Robin: I want this wedding -- my -- my actual wedding, to be perfect. And it will be if you'll agree to walk me down the aisle.
Robert: Well -- I am deeply honored. And I -- I love you to death. But I can't do it, no.
Jason: Where's Sam?
Jason: Where -- where is she? Tell me how to find her.
Sasha: White --
Jason: Come on, tell me.
Elizabeth: Do you need help with that?
Elizabeth: Do you see what the problem is? You took the laces out of the hole, silly goose. Let's put these laces back and we'll fix the bunny here, okay? Now whip it around.
Sam: That is not your baby. You have no right to take that child. Give him back.
Maureen: I'm sorry. I -- I didn't know -- I didn't just --
Sam: Just give him back. Give him back. Come on.
Sam: He's okay.
Sonny: So when did you get so tall? You been doing all right? Working hard in school? Come over here.
Robert: I'm ridiculously honored and proud of the life you've made for yourself. But come on, let's face it. I made hardly any contribution to it.
Robin: I disagree.
Robert: I have no right to walk you down the aisle.
Robin: Of course you do. You have every right. You're my father.
Robert: What about my brother?
Robin: Well, he walked me down the aisle the first time.
Robert: Yeah, but that didn't count.
Robin: Come on. Uncle Mac will understand.
Robert: He'll say that, but it's not fair that I come in at the last minute and steal his glory.
Robin: Listen, I will always be grateful to Uncle Mac for everything that he did for me. But you're my dad.
Robert: And a pretty lousy one, too, as you've reminded me on a couple of occasions.
Robin: Well, that was before you got sick. And I have to say, now that I'm a parent, I'm just beginning to see how hard it is and I realize that, well, you made decisions in order to protect me.
Robert: Well, a lot of that is true. But I made few sacrifices to really accommodate my family. Let's face it. It's easy to be a hero when you're halfway around the world. My brother was here. He was working on the foundation that helped you become -- the incredible person that you are now.
Robin: Dad, I want you to do this, please.
Robert: I'll tell you what. How about you let me run it by him and we'll -- we'll take it from there?
Robin: What? You're leaving?
Robert: I'm going out for some fresh air.
Robin: It's freezing outside.
Robert: The exercise won't kill me.
Robin: Okay, well, jut out of curiosity, what should I tell Mom when she gets back?
Robert: Well, you can tell her that her ex has a lot on his mind.
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.
Ric: Now, that is the best sight I have seen all day.
Claudia: How did you get past Milo?
Ric: I gave him a banana. Better question -- what are you looking for? Maybe I can help you find it.
Carly: So Morgan and I decided that we wanted to spend Christmas here at home. Didn't we?
Sonny: You sure you're comfortable with that?
Carly: Yeah, for the most part. This is where we wanted to be.
Carly: We have a lot of memories in this house, don't we, buddy?
Morgan: Does Michael know it's Christmas?
Sonny: I think he does. Want to know why? Because he loves you. And he loves Christmas. So, in a way, it's going to be like he's with you now. I mean, unfortunately, he's not going to walk through the door because his body is still where it is, but Michael's spirit will always be with you, you know? Like taking care of you, like a -- like a guardian angel.
Carly: A Christmas angel.
Sonny: And you know, because he always takes care of you. You know that, right? He always wanted the best Christmas for you. He wanted the biggest tree -- didn't he teach you how to shake the presents to see what's inside?
Sonny: A lot of memories here. Can't forget that, right? And -- you know why you can't forget that? Because all Michael wanted for you was to be happy -- and have a great Christmas, okay? Don't forget that, okay?
Carly: And that's what your father and I both want for you, too, okay?
Elizabeth: How did that woman get Jake? I didn't even see her.
Sam: It's okay. He's fine.
Elizabeth: I should've been paying closer attention. If you hadn't stopped her --
Sam: I just -- I would never let anyone hurt this little guy.
Elizabeth: Thank you, Sam. Thank you for rescuing Jake.
