Holly: You found me sooner than I thought you would.
Luke: Really? You wound me. You'd have to be thicker than a right pillock not to have followed that last clue. I knew where you were.
Patrick: Oh, okay, so heís the person in crisis?
Holly: Or maybe not.
[Knock on door]
Sam: I have some surveillance photos for Spinelli to look at.
Jason: Heís out.
Sam: You're sitting here in the dark. Whatís going on? Uh-oh, this is bad.
Jason: No, itís a miracle. Michael woke up.
Michael: You should've been here when I woke up, but you weren't. While I was stuck in this place, you were at home with him, talking about the baby you're going to have to replace me.
Jax: Michael, be fair to your mother. That is not --
Michael: I don't want her here.
Carly: Okay, you don't mean that.
Jax: All right, take it easy.
Carly: Baby, you don't mean that. I'm okay.
Michael: You hear him? Be careful not to hurt the baby thatís going to replace me.
Carly: Michael, stop that.
Jax: Your mother almost died trying to save you, Michael. Sheís been by your bedside night and day --
Sonny: Jax. Jax, what the hell are you doing?
Holly: Ethan, would you be a love and pour me some more champagne? And why don't you get some for yourself and for your -- for Luke.
Luke: Thatís a risky maneuver, English. You know, I can still drink you under this or any other table.
Holly: Your memory is playing tricks on you. I clearly remember vodka shots in Helsinki, hurricanes in the Markham Islands, champagne in Singapore. I more than held my own.
Luke: All roads lead back to Singapore with you, don't they, beautiful?
Patrick: Whoa, whoa, Luke, easy on the lady.
Holly: Don't be unchivalrous, Luke. You might scare me off.
Luke: You don't look scared. You look delicious and desperately devious.
Holly: You always appreciated that about me.
Ethan: Any chance we can get some answers here?
Luke: Uh, yeah, we're going somewhere private. I'll tell you what I find out.
Ethan: Not without me.
Luke: This is our past.
Ethan: And itís my life.
Patrick: And itís my living room. So why don't you all just sit the hell down so we can get some answers here.
Singer: Would you like it would you would you like it
Johnny: I don't want you to regret this.
Olivia: I'll only regret it if you stop.
Singer: Would you like it would you would you like it would you like it if you stayed all night turn down the lights made you feel all right
Sonny: My son just had surgery. Why are you jumping on him?
Jax: You and I need to have a word outside.
Sonny: You going to be okay, buddy?
Sonny: You need anything?
Michael: I said I'm okay.
Carly: Okay, you want to tell me why you're so mad at me?
Michael: You're not supposed to get upset.
Carly: All right, then letís talk calmly and quietly like we used to. This baby that I'm carrying is not meant to replace you, Michael. No one could ever replace you.
Michael: What did Jax mean when he said that you almost died?
Carly: Well, after surgery, I was here a lot and there are just a lot of complications with this pregnancy, but itís okay.
Michael: Could it kill you?
Carly: I don't want to talk about that right now, okay? I don't want to talk about that right now.
Michael: Right, right, I get it. No one tells me anything.
Carly: Michael, the only thing that you need to know is that you're okay and you're better and you're back. And the doctors said it wouldn't happen, and then you beat the odds. And that is all I've ever wanted.
Michael: Right. You wanted it so bad that you just left me here.
Sam: One thing about you, you are consistent. The beer -- same shelf in the fridge. That blue bowl -- you keep your little spare key to your motorcycle. Everybody is out celebrating good news and you're sitting in here reading between the lines. I just don't really know exactly what about Michaelís awesome recovery has your attention right now.
Jason: Michael is awake and talking. Thatís all I wanted.
Sam: Okay. Does he remember anything?
Jason: He knows who he is, but, you know, he can't remember how this happened to him. Itís not that uncommon.
Sam: Okay, I mean, the surgery worked.
Jason: Yes, itís like every prayer had been answered. Sonny and Carly were in there hugging on him. Edward and Monica come in and they're all over the kid.
Sam: All right, I get it. They're smothering him.
Jason: Itís okay. They have a right to be happy and they should be. I can just see that they're going to make this even harder on Michael.
Jason: How? The guilt in that room was thick enough to cut. Everybody was falling all over themselves to make up for the damage that was done. I don't think that Michael is strong enough to deal with it yet.
Patrick: Okay, you start talking.
Ethan: I was tending bar at a resort, playing poker on the side for some extra cash when Holly blows in and cleans me out.
