Jason: Arresting Spinelli is a violation of our agreement. You need to let him go.

Agent Rayner: At the risk of sounding obvious, you're in no position to make demands.

Jason: I'm asking you to be a man of your word and honor our agreement.

Agent Rayner: I gave you all the time I had, and you failed to deliver Zacchara. Did you think we were going to wait indefinitely?

Jason: If I weren't standing here having this conversation with you, I'd be closer to finding him.

Agent Rayner: Closer doesn't cut it.

Jason: Okay, look. I'm on it. You're going to have Anthony tonight.

Agent Rayner: Well, you better back that up with the goods, and you better put a rush on it, because I'm going to deliver Mr. Spinelli to a federal prison in one hour.

Sonny: We made a deal. I held up my end. There are a million unmarked, non-sequential bills. You get me? And there are another 20 in an account in the Grand Keyes. Time for you to step up.

Anthony: Can I be sure you'll let me go?

Sonny: You've got my word. There is nothing you have that I want except Claudia. You give her to me, and you can go to your well-earned, well-funded retirement. You harm a hair on her head, and I will kill you where you stand.

Anthony: Your concern for my daughter is touching, but I suggest you can the threats. We don't have time for me to be sufficiently impressed.

[Anthony sighs]

Anthony: You see that building? I left Claudia on the roof. But she's not going to be there for long.

Sonny: What's your safety? What's your safety net?

Anthony: If you jump me or prevent me from leaving in any way, you should make it to the alley just in time to see your wife splatter-paint the moon with blood.


Alexis: Good, Kelly's fine dining.

Nikolas: Be quiet. You like Kelly's and you know it.

Alexis: I was just thinking maybe we'd go someplace a little fancier, but this is fine. Apparently, you have a craving for chili and the waitress that looks alarmingly like Emily.

Nikolas: Look, I just thought the two of us could share a nice dinner together in everyone's favorite diner to help offset my -- hello? Offset my image as a complete stalker. So I'm ready to order. How about you? Let's go.

Alexis: Okay. Just don't rush me, okay, because I got up at 5:30 this morning so that I could think about working out, and then I don't, and then I went to my laptop and, of course, the whole thing was hijacked by a virus, so it kind of went downhill from there. So you are the bright spot in my day. To have my nephew call me and invite me to a nice, nice restaurant where I was kind of hoping for a martini and a nice fresh grilled fish. But I'll have a... a cube steak and a fizzy soda or something else that goes -- oh, look. They have new things on the menu.

Waitress: What can I get you?

Nikolas: She's not quite ready yet. Could we have Rebecca be our waitress? Would that be okay?

Waitress: Sorry, this isn't her station.

Nikolas: Oh. Well, then I guess we'll move.

Carly: I'm so sorry about this.

Jax: Why do you insist on apologizing?

Carly: Because --

Jax: Because this is out of your control.

Carly: But it always happens. Just when we're about to be happy, we want to focus on our life, Sonny has a crisis and it just blows everything to hell.

Jax: Look, that would make it Sonny's fault, wouldn't it?

Carly: I'm disappointed. I'm really disappointed. I wanted to go home with you. And I wanted to crawl on the couch, and then go upstairs and have sex all night long, and try to be quiet so Morgan didn't hear us down the hall.

Jax: Oh, well, now Morgan is right behind the suite, which is only a little connecting doorway, so -- are you going to be able to contain yourself?

Carly: A couple hours ago, you were freaking out, and I was the one trying to calm you down. Now you're teasing and being optimistic.

Jax: Well, it's a good thing we balance each other out.

Carly: You can't possibly be as okay with this as you're pretending to be.

Jax: Okay, instead of choking on my rage, I've decided to focus on all the things I have to be grateful for, okay? After months of back and forth and almost divorcing -- and in fact, I still have the latest draft of Alexis' decree on my desk.

Carly: Oh. That's something that I can be happy about.

Jax: Why?

Carly: Because Alexis is going to have to admit that you stayed married to me even though she tried to push the divorce.

Jax: Now, I'm grateful for what she's done. I'm also happy that her efforts were unnecessary, okay?

