Carly: I know you're disappointed that after this crisis, your father and I are going to still get a divorce.
Michael: It's not fair. You said dad did all this great stuff. Why are you going to divorce him?
Sonny: Buddy, buddy? I want to talk to your mother, okay?
Michael: Okay. Come on.
Carly: Please don't try and talk me into staying.
Sonny: You heard Michael. I mean, it's just not fair what you're doing -- to the boys, to me, but especially to what's in your heart.
Elizabeth: Jason, you need to call me. Sam came by earlier and told me about not being able to get pregnant. I'm so sorry. I know how hard that must be for the both of you. And it just made me realize that I just want to do what's right for our baby '
James: Men like us must decide what truly matters in our lives and act upon it. So act now, Mr. Morgan, and leave while you still can.
Monica: He's in full arrest. Code blue.
Emily: Hang in there, Dad, they're coming, all right? You're going to be okay.
Russell: Let me through.
Monica: I don't know what happened. He just crashed. He was fine.
Emily: We were talking, he was okay.
Monica: Come on, Alan.
Russell: Again. Clear.
Russell: Is there a pulse?
Nurse: No pulse.
Russell: Give him 300 milligrams --
Monica: I got it.
Russell: Continue CPR.
Emily: He's going to pull through.
Emily: He's going to pull through.
Edward: Dear God, what's happening?
Tracy: He was fine an hour ago, he was talking to me.
Russell: Again. Clear. Get those people out of here, Monica.
Tracy: I'm his sister!
Monica: Tracy, please.
Emily: Come on; let the doctors do their work.
Russell: We have a pulse.
Monica: Oh -- thank God.
Russell: Monica, I need to talk to you.
Lucky: Was that Audrey? You should just call her back.
Elizabeth: I was just leaving her a message. I wanted her to know that I was going to stay for a few more hours.
Lucky: What -- do you feel all right?
Elizabeth: Yeah. Yeah, it's just a precaution. Those flowers are beautiful, but you didn't have to.
Lucky: Why not? You love flowers. You know, I think it's smart that you stay here a little while longer after everything you went through in the lobby and -- and, you know, the elevator. I just thank God for Jason and --
Elizabeth: I know you tried to find me.
Lucky: It's okay. I'm grateful to Jason. I mean, you should be, too. You know, I'm not -- I'm not sure how, but something in me got all -- all twisted.
Elizabeth: Drugs can do that to a peon.
Lucky: No, it was before the drugs. It -- there was this disconnect. I think it started when you were the surrogate mother for Jax's baby.
Elizabeth: I wanted to help us out financially and do something nice for them.
Lucky: Well, I thought I could handle it, but somehow I lost myself and --
Elizabeth: Because it was too much to ask of any man. You were really good to me when I lost that baby.
Lucky: I can't stand to see you in pain. I never could. I promised you that I would always protect you. I failed.
Sonny: We -- we can't keep lying to ourselves about how, you know, we feel.
Carly: I can't do this.
Sonny: Now, I get it, okay, I get it that, you know, you love Jax because of all the ways he's not like me.
Carly: Don't do this, please. Please, just don't do this.
Sonny: No -- I mean, look, I'm going to be honest with you. I don't like seeing you two together. I don't like the way Jax is, you know, with the boys -- how good he is and everything. I don't like the way you look at him, the way -- I mean, that's the way you used to look at me. You know, I was always the guy that you -- you couldn't get enough of.
Carly: If you -- if you can't t me go for me, can you let me go for the boys, please?
Sonny: I don't want to put the boys in the middle of this, and I -- I realized, you know, that I had to accept you with Jax. But in the last 24 hours, it's clear that you love me.
Carly: That's not the point.
Sonny: We -- we were facing death. There is no doubt -- like it or not, we're in this life together.
Tracy: How is he?
Russell: His heart is stable for now.
Emily: You always said he was as strong as a horse.
Edward: Well, if I can overcome a heart condition, so can Alan.
Monica: I will admit he had me worried there.
Russell: Now, you know this is a temporary reprieve at best?
