Lulu: Ripping off the place?

Ethan: What can I say, you've caught me red-handed.

Lulu: Hmm. Aren't you lucky I walked in and not Tracy.

Ethan: You can call her if you'd like, or you can call the cops. It's up to you. All I ask is for a little head start.

Lulu: Where are you going?

Ethan: I don't know; wherever I land. I'm just, I'm done with this place. I'm done with all of you. No offense.

Lulu: No, no, none taken. It's just a pretty sudden decision.

Ethan: Well, you know, I never meant to get caught up in all this family stuff. I like to hit a place, take what I can and get out. And I've been stranded here for too long.

Lulu: [Laughs] Brilliant performance. I think anybody else would have been convinced, but I don't buy this for a second.

Michael: Hey. You've got your carrots?

Carly: Yes, check, got those carrots.

Michael: Look, if you're tired of carrots, I can go chop up something else for you.

Carly: Like what? Cauliflower, broccoli? [Laughs] I'll keep the carrots. They're orange and they, I don't know, kind of remind me of Cheesy Chips.

Michael: Uh-huh, I found your secret stash. It's gone.

Carly: No!

Michael: It's for your own good.

Carly: [Sighs] Better not have found my stash of Ding Dongs in the kitchen.

Michael: What?

Carly: I'm kidding. What happened to you? You're just like Jax.

Michael: Look, the baby's gonna be here in a couple weeks. I'm just trying to do my part to make sure she arrives safe and healthy.

Carly: You're right. You're right. I appreciate everything you're doing. And any sacrifice is worth it for this little girl.

Michael: Even Cheesy Chips? Say it.

Carly: Do I have to say it?

Michael: Come on, like you mean it. If you say it out loud, you can't take it back.

Carly: Even Cheesy Chips. There, I said it.

[Door opens]

Dominic: I love Cheesy Chips. You guys got some?

Michael: You know what, actually, they're forbidden in this house. Mom can't have any junk food until after the baby's born.

Dominic: I see. Well, I'll be watching her.

Carly: Great, that's great. Why are you here? Michael's on his way to school.

Dominic: Yeah, that's why. Sonny sent me to take him.

Michael: No way. Morgan might need a baby-sitter, but I sure as hell don't.

Sonny: We lost an entire shipment in the hit last month after the Zaccharas went after the trucking yard and the warehouses. That means we're down for the quarter. We gotta get those numbers up. So whatever we talked about, you know, reconstructing --

Bernie: Yes, yes, I've started on that already.

Sonny: 'Cause I don't want my South American partners going elsewhere --

[Door slams]

Sonny: Kristina, what are you doing here?

Kristina: I know you're busy. You always are. I won't take much of your valuable time. I just want to go on record -- you don't have to make a baby because of me.

Kate: So I'm a little fuzzy on the details, but I'm pretty sure I owe you an apology for a conga line.

Olivia: Ya think?

Kate: [Stammering] No.

Olivia: How's the hangover treatin' ya?

Kate: Freakin' fantastic. And it's really mean of you to make such fun of my misery.

Olivia: Oh, believe me, a splitting headache is the least you deserve.

Kate: Deserve? Was I naughty or just plain made a fool of myself?

Olivia: Oh, I don't know about naughty. Coleman seemed to be enjoying himself tremendously.

Kate: C-Coleman?

Olivia: Oh, you couldn't get enough of him, honey. If he wasn't having such a good time, he could have had you arrested for sexual assault.

Kate: [Chuckles] Okay, I know that's your idea of a twisted joke.

Olivia: Oh, you don't have to ask me, ask anyone there. You had nothing to hide.

Kate: You know, Olivia, I think you can stop making fun of me now, because if you recall, I wasn't so drunk that I didn't recognize your child with Sonny. 

Ethan: Is it so hard to believe that I want out of this suburban madhouse? Compared to what I'm used to, Port Charles is rather provincial. I need the bright lights and fat cats with fat wallets. You know, lots of action.

Lulu: All of a sudden?

Ethan: No, I've been restless for months.

Lulu: Since Dad left?

Ethan: I started getting bored around then, yes.

Lulu: So why didn't you leave then?

Ethan: Because I was curious about my brother and sister, and now that curiosity's satisfied.

