Elizabeth: Daddy, look who's awake.
Elizabeth: Say hi.
Patrick: Oh, she's hungry, too, huh? You know, thanks for printing out all this information. I see Robin's symptoms on every page.
Elizabeth: You know, the experts suggest that both parents seek the help of a professional.
Patrick: Yeah, well, that's a little difficult when she's not here.
Robin: I really shouldn't have stayed so long. I should get going.
Brad: I guess you didn't expect a common carpenter to ask you out dancing. If I crossed a line, I'm sorry.
Robin: No, it wasn't anything you said. It's my fault. I haven't totally been honest about my situation.
Jax: You know, I look back on all the things we've been through over the years. We let things get so complicated when they were really very simple.
Carly: Loving me is simple?
Jax: All that matters are those three little words. I love you, with all my heart. All we have to remember is that love transcends all. You complete my life, Carly, and I want to be married to you for the rest of my life, and I hope you feel the same way.
Carly: I do, I do.
[Minister clears his throat]
Minister: It looks like my work here is already done.
Sonny: Must be something pretty exciting in that mail.
Olivia: Why do you say?
Sonny: Well, because it's got your attention, and your mind is, like, going a mile a minute.
Olivia: Am I really that transparent?
Sonny: What do you mean? We know each other pretty well.
Olivia: You think we still do?
Sonny: Okay, you trust me, right? A little bit? What's up?
Olivia: I don't know.
Sonny: What do you mean?
Olivia: I don't know, but I know it's about time I figured it out.
Sonny: You're just full of surprises, aren't you?
Olivia: What the hell is that supposed to mean?
Sonny: Well, you used to get on my case all the time when I used to work for Joe Scully. You used to say to me, "Oh, you know, you should find honest work. You should be more ethical," and you're about to commit a felony right there.
Olivia: What the hell are you talking about?
Sonny: I'm talking about, you can't open people's mail. It's personal --
Olivia: I work for Jax. I open all his mail.
Sonny: Do you really?
Sonny: Even if it says personal?
Sonny: On the front? No?
Olivia: That is your own personal paranoia talking. On any given day of this year, you got about a thousand things more to hide than him. The man is clean as a whistle compared to you.
Sonny: Oh, yeah?
Sonny: We all have secrets, even Jax. Even you.
Olivia: I'll never tell.
Sonny: Hmm, right. Are you going to open Jax's envelope or not?
Minister: Did I misunderstand our agreed upon time?
Jax: Oh, no, no, no, not at all. We just couldn't resist getting started early.
Carly: Yeah, we're a little impatient.
Jax: Yeah, we tend to act first, think later.
Carly: Right, which has gotten us into trouble in the past.
Jax: Yeah, but not in the future.
Minister: Well, you are still married, so my services aren't necessary.
Jax: No, they are to us.
Carly: Right, we want to make it official.
Jax: Yes, we want to promise each other that we will work through any obstacles that we'll encounter in the future.
Carly: And never be apart again.
Minister: [Laughs] I must say, it's a pleasure to see two people so much in love, but clearly, you're ready to begin. So if you'll take a step backward and face each other. We have come together in the presence of God to witness and bless the joining together of this man and this woman in holy matrimony. The union of husband and wife in heart, body, and mind is intended by God for their mutual joy, for the health and comfort given one another in prosperity and adversity. So Jax, if you'll take Carly's hand in yours and repeat after me. I, Jax, take you, Carly, to be my wife.
Jax: I, Jax, take you, Carly, to be my wife.
Minister: To have and to hold from this day forward.
Jax: To have and to hold from this day forward.
Minister: For better or worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.
Jax: For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.
Minister: To love and to cherish 'til death do us part.
Jax: To love and to cherish 'til death do us part.
Minister: And now the ring. Take and wear this ring as a symbol of my constant faith and abiding love.
Jax: Take and wear this ring as a symbol of my constant faith and abiding love.
Minister: Now, Carly, take Jax's hand in yours, and repeat after me. I, Carly, take you, Jax, to be my husband.
Carly: I, Carly, take you, Jax, to be my husband.
Minister: To have and to hold from this day forward.
Carly: To have and to hold from this day forward.
Minister: For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health.
Carly: For better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, and in sickness and in health.
Minister: To love and to cherish 'til death do us part.
Carly: To love and to cherish 'til death do us part.
