Robin's voice: Love is messy, complicated. And just when you're sure it's over, love saves your life.
Anthony: Now, don't be shy, Maria. Just tell me who to kill -- Cinderella or the prince.
Leyla: No one has to die, Anthony.
Anthony: Yes, they do, I said so. Stop!
Leyla: Let's just go home. It's unseemly to fight in front of strangers.
Anthony: Don't try to manipulate me. If you won't choose, I'll kill both of them.
Leyla: I mean it, Anthony. Put the gun down immediately.
Sam: Lucky, I am so sorry. I wish I would've told you sooner.
Lucky: But you didn’t. What, so you could hold on to Jason?
Sam: Yeah. I know, it's pathetic, huh? But that's how I was when it came to Jason. Even after we broke up, I still felt obligated to keep his secrets -- that's why I testified the way I did in court. It's --
Lucky: Sam, Jake -- Jake is -- Jake was my son. And Jason has put that little boy in the center of a huge lie, and that's fine with you?
Sam: No, I -- I don't know how to --
Nikolas: What happened here? Lucky, did you find Elizabeth?
Lucky: You know what? Stop wasting your time worrying about Elizabeth, because she's exactly where she wants to be.
Elizabeth: You had eve right to tell Lucky the truth about Jake.
Jason: You don't have to agree with what I did.
Elizabeth: I'm just afraid that Lucky feels like he has nothing left to lose. That's why I didn't tell him that Sam watched Jake get kidnapped -- it was just one ugly truth too many.
Jason: You're taking too much on yourself.
Elizabeth: But I did this. I lied to you, I lied to Lucky, I lied to our son. I poisoned your lives.
Jason: I chose to lie. And tonight I chose to tell the truth.
Elizabeth: Sometimes -- sometimes I think I've loved you from the very first time you saved me in that bar.
Jason: I remember you that night. How sad you we, how angry -- wow, how beautiful. But I had no idea that someday I'd be in love with you, or that you'd be the mother of my child.
Carly: What have you done with my husband?
Carly: Why are you lying to me?
Jerry: Do you think I'd lie about this? Jax is gone.
Carly: I think you would do and say whatever it took to get what you wanted.
Jerry: I was there. The boat capsized, and Jax never surfaced.
Carly: Jax is not dead! He is not dead, because if he were, I would feel it. He is out there somewhere and he's coming back for me.
Sonny: I'm not the most romantic guy when it comes to talking about feelings and -- I mean, I feel it in my heart, a lot. I just don't really know --
Kate: I think you do just fine.
Sonny: And it wouldn't -- you know, even if it were easy, I wouldn't have picked this place to tell you that I love you -- in a fight with my ex-wife.
Kate: I -- you better not take it back.
Sonny: I'm not taking it back. I'm just saying you -- you deserve better.
Kate: Can I -- can I say something now, have a turn? Huh? Can I?
Kate: Okay, I don't know if I'm rewriting history or if I'm looking back with rose-colored glasses, but I actually do have great memories of us when we were teenagers. You really were my best boyfriend, ever. And the negative was that I -- thinking all these years whether you hated me for leaving you flat -- it wasn't my proudest moment.
Sonny: Well, you were young, and I -- I don't really hold a grudge.
Kate: I'm grateful for our teenage romance because it's why we're together now.
Kate: It's why I gave it a chance, to see if it was real or if it was in my head. Sonny, when I'm with you, it's -- it's -- um -- familiar and right, and it's not just because you're sexy or you're kind.
Kate: I feel like I can say anything to you and not be judged, and in my world, that's a miracle. I'd given up on the possibility of love. I knew it wasn't in the cards for me. You changed that. So I'm very, very happy to hear that you love me, because I love you, too, very, very much.
Logan: Oh, he doesn't look that great.
Scott: Yeah, he does look a little peaked.
Logan: Lulu should be with him.
Luke: Hey, where's Lulu?
Logan: Mr. Spencer, she's -- she's fine. Coop's with her. He was the best soldier in our unit. He's taking care of her.
Scott: But you're okay, huh, Spencer? You're still breathing and everything, huh?
Luke: No thanks to the cheap cologne you marinate in.
Tracy: Oh, please don't engage. You need to save your strength.
