Logan: Hold that thought.

Jax: Our lives are at stake? What have you done now?

Jerry: Not me, Sonny. Now, listen to me. A New York City crime boss named Anthony Zacchara is planning a takeover of Port Charles. You, Michael, and Morgan could be his first targets.

Carly: I already talked to Jason, I think you're exaggerating.

Jax: You knew about this?

Sonny: I don't care what it takes. Find out who met with Zacchara and get back to me tonight. Bye.

Milo: Sir?

Sonny: What?

Milo: D.A. Lansing is here

Sonny: Oh. Let him in.

Milo: Okay.

Sonny: Shouldn't you be getting ready to throw Kate in prison for the crime of knowing me?

Ric: I realize you did everything you could to try to help Kate, yet you were ineffectual. How does it feel, Sonny, to know that somebody else succeeded where you failed?

Sonny: Spit it out, Ric.

Ric: Well, my father got Kate's sentence reduced to a fine and 20 hours of community service. And, clearly, Kate was very grateful.

Jason: I don't care about your personal junk. You tell Zacchara that Port Charles is Sonny's territory, and to be smart and just stay away.

Trevor: Weren't you the guy who walked away from a murder rap because my son was inept? Hmm. Well, you really don't want to threaten me, because the outcome is going to be different. You don't want me as your enemy.

Nikolas: You're finished with continually abusing your power at this hospital. How can you reprimand Emily for taking a break?

Russell: Ms. Quartermaine is not here to socialize, and your position at the hospital really doesn't allow --

Nikolas: Well, let me make this really simple for you. If you don't leave Emily alone, I'm just going to put you on the street.

Emily: Nikolas, it's all right.

Nikolas: No, it's not all right. He can't talk to you like that.

Emily: He's doing his job.

Nikolas: Don't make excuses for him! Lay blame where it's deserved!

Emily: Stop shouting at me.

Logan: You know what? Stop. Put on your clothes.

Lulu: What -- what's going on?

Logan: I am going to prove to you that I'm a sensitive guy and not just some jerk that drags his girlfriend back to his apartment for a nooner.

Lulu: You did not drag me. I came back very, very willingly.

Logan: Yeah, I know, I know, but a guy's supposed to, you know, be sensitive to a girl's needs -- romance and foreplay and all that stuff.

Lulu: No, no, you don't hear me complaining.

[Logan chuckles]

Logan: Listen, I want you to know that I like you for your mind also, not just your incredible face and body, okay?

[Lulu chuckles]

Logan: So, come on, get dressed.

Lulu: Uh -- okay. If you say so.

Logan: I'm going to prove to you that I can be the most romantic guy on the planet, okay?

Lulu: You are.

Logan: Let's go. All right, here, come on.

Lulu: Well, I just -- I want you to know I was perfectly happy on that couch back there.

Logan: I know, I know. We're going to have a great time, though. I know. Come on, let's go.

Carly: Jason mentioned that this Anthony Zacchara might be moving into Port Charles, but that's not the real problem, okay? The real problem is he has a lawyer named Trevor Lansing, who is Ric's --

Jax: Why didn't you tell me about this before?

Carly: I just found out about it myself, and I was trying to fix our shaky marriage. It doesn't really matter. Jason assured me that we would have more protection.

Jax: You don't seemed concerned at all.

Jerry: Oh, it seems I've caused marital friction. I apologize -- I didn't mean --

Jax: No, you said what you wanted to say. Why are you still here?

Carly: Yeah, Jasonís going to protect us, so we don't need your protection.

Jerry: Jason is the one who warned me about Zacchara. This man is vicious, and, like it or not, you will need my help.

Trevor: I don't respond well to threats.

Jason: I'm sure you don't want trouble. Go back to Manhattan, tell your boss this place is off-limits.

Trevor: Well, Sonny knows that here to visit my girlfriend, Kate Howard. You'd understand why Kate is my motivation.

Jason: If Zacchara makes a move, you will be caught in the crossfire.

