wall that Maxie was building between you and me -- you -- you tore it down.
Elizabeth: Well, sometimes the truth changes everything.
Lucky: We have a chance to start over. Tonight could be a new beginning. All you have to do is show up.
Elizabeth: I'll be there.
Jason: A lot has happened, okay? Maybe you guys just need a few minutes to --
Carly: You don't even care how wrong this is. You don't even care.
Sonny: Well, you know, if my wife thinks that I made a mis--
Carly: Stop calling me your wife!
Sonny: But you are my wife.
Carly: Only in the legal sense, and not for very long, and you know it.
Sonny: Then why are you so upset?
Carly: Why I'm upset?
Carly: Stop trying to change the subject!
Sonny: I'm not.
Carly: You're punishing Max because you're mad at me!
Sonny: I am not mad at you.
Carly: Yes, you are. Why is Max standing there in an apron?
Sam: It looks like you're going to have your hands full.
Jason: Yeah, I knew this would happen.
Sam: Okay. Just fill me in when you're done. Bye.
Carly: So mad because I left. Why do you think something's going on?
Sonny: Okay, okay, I understand, I understand.
Max: Boss, a muffin?
Sonny: No, thank you. This is just --
Carly: No, I want you to tell me exactly what happened.
Max: Well, I, you know --
Sonny: I can't have a bodyguard I cannot trust.
Carly: How can you question his loyalty, Sonny?
Max: Mrs. C, I was just trying to help --
Carly: He is selfless and devoted to you, and you know it.
Sonny: No, he's devoted to you. That's the problem here.
Max: If I had it to do all over again, Mrs. C --
Sonny: He distracted me so you could leave town with my children. That kind of behavior is unacceptable.
Carly: So he's going to be stuck behind a counter pouring coffee for the rest of his life? You have not changed at all. You're a bully. And now that you can't bully me, you're going to bully Max, and that's why we can't be together. Let me tell you something -- this marriage is going to last as long as your legal problems. The second you're in the clear, we are getting a divorce.
Skye: In case your memory is still hazy, allow me to remind you -- you were shot in the head. You had bullet fragments removed from your brain. I think you need to stay in the hospital a little while longer to recover, or else you could risk injuring yourself even worse.
Lorenzo: I don't have the luxury of a long convalescence. The shipment's going to arrive any day, and I have to be ready.
Skye: All right, let me ask you -- these people that you're dealing with -- they expect you to handle it personally, correct?
Skye: And this shipment -- whatever it is -- it's very important to them, isn't it?
Lorenzo: It's crucial.
Skye: Well, then why can't you just explain what's going on? Tell them that you were seriously injured and you just need a little more time.
Lorenzo: It doesn't work that way.
Skye: Well, why not? Now, if this arrival of the shipment is so critical, maybe your associates will accept a slight delay in return for a healthy point man.
Lorenzo: Because these people are not only ruthless, they're also shortsighted. And they can't see past their immediate needs.
Skye: Yeah, well, I can't, either, right now, okay? And my immediate need is to make sure the father of my little girl doesn't push himself into having a seizure or a stroke. Please, will you at least try to delay the shipment?
Lorenzo: All right. I'll speak with them. But I'm going to need your help.
Emily: Helena's desperate to mold Spencer into the heir she's always wanted, but you'll still always be her precious grandson.
Nikolas: Yeah. You're the last person that I'd expect to harbor some sentimental illusions about my grandmother.
Emily: No, no, no -- don't -- don't get me wrong. Helena would kill me in a second. For all we know, that's why she lured us out here to St. Petersburg. If anyone needs to worry about an assassin, it's me.
Nikolas: No. Because I won't leave you alone, even for a second. She'll never even get the opportunity to hurt you, okay?
Emily: Well, that helps me to feel safer, but it doesn't get us any closer to Spencer or to Helena.
