Epiphany: Dr. Quartermaine?
Regina: His pressure's going to bottom out.
Epiphany: Dr. Quartermaine, this patient is bleeding out.
Monica: Uh, I -- I canít.
Nadine: This artery needs to be clamped now.
Epiphany: Do it!
Andy: We're losing him.
Epiphany: Not if I can help it. Go and get a surgeon in here now!
Luke: Uh -- anybody here?
Skye: Welcome home.
Luke: Oh, this ain't home. This is just a place I crashed for a while.
Skye: Well, I suggest you find a way to make it your own.
Skye: You're going to be here quite a while.
Luke: Hmm. I love it when you get all aggressive and dominant. See, I was right the first time -- this is heaven.
Skye: Oh. You'll be changing that tune soon enough.
Luke: You're just teasing me, you hot little minx. Huh. There's no way this could turn into hell.
Skye: And three, two, one --
Girl: Stop it!
Boy: Give it to me!
Girl: No, you rat-faced brat! It's mine! No, stop it!
Boy: Give it to me!
Girl: No! Get off of it! It's mine! I'm telling!
Lulu: Hi, Dad.
Lulu: Honey, come on downstairs. You are right on time as usual.
Girl: Get off of me!
Luke: On time for what?
Lulu: You are so funny. Isn't he a hoot?
Girl: Now look what you've done. Do you see what he's done?
Skye: Better strap in nice and tight. This ride's just pulling out.
Sonny: As you know, we've been holding off on the shipments until we get a better handle on the Zaccharas. Now that he's been committed, it's business as usual, but I want you to supervise everything. If you see anything that doesn't seem right, you let me know.
Max: You got it, boss.
Sonny: That's a nice tie.
[Knock on door]
Sonny: Are you -- are you lost?
Kate: Literally or figuratively?
Sonny: Well, I'm just kind of surprised to see you because I didn't, you know -- I didn't think I'd see you for a little while at least.
Kate: We didn't finish our conversation. Mind if I come in?
Trevor: Do you really think that you can take the crown prince out of the Zacchara organization and send your silly little lawyer to spring him out of the joint so that he feels beholden you take from us, we take back, and I thought you'd learned that lesson with the tragic death of your sister. Now, you do something like that again -- do you need to lose someone else very close to you in order for you to know who you're up against? Hey!
Spinelli: No, no! Stone Cold, don't shoot!
Lulu: Uh --
Lulu: No, I'm sorry. I'm -- I didn't mean the meltdown thing.
Logan: It's okay. Don't apologize, all right? I'm glad I was here. And you get to be scared, okay? Your father's about to have major surgery.
Lulu: I'm -- I'm just so -- my mind is reeling. I just -- I can't reconcile the dad that I know with the man that was in that bed. He was just -- so helpless. And, you know, when I looked at him, it just hit me like a freight train. My dad could actually die.
Logan: I know.
Lulu: And -- and I mean, I know everyone dies eventually. It's just, it's --
Logan: You just don't want to lose your father right now.
Lulu: Yeah, that and I -- I don't want to see my dad deal with coming out of the hospital less than he was when he went in. I swear if my dad makes it out of this hospital healthy and whole, I will never give him any grief about taking off ever again.
Logan: Now I'm sure your father's going to be just fine. Okay? But no matter what happens, I promise you you don't ever have to be alone.
Epiphany: Dr. Quartermaine, Dr. Julian is here to take over. Please step back and give him access to the patient.
Leo: Okay, people, speed is of the essence here, okay? Got to get a suture needle loaded and ready, Regina, and I need blood now. We have no room for error -- this patient is slipping away.
Logan: Be right back, guys.
Girl: Come on, it's mine! Give it to me!
Boy: It's mine!
Lulu: Oh, all right. All right, you two. No, no, no, no, no, no. Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.
Boy: No, give it to me!
Lulu: You two stop fighting -- come on. Hey, you don't want to scare Grandpa Luke away!
Logan: Here you go, Gramps. Catch this.
Luke: My little cupcake married to this pile of substandard genetics.
Skye: 10 years and counting.
Girl: Give it to me.
Lulu: Stop fighting.
