Carly: Ava, this is a bad time.
Ava: Oh, I -- I don't want to impinge on the schedule of a dabbling hotelier. You off to write the specials on the menu board?
Carly: I'm off to take Morgan a care package.
Ava: He's in my thoughts. And don't worry, you'll be gone momentarily. I just need enough time to get my baby girl and go.
Jason: What's the big deal? They're pictures.
Sam: No, no. It is a big deal. Jason, these are yours. These were on the mantel of your penthouse for years.
Jason: Uh...are you sure?
Sam: Yes. I'm sure. I would recognize these pictures anywhere. I thought they were gone, and they found their way back to you.
Dr. Obrecht: Some light reading? Or are you branching out into illustrations for children's literature?
Franco: Hardly. This is Helena Cassadine's work.
Dr. Obrecht: Ach du lieber. I wouldn't read a grocery list written by that woman, not without a priest's blessing first. What are you doing with that?
Franco: I'm doing a favor for a friend, not to mention reminding myself that I don't ever, ever, ever want to have children.
Maxie: I think someone's sabotaging Crimson.
Dillon: Sabotage? As in, like, actively trying to ruin Crimson?
Maxie: As in our first issue came out completely green and our second one arrived in pieces. What are the odds?
Julian: Odds of what?
Nina: There's a malevolent fashion-hating force out to destroy Crimson.
Sonny: Kristina, whatever it is that you're keeping from your mother and me, it's time to tell us now.
Kristina: I don't know what you're talking about.
Sonny: Yes, you do, and now so do I.
Sam: I don't know who originally bought these for you -- probably Carly. But when I first moved into the penthouse, these were on your mantel, and they stayed there for years.
Jason: How'd I lose track of them?
Sam: I'm not sure about that. Well, we broke up and then -- oh, Maxie -- she redecorated your place.
Jason: Maxie -- Maxie Jones?
Jason: Maxie Jones. She was redecorating my place?
Sam: Well, her and Spinelli, they were in love. Spinelli lived with you. I don't know if you remember that. Anyway, Maxie probably thought it needed a woman's touch and she redecorated, not that you would've argued with her, because you didn't care about any of that stuff. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is when I came back, these were gone. And I'm glad that you found it again.
Jason: [Sighs] What do you think that means?
Dr. Obrecht: Since when did you come to this conclusion?
Franco: Since forever. When did I ever give you the impression that I wanted to have kids?
Dr. Obrecht: I suppose I drew the conclusion based on observing you with your young patients. You have an uncommon affinity for children.
Franco: Yeah. Maybe other people's fully formed children, perhaps. I don't know. It's hard to screw a kid up when you only see him once a week for an hour.
Dr. Obrecht: [Scoffs] Everyone thinks they will ruin their children. Only a few do. Even then, children bounce back. Just look at mine.
Franco: Here's what I know for sure. I'm not fit to be a father. I just wish I could convince Nina of the same fact.
Dr. Obrecht: I see where this is leading. My niece is back on the baby track.
Franco: Yeah, she is. But luckily, she already has a baby. As long as Crimson keeps her distracted, hopefully she'll stop pushing for another one.
Julian: Fashion-hating force is out to get Crimson. Is that right?
Nina: That's what Maxie thinks. I'm inclined to agree.
Julian: Because of a binding issue with the printer.
Maxie: This is not just a binding issue.
Dillon: Not a single copy is fit for sale.
Nina: Yeah, uh, we have to pull the entire run. The entire run. Doesn't that bother you, Julian? I-I know that Crimson's not close to your heart, but isn't it close to your wallet?
Julian: Okay, look. I understand and appreciate your passion for your work. But, like, you're letting all of this go to your heads. No one's out to ruin Crimson.
Maxie: I wouldn't be so sure about that. The fashion industry is kill-or-be-killed, and someone is out to get us.
Nina: Yeah. Who would benefit by the demise of Crimson?
Julian: Okay. [Scoffs] You all need to put the brakes on your paranoia. There's no evidence to suggest that somebody's trying to un-do all your hard work.
Maxie: Actually, that's, uh -- that's not true.
Ava: I'm taking Avery to see her sister.
