Nikolas: Morning.

Rebecca: Hi. How was your ride?

Nikolas: It was great.

Rebecca: Yeah? Good.

Nikolas: Mmm. Sleep well?

Rebecca: Yeah, great.

Nikolas: Good.

Rebecca: Great. I always sleep great when I'm in your bed. And I woke up to the most amazing coincidence.

Nikolas: What's that?

Rebecca: Yeah, well, last night, you know, I casually mentioned how much I love sour cream coffee cake.

[Nikolas gasps]

Rebecca: And then, yeah!

Nikolas: What? Oh, no way!

Rebecca: This morning, I came down, and, yeah. I know.

Nikolas: No! Fresh baked sour cream coffee cake. What are the odds of that?

Rebecca: Astronomical, I guess.

[Nikolas chuckles]

Rebecca: Thank you. [Laughs]

Nikolas: Okay, you got me. I spoke to the chef.

Rebecca: Yeah?

Nikolas: For purely selfish reasons. I just really like to see you smile.

Rebecca: Well, you're going to have to get used to that.

Nikolas: You're welcome.

Rebecca: It was a lovely surprise.

Nikolas: Well, I'm glad you decided to stay around, because I have something very important to ask you.

Rebecca: Don't even bother. The answer's no.

Elizabeth: Hi. Well, this can't be good.

Lucky: I need your advice.

Elizabeth: Should I be sitting down?

Lucky: You know what? You probably won't even blink. I found something out.

Cameron: Stupid thing!

Elizabeth: Oh.

Carly: I'm sorry, Marty. I don't care about Margoís personal issues. She's an event planner, and this is a huge wedding. No, we're talking a lot of money here. Tell her to get her butt to work.

[Doorbell rings]

Carly: Come in, Olivia. Look, you're going to have to let me know as soon as possible, 'cause Iím gonna have to see if Olivia can step in. All right. Thank you Marty. Bye.

Olivia: Why am I stepping in?

Carly: Margo. She's trying to get fired. And today is that Brentano wedding.

Olivia: Oh, I'm so sick of that woman and her issues.

Carly: Tell me about it. Look, if she can't make it, will you step in?

Olivia: Of course. Whatever you need.

Carly: Oh, thank you. I don't know what we did without you before. Promise me you'll never leave.

[Olivia hums]

Carly: If I give you a raise, will you never leave?

Olivia: I wouldn't turn it down.

Carly: Done. Okay. What do you have for me?

Olivia: I have the balcony redesigns. They look good to me, but I have terrible taste. You need to sign off on those.

Carly: Great. We'll look at it in the car. You're driving.

Olivia: Excu--uh, what?

Carly: Yeah. Once I get to the hotel, I can get more work done. Come on.

Kiefer: I need to talk to you.

Morgan: About what?

Kiefer: Your brother. Where the hell's he taking K?

Morgan: I don't know.

Kiefer: Listen, don't give me that crap. You do know. And you're going to tell me right now.

Elizabeth: You know, Daddy's right. You don't need to be so hard on yourself or get so upset. It takes a lot of practice making a space ship out of these blocks, right?

Lucky: Yeah, who cares about those pictures, all right?

Cameron: Yeah.

Lucky: It's way more fun to build your own, isn't it?

Cameron: Yeah.

Lucky: All right. Here's the mission. I want you to spend this afternoon using these blocks to build the craziest monster the world has ever seen.

[Elizabeth gasps]

Elizabeth: Oh, that will be fun.

Lucky: And when I get off of work, I'm going to come over, and we'll build a spaceship. Is that a deal?

Cameron: Deal, Dad.

Lucky: All right. [Chuckles]

[Horn honks]

Elizabeth: Do you hear that?

Lucky: Who's here?

Elizabeth: Benji's here. You ready to go to the aquarium?

Cameron: Mm-hmm.

Lucky: All right.

Elizabeth: Come on. Let's not keep them waiting. You're going to be a good boy for me, right? Listen to Benji's mommy, okay?

Lucky: Have fun.

Elizabeth: Put your arm in there. Here. Take it. Just hold it. Okay. Love you.

Cameron: I love you.

