Nikolas: You're here.

Emily: That's stating the obvious.

Nikolas: No, I mean, I -- I thought that I would only see you at the house, but I guess you followed me here.

Emily: Well, I'm not sure I followed you here, but I know I wanted to be here.

Nikolas: The real question is, how can you be anywhere if you're dead?

Sonny: You ran away from this house to escape Anthony Zacchara and everything he stood for. Now all of a sudden, you're loyal? Why, because he's locked up in an insane asylum?

Johnny: I'm claiming my inheritance.

Sonny: You were ready to put a bullet in Anthony, Johnny. You wanted out. And I hope for your sake you haven't changed your mind.

Kate: Don't threaten me, Trevor.

Trevor: Kate, in your heart, you know that Sonny leads a dangerous life, and if you keep seeing him, you're going to put yourself in the line of fire.

Kate: Oh, this coming from the man who cost me my career and nearly my life.

Trevor: If you don't think that I care for you, why would I come here, trying to stop you from being caught in the middle? I can offer you protection that Sonny can’t.

Kate: I doubt that.

Trevor: Katie, I know how hard you worked and how much you suffered in order to become editor in chief at "Couture." It's not too late to get that back.

Jason: Jake will be safer away from me.

Elizabeth: Jason -- this just proves that Jake couldn't have a better father than you.

Lucky: I told Elizabeth that I wanted to continue as Jake's father.

Sam: And she actually agreed?

Lucky: She knows it's best. Jake and Cameron -- they'll always be my children.

Emily: I love being here -- I always have.

Epiphany: Can I help you, Mr. Cassadine?

Nikolas: Um -- yes, yes. Dr. Drake -- Patrick -- said that he left something here for me.

Epiphany: This must be a very difficult time for you.

Nikolas: Yes, yes, yes, it is.

Epiphany: We're all sorry for your loss. I know Emily will be missed by everyone here.

Emily: Thank you.

Nikolas: Thank you, thank you. I know that would mean a lot to her.

Epiphany: She knows. I bet she's looking down on you right now.

Emily: How sweet.

Nikolas: No. It's crazy. I -- I don't know. Maybe you're here because I want you with me when I got this news.

Emily: Is it good?

Nikolas: Patrick -- he got that appointment with Dr. Lipman, the specialist in Zurich, so --

Emily: God, Nikolas, that's wonderful. You're going to get diagnosed.

Nikolas: What do I tell him about you?

Elizabeth: I always intended on being a custodial parent once I realized the divorce was inevitable.

Jason: We've always wanted what's best for Jake.

Elizabeth: Yeah, but he would be happy with a father who loves him as much as you do -- that's what makes this so difficult.

Jason: Sonny's kids -- they're surrounded by guards 24 hours a day. I mean, they get plenty of love, but they do not have a normal childhood, but Jake can have that without me.

Elizabeth: God, I wish more than anything we could just be together.

Jason: So do I.

Sam: I am so glad that you still want to be the boys' father.

Lucky: I know Elizabeth -- she's done a lot of things wrong, but she's still a decent mother.

Sam: I know, I know, Lucky. It's -- I just hope that -- I probably shouldn't mention this.

Lucky: What?

Sam: "What?" Lucky, Elizabeth is still in love with Jason, and -- and I just -- I don't see her being committed. I see her being torn about keeping Jake away from his biological father, and she's never going to be 100% committed to you raising those boys.

Lucky: Sam, I am committed, and that is all that matters.

Sam: Really? Then how's it going to work? You're just going to show up at her house like some, what, visiting uncle or something?

Lucky: No, I'm not going to be showing up at Elizabeth's house for a few hours here and there.

Sam: Okay, then how do you see it working?

Lucky: I'll set up a schedule. I want those boys a part of my life -- my new life without Elizabeth.

Trevor: I've been in touch with Warren James. He talks about you all the time.

Kate: Oh -- did he tell you that everyone at "Couture" misses me?

Trevor: More importantly, the circulation is down.

Kate: Giselle hasn't had an original idea in a decade. I could've told him that. But I guess he'll just have to live with it.

Trevor: I can see that you still have a taste for the business.

Kate: I have plans of my own, Trevor. I don't need "Couture."

