Olivia: Why are we even talking about Sonny? Either we've had way too much to drink or not enough.
Carly: That's not fair. You asked me who I would choose, Sonny or Jax, and I told you --
Olivia: What kind of name is Jax?
Carly: Oh, my God. Really? Answer the question. You and Sonny had a past. How do you feel about him now?
Olivia: What difference does it make?
Carly: Well, there's my answer.
Claudia: You want to get married tonight?
Sonny: Yeah. It's a business deal, not a romance.
Claudia: You could make it sound a little less like a root canal. Make a girl feel a little better about herself.
Sonny: So why are you stalling? You don't want to do it?
Claudia: You didnít. In fact, you swore that it would never happen. And now, apparently, it can't happen soon enough?
Sonny: Well, yeah, I did everything to avoid it. But circumstances dictate, so if we're going to get married, we might as well do it. Unless you want to back out.
Alexis: I fully intend to tie you to the explosions at the warehouse on Water Street for the slayings of the two Russian nationals.
Diane: I realize that you are angry and that you are frustrated, and --
Alexis: I am doing my job as D.A., and it's about time that I started doing it. It's my responsibility.
Diane: Which, apparently, is very selective because I don't recall you being nearly this vehement about building a case against Jerry Jacks. In fact, I don't recall you making any effort whatsoever to fulfill your professional responsibility where he was concerned.
Alexis: That is an entirely different subject.
Diane: It is not, Alexis. Jerry Jacks pulled one over on you and now you are trying to redeem yourself in the public's and possibly your own eyes at the expense of my client. That is not justice, that is hypocrisy.
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.
[Gunshot and breaking glass]
Elizabeth: Oh, my God. My boys.
Sam: Don't move.
Elizabeth: I've got to go.
Claudia: I'm not backing out. But when you don't believe in love and you don't need the money, you don't think about marriage. And here I am engaged. You dragged your feet about this for weeks, and now you just want to snap your fingers and be husband and wife just like that?
Sonny: No, I want to close the deal. Karpov syndicate is raising hell, and I need your family to shove them back into the hole they crawled out of. Your father's organization has strategic holdings and firepower. And it would be double what they have now if you guys didn't fight all the time.
Claudia: Oh, you mean as compared to the love fest that you have going on with Jason Morgan?
Sonny: You know, I can turn your family's name into something that commands respect and fear. You'll be in a position so your brother will be protected at all times from your father, from anyone. All I've got to do is convince Anthony that I'm serious and then we're all going to get what we want.
Claudia: I'm impressed. Your reputation isn't just talk.
Sonny: How about you?
Claudia: I have to go home. Change into something a little more bridal, and I'll be right back. Bye, honey.
Coleman: Uno, dos. Hey, if you beautiful girls decide you've had too much, I've got a sweet little room in the back where we can all sleep it off.
Carly: How many times have I told you no?
Coleman: Yeah, but you've only got to say once, yes. Hey, that goes for you, too, Bensonhurst. What are you laughing about?
Olivia: Name's Olivia. And I'm not that drunk, yet.
Carly: Oh, that's okay. Coleman knows better than to take advantage. He knows that would make Jason very unhappy.
Coleman: Oh, what, so I should consider Olivia here under Jason's watchful eye?
Carly: Absolutely. Any friend of mine is a friend of Jasonís. And you know how he feels about you hitting on me.
Coleman: The cat has no sense of romance. But I'm not giving up hope. On either of you.
Olivia: He's hot. A living, breathing mistake of the type I have made many, many times.
Carly: God, we all have regrets, don't we?
Olivia: Who says I regret it? Anyway, my point is, you're married to Jax, hung up on Sonny, and then Jason's the name you throw down with. What's up with that?
Carly: Jason? Well, Jason's my best friend. He used to be friends with Sonny, too. If they ever could have fixed it, they can't if he marries Claudia.
Olivia: What a piece of work.
Carly: I don't know which is worse -- Sonny marrying Claudia or Sonny marrying Kate. I mean, if Sonny marries Claudia, at least he knows what he's getting himself into, right? He can put his guards up. But if he married Kate -- I mean, are you kidding me? He actually fooled himself into believing he was in love with her.
