FBI Agent: If you cannot afford one, one will be appointed for you. Do you understand these rights?

Maxie: What are you doing? Spinelli is a law-abiding citizen. You can't treat him like a violent criminal.

Spinelli: Perhaps the men of law have mistaken my identity?

Agent: No mistake, Mr. Spinelli. We have evidence that you are a threat to national security. This way, please.

Nikolas: My sole interest in this matter is to carry out Ms. Crowell's wishes. She's a patriotic American who questions the ethics of the Equinox Corporation, not her country. All she wants is for her aunt's invention to be used for good, not just for profit.

Senator: May we have your name again?

Nikolas: Nikolas Cassadine.

Senator: Mr. Cassadine, you're not a citizen of the United States. Is that not correct?

Carly: I love Jax, and I know he loves me.

Diane: I don't dispute that, but are you prepared for the financial cost of dragging out this divorce?

Jax: All I'm asking you is that you stall the divorce.

Alexis: Indefinitely?

Jax: Well, for as long as it takes.

Carly: Today was a breakthrough. Jax finally heard me.

Jax: I'm not ready to stop being Carly's husband.

Claudia: Sonny, the entire shipment is blown to bits. Daddy's going to blame you. You know he's going to blame you for this.

Sonny: Let him.

Jason: From now on, you stay out of my way.

Maxie: How could you?

Mac: Come here. What am I being accused of now?

Maxie: You made good on all those threats to keep Spinelli away from me.

Mac: I don't know what you're talking about.

Maxie: Oh, please, how many times have you told me that Spinelli is too dangerous for me because he works for Jason and he does all those things on the internet that might not be strictly by the book legal?

Mac: A lot.

Maxie: Yeah, so I didn't listen to you and you had to have him arrested by the FBI?

Mac: Maxie, the FBI said they'd be using our facilities to process a prisoner. They never said it was Spinelli.

Maxie: Well, it is and it's awful.

Mac: What happened?

Maxie: Spinelli and I were on the pier and these FBI guys came out of nowhere. They put handcuffs on him. They took his laptop. Dad, he was scared out of his wits. You have to do something to help him.

Mac: Maxie, this is the FBI, all right, the federal government. Do not, I repeat, do not get involved.

Inspector Rayner: Commissioner Scorpio, we're bringing in the prisoner now.

Maxie: You. You did this to Spinelli.

Alexis: You're my closest friend, and I happen to think you're the most wonderful man on the planet. And honestly, I think it's doubtful that I would consider any woman worthy of you.

Jax: You've warned me about Carly before. I heard you. I understand your concerns. I do.

Alexis: Despite her best intentions, can she really be trusted?

Diane: Jax could easily realize that you are intentionally stalling the divorce.

Carly: So, we'll have to go for something big, something he wants.

Diane: Something of material value.

Carly: Something on an emotional level.

Diane: And according to my records, that something should be –

Diane and Carly: The Silent Lady.

Alexis: I think that you need to consider the possibility that Carly may be incapable of a mutually supportive relationship.

Jax: Carly loves me, okay? I'll be happier with her than anyone else.

Carly: Jax named the Silent Lady after me, but his name is on the paperwork. It's perfect. Tell him I want it.

Diane: Consider it done.

Carly: I knew you were the perfect lady for the job.

Diane: It's what keeps me in shoes. Let's just hope it's enough to accomplish our goal.

Carly: Jax's parents had an amazing relationship, and I know Jax wants that for himself. He'll give our marriage another try.

Diane: If he does, it may very well be his last try.

Jax: Carly and I have had such wonderful times together.

Alexis: As opposed to the not wonderful times?

Jax: Well, I mean, they outweigh the bad ones. We had wonderful vacations, trips to Montreal. We had picnics in the park, sailing the Silent Lady.

Alexis: I just don't want to see my friend get hurt again.

Jax: Yeah, that makes two of us.

Diane: Jax has reached the end of the line with you, Carly, and I must say, I wholeheartedly agree with him.

Carly: You're supposed to be my lawyer.

Diane: But if you throw Jax over for Sonny again, you're going to have to find yourself a new lawyer, because you will deserve exactly what you get.

Nikolas: I am a Greek national. My problems with my resident alien status are due to an oversight on my part.

