Hayden: Finn.

Finn: Hey.

Hayden: Hey. I got here as -- as fast as I could. I had to do some fancy footwork with the police upstairs, but I managed to sneak in your stuff. Looks like I'm just in time. Do you want me to do it?

Finn: No. I, uh -- I think I can do this one myself. [Breathing heavily] [Sighs]

Laura: Spencer, honey, are you sure you don't want to order some lunch?

Kevin: Mmm! The waiter did say they had Dover sole for your fish sticks.

Laura: Ohh!

Spencer: Thank you for your concern. As much as I'd love to participate in your 4th of July luncheon, I must save room for the hot-dog-eating contest.

Laura: I'm surprised that you're in such holiday spirit.

Spencer: I won't deny that it's difficult celebrating the birth of this great nation without Father, but I know he'd want me to soldier on.

Kevin: Well, Spencer, I have to say you are handling your loss very, very well.

Spencer: Thank you, Dr. Collins. It's a heavy, heavy burden made lighter by the support of my wonderful, wonderful family.

[Cassadine Island, Greece]

Ava: This is home?

Nikolas: This is what we refer to as the main villa. [Chuckles] [Sighs] It was built in the early part of the last century after the Cassadines fled Russia.

Ava: And there's nobody else here?

Nikolas: After my grandmother was gone, the staff has been dispatched to other locations. We've got the whole compound to ourselves.

Ava: As long as you're sure about that.

Nikolas: Trust me, no one is going to find us here.

Jason: How was the flight?

Sam: There was no flight.

Jason: What?

Sam: I decided not to leave.

Dillon: Oh, here.

Maxie: Ohh. Fingers crossed this graphic designer we're about to interview works out. We just need to fill that position at Crimson, and we will be unstoppable. I can't believe I tried to have a career outside of fashion publishing. That's where my home is, just like your home is behind a camera. Right, Dillon? Dillon.

Dillon: Huh? Sorry, what?

Maxie: Hi.

Dillon: Maxie, sorry.

Maxie: Welcome back. No, it's okay. I was just complimenting your never-wavering passion.

Dillon: Oh, thank you. Thanks.

Maxie: What's going on with you? [Gasps] It's worse than I thought.

Dillon: What is?

Maxie: You think I don't recognize your woe-is-me-I'm-having- girl-trouble face?

Dillon: Oh, yeah, I do not have a woe-is-me...

Maxie: [High-pitched] Mnh...

Dillon: Is it that bad?

Maxie: Like a visible panty line. So spill and tell me everything.

Kiki: This should be a good spot.

Morgan: Yeah.

Kiki: Nothing but sky.

Morgan: Yeah, we should get a great view of the fireworks from here. Oh, let me take -- Hey, Kiki, Happy Independence Day.

Kiki: I did something in honor of the holiday. Ta-da! Remember this?

Morgan: Uh, yeah, of course, I do.

Kiki: Oh, God, the scar.

Morgan: No, no, no, no, no. Kiki, Kiki, hey. Don't. It's --

Kiki: No. Nobody wants to look at this.

Morgan: No, no, no, no, no. It's -- It's -- It's really not bad. I mean, no one would even notice it. It's just the scar's there because of me. So...

Kiki: Come on. How many times do we have to do this? I did not get this scar because of you. I got the scar because some jackass shot me, okay? It wasn't your fault. And I don't blame you, so you better stop blaming yourself. Or... I'm gonna pack up my picnic, and I'm gonna leave.

Morgan: [Chuckles]

[Syringe clatters]

Finn: [Sighs]

Hayden: How did you do last night? Really?

Finn: I made it through the night. Because of you.

Nathan: Nurse Webber, thanks for coming in.

Elizabeth: I'm happy to help.

Nathan: I'm interviewing everyone who was on the floor last night, and here's what we know. Dr. Mayes' death has been ruled a homicide, and the ME has confirmed that he had Derisifol in his system, which seems to indicate that the killer is the same person who injected Lucas Jones.

