Edward: Now, I am the first to sympathize with Laura's very unfortunate situation. She is a lovely young woman who should be living her life surrounded by friends and family. But it is unacceptable for you to throw your love for Laura in Tracy's face.
Tracy: Daddy, I'm touched. I'm touched by your belated concern, but it's -- it's misplaced. You see, Luke and I have come to understand each other and we accept each other's baggage and I actually genuinely appreciate the -- the deep emotion that lies beneath his -- feeble attempt at expressing terms of endearment.
Luke: And I hear nothing but fairy music of the nymphs whenever you screech my name from across the house.
Edward: And I cannot stand this foolishness. We have much bigger fish to fry today. I'm only asking that the two of you behave yourselves and show some respect when Alan's will is read.
Tracy: Of course.
Luke: We wouldn't do anything else.
Luke: So -- ha. Who's your daddy?
Tracy: "The rest of your love"? Do you stay up late at night thinking of ways to humiliate me?
Luke: Come on. I had to do something to throw the old dog off our scent. Give me a little credit for thinking on my feet.
Tracy: By using Laura? Isn't that sacrilegious?
Luke: Oh. I have work to do on Alan's will.
Tracy: Okay, well, wait -- wait, wait, wait. Just remember everything I said, make sure everybody gets the right thing, you know, like -- like you said?
Luke: Just take it easy, buttercup. You'll get what you deserve.
Logan: Where are you sitting -- right here?
Lulu: Yeah, right here.
Lulu: No, it's fine. You don't need to do that.
Logan: You know, hot coffee -- it boosts your circulation. If you got stitches healing in that leg, you might want to get it iced instead. You up for a sandwich? I'm starved.
Lulu: Yeah, don't let me stop you, and feel free to leave at any time since I don't recall asking you to sit with me.
Logan: Well, you were about to, just as soon as you thanked me for helping you.
Lulu: Really? Because I'm not going to do that.
Logan: Oh. Didn't your parents teach you any manners?
Lulu: Actually, they told me not to talk to strangers, and for the record, I don't need your help. I'm fine on my own.
Logan: Why are you trying so hard not to like me?
Jax: Can I help you?
Sonny: I'm looking for Carly. Is she in the office?
Jax: She's not here.
[Power saws whirr]
Jax: Perhaps I'm being too subtle, so why don't I spell it out for you so there's no room for misunderstanding? If Carly wants to see you, she can do it at your place, or hers. This is my hotel and I don't want you here.
Sonny: Oh, I -- I could accept that as long as you know that you can keep me out of your hotel, but you're not going to keep me away from my wife.
Carly: Do you think I'm being unfair flying to the Dominican Republic to get a divorce?
Jason: I -- I thought you wanted this.
Carly: I do want this, I do, but Sonny has rights. I mean, if Jax and I wind up getting married, Sonny's going to be on the outside --
Carly: And not just with me, but with the boys. Everything's going to flip. Jax is going to be the primary male figure in the household simply because we're all living under the same roof. What do I do?
Jason: You're giving me a headache.
Carly: Oh, come on, Jason. I'm serious. If you were Sonny, what would you do?
Jason: Come on, Carly. I can't -- I can't speak for Sonny.
Carly: Okay, well, then speak for yourself.
Jason: It would be hard for me to know that another man was raising my kid.
Jason: You know, but if I thought it was the best solution or if it's what the mother wanted, it -- all that matters is what you want, Carly, so what is that exactly? Do you want Jax or do you want Sonny?
Sam: But I knew that there was an access to the ledge on the second floor and I was just trying to help --
Sam: Um, well, I -- I work in the hotel and I knew that there was an access to the ledge on the second floor and I --
Man: She's here.
Woman: I'm on my way.
Man: Miss Joffe will be right down. Can I get you something while you're waiting?
Sam: No, thank you. I'm fine. Okay -- really, I think I'm a little bit nervous.
Man: Well, that's normal. Most people are.
Sam: I just really -- I can't imagine what I could say that would interest a national audience.
Woman: That's what makes you the kind of guest this show is all about. I'm Amelia. I am the producer. I'll be conducting the interview.
Sam: Hi, Sam McCall. Very nice to meet you.
Amelia: Thank you for making the trip from Port Charles.
