Patrick: If you're leaving the Scorpios', the obvious solution is to move back in with me.

Robin: I told you I'm not ready to do that.

Patrick: Okay, so the apartment that you picked out, the apartment you basically decorated, where the man you supposedly love lives, is not where you want to reside? That's -- that's fine, I can try and deal with that. But you have other friends, you have options.

Robin: I know --

Patrick: Why move in with Nikolas?

Robin: Look, because I just need you to trust me on this one, okay? Can you do that for me?

Patrick: Why? What's going on between you and Nikolas?

[James chuckles]

James: Whoa. Faking an early collapse from the poison was very clever but ultimately ill-advised.

Nikolas: That was too easy.

James: Well, it presents you with an interesting dilemma. You can run to Dr. Scorpio and hope that she will analyze and duplicate the counteragent -- which she'll be unable to do in the time that you have left -- or you can inject yourself and live for the next 24 hours while I take my leave. And when you need another injection, you will die a slow and painful death. But at least you will have told your loved ones goodbye, or maybe made a farewell video for your little boy -- hmm. Or you can choose option three, which is you give me the syringe back, and you can extend your life indefinitely. Which one shall it be?

Sam: There you go, Sir.

Man: I know you. You were on TV the other night. You saved all those hostages.

Sam: Well, actually, the police saved them. I just -- I played a very small --

Man: You were modest on TV, too.

Sam: Really, it wasn't that big of a deal.

Man: How many people would've jumped off that ledge? You were amazing. Wait till I tell my wife you're here.

Amelia: I'd like to check in.

Sam: If you're staying in Port Charles to try and convince me to take the TV job, I am still not interested. I just want my life to go back to normal.

Sonny: Hey.

Sonny: Are you leaving?

Carly: I'm not being fair to anyone, Sonny, especially you.

Sonny: What is going on here, Carly?

Carly: Ask Jason.

Jax: Oh -- good to see you back on the job.

Clerk: It's good to be here, Mr. Jacks.

Jax: Any residual jitters from the hostage crisis?

Clerk: so far, so good.

Jax: Glad to hear it. Is Carly around?

Clerk: She hasn't been in all evening.

Jax: Oh. Well, this is the first night we've been open since the hostage crisis. It's too bad she had other priorities.

Sam: You are in Room 610, it's a garden view. How long are you planning on staying?

Amelia: Well, that depends on you.

Sam: Well, I told you that I'm not interested in the TV job.

Amelia: Look, all I ask is that you save your judgment until I show you the research we did on the interview.

Sam: Oh --

Amelia: The audience was very responsive.

Sam: I understand, but there must be thousands of people who want to host "Everyday Heroes." Why me?

Amelia: You're more than just a hero, Sam. You're a hero with TV Q.

Sam: Yeah, yeah, yeah, but you wanted to do this before you saw the audience research. Why?

Amelia: I have good instincts -- I knew you'd be a hit. Look, yes, we could hold auditions and possibly find someone with your qualities, but that person wouldn't have rescued 15 hostages. You are the real deal, and the camera loves you -- that is too rare of a combination for me to let you walk away without a fight.

Marty: Um, guests are waiting to check in. Perhaps you can carry on your conversation --

Sam: Yes, sir, I was just saying goodbye to Ms. Joffe. Enjoy your view.

Amelia: Thank you. Anyone can work behind a desk. You have unique qualities and the chance to help other people. It would be a waste to ignore that opportunity.

Sam: Hi.

Maxie: Don't even think about coming on to my friend.

Lulu: We're not allowed to talk?

Maxie: No, you're not.

Lulu: Wow. Curb your paranoia -- I didn't even know he knew you -- and I hope you're paying attention, because Maxie's showing her sarcastic true colors.

Maxie: Where do you get off judging me?

Lulu: Hmm, let's start with the fact that you lied to Lucky about a baby that didn't exist, and you fed him pills to get him to sleep with you.

Maxie: But you've never lied to a guy -- oh, except for Dillon, who you lied to so he would sleep with you, even though he was in love with my sister? He never would've looked at you, Lulu.

Lulu: Well, at least I didn't feed Dillon pills or fake a pregnancy and a miscarriage.

Maxie: Don't expect Coop to be surprised -- he knows all about my terrible past. And at least I didn't get pregnant and abort a baby because it was too much trouble.

Coop: Hey, whoa -- oh -- hey -- break it up!

