Robin: Okay, we need a diversion.
Patrick: Epiphany doesn't do diversions.
Robin: What if we created some crisis at the hospital that only Epiphany could solve?
Patrick: She runs that place so well, even when she's not there, she's still organized.
Robin: Right. What if I sent her out for some weird craving of mine, something rare and -- and healthy or something really good, like barbecued calamari.
Patrick: Hey, focus. First of all, Epiphany probably knows somebody that grills squid for a living. Second of all, she would get suspicious. Now -- okay, what if we did something with this whole medication scare at the hospital? You know, when she gave Nikolas the drugs for his seizure and they didn't work.
Robin: That investigation is closed.
Patrick: I know, but what if we -- what if we asked her to look back into it, like people are getting contacted and she needs to look over the records and stuff?
Robin: That's really good, because then she would love to show up Dr. Ford because of something that he missed. You didn't lock the door.
Patrick: My mistake.
Epiphany: I'm calling the police commissioner.
Patrick: No, you know what? I didn't come here to see Robin, Epiphany. I came here to see you.
Kate: Carly, it was purely a business decision to have the photo shoot here.
Carly: No, it wasnít. You were sending me a message. My husband's fair game if I don't stay away from Sonny.
Maxie: This is not going good.
Kate: You're embarrassing yourself, Carly. You're making a mockery of your marriage and of your husband.
Lulu: Not good at all.
Alexis: Why is it that no one knocks here?
Ric: Well, I did, but obviously, you didn't answer.
Jerry: Which, to someone with a modicum of tact, would indicate that the district attorney is otherwise engaged.
Ric: Oh, well, what passes for Jerry's wit and charm should play very well with the press.
Ric: Yes, and the state representatives, who are on their way up here right now for a photo op.
Spinelli: "Sporadic constrictions of the small surface arteries will cause lividity and dark rings under the eyes." I have one of the telltale symptoms. I have -- I have dark rings under my eyes.
Claudia: Spinelli, we didn't sleep last night. It's normal.
Spinelli: Why did we not sleep last night? Why are we under a 24-hour quarantine? Because I exposed us to a highly contagious form of Asian ague.
Claudia: This is not your fault.
Spinelli: Gosh, and now all we can do is sit around and wait for the symptoms to manifest themselves. Dangerous and sudden spike in temperature? Paroxysms of chills and fevers leading to a drenching sweat and possible --
Jason: Just calm down, Spinelli.
Claudia: Leave him alone.
Jason: He's making himself sick.
Spinelli: I sincerely hope I am not susceptible. Oh.
Claudia: What is it?
Spinelli: This disease that we've all been exposed to has a most pernicious and unwelcome side effect.
Claudia: What other side effects does this weird contagious disease have?
Jason: Please don't encourage him.
Spinelli: No, Vixenella has a right to know what I have wrought, for it is my fault for exposing her and you and I to this dread illness, for foolishly trying to emulate the chairman of suave, affecting an Aussie accent, imbibing distilled spirits so that Maxie would see me more than a hopelessly inept dweeb, that I might storm her barricade, so to speak.
Claudia: Proving my point yet again that love kills, or in the very least can make you really sick.
Jason: Nobody's getting sick.
Claudia: Don't you want to know what strange side effects we're in for? Sprouting horns? Sudden craving for human flesh?
Claudia: That's it?
Spinelli: Deep and prolonged delirium, during which the afflicted may ramble and divulge private thoughts and deeply guarded secrets.
Alexis: How could you call a press conference without consulting me?
Jerry: There is no press conference.
Jerry: No, it's obvious that Ric is employing theatrics.
Ric: Look, you're not always going to get advanced warning, Alexis. Come on, you are the district attorney. You are the most highly respected representative of law enforcement in the city. If your relationships can't stand up to scrutiny, maybe you want to reevaluate.
Alexis: You've made your point, Ric.
Jerry: Yes, etiquette would have dictated a simple and tactful withdrawal, Sir, and yours is minutes overdue.
Ric: I need to speak to Alexis.
Jerry: Yes, and so would I, and I was here first, so if you need to find the door, you know, I'll be happy to assist.
Alexis: No, Jerry, it's all right. It's probably better if I talk to him myself, but thank you.
Jerry: All right, if that's what you want, darling, of course.
Alexis: I know how you feel. I know that's not going to change, but you need to respect my privacy and stay the hell out of it.
Patrick: Your mother and I make a good team.
