["Carol of the Bells" plays]
Georgie: Spinelli, you look exhausted. Do you -- coffee?
Spinelli: Oh, hey. Um, the Jackal was up all night pondering your suspicions about the clean-cut cadet.
Georgie: Okay, what do you think?
Spinelli: Well, I mean, while his behavior has been strange, I -- I don't know. I still don't see how he could be noble Emily and loyal Leticia's killer.
Georgie: Okay, consider this -- he matches the description of the man running out of my house after choking my sister, and yesterday he was standing outside that door basically stalking Maxie, sending a text message around the time she received hers.
Spinelli: Okay, well, what does the bad blond one think about all this?
Maxie: Oh --
Coop: Oh, I got it. Where does it go?
Maxie: Right there.
Maxie: Thank you.
Georgie: I haven't exactly told her.
Spinelli: Look, if -- if your -- if your suspicions are correct and Coop is actually the killer, you have to inform her before it's too late.
[Coop and Maxie giggle]
[Knock on door]
Sam: Yay, it is you! I missed you last night. I thought you were coming back after the hospital.
Lucky: Well, I had to go to work.
Sam: Well, how's your dad?
Lucky: It was touch and go there for a while, but he pulled through.
Sam: Ok, look, I know that your dad is sick, and it must be really bad seeing him like that, but he will be back to his old self in no time.
Lucky: It's not my dad that I'm worried about. Zacchara -- he made a move against Sonny and Jason last night. If they retaliate, you could be caught in the middle.
Trevor: Has there been any movement on the docks?
Mr. Vaughn: Not since last night. All shipments in and out of the Corinthos warehouse have been suspended while the police investigate the ambush.
Trevor: Well, it's only a matter of time before Sonny retaliates, so I tell you what we're going to do -- you call a meeting of the men, increase security around the estate, and you tell them if anybody comes within a mile of this place, you take them out. No questions -- kill them.
Johnny: There is no way in hell you are going to force me into a mob war!
Jason: I talked to all our guys working harbor last night. It happened just like Max said -- the boat was hit a mile offshore. The entire shipment was taken.
Sonny: I told Bernie to double security on the waterfront.
Jason: And he did -- he did, Sonny -- it wasn't enough. This ambush was well-planned. These guys never even saw it coming.
Sonny: Well, the Zaccharas know how we deal with things. They're going to be expecting us to hit back.
Jason: I'll take care of it.
Sonny: No, no, no, no. We do nothing.
["Carol of the Bells" plays]
Maxie: Morning. I thought you had today off.
Georgie: Kristi wasn't feeling well, so I covered her shift.
Maxie: Oh, well, that was really nice of you.
Georgie: I need the money.
Maxie: Well, it's not just that. You're always doing things to help people out and I really respect that about you.
Maxie: So, Spinelli, how's everything going with your grandmother? Is she still in Tennessee?
Spinelli: Why so curious about my granny's whereabouts?
Maxie: Just haven't heard you talk about her in a while. I wanted to make sure everything was okay.
Georgie: Okay, stop. What's going on?
Maxie: What do you mean?
Georgie: Complimenting me, checking up on Spinelli's grandmother? Why are you being so nice?
Maxie: Well, almost dying kind of forces you to put things into perspective, you know? I had to take a look at my life, I realized I wasn't such a great person, or sister, for that matter. If you hadn't walked in when you did, that guy would've killed me and I would've died with so many regrets and enemies, I wouldn't be surprised if nobody showed up at my funeral.
Coop: Hey, there is no point in talking about this, all right? You survived. Let's all try to forget that day ever happened.
Maxie: Yeah, right. I've been given a second chance and I would like to make the most of it, starting with having breakfast with you guys.
Spinelli: Uh -- look, well -- well, the Jackal would love to break bread, as it were. My cyber services are required elsewhere.
Georgie: Yeah, and you know, we're already down a waitress, so I'm going to have to take a rain check.
Maxie: Well, can't you guys make time now? I mean, it would really mean a lot to me if we could all be friends.
Lulu: I hope you're hungry.
Logan: What's this?
Lulu: Um -- waffles, a close approximation, anyway. When they get cold, it's like eating a sponge, so --
Logan: Oh -- come on in.
Lulu: My mom would make waffles every time my dad would take off to parts unknown.
