Lucky: I don't understand why Rebecca would be upset at Elizabeth over her break-up with Nikolas. I mean, it makes sense that she would be pissed off at him. I know breaking up was the last thing on her mind, so she was probably blindsided and angry.

Ethan: Well, yeah, all of the above, I think.

Lucky: Someone throws a curveball at you like that, it's natural to want to strike out at the person responsible. But that would be Nikolas, not Elizabeth. Are you sure that's what she said?

Ethan: I'm sure that's exactly what she said. I don't know, maybe Rebecca felt threatened by Elizabeth. Maybe Elizabeth felt threatened by her. It's a natural human tendency to diminish a rival, you know? I don't know. Maybe that's what she thought Elizabeth was doing.

Elizabeth: I don't know what you're all about right now, but this is not the time or the place. Come on, baby. I am asking you to leave.

Rebecca: I wouldn't dream of it, Elizabeth. Not without telling the boys what their mommy did tonight.

Cameron: I want to hear!

Rebecca: See? Cameron wants to hear. And I can't think of one reason why I shouldn't tell him what I saw at Wyndemere tonight.

Jax: Meet me at the hotel in an hour.

Dominic: Look, I thought we've already been through this. I'm not your lap dog. I don't fetch when you throw.

Jax: You don't understand. You want to see me. I've got something you need.

Dominic: Which would be?

Jax: A recording of Sonny incriminating himself in Claudiaís death.

Dominic: And how did you get in possession of something like that?

Jax: Well, let's just say I got sick and tired of waiting for you to do your job, so I did it for you. My office in an hour.

[Dominic scoffs]

Carly: Are you leaving?

Jax: Well, I could be persuaded to stay.

Carly: Well, I have it on good authority that our daughter wants to spend the evening with both of her parents. Any chance you'd be up for that?

Maxie: No, don't shoot me!

Jason: What the hell are you doing here?

Maxie: Am I too late? Did you already kill him?

Lucky: Ethan, I know you're trying to look after Rebecca. But you haven't known Elizabeth long enough to read her. So what you perceive as jealousy or being threatened is just this overprotective thing she has for Nikolas 'cause of Emilyís death.

Ethan: Oh, come on, spare me another chapter and verse about the whole sordid four musketeer saga, okay? That's not what this thing between Elizabeth and Rebecca is about.

Lucky: Okay, then what is it about? What are you trying to say?

Ethan: Look, I actually don't know her, okay, but something's going on. I just don't know what it is.

Luke: Well. Doesn't this warm a shriveled old heart? A semi-civil conversation between my male progenies. Can anybody join in, or is it private?

Lucky: No, no, it's fine. I just actually need to get going, so...

Ethan: Wait, no, hang on a second, okay? As long as we're all here, there's something I want to put on the table.

Luke: Easy, dodge.

Ethan: Okay, Luke won't admit it, but he's worried about you.

Lucky: No, he's admitted it. He just won't tell me why.

Ethan: Okay, ordinarily, it's my policy not to stick my nose in other people's business--

Luke: It's a very good policy. You should live by it.

Ethan: But Lukeís problems are starting to become my problems, okay? You're moping around here like someone died, and it's bad for business. If you notice, we're not open tonight, and the outlook doesn't look good. So why don't you get whatever it is off your chest?

Lucky: You're not going to tell me, are you?

[Music playing]

Dominic: I'm sorry. I mean, I really, all I want to do is hang out with you all night, but duty calls. I now have a meeting.

Lulu: Oh, right now?

Dominic: Yeah.

Lulu: You don't seem too happy about that.

Dominic: Well, you know what, I'm not a big fan of Jax.

Lulu: Why are you meeting with Jax?

Dominic: Well, because he feels he has the right to demand it, but I'm going to disabuse him of that notion once and for all.

Lulu: Okay, I think I've missed something, obviously.

Dominic: Jax has decided to contribute to my investigation, and now he's teetering on the brink of screwing the whole thing up.

Lulu: Wait, wait, wait, Jax knows that you're a cop?

Dominic: Yeah, he does. And guess who went to bat for me to get me reinstated on the case.

Lulu: Wow, you're full of surprises, Officer.

Dominic: I told you.

Lulu: This is not good.

Dominic: Yeah, you're telling me.

Lulu: I was thinking about Carly. She's about to get her heart broken.

Dominic: How so?

