Jax: I've been to every one of Michaelís friends on the list. No one's seen him. I think we should call the police.
Carly: We canít. We canít. Jason's out looking for him. He said not to do anything until we've heard from him.
Jax: Well, hold on a second. Michael's our son, not Jasonís. We get to make our own decisions about him.
Sonny: Hey. You got to come back to me now, because you're -- I'm -- you're killing me here. You got to stay -- she's not -- she's not staying focused.
Leo: She is.
Sonny: I mean, sometimes she does, in and out, and --
Leo: Well, she's just staying focused on healing. She's smart. That's more than I expect from most patients in her position.
Sonny: She smiled earlier, just a little bit, you know?
Leo: Yeah? Well, good. Good. She has a deep connection to you, even in a semiconscious state. It's beautiful, man. Keep that up.
Sonny: I'm not going anywhere.
Leo: We just need to make some assessments. So we won't be long. You can see her in a bit.
Sonny: Um -- all right, all right.
Jason: How bad is she?
Sonny: Oh -- every-- everybody's going to be better off when I find out who the slob was and put him into the ground. What do you got?
Jason: Michael could be missing.
Johnny: Hey, sleepyhead.
Lulu: Huh. What -- what are you looking at?
Johnny: Nothing, just watching you sleep. But not in a creepy way. I'm just listening to the pattern of your breathing, thinking that this is the first time in forever I'm just happy to wake up.
Alexis: A penny for your thoughts, or are they too murderous?
Sam: Oh -- no, no. It was nothing like that at all. Even though it should be, considering the hell that you and I have been through, and Maxie. I mean, Georgie and Emily are dead, and Leticia. I just --
Alexis: If it was Logan, he's obviously a very disturbed man.
Sam: But is that him? I mean, really, can -- can you wrap your mind around Logan Hayes being the text message killer?
Alexis: We're not going to know anything until he wakes up. And only then will we know if this nightmare is over.
Jax: You're actually saying that I can't call the police to search for our missing son?
Carly: I've been through this before. The police aren't going to do anything. He hasn't technically been missing 24 hours.
Jax: Oh. Right, right. Sure. That really wouldn't matter, anyway, would it? Because we're going to do what Jason wants, right? We're going to wait for Jason to exhaust all his mob-related contacts and check up all his mob-related reasons why Michael could be missing. And then we're just going to wait to see what Jason wants us to do -- until he gives us his command, isn't that right?
Carly: Stop. No, stop it! Jason practically raised Michael, okay? He took care of him before I did. He's going to do whatever it takes to find him, Jax.
Jax: Oh, meaning I won't? Meaning I'm not capable?
Carly: No. I never said that.
Jax: Meaning when our child is born, I'm allowed to change diapers and feed the baby and everything, but when something really serious happens, we'll just have to see what Jason says, right?
Carly: Stop it! You stop twisting my words!
Jax: Then stop giving me second-rate status in this marriage!
Carly: I'm not!
Jax: You know what? That's what it -- that's what it feels like. I mean, Jason always comes first. It's "Jason this, Jason that." It's like "Jason's my best friend." I mean, how many times -- you know what? It wouldn't surprise me if you told Jason you wanted us to try to have a baby before you told me. God, I hate it when I'm right. You know, at least I got to father it, right?
Carly: You know what? Jason has been protecting me and my family for a long time, and you know this. He is my dearest friend.
Jax: Yes, yes, and I'm your husband!
Carly: Why can't you just trust him?
Jax: Oh, that's funny. I was going to ask you why you couldn't do the same for me!
Carly: This is great. This is great.
Jax: I'm -- I am -- I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I don't --
Carly: I am standing here, Jax, and I am scared to death.
Jax: Hey, I don't -- I don't want to fight. Come here. I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Sonny: The Zaccharas have hit with both barrels.
Jason: Sonny, there's no proof Michael being missing has anything to do with Kate or that the Zaccharas are responsible for either one.
Sonny: Just get me the proof.
Jason: Okay, Carly is a wreck, even more so because she --
Sonny: Because what, because she's married to Jax, who's probably on his way here with the cops?
Jason: No. Look, I told her not to do anything till I gave her the word.
