Mac: Yeah, all right. Great. Yeah, stay here for just a few minutes. All right. Wait a sec, where do you think you're going?

Luke: You can stand here and haggle for hostages all you want. I'm getting my daughter out of there!

Mac: Now, you -- Luke, Luke, Luke! Lulu is not the only person in that lobby, all right? She's not the only one trapped in there. There are other lives to be taken into consideration -- like Robin's.

Luke: Then why are you standing here? You've given them all this extra time to secure their positions.

Lucky: What's going on?

Mac: Your father is unhappy with the way the PCPD is handling this situation.

Luke: You're doing it too slow!

Mac: I'm warning you. You go into that building, you're under arrest.

Luke: I'm going in. Are you with me?

Jason: These guys are not looking to negotiate. They're waiting for the vault to open. Can you tell me when that's going to be, exactly?

Spinelli: Okay -- um -- well, the emergency shutdown was triggered at 5:27 p.m., so tomorrow -- 5:27 a.m. and 23 seconds.

Jason: Okay. If the hostages aren't out by then, I'm afraid Craig's going to start killing them to cover his escape.

[Phone rings]

Skye: Hello? Lorenzo is still having surgery.

Jason: Look, I need some answers, okay? Can you just call me as soon as Alcazar wakes up?

Skye: I don't even know if Lorenzo's going to wake up. Right now I care more about him surviving this operation than I do about whatever he has stashed inside that vault at the Metro Court.

Monica: So Alcazar is responsible for Alan and Emily being held hostage.

Patrick: Suction. Clamp.

Noah: Look, look -- wait, wait, wait, slow down, slow down. You cannot risk perforating the vessel.

Patrick: The longer I take to operate, the longer it takes for Mr. Alcazar to regain consciousness.

Noah: If you rush through this, you could lose this man.

Patrick: And if I don't, I could lose Robin.

Elizabeth: Her pressure is dropping.

Emily: We need to elevate her legs.

Nikolas: Okay, I'll prop her up.

Elizabeth: She's losing too much blood.

Emily: There's nothing else I can do for her. Robin needs surgery.

James: Hey -- didn't I make myself clear? You talk, you die.

Sam: We can't wait for the police to rescue us. We're going to have to get out of here ourselves.

Lulu: How?

Sam: There's a door at the end of the hall that leads to the parking lot.

Lulu: But even if we do make it over there, how do we get out? They sealed off all the exits.

Sam: No, no, no, the employee break room. There's an entrance there.

Lulu: I'm in. What do you want me to do?

Carly: Whatever you are planning, forget it. I am not going to let you risk your life to save me.

Sonny: Our sons need you, Carly.

Carly: They need both of us. I'm not leaving here without you.


[Carly screams]

Sonny: You okay?

James: She's fine. Oh, dear. Missed. It appears from your mutterings back and forth that you've started to forget the guidelines for these proceedings. Allow me to refresh your memory. You are hostages -- you cooperate or you die. There are no other options. It's true that my team and I are waiting for the vault to open. We'd very much like to acquire what's inside. However, there comes a point at which any undertaking becomes untenable. So if you force us to cut our losses and leave without the item we came here for, we shall reciprocate by locking you up in the lobby and blowing you to kingdom come. So, you see, your ability to follow instructions may very well save your lives.

Patrick: I see it. The debris migrated into the parietal lobe. It's deeply embedded, but it's proximal -- the field's clear. Forceps.

Noah: It would be safer to navigate around the incision areas, go in from the side.

Patrick: That could add hours to the procedure. We don't have time.

Noah: The patient's vitals are holding steady.

Patrick: Meanwhile, Robin could be bleeding to death from a gunshot wound.

Noah: Patrick, right now you have a responsibility to this patient. You owe him every chance at a good recovery.

Patrick: I don't owe Mr. Alcazar anything. I already saved his life. The only reason I agreed to do this procedure is because he's got information that could get Robin out of that hotel to save her life.