Luke: I am, I'm okay. You're the one who's hurt. How's that back?
Tracy: Well, it's going to be a lot worse if I have to keep restraining you.
Luke: Well, don't, then. I'm okay, I'm -- don't baby me.
Tracy: You had a heart attack. Take a nap.
Luke: There's a lunatic in the house, don't ask me to take a nap.
Emily: Have you seen Nikolas?
Scott: I thought you went to go look for him.
Emily: No, he wasn't where I left him. Uh -- I'm going to keep looking.
Tracy: Hey, hey, hey! My husband needs you more than Nikolas does.
Emily: Okay. Here, let me see your wrist. All right, the -- the medication seems to be working. Okay, Luke, just lie as still as possible and we're going to get you off this island. All right?
Tracy: That's it? I just told him that.
Emily: I'm sorry, Tracy, I've got to find Nikolas.
Tracy: Well, I'm sure my brother would be thrilled to find out what a dedicated medical professional his daughter turned out to be.
Luke: Oh, lighten up, Spanky. Didn't you see her face? She's desperate.
Scott: Well, she should be concerned -- her boyfriend's a mental case.
Nikolas: Look, in case you missed it, there's a lunatic running around here spearing people with swords, along with assassins with guns, so if you could set aside your jealousy for Elizabeth for one second --
Sam: Look, before you get all judgmental and jump to conclusions, there's a lot more going on here tonight than you know.
Nikolas: Yeah, obviously there is. I was quite surprised to hear that Jason was on the island.
Sam: Of course he is. Why wouldn't he be? Elizabeth is here and he's always running after her. Or I don't know -- maybe he came to stop Anthony Zacchara. But I don't know. You -- I wouldn't be able to tell you because Jason's never really honest about his motives anymore, so --
Lucky: Sam, enough. Where's Emily?
Nikolas: I don't know.
Lucky: What do you mean, you don't know?
Nikolas: I -- I was in the wine closet with her, and the next thing I remember, I'm outside in the hallway alone.
Sam: Another blackout?
Lucky: Maybe you don't understand how dangerous it is to be walking around here.
Nikolas: Will you just get off my back, please?
Jason: I wouldn't let myself think of the day I could -- I could claim my son. But now that it's out in the open, it changes everything.
Elizabeth: Do you have any idea where we go from here?
Jason: It's got to be your decision
Elizabeth: Well, I promise as soon as I figure it out --
Jason: Then you'll let me know.
Elizabeth: Jason --
Spinelli: Stone Cold? It's nice to see you returned for a status update. Uh -- the Jackal obeyed his master's command. As you can see, the Blond One remains safe.
Lulu: Did you find Anthony? Okay, well, then the logical thing to do is send me back in the house so we can draw him out.
Spinelli: Look, I beseech you, abandon this impetuous plan. There is no reason to risk your awesome blondness when there are plenty of other people on the island that can slay the demented one.
Elizabeth: Spinelli's right. We have a veritable heroes club with Jason and Jax and Nikolas and Lucky. It's just a matter of time before someone stops Zacchara.
Spinelli: Yes, listen to the maternal one, okay? She is wise and levelheaded. We -- we should remain here in this sanctuary --
Lulu: Or what, you're going to clobber me again?
Spinelli: The Jackal regrets that he had to take drastic measures, but if incapacitating you by a strategic blow to the head is the only way to protect you, then that is what your best friend is obligated to do.
Lulu: I'm not going to sit around here and do nothing. The fastest way to get Anthony to come out by using me -- we can set up a trap.
Jason: Anthony is through fixating on you, he just kills whoever gets in his way. The only thing you can do is just stay out of it.
[Knock on door]
Jason: Who is it?
Johnny: John Zacchara.
Jerry: I know -- I know you're upset, but you need to calm down -- oh --
Carly: Jerry -- Jerry, what's wrong?
Jerry: I'm not sure.
Carly: What's going on?
Man: Don't even breathe.
Carly: It's okay, we're unarmed.
Man: On your feet, against the wall.
Carly: He's injured.
Man: Then I shoot him on his knees.
Carly: Can I help him up, please?
Leyla: You say you love me.
Anthony: You know I do.
Leyla: Well, then let these people go, they have nothing to do with us.
