Nikolas: Hi, there.
Nikolas: Welcome to the Emily Bowen Quartermaine free clinic.
Sam: I've got to say, this place looks amazing. I'm so sorry I haven't come by to see it sooner.
Nikolas: No, actually, it's probably best that you waited, though. We've had a few, shall I say, setbacks the first weeks.
Sam: Setbacks? What kind of setbacks?
Nikolas: Come on, I'll tell you.
Sam: Okay. Is everything okay?
Nadine: So, exam rooms are stocked. Supply closet's been inventoried. All we need now are some patients.
Matt: Yeah, definitely. Who is that?
Matt: Well, if she seeking medical attention, she should be speaking to a doctor, not a trust fund baby who thinks he can fix everything with money.
Nadine: You should be grateful that Nikolas was willing to throw some of that money your way, because without his generosity, you wouldn't have a fellowship.
Woman: Por favor, ayudanos.
Matt: What happened?
Mother: Laedicina no esta funcionando. Se esta poniendo fuego.
Sam: Wait -- she's saying that the medication is making her daughter worse.
Clarice: This is fantastic, Kate.
Kate: Oh, thank you, Clarice. So, tell me. Exactly how many times has Giselle called you since you left "Couture"?
Clarice: Oh, six or seven times -- a day.
Kate: Okay, see, I'm not surprised. Because you were practically running the place before I scooped you up. And now that I have, Giselle might actually have to come up with an original idea.
Clarice: Well, thank you again for giving me this opportunity.
Kate: Please. You earned it.
Clarice: I'll be back in ten minutes with your coffee.
Kate: No, no, no. You will not. As my accessories editor, it is your job to fill the pages of "Crimson" with the hot trend ideas, not fetch lukewarm coffee. That is why I have not one but two assistants -- who never seem to show up for work.
Clarice: Maxie and Lulu were both here earlier. I just sent them off to run some errands. I hope you don't mind.
Kate: No, actually. That's fine, as long as my to-do list was taken care of first. I had an important delivery scheduled this morning. And if Sonny has not received it, there will be hell to pay.
Sonny: Last time I checked, you don't work for me anymore, Max. Even if you did, arranging flowers isn't part of the job description.
Max: Right. Well, that's what I wanted to talk to you about. Milo and I, we -- we don't feel right working for anyone but you. So, if you'll have us back, we can start at any time.
Sonny: Yeah, yeah. I'll think about that. What's with the flowers?
Max: Oh, these are from Kate.
Johnny: I got nothing to say without my lawyer.
Lucky: I'm not here to question you. Not that I could, because I've been taken off the case.
Johnny: Then what do you want?
Lucky: It doesn't take much to figure out what you and Logan were fighting about. I'm only concerned about how this is affecting my sister.
Lulu: Well, if you really want to know, you should be asking me, not Johnny.
Lulu: Johnny is in lockup for something he didn't do, so don't make it worse by shoving a lecture down his throat.
Lucky: Johnny had the means and the motive. How can you be so sure he didn't kill Logan?
Johnny: Lulu has faith in me.
Lucky: I want to hear it from her.
Lulu: You don't know Johnny like I do. He would not kill somebody in cold blood.
Lucky: You have to admit, Johnny had one hell of a role model growing up.
Johnny: I'm nothing like my father.
Lucky: You want to believe that Johnny is innocent -- that Logan didn't die because of some obsessive crush he had on you? There's certainly enough evidence to build one hell of a case against him.
Lulu: If you are finished, I would like to spend some time alone with Johnny before he's taken back to his cell.
Lucky: Well, he's going to be questioned all morning. So you're going to have to come back later.
Lulu: Fine. I will see you in a few hours.
Nadine: BP is 80 over 50. Temp 104.
Matt: She seems a little responsive to painful stimuli. What meds has she been given?
Nikolas: But from where?
Sam: Well, she said that she got them from Mercy three days ago, and then she took Isabel in this morning because they weren't working, and they turned her away.
