Robin: Oh, God!
Anna: Hi. You didn't want to knock, maybe?
Robin: Well, the door was open, and then I heard a crash, so I thought I would check on you.
Patrick: Whoa. You were right. Our parents are definitely hooking up.
Jason: I mean, it's my own fault. I chose this life. Now people I care about are getting hurt because of me.
Elizabeth: Jason, none of this is your fault.
Jason: Ric put you through hell on that stand because of me, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth: I don't care. I don't regret any choices we have made for Jake.
Jerry: Congratulations. If you wanted to make me suffer, you've succeeded admirably.
Carly: Yeah, well, it wasn't any fun for me, either.
Jerry: Oh, really? You only hurt the ones you love?
Carly: I guess the needle didn't jab anything important -- you got your energy back.
Jerry: Well, agonizing pain will do that to you, darling.
Carly: Oh, just admit it -- you were faking your delirium.
Jerry: Why would I want to do that?
Carly: Because you wanted to get to me, you wanted to kiss me.
[Door kicks open]
Jerry: Stay down, do as I say. Don't shoot. Don't shoot. I'm coming up.
Jerry: Don't shoot. We'll do whatever you want.
Sonny: I need an ambulance, a woman collapsed. She's barely breathing. 124 Shoreline Road.
Noah: You guys are actually spying on us?
Robin: No, we're not spying. I -- I came by to see my mother, and then I heard a crash, so I walked in to see if she was okay.
Anna: Yes, thank you, we're fine. Thank you for checking.
Noah: I thought I said I didn't need a chaperone this morning.
Patrick: Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa. You've monitored my life plenty in the past.
Noah: Oh -- I'm your father. I'm supposed to help you learn from my mistakes, right?
Robin: And we are here to help you before you make a whopper of your own.
Anna: Yeah, but you can't worry about us. We are consenting adults.
Robin: You're supposed to be here coaching Noah so that he can impersonate Eli Love at the concert.
Noah: Yeah, she's doing a terrific job, too.
Anna: He's very talented.
Robin: Okay, it's not a good idea to mix work with pleasure.
Noah: You and Patrick have been doing exactly that for months.
Patrick: He's got a point.
Robin: Don't agree with him.
Lucky: So how long have you known that Jason and Elizabeth -- they slept together?
Sam: Um -- since the night after it happened. The night before, I had sex with Ric. Yeah, I know -- it was stupid and self-destructive. But Jason and I were having problems, and I thought I was losing him, so I figured I'd get it over with. You know, why drag the pain out? Pull the Band-Aid off quickly, right?
Lucky: But you knew that Jason hated Ric.
Sam: Yes, I did, and on some level, I knew that my sleeping with Ric would end things between Jason and I, so after "several" drinks, I went for it. Yeah.
Lucky: Whew. How'd Jason find out?
Sam: I was honest with him. I -- I had to be. I -- I thought about it, and I -- I knew I had to be, so I told him everything, and I told him how much I regretted it, because I did. And in return, Jason was honest with me, and he told me that he saw Ric and I together that night. And he went back to the penthouse, and, lo and behold, Elizabeth shows up -- she was upset about you and Maxie -- and Jason told me the two of them had slept together. He said they were consoling each other, but he didn't --
Lucky: Regret it.
Sam: Then Elizabeth came by and asked us to keep it a secret from you.
Elizabeth: Jason, I never wanted to cut you out of Jake’s life -- or out of mine.
Jason: It might've been easier for all of us.
Elizabeth: I asked you to give up your son to another man. I would never tell you that you couldn't see him.
Jason: This has made your life too complicated.
Elizabeth: I'm in knots every day trying to do what's best for Jake and to protect Lucky, as well, and look at what happened. I ended up hurting Lucky even more.
Jason: What about Lucky? Do you think he can get past the fact that we were together?
Elizabeth: I don't know. But at least it's out in the open, so he can come to me and talk about it -- or not. He just needs to decide what he wants.
Jason: What about you? What do you want?
Man: You've been asking too many questions about Lorenzo Alcazar. That's not a good thing to do.
Carly: Look, we don't want any trouble; we're just trying to find out a little information.