Maxie: Get off of me!

Logan: Coop, get Maxie under control!

Lulu: Let go of me! What the hell are you doing?

Coop: Come on, fight's over.


James: Oh, dear -- your breathing seems so very labored. You see, stress amplifies the effects of the poison. You'll be needing the counteragent very, very soon, my friend.

Nikolas: I was prepared to help you when I was the only one at risk, but not Robin.

[James chuckles]

James: It's rather amazing, you know, the way you seem to believe that you're in a position to negotiate.

Nikolas: It appears that I'm the one holding the counteragent.

James: And you are so chivalrous that you're willing to die on the assumption that I will leave Robin alone. You have lovely, lovely manners, nightmare Nikolas, but you're severely lacking common sense. If you die, Robin will be killed, as well. And it won't be a fast death, either. Robin struggled to live after I shot her at the Metro Court -- it was most, most entertaining, and I would really love to see a repeat performance. So make up your mind -- the clock is ticking.

Robin: Nikolas and I are good friends, and he happens to have a huge house with a lot of servants.

Patrick: Servants? When did servants become high on your priority list?

Robin: Well, I don't have to pay rent.

Patrick: Robin, you're a doctor, you can afford it.

Robin: I just -- I don't want the hassle. I don't want to have to look for the apartment and decorate the apartment and --

Patrick: You love decorating. The minute you walked into my place you couldn't wait to get a couch in there -- that was two days after I moved in.

Robin: No, no, no, I just wanted you to have a couch so that you felt at home. It wasn't about me loving to shop for sofas.

Patrick: Why Wyndemere? I mean, don't you want to spend any time with me at all?

Robin: Of course I do, and I will.

Patrick: Look, we have busy schedules here. Now, why don't you try and find a place that's closer by?

Robin: Look, I'm going to make it work. I promise.

Patrick: How long do you plan on doing this, living with Nikolas?

Robin: I don't know -- I haven't thought that far ahead.

Patrick: Okay, well, why don't you just move into your other place with Lainey and Kelly, stay on the sofa bed until you find another place?

Robin: You know, stop telling me what to do.

Patrick: Well, then you give me a reason, one that actually makes sense. What are you hiding from me?

Robin: Nikolas is one of my closest friends. I mean, he carried me out of the lobby after the hostage situation and saved me from an explosion.

Patrick: So this is gratitude?

Robin: No, I'm just saying that we share a lot of history.

Patrick: Oh, like when you turned to him when you were going through that rough patch this summer?

Robin: Nikolas is in love with Emily.

Patrick: Is she living at Wyndemere, too?

Robin: I don't know -- what difference does it make?

Patrick: It makes a big difference. The both of you are supposed to be in committed relationships with other people, but for some reason you're moving in together.

Robin: Look, I gave you all of my reasons why I think it's a good idea to move in there. You just can't accept it, and now you're digging around trying to make it something that it's not.

Patrick: Robin, we love each other. Now, I might not be perfect, and maybe you honestly don't want to move in with me, but there's something here that you're not telling me.

Robin: No, I'm moving in with a friend. And if you're too insecure deal with it, well, then that's not my problem.

Lulu: Did I ask you to interfere?

Logan: Someone was going to get their eyes scratched out.

Lulu: That is my business, not yours! I don't know you, and I don't want to.

Maxie: What's going on with you and Lulu?

Coop: Hey, I almost knocked her over and I was apologizing, that's it.

Maxie: You walked off your job today -- does that have anything to do with her?

Coop: Where do you get this?

Maxie: If she's coming on to you, it's only to get back at me.

Coop: Maxie, you have been great to me, and I owe you big time, but I have bigger problems than your fight with Lulu.

Logan: Trouble in paradise, guys?

Maxie: Yeah -- Coop has suddenly decided he wants to be a cop. He applied to PCPD.

Logan: Hey -- seriously?

Coop: Seriously.

Logan: Well, that makes sense. I mean, he was always the better MP than I was -- he didn't mind getting shot at.

Coop: Thanks for the vote of confidence.

Logan: Hey -- your security gig at the hotel will be up for grabs; I should put my name in.

Maxie: Cops are in danger 24, and all you're worried about is getting your friend's job?

Coop: Hey, working at the PCPD is a lot less dangerous than being an M.P. in Iraq, and I came through that just fine.

Maxie: So you got lucky. Why push it?

Coop: Hey, there is no point in arguing.