Noah: Alcazar is your patient! Forget your personal issues. Do the damn job!

Patrick: My job is to remove this shrapnel. The way I choose to do it is up to me.

Skye: Lorenzo's been unconscious for hours. There's no way he could've been involved in a hostage-taking situation.

Monica: Well, if those men are working for Alcazar, they're there because of what Alcazar has in that vault.

Skye: Monica, I don't know what you're talking about. Lots of people keep lots of things in hotel vaults. You know, it's --

Monica: Only one is an arms dealer. And why would Alcazar put something in a hotel vault? He's got armed guards patrolling that fortress he calls a home, unless maybe -- maybe he was trying to protect you and Lila Rae? Then he must've realized that this could happen. Did you? Did you, Skye? How could you? How could you send the man you think of as your father over to Metro Court knowing his life could be in danger?

Luke: I am not hanging your sister's life on police procedure.

Lucky: Dad, I want Lulu as safe as you do, but charging in there will only make things worse.

Luke: We passed "worse" about a half-hour ago.

Lucky: If you go rushing in there, it could get Lulu shot just like Robin. So could Elizabeth and Nikolas. These guys are desperate, Dad. They got nothing to lose, we do.

Jason: Listen to me; the cops are going to do this by the book, okay? They're going to try to negotiate to get the hostages released. When that doesn't work, they're going to send a tactical team in, and they're going to hope that Craig's going to panic and abandon the hostages. It's not going to happen, he won't.

Spinelli: Well, you -- you got to warn the cops. Oh, come on, man! I know you have an allergic reaction to law enforcement, but there are lives at stake here!

Jason: Get --

Ric: Mac? Where are we with the hostages?

Mac: Robin's been shot. No word on the others.

Ric: How you holding up?

Mac: Look, I don't know if I can do this. If I say or do something, and then she doesn't make it out --

Ric: Okay -- okay, Mac, don't worry about it. I'll take it from here. You got a dedicated line? Thank you.

Mac: There's a lot of lives at stake. Don't screw it up.

James: I imagine you're thinking about the detonator. Which one of us has it? Are we going to trigger it? After all, 60 seconds isn't that long. And will we make it out on time? I can assure you that our exit strategy is very well planned. We'll be leaving, you'll be staying. The only question is if any of you will be in one piece. You, Michael Corinthos Jr., I doubt you're conversant in the subject of explosives.

Sonny: I didn't go to high school, so I don't know what "conversant" means.

James: Take a guess.

Sonny: Okay. You got enough plastique here taped to the walls to blow this lobby sky-high.

James: Well, depending on its structural integrity, the explosion might take the whole building down. I have to admit that it's tempting to see what will happen. Oh, well. We'll just have to wait for that later.

Carly: I know his voice.

Sonny: Can you place it?

Carly: No, not without seeing his face.

Sonny: No, no, don't even think about it.

Carly: Don't you want to know who he is and why the hell he's doing this?

Sonny: We know why he wants the briefcase that Alcazar put in that vault.

Carly: And after he gets it, he's going to blow the entire lobby.

Sonny: We got 12 hours --

Carly: We're just going to sit here?

Sonny: We got 12 hours before the vault opens. That gives us enough time to figure out a way to get out of here without you having to rip that mask off his face. 'Don't want to shake his confidence. Let him think he's in control of the situation.

[Phone rings]

James: That would be the hostage negotiator preparing to bargain for your lives, but I'd rather give you the opportunity to win them back. So we're going to play another little game, which I like to call musical hostages. The rules are very simple.


James: If I pair you off periodically, and at the end of each round, the one without a partner loses. Simple.

Lulu: What happens when there's an even number of people?

James: That's an excellent question -- you get 20 points.

[Phone stops ringing]

James: I guess I'm going to have to find someone to get rid of. Hmm.

James: I think I'll start with you.

James: Come on. We won't be needing you at the moment.

Nikolas: Hey, take me instead.

James: You'll have to wait for the next round. I've already made my selection.