[Knock on door]
Nikolas: But I think I found someone who knows where to start looking. Ah, Arkady. Please.
Arkady: Prince Cassadine, wonderful to see you again.
Nikolas: Yes, yes. Please, let me introduce you to Emily Quartermaine.
Arkady: I'm honored to make your acquaintance.
Emily: Nice to meet you.
Nikolas: Arkady's family has worked for the Cassadines for generations. His cousins are still employed on Cassadine properties in Greece. Have you found anything out?
Arkady: Mrs. Cassadine is here. Young prince is with her.
Nikolas: Okay. Take me to my son immediately.
Arkady: I don't know where Mrs. Cassadine is staying as of yet. But she was seen yesterday visiting the old Cassadine palace. As you know, it has been converted to a museum.
Nikolas: Right, right. Trust my grandmother to take a baby who's less than a year old on tour of his heritage.
Emily: Well, at least Helena's consistent. That's going to make her easier to find.
Nikolas: Did she have any guards with her?
Arkady: Yes. They were Russkaya Mafiya, associated with Ivan Renko -- known for his heavily armed, very violent associates. He runs a major syndicate.
Emily: If Helena's protected by a local crime lord, then -- then how are we going to get close to her, much less get Spencer away from her?
Nikolas: I want to meet with this Renko.
Arkady: Could be arranged, but it is terrible risk.
Nikolas: I want to meet with him within the hour, thank you.
Arkady: Yes, Prince.
Emily: Oh. Look, just because Helena won't kill you doesn't mean that Renko or one of his associates won’t.
Nikolas: No, men like Renko are for sale to the highest bidder. And my pockets are deeper than Helena’s.
Emily: You could be walking into a trap.
Nikolas: I'll take any risk, Emily, if it means getting my son back.
Carly: How could you demote Max? He would take a bullet for you. He has saved your life more than once, and he would do it again. What's wrong with you?
Sonny: Max sent me off on a wild-goose chase while you took my kids. You know what? Max is lucky to have a job. Am I right, Jason?
Carly: You let him get away with this, Jason.
Jason: It's his bodyguard. If he doesn't want him at the house, Carly --
Sonny: That's right.
Carly: Of course you're taking Sonny's side. What was I thinking? Of course you are.
Jason: No, Max let's you manipulate him. That could be dangerous.
Carly: So you take your most loyal and reliable bodyguard and you put him behind a counter to pour coffee?
Jason: Look -- you don't think things through, okay? And if he can't stay calm and rational when it comes to you --
Carly: Calm and rational? Calm and rational? I'm sorry, but didn't I just calmly and rationally marry Sonny to keep him out of prison?
Sonny: You ran out of the ceremony and left the state with my children before the, you know, reception was over.
Carly: Are we married?
Sonny: Yeah, but, you know --
Carly: Then what's the problem? Except that you calmly and rationally tried to take advantage of the situation --
Carly: Like you always do. So, I calmly and rationally packed up our children and took them snowboarding, so I could set some calm and rational boundaries, okay?
Sonny: Okay, what do you mean, boundaries?
Carly: This is the problem. I need boundaries, and you don't understand that.
Sonny: Yeah, but that's why you shouldn't have left town. You should have stayed here so we could talk about what you need, what I need, and we can get those needs in sync.
Carly: No, don't you start --
Carly: Flirting with me.
Sonny: I'm not flirting with you, I'm just saying that we're married, and we got to communicate. And this -- and Max in the apron here -- he interfered with that process, in addition to, you know, lying to me and then you said --
Carly: So you admit that you were punishing Max because he was helping me draw a clear line between the two of us? You know what? I'm sorry, Max, that Sonny does not appreciate how valuable you are. But I'm not going to stand by and watch you pour coffee and lattes.
Max: Mrs. --
Carly: I won't do it.
Max: Mrs. C, I -- I --
Carly: Sonny doesn't appreciate you. You deserve better. I want you to come work for me.
