General Hospital Transcript Monday 3/5/07
PLEASE CLICK TO DONATE TO OUR SITE!!!!
Carly: Sonny, if you want to talk about my relationship with Jax, you should talk about it with me.
Sonny: That's fair enough.
Carly: Okay. Boys, can you go upstairs for a minute, please?
Sonny: I just -- I just got here. I want the -- I want the boys to stay.
Lulu: "Luke, if you have received this letter, it is because I am dead and I did not want the truth of who killed Rick Webber to die with me. The decision to keep this secret was difficult and painful, but necessary --"
Dillon: Oh, who cares about the reasons? Let's get -- who did it?
Lulu: I -- well, I don't know. There's just a long explanation. This --
Dillon: Well, what did --
Scott: Hey, uh, sorry to bother you guys. I -- I forgot something.
Dillon: Uh, do you -- do you always just, like, walk into people's houses?
Scott: I'm sorry, it's just that I -- I lost my P.D.A., I think, over here --
Dillon: I'll find it for you.
Scott: I was sitting over here. Funny -- what's this letter you got here?
Patrick: This is Patrick Drake. I'm ready for my HIV test results now. You're sure? Okay. Thanks for calling.
Patrick: I'm negative.
Robin: Oh --
Patrick: I'm okay.
Robin: Yeah -- thank God.
Elizabeth: You said you'd let Lucky raise this baby. Have you changed your mind? Are you going to tell him that you're the baby's father?
Carly: We need to discuss this like adults.
Sonny: Can we do it later? Because I just want to spend some time with my children. It's almost lunch, right?
Michael: I think so.
Sonny: Can I -- can I stay for lunch? Well --
Michael: Please. Please, Mom, please let Dad stay for lunch.
Carly: Dad needs to go to work. Right, Sonny?
Sonny: No, work can wait, because there's nothing more important than family, right?
Carly: You know what I think?
Carly: I think you're dodging.
Sonny: Dodging what?
Carly: Now you're being obtuse.
Sonny: Look, just lighten up a little bit. We're -- we're here, we're all together. We're a family, you know, enjoying each other. We're going to have fun and --
Sonny: You know --
Carly: You're right, it's a beautiful day.
Carly: Boys, get out your monster trucks. Dad is going to play in the sandbox with you.
Sonny: Well, that's -- that's actually a great idea. We get to have fun talk while we're playing.
Carly: "Fun talk"?
Carly: Okay, fine. You want to stay for lunch? You're more than welcome.
Jax: "Three"? Well, that's an interesting name.
Maxie: Uh -- it's a nickname, because he's the third -- Cooper Barrett III -- so his family calls him "Three."
Jax: So what do people at work call you?
Coop: Cooper, or Coop for short.
Jax: Okay. Do you have any security experience?
Coop: I did two years in Iraq with M.P.S.
Coop: That's about the best training you can get.
Jax: I like the idea of hiring a veteran.
Max: Working in a hotel is a whole different ballgame. You need to be discreet; you need to be polite to guests if they ask you any questions.
Coop: Tell me what to do and I'll do it.
Maxie: He'll be great at the job, I promise. Besides, he's cute, so he'd, like, brighten up the lobby.
Jax: Okay, besides your expert opinion, do you have any references?
Lulu: Thank you.
Scott: You know, I -- I know that law office. I used to deal with them when I was a lawyer here in town. They deal with estates and, you know, odd bequests and deathbed revelations -- things like that. Listen, if you want some free legal advice, let me take a look.
Lulu: Oh, no. That's okay.
Scott: You sure, because -- it's not bad news? You look a little upset.
Dillon: You know what it -- you know what it is? It's Alan's will. He left, uh, something for Luke, which is weird, but it's, you know, probably because he married my mom.
Lulu: It's -- it's probably sympathy money.
Scott: Oh, well, now, you said that, I didn't. You know, your mother is a bit of a -- well, you know, I -- no offense, okay?
Dillon: No, none taken, none taken.
Scott: All right, good.
Lulu: So, you got your P.D.A.
Scott: Yeah, I did. Okay, well, listen, I'll see you two around. You know what? I -- I still -- I can't figure out why your father married Tracy, other than the fact that he couldn't resist feeding at the Quartermaine trough. But to saddle you with a vampire for a stepmother seems a little --
Luke: Hey! That vampire you're talking about is my wife.