Carly: Me, too.

Jax: I'm glad I'm still your husband.

Carly: Me, too.

Jax: I would've liked a little more time to bask in the glory of our reconciliation --

Carly: I know.

Jax: But, unfortunately, real life -- you know, it catches up with us. Our real life includes Sonny and his shady business dealings.

Carly: I know.

Jax: Yeah, I'm not happy about it, but I refuse to give it more power than it deserves.

Carly: You're so amazing.

Olivia: I am so sorry. I realize that this couldn't possibly be a worse time --

Jax: No, that's fine. It's okay.

Olivia: Berlin just called, and they really, really need to speak to you right now.

Jax: I'll take it in my office. I'll be right back.

Olivia: I'm so sorry.

Carly: That's okay. Jax can use a distraction.

Olivia: Yeah.

Carly: Although, he seems to be handling all this better than me.

Olivia: Can I ask what you mean when you say "all this"? What's going on with Sonny?

Agent Rayner: Take a break. We'll transport him in an hour or so. Mr. Spinelli, we meet again.

Spinelli: Indeed, which rather swiftly brings me to the clarification I seek. I was under the apparently mistaken impression that my legal woes had been addressed.

Agent Rayner: A deal was made on your behalf. It wasn't honored. Unfortunately, you're the guy in the middle.

Maxie: Oh, excuse me. I need to see my dad.

Policeman: I'm sorry, Maxie. The commissioner is not in at the moment.

Maxie: Never mind. What's going on?

Agent Rayner: You're not authorized to be in here.

Maxie: Well, I already am. And in case you missed it in your single-minded persecution against my poor friend Spinelli, my dad is the boss of everyone in there, and no cop is going to throw me out of here on the account of you.

Agent Rayner: Would care to put that theory to a test?

Maxie: I just want you to honor the deal you made and let poor Spinelli go.

Agent Rayner: Miss Jones, you're interfering in a classified government operation. I suggest you stop yourself now, or I will throw you in jail for obstruction of justice.

Anthony: From the lack of verbal communication, I'm going to take a wild guess and assume it's Morgan back there. Can I turn around and face death like a man?

Jason: Slowly.

Anthony: Except I'm not facing death, and we both know it. See, I'm thinking you cut a deal with the feds to save your tech geek, and it requires my live body. And to tell you the truth, that doesn't bother me. It's not the worst of alternatives. So I'll go with you quietly and let my lawyers earn their keep. After all, I'm just a crazy old man.

Sonny: Claudia.

[Claudia mumbles]


Sonny: Don't -- don't move.

Claudia: You need to get out of here. Sonny, my father did not set this up so that you could save me. He set it up so you would die trying.

Sonny: Shh, stop talking, okay? I'm trying to figure this out.

Claudia: No, no, there's no time for that. Just save yourself.

Sonny: I'm not leaving you.

Alexis: Pay no attention to my nephew. This table is just fine. All right, I'll have the --

Nikolas: No, no, no, just -- she's still not ready. Could you excuse us just for one minute? Just one minute. Are you literally trying to sabotage me?

Alexis: Yes, I am, and it's for your own good, because you've got to stop pressuring that woman that looks alarmingly like Emily.

Nikolas: What pressure? What's wrong with exchanging pleasantries with Rebecca while she serves us our dinner? And I'd like to get your take on her. Okay. All right, look. There's a 20 in it for you if you can get Rebecca to take our table. Yeah?

Waitress: Done.

Nikolas: All right.

[Nikolas laughs]

Nikolas: What?

Rebecca: Hey.

Nikolas: Hi.

Rebecca: You ready to order?

Nikolas: Yeah.

Alexis: I'm so sorry. If you'd just stand right there, I will explain to my nephew all the many ways that he is out of line.

Spinelli: Though I appreciate Maximista's passionate defense, I beseech you. Please take your leave before you further antagonize the federal ones. There will truly be no justice if --

Maxie: Agent Rayner doesn't care about justice, Spinelli. It's just a word he uses to justify his underhanded tactics. Do you see how transparent you are? You don't want to arrest

Spinelli because you think he's a menace to society. You're just using him to get Jason.