Senator: Thought you could fly under the radar?

Nikolas: No, not at all. I actually feel very much at home in this country. Perhaps I took that for granted. My mother is an American citizen. All I did was neglect to apply for the same privileges that she --

Senator: We don't care about your immigration problems. We're here to determine if the U.S. government should intervene on the part of the Equinox Corporation, to enable them to secure and use the patents for weapons manufacturing. And frankly, as a foreign national, your motives here are suspect.

Elizabeth: Cameron, let's park ourselves on this bench here, okay?

Sam: Here, I'll help.

Elizabeth: Oh, my blanket. Look who it is. It's Sam.

Sam: Hi.

Elizabeth: Thank you. I've been dropping stuff all day.

Sam: I'm sure you brought too much. I don't know how you juggle it all.

Elizabeth: Here, put your stuff on the bench. Sometimes neither do I, but I just count my blessings every day.

Sam: What are you guys up to?

Elizabeth: Well, we are meeting Lucky for the Parade of Lights.

Sam: That sounds like a lot of fun.

Elizabeth: Cameron really likes watching the boats all lit up, going to the point and back.

[Explosion in the distance]

Sam: All right, that's a boat on fire.

Elizabeth: Close to Jason's piers.

Jason: I evacuated the ship before I had it blown up so none of your people were hurt. I can't promise that is going to be the case the next time.

Sonny: Well, thank you very much, but how much do you want to push me?

Jason: What are you -- you brought a shipment through my lanes and tried to land it on my property.

Sonny: Well, I know the docks. I've been using them for years.

Jason: Well, you're running shipments for Anthony Zacchara now, Sonny.

Sonny: What do you want me to do? I run it where I want it and when I want it, which means you're going to have to back off.

Carly: One citrus martini on the house, at least my half.

Diane: Thank you very much. A delightful distraction from me being concerned about you throwing over Jax for Sonny.

Carly: It will never happen.

Diane: You say that with conviction.

Carly: I don't want to be with Sonny. I want to be with Jax. Sonny and I have gone our separate ways.

Diane: One could hardly call your ways separate.

Carly: Sonny and I have a history. We have two children together. I want my future to be with Jax. He's good for me. I want to be good for him.

Diane: That's an admirable sentiment.

Carly: I mean it.

Diane: All right, then be realistic, Carly. In Alexis' office, you gave Jax a very winning speech about love, but as soon as Sonny's in crisis, you are unable to turn your back on him. That's not a criticism. That's just a fact. So, why has the pattern changed? What's different this time?

Jax: Hi.

Carly: Hi.

Jax: Alexis abandoned me for a meeting with the mayor. I see we've ditched the paperwork and replaced them with martinis.

Carly: We're mixing business with pleasure.

Jax: It's a great idea. A very productive meeting, I assume.

Elizabeth: Hey, buddy, I've got your toys out. Stay on this bench while I talk to Sam, okay?

Elizabeth: I wonder if the Parade of Lights will be canceled.

Sam: Okay, I'll be the one to say it. I know you are probably wondering if Jason is on that ship.

Elizabeth: I can't have feelings about it one way or another. After Jake was taken, I can't be with Jason. It was a mutual decision, and I'm not going back on it.

Sam: Elizabeth, you are a great mom.

Elizabeth: My kids are my responsibility. No one's going to keep them safe and happy but me. I've jeopardized them long enough. I'm not going to do it again.

Sam: All right, look, I'm going to go check things out and I'm going to see if Jason's okay. I'm sure if you know it might be a lot easier.

Elizabeth: I don't want to know.

Jason: Sonny, this is my territory. You try to move in, I have to defend it.

Claudia: Let's get out of here before the cops show up.

Sonny: In a minute.

Sonny: We've got to stop this before it gets out of control.

Jason: Then you need to stop this.

Sonny: No, no, we need to compromise.

Jason: You're trying to take back your territory. I don't see how that's a compromise.

Sonny: No, first of all, I asked you to let me in here. We could do business here together. It's not about right and wrong. You just --

Jason: No, if you start using my lanes things will become unstable. I've got a lot of people working for me, okay? I'm responsible for them.

Sonny: You think I would jeopardize my former employees?

Jason: I think you already have jeopardized them.