Holly: Would you have rathered I let you win?
Ethan: No, but I should have made you for somebody who was looking for me.
Luke: Did she try to seduce you?
Luke: Well, thatís where you missed your first clue.
Holly: Luke, heís young enough to be --
Luke: To be your son.
Holly: Oh, you think you're so clever.
Patrick: Okay, Luke, whatís your part in this? Did you and her --
Luke: Oh, yeah, and it was glorious. We both thought we were living on borrowed time.
Holly: We thought we were going to die.
Luke: We were both running for our lives.
Holly: In Singapore.
Luke: Why didn't you tell me you were pregnant?
Holly: Who says that I was?
Ethan: So you werenít.
Holly: Letís not make assumptions. I need more champagne.
Patrick: Okay, well, I've heard enough. Thereís a very, very simple solution to all this.
Sam: Michael woke up. You said it before, and thatís a miracle.
Jason: It is. I mean, I remember what that was like, waking up surrounded by people I didn't know.
Sam: All right, well, look. Michael does remember. He knows his mother, his father, the Quartermaines.
Jason: Right, but he doesn't understand how they're reacting to him. I mean, everybody who cared about Michael had to move forward. Time stopped for him. Heís confused. Itís not like he just woke up and he knows everybody, he knows what happened, and now life is perfect.
Sam: I know. I know. Itís -- this is huge. I mean, itís not only that he has to deal with a physical recovery, but heís got to make an emotional adjustment now. Heís going to need help, Jason, support, therapy. But most important, that boy is going to need you.
Carly: I am so sorry that you feel like I abandoned you. And I'm so sorry that I wasn't here when you woke up, but I never once gave up hope that you were going to come back to us, not once. And look at you. You're my handsome little baby. And you are, whether you like it or not, you're my baby. And you come second to no one, Michael, second to no one.
Michael: Then why did you let Jax take you away? Why weren't you here when I woke up?
Sonny: Michael has been to hell and back. Heís struggling. If anybody is going to help him, itís going to be the adults.
Jax: Well, you wouldn't feel that way if he was attacking you the way he is Carly.
Sonny: You think I like that heís attacking his mother? It doesn't help that you're jumping all over him.
Jax: Carly worked herself into a state over all of this.
Sonny: Okay. Sheís your wife. Handle it. You know what to do.
Jax: Yeah, I'll try to take her home before this miracle turns into a tragedy.
Carly: Jax never took me away. Itís hard. You know, you had the surgery and you survived, but you didn't wake up and Dr. Drake said that you never would.
Michael: So you said good-bye and let Jax take you away.
Carly: No, no, I never ever said good-bye to you. Not once since you were hurt, I never said good-bye. I never ever gave up hope that you were going to come back to us. Believe me, I never ever gave up on you. I never gave up on you.
Jax: You know, Michael should probably get some rest. Itís been an exhausting day for everyone.
Carly: I'm going to stay here.
Michael: I don't want you to.
Carly: Okay. I'll go, but I'm going to come back in the morning, Michael -- every morning, just like always. I don't care how mad you are at me because you're awake and you're going to get better. So you know what? You go to sleep tonight and you know how much I love you.
Jax: We're all glad that you're back, Michael. Try to get some rest. We'll see you in the morning, okay? Good night.
Sonny: Do not be mad at your mother. If you're going to be mad at anybody, you be mad at me.
Patrick: The good thing is, Luke, you don't need Holly.
Holly: With respect, you don't really know what he needs.
Ethan: I want to hear Patrickís solution.
Patrick: Okay, you two, you get a DNA test.
Luke: We already did that.
Ethan: It came up negative.
Luke: I guarantee you Tracy fixed the results.
Patrick: Then, fine, you get another one. You get 12 if you need to.
Luke: No, we don't need any more tests, Doctor. We need the truth, and we need to hear it from these rosebud lips.
Ethan: I want to hear my mother say sheís my mother and know that somewhere, sometime, she gave a damn about me.
Holly: Ethan, I'm sorry, but you're missing the point here. Luke needs to prove that heís serious about this, about you.
Luke: How? By paying for the answer?
Holly: With Tracyís money. Thatís key. If you're not willing to risk your wifeís displeasure, you can't really care that much about what I know.
Olivia: Did we just do what we just did?
Johnny: If you got to ask, I did it wrong.
Olivia: I'm sorry. I just -- I guess I never saw myself as a cougar.
Johnny: I don't see you that way either.
Olivia: Stop. I got a son almost as old as you.
