Tracy: You really are a vile excuse for a human being.
Scott: Have you ever heard the expression "you catch more flies with honey"?
Tracy: Doesn't apply to snakes.
Scott: Listen to me, Tracy, if you want me to drop these charges against you, you better stop insulting me and tell me where Luke took Laura.
Tracy: You know, I don't like Laura very much, but I would never willingly subject her to the likes of you.
Scott: Better me than the guy that raped her. Luke has no respect for Laura, otherwise he wouldn't have dragged her out of the hospital and taken her on the lam!
Tracy: You have been calling Luke a deadbeat for years because you think he can't be bothered to take care of his wife and his children. But all along, you were the one avoiding your responsibilities, and I have proof.
Scott: Oh --
Tracy: So, either you drop the charges against me and have the doctors release me immediately, or the whole world is going to find out about your long-lost -- check that -- your long-abandoned son.
Lulu: You know Scott Baldwin is your father, don't you? That's why you helped Maxie blackmail him. And it wasn't about the money; it was about getting even with him for bailing on you and your mom.
Jason: You okay?
Carly: Put your shirt on.
Jason: What -- hold on, what are you talking about?
Carly: Put your shirt on now! Okay? I'm a married woman. I'm married. I'm married. I'm married. I am married.
Jerry: Ah. For future reference, I'm not very fond of being held up at gunpoint.
Sonny: Shut up! You're not at the Metro Court right now, Mr. Craig, you're in my house. Your games won't fly with me here.
Jerry: If you're tempted to kill me, might I remind you that --
Sonny: I know -- that you have all the evidence against, you know, Emily Quartermaine, but it doesn't change one simple fact. You come anywhere near my family again, I will rip your heart out!
Jerry: Hello. Oh, dear, it's terribly inconvenient -- I mean, a beautiful woman waltzes right in while you're threatening to kill me. I mean, while I'm happy for the reprieve -- no matter how brief -- the lovely Ms. Howard didn't seem too thrilled to see who you really are.
Tracy: My private investigator was beyond thorough. In here are phone records, credit card receipts, even a lease agreement -- all of which places you in Hollingsbeck, Texas, in 1984.
Scott: Those records are about as real as your brother's will, which you forged. And don't even try and deny that, Tracy. I know how -- how Spencer's mind works. He saw this opportunity to cash in on your brother's death and he took it, and he used you to do it -- just like he used you to kidnap Laura.
Tracy: Luke has some flaws. However, to the best of my knowledge, he has never walked out on a pregnant woman. And the pregnant woman you walked out on, by the way -- her name was, um, Jaclyn -- Jaclyn Hayes.
Scott: How many times has Luke taken off in your marriage without so much as a goodbye? You know why? Because he can't be tied down to a wife, to kids, to a job! He is truly a deadbeat, where me, on the other hand -- I've embraced fatherhood all my life. You know, when I found out that Karen was my daughter, my biggest regret was I didn't find out earlier. And when she was taken from me in that car accident, a piece of me was taken. But thank God, you know, I got Serena. She is the apple of my eye, Tracy.
Tracy: Mm-hmm. And the heir to a sizable fortune, which goes a long way to explaining your devotion.
Scott: Don't you ever question my love for Serena, never!
Tracy: Okay, well, if you love being a pop so much, why'd you turn your back on your only son?
Scott: This blackmail is not going to work. I do not have a son!
Lulu: Does Scott even know about you?
Logan: Baldwin knew my mother was pregnant. That didn't stop him from skipping town on us.
Lulu: So you -- you haven't told him that you're his son?
Logan: What difference would that make? Baldwin knows he's got a kid walking around the world somewhere. But the loser never bothered to pick up the phone, or take two seconds to -- to just answer one of my mother's letters. The bottom line is he -- he just didn't want the hassle, so he pretended like we didn't exist. What I can't figure out is how did -- how did you put this together?
