Nikolas: You all ready to be an intern again?
Emily: Yeah, duty calls.
Nikolas: Any chance you can slip away for a few minutes and meet me at the Metro Court?
Emily: You worked out a deal for the office space?
Nikolas: I did. All I have to do is sign the lease.
Nikolas: And I could certainly use some help with the decor.
Emily: You could, huh?
Emily: Well, office decor isn't exactly my specialty.
Nikolas: I'm sure you know more than I do, though.
Emily: Is there any chance you're making up excuses to see me?
Nikolas: No, no, not at all. Why would I do that?
Maxie: Has Coop come downstairs yet?
Georgie: Uh, no, I haven't seen him.
Logan: Uh-uh. Don't even think about it.
Maxie: Let go of me.
Logan: Telling Coop that we slept together is not an option.
Maxie: As if you care about hurting your only friend. You just don't want him to tell Lulu.
Logan: Listen, it's going to be better for both of them if you keep your big mouth shut.
Coop: Why don't you two just get a room?
Spinelli: Stone cold -- Stone -- oh -- uh –
Jason: Emily, uh, it's Jason. Give me a call when you get a second, okay? I just want to talk to you about this Sam/Lucky situation. It's a little troubling, but I told Elizabeth that I -- that I wouldn't contact her. So just give me a call back. Thanks.
Spinelli: Okay, done?
Spinelli: Okay, okay, um -- uh, is the crabby commando awake to meet this day, or -- and is he still employed by Mr. Corinthos, Sir? Because if he doesn't meet or exceed those criteria, fair Lulu will cast me into a hell of my own making, a hell created of wrath and envy -- deadly sins five and six, depending on the list. But -- which, in certain belief systems, will cast me into the seventh to ninth ring of hell, but even worse, fair Lulu will never speak to me again.
Jason: Forget about Logan.
Spinelli: Oh, God. Meaning he sleeps with the fishes.
Jason: No, he's alive -- and he's still working for Sonny.
Spinelli: Oh! Sorry -- okay, sorry. I just never thought I'd be -- I never thought I'd be happy to hear that.
Jason: Okay, can you -- can you focus now? Because I need information if I'm going to protect Carly and her kids.
Jax: No, I don't think we need another bartender.
Carly: Yes, we do. Can you have Tim call me, please?
Jax: T's already -- he's in Montréal, remember? He wants to know about the mirror, as well.
Carly: I have to deal with the school supply list, give me a second.
Jax: Okay, hold on a second, please.
Carly: Morgan, honey, you don't need a laptop computer, you're in kindergarten. Have they installed the soft, peachy lights yet?
Jax: I'm not sure -- what? "Soft, peachy lights"?
Carly: For the mirror.
Jax: Why? I thought --
Carly: "Why?" Because when people drive upstate to look at the foliage, I would like them to stop at the Metro Court --
Jax: Okay, you know what?
Carly: And I'd like them to look beautiful.
Jax: Okay, okay -- put a rush on the mirror with soft, peachy lights. Okay?
Leticia: Okay, guys.
Jax: Yeah, I don't know what happened --
Leticia: Are you ready to go?
Carly: Uh -- wow. Are you taking the kids school shopping?
Leticia: Yeah. Jax said you had an important conference?
Jax: Yes, yes. Um, we have a very important conference.
Trevor: Call off your thugs. They're following me all over town, and they are not subtle.
Sonny: Is that why you came all the way out here -- because somebody's following you?
Trevor: Your intimidation tactics are not going to work with me. So you either back off, or I'm going to have Ric file charges.
Sonny: Let me explain something to you, okay? Do not bother threatening me with Ric, because he's a waste of my time, just like his dad.
Trevor: Pay attention, because I'm only going to say this once. Now, back off, you psychotic son of a bitch.
Kate: Trevor? What on earth is wrong with you?
Nikolas: You know, you are the main reason why I'm moving the office to the Metro Court, because it's closer to the hospital, we can -- we can have coffee on your breaks, lunch and dinner when you can get away -- if you get away.
