Patrick: You okay?

Elizabeth: I am so sorry.

Robin: What happened?

Elizabeth: I don't know. I thought the brake was set. It just got away from me.

Patrick: I think it's the layout. We're all getting used to it.

Epiphany: Can someone tell me why my best nurse is pitching hospital equipment down staircases?

Elizabeth: Epiphany, I am so sorry. We were just saying how we're not used to this layout.

Epiphany: Well, you better get used to it or somebody is going to get hurt.

Carly: Go on.

Kelly: I don't like giving my patients this kind of news. But the tests confirmed you have ZBT. There is a very good chance you could develop a blood clot, which could cause a stroke or worse if you choose to continue this pregnancy.

Jax: Hey, is there something wrong with the baby?

Kelly: I'd like you to come in so we can figure out --

Carly: Okay. All right, I will. Bye.

Jax: Hey. You've gone all pale. What's wrong?

Carly: Well, it's not the baby. It's me.

Jax: What about you? Hey, what --

Carly: It's hormones.

Jax: Oh.

Carly: It is. It's hormones. And, you know, you better get used to it because it's just going to get worse up until the baby is born.

Jax: Hey, you know what? It's what I've always dreamed of -- you, me, your wild hormones. As long as at the end of it all I get to hold you and the baby, I don't care.

Ric: You know, I never considered you the maternal type. I mean, motherhood takes a certain empathy, which you are sorely lacking. But from a purely practical standpoint, getting pregnant --

Claudia: You know, this was a shock for Sonny and me both, but we're making the adjustment and we are committed to this baby. Right, Sonny?

Sonny: Why do you have that smug look on your face?

Mike: Hey. You know, I'm going to take a wild guess here that you didn't just come by because you had a sudden craving for chili.

Nikolas: No, no, I'm here to see Rebecca.

Mike: Yeah, yeah, I think I could have bet those odds. You know, the other day, Rebecca was leaving for work and she went out that door and turned. And I can't tell you if it was the way the light hit her or just the smile on her face, but I know she's not Emily. Rebecca is her own person. But, Nikolas, sometimes it is -- it's unsettling.

Nikolas: Yeah, I know. Look, I'm not trying to replace Emily. I wouldn't want to.

Mike: Yeah. Just be careful.

Nikolas: Thanks.

Mike: Yeah.

Nikolas: Just, please. I didn't want to take advantage of my position at the hospital and ambush you there, so --

Rebecca: Oh, I thought I was the one taking advantage of your feelings for Emily and my resemblance to her. I mean, I'm the big, bad user and poor, vulnerable Nikolas is the grieving widower just ripe for the picking.

Nikolas: Don't.

Rebecca: No, I have to go. Helena is waiting for me so we can put our heads together over phase two of our master plan to -- what is it that we're supposed to be doing again, exactly?

Nikolas: Please, stop. I was wrong, okay? The idea of you getting involved with Helena is absurd. And, although Alexis and I have every reason to be paranoid, I had no right to accuse you. So I'm hoping that you'll forgive me.

Epiphany: If they asked me, I would have told them to open a week early to give the staff a trial run because I know my new computer station is a disaster waiting to happen.

Elizabeth: I will take the chair into maintenance before I go off duty. Anyway, I was looking for you guys. Here.

Robin: What's this?

Elizabeth: Cameron got so excited about that toy car Patrick gave him and he just wanted to show his gratitude, and he picked that out himself.

Patrick: You didn't have to do that.

Elizabeth: It's from the gift shop. It's a guardian angel bear.

Robin: Oh, that is so cute.

Patrick: It's adorable.

Elizabeth: I figured we could all use one some time -- a guardian angel, not a bear.

Robin: Thank you. Emma is going to love this.

Elizabeth: You're welcome.

Patrick: Thanks.

Patrick: So, not to push you or anything, but Emma has got a checkup with Dr. O’Donnell later if you want to be there.

Robin: I would like to be there. Now that I'm on my meds and going to therapy, I should focus and do the things I'm supposed to.

Patrick: Good.

Epiphany: Drake Jr., you're needed for an emergency consult in pre-op.

Patrick: I can't, I got to go pick up Emma, actually.

Robin: I -- I'll do it. Come on, I'm Emma’s mom. I should be able to do that.

Patrick: You sure?