Elizabeth: [Groans]

Nathan: And you were the one who found the body?

Elizabeth: Yeah, I was.

Nathan: Can you describe to me the circumstances?

Elizabeth: I had been assisting Dr. Mayes with a patient. I went back to check on the patient and found Dr. Mayes on the floor. No pulse, no respiration, uh... I immediately called for help and started CPR.

Nathan: And you were alone when this happened?

Elizabeth: I was... Until Franco showed up.

Dr. Obrecht: This is an outrage! One ill-mannered, foul-tempered neurologist is poisoned while the prime suspect, Dr. Finn, is in jail, and suddenly, we are all under suspicion?! Verdammt! [Sighs]

Franco: You get used to it. You're not used to it?

Dr. Obrecht: Alas, I know what you mean. With our histories... Franco, if you need an alibi, I'd be happy to say that the two of us were at dinner last night.

Franco: Well, thank you, Liesl. Are you saying that 'cause you're offering me an alibi, or because you want me to be your alibi?

Griffin: Does anyone know how long this interview's gonna take? I have patients to see.

Dr. Obrecht: As do we all, Dr. Munro.

Franco: Okay, it's a little weird that I'm the voice of reason, but aren't we worried, right, that there's a murderer lurking the hallways offing patients with no discernible motive?

Griffin: I think the motive seems pretty obvious to me.

Jason: Sam.

Sam: Yes?

Jason: What are you doing here? Huh?

Sam: Well...Mmm. I texted my mom and told her I was on my way home, and she told me not to worry about it. She had everything under control. Imagine that.

Jason: So you decided to stay here?

Sam: I did. And I called Monica to make sure Danny was okay. And he's enjoying his time with the Quartermaines.

Jason: Oh, are you sure? He probably doesn't even miss us, does he?

Sam: No, he will, if this takes too long. So I came back to help you.

Jason: Okay. Well, the sooner we find Nikolas and Ava, the sooner we can go home and see him.

Ava: Well, you Cassadines -- You don't really go in for understated, do you?

Nikolas: No, not really. Then again, I have seen photographs of our other places in Russia, and this place is a shack by comparison.

Ava: What's this?

Nikolas: That is the Cassadine family history.

Ava: Ah.

Nikolas: Ancestors brought it out of Russia. Don't read it before bed.

Ava: [Chuckles]

Nikolas: Everything you hear about my family is either true or sanitized for public consumption.

Ava: What about you?

Nikolas: You could call me the, uh, white sheep of the family.

Ava: Ah. And why is that? How did you turn out to be so, I don't know, for lack of a better word, good?

Nikolas: I staged my own murder, skipped town, letting everyone I love believe that I'm dead, including my mother. I don't know how good I am.

Ava: You do seem to have a streak of decency a mile wide. You know, when I was a little girl, like most girls, probably, I dreamt of being a princess. So I think I'm a little jealous of you. [Laughs]

Nikolas: [Chuckles] Don't be. All the wealth, power, family intrigue -- It all looks better on paper.

Ava: Mm. Oh, it does look better on paper.

Morgan: You'd really do that, huh? You just get up and leave me stranded on the 4th of July?

Kiki: Only if you insist on being all mopey and maudlin about crap that's over and can't change.

Morgan: I'm -- Why would I be mopey? It's a beautiful day. It's the 4th of July. We got a great view of the fireworks. I'm good.

Kiki: Good. Much better. Oh, um, earlier, when I put sunscreen on, I did not do a great job with my back. Would you mind getting the spots that I missed?

Morgan: Sure.

Kiki: [Sighs]

Morgan: This really is a great day. I can't think of anyone else I'd rather be here with.

[Kiki remembers kissing Dillon.]

Morgan: Done.

Kiki: Thank you.

Morgan: Yeah. My pleasure. Where are you going?

Kiki: I'll race you to the snack shack.

Morgan: Ohh. All right. [Grunts]

Dillon: Okay, as much as I appreciate your insight into my romantic troubles, I --

Maxie: So you don't appreciate it, but luckily for you, that doesn't matter to me.