Man: Shut up!
Jerry: Just do as the man says, Carly.
Man: Let's go. Someone wants to see you.
Carly: Who? And where are you taking us?
Man: I said shut up!
Carly: Where did you learn to do that? Forget it, I don't want to know.
Jerry: That's very prudent. The less you know, the better it is.
Carly: Where are you going?
Jerry: I'm going to find something to remove the body.
Carly: Are you crazy? You can't do that.
Jerry: So you keep telling me.
Carly: Look, you shouldn't be up walking around, much less trying to find a place to stash a dead body, Jerry.
Jerry: I don't have much of a choice, do I?
Carly: This man's boss will figure out that you're alive and he will put you in front of a firing squad.
Jerry: I'm so touched by your concern.
Carly: Don't be. I need you to live up to your deal to free Jason, and I need to find Jax.
Jerry: Jax is perfectly safe, Carly.
Carly: Save it! A firing squad is what you deserve, but, unfortunately, I need you alive.
Jerry: What are you doing? What are you doing?
Carly: I'm calling the cops.
Robin: Mom? Listen, Eli Love is the one you want to be with, not Noah.
Anna: Oh -- don't get carried away here. No, that's silly.
Robin: Are you kidding me? You're the one that said that you obsessed with him. You went to all of his concerts, you know every song, every move -- basically, every detail about the guy, and here you are, making Noah into the guy that you're in love with.
Anna: Honey, I'm a spy. I'm not easily deceived by assumed identities, especially not one that I've helped to create.
Robin: So you're just here giving Noah the benefit of your professional expertise, huh?
Anna: Wow. We are really getting a little serious about this, aren't we?
Robin: We need to talk.
Patrick: Okay, that's our cue. We're out of here.
Noah: Wait, I'm going to get the talk, too?
Patrick: It's not going to hurt. Come on.
Noah: When did they become the parents?
Anna: I don't know, but you better do as you're told.
Noah: Yeah, you bet. I'm going to try and sneak out later to meet you.
Patrick: Okay, out, Dad!
Robin: Mom, look, I know you think I'm overreacting, but if you keep this up with Noah -- you're not the only one that's going to get hurt.
Sam: Elizabeth said that she and Jason only slept together that one time and it would never happen again. She just -- she didn't want you to find out because she didn't know how you would handle it. I think she was trying to protect you.
Lucky: Yeah, she gave me that line, too -- as if she did a good deed by lying.
Sam: I just -- I think that she thought that your recovery was on shaky ground. Lucky, she didn't want you to relapse. I'm -- I'm sorry that I've got to be the one to tell you --
Lucky: Oh, no -- Sam, I don't blame you. Elizabeth made me believe that she was loyal and I was the only one who cheated.
Sam: I wanted to tell you the truth -- I actually wanted to tell you the truth, but I -- I was angry and I -- and I didn't want anything to come out of spite. You deserve better than that.
Lucky: No, no, no, we both did.
Sam: You and Elizabeth -- you were getting married, and I was trying really hard to work things out with Jason. But Elizabeth always was making her way to come see Jason, and I finally asked her, like, what was up, "Why -- why are you spending so much time with him?" And she was, like, reassuring me that nothing romantic was going on, they were just good friends, and the sex was only that one night.
Lucky: Yeah? What do you believe?
Elizabeth: Lucky and I have been living a lie for almost a solid year, since before we got married. I don't know if he's going to be able to get past this.
Jason: I mean, he lied -- we've -- we've all been lying.
Elizabeth: Yeah, well, before we got married, he admitted to everything. He thought we were being honest with each other. I'm the one who decided that he wasn't strong enough to handle the truth. He felt betrayed, he's insulted, and if I were in his shoes, I would feel the same. But when he was taking those pills, he almost destroyed himself. I can't risk him relapsing. And I honestly believe that no matter what happened, Jake would be safer if everyone thought he was Lucky's.
Jason: And that's what you're supposed to do -- you're looking out for your kids.
Elizabeth: Well, that's not how Lucky sees it.
Jason: And what if he decides to leave? What -- what would you do?
Elizabeth: Raise my boys on my own.
Jason: Is that what you want to do?
