Jason: No, I'm fine. I just got a little headache. Anything new with you?

Maxie: Uh, I called you three times. I think you're listening to my messages and just deciding not to call me back which is really unacceptable.

Jason: How are you? How are you feeling?

Maxie: Jason, after everything I've done for you, you should be helping me. I mean, I can't list them all right now, but I know that there's been a lot. You should really be taking me into consideration.

Jason: Carly, you're -- no, stop. You're the one I'm worried about. You've got to take care of yourself and the baby.

Patrick: Hey, Jax. So what did you want to see me about?

Jax: I need your help, and Carly's life could depend on it.

Luke: Look, just give it to me straight. No, look, we were getting along fine. I mean, are you telling me that it's okay to work with me, to learn from me, to hang out, be friends, but if I suddenly turn out to be your father, then what? You're going to be disappointed, angry?

Ethan: Yeah, you know, that seems to be the pattern with your kids, isn't it?

Luke: I love my kids.

Ethan: Mm-hmm.

Luke: I love my kids. I'm not perfect. Lucky and I have some problems, yes, but Lulu and I get along okay.

Ethan: Oh, you guys get along okay? That's charming.

Luke: Well, you and I get along better than okay. We were doing great. So you tell me what's the big deal? What's the difference just because I want you to take a DNA test?

Ethan: You know, there are lots of reasons, okay? One of them is that if you turn out to be my father, then you abandoned me.

Elizabeth: That was unexpected.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Lucky: Do you think anyone actually bought that?

Jax: Dr. Lee said there's a good chance Carly could suffer a fatal stroke or embolism from this ZBT.

Patrick: Okay, well, how's she handling that?

Jax: Well, she's facing it with her own mix of defiance and denial.

Patrick: Ignoring the risks?

Jax: Minimizing. She actually went down to a research hospital in South Carolina hoping to improve her odds. We'll see what the doctors have to say, and we'll take it from there.

Patrick: Did Kelly have any other recommendations?

Jax: Yes, "avoid stress" is the big one.

Patrick: Which is tough to do when Michaelís facing surgery.

Jax: Right. Dr. Hensen wants to do this experimental surgery within a month, and apparently, after that Michael starts to irreversibly deteriorate.

Patrick: Dr. Hensen's the expert on the procedure.

Jax: And you're the top neurosurgeon in the country. So I want your opinion.

Patrick: Jax, Carly took me off the case when Dr. Hensen came onboard.

Jax: And I want you back on. I want you to examine Michael, and if you agree with Dr. Hensen, I want you back on the surgical team.

Patrick: Carly is supposed to be avoiding conflict, emotional conflict. Do you really think it's a good idea rehiring the surgeon that she fired?

Jason: Yeah, of course I'll check in on Michael for you. Yeah, okay, you take care.

Maxie: Is Carly okay?

Jason: No.

Maxie: Is there anything I can do to help?

Jason: No, there's not.

Maxie: I'm trying to be nice.

Jason: Why are you here?

Maxie: Because you're not doing anything about the problem, and I think that's rude and inconsiderate.

Jason: What problem?

Maxie: Spinelli, of course. I need to get him back, and you're supposed to help me.

Jason: I already told you. This is for you guys to work out.

Maxie: If Spinelli and I could work it out, we wouldn't need you, now would we?

Jason: Well, these things take time, Maxie. How about patience?

Maxie: That is a horrible idea. I've never been patient a day in my life, and I doubt that it's going to start right now.

Jason: I can't help you.

Maxie: Well, then help Spinelli. You know that he's miserable. He's just being stubborn. I mean, he misses me as much as I miss him.

Jason: You hurt him.

Maxie: I know, and I am sorry. And I know that he wants to forgive me. He just needs a little nudge. So be his mentor, you know, the master to his grasshopper and just tell Spinelli that he needs to forgive me. I mean, it'll not only make him happy, but it'll get me off your back.

[Knock at door]

Lulu: Hey, Spinelli.