Robin: Yeah. I'll go pick her up and I will meet you at Dr. O’Donnell’s office.

Patrick: Okay, Epiphany, tell them I'll be right there. Okay. You're all right with that?

Robin: Mm-hmm.

Patrick: I'll see you later.

Alexis: Oh, God. Hi, I'm at 9th -- I'm sorry, 10th and Van Ness. There's been an explosion. There's two men down. Yes, 10th and Van Ness. What? I can't tell. I'm at level C. One of them is okay. The other one is alive, too. I cannot tell what kind of condition they're in. You've got to send an ambulance now.

Jax: You know, I was thinking about calling the architect, set up an appointment.

Carly: I knew you couldn't keep your hands off those plans.

Jax: Did you think when we first talked to him that there was going to be a nursery in the cards? I was thinking maybe we should put it by the entrance to the garden. That way you can go outside with the baby and sit in the sun. It's where you wanted the roses, too.

Carly: You know what I was thinking?

Jax: What?

Carly: I was thinking that this one is going to be daddy's little princess, and you need to start showing some restraint or she's going to grow up with completely unrealistic expectations of men.

Jax: You know what, I don't care if it's a boy or a girl. I already love this baby more than my own life.

Carly: You don't care if it's a girl or not, huh?

Jax: Nope.

Carly: That's why you bought everything in pink.

Jax: I was just listening to what you said. You said it was going to be a girl, so --

Carly: I feel that way and I'm going to stick to it. I am capable of willing my body to do certain things.

Jax: I still can't believe this. It hasn't really sunk in. We're having a baby. It's a miracle. This is going to be the most important thing I'll ever do.

Carly: I am so happy to give that to you.

Ric: Just what a great, big, unhappy family we're all going to be.

Sonny: Why are you here? And why are you calmly having a conversation with the man who accused you of shooting Michael?

Claudia: I'm not calm. I just thought if Ric knew that I was pregnant he'd have some decency and stop trying to turn you against me.

Ric: Speaking of Claudia, the DVD that Jerry left for her has mysteriously disappeared from the vault in my lawyer's office.

Claudia: It never existed in the first place and you know it. That was a twisted, vindictive lie.

Ric: What was my motive, again?

Sonny: It's not rocket science, Ric. She ditched you to be with me, so, you know, you want to get even. The question I have is, did you frame her for something you did?

Ric: Sonny, I had nothing to do with Michael’s shooting.

Sonny: If you're innocent, prove it.    

Carly: I can come now, if you want.

Kelly: You haven't told Jax yet.

Carly: I don't really want to get into that, so can you fit me in or not?

Kelly: It may be a few minutes before I can --

Carly: Okay.

Jax: Heading out?

Carly: Yeah, I'm going to the hospital. Michael should be arriving soon. I'm going to meet Sonny and Dr. Hensen there. I won't be long.

Jax: No, take all the time you need. I'll meet you there later. The last thing you need is Sonny and I banging heads.

Carly: I'm going to stay positive.

Jax: Hey, I love you. I can't imagine what you're feeling right now -- just finding out you're pregnant, Michael facing this experimental procedure. I really admire your strength. I don't know anyone that could do what you're doing right now. Take care of our precious little one, okay?

Carly: I promise I will.

Jax: Okay. Bye.

Carly: Bye.

Alexis: I'm District Attorney Alexis Davis. How are they?

Paramedic: Do you know these men?

Alexis: I do -- Jason Morgan, Jerry Jacks.

Paramedic: Do you know if they're on any medication or have any allergies?

Alexis: They're both allergic to moral choices. I don't know what medications they're on. As far as I know, they're not.

[Telephone rings]

Jax: Hello?

Alexis: Hi, it's me. I'm in the 10th Street garage.

Jax: Are you okay?

Alexis: I'm fine. It's your brother.

Jax: You know what, whatever message he convinced you to pass along, I don't care, Alexis.

Alexis: There's been an explosion. He's hurt. They're taking him to General Hospital.

Jax: All right, all right. I'll meet you there.

Alexis: I'm going to go with Mr. Jacks. Will you tell Commissioner Scorpio to meet me at the hospital, please? He can take a statement there. Thank you.


Sonny: It's ironic. The only thing keeping you here is your own history. You'll lie about anything. You'll make up any story if it undermines me somehow. So you claim that Claudia got Michael shot because you want me to turn against Claudia.