Spinelli: No, not to worry. I'm just -- you know, I'm just checking in to see if Stone Cold had reported in in the last half hour or so. Oh, no, no, no, not a big deal. Not a big deal at all. Now I'll just sit around and eat potato chips and drink refreshing orange soda until the master's inevitable and timely return. Yeah, thank you, bye. Oh, God. Yes, beneficent one, 'tis I, the Jackal. We are at Defcon one red alert. Yes, Defcon one red alert. We're --
Spinelli: Cancel Defcon one red alert. Repeat, cancel Defcon --
Jason: Who is that? Bernie?
Spinelli: Yes. Affirmative. I thought you had walked in to an ambush.
Jason: I did. Place an untraceable call to 911, okay? Tell them there's a body on Pier 52. A sniper took out Sasha right before she was going to tell me where Sam is.
Spinelli: It's done.
Jason: Okay, now see what you can find out about white rock.
Spinelli: One word or two?
Jason: I don't know.
Spinelli: Is it a business, home or landmark?
Jason: I don't know that either. I just know that it's close to here and I know that Sasha said to me white rock. I think that's where Sam is. So find something.
Luke: Where are you? Bursitis? Bursitis? You can't come up with anything better than that? Look, I don't want to hear about bursitis when I'm standing here freezing my jingle bells off. Get down here or be ready to swim back to Cuba. What a waste.
Robert: Nice work, Spencer. I can see you haven't lost your touch.
Claudia: Sonny broke this Christmas tree ornament and I'm just trying to find it and glue it back together.
Ric: Since when do you clean up after Sonny?
Claudia: It was kind of my fault.
Ric: You don't believe that.
Claudia: Yeah, I do, actually. I -- I -- Sonny didn't want a Christmas tree and I went and got one anyway. And then I went upstairs and I got down the ornaments that his kids made for Christmas and I put them on the tree because I thought it would make him feel better. It didnít.
Ric: Did he hurt you?
Claudia: No, of course not.
Ric: I know my brother's rages, Claudia. Even though he professes himself to not be violent towards women, he is dangerous all the same. Next time, do me a favor. Just call me.
Claudia: Yeah, Sonny will calm right down if I do that. He's going to be upset that he broke the ornament because Michael made it. But if I can find it and glue it back together before he gets home --
Ric: Okay, okay, yeah, I know. Yeah, I get the -- I get Sonny getting mad and breaking something that he loves, but you being all worried about it and trying to fix it, not so much. The ornament is over here, by the way.
Ric: Is there a DVD that goes with this?
Claudia: Yeah. Actually, I'm downloading some Christmas carols for you.
Ric: Okay, any chance at all that you're going to tell me what's really going on here?
Claudia: Now that we found the ornament, I can glue it back together and maybe Sonny will start to trust me. The sooner Sonny starts to trust me, the sooner I can get what I'm really after.
Ric: Mm-hmm. And what are you really after?
Claudia: You, for one thing.
Ric: Look --
Ric: Are you serious?
Claudia: Mm-hmm, come on.
Sonny: Listen, I didn't know I'd get to see you tonight, so I didn't bring your Christmas present. You okay with that?
Sonny: But whenever -- I'll -- I'll get it to you, okay? Don't worry about it.
Carly: Hey, Morgan, why don't you go upstairs and get your daddy's Christmas present?
Sonny: So what made you call -- call me over here?
Carly: Morgan is getting older. I don't want his Christmas memories to be staying at a hotel after his mother screwed up yet another marriage. I don't want him to wake up Christmas morning and miss Michael and miss you. I thought about just bringing him home and try again. You know me. Never say die.
Sonny: I appreciate that.
Carly: You were right about Michael. He loved Christmas. And he always wanted Morgan to have fun.
Carly: Morgan misses you. And he needs you and you need him. Christmas is supposed to be about miracles. So I'm hoping that this year, the Christmas miracle will be that we can -- well, we can somehow heal, you know?
Sonny: So what are we talking about here, just for Christmas or are you going to let me back in Morgan's life?
Patrick: Hey, I hope you and your dad are hungry.
Anna: Yeah, you know what is so weird? Not going to Kellyís when I'm here in Port Charles. It just seems so weird.