Sonny: What we're going to do is we're going to wait to be notified by the Zaccharas as far as the -- what they want to do with the ransom. We bring in the cops right now, Michael pays. As far as -- you know, the other five families -- they know better not to touch this, but there's got to be something that ties all this together. Trevor claims he had nothing to do with the shooting, not that I would believe that sack of spit if he told me the sky was blue.
Jason: Anthony -- Anthony could have ordered this to -- to impress somebody, to prove he still has what it takes.
Sonny: Well, Johnny's proving a lot right now. You know what I'm talking about --
Jason: Yes, and I -- I had Spinelli dig into Claudiaís past. There's not -- there's nothing there.
Sonny: Have him dig deeper, because she's the craziest of the bunch. If I had to pick one of them to do this to Kate, it would be that bitch.
Sonny: Bec-- let's just say she doesn't take rejection very well.
Trevor's voice: Claudia? Claudia?
Trevor: Claudia --
Claudia: I was just remembering how that nasty tone of command has always been in your voice.
Trevor: Did you do it?
Claudia: What? I've done a lot of things.
Trevor: Did you shoot Kate Howard?
Claudia: See, she's just one of those women who deserves to be shot.
Trevor: Answer the question.
Claudia: Calm down, Trevors. You don't want to give yourself a stroke. Talk about deserving --
Trevor: Enough of your games. Sonny Corinthos almost put a bullet in me outside of Kate's operating room. Did you, or did you not shoot Kate Howard?
Trevor: All right. I believe you.
Claudia: Speaking of games -- when were you planning on telling me that you're Sonny Corinthos' stepdaddy?
Ric: Thanks for taking my call, and getting here so quickly.
Elizabeth: Well, you said something about somebody needing medical attention?
Ric: Yes, they do. Come in. I didn't know who else I could call or trust. It's okay.
Elizabeth: What'd you do to her?
Elizabeth: Come with me. Sit down so I can take a look at you.
Ric: I didn't do this -- although with our history, um, it's painfully logical for you to make that leap.
Marianna: No, he didn't touch me. He helped me; maybe he even saved my life.
Elizabeth: Then why didn't you go to the hospital?
Ric: It's okay, we can trust her.
Elizabeth: I'm going to need some warm water and a clean cloth.
Elizabeth: This looks like it might need stitches, but I can't tell until I get it cleaned up. You really need to see a doctor.
Marianna: I canít.
Elizabeth: Why? Are you in trouble?
Marianna: I didn't do anything wrong, if that's what you mean.
Elizabeth: There's nothing on earth a woman could do to deserve this.
Elizabeth: You don't have to explain. Let me just get this cleaned up.
Marianna: You're very kind. You must be Elizabeth.
Johnny: The coffee smells like coffee. I can't say the same for these rolls. You know, there's nothing around here but this seedy little food shack, which is crazy because you've got the marina and the business district within 10 blocks of any direction. Somebody's missing out on a gold mine.
Lulu: That's very business-minded of you.
Johnny: Is that a bad thing?
Lulu: No, it's just not the Johnny that hangs out on rooftops and takes the curves at the lookout point like he's invincible.
Johnny: My possibilities have always been limited living behind the confines of the Zacchara compound. It was always funneled by my father's craziness, my life was filtered by Trevor, and I always felt that I should be alone or that I was alone because it was always too dangerous to involve anybody else, you know?
Lulu: So, what changed?
Johnny: Being free, possibility of you.
Johnny: What's wrong?
Lulu: Nothing. It's just -- you know, us being here and we're --
Lulu: Feeling so good, well, you know, because --
Johnny: Right -- it's all riding on the back of Logan's life.
Patrick: I wish I had better news. We can't force him into consciousness. The longer he stays in this state, the more likely he is to slip into a coma which really has no time limit.
Mac: I need some answers.
Scott: Yeah, well, so do I.
Patrick: You're not going to get any, not right now. I'll keep you updated.
Scott: I should've confronted him when I brought him in the hospital for his ribs.
Mac: You couldn't have known.
Scott: Ah, he told me he was in bar fight. He had no money, so I paid his hospital bill, then I find out that Sam kicked her attacker in the ribs before her hit-and-run. I wanted to believe his story and I still do, Mac. Maybe he was just collecting this stuff from the killer, you know, so that he could frame Johnny and make time with Lulu -- and that the killer is still out there.