Lulu: Scott is threatening to charge my stepmother with kidnapping charges unless she, um, tells him where my mom is. So -- so she hired a private investigator to get some dirt on him and -- and use it as leverage. So that's what --
Logan: You want me to be the leverage? That's what this is about? You can for-- you can forget that.
Lulu: Logan, Logan, wait, wait, wait --
Spinelli: Halt, simian! What -- what have you done to upset the fair Lulu?
Lulu: He didn't do anything. I was just an insensitive jerk and I am sorry.
Robin: Is that Mr. Halstead's chart?
Robin: Well, you aren't his doctor, so you really shouldn't be looking at his labs.
Patrick: Robin, this is petty.
Robin: Noah is going to perform the surgery. To second-guess him or me at this point is just plain spiteful.
Patrick: You gave the case to my father because I dared to call you on how you hate to be wrong.
Patrick: Okay. So, fine, I was teasing you. There was a grain of truth to it, but you completely overreacted. Just relax and learn to take a joke.
Robin: Maybe you should learn to respect your fellow surgeons, including Noah. Noah knows exactly how to treat this patient. You know what the truth is? I should've asked him to consult in the first place.
Patrick: Well, then why didn't you?
Robin: I don't know -- maybe because you and I are involved, because you're the first neurosurgeon that I think of? But mostly because I want to avoid stupid, pointless arguments like this one. I mean, you are all about competing with your father. The second he says something, you completely contradict him. I don't know if it's because you're trying to punish him for years of drinking, or if because, deep down, maybe you're scared that he's a better surgeon than you are. Either way, I don't care, because it's unprofessional. And I avoid referring my patients to him out of loyalty to you, and that's ridiculous, so I'm stopping it, it's over.
Patrick: Robin --
Robin: My patients deserve better.
Patrick: You gave that case to my father to get back at me. Now, that's unprofessional. That fact that you're standing there and -- and not admitting it just proves my point, what I said this morning -- you cannot admit when you are wrong.
Sonny: You made a serious miscalculation going anywhere near my kids, Mr. Craig.
Jerry: Well, you see, Michael and Morgan happen to be very fond of their new uncle -- that would be, Jerry Jacks. James Craig is gone --
Jerry: Never to return. Ugh!
Sonny: I don't like playing games, Mr. Craig.
Jerry: Well, you see --
Jerry: What I meant was I went to a great deal of trouble to establish a truce of some sort.
Sonny: You probably think now that Jax's gone, you can make your next move, am I right?
Jerry: Well, actually, I sent Jax away because I didn't want him to be caught in the middle. Because, like it or not, you and I are practically family.
Carly: I love Jax. I love Jax. I love Jax, I love Jax.
Jason: I -- I know that, Carly.
Carly: Okay, you know, I made vows, I did. We're just friends, that's all. We're -- we're friends.
Jason: What are you talking about?
Carly: What happened to your neck?
Jason: What -- what do you mean?
Carly: You had such a nice neck.
Jason: What's wrong with my neck?
Carly: You work out too much. Too many muscles -- they are all over the arms, standing there in front of the steam -- why did I get married?
Jason: You're not even making any sense right now, okay?
Carly: It's all your fault.
Jason: You're the one who got us locked in here.
Carly: You're the one who took off your shirt! You should know better, you know me!
Jason: Okay, could you just focus, all right? We need to get that door open.
Carly: The maintenance people will be down here sooner or later.
Jason: I can't be down here anymore; I need to get out of here!
Carly: Why are you in such a hurry to get out of here?
Jason: Jake Spencer was kidnapped.
Carly: I know that. The whole town is looking for him, there's nothing more you can do.
Jason: Well, I'm going to have to try to do something.
Carly: Why are you so concerned about someone else's kid?
Sam: Maureen is grieving for the -- the baby she lost in that fire. I'm not going to force her to relive that night on television.
Amelia: We already taped the interview; all I need is a signed release to air it.
Sam: Why can't you accept the fact that she changed her mind?
Amelia: Because the network wants us to air the episode that they paid us to make?