Spinelli: Precious greetings, original blonde one. What brings you here, doll-face?

Lulu: I like this office. It's simple, yet very functional.

Spinelli: Yes, and once the Jackal completes the decor, it'll be the perfect venue for crime solving.

Lulu: Where's Sam?

Spinelli: Oh, well, McCall, P.I. embarked on an investigation into procuring cold remedies for sinus congestion.

Lulu: Sam has a cold?

Spinelli: Yeah, just a mild one.

Lulu: Well, I'm sure you guys will be a big success.

Spinelli: Yeah, did fair Lulu come to offer support or does she or her roommate have need of the Jackal's services perhaps?

Lulu: I wish I could give you your first case, but I actually came here to set the record straight about me and Johnny.

Spinelli: Again, my condolences for your unfortunate breakup do to the loathsome lothario's affections for Maximista.

Lulu: That's the thing. When I gave myself some time to actually think things through, I realized that Johnny and I broke up because of our own problems.

Spinelli: Well, but problems that were exacerbated by his and Maxie's vile betrayal.

Lulu: I can't blame Maxie for something that was going to happen anyway, and Maxie's really sorry. I mean, I think as sorry as Maxie can be.

Spinelli: Actually, I'm grateful to Maxie.

Lulu: You're grateful?

Spinelli: Yeah, well, she kicked my heart into a hardened piece of gristle, and so now Jackal, P.I., like gumshoes of the past, faces the world solo.

Lulu: What are you talking about, Spinelli? You became a P.I. to prove yourself to Maxie.

Luke: Hey. All right, you met Holly. You liked her a lot. She sent you here to find me, and you found me, and you liked me, too, until now. So what's the difference if we turn out to be your parents?

Ethan: As long as my biological parents are anonymous and their identities are locked away in some file cabinet back in Australia, then I don't care about them either way.

Luke: So if they're not locked away, you have to face the way you feel about them? Look, aren't you even curious? Don't you want to look in your father's eyes and see the genetic scramble that you come from?

Ethan: If you and Holly are my parents, then I'm a bastard, okay? How many of us are there to you? Do you go chase down every bastard child you have?

Luke: All right, I've never been a dream husband. I'm a cheat. I'm a rover. But if Holly was pregnant, I swear to you I didn't know.

Ethan: You think she would've known, right? And she is more than capable of raising me, but no, she dumped me and sealed the records. So neither of you wanted anything to do with me. That makes me something shameful to you. Now that someone else has done the dirty work of raising me, you come in and expect me to fix all your problems with Lucky because he didn't turn out to be who or what you wanted him to be. So you looked to me to be a substitute. I'm not interested.

Lucky: What is this, high school? I take Rebecca out for a date, so you kiss my ex to get me back?

Elizabeth: "Ex" being the operative word. Nikolas and I are free to do whatever we want.

Lucky: I can't believe you're actually going along with this.

Nikolas: I don't know what you're talking about, Lucky. Elizabeth and I have been friends for a long time. She deserves to be treated well, and I want to be the one to do that.

Lucky: Who are you kidding? I mean, this is all about your obsession with Rebecca.

Elizabeth: Or you just want it to be -- sorry to disappoint you.

Lucky: Don't you realize Nikolas is using you?

Nikolas: You should probably stop insulting her. I mean, she's a very intelligent, very smart, not to mention very beautiful woman.

Lucky: Listen; I have been your friend, your confidant, through this entire thing.

Nikolas: Well, things change, don't they, Lucky? Ready to go?

Elizabeth: Yeah, just got to get changed.

Lucky: Listen, I am not going to stick around for this phony drama. Are you ready to get out of here?

Rebecca: Yeah, sure.

Elizabeth: Brilliant move. Now what?    

Maxie: Do you hate me? Is that why you don't want to help me?

Jason: That's not for me to tell Spinelli, to forgive you. That's up to you.

