Jason: No, I did what you asked me to do.
Agent Rayner: No, you went to a mob summit and you got Sonny on tape discussing coffee.
Jason: That's Sonny's business.
Agent Rayner: You tipped him into not saying anything incriminating within range of your wire, and now you're out of options. You give me solid evidence of RICO violations committed by Sonny Corinthos or I will put you and Damien Spinelli in prison for life.
Jason: I've got nothing to say without my attorney.
Agent Rayner: Your attorney is not going to save you now. We have proof of multiple, multiple offenses by Damien Spinelli, including treason, for hacking into classified government sites, and now evidence against him is evidence against you.
Carly: Why wait?
Jax: You want to watch TV? It is our wedding night, remember?
Carly: You left me here, bored.
Jax: Yes, and I came back with something very appropriate.
Carly: I can be bought.
Jax: Yeah, I love that part about you.
Carly: Jax, it's beautiful.
Jax: It's a reminder that it's now our time.
Carly: No one can take it away from us.
Sonny: What do I desperately need to know, Ric?
Ric: Well, it concerns someone in this room.
Sonny: You're going to warn me about one of my guests?
Ric: No, actually it's information that I came upon earlier. Look, here's your lovely wife. Claudia, come here. I think you'll be very interested to hear what I have to say.
Sonny: What does Claudia have to do with this?
Brad: For the record, I had a great time tonight.
Robin: Thanks, me too. Thank you for all of it.
Brad: And if you change your mind about leaving, I would love to see you again.
Robin: You really are one of the sweetest guys I've ever met.
Brad: Sweet? Is that a compliment?
Robin: Yes, of course it is. You showed up when I needed you, and I'm really grateful for that.
Brad: It wasn't exactly hardship.
Robin: Oh, come on. I bet you wish that you'd gone to the game with your guys.
Brad: I can see my friends anytime, but a beautiful, amazing, intelligent girl walks into your life, well, I'm not going to pass up on that.
Robin: You're not too disappointed?
Brad: It sounds like you have someone special back home, and if you're not ready to be with another man, I can respect that. So, have a good life, Nancy. You deserve it, all right?
Robin: Thank you. You, too, Brad.
Brad: All right.
Agent Rayner: Spinelli was acting on your behalf, and you profited from every file he hacked into. Now, given your rap sheet, there is not a judge or jury in this country that wouldn't convict you.
Jason: File charges against me. You leave Spinelli out of it.
Agent Rayner: No, no, too late for that. When you sabotaged that wire you were wearing, you gave up any goodwill I had for your protégé.
Jason: I got you Anthony Zacchara.
Agent Rayner: You were working for Corinthos for more than a decade. You knew damn well he was the target of my investigation, so you didn't want to cooperate. So, I will settle for you and your protégé.
Jason: You told me that Spinelli's no criminal. Putting him away gets you nothing.
Agent Rayner: I got you. I know it's not as high profile as Corinthos, but putting away his right-hand man, well, that just might be enough to convince somebody deep inside the organization to start talking.
Man: Only authorized personnel are allowed. Now you show me your I.D. before I call security.
Sam: I'm sorry. I didn't catch your name.
Agent Compton: Agent Compton.
Sam: Agent Compton, what gives you the authority to question me?
Agent Compton: Your pass code is right in your hand. Let me see it.
Winnifred: Agent Samuels, there you are. I've been looking for you all over.
Spinelli: Well, the Jackal's had a stressful evening. He hasn't eaten anything all day, so his blood sugar is low. So, I'm just not thinking clearly.
Lulu: When you said, like, Maxie was going --
Maxie: No, no, no. Just leave him alone. Spinelli doesn't like all these "Crimson" events. He sees me so much as touch another guy's arm, he blows it way out of proportion.
Spinelli: You might be exagger --
Maxie: Just admit it, Spinelli. You don't like that I have to spend all this time with Johnny.
Spinelli: Actually, yeah, the proximity --
Maxie: So, keep it to yourself so you don't go around hurting Lulu's feelings for no reason.
[Knock at door]
Johnny: I got the welcoming committee.