Sam: Yes. My pleasure.
Amelia: You have no idea how excited I was when you accepted our invitation.
Sam: Well, I am flattered. I just don't know if what I have to say is old news or not and, okay, I guess I'll be honest -- I don't think I'm really that comfortable in front of a camera.
Amelia: Well, I have to challenge you on that. I saw cuts from the interview you did just after the hostage crisis. You were composed, self-assured, and modest -- that counts. It was enough to convince me that your appearance on our show will translate into ratings gold.
Sam: Oh -- okay. We -- we shall see. Is there any words of advice you have?
Amelia: Tell the truth, you'll be fine.
Carly: Sonny is the best father in the world and no way do I think he would do anything to harm those boys. You have to know that.
Jason: Yeah, I do -- so does Sonny.
Carly: Good. Because no one -- not me, not Jax -- is trying to replace Sonny in Michael and Morgan's life. I mean, if it was just about parenting -- but it's not, okay? It's not, because we're not just co-parents. We are two volatile, emotional people that have very different views on what love is all about. Sonny thinks love is about control and I think it's about acceptance. And we're never going to agree on that, so that's why I'm on this jet right now. That's why me and Sonny being apart is the best thing for everyone.
Jason: Fine. You know you can't shield Michael and Morgan from your life. All right? And being with Jax is no more a guarantee of stability than being with Sonny.
Carly: Jax is different. At least he was. He may not be an option anymore.
Sonny: Construction seems to be coming along really fast. You going to reopen soon or --
Jax: And why is that your concern?
Sonny: I'm just -- I'm just trying to have a conversation, Jax. It's not a big deal.
Jax: Don't waste the few social skills that you have on me, okay? Carly's not here; that concludes our business. You're late.
Max: I'm sorry. I was just --
Jax: No excuses, okay? Just get here on time.
Sonny: Max? Have you seen Carly today?
Jax: Hold on.
Jax: You either work for him or you work for me and Carly, and now would be a good time to choose.
Sonny: Okay, I'm sorry. Yeah -- you know what? I'm sorry I even asked. I'll just -- I'll catch up with Carly later today, all right?
Max: Anything else?
Jax: No, just go do what we hired you to do.
Sonny: You -- you really should show Max a little more respect, maybe even gratitude because he played a big part in saving Carly during the hostage crisis.
Jax: Does that translate into being grateful to you, as well?
Sonny: Wouldn't hurt.
Jax: Well, I'm sorry because I'm all out of grateful since you took advantage of my fiancée's vulnerability to get her into bed.
Emily: Dad gave me this necklace. Would you mind helping me put it on?
Nikolas: Oh, of course.
Nikolas: I remember he gave you this after your first rotation at the hospital, right?
Nikolas: Everything okay today?
Emily: Whoo. Yeah, yeah. You know, what choice do I have? Somebody has to keep a level head.
Nikolas: Yeah, thanks.
Emily: I can already predict what's going to happen, Nikolas. The family's going to mill around drinking, tension you can cut it with a knife. Then we're going to sit down to hear my father's will and no matter what he leaves to whom, it's going to precipitate a huge fight, and before the lawyer's even out the door, everybody's going to be going for jugulars. Huh.
Nikolas: There you go. Well, honestly, the only people that I -- I can see who actually would contest the will would be, well, of course, Tracy and Edward, but -- well, maybe Ned. Okay, Monica, too, but that would only be because -- I'm sorry. I'm not really helping this.
Emily: Yeah -- no. You know, it's not the fighting that I'm dreading -- I'm certainly used to that by now. It's that this is going to be the first Quartermaine free-for-all without my dad. I don't know, just somehow I can't imagine --
Emily: You know, intellectually, I know that the pain will lessen with time. But I can't wrap my heart around the fact that he's gone and he's never going to come back.
Scott: I want to thank you for keeping peace at Alan's memorial service. That soft spot you have for me --
Scott: Pays off once in a while, huh?
Bobbie: Don't make the mistake of thinking I chose a side. I was just trying to keep you and Luke from drawing blood, because, you know, the last thing the Quartermaines needed was the two of you tearing up the place.
Scott: Yeah, it's -- it's tough for them. I -- I know what it's like to pack somebody's things up and put their whole life away.