Trevor: Katie, you can get it back. I'll call in a couple of favors. I'll get your number of days reduced here of community service and transfer it to Manhattan.

Kate: And forget that you're the reason that I lost my career, forget that you drugged me so that I'd get a D.U.I.? What is the catch, Trevor? Why the sudden interest in wanting to help me?

Trevor: Enough suffering. You now know what it feels like to lose everything and start from square one.

Kate: Oh, so this was some sort of test?

Trevor: Oh, Katie, you're the one who wanted to know what it would be like with Sonny. Well, now you know. And don't kid yourself -- his is a life of violence and it comes first. You want to be a prop -- something he wears on his arm for decoration?

Kate: Careful, Trevor. Your jealousy is showing.

Trevor: Katie, we had a wonderful life together and you can get it back.

Kate: You opened doors for me, Trevor. It was my talent and hard work that got me to the top. I achieved success once, I can do it again.

Trevor: This new magazine that you're talking about with Jax -- it pales in comparison to what we could achieve together.

Kate: I will never accept help from you, Trevor. I would rather clean bedpans for the rest of my life.

Trevor: Huh. Well, there's a picture.

Kate: Okay, this conversation is over.

Trevor: You deserve so much more than Sonny can offer you. But without my love, you'll never see it.

Sonny: Trevor's making plans to expand the Zacchara organization into Port Charles and he's doing it for one reason -- he hates me.

Johnny: So?

Sonny: So if you're going to be sitting at this desk, then you might -- you might want to look at the wisdom of some of Trevor's decisions.

Johnny: You got a sweet setup in Port Charles -- prime location, shipping routes.

Sonny: I ain't letting anybody move in.

Johnny: We'll see, won't we?

Sonny: You don't understand what's going on here, Johnny.

Sonny: Trevor wants you front and center -- that way, he can pull the strings. So what you need to do is turn the tables -- see, you use him before he can use you.

Johnny: Whose agenda you working here, Corinthos, yours or mine?

Sonny: Well, if you cut Trevor loose, we both benefit.

Johnny: And I'm just supposed to take your word on that?

Sonny: Siding with Trevor is going to get you killed.

Johnny: Better the devil you know. I'm going to head up my father's business and deal with our enemies the way I see fit.

Sonny: All right. Can't say I didn't warn you.

Patrick: Melina's surgery went well. Post-op in cases like hers can be slow and difficult.

Robin: Well, I'm happy to consult, given her original --

Leyla: Melina's latest MRIs, Doctor.

Patrick: Oh, thanks.

Robin: The patient has been experiencing seizures. We should put her on a Dilantin drip.

Leyla: Couldn't that trigger arrhythmias, Dr. Scorpio?

Patrick: After repairing the intracranial hemorrhage, I inserted a ventriculostomy. I think we should give it time to work.

Robin: Melina's fiancé and family are praying for her recovery. She's young; she has her whole life ahead of her. Now is not the time to take chances.

Patrick: I think we should wait a day.

Leyla: Well, the seizures are episodic and not severe, so we could always prescribe Ativan, and that'll help reduce the intracranial pressure.

Patrick: I think that's a compromise we can all live with.

Nadine: Is everything okay?

Epiphany: I don't enjoy watching a slow train-wreck.

Robin: Thank you for your diligence, Leyla.

Leyla: That was awkward.

Patrick: You did what you thought was right for the patient. Melina's case is difficult. Answers don't come easy, but you kept a clear head.

Leyla: Thanks, Dr. Drake.

Patrick: Want to grab dinner or something?

Leyla: Are you serious?

Leyla: You are not being fair.

Patrick: Leyla, all I did was ask you to go --

Leyla: Every day I come to work knowing you love Robin, knowing you were willing to die for her. In case you forgot, I took a bullet to stop that from happening.

Patrick: And I'm grateful --

Leyla: I don't need your gratitude or your love. In fact, I acted in the moment, and I'm glad nobody died. Your feelings for Robin are crystal clear, and I don't want to be your backup girl.

Patrick: That was not my intention.

Leyla: I have a career; I want to be a doctor someday.

Patrick: You know I respect that, don't do that.

Leyla: Good, because from now on, I prefer our relationship as strictly professional.