Robin: Well, at least Mike's out of the hospital.
Anna: Oh, yeah?
Robin: Thank you.
Anna: Oh, so where's Dad? Is he in the closet with the -- in the nursery with the baby?
Robin: Actually, he left.
Anna: Is he feeling all right?
Robin: I asked him to walk me down the aisle.
Robin: Yeah. He said no at first and then he said, "Well, we'll have to run it by Uncle Mac."
Anna: Well, there might be some truth to that, but I don't know. I just think it's all this domesticity, the new granddaughter. It's just getting to Robert.
Robin: Yeah, well, I hope he doesn't do something stupid to try and feel young again.
Anna: What, like buy a sports car? I mean, honestly, he should be excited that you asked him and that he's now beaten cancer. I mean, what's wrong with him? He's just so arrogant.
Patrick: There's nothing wrong with arrogance if you are the best.
Anna: Oh, my God. Your father would say that.
Robin: I know.
Patrick: Well, maybe Emma will cut me down to size.
Anna: One can only hope.
Anna: Listen, don't worry about your dad. He'll be back.
Robin: I know.
Anna: He might even walk you down the aisle, too, once he gets used to the idea.
Robin: Well, even if he doesn't, would you be my matron of honor?
Luke: Why aren't you in Switzerland?
Robert: You think I can't beat a simple thing like cancer? It's called remission.
Luke: Congratulations, pal. That's great news. We'll celebrate. We'll start with a good Cuban cigar as soon as Jorge gets here.
Robert: Well, I've made some sacrifices. Have you called 911?
Luke: No, they can't help her now.
Robert: Do you know what happened?
Luke: No, she was dead when I got here. I came down to meet my Cuban connection who is now 18 minutes late.
Robert: Didn't you have a quadruple bypass? I mean, didn't that tell you something?
Luke: We've both been turned back from death's door. What that tells me is the party's still on. I intend to enjoy it to the last second.
Robert: Well, I haven't given up all my vices. I can still drink your wobbly back end under the ground, starting right now.
Luke: You're on. Let's get hammered.
Robert: Wait, wait, wait. We can't just leave her here, you know.
Luke: I don't think I've seen her before. She may be a shill for the Russian mob.
Robert: That's too bad.
Ric: Look, I'm not complaining. I'm just saying, we are under Sonny's roof here.
Claudia: Hey, this is my bedroom, so I'll do whatever the hell I want. Besides, he won't be home for hours.
Ric: Okay, so one minute you're falling all over yourself trying to get back in Sonny's good graces. The next, you're doing what would appear to make this entire deal fall apart.
Claudia: Oh, well, maybe I'm just one of those crazy Zaccharas.
Ric: No, no, no, come on, wait a minute, wait a minute. Slow down, slow down. Maybe you're scared. Come on, what is it? Why don't you let me help you?
Claudia: You want to help me?
Claudia: You want to help me?
Ric: Oh, yeah.
Claudia: Help me.
Jax: Marty, I should be available on my cell phone most of the time, but if there are any packages, just forward them to the address in the email I sent you.
Marty: I'll take care of it.
Jax: Okay, you have a good holiday.
Marty: Thank you.
Kate: Hey, Jax, hi.
Kate: I just picked up your message. What's all this about going to Australia?
Jax: I'm going to spend Christmas with my mother.
Kate: Oh. That seems rather sudden.
Jax: Yes, it is. I'm -- I'm going to surprise her when she comes across the finish line of the Port Philips yacht race.
Kate: So is that actually on Christmas Day?
Jax: I hope so. It depends on the wind. Why?
Kate: I -- obviously, I should have asked you this sooner, but given our unexpected circumstances, I was wondering if you might, I don't know, want to spend Christmas together.
Carly: I'm going to say this again and I really need you to hear me, okay? And maybe I need to listen to myself. I didn't take Morgan away from you to punish you. I did it to keep my little boy safe after what happened to Michael.
Sonny: I know you believe that, but can you understand how it made me feel?
Carly: I'm starting to, okay? I am.
Sonny: Do you see the double standard in that?