Olivia: Well, I think -- I think he loved Connie, the girl that he knew back in high school. You know, back when life was a big chocolate cake.
Olivia: Well --
Carly: But now she's Kate Howard. She's a snob. She's a fake. She's a phony.
Olivia: Yeah, okay, she can be all those things. I tell you what she's not, she's not a pushover. Make no mistake, Connieís pissed that she lost out here. And if you are on her spit list, you better watch your back.
Kate: Okay, so we just shared our second kiss. And, you know, unlike the first one, I'm not going to -- I'm not going to rack myself with guilt over it. No, in fact, after all these intense months of being business partners, it's like -- I don't know -- seeing you for the first time, right? Kind of took my breath away.
Jax: Is this sudden appreciation because of my irresistible charm, or because you want to get even with Carly?
Kate: What if it's a little of both?
Jax: That would be okay with me.
Diane: You have arrested and have detained my client without one shred of evidence.
Alexis: I can hold him 48 hours without charging him.
Diane: And why is that? Because you can?
Alexis: I've been Jason's attorney, too. So regardless of how we feel about him personally, he has committed crime after crime --
Diane: Very, very careful, Alexis.
Alexis: And he has not paid the price.
Diane: You are dangerously close to a breach of ethics.
Alexis: It is time, Diane, that the law won.
Diane: You mean it's time you won.
Spinelli: Gracious greetings to the two ladies of law and order.
Alexis: Sorry, Spinelli, he's not allowed visitors.
Diane: Now you're just being petty.
Spinelli: I can provide Stone Cold with an alibi.
Alexis: I'm sure you can. You'll lie for him. Carly will lie for him. You'll lie for him. Everybody's going to lie for him.
Diane: Any different than those who lie to themselves?
Alexis: Thanks. Five minutes and be my guest coming up with a plausible explanation for why he's dressed like a commando.
Spinelli: Deepest apologies. Had I not delayed you with my ill-timed confession, you could have changed into less incriminating attire. However, I shall redeem myself by providing means --
Jason: No, no, no. I do not want you committing perjury to get me released.
Spinelli: Stone Cold can rest at ease. You shall soon be a man of freedom. I have it all under control.
[Gunshot and glass shattering]
Sam: Don't move.
Sam: Because we want them to think that we're dead.
Elizabeth: Won't they come inside and check?
Sam: I hope so.
Elizabeth: So we let them think we're dead, they come in, and then what?
Cameron's voice: Mommy!
Sam: No, no, no. Shh. Don't call out. Don't say a word.
Elizabeth: He needs me.
Sam: The boys also need to get out of here with their mother. The Russians followed us from the house. They know the boys are here.
Sam: Here. Stay close. This ain't over. Not by a long shot.
Spinelli: Master's release is at hand. I am a puppet master.
Jason: Okay, listen to me. If you're doing this to make up for going after the Russians --
Spinelli: Okay, yes, I regret going against the master's wishes.
Jason: I know you want them to pay for what they did to Maxie.
Spinelli: No, no, but see, I am just as much to blame. I put fair Maximista in danger because I walked the stone cold way. Maximista's noble and understandably distressed head of household forced me to face that dread realization.
Jason: Mac told you to stay away from Maxie?
Spinelli: Yeah, see, I know your secret pain. I am a fellow lone wolf.
Jason: Just don't get yourself in trouble for my sake, okay?
Spinelli: Rest at ease. I know my place in the stone cold world and because of that, I have reverted back to what I know -- cyberspace.
Jason: What does that mean?
Spinelli: Behold my potent prowess. That scowling man of maturity hails from Interpol. I jackaled into agency communications and created an "official" version of the recent warehouse explosions and fatal shootings.
Jason: You did what?
Spinelli: Interpol now suspects they are the acts of a rival Slavic gang of ruthless gun runners. As we speak, all evidence related to the case is being seized. Without evidence, D.A. Davis has no cause to hold you.
