Robin: You're giving yourself way too much credit. Patrick and I broke up for many reasons, and none of which have to do with you.
Leyla: I never said they were.
Robin: Patrick and I want different things out of life, we have different goals. So if you want to go after him -- correction -- if you want to blatantly chase after him, knock yourself out. But don't throw it in my face.
Leyla: You aren't angry with me, Dr. Scorpio. You regret breaking up with Patrick, and you want him back.
Epiphany: May I help you?
Woman: I'm Nadine Crowell. My sister, Jolene, is in the ICU?
Spinelli: Whoa! Uh -- the falsely fair one has a sinister sister?
Nikolas: I'm -- I'm sorry. Is there -- is there a problem here?
Spinelli: Most certainly. If the seemingly sweet one is actually related to the angel of death, Jolene, she -- she may be as equally lethal.
Nadine: I just want to visit my sister.
Epiphany: Your sister sabotaged this hospital, and deliberately caused patients' deaths. So don't expect a warm welcome from the staff.
Nikolas: Wait -- apologize to her.
Alexis: I don't think that I need to remind everyone here that a long-standing relationship is being dissolved, and both parties have a lot to lose.
Diane: And your point would be?
Alexis: My point is that one of these parties has to back down before there's a -- a grudge match where innocent people get hurt.
Diane: And that should be your client -- although, his innocence is in question -- make that nonexistent.
Alexis: Elizabeth, it can be proven that you married Lucky under false pretenses. You need to be the one to back down.
Carly: This is my house, Trevor is my guest and if you have a problem with it, I'm sorry, but it's not your call.
Sonny: So what's your plan? You're going to pour him a drink, he's going to tell you everything?
Carly: You're interrupting, okay? It's time for you to go.
Sonny: You may think that you're working him, but in actuality, he's working you.
Leyla: I enjoy Patrick's company. I don't apologize for that.
Robin: So I've noticed.
Leyla: Okay, look, Patrick's been friendly to me. He helped me deal with a very demanding program, and we enjoy working together. On a more personal basis, we have some common interests. At this point, it's nothing more than that.
Robin: Please! You have been flirting with him since you met him -- you practically follow him around the hospital.
Leyla: And the same could be said about you.
Robin: Patrick has a history of taking whatever is offered to him if she's pretty and she's available. So do yourself a favor and don't make the mistake of thinking that there's any kind of connection between the two of you.
Leyla: Okay, look, if you're having doubts about your breakup with Patrick, tell him. All I've done is accept a perfectly nice, perfectly ordinary, dinner invitation.
Dr. Julian: Okay, okay, all right, hold on -- just hold on.
Dr. Julian: Look --
Dr. Julian: Don't take this personally, all right? Look, I am very attracted to you --
Dr. Julian: Extremely tempted.
Dr. Julian: Very flattered, but aren't you supposed to be in recovery right now?
Kelly: You know, sexual addiction isn't like alcoholism or smoking -- you can't just quit. Humans are sexual beings, it's natural.
Dr. Julian: Yeah, I -- I agree.
Dr. Julian: But I don't want to mess you up if you're going through any changes right now.
Kelly: No, no, the recovery program I'm in allows me to feel attraction, and I am very attracted to you.
Dr. Julian: Yeah.
Kelly: I mean, we're consenting adults; no one's going to get hurt. Don't you need to build up on your stamina?
Kate: Oh -- excuse me.
Kelly: Oh --
Dr. Julian: Ahem.
Kate: Yeah, this is kind of awkward.
Dr. Julian: Yeah.
Kate: Forget I was here.
Dr. Julian: Okay.
Nikolas: This very pleasant woman would just like to visit her sister, and I don't like the way that you're treating her.
Spinelli: Okay, don't judge a game by its light fort.
Nikolas: Whatever. Nurse Johnson, as a staff member here at this hospital, I expect you to have more compassion for anyone who would want to visit a relative in ICU.
Epiphany: I have nothing but compassion for you, if Jolene Crowell really is your sister. She sabotaged this hospital to pave the way for Medcam's takeover. My patients suffered, and some died -- on my watch.
Nadine: The police explained about the charges against Jolene. I still can't believe she did any of those things.
Spinelli: Okay, the falsely -- the falsely fair one claimed to be distraught over her father's untimely death in a hospital environment.
Nadine: Our father died during a routine procedure -- it was tough on the whole family. But Jolene would never hurt, much less kill, anyone.