Sam: She said because they said that they needed to give the medication time to work.
Matt: Well, this girl has a serious infection that appears to have gone completely untreated. So, if we don't get this under control, she could die.
Kate: I mean, really. She has outdone herself. I just can't wait for Sonny to see me walking down the aisle in this.
Clarice: Why not build the anticipation for Sonny as well as the readers by running the sketches in the second issue? Give them all a taste of what's to come.
Kate: Okay, see, right there. See, ideas like this. That is why you will never be fetching coffee again.
[Knock on door]
Diane: Clarice. So is the rumor true? Has Kate finally persuaded you to leave "Couture"?
Clarice: Well, it didn't take much convincing. Giselle was a nightmare to work for.
Diane: Oh, God. I can only imagine what you were made to endure. The magazine certainly went downhill after she took over. I might just be biased because of my friendship with the former editor. Can I have a word with you?
Kate: Of course.
Clarice: I have some phone calls to make.
Kate: Okay, but when Maxie and Lulu get back, you make sure to tell them you have more important things to do now than answer the phones. All right, so what is it this time? You got a weekend getaway? A fabulous dinner in the city?
Diane: Believe it or not, I'm not here for samples.
Diane: I know, I know. Surprising.
Diane: Although, I wouldn't mind sneaking a peak at Jean-Paul’s fall line.
Kate: Oh, yeah. You and everybody else.
Kate: Well, I might be getting some samples on Friday. If you drop by, I might be able to give you that sneak peek.
Diane: Okay, okay. Don't tease. See?
Diane: That's why Giselle could never hold a candle to you. Not only are you an icon, but you are a veritable fashion fairy godmother raining couture down on my closet.
Kate: Okay, that's enough. Thank you very much. So, what can I do for you in the meantime?
Diane: Well, I am not in the practice of meddling. In fact --
[Kate clears throat]
Diane: Far be it from me to tell anyone what to do.
Kate: Okay, clearly, that is why you're here, Diane. So just go on. Say what you have to say.
Diane: All right, if you insist. I think Sonny Corinthos is the worst thing that's ever happened to you. Having said that, it is clear that you are head over heels in love with the man. So trust me. As one who has dealt with the man under extremely difficult, often emotional circumstances, you are handling your fiancé all wrong.
Sonny: Did you or Milo talk to Jason about coming back to work for me?
Max: Well, I wanted to talk to you first and be sure you're okay with it. I know you don't want guards, so maybe you could think of Milo and I as drivers with security qualifications.
Sonny: You want to date Diane while you're working here?
Max: I was hoping you could leave my personal life out of it.
Sonny: Is that a yes, Max?
Max: I want to come back to work for you, boss. All right? And Milo will do whatever I decide. But you can't ask me to give up Diane.
Sonny: Do you think you can focus on work while you're dating my lawyer?
Max: No question.
Sonny: Okay, then you talk to -- talk to Jason.
Max: Sure. I will. What do you want me to talk to him about?
Sonny: About coming back, you and Milo coming back to work for me.
Max: Okay, sure. I -- that would be great. No -- I mean -- that would be great.
Sonny: What do you --
Max: Because I want to come back to work for you. And Milo and I are glad to do that.
Max: But maybe you could talk to Jason, you know?
Sonny: No, no.
Max: Boss to boss kind of thing.
Sonny: No, no, no. It's your decision. You've got to work this out. And you have to understand something, that when you come back to work for me, your loyalty is to me.
Max: Sure, boss. I understand. I'll go tell Jason right now.
Sonny: No, take those. Take the flowers.
Max: What do you want me to do with them?
Sonny: Send them back. If you want to give them to Diane -- but I don't want them. Just take them.
Max: I can't give these to Ms. Miller. I mean, not that she wouldn't love them. They're gorgeous. Boss, Miss Howard got you these. We can't re-gift them. It wouldn't be right. And besides, what are you going to tell her when she asks you where they are?
