Spinelli: I -- the jackal must have misunderstood. The -- right? There's no way that you just announced that you're -- you would be willing to allow the unworthy one to get carnal knowledge of your loveliness.

Lulu: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to hurt your feelings.

Spinelli: You're serious? You would allow the simian one to --

Lulu: Well, Logan and I have -- we've been spending time together, it's different now. I feel like, you know, we know each other. We're in a different place.

Spinelli: No. Okay, no -- no need -- no need to further explain. Um -- ha. At the very least, the jackal is, um, pleased that you'd be comfortable enough to share your heart's desires. But I feel that I'm obliged to do the same and tell you that there is no way that you can sleep with Logan Hayes.

[Knock on door]

Maxie: Coop -- oh, my God, you won't believe what just happened.

Coop: Yeah, I can see what happened.

Maxie: No, I know what you're thinking, and you're wrong.

Coop: I'm thinking I've been blind for weeks.

Maxie: No, Coop, wait, please! Just let me explain.

Kate: You have no real reason to arrest me.

Mac: You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one --

Sonny: Hold on, Mac --

Mac: One will be appointed for you.

Sonny: Come on, look, I've known this woman. Kate Howard is my -- is my neighbor. There's no way she would break the law.

Jerry: What is it?

Carly: Okay, this guard's a pain. He takes his job way too seriously.

Jerry: Oh, allow me. Good day, Officer. Washington asked me to watch the proceedings, and I need my associate with me.

Ofc. Riley: Go ahead.

Jerry: Thank you.

Ric: Your Honor, defense can't just magically produce a piece of paper and call it evidence.

Diane: Your Honor, we have had investigators searching for further evidence because, unlike the prosecution, we believe in getting the facts.

Ric: Yes --

Judge: Counselors will remember where they are.

Diane: If it pleases this court -- with evidence proving that Lorenzo Alcazar is alive -- I move that all charges against my client be dropped.

Mac: Do you understand these rights as I've read them to you?

Kate: This is ridiculous. Yes, I understand them.

Sonny: Come on, Mac. Kate Howard -- she's a high-profile editor in chief of a top magazine. You know, she would not break the law.

Mac: Ms. Howard has a prior, and celebrities are not above the law.

Sonny: I understand that, Mac. I know -- look, this is about Ric. She slapped him once, and he wanted to get back at me. But, you know, everything's cleared up.

Mac: The prior I'm talking about is reckless driving, hit-and-run. And earlier today, she did it again.

Sonny: You have evidence?

Mac: Her car is parked in the hotel garage. The condition of the car pretty much says it all. The damage is consistent with sideswiping another vehicle -- in this case, a police cruiser. You see, that's the reckless driving part. But not stopping -- that's the hit-and-run.

Kate: I have nothing to say until my lawyer is present.

Maxie: I -- I told you that Logan couldn't be trusted, but you wouldn't listen to me, and I wanted to prove that I was right. Naturally, I was.

Logan: Oh, come on, Maxie. How stupid do you think the guy is?

Coop: Shut up!

Logan: Huh. Look, man, your girlfriend came down here and she jumped on me, all right?

Maxie: What? Why would I kiss a jerk like you when I have someone great like Coop?

Logan: Gee, I don't know, Maxie. Why would you?

Maxie: You are a liar. Coop, you have to believe me.

Coop: I can't do this.

Maxie: No, wait, please! Okay, I know I do stupid stuff all the time to try and prove that I'm right, and I shouldn't have come here, but I don't want to be with Logan! You're the only person that matters to me.

Coop: I got to get out of here before I do something I regret.

[Door slams]

Logan: Well, that was a nice little relationship while it lasted.

Maxie: I hate you!

Logan: So does that mean that the deal is still on with Lulu, or are you too broken up now over Coop, that he's seen the real you?

Maxie: I'm not giving up on Coop. You can go to hell.

[Door opens and slams]

Lulu: I know you think you are protecting me, but other than your personal concern, there is no reason that I shouldn't be with Logan, unless there's something that you know. Spinelli?

