Alexis: Kristina doesn't drive. She has no license. So that idea is ludicrous.
Sam: Kristina was driving. She told me.
Alexis: If she caused that accident, which I don't believe that she did, she would never have driven away. She would have called for help and stayed on the scene until someone got there.
Sam: My goodness. Kristina was driving without a license. If she did cause that accident, her first instinct would be to cover it up.
Alexis: That may have been your instinct, but it wasn't Kristinaís.
Michael: You're right. I was driving recklessly. I ran Claudia off the road. It's my fault that Claudia lost her baby. My baby brother died, and instead of facing it, I ran away like a coward.
Sonny: You're not a coward. You're not a coward. I didn't mean--
Michael: It's true, though. I--I ran away from an accident that I caused, you know? Mom had to save Claudia because I didn't, and she could have died because of that. Nothing I do will bring your baby back.
Sonny: I'm sorry. Okay?
[Knocking on door]
Johnny: Claudia. You okay?
Claudia: I just keeping thinking that when the night started, my...my baby was inside me. Before I got in my car, my son was safe. He was supposed to grow inside me, not die inside me. If you love me, find out who drove me off the road. Find out who killed my son.
Carly: I don't know who ran Claudia's car off the road, but I know it wasn't Michael. I need you to call the police, have them come over here so I can give a statement tonight.
Carly: No, I don't want to do it tomorrow! Michael is innocent. He needs to know it, and so do the police.
Jax: Look, it was dark. Things happen very quickly. Let's not jump to conclusions.
Carly: It wasn't Michael's car!
Jax: He confessed, Carly.
Carly: I don't care! There is no chance that Michael ran Claudia off the road. He's not responsible for what happened to her baby. You guys think I'm lying. You think I'm lying to protect my son.
Olivia: I heard about Claudia's baby. John, I am so sorry. Um, I'm sure you're with her right now. Uh, if you need to talk or anything, I'll leave my cell phone on. Um, just call or come by no matter how late. Whatever you need.
Mike: Well, listen, I'm gonna have to check your references. Here's the application. Come back tomorrow, and we'll see, all right?
Dominic: Here I was thinking this was a friendly place?
Mike: Look, I don't rent to guys that show up out of nowhere in the middle of the night, okay?
Olivia: That's a very excellent policy, Mr. Corbin.
Dominic: And who asked you?
Olivia: Am I too late for a cup of coffee?
Mike: Yeah. You know, you're lucky. Kids came by, and I brewed a fresh pot. I got a-- I got a cup left.
Olivia: That's the cup I want.
Dominic: Coffee this late in the night, huh? What, are you, uh-- you working the night shift or something?
Olivia: I don't believe I caught your name.
Dominic: I'm Dominic Pirelli. And you are?
Olivia: Olivia Falconeri.
Dominic: Pleased to meet you.
Olivia: No, you're not.
Dominic: Not particularly, no.
Olivia: Prospective tenant is way too fresh, Mike. Of course, I'm sure you probably don't have any rooms available anyway.
Mike: Actually, one just opened up.
Dominic: Heh! It must be your lucky night.
Mike: Yeah, yeah. But I only rent to guys that got jobs.
Dominic: Oh, well, I work for Sonny Corinthos.
Mike: He sent you over here?
Dominic: Yeah. You know him?
Mike: Yeah. He's my son.
Olivia: Which may or may not work out in your favor.
Dominic: What? You know Mr. Corinthos, too?
Mike: Yeah, Olivia and Sonny grew up together.
Olivia: That was a long time ago. I no longer associate with Mr. Corinthos.
Johnny: Hey, we shouldn't even be fighting about this now. You should get some sleep.
Claudia: Find out who did this, and I'll sleep.
Johnny: I know who did it. He confessed, turned himself in.
Claudia: Call Uncle Rudy. He'll make sure someone takes care of him in jail.
Johnny: It was Michael. He ran you off the road.
Claudia: Michael Corinthos?
Johnny: Yes. It was an accident.
Claudia: Michael did this?
Johnny: Claudia, he never meant to hurt your baby, just like you never meant for him to get shot.
Carly: Okay, it's true. I would lie for Michael in a heartbeat, but I wouldn't lie to either one of you.