Spinelli: The seemingly sweet one appears to be most thoughtful and kind, but so did her sinister sibling.
Nikolas: Well, the increasingly angry major benefactor thinks that the Jackal is being rude and out of line.
Elizabeth: Lucky and I have both made mistakes -- that's why we're ending this marriage. However, I do not have any intention of allowing Lucky to dictate this divorce.
Diane: You've heard my client's response. All future communication will be done through the court or at scheduled mediation. Excuse us. Brace yourself -- Alexis Davis is a barracuda and she has definitely turned this divorce into a brawl. Oy.
Elizabeth: Realistically, what are the chances of getting the settlement I want? I mean, I'm not even asking for alimony.
Diane: Right, and you need to rethink that. You've got to ask for more than what you want -- that's how you leave room to negotiate. That goes for child support, too.
Elizabeth: No, I --
Diane: At least -- at least for Jake.
Elizabeth: I don't want Lucky's money; I just want to make sure my children stay with me.
Diane: Don't worry. One way or another, you will definitely get full custody of your children.
Alexis: We need to prioritize, so you're going to have to tell me what matters most.
Lucky: Well, full access to Cameron and Jake.
Alexis: Okay, that could be problematic due to your abuse. Have you been going to meetings?
Lucky: I have been clean and sober for over a year.
Alexis: Good, good, Lucky. All right, Dianeís going to cite your infidelity, but we'll neutralize that by referencing Elizabethís involvement with Jason. Now, in court, you have to come from a position of strength. You can't just react to what the other person is throwing off. So Jake is your biological son -- this is your ace in the hole because that gives you lots of rights under the law.
Lucky: Okay, so what's next?
Alexis: Diane is going to try to mediate this for as long as possible, which is more costly than either you or Elizabeth can afford. So you need to give Elizabeth some sort of incentive to settle and settle quickly.
Lucky: How do I do that?
Alexis: By asking for more than you're willing to settle for, to leave room to negotiate. You're going to have to file for primary custody of Jake.
Trevor: Sonny, listen to me. I am no threat to Carly.
Sonny: You ripped Kateís life apart to get to me, Trevor.
Trevor: But Carly is not interested in my quarrel with a woman she barely knows.
Carly: I have more important things to worry about than Kate Howard, okay? Can you please leave?
Sonny: Why don't you tell him what you're trying to do?
Carly: I'm trying to have a conversation over a halfway decent martini. Are you happy? Go.
Sonny: Carly wants to know whether or not Johnny Zacchara murdered our nanny, Leticia.
Diane: Of course, there is one simple and obvious way to make certain that Lucky does not get custody of Jake, and that is to tell the court -- and Lucky -- that he is not Jakeís biological father.
Elizabeth: I've already sworn under oath that he is.
Diane: I can prove emotional duress. Or, we can have the court order a paternity test, and you can be completely surprised at the results.
Elizabeth: No. No, it's too dangerous for Jake. I don't want anyone else to know that Jason is his father.
Lucky: Jake -- he's my son. Cameron -- he might as well be. Now, I love them both and Elizabeth knows that. She can't regulate when I see them.
Alexis: Just to be clear, Cameron could be a problem because you never legally adopted him.
Lucky: But Cameron thinks of me as his father, he calls me "Daddy." I -- I just can't disappear from his life.
Alexis: If you get custody of Jake, she may be more generous with Cameron.
Lucky: Well, don't count on it.
Alexis: She's not going to want the two of them separated, trust me on that. All right, now, is Elizabeth still seeing Jason?
Lucky: She swears she's not. But --
Alexis: If she is, we can argue primary custody on the fact that she puts Jake in danger every time she allows him contact with Jason.
Nikolas: I am well aware that Medcam paid Jolene Crowell to sabotage patient care in efforts to undermine this hospital. However, being someone who has more than just a few dubious relatives, I find it unacceptable to condemn Nadine here for something her sister allegedly may have done. And as for you, given your current employer, you're in no position to criticize or pass judgment on anything.
Spinelli: Okay, the slightly battered princely one may be correct in a strictly philosophical view, but had you been here and actually witnessed the -- the mayhem and loss caused by the falsely fair Jolene, you would not be so quick to defend her sister.
Nadine: I don't care what Jolene is supposed to have done, I just want to see her.
Epiphany: Family can visit the ICU at any time.