Spinelli: Uh -- a secret so dark, I can -- I can barely form the words.

Lulu: What? Tell me. What?

Spinelli: Okay, six weeks -- six weeks ago, when I was, um, confirming the unworthy one's paternity on your behalf, I came across another hidden truth -- about the unworthy one's most worthy mother. A mother you are all too familiar with, and -- uh -- look, um, trust me when I tell you -- no, no, it's -- it's too shocking.

Lulu: No, spill it.

Spinelli: There's a rea-- there's a reason that you and the knucklescraper can never, ever have intimate knowledge of each other. It's because you and he are --

Lulu: Stop it! Oh -- listen to you, Spinelli. Please tell me that you are not making up some disgusting story about Logan being my brother so that I won't be with him. Because that would be a horrible lie and not the act of my best friend.

Spinelli: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I'm -- I'm sorry. It was a -- it was a ploy. It was born of -- of desperation, okay? I'm sorry. I'm mortified. I'm mortified. Look, I beg your forgiveness, please.

Lulu: Of course I forgive you, you're my friend.

Spinelli: Thanks. Okay. Well, then, as your friend, I just -- I have to say, the Jackal has grave concerns, okay? He -- Logan is most unworthy.

Sam: Hey.

Lucky: What's up?

Sam: Have a seat. Okay, can you think of one single reason why Elizabeth would want to meet with Alexis?

Lucky: No, I'd have to ask her.

Sam: Okay -- no. Save your breath, I already know. So, according to my mother, Elizabeth trashed me, and she asked my mom to keep me away from you and your kids.

Lucky: What?

Sam: Can you believe that? Like I -- like me -- I'm some sort of a threat to her?

Lucky: Elizabeth has no right dictating who I speak with.

Sam: Yeah, Lucky, this is the problem. Things have been sort of difficult between my mother and I since the whole Ric situation, and I just feel like if she goes around spreading these rumors and stirring things up, I just -- I'm really worried it's going to make things worse.

Lucky: I'm sorry. I know you must be going through hell right now, and you don't need Elizabeth making things worse.

Nikolas: All right, I have to try and look at this from Lucky's point of view for a moment. I mean, it has to be difficult for him to know where the lies even end here. He feels totally undermined.

Elizabeth: I lied to Lucky to protect him, just like you did. And when we agreed to get married, there was nothing to be gained by telling him that I had slept with Jason.

Nikolas: Or maybe you were just afraid to tell him?

Elizabeth: Of course I was afraid. He's a recovering addict. If I had told him, it could've ruined everything. So I made a choice to bury it.

Nikolas: But Lansing dug it back up.

Elizabeth: And I know right now it seems like it was a really bad idea, but at the time, it made perfect sense.

Nikolas: No, I agree. I agree with that, but Lucky has a right to be angry here at both of us, and us telling him that he shouldn't be isn't helping the matter.

Elizabeth: And I'm not going to deny his feelings. But I won't let him vent all over me with my boys in the house. And I will not raise my children surrounded by anger.

Nikolas: What does that mean? Does that mean if Lucky doesn't forgive you on your timetable, you're going to pack up your kids and leave again?

Carly: Jason --

Jerry: Don't draw attention.

Ric: Your Honor, this level of grandstanding is tantamount to a lie. We need experts to evaluate this so-called evidence to determine its authenticity before it's admitted into the trial.

Judge: The court calls a recess to consider this new information. The jury will proceed to the jury room, and I'll see counsel in chambers.

Diane: I don't know where this came from, and I don't want to know. You just wish me luck. This may be the best shot we've got.

Carly: We did it. You're going to be out by dinner, and I'm buying.

Jason: Why would you risk going anywhere with him?

Mac: Bring the car to the front door.

Sonny: I can get a lawyer here in 20 minutes.

Kate: No, don't be silly, Sonny, I have it handled.

