Robin: Got a GSW with severe blood loss. I need three units, stat.
Nurse: Trauma one is open.
Russell: You can wait out here.
Kate: No, I'm not leaving him.
Robin: Let her stay.
Leo: Epiphany, order me a 12 lead, a CBC, cardiac enzymes, and a basic metabolic panel, okay? Thank you. Excuse me. All right. So how are you feeling?
Luke: You tell me.
Leo: All right, well, I'm not going to lie to you, Mr. Spencer, you're a mess.
Det. Harper: Did you see anyone else in the area of the ballroom?
Carly: No one.
Det. Harper: You went to the stables to get Ms. Webber. Did you pass anyone in the corridor on your way back? And what about Mr. Cassadine? Any reason you know that he'd want to hurt his fiancée?
Nikolas: I gave this ring to Emily last night. And I told her how terrified I was that this disease or whatever I have would kill me before I had a chance to marry her. Oh, irony. When she said yes, it was the perfect moment. Oh, God, what have I done to her?
Leo: Excuse me. All right, this procedure will stabilize you, and then once it's done, we can talk about long-term surgical options, okay?
Tracy: I want to see your credentials.
Luke: Don't antagonize the nice doctor, pumpkin. He's about to slice me open and rewind my clock. Let's do it.
Leo: Okay. I'll scrub in. I'll see you in the cath lab, yeah? And don't worry, Mrs. Spencer, you're dealing with the best here.
Tracy: Okay, so we're through the worst of it. I never thought we'd get off that damn island.
Luke: We're halfway home, wife.
Tracy: I don't like seeing you in pain.
Luke: You should see it from this side. I need you to do some-- something for me. If anything happens --
Tracy: Uh-uh. Uh-uh. Nothing's going to happen.
Luke: I need you -- I need you to keep an eye on Lulu. You know, like you do when I'm away.
Tracy: You listen to me. You are not going to make me a widow.
Lulu: What are you going to do now?
Johnny: My whole life has been about my father, whether managing him or finding a way to run away from him.
Lulu: Well, not anymore. You can do anything you want now. You're free.
Skye: Shouldn't D.A. Lansing be on that next helicopter?
EMT: He's stable. You know, the patch job that the doctors did is holding, and the transfusion is making all the difference.
Trevor: Don't underestimate my son.
Ric: All it took was a near-death experience for you to appreciate me.
Robin: Okay, I am turning your case over to Dr. Behar. He's one of our best surgeons.
Kate: He needs an operation?
Robin: The bullet wound isn't terrible, but it needs to be sutured. It should be pretty quick.
Sonny: I've had worse, right, Robin?
Robin: If memory serves me.
Kate: Well, this isn't how I wanted our evening to end. But we're both alive, so I'll take it.
Epiphany: Trauma three's available.
Patrick: B.P. is 80/40, pulse is 120. She's been in and out of consciousness, no apparent organ damage. Hey. Hey, welcome back. You're at G.H.
Epiphany: We've got her now, Doctor.
Patrick: Okay. I'll see you soon.
Robin: I'm sorry I deserted you.
Patrick: No, no, there wasn't enough doctors to go around. It's a miracle more people didn't die.
Robin: Well, they would have if it weren't for you. You were great.
Patrick: You were pretty great yourself.
Sonny: I need to see Jason or Carly before they put me under.
Kate: I think they're still on the island. The police needed to interview them. I could give them a message.
Sonny: Don't worry about it.
Elizabeth: Nikolas would never hurt Emily. It was Anthony Zacchara. He stabbed Ric Lansing, he dragged me up to the turret and threatened to throw me off. You only had to listen to the man ramble to know that he was insane.
Det. Harper: What exactly did Zacchara say?
Elizabeth: He made Jason get up on the wall with me and told him that if he didn't jump, he was going to push me off.
Det. Harper: How did Zacchara get from there to the courtyard with two bullets in him?
Elizabeth: He pulled a gun on us, Jason shot him -- it was self-defense.
Det. Harper: Did the impact push him back over the turret wall?
Elizabeth: No, he jumped. I'm telling you, the man was crazy.
Det. Harper: That doesn't mean he killed Ms. Quartermaine. Look, you said you and Mr. Morgan were the first ones to reach the ballroom. Did you arrive at the same time? Was one of you a couple steps ahead of the other?