Lulu: Well, she would never stand for Jax pulling strings to put Sonny in jail, so that means he's doing it behind her back. And when she finds out, and believe me, she will... her marriage to Jax will be over.

Carly: Isn't she amazing?

Jax: Yeah, she is. She's a little miracle. Aren't you, little one?

Carly: She adores you. She lights up the minute she hears your voice.


Jax: I can't tell you how grateful I am that we were able to have a baby together.

Carly: Me, too. I feel very lucky. [Sighs] Now we put those words to the test. This little girl needs a bath. Want to help me put her down?

Jax: Absolutely.

Carly: Okay. Come on, let's go. Come on!

Jason: So how'd you find this place? Did you know the address the whole time?

Maxie: You know, I have just about had it with you taking out your oh-so-important frustration on me. I'm not your new punching bag. I told you the truth. I didn't know how to get to Franco's studio.

Jason: Okay, I'm going to ask again--how did you find it, then?

Maxie: Well, I went to your barren and aesthetically-challenged man cave to see Spinelli, and I happened to find this address.

Jason: Yeah, well, does Spinelli know you're here?

Maxie: No. Which is actually kind of sad. Spinelli doesn't know a lot about me lately. But anyway, did I make it in time? Did you kill Franco? I mean, I hope you didn't hurt him. He's a very gifted artist and extremely hot, not that I would ever go there again.

Jason: Okay, please, please stop talking. I did not kill Franco.

Maxie: So he is alive?

Jason: As far as I know.

Maxie: Is he here?

Jason: Do you see him?

Maxie: You know, you have to be probably the rudest person I know. You didn't happen to see any artistic photos of me laying around?

Jason: No. And this is a lot more serious than a few questionable photos. Something is really wrong with this guy.

Maxie: It's artistic--

Jason: No, do not make the mistake of underestimating Franco, Maxie. He's sick. He's capable of anything, including murder.

Luke: I should think by now, Mr. Lovett, you'd know me well enough to know that I speak for myself. I don't need you midwifing my words.

Ethan: Your words, what words? I haven't heard any words. That's my point.

Lucky: Well... I already know your concern. Is there anything new?

Luke: Yeah, well, you know, I have tried to talk to you about this several times. You are less than receptive.

Lucky: Well, let's see, you're afraid that I'm setting myself up for a fall, right? That my third marriage to Elizabeth is going to crash and burn just like the other two? Well, I'm aware, Dad, that one of the definitions of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, expecting a different result. But you know what? I'm a little insane. I am your son, after all. Listen, there's no need to worry, okay? Third time's a charm, right?

Luke: [Chuckles] Right.

Rebecca: Took your sweet time.

Elizabeth: I wanted to make sure my boys were sound asleep.

Rebecca: I was beginning to think you climbed out of a window or something.

Elizabeth: How dare you come into my house and threaten my children--

Rebecca: Did you miss it, Elizabeth? I was threatening you.

Elizabeth: Through my kids!

Rebecca: Oh, seriously? You're going to climb on your high horse?

Elizabeth: What's between you and me is one thing. Leave my boys out of this.

Rebecca: Oh, are you worried that their tender little psyches might be hurt to find out that their mother's a betraying tramp? [Laughs] Maybe you should have thought about that before you started banging Lucky's brother. You make me sick, Elizabeth. Almost as much as that selfish pig Nikolas. At least he has the excuse of his gender. Most men aren't generally known to turn down an easy piece. What kind of a woman keeps marrying the same man over and over, only to cheat on him again and again?

Elizabeth: Fine. I am a horrible person. But Cameron and Jake do not deserve to be dragged through this. So I am asking you, for their sake... keep your mouth shut.

[Rebecca laughs]

Lulu: This is really disheartening. I just think that Carly and Jax belong together. They've been through so much. They just had a baby together, and at the same time, Carly has a very deep connection with Sonny. She's got two sons. They have years of against-all-odds history. Not to mention the undeniable fact that if Sonny gets put in jail, Jason will, too, and that's unthinkable to Carly. She's never going to forgive Jax.

Dominic: Look, not to defend Jax, because I think he's a major pain in the ass, but I see where he's coming from. He doesn't want the family he's created with Carly, especially that brand new baby girl, to be in harm's way. And Sonny's surrounded by violence.

Lulu: I just wish that Jax would have been honest with her from the beginning. I think he's a very persuasive guy. And if he had just explained things to her, she might have come over to his side eventually.