Bobbie: Yeah. You know, truthfully, I'm worried about Monica. She's devastated and she's not wanting to look at it, you know? She's -- she's plowing through her life like everything's normal. I mean, they're reading Alan's will today -- she came to work.
Scott: Well, I -- I hope my presence there at the service didn't upset her any further.
Bobbie: Why would it?
Scott: Well, you know, sometimes a face from the past shows up. In a traumatic situation like that, you know, things can get a little skewy. She didn't say anything, did she?
Bobbie: Such as?
Scott: Well, you know -- well, I guess she's got a lot of things on her mind right now with the reading of the will and, you know, squabbling over all the money and stuff.
Bobbie: Let's hope it's only money.
Scott: What does that mean?
Bobbie: You know Alan. And you know the way he always loved to have the last word, and I wouldn't be surprised if he left a long laundry list of people who crossed him and exactly how he wanted them to pay.
Logan: Well, I can come up with a lot of reasons why you shouldn't hate me. For example, we both have Thursday afternoons off.
Lulu: You're really lame.
Logan: Oh. Okay, okay -- how's this? I'll bet I can guess your favorite ride.
Lulu: Okay, that's weird. How did you know that?
Logan: Well, I'm guessing, but clearly we are on the same wavelength.
Lulu: Somebody put you up to this, right?
Logan: Absolutely not.
Lulu: Then what's your angle?
Logan: Are you always so cynical?
Lulu: Usually, but I come by it honestly.
Logan: Quick with a quip -- I like it. You know, you're not like most girls. You actually have a working brain.
Lulu: Hmm. Well, maybe you've been hanging out with the wrong women.
Logan: Huh. Well, that's possible. What did you say your name was again?
Lulu: I didn't. Is -- is this normal for you, to come in here and chat up strangers or am I going to find that my wallet's been stolen?
Logan: Well, feel free to check, or you could do something radical like -- I don't know -- trust me.
Lulu: Hmm. I think I'll check.
Logan: What kind of parental influence could make a girl as pretty as you so suspicious?
Lulu: Oh. Yeah, well, I wouldn't point fingers if I were you, because you seem to have your own lock on the whole cynical thing.
Logan: Well, sometimes it's a matter of survival.
Spinelli: Ah. Excuse me -- ahem -- Slick. Sorry to hijack your game -- not -- but the blond one and I have important, private business matters to discuss.
Jax: You lie to Carly, you manipulate her, you put her through hell, but that's all okay, right, because there's always a justification that seems reasonable to you. Anything goes, right, as long as Sonny gets what Sonny wants.
Sonny: Well, I'm the first to admit, I've been selfish in the past.
Jax: As opposed to what?
Sonny: Carly and I almost died right here where you're standing. You weren't here to be part of it, so you have no clue the kind of hell that we went through and survived. What it proved is that, you know, the more things change, the more things stay the same. Carly and I are connected, we're alike, and, we've, you know -- nothing that's ever happened to either of us has broken that bond. I will admit Carly has feelings for you and you were great to her when we were apart, but I just got to tell you this -- I'm going to do whatever I have to do to make things work with Carly. I just thought I'd be honest about that.
Carly: Jax warned me from the beginning that he wouldn't be a pit stop between my reunions with Sonny. Now that I've lived down to his expectations, I'm not so sure he can forgive me. So this would be where you say if Jax can't get over this, that he really never loved me at all, because you know that's what you're thinking.
Jason: Why do you automatically think I'm judging you?
Carly: I guess I'm just being emotional me.
Jason: And do you want to hear what I really think?
Jason: Sometimes, something happens that makes you do something you never thought you would do, and then those actions stand and you -- you can't take them back. And no matter how much you want your life to go back to the way it was before, it's been changed forever.
Logan: A girl as pretty as you could not possibly be involved with this loser.
Lulu: Wow. Not only are you arrogant and presumptuous, but you're completely wrong. Spinelli happens to be a cyberspace genius, and he is sweet and gentle, and he's incredibly brave. And he's handsome in his own unique way, and any woman would be very lucky to have him.
Spinelli: I'm also connected -- huh, if you get my drift -- in a major way, so the godfather of Port Charles -- he would break your kneecaps if he even saw you talking to Lulu, so why don't you banish thyself, knuckle scraper, while you can still walk?
