Patrick: I was signing out, about to go home when I looked at the X-rays, and if I didn't have the impulse to look at the x-rays, I would have went home. I would have been with Robin and the baby. I would have been able to at least help them, but I guess it's all in the choices you make, isn't it? Even the ones you don't realize you're making. I looked at the X-rays. I didn't stop to think about Robin and Emma or the emergency. I grabbed the X-rays. I ran for the O.R. and, as it turns out, away from Robin and the baby. Is that --

Winnifred: Civilian casualties. Okay, well, technically speaking, they were all civilians, since at the time no one, you know, affected was an acting -- I'm sorry, sir. I didn't mean to ramble. Yes, Agent Rayner is currently in the process of interviewing Dr. Drake. Yes, sir, that is correct. Dr. Drake's wife, Dr. Robin Scorpio.

Patrick: Are you okay? I didn't mean to pressure you.

Robin: I'm sorry. I just don't think -- I just don't think I'm recovered enough to have things be the way they used to.

Patrick: I feel terrible. I shouldn't have pushed you.

Robin: No, you didn't. You didn't. I just -- I'm sorry. I want to make love. I just can't understand why you'd even want to touch me. I mean, I'm disgusting.

Patrick: Robin, hey, that's crazy.

Robin: I just cannot get back into shape, and --

Patrick: I think you're beautiful, all right? I love your body, every part of it.

Robin: Well, I don't. I don't feel sexy. I don't feel pretty. I can't believe I'm saying this out loud right now.

Patrick: No, hey, I need you to talk to me about this.

Robin: I don't know. I just -- I keep waiting to get back to my old self, you know, the way things are supposed to be. I'm starting to think that's never going to happen.

Patrick: It will happen. Hey. You know, me and you, we're so much alike. We take on more than we can handle and we expect perfection.

Robin: Yeah, but I don't ever remember feeling like this. I mean, I just don't know why it's taking me so long just to feel like myself again.

Patrick: Any other woman would have had a nervous breakdown by now, especially the last couple months. We got married, actually twice. You had major surgery, a difficult birth. We bought a house. We moved right into it. That's enough to put any woman off. I haven't even mentioned Emma, the biggest transition of all.

Robin: Right, and now I'll get to dump it all on you.

Patrick: No, I want you to talk to me about it. I need you to.

Robin: I don't know. I just didn't want to bring this energy into our new house. You know, this is supposed to be a new beginning for our family. Maybe I should talk to Kelly. I mean, she is my doctor. Maybe she has --

Patrick: I think that's a great idea.

[Knock at door]

Matt: Happy housewarming. Here's to new beginnings.

Coleman: Hi, my man.

Johnny: Hey.

Coleman: Pour you a beer?

Johnny: No, thanks. The budget's tight. I'm actually looking for work. You wouldn't need any help around here, would you?

Coleman: How desperate are you?

Johnny: Desperate enough to lie to my girl about telling her that I had a job, so now I need employment so she doesn't find out.

Coleman: Sorry, man, I can't help you out. I mean, you're not the only one in town that can't afford a beer. I already had to let go of one of my bartenders.

Johnny: Yeah, same story everywhere I go.

Coleman: With the economy in the dumpster, I was kind of hoping people would get depressed enough and start drinking again, you know?

Johnny: Yeah, give it time. Thanks anyway.

Coleman: You got it. Hey, dude. So, since you already lied to your gal once, maybe a second time around won't be so hard.

Johnny: What is the catch here?

Coleman: Well, I know of a little gig, but you got to keep it quiet, okay? I know a mechanic. He owns a chop shop. He'll pay you five bills for every car you bring in and a grand if you score an '09.

Johnny: I'm not desperate enough to take those kind of risks. Thanks.

Coleman: I got you. You don't want to upset your girl, right?

Johnny: Yes.

Coleman: That's love, man. It always costs you big time, though. Look, if you want to make a quick 40 bucks, I can help you out. It ain't pretty, but --

Johnny: Is it legal?

Coleman: My janitor called in sick, and I was about to clean the place up myself, but what the hell, man? It's Christmas.

Johnny: All right.

Spinelli: Why is the mob prince mopping floors?

