Patrick: Bragg was admitted. He was in a multi-vehicle accident. He had a fractured leg and was showing symptoms of internal bleeding. We didn't have time to check the x-rays. I was going to do the surgery, but Matt volunteered to take it off my hands.
Agent Rayner: So you could go home?
Patrick: Yeah, so I could go home, because I was worried about my wife, but as it turns out, not worried enough. But you don't really want to hear about that, do you? You want to hear about Earl Bragg's surgery, but I'm really wondering what difference does it make at this point, because what happened was a lot worse than a crisis in the O.R.
Agent Rayner: But that's where it started.
Patrick: Yeah, it did start with six people trying to save a life. Six medical professionals doing their job, not knowing that the patient could kill them.
Winnifred: The benefit was organized by Carly Corinthos Jacks. The guest list is in her handwriting. Yes, sir, that is Corinthos, as in Sonny Corinthos. Well, she was definitely in the boardroom. Did you know that this benefit was to help kids with head injuries? It's so sad that they were trying to do something good when this happ -- sorry, Sir. Yes, I am going to forward that to you now. Well, Carly Corinthos Jacks is one of the few that we can absolutely confirm.
Robin: I will go check on Emma as soon as you tell me what you want.
Carly: I'm pulling together a benefit in honor of Michael. I'm trying to raise money for other kids with head injuries. Sonny wanted me to invite you. You know, I just -- I don't know. I just didn't think you'd want to go.
Carly: If you don't -- go check on her. I don't mind waiting.
Robin: When is it?
Carly: The benefit is tonight. It's in a few hours. I just assumed you wouldn't have wanted to go because of the baby.
Robin: Oh, really?
Robin: Well, life doesn't grind to a halt just because you have a child, and you should know that better than anyone. Anyway, you wouldn't even be here unless Sonny had asked you to invite me.
Carly: Sonny actually believes you love Michael. Plus, Sonny owes you. He would have never adopted Michael if you would have kept your mouth shut years ago.
Robin: Because I told the truth.
Carly: Whatever. If you don't go pick her up, I'm going to go pick her up.
Spinelli: The list of heinous cyber crimes committed by the Jackal is long and complex.
Agent Rayner: Stop, stop. Mr. Spinelli, do yourself and me a favor. Refer to any crimes you may or may not have committed as alleged. Refer to any incidents that may or may not contain criminal activity as hypothetical.
Spinelli: Point taken. Gracious thanks. Given the magnitude and, well, sheer number of hypothetical cyber crimes allegedly committed by the Jackal -- I mean, the federal ones did indeed seem determined to toss said Jackal into the federal pit of solitary confinement for years to come, but shortly after Stone cold, A.K.A. Jason Morgan, showed up, the Jackal was set free.
Agent Rayner: You should be relieved.
Spinelli: But see, I -- I am wingman to his captain. I am grasshopper to his master. So I mean, you see, Stone Cold has entered into an unholy alliance with the fearsome feds. I need to know the details.
Agent Rayner: No, you don't, which is not to admit that there is a deal.
Spinelli: Well, not to dispute your cautious and legally sound comment, there must be some arrangement. Stone cold has been forced to take dire and mysterious action, and well, frankly, I fear for his personal safety. And regardless, any such alliance is manifestly unjust because it was the Jackal and not Stone Cold who was the alleged perpetrator of these hypothetic cyber crimes, and Stone Cold should never suffer for my misdeeds, be them alleged or otherwise.
Agent Rayner: I'm in the middle of a situation here. If you have a point to make, you need to get to it.
Spinelli: Yes, I am the Jackal.
Agent Rayner: I am clear on that.
Spinelli: No, I -- I am the assassin -- alleged assassin of cyberspace. I rule the internet, even now.
Agent Rayner: I presume that you don't really grasp that what you're saying could annoy me enough to throw your butt in jail.
Spinelli: Okay, do not misunderstand me, fearsome federal one. The Jackal is at your command. I am offering my services, and I shall do your bidding.
Agent Rayner: In return for what? Wiping your slate clean? Dropping the charges against you?