Robin: Mm, this food is so good.
Patrick: It's really good.
Robin: You better enjoy this, kiddo, because once you get here, we're going to eat very healthy.
Patrick: That's too bad. How long do you think Epiphany will be gone for?
Robin: A while, I hope. I have to say, though, I feel bad about sending her on a wild goose chase.
Patrick: Yeah, well, maybe it isnít. You know, maybe she'll review the charts, and maybe she'll find something that somebody else missed. Maybe -- maybe Epiphany will be a hero.
Robin: So maybe we did a good thing.
Patrick: If it buys us some time, yeah, we did a good thing.
Robin: Would that be you talking me into having sex?
[Pounding on door]
Nadine: Can you believe the way the police commissioner was talking to Dr. Drake?
Cassius: Well, if you ask me, that cop is paranoid.
Leyla: Patrick is not used to being talked to like that. That's for sure.
Nadine: Ah, he must be head over heels in love with her to put up with that. Oh, sorry. That was insensitive.
Leyla: It's okay. It stings a little bit, but I have to admit, I'm over Patrick. I'm happy he found his way back to Robin. It's what he wanted all along.
Nadine: I wish everyone were like you.
Leyla: Nobody wants to be the rebound girl. Trust me.
Nadine: Yeah, but you've accepted it instead of hoping for more.
Nikolas: Hoping for more of what?
Nadine: Oh, Nikolas, hi. I didn't expect to see you here.
Nikolas: Why not? I'm not giving up on the clinic. I hope you're not.
Carly: Kate wants to rub it in my face that you are a partner in this magazine with her, and you are going to back her no matter what I say. It's no accident that she picked this hotel for the photo shoot.
Kate: It's ridiculous in so many ways I don't even know where to begin.
Carly: And now, she's talking down to me.
Kate: And I'm not supposed to respond?
Carly: Well, that's the point, right? You get a rise out of me, so I act all crazy, like this isn't about what Alexis said last night about me and Sonny. Jax, you know how I feel about Sonny has nothing to do with us.
Kate: Carly, do you hear yourself? You are standing here with your husband, defending your relationship with another man.
Maxie: You are determined to make this a mess for me just because your boyfriend wants to take me out on a date.
Lulu: Johnny was only mad at me for making that bet with you.
Maxie: I don't have time to deal with this, okay. Why don't you go to the lab and pick up the proofs?
Lulu: Are you sure you can handle all this?
Maxie: Yes, I don't want you irritating Dakota so much that she walks out on the shoot. I can cover until you get back.
Maxie: Is there anything else I can get for you?
Claudia: This could make for a very interesting experience. Imagine if the man of few words got delirious and suddenly started spilling his deep, dark secrets.
Jason: Or if you did.
Claudia: Plague central.
Johnny: Okay, is this some kind of joke? Are you working some angle or what?
Claudia: No, everything I left you on the machine is completely true. I'm in quarantine for 24 hours. I was exposed to some rare form of Asian jungle fever.
Johnny: Are you okay?
Claudia: Yes, I feel fine. I don't have any symptoms yet. The worst part about it is the people I'm stuck with. Sorry, make that the person I'm stuck with. But you know me. I'll find some way to make the best of it.
Patrick: Okay, Epiphany, I know what you're thinking now. There's something you need to understand. See, while --
Robin: This is my apartment. This is my pregnancy, and from now on, I call the shots.
Ric: All right, look, we've been working well together as parents, right? I think it's important that the girls continue to see us getting along, you know?
Alexis: You should have thought about that before you pulled a stunt like telling me the press is about to descend on me in my office.
Ric: Come on, so it was a little heavy-handed -- all right, a lot heavy-handed. But Alexis, the look on your face told it all.
Alexis: My personal life is none of your business, okay?
Ric: Do I have to start listing everything that Jerry has done?
Alexis: No, and that would be very wise, considering you're the one who let Anthony Zacchara loose, so you're not in any position to judge.
Ric: Okay, I'm not judging, and I'm not begrudging you a life outside of the kids and work.
Alexis: Look, I know you think I'm an idiot and that I'm susceptible.
Ric: No, I think you're a beautiful and desirable woman, and it is very easy for you to believe that Jerry is sincere with all this. But make no mistake -- if it came down to it, he'd turn on you in a heartbeat.
Jax: With all due respect, how I feel about Carly's ongoing relationship with Sonny is completely irrelevant here.
Carly: It's none of your business, Kate.
