[Knock on door]
Carly: Sonny -- Sonny, one night of sex does-- oh, you're back! Jax.
Jax: Wait -- wait a minute. Wait -- you slept with Sonny?
Emily: It s peaceful, Mom. I was holding his hand, and his heart just stopped. I'm so sorry I couldn't get to you in time.
Monica: It's okay. I'm just glad that you were there.
Edward: Well, Alan shouldn't be alone.
Emily: Jason's with him.
Monica: Oh, I'm so glad he made it in time.
Russell: Sorry, no one's allowed in here but family.
Jason: Alan's -- I'm -- I'm his son.
Carly: Please -- please don't jump to conclusions.
Jax: Where's the jump? You either slept with him or you didn't.
Carly: Okay, I did.
Carly: I did, I did because I was so emotional, Jax, from being taken hostage.
Carly: Okay, you obviously haven't turned on the news or drove past the Metro Court on the way over here.
Carly: This is going to sound crazy, and it's going to sound insane, okay? But masked gunmen took everyone hostage in the lobby. They were after some briefcase that Lorenzo had in the vault and before they could get the briefcase out, Sam hit the silent alarm --
Jax: Right, which closes the vault for --
Carly: 12 hours.
Jax: 12 hours.
Carly: 12 hours. And it also notifies the police. So the police set up barricades while these masked gunmen taped Plastique to the walls of the Metro Court, and we sat there waiting for 12 hours.
Jax: Plastique -- taped to the walls of the Metro Court?
Carly: Not anymore.
Jax: So, what, it exploded?
Carly: With me and hell of a lot of other people inside.
Jax: Wow. Then you're all right?
Carly: I'm fine. Robin was shot in the first hour.
Jax: Robin was shot?
Carly: Yes, she was shot.
Jax: Is she okay?
Carly: We had to cut her open with a paring knife and sew her back together with fishing line, Jax.
Jax: Wow. Really?
Carly: It was terrifying, and it was awful, and I sat in that hotel hour after hour with a gun to my head, wondering how you could be gone so long if you really loved me.
Jax: Hmm. And then -- and then you slept with Sonny?
Emily: Jason didn't get here until after Dad died.
Monica: Oh --
Edward: Oh, God.
Monica: He was there. He came to see Alan, and I sent him away to get his injuries tended to. I didn't want Alan to wake up and see him all bloodied like that.
Edward: You had no way of knowing that he wasn't going to be back in time.
Monica: No, I knew -- I knew Alan was weak, and I knew how much he wanted to see Jason.
Edward: No, I am to blame. I am to blame. I was a poor father, and I set such a terrible example that -- that Alan never even knew how to parent.
Emily: He knew how much you loved him.
Edward: Look, I had so many expectations that Alan couldn't meet, and he turned around and he treated A.J. and Jason the same way. And after the accident, Alan made it very clear that he could not accept the kind of man that Jason had become.
Emily: Grandfather! We can't do this, okay? He's gone. He would want us to help each other.
Nikolas: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.
Russell: Your father suffered several massive coronaries while being held hostage. We performed an angioplasty, but the damage to his heart was too severe.
Jason: Was he in pain?
Russell: Well, not in the end. Dr. Quartermaine was unconscious when he suffered the final heart attack.
Jason: Uh -- when -- when did it happen? I mean, what -- what time?
Russell: A little before noon.
Jason: Okay. Thank you.
Russell: Well, if you'd like a few moments --
Jason: I was coming back to see you.
Jason: It's what you wanted. All along, you wanted me to come back to you. I -- I didn't make it in time.
Lucky: You and Cameron and -- and this baby mean everything to me.
Elizabeth: We have a chance to try it again.
Lucky: I know I've told you so many times, but I'm truly sorry for hurting you and destroying our marriage.
Elizabeth: I forgive you, Lucky. I really do. And I love you.
Jason: I went to kill the man who held you hostage. I thought it was important. Somebody who did what he did shouldn't be able to walk. But I could tell he's been shot at before because he didn't panic. He kept asking me why I was wasting my time coming after him, what I thought I'd accomplish. Couldn't I just let this go, wasn't there someplace better for me to be, and I didn't listen. Why should I -- I wanted to kill him. Then Spinelli --
Jason: Said that you had another heart attack. And I realized the guy that I had gone to kill was right. I was wasting time. So I let him go. The last thing he said was, "We only get one father." Sounds simple. Maybe it is. We only get one father, and you were mine. And when you needed me --
Jason: I wasn't here.
Lucky: Elizabeth, if you are doing this because you feel sorry for me, don't.
Elizabeth: No, I would never marry you out of pity.
Lucky: I don't want you living in fear that I might relapse at any moment, because I won't. I made a promise to my mother. I made a promise that I'd stay clean for her, for you, and most of all for me, and I meant it.
