Patrick: It's a big day for our little family, Emma. Today I get to marry your mother.
[Knock on door]
Patrick: Ooh, who's that?
Maxie: What are you doing here?
Patrick: I live here.
Maxie: Not today, you don’t. Your suit is pressed and waiting for you at your apartment.
Patrick: I have plenty of time.
Maxie: Don't try to go to the hospital, because the staff has orders to turn you away at the door.
Patrick: Okay, relax, Maxie. It'll be okay.
Maxie: You relax. This time around, try being at the church on time. Get out of here.
Patrick: Okay. Bye, Emma.
Maxie: Emma, hi. You're okay. You're okay.
Robin: Where did Patrick go?
Maxie: Well, I sent him away. He's not supposed to see you today, and after what happened last time, I'm not taking any chances. Are we, Emma? No, we're not. No.
Spinelli: Stone Cold?
Jason: Are you okay?
Spinelli: Yeah, I was just -- I was in the throes of a most unsettling dream about your nocturnal mission, the difficulty of which is written on your face.
Jason: It's over.
Spinelli: The evildoers have been dispatched?
Jason: The Russians are pulling out of town.
Spinelli: So the threat has been removed, order has been restored, and now you can reconcile with Mr. Sir.
Sonny: I want the shipment landed on Pier 17. There won't be any trouble from Jason.
Claudia: You know I love a man who takes chances. You're landing a Zacchara shipment in one of Jason's territories? That's asking for trouble.
Robin: Belgian waffles?
Maxie: On top of the waffles. Aren't you allergic? I remember the Halloween parade in the fourth grade. It was like a real-life horror movie.
Robin: I think that was Carolyn Ramsey.
Maxie: I just don't want your face to swell while you're walking down the aisle.
Robin: I do not have allergies, and, besides, everything is going to be just fine.
Maxie: That's what we said last time, and then the groom went AWOL and my little cousin Emma decided to turn it into her own show. People think I'm selfish.
Robin: Well, don't worry. The baby nurse will be here to watch Emma during the ceremony.
Maxie: Baby nurse, Judy Chen from G.H., I spoke with her this morning. She should be on her way.
[Knock on door]
Maxie: Oh, see? Somebody's on time.
Robin: Uncle Mac.
Maxie: We're running a very tight schedule, so you can give her all the fatherly advice she needs on the way to the church.
Mac: And that's why I'm here. Since Robert's giving you away, I'm going to be your personal chauffeur.
Maxie: Perfect, we can put the light on top of the car and run the siren.
Mac: That's for emergencies.
Maxie: This is an emergency. The way weddings have been going in this town, we're not taking any chances. Okay, your dress and your shoes are waiting for you at the church. There's a light blue bag for you to put your clothes in after you change. Hey, cross-town traffic is really bad, so stay away from Marlton Square and leave as soon as the baby nurse gets here.
Mac: Scout's honor.
Maxie: This is going to be the happiest day of your life if it kills me!
Robin: Stone doesn't have that much time left, and of course he wonders how it's going to be for me. He asked me to get tested again, and that was fine with me because it was almost time for the six-month test anyway and I wanted to be able to tell him that I was okay. So I asked Alan to give me the test and he brought over the results last night. I'm HIV positive.
Robin: It's hard to believe, isn't it, that I'm a mom and that I'm getting married? It's hard for me to believe.
Mac: I was just remembering the day you told me you were HIV positive. No matter how hard I tried to hope, I was always afraid this day would never come, which makes it all the more precious.
Mac: Hello, stinky.
Lucky: The doctors -- they did x-rays and an MRI on your bad hip. You didn't break anything when you fell.
Sam: Well, I guess that is good news.
Lucky: The bigger concern was that you were suffering from severe hypothermia when you were brought in. Fortunately, Jason knew enough to keep your core temperature from dropping any further while the ambulance was on its way.
Sam: Listen, Lucky, the reason why I called you Jason when you walked in --
Lucky: He saved you.
Sam: No, uh-uh, it's not that. It's just because that his face was the last face that I saw before I passed out.
Lucky: Let's just forget it. Let's just talk about why you needed saving, the fact that you almost died again.
Sam: Come on, you know that Sasha was the one calling all the shots when Jake was kidnapped.
Lucky: And you decided to go after her single-handedly?
Sam: She tried to kill me, Lucky, more than once. I wasn't going to wait for her to do it again.
Lucky: You didn't trust me enough to tell me this?
Sam: I knew what you were going to say.
Lucky: And why waste your breath with somebody who doesn't give you the answers you always want to hear.