Robin: HIV negative?
Robin: What a relief.
Patrick: I feel like I'm finally coming off an emotional roller coaster.
Robin: Well, no kidding. I mean, you've been waiting to find out for months.
Robin: I'm so happy for you.
Patrick: This is -- it's just -- this is so weird.
Robin: What's weird?
Patrick: Just -- uh -- chance, the power of medicine. I mean, I operate on a woman with full-blown AIDS and I cut myself, and -- I mean, it's not a big cut, but there's a chance for infection. So I take my drug protocol, I do my tests, and I wait. And as I'm waiting, you get shot. The people that are trying to help you -- there's blood all over their hands. But because you're on the cocktail, because you're conscientious about taking your meds, your viral load is -- is minimal. It's basically undetectable. So now they're not at risk. Emily and Elizabeth and Carly have your blood all over their hands and arms and they don't have to worry --
Robin: Right, but I hope that they do get a test anyway just to be safe.
Patrick: Yeah. But I -- I get it now -- why you were so angry with me when I said I didn't want to retake my test, when I didn't want to find out if I was positive, for when I said I wanted to wait to start my meds. It's treatment that stops infection. Those people could try and save you without worry because you're responsible with your HIV, and I was an idiot for even thinking about putting off my test --
Robin: Time-out. This is your time to be happy, Patrick. This is over for you, you're healthy.
Robin: It's okay.
Patrick: Patrick Drake. Dr. Linda Ellsworth -- the healer and breaker of hearts. How are you? Yeah, it's been a long time. What can I do for the queen of cardiothoracic surgery? A consult now? You know what? I'm sorry. I don't think it's going to --
Robin: No, no, it's fine. It's fine, go.
Patrick: You know what? Scratch that -- yeah. Yeah, I'll meet you at the hospital. Yeah, just like old times. Okay. Bye.
Patrick: Well --
Robin: So, see you later?
Robin: Congratulations on your good news.
Patrick: Thank you. Thank you for all your support. You get some rest, okay? Just -- just stay off your feet.
Robin: Yes, I know, Doctor.
Robin: Thank you.
Patrick: Okay. Bye.
Jason: I'm just saying when -- when the baby's born, I -- I see the face of my own child. It's just going to be hard to keep -- keep it a secret.
Elizabeth: Yeah, but you can see him or her whenever you want -- I mean, just like how you do with Michael.
Jason: I know, but this is just different.
Elizabeth: Lucky's going to be a good dad. Not -- not better, because any child would be blessed to have you as a father. But Lucky is going to love and cherish this little person even more so because it gave him hope and it pulled him out of his addition. I mean, Jason, you should see him. He's just like the person he was before.
Jason: Look, I know, I know that this would be best for Lucky. I'm just -- I'm just trying to figure out what's best for this baby, that's all.
Elizabeth: I know. If you and I had planned to have a child, if we were in love -- but you're with Sam, I'm going to marry Lucky. This child is going to be raised with a family, and that is what I think is best.
Lucky: Jason, I -- we need to talk.
Lucky: We found evidence of a gun shootout in the Metro Court restaurant, and I need to ask you a few questions.
Epiphany: Nurse Webber? Mr. Katz in 610 needs his meds.
Elizabeth: Okay, I'll be right there.
Lucky: Sam told us that you went with her to the hospital after the explosion.
Jason: Yeah, that's right.
Lucky: But you didn't stay with her. There was a period of time that you were unaccounted for.
Jason: Should I call my lawyer?
Lucky: I know your father suffered another heart attack and your sister was also one of the hostages that night. I'm sure you spent time with both of them, right?
Jason: Yeah, I did.
Lucky: And there was more than 50 people in the restaurant that night. So if forensics finds your prints, that's hardly conclusive. So I'm recommending that we close this case as unsolved. Is there anything you want to add?
Lucky: Okay, you're free to go.
Lucky: Jason? I'm really sorry about your father.
Jason: Thank you.
Lucky: What you did for Elizabeth -- saving her from that explosion -- there's not a doubt in my mind that you saved my baby. I owe you for that.
Luke: I'm sure I told you to stay away from here.
Scott: Was it my imagination, or did Lesley stand right here and tell us that if Laura was around, she'd want us to get along?