Johnny: Spinelli, you cannot tell Lulu about this.

Lulu: What took you so long?

Carly: I'm sorry. I was in the lobby. You called, I came. Please tell me her royal highness is not here. I don't want to deal with her today.

Lulu: No, she's out to a business lunch.

Carly: Good. Okay, you sounded frantic.

Lulu: Yeah.

Carly: Is this about Johnny lying to you about something?

Lulu: Okay, you know how he's staying with me because he left his family?

Carly: One less Zacchara to deal with, the better.

Lulu: Well, the problem is he's still a Zacchara. Between his last name and his resume, which pretty much lists "son of a mobster" under job description, he can't get a job and he's trying so hard to be independent. So, yesterday he comes home and he tells me that he got this job working as an orderly at General Hospital.

Carly: Oh, okay.

Lulu: No, no, that's a lie. Epiphany told me he didn't get the job.

Carly: He was too embarrassed to tell you?

Lulu: Yeah, well, worse than that. He acted like he was going to work this morning.

Carly: He did?

Lulu: Yes.

Carly: Well, you know he's just lying to you for your sake. You know, he doesn't want you to think that he's a failure.

Lulu: But I've been trying to think about how I can call him out on it without totally crushing him.

Carly: I don't know. You may not want to confront him on this.

Lulu: Well, this is why I called you, okay? He needs incentive, you know. He needs to quit his "job" at the hospital for a better one. He needs to work for you here at the hotel.

Carly: Hmm.

Jax: Take a walk or something. Clear your head. I'll call you back as soon as I hear from them, okay? I love you, too. Bye.

Kate: Hey.

Jax: Hey.

Kate: Is your mom okay?

Jax: Yeah, it's fine. I'm helping her put together a deal in Hong Kong that's taken a turn for the worse, and she's just taking it a little too seriously.

Kate: Right, well, like her son.

Jax: Well, mom is usually a pretty savvy business woman. Just since Jerry disappeared -- well, he's most likely dead -- she's a little off her game.

Kate: I can only imagine. Actually, I wanted to ask you something about your brother. Is this a bad time?

Jax: No, not at all.

Kate: Do you know what kind of dealings he had with Claudia Zacchara?

Sam: The only way to get Spinelli out of this mess that he's in with the FBI is to get inside information on the Zaccharas and trade it to the feds.

Jason: Look, finding evidence against the Zaccharas, that's risky. But turning it over to the feds, that's absolute suicide.

Sam: You are planning on doing just that --

Jason: But this is Spinelli. What am I supposed to do? I've got to fix this.

Sam: Spinelli's my friend, too, Jason, and I helped bring him into this life. I want to help.

Johnny: The orderly job at GH was the last respectable position I had, and I couldn't even get that and I hated to lie to Lulu about that, you know?

Spinelli: Well, I fear that cleaning the sullied saloon is not a solution. I'm sure Lulu would understand if you would just disclose to her the lack of jobs available.

Johnny: Okay, Lulu's got enough to worry about, Spinelli. She already takes enough crap from her buds about being with me. The last thing I want for her is to have to lie about what I do. I'll find something.

Coleman: Player, what's up? Dude, I can't afford to pay both of you.

Spinelli: Oh, fear not. See, the Jackal does not work for filthy lucre. Instead he toils in gratis. I am forever indebted to the unlikely friend for shielding this shamed felon from a pack of Russian evildoers.

Coleman: Dude, you need to work on translating what comes out of your mouth, okay?

Johnny: Hey, consider the debt paid, Spinelli.

Spinelli: Perhaps the Jackal can offer more than this physical recompense. I'm not sure you're aware of the Jackal's financial status, but Stone Cold is a very generous employer and I would be more than happy to extend the hand of friendship... That hand being full of green.

Johnny: I can't take your money, Spinelli.

Spinelli: Well, then consider it a loan to be repaid when your fortunes improve.

Johnny: Look, it's a very generous offer, but it goes against what I'm doing, okay? I've got to make it on my own without that kind of help.