Spinelli: Given that one cannot auto-select one's relatives, the -- the Jackal would be willing to escort you to the room where your sinister sibling lies comatose.
Nadine: "The Jackal"?
Spinelli: Oh, yeah, I -- I am he.
Nadine: Your name is "Jackal"?
Spinelli: No, actually, "The -- The Jackal." See, I'm the assassin of the internet, I own cyberspace.
Epiphany: Do you need to see a doctor, Mr. Cassadine?
Emily: Lainey didn't tell me you got hurt.
Kate: Um, I -- I just wanted to apologize again for interrupting.
Kelly: Oh -- no, I'm done. Just -- don't mention it to anyone, okay?
Kate: Oh, no, of course not. I'm extremely discreet.
Andy: Why would you need to be?
Andy: Did you have a slip?
Kelly: Were you eavesdropping?
Andy: I'll take that as a yes.
Kelly: Okay, I kissed Leo.
Andy: You know, we have a deal -- you're supposed to stay clean.
Kelly: It was one kiss, and it has nothing to do with me being a sex addict.
Andy: Of course it does.
Kelly: No! Leo nearly died, and I was glad to see him. Oh -- and, okay, he's a sexy man!
Andy: Oh, God -- you know what? Look, if you're having trouble controlling your addiction, you need to get to a meeting.
Kelly: No, no, you are not in charge of my meetings or my sex life, okay, so just back off.
Kate: Ahem. Excuse me.
Andy: I'm just saying that if you're already starting to backslide, then you need help.
Kate: Excuse me!
Andy and Kelly: What?
Kate: You might want to have this conversation somewhere else privately. Not that I haven't heard worse at numerous cocktail parties, but usually the protagonists were drunk and didn't remember what they said the next morning, and you two most certainly will regret having said any of this in front of me.
Sonny: You see, Carly suspects that you're protecting Johnny Zacchara, and I don't blame her because everybody knows that you work for his father. But the kid's nuts. Somebody should really look out for him, because, you know, Carlyís not the only one who thinks that he strangled my nanny, Leticia.
Trevor: Sonny, how many times do I got to tell you? Johnny was nowhere near Port Charles the night that your nanny was murdered.
Sonny: Oh, I know, I know -- you'll do anything Anthony Zacchara says, you'll protect his son. Whatever he wants, you'll do, right?
Trevor: Come on, Sonny, smarten up! Why don't you investigate your own list of personal enemies before you try to pin a murder on a young guy that you don't even know? Carly, look, it's always nice to see you -- even under these circumstances -- and I do hope we'll have a chance to have that martini in the future.
Carly: Were you thinking? That was my one chance to question Trevor and you blew it.
Sonny: You shouldn't be talking to the guy, much less inviting him to your house, getting him drunk, asking about a murder.
Carly: I will ask Trevor anything I want, okay, anything I want if it helps me figure out who killed Leticia.
Sonny: You're not figuring out a damn thing!
Elizabeth: Lucky loves Cameron and Jake and they love him. They need him, and I want him to be a part of their lives, but I also want primary custody.
Diane: You will probably get it. You are a responsible person with a stable job and a strong support system. Lucky is a recovering drug addict in a high-risk profession.
Elizabeth: You know, he's worked really hard to stay clean. I'd rather not use his drug addiction against him.
Diane: I know -- that's why you have a lawyer, who will do the unpleasant things necessary to win.
Alexis: Elizabeth has repeatedly allowed a man with a history of violence and who's been shot at several times to hold Jake -- in public, correct?
Lucky: Yeah -- at the coffeehouse, the park, the hospital.
Alexis: Are there any witnesses?
Lucky: I'll start putting some names together.
Alexis: Before we go any further, I want you to consider the implications. If you play the daddy card, and if we argue that Elizabeth is putting your son in danger, you are essentially saying to the court that Elizabeth is a bad mother. Let me tell you something from personal experience. When you accuse a good woman of being an unfit mother, you are in volatile, deeply emotional territory. Are you listening to me? I can still remember every negative thing that Ric ever said about me in court, and I can't forgive him. No matter how many times I try, and even though I know that it'll be better for molly if I do, I canít. So hear me when I tell you that Elizabeth is going to be furious. She is going to be deeply hurt, and any feelings that you have between the two of you or that you've had between the two of you, any good feelings might very well be destroyed. So if you want to go down this road, Lucky, you better make damn well sure this is the road you want to go down.