Sonny: If we work together, we wipe out the bad guys. I don't think you want a war, but that's where this is headed and it's going to blow up in our faces.

Claudia: Can we stop talking like this is mutual? This is Jason's fault. He took away your children and now he's blowing up your shipments.

Maxie: I thought you were a whack job, but you're really some undercover federal agent?

Mac: Maxie, that's enough.

Inspector Rayner: This is a matter of national security.

Spinelli: I'm most certain there has been a grievous error in judgment.

Agent: This way.

Maxie: Spinelli, don't you say another word to those creeps.

Mac: A matter of national security? Spinelli?

Maxie: This is insane. These people are lying. They're setting Spinelli up.

Mac: I told you that's enough.

Inspector Rayner: Further discussions with the suspect will be private.

Maxie: Dad, please do something. You have to help him.

Mac: Maxie, I'm sure the paperwork is in order.

Inspector Rayner: I'll have more information for you once I've interrogated the prisoner.

Maxie: How could you turn on Spinelli like that?

Winnifred: He violated national security.

Maxie: What now? Are you going to file assault charges against me? Go ahead, use your badge to bully me like you did to Spinelli.

Winnifred: The investigation wasn't personal.

Maxie: Spinelli thought you were his friend, and you took advantage of his kind and generous nature.

Winnifred: Well, I have a feeling you did it before me.

Maxie: Yeah, I did, and I feel awful, but do you feel the least bit of remorse? I mean, with all the horrible people out there doing awful things, do you feel bad that you wasted your time targeting poor Spinelli?

Inspector Rayner: Are you aware of your multiple crimes, Mr. Spinelli?

Spinelli: No, no, not at all, sir.

Inspector Rayner: Hacking into government defense systems, Interpol, witness protection data, high-level security files and monitoring systems. Pretty intense stuff for the local computer whiz.

Spinelli: I assure you, it was not intended to harm.

Inspector Rayner: It was espionage and high treason.

Cameron: Daddy.

Lucky: Hey, oh, wow. It looks like your mommy brought a nice picnic. I brought some cookies, if it's not too much sugar.

Elizabeth: No such thing on a night like this. How exciting.

Lucky: Hey, I heard about the explosion on the police radio.

Elizabeth: What caused it?

Lucky: We don't know yet.

Elizabeth: Well, Sam was here earlier. She and I were wondering if maybe Jason was involved.

Lucky: Sam went to check it out?

Elizabeth: She wanted to know what happened.

Lucky: What about you? You must be worried, too.

Elizabeth: I am, but I'm trying to teach myself not to be.

Claudia: This is a big port. There's plenty of room for all of us. You guys could coexist. You could live and you could let live.

Sonny: Claudia, stay out of it.

Claudia: What? I'm saying the same thing you are.

Jason: Does your wife speak for you?

Claudia: Hey, you know what? Sonny was bringing in a shipment and you just blew it to bits, Jason, no warning, just boom, gone. How do you expect him to respond to that kind of betrayal?

Sonny: Okay, I extended an offer of peace.

Jason: No, no you did not. You moved in on my territory without my permission.

Sonny: Okay.

Jason: That's not peace.

Sonny: Say what you want to say. Just watch your back.

[Phone vibrates]

Sam: [Whispering] Hello?

Maxie: Sam, it's Maxie. You have to help me find Jason. It's an emergency. Spinelli's been arrested by the FBI.

Sam: Jason -- whoa, whoa -- hold on. I'm sorry. I wasn't spying on you. Maxie's freaking out. Spinelli's in trouble. Can you please talk to her?

Tracy: I try never to engage in futile endeavors. Keeping you on the straight and narrow is the essence of futility.

Luke: Now, there's the pragmatic spanky-buns that I've come to know and love.

Tracy: Pragmatic, yes, but I don't think anybody would call me stupid.

Luke: Well, I certainly never would.

Tracy: Well, perhaps it has slipped your mind, as inconvenient facts often do, but I have a lot of money invested in this place. More than I thought actually, because you seem to have helped yourself to my bank account over the weekend.

Luke: I'm going to put it back in. I mean, I didn't realize that you would notice it so quickly.

Tracy: I always notice money, but truthfully, when it comes to you it's secondary. You are my primary concern, keeping you alive that is.

