Robin: What's the emergency?

Patrick: Take a look.

Robin: The mayor's mistress?

Patrick: Brianna Hughes. As I suspected, the injuries that she's presenting, they don't match with a little head bump in the shower that the mayor described. I think we wandered into the middle of a cover-up.

Jax: I have a feeling we're going to look back on this day and regret it.

Carly: Why?

Jax: Because with all this stuff in here, we're never going to see Michael. He's going to be gaming into the night.

Carly: Why do I have a feeling that wouldn't bother you at all?

Michael: What part of get out and leave me alone do you not understand? Get out! I'll throw you out!

Jason: Hey, hey, come on.

Michael: Get off. Get the -- leave me alone.

Jason: Calm down.

Michael: Don't touch me.

Jason: Calm down. Calm down now.

Claudia: So, what's the verdict, Doc?

Kelly: I'm --

Claudia: Am I still at risk for miscarriage?

Kelly: I'm having trouble picking up the baby's heartbeat.

Claudia: Well, that can't be good.

Kelly: I'd like to perform another ultrasound.

Claudia: You think my baby's dead?

Sonny: Everything okay? Why are you crying? Something wrong with the baby?

Maxie: Stupid, stupid thing.

Lulu: What is wrong?

Maxie: Oh, I am trying to open this file and this annoying-beyond-belief pop-up will not let me.

Lulu: Maxie, stop. Stop, stop, stop.

Maxie: What are you doing?

Lulu: It could be a virus. You don't want to touch anything.

Maxie: How am I supposed to know if my computer is infected? Oh, my God. Tell me that you see Spinelli.

Lulu: I see Spinelli.

Maxie: Good. Because for a second, I thought maybe I was going crazy. Spinelli, can you hear me?

Spinelli: I can indeed. Um, guess where I am. I'll give you a hint. The Jackal is nigh.

Maxie: Nigh?

Spinelli: Ta-da!

Maxie: [Screams]

Spinelli: [Laughs]

Maxie: You are so clever. Let me look at you, Spinelli. I haven't seen you in forever, since you opened your brilliant P.I. business.

Spinelli: Well, hi.

Maxie: Hi. I've missed you. You know, no one wants you to succeed more than me, but you have to have a better balance. Work, play, work, play. Don't you want to play with me?

Lulu: Okay, I don't mean to break up -- this -- but Spinelli, whatever you're here for, make it quick, because you're not exactly Kate's favorite person. She's going to be swooping in any minute.

Spinelli: You know, that bothers me. The fact that she would re-route her guilty conscience into personal antipathy for me? I've been nothing but pleasant, even helpful to the fashionista on more than one occasion. I can't help but be a little irked by this unearned hostility. You know, perhaps I should just expose Ms. Howard's duplicitous nature.

Lulu: No -- whoa, whoa, whoa. No, no, no, Spinelli. You can't expose Kate. She could get fired.

Spinelli: Perhaps she should be.

Lulu: Well, perhaps. But that would leave me and Maxie without a job.

Robin: We are not in the middle of anything. We responded to a medical emergency as medical professionals. Whatever happened in Mayor Floyd's hotel room is his problem. And to be honest, I hope it has enough teeth to bite him.

Patrick: Well, it's obvious you're not a fan.

Robin: Mayor Floyd is the bane of my Uncle Macís existence. He's untrustworthy, slick, he panders to the press in such an obvious way it's disgusting. He serially cheats on his perfectly nice wife. I mean, I'm not the only one in this town that would like to see Mayor Floyd take a fall.

Patrick: Which brings us neatly back to Brianna Hughes. So what do you think?

Robin: I agree with you. The severity of the concussion goes way beyond a bump on the head during shower sex.

Patrick: Okay, so I obviously know how you feel about Mayor Floyd, but do you really think he would assault a woman?

Alexis: Patrick? [Clears throat] Excuse me. Would it be possible for me to question Brianna Hughes?

Patrick: Yeah. May I ask why the D.A. is involved?

Alexis: Because we have a maid who believes she may have heard the accident at the Metro Court, or a struggle.

Patrick: Okay, well, Brianna is not ready to talk yet. Robin and I just were conferring, and we need to run more tests.

Alexis: Some concern that you have?