Jax: However, I do agree with Carly. You can't just set up a photo shoot in the lobby without telling us or warning any of the staff.
Carly: Yeah, the world doesn't revolve around you.
Jax: That is true, but it does revolve around the magazine. Now I didn't just invest in a business. I invested in Kate because of her proven track record, and if she says that this photo shoot is important for the success of the magazine, then I have to listen to that.
Kate: Yes, Carly, I have too much riding on this to make it a --
Jax: And since we're already set up, I would really appreciate it if you would just let them continue.
Robin: Epiphany, I -- I appreciate everything you've done. You're -- you're a dedicated and caring nurse.
Epiphany: Well, that's a lot more than I can say for the patient.
Robin: But I didn't ask to be your patient. You know, I didn't hire you. My Uncle Mac did out of concern and because he's insanely overprotective of me.
Epiphany: But that's no reason to send a health professional on a wild goose chase.
Patrick: Yeah, but you know what? But I did have legitimate concerns about the meds being dispensed at the hospital.
Epiphany: Then you shouldn't have used it as an excuse to get rid of me. Not that I believed you, either one of you.
Robin: I'm sorry. This hasn't been fair to you. I am grateful for everything that you did, but the truth is, I wanted Patrick here all along, and I just don't need anyone else.
Epiphany: I just came to get my suitcases. You know, next time, why don't you have the guts to speak up? You two are about to become parents, and I think it's about time that you start acting like grownups.
[Knocking on door]
Lulu: I know what you're thinking.
Johnny: You want to bet? Oh, but on second thought, that hasn't worked out too well for you, has it?
Lulu: Okay, I feel really bad that I sank to Maxie's level and that I was willing to make that wager.
Johnny: Using me as the poker chip.
Lulu: I was just sick of Maxie throwing herself at you, and you were letting her do it.
Johnny: I didn't do anything.
Lulu: That -- exactly. Exactly. It was like you were leaving the door open and -- and sending these subtle signals.
Johnny: Okay, if that's what you want to think, then --
Lulu: I mean, God knows, the little slut doesn't need any encouragement, but this is just as much your fault.
Johnny: I don't send signals.
Lulu: You're sending them right now, acting like you can blow me off, and I'm not going to let you do it.
Lulu: Really, because I'm kidnapping you.
Johnny: And what if I don't want to go?
Lulu: Well, I have to warn you, I'm pretty desperate.
Johnny: And what is it you need me to do?
Lulu: I need you to cooperate, and no one will get hurt.
Claudia: Come on, one game. Just something to break up the monotony. It's not like you can catch anything from me you don't already have. What do you say, Mr. Spinelli?
Claudia: Come on.
Spinelli: Um, I lack Stone Cold's prowess. I won't be much of a challenge to Vixenella.
Claudia: Good, that tells me you're a real man, and you're secure in your masculinity. You know those guys that you try to emulate all the time? They should really be trying to be a little bit more like you. All right, ready? You break. Over there. Yeah.
Spinelli: Okay. Hmm, I just got to --
Spinelli: What? No, I think -- I think --
Claudia: Here, here, let me show you. Okay, ready?
Claudia: You want to put it like that. Flip this over here a little bit more.
Claudia: Then you want to relax, relax.
Claudia: But firm, firm here.
Spinelli: Firm? Okay.
Claudia: Do you feel that?
Spinelli: Yeah, I feel it.
Claudia: Feel that.
Spinelli: I feel it.
Claudia: That's good.
Claudia: You ready?
Spinelli: This is kind of funny. Ah! Woo.
Claudia: Wow! Wow, sweet Jesus!
Spinelli: How did I do that?
Claudia: Good job, Spinelli. Okay, get another one. Come on.
Spinelli: Okay, okay.
Claudia: You're stripes. Hit another one.
Spinelli: Well, um.
Claudia: Here, let me.
Spinelli: Okay, okay.
Claudia: Ready? Bend down a little bit more.
Spinelli: Okay. This is fun. [Laughs] What? Hey.
Jason: Just leave him alone.
Claudia: You want to take me on?
Sam: Here we are, home again.
Lucky: You don't say that with much enthusiasm.
Sam: I don't? All my life I think I've always felt like I wanted to feel settled. Now that I am, I kind of miss being able to just move on.
Lucky: I know how you feel. The road makes things easier. Or the sea, in your case.
