[Knock on door]
Carly: Come in.
Jax: Thanks. You moved out of the hotel.
Carly: Yeah, Morgan and I decided to spend Christmas here.
Jax: Yeah, I wish you would have told me. If only just, you know, to know where to bring his present.
Carly: I didn't want to have another argument about our divorce. Or say things we don't mean. You know, this Christmas is going to be hard enough.
Jax: Hey, hey, hey. How you doing, Morgan?
Morgan: Is that for me?
Jax: Yes, it is. And we're going to put it under the tree as soon as it's decorated.
Morgan: Are you going to spend Christmas with us?
Jerry's voice: Now, there are several DVDs hidden throughout the Corinthos house and grounds. Each one contains a clue to the location of the next DVD, but the real prize is on the last DVD. That's the one that reveals your part in little Michaelís shooting.
Sonny: What are you hiding?
Jason: Where's Sam?
Sasha: You can't expect me to make this easy for you.
Jason: Just let me talk to her for a second.
Sasha: Well, Sam can't come to the phone right now. And if you don't find her soon, she won't survive at all.
Anna: Hi, Robin. Hey, honey. I'm back. I got all that stuff in London you wanted. Oops. I'm back. Lots of treats. Tons.
Robert: Hi, honey, I'm home.
Anna: You know better then to creep up on me life that.
Robert: Good to see that age has dampened your reflexes.
Anna: Oh, my God, I could have hurt you. Does your oncologist know? What are you doing? Are you trying to kill yourself?
Jax: Lady Jane misses Jerry very much, and I don't want her to be alone on Christmas, so I'm going to go spend it with her.
Morgan: Can she come here?
Carly: Well, Lady Jane wants to be at her house for Christmas, kind of like we want to be here. And Jax is her son, so she needs him with her the way I need you with me.
Jax: Okay. I'll tell you what, since I'm not going to be here Christmas morning to watch you unwrap this, maybe your mom will let you unwrap this now so I can see if you like it.
Morgan: Can I?
Carly: I think that's a great idea.
Jax: Go for it. Rip it up.
Morgan: What is it?
Jax: It's a video gaming system.
Carly: "V-tech V-motion"?
Jax: That's right. I promise you're going to like it just as much as Morgan. All right. Let me help you set this thing up.
Jax: Okay. Take it out of the box. There I go.
Claudia: My computer is off-limits, Sonny. You just stay out of it.
Sonny: I though you wanted me to trust you.
Claudia: What I want is for you to respect my privacy.
Sonny: Well, you should have thought of that when you logged on in the middle of my living room. It's obvious whatever you got there you don't want me to see it.
Claudia: Well, yeah, because it's about the Christmas present that I'm getting you.
Sonny: Here's what I want -- nothing. I am not celebrating the holidays this year, all right? And you wasted your --
Claudia: I don't consider a Christmas tree a waste of time.
Sonny: What the hell have you done?
Jason: What do you want?
Sasha: More than I can say in a phone call. Meet me in an hour, Pier 52.
Jason: If anything happens, I know who to blame.
Sasha: Play nice, Mr. Morgan. Right now I'm your only chance at saving her.
Spinelli: The jackal can only surmise that the Slavic seductress is holding fair Samantha captive.
Jason: She knows where Sam is, and she said she'll tell me if I meet her on the pier.
Spinelli: You can't go.
Jason: Unless you find Sam, what am I supposed to do? What choice do I have?
Spinelli: But then when you're felled by a sniper bullet, what good will you be to Sam or any of us?
Morgan: This is so cool.
Jax: I think he likes it.
Carly: Morgan, did you say thank you to Jax for giving you such a great gift?
Jax: Nah, that's okay. Let him play. He might not even know it, but he's actually learning as well.
Carly: It's a thoughtful gift.
Jax: No, he's an incredible kid.
Woman's voice: Congratulations, you have completed the puzzle.
Carly: Hey, sweetie, let me have that. Come here. Look, I need to talk to Jax for a minute and --
Carly: Can you do that?
Jax: Yeah, I'm glad he likes it.