Kate: Man, I used to pride myself on knowing what I wanted and weighing the costs of getting it.
Jax: Yeah, I used to know when to quit.
Kate: Hmm, like you should have with Carly?
Jax: You blame Carly because you can't bring yourself to blame Sonny, who is really at fault.
Kate: Let's just say I used to know when to quit, too.
Jax: Only took, what, two bullets to convince you?
Kate: Ha ha ha. It's not funny, Jax.
Kate: I -- I don't think we have anything --
Sonny: I have something to tell you.
Sonny: In private.
Kate: No. Actually, you can say whatever you have to say in front of Jax or not at all.
Sonny: Okay, listen, I'm not going to -- whatever. You know, I don't want to get into what I need to get into. Okay, I'm just going to tell you. I am marrying Claudia Zacchara tonight.
Kate: Yeah, Olivia told me.
Kate: I didn't know it was happening this soon.
Sonny: You know I don't love Claudia. You know I love you.
Kate: You love me?
Kate: You love me, Sonny? We obviously have a different definition for the word. So you said what you came to say. You've eased your guilty conscience, so you can just go now. Sony: Look, this is uncomfortable for me, okay? But I know what you're doing, and you're doing because you're hurt. I'm just telling you, don't do anything stupid.
Kate: I've already done that.
Jax: Well done.
Carly: Michael's shooting changed Sonny.
Olivia: You'd think.
Carly: It changed all of us. You have any kids?
Olivia: A son.
Carly: Yeah. Imagine seeing him shot, fighting for his life, and then slipping into a coma. First, you just look for anyone to blame. Then you blame yourself. And that's what Sonny did. He turned his back on the ugly truth and started living some fantasy.
Olivia: Right, like getting out of the mob and making a life with Connie.
Carly: You know, just living a lie.
Olivia: God, that man is just making one bad choice after another. I tell you, I mean, my cousin, she can be shallow and a pain in the neck, but she's no black widow whack-job like Claudia Zacchara.
Carly: Someone should talk to him.
Olivia: Someone already tried.
Carly: Someone should try again.
Olivia: All right. What do I have here? How about this -- heads, you go talk to Sonny. Tails, I'll do it.
Carly: Okay, you got it. I like this game.
Elizabeth: Why are we just sitting here?
Sam: We're buying time.
Elizabeth: We're just going to wait for them to come get us?
Sam: Wait, sit, sit.
Elizabeth: What are you doing?
Sam: I am protecting your children. As hard as it may be, given our past and everything, I know. You've just got to trust me. You've got to do what I say, okay? I've been counting bullets, and we're really low on ammunition. We don't have any to waste, and the longer it takes for them to make their next move outside, the better chance we have of Jason or Lucky coming here.
Elizabeth: How do you do this?
Sam: I don't know. I just do. You know, it's nothing I choose. My father, he always operated on the edge of the law and having a little girl really came in handy. He used me for all his cons. It's probably the only reason why he kept me around.
Elizabeth: That's so sad.
Sam: I know, but, you know, it was what it was. What was I going to do? I can remember one time we moved into a new town because an insurance scam went bad, and we get a knock on the door and I open it up, and it's my dad's mark standing there. And he had a tire iron in his hand. And sure enough, I mean, he showed up the intention of putting my old man out for good. But the point of this story is it was the first time that I had ever pointed a gun at someone, and I was eight.
Elizabeth: And you shot him?
Sam: Well, I shot at his feet. It's the only thing I knew. It's what I saw in the old western cowboy movies. But I didn't have good aim because I blew his big toe off.
Cameron's voice: Mommy?
Elizabeth: I have to go to him.
Sam: Okay. Elizabeth, I will -- I swear to you, I will give my life to protect your children, okay?
Jason: We're in a different world now, Spinelli. After 9/11, agencies like Interpol are tracking information a lot more closely.
Spinelli: Okay, just as the street-smart Stone Cold has his finesse with firearms, so the Jackal runs like a silent river under the radar in the world of technology. I left no trace of my intrusion. I made clear study of Interpol policy. See, their investigation takes precedence regardless of rights of jurisdiction. Observe.