Sonny: That's good. Max, don't even -- don't even listen to what she's saying.
Carly: Imagine, no more orders from Sonny.
Carly: You want the job?
Max: I don't know what to say.
Sonny: Say no.
Carly: Say yes.
Max: Yes. Uh --
Sonny: Really? That hurts. Okay. You happy now that you saved Max from the espresso machine?
Carly: You don't appreciate Max, and now he can come work for me. He'll be appreciated.
Sonny: Max does whatever you want. That's why, you know -- he'll -- whatever you say, he does. That's why I had to do what I do.
Carly: Well, you don't have to worry about Max anymore because now he's mine, okay?
Sonny: Oh, please.
Carly: You should be thanking me that I took this unreliable bodyguard off your hands.
Sonny: Well, I'm not going to thank you.
Carly: "Thank you, Carly."
Elizabeth: Nurses' station, sixth floor. Let me check. Are you here?
Epiphany: No, take a message.
Elizabeth: I'm sorry; she's not available at the moment. Can I take a message? Mm-hmm. Okay. No, thank you. Hmm.
Epiphany: Now, if that's my son calling to say that he can't make it for dinner, just throw it away.
Elizabeth: It was Tyrell Quinn.
Elizabeth: Tyrell. He says he misses your smile, and he can't wait to see you.
Epiphany: If that no-good, two-timing, promise-breaking dog ever calls here again and dares to ask for me, I want you to call the police.
Elizabeth: Ooh. What did he do?
Epiphany: He made me fall in love with him, then he runs off and marries another woman, and leaves me with a baby to raise.
Lucky: Why are we meeting out here?
Det. Rodriguez: Well, I called Lansing on how he's treating Alexis Davis. We're lucky we're not out measuring crosswalks.
Lucky: Well, what do you mean, "we"?
Det. Rodriguez: Well, you're my partner, like it or not. And with Lansing upset with me and the commissioner furious with you, we could be spending a lot of time out in the cold.
Lucky: Well, are we actually looking for something, or are we just waiting for the frostbite to set in?
Det. Rodriguez: What do you see?
Lucky: Well, I see empty piers, freezing water, and not too many people. But one boat over at the Corinthos-Morgan warehouse.
Det. Rodriguez: It's been parked there for a while. I think it's getting repairs.
Lucky: That's not too exciting.
Det. Rodriguez: Exactly. Alcazar isn't moving anything at all. Sonny's only landing coffee beans. Any questionable activity -- anything that might even look remotely illegal -- has stopped.
Lucky: And that's a bad thing?
Det. Rodriguez: Well, Lansing wants to know why all the gangsters are suddenly on vacation.
Lucky: Who knows? But it works for me. I have dinner tonight with Elizabeth at Metro Court, and I don't want anything to mess it up.
Lorenzo: What, no flowers?
Ric: Oh, you seem to be recovering just fine without any encouragement from me.
Lorenzo: As disappointing as that must be, I can't blame you for taking advantage of the situation. It was a nice try, poisoning my I.V. It almost worked.
Ric: I was in a room with 20 other people, as you well know -- not that I wouldn't love to see you dead, but I didn't try to kill you. And as much as I hate to admit it, it seems that my brother shot you in self-defense.
Lorenzo: Well, I doubt you'll be trying to prove that in court.
Ric: No, we're moving forward with the case of attempted murder. And we'll probably get a court date, but I don't think we're going to go to a jury. The police picked up the woman that you used to plant the gun. Now, I'm sure, with her testimony, Sonny's lawyer's going to be able to prove self-defense. And with her testimony, of course, she's also going to be able to prove premeditation on your part, which makes the case against you shooting Sonny a heck of a lot stronger, Alcazar.
Lorenzo: Well, Ric, who's to say this witness is telling the truth?