Carly: No, really, thank you. Thank you for being such a great stepfather. Morgan's lost a lot this year. You know, Michael and his father have disappeared out of his life. He shouldn't have to lose you, too, so thank you.
Jax: Yeah, you know I love Morgan. I'll never abandon him.
Carly: We'll be thinking about you on Christmas.
Jax: I'll be thinking about you, too. About how much has changed since last Christmas. When Michael was still around, and we were a family. I'll probably be asking myself, how the hell did we get here?
Sonny: Who gave you permission to dig these out?
Claudia: They were lying around in a box. I just wanted to make this --
Sonny: You wanted, but I told you I didn't want this Christmas tree or anything, but you didn't listen. I mean, look, you have no right to hang this up.
Claudia: Look, you can yell at me all you want, if it makes you feel better, but you're not mad at me. I'm not the one you're mad at. You're mad at God or the universe or whoever you think you can blame. You're mad because the little boy that made that ornament is in a coma and might never wake up, and if yelling at me makes you feel better, then have at it.
Sonny: It wasn't God or the universe who caused Michael to be shot. That was me. And I don't need a damn Christmas tree to remind me.
Patrick: Mrs. Lindsey is stable, but still critical. I put a note in her chart to notify me if anything changes.
Epiphany: What about on Christmas?
Patrick: If that's when it happens, then that's when I'm needed.
Matt: No. If it happens on Christmas, you call me.
Patrick: Okay, first of all, you're not taking my patients from me.
Matt: Wait, first of all, I've performed this surgery before, and, secondly, it's not complicated.
Patrick: That's not the point. It's my patient. I can handle it.
Matt: It's Christmas. Don't you want to start some sort of traditions with your family, like mistletoe or carving a pumpkin or something? Anything.
Patrick: Hmm. I take it you're not big on yuletide traditions.
Matt: I'm just saying, you miss the first Christmas, it's that much easier to miss the second, and then all of the sudden, you become the father who's never there. Come on, you have to admit that was kind of deep.
Patrick: Aren't you the one who sneers at warm and fuzzy?
Matt: Hey, consider it a gift to my niece.
Patrick: Wow, apparently the polar ice caps aren't the only thing that's melting.
Matt: Don't make me regret my incredible gesture of kindness, okay?
Patrick: Fine. Then we'll compromise. You can watch my patient on Christmas day, but the day after, you're busy.
Matt: I am?
Patrick: Yes, you have a wedding to go to.
Matt: That didn't work out so well last time.
Patrick: Well, that wasn't your fault. And, besides, I need a best man.
Patrick: Think about it. Let me know.
Robert: I've never felt better. I'm as strong as an ox.
Anna: You're laying it on a bit thick, aren't you?
Robert: I'm in remission. I fooled everyone. I walked away from this.
Anna: Not that I don't trust you, it's just that I don't trust you, so I'm going to call the clinic and make sure that you didn't liberate yourself without your doctor's knowledge.
Robert: We're not into this doubting me again, are you?
Anna: Old habits die hard. Robert, really, if you have compromised your treatment, not to mention your life, I will personally sedate you and get you back to the Swiss Alps myself.
Robert: Read my lips -- I am in remission. Call the clinic if you wish. The only thing they're going to tell you is that I was the worst patient on record.
Anna: I can't tell you how that shocks me to my core. No. Honestly, you can't go jet-setting around the world when you're in treatment.
Robert: Then give me a simple test, come on. Come on.
Anna: What kind of a test?
Robert: I don't know, think of something.
Anna: I canít throw down on a cancer patient.
Robert: You couldn't because I taught you all the moves. Try something else.
Anna: You won't even remember the moves because you're senile.
Robert: I remember everything. Senility occurs in women first.
Anna: We know who's oldest at least.
Anna: I don't know. I think it's clean living. I wouldn't know anything about that.
Robert: You don't have to tell me about clean living. Look, I just --
Robin: What are you doing?
Anna: We're fighting.
Robert: We're playing catch up.
Robin: I don't believe it. Why are you here?
Robert: Because this is where my only daughter is getting married.
Robin: Of course, I am thrilled that you're here, but are you really well enough to travel?
Anna: Oh, please. I have been all through that.