Minister: And now the ring.
Minister: Take and wear this ring as a symbol of my constant faith and abiding love.
Carly: Take and wear this ring as a symbol of my constant faith and abiding love.
Minister: I reaffirm that you are husband and wife. Those whom God has joined together let no one put asunder, Amen.
Jax and Carly: Amen.
Minister: You may kiss your bride -- again.
Winnifred: That is the third phone call the Jackal has most purposefully let roll to voicemail.
Spinelli: It was Stone Cold. I cannot speak to him.
Winnifred: Well, why not? You have proven yourself to be most daring and brave.
Spinelli: I had strict orders to remain confined in Maximista's apartment. I took great risk by leaving.
Winnifred: Well, yeah, because only you were so determined to right the wrongs of my superiors at the bureau.
Spinelli: I hacked into secret FBI files to erase all evidence they had against me, but ironically, I was committing the exact crime which I was being hunted for.
Winnifred: David against Goliath.
Spinelli: Ah, puny David, indeed. Stone Cold will be verily displeased should he find out, which he no doubt will if I speak to him, because I cannot tell a falsehood to my master. So it is best that I just avoid contact, especially since our mission was unsuccessful.
Alexis: Knock-knock. Glad you're home.
Jason: Not a good time.
Alexis: Well, you know what? It's about Spinelli, so you should probably listen.
Alexis: Okay, so I went to see Agent Rayner to talk to him about how I think he's abusing his power in dealing with your protégé. And so guess who I saw under his desk? Agent Leeds. See, and you're not even surprised.
Jason: Well, it's none of my business.
Alexis: The fact that the two of them are that close is none of your business?
Jason: This is what you came to tell me?
Alexis: What I came to tell you is that I didn't say anything about the fact that Winnifred was eavesdropping. In fact, I tried to get him out of the office, and as I got Agent Rayner into the hallway, I ran right into Spinelli.
Jason: You saw him at the federal building?
Alexis: I did, yeah. He was dressed like one of the blues brothers, and I think he was trying to be a secret service agent. In any case, I distracted Agent Rayner so that Spinelli could do whatever he was going to do with Winnifred in Agent Rayner's office. I should report the incident, but I'm not going to report the incident, because I happen to have a little bit of a soft spot for your peculiar little friend. So there, I've said it. It's all yours.
Jason: Thank you.
Alexis: You're welcome.
Robin: I've sort of been running, emotionally. There is someone back home that loves me very much. It's just that we've had a lot of changes in our life recently. I haven't been handling it very well. Neither has he. I felt like I was doing everything wrong, and then suddenly, I saw a chance to get away all by myself.
Brad: With your company, sending you up here to Rochester.
Robin: Right, I just thought I would get away, you know, get a chance to breathe, stop the downward spiral. None of that makes any sense to you, does it?
Brad: Well, I'm sorry you were hurt by somebody that you loved. I know how that is. But I didn't mean to make you feel sad.
Robin: Oh, no, it's okay. You're really easy to talk to.
Brad: You, too. I just wanted to ask you out, because I thought it would be fun, you know, nothing heavy. I wasn't going to get down on one knee and put a lug nut on your hand and ask you to have my babies.
Robin: Yeah, I tend to overthink things sometimes.
Brad: Well, it's all right. You know, that's what makes you human. I just don't want you to leave on my account.
Ruth: I'm back, with a bundle. Thanks for watching the place.
Brad: Oh, it was no problem. Time flew by.
Ruth: Would you mind holding her for a sec while I run and grab the crib?
Ruth: Don't worry. She's been fed, changed, and burped. That nice blouse of yours is almost guaranteed to stay clean.
Robin: Oh, no, it's not that.
Ruth: Well, have you ever held a baby before?
Robin: Of course.
Ruth: Oh, then you know they're not as fragile as they seem. Unless you don't want to. I can set it up myself.
Robin: No, no, no, it's okay. Let me hold her for you.
Robin: Hi, hi, hi. I just don't have that much experience with babies. I know this might sound silly, but I don't think they like me very much.
Ruth: She seems to like you just fine.
Robin: Well, she's not crying, so that's a victory.
Brad: You're doing great. Just bounce her a little bit.
Robin: Yeah, I guess. She's really sweet, though. What's her name?
Ruth: Anna. Thank you for holding her.
Robin: Oh, you're welcome.