Anthony: Why are you so concerned with Cinderella and the prince? You betrayed me once; you're not going to get a second chance.
Leyla: No, you misunderstood --
Anthony: No, you should've learned with Johnny -- love kills. Now, choose, or they both die.
Leyla: Shoot him.
Anthony: Have you noticed? It's always the men that get screwed. As she says, so it will be.
Leyla: No -- agh!
Scott: Nikolas flips out without warning. He'll just beat up anybody that gets in his way.
Tracy: Isn't irrational behavior business as usual when it comes to the Cassadines?
Luke: Not for Nikolas. Who'd he attack?
Logan: Me, twice. Both times the guy could've really hurt me if somebody hadn't stepped in and helped me out.
Luke: Well, going off on you is understandable.
Nikolas: Has Emily been here?
Scott: Well, she went to look for you.
Lucky: Dad, are you okay?
Luke: Oh, I'm fine, fine.
Tracy: He -- he had a heart attack.
Lucky: What, out of nowhere?
Luke: Well, that's kind of how it happens, son.
Tracy: Well, with a little help from Anthony Zacchara.
Nikolas: Zacchara -- he was -- what happened?
Sam: You ran into him?
Lucky: What'd he do to you?
Tracy: You know what? Let me explain later, okay? Your father needs to rest.
Luke: You know, my wife here is in mama bear mode, so be careful -- it's not as sexy as other roles she plays.
Nikolas: Is there anything I can get for you?
Logan: Excuse me. I'm sorry, have you seen Lulu at all?
Sam: Lulu -- she's at the stables with Elizabeth and the others, yeah.
Logan: All right, I got to go get her; she'd want to be with her dad.
Scott: Look, you be careful out there.
Logan: All right.
Lucky: Dad, I'm going to go look for Robin or Patrick so they can try to take you --
Luke: No, I don't -- I don't need them. Just lose the fear, son. It'll take more than a few chest pains to take me down. After tonight is over, everything goes back to normal.
Lucky: I don't think so.
Lulu: How would you feel if you were me? Would you be able to pull up a bale of hay and get comfortable if you knew you could draw out a monster and end this nightmare?
Johnny: I've seen my father like this before. He probably doesn't even remember who you are, much less why he ever wanted to find you. You ready?
Jason: Yeah. All right, everybody, stay here.
Spinelli: Don't worry, we will take every precaution.
Jason: Give Elizabeth the gun back. Give it back.
Lulu: I cannot believe you're all okay with this. Being herded into a barn and relegated to the protected, when we could actually be out there helping. I just don't get it.
Nadine: No offense, but why do you find it necessary to make what's happening tonight about you?
Anthony: Why, Maria? Why would you betray me again?
Anthony: How many times do I have to kill you?
Anthony: Oh! Oh! Oh!
Robin: It's okay. Just lie still, okay? Just try and breathe.
Patrick: Leyla --
Robin: It's going to be okay.
Patrick: Let me see.
Patrick: All right, stay still, stay still. What were you doing jumping in front of the gun?
Leyla: Anthony was wrong -- there was a third choice.
Patrick: You're crazy, you know that? You're going to be fine, okay?
Nikolas: Did Emily say where she was going?
Scott: What is this -- you're checking the damage? Did you flip out on her, too?
Sam: No, Nikolas actually got separated from everyone in the dark, so he's afraid that Emily might go wandering off, that's all.
Nikolas: I'm going to go look for her.
Luke: You shouldn't let him go out there.
Lucky: Nikolas isn't easy to control lately.
Luke: Well, it's all the more reason he shouldn't be wandering around without backup.
Nadine: You've been told several times by Zacchara's own son -- who probably knows him better than anyone else -- that Anthony’s not after you anymore. So if you run around and raise a red flag, all you're going to be doing is putting yourself in danger and making those who care about you worried sick.
Lulu: Excuse me, but who the hell do you think you are?
Spinelli: With all due respect, Nurse Nadine, I think you misread fair Lulu's valorous vim and vigor. She would never trample on her loved ones' concerns the way you suggest.
Lulu: Look, you barely know me, but if you did, you'd understand that I don't think we should be sitting around here like you are, while they're out there taking all the risks.
Elizabeth: Okay, then let's try to figure out what we can do to help the situation.