Ric: Sonny --

Sonny: So you accuse her of the worst possible thing you could possibly accuse her of.

Ric: Sonny, you're not this big a fool.

Sonny: Okay, you know what? I'd be a fool to believe you, Ric.

Ric: Well, congratulations on the blessed event. A little piece of brotherly advice -- don't turn your back on her.

Claudia: I am so glad that you came home when you did. He's so jealous. Ric would do anything to ruin what we have. You know that.

Sonny: What do you think we have, Claudia?

Claudia: Well, I mean, we have this baby, for starters, which I know that we didn't plan. But since we've agreed to have this child, I'm committed to giving it a good life. And I'm sure that you feel the same, right?

Robin: Here we go, all strapped in. Look, Elizabeth gave this to you. It's your guardian angel. She said that it'll keep us both safe. We're going to go to the doctor and -- here, there you go. They're going to tell you that you are a very strong, healthy girl. Mommy is doing better every day, too. Okay, here we go. Now that I'm not taking those antidepressants anymore, I feel more like myself. I can be the best mom to you that I can. All right, ready? We can do this. Okay, let's go.

Rebecca: Nice you can admit how out of line you've been.

Nikolas: But you don't forgive me.

Rebecca: Look, I'm grateful for your kindness during my cancer scare, Nikolas. I mean, if it wasn't for you, I'd probably still be trying to find excuses to put off the biopsy.

Nikolas: But you don't forgive me.

Rebecca: Look, this is a bad idea. Every time we seem to be getting close, it blows up in my face, which, let's face it, is more than half the problem since my face looks exactly like Emily’s.

Nikolas: I thought we were friends, at least.

Rebecca: Yeah, so did I, until you decided to go down the paranoid highway and decided that I was your grandmother's puppet. Look, Nikolas, I think you're a really nice guy. I do, especially considering all the baggage that you're carrying around. But some things are just more trouble than they're worth, and you and I appear to be one of them.

Nikolas: I disagree. I liked where we were going before my grandmother showed up. I'd like to get back there.

Rebecca: Well, you can't. More importantly, I won't.    

Nikolas: I'd like a chance to make it up to you. Can I take you to dinner?

Rebecca: Have you ever played chess?

Nikolas: Yes.

Rebecca: When I was in high school, I joined the chess club. I know it's hard to believe. I did it to get James Cavanaugh to notice me. He never did. But at least I learned how the game works. See, the pawn is the weakest, most vulnerable, and expendable piece in the game. And that's exactly where you've put me.

Nikolas: That's just not true.

Rebecca: You see, all this of this is going on. None of it is about me. I'm just getting moved around on the board. But, see, I'm not interested in being anyone's pawn. So thank you for the nice things you did for me, and have a nice life.

Nikolas: So I take it you're not accepting my invitation to dinner?

Rebecca: I wouldn't go out with you even if I didn't already have plans.

Elizabeth: Hey.

Nikolas: Hi.

Elizabeth: Bad day?

Nikolas: Yeah, you could say that.

Elizabeth: Like "stuck in traffic" bad, or "Helena is back to torture you" bad?

Nikolas: Helena got the painting she wanted and supposedly has left town, but not before Alexis decided that Rebecca was her pawn.

Elizabeth: What do you think?

Nikolas: I don't want to believe it.

Elizabeth: It wouldn't surprise me if Helena never laid eyes on Rebecca and she's just messing with your head.

Nikolas: So you think she's innocent?

Elizabeth: I don't really know her well enough to make that call.

Nikolas: Well, it doesn't matter anyway. She's decided she wants nothing to do with me.

Lucky: Forget it, both of you. I'm taking Rebecca out whether you like it or not.

Claudia: You know, I'm really kind of flying blind here. When it comes to babysitting, my only experience was hiding my brother from my father's rage. Since you're really the only one with any experience with kids, I might need a little guidance.

Sonny: With my track record?

Claudia: You love your kids, Sonny.

Sonny: Yeah, I love my --

Claudia: You love them.

Sonny: Yeah, I love them.

Claudia: Should I be picking out a nursery?

Sonny: No, what you should do, what you got to do -- here, you got to look in the internet, right, and buy whatever it says. I got to get to the hospital because they're bringing Michael in.

