Tracy: Have you seen this man?

Bartender: Si, he's been here for a while.

Tracy: Husband?

Luke: Wife?

Spinelli: Might I offer a refreshing fruit smoothie to restore your over-burdened immune system since you did not come home last night, and I can only imagine you were working and therefore you are suffering from lack of sleep?

Jason: No.

Spinelli: Even you need a healthy blend of berries, protein, and calcium.

Jason: Okay, just not now, Spinelli. I'm working, all right?

Spinelli: You are less forthcoming than usual. Have there been more problems with Mr. Sir?

Nikolas: Hello.

Carly: Hi there. Thanks for meeting me. Sorry it was such short notice.

Nikolas: No problem. Should I assume this is about you selling me half your shares of the Metro Court?

Carly: Yes, it is.

Nikolas: So you're ready to finalize the deal?

Carly: I've given this deal some careful consideration. I have to tell you, Nikolas, this deal that you offered me, it -- it just doesn't add up.

Anthony: I understand you've been joyriding in the harbor again? This is the way you answer your father?

Johnny: I need a faster boat.

Anthony: You've got the fastest boat on the market for its size.

[Click of an empty chamber]

Maxie: Surprise!

Lulu: Um, hi.

Maxie: Hi, I'm probably not your first, second, or tenth choice for a visitor, but I should be, because I brought presents. Magazines, perfume, truffles. So that definitely makes me better than nothing, right?

Lulu: Have you seen Johnny?

Nikolas: It's not unusual for anyone to have second thoughts in any business arrangement, as you know, so I'll be happy to review anything you want. Just tell me where you'd like to begin.

Carly: Okay, first you wanted to buy out Jax for no good reason.

Nikolas: It was a whim. I told you I enjoy the view from my front terrace. I think it would be fun to own this place.

Carly: Okay, it also concerns me that you came straight to me after Jax turned you down.

Nikolas: Carly, I would have approached you no matter what Jax said. You're equal partners here. You're just as important to this hotel as he is.

Carly: How do I know you're not getting a foothold by purchasing my shares? Maybe you're trying to turn Jax and I against each other so you can knock us both out of the game and take over completely.

Nadine: Have you heard from Nikolas lately?

Elizabeth: No, not for a while. Why?

Nadine: Just wondering. Just because I haven't heard from him since he found me collapsed at the clinic.

Elizabeth: You collapsed?

Nadine: Oh, I'm fine. I just hadn't slept very well.

Elizabeth: Have you seen a doctor?

Nadine: No, it's no big deal, but totally embarrassing.

Elizabeth: Oh, so I take it you haven't told Nikolas how you really feel yet?

Nadine: It's hard to just blurt out your feelings to someone.

Elizabeth: Oh.

Nadine: Well, I guess it's not that hard. It's just, I keep blurting out the wrong thing, and then I wind up in some gigantic mess that Nikolas has to come rescue me from, and he's always so darn nice about it that I get really nervous.

Elizabeth: So now he's too nice?

Nadine: Look, things have just been really awkward since we -- you know -- and -- and I've been trying to take your advice and tell him how I really feel, but it just hasn't really worked.

Elizabeth: Why don't you just stop putting so much pressure on yourself and just let it happen?

Nadine: What do you mean?

Elizabeth: Keep it simple. I mean, why make some big declaration about it? Just find a reason to be together, and enjoy the time you have.

Nadine: Well, what kind of reason?

Elizabeth: Anything.

Jason: Sonny went after Karpov last night on his own, no guards, no backup, nothing. He'd be dead right now if Max didn't show up trying to impress his father.

Spinelli: That is most distressing.

Jason: Okay, all Sonny is thinking about right now is revenge.

Spinelli: And you disagree with his methodology?

Jason: Well, I think Sonny is either forcing Karpov or his people to retaliate, and we're not even sure Karpov is the one who shot Kate.

Spinelli: Have you tried to reason with Mr. Sir?

Jason: Yes, Spinelli, I have. The situation -- we see things differently. He wants to be aggressive. I want to hold off.