Sonny: Kate and I, we're not talking at the moment. That's why she sent the flowers, because she thinks that we had a disagreement that can be glossed over by an apology. But the truth is, it's going to take a hell of a lot more to fix our problems.
Sam: She is just a little girl.
Nikolas: I know.
Sam: It just -- it doesn't see fair. Her mother did everything right. She took her to the hospital. She got her treatment. And it didn't make a bit of difference. How does something like this happen? Since when did taking medication become a game of chance?
Nikolas: Since someone saw that there was a profit to be made. Apparently, the counterfeit drug business is quite lucrative. See, people -- people, they introduce the placebos into the market and then sell them at the same cost as the real prescription.
Sam: I know. I -- I have been known to run a scam to make a quick buck, but nothing like this. To take advantage of people's vulnerability, profiting off their sickness is just plain wrong.
Max: Do you want to work things out with Ms. Howard?
Sonny: I love her. You know, that's just the way that is. But it's just -- I'm starting to feel like our worlds don't fit.
Max: Isn't that why you signed everything over to Jason? To prove to Kate that you could keep her safe?
Sonny: Well, that's part of it. I mean -- you know, after Michael got shot, you know, you see your little boy there, laying in a bed in a coma. I mean, things have to change. And I felt like walking away, we -- Kate and could start fresh, we can , you know, build a -- a new life together. But she's got her own life now. So, you know, I don't think she's willing to change.
Max: So where does that leave you?
Sonny: Well, I'll tell you where it doesn't leave me. It doesn't leave me in the background holding Kate's purse while she's, you know, getting her picture taken. That may be good for some people, but I am not going to spend the rest of my life being Kate's lapdog. You know?
Max: Ms. Howard is a high-powered woman, but you don't seriously think that she'd order you around, do you?
Sonny: No, it's not like that, Max. She treats me with respect. And she's worked hard to get where she's at. I'm not trying to take that away, but if she wants me --
Max: Boss --
Sonny: To be in her life, then she's going to have to, you know, give me some room.
Max: Boss, Ms. Howard could have gone back to Manhattan at any time. But she stayed and she found a way to work. That should tell you how much she cares.
Sonny: I'm not saying she doesn't love me.
Max: Cut her little bit of slack. According to Diane, Ms. Howard's got a lot riding on this magazine. Her reputation is on the line.
Max: If "Crimson" fails, she's going to have a hard time finding work anywhere. That's got to be stressful.
Sonny: Her career is one thing, Max. But, you know what? I am not going to look the other way while she's having this pretend affair with Jax for publicity. I will not -- be disrespected like that.
Max: Maybe there's a compromise. That's what marriage is supposed to be about, right?
Diane: Sonny is an extremely proud man. Some would call him arrogant. Most would certainly consider him domineering.
Kate: [Sighs] I am well aware of exactly who Sonny is, and I am proud of his accomplishments. And I think that he's proud of mine.
Diane: Yes, but you seem to be forgetting how possessive the man is. And if I had to guess, I would say he is less than thrilled with the public speculating that you and Jax are sleeping together.
Kate: He has made his feelings on the subject quite clear. Look, Diane, I was hoping that we could have some sort of middle ground, make some sort of compromise so that I could still be seen in public with Jax in order to promote "Crimson" but not detract from my relationship with Sonny.
Maxie: Okay. I picked up the mock-ups from the printer and I made extra copies for the staff meeting.
Clarice: Thank you for taking care of all that.
Maxie: Not a problem. Is Kate here?
Clarice: She got here about 20 minutes ago. I told her that you and Lulu were both running errands, but I don't know how long that excuse will hold. Do you have any idea when Lulu might be in?
Maxie: I -- I don't know. She should be here any minute.
[Elevator door opens]
Lulu: Sorry I'm late.
Clarice: Don't let it happen again. If Kate catches you slacking off, there will be someone else sitting in that desk before you can even start to explain.
Maxie: You really need to get yourself together.
Lulu: Johnny is in lockup for something I did. How am I supposed to live with that?
