Johnny: I had a feeling you would be here. I was getting concerned last night. I tried you, and you never returned any of my messages. Now I know why. Lulu, I'm sorry.

Lulu: Did your family do this to mine?

Maxie: I was heading to Kelly’s to get a coffee, like I do a thousand times a day. And thank God I saw them before I went in.

Jason: What did you see exactly?

Maxie: Three guys with baseball bats, smashing up Kelly’s, beating poor Mike to the ground. You know how sometimes your brain can't process what your eyes are seeing because it's so surreal? That's exactly what happened to me. And when it looked like one of them was turning my direction, I called 911 and ran.

Jason: Okay, could you I.D. any of these guys if you saw them again?

Maxie: Sorry, I didn't see any of their faces. But I did see that one of them had a tattoo on his right wrist.

Sasha: Well, the strike against Morgan's truck yard went off without a hitch. He never saw us coming. Sonny's father is taken care of as well, so we're on track and on time.

Man's voice: Two simultaneous missions involving two separate teams plus explosives, and you're telling me you encountered no problems at all?

Second Man: There is one item of small concern.

Man: Hmm, as I thought.

Sasha: Well, the team handling Corinthos' father was spotted by a young woman passing through, but I'm sure that we can find her. Would you like her to be taken care of the same as the old man?

[Mike groans]

Sonny: Easy, Mike.

Mike: Huh?

Sonny: You're in the hospital.

Mike: Why?

Sonny: You don't remember?

Mike: I closed the diner. Some guys came in. I'm not sure.

Sonny: They said they'd retaliate because of me.

Johnny: Do you know something that connects my father to this?

Lulu: No, no. I'm sorry, but my head has been in a million different places from this time yesterday.

Johnny: Your mother left for France?

Lulu: Everything just happened so fast. She wakes up. She runs off with Scott, comes back with my dad. And now she's gone again. This time to another country. I'm still trying to process the fact that she was really awake. I don't know, I just -- I miss her, you know?

Johnny: I understand.

Lulu: I don't know. She was just so -- I don't know. She was sure.

Johnny: What do you mean?

Lulu: Well, she decided she was going to go to France in about an hour. I mean, one minute she's catatonic and the next minute she is fully in charge. I've just never known her to be so matter-of-fact.

Johnny: Did you not like her that way?

Lulu: No, it just threw me. I'm used to walking on eggshells around her. And the woman that we said good-bye to yesterday did not need protection from anybody. I mean, you know, good for her. She's putting her needs first. And when you think about it, it's about time. So, I am back at the Quartermaines', and I'm living in my civilized room with Alice waiting on me hand and foot, just like the past few months didn't even happen.

Johnny: It must be weird for you.

Lulu: Yeah, while I was thinking about a talk that I had with my mom before she left, about you and I and how I should trust my heart and trust us, and I was about to call you, and the phone rang first. It was Bobbie telling me about this.

Johnny: What exactly happened here?

Lulu: I don't know. They found Mike unconscious in the alley, beaten up. He's in the hospital.

Johnny: Is he going to be okay?

Lulu: I -- I think so. So they came back, and they torched the place. And the first person I thought of was your dad because he hates us. And he knows that this place is affiliated with my family. I mean, am I being paranoid?

Johnny: This is exactly the kind of thing that my father's capable of.

Epiphany: Mike Corbin’s blood work results are back from the lab. You need to make sure that his attending sees it before rounds.

Elizabeth: That would be Dr. Simmons. He wants to see them ASAP. I'll put in a page. Uhh! Damn it.

Epiphany: Are you okay, Nurse Webber?

Elizabeth: I'm fine. I just dropped some folders.

Epiphany: You know, you've been sitting on a hornet's nest since you got here. And it occurs to me that you might want to go somewhere and work that out.

Elizabeth: I'm fine, thank you. Dr. Simmons, can you come to the nurses' station, 10th floor? Dr. Simmons.

Sam: Hi. Got a minute?

Elizabeth: Actually, this is a really bad time.

Sam: Look, I know you're upset. I'm just here to ease your mind.

Elizabeth: Sam, I'm really busy.

