Spinelli: Betrayal is a bitter pill, especially at the hands of the faithless blonde. So the gumshoe was prepared to accept his fate--another solo New Year’s Eve--just him, his battered heart, and a vintage nectar of the gods. And then she strolled in, stepping off the silver screen and into his office.

Woman: Mr. Jackal, I heard you were looking for me.

Spinelli: He was already intrigued. Those shapely gams sealed the deal. But before he could open his special delivery, the architect of heartache came calling. The bombshell arrived to find a dark-haired goddess in the gumshoe's embrace. He waited for the explosion that was bound to follow.

Maxie: Finally, you've cheated on me. Now I can be with Clark.

Spinelli: Clark...Gable?

Maxie: He is so dreamy. I'm happy you two found each other.

Maxie: Spinelli, there you are. Can you please tell me that you called Anne Hathaway and are gonna cheat on me so we can put this whole unfortunate situation behind us?

[Indistinct P.A. announcement]

Epiphany: We're a little overdressed for rounds, aren't we?

Robin: Well, my husband is taking me out for New Year’s. We're going to the Metro Court, and I'm going to eat lobster, drink champagne, and dance on the rooftops while we look at the city lights.

Epiphany: Oh, life's rough.

Robin: Well, I have spent the entire year either dressed in scrubs or something that's Emma-proof.

Epiphany: Well, that dress is nicer than scrubs.

[Telephone rings]

Epiphany: 10th floor nurses station, Nurse Johnson.

Patrick: Wow.

Robin: Hi. Would you care to elaborate on "wow"?

Patrick: Wow pretty much says it all. You look gorgeous.

Robin: Mmm. So do you.

Patrick: How about we skip dinner and dancing and just get a room?

Robin: I did not put this outfit together for you to just take it off of me right away, at least not until later.

Patrick: Well, let's get started. The sooner we get started, the sooner we get to the main event.

Robin: Oh, goodness.

Epiphany: Hold your mo, Doctors. We have just heard from the E.R. All hands are needed on deck.

Kiefer: Oh, hi, Ms. Davis.

Alexis: Hi, Kiefer. I wasn't expecting you over. I didn't know you guys had plans. I'm not sure I'm so crazy about you guys driving out on New Year’s Eve.

Kiefer: Oh, we weren't going out. Krissy just wanted me to keep her company while she watches Molly.

Alexis: I didn't ask her to watch Molly.

Kiefer: Uh, she said you have a date with Commissioner Scorpio.

Alexis: Molly!

Mac: You and Elizabeth have plans tonight?

Lucky: No, Christmas was our big celebration this year, so we didn't make any plans for tonight.

[Footsteps approaching]

Mac: Maybe you should have let Elizabeth know.

Maxie: This would be a lot easier if you would just admit that you're mad at me.

Spinelli: I told you I was angry. But then I told you I was over it.

Maxie: That's impossible, Spinelli. I...cheated on you.

Spinelli: Yes, and yet you won't allow me to have my own reactions and feelings as I see fit.

Maxie: Because if I take your word for it that you've forgiven me, then we would both be deceiving ourselves. The bitterness and anger will fester.

Spinelli: Well, I don't cling to bitterness. In my world, the glass is always half full.

Maxie: Trust me, Spinelli, we would regret it. I've had a lot of experience with betrayal and jealousy.

[Knock on door]

Max: Ohh...

Spinelli: Ah, good protector of the night--

Maxie: Now is not a good time.

Max: I need the services of the Jackal, P.I., ASAP.

Spinelli: Is Mr. Sir in dire straits?

Max: No, it's me. You know me and Ms. Miller got back together, right?

Spinelli: It was the Jackal's efforts that helped facilitate the reunion.

Max: Except the longer we're together, the more I'm convinced while Ms. Miller was commuting back and forth to Philadelphia that she--ohh-- met another man. My girl cheated on me. Ohh...

Alexis: Once was cute, twice was a little annoying, 3 times bordering on obnoxious.

Molly: Well, I'm sorry, Mom, we just didn't want you to spend New Year’s Eve alone.