Dominic: I doubt it. I mean, didn't Carly try and keep Sonny away from Morgan after Michael got shot?

Lulu: Yes, yes, exactly. Carly got Sonny to give her sole custody.

Dominic: And what, here we are, a year or so later, and Sonny's got full access again. Jax is only doing for Carly what she can't seem to do for herself.

Lulu: I'm sure that there are tons of reasons and justifications for Jax going behind Carlyís back, but Carly is not going to see that. She's just going to feel betrayal. I think I need to warn her.

Dominic: No, no. You canít.

Carly: Beginner's luck, are you kidding me?

Jax: No, no, no, no.

Carly: Hi. What are you doing? You're not supposed to play video games on a school night.

Morgan: I'm not. It's not my game. It's Jax's phone.

Jax: Don't play with that!

Maxie: Look, I'm the first person to admit that Franco is massively strange. And the fact that he is infatuated with you, I think, is really creepy, but that doesn't make him a murderer. But then again, you could always say "takes one to know one." I don't really see how any of this is your business. I mean, can't we just look the other way?

Jason: Maxie, can we just be serious for a second and listen to me? You and "Crimson" were a means to an end, that's all. I'm sorry. A way for Franco to get my attention. I'm not just speculating. I have good reason to believe that he's already killed once. I mean, look at this place. It speaks for itself.

Spinelli: Maximista, what are you doing here?

Jason: No, what are you doing here, Spinelli?

Spinelli: The Jackal's foreboding is validated. With sincere apologies to Stone Cold, I realized too late, as it turns out, that I left this address where Maximista could easily spot it. It is not safe for you to be here.

Maxie: I'm really sorry, Spinelli. I just couldn't let Jason kill Franco. He's too important to me.

Morgan: Here you go, Jax.

Jax: Sorry, buddy, I didn't mean to snap.

Morgan: That's okay, I should have asked first.

Jax: It's just that our lives are in our cell phones these days, and all my business contacts are on here, and notes from important meetings and things like that. I wouldn't want something to get erased accidentally.

Carly: You know you're not supposed to be playing video games on a school night.

Morgan: I wasn't really playing a game. More like scanning. But since we're on the subject, can I be honest?

Carly: Okay. Be honest.

Morgan: No video games during school nights is an arbitrary rule that puts undue pressure on me. Video games is a way of relieving stress, and I get most of that during the week from class and sports and homework. And that's when I need video games.

Carly: Okay. You made a great argument. I'll think about it, I promise.

Jax: I'll tell you what. Why don't you play by your mother's rules for now, and then when school is out, you and I will fly to Dallas together to the video game expo. And you can play till you drop.

Morgan: Really?

Jax: Yes, absolutely.

[Both laugh]

Dominic: Look, I get why you want to tell Carly what Jax has been up to, but you can't, for a whole bunch of reasons. But first and foremost, you cannot clue Carly into what is going on without her finding out who I am. I hope you see that.

Lulu: I do, but...

Dominic: Okay, look at it this way. Whether Jax's part in Sonny's bust happens now or after he's arrested, Carlyís going to have the same reaction, right?

Lulu: Yes. Anger and betrayal.

Dominic: Okay, so Carlyís happy right now. Her and Jax are in love. They're raising a new baby. Why not let her enjoy that? Don't take it away. Let her have it for as long as she can.

Lulu: Oh, I hate this. I hate this. I hate knowing that a wrecking ball is coming for someone that I love and not being able to warn her. This is why I don't believe in love. Because it doesn't work out. People lie to each other. They do selfish things to push their own agendas, not thinking about how it affects the other person, who's going to end up getting kicked in the gut. And everything's going to come crashing down, collateral damage and all.

Dominic: Okay, listen, you don't have to make this theory a self-fulfilling prophecy. Sure, love is messy and unpredictable, but it doesn't mean it's hopeless.

Lulu: Yeah, I'm sure that's what Carly thought, too.

Rebecca: Oh, wow. Wouldn't Lucky be surprised to find out how easily you use your own kids to save your own sorry self? Where all of a sudden, you're so worried about Cam and Jake and how their lives could be upended? I'm willing to bet that you weren't thinking about them when you were jumping Nikolas' bones.