Ruth: I have a hunch you'll be a wonderful mother someday.
Robin: I've got to go.
Patrick: You know, I'm sure Robin's in a lot of pain and confusion to take off like that, and I want to help her. I just don't know how.
Elizabeth: With love and patience.
Patrick: I tried that already.
Elizabeth: But that was before you were sure she had postpartum.
Patrick: Yeah, and I had an excuse for every red flag, you know? It was classic enabler.
Elizabeth: Oh, God, don't be so hard on yourself. Robin's still in denial.
Patrick: She has an excuse for everything, you know? She always denies it. There's nothing wrong, and I mean, I know she's going to come home, and we're going to have to face reality, but it's -- I mean, how are we supposed to help her when talking to Robin, like, with postpartum is like talking to a brick wall.
Elizabeth: A therapist can give you a lot of good ideas.
Patrick: You know, I got to be honest, Elizabeth. I mean, Somebody's going to have to take care of Emma, and I'm pretty pissed off about all this. I mean, Robin's a mother, you know. She's got responsibilities.
Elizabeth: Try to understand that Robin really thinks she's a bad mom, and she actually feels like she's helping by walking away from Emma.
Patrick: Yeah, well, I got to be honest. I think Robin's being selfish. I mean, that's not very supportive for a spouse, is it?
Elizabeth: And now you know why postpartum tears apart so many families.
Patrick: Yes, and I want to try and fix it before we get to that point.
Elizabeth: Have a little faith in yourself. I know you can do it.
Patrick: Yeah, but what about her? How am I supposed to get her through all this?
Winnifred: Well, perhaps we should not view our endeavor at the FBI headquarters as a failure, but more as a level reached and another to achieve.
Spinelli: I'm not sure we can compare this to a computer game.
Winnifred: Well, the obstacle of the replicating bodyguard between level seven and eight of the saga of Stone Cold -- that was indeed daunting, but after much toil, I reached it, and then I continued on. Oh, I'm still awed to be in the presence of the genius that created that game out of cyber-clay just in tribute to his mentor.
Spinelli: Yeah, it would have been time better spent fortifying my firewall so I never would have been placed in this position of peril with the federal ones in the first place.
Winnifred: But had you not, we might never have met, and I like to think that good can unexpectedly blossom from bad. Does the Jackal not agree?
[Knock on door]
Spinelli: Who could possibly be visiting Maximista and the original blonde one?
Winnifred: Okay, the priestess shall open the portal. Quick, hide.
Jason: Where is he?
Winnifred: To whom do you refer?
Jason: Spinelli, quit hiding!
Spinelli: May I ask how Stone Cold learned of m transgressions?
Jason: You went to Rayner's office to meet up with Winnifred. How could you let him do this?
Spinelli: No, do not harangue the priestess. She is not to blame --
Jason: You were not supposed to be hiding out. Do you know what that means? That means not leaving this apartment. But instead, you walk out of here, straight to the FBI headquarters. You know how stupid that was and how dangerous that is?
Spinelli: I predicted Stone Cold would be displeased.
Jason: Yeah, because you were seen by Alexis Davis. Lucky for you, she came to me instead of Rayner. Now, what the hell were you two doing? Did you get rid of the evidence?
Johnny: I came here as soon as I could. What's wrong?
Claudia: Your clothes. You're going to need a shower.
Johnny: What are you talking about? I thought you were in trouble.
Claudia: I'm going to be in trouble if you don't come tonight to this cocktail party that I'm throwing with Sonny. I'm serious, John. I need you there. There's nobody else that I trust and that can support me through this. I really --
Johnny: Wait a minute, back up. Cocktail party. You're kidding, right?
Claudia: No, it's for business associates. It's so that, you know, Sonny can solidify his return to his organization on the consolidated remains of the Zacchara Empire.
Johnny: And you want me there why?
Claudia: I told you, for support. I need you there for support, but also, I mean, it looks good. You know, it's to show that you're on board with Sonny's takeover.
Johnny: Claudia, how many times do I have to tell you, I'm out of the family business?
Claudia: Johnny, please? Please, do this for me. Please, I need you to do this for me. My whole life is riding on it. I won't make it without you.
Johnny: Your whole life is riding on something, all right, but it's not this.
Spinelli: We did actually succeed in erasing all incriminating evidence against the Jackal that was on file.