Claudia: So I take it that Carly is going to be there? Are you going to tell her that --

Sonny: I already told her.

Claudia: Did her head explode?

Sonny: She wishes us a healthy baby, and I wished her the same. She's pregnant, too.

Claudia: Are you kidding me?

Sonny: It's ironic, I mean, the way things work out in life. You know, it's like if Michael wakes up, he's going to have two new siblings waiting for him.

Paramedic: Possible closed head injury.

Monica: Trauma one. Patrick, I'm going to need you on this.

Patrick: You got it.

Monica: Jason?

Alexis: When I found him, he was unconscious.

Paramedic: B.P. is 90/50, pulse 90. He is unresponsive, possible concussion, second-degree burns to right arm.

Matt: Okay, we'll take it from here.

Alexis: Maybe I should go with.

Matt: Sorry, it's family only.

Alexis: Does it count if I was family?

Matt: "Was" does not count.

Alexis: They just took him into a cubicle.

Jax: So he's alive. What happened?

Alexis: It's your brother. Pick a disaster. Oh, don't look at me like that.

Jax: I told you not to meet him.

Alexis: I acted on a bad impulse, all right? That's the story of my life. I walked in. The car was on fire. Jason and Jerry were lying on the ground.

Jax: Jason? Jason?

Alexis: He's in the trauma center. And it's a good thing that I did act on my bad impulse.

Jax: I'm just glad that you didn't get there early and got caught in the blast yourself.

Alexis: I'm fine, okay? And your brother will be fine, too. He's like a vampire.

Jax: I'm not worried about my brother. I'm worried about Carly and how to keep her away from all this.

Alexis: Where is she?

Jax: She's on the other side of the hospital. Michael is being transferred from the city today. I just don't want her to know that Jason is in the E.R. This is exactly the kind of stress that she should avoid while pregnant.

Carly: Okay, well, you need to tell me how I can keep the ZBT under control.

Kelly: That may not be an option.

Carly: Okay, look, Jax and I have waited and waited to have a baby and he was devastated after the last miscarriage. I can't disappoint him again.

Kelly: I'm assuming Jax loves you. He wouldn't want you to carry a baby at the risk of your own life.

Carly: That's why Jax isn't here. An abortion isn't an option. I can carry this baby to term. I know I can.

Kelly: The only way to guarantee your safety is to terminate.

Carly: It's not going to happen. It's not going to happen. Look, I'll go on bed rest. I'll take whatever medication I need to take.

Kelly: The only medication that can counter the clotting factor is dangerous to the fetus.

Carly: Okay, so tell me what I need to do.

Kelly: I'm sorry, Carly, but whatever you promised yourself or me or God won't change the fact that you're putting yourself at risk if you go forward with this.

Carly: Can you please work with me here?

Kelly: Your test results indicate a one-in-two chance that you could develop a serious blood clot which could result in a stroke or an embolism.

Carly: Okay, that's a one-in-two chance that me and the baby will be just fine.

Epiphany: Here's the Dawson file.

Robin: Thank you, Epiphany. Sorry for making you bring it up to me.

Epiphany: Oh, it's no bother. You have your hands full at the moment.

Robin: Yeah.

Epiphany: Oh, well, now, these are some fancy wheels you got here, huh? Fit for a princess.

Robin: Epiphany, could you do me a favor and page Patrick? We're here for Emma’s checkup, and he wouldn't want to miss it.

Epiphany: I'm afraid you're on your own with that one. Drake Jr.'s up to his elbows with two patients down in the E.R., but when I see him, I'll tell him you're here.

Robin: Okay, Emma. Mommy's got this.

Monica: Pupils equal and reactive.

Patrick: We need a CAT scan, cbc, bmt, and bleeding times. We have to operate. Monica, I don't think you should be in here for this.

Monica: I'm fine.

Patrick: Monica, you know better.

Monica: Hey, I can't tell you the number of times that he has come in here with stab wounds, burn wounds -- come on, you name it. He cheats death on a daily basis, and my job is to save his life.

Alexis: The police will be here any minute. I have to think of something I'm going to say to them.

Jax: You saved my brother's life.

Alexis: You're not sure how you feel about that, are you? That's okay. Neither do I.

Jax: I'm going to find out what's happening, okay?

