Jax: My brother's missing. All I know is that he left through his hotel room window which has been smashed by a chair. Now, maybe it was him and maybe it wasn’t. Either way, he's in trouble.

Carly: It's the same old story -- he's in trouble, he's on the run.

Jax: And that's why I need to find out what happened.

Carly: Even your mother has given up on him.

Jax: Then I'm all he's got left. Look, I'm not going to turn my back on my brother. If he's in trouble, then I'm going to try to help him.

Carly: We can't keep doing this, you know.

Jax: What? Doing what?

Carly: This isn't us. We just got married, we're supposed to be madly in love, but we're at each other's throats. This has to stop.

Sonny: I don't care how many motions you have to file. I want Jason out on bail.

Kate: I'm not interested in excuses; I need to see him now.

Sonny: I'll call you back, Diane. This barging into my office is starting to become a habit with you, isn't it?

Kate: Do you know what this is?

Sonny: Dead carp?

Kate: It is a rare, ornamental koi fish imported from Japan -- and your sons just harpooned it.

Sam: Amelia, that was great. I mean, I never realized how much fun shooting on location was.

Amelia: Yeah, taking the show on the road was a huge success. You repel down a mountain as easily as you charm a roomful of reporters and sponsors.

Sam: Oh, no, I think it's called "faking it."

Amelia: Well, whatever it is, keep it up. "Everyday Heroes" is a bona fide hit.

Sam: Good. I can't wait to get home and tell Jason all about it.

Jason: Spinelli has nothing to say without his attorney, Ric.

Ric: Spinelli, Jason’s facing a charge of murder and so are you. An accomplice in a case like this faces about 10 to 20 years in prison.

Spinelli: The accusation mystifies the Jackal.

Ric: Okay, let's go over this one more time. You worked for Alcazar setting up his computers, now you're Jason's personal computer geek. I don't think it's going to be very difficult for a judge and a jury to connect the dots, so you got one more chance. You tell me everything you know about Alcazar's murder, or you're both going down for it.

Spinelli: The Jackal waves the white flag. He will tell all.

Judge: Mr. Baldwin is empowered to act as Laura Spencer's legal guardian and to make any and all decisions as to her care and welfare. However, the court admonishes Mr. Baldwin to make adequate provision for Ms. Spencer's family to visit her.

Scott: Your Honor, for the record, Mr. Spencer is not family, correct?

Judge: Mr. Spencer has no legal ties to Laura Spencer and is not entitled to visit her.

Alexis: Your Honor, are you aware that this is a clear violation of Laura Spencer's strict wishes?

Judge: Ms. Spencer's judgment regarding her personal welfare was clearly flawed.

Nikolas: Your Honor, my mother would be outraged by this decision.

Lucky: You don't know what the hell you're talking about. My mom and dad were happy, and I know that she would not want Baldwin in charge of her care.

Bobbie: Don't worry, Alexis will appeal.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Carly: I'm scared, okay? What if Jerry drags you down with him? What if you wind up hurt or in prison or dead?

Jax: Have a little faith in me, okay? I'm not going to mess this up.

Carly: I'm not saying you're going to mess it up.

Jax: Then stop assuming the worst.

Carly: You stop -- look what you're doing. We keep bickering, we can't keep doing this.

Jax: I have bent over backwards to accept your loyalty to Sonny and Jason. Why can't you do the same for -- for me and Jerry?

Carly: What the hell do you think I've been doing for the past few weeks? I have lied to the police and everyone else I know that Jerry isn't Craig. I'm doing everything that I know how under the circumstances, Jax.

Jax: Okay, okay, point taken.

Carly: You can't compare Sonny and Jason to Jerry, because they are polar opposites.

Jax: I -- I agree that we have to stop doing this, okay?

Carly: Thank you.

Jax: And you have to promise me that our first loyalty is always to each other, okay?

Carly: I promise.

Jax: Okay.

Kate: I went to inspect my new meditation pond when I found Michael and Morgan happily engaged in the wanton slaughter of my prized, decorative koi. This particular one happened to be handpicked by my feng shui adviser. Great -- you find this amusing.