Patrick: Leyla, I understand why you're upset -- all I did was ask you to go for dinner.

Leyla: Oh, stop it. I'm fed up with your garbage. I should've trusted my instincts and stayed away from you. Now leave me the hell alone.

Lucky: I figure Elizabeth and I will have a normal custody arrangement. And when I have the boys, I'll take them back to my house.

Sam: Where the four of you lived as a family?

Lucky: Well, you know what? Jake is too young to know the difference, and Cameron -- he's a happy, easygoing kid.

Sam: I know, I know, but still. I think it would be really weird for them to all be back in the family house where they shared with their mother.

Lucky: They'll adapt, as long as they know that they're safe and loved.

Sam: Okay, you're right, you're right. You know what, Lucky? You are a great dad, and I'm sure, I'm positive the kids are going to be fine.

Lucky: Yeah, you'll get to see for yourself. I was hoping you'd be around to help.

Sam: Oh, no. I mean, I -- I couldn’t. I -- I couldn’t.

Lucky: Sam --

Sam: No, I wouldn't want to confuse them any more, no.

Lucky: You are great with kids.

Sam: Thank you. I mean, I'd -- I'd like to think I would be great. I mean, I was almost a mother once, but no. I -- I couldn't bear the thought of them having to see another woman in their family home

Lucky: Well, then -- I was just hoping you'd want to spend time with them.

Sam: I would. I mean, of course I would, but not there. I don't know -- maybe somewhere else, like the park or Kelly’s or --

Lucky: Or here.

Sam: Here?

Lucky: Your apartment.

Sam: Okay. I mean, why not? I -- I guess that would be okay. There's absolutely no association to them here, and I think that Cam would really like it here -- there's a hot tub --

Lucky: Mm-hmm.

Sam: I mean, not that we would ever leave him without any supervision or put the water too hot or --

Lucky: Spoken like a mom.

Sam: I really don't want to overstep. But I -- I really do see it being fun.

Lucky: I think it's a good idea. Thank you.

Kate: Ooh! Oh --

Elizabeth: I am so sorry. Oh, I can't believe I did this.

Kate: Please -- it's okay, we all have our moments. You all right?

Elizabeth: Yes. No -- look, it's cracked.

Kate: Well, you're obviously upset over more than spilled makeup -- although, I can empathize. I once had a good cry over a broken Elodie eyeliner. Do you want to talk about it?

Elizabeth: I can’t.

Kate: Okay, well, don't worry, I won't take it personally. I feel like these days half of my life is a big secret.

Elizabeth: You know, if you can't handle the danger and violence in Sonny's life, get out now -- before you fall so in love, your heart belongs to him, and then you realize too late that you just can't be together.

Sonny: We got problems with the Zaccharas.

Jason: What happened?

Sonny: I thought about what you said -- that Johnny went to the ball, right --

Jason: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: To stop his dad, okay? So I went to see him. So I figured he -- the last thing he wants to do is turn out like his old man, having Trevor run the business behind the scenes.

Jason: What'd he say?

Sonny: I told him that if he cut ties with Trevor, I'd work with him, help him transition out of the family business. So what does he do? Gets all defensive, and he says, "No, no, no, no, no, I'm the man in the charge." Things are going to get ugly.

[Leyla sighs]

Coleman: Welcome, ladies.

Leyla: Hi.

Coleman: Well, I hope you're here for the competition.

Leyla: What competition?

Coleman: Well, it's amateur table dance night. All ladies are welcome to participate; you can take off as little or as much as you want to.

Leyla: Yeah, no, thanks.

Coleman: Well, you might want to rethink that. You see, at the end of the night, we're going to add up all the tips, and the girl with the most money wins a $100 bonus from the house.

Nadine: We'll take a pass.

Coleman: Come on, man. I mean, as sexy as you guys are, that could be mucho dinero, huh?

Nadine: I make enough with my day job, but thank you.

Leyla: Yeah.

Coleman: All right, just throwing it out there. What can I get for you?

Nadine: I'll have a beer, please.

Leyla: Make that two. Actually, on second thought, make that a vodka, straight up.

Nadine: I never pegged you as the "straight up" type.