Sam: You have no idea what kind of pain that woman is feeling, how -- how it feels to wake up in the morning and know that you will never see your child again.
Amelia: No, but you do, which is why you're going to be the one that makes the call. Maureen trusts you. If anyone can convince her to sign the release, it's you.
Sam: No, Maureen trusts me because she knew I wouldn't exploit her pain, and I am not going to start now!
Amelia: You already did the interview with Maureen. Why are you suddenly backing out now?
Sam: Maureen already feels guilty enough from not being able to save her daughter. Does she really need other people judging her?
Amelia: It's not about blame, Sam, it's about preventing any more senseless tragedies.
Sam: Are you serious? You don't give a damn about anything but the ratings here because you are a cold, heartless bitch!
Amelia: I'm not the one who seduced and marred five men just to rob them blind.
Elizabeth: I'm sorry to interrupt.
Amelia: Detective Spencer, how can I help you?
Elizabeth: Lucky and I have decided to make an appeal to the kidnapper and we were hoping we could do it on your show.
Spinelli: Please tell me that what just happened in the hallway was a figment of my imagination, or that my alarmingly low blood sugar caused my ears to deceive me, because there was no way that the simian one deserves an apology from you. In fact, he is so far beneath you on the evolutionary scale that you guys aren't even in the same species.
Lulu: Okay, I appreciate that, but I don't need to be protected. Logan didn't do anything wrong, I should've been more sensitive.
Spinelli: Okay, I guess it would be dismaying to learn that the earthworm, Baldwin, is anyone's parental unit. But in the case of the unworthy one, the crabby apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.
Logan: You know what? I've had just about enough of your crap.
Lulu: Stop it, stop it, both of you. That was uncalled for. Yes, Logan has an attitude, but even at his worst, he is nothing like his father. Scott Baldwin killed Rick Webber and let my mom take the blame. He drove her to a breakdown, and has filed for custody so that my dad will never see her again. Scott Baldwin is a liar and a coward, so to say Logan is anything like his father is just cruel.
Logan: Baldwin's not my father. He's just some guy who got my mother pregnant and bailed.
Lulu: Yes, and you've been taking it out on the world ever since. How is that working out for you? That's what I thought. So the way that I see it is you have two choices, okay? You can either let the anger continue to build up inside of you, or you can do something about it. So what's it going to be?
Robin: Can I speak to you in the lounge?
Patrick: I'm busy at the moment.
Robin: We are going to have this fight, whether it's right here where Dr. Ford can walk in and reprimand us, or if a patient gets off the elevator and sees two doctors fighting like a couple of high school kids. Or we can at least try and be professional and take it to the lounge.
Patrick: Look, before you start reprimanding me, let me just tell you it doesn't matter what you say, I am not changing my position.
Patrick: I am a better doctor than my father. I haven't spent 15 years pickling my brain with alcohol, and I'm not making up for a series of botched surgeries.
Robin: Of course you are. You are constantly trying to prove that you are not going to fail the way that Noah did. That's why you can recite the details of every surgery your father screwed up -- the patients, the conditions, the alleged error in judgment.
Robin: You know who was assisting, you know exactly what part of the procedure Noah had to stop. You know everything about it.
Patrick: It was always the same problem, Robin -- he was too drunk to finish the procedure. The brilliant Dr. Noah Drake crashed and burned, and he damned near took my career down with him.
Robin: Okay, fighter pilots crash and burn, surgeons operate -- sometimes I don't think you know the difference.
Patrick: Wow. So now I'm incompetent?
Robin: No, you just take risks when you don't need to just to prove that you're the best.
Patrick: Wow. I had no idea much you resented me.
Robin: I love you -- enough to tell you when I think you're out of line.
Lucky: Why don't you want to help us find our son?
Sam: Appearing on this show isn't going to help.
Elizabeth: How can you say that? "Everyday Heroes" has millions of viewers. It only takes one person to recognize Jake to bring him home!
Amelia: Elizabeth is right. The most important thing is getting Jake's picture out there. I'll tell you what -- I can give you two minutes at the top and bottom of this week's show to air your appeal.