Alexis: I'm not spending it alone. I'm spending it with my girls.

Kristina: That's pathetic.

Kiefer: Uh, would you like me to leave?

Alexis: Oh! I forgot you were there. No, no, I don't want to be rude. Come in, join us. I just want to be very clear that the two of you stop fixing me up. And shame on Mac for going along with this.

Kristina: Be fair, Mom. You're not making it very easy for him.

Alexis: I'm not trying to make it easy for him. And stop railroading him. If he were that interested in a date, he'd call me himself.

Kristina: Do you mean that? Are you saying that if Mac actually pursued you, you'd consider him, give him a chance, maybe?

Alexis: Why do you ask?

Kristina: Oh, because that's exactly what happened. Mac called here.

Molly: I'm the one who spoke to him. You weren't home, so I asked him why he was calling, in case it was important.

Alexis: You couldn't take a message?

Kristina: He wanted to know what you were doing for New Year’s. Molly told him you didn't have any plans.

Alexis: Oh, great. That didn't make me look pathetic at all.

Molly: Oh, well, sort of. But then I realized how Cyrano de Bergerac was the go-between for Roxanne and the very cute but sort of dumb guy who liked her. Not that Mr. Scorpio doesn't have wit and intelligence. He does. But then I decided that I would be Cyrano. Without the nose, of course.

Kristina: So, now you have a very nice man who decided to ask you out without any of our help, to spend New Year’s Eve with. He should be here in about, um, 15 minutes.

Alexis: What? Have you--have--have you ever considered the fact that I might want to pick out who I want to date myself?

Kristina: You won't even consider Mac, and I don't understand why.

Alexis: Because he's a nice guy, but he's not my type.

Kristina: Yeah, we've seen your type.

Alexis: It--do you mind?

Molly: I think what Kristina is saying is that you pick men who treat you badly. They'll never make you happy.

Alexis: Do--this is not a conversation to be having while we have company, now, is it? So why don't the 3 of you go do something fun. Why don't you go into the kitchen and--and--and pop something. I wanted children.

Lucky: Okay. I think I'm all set. Wow. You, uh, you look beautiful.

Elizabeth: Thank you.

Lucky: I think I'm gonna be in trouble, 'cause, um, I have no idea what plans we made.

Elizabeth: That's because we didn't make any. But I have something particular in mind.

Lucky: Really? Okay. Where am I taking you?

Elizabeth: Oh, no, no, no, no. I am taking you, and as soon as you get in the car, you're gonna be wearing this.

Molly: Hi, Mr. Scorpio.

Mac: Hi, Molly.

Molly: Well, you look very handsome.

Mac: Thank you.

Molly: Doesn't he look handsome, Mom?

Alexis: Hi, Mac.

Mac: Hi, Alexis. I'm gonna take a wild guess. Uh, you didn't think we had plans tonight.

Alexis: Well, the fact is, "we" didn't have plans. You had plans with Miss Busybody. I just found out about it.

Mac: I thought it was a little strange you were never home when I called. But Molly's very efficient at passing along messages and information.

Alexis: That's because she makes it up as she goes along. Just for future reference, the girls don't run my social calendar.

Mac: Future reference.

Kristina: Well, that sounds hopeful.

Alexis: I'm sorry that you had to make the drive over here, Mac, and so are the girls. Girls?

Molly: I'm sorry.

Kristina: I'm sorry.

Mac: That's okay. I know your intentions were good.

Alexis: Oh, and Molly's right. You look very nice.

Mac: Thanks. Um, excuse me a second. Can I ask you a question?

Alexis: Sure.

Mac: You know, we've gone out a couple of times, and you said you had a good time. Were you just blowing smoke?

Alexis: No, not at all.

Mac: So then what's the problem with a couple of colleagues, friends, really, going to the Metro Court to ring in the New Year? Come on. I have reservations. You know, they have a special menu, a band. I can't promise that I won't step on your toes or anything, but I promise I'll try to keep it interesting.

Molly: It's not like you'll miss anything here.

Kristina: I'm sure we can watch the ball drop without you.

Kiefer: Honestly, Ms. Davis, if you can say no after that, the commissioner will be trashed.