Mac: We're going to find out sooner or later. Let's just hope it doesn't take another dead body to prove it.
Alexis: And I bought you this phone. It's on my calling plan. It's a home, office, and entertainment system on it. You can do whatever you want. You can DVD, play music, play games.
Sam: Hey --
Alexis: You can mix drinks.
Sam: Whoa, whoa, whoa -- wait. Can you make phone calls?
Alexis: I have no idea.
Sam: Oh, great.
Alexis: But I figured it'll take you some time figuring out whether you can or not and it'll help you pass the time.
Sam: Huh, thank you. Oh, you know what? I actually talked Dr. Devlin into sending me home today. I just -- I really want to go home.
Lucky: I don't think you should do that.
Sam: Why -- do you have a better idea?
Lucky: We need to talk about this.
Alexis: He is trying.
Sam: No, he is guilty. And you know, there was a time when I would've probably used that to hold on to him, but no, not now.
Alexis: Why don't you come home with me? It'll make Kristina feel better.
Sam: I don't know. I don't want to scare her, I'm using a cane, and --
Alexis: Okay, why don't you come home -- you know, make me feel better?
Sam: I would say thank you, and I'm saying it -- "thank you." But, you know, I think I am perfectly capable of being home alone right now.
Ric: We pretty much drove all night. There was no place that we could stop that wouldn't involve questions and consequences that Marianna can't afford. Even if they were able to lock up the guy who brought her from Venezuela under false pretenses, they'd still probably hold her somewhere and then ship her out of the country. All of her choices would be gone -- again.
Elizabeth: It's disgusting that any man would hold a woman against her will.
Ric: Yeah, look, I'm going to -- um -- I'm going to call in some favors. You know, immigration law is a whole -- whole new ballgame since 9/11. A lot of innocent people are getting hurt. You know, Mariannaís very resourceful and brave. She'd capture the moths in the coffee shop and set them free rather than kill them. You know, that's not exactly the makings of a terrorist.
Elizabeth: This is just an analgesic, but it'll help with the pain, but you really need to lie down and rest.
Ric: And don't worry about Randy, okay?
Marianna: You don't know him.
Ric: He doesn't know me, right? Look, there's a -- there's a guestroom back there, it's quiet, nobody will bother you. You can take a bath if you want to -- there's lavender soap in the cabinet.
Marianna: Thank you so much.
Elizabeth: You're welcome.
Elizabeth: Well, for all you know about her, she doesn't really know you at all, does she?
Jerry: Oh, Alexis? Hello.
Jerry: How are you holding up?
Alexis: I'm still standing, thank you.
Jerry: I thought you could use some moral support with Kristina.
Alexis: Well, I was just going to pick her up from Dr. Winters and then we're going home.
Jerry: Oh, is there any improvement?
Jerry: No? I'm sorry. I heard they caught the text message killer -- Logan Hayes?
Alexis: I know. If it's him, I don't understand why she would react so violently to him and then just shut down.
Jerry: Hmm. Is Ric home yet?
Alexis: No. Why would he be?
Jerry: Oh. Oh, I have to take that. I'll meet you there when you're done, okay?
Alexis: Got another body to bury?
[Jerry and Alexis chuckle]
Jerry: Talk to me. Are you sure? Do you have any idea how many people are going to be upset by this news?
Carly: Wow. That is a cool picture. Why don't you go upstairs and color, and you can get cleaned up a little bit, okay?
Morgan: Where's Michael?
Jax: Michael's off on an adventure. I'm sure he can't wait to tell you about it when he gets back.
Carly: Thank you.
Jax: You know, Michaelís probably just off on a lark. He's been moody, we've been strict. I ran away once when I was 9.
Carly: That supposed to make me feel better?
Jax: Well, I was back by supper.
Carly: Oh. If this hadn't happened before, you know, I'd --
Jax: Oh, you -- oh. You mean with A.J. and Faith Rosco?
Jax: That's why you're so worried.
