Kate: I'm sorry about the delay in returning your call. No, I was stuck in court all morning. Now, about the December issue -- I'm going to have to call you back. Yes, it's just one distraction after another these days. What are you doing?
Sonny: Uh, well, I know that Kate Howard only eats fat-free chicken with salad. But, you know, Connie Falconeri used to love pizza from the old neighborhood with some beer on ice, you know? It's real cold. I've just -- I've come here to thank my old friend, Connie, for coming through for me today.
Carly: How'd you manage this? Can't be easy getting a private jet to Caracas on such short notice.
Jerry: It's all about who you know, darling. I mean, the hard part's going to be once we get there. And trying to prove that Jason Morgan didn't kill Alcazar -- that's going to be a bit of a challenge, especially since he did.
Carly: Yeah, well, Lorenzo was scum.
Jerry: Oh, do -- do you reserve the hatred for the ex-husbands or just the dead ones?
Carly: Lorenzo was the biggest mistake I ever made.
Jerry: Well, you see, your being Alcazar's ex-wife is going to come in our favor, although I'm surprised that you followed me all the way to Caracas, or anywhere else for that matter.
Carly: I would do anything to save Jason --
Carly: Even put up with you.
Jerry: So I gather. But would you go half as far for my brother?
Irina: No, the guard's outside working around the clock.
Jax: Hold -- hold on a second. Is this how you treat every man you plan to kill?
Irina: You're Jerry's little brother. This is special just for you.
Jax: Well, you know what? I'm intrigued, but I'm also married.
Irina: You're still a man.
Jax: Yeah. Let me rephrase that -- I'm a happily married man who doesn't cheat on his wife, okay? Ah!
Irina: Does infidelity count if you're going to die?
Ric: It's a simple question, Mrs. Spencer. Over the years of your meaningful friendship with the defendant, have you and Jason Morgan ever had sex?
Jason: Leave her alone, Ric!
[Judge pounds gavel]
Judge: I want order and I want you to sit down! Sit down, Mr. Morgan, or pay the consequences.
Georgie: Looks like we had a busy morning. If you want to go and get out --
Lulu: Oh, no, no, I don't mind.
Georgie: You normally can't get out of here fast enough.
Lulu: Did you do something different with your hair?
Lulu: Looks really cute.
Georgie: Yeah. I felt like a change, you know? Doing something different, not falling into my same old rut.
Lulu: Huh. That's good advice -- I should use it.
Georgie: Are we talking about Logan? No, no, it's obvious -- you just have to read the body language. You know, he really wants you and you want him to back off.
Lulu: We kind of got thrown together by accident and we can't seem to avoid each other.
Georgie: You could always just walk away.
Lulu: Logan asked me out on a date.
Georgie: Did you say yes?
Lulu: Not exactly.
Georgie: So you're procrastinating?
Lulu: He's waiting for me at Jake’s. Logan said all I had to do was play a game of pool, and if I win, he'll leave me alone.
Georgie: Do you want him to?
Sonny: It's the closest thing we have to Tony’s pizza from the old neighborhood. As you can see, um, thin crust, spicy sauce. We got the beer that was on ice, so it's real cold, so when you, you know, open it --
Kate: What are you doing?
Sonny: I am thanking you because of what you did on the stand -- making Ric look like a fool and I am making you an offer that you cannot refuse.
Kate: I can under no circumstances eat pizza.
Sonny: We're just going to keep this, like, our little secret -- you know, like everything else about us.
Jerry: You know, it must drive my brother crazy that you worry about other men. If it's not you, it's Sonny. If it's not Sonny, it's Jason. Where does my brother fit in in the scale of things? I wonder -- tell me.
Carly: You can't seriously think I'm going to have that conversation with you.
Jerry: Why, you got other things to do?
Carly: I hate you. I'm not going to sit here and discuss with you who I love and why I love tm.
Jerry: Oh, come on, your hatred's getting old. You don't hate me.
Carly: You know what's old? Jax saving your butt over and over again.
Jerry: Oh, God.
Carly: You should've fried for what happened at the metro court, but, no, he bailed you out, and what does he get in return? More of the same. Has it ever occurred to you that Jax could die because of your manipulations?
