[Knock at door]

Maxie: Thank God you're here and not out killing someone. Is Spinelli home?

Jason: He's upstairs practicing.

Maxie: That's what I was afraid of.

Jason: He practiced all night long.

Maxie: Yeah, that's probably why you have dark circles under your eyes. You know, you really should consider some sort of maintenance regimen. It doesn't have to be difficult. Cold water, generic moisturizer. But that's not why I'm here.

Jason: Why are you here?

Maxie: I need you to do some sort of, like, mob thing on Coleman. Lean on him. Threaten to break his kneecaps. He needs to cancel karaoke night at Jakeís.

Jason: Karaoke night?

Maxie: Yes. This is going to be a disaster. You can't let Spinelli get up there and sing just to prove he loves me. What if he's terrible? He's going to feel unmanly and horrible, and then he's going to push me away. And I'll be heartbroken and he will be, too. And you can't let that happen.

Spinelli: La la la la la la my Maxie is divine her beauty is sublime her eyes are sparkling blue to her I will be true

Maxie: Spinelli, you sound good. What happened?

Kristina: How did your volcano turn out?

Molly: Good. I had more baking soda lava than anyone else at science camp.

Alexis: Good for you.

Kristina: Nice.

Alexis: I can't wait to see the pictures. How was your horseback riding lesson?

Kristina: Fine.

Alexis: I can't wait to see you go over a double-oxer.

Kristina: It won't be that dramatic, unless Clipsy flashes back to his grand prix jumping days.

Alexis: I hope they don't have you on too much horse.

Kristina: He's a lot of fun.

Alexis: I'm sorry I missed your lesson.

Kristina: You shouldn't have to deal with the other parents staring and whispering with all that's going on.

Alexis: I really appreciate how both of you are dealing with this. And I know that it's not easy for either one of you, but I hope that the media, and even all the blogs, are moving on to something a lot more interesting, okay? Let's hope so anyway.

Diane: My friend, you have a very real disaster on your hands.

Nikolas: Yes, I want all the shades removed, including the sitting room. Thank you.

[Elizabeth clears throat]

Nikolas: Hey, if you come over here and help me, I'll give you a nice kiss.

Elizabeth: Didn't that already get us in trouble?

Rebecca: What is this? You can't just walk in without knocking. What if Nikolas had been here?

Ethan: Well, then you would have had to think fast. What is all this? You planning on leaving town without me?

Rebecca: No, I'm moving in with Nikolas.

Ethan: I don't think so.

Maxie: You sound so much better. It's amazing. Almost miraculous, don't you think? Well, I've never in my life been so relieved. And Coleman will be, too, or he would if he knew what was about to happen to him.

Spinelli: What? Surely, you did not encourage Stone Cold to inflict bodily harm on the saloon keeper.

Maxie: That's beside the point now that you sound so much better. How did that happen, anyway?

Spinelli: Oh, well, I've been vocalizing non-stop, as Stone Cold can attest to. And while practice does increase the probability of a perfect performance, the secret of my vocal improvement is a little more complex.

Maxie: Complex?

Spinelli: Well, when I sing into this particular microphone, something happens.

Maxie: Okay, what is it? Is it about me?

Spinelli: When singing into this particular mic, I imagine the luminous beauty and passionate spirit of Maximista and all the love in my heart, courtly and otherwise, transcends into song.

Maxie: Spinelli, that is so beautiful. Jason, why didn't you tell me that I inspired Spinelli to become such a great singer?

Robin: Come on, it'll be fun.

Patrick: It's a terrible idea.

Robin: Coleman needs your support.

Patrick: I already told Coleman that I'm not singing karaoke.

Robin: And Judy already said she would stay the night with Emma.

Patrick: Great. Let's go somewhere else, then.

Robin: Well, everyone's going to be at Jakeís.

Patrick: I don't care.

Robin: Hey, Matt, would you like to go to Jakeís with us tonight?

Matt: Oh, I'm pretty sure I'm banned from that place after what happened last time.