Jax: That's why Jason's being extra careful. Still, I -- I'd like to explore the less drastic reason why he's missing. Just a boy who threw some food into his backpack and wanted some time on his own. Maybe he got on a -- on a bus or -- or a boat or maybe he took a train somewhere. You going to be okay for a little while?
Carly: I'll call my mom.
Jax: You know what? You can tell her the good news.
Carly: Now is not the time. You know, it's just not.
Jax: You told Jason, didn't you?
Carly: Yes, I did, yeah.
Jax: Good -- give him extra motivation to find our boy.
Carly: Oh, please find him.
Sonny: Where'd you find it?
Jason: One of our guys found it off near Pier 47.
Sonny: Pier 47? That's about two blocks down across from the Taylor building where we found Kate.
Sonny: So, Michaelís disappearance and Kate's shooting are connected.
Lucky: I thought we were going to talk.
Sam: I'm not really sure what we have to talk about.
Lucky: I can think of a lot of things.
Sam: Yeah, but I bet none of them are based on what we had or -- or what we could've been together. Wait, let me guess -- I bet you're here to ask me to come to your place and -- and stay there until I'm done walking on three legs, huh?
Lucky: Yeah, that's part of it.
Sam: And not because you can't live without me, but because you feel completely responsible for the situation.
Lucky: That's part of it, too.
Sam: Yeah, well, what happened to the love part of it, Lucky? Yeah, that's pretty much where I thought it was, too.
Lucky: Okay, I feel guilty for what happened to you.
Lucky: I admit it. So what?
Sam: "So what?" So I don't need your pity. What do you want?
Lucky: I don't know.
Sam: Oh, boy, you don't know? Well, that's pretty vague territory for two people to move in together, don't you think? Listen, if you're looking for absolution, I suggest that you go to the confessional at the Queen of Angels because I can't give it to you, and you want to know why? Because I don't think you need forgiveness. I am the one who -- who did all of those awful things to Elizabeth and Jake, not you, and I hoped that you would never find out. Now you know it all. It's fine, I can live with that.
Lucky: And you're hurt?
Sam: Yes, I am hurt. What do you think? Yes, inside and out.
Sam: I don't know. Who knows, you know? I -- I don't have to be back to work for a little bit, so maybe I'll take a trip and I'll go on a cruise and count the islands in Greece or something.
Lucky: What if you need something?
Sam: Well, you know, I have a new phone, and it does everything but cook dinner, so I think I'll be fine.
Lucky: Okay, fine, what if you -- what if you need something --
Sam: You will be the last person that I call -- until I know that you're going to call back for the right reasons.
Johnny: I only want to be in this if you're in it 100%.
Lulu: It's just hard to explain. I can't ignore what I did.
Johnny: You were protecting yourself.
Lulu: And I was involved with him, Johnny. On and off, but I was involved with a potential serial killer. What does that say about me?
Johnny: It says that you have a trusting heart.
Lulu: Oh --
Johnny: It does, and that he was damn good at reeling you in. All of the psychotic madness aside, there was a certain brilliance to him, or else he wouldn't have gotten away with what he did for so long.
Lulu: Yeah, maybe.
Johnny: "Maybe"? No, eventually you would've done something or said something to make him turn on you, like Georgie or Emily. I couldn't stand by and watch that happen.
Lulu: What do you mean?
Johnny: I was ready to let you make your choice -- me or Logan. Okay, I was a coward. I didn't want to win you over and then see you hurt.
Lulu: You would never hurt me.
Johnny: No, not me, but my life, my life as it used to be. But I don't have to be bound by that anymore, I don't have to be that last hope of the Zacchara empire or Trevorís puppet. Will you go out to dinner with me?
Johnny: I want you to go on a date with me. I don't care where we go, it could be boring as hell.
Lulu: What? What are you talking about?
Johnny: I'm talking about being like normal people our age, who want to go out and have a good time. Will you meet me back here in a few hours?
Lulu: Okay, yeah, sure, sure. Okay.
Johnny: Okay, good. I have to go home and prove something to somebody.
Johnny: A mousy little girl with red shoes who thinks that love kills. See you later.
Claudia: So talk to me, Trevors, tell me. There's got to be more to this story than just you knocking up Sonny Corinthos' mother and producing a bastard son.
Trevor: None of your business.