Jerry: That -- nonsense. Jax has a constant guardian he always had. He'll be fine.
Carly: Okay -- well, you know, I'm glad you think so. I know how human he is. And God forbid the day come where you have to choose between your life and Jax's? He's going to wind up as dead as Irina and every other person you've come in contact with.
Jerry: Carly, Carly, Carly? Never mention Irina's name again -- do you understand?
Irina: I find it erotic when a doomed man challenges me. But make no mistake -- I don't care how badly you're injured when I finally put a bullet in your head --
Irina: As long as Jerry gets to watch.
Irina: What are you doing?
Jax: Oh, I'm just trying to figure out what my brother did to you.
Irina: Jerry told me that no one can be trusted -- ever.
Jax: Well, you wouldn't happen to be Irina by any chance, would you? No kidding? Wow. Well, Jerry will be very surprised to know that you're still alive.
Irina: I doubt he'll care either way.
Jax: You worked together, right?
Irina: We were undercover.
Jax: Yeah, stealing information for opposing governments.
Irina: Too reckless for our own good. Somewhere along the way, the fun and games turned real. We fell in love -- at least I did.
Jax: Well, Jerry did, too.
Irina: If that was his idea of love-
Jax: He was captured.
Irina: And I could've run. I should've run, but I stayed to help him, and he betrayed me. My mistake was thinking that I was actually important. There is only one person in the whole world that matters to Jerry, and that's you, which is why he's going to watch you die.
[Irina makes clicking sound]
Diane: Objection, Your Honor.
[Judge pounds gavel]
Judge: I want order and I want you to sit down.
Jason: She says she didn't know anything.
Ric: Your Honor, could someone please restrain the defendant?
[Judge pounds gavel]
Diane: Shut up.
Judge: Sit down, Mr. Morgan, or face the consequences.
Jason: Tell Lansing to back off!
Ric: Your Honor can see that Mr. Morgan is volatile and dangerous, and I think for everyone's safety, the state suggests that the prisoner be shackled for the remainder of the trial.
Spinelli: Did you know that billiards started out as a way to play croquet indoors?
Spinelli: Yes, croquet. It's a lawn game for the privileged ones -- probably not too big where you come from.
Logan: What do you want?
Spinelli: Are you also aware that if thrown accurately -- accurately and with the right amount of force, a billiard ball can cause severe brain damage regardless of how small or smarmy or unworthy that brain may be?
Logan: Let me guess -- your hard drive has crashed and you fear you're going to die of loneliness.
Spinelli: For clarity's sake --
Spinelli: Let me put this into the language of your people -- small-brained people.
Logan: Right, yeah.
Spinelli: Leave Lulu alone.
Spinelli: If she shows up here, be gone with you.
Logan: So what you're saying is you don't respect or trust Lulu to make her own decisions, do you?
Spinelli: The Blond One has been recently through some pretty difficult times, most of which I can't mention to you because, see, the Blond One confides her deepest wishes and fears in I, the jackal, so --
Logan: You know what? I have actually had some really, just, well, horrible stuff happen to me, and if you would like to hear about it --
Spinelli: Look, don't confuse the Blond One's empathy for your plight with your own wishful thinking, okay? Fair Lulu will not be drawn into the James Dean-ishness of your social rebellion.
Logan: What are you talking about?
Spinelli: I will not stand by and watch you hurt my friend.
Logan: Oh. I got it. You're her friend, and I'm about to be a hell of a lot more.
Lulu: Yeah, Logan has moments where he can be a great guy, but they're just moments. The rest of the time, he's --
Georgie: Arrogant, pushy, hostile, and really obnoxious the way he talks about working for Sonny as if it makes him special?
Lulu: Well, he has risked his life for Sonny more than once.
Georgie: So now you're defending him?
Lulu: I'm just trying not to judge him. Look, Coop told me to stay away from him and Coop's his best friend.
Georgie: Do you trust Coop?
Lulu: He has no reason to lie to me -- I mean, unless Maxie put him up to it.
Georgie: Uh -- no, I think Coop's too honorable to let my sister use him like that.
Lulu: I just -- I know that Logan has a good side to him, I've seen it. I'm just -- I'm not sure that it outweighs the bad.
