Elizabeth: Hey, did you hear they moved up the reopening date for General Hospital? A couple more weeks, we'll be going back.

Robin: Wow, moving all those patients is going to be a nightmare.

Elizabeth: Yes, but at least we'll have our own lockers. And daycare will be downstairs, not halfway across town. It sounds like heaven to me.

Robin: A good night sleep sounds like heaven.

Elizabeth: Is Emma not sleeping well?

Robin: Is that a mom thing? Does everything I say have to be about my daughter?

Elizabeth: I'm sorry, no.

Robin: I'm sorry. I feel like I haven't slept in days.

Elizabeth: Why don't you go home and take a nap before your consult with Dr. Kendricks?

Patrick: Actually, Robin, you know what? I can take over your consult. You have your first session with Dr. Brown, remember?

Sonny: I got your message. Is something wrong with Michael?

Carly: He moved his hand. I saw it with my own eyes. He moved his hand, Sonny. I think he's coming back to us.

Olivia: Hey.

Jax: Hey.

Olivia: You wanted to see me?

Jax: Yes, yes, I need you to cover my meetings for the hotel for the next couple of days. And anything else on my calendar, postpone it indefinitely.

Olivia: Okay.

Jax: And if Dr. Hensen's office calls, put them through immediately.

Olivia: Right.

Jax: She's the one that came up with the medical procedure that Michael was tested for. She's thinking about putting him in a clinical trial.

Olivia: Wow, I thought the test showed that he wasn't a good candidate for that procedure.

Jax: Yeah, but his hand moved, so it could be a delayed reaction. We're trying to convince her to come to Port Charles to examine him.

Olivia: Right.

Jax: Yeah.

Olivia: Jax, I'm sorry, I got to ask you this as a friend. Are you doing this because you think Michael really has a chance, or is this guilt because your brother was partly responsible for Michael being in a coma in the first place?

Jerry's voice: Claudia, darling, congratulations. You found yet another one of my little missives. Such a clever girl --

Claudia: I can hear Jerry from upstairs.

Jerry's voice: Assuming you're the one who's watching, of course.

Ric: Good morning, Claudia.

Claudia: What are you doing? Everyone in the house can hear that.

Ric: Well, it's a good thing Sonny isn't home, or is he?

Claudia: You know he's not here or you wouldn't be doing this.

Ric: Oh, you thought I was still going to be in the hospital, didn't you? You ever had your stomach pumped before, Claudia? It is such a memorable experience. I got to tell you. Along about the time that the contents of my stomach was being pumped through a tube that was stuck up my nose and down my throat, I'm thinking to myself, "Ric, you know, it's time to change the rules. I am going to show that DVD to Sonny." He is going to kill you, literally.

Claudia: You know what? You really shouldn't blame me because you got drunk and passed out.

Ric: You know what the doctor said? He said I had ingested enough sleeping pills to choke a horse, and coupled with the scotch that it was mixed with, I am lucky to have survived.

Claudia: I guess someone doesn't like you. You should be thanking me for getting you to the hospital on time.

Ric: Well, the only thing that I remember -- and mind you, this is very, very vague -- was a point where I said, "in the event of my death," and then you were straddling me, not in a good way.

Claudia: You must have been dreaming.

Ric: Oh, come on, Claudia. Do you think that it wouldn't occur to me to make a copy to be sent to Sonny in the event of my death?

Claudia: I wouldn't know.

Ric: Okay, fine, then I'll just relax and I'll wait for Sonny to get home. While I'm doing that, could you do me a favor and get me a cup of coffee? And please, hold the sleeping pills.

Jax: First of all, no one needs to know that Jerry is involved in any of this. We're clear on that, right? Especially Carly?

Olivia: I absolutely agree.

Jax: Good. That's why I destroyed the DVD that Jerry sent me. You're absolutely right. Some things should remain buried. I want to focus on the positive. I want to focus on getting Dr. Hensen here so she can look at Michael, and then I'm even thinking about moving him to General Hospital after it reopens.

Olivia: Wow, moving him out of permanent care, that's a pretty big step.

Jax: Yeah, but Carly was right. See, the permanent care facility is not set up for people that are recovering.

Olivia: And you think that Michael's recovering, now, al of a sudden?

