Sam: Please, Lucky, please, just hear me out. I know what I did was awful.
Lucky: Yeah, which time? What was more awful, do you think? Watching Jake being kidnapped, standing behind Elizabeth, never saying a word? Or hiring two guys with guns to scare Elizabeth and those boys in the park?
Sam: I was angry, I was hurt. I was angry at Jason and Elizabeth, I was desperate, Lucky.
Lucky: I thought you acted out by coming on to me. You're an adult! It inconceivable to me that you could be so selfish, so self-centered in risking an innocent little boy's life!
Sam: It wasn't like that. You don't understand --
Lucky: No, I think you need to understand this -- I will help Elizabeth and Jason do whatever it takes to make sure you never come near Jake again.
Jason: Hey. Jax around?
Carly: No, no. He's out for a while. Why? Is it Jake? Is he okay?
Jason: You know, you can't keep saying that every time I see you.
Carly: I'm sorry, okay? I'm -- I'm sorry. What's wrong, then? Why are you here?
Jason: Okay, I -- I really have nothing to back this up but instinct.
Carly: Instinct? Okay. Well, I trust your instinct.
Jason: I'm not sure that Cooper was really the text message killer.
Carly: What are you talking about? The police closed the case.
Jason: I know that. I'm just not convinced that Cooper is the killer.
Carly: All right, Mac must have some airtight evidence, okay? There's no way that he would close this case with his daughter's murderer still walking around out there.
Jason: I get it, I get that. They think it's all over -- Mac, the police -- everybody. I don't -- I don't think so.
Carly: So you think this maniac is just out there walking around?
Jason: Yeah, I think it's possible. The only problem is I don't have any proof.
Carly: But you have a theory -- you don't think Coop did it. Who do you think the real killer is?
Logan: Didn't I just take you home?
Lulu: It's not home anymore.
Logan: Uh-oh. What's going on?
Lulu: Well, the good news is my dad's back. The bad news is Monica threw Tracy out, and by association, my dad had to leave, too. And I felt weird staying there, even though Edward said I could.
Logan: So where are you going to go?
Lulu: I don't know. I -- um -- I could stay at Wyndemere. I could ask Lucky if --
Logan: You know, why inconvenience your brothers? Why don't you just move back in with me?
Jax: Kate, I don't really like to keep secrets from my wife.
Kate: Jax, what I'm about to tell you has to be kept a secret from everyone -- except Sonny. He knows -- he --
Kate: He thinks he knows.
Jax: Okay, okay --
Kate: Jax, I don't have anyone to tell, I don't have anyone I trust.
Jax: What could be so top-secret about Kate Howardís past?
Kate: Kate Howard doesn't have a past -- she doesn't exist. She's a creation, a total fabrication. I am really Connie Falconeri from Bensonhurst. I'm the first person who broke Sonny Corinthos' heart.
Woman: If you're taking inventory, I can pretty much guarantee I've got everything you're looking for.
Sonny: Leave your shoes on.
Lulu: I don't think my moving in would be a good idea. You know, I -- I don't think that we're there yet. I mean, I -- I don't think that we're there again. Moving in puts a lot of pressure on two people, a lot of expectations.
Logan: Like what? Like you expecting me not to notice that you're still into Johnny -- the guy that got you kidnapped? The guy that almost got both of us blown up on a ship bringing in God knows what to Port Charles? Or the guy that after all of that, you went to go find and patch up? And now a guy that you claim to just be friends with?
Lulu: What do you want me to say?
Logan: I -- I don't know. You won't deny that you have feelings for him.
Lulu: Maybe I'm still a little raw that you slept with Maxie.
Logan: Maybe it's time you got over that. I chose you.
Lulu: What are you trying to prove?
Logan: I'm just trying to see how much of you is here with me, Lulu.
Lulu: Really? Are my percentages high enough?
Logan: I don't know, but I'll let you know after you spend the night with me.
Trevor: What does that mean, "she wasn't there"?
Mr. Vaughn: It means exactly that. Look, she calls, she says her flight came in early, she's at the hotel, and she's going to meet the car out in front with her bags.
Trevor: And what did you do then?