Alexis: It'll just take me a minute to change.

[Molly and Kristina giggling]

Molly: Whoo!

Patrick: Patient's stable for now. ICU’s keeping an eye on her. We have to run another cat scan in the morning, but if the swelling doesn't go down, we're gonna have to go in and relieve the pressure.

Epiphany: Got it.

Patrick: Think I'll ever get out of here tonight?

Epiphany: Not a chance.

Lisa: EMTs just brought in a critical patient. Male, late 30s. His car skidded of an embankment. Severe head trauma and his spine's a mess.

Patrick: Okay, you want to double team?

Lisa: That's what I was thinking. They're prepping O.R. 3. I just got this back from radiology.

Patrick: Epiphany, I'm going to scrub in on Dr. Niles' patient.

Epiphany: The O.R. is ready.

Patrick: Okay.

Lisa: When I left Houston for Port Charles, I told myself things would be a lot calmer here.

Patrick: Port Charles calm? Nope. But you're right about this patient. There's trauma in the left lobe.

Robin: You headed to the O.R.?

Patrick: Hey. Yeah. We're going to tandem a patient.

Lisa: I'm gonna go scrub now.

Patrick: Okay. I'm right behind you. I hear the E.R.’s insane.

Robin: Well, typical holiday. I needed a consult on a fractured skull, but it sounds like this guy needs you more.

Patrick: I don't know how long we'll be, but if you're done before me, I'll just meet you at home.

Robin: Oh, don't worry about me. But if it's really a long surgery, Happy New Year.

Patrick: Ohh... I love you.

Robin: I love you, too. Go save someone's life.

Patrick: Okay, I'll see you. Bye.

Robin: Bye.

Elizabeth: Careful of the steps.

Lucky: Oh! Okay, what's going on?

Elizabeth: Okay, hold on. Just be patient. Ta-da!

Lucky: Okay. This is beginning to feel familiar.

Elizabeth: I really wanted to take you to Luke’s club, but since it's now a print shop, this was the next best thing. And if my memory serves me correctly, way back when we were too young for champagne, so, uh, root beer, anyone?

Lucky: Yes, I've come full circle, haven't I? "Enjoy. Don't forget our deal. Coleman." What, did you blackmail him?

Elizabeth: No.

Lucky: No?

Elizabeth: No. More like bribery.

Lucky: Oh, okay. So, are we having ribs and cheese fries?

Elizabeth: I'm so glad you remembered.

Lucky: Of course I remember. It was one of the best nights of my life. Even though I was extremely nervous.

Elizabeth: No, you weren’t.

Lucky: Yeah, I was. Here, let me get your coat.

Elizabeth: Thanks.

Lucky: You think I was always this suave, sophisticated guy? I was terrified.

Elizabeth: I was the one who was terrified. And flattered, that you went through so much trouble for me.

Lucky: Yeah, I melted the cheese to pour on the fries and made a mess of everything. But you know what? None of that mattered. Because when I asked you to be my girl, you said yes.

Elizabeth: Actually, I believe what I said was, I already was your girl. And I still am.

Mac: You know, I would have been happy to drive.

Alexis: Oh, I like driving. That way, it'll keep me from drinking something that makes me act like a middle-aged woman having a menopausal seizure.

Mac: Mm, that is hot, Alexis.

[Alexis chuckles]

Mac: You know, I do kind of like the, uh, former buttoned-down D.A. letting her hair down, kicking off her shoes.

Alexis: Well, I hope you got a good look, 'cause that's not gonna happen again.


Alexis: Oh! What was that?

Mac: What?


Alexis: That.

Mac: Why? Has it ever happened before?

Alexis: No.

Mac: It's happened now.

[Rattle, thunk]

Kristina: For a minute, I thought my mom was gonna turn down Mr. Scorpio.

Kiefer: Well, worse things can happen. She thought I came here to take you out, and she would have let us go out, too.

Kristina: My mom has never let me go out on New Year’s Eve.

Kiefer: But this year, you have a boyfriend, and your mom likes me.

Kristina: Where would you have taken me?