Johnny: You're sure spending a lot of time in here for someone who's been booted off the case. That's borderline harassment. Maybe I should get my lawyers to look into that.
Lucky: Go ahead. I'll probably walk away with a reprimand. But it'll be worth it knowing that my sister's safe.
Johnny: Okay, there is nothing more important to me in this world than your sister.
Lucky: Then quit being selfish. Logan may have deserved to die like a dog in the street, but she cared about him. She gave him chance after chance. Now he's dead. Probably because of you.
Johnny: Probably. It's going to take a hell of a lot more than "probably" to convict me in a court of law.
Lucky: Yeah, well, my sister is blaming herself. And it's only going to get worse.
Johnny: Don't you think I know that? But there's nothing I can do about that in here.
Jerry: Hello, Commissioner.
Mac: I don't remember asking you to come down for questioning.
Jerry: Well, my business is of a more personal nature. I'm here to see Alexis. Perhaps to offer some distraction, preferably on every available surface that the taxpayers so kindly provided in this office.
Mac: If you think dating Alexis gives you a free pass, you're mistaken.
Jerry: Oh, I don't know. You know, dating a D.A. certainly has its privileges.
Mac: You smug son of a bitch. Someone ought to knock that smile right off your face.
Jerry: That would be illegal, Commissioner.
[Jerry shouts in pain]
Lucky: Everything okay out here?
Mac: Mr. Jacks just lost his balance. I was about to help him up.
Lucky: I've got it.
Mac: No, don't bother. I'll do it.
Jerry: One punch in the name of misguided chivalry can be overlooked. Try it again, I'll put you in traction, police commissioner or not.
Mac: You think you're so smart, Jerry, seducing Alexis to take advantage of her position as D.A.? But eventually, she's going to see right through you.
Jerry: You care to wager on that?
Mac: You're a lousy gambler. You never knew when to cut your losses. Get out of here. Let's go. Come on. Get out of here.
Nikolas: Excuse me. Could you page Dr. Hunter for me? I need to speak to him about that little girl that was brought in here from the clinic.
Nurse: Dr. Hunter turned the case over to an attending pediatrician. I can page Dr. O’Donnell if you'd like.
Nikolas: Okay. Thank you.
Sam: Wait. Do you know where her mother is?
Nurse: The pediatric ICU. Hasn't left the child's side.
Sam: The doctors, they're doing everything they can, right? I mean, they are going to be able to save this little girl?
Nurse: You have to speak to Dr. O’Donnell about that.
Nikolas: All right. Nadine, hi.
Nikolas: How is Isabel?
Nadine: Well, we got her on IV antibiotics and wee trying to bring the fever down, but the infection may have already compromised her nervous system.
Spinelli: Whiskey. Straight up and keep them coming.
Coleman: It's not even ten o'clock in the morning.
Spinelli: Yeah, well, the Jackal's sorrow knows no time limit. It is an all-consuming, life-altering pain that only the stiffest of drinks can hope to alleviate.
Coleman: You start downing whiskey this early, you'll be feeling a hell of a lot worse in a few hours. Why don't you -- why don't you have, like, an orange soda instead?
Spinelli: Perhaps the Jackal was unclear in his intent. He wishes to wallow in despair and therefore require something a little more potent than nectar of the gods.
Coleman: Yeah? Well, you're going to have to go somewhere else. All right? If you get plastered here, you get into trouble, that means I'm going to get into trouble with -- you know, with your boss. I can't afford to be on the bad side of Morgan. I mean -- not that -- [Chuckles] Not that he's got a good side, but --
Spinelli: In truth, Stone Cold has been very gracious and patient in regards to the Jackal. But there is no way that the Zen master can possibly comprehend his grasshopper's ongoing struggle because Stone Cold has the key to tame the wild heart. And although the Jackal has been a dedicated pupil, he still continues to fail miserably in this particular respect, and therefore seeks to drown that said humiliation by imbibing distilled spirits of mass quantity.
Eli: Whoo -- hey, bartender. I would like whiskey, straight up, and you can leave the bottle.