Dillon: Aren't we here to interview a graphic designer? Where is she, anyways? I thought we would meet her for lunch.

Claudette: Excuse me. Maxie Jones?

Maxie: Yeah!

Claudette: C.J. Boland. Nice to meet you.

Maxie: Nice to meet you, too. And this is my associate, uh, Crimson photographer Dillon Quartermaine.

Dillon: Pleasure.

Claudette: Likewise. And, please, call me C.J. Love your dress.

Maxie: Thank you. I like yours.

Claudette: Thank you.

Maxie: And thank you for agreeing to meet with us. Not many people would agree to a job interview at a restaurant on the 4th of July.

Claudette: Oh, so not a problem.

Dillon: Ah, I forgot the mock-ups in the office upstairs. Let me just --

Maxie: Oh, it's lucky you're a photographer because if you were my assistant, I would fire you.

Dillon: Okay, I'm still getting double pay for the holiday, right?

Maxie: It's not looking good.

Dillon: Be right back.

Maxie: [Laughing] Okay. Sorry. Uh, join me.

Claudette: Thank you.

Maxie: Everything's a little crazy right now, so...

Claudette: Oh, I know how busy you must be with all these good-looking men around. I don't know how you get any work done.

Hayden: Feeling better?

Finn: Starting to. Thank you again for bringing my supply.

Hayden: Please. It was easy. Tracy?

Tracy: Wow. Hayden Barnes. What are you doing here?

Hayden: Well, I, um... In honor of the holiday, thought I would do some community service and speak to some prisoners in need of conversation.

Tracy: Huh.

Finn: It's nice to see your face. What brings you by?

Tracy: Actually, I am the bearer of good news. Dr. Mayes was murdered last night.

Griffin: The first two victims were infirm patients, which means the killer appears to consider himself, or herself, some sort of angel of mercy, putting the victims out of their misery.

Dr. Obrecht: Neither Lucas Jones nor Dr. Mayes were infirm.

Griffin: There the pattern isn't so clear-cut. Right now all we know for certain is that Dr. Finn was in jail during the time of this murder, so he can't be the killer.

Dr. Obrecht: No. [Clears throat] I suppose he cannot.

Franco: I have a question. Didn't you start working here just before the killings began?

Dr. Obrecht: Yes. How do we know you're not this so-called Angel of Mercy?

Griffin: You'll have to take it on faith. The worst thing we can do right now is accuse each other of this crime. If you'll excuse me, I have to go check on some labs.

Dr. Obrecht: Smart move, Franco. This will throw the suspicion off of you.

Franco: Liesl, why are you so worried about who looks guilty of this crime?

Maxie: I see you worked at On the Bias.

Claudette: For three years.

Maxie: Excellent boutique magazine. I love their editor.

Claudette: Carolyn was amazing. And I got a lot of great opportunities there.

Maxie: So then you freelanced for a year and a half.

Claudette: I did.

Maxie: Okay. Equally impressive titles. So, what makes you want to put roots down in one publishing company?

Claudette: I can only imagine how amazing it must be to work at Crimson right now. Nina Reeves has really turned that magazine around.

Maxie: She's an excellent collaborator.

Claudette: And that's what I love most about this -- the collaboration. I would love to be part of such a rich creative process.

Maxie: We should order.

Claudette: You're engaged!

Maxie: I am! [Laughs] I am, yeah, to the most amazing man that I have ever known. And patient. We're knee-deep in wedding plans, and he's only freaked out once. So, here, I'll show you a picture. So handsome, right?

Claudette: Yes, he is.

Maxie: Uh, so, what's your situation, if you don't mind me asking?

Claudette: Not at all.

Maxie: Great. Okay. So, um, married or engaged? Or single and loving it?

Claudette: There's no one special in my life right now, which just gives me more time to devote to the magazine.

Maxie: You should work for Crimson. No one's gonna ask you to forgo your personal life, and who knows, with all the people you meet walking around, you might find the one.