Elizabeth: [Scoffs] Are you morally outraged? Because that would be a joke. Rebecca Shaw, liar, con artist. Someone who certainly wasn't above using her dead sister's memory to swindle all the people Emily loved. What the hell are you doing here, anyway?

Rebecca: Either answer or donít. It's not going to change anything. But I'm curious-- if my sainted sister were alive, would you have betrayed her the way you did Lucky?

Elizabeth: None of this would have ever happened.

Rebecca: Now who's the liar, Elizabeth? You and Nikolas are faithless, sex-obsessed pigs. You cheated on Lucky with Jason. Nikolas cheated on Emily with Courtney. You both would have scratched your itch sooner or later, because that's how you roll. But Lucky deserves better. He deserves the truth.

Elizabeth: Fine. Tell him.

Lucky: I never thought I'd see you like this, Dad. Afraid to speak to your own son. Has there ever been anything that you were too scared to tell me?

Luke: Ethan, can you give us a couple minutes?

Ethan: Gladly.

Lucky: Let's have it. Come on.

Luke: I know you're going to think I'm butting in. That I'm just dredging up the past; Elizabeth and the kids. But I'm not. It has nothing to do with that. It's not about the past. This is about what's happening right now. And I wish I didn't have to do it. I'd like nothing more than to just let the chips fall where they may. And I would. If this was about some obscure future problem. But, cowboy, you're standing in the middle of the train tracks, and there is a runaway freight train headed right for you. So I have no choice--


Ethan: You son of a bitch!

Lucky: Whoa, whoa, whoa, hey, hey, hey!

Spinelli: I'm not sure I understand. Maximista's limited contact with Franco should not have rendered him important to her in any lasting sense, unless there's something I don't know about.

Maxie: No, Spinelli, are you kidding? I only said important because I still need to get a hold of Franco so he can do that photo shoot for "Crimson." And it would be nice if Jason left him alive so he actually could do it.

Spinelli: [Sighs] Um, oh, I bring disappointing news. My search has not elicited any results.

Jason: How can that be? You can find anybody.

Spinelli: Well, apparently, not the elusive Franco. The only evidence that we have to actually speak to his existence are those gallery appearances from three years ago, which leads to the onerous question--why would the darkly focused one go to such lengths to cover his tracks if he did not, indeed, have something heinous to hide. So again, I must stress, please, cease and desist all contact with this man.

Maxie: But what about everything I've done for this photo shoot?

Spinelli: It's not more important than your life. In general, I strive to rise above ingrained caveman instincts, but in this case, I must insist you do as I ask.

Maxie: Okay, Spinelli.

Jason: Well, Maxie, I hope you mean that. Please, can you just get her out of here?

Maxie: [Scoffs] All right, well, good luck. Because if what you're saying is true, whatever Franco has planned for you can't be very good.

Jason: Okay, thank you.

Maxie: And me saying that doesn't mean it's okay for you to make him disappear!

Jason: All right, thank you.

[Door closes]

Sam: Hey, whoa. Nice to see you, too.

Jason: Sorry.

Sam: I know, occupational hazard. Any luck here?

Jason: No. What about you?

Sam: No. I went around the whole entire neighborhood. Nobody's ever seen Franco as the homeless guy or a famous artist, ever. It's sort of like he's a ghost.

Jason: I don't even know how this is possible. I mean, Franco's been here for months. It's not like we live in the desert. We live right in the middle of a city. Somebody had to see him.

Sam: Yeah, and Jason, there's a lot of stuff in here. There's no way he got the stuff up here by himself. There has to be a witness.

Jason: [Sighs] You know what, Franco can stay invisible until it serves his purpose to be seen. And he'll come out of hiding. And when he does, I'm going to find out, why me?

Maxie: All right, you didn't say one thing to me the entire way back, and that is not like you.

Spinelli: I just wish to proceed with caution. Lest my concern for your fair self be misconstrued as anger or frustration that you would ignore all warnings to the contrary and go to Franco's studio using information--privileged information--that you obtained from your clueless beloved.

Maxie: Spinelli, you're not clueless.

Spinelli: Well, it didn't occur to me until after you had left the premises on a rather flimsy pretense that you had seen Franco's studio address, which I left out in the open when Stone Cold has repeatedly warned me that security is of the essence when it comes to you. And I should have known better.

Maxie: Jason told you not to trust me?