Sam: Yeah, I don't know. You know, I always kind of feel like I was searching for something, maybe money, but no. I kind of feel like I've realized now that I was always searching for the one thing that would make me happy.
Lucky: Are you? Are you happy?
Sam: Whoa, when did this conversation get so deep and philosophical? I think it must be the jetlag.
Lucky: No, no, no, we didn't change time zones.
Sam: Oh, don't be literal. I'm going to go get us something to drink.
Lucky: Hey, you know what? And then when you come back, you're going to tell me what makes you happy.
Sam: Where is this coming from?
Lucky: I don't know. You know, just being on this trip, you -- I don't know. You sing, you laugh, you know, get in bar fights, just so relaxed. It's like you were a different person, and I just kind of wonder if there's anything that I can do to make you happy like that.
Sam: You do make me happy, and I -- I really do like the way that we are together. It's just that when I get too involved, I get possessive. I mean, even -- even desperate at times, and things can get ugly, as you know, and I just -- I don't want that to happen with you. You are like this amazing surprise, the guy I never expected to be with, and I just -- I don't want to do anything to mess that up.
Lucky: I don't either. You know, I just -- you know, I think we're both afraid to take the next step, because we're in limbo, but this trip just kind of showed me the future I think we can have together.
Robin: Epiphany was right.
Patrick: You're supposed to be avoiding stress. Stop beating yourself up about it.
Robin: I should have just been up-front about it.
Patrick: Robin, you didn't hire her. Your overbearing uncle with control issues did.
Robin: He can't help it. Mac raised me.
Patrick: Well, you're not his little girl anymore. He's got to let you go.
Robin: Okay, for a moment, just try to imagine, you know, a young man, you know, about your age, player, doesn't really want to settle down -- I know it's hard to imagine.
Patrick: Okay, okay, got it.
Robin: Okay, so that was Mac, and then all of a sudden, he had to become my guardian and de facto father. I mean, he wasn't really equipped to deal with a teenager with raging hormones, much less one that had just been diagnosed with HIV, and he was with me every single day, every step of the way, finding me the best doctors and the whole time blaming himself. I mean, it didn't matter how many times I told him that he couldn't have been a better parent or guardian to me. He still believes that it's his fault that I have HIV, and so yeah, I mean, he worries a lot, and he's a little overbearing, but I know that it all comes out of love.
[Knocking on door]
Mac: Robin? Robin, it's Mac. Look, I know Epiphany quit. I better not find Patrick in there.
Nadine: I haven't given up on the clinic, not for a second. I have a few ideas, actually.
Nikolas: Really? All right, well, I'd love to hear them.
Leyla: Cassius, come help me with the charts.
Cassius: What -- what is going on?
Leyla: They need their privacy.
Nikolas: Yeah, sounds great. I think a free immunization program is a -- is an excellent idea, and we could probably even get something in place before flu season.
Nadine: Great, and you know, offering prenatal screenings and care for young kids will definitely get the mayor to back off. He doesn't want to look like a jerk for turning us down.
Nikolas: You're pretty good at this.
Jason: Forget it.
Claudia: What's the matter? Are you afraid you'll get shown up by a woman?
Jason: The less I deal with you, the better.
Claudia: Okay, Jackal? It's just you and me.
Jason: Spinelli, donít.
Claudia: Come on, we're under quarantine. I'm going stir crazy. What tragedy is going to befall us if we play a little pool?
Spinelli: While the Jackal is always grateful for Stone Cold's wise counsel, Vixenella's instruction in the art of billiards is not only beneficial -- it's enjoyable.
Claudia: That's it, isn't it? You don't want me and Spinelli to have any fun. You want us to sit here and be miserable like you. Let me ask you a question. Have you ever enjoyed anything, or were you always like this?
Lulu: Oh, my gosh. I can't believe how fast you were going.
Johnny: Well, it is a speed boat, Lulu.
Lulu: You are the only person who drives crazier than I do.
Johnny: You were pretty crazy.
Lulu: My heart is still pounding.
Johnny: That's a good thing.
Lulu: You know what I mean.
Johnny: Yeah, I do.
Lulu: You're smiling. Does that mean you're not mad at me anymore?
Johnny: Well, I am a hostage. I'd hate to argue with my captor.
Lulu: Actually, since I am in charge --
Johnny: Okay, what will you have me do now?
Lulu: And just let me get this out.
Kate: Yoji, we're trying to go for youthful vitality. Right now, Dakota looks like she had a full frontal lobotomy. What are we going to do?