Lulu: Your timing seems suspicious. See, I do buy you stuck around to get to know me and Lucky. But Lucky let you know right off the bat he wanted nothing to do with you. And still you stayed, even after you dropped the bomb about your con with Rebecca, not only did you lose the girl, you also lost your cut. And again, you stayed. And now here out of nowhere --

Ethan: Okay, okay, God, you have to positively over think everything! You know, I woke up this morning and I felt the urge to hit the road. So this is me going.

Lulu: Oh, sorry. No good-byes, no nice to meet yours, no texts? "Old man in trouble, come quick to cas."

Ethan: You got one, too?

Lulu: Yeah, apparently our dad's in trouble. So can we stop pretending you know nothing about it, and figure out what we're going to do?

Elizabeth: Alexis, hi.

Alexis: Hey.

Elizabeth: Are the girls okay?

Alexis: Yes, oh, no, the girls are good.

Elizabeth: Good.

Alexis: I'm here doing community service, my pro bono work. And actually, it's a case that you've probably heard a thousand times. A poor, single woman who's been denied by this medical facility that I'm not going to mention the name of right now, because the insurance that she's paying through the nose for won't handle her preexisting condition.

Elizabeth: I hate hearing that. I hope you nail them to the wall.

Alexis: I plan to. You know, this work that I'm doing, this pro bono stuff is supposed to be punishment, and I have never felt more rejuvenated. I love this. This is why I became an attorney in the first place, it is. To be a voice for people who wouldn't otherwise have one. I love it. I don't know how I got so sidetracked all of a sudden.

Elizabeth: You know, it doesn't surprise me to hear you say that, because this whole D.A. thing hasn't really seemed to suit you very well.

Alexis: You see, an astute observer. Actually, that's why I'm going to take a chance and talk to you about something.

Elizabeth: Oh. The ulterior motive rears its head.

Alexis: Well, no. I just -- you know, I'm worried about Nikolas. And I don't want to be presumptuous at all, but I'm curious to know what your take is on him lately.

Elizabeth: Well, uh, I'm still not a fan of him being with Rebecca, but I've accepted that it's inevitable.

Alexis: You know, I'm not so sure that Rebecca is the problem.

Elizabeth: Really?

Alexis: Really. No, no, his behavior is unsettling to me. He's exhibiting classic male Cassadine traits.

Elizabeth: What do you mean?

Alexis: Well, he's distant, he's haunted, he's potentially explosive, and I'm worried that he might hurt himself.

Elizabeth: Physically?

Alexis: No, emotionally. That's where the Cassadines are most vulnerable. Am I going here all by myself, or do you not see any change in Nikolas at all?

Elizabeth: I-I guess. I mean, yes. Yes, I -- he's been troubled lately, and you can trace it back to when Rebecca deceived him.

Nikolas: I'm sorry, just for the record, I don't appreciate being gossiped about, in public no less, by two women that I'm supposed to trust.

Bernie: Excuse me.

Sonny: Okay... You're angry. Is something going on at home?

Kristina: Everything's fine. Thanks for asking.

Sonny: Okay --

Kristina: You usually don't.

Sonny: I realize you feel I've neglected you, but you can't just come in here --

Kristina: Don't talk to me like I'm a mental patient. It's not something I've made up in my head. I have been neglected. I never see you. You rarely call. The only reason you're making time for me now is because I caught you off guard. Oh, and because you feel guilty about what I did.

Sonny: You gotta organize your thoughts, because you're all over the place. You know, it's hard for me --

Kristina: No problem, I'll keep it simple. I ran your wife off the road and killed your baby. You feel so bad about it, you're going to have another kid you don't even want. The same way you don't want me. I'm here to ask you not to do it.

Carly: Hey, come here. What's with all the hostility? I thought you were fine with Dominic being your bodyguard.

Michael: To an extent. But I'm not 11 like Morgan. We should be operating under different rules.

Carly: Okay, what do you suggest?

Michael: Well, I don't want Dominic carting me around in front of my classmates. It's hard enough with them as it is. I drive myself to school.

Carly: Hmm.

Dominic: Carly, can I take this?

Carly: Yeah, sure.