Lulu: I know exactly how to make this work, okay? I will call Johnny on his cell phone, have him meet me in the lobby, and then while we're down there, you can stage an argument with Marty about how the security division is understaffed and then you'll happen to see Johnny. You offer him a job, and he can "quit" his job at general hospital for a better one at the Metro Court.

Carly: Johnny working security?

Lulu: Yeah.

Carly: His father is Anthony Zacchara.

Lulu: Nobody has to know.

Carly: Until they look at his nametag. People know who Johnny is in this town. Look, I don't have a problem with it. I don't, but my guests may.

Lulu: Okay, so, now you see how hard it's been for Johnny. Nobody wants to hire a Zacchara, but you know him and you know he would be great at security.

Carly: Jax may not think so.

Lulu: Okay, fine, fine. If you think he would be better as a bartender or a desk clerk, that's fine. It would just be really important that Johnny feels like he's doing you some sort of favor by working here.

Carly: I'd love to help you, Lulu. I really would.

Lulu: But what?

Carly: What if the roles were reversed? How furious would you be if you were manipulated like that?

Jax: I made it a point not to get involved in my brother's dealings. So, I don't think he had any business with Claudia Zacchara as far as I know.

Kate: Then you're sure about that?

Jax: Well, I mean, it's Jerry. You know what he was like with the ladies. Maybe they knew each other, if you know what I'm saying. She's certainly his type, greedy, amoral, psychotic. It's not really helping much, is it?

Kate: No, actually, it is. Thank you.

Jax: So, there's something --

Kate: So --

Jax: No, go ahead.

Kate: No, no, no. You go ahead. I insist.

Jax: Well, there's only one way to really say this and that is to just say it.

Kate: Okay.

Jax: Carly and I have decided to give it another try. We've put the divorce on hold for awhile.

Kate: Wow. I'm really sorry to hear that, for your sake.

Jax: Kate, I thought you'd be happy for me. I mean, at least I'm trying to stick this one out. I'm not running, you know?

Kate: You know, Jax, I have seen you go through women like candy. I've known you a long time. I really did hope that you'd end up with a woman of quality.

Jax: Well, that is the plan.

Kate: You know you deserve better, right?

Jax: I see.

Kate: I mean it's really astonishing. It's astonishing to watch her work. You know, she trashed me and Sonny, and she's probably one of the reasons that Sonny married Claudia.

Jax: You blame Carly for that?

Kate: Why not, Jax? She blames me for everything. I mean, she made sure that you and I couldn't really have anything, right? And now she's just skipping merrily through the wreckage all the way back to you.

Jax: That's not how I see it.

Kate: Of course you don't, Jax. Of course you don't see it that way, because you won't let yourself see it that way, but you know what? It's fine. It's fine. Carly is your choice. It's your mistake to make, and I would never dream of standing in your way.

Patrick: I'm sorry. I wasn't expecting you or I would have --

Matt: It's a bad time. Sorry, it's fine. Here, you just take this and I will see you at the hospital --

Robin: No, no, no, Patrick, don't be silly. Invite your brother in.

Matt: Are you sure?

Robin: Yes.

Matt: Yeah?

Patrick: Yeah, okay, come on in.

Matt: I just wanted to stop by and check out the new place, not that I really spent much time at your old place, but that's what family does, right? You stop by. You check out the fire, the nice curtains and love what you've done with it. How am I doing here? You've got to help me out.

Patrick: Well, that really depends on what you brought us.

Matt: Right.

Robin: Oh.

Matt: It will go well with the fact that you live in suburbia. I did that wrapping job myself.

Robin: I see that.

Matt: It's not a backgammon set.

Robin: Oh, wow. It's a nice barbeque set.

Patrick: In the middle of winter.

Matt: You live in suburbia now. You're supposed to barbeque year-round.

Patrick: Well, a couple months of this and I'll be a grill master by summer.

Matt: Yeah, well, if you're as good with those tongs as you are with a laminectomy retractor, I would beg to differ.

Patrick: Careful. I use these things.

Matt: I'm scared.

Robin: Thank you. Thank you. That was very thoughtful of you.

Matt: Hey, no problem. Seriously, this place is great. I love it.

Maxie: Hello? I don't want to knock and risk waking the baby, so -- what is he doing here?