Sam: Okay, I'm not leaving until I say my peace, so you might as well listen. Listen, I know things got pretty tense at Jason's last night, and I'm not sure if I really made myself clear. Him rescuing me -- it was totally random. It wasn't planned. We weren't working together behind anyone's back. That's it. That's all. And you need to believe that rekindling some old, bad relationship is the farthest thing from my mind.

Jason: Are you sure you weren't seen?

Maxie: Well, kind of.

Jason: Yes or no, Maxie.

Maxie: Well, I'm sorry. As soon as it looked like he might be able to see me, I just ran. I didn't see his face. I don't know if he saw mine.

Spinelli: If I may interject, Maximista's only relayed what she has seen through her eyes. Her beautiful -- but what I mean to say is that we have other senses --

Jason: He's asking you if you -- did you hear anything?

Maxie: Oh, now that you mention it, they were arguing in some other language, and it could have been Russian because he sounded like the guys who broke into the "Crimson" office.

Jason: Okay, did you tell Mac any part of this?

Maxie: No, and I didn't give the 911 operator my name either.

Jason: Good, good. You did good. Now you can go.

Maxie: No, I can't leave. I have to know what you're going to do.

Jason: Why would I tell you anything? You don't know how to be quiet. You proved that last night.

Mike: I crawled in the alley, right? And there were flames somewhere?

Sonny: The diner was torched.

Mike: Terrific. I finally find gainful employment and look what happens.

Sonny: Don't worry about it. Kelly's can be rebuilt. I'm going to rebuild it. Make it better than before. I'll get you a -- I'll get you a kitchen, make you shine. And the Spencers aren't going to have to spend a dime because I'm going to take care of them, but your life cannot be replaced, and I'm grateful that you were able to save it, but on the other hand, it -- it hurts me --

Mike: Sonny.

Sonny: That I put you there. You know what I mean?

Mike: Yes.

Sonny: Because if I hadn't then, you know, I mean --

Mike: Sonny, Sonny, Sonny. I don't blame you. Come on.

Sonny: Well, it's still -- it's fault.

Mike: Please, don't pick up the slack by blaming yourself. You did what you had to do. Hell, come on. Listen, I'm almost relieved. I thought this about some gambling debt that had fell through the cracks or something. So what's next?

Sonny: Well, what's next, I mean, somebody goes after your dad, I mean, you know, what are you going to do? You can't let that go.

Kate: Mike?

Mike: But --

Kate: Mike, I just heard --

Mike: Hey.

Kate: Oh.

Mike: Hey, Kate, come on in. Come on.

Kate: Um, okay, just for a minute. I'm here for a check-up, and Elizabeth said you had been injured.

Mike: Yeah, well, it looks worse than it is.

Kate: Well, I hope so.

Mike: Hey, come on. I'm a fast healer. I'll be as good as new in no time. For sure, I'll be good in time for the new wedding date.

Kate: I guess Sonny didn't tell you.

Sonny: No, I didn't get that far.

Mike: What's going on?

Kate: There isn't going to be a new wedding. Sonny and I are through.

Patrick: Are your arms getting tired?

Robin: You asked me that five minutes ago.

Patrick: I know. I just -- you know, fatigue can come sudden. Maybe I should take over.

Robin: I'm fine. I'm better than fine.

Patrick: Robin, D.I.C. is a serious condition, and in your case, it was pretty close to being fatal. So I just don't want you to push it.

Robin: Yes, but here I am, alive and healthy, feeding our little girl. You know, sometimes your daddy's control issues get a little out of control, if you know what I mean. It allows him to order us around in a much softer tone of voice, but we will not let him get away with that, will we?

Patrick: Okay, fine. Make fun of me. But you were unconscious. You don't know what it was like around here. People were very worried about you, especially me. It was scary to think of what it would be like without you, which would be tragic in and of itself, but for Emma -- well, she would be raised by me, a single father who is not even close to being capable.

Robin: Oh, come on. You're being too hard on yourself. You would have figured it out. Remember the tricky cabinet in my kitchen that you fixed?

Patrick: Oh, yes, I remember it. It took me a year and a half to fix.