Spinelli: No, if the Jackal must live the remainder of his years in federal confinement, so be it. But I will do anything, follow any order, if you will release Stone Cold from this grievous and potentially deadly alliance.
Agent Rayner: That isn't going to happen. You've served your purpose. You were leverage against Jason Morgan. Now I suggest that you leave before you say anything else that I can't pretend I didn't hear.
Spinelli: But Stone Cold will not reveal the nature of the alliance, and it is causing me great anguish --
Agent Rayner: Stay out of it, and don't talk to anybody about any so-called alliance. Don't screw up an arrangement good people worked a long time to make happen.
Spinelli: But I am deeply concerned about my friend --
Agent Rayner: You're a free man, Jackal. Go! Make better use of your time. Be grateful for your friends. Go! I have work to do.
Robin: So you're here to ask me to go to the benefit, even though the idea is killing you. Is that right?
Carly: You just rolled her out here in that thing?
Robin: She's fine.
Carly: You're not going to pick her up? I'm sure she wants you to pick her up.
Robin: I'm standing right next to her. What time does it start?
Carly: Five o'clock, but you don't have to come. I'm sure you don't want to get all glammed up. You're sleep-deprived. You're taking care of a baby. Your body probably doesn't even feel like your own. At least, that's how I felt.
Carly: No, I didn't mean it like that. I mean, you look fine, and Sonny will be very happy if you were there, and he'd be really happy to see the baby.
Robin: Well, you know, she'd probably cry the whole time.
Carly: So we could take her to the nursery. I could work something out, or you could bring her and carry her around. She'd be the center of attention.
Robin: Emma's really not that social.
Carly: If you pick her up, she'll stop fussing. Guaranteed.
Robin: She's fine where she is.
Carly: Can I pick her up?
Robin: You know what? Why not? Everyone else seems to be the expert these days.
Carly: Hi, there. Hi. Oh, look at you.
[Baby stops crying]
Carly: Hi, Emma. Hi, there. What you looking at? Wow. I am so happy to meet you. My name is Carly, and I'm so jealous of your mommy. You know why? Because she got to have a little girl, and I've always wanted a little girl. Yeah, that's right. A little girl that I could go shopping with and I could eat chocolate with and frozen pizza with. You know what you should do? You should have your mommy put those little stick-on bows in your hair. You would be so cute. She'd better hurry up and do it, because I have a feeling you're going to have opinions about that pretty soon, huh? [Laughs] Wow, your mom is so lucky. She's so lucky.
Matt: Hello again. Find that coffee shop I told you about?
Rebecca: Yeah, it was fine. Everybody kept talking about a better one that burned down a few weeks ago.
Matt: Yes, the one that was owned by Sonny Corinthos. Great espresso, a little mobbed-up.
Rebecca: Are you serious?
Matt: Yeah. Yeah, Port Charles can get a little dicey, but it's a nice town overall.
Rebecca: Yeah, well, we'll see if I end up here. Just turned in all my paperwork to H.R.
Matt: You need me to put in a good word for you?
Rebecca: Because you know so much about my skills and experience as an x-ray tech, yeah.
Matt: I pride myself on being a good judge of character.
Rebecca: So do I, and I'm obviously not the first woman you've ever hit on in an elevator.
Matt: Did you want to be the last?
Rebecca: Is this your floor?
Matt: You remembered, but you didn't answer my question.
Maxie: What are you doing here?
Spinelli: What is anyone doing anywhere, really?
Maxie: Have you been drinking?
Spinelli: No, though a soothing alcoholic beverage would be most welcome. The truth is, I'm running out of places with a strong wireless signal, without which the Jackal could not survive.
Maxie: If Jason threw you out, knowing how fragile you are --
Spinelli: No, no, no, no. He's been most kind, albeit more silent than usual.
Maxie: Hmm, he's freezing you out.
Spinelli: Indeed, and all attempts to uncover the price that Stone Cold paid for the Jackal's freedom have been met with silence or sharp rebuke.
Maxie: He yelled at you?
Spinelli: Well, it was -- it was well-warranted.
Maxie: I seriously doubt that.