Finn: Uh, to clarify, did you refer to Dr. Mayes' murder as "good news"?

Tracy: Yes.

Hayden: Tracy, he was a human being.

Tracy: Oh. Well, obviously, you're not acquainted with his bedside manner. Oh, I see I'm being perceived as insensitive.

Hayden: Well... a little.

Tracy: Okay, I concede that perhaps his family may not consider his untimely death as a good thing. However, for you, it is a spectacular thing.

Finn: How so?

Tracy: Well, considering the fact that he was murdered while you were locked up in this place, you're officially off the suspect list.

Finn: Well, now I appreciate your enthusiasm. I do. But as you may recall, uh, that's not the reason why I'm in jail.

Tracy: No. You are in jail because you saved Baby Edward's life, for which I will never be able to repay you.

Finn: No, you don't -- You don't have to.

Tracy: And yet I am going to try. I'm gonna have a team of ELQ lawyers negotiate your release immediately.

Nathan: I need to know where you were at the time of the murder. According to your statement, you were visiting your mother.

Franco: Yes... I was. Well, that was easy. If you don't have any more questions --

Nathan: No, I do. I do. There's a 20-minute window before Elizabeth places you at the scene.

Franco: Um, I was at the cafeteria. I was getting a pudding pop, because they're delicious. Have you tried one? You should have one. Jake turned me onto them.

Nathan: Hmm. You were there for 20 minutes?

Franco: Mm, yeah. Then I left, and, um, I heard Elizabeth screaming, and then when I got to the room, Elizabeth was already on the floor with Dr. Mayes.

Nathan: Fair enough. I'm gonna need your receipt from the cafeteria.

Franco: Okay. You got me. Here's the thing. Um, the cafeteria might have been closed at that hour. Now, hypothetically, I might have an arrangement with some of the cafeteria staff where they give me free run of the walk-in, and in exchange, I give their kids free reign of all the crayons they can manage from the art therapy room.

Nathan: So your alibi is that you were stealing pudding pops from a closed cafeteria?

Franco: Yeah. Shh. [Chuckles] I mean, it's just so crazy, it's got to be true, right?

Nathan: [Chuckles]

Dr. Obrecht: Nurse Webber. Now that you've finished answering questions, you may feel free to go back to work.

Elizabeth: I am working, and you're not my boss anymore.

Dr. Obrecht: More's the pity.

Elizabeth: Hey. You all right? How'd it go with Nathan?

Jason: By the time I found the garden shed, Nikolas and Ava were gone.

Sam: Well, why don't you go back to Melton Arms and pick up their trail from there?

Jason: Uh, well, I, uh -- I was, um, detained for a bit.

Sam: What's that supposed to mean?

Jason: Well, it seems that Huxley didn't want witnesses, so he sent somebody to shut me up.

Sam: He did?

Jason: He did.

Sam: Where is that guy now?

Jason: Well, if he knows how to untie knots, he would have been able to get out of that chair and recuperate at home.

Sam: I knew we couldn't trust Huxley!

Jason: Yeah, well, Huxley's not the issue here. Once again, we've lost Nikolas and Ava, and now we've got to figure out a new way to find them.

Ava: Are you hungry? I am so hungry. Is there even any food here?

Nikolas: I'll look. Don't worry. My grandmother literally thought she was going to live forever. She stocked the cellar accordingly. I'll go down and see if I can scrounge up some provisions.

Ava: Good, thanks.

Nikolas: Oh. First I need to call my son.

Ava: Right now?

Nikolas: Well, don't worry. It's a safe call. I gave him a burner phone that nobody knows about.

Laura: Mmm!

Kevin: Mmm!

Laura: Oh, my God.

Kevin: Mmm!

Laura: This is delicious.

Kevin: Mm-hmm. Are you sure you don't want some?

Laura: It's really good.