Jax: He moved his hand, okay?

Olivia: Okay, Jax, I don't know how to say this. Do you think that you could be overcompensating just a little bit here?

Jax: I'm the reason that Jerry was in town when all of this went down. I covered for him even after I knew all the terrible things he'd done. I'm definitely partly responsible for putting Michael where he is right now.

Olivia: I see, but you're making some really big choices here, okay? You're moving Michael. You're bringing in this doctor. You're neglecting your own business. Are you doing this because you really think that Michael has a shot, or is this just to ease your conscience?

Jax: Carly needs my support. What difference does it make why I'm helping her?

Olivia: Well, it could make a big difference if there really is no hope.

Carly: Jax and I were leaving his room, and I went back to turn off the light. Just as I was flipping the switch, I saw his hand move.

Sonny: No one else saw it?

Carly: No. Patrick thinks it's just a reflex, but I don't believe that. I know our son is fighting to come back to us.

Sonny: Is that what you told Patrick?

Carly: I told Patrick I want a second opinion.

Sonny: He's a good doctor, though.

Carly: I know. He's a great doctor, but I think he's a little distracted right now with everything that's going on with Robin, and I don't think he's considering every possibility.

Sonny: Okay, you got to understand something, okay? He was involved from the start. I don't think it's fair to rule him out.

Carly: Okay, listen to me. Michael and I made a deal that he was going to fight as hard as he could to respond to that test, and I know that's what he's doing.

Sonny: I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm just saying that the odds aren't with Michael.

Carly: I don't care about odds. I know Michael is waking up.

Kate: Excuse me. Did you just say that Michael might be waking up?

Maxie: Clarice, I don't know what to tell you, okay? It was really crowded and we just couldn't find you. There will be other club openings. Could you please email me the list of models for the shoot?

Lulu: Kate Howard’s office.

Maxie: No, it's not that big of a deal. I need you to do a couple of things.

Lulu: Not right now.

Maxie: Not you, Clarice, Lulu. Here's a list of things Kate needs. Please don't come back until you've gotten all of them. Yelling is unprofessional. I'm hanging up now. What are you doing here? I haven't called you for the fitting yet.

Lulu: Picture this -- Johnny's here to see me. Try to imagine what that would be like.

Johnny: What do you need?

Lulu: I have a solution to this whole P.R. dating thing. No more excuses. No more misunderstandings. Everybody is going to win.

Ethan: Well, that sounds promising. Hello, all.

Maxie: What is he doing here?

Ethan: Oh, you're that bloke from the Haunted Star that was fighting with Lulu, aren't you?

Lulu: My boyfriend.

Ethan: Ethan Lovett. It's nice to meet you.

Maxie: We're working.

Lulu: I invited Ethan here. 41-Regular.

Maxie: 40-Long.

Lulu: The paparazzi won't even know. And he's not even that cute, so he won't upstage the dress.

Maxie: You want Ethan to be my date for the club? Are you out of your mind?

Robin: Listen, I am not trying to avoid my appointment with Dr. Brown. It's just that Dr. Kendricks wants me to take a look at those pictures so he can make the decision about the surgery.

Patrick: Okay, well, why don't I talk to Dr. Kendricks and I can just fill you in?

Robin: Because he wants my opinion, not yours. Besides, I think it makes more sense for me to start therapy after we move to General Hospital. I mean, we're going to be slammed for weeks.

Patrick: There's lots of staff to help getting back to General Hospital, and your treatment should be a priority.

Robin: So now you're setting my priorities for me?

Patrick: Robin, I haven't done you any favors by being in denial about this. If it was any other illness, you would have seen the doctor months ago.

Robin: Fine. I'll go to the appointment.

Patrick: Okay, you know what? I'll drive you over there.

Robin: Why? You afraid I'll end up in Rochester?     

Robin: Why is everything I always say to you the wrong answer? If I want to focus on being a doctor, that's wrong. If I say I'll go to the therapy session, that's wrong, too.

Patrick: Hey, Robin, I'm on your side here.

Robin: I know. I'll go to the session. And you know what? If you want to give me a ride, that's fine.

Patrick: Okay. You know, maybe we can leave early and grab some lunch or something.