Nikolas: Can't you see she's pregnant?

James: Well, chivalry may not be dead, but she will if you don't back off. So sit down before I change my mind and play shoot-the-hostage instead. Go.

Lulu: Where are they taking Elizabeth?

Nikolas: I don't know.

Lulu: We have to do something to help her.

Sam: No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no -- you would've been better off minding your own business.

Mateo: Where would that have left you?

Sam: What do you care?

Mateo: I would never do anything to harm you.

Sam: Oh, really? What about them?

Emily: No -- we have to keep pressure on the wound! She's going to bleed to death!

James: Put Mrs. Corinthos with the commissioner's niece.

Sonny: No, wait, wait, wait --

Carly: Why? Why? Why? Emily's the doctor. I can't help her.

James: Now, this is your hotel. As you pointed out, the guests are your responsibility.

Carly: I can't help Robin! I don't know how!

James: Then it should be fun to watch you make it up as you go.

Woman: Where do you want him, boss?

James: Looks like you're the odd man out. Take care of him.

Carly: Robin won't last five minutes if Max doesn't help me.

James: All right.

Max: Thanks, Mrs. C, I owe you one.

Sonny: How's Robin doing?

Emily: She's going to bleed to death if we don't find some way to get her out of here.

Patrick: There, got it. Ready to close. The minute I finish these sutures, I want Mr. Alcazar brought back to consciousness.

Noah: Why don't you just throw some cold water on him? You know, Patrick, you're skating dangerously close to breach of procedure.

Patrick: Nothing I did violated medical ethics. It was a success.

Noah: You refused to consider an alternate approach, one which might've lowered the side effects.

Patrick: Look, you may not agree with my methods, but the bullet fragment is out and the tissue damage is minimal -- which means the surgery was a success.

Noah: But we won't know that till he wakes up. I just hope you didn't sacrifice results for speed. '''

Luke: I can't just stand here knowing Lulu's in danger.

Lucky: How's it going to help Lulu if you walk in there and get yourself killed? She's still trying to deal with the fact that Mom is gone.

Luke: What does that have to do with anything?

Lucky: Because you're not Superman. You can't walk in there and walk out like --

Luke: Lucky, face it. These flatfoots are useless, this Swat team couldn't swat flies. You and me -- we're your sister's best hope.

Skye: I know you're terrified for Alan and Emily. So am I.

Monica: Then tell me what Alcazar has to do with the hostage crisis.

Skye: Nothing.

Monica: Oh -- you're going to defend him with your dying breath, aren't you?

Skye: Lorenzo is my child's father.

Monica: And Alan is your father. He adopted you, he made you part of the family, and now he's sitting over and he needs your help!

Skye: Is Lorenzo all right?

Noah: Uh -- the surgery went quicker than expected. Unfortunately, we won't know if there's any complications until he regains consciousness.

[Phone rings]

James: That must be the commissioner, no doubt waiting for an update on his niece. What shall I tell him?

Carly: To blow your head off?


James: Yes?

Ric: This is district attorney Richard Lansing.

James: Oh. What about Commissioner Scorpio?

Ric: Well, he felt that I might be in a better position to help you.

James: Is that so?

Ric: Is there anything that I can get you to make you more comfortable in there?

James: Well, let me think about it, Mr. Lansing. I'll get back to you.

Ric: The man on the phone didn't sound panicked or particularly worried about anything, which means he doesn't have a lot of incentive to negotiate.

Mac: What about Robin?

Ric: He didn't mention her.


Jason: Ric could be doing damage control for Alcazar.

Spinelli: But how?

Jason: How? He'll sacrifice the hostages so the gunmen can't get to Alcazar's briefcase.

Spinelli: Oh, come on. The D.A. of Darkness gives me the crawls, too, but do you -- do you really think he'd let the hostages die?

Jason: I'm not going to wait to find out. Let's go.