Emily: Yes -- but sometimes I can't, okay?
Nikolas: I know, I know. No -- but if I'm in town, I may actually get to see you when you're awake and coherent.
Emily: Are you feeling abandoned, Alfred?
Nikolas: Oh, I'm sure Alfred will be relieved not to have me under foot. He doesn't have the time to be both butler and personal secretary, do you?
Alfred: On the contrary, Sir, I fear that you'll find the drawbacks of the offices at the Metro Court will outweigh the advantages.
Emily: Well, I hope not. It'll be so much fun to see you during the day. Okay, I've got to go, I'm late.
Nikolas: All right, so you'll help me with the decorating, right?
Emily: Sure, but I'm warning you -- no gargoyles.
Nikolas: Okay. Bye.
Nikolas: Oh, cheer up, Alfred. Come on, moving the offices in town will be a lot less work for you and a lot more fun for me.
Georgie: Here you go.
Maxie: What you just saw -- it wasn't what it looked like. Logan and I -- we were fighting.
Coop: Yeah, that's probably true.
Maxie: Coop, I can't stand him.
Coop: Well, you can't stand to be away from him, either.
Maxie: It's not how it seems.
Coop: Sure it is. You warned me from the very start. You know what? In a way, it's probably the most honest time that we ever spent together -- those first 12 hours. You told me exactly who you are and how you live.
Maxie: No, what -- we -- we depended on each other, we helped each other, it could still be like that.
Coop: I can't stop you from destroying yourself, but I never agreed to stand around and watch.
Georgie: Maxie, he just needs more time.
Maxie: Georgie -- oh –
Logan: Bernie, look, I am not a babysitter. Does Mr. Corinthos know that you're giving me orders? Yeah, I know they're Sonny's kids, okay, but I don't want to stand around and baby-sit some spoiled brats. Fine. Fine, I'll -- I'll be there. Bernie, look, I said --
Maxie: Do you think I'm just going to stand around and watch you ruin my relationship with Coop while you ride off into the sunset with Lulu?
Logan: Well, Maxie, you ruined your little relationship with Coop all on your own, okay? You didn't need any help from me.
Logan: You know what? I got to take this. Look, Bernie, I'm sorry I hung up on you. I was --
Ric: You meet me in the alley in back of Kelly’s -- now.
Spinelli: I understand that the fate of the unworthy one is -- is not the priority, and I am grateful. Because, see, my account of the unworthy one's attack on my person and subsequent advance on fair Lulu may have been, you know, unduly influenced by my deeply felt -- if unrequited -- feelings for the blond one.
Jason: I understand.
Spinelli: You -- you do?
Jason: Yeah, you told the truth about Logan, now you're backing off because you don't want Lulu to be mad at you.
Spinelli: Your stone-cold wisdom is accurate, as usual. Fair Lulu left on a sea voyage with her honored grandmother, but before she left, she made it very clear to me that if any harm was to befall the unworthy one, she would never forgive me.
Jason: I want Logan fired for a lot of reasons, okay? Sonny does not. We're just going to leave it at that for now.
Spinelli: Oh -- understood.
Jason: Understood. Now, can you focus on Zacchara?
Spinelli: Okay, I -- just give me one second. I -- it's been -- it's been a long day, I just need to kind of regain my -- my center, that's all. You know, it's really kind of a source of profound admiration that your center appears constant -- I have no idea how you do it.
Jason: Are you going to tell me if you've found anything?
Spinelli: Yeah, I did. And it's of a most dark and grievous nature.
Carly: Okay, Michael has his school supply list, you have the credit card. You shouldn't have to go anywhere but the mall. Morgan is not to get a laptop computer, no matter how much he begs, okay?
Jax: You know, I was just thinking about this. Maybe we should get Morgan a laptop computer -- and he's old enough now, I think.
Carly: He's in kindergarten.