Leyla: I'm usually not, but I really need to unwind.

Robin: Elizabeth, can you hand me Mr. Anderson's chart, please?

Elizabeth: Sure.

Robin: Thank you. Oh. I'm losing my mind. Thank you.

Elizabeth: Well, join the club, because all I want to do right now is sit with Emily and feel sorry for myself.

Robin: Anything I can do to help?

Elizabeth: You could try, but it's hopeless, because my situation is impossible and I have no one to blame but myself.

Robin: You want impossible? How about finding the perfect guy and then breaking up with him because he doesn't want to be a dad?

Sonny: Trevor needs a figurehead he can hide behind and Johnny's playing right into him.

Jason: Johnny's a little more sane than his father.

Sonny: He's a loose cannon. He thinks he's got a lot to prove, he's reckless, which makes him more dangerous. He's never been involved in the business, doesn't know who to trust, and he wants to control Trevor. Trevor is not going to let that happen -- you know that. So he's going to push Trevor, Trevor is going to push back, and that is when the Zaccharas are the most vulnerable. I just hope we have a chance to capitalize before all hell breaks loose.

Jason: I'll tighten security.

Sonny: Just be ready for anything.

Trevor: Alexis. It's good to see you up and about after your operation, you're healthy.

Alexis: By the way, Ric is doing fine.

Trevor: I know, I checked in.

Alexis: Did you really? You went to see him?

Trevor: You know, I helped save his life -- do you remember? -- But I'm a realist. I know that there's a great distance between him and me, and I don't think that Ric wants a father-and-son reunion at this late date -- have you asked him?

Alexis: That's a very convenient excuse. What I would like to know is why Anthony Zacchara was running loose on Spoon Island.

Trevor: The truth?

Alexis: Yes.

Trevor: He was being taken care of at his own home. Unfortunately, he escaped the security detail, and after that, I lost all control.

Alexis: From what I gather, he's under your control.

Trevor: Alexis, I regret all the terrible things that happened that night. But I have done everything in my power to ensure Molly's safety. So come on, lighten up, give me a break. I'd like to spend a little time with her during the holidays.

Alexis: No, I'm afraid that's not going to work for me.

Trevor: I love my granddaughter. And we had an agreement.

Alexis: From what I've observed about your relationship with your son, I don't think I can trust you, so I'm breaking that agreement. I'd like you to stay away from my daughter.

Trevor: You don't know how wrong you are.

Alexis: I disagree. Please stay away from Molly, or I'll be forced to get a restraining order -- which I'm sure is the last thing you want, since you're trying to hide your connections to the mob. Excuse me.

Nikolas: You're here.

Emily: Oh, Nikolas. Where else should I be?

Nikolas: Oh, God, I can still feel you -- like you're real.

Emily: Well, I know what I feel for you is real.

Nikolas: You know I can't tell anybody about this, this has to be a secret. If people find out, they'll -- they'll lock me up and you'll disappear from me.

Emily: Not if you want me there.

Nikolas: I wouldn't want you there, not like that.

Emily: What if we're not crazy? With everything that we don't understand about this world, what if it were real?

Spinelli: Stone Cold has returned from his rendezvous with the maternal one. Any joyful news to impart?

Jason: Lucky offered to continue as Jake's father. Elizabeth accepted and I agreed.

Spinelli: You can't be serious! Do you -- after all that, after the truth comes out like we hoped, and we're back to this?

Jason: We've been over this a hundred times, Spinelli.

Spinelli: No, I -- of that, I am well aware. Look, I'm honored that you share your confidence with me, but please honor me by heeding my advice? You and Elizabeth are in love. Right?

Jason: This -- this isn't about me, it's about Jake.

Spinelli: I know -- you want to keep him safe -- but come on. Mr. Corinthos, Sir has kept his kids safe for --

Jason: And don't even get into the whole "Sonny keeping his kids safe" speech, okay? Leticia was strangled. Those kids could be a target -- we don't know that -- and if Sonny could protect them, they could still end up damaged like Johnny Zacchara. Elizabeth doesn't want that for Jake, and neither do I.

Elizabeth: If someone had told me three years ago, "Elizabeth, this is what your life will look like in December, 2007," I would've told them they were crazy.