Carly: Well, I mean, is Kiki up for that? Sonny told me she woke up, but... I mean, thank God. I just don't know --
Ava: She's weak, but she's coming back to us. I thought a visit from her little sister would raise her spirits, so... if you'll get out of my way.
Carly: Avery's asleep.
Ava: Is that the best you can do?
Carly: It's the truth.
Ava: I'll see for myself.
Kristina: Nothing is going on.
Sonny: Don't lie to me.
Alexis: Uh, hey. Hang on.
Kristina: Y-you don't get to barge in here and -- and attack me for no reason.
Sonny: First of all, I'm not attacking you. I'm just trying to help you. I can't do that if you don't tell me the truth.
Molly: I wish you just told them both when you had the chance!
Kristina: Shut up, Molly!
Sonny: Oh, so you can tell Molly, but you can't tell your parents what's going on.
Kristina: Because I thought she could keep her mouth shut. Because she's my sister and she's not gonna scream at me and judge me and automatically assume --
Alexis: Hold on. Hey! Hey! Enough! All right? Enough. No one say another word until someone can calmly, please, tell me what's going on.
Sonny: You gonna tell your mother what you're hiding?
Kristina: This is so unfair. Why are you doing this to me?
Sonny: You're not gonna tell your mother what you're hiding. All right. I'm gonna tell her. Kristina got kicked out of school.
Kristina: That's what... this is about?
Sonny: What do you think it's about?
Carly: Thank you for not waking Avery.
Ava: A cranky baby won't do Kiki any good. But Avery won't sleep forever. I will be back for her soon enough. And when I am, I expect that neither you nor Sonny will do anything to get in my way. Is that understood?
Carly: Avery's safe here. She's cared for. She's loved. She's thriving. Why are you so hell-bent on taking her away?
Ava: I have no intention of taking Avery away, but I do intend to take her home -- with me. Did you and Sonny get it into your heads that you would be keeping my Avery for good?
Sonny: What is going on, Kristina, besides getting thrown out of school?
Kristina: I wasn't thrown out. I was suspended for one semester, but I can go back in the fall if I want to.
Alexis: You were suspended?
Sonny: Sounds like she got kicked out to me.
Kristina: How dare you pry into my private life?
Sonny: You don't get a private life when you're accepting our money.
Kristina: Oh, so my education comes with strings?
Sonny: Well, if that's the way you want to look at it.
Alexis: You were suspended? What happened?
Kristina: Don't you have to meet Olivia at court?
Alexis: I have time. Talk to me.
Kristina: I know it sounds like a big deal, but it isn't.
Sonny: So it's not a big deal to get suspended, Kristina?
Kristina: I don't need you guys to get involved. I'm handling it.
Sonny: Lying and hiding out is not handling it. If you'd have come to us, we would've been able to deal with it the right way when the school brought the allegations.
Sonny: I didn't get all the details.
Kristina: That's because it's none of your business.
Sonny: Oh, really? There was an issue with a professor. She got accused of harassment and spreading false information.
Alexis: I'm sorry. Harassment?
Sonny: Well, you got to read between the lines. She didn't harass anybody. Some professor harassed her, came on to her. She didn't want to give in, so he turned the tables on her, right? Listen, sweetheart, it's not your fault. I know how these teachers can be. They get power, and they want to manipulate these students, and you did the right thing by standing up for yourself, and I'm proud of you. But what I don't like what you did is you took care of it yourself. Let me fix it.
Kristina: What do you mean? What are you going to do?
Sonny: I'm gonna straighten out this professor.
Kristina: Okay, no, Dad. Stop it.
Sonny: I'm gonna make sure he never victimizes another student again.
Kristina: But I'm not the victim!
Sonny: I don't care what this scum told you! I'm gonna take care of him!
Kristina: Dad, stop! Stop! Stop! [Breathing shakily] Everything that the school said, the honor-code violation, the harassment, it's all true. It's my fault.
Julian: So, you have evidence of a saboteur.
Maxie: Yeah, I spoke with the printer right before they were about to run the real women issue, and he asked me if we wanted the same run as we got last time -- all green.
Maxie: So he made it sound like we intentionally instructed him to turn the entire magazine green, like that was our choice.
Dillon: We assumed that the file was corrupted, but maybe the printer was given specific instructions.
Nina: Right. Suspicious, isn't it?
