Nikolas: Yeah, Lucky told me that the two of you are getting married. Again.

Elizabeth: That's right.

Nikolas: And you accepted after we'd just been together?

Elizabeth: I couldn't say no.

Nikolas: Really? How could you do that to him? To yourself?

Maxie: Oh! I'm having a panic attack and I can't breathe.

Robin: Okay. Okay. Breathe. Calm down. Listen. Everything is going to be fine. You organized my entire wedding, and I'm going to help you with yours. The floral arrangements are being picked out. The cake is picked out. The reception's being organized. All you have to do is figure out where the ceremony's going to be. And no pressure, but you should probably figure out that pretty quickly because we might be having it in Jake's parking lot.

Maxie: Oh, okay. Thank you for your help. I'm sure this will be the most tasteful, elegant mistake of my life.

Robin: Maxie? Come here. Listen. Everyone has wedding jitters.

Maxie: No, Robin, this is--this is a little more than jitters. Spinelli could have died last night. I could just as easily be planning his funeral, kicking myself that I didn't elope with him the second he proposed.

Robin: Then what's the problem?

Maxie: I love him, and he loves me, but I thought I had worked past all my concerns and was ready to sprint to the altar. And then, Spinelli mentioned the daughter he hopes to have one day, and I felt locked right back in that little box trying to get some air.

Robin: So Spinelli wants kids.

Maxie: That's what he says. I just want to go on loving Spinelli the way we do now. Why does he keep trying to ruin everything?

Robin: Why do you keep letting him?

Spinelli: It is conventional wisdom that you have an aversion to wedded bliss, but until this moment, it never occurred to me that that aversion could apply to my situation.

Jason: Well, no. Only you know how you feel for Maxie. I'm not going to sit here and judge you guys.

Spinelli: As best man, one would expect you to have some sort of vested interest.

Jason: If you want to be married to Maxie, I genuinely wish you guys both the best.

Spinelli: Are you sure that's how you feel?

Sonny: What I'm trying to say to you is, I don't think Johnny is going to be happy to see--

Claudia: Wait a second. Listen to me, okay? Johnny would never throw me out of his room if he wasn't overly medicated, if he wasn't just coming off anesthesia, hopped up full of painkillers.

Sonny: All right. You know what? I just hate to see you get hurt again, you know?

Claudia: Thank you for caring, Sonny. That means a lot to me.

Michael: Look, I know what I heard. Jax confessed to me while I was in the coma. He said he was sorry.

Sam: A lot of people were sorry about what happened to you.

Michael: Yeah, but he said that my mom would never forgive him if she found out. So maybe that adds up to Jax trying to kill my father. And if he did it once, what makes you think he won't try it again? 

Elizabeth: Lucky loves me. He wants to raise Cameron and Jake and spend the rest of our lives together.

Nikolas: I understand that. But what do you want?

Elizabeth: Not to hurt him again.

Nikolas: Liz, if you're going to marry him because you feel guilty over being with me, honestly, what are the chances that it can ever work between the two of you?

Elizabeth: We don't speak about that night. It never happened.

Nikolas: Oh. Well, I know you, and I know that you're just trying to do the right thing, but you cannot marry him carrying this secret around with you. It's the same kind of lie that tore the two of you apart the last time.

Elizabeth: Lucky deserves to be happy. He wants this. And I'm going to make it happen.


Lucky: Hey. So it's not so easy to keep a secret around here.

Maxie: I love Spinelli. I'm sure of that. But I'm still freaking out.

Robin: Okay. If you could have anything you want right now, what would that be?

Maxie: Spinelli. I mean, he's the man that I want to be with. It's just, getting married--not the wedding. The ceremony I can totally handle. But the actual being married part? Well, when I think about it, it makes me want to go lay on a beach on the other side of the planet by myself.

Robin: That's not good.

Maxie: I know that. Um, do you think I'm awful?

Robin: Oh, hello. I mean, I was the one that said "no" to Patrick a hundred times.