Sonny: No -- I'm sorry. I'll have my boys -- I'll tell them to -- they're not allowed to trespass on your property.

Kate: Well, what about my fish?

Sonny: I will take it out of their allowances.

Kate: That's going to take decades. Then again, I have no idea how much money you throw at them every week.

Sonny: You know what? I got to say something. No offense to the carp --

Kate: Koi.

Sonny: When did you switch from eating fish to keeping them as pets?

Kate: Excuse me?

Sonny: Well, you know what? You used to -- you know, your parents are good Catholics, every Friday you used to eat fish. I'm sure now you buy the fish at four-star restaurants, but --

Kate: Okay, let me explain something to you. One does not eat decorative koi. One appreciates them, one meditates on them, on their soothing, tranquil movement through the water.

Sonny: Oh, you watch them swim?

Kate: My lifestyle editor just named koi fish ponds one of the top 10 must-haves in landscaping.

Sonny: Wow. Where do I get one?

Kate: Why am I bothering to explain this to a man whose idea of meditation is shooting at passing helicopters?

Sonny: You're the one who violated the court order.

Kate: Okay, the point is your children destroyed my koi fish.

Sonny: Get yourself another one, send me the bill.

Kate: You know, I thought that it was Carly’s fault about your sons' behavior, but you know what? Now I realize -- your sons take after you.

Amelia: So Jason isn't the least bit bothered by your TV stardom?

Sam: No. Gosh no, not at all. If anything, he's happy that my job makes me happy and he's really supportive of that. And between my plans of having a baby and "Everyday Heroes," I think my life is finally coming together. Gosh, when I think about where I was this time last year, it -- well, my life was aimless then, and I have to admit that it -- it's really great to feel like I've achieved something on my own. It's kind of balanced me, given me a little bit of confidence. I actually feel like I have something to offer -- work and Jason and even a child.

Amelia: So you're still planning to go ahead with your --

Sam: Yeah.

Amelia: Surrogacy?

Sam: Absolutely. My initial tests are this week.

Amelia: Wow. Has Jason changed his mind about fathering a child?

Sam: No. No, not yet, but I'm going to talk to him about it -- again -- see where he's at with it. Either way, I'm still going to go through with it. It's crazy because Jason loves kids and he'd make such a great father. I know that, and I know that he would be supportive of our child, even if it wasn't his biologically, and then he could stop obsessing over Elizabeth’s.

Spinelli: The Jackal apologizes. He does not have the ability like Stone Cold does to defy the D.A. of darkness.

Jason: Spinelli, Spinelli --

Ric: Okay, okay, shh, here we go. You just speak right into the recorder, hmm, anytime.

Spinelli: It -- it all began when Sauron created the ring of power.

Ric: What?

Spinelli: Well, see, Sauron more or less tricked the elves -- also known as eldars -- into creating the rings. Um, but -- and they were given three of the rings, and eight of the other rings were given to the son of --

Ric: Okay, you made the wrong choice, Spinelli.

Spinelli: Look, the D.A. of darkness refused to accept my sincere and honest answer -- I know nothing of the alleged murder of evil Al.

Ric: Yeah, well, we'll see about that once you're charged as an accessory.

Spinelli: See, the ring was flawed. The power of the ring was flawed because darkness feeds on itself -- just as your vendetta against Stone Cold is doomed --

Ric: Okay, here's what I'm going to do, all right? I am going to scour every piece of information that you've saved for Jason in the past year, I'm going to go through every piece of hardware and software that you have. So whatever secrets you've been keeping for Jason are going to soon be in the hands of the law.

Kate: Admit it -- you approve of your sons' wanton slaughter of my innocent fish.

Sonny: Do you wear leather?

Kate: Excuse me?

Sonny: No, do you still eat chicken marsala, cioppino, and all that --

Kate: Okay, wearing animals and -- and eating them has absolutely nothing to do with my meditation pond.