Spinelli: These troubled times call for Jackal, P.I.

Jason: No, not -- not this morning.

Spinelli: All I'm saying is that a fresh and clearly reasoned look at things may provide valuable insight.

Jason: All I'm saying is the last time Jackal, P.I. got involved, you lost your spleen.

Spinelli: I will stick to the handbook this time. I -- I will. Okay, the first step of every professional investigation is to review all the facts. Fact one, Karpov shot Kate.

Jason: No. Fact one, somebody shot Kate. We don't know who shot Kate.

Spinelli: I stand corrected. Assume nothing, section 4.5 -- never mind. Fact two, one shell was fired. Fact three, Cody found a bullet casing of Russian manufacture in the choir loft.

Jason: Yes, Kate was the target. Someone found a Russian shell case, and you think Karpov would just leave it there? If he was going to be that sloppy -- do you think he'd be that sloppy? Why wouldn't he admit it?

Spinelli: A note was left for the wounded fashionista in her office. Maybe comrade Karpov is establishing a new working style. The intruders were definitely Russian and terrifying.

Jason: Have you seen them before?

Spinelli: They were not the same ones that nearly ripped my arms from my sockets, but -- but who save from comrade Karpov and his minions would wish to threaten Mr. Sir's bride?

Johnny: What is it going to take for you to jump out of that chair and run away?

Anthony: Why don't you show your crippled old father some respect?

Johnny: I don't think you're crippled. I don't think you're paralyzed, and I don't think you were nuts all those years.

Anthony: Maybe I'm faking being sane.

Johnny: No, you're perfectly sane, which just means you're a hell of a lot more dangerous than when Trevor was keeping you locked up out here, and if going after Sonny's bride and shooting her on their wedding day was your first offensive, you must have something pretty big planned.

Anthony: Well, and you want to be part of it?

Johnny: What have I got to lose?

Anthony: You're still grieving for your nut-job girlfriend. Lulu is your blind spot, your vulnerable area. You don't think straight when you're with her. You get sloppy, and when you get sloppy, John, you get caught.

Johnny: I'm staying away from her now.

Anthony: Yeah, on doctor's orders, not because you want to. And not because you understand the kind of sacrifice running this business will require. You'll understand someday, but for now, go drive your boat around the harbor. You crash into another freighter if you want, but do not get yourself killed, because everything I'm doing now is for you.

Johnny: Maybe that's the truth, but you can't give me what I really need.

Maxie: So what kind of stuff do they have you doing? Do you walk the grounds, make potholders? They don't have you weaving baskets, do they?

Lulu: That class was full.

Maxie: Please tell me that was a joke.

Lulu: Tell me about Johnny. How is he doing?

Maxie: He misses you.

Lulu: I don't understand why he won't come to see me.

Maxie: Well, today's the first day you're allowed to have visitors.

Lulu: Oh, then he'll come by to see me today.

Maxie: I think maybe the doctors told him to leave you alone.

Lulu: Well, he doesn't have to listen to them.

Maxie: I probably shouldn't tell you this, but Johnny's not doing so well either. I was having dinner with Mac on Sunday because, of course, he still insists on doing that. You should see Robin. She's about to have the baby any day. Anyway, he told me that Johnny ran the speedboat into a freighter, but he's okay. He -- he wasn't hurt.

Lulu: Oh, that sounds like Johnny.

Maxie: Do you want me to take him a message for you?

Lulu: No, I'm not going to guilt him into coming here. If he wants to see me, he will.

[Mariachi music plays]

Luke: Hey.

Tracy: Rise and shine.

Luke: Por favor, more tequila.

Tracy: No tequila. Consider yourself back on the wagon.

Luke: Quiet -- quiet! Bum -- bum ticker, please.

Tracy: If you want to drink yourself from here to Mexico City, eating tortilla chips and pork rinds for all I care, it is no concern of mine.

Luke: Senor, mas tequila, por favor.

Tracy: No tequila. Sit down. My concern is for your daughter, Lesley Lu. Does that sound familiar?