Maxie: That's totally different because Patrick was willing to stick with you whether or not you guys got married.

Robin: And you don't think Spinelli would?

Maxie: I can't risk that. I mean, Spinelli's all about eternal vows and courtly love. If I bail on him, it could be a huge mistake.

Robin: Okay. Marrying Spinelli, or anyone, when you're not sure, is not the answer.

Maxie: Robin, look at me. I've made a lifetime of bad decisions. And I'm thinking it's probably about time I get something right, so I will marry Spinelli, even if I break out in hives. But you have to be there to help me.

Spinelli: Understandably, with the overabundance of danger and intrigue over the last few days, you've been...less than attentive to your responsibilities as best man.

Jason: Wait, hold on. You really haven't asked me to do anything yet, right?

Spinelli: I'm all too aware that the list of duties contains many things that you might have antipathy for, and I mean, among them, any participation in pre-wedding festivities, the ritual of a bachelor party. I mean, has Stone Cold even given any thought to who could or should lead the chicken dance?

Jason: I'm not going to answer that question.

Spinelli: Okay. Which limits the duties of best man to what, a bastion of moral support, bearer of the wedding rings, the witness of record at the ceremony? Recent events have given the Jackal pause vis--vis the mob prince's heroism without which I would be a perforated corpse. And indeed, John Zacchara has proven to be a true friend. So... if you--if this is too much for you--

Jason: No, no--

Spinelli: If you don't want to do it--

Jason: If you want Johnny to be your best man, that's okay. I mean, that works.

[Spinelli sighs]

Jax: Didn't realize you were coming over.

Sam: I didn't, either.

Carly: Hi. I didn't know we had company.

Sam: Hi.

Michael: Why is it such a big deal? Sam just came to see me.

Sam: No. Actually, I just--I wanted to make sure everyone was okay after yesterday's shooting. You couldn't be more careful--

Carly: What shooting?

Sam: Um...I--I thought you knew. I'm sorry. I guess Sonny didn't want to alarm you.

Jax: Has there been trouble with Sonny's business?

Sam: No. No. There is nothing to worry about. You know me. I just get overly cautious.

Jax: No, no, no. If Sonny's putting my family in danger again, I need to know about it.

Michael: Why do you always assume the worst?

Carly: Okay. Excuse me, Michael, but I agree with Jax. I want to know what's going on.

Sam: I am sure Sonny or Jason will contact you if it's necessary.

Jax: Okay, no. You open that door, Sam, you may as well walk through it. Now, what kind of trouble is Sonny in?

Claudia: You can leave now.

Olivia: It's not going to happen.

Claudia: I want you gone.

Olivia: Yeah? Well, what matters right now is what Johnny wants, and he made it very clear that he wants me to stay, and he wants you to get the hell out.

Claudia: My brother was too drugged to even know what he was saying, Olivia.

[Olivia sighs]

Johnny: I'll say it again, then, so there's no mistake. Please leave, Claudia.

Claudia: I can't believe you'd say that to me.

Olivia: Your brother is lying in intensive care. Could you just let your drama wait until he's strong enough to handle it?

Sonny: You're the one who should probably leave, Olivia.

Johnny: Sonny, let's not pretend that you're trying to protect Claudia here.

Sonny: No, I--

Johnny: You don't want Olivia here with me.

Sonny: I just got business to discuss, and it can't wait. And she's already made it clear to me that she doesn't want any part of the mob. So you may want to leave before, you know, you hear something you don't want to hear.

Olivia: Sonny, he is not strong enough to discuss business with you right now.

Johnny: No, it's okay. The sooner he says what he came here to say, the sooner both of them can leave.

Olivia: Are you sure?

Johnny: Promise me you'll come back, huh?

Olivia: Okay.

Spinelli: Rest assured, I have but one mentor, and though the mob prince's rescue was spectacular, it pales in comparison to the many times that you've saved my life.

Jason: You don't really have to explain to me. I think Johnny will be a great best man, and he did just save your life, okay?

