Spinelli: Oh, faithful cyber companion, holder of knowledge and wisdom, never, ever again will I leave you undefended against marauding hackers. And I swear that the fiend who violated you will pay and pay dearly. Oh.

Winnifred: I don't mean to disturb.

Spinelli: The Jackal's unrest goes far beyond any intrusion on his person, so --

Winnifred: You look so intent on your task, which is understandable. I myself find clean air and open vistas conducive to work.

Ric: You're acting like a man who has options. You donít. I'm it.

Lulu: Don't trust him. He's working on your father's orders.

Ric: You know how this goes, John. You can serve time for assault, or you can reconcile with Daddy.


Patrick: Hey, I was getting the oil changed, and I saw this little doggy in the window, and I figured Emma hasn't had a present in, what, three or four days, so I thought -- what are you doing?

Robin: I'm never getting my body back. I'm going to be fat and ugly for the rest of my life.

Patrick: Hey, don't say that. You're beautiful.

Robin: No, I'm not.

Patrick: Babe, are you crying?

Robin: No.

Patrick: What's wrong?

Jax: Well, there has to be something wrong. We lost power for seven hours. We had to evacuate the hotel. New Yearís Eve was a disaster.

Engineer: Yeah, I am sorry about that, Mr. Jacks, but as you can see, we did the system check and it came up empty.

Jax: Well, we're going to have to keep on looking. I can't afford for this to happen again.

Olivia: Did you guys check for plumbing leaks?

Jerry: Now pay attention to the second clue. You'll sleep sounder when you've found it. That's it. That's the second clue, darling. I'm afraid it's not very original, but you see, I was a little pressed for time. You see, I had to break into Sonny's house and put incriminating DVDs in all sorts of places -- very difficult -- and I hope I did a thorough job. I mean, it would be a tragedy if it fell into the wrong hands. I mean, tragic for you, because of your involvement in little Michaelís shooting. I mean, it's of no consequence to me, because I'll either be dead or long gone. So, you have your second clue and my best wishes, so I'll see you. Or maybe I wonít. Best wishes, and sleep well, my darling.

Carly: I'm here to see Sonny.

Claudia: Who the hell told you you could come barging into my house?

Mike: Hey, Luke. What's up? You wanted to see me.

Luke: Hi, Mike. Hey, could I set you up with something?

Mike: Oh, well, you know, being a chronic gambler hanging out at casinos ain't in my playbook.

Luke: Well, in that case, I'll make it quick. Barbara Jean and I would like you to oversee the rebuilding of Kellyís. We figured maybe you could use the work.

Mike: Well, since the diner burned and I spent way too much in the hospital, yeah, I could use the work.

Luke: Good. Salary will be generous. Money's not a problem.

Mike: So you decided to let Sonny pick up the tab?

Luke: Hey, Sonny's the one who pissed off the Russian mob enough to make them want to burn the place down. He wants to pay for it, who am I to stop him?

Mike: Yeah, well, I've never been able to.

Luke: There's one thing, though. Barbara has this fantasy that the diner can be a mob-free zone. You think we can accommodate her?

Mike: The mob's the least of your problems.

Lulu: This is disgusting. Johnny did not beat up some guy.

Ric: Well, why don't you tell me your version of what happened?

Johnny: What Lulu said.

Ric: How'd you get that little bruise on your hand, John?

Johnny: I punched a wall.

Ric: Oh.

Johnny: I wish I'd hit the guy who was interviewing me. It would have hurt a lot less.

Ric: That's not what the police say. They have a man who's willing to testify that you beat the crap out of him.

Lulu: Well, that's a lie. Anthony had some guy beat up and paid him to accuse Johnny. For all we know, it could have been your idea. It sounds like something you would come up with.

Ric: Interesting theory, Lulu. Do you have anything resembling proof?

Johnny: You know we donít. My father covered all of his bases.

Ric: Which brings us back to square one. Look, we have a victim and a statement. We also have your arrest record, which includes several public brawls. Add in that ugly little bruise on your hand, that equals to a guilty verdict. So unless you want to go to jail, John, you better start being practical.