Luke: Oh, how is my little gumdrop?

Tracy: She's not so good. Actually, she's getting more and more like her mother every day.

Luke: Oh, that's nice.

Tracy: No, Luke, it's not nice. Actually, she's in Shadybrook, across the hall from Laura.

Jason: What are you doing?

Spinelli: It's chapter 14, sections three through five. Visualize the facts. Okay, it's just like writing computer code. Every command has a name and a purpose, a cause and effect. Okay, just imagine this. Port Charles. Mr. Sir.

Jason: Sonny isn't king anymore. He took himself out of the game.

Spinelli: He still behaves like the king. He gives orders and expects you to obey them.

Jason: Okay, you know if I take action, things are going to escalate, right?

Spinelli: Okay, well, then, maybe the question is, who should Stone Cold be? Should he be the -- the brave knight, the -- the opposing black king or the white king himself?

Jason: These are chess pieces.

Spinelli: All right, fine. I'll do it. Stone Cold is the king. Yay, king. Okay, Mr. Sir is the opposing dark force, and comrade Karpov is the marauding black knight, and the fashionista is the white queen.

Jason: Okay, you know what? This is not helping at all.

Spinelli: Would you just please bear with me a little longer, please?

Jason: Fine, go.

Spinelli: Okay, so the Jackal has confirmed that comrade Karpov flew in from Moscow.

Jason: Correct, Karpov approached Sonny to act as go-between to get information.

Spinelli: All right. Oh -- okay.

Jason: What -- what is that for?

Spinelli: Well, Stone Cold was in the dark, so I --

Jason: Okay, Sonny and Karpov had a falling out. I find out about the deal, and I tell Karpov to stay away from me.

Spinelli: Back off.

Jason: And he does. And Karpov shoots Kate. Now you see, that -- this is ridiculous. Why would he shoot Kate? Sonny and Karpov had a deal that fell through months ago. Why would he take so long to retaliate? Why would he take the risk? It's to his advantage to lay low, Spinelli.

Spinelli: He's just changing strategies.

Jason: What? We have a truce.

Spinelli: Maybe he broke it.

Jason: Well, why come after me? He'd come after me, wouldn't he? Why Kate Howard?

Spinelli: I -- I cannot dispute your stone cold logic, but we cannot rule out a higher gun, a hapless pawn.

Jason: Working for who? And why leave the Russian shell casing? Why frame Karpov?

Spinelli: Sometimes error code is error code is error code.

Jason: And what the hell does that mean?

Spinelli: Well, it just means that in -- maybe in this rare occurrence, Stone Cold is overcomplicating things. Maybe -- maybe the motive is truly just revenge. Maybe Mr. Sir is right. Comrade Karpov is the one that fired the shot that felled the fashionista.

Nikolas: Would you be completely put off if I told you that this entire Metro Court idea was just to impress a woman?

Carly: I thought you said it was a whim.

Nikolas: It is. It absolutely is. But it hit me soon after Nadine mentioned that she'd never actually seen me work before.

Carly: You worked putting that clinic together. You worked very hard to make that happen.

Nikolas: I suppose I did, but so did everyone else, and she does kind of have a point. I mean, most of Cassadine holdings is -- it's old money, ancient money, actually. Most of my business is in Europe, Asia, Russia. I don't know, it's just the -- it's just the idea of waking up every morning in Port Charles and going to work that suddenly appeals to me very much.

Carly: You'll get over that quick.

Nikolas: Yeah, you may be right. But Jax -- Jax's refusal to even consider my offer makes me want it even more.

Carly: Well, I -- I guess we both have a lot to think about.

Nikolas: Yes, we do, but you can take all the time you need. But I want you to understand something. No matter what happens with this deal, I don't want you to lose your power. In fact, I'd like to help you get more. Have a good evening.

Spinelli: Fair Lulu.

Lulu: Spinelli, hi.

Spinelli: Hi. Oh, I see a visitor preceded me.

Lulu: What?