Jax: Right, yeah, but he doesn't have to take it to kindergarten with him. He's just not going to be fighting with Michael over his computer -- right now they're --
Michael: I have -- I'm going to have lots of homework this year, and I might need my laptop almost every single night, and I do not want him messing with it.
Jax: See, that's the thing -- you don't want Morgan messing with your laptop. I mean, that's kind of a rule.
Carly: Okay, fine -- okay, fine! He can get a laptop computer.
Jax: There you go.
Carly: I want you guys to stay close to the bodyguards, I'm not kidding.
Michael: I will.
Carly: And you know what, Michael? Don't give Tony such a hard time driving like you do Max. He knows how to get to the mall.
Michael: I know!
Carly: Stay close to the guard -- I'm not kidding.
Michael: I know.
Carly: Really, that's an order from your father.
Jax: Listen to your mom, okay?
Jax: She's right, she knows everything.
Carly: A laptop for a kindergartener.
Jax: Act of genius -- calling Leticia, huh? Genius.
Carly: I like school supply shopping with my kids.
Jax: Well, I'm sure they'll forget something and you can go back with them later.
Carly: I don't understand -- I thought you had to rush off straight to the hotel.
Jax: I don't -- we have making up to do.
Jax: Mm-hmm. I don't want to miss a moment.
Carly: Are you sure about that?
Trevor: I am really unhappy to see you back here at Sonny’s.
Kate: Honestly, Trevor, we've been through this. Sonny and I are neighbors -- Warren was here for a cookout for -- for Father's Day, for heaven sakes. We visit back and forth all the time.
Sonny: Actually, I invited Kate over here -- not like you, who just barges in here and threatens me.
Trevor: I don't make threats.
Kate: Of course you don’t. Of course you don’t. None of us do. We're all adults, right? We're not children fighting on a playground.
Trevor: I exercise influence.
Sonny: That supposed to scare me?
Trevor: You have a very unrealistic opinion of your own importance.
Sonny: Yeah? Well, you're old and past your prime. You don't get to come to my house, giving me orders, making demands.
Trevor: Try me.
Kate: Okay, all right, all right. Enough, both of you. Just -- you need a time-out, all right? Let's just step back, take a deep breath. Granted, we got off to a rough start, but there is no -- no reason for this level of animosity.
Trevor: Kate? You better leave now, or you're going to make me really disappointed in you.
Spinelli: The Jackal has roamed the far reaches of the web and only found these accounts, and they're -- they're rumor and speculation at best.
Jason: What about the police report?
Spinelli: It's sketchy at best. The case was never solved, which only fuels the metaphorical fire. And so there's no way to verify this grisly and unsettling story.
Jason: Nothing like that's going to happen here.
Spinelli: Look, have -- have you confirmed that Anthony Zacchara, brutal mob boss, is actually headed to Port Charles?
Spinelli: Well, are you sure that Trevor Lansing is a frontman, as it were?
Jason: Yes, I am.
Spinelli: Oh, come on. Perhaps he's just visiting the fashionista and the dastardly D.A.
Jason: Look, Ric's lived here for years; his father has never come to visit him. Trevor Lansing isn't the kind of lawyer who would do anything for free. He's come here to check out Port Charles, he's using Ric and Kate as an excuse -- to clear the way for the real threat.
Jason: Yeah? No, no, no, it's okay. It's okay, it's good that you called. Just keep the kids in the mall, where people can see you. Okay? I'm on my way.
Kate: Well, I would certainly never want to disappoint you, Trevor. But I think we're a little late in the game for you to be ordering me out of the room or dictating who my friends are.
Trevor: Then I'm going to make it quite simple for you -- you're either with Sonny or you're with me.
Sonny: You don't own Kate. You don't get to come in here and tell her what to do in my house.
Trevor: Sonny resents me and everything I stand for -- that's why he's so suddenly interested in you.
Sonny: Kate and I have been friends for a long time -- you didn't know that, Trevor?
Trevor: And Sonny responds to competition -- with intimidation and fear, as always.
Sonny: You're nowhere near that important in my life anymore, Trevor.