Officer: I need to take the suspect for processing and fingerprinting.

Ric: Be sensible, John. I'm your ticket out of here.

[Knock on door]

Maxie: I have been getting that reaction a lot today.

Sam: No, I'm sorry.

Maxie: Like I'm the third wheel. But I'm not anybody's third wheel, because I don't do third wheel.

Sam: All right, if this is a relationship thing, I'm glad to listen, but I have to warn you, given the state of my own personal life right now, I may do more harm than good.

Maxie: This isn't about romance. It's about Spinelli. He's so sweet and innocent. He's always seeing the best in people, even me. That's why he's such a good target for that ridiculous computer nerd, Winnifred.

Sam: Okay, so, what? Spinelli's seeing someone else?

Maxie: No, no, no, he's not seeing anyone. She's totally stalking him.

Sam: What?

Maxie: Yeah, apparently she likes to hang out with her computer on the pier in the exact same spot Spinelli likes to hang out with his computer. She talks exactly like him and knows all the stuff he knows. She even knows about that computer game that Spinelli created, the Saga of Stone Cold. It's like he's some computer project she was studying. And I went off on her earlier, and she kind of ran off. You know what happened next? Spinelli asked if I was jealous.

Sam: Are you?

Maxie: He's my friend, and I want to protect him. He's done a lot for me.

Sam: Okay, to me, it sounds like these two have a lot in common. And, I don't know, sometimes that can be a very powerful draw.

Spinelli: The Jackal often leaves the confines of casa de Stone Cold for open air and --

Winnifred: Oh!

Spinelli: What?

Winnifred: Casa de Stone Cold?

Spinelli: Oh, yeah, it's the domicile I share with the Stone Cold one.

Winnifred: There's a real Stone Cold? Seriously? He's not just the star of your video game?

Spinelli: And believe me -- cyber Stone Cold pales in comparison to the real thing. The true icon possesses superior prowess in all matters of danger. It's incredible.

Winnifred: That is awesome. Wow, how well do you know this guy?

Spinelli: Uh, well, he's my mentor. And, you know, beyond that, a spiritual brother.

Winnifred: Aww.

Spinelli: You know, all things that affect Stone Cold affect the Jackal and vice versa.

Winnifred: That makes so much sense. A game as captivating as the saga of Stone Cold would have to have a basis in reality. Nobody's that good. Oh, no, I mean you are that good.

Spinelli: Well, I have constant inspiration. I mean, Stone Cold's battles with nefarious foes are legendary. I just, you know, recorded them for posterity. It was a privilege.

Winnifred: Dude --

Spinelli: What?

Winnifred: I have to know the truth.

Spinelli: Oh, please -- I'm sorry, but please don't ask me to reveal secrets of my master. I can't --

Winnifred: No, I'm seeking a small reward for having reached level seven. It's not like I'm asking you to reveal Stone Cold's true identity. It's like Peter Parker can still be anonymous while M.J. Watson lauds the exploits of Spiderman, right? I'm dying -- I'm dying to know. Please, like in level five, okay? Level five, when Stone Cold confronts the demented destructor and his hostage-taking denizens of darkness. Are they fabricated, or are they actual enemies of the real Stone Cold?

Spinelli: Well, having reached level seven, the priestess should be aware that revealing closely held secrets is cause for termination with extreme prejudice.

Winnifred: Yeah.

Spinelli: However --

Winnifred: Go on.

Spinelli: Okay, it wouldn't be wrong to draw certain parallels to a certain disaster at a local hotel.

Winnifred: I knew it. Oh! The better that I get to know the Jackal, the more he dominates.

Engineer: Well, I'm afraid you misunderstand, miss. This is electrical. It has to do with wires, not pipes.

Olivia: Right, well, your attitude certainly doesn't seem to be fixing the problem, does it? When I ran the parts department at the auto dealership, we had three power failures in a row, and it turns out there was a leaky water pipe that was causing the wiring to short out.

Engineer: Well, that's highly unlikely.

