Jerry: You know what? It's a nasty habit -- sneaking up on people.
Jax: Spoken like a man who has reason to be paranoid. Truth is, you were too absorbed in your phone call to realize I was actually standing here. That could only mean trouble.
Carly: You're my best friend, and I count on you to tell me the truth. So you tell me, do I need to move my kids away from Port Charles to keep them safe?
Alexis: Hey. Hi.
Alexis: How are you?
Sam: Ooh! It's so good to see you.
Alexis: Same here.
Georgie: Hey. Are you two ordering?
Alexis: Oh, gosh. After all the French food I ate, I'm just going to have fruit and coffee, Georgie, thanks.
Georgie: Sounds great.
Sam: Okay. Just coffee, thank you.
Sam: Welcome home. How was Paris?
Alexis: It was great, it was nice. It was hot, it was August, so there was hardly anyone there, no lines.
Alexis: I have something that you're going to like. I brought you back something, so are you going to come see?
Sam: Yes, of course I will. I certainly will.
Alexis: Now, Kristina, you see, was old enough this time. When we went to the museums, I think she really kind of got some of it, and I hired a tutor to give her some sketch classes, and I know this is coming from me, but I think she really has some artistic flare.
Sam: Okay, that's good. I think she gets that from your side of the family.
Alexis: Yeah, right.
Sam: Um, I don't -- sorry to change the subject, but I don't suppose that you've spoken to Ric since you've been back?
Alexis: I'm going over there to see Molly right now.
Sam: Okay, then I don't know if you know that Ric's father, Trevor, is in town.
Alexis: Molly's grandfather is here?
Trevor: Molly, do you see who's home? Can you say "Daddy"?
Ric: Hi, sweetheart. Why don't you come see Daddy now, okay?
Trevor: No, no, no, we're just having a lot of fun, Ric. You know what I think? I think that my granddaughter and I should spend a whole lot more time together.
Trevor: What's this?
Nikolas: What possessed you to tell the Metro Court that I wasn't going to sign my office lease?
Alfred: I'm so sorry, Sir. I've often heard you say how you hate spending time away from Spencer.
Nikolas: What? That doesn't give you the authority to cancel my arrangements.
Alfred: Of course you're right, Sir, but if I may, I know how you cherish privacy, especially in business. You have a discreet staff right here who support you. I tried to anticipate what would be your logical conclusion.
Nikolas: See, you think I'm too eccentric to work in the real world, is that it?
Alfred: The business community here in Port Charles isn't accustomed to a man of your pedigree.
Nikolas: But I have a different agenda -- the less time I spend working here, the less likely my plan will be discovered. Do you understand?
Lucky: Nikolas, you got a minute?
Nikolas: Of course, always. You overstepped, it can't happen again. Is that clear?
Alfred: Very clear, Sir.
Lucky: That didn't sound good.
Nikolas: No. It's been handled. How are you? It's good to see you. What's going on?
Lucky: Ahem. Well, I just need a reasonable man with a reasonable opinion.
Nikolas: And you came to see me?
Lucky: Do you think Elizabeth and I have a chance?
Jerry: Oh, come on, no need to act surprised. I'm always in some kind of trouble; it's the degrees that vary.
Jax: Right -- it used to be annoying, and now it's lethal.
Jerry: Well, perhaps, but not for you, little brother, never for you.
Jax: Well, that's because I'm really lucky, Jerry. See, something crystallized for me when I watched you kill the woman you claimed to love in cold blood. I realized that nothing's off-limits for you, that you would turn on me the same way you turned on Irina if the stakes were high enough.
Jerry: Well, that's rather ungenerous -- so much for brotherly bond.
Jax: Well, I'll tell you what. For the sake of the bond that we used to have, I'm asking you to leave.
Jerry: Whether you like it or not, things are getting dangerous around here, so you need me more than ever.
Jason: You and the boys could leave the state, you could leave the country. You're still going to be targets, especially to someone like Zacchara who has all kinds of resources.
