Patrick: Call O.R. 2. Tell them to stop the surgeon. Do not let Matt operate on that patient under any circumstance.

Monica: This patient is just minutes away from going into v-tach. Did lab bring the blood up yet?

Leyla: They said it's on its way.

Monica: Good.

Matt: Are we good?

Man: Good to go.

Matt: Scalpel.

[Baby crying]

Monica: Hold please.

Matt: Bovie.

Monica's voice: Leyla, has he gotten at least a liter in?

Leyla's voice: I'll check.

Matt's voice: Cyndy, I'm really going to need you to follow with suction. I have a feeling it's going to be a mess in there. And I'm going to need as much visibility as possible.

Monica's voice: [Indistinct]

[Baby crying]

Leyla's voice: Dr. Quartermaine, the blood came up.

Monica's voice: Oh, good. Hang the first bag, and pour it in. He's going to need every drop he can get.

Matt's voice: Well, I think I found the problem. Yeah, his stomach is severely distended. I'm going in. Scalpel.

Matt's voice: Heads up. We got a bleeder. Suction.

Monica's voice: Elizabeth, peons.

Matt's voice: There's so much blood. I cannot see a thing. No, more, more. Below, below. Yes. Okay, I think I see the bleeder. Something is wrong here.

[Indistinct chatter]

[All exclaim]

Patrick: Stop! Matt, no! Get out of the room, Matt! Get out, get out, get out of the room! No! Matt!

[Overlapping yelling]

Patrick: No! Get out of the room! No!

Patrick: I'm a neurosurgeon, okay? I'm trained to stay detached, and a lot of people might say, my wife being one of them, that I'm almost too good at it. Robin would ream me out on a regular basis for being unfeeling, for treating patients as projects and not people, and I would always explain in my own condescending way that when you get emotionally involved, you can't make effective decisions, because you care too much about the outcome, about who lives or dies, emotionally speaking, and that's what I was trying to do when I showed up to work that day. I was trying to stay detached, but I couldn't stop thinking about my -- I couldn't stop thinking about my family.

Patrick: Hey. What do we got?

Epiphany: Are we keeping you up?

Patrick: No, it's just. Well, Emma’s sleeping four hours a night, which is great, but she's still only sleeping four hours a night.

Epiphany: And here you are yawning, making a big deal out of nothing. I'm sure that Robin is the one that's up with that baby at night.

Patrick: Actually, we're both pretty slammed right now.

Epiphany: Mm-hmm.

Patrick: Hey, Emma’s my baby too, especially at 3:00 in the morning.

Epiphany: You talk a good game. I'll give you that.

Leyla: I think it's rather sweet.

Patrick: Oh, that I'm sleep deprived? Thanks a lot.

Leyla: No, that the doctor who prided himself on never making a commitment has turned out to be such a wonderful father.

Patrick: Yeah, well, it's early in the game.

Leyla: Ah, you're doing just fine.

Epiphany: Did you happen to watch the news while you were up feeding little Miss Emma in the wee hours?

Patrick: Yes, I know there is a storm coming in.

Epiphany: And that means that we are going to be up against it for at least the next 24 hours in the E.R., so I'm going to ask the doctors to stick around until the blizzard's over.

Patrick: No, hey, no, not this time. I'll be on my beeper.

Epiphany: Nurse Mir, will you please post the emergency overtime procedures in the break room and the locker room? I need all the nurses and support staff to stick around until the blizzard's over, especially since the doctors are refusing to cooperate.

Leyla: Yes, Nurse Johnson.

Epiphany: Falling asleep on the job, Dr. Drake?

Patrick: No, just thinking about Emma’s mom.

[Knock on door]

Robin: One second!

[Knocking continues]

Elizabeth’s voice: Robin?

Robin: Coming.

Robin: Hi.

Elizabeth: Hello, welcome to the neighborhood.

Robin: You did not bring me a casserole.