Sonny: You wanted to punish Kate to get at me. You were all ready to throw her in jail. Your dad shows up, beats you to the punch, and you're bragging about it.

Ric: No. The case had reached a point of diminishing returns.

Sonny: Look, you caved into the pressure, just like your spectacular failure in the courtroom. You're not a very good lawyer, Ric, and your dad knows that and he's kind of embarrassed, I would imagine.

Ric: You know, my father hates me because I remind him of our mother. I mean, after all, we both lost her because of you.

Sonny: Are we going to go down that road again?

Ric: You know what? I've lived my life with my father's resentment hanging over my head, Sonny, and there's some valuable lessons that I've learned along the way, and that is you never get in the way when one of dad's mistresses is involved. You do realize, Sonny, don't you? Kate Howard has been sleeping with my father for years.

Nikolas: In my estimation, Dr. Ford has been coming down on you too harshly. However, I will reserve any future complaints for behind conference room doors. Emily would like to request a vacation.

Emily: Oh -- oh --

Nikolas: I sincerely hope that you consider it.

Russell: Certainly. Take as much time off as you'd like, and inform personnel that I have approved it. Mr. Cassadine, if my tone was brusque, I'm sorry. Good day.

Nikolas: Well, it was a bit of a struggle, but we got your vacation approved. So, when can we leave for Italy?

Emily: Nikolas, I told you. I'm -- I'm working, and I'm studying hard. I -- I might not be able to take that time off, and even if I could, I wouldn't be able to rearrange my schedule.

Nikolas: Yes, yes, you would, you can, so start rearranging.

Emily: There's also something that I need to discuss with you --

Nikolas: Damn. I was supposed to go to the hotel in 10 minutes to sign a lease for some office space. Can I meet you in the park in about 30?

Emily: Mm-hmm.

Nikolas: Okay. Listen, don't worry, okay? You're going to love watching the sun rise over the Sardinian coast. Don't worry.

[Carnival music plays]

Lulu: Thank you again for my gorilla.

Logan: Yeah, it only took me 4o bucks to win at five different games for this --

Lulu: And the game that you were best at is toss the rings on little rubber duckies -- who knew?

Logan: Yeah, well, I had to do something to impress you before your grandmother drags you off on a cruise and spends the entire time warning you away from me.

Lulu: My grandmother doesn't even know you.

Logan: Okay, true, but she knows Nikolas, who wants me away from you and out of town.

Lulu: That really bothers you, doesn't it?

Logan: I know I'm not good enough for you, but I hate having to hear it from, you know, all these people.

Lulu: Who knows anything about "good enough"? People are flawed. You take them as you find them. If you set them up on a pedestal, you're just setting them up to fail, or setting yourself up for disappointment.

Logan: Were did you come by that particular insight?

Lulu: My dad. I don't know -- he -- I used to resent him for not caring -- and sometimes he doesn't -- but most of the time he tries to not pass judgment, and I would like to be that way.

Logan: Lucky for me.

Lulu: Yeah, yeah. When I first met you, I judged you a lot, and the second that I stopped, you turned out to be nothing like I thought.

Logan: You give me incentive to be better.

Lulu: Is that why you took me to a carnival instead of us sleeping together -- so that you could prove that you're not with me just for sex?

Logan: Uh-huh.

Coop: This has got to stop. Stop spying. If you have something to say to Logan and Lulu, just say it.

Ric: Well, I'm sorry, Sonny. You didn't exactly think that our mother was Trevor Lansingís only mistress? No, far from it. Dad was a very busy man. I sometimes wonder if he's got other kids out there. You think Kate's ever been pregnant?

Sonny: You're a sick bastard.

Ric: You know, if you have any notions of maybe dating Kate Howard, I'd say that my father beat you to it.

Sonny: Do you see how pathetic you sound right now? Coming over here, throwing your father in my face because you've never been able to win anything against me.

Ric: I'm not the one who's involved with Trevor Lansingís mistress.

Sonny: Let me tell you something about -- about Trevor. He means nothing to me. But if I find out he's scoping Port Charles for Anthony Zacchara, I'll take him down!