Julian: Oh, could be a misunderstanding or possibly a joke.
Nina: [Breathes deeply]
Maxie: Haute couture -- not a laughing matter.
Julian: Okay, so what's more likely to be true? That Crimson is a victim of a failure in communication or a mysterious third party trying to take it down?
Nina: Wait, wait. What are you talking about? This is not a failure in communication. It happened twice.
Dillon: Okay, I can think of one way to figure this out. We call the printer, we ask if he was given specific orders, and if so, whose.
Olivia: Oh, my God. Thank God. Dr. Obrecht, can you please help me? I was already down in the ER, but I'm not bleeding out of my eyes, so God knows when they're gonna see me, and I'm really in a rush.
Dr. Obrecht: What is problem? It is not little Leo.
Olivia: Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Leo's fine. Leo's fine. It's me. I'm covered in hives. I assumed that it's nerves, because I got to testify against the mayor today, but whatever it is, I cannot get up on the stand scratching myself like I got poison ivy at summer camp.
Dr. Obrecht: Say no more. I'll do anything to facilitate an end to Mayor Lomax's anti-woman hysteria.
Olivia: Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.
Dr. Obrecht: Give me Leo, and go into the exam room. Uh -- he'll be in the way.
Olivia: Are you --
Dr. Obrecht: I'll send him to the daycare, and you can pick him up after.
Olivia: Okay. Uh, okay.
Dr. Obrecht: Come on.
Olivia: I'll see you -- see you in a minute, sweetie.
Dr. Obrecht: I'll be right in. [Clears throat]
Franco: What's going on? What are you doing? What are you doing?
Dr. Obrecht: Giving you an assignment. Practice with little Leo here. 10 minutes with a baby. Not even you can screw that up.
Nina: Okay, so, I'm gonna call them.
Julian: Okay, Nina, just hold on a second, okay? I have had a relationship with these printers for many years. I'll call them. Okay? They're more likely to tell me the truth.
Julian: Yeah, Arthur. Hey, uh, Julian Jerome. Listen, I'm standing here with my staff from Crimson, and we're discussing the product that we just received. Yeah, well, they're pretty upset about it. You know, there's a feeling that the binding issue is a result of a request, not an accident. Now, look, Arthur, you and I have known each other for many years, and I know you wouldn't risk our business relationship over this. So I need to know if this was a mistake. Right. [Sighs] Thanks, Arthur.
Nina: What'd he say?
Julian: Just like I thought. It was a mistake.
Maxie: A mistake? Is he positive?
Julian: Look, Maxie, I know it's a letdown. It's just an unfortunate mistake. Hey, but, look, there's enough money left in the budget for one more issue.
Nina: Wait a second. One more issue?
Julian: Yeah, farewell to Crimson. Why don't you just go home, relax, get some rest? We'll come back tomorrow, and we'll send Crimson out on a high note. I know you'll make it a good one.
Dillon: [Scoffs] So, that's it? Crimson only has one issue left?
Nina: You guys can leave if you want. I'm staying. I haven't yet begun to fight.
Franco: Leo, huh? Why would your mother name you that? There was a famous artist once. His name was Leo. He was way ahead of his time. Leonardo made all these cool drawings and paintings, all these wacky illustrations of the cool inventions. And another way that Leonardo was way ahead of his time is that he never had children. And I doubt that he had a girlfriend that was pestering him to have a child 24/7. Although, there's a high probability that he was gay. And, you know, gay people have kids all the time. [Sighs] I've gotten off the subject here, haven't I? I don't think I'm gonna be a good father. I don't. Did you hear me? And don't judge me, all right? 'Cause you don't know me. I know I'm a little stressed. [Clears throat] Here's the thing. I really loved when I thought that Kiki was my child, and, you know, my time with Avery, that was really great, you know, as long as that lasted. And you and I? We're getting along pretty good, aren't we? Yeah.
[Cell phone ringing]
Franco: Maybe I could get a hang of this father thing after all. Well. Okay. [Chuckles] Um... all right, you got to -- just -- hold on one second, okay? I got to take this. All right. Sit tight.
Franco: Maybe you better actually sit tight. There you go. One minute. Don't go anywhere. [Sighs] Hello?