Maxie: I have said "I am sorry" to him until I am blue in the face, and I'm starting to run out of excuses to see him. You know, Spinelli actually told me if I need help with my computer, that I should go to the tech support at the magazine. And why? It's not like I'm actually interested in Johnny. He's just hot and probably good in bed.

Jason: Okay, I don't want to hear that, and for the record, Spinelli doesn't want to hear it either.

Maxie: See, that's the problem. Spinelli thinks that I am attracted to Johnny and not attracted to him, which is right on one hand and not on the other.

Jason: Are we done?

Maxie: You think I'm bad for Spinelli, right? I mean, that's why you don't want to help me.

Jason: No, I don't think you're bad. I think you're actually okay for him in your own way.

Maxie: What's that supposed to mean?

Jason: Well, I think that Spinelli got a lot of self-confidence from being with you and maybe too much because now he's out to prove himself to you. So he's off on this whole P.I. man of danger thing, and I think he can wind up getting hurt.

Maxie: Spinelli's kind of a disaster in the field.

Jason: Yeah, you and I both know that, but he is determined to show you he's as manly as Johnny.

Maxie: That's ridiculous. Spinelli's way more wonderful in a billion different ways than Johnny. No matter how many times I tell him, he never believes me. Maybe actions can help.

Jason: What do you mean actions?

Maxie: Don't worry. I got it handled.

Spinelli: I've long dreamed to hang up my P.I. shingle, to use my talents to serve the weak and downtrodden, the frail and luminously beautiful. I welcome the chance to prove myself as a dark and brooding man of action, equally as capable as --

Lulu: You don't have to prove yourself or compete with Johnny.

Spinelli: I shall not compete with the mob prince. I shall surpass him.

Lulu: Maxie likes you the way that you are.

Spinelli: Yet she's irresistibly pulled to the mob prince's 41-regular perfection like a moth to a flame, a yo-yo to a --

Lulu: I get the picture.

Spinelli: Sorry for my insensitivities.

Lulu: Look, you have amazing qualities that Johnny can't even compete with. You're Maxie's best friend. She misses you. She wants you back.

Spinelli: What possible motive could you have for pleading Maxie's case?

Lulu: I don't know. I think maybe she's just been more of a pain in the butt at work and at home since you two had your fight.

Spinelli: The ache of a broken heart is great, but I shall endure it for the greater good. This is my destiny, and I need to face the truth. Maximista was never mine to have.

Rebecca: It's not working out like we planned, and I am not so sure that I can turn it around. Look, I'm doing my best. It's not that easy. Look, I've got to go.

Lucky: I am so sorry to keep you waiting.

Rebecca: Hey, did your cop buddy say we could use his boat?

Lucky: Yeah, we're good to go.

Rebecca: Good. I can't wait for this tour of the harbor, assuming you know how to drive a speedboat -- right?

Lucky: Years of experience. How about you?

Rebecca: I'm not going to be any help. You've got life-preservers, right?

Lucky: Yeah, but don't worry. I'm not going to capsize or run us into a dock.

Rebecca: Okay, good. That's a relief.

Lucky: Well, are you ready to go?

Rebecca: Yeah.

Lucky: Well, it's just down the pier.

Rebecca: Okay. Or we could just skip the boat ride and wait for Nikolas and Elizabeth to show up on their way to the launch.

Elizabeth: Well, that felt good. I haven't made such a complete and utter fool of myself in a long time. What about you?

Nikolas: I don't feel foolish at all.

Elizabeth: Well, you should because Lucky was right. The only reason why you kissed me was to get back out at him for taking Rebecca out.

Nikolas: That is simply not true.

Elizabeth: And on the slim chance that you might make Rebecca jealous so that she'll reconsider going out with you over him.

Nikolas: Ouch.

Elizabeth: And I want you to know I played along because I'm sympathetic. So fess up.

Nikolas: Okay, fine, maybe my motives weren't completely pure.

Elizabeth: Uh-huh.