Monica: I know it was touch-and-go, but my husband is strong.
Russell: Well, you're a highly confident, highly respected cardiologist, and you know your husband's heart can give out at any moment.
Monica: I know that you didn't expect him to regain consciousness after the surgery, and he did.
Russell: I'm sorry. In my opinion, this patient is dying. Don't lead these people on. Tell them, let them say their goodbyes. They'll thank you for it later.
Monica: How much time do you estimate that he has?
Russell: Well, frankly, I'm stunned he's still alive. It's as if he's holding out for something.
Monica: He's waiting for our son.
Jason: Let's go, Craig, your helicopter's waiting.
James: Oh, you're too clever by half, Mr. Morgan. So why don't you put your wits to work for your own self-preservation? If you try to stop me, I will take you down. Surely someone will grieve when I put a bullet between your eyes.
Lucky: You know, I have so much to be grateful for. You're alive. You're safe. You held on to that baby, even when you thought you might lose it.
Elizabeth: This baby is strong.
Lucky: So are you, even when people are coming at you from every side. I never should've asked you to marry me again. I know it was too much pressure on both of us.
Elizabeth: I'm so tired of pressure and guilt and being afraid, and I just want to put last night and everything that led up to it behind me.
Lucky: I'm going to help. You're going to have this baby in peace -- without me and everyone else chirping in your ear.
Elizabeth: I don't understand.
Lucky: This is me letting go. You've been through too much pain and I've caused too much of that. You just don't do that to someone you love. It ends right here, right now. I want you and the children to be happy, and I will be around here for whenever you need me. But you and I, we are not going to get back together, and I'm okay.
Elizabeth: Lucky, I'm --
Lucky: Elizabeth, do not feel sorry for me. I've wasted too much time feeling sorry for myself.
Lucky: I'm finally doing what's right -- what's right for both of us.
Carly: You know, you lose perspective when you almost die. Things get crazy and -- and scary, and then you survive and you're grateful, and then, you know, things are magnified irrationally -- that's why we slept together, Sonny.
Sonny: Okay, so you think love is irrational?
Carly: No, I don't. I think us loving each other is irrational.
Carly: What we did -- Sonny, we survived, and we were grateful. We didn't die. It's living that we can't do.
Sonny: We've never been more alive than the last 24 hours. Some people go through a lifetime not knowing that connection.
Carly: Okay, all right. But when things are good and normal and ordinary, we test each other in ways that are horrible, and we always have.
Sonny: Things are going to be different this time. We couldn't even have this conversation two years ago.
Carly: We shouldn't be having it now.
Sonny: Why? Because you think people are incapable of change?
Carly: No, I know they're capable of change. A year ago we were broken, and we were rebuilding ourselves, and I'm rebuilding myself from rock bottom and I know what I want the new me to look like. And my first priority after my boys is -- is a marriage and a relationship that really, really works!
Sonny: Jax -- is that right?
Carly: I love him.
Sonny: Right, you love him.
Carly: I love him, and, you know, we probably shouldn't talk about this anymore, because I'm going to marry him. Michael and Morgan, get down here! We need to go now!
Sonny: Carly? I'm asking you, please, don't leave.
Tracy: Daddy, you should sit. You've been there, you can tell him how to get through it.
Edward: I -- I can't.
Tracy: Yes, you can. He's your son, he needs you.
Edward: I -- I know you, boy. You are stronger than anyone gives you credit for. And I'm here to tell you -- oh -- can you see him, Lila? Can you see our Alan? He's so sick, and I don't know what to do for him. It's -- it's you that he always looks to for comfort and love -- always has. Like the time when he was a little boy and -- and he slammed his fingers in the -- in the door of the rolls and -- and he ran right past me and into your sitting room, and you hugged him and you kissed it and you -- you made it better. I was busy making sure that he hadn't damaged the car. Oh, God, I was an old fool even then. We need you, my dear, to make everything better -- somehow. Oh -- oh, God. Oh, Monica? Monica, he -- he squeezed -- he squeezed my hand. You go talk to him, tell him -- tell him that he can make it.