Marty: Ms. Howard, I'm so sorry. Somebody must've tipped off the press. There's a bunch of paparazzi in front.

Kate: Well, I can't have them see me like this.

Marty: Security is trying to rope off an area, but there's the issue of freedom of the press.

Kate: Don't lecture me about the press -- I am the press. They're going to eat me for lunch.

Sonny: Can you get her through the underground garage, Mac?

Mac: Look, if I give Ms. Howard special treatment, it'll look like the department's playing favorites.

Sonny: Can you at least take off her cuffs, Mac?

Mac: No matter how many times you ask, the answer's no.

Clarice: Ms. Howard? I was just bringing your outfit to --

Kate: Clarice, there is a change of plans. Uh, tell London to postpone the call, and then call Henry Sinclair.

Clarice: Your attorney? Oh -- right. Of course. Right away. Do you need your water?

Mac: There's a drinking fountain at the station. Let's go.

Reporter: Ms. Howard? Is it true that you left the scene of a crime?

Sonny: Okay, listen, keep your head down. I'll see you on the other side, okay?

Reporter: Ms. Howard?

Sonny: You can do this, all right?

Kate: Okay.

Reporter: Ms. Howard? Hey, Ms. Howard?

Second reporter: Have you been arrested? First reporter: Ms. Howard, did you leave the scene of a crime?

Lulu: You see Logan as the arrogant guy looking for trouble, like how he was when he first came to town, but there is another side to him. I've seen it, and, actually, we have a lot in common.

Spinelli: No, no, no, that's what he wants you to think, okay? The knucklescraper is toying with you. He's just telling you what he thinks your blond heart wants to hear.

Lulu: I am not that naive. Do you really think I am so insecure that I'm not going to hop in the sack with any guy who offers? Unless you think Logan is using me, which is equally as insulting.

Spinelli: Please, fair one, okay? No disrespect or insult was intended, okay? You are the only guardian of your heart. I can only work the perimeter.

Lulu: I have to go.

Lucky: Lulu?

Lulu: Everybody needs to take care of themselves and leave me alone.

Lucky: Lulu --

Sam: Hey, hey, hey, you want me to go after her?

Lucky: No, she's right. I've got no right offering advice to anyone.

Sam: Oh, Lucky, I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I kind of feel like this is my fault. If I hadn't asked you to come here, you just -- you're going through so much already.

Lucky: Hey, I'm glad you did. If Elizabeth caused any more problems between you and your mother, I'm -- I'm really sorry.

Sam: Well, thank you, but it's not your fault.

Lucky: I should -- you know, I should go. You were probably sitting here getting some peace and quiet before I showed up, so --

Sam: Wait, Lucky. Um -- thanks for coming by. I just -- you know, I kind of feel like you and I, we're both going through so much pain right now. I don't know. I just kind of feel like we understand each other.

Nikolas: Look, I'm sure that Lucky is worried that if he acts in a way that you deem irrational that you're going to take his family away. I mean, what -- what does he do with that?

Elizabeth: We're supposed to work this out as adults.

Nikolas: I know, but he's not angry that you just slept with Jason. It's the fact that you lied about it for months and then pretended that he was just a friend.

Elizabeth: He is a friend.

Nikolas: Okay, so let's say if -- if Lucky wanted to have a friendship with Maxie -- met her in the park, visit her at work -- how would that go over with you?

Elizabeth: Okay, here's the difference. Maxie was feeding Lucky pills and tried to ruin his life. Jason has always supported me and, in fact, saved my life and Jake’s.

Nikolas: And it kills Lucky that Jason is your hero, and now he finds out that you slept with him and lied about it? I mean -- Elizabeth, he's angry, and if you don't allow him to -- to own that, it'll be harder for the both of you.

Elizabeth: Nobody needs to tell me how much I've hurt my husband. And nobody will fight harder than me to keep our family together.

Jason: You were crazy to go to Venezuela. You could've been killed.

Carly: I told you I was going to save you, and I did.