Spinelli: I'm touched by Stone Cold's nobility and sacrifice, which proves to me what I already know--that you are my truest friend. And with all gratitude to the mob prince, it is clear that--

Jason: I'm just saying I really don't mind if--

Spinelli: Well, I do mind. This discussion has confirmed to me that I made the right choice in you.

Jason: Thank you.

Spinelli: You know, most are unaware of the fact that, in the earliest tradition of marriage, the function of the best man was to be the groom's other self. So in that sense, had Anthony Zacchara's minions been successful in taking my life on the way to the church, Stone Cold would have to stand in my place and marry my bride.

Maxie: So what's your opinion about Spinelli and me getting married?

Robin: You honestly want to know?

Maxie: Mm-hmm.

Robin: Okay. I think Spinelli is the best thing that's ever happened to you, especially compared to the other guys you've been with. He gives you confidence. He makes you happy. I mean, spending the rest of your life with Spinelli would be a wonderful thing. But that doesn't mean you have to get married right now. You both are so young. You have so much time. I guess I just don't understand why you can't be together and be in love.

Maxie: But if we're going to be together and be in love, why shouldn't we just get married anyway?

Robin: Because you're not sure.

Maxie: What if I'm wrong?

Robin: I think you should trust your instincts on this one. Something is telling you to put the brakes on. Listen to yourself. You'll know when the time is right to get married.

Maxie: Well, wait. How did you know when the time was right? Like, what changed your mind about Patrick?

Robin: Well, there was a day when I realized I trusted Patrick completely, and all of my doubts disappeared.

Maxie: Well, then, that's my answer. I mean, I already trust Spinelli completely. I just wish he hadn't started talking about having kids so soon. Not that that's a bad thing, but you were just a little older than me when you had Emma.

Robin: Okay. But you need to be honest with Spinelli about the whole kids thing.

Maxie: Oh, no, don't worry. If Spinelli wants to start a family early, I'll just start taking the pill.

Robin: Oh, Maxie. If you can't talk to your future husband about these things, you should have doubts.

Maxie: Do you know how hurt Spinelli would be if he thought that I didn't want to have a child with him? I'll just start taking birth control and tell him that I have fertility issues or something.

Robin: Maxie, I don't think that--

Maxie: Problem solved. Thank you so much, Robin!

Lucky: I wanted to share the good news, so I told Nikolas and Rebecca about our plans. I hope you don't mind, do you?

Elizabeth: No. Of course not. Rebecca?

Nikolas: Yeah. Yeah. She was at the house this morning when Lucky showed up.

Lucky: Yeah. And I couldn't exactly ask her to leave. You know, to be honest, she seemed really happy for us.

Elizabeth: We need to go. We have marriage counseling.

Nikolas: Oh. Well, that's good. Good for you. That's great.

Lucky: Yeah. We are committed to doing whatever it takes to make it last this time.

Elizabeth: See, I don't want to make the same mistakes over and over again.

Nikolas: I understand. I should probably try that sometime, right?

Lucky: [Chuckles] Come on.

Nikolas: Bye.

[Nikolas sighs]

[Indistinct chatter on TV]

Dominic: Oh, man. Lifesaver. I was just looking for the score.

Morgan: Uh, the game hasn't started yet.

Dominic: Well, you look like you're all set.

Morgan: Brought the helmet for you.

Dominic: What? No, you didn't.

Morgan: Maybe you don't remember--you're pretty messed up--but I tried to give it to you in the E.R. after you saved me.

Dominic: Yes, as a token of your appreciation. I'm honored. But you know what? This looks a lot better on you than it does on me.

Morgan: So did they tell you when you can get out?

Dominic: Not soon enough.

Morgan: How would you like to come live at our house until you can take care of yourself?

Dominic: Well, Morgan, you know what? That's really generous of you, man, but I'm sure your parents wouldn't be too cool with that.

Morgan: I already asked my mom and Jax, and they said they'd think about it.