Carly: No, I donít.
Sonny: Being around Jason, what he does is just as dangerous as what I do, right? But you spend all kinds of time with him.
Carly: Morgan doesnít. Jason doesn't see Morgan. Jason doesn't come here to the house. If I want to see Jason, I go see Jason.
Sonny: But you still see him all the time --
Carly: I don't see him.
Sonny: Which means you blame me more than you blame Jason.
Carly: I don't want to have this fight. I don't -- I don't want to have this fight with you right now. It's Christmas. Morgan's right upstairs.
Sonny: I understand that, but if you want to heal, we have to be completely honest with each other. Just admit it. I mean, you still blame me for what happened with Michael.
Officer: We're going downtown.
Luke: Oh, gosh.
Mac: That won't be necessary.
Luke: Oh, thank God you're here.
Mac: I'll take it from here. Lose the cuffs, all right? Call the coroner. Start working the scene.
Luke: Perfect timing, bubba, perfect.
Robert: For once.
Mac: You know, if I wasn't so happy to see you, I'd punch your lights out.
Spinelli: Okay, even a refined search within a 20-mile radius provides disparate and multiple results. There's a machine shop, a clothing store, even a winery.
Jason: Hold on, hold on. All right, Sasha told me that her men grabbed Sam and drove her out of town.
Spinelli: Okay, did they indicate in which direction?
Jason: No, no, but she said that Sam escaped. She ran away, the men went after her, and then she said that Sam had fallen and trapped herself.
Spinelli: Meaning something fell on her? She got tangled in vines and ensnared in a heartless trap for woodland creatures?
Jason: Well, you know what? Check parks. Check mines. Check quarries. Just check everything right outside of town.
Spinelli: Okay -- okay, here's -- here's something. It's a quarry that's been closed for a number of years. It was best known for producing white granite.
Jason: Get me a map.
Sam: 83 bottles of beer on the wall. 83 bottles of beer. Take one, you pass it around, 82 bottles of beer on the wall. 82 bottles -- ow!
Claudia: Well, that was definitely worth taking a little risk, wasn't it?
Ric: Oh, you definitely like to push the limits.
Claudia: What, you don't?
Ric: No, it just doesn't make sense, though. I mean, if you're trying to gain Sonny's trust, why are you doing this?
Claudia: You worry too much. Sonny's already starting to trust me.
Ric: So you think if you're going to gain Sonny's trust that he's going to somehow give you more power in the organization, huh?
Claudia: Matter of fact, yeah, I do. That is the plan.
Ric: Well, I had a similar plan once, Claudia. I thought if I was going to -- my brother would trust me more, he would fold me into the organization. Well, guess what? That never happened.
Claudia: Do you know why that is?
Ric: Yeah, I made some serious mistakes where Carly was concerned years ago. Look, once Sonny doesn't trust you, that's it. There's no going back. Can't you move out? I mean, this is a business arrangement, after all. I think your father would completely understand.
Claudia: Sonny wouldnít.
Ric: Oh, don't be so sure. It could be much more convenient for all of us, especially us.
Claudia: I'm not moving, Ric.
Ric: Okay. All right, well you better be sure that you stay in Sonny's good graces, because that little Christmas ornament thing today, that's just the tip of the iceberg. Look, if Sonny feels betrayed -- you don't want to know, Claudia. There's no telling what'll happen.
Claudia: Okay, well, look. Just because you couldn't win his trust does not mean that I canít.
Ric: Okay, so you stay.
Claudia: Yeah, I'm staying, because I really don't see how it's possible for me to leave at this point.
Carly: Jason says we're all responsible for what happened to Michael, that we glorified the business and we denied how dangerous it is. But I'm his mother, Sonny. At the end of the day, the responsibility is on me.
Sonny: We've all made mistakes, too many of them.
Carly: Morgan shouldn't have to pay for those mistakes. We need to think about what he needs, and I think -- he needs both of us. And I was hoping that this Christmas could be, you know -- well, the beginning. You can see Morgan again, but you just -- you have to swear to me that you're going to keep him safe, and you have to know that you have his precious little life in your hands.