Sonny: What do you want from me? I offered to pay for the carp. I'm going to -- I'm going to tell my kids never to walk on your property again.

Kate: What I want from you is genuine remorse. Instead, look at you -- you're smirking. You think this whole thing is a joke.

Sonny: First, I'm not smirking. You know what your problem is? That you have spent the last how many years having people suck up to you.

Kate: Oh, please.

Sonny: You -- "oh, please"? You don't hear the word "no." Everybody's trying to, you know, make you happy, "let's make Kate Howard happy," the whole deal.

Kate: What is the problem?

Sonny: Well, I'll tell you what the problem is -- Connie Falconeri used to be able to take a joke. Remember last time we went to Jones beach? That big wave came over, your top fell off --

Kate: Okay, no, no, no! Enough with the memories. I swear, you remember everything I ever said or did -- it's making me crazy.

Sonny: Well, you used to make me a little crazy, too.

Kate: Ahem. We were discussing my koi.

Sonny: Yeah.

Kate: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: Mm-hmm.

Kate: Now, you've apologized --

Sonny: Right.

Kate: Just like you apologized for my statue, and you apologized for soaking me with your sprinklers. But we both know this isn't going to be the end of it, is it?

Sonny: We do?

Kate: What are you going to do next, hmm? You going to break my architect's legs, or rear-end the cement truck laying my foundation?

Sonny: Damn, I hadn't thought of that one.

Kate: Well, don't bother, because there is no way in hell I'm going to let you win.

Maxie: Well, that was a close one.

Logan: Coop just came back to get his handbook.

Maxie: I know, but if he overheard me agreeing to have sex with you in exchange for seducing Lulu, he probably wouldn't like that.

Logan: Relax, all right? Our deal is just between us.

Maxie: So you're sure you're not going to start feeling sorry for poor Lulu and her loony mother?

Logan: Lulu loves her mother, okay? It is kind of sad that the woman's incurable.

Maxie: Oh, this is bad -- you are already pulling out the violins. What's next, refusing to get Lulu between the sheets?

Logan: Are you kidding? I'm performing a charity act here, all right? Sex with me is a life-changing experience. A couple hours in the sack with me, Lulu will forget all her problems, everybody wins.

Maxie: Well, it's nice to know you're so humble.

Logan: You'll be finding out soon enough, sweetheart.

Alexis: Laura Spencer was in her right mind when she appointed Nikolas Cassadine her guardian. He also happens to be her son. Mr. Baldwin, on the other hand, has absolutely no familial ties to Ms. Spencer whatsoever.

Judge: Mr. Baldwin poses no threat to Ms. Spencer.

Alexis: Neither does her son. There's not any indication that Nikolas would ever harm her.

Judge: Your client has a dangerously troubled grandmother who's fixated on Ms. Spencer. He's also granted Luke Spencer unlimited access to the patient.

Alexis: That's exactly what Laura wants.

Judge: There's no need to recap the arguments, Ms. Davis, my decision stands.

Alexis: Fine, I'll file an appeal within the hour.

Judge: That's certainly your client's right. But as of this hearing, Mr. Baldwin is Laura Spencer's new guardian. This court is adjourned.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Bailiff: All rise.

Scott: You know, this may come as a shock, but I just want what's best for Laura.

Lulu: My mom would hate this, and she would hate you for everything that you've done.

Luke: Go to hell, you rancid pile of roadkill.

Ric: Okay? Confiscate it.

Spinelli: Uh -- please. Look -- look, there's nothing about Stone Cold on it, okay? Just much personal and private information on the Jackal's --

Ric: Just give it up, or I'm going to have you arrested for obstruction of justice.

Jason: Just stop with the threats, Ric.

Ric: What's the matter? You worried about the incriminating evidence on the machine?

Spinelli: All right. You're forcing the Jackal to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Ric: Good. I'm going to be sending officers to the penthouse to pick up the rest of the computer hardware.

Jason: Not without a warrant.

Ric: Don't worry about it -- it's easy to get. Bring that to my office.