Sam: No, I'm not going to apologize for doing something that I thought was --
Lucky: You never do. I'm glad you're feeling better.
Spinelli: While monitoring police reports last night, I couldn't help but notice reports of multiple explosions at syndicate-controlled warehouses, carefully placed charges that touched not a blade of neighboring grass but caused utter destruction. Stone Cold descended under the cloak of darkness like the Goth god of Zune on the evildoers.
Jason: The Russians lost the only local players they had who knew the territory, so the smart business move for them is to get the hell out of town.
Spinelli: So the laws of economics would dictate. You know, it is fitting that the master rid the town of such a scourge, and as this new day is dawning, with the hour of the long-overdue Scorpio/Drake wedding approaching --
Jason: Yeah, and I'm not going to be going this time.
Spinelli: Well, I will convey your best wishes and do my best to be a worthy emissary.
Jason: Thank you. Shouldn't you be getting ready?
Spinelli: Yeah, Maximista fast approaches. I should go don my dapper attire. I couldn't help but notice Stone Cold avoided the question I posed earlier about a reconciliation with Mr. Sir.
Jason: Well, you know, I want peace with Sonny, Spinelli, but he may be in too deep with the Zaccharas, so I don't even know if that's possible anymore.
Sonny: Jason is focused on the Russians. He's making a move right now to stop them. I'm actually doing him a favor by using his piers. By the end I'll have a foothold.
Claudia: Yeah, but you're assuming that Jason's not going to fight back.
Sonny: Well, he's not going to do anything right now.
Claudia: So you're just going to hope and wait?
Sonny: No, no, no, I'm going to go to the Queen of Angels church right now.
Claudia: To pray?
Sonny: No. Robin Scorpio is getting married today.
Claudia: You're not going to the ceremony, are you?
Sonny: She's a close friend of mine.
Claudia: Which is exactly why I would assume that you wouldn't want to rain on her happy day, I mean, given your history with weddings and churches.
Sonny: Why do you care?
Claudia: I'm just making an observation.
Sonny: Or are you just keeping track of my movements?
Claudia: You know what? You're being paranoid now.
Sonny: I'm imagining things?
Sonny: Just like I imagined when I came in here -- you, with the laptop? Was I imagining that, too?
Claudia: I just want you to respect my privacy, that's all.
Sonny: Well, I respect that, but don't insult my intelligence, because I didn't get where I am today being stupid and naive.
Claudia: I don't think that.
Sonny: But do you think I'm not going to find out what's really going on, what you're trying to hide? Huh? You know what? As far as the marriage goes, if we want to build on this thing, we want to, you know -- we got to trust each other. So why don't you go ahead and tell me.
Claudia: Okay, first I need you to promise that you won't get angry.
Sonny: Okay, well, I would never lay a hand on a woman. I promise that. What is it you're trying to hide?
Claudia: I am polyamorous. It means someone who can be with more than one partner. Not at one time, but --
Sonny: Claudia, I think I know what that means.
Claudia: Well, I'm attracted to you. I haven't made a secret out of that, but you think having sex would be too complicated for us, too big of a deal, so I'm kind of being forced to sneak around and hide.
Sonny: But the thing is you get around --
Claudia: Wait a minute. You know what? Don't be a prude.
Sonny: I mean, with my brother, it's kind of like --
Claudia: Aw, Ric. Poor Ric.
Sonny: It just doesn't -- what do you mean?
Claudia: He wants to play with the big boys. He wants to swim with sharks.
Sonny: Well, look, what is it you're trying to tell me here?
Claudia: I just think he's funny because he -- that girl Elizabeth Webber really did a number on him. He still believes in true love and undying love and love at first sight, and it doesn't exist. It doesn't happen.
Sonny: You're wrong. My friend Robin used to be in love with this kid named Stone. Got a bad break.
Claudia: What happened to him?
Sonny: He died of AIDS.
Claudia: The guy that infected her?
Sonny: True love, undying love, the kind that, you know, nothing could stop them. I don't know what I mean. What am I even telling you this for? I got a bride to go see.
Mac: Okay, have no fear. The bride is here.
Robin: The siren, not necessary.
Anna: No, I think it was very necessary.
Mac: That was Maxie's idea.
Robin: I feel like Obama.
Anna: Well, we don't want anything to go wrong this time, and Maxie's put the fear of God in us.
Robin: I know. I mean, I appreciate everything she's doing, but she's driving me a little crazy.
Anna: That's why I asked for some private time with you to do your makeup.
Mac: Okay, well, listen, my job is done here. Just let Maxie handle the details. No speeches, but I love you.
