Nikolas: I think Carly just offered a reasonable solution. It's unfair to reject it out of hand, don't you think?

Carly: Yes, Jax, it works out for everyone. Nikolas can sell his shares of the Metro Court back to me. You can sell Nikolas Spoon Island. No harm, no foul. We all wind up back where we started.

Jax: Which is precisely where I don't want to be. In fact, riding over here on the launch, I realized how beautiful Spoon Island is at night. I mean, it has amazing potential for commercial development here. So, with that in mind, I've decided to buy Wyndemere as well.

Claudia: You think you can just throw an engagement ring in my face and a proposal and I -- I'll marry you anyway?

Sonny: Yeah, I just did it, didn't I?

Claudia: Look who's here.

Sonny: Olivia, is everything okay?

Claudia: I assume she was spying. She's just not any good at it.

Sonny: What are you doing here?

Olivia: I came here to try and talk some sense into you. It looks like I'm too late, if that's actually an engagement ring.

Claudia: It is. Why don't you hurry up and congratulate us and then you can run off and tell your cousin Connie Sonny and I are officially getting married.

Mac: We all agree it's a crisis, Mayor. No, sir. I'm aware of the bystanders. Yes, my daughter was one of them. My prime suspect just walked in. No, sir, no one wants business as usual. All right. I'll take it from here.

[Door closes]

Mac: Port Charles is under siege, Jason. A lot of innocent people are getting hurt, and it's all on you.

Elizabeth: This is going to be so much fun. When Sam gets back inside, we're going to light a fire and we're going to roast marshmallows.

Sam: The Russians are outside.

Elizabeth: What?

Sam: Yes, they're here.

Elizabeth: There's no dial tone.

Sam: They must have cut the lines.

Elizabeth: Are you sure there's no cell signal out here?

Sam: No, no, not for miles. We're definitely on our own.

Sam: I think you and the boys should probably just hang out in the bedroom for a while. It has the fewest windows.

Elizabeth: Okay, Cameron, get the toys and put them in the bag, please.

Sam: Come here, honey. Maybe you guys can go in the bedroom and play fort in the closet or -- or under the bed or -- or -- okay, you want to keep them where it's most protected.

Elizabeth: Okay, I got it. Okay, guys, come on. Let's go. Let's get the -- let's get our toys and we're going to be in the bedroom. We're going to see if we can build a fort, okay? Here, grab me that. Okay, come on. Come with me. Let's go.

Cameron: Go, go, go!

Sam: It's just me. It's just me. Oh, you guys are playing fort. What a great idea. Can I come in?

Elizabeth and Cameron: Sure.

Sam: Okay. I got an idea. Why don't you guys play hide out and your mom and I are going to fix the window?

[Jake cries]

Elizabeth: All right, yeah, that sounds like a good plan. Here, can you take care of your brother and play with the -- the motorcycles?

[Jake fusses]

Elizabeth: Here's a motorcycle.

Cameron: Here, here.

Elizabeth: Enjoy.

Mac: Sit down.

Mac: You think I don't know what's happening here, Jason? Sonny killed Andrei Karpov to avenge Kate Howard getting shot. Karpov is middle management in the Russian mob. And his people retaliated by blowing up one of your truck yards, killing two guards, burning down Kellyís, and leaving Mike Corbin beaten half to death. Then they hit your coffee house and sent two more innocent people to the hospital. Oh, and not that you care, my daughter was also attacked.

Jason: Mac, I hate all of this, especially what happened to Maxie.

Mac: Then you admit you're trying to shut down the Russians by hitting back harder. That's why you lured them to the warehouse, fired off a few rounds, then blew the place sky high. Three people were killed, and we're still digging through the rubble, Jason. Correct me if I'm wrong, but this wasn't the first strike. Yeah, I think you're not going to stop until they're either all dead or out of your territory, right? I mean, it's an interesting strategy that probably works for the mob, but in the real world where the rest of us live, Jason, it's called murder. You're going to pay for it this time. The Russians -- no, the Russians, you see, they're just a symptom. You -- you and your organization are the disease. And I'm going to shut you down.