Robin: Yes, yes, yes, it did, but the point is that you figured it out. And it's going to be the same with being a dad.

Patrick: Okay. When did you become little miss optimistic?

Robin: When I opened my eyes, and I saw my family here waiting for me. And I saw our little girl and saw what we made. It restored my faith in miracles.

Patrick: That's good, because we're going to need a few more of those. Now let me take her.

Robin: Okay. She's sleeping now so don't wake her up.

Patrick: Okay.

Robin: Oh, hello.

[Emma coos]

Robin: Daddy's going to hold you.

Patrick: Hey, sweetheart. Okay.

Lulu: So you think that my first instinct was right, and your dad did this to send some sort of message to you about me?

Johnny: I don't know. This is exactly the kind of thing my father would do, but he's recovering from a brain aneurysm. This is out of context.

Lulu: The sentence doesn't fit the crime?

Johnny: Something like that. Then again, my father wants to control me, and he's not exactly a linear thinker.

Lulu: Well, I'm sorry that I was snapping at you and that I even brought this up. I don't want you to take responsibility for your dad when we don't even know that he did this.

Johnny: You can be damn sure I'm going to find out who did.

Lulu: You know, this place has always reminded me of home and family and -- my Aunt Ruby ran it for years, and then when she died, she gave it to my dad and my Aunt Bobbie. Why would somebody do this? Why would someone deliberately destroy Kelly’s?

Sam: Well, aren't you going to say something? Come on, do something. Yell at me. Call me a liar. Throw accusations at me. Do something. I just want to get this over with so we can move on.

Elizabeth: I'm still thinking.

Sam: Please. Elizabeth, you and I have miraculously gotten to a really good place, and I just -- I don't want to start moving backwards and then have you hating me and not allowing me to be around the boys.

Elizabeth: Oh, so you and Lucky are still together.

Sam: Yes, I mean, as long as I have anything to do with it.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Sam: Yes, I mean, he's got his own suspicions concerning Jerry, but I think I'm going to be able to talk him down. And hopefully, we can pick up wherever we left off.

Elizabeth: All right, I'm -- God, I'm sorry for overreacting. It's just that Jason and I are having a really tough time right now, and I just -- we can't figure out where we stand. One minute we're taking off to Italy. And the next --

Sam: No, yes, I know. Cancels. Business.

Elizabeth: Yeah, exactly.

Sam: He does love you. You know that.

Elizabeth: I know, but is love enough? Apparently, Jason doesn't think so. And I'm starting to think maybe he's right. Not to dump my problems on you or anything.

Sam: No, I don't mind, actually.

Elizabeth: No, it's okay. I've said enough.

Sam: Okay, wait a minute. Since we're being honest and open and stuff, I'm going to keep things straight with you. I am not trying to move in on your territory. Jason's been a non-issue for me for a really long time. And nothing has happened to change that, okay?

Elizabeth: Okay, thanks.

Sam: Okay.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Sam: Bye.

Jason: How many times have I asked you to keep your mouth shut?

Maxie: You just said that I did good.

Jason: Right. I'm not talking about Kelly’s.

Maxie: I assume we're talking about Elizabeth. It's not like I went and told the police or anything.

Jason: Well, you shouldn't have said anything at all, Maxie.

Maxie: Okay, I'm sorry. I was wrong. I shouldn't have rubbed you and Sam in Elizabeth's face, but she was being really bitchy to me, and I couldn't help it.

Jason: It doesn't even matter because this is part of a bigger problem. Because of Spinelli, I've allowed you access to my home and my office. And you hear things you shouldn't hear. And he tells you things you shouldn't know.

Maxie: That's not very fair. I mean, I've proven to you over and over again that I know how to keep a secret.

Jason: I need to speak to Spinelli alone.

Maxie: Fine.

Spinelli: Look, I apologize for Maximista's lapse in judgment. You know, she's a very -- she's a very passionate creature. And sometimes her emotions override her common sense. But I promise to avoid exposing her to any further inner workings of the business. If you could just find it in your heart to allow me to retain her as a friend --

Jason: Okay, I'm not here to dictate your friends, okay? I'm just telling you -- be careful because Maxie has a little bit of Carly in her. They don't think any further ahead than the last person who upset them and how to get even. And innocent people get caught in their fallout. I am not going to let Elizabeth be one of them.