Robin: Take a walk on the waterfront?

Patrick: Yeah.

Elizabeth: Dr. Weiss needs you right away in post-op. The bleeding hasn't stopped.

Robin: Go ahead. Go ahead. I'll go to the session, I promise.

Patrick: Okay, you know what? Maybe I'll talk to Dr. Kendricks and see if we can put off the consult a couple of hours, then you can do it.

Robin: Thanks, I appreciate that.

Patrick: Okay.

Robin: Go. I'll be fine.

Ric: My brother deserves to know the truth.

Claudia: You think he's going to be grateful to you for reminding him of the worst day of his life?

Ric: Well, Sonny's always suspected that there was more than one person involved in Michael's shooting. Once I prove that to him, that he's right, of course he's going to owe me.

Claudia: Whatever. Don't be too sure.

Ric: Claudia, maybe if you had kids, you'd understand how much Sonny loves his children. He will do anything to protect them, and he will kill anybody who causes them pain.

Claudia: If you show Sonny that DVD, this is over, okay, between us. There's not going to be any more fun little games, Ric. No more sex with me. And you're not going to have any evidence against Jason and Sonny to give to the FBI.

Ric: Well, don't worry. I'll be able to prove that Sonny killed you, and then he'll go to prison and I take over.

Claudia: Well, what about Jason? I mean, come on. The guy has only not killed you because you're Sonny's brother. What about my brother, Ric? You honestly believe that Johnny's going to let you live when he finds out you provoked Sonny into killing me?

Ric: I'll disappear for a while.

Claudia: And then what? What, come back like nothing happened? Not a chance. Look, I know that you're doing this to scare me. Fine, it worked. I'm scared. But you need to stick to our deal. You keep our secret. I will find you some information that you can use against Jason and Sonny.

Ric: That's going to have to be some pretty strong evidence, enough to go to prison.

Claudia: It will be. You know that I'm a lot more useful to you alive than I ever could be if I was dead, right?

Ric: Depends on what kind of evidence you turn up.

Jax: Look, Carly made a leap of faith the night Michael was shot. She decided that he was going to wake up and she never really stopped believing that. That's the way she thinks. That's the way she lives her life, one of the reasons I love her so much. She never gives up on anything.

Olivia: All right, but working with this specialist, trying to convince her to work with Michael even against her best instincts, isn't that kind of feeding false hope?

Jax: Possibly. But if Dr. Hensen says that Michael can't recover, at least Carly would have heard it from the top person in the field.

Olivia: Do you think he really moved his hand?

Jax: Carly saw him move his hand. I'm going to do whatever I can to help her explore all the possibilities to bring Michael back. And she really shouldn't be bothered with any of this Jerry stuff.

Olivia: I agree. I think keeping a secret isn't wrong if it protects the people that you love.

Carly: We're having a private conversation here.

Kate: I simply asked if there was news about Michael.

Sonny: Carly saw Michael's hand move. The doctors aren't making any promises, but he could be a candidate for a procedure that could wake him up.

Kate: That's wonderful, Sonny. Well, I'll keep him in my prayers.

Carly: Do you believe what you just said?

Sonny: You got really good instincts. And if you think he's, you know, going to wake up, then who am I to say he isn't?

Carly: Thank you.

Sonny: Anything else you want me to do now? You want me to go to another specialist or --

Carly: No, no, Jax is taking care of that, but I will keep you posted on everything.

Sonny: You know hope is not what I do best. But if you believe that Michael is waking up, then I'm going to find a way to believe it, too.

Maxie: Oh, Kate, Clarice is mid-meltdown.

Lulu: Your latte and your messages.

Kate: Okay, Maxie, just please -- just deal with Clarice. And, Johnny, the point is to show up at these events and actually be seen. If you can't manage that, I'll find someone who can. Lulu, just have Olivia sent in when she gets here, and don't bother me with anyone else. And don't have the delivery boy loiter.

Lulu: No, actually, I wanted to introduce you to Ethan Lovett. He works for my father.

Ethan: It's a pleasure to meet you, Ms. Howard.

Lulu: So I was thinking, you know, he could replace Johnny in the P.R. dates.

Kate: Absolutely not. End of discussion.

[Phone rings]

Maxie: I told you.