Ric: Oh, well, I can't prove it in a court of law, but I'm pretty sure that she is. But the thing that bothers me here is, what pushed your panic button, hmm? I mean, why was it so important for you to kill Sonny immediately? And then when you botched the whole thing, why did you -- why did you pull out of all your operations, and why did Sonny pull out of his?
Lorenzo: Maybe we've decided to declare a truce.
Ric: Or maybe it's the calm before a very big storm.
Lorenzo: You know, if you were as smart as you like to think you are, you'd stop asking questions now. As it stands, nothing concerns the PCPD or the district attorney's office. So I would suggest you do yourself a favor and leave it that way.
Ric: Well, or what? Suppose I keep asking questions.
Lorenzo: Well, then I imagine you'll wind up dead. Not by my hand, but -- on second thought, Ric, ask as many questions as you would like. I won't be able to answer them. Perhaps you know someone at Langley.
Ric: What are you implying, exactly?
Skye: Here's a more relevant question -- why is the D.A. badgering a crime victim who just had brain surgery? You're here questioning Lorenzo on a criminal matter without the aid of counsel, knowing full well he's incapacitated by pain medication. In short, you are violating Lorenzo’s civil rights. And if you don't leave right now, I will not only go screaming to the media, I will file a lawsuit that will bankrupt this city, not to mention get you out of office.
Ric: Well, I -- I'm impressed. I'm impressed. I mean, those are completely empty threats, Skye. But they were delivered with such passion and conviction. I'm a little confused, though. When did you all of a sudden become Lorenzo Alcazar's personal cheering section?
Lucky: You know, I hadn't really thought about it, but the assignment that ruined my last date with Elizabeth came from Lansing.
Det. Rodriguez: Makes you wonder.
Lucky: Well, maybe Lansing is trying to sabotage our reunion.
Det. Rodriguez: Lansing can be pretty devious.
Lucky: Yeah, but he can't manipulate Elizabeth.
Det. Rodriguez: I hope you're right.
Lucky: Elizabeth forced Maxie to admit she was lying. That means she still cares about me.
Det. Rodriguez: Well, caring and wanting a reunion are two different things.
Lucky: Well --
Det. Rodriguez: I mean, Elizabeth went through hell when you were using. She might not be as ready --
Lucky: Okay, you know what? But I'm working the program now.
Det. Rodriguez: Isn't part of the program to keep things simple? Or something like that? I mean, you're going through a lot. You may not want to rush into things.
Lucky: Well, you know what? Elizabeth and I could have gotten back together when my mom recovered. And I'm sure we can do it. What?
Det. Rodriguez: I hope you're right.
Lucky: All right, is this going to be a problem?
Det. Rodriguez: I don't want to discourage you. But as far as I remember, you and Elizabeth weren't all smooth sailing.
Lucky: Mm-hmm. And we got through it.
Det. Rodriguez: What about the money problems? The medical bills? I mean, Elizabeth's been working double shifts since you guys got married. And when your brother offered you help, you almost took his head off.
Lucky: And we're going to get through it.
Det. Rodriguez: And then you got jealous of Patrick Drake and you took it out on Elizabeth.
Lucky: I was afraid I was going to lose Elizabeth. I was seeing things that weren't there. But I learned how to handle it through the program.
Det. Rodriguez: Elizabeth might not be ready to get back together as you are. That's all I'm saying.
Lucky: You know, I've known Elizabeth since she was the worst waitress at Kelly’s, ever.
Det. Rodriguez: Even worse than your sister?
Lucky: Yeah -- yeah, a disaster. And she only kept the job there because of me. And then we became friends. Then we fell in love. I don't think our love ever really disappeared. I'm sure Elizabeth feels the same way.
Sam: Good morning. Welcome to the Metro Court. Max.
Max: Hi, I -- I didn't know you worked at the Metro Court.
Sam: Yeah, I just started a couple of days ago. What are you doing here?
Max: Well, Mrs. C wants to hire me.
Sam: At the hotel?