Lulu: So, it's official, right? You're back in the mob? Because if so, that means that you won't have to spend as much time with Maxie anymore, right?
Claudia: Do we really have to get into this right now? We just threw a very successful party.
Ric: And he has every right to know who he can trust.
Sonny: What the hell are you two talking about?
Claudia: He's always working an angle, Ric.
Ric: I didn't have to look very far, did I?
Claudia: We just threw a great party. My brother, my father's old lieutenants, representatives of the five families were here, Ric. They all endorsed Sonny. That is good for all of us, even you. So, do you really want to be stupid enough to rock the boat with your petty infighting?
Sonny: Infighting? Is that what this is about?
Ric: Yeah, in a way, a little bit, and I see no reason at all not to tell you.
Carly: What are you thinking?
Jax: Just thinking how lucky we are that we're back together.
Carly: Me, too.
Jax: You know, we can't take anything for granted. We have to cherish each minute.
Carly: We will. I promise. I want you to know I take full credit for our reunion.
Jax: Really, I don't get any?
Carly: Nope, none. Who was the stubborn one? Who was the one that insisted we belonged together and who was the one who told you you were throwing away the best thing that's ever happened to you and who wouldn't take no for an answer?
Carly: Thank you.
Jax: And for that I am eternally grateful, but --
Carly: But what?
Jax: I never stopped loving you.
Carly: Thank you. Thank you for giving me a second chance and for somehow finding it in your heart to forgive me.
Jax: Hey, you forgave me for a few things as well. God knows I'm not perfect. I've made my share of mistakes. I'm probably going to make more.
Carly: That's life. We've learned that, right?
Jax: Let's make a pact. Whatever happens, we figure out a way through it, okay?
Carly: We just made that pact by renewing our vows. It's a clean slate for us. It's going to work this time.
Jax: Right. For better or worse, till death do us part.
Sonny: I let you in on one meeting and you're already playing games.
Ric: You know, you should value me more than you do, Sonny. I have a lot of talents, you know? I have intellect. I'm loyal, believe it or not. Look, I have more knowledge and experience to be useful to this sacred Corinthos circle.
Sonny: We already had this conversation. I told you where you stand.
Ric: I think you are missing an opportunity.
Claudia: I think he made himself clear.
Ric: Well, maybe he doesn't have all the information.
Sonny: What information? Please, somebody tell me.
Ric: Look, I worked more closely with Anthony Zacchara than anybody knew. He didn't share any sensitive information with you because, you know, he didn't trust you and, of course, you probably didn't want to listen. My father Trevor probably knew more than anybody because he was his lawyer and right-hand man for years, but then of course, he's dead.
Sonny: So, you're the only one in the Zacchara organization that knows his secrets? Is that what you're saying?
Sonny: Precisely why I let you in the door.
Ric: Really? I thought that was just to yank my chain or show me what I'm not going to get.
Sonny: Well, of course, but, you know, that, too.
Ric: So, where am I, Sonny? Am I in or am I out? You know what? I got a better idea. Claudia, what's your opinion?
Claudia: Does it matter?
Ric: Does it matter? Did you see the way Sonny treated you tonight? He values your input. He paraded you around here as his wife and partner. Come on. So, I ask you, do you think I'm a valuable asset to the cause or not?
Johnny: Did I miss something here?
Lulu: No, no, I did. I actually believed you wanted to be out of the mob.
Maxie: Maybe you guys should, like, go to your room and talk about this or something.
Lulu: Don't tell me where I should talk about this.
Johnny: Lulu, I have been honest with you.
Lulu: Except for the part where I came home and you were all dressed and ready to go to Sonny's mob party with Claudia.
Johnny: I told you she needed me there.
Lulu: Johnny, what bothers me is hypocrisy, okay? We've had, like, a hundred conversations about how you didn't want to be a part of the mob and then all of a sudden there's the party --
Johnny: Claudia is in trouble, Lulu, and I'm going to do everything I can to make sure I can help her out. I'm sorry you got a problem with that.
Lulu: Don't put this on me. If you want to close the garage and go back into the mob, be my guest, but if you do, don't bitch and moan about being trapped in a life you claim you hate.