Johnny: I got to go. I hope you're not in too much trouble with Kate.

Lulu: Well, Kate didn't seem very happy with you, either.

Maxie: Hey, don't get all garage-y. I'm going to still call you about that fitting.

Johnny: Bye, Maxie.

Ethan: Can you hold that door for me? You tried. And it was wonderful to see you again as well, even with your clothes on.

Maxie: You need to get your paranoia under control and go get me all those things on that list. Oh, my God. All of our petty cash is gone.  

Luke: You holding out on me, dodge?

Ethan: Hey, this is personal income.

Luke: From whose person?

Ethan: That has nothing to do with the Haunted Star.

Luke: Where'd you get it?

Ethan: I acquired it from town.

Luke: Well, I'm still taking my cut.

Ethan: On what grounds?

Luke: Your base of operations is the Haunted Star.

Ethan: Yes, it is.

Luke: Where'd you get it?

Ethan: Why is your lovely daughter always so cranky?

Luke: You didn't.

Ethan: It's a simple question.

Luke: Well, she's cranky because she's a Spencer. She is genetically predisposed to see the rottenness of the world and smell bad risk when in it comes in her vicinity. Unfortunately, her fatal flaw is that she runs into the open arms of every bad risk she sees.

Ethan: Well, that sounds promising.

Sonny: Robin, you okay?

Robin: I'm procrastinating.

Sonny: What do you mean? Anything in particular?

Robin: My first session with my shrink.

Sonny: I know what that's like.

Robin: I just don't understand why I, you know, can't get it together and move on. Emma is a blessing. I'm married to the man that I love. I live in a beautiful house I can easily afford. I don't understand where my life went.

Sonny: If you need help, you need help.

Robin: You know, I see these mothers at work -- blue collar jobs, barely have health insurance. They love their babies, can't wait to spend time with them. Why can't I do that?

Sonny: I will tell you why. Because they don't have the medical condition that you have.

Robin: Yeah, but I can't even hold my baby. I don't want to feed her. I don't want to touch her. I don't even want to look at her. I mean, that's awful. I'm a failure as a mother. I'm not doing much better as a wife, either. I worked so hard to create this perfect life for myself. And I'm not only letting it slip away, but I'm actively destroying it.

Sonny: I know what that's like.

Robin: How am I supposed to say all that to a doctor?

Sonny: I didn't want to deal with being bipolar, right? I didn't want to sit in an office while some doctor looks at me and says, "How do you feel? What do you think?" All right? That first session was so difficult for me.

Robin: But you did it.

Sonny: Yeah, you know why I did it? Because I told myself that my kids needed a father more than I needed to pretend that I wasn't sick.

Carly: Hey, how's it going with Dr. Hensen?

Jax: Well, they're still making arrangements, but she's agreed to examine him.

Carly: Okay, well, does she think it's good sign that his hand moved?

Jax: She's staying neutral for now. I'm also contacting other specialists. Look, if we decide to move forward with this, there's going to be some risk involved, considerably more than there was with the test.

Carly: I understand that.

Jax: Okay.

Carly: But Michael's trying to come back to us, and it's our responsibility to help him any way we can. He wants to be with us, you know? I believe that he can feel how much we love him, and I know he can hear every word we're saying.

Jax: I hope not.

Carly: I think it's good that he can hear us. That means he knows how much we love him, and maybe it will help him when he wakes up.

Jax: I know, I'm just saying that it must be frustrating for him to lie there, having the people he loves pour their hearts out and not being able to respond.

Carly: What do you say to him? Because I only say positive things.

Jax: If Michael can hear us, that means he knows exactly how he got to where he is. I can't imagine he'd be too happy about it when he wakes up.

Carly: No, but he'll know that we love him, and that's important. And it means so much to me that you're going and spending time with him. He can feel us praying and hoping for him, and that's going to give him strength to come back home.

Jax: I wish I could think like you do.

Carly: No, you don't. No, because if Michael doesn't wake up, I'm going to have a really hard time with that no matter what I say. Now I just have to keep telling myself, you know, this is fair, right, putting Michael through this test? And I have to make sure that I am trying to help Michael wake up for Michael and not for myself, because I just can't do anything that's going to hurt my son again. I can't.