Agent Rayner: Let me explain something, Miss Jones. Your friend here is a hacker for the mob. That would make him the bad guy, not me. I'll give you two a moment.

Spinelli: Thank you, sir.

Maxie: Are you okay?

Spinelli: Not really. I'm beginning to think the federal ones are right and I should pay for my crimes.

Maxie: Spinelli, don't say that. There has to be a way to get you out of this. I'm going to find it.

Lulu: We're at the PCPD. Spinelli is in interrogation. Please get here as soon as you can.

Agent Rayner: You're John Zacchara, Anthony's son.

Johnny: That's right. I'm also a friend of Damian Spinelli.

Agent Rayner: Perfect. You want to do your friend a favor? Help us find your father.

Claudia: Sonny, please, you need to get out of here.

Sonny: I can't defuse this thing without detonating the bomb.

Claudia: Gee, what a surprise. Are you going to finally listen to me and get out of here before you blow yourself up? Look, I just need you to look after my brother, okay? Make sure nobody --

Sonny: Why are we wasting time talking about Johnny? He's not the one here in danger. You are. Now, I got to defuse this thing.

Claudia: Do you know how?

Sonny: No. But I know somebody who does.

Anthony: That's some brilliant deal you made. You make a present of me to the feds. I plead insanity. My lawyers get me sent off to some cushy nut house for a year or two, and then I'm back out on the street, free to carry on. Meanwhile, you're going to be looking over your shoulder. Your life won't amount to a plugged nickel once word gets out that you did dirty work for the feds. And since they won't have gotten what they wanted, you can bet they're going to come after Spinelli again, leaving you right back where you started. Ingenious.

Jason: I'll live with whatever happens.

Anthony: Listen to me. You could improve your odds for a happy ending. You let me go, grab both businesses, be the big Kahuna on the eastern seaboard, and I'll owe you one.

[Phone rings]

Jason: Yeah.

Sonny: I need you to talk me through dismantling a bomb.

Alexis: Let me just say that by walking in here and throwing your money around and pressuring this poor woman to wait on you could be... actionable in a court of law.

Nikolas: That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard in my entire life. I'm a customer here, just like everybody else.

Alexis: All right, let me just -- I'm sorry. What is your last name?

Rebecca: Shaw.

Alexis: All right, has Miss Shaw asked you more than once to leave her alone?

Nikolas: You're interrogating me right now?

Alexis: Yes or no?

Nikolas: Yes, yes.

Alexis: Okay, so after asking you more than once, you continue to come in here and harass her, so, in fact, you are ignoring her request.

Nikolas: This is a public place. I can come here whenever I want.

Alexis: But still, you are using your money and power to try to force her to do something that she doesn't want to do. So it is clearly questionable behavior at best. I mean, can't you see that?

Rebecca: Look, in all fairness, I didn't give Nikolas much of a choice.

Lucky: Hey.

Elizabeth: Hi.

Lucky: How are you feeling?

Elizabeth: Well enough to be going home. Is everything okay?

Lucky: Yeah, fine. The boys, they're great. They're with your grandma. They miss you. Oh, they made more cards, but I kind of forgot them. I'm sorry.

Elizabeth: That's okay. That's okay. I'll get them when I get home. What's going on? What happened?

Lucky: Cam is kind of under the impression that, as soon as his mommy gets out of the hospital, that we'll kind of all be living together.

Elizabeth: Oh. Wow.

Lucky: Yeah, my sentiments exactly.

Elizabeth: Hmm. Well, you know, I have told them that we still love each other, but we're just not married anymore. I guess that's a distinction that's kind of hard to make for the little guy. Sometimes it's hard for me to make.

Lucky: You know, what happened during the crisis --

Elizabeth: Lucky, none of that was real. But I hope you know how much it meant to me that you were sitting by my bed when I woke up.

Lucky: I couldn't be anywhere else.