Spinelli: He caught the Jackal hacking into the FBI.
Olivia: Yes, Mrs. Corinthos Jacks asked me to pick up the check from Mr. Corinthos, so I will have a messenger from the hotel bring it out to the hospital this afternoon. Yeah, Carly wants all the money in hand before the benefit actually begins. Okay, well, you are going to have to ask Mrs. Corinthos about that yourself. Well, shall I have her call you? Okay. Yes, we're all very concerned about the weather. Yeah, thank you. Thanks. Hey.
Olivia: What's up?
Kate: Did I just hear you say you're going to Sonny's?
Olivia: Yes, is that a problem?
Kate: No, no, it's fine. Just -- would you mind bringing this to him, please?
Olivia: Um, you want me to give Sonny a watch?
Kate: Yes, it was supposed to be my wedding gift to him. It just arrived, and I was going to have the concierge bring it, but well, if you're going there anyway...
Olivia: So it got lost in the mail, or what?
Kate: No, actually, a dear friend was making it for him and had some trouble getting the details right.
Olivia: Right. May I?
Olivia: Your good friend did a very good job. I think Sonny's going to love this. He may be a little concerned or curious about why you're not giving it to him yourself.
Kate: No, he won’t.
Olivia: What do I say if he asks? I say you were busy? You --
Kate: Olivia, he's not going to ask.
Olivia: Connie, it's a pretty nice watch. He may just --
Kate: Will you just bring him the watch? Look, it doesn't mean anything to me anymore. Neither does he.
Claudia: It's kind of funny, actually. I don't remember a time when I wasn't scared. Fear becomes part of you, and everything in your life is a reaction to it. Whatever it takes to survive.
Sonny: Yeah, I know the drill. I appreciate, you know, the position you're in, and you've stood up for your family, and now your father is changing the rules.
Claudia: He'd back down if you take Jason out. That would show him that you're ready to lead the Zaccharas, no matter what happens with John. And you and I are never going to love each other, but I can be useful to you, and if you do what my father asks, I might even be able to protect you.
Sonny: I know what's going on. You feel like -- that if your father turns against me, then he's going to turn against you, and you're going to be expendable.
Claudia: But once Jason's out of the picture --
Sonny: Okay, you don't talk to me about Jason. I married you in good faith, and I was hoping that we would get along, because I know how bad men have treated you in the past, and I felt that I could give you such a better life. But look how badly you've treated me.
Claudia: What are you talking about?
Sonny: What am I talking about? Practically sleeping with my brother under my nose? Going through my stuff? Secrets? For all I know, you and Anthony got something going, and you're going to slit my throat in the middle of the night.
Claudia: That's not what's happening here at all. But I stepped up, and I did what was necessary for my family, and I sure as hell hope that you're going to do the same.
Sonny: By taking out Jason.
Claudia: There's no other way.
Sonny: You know what? When you're going through my stuff -- you know what I mean -- what is it you're looking for? Because if you just tell me, we can work it out.
Claudia: You know what I've heard about you? That you're really paranoid. Obviously, it's true. I'm not looking for anything, Sonny. I'm just trying to make this place feel like home. I'm just trying to pretend for a minute that it's mine somehow. Some crazy way.
Sonny: Yeah, don't be too long, because, you know, the benefit.
Claudia: Aren't you going to ask where I'm going?
Sonny: Oh, I already know.
Claudia: You do?
Claudia: Well, I heard that you were smart, too.
Claudia: Don't mistake this. There's no way, whatever happens next, that I'm going to allow myself to end up as collateral damage.
Carly: There you go. Yeah, you're happy now, aren't you? You just wanted to be out here so you could chat. You wanted to be a part of the action, didn't you? I think she's going to be fine. She just needs to get some rest. I'm sure you could use some, too.
Robin: Well, I can't do that if I'm going to get ready for the benefit.
Carly: You're going?
Robin: Well, didn't -- yes. Yeah, I have been cooped up in this house for days.
Carly: I thought you guys just moved in.
Robin: Yeah, we did, obviously, but all I've been doing is moving, and I could use a night out. And I would like to support Sonny and Michael.