Robert: We'll talk about that later. I want to meet my granddaughter.
Robin: She's trying to see you. She wants to say hello. Here, sit down. You want to meet your grandpa? This is Robert Scorpio. And if you need a hero ever, he is your guy. There you go.
Robert: Aren't you just --
Robert: Too precious for words.
Robin: Here, try this.
Robert: Hang on a sec. You want to be in a level position there. There, oh, yeah. Try the bottle.
Robin: That's what she wants.
Robert: Works for me, too.
Anna: It's just a different formula.
Robert: You know, you are absolute proof that I did something right in this world. Whoopsie. There, try that. You know, I'll let you in on a secret. When I was in that hospital, knocking on heaven's door, part of the secret is it was actually the other place --
Robert: But there was something I felt that I needed to do. And you know what? I'm doing it right now. You, my darling, were definitely worth the fight. There.
Jason: If you can't get a lead on Sam's location, I have to meet with Sasha.
Spinelli: I sense a shift in the force, master.
Jason: What are you talking about?
Spinelli: Well, I have no doubt fair Samantha is worthy of rescue, regardless of the circumstances, and you are not one to sit idly by when the forces of evil do their work. However, I have noticed that many of your rescues are done grudgingly. And that does not seem to be the case with fair Samantha.
Jason: Sam saved Jake. What do you want me to do?
Jax: It's just as well we can't see into the future, all the good times we've had. I'm glad that we didn't know that it was all going to fall apart.
Carly: I don't know how I'm going to get through the holidays. Just when I feel like I'm catching my balance, you know, I just --
Jax: Morgan will help you. And just think of what's best for him. You just take care of the son you have, and it will help you deal with the one that's not here.
Carly: Maybe you're right. Michael loved Christmas, you know. I know if he had a wish, it would be that we're all happy, especially his little brother, so --
Jax: I know, I know. Hey, what did you make for me?
Morgan: It's a card from me to Jane.
Jax: Oh, wow, I'm impressed. You're quite an artist. I love this, it's so Lady Jane.
Morgan: I miss you.
Jax: Hey, I miss you, too. Merry Christmas, Morgan. I'll come and see you as soon as I get back, okay?
Carly: Have a safe flight. And have a merry Christmas.
Jax: Yeah, I will. You have a merry Christmas, too. See you, buddy.
Claudia: It's obvious you didn't put Michael in a coma. The way I hear it, you were the intended target.
Sonny: I should have had guards. Maybe I should have reacted differently when I saw the rifle.
Claudia: Well, maybe you could play it over and over in your head a million times. It's not going to end differently.
Sonny: I know I can't change what happened, but what I can do is to take back control of my life and punish the people who continue -- who just continue to hurt innocent people.
Claudia: Being shot at is just part of the job.
Sonny: Well, you and I know that. But this freak Devlin, he broke the rules. He tried to kill me in front of my own kid. They say he acted alone, but you know what? A doctor involved with drugs tries to take out the head of the most powerful family in Port Charles, on his own. Does that make sense to you?
Claudia: I don't know, but maybe he was crazy.
Sonny: Maybe, maybe. Yeah, maybe. Maybe he wasnít.
Claudia: Look, it's almost Christmas. I mean, Christmas is coming. You miss your kids, and I'm sorry for whatever I did to make that worse for you.
Sonny: The only gift I want is to find out if the man who shot my son had an accomplice.
Claudia: Devlin paid for what he did with his life.
Sonny: That's not enough.
Patrick: Well? Did you think about it?
Matt: I thought about how desperate you must be.
Patrick: Don't tell anybody that. Are you going to be my best man or what?
Matt: What happened to the bartender, Coleman?
Patrick: Coleman will understand if I want my brother there.
Matt: Okay, I mean, you know I had big plans that day. It involved, yeah, a six-pack, a large-screen television, highly-competitive football, and some cheerleaders.
Patrick: Well, that's why they invented DVRs, Matt.
Matt: No, seriously, like real cheerleaders. Okay, look, you don't have to keep compensating for what Noah did. I feel like you're, you know, with all these sentimental gestures, I --
Patrick: You know what? When I became a father, things changed for me. Family became important again. And that hasn't happened since my mom died. The truth is, kids -- actually, everyone, we're shaped by our upbringing.