Jax: How's my brother?

Matt: Mr. Jacks is still unconscious, and we're awaiting test results. I'll keep you posted. You can go in.

Jax: Thanks.

Jax: Well, well, well. Couldn't stay away from Port Charles, huh? Thanks a lot. Police are going to be all over this, Jerry. And if Carly finds out what you're doing here, what you did to Michael -- she's pregnant, Jerry. A shock like this could make her lose the baby. You were my big brother. I worshipped you. And now I swear, if there was a plug to pull, I'd pull it.

Kelly: You ask me what you can do? Avoid stress. Stop keeping this from your husband.

Carly: I can't do that.

Kelly: Carly, you need to make an informed decision together about your pregnancy.

Carly: That choice was made when Jax found out I was pregnant. His feet haven't touched the ground since. He's never wanted anything more than he wants this baby.

Kelly: Not even your continued health and well-being?

Carly: Look, telling Jax won't change the fact that I have ZBT. It's only going to worry him and make him feel guilty, and that is a stress I don't need.

Kelly: It's your choice, that you seem to think that you could just wish this away by sheer force of will. As your doctor, I owe it to you to repeat my diagnosis. You have ZBT. It is extremely serious, and your husband needs to know there is a very real chance he could lose you if you carry this baby.

Carly: Okay, I don't really need any more warnings. I need you to help me figure out a way to have a safe pregnancy, or I will find a doctor who will.

Nikolas: I knew that Rebecca had plans, but I had no idea they were with you.

Elizabeth: I didn't know you were going to be here. I just came by to get some muffins for the morning.

Lucky: Sorry, I overreacted.

Nikolas: So where are you taking her?

Lucky: I made a standing offer to take her to see a band she likes at the Blue Rail. She took me up on it.

Nikolas: Oh, well, you have fun.

Lucky: Why don't you say it like you mean it?

Nikolas: Oh, you're right. I'm sorry. I hope the night is mercilessly flat and tedious and that the two of you never go out again.

Elizabeth: Okay, let's not do this now.

Lucky: Listen, I like Rebecca. I'm not going to avoid her because it makes my brother feel uncomfortable.

Nikolas: You've made that abundantly clear.

Elizabeth: Okay, the both of you, stop it. Just sit down, please. I have something to say.

Elizabeth: We all miss Emily, and we all look at Rebecca and see a resemblance to the person we loved.

Lucky: I don't.

Elizabeth: Yes, you do, Lucky. You miss Emily, too, and we all want to move on, but it's hard with Rebecca as a constant reminder.

Rebecca: Tell me you're not giving Lucky a hard time about going out with me.

Elizabeth: You realize you just sat down in Emily’s chair?    

Rebecca: Seriously? I didn't know Kelly’s had reserved seating.

Elizabeth: We get that this could be uncomfortable for you.

Rebecca: You tell me I've taken the dead girl's seat? Uh, yeah, that's a little uncomfortable.

Elizabeth: Okay, maybe there's something you need to know. The four of us had a tradition that goes back to high school. We would come in here, shut the place down, and have dinner parties, just the four of us. So when you walked in here and sat down in Emily’s seat, I'm sorry, it just threw me a little.

Rebecca: All right, let's forget about it.

Lucky: No, listen, I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm ready to let go of the past. We should get going, or we'll miss the first set.

Rebecca: Okay, let's do it.

Elizabeth: I should have kept my mouth shut.

Patrick: Put a rush on that CT scan on Jason Morgan, and give me all the scans you have on him. Make sure the dates are clearly marked. I want to do inventory of prior injuries. Thanks.

Matt: Prior brain injuries?

Patrick: Jason Morgan’s the reason why I originally came to Port Charles -- complications to an old head injury.

Matt: I think I heard something about this. He used to be a Quartermaine, right? And then a member of his family drove him into a tree?

Patrick: He's had multiple previous head injuries. At a certain point, that much damage becomes severe, possibly life-threatening. I mean, what are the odds that Michael Corinthos is back in the hospital, that they've been trying to wake him up, and now his uncle's in the same hospital, possibly with a coma.

Matt: So you think that's fate, karma, or just really bad luck?

Patrick: I don't know.

Jax: Just ran into Monica. No change with Jason. When Carly finds out, she will sit by his bedside and devote every ounce of energy to Jason, while she should be focusing on herself and the baby she's carrying.