Noah: You going to sit me down and tell me about the birds and the bees?
Patrick: Can you be serious for a minute, please?
Noah: Well, if you're going to discuss Anna's and my relationship, no.
Patrick: Okay, this is exactly what Robin was talking about.
Noah: You know, Robin's only freaked out because it's her mom and your dad. If I was anybody else, she wouldn't give a damn.
Patrick: But that's the thing, Dad -- it isn't anybody else, it's you, and you're getting carried away by fantasy.
Noah: Anna's no fantasy. Trust me.
Patrick: You are pretending to be Eli Love, the famous rock star, and it's taking you over -- I mean, the wardrobe, the swagger, the attitude.
Noah: You know what? I'm working day and night so I can get up in front of thousands of people and have them believe I'm Eli Love and not me -- and that's what you wanted!
Patrick: I see --
Noah: It's going to be over in a little while anyway, so what's the big deal?
Patrick: This is exactly what she was worried about.
Noah: Oh -- you know, Robin thinks that our relationship is a potential walk down the aisle. It's not. Anna and I are just having fun.
Patrick: You're living the dream, Dad -- both of you -- Eli Love, the never-ending party.
Noah: So you say you think I'm having too much fun?
Patrick: I think you're drinking again. Are you?
Carly: My bodyguard and I were deciding where to go for dinner when this man burst into the room and he started shooting. It was terrifying. We're lucky to be alive.
Officer: Do you know of anyone who would want to kill you?
Carly: Yes -- my ex-husband, Lorenzo Alcazar.
Dr. Julian: Ms. Howard's respiratory functions are still dangerous low. I need more information to make a proper diagnosis.
Sonny: My two boys were playing, and the ball went into the pond. I guess it was on Kate’s property. My younger -- my youngest son went in to get the ball, his foot got stuck. Kate rescued him, got him out. They were fine by the time I -- I got to them, and I took my boys home. But I tell you what -- I'm talking to her, and she just collapsed right in front of me, barely breathing.
Dr. Julian: What about preexisting conditions? Does the lady have any hobbies -- like drugs?
Sonny: No, no, no, absolutely not. Well, hold -- okay, you know what? There's a -- a week ago, she took some -- she took some pills by -- by mistake from her boss. She thought it was aspirin, but it was an aphrodisiac.
Dr. Julian: Did she have a reaction to it -- aside from the obvious one, that is? My interest is purely professional, Mr. Corinthos.
Sonny: I know.
Dr. Julian: I'm trying to save the woman's life.
Sonny: No, she was -- she was fine once they wore off.
Dr. Julian: Anything else you can tell me that might have some bearing?
Sonny: She can't swim -- unless she's learned in the past 20 years.
Dr. Julian: Her lungs are clear, so --
Sonny: You know, I thought it could be something toxic in the pond. I called my nanny, and she said that my son's fine.
Dr. Julian: Epiphany, tell the lab to put a rush on the blood work ASAP.
Epiphany: You got it, Doctor.
Sonny: What are you doing, Doctor?
Dr. Julian: I think you might be right about something toxic being in the water.
Sonny: Why are you checking her legs?
Dr. Julian: That's why. Look. See that? That's a snake bite, obviously poisonous.
Sonny: Okay -- oh, man --- is there anything you can give her to counteract the venom?
Dr. Julian: Well, that's why we got to wait for the blood work, so we know --
Sonny: No, we can't wait, because if we wait, she'll die.
Dr. Julian: Well, if we guess wrong, we could kill her.
Lucky: So have Jason and Elizabeth slept together since that night in august?
Sam: I don't know, Lucky.
Lucky: Sam, what's your guess?
Sam: I don't know. My guess is a few months ago, if you would've asked me if I would've ever thought that Jason would cheat on me or lie to me, I would've said no. Sometimes when you're in love, you see what you want to see, plain and simple.
Lucky: Elizabeth had me fooled. Now I'm starting to question everything she said.
Sam: Jason and Elizabeth do have something in common. They are able to look you in the eye and say something so sincerely, you are certain they're telling you the truth. But now I look back on some things that Jason told me, and I just --
Lucky: What? What? Like what?