Emily: I heard about what happened at the police station. You were very brave. Not to criticize a hero or anything, but maybe next time you could leave the restraining of the prisoner to the cops.
Nikolas: What -- what am I supposed to have done?
Emily: What, you don't remember?
Nikolas: No. I spoke with Lucky at the PCPD, paid the fine for the misdemeanor charge that Scott filed. Next thing I know, I'm walking down the street with blood on my hands.
Nadine: Why are you following me?
Spinelli: I just -- just in case the seemingly sweet one has questions about her sinister sibling's nefarious activities.
Nadine: I still can't believe things, especially after what happened to our father.
Spinelli: Is that true? Did he really die in surgery?
Nadine: He never woke up from the anesthesia. Jolene and I were devastated. I -- it's when we made the promise to help other people -- so that no one would have to go through what we did. That's why we became nurses.
Spinelli: Well, perhaps the seemingly sweet one used her training to help people. But the falsely fair Jolene used her hard-won position as student nurse to kill.
Kate: Oh, now, that's just tragic.
Epiphany: What, is -- is there something wrong? Did we do something --
Kate: No, that woman -- look. Why would anyone wear that?
Epiphany: Not everybody wants to look like a painted-up, starving, 14-year-old model in a fashion magazine. And if you ask me, those girls are the real tragedy -- along with everything else I've seen in "Couture."
Kate: Well, you don't have to take every page literally. Fashion should be wearable art.
Epiphany: Now, why would I wear art to General Hospital? And if I did, I wouldn't buy it out of "Couture." All the clothes in your magazine cost ridiculous amounts of money and have absolutely nothing to do with real women.
Kate: "Couture" is cutting-edge. It's one of the most influential magazines in the business.
Epiphany: I don't care about the business, I care about my life. And when I open up a magazine, I want to see something that I can use, huh? A pretty dress. A hairstyle for me and not some skinny blonde. Maybe even a piece of furniture that I can actually afford to buy. I want a magazine to help me put a little style in my life. Now, get back to work.
Jax: Hey. I got your message. I understand you want to discuss a business proposal.
Kate: You and I may be in a position to help one another.
Sonny: Do you have any idea how dangerous Trevor Lansing is?
Carly: Yes, I do.
Sonny: Okay, so why don't you leave him alone?
Carly: Because I'm the only one n get to him, Sonny.
Sonny: And who are you, Nancy Drew now, trying to solve the mystery of the twisted stairs?
Carly: Are you reading Nancy Drew?
Sonny: I don't read Nancy Drew.
Carly: Then why did you bring it up?
Sonny: Because every time that I get shot and I'm in the hospital, you insist on taking care of me. I'm trying to go to sleep, you read out loud about, you know, some rich girl driving a roadster, solving some stupid mystery -- I don't know.
Carly: It was a convertible.
Sonny: Okay, we're not changing the subject, because that's what you do --
Carly: I'm not trying to change the subject -- you just need to admit that you like Nancy Drew.
Sonny: I don't want you involved!
Carly: I left Leticia here that night, okay? I didn't think -- and I found her dead on the floor, and I am going to find who's responsible.
Sonny: It's too dangerous.
Carly: The killer is text-messaging you, right? Johnny Zacchara is text-messaging Lulu.
Sonny: It doesn't mean he's the killer.
Carly: I know, I know. I feel the same way. When I met him, it didn't feel right.
Sonny: What? When did you meet Johnny Zacchara?
Carly: I ran into him.
Carly: At the park.
Sonny: Did he threaten you?
Carly: No, he didn't threaten me.
Sonny: You're lying to me. What did he do?
Carly: Nothing. He didn't do anything.
Sonny: Why didn't you call me?
Carly: Okay, okay, you know, I want you to stop for a second. I want you to consider something, okay, consider this. What if Johnny is just the decoy? Maybe that's why Trevor is spending so much time on him. What if this is all just a diversion so we don't find the real killer?
Sonny: I don't want you anywhere near this. It's not a game; it's not a novel mystery. Leticia was found dead right here on the floor. I don't want that happening to you.
Emily: A prisoner got loose the squad room. He was out of control; he was on drugs.
Nikolas: Lainey told you this?
Emily: Yeah, she was there visiting someone. She said that he went after the gun, and then you attacked him and you threw him down on the floor.
Nikolas: Well, I'm a hero, then. It can't be that bad.