Alexis: If it were you in there and you needed me and nobody told me, I would kill that person.

Jax: So you're saying I should tell her?

Alexis: Or that you can wait a couple of hours and see if Jason wakes up, and when he does, then Carly's not going to have any reason to worry.

Jax: Okay. I wonder who tried to kill who -- Jerry, Jason or Jason, Jerry.

Alexis: I believe it was Jerry's car that exploded, although it was hard to see with all the flames.

Jax: Yeah, well, I guess it doesn't matter who was the victim, as long as they're both okay. Did I just say that?

Alexis: He's your brother. You wouldn't be the incredible man that you are --

Jax: Yeah.

Alexis: If you could stop loving him.

Jax: Well, if the truth comes out and Carly loses the baby because of this, I'm not sure I'll have anything left for my brother but hate.

Alexis: There are the police. I need to talk to them. You go check him, because they're going to want to talk to him as soon as he wakes up.

Jax: Okay.

Kelly: I don't like to give patients false hope.

Carly: I will take any hope that you can give me.

Kelly: There are some early-stage developments in the area of ZBT -- experimental at best. There is no hard clinical proof they work.

Carly: I want this baby. I don't care where I have to go or what it costs. I want this baby.

Kelly: Okay, I'll look into it.

Carly: That's all I'm asking.

Kelly: Meanwhile, you need to avoid emotional upheaval. I know that's challenging, given Michael’s situation, but it's crucial, Carly.

Carly: I have to go meet Michael. He's arriving any minute.

Kelly: Okay, I'll walk you out.

Carly: Okay.

Carly: I'll keep in touch with you, and you just keep me posted about the treatment, okay?

Kelly: I will. Be back soon.

Carly: Thank you.

Epiphany: Well, well, well, Mrs. Jacks. I was wondering how long it would take you to come running.

Carly: Is Michael here already?

Epiphany: I was talking about your friend down in the E.R.

Carly: What friend?

Epiphany: Jason Morgan. I don't know the particulars, but apparently there was some kind of explosion.

Robin: Epiphany, this is the file that I borrowed. Would you mind coming up here again and grabbing it?

Kelly: I got it for you.

Epiphany: Thanks, Dr. Lee.

Robin: Thank you.

Kelly: How is the little girl doing?

Robin: Perfect. We just had an appointment with Dr. O’Donnell. She's in the top two percentile.

Kelly: Way to go, Emma. Hey, cute angel bear.

Robin: Yeah, Elizabeth gave it to Emma. She said it's her guardian angel.

Kelly: Yeah, a little protection never hurt.

Robin: I was hoping to see Patrick. Is he still stuck in the E.R.?

Kelly: I haven't seen him. Looks like you did very well on your own.

Robin: Not that I had anything to prove.

Kelly: Hmm.

Robin: Except I did.

Kelly: You're getting better.

Robin: I am.

Kelly: Yeah.

Robin: And on my own rules. I mean, everyone swore that postpartum depression doesn't go away on its own. Turns out everyone was wrong.

Kelly: The medication is designed to even you out, make things not so overwhelming.

Robin: I know. That's what I'm saying. I'm not taking the meds. I'm getting through this all by myself.

Kelly: Robin, that is completely irresponsible.

Sonny: I don't know where, you know, Michael’s mother is. She's supposed to be here, but she'll -- I'm sure she'll be here as soon as she can.

Dr. Hensen: I prefer to discuss the case with both of you.

Sonny: Yeah, yeah, look, you know, sometimes Carly wants to hear what she wants to hear. I just -- I want the truth.

Dr. Hensen: The procedure is called intracranial microelectrical stimulation.

Sonny: Okay, that's way over -- that's big words. Can you just -- what's the procedure do?

Dr. Hensen: Okay, well, we perform a craniotomy and place electrodes in the affected and surrounding area of the gunshot wound, based on computerized brain-mapping technology. These electrodes send out small amounts of electrical stimulus to stimulate the disrupted neuro pathways.

Sonny: You're losing me, Doctor. Just --

Dr. Hensen: You asked for the facts.

Sonny: I know, I know.

Dr. Hensen: It's a complex procedure.

Sonny: Can we switch to odds? What are the chances of my son waking up?