Spencer: The hot-dog-devouring title is up for grabs! Bob "The Gullet" Manus retired, so now it's anyone's game! [Chuckles]

Kevin: And, look, we're in need of a fresh napkin. Laura, would you mind helping me track one down?

Laura: Sure.

Spencer: I can get one for you. After all, I'm not eating.

Laura: No, honey, that's all right, really. We'll be back before you know it.

Kevin: And, please, feel free to dig in. It's a holiday.

Laura: Kevin, thanks for tagging along with Spencer and me. I realize that it's sort of unorthodox to have a session this way.

Kevin: Unorthodox? Without the patient even knowing?

Laura: [Chuckles] Believe me --

Kevin: Yeah, it's unusual.

Laura: The patient knows. He -- He doesn't miss out on anything.

Kevin: Well, maybe we should just be open with him.

Laura: [Sighs] I didn't want to spook him. That's -- I kind of wanted the casual setting. I'm just so afraid that he's holding onto so much stuff that he'll completely break down later.

Spencer: Forgive me, hot dog gods, but I am weak!

[Cell phone ringing]

Spencer: Hello, Father?

Claudette: [Sighs]

Maxie: Okay, C.J., so, what would you change?

Claudette: I love everything. But...the typeface on this headline -- I think a serif font is a little too obvious, and I would go with something more modern, you know, to contrast. And on page 68 [sighs] I would scrap a few of these photos. Not that they're not gorgeous. It's just if you cut four or five, I think it would make a bolder statement.

Maxie: Huh.

Dillon: Wow, did -- did Maxie pay you to say all of that?

Claudette: What do you mean?

Dillon: No, it's just that she literally said the exact same thing this morning.

Maxie: Great minds. [Chuckles] And since Nina gave me carte blanche to make this decision, you are hired.

Claudette: Thank you! I can't wait to start working here.

Maxie: I can't wait for you to work here, either.

Kiki: That line was so long I thought they were gonna run out of soda before we got to the front.

Morgan: You know, you could have gotten a beer. You don't have to not drink, because I can't.

Kiki: [Chuckles] Well, considering I spent last Halloween running your mother off the road in an alcohol-induced stupor, probably best if we remain boring and sober together.

Morgan: Yeah, about that... Kiki, I just, uh... I want you to know that things are gonna be different now. You know, obviously, because I'm different.

Kiki: Okay. Like what?

Morgan: I don't know, there's just -- There's just a lot of things I can't do anymore. I can't -- I can't party and drink and -- [Chuckles] You know, just do all the crazy stuff a guy my age would normally do. And I don't know how fun that's gonna be for you. So I just -- Before we go any further down this road, I just -- I just want you to know what you're getting yourself into.

Finn: I appreciate you putting the lawyers to work and all, but I broke a lot of laws, and I don't think that even they can get me out of this one.

Tracy: Ohh. Never underestimate the power of an ELQ lawyer. In fact, I'm gonna go see what's happening with your release. Guard.

[Keys jingle]

[Lock disengages]

Finn: Man. Well, do you think Tracy can make that happen?

Hayden: [Chuckles] One way or the other, Tracy Quartermaine always gets what she wants.

Finn: [Chuckles]

Hayden: So, what about your job? I mean, even if you're not in jail, you're still suspended, right? How will you get your medication?

Finn: Should I be lucky enough to be released from this fine establishment, I will have my source re-route my supply to the hotel.

Hayden: Good. And if you're not so lucky, I've got you covered.

Finn: No. No. I appreciate everything you did for me, but I would never ask you to do that again. It's too dangerous.

Nathan: Thank you for coming in.

Dr. Obrecht: Of course. You're my son. If you need help, all you need to do is ask.

Nathan: Yeah. We need to talk about what's been going on in this hospital. I need the schedule of everyone who's worked in the last six months. Think you can provide me with that?

Sam: Well, Nikolas could go anywhere in the world. But what about Ava? She's got two daughters back in Port Charles. She's gonna have to return home to them soon at some point. But Nikolas -- He does have Spencer, and I'm sure he's gonna send for him.