Luke: Well, take a good look, sweetheart. I've never been more vibrant.

Tracy: Luke, perhaps you've been distracted by your recent tale of two wives to notice that all hell is breaking loose in Port Charles. And I'm not talking every day, run-of-the-mill mob activity. I'm talking off the charts.

Luke: Petunia, you have to agree, I'm sure, that I know a little more about what's going on in this town regarding the mob than you do.

Tracy: Don't you patronize me, Luke. I was married to a mob boss, and when he died, I took over the organization. I know a mob war when I see one.

Luke: Well, not to diminish your street cred or anything, sweetheart, but in this particular situation, I know more than you do about what's going on.

Tracy: Okay, let me tell you what I know then. I know that smarmy sociopath, Sonny Corinthos, has aligned himself with the psychotic Zaccharas. I know that you and Sonny are buds from way back, just enough to raise alarm bells. And your Sonny is seriously losing his grip. Brides are being shot at the altar, young girls attacked, diners blown to bits, and alliances solidified by marriages of convenience. Sonny is on a suicide mission, and I know that attracts you. I know danger and recklessness, it attracts you, Luke. Please do me a favor, don't get involved.

Diane: Okay, fortification for the hours of divorce addendums ahead. Prepare to be fleeced.

Jax: Thank you. Well, I guess this divorce is going to take awhile.

Carly: Yeah, looks like this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Jax: Wonderful.

Carly: I hope Alexis is giving you the ex-husband discount.

Jax: No, no. I'm sure Diane’s not giving you a discount either.

Carly: Well, what the heck. You know, I mean, it's worth every penny, isn't it?

Jax: Yeah, is it?

Carly: Okay, I have to put my cards on the table. I asked Diane to stretch this out as long as possible.

Jax: Why?

Carly: I was hoping I could use that time to make you fall in love with me again.

Jax: I'm sorry, Carly, but that's not possible.

Jax: I can't fall back in love with you, because I never fell out of love with you, Carly. That's what makes this so difficult.

Carly: Or easy.

Jax: Loving each other and being compatible, you know, are two different things.

Carly: Jax, compatibility is meaning that we have things in common, and we do. We own this hotel together. You're a great stepfather to my sons. We both love to travel. We like to have a nice life.

Jax: Yes, a life that we can't seem to sustain, because I always run away, and you always get pulled back into Sonny's drama.

Carly: Okay, that's not going to happen. I know that if you give this marriage another chance, it's going to be our last chance. And there's no way I'm going to screw that up.

Jax: I know you believe that. I know.

Carly: You know what we're doing? Do you see what we're doing? We always do this. You hold back, and I'm trying to convince you to give this marriage another shot.

Jax: Yeah, yeah, it seems to be a pattern of ours lately.

Carly: Then let's break the pattern, okay? Can we do that?

Jax: Okay --

Carly: You love me. Just trust that.

Jax: You put the cards on the table. I will put my cards on the table. I asked Alexis to stall the divorce as well. Yeah, we both had the same idea. I was -- don't look at me like that. I was the one pushing for this divorce, and I realized that maybe that's not what I want.

Jason: Maxie, Maxie, Maxie, just calm down. Tell me what's going on.

Maxie: Spinelli was arrested by the FBI. They're in the interrogation room right now. The senior agent is some guy named Rayner. He's obviously grilling poor Spinelli. He looks like a deer caught in the headlights. You have to do something.

Jason: Okay, I want you to call Diane. If they let you in to see Spinelli, I want you to tell him to say nothing at all. And I'm on my way.

Maxie: Hurry, please.

Jason: I'm going to fix this.

Sam: That was quite a promise.

Jason: Maxie said something about Agent Rayner. He wants me to cooperate. I don't know what he would want with Spinelli.

Sam: Oh, damn it.

Jason: What?

Sam: Well, it's just that Spinelli came over to my apartment the other day, and I tried to warn him because Rayner had mentioned his name. But he couldn't focus because somebody hacked into his computer.

Jason: Somebody hacked into Spinelli's computer?

Sam: Yes.

Jason: Well, if it was the FBI, they have all the evidence they need.

Spinelli: I do not intend to trespass on the federal ones.