Dominic: Oh. You're a bright kid. I'm sure you've already figured out that's just a gentler way of them saying "no" to you.

Morgan: It could be fun. I mean, we could watch the playoffs together. Do you play video games? I could show you "Universe of Doom." Michael and I used to play, and I was getting really good, but ever since he came back from Mexico, he doesn't have the time. If you did come to our house, I could show you how to play through every level.

[Dominic laughs]

Jax: We're going to find out what's going on sooner or later, so you may as well tell us.

Carly: Jax is right. If something's going on with Sonny, we need to know about it.

Sam: All right. Listen. All I know is what Jason told me. Apparently, a couple of the Corinthos properties went under attack. Johnny and Spinelli were in the line of fire. Johnny pulled Spinelli out, he got shot, and he's at Mercy recovering.

Carly: Michael, I want you to go upstairs, okay? I don't think you need to hear this.

Michael: Why? Because I got shot? I'm fine.

Jax: No, because your father's under attack again and didn't bother to tell us about it so we could protect you.

Carly: I know it's upsetting, but if there were real danger, Jason would call me.

Sam: Yeah. Listen, you guys. I am sorry. I should never have said anything--

Jax: No, don't be sorry. If my family's in trouble, I want to know about it.

Sam: Fair enough. Okay. I'll be in touch.

[Jax sighs]

Jax: I'll be in my office. I got to make some calls.

Michael: You know what?

Carly: Mmm?

Michael: Jax does a really great job of covering it up, but he hates Dad's guts, and you know it.

Lainey: I just want to be sure you're comfortable with me as your therapist.

Elizabeth: Oh, because I've done tequila shots with you? [Chuckles] Yes, we've discussed it.

Lucky: And you know us both and our situation.

Elizabeth: We were just hoping that maybe you can help us figure out where we went wrong in the past so we don't go there again.

Lucky: Because we want to do it right this time. We know loving each other sometimes just isn't enough.

Lainey: Digging up past mistakes can be painful. Are you ready for that?

Elizabeth: We're ready to work through the issues that drove us apart.

Lucky: It started with my addiction and getting involved with Maxie. You know, I thought my life was messed up. Just couldn't face Elizabeth's disappointment. Maxie, she didn't judge me.

Elizabeth: And I felt incredibly let down by what he was doing. Actually, betrayed is more accurate.

Lainey: You sound a little resentful. Are you saying you could never lie or cheat in a relationship?

[Olivia scoffs]

Olivia: Is that yours? You used to have one exactly like that about a thousand years ago.

Dominic: This is Morgan's. He lent it to me for good luck.

Olivia: Ohh. I remember you wore that thing, when you were about 11, every single day for a year. That thing was so big, it came down over your eyes. You couldn't even see the ball to swing. But you didn't care. You wouldn't take it off.

Dominic: That was before my head got so swollen.

Olivia: You were so cute going off to those Yankees games with Sal and Vito.

Dominic: You know what? I was just thinking about those games when I was talking with Morgan about that new stadium.

Olivia: You know, I don't think it's a very good idea, you getting so tight with him like that.

Dominic: Well, then you're definitely not going to like the fact that he's invited me to go live at their house when I get out of here.

Olivia: What did Carly and Jax have to say about that?

Dominic: They said "we'll see," which, whenever you said that, I knew it was a no.

Olivia: Well, good. They should say no. You shouldn't be living there. I mean, that Morgan, he's a great little kid. He already thinks that you hung the moon.

Dominic: You know, I just don't want to see Morgan get hurt.

Olivia: Well, how do you think he's going to feel when he finds out that you're using him to--

Dominic: Look, I'm not, I swear to you. I think the whole situation is sad. His brother goes into a coma for a year. He wakes up and has all these expectations. Then all of a sudden, he doesn't even spend any time with him. The kid is looking for an older brother.

Olivia: Yes, I see that, and I understand why he would pick you. But... Morgan doesn't know that you're an undercover cop who's trying to put his dad in jail.