Mr. Vaughn: What'd I do? I -- I went to the hotel, she wasn't there. The bags were there with instructions for the driver to take the bags to the house, and -- you're going to love this -- she said she'd get there as soon as she could.
Trevor: It's impossible; she doesn't know anybody in Port Charles. So where is she? What is she doing?
Johnny: Where's who, and doing what?
Woman: So who is she?
Sonny: Who's who?
Woman: The woman you're trying to forget?
Sonny: I don't know -- I seem to have forgotten her.
Woman: You're not married.
Sonny: Noticed I don't have a ring on my finger?
Woman: And you didn't look at the door once, which means you weren't expecting someone to walk in.
Woman: You weren't hoping someone would, either. You weren't trying to give someone an eyeful. No fears, no agenda, no marriage.
Sonny: What else was I besides good?
Woman: Besides the good parts, you were angry. You're hurt, and you're still in love with her.
Jax: You're kidding, right? This is some kind of joke?
Kate: No, not. Apparently, along with a lot of other desirable characteristics, I seem to have left my sense of humor back in Brooklyn -- along with my family's name.
Jax: So, Connie Falconeri -- is that right? Why'd you change it?
Kate: Because, Jax, Connie couldn't be someone like the editor in chief of "Couture." She couldn't be on the board of a museum, or move with style and grace through the hordes of high-powered, over-bred humanity with whom I had to interact.
Jax: So when you knew Sonny, you knew Sonny as -- as Connie, is that right?
Kate: Oh, yeah. We were quite the item back in the neighborhood.
Jax: Really? Well, it was serious?
Kate: We were going to run away together. But as it turned out, I just ran -- or, Connie did. Connie wanted more than she thought she could have with the neighborhood bad boy.
Jax: Yeah, and she got it -- and a whole lot more.
Kate: Yeah, she did. After she got a new name, she got a new life, a whole new past, and the decades went by and it all just faded into the background. Bensonhurst and Connie and Sonny -- all of it.
Jax: Then you came here.
Kate: I wanted a weekend home. I wanted some peace. I came here with my assistant, I got lost in the rain, and I ended up in Sonny Corinthos' office. I mean, really, what are the odds of that?
Jax: Well, quite good, apparently.
Kate: Yeah, and the sparks -- they blew back into flames, and we were right back where we started -- or, I should say, where we ended. Sonny proposed to me, and I ran -- again.
Sam: I would not have hurt Jake.
Lucky: Why should I believe you? Why should anybody believe anything you say?
Sam: I really don't know what I can say to make you --
Lucky: Nothing. Nothing at all because it's inconceivable to me. You -- you had a miscarriage. You lost a baby. How could you just stand there and say nothing while somebody stole one? I mean, did you hate Elizabeth that much?
Sam: Yes, I did! In that moment standing there, yes. I was -- I was filled with hatred and jealousy, and I wanted revenge. But, Lucky, everything happened so fast. That woman -- she came out and she grabbed Jake. She just -- she took him, and all of a sudden he was gone, and it was too late to say anything.
Lucky: Yeah, well, it could've been too late for Jake! Did you even think about that? No, because all you could think about was that woman taking that child that was the one connection between Elizabeth and Jason. Did you really think you had a chance with Jason when Jake was out of the picture?
Sam: No, no, no, no, no! Listen, don't you see? The woman was there, and then she was gone. I didn't even have time to think. By the time I realized what was happening, it was over, it was done!
Lucky: Stop it, Sam! Once Jake was found, you made sure Elizabeth was so terrified that she wouldn't let Jason have a shot at raising his own son! And you just kept standing there, watching this all play out while you were playing me!
Sam: Oh, man. Yes. It is all true, every last word of it. I was in agony! You are not the only one that was lied to here. I had lost everything that was worth living for. And I had to find a way to pick up the pieces of what was left of my life and rebuild it. I would not have been able to do that without you, Lucky. Come on, please --
Lucky: No, just --
Sam: The last thing I ever thought I wanted, the last thing with -- I never thought I would wind up having feelings for you, but I did -- I do! I do, Lucky, and they are real.
Lucky: Yeah, maybe.