Carly: Can you tell me something that doesn't scare the hell out of me, please?
Jason: Okay, uh, we're not sure yet how serious this threat is, okay? Zacchara hasn't made contact. All we have is Trevor Lansing showing up. That's it, and we don't even know if he works for Zacchara because he won't admit it.
Carly: Why are you scaring me like this?
Jason: Because we need to be prepared. You and the boys are the easiest, most effective way to get to Sonny.
Jason: So what -- just -- it's okay. Whatever happens, whether you stay or go, I just need to know that you're protected at all times.
Carly: I thought if I married Jax, I'd have a normal life.
Jason: I'm sorry, Carly.
Carly: It's not your fault, okay? It's -- it's not your fault. The danger comes from Sonny. And I've always known it was there, but usually I ignored or I rationalized it away. But if you're telling me my kids are at risk, then I have to do something.
Jason: I'm just telling you the facts that I have right now. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide what's best for you and your kids.
Alexis: I called Ric twice a day to speak to Molly -- regardless of the time change -- he never mentioned one word about his father being here.
Sam: Okay, I'm -- I'm not exactly sure when Ric found out, if that means --
Alexis: Well, did you meet Trevor? What is he like?
Sam: He is your father-in-law.
Alexis: I've never met him, I don't know him. He's been estranged from Ric since I've known Ric. All I know is he's cold, he's distant, he never had any interest in Ric or the rest of his family. But, then again, knowing how Ric now distorts the truth, he's probably a perfectly nice guy.
Alexis: I hate the idea of Molly having to suffer through the dysfunctional family reunion.
Trevor: Look at you, look at --
Ric: Never been one for warm feelings towards children.
Trevor: That's because the child in my life was always so sullen and unappealing -- nothing like this little girl.
Ric: You know what? I think it's time for Molly's nap.
Trevor: Oh. Sally: If you don't mind my taking her?
Ric: No, it's fine. I just don't want her schedule disrupted.
Trevor: Bye-bye, tootsie.
Ric: Go ahead, sweetheart. I'll be in later.
Ric: Don't you ever come near my daughter again.
Trevor: Richard, you're not in any position to give orders. And if you don't change that attitude fast, you could lose that beautiful little girl -- for good.
Nikolas: I have no objectivity about you and Elizabeth, okay? I love you both, but I want you to be happy, and I can only naturally assume that eventually you'll be happy together.
Lucky: I just don't know where we are anymore.
Nikolas: Well, look, you've made mistakes, she's made mistakes. But -- but I have faith in you. You're sober, I think -- I think that you're committed to staying that way, you love your family. But -- but if you're looking for an objective opinion here, I -- I just can't, I'm too close to it. The best that I can do for you is just promise that I'll support whatever you decide.
Lucky: Last night Elizabeth said that my anger is hurting the kids, and she was ready to leave.
Nikolas: Well -- well, I think that's -- that's a little arbitrary, given that you have plenty of reasons to be angry.
Lucky: It made me realize that I can't let Elizabeth go.
Emily: How are you?
Elizabeth: Glad to be busy. I have some tests you ordered.
Emily: Yeah -- oh, I can't believe the summer is practically over.
Elizabeth: I know, me, too. I wanted to see more of you guys -- I've missed you.
Emily: I know, I've missed you, too. Listen, why don't we plan a day at the beach before the weather turns? You know, you and Lucky, me and Nikolas -- just like old times, except with babies?
Emily: Spencer needs to hang out with his cousins, and Lucky and Nikolas haven't had any time to just be together.
Elizabeth: Okay. Sounds great.
Emily: Yeah? Do you think Lucky's up for it?
Elizabeth: Hmm. If you'd have asked me yesterday, I would've told you "when hell freezes over." But we talked things out last night and have agreed that all this anger and resentment isn't good for the kids, so we said we would try again.
Emily: Okay. Hope it works out.
Elizabeth: At least we've agreed to stop hurting each other. It's worth a try.