Carly: Okay. You know, I'm sure we're never really going to like each other, but I think it's wonderful that you have such a beautiful little girl.
Robin: Thank you. And I know I probably don't have to say this, but I wouldn't wish what happened to Michael on anyone, and I admire that you're turning it into something positive.
Carly: Thank you.
Robin: Carly. It's a weird question, but did you feel guilty about not spending time with Michael when he was born and when you had postpartum depression?
Carly: Where'd that come from?
Robin: Just wondering. Did you feel guilty that you didn't want to be with him?
Carly: No. I mean, I don't now, because postpartum is a medical condition. I mean, thank God Jason was around, because I couldn't have handled taking care of the baby on my own. But then, once I found out what was wrong, I was fine. Look, you know, I didn't always handle everything right with Michael, but you know, Michael knew that I loved him, and he knew Jason loved him, and he knew Sonny loved him, and a lot of people love Michael, which is why I'm having this benefit tonight. So Robin, if you decide to come, I think it would be nice if you and I could pretend to get along for Sonny and for Michael.
Robin: I think I can do that.
Carly: Great. Bye, Emma.
Olivia: Hey, hey, hey. Time to pay up, pal. You got your checkbook out already. Look at that.
Sonny: You doing collections now?
Olivia: That's right. I'm the collector. Carly wants all the money in her hands before the benefit begins. She doesn't want anyone welching out on the pledges after they had a few martinis.
Sonny: Oh, believe me. I know how she thinks.
Sonny: So, why are you doing errands for her?
Olivia: Oh, you didn't hear? You are looking at the new operations manager at the Metro Court hotel.
Sonny: Are you working for Carly or Jax?
Olivia: In other words, "Congratulations, Olivia, on your wonderful new job. I think it's great the way you managed to turn all those years running an auto parts department into a great job with a terrific future.
Sonny: All right, it must be Jax.
Olivia: Yeah, so I'm working for Jax, so what? He's the physical plant manager. Carly does, you know, advertising and design, and sometimes those two things overlap, like when I got to pick up big fat checks from foxy rich guys in a blizzard.
Sonny: You want this?
Sonny: How did this happen?
Olivia: How did it happen? Sonny, I got a great new job in a crap economy. You're making it sound like I broke my arm.
Sonny: No, Jax is up to something.
Olivia: Okay, okay, thanks. Never mind that I was the only one that could figure out why they had their third consecutive power failure on New Year’s Eve. It was a leaky water pipe, if you want to know. I saved the guy thousands of dollars in electrician fees, and he hired me on the spot. I got the Plaza View suite ready for business way ahead of schedule. What? What are you looking at?
Sonny: No, I'm just trying to picture you working for Jax.
Olivia: Jax is all right.
Sonny: Oh, Jax is all right. He's the kind of guy you and your brothers used to make fun of when their fancy cars broke down in the neighborhood, and they said you guys were servants and you guys were stupid, didn't know how to fix European cars.
Olivia: But we fixed their cars anyway, didn't we? And while we never sold ourselves short, we never took advantage of anybody.
Sonny: He is the kind of guy you guys hated, right? Self-entitled, selfish -- that is Jax.
Olivia: Sonny, what difference does this make to you? What, were you going to offer me a position in your wonderful organization here?
Sonny: I'm just asking.
Olivia: Yeah, well, I'm just telling. Jax is all right.
Sonny: Yeah, you keep saying that.
Olivia: Yeah, well, Jax knows exactly what he wants, and that makes him very, very easy to work for. I'll tell you what he said. The day that he hired me, he said he has no use for brooding, unimaginative, backward-looking people.
Sonny: Ouch. You realize that's a dig at me.
Olivia: Okay, so you see yourself as a brooding, unimaginative, backward-looking person?
Sonny: Jax and I go way back. That's all I'm saying.
Olivia: I get that, Sonny. So what? Is this something that you really are trying to tell me here? An actual concern, or are you just blowing hot air?
Sonny: No, I'm just saying the guy -- he melts like candy. You understand? And another thing. I'm just putting this out there. You can't trust him.