Elizabeth: Thank you.

Cameron: Bye, Mommy.

Elizabeth: Bye, pumpkin.

Lucky: Bye.

Cameron: Bye, Mommy.

Elizabeth: Bye, baby doll.

Lucky: Have fun.

Elizabeth: Thanks for all that. Some moments just need a father's touch.

Lucky: Yeah. At least there's somebody in my family I can help.

[Car departs]

Nikolas: Wait a minute. How can you refuse? You haven't even heard the question yet.

Rebecca: Because I know what you're going to do.

Nikolas: Think so?

Rebecca: Yes. You were going to ask me to move back in with you, and I'm asking you, please, donít. Nikolas, I've had such a wonderful time with you. I mean, the last thing I want to do is ruin it by getting into another fight.

Nikolas: That's not what I was going to ask you.

Rebecca: Oh.

Nikolas: I was going...

Rebecca: Mm-hmm.

Nikolas: To invite you...

Rebecca: Yes?

Nikolas: On a trip with me.

Rebecca: A trip? Oh, okay. Great. Uh, where are we going to go? Weekend in Atlantic City?

Nikolas: No.

Rebecca: Oh, come on!

Nikolas: Get your head out of the poker room for one second. Think bigger.

Rebecca: Yeah?

Nikolas: More continental.

Rebecca: God, I don't know. I'm--I'm lost. [Chuckles]

Nikolas: See, I just--I want you to know who I really am.

Rebecca: Yeah.

Nikolas: Why I'm the way I am. And the only way to really do that is to take you to where it all started.

Rebecca: What? You're going to take me to Greece?

Nikolas: Mm-hmm. On my family's island.

Rebecca: Oh, my God.

Nikolas: I want to show you my childhood...

Rebecca: Yeah?

Nikolas: Introduce you to all the people who knew me then, and...I want you to get to know my son. I want you and I to take Spencer to Greece.

Rebecca: Okay. When do we go?

Nikolas: Today.

Olivia: Okay. Exactly what am I supposed to be here, an idiot?

Carly: No, you're a friend. You're a very, very good friend.

Olivia: Right. Right. I'm sure that Dr. Lee wouldn't approve if I tackled you and tied you to the sofa, but that's what I would do before I took you into work today.

Carly: I have been following doctors' orders till they're coming out of my ears. I'm fine, my stress levels are fine, and I'll be better when I get to work.

Olivia: Honey, I know what you're doing here. You're trying to distract yourself from worrying about Michael.

Carly: Yeah. See, this is why I don't have girlfriends, because you're all too knowing, and you're hard to fool. Yes. Okay, fine. I think about Michael 24/7, and I need a distraction. There's also the timing thing.

[Olivia sighs]

Carly: Jax needs to be convinced that I can handle work and my health all at the same time. And as you know, Jax is on a business trip. So I'm going to take advantage of the situation. I am going to get back into the swing of things. I am. So when Jax walks back in, and he sees me sitting behind my desk, he's going to see that I'm calm and efficient. He's going to see that I can have a life of my own and that I can handle carrying this baby to term all at the same time.

Olivia: Carly, please sit.

Carly: No.

Olivia: Sit down.

[Carly sighs]

Olivia: Okay. Honey, you are already doing the most important job that you can be doing, which is getting the rest that you need. Does that read as boring to a type "a" personality such as yourself? You're damn straight. I get that, okay? But there's something more important going on here than your need to be hyperactive, okay? That little baby inside you needs her mommy to devote this time entirely to her. Okay? There's no choice here, honey. You cannot go into work.

Morgan: You're in my way.

Kiefer: Come on.

Morgan: My tickets!

Kiefer: That whack job you call your brother is going to trash K's life. I'm not going to let that happen. I know Michael's been emailing you, okay? So you're going to tell me exactly where he is--

Dominic: Where are you from?

Kiefer: I don't do gangs, man.

Dominic: Where are you from?

Kiefer: Here, Port Charles.

Dominic: Oh, yeah? I'm from Bensonhurst. You want to know what we do in our neighborhood to punk teenagers who pick on little kids?

Morgan: Boy, you really messed up this time, Kiefer. This guy's one of my dadís.