Luke: Well, Lesley's entitled to her opinion. Stop sniffing after my daughter like some randy dog and get out.
Lulu: Dad, Mr. Baldwin forgot something and he just got it.
Luke: Yeah? Don't believe anything he says.
Scott: Oh, come on. What else would I be doing here?
Luke: Well, that's a good question. What is your agenda? I keep asking, you keep changing the subject. We all know you're here for some reason. Why don't you just try to tell the truth?
Scott: You know, you keep telling me that I'm some kind of a prisoner of the past, but it seems to me that you're the one that's jumped in the time machine and gone right back to the 1980s and you're still fighting me for Laura.
Luke: I won that battle -- get over it.
Scott: Yeah? Well, how come you go haywire every time I say hello to your daughter?
Luke: Because she's my only daughter and I'm going to move her off the tracks whenever a train wreck approaches.
Scott: Yeah, well, I'm no threat to your daughter or anybody else. So why don't you in your ridiculous, miserable, drunken life, Spencer, try -- just try and set an example for your kids? Huh? Good luck with him.
Luke: Spielberg, you, too.
Dillon: Yeah -- uh -- leaving. Ahem.
Luke: What is that?
Lulu: Uh -- oh -- uh, your -- you forgot your letter.
Dillon: That's '
Coop: Since I got out of the service, I've just been pretty much knocking around, living off my pay.
Jax: What did you do before that?
Coop: I was a short-order cook, and I flip a mean burger, but I don't think that's the kind of references you're looking for. But I do have my honorable discharge and sharpshooter's medal.
Jax: Okay. And how do you know Maxie?
Maxie: He's my friend Cheryl's brother.
Jax: Is that someone that lives here in Port Charles?
Maxie: No, no, no, Cheryl is my friend from prep school, and Coop used to visit her all the time. They're really close.
Coop: Maxie used to talk about Port Charles all the time. It sounded like a nice place to live. So -- I'd be good at security work, so here I am.
Jax: Okay. Well, I'll give you a try.
Coop: Thank you, Sir.
Jax: Since Maxie works in the boutique, you'll be seeing each other at work every day, so I suggest you keep your personal life at home.
Coop: Not a problem.
Maxie: Oh, don't worry. I know what can happen when you let your personal feelings interfere with your job.
Coop: I appreciate the opportunity, Mr. Jacks.
Jax: You bet.
Maxie: Okay, well --
Coop: I'll take the job seriously.
Jax: I'm sure you will.
Maxie: Thanks, Jax.
Maxie: He'll be great, I promise.
Jax: What, is something bothering you about that?
Max: You know, he seems like an okay kid. There's just something really familiar about him.
Sonny: We're having a great time right now.
Carly: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm.
Sonny: You want seconds, Carly?
Carly: No, thanks.
Sonny: No? All right, Mike, listen to me. No more fighting in school, not even with your buddies. I know that, you know -- look, you're doing great with your grades, with your sports -- that's what you should be concentrating on.
Michael: Got ya.
Carly: Dad's right -- no fighting. We should wrap this up because I have to get your hair cut today.
Michael: Yeah, but you said that's tomorrow.
Carly: Not tomorrow.
Sonny: You pick out a subject for your report?
Michael: Yeah -- Russia. Jax just got back from there. You remember those hats that I showed you?
Sonny: Yeah, yeah -- how could I forget?
Carly: Morgan learned a new song in school today.
Sonny: It's bad manners to talk with food in your mouth. So, what -- uh -- what kind of stories did Jax tell you kids?
Michael: Well, he was in Siberia --
Michael: A little place in the middle of nowhere.
Michael: He couldn't even get his satellite phone to work.
Sonny: Yeah, that's nice. I'm sure your mother was very excited to see him when --
Carly: I am done. You guys done?
Sonny: You're done? You haven't even eaten anything.
Carly: Yeah -- I don't like broccoli.
Sonny: But you got to eat your vegetables just to, you know, set an example for the kids and everything.
Carly: I'll try and remember that, thanks.
Sonny: I'm sure Jax loves broccoli.
Michael: He loves it. You're right.
Carly: You know what, boys? You know what? I think you guys need to go upstairs.
Michael: Okay. Come on.
Sonny: Oh, yeah, you guys go upstairs, because I think your mother's going to have a --
Michael: This way.
Carly: Or the TV room -- follow your brother. Go to the TV room and turn on the TV.