Matt: What am I doing here? What are you doing here? I don't know if you know this, but this is my brother, which I think outranks cousin.

Maxie: Robin is like a sister to me, and you barely even know Patrick, lucky for Patrick. I thought you were some hot shot doctor. How do you have all this time during the day to run around delivering barbeque utensils? Don't you work?

Matt: Oh, that's cute coming from you.

Robin: You guys, quit it, all right? You are both welcome here. And I seem to remember when Emma was born, at both of our weddings, the two of you managed to be nice to each other for about five minutes. So, if you tell me now that you were faking it, you will ruin all my fond memories.

Maxie: Hey, it's not my fault Dr. Hunter suddenly morphed back into a jerk.

Matt: She's just being rude because I one-upped her.

Maxie: Ha.

Matt: Yeah, I asked you out and instead of gracefully declining, she threw her friend Spinelli in my face.

Maxie: Your ego wouldn't take the answer "no."

Matt: See, I forced her to admit that she and Spinelli will only be friends, and for some weird reason it bothers her that I know that.

Maxie: The only thing that bothers me is you breathing air. I hope you guys enjoy your gifts. I'll be back when the conceited one isn't here.

[Door slams]

Matt: She likes me.

Olivia: Bad news?

Jax: No. No news, I'm afraid. I'm waiting for some important paperwork from Hong Kong and all I get is junk.

Olivia: Hong Kong?

Jax: Helping my mother close a business deal. I have no patience for incompetence.

Olivia: Well, fortunately I am here to very competently deliver you some good news. The tile work has all been completed on the plaza view rooms.

Jax: You serious?

Olivia: I'm serious. You have eight gorgeous luxury suites just waiting for your high end clientele to start checking in and enjoying the view of the plaza, which is good because you've been turning away business.

Jax: You know how long I've waited for that project to be done?

Olivia: I'm guessing a long time.

Jax: Long time, since we started rebuilding after the hostage crisis.

Olivia: Ah.

Jax: Thank you very much. You've made my day.

Olivia: Well, I'm just delivering the good news.

Jax: Don't be modest. This couldn't have happened without you. Hiring you was one of the best things I've ever done.

Olivia: If you do say so yourself.

Jax: Well, in case you haven't noticed, Ms. Falconeri, I'm the boss around here. What I say goes.

Nikolas: Oh, good. I don't have to track you down. I'm afraid that those plaza view rooms won't be opening after all.

Sam: We both want the same thing, to clear Spinelli of charges. So, we just have to get the FBI exactly what they want, which means if the Zaccharas hire me on as a pilot, then I can get all kinds of information on how their business runs --

Jason: They know we were together.

Sam: They believe you hate me.

Jason: You date Lucky Spencer. He's a cop. They're not going to let you anywhere near those shipments.

Sam: Sonny's in charge now.

Jason: Just stay away --

Sam: He knows how good I am at what I --

Jason: Sam, please stay away from Sonny.

Sam: Okay, fine, not a problem. No Sonny. I'll find another way in. All these guys want to hear is no questions asked anyway.

Jason: What about your mother? She's district attorney.

Sam: I was able to get the Russians to hire me, wasn't I, Jason? I know this isn't going to be easy. I already realize that, and I know it's going to take a minute for them to trust me. I'll stay beneath the radar.

Jason: Okay, listen, you're going to do what you want to do, okay. You don't have to answer to me, but if something goes wrong, you're the one who's going to explain it to Spinelli when he's sitting behind bars.

Nikolas: As a partner in this hotel, I could be sued if those rooms are found to be unsafe, and that's a liability I just can't afford.

Jax: Well, it's a good thing that you're not a full partner. You don't get to make those kind of decisions.

Olivia: Gentlemen, gentlemen. There's no need to worry here. We've passed all our safety inspections with flying colors.

Jax: Mr. Cassadine's not interested in safety inspections. He's here to make sure that the plaza view project is a failure. Isn't that right, Nikolas?

Olivia: With all due respect, sir, you might as well just burn a big stack of money in the parking lot because you're burning money if you don't make those rooms available to the guests, so --

Nikolas: I have my reasons.