Sam: I don't -- he used to go out at night, and I wouldn't ask -- dare I -- where he was going, and he obviously wouldn't offer the information. I would just assume he was going out on his motorcycle, taking a ride into the country. But now I think about it, and I just -- I don't know. Who knows? I don't know.
Lucky: Yeah, Elizabeth -- yeah, she -- she would work late hours, and I -- I never checked, or whether she would come straight home from the hospital.
Sam: I -- I do know that Jason and Elizabeth have spent some time meeting in secret.
Elizabeth: What are you doing here?
Sam: I came to apologize to Lucky for keeping the secret that you and Jason had slept together.
Elizabeth: Oh, we can work things out for ourselves, thanks.
Lucky: Sam was only trying to help.
Sam: Yeah, I thought he deserved to know the truth.
Elizabeth: Well, you're not exactly an objective third party. Now, I would like you to leave my home.
Sam: I guess not.
Lucky: Elizabeth --
Sam: You know what? No. I wish this year had never happened, but I will settle for being treated with respect. Lucky, I am truly sorry for letting this go on as long as it did.
Elizabeth: Oh --
Elizabeth: Ooh, that woman is so transparent.
Lucky: Yeah, if you mean she's being honest? Yeah, I think she is.
Elizabeth: No, Lucky, she didn't have to come over here. She did it to make things worse.
Lucky: Yeah, and where were you at -- seeing Jason?
Elizabeth: Yes. Lucky, wait –
Anna: I promise you, there is not a chance in hell that this is going to turn into something serious.
Robin: Okay, how do you know that?
Anna: My job -- it takes me around the globe. And if I haven't moved here for you, I'm hardly about to settle into a relationship with a neurosurgeon in Port Charles.
Robin: It's just another reason to move here.
Anna: I'm not putting my heart on the line, okay? Love is exhausting -- the highs and the gut-wrenching lows, not to mention the tailspin when it all falls apart. It's not a ride I want to go on, not now.
Robin: Who are you kidding? You're a danger junkie. You don't do anything halfway.
Anna: I can show a little restraint when I need to.
Robin: Oh, right. That's why you dropped in for a visit by rappelling through our skylight.
Anna: I fail to see what rappelling has to do with Eli Love.
Robin: You mean Noah Drake?
Anna: Hmm. You know what I mean.
Robin: Yes, I do. You're getting a rush out of transforming Noah into Eli, and Noah is getting a rush by unleashing is inner rock star. So don't tell me I'm overreacting. There are so many things that can go wrong with this.
Noah: You know, I've had a liver transplant. I'd be crazy to start drinking again.
Patrick: That wasn't exactly an answer.
Noah: I don't have a death wish, Patrick. You know, I'm having fun, I'm sober -- the two aren't mutually exclusive.
Patrick: I'm glad you're having fun, and I'm not asking you to stop.
Noah: Then just let it go. You know, don't worry so much.
Patrick: Well, I am worried that you're going to lose your balance along the way.
Noah: I'm happy. I haven't felt this good in I can't remember when. You know, I mean, after I lost your mom, I just didn't think I could go on. You know, I hated myself and I wanted the world to feel the same way, and the only peace I could find was -- was in alcohol.
Patrick: Until you needed a new liver.
Noah: Yeah -- proverbial blessing in disguise. You know, but I -- I needed to stop drinking. I needed to find a light at the end of the tunnel, something to get me through the day that wasn't alcohol. I have you to thank for that, and, you know, my work at general hospital. And now this -- man, I can't tell you how great it feels to have women interested in me.
Patrick: Yeah -- when they ask you to do shots out of their underage navels.
Noah: I'm not going to go that far.
Patrick: Dad, the point is, though, this -- this isn't the kind of attention women give to a good-looking, obnoxious, abrasive neurosurgeon. They think you're Eli Love, the famous rock star, and they're throwing themselves at you. Now, that kind of power is like a drug in itself. I wouldn't blame you for getting sucked in.
Noah: Well, I'm not giving up my day job, if that's what you're thinking.
Patrick: Well, there's a start.