Johnny: Don't worry. I'm not going to waste any of my breath by trying to explain anything to you. There's no point.
Lulu: Thank you for being honest.
Maxie: No, no, no, no. You need to go back and tell her that you didn't mean that.
Spinelli: The Jackal is in accord. You must go reconcile with fair Lulu before the misunderstanding tears you asunder and you set your smoldering sights on fair Maximista.
Spinelli: I do not deny it. I know that you two shared heated lips and brinked a close encounter of the carnal kind in the garage of illicit passion and it must not happen again.
Diane: My client has been wrongfully detained. You are guilty of harassment, violations of civil rights, actions which are of course illegal. So, unless you want to spend the next --
Agent Rayner: Tell you what. You give me all the attitude you want, but I'm placing Jason Morgan and Damien Spinelli under arrest.
Diane: On what grounds?
Agent Rayner: Espionage, fraud, conspiracy, treason, and multiple lesser included offenses committed by Mr. Spinelli on behalf of Mr. Morgan.
Johnny: Why would you tell Spinelli, of all people, that you and I kissed in the garage that night?
Maxie: Because Spinelli was about to go out of the country, and I figured the only way I could stop him would be to warn him that I would probably have sex with you if he wasn't here to stop me.
Johnny: This is so twisted.
Spinelli: No, please do not speak harshly to Maximista.
Maxie: It's okay, Spinelli. I don't regret anything I had to do to keep you in my life.
Spinelli: Maximista shoulders responsibility, but most certainly this vespid preyed on your vulnerabilities with his calculating charms.
Johnny: You know nothing about it, Spinelli.
Spinelli: I know that the original blonde one would be crushed if she learned of your infidelity.
Maxie: No, no one is telling Lulu about this, right?
Spinelli: I would never do anything intentionally to cause her heartbreak.
Johnny: She might be better off if she knew the truth anyway.
Maxie: This is getting way out of hand.
Johnny: Let's face it. She and I never stood a chance in the first place.
Spinelli: Just a word of warning, if you and fair Lulu do decide to part ways, the road to Maximista will most certainly be blocked by me.
[Knock at door]
Maxie: Hide, hide, hide, hide. Johnny and I will cover for you.
Man: We got the whole building under surveillance. Surrender yourself and no one has to get hurt.
Spinelli: It is time for the Jackal to pay for his crimes.
Man: Damien Spinelli, you're under arrest. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
Carly: You know the best thing about owning a hotel? You get to raid the kitchen whenever you want.
Jax: I think chocolate mousse was on the menu tonight.
Carly: You read my mind. Do you want some?
Jax: Actually, I'll take whatever you get me. Surprise me.
Carly: For the rest of your life.
Jax: Thank you.
Jerry: While everyone knows that Ian shot the bullet that lodged in little Michael’s brain, almost no one knows that we were both working on orders from Claudia Zacchara. I'm sorry, Jax. Even I am ashamed of the part I played in little Michael’s tragedy, and I regret the pain that this will undoubtedly cause you and Carly.
Sonny: You want Claudia to convince me to trust you?
Ric: Well, I got the impression that you value and respect her opinion. So, why shouldn't I ask?
Sonny: She doesn't seem too happy with you these days.
Ric: You've got nothing to worry about, do you? So, go ahead, Claudia, the floor is all yours.
Claudia: I despise you. I think you're a parasite.
Elizabeth: Did you find Robin?
Elizabeth: But she's not with you.
Patrick: Yeah, that's because she's still in a hotel room in Rochester.
Elizabeth: God, did you guys fight?
Patrick: I didn't talk to her. I thought it'd be a little tactless considering she was making out with another guy.
Elizabeth: What? No, that's got to be a mistake.
Patrick: No, Elizabeth, I'm the one that made a mistake. I'm here dealing with Robin's postpartum depression by arguing with her family, baring my soul to her friends, taking care of our baby girl, and she's dealing with it by sleeping with another guy.