Ric: Fine, go ahead. Kill the arrogant bastard -- or he'll kill you. Either way is fine with me.

Sonny: Your father gets to you, doesn't he? He rattles you right down to your core. And if he stays in town long enough, you are going to be -- you are going to be done. And you know what? I'm going to have a ringside seat to watch.

Jax: I told you to stay away from my family.

Jerry: Your family could die if you don't listen to reason.

Jax: Look, I don't care if Jason Morgan told you to come over here to take care of --

Jerry: If Jason Morgan is worried up enough to deal with me, then you should pay attention to it. Or does your hatred of me outweigh your love for Carly and your stepsons?

Jax: I can take care of my family!

Jerry: This is not a stock manipulation, Jax!

Jax: Yeah.

Jerry: You are not equipped to handle mob kingpins, you understand?

Jax: You are?

Jerry: Well, just ask Irina.

Jax: Oh, wow, Jerry, if you're trying to convince me that you can be trusted around my family, that's not exactly the answer I was looking for.

Jerry: Zacchara is a very, very powerful mob boss. He will murder your family in the blink of an eye if he thinks he can gain leverage over Sonny.

Jax: Sonny is quite capable of taking care of his ridiculous territory. He's been doing it for years without any help from you or --

Jerry: You're not thinking clearly, Jax!

Jax: I'll protect Carly against any danger, and that includes you.

Jerry: Carly is one in a million. If you want to risk her life just to soothe your pride, you're a fool.

Carly: Jerry? Really? You had to tell Jerry?

Jason: Well, are you okay?

Carly: Yes, I'm okay. Don't I look okay?

Jason: Are you in any physical danger?

Carly: How could I be? That guard you placed outside my house practically tackled me the second I stepped foot outside. Did I mention how much Jax hated that?

Jason: What do you mean? Jax hates that I'm protecting you now?

Carly: No, no, he doesn't hate that -- Jax is my husband, okay? He's the man I'm supposed to turn to, t man I'm supposed to rely on. Instead, I'm saying "don't worry, Jax. Yes, a gangster has targeted our family, but Jasonís going to protect me." And I have no doubt that you will, it Ė my marriage is already on shaky ground. It is a slap in Jax's face telling him yet again that I need you.

Jason: I am sorry that this is causing problems for you, but I have to make sure that you're safe.

Carly: The problem is the boys and I are connected to Sonny, Sonny's life is dangerous, and Jax has no idea how to deal with that.

Jason: What do you want me to do?

Carly: I know this is a really bad time for me to be dumping my marital problems on you. But I need to think this through and you're the only person I can talk to.

[Jason sighs]

Carly: I love Jax. I want everything to work out with him.

Jason: Do you believe that he still loves you?

Carly: He says he does. He says he's so sorry about everything that happened with Irina and Jerry, he promised me he'll never leave me again. Which is probably why he's so upset about this whole Zacchara thing, because he's failed me, and now he's trying to compensate. Oh, things aren't supposed to be so complicated, not with me and Jax.

Jason: Everything about you is complicated.

Carly: We're not -- not anymore. I'll do anything for you; you'll do anything for me.

Jason: All right, what am I supposed to do for you now?

Carly: Nothing. I have to do it. I have to do everything. I have to figure out how to forgive Jax, how to fix my marriage. And I know I got to stay calm, I got to count to 10.

Jason: Mm-hmm.

Carly: How's Sonny?

Jason: Why?

Carly: Because I have to go pick up the boys and I need to be prepared if I'm going to have a huge fight with him.

Jason: How should I know that?

Carly: Because you know him, and you know me. What should I expect?

Jason: Um -- I would expect that Sonny's pretty wound up.

Carly: He should come talk to you. You work wonders for me.

[Carnival music plays]

Maxie: Okay, we all know I'm a nosy person, we can go now.

Coop: Sorry to interrupt, but I saw Maxie spying on you two and I just thought you should know.

Logan: What the hell?