Winnifred: But we did not foresee that said evidence would be backed up on a flash drive with an undisclosed whereabouts.
Jason: Okay, see, now, that's great, because you know Rayner is going to be looking for these files, and when he can't find them, he's going to know exactly who erased them.
Spinelli: Well, then we have --
Jason: We both could get in trouble.
Spinelli: We have to find the flash drive post --
Jason: No, you let me handle it.
Spinelli: But I can do --
Jason: But nothing. You keep this up, and I'm going to get both of you out of the country.
Maxie: What? You did this on purpose. You want Spinelli to be in danger so you can go on the run with him. Well, I have news for you, twerpette. I'm not going to let that happen.
Jax: May I have the pleasure of dancing with my lovely wife?
Carly: You may.
Jax: What are you smiling about?
Carly: I was just thinking about the first time we got married and how much I like this better. No guests to greet, no one to threaten with the bouquet.
Jax: But no presents.
Carly: I don't care. We already have everything we could possibly want.
Jax: Have I told you that I'll love you forever?
Carly: Yeah, but you can tell me over and over and over again.
Jax: We're going to make it this time, Carly, until the end of our lives.
Carly: No separations, no pending divorce.
Jax: No one's ever going to come between us.
Carly: Then all is right with the world.
Jax: All is right with us.
Olivia: God, I hate it when you're right, but you're right. It's marked personal. I should respect that.
Sonny: Suit yourself.
Olivia: Thank you, I think I will. Carla! Mr. Jax requested all white flowers in the wedding suite, and I want to make sure the champagne is on ice. I don't want any screw-ups for the boss's big day, okay?
Alexis: Thank you. I know, I'm late, I'm late. I've had a crazy day, and I'm sure business requests from you will make it that much more crazy.
Sonny: I am throwing an event tonight for all the territories.
Alexis: A mob party, cool.
Alexis: RSVP or die.
Sonny: You want to keep the streets safe, right?
Alexis: I was just sort of thinking of the party games you could play -- bobbing for body parts, pin the tale on the squealer. Or you could play musical chairs. Whoever doesn't get a chair loses a limb.
Sonny: Friction with the Zaccharas is gone. Jason and I are back, and I'm back in business. The city will be at peace.
Claudia: I need you at this party, John. You're the only person I can count on and really trust.
Johnny: What about your husband?
Claudia: We've been getting along really good, really. I mean, he talks to me about stuff. He confides in me.
Johnny: Yeah, Sonny's a manipulator. He's looking at the one person, Claudia, and that's himself.
Claudia: You don't know him like I do.
Johnny: Claudia, you entered into this marriage for business reasons. Now the two of you are living under the same roof. You have a husband who you see every day and every night, and stop. You're a human being with genuine feelings and emotions. It's impossible to shut yourself off completely, Claudia. You're going to find a way to connect, and that's what worries me.
Claudia: I know what I'm doing, Johnny.
Johnny: No, Claudia, I don't think you do. You know, you could end up having a couple glasses of wine one night, open up to Sonny, say something about Michael -- next thing you know, he's putting two and two together.
Claudia: John, there is no way that I'm going to say anything to Sonny ever about having anything to do with Michael’s shooting.
Johnny: The truth is out there, Claudia, and it's going to surface. It always does. And when Sonny finds out that you're responsible for Michael’s shooting, he's going to kill you.
Elizabeth: Postpartum or not, Robin's a good person, and she loves you guys, and she really wants to be a good mom.
Patrick: Yeah, but until she admits she has a problem, it's up to me to take care of Emma.
Elizabeth: Yeah, but you're not doing this alone. I mean, your brother wants to help you, I'm here --
Robin gets so upset when I talk to anybody about this, and it just -- I'm sorry.
Elizabeth: For what?
Patrick: No, it's just -- you know, you're being so supportive and reminding me I have to so much to be thankful for, and I'm just, uh --
Elizabeth: And you get to be upset.
Patrick: Yeah, but not with you. Really, I don't now what I would have done without you. So thank you.
Elizabeth: You guys are going to get through this. And when you do, I'm going to be able to say I told you so. Call me, okay?
Patrick: Yeah. Maybe I'll just give you a call in the morning to touch base or something.
Elizabeth: Hang in there.
[Knock at door]
Elizabeth: Hi, Mac.
Mac: Hi, Elizabeth.