Jason: I got here first.
Det. Harper: Did you see any sign of Anthony Zacchara?
Jason: All I saw was Nikolas holding my dead sister.
Det. Harper: Where is Mr. Cassadine now?
Nadine: Mr. Cassadine, why don't you come inside?
Nikolas: Hmm? Oh, no, thank you -- um --
Nikolas: Nadine, of course. I'm -- I'm sorry. Where are my manners here? You're a guest in my house; I should remember your name. I apologize.
Nadine: It's been a terrible night, you're in shock.
Nikolas: Am I? The love of my life, the person I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with is dead, so I don't know. You tell me -- what does my life actually mean right now? See, people -- I think -- I think we have this inherent blind spot. We put things off, we -- we tell ourselves that we'll make decisions tomorrow, that we'll declare our feelings tomorrow, that we'll take a chance on someone tomorrow, right? But, hey, look. Look there. Today's a new day, and there isn't a tomorrow. There's no Emily, there's no sound of her voice telling me that she loves me, no smile that says everything's going to be okay, no look in her eyes that makes me taking my next breath even worth the effort. So, what is the point of anything?
Robin: Well, if I had to think of one positive thing that happened last night, it would be the fact that we had a chance to be really honest with each other. I feel more at peace with the choice that we made.
Patrick: Listen, you deserve everything you want out of life. If that -- if that includes having a child -- however you choose to do it -- then that's what I wish for you with all my heart. Hey, how is he?
EMT: B.P.'s 90/50. Somebody sewed him up with some fishing line.
Patrick: Yeah, and I did a hell of a job. We were waiting for you to come in. Listen, we're going to get you to O.R. as soon as possible.
Ric: Is Alexis okay?
Carly: I walked over to shut the door; someone grabbed me from behind and started to choke me. I blacked out. The next thing I know, I woke up with Johnny Zacchara giving me CPR.
Mac: Did you see the attacker's hands, or his shoes? Maybe you recognized his cologne?
Carly: It all happened so fast. I don't know. The only thing I do know is it wasn't Anthony Zacchara because he had Elizabeth upstairs threatening to kill her.
Mac: So I'm to believe that there were two killers running around on the loose here?
Carly: I think the person who killed Leticia was coming after me. He was sending me text messages, untraceable text messages, and I think he lured me here.
Carly: Because I think he wanted to kill me.
Jax: Carly, where the hell did you go?
Carly: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Oh, God, I'm such an idiot. I'm such -- are you okay?
Jax: Yeah, I'm fine, I'm fine. I can't say the same about Jerry here. What happened to your neck?
Carly: Nothing, I'm okay. It's okay.
Jax: Carly, what happened?
Mac: Someone tried to strangle her.
Carly: I don't think so, no, but it doesn't matter because we're alive, okay?
Jax: Do you know what it would do to me if I lost you?
Carly: Just hold me, please.
Jerry: Oh –
Johnny: I'm sorry -- about everything.
Lulu: Don't apologize for saving my life, okay?
Sam: Lulu. Have you seen Lucky?
Lulu: I thought he was on the helicopter with my dad.
Sam: No, he wasn't on board.
Lulu: Should I be worried?
Sam: Look, there was a blowup between him, Jason, and Elizabeth last night, and he just seemed really upset, that's all.
Lulu: And why weren't you with him?
Sam: Because he went after Zacchara, and I obviously couldn't stop him. I'm really starting to get worried.
Jason: They'll want to take the body.
Elizabeth: They'll want to do an autopsy.
Jason: I know it shouldn't matter what they do with her now. She's not even Emily anymore, she's gone. But I don't want them to touch her.
Elizabeth: You don't have to stay. I'll be with her.
Jason: You sure? Because I have to tell Monica, before she finds out from someone else.
Patrick: Is this our internal bleeder?
EMT: Possible collapsed lung, decreased respiration, and chest sounds are uneven.
Patrick: What's his numbers?
EMT: B.P. is 78/42.
Patrick: Okay, prep him for surgery. Page Dr. Archer.
Jerry: Oh, little brother? You should have your wife's throat checked. That's a nasty bruise.