Trevor: You're either lying, or you have seriously misread the situation.
Sonny: You speaking for yourself or as a frontman for Anthony Zacchara?
Trevor: He's implying that I work for organized crime to frighten you --
Trevor: And to drag me down to his level.
Kate: Okay, I hate -- I hate this. I hate to see this level of resentment and antipathy between you. But I do not respond to ultimatums, Trevor, especially between friends. They're counterproductive and unfair, and I -- I have no intention of choosing between you and Sonny.
Trevor: You just did.
[Door opens and closes]
Jerry: Nikolas Cassadine, how wonderful to see you. How are you feeling? No trouble breathing? Plenty of energy?
Nikolas: Oh, because of the -- that's -- that's pretty fun-- I can't believe that Jax actually lets you live here.
Jerry: Well, I do miss your home, I have to admit. How is Emily and little Spencer?
Nikolas: Just stay away from my family.
Marty: Can I be of assistance here?
Jerry: No, no, no, it's fine. I think Mr. Cassadine needs a stiff drink, or maybe --
Nikolas: Stay away from my family.
Marty: Mr. Cassadine -- please, Sir.
Jerry: You know what? If you want to protect your family, Prince Cassadine, I suggest you get this aggression under control. It could get you in serious trouble, don't you think?
Georgie: How can I help?
Maxie: You can’t.
Georgie: Maxie, listen, I picked up a really weird vibe between you and Logan --
Maxie: I don't need a lecture, Georgie. I'm fine.
Georgie: Maxie, you're my sister, and I can tell when you're in pain, and sometimes with you, pain escalates pretty quickly into disaster. So before you start seducing a married man or --
Maxie: What do you want to hear, Georgie? That I love Coop? I do. That I lost him? I did -- for no good reason.
Georgie: What happened?
Maxie: I can't stand Logan, but I can't stay away from him, either. He makes me so angry -- I slept with him.
Maxie: I told you why.
Georgie: No, you're definitely leaving something out. Why would Logan sleep with you when he's so crazy about Lulu?
Maxie: Uh -- because he's a lying pig and they both deserve each other?
Spinelli: Ladies, hi.
Spinelli: Uh, greetings, bad blond one, and faithful friend and dispenser of wisdom.
Georgie: That's me.
Spinelli: Yeah. Um, have either of you seen the -- the --
Maxie: Why do you want to know?
Spinelli: I have to apologize.
Singer: Familiar in a strange land
Ric: You are exactly one phone call away from being assigned back to active duty -- just long enough to be court-martialed and sent to military prison.
Logan: Just -- just listen, all right? Whatever Sonny and Jason have planned, it hasn't come down to me.
Ric: Hey, don't -- don't waste my time with excuses. You find out when and where Sonny's planning on moving against Zacchara, and you make sure that I find out everything that Sonny knows about Trevor Lansing.
Trevor: I'm sorry to keep you waiting -- that meeting was late.
Jerry: Of course.
Trevor: But Mr. Zacchara is really pleased that you're interested in his proposal. He'd like to discuss it with you in further detail.
Jerry: Well, just to be clear, I don't negotiate through third parties -- even discreet attorneys such as yourself. If Mr. Zacchara wants to deal with me, he'll have to do it in person.
Kate: I have never seen Trevor behave that way.
Sonny: He's not after you, he's after --
Kate: He was like a stranger, he was like -- he was like someone I don't know or want to know. I mean, granted, it's been years since we've been seriously involved, but he's one of the most important people in my life.
Sonny: So you were sleeping together for, what, five years?
Kate: It was a long time ago, Sonny, I told you.
Sonny: Well, I'm just saying --
Kate: It was not long after I arrived in the City, but it was all very grown-up.
Kate: There was never an expectation of marriage for either one of us. But I did care very deeply for him.
Sonny: So this was after Princeton?
Kate: I was -- I was an entry-level editorial assistant at "Couture."