[Knock on door]
Spinelli: It's okay, the über-demented one wouldn't knock.
Elizabeth: Make sure you know who it is.
Spinelli: Who seeks entrance?
Logan: Spinelli, open up, it's Logan. Open up.
Logan: Hey. Listen, you need to come with me, all right? Your father's had a heart attack.
Lulu: Oh, my God, is he okay?
Logan: He's fine, he's fine, but I knew you'd want to be with him, so come on, let's go.
Spinelli: Look, I must protest. Your parental unit would want you to stay here where it's safe.
Lulu: No, I'm going to go see my dad.
Jerry: You have the extra gun. Take it upstairs to the others as fast as you can.
Carly: I can't leave you, all right? Jax would never forgive me, and he's coming back, okay?
Jerry: No, Carly. I wish I had your kind of blind faith, but it's an exercise in denial and futility.
Carly: Don't say it. I don't want to hear it, Jerry. Don't you dare say it.
Jerry: It's true, Carly.
Carly: Then I want you to make me believe it. I want you to tell me every detail.
Patrick: Okay, hold on. I'm going to get you through this.
Leyla: I know.
Patrick: The bullet passed through just above her hip.
Robin: You might've caught a break.
Leyla: So it's a clean wound?
Robin: Yeah. It didn't hit any major organs.
Patrick: The only thing we can do is bandage it and keep the pressure on it. Anything else, we're going to risk too much blood loss.
Leyla: Don't look so worried, Dr. Drake. I have no intention of dying on you.
[Waltz music plays]
Robin: Oh –
[Door slams open]
Lucky: You know, my dad is supposed to be invincible.
Luke: Well, don't punch my ticket yet.
Luke: I have a lot of reasons to hang on to this life. God, you never know what's hurtling through space with your name on it, do you?
Lucky: Tell me about it. It's just so matter of fact, what you just said. It's the truth. You've always spoken the truth. I admire that. I hope that I can be that honest -- you know, with my own children.
Lulu: Dad, are you okay?
Luke: I'm okay, sweetie, I'm okay.
Lulu: I was so scared when Logan told me.
Luke: No, don't be afraid. Please, I'm okay. There's a lot of years left in this old ticker.
Lucky: You know what? You stay here, you should be safe.
Sam: No, I'm coming with you.
Lucky: I'm going to go look for Anthony Zacchara.
Sam: You're going to need backup. Come on, either -- either you can go by yourself, or I'm going to follow you.
Lucky: All right, let's go.
Sam: All right.
Lulu: You were fighting with Anthony?
Luke: Yeah, and I would've taken him, too, if my chest hadn't exploded.
Lulu: That man needs to be stopped.
Luke: Yeah -- ooh -- oh --
Tracy: Luke? Luke --
Luke: No, no, no --
Tracy: Do you want a pill?
Luke: No, no, I'm all right, I'm all right. What I really need is a big tumbler of scotch.
Tracy: Okay, Scott, find him some booze.
Scott: Booze -- yeah, that's a good idea, but I'm a public servant, Tracy, not your servant.
Tracy: And what if I said "please"?
Logan: Come on.
Scott: Yeah, why not? I could use a taste myself.
Logan: Lulu, you going to be all right? Okay.
Logan: You bet.
Patrick: Bleeding is relatively light. We still need to get you on the next boat out of here, though.
Robin: Pulse is still strong and regular.
Leyla: Why do I feel so drowsy?
Patrick: I don't think that's shock.
Robin: It's probably the adrenaline wearing off.
Patrick: Okay, come here. Come around here, keep pressure here. You got it?
Robin: Leyla? I want to say something to you. Can you focus?
Robin: I want to thank you for what you did tonight. Not only for taking the bullet, but for how you tried to control Zacchara. It was really brave.
Leyla: Thank you. That's nice of you to say -- and difficult, I know. I may just be loopy from loss of blood, but since we're being honest, I know you want Patrick back. I won't lie, I want him, too. But not if he wants to be with you.
Nadine: Hey, I'm -- I'm sorry for calling Lulu out like that. I know she's your best friend and I didn't mean to create an awkward situation for you.
Spinelli: The Jackal knows how perplexing the Blond One can be, and rest assured, he would never let a petty misunderstanding upset his blossoming relationship -- make that friendship, sorry -- with my favorite nurse, Nadine.