Photographer: Um --
Kate: Some time before she's eligible for social security, please.
Maxie: What if we lose the jacket?
Kate: Yes, yes, and take the shoes off and sling them over your shoulder.
Maxie: You're so calm. How do you do it?
Kate: Oh, Maxie. This is nothing. I remember when I was an assistant on my first big shoot. The supermodel, who shall remain nameless, showed up after partying for three days straight. She was a total train wreck.
Maxie: What did you do?
Kate: I dumped her head in a bucket of water. I poured a gallon of coffee down her throat, and I found the biggest speakers I could and blasted the Ramones at full volume.
Maxie: The Ramones?
Kate: The photographer ended up winning awards for those shoots. Yoji, I want to see some of the prints.
Ric: Hotel not getting too many reservations, I guess, huh?
Carly: What's up, Ric?
Ric: Look, I've been purposely and consciously avoiding you up until now because I know everything that you've been dealing with. And I don't want to make things worse, especially when Michael is in the hospital.
Carly: That's tactful of you.
Ric: I'm very sorry about what happened to your son, Carly. I mean, I can't imagine what -- what you must be dealing with. If there's anything that I can ever do to help you, please ask.
[Knocking on door]
Alexis: Hi, hi.
Alexis: It's the man that I truly love.
Jax: Wow. Well, special occasion?
Alexis: Oh, no, not exactly.
Jax: Right, of course. I'll just assume that they're from a secret admirer then.
Alexis: Yeah. I can't lie to you. This is really awkward. I know that you know that I know that you know I slept with your brother.
[Some of transcript missing]
Mac: The guy is not responsible enough to take care of you, much less the baby in the future. You're kidding yourself if you think you can count on Patrick Drake.
Patrick: You know what, Mac, with all due respect, you're full of crap.
Lulu: I was an idiot last night. I played right into Maxie's hands.
Johnny: Forget about Maxie.
Lulu: It's kind of hard, because she's made it no secret that she's after you.
Johnny: I'm not interested.
Lulu: But you said that you were going to go out with her.
Johnny: Yes, because I was pissed about that whole bet that you made.
Lulu: Okay, well, if you're not pissed anymore, does that mean that you'll call it off?
Johnny: No, I'd rather you trust me; I'd rather show Maxie that her plan didn't work.
Lulu: Uh, I hate insecure girls that are possessive and I hate that Maxie brings it out in me. I want to trust you. I do trust you, it just feels weird -- scary weird.
Johnny: Okay, you have no problem opening up a speedboat to full throttle, but Maxie's lame come-on scares you? Come on.
Lulu: It's crazy.
Johnny: It is.
Lulu: I should feel sorry for you. You know, while Maxie's making lame attempts to seduce you, you can think about this.
Carly: You're working for Anthony Zacchara now, aren't you? That's why you're here, you're going to go up and visit him in his suite.
Ric: Mr. Zacchara had nothing to do with Michaelís shooting.
Carly: But he's Jason's enemy, and he was Sonny's enemy before Sonny retired. You know, I believe that you were sincere when you gave your condolences for Michael. Just like I believed you were sincere when you saved my life after the cannery exploded and I thanked you for that. So of course I'm grateful. But when you ask me if there's anything you can do for me, the answer is no.
Jax: Well, I'm certainly not here to judge you, I'm just -- I was concerned about you after what happened at the Haunted Star last night.
Alexis: I'm very sorry about the timing of that meltdown, it was inappropriate and unclassy and I had no idea that the woman you were standing next to was the new editor-in-chief of "Couture Magazine."
Jax: Oh, Giselle? No, it's fine.
Alexis: You were right to disavow yourself from the lunatic.
Jax: Oh, no, I said with great pride that you were my ex-wife.
Alexis: Oh, Jax, she's direct competition to your magazine. Why did you do that?
Jax: I don't care about Giselle; I was more worried about you. But before I could do anything, my brother came in and you didn't seem to object, so I didn't want to interfere. But by the looks of things, perhaps I should have.
Alexis: Actually, you did me a huge favor.
Claudia: I've done research on you. I love research. The internet's opened up a whole new world.
Spinelli: Oh, the Jackal's world, you know, where he is master, dominating the multitudes.
Claudia: I've actually picked up a few hacking tricks myself.
Spinelli: I had no idea you were one of my people.
Claudia: That is because you judged me from the outside. You thought that I was a mindless bimbo.