Maxie: I was just passing through, Coop.

Coop: Tell them, not me. I'm late for the academy and I'm tired of playing games. She's all yours.

Lulu: What's your problem? You have a job, a boyfriend, and a family, and still you have no life.

Maxie: Oh, do you want to tell her the truth, or should I?

Lulu: I already know the truth -- you're jealous of me.

Maxie: Don't even get me started.

Lulu: You hate seeing me happy, so you're trying to break us up by throwing yourself at Logan.

Maxie: Lulu, you actually have no idea what's going on.

Logan: Okay, all right, why don't we just call a truce?

Lulu: Why do I have to put up with this?

Logan: Because Maxie's just being Maxie.

Lulu: That's right. She's trying to ruin anything good in my life.

Maxie: You are so deluded, can't wait to give you a dose of cold reality.

Lulu: Read my lips -- you're not breaking up me and Logan. All this pathetic lurking is just making you look obsessed.

Maxie: You're pathetic, not me.

Logan: All right, you know what? We're going to call it a day, all right?

Maxie: Oh, I don't know who's the bigger fool here.

Logan: That's enough -- that's enough, Maxie.

[Phone rings]

Logan: This is Logan.

Ric: My office -- now.

Kate: Trevor -- huh. What are you doing here?

Trevor: You invited me over to look at your new house and have dinner. Did you forget?

Kate: Oh, Trevor, I'm so sorry. It's just -- it's been a crazy afternoon, just one crisis after another, but you know what? I'm glad you're here. We're going to have some wine, and I'll -- I'll order food from this fabulous little French that delivers, and --

Trevor: What's the matter?

Kate: Um -- uh, one of the -- the models walked off of our Costa Rica shoot, and now the entire day is a waste.

Trevor: And?

Kate: You don't want to hear a litany of my problems.

Trevor: Yes, I do. Because every time you get personally upset, you look all over the place except in my eyes.

Kate: You never told me that before.

Trevor: You never tried to cover so hard before. Come on. Tell me what's wrong. Maybe I can help make it better.

Kate: Your son is a loathsome worm.

Trevor: What did Richard say to you?

[Sonny dials]

Kate's voice: This is Kate Howard; please leave a message at the beep.

[Voicemail beeps]

Carly: Thank you. Hey. You know, um, thank you so much for watching the boys again.

Sonny: Okay, what the hell were you -- hold on, hold on. What the hell were you thinking going off with Jerry to rescue Jax, putting your -- your life in the hands of a psycho?

Carly: I'm okay! Look, I'm back, I'm totally fine.

Sonny: Were you in danger?

Carly: A couple times -- a little, yeah.

Sonny: Okay, okay, you know what? Jax has a family now; he's got a wife, two stepsons. Is he being responsible? Is he making you happy? Absolutely not. As a matter of fact, it's just -- you know, he's -- he's not doing what he needs to do as a husband --

Carly: No, he didn't know that I was going after him!

Sonny: Well, then he shouldn't be your husband if he doesn't know! You don't think before you act, you'll do anything for the people you love -- he should know that!

Carly: Thank you.

Sonny: Don't thank me. I mean, you know -- Jerry Jacks is a freak. You think he cares one bit about what's going on here? You could've "died" going over there, trying to rescue Jax. Do you think he would've given one ounce of a damn? No, he wouldnít. He'll save his own skin before he saves yours or anybody else's!

Carly: That's not what you're angry about.

Sonny: Well --

Carly: Trevor Lansing ruined your mother's life, and after all these years, he's back, and you're in hell.

Jax: So how serious a threat is this Zacchara person?

Jason: We can't be sure yet. His lawyer's in town, that could mean that Zacchara's looking to expand. But he has a reputation for targeting families. That's why we're increasing the security on Carly and the boys.

Jax: Wow. Just -- that's great. They're my family; I'm quite capable of protecting them and keeping them safe.

Jason: Do whatever you want.

Jax: But you're going to continue with your plans? You're going to ignore what I'm -- what I'm telling you right now? You're going to completely ignore the fact that I'm her husband?