Noah: You know, and -- and I'm not chasing groupies, you know? I mean, I -- I'm working my butt off so that I can get the moves, you know, and -- and the songs down so I don't make a fool of myself when I get onstage.
Patrick: Okay. But what happens when the concert's over?
Noah: I go back to being, you know -- what did you say? -- "The obnoxious, abrasive neurosurgeon" that everyone's come to know and love. You know, until then, I'll take advantage a little bit of my genetic good fortune, and I'm having an incredible time with a really, really sexy woman.
Patrick: Okay, so what happens to her when the concert's over?
Noah: I mean, I -- I don't see a future for Anna and me, you know? I mean, apart from the concert, our lives are completely incompatible. You know, so -- so tell Robin to quit freaking out -- it's not going to go anywhere.
Carly: I was only married to Lorenzo briefly, but he was obsessed with me. He even kidnapped me and kept me prisoner on his yacht.
Officer: I'm sorry you had to suffer.
Carly: Thank you, Captain. You're very kind.
Captain: What leads you to believe your ex-husband is after you now?
Carly: Back in the states, they think Lorenzo is dead, and an innocent man is being tried for his murder. But they never found the body, and I was relieved. I thought my nightmare was over, but then I started to wonder if Lorenzo just wanted to disappear, so I came down here to find out for myself.
Captain: And what have you found?
Carly: I saw Lorenzo Alcazar, alive and well, here in Caracas -- and he wants to shut me up. He sent a gunman here to abduct me, and he would've, if my bodyguard hadn't protected me.
Captain: The gunman was a known criminal. The evidence clearly indicates he broke in and your bodyguard acted in self-defense. Rest assured, there will be a full investigation.
Carly: Thank you. Thank you, Captain, I feel so much safer now.
Captain: We'll search for Mr. Alcazar at his properties and let you know what we find.
Carly: Bless you.
Jerry: Buenos noches.
Captain: Buenos noches.
Jerry: Oh, oh. Damn, you are good.
Sonny: What's going on? Is the anti-venom working?
Dr. Julian: Yeah, she's starting to respond. Her pressure's coming back up.
Sonny: You -- you think she's going to wake up soon?
Dr. Julian: It's hard to tell. You know, she's not out of the woods yet. We'll monitor her closely and hope for the best, okay?
Sonny: Thank you, Doctor.
Dr. Julian: Yeah.
Epiphany: So you've known her for a long time? Oh, you said she didn't know how to swim 20 years ago.
Sonny: She doesn't really want anybody to know about her past.
Epiphany: Do I look like a gossip to you?
Sonny: I tried to teach her how to swim a long time ago. She was terrified of the water. I guess when she was a kid, she was -- got stuck in an undertow, and she never got over the fear of being helpless and not being able to breathe. So we -- we used to go out to Coney Island. And I'd go way out in the ocean, and she'd be ankle deep. And I'd say, "Come on, let's go, let's go out. Come on, come out with me." She would refuse, and, uh -- you know what? My son was in danger; she jumped right in the water to save him.
Epiphany: Sounds like someone worth getting to know again.
Sonny: Hey. You are in the hospital.
Kate: What happened?
Sonny: You ready for this? You went into the pond, and you got bit by a snake.
Kate: A snake?
Sonny: You were in bad shape, I called the paramedics. They rushed you to the hospital, and they gave you medicine to counteract the venom.
Kate: Oh -- wow. I'm sorry I missed all the excitement.
Sonny: I'm glad you're okay.
Kate: Huh. Maybe I should I take it as -- as a warning and move back to Manhattan, hmm -- where all the snakes walk around on two feet and the venom is metaphorical?
Sonny: Well, that would be the smart thing to do. I mean, you know, your business is back there and everything you worked so hard for your whole life.
Kate: Yeah. Port Charles is so full of complications.
Sonny: I could probably list a hundred reasons why you should go back. But I don't want you to leave.
Patrick: Do you think your mom knows the difference between my dad and Eli Love?
Robin: Are you kidding me? She's completely carried away, and who knows what will happen when the concert is over, when Noah goes back to being Noah. It could be a big mess.
Patrick: So you obviously didn't get through to her.
Robin: Does the phrase "brick wall" mean anything to you?