Carly: I can breathe a lot better than you. Why don't you let the doctors take care of you?
Patrick: Okay, let's go.
Russell: Your ex-wife is in stable condition, it was a straightforward appendectomy.
Ric: So she's all right?
Russell: Yeah -- in much better shape than you are at the moment. Listen, you need surgery to clean up the patchwork that Dr. Drake did on you. So we'll have you in the O.R. the minute we get one available, all right?
Ric: Thank you.
Skye: Well, I have to say, you certainly know how to show a woman a good time.
Ric: So what made you hang around me all night?
Skye: I danced with the one that brung me?
Ric: Oh, good.
Skye: No, I realized something tonight, I did. You're pretty much a world-class screw-up -- going after the wrong things, after the wrong people -- but you see, I know how that feels. So I guess I just decided to stick around and help another traveler, another lost soul. Who knows? Maybe my work here isn't quite done yet.
Leo: So Mr. Spencer is stable, but his heart is severely damaged.
Tracy: Then fix it. With the amount of money my family has poured into this hospital --
Leo: Look, money can't buy a miracle here, Mrs. Spencer.
Tracy: I know exactly what money can buy, so tell me what my husband needs.
Leo: Okay, well, he'll need a bypass surgery as soon as we can schedule it.
Leo: He'll also need a complete lifestyle change. Can you buy that? If he doesn't stop his boozing, his cigars, the general carousing, this is a waste of time and your money.
Elizabeth: Did I tell you how beautiful you looked last night, that your dress was perfect? You looked like you stepped right out of a storybook. And when I watched you and Nikolas dance, all I could think of was how all your dreams had come true – all the way back to high school when you had a crush on him. And you kept looking for hope when there really wasn't much. And you would say to me, "Elizabeth, is -- is he looking at me, did he notice me? Nikolas just said, 'How are you?' What do you think that meant?" You said, "It wasn't what he said, it was the way he said it." And I tried to let you down easy, but in the end, you were right. Nikolas fell hopelessly in love with you. You trusted your heart, and it paid off. That's a big lesson for me.
Elizabeth: Em, I promise you, I will not waste another minute. I will follow my heart the way you wanted me to.
Skye: Alexis? Ric's in the E.R., he's been asking for you.
Alexis: Okay, well, you can tell him I'm much better, and I just talked to the girls and they're doing really well.
Skye: Well, you seem reasonably mobile. Maybe you could tell him yourself.
Leo: Place it one inch every six hours to the chest wall. Give Mr. Spencer two milligrams of morphine --
Skye: Excuse me?
Skye: Which Mr. Spencer -- Lucky or Luke?
Leo: Luke Spencer.
Skye: Well, what happened to him? I'm a friend.
Leo: Well, we just gave him an angioplasty -- he had a heart attack.
Patrick: They're going to take you into surgery any minute. You have nothing to worry about.
Leyla: I'm glad I saw you before I went in. I want to thank you for taking such good care of me.
Patrick: You took a bullet that was meant for me. You saved my life. I still don't know why.
Leyla: I guess I wasn't thinking clearly.
Sonny: No. Tell me something -- how do I get to survive with flying colors, and Emily -- she was very special to me, I loved her once.
Kate: I had a feeling.
Sonny: Everybody hated us together -- it almost ruined my relationship with Jason. Everybody would say, you know, it's going to end badly, and the -- the truth is that she was too young to be in a relationship with me. But I got to tell you, she was the kindest, gentlest person I've ever known. She was the one who figured out that I was bipolar, and she had to force me to get help and -- so she pretty much changed life. And what do I do to repay her? I bring down Anthony Zacchara on her.
Sam: Lucky's missing, and I thought he'd be in here.
Elizabeth: Well, I haven't seen him. Maybe you should go tell Mac.
Sam: Tell him what, exactly, Elizabeth? That -- that Detective Spencer is on a freefall because he just found out that his baby son isn't his? Yeah, that sounds like a really good idea -- humiliate him just a little bit more.
Elizabeth: I'm not going to do this -- I am not going to stand here over my best friend's body and argue with you.
Sam: You are such a bitch. Lucky loved Emily, too, and he is going to be devastated when he finds out that she's been killed. Has that ever occurred to you?