Robin: Oh, come on. You had just found out that you were being sued for malpractice. Anybody would be upset.

Patrick: Yeah, but not a lot of people would have picked a fight with Johnny Zacchara.

Matt: Hey.

Robin: As soon as Patrick and I prove who murdered Brianna, that whole malpractice suit will go away.

Matt: I don't need you guys to get me out of this.

Patrick: Gracious as ever.

Robin: Okay, time out. You know what I think would do us all some good? A night out at Jakeís.

[For all our GH transcripts, visit]

Matt: Yeah, I've got surgery tonight, actually. I have to repair a cerebral aneurism. Apparently, some people still think I'm a competent surgeon. Epiphany, I need a review of those labs before I meet with the surgical team, okay?

Epiphany: I'm sorry, Dr. Hunter, but you've been taken off the case.

Diane: Kristina, Molly, you poor kids. This must be an unmitigated nightmare for the two of you. By the way, I hear that's very good.

Molly: It is.

Alexis: By the way, the kids are handling this very well. Thank you.

Diane: That means that no one in this room has turned on the television or logged on to the internet lately. Brace yourselves.

Alexis: You're kidding. Really?

Diane: Yeah.

Alexis: Girls, up, up. Go do something, anything. Hurry.

Molly: Is Mom in trouble?

Kristina: Don't worry.

Alexis: Are you kidding me? Really? Are you going to talk like that in front of my kids?

Diane: You should have sent those kids to summer camp in the Bahamas when this whole thing first broke. Now you cannot protect them from it.

Alexis: What happened?

Diane: In a word? E-mails.

Alexis: What e-mails?

Diane: The ones you supposedly sent to the mayor. Let's see, subject lines. Okay, "the night was beyond physical. It was electric."

Alexis: What?

Diane: "So that we can get as wild as you want. Oh, the always effective, "don't use your stupid wife as an excuse." In short, my friend, there appears to be ample evidence circulating online that you are an obsessed stalker who set up the mayor for spite.

Elizabeth: It's always a good idea to know who you're talking to before you start promising kisses.

Nikolas: Yeah, excellent advice.

Elizabeth: After all, I could have been Alfred.

Nikolas: Oh, God. No, he's busy upstairs supervising the staff. Rebecca moves in today.

Elizabeth: Nikolas, you're one of my closest friends, even when I think you're making a big mistake, but I'm going to keep promise --my no more lectures, no more sage advice. I am just here to see how you're doing.

Nikolas: All right, thank you. Anyway, Rebecca hates all this stuff, so I'm trying to get some of it out of here before she gets here.

Elizabeth: Great. Where do you want to start?

Nikolas: This thing right here.

Elizabeth: Okay.

Nikolas: Listen, I know that I'm probably moving too fast, okay, and everyone is worried about me. But I want to be with Rebecca and she wants to be here, so I'm just going to go with that.

Elizabeth: Sometimes you have to take happiness where you can find it, despite the imperfection and the risks involved. So if that's what you're doing with her, then I support you.

Nikolas: Thanks.

Elizabeth: And I've always hated this junk.

Nikolas: Of course.

Ethan: The deal was to get your hands on as much money as possible, Quartermaine or Cassadine. You'd give me my cut. We'd move on to the next mark.

Rebecca: Okay, yeah, we left things pretty open-ended as I recall.

Ethan: We never agreed that you'd move in with Nikolas and leave me with nothing.

Rebecca: You're not the only one having problems with this, all right? I mean, I'm lonely, too. I'm afraid I'm going to get so wrapped up in this guy's fantasy that I just end up nowhere.

Ethan: Then slow things down a bit. Okay, don't get caught up in his fairy tale.

Rebecca: Nikolas loves all that kind of stuff, Ethan. I have to play along.

Ethan: That's quite an imposition, isn't it? I can see how you're suffering.