Georgie: Let's be honest -- you like Logan's bad side. No, no, no, really, because if you didn't, you'd realize that it's Spinelli who's been amazing to you.
Lulu: Spinelli is my friend.
Georgie: Yeah -- yeah, and he's also, you know, funny and smart and the kind of guy who stays with a girl for the long run, but, you know, why would you go for that when you can have a completely unpredictable guy who is guaranteed to stomp on your heart?
Lulu: Are you saying you could go for Spinelli?
Georgie: Hmm -- not on a bet. He's totally into you and I won't put my heart through that again.
Sonny: It's just pizza. Why is it so hard for you to accept anything from me?
Kate: Oh, Sonny. Not everything is about you.
Sonny: Well --
Kate: Look, I have a museum party in --
Kate: The next month and I'm wearing a Neil Laurent original and it's not going to drape right if I'm packed in it like a sausage.
Sonny: Speaking of sausage -- this used to be your favorite. Come on -- you know that you like that. Take it, take it.
Kate: No, it was your favorite. Mine was pepperoni and extra cheese.
Sonny: And hotdogs at Coney Island, fire hydrants to cool off fully dressed -- now, you won't even risk getting wet in the shower.
Kate: Oh -- I am someone who lives a very different life. Don't look at me like that. What, you still boost cars?
Kate: There was a time when I couldn't say no to you.
Sonny: Well, I wish I had known then so I'd have tried --
Sonny: You know, for that extra.
Kate: Yeah, well, it's your loss, because now I'm a woman who can say no to anything. Mm-hmm -- it's all about self-control. It's crucial and I won't let go of it.
Sonny: Well, you won't let go of anything -- that's the problem. Like, you know, unless we're talking about those pills you accidentally took from your boss -- those enhancing drugs --
Kate: Yeah, see, and a gentleman wouldn't feel the need to remind me of that.
Sonny: Well, I'm not trying to be disrespectful, Connie. I'm just saying you -- it just seems like you can't have fun anymore.
Kate: Oh! You mean -- excuse me -- your idea of fun. See, what you don't get -- this works for me. I'm comfortable with who I am, and I'm not going to change it for anyone. It's my idea of fun and I'm sorry if it doesn't meet your standards.
[Knock on door]
Sam: Oh, no -- not interested.
Amelia: I have news about Jason's trial. Elizabeth is on the stand. Ric wants to know if she ever slept with Jason.
[Judge pounds gavel]
Diane: Your Honor, my client does not need to be restrained. He didn't attack anyone, he poses no threat. He simply had a justifiably adverse reaction to the district attorney's persistent badgering of this witness, but I can assure this court it will not happen again. The D.A.'s line of questioning is both invasive and irrelevant. As was already stipulated, Mr. Lansing was once married to this witness and is now using this trial as an opportunity to punish her for the divorce. The district attorney has railroaded my client before, Your Honor, but this may be the most egregious violation because he has brought murder charges against my client for a man who may not even be dead!
Ric: Your Honor, defense is making closing argument.
Judge: Mr. Lansing, do you intend to call any witnesses you haven't slept with?
Ric: Your Honor, I hold no more malice towards Mrs. Spencer than I did to Samantha McCall.
Diane: Then you should be finished questioning her, because she told you everything she knows about the afternoon in question. My client received a phone call about coffee.
Ric: I am establishing that Mrs. Spencer's testimony might be biased towards Mr. Morgan. And in light of that fact, the prosecution would like to continue this line of questioning.
Kate: Everything else aside, it was nice of you to bring this to me.
Sonny: Yeah? Well, it was great the way you handled Ric's questions, and I was kind of surprised since he accused me of using you as an alibi.
Kate: Oh, I was just being honest. I found the D.A.'s whole line of questioning absurd. So, what, you get one phone call in front of me and supposedly it's to order this Alcazar person's murder?
Kate: It's melodramatic and silly. I mean, business people get lots of phone calls, at least 50 a day.
Sonny: It was a setup. Ric got you on the stand to establish that I made that call. That way, he can get Elizabeth on the stand to testify she saw Jason get the call. Then, he can harass Elizabeth, make Jason blow up, and prove Jason is dangerous.