Jason: So Nikolas would want someplace private, somewhere he knows so it's easier to blend in.

Sam: I don't know, maybe we should go back to those destinations we found on his computer. What?

Jason: It couldn't be that easy.

Sam: What?

Jason: [Sighs] Someplace private. Someplace Nikolas knows. A place where Spencer would feel comfortable. A place where Nikolas knows he wouldn't run into anybody who would recognize him.

Sam: What are you talking about?

Jason: Cassadine Island.

Sam: [Sighs]

Spencer: Father, are you there?

Nikolas: Hi. I, uh -- I just wanted to call you at our designated time, so that you didn't worry.

Spencer: It's okay if you miss one call. Just don't miss two.

Nikolas: [Chuckles] Yeah. I'll keep that in mind. How are you doing? Are you okay?

Spencer: As well as can be expected. Look, I'm afraid I can't talk right now.

Nikolas: There are people near?

Spencer: Uh, something like that.

Nikolas: Okay, well, say no more. Listen, I-I just wanted to tell you that I love you and that we're gonna be together again soon, okay?

Spencer: How soon?

Tonight when you go home, I want you to have a bag packed. Only one, okay?

Spencer: Okay.

Nikolas: I'll send someone for you shortly.

Spencer: That's wonderful, Father. I can't wait to see you again.

Laura: Spencer? Are you talking to your father? Spencer, I overheard you telling your father that something was gonna be wonderful.

Spencer: Yes, Grandmother, uh, I said that. The truth is I talk to Father all the time. I call his voicemail and leave a message, so I can hear his voice.

Nikolas: Spencer had to go.

Ava: Without saying goodbye? Are you sure everything's all right?

Nikolas: If anyone can improvise, it's Spencer.

Ava: Well, good. As long as he's okay. And if you don't mind...

Nikolas: Hmm? Oh, right. Sorry. Food.

Ava: Yeah, thanks.

Nikolas: I'll go get it.

Ava: [Sighs] I wish that I could read Russian. I bet this is pretty juicy stuff.

[Thudding in distance]

Ava: Nikolas?

[Wood creaks]

Sam: Devil's advocate? Nikolas has to know that Cassadine Island would be the first place that we would look for him.

Jason: Yeah, well, as far as Nikolas knows, everybody thinks he's dead. Why would he worry about anybody looking for him?

Sam: I don't know, but even if you're right, that place is a fortress.

Jason: Yeah. And I've broken into it before, right?

Sam: Yes.

Jason: I'm remembering the layout.

Sam: Okay, you're on to something, and it's the perfect place for Nikolas to communicate with Spencer without anyone knowing. Wait, who are you calling?

Jason: I need to call Spinelli. We need to know if Nikolas or Ava left London for Greece yesterday.

Sam: Okay, um, have him check commercial flights and private planes and see if it's under Nikolas or the alias that he's using, because if he doesn't think anyone's looking for him, he's not gonna cover his tracks.

Maxie: What are you doing later tonight?

Claudette: I don't know. Why do you ask?

Maxie: Well, there are fireworks at the park. I'm meeting my fiancÚ. I would like to introduce you. You're going, right?

Dillon: Yeah, I love fireworks.

Claudette: Thank you for the offer, but if I'm starting work tomorrow, I should really go home and prepare.

Maxie: No, it's Independence Day. Enjoy your last couple hours of freedom.

Claudette: Oh, thanks again for the offer, but I really want to make a good impression with Ms. Reeves tomorrow. I'm really excited to start working with you. Thank you so much.

Maxie: Of course. Thank you.

Dillon: I like her.

Maxie: Yeah.

Dillon: She is polished...

Maxie: Yeah.

Dillon: ...And intelligent.

Maxie: I know.

Dillon: Great ideas.

Maxie: Yes. You know what? I feel like we killed two birds with one stone.

Dillon: Okay, well, now I have no idea what you're talking about.

Maxie: Come on! She's obviously the most qualified, and we may have found somebody for you.