Kate: There was never any reason for him to meet my family, or for me to know much about his –
Kate: But what we had was real. Trevor is the one who taught me how New York really works. He taught me how to navigate a formal party, how to receive the right invitations. He made sure that Warren noticed me -- not that I wouldn't have been noticed anyway -- I worked like a dog -- but he definitely sped things along. He was an amazing mentor, and he remained a dear friend, and I am -- I'm grateful. I'm -- I was, I am, I'm grateful for all of that.
Sonny: Hey, hey, hey, look, there's -- it's great to be loyal.
Kate: That man -- that man who was here today? I -- I would not have believed it if I hadn't seen it for myself.
Sonny: Well, you know how it works -- you create an identity for yourself, right, and you try working really hard at being that. But deep down inside, you never lose the rest of your history.
Kate: I suppose.
Sonny: So no matter what, you know, you'll always be Connie Falconeri. And you can always remember how I carried you into the ocean at Coney Island.
Kate: Yeah. I will.
Sonny: And Trevor will always be a cold, selfish man, who expects his woman to give up her 6-year-old son. And the man he works for is much, much worse.
Kate: Anthony Zacchara?
Sonny: Yes, yes, yes. So, you know, you might want to do yourself a favor and get out while you still can.
Carly: No, I'd like the carpet installed as soon as possible. Cut through the red tape, you don't have to follow the rules. Let me call you back. What's going on?
Leticia: Jason picked us up.
Carly: You know what? I would love to see what you got, but I need to talk to Uncle Jason about something. So, Michael, can you please set this up for Morgan?
Michael: All right.
Carly: And don't just plug it in, please, show him how to use it, spend some time --
Michael: Any games?
Carly: Yes, of course.
Michael: Okay. Come on.
Carly: Okay, what happened?
Jason: Somebody screwed up and left Leticia and the boys without a guard. And she didn't feel safe walking to the car, didn't want to deal with any of the drivers except for Max or Milo, so she called me.
Carly: That's it? I about had a heart attack, and that was it?
Jason: Leaving the kids unguarded is a serious problem, Carly.
Carly: They were in a mall filled with a thousand people there, Jason.
Jason: You and the boys need to be guarded all the time. You're not safe.
Jax: I understand you're upset about an office space? What seems to be the problem?
Nikolas: Yes, I come by to close the deal, only to find out that my entire space has been leased to another party? What --
Jax: Let me find out what happened, okay?
Nikolas: No, I know what happened. I get into an altercation with your brother, so you pull the lease -- that's what happened.
Jax: I was thinking more along the lines of computer glitch.
Nikolas: Compu-- come on, you've been protecting your brother for months now, come on.
Jax: Nikolas, for your information, my brother and I aren't speaking.
Nikolas: Okay, so, what, you're going to give me the space?
Jax: I don't have a problem giving you a space. Now, let me just find out, okay?
Emily: Hi. I have about two minutes and I can't be late for rounds, but I can't wait to see your new office.
Nikolas: Well, there's a bit of a problem with the -- with the lease here.
Jax: We'll do our best to get you another space as soon as possible.
Nikolas: Are you going to tell me what happened?
Jax: Well, somebody from your office called just this morning to back out. So my company didn't cancel, yours did.
Georgie: It's on the house -- you fixed the waffle iron.
Spinelli: Well, thank you, faithful friend and dispenser of wisdom.
Georgie: Well, you -- you can't live on barbecued potato chips and orange soda.
Spinelli: Correct. You know your prior counsel was also correct? Logan is still among the living. His immediate demise is no one's priority. Stone Cold, at worst, wants him fired, and even that may have to wait because more important things are at hand.
Georgie: Why do you want to apologize to him?
Spinelli: Uh -- well, see, Lulu was most upset to find that I had told Stone Cold about the unworthy one's nefarious deeds. And so I figured if I came to him in peace --
Georgie: Then Lulu wouldn't be mad at you anymore.
Spinelli: Most insightful observation, dispenser of wisdom.
Georgie: You know, but Logan is really mean to you. I don't think that you should apologize to him. You know, Lulu can't stay mad at you forever.