Sonny: That's why I'm doing exactly what I'm doing.
Carly: Okay, well, you know, we can't lie to Morgan and tell him he's safe when he's not, but if you and I are honest with each other and if we talk to each other, we can make this work.
Sonny: I appreciate what you're doing, and I know -- what it cost you. Hey. What do you got, buddy?
Morgan: It's a Christmas angel, like Michael.
Sonny: Aw. Thank you.
Carly: Hey, how about we put that on the Christmas tree? Yeah? Okay, go on.
Sonny: Why don't you put it over here? Look, what do you think? Maybe right there? No? Okay. How's that? Let's go show your ma. How's that look?
Carly: It's perfect.
Sonny: Perfect. Beautiful, all right. What do you think?
Morgan: Now it's -- now Michael's watching over us, just like Daddy said.
Sonny: Merry Christmas, buddy.
Luke: Mac, I swear to you, we had nothing to with the blonde.
Robert: We? Hey, look, when I got here, she was dead. Now, I can't speak for him --
Mac: Relax. I don't suspect either one of you.
Robert: Well, you know what to do. Round up the usual suspects who were at the scene, yada yada yada.
Mac: Drop it, all right? Don't tell me how to do my job. I've been police commissioner around here a lot longer than you ever were.
Robert: No comment.
Mac: What are you doing here? Luke, I swear -- I swear, if you got him out of the hospital and got him involved into one of your schemes --
Luke: Mac, come on. Can't a guy just take a stroll on the waterfront, get some air?
Robert: Look, I just ran into him. I don't know anything about contraband.
Mac: Contraband? Speaking of contraband, we just busted a guy down at the free clinic waiting in line for bursitis cream. He can't explain the six crates of Cuban cigars in the back of his van.
Luke: The free clinic, you say? I got to split. I don't want to get in the way of a nice brotherly reunion.
Robert: Thanks for letting me go.
Mac: Robert, what are you doing here? Shouldn't you be in Switzerland?
Robert: The r-word, little brother -- remission.
Mac: Oh, that's great. Congratulations. I knew you'd beat it. Have you seen Robin?
Robert: Mm-hmm, yeah. She wants me to walk her down the aisle.
Mac: That's great. That's perfect. All right, yeah.
Robert: I can't do it.
Mac: What, are you nuts? Did that chemo fry your brain cells?
Robert: I've never been this model parent. You should do it.
Mac: I've already done it, all right? Now Robin's giving you the chance to step up.
Robert: But I don't feel right. I mean, you did all the heavy work.
Mac: Listen, I'll give you a choice, all right? You either walk Robin down the aisle and be grateful for the opportunity or sit out the wedding in jail. Your choice.
Anna: You know, I mean, it's lovely that you would like me to be your matron of honor, but you know, Maxie --
Robin: Mom, Maxie will understand.
Anna: Would she really?
Anna: It's enough that I'm mother of the bride. I mean, that's honor enough.
Robin: Okay, I'm pretty fuzzy on what happened right after Emma was born, but I do remember being extremely tired, and you made me take your hand, and you told me to take the strength from you, and so now I'd like to share this day with you.
Anna: Are you absolutely sure?
Robin: Yes. I mean, you're the one that helped me find the courage to marry Patrick. You're the best role model that a woman could have, and I would be honored for you to stand next to me on the most important day of my life. All you have to do is say yes.
Kate: Okay, if this makes any difference whatsoever, it is not a romantic overture. It's just an invitation from one Christmas orphan to another.
Jax: Aw, come on. You're hardly a Christmas orphan. What about Olivia?
Kate: Olivia, yeah. Well, she's spending Christmas in Bensonhurst.
Jax: So why don't you join her?
Kate: I've think I've had enough family I can handle for one year.
Jax: Oh, come on. I know you miss your family.
Kate: Yeah, well, you know. It's just it's been -- it's been too long, Jax, and it would end up being one big old fight, a fight that I would lose, and it's not that I blame the Falconeri. It's just -- I'm really tired of fighting.
Jax: Yeah, I know what you're talking about.