Mike: Kate, Kate, I would hate to see you give up on Sonny now after all you've been through.

Kate: Mike, it's because of -- it's because of what I've been through is why I have to. I mean, look, even the most stubborn person has to admit the truth, right? Carly will always be the third person in the room.

Sonny: That's not true.

Kate: Right.

Sonny: Carly told a lie, Mike, to keep me out of prison. It was a stupid lie, but I'm happy she did it. It doesn't mean I want her back, or that she wants me back.

Kate: It doesn't matter.

Sonny: It doesn't matter? Why would you even say something like that?

Kate: Because you've tried, right?

Sonny: I tried what?

Kate: You've tried to stay apart. You and Carly have tried to commit yourself to other people, but it just doesn't stick, right. Right?

Sonny: That's not true. Again.

Kate: Your actions speak louder, Sonny. When your back is against the wall, you turn to Carly. I don't even enter the equation. Look, I'm not going to have this conversation, okay? I'm just -- I'm done, okay?

Sonny: Okay, well, you know what? It's not going to be so easy to just -- what happened to my dad is not just an isolated occurrence, okay? Everybody who is close to me is going to be a target

Robin: Hey, Matt. Wait.

Matt: I didn't mean to bother you. Just go back to sleep.

Robin: No, I was just resting my eyes. Come in. Come on. You're Emma’s uncle; you can stop by whenever you want to.

Matt: Okay.

[Robin chuckles]

Robin: The whole instant family is kind of strange, huh?

Matt: You could say that, yeah.

Robin: Well, I happen to have a lot of experience in that area, and I will tell you it gets easier.

Matt: Yeah? Well, if you say so. How's Emma?

Robin: She's the most brilliant, gorgeous baby ever born. Want to see?

Matt: Of course.

Robin: Have you seen her yet?

Matt: I see her about twice a day. I have since she got here.

Robin: Really?

Matt: Yeah.

Robin: Wow. That's so sweet. I'm starting to see you in a different light, Dr. Hunter. If you're not careful, I might actually think that you're nice.

Matt: Oh, yeah? Well, I'll deny it with my dying breath.

Robin: There are witnesses. Kelly and Patrick both told me that you took a special interest in my case. Even Maxie found some nice things to say about you.

Matt: Maxie? Well, then we really know, right? It's just the idea of Emma growing up with Patrick as her only parent? I mean --

[Matt laughs]

Matt: Oof.

Robin: Well, then in that case, Emma thanks you, too. So now that we're on a roll, do you think you could do me a favor?

Matt: Uh, okay. If this about babysitting, if that's where this is going, I definitely don’t.

Robin: Well, it is, but it would be Patrick. He's driving me nuts, okay? He's in complete hover mode. He's monitoring every breath that I take. The only time he's not glued to my side is when he's carting the baby back and forth.

Matt: Isn't this a little late in the game for you to decide that you don't really like the guy?

Robin: I like the guy, okay? I just need a break sometimes. So, can I count on you to help me?

Anthony: Have you seen the paper?

Johnny: No.

Anthony: All hell broke loose last night. First, Kelly’s gets torched, then one of Morgan's truck yards takes a hit. And, in-between, Sonny's father was beaten within an inch of his life. Who says Port Charles isn't a great place to raise your kids?

Johnny: I imagine you're feeling pretty smug about right now, huh?

Anthony: Oh, well, I'll admit in these trying times, it's nice to read some good news in the paper for a change.

Johnny: So what's next, Dad? You spread the word throughout the ranks, let everybody know that you're responsible for this mess so they're ready to bend at your will?

Anthony: You think I did this?

Johnny: You've made no secret about wanting Jason Morgan out of the way. And then there's Lulu.

Anthony: What does Lulu have to do with anything?

Johnny: You think she makes me weak. You've wanted her out of the picture since the moment I met her,

Anthony: You give Lulu way more importance than she actually merits in the real world, John.

Johnny: Burning down Lulu's family's diner might just be enough to send her back to Shadybrook and away from me.