Patrick: The head injury is a lot more serious than the circumstances suggest.

Alexis: Excuse me. I agreed to keep this whole sordid episode under the radar for reasons that you and I are both aware of. But that does not and will not extend to covering up assault.

Mayor Floyd: Assault? What are you talking about? Brianna wasn't assaulted.

Alexis: Well, Garrett, according to the doctors, the head injury tells another story. So why don't you go through this again from the top, and this time, don't leave anything out.

Jax: Now, why would you say something mean like that? You don't think I'm excited that Michael's coming home?

Carly: Yes, yes, I know you are. I just -- I just wish we would have put that pool in. You know, if we would have put that pool in, Michael could use it. I keep thinking about everything he would want or need and that would really help him with his physical therapy.

Jax: There's a pool at the new house. And he can use the one at the hotel in the meantime, so --

Carly: I just want him to have everything he wants right here and right now. A lot to make up for. And not that I can give him back the year that he lost, but it would just be nice to -- did I tell you we were going to be skydiving out of an airplane? Except that we're not really going to be using parachutes. The airplane is just going to dangle us outside the windows and just drop us anywhere. Did I tell you that?

Jax: Sounds good.

Carly: Jax.

Jax: What?

Carly: What is going on with you? You've been, like, half here all day.

Jax: I'm trying -- reading the instruction manual.

Morgan: Is Michael coming home today?

Michael: Let me go!

Jason: Elizabeth, what are you doing?

Elizabeth: I'm calling for security and a sedative.

Jason: Don't.

Elizabeth: Jason, he needs help. He's out of control.

Michael: I'll be better once you get the hell out!

Elizabeth: You can not handle this on --

Jason: Please, I can -- I can handle this. Please.

Elizabeth: All right. All right.

Jason: Are you good?

Claudia: Tears of joy. Doctor Lee just told me that the baby and I are going to be fine even though Carly chucked us down a flight of stairs. It's a miracle. I think I'm going to go to the pcpd and press charges against her.

Sonny: No, just let it be.

Claudia: If I threw Carly and her baby down a flight of stairs, would you let it be?

Sonny: We don't know exactly what happened. You get what I'm saying?

Claudia: Mm-hmm. When in doubt, believe Carly.

Sonny: I'm not going to do this right here. How soon can you set up the amnio?

Kelly: I'd say August.

Sonny: Okay, book it.

Kelly: It's really not necessary to schedule --

Sonny: Can you -- can you just humor me? Because I -- I need to know as soon as possible if I'm the father of this baby.

Robin: The mayor looks like he just threw up in his mouth.

Patrick: Well, he's got a lot to worry about. Not only was he busted cheating on his wife, but the woman he was with could be seriously injured.

Mayor Floyd: I freely admit to having an assignation with Brianna. I assure you it was consensual. Brianna and I are very much involved.

Alexis: That's real sweet, Garrett. How's your wife feel about that?

Mayor Floyd: You know very well the problems I've had with my wife. Nothing's changed. So, yes, Brianna and I were in an embrace in the shower. It got athletic. She hit her head. It was very painful. Brianna thought acetaminophen would help, so I went down to the gift store, I got some. When I came back, she was unconscious.

Alexis: That story is not going to work, Garrett, because her head injury is too severe. You need to tell me exactly what happened, and you need to know that I'm not covering up an assault charge.

Spinelli: The glacial one's shenanigans offend my moral balance. Just because she owns the magazine doesn't mean she should be allowed to wreak havoc on it.

Maxie: But if not Kate, then who? Or is it whom?

Spinelli: I'm sorry, I don't understand.

Lulu: I don't understand, either. Whose side are you on?

Maxie: Spinelli's, of course. But, I mean, why own a magazine if you can't do whatever you want with it? I guess that's besides the point. If Spinelli thinks Kate should be outed as the hypocritical thief that she is, then I agree with him. It's outrageous. Who undermines their own creation, and why?

Lulu: You're deciding to go with moral indignation now, when our jobs are on the line?

Maxie: Sometimes you have to be willing to sacrifice for the greater good, right Spinelli?

Spinelli: Right as rain, Maximista.