Nikolas: I'll just say this. I kissed you due in part because you've been so wonderful since Rebecca came into town, okay? I've been going through every emotion in the book, and you've been a terrific friend and a patient listener.

Elizabeth: I know this has been tough for you, but I am starting to get just a little bit worried.

Nikolas: Why, was the kiss a little much?

Elizabeth: Yeah, it was just a little much. Nikolas, Rebecca's got you acting impulsive and reactive, and that's not you. She's got your head twisted so tight, you're losing your princely cool.

Coleman: Well, look who is here. Man, good to see you guys.

Elizabeth: Hi.

Coleman: How you doing, man?

Elizabeth: Doing well.

Coleman: What can I get for you fine people?

Elizabeth: Two shots of tequila, your best, please.

Coleman: Okay, this is a combo I never expected to see.

Nikolas: Yeah, well, after all these years we didn't really see it either, Coleman, but better late than never.

Coleman: I'm right there with you, man. I guess so.

Patrick: If you recall, Jax, I was there the night Michael moved his hand.

Jax: Carly was convinced it was a sign that he was coming back, and you disagreed.

Patrick: It was an involuntarily reflex. It wasn't what Carly wanted to hear.

Jax: I know the reason why you were taken off of Michaelís case. I want you back on.

Patrick: Jax, with all due respect, it's not your call. Michael's parents get to decide the course of treatment.

Jax: Listen to me. Carly has confidence in you, regardless of what she said that night. We want what's best for Michael. Now this procedure has only been done on 10 patients and two of them died. I don't want Michael to be the third.

Patrick: I've never done this procedure.

Jax: But you're skilled at high-risk surgeries. I mean, you've already proven that. You saved Jasonís life. So in Carly's eyes, you're already a miracle worker.

Patrick: Jax, I don't want to dwell on worst-case scenarios, but you understand that if this procedure fails --

Jax: Yes, of course. Regardless what the outcome, I just know that it would help Carly if you're on the team.

Patrick: Okay, I'll do it.

Jax: Thank you. Thank you.

[Knock at door]

Dr. Hensen: Mr. Jacks, you asked to see me.

Jax: Yes, I was just discussing Michaelís case with Dr. Drake. He's agreed to be part of the surgical team.

Dr. Hensen: Well, it will be good to have you onboard, not that Mr. Jacks gave me any choice.    

Spinelli: Oh -- gracious greetings. I just want to assure Stone Cold that his investment is fully secure. McCall and Jackal P.I. is almost fully operational.

Jason: All right, I'm going to come by. I'll take a look.

Spinelli: Yeah, you're most welcome. I was also hoping that Stone Cold might provide the critical item that every man of danger  must possess.

Jason: We've had this discussion already, Spinelli. No gun.

Spinelli: No, but just listen.

Jason: No, I'm not going to listen. You tried to take a gun out of here the other day. It's too dangerous.

Spinelli: But, you know, I could easily procure a licensed weapon, but Stone Cold, I'd much rather receive one from you, a passing of the torch as it were. It is a sign that the master has full faith in my manly prowess.

Jason: I do have faith in you, okay, but being a man is not about carrying a gun.

Spinelli: Yeah, but I would be responsible. It would never be fired unless absolutely necessary, and since you're such an expert marksman, you can teach me.

Jason: You are the smartest person that I know, and you have to understand that being able to carry a gun, being able to shoot somebody, is not something to admire.

Spinelli: No, I'm aware of that, and I have learned much. I would never ever shoot myself in the foot again.

Jason: It's not about you. Even the most experienced marksman can hurt or kill somebody by accident. Michael is in a coma because a bullet ricocheted.

Jason: Do you trust me?

Spinelli: Implicitly and without reservation.

Jason: Then trust me when I say that you are good enough to do this job without a gun.

Nikolas: Wow.

Elizabeth: Why are you smiling or do I not want to know?

Nikolas: No, it's just that after all these years, I don't think we've gone out drinking before, have we?