Elizabeth: I couldn't help myself, and now we are officially neighbors.

Robin: You are hands-down the most thoughtful person that I know.

Elizabeth: I am just so excited to have a friend living close by, and I know how stressful it is living with a baby, so I thought you might be a little overwhelmed.

Robin: Oh, are you kidding me? I am so excited to be out of that tiny little apartment.

Elizabeth: I'm sure Emma is, too.

Robin: Yeah, yeah, yeah, she'll be -- you know. Once everything is all put together and done, everything will be perfect.

Carly: I have a confession to make.

Jax: You do?

Carly: I knew that would get your attention.

Jax: Am I that easy?

Carly: No, I can safely say, Mr. Jacks, you are definitely not easy.

Jax: And you're a walk in the park?

Carly: I am. What are you working on?

Jax: Oh, it's just the deal in Hong Kong, helping Lady Jane close it, putting out some fires. It's nothing serious.

Carly: I actually do have a confession to make. I have to steal Dana and Chip tonight for Michael’s benefit, which means the Metro Court has to go without their two best chefs.

Jax: Wow, well, I mean, you own the hotel, too. You don't have to ask me.

Carly: They're going to want to bring the top three servers. That means you're going to have to call in temps.

Jax: No, it's fine. If this benefit helps the Michael Corinthos Foundation get up and running, we should do everything we can, right?

Carly: It's off to a good start, and if the weather holds up, we should be fine.

Jax: You okay?

Carly: Yeah, yeah. Michael loved snow.

Jax: Yeah.

Carly: I was just thinking how he said the bigger the snow storm, the better. Don't know why that popped in my head.

Jax: Hey. I'm proud of you, you know that?

Carly: Thanks.

Jax: It can't be easy putting this benefit together.

Carly: You know what's funny? That when Michael was here with us, I wouldn't let him anywhere near the Quartermaines, and now I'm hitting them up for money.

Jax: Oh, it's fine. You know, they're the Quartermaines. They're used to this kind of behavior with family, you know.

Carly: I should have let him be part of their lives.

Jax: You made the best decision you could at the time, just like you are now. I mean, you're turning your grief into something positive, and that's great, really. I wasn't supposed to tell you this, but all of the restaurant staff asked if they could work the benefit.

Carly: Really?

Jax: Yes, really. I told them thank you. Of course that -- you know, that you were organizing the details. They're pooling tips to make a donation.

Carly: Out of all the donations you brought in, that one means the most.

Jax: You're welcome.

Carly: Now I have something I have to tell you, and I really don't want to spoil this, you know, mood, but --

Jax: Okay, I'm listening.

Carly: Sonny called, and he wants me to come over so we can discuss some of the details of the benefit. Is that going to be a problem for you?

Jax: What if I said yes?

Spinelli: Gracious thanks to the low-browed one.

Sonny: What'd you call him?

Spinelli: Oh, apologies. Yes, that was abrasive and unnecessary, but thank you to Mr. Sir for his willingness to take the meeting, and along the same lines, grateful thanks to Vixenella for -- if she's here, for passing along my urgent request, and now the Jackal shall get to the objective of his --

Sonny: Okay, you know what? I've told you this a lot. Just can you -- seriously, can you speak clearly, briefly, then leave?

Spinelli: Would that I could.

Sonny: Okay, try. Just try real hard, all right?

Spinelli: You know, while the Jackal has been driven from these premises on many occasion and therefore does not want to incur any more wrath from Mr. Sir's direction, although that does seem inevitable at this point --

Sonny: Okay, that's not brief, that's not clear, and that's wasting my time.

Spinelli: Um, uh -- the Jackal is -- the grasshopper's greatly concerned about his stone cold master's general well-being.

Sonny: I don't want to hear about insects or anybody's masters.

Spinelli: I got Jason in big trouble with the FBI.

Carly: Well, if you're uncomfortable with me going to see Sonny, I can make other arrangements.