Logan: Lulu, your -- your father's not going anywhere, you know? He's going to be fine. The doctors said the surgery went really well, so he -- he's going to be good.
Lulu: Yeah. When they wheeled him off to operate, I -- I went into his room to freak out alone. I mean, we're Spencers -- that's what we do. And then you came in.
Logan: Yeah, I didn't think it'd be good, you know, for you to be alone.
Lulu: I was just sitting there on his bed. I could smell his cologne still on the pillow and I just started thinking about who we are to each other, and all the good times that we've had, except we haven't had any.
Logan: Well, Lulu, you got a -- you got a different, you know, unique situation and it's not a bad thing. It's --
Lulu: It's ice fishing. That's -- that's what we have. I mean, when my dad's been gone for months living this whole other adventurous life -- jumping out of planes and chasing after whatever -- I don't even think it matters. It's just -- it's the chase. But to see him lying there on that bed hooked up to the monitors, completely helpless, it was -- huh. It's just -- it lt really good to be held and to be able to open up and --
Logan: I'm glad.
Lulu: I hate ice fishing.
Logan: Hey, hey. Hey, easy. Come here.
Logan: You're okay.
Lulu: I can't do this.
Sam: How could Zacchara have hijacked Sonny and Jason's shipment last night? I thought he was locked up in some facility for the criminally insane.
Lucky: Anthony didn't give the order. His son did. Apparently, Johnny -- he's taken over the family business.
Sam: Okay, and if Johnny is anything like his father, I'm sure he's going to want to go after all the people in Jason and Sonny's life just to get what he wants.
Lucky: Sam, I know you and Jason ended things months ago, but Johnny -- he could still use you against him. Maybe you should think about hiring another bodyguard.
Sam: No, I'll be fine.
Lucky: No, I would feel better knowing that you had somebody with you all the time.
Sam: Okay, well, then why don't you move in here with me?
Sonny: If we retaliate, we play right into Johnny's hands. He's already mouthed off, threatened to take me down, and I don't -- you know, this guy --
Jason: No, I -- I don't think that Johnny wants a war.
Sonny: He doesn't know what he wants -- that's the problem. The kid is a live wire and Trevor's right there to exploit it. Why do you think Trevor doesn't care if he stays locked up? He wants to piss Johnny off so much that he acts out, okay? That's what he wants to do.
Jason: Okay, do you think Johnny's the one who ordered the ambush?
Sonny: I mean, Johnny's got a lot to prove.
Jason: But you don't make a move like that and expect no -- no retaliation.
Sonny: Kid's not smart. And he's not experienced enough to avoid a war. If we make this happen, what we got to do is set Johnny up to fail.
Johnny: I give the orders around here, not Trevor. You don't touch anyone unless I tell you to.
Mr. Vaughn: Yes, Sir.
Johnny: Get out!
Trevor: John? With your father gone, Sonny thinks that it's business as usual. We sent him a clear-cut message that he doesn't control Port Charles anymore.
Johnny: This just wasn't about Sonny last night. You were trying to manipulate me and it stops now.
Trevor: John, don't get paranoid on me. We agreed to do this.
Johnny: We didn't agree to anything.
Trevor: Look. Until you learn how to conduct business the way your father did, we're going to run things together.
Johnny: This isn't just about business for you- it's personal. You took my hand in that raid last night to work your twisted vendetta against Sonny.
Trevor: Look, if we hadn't have acted, Sonny would have.
Johnny: I could've brokered a truce if you just would've stayed out of it.
Trevor: You could've brokered diddly. I offered Sonny a truce days ago, and he turned it down -- you know why? Because he wants to control the shipping lanes on the eastern seaboard. And if you get in his way, he's going to take you out, so we better get him first.
["The First Noel" plays]
Maxie: So, Spinelli, what are your plans for the holidays?
Spinelli: Oh -- well, the Jackal was intending to give his granny a tour of Graceland. But in light of noble Emily's passing, I -- I feel it's my duty as Stone Cold's most trusted and loyal friend to remain in residence during these hard times. Uh -- what are your holiday plans?
Maxie: Well, Coop and I were thinking about going skiing in Vermont.
Georgie: You canít. You know how -- how much the holidays mean to Mac.
Maxie: Well, Georgie, I'm pretty sure we would make it back in time for Christmas Eve.