Claudia: You know, every single moment of my private life until the minute I was carted out of here was your business -- Johnny's too, and his father's and his motherís. And look at us now -- we're all scattered, we're all damaged. And you're in control and you have all the power? That's just one of the things I intend to change while I'm here.
Trevor: Yeah? All of a sudden you're going to step up and take responsibility? Where's everybody been all these years? Just how long do you think it's going to take you?
Claudia: Until I'm done.
Claudia: Let me rephrase that -- until you're finished.
Trevor: Don't be a fool, Claudia. You are never going to take me down.
Claudia: I'm pretty confident.
Claudia: Hmm. It must be a really cozy Thanksgiving around here, though, huh? Sonny Corinthos, the local kingpin, his estranged brother, the D.A., and the D.A.'s estranged father acting as incumbent head of the Zacchara underworld?
Trevor: No, no, no, no, no, Claudia, I'm not acting anymore, I am the head of the Zacchara underworld. I got all the connections. I got the loyalty and the experience.
Claudia: Hmm -- just not enough to get a foothold in Port Charles.
Trevor: It will come -- with the Alcazar property.
Claudia: Uh-huh. Who's overconfident now?
Trevor: Claudia -- oh, darling, you remember telling me that you were carted off once? What makes you think that that can't happen again?
Ric: Well, Marianna knows all about my ugly past with my brother, my father, this town and pretty much everybody in it. But she didn't care. All that mattered to her was who I was when we met.
Ric: Yeah, I went to Marthaís Vineyard. I -- uh -- I wanted to stir up some old ghosts and see if they looked any differently to me. You know, I -- I can't change what I've done, Elizabeth, only where I go from here.
Elizabeth: Which is?
Ric: Hmm. Well, just before I left town, Skye gave me Alcazar's waterfront property. Hmm -- it's kind of like giving the devil a stick of dynamite, isn't it?
Elizabeth: Maybe worse.
Ric: Oh. So, that's the second time that you've not given me the benefit of the doubt today.
Elizabeth: Well, can you blame me?
Ric: No. How's Jason?
Elizabeth: What does that matter?
Ric: Well, you were in love with him, right? Probably still in love with him. I was more than half convinced that Jake was his child.
Elizabeth: Where are you going with this?
Ric: If Jason were to leave Sonny tomorrow and run off with you, have this big, beautiful, peaceful life, would you want everybody else to judge him for what he'd done?
Elizabeth: That's different.
Ric: No, it's not. It's only different in the eyes of the person who believes in him and loves him. Only in the eyes of the person who loves them and hopes that they can change, and hopes that the change can stick. I used to see that look in your eyes -- of love, trust.
Elizabeth: But you killed it.
Ric: For me.
Elizabeth: Is that what Marianna is -- a second chance at salvation for you?
Ric: No. No, that has to come from me.
Elizabeth: It's kind of funny you met her in a coffee shop --
Elizabeth: Just like you met me.
Elizabeth: I guess you want history to repeat itself.
Ric: No. All I want from Marianna is to be treated with kindness and respect. I'm helping her, Elizabeth, because I can, not because I want anything from her in return.
Elizabeth: That would be a first.
Ric: Yeah, it would.
Sonny: Stay focused on Michael.
Jason: Wait, wait, wait -- what are you going to do?
Sonny: I got to do what I've got to do, that's what I got to do.
Jason: I know that you're upset. You need to be careful before you make things worse, Sonny.
Sonny: Worse -- worse? What do you mean, "worse"? My son's missing. Kate almost died. What do you want me to do?
Jason: Just -- just let me find the proof.
Sonny: Okay, go ahead, find the proof. Find the proof that the Zaccharas did not do this. And with any luck, you'll find the proof before we find body parts. We're going to find legs in the ocean, we're going to find --
Jason: Sonny -- Sonny, let -- let me handle this. You stay with Kate. She needs you.
Sonny: Don't tell me -- don't tell me what Kate needs. I know what she needs, and I know what I need. Go do your job.
Jerry: We need to find a quiet place to have a chat.
Jason: Well, I don't have time right now.
Jerry: Well, make time. It's about Lorenzo Alcazar.
Ric: I thought you were upstairs.
Marianna: I was restless.