Elizabeth: Well, throwing back shots at Jakeís isn't really your style.

Nikolas: It's not yours either, is it?

Elizabeth: This is where we come to have our girl's night out. Let me tell you. It gets pretty wild in here.

Nikolas: Really? I would love to see it.

Elizabeth: I'm sure you would. We've come a long way from toasting brownies at Kellyís.

Nikolas: Oh, my God. We had so much fun, didn't we?

Elizabeth: Mm-hmm.

Nikolas: Between the brownies and the good company, it doesn't get much better than that.

Elizabeth: Sometimes I am so glad the past is behind us and other times I would give anything to relive it.

Nikolas: Why? You've got so much going on in the present, great kids, a job you love -- why?

Elizabeth: No one to share it with.

Nikolas: Do you want someone?

Elizabeth: I don't know. My breakup with Lucky was so painful, and then when I ended things with Jason, it just left me feeling heartbroken and lonely and really stupid.

Nikolas: But yet, there was Lucky waiting in the wings.

Elizabeth: Part of me would love to get back together with him, and part of me is so scared to go down that path again because we just can't seem to get it right. I just don't think I could commit to him again knowing that we're going to crash and burn and, this time, take the kids down with us.

Rebecca: If this is only about sticking it to Nikolas and Elizabeth, then why don't we take a pass?

Lucky: I was hoping they'd walk by us on the way to the Wyndemere launch. I guess that makes me as juvenile as my brother.

Rebecca: Admit it, Lucky. You're just going out with me to one-up Nikolas.

Lucky: That's not true.

Rebecca: So, what, just a wild coincidence that out of all the women in Port Charles, you ask the one that looks just like your brother's dead wife to go on a boat ride?

Lucky: No, your resemblance has nothing to do why I asked you out.

Rebecca: Right.

Lucky: Rebecca, what I know about you is that you're smart. You're fun, and you love to hear live music, and I like this whole tough act. I'm not ready to propose marriage. I just wanted to go out on a boat ride. So what do you say?

Rebecca: All right, let's do it.

Luke: Ethan, take the damn DNA test. Don't be chicken. Stand up. Be a man. Face whatever truth comes out of this.

Ethan: Yeah, that's rich coming from you. You don't even like being a dad. So why the sudden burning desire to prove something neither of us want to know?

Luke: I want to know. I need to know, and for some crazy demented reason, I like the idea of being your dad.

Ethan: Look, if this is some midlife crisis, do the normal thing and buy a sports car.

Luke: I've got the car I like, and I don't need your five cent psychiatric examination. If it turns out that you and I are father and son, I'm not going to start handing out parental advice. I swear to you. I'm not going to try to control your life.

Ethan: So then why even bother? Why can't we go back to how it was?

Tracy: I think Mr. Lovett has a really good point.

Ethan: Mrs. Spencer, what brings you here?

Tracy: Concern.

Luke: I have this handled, Tracy.

Tracy: Really? It looked like you were getting nowhere.

Tracy: You want to know the oddest part of this? I find myself really hoping you're sincere, but I guess that's the mark of a really good con.

Ethan: I neither want nor need to know if that man is my father.

Tracy: Prove it. Get on the plane.  You came here to take a flight to Australia. Get moving. You don't want to delay the boarding process.

Luke: Tracy, you need to butt out of this.

Tracy: There's no upside to it, Luke. You don't like being a father. He doesn't want to take a DNA test. Drop it.

Luke: You don't like the idea of me having a permanent link to Holly.

Tracy: He's a con, and you are too emotional to see it.

Luke: All right, you want to go? Go, but this is always going to bug you. You will always wonder. This is the mystery you didn't have the guts to solve. One quick trip to the hospital, and all this will be behind you. We'll know the truth, and if it turns out that we are father and son and you still want to go, I'll buy your ticket.

Coleman: Let's top these off for you folks.

Elizabeth: Thank you. Just be careful because somebody is getting drunk over here.