Jax: Okay, we can deal with this tomorrow. For now you need rest.
Carly: No, we need to call the police and tell them that Michael is innocent. Why the hell does he think he did this?
Jason: Because he was speeding on Harbor View Road, and somebody was tailgating him and then passed him--
Jax: Okay, let's just save the details for later, okay?
Carly: Jax, if you don't call Mac, I'm gonna call him myself.
Jax: [Sighs] All right.
Carly: What happened?
Jason: Michael--Michael chased the car that cut him off. He was driving too fast, and he nearly hit another car head on, and he thinks it was Claudia.
Carly: Did he see her face?
Carly: So he didn't even see Claudia's car roll, and he went and confessed?
Jason: No, he was--he was angry. He wasn't sure what happened. He kept driving. He slid off the road, and that's when he called me.
Carly: Did he talk to you about Claudia then?
Jason: Well, neither one of us knew that Claudia had been in an accident. But when Michael found out, you know, he started putting these pieces together and all of a sudden decided he's the one who caused it.
Carly: Oh, he didn't! I hate that car that Sonny gave him. I would recognize it in a minute.
Jason: What--what kind of car did you see?
Carly: I--it was tiny. It was a little car, and it was light. It was like a white color.
Jason: Okay, so it's possible he had a near collision with somebody else besides Claudia.
Jax: Look, I know you both want to help Michael. So do I. But don't get your hopes up, Carly. You're his mother. That doesn't exactly qualify you as an objective witness.
Sam: Just to be clear, I covered up a mistake that you made tonight. I erased surveillance footage of you at the mayor's house.
Alexis: I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I didn't mean it. I--I didnít. I'm just upset. If Kristina did this, what you say that she did, I would know that if she did this, she would tell me.
Sam: If she did this, she is scared. She needs to know that you're gonna be here for her to help her and to love her even though she made a mistake.
Alexis: And I'll love her no matter what she does. She knows that. Why are you so determined to blame her for something that she didn't do?
Sam: No, no, no. She--she thinks that she has to be perfect for you all the time.
Alexis: You are blaming her for Claudia's accident that Michael already confessed to.
Sam: Talk to her. Let--let her tell you the truth. Let her-- listen to her and let her tell you what really happened.
Alexis: I already--she told me already.
Sam: No, she's--let her tell you the truth, not the cover story that you want to hear.
Alexis: I don't want to hear any of this.
Sam: Mom, I am not trying to blame her for this. I want to help her.
Alexis: You're not helping.
Sam: If she caused Claudia's accident, we have a major problem on our hands.
Alexis: Good night, Sam.
[Alexis breathing heavily]
Sonny: Listen... all that--what I said before, I didn't--I didn't mean it.
Michael: It's what I deserve.
Sonny: No, listen. I had no reason and no right to take my anger out on--I'm not even mad at you.
Michael: You should be.
Sonny: No, I'm mad at myself for buying you that damn car.
Michael: I made the choice to drive it.
Sonny: Yeah, but the choice shouldn't have been put in front of you. Your mother was right. See, wh--wh--what I'm doing is I'm buying things to make myself feel better because it was my fault you got shot. But the thing is, you're the one who keeps getting hurt.
Michael: Yeah, but I made the choice to get behind that wheel tonight. You know, I--you didn't make me. You--you didn't make me lose my temper. You didn't--
Sonny: But the anger's a physical thing. Dr. Drake said it's gonna take time to stabilize. I knew that, and I still bought you the damn car even though your mother begged me not to.
Michael: Is she gonna be okay?
Sonny: Yeah, but you know your mother. She pushes herself too hard, and she risked her life saving Claudia and the baby.
Michael: Because of me.
Sonny: Okay, Michael... you gotta give me and Jason time to sort things out because I can tell you right now Diane is-- is planning your defense.
Michael: Diane can't change what I've done.
Sonny: Okay, I don't want you to think about this accident. I don't want you to think about the evidence. I don't want you to think about the police. Okay? All I want you to do is just move forward. That's all I want you to do.
Michael: Well, I mean, you don't have to protect me from what I did.
Sonny: We all make mistakes, right? You make mistakes. I make mistakes. Look, I want you just to forget about what-- everything that I said to you tonight. Tonight was on me, not you.