Ric: Well, here. I made you some hot milk with a little drop of vanilla in it. You said that you liked that when you were a kid, right?
Marianna: Thank you. You must be a very good lawyer -- you remember everything a person says.
Ric: Well, no information is useless -- especially when you can use it to help somebody feel better.
Ric: Not exactly what I'm used to doing.
Marianna: Well, I remember things, too, you know? Elizabeth -- she's the one chance you said you had at love?
Marianna: And you still love her?
Ric: I will always have a fondness in my heart for Elizabeth. That's all.
Marianna: She doesn't trust you.
Ric: Yeah. Well, I've given her a lot of reasons not to. You know, when you love somebody that much and they betray you, it's almost impossible to go back. Yeah, I can see that look in your eye -- that's a completely foreign concept to you.
Marianna: Oh, no, I've -- I've done my share of betrayals to survive.
Ric: Yeah, you know what? We all have. Just the ones that we do to the people that only want to love us -- those become the big black marks against us.
Marianna: I -- I got to get dressed. I'm not used to, like, being in my robe all day.
Ric: Oh, well, you know, those close -- they had blood on them, so I -- I took the sizes off the labels and I sent out for some new things.
Marianna: You can't keep doing this.
Ric: No, no, no. Until you can come up with a legitimate, logical reason not to, that's exactly what I'm going to do. See? I knew you couldnít. I can't, either, so I'm going to go take a shower. Your things will be here. I hope you like the color.
Marianna: Anything will be fine.
Ric: No, just anything wouldn't be good enough for you.
Jax: Been to every train station, bus station -- even went to the docks and the airport -- no sign of him.
Carly: Oh, great.
Jax: You know, he could hiding from me.
Carly: You really think he ran away?
Jax: I don't know. Just -- it doesn't make any sense that one of Sonny's enemies snatched him up and not Morgan, okay, and that nobody has contacted Sonny or Jason by now.
Carly: He was really angry at for being in his room. What was he hiding, Jax? What did he take with him?
Jax: Okay, you're working yourself up.
Carly: No, I'm not! I am just trying to find a clue so we can figure out where he is, okay? I mean, I -- I can remember him walking out the door and he would barely look at me. He just waved, and I didn't get a chance to tell him I loved him. Every child should know that their parents love them no matter what they do!
Jax: Michael knows that you love him.
Jax: Yes, of course he does.
Carly: Then why would he worry us like this? If he were okay, why wouldn't he call?
Jax: You know, Carly, you have the best instincts in the world. What are they -- what are they telling you? Hmm?
Carly: They're telling me that he is cold and he is scared and he wants to come home.
Man: Drop anchor.
Second Man: I hate these small, crappy towns -- always only one bar open.
First Man: Yeah -- and both women inside run the other way when you walk in.
Second Man: Funny. Come on, give me a hand.
Jerry: I got word from some of my overseas contacts. It appears that when Carly and I went to the great lengths that we did in Caracas to relieve you of the murder charges against Lorenzo Alcazar by proving that he was still alive, we did a better job than we thought.
Jason: What are you talking about?
Jerry: Well, it appears that Lorenzo Alcazar has been making withdrawals from several bank accounts in Venezuela for the past few months.
[Knock on door]
Marianna: Oh -- oh.
Trevor: You work fast, don't you? But apparently you have forgotten just exactly who you're working for.
Ric: Is there a problem here?
Jax: You haven't touched any of the food I brought you.
Carly: Do you think that you can sneak health food to me just because I'm upset?
Jax: No, just because you're pregnant. You have to eat.
Carly: Hello? Hello?
Alexis: Hey. Hey, it's me. Sonny had to leave.
Kate: Olivia -- I'm so glad you're okay.
Johnny: Claudia, is that you?
Sonny: No, it's me -- and this is for Kate.
Patrick: I'm sorry, there's nothing else we can do -- your son has slipped into a coma.
Sam: Get off --
Sam: Get off me!
Sam: Who are you?
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Sonny: The next one's for Michael, and this time I won't miss.
Carly: Michael, honey, is that you?
Man: Hey, you --
Sam: You're dead.
Diego: And here I am. For you, it's the beginning of the end. You're going to die, Sam!