Anthony: Get you head out of the clouds, John. You're way off base. I did not do this. Karpov's people did to retaliate against Sonny. And that diner went up in flames because Sonny's father works there. And anyone connected with Corinthos is now walking around with a big, fat target on their back. But this could work to our advantage.

Bernie: The transport yard is a total mess. They Molotoved everything. The trucks, the cargo waiting to go. It's completely unsalvageable.

Jason: What about the guards?

Bernie: Morgue. Yeah, it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better. The Karpov organization is determined to cut Mr. Corinthos off at the knees. They want to isolate him. They want to make sure he has nowhere to go. So, due to his recklessness, your war -- the war that you fought to prevent -- you're right in the middle of it now.

Jason: I got to say, if it were me, if I believed Karpov had shot and almost killed the woman I love, I don't know if I would have reacted any differently, Bernie.

Bernie: Well, I beg to differ with you. I have worked for you for a very long time, and I think I know how you operate. Before indulging a desire for revenge, you would consider the people who work with you, and you would see what they have to lose. Mr. Corinthos -- not so much. The men are very angry with him for bringing this down.

Jason: I'll talk with him. Just set up a meeting with all our lieutenants.

Bernie: It's already done. Warehouse 10, one hour.

Jason: No, push it to eight. There's something I need to take of first.

Bernie: This city is going to be reduced to rubble. What could be more important to you than that right now?

Sonny: Karpov's lawyer made it clear there would be retaliation. I have a plan. I'm going to do whatever it takes to make sure that neither of you is in the line of fire. And, you know, from here on in, you both are going to be safe.

Kate: Sonny.

Sonny: What?

Kate: Do you know what the definition of insanity is? It's doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result. And that is you. And with each step, you're pulling yourself deeper into the quagmire. And that is your choice. I'm done. So don't distract yourself from important business protecting me. I'm officially out of your world, and the truth is I probably never belonged there in the first place. Mike, Mike, if you need something, just call me, okay?

Sonny: How do Kate and I get back from this?

Mike: I don't know.

Robin: Isn't this nice? It's just us girls. Not that we don't love Daddy, but he does worry a lot -- stirs up all the energy in the room. Your dad doesn't realize that he needs a breather just as much as I do. So your mommy had to resort to some trickery. Do you remember when I said that your daddy was a control freak? Well, it just so happens that your mommy is also a control freak, which will make things very interesting for you. But you just have to remember that your daddy and I love each other like crazy.

Patrick: Hey.

Robin: Hi.

Patrick: You are busted. Did you really think that I'd fall for something so transparent?

Robin: I have no idea what you're talking about.

Patrick: Oh, you don't?

Robin: No.

Patrick: Well, Matt, my brother, would never invite me to take over a case, and Epiphany would never let him tackle one that he wasn't qualified to take. This was a little setup to get rid of me wasn't it?

Robin: You know, it's not nice to badger new mothers.

Patrick: Oh, but plotting and scheming new fathers is totally acceptable?

Robin: Yes.

Patrick: Is it, really?

Robin: Yes.

Patrick: I don't think so. How is she?

Robin: She's perfect.

Epiphany: Good news from Dr. Lee. Mother and child are hereby released.

Robin: Did you hear that? That means that the Scorpio-Drakes are going home.

Johnny: Looks like your plan for Sonny was shot to hell.

Anthony: How do you figure that?

Johnny: Because you were planning on Sonny needing you to take out Karpov. Sonny finished the job himself.

Anthony: I need Sonny desperate for a power base. How that comes about doesn't matter. The fallout from Karpov's murder works just as well as Sonny coming to me directly.

Johnny: How?

Anthony: The Russians are going for a blanket retaliation. Last night, they just didn't strike Sonny, they waltzed right into the heart of Jason Morgan's operation. Now, if that bazooka has half a brain in his head --

Johnny: Jason will want to put his organization's well-being first and distance himself from Sonny. Sonny will be left all by himself. So next time he comes to you, he's not just going to protect Kate, but he's going to need protection himself.