Spinelli: Your release is imminent.
Jason: You really need to be careful.
Spinelli: Look, I just -- I just hope to restore my credibility.
Diane: Your alibi won't be necessary, Mr. Grasshopper. Mr. Karpov and his gang have their fair share of enemies, and it seems a rival drug cartel is now suspected of blowing up the warehouse on Water Street. Interpol is taking over the case, and they are taking with them all the collected evidence. Which means --
Alexis: You're free to go.
Claudia: I thought you might like to know I'm getting married tonight.
Anthony: Good. Sonny's a man of his word.
Claudia: And what am I?
Anthony: A beautiful daughter, at last doing what you know is in the best interest of the family.
Claudia: Everybody gets what they want.
Anthony: Especially you, Claudia. You'll literally be in bed with all that power.
Claudia: I thought we'd do it at Sonnyís.
Anthony: No. It happens here. I want this done my way. I'll start making arrangements.
Claudia: Candles and flowers?
Anthony: Ah, my son, you're home just in time.
Johnny: For what?
Anthony: You can be a witness. Your sister is marrying Sonny tonight.
Johnny: If Claudia marries Sonny, I walk away from this family for good.
Kate: Would you do the honors?
Kate: Oh, you know you're the only reason that I'm not running out that door and back to him, right? I mean, that's what he wanted, right? That's what he wants me to do, to go after him.
Jax: If you go after Sonny, let me tell you what will happen. He will break off his engagement with Claudia. He'll tell you that he loves you and then, somehow, he'll find his way back to Carly because that's what always happens. And because misery loves company. What we should do is rise above it.
Kate: Okay. To Sonny and Carly. May they wind up hurting each other as much as they've hurt us.
Max: Claudia Zacchara called. Her father wants you two married at his house. Apparently, he's taking care of things.
Sonny: Well, what's the father of the bride supposed to do, Max?
Max: Boss, this isn't a very good idea.
Sonny: I've had my share of good ideas. Where did it get me?
[Knock on door]
Carly: I hear you're going to marry Claudia Zacchara.
Sonny: What are you going to do to stop me?
Johnny: I can't believe you're just throwing your life away like this.
Claudia: I'm getting this out of this, too, Johnny. Things that I need. Things I don't have. Things for you.
Johnny: You have her believing that selling herself off like cattle is the only way to bring Sonny into this organization and build it up.
Anthony: And we'll be that much stronger when it's time for you to take over.
Johnny: I don't care. I don't want it. You're buying me an empty, miserable life. You know that?
Anthony: It's too late, John. Just sit back and let your sister do this for you.
Johnny: If the two of you go through with this, I am out.
Johnny: I mean it. I will walk away from this business, from this family, from you.
Anthony: Talk some sense to your brother, Claudia. I got things to do.
Claudia: Johnny, please. I know you don't like it, but I have to do this.
Johnny: What? Marry a guy who will kill you if he finds out that you put his son in a coma?
Claudia: I'm not planning on bringing that up on my wedding night or ever.
Johnny: There is plenty of time for that truth to come out, Claudia. Plenty of people know.
Claudia: Like who? You, me, Daddy?
Johnny: Nikolas Cassadine.
Claudia: There's nobody for him to tell. John, Johnny, I need you here with me. I love you, and you are the only person that I trust.
Johnny: Hey, and I love you, too, Claudia. Which is why I don't want you taking this risk to get me something that I don't want. Unless you're lying to yourself and thinking that once you and Sonny are married, he's going to fall in love with you.
Claudia: I'm doing this.
Johnny: Then I won't stand by and watch.
Claudia: Johnny, please. I need you here with me.
Johnny: The bride wears black, huh? Mourning your choice already.
Carly: Do not do this.
Sonny: I have my reasons.
Carly: There's not a good enough reason in the world to marry Claudia Zacchara.
Sonny: I need to know the truth.
Carly: The truth about what, Sonny?
Sonny: Okay, through everything, up until the last second, Karpov said he didn't shoot Kate. What if he was telling the truth?