Jason: Alcazar's death left a -- a vacuum, okay, and we -- we knew that might be possible because Port Charles is a valuable asset to anyone who wants to ship goods from here to Canada. Okay, I believe that Zacchara sent Trevor Lansing to check out Sonny and his organization.
Carly: Can't Sonny negotiate with him?
Jason: How's he going to negotiate to somebody who hasn't shown himself yet?
Carly: What if he shows himself by taking out Sonny's family like he did with that other guy, Jason?
Jason: Okay, I know you're worried, but I think he's got to be more careful this time. If he wants to take over this territory, he can't -- he can't hurt more innocent people, people who are going to turn against him or try to kill him. I think he's going to have to explore different ways, different tactics.
Carly: So you think he might leave us alone?
Jason: I think that you and the boys are safe in Port Charles under guard. But, again, this is a decision that you're going to have to make.
Alexis: All right, we have to be very careful about how we do this because I doubt that Ric is handling the sudden appearance of his father in a very healthy way.
Sam: Okay, why don't you just explain that you want to protect Molly from an emotionally dysfunctional situation?
Alexis: "Explain"? We can barely stand to be in the same room with each other.
Sam: Okay, brace yourself -- Ric does have another reason to be on edge. You've heard of Anthony Zacchara, right?
Alexis: The mobster?
Sam: Yeah. Well, Zacchara may be moving into Port Charles to take over Sonny's business. Everyone is nervous, to say the least. I -- um -- I even hired a bodyguard.
Ric: I don't see you for 10 years, you suddenly drop out of the sky, and you think you're going to take my daughter?
Trevor: Oh, Richard, you know what I'm thinking? That Molly would be better off away from you.
Ric: You know what? You don't give a damn about your granddaughter other than the leverage that she provides you with.
Trevor: Come on, Richard, don't make any assumptions. I happen to think that Molly is a special child, and it would be totally irresponsible of me if I didn't try to protect her from your toxic influence.
Ric: Okay, listen closely. You will never take my child.
Trevor: Richard, I'm connected to some very important, influential people, and I will not hesitate to call old friends if I must.
Ric: You don't got a leg to stand on.
Trevor: Yeah. "My unbalanced son and his equally unbalanced paramour produced this beautiful little child."
Ric: No, see, Alexis and I were married when we had Molly.
Trevor: Yes, and she was an unfit mother, as you so ably proved in court. Unfortunately, sadly, you turned out to be just as bad. I, as the responsible grandfather, must plead for emergency guardianship.
Ric: What's it going to take to make you go away?
Trevor: Now you're talking. Your half brother is becoming a hindrance. Make it so that he cannot do business in Port Charles -- or anywhere else, for that matter.
Ric: It's not that easy.
Trevor: We're going to pass up a conversation about your ineptitude for another day. Suffice it to say, huh, if Sonny remains free, you're going to lose your little girl for good. It's that simple.
Spinelli: Hi. Salutations, faithful friend and dispenser of wisdom.
Georgie: Could I be more boring?
Spinelli: Um -- hey, the Jackal wishes to express his -- his gratitude for your kindness and patience while I was venting my uncertainties vis-ŗ-vis the true character of the unworthy one. But I -- but not knowing your personal taste when I was looking for a way to express my appreciation, I -- anyway, here.
Spinelli: I -- you're not allergic, are you?
Georgie: No, no.
Spinelli: No, I'm just saying, because sometimes I have a bit of a rash with chocolate.
Georgie: No, no, no, it's -- it's fine. It -- it's fantastic, I -- this is very Forrest Gump of you.
Spinelli: Oh. Open it, open it.
Georgie: I love truffles.
Spinelli: Yeah. Um, it's a website that specializes in the coolest destinations in Europe, you know, off the beaten tourist track, so to speak, where an intrepid voyager like yourself can find authentic local color.
Georgie: This is fantastic, Spinelli! I'm -- I'm planning on spending my junior year abroad.