Maxie: Did you put him up to this?

Logan: No, no. This came totally out of left field.

Maxie: Well, there's more going on than he's saying and I'm going to find out what it is.

Jax: And we're confident at the Metro Court that we won't be the target of future violence.

Reporter: You're satisfied with the security?

Jax: Well, the botched robbery proves that the Metro Court can withstand the most sophisticated assault and, you know, we've made some security changes and we're very confident.

Reporter: Thanks, Mr. Jacks.

Jax: You're welcome.

Reporter: So the heroine looks like she's back at work.

Jax: Oh, Sam McCall?

Reporter: It's a great angle that she stayed on despite the trauma of the ordeal. I'd like to get an interview.

Jax: You're going to have to ask her.

Reporter: Thanks.

Sam: Thank you.

Reporter: Ms. McCall? Jim Harlow from wlpc. Do you have a minute to answer a few questions?

Sam: I'm so sorry, but I've -- I've got to get back to work.

Marty: No, no, it's all right. Take your time.

Jim: The coverage will be great publicity for the hotel.

Sam: Ahem. Okay.

Jim: Great.

Carly: Thank you.

[Carly sighs]

Carly: Hey. Sorry I'm late. So, how we doing?

Jax: 60% occupancy rate, which isn't bad for a hotel that recently had their lobby blown up.

Carly: I see wlpc sent over a cameraman and a reporter.

Jax: Well, the reopening is news.

Carly: We should make a statement.

Jax: I already did. Now they're talking to Sam.

Carly: They're talking to Sam? Why don't you stop her?

Jax: Why? It's good press.

Carly: Because they're going to replay the footage of her jumping off the building, and probably the explosion.

Jax: Oh --

Carly: Are you trying to scare away potential guests?

Jax: Okay, Carly, why don't you just tell me what you're really upset about.

Jason's voice: I want what's best for our child.

Elizabeth: I understand what I'm asking, okay? If you wanted me to give this baby over to you and Sam, I wouldn't be able to do it, either. But if you can make the sacrifice, then you'll know that this child is safe and loved and a part of a happy family. Please, Jason. Just let Lucky be this baby's father.

[Knock on door]

Sonny: You're all dressed up.

Jason: Yeah, yeah, I took Carly to Lucky and Elizabeth�s wedding.

Sonny: Did something happen?

Jason: What do you mean?

Sonny: Well, Carly comes into my office, practically takes my clothes off, right? You interrupt, you walk out without saying a word, then Carly walks out two minutes later. Only explanation you have is that you got something to tell me, so what do you got --

Jason: Well, I keep telling Carly just to leave me out of this.

Sonny: Well, she's -she relies on you, now she's upset. What the hell's going on?

Jason: Obviously, she's not thinking clearly right now.

Sonny: Last thing Carly said before she left was "Ask Jason," so I'm asking you as a friend. Why is my wife upset?

[Jason sighs]

Jason: Carly slept with Jax.

Lulu: Hey -- what is the deal with you and Maxie Jones?

Logan: Jealous?

Lulu: Ha! If you want to be friends with her, then you deserve what you get.

Logan: Well, thank you for the warning.

Lulu: Doesn't answer my question.

Logan: Ahem. Coop is my friend, Maxie's his friend, so now I know Maxie.

Lulu: Well, that doesn't explain why you keep showing up.

Logan: Be glad that I did.

Lulu: You break up a fight between me and Maxie, you come to my house and run Scott Baldwin off. Why do you insist on saving --

Logan: You're the one who keeps dragging your drama into my world. So instead of jumping on the defensive, you could've just said "thank you." But let me guess -- gratitude isn't your thing?

Milo: Is everything okay?

Lulu: It's fine -- Logan�s leaving.

Logan: Who's this, your babysitter?--

Lulu: Actually, Milo�s my boyfriend.

Logan: Well, not exactly what I would've expected, but --

Dillon: No -- no, you're supposed to be working.

Milo: I'm helping Lulu.

Dillon: Oh, yeah? With what?

Lulu: Get rid of Logan.

Logan: Okay, I can take a hint.

Lulu: Bye.

Milo: Bye.

Dillon: Who's --

Spinelli: Blond One! Allow me to join you in spreading the good tidings.

Dillon: What is he talking about?

Lulu: Uh -- Spinelli --

Spinelli: I am officially the Blond One's boyfriend, ha-ha!