Patrick: Hey. Uh, I haven't heard from Robin yet. What did she say in her call to you, Mac?
Mac: What the hell did you say to make Robin run off and leave her baby behind?
Robin: Hi, this is room 412. Could you have my bill ready? I'm checking out early. Thanks.
Alexis: No, honey, I'm still at the Metro Court. I had to have a meeting with the judge at the last minute. Yeah, did you finish your homework? I'll help you when I get home, okay? So I'll be home, let's see, at around -- hello? Hello? Oh. Could this day get any worse?
Alexis: Please tell me this isn't so.
Carly: Oh, let me tell her.
Jax: Oh, no, no.
Carly: Oh, come on, let me tell her.
Jax: No, let me tell her. We just renewed our wedding vows.
Carly: Aren't you going to congratulate us?
Alexis: Congratulations. There's no discount on the next round of divorce negotiations.
Jax: Don't be so negative. There's not going to be a next one, okay?
Alexis: This -- who am I to say this is a disaster in the making? I mean, my track record is as bad as yours.
Jax: Oh, you never know, Alexis. Take it from me. Happiness could be right around the corner for you.
Alexis: Please don't wish that on me. I'm leaving before you two break out into "That's Amore".
Carly: That's one of the reasons we decided to have a private ceremony.
Jax: That is exactly one of the reasons.
Jax: You know, we should -- we could still jump on the jet and take a few days honeymoon in Fiji.
Carly: No. No, no. We're going to stay here; we're going to stick to the plan. This hotel is going to be our own little world.
Jax: Okay, okay, you're right.
Olivia: Uh, kids, the honeymoon suite is ready and waiting.
Jax: Wonderful. Champagne?
Olivia: Absolutely. I got the caviar and the frozen mini-pizzas.
Carly: Thank you.
Jax: Oh, you are good.
Olivia: Yes, I am.
Jax: Thank you very much.
Olivia: Uh, do you have a quick minute for a couple of business issues?
Jax: No, I don't. They can wait. Okay? All right.
Jax: Come on. Bye-bye.
[Elevator bell rings]
Carly: You know, I can't wait.
Jax: You know, I can think of something that can't wait. Happy honeymoon, Mrs. Jacks.
Carly: Happy honeymoon, Mr. Jacks.
Claudia: You are more surly than usual.
Jason: Why do you need to see me so bad, Claudia?
Claudia: I just wanted to make sure that you're coming to the little gathering tonight at the house.
Jason: I told Sonny I'd be there.
Claudia: Okay. Well, not everybody keeps their word, so I'm just -- I'm here to tell you, backing out is not an option.
Jason: Okay. I don't even know why he's doing this in the first place.
Claudia: Well, when I pitched it to him, I didn't think he'd go for it, either, but then --
Jason: Wait a minute, hold on. This whole thing is your idea?
Sonny: What are you doing here?
Johnny: Claudia asked me here. I let her think that I was leaving, but I decided to stay here so I could talk to you alone. She wants me to be at that party tonight.
Sonny: So be there.
Johnny: I said no.
Sonny: Don't be there.
Johnny: Claudia thinks it's a good idea that I show up.
Johnny: To make it public that I'm backing you in front of my father's old lieutenants. So it's clear where the power lies.
Sonny: I know where the power lies. With me.
Johnny: Okay, maybe. But it couldn't hurt to have me endorse you. So I gave it some thought and decided that I would be here under one condition. Divorce my sister.
Sonny: So what am I going to do? Divorce Claudia so you'll show up at the party? I don't even care if you're there or not.
Johnny: I got a lot of influence over the people my father used to work with.
Sonny: I'm sure you do.
Johnny: Danny Strega heads up two of the largest transport unions. He was hoping I would take over someday. He'll back whoever I back, and he'll undermine who I don't. There are others like him.
Sonny: Not enough.
Johnny: Enough to rock the boat on about a dozen key markets. People will question your authority, maybe even sabotage you.
Sonny: This was your sister's idea. Why are you challenging her husband?
Johnny: Because you're bad for her. Claudia got into this marriage as a business arrangement. Now she's stuck with a man who doesn't respect her. Doesn't even like her.
Sonny: You don't know anything about anything, you know that?
Johnny: I don't want to see my sister hurt.
Sonny: She's a lot stronger than you think, Johnny.
Johnny: She puts up a good front. She's more vulnerable than you think. You're head of this organization now. You don't need Claudia anymore. Let her go.