Spinelli: Someone arrived bearing gifts.

Lulu: Maxie. She brought truffles. Want some?

Spinelli: The Jackal also took the liberty of bringing a few things for fair Lulu's amusement, including volumes of poetry, Shakespeare and William Blake, a visionary and early romantic who was also an artist, a dreamer of dreams.

Lulu: I love the way you talk. I miss listening to you.

Spinelli: Yeah, I also brought some comic books, a few of my favorites with an emphasis on superheroes who are mythic and archetypal.

Lulu: Thank you.

Spinelli: Maybe I could -- I could read you a few poems, thereby providing solace and support?

Lulu: I'd like that.

Spinelli: "Tyger, tyger, burning bright, in the forests of the night what immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry? In what distant deeps or skies burst fire of thine eyes?"

Lulu: It's like he's describing Johnny.

Anthony: Oh, Miss Jones, what a pleasant surprise.

Maxie: I told that stupid guard at the front that I wanted to see Johnny, not you.

Anthony: Well, it's my house, so I decide who Johnny gets to see.

Maxie: Is he here?

Anthony: What do you think about my roses? You know, I built a greenhouse after the fire. I would love to give you a tour some time.

Maxie: I don't have time for any of your mind games right now, and that arrangement would look a lot better if you took a few of the flowers out.

Anthony: Well, come here and show me.

Maxie: I just want to see Johnny.

Anthony: But how can you have an opinion about the roses if you're standing so far away?

Maxie: Okay, here's the deal. If you don't have Johnny come down here immediately, I'm going to speed-dial Jason Morgan, and before you know it, you'll be up to your ears in a bunch of little mob guys.

[Anthony laughs]

Anthony: Why would Jason protect you?

Maxie: Because we happen to be extremely close, and I'll scream as soon as he answers the phone. You have until the count of three. One, two --

Johnny: Enough with the dramatics.

Anthony: Oh, we were having so much fun.

Maxie: Could you not return one of my phone calls or answer one of my text messages?

Johnny: What do you need to tell me?

Maxie: As if I'm going to say anything to you in front of your insane father.

Johnny: You can leave, or we can.

Anthony: You're right about the roses, Miss Jones. Excellent eye.

Johnny: What is wrong with you, antagonizing my father?

Maxie: Lulu needs to see you.

[Mariachi music plays]

Tracy: Keep drinking.

Luke: Innkeeper, por favor, un poquito brandy.

Tracy: Do not give this man alcohol, and if you do, they will be digging up your body years from now. Mas cafe, por favor.

Bartender: Si, senora.

Luke: Senora, you don't understand hair of the dog.

Tracy: What I understand is that your daughter needs you, and you have to come home.

Luke: I don't understand what you're talking about.

Tracy: Fine, then I'll tell you again. Get your arm in.

Luke: I don't want to hear it again.

Tracy: Well, you're going to hear it. Oh, you're such a loser.

Tracy: Logan Hayes became obsessed with Lulu.

Luke: After she clubbed him with a pipe wrench and put him in a coma? No, you're just trying to get me to come home to fulfill my conjugal duties, and I think that's cool, but I don't understand why I can't have a little drink.

Tracy: And when Lulu turned him down, he went nuts.

Luke: Well, he was always unstable, Baldwin’s spawn.

Tracy: Logan tried to rape and kill Claudia Zacchara. John Zacchara killed him. Are you keeping up with me?

Luke: But I thought --

Tracy: John Zacchara killed him. Claudia and John covered it up.

Luke: What does this have to do with Lulu?

Tracy: Lulu thinks she's responsible because Logan was obsessed with her.

Luke: Well, that makes no sense.

Tracy: Exactly, hence my concern for Lulu.

Nikolas: Nadine.

Nadine: Oh, hi.

Nikolas: Didn't expect to see you here.

Nadine: Well, you know how it is.

Nikolas: Yeah, so how are you feeling?

Nadine: Not dizzy, no headaches. Promise I won't pass out.

Nikolas: Did you see the doctor?