Max: Yeah, yeah. I'm supposed to tell the manager that I'm the new head of security.
Sam: Oh, I guess I must have missed some big fight, no?
Max: Yeah. Well, you know how it is.
Sam: I know. I just -- I never thought that you would stop working for Sonny.
Max: Well, I didn't really want to. You know, not that I enjoy making lattes. But I understand why the boss is upset. But now, Mrs. C is upset, too, and she's determined to defend me, and I -- and I can't make her look bad, especially in front of the boss. She's just trying to be nice, you know?
Sam: But you do want to work here, at the hotel?
Max: How hard can it be?
Davis: Is there a problem?
Max: I'm Max Giambetti. I'm the new head of security.
Sonny: Okay, you're -- you're being childish.
Carly: I'm being childish? I'm not the one who fired poor Max.
Sonny: I didn't fire poor Max. I just moved him to a more appropriate position so that --
Carly: You made him take off his gun and put on an apron. How petty and childish is that? And you know why you did it? Because he had the audacity and the courage to do me a favor. That's why you did it.
Sonny: I don't pay Max to take orders from you.
Carly: Well, you don't pay him at all now.
Sonny: Okay, well, you're the one who walked in my office when Alcazar was trying to kill me and stuff --
Carly: And conveniently saved your life, Sonny!
Sonny: And you also set yourself up as -- to be the prosecution's star witness by claiming you saw everything.
Carly: I was trying to defend you!
Now I see that was a really huge mistake.
Sonny: Okay, you did as much as I did to create this situation. And considering we've been married, you know, three times, it's not -- it's not the end of the world. But you still wanted to punish me by taking my children. Max should have never been involved. I --
Carly: You forced me to leave because you refused to treat this like a marriage of convenience.
Sonny: Okay -- we're having a disagreement right now. No, I'm saying it doesn't give you the right to take -- take off with my children, you know? It's just not fair.
Carly: Sonny, I had to set boundaries before Michael and Morgan saw this stupid arrangement as something that was going to last, okay?
Sonny: What makes you think it's not going to last?
Carly: This is why I didn't want to marry you, because you refuse to see --
Jason: Stop. This isn't just about you, Carly, or you, Sonny. All this fighting and dragging the kids off anytime you feel like it -- don't you think this could hurt Michael and Morgan?
Carly: That's what I said from the beginning, Jason!
Jason: You had to marry Sonny! We all knew the reasons, okay? But Michael and Morgan are a part of this now, so work it out. Both of you, come up with some plan to live together, live apart. I don't even care. Do whatever you need to do. Figure out a way to deal with each other that doesn't hurt the kids.
[Door opens and slams]
Ric: Well, you've certainly come a long way from the desperate pregnant woman who tried to escape Alcazar by leaving the country. By the way, did you know that he wanted you thrown in jail for trying to steal your unborn child?
Skye: Well, I think it's a little too late to divide and conquer, Ric. See, Lorenzo and I have settled our differences, and if you don't leave right now, I'm going to call security and have them --
Ric: What you need to do is get a little perspective here, Skye, because whatever is going on here, it has caused Lorenzo to shut down his operations, and whatever Sonny's --
Skye: My point is you have no right to exhaust Lorenzo with such pointless questions. Now, must I remind you that he was shot in the head in cold blood -- by your own brother, I might add -- but you seem perfectly willing to slow down Lorenzo’s recovery, perhaps even making his injury worse.
Ric: Oh, so you're saying that I'm -- I'm talking Lorenzo to death?
Lorenzo: Well, I wouldn't put it past you. So unless you have an update on the case against Corinthos, I suggest you leave.
Ric: The case against Sonny is going forward as well as the case against you. You know, your poor, helpless Lorenzo here planted a gun in the coffeehouse and he went there with the expressed purpose of trying to kill Sonny.
Lorenzo: Do I need to remind you of the evidence I still hold against you, Ric, or were you hoping that I'd forgotten it?