Elizabeth: Emily, Lucky, Nikolas, and I, we were all best friends -- not that you would know anything about that.
Sam: Oh, no, of course not, "best friends." Was it worth trashing Lucky and all those years of friendship just so you could go chasing after Jason?
Kate: I'm as much to blame for what happened as you are. If I hadn't come to Port Charles, Trevor would've never followed me here.
Sonny: You're not the reason that Trevor came here.
Kate: Trevor came to solve my legal problems, Sonny.
Sonny: Trevor came to destroy me. It was never Anthony Zacchara's idea. It was, you know, Trevor’s chance to get to me.
Kate: Well, he failed, didn't he, hmm? Maybe they'll even charge him as Anthony’s accessory.
Sonny: Trevor's never going to be held accountable for what happened last night. He's going to let Anthony Zacchara take the blame for everything.
Alexis: Molly wants to bring you dinner.
Ric: Peas, no doubt. That way, she doesn't have to eat them herself. So you're all right?
Alexis: I'm missing my appendix.
Alexis: And I have to sit in this chair for the next 24 hours, but aside from that, I think I'm in a lot better shape than you are.
Ric: That was nice of you to wheel yourself all the way down here to gloat in person.
Alexis: What should I tell Molly?
Ric: Tell her I'm looking forward to it. I was lying there helpless, looking at my father with his -- with his empty regrets, and I thought to myself, "In 20 years, is this going to be -- is this going to be me with Molly?" I got to break that cycle, Alexis, and it starts with you and me. I want to make peace.
Tracy: Hi, handsome.
Luke: You must have the wrong room, lady.
Tracy: Guess what -- procedure was a success.
Luke: What brings you here?
Tracy: I never left your side.
Skye: I think he means me. I heard you found yourself some trouble.
Luke: I'm on the mend now. It never hurts to see your shining face, blaze.
Tracy: You know what? This little reunion's going to have to wait. Luke's under strict orders -- only one visitor at a time, and his wife takes precedence.
Skye: I just needed to see for myself that you were okay, Luke.
Luke: Always a pleasure.
Tracy: So you're half dead, but you can still flirt?
Luke: You got nothing to worry about, wife. I'm saving all my flirting for you.
Nikolas: Who the -- hey, get -- get these people out -- get -- get the hell away from her!
Elizabeth: Nikolas, they have to do this.
Nikolas: How could you leave these people alone with her? You're not taking her away from me, you understand me?
Det. Harper: Mr. Cassadine, I'm very sorry for your loss, but this is a murder investigation.
Nikolas: I don't care about your murder -- you get out of my house! Just get out of here, leave us alone!
Edward: Well, they told me the board meeting was up here. You're a little overdressed, aren't you?
Skye: I guess you haven't heard about last night.
Edward: What's going on, Skye?
Skye: I'm so sorry. There's something I have to tell you.
Monica: Em, hi, it's your mother. I'm calling because I want to know everything about last night. I haven't heard from you, and I'm dying to know how the party went. So, when you get this message -- when you -- when you get this, um, give me a call, okay? Love you. Something's happened.
Carly: I don't want the boys to know that you're in the hospital.
Sonny: I don't want to scare them. How's Jason?
Carly: He's devastated.
Sonny: You going to tell me how you got those bruises on your neck?
Carly: I'm fine. There's -- there's plenty of time for that later. I need to find Jax. So -- I'm really glad you're okay.
Sonny: How you doing? You all right?
Sonny: If you want to go, I mean, I -- I mean, I'm just going to go to sleep. You're probably ready to fall down.
Kate: Well, if I'm going to fall down, I'm going to do it right here with you.
Kate: Move over --
Sonny: All right, I'm going to try.
Kate: Tough guy. That's okay?
Sonny: Yeah, I'm all right.
Jax: What's this about?
Carly: You just never know how long you're going to have. Just don't let me go, okay? Just don't let me go.
Tracy: Your father is stable, but he's in guarded condition, so don't say anything to upset him.
Luke: Is that you, daughter?
Lulu: Hi, Dad.
Luke: Some party, huh?
Luke: What fun. Hmm. But I told you the Spencers would all get out of there in one piece -- more or less. Where's Lucky?