Jason: You should talk this out with Carly.

Jax: No, I'm not going to put her in the middle of this.

Jason: Look, Carly trusts me, okay? She trusts me to protect her. You know what? You don't even get a say after you walked out and left her.

Jax: Oh, you make it sound like I'm some deadbeat who deserted Carly. I thought I was rescuing my brother, okay, that's not unusual for me.

[Jax sighs]

Jax: It might've been stupid, but there was never any question if I was coming back. I love Carly.

Jason: You left Carly; you slept around on her -- what part of that was love?

[Carnival music plays]

Lulu: I'm impressed that Coop busted you for spying on me and Logan. I guess the poor guy's finally seeing you for the desperate slut that you really are.

Maxie: Why are you so threatened by me, Lulu? Unless you just realized that your lack of experience is going to bore Logan -- if it hasn't already. I mean, the guy's a lowlife creep, but he's --

Spinelli: Whoa -- hey, please --

Maxie: Oh!

Spinelli: Please refrain from violence, fair Lulu.

Lulu: You selfish cow.

Maxie: Oh, Lulu, I'm sorry -- did I hurt your feelings?

Spinelli: Muzzle yourself, bad blond one.

Lulu: Just let me go at her, Spinelli.

Spinelli: No, no, no, no, no. Look, physical violence solves nothing, okay?

Lulu: Yeah, it would make me feel better.

Spinelli: Okay, she's just trying to provoke you into a reaction, so an attack -- however warranted -- is just playing into her manipulative hands, okay?

Maxie: That's really sad, Spinelli, because I've only been honest with you, unlike Lulu, who's just been pulling your strings -- unless you have clued your best bud here in on the fact that you're playing mattress tag with the unworthy one?

Lulu: It's not how she makes it sound.

Spinelli: Okay, no explanation necessary, okay? The Jackal respects your privacy. But you -- I cannot abide your spite. Leave now.

Maxie: Face it, Spinelli, you're wasting all your loyalty and concern. Lulu is hot for Logan. You are just an afterthought.

Spinelli: Let no more venom escape your lips.

Maxie: You know I'm right.

Lulu: I'm sorry. I'm really sorry. I thought that I -- you know, I thought I'd been honest --

Spinelli: No, the Jackal meant what he said, okay? Please don't try to explain.

Logan: Mr. Lansing. You know, just a thought -- it's probably not a good idea to be summoning your mob informants to your office.

Ric: Yeah? I don't give a damn. A kingpin from New York City is about to move in on Sonny's territory. Anthony Zacchara -- name ring a bell?

Logan: I don't think so.

Ric: Oh, Sonny's never mentioned him, right?

Logan: Not a word.

Ric: Well, he will. My brother is gearing up for a full-scale mob war, and if I know Sonny, he's going to want to launch a preemptive strike. You are going to tell me when and where it's going to happen so that I can arrest Sonny for murder.

Kate: I overheard Ric telling Sonny about our relationship. He succeeded in making it sound ugly and degraded. Ric was almost vicious in the attack.

Trevor: Well, Richard hates me. He'll malign me in any way he can just to throw it in Sonny's face.

Kate: Ric is really that vindictive?

Trevor: Richard is obsessed with Sonny. Kate, sometimes I think I made a mistake when I told Richard the choice that his mother made. Now, what's done is done. I'm sorry that you got caught in the backlash.

Kate: Well, it was unsettling -- to hear Ric refer to me as your mistress.

Trevor: "Unsettling"? Because Sonny heard it? When, then, did you start really caring about Sonny?

Kate: I donít. I donít. I just -- I have a reputation to protect.

Trevor: I warned you that that man is mentally imbalanced. Why won't you believe that he's dangerous?

Sonny: When Kate was talking about Trevor Lansing, it hit me like a brick. So I had --

[Sonny sighs]

Sonny: I had Trevor, you know, come into my office so I can question him. Very, very difficult to look him in the face.

Carly: That must've brought back some pretty bad memories for you.