Dillon: [Laughing] Okay, I appreciate you looking out for me, but --

Maxie: [Stammers] It's not just me. She also said you were handsome.

Dillon: Really? No, that is not a good idea to mix business with pleasure.

Maxie: This is not about business ethics, is it? It's about Kiki.

Morgan: No matter what happens, even if you walk away as soon as this conversation's over...

Kiki: Morgan.

Morgan: ...I'm gonna stand on my two feet. I'm gonna stay sane. I'm gonna stay sober all the time because I do -- I want to be there for you like you've been there for me. And...that's -- That's all I got.

Kiki: That's all I need.

Tracy: What did I tell you? Dr. Hamilton Finn, you are free to go.

Finn: What? Really?

Tracy: No, actually, this is just a regular visit, and he's my plus-one. [Chuckles] And you.

Hayden: Oh, what?

Tracy: I don't know what your relationship is with Dr. Finn, but apparently, he thinks you're a decent human being. So I will endeavor to do the same.

Hayden: Thank you.

Finn: Wow, what a heart-warming moment. Um, perhaps we should go break a little bread and celebrate?

Hayden: I'm in.

Tracy: Uh, well, I would love to join you, but actually, I'm gonna take a rain check 'cause I would much prefer to go to the hospital, get you reinstated.

Nathan: It says here you used to practice medicine in New York City. Were you a priest there, as well?

Griffin: I was.

Nathan: I used to live there. My ex-wife went to church all the time. What parish did you belong to?

[Knocks on door]

Nurse: Detective West, I'm sorry to interrupt, but you've got an urgent call from the police station on line 2.

Nathan: Thank you. I'm sorry for dragging you down here. I appreciate your time.

Griffin: That's all?

Nathan: For now. I may have some questions in the future.

Griffin: Uh, no problem. Whenever you need me.

Nathan: Detective Nathan West.

Elizabeth: Can I ask you a question?

Franco: Yeah. Sure.

Elizabeth: How is it that you showed up in that room in the exact moment you did?

Franco: I came into that room because you were shouting, "Someone come into the room."

Elizabeth: [Sighs] So, you were there to help me?

Franco: I didn't kill that guy. I didn't kill any of these people. You believe that, right?

Nathan: Wait, so, a woman called, didn't leave her name, specifically requesting that I go to the Metro Court right now regarding police business? All right. All right. I'll be right there. Damn it, Maxie.

Elizabeth: You know you didn't do it. It doesn't matter what I believe.

Franco: No, what you believe matters a lot to me. I-I don't want you to think that the guy that brought you the toaster the other night is the same guy that kills people.

Elizabeth: [Sighs] I don't think that.

Franco: Are you sure?

Elizabeth: I believe you.

Franco: You do?

Elizabeth: It was the toaster that clinched it.

[Elevator dings]

Tracy: Have you seen my sister-in-law Dr. Quartermaine?

Nurse: Um, I'm afraid I don't know where she is at the moment.

Dr. Obrecht: Perhaps there's something that I can help you with.

Tracy: By all means. Because of you, Dr. Finn spent the better part of 24 hours in a jail cell, and I'm here to tell you that your persecution of him ends now.

Dr. Obrecht: Dr. Finn has engaged in highly suspicious behavior. He refused to take a drug test. It was well within the purview of this hospital to suspend him and to confiscate and destroy his research.

Tracy: What?

Dr. Obrecht: You heard me. The instant Dr. Finn lost his lab privileges, his work station and records were sterilized using appropriate procedures.

Tracy: What's appropriate about sabotaging and destroying a man's work?

Dr. Obrecht: Dr. Finn works with infectious diseases. This hospital cannot risk the contamination. Naturally, everything had to be destroyed.

Tracy: So you frame him. You destroy his work. You're the one who deserves to be in a jail cell.

Finn: Well, now that Roxy's had something to eat, so can we.

Hayden: What are you in the mood for?

Finn: Anything that doesn't come on a plastic tray.