Dominic: How you doing, kid?

Morgan: A lot better now. Come up on me again, I'll tell my dad. You'll meet more guys who work for him.

[Kiefer panting]

Dominic: Think you can, uh, wrap your head around that?

Kiefer: Yeah, no problem.

Dominic: Yeah, okay.

Kiefer: Got it.

Dominic: Move along.

Morgan: That was awesome. Thanks for the save.

Dominic: Hey, no problem. Are these yours? Yankees? I would say your dad raised you right.

Guard: Sit opposite the prisoner. Keep your hands on the table. No physical contact and no exchange of items.

Johnny: Got it.

[Anthony chuckles]

[Door shuts]

Anthony: Such an honor. My only son finally deigns to visit his poor old locked-up dad. Have a seat. I'd order you a drink, but I gave my butler the day off.

Johnny: I'm here. Why?

Anthony: No social amenities? No, "Hey Dad, you look good, considering"? You break my heart, John.

Johnny: What do you want?

Anthony: All right. Have it your way. I hear things from the outside, things that concern me, because despite your history of ungratefulness... everything I think or do is about ensuring your future.

Johnny: The point?

Anthony: I'm relieved you found a way to coexist with your brother-in-law. It concerns me that your cooperation is so enthusiastic.

Johnny: Well...what would you prefer, hmm? That in the name of avenging you, I kill Sonny and take control of the organization?

Anthony: It's enough that you're in position. I'll do the rest.

Robin: Okay, little girl. Here we are in front of Mayor Floydís pretentious mansion. Now, your job is to assist mommy by just being the adorable little girl that you are. Because, as you see, babies are magnets. They get people talking. All right? So just sit there, look cute, and I will try and nab some neighbors that walk by. [Clicks] Oh. Okay. You're on. You feel better now? You got all clean and changed?

Woman: Can I help you with anything?

Robin: Oh! No, thank you. Just finishing up a diaper change stop.

[Woman gasps]

Woman: What a bundle of joy.

[Emma cries]

Woman: Ohh.

Robin: This is Emma.

Woman: Hi, Emma. Hi, Emma.

Robin: It's okay, baby. She's shy.

Woman: She's precious.

[Robin laughs]

Woman: Aww.

Robin: Well, I'm biased. I think so. Um, do you live around here?

Woman: In my dreams. I can't afford a house on Harbor View. I work for the mayor and his wife, one of their housekeepers. Hi, little girl.


Elizabeth: You look like you forgot to eat, and I'm guessing you were up all night thinking about whatever it is you're about to tell me.

Lucky: Hey, thanks for breakfast and making me realize how much you mean to me all over again.

Elizabeth: Wow. A bagel did all that?

Lucky: No, just the way we work together. Without even thinking, the way we calmed cam down? You and I have a bond. No matter how far we drift apart, we'll always have a chance to make it right.

Elizabeth: Yeah. I realize that, too, even though there was many times I thought we'd never speak to each other again, much less be close. But somehow, it always fixes itself. Like, as long as you and I are both alive, there will always be a possibility of reconnecting.

Lucky: We're so blessed to have that. But Nikolas, he doesn't, not since Em has been gone. Maybe missing her or needing her has left him vulnerable.

Elizabeth: Is this about Rebecca, she asked with dread?

Lucky: You were right about her all along. The only real reason Rebecca came back to Port Charles was to bilk money out of Emilyís loved ones, including Nikolas.

Rebecca: I'm going to have to say that the last thing I expected when I woke up this morning was to be whisked off to Greece with your son I've never met before by the end of the day.

Nikolas: Okay--okay.

Rebecca: Yeah.

Nikolas: All right. Not a definite no. That's--that's good. We're making progress here.

Rebecca: I mean, yeah. To be honest, Nikolas, I'd love to go, but--

Nikolas: But? Stop--stop right there. You'd love to go. So we go.

Rebecca: It's not that simple.

Nikolas: What's difficult about it?

[Rebecca scoffs]

Rebecca: I have responsibilities. I have a job, you know. I haven't been at GH that long, and I'm not going to have any vacation time, and you know, I'm not going to be able to--

Nikolas: Hey.