Robin: I love you, too.
Robin: See you soon.
Mac: All right.
Anna: See you in a bit. Listen, if you see your brother, he needs a little propping up. Yeah, I know. I'm so glad we kind of had a little practice the last time. It's good. We shouldn't make any mistakes. I'm really glad my strong-willed granddaughter made her entry when she did. She's so pushy.
Robin: She is. She's a lot like us.
Anna: Yeah. I'm so proud. I love you very much.
Robin: I love you, too.
Anna: Let's get started.
Mac: Okay, okay, you can relax, all right? I got Robin here without incident. Anna's getting her ready now, and don't listen to Maxie.
Robert: About what?
Mac: About something going wrong.
Robert: Why would Maxie think that something's going to go wrong?
Mac: Because of what happened last time. Okay, Maxie's all stressed out and I thought that's what -- wait a minute. I recognize that look. I saw it in the mirror the morning I was going to walk Robin down the aisle. It isn't stress. It's terror.
Robert: Bloody right.
Mac: Well, I'm really glad the first wedding didn't come off.
Robert: So you're happy that you can see me here and melt down in person?
Mac: I'm happy you're going to walk Robin down the aisle.
Robert: Don't think I'm not grateful to be here. You know, I haven't forgotten the fact that a lot of what we're doing here now is largely due to you. I mean, you're the one that saw her through all the tough stuff -- the HIV, the loss of her first love. I never thanked you for that.
Mac: You don't have to thank me, all right? You just -- look, it wasn't your choice. I'm just grateful you entrusted Robin to me.
Robert: You did good, little brother. You did real good.
Maxie: I'm only here to get Spinelli for the wedding.
Jason: He'll be right down. Is everything going okay?
Maxie: So far, so good. I don't know why I bother. I could knock until I have splinters, but the mob population in this town is like a huge ax hanging over the altar. The odds are already stacked against Patrick and Robin.
Spinelli: What would prompt Maximista to make such a dire prediction?
Maxie: If I've learned anything from history, it's that huge weddings in this town always end in disaster.
Spinelli: Well, rest assured the potential for violence has been greatly reduced.
Maxie: Then it will be something else -- a power outage?
Spinelli: I will personally monitor the grid.
Maxie: A natural disaster.
Spinelli: The national weather service has predicted clear skies with just a light --
Maxie: I can feel it in my bones, Spinelli. Something terrible is going to happen to Patrick and Robin before they get married.
Spinelli: Oh, that -- that –
Sonny: You're early. Want to make it up to the bride since last time you were so late?
Patrick: I can't wait to marry Robin.
Sonny: I wish I could see it.
Patrick: What do you mean?
Sonny: Well, circumstances have changed. I don't want to risk anything, you know, dangerous. So I'm not going to be making a public appearance, so that's why I just came by, to wish Robin well. I'm glad I ran into you. Can I -- do you have time?
Sonny: I know you know how special Robin is and what she's been through in her life and how badly she's been hurt. You need to know that she's taking a leap of faith making this commitment and, you know, reaching for this happiness.
Patrick: I know how much this means to Robin, and I know how much it means to you. And I feel like the luckiest guy in the world that I'm the one she's making the leap with. And I promise I'm going to do everything in my power to give her everything that she deserves.
Jerry's voice: 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. I mean, that's presuming that you have a soul.
Claudia: The window to my soul? The eyes are the window to the soul. My eyes? Rot in hell.
Jason: Claudia? What are you looking for?
Robert: Mind if I join you?
Patrick: No. Guess it's time for the father/son-in-law talk, huh?
Robert: Well, I don't know if there's a protocol for a little get-together like this. If there is, I don't know about it.
Patrick: Well, if you want to ask me anything, fire away.
Robert: Well, I was thinking rather than just you and I talking, let's imagine that you're having a chat to someone else, some other guy. But that other guy -- he's about to marry Emma. What do you think you might want to say to him, and what do you think he might want to hear in return?
Patrick: Well, I would -- I'd want to tell him that -- I'd want him to know that my little girl is the most precious creature who ever drew breath and that he's the luckiest guy in the world.
Robert: So far, so good.
Patrick: I would want to hear him say that he knew how blessed he was and that he knows that life isn't perfect but that he's committed to making it work. That he'll never intentionally hurt my little girl or bail on her or cheat on her. That he will promise to value her, honor her, but most importantly, promise to love her. And that he knows that relationships take work and that he will never ever take her for granted, and because of that, their love will grow more every year. That's the kind of life that I want with your daughter. With your blessing, of course.