Milo: I thought I was your boyfriend.

Lulu: Uh -- well --

Dillon: I'm sorry -- I'm sorry, you're delusional, you're delusional, and you -- you're crazy. Why are you stringing them both along when you and I already have history? And this is like -- "ew."

Lulu: Okay, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Um -- um -- I have something -- someone calling.

Coop: Anyone drop a pacifier?

Ric: Yeah. Thanks. That's my daughter�s. I always seem to have at least one of these on me. Can I help you?

Coop: Yeah, I'm here to see Detective Rodriguez.

Ric: Regarding a case?

Coop: No, I'm a security guard down at the Metro Court. I stopped a purse-snatching today and Detective Rodriguez was called to the scene. I'd like to apply for the police academy, and I was hoping he'd be able to tell me how to do it.

Alfred: I will tell Mr. Cassadine you're here.

Robin: No, no, that's okay. Uh -- Nikolas is expecting me.

Alfred: As you wish.

Robin: Thank you. Nikolas?

James: He's indisposed at the moment.

Robin: Nikolas -- Nikolas, are you okay? Oh, God, he's barely breathing!

James: Ooh, very perceptive.

Robin: Nikolas is suffocating.

James: Unfortunately, he tried to defy me, so he's paying the price.

Robin: He needs the counteragent.

James: I need you to understand that Nikolas' life is on the line. So if you tell anyone of our little arrangement or deviate from my instructions in any way, Nikolas will suffer this agony all over again.

Robin: Fine. I get it. Will you please just give him the counteragent now?

Jim: Were you worried the lobby might explode as you climbed down the wall?

Sam: Yeah, I was -- I was terrified. But luckily all the hostages got out in time.

Jim: Thanks to you.

Sam: No, no -- thanks to the police. But as you can see, the Metro Court hotel is restored, the lobby is up and running again, and it's back and it's better than ever.

Carly: You have no idea what it was like.

Jax: I can imagine what it --

Carly: No, you can�t.

Jax: Of course I can imagine --

Carly: We sat for 12 hours with guns to our heads, not knowing if we were going to die, not knowing if the lobby was going to blow up. And I'm sorry, I don't want to relive it so Sam can talk to a reporter.

Jax: It's -- it's a sound bite for the nightly news.

Carly: Oh, yeah, so she can bask in her moment of glory at the hotel's expense? No, thank you.

Jax: You know what? You're taking our relationship problems out on Sam.

Carly: No, I'm not. You want to know why?

Jax: Why?

Carly: We don't have a relationship.

Jax: Oh, of course.

Carly: Your choice, yeah. Very cold and abrupt, but whatever works for you, Jax.

Jax: Aren't you even going to ask me about Alexis?

Carly: I don't have to ask you about Alexis.

Jax: Oh.

Carly: I practically caught you in the act. You guys didn't consummate the marriage the first time around. Better late than never, right?

Jax: Carly -- hey, hey. You're jumping to conclusions.

Carly: Really?

Jax: Yes.

Carly: So you're going to stand there and you're going to look me in the eye and tell me you didn't sleep with her? I don't want to know!

Jax: No, I'd be glad to --

Carly: No, no!

Jax: I'd be glad to tell you.

Carly: I do not want to know, because you are playing games with me. You are doing exactly what you are accusing me of doing with Sonny, and you know what? It has to stop. It has to stop, because what we had was really, really great, and we're going to drag it out and we are just going to hurt each other, and I don't want to do that.

Jax: Hey, hey, hey. Listen -- hey, I don't want us to be over, I don�t. You're going to have to meet me halfway. Okay?

Carly: I can't do this.

Sonny: "Carly slept with Jax" -- what am I supposed to do with that?

Jason: I'm not telling you to --

Sonny: I want this marriage to work, but she keeps fighting me. Go ahead; you defend her, because that's what you've been doing for a while now.

Jason: I'm not defending anybody, okay? I don't know if she's right or she's wrong. I just know that she's been hurt, she's confused, she's trying to do the right thing for her and her kids -- in Carly's way.

Sonny: What am I supposed to do here? How can I keep fighting for -- for her if she's going to keep sleeping with -- with Jax?

Jason: Hasn't Carly told you over and over that she does not want to be married to you?

Sonny: You know why she took you to the Dominican Republic? Because she couldn't do it on her own, that's why, because she needed someone there. What does that tell you?