Rebecca: Hey!

Nikolas: Hey. You're stuck in the mindset of the way things used to be. Rebecca, your circumstances have changed dramatically, yes?

Rebecca: Yes.

Nikolas: You're as good as a Quartermaine. You're living in their house, accepted into their family,'re with me. Edward and I carry a lot of weight with the hospital board, you know.

Rebecca: Yeah. It must be nice for you.

[Rebecca chuckles]

Nikolas: Yeah, it has its moments. So, what do you say? You want to take a walk in my world or what? Come on.

Rebecca: Yeah.

Nikolas: Yeah?

Rebecca: Yeah. Nikolas...

Nikolas: Okay.

Rebecca: I'd love to go to Greece.

Nikolas: All right, great. I'll go get Spencer. He's actually here right now.

Rebecca: Okay.

Nikolas: It's time the two of you met, yeah?

Rebecca: Yeah. [Chuckles] Oh. [Sighs]

Johnny: I'd say the dirty work's already in progress. It's fairly obvious that these Zacchara people who are breaking away from Corinthos, they're taking orders from you.

Anthony: Obvious to whom? Everyone, or just you?

Johnny: You know, Sonny and Jason are a hell of a lot smarter than you give them credit for.

[Anthony laughs]

Anthony: All right. If all goes as planned, John-- and I have no reason to doubt it--my life's goal will be accomplished, and the empire I've built will be in the hands of its rightful heir--although, I'll be honest with you, John, I don't know why I should care anymore. You reject me, disrespect me. Your loyalty is constantly in question. And that's not right, John.

[Johnny chuckles]

Johnny: Sorry. But really? You're going to sit there in that pretty orange jumpsuit and pontificate to me about what's right?

Anthony: Just tell me straight. When this hostile takeover comes to pass, what side are you going to land on?

Johnny: Hmm. You know, I don't know. I've never really been that good at making plans. You'd know that if you knew me at all. See, I never really learned how to, because as a kid, I never knew how much time I had before you were going to jump psycho and try to have me killed.

Anthony: See? It's this kind of talk that disappoints me, John. It's not forward--

Johnny: It's the only way I know, because of you.

[Johnny sniffs and groans]

Johnny: But you don't have to worry about me, pop. I'm going to be okay. I do well thinking in the moment. Just as I did well in Corinthos' program, I may just do the same in yours. Whichever way the wind blows, right? That's where I'll be.

Johnny: See, power and control, they were never my drugs of choice. So I don't give a damn who wins this pointless war of yours. [Sighs] And I may be your son... [Scoffs] but I'm not a damn thing like you.

[Door shuts]

Carly: Okay. Bring me up to speed. Did you have it out with your son about dating Johnny?

Olivia: Oh, I've been talking myself blue in the face. A lot of good it does--the kid is more stubborn than me, if that's even possible.

Carly: Yeah, well, don't give up something that makes you happy. Don't be bullied into that.

Olivia: No, not a chance. Not a chance. It's just that it used to be so much easier, you know? You know, back when I could bluff him into thinking that I was perfect and I could do no wrong, and then, a funny thing happened.

Carly: Yeah. He grew up?

Olivia: Yes. Just all of a sudden started having opinions and questioning the choices I was making with my life. I just--I just wish sometimes I could turn that clock back, you know? Have that little guy who just loved me, accepted me, no matter what.

Carly: Yeah. I hear you.

Morgan: Come on. In here.

Carly: Hey! Where'd you find him?

Morgan: Don't be mad. I was in trouble. Dominic totally saved me.

Lucky: And that's Rebecca, according to Ethan. Now, I realize that he could be just making this up to cause trouble.

Elizabeth: No. Somehow, I doubt it. So let me get this straight. Rebecca knew all along that she was Emilyís twin sister before she ever showed up in Port Charles.

Lucky: Again, according to Ethan.

Elizabeth: Whom she met by chance in the airport.

Lucky: Uh-uh. At the bar, because the flight was delayed. Now, Rebecca told Ethan about the plan, and he said it needed time to be tweaked.