Robert: That wasn't so difficult, was it?
[Knock on door]
Robin: Come in. Hi.
Anna: Hi. You look gorgeous.
Robin: Stop it. You can't make me cry.
Anna: I'm not going to.
Robin: I cannot have my mascara running down my cheeks when I walk down the aisle. Maxie will kill me.
Anna: She probably has wipes in your purse.
Anna: She's so prepared. She won't have to be on red alert for much longer. Oh, you look so pretty.
Robin: Thank you.
Anna: Did you ever think this day would come?
Robin: Well, it's been a unique journey, to say the least.
Anna: Yeah. I can't believe I'm starting already.
Robin: I mean, after everything that's happened, everything that I've lost, everything that I've learned, it just makes today so special.
Anna: It's almost here. So -- I left your gift in the car. Okay, I'll be right back.
Robin: Okay. I'll be here.
Anna: Okay, I love you.
Robin: It's a mantilla. My mother wore it the first time she married my father. They were in this little Italian village and a peasant woman gave it to her. So, when I imagine my wedding, I see myself wearing it. Of course, it's kind of hard to find a dress to go with it, but somehow I've managed to create one in my head. It's a picture I've carried with me ever since I was a little girl.
Stone: Wow. You are going to make an amazing bride.
[Knock on door]
Robin: Come in.
Sam: When I started to freeze, I was falling asleep. And I just -- I don't know, I had the craziest dreams. And in the dream, one of them was you, and you kept on telling me to stay alive, stay alive. And I know it was just a dream, but it really helped, so, thanks.
Alexis: I'm glad you're all right.
Alexis: I don't mean to pry, but what the hell is going on between the two of you?
Lucky: Sam and I, we faked our breakup so she could investigate the drug-smuggling operation.
Alexis: Oh. And Jerry? Okay, well, that explains a lot. That explains a lot about your faith in my daughter.
Sam: Thanks for the ride home.
Alexis: Yeah, call me if you need anything. Don't be stubborn. Oh.
Sam: Okay, Alexis is clearly under the impression that we're still together. Are we?
Matt: Oh, my, I was trying to get out of there, and they bring this guy in from E.R. with this giant staghorn renal Stone. You should have seen it. This thing was epic. And the person who designed these traffic circles -- they need to be shot, okay, because they don't work here. They work in England and maybe in South America --
Patrick: Matt, hey, you're good.
Matt: I'm not good. I am the opposite of good. Good is way over there, and I'm over here late for you. And you asked me to stand up for you --
Patrick: Matt, you're fine. Hey, listen --
Patrick: Nobody's even here yet. You're fine. So, was there any perforation?
Patrick: The giant staghorn renal Stone -- was there any perforation?
Matt: Oh, that's cute. That's cute. I like that. You know, you're trying just -- showing me you're being cool. So much cooler than your little brother, like you're not nervous or something.
Patrick: What's there to be nervous about? I'm in love with Robin.
Matt: You're about to get married. You're going to walk down the aisle. You're going to --
Patrick: We already had our practice run.
Matt: Yeah, but you know what I mean.
Patrick: Well, yeah, am I a little freaked out about leaving my bachelorhood? Kind of. But that's before I realized that I wasn't giving anything up. I'm madly in love with Robin. You know, I hear her voice on my voicemail and she sends me little texts, and my heart does a little dance. We have this beautiful little daughter, and every time I look at Emma, my heart fills, you know? That's my life now. This is a public acknowledgement, but I want to give Robin the day that she's always dreamed about. For me -- yeah, see, I already know this is forever.
Luke: You look a little seasick, sailor.
Robert: Wait till it's your daughter's wedding day.
Luke: Bite your tongue.
Robert: I mean, imagine the dead weight of us as parents.
Luke: Robert, my friend, you've done a hell of a lot that your daughter can be proud of. You've helped avert war, international incidents that could have caused global chaos. You've recovered stolen national treasures.
Robert: Yeah, but none of them has given me as much satisfaction as seeing my little girl grow up and start her own family. And now I've been given the opportunity to walk her down the aisle. You'll see.
Luke: Not too soon, I hope.
Anna: That Luke had better not be planning your getaway, mister.
Robert: He looked into the eyes of his future and fled.
Robert: Patrick dropped by. We had a little chat.
Anna: Did you make him flee, too?
Robert: No. No, he acquitted himself quite well.
Robert: He said all the kind of things that a parent would like to hear. He said the right things about our daughter.
Anna: You know, I think he's surprised everybody, including himself. When I see him with little Emma, it makes me regret depriving you of Robin for the first six years.