Kate: Well, if I were still Connie Falconeri from Bensonhurst, I'd tell your brother, Ric, to get a life.
Michael: Hey, Dad. So uh --
Michael: Hi, Miss Howard. Um -- can we get our ball out of your pond?
Kate: Koi, lily, or meditation?
Sonny: Okay, hold on one second here. First of all, love you guys. What are you doing here, and where is your mother?
Carly: You know, Spinelli may be strange, but he managed to come up with a lot of information on Lorenzo. I mean, if this doesn't prove that he's still alive, nothing will –
Man: Got her.
Irina: Why am I here?
[Man cocks gun]
Jerry: Don't do it. Man: She no longer matters.
Jerry: No. No! No! No!
Jerry: Oh. Hmm. Hmm.
Carly: What is wrong with you?
Jax: You know, I'd be interested to hear your version of what happened with my brother.
Jax: Because Jerry -- Jerry thinks you're dead. And, actually, he's been living with a lot of guilt.
Irina: One must have conscience to feel guilt, which means Jerry has neither.
Jax: My brother's always been a rogue, but he's also always had a conscience. And then he met you. Next time he showed up, you were supposedly dead and he took more than a dozen people hostage, which begs the question -- are you the reason my brother lost his soul?
Irina: Torture changes you. It makes you realize exactly how far you'll go to stay alive. For me, that meant cooperating.
Jax: You were tortured, too?
Irina: You reach a point where all you can think is, “How do I make them stop?" I finally agreed to let them use me against Jerry.
Jax: Oh, so you're angry at Jerry for betraying you when you really betrayed him, too? How does that give you the moral high ground? Ah!
Amelia: I was called to testify by the prosecution. While I waited, I watched on closed-circuit television in the witness room. Became clear they weren't going to get to me today, but before I left, I saw Ric grilling Elizabeth on the stand, asking if she'd ever slept with Jason.
Sam: What did she say?
Amelia: Well, the defense objected and they were all arguing when I left, but I can only assume that Elizabeth -- the paragon of virtue that she is -- will admit the truth. And if the D.A.'s line of questioning leads right to "who's Jake’s daddy," you'll get everything you wanted. Elizabeth and Jason will both be exposed as liars.
Sam: No, if you had listened to anything that I had ever said, you would know that that's not what I want.
Amelia: Right, right -- it's all about the baby you can't have. Well, at least little Jake comes out of this once the truth comes out, there's nothing to stop Jason and Elizabeth from being together and raising their own child.
[Knock on door]
Sam: Oh, excuse me.
Sam: Hi, come in.
Nikolas: Well, why -- why'd you want to see me?
Sam: Get ready to prop up your brother because it's about to hit the fan.
Nikolas: What? What's wrong with Lucky?
Sam: Well, Lucky is about to find out what kind of a liar he married.
Judge: The court sees no reason to restrain the defendant at this time, but be warned, Mr. Morgan -- one more outburst like the one we just witnessed and I'll reverse my decision.
Diane: My client fully understands, Your Honor. It will not happen again.
Judge: Additionally, I believe the prosecution's line of questioning regarding the nature of the witness' relationship to Mr. Morgan is relevant. The D.A. may continue.
Ric: Thank you, Your Honor. Mrs. Spencer, we've already established a friendship with Mr. Morgan. Did it ever progress to a romantic level?
Elizabeth: Yes, we dated a long time ago.
Ric: Was it serious?
Elizabeth: Not really. When we broke up, we were able to remain friends.
Ric: Careful, Mrs. Spencer. You are under oath to tell the truth.
Elizabeth: That is the truth.
Ric: Did you have sex with the defendant when the two of you were dating?
Ric: Did you ever have sex with Jason Morgan? Mrs. Spencer, you're under oath. Have you and the accused, Jason Morgan, ever had a sexual relationship?
Amelia: D.A. Lansing has introduced Elizabeth and Jason's personal relationship into her testimony.
Sam: Look, Amelia, there's no reason to sugarcoat it. Nikolas knows all about what they did last summer. Amelia was at the courthouse, and she couldn't wait to run over with all the gory details. She's good that way.