Johnny: What difference does that make? You seeing anybody?
Olivia: You mean like going steady? No. You?
Johnny: I broke up with my girlfriend -- my ex-girlfriend, a couple of weeks back.
Olivia: I'm sorry.
Johnny: Thatís all right. Thank you. Sheís probably better off. I don't do long-term relationships. Eventually, you just end up keeping secrets from each other.
Olivia: Oh, yeah, secrets. They have a tendency to get in the way, don't they?
Olivia: And then I wind up naked in bed with some kid I hardly know.
Johnny: Oh, sorry.
Olivia: I'm not complaining. The girls in the neighborhood used to say, "Olivia, the only thing between you and a tramp is two martinis and a belt buckle."
Johnny: Thatís good.
Olivia: Thatís not funny.
Olivia: You're so cute. Just to prove that I'm not a tramp, I'm going to make us some dinner.
Johnny: You don't have to do that.
Olivia: I don't have to do anything. But I figure I slept with you, I might as well get to know you, right?
Johnny: I'd like that.
Olivia: All right. All right.
Olivia: Give me a blanket.
Olivia: Believe it or not, I do have some modesty.
Johnny: Please, you got to be kidding me, modesty.
Olivia: Give it.
Johnny: No, make me.
Singer: Would you like it would you would you like it
Jax: Hey, howís Morgan?
Carly: He wants to see his brother.
Jax: I don't know who to be worried about more.
Carly: Yeah, he doesn't really get it. He just wants to have his big brother back. Michaelís angry, you know. Heís just so angry.
Jax: Just give him time, Carly, okay? Heís got a lot to process.
Jax: We can't take his behavior personally.
Carly: I know. Heís so angry because I wasn't there, you know. And I can't really blame him. I should've been there when he woke up. My God, I should've been there when he woke up.
Jax: No, you couldn't have known.
Carly: I knew better. I knew it. I knew this was going to happen.
Jax: You know, sometimes after a brain trauma, there can be a change in personality. Michael has always had a bit of a temper, maybe itís been intensified.
Carly: Yeah. But, you know, no matter how angry he is and no matter what kind of head trauma, my son knows I love him. He knows it.
Sam: How did Michael seem to you?
Jason: Scared, confused, a little disconnected.
Sam: Now, do you remember what it was like for you?
Jason: Yeah, I was overwhelmed. And so is Michael. I can see it. Everybody walks in with these expectations. Itís going to be impossible for him to meet any type of expectations at this point. He doesn't even know what happened to him. The only thing he knows is that everything has changed around him.
Sam: Yeah, itís a lot to absorb.
Jason: Yeah, yeah, it is. And Sonny -- you know, I know that he loves Michael, but heís so eaten up with guilt right now, I just think heís going to make things worse.
Sam: All right, speaking of Sonny, has he told Michael about Claudia or the baby or marriage --
Jason: No, nothing, not yet.
Sam: Thatís great. Heís going to have to do that sometime.
Jason: He wants to tell Michael about the shooting first. And I don't think thatís going to help Michael at all.
Michael: Why should I be mad at you? Don't you love me?
Sonny: Look, I couldn't not love you more. What are you talking about?
Michael: I'm your guy, right?
Sonny: You're right. You are my guy.
Michael: You always tell me the truth, Dad. I need to know what happened to me.
Sonny: Hey, I promise you I'm going to tell you. Not now.
Michael: You're just like Mom. She treats me like a baby, like I can't handle the truth.
Sonny: You need to rest because thatís what the doctor --
Michael: I can't. I'll just lay here and think about all the bad things that could have happened to me. Was there a car accident? Did I fall somewhere?
Michael: I remember who I am. I remember all of you. I just can't remember how I got here and itís driving me crazy.
Sonny: Do you remember coming to meet me at the warehouse, huh?
Michael: But I've -- I mean, I've been there a bunch of times. I know what you do, your work. I know what you and Jason do.
Sonny: I promised that it would never touch you, and I couldn't keep that promise.
Michael: Did I do something wrong?
Sonny: No, you didn't do anything. You and Kate came. You remember Kate?
Sonny: You came to the warehouse. I wanted to show you how the business worked.
Michael: I wish I remembered.
Sonny: I'm glad you didn't, buddy.
Michael: I need to know what happened.
Sonny: We were all there -- you, me, Kate. And there was some workmen. And there was another person there that nobody knew. He was hiding and he had a rifle. He wanted to shoot me. The bullet missed, hit you in the head. So itís absolutely my fault that you got shot and that that happened. You almost died because of what I did.