Matt: Yeah, isn't that a scary thought?
Patrick: Yeah, but it's a fact. You know, we have two choices. People can either follow in the footsteps -- if you're an abuser, you become an abuser. If you're a cheater, you become a cheater. We both know what happened to us, the way Noah raised us. And I'm choosing to go the other way. I want to be a devoted father -- an involved, devoted husband. That's what I'm choosing.
Matt: Yeah, and this is all because your baby -- because Emma smiled at you?
Patrick: Yeah, but that's a hell of a smile.
Matt: Yeah, apparently it was. Look, you don't have to keep making up for what Noah did to me and my mother.
Patrick: I'm not asking you to stand up out of guilt or redemption. It's actually a lot simpler than that. Robin's an only child, and we want Emma to have an extended family. And the last time I checked, you're my only brother.
Matt: Okay, Patrick, just think about this for a second, all right? We barely know each other.
Patrick: So what?
Matt: So what? You're asking me to stand up for you on what I assume is going to be the biggest day of your life.
Patrick: Yeah, which I think would probably be one of the coolest things ever, my brother standing up for me. Look, I want you there. Can you do that for me?
Matt: Yeah. Yeah, I can do that for you.
Robert: Wipe the goofy expression off your face.
Anna: What goofy expression? I don't have a goofy expression.
Robert: You look like you just kicked dirt into my grave.
Anna: Really? I didn't think I looked that cheerful.
Robin: Dad, you have been very sick, all right? So we have the right to get all sappy and teary-eyed over you.
Robert: Well, yeah, but I don't want --
Anna: He doesn't want us to treat him like he's an invalid.
Robert: Yeah, I don't want to be treated either like I'm about to fall over.
Anna: Well, then why don't put together a list of looks and comments that are acceptable to you, and we'll try to stick to that.
Robert: Rule 101 for surviving cancer is thou shalt enjoy life.
Anna: Then don't stop us from enjoying ourselves. You know, seeing you with your granddaughter for the first time was a lovely moment. So sue us.
Robert: Robin, sweetie, do you want me here or not?
Robin: Dad, of course I want you here. But it isn't out of character for you to show up and act like you're perfectly fine when you're not. I mean, I am getting married, but I don't want you to risk your life over it.
Robert: Look, at the risk of repeating myself, which I'm about to, I'm in great shape. They signed off on this trip. I promise. Call the doctors. Ask them. They'll tell you.
Robin: No. I'd rather take your word for it.
Anna: Oh, no, please.
Robin: Mom, be nice, or at least pretend in front of Emma.
Anna: I can't believe how much she's grown since I went away for a few weeks.
Robert: What? You mean she was smaller than this?
Anna: Yeah. She's so gorgeous.
Robert: Well. Huh. You know, I see a lot of Robin.
Robert: You, too.
Robin: It's funny. I see her dad in her cute, little nose. I guess we all see what we want to see.
Anna: Honestly, she's exactly like you when you were a little baby. She's got the same chin and eyebrows and the shock of dark hair.
Robert: Must have been precious.
Anna: I'm sorry you didn't know her then.
Robert: You did what you had to do. I tell you, I'm so proud I could bust.
Anna: It gives you chills, doesn't it? Oh, dear, God, listen to us. Oh.
Robert: Oh, we sound like grandparents.
Anna: Oh, hush your mouth.
Sasha: I wasn't sure you'd come.
Jason: Where's Sam?
Sasha: If I hadn't caught Sam following me -- spying on me, I'd have no bargaining chip at all. When we were driving Sam out of town, she escaped. Even that should have been a disaster, but I managed to -- what's that quaint little saying that you people have? To turn lemons into lemonade, because you see, Sam ran, Sam fell, and then she got trapped. And that led to you and I having this nice, little talk. I couldn't have planned it any better.
Jason: Just tell me where she is.
Sasha: I could have killed her, you know, but I'd rather use her. It's nice how we'll each get out of this in one piece.
Jason: Oh, so you want to trade Sam's location for your ticket out of here.