Dominic: While you do make a good point, you're forgetting a lesson you just learned. A car can be a lethal weapon.

Michael: I really hope you're not gearing up to give me a lecture on the rules of the road.

Dominic: No, no, no. Nothing like that, not a negotiation. Promise me and Carly here right now that you'll control yourself on the road, and I won't have to sit in on every single class you've got.

Michael: I will be the most cautious driver on the road.

Dominic: Then I leave it up to your mother.

Carly: Hmm. If it were up to me, you'd have a bodyguard 24/7.

Michael: [Chuckles]

Carly: But I get how hard it can be, and I know how mean teenagers can be to each other. And I don't want to make your day any more difficult, but at nighttime, when you're out? I want Dominic close by.

Michael: Fair enough.

Dominic: Hey, how about that. We settled something without throwing anything.

Carly: Yeah, we're making progress.

Michael: Yeah. All right, I'm out.

Carly: Thanks. Michael can be pretty headstrong, and you're really good with him.

Dominic: Gah, yeah, compared to me at that age? Michael's a day at the beach. Just ask my ma.

Kate: Of course, it took me a moment to recognize him. I mean, after all, I haven't seen Dante since he was a boy, but those eyes... unmistakably Sonny's.

Olivia: Connie, I really don't want to do this right now. Okay?

Kate: And that smile? I mean, he definitely got that from his father, right? Of course, except the dimples.

Olivia: Connie, I swear to God, this is not --

Kate: Just relax, okay? I'm as sober as a judge today, and I'm well aware that Dante's paternity is not my secret to tell. But seriously, Olivia. What are you gonna do?

Olivia: About what?

Kate: About what? About what? Just cut it, okay? Dante is in Port Charles under an assumed named, right?

Olivia: I can't answer that.

Kate: Well, honey, you don't really have to. Does he know that's he's about to arrest his own father?

Olivia: Of course he doesn't know!

Kate: Well, do you think maybe you should tell him?

Olivia: It's too late! It's too late for any of this to cause anything but complete and utter havoc. For me, for Sonny, for Dante. We're too far along our paths, okay? It's just like my worst nightmare coming true. And I know that you told me a hundred and fifty million times that this was going to happen, okay? So do it. So do whatever you're gonna do. Say, "I told you so."

Claudia: Told her what?

Ethan: Luke sent us both the same message, but a few seconds apart.

Lulu: Why wouldn't he send one message to the both of us?

Ethan: Well, he doesn't know how.

Lulu: That's true. But both messages are unfinished. Unless that's all he meant to say. See, I thought that he got interrupted, but if he had time to type out both, then...

Ethan: We won't figure that one out today.

Lulu: Well, do you recognize the phone number?

Ethan: I looked up the country code. It's Greece.

Lulu: So that means Cassadines. Unless the phone is stolen. Well, if the phone is stolen in Greece, then that still spells Cassadines.

Ethan: You know, that would make sense. Luke disappeared right after Helena showed up. I mean, you blew it off, but he told me right before he left that he wasn't planning on going anywhere, and it rang true. So I'll bet Helena showed up just to kidnap him.

Lulu: Eh, I don't know.

Ethan: Well, that seems pretty obvious to me.

Lulu: That's because you have limited experience with our father. He takes off all the time.

Ethan: I know Helena knows that better than anyone. She could sail in here completely confident that his disappearance would not raise any red flags for months. Why are you so resistant to this possibility?

Lucky: Great, you're both here. I need all the help I can get. Yes, even yours.

Nikolas: I'm well aware of your inability to refrain from interfering in my life. But if you absolutely must discuss me with my friends, could you at least do it in private? Thanks.

Alexis: Sorry. And I'm sorry for being indiscreet. But I'm not going to apologize for being concerned about you when you give me reason to.

Nikolas: Reason?

Alexis: You haven't been yourself, Nikolas. Actually, far from it.

Nikolas: Why are you constantly analyzing my life? Don't you have enough on your plate already?

Elizabeth: I think the better question is, why are you snarking at Alexis? Are you so annoyed that she cares about you, or are you just pissed because she nailed you? I've seen the behavior she's talking about. You've turned all cold and inward, like a Cassadine.