Jax: Oh, I assume this meeting is about the benefit. I mean, not that I mean to interrogate you.

Carly: No, not at all. Yes, it's about the benefit.

Jax: And it makes it easier to see him in person? Is that what you're saying?

Carly: It would be easy to deal with it in person, but not if it's going to cause problems for you and me.

Jax: No, it won't. [Jax stammers] No, it won't.

Carly: Are you sure?

Jax: Yeah.

Carly: 'Cause I don't mean to be rude or -- it's just this whole 180 thing has been a little --

Jax: You mean, all of my 180's?

Carly: Yeah, your 180.

Jax: Yeah, I'm sick of those, too.

[Carly laughs]

Jax: I must have driven you crazy with those 180's.

Carly: That's okay. We're here.

Jax: Right.

Carly: Yeah. So the Hong Kong deal -- what's going on with it?

Jax: Oh, they were just slowing everything down for Lady Jane. It's really starting to piss me off.

Carly: Really?

Jax: Yeah.

Carly: Well, last time you got mad, you bought an entire conglomerate and sold it off in pieces.

Jax: And I didn't have any more problems with those guys, did I?

Carly: No, you didn't.

Jax: No.

Carly: Well, do you need my help?

Jax: No, no, you go deal with Sonny and the benefit. I'm fine.

Carly: Are you sure?

Jax: Yeah, I'm sure of it. I can't police your life. You know, you have to make your own decisions.

Carly: I really appreciate that.

Jax: Yeah, and I appreciate your honesty, really. I hope that this is the first of many benefits for Michael and to help other kids with head trauma.

Carly: We're being really polite and nice to each other.

Jax: Well, it beats the alternative.

Carly: Mm-hmm, it does. It definitely does. Good luck with the deal.

Jax: Good luck with Sonny.

Carly: Okay.

Jax: Okay. I'll see you.

Carly: All right.

Jason: Canadian border? Where? You sure it's the Equinox truck? Okay, any I.D. on the hijackers? No, listen, if it's Sonny's people, I'm going to deal with it. We need to figure out who the hijackers are.

[Knock on door]

Jason: Bernie, it's a semi. It's not going to be that easy to hide. Can you just get our men out looking for the truck and find the truck? Okay, I'm going to call you back. Stay in touch.

Maxie: I know Spinelli's not here. I came to see you.

Jason: You shouldn't be here either.

Maxie: You know, you say that every time, but here I am, just the same, and I think you're glad, even though you won't admit it, because I came here to talk to you about Spinelli. He's upset. He can't stop thinking about that deal you made with the FBI, not that there officially is a deal, but something obviously went on, and he thinks he let you down.

Jason: Well, he didn't, 'cause Spinelli was following my orders. That makes me responsible.

Maxie: That's why you saved him, right? I mean, speaking for myself, I'm very grateful, but also selfish. Spinelli's the most generous person I know, and he feels like he ruined your life. Do you always have to be so silent? It's not very reassuring.

Jason: What do you want?

Maxie: I understand that communication isn't exactly your strong point, but Spinelli is beside himself. He doesn't understand why you wouldn't tell him about the deal.

Jason: It doesn't matter if he understands or not, Maxie.

Maxie: But he hero-worships you, and he thinks you're mad at him.

Jason: You know, I'm the reason that Spinelli got involved in illegal activities in the first place.

Maxie: That is not true. When you found him, he was working for Alcazar. Spinelli thought of this thing as a big computer game from the very beginning, but now he understands how wrong it is, and he feels like you're being punished for his mistake. I am worried he's going to do something stupid.

Jason: Like what?

Maxie: It's the Jackal. Anything is possible.

Jason: Well, there's nothing I can do about that.

Maxie: Yes, there is. You can tell me what the deal is. What kind of deal did you make with the FBI to let Spinelli go?

Jason: None of your business.