Emily: Yeah, Lainey was concerned about the level of violence on your part.
Nikolas: Well, is a little unsettling that I don't remember, but at least I did something good this time.
Emily: I'm going to page Robin and Patrick and order a full neurological workup, Nikolas.
Nikolas: No, no, no -- no, I've already had all the blood work done, along with a battery of all kinds of other tests, they didn't find anything. So whatever's wrong --
Emily: You have gaps in your memory; you have fights that you don't remember. Your violence is escalating --
Nikolas: It's my problem and I'll deal with it. So why don't you support me for once, instead of trying to control every damn thing in my life?
Kelly: Andy -- Andy? Hey? I'm sorry I snapped at you before. You were right, I -- I definitely had a slip.
Andy: You don't have to confess to me, I'm not the sex police.
Kelly: But we have a deal going. You know, 68 more days and we get to celebrate.
Andy: I don't -- I don't know. You know, I'm new with this whole addiction/recovery thing. If you slipped, go to a meeting, leave me out of it.
Kelly: Why did I expect any understanding from you? You're not even an addict, right? You've got it all under control.
Jax: Okay. What do you think we can do for each other?
Kate: Picture this -- new magazine. Classy, cutting-edge, but for real women.
Jax: I'm listening.
Kate: Picture a magazine for women who work every day. They may have a career. It may just be a job, they may choose to work from home -- it doesn't matter because their lives are busy, complicated. They donít have time for haute couture, but they still -- they still want to have some style.
Jax: I know a lot of women who would fit that profile.
Kate: Do you think that they would buy a first-class magazine? I'm talking high-end photographers, A-list writers, gorgeous layouts, and, of course, tons of beautiful ads. But it would focus on the clothes and the hair and the accessories and maybe even some furniture, but it would all be something that a working woman could afford.
Jax: Mm-hmm. Sounds like a great idea.
Kate: It's an expensive idea, and it would require significant startup funds.
Jax: Of course, it will.
Kate: Which would mean I would need a backer with very deep pockets. In other words, you.
Diane: Just find me an expert on the tendency of drug addicts to relapse -- during the early years of recovery. As soon as possible. Thank you.
Trevor: You think I should take cover? You going to lob another heel?
Diane: I allowed myself to get a little carried away, didn't
Trevor: No --
Diane: Which is not to say that I was wrong.
Trevor: You got a mean right arm -- Yankees should've pitched you against the Red Sox.
Diane: Mm-hmm. What I have, Mr. Lansing, is an appreciation for fashion. No one understands American fashion and style better than Kate Howard. You did a terrible disservice to the public when you got her fired from "couture."
Trevor: No, I was just helping to enforce a morals clause.
Diane: Oh, my -- really? Well, that sounds like -- like undo influence -- or maybe it's just good old-fashioned coercion. I wonder what the American Bar Association would have to say about it.
Trevor: I tell you, if I were you, I would concentrate on my high-dollar client, forget about me.
Diane: What makes you think I'm the tiniest bit interested in your advice?
Trevor: Because I just left Sonny at his ex-wife's house. He was really upset -- almost incoherent.
Diane: I'm his lawyer, not his shrink.
Trevor: Fine. But he's going to get himself into a lot of problems if cooler heads don't prevail. My advice -- take it or leave it.
Sonny: Why do you think I wanted you to stay on the island? Because I knew you would try to, you know, get involved, and -- and I was right. You're running around, baiting a killer, risking your life when our kids just lost Leticia.
Carly: That's why I'm doing this -- I owe her.
Sonny: You're putting yourself in the middle of a mob war -- having drinks with Trevor Lansing, meeting with Johnny Zacchara, a kid who -- who's psychotic, whether he killed Leticia or not.
Carly: Okay, it's not just about Leticia. I'm trying to protect my children, and I want to protect Lulu.
Sonny: Do you trust me at all?
Carly: Of course I trust you.
Sonny: Do you understand that we're following the same leads, tripping all over each other? Let me take care of this.
Carly: I canít.
Carly: Because you're too close to the situation. Trevor pushes all your buttons, and it's too painful for you.
Sonny: It doesn't help that I come in here and you're pouring him martinis.
Carly: Then you need to keep your distance.
Sonny: The man is dangerous.
Carly: I agree with you, I know he's dangerous! But let me protect you for once. I know what Trevorís cost you.
Sonny: I'm doing okay. But every time you get involved, then I worry, and it makes things worse.