Nina: Bad news. There's an emergency at Crimson. I'm gonna be home late tonight.
Nina: Yeah, again. It couldn't be helped.
Franco: [Scoffs] Uh, okay. Um, yeah. All right, take your time. But do me a favor. Save me some time, all right? Because you and I -- I need to talk to you.
Nina: Okay. Um, see you later.
Franco: You know, I'm willing to bet that you would drop everything for your theoretical child. Leo?! Yeah.
Jason: It can't be a coincidence that I picked the same pictures that used to be hanging in my house.
Sam: No, maybe part of you recognized them.
Jason: I don't know. You keep saying I'm not that different.
Sam: [Chuckles] You have the same heart and the same soul.
Sam: You've got the same depth and decency. You know, all the things that...drew me to you then are drawing me to you now.
Jason: You know, this is really frustrating. I keep thinking that, uh... I'm gonna get used to not remembering anything, but then I see these. I mean, how can I pick out some pictures and not remember the important things, like you and me? Huh? I mean, what if I don't remember anything?
Ava: Are you and Sonny truly so deluded that you thought that I would give you custody of Avery for good?
Carly: Not deluded -- hopeful. Hopeful that you would make the right call for Avery.
Ava: Oh. The right call being that I relinquish my baby to a man who's made no secret of his desire to personally see me dead and buried?
Carly: Oh, really? Oh, come on.
Ava: Now, Sonny's murderous aspirations aside, you tell me, how should I react when someone tries to take one of my children? How would you? Would you not fight them with everything you had?
Carly: I would like to think that I would put my kids' best interests first, that their safety and their happiness was more important than mine.
Ava: Well, Carly, a judge decided that Avery is safest and happiest with me.
Carly: And that judge is gonna be singing a different tune when he finds out that your business nearly killed Kiki.
Sonny: Don't blame yourself-- you didn't do anything.
Kristina: But I did. Just listen to me.
Alexis: We are. Just calm down and tell us.
Kristina: [Breathes deeply] School got really dismal after my breakup. I couldn't really pay attention in class, not that I was going that much. [Breathing shakily] Things were so bad that I was on the verge of flunking out, and I had this one class that I needed to pass, so I went to my professor.
Alexis: To get help?
Kristina: Not like what you think. [Sighs] I... offered...sex in exchange for a passing grade.
Kristina: I mean...not that that got me anywhere. But I-I didn't let it stop there. I-I-I kept pushing, and then... [Breathes shakily] And then at some point, the professor went to the [Sighs] The ethics committee, and... and that's when I got suspended. [Voice breaking] It was a stupid -- it was a stupid -- it was stupid! [Crying] It was [Sobbing] It was a horrible, horrible thing, and I was an idiot for letting things get so out of hand. I panicked. I j-- I just -- God! I panicked. I was afraid of what you would think of me if I failed -- again. [Sobbing] [Sniffles] And now, I mean, I'm not even in school anymore, so who knows what you think of me now? I mean, say something, please.
Sonny: W-what -- I don't -- I don't know what you want me to say. That it -- that... that it's okay that your mother and I gave you an opportunity that we worked so hard for, that I'd never had, and you just threw it away, sweetheart.
Kristina: I know.
Sonny: Do you want me to say I'm not disappointed? Because if I said those things, I'd be lying.
Nina: Okay! All right, all right. So, put your thinking caps on. We got to figure out a way to salvage something from this real women issue. Or else...Julian is gonna be forced to put Crimson to bed. Let's go. Come on, guys. Don't leave me hanging. Please. Please.
Dillon: I don't want to -- not at all. I mean, I love coming to work with you and with Maxie. I don't want Crimson to fold, but I just -- I don't see another way out of this.
Nina: Yeah, but that's what we thought before. We thought that before, didn't we, Dillon? And, look -- look. We turned it around.
Maxie: Nina, then we had a product to offer, even if it was all green. And now we just have a pile of pages. I mean, what are we supposed to do? [Chuckling] Pay people to put the magazines together one at a time? [Chuckling]
Nina: I see. Yeah. Yeah. Yes, Maxie, that's exactly what we're gonna do.
Franco: Liesl, hey, um... have you seen Leo?
Dr. Obrecht: I left him with you.
Franco: Yeah, I know. I know that part. He kind of wandered off.