Jax: Well, let's not dismiss Miss Falconeri's idea until we check it out.

Jax: Very impressive.

Olivia: Well, what if I'm wrong?

Jax: I doubt it. You see, I pride myself on being able to recognize when a woman is clever as well as beautiful. Excuse me.

Alexis: Hey, Diane gave me this this morning, and I think we should go over it before the settlement conference.

Jax: Can't we just get past the division of assets and move on?

Alexis: You can, but you know Carly. She's not going to let this go.

Carly: Do you like those curtains, Claudia? I picked them out. This couch? My choice, too. This house is more mine than it will ever be yours.

Claudia: Funny you should mention that. I just got off the phone with the Salvation Army. They're coming to pick up the drapes. I made plans to redecorate. I'm Sonny's wife, so I can do that. Deal with it.

Carly: Did you clear it with Sonny? He's pretty finicky about how his house is decorated, and I doubt he has any faith whatsoever in your taste.

Claudia: Well, your doubts are just really not my problem, and Sonny's not here, so get out.

Carly: You don't get to tell me what to do, so why don't you go back to playing on your computer or whatever you were doing that made you so jumpy.

Claudia: Why don't you get out, or I'm going to have somebody throw you out.

Carly: If you think that Max or Milo will lay a hand on me, you're more deluded than I thought.

Claudia: I'm Sonny's wife now, and you're choking on it, aren't you?

Nikolas: Hello.

Nadine: Hey.

Nikolas: Hey.

Nadine: If you're here to check up on me, I'm fine. It's totally unnecessary but very sweet.

Nikolas: I'm not, I'm glad, I disagree, and thank you. No, I actually have a board meeting, and that's far less entertaining than talking to you, so I just thought I'd come up and say hello, so hello.

Nadine: Oh, no.

Nikolas: What? This is to inform you that the IRS has frozen any and all assets owned and assigned to Nadine Crowell. Internment -- they're auditing your tax returns for the last five years.

Nadine: They can't do that.

Nikolas: It's the IRS. They can do whatever they want.

Nadine: The Equinox Corporation did this, didn't they? They want my patent, and they'll do anything to get it. What am I supposed to do? I don't even have an accountant.

Nikolas: Hey, I do, okay? I have a team of them. Don't worry. I'll get my attorneys on this right away, okay?

Nadine: They can audit every dime I've ever made. I am not giving them that patent.

Sam: Sometimes two people think alike, and they react to certain situations the same way, and it kind of gives them a common ground, but it doesn't mean it's romantic.

Maxie: Please. Even if it doesn't start out that way, it always winds up there. This is -- this horrible. Winnifred is as drab as they come, okay? But as soon as she starts opening her mouth and spewing all that techno-babble, Spinelli is a goner.

Sam: Okay, I know, it's not easy always feeling like an outsider, as if everyone else has this big secret and their lives are so perfect, and then finally you meet somebody, and then all of a sudden you get along, and you feel like you don't have to be a phony.

Maxie: Yeah, like you can act like yourself, and they'll like you no matter what.

Sam: Okay, well, then I don't know. Maybe you should be happy for Spinelli. Maybe this isn't such a bad thing.

Maxie: No, this is a disaster. There's something not right about this Winnifred situation. It's too bizarre. She's too needy.

Sam: I'm just saying, maybe you should back off.

Maxie: And let her get her hooks deeper into Spinelli? No.

Sam: Okay, look it -- the harder you push, the more sympathetic Winnifred is going to look and the bigger chance that you're going to push Spinelli right into her arms.

Maxie: This is awful. You know, my whole life I've always been the girl who's stolen boyfriends from other girls. I've never been in this situation before. Not that Spinelli is my boyfriend. He's my friend. I care about him, and I don't want to lose him.

Robin: I guess it just got to me when I was watching Sonny holding Emma. It reminded me of Michael when he was a little boy. You know, there's -- there are so many people around him that love him, and still, what happened to him is completely senseless, you know? And it just reminded me how fragile children really are.

Patrick: Robin, nothing's going to happen to Emma.