Carly: Okay, I know that the pain is real for you. I can see it, Sonny; I can feel it when you and Trevor are in the same room. That pain affects the choices you make, and I know how you think, so let me think for you for a little while.
Sonny: I need you to stay out of this. Because nothing, no amount of pain, nothing that -- that Trevor Lansing can dredge up will stop me from protecting my family, and that includes you.
Leyla: Mrs. Levin's updated vitals.
Epiphany: Okay, thank you.
Leyla: So my shift's over. If you don't need anything, I'll be going.
Epiphany: Sounds like you're in a hurry.
Leyla: I have to get ready for my date.
Epiphany: Please tell me it is not Patrick Drake.
Leyla: Let's just say I have to meet somebody at the Metro Court, who shall remain nameless.
Emily: Hey. I didn't expect you back so soon.
Elizabeth: Behar wants me to assist in surgery; I need to review the chart -- which I think you have. This is Mr. Adams?
Elizabeth: Thanks. You okay?
Emily: Yeah, I just worry too much, that's all.
Emily: Mm-hmm. Just more of the same, really. He's been volatile and moody. I'm sure we're going to get through it. How was your meeting with Diane?
Elizabeth: Well, you were right -- about bringing lawyers into the divorce. I'm afraid things are going to get ugly.
Spinelli: The falsely fair Jolene planted a canister of laughing gas in an ambulance, then punctured it -- the canister, not the emergency vehicle. But it caused a terrible explosion and a patient got seriously injured.
Nadine: That's awful.
Spinelli: And then she -- she hastened the death of a sweet and elderly woman, who all she wanted to do was create needlepoint images of clowns -- which are terrifying to some, but reassuring to others. And then your sinister sibling sabotaged an elevator, trapping a woman that was in labor.
Nadine: That was in the police report. It must've been terrible.
Spinelli: It -- it was. Um -- but the baby, the charmed one, lives on.
Nadine: And you are absolutely positive that my sister was behind all of this?
Spinelli: Yeah. The falsely fair Jolene once told me that if you wear scrubs, you can go anywhere in the hospital undetected, and I -- the Jackal had no idea that she was referring to herself. She was a loyal and well-paid minion of the corporate giant Medcam, who are trying to take over General Hospital and turn it into a -- a profit-driven medical mill.
Nadine: Jolene may have been misguided, but signing on as a hired assassin for a corporation? I don't believe that.
Spinelli: But it's the truth. And since you're not doing anything to hide her sisterly ties, don't be surprised if people treat you with suspicion.
Nadine: I understand why you don't like me, Mr. Jackal.
Spinelli: That's what your sinister sibling called me -- Mr. Jackal.
Nadine: I -- I don't mean to be rude, but I have a lot to think about.
Spinelli: Oh. Yeah -- no, of course. The Jackal is patient. He can wait. Huh.
Nadine: Would you please leave me alone?
Elizabeth: Locker room is for hospital staff only.
Lucky: I told Epiphany it was an emergency.
Elizabeth: Is it?
Lucky: About what happened earlier, I just want to stop this fight before it gets out of control.
Elizabeth: Yeah? Well, so do I.
Lucky: Then fire Diane. Let Alexis draft up our custody agreement.
Lucky: Elizabeth, if you don't, then I'm going to have to file for sole custody of my son.
Carly: I want you to keep watching him, okay? Yeah, get back to me as soon as you have that information. Great.
Jax: Everything all right?
Carly: Yeah, I'm just making sure all the windows are in right before the winter hits in Montrťal.
Jax: You are doing a great job with the renovations.
Carly: Thank you.
Jax: And I would appreciate your input on another project, too.
Jax: Kate Howard approached me about a new fashion magazine that focuses on women who work for a living.
Carly: That was my idea. I pitched that to her boss on Father's Day.
Jax: Well -- well, she wants me to back it.
Carly: Well, forget it. My husband is not going into business with Sonny's new girlfriend.
Sonny: I'm glad you got my message.
Kate: Well, I had to take some time to put on some real clothes.
Sonny: So, how was the hospital?
Kate: Ah, it wasn't terrible, but this is heaven.
Sonny: You like that?
Kate: I do.
Sonny: You know, I got this urge, you know, that -- I don't know -- to take care of you. And you're probably exhausted, so --
Kate: Actually, I'm inspired.
Sonny: Don't tell me you like community service.