Spinelli: Right -- um -- your unfortunate elder sibling, the bad blond one -- when harassing you one day, revealed that tidbit, and the Jackal, missing nothing, filed it away, and rebooted it when a moment was needed for appreciation for your sympathetic ear.
Georgie: Oh, this is so great. Thank you so much. Maybe you could help me navigate it sometime.
Spinelli: Well, the ace of cyberspace would be honored to navigate it with you sometime.
Carly: I want you to listen to me. It is very important that you stay within view of your guard. I'm serious -- that means no hide-and-seek and no goofing off. Leticia was right to call Jason. We can't take chances like that, okay?
Michael: All right.
Carly: Okay. Yes.
[Knock on door]
Carly: Excuse me.
Carly: What do you want?
Logan: Everyone's in place, ma'am. Um -- your children are covered. I'd like to talk to you, though, to clear up that mix-up before.
Carly: Leticia, can you take the boys upstairs, play some games, watch a video?
Michael: All right.
Carly: So let me guess -- it was you, right? You're the one that didn't show up when you were supposed to? You left Leticia and my boys without proper protection.
Logan: And I want to apologize, and I hope that you can forgive me -- if nothing else, for Lulu's sake.
Carly: Don't do that. Don't use your connection with Lulu to try and save your butt.
Jerry: Meeting someone?
Sam: Oh, go away.
Jerry: Well, my meeting hasn't shown up, either. So as long as both parties are late, why don't we spend a little time together, darling?
Sam: You walk away, or I'm going to scream.
Jerry: Oh, that would be awkward -- you, the strong, capable star of "Everyday Heroes" crying for help -- and why, exactly?
Sam: Why? Because you are a demented psychopath, and I don't want to be anywhere near you.
Jerry: Well, you must have me confused with someone else -- no worries, it happens all the time. But here we are, in the view of everyone, so you have nothing to be afraid of.
Sam: No? Well, that's how little you know -- a rival mob boss is pressuring Sonny's organization, and they might want to target me just to get back at Jason.
Jerry: Oh, this is sad, almost pathetic -- I mean, a survivor like you playing victim so that your ex-lover can ride in for the rescue? Tut-tut.
Alexis: I'm sorry, I should've called first, but I'm worried -- or, you tell me how worried I need to be about Kristina. And this -- this Zacchara person -- is he a threat?
Jason: Well, he -- yeah. I don't think Kristina is in danger, because she's connected to Ric, which also means she's connected to Trevor Lansing -- he's Zacchara's lawyer.
Alexis: Molly's grandfather is a part of this?
[Female singing operatic notes]
Carly: How much do you think you can get away with just because you're dating Lulu?
Logan: Look -- no. I would not use Lulu to get a free pass from anyone.
Carly: I hope not. Because Lulu has a lot of people who care about how she's treated, including Sonny. Speaking of which, are you sure you still have a job after you left Sonny's kids hanging out to dry?
Logan: You know what? All I came here to do was apologize. That's it, okay?
Carly: Heads up, Logan -- I don't trust you. And Jason doesn't like you, and Jason has a way of making people he doesn't like disappear. Consider that a friendly warning.
Spinelli: As you can see, there are many destinations which have remained marginally untouristed and are ripe for expedition by adventurous travelers.
Georgie: I have read so many books that are set in Europe, I cannot wait to actually go.
Spinelli: Has the faithful friend and dispenser of wisdom chosen a primary destination?
Georgie: Well, the course that I -- I have applied for is based in Rome, which includes travels to related sites. Like -- like, you could get to go to where the picture was actually painted, or where the actual historical event took place. I know, I know -- it's amazing.
Spinelli: The Jackal is envious. To stand in, like, the roman forum, or the ruins of Pompeii -- I mean, no doubt, you will expand what is already a formidable arsenal of knowledge.
Georgie: Thank you. You know, what if you went in on the program?