Georgie: Yeah, but what -- what if you guys, you know, get snowed in and you can't make it back for Christmas at all? Mac would be devastated.
Coop: I've already checked -- I've already checked the weather report. They're not supposed to get any more snow until after Christmas.
Maxie: So I guess it's settled. You guys are more than welcome to come.
Spinelli: You know, actually, the Jackal is deathly allergic to ski wax.
Coop: That's too bad. Well, we'll have to go climbing in the spring.
Spinelli: You know, I've never understood how -- you know, how anyone would enjoy dangling off the side of a mountain secured solely by a, you know, cable that could snap at any time.
Coop: Well, those cords are stronger than they look. You'd be surprised at how well they work.
Spinelli: Well, excuse me. The Jackal has to attend to some things of a dire nature. Um -- the wise one would be remiss if she did not do the same. Enjoy the yuletide.
Coop: Well, I should get going, as well. I got roll call in 20 minutes. Hey, call me if you need anything?
Maxie: Okay. Have a good day. Well, that wasn't too painful.
Georgie: You're not going to Vermont with Coop, Maxie.
["It's Christmas Time Again" plays]
Maxie: Georgie, chill out. I told you we would be back in time for Christmas.
Georgie: It's not about Christmas and Mac, Maxie. I think Coop tried to kill you.
Singer: Well, it's Christmas time again
Logan: Look, I'm sorry. I should not have done that.
Lulu: Well, it -- it was just a kiss.
Logan: I know, but you were upset and I don't want you to think I was trying to take advantage of you.
Lulu: No, I don't, I donít. I -- I don't even know how I would've gotten through yesterday and waiting for my dad to come through surgery. That why I came over.
Logan: I know, Lulu, but you don't have to make me waffles like I'm some neighbor that shoveled your driveway.
Lulu: I wanted to thank you.
Logan: I know, but the fact that I was able to be there for you -- don't you know that was enough? I'm so grateful that I've been given a second chance with you after I nearly wrecked things before they even got started with us, you know, and after hearing you talk about your father, I think I know why.
Lulu: You ice fish?
Logan: Huh -- no. It's not typical. It's -- you know, it's not easy, Lulu. In fact, it's damn messy, but you don't listen to what anybody else says. You know, you don't care that people are warning you, saying, "That guy's dangerous," you know, "Just stay away from him." You make up your own mind, follow your own heart.
Lulu: I -- I should get back to Kellyís.
Sam: If you move in, I mean, you wouldn't have to wonder whether or not I was safe or not. I mean, we could actually be together all the time instead of just a couple of hours a week, and I'm sure it gets pretty lonely in that big house all by yourself.
Lucky: Why do you think I work the graveyard shift? You know, without Cameron and Jake there, it's just -- it's not the same. It's just too quiet, I --
Sam: Okay, then move in with me and we can be together all the time.
Lucky: Sam, as tempting as that sounds --
Sam: I -- look, I'm -- sorry. I'm sorry if I'm pushing you into something that you don't want to do. Tell me, I -- I will back off.
Lucky: I don't feel -- I don't feel you're pressuring me into anything.
Sam: Do you think I'm working you?
Lucky: No -- I just know how you feel about Elizabeth and that maybe you still want to get back at her.
Sam: No. Come on, Lucky, this has nothing to do with Elizabeth. Okay, fine -- it has, like, 99% nothing to do with Elizabeth. It may have started out as a way to get back at Elizabeth and Jason, but this has turned into a lot more -- I mean, at least for me it has.
Lucky: Me, too. I care about you, Sam --
Lucky: More than I thought I ever would.
Sam: Right, just not enough to move in.
Lucky: Sam, it's not --
Sam: No, it's fine. I get it. We've had a lot of fun, but that's about it.
Lucky: No. It's not that at all. I just lost my two boys. And I nearly lost my dad. Sam, I care out you more than I ever thought I would, and I appreciate things that I still have. And I don't want to do anything to mess that up.
Sam: Well, you couldnít.
Sam: Of course. What is it? Is it the hospital?
Lucky: No, I have to go pick up a suspect.
Trevor: John, this is commerce, I swear -- pure and simple. Port Charles has become the gateway to the northeastern corridor. And if we let Sonny and Jason control the waterfront, we're not going to be able to move product.