Patrick: We've increased Mr. Alcazar's oxygen level. Hopefully he'll wake up soon enough to answer some questions --

Skye: I'd like to discuss Lorenzo's condition with nobody but his doctor. So, Monica, unless you're here for a consult, I'd appreciate it if you'd leave.

Monica: I liked you lots better when you were a drunk.

Skye: Was there a problem with Lorenzo's surgery?

Patrick: As far as I'm concerned, it was a success. I found and extracted the bullet fragments in the quickest and safest way possible.

Skye: Well, why would there be any complications?

Noah: Well, in every surgery --

Skye: You're leaving?

Patrick: I did my part; my father can do the rest.

Noah: Patrick, Patrick -- wait, Patrick. Listen to me. If something happens to Alcazar, you could lose your license.

Patrick: You think I'm worried about my career? The woman I love could be dying.

Skye: What aren't you telling me about Lorenzo's surgery?

Patrick: Wait, hold the elevator!

Monica: Patrick -- Patrick? Oh.

Epiphany: Don't take it personally. Dr. Drake only has one thing on his mind, and that's getting to Robin Scorpio. She's trapped inside the Metro Court.

Monica: Well, so are Alan and Emily.

Epiphany: Well, that might be a blessing in disguise.

Monica: Listen, Epiphany, were you on the O.R. surgical team that operated on Lorenzo Alcazar?

Epiphany: Yes, I was the senior surgical nurse.

Monica: Did you get the impression or -- or feel anything that -- that Alcazar might know something about what's going on over there?

Epiphany: Well, Dr. Drake Jr. Sure seemed to think so.

Monica: Really? Thank you.

[Phone rings]

Mac: Scorpio.

Monica: Mac? Mac, hi, it's Monica. Uh -- listen, I think you should come over here to the hospital and question Skye. I think she just may know why there are gunmen over there at the Metro Court.

Mac: I'm on my way.

Det. Rodriguez: The press overhead the guys talking about the commissioner's niece. They want a statement.

Ric: All right, why don't you just tell the press that we're doing everything that we can to secure the safe release of Dr. Scorpio.

Det. Rodriguez: They agreed to a release her?

Ric: They will. Captain, how long before you can fill that entire lobby with tear gas?

Captain: A few seconds. Why?

Ric: We got to do something to rattle this guy's cage.


Luke: Man, this is ridiculous. You got a little Napoleonic D.A. over there barking orders at a bunch of toy soldiers. Inside, they're staring down the barrel of a gun. Are you going to put your sister's life in Lansing's hands?

Lucky: Dad, there's no guarantee that you can stroll in there and bring Lulu out.

Luke: You don't understand. I know this place. When Carly took it over, I was in charge of renovations. All I got to do is get in there. You just run interference for me with these spuds, and I will get the situation in hand -- not just for Lulu, but for Elizabeth and the baby.

Elizabeth: I will do whatever you want. Please, just don't hurt my baby!

[Door locks]

Elizabeth: No, no, no, no, no, no, don't leave me in here! Please don't leave me in here! You can't do this!

[Elizabeth sighs]


Elizabeth: Dr. Quartermaine? Dr. Quartermaine, can you hear me?

Alan: Where -- where's Robin?

Elizabeth: She's all right. Emily's taking care of her. Don't worry. We're going to get out of here somehow. Someone is going to come get us.

Sam: You knew how to fight once. I'm sure you could manage it again.

Woman: No, no, no! Please -- please don't! Please!

James: Down.

Sam: Excuse me. The people who are helping out Robin -- they could use a hand.

James: Are you offering your services?

Sam: I'm not a nurse, but I know how to apply pressure to a wound.

James: I'll keep you in mind.

Sam: I've heard that voice before.

Lulu: He's back. Now's our chance.

Nikolas: Chance for what?

Lulu: If we go to the break room, we could sneak out the back and get help.

Nikolas: No, you stay -- you stay right here.

Carly: How's her pulse?

Max: It's weak, but it's steady.

Carly: Not for long. She is losing so much blood and this thing is soaked. We're going to have to replace it with something else.