Dr. Obrecht: You lost him? He can't even walk.
Franco: I put him in a laundry cart and I turned my back, and when I turned back, no cart, no kid.
Dr. Obrecht: You put a baby in a laundry cart?
Franco: A nice, comfy laundry curt with clean, soft towels. Yes, I did. And I can't believe that you did this!
Dr. Obrecht: Me?!
Franco: Yeah, you. You handed me a baby! What did you think was gonna happen?
Olivia: Dr. Obrecht?
Sam: Well, I thought I would never see you again, so having you back in some capacity is a gift.
Jason: Yeah, some gift. I don't remember anything.
Sam: I miss our marriage. And our family -- the life that we built together. Okay, I'm gonna have to be honest with myself, so I'm gonna be honest with you. I am...falling for you all over again. And I don't know where I'm gonna land, and I don't know who either one of us are gonna be when I do, but I... I think I'm gonna give it a shot.
Jason: You do? Good. 'Cause so do I.
Sam: [Chuckles] Wait. Wait, wait. There's --
Jason: "Wait"? What do you mean, "Wait"?
Sam: There's just -- there's one thing stopping me from moving forward.
Jason: Okay. What's that?
Sam: Okay. Our marriage.
Sam: I want a divorce.
Ava: Is that your plan? To seize upon Kiki's ordeal and try to paint me as some kind of unfit parent?
Carly: Those gun crates were addressed to the Jerome gallery.
Ava: And yet the shooting can be traced right back to your very own house.
Carly: Don't even try it, Ava.
Ava: Now, of course, neither of us wants to dredge that up. But, of course, the topic would arise should you and Sonny pursue that line of attack, which, by the way, would be utterly fruitless.
Ava: I'm a hero. I was in on the sting from the start. I'm an upstanding citizen helping the feds.
Carly: That's the lie the DA told to cover your ass. You knowingly put yourself and your children in the path of violent gunrunners. Does that mean nothing to you? Does seeing Kiki lying in the ICU not give you pause? My God, is it not time to stop wading through blood and to find another way to move forward?
Ava: As you and Sonny have? I'll be careful not to disturb the armed guard on my way out. Chocolate. I-I-I hope -- there's chocolate in that care package for Morgan. I know that Morgan likes chocolate.
Carly: You would know that after your inappropriate relationship with my son after you screwed your daughter over. Oh, yeah, Ava, you're mother of the year.
Kristina: I didn't mean for things to turn out this way. Things just -- they just got out of control. I wish I could do it all over again.
Sonny: So do I.
Molly: Don't talk to my sister like that.
Alexis: Molly. Molly.
Molly: As if you've never made a mistake or failed to meet someone's expectations, Uncle Sonny? You know, how about we ask Michael or anyone with the last name Quartermaine if you've lived a perfect life.
Sonny: Molly, I don't want a perfect daughter. I want your sister to have a better life than I had, to make better choices than I did. And I don't -- you know, I don't think missing school and demeaning yourself with this guy is the kind of life that you want. Right, sweetheart?
Kristina: Of course not.
Sonny: All right. Then we're just gonna get her back in school.
Kristina: I don't know if I can go back there.
Sonny: I'll talk to the guy in charge. I'll do what I have to do. It doesn't matter.
Alexis: You know what? Let's just think about this later.
Sonny: But she's already missed a whole semester.
Alexis: It's already half over.
Kristina: Maybe, maybe not, but can we please just stop talking about this?
Sonny: I still don't understand why you wouldn't want to go back to school.
Kristina: Because I don't! People who know... what they want and where they're going and who they are, you know, those people are lucky. They don't know what it feels like to have questions about... who they're supposed to be or what they're supposed to do. I wish I had those answers, but I don't. About anything.
Sonny: Listen to me. Come here.
Alexis: Come on.
Sonny: No, I'm just trying to make it right with --
Alexis: Just stop. Just stop.
Sonny: Kristina, we're gonna talk about this later. Okay, sweetheart?
Kristina: [Sighs] [Sniffles] [Sobbing]
Franco: Leo?! Bad baby running off like that. Claudia.
Nina: This is genius! It's totally gonna work.