Nikolas: I won't be selling Wyndemere under any circumstance.

Jax: Well, I'm sure you'll reconsider once the golf balls come crashing through your stained glass windows.

[Nikolas chuckles]

Nikolas: That's funny. Well, that's not going to happen because this resort of yours that you've dreamed up is never going to be built. In fact, my attorneys are probably getting my lease renewed as we speak. I'm certainly not going to live surrounded by tourists.

Jax: You're right. You're probably going to have to move out. I mean, why live with the inconvenience if you don't have your horses or your grounds. Those beautiful open pastures, they're going to be golf courses and parking garages. I'm going to build condos along most of the cliffs. Well, I'll be happy to leave you a view of the Metro Court since you're so fond of it.

Nikolas: That's all right. I'll keep my view. Don't you worry about that. You know what? Should I just go ahead with my original plan and force you out of the Metro Court completely just because I can?

Jax: You know, Nikolas, you'll have a hell of a lot more to worry about here at home, at least while you can still call it home. I'm just wondering what I should do with this place, if I should tear it down or renovate it.

Carly: You have never cared about Spoon Island, much less been interested in Wyndemere. This whole place is creepy and a lot of bad things have happened here. It would be a very hard sell as a resort and spa.

Jax: That's a good point. She has a good point. You know, I'll have to tear it down.

Nikolas: You don't own Wyndemere, Jax, only the land around it, arguably at that.

Jax: I will own everything soon.

Carly: Okay, stop. I don't want some minor deal to turn into a huge fight over nothing, especially when I have the most to lose here.

Jax: You couldn't sell your shares to the Metro Court to Nikolas fast enough.

Carly: He just agreed to sell them back.

Jax: You know, I could probably put together some kind of package deal. I'm sure that the hotel will only help the resort and vice versa.

Nikolas: I don't think you -- you're really getting this, Jax. There will be nothing built. Either I win back the lease or I keep you tied up in court for years, your choice.

Jax: Don't worry, Nikolas. It'll be very high end, no peasants allowed.

Carly: Stop. You're being completely unreasonable and you know it.

Jax: At one point, I would've listened to you, but that time has come and gone.

[Nikolas chuckles]

Nikolas: Are you building this resort because you want to punish wife -- what, five, six, seven?

Jax: No, Nikolas, this is -- this is simply business, okay? This has nothing to do with my personal life.

Carly: Really? Then think, Jax. It's winter. No one starts building a resort in upstate New York in the winter. No, this isn't a good investment. You're doing this to get back at me because of what happened with Sonny and you know it.

Jax: This is a perfectly legal development of an unutilized property. That's it. That's all there -- there's only one question, really -- what do we call the place? The Resort and Spa at Spoon Island -- that's a little long, right? Spoon Island spa, Spoon Island spa -- what do you think, guys?

Nikolas: You keep pushing and I'll take everything you have.

Lulu: I will love you, no matter what you do, but I think you should think about what it costs to be in your family versus what it would cost to leave.

Johnny: I've left before and I told you what happened. My father killed the family who tried to help me.

Lulu: That was a long time ago. Your father is not as crazy as he used to be.

Johnny: Okay, but don't bet on that, okay? Even if I did leave, what then? I have a high school diploma and no job experience. College was never an option, so really, the only thing in life that I know how to do is drive fast and shoot guns.

Lulu: You could always give piano lessons.

Coleman: I could set you up with a keyboard and a tip jar over there in the corner. Every joint needs a piano player now and then.

Lulu: See? Look at that. You make a choice and then all of a sudden, things happen. Well, I got to head to work soon. You should think about leaving, too.

Johnny: Let's get out of here.

Lulu: What, us? Where?

Johnny: I don't know, wherever.

Lulu: Whoa --

Johnny: Thanks.

Lulu: Okay. [Chuckling] I am so driving.

Olivia: So what do you want me to tell Connie?

Sonny: Let me --

Olivia: Exactly.

Sonny: I'll take care of it.

Olivia: No.