Michael's voice: Dad, dad, you made it.
Sonny's voice: Where else would I be, huh?
Michael: Wait up, wait up.
Sonny: Come on, come on.
Carly: You are just in time, because two little boys need to hang their stockings or Santa is just going to fly right over the house.
Michael: We cannot hang our stockings without you.
Sonny: Okay, let's celebrate the family Christmas that your mama promised us, okay? Come on, give me those things.
Carly: Okay. Guys, go, go, go.
Sonny: Okay, let's see what we got. Do we have letters for Santa?
Michael: Right here.
Morgan: Right there.
Michael: Okay, I laid out the cookies and some chips, and the carrots are from Morgan for the reindeer.
Sonny: Oh, you always got to take care of the reindeer.
Michael: You have to.
Sonny: Right. All right, let's go. Let's get these up.
Carly: We have it all.
Sonny: What do you want, Morgan?
Morgan: A game.
Sonny: How did I know that? Okay, you get that.
Carly: Okay, wait, one, two, three.
[Cell phone rings]
Carly: I need to see you.
Carly: I don't want to get into it over the phone. I'm at my house.
Sonny: Okay, I'm on my way.
Claudia: Where are you going?
Sonny: Don't wait up for me, thank you.
Robert: So let's talk about the wedding. I guess you invited, what? 10,000 of your closest friends?
Anna: Since when have you been interested in anything as mundane as a wedding?
Robin: Mundane? My wedding will not be mundane.
Anna: No, no, no, I didn't mean that as opposed to, you know, saving the world from anarchy or whatever.
Robert: My only daughter is getting married, and I'm still alive to see it.
Anna: Oh, that is something.
Robin: Well, maybe, that's why I went into labor in the first, fake wedding, so that he could be here for the real one.
Robert: I like the idea that you're doing it the day after Christmas. Now, that way, the husband is less likely to forget the anniversary.
Anna: Men are so practical.
Robert: Did I say something wrong?
Anna: Nothing more than usual.
Robin: No, Dad, actually we picked the 26th because we just couldn't wait any longer. And it gave me enough time to get a new dress because the other one, I was, you know --
Anna: Oh, but it was beautiful.
Robert: Hey, look, what can I do to help? You know, do you need a limo, or you need more booze, a bouncer, a pink carpet, red carpet?
Robin: No, no, no, we're fine. Actually, Maxie is arranging the entire thing, so all you have to do is show up.
Robert: How is Patrick? Has he been a good boy?
Robin: He is. He is. I mean, he is so good with Emma. She likes him more than me. And he takes great care of me, even though I don't make it very easy for him.
Robert: No second thoughts?
Robin: About marrying him? No. I got rid of my doubts a long time ago.
Anna: I've rarely seen two people support and love each other more.
Robin: There's my man now. Hi. Look, the gang's all here.
Patrick: I didn't know if you were well enough to come.
Anna: Well --
Robert: How could I stay away when you and I have got that father-in-law to son-in-law chat to have?
Sasha: Look, I'm an attorney. And I get paid well for what I do. Sometimes, that means looking the other way. But I draw the line at taking a toddler hostage.
Jason: You tried to kill us when we were rescuing Jake.
Sasha: I thought my employers would kill me if Sam succeeded.
Jason: You're still breathing, aren't you?
Sasha: Only because Andrei is dead, and they have no one else to manage the ground. But it's only a matter of time. So, you're going to finance my escape, and in exchange, I'll tell you where to find Sam.
Jason: How do I know she's not already dead?
Sasha: You donít. But she was alive when I last saw her not even an hour ago. Continue to waste time, and she will likely not survive. You don't trust me. I don't trust you either. But desperation makes for strange bedfellows. So as a matter of good faith, I'm going to let you in on something that you might like to know. You've hurt the syndicate. They're beginning to question the wisdom of setting up shop in Port Charles. Send the right message, and they will most likely cut their losses and move on. I plan to be far away when that happens. So, do we have a deal?
Alexis's voice: Sam, you have to wake up.
Alexis's voice: I want you to get up and start walking. You have to keep moving.
Sam: I'm so tired.