Emily: Could you page Jason Morgan to ICU, stat?
Nurse: We just did.
Emily: Yeah, well, you need to do it again. It's an emergency.
Nurse: He's not even on --
Emily: His father just had a heart attack. You page Jason Morgan, and then you page him again.
Spinelli: Um -- excuse me? Stone Cold -- uh -- Jason is not in the building.
Emily: You said that he had something to take care of?
Spinelli: Yeah, something important, but I'm sure --
Emily: Yeah, well, his father just had a heart attack, Spinelli -- that's important. He's not answering his cell. Do you know where to find him?
Spinelli: I -- yeah, I think so.
Emily: Okay -- well, you tell him he's got to come now. Tell Jason that his father needs him.
James: Nice shot, Mr. Morgan, but I'm far from being dead. The next hit could very well be you.
Jason: You're never going to make it to the terrace.
James: My ride is waiting, and I can assure you before I miss it, one of us is going to die.
Carly: You can't force me to stay with you.
Sonny: I just want a chance to be able to change your mind.
Carly: Sonny, if the last 24 hours hasn't changed my mind, then nothing will. We've come so far, you know, but there's so many possibilities ahead of us. Why can't you just look at me and tell me that you want me to be happy and you wish me well, because I want that for you. I do. We are always going to be a part of each other's lives. I -- I love you, I do love you. We're always going to respect each other. We're going to watch our kids grow up, and we can laugh and joke and argue over Thanksgiving dinner.
Sonny: Oh, so I have that to look forward to -- eating stuffed turkey with Jax? How can I tell the difference?
Carly: That's what I'm talking about. I'm sitting here telling you that you have my heart, and you're just going to take shots at Jax.
Sonny: Do you want me to admit that you're tearing my heart out?
Carly: I don't want to go back to where we were.
Sonny: I don't, either. I want you, I need you, and I want to make it safe for you to love me.
Carly: I don't want the pain that comes with trying to live with you day in and day out, Sonny. I don't want that.
Sonny: My pain comes from living without you.
Carly: Oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry for your pain, I'm sorry -- for everything. But you know you're going to get over me. You're going to be over me in a minute. Are you kidding me? And you're wonderful, and you're -- and you're romantic, and you have all these qualities that women fall over themselves to be with you. So you are going to find someone that makes you happy.
Sonny: And if I did, it's going to drive you crazy like it always does.
Michael: Sorry -- Morgan had to tie his own shoes.
Carly: Of course he did because he's such a big boy. Okay? You go say goodbye to your father.
Sonny: Hey, guys.
Carly: You go say goodbye to your father.
Sonny: I love you, buddy.
Carly: Give him a big hug, okay?
Michael: Love you, too.
Sonny: Come over here, little munchkin. Carly? I -- I really do wish you well, and I want you to be happy.
Luke: How you feeling?
Elizabeth: Don't tell me you're here to check on me?
Luke: Why not? You're my daughter-in-law. Any of you trapped in that lobby could've been killed.
Elizabeth: How's Alan doing?
Luke: It's -- um -- not looking so good right now. And I ran into Lucky. He tells me he's walking aw from you and the baby.
Elizabeth: He -- um -- doesn't want to pressure me.
Luke: What do you want, Elizabeth?
Monica: I'm supposed to bring you back. I'm supposed to fix you, Alan. After everything that have gone through, all the fights, I'm not supposed to fail you now. Maybe if we could fight together -- you with your incredible strength, me with my knowledge as a doctor -- that's kind of been our story, hasn't it? We fight, we pull apart, we get back together. And those times when I didn't think we could ever, ever be together -- there was way too much anger -- you would say something, or you'd touch me. No one has ever made me laugh the way you do. You know that, don't you? No one has ever made me feel more like a woman than you, even in the worst of times. When I had my mastectomy, and I didn't think anybody would ever want to touch me again, you did. We really have had one hell of a love affair, haven't we -- imperfect as it has been. Now here's the irony. When we would get in trouble, I would pull apart and I would just hurl myself into work because I wanted to be a better surgeon. So I sacrificed -- I sacrificed you and me. And where has it gotten me? Because right now -- right now, when it should count, when I should -- should get you back, I'm helpless.