Carly: Who then? The Zaccharas?
Sonny: I don't know. Ric, Anthony, Claudia. All I'm saying is I will be in a position to find out.
Carly: No, you're going to be in a position to die, because someone is going to be waiting to double-cross you, and they are going to take you out.
Sonny: I'm willing to take that chance.
Carly: Does Jason know about this?
Sonny: What? There's no need to bring him up right now. I just want you to do something for me, okay?
Carly: What's that?
Sonny: Okay, if you don't want to do it for yourself, do it for Morgan. Take the gun.
Sonny: I am marrying Claudia tonight. Look --
Carly: Do not do this. Do not do this.
Sonny: It's no secret that you are my ex-wife. We have kids together. Right? You gave me the alibi when Karpov died. The syndicate could be coming after you. You need to protect yourself and protect Morgan. Un.
Carly: What about Kate? Does she know you're going to marry Claudia tonight?
Sonny: I went over to her place to tell her, and she was with Jax.
Carly: Doing what?
Sonny: She acted like she didn't give a damn, but I know she was hurt. But it's better that Kate's hurt than dead.
Kate: No, Clarice, I told you I already sent it. Well, why don't you look harder? Thank you.
Jax: What's that?
Kate: Oh, just one of the dozens of seating arrangements for my wedding with Sonny. I agonized over this.
Kate: Okay, thanks.
Jax: Agony over?
Kate: So you want to tell me how wronged you've been?
Jax: No, I donít.
Kate: You sure?
Jax: Instead of talking about those -- those things, let's just forget about the past. Let's move on to something a little more fun.
Kate: Well, you know what they say -- living well is the best revenge.
Jax: Yeah, they say that Ė
Alexis: Did you come here for another assault? Why don't you just take a bat to my head?
Diane: Oh, come on. Why don't we leave our lawyer hats off for a while? Mine wreaks havoc with my hair. When we're on the job, we do what we have to do for our clients. Right now, I am off the clock and here for my friend.
Alexis: You went after me personally, friend.
Diane: Mm-hmm, I did. To prove a point.
Alexis: Do you honestly believe that I didn't know Jerry was up to his neck in criminal activity and that my daughter might be telling the truth when she said that he set her up? I was trying to set him up. The righteous indignation was to make him comfortable enough so that he would slip up.
Diane: And then you were going to what? Turn him in?
Alexis: What does it matter, anyway? The harbor patrol said that he's blown into oblivion. Saves me the trouble of having to break up with him.
Diane: I know that you wanted to believe that Jerry had changed for his brother.
Alexis: I believed Jerry had changed so that I might have someone to be with every now and then. I wanted to have somebody --
Diane: You want what we all want.
Elizabeth: I calmed the boys down the best I could.
Sam: Well, it's still quiet out there. Listen, you have three bullets left.
Elizabeth: Okay, what about you?
Sam: I'm out. Go back with the boys.
Elizabeth: And leave you out here alone?
Sam: Just do it, please. If it starts sounding rough out here, I want you to take the boys and jump out of the window. I'll make a diversion.
Elizabeth: Are you crazy? I'm not going to leave you out here alone --
Sam: I can take care of myself. Start acting like a mother. Go.
Elizabeth: The car --
Sam: Do not even go to the car. The first thing they probably did was mess with the engine or slice the tires. Just go, please.
[Gunshots and glass shattering]
Elizabeth: Is he --
Sam: Yeah, he's dead. You need to get down. Elizabeth. Are you -- are you okay?
Elizabeth: I don't know.
Sam: You saved my life.
Elizabeth: Take this. I don't ever want to touch it again.
Sam: Listen to me, listen to me. You just need to breathe, okay?
Elizabeth: I just killed a man.
Sam: Yes, who would have killed you and your children. You have to keep reminding yourself of that. It's just -- it's how you're going to get through this.
Elizabeth: Just tell me this is over.
Sam: I hope so.
Elizabeth: Okay. Okay.