Sonny: Well, I just remember how bad he hurt my mother. He broke her heart, ruined her life. You know, he made her choose between sons, left her vulnerable to Deke, and now he's in Port Charles.

Carly: And finding out he's Kate's lover didn't feel good, I'm sure.

Sonny: I can't go -- I can't -- I can't talk about this with you. I mean, it's just kind of --

Carly: Weird.

Sonny: Yeah.

Carly: Be careful, please? I'm going to give you some Jason advice -- count to 10. No matter how bad Trevor baits you, please?

Sonny: I'll try.

Carly: If there's anything I can do for you, you tell me, okay?

Sonny: I just want you to stay safe. Things are going to get real ugly, I want you to just, you know --

Carly: Okay, yeah, I will. I promise.

Michael: Mom, you're back!

Carly: Hey! Get over here! Come here! Oh -- oh, I missed you!

Michael: I missed you, too.

Carly: Come here. Oh -- so --

Michael: Oh --

Carly: You guys told me you had so much fun --

Michael: Yes.

Carly: When you were being here with Dad.

Michael: It was awesome! We went out on the boat, played ball, barbecued -- Dad taught me how to make ribs.

Carly: Oh! And I know you had tons of vegetables, right? He had his vegetables?

Michael: Right. Sure.

Sonny: Well --

Carly: Sonny --

Sonny: A carrot here, a carrot there -- you know.

Michael: Hey, hey, hey, did "you" have your vegetables?

Carly: Yeah! Yeah -- potatoes, sour cream, bacon bits, lots of butter.

Michael: Mom, you're so busted.

Morgan: Busted.

Carly: Yeah.

Michael: Thank you.

Sonny: Oh.

Jax: Does my wife tell you everything?

Jason: Whether I like to hear it or not.

Jax: Yeah, well, I'm sorry to hear that. I've already explained to Carly why I had to sleep with Irina -- I'm sure you don't want to hear that again -- and she is going to work through it, okay?

Jason: No, you -- you chose your brother over Carly. How -- how you going to work through that, exactly?

Jax: Well, I can start by not doing it again.

Jason: Okay, you see, Carly thought getting married meant that you would put her and the boys first, but you didnít. You broke her trust. You may never get it back.

Nikolas: So what did you decide -- Rome or Paris as the first stopover city before Sardinia?

Emily: Uh -- I know you were trying to do something nice for me by challenging Dr. Ford --

Nikolas: I know, I know. I'm sorry -- I'm sorry that he was so rude to you --

Emily: You completely overreacted.

Nikolas: How --

Emily: You tore into Dr. Ford, you threatened to fire him.

Nikolas: Well --

Emily: It was very disrespectful.

Nikolas: I wasn't just going to sit there and let him imply that you were being lazy. I know how hard --

Emily: He's in a position of authority, Nikolas, he's allowed to reprimand me -- in fact, it's expected.

Nikolas: But the point is, is that the man backed off and said that you could take the trip.

Emily: No, he did what you wanted because he's struggling to protect the hospital from a takeover, and you're one of its main benefactors.

Nikolas: You deserve -- you deserve this trip, Emily. I don't --

Emily: I don't want any special treatment.

Nikolas: What's wrong with taking time off? What's wrong with --

Emily: I told you that I wasn't sure that I could go.

Nikolas: But he just -- look, I think it's great -- I think it's great that you're so responsible about your studies, but if you just take this trip with me, you'll see in the end that it's the right thing to do.

Emily: You assumed that since you wanted to go, you could talk me into it, but ultimately it's -- it's my decision.

Nikolas: All right. Dr. Ford said you could do it. The path has been cleared. What do you want to do? You want to go?

Emily: Honestly, Nikolas, it's a bad time for me right now, I have so much work. Maybe we could go later in the -- in the year.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Emily: I hope you're not angry.

Nikolas: No -- no, I'm flexible, we can go another time. It'll be okay, we'll go another time.

Michael: Oh -- hey, Lulu.