Monica: Alan needs another doctor. I'm going to go get him one.
Edward: Well -- uh '
James: You're an excellent shot, Mr. Morgan, but you were too stubborn to leave when you had the chance. That means you get to die.
Spinelli: Oh -- oh, man! Uh -- Jason, you got to get out of here now!
Jason: Spinelli -- Spinelli, you got to get out of here.
Spinelli: No, no, no, you don't understand -- your dad just had another heart attack!
Jason: Get out of the building now, Spinelli.
James: You're not seriously going to waste more time with this pointless duel when your father's dying? You only get one father, Mr. Morgan.
James: Wise choice, Mr. Morgan.
Luke: Lucky got himself addicted to pills and he cheated on you -- that's all I know. But there's more, I'm sure. There always is more.
Elizabeth: I don't want him to hurt anymore.
Luke: You know, they say that love conquers all, but it doesn't. It can't. Love doesn't set you free, forgiveness does. When Laura found a way to forgive me -- truly, deeply forgive me -- it changed my life. That simple act of grace on her part made me a better man. Maybe if you find a way to forgive Lucky, he'll stop hating himself.
Monica: Would you page Dr. Russell for me? I need to see him now.
Edward: Monica, you're -- you're scaring me.
Monica: I'm getting another cardiologist for my husband.
Tracy: What's wrong?
Edward: Don't be ridiculous. Alan has a fine team. You in the lead -- there is no finer cardiologist, and you know that.
Monica: That's the biggest lie I've heard -- no, it's actually the second, if you count the one I've told you. Alan isn't going to be all right. He's not going to rally; he's not going to get up from that bed. He's dying.
Edward: You -- you can't say that.
Monica: And I had absolutely no business being anywhere near that procedure. I was exhausted, I was emotional, and I was scared to death. I forced the staff to let me lead that operation, when they should've excluded me, purely on the fact that I'm his wife.
Tracy: Do you think another surgeon could've done better?
Monica: I have no idea, Tracy. His heart is so badly damaged, we'll never know. It's just a miracle he's alive right now.
Edward: Now, don't say that.
Monica: Edward, I'm just trying to get you prepared.
Edward: I -- I won't listen to this.
Emily: Mom's trying to get you help. She's in a bad way. She's drowning in guilt. The only thing that's going to get her out of it is if you wake up. Can you do that, Dad? It's totally selfish, but I need you. You're the only father I've ever known. Everything I have, everything I am, is because of you. You've been my inspiration since I was 11 years old. You know that. I was scared and all alone and so sad, and you knew how to get through to me. You gave me Sidney the bear, you remember? Huh. You made me smile and you made me feel safe. And there hasn't been a day since, not a minute, where I didn't feel your love. Please, Dad, please don't take that away from me.
Emily: Oh, God -- Grandfather? Hi.
Edward: You know, Emily, I was -- I was thinking about going to the chapel just now, make a deal with God, maybe even say a prayer. Hmm. But God doesn't listen to me. He knows I've made a different kind of a deal that's due and payable, and I will be paying for that for the rest of my life, for what I've become. Oh, Emily, my dear. You should run as fast as you can, and get as far away from me while you still can, dear.
Edward: Oh, God. In my opinion, happiness is having... the people you love around you.
Lucky: Why aren't you at the hospital?
Elizabeth: Kelly said the baby and I are fine, so she sent me home.
Lucky: But you came here instead?
Elizabeth: I told myself that if you were here, then I still knew your heart like I used to.
Elizabeth: When you came to see me today, I saw a person that I haven't seen in a very long time -- the man that I have loved for most of my life. And when you walked out that door, it felt like you were giving up.
Lucky: What if I hadn't been here?
Elizabeth: Then I would've gone back to Gram's and figured out what to do next. But you are here, so now I can tell you. Please don't give up on your dreams -- or me.