Spinelli: The Jackal was arrested, handcuffed, and detained by the feds, who accused him of such crimes as treason and breaches of national security, dreadful accusations and true, even provable because the Jackal allowed his firewalls, both personal and virtual, to be breached.

Sonny: Okay, you know what? You talk way too much to the wrong people.

Spinelli: Person. Winnifred, yes.

Sonny: Winnifred? You let yourself get busted by a fed named Winnifred?

Spinelli: Aka, the priestess. It is true.

Sonny: Don't talk to me about women priests. Go on.

Spinelli: Okay, whilst in the custody of the federal ones, the Jackal was threatened with lifetimes of harsh imprisonment and even the death penalty. The brusque lady of justice could do nothing. The devoted D.A. stepped aside. All was lost until Stone Cold arrived.

Sonny: And let me guess. Alexis and Diane showed up, right? They couldn't do anything, so then Jason showed up. Something like that?

Spinelli: Right.

Sonny: I'm starting to understand you a little bit.

Spinelli: So he was briefly sequestered with the leader of the federal ones, and then with no warning, all charges against the Jackal were dropped, and he was set free. Now, although Stone Cold refuses to explain what happened, I am certain that some sort of unholy bargain was struck, and I fear for Stone Cold's safety and his honor.

Sonny: Did Jason tell you to come talk to me?

Spinelli: No, he did not. In fact, he beseeched me to remain silent.

Sonny: And you came here anyway? What are you -- what's wrong with you? I mean, you think Jason told you to keep silent for no reason?

Spinelli: But in the spirit of honor and friendship, I wanted to be -- I wanted to do something.

Sonny: Honor? If you honored him, you would have kept your mouth shut, and as far as friendship, I mean, the fact that you guys are like friends is beyond me.

Spinelli: I just -- I just wanted to help.

Sonny: Oh, I -- I -- I know. I know. So what you need to do is you need to honor what he wants, right? Keep your mouth shut.

Spinelli: But he wouldn't tell me the terms of the deal.

Sonny: Why would he? You'd be blabbing it all over the place. Now he saved your life. Be grateful. Respect his wishes. And just one more thing. Just do me a favor. Find yourself another line of work, okay? 'Cause you're way too weird for this business. Get out.

Robin: Okay, so I want to put the lamps over here. And I have to figure out, somehow, how to plug them in. And the boxes should be relabeled because I have no idea what's inside of them. And just finish stacking those shelves here.

Elizabeth: Okay, relabel boxes. Got it. You know, you're getting quite a list going on here. I'm sure you're going to enjoy presenting it to Patrick when he gets home, the coward.

Robin: He had rounds.

Elizabeth: Whatever. It's not an excuse.

Robin: You know, he actually said that he would take the day off to help me, but I said that I could handle it. Maybe I was a tad overconfident.

Elizabeth: Hey, don't worry about it. You've got this list. You've got some mac and cheese in the fridge, which is always my favorite comfort food when I'm feeling overwhelmed.

Robin: There's that word again.

Elizabeth: Okay, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I won't say it again.

Robin: You know, have you been talking to Patrick or something?

Elizabeth: About being overwhelmed? No. But I did give him grief for sticking Emma in a closet and calling it a nursery.

Robin: Well, that was mostly my fault, I'm afraid. But we'll have a lot more room here, eventually.

Elizabeth: Once you get a plan, everything will move a lot quicker.

Robin: I mean, I really -- I can't believe we crammed all this stuff into that tiny little apartment. Oh, put on the list find a place for the stroller and the baby travel gear.

Elizabeth: Got it.

Robin: I'm sure I'm going to have to put some built-ins in Emma’s, and --

Elizabeth: Okay, just focus on one room at a time.

Robin: Okay, where should we start then?

Elizabeth: Let's take care of these books. What do you want to do with these books?

Robin: That's good. I always feel better when my books are in order.

Elizabeth: Okay, well, I'll bring them over and you organize them.

Robin: Okay.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Robin: Sounds good.