Robin: Tell me about it. If someone said that to me, I would've punched them in the nose.

[Elizabeth chuckles]

Kelly: You've got that special look of frustrated depression that only Patrick can give you.

Robin: It's true. Patrick asked if I wanted to get back together with him, and I told him no because I don't want to put off having a child.

Kelly: So have you picked a father yet?

Robin: Well, that's one little detail I haven't worked out yet.

Elizabeth: Only because in your heart of hearts, you really want Patrick to be the father.

Robin: Of course I do. Pathetic, right?

Elizabeth: You love him.

Robin: Yes, but I keep banging my head against the wall over and over. Will someone please stop me before I fall unconscious?

Kelly: Page Lainey.

Robin: Uh-oh. I need a shrink?

Kelly: No, I think we need a girls' night out. If Emily were here, I'd page her, too.

Elizabeth: Well, we will raise a glass in her honor.

Robin: Definitely.

Kelly: And stop complaining about our lives.

Robin: Yes, and start doing something about living them.

Leyla: Go ahead and ask.

Nadine: Ask what?

Leyla: Come on, you saw me blow up at Patrick, you're probably curious as to why.

Nadine: It's pretty obvious.

Leyla: Hmm -- enlighten me.

Nadine: Well, everyone at the hospital -- even a newbie like myself -- knows about the on-again, off-again saga of Patrick and Robin. Clearly, they're off again. He tried to ask her back, she said no. He turned to his backup girl, but you weren't having any of it.

Leyla: See, but the problem is I knew from the start that Patrick was incapable of commitment. But that was part of the attraction, because I didn't want a long-term relationship any more than he did.

Nadine: You sure about that?

Leyla: Hmm. Yeah. I am a busy girl. I don't have time for a serious relationship.

Nadine: Enter Patrick.

Leyla: Yeah. I mean, he's gorgeous, and he's fun and smart. And the sex --

Nadine: Yeah?

Leyla: Oh, we got together when we could, and it was great.

Nadine: But you fell in love.

Leyla: And that definitely wasn't part of the plan.

Nadine: So the moral of the story is --

Leyla: Yeah?

Nadine: Don't take a bullet for any man.

[Nadine laughs]

Leyla: Cheers to that.

Nadine: Right.

Leyla: Oh, yeah -- excuse me?

Kate: That's Philippa's direct line -- she'll straighten out the problem in no time. Oh, no, trust me, Giselle will be both humiliated and forever in your debt. Oh, Clarice, I'm glad to do it. I know, I shouldn't take so much joy in the fact that my replacement is in so completely over her head, but trust me, you just made my day.

Sonny: How about a little R&R?

Kate: Get out of my house.

Leyla: I love Patrick, so shoot me -- oh, wait, somebody already did.

Nadine: You want to slow down a little on the vodka?

Leyla: Not particularly. I know he doesn't love me. I know that. That's a relief, because falling in love with Patrick –

Both: Is not part of the plan.

Leyla: I don't need a man anyway, especially one who treats me as second-best.

Nadine: Right.

Leyla: Yeah.

Nadine: Good, this is good. Anger is good.

Leyla: Yeah, and when I am ready for a relationship, it's -- I'm going to do a whole lot better than Dr. Patrick Drake -- brilliant, smart neurosurgeon.

Nadine: No, you don't need a doctor; you're going to be one.

Leyla: Yeah.

Nadine: Yeah.

Leyla: Yeah. Yeah, and I'm going to use the money that I make as a nurse to get me through medical school, and then I'm going to build myself a career that rivals that of the great Dr. Drake. And I'm going to rebuild the lives of my parents, who lost everything to come here, with nothing more than the clothes on their backs -- and a matching set of luggage.

Nadine: So Patrick Drake can stuff it.

Leyla: Yeah. Yeah, I'm glad he's out my life. Because falling in love with Patrick is definitely not part of the plan.

Nikolas: I want nothing more than for you to be real. But I know you can't be, because I saw you. I watched them take you away from me, and I'm the only one who can see you.

Emily: Nikolas, when was your last blackout?

Nikolas: I don't know, I haven't had one -- I don't understand -- they stopped.