Nadine: No, I'm fine. I'm sure it's just one too many sleepless nights, you know.

Nikolas: What do you mean? You haven't been sleeping?

Nadine: Well, no. Yeah, I mean, have you? It's none of my business. I shouldn't have even come over here. This is not even on my way home. So I'll call you later. You can call me, or we'll just not call each other. We're really busy and everything.

Nikolas: Wait, wait, wait, before you go, look, that night we spent together -- it was wonderful. I mean, it really mattered to me. It was the first time in a long time that I've been truly happy.

Jason: No, Bernie, I want business as usual, okay? I want you to keep an eye on our people, see if Sonny makes any overtures, and then I --

Carly: Hey, do you have a second?

Jason: Bernie, call you back. Yeah, yeah, it's Carly. Again.

Carly: So, you're not impersonating a bodyguard anymore.

Jason: Max's father went back to Italy.

Carly: It's really sweet what you did. I know Max appreciates it.

Jason: I'm just glad things worked out the way they did. What do you need, Carly?

Carly: Do you trust Nikolas Cassadine?

Jason: Why?

Carly: Would you go in to business with him?

Jason: I don't know. What kind of business?

Carly: He wants to buy half my shares of the Metro Court, and I'm thinking about selling it to him. It's a long story, but I want to do this because I'm trying to spite Jax, and I know that's so me, so I need you to tell me if you think I should count to ten.

Jason: I thought you loved that hotel.

Carly: I do love that hotel.

Jason: Then why -- why would you want to sell it?

Carly: So I can prove to Jax that, you know, I can make my own decisions and I'm capable of running my own life.

Jason: But how does undercutting yourself at the hotel prove anything?

Carly: Well, it wouldn't be doing that, okay, because Nikolas, you know, he has tons of money. He has an international reputation. He's got lots of good ideas.

Jason: So what? You got good ideas, too.

Carly: So you think it's a bad idea?

Jason: Well, I think, you know, I might go into business with Nikolas, but I don't really see him working at the hotel. Carly, you don't -- you don't have to destroy something good in your life, something you love, that hotel, just to prove a point to Jax.

Carly: Everything makes such sense after I talk to you. Thank you.

[Phone rings]

Jason: Yeah, Bernie, where were we?

Elizabeth: Hey, I need to see you right away.

Maxie: Lulu is waiting for you. She knows she's allowed to have visitors. She's sure you're going to come see her.

Johnny: Lulu understands why I'm not going to see her.

Maxie: Hello? Are we talking about Lulu Spencer? Miss "I'll do whatever I want whenever I want to, no matter what?" She's not going to understand why you're not visiting her.

Johnny: If I go visit her, she could relapse.

Maxie: I put my life on the line coming here today, not that you would ever thank me, but if you love Lulu as much as you say you do, then you'll go visit her and do whatever you can to get her out of that place.

Johnny: I put her in that place. I'm the reason she's so sick.

Maxie: No. Lulu had a breakdown because she killed Logan. And maybe it was made worse because of her genes and her mother, I don't know. But what I do know is that she needs you now, more than ever.

Johnny: What I know is what happens with mental illness when it goes untreated. My father is living proof.

Maxie: After all the times you said you love Lulu or after everything that happened at your trial -- come on, Johnny. I really think you're the only one who could save her.

Johnny: Well, that's exactly what I'm trying to do by staying away.

Spinelli: "To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour."

Lulu: That's nice.

Spinelli: Thank you. Perhaps you've had your fill of Blake and would now enjoy an energizing snack of barbecue chips and orange soda.

Lulu: I'm not hungry, thank you.

Spinelli: Well -- well, then maybe an invigorating walk around the grounds to stimulate your appetite? It's a beautiful fall day.

Lulu: I have to get ready for my session with Lainey.

Spinelli: I'm -- I'm sure the dedicated doctor is used to tardiness on your part. I mean, fair Lulu time is at least 20 minutes behind any other zone.

Lulu: Do you ever see Johnny?