Johnny: I heard you gave the same speech to my father, about a day after Kate Howard moved to town and Sonny was helping her out. I'm not going to let you destroy everything my father built so you can get back at Sonny Corinthos for stealing your girlfriend.
Trevor: Your father built this organization, but I maintained it and I grew it for years. All that time, you didn't even want to know your father, and you didn't want to have anything to do with him! Now, I promised you that I'm going to teach you the ropes, but we got a war here.
Johnny: There isn't going to be a war. We're going to compromise with Sonny Corinthos.
Sonny: I'll tell you what -- Trevor has to be careful. It's one thing to pull Anthonyís strings -- he was out of his mind, didn't know the difference, but, you know, Johnny's volatile. He doesn't want to be controlled by anybody. He may be stupid enough to try to start a war with us just for the hell of it.
[Knock on door]
Det. Harper: Mr. Corinthos, Mr. Morgan. I understand three of your employees got shot last night.
Sonny: Yeah -- did you find out who did it?
Det. Harper: I'm working on it. Still a few things to clear up. I'm going to have to ask you to come down to the station with me and answer a few questions.
Sonny: Come on. Oh -- all right, I'll have Diane meet you there, okay?
Alexis: That's good. Let Diane spring him out of his mess and I have time to give you a refresher course on the concept of private property.
Sonny: Okay. Alexis, it's kind of, again, a bad time right now, so --
Alexis: You say that every time I come --
Sonny: No, I know, but it's the way it is.
Alexis: Hey, listen, I'm here on behalf of my client, Kate --
Alexis: Who made it very clear that you are infringing on her property line and that you are not respecting her position or her boundaries, so -- don't say I didn't warn you.
Sonny: What's this?
Alexis: It's a restraining order.
Sonny: Okay, first of all, I was with Kate last night, okay? We were having a great time, and she never mentioned one thing about a restraining order.
Sonny: Yeah, really.
Alexis: Oh, she didn't, huh? Oh --
Alexis: Poor girl has no idea what she's in for.
[Christmas music plays]
Georgie: I wouldn't accuse him unless I thought he was capable of hurting you.
Maxie: He's not.
Georgie: Maxie, he was standing outside that door yesterday staring at you, sending a text message, and it was around the same time you got the text message from the killer.
Maxie: Georgie, that doesn't prove anything. Everybody knows Coop text-messages, everyone text-messages. It's the only way anyone communicates anymore.
Georgie: He's stalking you, Maxie.
Maxie: Or he was just trying to figure out whether or not he should bother giving me another chance. I mean, after all the stupid, self-destructive things I've done, I can't say that I blame him.
Georgie: How much do you really know about him -- I mean, really? What do you know about his life before you met him?
Maxie: Oh, no! Don't -- don't shoot me! Don't, please.
Coop: What the hell did you do that for?
Maxie: Well, I thought you might be roasting.
Coop: Give me one good reason not to kill you.
Maxie: All I need to know.
Johnny: I'm going to meet with Sonny and work out a deal that will allow us to use the Corinthos-Morgan piers at a shared profit. In exchange, I'll offer to keep the peace.
Trevor: "Shared profit"? Are you kidding me? What do you think we're running here, a commune? All you got to know is that Sonny and Jason know that you killed three men and you stole nearly a million dollars worth of product. You go down there and talk to them, they're going to -- kill you before you open your mouth.
Johnny: You've been using my father's name for years to hide behind your own agenda and Sonny knows it.
Johnny: Last night was no different.
Trevor: Come on, go ahead. Be my guest, Johnny. Go ahead, whine to Sonny -- "it's all Trevor's fault. It's all his fault." You know what he's going to think about you? That you are nothing but weak.
[Knock on door]
Man: Detective Spencerís here.
Johnny: Let him in.
Trevor: What can we do for you, Detective?
Lucky: There was a shooting on the docks last night. You're wanted downtown for questioning.
Trevor: Go ahead, I'll meet you there.
Johnny: Donít. I can do this more efficiently without your counsel.
Jason: You can talk all you want. I'm not going to say anything without my attorney.