Olivia: Sonny, Jax is a lot of fun.
Olivia: He's fun to be around. He makes me laugh, okay?
Olivia: He's brilliant in the world of finances, he happens to be. And he appreciates what I can do. Okay, we did hit a bit of a snag when he tried to call me his girl Friday, but that ain't going to happen again.
Sonny: Yeah, I'm sure it won’t. Well, congratulations.
Olivia: Thank you very much.
Sonny: And you want the check?
Olivia: I do.
Sonny: There you go.
Olivia: Thank you for that, too. Oh -- oh, and I've got something for you. From Kate.
Anthony: No, no. A lady with your taste and style is much too fine for Sonny Corinthos. It's a good thing the wedding never happened.
Kate: Oh, I see. I'm not really going to discuss my private life with you, Mr. Zacchara. Although I will admit it's true, marriages usually work out better when the bride isn't shot at the altar. You'll excuse me.
Claudia: Why were you even talking to her?
Anthony: Why not? Maybe she'll give me some insight into Sonny.
Claudia: If you want insight into Sonny, maybe you should try asking his wife.
Sonny: Why would Kate be giving me a present now?
Olivia: Well, I think it was supposed to be a wedding present. She had it custom-made by some dear friend. Please, I don't know. There was some kind of delay. Whatever.
Sonny: Well, she told you a lot about it. What is it?
Olivia: Well, why don't you open it and find out?
Sonny: All right.
Sonny: It's nice.
Olivia: Kind of looks like something that you get as a retirement gift, only a lot more expensive.
Sonny: Well, I think it -- there's a lot of thought put into it.
Sonny: You said it was custom-made, right?
Olivia: Yeah. I guess you can get anything custom-made these days if you've got enough money.
Sonny: If you care enough.
Olivia: If you're thinking it's some kind of invitation, I wouldn't be thinking that.
Sonny: Why, because you don't want it to be?
Olivia: I like you, Sonny. I always have, you know? You're handsome, you're charming, and you've got perfect manners, and way, way, way, way deep underneath that you've got this beautiful soul with a tremendous capacity for love. It's the part in between that's got me a little concerned. Somewhere between that beautiful soul and the beautiful manners, you got a ruthless survivor, and that guy is selfish to the bone, obsessed with power, ambitious in a way that even Kate Howard cannot understand.
Sonny: But you do?
Olivia: Yeah, I do. So, maybe the beautiful soul is still in love with my cousin, but the ruthless survivor went out the day that you married Claudia Zacchara. Okay, you let Connie free. Now you let her stay that way.
Maxie: Usually this is what people say to me, but what were you thinking? Hacking into the FBI?
Spinelli: Attempting. Stone Cold stopped me a most vociferous manner.
Maxie: This is getting out of hand. Whatever Jason did to keep you out of trouble, let him. Just leave it alone.
Spinelli: But Stone Cold surely put his life at risk for my misdeeds.
Maxie: You work for him. You were following his orders.
Spinelli: But it is still my choice.
Maxie: I can't take this. It was bad enough that Winnifred caused so many problems between us, but I saw you get arrested and practically dragged off to jail. What if Jason couldn't help you this time? What if you had gotten caught?
Spinelli: Those are fair questions, all. So the Jackal adopted a change in tactics.
Maxie: I do not want to hear this.
Spinelli: I set a meeting with the fearsome fed.
Spinelli: One does what one must.
Maxie: And when is this meeting?
Spinelli: It was this very day that Jackal offered his cyber services for any project at any time if the fearsome feds would release Stone Cold from the devil's bargain.
Maxie: And people say that I'm self-destructive?
Spinelli: It was denied.
Maxie: Of course it was denied. You're the leverage, Spinelli. You are what they're holding over Jason's head until they get what they really want, and they're not going to stop until they have it.
Spinelli: Their methods are harsh and unjust.
Maxie: Harsh and unjust would be spending the next 20 years in prison. Let it go.
Spinelli: The Jackal shall persevere.
Maxie: Okay, but stay away from the FBI.