Rebecca: Port Charles has turned out to be way more complicated than either one of us imagined. It's obvious that you're having a really difficult time right now, and if I could help you through it, I would. But I can't, okay? I can't let this opportunity go by. The closer I am to Nikolas, the closer I am to real money.

Ethan: Well, you should have at least told me you were moving in, okay? If you're living on that island, it'll be harder for us to meet.

Rebecca: We're meeting way too often anyway, Ethan. We need to go back to the original rules. And they were your rules, remember? No personal contact, just cell phone and text messages only.

Ethan: Yeah, that would make it really easy to forget about me, then, wouldn't it? You know, to pick up right where your sister left off and go live happily ever after with Prince Charming.

Diane: An anonymous source in the mayor's office leaked those e-mails to the press sometime last night.

Alexis: I never wrote these e-mails.

Diane: They date back to the first night you slept with him.

Alexis: "Only" night that I slept with him, one time. It was a bad night. I told you. He's usually very officious, Floyd? He has another side to him.

Diane: Not to mention those bedroom eyes. Although, there's no mention of those in the e-mails.

Alexis: The only e-mails that I ever wrote to Floyd were grants or line-item budgets. That's it. And you better believe me.

Diane: I do believe you. These e-mails sound desperate and coy and made up somehow, but they were sent from your computer.

Alexis: That's impossible.

Diane: Don't bother. I can show them to you on any number of political websites, not to mention today's paper.

Alexis: Don't tell me. I don't want to see it. Oh, my God. There they are. There's, like, dozens of them. "Thinking of you." "All my love forever." "Call me." I don't talk like that. Who talks like that?

Diane: How long do your sent e-mails live?

Alexis: Forever, obviously.

Diane: "I can't get over you." "I just need to feel your touch one more time." "I need to feel your kiss everywhere."

Alexis: [Wretches] God.

Diane: Oh, my God. Geez, these sound like bad greeting cards sent from a lunatic. Who else has access to this computer?

Alexis: Nobody, nobody. I keep this thing very close to me. Kristina is the only one that knows it, and she would never do anything like that.

Diane: Well, then who would? Who else has a clear-cut motive? Maybe someone is trying to steal your job.

Alexis: Or maybe somebody is trying to frame me for Brianna Hughes' murder.

Matt: I am completely ready for this surgery. It's going to take another doctor at least three days to get up to speed.

Epiphany: I'm sorry, Doctor, but the patients at General Hospital have the right to choose their own physicians. With all the bad publicity from the wrongful death suit, people are nervous.

Matt: Have any of your patients rescheduled surgery since this whole suit has been filed?

Patrick: No, but I'll be happy to go talk to --

Matt: No, I don't need you managing my patients. And I don't need you looking over my shoulder when I'm working.

Patrick: It's not what I'm doing, Matt.

Matt: Everyone, including the disciplinary board at this hospital, believes that if you were in that surgery, Brianna Hughes would still be alive.

Patrick: Brianna died from a massive blunt force that caused a head bleed. I don't think anyone could have saved her.

Matt: Anyone except for you, the great Drake.

Patrick: If we don't figure this out and fast, Matt could really lose his career.

Robin: Incoming, prime suspect.

Andrea: There you are. I just wanted to thank you for your kindness and support at the Metro Court last night. Alexis Davis was completely out of control.

Robin: I saw those e-mails in the paper this morning. It must be awful having another woman pursue your husband.

Andrea: I appreciate your sympathy, but I'm here to express my gratitude. I'm going to speak to Brianna Hughes' family, get this situation worked out. Because if that woman was murdered, they need to drop the wrongful death suit against you and your brother right away.

Nikolas: Uh-huh. Now I know why you came all the way out here. It's the perfect excuse for you to clear out all the things that you don't like.

Elizabeth: Would you consider donating some of this stuff to Cameronís school for a silent auction?

Nikolas: Yeah, yeah, that sounds great. I'd be glad to.

Elizabeth: Great. But first, let's rule out any priceless Russian relics because I'd really hate for some one to spend 50 bucks on something that belongs in a museum.