Elizabeth: You know, I kind of thought that I had ruined that connection between us until the night I trashed my studio because I was so scared and disgusted with myself for what I had done to my kids. And then, all of a sudden, you were there. I mean, you took that knife out of my hand and you just held me. I knew at that point that in spite of everything, we will always have faith in each other. Because if you ever needed me, I would do the same for you.

Lucky: You already have.

Elizabeth: And I don't want to lose that.

Lucky: That is why I'm here.

Carly: You know, sometimes I feel like I jinx myself. I know that sounds ridiculous. But if I hadn't sent housekeeping over to move all Jax's things in the second we got back together --it was like I was pushing so hard to have everything I wanted, it's like the universe just pushed back. I mean, before Mercedes had all of Jax's suits put away, we get a phone call from Bernie that we have to put more guards on Morgan. You would think Sonny would call me himself to him know what was going on. You know, "Hey, Carly, our kid may be in danger. I have to put more guards on him." But no, he didn't do that. But I can't get fired up and angry and bitter at Sonny, because what the hell does that do? It doesn't bring Michael back. It doesn't make Morgan any safer.

Olivia: Honey, I don't know what to say. I don't know what I would do. If my kid was in danger because of Sonny Corinthos, I don't know -- I would change my name, leave town, or just go out of my mind. I mean -- you know, he's always been like this, even when we were growing up. I mean, of course, not that there was anyone's children involved with him that anyone had to worry about, obviously. But he was just always getting into trouble -- you know, in some neighborhood fight, or Joe Scully would call him with a job, and he would just disappear, you know, for hours or sometimes for days. And I would just be... Pulling my freaking hair out, you know? And, of course, the whole time I would have to cover to my parents and to my brothers who -- let me tell you, they hated him. I could not let them know that I was seeing him. And then he would just come strolling back, just come strolling by, flashing his dimples like nothing ever happened, like there was nothing wrong, you know. And I -- Carly, I would go ballistic. We would have a fight. I'd be screaming in his face. And then I'd go stomping off. I would swear to God, to whoever was listening to me, that I didn't care about him, I was through with him. I didn't care what happened to Sonny anymore.

Carly: But you did. And I think you still do.

Olivia: You know, of course -- of course I care what happens to him. I mean, we've got a history together. And, of course, I don't want anything bad to happen to him, but... you know. The one thing I know about Sonny is he doesn't need any protecting.

Carly: You still worry about him. You can admit it to me. I'm not going to hold it against you.

Olivia: You know, you can admit that you're still worried about him, too. That doesn't take away anything you got going on with Jax.

[Carly sighs]

Olivia: I mean, you've got the man's children. That is a bond that's always going to be there between you. You know, that's not going to go away.

Carly: No.

Maxie: I can't believe you were arrested again. What's going with Jason? I thought he was supposed to take care of this.

Spinelli: Don't blame Stone Cold. It's not his fault that evil Anthony slipped the noose, as it were.

Maxie: It's just not fair. I mean, you got out of that fire alive, and I thought we were home free, that we would have all the time we needed. And I'm -- I'm not ready to give up on that hope yet. I don't care if I have to break you out of here myself, Spinelli. We're getting you out of this.

Johnny: I got no problem turning my father in, but I don't know where he is.

Agent Rayner: Maybe not, or maybe you're covering your ass, safeguarding your inheritance.

Lulu: You have no idea what you're talking about. Johnny cut ties with his family because he's not like them.

[Agent Rayner chuckles]

Lulu: What? What are you smiling about? You come over here acting all superior, making the wrong assumptions. But Johnny is not a part of any of his family's criminal activity.

Agent Rayner: Don't you ever feel guilty snowing your girlfriend like that?

Jason: How many wires?

Anthony: I can answer that. Five or six.

Sonny: Four.

Jason: Different colors?

Anthony: Oh, yeah, magenta, chartreuse --

Sonny: Red, blue, black, and green.

Anthony: Teal, mauve, or did I use black? I couldn't decide which was better. And then I remembered my daughter's fondness for the color. You know, black clothes, black hair, black heart.

Sonny: You need to pay attention. I need you help here, Jason.

Jason: Yeah, I'm here. Okay, follow the lead red wire.

Sonny: Okay, timer to plastique.