Jax: It's not your fault what happened to Michael, okay? His life was stolen by some immoral --

Carly: Stop. We are going to be positive. We're going to be positive for Michael.

Jax: Okay.

Sonny: I lived for years with manic depression, bipolar, whatever you want to call it. I -- I didn't have a name for it, but to me, it was fine because I didn't know what was going on. I thought I was just being normal. You knew me then, right?

Robin: Normal? I thought you were just moody.

Sonny: Well, speaking of moody, you know what? I kind of miss the highs, you know? Yeah, I mean, it's like the feeling of, like, being able to do anything you want. Invincible, throwing money around like it's nothing, making crazy, stupid choices. But you know what I don't miss? What happens after that. The crashes. It's very, very difficult. And I've got to tell you, that's why I stay on my medication. I see a shrink every once in awhile because I don't want to go through that.

Robin: Well, I don't get any of the highs. One day is just like the next day. I'm always wrong. Emma's always crying. Patrick is always telling me that I should be a better mother. He even went behind my back to Carly. Can you believe that? And now we have Mercedes three days a week to tell me how to take care of my kid, and --

[Robin groans]

Robin: What? Why are you smiling?

Sonny: I'm not smiling. What do you mean?

Robin: Patrick talked to you, didn't he? Great. No wonder I want to be somebody else.

Sonny: Okay, Robin, you've got to listen to me, now, okay? Emma needs a mother, and that's on you. You can't blame Patrick, Carly, or me, or anyone else. You owe it to your daughter to be the best mother you can be. And that's not working right now.

Robin: Yeah, I know. I'm just so humiliated, you know?

Sonny: But why?

Robin: I've always found a way to deal with my problems. I've always found a way to get through it, and now what's stopping me is, I have everything I've ever wanted?

Sonny: You've got to do what the doctor says, or you're going to get sicker. And you don't want that. You don't want to wind up somewhere that you don't even remember where, doing things you can't even imagine. I don't wish that on anyone. Especially, somebody who I care deeply about.

Johnny: Tell me Ric Lansing isn't dead.

Claudia: No, he's not dead, but I'm going to be if you don't help me out.

Johnny: That sounds familiar.

Claudia: Hey, don't be a smartass, okay? Ric is out of the hospital, John. He's alive, he was here, and he's going to tell --

Johnny: Claudia, what would you have done if Sonny walked into your bedroom and found Ric lying on the floor unconscious, almost dead because of a drug overdose? Or what if Sonny had seen me and Maxie drag Ric down the stairs? You need to get out of this situation. It's not going to work.

Claudia: What I need is for you to come up with some kind of incriminating evidence against Jason and Sonny, something that I could use to put them away.

Johnny: Oh, so you're going to spy on your husband now?

Claudia: No, you are.

Lulu: This may be one big game to you, but the money that you stole from the petty cash box could be my job, so you're going to give it back.

Ethan: You see what I mean? She's so cranky.

Luke: What was he doing at the "Crimson" office?

Lulu: I invited him, but that's not the point.

Ethan: The point is I didn't steal this money, I earned it, all right? I spent an hour of my life cleaning up, traveling, only all for the privilege of being snubbed and rejected by an extremely well-dressed woman.

Lulu: I was trying to get you a job, and you stole from me.

Ethan: You didn't try very hard, did you?

Lulu: All right, give it.

Ethan: It's not all here.

Lulu: You spent it already?

Ethan: No, the matador took his cut.

Lulu: Dad, give me the money.

Luke: Why would I do that?

Lulu: Um, I don't know, because you're my father and I could lose my job.

Luke: Little girl, you invited Ethan into your place of employment knowing full well that he has sticky fingers. It seems to me you assumed the risk.

Ethan: Just think of it as a lesson learned.

Luke: So if tall, dark, and gruesome took your money, it's -- it's up to you to get it back. Consider it a vote of confidence. I think that you can handle this yourself with style and grace and flair.

Lulu: Fine. My brother is a cop. I'll call him.

Luke: No cops, ever! I taught you better than that.

Ethan: And I don't usually do this, but since you are so pretty, I will give you a chance to win back your money.

Lulu: Really, at one of these tables? No.