Nikolas: I'll make sure that doesn't happen. Don't worry.

Elizabeth: Why don't you and Rebecca come with us to the auction? Lucky and I got roped in to setting it up, and we could use your help.

Nikolas: Uh, yeah, okay. I'll discuss it with her, but thank you for including her.

Elizabeth: Well, we're not about to let you isolate yourself way out here, no matter what happens with Rebecca.

Nikolas: Thank you. What's going on with you and Lucky right now?

Elizabeth: Well, if it involves the kids or anything family-oriented, then we're great, you know? But other than that, it's so easy to be around him that sometimes we forget all the pain we've caused each other when things are going bad. So we've not come to any grand resolutions, but we have decided that we will not drag the boys through another breakup. So we're just kind of taking it easy.

Nikolas: Which essentially is the exact opposite of what Rebecca and I are doing right now, right?

Elizabeth: It is funny how Rebecca has moved things along, though, because nothing has been the same since that night you saw her with Lucky and Lucky saw you kissing me.

Rebecca: I barely knew anything about Nikolas until you helped me with the research, Ethan. I thought I was going to be dealing mostly with the Quartermaines.

Ethan: And why aren't you? I mean, they're falling all over themselves to get you into the family. And they're seriously rich.

Rebecca: Yeah, Tracy controls every dime.

Ethan: I don't know about that. I bet if you played beloved granddaughter to the old man, you could get pretty much anything you like.

Rebecca: Tracy would never let that happen, Ethan. She hated me on sight -- big surprise. And she's starting to suspect that something is going on between us. I just want to stay as far away from her as possible. Anyway, I don't know. Nikolas is the real money. And I'll have access to more than we ever imagined.

Ethan: And then what?

Rebecca: And then you get your cut and we leave town and we see what happens next.

Ethan: That's my girl.

Spinelli: Even Stone Cold could not have predicted the swift and powerful effect that Maximista would have on my vocal prowess.

Maxie: But you just told me that he practiced all night. Can't you hear a difference?

Spinelli: Stone Cold has far more important things to focus on.

Maxie: Yeah, but how could you just stand around and almost let a disaster happen? You know that I was frantic about tonight. But I have nothing to worry about because when Spinelli thinks of me, he can sing. You told me that you wanted to do this and you said your love for me would prevail. I am sorry that I doubted you even for one second. I'm honored to be your fair Maximista. And I can't wait to hear you sing your heart out at Jakeís tonight. Bye.

Spinelli: "What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive." I brought this on myself, this terrible choice. What do I do? Do I sing into this magic mic, as it were, with the pitch correction software and allow Maximista to believe that it was her love that transformed my voice, or do I -- should I be honest and true and sing to the best of my natural ability and, therefore, sound like I'm being fed into a wood chipper?

Spinelli: I'm loathe to concern Stone Cold with my affairs of the heart. My troubles pale in comparison to the troubles of the son of Mr. Sir and lurking Zacchara.

Jason: I don't really see the problem, Spinelli. Maxie loves you. You love her. I thought that's what you wanted.

Spinelli: No, I vowed to win fair Maximista through the courtly traditions of honesty and true love. So, yeah, if I sing through this mic, she'll be honored, but she'll be deceived. And if I don't, she'll see me as a fraud, unworthy of her love.

Jason: But that's what I don't understand. Maxie already loves you. Why do you have to sing?

Maxie: Coleman, is everything set up? You paid for the rent on the karaoke machine and people have signed up?

Coleman: I thought you wanted me to cancel, girl.

Maxie: No. As it turned out, Spinelli can actually sing. I heard him a little bit ago. He just needs to calm down and think of me. Isn't that romantic?

Coleman: Well, you're an inspiration, no doubt about it.

Maxie: Thank you.

Matt: Will you pour me a shooter and one for her, too.

Maxie: Excuse me?

Coleman: After the way you acted the last time you were in here, man, I'm not serving you anything.

Matt: What? Are you serious? Really?