Lulu: Oh, my goodness. Okay, this is not a comic book strip where the hero shows up in the nick of time to right injustice. Yeah, this is the real world. We have a real job. It makes us real money, and we really like it. It puts a roof over our head and designer fashion in your closet. Are you really ready to sacrifice that just for the pleasure of sticking it to Kate?

Maxie: How selfish are you, Lulu? This isn't about us. This is Spinelli's first real case, and it's not some mid-life crisis schlub cheating on his wife, either. It's a high-profile case that will get McCall and Jackal, P.I. a lot of press, and they'll probably be turning away clients.

Lulu: Yeah, well, I would love it for Spinelli to kick off his career in a big and splashy way. Maybe it is selfish, but at the end of the day, yeah, I think I would like to still have a job.

Maxie: I have many shoes. And if I don't have a job, where am I going to wear them?

Lulu: Oh, that's easy. Actually, at the unemployment office. You can stand in them for a really long time in one unending line after another. I doubt that they'll actually have some fashion industry gigs up for grabs. But you could sell newspapers with Spinelli's headline blaring -- oh, wait, that's not going to work either, because the newspapers aren't hiring. They're too busy hanging on by a thread.

Maxie: All right, I get your point.

Kate: Oh, wow. I do love walking in to find my assistants hard at work. [Clears throat] All right, enlighten me. Tell me what business you have with Mr. Jackal that's so important it supersedes my own.

Morgan: I don't know if I like this idea.

Carly: Huh? Why? What's wrong with this idea?

Morgan: If Michael has his own gaming system in his room, then I'll never see him.

Carly: Michael's dying to spend time with you. You guys will just have to hang out in here.

Jax: Yes, but you also have to remember that Michael is going to need some time alone. He has a lot of adjusting to do. A lot has changed in a year. Michael has, too. So things might get a little rough around here, but you're just going to have to be patient, okay?

Morgan: I'll do whatever Michael needs.

Jax: Oh, you are a good little brother.

Michael: Fight back. I'm not afraid.

Jason: Michael, just take it -- take it easy.

Michael: Come on, hit me.

Jason: I'm not going to hit you. Okay. I would never, ever hit you.

Jason: Okay, look at me. It's going to be okay. Everything's going to be okay.

Michael: Why am I acting like this?

Jason: It's okay.

Sonny: What the hell happened to my house?

Claudia: I guess the decorators came. I was going to cancel them, but, you know, getting tossed down the stairs took it right out of my mind.

Sonny: But what --

Claudia: What, you don't like it?

Sonny: Huh?

Claudia: You don't like it? I think it looks great. But what do I know? Hey, you know what? Change it back. I don't think it really matters anyway.

Sonny: You don't think it matters?

Claudia: No.

Sonny: Are you admitting that the baby is Ric's?     

Patrick: Okay, I just ordered another round of tests, so we're in a holding pattern.

Robin: Good. We can go to the park.

Patrick: After I talk to the mayor, yeah.

Robin: Can I watch?

Patrick: Do I have a choice?

Mayor Floyd: I did not hurt Brianna. I never would. And I strongly advise you to take my word and put this matter to rest. Otherwise, this could end up as uncomfortable for you as it is for me.

Patrick: Mayor, I need to ask you a few questions about Brianna Hughes. Exactly how --

Mayor Floyd: I'm not answering any more of your questions, Dr. Drake. I've already told you everything I know. And if Brianna is in any kind of physical jeopardy, it's because you botched her treatment. And if that's so, well, I promise you'll be hearing from our lawyer.

Robin: Lovely.

Patrick: Hmm.

Alexis: Will you keep me apprised of Brianna's condition? I want to question her as soon as possible.

Patrick: Yeah. Well, I guess I'm all yours.

Matt: Patrick.

Patrick: Yeah.

Matt: I need you. Brianna Hughes, she's seizing.

Maxie: We weren't socializing or anything.

Lulu: Absolutely not.

Kate: Then why is Mr. Jackal here? Last time I checked, he wasn't an employee, which means he has no official reason for being here during business hours.

Maxie: My computer had a virus, and Spinelli was nice enough to come over here and obliterate it.

Kate: Is the problem solved, Mr. Jackal?