Elizabeth: So they took a 2-month detour to New York to refine it, where she can show up here, an innocent victim of circumstance, where she has no idea who Em was or any of us.

Lucky: That way, we come to her.

[Elizabeth sighs]

Lucky: You got to give my new brother credit. I mean, the scam worked. Dad would be proud.

Elizabeth: And Ethan actually said that after Rebecca successfully bilked Nikolas and the Quartermaines out of the appropriate amount of money, she had every intention of running off with him?

Lucky: Right.

Elizabeth: God. This is disaster. Poor Nikolas is going to be devastated.

Lucky: Exactly, which is what gives me pause. Is it our secret to tell?

Elizabeth: Are you suggesting we protect this conniving witch?

Lucky: No. It's why I'm asking. Does it really matter why Rebecca's with Nikolas? I mean, as long as he's happy...

[Nikolas sighs]

Nikolas: Spencer, I want you to meet someone who is very special to me. This is Rebecca Shaw.

Rebecca: Hi, Spencer. Hi.

Spencer: Hello.

Rebecca: Hi.

[Nikolas chuckles]

Rebecca: Oh.

Nikolas: Rebecca is going to come to Greece with us.

Rebecca: Yeah. Wow. I can't believe your family has a whole island in Greece all to yourselves. Um, I mean, I--I guess you probably have that here, too, right? But I'm assuming that the one in Greece is a lot bigger.

Nikolas: Yeah, quite a bit.

Rebecca: Yeah. Well, I hope you guys are going to show me around.

Nikolas: Of course we will. I want you and Spencer to have a chance to get to know each other.

Rebecca: Um... Spencer, um, I hope you don't mind if I'm a little shy at first, you know? Sometimes, it's hard for me to meet new people, and, um, you probably think I look like someone.

Spencer: Emily.

Rebecca: Yeah. Well, that's because I was her sister, and, um--your dad told me that you loved her very much. And I'm sure that you probably miss her. And so, I just wanted to tell you that I'm not trying to take her place, okay? I just--I just want the chance to be your friend.

[Nikolas chuckles]

Nikolas: Of course you'll be friends, right, Spence?

Spencer: Yeah.

Rebecca: Um, all right. Uh, why don't you go up to your playroom, maybe, and get some toys to take to Greece?

[Nikolas chuckles]

[Rebecca laughs]

Nikolas: Go ahead, son. Tell Norma I'll be--I'll be up to speak to her in a minute. [Sighs]

Rebecca: Wow.

Nikolas: I'm really sorry about that.

Rebecca: Oh, God. No, no. Please, Nikolas. I mean, guys his age are always shy, you know, when they meet strangers.

Nikolas: You've been in this house for months. You shouldn't be a stranger to him.

Rebecca: No, I understand why you waited.

Nikolas: It's just that--see, when I was seeing Nadine, she spent a lot of time with him. And then, we broke up, and overnight, she was just gone. Not gone like Emily, of course, but what difference does it make to him?

Rebecca: Right.

Nikolas: To him, it's just another person that disappeared out of his life. I couldn't take the risk of that happening with you. I had to wait.

Rebecca: Till you were sure about me?

Nikolas: Right. I hope that doesn't offend you.

Rebecca: Oh, no, Nikolas. I understand why you did that. I think it was very wise of you, and I just want you to know how much it means to me for you to introduce me to your son and, um, just to tell him that I'm special to you.

Nikolas: Well, you are.

[Rebecca chuckles]

Rebecca: Oh.

Carly: Do you two know each other?

Olivia: We met at Sonnyís.

Dominic: Yeah. How's it going?

Olivia: Fine.

Carly: Okay. Do you want to tell me how you helped get Morgan out of trouble?

Morgan: Don't worry. It wasn't about Dad's business or anything.

Carly: Okay, well, the last thing I knew, you were riding your bike in the neighborhood. What happened?

Morgan: I really went out to pick up the Yankee tickets I bought online. And I was coming back home through the docks, and then, Kristina's jerky boyfriend showed up and started pushing me around.

Carly: Kristina's boyfriend put his hands on you? What's his name?

Morgan: Kiefer. But that doesn't matter. That's what I'm trying to tell you. Dominic took care of it.