Luke: So you want me to use my wifeís money to buy the truth about this boyís paternity. English, you're a laugh riot.
Holly: I did my research. She can afford it.
Ethan: Oh, I get it. You want Tracy so broke and pissed off that she'll kick this cad to the curb.
Holly: Smart boy. He reminds me of you.
Patrick: Well, thatís it. I don't need a DNA test to prove that you guys are family. Itís obvious -- you're all crazy. Luke, congratulations -- itís a boy. Now, I'm going upstairs to kiss my daughter, call my wife, and celebrate the ordinary joys of domesticity. And I never thought I'd say that before. Enjoy.
Luke: So your perfect scam here is that you and I take Tracyís money and we ride off into the sunset, together. And what about artful dodger? We leave him here?
Holly: Is that a trick question?
Luke: The question is, are the three of us related?
Sam: Well, you've got to love Sonny. Itís not enough that Michael came out of the coma, that heís got to make it all about himself and his own guilt. This kid needs a father whoís going to be solid right now, caring and compassionate, not someone whoís going to unload all over him.
Jason: Sonny wants to tell Michael the truth. He doesn't want to lie.
Sam: Okay, and the last thing that Sonny thinks that he deserves is a kid thatís going to worship him. Come on, don't look at me like that. We both know itís true. Itís very twisted.
Jason: Okay, Michael -- he wants to know what happened. I think we should tell him the truth. I just think itís too soon to say anything.
Sam: Yeah, but the question is, how much can Michael actually handle, and what are the chances that he can relapse and go back into a coma?
Carly: Michael thinks that I gave up on him.
Jax: Well, thatís funny, because you're the only one who didn't.
Carly: He thinks we left the hospital to focus on the new baby and just forget about him.
Jax: You know thatís not true. Look, when we left the room today, we had every reason to believe that he wasn't going to wake up.
Carly: I knew better, Jax. In my heart, I knew it, I knew it.
Jax: Well, then, I'm the one who should feel bad, because I'm the one who dragged you away from his bedside. Look, we'll explain it to Michael, and he will understand why you weren't there when he woke up. Just give him time, okay? Just give it time.
Carly: When he woke up, he must have been so scared and confused. Can you just imagine? I have to go back to the hospital.
Jax: No, no, no, you've been through enough for one day, and so has Michael --
Carly: I have to go back to the hospital. I cannot let Michael go to bed thinking that I have abandoned him. I have to make sure that he knows how much I love him.
Sonny: It was supposed to be me. It should have been me. Patrick did everything he could, but --
Michael: I thought you said the surgery worked.
Sonny: It did, but this -- this wasn't the first time.
Michael: How long ago was I shot?
Sonny: A long time ago. You know, it was more than a year. You were in a coma. We did everything we could. We prayed for you. We hoped for the best. The doctors said you didn't have a chance.
Michael: A year? Thatís why I'm so weak. I've been in bed for more than a year.
Sonny: I'm sorry, buddy. It was my -- I should have never -- I should have never had you come to that warehouse. I'm your father, you know, and I put you at risk. If thereís one thing that I wanted to do right in my life -- I was supposed to do better.
Michael: You couldn't have known.
Sonny: Your mother wouldn't have let you come to that warehouse. I ignored the danger. I was supposed to protect you, and I failed.
Michael: Stuff happens.
Sonny: Stuff happens? This is not "stuff," buddy. We're talking about your life. I almost lost you. You get that? I am so sorry.
Michael: You don't have to keep saying that.
Sonny: I can't say it enough.
Sonny: You are the most precious thing in my life.
Sonny: I don't even have the right to ask your forgiveness.
Johnny: So you just whipped this up out of nothing?
Olivia: Well, thereís an old saying in my neighborhood. "A woman who learns to cook rich keeps a poor man at home."
Johnny: I like that.
Olivia: What can I say; I'm a product of my environment.
Johnny: Yeah, so am I, only I didn't have much of a neighborhood.
Olivia: Well, you must have had some memories.
Johnny: I call them mistakes.
Olivia: Hmm. Well, sooner or later, you'll figure out that you can't go back and do any of them over, so you just move on.
Johnny: Yeah, well, sometimes if you're lucky, they get undone for you.
Olivia: Okay, I'm not going to ask what that meant, about that, because you know what? This is a safe zone. We check our angst at the door. Hot and cold running pasta, and a shower -- help yourself.