Sam: No, donít.
Lucky: Or maybe -- maybe this could just be a ploy -- so you can just be closer to me, Cameron, and Jake, so you can just keep sticking it to Elizabeth and Jason. Well, you know what? I don't care. I really don't, because I've been lied to by you, Elizabeth, and Maxie. I've been treated like -- the biggest fool, that's what I am.
Sam: No, you are not.
Sam: You are kind and amazing, and you are trusting --
Lucky: Yeah, well, from now on, all I'm going to do is focus on being a father, and I want you to get out of here.
Sam: You don't understand. You really don't understand what happened.
Lucky: As far as you goes, I don't care --
Sam: Please, Lucky, don't --
Lucky: Just as long as I never see your face.
Lulu: I am not spending the night with you.
Lulu: Because that invitation had all the charm of being dragged back to your cave by my hair.
Logan: Lulu, I want to be with you.
Lulu: No, no, you want me to prove something to you, but I'm not going to do it.
Logan: Because you canít.
Lulu: Because I don't have to. I'm not the one who's dragging Johnny into every single conversation that we have. You can't seem to open your mouth without putting him down or trying to prove that you're better than he is.
Logan: Just better for you.
Lulu: Well, you know what? If you really mean that, then show me. Be the best Logan that you can be, because that is all that I would want to be with.
Logan: I'm sorry, Lulu, I'm pushing it.
Lulu: Maybe there is no winning for us, for any of us.
Logan: What does that mean?
Lulu: It means maybe I should just -- I should be on my own.
Logan: All right -- till Johnny comes along, right? Hmm?
Lulu: Thank you, thank you. That just made up my mind -- I'm done.
Logan: Lulu, I'm sorry. Come -- come back.
Elizabeth: What are you doing here?
Sam: Oh, we came to say goodbye.
Elizabeth: What are you doing with my son?
Sam: Oh, he's my son. He always should've been my son -- my son with Jason. You never deserved either of them. You lied to everyone, and now it's time to pay the price.
Elizabeth: No, no, he doesn't want to be with you. Give me back my baby! Where are you going?
Sam: Someplace you will never find us.
Elizabeth: Give him back to me! Jake! Jake! No, she took my baby!
Robin: Elizabeth? Elizabeth, it's okay, wake up.
Robin: It's okay, it's okay. You're just having a dream. It's okay, it was just a dream.
Elizabeth: Oh, God, I got to get out of here.
Robin: Well, hold on, wait --
Elizabeth: I got to get out of here.
Robin: Elizabeth, just --
Elizabeth: No -- I have to get out. I have to get to my baby.
Robin: Elizabeth --
Elizabeth: Jake? Jake?
Patrick: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hey, Elizabeth -- hey, hey, calm down.
Elizabeth: Jake? Jake?
Patrick: Hey, calm down. You need something to help calm down?
Patrick: What's happening?
Robin: Jake is with Audrey, remember? Both boys are with her. She just called a couple minutes ago to check on you, and she said they're just fine.
Patrick: Just calm down, Elizabeth. You need something to help you calm down? Tell me what's happening.
Elizabeth: No. I need to get out of this place.
Jason: Look, I -- I have nothing -- I have nothing to go on but a gut feeling. But I am going to look into this, and I just -- I just want you to be careful.
Carly: Hey, you will be the first call I make if I get a text from the killer.
Jason: Okay, see, that's the problem -- Leticia didn't get a text before she was killed, and neither did Emily.
Carly: This doesn't make sense. If Coop wasn't guilty, why did he kill himself?
Jason: Maybe he didnít. Maybe he was getting too close to the truth. Do you know he called me right before he died? Now, why would he do that unless he had something to tell me?
Carly: Maybe he wanted to confess his guilt about Emily but he just couldn't go through with it.
Jason: I -- Carly, I don't know.
Carly: Okay, listen, all I'm saying is maybe this time your instinct's wrong because you wanted to be the one to find Emily's killer.
Jason: Maybe. Look, I just -- I just want you and the kids to stay on your guard so nobody does anything careless.
Trevor: Stay on it.
Johnny: So this "she" you're talking about is a boat?