Olivia: Well, as operations manager of this hotel, I can personally assure you that those luxury suites are good to go.

Nikolas: Nevertheless, I have an injunction to prevent it. We don't open that wing until I get my own inspection.

Jax: Okay, we'll make it happen.

Nikolas: No, that's fine, I already did. I took care of it. We're on the schedule. Unfortunately, the inspector can't squeeze us in until the end of spring, so --

Olivia: Well, we'll get another inspector.

Nikolas: But this is a man that I trust.

Jax: Ms. Falconeri, Mr. Cassadine won't be lifting the injunction unless I sell him back Spoon Island.

Carly: Okay, if you want Johnny to work here at the hotel, I can find work for him here. I can. I'll just talk to Jax about it.

Lulu: Oh, and then he would find out that I know he lied to me. And besides, he's too proud to take charity.

Carly: It's not charity. It's a job.

Lulu: He would see it that way. He would rather lie to me than admit he doesn't have a job.

Carly: Then let him find it on his own terms.

Lulu: In the worst job market in, like, a hundred years? I have to help him. I have to. I love him. It would not be that bad to give him a little boost, and he would never have to know.

Carly: But if he did know, he would hate it, which should tell you that it's a bad idea. I am telling you, manipulating Johnny is really wrong. I've done it a million times and it only caused me heartache.

Lulu: He feels like he has something to prove to me.

Carly: Then let him prove it.

Johnny: Spinelli, the whole reason I left my father's house was to get out of the mob. All that power and easy money? It's just not worth it.

Spinelli: So the reformed mob prince is saying that if he were to borrow funds from the jackal, funds whose origins are mob-related, that, in your thinking, the very act of borrowing would compromise your principals?

Johnny: Yeah, you got it.

Spinelli: Well, not to point out the obvious, but Stone Cold's methods vastly differ from that of your demented dad, so any money from the Jackal would, in fact, be untainted.

Johnny: Spinelli, look, it's a generous offer, and you're a good guy, but Jason is a mob enforcer. Your money comes directly from him. It pretty much defines tainted.

Spinelli: Yeah, but you can't deny that Stone Cold works by a code. I mean, yes, he is a -- a mob boss, but he's an honorable mob boss.

Johnny: Okay, Jason makes a living by breaking the law, he employs people who break the law, and he kills anyone who would get in his way. Look, Spinelli, it's all the same. If I'm going to take mob money, I might as well go back to my father. Would solve a lot of problems.

Spinelli: Listen, are -- are you suggesting that you might return to the ways of your sinister clan?

[Knock on door]

Ric: Fine, Jason, thanks. And you?

Jason: What do you want?

Ric: Oh, kill the attitude. It's not going to help you.

Jason: I don't need help.

Ric: Oh, you think? You're increasingly isolated, you overextended yourself with those damn Russians, and then you blew up Zacchara's shipment. Jason, you don't know how much trouble you've brought upon yourself, not to mention provoking a retaliation -- not that I'm threatening you.

Jason: You're a messenger, Ric, so deliver your message and go home.

Ric: Yes, you're right, I am here to deliver a message personally from Anthony Zacchara

Robin: I'm sorry you didn't get to see Emma.

Patrick: Yeah, when she's sleeping, we usually like to leave her that way, so --

Matt: Yeah, I'm surprised Maxie didn't wake her with that rant.

Robin: Oh, come on, be easy on her. Maxie's been through a lot in her life.

Matt: Well, and we all haven't?

Robin: It's just some people think that Maxie is just a pretty face, but she's more than that.

Matt: So because she's not a bimbo, I should keep my distance or something?

Patrick: No, Robin's not -- you're not saying that.

Robin: No, I'm not saying that. I'm just saying she's more vulnerable than you might think.

Matt: So I'm not good enough for her?

Robin: No. No, that's not what I'm saying.

Matt: Okay, all right, that's good. That's good, because I like Maxie, and she is so fixated on not going out with me, it's going to be fun to prove her wrong.

Patrick: So you're not going --

Robin: You're twisted.

Patrick: That's kind of, like, the challenge thing, you know? But all I think what we're saying is just proceed at your own risk. Don't want to get further than you think you're getting.