Logan: Is he for real?
Spinelli: Ah. Mr. Corinthos, sir, right on time. We were just talking about you. Hit me up high, bro.
Lulu: Hey, I'm really glad you're here. I need to talk with you.
Sonny: Okay, just come on in.
Logan: Hey, you -- you never gave me your name.
Lulu: Oh, that wasn't an oversight.
Logan: Oh. Damn. Don't you ever threaten me again.
Sonny: So what can I do for you?
Lulu: Tell me if I should believe this.
Sonny: Oh. Scott Baldwin framed your mother for murder?
Ned: This started how?
Skye: Oh, I'm sure --
Edward: Is everybody here?
Tracy: Darling -- success?
Luke: It's all handled, my love.
Tracy: Oh. What is he doing here?
Edward: Oh, Mr. Jacks, this is the -- this is the reading of my son's last will and testament, and I won't have you corporate raiding his assets.
Jax: Well, I'm here at the request of Alan's attorney.
Edward: What --
Jax: Apparently, I'm mentioned in the will.
Tracy: I tore through the will so fast, I didn't see the name "Jax." Did you change whatever --
Scott: I'll find it.
Luke: Why are you here? What could Alan's posthumous wishes possibly have to do with you?
Carly: Oh. Okay.
Jason: All right, a couple more minutes before your appointment. Can I get you anything?
Carly: No. No, I'm fine. I'm fine. I'm just sitting here trying to remember how long it took the last time I was here, getting a divorce -- sitting right here with Sonny, waiting, waiting to be freed from A.J.
Jason: Sonny came down with you?
Carly: Yeah. Kind of ironic, huh? We were virtual strangers. I mean, we were sitting here trying to figure out if he liked me or if he hated me, and vice versa.
Jason: Did you guys ever figure that out yet?
Carly: Well, that's the hard part with Sonny -- I like Sonny, I hate Sonny. The only constant is I can't stop loving him.
Luke: You got no business in this town, let alone this house.
Scott: Listen, Spencer, you might want to oil that squeaky wheel in your head. Before baby Jason was put into the bosom of the Quartermaine, I was his guardian. Alan probably remembers that, and he wants to show me a little gratitude.
Luke: No, he didn't.
Scott: What are you, Kreskin? They haven't even read the will yet.
Luke: Nobody wants you here, Baldwin.
Emily: I don't see any harm in letting him stay.
Luke: That's because you don't know him.
Monica: Let it go, Luke, please. I'm not in the mood for a scene right now.
Ned: I'd like to know Scott's real reason for being here. If we let him stay, then maybe all will be revealed.
Edward: Well, anything to get this over with. All right, let's go.
Lawyer: "I, Alan Quartermaine, being of sound mind and --"
Edward: Get to the meat of it. Go.
Lawyer: All right. Alan left generous donations to various AIDS charities, as well as the La Mesa Wellness Community for women with breast cancer. As for the personal bequests -- "to Alice Gunderson, our loyal housekeeper, $75,000."
Alice: That -- that -- that's got to be a mistake.
Tracy: I second that!
Lawyer: No, it's right here in black and white. Ahem -- shall I continue?
Ned: Please do.
Lawyer: "To my brother-in-law, Luke Spencer, for enduring the particular hell that is my sister, $250,000."
Edward: Oh, this is absurd.
Monica: A quarter of a million dollars?
Skye: Not nearly enough if you ask me.
Tracy: Nobody did.
Luke: I -- I really don't know what to say. I'm -- I'm deeply touched.
Ned: Are we sure that Alan was of sound mind?
Edward: No, of course he wasn't of sound mind. What else is in this ridiculous will?
Lawyer: Ahem -- Alan left an inheritance in trust for his grandson, Michael Corinthos. But since he "doesn't trust the boy's shady parents," he's named Jasper Jacks as Michael's trustee.
Edward: Instead of one of us? Oh, that -- that's really wonderful. Ahem.
Lawyer: "To my nephew Ned, I leave my box seats at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, on the condition he never share them with Monica."
Ned: Not much for grudges, was he?