Jason: And I told you to stay away from Jerry.

Carly: How about a simple "thank you"? Look, I'm sorry, but he's the one that proved that Lorenzo is still alive.

Jason: There is no proof. It's fabricated.

Carly: Well so what? It's a court of law. No one cares about the truth. All that matters is what the jury thinks.

Bailiff: All rise. The court is back in session, in the matter of the state of New York vs. Jason Morgan. Please be seated.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: Having reviewed the new evidence and hearing arguments, the court concludes that the evidence can be admitted and considered, but does not negate the charges. So these proceedings will continue.

Carly: That's crazy!

Judge: Sit down.

Carly: Your Honor, Ric Lansing is trying to railroad an innocent man!

Mac: The press made it over here before we did.

Kate: Yes, and I'm sure your diligent officers ticketed every single one of them for speeding.

Mac: Is it like that wherever you go?

Kate: Well, usually, it's more along the lines of, "who are you wearing?"

Mac: Thank you. Well, not this time. This time, you're going to make national news.

Kate: Yes, if only people were interested in real criminals. But drug dealers and gang violence, it's old news. Yes, apparently, a simple traffic violation by a celebrity of sorts is far more interesting.

Mac: Why don't we talk about your traffic violation?

Kate: Uh, let's not, until my lawyer is present.

Mac: I can get you a lawyer.

Kate: No. You will honor my constitutional right, or I will sue you and your entire department.

Sonny: I'd like a word with Ms. Howard if that's okay, Mac.

Mac: Be my guest.

Kate: Thank you for the loan. It's beautiful. Italian wool?

Sonny: You did it, didn't you?

Kate: It was an accident.

Spinelli's voice: "Dear fair friend, in your tortured confusion, your delicate ears cannot hear the Jackal's insights, so I pray you will recognize them in this epistle. Though I have no empirical evidence to prove the unworthy one is -- well, unworthy -- in my humble opinion, Logan Hayes is a half-witted, scruffy, nerf herder who doesn't deserve your toenail clippings, let alone the chance to know you in the biblical sense."

Singer: What makes what makes the sun go down on me

Maxie: Coop -- you can't shut down on me. You have to let me explain.

Coop: You said everything there was to say at Logan's place.

Maxie: I only let Logan kiss me to prove that you can't trust him and that he's a liar and a sleaze. It was a test, and he failed.

Coop: Stop it, Maxie.

Maxie: If I lose you over this, I'm not going to get over it.

Singer: When you fall I'll know better

Lulu: Why aren't you back at court?

Elizabeth: They're finished with my testimony.

Lulu: Um, I thought Lucky would be here. I kind of blew him off at Kelly’s and I feel bad about it.

Elizabeth: Well, he's not here. I'm sure you heard what happened on the stand between me and Jason and how I kept it from your brother all these months.

Lulu: Look, we all have problems, and we all make lousy choices, and it's nobody's right to judge. It seems like as soon as you care about someone, you're asking for complications.

Nikolas: Thanks for meeting me here.

Lucky: Neutral territory.

Nikolas: I'm here looking at office space, Lucky. You know, I don't need neutral territory.

Lucky: Come on, you didn't call me for advice on real estate. I'm guessing you and my wife have some strategy on how to deal with me?

Nikolas: Look, I'm on your side, okay?

Lucky: Yeah, I wish I had a dollar for every time you said that.

Nikolas: All right, I'm going to tell you the same thing I told Elizabeth. You need to stop blaming each other and start fighting for your family, or you will lose them.

Carly: Your Honor, I was once married to Lorenzo Alcazar, and I would swear under oath that he hated Jason Morgan. He was passionate about destroying Jason, and if the new evidence proves that Lorenzo tried to frame Jason, then it is your responsibility to dismiss this case right now!

Ric: Your Honor, these are closed proceedings. This woman has not been sworn in, and she has no business being in this court!

Carly: Yeah, you wish, you pig.