Sonny: Yeah, I will.

Olivia: Family -- I don't want her to hear this from anyone else but me.

Claudia: It's amazing what we'll do in the name of family, isn't it?

Olivia: Don't get me wrong, Sonny. I'm not surprised, just disappointed.

Claudia: You were hoping for one of these for yourself?

Olivia: I just wish you could've been honest with Connie. And I wish she could understand what power really means to you.

Sonny: Olivia, you got to understand something, okay? Kate and I, we're not together right now. And she -- she -- you know, she'll understand what I'm trying to do here, okay? But you were right from the start. You were right from the start. Somebody in the business shouldn't be with somebody out of the business.

Olivia: Right. Well, you're lying down with dogs here. And you don't need me to tell you this is not going to end well.

[Door closes]

Claudia: So, which cousin are you really in love with, Kate or Olivia?

Jax: You want to come after me, Nikolas, by all means, have at it.

Nikolas: You'll regret that attitude.

Jax: Why, am I being too cavalier, not respectful enough to the prince? Weren't you the one that started all this when you decided to buy my hotel on a whim?

Nikolas: Oh, I see, no one can challenge the mighty Jasper Jacks, right?

Jax: No, no, no, by all means, go ahead. I mean, this is what I do, Nikolas. This is my business. It's what I do all day long. The higher you raise the stakes, the more fun it becomes for me.

Nikolas: I'm giving you the opportunity to back down. If you have any respect at all for Carly, accept her offer and we can all move on.

Carly: You know, I think we need to stop here because you guys are both crossing lines and it's getting a little ridiculous. We need to take a deep breath and back off before this gets out of control. I don't want us to look back six months from now and regret the choices we're making here.

Jax: I'm done looking back. I'm dealing with reality. And the reality is I own Spoon Island and I'm going to develop it as I see fit, just like I'll soon own this travesty.

Carly: I'm sorry.

Nikolas: It's all right. I'm really going to enjoy bringing him down.

Maxie: I chose the light blue silk because "Couture" had it planned for spring.

Kate: How did you know that?

Maxie: I have my sources. We scooped them by at least three months. And Federico is very happy to debut his new line with us.

Kate: Yes, well, Clarice says that you refuse to run anything by her.

Maxie: I was just trying to get the magazine out the door.

Kate: Clarice is the junior editor. You are the first assistant. You clearly took quite a lot on. I mean, really, who would wear this kinoflutch to a formal event?

Maxie: Everyone I know.

Olivia: Hey, lay off the kid, will you, Connie? Come on.

Kate: We're busy, Olivia.

Olivia: What's wrong with the pictures?

Kate: It's called a layout.

Olivia: Well, I think it looks great. Just so you know, Maxie wanted to run everything past you. I wouldn't let her because I didn't want you disturbed in the hospital. You should be very grateful to her. She got your magazine out to the stands on time.

Kate: Mm-hm.

Olivia: How you feeling, honey? I heard you got roughed up a little bit.

Kate: What do you want, Olivia?

Olivia: Could you give us a second?

Maxie: Yes, I will send these faxes out.

Olivia: I don't know quite how to say this.

Kate: Sonny's marrying Claudia, isn't he?

Olivia: He's getting engaged as we speak.

Kate: Okay, donít. Donít. You know you would rather have him marry Claudia than me.

Olivia: Are you crazy?

Kate: What? I'm crazy? Now you can convince yourself that you still have a chance.

Claudia: Well, I'm liking the idea of this marriage more and more. Not only does it make sense from a business standpoint -- two for one. I get to save you from getting caught between the cousins from hell.

Sonny: You keep running your filthy mouth, there's not going to be a marriage.

Claudia: Oh.

Sonny: Kate and Olivia are off limits. I don't want you to insult them. I don't want you to call them any names. Just try to avoid them as much as possible. And if you can't, treat them with respect.

Claudia: That's fine for Olivia. I can't stand her, but at least she is who she says she is. I don't know that I can honestly fake any respect for Kate Howard. She's a fake and she's a snob and I'm saving you -- you should be grateful -- from a deadly dull marriage.