Girl: I don't care -- it's mine!
Lulu: Let go of the bear.
Skye: Meet the progeny. That little trial is Baldwin, 9 months old -- sensitive digestive tract. That's little Scotty, 6 -- sensitive tummy. And the oldest there -- well, that's little Laura. She's pretty much not sensitive to anything at all. And the dog -- his name's Whizzer. The name is self-explanatory.
Logan: Huh. Come on, tasty cake. We're going to be late.
Lulu: Here you go.
Lulu: Thank you.
Luke: Wait -- wait a minute. Where are you -- where are you going?
Lulu: Lamaze class.
Luke: To Lamaze class? But what -- what about these kids?
Lulu: You are so funny.
Luke: Don't say that anymore.
Logan: Mr. Spencer, come on. We'll be back at midnight, all right?
Luke: Midnight? That's a long way away. Wait, what -- how long does a birthing class take?
Logan: Birthing class -- come on. You know it's date night, right?
Luke: Oh, no. Oh, God, no. Make it stop.
Lulu: Well, have fun.
Logan: I know we will -- you know what I mean?
Laura: Mommy loves me more!
Scotty: Does not!
Laura: Does, too!
Scotty: Does not!
Laura: Does, too!
Luke: Where's Grandpa Scott?
Skye: He's usually too busy for kid duty.
Luke: "Too busy"? Doing what?
[Disco music plays]
Luke: Is it Halloween?
Skye: Just a normal day.
Lesley: Do not wait up for me.
Luke: No, no, no, no -- wait. Lesley, you can't leave.
Lesley: Why ever not?
Luke: Well, you got to take these ankle-biting rugrats off my hands.
Lesley: Sorry -- hot date.
Luke: Why are you dressed like that?
Lesley: You have got to pay more attention to the world outside of your own head. Disco is back!
Lesley: Got to hustle -- "hustle." I don't know how I come up with this stuff.
Luke: No! No, no, this -- this is too much. This is -- this is just too much. You -- you got to wave your magic things and -- and get me out of here. Put me in the desert or in Antarctica, anywhere -- just get me the hell out of here.
Skye: You really are so funny.
Luke: Oh, please stop saying that.
Skye: No, you are. You're so cute to actually think you have a say in any of this.
Luke: Watch me!
Skye: Ah, ah -- oh. I'd reconsider if I were you. It's awfully hot out there.
Luke: Ah! Ah!
Sonny: Well, you know, I thought there was nothing left to say. I mean, you said that I -- I scared you and I -- that's the last thing I want to do, so I figured the -- the best response a gentleman could make was walk away.
Kate: Well, I'm sure that's very respectful and kind of you and probably what you thought that I needed, but -- the truth is the second you left, all I wanted was to see you again. Sonny, that is what scares me -- the danger to my so far very well-protected heart. I don't -- I don't like it, and I don't know how to fight it and I'm afraid that I'm starting to need you.
Spinelli: The Jackal sincerely believes that ending the life of Senior Sith Lord Lansing would be most ill--
Jason: Spinelli, I want you to leave right now!
Spinelli: Okay, just think of the consequences, okay? Not that he doesn't deserve stone cold justice, as it were, but come on -- maybe he has guards outside or maybe some fair and lovely innocent bystander witnessed him entering the premises. The finger of guilt would point directly at you and you could be arrested and dare I say, this time convicted of murder.
Trevor: You are so right.
Spinelli: Shut up!
Jason: Get out.
Trevor: And you can tell your boss that he just started a conflagration -- a war.
Scott: Tracy, I'm trying to get an update on Luke's condition but nobody's talking.
Tracy: As if you have the right to ask, as if you even have a right to be here.
Bobbie: Tracy, relax. I called Scott, and he's here to help.
Tracy: Are you kidding? The only reason he is here is to foist his son on Lulu.
Skye: Logan can offer Lulu a little comfort during this horrible time -- I really don't see what the problem is.
Tracy: You know what? You're not family, either, so keep your unwanted opinions to yourself!
Bobbie: Okay, that's enough! Now, I realize that you are terrified, but you do not have a monopoly on fear and love where Luke is concerned.