Lulu: Ah! Michael, Morgan! You guys must be so happy to have your mom home.

Michael: Yeah. Hey, um, do you want to come celebrate at Kellyís with us for -- with ice cream?

Carly: Oh, ice cream -- hmm, maybe later. Can we do that later? I need to talk with Lulu about a few things.

Michael: Okay.

Carly: Okay? You guys want to go upstairs, I'll come up in a little while?

Michael: All right. See you, Lulu.

Lulu: Bye.

Michael: Go.

Carly: You look like you needed to talk about something.

Lulu: I'm really glad you're home. I really need help sorting this out.

Carly: Okay. All right, sit down. Tell me what's going on.

Lulu: I feel wonderful and awful at the same time, and I'm stuck. There's no solution because I can't make everyone happy.

Carly: I want you to give me details -- what's going on?

Lulu: Logan and I connected in a very meaningful way, and today was incredible.

Carly: You're sleeping with Logan.

Logan: Mr. Corinthos, it's Logan. I was walking down the pier last night and I heard some men talking about a man named Anthony Zacchara from New York City. He sounds like a legitimate threat, so give me a call back when I can come in and talk to you about it. All right, thanks.

[Knock on door]

Maxie: Guess who.

Logan: Go away; I don't have time for stalkers.

Maxie: Oh, please. You couldn't have been too surprised when you saw me in the park earlier. After all -- you knew I was in the closet when you were here with Lulu before. That's why you bailed on having sex with her -- you didn't want me watching.

Logan: You really are a stalker.

Maxie: So convincing. I especially like the look of shock earlier -- you know, eyes wide, mouth a little open -- Lulu definitely bought it when you did that in the park.

Logan: Get out.

Maxie: Why? We have a lot to discuss.

Logan: I'm busy, Maxie, come on.

Maxie: You know, you used to be a lot nicer to me -- of course, that was before you were so worried about protecting Lulu from me.

Logan: You know, every time you see that girl, you're on her case.

Maxie: And she's on mine.

Logan: Okay, so enough already. Just leave her alone.

Maxie: I know what this is about. You don't want Lulu finding out about our bet because you're starting to fall in love with her.

Jason: Okay, listen, I need you to do a search on Anthony Zacchara and his connection to Trevor Lansing, all right? So get your -- get your computer out.

Spinelli: I'm sorry, master, I'm -- the Jackal is useless, incapacitated by the frailties of the human heart.

Jason: Okay, what's the problem?

[Spinelli sighs]

Spinelli: The blond one and the unworthy one are performing acts of a most deeply personal nature.

Jason: You talking about Logan and Lulu?

Spinelli: They're -- intermingling. Please don't -- come on, don't let me -- don't make me say it. It's too bitter on the tongue, okay?

Jason: Okay, I'm sorry.

Spinelli: I warned her -- I warned her time and again that he's toxic waste, but despite all these admonitions, she's deceived by his -- his rebel, poseur masquerade. You know, Stone Cold, why can't she -- why can't she see that beneath that pseudo tough-guy facade is this heart of pure lead, right? I -- toxic, gray, incapable of any, any emotion but selfishness.

Jason: I -- I know that you're hurting, but you can't make choices for Lulu.

Spinelli: Yeah, but he's just -- he's just going to betray her trust and hurt her again.

Jason: What do you mean, "hurt her again"?

Spinelli: Well, the unworthy one has been disrespectful to the blond one on many occasions.

Jason: Well, I want you to give me an example.

Spinelli: I mean, his behavior is so selfish and cocky, you know? I mean, the blond one used to think he was a bore and she would often talk to me about his exceedingly obnoxious behavior -- she was repelled. So, I mean, how does that -- how does that morph into desire?

Jason: People are attracted to each other for all kind of weird reasons, Spinelli.

Spinelli: Ugh! This is level-10 torture.

Jason: Okay, listen -- listen to me. Just settle down for a second, all right? If you really think this guy is bad for Lulu, it is your duty as a friend to just speak up.