Nikolas: I'm -- I'm sorry, this isn't something I care to discuss with a stranger, so if you could --
Amelia: Oh, privacy isn't an option at this point. Elizabeth is about to admit under oath that she's intimately involved with Jason. By the end of the day, the whole town will be dishing about it. Enjoy it while you can. Oh, no doubt you'll want to comfort poor Lucky.
Sam: Oh --
Amelia: Someone needs to.
Sam: Please go.
Nikolas: Well --
Nikolas: How much does she know about my brother?
Sam: Okay, I -- I made the mistake of confiding in Amelia. I wanted the truth to come out a long time ago, but I didn't want to mess with Lucky's sobriety. But it's time. The truth needs to come out.
Ric: Mrs. Spencer, how long have you and Jason Morgan been lovers?
Elizabeth: We're not lovers. It was one night.
Ric: Hmm. And when did that one night occur? Was it within the last year? Winter? Spring? When?
Elizabeth: Just after you had sex with your stepdaughter.
Judge: The witness will answer.
Elizabeth: Last August.
Ric: Hmm. And you've remained close with the defendant since then, correct?
Elizabeth: Yes, we've stayed friends.
Ric: Well, with benefits.
Ric: Sorry, Your Honor, I apologize. How many times would you say you have seen your friend Mr. Morgan since that night last august?
Diane: Oh -- Your Honor, we have already established that the witness had sex with my client on one occasion. The D.A.'s continuing this line of questioning is both pointless and prurient.
Judge: I'll see you both in chambers.
[Judge pounds gavel]
Judge: Court is in recess for 10 minutes.
Sonny: Did your mom mention where she was going when she dropped you off without letting me know?
Michael: She said that she could help Jason. It's --
Sonny: Can you, for a couple of minutes, just watch them while I figure this out?
Kate: Of course. How hard can it be?
Michael: Yeah, right. So, can we please get our ball from the pond?
Kate: Oh -- Michael, honestly, what do you have against my koi?
Michael: Not the fish. The one with the big flowers floating in it.
Kate: My water lily pond? You -- the one I had designed to look like a Monet painting?
Michael: I guess.
Kate: No, honey, no. No. I can't have you flailing about my pink carpensis. They're too delicate. Morgan, I -- I'll buy you another ball.
Michael: But he likes that ball. It's the last thing that Jax gave him before he left.
Kate: Okay. Well, you know what? We're just going to wait for your father to get back and he'll figure it out. In the meantime, there's pizza. Morgan -- no, Morgan!
Spinelli: See, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter how the Blond One and the Jackal feel for each other. You are still most unworthy.
Logan: You know what? You want to talk about this man to man, you bring it on. But the "wizards of weirdo" garbage is driving me nuts.
Spinelli: Have it your way. But I've got your number, bro dog dude, so listen up.
Coleman: Hey, guys. Keep your balls on the table, okay? Uh.
Spinelli: Okay, let me explain this to you in a way that you can compute, okay? Lulu is special, and the Jackal's theory is that you just see her as another challenge, and that -- that is so wrong. So, with all due respect, I suggest that you leave her alone.
Logan: Or what? You going to fry my mainframe?
Spinelli: Huh. That is so almost funny. No, what I would do is I would appeal to those who favor the Blond One. Like, I don't know -- maybe your boss, Mr. Corinthos, Sir. Tell him that she objects to you bothering her which she most certainly does on a variety of levels.
Logan: You know what? You're right. I mean, when you're right, you're right. I have not -- I haven't -- I have not shown Lulu the respect she deserves. She -- she is a special person.
Spinelli: Wow. Huh. So much lying in here, the Jackal's antennae are quivering.
Spinelli: We can't let Lulu risk your smarminess and insincere smoothness. She would only get hurt, and that -- that's unacceptable.
Lulu: Shouldn't that be my decision?
Singer: If you want why won't you?
Logan: You're here.
Spinelli: Uh -- look, it was -- it was presumptuous of the Jackal to interfere and speak on your behalf.
Lulu: Well, it was very sweet of you to try and protect me, but whatever Logan is, or turns out to be, is for me to find out.
Spinelli: I -- with all humility, when you discover that your kindness has been misplaced and that the crabby commando is not fit to breathe the same air, I will not judge or criticize or say "I told you so."