Maxie: Nina, I don't know if you understand how much time it will take to assemble enough Crimson issues to sell, and the cost of labor would be --
Nina: The labor is free. The readers will do it.
Maxie: Wait, what?
Nina: The readers are gonna do it. We're gonna run a contest. The first 15 -- no, the first 20 readers who deliver a completely compiled issue of the real women issue of Crimson -- they will get $1,000. We're gonna advertise it on the web and on social media. It's gonna be incredible! It's gonna be called -- what -- what do we call it? We call it the real women, real cash contest.
Dillon: Mm... so, you want to do this in every major market? Won't we lose money?
Nina: Well, yeah, I mean, you know, we're gonna lose money in the beginning, of course. But people are gonna go wild. They'll go wild, and, um, the publicity is priceless. And then we can buy our time for the second run.
Maxie: Okay. How will we get the pages out to people? We just drop piles at the newsstand?
Nina: Um...no. We're not gonna be dropping anything at the newsstand. We're gonna be dropping it from the sky.
Dillon: Excuse me?
Nina: Yeah. We're gonna fly planes over our major markets and just drop pages down.
Dillon: All over the city.
Nina: No, not all over the city. You know, college campuses, places like that.
Dillon: That's littering on an industrial scale. Not exactly the best follow-up to our green issue.
Nina: We're not gonna be littering. We're gonna hire guys to clean it up. They're gonna wear Crimson T-shirts. We're actually, by this, helping the economy. This is win/win. Are you in?
Maxie: This is crazy. And I think it could work.
Nina: Give me human resources, please.
Franco: [Clears throat] I... I have some bad news.
Dr. Obrecht: Bad news? Surely it's nothing too dire.
Franco: Um... uh, we are out of red finger paint in the art therapy room. Must have used all of it for Valentine's Day and then forgot to reorder.
Olivia: I'm sure that was a real crisis.
Dr. Obrecht: Use this as needed to stop the itching. It will also reduce redness.
Olivia: Thank you. Thank you so much.
Dr. Obrecht: Give them hell in court.
Olivia: Will do.
Franco: [Sighs] Where was he?
Dr. Obrecht: In the daycare. A nurse with actual common sense took him there after finding him in the laundry cart. Fortuitously for us, when Olivia went looking for him, there he was, happily playing blocks.
Franco: No thanks to me.
Alexis: I know how much that hurt you, the things that your father said, but he didn't mean them deep down.
Kristina: Really? He doesn't think that I'm a disappointment?
Alexis: No. You are not a disappointment. We both want so much for you. He feels guilty, and so do I.
Kristina: It's not your fault. I kept it all from you.
Alexis: Well, I should have known that there was something this serious going on, and I at least should have given you the feeling that you could talk to me about anything.
Kristina: But you already dropped everything when Devon dumped me. I-I should have just... gotten over it.
Alexis: Kristina, is there -- was there anyone at school that you could talk to, that could help you? What about Professor Parker?
Kristina: What about her?
Alexis: It's clear that there is no independent study, Kristina. Why did Professor Parker come up here in January?
Molly: Parker and Kristina are friends. She was trying to help Kristina get back into school.
Alexis: I'd rather hear that from Kristina, Molly. Thank you. Is that true? Or is there something else you're not telling me?
Carly: Thank God. I was ready to send out a search party for you. What's wrong?
Sonny: I had a run-in with Kristina.
Carly: What happened?
Sonny: It's just too much to get into right now. Why are you all fired up to see me?
Carly: [Sighs] Uh, Ava stopped by.
Sonny: To see Avery?
Carly: To take Avery.
Sonny: She didn't take her, right?
Carly: No, no. Avery's upstairs. Thank God she was sleeping when Ava got here, and I convinced her to let Avery be.
Sonny: Kiki just woke up. I thought we'd have more time.
Carly: I know. She claimed that she just wanted to take Avery to visit Kiki. She made it very clear that she plans on taking Avery back, sooner rather than later.
Julian: Ava, I know you've had a lot on your plate, but you really should think about taking Avery back before Sonny and Carly make a case that you abandoned her.
Ava: Oh, no. I think they're already trying to make a case. Carly, professional mob wife -- she had the audacity to say that my involvement in that recent gun-running sting might cause a judge to give Sonny sole custody rather than me.