Nikolas: Oh. Well, I'm sorry if I'm not living up to your expectations. I'm really doing the best I can. If you're disappointed in me, maybe you can take some comfort in knowing... you're not the only one.

Alexis: [Exhales]

Sonny: Obviously you heard something that upset you. Can you tell me what's going on here?

Kristina: I came by after Spinelli and Maxie's wedding. Well, they didn't actually get married, but that's not the point. I brought you a piece of cake.

Sonny: Right.

Kristina: I don't know what dumb thing I was thinking. That we'd grab some milk and bond.

Sonny: Would that be so bad?

Kristina: No, just impossible. Anyway, you were telling Mike that you didn't want to have another baby with Claudia, but you had to because it was my fault she lost the first one.

Sonny: Why didn't you tell me you were here?

Kristina: It didn't feel right. But it bothered me. I was up all night thinking about it. And I had to tell you, to beg you -- don't do it, Dad.

Sonny: [Stammering]

Kristina: No matter how much Claudia wants another baby or how guilty you feel, it won't be fair to the kid. To grow up knowing one of their parents didn't want them. And trust me, kids know.

Sonny: If you're talking about yourself, you're absolutely wrong.

Kristina: You feel an obligation to me.

Sonny: What do you mean --

Kristina: That's not the same as wanting or loving. You didn't even know I existed until Mom needed you to save my life.

Sonny: I wanted to help. I was thrilled to have a daughter.

Kristina: Maybe you really believe that, but I know it's not true. If you were so thrilled, you would have made time for me. You would have made sure that I knew you cared. But you didn't. And it's okay. I learned to live with that a long time ago. So don't stand there telling me I mean something to you. We both know I don't.

Kate: Move along, Claudia. Nobody wants to play with you.

Olivia: And we're not interested in making a spectacle, which is what always happens when you show up. So beat it.

Claudia: Really, look at the two of you, acting all haughty and superior. It's laughable, it really is. Because you're just a desperate hussy sleeping with a guy half your age, and you are some freakin' piece of work. Just can't keep a man.

Olivia: And you're a crazy bitch. Look at that.

Claudia: It's going to be so much fun watching you both come crashing to the ground. Especially you. You're about to get what you deserve, and so much more. You should really enjoy your life while you can.

Olivia: [Scoffs]

Kate: That was odd.

Olivia: Ah, it's same song, second verse to me.

Kate: No, didn't Claudia seem alarmingly confident? You don't think she could know about Dante?

Lucky: You already know that I asked Elizabeth to marry me, so, yes, Elizabeth and I are officially engaged. We just haven't set a date because we're working on some stuff. And one of those things is to spend more time together as a family. Listen, this is not easy for me to do, but I'm working on it. This includes you, okay?

Ethan: Well, I'm oddly flattered.

Lulu: What did you have in mind?

Lucky: I was thinking about a barbecue tomorrow night. And I'm going to invite Nikolas and Spencer, so that could include Rebecca. I can trust you that you're not going to start anything, right?

Ethan: Honestly, no.

Lucky: All right, well, maybe you'll change your mind. But I want you all there. Lulu?

Lulu: Yeah, sure, why not?

Lucky: Around seven. All right?

Lulu: Great. Bye.

Ethan: Well, I guess Lucky didn't get the memo.

Lulu: Well, Dad probably didn't want the cops involved.

Ethan: You want to tell him?

Lulu: No, not until we get a better handle on what's going on.

Ethan: You know, there's one person who might be privy to the information we need. Nikolas.

[Telephone rings]

Nikolas: What?

Helena: Nikolas?

Nikolas: Helena?

Helena: Nikolas, darling.

Nikolas: Is that you?

Sonny: I love you, Kristina. And it breaks my heart that you don't believe that.

Kristina: Don't lose any sleep over it.

Sonny: You did, obviously. Okay, look, I carry guilt because of your part in Claudia's accident. But look, it made me realize that I've been distant and that I need to pay more attention. It's complex, and --

Kristina: I know the drill. You're a criminal, dangerous to be around, bad influence. So Mom keeps you away. From her point of view, I get it. But you made it so easy. You didn't fight for me. You were just fine without me. I don't understand. You fight to the death for Michael and Morgan. Why is it different with me? Because they're boys? Because they're Carly's? Not that your reasons really matter. It hurts just as much.