Ethan: Cards?

Lulu: Poker.

Ethan: Draw or stud?

Lulu: Either with or without a twist? I learned from the best.

Luke: Yes, but you might be a little rusty.

Lulu: Do you want me to deal with this or not?

Luke: Absolutely, I do. But I don't want to watch. Oh, and by the way, be careful.

Ethan: No worries. I wouldn't resort to such trickery with you.

Lulu: Just shut up and deal.

Johnny: So you want me to infiltrate the Corinthos organization and find incriminating information on Sonny and Jason?

Claudia: I just need enough to feed Ric, stall him. Come on.

Johnny: You need to get out of this house, Claudia, and out of the country. The truth about Michael is going to come out. Hell, it already is, right in front of your face.

Claudia: Not if you help me, John. Look, you're going to have a much easier time than I ever would getting close to Sonny. Hell, he's probably already offered you a job, hasn't he? I knew it. I knew it.

Johnny: Claudia, even if I were to take a job with Sonny, do you think he's going to offer me and sort of information even remotely incriminating?

Claudia: Yeah, because you're going to get him to trust you. Johnny, you have to make him trust you. Find something that I can feed Ric, and I will work on getting Ric's DVD away from him.

Johnny: Ric's DVD? Claudia, for all you know, he has a hundred copies of the DVD, and he's ready to post them on the internet. This won't work.

Claudia: I have the life that I want now, Johnny, finally. I'm married to Sonny. Please, help me.

[Ric laughs]

Ric: Well, what a touching family moment.

Claudia: The guard should have known not to let you in.

Ric: You panicked, didn't you? Called little brother over here as soon as I left. Well, that tells me a couple of things. First, that Johnny knows about Michael. And second, he's probably been in on it from the start.

Sonny: Hey, what are you doing down here?

Olivia: I could ask you the same. I heard about Michael. I heard he moved his hand. That's -- that's a real good sign.

Sonny: We hope.

Olivia: Oh, come on, Sonny. You got a gift. You're going to find the dark side to everything, like every silver lining, you've got to make a big, black cloud around it.

Sonny: Maybe. Maybe I'm just afraid to hope. Oh, see, now you know my secret. When it comes to children, I'm a coward.

Olivia: Scary thing. You know, it opens you up to all kinds of disappointment. But I mean, life without hope -- I mean, that'll cost you, too, you know?

Sonny: I made a lot of mistakes with Michael.

Olivia: Oh, come on, you and every other parent on the planet earth. I mean, that's not the thing. It's how you handle the mistakes, that's what matters.

Sonny: Yeah, I always told myself that I was going to be a good father, that whatever Deke did to me, I was going to do the opposite. For the most part, I did that until weeks before it happened. I came down on Michael pretty hard. He grabbed a gun and he accidentally shot Kate. Did she tell you that?

Olivia: Well, she said it was a terrible accident, that he was actually trying to throw the gun away.

Sonny: Michael was devastated because he was afraid that I wasn't going to forgive him, so going to the warehouse together was like a new beginning. So now, you know, he may wake up. You know, I may have a second chance. Not that I deserve a second chance, but I may have a second chance. I just wanted to be a better father.

Doctor: I'm Lauren Brown.

Robin: Robin Scorpio.

Dr. Brown: I see we're both doctors. Your specialty is research pathology?

Robin: Yes, I develop drug protocols for a variety of conditions.

Dr. Brown: Feel free to sit down.

[Robin chuckles]

Robin: I don't want to be here.

Dr. Brown: I get that a lot.

Robin: I just need to go home and sleep, I think.

Dr. Brown: Is your baby crying at night?

Robin: See, you did it, too. I say something about myself, you automatically assume it's about my baby. Well, to answer your question, yeah, Emma's fine. She's sleeping. She's perfect. Ask anybody.

Dr. Brown: But I'm asking you.

Robin: Maybe you should ask me something else.

Dr. Brown: Do you think you have postpartum depression?

Robin: That's what they tell me.

Dr. Brown: "They?"

Robin: Yeah, my husband, assorted friends.

Dr. Brown: What do you think, Robin? Are you happy with your current situation?

Robin: Uh, no -- no, I'm not.

Dr. Brown: Any idea why?