Hayden: Well, it's good to see you have an appetite. Whatever those illegal drugs are, they must be working.

Finn: Hmm.

[Cell phone ringing]

Finn: Um, excuse me.

Hayden: Yeah, go ahead.

Finn: Yeah?

Hayden: Yeah.

Finn: Hey. What's going on? Everything all right? What are you talking about?

Ava: Nikolas? Nikolas? Is that you?

Nikolas: What are you doing?

Ava: Oh! [Laughs] I'm sorry. I, um -- I heard a-a door slam after you left all by itself.

Nikolas: Oh. It's just a draft. Now, are you gonna enjoy this bounty or not?

Ava: Yeah, sure. What have you got?

Nikolas: Caviar, duck pÔtÚ, smoked salmon.

Ava: Ahh.

Nikolas: What's the 4th of July without a picnic, Cassadine style? What? What is it?

Ava: No, I-I've just been so preoccupied with outrunning Huxley I forgot all about the holiday.

Nikolas: Well, relax. No one will find us here.

Elizabeth: Ohh! [Laughs]

Franco: Got it.

Elizabeth: You got it. You got it.

Franco: I got it, yeah.

Elizabeth: Thank you.

Franco: You know what, I'll take it all. Here. Wow.

Elizabeth: Great.

Franco: Are these, uh...

Elizabeth: Thanks.

Franco: Are these for the boys, or are you -- Are you a competitive eater? This is for the hot dog eating contest?

Elizabeth: The boys are over there. Do you want to join us?

Franco: I'd be delighted.

Elizabeth: Great.

Dr. Obrecht: All of the evidence pointed directly to Dr. Finn.

Tracy: And by "all of the evidence," do you mean the syringe that you found in his locker that you were not authorized to search? Seems to me Dr. Finn has a pretty good case for unlawful suspension.

Dr. Obrecht: That is not my problem.

Tracy: Not yet. It is Dr. Finn's problem, and he's gonna have to figure out what he's gonna do about it. What I'm gonna do is get him reinstated immediately.

Finn: Yeah, well, thanks for letting me know. Yeah, I'll talk to you later.

Hayden: Is everything okay?

Finn: Yeah, it's nothing. Uh, these cucumber sandwiches look pretty good.

Hayden: You know, I'm sitting right here, and it clearly didn't look like nothing.

Finn: That was my source.

Hayden: For your medication?

Finn: Mm-hmm. Apparently, since my arrest, there's -- there's been a problem with customs. And now that I'm under scrutiny, said source no longer wants to provide me with said medication.

Hayden: But aren't those the drugs that are keeping you alive?

Finn: [Sighs]

Spencer: We have to hurry! I've fasted all day for this, and now victory is imminent!

Laura: [Sighs]

Kevin: Uh, you know, what he's doing -- calling that voicemail -- well, children who have lost a parent often try to reconnect with them in some way. I-It's perfectly normal.

Laura: Yes, I know. It's just that for a moment, I really believed that Spencer was talking to Nikolas.

Nikolas: What?

Ava: What? Oh, when I dreamt about being a princess, I never imagined I'd be having a 4th of July picnic in a haunted mansion.

Nikolas: This place isn't haunted.

Ava: Then you're no fun.

Nikolas: No, seriously, ghosts are afraid to be here.

[Both chuckle]

Nikolas: So, do you have a wine preference? White, red, Italian, French, Californian, New Zealand?

Ava: Wow, sounds like you have quite a wine cellar.

Nikolas: Come on. I'll let you choose for yourself.

[Jason & Sam enter the room.]

[Cell phone ringing]

Nathan: Be patient, Max. I'm here. [Scoffs] Claudette?

On the next "General Hospital" --

Sonny (to Carly): If she doesn't get a confession out of Julian, then she's gonna be tried for murder.

Julian: I have a surefire way to keep you out of prison.

Alexis: You're going to confess?

Ava: [Screams]

Jason: (to Sam): Guess they're downstairs.

Claudette (to Nathan): There's something that you need to know.