Julian: You? Concerned citizen, crime fighter?
Ava: [Chuckles] Yes. Right. Exactly. No judge will rule against the DA's prize witness. I'm insulated.
Julian: You still need to be careful.
Julian: What's that?
Ava: Uh, a nurse said that there was something here for Kiki, and this must be... it.
Julian: A black rose is never a good thing. Somebody gave that to Kiki?
Ava: Yeah. Uh, the card is addressed to Kiki, but... [Chuckles] ...The message is most definitely meant for me.
Dr. Obrecht: One sip to take the edge off, doctor's orders.
Franco: I'm telling you... when I saw that kid was missing, my whole life flashed in front of my eyes -- not just the life that I have, but the life I could have.
Dr. Obrecht: What do you mean?
Franco: I just mean that if I had a life with Nina and a baby, that it wouldn't last long. I'd find a way to screw it all up and lose them both.
Dr. Obrecht: Admittedly, today did not go well.
Franco: [Scoffs] Nope. I broke one of the primary rules of being a parent. Rule number one -- you don't lose the baby. I shouldn't even be allowed near a kid -- mine or anybody else's.
Nina: It's happening right now -- our newly commissioned Crimson Air Force is leafleting the skies over malls and college campuses. Soon, everyone is gonna be talking about Real Women.
Dillon: Or we'll be arrested.
Nina: Or both! [Laughs]
Julian: A black rose can mean a lot of things, none of them good. So, who would send that to Kiki?
Ava: Someone who wants to make a point to me. One of my lieutenants, maybe. I haven't been in contact with them since the gun deal went bust and Kiki was injured.
Julian: What does the card say?
Ava: "Dear Kiki, all of us at the gallery are so glad you're getting better. It's a good thing the police were there to save you. Your mother certainly knows how to pick her friends."
Julian: I guess your underlings didn't take too kindly to learn you'd thrown in with the DA. Look, Ava, your relationship with Hornsby may have saved you with the police, but not with your own people.
Sonny: Don't worry about Ava.
Carly: That's not possible, Sonny.
Sonny: I've been prepared for her to come by and try to take Avery, but you know what? I got it all covered.
Carly: Covered how?
Sonny: Don't worry about it. You don't have to lose sleep over it, 'cause I'm not. At least, there's -- you know, I got one girl I can protect.
Carly: Okay, come here. What's going on with Kristina?
Sonny: She's been lying to me, okay? And I have a feeling she still is.
Alexis: Honey... I hate to see you struggling like this. Please let me help you.
[Cell phone ringing]
Alexis: [Sighs] Alexis Davis.
Olivia: It's Olivia. What is the holdup? I'm here at the Court, and the place is crawling with reporters. I need you.
Alexis: Uh, I know. I'll be right there. I have to go.
Kristina: Yeah, I'm gonna -- I'm gonna go lie down... for a bit. Good luck in court.
Alexis: Thank you. [Sighs] Keep an eye on her.
Molly: I will. Good luck. [Smooches]
Jason: You want a divorce?
Sam: Yeah, we already had the papers drawn up, remember? We worked out the custody agreement with Danny and the settlement. All you have to do is sign.
Jason: Okay, I-I need you to back up just a little bit, because I'm having a real hard time understanding this. We were just having a conversation, right, about the two of us. It was going really well, right? And now you're just slamming on the brakes?
Sam: No, I didn't say that.
Jason: Yes, you did. You said you want a divorce.
Sam: Yes, I do. I don't -- I don't -- I don't mean it like that. I just -- I don't want to live in the past of what we had and compare it to what we have now. I don't think it's fair to put that kind of pressure on us. I'm not saying that we have to wipe the slate completely clean. It just -- I think it might be easier and more fun to start over.
Jason: More fun to start over?
Sam: [Chuckles] What do you say?
Jason: Well... when you put it like that, you got yourself a divorce.
On the next "General Hospital" --
Alexis (to Diane): This is an abuse-of-power case, and we will prove that.
Curtis (to Valerie): I think you might be a little overdressed for what I had in mind.
Maxie (to Nina): So, who benefits from shutting Crimson down?
Sonny (to Carly): Ava's gonna realize that Avery's better off here with us.
Julian (to Ava): You're a dead woman walking.