Lulu: Thank you. I will keep that in mind.
Logan: You know, I actually didn't think you were going to make it.
Lulu: Are you disappointed?
Logan: No, not at all. I'm ready to go.
Lulu: Great, then let's get this over with.
Logan: All right. You know, you could actually try and have some fun while we're doing this.
Lulu: Yeah, don't push your luck. It was already hard enough to convince myself to come over here, so let's just go over the rules. If I win --
Lulu: You leave me alone. If I lose --
Logan: Right -- I take you out on a date, that's it.
Lulu: One date.
Logan: One date. And I know this is where I'm supposed to say something stupid, like "one date's all you're going to need with me." Huh. I'm not going to do that. No, I'm serious, I'm not going to do that this time, okay? Because I always sabotage self the only thing I want to do tonight is prove to you that I'm -- I'm not as bad as you think I am.
Carly: You look like hell.
Jerry: Yeah, well, I'm not much about flying.
Carly: Does the truth ever cross your lips?
Jerry: Oh --
Carly: Even with something as simple as -- I don't know -- your health?
Jerry: Oh, come on, you're in no position to quibble about honestly. And you're as quick as I am with a lie or a half-truth when it comes to getting what you want, darling.
Carly: Don't compare the two of us. When I lie, it's to help people.
Jerry: Oh, yeah -- starting with yourself.
Carly: Yeah, sometimes.
Jerry: I mean, what about when you married Jax? I mean, how -- how could you -- how could you make vows to him when you showed your undying love to Sonny during the Metro Court crisis?
Carly: That's none of your business.
Jerry: I disagree. It is my business. You are my sister-in-law. You're family. You swore your undying love to my brother.
Carly: Not that I owe you an explanation, but I care about Sonny and Jax, and even Jason, in very different ways. Jax is my husband, and I love him very much. And being on this plane with you makes me realize how much because he's nothing like you.
Irina: I can be as gentle as not.
Irina: I'll even consider an apology. Hmm. I got my temper from my Ukrainian grandmother. I got my survival skills from her, too. She got attacked by thieves when she was 60. She managed to chase away two of them, and slit the throat of the third one with a teacup.
Jax: Good for Granny.
Irina: My babushka is tame compared to me. I know a number of ways to make person beg to die. But fortunately, I'm not mad at you.
Jax: That's nice.
Irina: In fact, I'm even going to enjoy knowing you better.
Jax: Well, how long do you plan on keeping me around?
Irina: I don't think you should worry about such details. I want you to enjoy your final days.
Jax: Well, in that case, how about some food?
Jax: And a nice bottle of wine?
Jax: Say, a dry white, chilled to 50 degrees.
Jax: What do you think?
Irina: If I didn't think you were too smart to try something so transparent, I would say you're trying to get me to leave you alone. Now, why would that be?
Lucky: You're garbage. Every time you saved Elizabeth, or saved our son, you've always wanted Elizabeth for yourself.
Mayor Floyd: Detective -- Detective, this is not the time or the place.
Lucky: Do you think I give a damn?
Mayor Floyd: I sympathize with your position, but I cannot let you jeopardize the prosecution's case.
Lucky: So fire me.
Mayor Floyd: Do you want to punish that man? Then let Lansing do his job. Let him send Morgan to prison. Let him send Morgan to prison.
Lulu: I knew that you couldn't be trusted.
Lulu: When we made this bet, you never told me that you were the reincarnation of Minnesota Fats.
Logan: How do you know about Minnesota Fats?
Lulu: I'm Luke Spencer’s daughter. I'm required to know lots of random cultural trivia.
Logan: Well, I am a bastard son; I had to learn how to survive. Eight ball here put dinner on the table quite a few nights. Ahem -- but, Lulu, don't -- don't give up, sweetheart. It's still anybody's game here.
Lulu: Huh! Yeah, you're not going to lose.
Logan: Oh, let's see. This is kind of a tough shot.
Lulu: You just did that on purpose.
Logan: What? And let you win? I don't think so.
Lulu: You don't think that I can win on my own.