Sonny: Your mother's going to have a discussion with me about something. I could pretty much -- wait, wait, what?
Carly: This needs to stop now.
Carly: How could you use the boys like that?
Sonny: Michael's the one that mentioned Jax.
Carly: Because he's trying to score points with you.
Sonny: Well, you know what? He's going to be a part of you guys' lives and everything, his name's going to come up -- it's not a big deal.
Carly: We should be trying to prepare those little boys for the fact that we're not going to be together. Instead, you're quizzing them about Jax, acting all interested. You know they're just trying to please you.
Sonny: Well, you know what? You're way over-thinking this.
Carly: You are using them to spy on my relationship with Jax.
Sonny: What exactly is your relationship with Jax?
Carly: He knows. He knows that we're married; he knows that we slept together.
Sonny: And he's okay with that?
Luke: Let me see that.
Dillon: No, no -- it's mine.
Luke: What the hell is going on here?
Luke: You two are jumping out of your skins.
Dillon: No, I'm just -- you know, Alan -- it's -- it's hitting me harder than I thought.
Dillon's voice: "The person who killed Rick Webber was Scott Baldwin."
Luke: I told you if Baldwin came back here, to slam the door in his face.
Lulu: Look, Dad, I know you want me to believe that he's this horrible person who comes around and wants --
Luke: Lulu, I've known him for 30 years! You've known him for, like, 10 minutes. Listen to me. He's only working you to get at me.
Lulu: He asked if Mom had mentioned him when she came back. I said no, that's it. I really have nothing more to offer. So when you say Scott is working me, Dad, there is nothing to work.
Luke: He's following you around, he's coming here, and you're letting him in when I've repeatedly asked you not to!
Lulu: Dad, I can handle it.
Luke: I'm not asking again, Lulu, I'm telling you. Stay away from him!
Lainey: How you feeling?
Robin: The doctor says I'm healing up pretty well.
Robin: We got some great news today -- Patrick found out that he's HIV negative.
Lainey: He did? Oh, that's so great.
Lainey: Oh -- where is he?
Robin: He just left.
Lainey: To shop for the celebration?
Robin: Huh. Uh -- actually, one of his old colleagues called him, asked him to consult on a case -- Dr. Linda Ellsworth? I don't -- do you know who that is?
Lainey: No. Why do you ask?
Robin: Oh, I'm just curious.
Lainey: About the case that they're handling?
Robin: Of course. What else would I be curious about?
Lainey: I could guess, or you could just tell me.
Robin: Fine. Am I really that obvious?
Lainey: Yes. What did Patrick do?
Robin: Well, you know how he used to be, how he would flirt with anything in a skirt.
Lainey: That was before the two of you got serious.
Robin: Right, but that was because he thought he might be HIV positive. We shared this thing that no one else understood, and he opened up to me in a way that he's never opened up to another woman because he was vulnerable.
Lainey: It wasn't just that, but go on, I'm listening.
Robin: Well, now that Patrick knows that he's negative, his options are suddenly open again. I mean, we're not married, and he is a free agent. After all, that man loves women.
Jason: Okay, I want you to put a bug in Alcazar's hospital room. We need to know if he's faking the gaps in his memory.
Stan: Go ahead and get your man Spinelli. You know, you've been working with him lately.
Jason: That's because you were out of town, Stan, updating the casino computer system.
Stan: You knew you were taking a serious risk, right? That kid got a look at some sensitive documents.
Jason: He's completely trustworthy.
Stan: Spinelli spends most of his time playing video games -- cyber opium designed to placate the masses, okay, and he's addicted, under the control of corporate America, a little pawn of the establishment without even knowing it. We're talking lies, corruption -- basically, a system that needs to be overturned if there's even a shred of hope for the future of this country.
Jason: Right now I just need you to bug Alcazar's room, okay?
Stan: The lone voice in the wilderness.
Elizabeth: How'd everything go with Jason?
Lucky: You know, standard questions that he didn't answer -- and the case is closed.
Elizabeth: So that's it?
Lucky: Well, I have to go interview Father Ruiz. But how about I take my beautiful bride-to-be and our unborn child out to dinner when I'm done?
Elizabeth: Oh -- sorry.
Lucky: No worries.
Elizabeth: Just a minute. Hello?