Jerry: Carly was always ambivalent at best about me. In all fairness, I put her through hell at the Metro Court. If she should find out that I was partly to blame for Michael getting shot, it might alter her feelings towards you. After all, motherly love isn't entirely rational. So, hear me, Jax. What happened to Michael isn't your fault. It's Claudia Zacchara's. It's mine. And most of all, that idiot Ian Devlin, who is very Lucky to be dead at this point. You're the one person in the world that I most care about, Jax. Now that you know the truth, maybe you can find a way to avert disaster.
Ric: Well, I was hoping for a more positive endorsement, but if we're going to call each other names --
Claudia: Hey, I wasn't even finished. I think you're an opportunist, and a traitor. And I think you'd sell you own family to the highest bidder.
Ric: Really? This from the girl who would sell her father out to solidify her marriage?
Claudia: You don't have a loyal bone in your body, Ric.
Ric: Claudia, I came here with very good intentions. Should I be rethinking them?
Sonny: Claudia's not saying anything I don't already know. Why should I suddenly trust you?
Claudia: You shouldn't. But I think you can use him.
Ric: Use me? I don't know how to take that. Should I be flattered or should I take that as an insult?
Claudia: I watched the way that you worked this room, with your very own agenda. Nothing upset your equilibrium. Then I noticed that my father's lieutenants ate it up. And they clearly like you much more than they ever liked your father, which is why I think, Sonny, that we should find a place for Ric.
Sonny: What? You didn't want to invite him. Now you're letting him get close?
Claudia: I don't think you should trust him, but I think that my father probably did give him valuable information that he didn't tell anyone else, or else Ric found it on his own.
Ric: Yeah, you know me. I have a way of things falling into my lap.
Sonny: Because you grab them and put them there.
Ric: No, because I have a very distinct talent for being invisible, Sonny. Invisible people have a way of seeing and hearing things that others don't. You'd be surprised of the kind of secrets I could expose for you.
Sonny: I'll think about it.
Ric: That's all I ask.
Sam: I am so sorry, Agent Leeds. I guess I got turned around. I mean the floor plan here is way more confusing than the one in Seattle.
Winnifred: This case is high priority, and time is critical. Meet me in my office.
Sam: You got it.
Winnifred: I need you to go to the PCPD and pick up files. I'll walk you out and give you the particulars. Let's go, Agent Compton.
Maxie: This is a disaster. The FBI is never going to let Spinelli go again. This is all my fault.
Johnny: No, it's not.
Maxie: Yes, it is. He flew to Los Angeles. He had a new I.D. He was all set to leave the country and be safe. And I practically forced him to come back with me. Now he's going to be thrown in jail for the rest of his life, because I acted like a selfish brat. As usual, I only thought about myself.
Johnny: It was Spinelli's choice to come back to Port Charles.
Maxie: Just like it was yours to go to that party tonight?
Johnny: I wasn't going to let my sister down.
Maxie: So, you let Lulu down instead? That makes a lot of sense.
Johnny: Well, look, Maxie, my whole life I've been trying to break free of the mob. Yes, part of me was also doing that for Lulu, but when Claudia married Sonny, she completely ignored the danger she was putting herself in.
Maxie: Claudia makes her own choices.
Johnny: I know. But that doesn't mean that I'm not going to do everything I can to protect her.
Maxie: That's how I feel about Spinelli. But how am I supposed to fight off the FBI? Spinelli's life is over, so is mine.
Patrick: You know, it's ironic. When Robin and I first got together, she gave me so much grief about chasing women. Now she's the one cheating on me.
Elizabeth: It's a little more complicated than that.
Patrick: Yeah, you know, Elizabeth, you're right. It is a little more complicated. See, Robin has HIV and I wonder if she even told the guy. You know, maybe she just thought she'd keep it quiet, make it a little more simple. Who knows what's going on in her head?
Elizabeth: Patrick, I know this is upsetting for you.
Patrick: Wow, really, you think?
Elizabeth: I'm not trying to defend Robin, but I did read all that information on post-partum. It's not uncommon for women with this condition to have an affair.
Patrick: Is that supposed to make me feel better, Elizabeth?
Elizabeth: No, but it's supposed to help you understand that it's not about rejecting you. It's a symptom of a serious illness.
Patrick: Okay, I see, so I'm not supposed to take it personally, right? Is that it? Just like you didn't take it personally when Lucky cheated on you when he was addicted to pills?