Maxie: Look, whatever it is that you're going through, you're not going to ruin tonight for me or Spinelli.

Matt: Spinelli. What do you see in that guy? Really, he's such a geek.

Maxie: I'm not going to fight with you, Matt. I've been where you are.

Matt: Really? Charged with medical malpractice and wrongful death? Faced with the possibility that your career might completely be over?

Maxie: Oh, please. Kate Howard threatens to end my career on a daily basis.

Matt: Can I get a shot of tequila? Just --

Maxie: Coleman, do you think you could get us a couple of lemonades, please?

Coleman: Now, see how easy that was, man? And you better treat her with respect, or I'm going to toss you out of here myself. You got it?

Maxie: I'm not saying that fashion is brain surgery, but I care about my career just as much as you care about yours. And I know what it's like to be in a really unfair situation. And instead of trying to doing something to fix it, you burn the rest of your life down, which in a weird, self-destructive way, kind of feels good, but it's always a mistake.

Nikolas: That night, that kiss kind of caught me off guard a little bit, you know?

Elizabeth: Yeah, same here. It's so weird how one action, one unexpected event, can just change everything in an instant.

Nikolas: Put things back into perspective, though, didn't it?

Elizabeth: Yeah, and we both ran straight to other people.

Nikolas: True. But that night changed things for the better, too.

Elizabeth: And it's a perfect example why we should never get drunk together at Jakeís.

Lulu: Hey, you guys. Oh, my gosh, I can't believe you're both here. Are you guys up for something new and fun at Jakeís?

Rebecca: Nikolas is waiting for me, Ethan.

Ethan: So that's how it is.

Rebecca: What? I don't want him to walk in and find us having sex.

Ethan: I'm going to need an advance on my cut.

Rebecca: I can't ask Nikolas for any money yet.

Ethan: Tracy has cut back my hours at the Haunted Star to almost nothing. She's trying to starve me out, and maybe that's what you want, too.

Rebecca: No. Come on, you know it isnít.

Ethan: You've crossed over, Becca. You've chosen the prince over the bloke you met at the airport during a snow storm. And I can't blame you for that, but I won't be double-crossed.

Lulu: If you've never tried karaoke, tonight is the night.

Elizabeth: I think it sounds like fun.

Nikolas: What's the point of listening to people sing along to canned music?

Lulu: It helps to have a couple of drinks.

Elizabeth: Yeah, well, no alcohol for me -- at least, not at Jakeís.

Nikolas: Scared?

Lulu: Um, whatever that's about, I don't know, but I really hope you guys both decide to come, because I want to see this family on neutral ground and see if we can actually spend an evening together without fighting.

Nikolas: So you invited Ethan?

Lulu: Yes, I left him a message. And I already told Lucky that you were coming, so don't make a liar out of me.

Elizabeth: I've been so worried about Lucky, I'll do anything to help, even listen to karaoke.

Lulu: Okay, so what about you? Come on, it's going to be fun.

Rebecca: I'm sorry it took me so long to get here.

Nikolas: Rebecca and I will not be going to Jakeís this evening because it's our first night of living together.

Alexis: Oh, boy, I don't want to have to upset you girls again, but I may have spoken a little too soon about the mayor situation. There are some rumors flying around, and they're saying that e-mails have been leaked and that Mommy sent them, but I didnít.

Kristina: What do they say?

Alexis: They were saying that I was obsessed with the mayor and that apparently I sent them all along.

Kristina: You wouldn't write something like that.

Alexis: Of course I wouldn't do that, honey. I just am upset that this isn't over for both of you. But the most important thing is -- here you go, babe -- is that you know that I didn't write them, that people who are saying that I did are lying. Somebody else wrote it. I don't know who it is, but it's somebody who wants to make me look really bad.

Molly: Why?

Alexis: I don't know. I wish I did. But the truth will come out at some point, it's just going to take a lot longer than I thought.

Matt: I just keep running the Brianna Hughes surgery over and over in my head, and I know I didn't do anything wrong. There were no mistakes.