Jason: That's a decoy. Cut it.

Sonny: Are you sure?

Jason: Cut it.

Sonny: Okay.

Jason: Okay, follow the blue wire.

Sonny: Okay, for the -- uh, little box on the side.

Jason: That's not a factor.

Sonny: We're down to green or black. Which is it?

Jason: What are the positions?

Sonny: Both from the same point on the detonator to the bomb.

Jason: Sonny, that could go either way.

Sonny: Okay, a crapshoot is what you're saying.

Jason: Yeah.

Sonny: Claudia, we've hit a wall. What's your favorite color, green or black?

Claudia: Sonny, you're not serious.

Sonny: It's your life. Pick it. Pick it!

Claudia: Black, of course.


[Beeping stops]

Sonny: Good choice.

[Claudia groans]

[Claudia whimpers]

Jason: Get up.

Anthony: Are you going to knock me back down again? 'Cause if so, I'm going to skip the dance and stay right where I am.

Jason: Get up now.

Jason: Looks like Sonny cut the right wire.

Anthony: Sonny's a fool, and so are you if you go back to being subordinate to him. Trust me, I know. You don't want to hinge your life on the whims of my capricious daughter, which is obviously what you're doing, since she's obviously playing Sonny like a harp.

Jason: Well, you're the fool, Anthony. You set the trap that caught you, pushing Sonny into marrying Claudia. Now Claudia's on Sonny's side, and you lose.

Claudia: That's a fact, Daddy. Sorry to disappoint you. I know you expected me to be in a million pieces right now, but my husband saved my life.

Anthony: That's because he doesn't know.

Sonny: Know what?

Agent Rayner: At the very least, be fair to Ms. Spencer here. Clarify the realities of your life. When your father dies, you will inherit whatever's left of the Zacchara organization. You'll be expected to lead accordingly, and you will, until I shut you down. And the beat goes on. I've waited long enough. Get Spinelli.

[Phone rings]

Agent Rayner: Rayner.

Jason: It's done. You'll find Anthony in 1965 Hawthorne Drive.

Agent Rayner: I'll send someone to pick him up. Well, looks like we found your father after all.

Lucky: That -- the kiss, you know, that happened on the roof before you were back yet --

Elizabeth: Oh, Lucky, please, you don't even have to explain.

Lucky: But I meant it. I just --

Elizabeth: But it wasn't a marriage proposal, which is a good thing, 'cause if you'd have proposed, I would just have to say no.

Lucky: Good, now that we got that cleared up.

Elizabeth: And technically, you're still with Sam, so --

Lucky: We broke up. Yeah, it was just time. I mean, we weren't angry, and we just wished each other well.

Elizabeth: Oh. I'm sorry to hear that.

Lucky: Yeah.

Elizabeth: Yeah, I wished Jason well, too. I really need to let go, and if I rebound, then it's not honoring who you are or your place in my life.

Lucky: I think it's just time that we both kind of figure out who we are on our own.

Elizabeth: I agree completely.

Lucky: So I'm going to tell Cam that we won't be living together, but we'll always be a family.

Lucky: We'll always love each other.

Elizabeth: Always.

Rebecca: Look, I won't deny it's disconcerting to be treated like a walking ghost, but you know, I do look like Emily, and Nikolas is allowed to have a reaction, and hopefully sooner rather than later, he'll get used to seeing me, and my resemblance won't be so compelling.

Alexis: So he's not making you uncomfortable?

Rebecca: Not to the point where I'd consider legal action, no.

Alexis: Then you're willing to wait on him.

Rebecca: Yeah, sure, even exchange pleasantries.

Alexis: Okay, my work is done.

Nikolas: You're not going to eat now?

Alexis: No. I need a martini.

[Bell rings]

Rebecca: I'll be right back to take your order.

Nikolas: So you're going to slip out the back door, in other words.

Rebecca: No, I said I'll be right back, and I will.

Nikolas: Hey, let me -- just let me give you a hand with that.

Rebecca: Hey, no, no, no.

Nikolas: No, it's okay. It's just going over there.