Robin: I know, I know. It's different because, you know, Sonny's a mobster, and that's why Michael got shot, but things happen to kids all the time who aren't related to mobsters. I mean, I just don't -- honestly, I don't know what I would do if something happened to Emma.

Patrick: What happened to Michael was tragic, but those circumstances are one in a billion.

Robin: Tragedies happen every day -- medical illnesses, you know, fluke accidents --

Patrick: And there are also millions of children that live their lives happy and healthy with nothing more than an ear infection and a scraped knee. Let's at least give Emma a chance to be one of those kids. Healthy, happy, and safe.

Robin: Listen, I know that you mean well, okay, and I want to believe you, but don't you think it's a little arrogant to think that we're above all of that? I mean, yeah, maybe I got lucky, and I didn't get full-blown AIDS, and I didn't die, but --

Patrick: But Robin, you've successfully lived with HIV. That's huge.

Robin: Well, it doesn't mean that I haven't had my share of illnesses and loss and now I'm magically immune. I mean, there's just -- there's just so many things that could go wrong that I didn't even consider.

Patrick: What's going on with you? Robin, this isn't like you at all.

Robin: What's that supposed to mean?

Luke: Considering Kellyís long and storied career, it was never as mob-free as my sister likes to pretend.

Mike: Yeah, but you know, maybe hiring me back is counterproductive.

Luke: No, no, Mike, we both -- we're very happy with the way you run the place. You treat it like it's your own.

Mike: Besides, if I don't run it, maybe you'd have to.

Luke: Tie me down, I'm out the door.

Mike: Yeah.

Luke: So how are we going to convince Barbara that you can keep the thick-necks out?

Mike: Well, we could print up a sign that says, "No shirts, no shoes, no mob." No, wait a minute. Look, Luke, I'm going to do my best, but I can't promise you there won't be the occasional situation, you know, with a bookie, a loan shark.

Luke: Oh, that's okay. That's just atmosphere.

Mike: You know, call me crazy, but this -- this is looking exactly like the old Kellyís.

Luke: Yeah, well, see, that's the point. Barbara doesn't want it rebuilt, she wants it restored, and what my baby sister wants, she gets.

Mike: Okay, okay, so we do it retro, right down to the broken-down deep fryer.

Luke: Good.

Mike: Good. You're really enjoying this, aren't you? At Sonny's expense.

Luke: Well, I have a soft spot for the old place, you know. I spent many a troubled hour there as a youth.

Mike: Yeah, and I thought that Bobbie was the Spencer with the sentimental streak.

Luke: I have my moments.

Mike: Yeah, I know. So how -- how is your wife?

Luke: Good, everything's back on. She forgave me. I'm back in the house. The marriage is on again.

Mike: I'm sorry. I, uh -- I meant Laura.

Luke: Go to work, my friend.

Mike: You got it, boss.

Carly: I'm just going to sit here on the couch I picked out.

Claudia: Are you sure you want to do it like this? Wouldn't it be better for us to coexist?

Carly: I'm just here to talk to Sonny. If you have a problem with that, that's your business.

Claudia: Okay, so obviously it's true what they say. You can't stand the idea of Sonny with another woman. Sonny gained access to my family's business when he married me, and there's no way in hell he's going to give that up, Carly.

Carly: We'll see.

Claudia: Oh, I know what you're doing. You're trying to drive a wedge between me and Sonny. You think if you can just convince him to back out of his deal with the Zaccharas, Sonny will end up with no power at all, and your little Jason will end up on top.

Nadine: How does one corporation get so much power that they can get the IRS to audit me?

Nikolas: It's called the military industrial complex. It's a network of complimentary interest. You have to have endless, far-reaching resources to fight these people.

Nadine: But I donít.

Nikolas: I do.

Nadine: I'm in no position to turn you down.

Nikolas: It would be an honor if you'd let me help you with this.

Nadine: What if I didn't know you? The Equinox Corporation would eat me alive. This is so wrong. It's not what this country is about.

Nikolas: I know, I know.

Alexis: Hey.