Spinelli: I'd like to double-check. See, it's not your run-of-the-mill bug. It's the grand clemenza virus. It's particularly virulent and persistent when unauthorized access of confidential files opens a portal of opportunity --

Kate: [Clears throat] Okay, I'm sure that's all very relevant. So just de-virus it and depart. Maxie, since you insist on pushing the boundaries and continuing to ignore my express wishes, I'm going to demote you to second assistant today.

Maxie: I'm sorry, what? What did I do that was wrong? I just had Spinelli come over here and fix my computer.

Kate: Maxie, you should have called tech services. That's what we pay them for. Choices have consequences, and yours is to stay here while Lulu goes with me to Donatella's yacht for drinks.

Maxie: Kate, I don't think that's very fair.

Lulu: I don't do boats well. I get sick.

Kate: Well, a yacht isn't a boat. It's a floating mansion. So be ready in 30 minutes.

Maxie: Sometimes I hate her.

Lulu: You know that I don't want this.

Spinelli: Nor do I. I would never intentionally cause trouble to rain down on your lovely head.

Maxie: No, it's okay. Kate's just being an arbitrary diva again. We just need to shock that smug look off of her face and give her a dose of reality.

Michael: I'm such a loser, crying like a little bitch.

Jason: No, you're not. You're allowed, and don't let anyone tell you that you can't.

Michael: Am I allowed to hit you? I mean, where'd that even come from?

Jason: Michael, you have a brain injury. The circuits that were broken have not figured out a way to reconnect yet, so things that you never had to think twice about before -- you know, how to control your emotions or what you might think is appropriate behavior, that stuff you learn growing up, you have to relearn it. And that's going to take some time.

Michael: I hate this, Jason. I mean, sometimes I wish I could just go back to sleep.

Jason: Look, I know -- I know this is frustrating for you.

Michael: You understand, but will anyone else? I mean, I'm a complete train wreck. I scream at nurses, throw things, lash out at people who are just trying to help me. What if I can't relearn that stuff that you said? What if -- you know, what if I go into a sudden rage and do something terrible?

Jason: You won't. Because who you are, your foundation hasn't changed just because you were shot. Yeah, you're in for a tough time ahead of you. There's no doubt about that. But I know that you can make a bad situation better, because I know that's who you are.

Michael: I'll probably need your help.

Jason: Any time.

Carly: You don't have to do this, you know.

Jax: I see. After getting Michael a flat-screen TV, a new gaming system and a pinball machine for his room, getting him a refrigerator would be over the top?

Carly: It's very thoughtful and generous. And you know what else would be thoughtful and generous?

Jax: You want me to get you some of that tofu ice cream you like so much.

Carly: Well, I don't actually like tofu ice cream, and I wouldn't look at it twice.

Jax: Right.

Carly: Except that I'm pregnant, and I'm on a restricted diet.

Jax: Well, since you don't have a choice, do you want me to get you some or not?

Carly: Yes, I'd love some tofu ice cream.

Jax: Great.

Carly: You know what I'd like even more?

Jax: What's that?

Carly: To know why you've been so distracted today. It's not because of Michael. Is it me? Am I doing something that's driving you crazy?

Jax: No, not in the slightest.

Carly: So, you're not going to tell me?

Jax: It's just seeing Morgan, you know? So happy to have his big brother back. It just reminds me of me and Jerry when we were kids. How I idolized him. I wanted to be just like him. And I thought he could turn his life around, but -- you know, I thought there were lines he wouldn't cross, but I was wrong about that.

Carly: I'm sorry. I know that Jerry has hurt you, and I know he's disappointed you.

Jax: Yeah, well --

Carly: I know in a lot of ways he was a hero to you, just like Michael's a hero to Morgan. But you're not responsible for anything Jerry did. You know, we have to focus on the good. We do. We're together. We have Michael, Morgan, and this little baby on the way. And if that doesn't do it for you, then just think about how grateful I'm going to be when you come back with my tofu ice cream.

Jax: Ooh. Exactly how grateful are you going to be, Mrs. Jacks?

Carly: I can't wait to show you, Mr. Jacks.

Sonny: If you are lying to my face, if this baby is Ric's, it would be best for you to come clean now, because you are not going to ride this bluff until August. And don't try to switch the DNA test --

Claudia: You'd love it, wouldn't you? You would love it if this was Ric's baby. Why? Because then you'd be free of all your obligations. You can just shake it off and go back to your life. No more inconvenient woman and inconvenient baby. To hell with you. You're not the most important person in the room anymore. My baby is, at least to me. I don't expect you to give a damn. 