Matt: No, it's just casual. It's dinner, movie, whatever happens next. It's casual. There are patients who need my golden touch, so I'm going to get going. Great seeing you guys.

Patrick: Yeah.

Matt: Bro, take it easy.

Robin: Bye.

Matt: Sis.

Robin: Thanks for coming over.

Matt: Good seeing you. And tell Emma I'm sorry I missed her.

Robin: He is so your brother, it is stunning.

Patrick: Meaning what?

Robin: Meaning I'm sure he has many good qualities.

Patrick: Oh, you mean underneath all that ego?

Robin: Come on, admit it, he is so your former arrogant, skirt-chasing self.

Patrick: No, I'm taller.

Robin: Please do not encourage him to go after my cousin.

Patrick: You heard me. I said, "Proceed at your own risk."

Robin: Yeah, you might as well, you know, wave a red flag in front of a bull. Come on, he's going to mess with Maxie, she's going to fall apart, and then I'm going to have to pick up all the pieces.

Patrick: Okay, why are we discussing this? It's pretty obvious that Maxie hates Matt. Actually, it kind of reminds me of the way we were. Come to think of it, you couldn't resist me.

Johnny: My father uses me as his excuse for all the terrible things he does. The last thing I want to do is move back to that house. Of course, I don't really have much of a future in mopping floors anyway.

Spinelli: I have an idea of Newtonian brilliance. The ace of cyberspace will teach the reformed one the glories of computer science. Such knowledge can lead to a host of jobs from, yes, the mundane, but also the severely awesome.

Johnny: Okay, maybe I will take you up on that, Spinelli, sometime, but, I mean, I got to focus on getting a paycheck ASAP. I can't keep lying to Lulu about a job that I don't have.

Maxie: Spinelli! There you are! I don't see why we haven't -- hey! Lulu told me that you were working. I thought you got a job at the hospital?

Johnny: I lied. Hey, but, Maxie, you can't tell Lulu about this, okay?

Maxie: Yeah, whatever, but why would -- never mind. I lie all the time.

Johnny: Thanks, Maxie. I owe you.

Maxie: Whatever. Hey, Johnny, any lie you tell, no matter how necessary it seems at the moment, always potentially can come back and bite you on the butt.

Nikolas: I'll make this really simple for you -- I want my land back and I want the matter settled today.

Jax: Why are you suddenly in my face, making demands?

Nikolas: I'll give you 20% on top of what you paid for Spoon Island and then I lift the injunction. That's a generous offer, don't you think?

Jax: Let me think about that. Um, let's see. Hmm. You see, I bought Spoon Island as an investment property, to build a spa and resort, golf courses, condos along the side, you know, that sort of --

Nikolas: Right.

Jax: What I'm trying to get at, Nikolas, is that it's worth a hell of a lot more than 20%.

Nikolas: Well, it's more than just a plot of land to me, so you consider this fair warning. Sell me back my home or you can kiss that precious little wing of yours goodbye, and I won't stop there.

Olivia: Okay, okay, gentlemen --

Jax: You brought this on yourself when you walked in here when Carly was vulnerable and you helped yourself to this hotel, the same way you helped yourself to Courtney. You remember her, don't you?

Nikolas: Mm-hmm.

Olivia: All right, all right, this is not a street corner in Bensonhurst, okay? Gentlemen, there is no need to ruin your beautiful suits. I'm sure we can discuss this like rational human --

Nikolas: Discuss? There's nothing to discuss. You have fun waiting until next spring.

Olivia: Okay. Who's Courtney? Or do I even want to know?

Jax: He's an arrogant son of a bitch.

Olivia: All right, relax, Mr. Jacks. You have not been outmaneuvered yet.

Jax: Where did you get that?

Olivia: Right out of the arrogant son of a bitch's pocket.

Ric: Mr. Zacchara would like for you to understand that just because Sonny has a new position with the Zacchara organization, that does not guarantee your safety. If you'd like for me to dumb it down for you, whatever loyalty Sonny once had for you -- that's officially over. See, we're not obliged to keep the peace because you and Sonny were -- what did you call it once? Oh, yes -- close as brothers. Not so much anymore, huh?