Rebecca: I got it.

Nikolas: Tomato.

Rebecca: Don't help me.

Nikolas: I got --

[Rebecca yelps]

Rebecca: Oh, my God.

Nikolas: I'm okay. Everything's fine.

Rebecca: Seriously, I've got it. Just stay right --

Nikolas: Please, let me help.

Rebecca: Oh.

Nikolas: I am so sorry. Please, I spilled it. I should be --

Rebecca: This is my only chance to make a good impression on my boss. It's not going to be very good if you keep getting in my way.

Nikolas: That's why I want you to let me -- please, let me do this. Let me clean this up. I insist. Please.

Rebecca: Fine, knock yourself out.

Nikolas: Okay. Okay, mop. Look, I'm really, really sorry about this. I'm okay. I'm all right. Everything's fine.

[Rebecca laughs]

Nikolas: All right. No, no, no, I got it. Get –

Maxie: They took Spinelli to fill out whatever paperwork, which is kind of annoying, seeing as how he should never have been arrested in the first place. But we need to look on the bright side, right? At least he's not going to prison.

Anthony: I want to speak to my son.

Agent Rayner: I'll allow it, assuming it's all right with John.

Lulu: No, don't.

Johnny: This could be the last time I see him.

Lulu: So what?

Johnny: So what? He's my father. I’m going to go talk to him. I don't know how long I'm going to be, so you may want to wait for me at home. I'll meet you there.

Lulu: Whatever.

Maxie: You're going to wait for him, right? I mean, Spinelli and I will hang out with you.

Lulu: No, believe me, I'm not going to stand here, waiting around while his father jerks him around yet again, unless you and Spinelli need me.

Maxie: No, the crisis is over. Bye.

Anthony: Well, it looks like this is my swan song for now. I've been handed over into federal custody, courtesy of my loving son-in-law and his henchman.

Johnny: Maybe Sonny and Jason had the right idea and you deserve to go to prison.

Anthony: I'm not without redeeming qualities, John. For example, I could have told Sonny that Claudia was responsible for his kid getting shot. I came this close, but I didn't. You want to know why?

Olivia: You know, I actually felt sorry for Sonny during that hospital crisis.

Carly: Why?

Olivia: Are you kidding me? When he came walking around that corner and saw the four of us sitting there --

[Carly laughs]

Olivia: Honey, that was the man's worst nightmare. He didn't know where to look. I mean, I'm sorry. He's getting what's coming to him.

Carly: Yeah.

Olivia: You get involved with that many women, eventually it's going to bite you in the ass.

Carly: It's biting. Whatever situation is going on, it has something to do with Claudia.

Olivia: Well, and you know, I'll tell you, he got me there, too. I know, I know. I ran my mouth off all over town about how Sonny was going to marry her to get the family's power and all that stuff, but you know what? I didn't think he was actually going to go through with it. I truly thought that Sonny believed in marriage the way they taught us in church -- you know, that the man loved the woman, or at least they had some feelings for each other.

Carly: Sonny married Claudia for the power, and he got it.

Olivia: That's very sad.

Carly: It is, but that's Sonny's choice.

Olivia: Yeah.

Carly: That's why I'm so happy to be with Jax.

Olivia: On that note, I am going to go rescue your husband from this phone call. I know he wants to be close to you, and those people can go on for hours.

Carly: Thanks.

[Phone rings]

Carly: Jason, is everything okay?

Jason: Yeah, it's fine. The situation's been handled.

Carly: What's going on? What the hell happened?

Jason: Anthony came back to Port Charles and took Claudia hostage.

Carly: Just Claudia? Is anyone else in danger?

Jason: That's why Bernie sent the guards. But it's over now. Anthony's been arrested. Are you okay? You and Morgan? Everything fine?

Carly: Yeah, I'm fine, I'm fine. We're here at the hotel. Jax is with us. Can you please -- the next time something like this happens, will you please call me yourself? I don't want to hear it from Mercedes after Bernie’s called her.

Jason: Yeah, I know. I'm sorry. It just happened so fast.

Carly: Okay. I'm glad you're okay. Is Sonny okay?