Det. Harper: Well, you can listen until she gets here. Someone is going around town strangling women. First victim was your boss' nanny, the second, his ex-girlfriend, the third, his ex-wife. Carly's the only one to survive and guess who supposedly saved her -- John Zacchara. When Detective Spencer brought that same John Zacchara down for questioning, you wasted no time sending your attorney down here to get him released. A couple hours later, Zacchara repays you by hijacking one of your shipments and shooting three of your men. Now, what I can't figure out is why you bothered to protect Zacchara at all -- unless you wanted him out so you can kill him yourself.
Sonny: Kate has known what I do from day one. I've made no secret of the fact that my business is dangerous and I have to take precautions with the people that I care about -- you know that.
Alexis: I do know that. You know what? I'm -- I'm here as your friend. I'm here -- I'm trying to help you. I don't want you to mess this up. She's a nice girl. She's also an independent, free-thinking woman who's very capable of providing for her own security.
Sonny: I'm not going to have this discussion with you, because, look, I'm going to protect Kate whether she likes it or not -- that's just the way it has to be.
Alexis: There lies the problem. Don't you see this? You pursue women without any understanding of how your life affects theirs -- and it does, it really does. I know. I have the experience of -- of seeing how difficult a relationship with you can be.
Sonny: Kate and I are going to be able to deal with this and, look, if you cannot be objective about this, you need to tell Kate to find a lawyer who can.
Man: Lulu Spencerís here to see Mr. Zacchara.
Trevor: Oh, send her in.
Lulu: Oh. Um -- I'm sorry. I was here to see Johnny.
Trevor: Oh, he stepped out. But is there anything I can help you with?
Lulu: Huh -- no. I don't think so.
Trevor: It must've been really important for you to come all this way.
Lulu: I just came by to thank Johnny for driving us to the hospital and update him on my dad's progress. He left before we knew anything.
Trevor: Well, he actually stayed there for quite a while with me after he dropped you off.
Lulu: He did?
Trevor: Yeah. I had a guard follow him.
Lulu: Huh, yeah. No, I -- I didn't see him.
Trevor: Well, that's because you were probably with your father. Anyway, you can tell him yourself, or I can pass the message on.
Lulu: Well, I'm sure you'll see Johnny before I do.
Trevor: I thought that you talked really often.
Lulu: No, I don't think my boyfriend would like that very much.
Trevor: I can understand that. John has gotten into trouble lately -- some really iffy situations.
Lulu: What happened?
Trevor: Right now, he's down at the Port Charles police station. They're questioning him about a triple homicide. It's probably better that you keep your distance.
Logan: Georgie, have you seen Lulu?
Georgie: No. She's not on the schedule today. But it's changing all the time, so I could be mistaken.
Logan: All right, um -- if you see her, would you let her know that I was looking for her?
Georgie: Logan, wait. Do you have a minute to talk? I sort of -- I wanted to ask your opinion on something.
Logan: Why? You can't stand me.
Georgie: Okay -- point taken. I don't like what you and Maxie did to Lulu. But Lulu seems to have forgiven you, so I guess I should, too. Everyone deserves a second chance, right?
Logan: I guess. What can I do for you?
Georgie: How long have you known Coop?
Georgie: He and Maxie are starting up a relationship again and I just want to make sure that he's the right person for her.
Logan: Oh, I'd be more worried about Coop getting hurt in that deal than Maxie. She is the one that cheated on him, trashed his relationship.
Georgie: Okay, okay, all right. I understand that Maxie's made a lot of mistakes.
Georgie: But almost dying last night has really put some things into perspective for her. She's determined to be a good person. Logan, I just want to make sure that the people in her life are good, too.
Logan: Well, you know, Coop's a decent guy -- even better soldier. You know, the type of guy you want next to you in a firefight -- strong, fearless. Once Coop got started, there was -- there was no stopping him till the job was done.
Georgie: Are you saying that Coop was good at killing people?
Logan: Well, I've known Coop for a number of years now, and he's always been obsessive - yeah, obsessive -- about finishing whatever he sets out to do.
Det. Harper: I know you don't have much faith in law enforcement, but I am doing everything I can to find the person who strangled Emily. If it turns out to be John Zacchara, I will see to it that he pays, but in order for that to happen, I need your full cooperation.
Jason: I have nothing to say without my attorney.
Det. Harper: Fine. You're free to go.
Maxie: Your dress from the boutique, all the alterations were made for your shoot on Monday.
Sam: Oh, thank you. I was just about to make a cup of coffee. Do you want a cup?