Tracy: No, of course not. Never mind that I'm the only one that did anything to save Luke's life. I was the one that convinced him to have the surgery. If it was left up to the lot of you, he'd be dead!
Lucky: That's not fair, Tracy.
Monica: I am so sorry.
Luke: Oh, my God. What does your mother feed you -- mud pies?
Scotty: I'm hungry.
Laura: No one cares!
Luke: Try to be a little nicer to your brother.
Laura: I don't have to. He's not my real brother anyway. We bought you at the mall.
Scotty: I hate you.
Luke: Harsh, but effective. Are you proud of yourself?
Laura: Just weeding out the competition.
Luke: Go see what happened.
Laura: Being with you stinks!
Luke: Yeah? Well, I feel the same way you
Lucky: Oh -- diaper duty again?
Luke: Oh, I gave you life. You owe me. Here -- take over.
Lucky: Oh, no, I canít. I'm already covering for you. I took over your shift -- remember?
Luke: Covering? What -- the shift?
Lucky: At the station.
Luke: Police station?
Skye: You're a member of the PCPD now. You and Lucky are partners.
Luke: I'm -- I'm --
Skye: On the side of law and order forever.
Mac: Hey, how you doing, you old duffer? Ready to take on a few holes?
Skye: You and the police commissioner are golfing buddies now.
Luke: Kill me.
Skye: Already done.
Luke: It's night out there. We can't -- we can't golf at night.
Mac: What are you talking about? There's always plenty of light at big putts miniature golf. Oh, unless you got the little cuties. You know, then we could always just meet up for our traditional mid-week iced tea tomorrow.
Skye: He means real iced tea, not long island.
Mac: Hey, by the way, great job on the candy bar bandit case. You know, you and Lucky just might be what this town needs to clean it up. All right, same time -- Kellyís.
Lucky: You know, I better get back to work. You might want to think about changing that Baldwin -- sensitive digestive tract.
Luke: Oh. I deserve this? What did I ever do that was so horrible?
Mike: Uh -- excuse me. Special delivery for Maxie.
Maxie: You got me flowers?
Coop: Well, you kind of had a bad day.
Maxie: You mean that part about being strangled by a serial killer? Not a big deal.
Coop: I'm sorry I wasn't there to protect you.
Maxie: Well, you're here now. That's what matters. So, you pulled this off when you snuck out earlier?
Coop: Yeah, I wanted to surprise you but your sister almost caught me.
Georgie: Huh. Well, I was coming back from the car and I saw Coop all secretive on his phone and staring at you through the window. I could definitely tell something was up.
Coop: No getting around you.
Georgie: That's why I'm the smart one.
Maxie: Well, since you both are here, I got a text message.
Coop: "C U soon"?
Georgie: You need to call Mac.
Maxie: I will.
Georgie: No, Maxie, seriously. You need to call him now. You don't want to mess around with this -- what if this guy is still out there? What if he were just to grab you on the street?
Coop: I think it's a little counterproductive to scare Maxie any more than she already is.
Maxie: Well, I'm not half as afraid when I'm with you.
Kate: I'll admit, you've made my life a lot more complicated than it used to be.
Sonny: That's not an answer. I'll tell you what -- I'll go first. That way, you can build up your courage.
Sonny: I went through a rough patch a while ago. Um -- but with help -- you know, therapy, a little medication, I -- I clawed my way out of it. Pretty dark, deep hole. Everything was good. I had money, power, three fantastic kids, a reasonable relationship with an ex-wife. I didn't think anything was missing. But -- what happened is someone one night walked into my office and showed me different. This person, you know, gave me a spark, I started to feel alive. You can't put a price on that. And you can't let the fear of the unknown stop you cold, because at the end of the day, you don't know what's going to happen tomorrow. So, what -- what I'm trying to say is, why let yourself deprive you of something good?
Kate: Oh. Hmm. Mm-hmm.
Kate: You make a convincing argument. The same goes for me. You make me happy, you make me spark. And you've inspired a passion that no man has ever come close to.
Mr. Vaughn: Hey, boss.
Trevor: Where's Johnny?
Mr. Vaughn: Not home yet. Why are you so angry?