Maxie: But you still think that your brother could have saved her.

Matt: Yes.

Maxie: You're jealous of Patrick a lot.

Matt: I just should have let him assist, then there would be no question, and possibly no lawsuit.

Maxie: People die all the time, people you care about like your patient or your sister or a cop you were falling in love with.

Matt: You sound like you know what you're talking about.

Maxie: Terrible things happen, but it sounds like this woman was already in really bad shape when she went into the E.R.

Matt: She was.

Maxie: So why waste time comparing yourself to your brother? I used to compare myself to Georgie all the time. She was basically perfect, so I would just come up short and end up really depressed and go do something stupid.

Matt: Yeah, I know a little something about that.

Maxie: Yeah, well, I can't bring Georgie back, but I can focus on the things that I do have, like a job that I love, a great family, an amazing complexion, a good fashion sense, and Spinelli. I'm always going to be "fair Maximista" to him, and he makes me want to be the person that he thinks I am. I love Spinelli with all my heart, and I never thought something like that would be possible. So if good things like that can happen to me, I think it could happen for you, too.

Matt: You know something?

Maxie: I shouldn't talk so much?

Matt: That Jackal, he's one lucky guy.

Maxie: Yeah.

Spinelli: Only a babe magnet who has not known a day in his life when all varieties of women did not fall at his feet would ask why I need to sing.

Jason: I really don't get it. You're one of the smartest people I have ever met. You are a genius. You're a good kid. You're kind. You're generous. I don't see what the problem is.

Spinelli: I fail miserably at most social situations. Social cues fly past. And although I pay the penalty, I never quite catch on to the game. I mean, all attempts to become manly have failed miserably. I mean, I can barely drive a car beyond 30 miles an hour.

Jason: That's not how Maxie sees you.

Spinelli: I know, I know. But as Maximista moves forward in her world of high fashion and parties and A-lists, I will surely be left behind, but think of all the scrawny specimens of manhood that transform themselves into veritable gods simply by singing in front of a rock band. All doors are opened to them. They live on the A-list forever.

Jason: Okay, let's not get crazy. It's karaoke night at Jakeís. Let's not turn this into something it isnít.

Spinelli: In other words, don't dream of something that will never happen?

Jason: No, I just think that all this stuff, this courtly stuff you're doing is just a way to protect yourself.

Spinelli: Perhaps.

Jason: Maybe it's time to trust Maxie and give her a little credit and tell her the truth.

Nikolas: So would you like a tour of the home? There are whole other rooms you haven't seen yet.

Rebecca: You know, actually, I need to go rescue my car.

Nikolas: Why? What's the problem?

Rebecca: The battery died when I was leaving Kellyís, which is why I'm so late. I had to leave a whole bunch of stuff in it.

Nikolas: That's all right. Alfred will send someone over and take care of it.

Rebecca: No, it's my responsibility, Nikolas, not Alfredís. I'm just going to get someone to push it to the curb, you know, and I'll get a new battery on pay day.

Nikolas: You don't have to live paycheck to paycheck anymore.

Rebecca: I've always lived paycheck to paycheck.

Nikolas: You need a reliable car and a supplement to your income.

Rebecca: What do you mean, supplement?

Nikolas: Well, you're part of my life now. I'll provide you with spending money.

Rebecca: There is no way that you're going to pay me to live with you.

Spinelli: Stone Cold's wisdom is clear, if terrifying.

Jason: Just tell Maxie that you love her, that you can't sing. She's going to understand.

Spinelli: Would you accompany me to the battleground of Jakeís?

Jason: No, you can do this on your own, Spinelli.

Spinelli: No, but once I look into fair Maximista's eyes and see that faith in me and remind her that she believes that it was her love that put a song in my heart, I fear I'll chicken out unless your stalwart presence is there.

Jason: Okay, I'll make sure you stay onstage.

Spinelli: Really? Gracious thanks.

[Pounding at door]

Officer: Jason Morgan?

Spinelli: No, he's not available.