Sonny: Then hand over the ring and get out of here.

Elizabeth: Hi, Cameron. Here's a marshmallow. Go ahead and eat it. And here's a cracker for you, Mr. Jake. There you go.

Sam: I need you to do me a favor. You got to listen to your mommy because she's going to tell you a secret, okay?

Elizabeth: Okay, hey, listen. Sam and I are planning... a surprise for you guys out in the living room, okay?

Sam: Big one.

Elizabeth: So it's really important that you stay in this fort. I don't want you coming out at all, okay? You promise me? And I'm going to stay in here for as long as I can, all right?


Sam: I'll be right back.

[Loud noise]

Cameron: What is it, Mommy?

Elizabeth: I don't know -- shh. You know when I tickle your belly...

Elizabeth: Hey, Cameron, take care of your brother for a minute, okay? Okay, baby, I'll be right back. Stay in the fort.

Sam: It's me.

Elizabeth: What was that noise?

Sam: It's part of the surprise. [Muttering] Can I show you?

Elizabeth: Yeah. You guys stay in your fort. I'll be right back.

Cameron: Okay.

[Jake babbles]

Cameron: No, no, no, no, no.

Sam: So the shotgun was on the top shelf over there. I accidentally tipped over some stuff trying to get it. Do you think you could use this if you had to?

Diane: The next time you hypothetically carry out an armed assault on a rival gang, do you think you could possibly change your clothes before the police arrive to arrest you?

Jason: It's not exactly illegal to dress this way.

Diane: That's very true. But as you might have surmised, the PCPD is feeling rather ineffectual right now. Kelly's was a beloved institution. Your coffee house was a known mob hangout, although it sold world class espresso. The fact that both places were easily, almost casually destroyed does not sit well with anyone nor does the fact that the police commissioner's daughter was attacked. So the warehouse explosion looks like obvious and very dangerous retaliation and has everyone on edge. Let's put it simply. The police need a dumping ground for all their anger and frustration. And guess what? It's you.

Jason: Okay, you know, guess what? I don't care because I don't care about the politics. Just get me out of here. I have things to do.

Diane: If that is code for further retaliation, I'm going to strongly advise against it. You cannot afford to be associated with any more violence.

Jason: You know that I'm not going to be connected to that warehouse.

Diane: I have no doubt.

Jason: Well, I don't have time to sit here for 48 hours until the police admit that they have no evidence.

Diane: This might be a good sign. The D.A. just walked in. Let's hope I can get Alexis to listen to reason.

Claudia: Marriage is supposed to be about compromise. So, give and take -- if I agree to treat the people in your life with respect, I expect the same -- no remarks about John or my father.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah, that's fair.

Claudia: And about us, we're not strangers who met in a bar. I'll stop acting like it if you will.

Sonny: Okay.

Claudia: Marriage to me is not going to make you a better person, but I really don't want to bring out the very worst of you, either.

Sonny: Mm-hm.

Claudia: So, I'm never going to be a Madonna, but I don't want to be treated like a whore.

Sonny: Yeah, I -- I understand.

Claudia: I mean, I'm not -- I'm not saying that you have to like me, and -- and nobody's asking you to pretend to love me, but I need you to treat me with consideration and I'll treat you the same. Deal?

Sonny: Deal.

Claudia: Wow, thank you.

Sonny: Yeah, I wanted to do it right.

Claudia: Awesome. It's traditional for you to put it on my finger.

Claudia: I'm not totally clear on all the rules for an arranged marriage, but you putting the ring on my finger would seem pretty standard.

Sonny: The ring is strictly business.

Claudia: Well, I could argue that all engagement rings are business. We're just being honest about it.

Sonny: Yeah, well, you know, after seeing how your father treated you, I understand you a little more, and it's very clear to me how much you love your brother. And the fact you're doing this for the sake of your family, you know, means something. So, everything that's happened between us before, let's just leave that behind us.

Claudia: Okay.

Sonny: And you do know this is going to be very, very difficult for both of us.