Elizabeth: Here, start with these.

[Emma crying]

Elizabeth: Aw, it sounds like somebody's hungry.

Robin: Uh, you know, you're here. Do you mind feeding her for me?

Elizabeth: Are you serious? That's the best part. You don't want to do it?

Robin: You know, come to think of it, there's so many -- I really should -- I should run some errands. And her bottle's in the fridge. Just put it in the microwave for a couple of seconds, shake it up, and then put it back in for 10 more.

Elizabeth: Well, okay, but, you know, Robin, she doesn't really know me that well. Maybe you should just stick around and make sure she's comfortable.

Robin: Oh, she'll be fine with you. I'll be back soon.

Elizabeth: Okay.

[Emma crying]

Maxie: You obviously don't understand how traumatized Spinelli is, but how would you? You never pay attention to his feelings. I'm worried. Do you remember when he went after the Russians with that gun and all of the other stupid things he did to try and prove himself to you?

Jason: He's past that now.

Maxie: I'm not so sure. But I think if you talk to him about what's going on with you, he might calm down.

Jason: Just let me say this. Spinelli is free. He was going to go to prison for a long time. Do you think he's the type of guy who would do well in prison? All charges have been dropped. That's all anyone needs to worry about.

Maxie: But why? What did you do? Spinelli was already in a terrible place when those FBI guys arrested him. We had a really bad fight. I think maybe I mentioned that to you. I said all these horrible hurtful things to him, but what made it worse is I was just trying to keep him away from Winnifred. Not that I knew she was a fed, but I thought is was very weird how she was following him around all the time, and -- I slept with him.

Jason: That doesn't even make any sense.

Maxie: It does if you care about how Spinelli feels. That night we spent together was so sweet and beautiful. And then when he found out I had an ulterior motive, we had an even bigger fight. He was really, really upset, and I told him how he was a geek and a nerd and no one would ever want to be with him, even though that's not true. My point is, it is possible to hurt Spinelli's feelings when you're trying to help him. Especially when you're trying to help him.

Jason: Just stop, please. What I did to get Spinelli released was my choice. I'm not going to discuss that with Spinelli, and I'm definitely not going to discuss it with you.

Maxie: But Spinelli feels like he really messed up. He feels like you're paying the price.

Jason: He needs you. That's what he needs right now. So don't let him down. Don't get mad at him and don't sleep with him unless you mean it. Just be his best friend. You guys don't think about the FBI stuff anymore. Both of you, stop.

Maxie: In other words, don't let this awful deal be made in vain?

Jason: Yeah, please. Because if you calm down, he's going to calm down. You just pay attention to him, make sure he doesn't do anything stupid. If he starts obsessing about the deal, you tell him not to worry. That I'm going to do whatever it takes to keep him safe.

Carly: What happened to Max and Milo?

Claudia: Why is that any of your business?

Carly: Sonny would never let you fire them.

Claudia: I'm busy.

Carly: Doing what?

Claudia: I live here.

Carly: Playing on your computer? Doing some online --

Claudia: Hey, you know what? Don't touch my stuff in my house.

Carly: It's not going to be your house much longer.

Sonny: Hey, Carly.

Carly: Hey.

Sonny: Thanks for coming by. I know it's a tough day.

Claudia: Oh, yeah, Carly’s got a lot on her mind. Starting with figuring out a way to move me out of here so she can get back together with you.

Carly: It will be a cold day in hell before I ask Claudia Zacchara's permission to come in this house. But if that's what you want, that's fine. We can handle this at the Metro Court over lunch. We can just do it via e-mail. I can't handle a fight today, Sonny. I just can't do it.

Claudia: Why, what's today?

Sonny: Claudia. Carly comes as she pleases any time she wants. She's part of my life. Get it?

Claudia: Sure, just like Kate, everybody else in town, apparently. Let's just be clear. Carly's first loyalty is not to you. It's to your biggest enemy -- Jason.