Spinelli: Well, I mean, the Jackal assumes you had to be a student, right, and probably in good standing of a licensed institution of higher learning, like maybe P.C.U. or the like, and the Jackal is no longer a member of that or any undergraduate body.
Georgie: I've been meaning to ask you, why did you quit school?
Spinelli: Um -- well, initially, my life was in danger. So I was just trying to flee the city of Port Charles to seek refuge with my granny. But once I was dragged back -- which, in itself, was uncomfortable and dismaying, but in retrospect, it turned out to be one of the best things that's ever happened to me. But, unfortunately, I was, you know, too far into the spring semester to resume my classes. But, um, instead I turned my energy to reconstructing Stone Cold's finances and tech support, which turned out to be really technically challenging, and not to mention financially rewarding. So, consequently, I don't have the time --
Georgie: What if Jason died tomorrow?
Spinelli: That's a bit of a harsh hypothetical.
Georgie: Oh -- okay, that -- that came out really harsh. I'm so sorry for that. No, no, this is in reference to the conversation that we were having earlier. Jason kills people for a living for Sonny. I mean, he is -- he's a hit man, which, logic would suggest, that other people are trying to kill him, too. Which makes him a target, which makes it very, very dangerous for you to be living with him. But that -- that's not my point. I know that broadening your intellectual horizons may not sound great right now, but it's really shortsighted. I mean, you don't plan on being a tech guy for the mob forever, do you?
Spinelli: Um -- well, you know, despite being a master of events -- game theory, the Jackal doesn't spend much time projecting his future. Hey, you know, while your trip abroad for your junior year is -- is really inspiring, it -- I just -- leaving home is a lot easier when you're reasonably certain that it's going to still be there when you come back, right? See, my granny was this source of guidance and stability for me, but I never really fit in in Tennessee. I -- I've never really fit in anywhere -- until, by random chance and the auspices of the Blond One, I ended up living with Stone Cold. And despite my regrettably pink room, I -- um -- the Jackal is accepted -- nay, even valued.
Georgie: I know that Jason is your friend, but he's not the only person that thinks you're cool.
Spinelli: Okay, um, point of fact -- Stone Cold doesn't think I'm cool -- in fact, no one does because I am not cool.
Georgie: Yes, you are. And that -- that right there -- that's why. Because you're not some ridiculous poseur like Logan is, you know --
Georgie: Who, by the way is -- is a modernized but much stupider version of a James Dean wannabe.
Spinelli: Wow. Ha! A most active, accurate description.
Georgie: No, no, but you are a true original. You are one of a kind, and that's what makes you really unique.
Spinelli: Wow. Um -- the Jackal is compelled to -- to point out that -- I'm sure the faithful friend and dispenser of wisdom will accrue factual knowledge on her European adventure, but there is no way that you could be wiser than you already are. You are clearly an old soul in a comely and convivial --
Maxie: Excuse me, Mr. Jackal! I need to talk to my sister, so, see ya.
Georgie: Can't you tell that I'm having an -- a very important conversation?
Maxie: And I'm sure you can listen to him babble some other time.
Spinelli: Okay --
Georgie: Maxie --
Spinelli: I don't want to cause any sort of rumble between the faithful friend and dispenser of wisdom and her snarkiest of siblings, so I will simply retire.
Maxie: If that means you're leaving, hurry it up.
Georgie: Was that really necessary?
Maxie: Georgie, can't you at least pretend to sympathize for me?
Sam: I am nobody's victim, Jerry, and I would not go back to Jason if he were the last man on earth.
Jerry: Oh, well, that's a relief. I mean, you're much too vibrant to be hanging around with someone of Jason's limitations. I mean, is it me, or is the man as dull as dirt? Although, I suppose that lack of inner life -- it makes him a very efficient killer.
Sam: Wow! That is an interesting observation coming from someone like you.
Jerry: Don't judge me, Sam. You and I are quite a bit alike -- we want a great deal and we'll do whatever it takes to get it.
Sam: Do not pretend to know me.
Jerry: You're angry because you know I'm right.