Jason: Listen, Bernie, I'm not going to worry about a fire in an empty storehouse on the outside of town, okay? It just doesn't make any sense for the Russians to target it unless -- unless they're trying to draw my attention away from what they're really up to. Yeah, no. No, no. Right now I'm just going to check in on Elizabeth and the kids and Sam. Yeah, Lucky was supposed to take them up there, but he got called into work. So they went up there on their own. Right, right. I'll just -- listen, I'll call you as soon as I get a chance, okay? There's no cell service up there. So, you're probably going to get a call from the cabin landline on your caller I.D. All right? Hello? Bernie?
Jason: Come on, come on. Answer the phone.
Operator: The number you are calling is currently out of order.
Ric: You look beautiful.
Claudia: Thank you.
Ric: Not the most traditional or auspicious color for a bride-to-be, but, you know, you have to take into account --
Claudia: Daddy called you.
Ric: Ah, daddy summoned me. Looks like I'm going to be part of the family sooner than I thought.
Claudia: I'm glad that you got here early, because I want you to know this doesn't have to change anything between us, Ric.
Ric: Oh, don't you think that I might have a problem sleeping with my brother's wife?
Claudia: Some men would, but I think in your eyes, it just makes me a hotter ticket.
Trevor: Don't tell me, Richie. Are you the best man?
Ric: It depends on the job, Trevor.
Trevor: Well, mazal tov. And you, Claudia, finally you decided to make yourself useful.
Claudia: Unlike you, who gets more expendable every day.
Anthony: Hey, is that any way for family to act?
Trevor: And where is John?
Claudia: He couldn't make it.
Anthony: Oh, good. The padre's here. Claudia, introduce yourself. Ric, Trevor.
Claudia: I know you.
Walter: And my wife. You came by my office one night. Are you and Mr. Morgan going to have another try at this?
Claudia: Um, same bride, different groom. He -- actually, here he is now.
Anthony: Sonny. This is a happy occasion. Claudia, greet your husband-to-be.
Claudia: Hello, husband-to-be. Are you ready to get married?
Jax: I feel like I'm taking advantage of you.
Kate: No, no, no, no. You're helping me. I'd like to think that I'm helping, too.
Lulu: Oh, my gosh. I was getting so worried.
Johnny: I was up at the bluff when I called you.
Lulu: Okay, since you got here that fast, that means you were driving a little too fast on the small, winding road.
Johnny: I needed a rush, but it's nothing compared to seeing you.
Lulu: What is going on?
Johnny: I did it. I walked out on my family.
Lulu: You -- well -- what about your sister? I mean, you live with her to protect her, right?
Johnny: Well, I don't think that's going to be an issue. I would imagine that tonight she'll be moving into casa de Corinthos after they get married.
Johnny: Yeah, my father thinks that I'll come back. He -- he is basically dangling the power in front of me, thinks I'll want it, but I want nothing to do with it. I want to get as far away from them as I can, and I want you to come with me. Will you?
Trevor: Sonny, Kate's finally going to get to see you for the violent, selfish piece of humanity that you've always been.
Anthony: Can we get on with this? I need a bride and a groom right over here.
Anthony: Padre, I need a nice, simple, legal ceremony. You noticed how I stressed the word legal? Don't skip a word. Do not leave a loophole.
Claudia: What a sweet way to give me away, Daddy.
Walter: Is there music?
Anthony: Yeah, the angels in heaven are singing. Could we do this?
Walter: Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here to join this man and this woman in holy matrimony. It is ordained for the mutual society, help, and comfort that one ought to have the other, both in prosperity and adversity. Therefore, if any man can show just cause why they might not be lawfully joined together, speak now or forever hold your peace.
Walter: Do you, Claudia, take Michael for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to honor and cherish, till death do you part?
Claudia: I do.
Walter: Do you, Michael, take Claudia for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to honor and cherish, till death do you part?
Singer: It just made me crazy waiting for so long 'cause I still close my eyes every time I hear our sound I still dream of you and to just let go
Elizabeth: Jake! Jake! Jake!
Jason: What? What -- what -- what happened?
Sam: The Russians took Jake.