Elizabeth: Okay. I believe you.
Lucky: So what made you say yes -- not that I'm arguing. Don't tell me my dad gave you the lecture about doing the right thing?
Elizabeth: Oh, please. Could you picture that? But he did tell me something I already knew -- that forgiveness has the power to change everything.
Lucky: Well, remind me to thank him.
Elizabeth: I started thinking about the Lucky who helped me through the worst time in my life, the boy who was so strong, compassionate, and kind. Trusting you made me trust myself, made me want to love again.
Elizabeth: No matter what has happened in the past, you're still that same person. And that is why --
Singer: Hold me
Elizabeth: I want to marry you
Singer: In your heart
Lucky: I promise to give you the best of me. And I promise that I will love Cameron and our baby with all my heart.
Singer: You and me
Lucky: You can -- you can trust me.
Singer: You know I'd cross the stars
Lucky: You can depend on me for the rest of our lives.
Singer: Would go that far
Lucky: I love you.
Singer: There's nowhere else I'd rather be
Elizabeth: I love you, too.
Lucky: Then let's get married.
Carly: I spent all night expecting to be tortured, or shot at any moment. Yes, it's true, I slept with Sonny.
Jax: You were engaged to me.
Carly: You were gone for two months, Jax!
Jax: Oh, you knew that I was coming back!
Carly: I didn't know you were coming back!
Jax: You didn't?
Carly: Three emails, three voicemails, and one text message.
Jax: You know, I missed you every minute of the day. I -- I couldn't wait to come home to you.
Carly: You have an interesting way of showing that to me.
Jax: Yeah, and you just -- you just decided, "Why wait," right, and you got back together with Sonny?
Carly: I didn't get back together with Sonny. It was a one-time thing, that is all.
Jax: Nothing is ever a "one-time thing" with you and Sonny!
Carly: I don't want to be with Sonny, okay? He wanted me to stay, I didn't want to stay, so I brought my boys back to this house. And if you were listening when I opened the door, I said I wasn't going back.
Jax: Oh, I'm sorry. I was distracted by your announcement that you had sex with him.
Carly: I'm sorry.
Jax: You know, that's kind of a big deal to me. I don't know if it's a big deal for you.
Carly: I'm sorry! I was so happy when I saw you. I've just been waiting for you every day to come home. What took you so long?
Jax: I notice you took off your engagement ring.
Carly: The -- um -- gunmen took everyone's jewelry, and don't change the subject. Where were you?
Jax: I was trying to save Jerry.
Carly: For two solid months --
Jax: Yes, I was. I was in Siberia, okay? He got in trouble with the Russian mafia. So I was over in Siberia getting -- getting shot at over drilling rights. I didn't sleep with anyone. Emotional duress is not an excuse for infidelity.
Carly: It's not -- it's not infidelity when it's your husband.
Jax: You married Sonny? You married him?
Jax: So you married Sonny? Oh, this is perfect.
Carly: I didn't want to marry Sonny, Jax.
Jax: Oh, but you just -- you couldn't resist? Is that -- is that it? How long did you hold out -- a week, a day? Had my plane even left the ground?
Carly: A wife can't be compelled to testify against her husband.
Jax: Oh, you know what? I don't want to hear this.
Carly: No, listen to me, Alcazar tried to kill Sonny. And I walked in when Sonny shot Alcazar in self-defense, but the only part I saw was Sonny pull the trigger. My testimony would've sent Sonny to prison.
Carly: Where are you going? Please don't leave.
Jax: I told you this from the start -- I will not be the man that fills the gap between your last time with Sonny and your next.
Carly: I couldn't let the father of my children go to prison! Sonny was innocent!
Jax: Oh, come on, Sonny's never innocent! He told me point-blank that he wanted you back.
Carly: He didn't shoot Alcazar in the head just to get me to marry him, Jax, he didn't do that.
Jax: Oh, well, if it wouldn't have been that, it would've been something else, okay? He tried every trick in the book to pull you away from me.
Carly: Please don't go. Please don't --
Jax: Remember when your -- your house flooded, right, and Sonny delayed the contractor so you'd -- you'd stay at his house longer? And then when Alexis was in the hospital, he took Molly and Kristina, and convinced you to stay with Michael and Morgan so you would stay at his house longer. Okay, he -- he tried everything to try to get you back.
Carly: I know, but my eyes were wide open. I saw what was going on.
Jax: You still married him.
Carly: I'm not living with him.
Jax: You slept with him. Why is that if it was just a marriage of convenience?
Michael: Jax, you're back! Where did you go?
Jax: Hey. Hey, buddy.
Michael: Oh, I missed you! I missed you.
Monica: I got a chance to say all the things I needed to Alan. And, actually, I think we felt closer to each other than we had in years.