Nadine: Glad to hear it.
Elizabeth: Nadine? Can I speak to Spinelli alone for a minute?
Spinelli: Hey, uh, maternal one's brow is furrowed -- why?
Elizabeth: Jason told Lucky the truth about Jake.
Spinelli: Stone Cold revealed his paternal identity? Why? I don't understand.
Elizabeth: Well, Lucky was either going to hear it from Sam or me and Jason, so --
Spinelli: I can't imagine the law-abiding one took it well?
Elizabeth: No, he was pretty furious. And I'm sure Sam is working the situation to her advantage
Spinelli: That assumption is -- well, unfortunately, probably right on.
Elizabeth: Obviously, Jason and I haven't had a chance to talk about it, so I have no idea what comes next. But since you're one of his closest friends, I just wanted you to know, in case he -- you know, he needs anything.
Spinelli: Of course. Of course, the Jackal will provide any needed support.
Emily: How did you get here, huh? The storm destroyed all the launches.
Jason: I took a speedboat. Better yet -- what are you doing here alone?
Emily: I'm looking for Nikolas. Okay, this is the situation, Jase. Nikolas' blackouts are getting worse, so he asked me to lock him up in the wine closet to protect me and everybody else from his rages. But when I did, he started yelling for me to let him out. It was awful, Jase. I don't know when Nikolas is normal and when he's not, so -- so I just walked away, and then when I came back to get him, he wasn't there anymore.
Jason: Okay, I -- I know that you're worried about Nikolas, but he can take care of himself. I need to take you down to the stables right now.
Emily: No! No. I can't leave Nikolas.
Nikolas: Have you seen Emily?
Alfred: Not for some time.
Nikolas: I had another blackout and this is the last place I saw her. You haven't seen her?
Alfred: You have no idea what happened?
Nikolas: No, no, but if I did this, I pray to God that I didn't hurt Emily in the process. Does -- does this radio work?
Alfred: Uh -- I'm afraid the news is not good. The storm is not due to lift until daybreak.
Nikolas: So what -- so you're telling me the boats can't get here till --
Alfred: Are you all right, Sir?
Nikolas: Do I have much of a choice? I'm fine, okay, I'm fine. I'm -- I have to be fine for Emily. Excuse me.
Jerry: The waves were like something out of a disaster film. It took every ounce of our combined strength, Jax and I, to get Alexis back to the mainland. And once we arrived, the paramedics assured us that she would get to the hospital and be stabilized. Then we begged them to -to get a return-and-rescue effort.
Carly: But they refused?
Jerry: Yes, they --
Carly: The police and the fire department -- they refused?
Jerry: Yes. The authorities said that they already had their hands full around town, and the harbormaster refused to let any vessels go, so Jax and I realized that we were on our own. So we went back, and halfway through, the boat was engulfed. We went underwater and somehow I managed to -- to surface, and Jax didn’t.
Robin: Whatever happens between you and Patrick is none of my business. I just wanted you to know that it was wrong for me to make you the target of my anger and my frustration. I mean, I admit I was heartbroken when Patrick and I broke up. And I realized that I made you the scapegoat, instead of taking responsibility for my own actions, and I am very sorry for that. There's something else that I want to make clear to you. I know that you didn't steal Patrick from me in any way. Patrick and I just have very different life goals and it's just that simple. It was difficult for me to accept at first, but now I'm getting on with my life -- just like he is, just like he has every right to.
Leyla: I appreciate your honesty. And, of course, your apology is accepted.
Robin: Thank you.
Jerry: So I -- I dove under, over and over again, until -- until I thought my lungs would burst. And I screamed to the waves until I lost my voice, shouting Jax's name, and there was no sign of him, no trace of him. You know, Jax was more than my brother -- that's a -- that's a biological accident -- he was my best friend. He was the -- the only person that -- in this Godforsaken world that I -- I loved and trusted. Why couldn't it have been me?
Lulu: Hey, Anthony Zacchara! You want me? Here I am! So leave everyone else alone and come get me! Now's your chance -- take it or leave it!
Anthony: You're a mouthy little brat, aren't you?
Lulu: Hello, freak.