Max: Here, take this.

Emily: Carly, don't! Her blood won't be able to clot if you take that off. Add the jacket on top.

Max: All right, let's put it on top.

James: Your shift is over, Doctor.

Emily: I was just trying to help them get the bleeding under control.

James: Give another tip like that, you'll be bleeding faster than your patient.

Sonny: She made a mistake. It's not going to happen again.

James: Make sure of it.

Sonny: Okay, you want to help? You sit here, pretend to cooperate. The less attention you call to yourself, the easier it will be to slip out of here if there's an opening.

Emily: I'm not leaving here until we're all released.

Sonny: Somebody has to tell the cops that this lobby is wired to explode.

Jason: Okay, call up the plans of the hotel. I want to know where every possible entrance is and how to access it.

Spinelli: All right, well, what's the plan?

Jason: I'm going to take out as many gunmen as possible and get the hostages out.

Spinelli: Dude -- but, dude, that's not a plan, that's a suicide mission. Come on! I mean, haven't you ever heard of strength in numbers?

Jason: Cops are not an option.

Spinelli: What about Mr. Corinthos Sir's protectors of the night? You know, you can -- you can sneak up on the bad guys like an army rising out of the shadow--

Jason: Spinelli, it's the same reason the cops can't send a swat team. If there's a shootout, the hostages will get caught in the crossfire. The best chance is for me to just go in there and try to take the gunmen out one by one.

Spinelli: Or die trying.

Jason: It's better me than anybody else.

Noah: The bullet fragments were lodged in a very, very sensitive area. Even under the best of conditions, it's a difficult surgery, and unfortunately, decisions had to be made based on time constraints.

Skye: Doctor, my priority is seeing Lorenzo smile, hearing his voice again. I need to know if that's even possible. What is the worst that can happen to Lorenzo if there are complications?

Mac: I understand you have information about the hostage situation.

Skye: I don't know anything.

Monica: She is lying. Alcazar put something in the vault at the Metro Court, and those gunmen are most likely after it.

Skye: Monica's just grasping at straws.

Monica: Oh --

Skye: She wants to feel like she's being useful, but, really, Monica, wild speculations don't help anyone.

Mac: Listen, my niece was shot. If you know something, anything that could help get those hostages released, you better tell me now.

Patrick: Is there any word on Robin?

Ric: Not since the initial report that she'd been shot. We're trying to negotiate --

Patrick: Okay, we need to keep trying; we need to find out how badly --

Ric: Patrick, if you push this, it could go bad.

Patrick: Look, if she doesn't get out of that lobby, she's going to die. Ric, please, just find out.

[Phone rings]

James: Perhaps you don't understand the protocol. When I say "I'll get back to you," that indicates that you should wait for the phone to ring.

Ric: Yes, I understand. Can you -- can you give us an update on Robin Scorpio?

James: Well, I shot her in the stomach. She's still breathing, but she's also still bleeding.

Ric: Why don't you let us take her out?

James: I'm not going to be able to release any of the hostages. You see, I've grown quite attached to the lot of them.

Ric: Just at least let us get some medical supplies in there.

James: I'll get back to you. To be clear, that means you should wait for my call.

Ric: You just tell me what you want and I will get it for you. Look, he may allow us to get some supplies in there.

Patrick: Well, we better think fast, because I know she doesn't have much time.

Ric: Look, I wouldn't get your hopes up. This guy doesn't care whether Robin lives or dies.

Lucky: You know that I blame myself for Elizabeth being in that lobby. Now you're trying to use it to your advantage.

Luke: What are you talking about? What advantage? Your wife, your child, and your sister are all in there. You're going to trust their lives to these clowns?

Lucky: You don't even know how badly I want to be in there.

Luke: Well, then why are we standing here?

Lucky: We wouldn't even know how many guys we'd be going up against.