Coleman: Coming right up.
Spinelli: Wait, wait, wait. Why -- why does he get to partake without limit when the Jackal is refused?
Coleman: It's Eli Love. Pay attention. You might learn a thing or two. Mr. Love. Hey. You -- you celebrating or commiserating?
Eli: Well, actually, you can call me Eli and I'm celebrating. I want you to join me.
Coleman: Hey. What are we drinking to, man?
Eli: We're drinking to wealth, health, and women. May they all be as beautiful as the lovely Anna Devane.
Anna: [Sighs loudly]
Robin: Well, hello.
Robin: I'm not even going to bother to ask you how everything went with Eli because that sigh says it all.
Anna: Mm. It was great. [Laughs] It was really good. You know, he is so talented. He played some of his new songs. They are amazing. We connect on such a deep level. It's --
Robin: That's great, Mom.
Anna: Sometimes I have to pinch myself because here's a guy that I worshipped for years, and he digs me. And we wants to spend time with me. And it's so cool. I -- and I'm incredibly lucky, I guess.
Robin: Oh, come on. Eli is the lucky one.
Anna: Yeah. He is. That was very quick thinking, hiding your baby bump with the x-rays.
Robin: Oh, it's no big deal.
Anna: I appreciate the effort.
Anna: Don't for one second think I'm sorry about this baby. I am so happy for you. And for me. I did a lot of wrong things when you were a child. And I really want to make it up. I'm going to be the best damn grandmother any baby has ever had. You know, this whole thing with Eli is just stupid. It's just a self-indulgence.
Robin: No, it's not stupid. It's not. You're happy. And I want for you to be happy. And I don't want you to think that when this baby is born that you have to change. You don't have to fit into some stereotypical mold of a grandmother.
Anna: I can’t.
Robin: Right. So just be yourself. I mean, come on. Any kid would be lucky to have you in their life. I know I was.
Maxie: It's a little late for second thoughts. If you confess, it's going to look like you're covering for Johnny. Or the police are going to think that he has something to hide and then his chances of being acquitted will be shot to hell. So unless you want your boyfriend shipped off to Pentonville for the rest of his life, I suggest you suck it up and just see this through.
Lulu: Well, I'm not like you, Maxie. I can't sit here and act like nothing happened while Johnny takes the blame for killing Logan. I'm the one who ended his life. I should be the one who has to pay.
Maxie: I'm not acting like nothing happened. Logan was a pig, and I believe that you killed him in self-defense. So that is why Johnny and I are doing back-flips to try and cover for you.
Alonzo: Is she in?
Maxie: Alonzo, wait. Oh, Kate wasn't expecting you till three.
Alonzo: I'm having dinner in Milan tonight. I have exactly -- oh -- one hour before my flight leaves. If she can't fit me in now, we'll have to reschedule next month.
Maxie: Okay, why don't you take a seat? I'll let her know you're here early.
Alonzo: All right, thank you.
Kate: Well, it's too bad Giselle couldn't handle it. Could you hold a minute, please? Maxie, whatever it is, you need to take care of it.
Maxie: Alonzo needs to get on a plane to Milan in an hour and he wants to choose the models with you now.
Kate: Okay, you need to stay here.
Sonny: Lulu? I'm here to see Kate. Can I just go in there?
Alonzo: Absolutely not.
Sonny: You say something?
Alonzo: You're not right for Kate.
Lulu: Oh, um, Alonzo it's --
Sonny: No, no, no, let him talk. What are you -- what are you saying?
Alonzo: Well, granted, you're, uh, handsome enough. But you're far too brooding and dark for her tastes.
Sonny: You think so?
Alonzo: Kate needs someone blonde, who has that sun kissed look about him.
Sonny: Sun kissed, ah. Why don't we let her decide that?
Alonzo: We're on a very tight schedule.
Sonny: Don't do that, don't touch me.
Alonzo: Sorry, thanks for, um, coming by.
Sonny: I'm not leaving until I see Kate.