Michael: All--all you've done is try and help me, you know? Even when you yell at me. It's how our family is. We always are saying things and yelling stuff that we don't really mean. But I know that you and Mom really love me.
Sonny: We love you tremendously. That's why you're gonna let me take care of this, 'cause I have a--I have a way of making things go away.
Michael: Dad, I need to own this, Dad. No matter how many excuses you come up with, it's still my fault that Claudia's baby died. I mean, I--
Edward: Damn you, Corinthos. That boy has spent his entire life paying for your mind-boggling selfishness. But that's over as of now. Get out of this house. You stay the hell away from my great-grandson.
Claudia: You think I deserve this, don't you?
Johnny: You know that's not true.
Claudia: No, you think that this is karma because I'm responsible for Michael getting shot.
Johnny: I'm just saying both situations were accidents.
Claudia: No, John, you're saying this is justice. You're saying that I'm getting what I deserve because I put the hit out on Sonny and Michael got shot instead.
Johnny: You're putting words in my mouth.
Claudia: I don't think I am. I'm allowed to be angry, Johnny.
Johnny: I'm not saying that you're not.
Claudia: Maybe when this night started it doesn't matter who was behind the wheels. Sonny and I had a baby, and now we don't, and someone's gonna pay for that.
Johnny: Michael already paid, Claudia. He paid with a year of his life because of what we did to him. Now he's gone and turned himself in to the cops for--
Claudia: So what? So what? I'm supposed to feel sorry for Michael? He killed my son.
Johnny: Again, it was an accident. And if you can't find any compassion for Michael, just know that he has been punished enough already.
Claudia: You never wanted me to have this baby to begin with.
Johnny: I never wanted you to get hurt. I never wanted you to marry a man who wasn't gonna love you genuinely. And I'm not saying that everybody's even now, but I am saying it's over. Your baby is gone, and now the truth about that shooting is gonna come out. It's bound to, and there's nothing we can do to stop it.
Carly: I saw the car that ran Claudia off the road, and it wasn't Michaelís.
Mac: Do you remember what kind of car it was?
Carly: It was small, and it was light. It was like white. I told Lucky this.
Mac: You also said it wasn't an SUV or a truck, that you didn't think it was a sedan.
Carly: It also wasn't a silver convertible.
Mac: Uh, this seems pretty convenient. I mean, as soon as you found out Michael confessed, you remembered that the car that made Claudia crash wasn't his?
Jason: I mean, do you have evidence against Michael? Did you even suspect him before he confessed, Mac?
Mac: No, it was a surprise.
Jason: Okay, so did you suspect anybody else before that?
Mac: Alexis Davis was driving on Harbor View Road tonight. You know, apparently she was-- she had some kind of confrontation with the mayor and his wife. She was one of the first people on the scene, which was odd.
Carly: So you just pushed that aside when Michael confessed?
Mac: We don't have any evidence against her.
Carly: No, you took the confession of a 17-year-old, brain-injured child, and what...
[Monitor beeping loudly]
Carly: You just set aside your investigation of the brilliant attorney who has gotten away with murder before? Do you remember Luis Alcazar? Do you? Because she claimed to be nuts then. How do we know she didn't freak out tonight?
Jax: Okay, okay, okay. You know what? You've given Mac your statement, and that is all--
Carly: Okay, listen. People have filed false confessions before. Michael is scared, and he wasn't thinking.
Mac: I'll take that into consideration.
Carly: Michael didn't do this, Mac!
[Monitor beeping loudly]
Mac: Carly, I want to be fair about this, okay? I'll, uh, wait until you're feeling a little better before we amend your original statement.
Carly: Okay, so what you're telling me is you want me to back off so you can let Michael's confession stand, right? But you just remember, I was there, I saw the accident, and Michael didn't do it.
Edward: I have many regrets in my life, but the worst by far is allowing you to come in and steal A.J.'s little boy right away from us years ago. You came in, you took him away, and see what you've done to him?
Michael: What happened tonight was not--
Edward: You have spent your entire life defending him, making excuses for him, and paying for his--his egregious arrogance, and it's over.
Sonny: I love my son, and--
Edward: Oh, he's not even your own flesh and blood. He is a Quartermaine! And we have him here now, and we're going to love him. And I want you to leave this house immediately, or I'm calling the police.