Jason: It tells me that this is very hard for her.

Sonny: No, it also tells you that we have that kind of connection, and that we always will.

Jason: Maybe sleeping with Jax was, you know, Carly's way of trying to end it with you once and for all, and you're the only one who can decide if it worked.

Carly: Hey, Lulu.

Lulu: Hey, Leticia let me in. Um -- do you have a minute? I really, really need to talk to you.

Carly: Yeah. Sure, I can talk to you.

Lulu: Okay. Um --

Carly: What's going on?

Lulu: So this jerk Logan has been hanging around me, but I blew him off, so that's totally taken care of, but now Milo, Spinelli, and Dillon are all worried.

Carly: I don't understand the problem here.

Lulu: They like me, but more than friends, which is really flattering and, you know, I appreciate that, but I don't know what to do about it, and it should be a no-brainer because, you know, I was in love with Dillon last summer, but Milo is sweet, and Spinelli is weird, but, you know, he's smart and brave and he risked his life to save my --

Carly: What's the question here, Lulu?

Lulu: How do I choose without breaking someone's heart or maybe even my own?

Carly: You are asking the wrong person.

Max: I got your message, Mr. C. Has the deal with Cooper Barrett gone wrong already?

Sonny: Okay, forget Cooper Barrett. Did you see Carly at the Metro tonight? What happened?

Max: Oh, I -- you know, I didn't see her, and even if I did, I'm not sure that I would tell you.

Sonny: Since when?

Max: Uh, well, you -- Mrs. C is more than my employer. She's my friend.

Sonny: Right.

Max: You know, and we've been through a lot together.

Sonny: All right, what about us? We haven't been through a lot together? I mean, years of -- of working together, life-and-death situations?

Max: I know that, Mr. C.

Sonny: I got to know that you're loyal to me.

Max: Boss, anything to do with business, you can count on me always.

Sonny: Okay, I'm just -- what?

Max: But Mrs. C has a right to her own privacy.

Sonny: I'm just asking if she needs help. Why is that invading her privacy?

Max: I feel like if you want to know how Mrs. C is feeling, maybe you should ask her yourself.

Sonny: Well, I just -- if she -- if she needs help, I may be able to help her. If you see her, can you at least tell me?

Max: Look, I know how you feel about Mrs. C, okay?

Sonny: Okay.

Max: But I'm sorry -- I'm not going to spy on her for you or anyone else.

Sonny: By "anyone else," do u mean Jax? Is that what you mean?

Max: Mr. Jacks has not asked me to spy on Mrs. C, but even if he had, I would tell him the same thing -- Mrs. C makes her own choices and I'm not taking sides here. I try to treat Carly with respect.

Sonny: Uh-huh.

Max: Boss, maybe you should try it sometime?

[Door opens and closes]

Spinelli: Hey, just ignore my presence, Stone Cold. I'm just going to grab my computer.

Jason: Spinelli, I just -- I wanted to say thank you.

Spinelli: Uh -- well, yeah, dude, you're -- you're welcome. Uh -- for what?

Jason: For going to Lucky and Elizabeth�s wedding. I know that you think it's wrong that -- that I haven't told Sam, but you still showed up and helped Lulu keep the secret and I really appreciate that.

Spinelli: There's something I got to know, dude, okay? You're the only person I know that tells the truth always, always, so, well, why are you -- why are you doing this?

Jason: Because Sam has been hurt enough and I can't -- just, I can't tell her that Elizabeth is having my child, Spinelli. I can't do it.

Spinelli: Okay, listen. Okay, you and Elizabeth -- all right, you tell the truth, okay? Okay, no, no, listen -- you tell the truth, you -- you tell everyone. You -- you blow the whole thing wide open, okay, all right? And -- and then -- then people will be upset, you know, and give you lectures, but ignore them. I mean, you're really good at ignoring people, so then you -- well, I don't know -- you share the custody. You get -- you have one baby and four people to love it, that's a lot of love.

Jason: Spinelli, it's not that simple -- it won't be that easy.

Spinelli: Right, no, I know. Lucky, Lucky -- he's got issues, uh, but if he can't handle it and goes to drugs, I mean, that's -- that's his decision, right? You know, maybe -- maybe even Elizabeth would give you and Sam the baby and then -- then you could give Sam what she wants most in this world -- your child.

Sam: We are all very happy that the crisis is over, and here at the Metro Court it will be a busy spring, I'm sure.