Kiefer: My house. My parents are gone for the weekend, so we would have the whole place to ourselves. We could do it in every room.

Kristina: Instead, we get to baby-sit my sister.

Kiefer: I don't mind. Molly's a cute kid. Besides, all I care about is being with you.

Kristina: You mean that? That's so sweet.

Kiefer: Every once in a while I get it right. Maybe that makes up for the times I screw up. I really want you to be able to trust me.

Kristina: I do. I would have hated it if we couldn't be together tonight.

Molly: You guys are so making out.

Kristina: Molly!

Molly: What?!

Mac: Okay, try the ignition.

Alexis: Okay, I don't want to be argumentative, but it's not an ignition. This car has a button.

Mac: Okay, push the button.

Alexis: Okay.


Mac: Anything?

Alexis: Mm-mmm. You know, this car has been very reliable in the past. So, uh, okay, you know what? Why don't I just have a look?

Mac: Sure, Alexis, why don't-- come here. Take a look.

Alexis: Okay.

Mac: Take a look.

Alexis: Okay, okay.

Mac: What do you see?

Alexis: I have no idea what any of this is.

Mac: Exactly. It might as well be a jet engine.

Alexis: What's a jet engine?

Mac: You know, back in the day, I could look at the battery cables or the starter or the carburetor, something, but this--I don't have a clue. I mean, hybrids are bad for the male ego.

Alexis: All right. I know that it says in here somewhere that there's some sort of an internal computer--why don't we just call Spinelli?

Mac: No. No, we're not gonna call Spinelli. The day he can fix a car before I can... go back in. Let me try something. Go on. Be careful.

Alexis: Macho man. Okay. Okay.

Mac: All right, that should do it. Try it.


Mac: Try it again.

[Click click click]

Mac: Well, press it, don't poke it.


Matt: [Sighs] It's a crazy night.

Robin: And they say you're not observant.

Matt: Didn't you have plans with Patrick?

Robin: Yes, but duty calls. He's in surgery right now with Lisa, being brilliant.

Matt: Yeah. And, um, that doesn't bother you at all?

Robin: Well, yeah, uh, I'm bummed we're not celebrating at the Metro Court, but, you know, it comes with the territory.

[Matt sighs]

Matt: Ahem.

Robin: What?

Matt: Does denial also come with that same territory? Look, whatever attraction that Lisa had for Patrick in college, it's still there, believe me, I know, firsthand. And now they have even more in common. I mean, they're in there right now as we speak doing surgery together.

Robin: Because they're doctors.

Matt: [Sighs] Okay. I'm just saying, you've been warned.

Lisa: Hello, doctors. No applause, please. Just send money.

Robin: Oh, surgery went well?

Patrick: Another notch on the belt, so I don't have to say, right? We rocked it.

Lisa: Yeah.

Spinelli: The brusque lady of justice's latest trip to Philadelphia exposes no expenditures of a romantic nature. No manly trinkets or other tokens of affection, no excessive bar bills, no suspicious hotel charges, and her expense report indicates that all meals are accounted for.

Max: Hmm. What does that mean?

Maxie: It means if Diane were seeing a man, he would be buying her meals. Unless he were just a boy toy, and then she would be buying his. But that would mean her bills would be higher.

Spinelli: Ms. Miller either ate by herself or paid for herself, neither of which is an indication of infidelity.

Max: No, no, keep looking.

Spinelli: I'm sorry, but what drives these suspicions?

Max: Sometimes a man just knows.

[Knock on door]

Maxie: Oh.

Diane: Spinelli, I'm sorry. I know it's New Year’s Eve, but I have to confirm a wire transfer for Corinthos-Morgan-- Max, what are you doing here?

Max: Nothing. Uh, just writing a check for the boss.

Diane: Well, shouldn't you be picking me up for our date in... 10 minutes ago?

Max: Yes, well, uh... you weren't there, are you? Because you're here working. You're always working. You never have time for anything but work or people that you meet at work in Philadelphia.

Diane: What's gotten into you?

Maxie: Oh, God.

Diane: Max Giambetti, what are you doing?