Sonny: Okay, you're missing a piece of the puzzle. Your sister doesn't want to leave me.
Johnny: So you'll leave her. Better now than when she's more invested, right?
Sonny: What would Claudia think if she knew you were here?
Johnny: I'll tell her the truth. That I'm trying to protect her. You don't want Claudia. You want the power. Isn't that right? So what's it worth to you to get your hands on all of it and take them off my sister?
Claudia: Yes, the party tonight was my idea. Sonny wants to secure his position. I thought, what better way to help him do that than by putting on a show?
Jason: Okay, why do you want to help Sonny all of a sudden?
Claudia: He's my husband. What benefits him benefits me.
Jason: Well, you used to think of Sonny as an enemy. You didn't like him, you didn't trust him.
Claudia: Now I do. And I owe him.
Jason: For what?
Claudia: Jason, come on. You were on the phone with him when he defused a bomb. He's -- look, he could have left me to die more than one time.
Claudia: And he didn't. So that's a big deal to me.
Jason: But he did a lot of things to cross you. Is that so easy to forgive?
Claudia: No, but we're -- you know. We're -- we've pretty much gotten past that.
Jason: What is "pretty much"? What is that?
Claudia: Can you just put aside your suspicions for, like, three minutes here? Maybe I have his best interests at heart. I'm his wife. You're his best friend, so we should be able to work together.
Jason: I told Sonny I'd show up. I'll be there.
Claudia: Good. Nice. See you at seven.
Winnifred: Stone Cold will not be pleased that we've gone against his most specific orders.
Spinelli: He demanded that we remain in hiding. Here we sit.
Winnifred: Working on the location of the incriminating flash drive.
Spinelli: And when I have unearthed its whereabouts, I shall venture forth once more to obtain my freedom.
Winnifred: Does it not trouble you that minimista was equally vehement concerning the Jackal's need to remain safe in this apartment?
Spinelli: With all apologies to Machiavelli, the end justifies the means.
Winnifred: She will lay blame on me. She thinks -- she thinks I have designs on the Jackal.
Spinelli: You know -- Maximista is -- she's fueled by her emotions. She doesn't comprehend the cybersanct threads that connect us.
Winnifred: Oh. Yeah, it is indeed a most powerful and mysterious bond. Which leads me to express my own concerns. Stone Cold was right. The Jackal takes his life into his hands when he departs these premises.
Spinelli: The same can be said for remaining stationary. Hey. I found what we seek. The flash drive is being sequestered in the security wing of the local federal building.
Winnifred: Oh, security clearance?
Spinelli: Grade seven.
Winnifred: I am but a newly grade five.
Spinelli: Then we must gain re-entry into Agent Rayner's office and upgrade your status.
Winnifred: Okay. Agent Rayner is pulling all men that he can spare from the local office to mount -- a close surveillance of Mr. Sir's residence this evening.
Spinelli: When, while he and his minions are otherwise engaged --
Winnifred and Spinelli: I shall have the opportunity to --
Spinelli: You must not attempt a solo effort.
Winnifred: No, I shall not be party in placing the Jackal in danger.
Spinelli: I will be secure in my disguise.
Winnifred: Not to be hurtful, but that disguise is quite transparent.
Spinelli: Well, then, I shall don a superior one.
Patrick: I didn't do anything to make Robin run away. I've loved her and supported her, but her behavior's gotten more and more erratic.
Mac: Don't put this on Robin.
Patrick: Mac, Robin's got real problems, okay? She's in trouble. She's got postpartum depression.
Mac: That's a lie. I've seen Robin almost every day, all right? She is a happy, well-adjusted mother.
Patrick: Yeah, I know. She probably is around you. But when she's with Emma, it's not the case.
Mac: Stop trying to shift the blame, okay?
Patrick: Nobody's to blame here.
Mac: Patrick, I would do anything for Robin, and if I knew for one moment that she was sick I would do everything in my power to help her. But she loves Emma. She wanted a child more than anything.
Patrick: I know. And now she can barely bring herself to pick Emma up.
Mac: You know, you're just trying to make yourself out to look like the good guy. I know better. I'm going to do something about it.
Patrick: What the hell does that mean?
[Knock at door]
Maxie: Hi. I got your message. Did you guys find Robin?