Trevor: Exactly -- to replace the one that you blew up with Moreau's cargo onboard. Who do you think I was talking about? Oh, of course -- the Spencer girl, your Achilles' heel. You know, John, you are never going to step into your father's footsteps if you don't get rid of her. Your enemies are going to prey on your weaknesses.
Johnny: And what was my father's weakness?
Trevor: Your mother -- at least, his love for her.
Johnny: And who preyed on it, huh -- you?
Sonny: Where you running off to?
Woman: I have a prior engagement. We both got what we came for. Why complicate it?
Sonny: What do you call "complicated"?
Woman: Names, numbers -- anything much more than this conversation.
Sonny: Hmm. Sounds lonely.
Woman: I've known lots of lonely married men, engaged men, family men -- all trying to fill little pockets of empty with other people. I don't need anyone to complete me. I'm enough for me, you get that.
Sonny: Yeah, I do.
Woman: You're someone solitary and serious --
Woman: Who gets what you want when you want it, no matter what the price, but you pay later. Sometimes you keep paying. You're a haunted man.
Sonny: And you know this from one thoroughly enjoyable evening in a hotel room?
Woman: You don't have to tell me. I'm right.
Sonny: Maybe we're a lot alike.
Sonny: If we are, why don't you tell me what haunts you?
Kate: I've tried. Iíve tried to explain this all to Sonny, but he doesn't really understand.
Jax: Well, I'm not sure if I do, either.
Kate: He thinks it's just about the embarrassment of people finding out.
Jax: Well, clearly, that's a big part of it, right?
Kate: Yeah, Jax, it is, but it's more than that. There's -- there's a lot more than that.
Jax: Are you afraid that you're going to lose Kate Howard if you marry Sonny?
Kate: I'm more afraid of someone finding Connie Falconeri.
Carly: Great -- it's going to rain and Jax left his car. Are you on your bike?
Jason: Yeah, yeah, I'm okay.
Carly: Oh, are you sure you're okay? I know that I'm supposed to shut up and let you make your own decisions, but you have a son. How do you not have that connection -- you of all people? Oh -- oh --
Jason: What's wrong?
Carly: I just haven't eaten a lot today and I don't feel well. Whew.
Jason: You know what? I need to -- I need to take this. Maybe you should grab something to eat.
Carly: Please take care of yourself.
Carly: Thanks for the warning.
Jason: Hey. Are you all right?
Elizabeth: Jason, I am crawling out of my skin in this hospital bed.
Jason: What can I do?
Elizabeth: I need to be with you, I can't wait another minute. I know that doesn't make sense, but --
Jason: It makes perfect sense -- I need to be with you, too.
Sam: Lucky? Lucky, please, please don't hang up. I know you don't want to talk to me, but this is really important. I just got a text message from the killer.
Lucky: This is a bad game, Sam, and it's not bright. Coop Barrett is the text message killer and he's dead -- game over.
Sam: No, no, no, no, no! Please listen to me. I am not lying. Lucky, please, I'll show it to you. The message says, "I am not dead after all." Please!
Lucky: No, no, you canít. I'm not falling for it or whoever you hired to text you.
[Knock on door]
Lulu: Hey, you have time for a confused little sister?
Lucky: You know what? I got to go.
Sam: No, Lucky, don't, please! This --
Sam: Oh, my God.
Sam: No, I can't see you! You're not here! Nobody's here. The text message killer is dead.
Sam: Ah -- oh, God.
Sam: Oh, no.
Sam: No! Get -- help! No, leave -- get off! Get off! Get off! Oh -- agh Ė
Elizabeth: I want to feel safe, but I don't know where else to do that but with you. So I'm going to check myself out of here, and I was hoping that we could meet at our place.
Jason: Should -- should you be driving?
Elizabeth: Probably not, but I can't wait. Every time I fall asleep I have really, really bad dreams -- dreams about the fire, about losing Jake, about him being stolen by --
Jason: Stolen by who?
Elizabeth: Oh, God. Jason, yesterday I left the hospital because I needed to see the children, and I found Sam alone with Jake at Lucky's. I -- I freaked out and I -- I popped a stitch and I had to be brought back here because of the bleeding. And on top of everything, Lucky showed up, and I told him, Jason, I told him everything about Sam.