Jason: I need to talk to you. Can you -- can you meet me at Sonny's office?
Elizabeth: Yeah. Um -- yeah, I'll be right there. That was Gram. She needs me to pick up a prescription for her. Can I meet you back here?
Lucky: Yeah. Great.
Carly: Don't -- don't insult Jax.
Sonny: No. I'm just saying that, you know, if Jax can just shrug it o like it's no big deal when his woman sleeps with another man and then marries -- you're right, because I --
Carly: He's just secure enough to be able to deal with what went on, Sonny.
Sonny: Really? Did you mention to him that you told me that you -- you love me and always will?
Carly: Don't -- don't. You know what? Because we're not going to have that conversation over. We're not going to do this, okay? You know that I want a divorce.
Sonny: No, you don't know what you want. That's -- you're trying to convince yourself it's Jax, but you know it's not.
Carly: No, I don't want to hear this from you right now.
Sonny: Truth hurts, doesn't it?
Carly: No, no, it's not the truth. That's not the truth. Whether or not Jax and I work out, we are getting a divorce, you and I.
Sonny: What does "whether or not" mean?
Carly: Nothing. Nothing. We're just having a dialogue, that's all, about what happened.
Sonny: Jax -- uh -- broke up with you?
Carly: No, he did not break up with me.
Sonny: Well, what's the problem, then?
Carly: There's no problem.
Carly: There's no problem, okay? He's just trying to understand what happened. He was angry, he was hurt, and he feels like he may not be able to trust me ever again, so thank you. Thank you for making a mess out of the best relationship I ever had in my life, okay?
Sonny: So you and Jax are over.
Carly: No, we're not over, okay? We're not over, we're just adjusting. We're trying to figure things out, you know, peaks and valleys -- just like every other couple has.
Sonny: So while you're figuring that out, that would mean that you wouldn't have to divorce me, now, would you?
Lainey: Patrick Drake is crazy about you. I'm a shrink -- I know.
Robin: But his life could change now that he knows he's HIV negative.
Lainey: Patrick's life changed the moment he found out you'd been shot.
Robin: Ugh -- I know, I know.
Lainey: So an HIV-negative test isn't going to change him.
Robin: It could. It could make him revert to his true self, which is the man who does not like to be tied down.
Lainey: Do you think his love for you was just an act?
Robin: We're like a wartime romance -- you know, we were caught in this life-and-death situation. Obviously, he's happy that I made it out of the hostage ordeal.
Lainey: That lasted 24 hours. Patrick's been telling you that he loves you for months.
Robin: But he became a one-woman man because he thought he might be HIV positive. Now that he knows he's negative, then we're just going to go back to being, you know, just -- just a couple.
Robin: So I'm annoying! And he loves his freedom.
Lainey: Robin, you are looking for trouble where none exists.
Maxie: Uh -- don't let me interrupt.
Lainey: No, I'm -- I'm leaving anyway. My prediction for the week -- you and Patrick will be tighter than ever.
Robin: Thank you.
Robin: So, how was work today at the boutique?
Robin: Yeah? Well, your boss called and said that you didn't want to stick around to go over the inventory.
Maxie: Oh. Well, we do it, like, twice a week, so I didn't think it was that big of a deal.
Robin: Hmm. I know what's going on here.
Maxie: You do?
Robin: Yeah -- the furtive looks, blowing off work, noises coming from your bedroom. You have a boy hiding in there, don't you?
[Knock on door]
Elizabeth: Thank you for not telling Lucky about the baby.
Jason: You and Lucky are getting married again. Um -- I know that he's attached to Cameron, and if Lucky thinks he's the father, the four of you will be a family.
Elizabeth: Being a father means everything to him.
Jason: If the truth comes out that the baby's mine, lives will be ripped apart. That's what I keep coming back to. Because I truly do want what's best for this baby. And you're the mother, and I trust your opinion. This is what you want?
Elizabeth: I honestly believe that it's best for everyone -- except you.
Elizabeth: I know I'm being unfair.
Jason: There is no perfect solution.
Elizabeth: But you just lost your father, and here I am asking you to give up being a father to this child.
Jason: You gave me your reasons. You did. I -- I thought it out, and, you know, I -- I made my decision.