Dr. Hensen: Well, with the procedure?

Sonny: Yeah.

Dr. Hensen: Perhaps 6-10%.

Sonny: Six to ten -- that's the best you can do?

Dr. Hensen: You know, without my procedure, there's virtually no chance that your son will ever regain consciousness.

Sonny: When Carly first sent you Michael’s tests, you were hesitant. What made you change your mind?

Dr. Hensen: Well, Michael isn't my ideal patient, but he deserves a chance, if that's what his parents want for him.

Sonny: How soon can we operate?

Dr. Hensen: Well, three weeks, maybe a month.

Sonny: That's a lot of prep time.

Dr. Hensen: Mm-hmm, we'll need to monitor Michael in the meantime, perform extensive tests, map his brain. You wanted facts, Mr. Corinthos. I'm giving them to you. I make no guarantee of success, but this is Michael’s best chance.

Sonny: I understand that, but if you're wrong, then this procedure with the fancy name could kill him.

[Door closes]

Ric: Well, if it isn't the little mommy-to-be. Are those rosy cheeks, or are you just happy to see me?

Claudia: What is it going to take to get rid of you?

Ric: Oh, look at this. Oh, no, no, no, no. Oh, baby furniture? Isn't this precious? Oh, I bet you hoped that I was Sonny coming home to find you all cozy and nesting, huh?

Claudia: How long do you think you can just keep showing up here, Ric, before Sonny gets rid of you permanently?

Ric: Claudia, we need to clear the air.

Claudia: I'll tell you what. When Sonny kills you, I promise I'll show up at your funeral wearing a veil so no one can see me smile.

Ric: Is that any way to talk to the father of your child?

Claudia: The baby's Sonny's.

Ric: Oh, really? 'Cause I did the math, and it's not like you and I couldn't have made a baby, as early as the night that you tried to kill me.

Claudia: I always used protection with you, Ric.

Ric: Oh, but you didn't with Sonny, which means you were either careless or you did it deliberately.

Claudia: Sonny's my husband. We're having a baby. Get over it.

Ric: You know, Claudia, I'm willing to call your bluff and tell Sonny that this baby is mine, and hell, we'll just wait until the little bundle of joy arrives. Come on. It's not like it would matter. It's pretty much the same DNA, regardless, right?

Claudia: The baby is Sonny's, Ric, and if you try to turn him against me, I will bury you.

Ric: Oh, yeah, you know what? This really isn't a good time for you to make threats, Claudia, because I could blow you out of the water with this by simply putting doubt in Sonny's mind, because you and I both know that that doubt is justified, and on another note, if this child that you're carrying is mine, there's no way in hell I'm going to let you pass this off as my brother's.

Sonny: You're back at General Hospital, buddy. They built a whole new unit named after you to help kids just like you. This operation that could bring you back to us might not work. It could be risking your life, but I mean, what kind of life do you have now?

Sonny: Hey, buddy, if you can just give me a sign, anything, let me know exactly what to do.

Alexis: What, what, what?

Jax: Jerry's gone.

Alexis: What?

Jax: I just checked his cubicle. The bed's empty. None of the staff know where he is.

Alexis: I can't tell if you're angry or relieved.

Jax: If Jerry gets away, all this business can stay under wraps.

Alexis: I was the first person on the scene. The police are going to want to talk to me. I'll keep them busy.

Jax: Thank you.

Alexis: Mm-hmm.

Jax: Carly, Carly.

Carly: Oh, my God. Jason.

Monica: Carly, you shouldn't be here.

Carly: What happened to him?

Monica: Wait outside, please.

Carly: What happened to him?

Monica: He's got a head trauma. We may have to do surgery. We won't know until we get the test result back. Carly, are you all right? Carly, Carly?

Jax: Carly?

Kelly: Does Patrick know you're off your meds?

Robin: No, he doesn't know, and I would appreciate it if you didn't say anything. It's between us.

Kelly: Patrick needs to know for your sake and for Emma’s. You're in big trouble, Robin.

Robin: Would you stop treating me like a child? I told you that I'm fine.

Kelly: It doesn't sound that way to me.

Robin: I have got everything under control, okay?

Kelly: Okay, Robin, if you let me, I'll help you.

Robin: I just want everyone to leave me alone. Emma, Emma!