Kate: So, cancel my 10:30 and have the agency send over all their models immediately.
Alonzo: Kate, hello.
Kate: Hi, Alonzo.
Alonzo: Uh, there's one out here who is all wrong for the concept. Do you need to see him or do you trust my judgment?
Kate: Go ahead send him away. Yeah, yeah, I trust you.
Alonzo: Okay. [Clears throat] Satisfied?
Kate: I'm busy, Lulu.
Lulu: No, you don't understand.
Kate: No, I have a designer waiting to approve models that aren't scheduled to be here until this afternoon. So either get on the phone and help or get out.
Lulu: Well, the man that Alonzo just sent away was Sonny, and he didn't seem too happy about it.
Alonzo: Uh, I have a plane to catch. How long do you plan to keep me waiting?
Kate: Uh, not a second, Alonzo, why don't you come on in.
Alonzo: Thank you.
Kate: We'll get right to work.
Alonzo: Lovely, thank you so much -- excuse me.
Eli: This place reminds me of the bar I got my start in.
Coleman: Yeah, but come on, you've come a long way from cold beer on tap and a pool table in the corner.
Eli: Yeah, these days I spend more time drinking in V.I.P. lounges. Cheers, mate. Every now and then, it's nice to get down and dirty.
Coleman: Hey, Eli, if I comp this bottle of whiskey, do you think I can ask you a favor?
Eli: Dude, come on look -- I like the bar, but I couldn't play here. I mean, once they get people packed in here, it'll be a security nightmare, it will be a riot.
Coleman: All right, man, no danger of a riot, just a broken heart. Do you see the kid over here? He needs a few tips on how to impress the ladies. And since you've got them falling at your feet, I was thinking maybe you could, you know -- share a secret or two?
Eli: Say no more.
Coleman: I appreciate it, man.
Coleman: He does, too, cheers.
Eli: Hi, sport, how are you doing, you all right? I hear you, uh, are looking to score with the ladies. Is it anyone in particular or just fairer sex in general?
Spinelli: No, there's just one. One beautiful blonde that has captured the Jackal's very soul. However, he's most unclear as to how to turn her -- her friendly affections into those of a romantic nature.
Eli: [Laughs] Just learn to play the guitar, mate.
Spinelli: Well, unfortunately the Jackal is rhythmically challenged.
Eli: Well, you can wear one, can't you? You know how the girls always fall for the guy with the guitar.
Anna: Well, it depends on the guy and what kind of guitar he's holding.
Eli: Ahh, yes, this is the lady I've been talking about. Miss Anna Devane, you ready for an encore?
Lucky: I got your message, what's -- what's going on?
Sam: Okay, I am so glad that you're here, just listen to me for a second. You barely knew me when my daughter died, but losing her was sort of like having my heart ripped out. I learned to live with the pain, I mean, I learned to kind of bury it deep down inside. But seeing this little girl almost die today sort of brought everything back to the surface. And I know I'm probably overreacting, probably because this little girl was the same age that my daughter would have been if she had survived.
Lucky: Okay, okay, can you just slow down? What little girl?
Sam: Okay, I was taking a tour here today of the clinic when this woman came in with her daughter, and this little girl had been given defective antibiotics over at Mercy and nearly died from an infection that could have easily been treated otherwise.
Lucky: Okay, first the pain pills, then Nikolas’ seizure medication and now the antibiotics? How can this keep happening?
Sam: I don't know. But, Lucky, we have to find out who's putting these fake drugs into hospitals and clinics and stop them before somebody dies.
Lucky: I can't track down where the counterfeit drugs are coming from, much less prosecute the person responsible without a lead.
Nadine: It looks like Isabel is going to pull through.
Sam: So, like we're supposed to all breathe a sigh of relief and go back to business as usual? I mean think about it, what about the other patients who are seen at Mercy? What if somebody got bad meds and they're too sick to come to the clinic? Don't they deserve help, too?
Nikolas: I am going to call the health department and tell them to track down every patient that came through Mercy's E.R. in the last few days.