Anthony: Ooh, you catch on fast, kid. Sonny will have no choice but to accept the deal I put on the table. Now, by going off the deep end and whacking that Russkie, he basically guaranteed his place in the Zacchara family. So I hope you're ready to welcome your new brother-in-law.

Johnny: Sonny treats Claudia like garbage. Why would you want her to marry him?

Anthony: Because sometimes you have to make sacrifices in the moment for the sake of the future, John. When Sonny and Claudia are joined in unholy matrimony, the Zacchara family will be more powerful than ever. And guess who wins bigger than anyone?

Johnny: You.

Anthony: No, John, you. You should know by now. Everything I do is ultimately for you.

Mike: Karpov knifed you and had you thrown in the -- in the harbor. I mean, you had to strike back.

Sonny: I don't want to lose her, Mike.

Mike: I know.

Sonny: But -- you know, the blowback is not just landing on me. It's landing on Jason.

Mike: On Jason? How?

Sonny: Yeah, you're not the only casualty. Karpov's people hit one of his truck yards -- just burned it to the ground with -- ready to go, you know?

Mike: What kind -- what kind of strategy is that? You and Jason aren't even partners anymore.

Sonny: Karpov's people are looking to get rid of any ally I might have. I think the best thing I should do is go talk to Jason. What do you think?

Mike: I think that's more than fair.

Sonny: You know what's ironic? Jason threw my friendship with him out the window for peace -- all for nothing.

Kate: Well, I'm pleased to report that the doctor gave my recovery a glowing review.

Olivia: Great. Let's get out of here. I've got stuff to take care of.

Kate: Okay, that's abrupt.

Olivia: What was the term? Uh, go to the mattresses? That's what we got to do right now.

Kate: What are you talking about?

Olivia: Uh, private security -- I hired it for your house and for your office 24/7. We got to go.

Kate: Okay, Olivia, just -- where is all of this over-the-top concern coming from?

Olivia: Over the top? Are you insane? Connie, there's no over-the-top here, okay? Unless you're completely in denial. Mob war broke out last night because of Sonny and his stupid macho code. Okay, the guy just runs in, and he doesn't look at the consequences of his actions on other people. He just scratches whatever itch he feels he needs to scratch at the time, and he leaves the consequences for other people to deal with. And luckily for you, I'm here, and I'm up to the task.

Kate: Okay, well, I'm grateful that I have you, but if there's one thing I've learned from being with Sonny is that protection from the mob is an illusion, Olivia.

Olivia: So you just want to sit around and wait for them to shoot you again, maybe kill you this --

Kate: No, no, but I've been with Sonny. It's a matter of public record, and if it makes me a target, there's nothing that can be done.

Olivia: Don't be so sure.

Sam: Maxie, what are you doing here?

Maxie: I, uh -- I owe you an apology.

Sam: Why?

Maxie: I kind of let anger override discretion.

Sam: Oh, no, this should be good. Go ahead.

Maxie: I went to the hospital yesterday to see Robin, and Elizabeth was there. She was behind the desk leaving some whiny voice mail for Jason about how she needed to see him or whatever. And I asked nicely if there was anything for Robin behind the desk. She had the nerve to go off on me. And then she said she was going to say bad stuff about me to Spinelli, and that really pissed me off. So when I saw you and Jason at the penthouse later, and you guys were all soaking wet -- I mean, it looked suspicious on the surface. And I was still really mad at Elizabeth, so --

Sam: I know, I know. I'm sure you made a beeline to the hospital to tell Elizabeth that what? He and I were hooking up or something?

Maxie: I'm so sorry, Sam. That was not fair to you or Jason.

Sam: No, it's okay, you know? It's probably actually a good thing that Elizabeth walked in when she did.

Jason: Hey, we really need to talk.

Elizabeth: I'm working. And like you, my work is important to me.

Jason: Okay, I deserve that. But a lot's happened, and I really want to tell you about it. Please? I'll wait. Okay, I'll wait on the roof. You just meet me during your break, okay?

Olivia: I'm here to see Jason Morgan.

Barista: He's not here.

Olivia: I'll wait. Is that his office?

Barista: Yes, but you can't go in there.