Michael: My dad didn't do anything!
Edward: I don't care!
Sonny: Hey, hey. It's not worth it! He wants me to leave, I'm gonna leave. Get some rest. I'll see you real soon, okay?
Sonny: How's Carly?
Jason: She's, uh, trying to stay calm.
Sonny: Does she know that Michael caused Claudia's accident?
Jason: No, well, we--we don't know that Michael did this.
Sonny: What are you--I just talked to him. He told me everything. He--he wants to own up to it and deal with the consequences.
Jason: We know that Michael had a near-collision, but I don't think it was with Claudia.
Sonny: Based on what?
Jason: Based on Carly. She saw the car that ran Claudia off the road, and she swears it wasn't Michaelís.
[Carly breathing deeply]
Carly: Everything okay, baby girl? Mommy just has to get her blood pressure down. We're gonna be okay.
Carly: What do you want?
Alexis: I wanted to come over here personally and talk to you about this--about Michael's situation. I spoke to a judge. I implored him to take into consideration his mental, his emotional, his physical condition. The judge wasn't having much of it, so the best that we may be able to do is plead him out, 6 months in a juvenile facility.
Carly: Now that's impressive.
Alexis: I know it's not good enough, and I'm not gonna stop trying--
Carly: You couldn't ever bring a case against Sonny, and you couldn't ever convict Jason of anything, but you can prosecute Michael for something he didn't do. Wow.
Alexis: The problem is Michael has confessed to this.
Carly: Right, and that worked out perfect for you.
Alexis: Carly, I'm trying to help.
Carly: You're trying to cover your own ass at Michael's expense, and there's no way in hell I'm gonna let you.
Alexis: Where are you getting this from?
Carly: We both know Michael didn't run Claudia off the road tonight. You did.
Edward: Well, I already have calls in to our attorneys. Can't have you defended by a mob lawyer. You'd be found guilty even before the facts are in.
Michael: But I am guilty.
Edward: That's beside the point. The Quartermaine lawyers have a tradition of making guilty people look innocent. You'll be fine, son. All you have to do is stay away from Sonny.
Sonny: I admire my father. I want to be like him.
Edward: Oh, please. Sonny Corinthos is an interloping thug who stole you away from your true family. And you're here now, son, and--and we love you. And we're going to protect you no matter what you've done. But now I think you should go up to bed. You look terrible.
Michael: I'll, uh, be up there in a little while.
Edward: When was the last time you ate anything? I'm gonna have Cook fix you something.
Michael: No, don't wake her up. I'll just raid the fridge.
Edward: Oh, you're a braver man than I am, Gunga Din. Don't you wake her up.
Michael: What are you doing here?
Kristina: I needed to warn you. My mom talked to a judge. You're going to do at least 6 months in juvenile detention.
Claudia: So what are you going to do about Michael?
Claudia: He killed my son, John. I don't care if it was an accident. Michael is responsible.
Johnny: I'm not gonna fight with you about this, okay? What I will do and what I can do is protect you from Sonny. And we need to get you out of here as soon as you can.
Claudia: You're not getting it at all.
Johnny: I'm trying to help you.
Claudia: I don't care what Sonny finds out. In fact, I might tell him myself. I don't care what Jason does to me.
Johnny: Okay, you are not thinking straight.
Claudia: No, John. Sonny and I watched our son die tonight. We watched his heart stop. And then I let some doctor come in here and scrape out what was left of him. No one can hurt me now. Nothing can be worse than that.
Johnny: I'm sorry.
Claudia: Don't act like you care.
Johnny: You are my sister, and I love you.
Claudia: You wanted my baby to die.
Johnny: Okay, you know what, Claudia? I'm sorry that you feel that way, but that is--
Claudia: Get out.
Johnny: I don't want you to be alone.
Claudia: No. Get out. I can't stand the sight of you. Get out!
Sonny: Why would Michael confess to something he didn't do?
Jason: Michael was driving recklessly on Harbor View tonight.
Jason: We know that he swerved into another lane, almost hit somebody head-on, but Michael did not see the crash, Sonny. He didn't even stop until he slid off the road. That's why he called me. So I went to get him, I took him to the Quartermaines, and then we find out that Claudia was in an accident. All of a sudden he thinks he did it. So he goes down to the P.C.P. before I could get there, he--he started to confess.