Jason: Yeah, he's fine. He took Claudia home.

Carly: I bet she loved that.

Jason: Carly, I'm hanging up now. I got things to do.

Carly: Okay, well, I'm going to call you tomorrow. I'm going to come see you, 'cause I want to hear all the details.

Jax: Details about what?

[Carly exhales]

Carly: It's over. Everything is over, and everything's fine. Anthony Zacchara was arrested.

Jax: Oh. Well, all I care about is that you can stop being afraid.

Carly: I just want us to have some us time to be together. Thank you.

Jax: Well, you're welcome. I'm sure I'm -- I'm not sure what I did, but --

Carly: Just being wonderful you. I'm so happy that I'm married to you.

Claudia: Race you to the bar.

Sonny: I'll get it. Vodka?

Claudia: Yes, please. Make it a double. My hands are shaking.

Sonny: Mine, too.

Claudia: Really?

Sonny: There's yours.

Claudia: Brr.

Sonny: Mine. To life.

Claudia: Life. Ah.

Sonny: Mm.

Claudia: You know, you didn't seem all that nervous when you were dismantling that bomb. That was --

Sonny: Shaky hand would have blown us to pieces. That's why I like having Jason around, because he's great with bombs. I hate that stuff.

Claudia: Really? Well, I'm even more impressed knowing that it wasn't easy for you. You saved my life, you know. You put your life on the line for me. Why?

Spinelli: Ah. The Jackal has been processed and is free to go, hopefully for good this time.

Maxie: Good, I don't think I could take this anymore. Worry breeds frown lines.

Spinelli: Well, are you ready to go, before the federal ones change their minds?

Maxie: Just really quick -- I know sometimes I can't help myself, but I don't want to hurt you again, and no matter what I say to you ever, you are my essential person, and I don't want to be without you.

Spinelli: You never will be. Shall we?

Maxie: We shall.

Jason: Well?

Agent Rayner: The evidence you provided is enough to put Anthony Zacchara behind bars for the rest of his life.

Jason: Where's Spinelli?

Agent Rayner: Probably hacking into some unsuspecting government computer even as we speak.

Jason: You let him go?

Agent Rayner: Yes, I did.

Jason: That's good. Then we're finished.

Agent Rayner: Not so fast. Zacchara was a nice show of good faith. Now we want Sonny, and you're going to give him to us.

Johnny: If you're going to torture Claudia with Michael's shooting, you might as well implicate me. I'm just as responsible.

Anthony: Listen to you, always taking Claudia's side.

Johnny: She does the same for me.

Anthony: That she does, which is why I know that she would take a solo fall for Michael's shooting and never implicate you. In fact, she'd deny your involvement to her dying day, and that's admirable, in a twisted kind of way.

Johnny: Is that why you've decided not to tell Sonny, hmm? You admire Claudia?

Anthony: No. I knew Sonny would kill her, and that you'd probably get yourself dead trying to avenge her, and that wasn't worth the momentary satisfaction. See, that's where you kids go astray. You don't know how to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. It's an invaluable tool. That's one thing I've learned in my life. There's another thing. Everything has its season. It all comes back around. The funny thing about the truth, son -- it wants -- no, it demands to be heard, always finds its way out. Your sister is living on borrowed time, John. That's the one thing I could not have planned. That's the punchline to the joke, is that Claudia is actually being loyal to the man who will one day take her life. Don't you just love irony?

[Anthony chuckles]

Claudia: You know, I didn't expect you to pay that ransom for me, but I certainly never expected you to dismantle a bomb with your bare hands.

Sonny: I've done a lot I'm not proud of in my life, but I would not walk away and leave a wife behind.

Claudia: Oh, so you were being chivalrous?

Sonny: No, you were -- you looked helpless. I wasn't going to leave you to die.

Claudia: Because you felt sorry for me?

Sonny: I don't know what to feel at this point.

Claudia: Yeah, I know. Join the club. It was a lot easier hating you. It's what I feel right now -- it scares the hell out of me.

Sonny: Do you always run...from what scares you?

Claudia: I run into it.