Sam: Stay away from me. Excuse me? Hi. Trevor Lansing?
Sam: I'm Sam McCall.
Trevor: Hmm. Well, Sam McCall.
Trevor: To what do I owe this pleasure?
Sam: I just -- um -- I wanted to welcome you to Port Charles. We actually have someone in common -- Molly. She is my half sister and your granddaughter, and -- I don't know -- I think that makes us practically family.
Trevor: Not quite. But you're right; I did see Molly earlier this morning. She's a sweetie, isn't she? And I plan to spend a lot more time with my little granddaughter.
Diane: After the way I -- oh, what's the word? -- buried you at Jason Morganís trial, I am so curious as to what you could possibly have to say to me.
Ric: Well, you managed to convince a jury to free a guilty man -- that's reason to believe that you're good enough to accomplish what I need.
Diane: You -- are you serious? You want to hire me?
Ric: I need for you to go up against the most corrupt, connected man that I know.
Diane: I do "corrupt" and "connected" in my sleep.
Diane: So who's charging you, and with what?
Ric: My father has threatened to file for emergency guardianship of my daughter, Molly.
Diane: On what grounds?
Ric: Well, he needs leverage against me. If I don't cooperate with him, he's going to call in favors from some very important friends -- from the state supreme court, for example.
Diane: Does your father actually have a case against you to take your daughter?
Ric: No, Diane, but whatever he doesn't have on me, I'm sure he's going to fabricate. Look, I just need to protect my daughter, Molly. Now, you just tell me what you need to come onboard, I'll gladly write you a check right now.
Diane: I'm sorry, Ric, but family law is not my area of expertise -- but I will give you a piece of advice for free. If your father is as connected as you say he is, you've already lost.
Carly: Hi. You're definitely making progress.
Jax: Yeah, well, I missed you. How'd your conference call go?
Carly: I -- I had to cancel it. There was a problem with one of Sonny's bodyguards and the boys were left unguarded.
Jax: I don't like the sound of this.
Carly: Jason was there, you know, they were fine, but he's worried. This Anthony Zacchara sent a message to one of his enemies by wiping out the whole family -- the mother, the father, and both kids.
Jax: Wow. I'm sure you -- you'll understand me saying this, but right now I'd like to kill Sonny myself.
Carly: Okay, listen to me -- but right now I need your calm and your reassurance, because we have to think about what we're going to do here.
Jax: Okay, you know what? Let's figure out what's best for this family. I mean, do we stay here and risk getting caught in the crossfire, or do we try to get away?
Georgie: You know, I really don't know who you're more angry with -- Logan or yourself.
Maxie: Fine, Georgie, I get it. I'm self-destructive and I make bad choices, sometimes I'm my own worst enemy, and, yeah, I am definitely an idiot for getting involved with Logan -- but this -- this is not my fault.
Georgie: Oh, Maxie --
Maxie: Georgie, I'm serious. He -- he was hitting on me for months, chasing after me, telling me what a great catch he was, so, of course, eventually, I had sex with him. And then he gets all righteous and moral on me like -- like he was seduced by big, bad me? I mean, it's so hypocritical, it makes me want to -- oh, my God. Nothing you say interests me --
Logan: Shut up, shut up! You need to keep your big mouth shut, all right? From now on, you don't say a word about me to anyone. You understand?
Maxie: Is that a threat?
Georgie: You need to stay the hell -- get away! You need to stay the hell away from my sister.
Logan: Georgie, sweetheart, this is between me and your sister, okay?
Georgie: I'm not joking, Logan. I will call Jason Morgan.
Logan: You --
Georgie: You heard what I said. If you grab her one more time, I will call him -- he is already gunning for you, especially after what you did to Spinelli.
Logan: Oh, whoa, whoa -- what did I do to Spinelli?
Georgie: You beat him up --
Georgie: And, then, you know, you kissed Lulu when she didn't want you to. You go ahead and keep --
Logan: Georgie -- Georgie, you don't have any idea what you're talking about.