[Judge pounds gavel]

Judge: Order, order! Please, everyone, be quiet! Who is she?

Diane: Carly Corinthos-Jacks, Your Honor. I will be calling her as a witness for the defense.

Judge: She'll have an opportunity to testify then, and you'll have an opportunity to present your new evidence that Lorenzo Alcazar is alive.

Diane: Thank you, Your Honor.

Ric: I object, Your Honor, that's prejudicial.

Judge: Counselors, approach the bench.

Diane: This just might work.

Sonny: What did Mac mean when he said you had a previous rap?

Kate: It was an accident.

Sonny: Okay, hitting a cop car once is an accident, but twice?

Kate: It wasn't a police car the first time. It was a boring, oversized, American-made sedan.

[Kate sighs]

Kate: Okay -- last year, I was in the Hamptons, and there was a mutiny at the magazine, and I had to get back to Manhattan before half of the staff was poached by the competition. And so I was driving a little over the speed limit, and I didn't have my headset and I was on the phone -- I was obviously upset and distracted -- and I sideswiped a parked car -- no one was in it. Look, the -- the whole price of the car was less than my handbag.

Sonny: So after you -- that happened, you left a note?

Kate: I -- no, I didn’t. I --

Sonny: You took off? Okay, obviously, you got caught.

Kate: Yes, obviously.

Sonny: Yes.

Kate: I had six months suspended license. My lawyer was able to keep it out of the media that time, but he advised me to stay clear of the Hamptons for a while, which is why I bought my weekend home in Port Charles.

Sonny: So -- okay. This looks pretty bad for you. But think about me -- you know, now I have a -- a fugitive for a neighbor.

[Knock on door]

Logan: Ahem. I don't want to fight with you.

Coop: Stay away from Maxie. It's not a request, and this is the last time I'm going to say it.

Logan: Great -- so you took her word over mine? That's fine, but you tell her to do the same thing.

Coop: I'm telling you.

Logan: Look, man, Maxie's trouble.

Coop: I saw what you did to Cody Paul. I never thought you'd try it on me.

Logan: Coop, listen, all right? I -- I understand why you don't trust me. You know what? I almost don't blame you. I made a mistake. It was a dumb-ass thing to do, giving in to Maxie. All right, but, please, don't tell Lulu. I don't – I don't want her to know.

Lulu: So Lucky just took off?

Elizabeth: Nikolas is looking for him.

Lulu: Why aren't you?

Elizabeth: The boys are asleep upstairs, and I know that Lucky needs some time to himself. He'll come home when he's ready.

Lulu: Yeah, he will, and you need to see him more than I do, so I'm going to go.

Elizabeth: Lulu, wait. Since we've had issues of our own -- now that this whole secret has come out, if you want to talk about it, I'd rather just deal with it right now.

Lulu: Lucky was in a lot of trouble. He was hooked on pills and he was cheating on you, and sometimes I think it was Lucky that I was really mad at. But you're not supposed to get mad at an addict, you're supposed to be compassionate and have patience. So when you left him, I freaked out, and I took it out on you, and I probably shouldn't have.

Elizabeth: It's okay -- he's your brother and you love him.

Lulu: But I get why you kept it a secret from him. I saw how Lucky was when Jake was kidnapped. He was spiraling out of control. Obviously, he's not as strong as he'd like to think.

Elizabeth: Yeah, that was a pretty horrible time.

Lulu: You're the closest thing that I have to a sister, Elizabeth, and I would hate to lose that. And I know underneath all of that hurt and anger, Lucky still loves you.

Ric: I -- I move to admit the alleged evidence now so that I can prove it false and we can move on. At the moment, it is the elephant in the middle of the room. As long as the jury is distracted by it, they need to see it for themselves.

Judge: Ms. Miller?

Diane: I have no problem with that, Your Honor.

Judge: Defense will briefly disclose the evidence -- and I do mean briefly, Ms. Miller. Don't take advantage of my good faith.