Nikolas: Oh, speak for yourself.

Coleman: I'll tell you what. I will just leave the bottle right here for your drinking pleasure.

Elizabeth: Oh, lovely.

Coleman: All right?

Elizabeth: Thanks.

Nikolas: Thank you. All right.

Elizabeth: Cheers.

Nikolas: Cheers. Yeah.

Nikolas: So, technically -- well, not technically, but we are two very unattached, available people.

Elizabeth: Oh, well, I am very unattached. You -- well, you'll always have Emily.

Nikolas: I told you. I'm past that with Rebecca.

Elizabeth: Are you going to try and tell me, really, that it doesn't bother you in the slightest that you are staring at Emilyís face?

Nikolas: No, in the beginning, it was everything, okay, but now that I see how different she is, I'm intrigued by Rebecca for herself, right?

Elizabeth: Oh, okay, it sounds like a big fat rationalization to me.

Nikolas: Okay, if this were all about filling a void that Emily left, then well, I would be with you, for real.

Elizabeth: Me?

Nikolas: Yeah, you're the closest thing that I have to Emily. You were her best friend. You have the same way of looking at things and the same way of talking, the same way of teasing me. You feel her loss the same way I do. I know that I can talk to you about her and you understand how I'm feeling. Sometimes when we're together, I don't miss Emily for a while.

Elizabeth: Thank you. I guess.

Patrick: Your reputation precedes you, Dr. Hensen. I looked over your research in several of the medical journals.

Dr. Hensen: I've heard about you, too. You have a reputation for technical brilliance.

Patrick: You say that like it's a bad thing.

Dr. Hensen: You skate very close to the edge, Dr. Drake. You take big, some would say irresponsible, chances with your patients.

Patrick: I'm the best at what I do. You can see my records for that.

Dr. Hensen: I'm aware that your win column is long and impressive, but that could mean that you are simply overdue to fail.

Patrick: Well, Michaelís parents would disagree.

Dr. Hensen: I've gone over Michaelís records, and I'd like to follow up on some consultation notes by a Dr. Robin --

Patrick: Scorpio. Dr. Scorpio is my wife. She's on an extended sabbatical, but we worked close on the case. I can help you with her assessment.

Dr. Hensen: I have to ask. Why were you so willing to give up on Michael? Was it the severity of his condition or a lack of confidence that you could do anything about it?

Patrick: You don't mince words, do you, Dr. Hensen?

Dr. Hensen: I just like to know who I'm dealing with from the outset.

Patrick: Well, I'm not in the business of giving people false hope.

Dr. Hensen: Neither am I. My procedure is risky and cutting edge, but it can work, and it's the only chance Michael has.

[Knock on door]

Jax: Hey, I'm here about Carly. I'm sure she'll be calling you if she hasn't already.

Jason: Yeah, she did. She called me for some research hospital in South Carolina. Said they might have some type of treatment that could reduce the risk of her pregnancy.

Jax: Right, of course Sonny wants her to terminate the pregnancy. Actually, we came to blows over it.

Jason: Well, he's worried about Carly.

Jax: Yeah, well, so am I, but it's our decision to make, not his. Now I'm sure that he's going to ask you to pressure Carly into having an abortion, but she really wants to have this baby, Jason, and trying to talk her out of it will only cause her more stress, and that could literally kill her.

Jason: I'm going to do what's best for Carly.

Jax: I know you will. That's why I'm going to have to ask you, for Carly's sake, not to go after my brother.

Spinelli: Maximi -- Maxie, are you looking for me?

Maxie: I need your help.

Spinelli: Oh, well, start from the beginning.

Maxie: Come on, Spinelli, please don't be this way with me, okay? I'm really scared. I think my life is in danger.

Spinelli: What makes you think so?

Maxie: Well, I'm being stalked.

Spinelli: Stalked?