Emily: Mom --
Monica: I just want to remember that moment, Emily, when I told him I loved him, and he told me he loved me.
Edward: I -- I need to say goodbye to my son.
Dillon: Mom -- is Alan -- I'm sorry.
Jason: I -- I'm going to be a father. Huh. Elizabeth is -- is pregnant with my child, and she -- she told me while we were trapped in the elevator. You know, I put my hand on -- huh -- on her stomach, and I felt my baby kick. I love my child. And even seen it. I don't know if it's a boy or if it's a girl, but I would give my life for my baby. Now I realize that's how you felt whenever you saw me. When I walked out, when I changed my name, when you tried to protect me, I said, "I hated you." I mean, all those things you tried to talk to me about and make me understand, and I'd look at you and I'd feel like I -- I couldn't give -- give you what you wanted. You just wanted me to love you. You wanted me to be happy. That's all you were trying to say to me.
Jason: I'm sorry I didn't understand. I'm sorry I -- I didn't hear you until now, and it's -- it's too late. I know that you love me. I know that now. I'm sorry.
Morgan: Did you miss us, Jax?
Jax: I sure did, Morgan -- and Michael and your mom. I missed you all very much.
Michael: Did you save your brother?
Jax: I did. It took a little longer than I expected, but --
Michael: Jerry sure gets in trouble a lot.
Jax: Yes, he does. I hope this is the last time I have to rescue him.
Michael: Why didn't you call more?
Jax: Well --
Carly: Jax was -- um -- in a part of Russia that's very remote -- Siberia.
Jax: Yeah. Satellite phones didn't really work there, so -- but that doesn't mean I didn't think of you, and what kind of presents to buy you guys.
Jax: That's right -- back seat of the car.
Michael: Okay, yeah -- me and him will be right back.
Michael: Mom only married Dad because he was in trouble. Does that mean you don't want to be our friend anymore?
Nikolas: Listen, if there's anything I can do for you or your family --
Monica: Oh -- Nikolas, I'm just glad that you are back in Emily's life. It's -- uh -- going to be a difficult time, and I'm -- I'm glad you're here for her support.
Emily: Mom, you don't have to take care of everyone else.
Monica: Well, it helps a little, you know? I'm going to miss your father. But right now, there are things that just have to be dealt with.
Emily: Well, at least let me handle the paperwork.
Monica: Oh '
Alice: Oh, I'm so sorry. Mr. Alan was a good man.
Monica: Yes. Yes, Alice, he was.
Tracy: Alan and I used to play tricks on each other. We picked on every flaw, every weakness. But he always watched my back when it came to Daddy and everybody else, and I always watched his. When I was little, my nanny used to put my hair in pigtails. Huh. Alan used to tell me I looked like a poodle.
Tracy: I, in turn, told him he looked like a monkey and that he smelled like one, too.
Dillon: That's good. That's a good -- that's a good comeback.
Tracy: And one day at school, he overheard a little boy in my class teasing me about my pigtails, so he grabbed him and soaked him in the water fountain until he apologized.
Dillon: You guys really loved each other.
Tracy: We never talked about it, we never used that word. But we knew that when the chips were down, we had each other. It made me feel safe to have Alan there, my big brother -- the one person who knew what it was like to grow up in this family. I'm scared to live without him.
Skye: Alan's gone?
Jason: He died a few minutes ago.
Skye: Were you with him?
Jason: No, Emily was.
Skye: That's -- that's fitting, I suppose. The daughter he raised should be with him, not some random stranger who just showed up on his doorstep one day claiming to be his daughter -- and wasn't. You know, your family thinks he should never have adopted me. Maybe he shouldn't have. I let him go into that Metro Court, knowing there was a dangerous shipment in there. And I kept silent after they were all taken hostage, too.
Jason: Did you know Craig would seize the lobby?
Jason: Did you want Alan to die?
Skye: Of course not.
Jason: Then you're not to blame.
Skye: I just -- I just wish I'd realized, you know? I would've done everything so differently.
Jason: Me, too.
Edward: Your father would be glad you're here.
Jason: I was too late.
Edward: Oh, Jason, son, Alan wasn't going to tell you anything that you didn't already know. He loved you deeply. He wanted you to live his dreams. And by the time he realized that you had become your own man, the distance was too great to cross.
Edward: You know, it's ironic that -- that I struggled with Alan as much as he struggled with you.
Edward: I hope if -- if you're ever a parent, that -- that you'll learn from our mistakes. Let your child be who they want to be. And don't assume that they know how much you love them. You tell them that as often as you can. You'll run out of time sooner or later.
Carly: Why don't you guys go upstairs and put your hats in your closet.
Michael: You want us to go away, don't you?
Carly: Yeah, just for a little while. And, Michael -- no listening at the top of the stairs, please.
Michael: Okay. Come on.
Jax: All right, see you guys later.