Lucky: That would be great. We really appreciate anything you can do.
Elizabeth: Thank you.
Amelia: You know, I can run it as a lead-in, book a few experts to talk about how parents can keep their kids safe. We can devote the entire hour to Jake's kidnapping. Maybe it'll help generate some new leads.
Sam: Are you kidding me? You don't care, you don't want to help them find Jake.
Amelia: I'm not the one refusing to have them on the show.
Sam: No, Amelia is using you. She wants to milk your pain and your suffering to drive up the ratings.
Elizabeth: If it brings Jake home, I don't really care.
Jason: The longer Jake is missing, the worse the chances get that he'll ever be found.
Carly: What are you going to do?
Jason: Whatever I can do. I need to do something. I know that you don't like Elizabeth, but I have to help somehow, Carly.
Carly: No, wait a second. Lucky is my cousin, okay, and his son's missing, so everything that can be done should be.
Carly: You just got out on bail. If you go out there looking for Jake, it's going to hurt your case, and maybe you don't care, but I do. All right, you're the one person in my life that can calm me down and tell me to breathe. You mean everything to me, and -- and you're more than my best friend.
Man: What are you two doing in here?
Carly: Uh -- we were down here checking on some pipes and -- um -- everything's fine. Everything's okay.
Man: I guess it's a good thing I came down here when I did.
Carly: Yes, it is, yeah.
Jason: You going to be okay?
Carly: Yeah, I'm good. I'm okay.
Sonny: Save your speech! I already heard it from Jax -- our families are linked together. How Emily Quartermaine's going to face espionage charges if you wind up dead. You should've run when you had the chance, Mr. Craig!
Jerry: Well, I would've if it weren't for my brother. You, of all people, should understand that complicated dynamic knowing the type of brother that you have. You see, Jax is the only reason I went to all this trouble. He has a life here, one that I want to be a part of.
Sonny: You stay the hell away form my family.
Jerry: I have no intention of hurting Carly or your sons -- or anyone else, for that matter. The only reason for me coming forward as Jerry Jacks is to let James Craig and his high crimes die a natural death. I'm not foolish enough to think that you wouldn't kill me, given the adequate provocation.
Sonny: You're still breathing, aren't you? Consider me provoked.
Scott: Well, Tracy, you certainly have done your research.
Tracy: Isn't it amazing what you can dig up with a little incentive and a whole lot of money?
Scott: Well, you know what? You wasted a whole lot of money and a lot of time. Because all this proves is that I was in Hollingsbeck, Texas, in the 1980s. I certainly would know if I had fathered a son down there.
Tracy: You do, which is why you're working so hard to cover your butt.
Scott: I -- I do not have a son!
Tracy: Okay, well, you can tell that to the press, and while you're at it, I'm sure they'll be amused to find out that you left him in a trailer park in Hollingsbeck, Texas.
Scott: Okay, okay, okay, enough of this nonsense here. Now, if you want to spend your golden years playing checkers and eating chipped beef on toast in cellblock C, you better tell me where Luke took Laura!
Tracy: I have no idea.
Scott: Now, let me remind you again -- I am your only way out of this nut house, Tracy!
Tracy: And I am your only way of keeping your job. So, either you drop the charges against me, or you're going to be chasing ambulances again.
Scott: Ah -- come on. Who is going to believe the ramblings of some crazy woman?
Lulu: I will.
Scott: What's he doing here? Wait a second, is -- is that the loser that you hired to impersonate my son?
Robin: Every time you go into the O.R., you're proving something about yourself and your father. And so far, it's worked in your favor, it's driven you to excel. But maybe it is time to stop competing with Noah and just admit that he is also an excellent surgeon with something to contribute.
Patrick: Look, Robin, my father and I argue, that's a given. Some of it is emotional baggage, and some of it is a difference in professional opinion. The point is you gave the case to my father in part to get back at me. Now, tell me the truth, did you even call Marucci or Lawrence? Or did you get so mad that I walked away that that's why you gave the case to my dad -- to get back at me?