Robert: Water under the bridge.
Anna: Yeah, but it's my bridge.
Robert: Robin is better than either of us deserve. The fact that she loves us, that's a bonus.
Maxie: Well, why are you two just sitting here when there's about to be a catastrophe?
Robert: What's happened?
Maxie: Nothing yet, but it will. And we have to stop it before it does happen.
Robin: I was just thinking about Stone, actually. How, when he was dying, he said that, you know, he wanted me to go on and have a happy, full life and find love again. At the time, I didn't think that was possible. And here I am. It's real. I fell in love again. I mean, I have everything that Stone ever wanted for me.
Sonny: Nobody deserves it more. I mean, you've been through so much in your life and you overcame it, right? You not only survived, you gave back. Can I say something? You have turned into the most amazing woman. And you're so lucky that you're able to find happiness again. I want to wish you and Patrick the best, and I know you're going to have a great life together.
Robin: Thank you. I was just telling my mom about all the people that helped me get here, and you're certainly one of them. You were so good to Stone, so good to me. Honestly, after Stone died, if you weren't there -- if I didn't have your support, I wouldn't be here.
Sonny: You give me way too much credit, you know. I think Jason was there more than me.
Robin: I'm blessed to have you both.
Claudia: What is this, a preemptive strike? You came to take Sonny out?
Jason: No, I'm here to talk to Sonny. Why are you acting so weird?
Claudia: What are you talking about? You're the one who stole the business, and now you're going to break into the house?
Jason: What are you talking about? I didn't steal anything from him. You're the one searching his house.
Claudia: What? I'm sorry. Were you spying on me, too?
Jason: No, it's a habit. I check a room before I walk inside, and you're the one searching the place, so, what exactly is it you're looking for?
Patrick: Thank you for coming, Mr. Quartermaine.
Edward: Well, it's nice to have you show up on time.
Epiphany: You are about as subtle as a cinder block.
Edward: I have observed your dealing with the staff at the hospital, Nurse Johnson, and "tact" is hardly a word that comes to mind.
Epiphany: Well, today is a happy day for me. The Scorpio/Drake courtship is officially over. There is no more pulling back and forth and no more announcements over the loudspeaker.
Matt: Thank God for that.
Kelly: You hope.
Lainey: I enjoyed having a front-row seat for the drama.
Patrick: No more drama. I'm looking forward to being a married man.
Epiphany: Well, now, Drake Jr., true love seems to have strengthened your character. Let's see if it can shrink your ego.
Spinelli: I've been monitoring the national weather service. There's no change. There's no chance of a storm.
Maxie: And Carly?
Spinelli: I hacked into the Valkyrie’s private communications. She'll be in meetings related to hotel business all day long.
Maxie: Okay, with everything that's gone on in this church, you'd think they would've sprung for a metal detector. You should pat everyone down.
Spinelli: Perhaps Maximista should allow for the possibility that her instincts are wrong -- that indeed no tragedy shall befall the happy nuptials.
Maxie: No way, Spinelli. Until the "I dos" are said and the rings are on Patrick and Robin's fingers, we're not letting our guards down.
Robert: Hi, yourself. Who are you?
Robin: My name's Robin.
[Knock on door]
Robin: Come in.
Robert: Oh, my God.
Robin: Are you okay?
Robert: You are absolutely beautiful. I am the luckiest dad in the whole world.
Lucky: I wish I could've been with you, too, on Christmas, buddy. But the one good part is that I have presents for you and your brother to open. I love you, too. All right, you promise -- you and your brother are going to be good for your mom? Okay. Hey. Elizabeth, I'm really glad you got home safe. All right, bye.
Lucky: I'm sorry about that.
Sam: You don't have to apologize for talking to your family.
Lucky: You know it doesn't change the way I feel about you. You know, things were good before all this happened, and I want to get back to that -- a place that we can accept and be honest with each other.
Sam: Really? Well, I do want that, too.
Claudia: I don't know how I feel about you, and I don't think Sonny does either. But I have stuff to do.
Sonny: Hey. I went to see Robin, wish her well on her wedding day.
Jason: You decided to stay away this time, too, huh?
Sonny: What are you doing here?
Jason: I ran the Russians out of town. And you got your revenge against Karpov, and you're safe. And you don't need the Zaccharas. So, please, Sonny, I'm asking you to end that alliance and walk away.
[Pachelbel's "Canon" plays]
Father Coates: Patrick, welcome back. How are you? Nice to see you.
Matt: Yeah, nice to see you.