[Door closes]

Jason: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Is there anything incriminating on the computer -- or about me being Jake’s father?

Spinelli: Fear not. Come on, your grasshopper would never bring his real computer here. It was a harmless decoy.

Jason: There -- there was nothing on that computer?

Spinelli: No personal files of any sort. See -- see what I did? I feigned distress to decoy the D.A. of darkness.

Jason: You're very lucky.

Spinelli: Oh, it's pretty clever, too. Give me a little something --

Jason: Hey, what about the equipment at the penthouse?

Spinelli: At the first sign of an intruder, shuts down, locks up. All your information is safe, okay, especially anything that ties you to the innocent one.

Logan: You could be making a big mistake.

Maxie: You mean agreeing to get naked with a loser like you in exchange for getting back at Lulu? Yeah, you're probably right, but I've always been the type of person who sees a cliff and promptly jumps off of it.

Logan: Then why the safe, reliable type like Coop?

Maxie: Coop's a good guy.

Logan: That's exactly the problem.

Maxie: How would you know that?

Logan: It's written all over your face, sweetheart. You throw yourself at these, you know, good-looking, kindhearted guys like Coop, but they cannot rock your world like I can.

Maxie: Oh, so what I really need is a reckless jerk who picks fights for no reason, like you?

Logan: You're already looking forward to it, aren't you?

Maxie: Oh, Logan -- you're the one who's in for a treat. I'm much better in bed than Lulu -- I mean, she's practically a virgin. With the exception of seducing Dillon, she's had zero experience with men.

Logan: Lulu seduced Dillon?

Maxie: No, she didn't seduce him, she tricked him.

Logan: Fill me in on that.

Maxie: What, and ruin your impression of Lulu as the innocent little girl next door?

Logan: Hey, I just want to know what I'm dealing with here, all right?

Scott: Hey, Mike.

Mike: Hey.

Scott: Let me have a cup of coffee.

Mike: Here or to go?

Scott: Make it to go. I've got some business with Laura, now that I'm her guardian.

Logan: Stealing a helpless woman from her family -- nice move, Baldwin.

Nikolas: I'm really sorry, Luke.

Luke: Hey -- don't be sorry, Nikolas, you did everything you could.

Emily: Yeah, Luke's right. It's not your fault.

Lucky: I know it's my job to uphold the law, but the law failed Mom today.

Lulu: No, Scott failed Mom. I can't believe the judge bought his pack of lies.

Luke: Well, observe how easily the system's manipulated.

Tracy: I'll be home if you need me.

Luke: Thank you, babe.

Bobbie: Luke, I know how awful this is for you, but it's going to be fine. Laura is in kind of a twilight.

Luke: Well, I appreciate that, Barbara. But the fact remains, she's at the mercy of a reptile. But, Nik, I really want to say this to you again. You did everything you could, you -- you tried your best to take care of your mother's wishes. She would be very proud of you.

Nikolas: Thank you. Thank you.

Alexis: I am so sorry. This is definitely an exercise in frustration.

Nikolas: Yeah, I believe that goes without saying.

Alexis: You know that I'm going to appeal this? All right, what I need right now from all of you is to give the court some information so they can set up visitation privileges. I promise you, this case is not over.

Luke: Okay. Thank you all. Thank you very much. See you all later.

Lucky: Okay.

Luke: You okay?

Lulu: No.

Luke: Me, neither.

Sam: Okay, I -- um -- I've decided I -- I want to start in vitro as soon as possible.

Kelly: Okay, one step at a time, Sam.

Sam: Okay.

Kelly: First, we need to discuss your test results.

Sam: Was there a problem? I mean, are my eggs viable?

Kelly: The tests were inconclusive.

Sam: Okay, what does that mean? Am I going to be able to have kids on my own or not?

Ric: Sam? Well, I'm surprised to see you here -- although, I have to admire your restraint.

Sam: What does that mean, Ric?

Ric: Well, you're a celebrity now, and Jason's been arrested for murder. You're wise to stay away.

Spinelli: The Jackal wishes there was more he could do. Maybe you can, you know, allow me to get you special privileges in here?