Ric: Well, I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about.
Lorenzo: The evidence that will destroy your career and greatly complicate this custody fight you've started with Alexis, so I suggest you mind your own business and allow me and Skye to mind ours.
Max: I was with my former employer, Sonny Corinthos, for seven years. I'm an expert shot, an experienced driver with a specialty in evasive maneuvers. I was in charge of the Corinthos bodyguard rotation, which involved setting up security perimeters and watching --
Davis: I don't mean to interrupt, but there seems to be some confusion.
Max: Is there a problem with my qualifications regarding this position?
Davis: No. Not at all. It's nothing like that. It's just that the Metro Court is a sophisticated, service-oriented operation which requires a -- hmm -- different level of expertise than you possess.
Max: Hmm. Have you spoken to Mrs. Corinthos regarding this situation?
Davis: Is she back?
Max: That's correct.
Sam: Excuse us. Excuse us, please, Sir, manager? Let's --
Davis: I'm in the middle of an interview.
Sam: No, I understand that clearly, but I happened to see Carly this morning and she is in a very -- focused mood.
Davis: The job of hotel security is too important to give away to a friend, especially that one.
Sam: He knows what he's doing.
Davis: I have no doubt about that, but --
Sam: Look, Carly wants what she wants, and if she wants Max to be head of hotel security --
Davis: He's not the image we hope to project.
Sam: Then you're just going to have to learn to like him, get to know him. Look, Sir, I am really grateful that you hired me and gave me this chance, but I don't want to see you get yourself on Carly's bad side.
Davis: Are you telling me that I have no choice about hiring this -- gentleman?
Sam: No, I'm just saying that it's in everyone's best interest to keep Carly happy.
Carly: Maybe I overreacted. Maybe I jumped to conclusions, okay? But look at how you acted on the wedding day, Sonny. You knew I wanted it to be strictly business and you showed up with this ring and you started saying all those wonderful things to me and you decorated your house like it was a reception. You had my favorite flowers, my favorite cake, and then we danced, and I didn't want that and you know that.
Sonny: I understand.
Carly: That's why I took the boys to Aspen -- because I had to make it clear to everyone that I'm only staying married to you until your legal troubles are over. Then we're going to get a quiet divorce and I'm going to go back to Jax because I love him.
Sonny: How is Jax? Have you heard from him?
Carly: No, I haven't heard from him. He's on the other side of the planet. The time zones are all screwed up, and those satellite phones don't work, so, no, I haven't heard from him, okay?
Sonny: Does Jax know we're married?
Carly: It's really not something I want to leave on a voicemail, so no.
Sonny: How's his brother?
Carly: I know where you're going with this. Don't --
Sonny: No, I'm just saying -- I mean, you know, Jax has disappeared before and it just seems kind of strange that a guy that's so rich and powerful like Jax can't figure out to pick up the phone and call his fiancée.
Carly: I'm really worried about him, Sonny. You know that?
Sonny: You should be worried.
Carly: No, don't!
Sonny: What --
Carly: This is exactly what I'm trying to avoid. I'm not going to stand here and listen to you criticize Jax and I'm not going to have you undermine him, okay?
Sonny: Fine. Next time the kids bring his name up or whatever, I'm not going to comment. I won't say anything.
Sonny: And if he happens to call the house, I'll give you the phone. I won't even --
Carly: What do you mean, "call the house"? You don't expect me to live with you, do you?
Sonny: What are you talking about? I mean, we're married.
Carly: We're not married in our hearts.
Sonny: We live together.
Carly: We're not committing ourselves to each other. We aren't even a "we." I'm marrying you to do you a favor, so, you know, the boys and I will be staying at our own home.
Elizabeth: Would you rather be alone?
Jason: I could use a distraction. I'm just thinking in circles right now.
Elizabeth: Well, you picked a pretty chilly place to think.