Trevor: Jason Morgan just sent the Corinthos lawyer down to the joint and sprung the kid. Now, that was a blatant move to obligate the boy to them and to embarrass me, so tit for tat, huh? You strike the Corinthos organization tonight.
Mr. Vaughn: Shouldn't Johnny make that decision?
Trevor: I just made it for him.
Jason: I'll be on the pier to meet you when the shipment comes in. All right.
Spinelli: Look, I hope preventing you from offing Darth Lansing hasn't created more trouble. I -- I was just trying to protect you from an act with dire consequences.
Jason: You did the right thing. I would never want to make you an accessory.
Spinelli: Stone Cold, I -- I wasn't thinking of myself. I -- I was just thinking of -- I was only thinking of you as a -- a friend and a brother, and not to be embarrassingly maudlin, but that's how I consider you.
Jason: Well, you're family to me, too, Spinelli.
[Knock on door]
Spinelli: The Jackal will absent himself to his regrettably pink room and contemplate the acceptance of color.
Johnny: Your lawyer's good, but why'd you send her? And what are you expecting in return?
Lulu: What happened?
Lucky: We were just about to find out. Monica?
Monica: I don't know.
Tracy: What do you mean, you don't know, Monica? You're the surgeon. You're the one who insisted on having that surgery tonight. You have to know.
Skye: Tracy, you aren't helping. Let Monica speak.
Tracy: I would love to hear her speak, but so far she seems incapable!
Bobbie: Monica, just tell us, please. Is Luke --
Monica: Dr. Julian is -- is trying to repair the damage.
Tracy: What damage, Monica?
Monica: You were right, Tracy. I never should've ever performed surgery.
Luke: Whoa -- oh!
Luke: Good, now stay asleep, you little pile of -- oh.
Laura: Uh-huh. Uh-huh. Yeah.
Luke: Who's on the phone?
Laura: My boyfriend?
Luke: Call back in a decade. You're 10 -- no boyfriends!
Laura: You're boring! I want my other grandpa!
Luke: Oh, I suppose that would be the "too busy to change a diaper" grandpa lowlife!
Laura: At least he's not an old fart!
Luke: I'm an old fart? What's so great about this great-grandpa Baldwin?
Skye: Scotty's the head of an international underground organization.
Luke: Not just in Port Charles?
Skye: Oh, his interests are vast and varied.
Luke: That was supposed to be my life.
Skye: He has hotels and casinos in Rio, Monte Carlo, Marrakech. Oh, if it's happening, Scottyís got a hand in it.
Luke: Yeah? Well, it's about time he had his hand in a dirty diaper. Two of the varmints are in the kitchen. The one with the sensitive digestive system and the dog are asleep in the crib! I'm going out for a drink!
Scott: No, no, no can do, Spencer. Me and my chicky are boarding my private yacht headed to the opening of my new casino on cat island in the Bahamas!
Tracy: What's taking so long, lover man?
Monica: It was very arrogant of me to think that I could use my emotional detachment that I had developed as a doctor over the years to just push away Emilyís death, to just block it out and go on and do what I knew I did best, and that was saving lives.
Tracy: Monica, what about Luke?
Monica: I froze. I saw Emilyís face everywhere and I lost focus. And then I thought I was losing him.
Lulu: But when you left the operating room, my dad was still alive, right?
Monica: Yes. Dr. Julian is doing everything he can. I just hope to God he makes it.
Luke: Excuse me.
Luke: What did you call him?
Tracy: What's it to you?
Luke: You're my wife, wife.
Skye: She was your wife. You took off one too many times and Tracy left you.
Tracy: I was just a pit stop. You were never committed to me. I was a cash withdrawal on your way to wherever.
Luke: That's -- that's not true.
Scott: Speaking of cash -- your alimony payment is late, Spencer.
Luke: Alimo-- alimony? My -- you don't need my money! You're filthy, disgusting rich!
Tracy: My lover man likes a little extra mad money. It makes him happy. Sweetheart?
Tracy: The jet is waiting.
Tracy: I'll be in the car --
Tracy: Getting ready.
Scott: Ah! Oh, what a great girl she is. But I don't have to tell you that, do I? Do you have a message for Holly?