Luke: We will once we get inside, Lucky. Meanwhile, the more desperate they get in there, the more likely they are to pop another one of the hostages --

Lucky: Well, going in there could get more hostages killed. I'm not going to take that risk, and neither will you.

Jason: Craig's people probably took the security cameras out, but you might be able to pull up footage of the moment the gunmen entered the lobby, okay?

Spinelli: Yeah.

Jason: Spinelli, I need to know how many people Craig has and what kind of weapons they were carrying.

Spinelli: Okay, I'm on it.

Jason: Okay? Also, find out about James Craig, everything you can. It might be a fake identity. If it is, there's got to be some kind of information trail.

Spinelli: Okay, right. I'm -- I'm running a background check, and I'm already pulling up his phone records.

Jason: Okay, then I want you to cross-reference that with Alcazar's numbers, see if there's any matching numbers we can find.

Spinelli: Dude --

Jason: What? What?

Spinelli: I'm doing, like, 50 things right now. What do you need first?

Jason: Footage of the lobby, please.

Spinelli: Okay. All right -- oh, God, the system's running slow because the -- the cops are crowding the whole network. Um -- it might take a few minutes, okay? Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Got it -- Jackal prevails. Oh, my --

Jason: Go back. Okay, stop right -- stop.

Spinelli: Okay.

Jason: No, no, right there. That's got to be Craig.

Spinelli: Man, these are seriously bad dudes. Stone Cold, you've got to get in there.

Nikolas: Lulu, get back here. Get over here.

Carly: Oh, man.

Max: Mrs. C, if you need a break, I can take over.

Carly: Max, you shouldn't even be in here. If I didn't put you between me and Sonny's fight, you'd be in the coffee shop right now, not involved in this mess.

Max: No, no. No, no, I'd rather be in here -- than out there worrying about you.

James: Going somewhere?

Lulu: I just wanted to get some water.

James: Oh, apparently, you don't need those pretty little legs to get it. So we'll just shoot the right one.

Lulu: No, please.

Carly: I can't do this.

Max: Mrs. C, what are you doing?

Carly: I can't do this!

Max: Sit down, sit down.

Carly: I don't even like Robin -- and here I am covered with her contaminated blood! Why should I risk my life to save hers?

James: Well, if you'd rather sit back and watch her die, by all means.

Carly: I don't even know if she is breathing. I am not a doctor.

James: Does she have a pulse?

Max: I don't know.

Carly: You have to let Emily help her.

James: Emily, would you care to assist?

Emily: Of course.

James: Say "please." Pretty, pretty please?

Emily: Ple-- please.

James: And what are you willing to give me back in return, Emily, darling? Hmm?

James: I'm sure we can come up with a mutually beneficial arrangement. Should we go somewhere less public?

Nikolas: You lay a hand on her, I swear --

Lulu: No! No, please, please --

Sonny: No! Come here.

Lulu: Don't hurt my brother! This is my fault!

James: Defiance is clearly a family trait. You should learn from his example.

Emily: Look, Nikolas was acting on instinct. He was afraid that you were going to hurt me.

James: Are you afraid?

Emily: Which answer would save Nikolas?

James: That one. Congratulations, the lovely lady just bought you some more time. Use it wisely. And since you seem to be so adept at controlling him, Nikolas will stay with you for the foreseeable future. Let's change things up a bit, shall we? Here we go.

Lulu: No, no!

Sonny: Okay, don't let him yank your chain. If you don't get a grip, you're going to get us all killed.

Lulu: Oh -- oh!

James: You, over with her.

Max: What about Robin?

James: You, take over.

Lulu: Me?

James: You obviously need --

Lulu: Ow!

James: Something to occupy your time. You, feel free to help. We can't risk infecting the entire room, can we?

Carly: It's okay, I got it. It's okay.

Goon: Move.

Carly: Robin needs a doctor.

James: Yes, well, Emily and I still have to finalize a few details. If you'll excuse us.

Sonny: Emily's been through enough. She shouldn't have to watch you die.