Jason: You done?

Ric: No, I'm not. Any further interference in our organization will bring full-scale retaliation.

Jason: Now you're done.

Ric: I don't know, maybe you don't realize the hole that you're digging yourself, maybe you're just too proud to face the facts, but you cannot possibly compete with the Zaccharas now that Sonny's in with us.

Carly: What are you doing here? Bet it's not a social call.

Ric: I understand you're putting together a fundraiser for pediatric head injuries? Don't worry, I won't be there. But you will get a contribution.

Carly: I don't get it. How is it that Sonny can trust him but he can't trust you?

Olivia: Yes, I know you already set up an appointment with Mr. Cassadine, but I am actually calling right now at his behest to see if we could set up something a little bit earlier. Like tomorrow? Oh, lovely, yes.

Jax: Yes.

Olivia: Yes, of course, we'll be expecting you then. Yes, and Mr. Cassadine wanted to be very, very clear that you're to bill him personally for any inconvenience that this may have caused you. Yes, likewise. Thank you very much.

Jax: That is brilliant! Remind me to give you a bonus.

Olivia: We're not done yet.

Jax: Who are you calling now?

Olivia: Yes, is this the Cassadine residence? Yes, hello, I'm calling from the Metro Court hotel. It seems that one of our guests has turned in a cell phone -- never mind. Mr. Cassadine. You're looking for this.

Nikolas: Well, I just don't know how I could've dropped it.

Olivia: Well, no harm done. Oh, and by the way, it turns out that your inspector had an earlier slot available for an inspection -- tomorrow.

Jax: Isn't she wonderful? She only just started working here. I can't wait to see what she does with the Spoon Island spa project.

Nikolas: All I want is to hang on to my home. And that's what I'll do, by any means necessary.

Robin: All right. To our house.

Patrick: Cheers.

Robin: So what do you think of all of this, Doctor?

Patrick: Well, as soon as I start to have a panic attack, I think to myself, you know, we're building equity. It's a good investment.

Robin: Very romantic.

Patrick: Yes.

Robin: You know, should I be offended? Everyone keeps coming over here with decorating suggestions. I thought I had good taste.

Patrick: Oh, believe me, I remember when you pushed me into my first apartment, getting it furnished was the most important thing in the world.

Robin: Yeah, I was a little pushy. Sorry.

Patrick: Well, it just proved my point that you wanted me from day one.

Robin: I did not.

Patrick: Give me a break. You made it your business to drive me crazy. You fought with me every chance you had.

Robin: Yeah, I fought with you because you were obnoxious.

Patrick: You thought I was hot.

Robin: Yeah, I thought you were hot. And sexy.

Patrick: And?

Robin: And obnoxious.

Patrick: And even after we left the hospital and started dating, you still were playing all your little games.

Robin: I was not! I don't play games.

Patrick: You don't play -- all those little chick maneuvers I remember? Hmm. Then I realized you were just, what, terrified?

Robin: Yeah, so were you. Every time we got close, you started hitting on another woman. I can't remember the day when I realized that you were done being a dog and I was ready to trust you.

Patrick: Maybe it was after the hundredth time I proposed to you, finally believed me? Didn't know if I had another proposal left in me.

Robin: It's a good thing I said yes.

Patrick: I still remember the exact day that I knew that I loved you.

Robin: Really? Where was it?

Patrick: On the pier, the day I sliced my finger and was exposed to HIV.

Robin: Yeah, I followed you. I remember you let me see you cry. I thought you were really brave.

Patrick: You were the brave one.

Robin: Well, I was trying to understand what you were going through. I didn't know it was that early on in our relationship.

Patrick: Why do you think I put up with you for so long?

Robin: You did not put up with me, okay?

Patrick: Well --

Robin: You worshipped me.

Patrick: Oh. Well, that's true, I did, and I still do. Best thing that ever happened to me.

Robin: Me, too, you. Oh, my goodness. Do you realize what we just did?

Patrick: Oh, you mean having a whole conversation without mentioning diapers and baby bottles and sleep patterns? Yeah, it's been a while.

Robin: I know. It's good to have a little break from that.

Patrick: Yes, it is.