Lawyer: Ahem -- "to my nephew, Dillon, I leave my cherished home movies. If anyone can edit them into something remotely interesting, I know it's you." Ahem -- "to my daughter Skye, I leave my mother's ruby earrings, because I know she loved them. But since Skye is now being provided for by Lorenzo Alcazar, any monetary endowment from me would be redundant."
Edward: Well, finally, something we can all agree on.
Lawyer: Ahem -- "to my son Jason, I leave the engraved signet ring my father gave to me. You don't have to wear it, just keep it. Maybe pass it on to your own son one day. And since you're gainfully employed as a gangster, you don't need any monetary endowment from me, either."
Monica: What is the date of that will?
Lawyer: The last codicil is two months ago.
Emily: I thought dad felt closer to Jason.
Edward: No, he could never accept Jason's chosen profession. It was like a dagger right to his heart.
Ned: Well, and Alan probably knew that Jason wouldn't want the money anyway. Please, continue.
Lawyer: "To my beautiful wife, Monica, word or material goods can't begin to express the depth of my love for you. So all my personal possessions will have to do. With the exception of my med school diploma -- which I'd like my father to have. I know he'll find it a great source of pride."
Edward: Is this Alan's idea of a joke?
Lawyer: Ahem -- "to my daughter Emily, I leave my mother's diamond necklace. I'd also like Emily to have my stethoscope -- she's earned it. Planning to live with a Cassadine, she doesn't need monetary endowment from me. And finally, to my beloved sister, Tracy, I bequeath the rest of my estate, including all of my bankable funds and E.L.Q. stock."
Edward: Oh, that does it. That will is a fake!
Stan: Spinelli, right?
Spinelli: And who wants to know?
Stan: Stan Johnson. We met at the safe house, remember?
Spinelli: Oh, right. You're the guy that used to handle Sonny and Jason's computer systems.
Stan: Actually, I still do, and you've been messing up my systems.
Spinelli: Uh -- the Jackal doesn't mess things up.
Stan: The Jackal's nothing but a slave to the corporate mind police, hopelessly addicted to the games designed to distract you from --
Spinelli: "Distract you from challenging the imperialist system." Oh, my God.
Spinelli: Dude, you're Che 9,000. The revolutionary of cyberspace. Oh, my God, man --
Spinelli: I'm so not worthy.
Stan: Yeah, yeah. Well, you got that right. Look, listen up, you young punk. I set up the Corinthos-Morgan corridor. You got that? There is no room in it for you.
Lulu: When Alan was having his heart attack in the hostage situation, he told me that he knew something else about Rick Webber's murder, and he had written it in a letter.
Sonny: Well, it's addressed to Luke.
Lulu: Yeah, I know, but it was sent to the house, and I was the first one to open it. But imagine my surprise to know that Alan thinks Scott Baldwin killed Rick Webber. I mean, should I believe it? How do I prove it?
Sonny: Do you want to? Hey, some things are better left buried.
Carly: I do realize that I just told you that I still love Sonny -- as I sit here waiting to get a divorce from Sonny. So you must think I'm completely certifiable.
Jason: I just think you're confused.
Carly: I wasn't confused, you know? Jax was it. Jax was the man I was going to spend the rest of my life with, and he left. And that was completely my fault.
Jason: Jax left to save his brother. How is that your fault?
Carly: He didn't want to save his brother. He didn't want to go take care of Jerry. I made him go. And why did I do that? Because I wanted to be generous, and I wanted to be noble, just like Jax. You know what I should do? I should stick to what I'm good at -- looking out for number one. And Sonny, you know -- Sonny says I'm being selfish, that I'm only going through with this divorce out of pride. That if I would just allow myself to be with him, that I would be happy. So then I have all that to think about, so I don't really know.
Man: Carly Corinthos?
Jason: Last chance. You need to make up your mind.
Amelia: How did you escape your captors?
Sam: The gunmen were distracted. And my boyfriend, who was -- who was also there -- he was in the lobby. He let me know when it was a good time to escape. And I -- I did, and I was -- I was able to find a door that led to some upper-level offices where I climbed out a second-story window and I made my way to the street where the police were waiting.
Amelia: Huh. Did anything prepare you for this?