Maxie: Yeah, I think it's from all those stupid publicity appearances that I'm doing for "Crimson." You know, I'm in the public eye, and my picture's all over the internet. There's a lot of crazies out there, Spinelli.

Spinelli: Well, what suspicious events have occurred?

Maxie: Well, I keep getting these phone calls really late at night, answer, you know, there's nobody on the other end. I just hear this breathing, and then they hang up, and I'm pretty sure I'm being followed because I hear footsteps sometimes. And the other day when I was shopping, I could have sworn that somebody was staring at me through a window.

Spinelli: This is most alarming indeed.

Maxie: Yeah, I know. I didn't know where else to go or who to turn to, and I know that you would do whatever you could to protect me. I mean, you would never let anyone hurt me, right, Spinelli?

Spinelli: Fear not. Jackal P.I. will keep you from harm.

Lucky: Ah, land.

Rebecca: So thank you for letting me take the wheel.

Lucky: The first and last time.

Rebecca: Yeah, are you sore that I drove so fast?

Lucky: No.

Rebecca: No one was watching, you know.

Lucky: That -- did you see the guy in the white boat that had harbormaster written on it? He was watching.

Rebecca: But it was fun, right?

Lucky: It was.

Rebecca: Yeah, and you're really good with boats, you know.

Lucky: Well, I've had years of experience.

Rebecca: Mm-hmm. Who taught you?

Lucky: My dad. We dodged the coastguard, you know, and we always stayed ahead of the guys that he swindled or ticked off.

Rebecca: Oh.

Lucky: It was kind of the way we lived back then.

Rebecca: It sounds like an exciting life.

Lucky: Well, if you're ever on the run from smugglers, I'm your guy.

Rebecca: Look, I want to thank you for letting me break the speed limit, so I'm buying.

Lucky: Buying, hmm?

Rebecca: Mm-hmm.

Lucky: It's going to have to be someplace casual.

Rebecca: Yeah, I have just the venue in mind. Come on.

Elizabeth: You know what you're doing to me?

Nikolas: No, what?

Elizabeth: Exactly the same thing that you're doing to Rebecca. You're comparing us to Emily.

Nikolas: Do you mind?

Elizabeth: Actually, I kind of like it, 'cause Emily and I talked about everything.

Nikolas: Everything?

Elizabeth: Everything. Yeah, she used to tell me things like what a great kisser you were --

Nikolas: Now, now, now, I don't need to hear this.

Elizabeth: And your first time at the park when she grabbed you and she just shoved her tongue down your throat, and she thought that you were so hot and manly --

Nikolas: Oh, she said that? She said that, huh?

Elizabeth: And strong and how perfect your lips are and your eyes -- how beautiful they are when she would look into them.

Nikolas: Okay, I don't need to hear this anymore. We're done.

Elizabeth: You know, you waited a long time for that first kiss, and it lived up to all of her fantasies, and let me tell you, I have to admit, I thought for a while that she was exaggerating at least a little until today when you kissed me.

Winnifred: Oh, might the Jackal be working on a paying case?

Spinelli: Yes, indeed. McCall and Jackal, P.I., have their first client.

Winnifred: Oh, most auspicious news. What is the nature of the case?

Spinelli: A fair damsel is being stalked by a depraved fan.

Winnifred: Oh, how exciting and mysterious.

Spinelli: Yes, and I am determined to save our beautiful and vulnerable client.

Winnifred: Thus leading to future cases and a sterling reputation as crime solvers extraordinaire.

Spinelli: I'm sorry. Forgive my concentration. It's just that time may be of the essence. The stalker is becoming more obsessed after every public appearance that the damsel makes.

Winnifred: Okay, that's a classic trigger -- you know, for an unhinged fan. For whom is she making these public appearances?

Spinelli: Um, "Crimson" magazine.

Winnifred: Does the Jackal not find the timing somewhat convenient that Ms. Jones should find herself in need of his professional services so soon after he decided to chill their personal dealings?