Jim: I'm sure your fellow staff members are reassured to have you here. Thanks, Sam.

Sam: My pleasure.

Amelia: So, now it's back to the registration desk? Filling out forms, making keys, smiling pleasantly at guests?

Sam: I like my job.

Amelia: You like being on television better. I'm not imagining the way that your face lights up in front of a camera.

Sam: No. You -- you might be. It's -- it's good P.R. for the Metro Court, actually.

Amelia: Well, but also distracting for the staff when news crews descend on you every time you show up for work.

Sam: Come on, that's only temporary. It'll blow over in a week or so.

Amelia: Is that what you want? There are plenty of people who can stand behind a registration desk -- far, far fewer who can get in front of a camera and make an audience take notice.

Sam: This all happened by chance.

Amelia: This could be your future. You can have an exciting career and help people at the same time -- thousands of people, maybe even millions. Come on, what are you afraid of?

Sam: You're right -- I mean, it is an opportunity of a lifetime, and I would be a fool to refuse.

Amelia: So you're in?

Sam: Yeah!

Amelia: Oh!

Sam: Yes, I'm in!

Amelia: You won't regret it, Sam. This is going to change your life.

Sam: Wow.

Maxie: I don't know what made you think of this really rotten idea, but police work is dangerous and difficult.

Coop: What, you think I can't do it?

Maxie: No, I actually think that you would be great at it, but why risk it? You are hiding a secret that could keep you in prison for the next 20 years. What if one of the other Metro Court gunmen sees you?

Coop: Two survivors who have been sent away to Albany where they'll stand trial in federal court. I mean, they can't I.D. me anyway -- Craig was the only one that saw my face, and he's long gone.

Maxie: Coop, you had such a good job at the Metro Court. I worked down the hall at the boutique, we got to see each other on our breaks. I mean, I thought you liked security work.

Coop: I didn't say I wanted to do it forever.

Maxie: You only tried it for a few weeks.

Coop: I am doing this. The only way to stop me is to turn me in.

Maxie: You know I would never do that.

Coop: Then trust me. I need to do this.

Det. Rodriguez: Hey. Got your forms filled out?

Coop: Yeah, all done.

Ric: Well, good luck. Seem like just the type of applicant the PCPD is looking for.

Patrick: Mac? I need your help. There's something seriously wrong with Robin.

Robin: Here.

Nikolas: You shouldn't have come back here.

Robin: Shh. Just try and relax, okay?

Nikolas: I can't -- I can't protect you from him, Robin.

James: No, you can't, but brave little Robin isn't worried about that.

Robin: No, I can take care of myself.

James: You see, that attitude may cause you to do all sorts of foolhardy things such as duplicate the counteragent even though I've told you it's a complete waste of time.

Robin: Oh, yeah, and I'm just supposed to take your word on that?

James: Well, I was always very straightforward about the methods from the moment when we first met. I was after the briefcase, I told you I was going to blow up the lobby, and I did. Now, I want you to keep Nikolas alive.

Robin: I intend to do that.

James: As long as you do, Paddy boy will remain safe. If you start some trouble and Nikolas dies, Patrick Drake will spend the rest of his life paralyzed from the neck down.

Robin: Look, I'll do whatever you want. Just leave Patrick alone.

Carly: Okay.

Lulu: Thank you.

Carly: You're welcome. This should be easy. Take it slow. Take it slow, figure out which guy you like, which guy treats you the best, which guy cares about you, and then it should be easy to make your decision.

Lulu: Okay.

Carly: But you know what? It's possible to love more than one guy. And it's extremely painful if you do, so you need to proceed with caution.

Lulu: Wow, it sounds like you're really speaking from experience here, aren't you?

Carly: That would be the understatement of the year.

Lulu: What happened? I mean, I think I know because Jax is back in town and I saw you and Sonny at the Metro Court and you guys were basically willing to die for each other, which pretty much epitomizes true love.

Carly: I'm just trying to give you the same advice I give myself. Don't make promises you can't keep. Don't be with one guy and just know for certain that he's the one you want to be with, and the second you're alone with the next guy, you know that he's the one you want to be with.

Lulu: Hmm -- okay, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. I don't even know if I want to be with Spinelli or Milo or even Dillon.

Carly: But you said you like all three.

Lulu: Yeah! I want to know which one I should date, if any of them. I mean, they're all my friends and I don't want to mess that up.