Maxie: Yeah, sure. Do you think I can get it to go, though? I want to do a surprise for Coop and I want to make sure it's finished before he gets off work.
Sam: Uh -- I thought you and Coop broke up.
Maxie: Well, we did, but we started talking a few weeks ago, which is a miracle in itself considering how upset he was about my deal that I made with Logan. He wasn't sure if he could trust me anymore, but after yesterday, that all went out the window. I guess it took me nearly dying for Coop to realize life's too short to waste any time.
Sam: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you talking about?
Maxie: Oh, so, someone broke into Macís house and I went home to change for work yesterday and the next thing I know, I had a phone cord wrapped around my neck. I couldn't breathe, you know? If Georgie hadn't walked in when she did, I would probably be dead.
Sam: Wow. I mean, that must've been terrifying.
Maxie: As awful as it was, I'm strangely grateful that it brought me and Coop back together.
Georgie: Hi, hi. I need you to help me find out everything you can on -- come here -- on Coop starting with his military record. I was talking to Logan today and apparently, Coop is not such a great soldier. Um -- he was borderline obsessive with his missions in Iraq, which goes way beyond dedication. So there's got to be something in that file that can convince Maxie that he's not the person she thinks he is. Why are you still sitting here?
Spinelli: I just -- the Jackal would advise you to consider your source of said information before lending it too much credence. I mean, come on -- the simian one?
Georgie: My sister nearly died and she's still in danger and all you can think about is -- is being jealous of Logan?
Spinelli: I'm -- I'm sorry. My apologies, wise one. The Jackal will do whatever he can to help, okay?
Georgie: I'm sorry, Spinelli. I'm -- I'm really sorry. I shouldn't be taking this out on you. I'm just -- I'm really worried about Maxie. What if this entire time, Logan has been the safe one and Cooper is the real psycho?
Lucky: Now, this is convenient. The two men who would know what went down last night at the docks are both here in the same room. Who wants to go first -- Jason? Yeah, I didn't think so. Let's go.
Det. Harper: Take him in there. I'm done with Morgan.
Lucky: You know, that was some look that Morgan gave you. I'm guessing that he knows you were the guy who jumped his shipment. I hope you're ready for the fallout because you just started a mob war.
[Knock on door]
Sonny: If you're looking for Spinelli, he's not --
Lulu: Actually, I -- I came to see you. I probably should've called or something first.
Sonny: No, no, come in.
Lulu: Okay. Ahem. Uh --
Sonny: What's going on?
Lulu: I know that this is none of my business, but will you please still hear me out? Johnny Zacchara is being questioned by the cops about the shooting, but he had nothing to do with it.
Sonny: What do you know about the shooting?
Lulu: Nothing, but I do know Johnny. And he may be messed up because of his psycho father, but he had nothing to do with what happened on the docks.
Sonny: Yeah, you're right -- it's none of your business. Ahem.
Lulu: I mean, Sonny, maybe if you'd talk to --
Sonny: Okay, listen. Johnny chose to take over his father's business. It's up to him to deal with the consequences.
Sam: Here you go.
Maxie: Thank you. You're so sweet.
Sam: You're welcome.
Maxie: Anyway, I should get going. Coop gets off work in a couple of hours and I haven't even started his surprise yet.
Sam: Hey, I was -- I was thinking. I mean, just hear me out here. How would you and Coop like to spend the night here tomorrow night? I've got to go to work in Manhattan and I won't be back until Saturday, so I was thinking that maybe you could make him a romantic dinner, maybe use the hot tub. I don't know, but I guarantee it's going to be a lot more romantic than the room at Kellyís.
Maxie: Thank you so much, Sam. That will be so awesome.
Sam: You're welcome. Just promise me one thing, please.
Maxie: We will keep this place spotless. You will never know we were even here.
Sam: No, no, no, it has nothing to do with this place. Just promise me that you're going to be careful. Someone tried to kill you and I don't want whoever this guy is to get another chance.
Georgie: What's taking so long?
Spinelli: Look, it -- it's not as if you've asked me to Jackal driving records from the D.M.V., okay? I -- I have to -- I have to access a government server which is constantly monitored for even the slightest breach, and then hack into military personal personnel records to find the dd-214 for one Cooper H. Barrett.
Georgie: What, what?