Spinelli: The timing is irrelevant. Danger never takes a holiday. Maximista is counting on the Jackal to save her.

Man: I'm a photographer's assistant, not a stalker.

Maxie: But you look exactly like one.

Man: My girlfriend likes how I look.

Maxie: I'm sure she does, but you're missing the point. If you do this for me, you and your photographer can shoot the next accessories layout for ďCrimson."

Man: I don't want to get beaten up.

Maxie: Oh, trust me. You're not going to get hurt. This guy is completely harmless. His karate chop couldn't break a potato chip. Besides, it will be worth it for the boost in your career.

Man: What exactly would I have to do?

Maxie: Show up here tonight at 7:00 and attack me. Spinelli will come to my rescue, and I'll collapse in his arms, and he'll realize that we're meant to be together.  

Luke: Nurse Johnson.

Epiphany: Don't even think about it.

Luke: Think about what?

Epiphany: You conned me into bending the hospital rules once for you with that phony heart attack of yours. I'm not going to fall for any more of your tricks, Luke Spencer.

Luke: No, no, no, nurse. This is not a trick. I respect your ethics, and I -- well, I do, and I respect that you don't want to break these precious hospital rules. No, I'm simply here because my young friend and I would like to take a test.

Epiphany: What kind?

Luke: DNA.

Epiphany: And what are we testing for?

Tracy: Oh, please. He wants to know if they're father and son.

[Epiphany laughs]

Jason: I can still find Jerry. Carly never has to know about it.

Jax: And what if Jerry kills you? How do you think Carly will feel about that?

Jason: I'm not really worried about that.

Jax: Well, I'm worried about that because she shouldn't have any more stress in her life until the baby's born. It's already enough that Michaelís procedure's coming up in a month. Okay, that is enough strain for Carly.

Jason: Okay, what are you asking me exactly?

Jax: You wait. Stay here. Help her through the procedure with Michael. Help her through the pregnancy, okay? As much as I hate to admit it, Jason, Carly needs you. Look, after Carly and the baby are safe, you can track Jerry down and do whatever it is you do. I don't want to know about it, but I give you my word that I won't interfere.

Patrick: I'm concerned by this set of markers. Michael's NSD levels are dropping.

Dr. Hensen: That shouldn't be a factor.

Patrick: Well, unless it's the first symptom of a major decline.

Dr. Hensen: Your concern seems out of proportion to the severity of the problem. Michael is remarkably stable. He can wait the month we need to properly prepare for surgery. The other tests already run on him support this conclusion.

Patrick: Well, I think Michael is running out of time faster than you realized.

Elizabeth: You know, that kiss at the hospital really caught me off guard.

Nikolas: Yeah?

Elizabeth: Mm-hmm.

Nikolas: Well, that's what you might call a spur of the moment decision.

Elizabeth: Oh, really? That's what that was?

Nikolas: Mm-hmm.

Elizabeth: Yeah, you're lousy at subter --

Nikolas: Hmm?

Elizabeth: Um --

Nikolas: Come on. Use your words. Sound it out.

Elizabeth: Subter -- sufferfuge? I don't know. You know -- you're a really bad plotter and schemer, and you're a disgrace to the Cassadine name.

Nikolas: Thank you so much.

Elizabeth: You're welcome.

Nikolas: Why didn't we see it before?

Elizabeth: What?

Nikolas: I don't know. You're free. I'm free. Lucky's made it clear that he's ready to move on. Rebecca wants nothing to do with me. Here we are, you and me, with all this history together.

Elizabeth: Yeah, we're just two people who like having fun together.

Nikolas: So much fun.

Elizabeth: So much fun, yeah.

Nikolas: It's easy. It's comfortable. It's -- we're practically best friends.

Elizabeth: Practically? I mean, come on. We are best friends.

Nikolas: Right, we are. So all we would really have to do is make that one small shift and see each other through different eyes, right?

Elizabeth: Yeah.

Nikolas: Come on.

Lucky: Oh, my goodness --