Spinelli: Well, I think he's observed that your priorities don't necessarily march with his, or... mine sometimes, for that matter. I mean, just as things that seem earth-shatteringly important to you have little or no consequence to Stone Cold, so... certain occasions that are literally life and death seem to escape your notice.

Maxie: Wow. Iím pretty sure that you just called me shallow.

Spinelli: No, I'm sorry, that was not my intention. What I was trying--am trying-- to do is convey my dismay at the incredible risk that you took.

Maxie: Okay, so you can even make up your mind? Because I'm not sure from one minute to the next whether or not you think Franco is a psychotic murderer or just a misunderstood artist.

Spinelli: I greatly fear he may be both.

Maxie: Based on what?

Spinelli: Well, yes, he hasn't done anything overtly hostile. But, still, his overtures have left Stone Cold atypically unsettled.

Maxie: So you're saying if Jason's scared, there's a good reason.

[Music playing]

Michael: I'll take a beer.

Coleman: Nice try, kid.

Michael: What'd you just call me?

Coleman: Check it out, man. Even if I didn't know you, if you came in here with the best fake id ever made, I'd still peg you as a minor.

Michael: Here's a tip, Coleman. You don't want to refuse me.

Coleman: [Chuckles] Oh, yeah, man? Why is that?

Michael: Because my dad likes it when I'm happy.

Coleman: Is that like a second party threat or something?

Michael: No, it's a tip, like I said.

Coleman: Hmm. Well, here's my tip--I don't mind bending the occasional rule, but serving alcohol to you won't be one of them. 'Cause then I'd really be behind the eight ball with your dad and Jason. That's, of course, not to mention your mom.

Carly: [Grunts] Is this the book you were looking for?

Jax: That's exactly the book I was looking for. I wanted to read this later on. I'll take it to the guest room.

Carly: Well, that's just wrong, isn't it?

Jax: What's that?

Carly: You going to the guest room in our home? Sucks.

Jax: Yeah.

Carly: Especially after having such a great night with our kids. You know, hanging out with Josslyn together.

Jax: Yeah. I miss us, too, you know. I'll do whatever you need to get us back.

Carly: You're doing it. I mean, you are. It's just me. I... I'm just having to deal with accepting it. And I have to help Michael cope with everything that he's going through right now, so.

Jax: That confrontation with Lucky scared you, didn't it?

Carly: Everything that deals with Michael right now scares me.

Jax: Well, maybe it's time that we got Michael psychiatric help.

Carly: Yeah, maybe. How well do you think that's going to go over?

Jax: Not very well.

Carly: Mm-mmm.

Jax: But we gotta try. We can do it together.

[Cell phone rings]

Jax: Sorry.

Carly: Just as well.

Jax: Well, speak for yourself.

Carly: You have to leave?

Jax: Yeah, it's an important meeting. I can't miss it. Save my spot, okay?

[Door opens, closes]

Elizabeth: You need to understand something. If you think I'm going to meekly sit around and wait for you to drop a bomb on my life, you're delusional. Go ahead, you do whatever it is you need to do. Tell Lucky I'm a slut. Ruin his relationship with his brother.

Rebecca: Wow, you are unbelievable. You're actually trying to make this my fault? Wow, you've got nerves of steel, Elizabeth. I will give you that. But drop in on the real world. See, you chose to sleep with the brother of the man that you're engaged to. Anything that you suffer as a consequence is squarely on you. So you can forget trying to guilt me into keeping your dirty little secret. Lucky's going to know what a betraying bitch you are before the night's done.

Lucky: Whoa, whoa, hey, hey, that's enough! That's enough!

Ethan: No, it's not enough! Come on, you're gonna trash Rebecca, be man enough to answer for it.

Nikolas: I am not going to have this fight with you right now.

Ethan: Well, too bad, you're in the middle of it.

Lucky: What the hell is wrong with you? Are you okay?

Nikolas: Yeah, I'm fine.

Lucky: Come on, let's get out of here. I don't know what he's been drinking...

Luke: No, hang on. Not so fast. I think Nikolas has something he'd like to say. Right? I hear confession is good for the soul.

[Nikolas sighs]

Michael: This doesn't have to be an argument.

Coleman: My sentiments, exactly.

Michael: It can be confidential. You know, my mom and dad, Jason, they never even have to know about it.

Coleman: Can't take that chance, Michael.

Michael: Then maybe I'll just leave. Find Max and Milo and maybe my dad, and let them know that you're giving me a hard time.