Carly: Sonny, Jason's not your enemy. Right? This is where you say, "No, Carly, he's not. That as grim as things seem, we will eventually be able to work things out."

Sonny: I --

Carly: You cannot be buying into what the hell she's saying.

Sonny: I didn't ask you over here, okay, to discuss business.

Carly: Okay, fair enough. Fair enough. I will be happy when she's out of this house.

Sonny: Are going to go over the guest list?

Carly: Yes, yes, consider the subject officially changed. Here, this is the guest list. The Quartermaines are coming. Jax is going to be there. Nikolas Cassadine is going to be there.

Sonny: What about Jason?

Carly: Jason doesn't like cocktail parties, and you know that. Here, there's the official copy right there. Do you want me to invite him?

Sonny: Well, it's up to you. "Alexis Davis, Jasper --"

Carly: You know, this might be a good time for you and Jason to remember Michael and the way we all used to be.

Sonny: Those days are long gone.

Carly: The memories aren't gone. And this might be a good chance for you and Jason to try and work things out instead of tearing each other apart.

Maxie: Clarice, stop calling here. Kate isn't here now. She wasn't here five minutes ago. Well, I don't care what the art director said. Kate wants to lead with the fall silks. No, she pulled the story on the sample sales. Because most of our readers shop online. No. No. Yes. Clarice, I have to go, okay? No, this is me hanging up the phone. Wait, one more thing. How's your story comparing the stock market to skirt length coming along? That's hilarious. Of course you started. Kate wants to see the finished product by 5:00 this afternoon. What do you mean you had no idea? I was standing right there when she told you. Do you need me to cover for you, because I'm sure I could think of something. Well, then I suggest you hurry. Good-bye, Clarice.

Matt: That was very impressive. Whoever Clarice is, she must be hyperventilating by now.

Maxie: I am busy.

Matt: You're very good.

Maxie: Do I come charging into your O.R. when you're trying to work?

Matt: So, I had a really good time at the wedding. I assume that you did, too. So, I was wondering what you were doing this Saturday night.

Maxie: I'm busy.

Matt: Meaning?

Maxie: Meaning, has it really been that long since a woman told you "no"?

Matt: Yes, actually, now that you mention it. Oh, there was that one girl in fourth grade. I think her name was Susie Beecham. But I was pulling her pigtails at the time, so --

Maxie: That poor girl. She has no idea what she missed out on.

Matt: You want to find out?

Maxie: I'm not interested.

Matt: Sure you are. Unless you're actually serious about dating Spinelli.

Patrick: Keep pushing fluids in Mr. Bishop and set him up with some P.T. I want him moving around more than he is. Let me know if there's any change with the cranial bleed in 14. I'll be on my pager or obviously you can call me.

Epiphany: I need my doctors here in the hospital, not stuck out in the blizzard.

Patrick: We just moved into our new house. There's so many boxes to unpack.

Epiphany: Your new house is halfway across town, and it's not a couple of blocks away anymore. That means it's going to take you that much longer to get back here when the blizzard starts.

Patrick: How did you know that we moved across town?

Epiphany: It's my job to keep track of all of the doctors in this hospital and make sure that we're adequately covered for every emergency.

Patrick: Yeah, but if you could see how many boxes we have, I really need to get home.

Epiphany: Look, I'm sure that Dr. Scorpio would be very happy to unpack on her own and put things where she wants them. I'm sure that she would love for you to stay here so she can unpack in peace.

Patrick: Yeah, I don't think so.

Epiphany: Is there a problem?

Patrick: No, not really. It's just this whole experience has been a lot, especially for Robin. You know, she's recovering from her C-section, she had a baby, we got married, we just moved into a new house --

Epiphany: Go home.

Patrick: Okay, but what about the blizzard --

Epiphany: We'll manage, we'll manage.

Patrick: I don't know whether to be grateful or suspicious.