Officer: Commissioner Scorpio wants you down at the station.

Spinelli: You can speak to his attorney. Just talk to his attorney.

Officer: Two men, suspected Zacchara soldiers, were found dead in the woods.

[For all our GH transcripts, visit]

Nikolas: This doesn't have to be a big deal. It's just money.

Rebecca: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Oh, okay, just money. See, that's how rich people talk.

Nikolas: Oh, so now I'm a stereotype.

Rebecca: No, you've never had to worry about money, Nikolas. I mean, it's always been there and you take if for granted that it always will be.

Nikolas: Really? Well, I actually pride myself on being an astute businessman.

Rebecca: Okay, I didn't mean it as a putdown. It's just that this whole idea is making me feel bought. I mean, what, is Alfred supposed to hand me a discreet envelope of bills whenever I leave in the morning?

Nikolas: No, I just thought every month I would put some money into your account.

Rebecca: Okay, like an allowance?

Nikolas: If you have a better suggestion, please.

Rebecca: Look, I really appreciate the gesture. It just doesn't feel right.

Nikolas: It doesn't feel right to me to have unlimited funds while the woman I'm living with is scrimping. What? What?

Rebecca: Nothing. I've just had a lot of fights about money, but it's usually because there wasn't enough. I mean, leave it to us to fight about too much.

Nikolas: I don't want to fight with you at all.

Rebecca: Okay, so let's drop it.

Nikolas: Okay.

Rebecca: Enjoy our first night together?

Nikolas: Agreed. So what do you want to do?

Rebecca: Anything as long as it doesn't involve money.

Nikolas: Okay.

Coleman: I thought I told you before, this ain't self-serve, brother.

Ethan: I'm a bartender. Your bar is in good hands.

Coleman: I let you slide the last time you were in here, but tonight we're playing by house rules.

Ethan: All right. Thank you.

Coleman: You got it.

Lucky: I was wondering if you would show up.

Ethan: I'm doing this for Lulu. She wants us to get to know each other better, which is fine. I'll just have to try and resist the urge to hit you.

Lucky: You know, I want you to understand something. You'll never be a part of my family, and we'll all be better off once you get out of town.

Alexis: The A.D.A. just called and said that you brought in a suspect in a double homicide?

Mac: We have a guy under arrest.

Alexis: Why didn't you call me? Who is it?

Mac: Jason Morgan.

Alexis: I'll be right there.

Mac: That won't be necessary.

Alexis: It most certainly will be necessary. I'm the D.A. That's my job. And the next time, could you notify me, please?

Mac: Alexis, really, you don't have to come in, all right? Spend some time with your kids.

Alexis: I have a job to do and I intend to do it. I have to go to work. All right, I promise you I won't take long. We are going to get through this. I love you both.

Molly: Mom's in bad trouble, isn't she?

Kristina: Please, Mom's the D.A. That job is her whole life. She'll never let anything mess it up.

Robin: The timing of those e-mails seems a bit convenient. It could be some sort of retribution from the mayor.

Patrick: So you think he released them to get back at Alexis for charging him with murder?

Robin: We can't rule out the possibilities that the e-mails are fake. It just doesn't seem like Alexis, though. Stalking the mayor, harassing him on the phone. Although, having postpartum depression myself, I know that anything is possible.

Matt: I owe you two an apology. Yeah, hey, uh, so I've been doing some thinking. I was actually thinking at Jakeís of all places, and I realized that I am dumping my frustration on the two people who are trying to help me. So I'm sorry.

Robin: Apology accepted.

Patrick: Same here.

Matt: Yeah, see, I have a choice, right? I can either let this thing beat me, or we can find out what really happened.

Patrick: Welcome aboard, little brother.

Diane: We have two Zacchara soldiers dead in the woods with a load of drugs.

Jason: I had nothing to do with the drugs. You know that.

Diane: Is that why you killed them, because they were trying to move drugs into Port Charles?

Jason: Do you really want me to answer that?