Coleman: Well, I don't see how I could stop you, man. But I will give you a piece of advice to take on your way.

Michael: I hate advice. That's all I get these days.

Coleman: Well, maybe that's because people see you, you know, throwing this attitude around, dropping your dad's name without discretion, and they're worried about what you might be bringing down on yourself. You know, this mouthing off and carrying a big stick. All that stuff does is breed resentment. Makes you a target. Take a lesson from your old man. One of the reasons he's been able to maintain power for so long is because he's low-key about wielding it. You want to be a man? Show you've got more in common with your dad than just his name.

Spinelli: I wouldn't necessarily characterize Stone Cold's present attitude is one of fear.

Maxie: Of course you wouldn't, because you don't like to think that Jason canít be scared. But he can. Anyone can. Yeah, he doesn't show it like most people. And I'm sure on him, sheer terror looks more like mild irritation. But the point is, Jason is worried about Franco. And so far, I don't really see a reason why. I spent a few hours with him at the gallery opening. And where he was weird to talk to, I didn't think he was hostile or dangerous or threatening. I mean, let's face it, if it came down to a real fight, Jason could pound Franco flat if he didn't shoot him first, which I hope he wouldn't do, because that would be a real loss to the artistic community, and would crush any last hope "Crimson" has of getting him to do the photo shoot.

Spinelli: Right. I mean, your reasoning, however convoluted, is sound. I mean, Jason has no reason to fear. But, yes, he is most definitely on edge. It's like he senses something.

Maxie: Yes, Jason can be helpful and sometimes heroic. But I refuse to believe that he's psychic or he senses anything about Franco. I just think that Jason doesn't like the guy because he's sophisticated and artistic, and Jason's about as artistic as a block of wood.

Spinelli: I was more referring to an instinctive reaction on Stone Cold's part. He has an affinity for sensing danger. And he senses it in Franco. If I might make an analogy, it's like Franco and Stone Cold are predatory animals. And Franco's encroaching on Stone Cold's territory. And, yes, he hasn't done anything hostile. But still, Stone Cold senses sinister motive.

Maxie: Either you've been watching too much of the nature channel, or you just have profound insight. All right, so the night of the gallery opening, Franco was asking me all sorts of questions about Jason.

Spinelli: Yes, and likewise, Stone Cold was focused on Franco. And specifically, a gesture he made. Like, just a simple wave good-bye. But Stone Cold was convinced it was something more, that Franco was sending him a message.

Maxie: What are you saying, that you think these two are alike? And they're in some sort of duel? Well, why would Franco want that? Jason is a professional hit man. Not to be morbid or anything, but Franco just takes pictures of people who pretend to be dead while Jason kills people for real. So Franco would have to be insane to want to go up against Jason.

Spinelli: Exactly.

Jason: I'm starting to think we're wasting our time.

Sam: Why would he go through all this trouble if he wasn't going to show up?

Jason: Why does this freak do anything?

Sam: Jason, do you think he's watching us?

Jason: No, there's no cameras. I already checked.

Sam: It just doesn't feel right.

Jason: I think Franco wanted me to see this place tonight for a reason. And I think he's going to come back when he's ready for me to find him.

[Cell phone rings]

Jason: [Sighs] Yeah?

Coleman: Yeah, it's Coleman. Look, Michael is down here at Jake's looking for trouble and I'm pretty sure he's going to find it. And I'm not crazy about him getting busted down here in my joint, so how about you do us both a favor and come on down and get him the hell out of here.

Luke: Okay, Nik, you got the floor. [Breathing heavily] You want to explain yourself? You want to make a case for what you've done?

Lucky: Okay, I don't know what is going on here, except that everyone is mad at everyone. And I need to get going. So I'm just going to leave you guys to figure it out. Good night.

Luke: Does that make you feel good, huh? Knowing that his first instinct is always to protect you? Knowing that his trust is so blind in you?

Nikolas: I'm not going to do this with you right now.

Luke: Where would you like you to do it, Mr. Cassadine? What would make you comfortable?

[Cell phone rings]



Nikolas: Hello?

Elizabeth: Rebecca knows. She knows we slept together. She saw us at Wyndemere.

Nikolas: When? Tonight?

Elizabeth: I guess.

Nikolas: You sure?