Sam: What do you mean, exactly? Like mountain climbing, or --
Amelia: I mean, feeling threatened, in mortal danger, in what's supposed to be a safe setting. Have you ever been forced to take action in an unexpectedly violent situation?
Sam: Well, I -- I'm not sure I really under-- no, I mean, as -- as far as drawing from past experience in -- in the hotel siege, no. Absolutely not. I can honestly say that I wasn't thinking about my past. I wasn't even thinking about myself. The only thing I could think of was how am I going to get these people out safely.
Edward: That will is a farce. Now, Alan may have resented me, but certainly not enough to leave me his worthless diploma and nothing else.
Monica: And he never would have cut Emily out of his will no matter who she was living with.
Skye: Tracy made out like a bandit.
Dillon: Hmm. So, spill it, Mom. How'd you do it?
Tracy: How'd I do what, sweetheart?
Ned: Don't even try to act innocent. We all get overlooked, and you, of all people, end up with the lion's share of Alan's fortune?
Edward: Mm-hmm, that's preposterous.
Monica: Admit it, Tracy. You cheated this family and your brother's memory.
Edward: Mm-hmm, you and that reprobate who helped you, managed to take all of the money that should have been ours.
Tracy: Well, excuse me, but Alice got $75,000, which will keep her in wrestling trunks for the rest of her life, and nobody's accusing her.
Lawyer: Alan's will was safe in my law offices. There's a record of it in the firm's computer.
Edward: Well, I don't care. It's as phony as a three-dollar bill.
Monica: I want to know how you --
Tracy: Why are you listening to --
Emily: Oh, for God's sake, stop it! Oh -- we just heard my father's will. Anybody who doesn't like it, too bad, this is what he wanted. I accept his -- wishes. Dad knew that I'd much rather have something of grandmother's than money, and he knew that Jason and Skye don't need money, either.
Edward: Well, then how do you explain his asinine bequest to Tracy?
Emily: Tracy was Dad's sister. He knew that all she's ever really wanted was respect for her business sense and a say in E.L.Q. You never willingly gave her either of those things, so Dad did -- end of story. Let it rest.
Spinelli: With all due respect, Mr. 9,000, Stone Cold hired me.
Stan: Yeah, well, I just fired you. And until I get specific instructions from Sonny or Jason to let you back into the system, that's how it is. So you know, you better stay out, or I'll run a tape worm through those Chicago servers you think no one else knows about so fast, it'll make your head spin. Vinnie, let me get my usual, man.
Stan: Kids, man.
Lulu: Yeah, I 'm afraid to know for sure if -- if Scott Baldwin really is the killer, because I would have to tell my dad, and after he killed Scott with his bare hands, he would realize the part he played in my mom shutting down. But on the other hand, my mom deserves to be proven innocent.
Sonny: You're losing perspective. If telling the truth would set Laura free, or whispering in her ear would get her back, then I'd say absolutely, do it. But the truth is, it's not going to happen, so what is it going to accomplish, right? Look, I'm a strong man. I've been shot, I've been knifed, I've been left for dead in the street. But I've never felt more pain than knowing that I'd hurt the woman I love. If Luke finds out that he made a mistake by telling Laura that she killed Webber -- I don't know about Luke, but it would destroy me.
Lulu: But if I don't come forth, then Scott gets away with murder in letting my mom take the blame.
Sonny: I have no use for Baldwin. But I believe that he loved your mother. And if -- okay, listen - if he wrecked her, he's going to have to live with that every day of his life, and that's more punishment than you or the law could ever dish out.
Judge: You listed irreconcilable differences as a cause for the divorce request.
Judge: "Petitioner's first complaint is that she entered into the marriage under false pretenses." Is that correct, as well?
Carly: Well -- the -- the truth is, I knew that Sonny wanted the marriage to be real, and I went through with it. Just skip on to the next part, please.
Judge: Your second complaint is that "your spouse used your children so that they would be against you."
Carly: I don't want it to be phrased that way, because that makes it sound like Sonny set out to hurt his kids, and he would never, ever do anything like that.
Judge: Do you want this divorce or not?
Carly: Yes. Yes, absolutely, I want this divorce. I want to be able to go back to New York and tell Sonny that it's over, that he can't stop me, or -- or fight the divorce, and it's a done deal. I want this.