Claudia: Sonny, come on. You've survived worse than being married to me.

Sonny: Well, yeah, so you -- we both understand how this works. So, this ring is basically a sign of respect.

Carly: Coleman, I need a beer.

Coleman: You got it.

Carly: Hi. Actually, I'll have whatever she's having.

Olivia: One of those days, too?

Carly: You can't imagine.

Olivia: You know what? When you get a chance, we're going to need a couple of extra shots over here.

Coleman: You got it.

Carly: Wow. I haven't even had the first one.

Olivia: Well, go ahead with that one. When you hear what I've got to say, you'll need an extra, too.

Carly: Okay. Oh. Okay, what?

Olivia: It's official. Sonny's going to marry Claudia Zacchara.

Carly: Oh.

Mac: We have to work together on this, Alexis. Look, I know you have history with Jason and you're friends with Diane, but we are not talking about some principle of law here. Maxie was attacked, all right? Mike Corbin is still in the hospital. If we don't get this situation under control, a lot of innocent people are going to get hurt.

Alexis: I agree.

Diane: Well, this does not look good.

Jason: How can you tell?

Diane: Strictly speaking, it is never to your advantage for the police commissioner and the district attorney to be getting along. Alexis is on edge. The political pressure is getting brutal. Jerry is presumed dead and the fact that she was known to be openly involved with him makes her look bad. Now, if she were to go easy on you, it would look even worse.

Jason: They have no evidence.

Diane: Point taken. All right, I will see what I can do.

Diane: Alexis, I'm so glad you're here. I know you share my concern about what's happening in this city.

Alexis: I'm district attorney. It's my job to be here.

Diane: Well, that's certainly true, but since you have arrested my client for no reason and there's no evidence, you need to let him go.

Mac: Not gonna happen.

Alexis: Can I talk to Diane in private for a minute?

Alexis: All right, look, this is a good time for you to step down from this case. Let Jason get another lawyer or let him rely on a public defender.

Diane: And walk away from my retainer? Not a chance.

Alexis: Diane, I am looking out for you, lawyer to lawyer. This is not a case you want to lose. It will be too public. And in the interest of public safety, you don't want to win it, either. You need to distance yourself from this because this time, Jason has gone too far.

Elizabeth: I have never used -- uh -- fired a shotgun before.

Sam: Okay, then what about this?

Elizabeth: Yeah, Jason taught me how to use one of those --

Sam: Fine, you take this, I will take the shotgun.

Elizabeth: Um, you're going to have to tell me again. Just remind me --

Sam: Okay. Okay, this -- this here -- this is the safety. Make sure it stays off, because the gun is loaded. Do not point it at anybody unless you're prepared to use it and look, if you give somebody, like, a second to think about it, they're going to start playing mind games with you, so just keep reminding yourself it's either you or them. That's it.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Sam: Okay?

Elizabeth: How many guys do you think are out there?

Sam: I don't know. I only saw one.

Elizabeth: Do you think he saw you?

Sam: Yes, he saw us. He followed us here, Elizabeth. Yeah.

Elizabeth: When are they going to come after us?

Sam: I don't know. They're probably making sure that we're alone right now.

Elizabeth: Wasn't Lucky going to come up here after work and check on us?

Sam: We just need to focus on us right now, and right now we're alone. They're probably not going to assume that we have guns, that we're armed, so it's actually working in our favor. Elizabeth, you just need to stay calm, okay?

Elizabeth: Okay. I'm going to go check on the boys.

Sam: Good idea.

[Jake babbles]

Elizabeth: Sam... look, I know we've had our differences, but will you please promise me that no matter what happens tonight, you'll protect my boys?

Elizabeth: Thank God the boys are asleep. But they're going to wake up if we have to start shooting.

Sam: Yeah, I know, but we have them as safe as we can.

Elizabeth: Cameron is going to be so terrified if he wakes up to gunshots.

Sam: You can't think about that right now. Look, Elizabeth, what you asked me to promise before? Letting that woman walk away with Jake in the park is probably the worst thing that I've ever done and I don't expect you to ever forgive me for that. But I promise you I will not let anything happen to either one of those boys. I will lay down my life for them.