Kate: Uh -- I'm -- I'm having some new ideas for a new magazine.
Kate: It's funny, because Trevor and Warren were so anxious to get rid of me, they forgot to put a non-compete clause in my exit papers. And so I double-checked my original contract -- I can do anything I want.
Sonny: So what's the magazine about?
Kate: Well, I actually have two or three ideas I'm playing with, but I'm thinking about shifting focus and building on something for real women. Clothes that are more accessible for women on a budget but who also appreciate style on their own terms.
Sonny: Kind of like you would've been if you were still back in the old neighborhood?
Kate: Yeah. Possibly. But I think I might already have an investor.
Sonny: And who would that be?
Kate: Jasper Jacks.
Sonny: Jax? Why not ask me? Are
Sonny: I'm just saying, you know, you lost "Couture" because of me, and I'd be -- well, honored to help you start a magazine.
Kate: Sonny, I appreciate your generosity. But we are involved, and I think I just learned a very valuable lesson about mixing business and emotion.
Sonny: Is that the only reason you're not taking my money?
Kate: I am sure that your money is well-laundered, and you seem to have plenty of it. But I would imagine that every dollar of it has been earned by some criminal activity, and I can't, Sonny, I can't have anything to do with anything illegal. I'm sorry if that offends you. Do you want me to go? Maybe I should just go.
Sonny: No, no, no. You think I made this dinner and now I'm going to let you just get out of here that quick?
Kate: You kind of went to a lot of trouble.
Sonny: Yeah, I did. So can we just forget about business for one night, and just, you know, do whatever it is we want to do?
Kate: Um -- business? What business?
Carly: I think it's unfair that Kate got axed from "Couture," okay? But that's what she gets for hanging out with Trevor Lansing.
Jax: She's just trying to turn a bad situation into something positive.
Carly: Fine -- let her do it with someone else's husband.
Jax: Okay, she really knows what she's doing, and I think it's a good investment.
Carly: What if I asked you not to?
Jax: What if I asked you to trust me on this?
Carly: I'd say you're wasting your time, because I wonít. I'm jealous, I'm possessive, I know Kate stole my idea, and I think she's after my husband.
Jax: Okay, we can negotiate the intellectual property, and I am extremely married.
Carly: What if Kate won't respect our wedding vows?
Jax: You're -- you're infuriating, but I love you. I really love you, and I promise you that you are the only woman for me. Hmm?
Carly: Youíre trying to distract me with sex.
Jax: And is it working?
Carly: Hmm -- you need to try a little harder.
Robin: Has Patrick Drake arrived?
Maitre d': Dr. Drake's expecting you; he's out on the terrace.
Elizabeth: This is exactly why we should have our own attorneys -- let them fight so we don't have to.
Lucky: We agreed to make this as easy as possible for the boys. Then you went out and hired Jasonís lawyer, and now Diane is trying to keep my time with Jake down to weekends.
Elizabeth: We agreed the boys would live with me. But you can see them whenever you want -- nights, weekends, whenever. A piece of paper isn't going to change that. But making threats might.
Lucky: Well, I have concern for Jakeís safety.
Elizabeth: How can you say that to me? I'm a good mother and you know it.
Lucky: Well, good mothers don't let mobsters hang out with their kids.
Elizabeth: Jason hasn't been around Jake for weeks.
Lucky: Your friendship with Jason is a constant danger to my son, and you know Alexis will have no problem proving it.
Elizabeth: Oh, I don't want this to get ugly. But I will not stand back and let Alexis bully me on your behalf. And if you or your lawyer even think about implying that I've endangered my son in any way, I'll have Diane drag up your addiction to painkillers so fast, you won't even know what hit you.
EMT: We got a male, found stabbed down off of Third Street. BP's 85/45 and falling.
Nurse: The attending won't answer his page.
Leo: Okay, I'll take it. Get me some nurses.
Nurse: Everyone's already assigned.
Nadine: I'm an R.N.
Leo: All right. Well, let's go, then. Trauma one.
Emily: Hey, I got a call. You need help?
Leo: Yeah, this guy's been stabbed, massive blood loss. His BP's dropping. Can I see your stethoscope?
Leo: Thank you.
Emily: Oh, my God.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Patrick: What are you doing here?
Emily: Blood pressure's starting to drop again.
Leo: This guy might not make it through surgery.
Man: I'm Detective Harper. I have a few questions for you.