Nurse: Use this, if you need it.

Johnny: Thank you.

Nurse: Patient needs his rest.

Johnny: Thought I asked you to leave.

Claudia: Johnny, what is wrong with you? Why are you being so mean? I'm just trying to help you.

Johnny: I don't want anything from you, Claudia.

Claudia: Shouldn't you be mad at Daddy? I mean, really, you know, he's the one who put you in this bed, not me.

Johnny: Yeah. But accidents happen, don't they? Dad didn't intend for me to be shot. He didn't know that I was going to be in the warehouse, did he? He just did what he did, and damn the consequences, right?

Claudia: I don't believe you're not furious with him.

Johnny: I am too tired, Claudia, for him, for you. You know, when I asked you to leave, I meant it.

Claudia: You know, when I heard you got shot, I thought I was going to die. I couldn't breathe. That's how much I love you, Johnny. And I deserve better than you're giving me.

Sonny: You just threw out the one person who's 100% loyal to you.

Johnny: What was so important that it couldn't wait, Sonny?

Sonny: Maybe you're not the hero that you make yourself out to be.

Johnny: Maybe I never claimed to be a hero.

Sonny: Maybe you helped Anthony arrange the attack.

[Johnny scoffs]

Johnny: Right. I planned an ambush and ran right into it. I'm not suicidal.

Sonny: Could be you lost your nerve and took Dominic's place at the last minute to shut it down. You got caught in the crossfire. Which would mean... pretty much got what you deserved.

Carly: Michael...

[Michael sighs]

Michael: What?

Carly: What's going on? Why are you so angry with Jax? He loves you. He loves all of us.

Michael: But he hates Dad.

Carly: No, he doesn't hate anybody. Jax isn't wired that way.

Michael: Fine. He loathes him. He despises him. Whatever.

Carly: Why is Jax now the focus of your anger?

Michael: 'Cause I don't like anyone attacking my dad.

Carly: I get that. You know, we have tried to protect you from the ugliness. We have. A lot of people Jax cares about have been hurt because of your father's business, including yourself. And if the roles were reversed, you can bet that Sonny would never be as tolerant as Jax.

Michael: Maybe Dad's just a little bit more honest about it. How far do you think Jax would go to get Dad out of our lives? 

Elizabeth: Lucky wasn't the only one who cheated in our marriage. You know I had an affair with Jason.

Lucky: Because I was sleeping with Maxie.

Elizabeth: Yeah, but you wanted to make amends. You wanted to start over. And I wasn't honest.

Lainey: So Lucky, what was the worst part of finding out Elizabeth cheated on you?

Lucky: Being lied to, not just about the affair.

Elizabeth: Uh. Ahh. Well, it turns out that Jason is Jake's biological father.

Lainey: Oh. I see.

Elizabeth: Yeah. I lied a lot to a lot of people, and I just don't want to hurt each other anymore.

Lainey: Is it over with Jason?

Elizabeth: Yeah. Yeah. And he agreed to let Lucky raise Jake as his own.

Lainey: Is that what you want, Lucky?

Lucky: Absolutely. Elizabeth and I want the same things, and I love Elizabeth. And I love being a father to those boys. I just want to give Elizabeth the happiness and security she deserves, something I didn't give her in the past.

Lainey: What makes this time different?

Lucky: 'Cause I'm prepared to do the work. I'm stronger. I'm active in my 12-step program. And I know what matters. I didn't have a lot of security in my life when I was a kid. My father, he was my hero, and I loved my mother, but the last thing we'd probably call him is reliable.

Elizabeth: And you're nothing like your dad.

Lucky: But I still judge myself.

Lainey: Is it possible you need Elizabeth to validate you?

Lucky: Now? Maybe in the past,, we trust each other. We rely on each other.

Lainey: You guys are doing great. The commitment you have to making it work puts you so far ahead of the game. Same time next week?

Elizabeth: Sounds good.

Lucky: All right.