Nikolas: Hi. Well, hello there. Your timing is impeccable.

Alexis: I was interviewing an assault victim.

Nikolas: Really? Did you get what you needed?

Alexis: I did.

Nikolas: Good.

Alexis: What's up?

Nikolas: How would you feel about taking on the U.S. government?

Winnifred: The Jackal is extraordinary. As much as I excel at cyber games, I can't imagine having the courage to create one on my own.

Spinelli: And yet it was the Jackal's overconfidence that led to his cyber sanctum being breached.

Winnifred: Dude.

Spinelli: It's true. The ace of cyberspace has been hacked.

Winnifred: Well, no doubt that the marauder got lucky while the Jackal was attending to vital matters of his friend and mentor, Stone Cold.

Spinelli: One can only hope that the marauders were just trying to test my prowess, for if there was nefarious intent, myself and all those that entrust me with their secrets are at risk.

Winnifred: No doubt your pride got stung a bit with this incursion, but really, how bad could it be?

Spinelli: The priestess has no idea of the potential for doom. There are access codes that open doors to unimaginable places.

Winnifred: Well, perhaps if you would do me the honor of extending your trust, we could devise a means to find your hacker's intent.

Maxie: Well, I'll let Kate know. Well, just send me an email, and I'll check it when I get to the office. I have to go.

Spinelli: Maximista will no doubt rejoice that we have --

Maxie: Enough. This stalking has got to stop.

Spinelli: No, but I was just sharing the details of my cyber troubles.

Maxie: And she just happened to show up again?

Winnifred and Spinelli: Clean air is conducive to cyber tasks.

Spinelli: Oh.

[Winnifred laughs]

Maxie: Stop it. I'm on to you, okay? I'm not going to let you get away with it.

Robin: You know, you don't bring a child into this world because of some misplaced sense of entitlement, you know? It takes a lot of thought. It takes a lot of planning, and I don't know, a little bit of humility.

Patrick: Robin, we've thought about it plenty. We talked it to death.

Robin: Never mind. Obviously, I'm not explaining it right.

Patrick: No, you're explaining it fine. It's just -- it's an emotional time for you.

Robin: It's an emotional time for me? I'm a doctor, okay? I know all about hormones.

Patrick: Okay, well, it's one thing to know about them, and it's another thing to live through them. Maybe we should just go talk to Dr. Kelly about this.

Robin: No, we are not going to do anything.

Patrick: Robin, is it possible that you're suffering from postpartum depression?

Robin: Where did that come from?

Patrick: You've just been all over the place emotionally.

Robin: Yeah, I had a baby, I almost died, and we got married within the span of a few months. I think I'm allowed to be a little bit off.

Patrick: Listen, I'm not criticizing you. I'm just -- I'm concerned about you.

Robin: I canít believe you're serious. Just drop it, okay?

Patrick: Consider it dropped.

Claudia: It's obvious where your loyalties lie. You're all about Jason.

Carly: This has nothing to do with Jason.

Claudia: Oh, come on. It has everything to do with Jason. You manipulated Jason into taking over so you could punish Sonny for what happened to Michael.

Carly: Don't bring my kid into this.

Claudia: Well, it doesn't take a genius to figure it out, Carly. Your game? Come on. You've backed Jason since he took over. Sonny found a way around you, though. He aligned himself with the Zaccharas, and now he has more power than Jason.

Carly: Is that what you think?

Claudia: Yeah. Sonny's in a position to take his good friend Jason down, and you're running around panicked, trying to stop that from happening.

Carly: I made a conscious decision to stay out of it, but if you wanted to change my mind, you're doing a hell of a job.

Carly: Sonny only married you to gain access to the Zacchara muscle.

Claudia: Yeah, and now that he has it, he's not giving it up.

Carly: Don't be so sure. Sonny would never be able to hurt Jason.

Claudia: You underestimate him.

Carly: No, I know Sonny. I know him. He's ambitious, yes. But he knows he can only push Jason so far.