Jason: I already told you that I don't want you trying to get me out of here, okay?

Spinelli: No, no, no, you misunderstand. See -- see, the pcpd mainframe is like an open book to the Jackal, so I can get you catered meals --

Jason: Okay, see, you're misunderstanding me, obviously. I want you to go home and do nothing. Sonny's going to try to get me out of here. I don't want Ric to find more reasons to arrest you. You do not want to go to jail. Go home and just stay quiet, okay?

Spinelli: Stone Cold will be obeyed.

Officer: One visitor at a time.

Spinelli: The Jackal will leave you in the fair hands of the maternal one. Ahem.

Jason: You shouldn't -- you shouldn't have come.

Elizabeth: I had to. If there's anything I can do to help, please let me.

Officer: Spencer, back to see your wife?

Lucky: What do you mean?

Officer: I just showed her into interrogation one to visit with Morgan.

Jason: Thank you, but there's -- there's nothing you can do.

Elizabeth: I know you don't like to ask for help, but from what Lucky tells me, you're in serious trouble.

Sonny: Since when are we in competition?

Kate: You have been trying to run me off the property since the moment I arrived.

Sonny: You want to move in next door, that's your problem, not mine.

Kate: Okay, so is that why you shot out my irreplaceable marble centaur from the sky?

Sonny: You were in violation of the injunction against flying helicopters over my property.

Kate: The sole purpose of that document was to harass me.

Sonny: You -- you can't live without helicopters?

Kate: No, as a matter of fact. They are necessary for my commute. If you know a faster way to Manhattan, I'm all ears.

Sonny: Well, that early chopper woke up my kids in the morning.

Kate: Oh, what a tragedy -- and I'm sure you let them sleep in as late as possible because, clearly, you spoil Michael and Morgan rotten. They are out of control and overindulged --

Carly: You need to stop right there.

Carly: If she insults my boys again, I'm going to hit her.

Kate: Carly? Your children are poorly supervised.

Carly: You're going to stand there and let her insult our children -- and us?

Sonny: Well, in all fairness, she kind of has a right to --

Kate: Yeah, your children trespassed on my property -- again -- and harpooned a prized, decorative koi in my meditation pond.

Carly: Bull. You probably killed your own damn fish so you could come over here, blame my kids, and hang out with Sonny.

Kate: I'm not going to dignify that with a response.

Carly: Every time I turn around, you're here coming on to Sonny. Do you think you're being subtle, because you're not.

Kate: Wow -- so you can take the girl out of the trailer park, but you can't take the trailer park out of the girl.

Carly: That's it, I'm so sick --

Sonny: Okay, you know what? Uh-uh-uh-- I don't want to break up a fight here, so -- you know, she can do some serious damage, so you might want to --

Carly: Fast.

Kate: Oh, it would suit me just fine if I never saw you or Carly or your children ever again.

Carly: What are you doing? She's a wack job!

Sonny: She's upset about her fish.

Carly: Yeah, whatever. I'm not going to leave Michael or Morgan anywhere near that woman. I'm going to your house and taking my boys back to my house today.

Sonny: You can take the boys, but they still need to be punished for killing the fish.

Carly: "Punish them"? I am going to reward them.

[Door slams]

Logan: You think the judge might mind if he knew that you killed Rick Webber?

Scott: No proof there, pal.

Logan: How about I make it public anyway? Laura Spencer went crazy because she thought she killed her stepfather, and you're the coward that hid behind it. How about that for a plan, Baldwin? You think there's really any chance at all that you'll still have guardianship of Laura once the dust settles?

Scott: Now, you listen to me, you two-bit con man, I got a badge. You keep mouthing off, and you will go to Sing Sing.

Logan: I am touched by your sense of regret.

Scott: What happened in the attic is none of your business.

Logan: You'll never stop covering, will you? No chance in hell you might actually feel bad about victimizing an innocent woman that you pretended to love.

Scott: I never pretended! I did, and I still do.

Logan: I hope Lulu's dad snaps that guy's neck.