Elizabeth: But it's costing you so much. Jason, you can -- you can know this child. I mean, whenever the baby's born, we can meet at the park, we can go for walks; you two can be close --
Jason: Look, if -- if I spend too much time with the baby, Lucky is going to sense that -- you know, that something's off. He's going to see it in my face or -- or in the way that I -- that I hold the baby, you know?
Elizabeth: Okay. Jason, however you want to do this, I'm willing to --
Jason: I love -- I love this baby already. You know, and -- and that love is only going to grow stronger if I'm a part of his or her life, and I don't want to start wishing for what could be, you know? I -- this is hard enough as -- as it is.
Elizabeth: What are you saying?
Jason: I'm saying that I can't cut myself off completely, but I'm -- I'm going to try to keep my distance.
Jason: And I can't say "our baby" anymore. Um -- it's yours and -- and Lucky's.
Elizabeth: Okay. I'm really sorry.
Jason: It's all right. It's okay.
Luke: Lulu, I'm sorry. I apologize for having that temporary lapse of sanity and thinking that because I'm your father, you're actually going to listen to me and take my advice. Clearly, you're not going to do that, which is your prerogative. You're just going to have to find out about Scott Baldwin's lies and his treacherous poison all on your own. But, hey, you know, that's the way I've written my life -- school of hard knocks -- and you're very much like me, so I guess that's the way it's going to be. But I apologize for flying off the handle like that and -- well, when things go wrong -- and I'm sure they will, because he's going to try to hurt you just to get at me -- then -- well, I'll do what I can if you come to me. Okay? Lulu, okay?
Lulu: Oh. Did you say something, Dad?
Maxie: You think I have a guy upstairs in my room when Mac could be home any minute? What, do you think I'm crazy?
Robin: Come on, you can tell me. I'm not going to spill to Uncle Mac, I promise.
Maxie: Okay, you know what? You and your shrink roommate were just talking about your boyfriend, so maybe you have guys on the brain, but there is no one in my room. I have sworn off men.
Robin: That's good. That is a good choice. That's how I was when I was living in Paris. I was living alone, I was independent, I was happy -- well, relatively happy. I guess I wasn't miserable.
Maxie: You know, I'm going to -- I'm going to go upstairs now.
Robin: "Love" is a four-letter word. I mean, just when you think everything is going so right, something could go wrong. It's like -- okay, then there's the whole Mars-Venus thing where you're communicating on two totally different planets -- like when he says he likes the couch, you don't know if he actually does like the couch, or if he's just trying to avoid the issue, which is you two living together. And then you wonder if he's happy, then you wonder if you're happy, then if you're wondering, then you're not really happy. You know what I --
Maxie: You were saying?
Robin: To be continued.
Maxie: Right. Hi.
Patrick: Hi. Hi.
Patrick: I was on the way home from the hospital and I saw these, so I got them for you.
Robin: They're beautiful, thank you.
Patrick: You're welcome.
Robin: Mmm. So how was your consult?
Patrick: It was great. Dr. Ellsworth is a wonderful woman.
Robin: Why didn't you take her out to dinner?
Patrick: Uh -- she had a date with her grandchildren.
Robin: Her grandchildren?
Patrick: Yeah -- she's 64. She taught one of the classes I was in at med school and we stayed in contact, we flirt back and forth. And by the way, we wouldn't have gone for dinner anyhow. I told her all about you, and she said to "rush home to the woman that you love."
Robin: Oh. Really?
Coop: You told them my name was "Three."
Maxie: I'm sorry, but it just came out, and no one suspected anything.
Coop: Oh, yeah -- Max, the head of security? He was one of the hostages. He knows that we all had numbers, and that Three was locked in the vault with you.
Maxie: Yeah, but I covered fine.
Coop: Oh, yeah -- until they pull up my service record and find my name is Cooper Barrett -- no "The Third."
Maxie: If they check, which they probably won't. You just say "Three" is like a family nickname or something. You know, you had a bunch of cousins that were also named Cooper, so your grandparents called you "Three" and then it kind of stuck.
Coop: How do you come up with this stuff?
Maxie: I'm really good at thinking on my feet. Besides, if you leave now after Jax already gave you the job, then max will definitely get suspicious. The only way to get away with this is just to let it play out.
Coop: I don't know.
Maxie: I'm trying to help you, okay? Could you just trust me, please?
Sonny: Hey, Max.
Sonny: When -- when are you going to come back and work for me?