Carly: Okay, fine. Then take it slow and just see what develops.

Lulu: Or just skip it completely because it sounds like love is way more trouble than it's worth.

Carly: You can't skip it completely. You can�t. Love is uncontrollable. And it will make you do things you never thought you would.

Jason: Elizabeth loves this baby, so does Lucky. They're happily married, okay? If I claim my baby, I'm going to turn everybody's life upside down. I can't -- I can't be that selfish. I owe my child better.

Spinelli: Yeah -- nothing's perfect. But this is your kid we're talking about. Hey, look, did you ever think that the -- the baby might be better off with you?

Sam: Why so serious?

Spinelli: Uh -- Lulu's in -- in desperate need of my cyber services. Uh, I -- I fear she's being led astray by a visitor of uncertain intentions.

Sam: Oh, okay. Well, I -- I hope she's okay.

Spinelli: Yeah, well, The Jackal would never let anything happen to his girlfriend.

Sam: Oh.

Spinelli: Even if it means forming an alliance with the others.

Sam: "The others"?

Spinelli: The ones who tried and failed to win the Blond One's heart.

Sam: Lulu's dating Spinelli?

Jason: Uh -- hmm -- he seems to think so. I --

Sam: Has Spinelli ever even dated before?

Jason: Not that I know of.

Sam: Well I hope he doesn't get hurt.

Jason: I'm not going to -- I'm going to stay out of it, so --

Sam: Right -- come here.

Jason: I thought -- I thought you were -- I thought you were working late tonight.

Sam: Uh-uh. Nope. Um � Jason, �there has been a change of plans.

Patrick: Robin and I are both strong-willed, and we fight -- although it's not necessarily fighting. It's more working out boundaries, trying to find common ground when we're both used to doing our own thing. Living together for us is -- is uncertain territory.

Mac: So far, I'm not hearing any reason to be alarmed.

Patrick: You're not the least bit concerned that Robin decided to move in with Nikolas?

Mac: They've been friends for years.

Patrick: Yeah, I know they've been friends, but Nikolas lives on an island. Robin is a dedicated doctor and now she's given herself a commute over water in uncertain weather just to avoid the issue of living with me.

Mac: I know it's a little extreme, but Robin's been known to be stubborn.

Patrick: Mac, this isn't a garden-variety disagreement. There's something wrong with Robin she's not telling me and I'm afraid that it's serious.

Nikolas: Robin will be staying with us for a while, so if you would please set up the blue room down the hall for me.

Alfred: I'll have it set up at once, sir. Is your room satisfactory, Mr. Brosnan?

James: Yes, I'm -- I'm enjoying my stay very much, Alfred. Mr. Cassadine has been a wonderful host, thank you.

Alfred: Hmm.

Nikolas: That'll be all.

James: Ah. It's almost like old times at the Metro Court, isn't it? I'm in charge, you two are hostages -- of course, the amenities are vastly, vastly superior.

[James chuckles]

James: But the same rules apply. You cooperate or you die.

Spinelli: If -- if you want to do an identity check, we're going to need some -- like the dude's last name or fingerprint, something.

Milo: A fingerprint -- I can get that.

Dillon: Why don't you hack into the PCPD database, enter Logan�s description, see if anybody with a criminal record pops up.

Spinelli: Okay, that's kind of an extreme long shot, film guy.

Dillon: Well, do you have a better one?

Lulu: What are you doing?

Spinelli: Well, I -- nothing. Nothing.

Lulu: When you say "nothing" and you slam your laptop like that, it usually means that you're researching something you shouldn't be.

Spinelli: The Blond One knows her boyfriend so well.

Dillon: Oh, my God. Reality check -- you're not her boyfriend. We've been over this --

Milo: No, how can you be her boyfriend if I am?

Spinelli: Go ahead.

Lulu: Well --

Spinelli: Tell them. Go ahead.

Lulu: I sort of told my family that Spinelli's my boyfriend.

Dillon: Oh, my God!

Spinelli: I affirm your declaration, Blond One.

Milo: No.

Lulu: It's a figure of speech.

Spinelli: What do you mean, "A figure of speech"?

Dillon: Yeah, yeah, yeah. You know, a figure of speech meaning, like, you're her friend and you're probably a boy and she doesn't have romantic feelings for you.

Spinelli: Film Guy is wrong, isn't he?