Carly: You want to pick up the narrative?

Dominic: Well, I just saw some teenager trying to intimidate a little kid, so I put a stop to it.

Olivia: What'd you do, break his kneecaps?

Dominic: No. I just gave him a scare, threw him up against the wall, held him there while Morgan reminded the punk who his father was.

Morgan: Then Dominic gave me a ride home.

Carly: Thank you. I owe you.

Dominic: Happy to do it.

Carly: Protecting Morgan from a bully is a far cry from threatening to take him hostage, isn't it?

Olivia: Excuse me, what?

Carly: Oh, Dominic held me, Michael, and Morgan at gunpoint one interesting night in the woods. Clearly, he didn't kill us. He let us go. And somehow, Dominic managed to parlay that into a job with Sonny.

Dominic: Okay, then. I should go. Make sure you cheer hard for those Yankees, okay, buddy?

Morgan: I will

Dominic: All right.

Morgan: Thanks, Dominic.

Dominic: No problem.

Olivia: Well. You are really one cool customer, being civil to that guy after what he did to you and your boys.

Carly: Oh. I mean, I would never tell him to his face, but I think that Dominic guy is--I think he's pretty decent. And after him helping Morgan now, he's earned a few more notches in my book. [Sighs]

Johnny: Hey. Thanks for meeting me.

Spinelli: Yes. Your request intrigued me. But, um, before we proceed, I'd like to preempt a possible direction this meeting could take--nip it in the bud, so to speak. [Sniffs] Maximista and I are now officially engaged and are in the initial stages of planning a wedding. So it is far too late for any vespidial objections.

Johnny: Hey, this vespid was the first one to congratulate you, remember?

Spinelli: Yes, but who knows if those words were sincere? Perhaps it was a stalling tactic to buy more time to steal Maximista's heart.

Johnny: Listen to me, Spinelli. I do not want to steal Maxie's heart. That's certainly not why I assumed you'd be here.

[Spinelli exhales]

Spinelli: Okay, then why?

Johnny: I want you to help me take down my father once and for all.

Patrick: Whoa. By the look on your face, I can guess that the mother-daughter detective team was a success.

Robin: Our student was brilliant.

Patrick: Yeah? Where is our brilliant student?

Robin: She's with Judy, taking a very well-earned nap.

Patrick: Okay. So, tell me. How'd it go?

Robin: Okay. Just as I predicted, Emma was so cute that we reeled in one of Mayor Floydís housekeepers. Mm-hmm. Apparently, the Floyd household isn't the happiest place on earth.

Patrick: Well, that's not surprising. Spouses fight when adultery rears its ugly head.

Robin: Right. Just as I thought, Andrea knew about the affair. Floyd had asked her for a divorce, and according to the housekeeper, Andrea said, and I quote, she would rather have him ruined or dead before she'd let him go.

Patrick: Wow. Emma did an incredible job. Did she happen to get the housekeeper to admit that she secretly videotaped the fights, or maybe promised to, you know, testify, maybe, or something--

Robin: You know what? Don't rub it in, all right? I am well aware that this does not constitute the proof I need.

Patrick: Not yet, anyway.

Robin: What? [Laughs] Do my ears deceive me? Was that actually a sound of encouragement?

Patrick: I'm just teasing you. You're doing a great job. Keep it up.

[Telephone rings]

Elizabeth: Maybe I'm not the person you should ask about what to do with Rebecca's secrets.

Lucky: I am--what would you do?

Elizabeth: I don't know.

Lucky: Okay, come on. You've basically hated Rebecca since you saw her. I know that your first impulse, after I told you, was to go over to Wyndemere and blow her out of the water.

Elizabeth: Well, yeah, 'cause I don't trust her. I don't even like her. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but really, who are we to say that Rebecca's original intentions are more valid than the ones she has now? And what about Ethanís intentions? Why would he expose her, unless it's because she has genuinely fallen for Nikolas, and he's jealous?

Lucky: Okay. So you can accept that Rebecca's changed?

Elizabeth: It's possible. I mean, Nikolas is a great guy. It's not hard to believe she fell in love without meaning to. And if not, if she's still planning on scamming him, well, maybe that's exactly what needs to happen. Maybe that's the only way to break the hold she has over him.