Georgie: I know exactly what I'm talking about, and I know exactly what Spinelli saw. So, go ahead -- keep manhandling my sister the way you are, keep manhandling Lulu. I will call Jason, and you'll be toast -- and that's probably the best thing for everyone involved, including Lulu.
Elizabeth: This is nice -- I thought you had to work this afternoon.
Lucky: I changed my schedule. You don't mind, do you?
Elizabeth: No, not at all.
Lucky: I thought we could make this some family time.
Elizabeth: It's funny -- Emily and I were just talking about that. I thought maybe we could get the kids together and go to the beach before the summer's over.
Lucky: Meanwhile, while we're waiting, I think we could do the next best thing. I could fill up Cam's wading pool and we could have, you know, a swim party for the kids in the backyard.
Elizabeth: I would love that. Wait a minute. The last time you filled up the pool, I think you turned the hose on me.
Lucky: Oh -- you know, it was all kind of part of the fun.
Elizabeth: Yeah, well, this time I'm going to be in charge of the hose, and payback is part of the picture.
Lucky: Okay, first one dressed gets the hose!
Sam: So the custody hearing was brutal for Alexis -- she was still in chemo and she really wasn't in any shape to be defending herself.
Trevor: Mm-hmm. It's no surprise -- Richard is not compassionate.
Sam: No, and I -- I didn't really mean to be stirring up any family problems. I just -- I really hope that your presence here in Port Charles will influence him to do what's right for Molly.
Trevor: Well, I'll try. Are you -- are you sure that we've never met? I swear I've seen you somewhere before.
Sam: No -- you know what? Maybe. I -- I host this reality series. It's called "Everyday Heroes" -- I don't know -- maybe you saw --
Trevor: I don't have time to watch television that much, but -- wait a minute. I know where it is. The Jason Morgan murder trial. Yeah.
Trevor: He was on trial for murder, and you testified against him.
Sam: Yeah, I did, but Jason was acquitted.
Trevor: I heard about that. That was a fascinating trial -- a known hit man evades the law. Tell me, do you think that he's as lethal as they paint him out to be?
Spinelli: Help me, Stone Cold -- are we looking for something specific between Zacchara and Lansing?
Jason: Yes, whatever tells us how Zacchara runs his outfit would help me.
Spinelli: Okay, well, the Jackal can report this for sure -- Sith lord Zacchara must pay his own tech people ample salary, because his systems are difficult to locate and even harder to penetrate.
Jason: Are you -- are you asking me for a raise right now? Right now?
Spinelli: Relax, Stone Cold, I -- I mean, not that I would turn down an augmentation of my weekly stipend, but -- no, regardless of monetary compensation, the Jackal will rise to the challenge, okay? No system can defy the assassin of cyberspace.
Jason: Okay, stop.
Spinelli: I'm sorry?
Jason: Stop -- just stop.
Spinelli: What, did you think -- of another way in?
Jason: I just want to tell you that this could get really serious, and that puts you directly in the line of fire.
Alfred: I have papers here for you to sign regarding that matter you've been working on.
Nikolas: Thank you.
Alfred: I have a better understanding of the parameters, Sir. I had no intention of undermining your plans. It was simply bad judgment.
Nikolas: Yes, well, I did consider sending you away to take care of that apartment in London, but we're knee-deep in this project right now and, quite frankly, I can't trust anyone else.
Alfred: I'm relieved, Sir. I do worry that you've put too much pressure on yourself. Perhaps you should take that month in Italy, even if Miss Emily can't accompany you.
Nikolas: Alfred, I don't need advice, I need results. And the timing is crucial on this project, and I could really use your support.
Emily: The timing on what project?
Carly: My first impulse is to jump on a plane and go straight to Australia.
Jax: Well, Lady Jane would be thrilled.
Carly: Or New Zealand. We could go to New Zealand -- have you been there?
Carly: It would be great for the boys -- think of the education they would get.