Sonny: You're right. I was wrong. Every child needs their father. And out of anybody, I should remember that. I did everything... everything I could. I mean, I honored your mother's wishes, and it ended up hurting you. I -- I apologize. I didn't mean that to happen. If I can go back and do it differently, I would, but that's not possible. The only thing I can do now is just... move forward and try to be the best dad I can be for you. If, you know... if you're still interested.

Olivia: Unless you have been blabbing your mouth all over town, there's no possible way that Claudia could know anything about Dante, much less that he's Dominic.

Kate: Would you give me a little credit, Olivia? I don't blab, not even to Sonny in our most intimate moments. Even though I believe, with every fiber of my being, that he has every right to know.

Olivia: Really? I still need to defend this position to you, even now when it holds true more than ever? I sw -- if Sonny had any inkling about Dante, he would want to know everything about him. Spinelli could find out in five minutes that Dominic Pirelli is really Dante Falconeri, he's a cop. And I think we all know what happens then, Connie. Okay, I am nowhere near ready to bury my son.

Kate: Look, Olivia, I made you a promise years ago not to betray your secret, and I will honor that promise. But honey, you gotta be prepared. It's gonna come out. It is way too incestuous for us not to. Sooner or later, it is going to blow up in everyone's face, and you need a plan B.

Olivia: Okay, that's probably solid advice. Look who we just talked up.

Dominic: Miss Falconeri. Got some papers here for you to sign. Reassure me you can keep your mouth shut.

Nikolas: Grandmother, I can't hear you. Why are you calling me?

Helena: Come on, Nikolas. Nikolas, beware

Woman, with English accent: Mrs. Cassadine, you're not supposed to get yourself all worked up. The doctor says you need complete rest. I'm afraid I'm going to have to take this.

Helena: Oh, no! [Gasping]

Lulu: You don't like Nikolas, so I'm not surprised you can't be objective where he's concerned, but if Nikolas thought Helena grabbed our dad, he would have told me.

Ethan: Oh, that's touching. Your blind faith in Nikolas. It's misplaced, though. Your brother is seriously weird.

Lulu: Oh, my God, stop throwing stones, other weird brother.

Ethan: Hey. But before you get any bright ideas, you might want to refrain from telling Nikolas about this. You know, he might send his flying monkey minions off to warn the wicked witch.

Lulu: Did you hear anything that I just said?

Ethan: No. You have your opinions, I have mine.

Lulu: Honestly, something is just bothering me about this text. It's, like, I don't know, something's off.

Ethan: Care to share?

Lulu: Well, I mean, Dad has barely mastered email, right? And I'm willing to bet he's never sent a text in his life. And this whole, like, old man in trouble thing, that's not how he talks. That's more like how someone would think he talks.

Ethan: So you think Luke was coerced.

Lulu: I don't know, it's possible. I'm just trying to cover all the angles so we don't get caught in a trap.

Ethan: We?

Lulu: I'm going with you.

Ethan: [Laughs] Like bloody hell you are.

Lulu: I have more experience with the Cassadines.

Ethan: Absolutely not.

Lulu: What, are you forbidding me?

Ethan: Do I have to? I'm not about to drag my little sister, who I happen to care about very much, into a situation where you could get hurt. Besides, I'm going to need you here to cover my sudden departure. Don't worry, though, hey. I'll call you the minute I know something, promise.

Lulu: Goodie.

Michael: Mom?

Carly: In here.

Michael: [Sighs] Look at you. Being good on the couch with your veggies.

Carly: That's me, being good. Why are you home in the middle of the afternoon?

Michael: Don't you remember? I took a 2-hour free period so I could come home, work on the landscaping as part of my consequence for taking off to Mexico.

Carly: Ah, yes. Well, by all means, get your hands dirty.

Michael: Maybe I'll bring you back some flowers.

Carly: Aww. Hey. I'm really proud of you. And I love you to death.

Carly: I love you so much, baby. I know you're sick of hearing that, but I'll never be sick of saying it. I miss how you tease me, how you tell me I don't know how to play video games. Morgan just got a new one. It's called the Battlestar of the Seventh Galaxy. I bet I could learn to play that video game if you could just wake up and teach me.