Robin: I'm a horrible mother.

Dr. Brown: Well, that's a strong judgment to make.

Robin: Well, my daughter starts crying, I don't want to pick her up. I mean, if I try to, she just starts crying even more. I have never felt so alone. But everyone seems to agree that I'm the problem.

Dr. Brown: Do you think you are?

Robin: Well, I ended up in a hotel room in Rochester with a stranger, ready to cheat on my husband.

Patrick: Let's wait to see those scans in 417 until we get back to General Hospital, if we can.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Patrick: And did you hear from Robin by chance?

Elizabeth: No, I haven't.

Patrick: Okay, well, that's assuming she actually went to the psychiatrist and didn't keep driving.

Elizabeth: Oh, I don't think she's going to do that again.

Patrick: Well, who knows these days? I never thought she'd drive away from her family in the first place and have a one-night stand, but she did.

Elizabeth: Okay, technically, all you saw was a kiss. You don't really know what happened.

Patrick: Elizabeth, I appreciate that, but I know what I saw. I used to be one of those guys. If an attractive woman showed up at a bar, single, no kids, there on business -- why wouldn't I sleep with her?

Elizabeth: I walked in on Lucky and Maxie once. It was really bad and uncomfortable. And eventually I understood that the affair, the lies, the fighting -- it was all part of his addiction.

Patrick: I know Robin is making some crazy decisions right now, and I know they're based on postpartum depression, but Robin is not the only one that gave up a lot for this marriage. So did I. And right now, I'm not even sure who I'm married to anymore.           

Elizabeth: Robin is dealing with a serious medical illness. But you know it's temporary.

Patrick: Yes, I do, but the choices she makes, they still count.

Elizabeth: I agree, and it's not wrong for you to expect her to go to that doctor's appointment. But I am also thinking that you need to get some help.

Patrick: I'm not sick.

Elizabeth: And I'm not an addict, but I got help when Lucky was using and it made a huge difference.

Patrick: Okay, great, but what about Emma? She needs her mother. This is the time that they should be bonding.

Elizabeth: And they will, they will.

Patrick: You know another thing that drives me a little bit crazy? Why is she so miserable? I mean, she has so much.

Elizabeth: Robin is very used to controlling every aspect of her life, and having Emma has really thrown her for a loop. But I have faith that she is going to work through this postpartum, and she is going to find herself again.

Patrick: I know. And you know what? I have to remember how frustrating this must be for Robin. I know deep down she really, really wants to be a good mother.

Elizabeth: And she will. Just give her time.

Patrick: I'll try. Well, with any luck, she'll end up just like you.

Robin: I've been HIV positive since 1995, so for a long time, I didn't think that I could have children. And then suddenly, the statistics turned in my favor, and I wanted a baby more than anything. I almost died when Emma was born. I guess I just thought I would bounce back faster than I did.

Dr. Brown: That sounds like an excuse.

Robin: When Emma cries, I know that I'm supposed to go to her, but I -- I can't. I just want her to stop -- to just stop. To just stop crying for five seconds, so I can think, I can read, I can -- I don't know, practice medicine? I never thought that I would lose myself so much in this tiny little creature -- person. Emma is a person. She's my daughter and I love her, but it's starting to become obvious to everyone, including myself, that I don't want to be a mother at all.

Claudia: My brother had nothing to do with what happened to Michael.

Ric: Claudia, stop lying, okay? It doesn't matter anyway. Hey, look, John, let me tell you something. The only way your sister is going to save her life is if she does what I want, whenever I want it.

Claudia: John, no, no, no, no.

Olivia: You know, I've got to admit, back in the day, I could not have pictured you as this devoted father.

Sonny: Well, I was afraid. I mean, the way I grew up, I didn't think I'd be good with a family, and then I got together with Carly, and you know, Michael came with the deal. I adopted him, and he's my kid just as much as Morgan and Kristina. In a lot of ways, he's so much like me, even more than my biological kids. It doesn't -- I love him -- loved him so much. It doesn't matter because, you know, there's not much I can do right now. He was an amazing kid, and he truly deserved a better father than he had.

Olivia: You've got rights, too, Sonny, you know. You deserve, um, you deserve to know.

Sonny: Deserve to know what?