Patrick: I'm sorry. I was out of line.
Elizabeth: It's okay. Actually, it's a really good comparison. I know exactly how you feel right now.
Patrick: Sick to my stomach.
Elizabeth: And like the world as you know it has shattered into a million pieces.
Patrick: Of all the things that I thought I was going to confront when I got to that hotel, this never crossed my mind.
Elizabeth: You know, women with postpartum, they feel overwhelmed. They feel like they're failures as wives and mothers, so they create this fantasy life where none of it exists. They can be whomever they want.
Patrick: Clinically, intellectually, I get all that. But I can't get the image of Robin making out with another guy out of my head. I don't know if I'm going to be able to get it out of my head.
Elizabeth: When she comes back, you guys...
Patrick: If she comes back.
Elizabeth: She will.
Patrick: Come here, sweetheart.
Elizabeth: Patrick, she loves you, and she loves Emma. The two of you are what she always wanted, a wonderful husband and a healthy baby. That's part of the problem, is the unrealistic belief that everything should be perfect.
Patrick: Yeah, well, she sure took a sledgehammer to that notion, didn't she?
Elizabeth: When Robin comes home, the two of you can discuss it.
Patrick: No. Elizabeth, no. I'm not going to talk about this, and neither can you. Nobody can know that I found Robin with another man, especially Robin.
Maxie: What am I doing? You have problems of your own.
Johnny: Claudia's the one I'm worried about. She thought she could handle being married to Sonny, but she's in way over her head.
Maxie: Is that why you went tonight?
Johnny: I wanted to make sure everything was okay. I know Lulu thought that I was jumping back in the mob the first chance I got, but I still want my own life.
Maxie: When we were waiting out that snow storm in the garage, and you were telling me how your dreams were to open up a car repair business, I don't think I've ever seen you happier.
Johnny: I've always loved cars. Working on them makes the time go by, you know? I'm not going to give that up for the mob.
Maxie: Please tell Lulu that.
Johnny: Maybe it's better off if she doesn't know.
Maxie: So, here we are, back to the same old story. You don't deserve Lulu, and I don't deserve Spinelli. I don't care, Johnny. I want him anyway. And I'm terrified I'm going to lose him. I've left Jason and Diane messages. Nobody is calling me back.
Johnny: Try not to assume something worst.
Maxie: Sometimes the worst happens. Do you want to count the parade of those I've loved and lost? No. But if I lose Spinelli, that's it for me. I'm not going to get attached to anyone else. My heart will be closed for business.
Johnny: You know Spinelli wouldn't want that for you.
Maxie: I don't care. All the effort and energy it takes to get to know someone, it's a big waste of time. I mean, I am who I am, with or without Spinelli. Without him, at least I could be as petty and selfish and trampy as I want and help myself to anything or anyone I feel like, including you.
Diane: Your allegations are completely unsubstantiated. This entire case has been fabricated out of smoke and mirrors.
Spinelli: Stone Cold, the Jackal offers his deepest apologies --
Agent Rayner: Mr. Spinelli, what a pleasure. I hope you didn't think we couldn't find him when we wanted.
Spinelli: You warned me, but I wouldn't listen.
Diane: Mr. Spinelli, you will refrain from further commentary.
Spinelli: But I have failed Stone Cold and all who believe in me.
Agent Rayner: Well, Mr. Morgan failed you, too. Because when push came to shove, he chose sending you to prison over giving evidence against Sonny Corinthos.
Spinelli: I'm ready to offer a full confession that he I acted alone.
Jason: No, be quiet.
Spinelli: In no way, shape, or form was I hacking under Jason Morgan’s orders or for his benefit.
Jason: Diane, can you do something?
Agent Rayner: She's not going to be able to help.
Diane: On the contrary. I have yet to see one shred of this so-called evidence against Mr. Spinelli, if it even exists.
Agent Rayner: Oh, it exists all right.
Diane: Then prove it. You bring it to this office right now, or I will file a writ, and we can take this whole thing to a judge.