Robin: The absolute truth --
Robin: I was pissed when you walked away, and I thought to myself, you know what? I should just give this patient to Noah. It's his area of expertise anyway. But then I thought, no, it would make you mad. So I picked up the phone and called Marucci. And then I stopped myself, because I thought, you know what? Noah is the best surgeon for this procedure. I knew that it would make you mad; I knew that we would have this fight, and, yes, I could've avoided it. But that's not the kind of relationship I want to have, where I go against my better judgment just to keep the peace? So, yeah, I guess I was proving something -- that you and I can completely disagree and still love each other.
Kate: Cancel the painters and the plumber for tomorrow, and call the contractor, tell him his services will no longer be needed.
Clarice: But the house isn't even close to being finished.
Kate: Clarice, will you just take care of it? Renovations are the least of my worries at the moment.
Carly: Where are my boys?
Kate: I don't see how that's any of my concern.
Carly: You called me and said there was an emergency, my boys have been with Sonny all day, I'm sure you have something else to blame on them. Where are they?
Kate: I called because I thought you might want to stop Sonny before he murders your brother-in-law.
Jason: Hey. You got to put more guards on Carly and the boys. Jerry's back in town.
Sonny: I already saw him.
Jason: And, what, is he still alive?
Sonny: Kate Howard showed up when I was letting Jerry know -- in graphic terms -- what I'd do to him if he came anywhere near my children.
Jason: Okay, wait a minute; do you think she's going to say anything?
Sonny: I don't think so, but you know what? If Jerry turns up dead, then we might have a problem with Kate Howard. When did you find out that Jerry was back?
Jason: Carly called me, Jerry showed up at the house.
Sonny: Did he threaten her?
Jason: You know what? I don't -- I don't think so. She's mostly mad because Jerry tricked Jax into leaving town.
Sonny: Okay, she had Leticia bring the kids by the house. I don't like her staying at that house by herself. I'm going to have our people on her 24/7.
Jason: I would take care of that myself, but I got to look for Jake.
Sonny: Where you going to start?
Jason: With Sam.
Elizabeth: I will do anything to find my son, and if that means letting your producer use my grief to get better ratings, then fine, whatever. The important thing is finding Jake.
Sam: I am sick of Amelia using other people's pain and suffering to exploit the show. That's not what I'm signed up for.
Elizabeth: But this isn't about you!
Amelia: Would you give me and Sam a minute? There are a few things we need to discuss.
Sam: No, there is nothing I have to say to you!
Elizabeth: If -- if you have a problem with the way she handles things, then deal with it later. My son is missing, and every second counts.
Lucky: Sam, we don't have one solid lead yet.
Sam: Oh --
Elizabeth: We -- we just need to do something to generate more interest. Why won't you help me?
Sam: Don't you get it? She doesn't want to help you. The longer it takes to find Jake, the better it is for the show -- that's what she wants!
Elizabeth: Amelia, this is your decision.
Sam: If you put them on, I walk.
Elizabeth: Are you serious?
Sam: Believe me, if I thought this would help you, I would do it!
Elizabeth: My child's been kidnapped, and you care more about winning a fight with your producer? Go to hell.
Sam: Oh --
Amelia: What is wrong with you?
Logan: There is not enough money in this world to get me to call a loser like you my father.
Scott: Ah, shut up, you. You would sell your mother if the price was right.
Lulu: Back off.
Scott: You know, Lulu, I am sorry that you chose to get involved in this.
Lulu: Why do you even pretend to care about me after all the ways you've hurt my family, especially my mother? I don't blame Logan for wishing he wasn't related to you.
Scott: You know, I don't know what Tracy offered you, but you do not want to go to prison for fraud and extortion. That's what'll happen if you try and blackmail me. So, take my advice before you run around town telling everybody that you're my long-lost son. You do not want me as your enemy. Ugh.