Sonny: What are you thinking, it was another driver? That he drove somebody else off the road?
Jason: All we know is he took a turn too wide, almost hit somebody. But Carly saw the car that ran Claudia off the road. She said it wasn't Michaelís.
Sonny: Well, Carly's gonna protect her son. You know that.
Jason: Yeah, I know that. She would lie to the cops, but she's not gonna lie to me.
Sonny: So she hears Michael, uh, confess, and now she remembers what happened to the car?
Jason: That doesn't--that doesn't mean that she's lying.
Sonny: Okay, we all want to believe that Michael didn't do this, but all the information we got so far points to him. He looked me in the eye, and he said to me that he did this. So he admitted it. So--
Jason: So you think he's guilty.
Sonny: All we can do for Michael right now is damage control.
Carly: You got in a fight with the mayor's wife, and then you pulled on to Harbor View Road driving like a maniac. You're the one who drove Claudia off the road. Then you showed up later to check out the evidence.
Alexis: Carly, where are you getting this from?
Carly: I was there. It wasn't Michael's car, and I'm beginning to think it was yours.
Alexis: I saw the report--the description that you gave to Lucky. In that report, you said that you couldn't clearly recall the car--
Carly: I said that it was a small, light-colored car, kind of like the new white hybrid you're driving around.
Alexis: I understand your need to protect your son. I would do the same thing if I were in your position.
Carly: You know what Mac told me? You were the only suspect until Michael confessed.
Alexis: Carly, I didn't do it, nor was I charged.
Carly: And now you're taking advantage of Michael, who is confused and--
Alexis: Michael walked into that police station on his own and--
Carly: Michael is innocent, and I am not gonna let you frame him, you self-righteous bitch, 'cause it's not gonna happen! Do you hear me?
Jax: Alexis? What are you doing here this late?
Alexis: Jax, I'm sorry.
Carly: Alexis is the one that caused the accident, and now she's trying to frame Michael.
Michael: What'd your mom say exactly?
Kristina: She went to the station to look over your confession to see if she could help you.
Michael: [Sighs] Why would Alexis do that? She can't stand me.
Kristina: I think she's covering for herself. My mom was at the mayor's tonight. She was driving on Harbor View Road. I think there's a good chance she made Claudia crash.
Michael: Claudia lost the baby.
Kristina: It was an accident. Nobody ever meant to hurt that baby or anyone else.
Michael: Don't worry about your mom because I know I'm the one who did it. Okay? I swerved into her lane. I made Claudia crash, and whatever happens to me, I deserve it.
Kristina: You're a minor recovering from a head injury. There's no way you should be locked up for something that you couldn't help, that you didn't mean to do.
[Knocking on door]
Johnny: I got your message.
Olivia: Yeah. Come in. How is your sister?
Johnny: Not good. Not good. Yeah.
Olivia: It's just awful what happened.
Johnny: This baby, he just died inside of her. She and Sonny watched the heart stop on the monitor. [Sighs]
Olivia: She's in my prayers. Okay? So are you.
Johnny: Thanks. I gotta tell you something. [Sighs]
Johnny: I've had this secret for a long time, and it's gonna come out soon. I--I don't know. I don't know where to start.
Olivia: Well, why don't you start at the beginning?
Johnny: Okay. Uh...what happened to Claudia tonight, it was a nightmare.
Johnny: But...Claudia and I sort of started the whole thing, sort of. Claudia took out a hit on Sonny a while back, and she hired this guy named Devlin who went and hired Jerry Jacks. And I didn't know all the details of this whole thing. I didn't know when or where. But I could have stopped it, and I didnít. But Claudia was hell-bent on getting this thing done because of what Sonny did to me, and...whatever. It doesn't matter. What matters is this guy Devlin, he pulled the trigger, and he missed, and the bullet ricocheted, hit Michael, and Claudia and I are responsible for getting Michael shot.
Olivia: No. You're not. Claudia is. And I've known for months.
Sam: Hi. Heh!
Jason: Heh heh! What's up?
Sam: I don't have my key anymore. I thought it would be rude to pick the lock.