Nikolas: Okay. So what if you were Nikolas? Would you want to know?

Elizabeth: Absolutely.

Spinelli: I'm sorry. I'm confused. Why would you believe that your father, the former kingpin of crime, would still be a threat? Is he not serving multiple life sentences in the big house?

Johnny: Yeah, where he's consolidating power, making inroads. There's an entire Zacchara faction working against Sonny Corinthos right now as we speak. I want to stop that uprising before it gains any more traction.

Spinelli: Have you contemplated and accepted the fact that this course of action would require you to take a permanent stance on the side of Mr. Sir and Stone Cold and, therefore, pitting yourself against your own flesh and blood?

Johnny: Yeah. I spent my entire life living under my father's thumb, adjusting to his whims, looking over my shoulder for the knife that he might stab me in the back with at any given moment without notice. [Sighs] These last 2 years, they've been the only taste of freedom I've ever had. I'm not about to go back to my father's evil ways. I'm not. But he's not going to like that. He's going to do everything in his power to get me back, including using the people I care about most to manipulate me.

Spinelli: Well, how can I help?

Johnny: Well, I want you to hack into the prison network, find a way to disappear my father. Get him transferred out of state or, even better, put him in solitary till he rots.

Dominic: Whoa. When you say 2 minutes, you really mean 2 minutes.

Olivia: Don't cute with me, Tony Dante, 'cause you got a lot to answer for.

Dominic: What, does this mean you're not going to help me--

Olivia: You ought to be ashamed of yourself.

Dominic: I separated the whites.

Olivia: I raised you to know the difference between right and wrong, okay? You're supposed to be a cop, for God's sake. Now, I find out that you terrorized a pregnant woman and her 2 children at gunpoint?

Dominic: Ow!

Olivia: What the hell is wrong with you?

Dominic: Would you calm down? For God's sake, ma, Carly and her kids were never in any danger from me. Okay? I just wanted to get away from them so I couldn't be IDíd. When I realized who they were, I decided to find a way to use it to my advantage.

Olivia: Nice. Nice. All in a day's work.

Dominic: Exactly. And you can't argue with results. Carly vouched for me with Sonny.

Olivia: Oh. Good. I'm thrilled-- I'm really thrilled for you. For me, not so much. You want to know why? 'Cause you just added Carly to the growing list of people that I am betraying now by knowing the truth--that you're an undercover cop that's here to take them all down.

[Dominic sighs]

Robin: Here you go.

Patrick: Oh, thank you.

Robin: Okay. If there was enough evidence to convict Andrea for murder, the housekeeper wouldn't have to come forth voluntarily, and we'd subpoena her.

Patrick: "We" as in me and you, or you in conjunction with the PCPD?

Robin: How about whatever works?

Patrick: Uh-oh. Andrea's in trouble. I can tell.

Robin: How?

Patrick: The look of determination in your eye. Gathering evidence is going to be the tricky part. Convincing Matt that you have enough to arrest the mayor's wife...

Robin: That's why this case has to be airtight. All the dots have to connect. You care to accompany me to the scene of the crime?

Olivia: We're in a Laundromat. You want a laundry list of all the ways that I'm compromising us both right now?

Dominic: Not particularly.

Olivia: Okay. First of all, there's Johnny.

Dominic: Okay. Can we please not go there?

Olivia: I realize that the fact that him being in my life is disturbing to you, but he's there anyway. And you know what? Johnny is good to me, and I haven't allowed myself to have that in my life in a really long time. And now, you 2 are all partnered up. He has no idea that you're an undercover cop.

Dominic: You know, I don't care if Johnny buys you roses or not. He's a gangster. He made that choice, accepted any potential consequences.

Olivia: You want to talk about consequences? How about little Morgan Corinthos, huh? He's a trusting little boy. You think it's not going to break his heart when he finds out that his new best friend Dominic's sole mission in life is really to put his father in prison? Right? Okay. We've got Johnny, Carly, Michael, Morgan--all casualties of this investigation.