Mac: No, not yet. But I've got the department working on it. And until then, I'm taking Emma out of this house.
Patrick: No, hey, Mac. Nobody's taking my daughter from me. You concentrate on getting Robin some medical attention.
Mac: There is nothing wrong with Robin.
Maxie: No, Patrick is right. There is something wrong with Robin.
Maxie: I noticed something was up the night of the hospital crisis. Johnny and I found Robin's minivan broken down on the side of the road, and then Robin herself wandering through the snow. She had no idea where Emma was. She was acting like she didn't even know she had a baby.
Mac: Well, she did the smart thing. It was freezing out; she wrapped her up and put her in a sheltered place.
Maxie: Robin didn't remember what she did with her baby, Mac. Her own sick baby.
Mac: She was distraught and disoriented.
Maxie: Well, then we went to General Hospital, and she asked Johnny and I to take Emma to Mercy. Me and Johnny. I mean, even though Emma’s temperature was through the roof.
Mac: Maxie, Robin wanted to help at General Hospital, okay? Robin knew Emma was in good hands.
Maxie: There's times that I've been here and Emma’s been crying, and Robin won't even touch her. One time she made me feed Emma. I mean, that wasn't a pretty sight, but somebody had to do it.
Mac: Robin just wants you to be more involved.
Maxie: Mac, I love you. You have got to get your head out of the sand.
Mac: I don't want to jump to conclusions.
Maxie: Okay, Robin came to my office a couple of days ago wanting to take me to lunch. I made an innocent comment about Emma and she completely took it the wrong way, saying how she was more than a mother, she was also a great doctor with a good career.
Mac: Robin is occasionally on overload. What new mother isn't?
Maxie: Yeah, that sounds like something Robin would say. She has a way to justify all of it. I've tried really hard to be supportive, I've pushed down all my suspicions, but now Robin left. I don't know, Mac. This isn't about Patrick. This is about Robin. And when she comes back, the only way to support her is to make her face it. She needs help.
Mac: Uh, it's hard to believe.
Patrick: Mac, I didn't believe it, either. Listen, I went back and forth making excuses, thinking it would get better, but it didn't. It's a genuine illness. Robin has postpartum depression, and we have to help her before she does something that we're all going to regret.
Robin: So, how many fingers do you have left?
Brad: It looks like I've got nine and a half. Ruthie and I were worried about you.
Robin: Yeah, sorry I took off like that.
Brad: Was something the matter?
Robin: I just realized I had this conference call with suppliers in California.
Brad: Did you make it back in time?
Robin: I did, I did. Anyway, now that that's done, I was thinking if that invitation to go out is still open, I'd like to take you up on it.
[Knock at door]
Jason: Spinelli's not here.
Agent Rayner: Right now, I'm more interested in your target, Sonny Corinthos, who happens to be having a big mob summit tonight and making no secret of it, either. Rivals, law enforcement, FBI. He's practically sending out engraved invitations.
Jason: Oh, maybe you should go.
Agent Rayner: Well, he's obviously daring us to do something, and we will. Just not what he thinks.
Agent Rayner: Sonny will be looking for the enemy lurking in the shadows, but our man -- our man will be hiding in plain sight. And that man will be you, and you'll be wearing a wire.
Claudia: I found something fabulous to wear, but I'm going to need help putting it on and taking it off.
Sonny: Well, before you do that, you might want to get Johnny’s approval.
Claudia: Why do you say that?
Sonny: Because he was here when I came home, waiting for me.
Claudia: So he's going to come tonight?
Sonny: Well, it depends on me. He said the only way he would show up is if I divorced you.
Jax: I need you to close the pool for us immediately.
Olivia: Need I remind you that we're running a hotel here?
Olivia: We've got guests swimming, children happily playing.
Jax: Yes, but my wife would like to take a swim in private, and, you know, since we own the hotel and all that, just comp them a weekend or something and make them happy.
Olivia: Why do I have the feeling that there's something in this for the groom as well? Hmm?
Jax: And I'll take a look at those business matters that you mentioned before.
Olivia: Ah, yes. We have to RSVP to that invitation to speak at the management conference, and this came for you. Do you recognize those markings?
Jax: I'm not sure, why?
Olivia: Because I think I've seen them somewhere before.
Carly: You ready for our swim?
Jax: Yeah, we're just clearing the pool right now.
Jax: Let's get a look at this first.