Claudia: Sonny will eliminate Jason. You made that inevitable when you forced them to choose sides against each other. You tore them apart. You pushed Sonny away. You shut him out. You practically pushed him right into my arms. So, Carly, blame me all you want. You're the reason those men are enemies.

Jax: Makes you wonder how we all managed before we had those things, doesn't it?

Olivia: Yeah. Beats looking through the want ads. I can check the job stings, send out my resume, and set up an interview, all without leaving the comfort of your beautiful lobby.

Jax: Oh, any luck?

Olivia: Auto dealerships certainly aren't hiring right now. I'm sure a man in your position wouldn't understand this, but jobs right now are disappearing faster than you can say "Go Knicks." That's a basketball team.

Jax: Yeah, I know. I'm just wondering why you would think that I don't know about the job market. I own a number of businesses.

Olivia: Great, my bad. Anyway, I'm resilient. I'll reinvent myself.

Engineer: Mr. Jacks?

Jax: Yes?

Engineer: Your friend was right. A leak shorted out the power line. Sorry I didn't catch that.

Jax: Oh, well, there you go.

Engineer: Good catch, miss.

Olivia: Yeah. Happy to be of service.

Jax: Thanks.

Olivia: What the hell are you --

Jax: You won't be needing this anymore. You just got yourself a job.

Ric: You know, it's going to be quite some time until John is processed. You might want to leave and come back later.

Lulu: You might want to stop telling me what to do.

Ric: Just trying to help.

Lulu: How do you live with yourself? I mean, really, do they pay you enough to justify the crap that you're pulling?

Ric: Well, now, that's an interesting attitude, considering I'm trying to get your boyfriend out of jail.

Lulu: Hmm. You helped Anthony set Johnny up. Why do you bother messing with other people's lives?

Ric: Lulu, you expect miracles. You want John to be an ordinary guy.

Lulu: That's what Johnny wants, too.

Ric: No, he's not. He's never going to be. And the sooner you accept that, the easier it's going to be for everybody concerned, especially John.

Johnny: You're still here.

Ric: Well, we have to discuss your case.

Johnny: I've asked for a public defender.

Ric: Well, good luck with that.

Lulu: I hope you burn in hell, and I hope you bring Johnny's father with you.

Ric: Nice seeing you, too.

Johnny: Ric and my father may be evil, but they're not stupid. They've done a near-perfect job of framing me.

Lulu: No frame is perfect. We can fix this.

Nadine: My Aunt Raylene designed a plow coupling and had it patented, and then she licensed it to the equinox defense company, and now they're using it as part of a weapons defense system.

Nikolas: Nadine's aunt passed away last month and left the patent to her.

Alexis: I'm sorry. My condolences.

Nadine: Yeah, thanks. I just can't believe that my Aunt Raylene wouldn't know that they're using it as part of a weapon. It's supposed to be farming equipment.

Nikolas: Nadine informed the company rep that she wouldn't be renewing the license, and this was their response.

Alexis: Oh. You know, these kinds of corporations are as powerful as they are corrupt. They're making billions of dollars off the war and defense contracts, and they also have associations with very important people in government. The horrible thing is that there's young men and women being killed and maimed so that these Equinox people can line their pockets.

Nadine: So how do we fight them?

Alexis: It's not going to be easy. I mean, if this is as you believe, if this patent is a key element in the system, this is a matter of national security.

Maxie: I'm on to you and your little game. I mean, really, who do you think you are?

Winnifred: I'm sorry; I'm not trying to make trouble --

Maxie: That was a rhetorical question. I'm not intimidated by your scary intellect, and all the techno-babble in the world won't make you pretty or fun or fix that horror you call a wardrobe, so why don't you stop wasting your time and get lost?

Winnifred: I won't waste any more of your time.

Spinelli: Oh. There's no need to retreat, let alone tender an apology. Oh.

Maxie: Trust me, Spinelli, you're better off without that weirdo. What a waste of space.

Spinelli: Maximista, this is totally beneath you.

Robin: What? I don't know who touched this. There could be germs all over it.

Patrick: I guess you can't be too careful.