Emily: You're going to see Dr. Lipman, okay? He's going to help you figure this out.

Nikolas: And what -- what am I supposed to say to him? That my happiest moments are with the woman I love, who happens to be dead?

Emily: Your doctor has to know all of the facts, okay? And with my limited medical experience, I would advise you to tell him everything, but as the woman you love, Nikolas, who loves you back, I don't want you to be declared insane because of me.

Nikolas: God. Being with you right now, it feels so natural, real.

Emily: I know, Nikolas. I know. For me, too. Nikolas, if I told you that I love you more than life itself, would that mean anything?

Nikolas: It'd mean everything. And whatever -- whatever this is, whatever -- whatever you are, I don't care, I just don't want you to go away. And if you did, I really would go insane.

Sam: Hi.

Alexis: Hi.

Sam: Come in, please. Well, are you 100% yet?

Alexis: I'm not focusing too much on the way I feel because all I can think about is Emily.

Sam: Yeah, I know. Feel so badly for Nikolas.

[Alexis sighs]

Alexis: I went to see him at Wyndemere and I'm really worried about him.

Sam: Yeah, I went to see him, too, and -- um -- he seemed really calm.

Alexis: He seems like he's in shock, and -- and that's what I'm worried about -- is that when the reality sets in, these fits and rages that he's having -- they're going to get worse than they were before.

Sam: Yeah, look, I don't know if you're quite aware of this, but Nikolas had a blackout the night of the ball, and he's thinking that he could be responsible for Emily's death.

Alexis: He told you that?

Sam: Well, a -- a police detective had just been at Wyndemere, and they found Nikolas' blood on a mask next to Emily's dead body.

Alexis: No, no, I don't believe that.

Sam: Yeah, I know -- I don't, either -- but Nikolas has to blame somebody, so he's going to blame himself.

Alexis: This is why he -- he really has to keep pursuing the treatment, and -- and all of us have to encourage him so that he doesn't give in to his despair. And -- and the holidays are coming up, they're going to make everything worse for him. He's going to have all these memories of Emily and Spencer, and I -- all I can think to do is -- is invite him to my place for Christmas. So I'm going to do that, and I hope that you're going to be able to come, too.

Sam: Yeah, I'm -- of cour-- I hope I can -- I can make it. I just -- I -- I don't know if I'll be able to.

Alexis: Oh -- you have a better offer than spending Christmas with your family?

Jason: The work I do for Sonny is all I know. It's too late for me to get out of the organization, but I can choose not to inflict it on Jake.

Spinelli: Then Stone Cold's choice is sadly made.

Jason: You know what the problem is? I never thought about the future, I never thought about what I'd have to give up.

Spinelli: I wish I could convince you to claim your son and build a future with Elizabeth. But I admit your reasoning does have a certain irrefutable logic.

Jason: I -- I chose this life. You don't have to choose this life, Spinelli. Think about other options while you can, because the longer you stay in, the harder it is to get out.

Kate: I set very clear boundaries, and you're completely disregarding them.

Sonny: No, what happened is that I figured that you might be tired from community service, so I came -- I came and got you some shrimp --

Kate: Don't, don't -- don't even try to charm your way, okay?

Sonny: I'm not trying --

Kate: No, you came into my home, without my permission, after I asked you to stay away.

Sonny: You know how much I love you, right?

[Sonny laughs]

Kate: Wow! You are not used to people saying no to you.

Sonny: No, I know that you're upset because I -- I, you know, installed the new security system, but it's not a big deal.

Kate: Right, I'm upset about the system, the guards, the boats patrolling the lakeshore, the men sweeping my car for explosives -- it's ridiculous, Sonny.

Sonny: It's for your protection.

Kate: You refuse to respect my wishes.

Sonny: Because I want to keep you safe. Is there something wrong with wanting to keep you safe?

[Sonny chuckles]

Sonny: Come on. What?

Kate: You can't come in here, all right, and change my mind with some food and some charm and that dimpled smile of yours. You can't do it, don’t.

Sonny: Wait, wait --

Kate: Sonny --

Sonny: No, no, I understand, but you need to -- come here.

Trevor: The guards told me that you had a meeting with Sonny. Why'd you do that before you checked with me?