Diane: Okay, I have gone above and beyond while on your retainer, Jason. I have completely turned my personal life upside down. I have turned a blind eye to a long list of hypotheticals, and I have always gotten you out of trouble.

Jason: Mm-hmm.

Diane: Now I need a favor in return.

Jason: Okay, what?

Diane: Stay in lockup for a week.

Jason: What? Why would I do something like that?

Diane: Hear me out. Hear me out. I am sure you have heard about Alexis and the mayor and the dead mistress and the disastrous e-mails. The sharks are circling over at City Hall, and Alexis needs a win badly. If you were to allow the PCPD to keep you incarcerated for a week, it would at least look like Alexis is being tough on crime.

Jason: I cannot stay in jail for a week.

Diane: I strongly urge you to reconsider. You'd rack up points with the D.A. Plus, you could use the karma.

Alexis: I understand Mr. Morgan's counsel is in with him, which is great. It will save time.

Mac: You're not assigned to this case.

Alexis: I'm the D.A. I assign the cases.

Mac: Not anymore. City council took a vote of no confidence in you. If you don't resign, you're going to be fired.

Patrick: Why didn't you tell me Alexis killed someone?

Robin: Luis Alcazar. She pushed him off a balcony and pled temporary insanity. She claims she was defending Kristina.

Patrick: Andrea Floyd has never had a parking ticket. It makes killing Brianna Hughes a stretch.

Robin: Well, Luis Alcazar's death was an isolated incident.

Patrick: So what if she has another episode? She's already proven she's capable of murder.

Rebecca: I thought I'd put my stuff away, but it has already been sorted, hung, and folded by your staff.

Nikolas: Well, I hope you don't think that they invaded your privacy.

Rebecca: No, it's really kind of wonderful. You know, leave a messy room, wave a magic wand, come back, and everything's perfect. I could get used to that fast.

Nikolas: You sound a little ambivalent.

Rebecca: It's just that I've taken care of myself for so long, you know? If I get out of the habit, then I might resent having to do it again.

Nikolas: We just moved in together and now you're talking about being alone?

Rebecca: It's just moving a little fast. I don't know.

Nikolas: There's no reason to go slow at this point, is there? Although, we should probably speed up our plans for tonight.

Rebecca: Yeah, okay, I say we do something really silly.

Nikolas: Not really my strong suit, but --

Rebecca: See, this relationship goes both ways, you know? You introduce me to new things like invisible staff that scurry around like Cinderellaís mice, and I introduce you to new things like how to un-stuff your shirt.

Nikolas: What do you mean? You calling me a stuffed shirt?

Rebecca: Just a little a bit, just a little formal.

Nikolas: I can loosen up when I want to.

Rebecca: Okay, so tonight's your chance.

Nikolas: Okay, what did you have in mind?

Rebecca: Just another thing that you've never done with Emily. Yeah, come on. Let's go.

Lucky: You going to order another drink?

Lulu: Okay, here's the deal. We are all going to get along tonight. No fights. No yelling.

Lucky: Yeah, I don't believe that's going to happen.

Elizabeth: You can at least try.

Lulu: I will consider it an early birthday present, and you can make up for all the birthdays that you've missed.

Lucky: You don't have to try so hard.

Elizabeth: Oh, come on, Lucky. Where's the harm? Let's go sit down.

Maxie: Spinelli, hi.

Spinelli: Gracious greetings.

Maxie: I am so glad that you came early. Oh, and you've brought your own mic. That was very professional of you. But before we get started I just want you to know that you singing for me tonight is the sweetest thing that anyone's ever done for me.

Spinelli: Maximista, I have a confession to make.

Maxie: Coleman, look who's here.

Coleman: Dude, hey, man, we have not been this busy all year. You're the reason the whole thing came about. So thanks you to you, my man. You're going to be the star tonight.

Spinelli: There's something that I need to clarify.

Maxie: Hey, if you get nervous, just think of me.

Spinelli: I'll be honored --

Maxie: Oh!