Max: Um -- I'm already at work.
Sonny: You don't want to work in a hotel where, you know, you got to be nice to the guests. They treat you like a slave. Come on.
Max: I want to come back. You know, I just -- I feel like Mrs. C needs me right now.
Carly: I can't do it anymore.
Jax: Do what?
Carly: All of it -- it's complicated. I -- I'm fending off pressure from Sonny; I am trying to get you to trust me. Look, if Sonny pushes your buttons, you think I want him. If you want to know where I am tonight, I'm going to be in the Dominican Republic getting a divorce.
Jax: Well, that's good. That's a step in the right direction.
Carly: Yes, yes, it is. It's a step in the right direction for me.
Jax: But if you're mad at Sonny, please don't take it out on me.
Carly: That's not what this is about. And me getting a divorce isn't about being free to be with you, it's about me being free, period. I just thought you'd like to know.
Sonny: Trouble in paradise?
Lulu: Dad, that was great. Really, you should've seen your face.
Luke: You didn't hear a word I said.
Lulu: Well, the music was cranked up pretty loud.
Luke: Well, here's an idea -- pull the plugs out of your ears!
Lulu: Okay, Dad, I did -- I heard what you said. I did, and thank you for the apology. And I believe you when you say Scott is a snake, but I am -- you know, if he approaches me, I'm not going to go run and scream in another direction.
Luke: Okay, fair enough. Just be careful.
Lulu: I will. Was he always this bad, even when he was married to Mom?
Luke: Well, I don't know -- yeah. No -- well, I -- I don't really know. They married too young. You know, your mother was so full of life and excitement and possibility, and that threatened him. He tried to stifle her, and then I blew them apart. And he's always been bitter and angry about that, and I guess you can't really blame him. But as time went on, he turned into a poisonous loser. I mean, if he wants to take it out on me, fine, bring it on. But I just hate the thought that he's willing to use you -- or anyone else in the family -- to get to me.
Lulu: This is the first time you've talked about Scott like he's a human.
Luke: "Human" is stretching it.
Lulu: Oh -- seriously, Dad, why do you hate him so much?
Luke: We hated each other from the first moment we met, really. But more recently, I guess it's because he thinks that I'm responsible for Laura's illness -- and maybe he's right.
Maxie: This is all I've got for you.
Coop: I will pay you back. I swear.
Maxie: Hey, don't worry -- I know where you work.
Coop: I'm going to get a copy of my records and take them down to the Metro Court and finish up the employment stuff. And then I'm going to find a place to stay.
Maxie: Oh, you know what? You should try Kelly's. The rooms are cheap and clean, and I'm there a lot.
Coop: I'll see if they have any vacancies. Thanks again. You've been great.
Maxie: Well, you were actually pretty good company in that vault. If I had been stuck in there by myself, I might've gone a little crazy.
Coop: Yeah, I know what you mean.
Maxie: So, good luck.
Coop: See you later.
Carly: Oh, Jason, thank God you're here. I've just -- I've had it. I've had it with both of them. Jax is being difficult because of everything that happened with Sonny, and Sonny is just being completely impossible, so I have to go to the Dominican Republic and get a divorce and you have to come with me.
Jason: I -- I can't right now, Carly.
Carly: What do you mean, "You can't right now"? You promised you'd go with me. You can't bail on me.
Jason: I know I promised. Alan's memorial is tomorrow.
Jax: You know, I hate the fact that you slept with Carly, but I have no intention of losing her over a one-night stand.
Sonny: Well, the problem that you have right now is that Carly's still married to me.
Jax: No, she's getting a divorce as fast as possible.
Sonny: But she's going to come back to me because we have this special connection. We -- we had it long before you came alone, and we're going to have it long after you're gone.
Jax: You don't control her anymore, Sonny.
Sonny: No, it's not about control, not -- not about control at all.
Jax: You've lost Carly, and you're scared because you have no idea how to get her back. Carly's going to follow her heart.
Sonny: Yeah, she is -- right back to me.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Sonny: I'm sure Michael needs both of his parents right now.
Lucky: As soon as Nikolas gets here, we can go.
Lulu: What about Elizabeth? Isn't she coming with us?
Elizabeth: I thought maybe you could use a friend.
Ned: We've all come together to honor and find a way to say goodbye to Alan Quartermaine.