Patrick: I've got to perform surgery on Brianna Hughes. I'm not going to make it to the park.

Robin: That's okay. We'll carry on without you. So I take it Matt is assisting.

Patrick: Well, we're debating that. Why?

Robin: He is giving your team orders.

Matt: Elizabeth, prep O.R. 5. Epiphany --

Elizabeth: Who is doing the surgery?

Patrick and Matt: I am.

Patrick: Excuse me. Can I speak to you for a second?

Matt: Excuse me.

Patrick: I thought we discussed this. I'm the one with the experience. I'm the one that's going to do this procedure. It's a difficult procedure, Matt.

Matt: Yeah, yeah, you keep reminding me of that. My neurosurgeon license is current. I am more than capable. And you don't have to keep reminding everyone around here that you're the better brother.

Patrick: That's not what this is about. I'm concerned about a patient who needs a shunt placed between her ventricles before the CSF pressure kills her. I've done this procedure successfully. You haven't.

Matt: I have performed many procedures similar in scope. Look, I'm not a novice, okay? I'll tell you what. Just once -- just once, keep the faith and let me do the job I've been trained for.

Morgan: Jax is so cool. He really went out to get Michael his own fridge?

Carly: Yeah, I hope he gets a small one. You know how Jax can overdo everything. And I don't want you to think we're playing favorites with Michael. He needs the fridge so he doesn't struggle going downstairs to get water. Or in his case, soda.

Morgan: I get it. We have to do everything we can to make things easier for Michael. I'm just glad he's coming home.

Carly: You miss your brother, don't you?

Morgan: A lot.

Carly: Get it, get it, get it, get it.

[Explosion sound effect]

Morgan: Yes!

Carly: You know, come here. I want to tell you something. I counted on you a whole bunch the whole time Michael was lost, and I want you to know that you came through. You did. You were wonderful. And you were brave in a very scary time. And I just want to thank you for that, Morgan.

Morgan: It's okay.

Carly: And you know, Jax is right when he says we're going to need some adjustment time. We're going to have to learn to live together all over again. But that's okay. Michael is back, and we're all going to be together, and we're going to be a family.

Morgan: What if Michael is so different that he doesn't like me anymore?

Carly: What? Hey, you've been around Michael. Does it seem like he doesn't like you?

Morgan: No.

Carly: There you go. Your big brother loves you, you know? And you guys are going to be even closer after this.

Morgan: I can't wait until Michael is all better. He's going to teach me how to drive.

Carly: That's going to be some trick, since he doesn't even know how to drive himself.

Morgan: He's old enough to learn. Michael already said he's getting a car. That way he can drive back and forth whenever he wants to.

Carly: Well, I guess I'm going to have to cross that bridge when I get to it.

Jason: Michael is in trouble.

Sonny: What? What happened?

Jason: I found him in his room at the hospital. He was throwing things. He was yelling at Elizabeth. And he punched me.

Sonny: He hit you?

Jason: Yeah, it's fine. I calmed him down. I did whatever I could to reassure him. But he's got some major self-control issues.

Sonny: Do you think it's okay for him to live with Carly? Because I don't want him going off on her and Morgan.

Jason: I think that he hit me because I'm a safe place for him to take his aggression out. But he didn't touch Elizabeth. He was violently angry enough to convince me there was reason to worry.

Johnny: Hey. Your message sounded frantic. What's going on?

Claudia: I think I have a dead baby inside me. You're probably happy about that.

Johnny: Why would you say something like that to me?

Claudia: I don't know. Did you forget? I sure as hell didn't forget. You thought I sprouted a tail and horns for getting pregnant in the first place. Well, don't worry, John. You got your wish. The mob won't have another little child to damage, and Ric won't have a baby to worry about and cause trouble for whether it's his or not his.

Johnny: Claudia, back up. Are you sure the baby is dead?

Claudia: Dr. Lee couldn't find a heartbeat. Sonny came in. I started doing that whole lying-covering thing that I do so well. I told him everything was fine and I left with him, as if he cared. All he cared about was how soon I could have an amniocentesis to establish the paternity of the child. It will be ironic when he realizes that that won't be necessary.