Spinelli: Your insight and intellect are impeccable.
Georgie: Well, I know what it's like to like someone that doesn't see what's right in front of them.
Spinelli: Okay, even so, you know, maybe I judged the unworthy one too harshly and too soon. Yes, he is rough around the edges. Yes, his intellect is challenged in all areas --
Georgie: Dumb as dirt.
Spinelli: Thank you.
Spinelli: So well put -- but, yeah, he's cocky. He's cocky, and he's haunted by dark and unspoken secrets and -- but he has no respect for me at all -- but Lulu says it's just an act.
Georgie: Yeah -- something about Logan is definitely an act.
Spinelli: Indeed. But he -- you know, maybe -- maybe the unworthy one isn't so unworthy after all.
Georgie: Or maybe he's even more unworthy than you think.
Maxie: What, are you stalking me now?
Logan: You listen to me, I got a work situation that's going to require every bit of my attention.
Maxie: Okay, so go to work, and maybe you'll get caught in a shootout.
Logan: Hey, you know what? You're just mad, all right? And you're mad because your little plan with Lulu -- it didn't pan out. You see, she didn't get humiliated, she didn't get hurt. Instead, you got exposed for the little lying slut that you really are, and you lost Coop.
Maxie: I'm sorry, what makes you think this is over?
Logan: Because it is.
Maxie: No, no, no, it's not over until Lulu knows the truth -- you slept with her on a bet, you paid off that bet by sleeping with me. You weren't forced, you definitely weren't complaining -- I'd say you were enthusiastic. And even though you can't admit it now, you enjoyed having sex with me way more than you did with Lulu, and I think she should know that.
Logan: And I think you should know this, okay? You say anything -- and I mean anything to her about us sleeping together -- and you're going to regret it.
Kate: Are you trying to get rid of me? Hmm? It's not very flattering.
Sonny: No. I'm not kidding.
Kate: You never are.
Sonny: This thing between Trevor and me is going to get real ugly.
Kate: I'm sure that he will go back to Manhattan sooner or later.
Sonny: Well, maybe that's probably where you should go, because right now it's not a good idea to be associated with me.
Kate: I appreciate your concern. I do, but, you know, I have some experience navigating troubled waters, and I have found that the best strategy is to remain courteous but neutral. It worked last season at the fashion week when Donatella --
Sonny: Okay, okay, listen -- listen to me. This is not a fashion show, or whatever, okay? The worst thing that can happen isn't getting fired or you fall down on a photo shoot. In my world, you lose, you die.
Kate: Are you trying to frighten me?
Sonny: I'm not trying -- I'm just telling you -- I'm being as honest as I can be, so that way, you do whatever you want with it.
Sonny: I got to get the phone. Hello?
Jason: Michael and Morgan were left without guards this afternoon.
Spinelli: Um, does the faithful friend and dispenser of wisdom have a reason to believe that the unworthy one is, in fact, unworthy?
Georgie: You know, well, Jason doesn’t like him, right?
Spinelli: Okay, you're dodging the question -- why?
Georgie: Spinelli, I'm sorry, I just feel like I should stay out of the whole thing.
Spinelli: Another dodge -- which I will honor and respect. Yes, Stone Cold is not fond of the unworthy one, but Stone Cold is also aware that his grasshopper is -- a wimp.
Georgie: Not to everyone.
Spinelli: But, see, Stone Cold tends to be overprotective of his grasshopper, hence his stone-cold deadly anger.
Georgie: Does Jason get upset about everything that you tell him?
Spinelli: Uh -- no. Actually, the opposite, because his grasshopper tends to exaggerate.
Georgie: Okay, but Jason had no problem believing the worst about what you told him about Logan.
Georgie: Okay, which is reason to believe that Jason has already seen something in Logan that he didn't like. Jason has great instincts.
Spinelli: Your logic is pure and straightforward, and, yes, Stone Cold's instincts are without peer. But that -- see, it's irrelevant, because no matter what the truth may be, fair Lulu refuses to hear anything bad about the unworthy one.