Monica: Epiphany was in O.R. when Alcazar was having surgery and she told me that Patrick thought that Alcazar had information about the hostage situation.

Noah: Well, I don't know enough about Alcazar or the situation in the hotel to know if he's right.

Skye: Which is why we shouldn't waste our time making wild speculations. It's really not helping the people any, now, is it?

Monica: And why don't you stop protecting Alcazar and tell Mac everything you know about what's going on over at that hotel?

Skye: I don't know anything.

Monica: You lying bitch!

Mac: If you're withholding information, and Robin -- or anyone else in that lobby -- dies because of it, it'll be on your head.

Emily: Where are we going?

James: I thought you might want a few moments to find out what you're willing to do to help poor Dr. Scorpio.

Emily: Robin needs surgery. You have to let her out of here.

James: I don't have to do anything.

Emily: If she's not evacuated soon, Robin is going to bleed to death. Nothing in that vault could be worth someone's life.

James: Well, that's a matter of opinion, darling.

Emily: My -- Dad? Hi. Are you all right?

Elizabeth: He's a little disoriented. I think he has a concussion.

Alan: How's Robin?

Emily: I did what I could to control the bleeding, but her pulse is getting weaker.

Alan: Okay, who's with her now?

Emily: Carly and Lulu.

Alan: Listen, she is critically injured. Her low blood volume could stop her heart anytime. I've really got to go out there --

Emily: No, no, no -- you need to lie down, okay?

Alan: We -- we have to go out there for her, Em. Come on, now.

James: I'm afraid only one of you will be rejoining the group, so which one will it be?

Elizabeth: I'll go.

Emily: You sure?

Elizabeth: You stay with your dad. Yes. Here, take this. I'll be fine.

Elizabeth: Okay.

James: Come on. Go.

[Alan pants]

Emily: Dad, a concussion would explain the dizziness but not the shortness of breath. Do you feel any pain?

Alan: Oh -- in my chest.

Det. Rodriguez: There are two service corridors that can be entered through the loading dock.

Lucky: Yeah, but there's no direct access to the lobby. What if we -- um --

Det. Rodriguez: You all right?

Lucky: Give me a minute. Dad, there's no way I'm letting you do this.

Ric: Look, Patrick, these people have a definite objective.

Patrick: You think I care?

Ric: You should because it's the only reason that they haven't negotiated.

Patrick: I don't give a damn. Just find out what they want in exchange for Robin.

James: Have a seat.

Elizabeth: But I thought you brought me out here to help with Robin.

James: Well, you thought wrong.

[Phone rings]

James: There's a regrettable lack of courtesy in this town. Yes?

Ric: If Dr. Scorpio dies, you are looking at murder with special circumstances, and that is the death penalty. For her sake, as well as yours, I'd like to propose an alternative.

James: I'm listening.

Ric: What needs to go in?

Patrick: Okay, we need gloves, sterile sponges, a scalpel --

James: Why not bring in the whole bloody O.R.?

Ric: It's too much.

Patrick: Listen to me; I need to know the exact location --

James: No, we don't have to do anything. We're going to leave everything the way it is. Bye.

Patrick: -- Listen -- damn it!

Skye: Lorenzo, if the police find out about that shipment, you could go to prison for espionage for the rest of your life. I will not let that happen.

[Lorenzo groans]

Skye: Lorenzo?

Lorenzo: Open the doors.

Jason: What'd he say?

Skye: I'm -- I'm not too sure. I -- I don't know. Lorenzo, can you -- can you hear me?

Lorenzo: Skye --

Skye: I'm right here.

Lorenzo: Huh? Oh, where am I?

Skye: You're at the hospital. You had surgery to remove the rest of the bullet.

Lorenzo: Who shot me?

Skye: Sonny.

Lorenzo: I don't like him.

Skye: I really should go call a doctor.

Jason: No, I'm sorry, we -- we don't have time. What's -- what's the code to open the briefcase?

Lorenzo: What briefcase?

Jason: The one you put in the vault at the Metro Court.