Max: I'm getting proof you cheated on me.

Lucky: I think I know how you pulled this off.

Elizabeth: Really? This ought to be good. Please tell me.

Lucky: New Year's is always a big night for Jake’s, and every year just before closing, uh, someone's who's drunk picks a fight with someone else who's drunk, and the P.D. has to shut him down. So Coleman decided to skip the drinking and the fighting and the cops and just jump right to the shutting down. How's that? That close?

Elizabeth: It was a good story, but no, it's not close.

Lucky: No? Aw...

Elizabeth: It was a combination of good timing and decent luck. Guess Sonny's pretty upset that one of the bartenders here served liquor to Michael.

Lucky: Yeah, I told you, I was the one that drove him home.

Elizabeth: I know. So I thought it would be a good idea if I just asked Coleman if I could have a place for you and me. And he said yeah, that it would be great to shut down the place for the evening. And he wants to spend the night with Kate Howard. I guess they had plans over Christmas and she flaked on him and flew to Switzerland.

Lucky: Amazing. Now tell me how you bribed him. Come on, Elizabeth. I know you made a deal. Look, it's right here in black and white.

Elizabeth: Okay, okay, okay. I... I sort of implied that I had a little pull with a certain detective, and if all goes well, then I might be able to convince him not to cite Jake’s for serving a minor.

Lucky: Are you compromising my integrity, ma'am?

Elizabeth: Oh, no, sir.

Lucky: You sure? 'Cause it would be a little disconcerting to find out that my fiancée was sneaking around behind my back and I didn't have a clue.

Lucky: It's okay. I was just joking.

Elizabeth: I know. I've taken you for granted.

Lucky: Well, it happens when two people know each other as well as we do.

Elizabeth: Yeah, but I shouldn’t. And that's why I did this for you tonight, to show you how much I love you. Because nothing makes me prouder or gives me more hope and joy than being your girl.

Lucky: All of my best memories...all of the happiest days of my life have you in them.

Elizabeth: I promise to never disappoint you again. We're gonna play some pool.

Lucky: [Laughs] You don't know how to play.

Elizabeth: Oh, but I've been practicing. So are you up for it or not?

Lucky: Oh, I'm up for it. I just don't know if it's gonna be a fair fight.

Elizabeth: Why don't you put your money where your mouth is?

Lucky: Okay. 20 bucks says not enough practice in the world could make you be able to beat me.

Elizabeth: [Laughs] How about we make it a little more interesting and say if I win, you owe me dinner for a week?

Lucky: If my cooking's your reward, you might want to aim a little higher.

Elizabeth: Who said anything about you cooking? You can take me out or order in. I don't care as long as I don't have to cook.

Lucky: And what if I win?

Elizabeth: Well, then, you get your New Year's present.

Lucky: We don't give New Year’s...presents, so...

Elizabeth: Just shut up and break.

Lucky: Okay.

Diane: You are spying on me? And you are helping him? I am hurt and I am betrayed--

Spinelli: Okay, stop! I must warn you not to utter words that could imperil your relationship.

Maxie: Don't be silly, Spinelli. It's important that they get this all out in the open. And you need to express how upset you are, and Diane needs to make amends for her transgressions.

Diane: Diane needs to do no such thing.

Maxie: Trust me, Diane, the only way this is gonna be okay for Max is if you give him a free pass to fool around.

Max: What?

Diane: That's absurd!

Maxie: Not a lot. Just one time. With like a real hottie.

Diane: I have no intention of giving my blessing for Max to sleep with another woman. Not that floozy dancer at Jake’s, not the chirpy little barista at the coffeehouse, and certainly not Louise Addison, she of the bad shoes.

Spinelli: Because of the great love that the brusque lady of justice feels for the protector of the night, correct?

Diane: No! Because I never cheated on him.

Molly: Ha ha ha!

Kristina: You are so dead!

Molly: Please! There's nothing wrong with kissing! Stop, please, no! No!

Kristina: If you ever spy on me again, I swear I will kill you.

Molly: Why are you acting so stupid? There's nothing wrong with kissing.

Kristina: It's none of your business.