Maxie: Why do you care?

[Logan sighs]

Lulu: It's just -- it's so unfair. The judge thinks Scott is -- is kind and loving towards mom. He has no idea what a creep Scott is, and even then, how could he deliberately go against mom's wishes?

Luke: It doesn't make sense, I know.

Lulu: No, dad, it's flat-out wrong!

Luke: Well, so are a lot of things, Lulu, but they still happen. You have two choices here -- you either fold or you try to bluff your way through.

Lulu: Well, maybe that's my problem -- I'm a lousy poker player.

Luke: Well, you still got time to learn.

Lulu: Mom made her own choices, and she wanted to be with you forever. So, no matter what happened today or all those years ago, that's what really counts.

Luke: Thank you. That means a lot to me.

Lulu: Yeah, and Bobbie’s right -- you know, Mom -- she's probably going to be fine. I -- Scott's not going to hurt her or anything. I just -- I don't like that he has control over her.

Luke: That rodent has never one-upped me for long. Don't you worry, little girl, he's not going to get away with this.

Sam: Jason's in jail?

Ric: Yeah, he was arrested yesterday for the murder of Lorenzo Alcazar. You didn't know?

Sam: I -- I was out of town.

Ric: And he didn't get word to you? Yeah, he's probably just trying to protect your career.

Sam: You probably set up the arrest anyway.

Ric: Oh, there was evidence.

Sam: Which you probably planted.

Ric: No, sorry to disappoint you. It's real and it's conclusive. Jason's going to be tried, found guilty, and go to prison.

Sam: I -- um -- I've got to go see Jason.

Kelly: Yeah, uh, I understand. And don't worry, we can run another round of tests to see if your eggs are viable.

Sam: Yeah, okay, I'm -- I'm sorry. Right now, all I can think about is Jason.

Jason: I don't want you to worry.

Elizabeth: Lucky says the police have hard evidence this time?

Jason: Whatever happens, I'm counting on you to be a great mom and -- and give Jake the best life you can. He's barely a month old and I'm already behind bars again. You know, these are the times that I really feel like I made the right decision. Because I don't want this -- I don't -- I don't want this touching his life.

Elizabeth: Well, it won't, because our son is safe and loved because of you.

Lucky: What are you doing here?

Alan: Sorry about what happened in court today.

Tracy: Not as sorry as I am.

Alan: Well, you had to know it was coming.

Tracy: You know what, Alan? It is annoying enough having you haunt me. I don't need you beating me over the head with the obvious.

Alan: A little touchy, are we?

Tracy: Luke raped Laura, and it is sad and horrifying, and it speaks volumes for why they never should've been together.

Alan: They had a lot of happy years together.

Tracy: You know what? I'm beginning to think that all of that legendary love was just Luke's guilt.

Alan: Well, you may believe that, Tracy, or you just want to believe it, but I take my hat off to you -- you never pointed it out to Luke.

Tracy: It's because it's not a hill I want to die on. Well, when do you leave?

Luke: Am I going somewhere?

Tracy: Don't! We both know what you have planned.

Amelia: Okay, so you're saying Sam was sleeping with this Nico Petrelli and helping him steal cars and sell off the parts? Good work, Wes. The file on Sam grows thicker by the week. You know, I think we could even do a carjacking segment on this -- that would be great. Later.

Sonny: Is my memory slipping, or did you tell my guard that I gave you permission to wait for me?

Amelia: Was I wrong?

Sonny: Depends on what you're waiting for.

Amelia: Well, no, our road trip was hugely successful. The ratings for "Everyday Heroes" keep climbing.

Sonny: Congratulations.

Amelia: Well, thank you. A couple days of wall-to-wall stress, but it was worth it -- only one problem.

Sonny: What's that?

Amelia: Well, I just have all this pent-up energy and I don't know what to do with it.

Sonny: I thought you told Kate Howard that you wouldn't be caught dead in my office.

Amelia: Are you expecting Kate Howard?

Sonny: No.

Amelia: Then I won't tell if you won’t.