Elizabeth: But it's not going to come to that, right?

Elizabeth: This is all happening because of Jason. He warned me to stay away from him. Everyone warned me to stay away from him and I wouldn't listen. And because I wouldn't listen, now my boys are in danger and --

[Elizabeth sighs]

Sam: You've got to stop second-guessing yourself, okay? All we need to focus on right now is keeping those boys safe. So you need to take a deep breath and just let the adrenaline kick in.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Sam: You've gone through hell to keep those kids safe. You're strong enough to get through this.

Kate: How difficult is it to make a drinkable cup of coffee?

Maxie: I would be glad to make you another cup.

Kate: Right, which is not the same as making it right the first time. Maxie, do you not think for a moment that I believe Olivia made a single choice in this issue? I know that you took over. The theme is off topic. The message is diffused. The styles are way too erratic. You know, I do, I want some coffee.

Maxie: Kate, I get that you're upset. But I just got out of the hospital and I'm here doing the best that I can. And I think I did an okay job running things while you were gone, even though Clarice tried to undercut me every step of the way. I am really sorry that you and Sonny aren't together anymore. I think it's very unproductive of you to take it out on me.

Kate: I would appreciate it, Maxie, if you spent a little less time on my personal life and a little more on being first assistant.

[Doorbell rings]

[Door opens]

Maxie: Hi.

Jax: Hi, Maxie. Nice work on the issue. Numbers are way up.

Kate: That will be all, Maxie.

Maxie: Okay.

Jax: See you later.

Maxie: Thanks. Bye.

Jax: You've got some assistant there.

Kate: Uh-huh.

Jax: She turned what could have been a disaster for "Crimson" into the best numbers we've ever seen, especially with the youth demographic --

Kate: You know what? I don't want to talk about the magazine.

Jax: That's fine.

Kate: No, I donít. You know what I want to do? I want to celebrate. I want to celebrate not making the worst mistake of my life.

Jax: I know exactly what you mean.

Carly: You know, I'm not at all surprised that Sonny is marrying Claudia Zacchara. I'm not. I'm a little sad, but not --

Olivia: By that, you mean jealous?

Carly: No.

Olivia: No?

Carly: No. We have children. There's always going to be a connection. Of course, I will always care if he lives or dies. But beyond that, I -- I really want to say that I don't care, but I can't because I do and I don't know why. I can't even explain it, you know? Even when I hate him, I know Sonny better than anybody else and he knows me the same. And if he ever needs me, because eventually he always does, I will be there for him like a big, fat sucker.

Olivia: Some guys just have that effect, I guess.

Carly: Sonny has this hold on me. And because of that hold, it ruins every single relationship I try to have.

Olivia: Well, maybe you don't want the other ones to work out. Maybe you're just looking for an excuse to go back to Sonny.

Carly: No. Jax was the perfect man for me. And I hurt him so badly, I have no idea what he's going to do.

Claudia: You know, it's ironic. I spent all these years swearing that I would never get married, and here I am, getting married to help out the family that taught me to avoid marriage.

Sonny: I still don't know what you're getting out of it.

Claudia: What, you mean besides you as my husband and the honor of being the third Mrs. Sonny Corinthos?

Sonny: Yeah, that's what I mean.

Claudia: My father needs me for the first time in my life, and that feels good.

Sonny: You do understand that I call every shot... for your father, for you, even for your brother?

Claudia: That's fine. John's not ready to take over. Just don't try to cut him out.

Sonny: We'll see what we can, you know, we can do with him. I mean, it depends on where he's at and all that.

Claudia: Okay, that sounds fair.

Sonny: And just so we're clear, everything that happened last spring with Michael disappearing -- you know, I blamed your family and Johnny and I punished Johnny. I feel bad about that. It was my mistake.

Claudia: Yes, it was. John and I would never be involved in anything that had anything to do with hurting a child.

Sonny: I don't hold your -- you know, your family responsible. I don't hold a grudge against Johnny or against you.