 Carly: Michael? Michael! Hey! Is everything okay?

Dominic: I noticed you recognized me last night at Jake's. Thank you for almost making the family reunion public.

Kate: Yes, well, apparently my internal sensor was hammered. So you should actually thank your mother. I could have blown the whole thing wide open.

Dominic: Good job, ma.

Olivia: Just trying to avert disaster.

Dominic: Look, I can't tell you what I'm doing here or why I'm here, but I need your word that you won't tell anyone who I really am.

Kate: Dante, I'm worried that you're in way over your head, but I promised Olivia and I am promising you, I won't tell anyone.

Dominic: And if you get hammered again?

Kate: That was an extremely rare occurrence.

Olivia: I can vouch for that. Connie out of control happens once in a blue moon.

Dominic: Okay.

Kate: Just remember... lies are like dominoes. One push sends the whole stack crashing down. Make sure whatever you're doing is worth the fallout.

Dominic: Was that as near a miss as I think it was?

Olivia: You have no idea how close you just came to blowing your whole cover. I mean, I can't take this. My nerves can't take this. Don't -- don't say anything. I don't want to talk about it right here. Thank you very much for dropping this off. I'll get on it immediately.

Dominic: Mm-hmm.

Sonny: I realize I've done nothing to inspire your trust. And it's up to me to make things right. And I want to try, if you'll let me.

Kristina: I won't stop you. Mom might.

Sonny: Don't worry about -- I'll take care of your mom. It's just, you know, I did what she wanted. I knew it was a mistake. I mean, just to have you standing here in front of me thinking that I don't care about you, those thoughts shouldn't even be in your head. You're my daughter. And I love you like crazy.

Kristina: I'll try to remember that. Sorry for melting down all over your living room.

Sonny: No, hey, you know what, that's great. Because this talk was long overdue.

Kristina: It's just the thing about the baby that freaked me out. You having another baby to make up for what I did...

Sonny: You know what; I don't even want you to think about that anymore. Seriously. You just put Claudia's accident out of your mind. We're going to just move forward.

Kristina: Okay.

Sonny: Can you give your old man a hug?

Kristina: I should -- I should go. I skipped school. I should crack down on the books at home.

Sonny: Okay, you can't make this skipping school now a habit, 'cause you're doing so great.

Kristina: I won't.

Sonny: We're good?

Kristina: Sure.

Sonny: I'm gonna have Milo take you home, okay? All right.

Kristina: Kiefer, it's me. Meet me at my house as soon as you can.

Lulu: That one's more up to date.

Ethan: Oh, you've got to be kidding me.

Lulu: Don't waste time arguing. I'm on this plane and I'm not getting off. Besides, I have more experience rescuing our dad than you do.

Ethan: Are you always this obstinate, or is it just it your enemy?

Lulu: Both.

Ethan: I don't like this.

Lulu: Trust me, you will, because if Helena is really keeping our dad hostage, he's going to need us both.

Luke: [Sneezes] Ah. [Sniffs, coughs]

Alexis: Thanks for calling. What has gotten into our daughter? She's ditching school now?

Sonny: She was upset. Sit down.

Alexis: That's no excuse.

Sonny: It was my fault.

Alexis: I'm saying this with dread in my heart, but what exactly do you mean?

Sonny: Kristina came over here to give me a piece of wedding cake, and she overhead me say something to Mike.

Alexis: Tell me you weren't planning a murder.

Sonny: Can you give me a break, please?

Alexis: Okay, sorry.

Sonny: Thanks.

Alexis: What did she overhear?

Sonny: [Sighs] I was telling Mike that the only reason I want to have another child with Claudia is because I feel guilty that Kristina caused Claudia's accident.

Alexis: Are you really that clueless?

Dominic: Hey, Lulu, yeah, it's Dom. I just went up to your office. You were a no-show. I hope everything's okay. Anyway, uh... give me -- just give me a call when you get a chance. Okay. What do you want?

Claudia: That's not a very nice way to greet me. I think my feelings might be hurt.

Dominic: Yeah. You know, Claudia, I don't have time for this. I got somewhere I gotta be.