Kate: No, Clarice, I'm not going to wait for my surviving koi to reproduce. Call Japan and have six more flown out first class -- and send the bill to my neighbor. There he is! It's so lovely to see you, Jax.

Jax: Kate Howard. I was really honored to hear that you're staying at our hotel.

Kate: "Our"?

Jax: My new wife and I.

Kate: Yes, I heard that you remarried.

Jax: I haven't had a chance to tell Carly that you're a guest here. She's had some family difficulties, but she'll be thrilled to know that the editor in chief of "Couture" magazine is staying at the Metro Court.

Kate: Somehow I doubt that.

Jax: Really?

Kate: Uh -- yeah. Carly and I -- this is actually why I asked to see you. Um -- we've had some, uh, disagreements, and I was actually hoping that you would smooth things over.

Jax: Well, that's unfortunate, isn't it?

Kate: Yeah. Now, I know that we don't really know each other that well, and, of course, I've always enjoyed running into you at whatever function we happen to be at. And there was that one slightly awkward date that Georgio set us up on -- and you couldn't have been more delightful.

Jax: Likewise I'm sure.

Kate: But this is why I'm actually dismayed that Carly and I just -- I'm trying to put it tactfully. Um -- she's hated me on sight, and I'm rapidly catching up to her.

Jax: Well, I am really sorry to hear that, but I'm -- I'm not going to divorce Carly.

Kate: No, I wouldn't dream of asking you to. No, I'm simply hoping that you could work out a truce -- before I have to take her to court.

Elizabeth: I came to see Jason.

Lucky: Come here. Elizabeth, you were there when I arrested him. You know the charges. Why else do you need to see him again?

Elizabeth: Because he's my friend and I just wanted to make sure he was okay?

Lucky: Obviously, he's okay, all right, so there's no reason for you to stay.

Jason: Thanks for stopping by. I'm fine.

Elizabeth: Okay. Take care.

Lucky: Elizabeth --

Elizabeth: Don't ever treat me like that again.

Maxie: There goes Lulu. She looks really bummed.

Logan: Oh, it's going to be a walk in the park.

Maxie: Drop the cocky overconfidence; it's going to turn her off.

Logan: Relax, all right? Let the master do his work. Hey. How you feeling?

Lulu: Don't ask.

Logan: I was here at Kelly’s when Scott Baldwin came in bragging about him being the guardian of your mother. I wanted to deck the bastard, but I remembered you telling me not to interfere with your business.

Lulu: I wish you had.

[Logan sighs]

Logan: I could go chase him down if you want, put one right through his rib cage, yell something corny out like "this is for -- this is for Lulu"?

Lulu: No, it'd just get you thrown in jail.

Logan: Hey, but at least I'd get a free meal, though, right?

Lulu: Stop trying to make me laugh.

Logan: I'm sorry, I just -- I don't know what else to do. You got every right to feel like hell.

Lulu: It was bad enough that my mom recovered for only a few weeks to then slip away again, but the only silver lining is that we had all been around -- my dad, me, Nikolas, Lucky -- taking care of her, watching over her, but now we don't even have that. It's everything my mom would've hated, and there's nothing I can do about it.

Luke: Baldwin has forced my hand.

Tracy: So you will be kidnapping Laura?

Luke: I thought you were onboard with this.

Alan: Oh -- she may have come to her senses.

Tracy: I told you two weeks ago that I would help you. I have not changed my mind.

Luke: Good, because I need you.

Tracy: Not quite the way I would like to be needed, but a deal is a deal.

Luke: Thank you, wife.

Alan: You may want to rethink this, Tracy. Luke will be running forever if he can keep his precious Laura out of the hands of Scotty Baldwin.

Luke: So I'm going to find out where the court has put her, and then I need you to cover while I get her out of there.

Tracy: I won't ask where you're taking her.

Luke: Well, good, because -- well, I mean, you could ask, but I -- I really don't have an answer right now, I haven't worked out all the details.

Tracy: And how long will you be gone?