Robin: What's that?

Patrick: It is for you.

Robin: It's for me?

Patrick: Yes. I was out and about, and I saw it, and I thought, you know what? Let me get you something for your -- our one-month anniversary. But then I thought, why not?

Robin: Well, I can't imagine what I'd need. I mean, unless it's those sheets for the crib. Wow. That's -- that's really sexy.

Patrick: You're still the sexiest woman I know.

Robin: Come on.

Patrick: Would I lie about that?

Robin: Well, I don't feel very sexy right now.

Patrick: Well, why don't you go try it on? Maybe it'll change. Emma's still sleeping, it's perfect timing.

Robin: You know -- I'm just -- I don't think that I'm ready. I'm sorry.

Patrick: It's okay.

Robin: But thank you for that. It's really pretty.

Sam: Hi, it's me again. I know I'm still playing phone tag, and I wouldn't be bugging you like this if it weren't important. It's about Spinelli. So I don't want to -- yes -- I don't want to say anything over voice mail, Jason, just give me a call as soon as you get this. It's really important. I need to talk to you about it right away.

Lucky: Talk to him about what?

Lulu: Dad?

Luke: Down here, sweetheart.

Lulu: What are you doing under there?

Luke: Oh. I'm just taking care of a little business.

Lulu: Isn't that where the cheat button is?

Luke: Cupcake, you do me proud. So, what's up?

Lulu: Well, Johnny's been arrested, and Anthony framed him, and Ric wants him to go back to his family, but that's the last thing that Johnny wants, and he --

Luke: Hold on, back up. Start over. Why did Anthony frame his son?

Lulu: Because Johnny left his family. He wants nothing to do with his father or the business.

Luke: And the old man didn't take it well.

Lulu: He's not happy unless Johnny is under his thumb, so he had some guy beat up, he had him paid to I.D. Johnny, and Johnny doesn't have an alibi. And Ric Lansing agreed to represent him only if he goes back to the family. What do you think?

Luke: These guys are good.

Lulu: But you're better.

Luke: Flattery. You really want me to do this, don't you?

Lulu: Hmm.

Alexis: Hey, Melissa, it's Alexis Davis.

Nikolas: This is just the kind of fight Alexis can get her teeth into. If anything can be done, she can do it.

Alexis: All right, I just left a message with my friend in Washington. Here's what I think. The best option is to go straight to Equinox's number one customer, which happens to be the United States government.

Nadine: So what do we do?

Alexis: My friend has very good connections with the incoming administration.

Nadine: Aren't they a little busy with the inauguration?

Alexis: I guarantee it, they will jump at the chance to expose Equinox, and now is the time.

Nikolas: You realize this isn't going to be easy, don't you?

Nadine: Yeah. But they have to be stopped. I owe it to Bruce and to everyone else who's fighting over there.

Alexis: There's no guarantee that you're going to win, you know.

Nadine: We won't know unless we try.

Olivia: Did I mention that I don't take charity?

Jax: Who said anything about charity? It's obvious I need a plant manager at my hotel.

Olivia: And you think I'm qualified because --

Jax: Because you just made my electrician look like a fool. Besides, you said that you ran a business.

Olivia: Oh, right, right, right. I ran the parts department at an auto dealership, which is very much like running a four-star hotel, except not at all.

Jax: Well, you see, I need someone to help with ordering parts, work with vendors, and coordinate support services. Does any of this sound familiar to you?

Olivia: Okay, okay. It's not exactly the parts department, but you're getting close.

Jax: Good, so you'll take the job?

Olivia: But wait, wait, wait, wait. Don't I understand you and Carly are co-owners of this hotel?

Jax: Oh, don't worry about that.

Olivia: Don't you think you want to run this past her or anything?

Jax: No, I have autonomy.

Olivia: And what does your autonomy say I'm getting paid?

Jax: I don't know, whatever you were making before, plus 15%.

Olivia: And benefits?

Jax: God, I hope so.

Sam: I was just calling Jason about some stuff that came up when we were questioned by the feds.

Lucky: Yeah, what stuff?