Diane: Absolutely not, Your Honor. Defense exhibit A -- bank transfers from Lorenzo Alcazar's personal bank accounts, dated days after his supposed death.

Ric: Your Honor, I'd like to remind the jury that I plan to refute these obviously forged documents till I've had adequate time to review them and also turn them over to experts, as well.

Judge: So noted.

Ric: Thank you.

Diane: Defense exhibit B, Your Honor -- photographs of Lorenzo Alcazar leaving one of his homes outside of Caracas, Venezuela. He is under constant government surveillance because of his suspected activities as an arms dealer. In one of those photographs, you will see Lorenzo Alcazar arriving at a local bank. Those are time-stamped by a closed-circuit surveillance camera, dated two days ago.

Ric: Your Honor, once again, I'd like to remind the jury that I intend to refute --

Judge: Yes, Mr. Lansing, we get your point. You'll have the opportunity to study the evidence all you want, and copies will be provided to the jury, pending further verification.

Ric: Wha-- your -- I object, Your Honor --

Judge: Mr. Lansing, you asked for it to be admitted. This is now evidence in a murder trial. The jury will be allowed to see it -- that's my ruling. This court is adjourned until tomorrow.

Kate: I am not a fugitive and I don't appreciate being characterized as one.

Sonny: I'm just trying to lighten things up.

Kate: Well, m sure that being handcuffed and arrested is just another day at the office for you, but it is not business as usual in my world.

Sonny: All right, look, look, I am -- okay, I apologize for being insensitive.

[Kate sighs]

Sonny: That wasn't what I was trying to do.

Kate: The whole purpose of picking Port Charles was to avoid trouble. Instead, I -- found you.

Sonny: Oh, I got this feeling that I'm -- I'm about to be blamed for all this.

Kate: You kissed me.

Sonny: Oh -- last time I checked, that -- that wasn't a -- you know -- what?

Kate: I was flustered and -- and rattled and -- you know what -- frankly, a little bit annoyed, and that is why I hit the police car.

Sonny: Okay, listen to me. Come here. Just --

Kate: Where is my lawyer? He's on retainer -- he's supposed to jump when I call.

Sonny: He's going to -- he's going to show up.

Kate: I have a conference call in the City.

Sonny: Okay. I don't know if you realize this, but this is more serious than you think. You're going to have to stay here all night, probably.

Spinelli: Hi.

[Lulu sighs]

Lulu: I was surprised you called.

Spinelli: Um -- it was essential, but -- oh -- now that you stand before me, the -- the jackal finds it hard to say what must be said.

Lulu: I'm sorry for running out on you. It wasn't fair and I know that you don't like Logan and it's wrong for me to shove my feelings for him in your face, so I'm going to try and keep our friendship a Logan-free zone.

Spinelli: Well, that may be easier once I tell you what the Jackal overheard. Look, um, -- the bad blonde one was in a heated dispute with her boyfriend and, well, from what I could surmise, the clean-cut cadet caught her making out with Logan at the very moment we were speaking of him.

Lulu: I cannot believe you would lie to me a second time.

Diane: Oh, Mr. Lansing? I owe you such a big thank you. By insisting that I present the Alcazar evidence at this juncture, you have given the jury that much more time to contemplate reasonable doubt.

Ric: Yeah, well, you know as well as your client does that that evidence was fabricated.

Diane: I'm happy to report I know no such thing.

Ric: Really? Well, let me fill you in -- Alcazar is not moving money around Venezuela or anywhere else for that matter, Ms. Miller. He's busy feeding the fish at the bottom of the harbor -- that, or he's packed neatly away in one of those crates of coffee beans that they import.

Diane: Hmm. Hmm.

Mayor Floyd: Well, it looks like you miscalculated.

Ric: Tomorrow, I will prove that the evidence is fabricated as a desperate ploy on the part of the defense because Morgan is guilty.

Mayor Floyd: You sure about that?

Ric: Come on. You don't believe this crap about Alcazar being alive.