Epiphany: I've been working with you for a while now, Dr. Drake. And I know that you wouldn't be going home when you know I need you if you weren't really worried.

Patrick: Thank you. Let me know.

[Knock at door]

Robin: Hi.

Jason: Hey.

Robin: I know, I know. I should have called.

Jason: Are you okay?

Robin: Yes, yes, I'm good. Amazingly good. Are you in the middle of something?

Jason: No, come in.

Robin: It's good to see you.

Jason: You, too.

Robin: We barely crossed paths since before the wedding.

Jason: It's probably just not safe, you know, for you to be here.

Robin: Oh, come on. Anyway, Patrick and I, we moved across town, much further away, so I just wanted to make sure you had our address.

Jason: Okay.

Robin: Can I?

Jason: Yeah, yeah.

Robin: And while I was unpacking, I was going through all of my stuff, and I found some pictures of Emma, and I realized you've never even seen her.

Jason: I'm just -- I'm so glad she's part of your life. Wow.

Robin: Isn't she cute?

Jason: She is beautiful. That's great.

Robin: So, what do you think? Do you think she looks more like Patrick or more like me?

Jason: Uh, I think she looks like a baby. A happy and healthy baby.

Robin: Yeah, she is, she is. You know, most of the time. And I try to be a happy, healthy mom, but I don't -- I don't know. I'm sorry, I just -- I had nobody else to talk to and -- what was is like when Carly had postpartum depression?

Robin: Thank you.

Jason: I'm not sure Carly would want me to say anything, but --

Robin: It's not really about Carly. It's about her situation.

Jason: Yeah.

Robin: When did she realize that there was a problem?

Jason: When she was afraid to touch Michael.

Robin: And that happened right when he was born?

Jason: Yeah. I mean, Michael was really sick, and Carly was sick, and she didn't really get a chance to hold Michael. But, you know, she still -- she wanted to connect with him, you know, to try to at least touch him. So, I took her down to the nursery, and Michael was right there in the incubator, and I just remember she really tried. She did try to do it, but she couldn't, and she panicked and I had to take her back up to her room.

Robin: Carly's always been a problematic mother.

Jason: A couple days later, she came to me and she said, "I got to get out of here. I've got to leave Port Charles. You've got to give me money so I can get out of here."

Robin: Yeah, that's right, and she abandoned her baby.

Jason: Right, but she promised she'd come back, and that's exactly what Carly did, and no matter how much she tried to make herself touch him, she could not do it because she was afraid that she was going to do something wrong. You know? Mess him up somehow. But with all the other crazy stuff Carly had going on in her life, it's just --

Robin: Well, you know, I mean, I'm nothing like Carly. I never have been. I don't have any issues with holding Emma. I certainly would never abandon her.

Jason: Yeah, you've been great with babies. I mean, you taught me how to deal with Michael, remember?

Robin: Yeah, that was pretty simple back then when we lived in that little cottage together.

Jason: Robin.

Robin: What?

Jason: You have your own child. I mean, you have a great life, and Emma is so lucky to have you for a mother.

Robin: Thanks for saying that. I really needed to hear that.

Jason: Why are you so upset about this?

Robin: Well, because Patrick suggested that, you know, that there's something wrong, I have some problem with being a mother, and that I just don't want to admit it.

Jason: But why would he even suggest that?

Robin: Because he's a perfectionist. He likes to worry, you know, and we're both doctors. So, if there's a glitch, we just slap a diagnosis on it.

Jason: Are you, you know, having problems with Emma?

Robin: You know, I think we all need to just relax. I needed to talk to you. I feel better now.

Jason: Well, hold on. I don't even know anything about postpartum depression, except for what Carly went through, but I know it is for real and you can get help, you know? So, if you think there's a problem --

Robin: Well, there's no -- no, because there's not a problem.

Jason: Well, there's nothing wrong with asking for help. You know that, right?

Robin: Which is exactly what I did, and I appreciate you talking to me about it. And thank you. I really do -- I feel better.