Jason: Come on in.
Sam: Good thing. I--it gave me some time to sort of think out here.
Jason: Well, did you come up with anything?
Sam: Yeah, I did. Um, I saw on the news that Michael confessed. I don't think he did it, Jason.
Jason: Well, neither do I.
Sam: Why not?
Jason: Well, Carly remembered something. She remembers the car that forced Claudia off the road, and she said it wasn't Michaelís.
Sam: Does she know what it looks like?
Jason: A light-colored compact car.
Sam: Oh, I was afraid of that. Like a white hybrid, maybe? That's what Kristina drives.
Kristina: Maybe my mother's wrong. Maybe Diane Miller can get you out of this. She gets Jason and our dad acquitted all the time.
Michael: Yeah, and I'm sure the Quartermaines will help me out, too, but that's not the point. I killed our unborn baby brother, and I should pay for that.
Kristina: You didn't mean to hurt anyone. You were just driving too fast.
Michael: I was trying to catch up with the guy who cut me off, then these headlights came out of nowhere, and I ran Claudia off the road. I didn't even stop.
Kristina: Are you absolutely sure it was Claudia's car?
Michael: It had to be.
Kristina: You weren't the only person out driving the point tonight. Maybe someone else--
Michael: When I was little, um, and things got dangerous, my dad would send me and Morgan off to the island.
Kristina: What was it like?
Michael: Paradise, you know? Beaches forever. Dad owned everything--the buildings, casinos, the island itself, you know? We would hang out on the beach all day almost every day.
Kristina: I always wanted to go.
Michael: You were invited.
Kristina: Is that what Dad told you?
Michael: I mean, yeah, I'm sure you were. Yeah, we would have had such a good time.
Kristina: My mom would have never let me go anyway.
Michael: Well, it did get lonely, you know? But the one thing I learned was that sometimes it's a good idea to just disappear.
Kristina: You don't mean now.
Michael: It'll be better for everyone.
Kristina: Where will you go?
Michael: I don't know. Not the island 'cause that's the first place Dad'll look. I'll go... who knows? Um, somewhere. Canada? Mexico? You know, I'll just vanish like Jason used to. I'll change my name. I'll get a job.
Kristina: What about school?
Michael: Dad barely even finished high school. He did fine.
Kristina: But your situation is completely different. You have serious medical issues!
Michael: Look, Dad dealt with a lot of stuff when he was younger, too, but he never asked anyone to get him out of trouble. Dad took care of himself, and so will I.
Carly: Yeah, your good friend here, she caused the accident, and now she's trying to blame Michael.
Alexis: Jax, I'm sorry.
Carly: You're not gonna get away with it. I'm gonna prove it. I saw the car. I saw your car. It was a white hybrid.
Jax: All right, Alexis. Now's not a good time.
Alexis: I agree. Again, I'm sorry.
[Door opens and closes]
Jax: You promised me that you would take it easy. You need to take care of yourself.
Carly: I am not gonna lie here in this bed while she frames my kid! Michael's car was nowhere near that accident, and you have to believe me.
Jax: I believe that you believe you're telling the truth.
Carly: Oh, my God, that's not the same thing! What the hell is that?
Jax: I will take care of Michael, okay? I will do whatever I have to do to prove he's innocent.
Carly: Even if that means going up against Alexis?
Jax: Yes. I will do whatever it takes. You need to--you need to trust me, okay? You don't have to fight this battle alone, Carly.
Carly: Michael's innocent. I know he's innocent.
Johnny: How did you find out Claudia was responsible for Michael's shooting?
Olivia: Well, how much do you know about the, uh, DVDs that Jerry Jacks made?
Johnny: [Scoffs] You saw one of those things?
Olivia: By accident. I walked in on Jax listening to Jerry spell the whole thing out. Now, that guy, what a piece of work.
Olivia: I heard about how Claudia hired him. I heard about how he made all the DVDs and made her search for them, the whole sick, twisted scenario.
Johnny: When was this?
Olivia: It was months ago. All that time I've been watching you, trying to protect your sister. And I'd want to tell you...I'd want to tell everyone so many times.
Johnny: Why didn't you?
Sonny: I need to tell you something.
Claudia: I know. It was Michael.