Claudia: Uh, make time. You're really going to want to hear what I have to say. In fact, a conversation with me could be very informative for you.

Dominic: I highly doubt that.

Claudia: No, I mean, you really want to hear what I have to say. 

Sonny: Can you just focus on what I'm trying to tell you about our daughter?

Alexis: Oh, but that's right, you're keeping me up to speed on our daughter.

Sonny: She thinks that I love my boys more than her. And I'll take some share of that responsibility, but you were the one who insisted that I keep my distance.

Alexis: Because I thought it was best.

Sonny: Well, she sure as hell doesn't. Now, she's hurting bad because she thinks her father doesn't love her, and you know that's not true.

Alexis: I do know that's not true. Could I just say one thing?

Sonny: You never just say one thing. And as far as you keeping me from Kristina again, that's going to end. I'm going to be in Kristina's life whenever she needs me.

Alexis: All right. I completely understand her wish to have you be a greater presence in her life. But here's a point that you insist on missing, that you are not Joe Schmoe ordinary daddy. You are a criminal. You run a criminal enterprise, and people -- actual people, innocent people get caught in your crossfire. And it would go against every mothering instinct that I have to not try to protect her.

Sonny: I understand that. But nothing's going to come between me and Kristina, our relationship. That's just the way that it has to be.

Alexis: And I understand that. So maybe we could just table this discussion --

Sonny: Great, good, I'd love that.

Alexis: Now about what Kristina overheard. She already has enough on her plate. And she doesn't need the added guilty burden of thinking she's the reason that you and Claudia are thinking about procreating. And may I ask you what you're thinking?

Sonny: Uh, Claudia... she's my wife.

Alexis: Then sleep with her, but don't procreate with her. In fact, stop procreating, period. You already have more children than you know how to handle.

Kiefer: Are we alone?

Kristina: Molly's at school, Milo is running errands, and my mom is working on her pro bono case.

Kiefer: I thought you said you needed me.

Kristina: Desperately.

Kiefer: Okay, not that I'm complaining, but what brought this on?

Kristina: It's just, I never have to wonder where I stand with you. When you're happy, I know it. When you're mad, I know that, too. But most of all, you want me. I want you, too.

Carly: Michael.

Michael: Mom.

Carly: Michael, get back here. You're not going anywhere until you tell me what's going on.

Michael: It's nothing.

Carly: Don't tell me it's nothing, because I saw. You remembered something, and it threw you. What?

Michael: I thought I remembered something.

Carly: From the coma.

Michael: It was just you standing by my bed, telling me you love me.

Carly: You finally remembered that, huh?

Michael: Well, that's the thing. I'm thinking that it might not even be a real memory.

Carly: Was it like a dream?

Michael: [Sighs] Yeah, I guess.

Carly: Well, give me an example.

Michael: All right, well, one time I remembered that Sam was in my room, but she never came to see me.

Carly: Maybe it's your brain just trying to work out what's real and what's not. I can tell you what is real, is that memory you just had. Because I spent hours at your bedside telling you how much I loved you.

Michael: Did you say that if I woke up, I could teach you how to play Battlestar...

Carly: Battlestar of the Seventh Galaxy. Yes, I did. I did.

Michael: Hmm.

Claudia: I'm sorry, Michael, I never meant for you to get shot. I was trying to protect my brother, not that that excuses for what I did. I sent the gunmen. I gave the order. It's my fault that you got shot.

Michael: Maybe you're right. Maybe some of the other memories are real, too.

Claudia: I bet you're feeling pretty confident right about now, aren't you? Dump the Zaccharas, back the winning horse and now you got your in with Sonny and you guys are bonding like crazy.

Dominic: What can I say, I'm a likeable guy.

Claudia: Yeah, Sonny certainly does seem to like you. It's funny, it's almost like he's taken a sort of paternal interest in you, you know?

Dominic: [Laughs] I think Sonny is grateful because I saved his son's life. And I have no problem using that to my advantage. Is that the answer you were looking for, because I will say just about anything to buy my way out of this --

Claudia: I don't like your attitude towards me, but you know what's nice, what's really good? I'm about to change that.

Dominic: Oh, well then do it, already. Whatever you got to say, get it over with.