Jason: Yeah, I like it out here.
Elizabeth: Yeah. You know, whatever it is, you can say out loud and I'll listen. You've certainly done it enough for me.
Jason: Sonny and Carly got married again.
Elizabeth: I heard.
Jason: It's supposed to be this legal tactic so Carly couldn't testify against Sonny for shooting Alcazar, but Sonny wants more. And I knew that and I pressured Carly into marrying him again. You see, she -- she loves -- she loves Jax, okay, or wants to love Jax or whatever it is. It's her choice. I -- I just feel like maybe I took advantage of our friendship and -- and talked her into marrying Sonny when she didn't want to.
Elizabeth: Why'd you do that?
Jason: To protect Sonny -- and Carly, too. I mean, if Ric ever manages to send Sonny to prison, there's no way that he could survive there. And that would be horrible for Carly and the kids. Besides, she needs him whether she likes it or not.
Elizabeth: Well, that all sounds reasonable.
Jason: I know. I know it does. I just -- I've put her in a position where she could really get hurt. For however much she loves Jax, she can't stop feeling for Sonny.
Elizabeth: Hey, that's the problem with love -- you can't control when you feel it or who you feel it for.
Nikolas: If Helena moves on with the connections she's made, who knows how long it'll take to find my son?
Emily: Look, granted, I don't speak one word of Russian, but I can read body language and you handled that situation perfectly. You were calm, you were in control. You were very much the prince.
Nikolas: Well, Emily, money is the universal language. I simply paid Helena's thugs more than she's paying. Anyone can do that.
Emily: No, not really.
Nikolas: I'm not even sure it worked. Just because this Renko agreed to the deal doesn't mean he's going to honor it. Here.
Emily: Gosh. You know, St. Petersburg is such a beautiful city, huh?
Emily: You can almost imagine it a hundred years ago.
Nikolas: Yeah. We'd be living in the Cassadine palace right now. It was a beautiful building conveniently located because during feasts and special occasions, you can just walk --
Nikolas: I know why Helena's in St. Petersburg and where she's taking Spencer.
Lorenzo: Whew. Did you bring it?
Skye: I did. Your direct line to whoever it is you work for.
Lorenzo: I may have to say some things that you're better off not hearing.
Skye: I could've used a few salient details when Mr. Craig was around. Anyway, knowledge is power.
Lorenzo: Not always.
Skye: Hey. I am in this way too deep to back out now.
Lorenzo: Hmm. Yes. Uh -- I've had some -- some difficulties. We need to delay the shipment. Well, if it's already on its way, then divert it. I'm not trying to back out. I understand what's at stake. I've made the arrangements. Continue as planned. No, there won't be any problems on this end.
Davis: Mrs. Corinthos. Welcome back.
Carly: Thanks. I won't be here long, though. I just want to make sure that my new head of security is settling in to his new job.
Davis: Mr. Giambetti is touring the hotel now. He's going to make a wonderful addition to the staff.
Carly: Great. I'm just going to touch base on a couple of other things and -- is that Sam McCall?
Davis: Yes. She's our newest hire, aside from Mr. Giambetti, of course. She's doing very well.
Carly: She lives with my best friend, so you need to make sure she's taken care of.
Davis: The entire staff is clear on the situation.
Carly: Okay. Thanks.
Carly: Hi. How's it going?
Sam: Well, I love it, if that's what you're asking.
Carly: I thought you were working for the Quartermaines.
Sam: Yeah, I was, but, you know, I just -- I didn't want any special treatment there and I -- and I certainly don't want any special treatment here, really.
Carly: Fine. I'll treat you as awful as I treat everyone else.
Sam: Actually, your staff really happens to like you.
Carly: La-la-la, don't want to hear that, don't want to hear that. Oh, I'll catch up with you later.
Max: Mrs. C?
Carly: Come here, come here. So you got the grand tour?