Inspector Rayner: Mr. Spinelli, I am going to give you a piece of advice. Say nothing and admit to nothing. The seat you're in is hot enough as it is. Don't make it any hotter.

Maxie: Oh, Diane, I was just about to call you. You have to help Spinelli.

Diane: Do you know exactly what he's been charged with?

Maxie: Treason, or espionage, or something crazy like that. And you know Spinelli. He's going to try to explain it away in his convoluted Spinelli speak, and the feds are going to think he's confessing to hijacking the space shuttle or something.

Diane: Maxie, just calm down. I will do the best that I can.

Alexis: I just got a call.

Diane: What is going on?

Alexis: I just got a call. There's a suspect in custody, and the FBI took jurisdiction.

Diane: But on what grounds do they have for arresting Spinelli?

Alexis: Violation of the homeland security act, treason, and espionage.

Diane: Oh, come on, not to put too fine a point on it, but Spinelli would be hard-pressed to hurt a fly.

Alexis: That's true, which is why I suspect he's merely a means to an end.

Claudia: You're mad at me.

Sonny: Don't interfere when I'm talking to Jason again.

Claudia: What I said was true.

Sonny: I have history with Jason. You don't.

Claudia: That's exactly why I can see it more clearly than you can. Sonny, playing nice with Jason is not the answer. You have to hit back and hit hard.

Sonny: I thought you had a soft spot for Jason.

Claudia: If you let him get away with what he did, it's going to make you look weak to Daddy.

Sonny: Oh, daddy -- I don't give a damn about daddy. I'm in charge now. I don't answer to anyone.

Claudia: That was Daddy's money and Daddy's shipment. Jason made a stupid move by blowing that shipment up and leaving you untouched. You have to use it to your advantage. You have to get the upper hand here.

Sonny: What if I don't?

Luke: Before you work yourself up into a lather here, just hear me. I had nothing to do with Sonny Corinthos' business. We were discussing politics here and my continuing neutrality.

Tracy: Okay, how long do you expect that to keep up?

Luke: As long as I want it to. I mean, come on, Tracy, I am not some mob-infatuated, dumb-ass kid. I know that life. I've been there, and I left it behind. And I'm certainly not going to jeopardize us, by fighting battles that aren't even my own.

Tracy: What if Sonny can't hold up his end of the bargain? What if some outside faction bombs this place just to make a point?

Luke: Well, that would be a different situation wouldn't it? Because I do protect what's mine, but I don't anticipate those kinds of problems. Why are you bending yourself out of shape when your shape is so perfect?

Tracy: One reason, because I want you here with me. I want you alive and kicking and infuriating and stealing my money and stealing my heart. Don't you know that you are the best time I have ever had? And I am nowhere near ready to give it up. New rule, if you get killed, only I can do it.

Luke: I can live with that.

Claudia: Look, it's simple. It's really simple. Someone's going to pay for that shipment. Do you want it to be Jason, or do you want it to be you?

Sonny: I was reasoning with Jason, and you lit a fire under both of us. So, what's really going on here? You think that if Jason and I make peace that I'm not going to need Anthony anymore? And this whole deal, this marriage, is just going to go out the window? Actually, that's a good thing. So, what's the down side?

Claudia: When my father was in charge, I was nothing but his despised daughter. My father has really old-fashioned ideas about women and their place in the home. But I knew a lot about the business. I learned a lot from my time in Italy and working with my uncle. Come on, you might not be the most enlightened guy I've ever met, but you're smart enough to know that I'm smart. And I'm capable, and I think you won't admit it. But you know I'm looking out for your best interest.

Sonny: Well, you're working pretty damn hard to convince me.

Claudia: Well, you did a good thing. You did a really good thing. When you went against my father, you stopped him from framing John. Sonny, you made my father really angry, really angry. You could not afford to lose a shipment on top of it. The only way that you're going to redeem yourself and save face in my father's eyes is to retaliate.

Sonny: Do you really think Jason is a threat?

Claudia: He blew up a shipment. He sent a very clear message that peaceful coexistence is not in the cards. So, yeah, I'd say he's a threat.

Sonny: I'll deal with it my way.

Claudia: Sonny, a line has been crossed. My father is going to be out for blood. So, if you want to cement your position with my father and prove to him whose side you're really on, you're going to have to take Jason down.