Patrick: You getting sleepy yet? No? Well, unfortunately your only other option is to listen to me. I don't think you're going to want to do that, because I'm pretty confused right now. See, I fell in love with your mommy. I gave up my bachelor ways for a wife, a baby, a white picket fence. I thought happiness was going to automatically follow, but I was wrong, wasn't I?
Patrick: You know, your mommy has everything she wanted. But now it looks like she doesn't want it. She took off in search of something. And I don't know what it is. And I don't think she does either.
Patrick: I don't want none of this to touch you, okay? I promise I'm going to take care of you no matter what happens.
Robin: I'm home.
Agent Rayner: Spare me you legal gymnastics. We've got enough evidence to put these two away for the rest of their natural lives.
Man: Agent Rayner.
Agent Rayner: You've got copies of the evidence for Ms. Miller here?
Man: Actually, no.
Agent Rayner: What?
Man: Could I have a moment with you outside?
Agent Rayner: What's wrong? Where's the evidence? Give her copies.
Man: It's gone.
Agent Rayner: That's impossible.
Man: The evidence on file in our system has been corrupted by a tapeworm.
Agent Rayner: You did this. I don't know how, but you just made things a whole hell of a lot worse for yourself and Mr. Morgan here. The evidence hasn't disappeared. It's backed up on a flash drive.
Man: We already checked. The flash drive is blank. I'm sorry, sir.
Agent Rayner: I want the name of the last person who used his pass card to check into that storage room.
Man: That would be you, sir. Your card was entered into the system.
Agent Rayner: You can go.
Agent Rayner: It was all a diversion. That's why you agreed to wear that wire to Sonny's house.
Diane: Am I to understand that there is no evidence to support my client's arrest? No. In that case, all charges against my client will be dropped, or I will petition the court to see to it that --
Agent Rayner: They're free to go. For now. But I'm not backing off this. I'm not backing off of either one of them.
Claudia: I thought you were coming to bed.
Sonny: Yeah, in a while.
Claudia: It was a good night, huh? I mean, I think we pulled it off.
Sonny: You know something? I just -- I just can't help thinking Ric pulled something off, too.
Claudia: What do you mean?
Sonny: What's going on with you?
Claudia: Nothing's going on. My father always said you keep your friends close, and you keep your enemies closer. I mean, look, we use Ric. We let him have some little small, tiny piece of power, and let him feed us information.
Sonny: If you think it's that simple, you don't know my brother.
Claudia: I'm playing the odds. The odds are, the happier Ric is, the less dangerous he is.
Sonny: Like our marriage.
Claudia: I'm not the enemy, Sonny.
Sonny: You were not long ago.
Claudia: Okay, but now I'm not. I'm on your side, and I don't regret that. I hope you don't.
Sonny: No, I mean, you know -- no.
Claudia: Well, good, because with a little luck and some trust, we just keep getting better and better starting tonight.
Jax: I'm right here.
Carly: What's wrong?
Jax: Nothing. I'm happier than I've ever been.
Carly: Me, too.
Jax: Nothing is ever going to come between us again. I'll make sure of that.
Patrick: Emma's fine, by the way.
Patrick: Robin, I know where you were. Mac put out an APB.
Patrick: I was going to come and find you, but then I --
Robin: I'm glad you didn't. It's better that I came back on my own. I was going to meet you for dinner. I came to this crossroads. Left to the lake, right to the highway, and I don't know, something came over me. And I just turned right. I wanted to be out on the open road, away from everything that was weighing me down, making me feel like a failure. I was just in the moment, and I wasn't thinking. I know it sounds crazy.
Patrick: Why did you stop in Rochester?
Robin: It was random. I just stopped at some bar and talked to a bartender.
Robin: A woman named Ruth. She had a beautiful baby girl. I told her my name was Nancy Green. I don't know how I came up with that. I just invented this whole new identity, no strings, no responsibilities. I told her that I wasn't married, that I didn't have any kids. That I was a pharmaceutical sales rep from San Francisco.
Patrick: So, that's the only person you talked to all night?
Robin: Yeah. Then everything started to unravel. I got a hotel room, and I looked at myself in the mirror and I didn't see Robin the wife, the mom, the doctor, and it really scared me. I think I have postpartum depression, and I really need help.