Olivia: Maybe I should introduce myself. Olivia Falconeri -- Kate Howard’s cousin, woman who almost married Sonny Corinthos. Yeah, I got reason to believe my cousin is in serious danger. I want assurances from Jason that he's going to protect her.

Barista: Look, they just pay me to pour lattes.

Olivia: Hey, hey, hey, hey. You work here, right? They give you a number to call in case of emergencies, right? I'm an emergency. You go make a call. I'll be waiting in Jason's office.

[Man speaking Russian]

Olivia: Yeah, I want the windows bullet-proofed. Yeah, I don't care how much it cost. She's got the money, believe me. Yeah. Hello? Oh, freaking battery.

[Glass shatters]

[Man speaking Russian]

Man: Aah!

Johnny: Hey, I got your message. You been here the whole time?

Lulu: Um, I came back. Spinelli was here. He told me a few things. I -- I owe you an apology. I was wrong. Your dad had nothing to do with this.

Johnny: I know. I actually just talked to him. Apparently, this is the work of some Russian mob syndicate to avenge Karpov's death. They did this to hurt Sonny's father. And, of course, I'm glad that the Zaccharas had nothing to do with it, but it doesn't make your family's diner any less torched.

Lulu: At least it has nothing to do with you.

Johnny: Yeah, it does. It's the world I'm from. This -- when I saw my father, he was -- he was loving this, not because he knew it was going to hurt you, but because he knew that the violence was going to get worse. He was practically giddy in anticipation of what the Russians are going to do to this town.

Lulu: I -- I don't get it because your dad lives here, too.

Johnny: I know, but my father -- you got to understand -- has no allegiance to wherever he lives. They're temporary power bases, okay? Territory to fight over and divvy up. This war is going to get worse. My father is going to manipulate it. And when it's over, he's going to be there shifting through the rubble , wanting to take what he thinks I should have.

Lulu: Don't, Johnny. You are not responsible for what your father does and why. You never chose this life. You're not choosing it now. Nothing can touch us unless we let it.

Johnny: How come you still want to be with me?

Lulu: That is the easiest question I have ever had to answer. I love you. It's as simple as that.

Sam: Okay, if I'm going to be honest, I guess I have to admit that as crazy as the whole situation with Jerry was, part of me really, really, really loved it.

Maxie: People think I'm weird.

Sam: No, no, no -- listen, not the part where I was -- where I was bound and threatened hourly by that sociopath. But I loved having to think on my feet. I loved the stakes. It reminded me of me -- the old uncensored me. I haven't felt that way in a really long time.

Maxie: You kind of sound like Luke Spencer. Maybe you should start hooking up with him.

Sam: No, please, I've already found my perfect partner in crime. Okay, it's just that it's been so long. I -- I kind of forgot how well-matched Jason and I are. We -- we make a really, really good team -- at least where lives are at stake. We don't even have to talk.

Maxie: That must work out really well for Jason.

Sam: Oh, come on. So anyway, who cares, right? Everything's over. Jerry's dead, and I'm not sorry for anything that happened. I was -- I was due for an adventure. And I really, really liked it.

Maxie: The adventure itself or going through it with Jason?

Elizabeth: I'm sorry about the way I acted downstairs --

Jason: No, no, you don't -- you don't have to apologize, okay? You don't have to explain. I'm the one who bailed on you. You're hurt, and you're mad. And you have every right to be.

Elizabeth: Jason, I don't want to be this angry, bitchy, disappointed person. I want to be open to what's good in my life -- even if it's imperfect. I know it's more than possible that things will never work out between the two of us, but I also don't want to look back at what we've shared and -- and wish that I'd tried harder.

Jason: You know I love you. Okay? But sometimes I feel you -- you refuse to look at the facts. I'm not just some guy your friend introduced you to. I mean, the reason I did not show up last night is because somebody is trying to kill me. I am being targeted as part of a retaliation against Sonny.

Elizabeth: What?

Jason: My truck yard was hit, and I lost everything. I lost a lot of men. You see what I'm trying to tell you? I'm not just a regular guy with a regular life. This life --

Elizabeth: What's wrong?

Jason: You see that glow a few blocks away? I think it's my office.

Olivia: Hey, anybody out there? I'm trapped in here!