Maxie: Even you have to admit Spinelli's a wonderful person.

Winnifred: I do admit it, but he still broke the law.

Maxie: What Spinelli does isn't criminal to him. He loves that cyber stuff. He's a genius at it. And when he's behind his computer, he feels useful and important. There's no malice or evil intent. And now he's in there, scared out of his mind, because you took advantage of him.

Winnifred: This was my first field assignment. I did not know this was going to happen.

Maxie: I don't care. Spinelli will probably feel better if he could see me. You should arrange it.

Winnifred: I can't arrange it. Look, Spinelli is in real trouble. And unless someone pivotal comes forth on his behalf and makes a deal, he's going to end up in prison, maybe for the rest of his life.

Inspector Rayner: I have to hand it to you, Mr. Spinelli, our own tech experts couldn't have pulled off half of what you did.

Spinelli: Anything I may have accomplished, I simply --

Inspector Rayner: Hey, what did I say about keeping quiet?

Spinelli: I don't understand. If you do not wish to squeeze a confession out of me, then why am I here?

Diane: I assume that the FBI is hoping that this is going to lead to a conviction for Jason. But it could be argued that anything on Spinelli's computer is his own work and does not implicate Jason.

Alexis: My guess is they're trying to persuade him to testify against Jason.

Diane: I doubt that Mr. Grasshopper would ever consider such a thing.

Alexis: You're his attorney, maybe you should let him know it might be in his best interest. Good luck.

Jason: Where's Spinelli?

Alexis: He's in the interrogation room, Jason. Who you are and what you do, I don't think has ever been real to Spinelli until this moment.

Jason: How bad? How bad is this?

Diane: It's bad, Jason. The FBI alleges that Spinelli has hacked into multiple law enforcement databases, defense grids, tax returns. You name it. The list goes on.

Jason: Do they have proof?

Diane: If they do, then Spinelli may very well be beyond our help.

Nadine: Do you think it's a good or a bad thing they asked for a break?

Nikolas: We'll soon find out, won't we?

Senator: We've been conferring, and quite frankly, I still don't see why a foreign national should be able to decide the fate of a U.S. military weapon.

Nikolas: Senators, I have nothing but respect for this country and the privileges it has provided me. I make my home here. I pay my taxes here. I abide by its laws, and I think serving in the armed forces is one of the most honorable choices a person can make. But the companies that provide arms to those men and women are culpable themselves, and they should not be profiting off the soldiers' sacrifice. And quite frankly, I just can't see why this weapon is essential to the victory of this country. It's only essential to the Equinox bottom line.

Senator: How do we know that you won't take this patent and make your own fortune by selling it on the international market to the highest bidder?

Nadine: Stop. You can't have your bacon and eat it, too. Uh, what I mean is, can I say something?

Carly: Well, Alexis isn't my biggest fan. I'm sure she gave you lots of reasons why you should proceed with this divorce.

Jax: No, Alexis thinks you love me. She does.

Carly: Well, that's a step forward.

Jax: Yeah. She thinks you're terrible for me, but you know --

Carly: I don't care. You told her to stall.

Jax: Stall, being the operative word. I didn't say stop.

Carly: I can work with stall. I can do stall.

Jax: I know you can, because you told Diane to do the same thing.

Carly: Yes.

Jax: I'm just wondering, how were you going to stall the divorce proceedings? By bickering about who owns what?

Carly: I told her to go after the Silent Lady.

Jax: Ah, yeah, that's a good one, so I would remember all the good times we had on it.

Carly: Just like I do.

Jax: I'm supposed to take her out tonight, you know, for the Parade of Lights. I couldn't do it.

Carly: Do you remember when we sailed her from Manhattan to Newport?

Jax: Yeah, the weather was supposed to be really bad.

Carly: But it was beautiful. And when we pulled into the harbor, the sun was setting, and you popped open a bottle of champagne. It was amazing.

Jax: And you were terrific. You know, the crew thought that you were going to just laze around on the deck, but you did just as much work as everybody else on the boat.

Carly: We had fun like we always do. I don't want this night to end. Let's do dinner, my house, just the two of us. What do you say?

Jax: Well, that depends.