Mayor Floyd: Well, the man is a known arms dealer. He -- it's reasonable to assume he's expert at dropping out of sight, crossing international borders without being detected. What's to stop him from faking his own death and framing Morgan in the process?

Ric: Because that's not the way Sonny and Jason think. Look, Alcazar was a constant threat -- he needed to be eliminated.

Mayor Floyd: Hmm. You know, I find it very telling that you didn't invoke your star witness, Mr. Mancini, which means that that guy must've been a plant and you knew about it from the very beginning.

Ric: Mr. Mancini was a witness who came forward. We checked out his story, it was fine -- that's the only reason that I --

Mayor Floyd: Listen, no more excuses, all right? The wheels are obviously coming off this bus, so it's time to start damage control.

Ric: Oh. I guess this is where you're going to threaten to take me off the case and put on Scott Baldwin, right?

Mayor Floyd: And what do you think I was doing during the recess? See, the only problem is Baldwin won't touch this case -- he thinks it's unwinnable. So it is time for you to prove him wrong.

Carly: Did you see the look on the jury's face when Diane presented the evidence? They actually think Alcazar's alive.

Jason: Yeah, but it wasn't worth you risking your life.

Carly: What's the point of worrying? I'm home and I'm safe.

Jason: The point is you could've been hurt or killed, Carly.

Carly: I had to help you when I had the chance.

Sam: Thank you.

Man: Pleasure.

Sam: Nikolas?

Nikolas: Hi.

Sam: Should I guess why you wanted to see me?

[Nikolas sighs]

Nikolas: Well, after you left Lucky's house today, things got a bit -- shall I say ugly? Lucky's about as angry with me as he is with Elizabeth, and then Elizabeth came home and -- and it set him off again.

Sam: Yeah -- yeah, I'm -- I'm sure. Lucky feels very much alone.

Nikolas: I'm sure he does. And obviously, there will be some tension between the two of them for at least a little while, and I don't think it's helping either one of them to have you around. In fact, I think it's probably making it worse.

Sam: And there it is -- Elizabeth came running to you about what a terrible person I am, didn't she?

[Nikolas sighs]

Elizabeth: Lucky? Lucky?

[Elizabeth sighs]

Elizabeth: I just had a long conversation with Nikolas, and then Lulu. And I'm convinced that we're worth fighting for. So if we can be understanding and calm, then I think --

Lucky: Why don't you help me understand this? Where the hell do you get off telling Alexis to keep Sam away from me?

Sonny: I'm not trying to get you upset. I'm just telling you the truth.

Kate: Well, what you say is of no consequence --

Sonny: Oh, okay.

Kate: Because I'm going to be out of here as -- as soon as all this nasty little -- till it's cleared up.

Sonny: You know what? I am no lawyer, but I'll tell you right now that I've had enough charges thrown at me, and this is your second offense.

Kate: Don't even think that my dented fender compares to your criminal activities. Mine was an accident -- I wasn't even drunk.

Sonny: Yeah? Well, yeah, that's hard to prove since you hit and ran.

Kate: Well, I wasn't -- you know, an apple martini would just be a little slice of heaven right now. Oh! They took my phone. Yeah -- how am I supposed to do anything without my phone?

Sonny: Oh, wow. Okay, listen. That lawyer that you had Clarice call -- there's no way he can get here in time to get you a bail hearing tonight, so why don't you let me call Diane Miller? She --

Kate: No, Sonny, I don't need your mob lawyer.

Sonny: Sweetheart, you need all the help you can get at this point.

Mac: There's still no sign of your attorney.

Kate: Well, Commissioner, that may not even be necessary. I am completely prepared to pay for all the charges. In fact, bring me my checkbook and I will write out a check for the widows' and orphans' fund, too, and you know what? While we're waiting for my lawyer, Henry, I could just do that at the hotel and then we could all meet back here tomorrow after we've had a hot bath and a good night's sleep and I can cross those I's and dot those T's and be on my way. Great -- so, whenever you're ready.