Dominic: Look, Ma... I'm sorry I put you in this position--a terrible position, possibly even dangerous. But I hate it. The solution is not for me to drop my investigation. It's for you to go back to Bensonhurst, where you don't have to be compromising yourself about lying to people all the time.

Nikolas: Yes. I don't have the flight information yet, but I'm expecting to land in Athens sometime tomorrow afternoon. Yeah. I'll email you the info as soon as I have it. Thanks. Thanks, Dmitri. Bye. Hey. I didn't expect to see you.

Lucky: Sounds like you're taking a trip.

Nikolas: I am, which is why I'm kind of rushed.

Lucky: Yeah? Where?

Nikolas: Greece. You know what? For the first time since I can't even remember, I'm actually looking forward to visiting home.

Lucky: Is it business?

Nikolas: No. I'm taking Rebecca and Spencer. I want her to see where I grew up and give them a chance to get to know each other.

Lucky: Hey, Nikolas--

Nikolas: I'm sorry, Lucky. I'm trying to get the flight for this evening, so I don't really have a lot of time--

Lucky: Okay. All right. Then I won't sugar-coat it. Rebecca's been lying to you since the first day she showed up.

[Knock on door]

Olivia: What now? Hey. Aren't you just what the doctor ordered. Mmm. Mmm.

Johnny: What was that for?

Olivia: Oh, it was for being the only person in the world that is not on my last nerve right now.

Johnny: Does that include Dominic?

Olivia: Dominic?

Johnny: Yeah. I saw you 2 at the Laundromat having what appeared to be a pretty intense conversation. Want to share what that was about?

Carly: You're back already?

Morgan: Uh, I invited him to the game.

Carly: I don't remember Dominic being on the list of candidates we discussed.

Morgan: Well, I thought about him at the last minute.

Dominic: Hey, kid, you mind getting me a glass of water? I'm thirsty.

Morgan: Uh, sure. Mom, you want anything to drink?

Carly: No, I'm good. I'm good. Thanks.

Dominic: Look, I know you have major reservations about me taking Morgan anywhere. I'm no one a mother wants her impressionable kid hanging out with. It's just... he reminds me of me. He seems like a lonely kid who carries a weight on his shoulders, and I didn't know how to say no, but I will, if that's what you want.


Morgan: I know I should have asked before I called Dominic, but I was worried 'cause I was running out of time, and I couldn't think of anyone else to ask. I really want to go, Mom. Ooh, the guy I bought them from said they were really good seats. Can you tell?

Dominic: All right. Let me see. Okay. 2, section--actually these are pretty good seats, buddy. [Laughs]

Elizabeth: Why did you need to see me?

Rebecca: Nikolas introduced me to his son today. The 3 of us are going to Greece.

Elizabeth: Oh. Why the need to share it with me?

Rebecca: Look, Elizabeth, I get that you don't like me. And frankly, under different circumstances, I really wouldn't care. But Nikolas loves you like family. So this is me making an effort at peace. You think there's any chance we could be friends or, you know, just a little more friendly for Nikolas' sake?

Elizabeth: Well, I suppose that depends on whether you're going to tell me the truth or not. What does meeting Nikolas' son and taking a pseudo-family vacation together mean? Are you just curious? Did you get the sudden urge to visit Greece? Or are we talking about something more?

Rebecca: Well, if you're asking how I feel about him, I think I'm in love with him.

Nikolas: What do you mean exactly? She's been lying?

Lucky: I get no pleasure out of telling you this.

Nikolas: Well, so far, you haven't told me anything.

Lucky: Rebecca, she's been working a scam with Ethan this whole time. She knew she was Emilyís twin when she showed up. The whole plan was to get as much money out of you and the Quartermaines as possible, then skip town with Ethan.

Nikolas: And you know this how?

Lucky: Ethan told me.

[Nikolas sighs]

Nikolas: Since when did you start listening to him?

Lucky: I didn't--not right away. I...I questioned it. I thought about it. It seems that Ethan and Rebecca have had some sense of parting of the ways, and he has no reason to protect her anymore. I don't know, Nikolas. It just rings true to me.

Nikolas: So... everything that's happened between Rebecca and me... is a lie.