Logan: There is no way that I'm going to let you mess things up for me.
Maxie: You can't stop me.
Logan: How do you think your daddy would react if he found drugs in your room?
Maxie: Like I can't lie my way out of that one.
Logan: You leave this alone, Maxie, or I will make your life a living hell -- you got that?
Maxie: Lulu's going to find out the truth maybe sooner than you think, because now, Logan, I have nothing to lose.
Logan: You stay the hell away from her -- you understand me?
Max: Excuse me, Mr. Corinthos would like to see you.
Milo: Let's go.
Trevor: Thank you.
Marty: You're welcome.
Kate: Trevor? What just happened at Sonny's -- I've known you for years and I've never seen you behave like that. What were you thinking?
Trevor: I could ask you the same question.
Kate: Look, I'm sorry about the animosity between you and Sonny, but it has nothing to do with me, and it shouldn't affect our friendship.
Trevor: Katie, why did you choose Sonny over me?
Kate: Why did you ask me to? It's completely unfair. I refuse to cut ties with Sonny on demand, but I also have no desire to cut ties with you.
Trevor: So what you're saying is you really thought about it, and you realized how damaging I could be if I turn against you.
Kate: No, Trevor. I was actually just trying to preserve a friendship which meant a great deal to me. But that doesn't mean that I will allow myself to be blackmailed -- emotionally or otherwise.
Trevor: Katherine, you've shown really poor judgment, and now you got to live with the consequences.
Carly: Sonny's furious, isn't he?
Jason: He's okay.
Carly: How can I figure out what to do if you don't tell me what's going on?
Jason: Okay, I think he threw something.
Carly: This whole situation is killing him -- dealing with Trevor Lansing, finding out that Kate's been seeing the guy. I can't stand the woman, but Sonny was interested – it has to make everything worse.
Jason: Sonny can keep business separate from his personal life, Carly.
Carly: Trevor brings up a whole bunch of stuff that Sonny went through as a little boy, stuff that he thought he got over. And you know what? Maybe he has, but it still hurts him. I wish I could help him.
Jason: You can.
Sonny: It's a real bad time right now, Ric.
Ric: Pressure getting to you? So let me ask you, what's worse -- having my father in town and finding out that he's sleeping with your would-be girlfriend, or the fear that Anthony Zacchara is on his way?
Sonny: If Zacchara is headed for Port Charles, you should be nervous.
Ric: I can handle it, Sonny.
Sonny: Have you done any research on this man?
Ric: You know what? I'm going to choose not to buy into your paranoia here.
Sonny: Okay, do you -- do you know that he targets the families of his enemies? And since everybody at this point knows that we're brothers, it could cost you your life.
Ric: So what is that, a threat?
Sonny: No. It's a warning, brother.
Nikolas: Yes, I'll hold.
Alfred: The contractor left an estimate for the barn renovations. It seems excessive, if I may say so -- and you have four messages from Europe, two from Hong Kong.
Nikolas: All right, we'll deal with that later.
Alfred: Certainly, Sir.
Nikolas: Yes, who -- who canceled the lease on the Metro Court offices? It -- it wasn't cleared by me, I didn't approve it. Who -- Alfred? You canceled the lease?
Alfred: Yes, Sir, I did.
Georgie: Waffle number two.
Spinelli: You know, perhaps I should appeal to Stone Cold for instruction and guidance.
Georgie: I thought you already did.
Spinelli: Well, not on the question of the unworthy one -- though, it is a related subject. It's more, um -- the Jackal is considering revisiting the question of an armed response.
Georgie: Are you sure you want to do that?
Spinelli: Well -- yeah. Okay, well, so my previous attempts at learning the art of firearms has not necessarily --
Georgie: Wait, you want to carry a gun?
Spinelli: Well, I mean, maybe not actually carry said weapon, per se, but, you know, learn the basic principles of operation and, I don't know, take some target practice, become more proficient at "shooting," as it were.