Mac: I have a better idea. Since this is your second offense, why don't I take you down to processing and you'll spend the night in lockup?

Sonny: Don't worry. We'll -- we'll get you out of here.

[Door closes]

Lulu: Did you actually think that I would buy this, that you conveniently stumbled across the proof that Logan kissed Maxie 20 minutes after I told you he wouldn't do something like that? Huh -- come on.

Spinelli: No -- look. Lo, I can't control when the truth chooses to come out, okay? I can only warn you that your knight in snakeskin armor, the crabby commando, put -- put the moves on Maxie Jones, okay? And I -- look, I -- I'm -- I'm afraid that the bad blonde one and the crabby commando are spending their evenings engaging in that same carnal knowledge that you wished for yourself.

Lulu: Listen to you! How low are you going to go to hurt me?

Spinelli: No, look, it was never my intent to hurt you --

Lulu: I don't care about your intent! I'm telling you right now, you keep this up and you're going to wreck our friendship.

Logan: Everything okay?

Lulu: Everything is great. Let's go have lunch.

Logan: All right.

[Spinelli sighs]

Marty: Ms. Sherman insists that the suit she bought at the boutique was not the same price that she was billed for -- Maxie?

Maxie: I'm sorry. I'm having a really hard time focusing. Excuse me -- Coop?

Coop: Yeah?

Maxie: Please talk to me. You have no idea how much I hate myself right now. Can't you please give me the benefit of the doubt this one time?

Coop: I don't know.

Nikolas: No one -- no one asked me to speak to you, Sam. I'm just afraid that Lucky's angry enough to destroy what matters to him most, and that's his wife and his children.

Sam: Well, if you think I'm feeding Lucky's anger, you are wrong. We've actually become friends. We have a lot more in common than -- than you think, and you know what? Honestly, it's actually nice to be around somebody who understands betrayal.

Nikolas: Ugh -- I'm not sure it's that simple, because if you could get Lucky away from Elizabeth, it'd be some sort of sweet revenge, wouldn't it?

Elizabeth: Lucky, I want us to have the best chance possible, and I thought Alexis might understand how important it is to keep our family together.

Lucky: Well, if you have a problem with me talking to Sam, say it to my face -- not behind my back.

Elizabeth: All right. I have a major problem with Sam being around you and our children. Lucky, she hates me.

Lucky: She has good reason to.

Jason: Well, you might -- you might as well go home, okay?

Carly: I want to stay here with you.

Jason: Why?

Ofc. Riley: You know the drill, Morgan.

[Jason sighs]

Diane: I suspect that you had something to do with this new evidence that Lorenzo Alcazar is alive.

Jerry: Oh, I'm shocked. You can't be implying that the evidence is forged?

Diane: No -- far from it. I'm thanking you for any part you may have played and merely suggesting that if you have any more evidence up your sleeve, now might be an excellent time to share it.

Jerry: Well, actually, I have it on good authority that el senor Alcazar will be withdrawing some money from his Singapore bank account at any time.

Diane: Bueno.

Carly: I can't believe that I was trying to do something good for you and all I did was make you mad at me.

Jason: I just don't like you taking risks. But I do know how lucky I am to have you on my side.

Carly: You're not mad at me anymore?

Jason: Yeah, I'm mad.

Carly: But you still love me?

[Jason sighs]

Jason: Of course -- yes, I do.

Ofc. Riley: All right, step away from the prisoner.

Carly: This is me stepping away. What do we do now?

Jason: Now we just wait and see if the evidence is enough to get me acquitted.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Noah: What's going on?

Patrick: She's the one picking fights for no reason.

Robin: You're a jerk. Is that a good enough reason?

Jax: I'd really like to see my wife.

Irina: You didn't seem to be missing her when you were lying in bed with me.

Ric: I have a proposition for you. I'll make it worth your while.

Jason: What are you doing here?

Spinelli: I come bearing news of the darkest nature.