Carly: Yeah, I'm going to sit down with you guys for a second. Wow, I just -- you know, I feel like I've been away forever.
Michael: Mom, you don't need to be scared anymore, because I'll protect you.
Carly: Oh, honey, you don't worry about protecting me. We're safe and we're home, and you know what? I always knew we would be.
Michael: Because of Dad.
Carly: Because of Dad and many other brave people who helped everyone out, but mainly because of you and Morgan. Because there's no way I could ever, ever leave you guys.
Carly: So, come here. I want hugs, hugs, hugs. Oh, thank you! Will you do me a favor? Will you go upstairs and unpack your stuff, and I will make you lunch. How's that?
Carly: I'll order pizza.
Michael: Okay, then.
Carly: Go on.
[Knock on door]
Michael: That was fast. Maybe it's Dad -- or not.
Michael: Thank you.
Carly: I don't believe this.
Michael: Here you go.
Carly: Thank you.
Carly: "I'm sorry for all of this, but you always have my heart." God, Sonny.
Tracy: How could you tell Daddy that Alan's going to die? How could you do that to an old man?
Monica: Because it's the truth, Tracy. He can't survive.
Tracy: Monica, you cannot give up on my brother.
Monica: You're in denial.
Tracy: Monica, you did not sabotage him in the OR. You are far too talented a surgeon to let exhaustion or nerves undermine your stellar career.
Monica: Did you forget? I was sued for malpractice.
Tracy: Monica, it -- it was 15 years ago, and it was thrown out of court. So don't go all remorseful on us now. Alan needs you!
Tracy: Where did you go, what did you do?
Edward: Oh, I've -- uh -- I've decided to follow Monica's advice and prepare for the inevitable -- and you should do the same.
[Knock on door]
Carly: Sonny -- Sonny, one night of sex does'
Officer: Our salvage crews found a bag of jewelry taken fm at the hotel. People are anxious to get their things back. It's your ring, your wife's wedding band, and her engagement ring, along with her passport.
Sonny: I guess this is the first thing to getting my life back to normal. I'll go ahead and I'll -- I'll bring these to my wife.
Elizabeth: Your father came to see me.
Lucky: If he twisted your arm, I'll kill him.
Elizabeth: No, relax, he didn't, okay? But it made me realize that -- well, we've handled this rather poorly.
Lucky: Elizabeth, please, I --
Elizabeth: No, Lucky, just let me get this out, okay? When my life was spinning out of control, I didn't know what to do, either. I went into denial, I made excuses. I was so deeply hurt I did everything I could to avoid confronting it, mostly because I knew that if I let myself feel what was going on, then I would know that I was going to lose you forever. When you came to see me today and you offered to let me go, I could see the boy who I've loved since I was 15 years old. And what I felt, beyond all the hurt and the fear, was my heart. I tried to find another way -- a life without you as my soul mate. But I don't want that life. I want us to learn from our mistakes. And I want us to trust each other. And I wanted you -- and ask for your forgiveness in return. And then I want us to get married -- if you still want me.
Tracy: Monica, you've spent your entire marriage to my brother fighting with him. Now it's your turn to fight for him.
Monica: He is my whole life, Tracy. I cannot hold out where there is no hope.
Tracy: If you can't do it for yourself, then do it for your children.
Edward: Leave her alone, Tracy. There's nothing to be gained by fighting amongst ourselves.
Tracy: Daddy, why is today any different?
Monica: I never really realized how much you like your brother.
Tracy: Monica, he is my brother, I have tortured him my whole life. I don't like him -- I love him.
Monica: Okay, then you believe, Tracy. Go ahead, you have earned that right. Oh, no. Oh, no -- no. Not yet.
Emily: I'm sorry, Mom.
Monica: Not yet.
Emily: He's gone.
Monica: Oh '
Jason: I'm sorry.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Carly: You're back.
Jax: You slept with Sonny?
Elizabeth: I love you.
Lucky: I will love Cameron and our baby with all my heart.
Jason: I didn't make it in time. When you needed me, I wasn't here.