Johnny: I think I might.
Olivia: You know, maybe we should try this again sometime sober.
Johnny: I'd like that.
Olivia: Yeah. And probably a good idea if we just keep this to ourselves. You know, considering our respective ties to certain people, not that itís anyone elseís business.
Olivia: But whatís one more secret?
Sam: I'm sorry. I'm really -- really, really, I am sorry. You have enough on your mind, so many things to deal with. I shouldn't have said that. I'm bringing you down. I'm sure Michaelís going to be fine.
Jason: Well, nobody knows for sure. But Patrick was confident about the procedure. He just, you know, told us to take it easy on Michael.
Sam: Okay, so then, why aren't you at the hospital running interference right now?
Jason: Thereís nothing I can do. Sonnyís drowning in guilt. Carlyís tearing herself apart. I said what I had to say. I'm just going to try to stay out of this.
Sam: I don't -- I don't believe that.
Jason: I'm not Michaelís father.
Michael: It wasn't your fault. The bullet missed you. You didn't want me to get shot.
Sonny: You have no idea what happened.
Michael: Yes, I do, Dad.
Sonny: No, you don't, I mean -- you don't.
Michael: That time I stole that gun, I didn't want to hurt Kate. I didn't mean to. You told me over and over again that it wasn't my fault. I believed you.
Sonny: You were -- you're a kid. I'm your father. I'm responsible.
Michael: You're not responsible for the whole world. If you would have known about that guy, you would have stopped him. So you didn't do anything wrong, Dad.
Sonny: I don't deserve a kid like you.
Michael: You got me. And if you need forgiveness, I forgive you. I know you love me, Dad.
Sonny: Itís going to be different this time around. I swear to you, I'm not going to fail you again. I'm going to make it up to you. I'm going to give you the moon and the sun.
Sonny: I love you, son.
Sonny: Thank you.
Michael: I love you, too.
Ethan: Okay, look, l as eager as I am to find out if you two are my parents, I don't think itís worth Luke wrecking his marriage over.
Luke: Duly noted. Thank you, joey, now bounce out of here. We need some privacy.
Ethan: Oh, this isn't even your house.
Luke: Oh, right. Okay, well, come, we have negotiations to do somewhere else.
Holly: You know how much I'd love to be with you, with Ethan, or "dodger," as you call him -- which is such a cute nickname, by the way. Itís almost paternal. But I digress. Um, there will be no adventures or revelations until the finances are in place.
Luke: You drive a hard bargain, woman.
Holly: I'm all business when it comes to Tracyís money. First, my reward, and then yours.
Luke: I hope you were taking notes, son. You've just seen a master con woman at the top of her game.
Ethan: So whatís our next move?
Luke: Now you buckle down for the ride of your life.
Sam: Michael is going to be okay. You know how I know? Because no matter how badly Sonny or Carly mess things up with their own guilt and their own mistakes, that kid is going to have you.
Jason: I love him like he was --
Sam: Like he was your own. And he knows that. You know what heís going through, because you've been there before, I mean, in your own way, anyway. So you're not going to get angry with him or frustrated. You're going to let him go and figure out whatever it is that he needs to figure out, and because you're so patient and so calm, he is not going to push you away. Heís going to trust you like I do.
Sam: You're welcome. You know, you did say that all Michael needs is time. I think you can give that to him.
Carly: Michael. I had to come back and see you. I just feel like, you know, there were so many things that I should have said, things that you misunderstood, things that should be said over and over again, like how much I love you. I mean, to say that I missed you just doesn't quite explain it. And to tell you that a piece me was ripped away when you got hurt -- You could never be replaced. Thereís only one Michael. And when I found out that I was having this baby, the one thing that I couldn't stop thinking about was how badly I wished you were here so you could hold your little sister. And now you are. You came back, just like I knew you would I want you to sleep tight. I want you to sleep tight knowing how much your mother loves you.
Singer: We stick together
[Knock at door]
Olivia: Oh, hey, I'm sorry about the music. I can turn that down.
Sonny: I know itís late. I needed someone to talk to. Actually, I just needed to talk to you.
Olivia: Sonny, you know what? I'm always happy to --
Sonny: I went to see -- listen. Went to see Michael, told him everything. How he got shot, what happened that night --
Johnny: Claudia, I can't really have this conversation right now. Itís not really a good time.
Singer: Let me tell you about my man let me tell you about my man tells me that he loves me heís my baby mommyís almost done.