Lainey: Good to see you.

Elizabeth: Thank you.

Lucky: Thanks.

Lainey: Bye.

Elizabeth: Ohh.

Lucky: Wow. You okay?

Elizabeth: Yeah. I'm great. You?

Lucky: Great. I think you were right to suggest counseling. I think it's exactly what we need. If we're ever going to have a marriage that lasts, we need to continue to stay open and honest with each other.

[Knock on door]

Johnny: Sonny already left.

Jason: I just got some questions about the attack on the warehouse.

Johnny: Hmm. That's refreshing. You're the first person who's shown up here who hasn't asked how I'm feeling.

Jason: I've been shot enough to know how you feel. I mean, you're so pumped up on this pain medication, you can't think, or if you refuse the medication, all you can think about is the pain. So if you can, I need to know what you remember about the attack on the warehouse.

Johnny: I'll tell you the same thing I told Sonny, Jason. I had nothing to do with it.

Jason: Yeah, Johnny, look, I know that.

Johnny: Good.

Jason: I understand that. But you have insight into Anthony. I mean, what do you think his next move can be? Do you think he's going to come back and attack the Corinthos family again?

Johnny: You need to assume the absolute worst. Lot of innocent people could end up as collateral damage.

Olivia: You know, you could have gotten yourself killed yesterday, and I'm not talking about the carnival, either. That shoot-up at the warehouse with Anthony Zacchara's people, that was supposed to be you in there.

Dominic: All right. What can I say? I'm the luckiest man alive, alive being the operative--

Olivia: Why don't you tell that to Johnny, hmm?

[Dominic sighs]

Olivia: I sat by his bedside all night, and it broke my heart to watch him suffer like that.

Dominic: Please, Ma. I'm in a delicate condition here. I really don't want to hear about your big romance.

Olivia: You and Johnny switched places at the last minute. What if you were supposed to be the intended target for that?

Dominic: That's a lot of maybes to hang your hat on.

Olivia: Okay. Okay. How about this? Maybe--maybe the Zacchara people think that you're a traitor now that you're working for Sonny? Or what if they found out that you were a cop?

Dominic: Well, if that was the case, Ma, I'd already be dead.

Olivia: Okay. But now, you're vulnerable. You're hurt. Now you've got a reason. You could call your lieutenant. You could call Ron. You could get yourself pulled out of this.

Dominic: There really is no reasoning with you when you're scared, Ma, is there? I don't stop until the Corinthos and the Zaccharas are behind bars.

Sam: I am so sorry. I had to come up with some excuse. I hope I didn't open up a can of worms.

Michael: Well, at least you got to see how Jax is about my father. He blames Dad for everything.

Sam: Yeah, but Jax and Sonny have a lot of history. Maybe Jax has his reasons.

[Michael scoffs]

Michael: You sound like my mother. Everybody's so worried about defending Jax that they don't want to look at what he might have done to get rid of my father.

Sam: You're basing this all on a memory that you think you might have had while you were in a coma.

Michael: No, I remember, Jax was all sorts of sorry. It's not hard to believe that he would try to get rid of my father, especially if he convinced himself that it was for my mom or for Morgan and me.

Sam: I'm sorry. I know Jax. He's a corporate raider. He's not a murderer.

Michael: Yeah, but his brother is, and he said that he should have known better than to trust Jerry.

Sam: Okay. But listen, this is a very far leap from having your stepfather at your bedside saying he's sorry, and that being your memory, to now accusing him of assassinating, or trying to assassinate, your father.

Michael: Okay. Well, you know what else he said? That if my Mom found out, she'd never forgive him. How do you explain that? Look. If he had anything to do with this, I need to know.

Sam: Okay. Then what do you do?

Michael: I don't know. Do you have any idea how hard it is to stay at home and try to pretend that everything's okay, to sit down for breakfast together, to watch him and my mom get ready for this new baby? I mean, I'm supposed to go to his office today. I can't even believe the guy.