Logan: See, this is a lose-lose for me, okay? If I win, I've hustled you, and that's totally unfair. And if I lose, well, then I'm bailing out on the date.
Lulu: And are you?
Logan: See? Spencer, you are impossible to please.
Lulu: That's right, and don't you forget it. Well, this is clearly all my fault. I should have asked if you were a good pool player before we made the bet. But being a hustler, you wouldn't have told me the truth, anyway.
Logan: See, now you're catching on.
Lulu: Okay, so, a bet's a bet. You outsmarted me, and I deserved to be hustled, so I am in. One date. When's it going to be?
Logan: How about right now?
Kate: Yeah, you know -- all right, make one right here. Look, see that one you just made? Look at that. It's beautiful. It's a beautiful water lily. Monet has nothing on you.
Michael: This is my favorite --
Kate: Although there's a water lily on you.
Michael: Ah! Oh, icky!
Kate: Oh, you're fine. Thumbs up.
Michael: Stop it.
Carly: Okay, well, you know, it wasn't love at first sight for me and Jax. I couldn't stand him. I thought he was all flash and fluff, and God knows what he thought about me. He's way too much of a gentleman to ever really tell me. And if that wasn't bad enough, Sonny and Jason couldn't stand him. And then his marriage to my best friend, Courtney -- well, that was a complete disaster. But that wasn't half as bad as the nightclub we had together.
Carly: That was bad.
Jerry: Well, up to now, I'm not hearing a whole lot of love.
Carly: Jax and I spent years on the periphery of each other's lives. Then Courtney’s death and the child she left behind brought us together.
Jerry: Oh, the Cassadine boy -- I heard about that.
Carly: Yep. Jax and I came out of that with our eyes wide open and very much in love. It's no short-term attraction. What we have is deep and meaningful. It wouldn't last if it wasn't, and we wouldn't be able to forgive each other for all the stupid things we did.
Jerry: Like this little voyage to save Jason.
Carly: And like Jax chasing after you again. You know, Jax loves me for me, and I really need him to come home. After all the hell we've been through, we deserve to be together and be happy. So after this mess with Jason is over, can you please just get out of the way?
Jerry: I -- I don't know this number, so could you please enlighten me? Who is this? Hello? I said who is this?
Nikolas: Excuse me. Is Lucky Spencer still in court?
Ofc. Riley: Yes, Sir, they're all still in there.
Sam: Okay. That means Elizabeth is probably still on the stand.
Nikolas: No, we don't know that.
Sam: Okay, look, I'm sorry, but when Lucky walks out of here, he may need a friend. He may not have a wife anymore.
Diane: I'm sorry, but the judge is allowing Ric to continue this line of questioning.
Diane: Because it goes to the reliability of her testimony. He's trying to convince the jury that Elizabeth is lying about the phone call you received.
Jason: Yeah, but she's not lying.
Diane: I know that, but listen. Sooner or later, this is going to become counterproductive. Ric is going to lo like a sadist and a bully for continuing to rake Elizabeth over the coals.
Jason: I --
Diane: Listen to me, listen to me. The best thing that you can do is stay detached. Do not help Ric by having another outburst.
[Judge pounds gavel]
Judge: You're still under oath, Mrs. Spencer. Carry on, Mr. Lansing.
Ric: Thank you, Your Honor. Mr. Spencer, as was previously stipulated, you recently had a baby, is that correct?
Elizabeth: Yes, it's correct.
Ric: Hmm. Congratulations. It's Jacob Martin, is that correct?
Elizabeth: We call him Jake.
Ric: How old is Jake?
Elizabeth: He's almost 3 months. He was born in May.
Ric: He was a full-term baby?
Elizabeth: Yes, he was.
Ric: Well, that means he would be conceived around the middle of August of 2006, right?
Ric: That's around the same time that you shared that one fateful night with the defendant. So I have to ask, Mrs. Spencer -- isn't it possible that Jason Morgan, the man who is on trial for the murder of Lorenzo Alcazar, is the father of your little boy?
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Jerry: Who are you?
Carly: If Jax is in danger, I want to know right now!
Irina: It's a shame. We were having such fun.
Ric: You slept with Jason and 9 months later, your son was born. Is Jason Morgan the father of your son?