Morgan: I'm bringing him.
Jax: Okay. Bye-bye. You'll grow into that hat.
Carly: Thank you. Michael and Morgan really missed you.
Jax: Yeah. You know I hate the fact that you slept with Sonny. But I also know that he has a talent for manipulating situations to his advantage, which was probably the case with the hostage ordeal.
Carly: I don't want Sonny, Jax.
Jax: Yeah, but you still married him, which doesn't really leave a lot of room in your life for me, even if I wanted to be there.
Carly: Do you want to be there?
Jax: I don't know. Oh, and the -- uh -- the flowers -- they were from me, not -- not Sonny.
Lulu: Whee! You are getting married again! I am so happy for you!
Lucky: Thanks, Dad. Thank you.
Lulu: So when -- when is the ceremony?
Elizabeth: Oh, well, we haven't gotten that far.
Lulu: What? What? Well, why not tomorrow? Why wait? I mean, it's not like you guys need to get to know each other any better or anything.
Lucky: I owe you, Dad.
Luke: What for?
Lucky: Well, you know, talking with Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: You really helped me.
Luke: Oh. Well, good. I'm glad. I'm happy for both of you, and I know that Laura would be, too.
Jason: How's Monica?
Emily: Uh -- she's calm. You know, and she's trying to take care of everything. She can't feel it yet; I don't think it's hit her.
Jason: I just want to thank you for sending Spinelli to find me. I'm sorry I didn't make it back in time.
Emily: Jase -- his heart failed. You couldn't have stopped it. You know, we thought he was getting better. He -- he was smiling -- he was even teasing Mom -- and then all of a sudden he just arrested. They brought him back, but he never regained consciousness. He wasn't scared. He wasn't in any pain. And he just slipped away -- it was very peaceful.
Jason: Thank you for -- for being with him.
Emily: He was the best dad to me. I -- I know he made a lot of mistakes with you and A.J., but he loved us, Jase. Maybe that's what we can take away from all of this -- how much our dad loved us.
Monica: I would -- I'd like a minute alone with my husband, please.
Monica: I'd almost convinced myself that if I didn't see you, you really wouldn't be gone. That it would just be some horrible mistake. And I would come in and find you waking up and demanding to go home and -- and that's not true. You are gone. And I have to say goodbye.
Monica: Oh -- goodbye, Alan. I love you. I love you with all my heart. I always have, and I always will.
Tracy: Can you stand another story?
Dillon: Yeah. Tell.
Tracy: Your Uncle Alan was the sailor in the family. Daddy was very proud of his skill. So I was determined to show him up. When I was about 16 years old, I took out Daddy's brand-new sailboat -- and promptly ran it aground. Daddy was furious when he found out. But Alan lied. He told him that he'd put me up to it.
Tracy: After we had both suffered our punishments, Alan borrowed that sailboat without Daddy's knowledge -- and he taught me how to sail.
Dillon: You know, you never talk about this stuff.
Tracy: I don't ever think about it.
Dillon: Why don't you take me sailing sometime? You can tell me a bunch of stories about you and Alan when you were kids.
Tracy: I never told my brother that I loved him, and time ran out. So, I don't think I'll make that mistake again. I'm telling you now. Don't. I love you with all my heart. You are a magnificent son.
Edward: Oh -- what are you doing here?
Skye: I just wanted you to know that I loved Alan very much. And that despite all the regrets and the terrible things you think you've done, you raised a compassioned, loving person. Alan was so wonderful to me. He took me in and adopted me, loved me unconditionally. He gave me so much. And I was at the hospital, and I was thinking what I could possibly give that man back, and I realized that he'd be worried about you. So I'm here -- for Alan. And maybe, if you'd let me, to help you.
Edward: Hmm. I was -- I was just remembering Alan as a little boy -- before we clashed over the plans I had made for him and the expectations that I'd burdened him with. No, children become adults, and we fight with them, and we both become mutually disappointed. We hurt them, and they hurt us. But -- but in our hearts, they're -- they're still our children. And -- and now my boy is gone.
Nikolas: Would you like to be left alone?
Emily: No. I -- I walked in here and -- and I saw the room was empty, and it almost felt like a dream, and that Dad was going to walk around that corner and ask me about school and -- and tell some corny joke and -- and I'd laugh. I'd feel safe and loved.
Nikolas: I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry.
Emily: He was still here, Nikolas.
Nikolas: It's okay.
Emily: I could still feel him.
Monica's voice: Oh, shut up, Alan.
Alan's voice: Oh, don't tell me to shut up in my own house.
Monica's voice: This is my house.
Alan's voice: I gave it to you when I was young and stupid.
Monica's voice: So much for being in love.
Monica: Um -- I'm fine. I'm fine, I'll -- I'll be all right.
Monica: Oh, Jason --