Spinelli: I would be happy to relay any and all messages.

Lulu: Never mind. Johnny knows where to find me. He will either come see me or he won’t.

Spinelli: The Jackal fears that fair Lulu --

Lulu: Everybody thinks that Johnny is making me sick. Including Johnny.

Tracy: Your daughter's in real trouble, Luke.

Luke: Tracy, so far, I've heard nothing to worry about. She rescued her man. Probably because Baldwin framed him.

Tracy: They carjacked the mayor to get out of town.

[Luke laughs]

Luke: Oh, that's my girl.

Tracy: Within days, she was hallucinating. She was delusional, and John took her to Shadybrook to get her some help.

Luke: Well, that was probably part of the scam.

Tracy: John ends up in jail. Lulu ends up in a straitjacket. And Baldwin rushes the trial through, claiming that Logan was a cop and he made it a death penalty case. So he puts Lulu on the stand, and by the time he's through with her, she is confessing to Logan’s murder.

Luke: Son of a bitch.

Tracy: Luckily, nobody believed her. But your daughter is very, very sick, and she's getting worse by the day.

Elizabeth: That was fast.

Jason: What's wrong?

Elizabeth: Come in. So the paint in this place is driving me crazy, and there's no way I'm going to spend all winter long looking at these walls. I thought maybe you could help me by starting with the top of the walls, maybe doing the ceilings?

Jason: Wait, wait, wait. You called me over here to paint?

Elizabeth: Well, what did you think I wanted?

Elizabeth: I don't know what happened. Something just clicked. I need to make the studio more comfortable if I'm serious about working here. I had the afternoon off, found some paint, and here I am.

Jason: Elizabeth, this is kind of a bad time for me.

Elizabeth: Okay. It's no problem. I know I kind of sprung it on you. But listen, if you have some time in the next couple of days, I'd really appreciate you coming over here and helping me.

Jason: Well, you just want me to stop by any time to help you paint your studio?

Elizabeth: There's never going to be a good time for us, Jason. There's never going to be a magic airplane where we can hop on and go to Italy, and there's never going to be a magic door we can walk through and leave the rest of our lives behind us. So why not focus on what we can do?

Jason: I can't just ignore what's going on here. I --

Elizabeth: I can't ignore the fact that I've got two kids and a full-time job and a car that keeps breaking down on me. But I'm not going to think about it every minute of every day.

Jason: No, but my situation is a little different.

Elizabeth: Well, maybe you shouldn't be living your life on red alert. I believe you're the one who taught me that.

Jason: I know, I know. But every choice I make or don't make affects the people I care about.

Elizabeth: So what's your down time?

Jason: That's why I ride my bike.

Elizabeth: At breakneck speeds in the middle of the night with no lights on?

Jason: I stay off the main roads.

Elizabeth: Painting's a lot safer -- if you leave the window open. You know, Jason, I'm responsible for a lot of people, too, at work and at home, but I still need to unwind. And that's all I'm offering you. An afternoon, maybe an evening if you get the chance. Just a place to hang out. I don't want to have any more agonizing conversations about what we can't have. I just want to hang out with you.

Jason: Where do you want me to start?

Luke: Baldwin put Lulu on the stand because of me.

Tracy: I would have to agree.

Luke: Was Zacchara acquitted?

Tracy: His sister Claudia saved him. He's free. Lulu's getting sicker.

Luke: Well, that doesn't make any sense. Why isn't she getting better?

Tracy: A few days after the trial, Lulu called Nikolas and Lucky and told them she had a surprise for them. She took them to see Laura. She was devastated when Laura didn't wake up. She's convinced that Laura talked to her all through the trial and that Laura is what got her through it.

Luke: Is there any chance that that really happened?

Tracy: Luke, I looked in on Laura. There's no change. She's exactly the same. I talked to the doctors. There's no record of any change. The conversations were in Lulu's head. She's a very sick girl, and she needs you.

Luke: Right. Let's go.

Maxie: Oh. Where have you been? I left messages.