Georgie: Spinelli, say you were to ever shoot a gun -- for whatever reason -- and you hit somebody innocent. You would have to live with that guilt for the rest of your life, not to mention you would probably go to prison.
Spinelli: Okay, those are sobering considerations, but, look, let me point out that Stone Cold carries a licensed firearm with him at all times, and he seems both effective and judicious when he elects to use it.
Georgie: You're not Jason, and all of the shooting lessons in the world is not going to make you that.
Spinelli: But he could teach me to be more like him.
Georgie: I don't mean any offense by this, but why would you want to be? I -- you know, I don't know Jason all that well, but from what I can see, he lives a pretty bleak life. And let's be honest -- he kills people for Sonny.
Spinelli: Okay, those allegations have never been proven, and were, in fact, heartily refuted recently when Stone Cold was acquitted of killing the possibly undead but always evil Darth Alcazar.
Georgie: Okay. Even if all the people that Jason's ever killed deserved it, it is still a relentlessly negative, destructive way to live your life. Spinelli, you are smart and funny, and, you know, obviously, you're a genius on the computer. But I can tell by the way that you talk that you read and you expand your mind, and you are curious about things. What's Jason interested in? What --
Georgie: Have you ever seen the guy enthusiastic about anything? I understand that he's brain-damaged -- and he probably can't help himself -- but why would anybody choose a life like that, especially you? You're great just the way you are. Of course, it's just my opinion. Hmm.
Spinelli: As always, the faithful friend and dispenser of wisdom has given the Jackal much to consider. Eh?
Spinelli: Do you want the big strawberry?
Georgie: No, you can have it -- I'll have the whipped cream.
Spinelli: You're the best.
Georgie: Ha-ha, I know.
Jerry: I was expecting to hear from you. Yes, well, your lawyer seems competent, but I require face time -- no, I don't negotiate via telephone. Well, I'm looking forward to meeting you in person, Mr. Zacchara. Goodbye.
Jason: You need to act like a mom. Don't act out on impulse, don't do something crazy in one of your crazy plans, and I'm telling you right now, if Jax disappears again, you do not go after him.
Carly: You're scaring me.
Jason: Okay, this is very serious, Carly. Why else would I give Jerry, of all people, the heads-up? Leaving the kids with no guards was a huge mistake!
Carly: Something's different. You're more concerned, and I want to know why. What's going on? Will you tell me?
Jason: Okay. Spinelli did some research, and he found out that when Zacchara was consolidating power in Manhattan, he was opposed by a guy named Petri. Okay, it was -- it was a question of territory -- like what could happen here. Anyway, Petri had a son -- he was a school teacher, he hadn't even seen his father for several years, okay? He lived somewhere in Ohio with his wife and his two kids -- they were all killed. Executed. The crime was never solved. That's how Zacchara deals with his enemies.
Sonny: You have any idea why you’re here?
Logan: Some sore of misunderstanding.
Sonny: You were assigned to guard my children.
Logan: I'm sorry, all right? I had something come up, and I --
Sonny: "You had something come up"?
Logan: Yes, Sir.
Sonny: You had something come up that was more important than my children? Answer me!
Logan: I'm sorry. I didn't realize that --
Sonny: You put my sons in danger, you left them wide open for my enemies to hit. My nanny had the sense to call, but if she hadn't, if something happened to them, you know what would've happened to you? You'd be dead right now! As a matter of fact, that's not a bad idea.
Trevor: One little piggie went to market, one little piggie stayed home. One little piggie had roast beef, and one little piggie had none. Ha. Oh, Richard, my granddaughter and I are finally getting to know one another. Aren't we, sweetheart?
Ric: I thought I told you not to let anybody in the house.
Sally: But he's your father.
Trevor: Ah, Richard, don't get so upset. Sally's doing a great job. And now that I met Molly, I don't think I'm ever going to let her go.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Carly: Do I need to move my kids away to keep them safe?
Ric: Don't you ever come near my daughter.
Trevor: You could lose that beautiful little girl.