Spinelli: No, no, no, no -- just because most cyber-literates are socially inept with low self-esteem and bad hair. But you have great hair, so --
Claudia: I think you're really cute.
Spinelli: Really? Well, I mean, you know, even on first acquaintance it was very clear to me that you were a real flesh and blood version of the most toughened, agile, cyber-babe.
Jason: Spinelli, please.
Claudia: What? Come on, what is your problem? He's trying to get to know me here, instead of slapping a label on me the way you did. You have to take the time to know the facts about a person, the way I did with you. That's why I know a lot more about you than you know about me.
Sam: To staying in the moment.
Lucky: Is that how you want it?
Sam: You've got enough commitments in your life. I don't think you need another one.
Lucky: I think that would be my call.
Sam: Okay, can I say something to you without you getting totally defensive?
Sam: And I say this with total respect and admiration, but I think you are going to kill yourself trying to get out from underneath your father's shadow.
Lucky: How does this have anything to do with my father?
Sam: Okay, let me explain. Luke, he is always with you. He took you -- you and your mother all over the world, and you stayed here in Port Charles. He breaks the law, you become a cop. He's a hit and miss father, you're the most dedicated father on the planet. You prove to Cameron and Jake every single day that they are wanted and valued, but I can't stop wondering if maybe you're trying to give them everything that your father didn't give you.
Lucky: My dad was a great father, especially when I was younger. We were very close.
Sam: I know, but, Lucky, he bailed on you, emotionally and physically. And I think that you are determined not to do that to those boys.
Lucky: You're probably right about Cameron and Jake. You're probably even right about me and my dad. But I don't understand what that has to do with you and me having a future.
Sam: Okay, look, any future has to include Cameron and Jake, they come first in your life.
Sam: And so does their mother.
Mac: You see, I knew you were hiding here somewhere, which only proves my point. Instead of acting like a responsible father-to-be, you're skulking around like a teenager.
Robin: Wait a minute; the skulking was my idea, to avoid a testosterone-filled moment just like this one. I mean, I'm not supposed to be stressed out, remember?
Mac: Right, yes, and that's why you're coming home with me, to get away from the stress.
Patrick: Okay, you know what, Mac? I get that you're worried about Robin, I get that in your mind nobody's ever going to be good enough for her. I get that because I may have a daughter, and I can see myself acting almost as crazy as you.
Mac: Right, then you'll listen to me when --
Patrick: No, Mac, you listen to me, okay? I love Robin, I support her any way that I can. And I'm the father of that baby. I'm not going to let you run me out of their lives.
Johnny: It's a lot better than the last time I was kidnapped.
Lulu: Ugh, I don't want to think about that.
Johnny: You know, you're all I thought about that whole time, it's what got me through.
Johnny: I may have even written a song for you. It's whatever came into my head when I thought of you.
Lulu: Oh, so what are you thinking about right now?
Johnny: The voices.
Lulu: The voices?
Lulu: Okay, what -- what are the voices saying?
Lulu: Dunk me? Dunk me -- no, no, no, no! I can't swim, I can't swim, I can't swim.
Johnny: Is that true?
Lulu: No, it's a lie, I can swim. Can you?
Johnny: I can swim.
Lulu: Okay, good.
Alexis: Jerry and I have been doing this dance for months.
Jax: You mean, he's been pursuing you relentlessly.
Alexis: I protested. There's a fine line between enjoying the game and running from it. And in all fairness, I was enjoying the game.
Jax: Right, while ignoring the, uh, difficult truths.
Alexis: I didn't ignore them, believe me. But I have come to see why you might have stayed loyal to your brother.
Alexis: I was unglued and terrified last night, and he held it together. He told me that I could trust him about something, and I do.
[Knocking on door]
Jerry: Is it safe to return?
Claudia: You weren't born Jason Morgan, you were born Jason Quartermaine. You're actually from a filthy rich family. You had a bad car accident, and now you have brain damage.
Jason: I know what happened. I don't need to hear you rehash it.
Claudia: A little touchy about the whole brain damage thing.
Jason: Yeah, you know what, maybe I am. Maybe I realize how lucky I am to be walking around when Michaelís going to be laying in a coma for the rest of his life because some piece of garbage tried to kill his father!
Claudia: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.
Jason: For -- for what?
Claudia: I didn't make the connection.
Jason: Sounded more like guilt to me.