Alexis: For someone who is about to be a daddy, you don't seem very happy.

Jax: Hey. Yeah, well, it's not easy keeping secrets from my wife while the person who should be in jail gets to happily build a new life.

Alexis: You had a valid reason for letting Jerry go.

Jax: Yeah, I thought so at the time.

Alexis: You were trying to protect your wife and your baby-to-be, and that can be considered noble.

Jax: I just want the children living under my roof to have a realistic understanding of who they can trust and who they can't.

Alexis: Why does it sound to me like you're referring to someone other than Jerry

Jax: What makes you say that?

Alexis: Because Jerry is gone, and he's not influencing anyone under your roof. And maybe it's just a notion -- was someone else involved in Michael's shooting?

Lulu: Okay, I get that Kate at unfair, but that's a tradeoff for having this job. You love this job. You've said before that this is the only thing that you've done right.

Maxie: That was before Spinelli, and he's taught me to have faith in myself and trust my unique thing that I bring to the table. I mean, if I was able to impress Kate enough to get this job, then I'll probably impress her replacement enough to keep. And you, too. We're kind of like a package deal.

Lulu: Right. But that's the part that you're not getting. If he exposes Kate and she gets replaced, any good editor-in-chief will come in with their new assistants, okay? If you want to stay in fashion, you'll probably have to move to Manhattan or London or Paris.

Spinelli: Is that true?

Maxie: Pretty much.

Lulu: Wow, this is monumental. Maxie Jones is willing to give up something important to support someone else. I am so happy for you, Spinelli. You have accomplished the impossible. But if you care about Maxie, which I know you do, you will drop this, because this is not good for anybody here.

Kate: Oh, Mr. Jackal, I see you're still here. Lulu, let's go. Maxie, while I'm gone, I'd like you to research a new office chair. I'd like to see 30 examples, different ones, waiting on my desk when we return. Come on, Lulu.

Spinelli: Maybe Lulu is right. Better the devil you know than the one you don't.

Maxie: Right. Well, I want the devil I know gone. So keep digging, and we're going to get whatever information we can on Kate so we can blow her out of the water.

Robin: Do we have a next of kin yet on Brianna Hughes?

Epiphany: Just her employer, the mayor's office.

Elizabeth: Are you scrubbing in?

Robin: No, I'm not needed in O.R. But I'm very much needed in the park with my daughter.

Elizabeth: Good for you.

Patrick: Dr. Hunter will be performing the Hughes surgery.

Elizabeth: You're going to be assisting, though, right?

Patrick: Yes.

Matt: No, it is not necessary.

Patrick: With all due respect, I'm the one with the experience. You have none. It would be smart to at least have me in the room to observe.

Matt: No, I've got it handled. The only thing I need from my big brother seems to be the one thing he is incapable of giving me -- a vote of confidence.

Patrick: Really? Okay, well, here is how little you know. You'll be fine. Call my cell if you need me. I'm going to the park with my wife.

Alexis: Listen, you and I are on really thin ice for not turning Jerry in when we had the chance.

Jax: Yeah.

Alexis: If there is someone else involved in Michael's shooting, if Jerry had a partner, I want to know.

Jax: No, there's no one else. I mean, besides Ian Devlin, Jerry acted alone.

Alexis: Keeping secrets can be painful. I know that. My family was built on them. But sometimes, a secret is necessary. Sometimes it's noble. And you're doing this out of love for your family. So that's understandable. But if you tell Carly now to ease your own conscience, then you're doing it at her expense. And I don't think you really want to do that, do you?

Jax: Carly and the baby mean everything to me. I'll do whatever it takes to keep them safe.

Sonny: You're the only one who knows what he's going through. Give it to me from his point of view.

Jason: Well, it's a similar situation, but I can only speak from what I went through.  And you know how angry I was all the time. But for me, it was a fight to be myself, whoever that was. I needed to take some type of control of my life and not be who everybody else wanted me to be. But I lashed out at everybody.

Sonny: Yeah.

Jason: And now, looking back, you know, I made some bad decisions in those moments of anger.

Sonny: Like coming to work for me?