Sonny: And I know that you think like I do, and you--you want justice. You want revenge. In your heart, you want whoever did this to pay even though it was an accident.
Claudia: Our baby deserved to live.
Sonny: It was--it was my fault he didn't get the chance. I bought Michael this car, and now...he's paying for my mistake.
Claudia: No, Sonny. It's our baby who paid.
Sonny: Punishing Michael is not gonna bring our baby back.
Claudia: I know.
Sonny: I can't lose another child.
Claudia: What are you asking me to do?
Olivia: I know how to keep a secret, John, and this-- this just wasn't one to tell. This was on Jax. He felt guilty. He blamed himself for jerry being in town when Claudia hired him.
Johnny: Yeah, but Claudia would have hired somebody else. She was determined, okay? But why would Jerry tell Jax anyway?
Olivia: I don't know. Some kind of twisted remorse or something? I...then Carly found out that she was pregnant, and then she basically found out that she would die if she got stressed out. So it just seemed like the thing to do to keep it quiet. And so I did.
Johnny: Wow. So you could have destroyed Carly's life at any time, huh?
Olivia: Well, I don't want anyone's murder on my hands, not even Claudiaís. Sonny would have killed her. And then she got pregnant.
Johnny: Yeah, well, heh! She's not pregnant anymore. So now Claudia's back to square one, and when Sonny finds out that she's responsible for Michael's shooting, he's gonna kill her.
Claudia: What's gonna happen to Michael now?
Sonny: I got no right to ask you what I'm gonna ask you, but my son's future's at stake, so... did you see the car that ran you off the road?
Claudia: I don't remember anything except just the, um... I remember the lights and, um, the crash, and the pain, then Carly calling 911.
Sonny: Okay, here's the thing. Carly says that the car that swerved to hit you or whatever, it was not Michaelís. And here's what I need from you. Could you back her up? Could you say that the car wasn't Michael's?
Claudia: I'll say whatever you need me to.
Alexis: Honestly, I was just trying to help.
Jax: I know, I know, but you should've checked with me first.
Alexis: All right. I had no idea that she thought I could have caused the accident.
Jax: Carly's convinced the car she saw force Claudia off the road wasn't Michael's, okay?
Alexis: Do you believe her?
Jax: Of course I believe her, but I haven't seen much hard evidence either way.
Alexis: But Michael confessed.
Jax: Look, he is a minor recovering from brain damage. Any competent lawyer can get his confession thrown out.
Alexis: [Sighs] I hope so. But this is pretty serious since Claudia now has miscarried. If Michael did do this, covering up is only gonna make it worse.
Jason: So if--if Kristina did this, would she have Michael take the fall?
Sam: I don't know. Kristina is under relentless pressure to be perfect. I don't think she has the option of confessing right now.
Jason: So she'd let Michael take the blame.
Sam: Michael is surrounded by people who genuinely love him. He's got you and Carly and-- and Jax and Sonny and-- and the Quartermaines. He's got everybody. The more he messes up, the more people adore him. It is--it's a different story for Kristina. She is desperately seeking Alexisí approval, and you know she has got pretty high standards. I just think that Kristina's afraid that if she confesses, she'll lose her mom.
Jason: I'm sorry, but I cannot let Michael pay for what Kristina did.
Sam: I understand. And just like you feel like you have to protect Michael, I have to protect Kristina.
Kristina: I'm going with you.
Michael: You canít.
Kristina: I mean it, Michael. I'm so sick of being my mother's perfect daughter. She's a liar and a hypocrite, and if I don't get out, I'll end up just like her.
Michael: Kristina, I'm not coming back.
Kristina: I don't care.
Michael: I don't even know where I'm going!
Kristina: All my life I've dreamed of running away like you did when you were little. You were so brave to just strike out on your own. I never had--
Michael: What about school? You have perfect grades.
Kristina: I don't care.
Michael: What about Kiefer?
Kristina: I don't think he'll miss me.
Michael: Molly needs you. So does Alexis. And you didn't do anything wrong. You have no reason to leave.
Kristina: You're my brother, and I love you, and I can't let you go out there alone.
Michael: So you're gonna drop your whole life for me?
Kristina: Please, I have plenty of reasons to leave, so don't let it go to your head, okay? Let's go.