Claudia: My family didn't have anything to do with Michaelís shooting. How many times do I have to tell you that?
Jason: You know what? If you get delirious, you get this fever, you start spilling your guts, I might just try asking you again.
Sam: Look, I went to go see Elizabeth the other day.
Sam: Just relax, though, because we didn't fight, we didn't argue, it was actually the best conversation --
Lucky: Then why am I just now hearing about this?
Sam: Because I had to go on impulse. You had to cancel with me again to go be with Cameron and Jake. And I can't help but think that there's got to be something that I can do to help, but I'm so segregated from that part of your life. The boys are not allowed around me, I'm not allowed around them.
Lucky: Listen, if I made you feel like that, I'm really sorry.
Sam: No, no, look, we both know why Elizabeth did not want me around, and she was totally justified. With that said, I again went to apologize to her. And guess what? She accepted my apology, and she actually told me that she thought that I was good for you.
Lucky: She's right.
Sam: However, she's really worried that Cam might get confused if I'm a part of the mix, you know? He knows that mom and dad love him, so, logically, where do I fit in?
Lucky: Is that what you are wondering, because Elizabeth and I are the parents?
Sam: No, no, no, no, Lucky, don't, you don't have to deny or explain anything. I know that relationships with exes get really complicated, so I sort of had to think things through myself. You know, do I want to be a part of the boys lives? Do I want to be daddy's girlfriend?
Lucky: Are you?
Sam: I was going to talk it over with you and then we went on the road trip and I didn't have to. Gosh, Lucky, I am emotionally a coward and it -- and it just goes back to the same thing, you know? I feel like when I start to invest, clearly they are going to disappear, so I sort of do things backwards. And I kind of feel like I kept distance between us just to sort of hold on to you.
Lucky: You know, I think you're making this way too complicated. You know, I know we're both scared because we've both been hurt. But at some point we're going to have to start trusting each other or give up. So I'm kind of voting for trusting each other.
Sam: I -- I guess I'll try.
Patrick: I'm struggling with the idea of being a father right now, Mac. I've been honest about that from the beginning. Maybe too honest. But the one constant through all of this is my love for Robin. I love her more every day. And as far as taking care of her, my heart dropped when I saw her on the floor, and I will never let that happen again. I am committed to her having a healthy pregnancy and giving her all the support she needs. So you know what, Mac, Robin's not going home with you. I'm staying here and I'm going to take care of her. You're more than welcome to come and visit if you want, but just --
Mac: Uh, are you through?
Patrick: Yeah, I think I am.
Mac: Good, then, uh, you're under arrest.
Patrick: What are you talking about?
Mac: Turn around.
[Handcuff key jingling]
Jax: Alexis was just telling me what a great comfort you've been to her.
Jerry: Yes, I was glad I was there when she needed me. I mean, it was an awkward situation last night. Fortunately, things are much calmer now.
Jax: You helped with that, obviously. She was also telling me that, uh, she's clear about all your flaws, but she still feels that she can trust you.
Jerry: Yes, she can. You have a problem with that?
Jax: [Laughs] Do I have a problem with that?
Photographer: Can you not see we're working here?
Kate: No, actually, it might be interesting -- a random woman walking through the middle of a shot. We'll have to wait until we see the proofs. Maxie, why don't you give Mrs. Spencer a release?
Tracy: Lulu is getting way too close with John Zacchara. I need you to talk to her. She doesn't listen to me.
Carly: What happened?
Tracy: Well, she's down at the Quartermaine family boathouse with him even as we speak.
Johnny: Got you!
Lulu: Don't throw me back in.
Johnny: Okay, then I'll have to find something else to do with you.
Lulu: Oh, really? Oh, I'm hearing some voices right now in my head.
Johnny: What do they say?
Claudia: I read in the paper that you killed the guy who shot Michael. That must have given you some small sense of satisfaction, at least.
Spinelli: Ian Devlin was a fiend indeed who was, actually, attacking Maximista when Stone Cold took the opportunity --
Jason: I can't, I can't listen to this.
Spinelli: My humblest apologies, Stone Cold, if my words upset you.
Claudia: You know what? It's not Spinelli's fault. Jason, hey, wake up.
Spinelli: Stone Cold?
Claudia: Oh, my God, he's burning up.
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Maxie: What a perfect day for a swim.
Patrick: I'm not stalking Robin.
Sonny: You almost done?
Kate: I'm all yours.
Claudia: Sit up, so I can take your clothes off.