Johnny: I don't need your permission to take a meeting.

Trevor: Sonny Corinthos needs to be handled with extreme care.

Johnny: I can see why you feel that way.

Trevor: What did he say?

Johnny: Sonny offered to bankroll me if I was willing to get out of here. He said you'd be left twisting in the wind.

Trevor: But you're still here.

Johnny: I will tell you exactly what I told him. My father left the business to me and I intend to run it.

Sonny: Wait, wait, wait, wait --

Kate: Stop it!

Sonny: Just one more --

Kate: Stop trying to distract me.

Sonny: All right -- wait till you taste my rosemary chicken.

Kate: Okay, I get it, Sonny. I get it -- you're every woman's dream, right? You're strong, you're sexy, you can cook, but you're also every woman's nightmare. You're domineering, you're stubborn, everything always has to be your way.

Sonny: Three women were strangled, two died, and they were all connected to me.

Kate: I realize that, Sonny --

Sonny: And I know I say this a lot, but I'm going to say it again. My enemies come to get me, okay, through the people who are close to me -- that's a reality that I have to live with the rest of my life. I will not leave you unprotected, Kate.

Kate: Well, then I guess I'll have to roast my own chicken.

Sonny: Who's stubborn now?

Kate: You found your way in, you can find your way out.

Sonny: Well --

Kate: Excuse me.

Sonny: Well, all right.

Sonny: All right.

Spinelli: Stone Cold's friendship is an honor and a privilege for the Jackal. I mean, you accept me as the unique individual that I am -- very much like Mr. Corinthos, Sir trusts you -- and, I mean, although my work is of a less physical nature, I think I've been of some use, yes?

Jason: Yeah, absolutely. But you're a genius, you could work wherever you want to work, you don't have to work here.

Spinelli: Yeah, but working for Stone Cold is -- has been both rewarding and inspiring. I mean, some of the things I've learned -- I could've never had access to them elsewhere.

[Knock on door]

Spinelli: Yeah -- um -- the Jackal's headed to Kelly’s for some sustenance. I'll leave you to your visitor. Detective Spencer.

Lucky: I need to speak to you -- alone.

Spinelli: Impeccable timing.

Jason: What do you want?

Lucky: I agreed to continue to be Jake's father, only on one condition -- stay away from Elizabeth and Jake.

Sam: You will see a lot -- a lot of me over the holidays. I want to spend so much time with the girls -- I want to come over, I want to trim the tree, I want to sing Christmas carols with them -- but I just -- I may have to leave Christmas Eve open.

Alexis: You have a date?

Sam: Well, I mean, not in the way that you think. Okay, look, I ran into Lucky --

Alexis: Oh --

Sam: And he's been through a really tough time, and --

Alexis: So have you, and you're far from being objective about this.

Sam: Yes, I know, and I know what you're thinking right now.

Alexis: Do you think maybe at least part of your reason for wanting to spend Christmas Eve with Lucky is so that you can get back at Elizabeth and Jason? Because, honestly, if that's your motivation, you're the one that's going to end up being hurt.

Sam: Haven't you ever had to go through a holiday season where you had just broken up with someone that you love and you feel really alone, and everywhere you look around you, there are people happy and in love, and it makes you feel only worse? That's exactly how Lucky is feeling right now.

Alexis: Lucky has family.

Sam: True, but I am his friend. I am the only friend that he has to confide in right now. So if Lucky needs the company, I will spend Christmas Eve with him and his boys.

[Lainey laughs]

Kelly: Yeah!

Robin: Okay, what kind of woman stands on a table, takes her clothes off, while men are shouting come-ons?

Elizabeth: A woman desperately seeking approval?

Kelly: A woman with a hot body?

[Lainey snickers]

Lainey: You.

Elizabeth: Oh!

Kelly: Remember, I am behaving.

Lainey: Well, let's see what's going on in there.

Robin: Yes -- behavior is essential this evening.

Lainey: Come on, ladies.

[Man whistles]

[Music plays]



>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Scott: Hey, I want to talk to you about your future.

Leyla: Come join me.

Robin: Oh, my God.

Lainey: Leyla --

Lucky: I want you to tell me you're going to stay away from Jake -- for good.