Spinelli: I have tidings of the more dire and disturbing --

Maxie: Enough of the mob stuff, okay? This is really important.

Spinelli: No, this is about the state of fair Lulu.

Maxie: How did you know?

Spinelli: I saw the gifts that you brought. I visited, and I figured you'd share my concern. I was able to soothe her a bit by reading excerpts from William Blake, but then the most disturbing development --

Maxie: She said she had to be somewhere on time.

Spinelli: Yes. I was stunned and mightily distressed.

Maxie: I know. Lulu's never anywhere on time.

Spinelli: I fear she's being stifled by the well-meaning care workers at Shadybrook.

Maxie: Then this is it, Spinelli. We have to break her out of there.

Lainey: You had two visitors sign in today. Maxie and Spinelli. Were you glad to see them?

Lulu: Of course.

Lainey: Did seeing them make you want to go home?

Lulu: I thought I wasn't supposed to ask about going home.

Lainey: You can ask me anything, Lulu. We'll work through it. And it's good for you to think about going home. The goal has never been to keep you here indefinitely. We're trying to help you get better.

Lulu: That's what I want more than anything.

Lainey: Have you had any more nightmares?

Lulu: No.

Lainey: Any more hallucinations?

Lulu: I know what's real and what's not. Logan is dead. My mom never woke up. And I never received any threatening letters.

Nikolas: It was rude for me to not even consider how strange it must have seemed to you for Alfred to just walk in on us and serve us breakfast that first morning after --

Nadine: It was nice.

Nikolas: Yeah. But it made you believe that I entertain women like that all the time, which I don't, and that I didn't care about spending the night with you, which I did, very much.

Nadine: Then why were you acting so cavalier?

Nikolas: Because I wanted to make you feel comfortable, that's all. And it was certainly never my intention to give you the impression that you're -- that you're one of many, because you're not. Really, you're not.

Nadine: I don't -- I just didn't want you to think that I was this silly little farm girl who was going to glom on to you.

Nikolas: No. Really, I never felt that.

Nadine: Look, I've never met anyone like you either, and my life is better with you in it, too. I didn't want that night to be the end of things. I wanted it to be the beginning.

Nikolas: Yeah. Yeah, that's what I want, too.

Nikolas: Are you sure you're okay with this?

Nadine: Yeah.

Carly: Wow, am I interrupting?

Elizabeth: When you think about it, helping me paint this studio is a lot more practical gift than going to Italy.

Jason: Oh, Italy wasn't supposed to be practical.

Elizabeth: I know. I still imagine us wandering around the villages and walking along the beaches.

Jason: I'm sorry it didn't work out.

Elizabeth: A friend once told me that I shouldn't think about things that can't happen. So now when I picture us in Italy, it's just a dream. It helps me appreciate what I do have and enjoy what's right in front of me.

Jason: That's a good way to live.

Elizabeth: I appreciate you being here with me.

Jason: I'm glad you called.

Elizabeth: And there's something else I'd appreciate.

Jason: What's that?

Elizabeth: Can you start painting?

Elizabeth: Thank you. Right up there at the top would be great.

Jason: Okay.

Elizabeth: Just be careful, though, because that ladder's a little -- maybe we should --

Jason: No. No, no.

Elizabeth: Let's move that ladder. It's going to --

Jason: Oh.

Tracy: Okay, over here.

Luke: Okay, it's okay. I didn't have a heart attack. I just blacked out for a day or two. Okay. All right. I'm fine now, I'm fine. I think I lost my jeep in a card game. Where's your car?

Tracy: My rental's outside, but I've got to call Daddy first. I have to make sure the, uh -- you're a mess -- money laundering charges against you get dropped.

Luke: Oh, no, that'll all be taken care of by the time we get to the border. Wait a minute. Why would Edward bribe a judge on my behalf?

Tracy: Oh, well, he's doing it to help Lulu.

Luke: He thinks I'm a terrible influence on Lulu.

Tracy: Okay, so maybe I'm blackmailing him to help you -- her -- you and them?