Sam: No, no. Okay. Okay. But you cannot say anything to Jax. Not anybody. Not yet.

Michael: Then prove it wasn't him.

Sam: Oh, my God. Michael, you know what? A lot of people have been trying to figure out what happened, especially Jason. Jax's name never came up. Ever. [Sighs] All right. Listen. I can't make any promises, but I will definitely see what I can do. Okay?

Michael: That's all I'm asking.

Sam: All right.

[Michael sighs]

Sonny: What's so urgent, you couldn't wait?

Carly: Your warehouses were attacked yesterday. Johnny Zacchara's in the hospital. Spinelli could have been killed. And you didn't think that was worth mentioning?

Sonny: Well, you make it sound worse than it is.

Carly: Anthony Zacchara is on the warpath. My kids could be a target. What the hell is wrong with you?

Sonny: Hey, you need to calm down, Carly.

Carly: Okay. You know what? I'll calm down when you tell me if my kids are in danger. And if they are, I want you to tell me what you're going to do to protect them.

Spinelli: What fortuitous timing. I was just reviewing possible venues for our pending nuptials. We need to lock in a location post-haste.

Maxie: Okay. I was about to say the same thing. It's like you read my mind.

Spinelli: Well, that is most gratifying to hear.

Maxie: I just can't bear the thought of being without you. And when I think about how you almost died...I know I want to spend the rest of my life with you.

Spinelli: Well, now who's reading whose mind? That is most certainly my fondest wish.

Maxie: So we might hit a few bumps along the way. But I think we can handle anything.

Sonny: Sit down and breathe for a second.

Carly: Oh, do not do that. Do not--

Sonny: If you get upset, you could die, and I need you to live.

Carly: Oh, Sonny, don't patronize me, okay? Don't do that, because if I mean so much to you, then you would tell me--

Sonny: Why do you make everything so difficult? Can't you just enjoy your pregnancy, that you're going to have a beautiful little daughter?

Carly: No. No. You know why? I can't enjoy anything when I think there's going to be rival gangsters busting in here with their guns a-blazing.

Sonny: I've taken appropriate action. The kids will be protected.

Carly: What are you doing?

Sonny: Sit down. Sit down. That's all I can tell you 'cause I'm not going to give you mob updates. You need to stay calm, and you need to stay relaxed.

Carly: I'll be calm if I know my kids are safe.

Sonny: Do you want me to put a guard to camp out at your front door? Would you like that?

Carly: Maybe.

Sonny: Okay.

Carly: You know that Morgan asked Dominic to move in here while he was recuperating?

Sonny: That's the first I've heard of that.

Carly: Yeah. I wasn't crazy about the idea, but now, I should rethink it. Dominic staying here could solve a lot of problems. He could keep Morgan safe and entertain him.

Ronnie: When you're ready for your sponge bath, let me know. There's a really hot nurse at the desk.

Dominic: Ha! My nurse's name is Larry. I think I'll take a pass on that.

Ronnie: So, how grateful is Corinthos that you saved his son?

Dominic: Eh, grateful enough.

Ronnie: The king of understatement. Oh, we know how these guys are with their sons-- passing on the mantle to the next generation.

Dominic: Yeah. Coming from a third generation comp.

Ronnie: Well, that's how I know. By you being the hero yesterday, you know, you positioned yourself to be Sonny's most trusted soldier.

Dominic: I think that honor belongs to Jason Morgan.

Ronnie: Okay. So you'll be his second most trusted soldier, for now.

Jason: Look, we both know your father's crazy. Do you think he's going to attack the Corinthos family right away?

Johnny: Is he capable of hurting innocent people? Yeah, absolutely. Is he going to do it now? No, probably not. He's got nothing to gain. Jason, considering the people that put me here were his.

Jason: Why don't you tell me about Claudia?

Johnny: What about her?

Jason: Come on, Johnny. She did something. What has she done?