Spinelli: I'm -- there it is. Um -- wow, huh -- the not-so-clean cadet's full service records and discharge papers and, well, for once, it looks like the unworthy one was speaking the truth. Okay, look. Um -- Sergeant Barrett was awarded many commendations for his service in Iraq. He was trained in Special Forces and then assigned to an elite unit, where it looks like he had many missions to practice on.
Georgie: Wow, well, that explains how -- how he was able to kill -- or at least try to kill -- four women without getting caught. Now all we have to do is prove it's him.
Det. Rodriguez: Busted.
Coop: Hey, Rodriguez.
Det. Rodriguez: How do you think Macís going to react when I tell him about this?
Coop: I was just checking on Maxie.
Det. Rodriguez: You almost broke your hand flipping the phone closed. Hey, man, me and my girlfriend do it all the time -- text-message each other a little sex talk? And the pictures? Keeps things interesting. That look on your face --
Coop: Yeah, well, you got me.
Det. Rodriguez: Could you imagine if Mac saw the stuff that you were sending?
Coop: Scary thought.
Det. Rodriguez: Whew. What's scary is that even after you delete the stuff, it's never really gone. There's some geek out there who can dig it up, so be careful.
Coop: All right. Thanks. Hey, if you happen to run into Maxie, don't tell her that I haven't been at work.
Det. Rodriguez: Why not?
Coop: Well, I'm kind of planning something that I want to be a surprise.
Sonny: How'd it go?
Jason: The cops think the Zaccharas are behind the ambush, of course. But of course, they have no evidence to prove that, and then Lucky was bringing Johnny in for questioning as I was leaving.
Sonny: Did he say anything?
Jason: Not to me.
Sonny: Ahem. Nobody wins in a war -- too many innocent people get hurt, you know? I want to avoid that at all costs. But don't get me wrong -- the day will come when we have to take Johnny Zacchara down.
Det. Harper: Three men were gunned down last night outside the Corinthos-Morgan warehouse. Two were pronounced dead on the scene, the third died in surgery. According to several eyewitnesses, they were ambushed while waiting for a shipment. You want to tell me where you were around 9:00?
Lucky: Of course not. Old Johnny boy here -- he took a page out of Jason Morganís book. The difference is you gave up your right to have an attorney present. That means we can keep you here as long as we want.
Det. Harper: Or until he answers the question -- where were you last night around 9:00?
Johnny: General Hospital.
Det. Harper: What were you doing there?
Lucky: You went to see Lulu, didn't you? Didn't you?
Det. Harper: Officer Spencer!
Lucky: You know what -- I don't care who you are! You stay the hell away from my family! I'm not telling you again.
Nurse: Uh -- your dad's down having tests.
Nurse: And someone left this for you at the desk.
Lulu: Thank you.
Logan: Hey, what's that?
Lulu: Um -- a note from Bobbie. It was just --
Logan: Oh. Hey, are -- are we okay, you know?
Lulu: You -- oh, you mean about before? I -- I told you I didn't think that you were taking advantage.
Logan: All right. Well, I just -- I want to be sure, Lulu, because I don't want there to be, you know, anything left unsaid between us.
Lulu: We're okay.
Logan: Well, how about you let me make it up to you anyway? How about dinner tomorrow night, huh?
Lulu: Oh, oh, I canít. I promised Elizabeth that I would baby-sit for Cam and Jake.
Trevor: John is determined to keep the peace with Corinthos. So, of all the people we know, who would be most likely to ensure that John sees this war through? Lulu Spencer.
Mr. Vaughn: Not for nothing, boss, but one can make Johnny do anything he doesn't want to do.
Trevor: Well, unless he's given the proper motivation, so I tell you what I've done. I wrote a letter to Lulu, presumably from Johnny, asking her to meet him down at the docks tomorrow night. She thinks that she's got a date and Johnny thinks that he's going to meet Jason Morgan. Well, you're going to be waiting there for them and when they show up --
Mr. Vaughn: You want me to take Johnny out?
Trevor: Nah. Spare the kid but kill the girl and make it look like Corinthos ordered it.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Coop: Where are we supposed to meet?
Maxie: The last place anyone will think of looking for us.
Spinelli: I'm trying to find some proof that Cooper Barrett is the text-message killer.
Sonny: Go ahead and say what you got to say.