Jason: Okay, you know what? You can tell me all this when you see me -- I'm coming by to pick you up.
Elizabeth: No, no, you canít. We can't be seen together, remember? Don't -- don't worry, I'm going to take the shortcut by the waterfront, and -- and there's no traffic this time of night.
Jason: All right. I'll -- I'll be at the safe house waiting.
Elizabeth: I love you.
Jason: I love you, too.
Carly: Oh -- man.
Michael: Ah --
Carly: Can I call you back? Okay.
Carly: Michael, are you asleep?
Carly: What was that big thump?
Michael: Oh, books fell off.
Carly: Oh. I have to run out, okay? Morgan's asleep, Mercedes is in the kitchen. You get some sleep, all right?
Michael: All right.
Carly: I love you.
Michael: Good night.
Michael: I love you, too.
Jax: What do you mean, you're afraid of someone finding Connie Falconeri?
Kate: I can't be exposed. It would -- it would mean the end of my career and -- and any other I might choose for myself, including the magazine that you so gallantly offered to back me in.
Jax: You know, Kate, there's a big time gap between the day you ran out on Sonny and the day you accepted help from Trevor Lansing.
Kate: Yeah, there's several years. Actually, they're blank years, black years, years I'd like to forget -- that is the other part of this, Jax, that you have to swear to.
Kate: That those years and everything that happened in between -- that they remain a dead issue.
Jax: Oh, it's starting to rain -- that's that storm. Let me walk you back to your car.
Kate: No, I walked all the way from the waterfront.
Jax: Kate, that's an hour away. Let's go back to my place, I'll call you a cab.
Kate: Jax, I meant what I said. You can't tell anyone what I told you.
Sonny: You didn't answer my question. If we're a lot alike, what haunts you?
Woman: Nothing would ever dare. I'm too scary.
Sonny: You don't scare me.
Woman: Well, then you're just not as smart as I thought you were.
Sonny: If -- if I need you again, I'm sure I can find you.
Woman: Let's hope not. A man like you and a woman like me -- we'd destroy everything around us for miles.
Robin: You know, we cannot stop Elizabeth if she wants to check herself out, so -- what?
Robin: You know, I have a -- a child inside of me, not a bomb, so you can stop looking at me like I'm going to explode.
Patrick: I'm not looking at you like that.
Robin: Then what's the problem?
Patrick: Just wondering what would be going through my mind if that child was mine.
Monica: Oh -- I came to work to get away from you.
Tracy: Well, I would think for the safety of the public at large, that's not a good idea.
Monica: You filed your lawsuit, Tracy. There's nothing more you can do.
Tracy: Guess again, Monica.
Monica: Why aren't you with Luke? He is back, he's alive. The two of you should be planning on where you're going to be living in relative poverty.
Tracy: Luke and I are none of your business -- and I will be back in the family home.
Monica: Not if I have anything to do with it.
Tracy: Yeah, but you won't, because when I win the malpractice suit, the first thing I'm going to ask for is the family home.
Monica: You know, this is just hateful, Tracy. It has nothing to do with my capabilities as a doctor. It's just plain personal.
Tracy: I told you not to operate on Luke.
Monica: And I told you he would die if I didnít.
Tracy: He almost did die because of it.
Monica: And let me ask you, where is all the devotion? It seems to me I remember hearing, as I walked out the door, something about you wanted Luke declared dead. Hey, that should go over well at the hearing. Now, will you excuse me? I have a patient schedule to go over.
Tracy: Actually, you don't -- ask Dr. Ford.
Tracy: As head of the hospital board, it is my pleasure to inform you that your surgical privileges have been suspended, effective immediately. You can observe, but you may not touch a scalpel to patient. And when I'm through with you, you won't be able to pick up a butter knife.
Monica: I'll fight you.
Tracy: You can. You might want to cut back on your evening cocktails, or are you drinking all day now? Now, that's something for the hearing.
Kelly: Hey. I normally don't do exams this late, but I know what this means to you.