Patrick: So, what now? What, do we just let them be?
Robin: Not let it affect us -- if that's possible.
Patrick: Right. Okay, so whatever happens between our parents, we do not take sides. Agreed?
Robin: Agreed. And if they are not going to take any of our advice and do what they want anyway, maybe my mother has a point.
Patrick: Yeah? What's that?
Robin: They're having fun. What's the harm?
Patrick: They have been working really hard. Personal lives are pretty much nonexistent. I guess we can just let them have fun. I mean, who are we to rain on their parade?
[Knock on door]
Noah: Can I come in, or am I off-limits?
Anna: Well, if you are brave enough to show up, I'm brave enough to let you in.
Noah: No good deed goes unpunished, you know?
Noah: Wow. Am I interrupting something?
Anna: It's my standard equipment check -- I do it every night.
Noah: Well. I guess you can't be too careful, huh?
Anna: You need your scalpels sharp. I like my gun loaded.
Anna: So, you and Patrick sort things out?
Noah: Oh -- oh, God, yeah.
Noah: You know, when -- when he first came to me with this -- you know, this idea to impersonate Eli --
Anna: Mm- hmm.
Noah: My first, you know, reaction was no. And then he kept on, and I said I'll do it for the good of the cause. And now he says that I'm getting carried away, after all my hard work.
Anna: Yeah, that's what Robin said about me, too. Ahem.
Noah: He said it's taking over my life.
Anna: She says I'm transferring my Eli Love crush over to you.
Noah: Well, that's not the worst thing in the world, is it?
Anna: She says it's going to end in disaster.
Noah: I think she worries too much.
Diane: Well, do you want the optimistic spin or the unpleasant reality?
Jason: Just tell me where we stand.
Diane: Ric has done a very persuasive job of making it look like Elizabeth has been covering for you.
Jason: Ric never got over Elizabeth, and it kills him that she was with me.
Diane: Yeah, well, be that as it may, Elizabeth has now perjured herself by lying on the stand and saying that you are not her child's father.
Jason: But you don't think Ric bought it?
Diane: He seemed to. But my guess is it won't take him long before he decides he wants it verified by a paternity test.
Jason: You see, this -- this is the problem, Diane -- it has nothing to do with the trial at all. You need to tell the judge that it's irrelevant!
Diane: Jason, of course I will do everything I can, but Ric is going to argue that if Elizabeth would lie about that, she would lie about your activities on the day Lorenzo Alcazar disappeared. Now, Ric could get a court order to have a paternity test on little Jacob Martin. "Jacob Martin" -- I'm -- I'm sorry, Jason, but Elizabeth just was not subtle when she chose that name. A paternity test would prove that the boy is your son. Ric would score even more points for his case. You will be that much closer to a prison cell -- and now Elizabeth could be charged with perjury.
Kate: I have no plans on moving back to Manhattan -- at least, not for now.
Sonny: Well, there's no need to talk about it right now. You should -- you should rest.
Kate: Oh, God -- bitten by a snake. I can hear the competition laughing now.
Sonny: Did you ever learn how to swim?
Kate: No. Ridiculous, huh?
Sonny: No, but you just -- you jumped -- you went into the water --
Kate: Well --
Sonny: For Morgan.
Kate: Sonny, the water wasn't that deep.
Sonny: You saved my son's life, and I tell you what -- I'll never forget that.
Kate: Do you remember when we used to go to Coney Island?
Sonny: Hmm -- yeah.
Kate: I wouldn't get my feet wet. And you were out there -- you were out there swimming in the waves -- oh, my God, I wish I could swim like you.
Sonny: And I wish I could play arcade like you because you -- remember the -- the ball -- we'd throw the ball and the pins would go down? Yeah, yeah.
Kate: Oh, I think that the prize was a giant bulldog.
Sonny: Oh, I wanted that bulldog so -- I must've tried every dollar that I had, and I could not get that thing.
Kate: My hero.
Sonny: But then you go up --
[Sonny imitates strike]
Sonny: Grand prize right there.
Kate: Beginner's luck.
Sonny: You always were a good competitor.
Kate: Takes one to know one.