Kiefer: Okay, okay, everybody chill. Molly's cool, right? Yeah, I think she's mature enough to get that we just wanted to spend some time alone together, right?

Molly: Thank you. It's not all about you, you know. I just wanted to get some more popcorn while I watch a movie in my room.

Kiefer: Okay. Take this. We'll make more if we want some.

Molly: Thank you, Kiefer.

Kiefer: No problem. Enjoy your movie.

[Molly making kissing sounds]

Kristina: [Sighs] I'm so sorry.

Kiefer: I don't care, really.

Kristina: Oh--not with Molly in the other room.


Alexis: Please don't hurt yourself. I have no way of getting you to the hospital. I just hung up with the auto club.

Mac: Did they say how long?

Alexis: Yeah. 10 minutes to 2 hours. I'm so sorry, Mac.

Mac: Don't worry. It's not your fault. It's okay.

Alexis: I don't blame you at all for being upset about this.

Mac: Relax. It's okay.

Alexis: Well, I insisted on taking my car and driving, so...

Mac: You know, I was just, uh, I was just thinking about the first car I ever owned. There was this movie, "Bullitt," and there was this car.

Alexis: I know that car. It's the green mustang.

Mac: Oh, yeah. 1968. GT-390, fastback V8. Oh, man, that was one hell of a muscle car. Only mine was red. You know, like a neon light. You have no idea how many speeding tickets the police popped me for. I can't believe you know about that car.

Alexis: Well, I don't really care about the car. I just like Steve McQueen.

Mac: Maybe one of the coolest movie heroes ever.

Alexis: Where's the car?

Mac: It went out in a blaze of glory. But I'm still standing.

Alexis: [Laughing] I'm sorry.

Diane: I can't believe you would embarrass me like this.

Max: You told me you met someone.

Diane: That's crazy!

Max: He's been emailing you. Hmm?

Diane: You've been reading my emails?

Max: Never. I don't have your access codes. But I saw his name in your inbox. Russell.

Diane: [Laughing] Russell is the name of the paralegal that was assigned to me in Philadelphia.

Max: Yeah, the new man you met in Philadelphia.

Diane: I am not having an affair with Russell. He's happily married.

Max: Oh, well. Married people have been known to fool around.

Diane: To another man. Russell is gay.

Max: Really? Well, you could have told me that. I'm very open-minded.

Diane: I shouldn't have to tell you anything. I spent every night alone in my hotel room, trolling the internet for the most romantic fly fishing spots. Not a lot. Just so's you know. And dreaming about being there with you, you big galoot. While you were off playing hero to Louise Addison.

Max: I hardly know Ms. Addison.

Diane: You saved her life.

Max: Because she happened to be standing next to me when Mr. Q broke through the barrier. All right? She came to visit me once at the hospital, I haven't seen her since.

Diane: You didn't call me once in Philadelphia.

Max: A man has his pride. I just can't roll over when his woman's cheating on him.

Diane: I wasn't cheating on you!

Max: I guess all is forgiven. hate fly fishing.

Diane: But you don't, fancy pants. Ohh...

Maxie: Wow, that's great, you two. Congratulations. Um, Spinelli and I have our own issues we need to work on now. So Happy New Year. Have a good night.

Spinelli: Surely Maximista can see how misunderstandings get blown out of--

Maxie: Spinelli, stop stalling, okay? You heard Max. You need to restore your pride and your dignity, your...manhood.

Kristina: Whoo. If Molly saw us doing anything, she'd tell my mom and I'd be grounded for life.

Kiefer: You know, it's so great how you just always come up with some excuse not to be with me.

Kristina: I want to, but not tonight, not here.

Kiefer: Not anywhere. Let's see, the last time I arranged for a place that we could be alone, you came up with some lame excuse. The time before that, you canceled last-minute. You always think of something.

Kristina: I couldn't help it.

Kiefer: All I think about is you and me being together. Obviously you don't feel the same way.

Kristina: That's not true.

Kiefer: Then how come every time I touch you, you jump away?

Kristina: Sometimes I just don't feel like it.