Jax: Hey, you won't hear me complaining. I mean, I love the idea of having the family all together, all to myself. It would give us a semblance of a normal life.
Carly: Except for the private jet and the gazillon dollars.
Jax: Well --
Carly: Oh, I don't know. Somehow running off just seems like it would isolate us even more. And we'd have to take the boys away from their father --
Jax: Well, Sonny is in no position to object if we decide to protect the family somewhere other than Port Charles.
Carly: Okay, you know, I don't want us to stand here and bash Sonny about something that he can't control right now and neither can we. We have to do what's best for our family and for the boys, and we have to make that decision together, and I need you to help me make the right choice.
Ric: You know Daddy loves you, don't you, sweetheart? And I will do anything in the world to make sure that you are loved and cared for and safe. I mean it, I'll do anything. You're the most important part of my life. Right? Kiss? Kiss?
[Knock on door]
Alexis: Hey! Hey, moll! Hi, sweetheart. I missed you so much. Hi, angel pie.
Ric: I didn't know when your plane landed.
Alexis: Hi. Sally? Will you do me a favor and take Molly in the other room just for one quick second so I can have a chat with her dad? I'll be right with you, sweetie, okay?
Ric: Here you go. Go -- go to sally.
Alexis: I'll be right there.
Ric: I love you. You know, I really appreciate you ordering my staff around. Thanks.
Alexis: I'll do whatever I feel is necessary for the well-being of my child. And when my ex-husband neglects to mention that his father is in town -- his father who happens to be the personal, private counsel to the mob --
Ric: It's not proven, okay?
Alexis: I'm sorry -- alleged personal, private counsel -- to a mob boss who is out to get Sonny, I think I'm positively even-tempered, considering that you never bothered to warn me.
Ric: Just check your messages.
Alexis: Are you insane? I mean, why expose her --
Ric: Check your messages, Alexis.
Alexis: I'll check my messages in a minute! I understand that you could be thrown off your game because your father's in town, but nothing -- nothing should take precedence over the safety of our daughter. Not your vendetta with Sonny, not your neurosis --
Ric: Check your messages!
Alexis: All right! I'll check my damn messages! I'm trying to make a point here. But I don't know if you heard one word that I've said. Ahem.
Ric's voice: Alexis, it's Ric. I think it's time that Molly came to live with her mother.
[Knock on door]
Trevor: Is this Jason Morganís residence?
Spinelli: Be gone, minion of darkness, before the wrath of Stone Cold falls down upon you and your uber-evil employee!
Jason: Hey, hey, go upstairs.
Spinelli: No, no, no, with all due respect, this man can bring no good!
Trevor: That poor kid seems mentally ill. He a relative of yours?
Jason: What do you want?
Trevor: I represent a third party who's interested in doing business with you.
[Knock on door]
Sam: I'm sorry. Uh -- my timing obviously stinks.
Lucky: No, no, it's all right. Why don't you come in?
Sam: Okay, I -- I hate to bother you at home, but I called your work and they said that you were off today, and it was really important. So you know this Anthony Zacchara is -- is after Sonny and Jason, obviously, but he is a lot worse that I actually realized. He likes to kill people, and not just his enemies. He goes after kids and -- and families and girlfriends.
Lucky: Okay, which is why you need protection, Sam.
Sam: But not you, Lucky.
Lucky: What, you don't think I can protect you?
Sam: No, I know you can. But I just -- I can't let you take that risk. You have your own family to worry about, and those are the people that you need to protect. And if you're somehow connected to Jason through me and something happens to you or your kids, I will never be able to forgive myself. I'm sorry.
Lucky: Sam -- you need to be safe, too.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Emily: Tell me what's going on.
Sonny: Zacchara is about to make a move on my territory.
Trevor: You got a lot to lose.
Jerry: You and your family will need protection.
Carly: Oh, God, Jason --
Jason: Get in the house right now.
Trevor: We've taken the first step -- it was handled exactly as you instructed.