Carly: I just want it to be official for Jax. Thank you so much for doing this for me.
Kelly: Well, thank me if or when I have good news for you.
Kelly: Let's go.
Robin: I have to tell you I do not recommend you leaving the hospital right now. You're emotionally strained and physically exhausted.
Elizabeth: I'll be fine once I get out of this place. I just need to sleep, and I can't sleep here.
Robin: Okay, okay. I know you need to rest, but at least let me call you a cab or call Audrey or something.
Elizabeth: No, no, I'm fine. You look a little tense yourself.
Robin: It's Patrick.
Elizabeth: Did you tell him he's the father?
Robin: No, no, I didnít. He still thinks that I went through a sperm bank and -- he's stalking me. It's like he knows.
Elizabeth: Robin, tell him the truth. If you plan on telling him at all, the sooner he knows, the less angry he'll be.
Robin: Um -- Nikolas is waiting to go over his new med protocol with us. What now?
Patrick: I don't know.
Robin: Okay, well, when you figure it out, let me know -- or not.
Sam: Help! Somebody please help me! Please wake up, please! Please -- agh! No! God --
Sam: That's it, I --
Lulu: I know the whole text message killer thing is over, but I'm still a little spooked about staying at Wyndemere with Nikolas -- even though I know he could probably use the company. And the last person that I'm going to stay with is Logan because he's being such a jerk about this whole Johnny thing. He's so jealous, and I've probably given him a reason to be. But he can't seem to get past it, and you are not listening to a word I'm saying, are you?
Lucky: Sure. You -- you said something about not wanting to live with the Quartermaines.
Lulu: Yeah, something like that. What's up with you?
Lucky: You know what? I don't want to get into it.
Lulu: Sam? Elizabeth, Jake -- all of the above?
Lucky: Yeah, it's something like that.
Lulu: Huh. Well, our family is crashing and burning in the love department these days -- and we had such good role models.
Lucky: We did?
Lulu: Yeah, no matter what, Dad loved Mom, Mom loved Dad. Dad still loves Mom, and I know that wherever she is, she still loves him, too. I mean, what is it going to take for us to find that -- assuming that it's even out there -- and then how do we know when we've found it?
Lucky: You know what? I'm not sure if it's out there. And if it is, I don't know how to make it last. I touched it with Elizabeth. And even if you lose it, I hope you find that someday, Lulu, even if it only happens once.
Trevor: Enough of the mistrust. Come on, let's deal with it. Where does it come from?
Johnny: Your behavior, things I remember.
Trevor: And what do you remember?
Orderly: Mr. Zacchara is back in his room.
Johnny: How is he?
Trevor: Listen, it's all right. I already spoke with the doctor, I'll tell Mr. Zacchara's son. Thank you.
Johnny: What's going on?
Trevor: John, your father took a turn for the worse, so prepare yourself. He might not have that long to live.
Johnny: Why is my father suddenly going downhill?
Anthony: Stop talking about me like I'm dead. I'm not dead, and I'm not going to be dead. I'm going to stay alive just to piss you off.
Johnny: Well, you sound like -- like yourself.
Anthony: How do you know what I sound like? When was the last time you were here? Maria's got all kinds of excuses all the time about why you're not here. They're all a load of crap.
Johnny: My mother's dead.
Trevor: Don't excite him.
Anthony: You stay out of this; I'm talking to my son. I'm supposed to get a new nurse. I don't trust any of them anymore.
Anthony: Because they're old and ugly and heavy-handed.
Anthony: Except this one. Hello, nursie.
Woman: Hi, Daddy.
Sonny: I need to talk to Carly. Is she around?
Jax: She's not here.
Kate: I'm not at all sure that Carly will be pleased about me wearing this Ė
[Truck horn honks]
Lulu: It's easier to get information out of a clam.
Lucky: I didn't realize that this was an interrogation.
Lulu: It's not. All that I know is you've obviously had a fight with Sam. And the way that you're talking makes it sound like you might want to get back together with Elizabeth.
Monica: Damn you.
Sam: Agh! Get off! Agh! Get --
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Johnny: What are you doing here?
Woman: Ask Trevor -- he's the one who sent for me.