Robin: How did we get on that, anyway?

Patrick: Matt.

Robin: Hmm. Right, the junior pain in the ass.

Patrick: Oh, come on, there's still hope for him. He'll find someone that shows him how to love, what it all means, and all the other garbage will fall away and he'll realize what the most important thing in the world is.

Robin: I really love our house.

Patrick: I do, too.

Maxie: Of course, you can fit me in. I'm with "Crimson" magazine. I'll probably end up doing a write-up on your salon. Perfect. Thanks.

Lulu: What took you?

Maxie: What's it to you?

Lulu: You were supposed to be back. Clarice wants to talk to you.

Maxie: I have a life, Lulu, and you could've called me. Oh, shoot, I scuffed my shoes! Stupid gravel at Jake’s parking lot. I'm going to change them.

Lulu: What were you doing at Jake’s?

Maxie: Um, well, I went to hang out with Spinelli because he's looking for a new place to sit with his computer since Kelly’s and the coffee shop burned down, but he was really busy with --

Lulu: What? What, he was busy with what?

Johnny: Well?

Spinelli: Well -- the Wi-Fi connection is remarkably strong. But perhaps I shouldn't share with Mr. Coleman that my previous work locations both went up in flames.

Johnny: I can keep a secret.

Spinelli: And to that end, rest assured that fair Maximista will maintain the utmost discretion.

Johnny: What, Maxie?

Spinelli: Yes, she's well-known for her impulsive tendencies, but she is also trustworthy beyond reproach.

Johnny: Well, whatever happens, happens.

Spinelli: You seem rather sanguine.

Johnny: Just saying there are worse things that Lulu could know about me than lying to her about a job.

Spinelli: Wait a second. It is well-known that fair Lulu and her beloved are soul mates, inseparable.

Johnny: Okay, I'm not cheating on Lulu, if that's where you're going with this, Spinelli. I couldn't, I love her too much. And I hope she loves me back.

Spinelli: Oh, without question. Fair Lulu's attachment to you is deep and heartfelt.

Johnny: Yeah, well, there are things about me, things that I've done that she doesn't know about.

Spinelli: Every man has his inner demons.

Johnny: Yeah.

Spinelli: What kind of things?

Johnny: Things that she could never forgive me for, Spinelli. Look... You don't grow up in a mob family without doing things you regret.

Sam: Ric, are you waiting for Anthony Zacchara?

Ric: Why do you ask?

Sam: I -- I can't. Look, it's private, confidential.

Ric: There's nothing private or confidential when it comes to Anthony Zacchara. I know all of his dealings.

Sam: I'm looking for work.

Ric: Oh, television show didn't work out? Everybody figure out you're not anyone's hero?

Sam: I know the harbor. I can pilot any ship in any location.

Ric: A docking captain.

Sam: I am discrete. I don't ask any questions, and I know my way around necessary paperwork.

Ric: Yeah, you're a mobster's dream. Why don't you talk to Sonny about it? Or better yet, you can go to Jason. I'm sure he'd throw you a bone for old time's sake --

Sam: Jason is out of the question. So is Sonny for that matter.

Ric: Well, if you can't work for men that you've slept with, then why are you talking to me? Then again, that would probably leave out most of Port Charles and a good chunk of New York State, wouldn't it?

Sam: I want to work for Anthony Zacchara.

Anthony: Oh, I like the sound of that. What do you think you could do for me?

Jason: You don't have to worry about me and Sonny.

Carly: You still haven't told me what Ric was doing here.

Jason: I'm not going to drag you into the middle of this. I already told you that. Especially tonight.

Carly: Tonight could be a bridge for you and Sonny. Look, this foundation could help us all heal, Jason. Okay, fine. I won't talk about it. All right, so I think I have a great turnout for tonight, except I'm a little worried about the weather because they're calling for a blizzard. Can you believe that tonight of all nights they're calling for a blizzard? But that's okay. I am going to try to be positive. We're going to make tons of money tonight, and tomorrow we can be snug in our beds watching the snow fall.

Jason: This thing with the foundation, you know, and the benefit, I think it's great, but I have to ask. Are you doing this because you think somehow it might bring Michael back?