Nadine: There's got to be something else we can do, right?
Nikolas: Lucky, can you open up an investigation?
Lucky: It won't do us any good without any more information. Right now, we can't even be sure that the counterfeit drugs are coming from the same source.
Nadine: Well, why don't you start with the Zaccharas and then go from there? I mean, Claudia was hanging around the clinic, she had access and opportunity.
Nikolas: Hold on, we can't start making random accusations here.
Lucky: Nikolas is right, we need proof.
Lucky: Listen, I'll be happy to take down any information you had to offer and I'll just take it over to PCPD.
Sam: What if that doesn't work for me?
Max: They're from Miss Howard.
Diane: I should have known, the woman has impeccable taste. So why she's with Sonny is beyond me. Speaking of which, is he home?
Max: Uh, the boss stepped out. He should be back soon, though.
Diane: Which begs the question, why are you here? Not that I mind.
Max: Um, the thing is, uh, I have been meaning to talk to you about this. Nothing's been decided yet -- well, actually, it has been decided, but I just haven't --
Diane: You are returning to Sonny's employ.
Max: How did you know?
Diane: [Laughing] Oh -- you've been miserable ever since you stopped working for him. Which makes no sense to me, but I don't judge you, Max. I simply appreciate you for the loyal, upstanding, flexible man that you are.
Max: Well, thank you, that means a lot.
Diane: I assume that you stipulated that you and I will continue to see each other.
Max: That was the first thing I told the boss.
Diane: You forceful man, you.
Sonny: Hey, flirt on your own time. If you're going to do this, don't do it here, while you're working. I pay you by the hour.
Diane: Well, this won't take nearly that long; I just need your signature on a couple of contracts.
Max: Did you talk to Kate?
Sonny: Did you talk to Jason? Because you can't quit until you talk to him.
Diane: These contracts are for the Antiguan purchase. Now, they reflect the terms that you negotiated. However, they have asked --
Sonny: Yeah, just leave it on the -- there. I'm going to look at that later. Corinthos... this is just -- this is no.
Diane: I'm going to assume by your somber demeanor --
Diane: That Kate has somehow failed to meet an expectation in some way. Get used to it. Independent, free thinking women, like Kate and myself, are defined by our careers, not by whatever man we happen to be with at any given moment. And if you think that a ring, even five karats, is somehow going to turn Kate into a docile housewife whose only goal in life is to cater to your mood swings, I strongly advise you to reconsider this marriage. Or get used to the inevitable disappointment.
Maxie: I'm here to see John Zacchara.
Mac: What possible reason could you have for wanting to visit Johnny?
Maxie: Dad, I could explain it to you but it would probably be kind of awkward.
Mac: Try me.
Maxie: You said you didn't want to talk to me about my sex life.
Mac: You're sleeping with Johnny Zacchara?
Maxie: No, but I did sleep with Logan, mostly to hurt Lulu's feelings, and then when Lulu found out she kicked Logan to the curb, which of course he blamed all on me. You know, I don't know if you knew Logan when he was alive, but he wasn't the greatest guy. In fact he was downright insulting. Johnny, on the other hand, he's been really nice to me and I feel bad, I just want to help.
Mac: Ah, Maxie, you know, for all the trouble you've gotten yourself into, you sure have a generous heart.
Maxie: No, I don't, but I love you for thinking that.
Mac: He's in the interrogation room.
Maxie: Thank you.
Johnny: What do you want?
Maxie: A little help would be nice. Lulu is dangerously close to cracking, and if you don't do something, I think she's going to confess to killing Logan.
Sam: Okay, I have a question; just hear me out for a second. How long would it take for an investigation to get up and running, to set up some sort of a task force and go undercover at the hospital?
Lucky: The PCPD's resources is limited. We don't have enough manpower to pull officers off the street and assign them to a task force. Even if we did, I don't know if Mac would approve it.