Luke: It's hard to tell. I'll be back, Spanky.

Tracy: Will you really? Or is that just one of those horrifying platitudes like, um, "it's not you, it's me" or "I feel your pain"?

Luke: Have you ever known me to spew clichés?

Tracy: No.

Luke: You are my wife. I'm married to you because I can't imagine a better partner in this life. I give you my word; I will always come back to you.

Lucky: Elizabeth, stop. Elizabeth, please, we need to settle this. I don't want us taking this home to the kids.

Elizabeth: I'm not the one with the problem, Lucky. I'm not going to apologize for visiting a friend.

Lucky: It's more than that and you know it.

Elizabeth: Yeah, I happen to feel bad that Jason got arrested, and I'm really surprised you can't dig up an ounce of compassion for him.

Lucky: Okay, my family was in the courthouse today, and you said you couldn't come because you were too busy taking care of the boys.

Elizabeth: Right -- and then my grandmother got off of work early.

Lucky: That's not the point. Scott Baldwin was just named the legal guardian of my mother, and you were too busy off visiting your friend -- the one charged with first-degree murder.

Sam: Can I speak to Jason alone for a minute, please?

Officer: He's supposed to go back to his cell.

Sam: Please? Come on, he's my fiancé. I just found out he was here.

Officer: Okay, but only because my wife and I love your show.

Sam: Thank you.

[Door closes]

Sam: Jason, why did I have to find out from Ric Lansing that you had been arrested? Why didn't you tell me?

Kate: Hmm, the property is gorgeous. It looks right out onto the lake, and the landscaping, if it's finished -- ever finished -- will go all the way down to the water.

Jax: That sounds really beautiful.

Kate: Yeah.

Jax: So what's the problem with Carly?

Kate: Well, actually, the difficulty started with her husband -- ex-husband Sonny.

Jax: Mm-hmm. Yeah.

Kate: We had a few disagreements and we managed to compromise -- until his and her children started to trespass and commit mayhem -- up to and including harpooning my decorative koi.

Jax: Oh. Ooh. Yeah, that's not good.

Kate: Uh-uh.

Jax: But you didn't, um, say anything to Carly, like, unflattering about the -- the boys, did you? Because she's --

Kate: Ye-- well, yeah.

Jax: You did?

Kate: I did. I might've mentioned that they were out-of-control brats.

Jax: Ooh.

[Kate chuckles]

Jax: Well, that makes my hackles rise, and I'm just the stepfather. You know, ordinarily, the -- the customer would always be right, especially when she can break or make the hotel that I own? But Carly’s children, Michael and Morgan, they're -- they're really great, and her and I will defend them to the death.

Kate: I am just simply asking that they're kept off my property.

Jax: Okay. You know what? I'm sure that can be arranged.

Kate: Thank you, Jax.

Jax: You're welcome.

Kate: Thank you for hearing me out, and thank you for being a gentleman. I know that children are a loaded subject.

[Kate chuckles]

Kate: And, by the way, just for the record, I would never let my personal difficulties with Carly influence my opinion of the hotel. You've done a wonderful job.

Jax: Oh. Thank you.

Kate: No, the service is first-rate, the staff is accommodating without being intrusive, and the room service is excellent. I have had egg-white omelets in all the five-star restaurants --

Carly: I don't think so.

Jax: Carly.

Kate: Excuse me?

Carly: You can follow Sonny all over town, but you stay the hell away from my husband.

Sonny: Feeling a little more relaxed?

Amelia: Hmm -- better than a day at the spa.

Sonny: I hope so. Feel free to come by any time you -- need to release some tension.

Amelia: Oh, now that you mention it, this week's production is going to be quite stressful. Oh, I got that.

Sonny: No, you don’t. Why are you collecting information on Sam McCall?

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Jax: I was just explaining that we would come up with a workable solution.

Carly: I have one -- leave.

Amelia: Sam doesn't know it, but we have a prior connection -- she murdered my father.

Jason: There's nothing you could do.

Sam: I could've been your moral support, unless you're getting it somewhere else?