Skye: You know, Lorenzo -- the one with the shipment for Mr. Craig.

Lorenzo: I don't handle shipments. Talk to Luis.

Skye: Luis? Luis is dead, Lorenzo. Come on, you known that he's been dead for years.

Lorenzo: My brother is dead?

Jason: Okay, it's -- it's an Equinox briefcase. We have to -- we have to disarm the self-destruct timer. What is the code?

Lorenzo: I don't know.

Jason: It's -- it's six numbers.

Skye: The first three are 7-6-7.

Jason: What -- what's the rest? I need the rest of the combination or people are going to die!

Lorenzo: I told you I don't know.

Alan: You should be out there with Robin.

Emily: You can barely catch your breath.

Alan: It's a panic attack, it'll pass.

Emily: You could be having an M.I.

Alan: Hey, it's your grandfather with the heart condition, not me.

Emily: Dad, I just need you to stay here and rest, okay?

Alan: I was a doctor before you were even born. I know the difference between a panic attack and a heart attack. Now, I just need to walk around for a few -- oh --

Emily: No -- oh, all right, Dad, just lie back. Lie back, okay? I need you to take some deep breaths. You hear me?

[Alan groans]

Emily: Dad, just stay with me. Dad, can you hear me? Help! Somebody help me in here! Here we go.

Nikolas: Where's Emily?

James: Your girlfriend is tending to her father. Tell me, is she as beautiful out of her dress as she is in it?

Nikolas: You lay a hand on her, and I will kill you.

James: I'm not the one living on borrowed time. But if you want to survive this, you might want to counsel your friend on the benefits of compliance.

Sonny: I'd rather talk to you.

James: About what?

Sonny: I want to make you an offer.

James: Find another office for Mr. Corinthos. See to it that he's comfortable.

Lulu: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I should've listened to Nikolas and stayed where I was supposed to.

Carly: You took a chance to make things better. There's nothing wrong with that.

Lulu: Robin's not getting better, is she?

Carly: She's not going to die. Do you hear me, you self-righteous twit? I am not going to let everyone blame me for letting you bleed to death. Now, you suck it up and you live.

Robin: What are you doing?

Carly: I'm saving your life.

Luke: You just turn around and walk away.

Lucky: Dad, if you go in there, you could get someone killed.

Ric: Lucky, I need you to take -- oh, no. No, no. No way. No way. Take that off.

Luke: My kid is in there.

Ric: You know what? Everybody in that lobby has somebody out here who's terrified for them. They're not donning swat gear and storming the hotel, okay, and neither are you. Lucky, take your father downtown, arrest him with obstruction of justice.

Luke: Don't even think about it!

Lucky: Rodriguez?

Luke: I can't believe this.

Det. Rodriguez: Luke Spencer, you have the right to remain silent.

Luke: Yeah, I know this by heart, all right?

Det. Rodriguez: Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.

Luke: I can't believe --

Det. Rodriguez: You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.

Ric: Drake! No, hold your fire! This might be the opening we needed.

Sam: Where did they take you?

Elizabeth: To an office down the hall.

Sam: Past the boutique?

Elizabeth: Yeah.

Sam: Were there any guards there?

Elizabeth: I don't know. Why?

Sam: Because the boutique manager left her phone with me at the front desk this morning, and I went to bring it back and she was already gone.

Elizabeth: Where is it now?

Sam: It's in the top drawer. Look, if one of us could go there, I'm sure --

Elizabeth: No, don't -- don't even think of it. If they catch you making a phone call, they're going to kill you.

Sam: No, are you kidding me? I'm not going to wait here, waiting to get killed.

James: There seems to be a lot of chatter coming from this side of the room. I think a time-out is in order. Come here, you. You really, really shouldn't have done that.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Lorenzo: Don't know what you're talking about.

Jason: Get me inside the hotel.

Sam: What is this for?

James: Put it on.

Patrick: I just want to help Robin.

James: I want you to relay a message -- a hostage will die.