[Door opens and closes]
Lulu: I'm so sorry. I didn't know that he was going to be here. I just thought that if you had all the facts, maybe you would be interested in helping -- not that he was going to be here.
Logan: I know all I need to know. Thanks.
Elizabeth: I cannot believe Sam.
Lucky: I don't understand why she wouldn't want us to come on her show.
Elizabeth: She can't stand me?
Lucky: No, she's jealous of you and Jason.
Elizabeth: Why, because we're friends?
Lucky: Exactly, because Jason is always there. You know, saving your life, telling you not to talk to cops.
Elizabeth: My son has been missing for over 24 hours. Fighting about Jason is not going to help find him. But being on "Everyday Heroes" could have.
Lucky: Okay, you know what? We can find another way.
Elizabeth: Sam's show has a nationwide audience. Why didn't you fight harder to get her to cooperate?
Lucky: What -- what do you expect me to do? You want me to take her out back and threaten her at gunpoint, like your good friend Jason would have done? Okay, where are you going?
Amelia: Look, I get that you envy Elizabeth, but refusing to help her find her missing child takes jealousy to a whole new level.
Sam: Oh, don't you dare pretend that you care about finding Jake.
Amelia: Right. It's all about the ratings.
Sam: Yes. That and payback. I mean, you blame me for your father's death. You would like to torture me. I know this.
Amelia: How is encouraging you to find a kidnapped boy torture?
Sam: How? Well, gee, let me see -- uh -- a setup. Because you set me up every other time. So why wouldn't it be? You like to jerk me around.
Amelia: Try and grasp the fact that not everything is about you. A little boy is missing. The child of the man that you claim to love. I would imagine you would do everything in your power to help find Jake. Unless, of course, you're the one that took him.
Sonny: Okay, here's the deal. I've had our people watching Sam. So far, they have no reason to believe she was involved in the disappearance.
Jason: Sonny, I -- I want to be wrong, okay? But something's just -- it's -- something's a little off. Sam is not acting like herself.
Sonny: Okay, you got Elizabeth pregnant; you lied about it for months. That could get Sam angry.
Jason: Angry enough to kidnap Jake?
Sonny: I'm not defending Sam. You have every right to not trust her after everything she's been hiding, but you have to look at the facts. The baby was taken, what, two days ago from the park?
Jason: Yeah, two days ago, yes.
Sonny: Okay, she -- Sam hasn't disappeared. She's gone to the penthouse, slept at the penthouse. She's gone to work. So if she has the kid, where's the kid?
Jason: I don't -- I don't know.
Kate: I walked in to Sonny's office and I found him standing over Jerry, threatening to "cut his heart out."
Kate: This was no empty threat. Sonny was cold and detached, and he was treating Jerry like he was a problem to be handled, not a living, breathing human being.
Carly: Jerry deserves everything he gets.
Kate: Oh. How can you have no reaction when I tell you that your -- your husband's brother's life's been threatened?
Carly: Because Sonny has excellent reason to hate Jerry, and if Jax were standing here right now, he'd tell you himself. Jerry's a very dangerous man, Kate.
Kate: Okay, well, apparently, so is Sonny. Oh -- he was cold and -- and detached, and I don't see how you could spend all those years in marriage not feeling -- feeling troubled, or -- God, appalled at what he does for a living.
Carly: It's one thing to hear rumors about what Sonny does for a living. It's another thing to come face to face with it. If you have a problem with what you saw today, it's best you walk away -- now, before you get too involved.
Tracy: Well, I appreciate the extra effort. It must not have been easy to hire somebody on such short notice.
Lulu: Logan is from Hollingsbeck, Texas. Scott got his mom pregnant and walked out before he was born.
Tracy: You're kidding. And he just showed up in Port Charles in time to help me blackmail Scott?
Lulu: No, Logan's known that Scott was his father all along. It wasn't until one of his old war buddies came to Port Charles that he decided to come to town and see Scott for himself. I thought that if I showed him all the information that the investigator dug up that he'd want to turn the tables on Scott and help you get out, but I guess I was wrong.