Scott: Yes, yes. She's going to be at the opening of my casino, and then her and I are going to slip off to Nassau for a little fun.
Luke: You're cheating on Tracy? Finally, something that makes sense.
Scott: There's no cheating. Tracy -- she loves to share me. I got a great life, Spencer! Great! See you around.
Johnny: If you sent your lawyer to help me hoping I would agree to enter some kind of truce, I can't make any guarantees.
Jason: I don't think you're guilty. So I don't want the cops wasting time on you when they can be out there looking for whoever really killed my sister. As far as business, you owe me nothing. Don't mistake kindness for weakness. If I get the order to take you out, you're out.
Kate: Hmm, being here in your arms, it feels like the rest of the world doesn't really matter.
Sonny: Well, there -- you know, the real world is out there, it's rough, but you know -- well, we got to get beyond arguing about security systems and, you know, my wall oversteps your property line.
Sonny: Can we just -- can we go upstairs? And then I want -- I want you to wake up in my arms.
Kate: Hmm. Hmm, that sounds nice.
Kate: I canít.
Sonny: What do you mean, you can't? It's just right there.
Kate: Sonny --
Kate: I love you. I love what we have. I love what we can have. But I also do care about whose security system is guarding me, and a few inches, because they're mine, because it's about boundaries, and until you can show me that you can respect how I feel -- by removing your security, by setting the wall back -- I can't -- I can't spend the night.
Sonny: But that's like blackmail.
Kate: Mm-hmm, yeah. Didn't you say it was a rough world out there?
Georgie: Thank you for having me over. I realize that it's late.
Spinelli: Well, the Jackal is at your disposal, but first, may I ask -- are you all right?
Georgie: A little shaky.
Spinelli: Yeah, I -- I know you walked in on -- on the maniacal one trying to kill your sister.
Georgie: That -- it was awful. But I'm really, really glad that I did, because Maxie could have been dead.
Spinelli: Yeah, but you could have been hurt by this phantom of death. I'm sorry, I'm just -- I'm glad you're in one piece. Um -- I assume you have need of my cyber skills?
Georgie: Um -- yes, but it's top secret.
Spinelli: Well, my discretion is assured.
Georgie: Okay. I got a text message.
Spinelli: "Seen your sis"?
Georgie: Can you trace it?
Sonny: I just spoke to Diane. Uh -- you got Johnny Zacchara back on the street?
Jason: I want whoever really killed Emily to pay, that's what I want.
Sonny: What makes you so sure it's not Johnny?
Jason: I just got a feeling.
Sonny: You got a feeling? I'm not as convinced, but at least he owes us one.
Jason: Whew. Trevor showed up at my apartment, making threats about how somebody else I cared about would die in retaliation for going over his head, and I -- I lost it.
Sonny: Tell me you wasted that son of a bitch.
Trevor: Hold on, I'll call you back. Corinthos' silly lawyer had you out on the street hours ago. Where you been?
Johnny: I don't answer to you.
Trevor: Hmm. You know, you were a fool to accept her help. Her interests are in Sonny, not you.
Johnny: You have the bad history with Sonny, not me.
Trevor: Oh -- when you were released from that station and walked into the street, they could have shot you dead right there.
Johnny: If you're so concerned about my safety, you should have been there instead of Corinthos' lawyer. Where were you?
Trevor: What was your big rush to get out?
Lesley: We are all sympathetic for your loss. And we're thankful to you for trying to help Luke.
Bobbie: I was there when you got the results of Luke's last tests. He had to have the surgery immediately. You were courageous to take it on.
Monica: No. No, I was just burying my pain at work, at the expense of a patient. You were right, Tracy. I never should have done that.
Tracy: Don't you talk to me.
Lucky: Nobody said my dad was dead.
Tracy: Oh --
Lulu: When will we know something?
Monica: They're doing everything they can to save him, but I -- I'm not going to mislead you. When Dr. Julian got in there, he was slipping away.
Skye: Looks like you tired them out.
Luke: I'm dead, Blaze. I mean, I'm really dead. You got to do something.
Skye: Out of my hands.
Luke: Well, then -- then I need fortification.