Anthony: Oh -- is this going to be fun.
Lulu: Yeah, was it fun when you gave my father a heart attack?
Anthony: It was a blast -- I never scared anybody to death before. He did die, didn't he?
Lulu: My father's doing just fine.
Anthony: What a waste of air. Your father's a washed-up has-been; he can't even defend his own kid. It doesn't matter. Nothing's going to help you now.
Johnny: Leave her alone.
Spinelli: You know, Stone Cold is somewhat reluctant to ask for anything, even if it is his heart's desire. So if -- if you want to -- if you want to be with him, if -- if you want Stone Cold to help you raise little Jake and Cameron, you're going to have to tell him.
Elizabeth: I honestly don't know if I can do that.
Spinelli: Pardon the Jackal if he may seem obtuse, but it seems that at last you and Stone Cold are free to take the relationship plunge, as it were.
Elizabeth: Even when I'm in the process of divorcing a man I have been best friends with since I was a teenager? He just found out that the son we were raising together isn't really his. I've caused a lot of pain, and I am ting to avoid causing more, if I possibly can. So the last thing I want to do is let Jason hope for a future I won't be able to give him.
Spinelli: Do you -- do you think it's possible for you to raise Jake without Stone Cold in the picture?
Jason: I just need you to be reasonable. Elizabeth, Spinelli, Lulu, and Nadine are at the stables. I want to take you down there. I promise you I will come back and I will find Nikolas.
Emily: No, you need to trust me on this, Jase, we have to go look for Nikolas together. Come on.
Jason: No, no, no, listen to me. You don't understand how dangerous it is in this house. One wrong turn, and you're dead. You need to come with me right now.
Emily: What -- no!
Jason: What are you --
Nikolas: Get your hands off her.
Tracy: Ooh. Your days of scoffing in the face of death just ended tonight. In fact, when we get home, I'm going to have Monica run every test known to modern science, and whatever she recommends with regard to diet and exercise -- cigars and alcohol -- is exactly what you're going to do.
Luke: If you don't stop yapping at me like a wife, wife, I'm going to trade you in on a younger model.
Tracy: Hmm. Huh, too bad your heart couldn't take it -- ha.
Tracy: You are so lucky to have me.
Luke: Don't I know it. We're a damn good match. You make me almost happy. I kind of like that.
Tracy: Now you're really scaring me.
Luke: I'll make you a deal. You stop hovering, and don't turn into some kind of diet-monitoring pain in the ass, and I won't die on you.
Tracy: It's a deal.
Carly: Why did you and Jax risk coming back at all?
Jerry: Because Jax was determined to get back to you.
Carly: why didn't you stop him? You knew the boat barely made it to the mainland, you had to know it probably wasn't going to make it back. Why didn't you stop him? Why did you let Jax risk his life?
Jerry: Why would I stop him? I agreed with Jax. It was worth risking our lives to get back to you, Carly.
Coop: Do you need help moving her?
Patrick: No. She's resting comfortably the moment.
Coop: All right, well, I'll try to make it back to check on you.
Patrick: Thanks. Coop did a check on the rooms. He said Ric and Sonny were holding their own.
Robin: Leyla's pretty stable, too. The pressure bandage we put on is keeping blood loss to a minimum. As long as her pulse is strong, there's no reason to keep her awake.
Patrick: Yeah. What you said to her earlier -- it was very generous.
Robin: I meant it. I want you to be happy -- even if that means we have to let each other go.
Patrick: Yeah. It might be the only way. But I haven't stopped loving you.
Robin: I know. Me, too.
Johnny: Put the gun down.
Anthony: I have to protect you. Johnny, I can't let this girl do to you what your mother did to me.
Johnny: You loved Mom. I don't love Lulu -- I barely know her.
Anthony: Then what do you care what happens to her?
Johnny: I ca what happens to you. Put down the gun, and let's go home.
Anthony: You care what happens to me? I'm deeply touched. I care what happens to me, too. That's why this little bitch has to die by my hand -- or yours. Yours would be better. Go ahead.
Anthony: Kill her.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Carly: What I need is my husband. I'm going to go find Jax.
Emily: Nikolas! Nikolas --
Nikolas: Get out of the way!
Emily: Oh --
Johnny: This is for my mother.