Tracy: Well, if he really is Scott's son, he -- he's valuable leverage.
Lulu: Yeah, but you saw what happened. Logan wants no part in this.
Tracy: You're a persuasive girl. You'll find a way to make him change his mind.
Patrick: I spoke to my father about the Hallstead case.
Robin: Why did you do that, after everything we just talked about?
Patrick: Well, I offered to assist. He said it's his surgery, he makes the calls. If he needs me, I'm there. Maybe I'll learn something.
Robin: Noah turned you down?
Patrick: Of course he did. As much as I'm an arrogant, opinionated bastard, so is my father. Look, I just wanted you to know that -- that I made the gesture.
Robin: I appreciate that.
Patrick: I don't know if I'll ever trust my father as a surgeon, completely. I'm too afraid that if he fails, it'll reflect badly on my reputation, but that's for me to deal with. And I'm glad that you don't hold the same prejudice. My father was a brilliant surgeon. Sometimes, I think in his prime, maybe he was better than me.
Robin: Huh. Patrick Drake is having a moment of self-doubt? I didn't think it was possible.
Patrick: Okay, easy. Don't tell anyone, okay? A good surgeon is supposed to have nerves of steel and an ego to match.
Robin: Well, you should have both, then, because you're the best of the best.
Patrick: You sure about that?
Robin: Hmm -- positive. We both know that I'm never wrong.
Spinelli: Hey, so I hacked into the bank records and I couldn't find a traceable wire transfer and neither can --
Sam: Whose accounts?
Spinelli: You are so not Stone Cold.
Sam: No, Spinelli, I'm not. What are you doing?
Spinelli: Um -- I -- scouring the recesses of cyberspace looking for clues to find the small stone -- uh, the innocent one.
Sam: No, go ahead, say it -- the small, innocent Stone Cold one -- I mean, something like that. That's probably what you call Jason's baby, right?
Spinelli: Not if it causes you pain. I -- I would never -- I would never do anything to hurt you, fair Samantha.
Sam: No, you know what hurts is Jason lying to my face for months about having a child -- that hurts.
Spinelli: Okay -- Jason hated keeping baby Jake's true parentage a secret, but he just did it to spare you pain.
Sam: Oh, come on. He did it because that's what Elizabeth wanted and Elizabeth always gets what she wants. I mean, and why wouldn't she? She's the mother of his child -- I'm just the woman who keeps his bed warm.
Spinelli: No, no, you're wrong. You're wrong. Stone Cold loves you more you know --
Sam: Look, I don't want to hear how much Jason loves me right now. I'd really like to be left alone. Please.
Spinelli: Look, baby Jake is a miracle that can mend all hearts. I -- when he's found, I have faith that it'll bring you and Stone Cold back together.
Amelia: You know, I realize you're waiting to screen next week's show. Unfortunately, we're going to have to bump up the climbing episode. No, the mother who was featured in the fire safety segment is refusing to sign the waiver. Without her consent, we -- okay, I will take care of it. Whew. Maureen? Hi, it's Amelia Joffe from "Everyday Heroes."
Maureen: I asked you not to call here again.
Amelia: I fully intended to honor your request -- that is, until I rewatched your segment. It is truly a powerful piece, Maureen, one that could help prevent another parent from ever having to go through what you went through when you lost your baby in that fire --
Maureen: I -- I have to go.
Jason: Bernie, just -- just listen to me for one minute, okay? I just need you to go through my accounts and see if Sam's made any out-of-the-ordinary withdrawals in the past few weeks, okay? Just let me know what you find out.
Elizabeth: When did you make bail?
Jason: This morning. Sonny called in a favor, got me released. What are you doing here?
Elizabeth: Well, I wanted to talk to Sonny. I was hoping that he could get through to Sam for me.
Jason: What do you mean?
Elizabeth: Lucky and I wanted to appear on "Everyday Heroes" to appeal to the kid and Amelia, the show's producer, said that it was a great idea, but Sam flat out said no.