Jax: So, what are we drinking to?

Kate: Ah, mistakes. And the promise to do better next time.

Jax: You know, Sonny's doing you a favor.

[Kate chuckles]

Jax: He deserves Claudia. You're better off without him. You know that.

Kate: Right. Well, I guess I could say the same for you, right? You're finally free.

Jax: I guess you can say that. To freedom, then.

Kate: To freedom.

Olivia: Cards on the table. All things being equal, if you had to pick between Sonny and Jax, which one would you pick? Not the one you think you should pick. The one who's in your heart.

Carly: Jax. For a long time, I would have said Sonny. And even though I can't stay away from him, he's not in my heart the way Jax is. But I'm really good at trashing what's good in my life. That's my specialty.

Olivia: You know what? Don't give up. Because sometimes these things have a way of working out when you least expect it to.

Carly: No, this wonít. It's not going to happen. Cards on the table.

Olivia: Right. Right here.

Carly: How much did Sonny matter to you back in the day?

Olivia: A lot. More than I ever let anybody know.

Carly: How much does he matter to you now?

Claudia: To a respectful and successful arrangement.

Sonny: I'll drink to that.

Claudia: So, I assume we're going to be living here in the fortress?

Sonny: I told the maid you can have any room you want except mine.

Claudia: Probably a good call. I'm kind of a slob.

Sonny: That's not what concerns me.

Claudia: So, you want out already, don't you?

Sonny: Oh, no, no, no. Just the opposite. I want to get married soon.

Claudia: How soon?

Sonny: Tonight.

Alexis: The commissioner believes that he has a strong case against you. He also believes he has all the evidence he needs to tie you to the destruction of the Russian warehouse.

Diane: You cannot hold my client based on what the commissioner thinks or believes.

Alexis: Mac is doing his job and I finally am going to do mine. The violence in Port Charles is so out of hand, we are all becoming numb and immune to it.

Diane: You still can't hold my client without any evidence.

Alexis: He's wearing the same clothes he wore when he blew up the warehouse.

Diane: Oh, yes, by all means, let's take that in front of a judge. Your Honor, we're charging this man because his wardrobe choices indicate criminal intent.

Alexis: Goes to a pattern of behavior.

Diane: So, basically, what you're saying is, you have no evidence, so you're going to rely on speculation.

Alexis: You know what? You're right, Diane. I should just continue to make allowances for him, really, because he is, after all, the "good mobster" after all the bad guys in Port Charles. He is the good bad guy, so we'll just let him off the hook, right? Wrong. We are done. As of now, my job is to prosecute criminals, not protect them. And I'm going to hold him here until I get enough evidence against him.

Diane: Which means that you will be the one breaking the law.

Alexis: I will find the evidence against him, don't worry. In fact, I will make it my personal job to see you are tried and convicted, Jason. Enough is enough. You have caused so much pain and suffering in this city. It's time for you to pay.

Elizabeth: How can you be so calm? I'm about to come out of my skin.

Sam: You're calm in the operating room, right? Or when someone comes crashing into the E.R.?

Elizabeth: That's completely different.

Sam: No, you know what you're doing there; I know what I'm doing here.

Elizabeth: But aren't you scared?

Sam: A little bit, yeah. I mean, definitely. But, you know, I kind of feel lit up inside. I can hear better, I can see better, my reflexes are sharper. If somebody is ready to fight me, I'm definitely ready to fight back.

Elizabeth: I wish I could be that confident.

Sam: It's survival, not confidence. If you've got to kill to protect your children, you will. You'll do whatever you have to do.

Elizabeth: How long do you think this is going to take?

Sam: I have no idea.

Elizabeth: The longer we wait, the better the chance Jason or lucky will come get us, right? Because they're going to call and get a busy signal and they're going to know something's wrong, right?

Sam: Yeah, it's possible. Hang on, stay still.

Sam: Okay, I don't see anything.

Elizabeth: Maybe they're gone. Maybe they gave up or they got called away or they decided we're not a threat anymore.