Ric: There's too much to carry -- you know, the blame, the anger.
Ric: Look, you're a great mother, and -- and a fairly amazing woman. It's -- it's just time that I treated you accordingly.
Alexis: I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with all this.
Ric: Just accept it, okay? I'm just hoping for a ceasing of animosity here. I -- hey -- I know it's a hard habit to break, but I'll try to lead by example, prove to you that I -- I mean what I say.
Alexis: I'm not perfect, and I'm -- I'm certainly not blameless. But for our daughter's sake, I could try not to hate you anymore.
Skye: Grandfather, I'm so sorry.
Edward: Poor little Emily. Sweet and -- and beautiful Emily. I did this to her, Skye.
Skye: Of course you didn’t.
Edward: I'm going to tell you something, dear, that -- that I've never told anyone. When I was a young man, there was someone I idolized -- a brilliant businessman. He came to my college one day to -- to give a speech. Hmm. And I waited all day to meet him -- the most successful man I'd ever shaken hands with. Hmm. I didn't care much for his politics, but, oh, God, I idolized his ambition. And I asked him what the secret was, and a -- a shadow kind of fell over his eyes. And he said simply, "Whatever it takes. You have to have the stomach to do whatever it takes." And that's the way I lived. And then -- then something started to change for this man. I saw him grieve for a son, a war hero lost in a -- a terrible accident, and a daughter hidden away in shame, and another daughter killed in a plane crash. And all the time, this man kept getting richer, hmm? And then his son -- the president -- was assassinated. And one by one, this -- this man's family, his golden children, fell away to -- to drugs and -- and tragedy, accused of -- of horrible crimes, and -- and victims of -- of accidents. And all that I ever wanted to be was like him. And now I am. I've buried my own children, and my grandchildren, and my beloved Lila, who deserved so much better than me. I did whatever it took, and I will pay until the day I die for what I've become. Hmm. People used to say how lucky Emily was. Oh, yes -- poor little orphan girl taken in by a family who -- who could give her the world. No, we -- we were the lucky ones. So I -- I think you should run, Skye. I -- you should -- you should get away from me and -- and my poison -- while -- while you still can.
Monica: Is Emily all right?
Jason: Emily died last night.
Jason: She was strangled early this morning at Wyndemere and Nikolas found her.
Monica: No -- no, no, Jason. No, that is a mistake. She's --
Jason: Police think a man named Anthony Zacchara did it.
Jason: Anthony Zacchara.
Monica: My -- I've read about him. He's -- uh -- he's a gangster, isn't he? I mean, is he --
Monica: Is he one of your friends?
Jason: I'd never met him before.
Monica: Oh, but I'm sure -- I'm sure he was anxious to meet you. Oh, my -- you know something? I -- I spent every day with blood on my hands, trying to save a life. When was the last time you saved a life, Jason? My God, Emily worshipped you. And you are nothing but a killer, because you killed her!
Jason: Let me get you someone --
Monica: Who? Who, Jason? They're all dead! A.J., Alan -- who you were too busy killing to even go and say goodbye to! And, my God, now -- now Emily? Oh, my God!
Jason: I'm sorry.
Monica: Get out of here! Get out! You are the only thing I have left, and I don't want you! Get out! And don't you dare think about coming to her funeral, don't you dare show your face around here. Get out! You are not my son! You are not -- oh, my God.
Singer: Oh, to even change a diaper
Monica: Oh, my God.
Singer: Or to teach me how to throw please don't go
Nikolas: No. This is my house, and I want everybody out of here! Get out of here!
Sam: Hey, hey, hey, listen. She's gone, okay, she's gone.
Nikolas: No –
Sam: Let the police do their job --
Nikolas: No --
Sam: Get her some justice.
Nikolas: Get away from me!
Nikolas: It's okay.
Elizabeth: Emily wouldn't want you to remember her like this. This isn't her, Nikolas. Your heart is where you'll keep her forever.
Nikolas: No. No.
Elizabeth: It's okay, come on.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Coop: I miss you.
Tracy: Happy Thanksgiving.
Robin: What invitation?
Patrick: Mac invited me over to Thanksgiving dinner.
Carly: Happy first Thanksgiving.
Monica: Now all we can do is figure out a way to go on.