Alexis: You cannot go to sleep. If you go to sleep, you will freeze to death.
Sam: You're not even here. You're in my mind.
Alexis: I'm telling you what you already know. You can save yourself, but you have to get up. And you have to keep moving.
Jerry: You know, there were some nasty rumors going around that you and Sonny might get married. I mean, that's a match made in hell. But you know what? I understand the concept. You know, the great dynasties of Europe intermarried to consolidate power. But of course, inbreeding and an overblown sense of ego destroyed most royal houses. On the other hand, if your marriage to Sonny never happened, you'll have to find a very good excuse to --
Claudia: Get to the point, you psycho.
Jerry: This is really, really quite amusing. I mean, the truth about little Michael Corinthos is right under his father's nose. Sonny might stumble upon it and find out that you're behind that whole, nasty incident. But I can understand that by now you're anxious to start the game. So, I made the first clue a really easy one. The first DVD is hidden in the window to your soul.
Jerry: I mean, that's presuming that you have a soul. So, we'll find out soon enough. See you on the next DVD -- or not. All right, darling?
Robert: They had no sense of humor in that clinic. I mean, if there was any booze there, I could never find it.
Patrick: Okay, I'm off. Mushu pork, lettuce-wrapped chicken. How many orders of pot-stickers you want?
Anna: Get three.
Patrick: Three, okay.
Robin: Actually, Mom, would you mind going with Patrick, make sure he remembers everything?
Anna: Sure. Come on. You behave yourself, you three.
Robert: You know, you're still my little girl.
Robin: Don't say that. I'm trying so hard to act like a grown-up.
Robert: Well, you've always older than your years. I mean, your mom and I knew that you were an old soul. I took a lot of comfort out of that. I felt that it would probably serve you well as you got older, that and the fact that you're a raving control freak.
Robin: I am not.
Robert: I can remember -- we would sit around the dinner table, or we would start to sit down at the dinner table, and you would take it upon yourself to tell everybody where they could sit.
Robin: Well, it was a tough job, but somebody had to do it.
Robert: You were always beautiful, and you've always known your own mind as long as I can remember.
Robin: You know, I really -- I remember the first day I met you. And I was thinking, wow, that man's really tall. And he's handsome, and he's nice to me. And then I found out you were my dad, and I felt like I was the luckiest kid in the world.
Robert: The pleasure was all mine. I mean, you've been that gift that just kept on giving.
Robin: I'm really glad that you're here.
Robert: That's what I finally wanted to hear.
Robin: Okay, fine, but, now you have to tell me how you're really feeling.
Robert: Well, I'm about 90 percent. The other 10 percent -- I'm going write that off to being on the wrong side of 40.
Robin: Well, you look good. Your hair is growing back.
Robert: Oh, that's my summer cut. It's hip -- whatever hip is.
Robin: You get your appetite back?
Robert: Yeah. I eat like a horse.
Robin: Good, good, and you're walking around all right?
Robert: Yeah, I can -- why?
Robin: I was just hoping since you're here, that you would walk me down the aisle when Patrick and I get married.
Alexis: Sam, you have to wake up. The more you sleep, the more you come closer to dying.
Sam: Why do you care?
Alexis: Because I'm your mother.
Sam: No. Now I know I'm -- you don't like being my mother. You don't even like me.
Alexis: Baby, that's not true. Maybe that's why you're seeing me now.
Sam: I want my mother to save me.
Alexis: I can't save you, Sam. But you know how to save yourself. And you can do it. It's the only chance you have to make things right. So get up and start moving.
Jason: Yeah, Bernie. Go ahead, send it now.
Sasha: Thank you.
Jason: I gave you want you want. Tell me where Sam is.
Sasha: I am so relieved to get out of this place. My one consolation is knowing that you will beat those sons of bitches that I -- uhh!
Jason: Be quiet, be quiet. Okay, okay, okay. Tell me where Sam is. I gave you what you wanted. Tell me where she is.
[Sasha gasps and coughs]
Carly: You came.
Sonny: You said it was important. What's going on?
Carly: Come in.
Sonny: The tree looks nice.
Morgan: Merry Christmas, Dad.