Spinelli: Yeah, she knows the facts, but, unfortunately, she just chooses to ignore them.

Jason: But you just told me that he's done something harmful to her already -- what was that?

Spinelli: Why -- he -- um -- he assaulted the Jackal with a flurry of fisticuffs at the coffeehouse.

Jason: What?

Spinelli: Yeah. I mean, I don't -- I don't want to dwell on the circumstance. Suffice it to say, I -- the Jackal was overpowered by the unworthy one, and the blond one defended me, at which point he -- um -- he grabbed her and forced a most hearty osculation on her protesting lips. He -- he -- he grabbed her by the hair and kissed her. And the Jackal was powerless to stop it.

Jason: So you're telling me that Logan forced Lulu to kiss him.

(Spinelli nods)

Lulu: I didn't know if I should sleep with Logan or not, and I went into complete over-think.

Carly: Were you worried it was too soon?

Lulu: No, I just -- I kept getting flashes of last summer with Dillon, and how I needed to be with him for all the wrong reasons, and after we had sex, I felt so guilty. But it's completely different with Logan. It felt natural, you know, almost too good to be true. But it is true, because Logan hasn't backed off at all. If anything, he's being more sweet and more considerate.

Carly: Well, that's great. You feel like you made the right decision?

Lulu: For the first time since the abortion, I pushed aside all my fears and I trusted my instincts, and I'm very glad that I did.

Carly: Okay. Not to rain on your parade -- how well do you know Logan?

Lulu: Probably better than anyone else. Logan is very private, and I think it's because he wants to protect himself so that he doesn't get hurt. But Loganís different with me.

Logan: I'm not in love with Lulu.

Maxie: How gullible do I look?

Logan: Maxie, I'm doing the deal as we agreed, which means, obviously, you've bought the act, which means I'm even better than I thought.

Maxie: Excuse me, but it's obvious you're all soft and gushy around Lulu even when no one's looking.

Logan: Lulu's looking and that's the whole point.

Maxie: Admit it, Logan -- you like the fact that Lulu sees you as the bad boy with a heart of gold, but that's all going to change when she finds out the only reason you got her into bed is because I agreed to sleep with you.

Logan: Maxie, not a word to Lulu, or I will --

Maxie: What -- are you threatening me? Because if anything happens to me, you're going to be the first suspect.

Logan: I'm serious. Don't you say a word to her.

Maxie: I won't, as long as you keep your end of the bargain. That's our new deal -- you sleep with me, or I tell Lulu everything.

Logan: Oh, you're a slut.

Maxie: Kind of turns you on.

Coop: You wanted to see me, Sir?

Ric: Sonny's gearing up for war. As soon as I hear from my informant, we're going to move in and arrest him for conspiracy to commit murder.

Coop: Corinthos' organization is almost impossible to infiltrate. Are you sure your source is reliable?

Ric: Security is not up to its usual standards. My brother's not thinking clearly at the moment. He's had some unexpected personal problems.

Kate: Sonny and I are neighbors, nothing more.

Trevor: "Nothing"?

Kate: Well --

Trevor: Not even friends?

Kate: We're amicable, yes, yes. I -- I went over to his house to discuss a fence that we're talking about building between our properties, but I didn't know that I was going to walk in on your son spreading vicious stories about me.

Trevor: Don't worry about Richard.

Kate: Well, it upsets me. It upsets me to hear anyone cheapen our relationship. You know that you have meant so much to me. You took me under your wing when I was barely out of college, you helped me climb the ladder at "Couture," you introduced me to your social circle.

Trevor: Well --

Kate: Trevor, I wouldn't be where I am today if it weren't for you.

Trevor: I hope I'm a little bit more than a mentor.

Kate: You have been. But I don't like being described as one of your many mistresses.

Trevor: Katie, there's a lot that's changed for both you and me since the last time we were together. But right now, thank heavens we are back in each other's lives. You were always precious to me, and you always will be.

>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Carly: What do you really know about Logan?

Elizabeth: I want you to stop seducing him to get back at Jason.