Luke: Ah. There is a God. Ah. Hmm. Hey, you got a light? Where's the matches? Where's the matches? Where -- no, don't tell me I can't get a light in hell!
Luke: Oh. You're an angel. Oh, wait a minute. Oh, I get it. None of them work, right?
Luke: Ah. Oh, wait. What's the deal here? Dribble glass? I don't care. I'll lick the sides. Hell, I'll suck it out of the rug. Whoa. Oh, no. Oh, you have got to be joking!
Skye: No, we don't joke around here.
Luke: All this because I chose the wrong surgeon.
Skye: You were on that path long before you had a heart attack. The question is, if you could do it all over again -- the carousing, the boozing, the blackmail, the larceny --
Luke: Oh, rub it in. Remind me of the good old days.
Skye: If you knew then what you know now, would you live your life any differently?
Luke: Absolutely not. My life was heaven. What's the matter? Wrong answer? Blaze? Blaze, where are you going? No! Hey! Wait, you can't leave me! Hey, you're my guide! Blaze! What am I supposed to do now?
Spinelli: This message is just like the others -- piggybacked on to an implausible suspect's phone.
Spinelli: A most unfunny choice. Your parental unit, Commissioner Scorpio himself.
Georgie: Okay, what -- what if we do this differently? Can we trace the number backwards?
Spinelli: I -- well, yeah. I mean, I can try, but do you have the numerical sequence of origin?
Spinelli: Well -- um -- well, who's the current suspect?
Georgie: Cooper Barrett. He was the first guy Carly suspected in Leticiaís murder, and her instincts may have been right. He has no real alibi for most of the black-and-white ball, and he fits the description of the guy that Johnny and I both caught glimpses of. And seriously, what do we really know about this guy? He was a soldier that fought in Iraq and showed up out of nowhere. And guess what? Tonight, I was at Kellyís, and he was looking through the window at Maxie, and guess what he was doing.
[Part of transcript missing]
Maxie: But the fear of dying was never as real as when the psycho was strangling me. All I could think was that I'm not ready. I want more time to spend with the people who matter to me, like you. I really don't want to be alone tonight.
Coop: Good. Because I was going to ask you to stay with me.
Leo: We can't do a bypass on this man's heart. He doesn't have one.
Luke: I heard that.
Leo: I'm afraid there's nothing more we can do for Mr. Spencer. Let's close.
Skye: Is this really how you want it to end?
[Skye's voice echoes]
Skye: Welcome back.
Luke: Blaze? You mean -- I'm not --
Tracy: You're still with us. How are you feeling?
Luke: Huh. Like I've been to hell and back.
Lulu: I'm so relieved my dad's okay. I was so scared.
Logan: It's good to see you smile again.
Lulu: Yeah, I really want to see him.
Logan: Well, you go do what you want to do, but you probably ought to let him rest, you know?
Lulu: Yeah, yeah, you're probably right. Tracy is probably all over him. Well, tonight was a horrible night, but it would have been so much worse without you.
Logan: Hey, I wouldn't be anywhere else. Come here.
Trevor: You know, had I run down there to the PCPD too quickly, they would have thought that you had something to hide.
Johnny: Did my father actually buy this crap from you? Because I donít.
Trevor: Even when your father was young and I knew him, he was never as green as you.
Johnny: I'm in charge now, whether you like it or not. We're entering into a truce with Corinthos.
Trevor: I'm really sorry to bust your bubble, boy. It's too late. Congratulations. You just took your first defensive move.
Jason: Spinelli was there. I couldn't -- I couldn't let him get involved.
Sonny: You know we're going to pay for that.
Jason: Yeah. I got to go to the pier to meet the --
Max: There is no shipment.
Sonny: What happened, Max?
Max: We got hit a mile offshore. The productís gone.
Jason: Were -- were you shot?
Max: No, no, I was just grazed. I'm okay. Two of our guys are dead, one's critical. These guys came out of nowhere.
Sonny: The Zaccharas just declared war.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Georgie: How much do you really know about him? I mean, really?
Johnny: There is no way you are going to force me into a mob war!
Sonny: The Zaccharas know how we deal with things.
Jason: I'll take care of it.