Anthony: I'll never understand the way your mind works, Claudia. After avoiding your poor crippled father for months, you ask me out for a drink.
Claudia: I missed you, Daddy.
Anthony: [Laughs] Your mother's sense of humor. You'll always have it.
Claudia: Maybe, but you need me a hell of a lot more than you ever needed my mother. Face it, Daddy, you're going to need me if this plan of yours is going to work.
Anthony: And what plan would that be?
Edward: Little Michael Corinthos is family, like it or not, and there is no reason why we should not present a strong family front at that benefit.
Tracy: Why do we have to give money to the people who stole him from us and put him in the line of fire?
Monica: Since when have you ever given a damn about Michael?
Edward: Since she doesn't want to part with a few thousand dollars, never mind the millions that's she's squandered on that reprobate husband of hers.
Tracy: You know what? That hospital would have gone under years ago were it not for the Quartermaine’s money. We do not to give more money to criminals.
Monica: The money is not going to Carly and Sonny. It is going to children with head trauma and no health insurance.
Tracy: To ease Sonny's guilt. I want no part of it.
Edward: Now, she has a point, Monica.
Monica: Can't the two of you put Sonny Corinthos aside just for a moment and maybe consider the greater good?
Tracy: If you say one word about serenity, I'm out of here.
Edward: Well, I've always been very fond of Carly.
Monica: Oh, that's it. Well, that wasn't exactly what I had in mind by the greater good, but okay. And by the way, Carly is very, very sorry that she kept Michael away from this family.
Tracy: You don't believe that?
Edward: I do. If A.J. had been strong enough to hold on to Carly, think what she would have brought to this family -- a lot of children and lively spirit.
Tracy: Carly is nothing but a social-climbing, gold-digging tramp who got lucky. Oh, just like you, Monica.
Monica: Now, just because you are standing in my house passing judgment on me, when clearly you are the most selfish, scheming --
Edward: Hey, hey, hey, what do you want?
Nikolas: Edward, I just came by to pay my respects to Monica in honor of --
Tracy: She's not dead yet.
Nikolas: Emily's birthday.
Robin: Hi, this is Robin Scorpio. I was wondering if you could fit me in this afternoon. Okay -- all right, well, I need to get beautiful again as soon as possible. I need everything -- manicure, pedicure, massage, facial, the works. Next Tuesday is good. That's fine. Will you call me back if something opens up sooner? Yeah, the middle of the day is fine. My schedule is wide open at the moment. Thanks.
Carly: Hey, Patrick. Hi, there.
Patrick: Hey, yeah, Michael’s benefit -- listen, I'm not going to be able to make it, but I'm definitely going to send a check.
Carly: Great, thanks. Robin's coming.
Patrick: Since when?
Carly: Since about half an hour ago. Sonny asked me to over there and invite her, and I did. Didn't expect her to say yes, though.
Patrick: Yeah, well, she's probably just cooped up being in the house. Did she mention anything about a babysitter?
Carly: I think a babysitter is the least of your problems. Look, what I'm about to say, consider the source, Robin and I, you know, we really don't get along, but --
Patrick: But what?
Carly: I know the signs, and there's something seriously wrong with Robin.
Claudia: Sonny is not the most attentive husband.
Anthony: Whose fault is that?
Claudia: It gives me time to think.
Anthony: Uh-oh. That's not such a good thing.
Claudia: You know that aneurysm that you had? Maybe I triggered it.
Anthony: Well, you were certainly willing to let me die at your feet.
Claudia: And yet here you are, all the same.
Claudia: It makes me think, though, you know, what if a man sat down all the time and then suddenly, he started walking around? I mean, could that trigger an aneurysm?
Anthony: It might if the man could walk.
Claudia: What if you could? Hmm? What if you could walk all this time, Daddy? And what if you could shoot as well?
Anthony: What if the man couldn't?
Claudia: Then I guess he would walk right straight into the Queen of Angels church and pick up a Russian rifle that he placed there himself, and then poor Kate Howard -- boom. Happy never after?
Anthony: Or I could sprout wings and fly. It's just about as likely.
Claudia: Yeah, I'm just playing what-if, you know me.