Jason: No, man --

Sonny: No --

Jason: I don't regret that. I don't regret that. But I don't want Michael making a choice like that just to prove to everybody how independent he is.

Sonny: He's not ever going to be in the business. Trust me.

Jason: Well, he's going to find some business, and that's what I'm afraid of. Because he gets mad, he's scared, and he doesn't know why. He blows up. He blames himself. He can't point at why he just did that. And he blames himself again. And he gets angry. It's a dangerous cycle, Sonny.

[Phone rings]

Sonny: Hello.

Michael: Hi, Dad.

Sonny: How you doing, buddy? How you feeling?

Michael: Like an idiot. I did something really stupid today. I lost my temper, starting yelling, throwing things. I even hit Jason.

Sonny: Yeah, I heard.

Michael: I'm really scared, Dad. What if it happens at Mom's? Please, can I just come live with you?

Johnny: Hey, so you can just have another test, right?

Claudia: All that scrambling around trying to get pregnant, convincing myself, twisting logic to make myself think that Sonny and I having a baby together was going to bond us on some primal level. You know, I thought, he doesn't like me much, but he's going to love this baby, right? The joke is on me. He doesn't want the baby. He wants it to be Ric's, so he can get rid of us both, me and the baby. And Ric is salivating at the idea of having a baby with Sonny's wife. But the joke is on him, actually. He's going to be disappointed.

Johnny: What about you?

Claudia: What about me? Why should I care? It's only my baby, my body that was perfectly fine until Carly threw me down the stairs. Johnny, my baby is dead. Carly is going to pay and pay and pay -- in ways that she can't begin to imagine.

Johnny: Claudia, don't go there yet. This baby may still be alive. You have to hold on to that thought.

Claudia: I don't want to hope, John. I don't want to feel anything.

Johnny: It will be okay.     

Robin: Isn't this a gorgeous afternoon?

Patrick: Yeah, it's perfect.

Robin: Are you worried about the Hughes surgery?

Patrick: Not at all. Matt is a qualified surgeon. I wouldn't have let him talk me out of doing the procedure myself if I thought that the patient would be compromised.

Robin: Well, anyway, I'm glad he did. That way you got to come to the park with us. It's good for us to have family time to just keep our balance.

Patrick: Absolutely. Hey, what about you? Are you going to keep balance? Are you going to keep balance?

Epiphany: I called the patient's emergency contact, a coworker at the mayor's office. Apparently, she and the mayor have had a special relationship.

Elizabeth: How anyone could sleep with that oily creep is beyond me.

Matt: No accounting for taste.

Epiphany: Well, now, maybe Mayor Floyd has hidden assets.

Elizabeth: Epiphany.

Epiphany: Well, now, you misunderstood me, Ms. Webber. What I meant was, not everybody is all bad.

Elizabeth: Yeah, that's right. You try and clean that up.

Epiphany: [Laughs]

Matt: How is our patient's readings?

Elizabeth: Everything is normal.

Epiphany: That's excellent work, Dr. Hunter. You're brother will be proud.

Matt: Well -- neuroclamp -- we're lucky our patient seized when she did. It alerted us to the hydrocephalus before it was too late. And there is the block on the foramina. See that swell?

Epiphany: Mm-hmm.

Matt: Yeah, okay, so I'll need some suction. Then prep the shunt for placement.

[Machine beeps]

Elizabeth: Her vitals are dropping. We're losing her.

Sonny: So, Michael wants to live with me. And you know what? I'd love him to live here, but I don't know if that's the right thing.

Jason: Well, you know what I think.

Sonny: I know what you think. You think you don't want him living here because of Claudia, which is understandable. But things just got a little more complicated because -- I don't know why I gave her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe it was the baby. Maybe it was the huge mistake that I made. But let's not -- who is fooling who here? This baby may not be mine. It could be Ric's. And if it is, I have no idea what to do with her.

Claudia: Was my baby in pain?

Kelly: What do you mean?

Claudia: When I fell, if that's how my baby died, was it in pain?

Kelly: We don't know that your baby died. Let's just take it one step at a time, all right?

Claudia: It just looks like clouds to me. What is going on?

Kelly: I'm not seeing a heartbeat.

Claudia: God.