Sam: Oh, I'm not sure I'm quite understanding this. So you're telling that you're planning on doing this all on your own? Come on, Lucky, there's got to be hundreds of people on staff between GH and Mercy. It could take him months to interview them all. And then what -- do you honestly believe that somebody is going to confess to buying counterfeit drugs and supplying them to patients?
Nadine: Lucky's not the enemy here.
Sam: I know he's not the enemy; it's just a little frustrating when you know that somebody's deliberately hurting people and the police department doesn't have enough funding to do anything about it.
Nikolas: Look, if you can't put together an official task force, okay, I'll fund a private one myself, in conjunction with the PCPD, okay?
Lucky: Well, the more people we have working on this the better chances of finding who's moving these drugs.
Sam: And then we can shut them down.
Matt: Hello, I am Dr. Hunter.
Jerry: You're a doctor.
Matt: Yes, that's me -- you can see my bedside manner. And you are -- Jerry, yes. I understand you're having some lower back pain.
Jerry: Yes, by a fairly nasty bruise.
Matt: Okay, well, let's have a look, shall we? Can you take that shirt off for me?
Matt: Ah, yes, here we are.
Matt: Yeah, how did you do this?
Jerry: I fell into someone's fist actually.
Matt: And someone's knife and, apparently, someone's gun as well.
Jerry: Yes, what can I say, I'm extremely clumsy.
Matt: And extremely lucky. I can see these all missed vital organs, however this one here --
Matt: Is dangerously close to your kidney, so I am going to have to order some tests to ensure that there is no internal bleeding.
Jerry: You wouldn't be putting me through a batch of unnecessary tests just to pad up your bill, would you?
Matt: Well, if you can't pay, I can refer you to a free clinic down the street.
Jerry: Uh, fortunately, money is not a problem in my line of work. Unlike you, who I'm guessing is drowning under a mountain of debt. How far is medical school setting you back exactly?
Matt: Why the hell are you so interested in my finances?
Johnny: Stay close to Lulu. Do whatever you can to make sure she doesn't confess.
Maxie: She doesn't exactly listen to me.
Johnny: Please be patient.
Maxie: Not one of my strong points.
Johnny: Please, Maxie, I need your help.
Maxie: I've done nothing but help since the minute you decided to tell Claudia that you killed Logan. I didn't think twice about jumping in to save Lulu, not that she appreciates it.
Johnny: Well, I do. All I ask is that you continue.
Maxie: I seriously don't know how much longer Lulu's going to be able to do this, okay? The guilt of what happened to Logan is really getting to her. And now everything that's going on with you. I mean, the stress, it might be too much for her to handle. And if she's anything like her mother, she could completely crash.
Johnny: She won’t.
Maxie: Mental illness runs in her family. And if you don't do something soon, and I mean fast, you could end up losing Lulu forever.
Johnny: That can't happen. Please, Maxie, I need your help.
Lulu: Oh, wow, don't you two look cozy.
Kate: Well, I would ask you how you like the flowers, but sending them was clearly a mistake.
Sonny: Flowers can't fix the problem, Kate.
Kate: They weren't meant to be a solution, Sonny. They were meant to tell you that I was thinking about you, and I didn't like the way we left things last night.
Sonny: I -- I didn't like it either.
Kate: Okay, so, look, I'm here. I'm here to apologize, and not just for the argument but for what happened earlier. Had I any idea that Alonzo was referring to you, I would have never let him send you away.
Sonny: I know, I know, I know.
Kate: I was dealing with three fires at the time, I was only thinking about the mock-ups.
Sonny: You're always -- that's the -- you don't have to explain, I mean, you know, you've got so much going on, you know.
Kate: No, but it doesn't excuse my behavior. Look, Sonny, you know I love you, right?
Sonny: Yeah, and you know that I love you. That's why I have to be honest. I'm not the type of guy who's cut out to be a stay-at-home husband. I can't just cheer from the sidelines while you're out conquering the world.
Kate: I'm not asking you to do that.
Sonny: No, just let me -- can I finish?
Sonny: I won't -- I can't -- be second -- in my wife's life.