Elizabeth: She was just at my house rubbing my face in it, and now she's on her way to tell Lucky.

Nikolas: All right, I'll handle it.

[Luke chuckles]

Ethan: Well, what was that about?

Luke: I wish I didn't know, but I'm afraid I do.

Dominic: All right, what the hell are you talking about? What's this recording you have?

Jax: I got a recording on my cell phone. Sonny admitting to Claudiaís murder. The funny thing is, it wasn't even that hard to get. He's so arrogant, he couldn't wait to brag about it. Which begs the question, you've been working on this for months, Detective Falconeri. How come you couldn't get something like this?

Dominic: Well, I guess I just don't have the gifts you have.

Jax: Oh, really? Or maybe you're just not that motivated, huh? Maybe you're getting too close to your target. Maybe you're actually helping Sonny cover this up instead of trying to bring him down.

Dominic: I'm going to try to be not insulted by that, and focus on the bigger picture instead. You may be a ruthless business man, Jax, but what you are not is a cop. Getting that recording constitutes a couple of things. First of all is obstruction of justice and second of all is interfering with an officer in the course of his duties. In other words, Jax, you broke the law.

Maxie: Here's what I think-- we should just let Jason do whatever it is he's going to do about Franco, and you and I should focus on something that we actually can influence, namely us.

Spinelli: Your non-husband has to renew his quest for additional information--

Maxie: My non-husband has been working too much for too long, and that is counterproductive. I think that you need to take a break and come at things with a fresh perspective.

Spinelli: Forgive me if I'm slightly suspect of your motives.

Maxie: Spinelli, Iím not talking about you leaving Jason dangling above a pit of alligators. But even you said his instincts were all fired up. And either Jason and Franco are going to act like predatory animals, or Franco's going to slap Jason with a restraining order, and then it's up to Diane to bail them out. So either way, you can't really do anything about the situation right now. But here we are, alone together. You know, not too long ago, you used to love that.

Spinelli: I still... you are, and always will be, my beloved. So yes, alone time is to be cherished.

Maxie: No, donít cherish; make the most of it.

Spinelli: Your ardor is most welcome butÖ itís unnecessary.

Maxie: Of course it's necessary. I love you, Spinelli. More than anything. More than my career. And I haven't shown you that lately. But I promise you that I will show you right now.

Lucky: Hey, if those guys were involved in the fight, I want to talk to them.

Man: Talk to him, he started it.

Coleman: What's up, Lucky?

Coleman: Hey, finish your shoot.

Lucky: You serving minors now, Coleman? You know, you really shouldn't be here. Coleman could get into a lot of trouble.

Michael: Oh, yeah? What are you going to do, arrest him?

Lucky: I wasn't trying to speak as a cop.

Michael: You know, who'd be able to tell the difference? That's what you are. I don't get you, Lucky. I mean, Luke is one of the coolest guys on the planet. He's fun, he's adventurous, he plays for high stakes. And you've become a cop. Wow.

Lucky: I used to be a lot like you, Michael. My dad was too big of a hero to ever be a real person to me.

Michael: Look, stop talking to me like you know anything about me. You donít. Okay, you have no idea what I've had to deal with, who I am--

Jason: Michael! Enough.

[Michael sighs]

Jax: There's just one problem with that, Detective. There hasn't been any justice to obstruct because you actually haven't done anything yet.

Dominic: [Chuckles] I'm proceeding with due caution. Okay, I'd like the case against Sonny to actually stick.

Jax: Okay, well, then you'll be pleased.

Sonny: They wonít. I figure the cops will think I killed Claudia for all the reasons she deserved. But that's why there is no evidence to find. I disposed of the body where it cannot be found. The cops can look all they want. They will not prove anything.

Judge: Elizabeth Webber, the court has judged you an unfit mother. Custody of your two minor sons will be given respectfully to their fathers. Lucas Lorenzo Spencer Jr. will have sole custody of Cameron. And Jason Morgan will have sole custody of Jacob Martin.

Elizabeth: No, no, you can't do this. Please don't take my boys from me.

Judge: This hearing is adjourned.

Elizabeth: Please! Please, I know I was wrong but don't do this! You can't take them! Cameron! Wait! Wait, I'm begging you. Jake!


Cameron: Mommy! Why are you crying?

Nikolas: Hey, Lucky, I'm right by your house. I thought I'd stop in. I just wanted to know if you were around. All right.