Claudia: Too much imagination, but, you know, it makes sense, because you know that Sonny would -- Sonny would blame the Russians, and then Jason would be slow to act, you know, to fight back, so Sonny would need us, and he would come to us. In fact, didn't you say that very thing the night that Kate Howard was shot? Isn't that what you said?
Anthony: This is a very interesting theory, Claudia.
Claudia: Thank you.
Anthony: You're welcome. Maybe you figured it out on your own. Maybe somebody told you. In any case, why would you be stupid enough to tell me?
Kate: The concierge said I had a special delivery.
Sonny: Yeah, you do.
Kate: You don't want it?
Sonny: I appreciate you giving me the watch, it's just I don't need another watch.
Kate: Okay, well, I don't really need a reminder of a year I wasted, so --
Sonny: So that's what it -- that's what we were, just a waste of time?
Kate: I don't know, Sonny. Is it a wasted year to be mocked and ridiculed? To have your reputation seriously damaged? To be almost killed twice?
Sonny: I never meant to hurt you.
Kate: You married another woman.
Sonny: Yeah, but if you hadn't gotten shot, we would be the ones that would be married, right? We would be happy. Everything would be fine.
Kate: Yeah, right, but I did get shot.
Sonny: Yeah, I know.
Kate: Yeah, I did, and you did -- you did kind of lie to me about getting back into the mob, so I guess I was the one living in a fool's paradise. Glad it's over.
Sonny: Glad it's over. So that's it, and you don't love me any more? That's the whole thing? No, I'm just -- okay, I know you don't want to hear this, but I'm going to find out who shot you. No.
Kate: Sonny, it doesn't matter.
Sonny: It could be Trevor, it could be Anthony.
Kate: It's not Trevor.
Sonny: It could be my wife Claudia. And I promise you, whoever it is, is going to pay.
Carly: When I showed up at your house today, Emma was crying, who knows for how long. She was in the nursery. Anything could have been happening. Robin kept making up excuses not to go in and check on her. And then I threatened to go in there and pick up the baby. Finally, Robin goes in there, but she wheels the bassinet out into the room. She didn't even pick the baby up. She wouldn't touch her.
Patrick: Oh, I'm sure she picked her up in the nursery where you couldn't see.
Carly: Okay, that's certainly possible. Robin barely looked at Emma the whole time I was there. Even when I picked her up, she was focused on me, not the baby. Then I brought up things that I knew would annoy Robin, like sticking little bows in Emma’s hair.
Patrick: Robin would hate that.
Carly: Yeah, and you know what? She had no response at all. She said nothing.
Patrick: Maybe she didn't want to argue with you.
Carly: Or maybe she has postpartum depression. One of my first symptoms with Michael was I couldn't even touch him. I was so overwhelmed, and that's just how Robin is right now.
Patrick: You know, Carly, we just moved into a new house. She's under a lot of stress. We got married twice. She got sick after Emma was born. She's not at work.
Carly: And if you're rattling off excuses this easily, it means you're worried, too. Hey, Robin thinks I'm a terrible mother. If I had postpartum depression, she can't have it.
Patrick: I understand, Carly, that you guys don't really like each other, but --
Carly: Patrick, if I hadn't shown up at your house, your daughter could still be crying.
Robin: Okay, don't wake up.
Robin: Emma, I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I didn't want to wake you up. I just thought you would be more comfortable in your nursery. If I put you back in the nursery, will you stop crying for just a little while, please?
[Baby continues to cry]
Robin: I want to pick you up. I -- I -- every time I do, you just cry harder, and I don't know how to comfort you, and I'm just -- I'm so tired of feeling bad. That's why I'm going to go to the benefit tonight. Emma, I just -- I think I'm a bad mom. I just don't know how to do this. I don't know how to do it. But I'm going to get better. I'm going to get better, and I'm going to figure out a way, and I'm going to be better, okay? Just stop crying for just a second so I can think, all right? Please? Please just -- [Sighs] Okay, fine. Fine, fine. I've been through worse. I just have to pull it together. Pull it together and it'll be fine. We're going to be fine.