Patrick: Hey, how's the most wonderful woman in the world doing?

Elizabeth: Well, I'm great. Thank you. But probably not the woman you had in mind.

Patrick: Hey.

Elizabeth: Hi.

Patrick: Wow, the place looks great.

Elizabeth: Thank you.

Patrick: Where's Robin? Is she in with Emma?

Elizabeth: No, she had to run a couple of errands.

Patrick: What kind of errands is she running?

Elizabeth: I don't know, but she asked me to stay with Emma, and I fed her and changed her and now she's sleeping. She is so sweet.

Patrick: Yeah, thanks. So, Robin didn't say where she was going?

Elizabeth: No, I think she just needed to get some fresh air. You know, with all this mess and the baby crying, and --

Patrick: Is that when she left, when Emma started crying?

Elizabeth: Yeah, but she just needed a break, that's all.

Maxie: What makes you think making fun of Spinelli will make me go out with you?

Matt: Well, who's making fun of Spinelli?

Maxie: You're acting like I would never date someone like him.

Matt: Have you? Yeah, where, you know, genuine pick you up at 7:00, get dressed up, you're out in public, everyone knows that he's with you sort of date?

Maxie: Yeah, Spinelli and I aren't really like that. He's better than any date I could ever have. He's kind and sweet and trustworthy, the best friend I've ever had.

Matt: Don't forget soul mate.

Maxie: Spinelli, hi.

Spinelli: I fear I'm interrupting something.

Matt: No, no, not at all. Maxie was just telling me how the two of you will never be more than just friends.

Elizabeth: These flowers are so beautiful. I just hope she sees them as soon as she walks in.

Patrick: Yeah, she loves having fresh-cut flowers. You know, I'm going to call her real fast here.

Elizabeth: No, no, no. Give her a few minutes. She's got enough going on without her feeling like you're checking up on her.

Patrick: I know. It's just going to start snowing anyway. I don't want her to get caught in the blizzard.

Elizabeth: She won't. She's going to come home and you guys can sit down and have a glass of wine and admire your brand new beautiful house and everything is going to be fine.

Patrick: Thanks for helping out with all of this.

Elizabeth: Here is Robin's list and where everything else goes. Please, please, please do not lose it.

Patrick: I won't. Don't worry.

Elizabeth: You know, it's an adjustment, having a baby in the house and Robin's just getting used to it.

Patrick: I hope you're right.

Elizabeth: I mean, you got a baby and you're moving and work and no time. I would still be living out of boxes if Emily hadn't helped me.

Patrick: It's going to be really nice having you close to us here.

Elizabeth: Well, thank you. And thank you for helping me through the whole Jake nightmare. I'm going to really enjoy having you as a neighbor, too.

Patrick: You know, maybe -- maybe I have been a little too worried. It's just there's something else going on and I don't really know how to handle it.

Elizabeth: Just because she's having a tough time doesn't mean there's something wrong with her. You know, every new mother is entitled to a few bad days.

Patrick: Yeah, it's just that I feel that it's more than that. I'm starting to get concerned about her state of mind.

Jason: Yeah, no, I'm on my way. I just -- you know, I'm trying to leave. I just got held up. So, I'll be right --

[Knock on door]

Jason: Now someone's at the door. So, listen -- just keep up the surveillance on the Zaccharas, but clear everything with me first.

Sonny: There's something you need to know. I know why you showed up at my house the other night. It had nothing to do with the shipment. Spinelli came by.

Jason: He came to your house?

Sonny: Yeah. He said the FBI busted him for treason and other serious crimes and he started babbling something about the death penalty. I don't understand half of what he says. But as they were hauling him off to prison, all the charges were dropped. You got him off, didn't you? Is that what happened?

Jason: Yeah.

Sonny: You made a deal to save Spinelli.

Jason: Yeah, that's right.

Sonny: You promised to give me up to the Feds, didn't you?