Judge: Then I'm sorry, but you have a problem.
Amelia: Let's take a break.
Sam: Sure, no problem. I hope you're getting what you wanted.
Amelia: Oh, you're doing great.
Sam: Thank --
Amelia: What, is something wrong?
Sam: No. No, it's just I -- I -- I used to have a -- a watch like that. I -- lost it somewhere.
Nikolas: So how did it go?
Emily: Huh. Tracy forged the will.
Nikolas: You're kidding me, right?
Emily: No. I -- I wasn't surprised. Just like I wasn't surprised when my family started battling right in front of the lawyer.
Nikolas: Just like you predicted. I'm -- I'm sorry.
Emily: No, no, no, don't be. You know, a funny thing happened. When the fighting started, it was almost as if my dad was in the room just cheering them on. You know, I -- I stood there sort of taking it all in. And suddenly, it was like I could just feel him nudging me to join the fray.
Emily: You know? To jump right in there and just shut them all up.
Emily: And it's the same scenario I've lived a million times, but it was like he was saying keep the traditions now? Keep fighting, keep living, keep loving. So, that's what I'm going to promote. Huh.
Nikolas: Sounds good to me.
Emily: In the meantime, there is something I need from you.
Nikolas: You name it.
Monica: I hope you're proud of yourself, Tracy. By forging Alan's will, you ruined his last chance to say goodbye.
Luke: Accentuate the positive, Dr. Quartermaine. You got to keep the house.
Monica: Oh, please --
Edward: You know, only Alan would be incompetent enough to choose a law firm so that you and Luke could breach the security and wreak havoc on this family. You know something? You never cease to disappoint me, Tracy.
Ned: Well, I am going to reserve judgment. I choose to believe that you would never stoop so low as to subvert Alan's dying wishes. Because of course, if you did, I would never be able to speak to you again.
Dillon: Well, I guess it's my turn. Good role model, Mom. Blood money -- cool.
Luke: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. This is not guilt I see, is it?
Tracy: Why should I be guilty? I'm the big winner.
Luke: Wife, you are the big winner in my eyes, E.L.Q. stock or not.
Alan: Shame, Tracy. You should be ashamed of yourself. Tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk, tsk.
Scott: Hi. Can I buy you another cup --
Lulu: Say nothing to me, you lying scum-sucking snake!
Stan: I put a search engine in place that sends me an alert anytime your name appears in any sort of legal transaction, and I just got notified.
Sonny: What's going on?
Stan: Well, it's -- it's taking place in the Dominican Republic right now, and -- um --
Sonny: Stan, just -- just go ahead. What?
Stan: Well, Sonny, it's in an attorney's office. Carly's in the process of divorcing you.
Max: So if you guys see anything strange, let me know, okay? Thank you very much.
Jax: Have you seen Carly yet?
Max: Well, if you would have let me explain earlier, I would have told you that --
Jax: Sorry, Max, that I bit your head off, okay? Sonny was getting on my nerves. What did you want to tell me?
Max: Look, I took Michael and Morgan over to Bobbie's, all right? Mrs. C went to the Dominican Republic to get a divorce.
Jax: I take it from your tone you don't approve.
Max: Look, straight up - yeah, it wasn't fair of Sonny to trick Carly into marrying him. But she fought it with everything she had, because that's how much she loved you. But you made no effort to understand that. You just blew up at her, you know? You treated her like something you find on the bottom of your shoe. So, if you've both lost Carly, you both deserve what you got.
Carly: Sonny bribed you, didn't he?
Judge: Are you very sure that you want to insult me?
Jason: I apologize for my friend, okay? She's been under a lot of stress, and she traveled down here under the impression that you could end her marriage today.
Judge: I can, but only in the Dominican Republic, not New York.
Carly: That wasn't the case the last time I got divorced here.
Judge: The laws have changed. Should your husband choose to contest it, then you'll have to go through divorce proceedings in New York.
Carly: So you're saying to end my marriage, Sonny has to sign the papers? Hmm. What's the chances of that?
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Tracy: You lying snake!
Scott: It isn't what you think.
Lulu: I know what you did.
Ric: Last chance, Alexis. Sign over custody of Molly to me, and we can avoid this whole ugly mess.