Sam: Let's not do this again, please?

Lucky: Meaning you don't want to tell me.

Sam: No, meaning that I don't think I have to go over every little thing all over again all the time.

Lucky: Well, okay, if you walked in and I was talking to a woman, someone I used to live with, about setting up an urgent meeting --

Sam: I go through that all the time with you and Elizabeth.

Lucky: You can't compare the two. I'm helping to raise two kids.

Sam: Are you kidding me? You guys talk about more than just that.

Lucky: Let's forget about lunch. I'm losing my appetite.

Sam: Hold on. That's it?

Lucky: What do you want from me?

Sam: I want you to trust me.

Lucky: Well, you're not making it very easy. I mean, either you still have something for Jason that you can't admit --

Sam: I do not have anything --

Lucky: Or you're still doing something illegal again and you won't admit it.

Sam: Stop treating me like a suspect, please?

Lucky: Well, then, stop treating me like an enemy. I'm just getting tired of being on the outside looking in.

Lulu: Johnny would rather go to prison than go back to his family.

Luke: Well, if he gets sent up, I'll get him out. But let's don't get ahead of ourselves. First, we have to expose the frame-up.

Lulu: How are we supposed to do that? Johnny doesn't even know the guy who claims he beat him up.

Luke: Well, then, that's where we start.

Lulu: We?

Luke: Papa still has a trick or two to teach you, princess. Let's go.

Lulu: I'm coming.

Jax: Thank you so much for taking care of this so quickly. Just let me know when it's done. Okay. So, Ms. Falconeri, are you going to take the job, or are you going to go out for more tedious job interviews?

Olivia: Answer me one thing.

Jax: More questions. Is it just me, or do you have trust issues?

Olivia: It's a Brooklyn thing. Why do you want to work with me?

Jax: I don't know. I mean, I love working with Kate. You know, you're a cousin, and I've seen the way you handle people. You're definitely as smart as she is.

Olivia: Okay, okay. On the worst day I ever lived, I'm more capable than Connie. Now, she'll tell you that she got better grades in school than me, but she did all the homework. I didn't even show up for class.

Jax: Oh. Do you regret your misspent youth?

Olivia: Who said it was misspent? I had a ball.

Jax: Good, because I have no patience for regretful, brooding, unimaginative people.

Olivia: Right, I'll remember that.

Jax: Is that a yes?

Olivia: God, you are pushy. Are you sure you're not from Brooklyn?

Jax: Come on, do something smart and take this job, huh? You know you want to.

Olivia: What the hell. Why not?

Claudia: Why don't you warn Sonny that I'm no good for him? I'd love to see his reaction.

Carly: You're the one who underestimates Sonny. He knows who's truly loyal to him. He respects people who live by a code, and you donít.

Claudia: It doesn't matter. You're out of his life now, Carly. And you're not getting back in.

Carly: This has been an enlightening conversation. You've managed to convince me that you are dangerous to Sonny's well-being and probably his life. Now I just need to figure out a way to get rid of you.

Maxie: Spinelli. I brought you a soda.

Spinelli: You owe me neither an apology nor a consoling beverage. But Maximista appropriately owes both to the priestess.

Maxie: Oh, don't call her that.

Spinelli: Why?

Maxie: She hasn't earned the right for you to give her a name.

Spinelli: I think that is for me to determine.

Maxie: Everything I said was true. I mean, Winnifred's a pathetic drone. A hanger-on who's got your head so far in the clouds, you can't even see she's stalking you.

Spinelli: Is the priestess not justified in thinking that the Jackal has attributes that are, dare I say, worthy of her admiration?

Maxie: Of course you're worthy, Spinelli. No one knows how your attributes rock more than I do. That's why it's so frustrating that you can't see something is up with her.

Spinelli: You are being most unkind.

Maxie: You know, maybe it's because you're too sweet and gullible to notice to the truth. But I'm not. Winnifred has some weird cyber-obsession with you, and it's creepy. You can't trust her.

Spinelli: Maximista's words are indeed disheartening.