Max: Yeah. This is quite an operation you got going here.
Carly: Thanks, it is. I'm so glad you decided to come work for me. Sonny does not deserve you.
Max: Thank you.
Carly: I want to show you something upstairs. Come on.
Sam: Hello, Lucky.
Sam: Are you checking up on the purse snatching from yesterday?
Lucky: Actually, it's personal. I'm taking Elizabeth to dinner tonight at the Metro Court and I'd like to make some special arrangements.
Elizabeth: It is so easy to promise to love someone forever and to mean every word and to make that commitment. But people change. Life changes us. We make choices, some good, some bad, and we end up living with the consequences.
Jason: Sometimes I think that's what life really is -- choices and consequences.
Elizabeth: And time, because one day you'll wake up and you realize that you aren't the same person you were when you made those promises to the person you loved. And he isn't the same, either. So then, do those promises still count?
Jason: And if you give your word to -- to always love someone and to stand by them no matter what happens and they betray you, I think all bets are off. But if the other person keeps their promise, then you have to keep it, too.
Elizabeth: Because a deal's a deal.
Jason: In a way, yeah.
Elizabeth: But what if both people break their promises? I mean, should they just hold on, live with the disappointment, lower their expectations and just be happy with what's left? Or should they set each other free?
Priest: There's one body --
Helena: It's okay.
Priest: And one spirit --
Helena: What's he saying?
Priest: Even as you're called in one hope of your calling. What have you chosen for the name?
Helena: Nikolai Mikkos Nikolyevich Cassadine.
Nikolas: My son's name is Spencer.
Lorenzo: You have no idea how much pleasure it's going to give me to destroy this thing once this is over.
Skye: Is that even a possibility? Or will this shipment just lead to another and another?
Lorenzo: Well, I think if this transfer is successful, my associates won't risk repeating themselves. I don't think they'll try to move anything this crucial through my networks again. And if the transfer fails, I'll be dead, so either way, this could be my last job.
Skye: Well, then we will just have to make sure that it doesn't fail, because your daughter and I -- we want you around for a very long time.
Sam: Okay, Lucky. I got everything set up for tonight at the Metro Court restaurant. You and Elizabeth will have a table for two by the window -- it's the best table, by the way -- and I arranged for some flowers to arrive right after you're seated.
Lucky: Thank you.
Sam: Well, I'm just -- I'm assuming that there's got to be some big plans for tonight?
Lucky: Yeah. Elizabeth and I -- we've been together since high school. Did you know that? Well, we've been through some trouble but -- anyway, you know what?
Lucky: I'm going to -- I'm going to -- tonight's the night. I'm going to try and convince her to give us another try.
Jason: When someone you love needs you, you stand by them, you know? You stay loyal, you have faith, even when they're making mistakes.
Elizabeth: Some mistakes are pretty difficult to get past.
Jason: Yeah, they are. But everybody makes mistakes. I think if you left someone who needs you, I -- I don't think you could be happy.
Elizabeth: You would never fail someone like that.
Jason: I -- I don't know. I wouldn't want to.
Elizabeth: And it's even more complicated when a child is involved, because every child has the right to the best life its parents can provide.
Jason: And I know that's what you want for your baby.
Elizabeth: Is that what you want for yours?
Carly: No, he didn’t. Oh. Sonny!
Sonny: Keep it down. We're in the middle of the civil war here.
Michael: Dad's making Fettuccine Alfredo tonight.
Carly: Dad's leaving.
Sonny: Well, since you didn't want to move in to my house, you know, I just decided that it'd be best to move in here. So, look, the –
Lucky: Why are you so invested in me and Elizabeth getting back together?
Jason: I don't understand what a child that doesn't exist has to do with anything.
Elizabeth: Maybe your child does exist.
Carly: I am trying to move on. Jax is better for me.
Sonny: You know, deep down, traveling from town to town, you know, but it doesn't always work out that way.