Kate: Okay, so then what will it take to get you to stay? Look, we'll go to the City.
Jax: I canít. I'm sorry, Kate.
Kate: There's no better place than Manhattan at Christmas --
Jax: I canít. I'm really concerned about Lady Jane. You know, she'll never admit that she's upset about Jerry, but I know she is.
Kate: I understand. Oh, look at us. We're just really a couple of fools, aren't we? You're going to Australia to avoid Carly, and I want you to stay so that I don't end up on Sonny's doorstep Christmas morning trying to work things out.
Jason: Sam. Oh, man, you're freezing. Here.
Sam: Jason. How'd you find me?
Jason: Spinelli found you. It's okay. You're going to be all right.
Robin: This is why it pays to be related to the police commissioner.
Robert: Hmm, I can see. I mean, instead of arresting me, he drives me home for dinner now. When I was police commissioner, I never did that.
Patrick: No, you got off easy.
Robin: Uncle Mac arrested Patrick and locked us in the interrogation room until we agreed to get married.
Patrick: That's right.
Robert: You didn't want to marry my daughter? I mean, what kind of an insufferable clod's coming into the family?
Anna: I don't know. It takes one to know one, doesn't it?
Mac: Now, listen, just to be clear -- just to be clear, Robert's going to walk you down the aisle, and I'll be sitting in the front row, cheering you two on.
Robin: Thank you. You always manage to fix everything. Okay, and guess who's going to be the matron of honor.
Anna: That would be me.
Robin: I talked to Maxie about it already.
Robert: Okay, that's good.
Mac: You don't have much to say for yourself.
Patrick: I know better.
Mac: You had a lot of courage to wade into all these Scorpios.
Anna: Oh, yeah.
Robin: Okay, I would like to propose a toast. To my man, my mom, my dad, my uncle, my little girl.
Robin: We may have not always been conventional or done things perfectly, but all of you have taught me what family really means, and you've encouraged me to start one of my own. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for supporting me and standing by me. I love you guys. To family.
Spinelli: Hello? 'Tis I, the Jackal.
Jason: Yeah, he sent this down. Do you remember that?
Spinelli: Fair Samantha, hi. I've alerted the rescue squad, and they're arriving forthwith to extract you from the pit of doom.
Jason: Go wait by the road. Tell the ambulance we're down here, okay?
Spinelli: Message received. Over and out.
Sam: I'm so sleepy.
Jason: Hey, it's hypothermia. You got to stay awake.
Sam: It's just that I still don't understand how you found me.
Jason: Like I told you, Sasha gave me a clue, and Spinelli was the one who did the research, like I said.
Sam: You two make a good team.
Jason: Hey, come on. You got to stay awake, okay? Just keep talking to me.
Sam: About what, Jason?
Jason: About anything. I mean, do you know how long you've been down here?
Sam: No, but I have had the craziest dreams.
Jason: Okay, okay, keep talking.
Sam: Jake -- I was in the park, and -- I didn't let Maureen walk away with him, and I gave him to Elizabeth. I gave him back, Jason. I just -- I wish it was true. I wish it was real. I am so sorry.
Claudia: Welcome home.
Sonny: Thanks. About before --
Claudia: Don't worry about it. You want a glass of wine?
Sonny: Oh, that'd be great. Oh, so you fixed the ornament.
Claudia: Yeah, nothing a couple drops of glue couldn't fix.
Sonny: Some Christmas, huh?
Claudia: I've had worse.
Sonny: Merry Christmas, Mrs. Corinthos.
Claudia: Merry Christmas.
Morgan: Yay, we made it.
Carly: We're so glad we caught you before you left for Australia.
Jax: So am I.
Carly: We forgot to give you your Christmas present. Merry Christmas.
Jax: Thank you. Merry Christmas to both of you.
Morgan: Is that mistletoe?
Carly: Well, how about that?
Jax: How about that, huh? Did your mom and you plan this together, huh?
Morgan: Mm-mm, mm-mm.
Carly: Would we do something like that?
Morgan: You're supposed to kiss because it's Christmas.