Sonny: We had some great times, didn't we?
Kate: Hmm -- yeah, the best.
Sonny: I don't know if you know this, but when we broke up –
Robin: I can't relax.
Patrick: Okay, I think you need to give your mom a little more credit here.
Robin: For what, for being stubborn?
Patrick: Your mother is a very capable, independent woman; she can take care of herself.
Robin: Okay, when it comes to international espionage, yes. When it comes to romance, she's not as good as you might think.
Patrick: Robin, with all due respect, you have no idea what your mom does when she's working.
Robin: My mother has a big heart. When she cares about someone, it's difficult for her to protect herself.
Patrick: And she told you to stay out of it, just like my dad told me to stay out of it, so who are we to disobey our parents?
Robin: But they're acting like teenagers.
Patrick: They're having fun.
Patrick: Remember fun?
Robin: I'm sorry, I just -- I -- I can't stop thinking about my mother.
Patrick: Great. So as long as our parents are sleeping together, we're not?
Robin: Good night.
Anna: Sorry. I can’t.
Anna: I keep thinking about Robin.
Noah: But I thought we agreed not to think about our kids.
Anna: I know, I know, I know, but, you know, she's -- she's upset, and she -- she kind of brought up a few pertinent things.
Noah: Really? Name, you know, just one.
Anna: I don't know, I don't know. But her face keeps popping into my head, and it's -- it's just not working for me, do you know what I mean?
Noah: Well, can I get it working?
Anna: I'm sorry. I can't do this tonight, I can’t.
Noah: So I -- are you saying that we can't sleep together until your daughter says it's okay?
Anna: Oh -- I'll call you tomorrow?
Carly: Could you stop opening your wound? I'm getting sick of being your nurse.
Jerry: But you're so good at it. Ow!
Carly: Next time you kill someone, can't you use a bullet instead of a ballpoint pen? It's gross.
Jerry: You have to admit, it was pretty effective.
Carly: It was disgusting.
Jerry: I see improvisation as a crucial survival tool -- you're quite skilled at it yourself.
Carly: Yeah, well, I did what I had to do.
Jerry: You were brilliant. The police captain was charmed beyond belief by your inventive story.
Carly: Let's hope.
Jerry: Yes, and it's a step forward toward -- towards the illusion that Alcazar is still alive and well -- agh.
Carly: And that means Jason can't be guilty of killing him. What's step two?
Jerry: Well, you're going to be glad that I'm around here, because you'll need a real bodyguard for what comes up next.
Diane: Jason, look, Ric may be unwilling to prosecute Elizabeth for perjury if he still harbors feelings for her.
Jason: Okay, now, trust me; Ric will do anything to put me away.
Diane: Okay. At this point, Elizabeth Spencer is the least of your worries. Ric is building a very compelling image of you as a professional killer. And that videotape of you arriving at the PCPD, grabbing a gun, and firing at the shooters was very effective for him -- and very bad for us.
Jason: What are you -- it was a tape -- it was self-defense.
Diane: Oh, I know it was self-defense. The point is the jury watched as you killed three men with speed and efficiency -- despite being handcuffed and shackled. You are trained in the use of firearms. The jury now knows that. Add to that the fact that you have no alibi for the time that Lorenzo Alcazar disappeared, and Ric has even more damning evidence on the way -- the audiotape of Lorenzo Alcazar saying your name, then a shot rings out -- virtually identifying you as the killer.
Jason: Okay, can you find a way to discredit the evidence?
Diane: I think, at this point, it will be more effective to discredit Ric himself -- find a way to undermine his credibility with the jury. Nevertheless, there may come a time when I advise you to accept a plea bargain.
Jason: No, that's not -- Diane, that is not going to happen. There's no --
Diane: Jason, listen to me, listen to me. I cannot guarantee you an acquittal. If you pass up a plea bargain, and the jury convicts you of murder one, you go to prison for the rest of your life.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Carly: I didn't come down here to help you steal Lorenzo’s money.
Diane: Keep your anger in check no matter what transpires.
Elizabeth: Jason's attorney wants to put me back on the stand this morning.
Lucky: Are there going to be any other secrets coming out?