Johnny: She--we've been through this, Jason. I'm not going to turn against her. You yourself warned me several times about Claudia because you know how dangerous she is. You didn't do anything about it. So now, anything she may do could partially be on you.

[Cell phone rings]

Jason: Yeah?

Sam: Hey. Where are you?

Jason: I'm at Mercy Hospital.

Sam: All right. I'm on my way. It's about Michael.

Jax: Michael. Thanks for stopping by.

Michael: Well, I told you I would. The school needs that check right away.

Jax: Oh. I think you're really going to enjoy Madison Prep. Give you a chance to get your life back together.

Michael: Heh. Yeah, like that's ever going to happen.

Jax: You know, I owe you an apology. Sonny's your father. I've no right to run him down in front of you or your brother.

Michael: You know, I really need to get that check over there.

Jax: I was hoping that we could have a conversation about your dad.

Michael: Well, it's pretty obvious that you hate him.

Jax: Okay. Um, it's not that black and white. You see, I've always been able to handle what your dad's thrown at me. But it's not just me anymore. I have a family now. And when Sonny's actions put any of you at risk, it makes me angry, and I shouldn't pretend otherwise. I mean, we have to be honest with each other, right?

Michael: Well, sometimes, I feel like the only time we're honest is when we think the other person can't hear us.

Jax: What are you talking about?

Michael: I know you came to see me in the Aftercare Institute, Jax, and I know what you said. I know what you did.

Olivia: You look better.

Johnny: Heh. Yeah, but I'd rather be in your bed.

Olivia: Mmm. Why don't you use that as your incentive to get out of here? I cannot wait to get you home.

Johnny: Maybe next time, I'll actually dodge the bullets or shoot the other guys first.

Olivia: A little grim today?

Johnny: Well, it's just the life I was born into. It will probably be the one to claim me.

Olivia: Don't say that, Johnny. No, you never had a chance at anything else, and you deserve better.

Johnny: Maybe I'm just wired this way.

Olivia: I don't believe that. You're a good man. And you're capable of doing bad things, just like the rest of us.

Johnny: Being way too easy on me, Liv.

Olivia: Just promise me that you'll do everything that you can to protect yourself, okay?

Johnny: Kevlar. Don't leave home without it.

Olivia: I'm serious. [Indistinct]. Just be careful who you trust, okay? Sonny or Jason... or Dominic. Yeah. I don't think you should trust them.

Dominic: Give me that. What?

Ronnie: What's the problem?

Dominic: It's Moran's. He wants it back. You know, that kid wants me to move into their house while I'm recuperating?

Ronnie: That's genius. That puts you right in the heart of the family. You know, that kid is your all-access pass to Sonny and the organization.

Dominic: Would you relax? I'm turning down the offer. He's a good boy. I'm not going to let him blame himself when I take down his old man.

Ronnie: Cardinal rule, my friend--don't get emotionally involved. You get too soft on the boy, you're going to start forgetting about Corinthos and doing your job. Never forget, the only reason you're here is to put Sonny in prison.


Sam: Hey. Okay. So I'm violating client privilege right now, but this is something that I think you should know. Michael is my new case, and he wants me to help find out who's responsible for his shooting.

Jason: Why didn't he come to me?

Sam: Because he's afraid of what he might remember and who you might go after for revenge.

Jason: What, do you mean he's starting to remember right now?

Sam: Yes. He's starting to remember what people said to him while he was in a coma.

Michael: The last thing you want is for me to find out, but it's too late. It's already happening.

Jax: I'm sorry I let it get to this point, Michael. I should never have trusted Jerry. I knew better. I failed you. And Carly can't ever know what happened.

Michael: You came to see me at the institute.

Jax: I did. I came on several occasions.

Michael: You sounded so guilty. You were scared that Mom would find out.

Jax: I was worried about your mother, and I still am.

Michael: What couldn't she know, huh? What did you have to do with my shooting?

Jax: I had nothing to do with your shooting, Michael.

Michael: I don't believe you. I think that I got shot because you were trying to kill my father.