Jason: Wait -- wait a minute. That's -- that's weird. She wanted you guys on the show and now she doesn't -- why?
Elizabeth: She's afraid that Amelia is trying to exploit our grief. I don't really care -- I just want my baby home. Jason, you know I will do anything at this point. If I hadn't turned my back --
Jason: Elizabeth, it's -- you didn't do anything wrong. Okay? You're the best mother that Jake could possibly have. You have loved him and put him first from the minute you found out you were pregnant. I know -- I know that you're scared.
Elizabeth: We have to find him.
Jason: We will. I promise, we are going to find our son.
Kate: I had planned to do an extensive remodel of the house, but now I want to sell it as is. Just find me a buyer as soon as possible.
Sonny: Why are you selling?
Kate: I have absolutely no desire to live next to you.
Sonny: Really? From what I can see, you've go a lot of desire. That's not something you can run from.
Carly: Oh. That's not going to work. Okay.
Carly: Oh, my gosh! You just locked us in here.
Jerry: Works for me.
Lucky: Amelia Joffe, j-o-f-f-E. Yeah, run -- run the name. Just call me the minute you get anything.
Elizabeth: Why are you checking on Amelia?
Lucky: Sam got me to thinking -- what if Amelia is willing to do anything for ratings?
Elizabeth: You think she kidnapped Jake?
Lucky: She practically begged you to come on "Everyday Heroes" after Jake was born.
Elizabeth: Yeah, as an update. She said the audience would be interested to see how he's doing.
Lucky: Mm-hmm, and now that he's been kidnapped, just imagine how interested they would be, okay? Amelia's ratings would go through the roof.
Elizabeth: Yes, that's what I want -- to get Jake's picture out to as many people as possible. Somebody had to have seen him.
Lucky: And when Jake is found, we agree to go back on "Everyday Heroes" for a reunion. Don't you see? Maybe Amelia planned this whole thing.
Jason: Where were you when Jake disappeared from the park? Let's go.
Amelia: More importantly, where was Sam? Unlike me, she actually has motive to kidnap your son.
Jason: You hate Sam -- right? That's not motive enough to kidnap somebody or frame somebody?
Amelia: Look, there's a flaw in your theory. To frame Sam, I would have had to steal the baby myself. I may want to make Sam pay for killing my father, but not bad enough to send myself to prison.
Elizabeth: Okay, here we go. There you are, pumpkin.
Elizabeth: Hey, cam, you need help with that? Here, let me have your foot. There we go. How about when we get home, we practice tying our shoes? Want to do that? Does that sound like a good idea?
Maureen: It's okay. It's okay, it's okay. Mommy's here. Mommy's here -- shh, shh. Shh, I need you -- shh. I need you to be quiet for a little -- just a little bit longer, okay? Just a little bit longer -- just until we can all get away from here. Shh -- just a little longer.
Jason: Okay, you still haven't answered my question -- where were you when Jake disappeared?
Amelia: I was in the police station talking to you. Satisfied?
Jason: Hmm, wait, you didn't stay too long. Where'd you go after that?
Amelia: Back to the studio, and, no, I didn't cut through the park.
Jason: Okay, what about Sam? Was she working that morning?
Amelia: We taped an interview with a woman named Maureen Harper who lost her infant in a house fire. Actually, I just got off the phone with her. Right after Jake was kidnapped, Maureen suddenly changed her mind about letting us air the segment. I -- I thought it was a simple case of cold feet, but when I called Maureen's house, I could hear a baby crying in the background.
Jason: Well, did she ever mention any other kids?
Amelia: A -- a 3-year-old son, but this sounded like a baby. When it started crying, Maureen panicked and hung up the phone. I was just about to call the police when you showed up.
Jason: No, no, no. You need to tell me where I can find her right now.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Kate: I have seen who you are. It's time for me to leave.
Sam: I need some legal advice.
Alexis: You witnessed a crime. I want to know what it was.
Amelia: I heard a baby crying in the background. That baby is your son.