Carly: On what?

Jax: Whether you're going to cook or not.

Nadine: Look, I don't know much about the politics of war. I hear about it on the news just like everybody else. But I did have a boyfriend who fought in Iraq. He was a good and honest guy, and he was really proud to serve his country. I want to believe that he had the best possible equipment. And I wouldn't want to deprive anybody else of that. But I also think it's wrong for these big corporations to be profiting off of him and off of this war. I know I can't stop this, but I don't want to take part in it. This is my fight. It has been ever since my Aunt Raylene left me her patent in her will. Nikolas took it on because he knows how emotional I get. But it's not his job. It's your job to protect my right as an American citizen to do what I want with what I own. So, I hope you'll let me do that. That's all I have to say.

Senator: You've made a very convincing and compelling argument, and we're inclined to agree. The Equinox Defense Analysis and Construction Corp henceforth will be barred from using your patent.

Nadine: Oh, my gosh. Thank you so much.

Nikolas: Wow, you did it.

Nadine: Oh, I never would have had the courage to speak up in there without you.

[Phone rings]

Nikolas: Hang on for one second. Hello, Nikolas Cassadine. Yes, actually she's right here. One second. It's Alexis' friend, the guy who set up this meeting.

Nadine: Uh, hi, this is Nadine Crowell. Yeah, actually it went really well, thanks. Someone in the White House wants to speak with me?

Elizabeth: Oh, my goodness, look at those festive lights. I love it. Which one's your favorite one?

Cameron: That one.

Elizabeth: That one?

Lucky: The one that's lit up like a pirate ship.

Elizabeth: Oh, I couldn't guess that. You know which one's my favorite?

Cameron: What?

Elizabeth: The one with the really tall mast, right next to yours.

Cameron: Oh.

Lucky: So, you're having a good time?

Cameron: Yes.

Elizabeth: Yeah.

Lucky: Thank you very much for suggesting this.

Elizabeth: It just feels right. You know, all of us being together, safe and happy and well.

Lucky: Yeah, well, I'm glad to be a part of it.

Elizabeth: Well, thank you for pulling me back from the brink.

Cameron: Look.

Lucky: What is that? That one right there, it looks as big as an ocean liner.

Elizabeth: Wow, that one's amazing.

Sonny: Do me a favor. Don't tell me who to take down.

Claudia: I'm trying to respect the history that you have with Jason, but can we just face something? You have a great, big blind spot when it comes to him. And he is taking advantage of it.

Sonny: You know, it's amazing. He didn't even want run the organization. We made a deal. I insisted.

Claudia: Okay, fair enough. Maybe his motives were totally pure when he started out, when he first took over. But power changes people. I mean, come on, the guy took orders for years, and now he's giving them. I'm guessing he likes it a lot. And now he's comprised you, and he's compromised your new position.

Sonny: It was business.

Claudia: Exactly. Business is no place for friendship. Jason is a threat that has to be removed.

Sonny: Okay, stop telling me what to do.

Claudia: Fine. You know what? I don't have to tell you, because you've already thought it out, and you've already come to the same conclusion, haven't you?

Maxie: Spinelli, are you okay?

Inspector Rayner: Step back, please.

Maxie: He's not a criminal. You have to let him go. You can't do this. Diane, tell them he's innocent.

Inspector Rayner: Miss, you're interfering with a federal investigation.

Maxie: I'm not just going to stand here and let you guys lock up my friend.

Mac: Maxie, let it go.

Inspector Rayner: Mr. Morgan, we need a private moment.

Diane: Not without benefit of counsel.

Inspector Rayner: Come if you will, but it will be better for Mr. Spinelli if your client confers with me alone.

Diane: I don't --

Jason: It's okay.

Maxie: Spinelli, it's going to be okay.

Spinelli: I figure optimism is completely mistaken.

Maxie: No, no, no, but Diane is here, and she's the best attorney around. And Jason promised that he was going to fix it.

Spinelli: Even Stone Cold cannot sway the federal ones. I'm scared.

Inspector Rayner: Have a seat.

Jason: You arrested Spinelli to get to me.

Inspector Rayner: That's right. And make no mistake, Damian Spinelli's freedom, and quite possibly his life, are on the line unless you do exactly as we say.