Kiefer: Well, if you really cared, that would never happen. You'd want to be with me all the time. You're either too hung up, too immature, or you're a total tease.

Kristina: I do care about you. I always have.

Kiefer: All right. You don't want a boyfriend. Okay? You don't even know what to do with a guy. Except maybe that Ethan. 'Cause you wouldn't mind sleeping with him.

Kristina: It's not like that.

Kiefer: No, yeah, it's just like that. You know, I'm over it.

[Door slams]

[Mac sighs]

Alexis: They're not gonna be here for another hour.

Mac: At least we're not gonna freeze to death.

Alexis: You know, the nicer you are, the more guilty I feel. Hey, why don't you use your rank and call the service vehicle people thing.

Mac: I can't use my rank. That would be an abuse of power. Are you asking me to do something unethical, Alexis?

Alexis: Yes. I have to confess something. I wanted to drive on purpose so that I would have control over the evening and that if I wanted to leave, we could just leave. So, you, know, I'm a bit of a control freak.

Mac: No, really? I don't believe that.

Alexis: I'm just--I'm working on it, you know. I'm reading a lot of books.

Mac: Oh, good. Good. Good luck.

Alexis: I mean, I just don't see why it--you know, would it seem more like a "date" if I just let you drive? I mean, what's the big deal?

Mac: What's the big deal?

Alexis: God, I'm insufferable.

Mac: Mm-hmm.

Alexis: Why do you even want to hang out with me?

Mac: Why do I want to hang out with you?

Alexis: I mean, if I weren't so stubborn, we'd be at the Metro Court right now.

Mac: Why do I want to hang out with you?

Alexis: Really.

Mac: Well, we're not at the Metro Court. Alexis, come on, what's the big deal, you know? I mean, can you remember what you did last New Year’s Eve? Or any New Year’s Eve, for that matter?

Alexis: No, I don't remember.

Mac: Right. Neither do I. So this one might be special this year. Think about it. Come on, you can tell people about the night you drove your car, your special car, and it broke down in the freezing cold, in the middle of nowhere. You can skip the part about your date being mechanically inept, but maybe you can tell them about, uh, how, uh, they danced under the moonlight at midnight, doing the lambada.

Alexis: Oh, boy. [Laughing]

Mac: The waltz? The, uh... the jitterbug. Let's do the jitterbug. What is that you're doing?

Alexis: [Laughing] The frug.

Mac: The frug? Let's do the frug.

Alexis: Yeah, that'll be cute.

Mac: I don't even know the frug.

Patrick: Isn't the last patient supposed to be the easiest?

Epiphany: They're never easy.

Patrick: Patient's in recovery. I'll check on him in the morning, all right?

Epiphany: Two miracles in one night. That's impressive, even for you, Drake Junior.

Patrick: Thank you, Epiphany, but stick a fork in me. I'm done.

Lisa: You don't fool me, Drake. There's no high like surgery. Who's next?

Patrick: No, no, no. Robin is next. I haven't seen my wife all evening. By the way, have you seen her anywhere?

Epiphany: I can't say that I have.

Lisa: Maybe she went home.

Patrick: I don't think so. Pretty good idea where she is. Happy New Year's, ladies. See you next year.

Elizabeth: Ohh! [Laughs]

Lucky: Don't say you weren't warned.

Elizabeth: Well, I really had you on the ropes for a while, huh?

Lucky: Hey, I know you weren't thinking you were actually gonna win.

Elizabeth: Oh, maybe.

Lucky: Okay, so, what's this, uh, so-called present that you've threatened me with?

Elizabeth: Oh, I'm so excited! Wait. Surprise!

Lucky: Is that--that's my old guitar case.

Elizabeth: Uh-huh.

Lucky: Where did you find it?

Elizabeth: In your attic. I thought it was time I dug it out.

Lucky: The attic? What were you doing up there? Man, I haven't seen this in years. It's crazy. What-- did you get new strings?

Elizabeth: The guy at the music shop said whoever owned it took beautiful care of it.

Lucky: Really?

Elizabeth: And I remembered how much you loved to play and how much I loved to listen to you.

Lucky: What would I do without you?