Lulu: I care about all of you as friends. Maybe I could feel something more, but I don't right now.

Spinelli: "Maybe, maybe." I mean, you said "maybe" so, I mean, The Jackal still has a chance, right?

Lulu: Well, yes --

Spinelli: Listen, we'll go out, we'll go out, you know, on -- on -- on a date, and you'll see how magical --

Milo: No, no, no, no, I'll take you out. There's this new Italian restaurant you will love.

Dillon: She doesn't like Italian food. She likes American food, and why are you wasting your time with them when you and I -- I know you better than any of these ---

Spinelli: Why are you pressuring the Blond One?

Dillon: "The Blond One, the Blond One"? Try calling her "Lulu," Spinelli.

Milo: Hey, hey, hey -- who cares if you know her better, okay? Lulu needs someone who's kind and -- and thoughtful.

Dillon: Which would disqualify a career mobster who packs heat and bench-presses medium-sized sedans!

Milo: Does not! Does not!

Spinelli: Lulu and I have a connection!

Lulu: Time out! I care about all of you and I have no idea how to choose, so I'm either going to date all of you or none of you.

Sam: A local news crew asked to interview me and I was going to refuse, but I decided it would probably be really good publicity for the Metro Court, so I decided I -- I would do it, and then as soon as they put the camera on and the lights went on, it was so weird. I -- I wasn't nervous anymore. And then I realized I could be really good at this.

Jason: So --

Sam: Oh.

Jason: What, you want to do the TV show?

Sam: Oh, I don't know. Jason, I mean, how many people get an opportunity like this? And Amelia -- she told me that it could really inspire people and be a positive thing, so I decided that -- ah! I can't let my fear hold me back anymore.

Jason: Okay, what -- what is it that you're afraid of?

Sam: I -- oh. Lost of things -- my past. I've done a lot of things that I am not exactly proud of. But I -- I mentioned it to -- to Amelia and she -- she doesn't think it's going to be a problem.

Jason: No, you've never been afraid to take a chance.

Sam: Exactly. Exactly, and that is why I'm going to do this, so I agreed.

Jason: Wow.

Sam: Jason?

Jason: Mm-hmm?

Sam: I'm going to do this.

Jason: I'm -- I'm glad. I'm glad you found something --

Sam: Oh, my gosh.

Jason: Something to get excited about.

Sam: Yeah. This is going to be good.

Jason: It's good for you.

Sam: I can feel it.

Amelia: Sam McCall is on board as the new host. We'll get wardrobe, hair, and makeup to design a look and I want to start scheduling segments. Yes, yes, I got the information on Angela Monroe. There is quite a resemblance to Sam McCall, yes. Look, pull up research on a couple of other names -- Linda Black and Susan Curtis. Those are their married names. See if you can track down pictures.

Jax: I know that you were one of the hostages. I appreciate you coming back to work after everything that's happened.

Marty: I'm just proud to work at this hotel, okay? And if you don't mind me saying --

Jax: Say anything you want, Marty.

Marty: Mrs. Corinthos was the real hero.

Jax: Oh --

Marty: You know, I wish you could've seen her. You would've been proud.

Jax: Well, I'm always proud of Carly. I just wish that she could see that.

Carly: Jason told you.

Sonny: I hate that you slept with Jax.

Carly: The boys are upstairs, and I'm not really up for a fight right now, Sonny --

Sonny: No, I'm not here to fight with you right now. I just want to talk about, you know, certain things -- if that's all right, I mean.

Carly: Well, that's good because, you know, I never promised to be faithful. I said we were over.

Sonny: You don't remember you told me you loved me?

Carly: Sonny, you keep saying things are going to be different and everything is going to change, but it won�t.

Sonny: How do you know?

Carly: It won�t.

Sonny: I mean, we could change.

Carly: No, and I -- you know what? I don't want to take that chance because it's too painful.

Sonny: Have some faith in us.

Sonny: It hurts me, okay -- that you -- you slept with Jax. But I know that you're hurting. I'm just -- I'm asking you to stop, listen to your heart -- come here -- and come back to me.

Carly: Oh.

[Door closes]

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Elizabeth: You're obviously angry. Isn't it time you told me why?

Lulu: Maybe I should.

Patrick: Do you have any idea why Nikolas would need Robin to move in with him?

Robin: Now you want us to fake a romance?

Sam: Don't even think about it. If I see anything connecting Jason to the show, I walk.
